Chin up, Andrew Mitchell, chauffeur's aren't all they're cracked up to be, just ask P Diddy and the Queen

Status symbols don't come much bolder than being ferried around in a chauffeur-driven car. It's a sure-fire way to let everybody know that you are somebody.

Mr Becht decided to go public with details of his offer in an attempt to bounce the Avon board into talks, but they said the company was worth far more.
