Hullo all.

"It stops estate car beside parking notice" = brake pad. P for parking, AD for notice but how exactly is the brake arrived at?

"Food for upwardly mobile lefties?" = stew. I always thought the wets were the middle of the road liberals...

Cheers.

Don't the Americans call an estate car a 'shooting brake'?

I think 'wets' describes somewhat left-wing members of centre-right political parties (so they are sort of middle of the road, as you said).
