Today's London Daily Mail reports that Sir Paul is experiencing car trouble. It seems that after enjoying a lovely dinner with Heather at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant at Claridge's Hotel in Central London (London's most glamorous restaurant) the chauffeur wasn't able to start Sir Paul' s new Rolls-Royce Phantom. Onlookers report:
"It was hilarious. They were sat there in all their finest in the back of a sparkling Rolls that was spluttering and coughing like an old banger - it was all very Del Boy... He [Sir Paul] was getting really hot under the collar, shouting and leaning over to give him [the chauffeur] a rollicking. It was much more than your usual backseat driving. You could hear him clearly from outside the car and those doors and windows are pretty thick. Heather also looked pretty unhappy about things. He [Sir Paul] caused such a commotion that one of the hotel doormen came to see if everything was all right."
Admitting defeat, Sir Paul asked the doorman to hail a cab. Sir Paul was seen grinning as he climbed into the taxi for his three mile ride home.
