Nice car... got a light?
German Lefties, envious of those achieving success, are striking back with matches and barbecue lighters:
In Berlin, a growing band of leftwing car arsonists have become the face of an increasingly vociferous campaign against the gentrification of the German capital. In 2009, 216 mostly luxury cars were torched on the streets of the city, compared with 135 the previous year.
So common is the practice that spotting the attacks has become a popular pastime, spawning an obscure website, "Burning Cars", where contributors track the models that have been targeted.
German car-torchers are mere amateurs compared to the world champs, the French.
