Clarkson in trouble AGAIN!
« on: March 11, 2015, 03:42:11 PM »
I'm hoping they sack him this time. Punching people in the face whilst we the license payers pay him millions??  Although thousands will disagree I would like to see him go and get a proper motoring program instead.

It is all "allegedly" therefore I reckon it is yet another publicity stunt.

Good news Clarkson suspended - bad news it's not from a scaffold . Unfortunately he will survive as over 100,000 have signed the online petition , where can I suggest the opposite  :)

Here you are Bob. Spred the word.
http://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/sack-jeremy-clarkson         I've signed it because I think Clarkson is a tw-t. The sooner they get another presenter the better. I much prefer the classic car show with Quentin Wilson and that chick.

Prescott punched a guy during an election. This was deemed more than fair, indeed he seemed to gain by it. At that point it was abundantly clear to me that fair play has nothing to do with it. We are a pugnacious breed and secretly like these sorts of incidents, but cannot admit it.
I have not much time for Clarkson either. He stands for the success of ignorance. It is totally in keeping that he will get caught leaching, having a bundle and saying things your not allowed to say. He has turned it into a very lucrative enterprise supported by those are, or would like to be, like he is. The fact that this makes the BBC more money than just about any other programme buts them in a very weak position. Sky or an independent will be waiting to snap him up.
The Beeb meantime will attempt to manage a change in the programme but hope to maintain its ratings by employing a more amenable twit, should Clarkson go. That has 95% failure written on it before it even starts. Top Gear is not really about cars anymore. If you want Squinting Wilson the format has to change. There will be an element of education. The Clarkson fans do not want that. They want the three musketeers smashing up cars in a new and thrilling adventure.
Mind you we could have Clarkson fight Brian Blessed for the position. Cannot see that lasting very long.
