What a d1ck.

I dont understand bus lanes. Why do poor people have to get to places quicker than I do?

What else does one expect from Jeremy Clarkson?
The man is disgraceful and I am so glad I, for one, do not help pay his salary.

He just can't handle them... not even the later variants which they made more "women-friendly" so the wives of the rich fellas can drive them too :p

This may be the end of him



Jeremy Clarkson has begged viewers' forgiveness after he appeared to use the N-word during filming of his BBC programme Top Gear.

In a video statement posted online on Thursday, he said that he had tried to obscure the word when reciting the "eeny, meeny, miny, moe" nursery rhyme to chose between two cars, but that his efforts to do so "weren't quite good enough".

I remember that nursery rhyme from the 70s. The kids today still use it but the n word has been replaced by something much more innocuous. I don't mean to defend him, but if you're of a certain age, the original wording just pops into your head unbidden. Best not to use that rhyme at all, then the word stays out of the head, but in fairness that seems very unintentional. It would be different if he'd called someone it in a temper.

Good point, lol. They can't sack him, he's just too bloody amusing. The caravan holiday episode which ends with them burning their caravan to smithereens deserves an Oscar. And no-one actually takes him seriously anyway.
