What happened to that guy is terrible, but getting Clarkson sacked isn't going to bring back the dead. Speeding doesn't kill: bad driving kills. If speed kills then why are there so few deaths in Formula 1?
In the words of the great man himself: speed doesn't kill. Now stopping quickly: that's what gets you.
Does this guy believe Clarkson is the only person to have broken the speed limit? Has he never done it himself? Holier than thou, methinks!
Bring back Raymond Baxter, says I...oh hold on he's gone up to the big Battle of Britain Squadron in the sky, er the baldy bloke, nah he's boring. Get rid of Clarkson and "Top Gear' would disappear down the ratings plughole, still wouldn't put it pastt the Beeb.
So Jezza states he drove on a 'public road' at 180+ mph ?
He doesn't actually state it was a Brit road does he?
His programme shows that he, and his acolytes (May & Hamster) have probably done that on many roads in other countries, where it is legal, or the local authorities have closed the road to the public for the test of whatever monster they are testing at the time.
He does take the p*** out of all and everything, as well we have seen on TG.
I don't see people calling for the ending of car racing, which happen to exceed this speed on 'public' roads in Monte Carlo, or biking on the Isle of Man!
Big mouth, big ego, overpaid, spoilt - so what ? (so are our pollies ), makes a comment that annoys someone (hmmmm :scratch: - just like our pollies .... !!! ) at least he entertains .. !!
And if the Liebour propaganda machine sacks him, I'm sure Murdoch will snap him up, and at a vastly more higher salary.
Jezza is a journalist so therefore is going to be controversial by right.
I challenged him a few years ago to come out on an ambulance for a 12 hour shift after he made some nasty comments about us.
He didnt reply but the editor of the times did expressing regret at his comments.
However,a few months later Jezza was rushed into hospital from his home after a heart scare i think.
The following week he issued a statement withdrawing all his comments and singing our praises and admitted he'd been a prat.
BZ to him,at least he admitted he got it wrong.
I like his style and his manner in not being afraid to say what he believes in,even if he gets it wrong occasionally.
At least he has the balls to own up to it.
Have to agree!!! Its amazing the people making excuses for Jizza :sign10: , who admits breaking the law, hes a laugh, show would go down the pan, he attacks the government, does work for the forces etc etc etc. Whilst I have no real interest in cars I do enjoy watching the show, its one of the best entertainment shows on the BBC. Now do yourselfs a favour and stop making excuses and arse kissing a middle aged man who appears on TV. :cya:
There is no speed limit on the I.O.M outwith the built up area The roads are closed for the racing but they are normal 2 way roads when the bikers race doen the mountain emulating their heros with opposing traffic for the rest of the year.
