    quote David Rogers:

    But who here…or anywhere writes in to complain about Mock The Week and some of Frankie Boyle’s comments.

    …em, nobody. It’s taken for what is is and from who he is…it’s expected, but not overly enjoyed.

    He does ‘jokes’ on pedophilia, incest, bestiality, racial stereotypes, ethnic cleansing, recently dead public figures , disaster victims and executed electricians…the list of taboo subjects chosen specifically to get a response goes on.

    Yet ‘we’ all just ‘wince’, suck in some air and go ‘oooh, baaaad’.

    I can’t stand the British tabloid press…no, actually I can’t stand the press in general…lying, deceitful, scare mongering misery pimps.

    Dave difference is, you are only one of two people that watch Mock the week; more than twenty have been known to tune into top gear, 😉

    Anyway Clarkson, as a motoring "journalist" is a joke anyway, and is tabloid tele to perfection, and fits your press description to a tee, but he is a good entertainer, if you like that sort of thing,
