To be honest – Top Gear has generally sucked for the last 18 months. It’s now just 3 lads getting paid to aimlessly mess about. It’s just an entertainment show – a platform for Clarkson’s ego to stand upon.
I realise Clarkson started as a journalist…and is still sort of one for a bit of a laugh with his ‘motoring’ column.
Thing is…I quite like his brand of humour…
What irks me is that a couple of jokes made in poor taste is getting the public (due to the press) more worried & worked up than the economy crashing, US presidency changing, the hundreds of deaths in the UK this winter from fuel poverty…etc.
Nothing quite like the tabloid press to whip up the masses – wouldn’t stoop so low as to buy a paper if it was only for the bottom of a rat’s cage.
