You know he is just playing a character don't you?

In truth he is a little rich Paddington Bear and jar fastening-heir who drives an 8 year old Ford Focus.

It never fails to amaze me how many people think "Jeremy Clarkson" on TV is a real person.

I am so sick of Auntie Pravda toeing the line for the Brown Broadcasting Corp.

Why should I pay this NuLabour propaganda tax?

I almost wonder if the BBC is allowing Clarkson to build up a reputation as a Brown-basher so that they can hold him up as evidence that they're not biased, i.e. using a cartoon character who calls Brown a cünt as a smokescreen to deflect attention from their actual news and political coverage.

i may agree with most of the above, but as a petrol head i thought it was the best Top Gear for a while

I was thinking this exact same thing. He is the token Brown hater; the BBCs inherant left wing bias is a serious issue that needs to be tackled very strongly. (I am not anti-BBC and don't mind a reasonable license fee)

How much did he inherit from the Kilner side?

Top gear is the funniest comedy program on tv. I'm being serious. It makes me laugh more than anything else on tv.

Jonathan Ross 18 million (originally) for a three year contract. Now that isn't funny, in fact considering in effect the tax payer pays for him, its a bloody outrage.

Jonathon Ross is so yo blow average it's not funny. I found it vaguely interesting for the three or so episodes that my wife made me watch. After that I refused to watch it, because it was just more of the same old drivel.

I certainly don't see why he gets any more than any other muppet on T.V.

What was Clarkson on? 1.2 million or something?

Yes, Clarkson is so cutting edge, isn't he? :lol:

******ing hell, who writes the scripts for these overgrown schoolboys?

A dwarf (punchline - legs dangling out of bonnet), a bimbo ( usual jokes about thick women which the girl was willing to do to get on TV) , and a Manuel (He doesn't speak English! apologies to Andrew Sachs if he was upset)

Now lets pretend to buy these cars at auction ( who on earth would bid for a car when the Top Gear film crew was controlling the auction?) Now lets film this 'rally' and do retakes and scripted dialogue, lets make the cars break down when we need comic effect, we've got our own mechanics to fix them up.

We can edit it back in London and put it out as a documentary type programme. :lol:

Good entertainment, but some people think it's real! :lol:

Not a penny. However, coming from wealth his parents were very keen he should attend Repton.

Which isn't the first thing most travelling salesmen tend to think of for their kids. Cultural capital innit.

Still, if you enjoy thinking of him as a grumpy everyman go ahead, hes just a bloke on TV.

Clarkeson's got a second home on the Isle of Man. It's probably lost money, and he blames Brown.

He's not too popular on the Isle of Man, having bought a lighthouse home on a particularly scenic route around the coast.

I think he's wrong on that - it's a bit like buying a house near a live music pub and complaining about the noise - but bang on about Brown.

Maybe not but I have a friend who attended Repton, his parents owned a takeaway in the Midlands.

Would you like chips with that? One for each shoulder...

I think that Jeremy Clarkson is as bad at being a motoring presenter as Gordon Brown is at being prime minister. All we see these days on Top Gear is a kind of petrolheads' Last of the Summer Wine, with three bafoons being given silly motoring related challenges....! Trying to cross the Sahara Desert in a Trabant with a plastic hippo on the roof and a wheel missing isn't really serious motoring journalism is it?

No, but remember it's just motoring porn. Constant bombardment of how many horse power you need (yeh!, i'll see you in the traffic jam on Monday morning, I bet my Ford Fiesta keeps up with your SLK Mercedes) :lol: nought to 60 - in how many seconds? :lol:

His personal interests are a million miles (or indeed pounds) away from most of the people who feel is speaking for them. It is no different from those "cosy chat over coffee with Carol Vorderman" credit adverts in that regard. She is just like them after all, with her 17 million pounds. Consider how they'd feel about some city trader in a suit fronting the same ad who doesn't in fact have even a tenth of La Vorderman's net worth.

This is fine, Clarkson is playing a role and people seem to like it, nothing wrong with that.

Excuse me if I find his pantomiming around about the price of fuel or whatever amusing. Its no less patronising or dishonest than Harriet Harman's poor little heart bleeding for the poor little urchins or Blair bleating about social mobility. Its just a faux right-wing version.

Meanwhile I understand the Tories are pretty unhappy at the possibility of the new version of "Brideshead Revisited" screening close to a General Election. You can't claim these things don't matter.

I like Jezza's outspoken style, and Top Gear used to be unmissable but it's a very, very tired format now. The bits where they talk about and actually review cars are great but the staged challenges are tiresome and at times embarrassingly unfunny. Richard Hammond's cringeworthy childishness is just annoying and James May is akin to the creepy uncle you hope never comes around at Christmas <shudders>

He was brought up in Tickhill. Lovely place - we looked into moving there - but the local secondary schools are sooooo dreadful that even mere mortals like us were going to be looking into private education.
