Nope, just happened to be near the Cenotaph when mucking about in a car. I don't see how they're "disrespecting the war dead" or whatever.

Outrage and taking offence rules OK.

Surely this fake outrage was the whole point.

Just a publicity stunt to show that they can be as bad boy as Clarkson.

I suspect that the BBC keep a list of semi-professional offendees that they ring up when they want to manufacture some news.

Evans, and other BBC types, have been on the BBC today glibly saying that the scene will not be in the final item.

So, how much of our licence fee did it cost to close the roads, hire all those police and film crew to film that one sequence?

Probably, the Cenotaph never was going to be in the film. I expect camera angles were set up to avoid that happening. The donuts were also some distance from the memorial, just appearing closer due to shortening.

I can understand some would see it as disrespect if it was shown as the photo portrayed and the Donuts were by the memorial, but as it was performed I doubt there would be any offence. I fully expect the BBC is enjoying the current publicity, even if they didn't orchestrate it.

Isn't there an old WW II jeep tyre on top of the Cenotaph, or am I mistaken ?
