    Taking people off the BBC for a while has never stopped their popularity.

    e.g. Jonathon Woss and Russell Brand.

    Clarkson will live to shoot more strikers.

    Smug and self satisfied to list but two of his attributes.

    I don't have a problem with Stephen Fry, or Jeremy Clarkson for that matter.

    I do have a problem with all these people that seem to be full time professional offendees. They actually seem to go out of their way to find reasons to be offended.

    Lose the chip and grow up.

    I don't think either of those apply to him, but i suppose he might rub some up the wrong way. Still not a complete **** like Clarkson though :rolleyes:

    Totally agree; these people make me so angry. Even angrier than having to watch the smug, self-satisfied Clarkson ruining Top Gear. But people should never be forced to apologise for things like this.:mad:

    Surely it's up to the public whether they watch them or not. I know if I don't like who's on my tv screen I immediately switch over

    The whole thing was totally overblown, it only formed the second part of of his comment which was said as the BBC had to be balanced :). So obviously humerous, the reaction has been completely ridiculous.

    The BBC pandering to the PC brigade.

    Shoot the PC brigade...every last one of them.

    And therein lies the case for keeping Clarkson on. Just to get up the noses of the BBC and the PC whingers.

    He serves a purpose.

    I was about to suggest you are in fact JC and I claim my £500 :thumb:but then I realised you didn't say to shoot the PC brigade in front of their own families. So you're not JC and I don't get my £500:mad:

    I don't really mind the beeb employing people that annoy me but I do love the idea of a tv license that costs less.

    So cap their salaries, if they can do better elsewhere and I miss them then I can choose to pay extra to enjoy their programmes.

    And yes Fry is patronising, he was excellent as Jeeves and not too good anywhere else. IMO,
