Hats off to the producers of last night’s Top Gear. I don’t think I’ve laughed so much in ages.
Jeremy Clarkson did a proper review of the Ford Fiesta. It answered questions like:
- Can I afford it?
- Will it break down?
- Is it economical?
- Is it easy to park?
- What if I go to the shopping centre and get chased by baddies in a Corvette?
- What if I need to launch a beach assault with the Royal Marines?
You know, useful stuff.
Cue one of the best Top Gear films of all time. Clarkson roared around the inside of Festival Place in Basingstoke, knocking stuff all over the place. Being a bit of a dive, the mess was actually an improvement.
Watch it here (48mins in)

I’m going to start a list. In fact, it’s more of a league table of moronism. Added to it will be MPs who jump on a ludicrous bandwagon.
1. Chris Mole
Chris Mole is the Labour MP for Ipswich.
He’s called on the BBC to sack Jeremy Clarkson for comments he made on this weekend’s Top Gear.
Clarkson was driving a lorry, and in a moment of humour suggested that lorry drivers might occasionally kill a prostitute.
Ipswich, of course, is particularly sensitive to the killing of prostitutes.
There’s only one problem – the Ipswich murders were carried out by a forklift truck driver. Which last time I checked, was quite different.
Anyone with a modicum of a smidgen of a sense of humour would realise Clarkson was taking the piss – even lorry drivers found it funny.
This is obviously all to do with the Brand/Ross, and if
Adrian Chris Mole thinks this will get him taken seriously, he’s quite a bit wrong.

I’m settling down, eagerly awaiting tonight’s Top Gear. It’s the best thing on television in Britain.
BUT IT’S NOT FRICKING ON!!!
BBC Wales, in their infinite wisdom, have replaced it with sodding snooker. It’s not on until 10pm. It’s a Sunday night. I quite fancied an early one. I also wanted to watch the show that’s on afterwards. And they’ve gone and buggered up my evening. And my housemates’ evening. Top Gear is the only thing we all watch.
SO THANKYOU BBC WALES, YOU STUPID IDIOTS. THERE’S A RED BUTTON ON THE REMOTE CONTROL. IT’S THERE FOR A REASON.
And you thought I was going to write some general slur against the Welsh people.
EDIT: It’s getting silly. It’s 10.40pm, Top Gear’s supposed to be on by now, and we’re being treated to A RUDDY GREAT BIG END-CREDITS SEQUENCE!!!! I HATE YOU, BBC WALES.
