I tried to sign the petition to reinstate Clarkson, but the website wouldn’t accept my email address – firstname.lastname@example.org...
Having said that, I do actually quite like Jeremy Clarkson; he is an amusing, witty and well-informed journalist, but he is a terminal yobbo. It will be interesting to see how the BBC wrestle with the potential drop in revenue for their Top Gear programme vs the principle of last-chance Jeremy…
Still, anyone capable of such an intelligent take on Isambard Kingdom Brunel, as Clarkson did for the Greatest Britons programme, really can’t be all bad.
