It's hard to reply when you can't see the screen for the tears of laughter.
That's one of the funniest spoof articles I've read in ages.
Clarkson is an excellent presenter and speaks his mind. He also speaks for many others who are too scared to open their mouths.
The anti-Clarkson movement - the environmentalists only succeed in bringing their campaign to notice by bullying and abuse, yet they always pretend to be ethical. Most of them are no better than a street thug and have less moral principles.

Jeremy Clarkson in one word: tw@t.

|Most [environmentalists] are no better than a street thug and have less moral principles. |
I'm not a huge environmentalist, myself, but I don't understand the basis of this assertion.
As for Clarkson, I find him a bit hit and miss.
Occasionally he irritates me, but sometimes I can't pick myself up off the floor for laughing.
The best thing I've ever seen on Top Gear was when he raced the plane to Switzerland.

JC is a complete a.r.s.e but a highly amusing one. He also points out some very interesting enviromental facts occasionally, for instance, trains use more fuel per passenger mile than most cars.

Thought he was a right fool then saw him present teh 'Greatest Briatain' and changed my mind.
he's ok in small doses

I am not particularly into cars, but I enjoy watching Top Gear because of the 'chemistry' that seems to exist between the presenters, and the jokes / comments they make about each other.
I also really enjoy JC comments on Chirac and the French. Comments on the Millau bridge last week were quite funny - thanks for that JC (Jacques Chirac)
ps. just for the record ... I AM French

"I also really enjoy JC comments on Chirac and the French. Comments on the Millau bridge last week were quite funny - thanks for that JC (Jacques Chirac) "
I missed that but I guess it was about the French burning French cars cause they are so crap or something, which is incidentally true ;)

no it was about Jaco saying that the Millau bridge was a symbol of France technology, thatit was a "prodigy of art and architecture — a new emblem of French civil engineering."
The bridge will serve as a symbol of "a modern and conquering France" he said ...
He forgot to mention that the designer was british ;)
ps. regarding French cars, I 've got one and they're not that bad [touch wood & rabbit foot]

Oddly enough my gf found me watching Top Gear on one of the BBC's internationally available channels, and asked me in tones of wonderment exactly what the expletive I was doing, because although I'm not an environmentalist or anything I just don't like cars. It's the humor and generally not-taking-it-all-that seriously I like about the show, sometimes I get a good laugh out of it.
The episode where Clarkson drove a Rolls Royce into a swimming pool was a bit over the top though

Very much like...I've just had to write content about practically every car manufacturer in the world...Clarkson was a massive breathe of fresh air, and gave me plenty of inspiration...do a Google search on his name and the Times Online has bucketloads of his articles, nearly every one has something sidesplitting in it.

love him. the tv show is a bit too scripted but his writings on the Times Online is hilarious. the review of the bugatti veyron for example is excellent.
he claims he drove that thing at 385Km/h on a public road ...
