  1. I'm sorry but I don't understand your grammar.
  2. Sassenach, Brit, Limey, Pommy, Pom, Tommy, Rosbif, Angol Anything there ring a bell? ---------- Post added 20-03-2015 at 14:07 ---------- I love it.. http://www.itv.com/news/2015-03-20/clarkson-petition-arrives-at-the-bbc-by-tank/
  3. Fortunately all the Labour MPs who got banged up in jail for fraud are out now freeing up places should there be any truth in the alegations.
  4. I believe there is a cost for hiring a Ford Fiesta. I paid £20 the other day to hire a carpet shampooer so paying £40 to hire a Ferrari sounds good value. I hear Guido Fawkes has hired a tank to use to deliver the petition once it hits a million signatures. That would be "So Top Gear".
  5. Apparently not. You can even buy that at ASDA. http://www.asda-gifts.co.uk/Driving-Experiences-Supercars-BN-11xZ1o1.aspx?cm_mmc=google-_-Gifts&mkwid=se0xTHyXo_dc&pcrid=39209678343&pkw=supercar%20driving%20experience&pmt=e&gclid=CPXO57T2tsQCFWEOwwod2UcAyg
  6. That's pretty much what 5th Gear does and they get an average audience of 142,000. But that probably includes the ones in nursing homes where the TV is left running all day. Clarkson has been sacked from Top Gear previously and went off to make his speed videos. The BBC brought him back after 3 years when the show had gone down the pan.
  7. There are programs on other channels that do that. They get rather less viewers than the 5.4 million average who watch Top Gear. It might well happen that JC JM and RH leave and move to another channel where they revive their lunacy in one of these other programs, and the BBC do start doing shows about Citroen Picassos. If that happens I suspect that most current Top Gear viewers will change over to their prefered formula and the few who watched the other channel will switch to the BBC.
  8. I think it is what mates do. I suspect that should Clarkson jump ship and move to another channel the reason for their decision will become apparent.
  9. I doubt it will make much difference anyhow. I suspect JC will move to another channel. He will take Hammond and May with him as well as most of the 5.4 million viewers who watch each episode.
  10. They are taking the petition to the BBC tomorrow, so sign now to take it past the million signatures. https://www.change.org/p/bbc-reinstate-jeremy-clarkson?tk=N8Ume-LigDtrsdVjhRIKEiYs30bmhRkjS0bhUi2_ves&utm_source=petition_update&utm_medium=email
  11. I'm just allowing you to keep making a fool of yourself. You do it really well by the way. By the way if you want to talk about his comfortable upbringing isn't that rather talking about his parents. You need to make up your mind. I can't see he got any benefits many others didn't. His parents were a salesman and a teacher & his education cost less than the 60,000 students who are currently at university in Sheffield. ---------- Post added 19-03-2015 at 12:27 ---------- http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/11482025/James-May-and-Richard-Hammond-refuse-to-film-Top-Gear-without-Jeremy-Clarkson.html James May and Richard Hammond refuse to film Top Gear without Jeremy Clarkson The two co-hosts rejected an offer to present the last three shows without the suspended star
  12. How much was the mortgage on this house? ---------- Post added 19-03-2015 at 10:47 ---------- The fees at Hill House School are currently £4500. To put that in context it is half the cost that folk pay to go to university.
  13. I think a lot of folk assume those on zero hours contracts are not happy with the arrangement. I know a couple of retired fireman who were put out to grass aged 55. They enjoy liesure activities but also work zero hours contracts for a funeral director. They are only needed as pallbearers when there is a funeral, but rather like the freedom of picking and choosing which days they work.
