So, the BBC has finally sacked Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear.
Given how much money the programme makes for the Beeb, I would say that decision might be described as "courageous".
Your humble Devil has sod all interest in cars*, but I did rather enjoy watching Top Gear. I think, basically, because it was three chaps—mercifully free from the aching right-on-ness of most people these days—arse-ing about in colossally brilliant machines built by very clever human beings.
It seems that the other May and Hammond—in a decent British show of solidarity with a mate—will probably not continue with the programme. Good for them.
So, the upshot is that I think that the BBC are totally wrong to sack Clarkson. Totally and utterly wrong.
