  1. Gone on, you know it makes sense :)

    Go to Channel 4's site on the 100 Worst Britons and you can vote for Clarkson to be such! Go on, you
    know you want to ;-)

    Indeed you can even *add a name* to be included in the list... I wonder who could possibly, no,
    don't go there :)

    Cheers, helen s

    Sorry Helen, can't do it.... 'fraid I have to admit to having a grudging admiration for anyone who
    can be so self-indulgently hedonistic. Watching him foam at the mouth about the dreaded internal
    combustion engine (the bigger, the better) certainly brightens my day up. His unbridled boyish
    enthusiasm is a joy to behold. He didn't invent the thing, nor has he created the poor excuse for a
    transport system that we have in this country. He is merely caught in the hypnotic spell that is
    power !! ;-) Gordon Brown gets my vote !! Surely as he's a Scot and the Scots have self-governance
    or some such thing now, he should bugger off back to Scotland and stop faffing about with other
    countries affairs ?....(or is that me being naive and over simplistic ?) Cheers, Dave.

    Shame you only get a selection of 10 - I could've been ticking boxes all evening! Or am I just
    getting cynical in my old age? By the way, it seems that Iain & Duncan Smith count as one choice ;-)

    I couldn't find that Fiona creature on TV who puts me off my breakfast, she fills every place in
    my top ten.

    Too hard. Clarkson? Beadle? Thatchler? Tony Parsons? The ineffably tedious Tar Paulin[1]?
    Michael Howard?

    Sorry, but no go. I chose Trinny and Susannah - IMNSHO, both are jerks of the first order. I also
    didn't get the point that one could vote for more than one nasty Brit so I shall have to revisit the
    site and plonk a few more plonkers down. Did I see Jeremy Spake's name in there?

    The unmentioned name I decided to add was my own ... and why not? I challenge anyone in this NG to
    state that I have never been a pain in the proverbial arse.

    James

    PS Naturally, I reserve the right to add Clarkson's name to my list of ten.

    I would have thought that Guy would have been tempted to add the name of a certain anti-speed limit
    campaigner to the list.

    sorry I got a bit carried away there! Clarkson in second place and Tony Parsons in third.

    I presume you mean *that* Paul Smith, rather than the fashion designer bloke. Apparently, in his
    younger years, the latter did a fair bit of racing whilst living in Nottingham - coincidentally,
    fellow designer Jeff Banks [1] is also a keen cyclist!

    [1] Always found him rather annoying in the past, probably due to his uncanny likeness to
    irritating TV footie pundit Trevor Brooking. Banks later redeemed himself once I found out he
    was a bike fan!

    Nope, I certainly meant the 'newly revealed as a driving Nazi' version! Could there be any other?
