In Topic: jeremy Clarkson

Clarkson created the persona. He was developing it during the first, cancelled, run of Top Gear and then obviously perfected it during the second which, as people who think you should be allowed to punch colleagues never seem to tire of saying, he owned the rights to.

I'm quite prepared to believe that what's on screen is exaggerated, not least because it seems to be a fairly commonly repeated claim, but the creation is his own.

So was he sending someone to A&E because he couldn't get steak in character or would it have been worse if he'd been exaggerating for the cameras?


Perhaps to avoid confusion he should have chosen a different name for his TG character? I've often thought him akin to Al Murray's pub landlord character; Al says far more outrageous things than Clarkson ever has but seldom comes under attack.


(To avoid confusion and outraging the easily outraged this is no endorsement of punching work colleagues :rolleyes:)

They still had 13 players on the pitch. The forward passes are irrelevant to the point I made.


There's no knowing for certain if HKR would have or haven't been disadvantaged score wise if they had been reduced to 12 men. We do know that not pulling up the two clear forward passes that lead to tries did disadvantage HKR score wise.

Cunningham has just said pretty much the same thing.
