Unbelievable kick up about three public schoolboy, racists leaving a TV show.
The show is about cars and as long as they have slots like the one with LeBlanc and the Nomad it will do okay.
Who would you rather have? Clarkson or Evans? Would you rather your bollocks were kicked or punched?
Bad example. Some people may be into getting their bollocks punched.
I watched a show on Channel 4 one night where a fella got a kick out of attaching a car battery to his testicles.

So what you are saying is, liking Clarkson is a perversion. I would agree.

I liked the old version.  It was an entertainment show about 3 mates who liked cars and didn't give fxxk about the establishment.  Yes they took it too far on occasion but it was good viewing.  A league of their own is in a similar vein, mates who mess about with a vague link to sport.

Jobs you would enjoy getting up in the morning to go to! !

Ever since that gimp was at Billie piper (my celeb crush at the time) I couldn't stand him. I watched ten mins before turning it off. The man is awful to listen to and even worse to look at. Le Blanc just stood around like a spare part

Time will heal General. Time will heal.

Clarkson is the type of person whose obituary you'd look forward too....

Eddie Jordan gives the show a much needed other dimension. Good character.

Agree. Much better, helped by the video in S. Africa and the Maclaren.

Was doomed from the start!

Evans wasn't the right choice as he's quite divisive in that you either like him or loathe him and I think they needed a safer option after Clarkson. It will be interesting to see who they get for the next series!

That is the set complete now that Ginger had joined Posh Cameron, Sporty Hodgson, Scary Garage and Baby Johnson.

Heard it all now, he is beyond useless as a TV presenter, he cant even think what he is going to say before it is out. So stilted and disjointed.

I'm surprised Evans went so quickly. If he had stuck it out, he might have found his feet and the audience start to warm to him.
I presume there are other background reasons?
