    Now there is a boost for decency and good taste

    What amazes me are the number of people who are doing the whole "reinstate Clarkson" thing - I'm sorry, but he was at work, an allegation has been made that he punched someone and he has been suspended. Its pretty much standard when it comes to that kinda thing! What I don't fully understand is why Top Gear has been cancelled - why couldn't they let Hammond and May carry on without him and poke some irreverent fun at the situation?

    Because May and Hammond wouldn't have agreed to that. It will be in their contracts somewhere that they only present the show when all three are available, to cover situations like this, so they aren't forced to present it (i.e. to prevent breach of contract) when they want to be showing support for their colleague.

    How the **** does it take so loooong to hold an investigation? Get the two involved in the office next day, ask the relevant question" did you hit him and why?" Sort punishment if required and get on with life, job done.
    Probably negotiations for payments for doing the job are holding it all up, twats.

    You need to have worked in/with the holy trinity of B's (BT, BBC, British Gas, British Airways, BAA) when they were nationalised to understand that they are more interest in politicking than getting on with the job at everyone else expense. The only long term loser here is going to be the BBC because they didn't think.

    Yes it is.
    Well, we could argue about the football championship in Canada... I was watching Thailand vs. Germany, and I think there were some men in the team from Thailand

    Yeah, we could, but seeing as I don't follow football in any way, shape or form (even any England matches in any World Cup / Euros / so on, so it would be pretty one sided TBH

    I raced in my bus against a colleague going from the depot to the start of the route at work the other week if that counts.

    Wait no, I didn't do that at all, that would have been highly unprofessional.
    Sick of censorship.
