I suppose it was inevitable, the injury to Richard Hammond, the Presenter of the BBC's -slightly dated- motoring programme Top Gear, has sparked the usual chorus of po-faced disapproval.
In particular I see Johann Hari of The Independent- self appointed leader of Britain's burgeoning gay chav community- has spoken out against the cult of speed and anti-political correctness of the programme.
God- what a bore he is!
The fact is cars are fun.
I shall drop the roof on my MG and drive the country lanes of Britain- taking due care and attention of course- but, on one of the straighter, safer stretches of road I might just open up the throttle and puton a bit of a blast, in honour of the boneheaded idiots who behave totally irresponsibly and with the maximum amount of immaturity.
At least they are lot more entertaining than the tedious self laceration of a Cambridge graduate who would really prefer to be Vicki Pollard.
Come to think of it, you never see Vicki and Johann in the same room, do you?
