  1. Jeremy Clarkson, one of the hosts in The Grand Tour, has revealed that the team wanted to do a road trip in Middle East be backed out over safety concerns. The outspoken host wrote this in his Sunday Times column that the team was considering a trip from Saudi Arabia across to Cairo, Egypt but decided against it. “This would be an epic journey, except it would mean crossing the Sinai peninsula and, thanks to Isis, the chances of us all arriving on the other side with heads were slim,” he revealed. As seen on British publication Express, The Grand Tour looked into Thailand’s Andaman Islands but decided against filming there due to the presence of a violent tribe on one of the islands. It also added on that a trip to Australia would not be possible because it wouldn’t be interesting enough to fans and media scrutiny in the country could make organizing such a trip difficult. There is no official news on when the The Grand Tour’s fourth season will premiere and the new season will focused exclusively on specials where the trio will be doing road trips in different parts of the world.
  2. I, however, agree with him. Farking suicide wannabes, dun disturb the public transport can anot. Backlash against Jeremy Clarkson after he calls railway track suicides 'selfish' Top Gear presenter's comments about commuter disruption provoke condemnation from mental health charities Jasmine Coleman and agencies guardian.co.uk, Saturday 3 December 2011 10.25 GMT Jeremy Clarkson apologised after saying strikers should be 'executed in front of their families' on BBC1's The One Show. Photograph: Murdo Macleod for the Guardian Jeremy Clarkson faced further censure on Saturday after describing people who killed themselves by jumping under trains as "selfish". His comments in his column in the Sun newspaper provoked outrage from mental health charities. The Top Gear presenter is already mired in controversy for suggesting onBBC1's The One Show that public sector strikers should be "shot in front of their families". He was forced to apologise for that statement, which generated more than 21,000 complaints. Clarkson also made comments about train suicides in the same show and in his Sun column on Saturday, he said those who chose to kill themselves at railway stations caused "immense" disruption for commuters. "I have the deepest sympathy for anyone whose life is so mangled and messed up that they believe death's icy embrace will be better," he wrote. "However, it is a very selfish way to go because the disruption it causes is immense. And think what it's like for the poor train driver who sees you lying on the line and can do absolutely nothing to avoid a collision." Referring to those who jumped in front of trains as "Johnny Suicide", Clarkson said trains should resume their journey as soon as possible following a suicide and leave the body parts for scavenging animals. Catherine Johnstone, chief executive of the Samaritans, said the insensitivity of Clarkson's comments "truly beggars belief". She said: "While purporting to express sympathy for people who die this way, his remarks about their bodies constitute gross intrusion into the grief and shock of bereaved families and friends. "His notion that suicide is a selfish act shows how little he knows about the subject because, if he did, he would know that when a person attempts suicide they are so distressed that they genuinely believe their families will be better off without them. "The concept that their actions could be construed as selfish is the furthest thing from their mind." Johnstone added that insensitive media coverage of suicide could trigger so-called "copycat" deaths. "We have already made a complaint to Ofcom about his remarks on The One Show and we will now be taking up today's comments with the Press Complaints Commission." Paul Farmer, chief executive of Mind, described the comments as "extraordinarily tasteless". He said: "I think there will be many people who have lost loved ones to suicide and people who have contemplated suicide that will think it is in extremely bad taste. "It stands out like a sore thumb from what is increasingly a more supportive approach to suicide by the media. "People will feel like he is trivialising the subject and dismissing people who have taken their own lives. This is a man who really doesn't understand what he is talking about." The One Show presenter Matt Baker apologised on air for the suicide comments, admitting it was not a suitable conversation for a 7pm show. Clarkson's comments on public sector strikers on Wednesday's programme have left the BBC facing the biggest complaints storm since the "Sachsgate" row in 2008. Asked about the strikers, he said: "I'd have them all shot. I would take them outside and execute them in front of their families. I mean, how dare they go on strike when they've got these gilt-edged pensions that are going to be guaranteed while the rest of us have to work for a living?" Unison called for the presenter to be sacked and he later apologised. But BBC sources have said there would be no "massive inquest" into Clarkson's remarks about strikers.

  4. Topgear Jeremy Clarkson said Audi is worse than a China make car and is a piece of junk.
  5. Most of us weren't too thrilled when we first saw the BMW X1 last year in Frankfurt. The reasons were many and varied, but they can basically be lumped into one of two camps. First up is the aesthetics camp. Cries of "ugly" cropped up in the comments faster than they would have in a Susan Boyle Playmate layout. While BMW's particular brand of crossover design has never been anything but controversial, we think the X1 looks pretty much okay. But the second, and maybe more vocal camp, can best be summed up as, "Why?" As in why would BMW bother? According to Top Gear ace Jeremy Clarkson, they shouldn't have. No stranger to stinging reviews, even of BMW products (here's Jezza calling the 335 a "dog turd"), Jeremy really seems to particularly dislike the new X1. He hates the ride, the interior, the name (sDrive in particular), the diesel motor and the way it drives. Is there anything he likes about the small crossover? In a word, no.
  6. Regardless of whether you're a petrolhead or not, you should know this figure pictured above. He is Jeremy Clarkson, the famous (or some say infamous) presenter in BBC's popular motoring entertainment show, Top Gear.
