    Do you really believe smoking pot is a more serious crime than assault?

    Really?

    uh what? are you asking me if i think the penalty for drug possession is more serious than simple assault or are you asking me some kind of moral question if i think drug possession is a bigger deal? yes to the first question, no to the second. oh and grats on missing the point of my question. chanur thinks that clarkson got fired because of some legal issue that the BBC was liable in some way if they let a person who hit somebody in a bar fight after work back on television. i asked him if clarkson was found smoking dope would it have been as big a deal because typically drug possession is considered a more serious crime than misdemeanor assault.

    it doesnt matter, he cant answer that question and you are just trolling. besides, clarkson will answer the question himself when he, may and hammond are back on tv before the end of the year and the top gear franchise is dead and most of its crew are filing for unemployment checks.

    In a court of law it is.

    Not quite, you only have to buy a license if you watch TV as it is being broadcast, whether on a TV set, a computer or any other device. I do not own one as the only programs I watch are downloaded - usually US broadcasts of serial drama.

    Good to know they're becoming more lenient because they used to be very unflexible about that. You literally had to prove that you were unable to receive broadcasts.

    In order to get to a court of law you would have to have been stopped in possession many times and even then I'm not sure the magistrate would be too impressed.

    1st time - warning
    2nd time - fine
    3rd time - arrest
    After the arrest there are another further group of options, a court case wouldn't be anywhere near the top of the list.

    You think because you like Jeremy Clarkson that he should be given carte blanche to hit people at work without losing his job and I'm the one trolling?

    Personally I don't mind him or the show. Do I think it's a shame? Of course! Do I think he should be fired for hitting someone from work because they didn't have his dinner ready? Fuck yes.

    I so hope some other channel hires them and lets them go head to head with the "new" top gear that I don't see becoming anything but a failure.

    ...what I’m suggesting for Top Gear is that, as with Doctor Who, the lead character doesn’t ever leave – rather he simply “regenerates”. My proposal is that for the start of the next series they simply take some of the footage that’s already been shot with Jeremy, possibly from that fateful day in Yorkshire, but after a couple of minutes his image suddenly goes all weird and via the use of computer trickery and possibly a swooshing noise I would appear in his place – except I would not be known as Alexei Sayle, I would be called “Jeremy Clarkson”, and forever more whoever plays the role will be known as “Jeremy Clarkson”, even if they are hopefully one day non-white or a woman.
