    200 complaints because of a joke about truckers murdering prostitutes. Ofcom is getting involved yet again.

    If we keep going at this rate there will be no presenters left on the beeb soon

    No, they're protecting us from the shite ones.

    Dawkins bless censorship.

    Censorship sucks. It creates forbidden fruits. It's evil.

    I want to be able to decide what I find offensive, and choose to watch or not to watch the people involved again. I don't want some dimwitted bureaucratic organisation to make that choice for me.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say Clarkson is a fruit. He's just shite.

    Racist.

    200 complaints, he's probably a bit disappointed with that. Particularly for a first episode.

    I like Clarkson, his books (collection of newspaper articles normally) amuse me.

    From the chairman of URTU:

    "This is an unacceptable ... slur on the character of lorry drivers and the character of the industry, and it is grossly unfair. It's up to the BBC what action they take against Clarkson but we are certainly demanding an apology over these disgraceful comments."

    I'm with Skweeky. I don't watch anything with Clarkson in because he's a knob, thus am blissfully unaware of any offensive attention seeking comments he might make. Having said that, Viz did a character called 'Laurie Driver' who was always bundling up hitchhikers into carpets and bumping them off.
