The Prescott interview was funny. I don't really know who he is, but imo he owned Clarkson very nicely.
I'm not British so I don't know his official title, but I believe he was the Transport Minister when Tony Blair was still PM. Over the years, the Top Gear trio has been mocking Lord Prescott's transport policy on the show so I thought it was rather fun for him to personally come onto the show to try and defend himself.

I think I said that. Two Yorkshire alpha males...

Though, to be fair, Jeremy has the advantage in that his idiot is essentially an onscreen character played by a bloke with the same name, whereas Prescott doesn't have that layer of protection in the first half of the segment (he seems to develop it and settle on a character from the "connect with the electorate" line onwards)

*spits* Can't stand the man. Too long indeed, he was the MP here longer than I've been alive.

Well this would explain it...

The son of a railway signalman and Labour councillor, and grandson of a miner, Prescott was born in Prestatyn (now in Denbighshire), Wales. In 2009, he said: "I’ve always felt very proud of Wales and being Welsh...I was born in Wales, went to school in Wales and my mother was Welsh. I’m Welsh. It’s my place of birth, my country."[2] He left Wales in 1942 at the age of four and was brought up initially in Brinsworth in South Yorkshire, England.

Re: Top Gear New Series

I think I'm gonna give it a miss, unless I'm told it's exceptionally good. I'm getting to the point where I can't stand Clarkson now, though.

I know what your saying, I will probably end up watching it on I player when I have nothing to do.

Special was good - India very interesting and amazing, but the bit with the slogans on the train was very predictable - as soon as they'd put them up, I knew what they'd end up saying when they were ripped....

Clarkson's statements about executing striker workers indicates his stupidity might go deeper than his on screen persona.

Re: Top Gear New Series

^ that's old news and horrifically out of context. (He actually first said he liked it cos there was less traffic but then added that "because this is the BBC I have to be "balanced" so have them shot...") so the joke was actually about the BBC's policy to having to give both sides....

Anyway, I also have to confess I now want to visit a hotel just to try out the trouser press as a toastie-maker.

Only caught the last third of the special. Still amusing though. I'll catch the rest on BBC3 or iPlayer.

Wasn't that a Red Dwarf idea 12 years ago? Lister wanted a transfer to a different wing because they had trouser presses, so he could make toasties.
