Which do you think?:
Yes, the word is too offensive to tolerate regardless of context or intent and so Clarkson deserves the pillorying

No, it was clearly accidental an was never broadcast, so the ones who should be censured are those who stole and published the edited material to further another agenda

The thing is that this is the part of the process that you keep making up - it doesn't exist and the council have no remit to do it. The council's remit is to assess the impact of any road closures, confirm that the appropriate crowd control measures are planned to be implemented by competent people and confirm that the appropriate risk assessments have been undertaken and documented. Other than minor tasks about notifications for use of simulated firearms, pyrotechnics and police/military uniforms & people that's it.

The council do not, and have no remit to do, a scene-by-scene review of the story boards for the shoots. And looking at the scale of charges for road-closure licenses they don't have the funding for the required resources to do it even if they wanted to.

Unless the proposed activity breaks some other law (there is no law making it illegal to do something disrespectful within eyeshot of a monument) they *cannot* withold a license on the basis of "not liking" what they intended to film. Heck, if the item being filmed didn't require a road closure and the film crew comprised fewer than five people they wouldn't even need a license...

In which case it is a very clever ruse and I've been found out. You've got me on that one.
I would have thought that hacking the relevant website and uploading the policy document I knocked up would have caught you out.

You're just too damn smart aren't ya

I do think this band is so much better than the one on the Titanic (pass the popcorn)

So now the dust has settled and they've finished the first series of New^2 Top Gear, and it looks like things are less than rosy for the GingerOne. If falling ratings weren't enough (see Here amongst others) this won't be making his case any easier...

Actually it now seems that the GingerOne has resigned from TG.

I wonder if Maclaren have made a decision about Jenson yet...

Hmm,I thought he was one of the least bad things about it. Watched the "finale" this morning and thought overall it was not bad. They need to get rid of the mini/rally track and the dual star thing, takes too much time and it's boring. Oh and Jordan definitely needs to go.

Too shouty, to patently "hamming it up" IMHO.

A bit harsh, but not difficult - running a hose pipe from the Med will cover most of it...

Wow, that was a snappy response!

As I hadn't noticed this thread before, I would like to give my view that the word "Clarkson" is too offensive to tolerate regardless of context or intent. (That was the question, wasn't it?)
