Jeremy Clarkson in the news again for racist remarks. Top Gear regrets the remarks of course, but not so much as to impair their ratings magnet. I may have missed some, but this may have been a three break in Top Gear regrets, which is actually pretty good for them. Well done lads!

“If you do lose your job and you end up living in a barn, with just a fire to keep you warm and nothing to eat but what you can find in a hedge, be happy. Because you’ll be having a much better life than me.”
