So another political big cat falls on his sword following Brexit with the resignation of this bloody loon Nigel Farage. He’s done this before of course, usually after a bender, so he may be back. But you sense it’s the end this time. Hoorah! So what was the sense in the referendum vote do you think as the key leaders of the electioneering campaign have all fallen or, in the case of Labour’s Corbyn, are about to. What a gamble that was and it has failed drastically. As each day passes it just makes less and less sense. Why the Government went for an absolute in or out decision mystifies me; it’s like gambling your house, savings, grandchildren’s legacy on the outcome of a turn of a card. Completely bonkers. Why didn’t they just call for a vote for example on a renegotiation of the terms? I’m still in shock to be honest.
But what wasn’t shocking was the news of yet another resignation today; yes the departure of Chris Evans from the re-vamped Top Gear after just one series. I saw one episode and it was bad. As regular readers will know I never liked that twat Clarkson and his little arse licking Hamster playmate but he had a presenting presence. Evans was just awful; shouty, unfunny, controlling, mate-less. Apparently it was chaos behind at the scenes at new TG. Did nobody at the BBC see the drama ahead? With Evans’ past record? Really?
Look if they need someone with strong opinions and genuine (get her) northern charm (though an absence of hair to let the wind tease through) to test-drive some super cars for a couple of £m per year, well I might have some windows in my diary. It’ll never happen of course because they are more likely to select a suddenly available Michael Gove, Boris Johnson or Nigel Farage. But they’ll have to re-title it Top Gear Knobs
