No Place like Adlington
Review of Rebecca Adlington by 1st2thebar

Advantages: A British Treasure
Disadvantages: Retired far too early

Ex-Olympic Swimmer for Team GB Born in 1989 Married: September 2014 to Harry Needs – expecting their first child in June - - - I find myself applauding those who choose a profession whereby retirement is at a blink of an eye and then infinite; swimming ... Read review

Punch & Jeremy Show
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by 1st2thebar

Advantages: 1 million petitions are a testament to the genius
Disadvantages: Compensation culture is rearing its ugly lip

In 2005, an Oxford honorary degree was awarded to Clarkson; a Doctor of Engineering . His awkward shuffling from foot to foot implied he wasn’t a man comfortable with formal ceremonies or was from the establishment. His inward embarrassment was heighten ... Read review

Interesting points made here by AnneLorraine1
The Prescott punch had occurred to me when I was considering it, particularly considering he hit a pundit rather than an employee. Well well written and argued piece here, although I'd struggle to agree that not providing a steak is in breach of not respecting colleagues! On the other hand I do agree that Clarkson is Clarkson and a drunken fracas doesn't deserve anywhere near the hype that it's got. by Secre

A storm in a teacup instigated by a short-sighted hotel
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by rolandrat123

Advantages: Shows Clarkson still has lots of fans
Disadvantages: Started as a storm in a teacup

Who is to blame – Clarkson or the BBC? Well I am sure everyone in the country has heard about this saga as it has even been commented on by the Prime Minister. For those who have been in hibernation there was an altercation at a hotel between Clar ... Read review

It's All About the Motivation
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by hiker

Advantages: No such thing as bad publicity
Disadvantages: Or is there?

Simple answer: No, I don't support the suspension. Before I'm swamped by righteously indignant objectors to people getting thumped by the boss, let me explain. On 'Top Gear' and 'Clarkson' I don't drive and haven't the remotest interest in ... Read review

Anyone else would get sacked.
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Are there any?
Disadvantages: Are there any?

Celebrity sex offenders in court; celebrity 'phone hackers in court; non-celebrity persons in court over similar such situations - so why should this be any different? Just because Jeremy Clarkson is a so called celebrity, this does not give him the right ... Read review

Keep Clarkson!
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by magicpandapop

Advantages: No more of James May's ridiculous shirts
Disadvantages: No more punny reviews of cars, and no more borderline offensive banter

As an avid watched of Top Gear, I was saddened to hear that Jeremy Clarkson had been suspended. Despite his rather abrasive personality, I find him highly amusing, and one of the main reasons I watch Top Gear. I imagine, though I don't know for certain, t ... Read review

I agree that losing Top Gear would be a shame as I, like you watched it because of their challenges and not because I like cars. However, at the end of the day, Clarkson has assaulted someone at work. If any of us 'mortals' had done that we would have been fired for gross misconduct immediately, so why should it be different for him? by Silveryew
This is an OK start but you might want to see what others have written on this subject to see how it could be better. by sharper_fin

RICHADA WADES INTO A POPULARIST CONTROVERSY
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by RICHADA

Advantages: I may no longer need the OFF switch on my TV.
Disadvantages: Everybody loses.

...MYSELF THAT I WOULD NOT DO THIS! RICHADA does not do 1000 word reviews, POTW, Current Debate, or indeed any other form of competition – the temptation was to let the competition date expire, and then publish a typical 2500 word RICHADA ran ... Read review

Well written and I agree with you. At the end of the day, he has assaulted a colleague. If I had done that I would have been fired immediately and I would probably also have been charged. So it's what they've got to do, in the name of decency, really... by Silveryew

Top Gear is one of the most interesting shown on TV
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by helen188

Advantages: Jeremy Clarkson is cool broadcaster
Disadvantages: tongue in cheek

Personally I like him, I sure he is better specialist than Richard Hammond or James May. he always says funny things about cars, as for me I like TV shows about cars which I cannot afford.he is cool driver, he could use expensive cars or cheap ones. But s ... Read review

Violence in work cannot be condoned.
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by pumfster

Advantages: Many people like him?
Disadvantages: Violence in work cannot be tolerated under any circumstances (Unless you are a boxer!!!)

So Jeremy Clarkson’s in trouble again is he? Suspended I hear? Almost a million people have signed a petition to get him and Top Gear back onto the television! Frankly none of these statements particularly surprise me – Jeremy Clarkson is and always will ... Read review

to sack or not to sack
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by bettyboo47

Advantages: a crime must be punished appropriately
Disadvantages: He would be a big loss to the show

Family at War The news that Jeremy Clarkson had been suspended sparked a clash of opinions in our household. My Hubby is a huge fan of Top gear (as is our eldest son) and when I heard the news, I thought that he would be outraged by the decision ... Read review

Is this one fracas too much?
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by CoffeeQueen68

Advantages: Lose Clarkson.
Disadvantages: Could lose a very profitable and popular programme.

I'll be honest, I don't like Jeremy Clarkson, I never have. He's said things in the past that's got him into trouble. I think the trouble is, he says things first without thinking what he's saying, only for it to be blown out of context later. Only thi ... Read review

Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by Jarisleif

Advantages: Jeremy Clarkson
Disadvantages: Possible the end of Top Gear

This is a subject I have a divided opinion on, and I hope to get my points across over the duration of this article, so as usual, please bear with me. Some say… that Jeremy Clarkson is a foul-mouthed oaf, and that he once punched a "Top Gear" producer. A ... Read review

Good points - I'll bet the BBC are tying themselves in knots as to how to get out of this and save face by rolandrat123
as offensive as the remark might appear on the surface, I can quite understand those who compared Jeremy to Jimmy Saville - in as much as they were both 'larger-than-life' celebrity figures to whom people feared to give offence or even call to account for their actions - - - but no one is that important, or that big a star . . . . . . .

Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by thedevilinme

Advantages: Was a good show
Disadvantages: So much for free speech

There’s an unfortunate paradox in the modern media. The more controversial and risky you are the more popular you become but the more likely to be sacked by nervous and righteous TV bosses. But if you don’t push to be popular you also get fired or moved s ... Read review

Review of UK Election 2015 by torr

Advantages: UK politics is an enthralling spectator sport
Disadvantages: Unlike with most sports, the result matters

"Who will win?" is the question posed by Ciao. A tough one. Predicting the outcome of British general elections is a notoriously hazardous business. It is not enough to study opinion polls and try to gauge the public mood. Thanks to our absurd, undem ... Read review
