    Isle of Sheppey Caravan site, anyone stopped there? The caravan times reckon there were 31000 complaints from Sheppey! after Clarkson said locals on the Isle of Sheppey, off Kent's north coast, "tend to be the sort of people who arrived in England in the back of a refrigerated truck or clinging to the underside of a Eurostar train". He said it was "mostly … a caravan site" where there are "thousands of mobile homes, all of which I suspect belong to former London cabbies". :Laughing:

    If you get upset about anything JC says, then you are completely missing the point.

    Hate Clarkson but

    I hate Clarkson, but for once he is right ... with Clacton on Sea ...or Jaywick not far behind.

    Sheppey one big caravan site and a prison compound .. hate the place, had to go there every week to see clients in the prisons.. felt like one as soon as you went over the bridge... miserable place ... mud flats and caravans :Blush:

    I find him amusing

    We need more people whos output is not predictable and politically correct.

    And do remember he is playing it for effect.

    Trouble is that he is predictable and has been for years. If he (or his scriptwriters) had evolved his act over the years then it might be funny but he didn't and he is well past his sell by date.

    How can you not love someone who gets paid £2.14m by the BBC (your money) to say on national television that local govt strikers should be shot in front of their children for daring to strike to save their pensions (average £4k) ....oh how we laughed!!
    Seriously I used to find him funny but now he just plays to stereotypes and his exagerations get more and more ridiculous and less and less funny! Still never mind...takes all types.:RollEyes:

    Funny how many people that don't like Clarkson know what he is about? It must be some kind of masochistic pleasure that people get watching and listening to some one that they dislike?:Doh:

    Earns the Beeb millions, most exported show worldwide.

    Dead right about local government officers though, but I wouldn't wait until they went on strike!

    One of the complainants, a Mr R Slicker said Clarkson should,nt be able to get away with slagging off the area. Mr Slicker, who has six fingers and is currently on bail for sleeping with his sister, said that he had lkived in the area all his life, and had never driven a cab.
