Jeremy Clarkson is to be sacked as Top Gear presenter after a BBC investigation concluded he did attack a producer on the programme…
It is understood a report into the so-called ‘fracas’ at a North Yorkshire hotel, concluded that presenter spent 20 minutes verbally abusing producer Oisin Tymon, before launching a 30 second physical assault on him. [Daily Telegraph]
20 minutes. Not one momentary loss of temper.
30 seconds. Not one brief, thoughtless movement with the arm.
I’m tempted to challenge any reader who claims this isn’t serious to let me try the 20 minutes / 30 seconds combo on them as a test… except I doubt I could keep up verbal abuse for 20 minutes without some serious training first.
