>>65029540
I don't drive myself, so I can't say, but I got car sick as a kid no matter what.

I find it's the combination of car smells and motion that even to this day gives me a headache in some cars.

'Evans was forced to make a hurried exit from an Audi R8 V10, which was being driven at the Mazda Raceway track in Monterey by co-star Sabine Schmitz, in order to be sick.'

I'd throw up too if that mess was driving.
>>
>>65029741
Imagine the type of person who has the money to throw on the supercars they had on, and who's actually dumb enough to buy a car based on Clarkson's review. How could you not be disgusted if meeting them?
>>
>>65029791
Not that i'm defending Evans by the way, he's a mess as well.
>>
>>65029758
Not when I'm the only person with the headache.

Cars with AC are the worst and some air fresheners just make it worse.

Also the bus smell of dust, sweat and moisture. Even thinking about makes me uncomfortable.

Why in the world are they bothering to reboot Top Gear anyway?
There's absolutely no new audience to gain, the brand is tied to Clarkson, Hammond and May and that won't change in people's minds.
It will get shunned no matter what.
Why change the format when they already have several other motorsport shows already?
This reboot is obviously motivated by a personal vendetta, not a business decision at all.

sabine is literally the only decent host.

They should can the other two and try again. Probably the fuckers that do the magazine, at least they're into cars and technically in the brand already.

>>65040125
They didn't used to show previews for Top Gear until a few weeks before it would air so I can imagine they're doing the same. Or they could be waiting for the beeb to make their move first.
>>
>>65040261
They don't even have a release date for Amazon yet though. At least they say that whatever the BBC thing is will be coming back in May.

There is almost no information about the Amazon thing other than they have 160 million pounds to make it with.

Oh and that it will be available world wide instead of just UK and US. But then you must still have to pay Amazon to watch it, right?

I don't know where you live, but the law doesn't work that way in the UK, especially for minor crimes like disturbing the peace and drunken punch-ups. If the victim doesn't want to press charges, then there is little the police or Crown prosecution can do other than investigate and report it. The police have released statements that they have investigated the incident, twice, but as I said, they can't do anything other than investigate it if the victim does not want to pursue it further, which he doesn't. The Paddy was more interested in suing for money than seeing Clarkson get community service.

The myth that an alleged victim can “drop the charges” probably stems from too many crime television shows where a plot twist occurs when the victim “drops the charges.” In Idaho the truth of the matter is it is not the “victim” that files the charges and it is not the “victim” that “drops the charges”.

A complaining witness can file a complaint with the the proper authorities, such as a police officer. The law enforcement agency then takes the complaint and files it with the prosecuting attorney’s office. The prosecuting attorney’s office then reviews the complaint and makes a determination whether to file charges, and what type of charges to file. It is the prosecuting attorney who then files the charges with the court. The court then makes an initial finding of probable cause, and then either issues a warrant for the defendant to be arrested, or a “summons” that orders the defendant to appear in court.

Since it is the prosecuting attorney who files the charges, the only person who can “drop the charges” is the prosecuting attorney. As you can imagine, if the prosecuting attorney already made a determination to file the charges, they are not frequently persuaded to then subsequently drop the charges, as alleged victims so frequently try to do.

The prosecuting attorney does have the discretion to file a motion to dismiss the case, and the judge will dismiss the case upon such motion, but it is not common for a prosecuting attorney to be persuaded to dismiss their case. Generally prosecuting attorneys will file a motion to dismiss a case when they subsequently become convinced that the evidence is unreliable, or that there is a fundamental failure in the case to prove the elements of the charge, or if there is a plea agreement that results in the defendant pleading guilty to some charges, and the prosecuting attorney dismissing the others.

On the other hand, when a complaining witness no longer wishes to pursue a case, the prosecuting attorney will often take this into consideration when deciding whether to take a case to trial, to plead it out, or straight out dismiss it. This is especially true when it doesn’t appear that the complaining witness is someone who needs to be protected, such as in a property crime case. If the property owner no longer desires that someone be prosecuted for trespass, then the prosecuting attorney may have no desire to continue to prosecute the defendant. On the other hand, if it is a domestic violence case for example, and it is the wife of the defendant that no longer wishes to press charges, then her desire for the defendant to be prosecuted may not be relevant to the prosecution’s will to prosecute. Although it may still be relevant to what time of plea agreement the prosecutor is willing to extend to the defendant.

Most cases, especially domestic violence cases, are not even the result of a complaint being filed by a victim. Quite frequently the alleged victim does not desire that charges be pressed in the first place, but the police file a complaint with the prosecuting attorney anyway. This is a perfectly legitimate means of starting a criminal prosecution. It is not required that a victim file a complaint for criminal charges to be pressed against a defendant

Jeremy Clarkson has been in the news a lot recently for punching his producer and, as a consequence, getting sacked from his role as presenter of Top Gear (a popular television show about cars apparently).

On 27th March 2015 it was announced that there would not be any criminal charges pursued against Mr Clarkson. This is, in the circumstances, probably pretty sensible (not always the hallmark of the CPS it has to be said) – where is the public interest in a prosecution?

But one thing needs to be addressed. The headline in the Guardian read “Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon will not press charges against Jeremy Clarkson”. This is a common misconception – that it is up to the complainant in a case as to whether there will be a prosecution.

Often, of course, it is straightforward. A person feels that they are the victim of a criminal act and report it to the police. The police then investigate and charge the suspect. Although this is common, it is important to remember that the police (and the CPS) are not the lawyers for the victim.

Firstly, the police have to make an investigation before the CPS decides whether someone should be charged. There is a specific test that has to be passed (set out in the Code for Crown Prosecutors) which requires both that there is sufficient evidence to ensure a realistic prospect of conviction and that there is a public interest in prosecuting.

If these aren’t met, then that is the end of it – no prosecution by the CPS (whether the CPS always apply this test, and apply it correctly, is a matter of some dispute). The complainant can start a private prosecution, but of course they will have to pay for it.

This cuts the other way though. Every case brought by the CPS will be called R v Jones. R stands for ‘Regina’, Latin for ‘Queen’. She actually isn’t involved of course, even the most ardent royalist would struggle to defend everything done in her name.
>>
>>65041544
Not really. Clarkson is a petulant man child.
>>
Anyway, this is to indicate that the prosecution is brought on behalf of the public, due to the harm done to the public. Sometimes this will be clear – possession of drugs, as an example, where there may be no actual victim.

But even where the allegation is an assault, although we speak of the ‘victim’ as the person who got punched, the perpetrator is actually being prosecuted and punished for the damage done to society as a whole. Many victims don’t understand this and see the prosecutor at court as ‘their lawyer’, but this isn’t right.

One consequence is that it is not up to the victim whether or not a case proceeds. Although the wishes of the victim will be taken in to account, the CPS will frequently ignore the wishes of the victim that the case is dropped.

Although this seems wrong, it does make sense when you think about it. As an example, there are often pressures put on a victim to ‘drop’ a case and if they had complete control over whether a case proceeded, this would increase.

For this reason, victims who are reluctant to attend court can and are arrested to ensure that they give evidence. Although it does raise issues over the autonomy of victims, it can be seen why this is necessary.

So, the Guardian is not right to say that the case was not proceeded with because Mr Tymon did not wish it to do so. The fact that he did not is something that would have been taken into account, but would not be determinative.

but you only buy a supercar for the feeling you get when it goes VROOOM, which is worth a lot of money to some people. They're not for getting from A to B in the most practical manner.


When it comes to normal cars, they're all reasonably similar in that you get wheels, seats and controls. Some have slightly comfier seats, others have more luggage space, others have better infotainment, but none of those things would be a dealbreaker to me, while I'd be very reluctant to buy a totally joyless car.

What could they do though. Jezza's actions and admission pretty much made the decision for them. There's only so much shit they can defend and overlook. Smacking someone is the final straw and the actions of a man who thinks the rules do not apply to him, probably due to avoiding any consequences for his actions for so long.

>>65041454
If the victim doesn't want to testify the charges are effectively dropped even if technically they should keep going. If the victim doesn't agree to turn up in court there's not much of a case to answer.

Unless it's murder, obvs.

No mater how trivial you personally find them, the society we live in will complain, and as a publicly-funded broadcaster, the BBC has a duty to acknowledge and respond. They've stood by him for years and defended his behaviour. He then went and essentially challenged them to sack him, which they had no choice but to.

The other dude didn't tell. He went to the hospital to get checked out and in the meantime everyone who saw it happen went around gossiping. Clarkson was drunk and so was the other guy and they had a punch up, the guy who got hit didn't cause the sackings the BBC was just looking for an excuse.

Their reviews are shit.

The drive cars I will never get my hands on. Their reviews of average joe price cars are mostly jokes. information about how the ride feels and handles can be questionable, because that has an element of personal taste, but if it's horrible to drive they are generally blunt about it. They at least point out common flaws and fuck ups with some models. There's a fair amount of 'hybrids/electric is a joke and bad', they don't touch 4WD/off road + modification much, they don't really talk about modifications at all really.

In the end it's just 3 idiots having fun with ever escalating shenanigans and cars as a the vehicle to the fun. Sometimes I wish they did away witht eh car reviewing pretext and just gave them loads of cash to do stupid shit for 12 episodes a year + a special where they travel the world. The cameramen doing all that shit was great.
