“one eyed scottish idiot”


Just done a search for the above and got 2,170 search results.  I'm also watching Sky News who are repeating the Jeremy Clarkson clip every few minutes. It just goes to show that whatever offence or damage is caused, the repetition of the event can be justified as a news story. The programmes of course will attempt to put alternative views, but it just goes to show how some outlets (and maybe this one) will see it as a marketing opportunity. 

I did like what the guy from the RNIB had to say about say about sight impairment not being an obstacle to success, but by and large it won't do them any harm.
