Sorry was hardest word for Jeremy

So the BBC has turfed out Clarkson. Loads of people will now shout for him to be re-appointed. And other broadcasters will probably find they have deep pockets stuffed with cash to coax him to join them.

Neither his fans nor his potential employers should be so forgiving. Clarkson is a rich man. And on Top Gear he was a powerful man. And from his position of wealth and power he, according to the BBC, punched and verbally abused a colleague. Having done so he showed not the slightest indication of sorry or culpability. There comes a point when support should fall away - for most reasonable people that point comes when you are brashly unable to accept responsibility.
