M5 crash

Roughly 26 vehicles involved in a multiple RTC. LGVs have gone up in flames. Over 30 injured with possible fatalities. Watching it on BBC News, it looks horrendous! Thoughts go out to all those involved and dealing with it. Take care out there guys.

Here's the latest from BBC news:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-15606278

Horrific is all that comes to my mind when I see these pictures and my heart goes out to the families of those bereaved...may their family members rest in piece.

To those that attended that scene, it must have been something horrific and possibly a scene from Dantes Inferno. I hope time clears those images from your minds and you manage to sleep.
Whatever happens...remember you all did your very, very best as we always do.

God speed to every last one of you...I'm proud to have worked alongside you all.
The real leader has no need to lead--
he is content to point the way.

Read Clarkson in The Sun today, he says accident on M5 like all accidents does not need investigating, bet if his wife - or mistress - were killed in a crash and he was told driver was drunk but can't be prosecuted as no investigation was carried out he would go ballistic and sue the police!

Also he says rescue workers deserve no praise as they are doing their job yet he is a big supporter of Help For Heroes, surley soldiers are doing their jobs when they get injured so deserve no praise either. Is Clarkson therefore a fake? A hypocrite? Or both?

You summed it up in the first 6 words of your post.....Read Clarkson in the Sun today.......the Sun, Clarkson = toilet paper.
He is trying to sell newspapers.......those that read the Sun only look at page 3.....you will hardly find informative content there unless its got big tits :slhuh:

Anyone got a link to Clarksons article?

If this is indeed what he said, I'm very disappointed if I'm honest. Personally, I agree with what he normally says because it's usually exactly what we are thinking.

However, if his comments regarding the M5 are as mentioned above, he's gone a step too far this time and should apologise immediately.

He instantly went right up in my estimations with his famous HATO rant/comments... :slgo: :sleye:
