I see Clarkson as a voice of reason, albeit sometimes bended with madness, in a sea of governmental stupidity.

Ok back on topic. Watching an episode of HIGNFY with Brooker on it. He's pretty funny. Unfortunately the episode is ruined for me by the presence of quite possible the most unbearable dick in showbusiness, Russel Brand.

And hey, Brooker has to be good if Ian Hislop comments on him being "one of the most intelligent people I've ever sat next to"

Russell Brand is a despicable prick.

That is all.

Clarkson? The voice of reason? He only writes about things that he's too stupid to understand and then postulates it as symptomatic of a broken society. He's a self-righteous idiot.

Actually if you read a lot more of his stuff, especially his older stuff that doesn't appear in The Sun (because NOTHING intelligent is going to appear in that fucked up wankstain of a newspaper) there's actually a lot of intelligence behind some of the things he writes.

He is not a stupid man by any stretch of the imagination. And quite frankly, British society IS broken.

I watched a clip of that Russell Brand guy.

I don't think I heard anything funny in his stand up. Am I missing something?

No, he's not funny. He's just an underdressed yet overdressed twat who tries to come off as intelligent by using varied vocabulary, but cannot pull it off because he is as thick as two short planks.

He looks like a cartoon terrorist whose bomb's gone off in his face.

Unbelievable that this is the first time I see Charlie Brooker. Before you rape me with a spear, I'm BRAZILIAN and we only have one BBC here and it's BBC News. What did I think of him? Brilliant delivery, excellent points and I can see how he influenced Yahtzee alright. He also manages to be funny while showing his face, which is incredibly risky and takes guts.
