Charity advocates censorship

by Charles Pooter

The "national environmental transport campaign" Transport 2000 (Registered charity No. 1101929) have called for the BBC's Top Gear programme, hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, to be censored. "This is not about censorship" said Steve Hounsham, a spokesman for the registered charity, after calling for Top Gear to be censored by being "taken off the screen". Transport 2000 wants the show to be replaced by a programme promoting "sensible driving in sensible vehicles". Anyone got any suggestions for titles for this exciting new show? All I can come up with is Bottom Gear, No Gears or The Sustainable Transport Hour (with new presenter George Monbiot).
