Even got a Daily Mail editor to write the article for them. Is it a really good spoof or does this guy believe what he's writing?

    Okay, technically it's The Observer - believe it makes a difference with where complaints should be addressed - but published on the Guardian's website. Utter shoite and I can't believe they even considered it fit for publication given the damage it'll do for the paper's reputation.

    Good to hear what the majority in the UK think for a change, they are so often under represented, especially here. :D

    The whole article is pure troll-speak.
    This post contains traces of nuts.

    Clarkson-esque but with the humour stripped out - just leaving the shite

    That assumes there is any humour in what Clarkson writes in the first place.

    Bizarre > especially given the general just of their weekly bike blog.

    When it comes to the guardian, you're definitely better off sticking to the online content. It's much better than the physical paper.
