New footage confirms that a controversial Top Gear stunt did pass within a few feet of The Cenotaph, despite the BBC claiming it didn't.
This story has been done to death elsewhere, so we don't intend going over old ground.
With all the bollocks the BBC has dropped over the years - and there has been a lot of them - you'd think the Corporation would work harder to anticipate problems instead of incompetently lurching from one to the next.
We can't imagine many people would consider it acceptable to burn rubber beside The Cenotaph, so the fact that some faceless BBC bureaucrat sanctioned such a stunt totally beggars belief. That's at least £100k of TV licence fee payer's cash squandered on footage that will never be used.
We do not believe for one moment the BBC's denials of wrongdoing. Had there not been such an immediate public outcry, you can be fairly confident that The Cenotaph, complete with doughnuts and wheel-spinning, would have featured in the final Top Gear programme.
The BBC's lack of reflection, judgement and forethought never fails to disappoint. Whereas most organisations try to learn from mistakes, the BBC tries to surpass them.
