You can say what you like about Jeremy Clarkson – mostly because he says what he likes about everyone else. But when the outspoken former serious journalist turned TV caricature makes a mistake, at least he puts hands up to it.
In a nutshell, Clarkson claimed the loss of the HM Revenue and Customs data discs (with over 25 million individuals’ bank details on them) was a storm in a C-drive. No one, he claimed, could do anything with the data – and to prove it he published his own details in his column. He claimed the only thing anyone could do with the information was to pay money into his account. Cue a witty reader who set up a direct debit from said account, siphoning off 500 nicker to a chosen charity.
Clarkson – funnily enough – put his hands up to being had.
Ha, ha, ha, ha!
Moral of the story: when it comes to technology and the Interweb, Clarkson’s talking out of his S-drive.
