    Let them laugh: it's a lunatic in disguise: The Clarkson Review: Renault Mégane RS Trophy (Sunday Times, May 26) Quite often, when I sit down at a party, the person next to me will turn and say sternly: "You're not going to talk about cars, are you?" It's odd. When they find they've been seated...

    A safe space to melt a snowflake's heart: The Volvo XC40 (May 19) A couple of weekends ago I took part in a tennis tournament.

    We love reaching the places other car shows can't. But thanks to Isis, we're stuck with Slough (May 12) There seems to be a general consensus that Isis has been pretty much wiped out in Syria and Iraq, and that in former strongholds such as Raqqa and Mosul, people are now hanging up curtains...

    [03x14] April 11, 2019 - Funeral for a Ford

    I'd never have guessed the end would involve the boys taking on the British class system and Jeremy weeping, but it was a great way to bow out. It's a bit of shame Amazon has mandated a format change after TGT had finally nailed its format. This season was certainly the show's best so far, and...

    Cheat, love, bray: let me put my ass on the line and tell you that the donkey sex scene was real (Feb. 03) There's no easy way of saying this, so I'll just jump straight in. While driving through Colombia last year, I encountered a man who was making love to a donkey. Further investigations...

    Spa guide: Jeremy Clarkson has water therapy at the Gainsborough Bath Spa By Jeremy Clarkson (January 27) All health resorts need a unique selling point, something that makes them more than just a few corridors full of wet idiots in towelling slippers. Last year I went to a place in Surrey...

    Anointed with Piz Buin and ordained by magical thinking. God save our royal family! (Sunday Times, Jan. 27) If we'd never had any sort of government and suddenly decided we needed one, it's highly unlikely we'd come up with a system where the position of head of state was hereditary. Imagine...
