    Bwahaha. Well, at least the guy who proved him wrong donated his money to charity. Still pretty funny though.

    The loss of private data is never a good thing, especially when it's financial data.

    That person is a thief, even if the money went to charity.

    Classic Clarkson. Stupid, but he's learnt something and so have a few others (including myself)

    It could have been worse for Clarkson – the money could have been sent to Greenpeace or some other environmental organisation rather than Diabetes UK.

    Now, that would have really upset him. :p

    Alas, if only that was all he is… here in the UK he is a "celebrity" and his word is gospel for loads of people. A real tw@t.

    He's a top chap, he wouldn't have pubished his details without being informed that it was perfectly safe beforehand, so whoever instructed him was infact wrong and therefore the idiot.
    Jezza for PM!

    Our details were among those that went missing on HMRC's missing disks, and this chap told us we'd be fine and not to worry.

    Maybe he assured Mr Clarkson he'd be similarly safe?

    Actually, what he did wasn't stupid at all - he'll get the money back via the Direct Debit Guarantee. We do exactly the same thing he did every time we send someone a cheque.

    The simple solution to stop such an issue happening again is for the banks to issue a letter to the account holder every time a direct debit is set up.

    Being a guy who doesn't have anything against Clarkson and finds him rather amusing... but also a guy affected by the UK government's idiocy, I find this amusing yet slightly worrying.

    Good one, Clarkson xD

    Mr. Clarkson is a fine fellow and a splendid television presenter and I will not hear a word against him. The way he satirises the attitudes of smug, self satisfied right wing Daily Mail readers is a joy to behold. He should be given an award for his acting skills.

    It really sums up just how ignorant that man is. Almost all of his viewpoints that he chooses to make public are just ridiculous.

    I loathe the man and don't find him even slightly entertaining/amusing/intelligent. All the more reason why he should refrain from expressing his opinion in public!

    Jeremy Clarkson may be a bit of an idiot sometimes, but that is why we love him! The same applies to Top Gear. Everyone needs to watch what may be the stupidest, but also funniest (IMO) bit of Top Gear ever:

    He does do an extraordinarily good job of acting like a smug, self satisfied twat, you are quite correct. ;)

    It would not be a fair contest. He would be the only nominee.
