oh man! so ANAL dude.. so what if they smoked?
i didnt know england didnt have any freedom like that. George Bush should add england on the list of countries to free (aka invade) to spread democracy there and allow people to smoke if they wanted to.

edit: im being sarcastic, in case you missed that part

To be fair it was illegal and a bit of an error on the part of the producers.

I don't think anyone is going to take it further though and I think anyone calling for an apology just makes themselves look stupid.

Hmm...

Wonder if they'd be in trouble if they 'smoked' the tyres too?

Quote:
"There were no complaints from members of the audience present during the filming."

She wouldn't comment on whether or not what took place was illegal.

But Amanda Sandford, spokeswoman for Action on Smoking on Health (Ash), said: "Smoking in a studio is illegal. Anything that causes smoke is prohibited.
Certainly promise to do that in that MPH stageshow thing Clarkson and co do!

Absolute zeroes. Seriously, do they have anything else to do at all?
