This car, with many,
many optional extras, was £36,000. Whereas James May’s
BMW i3 was… Well… let’s find out,
shall we? JEREMY OVER RADIO:
How much was your i3? Well, it was £40,000, but I got £5,000 back
from the government, so actually it’s £35,000, which is less than yours,
I think. You were given,
by the government, £5,000 of taxpayers’ money so you could buy that car? I didn’t make the rules.
You can’t turn it down. It’s not like
the Beatles’ OBE. That is obscene! I mean, James May
is a wealthy man, but that bus driver
has bought his car for him. Where’s the justice in that? You’re paying for his car.
Do you know that? You have paid for it. Just so you know,
you’ve paid for his car. Has James May thanked you
for buying his car for him? Jeremy will have
an opinion on this, despite having bought a farm
on which, for many years, he was paid
to not grow anything. Congestion charge here. It’s £11.50
to drive into the centre. – JAMES: Not for me, it isn’t.
– JEREMY: Of course it isn’t. The taxi driver, is he paying
for your congestion charge? I suppose everybody
must pay a little bit. # James May, James May
Stealing from the rich # # James May, James May
Stealing from the poor # # He steals from the rich
He steals from the poor # # And once more,
wants it all # # That’s appalling # It nearly works.
