Alexandra Palace — the home of the first BBC TV studios. My U.K. ‘guardians’ lived directly beneath it, in Muswell Hill, 1969 – 1970, while I was attending Hill Hill. Know it well.

Wow. The Grand Ol’ Lady of Broadcasting — THE British Broadcasting Company (BBC). What a wonderful institution.

And we still watch the BBC — even if it is their superb, incomparable programs on PBS, ‘The Great British Bake Off‘ Seasons 1 -7 but an example.

We get Acorn TV (on our Roku). As such we have access to more BBC programming than most, e.g., the ‘Detectorists‘.

81-years ago. 17-years before I was born. I first got to see BBC TV in August 1967. It was 31-years old by then!

We Would Be Beyond Delighted If The BBC Picked Comely Sue Perkins As Replacement For Boorish Clarkson.

 I would go even further.

Use the entire cast from
“The Great British Bake Off”.

They would be great.

Paul Hollywood (and what a GREAT name)
can provide ALL the male interest needed
while Mary Berry will add even MORE class to the show.

Plus, PLEASE note that on March 26, 2015, I mentioned how great
The Great British Bake Off” was for the BBC
while talking about the firing of bloody Clarkson.

I only know Sue Perkins from the 2014 “Bake Off“. I like her. Reminds me of, just in terms of looks, Rachel Maddow — and I am a huge fan of hers too. Sue Perkins to me is the antithesis of the bloody Clarkson. She is pleasant, self-deprecating, personable and witty. Clarkson was but an ignorant yob. Sue, with her glasses and teeth, reminds me of the British girl next door. Clarkson reminds me of the goons you see in MSNBC’s ‘Lockup‘ series. Sue will bring much needed CLASS to the show.

They really should have the ENTIRE cast of “Bake Off”. It would create a CROSSOVER sensation. They will be great and the BBC will have TWO winners. Synergy at its best.

Sue (kind of like Rachel) is no slouch. Cambridge educated. Does doltish Clarkson even have an ‘A’-level?
