    Not bad, but doesn't the UK have taxes that are just outrageous? Not that 5Mil is something to shrug off, but if you have to give a crapload back it kinda takes the fun out of it. I mean someone has to pay for universal healthcare.

    Plus they have all those darn road taxes.

    Yeah, you bring up a good point. Jezza does quite a bit of off-screen work, mostly writing pieces that appear regularly in a variety of print and online periodicals. Most would agree that his print work is at least equal to his broadcast work in terms of hilarity and well-placed cynicism. Also, I think he's probably the most involved of anyone in supporting Andy Wilman in injecting creativity into the production of TG. Quite a bit more than just acting bombastic in front of a camera 15 times a year.

    Good for him. I don't agree with everything he says but I am always entertained.

    He's a bit of a cock and often outspoken but I do find myself agreeing with a lot of what he's says
