MB: Matt Baker
AJ: Alex Jones
JC: Jeremy Clarkson
MB: Now, at the end of a day where Britain has seen some of its biggest strikes, what we need is someone calm and level-headed.
AJ: Yep, a guest with balanced, uncontroversial opinions, who makes great effort not to offend.

MB: Well, on that note of balancing an opinion of course those are Jeremy’s views
JC: I just…! I was just giving two views for you!
AJ: well, we will be talking to Jeremy more later
