For Crying Out Loud! The World According to ‘Jeremy’ Stewart!
Has the Director of an independent courier in Scotland been mistaken for a famous BBC broadcaster?
What’s in a name? Quite a lot it turns out, if you find yourself being mistakenly given the same moniker as telly motormouth Jeremy Clarkson.
I share a couple of qualities with the Top Gear host – we’re both unashamed petrolheads (Porsches are over hyped) and we’re both outspoken on transport.
But that’s probably where the similarity ends. I wouldn’t be seen dead in double denim, there’s no chance you’d find me smoking and I’ve never been accused of insulting Mexicans.
Most important of all, I’ve *never* been called Jeremy. Until now, that is.
The name mix-up happened in my local paper. You can imagine my utter shock when I opened this week’s edition and discovered a headline referring to me as Jeremy!
So it got me wondering – had the journalist been reading my recent open letter to transport minister Derek Mackay or my comments about the over-the-top new 20mph zones is central Edinburgh?
Had she briefly muddled my name and that of the Top Gear presenter because she found my musings inflammatory or controversial in a similar way to Jezza’s regular outbursts? Surely not!
I may not be able to offer a ‘star in a reasonably priced car’ however at our courier in Scotland we do have plenty good honest drivers in red vans…not quite the same is it?
So on that bombshell…Why not have a read of the original Eagle Couriers press release and find out more about the original story!
