I spoke of Victoria Coren a little while back, and now it’s time to call on her brother Giles, albeit for different reasons:
Giles Coren exploded with rage on social media this morning as he revealed thieves pinched his £65,000 eco-Jaguar for the second time in just three months.
The TV presenter, 51, turned detective back in April after his beloved car was stolen but police told him they didn’t have the ‘manpower to investigate’.
Of course they don’t. Perhaps it’s because if you go on Twatter and call a footballer a nigger, the response will be dramatic, and immediate. But to continue:
In an incredible thread, [Coren] posted pictures of his journey in tracking down the Jaguar I-Pace, which he eventually found in Highgate, north London, telling followers he ‘got his electric kitty cat back’.
Didn’t help much. After spending a small fortune to re-key his car and change all its “anti-theft” doodads, the car was stolen again, leaving Coren in an incandescent rage.
In a furious tweet, Mr Coren wrote: ‘They’ve stolen my fucking car AGAIN!!!! Cost me three grand to reset the keys and put in a new tracking system after last time and what good does it do? FUCK ALL.
‘If you see a black Jaguar iPace reg ending JVN could you tell me? I’ll give you a million pounds.’
Giles, ol’ buddy: if you’re going to drop a million bucks, you should rather move out of London, to a more law-abiding place like say, Reading.
I’ll give him the last word, though:
The food critic began: ‘Last night the cunts stole my new Jaguar I-Pace. So Fuck them, fuck the environment and fuck any sort of giving a shit about cars.
‘I’m buying a six year old diesel fucking Skoda and everyone can just fuck off.’
Note to the Greens: when you’ve lost the food critics… after all, this electric car thing will soon lose its allure for other reasons.
