James May isn't handling unemployment very well, judging by this video

It's not just Jeremy Clarkson looking for a new job after the BBC said it wouldn't renew his contract (for punching a junior colleague in the face), as his Top Gear co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond have hinted they're likely to leave the show as well.

May, who said he enjoyed working with Clarkson despite him being a "knob", does not seem to be handling impending unemployment very well.

Yesterday he went one step further, setting up a YouTube channel called "JM's unemployment tube".

The only video on it is of him wistfully playing the recorder, and noting, even more wistfully, at the end: "I'm here for the rest of my life folks."


James May was paid £500,000 for the last series of Top Gear.
