John McCririck was on with Julian Worricker who covering for Jeremy Vine this week. They were talking about Betting advertisement on TV when the football is on.

John was a disgrace on Radio 2, he's such a loudmouth and doesn't really care what he says too people".

I wish he understands that he's only a Racing Pundit and doesn't own or run the country!!

You have got too let it go over your head and laugh at him. Laughing

McCriricks a rent-a-gob. Anybody who books him knows exactly what they're going to get. So all the blame for having an idiot on the Vine show lies entirely with the Vine show producers.

At least ITV and C4 are slowly getting rid of him!

McCririck is a loose Cannon and any broadcasters nightmare. Why he was bringing up God and the bible is beyond me. Know wonder Channel 4 Racing ditched him. It's a wonder Women weren't mentioned.

...........because the other person is a vicar or priest (sorry but I didn't catch who he was or all of the interview).

Mark, Channel 4 racing hasn't "ditched him" - they have reduced his appearances on screen.

Two points:

1. Having a Rev perhaps wasn't such a good idea. It allowed JMcC to have a swipe at God, which wasn't part of the agenda, and overlooked that fact that many people of no religious beliefs clearly have genuine concerns over the issue.

2. There is undoubtedly an argument to be heard in favour of the gambling ads but McC's overbearing manner completely submerged it and he demeaned himself by his behaviour.
