Someone forgot to tell him the Empire is no more.

"I bet she'd hit you just as look at you."

That is pretty typical for Chris Tarrant's worldly observations. Arrogant, critical, snarky and most annoyingly, he thinks he's charming in the process. I can't help but wonder if he's ever retraced his own steps after a program has aired and his 'Brit as Borat' schtick has had time to grate on the locals he encountered.

Pity, the localities are interesting, often unusual. And when the creature comforts are up to Tarrant's British standards, he can even be complimentary. It begs the question; why doesn't he just stay home? I guess some are born to feel superior.

"It tastes like.... the bottom of a rhinoceros' cage." That's it Chris, never let the colonies, or the third world, forget their place.
