John Inverdale is a TV host best known for fronting sporting events on the BBC. Not football or any other proletarian pursuit, but middle class romps like tennis, rugger, horse racing and rowing. You may remember him weeping after a British duo were pipped to the post during a rowing final at London 2012. Those tears were for the middle-classes, and if you also happened to own a Land Rover and a Labrador, you were at home crying with him.
But when you're as middle class as John, you're going to have put your foot in it at least once. When Marion Bartoli won ladies Wimbledon in 2013, John praised her for having overcome the athletic barrier of not being "a looker". Like any bumbling sexist idiot, the great British public let that one slide. Like Plebgate and Boris Johnson's career, it was an innocent slip-up.
Sadly, John's media immunity may be running out. Inverdale has recently been covering the Cheltenham races, where he experienced a slip of the tongue so brazen you'd think he had Tourette's. "Rose cunted glasses"?
Here's to you John, the arrogance of the British toff is alive and well.
