Code:47.3 W Coppinger to Heads Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!
I actually reckon Clark's was as bad as that "edge" that does the rounds on UToobs where the batsman appears to miss by a coupla of feet. Except for real. In a test. In the Ashes. 5th of five.

"Even when England lost 5-0 in 2006-07 I don't remember them folding like this. This is as bad as I have seen from an England side."

Tbh, I'm not sure it was a "great decision" so to speak, it was obviously the right decision, but I wonder if the umpire (given all the other mistakes made in this match) just missed the ball clipping anything whatsoever...obviously I have no real reason to think this, but, this possibility did occur to me.
I, on the other hand, wouldn't have given it, but that would have been a Shakoor Rana moment
Referral, Not the Plan A
It doesn't matter who you support, England or Australia, it's a safe bet that supporters from both sides will agree the standard of umpiring this 2009 Ashes series has been nothing short of abysmal.
Interesting article, but it should be borne in mind that the first example is incorrect.
Koertzen didn't take Strauss' word for it, Doctrove actually saw it carry so there's no grounds for going to the 3rd umpire as the umpire's view wasn't obscured.

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
I know that's what they said. Billy saying he saw it carry was what I was referring to as interesting.
