Should Jeremy Clarkson be taken outside and shot in front of his family?

Post by Ivan on Fri Dec 02, 2011 12:05 am

First topic message reminder :

The politically incorrect comedian Bernard Manning once said: "I tell jokes. You never take a joke seriously”. Hmm, I’m not so sure.

Jeremy Clarkson is known to be a right-wing Tory and a personal friend of Cameron in the Chipping Norton set, along with Rebekah Brooks. His so-called humorous attack on public sector workers is typical of the Tory mindset which dismisses nurses, teachers, dinner ladies and cleaners as having “non-jobs”. Of course there’s no such thing as a non-job, except in the financial sector, where gambling has replaced work. Anything which involves a person earning money, paying tax and participating in society is a job.

Clarkson’s comments were directed towards ordinary hard-working people who are worried about how they are going to afford 5% inflation, higher education costs for their children, care for their parents and their own care in old age, all on frozen pay which is declining in real value. His sick humour is designed to draw attention away from the government’s miserable attempts to demonise these strikers.

Clarkson has made a career out of insulting more people than the Duke of Edinburgh has ever managed, but it’s all so boring. We had 'shock jocks' on the radio many years ago, and Bernard Manning’s humour bordered on racism. Clarkson is no better. On global warming, he said: "Let's just stop and think for a moment what the consequences might be. Switzerland loses its skiing resorts? The beach in Miami is washed away? North Carolina gets knocked over by a hurricane? Anything bothering you yet?"

Clarkson said that the United Nations should start thinking seriously about abolishing some languages: “What’s the point of Welsh? All it does is provide a silly maypole around which a bunch of hotheads can get all nationalistic”. On a chat show, he placed a 3D plastic map of Wales into a microwave oven and switched it on. He later defended that by saying: "I put Wales in there because Scotland wouldn't fit”. He attacked Gordon Brown by calling him “a one-eyed Scottish idiot”, as well as calling him the ‘c’ word (which is censored on this forum!).

If Tweeting and jokily threatening to blow up an airport warrants an arrest, shouldn't a wisecrack about the mass execution of strikers be similarly rewarded? Or at the very least, should the BBC tell this motormouth to get on his bike? He wouldn't like that either, since he says that motorists should knock down cyclists. Nice chap.

It has been alleged that The Daily Mail originated the phrase YCMIU - and it's what they usually do, make it up.

Just to conclude in my customarly polite way, by answering the question : I am largely retired ( at a relatively young age and working occasionally when I choose) on the proceeds of a 'prudent' life of bloody hard work - including contributing a service to private sector businesses and individuals - and throughout much of which I adopted a strategy, which I still maintain, of being able, for example, to readily afford a top-end Range Rover while actually driving a slightly battered 7 year-old Citroen Xsara Picasso . I am indeed on what is an easy street, and am grateful for it. A day never goes by without I tell myself that my good fortune is not shared by everyone, and I take a dim view of those who have no regard for the less fortunate.

My blog is to bring to the world the joys of Pease Pottage Conservative Club (q.v.) and to demonstrate all the seedy attitudes, self-serving greed, pig-headed ignorance and high-octane prejudice to be found in such circles. All of this might remind us of the likes of Jeremy Clarkson - but, hopefully, not yourself, old chap...? Shocked

Due to my great age, I realise that options I was able to choose during my working life would not operate in the same way today, when personal savings are constantly eroded by poor interest at a time of rising inflation, and Pension Funds enjoy the same degree of reliability as an MoD procurement budget.

My conscience is clear about bearing the outward appearance of a successful businessman whilst deploring the heartless attitude of Tory politicians and their supporters towards the less fortunate. I think it will rebound upon them.

Perchance to miss a new dimension to the thread? Aye, there's the rub.

In a column for a tabloid newspaper, Clarkson has mocked the sport of synchronised swimming as "Chinese women in hats, upside down, in a bit of water. You can see that sort of thing on Morecambe Beach. For free." This of course is a sick joke about the 23 cockle-pickers who drowned in Morecambe Bay in 2004.

It comes after Ofcom, the broadcasting regulator, received 30,000 complaints about Clarkson when he said during a TV interview that public sector workers who went on strike in November should be "executed in front of their families".

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/9000150/Jeremy-Clarkson-slammed-for-joke-about-death-of-23-Chinese-cockle-pickers.html

However, can we expect any better from a Tory supporter like Clarkson, when Cameron used Tourette's syndrome in a jibe about an opponent and when Osborne did the same with autism?

After initially denying that he used the word ‘n’-word while reciting "eeny, meeny, miny, moe" during filming for his ‘Top Gear’ programme, Jeremy Clarkson is now “begging for forgiveness”. And one person prepared to offer it is Michael Gove, who said: “As I understand Jeremy Clarkson has apologised, the word in question is horrendous and shouldn't be used. It seems to me this was a word he never intended to mutter, never intended to broadcast, he's been clear in his apology and I think we should leave matter there.” No surprises there; Michael Gove is a close friend of David Cameron. Cameron is a pal of Clarkson, and both are part of the Chipping Norton set with Rebekah Brooks and others.
 
http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/05/gove-says-clarkson-should-not-be-sacked-using-n-word
 
I think it’s high time that Clarkson was sacked by the BBC. He’s been given the benefit of the doubt too many times now, most recently over his ‘slope’ remark. Carol Thatcher was rightly sacked after making just one racist remark while backstage.
 
Apart from what’s on this thread, more examples of Clarkson’s foul tongue can be found here:-

Should Jeremy Clarkson be taken outside and shot?

Post by oftenwrong on Sat May 03, 2014 5:48 pm

Clarkson is a licensed buffoon - a bit like Boris without being quite so dangerous. In earlier, simpler times, he would have had a pig's bladder inflated on a stick with which to buffet the pompous. Much of what he says is designed to maintain an amused disdain of popular culture, which now includes of course political correctness.

Birds of a feather?  Rolling Eyes 
 
Farage steps in to defend Clarkson
 
UKIP leader Nigel Farage has stepped into the 'Top Gear' racism row to defend Jeremy Clarkson, saying the TV star had not gone over the line of being offensive. The BBC has put the presenter on a final warning over the controversy, but Farage said it was "just typical Clarkson". Clarkson admitted he will be sacked by the broadcaster if he makes another offensive remark, after claims he used the n-word while reciting the nursery rhyme "eeny, meeny, miny, moe".  

Speaking on a campaign visit to Dover, Farage said: "The more controversial Jeremy Clarkson is, the more people watch his programme, and the more money the BBC makes out of marketing a show that sells globally and makes them a fortune. I would think it's just typical Clarkson, getting very, very close to the line of being offensive but perhaps not quite going over it."

Mr Farage's intervention comes after Labour’s deputy leader Harriet Harman called for the BBC to sack the presenter. In a Twitter post Ms Harman said: "Anybody who uses the n-word in public or private in whatever context has no place in the British Broadcasting Corporation."

The N-word: Jeremy Clarkson has finally urinated on the live rail of racism
 
Extracts from an article by Musa Okwonga:-
 
People may scorn UKIP as political outsiders, but their sentiments are already among us; for years Jeremy Clarkson has been clothing them in a clown suit. He said the N-word in a manner that was meant to be mischievously offensive - and I, for one, am fed up with being expected to serve up elegant, dignified and dispassionate responses each time one of his jibes against a racial group emerges into the airwaves.

A few months ago I was asked to go on the radio to debate whether UKIP’s use of the phrase “Bongo Bongo Land” was racist. I refused, Bongo Bongo Land is so flagrantly racist that I didn’t see where the debate was. Bongo Bongo Land is the kind of thing that the racists probably smirked when they were carving up Africa at that conference in Berlin in the 1880s. For all I know, they may have been mumbling "eeny-meeny-miny-mo" when they were deciding which territories they wanted for themselves.

I hate his casual racism because its frequency and popularity are reminders of the very real prejudice that is still acceptable within Britain today. Clarkson’s casual racism is the kind of thing that landlords think when they are deciding not to let properties to black people. It is the kind of thing that led to the racist van campaign. The kind of thing that brings your kids home from school in floods of tears, that makes employers think twice before calling you to interview. It is insidious and it is widespread and we have learned from the BBC that Clarkson is not even going to be fined or suspended for it.

Here we go again.....   Evil or Very Mad

Top Gear driven from Argentina after Jeremy Clarkson number plate row

From an article by John Plunkett:-

"The cast and crew of TV’s Top Gear have had to flee Argentina after they were pelted with stones by a crowd incensed that one of their vehicles had a number plate that appeared to refer to the Falklands conflict. The crew, including presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond were filming in Patagonia, southern Argentina, as part of a programme featuring a remote highway passing through Chile and Argentina.

The BBC has denied any intended reference, saying the car was bought by a member of the production team and its plate was entirely coincidental."

I am surprised that UKIP hasn't unveiled Clarkson as a new candidate for a Parliamentary seat - he is suitably oafish for their tastes and, despite probably having a very small gear-stick, is several sizes too big for his boots, as are so many of their repulsive breed.

Clarkson's latest indiscretion is, allegedly, to have assaulted an assistant producer at the BBC who had failed to have his dinner ready on time! The git, who was already on a final warning, has been suspended pending further investigations.
