Jeremy Clarkson

A sketch from this morning of Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson. If you live in the UK then you will probably have heard about his comments that have caused so much outrage. Here is a clip that is doing the rounds on the internet of his out-of-context words on 'The One Show'.

I'm not a big fan of Clarkson, I very rarely watch Top Gear, but the way people have reacted to this is extraordinary, mainly people on Twitter calling for him to be sacked. How can anyone truly believe that he would want someone shot? In fact he actually defended the strikers earlier in the programme, but the people complaining were probably the ones who didn't see that part of the show. It reminds me of the uproar by the church after 'Life of Brian' was released. Seriously...calm down people. This link might shed some light on it.

To sum up, if Clarkson were a politician, I'd be extremely worried, but he's not, he just wants to sell his DVD, which by most accounts is storming up the christmas charts ;)

Richard Hammond once said that anyone who takes Jeremy Clarkson seriously is a bigger idiot that Clarkson himself, and that about sums up the whole furore.

People seem to want to go out of their way to be offended, and then tell everyone else about it, these days.

Anyway, great sketch, Paul.
