Jeremy Clarkson's critics should be taken out and shot

Jeremy Clarkson got into tremendous trouble last night for suggesting on BBC’s The One Show that the public sector “workers” who took part in yesterday’s strike should be shot.

This is silly. It should be patently obvious to anyone who is familiar with his style or has seen one of his programmes – ie: everyone in the world – that Clarkson didn’t mean it. For one thing, being an informed fellow he would be perfectly aware that the government simply hasn’t the money to spend on bullets right now. For another, he must know that it’s perfectly possible that among all the diversity outreach consultants, renewable energy/recycling advisers and union reps who spent their day on the picket lines/early Christmas shopping in Bluewater yesterday at least a handful might actually have jobs which make some tiny contribution to…

  1. Just seen your interview on BBC. Well said! Perfectly put. Hit the nail right on the head. Will subsribe now! :o)

  2. This is brilliant, I’ve been looking for a spoof blog taking the mick out of extreme right-wing nuts for so long, I’ve finally found it. Whoever the actor behind James Delingpole is, hats off to you

  4. I’m only sorry that 21000 people have now taken it upon themselves to complain to the BBC about Clarkson’s comments. Excellent articles James, thank you for having the courage to set out the mainstream view – most of us took Clarkson’s comments in the manner intended – humour, with a grain of intent!

  5. Everytime a leftie makes a comment likes this his/her allies hyperventilate about the lack of sense of humour among the critics (and also the right in general). Turn the argument against them.

  6. I am a union rep, and every time we upset the ignorant of society, like you, by taking legal industrial action, it warms my heart.
    If you have ever done a day`s work, instead of living off your mother and father, you would understand the depth of feeling towards those that expect the working class to pay for the mistakes of your ilk.
    I am also from Doncaster, birthplace of Jeremy, Up His Own Arse, Clarkson. I expect he will not be revisiting Doncaster in a while, nor would he be welcome to.
    Comments like his are not said in jest by people like him. There is many a true word spoken under the guise of humour. He meant every word, and he should be sacked and jailed for it.
    Far right cretins, like you and your ilk, have no understanding of the real world that the rest of us live in. You are so out of touch with reality that you may as well be living on a different planet.
    I would love to meet the likes of you and Clarkson around a quiet, dark corner one time.
    You are the scum of society, and deserve to be looked upon as such!

    1. Did your union stop Gordon Brown creating Britain’s financial debt, deregulating the banks, selling the gold at rock bottom, and everything else?

      The thing about the pension pots is that medicine is making the average age of the population increase, so a small increase in contributions are needed from the public sector, unless you the taxpayer to effectively pay extra the public pensions, which are generous already.

      By the way, the threats and intimidation from union stewards is all hot air; the only thing private sector unions do in the long-term is bankrupt your employers by pushing up your own wage packets and making the company fall foul of cheap foreign competition. If you want to stop cheap imports, you need to get behind Delingpoles anti-EUSSR campaign, and vote UKIP, not Labour. All these disasters for everybody are the fault of socialist strike and dissent, the same stuff that caused the USSR to go under.

      If you want to meet these people “around a dark corner”, you’re in a pipe dream. Look what happened to Arthur Scargill, who has to be protected by an office like Fort Knox, only accessible by an underground car park with full time security. You end up making the workers unemployed by driving industry to China where wages are lower and unions are prohibited. Also John Prescott, with his working class credentials, two Jags, and a long so-called “eating disorder” consisting of going to top restaurants repeatedly each day to gorge, empty and re-gorge, in the Roman banquet manner.

      Yeah, I’ve heard all this hard man union talk all my life, but you guys need to cut down on the beer bellies and try running instead of darts before you’re anything like a challenge to anyone.

      1. Nige, it was that neo-conservative climate denialist Lawson that was instrumental in deregulating the banks. He was also instrumental in deregulating the energy markets that provided us British consumers with above inflation price rises. Thanks Lawson!

    2. Union members should be free to go on strike, but bosses should be free to fire workers at whim.

      The garbage strike in Southampton is dragging on because the council can’t fire the b*stards, even though hundreds of unemployed people have volunteered to take their place.

      And people wonder why Britain is going down the toilet.

    3. I am working class and proud of the fact. I also agree with the comments made by Jeremy Clarkson. Its people like you who think the world owes them a living that are the problem. I would love to meet you seanmcgowan9 around a quiet dark corner one time.
