Jeremy Clarkson: Let Them Eat Cake

I have rarely read more ignorant words than these:

“If you do lose your job and you end up living in a barn, with just a fire to keep you warm and nothing to eat but what you can find in a hedge, be happy. Because you’ll be having a much better life than me.”

He knows this isn’t true, you know this isn’t true and the guy in the barn sure as hell knows this isn’t true. This came from an article in the Telegraph about the superpower the rich in the UK are using to keep people from talking about them when they do stupid things. Clarkson is, of course, fully behind this superpower.

Free Speech In the UK is Dying

I will be the first to admit Jeremy Clarkson has said and done some really stupid things but criticizing the English Prime Minister isn’t one of them. Everyone should have the right to call their politicians idiots or snollygosters. Most of them seem to go out of their way to prove that they are idiots. Only despots and totalitarian states try to ban this sort of thing. Oh, and the UK. You can thank your MPs for leading you down the glorious road to Venezuela or Russia.

Annnnnd he’s already apologized. Perhaps it would be better if he simply mimed from now on.

A Clarkson Victory

A win for Jeremy Clarkson as the UK media watch organization declares that he is allowed to tell jokes on television. I am not sure why they were called in on this, it seems pretty clear that it was a comedian telling a joke, but apparently a bureaucrat is now needed in the UK to tell if a joke is a joke or not. Well, keeps somebody employed I guess.

For a reminder of who the hell Jeremy Clarkson is see here and here.
