In the grand scheme of things Clarkson is insignificant, yet another over paid gob shite who's never done a hard days work in his life. Another millionaire who likes to tell hard working people struggling to bring up their families how to live their lives. Hope the prick gets the sack.

Bert1. He is bloke who has never grown up, still playing with boys toys, trouble is a hell of a lot of people are the same{meaning never grown up} thats why his programme makes so much money for the beeb. The beeb likes to have motor mouths {remember J Ross} and as long as we keep pouring the licence fee money into the system the beeb will never get its act together. Not that I believed in the strike by the way

That's not strictly true. Clarkson was popular with TV companies because he worked out cheaper than most presenters, the reason for this was that Clarkson did all his own research and script writing, this saved the TV companies from employing a gang of support people. No doubt these days he has an easier life, but his path to stardom was through hard work.

Other Offensive remarks Clarkson said..


In October 1998 Hyundai complained to the BBC about what they described as "bigoted and racist" comments he made at the Birmingham Motor Show, where he was reported as saying that the people working on the Hyundai stand had "eaten a dog" and that the designer of the Hyundai XG had probably eaten a spaniel for his lunch. Clarkson also allegedly referred to those working on the BMW stand as "Nazis", although BMW said they would not be complaining. In a later incident during a Top Gear episode broadcast on 13 November 2005, Clarkson, while talking about a Mini design that might be "quintessentially German", made a mock Nazi salute, and made references to the Hitler regime and the German invasion of Poland by setting the GPS system to Poland.


In April 2007 he was criticised in the Malaysian parliament for having described one of their cars, the Perodua Kelisa, as the worst in the world, built "in jungles by people who wear leaves for shoes". A Malaysian government minister countered, pointing out that no complaints had been received from UK customers who had bought the car.


While in Australia, Clarkson made disparaging remarks aimed at Gordon Brown,
in February 2009, calling him a "one-eyed Scottish idiot" and accused him of lying. These comments were widely condemned by the Royal National Institute of Blind People and also Scottish politicians who requested that he should be taken off air. Furthermore, the comments were condemned as racist. He subsequently provided a qualified apology for remarks regarding Brown's "personal appearance"


In July 2009 though, Clarkson made another indignant remark about the British Prime Minister during a warm-up while recording a Top Gear show, apparently describing Brown as "a silly git" Although several newspapers reported that he had subsequently argued with BBC 2 controller Janice Hadlow, who was present at the recording, the BBC denied that he had been given a "dressing down". John Whittingdale, Conservative chair of the Culture Select Committee remarked: "Many people will find that offensive, many people will find that word in particular very offensive i am surprised he felt it appropriate to use it.


On 6 July 2010 Clarkson reportedly angered gay rights campaigners after he made a remark on Top Gear that did not get aired on the 4 July's episode. But guest Alastair Campbell wrote about it on Twitter. Clarkson apparently said he "Demanded the right not to get bummed". The BBC later said that they cut this remark out as they "edited down" the interview as it was too long to fit into the show.


His 4 September 2011 column for The Sun newspaper drew angry remarks in response to Clarkson's call to abolish the Welsh language: "I think we are fast approaching the time when the United Nations should start to think seriously about abolishing other languages. What’s the point of Welsh for example? All it does is provide a silly maypole around which a bunch of hotheads can get all nationalistic."

People jumping on the bandwagon . . . did those who complain know what he said nefore the reported remark.

I agree it was slightly silly but do people REALLY believe he wanted those on strike shot or is it a sense of humour by-pass (although it was in bad taste).

Clarkson is a privileged prigg. He needs to get in the real world. Most public servants work damned hard for their money. Not like him. I'd like to bend his nose.

Maybe it was a stupid thing to say but some of the PC reaction is just as extreme in the other direction. Some people just have no sense of humour. Can't anyone take a joke any more?

I'd be very surprised if the beeb sack him. Like or loathe it (i like it) top gear generates a staggering amount of money for the corporation in return for a modest outlay.
