Why the fuck is he apologising?

Jeremy Clarkson has called Gordon Brown

a one-eyed Scottish idiot

Can anyone spot any factual inaccuracies in that statement?

No, neither can I. But now he's apologised, so Gordon can feel smug again.
But the Royal National Institute for Blind People called the comment offensive.

"Any suggestion that equates disability with incompetence is totally unacceptable" said chief executive Lesley-Anne Alexander

But he didn't. He said that Gordon Brown had one eye and was stupid. He didn't equate the two, although Ms Alexander is doing a pretty fucking good job herself.
Scottish Labour leader Iain Gray joined in the criticism.

"Such a comment is really a reflection on Jeremy Clarkson and speaks for itself," he said.

Yes, it shows he can accurately judge public mood and doesn't have his tongue wedged up Gordon's Arse (eh Kerry?)
"Most people here are proud that the prime minister is a Scot and believe him to be the right person to get the UK through this global economic crisis."

And he's just done a great job of equating "Scottish" and "stupid".

It's fucking laughable the legions of arselickan celtic Mafia idiots who have lined up to defend the gorgon.

Sadly one suspects Clarkson has bottled it instead of sticking to his guns. The BBC wouldn't dare take him on and sack him since he's the driving force behind BBC2's biggest ratings winner (unlike Woss). He's made mistake on this....

He was still right though.... And Iain Gray is a cunt

it's either banned or compulsory said...

I'm not sure if this is a step forward in allowing presenters to say it how it really is or the start of a slippery slope that will see Jeremy ousted by the Righteous.
"taking the mickey". Isn't that anti-Irish racist stereotyping ?

I for one did not believe a word of Clarkson's apology. He only did it to get the righteous off his back.
Although i dont see why he should have apologised for telling the truth.

What about Clarkson for PM? That really would be putting the cat amongst the pigeons.
