Clarkson, Arse or Phoney ? You Decide

I have always doubted that Jeremy Clarkson was what he claimed to be . Apparently he recycles his rubbish ( read his boooks ) and was bullied at school .I am certain he is not a Conservative but instead is in bed with the men in beards of the Liberal camp . Oh no scratch that perfectly politically incorrect exterior and you have a fat man`s Esther Ranthzen not a PJ O Rourke . So I am pleased to see him looking like an arse

"'TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson has lost money after publishing his bank details in his newspaper column. The Top Gear host revealed his account numbers after rubbishing the furore over the loss of 25 million people's personal details on two computer discs. He wanted to prove the story was a fuss about nothing. But Clarkson admitted he was "wrong" after he discovered a reader had used the details to create a £500 direct debit to the charity Diabetes UK' - The BBC Website.

I expect the grainy black and white pictures of him furtively mounting a bicycle to be in the papers any day

The one thing I'm sure about is that he is neither as funny, fearless, or as right-wing as he thinks he is.

Surely the only reason the lefty Beeb indulge his (mostly) good sense frothing at the mouth is that it sells in dozens of countries around the world.

Prime minister? I don't think so. Are we meant to be impressed by the 37,000 signatures? Less than one thousandth of a percent of adults, though my father in law is one of them!

Almost certainly a bit of an arse, but not intentially phoney, newms.

Phoney arse surely?

I couldn't give a stuff about his politics really, he's a petrol-head and makes Top Gear. My son has just got into Top Gear and it was great over xmas to watch the prog together. sadly we kept shushing my daughter (the one who wants to be a journalist) who modestly did some colouring instead.

One of my fave stories (he has a few) is Clarkson buying a sports car, driving to work, having to fill up on the way, I think, as one tank wouldn't get him there, then parking up and not being able to get out of the car as it had wing doors. Well that's what I heard and the delicious thing is.. you can believe it can't you? Hee hee.

Master Newman is already car obsessed P

Inimitable Mr. N.

I own up, I watch Top Gear, and I claim my £100 prize.

I don't think that Mr Clarkson's jolly japes would be quite so much fun if he was P.M.

As to his party LIBERAL - no, no, no, you jest surely. He certainly can't be Labour as they travel in caravans rather than drop them from great hights. UKIP perhaps!

He is all man as far as I am concerned. I would love to have dinner with him. Can it be arranged?
He did a great job supporting British troops, who else bothers about them?

Never trusted him: he was in favour of banning hunting.

Newmania said...

Mrs. SP I have heard dreadful rumours ,I watch it as well I think his books are rubbish though

Ellee, all man ? Hmmm why does he need such fast sports cars then I think LBS has a good point , why was he in favour of banning hunting eh ?

I posted a great response to this but there was a power-outage I the street for a second and the router burped and reset me, and it was lost.

The gist of it was that poor Clarkson being probably the only thing the Stalinist robbing Booby-See has got to sell in reality, as opposed to picking people’s pockets by force, is Top Gear. Clarkson May and Hammond could probably go but I expect they are paid a lot, and the ghastly BBC pimps in White City or wherever need these good-gyus to prove they are “unbiased broadcasters” or some such tosh.

Interestingly, our blog, http://libertarianalliance.wordpress.com, was hit yesterday by the following search-engine string;
“Packaging Waste Jeremy Clarkson”, which I thought was so droll that I responded with a post on it!

David Davis said...

Also, for "Idle";

37,000 represents slightly more than 1 in 1,000 adults, or therefore 0.1%, much bigger than 1/1,000 of a % !!!

If you personally wanted to be prime minister and were remotely political, 1/1000 is the odds that Ladbrokes or summat would give on you (or me!)

idle said...

D Davis for Chancellor! But was it a deliberate mistake, or Clarksonian exaggeration?

Don`t follow this DD. I am not technical at all and must be lead like a child

I have notced that motoring journalism is the one part of the media not subject to ubiquitous Liberal bias and it spawns some quite good stuff as a result. Sorry about you outage.

Newmania said...

Oh the cunning of Idle ....

Clarkson often has a hilarious turn of phrase.

Like the Daily Mail I sometimes wonder if Clarkson is there to draw us renegades out in the open to be shot.

See ya' all in the gulag.

My new friend Richard Madeley who is in my blog roll often has Clarkson over for a few beers, maybe you should ask him about our Jezzas politics?

Newmania said...
