Re: The BBC Apologise For Jeremy Clarkson...

Normally I take what Jeremy says with a pinch of salt. Most of it is designed to wind people up. This time,though , I think he's gone too far. i wasn't on strike but most of my work colleagues were (different unions) and I can't see how him suggesting they should be executed in front of their families is a joke. Obviously he didn't mean it literally but it was still pretty insulting. Hopefully the next time he ends up in A/E after a Lamborghini crash, or his ego gets caught in a revolving door, the staff will point out that if they had been executed, he would have just died.

But if everyone took this attitude, the government could do whatever they liked. Just because governments lie all the time, it doesn't mean they shouldn't be challenged.
