Disillusioned Discordian

Clarkson, Bastion of free speech?

What’s the world coming to? In this day an age a man can’t make a harmless quip about murdering prostitutes without and avalanche of joyless moralist casting scorn. Let’s have a looks at Clarkson’s his heinous crime:

As he completed a lorry-driving task, he said: “This is a hard job and I’m not just saying that to win favour with lorry drivers, it’s a hard job. Change gear, change gear, change gear, check mirror, murder a prostitute, change gear, change gear, murder. That’s a lot of effort in a day.”

I watched the program and that made me laugh at loud because it’s funny, and you know what in danger of sounding like a Tory I do have to admit this is ‘PC gone made’. Next people will be saying it’s not on to joke about murdering spastics or writing fantasy stories about raping girls aloud… oh wait hang on.

I like Clarkson not because I always agree with what he says, particular on environmental issues but because he is not afraid to say what he thinks and to do so in an amusing manner. His polar adventure was hilarious, mocking the earnest adventure types by driving to the North pole in a 4×4 and eating Foie Gras and drinking Chablis.

The whole Brand Ross thing may have a damaging effect on BBC comedy – even if they are a couple of 24 carat cocks. Clarkson is an ever bigger fuckwit than Brand but yea his remark was a joke and quite good if a little tasteless.

The excellent Marina Hyde summed it up better than I can in this Saturday’s Guardian:


What Brand and Ross did crossed a line, but Quelle surprise two cocks acted like cocks. It’s a shame it takes an event for people to realize they perhaps should not be getting our liscence fee money as it was clear from the offset to me.

Your right Clarkson is cock, but at least he is a cock with balls (not sure where this metaphor is heading, best stop it now).

Ross and Brand personaly invaded an indivduals home to leave an answerphone message and then publicaly brodcasted it. That’s an unfair intrustion into someone’s private life. Clarkson making a joke about types of people is tasteless, but he thrives ofg this sort of thing. Still no indivduals have been mortaly offended.
