      misterned says:

      Typical of the left to deceitfully only take one half of the two part answer that Jeremy gave on the one show about the strikes, then choose to get outraged by it and demand an independent non-left wing voice be silenced.

      It clearly demonstrates the innate dishonesty of the left wing mind-set combined with their lack of sense of humour and their innate totalitarian tendencies alongside their innate hypocrisy too, because they cheer whenever one of them calls for Thatcher to be executed.

          Clarkson will laughing all the way to his mate Dave’s house. Both of them with Osborne and Brooks could have a good laugh about their ideas of dealing with the poor.

            “The poor”?

            You mean the public servants on 5% higher salaries than private sector workers? The public sector workers with the gilt-edged pension funds? The gilt-edged pension funds that are provided by the private sector workers, who earn 5% less?

            That “poor”?

          • Rage Against the Political Elite says:

            Its all apart of the Corrupted Policies and Laws that the Low life Fraudster class have forced on the economy and broken the system of risk and reward. Meritocracy. Life and everything.

            Energy Theft Policy.
            Health and Safety Madness.
            Immigration policy, filling the country to the rafters.
            Public Sector Payments to the Chief executives paying themselves hundreds of thousands for being totally useless sh-t houses.
            Transport Policy.
            Criminal Justice system.
            Phoney Drug War.

            Phoney War in Afghanistan.

            The Political Class have broken everything

          • CYNICAL OLD MAN says:

            Anonymong, they say a person is judged by the company he keeps. I think I’d prefer Clarkson as a mate than those of Blair and Brown : The Gaddafi family, various eastern European despots (Kazakhstan etc.) Whelan, Draper, Campbell, Watson, McBride, Mandelson, the gold-digging Kinnock family, ad nauseum.

            When you look at that little lot, I think Clarkson is the least of Wavey Davey’s worries.

            That’s not nice either.

            Isn’t it time Clarkson retired and let a younger person do the job.

            There’s a long queue of people who would do it better/cheaper

        Great comment from Littlejohn this morning along the lines of:

        “For the record I don’t agree with Clarkson – I think they should be hung, drawn and quartered”.

        It’s been a pleasure watching the left-wing chatterati get there knickers in a twist about this. They really do need to get a sense of humour.

        They’ve spent 25 years swooning in faux indignation over The Sainted Thatcher’s ‘There is no such thing as society’ whereas when you read the entire passage it makes complete sense in its context.

        But no.

        They’re not interested. Just a stick to beat Fatch and the T*ries with.

        Same with the ‘Nasty Party’ quote that they just love handing out.

        The T*ries have only themselves to blame though. Liam Byrne leaves a mocking ‘Sorry, there’s no money left’ letter and they just let it slide. The poison dwarf calls her own leadership ‘wicked and malicious’ and yet we hear no mention.

        The combination of the two ‘A wicked and malicious Labour party that quite literally spent all the money and mocked the entire nation about having done so..’ should be sho-horned into every single T*ry sp*ee*ch.

          “‘A wicked and malicious Labour party that quite literally spent all the money and mocked the entire nation about having done so..’ should be sho-horned into every single T*ry sp*ee*ch.”

          Which would have resonated if the tories had not decided to piss money away all around the third world, into the ever deeper EU money pit, the IMF bailout plan, or on horrifically expensive vanity projects such as high speed train lines.
          At a stroke they cre*ated a rod for their backs that the looting party and it’s PR agency, the BBC, gleefully exploited.
          If they had been fiscally responsible and said spending must be curbed as there is no extra at the moment for any of these things, people would have been more inclined to go along with the cuts mantra.

          Inste*ad they went into full idiot mode, urging people to ‘feel proud’ about DfID spending, ‘helping neighbours’ with billions of taxpayers pounds, throwing billions at same neighbours ‘burning houses’ and pissing away billions more on a ‘big bazooka’ for those very same profligate neighbours.

          All at a time of rising unemployment, job insecurity, pension cuts, rising fuel poverty and real hardship here at home.
          Honestly, if there were a prize for arrant stupidity, Cameron & Co would win a diamond encrusted, solid gold one.

          We replaced to looters with idiots it seems.

        Well said ministered, SKY news let the cat out the bag last night when they EVENTUALLY broadcast what he said BEFORE the line about shooting the strikers. He was making a joke about BBC impartiality and made TWO statements about the strikers the first of which was how wonderful etc etc they were where as on the other hand….
        Any fucker who has spent the past few days calling for his head is either a thick c unt or an opportunistic thick c unt.
        Millibands condemnation is laughable as the stuttering idiot prefaced it by saying he hadnt even heard it. What a useless tosser.

      Another Orwellian attempt to prevent freedom of speech.

      Man makes weak joke about strikers and left-wing seeks to have his career ended. Result is now that nobody would dream of saying anything even slightly negative about strikers. However, you can say what you like about Margaret Thatcher.

      Does anybody fancy printing some “shoot the strikers!” car stickers. It’s time we stood up for the principles of free speech because quite seriously if we don’t start standing up for ourselves our freedoms are gradually going to be eroded over time until we have none left. These people are picking off the easier targets first but every time they are moving the boundaries always in the direction they want the to be moved.

      This isn’t a party political thing. It should matter to everybody.

    • 240
      Ampers says:

      Clarkson was banking on the fact that the left are totally devoid of humour.

      And their faces reflect this as they get older and disillusioned in life – I cite Glenda Jackson as an example.

      Is it true that, in a cabinet meeting, Cameron has told his cabinet to be gentle with Milliband, at least until just before the next general election and that he (Cameron) would keep any major attacks to PMQs as few watch that.

      Milliband and Balls. These will keep labour out of control for years to come.

    Clarkson’s got previous re publicity to coincide with his projects. Specifically when he borrowed a Lightning interceptor jet & stuck it in his front garden, then claimed to the local planning department that it was a jet powered leaf blower. Who tipped them off if not him?

        He had nothing to be sorry about.

        He is probably Britain’s best television comedian for more than thirty years and he had the audacity to crack a joke! Not a great one but one that fell on millions of sympathetic ears. Why does he sell so well around the world? Because he amuses us in a hair brained sort of way and because his is the most prominent anti P.C. out speak stance of any entertainer. May his DVD’s sell very well..

    Poor lefties, record numbers watch ‘faux news’ and record numbers watch top gear with it being a main bread and butter winner for the BBC as well LOL.

    Just imagine is Sky managed to poach them, The Beeb already losing F1, no Prem league footy, no great movie selection and here the left wing might force out Top Gear if they are not careful.

    Everyone has already got less and less reasons to watch the BBC as the days go by and I doubt they can survive on re-runs of Frozen Planet for decades to come.

            Attenborough is also a supporter of some Eugenics movement who want mass de-population of the world. How they intend that should be done, they are more than a little vague on publicly.

      One extra bill of £5,400 was for the patent and design of the coat of arms by the College of Arms, while an additional charge of £1,600 was for “preparation of the panelled area for the coat of arms to be displayed”, a spokesman for the Speaker said.

      The “error” arose because the extra costs “came from other budgets”.

      If Bercow was shuffling costs then he was trying to game the system at best, or conceal the total cost at worst.

      • 133
        Heraldicus says:

        One of the gripes over the centuries is that various individuals ennobled or otherwise honoured by a grateful nation had to pay for their own Grant of Arms. It seems that Bercow is unique in pushing that cost onto the taxpayer.

        One of the quirks of English heraldry, as opposed to Scottish heraldry, is that the motto is not neccesarily part of the Grant of Arms. It is depicted in the Letters Patent but not described in the official blazon. Thus it could be changed on a daily basis if the armiger so wished. The upshot is that Bercows childen are only “lumbered” with the shield and crest but not the motto.

    To Clarkson I say “Bless you my son” for you have yet again made the left wing fools look ridiculous. Their contrived faux “outrage” was predictable enough and Clarkson predicted it perfectly! The sad spectacle of Little Milliband joining in, on the obvious instructions of his union masters, was embarassing to watch, even for me – and I have seen everything! Clarkson’s dvd sale will rocket, as will viewing figure for the new series of “Top Gear” and all done for him by the unions at no cost to himself – wonderful to watch!!

    Geoffrey G Brooking says:

    The way Jeremy Clarkson put across his argument shows a typical example of the anger and frustration felt by those of us who Clarkson says “work for a living”, especially in the private sector.

    Some of the pensions currently on offer in the public sector far outweigh those of ordinary workers in the private sector and let’s not forget that before the coalition came to power these same very public sector troughers were getting decent annual pay deals too.

    Indeed, the mess in the public sector is a deliberate trap set by Labour for the new government.

    If people in the private sector have to work hard just to get any rise and at the same time meet tough productivity targets why not in the public sector too?

    They should be glad of a one per cent pay increase because given the current state of finances thanks to the mess Labour left behind and the expected fall in overall living standards thanks to the Eurozone crisis that a certain Tony Blair wanted us to be “at the heart of” they should glad at getting any increase at all.

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
