Clarkson Policy U-Turn on Unions

After advocating an Augusto Pinochet style industrial relations policy: “Frankly, I would have them all shot. I would take them outside and execute them in front of their families.” Jeremy Clarkson appears to have performed a policy u-turn.

Mind you, Guido can’t actually locate the statement of apology, has he really apologised or has the BBC apologised on his behalf?

UPDATE: The exact form of words he used was “I didn’t for a moment intend these remarks to be taken seriously – as I believe is clear if they’re seen in context. If the BBC and I have caused any offence, I’m quite happy to apologise for it alongside them.” Looks a little mealy-mouthed…
