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…

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
