Jeremy Clarkson: Idiot


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 10 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Jeremy Clarkson, publishing his bank details in The Sun after half the country’s bank details went missing:

All you’ll be able to do with them is put money into my account. Not take it out. Honestly, I’ve never known such a palaver about nothing.

Jeremy Clarkson, after someone set up a £500 direct debit on his account using his bank details:

We must go after the idiots who lost the discs and stick cocktail sticks in their eyes until they beg for mercy.

There’s no better way to start the week than with a healthy, juicy, oh-so-lovely dose of schadenfreude.
