Do you remember the media hype last December when Jeremy Clarkson made a joke on TV suggesting that striking public sector workers should be “taken out and executed”? The left just couldn’t wait to jump on the bandwagon and demand his sacking. Barnet Blogger VickiM went as far as to call him a c*nt. Nice.
Clarkson frequently makes provocative comments simply to create a reaction. If you don’t like what he has to say, or the way that he says it, you don’t have to listen to him. But that is not good enough for the swivel-eyed Trots, who simply cannot bear the thought of anyone expressing an opinion that is contrary to their deluded and misguided belief system.
Roll the clock forward to May 2012 and Labour MP Kerry McCarthy uses Twitter to suggest that a fellow train passenger “should have been killed” for wearing an offensive T shirt. Of course, this is different to the Clarkson case because, as Mz McCarthy said in a subsequent Tweet, her comments were “obviously flippant.”
Obviously. Perish the thought that anyone should consider her a sanctimonious hypocrite.
