...that just says it all...

the telegraph:

Clarkson was asked what he would do with strikers, he replied: "I would have them all shot".
He continued: "I would take them outside and execute them in front of their families.
"I mean how dare they go on strike when they have these gilt-edged pensions that are going to be guaranteed, while the rest of us have to work for a living."
While some members of the audience laughed, the presenters, Matt Baker and Alex Jones, were clearly left stunned and embarassed by his comments as they shifted uncomfortably in their seats

I'm not that fussed about JC's comments, but the fact that the hosts were "clearly left stunned and embarassed...as they shifted uncomfortably in their seats" just shows what an insipid bunch of nitwits are allowed to host such programmes. That they couldn't challenge him and only react like rabbits caught in headlights just shows shouldn't be hosting a "chat show" () on TV.
