Given the media outpouring over the Jeremy Clarkson suspension saga (he has not been sacked at time of posting – 17:30 11 March) I thought I’d offer answers to a few of the reasons posted on Change.org for Jeremy Clarkson to be reinstated.

The originals are in italics (spelling and grammar mistakes unchanged) and my response in bold.

“I pay my TV license to ensure that irreverent people can express themselves. If you become boarding and politically correct, you may disappear BBC.”

You pay your TV license because it is the law.

“A minority of over sensitive people should not ruin one of Britons favourite shows.”

Oversensitive people such as the country of Argentina, India’s high commision, the Mexican senate and anyone offended by the term ‘n**ger’.

“BBC, you don’t wanna piss off 300 million people.”

It worked for Hitler.

“Jeremy is a bastion of light in a dark PC world”

I like PC World. They sell nice computers and usually turn the electric on from my experience.

“Clarkson suspended for arguing while Jimmy Savile got away with multiple rapes”

Clarkson has been suspended for alleged assault, actually, which is against the law.

“I’m signing because the far bigger evil is censorship via political correctness which the BBC have been indulging in for far too long”

The BBC has a remit for impartiality

“Freedom of speech, freedom of expression!!!

And the freedom to allegedly punch people? P.S. He was not shot.

“Because its the only thing left that justifies the license fee.

This is just left wing BBC censoring the only right wing comedy left.”

I think you’ll find the BBC features David Cameron and Nigel Farage regularly.

“I’m signing because Clarkson is a superb presenter and Top Gear is without doubt one the BBC’s better programmes. The viewing figures support this.”

As they also do with Mrs Brown’s Boys.

Let me just say for the record, I really don’t care either way but the BBC are conducting an investigation at time of posting (11 March) so if you wish to sign the petition supporting Jeremy Clarkson please click the link below.
