'Eco Suffragettes' dump manure on Jeremy Clarkson's Lawn
The BBC petrolhead Jeremy Clarkson finds a big smelly surprise on his front lawn.
The cyclists will have an absolute field day with this one, they have only just recovered from the BBC Jame Martin Celebrity Chef debacle.
Climate change cannot be ignored, Jeremy, and by the way, when are you going to quit Top Gear?
"Horse manure has been dumped on the front lawn of Jeremy Clarkson's house by climate campaigners.
They have been protesting against the TV presenter's views on global warming.
Activists from environmental group Climate Rush said they had targeted the Top Gear presenter for his "blasé attitude to climate change".
The seven female protesters, dressed as suffragettes, made the stop outside Clarkson's home in Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire as part of a month-long awareness campaign.
Just who are Climate Rush?
"Climate Rush is inspired by the actions of the Suffragettes 100 years ago, who showed that peaceful civil disobedience could inspire positive change. We are a diverse group of women and men who are determined to raise awareness of the biggest threat facing humanity today - that of Climate Change. Our government acknowledges the huge problems we face from Climate Change, but carries on with business as usual. We demand DEEDS NOT WORDS because individual choice alone cannot curb CO2 emissions if we are to stop runaway global warming."
Some of Clarkson's anti green comments:
On the environment, Clarkson is not sympathetic to the green agenda. He once said: "I do have a disregard for the environment. I think the world can look after itself and we should enjoy it as best as we can". He has little respect for groups such as Greenpeace, and believes that the "eco-mentalists" are a by-product of the "old trade unionists and CND lesbians" that hadn't gone away but merely found a new cause. Clarkson is not however a climate change denier, commenting on the effects of global warming - "let's just stop and think for a moment what the consequences might be. Switzerland loses its skiing resorts? The beach in Miami is washed away? North Carolina gets knocked over by a hurricane? Anything bothering you yet?". He does not, however, believe that man is responsible for global warming."
And what did Jeremy Clarkson say?
"Clarkson was not available for comment."
One thing I thought was interesting whilst researching this post, according to Wiki he was expelled from school:-
"By his own account, he was expelled from Repton School for "drinking, smoking and generally making a nuisance of himself."
Do the BBC bother to take any references? If they do, do they check them out? What kind of 'pantomine'
HR' do they have at the BBC? I thought the BBC was supposed to be 'quality'. Just now many employees do they employ who have been expelled from school?
