Auntie Suffers Sense of Humour Failure
Unsurprisingly I see that Nanny's best chum, Auntie, suffered a major sense of humour failure over Jeremy Clarkson's comments on "The One Show" in which he said that he would have public sector strikers shot.
Auntie issued an apology, and has withdrawn the show from the BBCi Player.
Are we not allowed to watch the show and make our own minds up?
Never mind, here is the clip (out of context), before judging it you should also be aware that he prefaced the comments by asserting that he liked the strikers, as the industrial action meant there was no traffic on the roads.
He then went on to say that he had to be balanced as he worked for Auntie, at which point he talked about having them shot.
Could it be that he was having a dig at Auntie's pc attitude as much as at the strikers?
Seemingly Unison (according to Auntie) is "to take urgent legal advice over "appalling" comments made by TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson".
Oh by the way, where was Unison when Ken Livingstone suggested that George Osborne should be hanged?
Auntie now reports the following quote from Jeremy Clarkson:
"I didn’t for a moment intend these remarks to be taken seriously – as I believe is clear if they’re seen in context.
If the BBC and I have caused any offence, I’m quite happy to apologise for it alongside them."
