Re: Jeremy Clarkson loves the 159
Jeremy Clarkson is somewhat of an anti-hero. He has some pretty extreme views on many subjects, however he is at least gutsy enough to share them. It is a pity that so many people in this day and age are so repressed in their opinions by political do-gooders that these views simmer and become more and more extreme.
A point of view I feel was nicely shown by a recent conversation I was part of in a pub in Leicester. For those who do not know, it is predicted by previous 2 census reports and current school population reports that Leicester will very soon become the first British city in which the group described as White British will become a minority. In the company I was in, this view, when aired by a friend, was quietened down on the ground that "We're not allowed to talk about it"
On further questioning it would appear that many people are scared that such opinions would attract accusations of Religious/Racial hatred. It was nothing to do with hatred, just conversation.
I therefore question the view that Clarkson, however far off the currently accepted, politically correct, left wing ethos he may be, should represent a figure to be critisised for his willingness to air his views.
He has his personal views, which he may share. I have my personal views, which I choose not to share, and many others make their own decisions. Your right to a voice if you choose to use it is what should make Britain a free and fair society. It is a shame that this is being eroded and replaced with a culture of fear to express anything outside of the current political leaderships doctrine.
