I've been waiting for someone in the One Percent to speak honestly of the way they would solve the present civil unrest. This is the comment by Jeremy Clarkson, host of the BBC hit series Top Gear. This is the link; http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/dec/01/jeremy-clarkson-one-show-strike?intcmp=239
and this is the text of the interview;
Matt Baker: Now, at the end of a day where Britain has seen some of its biggest strikes, what we need is someone calm and level-headed.
Alex Jones: Yep, a guest with balanced, uncontroversial opinions, who makes great effort not to offend.
Matt Baker: And we've got Jeremy Clarkson!
Jeremy Clarkson: Thank you very much.
Matt Baker: So Jeremy, schools, hospitals, airports, even driving tests have been affected. Do you the strikes are a good idea?
Jeremy Clarkson: It's been fantastic. Seriously, never had … London today has just been empty. Everybody stayed at home, you could whizz about, your restaurants were empty.
Alex Jones: The traffic actually has been very good today.
Jeremy Clarkson: Very light. Now airports, you know, people streaming through with no problems at all and it's also like being back in the 70s, it makes me feel at home somehow.
Alex Jones: Do you know anybody who …
Matt Baker: [interrupts – inaduiable] – being on strike today?
Jeremy Clarkson: What, in public service? Of course I don't. No, absolutely. We have to balance it though, don't we because this is the BBC.
Alex Jones and Matt Baker: Exactly.
Jeremy Clarkson: Frankly, I'd have them all shot!
Jeremy Clarkson: I would take them outside and execute them in front of their families. I mean how dare they go on strike when they've got these gilt-edged pensions that are going to be guaranteed while the rest of us have to work for a living?
Matt Baker: Well, on that note of balancing an opinion of course those are Jeremy's views.
Jeremy Clarkson: I just … ! I was just giving two views for you!
Alex Jones: Well, we will be talking to Jeremy more later.
