Who’s daft enough to give credibility to Clarkson over Covid-19?

Jeremy Clarkson: he’s clueless, but that doesn’t stop him from talking.

This Writer has recently been watching – and enjoying immensely – a TV offering called Clarkson’s Farm.

It chronicles the efforts of tabloid TV petrolhead Jeremy Clarkson as he grapples with running his farm in the Cotswolds.

It is informative, as it shows the difficulties facing farmers recently, as they’ve had to grapple with the weather, Covid-19, Brexit and the mountain of regulations and paperwork that is now a part of their everyday life.

But here’s the thing: We learn about them because of all the things that Clarkson does wrong.

He presents himself as a middle-aged, set-in-his-ways, know-nothing who coasts through life from one bad idea to another – and never understands why they are so bad or why his friends and colleagues get so angry with him about them.

And that brings me to his current pronouncements about Covid-19:

Now Jeremy Clarkson has opened himself up to more anger after he criticised “those communists at Sage” preventing opening up because, he argues, “if you die, you die.”

“I think the politicians should sometimes tell those communists at Sage to get back in their box. Let’s just all go through life with our fingers crossed and a smile on our face.

That is exactly the attitude that has made Clarkson’s Farm entertaining – but here it would be dangerous, if anybody believes him.

He has no evidence to support his claim that the SAGE scientists are Communists, nor does he put up any explanation of why that would make any difference to their factual findings.

Going through life “with our fingers crossed” might be fine for Clarkson, but some of us take it a little more seriously – and we don’t have the safety nets afforded to a super-rich television celebrity.

Still, if the UK did adopt his devil-may-care attitude, it is comforting that Clarkson would be putting himself in the firing line.

In Clarkson’s Farm, he’s seen discussing Covid-19 with his helper Caleb.

He confesses that he has smoked three quarters of a million cigarettes and has scarring on his lungs from pneumonia, so if he were to catch the virus…

“You’re f***ed,” said Caleb.

Ah, but that was back in 2020, before the vaccine. Has Clarkson had it?

If so, perhaps he’s banking on other people dying instead of him. And that would just be nasty.

    You have a stronger stomach than I, watching anything that features this appalling excuse for a human being. The old expression “I would rather have my teeth pulled without anaesthetic” comes to mind!

    You do realise that Clarkson is an entertainer does things and makes remarks just to wind folks up and get more free publicity?
