Jeremy Clarkson is crass, insensitive and offensive at the best of times. A good example of an inadequate bully, and normally what he says washes over me, as he is so insignificant.
But his comments regarding Gordon Brown whom he describes as “a one eyed Scottish idiot”, can’t be left to stand without reply.
For those of us who have suffered the catastrophe of sight loss to have the disability directly compared to mental problems just shows the calibre of the man.
I come across this on a regular basis. People see the glasses and the dog and proceed to treat you as if you are a five year old, and Clarkson’s comments just re enforce this belief that if you have a physical disability, then you must be a bit lacking upstairs.
If the lamentable Carole Thatcher can be scaked by the BBC for a remark made in the semi private green room, where is the logic regarding Clarkson?
