Clarkson on striking unionists

Jeremy Clarkson is irreverent, but he probably encapsulates the way most people in Britain feel about striking unionists:

Top Gear frontman Jeremy Clarkson has sparked outrage after using a live TV interview to call for Britain’s striking public sector workers to be shot in front of their families.

In an appearance on BBC’s The One Show, the 51-year-old presenter and columnist condemned the two million workers on strike over the British Government slashing their pensions.

“I would have them all shot,” he said.

“I would take them outside and execute them in front of their families. I mean how dare they go on strike when they have these gilt-edged pensions that have to be guaranteed while the rest of us have to work for a living.”

I think the unions over there will find it surprising most people don’t support them.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
