"Jeremy Clarkson's just been fired! It's on Twitter!" Oh, well then it must be true, just like Katy Perry and Russell Brand's imminent divorce (as it turns out, they're not splitting, instead they're truly hammering in the nail on their relationship by gettin matching tattoos - cause it worked so well for other such unions, like Peaches Geldof and Max Drummy, and Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, and Katie Price and Leandro Penna, and Michael Lohan and Kate Major).
Nay, upon further inspection, Jeremy Clarkson said some sh*t and now people are just calling for him to be fired. Which never happens. Much. Well, not since Top Gear's fffaaaarrring script writers were massively complimentary to Mexicans everywhere.
This time around, Jeremy Clarkson spoke so much skitter that David Cameron is now gasbagging about him on This Morning, mumbling "It was obviously a silly thing to say and I am sure he didn't mean that. I didn't see the remark but I'm sure... it's a silly thing to say."
Sorry, what did Clarkson say? Well, we went on The One Show and said the following regarding the striking public sector workers in the UK: "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... I would take them outside and execute them in front of their families."
The Sun reports: "Union giant Unison was today seeking legal advice over his remarks and was considering referring the matter to COPS. It also called on the BBC to sack him."
Good luck with that.
