Why Same Difference Hopes The BBC Will Sack Jeremy Clarkson Today

March 25, 2015

Readers, Jeremy Clarkson is reportedly expected to be sacked by the BBC today.

Same Difference has been campaigning for his sacking for years.

Why?

Perhaps because of his unneccessary reference to Gordon Brown’s partial eyesight.

Perhaps because of his description of a Ferrari as having ‘special needs.’

Or perhaps because of his ‘Elephant Man’   jibe?

The simple fact is this- we here at Same Difference have spotted and highlighted Clarkson’s disablist comments for a long, long time. But the BBC barely blinked- until now.

Even now, he is not facing the sack for a disablist comment. However, we here at Same Difference believe that the BBC without Jeremy Clarkson in it will be a much less disablist place.

So we hope for his sacking today- whatever the reason, it will be a significant victory in the fight against disablism.

    He is a hero to millions.Attacking him won’t do you any good. And where’s your sense of humour?

    He is only a t.v. personality, why anyone cares about what he says or does or about whether he gets sacked or not is beyond me. Now David Cameron and Ian Duncan Smith they are a different type of creature entirely. They are both responsible for the deaths of thousands of disabled and vulnerable people since they came into power. We should all campaign to have these two mass murderers arrested.

    the many that support Clarkson are in the majority and all it shows is that the uk is a very sick and selfish place to live and David Cameron being a good friend is no surprise

    the people of the uk need to wake up and get rid of these types of people from ever being on the tv in the first place and for voting the likes of Cameron into power is the dumbest thing you could do after all you wouldn’t vote for one of the middle eastern tyrants into power would you so what the hell is david cameron doing in power it makes no sense or maybe the public are just selfish and they like inflicting pain on others ?

    “He needs to grow up” Jeremy Clarkson?

    I often hear people, usually wives, girlfriends and mother-in-laws, says “he needs to grow up” referring to the laddish behaviour of a husband or boyfriend. Immature Teenage boys ‘laddish’ behaviour is is a product of their hormones fuelled by action movies, video games and social media. Thankfully most mature and become useful citizens, the odd few don’t. They grow up to be football fans/hooligans, racists, wife beaters, gay bashers and dare I say terrorists.

    Jeremy Clarkson did grow up but was smart enough to cash in as the Lads Lad. The derogatory and racist remarks and the following ‘tongue in cheek’ apologies only endear him to his loyal followers. They know that this is necessary to placate the PC ‘bleeding heart liberals’ who are out to ruin their way of life. Jeremy obviously believed himself to be untouchable. In the real world anyone punching another employee would be fired ON THE SPOT. How many of his loyal followers have longed to likewise.

    Perhaps, the fact that a petition for Jeremy’s reinstatement had a million signatures means the ‘few’ are becoming the ‘many’.

    Are we living in a world where the nasty are in the ascendancy?
