Default Top Gear's Clarkson on immigration, EU, and the BNP

WHEN the British National Party win a handful of seats at the European
elections, everyone with frizzy hair and comfortable shoes will run
around blaming mainstream politicians for resurfacing their moats on
the taxpayer. Hmm. That's like Ronald McDonald blaming his 42in waist
on genetics.

The main reason why the BNP will do well is because the main parties
seem to have completely lost touch with what their supporters actually
want out of life. We have the Conservatives dreaming up policies to
suit whatever mood happens to be prevailing at the time, when all
their voters want is for the economy to be mended. So that taxes can
be cut. And then cut again.

And then we have the fools and madmen in the Labour Party. Does Gordon
Brown, for instance, think that in the clubs of South Yorkshire, where
I grew up, people want a smoking ban? Does he believe that White Van
Man sits down to watch Top Gear and thinks: "You know, this would be a
whole lot better if Richard Hammond had a vagina"? Does he think, even
for a small moment, that the people who put a cross in his box give
even a small toss about "the environment"? Or that the foundry worker
wants to finish his shift and "drink responsibly"?

And then there's the question of immigration. Of course, I can quite
understand why the champagne socialists are worried about the plight
of poor Ndjama. His village has been sacked by rebels, he has nowhere
to live and nothing to eat. Of course they would want him to have a
home in Britain. Fundamentally, they are good people with big hearts.
But mostly they want Ndjama to come here because when he does, he's
not going to be living in their street. So, Ndjama will go and live in
someone else's street and that person will be quite cross. Especially
when he goes to work one day and finds Ndjama at the wheel of his
forklift truck.

The Labour Party say that immigration is good for Britain and morally
the right policy to pursue. This may be so. But those who put them in
power, emphatically, do not think this way. We are all tribal. We like
being in a group and we distrust outsiders. We have our family unit,
our bunch of friends, the town where we live, the football club we
support, and, especially if we are Scottish, the country of which we
are proud. The big-hearted, liberal-thinking chaps and chapesses who
advise Brown and his gang of fiddlers may think this is backward and
pre-historic. They think tribalism could even be dangerous. And again,
they may be right. But you wouldn't allow Man United's fans to sit
among the Barca boys in a stadium because it would end in a fight.

And if you let half of Africa come to Britain - no matter how morally
correct this may be - you're going to wind people up and gift the BNP
your seat. Then we'll see how tolerant these champagne socialists are.
When they go to work and find themselves sitting next to a Nazi.

How presumptive to claim what the voters want, and to couch it in the
tired old Thatcherite dogma of lower taxes for the wealthy.

As is usually the case, I find that Clarkson expresses himself amusingly,
even if some of his assertions are slightly innaccurate. On the whole
though, I find little to disagree with in this article. He seems to draw on
his S Yorks background quite often, almost using it as 'street cred'. This
is fair enough because he was a local newspaper reporter so I expect he did
see real life, but his own family were very well off. Proof of this is that
a child in a working class area who had been given a puffy name like Jeremy
would not survive the infants' school. Actually, Jez was brought up in
Burghwallis, one of the most exclusive areas in S Yorks.

Just trolling along, singing a song...
Quite humorous, but flawed
I feel a plonk coming on.

believe me you don't want to.
