Jeremy Clarkson, that champion of all things petrol, the man who … well, you know who he is.
The man who once described global warming as “bonkers — a complete fairy story”, yes THAT Jeremy Clarkson, appeared on Radio 5 Live last week.
Talking about the credit crunch, he said, “The politicians know just how catastrophic it is going to be, and just think well there’s nothing we can do so we’re just going to not bother telling them… fiddle around, drop the interest [rate]… I believe we are heading toward The End of Days, economically speaking, and that you’d better get yourself an allotment (personally).”
“I just talked to a couple of bankers who just say ‘It’s so bad’…. [Warren] Buffet the other day said ‘We’re not even in it yet…You know, we haven’t even started the problems’.”
