“Britain is a nation of 62 million complete and utter bastards”, according to Jeremy Clarkson. The Mirror reports that he does not have a high opinion of his countrymen, the British.
The Top Gear presenter also says that Brits invented torture and slavery and sent the White Russians to be slaughtered by Stalin.
Jeremy Clarkson has branded the whole country “complete and utter bastards” after Twitter trolls mocked him over the death of his dog.
During the outspoken presenter’s astonishing rant in Top Gear magazine, Clarkson said that Brits invented torture and slavery and sent the White Russians to be slaughtered by Stalin.
He wrote: “A few moments ago , my dog died, and, as an experiment, I announced the fact on Twitter.
“Now, everyone must have known that when a family pet is put down, the family in question is bound to be upset.
“So you’d expect a bit of sympathy. And, in America, that’s what you’d get.
“Not in Britain, though. Moments after I posted my Tweet, a man called Ryan Paisey asked: “How does she smell?”
Clarkson’s latest outburst comes after he revealed he suffered a ‘tirade of abuse’ within minutes of Tweeting about the death of his black Labrador Whoopi.
He added: “Britain is a nation of 62 million complete and utter bastards. We are the country that invented the concentration camp, and international slavery.
“Hanging, drawing, quartering: that was us too. And who was it that sent the White Russians home to be slaughtered by Stalin? Yup. Us.
“Outwardly, we hated communist Russia; inwardly, it’s what 95 per cent of the country wants .
“Bankers, Estate Agents, Politicians, Journalists. Anyone in a suit is basically evil and must, after they’ve been sacked, go to prison.
“Anyone in a donkey jacket? They’re basically good and must have a plasma television immediately.”
Clarkson is known for being outspoken.
In November 30 last year, on the evening of Britain’s biggest public sector strikes for 30 years, Clarkson said that he would take the striking workers outside and “execute them in front of their families”.
Clarkson was forced to apologise and the regulator launched an investigation after his remark, made on The One Show, sparked around 31,700 complaints and led to condemnation from union leaders and politicians, with Prime Minister David Cameron branding the TV star’s statement “silly”.
However, Ofcom later ruled that his comments did not breach broadcasting rules.
