Oh, the humanity! Owen Jones and stuff . . .

Ah, now - hang on; at least Clarkson apprenticed with the Rotherham Advertiser and is a "trained journalist" and is generally regarded as a journalist, at least in motoring terms.


Is Clarkson still employed as a journalist with the Rotherham Advertiser or is he employed as a writer of opinion pieces for the Sunday Times in the same way that Jones is employed as a writer of opinion pieces for the Guardian?

Who cares? At least Clarkson can legitimately claim to be a journalist.

Does it matter? I think he's a knob, but at least he's done the basics. Jones can't even cover that.
 
I’d do him.

Thats not saying much, you'd do anyone for half a cider and a packet of crisps.

If you do get the opportunity though, please repeatedly kidney punch him.
 
Jones claims no such thing. He's always stated that he's a left winger and a socialist.

He has even stated that he is far left - and that far left is a good thing .

Which explains his refusal to acknowledge that its every bit as odious as the far right.

That does put him above several individuals I know who insist they arent far left or even - but retransmit every pro Corbyn and anti Tory meme the come accross - excuse antifa and others - whilst blaming capitalism for socialisms crimes.


Much as I loathe Owen - I have more respect for someone who failng to see something for what it is pushes it - than I do people who seek to excuse it and yet promote it under another guise.

When Clarkson wants t be a journalist, as opposed to a sensationalist, he is very good.
His 'real' motoring stuff from early days, pre top gear fame, was excellent.
And he still throws out an occasional car review, or traffic-related piece, which is well thought out, informative, and balanced.
 
I think there must be a laboratory somewhere, and when a Tatchell or a Thunberg or Jones are required they just program them, unplug them and point them towards the nearest Guardian reporter.

It‘s a bit simpler than that. Someone leaves the lid off the clinical waste bin and a bit of sunlight and oxygen gets in.

Voila! Cogent political thought from left of spectrum*

*Other spectrums are also involved.

He has also made some excellent documentaries.

I feel a bit sad for Jones, he tries so desperately to be the cool kid, down with the yooth who wants to fit in, switching allegiances and far left causes & POV like the wind but ultimately he is a tosser despised by all sides.
