Matthew Steeples suggests Rupert Murdoch might provide the key to the next chapter in Jeremy Clarkson’s turbulent life
I spotted someone looking remarkably like Rupert Murdoch arriving in Chelsea Harbour in a Bentley last week. The purpose of his visit might now be easily explained: Could this media mogul have been visiting Rebekah Brooks with a view to recruiting her friend Jeremy Clarkson?
Wednesday’s announcement by the BBC that they will not renew Clarkson’s Top Gear contract was rightly met with derision on Twitter. This great man is the biggest loss yet to a corporation that frankly doesn’t deserve to be funded by licence fee payers a moment longer.
Somewhat curiously, Rupert Murdoch himself took to Twitter on Tuesday to share his views about the matter. He commented:
“How stupid can BBC be in firing Jeremy Clarkson? Funny man with great expertise and huge following”.
Jeremy Clarkson’s unjust sacking will lead to only one thing: This national treasure will earn more elsewhere and he’ll take viewers with him wherever he goes. The BBC should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves and no doubt today the only person celebrating will be Rupert Murdoch.
