Jeremy Clarkson attacks democracy

    I wonder what it is that this gool finds so terrifying about Biden. Trump is the one he should have been terrified of.

    Emmanual Macron is a good President and is neither of the words he said also Micheal D Higgens but sure Jeremy Clarkson probably does not know who he is.

    He is right about the other two do but neither of them are as bad as Putin but then Russia is not a Democracy so I understand why the tool never mentioned him.

    I am surprised he did not mention the Ukrainian President maybe because he is a great and brave man. Probably go down as one of the best Presidents of any country in the World and certainly one of the bravest.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

    Sounds exact same taught process, as nearly every liberial said post Brexit referendum,

    A worryingly large amount of people across spectrum,dispise democracy,if it geos against their views

    The fact he would choose joe biden as a reason to justify monarchy is a brain-fart nearly as large as clarksons ego

    Jeremy and a few others who think like him don't really get what democracy is... they only understand their idea of what politics should be.

    Considering the popularity of the absolute scutter that he produces for television he might have a point here..

    Just wait until the TikTok generation get to vote.

    I'd be happy to go back to a monarchy taking over politics or even a benign dictatorship like some of the Gulf states. Not an authoritarian one like the Biden admin.

    He is harldy, at this stage of his life, angling to become one of those 'tells it like it is' sh!t-merchants?

    No one else is solving the problems, so it's easy to see why people are willing to give someone else a go.

    OP would you be getting all hot and bothered if Sean Moncrieff or Oliver Callan wrote an article 'attacking democracy'? Because that would be an approximate Irish equivalent....

    Never had much time for him since he clocked Oisin Tymon over missing his dinner

    All processes of power, democratic or not, are based on how much finance you have to persuade people to adopt your views and plans. Simple as that.

    Righteous Television Events is an ace broadcasting organisation; we’ll not be hearing counter opinion, d’jya hear me?

    When you look at the absolute state of the present and last president's of the supposed greatest country in the world America you do indeed begin to question democracy in it's present form. The UK also to a very large degree.

    I wasn’t aware I was hot and bothered. But I defer to your psychic abilities. To answer your questions: Clarkson has much greater audience in a leading European power already struggling with issues of rule of law, judicial independence, executive supremacy, media manipulation and toxic hard right ideology. I’m quite overcome now and must lie down with a damp cloth on my face.

    Okay okay 'hot and bothered' is (attempted) humorous exxageration. But it's a category error to treat anything a guy whose stock in trade is amusing car reviews says about politics any way seriously. If Jimmy Carr or Sacha Baron Cohen said it was better not to give people a say in the running of the country would you cite that as part of "a growing hard right trend to seek to make democracy more exclusionary."
