Jeremy Clarkson has hit out at the BBC’s increasingly metropolitan, lefty London bend, describing it as “politically correct” and “up itself”.
In an interview with the Radio Times, he says: “If I ran the BBC, it would be better. I’d make programmes for everybody, not just seven people in Islington.”
Clarkson pointed out how: “It’s become so up itself, suffocating the life out of everything with its nonsense need to be politically correct.”
And when it comes to gender on telly at the Beeb, he pointed out how: “Men now just don’t get jobs (at the BBC) at all.
“Honestly, poor old Nick Robinson going for an interview for Question Time. What a waste of petrol that was. No chance he’s going to get it.
“Anyone who has got a scrotum, forget it.”
The BBC has faced criticism recently from pro-Brexit MPs unhappy with the broadcaster describing a No Deal Brexit as ‘crashing out’ and going over a ‘cliff edge’.
