Must not joke about sex scandals

He's well known as a bit of a motormouth, but Jeremy Clarkson came under scrutiny this week after he made a tasteless joke about the Stuart Hall sex scandal.

The Top Gear host took to his official Twitter page to make the comments. He wrote: 'Can I just say that I've worked at the BBC for 24 years and in all that time no-one has ever tried to put his finger in my bottom.'

Ex-BBC football commentator Stuart Hall admitted 12 indecent assaults on girls aged nine to 17 over 18 years last week and was labelled an 'opportunistic predator.'

Talking to the Daily Star, Peter Saunders, of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, said: 'Jeremy Clarkson is well known for coming out with real nonsense like this.

'I don't think he realises the seriousness of the issue he is making fun of.

Well, it's quite right to say this is a very serious issue. But people shouldn't get all bent out of shape over it either. "Sensitivity" is causing us to lose our free speech.

Watch as the PC mob recreate the Spanish Inquisition. There is no room for satire in the modern UK.

Not satire, nor rational thinking, nor commonsense. Those things have been replaced by an extreme form of political correctness.
