Jeremy Clarkson vows BBC is ‘worth saving’ despite ‘pretty poor value’ licence fee

Jeremy said: “When I worked there, I was told to take down a poster of Mrs Thatcher because it was ‘offensive’ and once, I was not allowed into the 5 Live studios because I was carrying a copy of The Spectator which, said the producer, was an ‘extremist publication’.

He went on: “Comedy? You mean like Harry and Paul and Fawlty Towers? Nah. 

“They can’t broadcast anything funny any more because there are too many rules.

“And for Saturday evening entertainment shows, they have to guess what the ordinary people of Britain want because when you are living in the TV executive heartland of Camden, you have no idea what an ordinary person even looks like.”
