Jeremy Clarkson says social media ‘can be really dangerous’
Jeremy Clarkson’s, 60, isn’t one for keeping what’s on his mind to himself, so naturally he’s revealed his fury in response to some journalist questions at Boris Johnson’s Covid press conferences. The Grand Tour star became concerned that journalists aren’t asking the questions the public need to know, and it really riles his feathers to the point of no return.
I get so angry, it makes my teeth itch
Venting his frustrations in his column for The Sun, it was clear the third lockdown was getting to the TV presenter.
He penned: “Every time there’s a coronavirus press conference, Boris, the talking turtle and that other bloke – the James May of the operation – make their statements then ask political journalists for questions.
“So do they ask if anyone who’s been vaccinated has gone on to catch the disease?” he questioned sarcastically.
“Or do they ask if there’s any truth to German reports that the Oxford jab only works on eight per cent of the over-65s?”

Jeremy blasted those lucky enough to get air-time with the PM on the matter, and gave a few hypothetical examples to really mock the situation.
“No. Instead, what we get is: “So, Prime Minister. Now that you’ve murdered 100,000 people by dithering, will you cut your own head off?” he mimicked.
“There’s no point to a question like this because Boris is never going to say, ‘Yes. It’s all my fault. I had some bat for supper and now everyone is dead.'”
He added: “I get so angry, it makes my teeth itch.”
Jeremy believes that in yers to come, once Covid is a thing of the past, “many inquiries will be held” to examine what went wrong so the UK can be better prepared if anything like this ever happens again.
But in the meantime, he urged journalists to ask questions which are “relevant” now.
Elsewhere, Jeremy shared a rare insight into his home life, as he admitted he often gets overruled by his girlfriend Lisa Hogan, and her 18-year-old daughter, Ali.
The former Top Gear presenter made the admission while discussing reports that Nicola Sturgeon wants to hold another vote to make Scotland a self-rule country by Christmas – an acta which allows a country, part of a country, or a nation to choose its own government and control its own activities.
However, the ITV star insisted that this would not work in his own house, as the trio “cannot even agree on what to have for supper”.
He divulged: “What about self-rule in my own house? Ha.

“That definitely wouldn’t work, because although there are only three of us here, we cannot even agree on what to have for supper.
“Last night the two others formed themselves into a government, poured bird food into a frying pan and ate that, while deciding whether to watch a ‘hilarious’ Hollywood blockbuster about some divorced middle-aged idiot who’s trying to pick up young women, or something with a dead labrador in it.”
Jeremy went on to describe his home life with Lisa and Ali as a “mad and gluten-free world”.
He added: “It’s like living in a mad and gluten-free world of primary coloured romcoms and yoga — and it’s terrible.
“I’d rather Derek Hatton [British Politician] were in charge.”
He continued: “Recently, I started to think that, actually, I wanted to take self-rule to its ultimate conclusion and declare myself an independent state.
“But I’m not sure that even this would work, as my stomach wants a chocolate biscuit and my heart really doesn’t, while my head wants another glass of wine, but my liver is very prissy and woke on the matter.
“I’m therefore a one-man war zone,” he quipped in his latest column for The Sunday Times.
