The Grand Tour star, Jeremy Clarkson, never one to mince words, has unleashed his fiery perspective on the British Conservative Party, albeit with a twist. Known for his candid remarks, he has expressed a rather unexpected stance on the next general election.
Clarkson, best known for his Clarkson’s Farm series, previously hosted Top Gear, and presenting ITVs Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, voiced a surprising sentiment in his recent column for The Sunday Times. He thinks it would “serve the Conservative’s right” to have to deal with the “mess” they have created. He wrote:
“They know the game’s up. They know they will lose the next election and all of their problems will become Sir Starmer’s problems.
“This means they are going to spend the next two years merrily chucking billions of our pounds into pie-in-the-sky projects that they know will never, in a month of Sundays, ever work.
“And then they’ll simply pass the unholy, fraudulent mess they’ve created on to the Labour Party and skip off into the sunset, knowing they will never have to take responsibility for it.
“For this reason, I sincerely hope the Tories win. It’d serve them right.”
Clarkson sharpened his critique by diving into specific government initiatives, especially the contentious HS2 railway project. Despite its ambitious intent, this venture, requiring the construction of over 500 bridges, has faced stern scepticism. Clarkson explained:
“This is Britain. We can’t do that sort of thing any more.
“Look at Hammersmith Bridge in London. That went a bit wobbly a few years ago and the powers-that-be simply shut it to cars indefinitely.
“So if we can’t mend one bridge in London, how can we be expected to build 500 new ones in the middle of nowhere? It obviously isn’t going to happen.”
