NAGTRW REQUEST POLICE INVESTIGATION INTO JEREMY CLARKSON ANTI GYPSY COMMENTS #antigypsyism

NAGTRW can conform that following comments made by Jeremy Clarkson in regard to Gypsies a report has been made to Police urging them to investigate Clarkson for racist, anti Gypsy comments made on Amazon Primes “The Grand Tour”.

During the broadcast Clarkson said ” we are going to be like Gypsies only the cars we drive are going to be insured’.

NAGTRW request to Police states ,

“Mr Clarkson is fully aware that previous comments that he has made before he was fired from Top Gear have caused a great deal of offence to the Gypsy & Traveller Community – he appears hell bent of causing further offence and this comment is a deliberate act of doing just that. Mr Clarkson is using Amazon Prime as a means of delivering to the public comments that cause offence and alarm to the Gypsy & Traveller community. He is fully aware of what he is doing. Mr Clarkson seems to be motivated by a distain for Gypsy and Traveller and people and a determination to further his career and therefore make money from publicly ridiculing, vilifying and demonising Gypsy and Traveller people in the name of ‘entertainment’

The report continues ..

“Please do not fob this incident off as an ‘incident’ and not a crime – this commentry by clarkson has potential for great harm and he knows this – he even brags that he has more freedom regarding what he can get away with saying since he has moved online. The internet is a PUBLIC SPACE and while Amazon may well give him more leeway – this is still a deliberate verbal attack on Gypsy and Traveller people . We would urge Police and CPS to explore every avenue in regard to this man”

    1. Sadly Christina that is not what Mr Clarkson was driving at [no punn intended]
      I would just like firstly to say I am not happy with the terms ‘species of people’ – there is only one ‘species’ i.e. human beings – and under that umbrella there are many races of people. Many Gypsies and Travellers do indeed lead a nomadic life, although it is getting increasingly difficult to do so even though nomadism is part of our cultural way of life – which is entirely different to a ‘lifestyle choice’
      Gypsies and Travellers are an Ethnic people who Mr Clarkson and Co feel it perfectly acceptable to attack[more than one occassion] by demonsing, vilifying and humiliating in the name of ‘entertainment’ this would not be tolerated were it any other race or ethnic minority group and quite rightly so, and it should not be tolerated when it is aimed at Gypsies and Travellers who are already very marginalised.
      The man is disgrace

  1. Jeremy Clarkson has more status as a well-known celebrity than many other people who might say similar things. Therefore, he can do more damage through his elevated status because his message will reach more people, and for some, carry more influence.

  2. Exactly Neil – yet he remains untouchable – no doubt his dubious celebrity status has a bearing on that.
    Humberside Police certainly are determined not to take this on as we was told by an Officer that it was ‘not in the public interest’ – and there we were thinking the CPS made that decision – of course the CPS can only decide on matters IF they are given a file, but it appears yet again that officers are taking it upon themselves to make that decision themselves – not so much then a legal system as a Police state.
