The BBC has come in for a lot of flak over bias, seemingly breeding reporters who consciously or unconsciously only cover stories to promote their own careers, avoiding base level corruption and siding with the establishment. Of course, would you risk challenging the facts, if it meant losing promotion prospects, or a Gong?





Wow! Open mouth and insert foot, or what. Jeremy Clarkson, self declared petrol head, thus alleged supporter of dependency on oil and fossil fuel motoring, but not of course single handedly responsible for climate change, though perhaps a teensy-weensy bit to blame for EVs being given a back seat on Top Gear for so long - as another example of preferential treatment - perhaps! But for sure, he's pushed the boat out in his unvarnished hatred of Meghan, in such a way as might be considered by some to be a malicious communication. Perhaps? That was when this article was first published.


Since then, (and only a few days later) Sky News reported that the Sun newspaper had printed an apology 23-12-2022.








The Sun newspaper has said it regrets publishing a column by Jeremy Clarkson about the Duchess of Sussex.

His column, which was published on Sunday, said he was "dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while crowds chant, 'Shame!' and throw lumps of excrement at her".

The remarks sparked a huge backlash, with Clarkson's daughter Emily, as well as many others, speaking out against him.

The column became the most complained about ever, with the Independent Press Standards Organisation receiving more than 20,800 complaints as of 5pm on Tuesday.

The article has since been removed from The Sun's website at Clarkson's request.


The newspaper said in a statement: "In last Saturday's Sun, Jeremy Clarkson wrote a comment article about the Duchess of Sussex.

"It provoked a strong response and led to a large number of complaints to IPSO, the independent press regulator.

"In a tweet earlier this week, Jeremy said he had made a 'clumsy reference to a scene in Game of Thrones', which had 'gone down badly with a great many people' and he was 'horrified to have caused so much hurt'.

"He also said he will be more careful in future. [What does that mean? Does that mean he will still carry those beliefs and try to conceal them? In which case, should he be a public figure on TV/]

"Columnists' opinions are their own, but as a publisher, we realise that with free expression comes responsibility.

"The article has been removed from our website and archives.

"The Sun has a proud history of campaigning, from Help for Heroes to Jabs Army and Who Cares Wins, and over 50 years of working in partnership with charities, our campaigns have helped change Britain for the better.


Key revelations from final episodes of Harry and Meghan

"Working with our readers, The Sun has helped to bring about new legislation on domestic abuse, provided beds in refuges, closed harmful loopholes in the law and empowered survivors of abuse to come forward and seek help.

"We will continue to campaign for good causes on behalf of our readers in 2023."


The column, in which Clarkson said he "hated" Meghan, came on the back of the couple's highly anticipated Netflix documentary series.

The Sussexes opened up about their experiences in the "institution" and the difficulties they faced due to negative media coverage.

Clarkson then used his column to describe his frustration at the duchess.

More than 60 MPs wrote to the editor of the newspaper condemning the piece "in the strongest terms".

The letter put forward by Conservative MP Caroline Nokes demanded that the publication take action against Clarkson.

It said the former Top Gear presenter's "hateful" article about Meghan Markle had contributed to an "unacceptable climate of hatred and violence".

A senior ITV executive said his comments were "awful" but Clarkson will continue as host of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? "at the moment".




More than 60 Members of Parliament (MPs) have written to the editor of The Sun to condemn "in the strongest terms" an article by Jeremy Clarkson about the Duchess of Sussex, where he said she should "parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain".

The letter put forward by Conservative MP Caroline Nokes demanded that the publication take action against Clarkson.

His column, which was published on Sunday, said he was "dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while crowds chant, 'Shame!' and throw lumps of excrement at her".

The remarks were met were backlash, with Clarkson's daughter Emily, as well as many others, speaking out against him.

The Sun has since withdrawn the column.









Clarkson responded to the backlash with a statement, in which he pleaded to be more careful in the future.

However, this has been criticised for not including an apology.

In the letter addressed to The Sun's editor, Victoria Newton, Ms Nokes and other MPs demanded that the newspaper take action against the presenter.

'Enough is enough'

"We are horrified at the recent article by Jeremy Clarkson in your publication. As parliamentarians of every persuasion, we condemn in the strongest terms the violent misogynistic language against the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle," the letter read.

"This sort of language has no place in our country, and it is unacceptable that it was allowed to be published in a mainstream newspaper. Ms Markle has faced multiple credible threats to her life, requiring the intervention of the Metropolitan Police".

"Hateful articles like the one written by Mr Clarkson do not exist in a vacuum, and directly contribute to this unacceptable climate of hatred and violence."

The letter added that the MPs are "deeply concerned about the role modelling being promoted to young men and boys" in the article, which could suggest it is "okay to use violent language to address a woman that you might disagree with".

"You will no doubt know how violence against women and girls has surged across Britain in recent years. We must do better. Enough is enough. We cannot allow this type of behaviour to go unchecked any longer."

Ms Nokes said she and the other MPs "demand action is taken against Mr Clarkson and an unreserved apology is issued to Ms Markle immediately", and that definitive action is taken to ensure "no article like this is ever published again."

Clarkson should not be 'allowed back' on TV

SNP MP John Nicolson also wrote to the ITV chief executives following the "grotesque comments".

In his own letter, also shared on Twitter, Mr Nicolson said Clarkson's article had "crossed the line" and believed the broadcaster should not be "allowed back on our screens".

After the widespread backlash over the weekend, Clarkson responded on Monday in a tweet saying: "Oh dear. I've rather put my foot in it. In a column I wrote about Meghan, I made a clumsy reference to a scene in Game of Thrones and this has gone down badly with a great many people. I'm horrified to have caused so much hurt and I shall be more careful in future."

But many, including Ms Nokes, said this was "not an apology".

She added: "I welcome Jeremy Clarkson's acknowledgement that he has caused hurt... but an editorial process allowed his column to be printed unchallenged."

The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) said it had received more than 12,000 complaints over the article as of 5pm on Monday.







Outcry after presenter writes he is ‘dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets’

A Jeremy Clarkson column in the Sun about the Duchess of Sussex has provoked outcry online, with social media users labelling it “vile”, “horrific” and “abusive”.

In an article for the paper published on Friday, Clarkson wrote that he loathed Meghan “on a cellular level”. He said he was “dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant, ‘Shame!’ and throw lumps of excrement at her”.

He added: “Everyone who’s my age thinks the same way.” [Really; you are completely out of touch on bullying and inappropriate behaviour!]

The comments have drawn widespread condemnation. The comedian John Bishop tweeted that the remarks were a “blatant appeal to incite humiliation and violence on a woman”.

The presenter Carol Vorderman tweeted: “NO, Jeremy Clarkson. Not on any level, in any circumstance, is it OK to write this stuff about any woman and absolutely NO to ‘everyone who’s my age thinks the same’.”

The author Philip Pullman wrote: “That Jeremy Clarkson can write things like that, and publish them unashamed, tells us all we need to know about the way Rupert Murdoch has poisoned and rotted our public life.”







It is suspected that this is how Wealden thought about Victor Schundlark, behind closed doors. The supposition would go some way to explaining 186 recorded site visits, and estimated £500,000 of taxpayer's money spent on nursing one of the most absurd lies imaginable. That the building in question was not of historic value. Presumably, not while in his ownership. But once placed in the hands of Peter Townley and his cronies, then, oh dear, what a mistake we have made. It is the original historic asset the Mr Schundlark claimed. The interesting point being, all of these antagonists, bought into the location, knowing that the building was in a prominent position, and not exactly in keeping with their ideals. Meaning, they must have bought in on the basis of adding fuel to the fire.





Clarkson’s daughter Emily, who hosts the Should I Delete That? podcast, was praised by many on social media for an Instagram post that said: “I want to make it very clear that I stand against everything my dad said about Meghan Markle and I remain standing in support of those who are targeted with online hatred.”

The comedian Dom Joly said he was “literally gobsmacked” at Clarkson’s “utterly vile and disgusting comments”. He added: “What is it about these type of men that triggers them so?”

His fellow comic Jason Manford tweeted a photo of an excerpt from the article with the caption: “If you can defend Clarkson in this, then please don’t reply to me, just unfollow and block and move on. We are never going to agree.”

Meanwhile, the British social activist and chief executive of the Five Foundation, Nimco Ali, wrote: “A young Black woman opens up about her struggle with suicidal thoughts as a result of the abuse she got from the media, and this is how some men in the media react. This is absolutely horrific.”

The 5 Live presenter Rachel Burden tweeted: “So … there’s Jeremy Clarkson writing what he did. And then the editor deciding to publish it.”

The Radio DJ and TV host Edith Bowman wrote on Twitter: “How is someone able to print such abusive comments in an actual newspaper?”

Harry and Meghan recently opened up about life as senior royals in the UK and their decision to step down from their duties in a six-part Netflix docuseries. The final instalments of the show were released on Thursday.

The Sun has been contacted for comment.









The class battle continues, with an institution built on slavery, manufactured pomp and ceremonies, designed to brainwash citizens from birth, into accepting the status quo, without questioning the obvious flies in the ointment, supported by many in the media unquestioningly as they clutch their Gongs. With, we wonder, dear Jeremy angling for a knighthood perhaps? No, never!


Apart from revenues from films and television coverage of the Firm, for how much longer can we afford injustice and corruption at the level now becoming plainer from those in power being show for what they really are. Incompetent, for one thing, when it come to the cost of living, and brazen in reaping wealth for the privileged few, at the expense of the working men and women. When it should be, lower taxes, food aplenty and cheap energy for affordable homes.


Once we have a just society, then sure, those who work hard to make a few bob on the side, should be rewarded, but perhaps not by multi billions in the bank. Because, those sums were generated by exploiting those less fortunate. Profiteering. In exactly the same way that the Royals, became Royal.


Potentially, Harry and Meghan, if they returned, might bring a new perspective to justice and corruption, being anti discrimination. They have been the subject of such abuses, so more motivated to want to bring about changes than William and Catherine, or at least, get the next generation (royals included) thinking about what the institution of Monarchy was built on. Maybe, then even leading a transition to Abolition, in a manner that benefits those who toil just to survive. And those with visions of change for the better.


The likes of Jeremy Clarkson, who has reaped personal success and rewards from the BBC TV Top Gear fame, held to partly responsible for holding back the infrastructure and development of zero emission electric cars, may not understand, or may choose not to understand, impartiality when reporting. Something the BBC has been accused of recently.







It appears from the latest moves by the King, that he may not be either fit enough, or have the spare mental capacity to deal with a complex range of legal matters. Whereas, his mother, Queen Elizabeth is known to have dealt with numerous complex matters herself, although shying away from helping to resolve corruption at Wealden District Council. Hence, even she was thought to have been lacking when it came to issues that showed the State to be wanting.


Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte apologized Monday 18 December 2022, on behalf of his government for the Netherlands’ historical role in slavery and the slave trade, despite calls for him to delay the long-awaited statement.

“Today I apologize,” Rutte said in a 20-minute speech that was greeted with silence by an invited audience at the National Archive.

Rutte went ahead with the apology even though some activist groups in the Netherlands and its former colonies had urged him to wait until July 1 of next year, the anniversary of the abolition of slavery 160 years ago. Activists consider next year the 150th anniversary because many enslaved people were forced to continue working in plantations for a decade after abolition.

He said the government would establish a fund for initiatives to help tackle the legacy of slavery in the Netherlands and its former colonies.







Corruption lurks in every corridor of local and national buildings. Queen Elizabeth was asked for help. She declined. The duty to provide an effective remedy, now rests with King Charles

Incompatibility in Human Rights terms, is where one statute does not comply with HR statute. The European Convention does include Article 13, the right to an effective remedy.


In her lifetime, the Queen did not apologize for slavery in the British colonies, or offer some form of assistance retrospectively. Britain’s leading Black newspaper called for the royal family to apologise and pay reparations for slavery amid backlash about Prince Charles' guest editing the paper.

Britain’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade was an appalling atrocity that has left an “indelible stain” on the world, Prince Charles has acknowledged.

In June of 2022, Prince Charles told Commonwealth leaders he cannot describe "the depths of his personal sorrow" at the suffering caused by the slave trade.

Speaking in Rwanda, he said the potential of the family of nations could only be realised by acknowledging the wrongs that had "shaped our past".

Charles added it was up to states to decide if they remained monarchies or became republics in the future. There was no apology as such for Britain's participation in the slave trade.
