Jeremy Clarkson has been very vocal about his support for the EU after England voted to leave, often referring to himself as a “remainer”.
He told the press about his feelings on the vote that allowed Brexit: “Of course, there’s nobody in Britain who isn’t worried.
“I’ve got three children in their early twenties and you look at their life and think, ‘Why did you not get up and vote?’
“None of them did, nobody under 25 got up and voted, otherwise we’d be remaining.”
“Those coffin-dodging idiots who voted for Brexit have just screwed it all up.
“Alright, we may lose a car or two but think how many thousands of people are going to have their livelihoods absolutely ruined by car firms understandably moving their factories to Slovakia and whatever else.”
Now, with the Queen’s platinum jubilee being celebrated over the next few days, households across the country are hanging flags to show their support for the royal family. But Clarkson has seen a local household in the village of Charlbury, residing next to Chadlington, who has hung an EU flag.
The Grand Tour presenter wasn’t a fan, regardless of his support of the EU, and took to Twitter to slam the local.
“Someone in Charlbury is flying the EU flag. As a remainer, I have to say that’s funny, but also a bit c**tish,” he wrote to his almost 8 million followers.
This has sparked quite the conversation with almost 250 fans responding. One said:
“I don’t think it’s c**tish at all. If you support the EU as an ideal, then you support it. If you’re referring to the fact it’s being flown during the Jubilee bank holiday, well the royal family (regardless of your opinion of them) have nothing to do with the EU anyway.”
Another added: “Jeremy, I know you’re a complex person, but you being a Remainer, given the character you portray/project has to be the paradox of the century.”
“Yup it is. But so are you Jezza,” a third joked.
