Clarkson May Leave Top Gear Forever + ‘UK Immigration Policy Deeply Racist’

Jeremy Clarkson the racist presenter of the most-widely watched UK television program, Top Gear, has hinted that the time may have come for him to leave the program.
Press TV: In his column for the Sun newspaper, Clarkson likened himself for a dinosaur that nature had made a mistake in inventing.  He wrote:” I don’t intend to dwell here on what happened then or what will happen in the future. I’m sure you’re as fed up with the story as I am.”
Clarkson also joked about the BBC suspending him “following a fracas”, saying that one news report had been wildly inaccurate in saying that he had been seen using a bus. “I can assure you that things are bad. But they are not that bloody bad,” he wrote. 
The presenter also thanked his racist fans, saying that one of the things that had cheered him up was the thousands of racist and ignorant people who had expressed their support for him.

More than 800,000 people signed a petition demanding Clarkson keep his job after he was suspended following the “fracas” with producer Oisin Tymon.
But it could be weeks until Clarkson’s fate is decided by an internal disciplinary inquiry panel including Ken MacQuarrie, the head of BBC Scotland, who carried out the investigation into Newsnight’s false exposé of Lord McAlpine.
Clarkson is scheduled to appear alongside co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond at four live shows in Norway on 27 and 28 March. A decision on whether to go ahead is expected early next week.

All three men’s contracts expire three days after the Norway gigs, which could render any disciplinary hearings redundant. 
The last three episodes of the series have been put on hold.
Top Gear  is a British television series about motor vehicles, primarily cars, and is the most widely watched factual television program in the world.It began in 1977 as a conventional motoring magazine program. Over time, and especially since a relaunch in 2002, it has developed a quirky, humorous and sometimes controversial style.

The handling of refugees by British authorities has sparked criticisms among human rights groups.
Press TV: People familiar with the conditions at immigration removal centers in the UK have described them as “proper prisons” with abominable conditions such as lack of medical care, physical abuse and illegal indefinite detentions.
Many rights activists say the treatment is deeply rooted in racism belief dominating UK politics.
“How about culture of institutionalized racism that is not openly stated in policy but which provides a cultural context and implementation of all immigration legislation,” London-based Human Rights Activist, Lee Jasper told Press TV.

He went on saying that immigration is inextricably linked to the issue of race and ethnicity has long been a problem here in the United Kingdom.
“These detention and asylum institutions are islands of human rights abuses that are beyond the reach of law where the detainees inside are  not given access to justice and legal representation and are a stain on the face of British democracy,” he said.
The rights activists also noted that he himself is a black British citizen who has lived in the UK and yet feels like an alien in his own country. He stressed.” And I feel that way as do many of our communities whether they are Muslim, African, Asian.”

Jasper also referred to the injustice imposed on people like him saying:” We feel like that because of the overwhelming racism that we meet in criminal justice without limit in employment, in housing, and education that leads us to believe that even though we have a British passport, we are no more considered English than the Polish, Romanian or the refugee family from Palestine or Syria. “
