"fuzzy-haired frog"...would that be worse, better or just the same? Would it have led to being sacked? Or more topically, what about "Curly-haired french idiot"...hypothetical I guess but if JC can get away by VERY publically calling Gordon Brown a "one-eyed Scottish idiot" why the sacking of Carol Thatcher over a 'throw-away' comment said in private?
Well, the funniest thing about each of these stories is that these 'shocking' comments led Jo Brand to leave the room in disgust, oh the irony! And that NOBODY has had a go at Clarkson for calling Brown a liar!
"As some rolled their eyes and others challenged Thatcher about her use of the word, she is said to have responded, “well, he’s half-golliwog”, prompting Brand to leave the room in disgust" [link]
