Ar­ro­gant Clark­son be­lieves car is king

In re­sponse to the in­fa­mous Jeremy Clark­son in last week’s Ex­press, I guess that it could “only be a mat­ter of time be­fore some­body was killed” in the shared space in Ash­ford, if the driv­ers pro­ceed with the ar­ro­gance of peo­ple like Mr Clark­son.

He seems to re­gard the car as king and is ap­par­ently un­con­cerned about his fel­low hu­man be­ings who hap­pen to be pedes­tri­ans.

He might need to be a lit­tle more sen­si­tive to the needs of oth­ers when driv­ing in such sit­u­a­tions.

Who is “the id­iot”? Pos­si­bly one who drives with­out con­sid­er­a­tion for oth­ers? Does he not put the chil­dren’s safety (the humps) be­fore his self­ish de­ter­mi­na­tion to drive just as fast as he deems he has the right to?

A re­lated mat­ter is Mr Clark­son’s ex­ces­sive pro­mo­tion of fast cars which use vast quan­ti­ties of petrol and pro­duce enor­mous amounts of pol­lu­tion.

Is he not aware of cli­mate change and the slow trash­ing of the planet which is be­ing brought about by such a self­ish way of life plus the in­flu­ence he is hav­ing on oth­ers? Mar­i­lyn San­son Ash­ford Green Party
