The Truth about Goats

“Chief Rabbi blames ‘society’ but points at Jeremy Clarkson”

Lord Jonathan Sacks took the unusual step of criticising the UK’s ‘pervasive breakdown in trust’ while standing next to a large cardboard cut out of the Top Gear presenter. Without directly referring to Mr Clarkson, the Rabbi lamented the collapse of the institution of marriage, the coverting of Kristin Scott Thomas and the deflowering of James May.

Furtively winking and pointing towards the ‘Clarkson cut out’, Lord Sacks criticised people who seek only to ‘benefit’ themselves, wear denim and smell of woodbines. The, soon-to-be retired, Chief Rabbi reiterated that he was talking in general terms and that no inference should be drawn from the photo’s of Mr Clarkson’s ‘extra-marital activities’ he was waving in his hand.

Speaking to a room full of journalists Lord Sacks asked what was the common denominator between the ‘unmasking’ of The Stig in 2004, the ‘Hammond Crash’ in 2006 and the ‘global financial crisis’ in 2008? The Rabbi was then heard to repeatedly cough what sounded like ‘Clarkson is a homophobe’ under his breath. A spokesmen for Lord Sacks said: ‘Maybe it’s a coincidence that the growth of individualism over the past 50 years coincided with Jeremy Clarkson learning to talk? Maybe global warming is a fad? And maybe being a multi-millionaire News Corp journalist doesn’t mean you suck the devil’s teat?’

No stranger to controversy, Mr Clarkson’s own playful racism is often excused by his employers at the BBC. TV executives feel it is a harmless ‘twinkle’ in his eye, in the same benign way Jim Davidson has a ‘song in his heart’ and Jonathan Rhys Meyers has ‘vodka for blood’. The spokesmen clarified: ‘Lord Sacks is not saying Chipping Norton is Gomorrah. That would be wrong. It’s for you to draw your own conclusion,’ he said, with a surreptitious twinkle in his eye.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
