REVEALED: What the British public really think of Jeremy Clarkson

Post Date: 14th November 2014


Few television presenters polarize opinion quite as much as Jeremy Clarkson. Here at Dronsfields we were curious exactly what the public thought of the Top Gear presenter so:

We asked 1,000 people to complete the sentence: ‘Jeremy Clarkson is …’

They could say whatever they wanted – we didn’t offer any guidance one way or another.

Clarkson Haters

36% of people really didn’t have a nice opinion of poor Jeremy – the results are extremely NSFW and we couldn’t possibly publish on a family-friendly website such as Dronsfields. You can, however, download the full results spreadsheet here if you would like to read all of the answers.

While most of the answers would need asterisks if we were to publish them here, we thought we’d share some of the most original criticisms:

  • Bully hiding behind a thin veil of sarcasm
  • Confused Neanderthal with xenophobic tendencies but fancies himself a learned man.
  • Disliked by my mum
  • Liability with over inflated opinion of his own importance
  • Representation of what is wrong with society
  • Repugnant
  • Sign of everything that is bad with Britain
  • Waste of licence payers’ money

Clarkson Fans

Only 26% of those surveyed had positive things to say about the marmite presenter. 48 people replied with ‘funny’ making it the top overall answer! Here are some of the best replies from Clarkson fans:

  • Deeply misunderstood.
  • Fall Guy.
  • God amongst men.
  • Intellectual comedy genius.
  • Narcissistically & intellectually brilliant.
  • Persecuted by the PC brigade, he is no angel, but he is no villain.
  • Potential candidate for PM
  • Should be PM
  • Totally wrong but absolutely right
