With the release of Grand Tour Season 4 slowly approaching, we thought it would be appropriate to share this Jeremy Clarkson's interview that was broadcast in 2006.
Jeremy Clarkson walks us through his thoughts on climate change, the policies that surround gun rentals in the USA and Richard Hammonds' brain-damaging car accident.

ORIGINAL BROADCAST DATE: 24 November 2006

Jonathan Ross presents an entertaining show featuring comedy, celebrity chat, and the latest music

@Jonesie I concur with that. I served in the Royal Marines for 15 years and every time I served alongside US forces, either in Iraq or Afghanistan, I used to delight in ripping the piss out of them, because they are such precious snowflakes when anyone pokes fun at their nation. They are so easy to bait.

@Jon I think is a culture thing, Bill Burr in my opinion is not funny at all, but Frankie Boyle, Jason Manford & Sean Locke in my opinion are hilarious. You also have to remember we Brits take the piss out of people we like, not dislike, but the fact Merica’ hasn’t caught on is why it’s so easy to rip the US as you all react.

@Terry Breedlove you really didn't , despite what history books say in Yankee Doodle Doo Land , yous joined WWI cos Germany sent a message to Mexico saying attack the US , but we British intercepted it and yous joined . WWII yous where bring pathetic and didn't join until the Axis powers where dying . And the "revolutionary war " wasn't even a war it was more of squabble between British citizenns and YOUS signed a peace treaty and yous knew if Britain had beat France we would of pummeled you . But now France where being cunts and Spain was supplying you . Your argument its pathetic until you realise no won the "war" and considering if it wasn't for British yous would be speaking Spanish and French . And hey it's not like George Washington was British so technically the first president was British so get up yey

I think people don’t realize how humble Jeremy Clarkson really is, he’s he says what he feels but in a humorous way. When John asks how many viewers his show has and he says 350, and then thousand, and then he says million and John doesn’t realize, somebody else would’ve wanted to make sure that they got the 350 million part in so that they could brag, but he just moved on. He has even said his whole career is based in luck and he just got lucky. And I’m saying this as an American. I love the guy.

I know he jokes about America but it's mainly for entertainment. The great thing about Clarksons humour is he doesn't always believe what he says. Take everything he says with a pinch of salt. He is well travelled and likes different cultures. He isn't the stuffy Brit people think he is. It's an act of sorts. He plays up being hapless and rude.

Scooby Doo Yeah farmers need pickups bla bla bla... The vast majority of trucks are owned by regular people in the city to go for grocery shopping or driving to school. That‘s why we make fun of the whole American truck thing. We all get that pickups are very useful for certain professions, but like 99% of them are completely useless cause the owners just want a big fat car, they probably never do anything in life that actually requires a truck. In the US alone, every 54 seconds a F150 gets sold. Now compare that to the number of farmers and other people who actually need them. It‘s absolutely ridiculous to watch the soccer mums struggling with their trucks at Walmart because they desperately wanted a house on wheels instead of a proper car. That‘s what the rest of the world is laughing about. Got it now?

Eaub Felangy but we can fit some of those cars in the back of our trucks... Lol I'm not picking at you but my job would be impossible without the pickup. Farmers need off-road capability, towing capacity, and easy access to things they are transporting to and from jobsites. Matthew has a point where something being normal somewhere is funny somewhere else. We should all love and laugh at the inconsistencies amongst our species.

You might want to re-do the third grade and brush up on the concept of the "plural noun and a singular verb" (people/is...should be people/are) before you start lecturing others about "understanding" anything. It's interesting that you call people who don't "understand" Clarkson's humor "dense." Doesn't that make you the "hater" here? Your claim to intellectual superiority falls flat. If they're "dense," you're what...light in the IQ department? A thin thinker? Stupid? How about a tiresome, condescending dimwit.

I remember Top Gear. True, electric cars are an environmental mess. It takes 5 years to become carbon neutral because of the production process for the batteries; assuming your electricity supply is nuclear, solar or wind... Stupid idea to front load CO2 emissions, assuming it is a principle cause of negative climate change and not just plant food.

Błażej Wianecki
Tyler Brown There is no such thing as pure electric 3 series. There is a plug-in hybrid. And when it has ic engine and electric engine with (very heavy) batteries, no wonder it also has a bigger range. Get your facts right. There are very few ways pure electric cars are better than ic cars as for now. I’m talking about how such vehicle would play for the average customer all around the world. Not a privileged rich man who only commutes 30 miles a day on the outskirts of London. When this guy plans to go to southern France on summer holidays he is stuffed anyways. The range anxiety in evs in my opinion just finishes discussion. Let’s hope it will improve. Then we will “only” have to deal with actual ecological ways of producing electricity, batteries, their decreasing efficiency in time and nature-friendly ways of disposing said batteries. Only then we are all set.
Luke Pullen
Luke Pullen Vor 2 years
jackaljade claimed mileage is often a fallacy. But affordable electric cars have an utter rubbish range of a couple of hundred miles and that’s if you drive conservatively when you put your foot down that drops horrifically. The thing with petrol is it’s something that’s made when making oil, it’s a waste product and mainly now it’s a waste product if making diesel because that’s what all the lorry’s use and the buses. The question is is are private cars really the issue? I would say aircraft are a bigger problem. They won’t make a battery that lasts that long. Because the batteries are extremely unstable and like to explode. Also unlike a proper engine the batteries degrade over time worsening the range meaning it needs to be charged longer and a lot of manufacturers will have a very limited warranty on the batteries.
jackaljade
jackaljade Vor 2 years
@Luke Pullen - They don't have a shorter lifespan, they have a longer lifespan on average, if the manufacturer's are to be believed. And the range for an electrical car is a lot more than you're making out. For example, you said the lifespan of an electric car is 6 years... But that is plainly untrue. Almost all electric cars come with a warranty of 8 years (or 100,000 miles, whichever comes sooner), so clearly manufacturers are expecting their electric cars to last for more than the 6 years you've said. Also, Tesla say their batteries will be good for 300,000 to 500,000 miles. Which is a lot more than the average lifespan of a traditional car. They are also saying they will be coming out with a battery that lasts 1,000,000 miles soon, something which fuel engines are never likely to achieve. With all dues respect, the things you're saying don't really make much sense. For example, you're saying charging pollutes because the electricity comes from power stations. But conversly a lot of energy goes into getting petrol; it has to be mined and transported, often brought in from overseas and from thousands of miles away. While electricity can be made more locally. So I don't see a difference. All of these things cancel each other out and are not what's important. They're red-herrings. The most important thing you're ignoring is while a car is running on the road is it polluting?? For electric cars, the answer is NO. For fuel cars, the answer is YES. This is what OFFSET means, and why electric cars are a better option for the environment and for the near future, before the next technology comes along.
Luke Pullen
Luke Pullen Vor 2 years
jackaljade how can they offset it when they need charging every few hundred miles using electricity from fossil fuels? How are they offsetting it when they have a shorter lifespan that a normal car. How are they offsetting it when producing an electric car does more damage than diesel cars do in there lifetime?
jackaljade
jackaljade Vor 2 years
@Luke Pullen - I hear everything you're saying, but you're completely missing that electric cars can OFFSET the waste and pollution they're producing... Whereas diesel and patrol cars CAN'T do this, they can only ADD to waste and pollution. This unambiguously makes electric cars a better option for the environment and the future.

Growing up in Australia in the 60's, when we had high immigration numbers of English people, I got to observe them closely. For a number of reasons, despite having so much in common, they were universally disliked because of their totally unmerited air of superiority and constant whining about everything - and I mean, everything. The weather, the tax system, the pay, the working conditions, the sport, the traffic rules, the housing, the food - nothing was right. But there was one thing they all had in common - an unmitigated hatred and disdain for Americans. It took me years to work out why this is, but when it came to me it explained everything. The Brits hate Americans for two main reasons; they were humiliated because they had to beg the yanks to rescue them in two wars in the last century, and because the yanks, despite any shortcomings of their own, do everything - everything - better than the Brits. It's a simple matter of sour grapes born of humiliation and envy. It really is that simple, and Clarkson is a perfect example of it. Britain hasn't made a decent car for fifty years, yet Clarkson's favourite reprise when talking about them is, "... this is a marvel of British engineering!" What utter tosh! They're every bit as bad as the crap that comes from China. In Australia, you can't even give away any year-old British car, unless it's to a Pom.

Complaining, feeling superior and having a dislike for America are traits that are universal throughout Europe. If we’re being serious however, I do not think the majority of people in the UK (or the rest of Europe), have anything against Americans - I certainly don’t. Plus STRONGLY disagree that “the yanks [do everything] better than the Brits” - that’s just utter rubbish - and your statement regarding the war (no one cares, we’re just extremely thankful to those who fought for our freedom). The real reasons as to why people may indeed dislike the US (because believe me most of the time it has very little to do with envy - although of course they have lots to be proud of), are as follows: *Reasons for disliking the American people:* (certain people believe them to be) annoying, loud, brash, ignorant, arrogant, overly nationalistic, parochial, race obsessed etc. *Reasons for disliking America:* (certain people dislike the) politics (e.g. Trump), overseas conflicts (e.g. Middle East), racism (e.g. recent events such as the death of George Floyd), gun violence (e.g. school shootings), poor quality corporations (e.g. fast food chains, Starbucks, cheap reality television), poor quality produce (e.g. growth hormones, additives and chemicals within a lot of the food, what most people would perceive as “poorer” quality food production methods [chlorinated chicken, egg sanitisation, hormone-treated beef], “fake” food [things that would not be considered “real” in other countries such as chocolate, butter, cheese]), car culture (e.g. strip malls, gigantic suburbs, poor walkability), excessive consumption (e.g. pollution) etc. These are NOT my personal views, I’m just giving some examples to explain my point.

Interesting you raised some valid points, we brits do complain about everything. I don’t know if the dislike of the yanks is strictly down to the wars or not being able to make better cars but it could well be true for some, not all. One thing to say though is that I can see why a lot of people would be annoyed at America with ww2, they were ready to let hitler take over the whole of the world before they did anything as long as it would benefit them financially, and staying out of the war for so long put a terrible strain on the uk economy and allowed the USA to rise as a super power

@Quandary Some mindsets are too stupid to understand that old does not equate to obsolete. Change isn't always for the better and no real car enthusiast was asking to swap their engines with a battery - that's like asking to have an RC Car or Mobility Scooter when you've already got the real thing! Electric cars are for people who have no appreciation of real cars beyond them being a means of getting from A to B; they're for the people who would pick a Ford Escort over a Ferrari Testarossa. Real cars can be art, the best an electric car could ever hope to be is a sub-par imitation.

@Dung Nguyen Manh There is a reason why every house is not fitted with own generator, that's because it's inefficient. Car only produces energy for going forward and backward, otherwise energy goes wasted. Big powerplants produce power much more efficiently. Power is made in powerplants, only in some cases coal or something is shipped. When producing fuel, they need to first drill it, transport it, refine it, transport it some more and storage them, so that you can finally put the gas inside your car.

He’s spot on right about solar and wind power. The headline figures look good but the reality is an average of 1/5. All that infrastructure for power less than a week out of every month. In the meantime, the gas fired plant is sitting wastefully on standby chucking out loads more CO2 than if it just made power 24/7.

@Rich S I agree. I'm surprised at how well thing conversation is turning out to be ! I wish more of my friends were that good at arguing. The statistics are for a first world country, I can't remember which one on the top of my head, probably the US. "You of all people should know how much variety there is when it comes to sexual desires" -> Indeed, in leads to some incredibly fun and open discussions about so called 'wrong' or 'bad' things. I'll just add that I didn't mean to be hateful toward her. I meant something more of a taunt. Like a childish "I won, you lost" revenge, in name of everything that I had to go through. I do understand (and see of my own eyes) that violence causes violence. People like me tend to be overly harsh for no good reason, and I hate that. I guess I just tasted my own medicine. Actually, thank you for reminding me of that comment, I'll try and not do it again. You just made the world better, I offer you 1 internet cookie and hug !

Clarkson makes many valid points, esp to American "pop" culture. What he seems to not understand is that much of what the US is, has its basis in two very important things the British planted when they occupied North America. Slavery as a large part of the labor force, and unchecked capitalism, which also infected their own country, til after WWII.

Don't talk rubbish. The French and Spanish were also heavily involved in the slave trade in America. The British ABOLISHED slavery and had more influence on the northern states. The southern USA was more French than British (New Orleans is a French name). Capitalism is not a bad thing, it has created the levels of prosperity we have today. The UK is capitalistic with a social safety net. Americas model is of its own making.
