ALL HUMOUR IS CONSERVATIVE:

Three-quarters of Telegraph readers back Clarkson over 'execution' of strikers rant (Murray Wardop, 02 Dec 2011, The Telegraph)

A poll among readers found that 73 per cent believed the Top Gear presenter had not gone too far in his remarks on the BBC's The One Show because he was evidently only trying to raise a laugh.

Of the 16,718 people who took part in the survey, only 27 per cent believed Clarkson's rant was offensive.

The 51-year-old television star came under heavy criticism after he launched an attack on public servants, suggesting they ought to be executed in front of their families for taking industrial action over reforms to their gold-plated pensions.
