Jeremy Clarkson voices his opinion on Covid-19 scientists

From voicing his opinions on nearly every car under the sun, cyclists, climate change, the BBC, Piers Morgan and of course Jag owners, Jeremy Clarkson has inevitably given his well-anticipated opinion on Covid-19 scientists.

The car enthusiast, who is notorious for his controversial opinions, took aim at the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), referring to them as “communists” and stating, “if you die, you die.”

He advised against the UK entering another lockdown while saying that scientists should “get back in their box”.

Clarkson spoke to Radio Times where he stated his opinions on the pandemic and what should be done in the future.

“When it started, I read up on pandemics and they tend to be four years long.”

In regards to what can be achieved going forward, Clarkson stated, “Let’s just all go through life with our fingers crossed and a smile on our face.”

He concluded with, “Well, if it’s going to be forever, let’s open it up and if you die, you die.”

Back in January, Clarkson spoke to The Times about his Covid-19 experience after catching the virus last Christmas. In relation to his experience, Clarkson stated, “I’m not going to lie – it was quite scary.”

He talked about the doctor explaining to him how over the course of 14 days, he would either get better or end up in hospital.

“Where, because I am 60 and fat, and because I’ve smoked half a million cigarettes and had double pneumonia, I’d probably die, on my own, in a lonely plastic tent.”

He went on to describe how time and medicine would always come to the rescue when he fell ill but in the case of Covid-19 “you have to lie there, on your own, knowing that medicine is not on its way and that time is your worst enemy.”
