In the wake of the Mexican race slur scandal, Jeremy Clarkson today visited Buckingham Palace to have tea with HRH Prince Philip. It was reported that the Duke of Edinburgh was keen to have a ‘frank and open discussion’ about how modern political correctness was strangling valid and legitimate opinions about ‘Johnny Foreigner’ and his disgusting, lazy habits and how these could be openly expressed in 21st century Britain. His Royal Highness was said to have found a kindred spirit in the Top Gear presenter and he will be appearing on a future edition of the show, driving his Landrover 4 x 4. However, his request to race it round a busy shopping precinct has been turned down. Prince Philip is also said to have requested that Clarkson and his co-presenters Richard Hammond and James Mae are invited to the forthcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. There are rumours that Clarkson has additionally submitted a bid to project manage Wills stag night involving proposals to host a fancy dress themed night in either Magaluf, Amsterdam or Prague. Steve Coogan, comedian commented, ‘Clarkson’ hair style is completely outdated now. It was alright in the Eighties, when alternative comedy was just getting started, but now his locks are just a laughing stock and he should get a sensible hair cut’.
