Top Gear star Jeremy Clarkson was under fire after reportedly branding Gordon Brown a "one-eyed Scottish idiot". Skip related content
The BBC presenter also accused the Prime Minster of lying, in the comments reportedly made in Australia where he is hosting Top Gear Live, a stage version of the hit TV show.

Mr Brown lost his sight in one eye during after an accident playing rugby as a teenager.

Clarkson, speaking at a press conference in Sydney, compared Mr Brown to Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd, after Mr Rudd had just addressed the country on the global financial crisis.

According to The Australian newspaper, he said: "It`s the first time I`ve ever seen a world leader admit we really are in deep s***. He genuinely looked terrified. The poor man, he`s actually seen the books.

"(In the UK) we`ve got this one-eyed Scottish idiot, he keeps telling us everything's fine and he`s saved the world and we know he`s lying, but he`s smooth at telling us."

Scots politicians reacted angrily to the remark. Scottish Labour leader Iain Gray said: "Such a comment is really a reflection on Jeremy Clarkson and speaks for itself.

"Most people here are proud that the Prime Minister is a Scot and believe him to be the right person to get the UK through this global economic crisis."

Gordon Banks, Labour MP for Ochil and South Perthshire, branded the comments "unforgivable".

The BBC and Downing Street declined to comment.

I think it's a bloody outrage.

Jeremy should be back in the UK filming more Top Gear episodes . TBH he just told the truth, Gordon may see himself as saviour of the world but I wonder if thats the way the public will see him.

Clarkson is a twat, and how does causing Brown a 'one eyed' idiot (a clear reference to the fact the he is blind on one eye) adhere him to people....

If Brown was black would he have called him a black idiot or if he was in a wheelchair a cripple idiot ?

I agree!!!

He should have added, ".....and also an immoral, deluded, black-hearted son of the Manse."

Any man that can get himself expelled from Repton (where disgusting loutish behaviour is compulsory) is OK in my book............

.......... and he's very popular with the ladies.............

While his fashion sense and chauvinistic comments are often cited as making him unpopular with women, in a 2008 poll of 5,000 female members of an online dating website, Clarkson came third in a poll of MISAs – Men I Secretly Adore, behind Jonathan Ross and Phillip Schofield. Characteristically, Clarkson was upset not to have come top.

Not surprised he was upset coming in behind those two . . . Altho personally I don't lust after any of them.
