Better That Than a "One-Eyed Scottish Idiot": Genteel Politics in the UK

THE BBC has been plunged into a new controversy after Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson used the most offensive swear word in the English language to describe British Prime Minister Gordon Brown in front of a studio audience.

Clarkson called Mr Brown a c--t during the show's recording on Wednesday night.

Although some in the audience reportedly burst out laughing at his comments, BBC2 controller Janice Hadlow later gave Clarkson a "dressing down" in front of crew, the Daily Mail reports.

He is also understood to have made similarly offensive remarks about Mr Brown to an audience during the show's filming earlier this month.

The 49-year-old host's remarks come less than six months after he was forced to apologise for calling Mr Brown a 'one-eyed Scottish idiot' during an interview in Australia.
