Jeremy Clarkson, 61, was completely bowled over at the news that a lecturer had been let go for throwing a piece of cardboard at one of his students. The Grand Tour star shook his head as he thought about how times had changed since he was at school.
When I was at school, the teachers used to throw all sorts of things at me
Fans of Jeremy know he’s a quite a bold and outspoken character, and it’s hard to imagine he’s was anything but that when he was a youngster.
So when he read about the fate of the poor lecturer, he was astounded.
Wiring in his latest column for The Sun, the presenter penned: “A lecturer has been fired for ‘lightly’ throwing a piece of cardboard at one of his students.
“Oh how times have changed.”
He reminisced on his naughty days, saying: “When I was at school, the teachers used to throw all sorts of things at me.
“One even hurled a blackboard rubber at my head. And he wasn’t fired.”
Jeremy quickly added: “Mind you, he might be today, for calling it a ‘blackboard rubber.'”
Back to present day, despite his perhaps mischievous behaviour and failure to leave with any A-Levels – cue his hugely-anticipated annual message to students during results week – Jeremy has become very successful.
Having travelled all over the world with his motoring jobs to more recently bringing to life his own 1,000 acre working farm and then being crowned the NFU’s (National Farmer’s Union) Farming Champion of the Year for promoting home-grown food through his hit Amazon Prime series, Clarkson’s Farm, he is on top of the world.
But now, the 61-year-old is has his sights set on something else completely out of his usual remit.
In a new column for The Times, the TV star revealed he wants to open his own restaurant and hire older people to work there.
His longing for something fresh to focus on comes after he sat down and debated life and his future now that he’s in his 60s.
Jeremy went on to discuss how it “saddens” him to think that there are things he will now no longer be able to do, such as dive off a boat or ski down another black run.
And while he admitted that he’s been very lucky in life, with his career having taken him all over the world where he’s endured some of the most incredible experiences known to man, he said he doesn’t want to admit he’s finished just because he’s getting older.
“I see lots of driven young people every day, but rarely do I see an older person charging round the place, all elbows and fire and steely determination,” he explained.
“Which means there’s a vast and experienced pool of talent going to waste.
“And that brings me on to a plea.”
He went on: “I have all the ingredients I need for my new restaurant but no clue how they might be turned into stuff that people might want to put in their mouths.
“So is there anyone old out there who knows how to run such an establishment?”
The TV star went on to reveal his visions for the restaurant that he hopes will be a success.
He added: “I want a kitchen full of pies and gravy and wipe-down chairs and Bad Company on the stereo and everyone exchanging bewildered looks when someone asks for the transgender lavatories.
“It’d be fun and that, as the clock ticks down to zero, is all we can hope for.”
