Jeremy Clarkson Lauded by British Foreign Secretary, Praises Host For 'British Influence'

Boris Johnson, the British Foreign Secretary, made a loud statement commending Jeremy Clarkson for his outstanding work in advancing British influence around the globe, while also taking a deep grip at the "infuriatingly and shamelessly anti-Brexit".

It has been noted that Clarkson was fired from the top British motoring show Top Gear in March last year. The outing happened after he punched his producer Oisin Tymon in the face and referred to him as a "lazy Irish." On the other side, the Irish had nothing to say about what happened.

Described Clarkson as a "prophet more honoured abroad," Boris addressed the Conservative conference in Birmingham about Clarkson's incomparable lifting up of Britain's impact across every Nations.

Clarkson was the popular face of Top Gear, which is a program aired in more than 200 countries worldwide. He became known for his legacy of mixing a passion for cars with blunt banter and swagger that often generated controversy and caused offence.

Moreover, Clarkson had been on a final warning from the BBC over accusations he had used racist language while filming the show when the incident with Tymon occurred.

As of press times, Clarkson and co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May are working together on a new motoring show called "The Grand Tour," which is intended for Amazon Video. This is yet another milestone for Clarkson. But this time, not for punching an Irish workmate but for a roaring motoring shows off for auto patrons.

"No matter how infuriating and shamelessly anti-Brexit they sometimes can be, I think the Beeb is the single greatest and most effective ambassador for our culture and our values," exclaimed Boris as he furthered about reliving British influence on a more positive way.
