The Grand Tour’s Jeremy Clarkson has lashed out at BBC News and declares he ‘no longer trusts a word that it says’.
Posting the bizarre and vague message on Twitter, 60-year-old Jeremy had clearly had enough of the latest reports and decided to vent his anger.
He wrote: ‘[BBC News] You have completely lost it tonight. I simply don’t trust a word you say anymore and that’s sad.’
Jeremy didn’t elaborate any further, with the message coinciding with a series of reports including EU countries halting the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, and anonymous government officials’ thoughts on how the coronavirus pandemic has been handled in the UK.
Just 15 minutes before the message, he spoke about his own experience with getting the vaccine, which has caused reports and fears of blood clotting.
Dismissing the issue, he wrote: ‘Had the Astra Zeneca vaccine yesterday and my blood is still a liquid. So it’s fine.’
Professor Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford vaccine group which developed the jab, said data from millions of people was ‘very reassuring’ that there was no link.
AstraZeneca, the manufacturer of the vaccine created in conjunction with Oxford University, has defended its injection as safe to use.
It said a review of available safety data in more than 17 million people who have been vaccinated across the UK and EU has shown ‘no evidence of an increased risk’.
The company’s chief medical officer, Ann Taylor, said the number of cases of blood clots reported is lower than the hundreds of cases that would be expected among the general population.
Further research from Scotland suggests the vaccine has cut hospital admissions by up to 94%.
