Jeremy Clarkson has criticised Covid-19 lockdowns, politicians and hit out at the ‘communists at SAGE’.

In an interview with the Radio Times, the 61-year-old presenter shared what he thinks about the pandemic and a post-pandemic world.

He said: “When it started, I read up on pandemics and they tend to be four years long.

“I think the politicians should sometimes tell those communists at Sage to get back in their box. Let’s just all go through life with our fingers crossed and a smile on our face. 

“I can see Boris doesn’t want to open it up and shut us back down again. But if it’s going to be four years … and who knows, it could be 40 years.”

He added: “Well, if it’s going to be for ever, let’s open it up and if you die, you die.”

SAGE, the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, has been providing scientific advice to the Government throughout the pandemic.

Clarkson was being interviewed by the Radio Times for a lockdown edition of his Amazon Prime series, The Grand Tour.
