The futility of online protest meets the death of irony

So Sunday nights will never be the same. Over a million people have been left disconsolate, after their signing of an online petition demanding a man who has since been proven guilty of assault be reinstated to his former position fronting their favourite TV show. This seems to be the Clarkson fanboys’ “Not in our name” demo: the moment they realise that, much like the million plus souls marching to prevent an illegal war killing thousands of innocents, their passion for defending bullying and common assault has been quashed by a seemingly unfeeling Establishment, who have done what they wanted do anyway, regardless. I feel like I know you well, Clarksonites. You like big powerful spewing engines, and you don’t like these green do-gooders who try to spoil your fun. You like jibes against foreigners and gays, but you certainly don’t like Personal Computers, particularly as they seem to be going mad these days. You don’t like the ‘lefty liberal BBC’, whose figureheads such as Jeremy Paxman or Political Editor Nick Robinson are renowned Trotskyist Militant Feminists, and the ‘EUSSR’ for making you wear burkhas. I don’t know how to make the pain stop. We don’t really need a postal service or healthcare, but damn it, this country is going to hell in a handbasket if the average ‘man on the street’ can’t perpetuate racial stereotypes or tell women their place any more. RIP Great Britain.
