Jeremy Clarkson hits out at plans to rename A-levels

Jeremy Clarkson hits out at plans to rename A-levels

Jeremy Clarkson is not excited with Rishi Sunak's alleged plans to give A-levels a new name.

Jeremy Clarkson has hit out at the rumoured plans to rename A-levels.

In life we have three certainties - death, taxes and Jeremy Clarkson's annual A-Level results tweet.

For the past few years, every Summer, the former Top Gear host loves to keep track of the day students in the UK flood to the UCAS website to get their results.

This year, on 17 August, the 63-year-old gave people a solid nine minutes to receive and digest their results before he issued his annual tweet.

Disclaimer - his tweet is designed to encourage anyone who didn't get the results they might have been hoping for.

"It’s not the end of the world if your A level results aren’t what you’d hoped for. I got a C and 2 Us and here I am today with my own brewery," his X (Twitter) post read.

Now, in his new column for The Sun, he spoke about the rumours of Rishi Sunak's alleged plans to give A-levels a new name.

A senior Government source told the Times that plans for the name change were on the table, adding: “He came back from the summer with a series of things he wanted to move on. A-level reform is a critical part of it.”

In Clarkson's Friday (6 October) column, he began by addressing Labour's rumoured plans to make children brush their teeth under supervision while at school.

"Yup. That’s it. Their opening shot. Their big headline," Clarkson ranted.

"And it’s a worry, because what’s next? Will kids be forced to do star jumps in the playground for an hour a day?

"Before being led into classrooms where they learn about the importance of socialist principals.

"Maybe Sir Starmer could go further and build a gigantic holiday camp on the bracing North Sea coast, on the basis that children and their hard-working parents could spend a few cheap days at the beach each year.

"He could even give this project a name: 'Strength Through Joy'.

"No, hang on a minute. This has been done before, I’m sure of it. Yes, of course, it has. By Hitler."

Clarkson added: "Starmer, then, is talking nonsense and so is Sunak really. Clean teeth and a new name for A-levels are not going to mend this basket-case country of ours.

"It’s like cutting the toenails on someone with terminal cancer.'

The Clarkson's Farm star is never shy in voicing his opinion.
