Jeremy Clarkson has risked outrage by suggesting that long queues for airport border control checks could be solved by “a bit of racism.”

The BBC Top Gear presenter claimed that the long delays at Heathrow border control were because immigration officials were no longer allowed to use their discretion to wave certain passengers through.

He said: “Nobody is waved through any more. The result is plain for all to see. There’s a two-hour wait.

“And the problem is: the only possible solution is to introduce a bit of racism.”

He added: “Nobody likes a racist. Nobody likes prejudice. It has no place at work, at play, or in government.

“But at Heathrow airport? Hmmm.”
