Right. We should have 24 hours of despair and moaning, and then we will all have to roll up our sleeves and make this shit shower work.— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) June 24, 2016
Both Jeremy Clarkson and The Grand Tour co-host James May joined the raft of celebrities supporting the Stay side in the EU vote. The two made headlines earlier this week when they appeared in a video explaining – in their own unique and special way – why the Brits should sick with the EU.
But that was not to be. The Leave movement won yesterday's vote by a narrow margin, and now the global economy is in something of a tizzy. In the auto industry, there's concern among manufacturers as their share prices plunge in markets. On a larger economic scale, stock exchanges around the world are reeling as the British pound sterling dropped earlier today to its lowest level in over 30 years. And for Clarkson, the Leave vote cost his friend, Prime Minister David Cameron, his job.
