It ended with Matthew Wright issuing a literal call to arms to redress the situation.

He was advocating shooting the privileged?

Unbelievable as it sounds, yes - that's exactly what he did.

Well... he said the only way he could see the class struggle resolved would be for those at the rough end of it to obtain guns. What he suggested they should do with them, I suppose you could say he left to the imagination, but he definitely used the word 'revolution'.

Matthew Wright. Former presenter of The Wright Stuff, on Channel 5.

I must say, I'm surprised it hasn't attracted more attention.
