At the other end of the scale we have Swaziland where, for every 100,000 people, 88 arrive at the Pearly Gates sporting a smouldering Dunlop necklace

Clarkson speaking on murder rate/ As far as i can get the joke is Dunlop necklace=Dunlop tyre
But why a killed person wears a smouldering tyre??

Thank everyone

    The practice is known as necklacing and is horrific. From Wikipedia: Necklacing: Necklacing is the practice of summary execution and torture carried out by forcing a rubber tire, filled with petrol, around a victim's chest and arms, and setting it on fire. The victim may take up to 20 minutes to die, suffering severe burns in the process.

    There is more information on that link.

    He doesn't say that at all -- he says that for every 100,000 people, 88 die this way.

    You've lost your ability to capitalize and spell and punctuate in the last few minutes? :D Please fix.
