    I do not know which is more ridiculous. This pathetic story or the fact that mercopress is covering it.

    South America has countries which are literally on the verge of collapse and anarchy and they are more interested in Jeremy Clarkson.
    Kind of says it all really.

    Mind you , all our news channels have done nothing but talk about the supposed solar eclipse this morning .
    Probably because they know we are all bored shitless by the election campaign .

    Well the petition to have JC reinstated has reached more than a million.

    I wonder if those lunatics that run the BBC will actually listen to what the license paying public wants.

    However, if they fire Clarkson it'll be one of the worst decisions EVER made by the BBC. He is one of their biggest money earners...not James May, not Richard Hammond...most people watch Top Gear to see JC because they like his completely un-PC dry sense of humour.

    Personally I think Clarkson should do more of those documentaries on War Stories. The two he did on the Victoria Cross, and the Greatest Raid of All Time, were excellent, and you could really see his passion for the subject.

    But if he leaves the BBC I'm sure just about any other channel will snap him up. And the BBC will have lost a big money earner, and the million plus license payers may just start another petition to have the TV license scrapped and make those turkeys at the BBC really have to earn their livings.

    Time will tell, I'm sure.

    BBC lost almost four million viewers when 'Red Arrows: Inside the Bubble' was shown instead of the expected Top Gear.

    Loss of 4 mio. viewers is a story in any and every media, including Mercopress.

    NY Times has 7 different articles on the subject.

    @ 3 LEPRecon
    Given the contracts for all three are up for renewal, or not, next month. I wouldn’t be surprised if all three jump ship and start another show on another channel.

    Sky TV launch Top Gears, featuring PC Clarkson, Bemused May and their pet hamster.
