    As you know, Jeremy Clarkson was suspended, and the show canceled for the next 2 weeks, and possibly the finally as well.

    How much does it suck to live in this politically correct world? We are made to suffer before the investigation even starts. BBC should loose Top Gear, and all 3 presenters should find another home where the higher ups understand how passionate the followers the show, and the 3 presenters have. Jeremy is rough around the edges, and that is his appeal to the masses of those of us who understand humor, and like to have fun with our friends. BBC just Sucks! Liberal F'n Media had him in their sites for years! I personally think the guy is hilarious.

    He is known of being an arrogant guy. I never liked him anyway.

    Did the producer deserve it?

    He arranged a cold plate assortment of meats instead of the steak he wanted.

    You make the call...

    Clarkson has had a long running feud with the BBC. IMO, this has as much to do about that as anything else. You don't deck a guy only over dinner. It's been building for some time.

    If he punched someone in the face what the hell does it have to do with liberal media? So its the liberals fault he did? Stop repeating crap other people say and think for yourself!

    Were you expecting something different? Cars are on the hit list for the London/NY bankers. And hence the greenie weenies being let loose upon the automotive industry. I mean they would like everyone to ride bicycles so that more interest could be charged. And therefore they took Clarkson to the heights and then painted him as a violent racist idiot so that now anyone liking autos is seen as a violent racist idiot. A classic London banker psyop.

    Mostly PC liberal (or Labour) prigs run The Beeb. They can't stand Clarkson because he believes in free speech. And it really drives them batty that he's an enormous cash generator who just won't behave the way they want him to.

    Normally I'd say, "No," but since his response was to run to mommie instead of settling it in kind.....

    Clarkson would probably like nothing better than a big fat severance deal and a new contact with an independent producer. Auntie Beeb must be a stifling place for him to work.

    He harassed, threatened and physically assaulted a colleague for no good reason.

    He's a complete and utter disgrace.

    Jeremyis a pretty big guy, I don't know the producers size but mostly likely he wasn't in Jeremy's league. Would you be ok if he used a weapon to retaliate? Maybe 1 shot to the head?

    It always kills me when right and wrong go out the window when people try to politicize everything and put people in categories because you heard a talk show host say so. I like the show and watched most of the episodes because I'm a car guy but punching someone in the face unprovoked is plain wrong. And if you can't see that then pray it never happens to your family member!

    If they kill off Top Gear UK, will they put out to pasture that awful US version?

    This isn't about a single isolated incident; this is the straw that broke the camel's back. In fact, I don't believe the media reports - the "facts" don't add up. There's a heck of a lot more to Clarkson/BBC than we'll ever know.

    Started watching series with matt lablanc (from friends) on showtime network. Its called episodes and its about british tv writers who come to america to produce their british show in usa. It is hilarious and got me thinking about the topgear 3 amigos coming here to start a new topgear. Would be fantastic. Bbc loss could be hbo, showtime, netflix gain.
