Is that who that was - I always fastforward through that part and wondered who the hell he was then decided it was probably another crap pop star which turned out to be correct! :D

3 million albums and 10 million singles sold is hardly a crap Pop star.

There is no accounting for taste mate, One Direction sell millions and none of their shit will stand the test of time.

That's your opinion tho. They are obviously successful down to the target audience they cater for.

So what you're effectively saying is that success and shite are mutually exclusive. I'm not sure I buy that.

Isn't that where clarkson lives?

Nah, he lives in a village about 2 miles away. David Cameron lives about 7 miles away and Rebecca Brooks doesn't even live here. Alex James is 4 miles away in another village.

The media will have you believe they all live in Chipping Norton though.

I think I noticed the headline on the back page of the paper one of them was reading in the garden centre, this was filmed the day after we lost to Uruguay in the World Cup!!!

I don't really care to be honest, the fact is tho you didn't watch or like his bit because you don't like his music.. It's not really like he has other interests. I mean fancy a guy who loves cars going on a show about cars driving a car.

Madness.

Most of the so-called 'stars' are just there to plug their latest album/movie/whatever though and makes the whole thing all a bit false. I used to watch it tbh, but I don't see the point in it now and flick through it even if there is someone I really like on it.

"Fracas" with a producer according to a BBC statement.

Oh, I wonder what happened. He'll be back, he helps the BBC make too much money.

Last weeks episode wasn't too bad, Rallycross is fucking mental! Loved that replica E-Type too even though I've never been fond of Jags and wouldn't buy one.

Reportedly punched a producer in a row.

This week's episode won't be shown and the rest of the series is postponed. :(

Repeated casual racism is ok, but as soon as he twats a BBC employee he's suspended.

The comments on the Reinstate Jeremy Clarkson Facebook group are golden.

"BBC are a joke wasn't that when they were letting jimmy saville do his stuff if you no what a mean"

"Damn BBC run by paedophile loving lesbians. Bring back Clarkson.."

"What a crock the BBC are ....how to let pc try and ruin someones career....just cause he actualy speaks the truth and has a naughty sence of humour.....oh how much fun it will be when the pc brigade abolish fun and we all live in a sterile flat society....pahhhh"

"With out you there not point run the topgar"

"If we didn't have people like clarkson, and shows like Topgear, then history and life would be different.

"Compare clarkson to some of the other monsters that have been on the television, especially 30-40 years ago.

"Clarkson pushes the boundaries. Clarkson speaks his mind.

"But what Clarkson doesn't do is commit serious crimes. Yet he gets the same defamation of character? How is that even fair."

Seems to be a lot of support for Clarkson - is that because he is popular?

Not sure many of us would get away which allegations of whacking somebody...

The BBC are simply trying to show they have teeth. It will probably be back on within a few weeks after the investigation comes back inconclusive or concludes that they were both at fault etc etc. Clarkson earns them millions, I really can't see him being sacked. Top Gear might have been a bit shit for years, but without him it wouldn't work at all, and there is no way the BBC will be dropping it permanently any time soon.

As for the FB page, looking at some of those comments, I'm surprised they have enough intelligence to use a keyboard or a mobile phone.

If they did get rid of him Sky or someone else would snap him up in a heartbeat and you can't see them willingly giving him to another broadcaster.

I see the Katie Hopkins is defending him (shock horror), Daily mail readers up in arms 'it's Political correctness gone mad'...no it isn't, throwing punches has nothing to do with politcal correctness.

Having said that I do find it amusing when you have someone being controversial for controversy sake and they get huge numbers of idiots agreeing with them.

Apparently he's refusing the rejoin anyway. Dunno if that's dummy spitting or whether he means it. If he's gone then I guess Top Gear will either be cancelled our peter out of prominence Never Mind the Buzzcocks-style. I have to wonder though, what will fill the weekly entertainment void for red meat men? I'm enjoying this much more than I could enjoy an episode of Top Gear anyway.

Those online campaigns are class. The Reinstate page made this one up themselves.

That is interesting if true. It could easily be argued it's run it's course and now is a good time to put it out to pasture, and it's true he wants out perhaps Clarkson is aware of this and that is part of the reason he doesn't want to stay with the BBC. I will be sorry to see it go purely for what it was 8-10 ago, but not for what it's become. However, it could simply be Clarkson angling for more money, despite his recent "fracas". I read he is due to sign a new contract with the BBC.

When May was initially asked if Clarkson was innocent, he said: "Of being a knob? No."

I liked that. Mention in there of Sky trying to lure all three of them for years, and that all three contracts with the BBC are up at the end of the month and none of them have signed new ones. Contrary to what I said earlier, it looks like this could be the end of Top Gear after all.

I saw something online last night that compared him to Luis Suarez. They've got a point. Liverpool were never going to sack him for what he did there, and the BBC aren't going to sack Clarkson. Both are / were far too valuable to their employers.
