It's nearly 95k at the time of writing! I've never seen a petition on change.org grow this quickly.
I just wouldn't worry too much about Clarkson getting the boot. Top Gear makes so much money for BBC worldwide it's too valuable to drop.
I notice in that BBC story they repeat the assertion that Clarkson used the 'n' word on the broadcast footage when he quite clearly obscured it.
The BBC seems pathetically eager not to offend, or test boundaries anymore. It's really rather depressing to see...
He's a twat who should have grown up several decades ago.
I can't think of a single program I watch on the BBC, or ITV - it's just banal dross for the most part.
Perhaps Clarkson can stand in for Cameron in the upcoming debates?
Road of Bones ..... I agree with all you say including the boorish oaf comment, my major issue is humour ceases to be funny when it's at others expense who are unwittingly used to be a part of the joke. To be honest the intelligent very funny moments come from James May in particular and Richard Hammond. Top gear could replace Clarkson retain May and Hammond and the show could continue. You can be sure of one thing Clarkson couldn't carry the show without Hammond and May, It would be a hell of a wake up call if he realised that.
