    Lol, he's been going on about Argentina in every episode (directly or indirectly). I'm guessing this is not going to last. He's going to be back soon whether the BBC likes it or not. The people love him!

    There's only one thing more popular than Top Gear in Britain, the Queen.

    So now he's considering leaving BBC, even if he is reinstated.
    One thing's for sure. Top Gear won't last without him. I'll miss the British sarcasm and humor

    yeah, seems that the BBC director had it inside him for ages to remove Clarkson, and this was an apt issue.

    The argument happened over a dinner that was to be served to the team after wrapping up their shooting for the day. They were late in reaching the restaurant of the hotel, and the chef had gone for the day. He was offered a cold platter instead of a steak that he wanted, and the argument began.

    Statement from BBC -

    "
    confirming that last night’s show (15th March) was to be postponed following an incident during production.
    The incident in question is currently being investigated and Ken MacQuarrie, the director of BBC Scotland, has been appointed to lead this process.

    We can now confirm that Top Gear will not be back in the studio this week and, as such, the episode due for broadcast this Sunday night (22nd March) will also be postponed pending the outcome of the investigation.

    We will bring you more news as soon as we have it."

    He comes out biased sometimes but yes I've seen some of his vids off late and he is amusing.

    New host/New team. Apparently the old producer and Jeremy/May/Hammond are getting together for a series on NetFlix.
