Following the incident with Clarkson allegedly punching a producer, the remainder of the current Topgear series has been scrapped. What do we think? Generally I'm a fan of Clarkson's humour and political incorrectness (and I found the Argentina number plate hilarious) but he does seem to get away with things that others wouldn't. His comments about Hyundai staff  eating dogs among others - yes they make me giggle but are they any better than what Kilroy was sacked for a decade ago? Sometimes in recent years it seems he's making an extra effort to be politically incorrect just to stay relevant.

Now he's been suspended for allegedly punching a producer. Five Live is full of people unhappy about his suspension but what workplaces would you not get sacked from for punching a colleague?

That is an instant dismissal case,

Seeing as he was on his last warning,

He will be sacked,

Then he will go to Sky or some other channel and take half his viewers with him,

It's a shame I love the programme.

top gear is the only bbc tv show I watch live now. I just listen to the radio or watch everything on the iplayer.

Can't stand the man! I can't watch anything with him in it either. I know who my vote for twit of the week will be for next week.


Grimsby and proud!

Don't like him or the Top Gear "banter". I hope they sack him but the BBC makes millions of his presence on the show so perhaps another final warning.

If I had to watch a programme about men and cars it would definitely be Guy Martin not Top Gear. Seems a really nice bloke and that programme about India was really interesting.

Over 300,000 have signed an online petition to reinstate him.

That's in less than 24 hours.

Look at me, look at me, I'm so controversial.

Loathe him, the program and his casual racism.

500,000 have signed now,

Will the BBC be brave enough to sack him ?

Clarkson is the bell-end's bell-end. Can't stand the man and don't understand why anybody would like him.

Top Gear the show is also long past its best before date. When the presenters (Clarkson included) review the flashy and interesting cars properly it is quite entertaining, but the various 'stunts' and journeys overseas have become so dreadfully-scripted and unfunny it is painful to watch them. The problem is that Clarkson and Co think they are funny but they simply aren't and the harder they try, the worse their 'witty dialogue' becomes.

The gushing interviews with celebs are just awful and I the people who actually want to hang around in the audience strike me as particularly pathetic.

I'll sometimes watch parts of the shows on demand (proper car reviews/comparisons), but the rest is just utter bilge.
