Here's the story

The phrase 'self-fulfilling prophesy' springs to mind.

This man has become very rich by acting like an overgrown schoolboy. I shall shed no tears if the suspension turns into a sacking, but I'm not holding my breath - audience ratings are a powerful motivator where TV bosses are concerned.

He's an oaf pure and simple,so far up himself he must be inside out.Remember other presenters have come and gone and so shall he.in a few months it could be Jeremy who ?.He thinks he's bullet proof we shall see.

Before you hang him why not wait for the full story, don't forget there's always 2 sides to every thing.

You're all suckers.

This'll be another publicity stunt, very much along the lines of the Argentinian Number Plate Scam.

It's cheaper than paying an Advertising Agency..

Sorry folks, but you've been conned again!

spider9 well said, why spoil a good hanging far better than waiting for the facts.

"Sorry folks, but you've been conned again!"

I think not. A fracas with a TV producer isn't something you stage for publicity purposes. There was obviously a row involving Clarkson's ego, and the BBC has acted accordingly.

There will be an investigation, but I'm a realist - I do not expect the BBC to axe someone whose programme attracts 6 million viewers unless the fracas was a very serious affair indeed.

Exit one producer?

I like Clarkson, he's an oaf but a clever one.

I do however wish the format of the show would revert to honest and entertaining reviews of new models rather than 100 per cent crazy stunts.

The BBC will not countenance such a successful program as this to go to a rival such as ITV so I expect he will have knuckles rapped ( if indeed he is at fault ) and Top Gear will carry on.

"There was obviously a row involving Clarkson's ego," how do you know that, are you some how gifted with precognition and already know the outcome.

Not trying to be funny but you seem to have already heard all the evidence , come to a conclusion and found him guilty just like some people did when they stated that the Porsche he took to Argentina had had the licence plate swapped.
