Typical, we get a bigot we can all live with because he says it as it is, some upstart prissy producer complains to the beeb and the star of the show is suspended!
Yeah O.K. if he has done wrong they need to investigate, BUT, why don't they give us the full story? Surely the BBC, the honest voice of the nation shouldn't hide behind closed doors? They always tell us if they think someone else needs exposing, ah well, I'll carry on paying my licence fee & my subscribing to sky news, I wonder which will be the first to reveal the truth about this ground breaking news?

I think the BBC paid for the show, so "it's theirs", but I believe Jeremy Clarkson holds the rights to the franchise.

Apparently he took a swing at someone, but it doesn't give the reason why, suppose we'll just have to wait & see.

Jeremy Clarkson suspended: BBC refuses to say whether Top Gear will ever return after it is pulled from schedules - Telegraph

Re: Bigoted or free speech

if jeremy clarkson was as big of a biggot or racist as some people would have you believe i doubt many of the black or foreign stars who are in a position where they cant be seen as been ok with racism would have ever been on his show at all yet alone sit there and have him take the urine out of their car history

these people have been after clarkson for years yet i have yet to hear of any black guest on his show or person of a different creed to him make a formal complaint of racism to the police

many of the black or foreign guests have actually been back more than once

when clarkson is gone who will they target next?

that pope fella wears white way too often if you ask me and i bet they are thinking it as well lol

I am sure that he owns something like 40% of the rights, or whatever of the show.
If the BBC dump him he will soon be snapped up by another broadcaster - same show, different name. I used to watch it regularly but I found it became a little boring, will probably watch the reincarnation though.
