Don't hit people. How hard can it be?The BBC has decided to drop Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear, following some sort of altercation between him and a producer over food being served at the end of a days shooting.More Like This
Very little information has actually been released about the incident. It’s only ever been referred to as a “fracas” in the media and “a bit of a dust-up” by Clarkson’s co presenter James May.
I’m a huge fan of the show and Clarkson’s style of presenting, but if he punched a member of the crew because his food wasn’t hot then axing him is the right decision. There’s a huge difference between an unbroadcast, antiquated, school-yard rhyme (one of Clarkson’s previous “offences”) and physical violence.
Will Top Gear be the same without him? No it won’t. Will Top Gear survive his departure? Yes it will.
