    looks like another "concord" moment , one crash and they want to call it quits! it was wrong then and its wrong now , come on folks at the BBC , it was a accident , yes a bad accident but a accident none the less,

    As a licence payer IF they do stop it i will be voicing my complaints to the the BBC ,

    PS on a better note £139,599.00 raised so far for the air ambulance fund!

    I see one guy donated 50k !!!

    I can't believe that the Air Ambulance Service needs to rely solely on the generosity of individuals and sponsors. Fcuking shocking. The government needs a good kick up the arse, and to get the priorities straight IMO.

    TG will be back if Clarkson has anything to do with it. However you might find the show is forced along a 'safer' route in future by the suits at the BBC.

    Have signed the petition to save Top Gear and bring back a decent motoring programme instead of the current Fifth Gear whose content in the current series is utter crap and fronted by bloody amateurs.

    Chris,
    Of all the TV ( Car proprammes ) presenters Tiff Needell in my opinion is up there with the best, but the current 5th Gear series is fronted by a stupid giggly female ( don't doubt her driving ability ) and some clown from Sky who hosts a Saturday morning football programme. The programme was much more professional when fronted by Plato/Needell and the other (fat ) chap..forgotten his name.
