“The Stig” has delivered a petition with nearly one million signatures to the BBC in a bid to get Clarkson reinstated following his ‘fracas’ with a producer (read that story here). Someone dressed as Top Gear’s tame racing driver caused scenes in London today by posing on top of a moving tank, as it took to the streets of Central London.
At the time of this post, the petition is just over 8,000 signatures short of the one million mark. It comes after Clarkson reportedly alleged that he had been fired, and told his charity gala audience that Top Gear used to be great, but “bosses had f***** it up”.
The BBC is refusing to confirm rumors that Jeremy Clarkson has been fired, saying BBC Scotland head Ken MacQuarrie is considering the evidence and a verdict will be reported next week.
Previous Stigs Ben Collins and Perry McCarthy have both spoken out this week, however they disagree on whether Top Gear needs Jeremy Clarkson.
