JEREMY CLARKSON SACKED FROM ‘TOP GEAR’

Now, as a huge fan of Top Gear, I know I’m not alone. Top Gear has a UK following of 6 million people, and a staggering 350 million worldwide following; which is why I am shocked the BBC and Tony Hall sacked Clarkson.
Director General Tony Hall’s speech on why he sacked Clarkson:
