Jeremy Clarkson

I am a fan of Top Gear. While I'm no car expert, I enjoy the challenges, the humorous banter and of course, the Stig.

However, it is entirely right that a person accused of what is a sackable offence should be suspended (with pay) until an investigation can establish the facts. If Clarkson attacked a producer, he needs to be sacked - he was in the Last Chance Saloon as is. He may be the BBC's equivalent of J Edgar Hoover i.e. someone you want in the tent rather than outside it, but an example needs to be made.

The show is bigger than him - if he goes (and it's a question of when, rather than if, considering his big mouth), he can and should be replaced.
