“Top Gear” host Jeremy Clarkson is not to face prosecution for his “fracas” (ie an alleged assault upon a producer) after a “victim lead” and “routine enquiries” had been completed by Police.
But the entertaining and mischevious Clarkson is still fired from the BBC’s top show.
Clarkson has been providing some good fodder for lawyers and the public alike of late. He called in the lawyers last month as well in respect of apparent comparisons made inside the BBC between Clarkson and the now infamous and serial paedophile Jimmy Savile.
Clarkson instructed lawyers to demand an immediate retraction from the Corporation after the scurrilous allegations were spread by highly-placed BBC sources and he also sought an investigation into who had leaked the appalling slur upon him.
The Savile reference was evidently regarding the corporation and others turning a blind eye to his actions, which in Clarkson’s case have largely involved a catalogue of comments that have been hilarious to many and offensive to some.

Some 31,000 people complained after Clarkson joked that public sector workers taking part in a 24-hour strike should be “executed in front of their families”. The BBC was later forced to apologise.
