Quote:
A trailer for Jeremy Clarkson's final episode of Top Gear has been released by the BBC.

The episode will feature two films shot before Clarkson was suspended from Top Gear and eventually sacked.

Co-presenter Richard Hammond and James May return to the studio to present links from the studio, with Clarkson noticeably absent.

No date has been given for transmission, and the BBC has yet to decide how Top Gear may return.

The show was pulled from the schedules after Clarkson's suspension for attacking a producer earlier this year.

Footage shot for the three remaining episodes has now been compiled in to one extended programme.

It contains two films which, in classic Top Gear style, feature cheap bangers, caravans and a race to the finish line for the three presenters to avoid a forfeit.

You're a bit cheesed off with all of the Clarkson references I take it.

If that was in reference to the merging of the topics, it very nearly went someplace else, based on title alone.

Merged above post.

A request, please: There's DOZENS of these *larkson threads. Pick one or two. And post your updates there. Kind-of like the Jokes thread, or the In-your-ear thread. All collected in one place easy for whomever's interested to go read all at once, bookmark it, and even watch it to get emailed about updates as they happen. And equally easy for the uninterested to ignore. A better experience all around. Please.

I think it is grossly unfair to ask us to club all Clarkson threads into one. By that categorization we should have ONE thread for "USA infringes on its citizens rights" which will not only include everything Obama may or may not have done, gun violence, random libertarian crap and much more.

Americans whining about their country, which btw is a communistical paradise is really, really tiring.

And I request the mods to do the needful with US threads as well. Please.

same logic for Ohblahblah? considering over the last 8years there was micromanagement of everything his nose hair did compared to this short period of a couple of months that did not generate anywhere near the same level of threads

Most powerful position on the planet vs some tv guy.... hmmm.

And not only did I never hear you bitch about all of the Bush threads back in the day, you often contributed.

Think all you like, you can even think that we are just asking.

Try to bear in mind that the impending financial collapse of a sovereign nation has had fewer topics started about it, and those are at least mostly merged into a series of topics, the elder topic having been locked to make way for the newer.

I think you have on some rose tinted glasses. No way can you compare the volume of bush threads to Obama. At one point every other thread on the 1st page was Obama (God knows what the others pages were like).

You may laugh but that doesn't dispute it. For starters there was a period of ... Argument sake 4years, where threads where regularly detailed by some subjectively unacceptable Obama act, even when the thread had nothing todo with Obama or even America

But just a case point as clear examples are great. There was a typical thread here about Obama's latte salute and the typical Ohblahblah occurred.

Nowngo back through this board to around 2001 when bush did something similar, but with his dog. Guess what about this board? Silence. Ergo there is a stark difference between then and now.

What isn't clear is whether it is Obama focused or an increase in US politics

That's a bit hyperbolic to say there's an impending financial collapse of the said nation. I'm sure there are other lenders who'd be willing to refinance the debt of the said nation, say China.

And besides, the so called impending financial collapse of the said sovereign nation isn't quite as interesting, well maybe to accountants but compare that with foolhardy decision of an organization that considers itself the beacon of western democracies.

The said sovereign nation barely qualifies as a first world democracy anyway.

What's even funnier though are the Bushbashers who now chortle with glee when Obama does worse things.

So you think carrying a latte and a dog are equivalent? What if it was a baby? Not really a good example. Which may be noteworthy in itself.

What possibly has Obama done that is like causing over a million people to have been killed? Bush should be sent to prison for crimes against humanity

It seems as though you have some math/economics homework to do.

And sociology homework.

A latte salute and this doggy salute (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/ByQFBIeIUAAD0we.jpg:small) drew the same level of critism from the military for not showing respect, so yes they are comparable
