The crew of BBC's Top Gear have left Argentina after facing protests over a number plate which appeared to refer to the 1982 Falklands War.

The shows seems to get into trouble every series. I wonder if the BBC will pull the plug? The relations between Argentina and the UK haven't been good regarding the Falklands.

Personally I don't give a s--t about Argentina or any of its population but if this incident finally gets Clarkson off the air then I for one will be very happy

I remember the show in the seventies when it used to last half an hour and concentrated on the topic of cars and not as it is now with stupid stunts and the personality of Clarkson and the other presenters eclipsing the main point of the show ie cars

Channel Five's Fifth Gear is a far better show for true car fans Smile

Jeremy has said it was a 'coincidence' ...yeah right! Rolling Eyes

I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear that they did this for a bet to see if they could get away with it.

I agree, I had the same thoughts when this item came on the news! Laughing
