Clarkson: Top Gear USA has been canned and Scottish prime minister is a “one-eyed idiot”

The Top Gear UK host Jeremy Clarkson always finds himself in very controversial situations. Not afraid to speak his mind, Scottish politicians have urged BBC to take Clarkson off air after he called prime minister Gordon Brown a “one-eyed Scottish idiot.”

During his visit to Australia, where Clarkson is going to host Top Gear Live, he accused Brown of repeatedly “telling us everything is fine” with the world in a financial crisis.

While none of this matters to us in the automotive industry, Clarkson however did mention that Top Gear USA has been banned because Americans “just don’t get it.”
