Top Gear In Trouble? - Argentina

As many TG fans will know the boys were filming in Argentina for the Top Gear 2hour special that's to be aired at Christmas, They have caused a stir with a .... numberplate.... of all things a bloody numberplate “H982 FKL” 82 supposedly relating to the year and FKL relating to the Falkland's.

 Now people went bat shit crazy over this plate in Argentina absolute craziness and uncalled for behaviour, now I understand that lots of lives were lost on both sides and they are to be respected I also realise people are still mourning but for a number plate to stir such reaction seems moronic, It seems as though the plate was used by locals just as an excuse to go nuts.

Let's not forget Clarkson and the boys do tremendous work for Help for Heroes. Would he really insight hate over a war when he supports heroes?

Below is an extract from top gears blog :

"The truth is, however, this is most definitely not the sort of stunt we’d pull. For starters we would not base a joke around soldiers in conflict. Anybody who knows Top Gear knows how much work the presenters and the show does for Help For Heroes, and in our eyes soldiers are soldiers whatever the uniform."

Many people are saying the plate was chosen on purpose, But think how hard it would be to get hold of a plate like that, On the right car at the right time and if the plate was transferred there would be a record!
So lets look at the facts , You've got 3 we'll educated men who fight for the rights of Service men who believe a Soldier is a
Soldier no matter what the uniform and a silly mistake made - I wouldn't have noticed the plate, would you? 
 Looking at the facts I think this is just what it is a silly mistake not realised until it was too late they even changed the plates and made it a joke against Clarkson to give continuity.

 Added hype from their unjust reputation  , Means a recipe for disaster maybe this is just a case of the media , papers and the "we hate Clarkson" team trying to once again push a man too far to see if he snaps.

In summery I don't think they did anything wrong as such and in contradiction to popular belief I don't think it's their style to pull something like this , due to the fact people lost their lives in the Falkland's war , they would not make fun of something of this nature especially in one of the affected country's. This is not the same situation as the USA special.

If you want to know anymore about this I suggest you have a read here :

And for anyone interested in knowing more about the Falkland's War give this a read :

It seems as usual the media have taken things out of proportion and have even denied evidence proving them Innocent of this nothingness - People are wanting to blame Jeremy Clarkson for anything just to make themselves feel better for failing at life. Get a life and stop attacking other people! Top Gear provides hours of entertainment a year, As controversial as it may be I couldn't imagine life without it and Jeremy Clarkson, James May And Richard Hammond  are the people that make it great wart's and all.
