Jeremy Clarkson and his Top Gear cohorts are back in the spotlight as the trio has been forced flee Argentina.
Jeremy Clarkson and his Top Gear cohorts are back in the news as the trio has been forced flee Argentina.
The dustup started earlier this week when Clarkson was caught driving around in a Porsche 928 with a "H982 FKL" license plate which many believed was a reference to the Falklands War.
For our younger readers, the war started in 1982 when Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands which were a British territory. The British responded and eventually forced Argentina to surrender.
The conflict has always been a sore subject for Argentinians and many become incensed after hearing about Clarkson's license plate. As a result, a "mob" of Falkland War veterans attacked the Top Gear production crew as they were traveling in the host's cars near the town of Tolhuin. The details get murky from there but the police responded and reportedly escorted the crew to a police checkpoint. However, the cars were later abandoned after learning another mob had assembled up the road.
