BBC refuses Argentinian ambassador’s demand to apologise for Top Gear ‘Falklands War number plate’ row

Clarkson and the Top Gear team were forced to flee Argentina this summer after the outspoken presenter was spotted driving around the country with a number plate believed to reference the Falklands War of 1982

The BBC has refused to apologise to the Argentinian ambassador after Jeremy Clarkson drove through the country with a number plate which was thought to reference the Falklands War.

The Top Gear cast and crew had to flee the South American country after they were attacked by an angry mob, which Clarkson described as ‘the most terrifying thing I’ve ever been involved in.’

Alicia Castro, the Argentinian ambassador to the UK, demanded an apology from BBC head of television Danny Cohen during a meeting this month – which the corporation has now refused to give.

In a letter to Ms Castro, Mr Cohen said the BBC would also go ahead and broadcast the programme.

He said: ‘We will ensure that these programmes are a fair representation of what took place throughout their stay.’

BBC taking a stand??? Islam cannot be involved, we know that much — and it isn’t.
