Clarkson hints at Top Gear exit

The presenter from Oxfordshire has suggested he may have to leave the BBC hit programme Top Gear. Writing in The Sun Newspaper the star likened himself to a dinosaur that nature had made a mistake in inventing.

He went on to say that the day must come when you "wave goodbye to the big monsters".

Clarkson's column expands on the comparisons with the animal kingdom saying that big imposing creatures on the brink of extinction, like the polar bears or tigers, had no place in a world which has moved on.

I don't intend to dwell here on what happened then or what will happen in the future. I'm sure you're as fed up with the story as I am.
