Don’t cry for Jezza, Argentina. Although the truth is, that’s a bit unlikely.
The Top Gear Patagonia special ended on a sour note last night when a mob, angered by a number plate they took to be a reference to the Falklands War, chased the crew across the border. It made for heart-stopping television and Twitter weighed in.
Reaction was mixed. Some objected to the behaviour of the nationalists…
While some thought the Top Gear team brought it on themselves
Regardless, there was much praise for the film crew, usually hidden behind the camera
And tributes to the country of Argentina
And elegies to the real victim in all this
But there was one conspicuous absence
Some say, he can smell trouble coming a mile away…
