This story may not have anything to do with F1 but it has more comments than any other story today or in the last few days, apparently it was correct to put it here. Just like the people who get offended, if you don't like it don't watch or don't click on the story.

What offends me most is the rubbish us natives have to put up with by the 'outsiders' in our own country trying to take over. I've been abroad and you follow their ways not try and change them

If someone is 'offended' by Top Gear humor, it shows how f*cked up this society really is. If you don't like European humor, move back to your sandholes. F*ck political corectness!

Dressing up as another religions God, Jesus, is offensive, too.

Monty Python is also offensive.

It's also great entertainment.

Why is only one group complaining and why are we putting up with it?

It always amuses me when religious folk complain about such stupid things causing offence to their precious beliefs, but will happily ride over anyone who believes something different. It offends me when women are stoned to death for having an affair, or that young boys can be sodomised by the people who have been trusted to care for them and have the church that allowed it to happen cover for their abuser. I think some degree of perspective needs to be brought to all this rubbish that is religion. Fix your own mess before trying to clean up other harmless acts. Everyone has the right to be offended and to cause offence, but having a religion does not remove the possibility of being offended. They really should GROW UP!

In the first place, the burka is cultural and not religious. In the second place it was funny! To the shows complainants, get a life and get over it!!
