Jeremy Clarkson For British Prime Minister?

We're big fans of Top gear as most readers already know, but we're not sure if we'd put host Jeremy Clarkson in the driver's seat out of our country. A petition on the web site of the current PM Gordon Brown is calling for Brown to step down and make Clarkson the new chief. The petition is gaining steam, with more than 30,000 signatures, outshining a petition to, for instance, build more skating rinks in local areas, which we all know could be a make-or-break issue for the current administration.

While we would like to see them throw out the current stable of official Jags in favor of the Caparo T1, we'd miss his automotive insight and witticisms on Top Gear. Let's also marvel at a country where the top politician actively seeks out the sentiment of the governed. [Reuters via Yahoo]
