Top Gear was a British television programme about motor vehicles, primarily cars. Since its relaunch in 2002, the show was co-presented by Jeremy Clarkson. In 2015, Clarkson's contract with the BBC was cancelled, leading to an online petition to reinstate him.[1]

Vernon Dursley, a noted admirer of expensive cars,[2] was a fan of Top Gear.[3] He considered Clarkson's hosting the only reason he paid for a television licence, and thus signed the petition to reinstate him.[1]
