So Piers, you have armed security? Do you yet see the value of firepower superior to that of your potential attackers?

Prolly not.

He’s too much of a hand-wringing bed-wetter.

Not to worry, one of those wooden stick that British Bobbys carry will thwart any death threat. He could begin to carry one of those...or he could get a gun. Just in case.

Total puff piece. With lines like THIS:

When [Percy Morgan] emerged, he found himself surrounded by 60 combat-wearing, bullhorn-wielding, rifle-waving fanatics chanting abuse.

... there can be no mistaking where the Mirror's loyalties lie.

Piers Morgan finds himself adored by millions of fans of his CNN show...

Apparently Morgan's convenient imagination is as good with ratings numbers as it is with gun facts. His viewership spiked to a whopping 255K when Alex Jones came on. It has been dropping like a rock since.

Read this the other day. Full of lies and hatred of gun owners. Millions of fans? With his ratings? How about a few thousand people too lazy to change channels?

We would like to see him go home but his own country won’t take him back.
Someone call INS? Oh, what am I thinking ... they’re busy trying on new uniforms.

Piers Morgan is an attention whore who is simply trying to drive up viewership to save his job.
