Follow up -- battle of the on-line Petitions

Yesterday morning I wrote of the most important story the mind of no one...the effort of gun nuts to deport British ex-patriot and generally loathsome person Piers Morgan back to the United Kingdom.

But the Brits are not going to just sit there and take this Yankee rebellion...this time.

A group of them have gotten together and put together a petition to call "John Bullshit!" on the efforts to send Piers Morgan back to the UK.
The petition is worded less passionately than the one calling for the Briton's deportation, reading: "We want to keep Piers Morgan in the USA. There are two very good reasons for this. Firstly, the first amendment. Second and the more important point. No one in the UK wants him back. Actually there is a third. It will be hilarious to see how loads of angry Americans react."
So in summary, it is a matter of principle and this once, Piers Morgan is right.

But second, and most importantly, Piers Morgan is not in Great Britain and THAT'S the way they like Great Britain.

Turpitude, thy name is Piers.

Well, I guess we'd better start a petition to not let him come to Canada, just in case neither the US nor the UK wants him.

You know, it's actually kind of telling that the only MSM mouthpiece who dares to speak out about guns is a douchebag like Morgan.
