Piers Morgan Slams Fake Photo (No, Really)

Yesterday Media Guido posted a slap down from a Twitter user to Piers Morgan. For some reason someone got the wrong end of the stick and thought the slap had come from Team GB hero Bradley Wiggins. Their version of events went semi-viral, and Piers waded in:

Just imagine being taken in by a fake photo and publishing it?

What sort of “dimbo” would do such a thing?

      Don't get complacent...vigilance at all times says:

      Classic sign of suicide bomber or someone going to “do” something..better to arrest and hold him than let him “explode” a device or whatever…..then rather than outrage at picking on innocent bystander you’d be complaing that the police noticed him but did nothing ibn case they offended your sensibilities

        I truly hope that statement was sarcastic wit.

        No you’re right. Not smiling a classic sign of some of someone away to do something. That and texting and sweating, everybody knows suicide bombers text and sweat.

        Far better to pin everyone down and pump several bullets into their head. Especially if they’re suspiciously brown in a built up area. Then lie about them jumping over barriers after police shouting warnings. In fact lie about police shouting warnings at all. Then try to cover it up. Then smear the dead man. Then have an inquest about his death but quite flagrantly fix the outcome so no one can be found guilty.

        Feel safer just typing that.

      It was an over-reaction but as he was carrying a knife and seemingly behaving oddly (we now know it was his medical condition), it is possible to understand how the copper simply got it wrong without condemning him.

    Oh yes, I recall seeing that Tweet, although I didn’t look into it any more deeply. People be gullible.

    Go Piers, desperately papering over the sweet sweet consonant original put-down…

    “Tony Blair ‘deeply worried’ Britain will leave EU
    Former PM says UK’s exit could be sparked by too much power being transferred to Brussels.”

    Horse, gate and bolted come to mind.

      He need not worry. Mr Cameron has promised that no more powers will be ceded to the EU without a referendum.

      Of course he’s worried. He won’t get the President of Europe gig if we do leave.

      We need to lower the pylons in the south-east to encourage the electricity to run downhill from the continent. Meanwhile, we need to jack up our entrance to the tunnel and dump all our incontinent shit in it so it runs over to France.
      As for Blair, the only things he’s ever been worried about are his wallet and his pension.

    Shame Phil the Greek isn’t a young man anymore otherwise he would have twatted the c***
