Today’s rare double, trans-Atlantic wedgie

We’ll trade ‘im for a bust of Churchill and a future draft choice.

Brits have responded to the petition calling on the White House to deport Piers Morgan for his anti-second amendment stance by lodging a petition of their own with UK Home Secretary Theresa May entitled ‘Stop Piers Morgan from being deported back to the UK from America’.

The original petition to deport Morgan for his unconstitutional rhetoric following the Sandy Hook school shooting has now achieved almost 70,000 signatures, well beyond the 25,000 required to mandate a White House response.

However, a counter-petition which features on the change.org website calls on the UK government to prevent Morgan from returning to the UK.

“We got rid of him once and why should we have to suffer again. The Americans wanted him so they should put up with him. We washed our hands of him a long time ago,” the petition reads. [more]

    Well, to quote the line when the Blue Brothers played at Bob’s Country Bunker, “Ya don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here!”

    apo,
    Clarkson?! Attaboy!
    He’s usually such an America-tweaker,
    always giving Richard Hammond a hard time ’cause he like American stuff.
    (What? Well, yeah, Clarkson could just be wayyy anti-PiersM. I can see that.)

    Doug,

    Despite all Clarkson’s bloviating ’bout those “awful ‘murrican cars,” don’t forget he bought one of the very first Ford GTs off the line.

    He’s a dick about everyone’s cars. It’s part of the act.

    If I thought we could kick people outta the country with a petition, I would have submitted my list of candidates a while ago. It’s longer than Santa’s naughty list.

    I try not to be a trouble maker & rabble rouser, BUT,
    I think Jeremy Clarkson is so popular & well known, that
    he could get a ‘petition war’ going ’bout the Piers Morgan
    deportation bruhaha! He is definitely not against ‘events’
    that are good publicity for him & ‘Top Gear’. He could
    prolly get a million signatures if he wanted! 1812 all
    over again! ‘Course with Obozo in the WH, we’d lose
    this time, just like 9/11/12 Benghazi!

    apo (8)
    I wasn’t referring to his opinion of American cars.
    He occasionally engages in the ol’ tweak-America-to-feel-superior schtick.
    Sure, it’s harmless fun; but it is there.
    (What? NO, I AM NOT FRIGGIN’ OVERSENSITIVE!)

    I know… He loves to play Superior Twit Brit. But I’ve also heard him say that it was nice to visit America and be in a Free Country for a coupla weeks.

    Then, years later, he said it was nice to return from America and be in a Free[er] Country. Then shake his head sadly….

    Gave me chills.

    He’s what the Aussies call a “pommy bastard” – the sort of self-righteous, pomade-sniffing Limey that made starving a crime.

    I don’t watch telebisshion so I don’t have to endure him!
    I also don’t want to waste 2 seconds thinking about that
    arrogant, ego-maniacal, smug POS!

    Britain:
    Remember that ‘burning the White House thing in 1812? No hard feelings.

    Oh, here’s your Morgan back.
