    Default Is Piers Morgan Talking Sense?

    In the case of 'Potatohead', I think he is: https://www.aol.co.uk/entertainment/...103848428.html

    I think he is.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    This kind of thing seems to rear is head up every few years - eg. 'New Romantics' in the '80s & 'Metrosexual' in the '90s.

    Looks like Piers has lost his job on GMB. The man does no like being challenged.
    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    He's known for public flounces, Margaret. I understand his contract was up for renewal shortly.

    I don't like him but I've never thought him stupid or impulsive. My bet is that he has something lined up and this was the perfect opportunity for some extra publicity. Even his twitter account is showing a ticking clock!

    I'm sure he will have something up his sleeve to bounce back again.
    But these kind of 'bickering at one another' shows don't appeal to me at all.

    Nor me but they do to a lot of the viewers, hence the popularity of 'reality' TV. My bet is that ITV will regret letting him go and the ratings of the show will plummet.

    Being mischievous, I wonder if Morgan's got his fingers in Andrew Neil's new pie?

    Latest I've seen, ITV has lost 200m off its value due to Piers Morgan Leaving.

    To be honest, the article I posted above is about the only time I've ever paid any attention to him. As far as I can gather, he's famous because left-wingers get wound up by him.

    He's famous for a nasty fraud when he worked at a newspaper. He would buy shares, the paper would tip them, they'd rise in price and he'd cash in.

    I also think he was allegedly involved in the press telephone hacking scandal.
