In response to a petition to the White House calling for the deportation of liberal political commentator Piers Morgan, the British have created a petition of their own. They don’t want him back.
The counter-petition, addressed to Theresa May, Home Secretary, is a direct response to the 70,000 Americans who have signed a petition calling for Mr. Morgan to be deported from the United States because of his strong gun-control views.
The UK petition, posted on change.org reads as follows:
“We got rid of him [Piers Morgan] 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.”
Infowars.com reports that British television personality Jeremy Clarkson has also weighed in on the controversy, tweeting:
“Americans. It took us 40 years to get rid of Piers Morgan. Please don’t send him back.” (Read More)
We could always send him to China. Or Cuba.
