They should let Judge Jeanine Pirro loose on Piers Morgan!

  1. Crikey! Piers Morgan, or Morgan Piers as Tropical Rob has wittily re-titled him, is the living proof of that saying about a little knowledge being a dangerous thing. I suspect that any debate between him and the gonad-gripping Judge Pirro would end up like the sort of boxing mismatch that the referee stops in the first round to avoid the other contestant suffering further punishment.

    Our own commentators should realise that the UK is not the US, we don't start from the same position, that gun ownership is written into their Constitution, that they are where they are and the toothpaste is out of the tube, that a gun ban now would massively disadvantage the law abiding who want to protect themselves to the advantage of the armed criminal, and that, as the judge points out, most gun crimes involve illegally owned firearms, the one point where you can say' just like here'.

    There is a perfectly respecatable and rational argument to be had about legal ownership of semi-automatics. It's a shame that Morgan isn't bright enough to focus on it.

    1. I reckon the pro-gun lobby should agree to support Obama's reforms as long as every elected representative - including the President - agrees to forego the protection of armed guards of any description for themselves or their families at home or at their place of work (the same thing in Obama's case).

      That abysmal man John Snow was on Channel 4 News braying contemptuously via satellite at some very reasonable-sounding American right-winger the other night - "Your lot are on the run, aren't you!" he sneered, doing a very poor Jeremy Paxman impersonation. I have no idea why Americans give the time of day to ill-mannered, ignorant knobs who infest this country's politico-media elite, who can't seem to grasp that America is a foreign country with different laws and traditions to our own. I think it's the fact that we share a common language that confuses them.

  2. OT: Nice, I found this very cool Manny Pacquiao Artwork that fits well in my living room. This awesome artwork makes me feel that Manny is just in my room :)

    1. Thanks very much for the heads-up, Jessica, but I'm struggling to think of any circumstances in which I would wish to experience the sensation that Manny Pacquiao was in my room.
