Now this is just too funny. Just five days ago an intrepid American filed a petition on “Whitehouse.com” asking President Obama to deport CNNs Piers Morgan. Now British citizens have filed a petition on Change.com asking that Morgan be prevented from moving back to their country (it is a lousy thing to do to a long time ally like Great Britain).
The American petition has received much press because the White House promises to respond to any petition receiving more than 25,000 digital signatures. The Deport Piers Morgan petition has received of 71,500 signatures as of this writing, but still no White House response. It reads
British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment. We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.
Apparently the British will have none of it. On Change.com, this petition was filed last night:
UK Government: Stop Piers Morgan from being deported back to the UK from America
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.
To: Theresa May, Home Secretary
Stop Piers Morgan from being deported back to the UK from America
So far the petition has only 193 signatures..but I assume as it goes viral—signatures will increase… Maybe we can send him elsewhere? Anybody have contacts in Syria?
