How the tank?s invention was secretly plotted in a Lincoln hotel

quote [ "The panic started, everyone from 1st and 3rd Companies jumped out of the trench and ran the fastest race of his life, pursued by the merciless tank machine-gun fire which cut down many men as if it were a rabbit-shoot." ]

An interesting 5 minute read.

Piers Morgan's talk show on US TV network CNN is to end amid lacklustre ratings and an audience "tired" of a Briton weighing in on US issues.

We don't want him! Go away! You took him, you can keep the smegger!

We can compromise and send him to Oz.

Getting him there won't be easy. Tornadoes are a notoriously unreliable method of transportation.

Right-wing British newspaper editor turned American TV host, satisfying American appetites for sarcastic Englishmen, although I have a horrible feeling that by US standards he probably equates a liberal voice of conscience. Never the less, Piers Morgan comes across as an incredibly unpleasant person, and I dislike him even more for making me like Jeremy Clarkson for trying to punch him.
