Wrong Piers.

I was very sad to see that the former Tory MP Piers Merchant has died. Not because I know anything about him apart from the scandal that forced his resignation, but because I initially thought it said the Piers Morgan had died so I was gutted to discover this wasn't the case.

You'll be distressed to know that there are hundreds of 'save our Piers' campaigns across the country. Most of them are quite ineffective however given their subject's ability to self-destruct.

What would America's Got Talent do without Morgan as a judge, I wonder?

'Thrive' would be my best bet.

I was doubly disappointed.

I thought the post was called "Wrong Pliers" and that it would be a hilarious tale of a DIY-disasters.

"'save our Piers' "

I thought that was the campaign against Lords reform.
