Piers Morgan Falls Off ‘Self-Balancing’ Segway

Piers Morgan, the Daily Mail columnist who [as editor for the Daily Mirror] called President Bush an “idiot” for falling off the “sophisticated, self-balancing” Segway in 2003 recently took a ride on one himself. Naturally, he fell off and broke three ribs.

His current paper has published the video for all to see:

Rob Port, Ed Driscoll, Noel Sheppard, JammieWearingFool, Michael van der Galiën, Ace, John Hinderaker, Jan Haugland, and others have great fun at his expense.

    Piers was editor of the Daily MIRROR, the left wing paper that printed photos of British troops hitting Iraqis which turned out to be faked in Preston, Lancashire not Basra Iraq! He was sacked for that stupidity.

    The MAIL is a right wing Tory paper who hate Morgan and his ilk!

    Ah, yes. I couldn’t find a working link to the 2003 column but the Mail story linked above cites him as, “The ex-newspaper editor, now a columnist for The Mail on Sunday’s Live magazine.”
