Simon Kelner: Americans give up their right to bear Piers Morgan

Agood few years ago, when the world was a different place, I was on an aeroplane with Piers Morgan on the way back from a press trip to Morocco. Also in the party was a TV personality who had his own show on Channel 4. Piers had already been defenestrated as editor of the Daily Mirror, and the first edition of his diary, The Insider, had just been published (I know this because Piers had been walking round the hotel carrying a copy to enable anyone to recognise him). Somewhere over the Med, Piers idly wondered what would happen if the plane went down. Not in the sense of the grief that would be left behind, or the tragedy of lives cut short. No, what Piers was musing on was whether it would be him or the TV star who would be the first name mentioned in the news reports. "I'm afraid you'd just be 'also on board'," he told Dom Joly (for it was he), and sat back in his seat, smiling that smug grin.
