Can someone take on Morgan properly?
As Private Eye said of the phone hacking
intervention by Louise Mensch, “to grant
Piers Morgan the moral high-ground in any
argument is quite a spectacular achievement”.
Still, BBC’s Newsnight obviously decided
to go one better, using the recollections
of Heather Mills, who:
* was described by the judge in her divorce
hearing as “not just inconsistent and
inaccurate but also less than candid” and a
“less than impressive witness”.
* claimed she called off an engagement
because her fiance was gay, an M16 agent
and that his mission was to undermine her
* was told by her first ex husband he
“couldn’t marry her until she did
something about her compulsive lying”.
* won an Outstanding Young Person of the
Year award from the British Chambers of
Commerce. The award doesn’t exist.
* wrote that the owner of a jewellery
shop in Clapham gave her a job on Saturdays,
but he said “Everything she wrote about me
was lies, I never gave her a job; she just
hung around and made tea. She told me
her father was dead.”
* said she gave as much as 80% or 90% of
her earnings direct to charities. Her
tax returns “disclose no charitable giving”.
