Piers Morgan coy over country matters

In his unsurprisingly piss-poor column The Insider, in The Mail on Sunday’s Live magazine, Piers Morgan says he and Stephen Fry “haven’t really seen eye to eye since he once went on Radio 4 and invented a new word to describe murdering me”.

Sadly, Piers decided the word coined by Fry was “too rude even to repeat in this column”.

For those who may not have heard Fry on that famous edition of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, Axegrinder is happy to reveal that the word in question was “countryside”.
