WHAT a plonker. The rebel without a crust who tried to give Rupert Murdoch a pie in the face at the parliamentary hearing the other day.

Why is he a plonker when he’s only doing what half the world wanted to do?

He’s plonker because he actually did it.

Because he actually sneaked in a can of shaving foam - God knows how - and managed to almost splatter the Sky man as he answered questions about hacking and the like before a select committee.

If he can do it so can a terrorist, goes the logic.

Cue more security, fences, screening and police state checks.

One small step for pie man, a giant leap for paranoia and police-state security.
