Lord Leveson could find himself the subject of an extraordinary rendition, for stealing TV show formats from Jerry Springer.
Jerry Springer is reported to be hopping mad over obvious similarities between the Jerry Springer Show and the BBC's Leveson Inquiry which, he claimed, is 'Jerry Springer for Posh People'.
The long running Leveson Inquiry, a soap opera set in London's trendy Westminster Village, has been a massive success in Britain. Its viewing figures might seem tiny but the 1000 people who tune in every day have 99 per cent of the power and influence over the rest of the population.
Copyright experts have examined the Leveson Inquiry and found a number of similarities in format with Jerry Springer's show. Such as:
Staged punch ups
A seemingly endless cast of vulgarians
A legal host with the thinnest veneer of sympathy to his guests
A dispute between two desperate ghastly parties
A story line that nobody wants to follow
"The Leveson Inquiry is a US Talk show with a British accent. The old guy with a young chinese bride. The gerontofile who attacked old Man rupert with a custard pie made out of shaving foam, The tory MP with the face lift: that's pure Jerry Springer," said one TV producer. But legal advisors thought Springer didn't have enough of a case, unit one notorious incident.
When Wendy Deng had a stage fight with a loser from the audience, who somehow slipped past 'security', Springer decided he had a strong enough case to sue for breach of copyright.
According to experts, Leveson's production company The Royal Courts of Justice could face extradition to America, where they will be handcuffed as soon as they get off their plane, made to wear an orange jumpsuit and sent to one of Pennsylvania's meanest penitentiaries.
"I hoped we've all learned something from this," said Tony Blair.
