pier (n.)

mid-12c., "support of a span of a bridge," from Medieval Latin pera, of unknown origin, perhaps from Old North French pire "a breakwater," from Vulgar Latin *petricus, from Latin petra "rock" (see petrous), but OED is against this. Meaning "solid structure in a harbor, used as a landing place for vessels," is attested from mid-15c.

'One thing for sure I wish Morgan would go for a long swim up the Thames turn into the channel and head off back across the pond.'

Not a clue if this came to pass. Did my wish come true? Or IS THIS SH*T STILL DOING THE ROUNDS ON F**KED UP BRITISH TV. No idea because I do not follow this corporate C**P.
