Pugwash Pirates Get The Liver Bird

After more than 200 years, Liverpool finally gets a push-pin in the global atlas of piracy after two men in disguise attempted to board a ship on the Mersey. Actually, it’s a tiny bit of a stretch to call it piracy but it falls into the International Maritime Bureau’s current definition, one that some maritime authorities like Indonesia dispute.

The attempt failed, so these would-be Jack Sparrows got the bird and the ship’s crew are no doubt crowing over it.
