Piers Morgan hasn’t been on Good Morning Britain for the last couple of weeks, but he marked his return with another excellent putdown of the current administration and their failings in dealing with the pandemic over the last couple of months, the type of which have characterised his time on the show during the crisis.

Morgan was speaking to Andrew Bridgen, who was appearing on the show to try and back Johnson’s new rules which have confused many people. Unfortunately for the government, he got himself in a real muddle and then got completely shut down by Morgan moments after.
This is a really good one:
Let me explain what my diatribe is, we have according to the government’s own graphs, and you can spin it any way you like the second worse death toll in the world. And that’s just the number we’re declaring of 31,000.
The real figure, according to any detailed analysis of the ONS figures is 55,000 people.
It’s an absolute national disgrace, but you compare it to almost any other country in the world.
We’ve had no PPE the NHS frontline workers account workers, that’s why 200 of them have died.
It’s an absolute national disgrace. And when you come up and say, “I heard your diatribe against Boris Johnson”.
The diatribe is because so many people have died, and so many people are continuing to die.
So don’t tell me that I’m launching a diatribe against Boris Johnson.
I’m holding Boris Johnson to account for a shambles. An absolute shambles. From start to finish. That’s what I’m doing.’
I mean you can’t really argue with that and neither could Andrew Bridgen by the looks of things either. Never thought Piers Morgan would be the one bringing the government to account every day, but there you have it. Whether or not they’ll ever have to face any accountability is another thing entirely though.
