Had to read up on this Mosley bugger. Sounds like he really had it in for his father-in-law.

He's hard to pigeon hole. I disagree with him on a shit tonne but you can't say Piers Morgan is a typical right ring nutter. Strongly believes in gun control in the US for instance.

Emerson said a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, but also the kind of chaotic inconistency Morgan displays is a sign of someone not really having ever thought things through. It's a good personality for his job though - he approaches each world event seemingly as a blank slate, picks a position, then becomes the most opinionated person in the world on it. He's a tabloid hack to his core.

Yep, it’s actually amusing to watch him do it to this extent. He’s also taken a “risk free” position in relation to the crisis , as it’s obvious some people will die.

I can't recall the name of the fallacy, but it's like Y2K - the effectiveness of the strategy is unfalsifiable. Morgan can never be wrong taking this position. That's actually the danger we all face as a political culture. This is unleashing the commissar apparatchik personality types amongst us, who are always waiting, lurking for such a time.

The saving grace of Morgan is that when this is over he's likely to turn on a dime and become a civil liberties extremist.

Except when he gets fired, like he did in the US.

I think Piers Morgan is absolutely right to lambast people for not taking the lockdown seriously. The guy is a RENT-A-GOB but someone in the media needs to actually throw a bit of invective about.

The suggestion there is that the media hasn't been doing that already, which really doesn't seem true

I watch a lot of BBC and Sky News are they're far too polite and respectful of their audience to use the sort of confrontational language that is Piers Morgan's stock in trade.

The exact opposite/ Funny how people project on Piers, his big views tend to be mostly left wing. He edited the Mirror after all. Piers has been on the "This is dangerous, the government has to lockdown sooner" train for weeks before it happened.

Probably about the time his flight to st Trpoez in the summer gets cancelled due to the virus. You’re correct regarding the commissars , they’re lots of them coming out the wood work.

even though the government were saying that it was a question of timing.
He was doing exactly the same as others were in the full knowledge that the lock down was coming.

He's an absolute cvnt of a man... even using his morning show to daily bully and ridicule some poor government chap because he didn't get his own way.

Try and accuse him of it on twitter using your real name and see if your wallet can handle the court case

As far as I'm aware (correct me if I'm wrong) it was never proven he knew. Plenty of editors only check if their journalists are legal proof, not who their sources are.
