Not a lot springs to mind!

I am not too sure.

I think his MO must be to court controversy. It pushes up ratings. The fact that some of us don’t watch him matters not a jot. He’s popular. Look at how many people tune into Jeremy Kyle (or did I’m not sure if it is still on). My aunt 80y used to love it every morning. I stayed with her once for 4 nights and my toes would be curling with embarrassment!

Piers Morgan says it how he finds it. That’s allowed, free speech and all.

I think a lot of people are tired of what they perceive as ‘wokeism’ hence they like him.

I don't.

NellG Fri 12-Mar-21 14:10:39

I try not to.

What do I think to Piers M? Norra (not) a lot
Jeremy Clarkson ? Comment not suitable for the ears of the sensitive and small children.

Namsnanny Fri 12-Mar-21 14:25:11

Am I mistaken, or was there another thread about him?

Smileless2012 Fri 12-Mar-21 14:30:15

I've never watched him barraging interviewing anyone.

Do I think he was wrong for what he said? No. Trisha Goddard said if you get a dog because you know it will bite there's no point in complaining when it does.

ITV knew what he was like when they employed him and IMO saying on TV that you don't believe a word that comes out of someone's mouth, is not as bad as attempting to tarnish an entire family as racist.

Egotistical bully springs to mind

BigBertha1 Fri 12-Mar-21 14:32:46

I dont think I have ever thought about him.

EllanVannin Fri 12-Mar-21 14:37:45

I've never watched GMB since Richard and Judy left. All I read about that lot who present the programme is that they are a self-satisfying bunch of attention-seekers and that, I can't stand.

BlueBelle Fri 12-Mar-21 14:41:03

There is an identical thread and at the moment they are sitting next to each other on my timeline

Artaylar Fri 12-Mar-21 14:44:21

I'm probably in a minority (of one?) in that I don't really mind him. Yes, he can a bit of a pillock, and no I don't agree with him on issues 90 plus % of the time. I did think he was pretty good on calling out Govt in the first lockdown, and also calling out Trump during the pandemic last year - it made up a bit for that truly awful a...e licking interview he did with Trump some years back.

What do you think?

So good they named him twice ?

Lucca Fri 12-Mar-21 14:52:59

As bluebelle says there is already a thread about him anyway.

LadyGracie Fri 12-Mar-21 15:00:55

I don't mind him. He speaks his mind.

Do you remember when we could do that and not have to think of every word we were saying so as not offend anyone.

Ah yes the good old days when we could be offensive and get away with it eh?
the days when men could pinch a woman’s bottom and it was all just good fun eh

Jaxjacky Fri 12-Mar-21 15:33:44

Don’t particularly like him, but he’s entitled to his opinion.

timetogo2016 Fri 12-Mar-21 18:44:24

Agree Lady Gracia:
Lucca,seriously ?.
What about when women did the same in pinching mens bottoms and they laughed it off,
And being offensive is only if YOU find it offensive but it could just be an opinion.
Free speech only doesn`t exist to some.
And it tends to be for some people that have had a damn good life.

Blossoming Fri 12-Mar-21 18:57:30

Scheveningen is my favourite pier. Never been a Morgan fan.

Galaxy Fri 12-Mar-21 19:03:13

Has someone offended you timetogo?

Blossoming Fri 12-Mar-21 19:10:55

I have never pinched men’s bottoms. I feel I am missing out.
