Ever the unconventional presenter, Piers Morgan attempted an impersonation of Steve Bray this morning, taking to heckling Boris with a megaphone. It seemed to (almost) work…
Appearing on The Ben Shapiro Show, Piers Morgan launched in a spectacular rant against the new breed of illiberal ‘liberalism’ in the West, where snowflake, victimhood culture prevents real political discussion or ability to disagree in good faith. It’s an absolute must-watch…
Extraordinary panel tonight on the BBC‘s flagship political programme. Not one single panellist voted to leave the EU. A Daily Mirror hack, as well as that paper’s former editor. A Labour MP who works under John McDonnell and used to be an MEP. An SNP identikit frontbencher. And to balance them all out, the leading light of the Tory left. Wow.
Labour is trying to claim that the NHS will be sold to US corporations if a free trade deal is done with the US. It won’t and Trump has made clear that it is not even on the agenda. The NHS has been in Tory hands for most of it’s 70 year life. Spending on the NHS has risen ahead of inflation. “Save the NHS” is a tried and tested line from Labour, updated for Brexit. Still bollocks.

Sadiq Khan dropped out of a broadcast interview again this week:

What a surprise…
Prince Harry spoke to Thomas Markle about #Brexit. His father-in-law tells @GMB Harry thinks Brexit is ‘an experiment’ that ‘we have to try’.
All a little too close to the political debate for the Royal Family … pic.twitter.com/hyLDyGjaYd

Thomas Markle revealed Prince Harry is “open to” Brexit and may have been a Donald Trump supporter during a staggering television interview. Markle gave a thirty-minute interview to ITV’s Good Morning Britain during which he discusses Prince Harry’s personal politics. On Brexit he said of Harry:
“It was a loose conversation about something we have to try, there was no real commitment to it… I think he was open to the experiment.”
He also said Harry urged him to:
“Give Donald Trump a chance…I sort of disagreed with that but, er, I still like Harry. That was his politics, I had my politics.”
Asked if the Prince was a Trump supporter Markle replied:
“I would hope not now but at the time he might have been.”
Kensington Palace will be thrilled…

Brain fade moment for Diane Abbott, who was repeatedly unable to answer whether Labour would deport illegal immigrants on Good Morning Britain:
“All I can say to you Piers is that anybody watching the programme this morning will be surprised that you don’t want to talk about the immediate plight of the Windrush generation… The logical fallout from the state the immigration and nationality department is in is to try and work towards an immigration and nationality department which is much more fair and much more efficient and this is something I’m working on the nuts and bolts of.”
Remember when Diane was accusing Amber Rudd of not being across the details?
As part of its settlement with Hugh Grant, the Mirror Group has made an apology and today admitted the following (the quote is from the court statement):
“A number of its senior employees, including executives, editors and journalists, condoned, encouraged or actively turned a blind eye to the widespread culture of unlawful information-gathering activities at all three of its newspapers for many years and actively sought to conceal its wrongdoing from its many victims of intrusion. its repeated and prolonged intrusions into innocent people’s lives over, in some instances, a decade, could have been prevented or interrupted. Instead, Trinity Mirror failed to properly investigate these disgraceful actions and/or to act sufficiently when the allegations of MGN’s journalists’ unlawful activities were first alleged and publicly emerged in 2006 and when the first inquiries into these wrongdoings were made.”
I’ve never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, or published any stories based on the hacking of a phone.

This latest Tory poster looks like an easy hit on Corbyn, except… the Tories are promising an expensive bomb – Trident for the navy, which will mean less for the army. As many in the senior ranks of the army will tell you, the incredibly expensive Trident system, designed for an historic Cold War enemy, means less weapons for the army in the active theatres in which they are fighting.[…] Read the rest
Principled feminist Ewan McGregor pulled out of a TV interview with Piers Morgan this morning, tweeting: “Won’t go on with him after his comments about #WomensMarch.” Worth recalling a different interview McGregor was entirely happy to give: fawning over film director Roman Polanski, who was famously jailed for the rape of a 13-year-old girl whom he drugged and sodomised.[…] Read the rest
