Piers Morgan for Prime Minister! Nearly 70% of voters give him the thumbs down

With his usual modesty, Piers Morgan has answered calls for him to be Prime Minister by saying he “couldn’t do any worse” than the current Number 10 incumbent.

Online campaigns – and a front-page splash in the Daily Star – suggest GMB sofa man Morgan should replace Boris Johnson.

The newspaper calls him Britain’s “gobbiest” presenter.


It asks if his “ego could fit through No 10’s doors?

Never one to shy away from publicity, Morgan has raised his profile during the Covid-19 pandemic with a series of interviews with politicians.

Appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain Morgan, 55, today told viewers:

“It has got a ring to it, and could I do any worse is the real question.

“That’s the real calculation for the British people as they wake up this morning to this huge campaign.

“Could I do any worse?”

Sadly, nearly 70% of GMB viewers taking part in a poll don’t want Morgan in Downing Street.

Later, Morgan – who was sacked as editor of the Daily Mirror – spoke about his public image.

He said: “There’s a persona that I certainly play up to.

“I think all television is performance in a way.

“I certainly think there’s a sort of theatrical element to it as well.

“I certainly play up to that, I don’t chase around trying to be beloved, it would be a fairly lonely journey if I did.

“So, I prefer to be divisive and polarising, and get everybody going and wake everybody up in the morning.”
