It's not just about Piers. The programme bears some of the responsibility too. I felt really disheartened to see the GMB twitter account sharing the "trans-slender" video with a laughing face.

I don't watch the show, and I don't follow the Twitter account, so I didn't know they'd done that.

Yeah, I don't like that at all. It's disgusting.
Why don't you let yourself just be somewhere different?

This'll be the same Twitter account that previously "applauded" the idea of a no-deal Brexit...

They seem far too eager to get likes and views, increasingly at the expense of being a credible news outlet.

I hate all that. Editorial comments and emojis have no place in the tweets of a news programme.

Also worth noting - Kate Garraway presents a live radio show at 10am. Presumably if GMB were to run until 9am, this would have a negative effect on her radio show? (Unless the studios are VERY close together.)
Guess who's big in the back time.

Television Centre to Global is about 30-40 minutes driving although I think it can be done by tube and walk in about the same time although I believe Kate and other presenters use limo bikes

Piers is a voice of reason in these crazy times. Quite refreshing but I do worry about how much longer will he be allowed to stand for common sense on such a public platform.


I'd suggest you maybe Google his actions relating to Iain Hislop and the fake UK soldiers front cover from his time at the Mirror.

Yes, a voice of reason would have a more nuanced and open attitude to the issues of the day, not a sense of outrage about everything. What sort of reasonable person cares the Greggs sells a vegan sausage roll?


A lot of it is false anger and opinion, he has a persona and ego to maintain and keep in the public eye. Or in some cases his opinions are commercially driven, in the above case it was suggested that Morgans's PR also did the PR for Greggs
