Good Morning Britain

Return to ‘lockdown format’

I'm finding it very difficult to see how Piers's response to Adeel was bullying. Adeel took a dig, Piers responded. That response may well have been a little out of proportion, but it certainly doesn't constitute bullying.


It is all very strange, as he started it with a ‘dig’ and doesn’t like the responses and the coverage he gets from it. If you have a genuine bullying complaint ( and there doesn’t appear to be one) then surely you do it directly via the appropriate channels and not publicly on twitter. If you don’t want to work with someone because of your views towards them then great. Just don’t spend the rest of your career complaining you haven’t got work or a ‘falling through the cracks’ for government handouts.


I suppose the bullying in the instance is not actually what Piers said , but the fact Piers quoted the tweet (when originally the tweet did not tag Piers and indeed his name was censored, so Piers would have had to go looking for it) which would then mean that some of Piers twitter followers would attack the guy in the hope of impressing him.

Morgan is a public figure with a big following, so it's arguable that he should know that even if he mildly insults or ridicules someone, people will take that as a invitation to do the same thing.

Does it actually matter if Piers was tagged or censored it was obvious he was being named here. I understand he wanted to discuss an issue with his followers but by naming Piers he was asking for some kind of fall out. Also if it is causing him so much personal distress I am struggling to understand why He hasn’t deleted the original tweet?

Just as an aside, the #ExcludedUK don't want "handouts". As taxpayers, they just want the same financial support from the government that's been afforded to everyone else.

If I were employing anyone in the morning, knowing they use Twitter to give personal opinions would be a mark against them.

Given that the open letter to ITV was signed by 1,200 people including a number of heads of indies and important people in the industry I think he'll do just fine for work.


He may do very well, he may not. My opinion on Twitter would be a personal one, and I would hope those that work with me would have much the same mindset. On the other hand there are people that fully embrace Twitter and it's uses and would think I'm a stick in the mud. That's their opinion and their choice.

However, people who cause a fuss often face a backlash, even from those that supported the fuss in the first place. It's isn't fair but you do see people with histories being passed over, both in the Media and in the Workplace outside of it.

Hopefully you're correct about his future prospects.

Prob just a new credenza.

Susanna was as per usual a glorified continuity announcer doing very little bar linking into the break, I’m sure 50% of her script every morning is “you’re watching Good Morning Britain on ITV”


Given that it is very much a comedy show now, it would be good to see her doing this mid interview, Harry Hill side-glance style.

He was teasing a new desk and credenza somewhere, didn't state if it was GMB or not however.

Would seem strange to introduce such a change on a Thursday. Then again, I can't see any reason why they'd be getting rid of the credenza unless it was to replace it with something else.

I know what it is but I can't find words to explain it, 030923 may be able to.

All I'll say is...very mature 030923, very mature indeed.
