HE MAY NOT be held in the highest regard by the public but there’s something to love about Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.

In these unprecedented times where our cabinet ministers dodge media scrutiny by refusing to give straight answers to simple questions, Morgan provides the antidote.

Take last month's interview with Matt Hancock for example.

After five minutes of the Health Secretary’s evasions, Morgan has had enough: “You know what, stop playing that game with me Mr. Hancock.

"You’re just buying yourself a bit of time!”.

Or how about that deliciously fun grilling of Conservative Party Chairman, James Cleverley, when accused of doctoring a clip of Sir Kier Starmer for propaganda purposes.

He said: “With the greatest respect you are talking a load of flannel, Mr. Cleverly – you are defending fake news.

"It's misleading and it’s a lie!”.

His approach harks back to the days of Jeremy Paxman vs Michael Howard and the infamous asking of the same question twelve times, or Eddie Maire vs Boris Johnson, when he bypassed the PM’s signature obfuscation by declaring “you’re a nasty piece of work, aren’t you?”

Piers takes matters too far

Piers Morgan and Robert Peston are the only opposition

If Morgan doesn’t get a genuine answer then at the very least he manages the small victory of highlighting the ineptitude of those in positions of power.

This should set an example to other journalists similarly frustrated in their attempts to hold slippery, dishonest politicians to account.
