‘Can We Play Again?’ Piers Morgan SLAMS Second Referendum
Perhaps inevitably, BBC’s Question Time was dominated by the issue of a second Brexit referendum. One of the best replies to the question of whether one should be called came from Piers Morgan.
He pointed out that the show was being hosted in Islington, the heart of Arsenal Football Club. Somewhat ignominiously, Arsenal who were recently dumped out of the FA Cup Third Round by Nottingham Forest recently. “I don’t like the result of that game! I want to play it again” he demanded before being interrupted by Gina Miller.
David Dimbleby asked that he drop the Arsenal analogy but Piers pushed on:
The analogy is bleedingly obvious, you don’t get to reply a football match when you get a result you don’t like and you don’t get to replay a referendum when you get a result you like.
He added that he spoke as someone who voted Remain. He went on to quote David Cameron, speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr program;
What the British public will be voting for is to leave the EU and leave the Single Market.
“No ambiguity!” Morgan said defiantly as Gina Miller did her best to interrupt. Mr Morgan received a hearty round of applause as he finished off from an audience which may well have included a few Arsenal fans.
