So Piers Morgan has hit the headlines regarding claims he ‘bullied’ members of his production team throughout his career. Taking to Twitter to post to his 7 million follows after an anonymous letter was reportedly signed by a large number of TV freelancers and executives. https://unitynewsnetwork.co.uk/piers-morgan-responds-to-bullying-accusations-by-saying-he-is-the-victim/
But as far as I can tell he has not responded to another “open letter” sent to him/Good Morning Britain/ITV and OFCOM – in fact there seems to be a deathly silence from all of the named recipients, unless I have missed it of course.
The Tweet at the centre of the complaint went as follows:-
“Love the idea of Covid vaccine passports for everywhere: flights, restaurants, clubs, football, gyms, shops etc. It’s time covid-denying, anti-vaxxer loonies had their bullsh*t bluff called & bar themselves from going anywhere that responsible citizens go”
Part of the Open Letter from the UK Medical Freedom Alliance/Lawyers for Liberty states:-
“Mr Morgan appears not to fully appreciate that many individuals have valid reasons for not being able to have, or indeed wanting to have, the vaccine. This does not make one an “anti-vaxxer”
Individuals may be unable to have the vaccine due to “protected characteristics” such as disability, age, sex, race, pregnancy or certain medical conditions falling under the Equality Act 2010.
Furthermore, many individuals choose not to have the vaccine due to legitimate concerns about the ingredients, the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and some may prefer to use other systems of medicine to support their health.”
I do not like bullies like Piers Morgan trying to push his opinions/decisions upon others especially when they appear ill-informed and potentially discriminatory.
Where are those army of Fact Checkers when you need them?

I fell into politics quite by accident in 2014 and all because my local County Council brought in a policy switching off street lighting overnight my elderly neighbours felt vulnerable – this spurred me into action and the Right to Light Campaign was born.
I started the Right to Light Petition which garnered over 11,000 signatures enough to trigger a debate at Kent County Council. I delivered a speech in front of 88 Councillors and journalists but they refused to listen to the people and kept the lights off.
I worked closely with a local journalist who followed the campaign from start to finish, publishing articles on an almost weekly basis.
Word spread about the campaign and the Council’s refusal to listen – my phone became a hotline, I was invited onto BBC Breakfast and live radio something I would never have contemplated happening in a million years. Following a fierce 2 year battle and against all the odds streetlighting was restored throughout Kent.
Spurred on by success and having witnessed how badly represented people were at local level I joined UKIP standing as a candidate in Borough and County elections narrowly missing out on a seat by 22 votes on one occasion.
The run-up to the EU Referendum was an exciting time I joined the Grassroots Out Campaign and ran weekly street stalls delivering thousands of leaflets and meeting hundreds of people including Nigel Farage and Gerard Batten. I loved the buzz and the fun was infectious. I have been hooked ever since.
I became a prolific poster on Facebook building up relationships in many groups, I was approached by the owner of a Website/FB page called Fortis est Veritas asking if I would like to write articles to post on his platform. I have to date written 22 articles and really enjoy documenting the twists and turns of Brexit a very exciting time – we are writing history and it is essential that is fully documented.
I am very excited to now be given the opportunity to join the UNN family as a Political Analyst – the next chapter in a very exciting 5 years of my life.
