It has been a difficult day for Piers Morgan, a self-described liberal, who walked off his own show when confronted with an opposing opinion on today’s GMB. In spite of writing an entire book on the importance of free and open discussion, tolerance, and freedom, it seems as though Piers was unable to practice what he preached.

Clearly the GMB host has been on a bit of a journey. When he spoke to Freddie Sayers on an episode of LockdownTV, he admitted that his interviewing style had, at times, been too abrasive. But according to Piers, what distinguished him from the ‘wokies’ was his willingness to always have a debate:

Being liberal doesn’t mean you can’t be passionate and it doesn’t mean that you can’t believe in having furious debate an argument because that’s what I love doing. The difference between me and a wokie is that I don’t think my view is the only one that can be heard and I don’t want anyone cancelled for having a different view to me. I don’t think that my view is so intransigent that actually no other view can be tolerated. It’s the cancel culture accompanying the wokedom which I think is the problem because it doesn’t help the debate.

Does Piers have some sympathy with the wokies after all?
