Piers Morgan makes an ass of himself in extraordinary row with ex-EDL leader Tommy Robinson

Piers Morgan has accused Tommy Robinson, the former English Defence League leader, of “sounding like a bigoted lunatic”.

He was interviewing Robinson on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday morning in the wake of the of the Finsbury Park attack.

As Robinson held up a copy of the Koran, Morgan told him: “Show some damn respect for people’s religious beliefs.

“You’re sounding like a complete lunatic. You’re sounding like a bigoted lunatic. You’re stirring up hatred.”

However, Robinson said: “This book is the reason we are in such a mess.”

Morgan had nothing beyond the usual lib-left grenade of bigotry.
