Piers Morgan has become something of an outspoken critic of left-wing politics.
He has recently savaged the political left for it’s illiberal opposition to free speech and also the anti-democratic nature of the Remainer coup against Brexit.
Ash Sarkar, meanwhile, is the darling of the Corbynite left. So, when the two debated the singing of the national anthem in schools on Good Morning Britain the sparks were bound to fly;
It is telling that Sarkar cannot provide a credible answer to Morgan’s question on why she would consider it embarrassing to sing the national anthem.
Andrew Rosindale, Conservative MP for Romford is behind the idea. He accused Sarkar of representing the “politically correct far-left” that “doesn’t like Britain” and wants to “get rid of all our traditions”. Sarkar hit-back accusing Rosindale of “cheap nationalism” which prompted a fierce response from Morgan who said that the anthem makes him feel “pride in his country”.
