PETER Hitchens put Piers Morgan in his place yesterday on Good Morning Britian in a debate over the Coronavirus lockdown.
On top of that, he notes that the seeming consensus around the coronavirus is being challenged by many qualified experts, including those of Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz Professor Sucharit Bhakdi and former Supreme Court judge Lord Sumption.
POLICE RESPONSE LUDICROUS
Hitchens also blasted Police forces for their heavy handed tactics describing them as ‘ludicrous’.
He also, he often clashed with Morgan, with expected results, culminating with Hitchens claiming that the Mainstream media had been ‘extraordinarily unanimous and complacent’, all the while his being interrupted by Piers was the latter’s ‘power’, but it wasn’t a good for him to do.
In the longer clip he brought up the fact that many of the critics of the hysteria surrounding the coronavirus were simply ‘hurling abuse’ at their opponents, and that he wasn’t ‘bothered’ by it (mainly quite rude comparisons to that of Earl Douglas Haig, of who led his troops in the First World One to be ‘slaughtered by machine guns’), and listed more doctors who were against the coronavirus consensus, like retired professor John Lee. Hitchens later thanked Morgan on Twitter for allowing him on at all. He has continued to respond to both praise and criticism of his appearance on his account on that site.
