Piers Morgan defends himself after revealing he flew to Antigua for Christmas


Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has admitted that he flew to Antigua for Christmas and has defended his decision to do so following criticism on social media.

The 55-year-old has been highly critical of the government’s lockdown rules in England but he told his followers that his sunshine break to the Caribbean was allowed under Tier 3 restrictions.

Twitter account @MediaGuido had criticised the presenter’s actions, posting: “Government advice in December was not to travel unless it was essential.

“Piers was publicly calling for Christmas to be cancelled and tougher restrictions.

“He flew to Antigua first class on Virgin before Christmas Day.”

However, Piers responded on Sunday afternoon, writing: “Hi Guido, Happy New Year. 1) The Govt said travel abroad from Tier 3 was allowed if people went straight to the airport.

“2) I didn’t call for Christmas to be cancelled.

“3) I haven’t flown on Virgin for a year.

“4) I last flew First Class in February. Otherwise, spot on!”

In November, the 55-year-old said that if we had to make compromises for Christmas, “so be it”.

He tweeted: “Covid-19 doesn’t give a flying f*ck about Christmas. If we have to make compromises this year, so be it.

“We can still attend virtual church services, & still have virtual meals with all the trimmings.

“The vaccines are coming fast, let’s save as many lives as possible until then.”

  1. The vaccines is what causes the virus to mutate. Which country first issued the vaccines? England and which country first had the mutated covid-19 virus ? England! So me nah take no vaccine because it hasn’t been properly tested it was rapidly created without an actual trial ! And you want us to take it to become walking dead…

    • lol good one. I would have never imagined such conspiracy would have emerged. Is it unique to you? If so kudos!!!!

    • Viruses always mutate, it has nothing to do with it encountering a vaccine. I think you are confusing a viral infection with a bacterial one, where bacteria are treated with antibiotics, and can gain antibiotic resistance.

    • The UK is a world leader in the biotech industry, which is why they were able to detect a mutated form of Covid-19. Don’t think that this is the only country to have a mutated version. Their scientists were just ahead of the game. No one is forcing you to take anything, so continue to live in ignorant bliss!

  2. @Adolf Hitler Gaddafi Castro malema Mandela hussein….😁😀😁👉😁😀🏌️‍♂️🏌️‍♂️🏌️‍♂️#theNames! #TheNames!

  3. Oh, you people are ignorant. The vaccine doesn’t cause the virus to mutate. Don’t open your mouth if you don’t understand. Ignorance breeds ignorance. Seek out correct information.

    • England had test trials of their AstraZeneca vaccine in England and have the highest number of people with the mutated virus. They did test trials in South Africa and they have the highest number of the mutated gene in Africa. South Africa also has the highest number of covid cases in Africa. You tell me whether the vaccine is the cause of the mutations and the large number of covid cases both in South Africa and England. I have my suspicions.
