L'animateur de `` Good Morning Britain '', Piers Morgan, a été accusé d'hypocrisie de niveau 4 après avoir avoué qu'il avait passé Noël dans les Caraïbes, alors qu'il avait fait des conférences sur les méfaits des voyages non essentiels pendant la crise du Covid-19. </p><div><div class="read-more large"> <p>Lire la suite <picture> <!--[if IE 9]> <video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source media="(-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2) and (min-resolution: 120dpi)" data-srcset=" https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/xxs/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae6.jpg 560w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/xs/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae7.jpg 640w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/thumbnail/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae5.jpg 920w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/m/5fd7a0c420302751ee646ae8.jpg 1080w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/l/5fd7a0c420302751ee646ae9.jpg 1536w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/article/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae4.jpg 1960w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/xxl/5fd7a0c420302751ee646aea.jpg 2480w " srcset="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAJCAQAAACRI2S5AAAAEElEQVR42mNkIAAYRxWAAQAG9gAKqv6+AwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg=="> <source data-srcset=" https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/xxs/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae6.jpg 280w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/xs/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae7.jpg 320w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/thumbnail/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae5.jpg 460w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/m/5fd7a0c420302751ee646ae8.jpg 540w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/l/5fd7a0c420302751ee646ae9.jpg 768w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/article/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae4.jpg 980w, https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/xxl/5fd7a0c420302751ee646aea.jpg 1240w " srcset="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAJCAQAAACRI2S5AAAAEElEQVR42mNkIAAYRxWAAQAG9gAKqv6+AwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg=="> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img alt="`` J'étais un Covidiot '': Piers Morgan s'excuse après avoir omis de mettre son masque en public" src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAJCAQAAACRI2S5AAAAEElEQVR42mNkIAAYRxWAAQAG9gAKqv6+AwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==" data-sizes="auto" data-src="https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/xxs/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae6.jpg" class="read-more__cover lazyload"/> </source></source></picture> <!-- noscript pattern --> <noscript> <img src="https://cdni.rt.com/files/2020.12/xxs/5fd7a0c320302751ee646ae6.jpg" alt="`` J'étais un Covidiot '': Piers Morgan s'excuse après avoir omis de mettre son masque en public"/> </noscript>
Morgan, who has used his TV platform to defend the government’s lockdown measures and level scathing accusations at “Covidiots” who rape them, confirmed a report on Sunday that he had traveled to Antigua for the Christmas holidays. .
Political gossip site Guido Fawkes revealed last week that, according to an anonymous source, Morgan traveled to Antigua in first class shortly after urging cabinet ministers on his show to introduce more lockdown measures. strict before Christmas. He left the UK just before the government announced strict Level 4 restrictions, according to the scoop, and enjoyed Christmas at an exclusive resort on a private island accessible only by boat from Antigua.
As the political site noted, Morgan maintained an unusual silence on social media over Christmas.
After avoiding the explosive story for a week, Morgan claimed the report contained many inaccuracies, while acknowledging that he had in fact taken a vacation getaway. The TV host argued that the trip did not violate any of the government restrictions when he left, and claimed he never called on Christmas. “Canceled,” as the report claims. He also denied flying first class.
Hello Guido, Happy New Year. 1) The government has declared that travel abroad from level 3 is allowed if people go directly to the airport. 2) Didn’t call the Christmas cancellation 3) I haven’t flown on Virgin for a year 4) I last flew first class in February. Otherwise, sit down! https://t.co/FvwFidHX6a

Guido took a victory lap after Morgan confirmed his story and accused the TV celebrity of engaging in “Desperate apology causing him to condemn an interview guest.” “ The site claimed Morgan ignored government guidelines on non-essential travel, even after “A year of diatribes on the Covidiots and to demand more severe lockdowns.”
The outlet also highlighted a rather judgmental statement it made in November, in which it said that Covid-19 “I don’t give a fuck about Christmas” and suggested that the British approve a “Virtual” Christmas for “Save as many lives as possible.”
Covid-19 doesn’t give a damn about Christmas. If we have to compromise this year, so be it. We can still attend virtual religious services, and still have virtual meals with all the trimmings. The vaccines are coming fast, let’s save as many lives as possible by then.

Arguing that the apparent double standard was “Beyond the Cynic”, Guido asked: “Why didn’t Piers spend a virtual beach vacation at home with a solar light, lounge chair and sandbag?”
He really must @GMB apology viewers tomorrow. No apologies for Antigua’s security or claims it was legal. It was not essential.
– Médias Guido (@MediaGuido) January 10, 2021
The gossip site called on Morgan to apologize to its viewers, insisting there was ” no excuses “ for non-essential international travel during holidays.
Countless social media users joined in on the stack, calling Morgan a hypocrite who bent the rules by shaming those who questioned the government’s Covid-19 measures.
You told us to suck if we couldn’t have the Christmas we wanted with our families. SAGE said not to travel. So who did you fly with in December ??

Finally, you admit that you broke the rules of Covid. Think that you have lost all credibility and the right to lecture, hector, and slander others because the rules don’t apply to you in your eyes. The hysteria you caused on Cummings and you did the same.

No, we are coming somewhere Piers my old son. Now that you have admired traveling to Antigua from a level 3 restricted area, please see the screenshot of international travel from a level 3 area. May I ask how you were legally allowed to travel? It meant for work or education. pic.twitter.com/FCtfVjN1wx

This is not the first time Morgan has been accused of flouting the rules he so militarily defends. Last month, he apologized after being photographed boarding a taxi without wearing a mask, violating government guidelines on coronaviruses.
It seems the Talking Head isn’t the only public figure enjoying the distant beaches as they taught the British to stay home. Richmondshire Council Chief Angie Dale reportedly issued a statement to her constituents last week reminding everyone to obey advice against non-essential travel. The advisory, however, was drafted while Dale and his family were on vacation on the Maldivian island of Kudahuvadhoo.
