Piers should ‘go after’ ITV for ‘unfair dismissal,’ according to Britons.
PIERS MORGAN’S remarks against Meghan Markle were upheld by the media watchdog Ofcom. The overwhelming majority of readers on this page agreed that he should reclaim his spot on Good Morning Britain (GMB). Should Piers join GB News now that ITV has indicated he will not be rehired?
Piers Morgan has apparently been “inundated” with employment offers following Ofcom’s ruling that his statements did not violate the journalistic code of conduct. In a poll of 11,720 people conducted from 11 a.m. on September 1 to 1 p.m. on September 2, a staggering 87 percent of voters stated they wanted Piers to return to GMB.
However, ITV executives have stated that he will not be rehired.
“Piers opted to quit Good Morning Britain, we accepted his decision, and we have no current plans to invite him to broadcast Good Morning Britain,” an ITV spokesperson stated.
“On Life Stories, we’ll keep working with Piers.”
“He should never have been compromised because of his ideas, he’s an incredibly clever journalist, even when he’s irritatingly harsh, he believes something and then sticks to it,” an Express reader added.
“He should never have departed; he was the program’s glue!”
Some readers believed Piers was forced to quit unfairly.
“He should sue ITV for constructive dismissal,” one person suggested.
“Piers should take the channel to the cleaners for wrongful dismissal and major reputation damage!” said another.
“Yesterday he tweeted ‘Does this mean I get my job back?’, ITV effectively declared yesterday he’s not coming back,” Susanna Reid said on the breakfast show on Thursday morning.
“I’m happy Ofcom has validated my freedom to mistrust the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s explosive assertions to Oprah Winfrey, many of which have shown to be false,” Piers stated in the tweet. This is a big win for free expression and a big loss for Princess Pinocchios. “Will I be able to keep my job?”
“I’m not sure Piers really wants to come back now,” said Kevin Maguire, Associate Editor of the Daily Mirror.
Piers’ wife, Celia Walden, was also interviewed on GMB and was asked if he has a job lined up.
“He’s got some irons in the fire,” she explained.
“To put it that way, I don’t think he’ll be kicking around the house for much longer.”
Piers said in an interview, “I’ve.” Brinkwire Summary News
