Take the blinkers off will you?

Morgan asked the "woke weatherman" the question.  He calmly responded by suggesting that Morgan had a personal vendetta against Meghan based on an article that Morgan had written in the Daily Mail.  There were no raised voices, no lies, just a simple statement of fact.  Morgan immediately tried to shutdown the statement but when he realised that he couldn't do it without implicating himself more he stormed off.  

His behaviour is pathetic.  His track record of abusing his position is pathetic.  The only thing I have agreed with Morgan's approach on is holding the even more pathetic UK Government to account and particularly the tw#t that is Matt Hancock.

pretty sure woke weatherman suggested that Piers had an affair and been dumped by Markel.

Find it fascinating how much of an uproar this has caused while Prince "He who cannot sweat" is mooching about still noshing a 10" deep dish

He said what we’re all thinking. “Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government”

The whole thing is bollocks from start to finish. A fully produced and scripted interview with each line crafted for effect by Hollywood P.R. agents and lawyers; all directed, choreographed, costumed,

I think the truth of the matter is far more sinister than that. As long as these rumour stories are printed and jumped upon, the less chance that the truth will ever be uncovered.

He’s in with some ‘interesting’ bedfellows is Mr Morgan.

The internet and google are your friend.  Full transcript of what was said by Alex Beresford;

"There has been an alarming amount of negative press.  I watched the programme yesterday and yes they had some great press around the wedding, but what press is going to trash someone's special day?  There was bad press around the engagement, before the engagement, and everything that has followed since has been incredibly damaging, quite clearly, to Meghan's mental health and also to Harry.

I hear Piers say that William has gone through the same thing, but do you know what, siblings experience tragedy in their life and one will be absolutely fine and brush it off, and the other will not be able to deal with it so strongly.  That's clearly what has happened with Prince Harry in this situation.

He walked behind his mother's coffin at a tender, tender age in front of the globe.  That is going to shape a young boy for the rest of his life.  So I think we need to all take a step back, and I understand that you don't like Meghan Markle [Piers] - you've made it so clear a number of times on this programme, a number of times.

I understand you've got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one, and she cut you off.  She's entitled to cut you off if she wants to.  Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don't think she has, but yet you continue to trash her."

The phrased used is "personal relationship".  Now I would interpret that as being a way of differentiating from a "professional relationship" but I guess you chose to hear "sexual relationship".  Thank god I am not your friend!

as you rightly say, GIYF

A personal relationship refers to close connections between people, formed by emotional bonds and interactions"  - A professional relationship is an ongoing interaction between two people that observes a set of established boundaries or limits that is deemed appropriate under governing ethical standards

So yes, Beresford knew exactly what buttons to press.

Piers's description has it as a slidding doors moment. There were interactions on Twitter. Met up for a drink. Afterwards she left in a taxi to a party where she met Prince Harry. Stops interacting with Piers on Twitter. From toad to prince without the need for a kiss.

Bizarre! He's an outspoken broadcaster, who attacks "woke culture" and "snowflakes". He presents a program that includes an exchange of opinion. He gets called on his and can't handle it. But now the challenge is all part of a "BLM agenda" where people "know which buttons to press", and now people are acting like he was a victim of an ambush. Straight out of the Stu Peters playbook.

Guess what..

Friendship refers to the "emotions of conduct of being friends" or "a relationship between friends".  Doesn't that sound very close to you definition of a personal relationship?

You could therefore use those two phrases interchangeably fairly easily without too much of an issue.  Clearly Morgan though he and Meghan were friends (maybe he hoped for more?) and Meghan merely saw Morgan as a useful professional contact to promote her work.

It is not unusual in a business relationship to meet a key contact for a meal, not specifically to discuss work, but as a way to cement a professional relationship.  Given that Meghan was in London to see Serena Williams (a friend) and then go to the place where she me Harry maybe it seemed logical for her to meet with Morgan.

Of course, once she had met Harry I suspect that the Royal family would not take kindly to her continuing to socialise with Morgan.  They probably thought that he would use her for inside information.  I rather suspect that this is exactly why Morgan has an issue with her. 

Once she got close to Harry he was probably gutted that she would no longer meet with or speak to him.  Effectively he just lost a huge source of insider information at the Palace that he could have used to further his own career.  

It would hardly be the first time he had done something similar would it?

Fair bit of supposition there my friend

Which rather ties in with Meghan's description of the institution being controlling of her personal autonomy and viewing everything through the lens of how it would play in the media.

And so is your assertion that Alex Beresford was looking to trigger Morgan.  As I said initially Alex was perfectly calm when he said what he said.  Morgan looked dumbfounded and couldn't answer.  

Surely you can see, as Declan does, that this would fit with the Palace controlling Meghan's autonomy?

Exactly, just imagine how much mileage Morgan would have made out of this.  Interesting that he also seems to have free and easy access to Meghan's father who tied to make money from the paparazzi on the back of her relationship with Harry.

Imagine if they'd remained friends and instead of Oprah it had been Piers life stories that ran that interview. What do we think his take on it would have been?

If I automatically assume that those who rail against 'the woke' are massive racists, does that make me a prejudiced as them?

He ticks several boxes for GMB so Piers had no chance there anyway.

What? The Weatherman is less expendable to ITV than the host that boost ratings?

He's not white. He's not straight.  Two boxes ticked and of course it wouldn't take much for people to accuse Piers of bullying.

Easy call to see Piers going.
