Piers Morgan urges England fans to be ‘classy and respectful’ amid ‘hypocrisy’ claims

A second added: “Two days ago he’s saying we are coming out of lockdown too soon, clearly not following his own advice. Obviously not too concerned.”

A third penned: The man who has continually criticized people without masks, not following rules, big crowds that ‘kill people’ Cheltenham in particular. Calling people covidiots for having a view or questioning anything. Tonight is football and heyho, amongst thousands of people. Where’s truth eh?”(sic) a third person remarked.

Others sent their support for England on Piers post.

The following day, the journalist returned to social media to defend his time at Wembley Stadium.

He penned: “Very happy to attend outdoor events where everyone is either fully vaccinated or has had a lateral flow test.

“Not so happy if everything gets opened up on July 19 without such requirements, and with covid cases surging so fast + many millions still unvaccinated.”

‘Get off my TV screen’ Furious radio host rages at Dr Hilary in rant over mask ‘hypocrisy’

TalkRADIO host Patrick Christys has branded Dr Hilary Jones a “rampant hypocrite” after he was spotted not wearing a mask while watching the tennis at Wimbledon this week. Dr Hilary, who regularly appears on ITV’s Good Morning Britain and This Morning, also faced a backlash from viewers after footage of his appearance emerged. Mr Christys proclaimed that it was “one rule for them, and another rule for us” during his furious radio rant on coronavirus restrictions. 

Mr Christys said: “There is a TV doctor, Dr Hilary Jones.

“He is a suave man, he is always on your telly on Good Morning Britain or This Morning, saying we all need to wear masks in public.

“He says everyone has a deep-seated public duty to abide by the rules. Then he goes to Wimbledon, sits in the royal box and doesn’t have a mask on in a crowd full of people.

“You rampant hypocrite! Get off my TV screen. How dare you sit there in Wimbledon without a mask on, when you tell us we need to wear masks in public.”

He continued: “You’re responsible for the fear and the panic.

“You’re responsible for the fact that 70 percent of people still want restrictions to continue after coronavirus. Where do you get off?

“We should book him on the show because I’d love to have it out with him.

“It has really wound me up. It’s one rule for them, one rule for us. They are Project Fear.

“How can you say that was a Covid-secure event? Absolute lunacy, the hypocrisy of these people.”

He added: “They’re being cautious, they’re being sensible, and it’s a big, vast open-air arena.

“So these are mitigating circumstances so, you know, I obeyed the rules.

“Of course I got the negative feedback like everybody else, but I abided by the rules.

“If we live with Covid we have to use these mitigating behaviours.”

Earlier this week, an Ipsos Mori poll for the Economist found that a sizeable minority of people in the UK would be happy for Covid restrictions, including a 10pm curfew, to be in place indefinitely.

Around 70 percent of those polled said they thought the rules on wearing masks in shops and public transport should remain in place for at least another month.

Early crypto pioneer slams Elon Musk’s ‘hypocrisy’ on Bitcoin payments

The founder of one of the first physical cryptocurrency exchanges has slammed what he perceives as hypocrisy on the part of Elon Musk, after the Tesla CEO announced the electric car firm would stop accepting Bitcoin (BTC) as a form of payment.

The charges of hypocrisy levelled at Musk stem from the fact that around $ 1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin remains on Tesla’s balance sheet.

Musk criticized Bitcoin energy’s consumption in a recent tweet where he announced that Tesla had suspended vehicle purchases using Bitcoin. The sudden reversal by Musk comes just six weeks after Tesla made big news by announcing it would accept Bitcoin payments from customers in the United State.

But according to Nick Spanos, founder of Bitcoin Center in NYC and co-founder of Zap Protocol, the presence of over a billion dollars worth of Bitcoin on Tesla’s balance sheet means Musk is still willing to reap the profits of what he deems a dirty environmental hazard. Spanos told Cointelegraph:

“I challenge Elon that if Bitcoin is too dirty for him to accept as payment for his electric vehicles, then it should also be too dirty to ‘hodl’ for profits based on everyone else using it.”

“At least Climate Czar John Kerry divested from his millions in the oil industry before taking his position of virtue,” Spanos added, referring to the U.S. politician’s sale of millions of dollars worth of oil stocks prior to becoming Joe Biden’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.

One quandary posed by Spanos was the idea that if Elon Musk was truly concerned about the environment, he would allow the trade of “dirty” coins in return for clean cars. Spanos said:

“Curiously, Elon wants to deny green-conscious consumers the ability to trade their supposedly dirty coin for a clean car. That seems counterproductive.”

“A huge component of Bitcoin’s power consumption is sustainable due to the reactivation and construction of new hydroelectric sources,” reminded Spanos, hinting at the rise of renewable mining sources which some studies estimate account for over 70% of crypto mining occurs using renewables in some fashion.

Spanos referenced the attention brought on Elon Musk by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission when he was deemed to have manipulated Tesla share prices with irresponsible and ill-considered tweets.

Is Musk now subjecting Bitcoin and Dogecoin (DOGE) to the same slings and arrows of outrageous fortune that befall a cryptocurrency when a world-renowned billionaire decides to take an interest in it? Spanos asked:

“Maybe, like with his DOGE-for-Tesla tease, this is all contrived to manipulate Bitcoin’s price. Didn’t he get into trouble for manipulation of Tesla share prices?”

Dogecoin proved reactive to Musk’s tweets again on Friday after the Tesla CEO revealed he was working with developers to improve the transactional efficiency of the meme coin blockchain. The DOGE price jumped 26% in the immediate aftermath of the tweet.

‘Staggering hypocrisy!’ Piers Morgan fumes at Meghan Markle for book about father-son bond

Piers Morgan, 56, has unleashed a furious tirade about Meghan Markle’s new book, entitled The Bench, which is based on the special bond between fathers and sons. The star, who quit Good Morning Britain in March after sparking backlash from viewers due to his scathing comments about the Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, claimed the project “would make the current shortlist for the title of World’s Most Ludicrously Inappropriate Book”.
Responding to Meghan’s announcement that her debut children’s book will follow “the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life”, Piers fumed in his latest column for MailOnline: “Sorry, WHAT?

“Notwithstanding Ms Markle’s seemingly unlimited thirst for committing attention-seeking acts of gargantuan hypocrisy, this seemed beyond parody. But it was real.”

Piers then admitted he had “laughed out loud” while reading the description of the book.

He added: “I wonder how much these touching sentiments will resonate with her own family, or her husband’s?

“Lest we forget, Ms Markle has ruthlessly disowned her father Thomas and refuses to have anything to do with him despite the fact they now live just 70 miles from each other.”

Piers went on to slam Meghan’s husband Prince Harry, as he “trashed his father Prince Charles” for cutting him off financially while speaking alongside his wife to Oprah.

The outspoken journalist continued: “I don’t wish to rain on the comically sycophantic parade – but I suspect this book will become an instant historical classic for all the wrong reasons.

“The whole notion of Meghan Markle dishing out advice to anyone about the relationship between fathers and children is absolutely ridiculous given the appalling relationships she and her husband have with their own fathers.

 

“And if she really cared about father-child relationships, she would never have trashed Harry’s family on global TV in the horrible way that she did, causing yet more damage, possibly irreparably, to Harry’s relationship with his father.”

Piers has never held back when unleashing his opinions on Meghan’s actions since she and Harry made the decision to leave their lives as senior members of the Royal Family behind for a life in America.

The star was criticised for disbelieving the Duchess of Sussex when she opened up about experiencing suicidal thoughts after joining the Royal Family.

Media regulator Ofcom then confirmed it would be launching an investigation after over 40,000 complaints were made.

The huge figure has since grown to over 57,000, meaning it has become the most complained about television moment in Ofcom history. 

Just before he announced his departure, Piers stormed off the GMB set live on the show after an argument about his dismissal of Meghan’s comments with his co-star Alex Beresford.

During her explosive interview, Meghan spoke candidly to Oprah on her time as a member of the Royal Family while living in the UK with Harry and their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The Duchess of Sussex described the Queen as being “really welcoming” in one part, however, she also discussed how she felt upset after Archie was not made a prince.

She went on to claim that there were multiple conversations and concerns about “how dark” her son’s skin colour would be before he was born.

The host asked who made such a statement. However, Meghan would not reveal who it was, saying it would be “very damaging” to their reputation.
