Piers Morgan warns Christmas needs to be cancelled in ‘war’ against coronavirus

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has warned that Christmas should be cancelled in order to get past the pandemic.

He said that "this is our war" as he said the nation should rally behind any new restrictions and unite like we did with the first lockdown earlier in the year.

The 55-year-old spoke of the guidelines and a potential second lockdown, which is being rumoured due to the rising number of cases in the virus.

He said: "The virus does not understand the rule of six," going on to add: "The virus won't take a day off on Christmas Day."

However, the hosts did speak of the unfairness in the things the public are being told by the government.

Susanna Reid slammed the "blaming" of young people for the rise in coronavirus cases, given the mixed messages the nation has been receiving throughout the pandemic.

She reminded viewers that the nation had been encouraged to head out to restaurants, with special discounts available to them to entice them.

On top of that, schools were re-opened and people were encouraged to return to work where they could.

But, Susanna continued, Health Secretary Matt Hancock criticised people for not staying in their homes.

Meanwhile, Piers spoke of the rule of six and the exceptions, which mean a group of six children could not be taken to feed ducks in a park, but a group of 30 people could go out grouse shooting.

Then there are the new suggestions that people should report their neighbours if they break the new rule of six – and the fact that Boris Johnson downplayed it.

Home Secretary Priti Patel said that she would grass up her neighbours if she saw them in groups larger than six, while Matt Hancock said similar.

But the Prime Minister labelled it "sneak culture" and said he wasn't a fan of it.
