Things got very heated between Sadiq Khan and Piers Morgan as the host questioned the Mayor about police cuts following the London terror attack.
London, hit with another terror attack on the evening of Saturday 3rd June, just weeks after the Manchester terror attack at one of Ariana Grande’s concerts in Manchester Arena.
A white van, believed to have been travelling about 50mph hit pedestrians on London Bridge at around 10pm on Saturday night before three men got out and stabbed people around Borough Market.
In what has been confirmed as a terror attack, seven people have been confirmed dead with at least 48 injured.
With London in a state of panic, it’s little wonder why Londoners want answers about what the government is doing to keep the city safe.
On the Good Morning Britain sofa, hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid were joined by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan following the atrocities in London and the consequent criticism from US President Donald Trump.
Piers was in no mood for a light-hearted question.
Piers grilled the politician about the number of cuts in the police force and also asked why so many known terrorists were allowed back in the country.
However, a clearly passionate Piers was not happy with the responses and constantly interrupted the major to get his pint across.
Piers intense interview comes just one day after he was praised for confronting the Culture Secretary Karen Bradley.
The star had attempted to question the politician about the number of police cuts in the last six years.
He asked her: Is there more or less police officers than when Theresa May became Home Secretary?”
However, Karen refused to answer the question and instead branded it too “simplistic”, stating that there were other factors involved.
Whilst Susanna Reid looked on awkwardly, Piers got more and more irate as the politician pointedly swerved his line of questioning.
After raising his voice and repeating the question several times, a fed-up Piers finally asked: “Is there any reason why you can’t answer the question?”
Once more, Karen dodged the bullet and instead began to discredit Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Watching the tense scenes unfold, Good Morning Britain viewers praised Piers Morgan’s determination and slated the Conservative politician for her inability to give a straight answer.
Below is a statement put out by Julia Gillard, when she was Australian Prime Minister.
Prime Minister Of Australia, Julia Gillard:
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..
Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:
'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.. Take It Or Leave It.
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '
'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'
'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society .... Learn the language!'
'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'
'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of b Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.' 'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'
