A FURIOUS row erupted on Good Morning Britain over the direction in which the Labour Party should go following their crushing election defeat to the Conservative Party.
Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan had to intervene to defuse the debate as the panel continued to shout over each other. Grace Blakeley, a Labour activist and Corbynista argued her party only performed badly in the election because of their backing of a second referendum. However, the rest of the Good Morning Britain strongly disagreed with this and did not hold back when disputing the claim.
Mr Morgan asked: “If the policies were that popular why has Jeremy Corbyn just taken one of the biggest political drumming in history?”
Ms Blakeley replied: “If you look at where we lost seats it was because we came out in support of a second referendum.”
Ayesha Hazarika argued: “What about Scotland Grace? What about Scotland?
“Scotland is a Remain country.
“They didn’t vote for Jeremy Corbyn!”
Ms Blakeley hit back: “What has changed between the 2017 election and this election?
“The policies are broadly the same”
Iain Dale interjected: “The fact that you’ve lost 60 seats because of those mad policies!”
Ms Blakeley continued: “The change has been the Brexit position.”
The panellists then began to shout over one another in order to get their point heard.
Mr Morgan then had to intervene at that point as the debate descended into chaos.
The Good Morning Britain host said “Everybody pipe down for a moment.
“Right here is the Labour Party’s problem.
“We have all known that this has been the simmering soar at the heart of the Labour party, where there are completely diametric camps.
“There are the Corbynesters and there are the moderates.
“There is nowhere for them to come together.”
