Piers Morgan has made a scathing assessment of Boris Johnson’s handling of the coronavirus crisis in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk. The GMB presenter branded the Prime Minister “one of the world’s biggest bulls***ters” and suggested the pandemic could prompt his Government’s downfall.
Mr Morgan told this website the Prime Minister is in “real trouble”, as he now faces criticism from all sides.
He said: “The problem he has got is that right now his handling of the pandemic has been condemned by everybody: the opposition, most of the public, his own Tory MPs.
“In an effort to try and please everybody, which is his way, he’s ended up pleasing nobody. So I think he’s in real trouble.”
The journalist said the only thing going in his favour is that he has four years until the next general election and still commands a large majority in the House of Commons.

But despite this, Mr Morgan doesn’t hold back on his criticism of the Prime Minister.
When asked what Mr Johnson’s biggest mistake has been during the pandemic, he responded: “Well I think it is easier to say what hasn’t he made a mistake on.
“I’ve never seen so many massive errors of decision making, judgement or horrendous u-turns - which should never have been wrong in the first place.”
He went on to list the failings, including the supply of PPE to frontline medics, the care home fiasco, “dithering” over when to go into lockdown, A-Level and GCSE results and the travel quarantine restrictions.
