Piers Morgan, 56, has been extremely vocal about how important it is to follow the rules throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and it appears he agrees that the Government are taking neccessary precautions by backtracking on their plans for everything to return to normal on 21 June. Boris Johnson addressed the nation on Monday evening where he confirmed Freedom Day, as many are calling it, will be pushed back in England until 19 July, and while many are understandably disappointed by the rumours, Piers decided to share his opinion.
Not sure what their problem is?
Taking to Twitter, he was less than impressed with the number of people who opposed the decision to extend the last phase of lockdown, suggesting most of them haven’t been following the rules anyway.
“Most people raging most furiously about ‘Freedom Day’ happening next Monday, regardless of the Delta variant surge, don’t follow any Covid restrictions anyway,” he penned, matter of factly.
“So not sure what their problem is?”
But many took to the comments section to criticise the outspoken presenter for his assumption, insisting they had followed the rules to the letter.

It comes after he posted about wanting to ensure everyone has their vaccination if they are legible to do so.
“The best way to get to actual ‘Freedom Day’ is for all the anti-Vaxx halfwits to get the b****y jab,” he sighed.
Rumours that lockdown could be extended began spreading last week, with senior ministers signing off on the decision to delay the lifting of all legal restrictions on social contact.
Capacity limits will also remain for venues and events.

The news has come as a disappointing blow to the country, with Piers adding that it was a “very dumb move” to promise something that they couldn’t guarantee.
“Yes, it was a very dumb move for the Govt to brief that June 21 would be ‘Freedom Day’ when they were in no position to promise that at all, as we can now see,” he said, after being challenged by a Twitter user.
“Nobody wants to delay ‘Freedom Day’ but there will be no freedom if we don’t,” he said in a separate post.
“Boris Johnson is right to put it back a few weeks.”

Elsewhere, the former Good Morning Britain presenter slammed Boris for laying out his post-coronavirus recovery plans for the economy, calling him a “virtue-signalling twerp”.
The ITV star didn’t hold back as he blasted the Prime Minister’s plans which he shared in front of fellow G7 leaders at the summit in Cornwall, including including Joe Biden, Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron.
Boris told his fellow world leaders that the UK was looking at “gender neutral and feminine ways” to approach economic recovery following the pandemic.
But Piers wasn’t impressed at all, writing: “How can it be more gender-neutral AND more feminine, you virtue-signalling twerp?”

The PM said during his speech: “I think there is the potential to generate many, many millions of high wage, high-skilled jobs and I think that is what the people of our countries now want us to focus on.
“They want us to be sure that we’re beating the pandemic together and discussing how we’ll never have a repeat of what we’ve seen”, he added.
He went on to say that the country was looking to “build back” in more “gender neutral and feminine ways”.
He continued: “But also that we’re building back better together and building back greener and building back fairer and building back more equal and in a more gender neutral and feminine way, how about that, apart from anything else.
“So those are some of the objectives that we have before us at Carbis Bay,” Boris finished.
