GMB viewers switch off as Piers Morgan and Nigel Farage shout over Brexit debate

Good Morning Britain viewers were ‘switching off’ in droves today after having enough of a chaotic Brexit debate.

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Tory MP Dominic Grieve and Alastair Campbell all started shouting over each other ‘like kids arguing at the breakfast table’.

GMB host Piers Morgan added to the noise complaints by speaking over his guests, while even Susanna Reid started interrupting the trio.

Farage attacked calls for a second referendum and claimed not accepting the will of the people is a "disgrace".

He said: “We didn’t vote for this once, we voted for it twice because in a general election in the following year the same promises got made. Twice we have been lied to in the last few years.

“The will of the people is being betrayed, by an out of touch elite backed up by their big business friends. This is the most shaming thing that has ever happened in the history of British democracy.”

Susanna interjected to remind Nigel that he had backtracked on the leave campaign’s promise to give £350million to the NHS the day after the referendum result.

Alastair Campbell joined him in the debate, adding: “The country is in a mess, the country is becoming a global laughing stock.”

Tony Blair’s former spokesperson said: “I think Theresa May is incredibly strong willed until she changes her mind.”

He spoke about her “catastrophic errors” in negotiating, adding on a second referendum: “The referendum, the question has to be set by Parliament and the Electoral commission.

Realising she needed to end the debate, Susanna begged: "Please make it the final question. I can feel for the viewers. Stop talking about Brexit."

Piers claimed she was a "BOB", which stands for "Bored Of Brexit", and that she needed to get engaged in the debate.

Hitting back, Susanna insisted she was "the boss" as she called an end to the loud proceedings.

Good Morning Britain viewers took to Twitter to slam the segment.

One viewer said: "THIS is why you’re not the most watched programme. The second the shouting starts, most people turn over"

Another added: "It’s like kids arguing at the breakfast table. Too early for shouting if I wanted this I would have stayed in bed for Jeremy Kyle"

A third agreed: "Everyone shouting over each other and not letting people finish a sentence! What is the point!"
