BBC Question Time: Piers Morgan left to argue for Brexit ALONE against four Remainers

The Good Morning Britain presenter voted to remain in the EU in the referendum three years ago. However, he has since been vocal about how he would swing towards leaving if there was a second referendum. This means he will be the only pannellist offering the benefits of Brexit - despite still not thinking it is a good idea.

The 54-year-old will be joined on the weekly BBC panel show by Labour MP Anneliese Dodds, who used to be an MEP and worked under John McDonnell.

The panel will also include SNP MP Drew Hendry and Daily Mirror journalist Alison Philips.

The icing on the cake will be Nicky Morgan for the Conservatives, who also campaigned to stay in Brussels.

Mr Morgan has regularly criticised Prime Minister Theresa May over her handling of Brexit.

He told the Spectator: “What’s going on now is a disgrace: a House of Commons packed with Remainer MPs trying everything in its power to reverse the 2016 result or dilute Brexit so much that it ceases to resemble anything that Leavers voted for.

“I find this assault on our democracy far more sinister than anything that might befall us in the event of a no-deal departure from Europe.

“One of myriad criticisms of the hapless, hopeless, helpless Mrs May is that she doesn’t seem to have any awareness of the chaos erupting right in front of her eyes.”

Mr Morgan has also criticised Mrs May’s inability to hold her nerve during her attempts to get a withdrawal agreement with the EU.

He said: “The PM should have adopted the same attitude to Brexit that she takes to baking scones.

“When she last appeared on Good Morning Britain, I asked her if she made them with soft or hard butter.

“It’s easier if it’s hard,’ she replied. ‘If it’s hard you can get a good rub-in; if it’s too soft, it can get a bit claggy.”
