Love that Fuk spirit is still alive. Who needs new members when middle aged blokes can get riled up about being referred to as cuts of meat. Long live FUK Cool

I enjoy how fuk manages to tackle an issue to the ground, and kick its fucking head in

It would be nice if piers kept walking, and then found a nice busy road and didn’t stop. walking out of an interview like that is the worst

This Meghan thing is classic divide and conquer distraction tactics. Remember the Tories want every decision or issue to be polarising and divisive, with only two 'sides' possible.

Some people I know see have changed their opinion on him massively this year, seems to be the only person going in hard on the Tories. He’s absolutely grilled Matt Hancock a few times.
But I agree, he’s an absolutely disgusting human being.

Are you being serious? He does exactly what ITV want him to do. Love or hate him he gets the ratings in. My wife works on good morning Britain and said as soon as the cameras are off he’s completely different. He’s just playing a character which is just a inflated version of himself.

He gets the air time cause people either strongly agree with him or hate him so much they are watching waiting for his downfall. Either way he’s laughing all the way to the bank.

You would be surprised at how many “fans” he has, maybe universally hated in you social circle but not nationwide.

Either everyone hates him on that crew or it was staged. Like the attention given to the presenter in the short skirt at the beginning of the show.
The camera was already in place for her skirt reveal, so I don’t know why she was so aggy and surprised by piers comments about it.
Unless she was playing along but protesting.

GB news soon come. Using Fox News as a blueprint.
Piers would be perfect for that. Just saying.

it was tongue in cheek; obviously he has fans (and haters) and that's why he is in the job. interesting that he acts up to it so much though. it comes across as if the hatred he spews makes up every fibre of his being. it is a very genuine "act"
