YOU THICK GIN­GER TURD! Piers blasts Churchill slur SNP young­ster

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SHIT STORM: Green Ross Greer PIERS Mor­gan tore into a Scot­tish politi­cian in a fu­ri­ous TV de­bate af­ter he de­scribed Sir Win­ston Churchill as a “white su­prem­a­cist mass mur­derer”.

The Good Morn­ing Bri­tain host, 53, told Scot­tish Greens MSP Ross Greer: “If it wasn’t for Win­ston Churchill you would be speak­ing Ger­man and goose-step­ping your way to Holyrood.”

Piers branded Mr Greer a “nasty, sneer­ing young man” and ac­cused him of of­fer­ing “no bal­ance, per­spec­tive or any sense that what Win­ston Churchill did for this coun­try”.

Mr Greer, 24, Europe spokesman for his party, sparked out­rage with his Twit­ter rant about Bri­tain’s great wartime Prime Min­is­ter on Fri­day. It gen­er­ated thou­sands of re­sponses, in­clud­ing sev­eral from Piers who branded him a “thick gin­ger turd”.

Speak­ing on the show yes­ter­day, he de­manded to know why Mr Greer had writ­ten the tweet.

He replied Churchill was a “racist be­cause he hated In­di­ans with a pas­sion and branded them a beastly peo­ple”.

He also claimed he “ad­vo­cated us­ing poi­son gas against un­civilised tribes” in Africa.

But when he ac­cused Churchill of be­ing “re­spon­si­ble for the Ben­gali famine of 1943”, Piers let rip, roar­ing: “That is a com­plete and ut­ter lie. In the mid­dle of the Sec­ond World War Churchill is seen to be very con­cerned about the famine in Ben­gal, go­ing to Canada, Aus­tralia and Amer­ica, be­seech­ing lead­ers to help the Ben­galis.

“I get en­raged by this, be­cause if it wasn’t for Win­ston Churchill you’d be speak­ing Ger­man and goose-step­ping your way to Holyrood.”
