Piers Morgan sparks outrage as he compares Covid to Hitler and the Nazi Party

PIERS Morgan has sparked outrage by comparing the impact of Covid to the deaths caused by the Nazis in World War 2.

The outspoken TV presenter, 56, said that relaxing rules on July 19th was akin to deciding to stop fighting Hitler in his latest controversial tweet.

He wrote: “Can you imagine Twitter half way through WW2?

“'I'm f*cking done with Hitler and the Nazis impinging on my liberty, so let's stop f*cking fighting them right  now and pretend they're not there any more. I want my f*cking freedom back!'”

Rising to the bait, his followers quickly questioned  the analogy, with one person writing: “I honestly can’t believe you are comparing Covid to the war, what an insult to those who fought / died and lived through it!”

Piers hit back, claiming: “Covid's killed far more civilians in the UK than WW2, and caused far greater loss of liberty.”

Another added: “Ffs. to even think about comparing the two events let alone tweet it.”

While someone else wrote: “I'm sure many of the victims of WWII and particularly the Holocaust would find that comparison to be grossly offensive.”

Piers  has been very vocal throughout the whole pandemic and has questioned the governments decisions every step of the way.

His latest rant comes after the PM today confirmed he will strip back lockdown to the bare bones of requiring people to self-isolate if they test positive or are contacted by test and trace.

All other legal limits will be ripped up on Freedom Day for a summer of fun after a gruelling year and a half of draconian measures.

The PM outlined a five-point plan to continue grappling with the virus without lockdown.

His blueprint will see ministers double down on the vaccine rollout, encourage people to make smart choices, toughen border controls, maintain quarantine and keep a close eye on the data.
