Wake Up: Why the ‘liberal’ war on free speech is even more dangerous than Covid-19

’The biggest threat to our freedom in the 21st century isn’t coronavirus but hysterically woke liberals trying to kill democracy by suppressing free speech.




’This is my clarion call, as a liberal myself, for them to stop screaming, shaming and cancelling everyone they disagree with, and start being part of the solution to global disharmony and division – not the problem.’



In 2020, the world faced its biggest crisis in a generation: a global pandemic. In the UK, it exposed deep divisions within society and laid bare a toxic culture war that had been raging beneath the surface. From the outset, Piers Morgan urged the nation to come to its senses, once and for all, and held the Government to often ferocious account over its handling of the crisis.


COVID-19 shed shocking light on the problems that plague our country. Stockpilers and lockdown-cheats revealed our grotesque levels of self-interest. Millennials flocked to parks for picnics, proving the rank hypocrisy of the supposedly ‘socially conscious’. Attention-seeking celebrities tried to make the war about their struggle. And the virtue-signalling woke brigade continued their furious assault on free speech, shutting down debate on important issues like gender, racism and feminism.
 
Yet just as coronavirus exposed our flaws, it also showcased our strengths. We saw selfless bravery in the heroic efforts of our healthcare staff. A greater appreciation of migrant workers. A return of local community spirit. And inspiring, noble acts from members of the public such as Captain Sir Tom Moore.
 
Wake Up is Piers’ rallying cry for a united future in which we reconsider what really matters in life. It is a plea for the return of true liberalism, where freedom of speech is king. Most of all, it is a powerful account of how the world finally started to wake up, and why it mustn’t go back to sleep again.

    The sub-title of this book should be ‘do as I say not as I do.’ This is a man who wants us to return to the art of reasonable debate and then go down the pub for a drink together. Except, he’ll ...

    How can Piers Morgan be so right about the horrible "cancel culture" but so wrong about pretty much everything else? No one will be satisfied reading this book, because Morgan acts like a right-wing f...

    In the normal run of things, I’d no more read a book by Piers Morgan than I would vote Tory or masturbate with sandpaper. But 2020 hasn’t given us the normal run of things, and Morgan - a right-wi...

    Sometimes life is stranger and more fascinating than fiction. I am not a huge Piers Morgan fan. My first memory of him was the judge on BGT that picked Flawless over Diversity in the final. Then I kne...

    2020 has been a strange year and Piers' book is a somewhat welcome addition to it. A strange mix of moments of Piers being quite reasonable, closely followed by either him contradicting himself or ton...

    Couldn't stand Piers until this year. Still think he's unbearable much of the time when "interviewing". But this book was fascinating, a breath of fresh air, made me think a lot and made me a Piers fa...
