Kehinde Andrews and Piers Morgan debate gets heated

TENSE: Piers Morgan and Kehinde Andrews (Photo credit: ITV)

PROFESSOR KEHINDE Andrews and Piers Morgan got into an explosive war of words during an episode of Good Morning Britian this week.

53-year old Morgan was instantly riled up by Andrew's stance on Britain and Sir Winston Churchill, who he called a “racist” - which frustrated the Good Morning Britian host.

“He was a racist. He was someone who believed the white race was superior, the natives didn't have any right to their lands in the Americas,” said Andrews.

He then compared the former Prime Minister to disgraced children’s TV presenter Jimmy Savile who died in 2011 and received allegations of sexual abuse following his death.

Following Andrews comments, Morgan exclaimed: “You’re likening Sir Winston Churchill to Jimmy Savile?”

Andrews added: “The history of this country is built on racism, and therefore everyone involved in it probably has a racist past.”

I have a problem with that position,” Morgan said angrily. “I think it’s a load of old baloney when you say that, I think it’s a great country.”

"I understand why you say that,” Andres noted, but the broadcast journalist declared: “I’m not going to be told to feel ashamed of my country, just because you think we’re a bunch of racists.”

Morgan went on to question Andrews on why he chose to “live in this country” if he didn’t like it.

But Andrews insisted: “Where would I go that Britain hasn’t devastated?”

Despite the tense debate, the group ended up smiling and saying their goodbyes on good terms.
