Susanna Reid defends Boris Johnson’s ‘style’ after Piers Morgan says he’s ‘losing it’

Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid, 48, and her co-star Piers Morgan, 53, took to their Twitter pages to share their views on the debate between Boris Johnson, 55, and Jeremy Hunt, 52, who are in the running to replace Prime Minister Theresa May, 62. Last night, the two hopefuls answered a series of questions in a head-to-head debate lead by Julie Etchingham, 49. During the debate, Boris mocked Jeremy for his lack of confidence in delivering Brexit. The pair also discussed the threat of a no-deal Brexit, alliances with the Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party and President Donald Trump, 73

Piers also shared various views throughout the debate in view of his 6.7 million followers.

After Boris refused to say whether he would keep Sir Kim Darroch, 65, as Britain’s ambassador to the US if he became Prime Minister, Piers tweeted: “Weak dodge by Boris on Sir Kim.

“Either back him or don’t back him. Spineless fence-sitting not a good look in a leader. #ITVDebate.”

“Does he have the temperament for the top job? #ITVDebate.”

He concluded his thoughts by insisting he predominately favoured Jeremy’s views.

He wrote: “Hunt won that debate.”

Piers Morgan added he believes Boris “started well then blew it by descending into bluster, obfuscation & question-avoidance.”

“Hunt grew in confidence, answered questions & rattled his opponent.

“All expertly moderated by @julieetchitv & directed by @errongordon. #ITVDebate.”
