Piers Morgan mocks Labour MP Barry Gardiner for appearing to fall asleep in Parliament

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan posted a clip to Twitter mocking Shadow Cabinet Minister Barry Gardiner for appearing to fall asleep in Parliament. The clip shows Barry Gardiner “nodding off” during Jeremy Corbyn’s speech. Mr Gardiner’s arm remained crossed with his eyes closed as his head slowly began to drop.

Mr Morgan posted the clip with the caption: “Another one asleep on the job.

The GMB host was referring to a clip that surfaced earlier in the day which appeared to show Labour MP David Lammy falling asleep.

However, it later emerged Mr Lammy was simply looking at his phone.

Viewers were quick to criticise and mock the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn and Barry Gardiner for the video.

“Especially if he is explaining how he’s going to improve peoples lives by ignoring their votes!”

Peter Jeffries said: “Always good to know there are people keeping a relaxed and cool head in the most important debate for decades Piers.

“So relaxed he’s fast asleep.

Addressing MPs in the House of Commons before Tuesday’s vote, Mr Johnson said: “I will in no way allow months more of this.

“If Parliament refuses to allow Brexit to happen and instead gets its way and decided to delay everything until January or possibly longer, in those circumstances the Government cannot continue with this.

“I must say that the bill will have to be pulled and we will have to go forward to a general election.

“I will argue at that election: ‘let’s get Brexit done’.”
