When This Writer learned that a person with one of the so-called “invisible” disabilities was being victimised by Piers Morgan, I made a remark to a friend about what should happen to it and forgot about it.
But here’s the thing: this comes in a week when we’ve learned that the Department for Work and Pensions is deliberately hiding evidence that it has been victimising people with disabilities – some of them to their death.
Ministers have been seen smirking about it during debates.
And of course we’re living under a government that has actively “othered” people with disabilities, demonising them to the point where people think it is acceptable to mock, humiliate, and even attack them.
Considering all of the above, I think it would be appropriate for Mr Morgan to spend some time living with the pain of a hidden disability.
Perhaps somebody at ITV should apply a jubilee clip to Mr Morgan’s reproductive organs prior to the airing of Good Morning Britain one day, and we can all see how far he gets before the pain becomes too much.
I reckon that would constitute a fair approximation of a hidden disability.
I don’t think he’d last very long. I would like to think it might instil in him a little respect for people who have to deal with that level of pain, all over their bodies, every single day of their lives.
But that’s probably a forlorn hope, isn’t it?
Piers Morgan has been ‘inciting hate‘ against sick and disabled people after he attacked a disabled actress. Morgan claimed she was making her illnesses up.
Jameela Jamil is an actress, model, and presenter. She’s chronically ill, having had three cancer scares in recent years, several car accidents, seizures, and a nut allergy.
But her main illness is one which is still under-recognised and misunderstood. Jamil lives with one of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS).
Recently, Jamil has been the target of abuse from Morgan on Twitter… trying to claim that Jamil’s been making her illnesses up.

The basic problem as I see it is the very small percentage of ‘scroungers’ who rip off the system and present a feeble excuse for the Conservative scum to follow through with an agenda of hate and persecution. Uneducated morons with a high public profile should inform themselves ‘think’ before opening their mouths and act with a degree of responsibility. And thus not support discrimination. It is not much to ask for people in the ‘public eye’ to act with a sense of decorum, decency and responsibility.
No, the “scroungers”, as you describe them, aren’t a problem. They can be found relatively easily and there have been systems in place for decades to do just that.
The basic problem is the uneducated public school morons who act without decorum, decency and responsibility to deprive people in genuine need of the support they deserve.
Good luck finding a jubilee clip THAT small…
Forget a bulldog clip, it should be a Mole Wrench fastened to his nuts.
I like your jubilee clip idea, Mike. However, I think you can get much larger sizes of jubilee clip – think neck size – that I can’t help feeling would be more appropriate in the case of Piers Morgan…
It wouldn’t be unseen then, though. My idea was to put the clip somewhere it can’t be seen – hidden by the desk.
A really horrid sly person . . have always hated this “person” he likes to start arguments . . .
Truly Horrid . . .
Morgan wants to keep his big mouth shut just because he does not have a disability I damaged my spine when I was working and I was off work for 4 months and I lost my job over it because I could barely even walk because of the damage I had done to myself unknown to me when I seen my doctor who gave me codeine and could not get me out as fast as I got in I later found out 4 years later the doctor put down soft tissue damage on my medical records he refused to send me to hospital for a x-ray or a MRI scan. it took me over 4 years to get a MRI scan to prove I never suffered soft tissue damage my spine was still out of place I’ve got annular tears all over inside my body and because I have been left like this all my disks are now covered in DDD the spine injection I had 6 months ago never worked I still struggle to walk or carry anything because my disk has collapsed so it looks like surgery next and iam still fighting the DWP 5 years now even when they now know the real damage they still say iam fit for work because of what the original doctor wrote down on my records when my new doctor and the RVI specialist say iam not fit for work just a shame I can’t get on Morgan’s TV show I would tell him to his face and show him the copy of my MRI scan results.
