“The reason this became such a big story is because a certain breakfast host objected to it,” she said, referring to Piers Morgan.
When Phillip squeezed it, she replied, “In the 60 seconds we have it’s a tough argument. The response to this virus was disproportionate to the deaths. “
“We are tired of the judgment”
Beverley, who is against the lockdown, continued, “Thousands of people came out.
“Especially those in the military, the ones who came out and said, ‘We fought, Captain Tom fought, we fight as soldiers to live in a free country’ and what we are seeing now is not a free country.
“We are tired of the judgment, we are tired of the curtain twitching …
“… and we’re fed up with people wanting to frolic in their neighbors who aren’t doing the right thing.”
We’re tired of the judgment, we’re tired of the curtain twitching, we’re tired of the people who want to participate in their neighbors, who are not doing the right thing.
Phillip then interjected and asked, “Are you satisfied with the (Sir Tom) statue?”
When Beverley replied with a long answer, the host said, “Well, I’m sure he would prefer if he were here to defend himself.”
Phillip ended the conversation frostily, moving on to the next point.

“Must have touched a nerve that was blocked by @piersmorgan,” she tweeted back.
“I don’t think he liked the fact that from a lot of your reactions it looks like I wasn’t completely wrong… And he doesn’t like to be wrong.
