Tommy Robinson tells Jonny Gould why Piers Morgan and mainstream media are wrong on terror

Tommy Robinson has shared his view on the clash he had with Piers Morgan on live television, as well as why mainstream media outlets were wrong in how they cover terror. 

The activist, who has just published a book called Enemy Of The State, spoke to Jonny Gould about his interview with the Good Morning Britain host. 

The interview, during which the two men clashed, took place in the wake of the attack on a crowd near a mosque in Finsbury Park which killed one person and injured at least 10 others. 

In a chat with Jonny Gould, the founder of the English Defence League claimed Morgan had become scared by him in the interview.

He said: "What I found is how scared Piers and everyone in the studio got because I picked up the Quran.

“I wasn’t disrespecting it, I was picking it up and quoting it. That’s when the panic came in from them. 

"That’s what I say Islamophobia is – they are fearful of a reaction."

He went on to explain why the mainstream media narrative on terror was "wrong."
