Date Published: 15-Oct-2020

In 2020, the world faced its biggest crisis in a generation: a global pandemic. In the UK, it exposed deep divisions within society and laid bare a toxic culture war that had been raging beneath the surface. From the outset, Piers Morgan urged the nation to come to its senses, once and for all, and held the Government to often ferocious account over its handling of the crisis. COVID-19 shed shocking light on the problems that plague our society. Stockpilers and lockdown cheats revealed our grotesque levels of self-interest. Millenials flocked to parks for picnics, proving the rank hypocrisy of the supposedly 'socially conscious.' Attention-seeking celebrities tried to make the war about their struggle. The virtue-signalling woke brigade continued their furious assault on free speech, shutting down debate on important issues like gender, racism and feminism. Yet just as coronavirus exposed our flaws, it also showcased our strengths. We saw selfless bravery in the heroic efforts of our healthcare staff. A greater appreciation of migrant workers. The return of local community spirit, as well as inspiring, noble acts from members of the public. Wake Up is Piers's rallying cry for a united future in which we reconsider what really matters in life. It is a plea for the return of true liberalism, where freedom of speech is king. Most of all, it is a powerful account of how the world finally started to wake up, and why it musn't go back to sleep.
