Piers Morgan is not happy about New Years Honours List

Did the gongs go to the right people?

He’s never one for not saying what he thinks, and this time is no exception.

The first one cheekily quipped about his “own shocking omission” from being recognised in the Honours list.

Maybe next year, eh?

He then went on to congratulate Barry Gibb, Eamonn Holmes and Ross King for their honours.

Piers tweeted: “Once I’d got over my own shocking omission from the #NewYearHonours list, I was thrilled to see 3 mates make the cut.

“Congrats @EamonnHolmes OBE, @TheRossKing MBE, and SIR @GibbBarry – all great guys whose talent has straddled millenniums.”

His Twitter followers were quick to react, joining him in wishing the trio congratulations.

Others weren’t quite so giving and couldn’t resist poking fun at Piers not being included in the list.

Piers then went on to question why politician Nick Clegg had been honoured instead of former Liverpool manager, Kenny Dalglish.

He tweeted: “As for the rest of the #NewYearHonours, I’m sure there’s a perfectly good reason why it’s now Sir Nick ‘Tuition Fees’ Clegg & not Sir Kenny Dalglish, wondrous footballer & man who helped heal a whole city – right?

“Because I’m really struggling to identify a single [bleeping] one.6

Fans of the Liverpool hero added their own sentiments saying:

Meanwhile, journalist Piers has already been celebrating a special award of his own after finding out earlier in the week that Good Morning Britain was the most complained about TV show of the year.
