“I can’t believe what I am listening to. Talk about opportunist. Calling for the Prime Minister to resign because we’ve reached 100,000 [deaths].

“They didn’t call for him to resign last week when we reached 98,000.”

“Shame on the pair of you”

He continued: “No one knew about this virus and Piers is saying, ‘What did the Prime Minister do?’ Piers, you make me so angry.

“I’m ashamed to have sat in front of you and told you my life story. You don’t deserve to listen to my life story,” referring to his appearance on Piers’ series Life Stories.

Jim said: “You don’t deserve to listen to anyone’s life story because you don’t [expletive] listen.

“And now, you idiot, you just want to lay blame on the Prime Minister to make yourself look good.

“You don’t look good, you look pathetic and Susanna so do you. Shame on the pair of you.”

Jim said “instead of trying to trip the Prime Minister over”, the pair should do something to help.

He added: “Why do you think no-one comes on your [expletive] show? The Prime Minister has got better things to do.

“One of my friend’s died last night, in the middle of the night. Do I blame the Prime Minister? No.

“I thank the Prime Minister for at least allowing the situation where the NHS can try and save him.”

He concluded the message: “Piers, I’m ashamed to even know you mate. You disgust me.”
