Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan has taken revenge on Steve Bray, also known as Mr Stop Brexit, by using a megaphone to make him “shut up” about the UK’s long-delayed divorce from the European Union.
The Remain activist has constantly been crashing live broadcasts, including Ranvir Singh’s political segment on Good Morning Britain by repeatedly shouting over her outside Parliament, and Morgan seemingly ran out of patience.
“I’ve got a message for him. Alright Steve, shut up about Brexit! Shut up about it, nobody wants to hear from you! Be quiet about Brexit, you are not going to stop it, it’s the will of the people. Shut up! That’s it. Alright, Steve? See you don’t like it when we do it, ruining your morning. Yes you, ruining every single one of our news broadcasts. Now we are ruining yours. Mine’s bigger than yours. I have a bigger megaphone than yours Steve. Right now you are being out-megaphoned”, Morgan said to a roar of laughter from co-hosts Charlotte Hawkins and Susanna Reid.
Giggling, Reid argued that Morgan’s megaphone wasn’t bigger than Bray’s, before Steve struck back with “Revoke Article 50!”
The stunt has caused mixed reactions on social media, with many being thankful to Morgan and saying that the guy has been pretty “annoying”:

Others, however, voiced support for Steve and his stance towards Brexit:
You go Steve 😂😂😂😂— Carole Smith (@Carolesmith71Cs) 26 марта 2019 г.
Steve the remaining legend!— Tim Cooper (@greenersmile) 26 марта 2019 г.
Bray, who’s usually seen wearing a blue jacket and a ‘Stop Brexit’ top hat, is believed to have been holding protests outside Parliament for around two years now.
The development comes as the UK-EU Brexit talks are in a stalemate since the British parliament refused to endorse the withdrawal deal negotiated by Prime Minister Theresa May. The 28-member bloc has agreed to grant London a delay to the original departure date of 29 March.
Now, the UK has until 22 May if the parliament passes the deal next week, and until 12 April in case it doesn’t. Brussels has, however, signalled that it would not reopen negotiations on the deal.
