Piers Morgan has branded Boris Johnson ‘disingenuous’ after the Prime Minister condemned Sir Keir Starmer being mobbed by protesters. 

The Labour Party leader was rushed to safety by police when he became surrounded by mobs outside parliament on Monday. 

Many of the protesters shouted at him about Jimmy Savile after Mr Johnson linked Sir Keir with the decision not to prosecute the paedophile children’s entertainer during a fiery PMQs session last week. 

Reacting to the incident, Mr Johnson tweeted: ‘The behaviour directed at the Leader of the Opposition tonight is absolutely disgraceful. All forms of harassment of our elected representatives are completely unacceptable.

‘I thank the police for responding swiftly.’ 

However, Piers responded: ‘Crocodile words, Prime Minister. Some of it was fuelled by you falsely smearing @Keir_Starmer in Parliament with lies about his culpability over Jimmy Savile.

‘Your nasty, disingenuous words have now had direct consequences.’ 

Footage shared online showed Sir Keir walking with colleague David Lammy when he was suddenly surrounded by a group shouting abuse.

Some of the protesters were seen holding signs opposing mandatory vaccination and the use of restrictions to prevent Covid-19 deaths. 

It was understood Sir Keir was not harmed during the incident.

Mr Johnson last week accused his rival of having used his time as head of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) going after journalists and ‘failing to prosecute Jimmy Savile’, in comments he later backtracked on.

Piers initially reacted to the comment at the time, tweeting: ‘Boris Johnson told a disgusting lie in Parliament yesterday about Sir Keir Starmer ‘failing to prosecute Jimmy Savile”. He did it to deflect attention from his previous lies about Partygate. 

‘If a minister lies to the House, he has to resign.’
