Piers Morgan rubbished the possibility of a referendum re-run
Asked if the result of the referendum would be different if the election was to be held today, Mr Morgan quickly slapped down any chance of another vote.
Mr Morgan did admit that he voted to Remain in the crumbling Brussels bloc but said the outcome of the referendum must be respected.
The former TV presenter said: “I voted Remain, cards on the table, so I’m not particular happy we are where we are, but we are where we are.
“And the whole point in democracy in a free society like ours is that when you go and vote, it really matters. It’s incredibly important how you vote in elections and referendums.
“And the point about the second referendum, this was the second referendum. We had the first one back in the mid-1970s, we voted to go into Europe. We’ve now had another one to leave Europe.
This weeks Question Time was held in Peterborough
“I don’t agree with it, but we are where we are.
“So actually, the answer to your question should be ‘don’t ask the question’. We are not going to have another referendum, and I say that with great respect to the questioner.”
The columnist compared whinging Remainers in Britain to those who have been moaning about the election of Donald Trump.

Piers Morgan admitted he voted for Remain
He added: “I have so many people I know, its a bit like with Trump in America… this kind of gnashing and wailing and weeping about demands to have another election in America, another referendum here, is frankly pathetic. We’ve all got to grow up.”
However Liberal Democrat MP Alistair Carmichael refused to let go off the possibility of another vote.
The Question Time panelist said there should be be another referendum “once we know what the shape of the deal is with the EU”.
