Piers Morgan grills head of RMT union over Thunderbirds villain profile picture
Piers Morgan has doubled down on his embarrassing interview with RMT leader Mick Lynch and it has backfired once again.
As an estimated 50,000 rail workers are set to strike for three days this week, the general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers union has been busy with press interviews explaining their stance.
Appearing in an interview with Piers Morgan last week, Lynch found himself being incessantly grilled by the host about his choice of Facebook profile picture.
Morgan pulled up a screenshot of Lynch’s social media page where his profile picture is set to The Hood – a baddie from the 1960s show Thunderbirds.
Lynch confirmed that the profile belonged to him and explained the picture was an inside joke between friends because of his likeness to the character.
Morgan consistently probed Lynch on the “comparison” not so subtly implying that Lynch was also “a man about to wreak havoc on the country”.

Despite being severely mocked for his shocking level of interviewing, Morgan has reignited his obsession with Lynch’s choice of Facebook picture.
Having previously boasted about the Lynch interview going “viral”, Morgan tweeted: “For all his outraged fans’ huffing & puffing, I still haven’t had a proper explanation from @RMTunion boss Mick ‘The Hood’ Lynch as to why his Facebook profile pic (below) is an evil criminal mastermind intent on wrecking people’s lives…”
