The Mayor of London, Sadiq Kahn was shut-down by Piers Morgan for stating that budget restraints had kept him from monitoring 400 people with suspected terror ties, in London.

“You are the mayor of the capital city where the most recent terrorist attack has taken place. How many of those 400 have come back to London?” co-host Susanna Reid asked.

“The estimate is just over half,” Khan admitted.

“Where are they?!” Morgan yelled. “No, seriously, where are they?”

“How are we letting people back into the U.K., who haven’t just been trained,” Reid asked, “they’ve actually fought, potentially against our troops, how are we letting them back in without knowing exactly where they are and what they’re up to. Because out of all the thousands of people that we’re concerned about, surely those who’ve actually gone to fight are the biggest risk.”

“That’s one of the reasons why it doesn’t make sense for the government to be cutting resources,” Khan responded.

“But where are they, you’re the mayor of this capital city, where are they?” Morgan interjected.

“Well, hold on, I can’t follow 400 people, what I can do…” Khan protested.

“Why can’t you instruct the police?” Piers interrupted, “why can’t you call [Met Police Chief] Cressida Dick right now and say ‘everyone of those people who’s come back from a war zone who’s in London, I want them followed.’”

“Let me say why,” Khan responded. “Because the Met Police budget, roughly speaking, 15% to 20% is funded by me the mayor. The rest comes from central government. If the Met Police budget is being shrunk and reduced, then you got to prioritize and use their resources in a sensible, savvy way.”

“What could be a bigger priority than people coming back from a Syrian battlefield with intent to harm British citizens?” Morgan demanded. “Why is it not the number one priority?”

“Why are these people just allowed to come back in, in the first place, and then the London mayor doesn’t appear to have a clue where any of them are!” he added, “I mean, no disrespect to you, but where are they?”

“Well,” Khan said, “that’s one of the questions that obviously the police…”

“But you’re the mayor!” Morgan implored. “Sadiq, you’re the mayor of London!”

“But this chap here,” Khan explained, “the three men responsible for the attacks on Saturday night hadn’t come from overseas, they were, for all intents and purposes, integrated into our way of life.”

Recently, Britain had attracted a string of terror attack that have put elected official on defense in regards to whether they’re doing enough to protect their citizens.

Editor-at-large at the Daily Mail, Piers Morgan, slammed the mainstream media for the lack of attention it has given to terrorist bombing of Coptic Christians in Egypt. In his comments to Tucker Carlson on Monday, Morgan said the terrorist attack on Christians in Egypt received little attention, compared to other attacks in the West, from the western media even though the event was “unbelievably significant.”

“I think unfortunately if it happens in the Middle East,” he explained, “this kind of atrocity, it just does not seem to attract the kind of media attention in America that it would if it happened, as we’ve seen in the attacks in Sweden, the last few days, in London, two weeks ago, I was there for that. Huge attention in the American media. You know, in Paris, in Nice, these get huge attention.”

“And yet what happened in Egypt was unbelievably significant,” Morgan continued. “You know if you look at what ISIS really stands for, what they are carrying out in the Middle East, and in Egypt in particular, is a kind of genocidal attack on Christians and Christianity. They want Christianity eradicated, and they want to convert all Muslims to their crusade, they want it to be a Holy War, and they want Christians gone.”

“And I don’t think that narrative is getting the attention it should get in the American media,” he concluded, “and I have to say in other media around the world.”

Morgan was asked why it appears to him that it’s impolite to mention attacks on Christians in the Middle East, despite the West being defined by Christianity.

“Right, I mean ISIS couldn’t be more transparent,” Morgan answered. “On the attack in St. Petersburg last week, they made it absolutely clear that this is a war against the cross. They said that. That is what the statement said. They are at war in their heads, with Christianity. Not just with Christianity, they are at war with all other religions as well.”

“But they have been singling out, in increasingly virulent terms, their real war now is against Christians and the cross,” he added.

“Now I think this is a huge story,” Morgan concluded. “This is the kind of story that ought to be dominating cable news, in America. It should be dominating headlines around the world. The press in America should be full of headlines about this.”

Two Coptic Christian churches in Egypt were attacked by terrorists as they were celebrating Palm Sunday. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks in statement released soon after. The death toll currently stands at 44 with many more critically injured.
