Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway hugged MP Greg Hands’ leg into the fire alongside Adil Ray during the interview on the ITV show on Monday morning.
The Business and Energy Secretary appeared on the ITV morning show remotely from Westminster and Kate, 54, jumped straight to the point of the ongoing Partygate scandal.
This comes after it was reported last weekend that Boris Johnson allegedly poured drinks to toast his aide Lee Cain, and often urged staff to “let off steam” at storage tanks Drinks in Downing Street during lockdown.
Kate asked the MP: “Anything else MPs want to talk about tomorrow when he appears in the Commons, will they want an answer on this?”
The minister noted that the Prime Minister had apologized and paid the Partygate fine the police had handed him last week, saying: “He is taking absolutely the right course of action here.”
Kate replied noting that the public was unaware of the additional charges when Pm and Rishi Sunak received their fines.
“We were not aware of these new allegations,” she said. So, unfortunately, there will have to be more answers and more things to be said. It won’t disappear. “
The MP replied: “You say they are accusations. They are. He’ll show up later to provide those answers, so he’s doing everything you’ve asked him to do. “
Kate replied: “You would look at him and think how can you explain this? Are you concerned about fundamental damage to trust? ”
Greg Hands replied: “There is a police investigation going on. It would be a mistake if I pre-judged that. I know what I see the government doing is getting to work and making the right decisions.”
Kate later noted that the MP’s response was to go back to “not erasable before the line of inquiry”.
She continued: “One of the things he’s been working on is this idea to partially tackle immigration and refugee processing by processing them here and also being processed in Rwanda. What is your opinion? ”
The MP said “tough action is needed” and praised the government for coming up with a “new solution”, adding: “Critics have to show us what they think their alternative solution is.” what they are.”
But Kate’s co-host, Adil, raised questions about the refugee plans in Rwanda to note that many are thinking about “the life and times of Jesus” over Easter weekend. , added: “Under this plan, if he goes to the UK today, Jesus will be sent to Rwanda. Is it right? Did you send Jesus to Rwanda? ”
The congressman looked a bit confused by the curved question and laughed as he said: “I think it’s a ridiculous question. We are 2,000 years later”.
As ITV interviewers and congressman Greg Hands spoke up and spoke to each other during the interview, many viewers took to Twitter to label the segment a “car crash interview”.
One person wrote: “Loved watching Greg Hands get skewered on GMB. Not sure he has any answers, poor thing. ”
Another posted: “This show is completely chaotic with everyone shouting continuously.”
Another posted: “What an absolute disaster of an interview, with Greg Hands”, adding: “Ministers don’t answer questions!”
