She said, “I wonder if Rishi is still in power.”

Hancock was quick to respond, saying, “Yes, he will.”

It wasn’t long before Coronation Street’s Sue Cleaver asked the MP what he thought of Liz Truss’ short-lived stint as Prime Minister.

Wasting no time, she asked, “What do you think went wrong, Matt?”

To which he replied: “In a way, they were unlucky that interest rates were all going up around the world, just as they were also doing… a financial report where you say, ‘We’re going to do all this expensive stuff and we’re not going to say how we do it will pay'”.

Cleaver continued with her next question: “Where is she now?”

“Your political career is over. No ambiguity at all,” Hancock said.


Shortly after, viewers caught Hancock speaking on the Bush Telegraph, where he said, “There I sat in the comfy red chair and I felt like I was on top of Mastermind being asked all these questions.”

Journalist Charlene White also chimed in with a question, asking the MP: “Why do you think members of the Tory party have opted for the less experienced…”

Hancock said: “I think that’s all about how Boris got kicked out. It was about people seeing Rishi wielding the knife at Boris.”

White continued, “So they decided, one could argue, to punish the whole country by using someone with less experience?”

Hancock replied: “That implies a malicious motive which is not fair. But they definitely see disloyalty to Boris as a negative, a bigger factor than…”

Seann Walsh also popped a question to Matt, asking, “Were you a die-hard Boris?”

Hancock said: “Look, I was very supportive of him, but it was about time. When it was time to go, it was time to go.”
