'Exasperating' Matt Hancock loses it at Piers Morgan 'What's the point of coming on?!'


Matt Hancock appeared “exasperated” during his interview on ITV Good Morning Britain according to Piers Morgan after a grilling over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The Health Secretary erupted at the host and insisted that his team should be “thanked” for their hard work during the pandemic.

Mr Hancock told the programme: “I think we should be on this programme thanking my team. They worked so hard.”

Piers interjected: “Your team have presided over a woeful handling of this pandemic that has lead to us having the worse death toll in Europe; 130,000 people dead.

“I’m sorry if my first thought when you come on Health Secretary is not to thank you and your team for your brilliant handling of the pandemic because I don’t think 130,000 deaths shows you’ve handled it well.

“I’m sorry I’m not thanking you and applauding you.”

Mr Hancock continued: “The second reason I’m exasperated and answer in this way is because as soon as I start answering this question you cut in.

“What’s the point in coming on if you’re not going to let me answer the question?”
