Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is dealing with Aleppo, Yemen, Syria, Brexit and the EU, amongst other serious situations. He has been praised by journalists and the Foreign Office for the speed at which he grasps his briefs, his energy, his vision and his optimistic outlook. How sad then what happened in an interview with Sky’s Murnaghan.
Ignoring the vital and fascinating issues that Boris is dealing with, Mr. Murnaghan decided to use part of the interview for a pub quiz. Maintaining his good humour, Boris walked out.
Sky interviewers are now the poster children for fake news. Well done Murnaghan, now you have found a new way for Sky to demean itself. If you continue trying to embarrass your guests instead of discussing the vital issues that concern us all right, you aren’t going to have very long or productive interviews, are you.
