Kay Burley just empty chaired Tory party chairman James Cleverly and it’s glorious

Sky News were expecting Tory Party chairman James Cleverly on the Kay Burley show today but he didn’t turn up. So Kay Burley empty chaired him and it’s fair to say she went for it. She really went for it.

Just beautifully done. And what they should do to every politician who fails to turn up (although that could be a lot of empty chairs on our screens …)

Just in case you wondered why Cleverly didn’t appear, then it might have something to do with the morning he’s had so far.

Or it might have been this.

Anyway, here are just a few of the things people were saying about it.


To conclude …
