People enjoyed Kay Burley’s comeback after she was accused of being obsessed with Tony Abbott
You may have seen Kay Burley’s interview with Matt Hancock in which she pressed the so-called health secretary about the suitability of former Australian PM Tony Abbott as a trade envoy for the UK.
“Tony Abbott is a homophobe and a misogynist”

Hancock was on Burley’s Sky News show later in the week and she asked him about it all over again.
Health Sec, @MattHancock: “Tony Abbott’s sister, who is herself homosexual, said those accusations are wrong.”

By which point some people were tiring a little of her line of questioning. Specifically, this guy.
The year is 2046. Coronavirus, civil unrest and nuclear war have ravaged the UK. Kay Burley sits in a wooden shack, in the middle of some scrubland, asking a mannequin wearing a tie if he thinks Tony Abbott is a homophobe.

It didn’t go unnoticed by the Sky News presenter, and her response went even more viral.

Hopefully the mannequin will be running the country at that point and doing a better job 🤞
