Piers Morgan’s takedown of Matt Hancock over his Covid-19 record is simply blistering
As you might have read elsewhere, Matt Hancock finally broke the government’s six-month boycott of Good Morning Britain today by agreeing to be interviewed by Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.
And after this blistering takedown of the health secretary over the government’s track record tackling Covid-19, he might wish he hadn’t.

Best part of this dressing down of Hancock is his subconscious nodding when @piersmorgan says The testing system is a complete shambles. What he him nod then catch himself and shake his head… Some non-verbal leakage there pic.twitter.com/BPoxsoRSe8

Oh this is rather brilliant. @piersmorgan and @susannareid100 using the first time a minister has been on GMB in 201 days to go back thorough the last 201 days and ask why Hancock is still health secretary and hasn't resigned
