Adil Ray totally skewered the Tory MP trying to defend the PM’s bare-faced buffoonery
Tory MP Paul Scully had the unenviable task of trying to defend Boris Johnson’s latest public flouting of Covid rules, when he faced Adil Ray on GMB.
Here’s how that worked out for him.
After the MP said people should use their 'common sense' when wearing a mask in confined areas, Adil asks 'if the PM isn't using his 'common sense, why should everyone else' pic.twitter.com/NKXe4ygcqB

Haggis_UK helpfully picked out the key exchange.
Adil Ray – Why are we not telling people to wear a mask?
Paul Scully – We want people to use common sense
Adil Ray – Boris Johnson was pictured on a train maskless… so Boris Johnson has no common sense?
PS – That's what newspapers do

Subtract 10 points from Slytherin for forgetting to say “But he got Brexit done.”
Here are a few reactions from people who understood the assignment.
I love @adilray in "taking no nonsense" mode.
It's stunning how many Tory MPs will chuck themselves and their last shreds of credibility under a bus to defend Boris Johnson. https://t.co/xIYInE41a4

Adil Ray set up Paul Scully really well, but, but if Paul Scully is pissed at that he should probably note that Boris Johnson also set him up by repeatedly not wearing a mask in public, despite it being a requirement in some places, and as Adil Ray repeatedly said "common sense". https://t.co/RqbhltUGq9

Johnson could have walked naked onto that train and licked people as he passed and this lickspittle Scully would have found an excuse for him. https://t.co/3vFUOGtJf9
