The BBC was ‘humiliated’ when a Tory MP ran an egg and spoon race LIVE on television.
During the Conservative conference in Manchester, Times Radio gatecrashed BBC POLITICS Live by hosting an egg and spoon race in the backdrop.
After an egg and spoon race he hosted made it into the backdrop of BBC Politics Live broadcaster Jo Coburn’s show at the Conservative conference, Times Radio DJ Matt Chorley was obliged to apologize to her. Ms. Coburn was interviewing Jake Berry MP about income tax when the race against Andrew Bowie MP and journalist Kieran Andrews was loudly disrupted. Later, Ms. Coburn accepted their apologies.
On Twitter, she wrote: “Apologies have been accepted. I’m just cursing myself for not recognizing you two as the scurrying offenders Andrew Bowie and Matt Chorley right away.
“On air, I could have delivered some ritual humiliation!”
Ms. Coburn described the atmosphere as “lively” when the contenders dashed onto the set of Politics Live.
The couple bolted from the camera.
Meanwhile, on a Manchester street, a disability campaigner slammed Jacob Rees-Mogg, accusing him of being “just another Eton millionaire” who looks down on disabled people.
Outside the Conservative Party conference on Monday afternoon, Dominic Hutchins, who has cerebral palsy, addressed the Prime Minister on the Government’s record on disability rights.
The campaigner chastised the minister for policies he claims are to blame for his job loss as a youth worker, and he was forced to take a “humiliating” test to establish his impairment.
As he paused to speak with a 43-year-old member of the Disabled Individuals Against Cuts group, Mr Rees-Mogg calmly justified the Government’s policy as being “there to support” people.
“You’re just another Eton rich Tory who looks down on disabled people,” Mr Hutchins said.
He called the minister “shameful” and accused him of uttering “rubbish.”
“I’m sorry you believe that, but I truly do wish you well in your job search,” Mr Rees-Mogg responded.
Following the conversation, Mr Hutchins asked if he might talk with Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Mr Rees-Mogg responded, “I’m sure he’ll get your point.”
Mr Hutchins stated why he challenged the minister after their conversation.
He said he had to undergo tests three years ago to determine his eligibility for Personal Independence Payments and to “show I still have a condition.”
He explained, “I’ve been crippled since birth.” “It was quite demeaning, and it was.” Brinkwire News Summary “..
