Matt Hancock joined Dan Walker and Louise Minchin via video link from Reading today to discuss the ongoing row surrounding free school meals during the holidays. With Boris Johnson under pressure to perform a U-turn on the issue, it was a major talking point Dan was keen to put to Mr Hancock, especially with Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford’s ongoing campaign gaining support. But despite Dan putting the questions to the MP, not everyone was impressed with the BBC Breakfast interview.
Taking to Twitter, one BBC Breakfast viewer said: “Matt Hancock on BBC Breakfast this morning is the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever watched.”
“Hancock doing the usual car-crash interview on @BBCBreakfast. Man is hopeless,” opined a second.
While a third commented: “I see someone handed Matt Hancock a shovel before his interview with BBC Breakfast this morning. He never seems to know when to stop digging himself into a hole does he?”
Others took issue with Dan’s interview style, with another fan suggesting: “Hancock must love coming on #BBCBreakfast . Such an easy ride.”
