Hancock Mutes LBC Caller Who Labelled Him a “Totally Useless Health Secretary”

Matt Hancock is spending the day behind the LBC mic, presenting what should be a radio phone in, though it’s coming across as a prolonged party political broadcast on behalf of Rishi Sunak™. Matt was left hot under the collar at one point following some searing criticisms from a member of the public. John from Edinburgh called out Hancock’s legacy in dealing with the management of rare conditions, calling him a “totally useless health secretary”. Before too long Matt could clearly no longer take the barrage, angrily signalling for a producer to mute the call before launching into an uninterrupted rant. For the second time in recent history, Matt was unfortunately undermined by a camera he presumably forgot was running…

UPDATE: A friend of Matt Hancock’s tells Guido: “The guy was wrong, off topic and wouldn’t stop talking so Matt had no option but to signal to the team. It’s completely standard in broadcasting when someone’s hogging the airwaves.”
