Sajid Javid Convinces Jon Craig to Get Booster Jab On-Camera

As the booster campaign ramps up to fend off the Omicron variant, Health Secretary Sajid Javid appears to be doing everything he can to accelerate uptake: including convincing reporters to get their jabs on-camera. Just before his interview with Sky News’ Jon Craig outside St. Thomas Hospital last night, Javid managed to persuade Craig to receive his booster there and then, now that the gab between doses has been cut to three months. Javid even walked him into the centre…

Classic Jon Craig moment on Sky News yesterday, as he fell for a Daily Mash spoof story that Ken has a newt called Adolf. Ever the pro, Craig has corrected his error:

No, Tories Did Not Block Corbyn Grenfell Speech Coverage

Confusion this afternoon as Sky News reported the government had blocked broadcasters from filming speeches by Jeremy Corbyn and Labour MPs during the Grenfell fire statement in parliament:

The conspiracy theory was quickly spread by Corbynistas claiming a Tory plot to hide the debate from the public. A Tory source makes clear this is untrue, they had nothing to do with the decision not to broadcast the first few speeches. Turns out it was a cock-up by the parliamentary authorities, who took a while to determine the protocol for filming while parliament isn’t in session. The vast majority of the session, including Corbyn’s words, were broadcast anyway. No Fi around to send “Bunter” an angry text this time…

UPDATE: The Commons insists it wasn’t their cock-up:

“As the briefing was not a normal parliamentary proceeding, it could only be broadcast upon specific request.  The broadcast began as soon as physically possible after that request was received.”

So it was the broadcasters’ fault…
