WATCH: Frustrated Hancock Calls Kay Burley’s Questioning “Total Rubbish” in Social Care Row

In the fallout over Number 10’s supposed cancelling of a social care reform meeting between Boris, Rishi Sunak, and Matt Hancock today, Hancock made the media round to insist social care was still a top priority for the government and all was right in the world despite the last-minute rescheduling.

Appearing on Sky News this morning, tensions soon rose between Hancock and host Kay Burley, as Burley repeatedly badgered the Health Secretary over the delay and clearly got under his skin:

Well I don’t know where to start with the total rubbish in that question Kay. Firstly, I’m absolutely not going to get into diary management. I talked to the Prime Minister every single day and we’re working very closely together on the delivery of this policy. The second thing is, we absolutely were working on the plan before the pandemic struck, but you’ll understand and your viewers will undoubtedly understand that when the pandemic struck it was all hands on deck.”
