    That would reflect the nature of the questions. So vague as to be meaningless. I saw the interview in its entirety and the fact is a lot of the questions were nonsensical and unnecessarily argumentative. She says "What does 'ramping up production' mean". Well go figure. But whatever you do don't listen to the answer. I know for a fact that there are thousands of additional ventilators being produced at the moment and would have liked to hear some more meat on the bones from him rather than her constant interruptions. Pin him down by all means but at least let him answer the question before you judge his answer !

    Fair enough. Just saw it from afar and was reminded by that post.

    The questions were (a) when will we get these ventilators and (b) why hadn't you done something earlier - and same with PPE and tests for NHS staff. Answers included that Gove is heading up procurement...

    It was the odious cunt Nadhim Zahawi and he got everything he deserved.

    As for Mike Ashley I notice his latest wheeze is he has charged Newcastle United fans for next year’s season tickets already.
