Nicky Morgan flounced out of an interview yesterday (Friday) when she was asked wether the government would u-turn on its £4bn plan to cut benefits to disabled people.
She was asked why during ‘Question Time‘ this week she said the Budget cuts to the most vulnerable in society were only a “suggestion”.
The TV presenter from Sky News asked: “The Chancellor says he’s committed to disability benefit cuts. Why did you say it’s a suggestion?”
Morgan said that it was a matter for press officers and walked away from the potentially embarrassing situation, but ended up making herself look fairly stupid anyway.
“Look, this is a matter very much for the government press office and I’m here to talk today about core maths. Thank you.” She then turned on her heels.
