Boris Johnson has appointed a new Attorney General, and everyone is sharing her most embarrassing moment on TV.
Interviewed by Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy in 2017, Suella Braverman looked like she wanted to disappear into a black hole.
The Channel 4 presenter pressed the Conservative MP about the European Research Group (ERG) – a secretive hard-right cult that operates within the Tory party (of which Braverman was once chair).
Guru-Murthy pointed out that the ERG is funded by taxpayer cash, before asking Braverman which Cabinet ministers were members of the group.
After Braverman declined to comment, the Channel 4 journalist argued that, if we are all paying for the work of the ERG, we should be able to know who’s a member of it.
Braverman then flagrantly lied by saying that the list of ERG members “is all on the public record.”
Yet when Guru-Murthy asked where he could access it, Braverman couldn’t answer.
It’s a spectacularly embarrassing interview, and makes you wonder how Braverman manages to tie her shoes in the morning, never mind get appointed as the government’s Attorney General.
