Michael Gove’s interview with BBC Breakfast stunned Dan Walker as much as it did the rest of the internet. Escalation Secretary had everyone talking about his presence on Wednesday’s episode by doing a series of strange impressions.
Dan appeared to be parodying a character in Harry Enfield’s ’90s sketch Scouss when he and co-host Sally Nugent Goff asked if there would be an emergency budget to help with the cost of living crisis.
As he accuses pundits of misinterpreting the PM’s words as “huge, big, big news!” the senior Conservative lawmaker also appears to be dabbling in American accents.He also became particularly lively when he brought up the subject, saying in a different accent: “This is not an emergency budget!” When footage of the interview went viral,
Dan responded on Twitter, admitting: “I’ve seen our interview a few times. “I’m still trying to figure out what happened,” he wrote. “I wish Mr Goff all the best.” I’ve seen our interviews a few times. I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on. As well as being commented online, Gove’s interview has drawn criticism from Labour’s deputy leader Angela Rayner “Is the cost of living crisis just a joke to you? This is not a serious government. We need an emergency budget now,” she tweeted.
