Alex Salmond has been in the firing line of late over his decision to host a chat show on Russia Today. The former First Minister of Scotland has come under difficulty as numerous politicians have declined an invitation to appear on the channel. However, Mr S suggests he give John McDonnell a call.
David Gauke has had much fun today on Twitter, where the Cabinet minister recalled an incident that occurred on College Green on Wednesday:
‘Yesterday, on College Green, RT reporter and camera crew came up to me asking questions.
ME: I don’t do interviews with RT.
INTERVIEWER: Why not?
ME: You’re a propaganda station. Reputable politicians don’t do interviews with RT.
INTERVIEWER: We’ve just had John McDonnell on.’
Helpfully RT have shared the video of the incident online:
