Laura Kuenssberg shed light on the reaction former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson sparked in the Prime Minister with his pro-Brexit speech at the Conservative Party Conference in the Autumn of 2018. The BBC Political Editor suggested Mr Johsnon has rendered Theresa May "totally incandescent" after he claimed Mrs May's withdrawal agreement would abandon the UK to European rule "forever." Reviewing nearly six months of Brexit process in her programme The Brexit Storm, the BBC editor shared her immediate response to Mrs May admitting she had been "quite cross" with Mr Johnson: "Theresa May is a very controlled person.
"For her to admit ‘yeah, that makes me quite cross’ is probably what you or me would say ‘I’m totally, utterly, completely incandescent. I can’t even talk to you right now I’m so angry’."
The comment followed what social media users branded as "awkward" moments between the BBC Political Editor and the Prime Minister ahead of their interview at the Tory Party Conference in September 2018.
Sonia Sodha, deputy opinion editor for The Guardian, wrote on Twitter: "Ooh this Laura Kuenssberg/TM interview moment is awks #brexitstorm."
A member of the public commented: "F*****g hell Theresa May is even more awkward than I ever thought she could be."

However, Ms Kuenssberg also revealed the Prime Minister prefers to go discuss the "things that matter" rather than do small talk or gossip before interviews.
