This morning’s BBC Breakfast show was hosted by John Kay and sports presenter Sally Nugent, and the pair were joined in the studio by former Shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham.
Speaking out about the current issues commuters are facing with Northern and Thameslinks trains, the Greater Manchester mayor explained that the situation was “certainly not” getting any better.
During the interview, John asked Andy if he should take some responsibility for the situation as a board member.
Andy replied: “Absolutely, and I will and I am stepping forward saying ‘let’s have a plan’,” but John interjected and spoke over him.
“You’re blaming the government, you’re blaming everybody else, some people would say you have to take some of the responsibility yourself,” John argued, whilst Andy was silenced waiting for the host to finish what he had to say.
Viewers were frustrated and took to Twitter to criticise John and Sally's presenting.
One said: “Why are them pair having a go at Andy Burnham? #bbcbreakfast.”
