Jon Kay shut down as Shapps fumes ‘you have an agenda’ in ‘car crash’ interview

BBC Breakfast: Shapps accuses Jon of having an ‘agenda’

Conservative MP Grant Shapps shut down Jon Kay during Monday’s BBC Breakfast, telling the host “It doesn’t suit your agenda” in a heated debate. The Defence Secretary was quizzed by Kay bout the crucial Commons vote on Rishi Sunak’s flagship plan to send some migrants to Rwanda.

However, things got heated between the two and they ended up clashing with Shapps pleading with Kay to “Let me finish”. The BBC Breakfast host began: “When he became Prime Minister last year, Rishi Sunak told us that he was going to end the political chaos.

“And yet here we have a situation a year later…and genuine questions about his flagship piece of legislation. There are genuine questions about his own position as leader. You’ve got different factions of the Conservative Party fighting one another and whether they’re going to back it or not.

“You’ve got a former Home Secretary and Immigration Minister saying it won’t work. He’s spending hundreds of millions of pounds on this with nothing to show for it. If this isn’t chaos, what is?”

“I know, it sort of suits your agenda,” Shapps fired back as Kay insisted: “There is no agenda.”

The host interrupted: “I think that’s what people are asking across the country…”

“Let me answer,” Shapps fumed ashe repeated: “Let me answer, I just don’t agree with you.

“A third down in terms of crossings… slashed by a third…inflation halved, the economy growing when every commentator and body was saying that it would shrink this year.

“We are having success in these areas because yes, sometimes you have to bite these things through.

“Yes, you have arguments about them. That’s the whole point of Parliamentarians if you don’t mind me saying rather than some sort of spectacular, kind of goings on.

“But actually, the facts are we’re having success with it. We’re reducing these illegal migrations despite the Labour Party voting against every single measure and making it harder to reduce it and having no ideas.”

Viewers also took to X, formerly known as Twitter, with one branding the segment as “a car crash”.

@Matt528chap tweeted: “And Grant Shapps has had a Tory interview car crash!”

@tighabhinn noticed: “Shapps getting ‘tetchy’ with Jon Kay: ” I know this doesn’t suit your agenda but…” #bbcbreakfast.” (sic)

@HJMKent went on: “Bumbling stuff from #Shapps – as usual! #BBCBreakfast.”
