BBC journalist caught complaining on mic after Boris Johnson ‘didn’t answer’ her

Journalist Laura Kuenssberg was caught venting about Boris Johnson while her microphone was still on during the Downing Street press briefing tonight (February 10).

The BBC political editor had been asking the Prime Minister when Brits could start to plan their summer holidays and flights abroad after spending weeks in a national lockdown.

She then complained he "didn't answer the question" after he appeared to dodge it and said it was the "best I can give".

In the clip, Kuenssberg asks him: "Should members of the public be booking summer holidays or not, whether at home or abroad?

"Because the Transport Secretary this morning warned people against booking anything at all."

Johnson said a "roadmap" for plans of easing the lockdown and permitting travel would be revealed on February 22.

He tells her: "As you know it's currently illegal to go on holiday that's the state of play at the moment… in the week of the 22nd as I said we will be setting out the roadmap.

"That's the best I can give, there's not an awful long delay now between now and the 22nd but I hope that we'll be able to give some more clarity to people then."

The camera pans away from Kuenssberg, but not before she is caught complaining "he didn't answer the question".

Piers for PM? Have your say!

The Daily Star has projected an image of Piers Morgan onto the Houses of Parliament – and we’re asking you are we ready for #PMFORPM?

Last week the Daily Star jokingly asked the question on nobody’s lips: Would PM be a better PM than our current PM?

And it seems we may have inadvertently unleashed a monster. Shy and retiring Piers – no stranger to holding our politicians to account on Good Morning Britain – leapt on the idea.

His odds were slashed from 500/1 to just 20/1 in a single day.

So, are you Team Piers or Team Bozo? Take part in our survey!

Viewers were quick to notice the dig, with some discussing it on Twitter.

One person asked: "During the Coronavirus update with Boris, did anyone else hear Laura Kuenssberg moaning that 'he didn't answer my question' when they were switching to the next journalist?"

Another blasted: "I thought the 'ugh he didn't answer the question' snarky comments like a petulant schoolgirl was rude."

While a third called Kuenssberg "my hero" and added: "Boris is always dodging those difficult questions."
