Ben Wallace joined the Good Morning Britain hosts via video link for his interview but Susanna Reid barely asked her first question before she was forced to abandon the interview. After she asked about the allegations Prime Minister Boris Johnson said “let the bodies pile high,” with regards to the coronavirus pandemic, Wallace’s response was cut off due to technical difficulties.
“Hey Susanna, can you tell me exactly who said that?” Wallace snapped.
Reid had to step in as she commented: “Oh we have a terrible connection. No I can’t tell you exact;y who has said it.
“It is a claim in the Daily Mail, this is the quote according to the source.”
As it became clear Wallace’s connection was not strong enough to continue, Reid and Ray were forced to move on.
“I think the key about that quote is it’s unsourced, it doesn’t say who said it.
“We’re getting into a space now with some of these issues that people are throwing around claims without any reference or ability to be challenged.
“The Prime Minster has denied saying that and other people around him have denied him ever saying that.
“I think what we should look at is he has spent day in and day out like many of us, trying to deliver the best response to this Covid crisis.”
