Boris Johnson speaks live on Good Morning Britain for the first time in nearly five years.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson was interviewed by GMB’s Susanna Reid, on May 3. It is the first time that he has spoken on the show in several years.
Susanna quizzed the PM on Russia’s war on Ukraine and the fact that Boris will be the first Western leader to talk to the Ukrainian parliament. She also asked about Russia threatening to target UK politicians.
Boris Johnson commented that the threats against UK diplomats are “totally beyond the pale.” He believes that there is “no justification” for Russia to target UK diplomats.
Johnson also added that the UK is “driving geopolitical change” and that the UK “cares about Ukrainian people.” Boris does not want to see Ukraine “overwhelmed and obliterated” which is why the UK is sending weapons to the country.
The interview also covered the cost of living crisis. Susanna commented on energy company profits possibly being taxed and said: “It doesn’t help people right now who are paying their energy bills – which have gone up hundreds – to be told we need to leave that money to the energy companies, because they need to invest.
“That’s their job. Your job is to help people pay your bills.”
Johnson commented that the government is helping people with the cost of living crisis and said: “What we’re doing is helping people with the cost of energy.”
Susanna disagreed though and said: “You’ve offered people a loan they have to pay back.”
