Adil Ray blasts ‘unbelievable’ Good Morning Britain guest who says he’ll get ‘fed up of helping poor’

Adil Ray was positively fuming after a Good Morning Britain guest admitted he’ll get ‘fed up’ of helping the ‘poor and vulnerable’. 

GMB presenters Adil and Charlotte Hawkins discussed Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s budget which was announced on Wednesday, and pointed out the apparent lack of support for energy bills.

Speaking to guests political sketch writer Quentin Letts and former Labour Party advisor Ayesha Hazarika, Charlotte asked: ‘Nothing to help people on energy bills?’

However, Letts strongly disagreed and replied: ‘Hold on, you say help?! This is our money that the politicians are giving away and the idea that you can just help people without any cost to other people is quite wrong.’

Adil challenged his guest and countered: ‘Why is that quite wrong? If people are poor and vulnerable, shouldn’t we all be helping them? Isn’t that the idea of a society? That’s unbelievable you would say that.

‘Are you not prepared to pay for somebody worse off?’

Letts stood by his word and admitted nonchalantly: ‘I think I’d get a bit fed up at some point, yeah.’

Shocked by the admission, Adil said: ‘But how do we get on as a society then? How do we stop people from going to food banks?’

When Letts asked about the extent of the ‘help’, Adil stated growing increasingly frustrated: ‘Well, you stop people from going to food banks for a start! You stop people from not being able to put their heating on for a start!’

Refusing to back down, Letts concluded: ‘To what extent do you take it to then?’

Many GMB viewers were equally as shocked as Adil, with one branding Letts ‘heartless’ towards the disadvantaged.

Another said: ‘Wow. #gmb Quentin Letts doesn’t seem to want to help hungry children to eat. What a nice bloke.’

Yesterday, Mr Sunak announced the largest increase in public spending in a century as he pledged an ‘optimistic’ new economy fit for the post-Covid era.

In a historic budget speech, the Chancellor announced £150billion of new spending on rising wages, cash for the NHS and investment into regional transport projects.

The huge raft of announcements also saw the fuel duty scrapped, the price of pints cut, a tax on domestic flights axed and a cut on the Universal ‘taper’ rate – meaning claimants will get 8p more for every pound they earn.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
