Dominic Raab calls out GMB’s Adil Ray for constant interruptions: ‘You’re doing the usual thing of not letting me answer the question’

Dominic Raab has called out Adil Ray for constantly interrupting him and not letting him finishing answering questions during an interview on Good Morning Britain.

The deputy prime minister had appeared on Tuesday’s show to discuss what Britain has been doing to help the refugees fleeing Ukraine amid attacks from Russia.

Ray and Susanna Reid had discussed whether other family members might be able to join their loved ones in the UK from Ukraine, or whether it was jus dependants of those already living in Britain that would be allowed to come over.

Mr Raab was heard saying: ‘The principle is that dependants will be able to come here and that’s of course a fact-‘, before Ray interrupted him.

The presenter interjected: ‘So a mother – so therefore a mother – imagine if it was your mother, Dominic Raab. If your mother was in Ukraine right now, would you not want your mother to be repatriated, to be back here with you?’

Mr Raab hit back: ‘Well you’re doing the usual thing which we always get on GMB which is not allowing me to answer the question. The home secretary has said-‘

Once again cutting him off mid-sentence, Ray interjected: ‘Because we get the usual thing from you when you don’t answer the question the first time round.’

Mr Raab then sniped: ‘I’m trying to but if you interrupt me within seconds then I don’t get an opportunity and nor do your viewers to hear the answer and judge for themselves. Am I allowed to proceed?’

At the nod from Ray, he confirmed: ‘Ok, so the principles that the home secretary has set out are that dependants, and we are talking about up to 100,000, the precise criteria, the processes she’s going to be setting out in the days ahead so all of those answers will be provided.

‘And I get why you’re asking the question, I just can’t answer every factual case and I can’t also speculate on the individual cases, but up to 100,000 [people].

‘The point is, as we showed in Hong Kong, as we showed in Afghanistan, the UK will step up. We have a big-hearted tradition in this country and we’ll do our bit, and the full details, which you’re rightly asking for, will be set out shortly.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
