Channelling Kay Burley on Sky News, Neil then listed some of the questions he would have liked to ask his absent interviewee. They included questions on trust, the NHS, austerity and gaps in his manifesto on hospitals and social care.
He even got in a dig about the Supreme Court ruling that Boris Johnson unlawfully prorogued parliament back in September, saying
There is no law, no Supreme Court ruling that can force Mr Johnson to participate.
The Prime Minister of our nation will, at times, have to stand up to president Trump, president Putin, president Xi of China. So it was surely not expecting too much that he spend half an hour standing up to me.
If Johnson can’t face Andrew Neil how could he ever face down President Trump or President Putin or President Xi ?… https://t.co/AavTFXwwJ1
