Ray said: “As often happens when there's a big news story around for the Government, when they’ve got their backs to the wall and they need to answer questions, is that they disappear.”
'As often happens when there's a big news story around for the Government, they disappear.'\n\nCurrently, a Government Minister will not be appearing on GMB this morning. We invite any Minister to come on and answer your questions.\n\n@susannareid100 | @adilraypic.twitter.com/FX09DXFxr3

Ray and his co-hosts continued with the mockery as he brandished a cake and they joked about an “ambush”, referencing Conor Burns, Conservative MP for Bournemouth West, who claimed Boris Johnson was “ambushed with a cake”.
Ray joked that, as they have cake in the studio, they may want to come in.
He said: “We do have cake. Maybe they’d like to come in. We’ve got some cake – we can offer you cake, cheese, wine.”
Co-host Susanna Reid replied: “Don’t tell me you’re planning to ambush them with cake, Adil."
Ray rescinded: “Well… you call it an ambush, I call it a party. If ministers are around, we’d love you to speak to the UK.
“There is a police investigation going on and the least you could do is answer some questions.”
When Truss did appear on Sky News, her defence that she wouldn’t answer questions that may prejudice the findings of Sue Gray’s report was slapped down by presenter Kay Burley.
#KayBurley - If it was proven Boris Johnson was at a party, should he resign? \n\nLiz Truss - I'm not going to prejudice the findings of the Sue Gray report... I believe he has done a fantastic job as PM..\n\n#KayBurley - You can't Prejudice her report, b/c she's already done itpic.twitter.com/jGhQ78Y3aK
