Kwasi Kwarteng pulls out of GMB appearance as 50 MPs resign from Tory party

Following further resignations and even a sacking, Kwasi Kwarteng decided he didn’t want to chat about the state of the Conservative Party on Good Morning Britain. Susanna Reid explained the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy was scheduled to appear on the breakfast show but just moments after it was revealed Damian Hinds had resigned, she revealed Kwarteng would no longer be joining them.

Reid explained former Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, would instead be appearing on the show to give his thoughts on Boris Johnson’s position as leader of the Tory party.

There have been several calls for the Prime Minister to step down as leader, including from Michael Gove who was later sacked.

“The Attorney-General actually went on air yesterday and said she would like to replace the Prime Minister,” Reid remarked of the latest news to come from Downing Street.

“How many more enemies are lurking in the Prime Minister’s cabinet?

“Well, we would have expected a government minister on a normal day to join us at 8.30am but as we know the government is not functioning as normal.”

Co-host Ben Shephard laughed: “There aren’t many left!”

“So it was going to be the Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng but he cancelled so we have instead Matt Hancock,” Reid continued.

“He used to be in the cabinet of course, he is stepping up to the plate this morning.”

“That was about three minutes ago.”

The duo then spoke to Tory MP Andrew Bowie who said the Prime Minister has “lost the confidence” of the Conservative Party.
