Minister for Brexit Opportunities and Government Efficiency Jacob Rees-Mogg told BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty the broadcaster has “absolutely loved” discussing the Government’s Partygate scandal. The minister hit back at Munchetty’s questions on the lockdown breaches and deemed the matter a “non-story”.

As the interview got underway, Munchetty had to interrupt the politician to ask whether the Partygate fines have affected the Conservative government’s reputation.

However, Reese-Mogg hit back: “I’m afraid I think this is a non-story and the BBC has absolutely loved it.

“What is important is that we get on the business of government.”

Munchetty, who appeared taken aback by Rees-Mogg’s comment, fumed: “I’m sorry but why do you think this is a non-story?”
