Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway engaged in an on-air clash with Dominic Raab as she asked the Foreign Secretary to “clarify” the Government’s mandatory quarantine policy. The minister hit back at the ITV anchor, saying he was fed up with the “media” not allowing politicians to give “honest answers.”
The 53-year-old has since spoken out about the pair’s on-air row as the presenter reacted to a viewer who took aim at the Government Minister.
Kate admitted she was “glad she wasn’t the only one” who noted that Raab didn’t give a definitive answer to her questions.
In view of her 435,000 Twitter followers, the mum-of-two retweeted a message from a social media user who claimed the Foreign Secretary would always fail to answer a question straight.
The person in question wrote: “Question to Raab… ‘Is the cat black?’
“Answer: ‘Well there are a lot of colours we can use to identify the cat and colours are one of them. The Government response is there is a colour and we will do our best to identify which one in time.’
“Question: ‘Yes or no?’
“Answer: ‘We will do our best to identify.'”
Kate took the opportunity to respond to the post, sharing an eye-roll emoji.
The GMB host penned: “Yep. That’s how it felt to me too this morning. Glad I’m not the only one.”
Viewers commented on her response, with SOME people agreeing with Kate’s line of questioning.
One wrote: “He just didn’t answer your question and then blames you for interrupting!”
Another commented: “I thought he had an attitude problem this morning.”

Others defended Raab’s position, as a social media user tweeted: “Politicians don’t answer straight questions, it’s in their job description.”
“Sadly I switched off this morning. Tired of GMB’s government agenda,” another said.
During the pair’s heated exchange on GMB today, the interruption from the host over mandatory quarantine policy, saw Raab snap back “Will you let me answer?.”
Kate responded: “You’re saying things I haven’t said.
“I need to clarify otherwise your not going to get a chance to answer the question if you haven’t understood it.”
The Government Minister continued: “Why don’t you pause and let me explain it.
“People get fed up with the media not allowing us to give honest answers.”
The heated row followed shortly after an equally frosty exchange during which Raab branded Kate “cynical.”
