    Poor Kate McCann fainted rather than have to grill them any longer.

    Your instinct when someone faints like that isn't to just stand still, you would go over to them immediately.

    That told me everything I needed to know about both of them.

    Truss did go over. Not sure what Sunak did.

    I'm sure there were others around who were more attuned and trained to deal with such a mishap.

    To blame either of them for not doing more in circumstances such as that seems to me to be a cheap shot.

    Truss because it would give labour a stronger chance to win the next election

    Agreed. Truss was clearly in shock then after a second or two she went over.

    Fair enough. The snippet I saw seemed to suggest she didn't bother going over...

    Nah tbf it does look like she was in shock but once she realised she moved to be of some sort of assistance. Can’t comment on Sunak but it did not sound as if there was a rush to assist.

    One of these 2 people will be our next prime minister. I assume there's all sorts of security and highly experienced medical staff in the building... Surely?!

    She was hit with a football aimed at Truss from Callum Brittain

    Tbf the reaction I saw from Truss was genuine shock, then it cuts about 5 seconds after.

    Think Rishi's just taken the record for having most new assholes ripped in half an hour by Neill from Gareth Bale's teenage meeting with Disco.

    Tbf I thought he stood up to Neill’s aggressive questioning quite well and he certainly doesn’t lack confidence and is reasonably articulate.
    As for his ideas and politics…..

    I heard she fainted because...
    Following a recent publication of BBS archives, it became apparent that someone had eaten her daughter & she was advised of this whilst on air.

    The question those who vote in the election is if Truss is scared of an interview with Andrew Neil how is she going to able to stand up to world leaders like Putin and the Irish tea sock

    Wouldn't want either to be honest both of them have huge responsibility for the awful mess the country is in.

    But to enter the spirit of this "shiniest turd" competition, I voted for "Rish!" mainly because Liz Truss is the second or third most moronic imbecile MP in the House of Commons. Only beaten by Nadine "shiet for brains" Dorres and maybe Jacob Rees "Gawd love good queen Victoria" Mogg.

    It's hard to really tell without a wider view.
