Treasury Secretary Chris Philp gets hammered by Jo Coburn in nightmare interview

Play the Chris Philp interview drinking game!

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury was interviewed by Jo Coburn on the BBC’s Politics Live immediately after Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng gave his contentless speech to the Conservative Party Conference – and she wasn’t in a mood to deal with his waffle.

So get your favourite beverage ready – alcoholic or not – and whenever you hear Coburn making a snarky response to Philp’s ramblings, give it one or two fingers (whichever you think it deserves.

If you’re on something alcoholic and you aren’t three sheets to the wind by the end of the interview, you’re doing it wrong.

Philp had already been hammered by Martin Lewis on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. I supply a clip below:

If you’re still fit to do so, feel free to play the drinking game with this one, too – using Mr Lewis’s responses to Philp as the trigger for a finger or two.
