Sajd Javid squirms as Paterson grills Cabinet for not wearing masks in revealing photo


    Sky News reporter Niall Paterson lashed out at Health Secretary Sajid Javid over a photo the Government released. In the photo, Cabinet ministers are discussing Boris Johnson’s coronavirus winter plan however, none of the viewable ministers are wearing a mask. Mr Paterson questioned why none of the ministers chose to do so as Boris Johnson would later that day tell the public to wear face masks in crowded indoor situations. 

    Mr Javid stuttered in his response as he attempted to clarify that Mr Johnson told the public to behave responsibly and wear a mask while in the company of strangers.

    Mr Paterson hit back by rhetorically asking whether friends could not pass on coronavirus. 

    He said: “When you and your Cabinet colleagues met yesterday to discuss and sign off on what the Prime Minister said how many of you were wearing masks?

    “You can take a look at the picture that we have got, Number 10 released this picture, there is basically 38 to 40 people in that room, poorly ventilated and not one person is wearing a mask.

    “This is on a day that you advise us to wear masks in situations like that.”
