Adil Ray argues 'it's my job to correct you' as he incessantly interrupts GMB guest
Good Morning Britain guest confessed “there’s no point talking to you” on the show due to the constant interruption from co-star Adil Ray.During Thursday’s (June 16) instalment of the popular ITV breakfast show, the 48-year-old broadcaster welcomed journalist Quentin Letts onto the show to discuss the government’s next move over the policy to deport those who enter the UK illegally to Rwanda.The first planned deportation flight to Rwanda was cancelled after a last-minute intervention from the European Court of Human Rights on the same day that 440 people were found attempting to cross the English Channel and enter the UK.As Priti Patel confirmed she was committed to making sure the policy was carried out, it’s fair to say the discussion quickly became heated after Adil discussed how the UK government should be treating migrants.On the show, Adil locked horns with the parliamentary sketch writer and journalist for The Times over how to handle those who try to make the life-changing journey across the English Channel.Adil argued that Rwandan refugees shouldn’t be treated any “different” to Ukrainians who have been given every opportunity to seek refuge in the UK through legal methods online.Quentin replied: “Because Ukrainians, as far as I know, aren’t washing up dead on the beaches of Dover.”Adil explained: “That’s my point, they’re not because they’re allowed to apply online, so if they didn’t have an online visa system...actually some of them are at Calais. Most of them, because they’ve got an online visa system.“The Afghans do not have an online visa system.
