Rachel Burden’s 3-word response to Thérèse Coffey’s green agenda was the most savage burn

Rishi Sunak’s reshuffle saw Thérèse Coffey back at environment after she briefly cosplayed as deputy prime minister and health secretary under Liz Truss.

And the environment has been at the top of the news today after the latest dire climate predictions and news that Sunak won’t be going to the Cop 27 summit where he might be able to do something about it.

So it was only natural that BBC Breakfast presenter Rachel Burden should ask Coffey what she was doing to help and the environment secretary’s reply – the environment secretary – got just the 3-word response she deserved.

Bravo, Rachel Burden.

And just a few of the things people were saying about the exchange today.


This Cabinet minister was called out over her 40 new hospitals claim and it’s properly jaw-dropping despite everything
