Rishi Sunak’s comedy hammer moment wasn’t the fail people thought it was (UPDATED!)

Chances are you’ve already got a pretty good idea about Rishi Sunak and just how fit – or otherwise – you think he is to run the country.

But no matter how entrenched your beliefs, and no matter how 100%, beyond a shadow of a doubt, you’ve made up your mind, this ITV News clip of the so-called PM trying to use a hammer will still take your breath away.

Yes, you already know about the everyday stuff that he appears to have trouble with, like paying for something with a card for example.

But just take a look at the state of this. JUST LOOK AT IT.

And it prompted no end of mockery, such as this.

And this.

And this.

And this.

And it turned out that yes, there was an explanation. Which is both disappointing and a tiny relief in these troubled times.

Except, if you keep listening to the ITV clip, it’s not quite what it seems.

To conclude …

Still, that clip of him trying to use a contactless card, right?
