Education Secretary: ‘everyone else sat on arse’ – has since apologised
Gillian Keegan has apologised after being caught swearing on camera while expressing frustration about the crumbling concrete crisis in schools. Ms Keegan claimed that “everyone else has sat on their arse” while she tried to fix the problem.
The education secretary made the comments shortly after finishing an interview with ITV News, when the camera was still filming. In a seemingly unguarded moment, the cabinet minister also lamented how nobody had told her that she was doing a “fucking good job”.
It was not clear whether Keegan was referring to her cabinet contemporaries, her predecessors or both. A Downing Street source described the comments as “completely wrong”.
