Rachel Reeves is touring the TV studios this morning to discuss the fallout from the Greensill scandal. Ms Reeves had described the revelations from the Greensill saga as “extraordinary and shocking”. Following her comments, Ms Reeves has allegedly been snubbed from appearing on the BBC this morning to discuss matters surrounding Lex Greensill. 

 

Playbook reports: “Playbook hears Labour offered up Reeves to the BBC this morning, but they refused to take her on grounds of balance.

“Which is a curious one given the Beeb has also recently taken flak for letting the PM spout off about London Mayor Sadiq Khan during his corona press conferences.”

Last week, Boris Johnson made a series of accusations towards Mr Khan during the coronavirus briefing. 

The Prime Minister has claimed the Mayor had mismanaged Transport for London’s finances via an “irresponsible fares policy”. 

Mr Johnson said: “As for the finances of TfL, I must respectfully remind you that I left them in robust good order.

“And it is not through any fault of my own that the current Labour mayor decided to blow them on an irresponsible fares policy.”

Following the Prime Minister’s comments, Labour sources accused Mr Johnson of making an unprompted attack against the Mayor of London.
