Viewers Spot Dominic Raab Propping Broom Against Door To 'Keep Family Out' During Interview
Eagle-eyed viewers of Sky News noticed that Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab was using a broom propped against the door of his room during his interview today, presumably to keep out any unwanted intruders.
We've all seen the famous viral interview in which the two children enter the room on BBC News while a serious interview is taking place, and clearly Raab didn't want anything of that nature happening whilst he was being interviewed on the telly this morning.
However, he couldn't hide that intent from those watching, who were quick to point out his makeshift locking device.
One person said: "Dominic Raab has a brush at the door to keep the family out."
Another viewer wrote: "Loving to see that Dominic Raab follows my nana's old "trick" (read: Catholic mysticism) of putting a broom upside down against a door to get unwanted visitors out of your house."
A third added: "With pretentious politicians carefully placing books, football shirts, photos of kids, art etc for their zoom calls, it was great to see [Dominic Raab] this morning with an upturned broom under his door handle to keep people out of the room while he's on TV. Excellent!"
Raab has been doing the rounds on TV today - on Good Morning Britain he had a pretty fiery encounter with presenter Kate Garraway, after she called the government's response to the pandemic 'shambolic'.
Raab responded by telling Garraway that she was being 'cynical'.

He was trying to suggest that there should be a ceasefire around the world in order to deliver Covid-19 vaccines, but Kate pointed out that UK viewers probably wondered why he was discussing other countries when the UK's response has been - as she said - 'shambolic'.
Raab responded: "I think it's rather cynical what you have suggested, I don't think it's fair at all... This debate has been set well in advance,"
Kate hit back: "Hang on, I wasn't saying anything cynical, we were told you wanted to talk about that this morning, and it's an important thing to talk about.
"But I am just thinking everybody watching at home will be asking, 'Why does he want to talk about that, when we have got this chaos at home?!'
"And it's my job to put their thoughts to you."
Raab then said: "No, I am happy to talk about both things but think your approach is rather cynical."
At the end of a tense interview, Kate asked co-host Ben Shephard: "Did I get an answer?"
Ben responded: "I am not sure - it's being allowed to answer the question but then actually getting an answer..."
