Kay Burley gets her comeuppance

It’s not been a great week for News International, which owns the newspaper at the heart of the phone-hacking scale, the News of the World. Could it get worse?

Enter Sky News’s Kay Burley, who in the past has made a habit of angering both C-list ‘celebrities’ and political activists, seems to have met her match in the form of Labour MP Chris Bryant.


Here’s the full clip (in poorer quality) where Bryant labels Burley as “dim”.
