Dominic Raab mocked for keeping door shut with BROOM in TV interview

Dominic Raab has left viewers confused after it appears he ‘outsourced his personal security’ to a broomstick in an attempt to keep his door closed during a TV interview.

Eagle-eyed viewers noticed the Foreign Secretary’s ‘high security’ method of propping the brush head underneath his door handle to stop his interview potentially being hijacked by his children.

Mr Raab was appearing on Sky News this morning from his Esher, Surrey, home as the government prepares to unveil its roadmap out of an almost two-month state of lockdown. 

But having seen several colleagues have interviews from home interrupted by family members, the father-of-two came prepared by jamming a broomstick up against his door.

As he discussed the successful rollout of vaccines and the situation regarding Dubai’s Princess Latifa, viewers appeared more interested in Mr Raab’s own security provisions.

Michael Ripley wrote: ‘Dominic Raab demonstrating the MI6 training that clearly comes with the post of foreign secretary, by securing entry points to his room using a broom under the door handle during a @SkyNews interview.’

Joana Ramiro commented: ‘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.’

Chris Ball added: ‘The old use a broom to keep the kids out trick.’

Others noted that Mr Raab’s bare decor stood in contrast to the trend for his cabinet colleagues posing in front of union flags.

Stephanie Barlow: ‘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!’ 

Mr Raab’s appearance comes just days ahead of Boris Johnson’s big ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown announcement – which is set to see all primary and secondary schools reopening from March 8.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson says the highly-anticipated plans, set to be announced on February 22 – will be ‘based firmly on a cautious and prudent approach’ to ease restrictions in ‘such a way as to be irreversible’.

But with questions still being asked about how the country could come out of lockdown safely, Mr Raab had appeared on Sky News to discuss improvements in mass testing programmes.

He said that testing pilots such as in Liverpool had shown the ‘value’ of coronavirus testing carried out at scale.

When asked about a potential programme of mass testing, he told Sky News: ‘We learnt previously in places like Liverpool and other areas in the north, the value, particularly when you have got a spike, of testing done at scale and at pace, particularly with the new lateral flow testing.’

Mr Raab said that the vaccine rollout, treatments for coronavirus and carrying out lateral flow testing ‘at scale, at pace’ would be ‘important’ when easing the lockdown.

On lateral flow testing, he added: ‘So that when you do have upticks of the virus, we can come down on it like a tonne of bricks.

‘It’s only one part of the strategic jigsaw, if you like, but make sure we can come down on it like a tonne of bricks.

‘There is a range of measures, but testing and rapid lateral flow testing is a key part of that.’
