Speaking to panellists on Jeremy Vine on 5 on Wednesday, host Jeremy Vine discussed Boris Johnson’s recent comments about Britain’s vaccine procurement. Mr Johnson is reported to have told a Zoom call with backbench Conservative MPs that the reason the UK got the vaccine quickly was through “greed” and “capitalism”. Mr Vine asked veteran journalist Carole Malone what her thoughts were on the comments but she appeared to be very distracted.
In the hilarious exchange, Carole Malone admitted she had not been listening to host Jeremy Vine at all.
She told Vine: “I got to tell you I wasn’t listening to you there I was looking at my notes!
“I was just looking at some notes and I didn’t hear what you said so ask me again!”
Mr Vine added: “I thought you were just having a little sneaky peek at JOE.co.uk.”

The grim milestone came with concerning news of a third outbreak of coronavirus in Europe which has plunged more countries into lockdown.
Prime Minister Johnson told reporters that this new wave from the continent will inevitably “wash up on our shores”.
On Monday the U.K. vaccinated a further 329,897 people pushing the figure to almost 30 million people who have now received at least one dose of the vaccine.
