Naga Munchetty apologises as she ‘interrupts’ RMT boss Mick Lynch
Naga Muchetty chatted with General Secretary of the National Union of Railway, Transport and Marine workers Mick Lynch, but some BBC Breakfast viewers branded the interview “utterly useless”.
Mick appeared on the show live from Derby, talking about the reduced timetable, which is in effect today as the union stages a strike.
Seemingly 20,000 workers are taking part in the dispute over pay and working conditions and several could be seen holding placards in the background as he spoke.
Although the strike will cause serious disruption for holidaymakers and those travelling to events including London’s Notting Hill carnival, the Reading and Leeds music festivals, some viewers were on Mick’s side.
Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, after the interview they voiced their support for the union boss.

@kenjohn54148265 stated: “And so endeth a party Political Broadcast on behalf of the RMT, virtually uninterrupted by Naga Munchetty. Lynch has only one objective and that is to bring down the government and install Labour in its place, with its Union paymasters. Utterly useless ‘interview’.” (sic)
A user @turner_kevin chimed in: “Naga Munchetty on @BBCBreakfast faithfully following the govt line on rail strikes in the interview with Mick Lynch. Lynch stands his ground and she looks foolish.” (sic)

However, a user called @eurogaz felt that Naga was deliberately easy on Mick.
“Tbf, I got the impression Naga gave Mick Lynch nothing but ‘softballs’ which, whilst appearing antagonistic, she knew he’d knock ’em out of the park. Well played both imo,” they wrote.
Meanwhile @Jamesogrady551 complimented Naga and co-presenter Charlie Stayt for their interviews this morning.
“Both Mick Lynch and Geoff Barton giving the government a good kick up the a*** this morning. Thank you Naga and Charlie for letting them speak the truth #BBCBreakfast.”
