KAY Burley has once again caused a news storm as a rather bizarre interview left her interviewee, Labour MP Dawn Butler, asking ‘what’s wrong with you?’
The Sky News broadcaster, who grew up in Beech Hill, was questioning the MP about the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn winning the Labour leadership election after a number of MPs nominated him without actually wanting him to win.

But the interview soon became a debacle, with Burley asking the same question several times, refusing the MP the chance to finish her question.
“I don’t think that Jeremy will win,” Butler’s reply began, before Burley interjected by accusing her of evading the question.
“Yes, but I’m answering”, Butler said.
“No, you’re not,” Burley insisted. “No no, my question is, do you want him to win?”, prompting Butler to tell Burley to “calm down” so could try to finish answering the question.
Butler continued, “I nominated Jeremy, I’m happy that I nominated him. I don’t think he will win, the person that I’d like to win would be Andy.”
Burley then asked: “Do you want him to win?” Burley then asked whether Corbyn would be welcome in Burnham’s shadow cabinet, correcting Butler and insisting that he would not have him.
Butler was forced to remind her that there are other positions available within the cabinet, saying in a jovial manner: “What’s wrong with you? Don’t tell me he didn’t say it because he did! He said it.”
