Mick Lynch, who has dominated TV screens in recent days amid the National Union of Railway, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) rail strike, joined Fiona Bruce on the BBC’s flagship political panel programme.
During his appearance, Lynch shared his thoughts on Boris Johnson and even said he hopes the prime minister will be “undermined”.
Speaking before polls closed in yesterday’s election, Lynch said: “I hope he loses these elections and I hope he’s hurt, frankly…
“His main problem is that he is resourceful.
“No matter what he does, he is not ashamed of his failures, the image he conveys and his behavior.”
However, Lynch warned that Conservative lawmakers will eventually topple Johnson.
He said: “Ultimately, the Conservatives are going to get rid of him before the ballot box gets rid of him because that’s what is in their best interest.”
Lynch’s comments came after an audience member expressed support for the prime minister.
She said: “For all his faults… I think Boris has done a valiant job.”

Some 40,000 employees of the National Union of Railway, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) have paralyzed the country due to concerns over wages and working conditions.
However, voters also discussed the cost-of-living crisis and Dominic Raab’s move to reform the Human Rights Act.
Lynch was joined on the panel by former Brexit Party MP Ben Habib, Safeguard Minister Rachel Maclean, International Shadow Trade Minister Nick Thomas-Symonds and Starling Bank CEO Anne Boden.
Mrs. Bruce will be joined by a new panel in Inverness next week, before heading to Barnsley in a fortnight.
