Radio 4 is embroiled in another blue language storm after a caller stunned listeners by saying outgoing Prime Minister Liz Truss was “all the way and no s***”.
The comments were made during this afternoon’s Any Answers? a telephone where listeners can discuss the issues discussed in the just-aired edition of Questions?
Presenter Anita Anand received calls from listeners about whether they think Boris Johnson should return to the role of prime minister, as his supporters claimed he has reached 100 Tory MPs in the leadership race.
Olivia Correy from the margins of Exmoor called in and said she disagreed with a previous listener’s opinion that Boris did not want to return to the role.
BBC Radio 4 Any answers? host Anita Anand was shocked when a caller used abusive language on today’s show when referring to the outgoing prime minister

Ms Anand said: ‘You may have heard Diana Coventry a little before… and has always been a staunch supporter of Boris Johnson, but on this occasion she says ‘please Boris Johnson, don’t come back’.
“Do you have a different opinion?” the host asked caller Mrs. Correy.
The seemingly mild-mannered Mrs Correy told the BBC Radio 4 presenter: ‘I do… I consider Miss Truss to be a puff in the wind.
“She’s a fart and not a s***.”
The shocked host interrupted hastily, “Oh no, oh no. You know we’re not allowed to use that language on the BBC.’
“I’m sorry,” the caller replied.
“We just can’t do it, so we say goodbye,” Mrs. Anand said.
‘It’s a shame, because I don’t mind passion, really. I like it, it’s good, people should care about politics. But we can’t talk like that.
“It’s Radio 4, thank goodness.”
She then went to another caller who luckily managed to hold back from foul language.
This comes just a week after actress Miriam Margolyes dropped an F-bomb on last Saturday’s Today program where she revealed she wanted to tell Chancellor Jeremy Hunt ‘f*** you, you b*****d! ‘.
“F*** you, you b*****d!” Comedian and actress Miriam Margolyes shocked BBC Radio 4 listeners last Saturday by telling presenters what she ‘really wanted to say’ to Jeremy Hunt
Hunt was interviewed by journalist Justin Webb about his plans for the government’s new economic strategy on the Today program, closing in on Margolyes.
The 81-year-old comedian had been on the show to speak about the passing of her boyfriend, Harry Potter actor Robbie Coltrane, who passed away last Friday.
The actress said, “I never thought I’d be sitting in the chair… [that Jeremy Hunt was sat in]’ she told presenter Justin Webb.
“When I saw him there I just said ‘you’ve got a great job, good luck’ and what I really wanted to say was ‘f*** you, you b*****d!’ But you can’t say.’
Margolyes told the producers afterwards that she mistakenly believed she was off air, the BBC said.
