Councillor apologises for F-bomb Zoom outburst as ‘cat climbs up new curtains’


A city councillor dropped an F-bomb during an official meeting on Zoom, claiming it happened as his “nine kilo cat” clawed its way up his new £170 curtains.

Lib Dem Cllr Chris Randall forgot to mute his microphone during the Hull City Council tax discussion, giving the internet another video call blunder during the coronavirus pandemic.

Video of the moment, which has gone viral on social media, shows Cllr Randall disrupting the meeting as he screams: “What the f*** are you going on about?”

A fellow councillor asks: “Excuse me, who is on the line, please?”

But Cllr Randall pays no attention, continuing in his rage he shouts “f*** off”, HullLive reports.

The councillor who was interrupted fires back, saying: “Can Cllr Randall please shut up when I’m speaking, please?”

That councillor says the interruption is “not acceptable”, as other councillors are seen covering their mouths and giggling.

In a second clip, Cllr Randall sheepishly apologise for his dramatic outburst, claiming it happened as his “nine kilo cat” climbed up his new £170 curtains.

He told the meeting: “I need to apologise to Daren Hale I think.

“I was actually struggling with my nine kilo moggy crawling up my brand new curtains, which cost me nearly 170 quid and I totally lost it and didn’t realise I was still on the microphone.”

But some viewers thought he was speaking to someone off camera.

Viewers were reminded of the Handforth Parish Council meeting where council members rowed and clerk Jackie Weaver kicked a number of them off the Zoom call.

One wrote on Facebook : “Saw this earlier, Hull’s very own Jackie Weaver moment.

“Hysterical Zoom council meetings are all the rage now anyway, Hull had to get in on the action.”

Another wrote: “I like how the cat was answering him back in a woman’s voice. Very clever cat.”

A third said the behaviour of the councillor was unacceptable, writing: “If that is how our representatives speak and behave in a council meeting, all I can say is; it’s time we elect new people who can work together for the people of Hull.”
