Audience applauds as voter says ‘shameful’ MPs ‘would be sacked’ in real world | UK | News

A seething audience member sparked huge applause after she ripped into panellists on a Channel 4 Brexit Debate panel. The audience member said she was “fed up” with politicians and criticised them for the current uncertainty surrounding . She also claimed if politicians worked in the business sector, they would have been “sacked” by now for the way they have handled the UK’s departure from the EU.

She said: “I am a little bit fed up with politicians talking about ‘I want this, I want that – we are the Conservatives, we are the Labour Party.’

“Just get together. Let’s get a bunch of good academics together and actually get this thing done and do some action.

“Instead of just talking about if for three full years. It is just shameful.”

She added: “We are paying you to do a job, get on with it.

“If you were in business, we would have sacked you long ago, but we can’t.”

Her scathing intervention comes as Prime Minister Boris Johnson has hinted the UK could be forced to take part in a general election if MPs block him from delivering a no deal exit from the EU at the end of October this year.

Addressing the country outside Number 10 on Monday, Mr Johnson said: “As we come to that Brexit deadline I am encouraged by the progress we are making.

“In the last few weeks the chances of a deal have been rising, I believe, for three reasons. They can see that we want a deal.

“They can see that we have a clear vision for our future relationship with the EU – something that has perhaps not always been the case.”

Later on Tuesday Brexit rebels applied for an emergency debate to try to challenge the Prime Minister – in a bid to grab control of the business of the lower house.

“An application for an emergency debate on the European Union (Withdrawal) has been submitted,” the House of Commons said. “The Speaker will consider it later today. If successful, the debate takes precedence over today’s scheduled business under Standing Order 24.”

It came after the Prime Minister last week announced he would prorogue Parliament ahead of the Queen’s Speech on October 14, which would effectively limit the time MPs have to debate Britain’s departure from the EU.

The decision sparked fury among campaigners trying to block a no deal who called the strategy a “constitutional outrage”, and led to thousands of people demonstrating across the UK against the Prime Minister’s move.
