BBC Question Time: Fiona Bruce in fierce clash with Iain Dale during Brexit debate | UK | News


The row was sparked after a furious audience member questioned the integrity of the Leave Campaign. Mr Dale, a political commentator and broadcaster, continually tried to interrupt the audience member before being halted by Ms Bruce. The LBC radio host kept interjecting the audience member with “Did you know…”

As Ms Bruce tried to ask another question she was once more interrupted by Mr Dale.

She fired back at him: “Iain, Iain, this is not your show!”

Mr Dale then stopped his proclamations and Ms Bruce received applause from the agitated audience members.

A second spat between the broadcasters came in the final few minutes of the show.

Towards the end, Mr Dale voiced his anger over not being allowed to answer the final question on political compromising.

Ms Bruce attempted to end the show by telling the panel: “Do you know what, we’re out of time.”

The political commentator again argued with her claiming he wanted to answer the question.

Ms Bruce slapped him down by retorting: ”’No, no we did hear from you Iain.”

The panel discussed the recent monumental Parliamentary business which saw Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s early election motion defeated.

There were multiple debates from panel members over the opposition voting for Mr Johnson’s proposal of a General Election if he were to table it again.

There were also talks over Mr Johnson’s next steps if his no deal plan is thwarted and he must ask the EU for a Brexit extension.

Ms Moran wondered whether Mr Johnson would be “the least successful Prime Minister in history”.

The Brexit Party chairman, instructed the audience, “we are not leaving on October 31”.

This followed the first question of the evening of wether the public can trust Mr Johnson if his own brother cannot.

Jo Johnson, the Prime Minister’s younger brother, stepped down as an MP yesterday citing it was for the “national interest”.

Mr Kwarted replied to the question, insisting: “I don’t think him leaving Government is anything against Bois Johnson.”

Question Time is on BBC One at 10.35pm on Thursdays.
