BBC Question Time: Angry audience member stuns panel with David Cameron joke about Brexit

The eruption came after the man asked the panel how he could sue former Prime Minister David Cameron. Mr Cameron was the leader of the Conservative party during the referendum which resulted in people wanting the UK to leave the European Union. The audience member asked the panel: “How do I sue David Cameron for causing mental distress, uncertainty and proroguing any progress in reasonable government.”

After a heated discussion between audience members and the panel over the former Prime Minister’s involvement with Brexit, the host went back to the original audience member who asked the question.

Host Fiona Bruce asked him what he thought Mr Cameron’s legacy was.

He replied with: “Oh I don’t care to tell you the truth.”

The audience met this with heaps of laughter.

Ms Bruce responded: “Go on, just tell us what you really think don’t you.”

This sparked a rant from the man who went on to tell the panel he thought Brexit was a “nightmare”.

He added: “You’ve had three years and three months and you’ve done nothing but argue among yourselves like little kids.

“You’ve got no respect for each other and you’ve got no respect for the British people.

“Just go away.”

This was met by a round of applause from the audience.

The previous comments were backed up by another audience member who said any issues were down to MPs not Mr Cameron.

She said: “It’s the MPs that have had three years to collaboratively work together to get a deal and reinforce and deliver what the people told them too.

“Parliament isn’t sovereign, people are sovereign and Parliament has been in contempt of the people.

“We need an election.”

Law expert Catherine Barnard claimed Mr Cameron’s successor Theresa May could be blamed for the issues with Brexit.

The Trinity college tutor said there were no actions taken during the summer Ms May took over with the first mentions of Brexit being at the next party Conference.

She said Ms May’s red lines laid down acted as a “straight jacket” which limited the negotiations going forward.

Fiona Bruce claimed to Mr Donaldson the DUP benefited from Mr Cameron’s decision.

Mr Donaldson said: “I do think the difficulty is that over the last two or three years we haven’t seen a strong enough approach to the negotiations.

“We need to give the current Prime Minister a chance to take this to Brussels to get a deal.”

BBC Question Time airs live On Thursday Nights on BBC One at 10.35pm.
