Woman on Question Time brutally sums up why we can’t feel sorry for Theresa May

Question Time has a new host for the first time in decades in the form of Fiona Bruce.

But although she’s made a good fist of showing up Tory ministers, the audience will always be the stars of the show.

Last night’s edition in London was no exception as a woman brutally summed up why she doesn’t feel sorry for Theresa May.

The audience member was applauded as she laid out her argument in less than 90 seconds – and the verdict’s not pretty.

She told the flagship panel show: "Could we get over feeling sorry for Theresa May? I don’t feel sorry for her.

"She’s the woman who for many, many years has led the hostile environment for migrants in this country resulting in the Windrush generation.

"It’s a disgrace.

"She’s the person who created her very specific red lines on immigration which created the negotiation mess we are in.

"She triggered Article 50 when she had no plan.

"And as for criticising the EU on this, there are 27 other countries in the EU – they have been completely united on this.

"We don’t even have a Cabinet that can unite and definitely a government that isn’t in control of the process.

"They are a body of rules and regulations and they’re not going to break that when it’s the most successful single market in the world.

"We’re going to lose all of that and it’s ridiculous for us with our hopeless government – who cannot get it together to actually work out what the will of the people is today in 2019 – to blame the EU and go round feeling sorry for themselves."

It comes days before MPs vote on Theresa May’s Brexit plan amid warnings she could suffer the biggest Commons defeat in a century.

More than 100 Tory MPs have spoken out against the deal before Christmas, and since then only two have publicly changed tack.

The biggest post-war defeat was by 89 votes in 1979, according to academic Philip Cowley, of Queen Mary University London.

Before that Mrs May must look back to 1924, which holds the only three examples of a government losing by more than 100 votes.

According to Professor Cowley, the biggest known defeat in history was in that year by 166 votes against the minority Labour government.

Theresa May is still hoping to present MPs with concessions from the EU as time ticks down to Tuesday night’s vote.

If nothing can be agreed, the UK will leave the EU with no deal on 29 March.
