Fiona Bruce wouldn’t let this Tory MP off the hook – 14 delighted reactions
There’s a new figure at the helm of BBC’s flagship political show, Question Time – journalist and TV presenter, Fiona Bruce. On her first outing, she’s set a strong tone by pressing panellists for answers and pulling them up on factual errors, but many see her best moment as this exchange with Conservative MP James Cleverly.
James Cleverly is wishing David Dimbleby would return. Fiona Bruce is tearing him apart #BBCQT
The government has no Plan B! Excellent forensic technique from Fiona pic.twitter.com/aqUfC1PvQm

Fiona Bruce has had 15 years talking to greedy vase-owners and she’s off the fucking leash here. #newbbcqt

James Cleverley: I have thoughts on what a plan B should be…
Fiona Bruce: What is it then?
James Cleverley: ummmmm….
The audience are literally laughing at the Tories and their shambolic Brexit plans. #bbcqt

WATCH: Tory MP @JamesCleverly makes a complete and utter prat of himself on BBC Question Time. He struggled to answer the question about his ‘Plan B’ for Brexit, then tried attacking Labour instead

I can’t recall a more disastrous #bbcqt than currently being experienced by both James Cleverly and Emily Thornberry. They’re both being openly laughed at by the audience. Also: great chairing by Fiona Bruce.

Just watched Fiona Bruce’s first Question Time. We all know politicians can be total bullshitters. It was still great to see a BBC host pointing it out to their faces though. #bbcqt
