Last night on Question Time, a lady asked numerous times why the government’s exit strategy from Afghanistan was such a failure?
The Middle East Minister James Cleverly attempted to answer the questions asked but was wide of the mark each time.
The QT audience member then re-asked the question, this time asking why are you not answering the questions I asked?
After a third attempt to answer the questions put to him, the lady in the audience shouted, “HOW DARE YOU”.
Britannia News Comment: After reviewing the footage, the Tory MP does attempt to answer the question but with vague answers regarding events that happened months ago and not about the recent events.
I could see why the lady was annoyed after James tried to continue speaking over people after serving filler to waste time instead of answering the questions about recent events.
A politician’s common practice is to serve filler mixed with some truths to pass the time and avoid fully answering the question. It is pretty cringeworthy to view.
With passions running high, I think James was caught out on this occasion.
