BBC Question Time host Fiona Bruce was stunned after she asked the audience to raise their hands if they were in favour of another Brexit vote. A number of audience members sharply raised their hands promoting the host to say: “Oh my gosh”. She said: “You have all been sitting on your hands”.
This week’s BBC Question Time was held in London which generally voted to Remain in the European Union in the EU referendum.
The comment from the host followed an audience member insisting the UK could not have another say on leaving the EU.
The BBC Question Time audience member said: “Why would people trust a second referendum when the result of the first one was honoured?”
On Thursday MPs voted against an amendment which called for the final Brexit deal to go back to the British people for another say.
