BBC QT audience member drops F-bomb in tirade over Gary Lineker

BBC Question Time host Fiona Bruce was tonight forced to apologise after an audience member dropped the F-word.

The moment unfolded during a discussion about the row over Gary Lineker’s Twitter post comparing the Government to Nazi Germany with its new laws to tackle small boats carrying migrants across the Channel.

The audience member said: “If anything we need more people like Gary Lineker to speak the truth to the power.

“The comparison to the Second World War is perfectly fine because the human rights convention was created after our experiences then.”

The BBC went on to cut the audio as the man continued saying his piece.

Ms Bruce then said: “Obviously I’m going to have to apologise for the use of the F-word but you made your point with passion.”

Mr Lineker sparked the row on Tuesday when he responded to a video on Twitter in which Home Secretary Suella Braverman Braverman discussed the Illegal Migration Bill.

He wrote: “There is no huge influx. We take far fewer refugees than other major European countries.

“This is just an immeasurably cruel policy directed at the most vulnerable people in language that is not dissimilar to that used by Germany in the ’30s.”

But the BBC’s highest-paid star has refused to back down over the tweet despite calls for him to be sacked.
