Brexit news: Emotional BBC QT audience member makes stunning U-turn | Politics | News

Joining host Fiona Bruce this week was Conservative minister Matt Hancock, Labour‘s Annaliese Dodds and Brexit Party MEP Martin Daubney. Yesterday was a huge day for Mr Johnson’s political career as he managed to secure a Brexit deal with the EU.

However, the deal is still yet to be agreed by the House of Commons, which will sit on Saturday.

Despite the location of last night’s show being in a Remain majority area, some audience members still shared their support of the Prime Minister.

One particular audience member made a brilliant U-turn and admitted that he thought Mr Johnson had done a “brilliant job”.

He said: “I’d just like to say something I never thought would leave my mouth.

“I think Boris Johnson has done a brilliant job with going over there.”

The audience then erupted into cheers and applause.

The man continued: “Everybody said ‘you won’t do this, he can’t do that’.

“But he’s actually proven everybody wrong and from my perspective it seems to me that he’s just knocking things out the park and people just can’t stand it.

“There’s thousands of issues I’m sure to do with Brexit but it’s always to do with the Good Friday agreement, the DUP, the Northern Ireland backstop – all of this.

“I’m thinking, why does that one issue put a big break on the whole thing, so we have to negotiate around that.

“This is going to sound crazy but Ireland being referred to as the island of Ireland, why don’t we just try and get that as an island again.

“And then we can carry on with our own thing.”

The man was booed by the audience.

Ms Bruce said: “What and no longer have it as part of the United Kingdom?”

The man responded: “Yeah, the whole of Ireland.”

According to Leicester City Council, 139,307 votes were cast in the EU referendum.

Voter turnout was 65.15 percent.

Votes to remain in the EU were 70,980 and votes to leave the EU were 67,992.
