Question Time audience member tells Tory minister to ‘read the room’ in heated clash

An angry Question Time audience member told a Conservative minister to “read the room” in a heated debate.

The voter was responding to Tory MP Mark Spencer’s comments about the UK “turning a corner” under his party on Thursday night’s show (23 May).

Mr Spencer’s appearance on the show came the day after prime minister Rishi Sunak announced a snap general election for 4 July.

After telling Mr Spencer to “read the room”, the man said: “Your party has let us down over the past 14 years.

“You’re going to lose, you’re going to lose terribly, and you’re going to deserve to lose.”
