During BBC Question Time (BBCQT) on Thursday night, Labour’s excellent Laura Pidcock cut off a nonsensical ‘contribution’ from an audience member:
BBCQT has been heavily criticised for repeatedly allowing excessive involvement of known Tory plants among the audience, with the same red, older faces appearing frequently. But on Thursday it seemed the Tories were taking a slightly different tack – as observed by a couple of viewers via Twitter:
Well, SKWAWKBOX is always happy to oblige, so we quickly found said Tory ‘plant’ – Jack Cramp, a member of the ‘London Young Conservatives’ Facebook group:
Mr Cramp, a self-described ‘Conservative activist’, was the ‘Tory plant cunningly disguised as a Tory’ who – fancy – found no difficulty at all getting his moment on camera in the first ten minutes of the programme to make nonsensical claims about the Labour Party.
As Ms Pidcock got the applause, though, it didn’t quite work out as he might have hoped.
