A Tory voting businessman has blown the whistle on exactly why the audience of Auntie’s favourite Question Time is so ‘balanced’.
David Stoneman tried six times to get into Dimbleby’s den and was rejected, only being accepted into the baying audience’s ranks once he sold himself as a militant left-wing train driver opposed to fracking.
Just to rub his nose in, ‘lefty’ David also got a phone call from the local BBC inviting him to a separate episode of the show, even though he had not applied to go on.
It makes you wonder exactly how much truth lies in their claims to have ‘perfectly balanced’ studio audiences.
