Tory MP mocked for weird BBC Question Time appearance

Conservative MP Chris Philip has been mocked for his slightly bizarre approach to BBC Question Time.

Appearing on the programme yesterday evening, Philip largely spoke directly to the camera, in a tactic reminiscent of George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.


Other guests, less intent on hypnotising viewers, spoke to each other.

And people have been speculating whether this was a clever distraction technique from Philip, to divert viewers from what he was saying.

Indeed, the Tory MP claimed we should be “proud” of our response to coronavirus – particularly how we’ve “pulled together” as a nation.

He also said that “it’s difficult to make comparisons between countries.”

Over 36,000 people have died from coronavirus in the UK – the second highest death toll in the world.
