QT audience member MOCKS Tory peer over Farage milkshake comment – ‘You’re NOT funny’

Ms Cavendish was appearing on the BBC One show when she was asked for her thoughts on the Brexit Party leader being doused in banana milkshake. However, her comments brought fury from one audience member who shouted “you’re not funny”. Having to gather her thoughts for a moment, Ms Cavendish then changed her tune to agree that throwing substances at anyone was “not funny”.

The spat began after Ms Cavendish was asked by host Fiona Bruce to give her verdict on the attack.

Ms Cavendish said: “There was a great headline which was lactose against the intolerant.”

The joke bought huge laughter from the studio, before the audience member made her feelings clear.

Responding, Ms Cavendish said: “That’s kind of the point.

“It’s actually not really that funny.

“And if you really want to take someone on and really disagree with them in politics what you ought to do is stand against them.”

She was supported by fellow panellist Damian Green, who said her comment was funny before condemning Mr Farage’s alleged attacker.

Mr Farage hit out after he was struck by the milkshake earlier this week.

He said there were “double standards” from the British people following the public response of Monday’s attack.

His suit was left covered in the drink following the incident at around 1pm on Monday and he was quickly hurried away from the scene by staff.

Mr Farage compared the response to when MP Anna Soubry was verbally attacked by protestors during live TV broadcasts on College Green in January, which sparked outrage among the public.

Ms Cavendish, who is also a columnist for the Financial Times, was also forced to defend Mr Cameron on the program when some audience members turned on his decision to hold the EU referendum in 2016.
