A member of the Question Time audience has been applauded after slamming the chair of the Conservative Party over his claims about Brexit.
The man launched into a tirade at the show's panel, including the Tory chair James Cleverly, as he claimed Brexit was being used as a scapegoat for problems the party had caused.
The panel were discussing leaving the EU after being asked what the point of "getting Brexit done" is if it doesn't solve the problems which "normal British people care about".
The man then said: "The problems have nothing to with Brexit. The problems have been inflicted by the Tories for the last 10 years.
"You've treated the working class with disregard for 10 years and you're using Brexit as a tool. It's a scapegoat."

The camera then jumps back to Cleverly, who looks clearly disgruntled to have been put in his place.
