QUESTION Time host Fiona Bruce was forced to interject as a member of the audience clashed with a panellist on Thursday night’s show.

During a segment of the show in which those on the panel were asked “how do we create hope for our young people,” satirist and author Konstantin Kisin said it was important to “stop talking down” the UK.

He said: “We’ve got to stop talking down our country. I’m a first-generation immigrant to this country and I get annoyed hearing people talk endlessly about how we’re the worst country in the world, we’re the most sexist country in the world, we’re the most racist country in the world, it’s all nonsense.

“This is one of the best places to live in the world and that’s what we should be talking about.”

At this point, a pro-Palestine member of the audience could be heard shouting “shame on you” to which Kisin replied “this is exactly the problem that I’m talking about”.

The panellist also added “we’ve got to stop shouting over people who are talking”.

The audience member could then be heard adding: “There are thousands of innocent civilians being killed.”

Bruce (above) was forced to interject and told the audience member: “There’s no point in shouting out because the people at home can’t hear you. Let’s try not to talk over each other.

“I asked Konstantin a question I’ve got to let him answer.”

The host then turned to Tory MP Alex Burghart although the audience member could be heard continuing to shout and again said “shame on you all”.

Bruce again hit out at the audience member and said: “I know you want to make your point but we’ve been asked a question and that’s how this programme works.

“The panel answer the question asked so that’s what we’re going to do. Please let the panel answer.”

The Health Ministry in Gaza says more than 25,700 people have been killed and another 63,000 wounded since the October 7 attack in southern Israel.

Northern Gaza has also been largely cut off from humanitarian aid, even as tens of thousands of people have remain there.

According to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, more than half a million people in the territory now face catastrophic hunger and the risk of famine grows.

The UK Government has repeatedly failed to call for a ceasefire in Gaza, though Lord David Cameron told Benjamin Netanyahu this week there must be an “immediate pause in the fighting” in Gaza as he pushed the Israeli prime minister over a two-state solution.

“As I said to PM Netanyahu yesterday, far more trucks need to be able to enter Gaza and more crossings need to open," the Foreign Secretary added.
