This Question Time audience member had a clever riposte to Johnny Mercer’s social media gripe

The Minister of State for Veterans’ Affairs, Johnny Mercer, has been in hot water this week for claiming that military personnel who use food banks don’t really need them.

That wasn’t what earned him a cracking comeback from an audience member on Question Time, however. It was this comment about social media.

This is probably Mercer’s most notorious social media comment.

Watch how one woman took him down.

“Given that the member of the Conservatives and the Conservative Party have shut down any form of meaningful protest, and he’s shouted across every member of this panel tonight, how else are we meant to get our point across other than social media?”

Her efforts were very much appreciated.

It could have been more embarrassing for him – just about.
