BBC QT audience bursts into applause as Hartley-Brewer delivers critical blow to Remainers


The journalist and broadcaster made the comment on the political debate show on Thursday night. Ms Hartley-Brewer made the damning points after the topic of a no deal Brexit was brought up by host Fiona Bruce. She asked Ms Hartley-Brewer: “One assumes if there is going to be a deal on October 31, there has to be a compromise.

“What would you be prepared to see compromised?”

The talkRADIO host said: “I always wonder what the compromise for Brexiteers would have been if Remain had won by 52 percent.

“I have a funny feeling there wouldn’t have been an offer for compromise then.”

Ms Hartley-Brewer then went on to say how the compromise was “we still leave”.

The journalist went on to claim: “There’s quite a lot of concern from leavers tonight, has Boris Johnson gone too far and offered something that isn’t going to get through Parliament.”

Ms Bruce asked the broadcaster if she was concerned.

Ms Hartley-Brewer replied: “I am absolutely worried about it.

“I would love there to be a deal but it’s got to be a meaningful deal.

Ms Hartley-Brewer went on to claim she would “love to see a compromise” but had not seen any from the EU.

She added she stood by the majority of people who claim in the event of a no deal, the people who will get the blame are the “European Union, European Commission, the Irish and I’m afraid a lot of Remainer MPs in Parliament.”

The journalist added: “The simplest thing right now would be to let the British people have their say in a general election.

“Let’s let the people decide.”

She added how she could live with a Brexit delay as the EU chose the date anyway.

It comes as Mr Johnson met with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to discuss the Irish border.

Following the meeting, Mr Varadkar indicated that there could still be hope for a new deal.

Despite the October 31 date looming, No 10 has repeatedly insisted that the UK will leave the EU on that date come what may.
