TV hero: Lucy Saunter (who?) attacks promotion of ’30p Lee’ to Tory deputy chair

Last Updated: February 10, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Lee Anderson (right): yes, I know I used this one recently but it’s the only image of him I have. That may change rapidly, depending how long he remains in post as Tory deputy chair!

I know what you’re thinking: who’s Lucy Saunter?

She’s a “non-social media user tweeting exclusively to GET TORIES OUT” according to her Twitter bio – and she happened to be in the BBC Question Time audience.

She had submitted questions on “the growing Tory appetite to withdraw from the ECHR and the UKs downgrading on the Global Corruption Index” but these were not chosen for discussion.

Then she was allowed the opportunity to comment on the appointment of ’30p Lee’ Anderson as Tory deputy chairman – the MP who had (wrongly) claimed that it was possible to cook a healthy meal for 30p, and who called for the reinstatement of the death penalty for serious crimes, immediately after assuming his new role.

Her comment has attracted considerable praise. Here it is, with her own view on it:

We need more decent, upstanding, right (but not right-wing) thinking people like this on our TV screens – and far fewer Lee Andersons.
