A BREXIT opponent was booed during a BBC Question Time panel for calling the UK's decision to leave the European Union 'ridiculous'.
Despite suffering from lengthy coughing fits and an unexpected interruption at the hand of comedian Simon Brodkin, Mrs May set out her "mission" to build a prosperous country where anyone prepared to work hard can aspire to own their home.
She insisted that ensuring Brexit was her "first and most important duty" while warning of her readiness to walk out of negotiations with Brussels without a deal if the delaying tactics of the bureaucrats persist.
The European Parliament voted in favour of a motion postponing the start of Brexit trade talks with Britain because no "sufficient progress" was made on the three key issues Brussels want quickly resolved – citizens' rights, the Ireland border and the Brexit bill.
EU leaders are expected to block trade talks and discussions on a post-Brexit transition phase unless there is a "major breakthrough" before the summit later this month.
