Arron Banks is enjoying himself a lot more than the MPs on the DCMS committee this morning. At one point he asked them: “Are you all Remainers? Yep? Hands up?”. And then he burned Paul Farrelly:
“What is this? Are you the MP who got drunk in the House of Commons and harassed a woman at a karaoke evening?”
Those watching are not impressed with the performance of the committee:
I’ve been watching the DDCMS Select Committee with Arron Banks and Andy Wigmore. 5 MPs haven’t even shown up and those that have are utterly incompetent in their questioning. A terrible advert for select committees so far.

Banks and Wigmore running rings around the DCMS committee so far.

the Labour MP asking Banks and Wigmore about £250 and then realising that “I meant £250m”, was a particular lowlight

Don’t think this is playing out quite how Damian Collins wanted…
