RMT union boss Mick Lynch appeared on BBC’s Question Time audience last night and one audience member’s comment has gone viral.
It comes as rail passengers are suffering more disruption on Friday because of a deadlocked dispute over jobs, pay and conditions.
Only 60% of trains are running, mainly because of a delay to the start of services after signallers and control room staff did not turn up for overnight shifts.
Some operators will wind down services slightly earlier than normal on Friday.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) at Network Rail and 13 train operators went on strike on Tuesday and Thursday, with a third walkout planned for Saturday.
But on last night’s episode, a woman’s comment about the extinction of the dinosaurs has gone viral.
Diane Abbott wasn’t happy with the audience, she tweeted: “Watching Question Time with Mick Lynch. Audience overwhelmingly Tory. And Fiona Bruce is obviously determined that Mick Lynch will not have a fair say.”
Anyway, Ava Santina from Joe Politics tweeted the video and wrote: ‘Woman on question time says train drivers must adapt to technology because the dinosaurs didn’t and “look what happened to them” I’m howling.’
