Daniel Hannan, a conservative Member of the European Parliament representing South East England and one of the most vocal advocates in favor of #Brexit, had a “fiery exchange” with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, in which Hannan repeatedly rejected Amanpour’s attempts to smear Leave supporters as racist and pushed back against her accusations that he had made misrepresentations.
The interview, which aired on Tuesday, featured Amanpour questioning Hannan for details about how Britain’s exit from the European Union would be accomplished.
.........the video, with a few seconds shy of nine minutes of Hannan smacking down rudeness and ridiculousness from Amanpour over and over and over again.
Amanpour kicked off the interview demanding a “plan” from Hannan, complaining that she had not heard plans suggested by pro-Leave politicians, only from Prime Minister David Cameron.
When Hannan pointed out that the Prime Minister is the person who actually has the political power to set plans in motion, the hostility ratcheted up a notch.
