You and Yours host Winifred could be heard interviewing a guest when a male voice … [Read more...] about ‘Jesus Christ, it’s so f******* cold in here!’ Hilarious moment BBC Radio 4’s You and Yours is rudely interrupted by a fellow presenter testing the mic in the next studio

Amber Rudd today blamed the 'sexism' of male Tory MPs for Theresa May's failure to get her Brexit deal through. The former Cabinet minister said she had been 'disappointed' by the way Mrs May had been 'forced out by a group of men'. And she predicted that any agreement Boris Johnson brings back from Brussels will be passed even though it will be 'similar'. The bruising accusations against the Eurosceptic ERG group of Tory MPs came in an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live. But ERG chair Steve Baker dismissed the PM's gender as 'irrelevant', saying he had always been willing to vote for a 'tolerable' deal. Ms Rudd campaigned for Remain in the 2016 referendum, famously swiping during a TV debate that Mr Johnson was 'not the man you want to drive you home at the end of the evening'. She served in Mrs May's Cabinet and was kept on as Work and Pension Secretary by Mr Johnson this summer. Amber Rudd told BBC Radio 5 Live (pictured) she had been 'disappointed' by the way Theresa May had … [Read more...] about Amber Rudd says Theresa May’s Brexit deal failed because Tory MPs are SEXIST – saying she expects Boris Johnson’s ‘similar’ plan will be passed
