Ed Byrne caught out on Question Time

Hat tip to Guido Fawkes and Guy News for pointing out a boo-boo by left-wing comedian Ed Byrne: last night on Question Time during a discussion on student fees, Byrne was asked by David Willetts

"Didn't you do some publicity on this under the last Labour government?"

and replied "No" and

"I think you're thinking of somebody else: I didn't do any publicity for the Labour party on anything."

It's usually a bad idea to tell "Two Brains" Willetts he's wrong: his memory turned out to be rather better than Mr Byrne's as this clip by Guy News shows.

After the clip appeared on Guido's site, Ed Byrne tweeted

“I hold my hands up. Completely forgot about it. Apologies to David Willets”
