Facebook users took aim at the manner in which Mr Dale was treated having been sat between Nihal Arthanayake and Grace Blakeley on Friday morning’s programme. The LBC radio host stormed off the set after Mr Arthanayake and Ms Blakeley blamed the shocking incident of Jonty Bravery pushing a young child from the Tate Modern on Tory austerity. Social media user erupted with fury at the programme, backing Mr Dale.
One commenter said: “Well done Ian Dale. Pair of virtue signallers getting all the air time, can’t get a word in.
“Shame Piers wasn’t on this morning!”
A second comment read: “Iain did the right thing, the presenters should have stepped in.”
Another added: “Iain Dale’s a very fair and balanced journalist you’ve only got to listen to him on LBC. Well done Iain!”
A fourth said: “This programme is becoming totally unprofessional just all talking at once and childish well done Iain.”
Ms Blakeley blamed the horrific attack on the lack of funding in the care industry, explaining that Bravery needed better care.
Mr Dale disagreed, however, and attempted to cut in a few times to put his views across.
When it was his turn to speak, he said: “Utter rubbish, if I may say so,” addressing Blakeley’s comments.
“It has nothing to do with cuts. This is to do with people doing the sensible thing and reporting…”
But he was interrupted over once again, as Blakeley jumped in to say: “No you have to have a basic amount of money to be able to actually respond!”
