Four questions were asked, two from the British media, and two from the American media.

In a reply to Paul Waugh, Editor of PoliticsHome.com, Glen said: “PS f***ing #questiongate! Very annoyed!”

[[Nick Robinson]] asked the first question and [[Tom Bradby]] asked the second question on the behalf of ITN.
