Ukip’s Suzanne Evans riled a few Scots during last night’s Question Time Brexit special with what was either an ill-judged joke or a complete misunderstanding of Scottish history.

The SNP’s Alex Salmond was answering a question about immigration when he referenced the country’s long and troubled history of depopulation.

David Dimbleby presented the special edition from Birmingham.

On the panel were David Davis, Sir Keir Starmer, Nick Clegg, Salmond, Evans and Melanie Phillips.
