A Polish woman speaking on Thursday night’s Question Time was booed by a large portion of the audience after claiming she no longer felt welcome in Britain.

Speaking in a segment discussing immigration the lady said she had never felt discriminated against in the UK “until Brexit”.

When asked to elaborate by host David Dimblebly, she added: “I feel I’m no longer wanted by 52% of the voters.”

At this point a number of fellow audience members booed and jeered.

She continued: “Can I just finish please, you can comment and boo me in a minute.

“Fifty-two per cent of the voters voted against immigration. Polish is the second most popular language in this country...”

At this point Ukip’s Lisa Duffy interrupted and said: “We don’t want to stop immigration, we want to control immigration.”

Undeterred the woman proceeded to outline what Polish immigrants bring to the UK.

She said: “The majority of people voted against the Poles who work extremely hard.

“I interpret for some people who work for 12 hours seven days a week. They work in such conditions most people would not want to work and yet they are the ones the people in Britain want to get out.”

This week’s Question Time came from Hartlepool. Clarke was joined on the panel by Varoufakis, Labour’s Angela Rayner, Ukip’s Lisa Duffy and media baron Conrad Black.
