An audience member on BBC Question Time got his chance to shine on Thursday night - and completely messed it up.
During a debate in EU and immigration a gruff-voiced gentlemen was allowed to chip in with his opinion.
He said (you can watch the clip above): "I take it the panel watches the internet?
"If you watch the internet you will find that half of the stuff you see on the media on the telly is edited.
No one ever edits the internet #bbcqt— Jess Phillips MP (@jessphillips) March 3, 2016
"Half of them immigrants, they don't want the water, they don't want the food, they want money and they want to try to get to Britain."
His comments caused general bemusement and disbelief.
"I take it the panel watches the internet" - strong contribution, audience member. #bbcqt— Rupert Myers (@RupertMyers) March 3, 2016ADVERTISEMENT
This week's episode came from Liverpool and featured Conservative Justice Minister Dominic Raab, Labour's Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, Ukip MEP Louise Bours, Guardian columnist Zoe Williams and former England footballer Jermaine Jenas.
"I take it the panel watches the internet" - don't think I have that channel, can't you get it on Freeview? #bbcqt— W13 (@AlwaysEaling) March 3, 2016
Man "watches the Internet" - gets the REAL news - refugees don't want food or water. Just money #bbcqt— Joe O'Shea (@josefoshea) March 3, 2016
Jenas stumbled at the beginning of the show trying to explain the complex process of negotiating with the EU with a football analogy about Wayne Rooney and contracts.
Fortunately for Jenas, he finished in far stronger fashion by backing a 50p tax rate - one that would apply to himself.
When you find out Jermaine Jenas supports the 50p tax rate and is a tax and spend kinda guy. The Anti-Sol Campbell. pic.twitter.com/vsELS839UF— Benjamin Cook (@bd_cook) March 3, 2016
But more on that other chap...
