How scary was that? Polish lady saying she feels unwelcome and she gets booed, angry angry people shouting stuff which basically will do them no good. Like just triggering Article 50 without any negotiation strategy will solve anything at all (whatever your opinion on what the strategy should be!)

Although Yannis Varoufakis did say 'ovidian transformation' (the spectable of Remainers like Theresa May turning into hard Brexiters). He asked why anyone would trust them..

And Conrad Black. Why?

the whole thing was just ewww

Yep, it was shocking. Glad I don't live there. Wtf was Conrad Black on? He talked such incoherent drivel. Lisa Duffy = vile.

Dystopian reality. Horrible thick people who are very angry at the ideas put in front of them, which are too incomprehensible. But who cares? Instead of informing themselves they shout and boo at a lively Polish woman and a teacher. Shame on them and the politicians who edge them on and pander to their tiny brains. I'm so angry and upset at what I've just witnessed!

Conrad Black sounded like he was stoned off his head.

It totally feels like pandora's box has opened and the UK is entering a period of darkness and anger.

I agree op sad

Yannis Varoufakis did also make an interesting point that Theresa May has made a promise to Nissan that she just can't keep

Lisa Duffy was pretty horrifying. Kind of hope she becomes ukip leader as she seems so awful ukip would hopefully crash and burn.

Conrad Black - just very odd.

nearlyhellokitty Fri 21-Oct-16 00:15:53

i mean there were some reasons for hope - the teacher, the young lad at the back etc, possibly Angela Rayner. But... for the rest ...

Yes, he was brilliant but the audience looked puzzled at the very relevant points he was making.

nearlyhellokitty Fri 21-Oct-16 00:18:26

So many of them are like her though neolara - I mean that's why they have so much difficulty finding a leader. Once in the spotlight all their flaws are exposed. And there's so many factions inside the party that they are bound to writhe around for a bit.

Nigel for all his flaws manages still to seem human and not all that bad (actually why he is terrifying).

In true UKIP fashion, I thought a fight was going to break out.

nearlyhellokitty Fri 21-Oct-16 00:21:37

The metaphors were occasionally a bit tortuous. He did seem incredibly exotic compared to the panel - but not necessarily because he was Greek, but due to the depth of his language.

Nice to hear Yanis say exactly what I have been saying about Nissan. The glances he was exchanging with Ken Clarke throughout the programme said it all. Both were so restrained.

Lisa Duffy, wasn't even polite enough to let other people speak.

I did think there was going to be a fight in the audience at one point.

Thoroughly depressing. The worst bit was hearing people say they aren't thick and yet they have no concept about what is about to happen. I just feel for them. Its going to be painful when reality hits. Expectations need to be altered but people like the fraudster Conrad Black don't exactly help that.

nearlyhellokitty Fri 21-Oct-16 00:28:58

hi redtoothbrush I've been keeping a bit of a low profile. too depressing. I saw you were doing some interesting threads

nearlyhellokitty Fri 21-Oct-16 00:31:45

what I find terrible is that I felt like the Polish woman and the teacher were incredibly brave for speaking up. Like there's such a threat of violence in the air.

nearlyhellokitty Fri 21-Oct-16 00:32:23

I mean whatever you think about the politics, that's terrifying.

smallfox2002 Fri 21-Oct-16 00:33:00

I was born in Hartlepool. Go back a fair bit to see my aged mother. Feel ashamed. Utterly.

ToujeoQueen Fri 21-Oct-16 00:36:20

Yes the Polish lady and the teacher were very brave to speak out with such hostility emanating from the audience, it was almost tangible.

nearlyhellokitty Fri 21-Oct-16 00:40:18

smallfox there's a few plaintiff tweets along those lines.. like we're not all like that type statements...

Lovewhereilive Fri 21-Oct-16 07:22:18

The atmosphere on QT was shocking. The Polish lady and the teacher in the audience deserve medals for speaking out. So many nasty ignorant people in the audience who weren't willing to listen, just wanted out asap. They are going to get even angrier when the cost of food shoots up and it is coming shortly, however they won't be able to recognise it as the consequence of voting leave and will no doubt blame remainers for talking up food prices hmm

I wouldn't read too much into it. These programmes always attract extreme nutters. Have you never watched that religious show with Nicky Clark on a Sunday? It's the same.

Corcory Fri 21-Oct-16 10:13:19

Just to put something straight. The Polish lady said she was no longer wanted her by 52% of the voting public and said 52% voted against immigrants so voted against the Poles. She was booed when she suggested that all the leave voters wanted rid of the Poles which is not true.
She was clapped at the end when she stated how hard the Poles work. So not quite the racist audience portrayed here.

RedToothBrush Fri 21-Oct-16 10:19:42


She was bored because people didn't like the mirror being held up to their attitudes and because they didn't want to hear how that makes someone else feel when they spout off about immigration.

They wanted to silence here rather than be confronted with the idea that year they might be xenophobic.
