    I unfortunately caught the end of the program. It I was the BBC I'd be asking for my money back. Any dolt can trot out the Red manifesto ad infinitem. Refusing to answer the Chairs question should also be treated as a breach.

    Then again, that should come as no surprise.

    But that is where you are wrong. She did not play the race card. An audience member made a horrible dig at her... She wanted to reply back and was told that she would get an opportunity to do so but was later dismissed. Also the part where she quoted as saying that Labour was in the lead in the polls which was true but was told by Fiona that that was not true and that Tories (which Fiona is) are in the lead which is not true. Also the audience is meant to be 50/50 to give a fair balance but clearly in that episode it was not. Majority of uk just want brexit over. If that means staying in then so be it. It's like question time is pro brexit and pro Tory since Fiona joined. BBC is trying to sway the viewers because when people watch it they think we'll if majority of the audience support Tory and brexit that must mean most of the country does which is not the case. Also I have noticed most brexiters are racist judging by the comments made by the audience who want brexit.

    Indeed I was a bit puzzled about Fiona Bruce not pulling up Liz Oakeshott on Labour being miles behind in the polls, just spouting her usual rightwing propaganda. That is complete rubbish, Labour are ahead in some polls; level pegging would be the impartial view.

    Yes, thanks for that very incisive observation. As ill-informed speculative sweeping generalisations go, it is way up there.

    I think you'll find that most racists are brexiteers. But the other way around is certainly not the case. Perhaps most brexiters invited to the BBC are racist.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    It's unclear. 34% of leave voters self identify as racially prejudiced. Who knows if there are shy racists?

    Fair enough. But you won't find them on Question Time, since they're too shy.

    Don't worry that will be sorted soon, we will align with the rest of Europe. Note where we fall in the statistics. Well behind Germany & France.

    Racism against black people in EU 'widespread and entrenched' - BBC News

    When looking for work, a quarter of respondents said they had felt racially discriminated against - these rates were highest in Austria, Italy and Luxembourg. Nearly 10% said they had faced similar problems in dealing with schools and education authorities.
    Access to both private and social housing was another area where 21% people said they had faced discrimination. Austria and Italy were identified as the countries where this was most likely.
    People of African descent face 'dire picture' of racism in EU | World news | The Guardian

    One in 20 respondents said they had been a victim of a physical attack in the last five years, ranging from 14% in Finland to 2% in Portugal. The figure was 3% for the UK.
    “The survey paints a dire picture of the reality on the ground,” said the agency’s director, Michael O’Flaherty, in a preface to the report. Referring to the EU’s 2000 racial equality directive, he said: “Almost 20 years after adoption of EU laws forbidding discrimination, people of African descent face widespread and entrenched prejudice and exclusion.”
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."
