Ranting woman on BBC Question Time linked to National Front

BBC bosses have been urged to explain the selection process on Question Time after an audience member who went on a racist rant was linked to far-right groups.

Reports over the weekend suggested the woman who made the anti-immigrant remarks had twice stood for election for the National Front and is currently an enthusiastic supporter of Tommy Robinson, the founder of the English Defence League.

The row stems from last Thursday’s edition of the politics show, when the woman sitting in the middle of the front row spoke for 75 seconds, calling on the UK to close its borders “completely”. Alarmingly, the programme then clipped the entire rant and shared it on their social media accounts – without any correction or fact checking. It has now been watched nearly 7 million times.

Haven't been able to watch it for some time now. It's the Uncut Gems of current affairs programmes.

One of my pet theories is that the episode of question time with farage and Russel brand was transformative for this country. In Corbyn the Labour Party became Russel brand and with the Brexit project the tories became Nigel farage.

Mike bird said a while back that the producers of morning shows are responsible for stirring up culture wars in the uk.

You’ve got that one with piers Morgan on, but also you even get it with holly and Phil. This top down infecting of our society with the culture wars.

Darned cockwombles.
it's the intersection of desperate ratings grabbing with not giving a shit about the consequences. Had to happen. Milo Yiannopoulos and Ayn Rand to present a cookery show . WHY THE HELL NOT
