Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post
A very vocally pro-Brexit audience on the most recent Question Time from Hartlepool. The audience from Boston was mild by comparison. Towards the end (around 48:30) a Polish woman in the audience said she felt unwelcome as a result of the Brexit vote, and was shouted at and booed.

Newsnight recently did a report about a Syrian refugee family living in Newcastle who said they'd had a worse time in the UK than they had had in Syria, as their 14-year-old son had been falsely accused of sexual assault (tried and acquitted). Their theory was that the teenage girls who made the accusations had been motivated by a dislike of foreigners, but the BBC pointed out that this had not been confirmed.
When you accuse over half the country of being bigots that's the response you're going to get.

The other story is neither here nor there.
