On BBC1’s Question Time, Professor Mary Beard dismissed stories about the number of migrant workers overwhelming Boston as ‘myths’ and said ‘public services can cope’.
But Rachel Bull, an office manager in Boston, who was in the audience, immediately challenged the Cambridge University classics professor, claiming hospitals and schools are struggling to cope in the Lincolnshire agricultural town.I wonder if Prof Beard muttered 'That bigoted woman...' as she was ushered to the Green Room after the show was over?
No doubt the Left were outraged at this typical 'Little Englander' response to their glorious multicultural diversity project?
Mrs Bull – whose grandparents moved to Britain from Poland after the Second World War – said...Whoops!
...that she is not against immigration, but believes ministers should reconsider allowing Romanians and Bulgarians unrestricted rights to live and work in the UK from December 2013.Pick the bones out of that one!
She added: ‘The problem is we’re not like these politicians or other people on television, we’re on the frontline. I’ve not been to university, I’m just a 35-year-old who spoke from the heart.’I wonder where Prof Beard lives..? Anywhere near the frontline, do you suppose?
Do you suppose she even uses the public services she so fondly imagines can cope?
