I TUNED in to Question Time last Thursday as it was coming from Weymouth- would I know anybody and would we show ourselves as a happy, friendly, informed audience?

Hopes shattered by the bigoted views of a woman at the start of the programme - and the BBC let her continue her ignorant rant for far too long.

Most people I know in Weymouth, and I’ve been here for over 40 years, are lovely kind people - Brexiteers and Remainers alike - who would hold no sympathy with the hate-filled views of this audience member.

Please keep coming to Weymouth, holidaymakers, you are very very welcome - this woman is not at all representative of our lovely town.
