The Interview With Tory Baroness Wheatcroft Which Infuriated LBC Listeners

30 May 2019, 07:56

Conservative peer Baroness Wheatcroft left LBC listeners livid when she insisted that anyone who voted Brexit is wrong.

The Baroness insisted that the UK is a Remain country and anyone who voted for Brexit are not comfortable in their own skin.

Nick told her: "A lot of Brexit voters were Conservative voters. So had your party gained a slice of that 30-something percent that the Brexit Party got, it would be in a better place.

"Why do you want to bolt the door in their face."

Her blunt response: "Because they're wrong."

When she insisted the UK was now a Remain country, Nick pointed out that you could drive the full length of England without leaving a council which voted for the Brexit Party.

Baroness Wheatcroft said: "You could plot your route - and good luck with it, I don't think it would be a particularly pleasant route.

"People who are opposed to the EU are not just opposed to the fact that they are part of a greater whole - Europe - they are very uncomfortable with the situation in this country and also in their own skins."
