Our town’s like a foreign country: Locals can’t cope with all the immigrants, says mother after TV clash with academic

A mother who tackled a leading historian on live television about immigration insisted last night that her family’s home town has become like a ‘foreign country’.

On BBC1’s Question Time, Professor Mary Beard, an out of touch leftist blowhard pseudo-academic ,who doesn’t even live near Boston, 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.
