Gina Thompson called us at 9am to tell us of an incident in Ipswich Hospital in Suffolk.
A woman was speaking loudly in the reception area of A&E, where Gina was with a friend who is Spanish. She was complaining about English people suffering as foreigners ‘take our benefits’ and how she was on a ‘revolution’.
‘We noticed a lady speaking really loud to the receptionist and then just walked up to me and said to my friend: “Where are you from?”.
The woman replied ‘Spain’ and then she asked Gina ‘where are you from’? Gina replied ‘what does it matter’? Gina told me she is black and from Nigeria.
