BBC Question Time: Ukip ‘A Party Of Thugs,’ Says Plaid Cymru’s Leanne Wood

“If I said that in England, ‘England for the English’. I’d be in jail,” the man said.

“I resent being called a thug by a party that, by its very name, is a racist party.”

When Wood asked “Excuse me?” the man said: “Plaid Cymru, the party of Wales? Wales for the Welsh? What about the rest of us?” 

Wood said: “Look, people have thrown punches in Strasbourg today. Is that not thuggish behaviour? I resent your suggestion… 

“My party is not a racist party. We are outward-looking. We are inclusive. We are internationalist.”

BBC Question Time came from Neath, Port Talbot this week. Wood and Hamilton were joined by Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns, comedian Andy Parsons and Labour MP Chuka Umunna on the panel.
