Everyone is angry watching the BBC's 'Why We Voted Leave' Panorama programme
It was always going to cause some controversy.
But it seems like everyone of all political stripes is pissed off after watching the BBC's 'Why We Voted Leave' programme on Panorama.
In just 30 minutes the news piece managed to anger viewers across the spectrum as Adrian Chiles was sent to investigate why so many people voted Brexit in his native West Midlands.
With Brexit voters branded 'idiots' by some and certain parts of the media claiming many EU Referendum voters were suffering from post vote regret or 'Regrexit', Chiles went to hear from real people.
You can watch the episode here on BBC iplayer, but even before the show had kicked off people were kicking off that Chiles was fronting it...
Biggest revelation in #panorama is the need for WeBrexit to send Chiles back to West Bromwich for good.

Remainer logic: I'm middle class and don't have to compete with a polish guy who'll do my job for less so I'm right you're racist #panorama

Wow! @BBCPanorama A bizarre choice of Adrian Chiles(!?) and some of the least informed and bigoted Brexiters. Dismal stuff...

These people would never have been heard if remain had won, why didn't they make program like this before the vote? Bastard BBC #panorama

This guy did made a very good point about the Remain campaign...
#panorama More people showing lack of respect for leave voters. If they hadn't been ignored over years maybe we would have remained..

But some watching the half-hour programme were quick to drop the 'R' word on Twitter...

Could the 'leavers' being 'interviewed' come across anymore racist #panorama

The division shown on Twitter highlights ugly thoughts on both sides, intolerance is clearly everywhere #panorama

Many of the arguments talked about EU immigrants taking up jobs, using services, overcrowding schools and hospital waiting lists.
But many were quick to point out this could be more a result of the austerity cut backs spreading services thinner rather than the fault of the EU or migrants from the continent...
So depressing. People just describing problems caused by austerity. #panorama

Watching #panorama it's interesting how many have allowed our own government to get off entirely without blame.

Fuck me that was depressing. All these people have been let down by everything, sold a lie and lashed out in the wrong direction #Panorama

Seems like most people voted leave due to UK government issues not EU issues! They just assumed it was EU 😩 #panorama
— K (@Mr_Kishan) July 4, 2016
Tonight's #panorama is absolutely terrifying. Why are folk describing problems caused by austerity and blaming immigration? Jesus wept.
— David Brockett (@DavidBrockett) July 4, 2016
So many instances of people blaming problems that have little to do with immigration on immigrants #panorama
— Dave Robinson (@davidrobbo66) July 4, 2016
#panorama Rather than blaming immigrants, blame unscrupulous employers offering substandard wages & conditions.Leaving EU won't improve that
— Caroline O'Connell (@Gruaig_Rua) July 4, 2016
Basically when people finish blaming migrants & EU for our government own failing in 4years time, they'll realise it's the elites #panorama

There were some people who really enjoyed the programme though...
Really thoughtful @BBCPanorama by Adrian Chiles illuminating why West Brom voted overwhelmingly to leave. appreciated hearing real voices
