BBC Stephen Nolan callers tell woman "go back to Dublin"

A row has erupted during a telephone debate on the so-called ‘pasty tax’ when a campaigner for fresh food said Northern Ireland’s “lower classes” ate less-healthy food than upper classes.

Callers to yesterday’s Nolan’s Show on the BBC told Niamh Horan to “take her views back to Dublin” where she comes from when she said “it’s widely known that lower class people eat more junk food than middle class people”.

Callers rebuked her strongly for the comments with one lady saying “the working class people of Northern Ireland worked all their daily lives and don’t just eat junk food” while another, who said he was a working class man, said had eaten a healthy diet his entire life on a limited budget.
