This Question Time audience member voted for Brexit for the stupidest reason
Question Time audiences are a bizarre thing. They're extremely passionate about politics, but confused about what's going on.

But on Question Time yesterday, one audience member annoyed more people than most audience members, when she outlined the reason why she voted to leave the EU.
I don't mean to pick on her, but… Seriously‽— Davey (@davey) February 2, 2017
@davey erm... what supermarkets does she go to?! Mine are never straight. Stupid bint.— Phil Ford (@philford) February 2, 2017
Which is a good question. Not many people have found straight bananas in any supermarket. Never seen a straight banana in Tesco or Lidl.
@philford She said they're more bent in Aldi. Aldi, a German supermarket.— Davey (@davey) February 2, 2017
She voted for Brexit, risking decades of economic and social harm, because the bananas in Aldi are too straight.
Here's her full reasoning, which doesn't get any more logical, we're afraid.
People online, Brexiters and non-Brexiters, are despairing. And she's quickly become known as Banana Woman.
In a crowded field, the banana woman might just have won the "stupidest member of the Question Time audience ever" award #bbcqt— RamAlbumClub (@RamAlbumClub) February 2, 2017
@RamAlbumClub didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Then later I felt sorry for her cause she's thick.— Christine Campbell (@christi23960931) February 3, 2017
not watching bbqt but what a fucking numpty, bananas.. she will be forever know as banana woman.— Sandi ❄️️ (@caldersidecook) February 2, 2017
Imagine blowing up your life because you bought a banana whose shape appauled you. I mean what kind of imbecile would you have to be.— Joe Snow (@Duke_Of_Joe) February 3, 2017
#bbcqt if you're making biggest political.decision of a generation bcos of a banana you should probably keep quiet— Wallace (@Callum92) February 2, 2017
@Callum92 Especially when that was debunked years ago.— Los. (@Umad_Brasiek) February 2, 2017
"But people were concerned that bananas were getting too straight.....or too curved....I forget which" pic.twitter.com/8PEj827wUV— Andy Wyatt (@wyattandy) February 3, 2017
But on the bright side, at least now we'll be able to grow our own, bendy, British bananas when we've left the EU.
Well, I had a good sleep last night safe in the knowledge that my bananas will never, EVER, be straight #bbcqt— Banana Lady (@EUBananaLady) February 3, 2017
Not sure why people are having a go at me, it makes perfect sense. Bent bananas equals freedom #bbcqt— Banana Lady (@EUBananaLady) February 2, 2017
So it's not all bad news. But all in all, we're starting to think this second Question Time audience member may have been right.
