A Sky News reporter, who had turned up in the bingo in Derbyshire to ask viewers about their opinions on English identity, got more than he bargained for when one person delivered a joke that summed up her views of the political situation.

Viewers applauded the lady for putting a smile on their faces at a time when most vox-pops on news programmes are often seen as divisive.

Turning to the reporter, the elderly woman asked: "Can I just give you a joke?"

"Yeah, go on," responded the Sky man.

Looking serious, the lady continued: "Did you know that Oxo have brought a new cube out for Brexit?"

"Do you know what it's called?"

The reporter humoured her asking what it was called.

"Laughing stock" she said, turning away as he laughed.

As the clip went out on All Out Politics viewers appeared tickled by her put down of the political situation for "perfectly" summing up Britain's global reputation right now.

"Boom!" tweeted one, while another said "make that woman PM straight away".

"This nan let them walk right into it. Brilliant," said Twitter user @gfrancie.

Susanne Young retweeted the video, adding: "Love this lady and the twinkle in her eye."
