A study has named Dublin as the worst city in the world for expats to find a place to live.

It was ranked last out of the 82 cities in the Expat City Ranking 2019 by Internations for finance and housing, with San Francisco and Munich just above the Irish capital.

The ranking also included satisfaction with housing affordability and more than 200,000 people took part.

It is the second year in a row that Dublin has propped up the rankings.

Nish Kumar booed and pelted with bread at Lord's Taverners' lunch for anti-Brexit rant

Nish Kumar booed and pelted with bread at Lord's Taverners' lunch for anti-Brexit rant

The Lord's Taverners' charity Christmas lunch dissolved into chaos when comedian Nish Kumar was jeered, booed off stage and pelted with a bread roll.

Appearing at Park Lane's Grosvenor House, Kumar spoke on a range of topics from Brexit , British Imperial Rule and Boris Johnson .

However, his left-leaning viewers didn't go down too well with the star-studded crowd, who began to heckle and the comedian until he was persuaded to leave.

According to insiders, Kumar began his set by joking that he looked like a terrorist or a Brazilian 'depending on the angle.'

But the crowd turned as the funnyman launched into an anti-Brexit rant and called for a second referendum.

Nish Kumar was booed off stage over comments made at the Lord's Taverners Christmas lunch

As he was met by a hostile response, Kumar implied guests must be 'thick' for not agreeing with him.

Sources have told the Mail that the compere of the charity dinner - which costs £149 a head for members - jumped on stage when things escalated and tried to persuade Kumar to leave.

Witnesses say a bread role was then thrown at Kumar, who refused to step down.

Another source told the Mail that Radio One DJ Greg James, who was supporting the charity, scolded the bread thrower.

"He had a pop and rightly so – that was disgraceful and there was no need for it, regardless of what was going on. At one point there was even a slow hand clap. It was just terrible."

Greg James landed in hot water
Greg said he was 'embarrassed' by the crowd's reaction

Greg also took to Twitter to say he was embarrassed by the response to Nish's performance.

In a string of tweets he said: "I’d just like to say that the treatment of @MrNishKumar by some members of the crowd at the @LordsTaverners fundraising Christmas lunch yesterday was appalling. It’s a charity I was proud to be an ambassador of...

"and the work they do with disadvantaged young people is extraordinary. But yesterday served as a timely reminder that disagreeing with someone doesn’t mean you have the right to abuse them verbally or physically. I was devastated for Nish (who gave his time for free)...

"I was embarrassed to be there. On an afternoon that was supposed to be about kindness, there was a distinct lack of it in the room.

Kumar has also taken to Twitter to make light of the furore.

"In my defence, it was only one bread roll and it missed me," he tweeted.

The star also shared with his 246,000 followers a video of Bob Dylan laughing off newspaper reports that people walked out of his concerts and booed him.

Charity Lord's Taverners was established in 1950 at London's Tavern pub to help give young people in the UK a better start in life through sport.

Members are said to have paid £149 a ticket for Monday's lunch, non-members forking out £169 and VIP guests paying £270 for a champagne reception.
