BBC Question Time: open thread

by Stephen Tall on January 17, 2008

Chris Huhne, Lib Dem shadow home secretary, and the man 49% of the party voted to be its leader, is one of the panellists on 2008’s first edition of Question Time tonight (broadcast on BBC1 and online from 10.35 pm GMT).

He’ll be alongside Labour’s Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, the Tories’ shadow defence secretary Liam Fox, the political editor of the Daily Mirror, Kevin Maguire, and author and Tory PPC, Louise Bagshawe.

(There’s an interesting symmetry here with the last edition of Question Time in 2007, when three politicians representing the main parties were joined by former editor of the Daily Mirror, Piers Morgan, and TV presenter and life-long Tory, Kirstie Allsopp. What is it about Mirror hacks and Tory celebs that so excites QT’s producers?)

Anyway, if you’re watching, and want to sound-off, please feel free to use the comments thread.
