BBC Question Time: open thread

by Stephen Tall on February 21, 2008

‘The cult of Cable’ – rather sweetly profiled by The Guardian’s Michael White yesterday – comes to tonight’s BBC Question Time (broadcast on BBC1 and online from 10.35 pm GMT).

And what better week could there be for Vince to be a guest, with Labour having finally accepted the Lib Dem shadow Chancellor’s advice to nationalise Northern Rock to protect the interests of taxpayers, with the Tories left as utterly confused (and clueless) bystanders.

The QT panel will also include the Secretary of State for Transport Ruth Kelly, Conservative shadow secretary of state for business, enterprise and regulatory reform Alan Duncan, the secretary general of Unite Derek Simpson and the political editor of The Spectator Fraser Nelson.

So tune in tonight to watch the Cable masterclass, and feel free to sound-off in the comments thread.
