BBC Question Time: open thread and live-blog

by Stephen Tall on November 20, 2008

To Glasgow tonight, for a mainly-Scottish edition of the BBC’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT), where the Lib Dems’ recently elected Scottish leader, Tavish Scott MSP, will appear.

Joining Tavish on the panel will be: Labour’s Secretary of State for Scotland, Jim Murphy; deputy first minister of Scotland the SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon; shadow chief secretary to the Treasury, Tory Philip Hammond; and Daily Mail columnist, the fragrant Melanie Phillips.

Now let me think… which of those is most likely to annoy LDV readers? Well, remember: if you’re tuning in to watch, don’t get angry, get commenting. This week we’re experimenting with a CoverItLive feed for extra thrill-packed 2.0 interactivity (from 10.30 pm).

(Of course, some things in those shouldn’t be taken too seriously.;-) )

My Lord, I’m going to have to go and sew up my sides after reading Littlecock’s HILARIOUS satire there…

I chanced to catch a few minutes of QT last night, and a rare sympathetic moment from Mel P. She made a good point about the shortage of mature social workers, and the over-emphasis on academic qualifications.

If the BBC and other political parties are supporters of free speech by all in our country, why not let the BNP (a legal British politcal party) have the right to air their views on television and in the press, also let them have the right to reply to accusations made against them. If their views are unacceptable to the majority of fair minded British people, then the electorate will decide their fate.

As it is,inteligent people distrust those with absolute power,with good reason – ie the ruling elite, press, TV, and all those who have a menopoly,so let those in power be seen to be fair.
