BBC Question Time: open thread

by Stephen Tall on December 4, 2008

To Newry tonight, for a mainly-Northern Irish edition of the BBC’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT), which means there’s no Lib Dem on the panel tonight.

The panel will include the Health Secretary Alan Johnson, Conservative shadow health secretary Andrew Lansley, Northern Ireland Assembly Minister for Enterprise Arlene Foster, Northern Ireland Executive Minister for Regional Development Conor Murphy, SDLP leader Mark Durkan, and Ulster Unionist peer Lord Maginnis.

And for those who are staying up extra late for BBC1’s This Week, historian David Starkey, journalist Andrew Pierce, and comedian Mark Steel will be on hand to lighten the atmosphere alongside Andrew Neil, Michael Portillo and Diane Abbott.

If you’re tuning into watch this evening, don’t get angry – get commenting…
