BBC Question Time (29/1/09): open thread

by Stephen Tall on January 29, 2009

Jo Swinson, Lib Dem shadow foreign affairs minister – and one of LDV readers’ top choices for promotion to the party’s shadow cabinet – is the Lib Dem representative on tonight’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT).

Jo will appear alongside former Justice Secretary (and former flatmate of Tony Blair) Lord Falconer, Conservative shadow secretary for children, schools and families (and neocon apologist-in-chief for The Times) Michael Gove, Deputy First Minister of Scotland (but for how much longer?) Nicola Sturgeon, and writer and broadcaster (and general media tart) Hardeep Singh Kohli.

And for those who are staying up extra late for BBC1’s This Week, Robert Winston (yawn), Quentin Letts and Denis Murray on forgiveness will be on hand to lighten the atmosphere alongside Andrew Neil, Michael Portillo and Diane Abbott.

If you’re tuning in to watch, remember: don’t get angry, get commenting.
