BBC Question Time (19/2/09): open thread

by Stephen Tall on February 19, 2009

Sarah Teather, the Lib Dems’ shadow housing minister and MP for Brent East, is the party’s representative on tonight’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT).

Sarah will be joined on the panel by Labour’s employment minister, the uber-loyal Tony McNulty, former Tory deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine, journalist and television personality, the slimily shallow Piers Morgan, and ‘entrepreneur’ (aka the inexplicable winner of The Apprentice 2007) Tim Campbell.

And for those who are staying up extra late for BBC1’s This Week, don’t bother – they’re taking a half-term break, and will be back next week.

If you’re tuning in to watch tonight, remember: don’t get angry, get commenting. And you’re probably advised to seek medical help, too.

Sarah, in my opinion, should have been clearer in saying it is not the business of politicians who gets pregnant. (That does not mean I think that thirteen year olds should have children).

Oh, and has anyone noticed that Piers Morgan is sounding more and [b]more[/b] like Noel Edmonds?

Without wanting to let the facts get in the way of a good argument – can I point out that teenage pregnancy rate has actually been steadily dropping over recent years?

Sarah Teather is really very good. Completely spiked the polemical guns of Piers Morgan and Michael Heseltine on the 13 year old father question.

Heseltine is all over the shop. He is a shadow of his former self.

He still made some good points though. I wish somebody pinned Morgan down on something – I think he would have crumbled away if anybody had bothered to argue with him.

Sarah Teather was awesome. She gave good, factual, to the point arguments across – unless Heseltine.

Golly. My comment to the Missus on Teather was that she seemed to speak entirely in cliches. The chap who won the apprentice was the star of the show in my book. The politicians were uniformly mendacious.
