BBC Question Time: open thread 5/3/09

by Stephen Tall on March 5, 2009

Baroness (Shirley) Williams, veteran Lib Dem peer, is the party’s representative on tonight’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT) for a record 798th* time.

Our Shirl’ will be joined on the panel by Labour’s campaigns supremo (and part-time Secretary of State for International Development) Douglas Alexander, Conservative shadow international development secretary (and pro-hanging Thatcherite disciple) Andrew Mitchell, academic and writer (and liberal reactionary) Germaine Greer, and piers Morgan wannabe critic, journalist and author Toby Young.

And if you’re staying up extra late for BBC1’s This Week, Andrew Neil, Michael Portillo and Diane Abbott will be joined by Nick Robinson (on Gordon Brown in Washington), singer Connie Fisher (on public opinion) and comedian Stewart Lee (on Britain’s drinking culture).

Remember, if you’re tuning in to watch, don’t get angry get commenting.

* NB: may be an exaggeration. Maybe.
