BBC Question Time: open thread 26/3/09

by Stephen Tall on March 26, 2009

Ed (‘call me Edward’) Davey, the Lib Dems’ shadow foreign secretary, is the party’s representative on tonight’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT). This week’s been a busy one for Ed, as the Government’s various foreign affairs shames – the war on Iraq, extraordinary rendition – catch up with it.

Ed will be joined on the panel by some, erm heavyweights… senior Labour politician Charles ‘two pizzas’ Clarke, rotund Conservative Party chairman Eric Pickles, and asinine gourmand Michael Winner. For viewers of a nervous disposition, the fragrant Caroline Lucas (normally fairly sensible, for a Green) will be on hand to lighten the panel’s burliness.

Remember, if you’re tuning in, you can join the general debate on Twitter here at #bbcqt, or the LDV debate below.
