Absolutely....but then he's a black man from a city, so his experience will be vastly different to ours...



Indeed, all the more reason why should be mindful not to extrapolate from his personal experience to that of the general population.  I note the (non-white) immigrants in the audience were quick to challenge his claims.  As stated earlier, the plural of anecdote is not data.

QuoteDavid Dimbleby presents topical debate from the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh. On the panel: Conservative MP for Aberdeen South Ross Thomson, former leader of the Scottish Labour Party and former contestant on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Kezia Dugdale MSP, Brexit minister for the Scottish government Mike Russell MSP, crime writer Val McDermid and Spectator editor Fraser Nelson.

I have it recorded, but probably won't watch as it'll be loaded with referendum II talk....I see enough of that on Facebook from Dods  ;)

Yes, missed it myself and it's not a priority on the to-watch list.

Great to see Flinters giving that snake Alistair Campbell a bit of a kicking over the call for a people's vote on This Week tonight. Got quite heated. I think he ended up wanting to give her another black eye to match the one she was sporting tonight!
Why do these Remoaners (losers) continue to push the line that no one voted to be worse off?
a) They don't know that that is the case
b) They have no idea whether anyone will be worse off after Brexit

Guesting on This Week, Primal Scream lead singer Bobby Gillespie made a complete tit of himself. The word moron springs to mind.
Pretty certain he'll look back on that and regret accepting the invitation, unless he is a moron of course.

Didn't watch the episode but saw the Nish Kumar clip which ends


"Boris Johnson has abdicated all responsibility and squats down and squeezes out a weekly column for the Telegraph"   ;D ;D ;D ;D
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

Nish Kumar's rant was a highlight, but the rest of it was the usual Brexit/Bremain internecine merry-go-round, all heat and little light.  Ended up zoning and out playing with my phone - there could be another 30 months of this.  ::)

Cleverly (if ever a man was mis-named!!)was a dick
Starmer needed to answer questions and stop waffling
Dobbs was good value when he managed to get a word in and the woman from the Economist almost talked some sense.

As Matt says, Kumar's rant was the highlight

Paul Mason on tonight, so be warned for a stream of hyperbole, hysteria and baffling conspiracy theories.

Bloody hell...Jordan Peterson was on QT!!  And placed next to Diane Abbott to boot.  I'm pretty sure they do these things on purpose.

Essential viewing tonight, surely?

Panel doesn't look that exciting though; I'm only familiar with Tim Stanley and Stephen Kinnock, and the latter only because of his dad.

Barry Gardiner in for Stephen Kinnock.


David's disapproval probably sent him running  ;D
