I agree for the most part....it was less Antiques Roadshow than I was expecting....she did let Emily Thornberry speak to much and didn't push Lammy hard enough about his plan B, but generally OK.

Fiona Bruce presents debate from Derby, with a panel of politicians and other guests facing topical questions from the audience. She is joined by minister for justice with responsibility for prisons Rory Stewart, shadow home secretary Diane Abbott, deputy leader of the SNP at Westminster Kirsty Blackman, journalist Isabel Oakeshott and professor of European politics and foreign affairs at King's College Anand Menon.

Oakeshott for the Alt-Right and Abbott for the CTRL-Left should make it entertaining in their own ways.

Goodness knows what the topics under discussion might be.  ::)

5 minutes in and Fiona Bruce has already shredded Abbott around Corbyn's ability to talk to Hamas, but not May.


And there, my friends, is why Labour wouldn't win an election.....

Spot on.  Also, Abbott, like her Dear Leader, can not and/or will not explain a coherent position on her party's policies.  She just waffles and misdirects and what-abouts with those simpering eye-rolls every single time.  And as an audience member so rightly pointed out, imagining her as Home Secretary is far more alarming than any concerns about Brexit. 


Last night's QT was the first time I've watched Fiona Bruce's stewardship properly and I was impressed overall - pounced upon weaknesses in the panel's arguments quite astutely and relentlessly. 


That said, the slight but probably unavoidable downside at times was that her interjections spoiled the flow of the conversation, but I'll probably get used to that.

Oakeshott looks hotter every time she's on there.

Who thought that Nick Ferrari would be the best contributor on a panel of 5....

Braverman is mad

Didn't watch either. I did catch the clip from This Week where James Delingpole is absolutely destroyed over his complete misunderstanding about how WTO will work. Marvellous stuff !
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

Thought Braverman was the best of an atrocious panel.  Fortunately some of the audience’s contributions were very good.

Sodha was the mad one for me.
