Turned off after 18 minutes tonight....this lot couldn't make a personality between them...



Yes, I zoned out fairly quickly, especially as the trendy Tory woman was a "So, " merchant.  >:( ::)   Look, you could have the intellect, astuteness, insight, oration, wit and charisma of Christoper Hitchens, but start your sentence with a superfluous "So.." then all that follows is moot.  It's SO, SO annoying.  :-\

Ken Livingstone was hilarious on This Week trying to defend Venezuela's Maduro. The eminently sensible Alan Johnson was having none of it. His arguments were ripped to shreds. The man is delusional.

J R-M and Geoff Norcott on tonight - outrageous BBC right-wing Brexit bias. :)

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

It was pretty dull tbh....

JRM always comes across as completely reasonable until one digests the words that actually come out of his mouth...
Norcott is a dick
Lisa Nandy, I want to like her, but I can't....
Mr Wikipedia didn't merit a place on the panel
Blakely was another waste of a slot...

All good things must come to an end I suppose

Thank god for that, chairman of the spector, Owen Jones made mince meat out of both Portillo and Neil the other week.

I watched it for 20 minutes or so.


JRM just spews out contradictory thinking. It really is scary. I was ok with Norcott his points fell flat and not really funny.

Owen Jones would struggle to make minced meat out of mince!
He'd probably start blubbing because some poor animal had been minced.

Hardly!  Calling Poe on this one.

Owen Jones was destroyed - all he had was whataboutery and special pleading.  As usual.

If you want to hear from a gay person with a far better grasp on what liberalism should be about then Douglas Murray is your man.

That must've been a different episode to the one I watched then.

What a rogues' gallery last night.

Former Labour colleagues heatedly firing the No True Scotsman at each other - cracking stuff.

Woman from Spiked oh-so-contrary and worthy - and oh-so-tedious; just wanted her to do one, tbh.

Tory guy not much better until the Begum issue which he explained very well.  Folk will still bang a drum for her self-imposed situation regardless.  ::)


John Barnes was easily the best panel member - someone who's actually got his head screwed on.  More consistent than he ever was for England.  ;)

QT has been pretty soul-crushing recently; even Henning Wehn last week couldn't be arsed cracking any gags after the first ten minutes.

Thankfully, Owen Jones is on tonight, and while he often might have folk tearing their hair out, at least he'll show a bit of passion and keep it lively.

Hopefully he'll have his "never mind Venezuela, socialism is the answer" opinions well and truly dismantled..again. Passion is no substitute for common sense  ;)

This is true.  And yet again he was soon off on one of his Mornington Crescent rants where Everything Is The Right's Fault.  Well-meaning, probably; blinkered, most definitely.
