Not qt but I really enjoyed the exchange between Mark Francois and and Will Self. I think they appeared on the Daily Politics yesterday.


Francois completely discredited himself with faux  outrage which showed he couldnt or didn't want to understand basic English. What a cock!

Three MPs on tonight who will blame each other for the Brexit omnishambles while they all steal their tax payer-funded wages, plus Julia Hartley Brewer to keep things the right side of sane, plus some Uni professor I’ve never heard of.  Enjoy...  :-\

Julie Hartley Bewer has never been on the right side of sane. If that's your hope Matt, it's a forlorn one!

A straight-talker, unlike the rest of the panel.  Even though I don’t necessarily always agree with her politically.


Great heated exchange between two blokes in the audience btw, well worth seeing.

Surely sanity is defined by what you say more than how you say it ?


Thanks for the tip I'll look out for it

I'm not a staunch Brexiter like her, however other than that she generally speaks a lot of sense; a proper centre-ground secularist who has no truck with militant identity politics etc.  If you only see her on QT which is dominated by Brexit ad nauseum then I imagine she's going to be more difficult to identify with.  :) [size=78%]  [/size]

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.
Caught up with this one today. Thought Javed Khan gave a solid performance and Raab did well to defend himself (a future Tory leader?). I've noticed that Owen Jones seems to twitch in a strange manner when anyone is expressing an opinion he doesn't agree with. The word 'twerp' could have been invented for him. I'm quite impressed with Fiona Bruce, who's proving to be a safe pair of hands (as well as an award winning pair of buttocks).

Fiona Bruce presents an hour of topical debate from Belfast. On the panel: Conservative defence minister and former captain in the Royal Green Jackets Tobias Ellwood MP, who became the focus of public attention two years ago when he attempted to save the life of PC Keith Palmer who was fatally wounded in the Westminster Bridge attack; shadow solicitor general for England and Wales Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, previously a barrister and academic, as well as an author of books on Clement Attlee and Nye Bevan; the DUP's Jeffrey Donaldson MP, a former corporal in the Ulster Defence Regiment and Northern Ireland’s longest serving current MP; Sinn Fein's John O’Dowd MLA, minister of education at Stormont between 2011-2016; and chief executive of the think-tank Demos Polly MacKenzie, who was previoisly chief policy advisor to Nick Clegg.

"..previoisly..."?   Tut, tut, BBC Online.  ::)

Surprisingly coherent debate on QT last night. Normally when  the programme comes from Ulster it falls into mud slinging,party political chaos.

I'm no denying that the DUP & Sinn Fein guys on the programme weren't entrenched in their respective positions, but I managed to get to the end of the show.

Goodness me...if Damian Hinds can achieve a Cabinet position, there’s hope for us all.

Is there anyone more irritating, inarticulate and over-promoted in the Tory party at the moment? 

Starts all his sentences with “So..” to top all that off.  AAAAAAARGH!!!  A sixth-former in a 50-year-old’s body.

Overall it was a poor panel last night, especially considering the week's events...

Varoufakis (sp?) got my vote as MotM

Yes, I really like the guy, even if sometimes he seems a bit idealistic.  Got plenty of time for Greeks, which is just as well really...  ::) ;)

Fiona Bruce presents an hour of topical debate from Dulwich in South London.
On the panel: Jeremy Wright MP, secretary of state for digital,
culture, media and sport, conservative;
David Lammy, MP for Tottenham, Labour;
Mairead McGuinness MEP, vice president of the European
Parliament and a member of Leo Varadkar's Fine Gael party;
Ash Sarkar, senior editor at Novara media, lecturer and left-wing activist; and
Charles Moore, columnist for the Daily Telegraph and the Spectator, former editor of both publications and of the Sunday Telegraph, and
biographer of Margaret Thatcher.

Interesting: David "White Saviour" Lammy and the insufferable regressive SJW Ash Sarkar on tonight.  ::)
