Question Time LiveBlog 20th October 2010

Question Time tonight comes from Glasgow.

David Dimbleby is joined by Jacob Rees-Mogg, a rebellious Conservative with absolutely no connection to Glasgow at all, LibDem MP Alistair Carmichael (who dropped out of Glasgow Uni so a tenuous connection at least), local Labour MP Margaret Curran, the SNPs Education Minister Mike Russell, journalist Cristina Odone and a Scottish actor called Brian Cox.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, eh? You might as well scrawl Ambush on the front of the desk.

It’s a 10:30pm kick off. You know where to be. And how much alcohol to bring.

    From ‘Wikipedia’ on Brian Cox:

    “In 2007 Cox campaigned for Labour in the run-up to that year’s Scottish Parliamentary elections and he is a lifelong supporter of the party. Cox endorsed the Scottish National Party in the 2011 election, however, due to their higher education policy.”

    Well, at least Cristina Odone is aware of some of the type of bias exhibited by the BBC:  
    Could the BBC please stop calling the rioters ‘protesters’?

    4 left and 2 right.  No doubt an extremely left-wing audience “Well we had to pick them to represent the Scottish demographic”.

    I was at Oxford at the same time as Rees-Mogg and attended some debates at the union where he spoke. He was an upper class twit. I hope he has changed.

      There was a documentary about Rees-Moggs attempt to win a seat either at the last election or the one before that. He came across as an utter prat driving about the constituency in a Bentley with his old nanny if memory serves me right.  I couldn’t work out if he was an attention seeker or just painfully missing any self awareness.

    Very strange. Rees-Mogg is totally irrelevant. Why did the BBC choose him, I wonder ……..   !
