Question Time LiveBlog 3rd November 2011

Question Time tonight comes from Westminster Hall.

On the panel tonight we have Home Secretary Theresa May, Ed “Blinky” Balls, sanctimonious old bat Shirley Williams, Peter Hitchens and vegan, ‘poet’, Green Party nutter and Animal Liberation Front terrorist supporting Benjamin Zephaniah.


TheEye is able to join the Two Davids…Vance and Mosque…in the Moderators balcony tonight, so we all look forward to seeing you at 10:30pm!

    O Lord…why does the great Hitchens tilt at all these eco-windmills?
    I would not wish that shower of shit around anyone!
    Why does the great man do it?
    It`s iPlayer editing for me-only stopping where Peter speaks and the accompanying faces are puce with rage or contempt.
    Then I know he`ll have said the truth as he does!

    Shirley Williams.   Why  ? 


    • Buggy says:

      Vera Brittain didn’t spend enough time on her ghastly, maudlin tome and got herself ‘sprogged’.


  3. David Mosque says:

    She was the arch-murderer of the Grammar schools. May history condemn her for her socialist tampering at what was the education system the rest of the world wanted to send its children to. 

    She is the architect of the worst piece of socialist social-engineering we have ever seen. An unapologetic, unrepentant liberal incompetant of the first degree. She single handedly put paid to two generations of working class social mobility at a stroke. 

    Look what we have now. She started it – yet the BBCNUJ still lord her.

    My friends, come the revolution, she will truly be first against the wall. She is the worst of the worst.


    • Buggy says:

      She’s getting on a bit, David (proof that the good do indeed die young), and might shuffle off naturally before any exciting wall action takes place. 🙁

      Interestingly, a little bird tells me that she’s the chief satirist at ‘Charlie Hedbo’. Some French mag. NEVER heard of it myself. Anyhoo, maybe someone might spread that info around……

    It’s almost 5th. Nov. where’s Guido Fawkes?


  5. Buggy says:

    I don’t suppose there’s not any drilling for shale gas going on in the immediate vicinity of Westminster Hall is there ? Seriously, if there was ever a case of four people needing to disappear into a deep hole 4evah here it is in full gory technicolour.

    You, Mr Hitchens, may cling to the edge of the “Hole Of Our Blessed Deliverance” and be saved by the Fire Brigade.


    • Buggy says:

      “I don’t suppose there’s not…”  Eeek.

      Just imagine how good my langwidge skillz wud bee if Shurlee and The Comrades had won in 1979 and shut down the Grammar School which I went on to some time later (the entire town knew it was on the to-do list in the next round of closures).

      I’d be positively Prescottian I reckon. What a bloody awful thought.


  6. Reed says:

    With those two arch lefties Balls and Williams, the Conservatives really need a smart heavweight to cut through their BS. Unfortunately, we have Mrs. Foot-in-mouth May. *Sigh*. This will be a tough one to watch. Hitchens, though he speaks much sense, is all too easily placed in the pantomime villain role – boo-hiss. We need a David Davis or a John Redwood – plain speaking and common sense on all things economical, to contrast with Balls spouting balls.


  7. cjhartnett says:

    I too would put Shirl the Pearl up against her barrier of smug, self-righteous wall that kept us all out whilst she “personned ” the barricades and spouted class warfare…as her own bunch of lotus eaters got smaller classes and tutors to send them up to mumsys alam mater.
    Hubby is some rich American grandee isn`t he?…just like Tony Benn she married well, but surely talks the good fight whilst Baggy Boy serenades these national treasures under the barricades.
    What a stench of entitlement and languid. louche privilege we`re due tonight…and no doubt she`ll scrounge a rice and peas from Ben in the cause of class solidarity!
    Need we ask what this Eurobaggage will have to say about those unhelpful and inappropriate Greeks and their “oh so vulgar” referendum?
    Peter should go into the ante-room and follow this blog….poor bloke deserves better!


  8. Scrappydoo says:

    Yep, 3 lefties and 2 conservatives, considering labour lost the election, that would be no problem for the BBC


  9. Grant says:

    Theresa May. I have never seen the point to her. Am I missing something ?


    • Reed says:

      I agree, Grant. Unfortunately, there are some things that a Conservative needs to avoid saying – or rather – they need to phrase things very carefully to steer clear of the obvious pitfalls that induce a loud groan from a QT audience. Theresa May often walks right into them without even knowing. As someone who coined the ‘nasty party’ tag, she really should be more self-aware.


      • john says:

        Reed. I’ve seen this coming for some time !

        Your right about May, so why is it that we can’t we find one person on god’s green earth that possess the persuasive skills to tell the air-head not to have a discussion with another human being, let alone a pseudo one from the BBC ?
        Maybe it ‘s just too much to ask for her to stop walking amongst us.
        Even the most retarded lefties at the BBC’s couldn’t mess up their one and only chance to impress the promotion board with the amount of material May gives them.


    • Buggy says:

      She used to wear exciting shoes ? Maybe she still does and gives the Labourites opposite a quick thrill by coyly flashing her Loboutin soles of “♫ deepest red ♫ ” at them ?


      • Grant says:

        May is a massive liability to the Tories and always has been. I can only assume Cameron keeps her on because she is a woman. But she is, how shall I put it, not the sharpest tool in the box.


        • My Site (click to edit) says:

          ‘Cameron keeps her on because she is a woman’

          Well, looking at the news today, she is golden.

          As far as the MSM is concerend, appropriate governance is only defined these days by the amount of peroxide and plunging necklines borne by the fairer sex into Parliament.

          Looking at such as the BBC, one can see why a preponderance of power kittens (plus the women) does result in superb market rate talent effectiveness….Boaden, Hockaday…

          All ably matched by Mays, Teathers, Flints.

          Mind you, looking at the Cameron, Clegg, Miliband, Thompson complement, about the only differecne seems the consmetics bill (less makeup needed by the girls for any DP appearance).

          Guessing tonight’s Newsnight is near guaranteed to have la Maitless ‘debating’ with Justine ‘normal Mum’ Roberts, Laurie Penny and Polly why Dave is toast ‘cos he doesn’t respect UK-representing wimmin like them, while Ed is a stud-muffin who will save the economy based on stacking his shadow cabinet with handbag-toters.


  10. Jeremy Clarke says:

    Question Time is bad enough at the best of times, but a Question Time with Ed Balls and Shirley Williams is enough to give a sane man an apoplexy.


  11. james1070 says:

    Noticed that they kept trying to shut Hitchens up. He is right, this country is not a democracy, but a Constitutional Monarchy. The only countries with the world democratic in their title are usually far left dictatorships like the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea). German Democratic Republic (East Germany) or  Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Laos). 


  12. cjhartnett says:

    Peters parting shot put the seal on a much better performance from him.
    “The BBC doesn`t like faith in God” was his final line and Dimbleby looked like the shit that put the slugs in the sweetie jar…crumpled, blushing and incoherent!
    That one moment told us all that we needed to know about the whole charade.
    That Peter stuck to straight soundbites and didn`t go on past the groans and rising tides of rentagobs when he was speaking was a first…”the Government has no money…only ours”…”easier to get divorced than to cancel a car hire lease agreement”…
    I stand corrected…the one true Hitch was right to pop along.
    You can`t know how fake the Tories like May are until you see a true conservative patriot like Mr Peter Hitchens.
    Oh…lookey…James Delingpole on Dimbleby Minors show tonight!


  13. Bupendra Bhakta says:

    Was their really no panelist from the *snigger* General Assembly of the *snigger* OccupyLSX *snigger* movement.

    Can only be a matter of time.

    I, for one, look forward to receiving a lecture in how the world should work from a 19 year old with ‘natty dreads’, sundry other personal hygiene problems, and a bolt through their nose.


  14. Derek Buxton says:

    No James it is not a Constitutional Monarchy, it is a corporatist tyranny, with the government in bed with big business to rob us all.
