    Something desperately wrong with this weeks panel.

    Surely a mistake? Fox , Hoey & Weatherspoons guy all for Brexit!

    That is majority of the panel for BREXIT?

    No, cannot be right.

      LOL ! Thanks for keeping us updated . What worries me is the “undecided” !


    • wronged says:

      What a sad pathetic politician Paddy Pantsdown is. Objects to scare tactics and too much use of statistics then proceeds with arguments constantly based on fear and statistics. He even tried to scare everyone with the macho narcissistic midget Putin.
      Enjoyed tonight’s programme though.Pro Brexit audience. Pro Brexit panel. Most unusual.

        Pantsdown and Clarke seem to have sold theie souls to the EU for some reason I can’t fathom.
        I seem to remember that Pantsdown was the EU’s Lord High Representive and Plenipotentate in the Balkans, so he may be anxious about losing his pension when there is a Brexit.

        The Remainers seem to be a bit desperate. They have started to preface any pro-EU remark with “the EU is not perfect, but..” Many people seem to have a visceral distrust of the EU/Europe probable for good reasons.
        Recently, I could not find compost starter in a supermarket and asked a sales assistant.
        Don’t you stock compost starter anymore?
        No, I’ve not seen it for years
        Strange, maybe it’s not organic enough
        It’ll be Europe – they’re always banning things.

        The German media is full of the Queen’s birthday and no word about Brexit.
        You would think the Germans would be in a state of high anxiety if a Brexit would mean the end of Europe and the world as we know it.

    I guess ” irrelevant Welsh person ” makes a change from “irrelevant Scotch person “. Are you sure you did not mean “Welch” ? LOL !

    Charlatans, yes strange but it may be so the BBC can rebut accusations of bias. They do this from time to time. Expect the ratio to tilt back towards the EUriners in the future.


    • Julio says:

      Yes the irrelevant scotch QT panellists have outnumbered the irrelevant Welsh ones haven’t they?


      • taffman says:

        There are a lot of ‘irrelevant’ Welsh voters going to vote UKIP on the 5th of May .
        Labour and Plaid are worried , very worried.


        • Julio says:

          If a plwyd cymru or snp politician appears on the QT panel in an English town or city then they are irrelevant, because no English voter would have voted for them. I do not mean that they are irrelevant just because they are Welsh or scotch.

          • Grant says:

            And , of course, the same applies when an English person appears on the panel in Scotland or Wales.


            • Julio says:

              Even if they represent a Welsh or scotch constituency? Gosh that’s not very tolerant of you then. I didn’t call Liam Fox irrelevant, even though he’s scotch, because he represents an English constituency.


              • Grant says:

                Does it really matter ? It seems it matters to you . LOL !


                • Julio says:

                  I am simply clarifying my position, so that people don’t assume that I have an irrational fear of celtic persons. How do you control your apparent latent Anglophobia?


                  • Grant says:

                    I do not have any latent nor non-latent Anglophobia, so there is nothing to control.


      • Grant says:


        Scotland has a larger population and more MPs, so that is what I would expect.


  4. Steve Jones says:

    Do they mean this Welch?
    If so, I shall have to watch QT for the first time in years.


    • Grant says:


      She would probably talk more sense than the politicians with added bonuses too.


  5. Save Our Sense says:

    Ah yes, the great BBC trick of (very) occasionally offering token balance – enjoy it while it lasts folks


  6. Aerfen says:

    Good to see the site back! Tried to get on earlier, angry at Dumblebee giving Pantdown way more than his share of time, and the site wasnt working! Hey ho!


    • Number 7 says:

      I could open the site and “like” but the “log on” algorithm was corrupted – A hack from our favourite troll or one of his mates after finishing his homework?


  7. Aerfen says:

    Was delighted to hear woman have a go at the junior doctors though! As she says it IS all about money, they currently get a lot of overtime for weekends and will have to work them routinely having days off in the week instead under the new contract.


  8. Al Shubtill says:

    I think it’s a toss up between Pantsdown and Heseltwat as to who is the most patronising and supercilious c**t to appear on QT panels – based on his performance tonight I think Paddy edges it.


  9. Sluff says:

    Never thought I’d say it or see it but Pantsdown is now challenging Kinnock senior for the ‘Lord Windbag’ championship.
