Welcome to the Biased-BBC Question Time live-chat. Tonight on the panel in Wootton Bassett are former head of the British Army General Sir Richard Dannatt, Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague, former News of the Screws editor Piers Morgan, Armed Forces Minister Bill Rammell and Salma Yaqoob, the leader of Respect.
We’ll be starting at 10:30pm and carrying on through until the end of This Week. Enjoy!
In what appears to be a blatant bit of ratings tourism, Question Time tomorrow comes from Wootton Bassett and is set up to be completely devoted to the war in Afghanistan. The panel will consist of former head of the British Army General Sir Richard Dannatt, Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague, and former News of the Screws editor Piers “Moron” Morgan (as Private Eye styles him). Armed Forces Minister Bill Rammell will be on, presumably to shield Bob Ainsworthless from the public, as will Salma Yaqoob, the leader of Respect.
George Galloway has already got his ha’pennyworth in the much ignored Swindon Advertiser saying that the panel is biased in favour of the war, and the local mayor is boycotting it because he wants to talk about something, indeed anything, else.
As usual, Biased-BBC will be hosting a live-chat on this blog to follow the discussion – chaired by our very own no-nonsense David Vance and with All Seeing Eye helping proceedings through to the end of This Week. For those playing QT Buzzword Bingo this week, we’ll be playing by the Pre-Election Rules where Thatcher‘s are wildcards and G20 scores double points. Good luck and see you here at 10:30pm!

Question Time is once again upon us and today it comes from London. The gurning faces behind the table this week are ex-Foreign Secretary (no laughing at the back) Margaret Beckett, the Shadow Health Secretary Andrew Lansley, BBC favourite and all round flip-flopper St Vince of Cable, Clive Anderson and Kirstie Allsopp.
TheEye will be humbly assisting David Vance in the live-chat which accompanies Question Time starting here at 10:30pm and carrying on until either This Week finishes or the alcohol runs out. As usual, B-BBC Buzzword Bingo will be played, and recent weeks have shown that players with “blame Thatcher” on their cards have been winning quickly. Good luck this week, contestants! All welcome…see you here later.
Welsome to the BBC Question Time live-chat here on Biased-BBC.
It is broadcast from Edinburgh tonight, and our glittering array of joyful smiling faces this week are Labour peer “Lord” Falconer, the former Shadow Home Secretary David Davis, Nicola Sturgeon of the SNP and the columnist Melanie Phillips. And Marcus Brigstocke will be the oxygen thief on the end. Enjoy!
Another Thursday, another BBC Question Time. Tonight it is broadcast from Edinburgh and the panel will feature the Labour peer “Lord” Falconer, the former Shadow Home Secretary David Davis, Nicola Sturgeon of the SNP, and the columnist Melanie Phillips. The and-somebody-else mouthbreathing spot this week goes to Marcus Brigstocke who is supposed to be a comedian. But isn’t.
As usual we will be following the occasion with a live-chat which will carry on through This Week until we can either suffer no more or the alcohol has run out. Probably a combination of the two. Please join David Vance and myself at 10:30pm UK time for the fun and games!
The traditional Question Time live-chat is here tonight, so please feel encouraged to join our usual Biased-BBC hecklers and jesters in providing a running commentary on the pronouncements of Immigration Minister Phil Woolas, the Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling, Sir Menzies Campbell, Clare Short and Nick Ferrari. See you at 10:30pm
In what promises to be a spectacularly lefty panel this week, Question Time features the Immigration Minister Phil Woolas, the Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling, expenses trougher and LibDem Sir Menzies Campbell, and Clare Short who is now sitting as an Independent. Broadcaster Nick Ferrari will add weight (literally) to the proceedings in the plus an extra panelist seat.
On the BBC website Short is described as being one of “Blair’s Babes” which if nothing else shows that someone at the BBC does sarcasm. David Vance will be leading the charge in the Biased-BBC livechat as usual, and TheEye will be humbly assisting with the moderation. See you here later this evening!
Question Time today comes from Weston-super-Mare. On the panel are Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and self-promoting turncoat Shaun Woodward, the Conservative Shadow Security Minister Pauline Neville-Jones, the Liberal Democrat spokesman on communities and local government Julia Goldsworthy, the deeply unfunny commentator Will Self and the rowing champion, double Olympic gold medallist, television presenter and writer James Cracknell.
David Vance will be picking up the live-chat baton here at 10:30pm, assisted by TheEye. Hope you can make it!
Hi – been away and just back so time for a few posts. But first…
I see that David Dimbleby is to miss chairing BBC One’s Question Time for the first time in more than 15 years after being injured in a “minor farming accident”.
The 71-year-old was loading a bullock onto a trailer at his farm in Sussex when it reared, resulting in the presenter being briefly knocked out. He also received a cut to the head that required stitches at a local hospital. John Humphrys will replace Dimbleby in the chair on Thursday, while he remains in hospital for observation.
Let’s see how Humphrys handles things!
