The audience is awful, worry about debts cost. Clap as always.
fair play to the show runners still slightly less imbalanced than the last series
Angela Merkel is an Eastern European communist????
remember the guy from the mail is still a cunt
Germans should be more restricted about people based on race
its never ended badly before
I believe it was Paul Dacre who first said as much.
It was a slightly odd panel last night, with two definitely Labour and three essentially Tory.
Do we really a ten minute "debate" on whether Boris Johnson is a loveable, oh-so-British national treasure who "speaks his mind", or a complete cunt? Still no mention of twice being sacked for lying, infidelity, or the very strong suspicion of aiding Darius Guppy in his violence or the Bullingdon adventures.
Last week's episode is worth watching if you want to see everyone ganging up on Chris Grayling and him squirming.
Avoid the final question though, which is essentially an advert for Apple.
Chakrabarti, Salmond and Rees-Mogg all on tomorrow night, so we may get some varying opinions.
Same faces again and again, like one of those shit celebrity quiz game programmes.
still much of the same...
I started watching last weeks QT at work today (until the computers died), It is difficult to understand the audiences views on people who travel out to Syria?
There was no mention of people who travel out there for "legit" reasons eg one of my doctors said that when he qualified he hoped to go and work out there with MSF.
They would not even let British people back in the country, they would shoot them Etc.
and I didn't get to the end of that one
I might have to watch tonight's politics entertainment synthetic bollocks as my sister's husband is in the audience and has been known to get angry
As an aside, Jonathan Dimbleby introduced someone on Any Questions last week as being from Mebyon Kernow, "The Party of Wales". This prompting much gasping/chuckling from the Cornish audience.
The older David Dimbleby turned 78 at the weekend, yet I've not heard any word of him standing down from QT yet.
Sadly, as they mentioned at the end, they did not address the care in people's home thing. Maybe tonight.
sadly, I can't make home town Croydon for next week as I'm working.
Owen Jones quoting Lenin. Not crediting him though, the wuss.
It's nor even 'Party' either. It's Sons [of] Cornwall.
Chakrabortty has a lot on his shoulders tonight, jesus.
Secretary of state for education and minister for women and equalities Justine Greening,
Labour MP for Walthamstow Stella Creasy,
television presenter Kirstie Allsopp,
Guardian columnist and lead writer on the Paradise Papers Aditya Chakrabortty, and
Daily Telegraph and Spectator columnist Charles Moore.
They better have tax dodging as the lead question, and Charlie "Charles" Moore better get quizzed on his proprietors' tax arrangements.
dear god i did not realise how posh Kristie is..
Her dad's like the sixth Baron of his line, former Chairman of Christies.
She might also be a raving Tory.
Stood as a candidate. So they have one Tory MP, one former PPC and a wingnut spectator columnist. Nice balance there.
Stella Creasey didn't do badly, to be fair.
Glad to see the tax discussion being had, because it really does need to be. There is a lot to be sorted out. The one (equivical) prop I will give to the Tory government of the last 7 years is that they have genuinely tightened a lot of tax loopholes and this genuinely has increased tax from at least the lower substrata of the rich. The proportion of both my income and investments I am now taxed on is way higher than it was in 2010 (even notwithstanding the reduction of the top rate from 50p to 45p), and this is a good thing. The problem they haven't successfully grappled with is foreign withdrawal and repatriation, and this is what has blown up in their face. It is a really difficult problem though, to be fair. There is a well paid and very intelligent industry focussed on avoiding tax and it's hard to stop them.
When she was young in East Germany, she WAS in the SED. So, yeah.
Should Johnson go? They all addressed his huge fuck up over Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and rightly so, which that bastard said we should blame the Iranians for, Not Johnson
BUT, what about the dozens of other fuck ups he has made???
what was the quote?
"Bankers - fuck 'um."
Can our MP, Jalwardna go as well then. According to Hansard he has never mentioned Zaghari Ratcliffe in Parliament... And she's one of his constituents
