    Thought it was a set-up on Dawn Butler. Dimbleby holding off while Morgan got stuck in. The framing of the Toby Young question (something like, are young people just snowflakes who can't handle provocative views or some such shite) was pretty fucking unbelievable. The use of 'snowflake' - from MRA/fash to Dimbleby and A. Neil in no time at all. Lot of cunts showing their true colours at the mo. Leave no fascist alive is the only sensible policy.

    There was a missed opportunity when McDonnell's comment was brought up to cite multiple quotes from the Foreign Secretary.

    Dimbleby or the producers should have the capacity to collapse a panelist's chair, Graham Norton-style, if they're avoiding the question, being overly cliché-ed, or just being a cunt. The latter scenario may have meant Piers Moron leaving very early.

    Tbf to Toby young, she got most of her allegations against him completely wrong or really out of context. I’d probably be taking legal action if I was him. Total fuckwit mind you but get ya facts straight if you’re going to go after him. There’s plenty of other shit she could have dredged up other than the stuff she quoted.

    I’d also like to know labours position on Brexit. My local labour MP Kate hoey was a rabid and open supporter of it, posing with Farage, but Corbyns been, well, coy should we say.

    you spent ages getting swearingly vehement about how useless corbyn was and how he'd get destroyed at a GE mind. The labour party have been reasonably clear on it. A jobs first brexit, nothings off the table yet. What more do you want? details on what? Unless theres another GE soonish the process will be well underway before we have another scheduled GE. Of course the tories and the labour right have been pressing this one, the idea of course is to alienate the labour remain vote- corbyns lied to you. Credibility undermining is the way now that the post GE landscape has changed. See also: 'he was bullshitting on the student loans stuff'
    El Corbo the terrorist marxist is still a go-to drum but even thats old hat now. Its worked on those it has and not on those it didn't

    For referendum result to be ignored and the UK to stay in the EU.

    Young has no grounds for legal action against Dawn Butler. You sound like an easy mark for an unprincipled lawyer.

    Loath as I am to defend such a fuckwit as Toby Young, she got her facts a little ‘mixed up’. On national telly. I’d assume that’s a pretty open and shut case for a libel lawyer.

    I’ve got no idea what the fuck this is. Maybe repost it when you’ve sobered up?

    its perfectly legible. Maybe read it when you can cope with basic english?

    And what are his financial damages? What additional harm has he suffered to his reputation and how has this led to him suffering loss?

    He has no case. You can’t have an already fucked reputation be further damaged. I can say what I like about eg Gary Glitter and he would have no recourse.

    Good to see the boot being put into Toby Young. We've known he's a fucking cunt here for nigh on 7 years....

    Gina Miller might actually have been even more annoying smug out of touch and truly insufferable than Piers Morgan. I actually, despite myself, agreed with the chuckling Ham Hock a few times. Even though he's a reprehensible sexist arrogant turd. But Gina Miller just boils my piss.

    There was definitely a bit of a pickle over the 'free speech' issue though. I personally don't think Toby Youngs twitter rantings and offensive shite are the main reason to exclude him from public office and responsibility related to education. There are even better reasons.

    Nope. Tried again. Questioning my command of basic English btw is pretty bizarre considering the grammatical genius you’ve displayed up there.

    its perfectly readable. But, much like your opinions on Corbyns electability, your comprehension skills are self evidently shite.

    I have to agree that it is perfectly readable.

    Nope, still no idea. Was Corbyn elected btw? Did I miss something?

    inelegant perhaps, but it is readable english.
    well, then we are done here. Next time I'll attempt to couch it in words of fewer syllables, just for you.

    Yes, with 73% of the vote. How did your party do?

    It's perfectly comprehensible. It does refer to things that you said in your post without specifically restating them so you do need a brain that can hold two or three pieces of information for at least a minute and half. There are no grammatical errors that I can see.

    They did the usual NHS and Brexit staples, but it was oddly unemotional, other than the American bloke, who seemed to be in auto-luvvie mode.

    They've now stuck video coverage of QT Extra Time on the iplayer, with Adrian Chiles. TV coverage of a radio studio is a bit Mid-Morning Matters.

    I thought it was all a bit flat and toothless.

    God that whiney American. Never again. Please. At least you can boo hiss Rees Mogg.

    Yeah not up to the previous few month's exciting standards. Andy Burnham was well prepped. Treading carefully defo... hrmm!

    The problem with that is then the issue won't go away. I say lets have brexit, to show people what a shit idea it actually is. It is the only way people are going to learn- the hard way.

    You actually bother to watch Question Time? You are the source of your own frustration.

    Yeah I try and stay away but it's like a moth to the flame at times. No worries this week though because I put my foot through the screen last Thursday :thumbs:

    Tomorrow is from Dumfries, so we'll get Scottish independence yet again to complement Brexit-is-shite/great, Trump-is-a-cunt and the NHS.

    Added to that, yet another Dacre mouthpiece in Peter Oborne is on it.

    Finally, someone for Labour responds to criticism of Blair/Brown-ism by pointing out that the leadership has changed.

    At least when Peter Oborne criticises someone, Great Ormand Street in this case, for having morals he's not being a hypocrite.
