    On Any Questions, Gisela Stuart tried to defend the £350m bus by saying we can't say that figure doesn't exist because we haven't left the EU yet. :confused:

    Some of that audience tonight look and sound like they are just a few notches away from fisticuffs or tears. The division is multifaceted and is deepening.

    There did seem to be a high wanker quotient in the audience last night. I'm trying to abide by a rule where if anyone says words to effect of, "The British people voted for Brexit because...", I tend dismiss them wholly. Transposing your opinion, however valid, onto anyone else renders your contribution a little meaningless.

    Oh wonderful; an audience member who thinks we can save the NHS by using the foreign aid budget.

    What, pray tell, has Camilla Cavendish done to deserve a place on the legislature? Why does no one on QT ever question the daft historical anachronism of the House of Lords?

    God David Lammy was so fucking awful on the Oxfam thing. Pure South Park.

    I find any discussion on different education systems quickly descends into anecdote, which doesn't serve anyone. One might argue that prefacing your a statement with "As a parent/grandparent..." can render you very likely to be bias for or against one particular system. That said, we all went through at least one system ourselves, and our opinions of that system will largely be affected by personal experience.

    I'm always a little surprised when people say that healthy food is expensive. Meat may be an exception, but I've always found fruit, veg and grains to be very cheap. The availability of time to cook may be a bigger factor.

    I'm sure everyone was worried about his whereabouts, so you'll be pleased to hear that the long forgotten Nigel "7 elections" Farage will be on next week's show.

    I don't remember the ballot paper containing the condition for leaving that you had to think Mr Farage was a good thing.

    A new low is reached this evening as the political editor of the Sunday Express no less is appearing.

    I think I may have posited this in previous weeks. If so, I'll repeat it here.

    Regarding Brexit, if someone says, "We voted for control of our laws/our borders/to leave the single market/etc" (delete as applicable), they should have their mic instantly disabled, or a bucket of gunge fall on their head, whichever is easiest and cheapest. "We", meaning those who voted in the referendum in June 2016, voted only for leaving the European Union. Nothing else was on the ballot paper. Transposing any reasoning you as an individual had onto the remainder of the electorate is deeply flawed.

    Yeah the real Prescot revisionist version of history there.

    Ash was good but not great. Didnt really answer questions well. Progressive left types surely have to hold themselves to a high standard in that respect - engaging with what people are saying and asking.

    Def interesting watching tho. Looking forward to Blackpool!
