    That older fella, next to her on the end. I've watched a number of his Youtube videos.

    He comes across better here than he does there.

    Unfortuantely there's never any debate in the comments section.

    Quite a high cunt quotient last night, with Moore and Perry complementing Moron.

    I question Perry's polling rationale: "I spoke to a few people in one constituency, my own, so I know exactly why people voted Brexit."

    And do we really need the first two-thirds of the show devoted to Brexit? Ask them something they might not have been fully briefed by their Malcolms on.

    Plus Moore seemingly making up stuff about May and Merkel before pleading source confidentiality.

    Let's hope the phone-hacking investigation has a happy ending for us all, although I'm sure Morgan is every bit as innocent as Rebekah Brooks.

    QT returns tonight for Dimbleby's final hoorah. Rory Stewart, Chris Leslie, Theo Paphitis, Faiza Shaheen and Julia Hartley-Brewer join in the fun.

    "We're heading for a Brexit that no one actually voted for", says Chris Leslie. Except no one has voted for the nature of Brexit, only that it will happen. Dimbleby would be wise to remind anyone, panel or audience, of this fact whenever generalised reasons for voting either way are voiced.

    Good news as well, as we hear that the woefully under-exposed Jacob Rees-Mogg will be on in two weeks.

    Every single week you get one who says, 'just get out'. Winds me up no end.
    Rory Stewart (sorry, Roderick James Nugent Stewart) was making me feel queasy in his oversized cuffs? People like zero hours contracts do they Rory? :mad:.

    I find that it emphasises that something as complex as the UK's membership of the European Union shouldn't really have been decided in a binary referendum by the electorate.

    I think she's been worse. She's a tabloid hack, or has been, and so has no real stake in anything she says. Like the others they have on, like Oakeshott and Moron, they can just play to some of the public's preconceptions without fear of repercussions for themselves.

    At the risk of incurring the wrath of our noble Defra Secretary, I think I'd prefer it if they had experts on QT, rather than politicians or hacks.

    That wouldn't make for tabloid TV, though.

    Incidentally, any further thoughts on Dimbleby's successor? I understand it's almost certainly going to be a woman, with Emily Maitlis I think the favourite. Mishal Husain has also been mentioned, and I think Kirsty Wark.

    I heard Kirsty Wark was a fave?
    We need more of this :)

    Or Katie Hopkins?

    Price has more credibility.

    Maitlis, Newman and Coburn are all terrible, all frequently ventriloquise a 'man on the Clapham omnibus' perspective to push right wing talking points. Hopefully Hussein gets it.

    Tonight it's Chris Skidmore (Liam Fox's shoe-scrubber), Barry Gardiner, Vince Cable, Nazir Afzal, and the annoyingly omnipresent Camilla Tominey.

    So, someone from the Dept. for International Trade, the leader of the Lib Dems, and a Telegraph and ex-Express hack: I wonder if Brexit might figure?

    So over half the programme devoted to the highly predictable story that the EU27 would tell May to fuck off.

    Why does no one ever suggest that nationalising the rail services does not mean adopting the exact model abandoned in the 1990s? There are a number of other examples from the continent which could be adapted for the British market.

    And finally, and more generally, it is not the BBC's job to promote Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or any other branded product.

    I expected there to have been more flak directed at the PM than there was.Failing Grayling was the butt of most of the jokes in the event.Afzal seems not to like him at all.

    What's to like? He cited Grayling's performances in previous ministerial roles too.
