BBC Question Time (19/2/09): open thread

Sarah Teather, the Lib Dems’ shadow housing minister and MP for Brent East, is the party’s representative on tonight’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT).

Sarah will be joined on the panel by Labour’s employment minister, the uber-loyal Tony McNulty, former Tory deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine, journalist and television personality, the slimily shallow Piers Morgan, and ‘entrepreneur’ (aka the inexplicable winner of The Apprentice 2007) Tim Campbell.

And for those who are staying up extra late for BBC1’s This Week, don’t bother – they’re taking a half-term break, and will be back next week.

If you’re tuning in to watch tonight, remember: don’t get angry, get commenting. And you’re probably advised to seek medical help, too.

  • Sarah, in my opinion, should have been clearer in saying it is not the business of politicians who gets pregnant. (That does not mean I think that thirteen year olds should have children).

    Oh, and has anyone noticed that Piers Morgan is sounding more and [b]more[/b] like Noel Edmonds?

    Without wanting to let the facts get in the way of a good argument – can I point out that teenage pregnancy rate has actually been steadily dropping over recent years?

    Sarah Teather was awesome. She gave good, factual, to the point arguments across – unless Heseltine.
