BBC Question Time – LDV open thread, 9 July 2009 #bbcqt

Question Time this week is the Schools Special – and that brings with it two innovations. Firstly there’s the option to watch it live at 8pm on BBC3 – hence the much earlier appearance of this post than usual; and secondly one of the panellists will be a young person to be announced on the night.

There will also be the following not-quite-so-young people joining in the debate: Andy Burnham MP, Jeremy Hunt MP, Sarah Teather MP, and Shami Chakrabarti.

As last week, we hope to have a magic Facebook window appearing here:

If you’re tuning in, you can join the simultanous online Twitter debate here at #bbcqt, or the LDV debate in the thread below. Meanwhile Lib Dem blogger Mark Thompson will be liveblogging events via CoverItLive at his own blog.

    Teather is wrong about alcohol. It is not very liberal either. Apart from that I thought she did well and I do think she has more than a fair chance to beat the New Labour Lobby fodder and serial trougher she is up against but this nonsense about minimum pricing for alcohol is intensely annoying as it ignores the root cause why people drink to excess and behave boorishly and punishes the majority of us who do not.
