BBC Question Time: open thread

Okay, so there’s no Lib Dem on tonight’s Question Time (broadcast on BBC1 and online from 10.35 pm GMT) … but I’m saying nothing more.

The panel will include Labour’s Minister of State for Housing Caroline Flint, the Conservative shadow minister for community cohesion Sayeeda Warsi, the Church of England’s first Bishop for urban life and faith, Rt Rev Stephen Lowe, writer and broadcaster Clive James, and the author, columnist for the Daily Mail, and all-round paranoiac, Melanie Phillips.

If you can bear to watch Melanie, and want to sound-off, please feel free to use the comments thread.

    Good old bishop – no room for redemption and forgiveness in his church!

  • what a dull DULL questiontime!

  • The scary thing was the meeting of minds between Sayeeda Warsi, who seemed out of her depth, and Melanie Philips.

  • Forgot to mention, saw the usual BBC bias against the Lib Dems. Watford has a directly elected mayor, Lib Dem Dorothy Thornhill, who would have been ideal. Why is ‘swivel eyed’ Melanie Philips a permanent fixture on QT?

  • Why when there are 5 panel positions are 3 taken up with non politicians? That is just ridiculous for a programme about politics. If they wanted a Bishop on due to the ABC controversy then they should have dropped one of Melanie Phillips (preferably) or Clive James.

    Laurence – OK, so it may be half term. But I’m sure that if they tried, the BBC could find one LibDem MP able and willing to appear.

    The simple fact is that the BBC doesn’t like LibDems.

    Mind you, there are times when LibDems come over as too party political on QT. Sometimes they sit there saying very little. Sometimes they are not allowed to say very much by Mr Dimbleby.
