Susan Kramer, Lib Dem MP for Richmond Park, former London mayoral candidate and anti-Heathrow campaigner, is the party’s representative on tonight’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT).

Susan will be joined on the panel by Labour’s health secretary Alan Johnson (the man who might still be PM), Tory shadow minister for utter excruciatingness community cohesion Baroness Warsi, comedian, actor and writer David Mitchell (a fair-minded, liberal good egg, I suspect) and Torygraph journalist Charles Moore.

BBC Question Time (12/2/09): open thread

For the second week running, there’s no Lib Dem representative on tonight’s Question Time (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT) – in fact, to be honest, it looks like it’s going to be a depressingly tedious show this week. But don’t let that put you off contributing to our LDV Open Thread!

The panel comprises Labour’s Minister for the Cabinet Office Liam Byrne (let’s hope he’ll have had his cappuccino and soup), Tory shadow minister for communities and local government Justine Greening (whose face was beamed out of Putney on election night 2005), Birmingham City councillor and leader of …

BBC Question Time (22/1/09): open thread

BBC Question Time (15/1/09): open thread

A new year at Westminster, and the BBC’s Question Time is back (BBC1 and online, 10.35 pm GMT) – and so is the weekly LDV open thread. If you’re tuning in to watch, remember: don’t get angry, get commenting.

Lib Dem peer Baroness (Jenny) Tonge is the party’s representative… once again: I have quite a lot of time for Jenny, but, really, QT’s producers are getting boringly predictable in their bookings. Doubtless Baroness Shirl will be on their roster for this series, too. So, please, BBC: try a bit of fresh thinking.

Anyway, Jenny will be appearing alongside Tory-turned-Labour MP and …
