Video fun as Jo Swinson prepares to appear on Question Time

Jo Swinson is on Question Time tonight on BBC One at 10:35 pm.  Here she is having a bit of fun beforehand.

And her colleague Christine Jardine drops a pretty heavy hint about Jo’s future intentions…

  • BBC website has confirmed that Jo has said on QT (which is recorded) will be standing for leader

  • Totally called it in my comments on the Ed Davey thread earlier. :))
    Two excellent candidates (unlike the Tories’ 11 awful ones and one who is OK but can never win). All of a sudden, this is a good time to be a LibDem! I just say to both candidates – and their supporters – don’t blow it for us all by going negative.

  • Jo was superb on QT this evening, and it was great that she intends to stand. I’d rejoin if that comes to pass 🙂

  • @JohnMcl why don’t you rejoin now and then you can vote for her?? You can actually be part of her campaign. Same goes for anyone else: you will get a vote in this election if you join the party before 7 June. So, to all those in LDV who broadly support us but are not members: we’ve just had a superb national election result, our membership is surging, we are *leading* in the latest opinion poll, and we now have a leadership election with 2 great candidates and you can help us pick the best one if you join now. What are you waiting for??

    John – surly better to rejoin now (or before Friday 7th June) so that you can vote for Jo as the new leader?

    Jo played a blinder on QT last night and got a good response from.the audience. There was just a different atmosphere post the Euro election triumph.

  • Richard Underhill 13th Jun '19 - 10:46pm

    Question Time on 13/6/19 is from Brecon.
    There is no Liberal Democrat on the panel.
