Vince is on Question Time tonight.

Poor Vince. He was in Bournemouth on Saturday cos he spoke at the Lib Dem Voice fringe meeting on adult education.

Then he had to go back to London for Marr on Sunday morning.

Then back to Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon for his Q & A, home on Tuesday and then back to the west country tonight to appear on Question Time.

So, some bits of that programme will actually be bearable for a change.

Watch on BBC at 10:45 or later on the iPlayer.

  • Must admit, have switched off Brexit Time – too many kipper-packed rabid puce shouty types in too often to be interesting, even in a detached social experiment kind of a way.

    Have also switched off
    A badly chaired noisy rabble. At least Vince spoke with restraint and made sense

  • I also turned it off after the first couple of questions, because I wanted to slap the middle aged, middle class, male Brexit questioner around the face and tell them to grow up, when they had a childish trantrum about T.May’s opening proposal to offer the EU cash, crying this isn’t what we were told in the referendum, “we were lied to”.

    Plus the Brexiteers couldn’t seem to get the point that both Vince and some others on the panel kept repeating, that T.May’s £20bn offer was just a negotiation opener, the final figure will be higher.

    The scary thing is that if the people on the various forums etc. represent a significant proportion of the Brexit suporters, then we’re doomed, because these aren’t the ones who will be getting the post-Brexit economy going, they will be in their armchairs whinging…

  • Well and truly ambushed. Every question directed at the heart of LibDem dilemma land. But wake up and smell the coffee Vince because unless this party changes course (student fees being one) we are well and truly sunk and the country with it.

    Listened on the radio.
    Tuned off, partially because the Dimblebore keeps cutting off the women panel members.

    I only watched a bit of it to see Vince, and he seemed like a solid rock surrounded by a churning sea.

    I believe Industrial ( non metropolitan) west country areas were mainly for Leave, as reflected in QT. All the same, Vince came through it very well indeed and the Ipsos Mori latest put him ahead of Corbyn (net) and with May a poor 3rd. That might be a first for the third party.

    Vince did well on TV. He obviously gains respect from people who do not live in Twickenham and who do not, yet, vote Liberal Democrat.
    On Any Answers on Saturday 23/9/2017 there were long queues of people trying to be heard for remain or leave. A professor gave statistics about older people (mainly leavers, dying off, while younger people (mainly remain) got a little older.
    No figures for 16-17 year olds who had not been allowed to vote, probably remainers.
    On Any Questions? the minister Penny Mordaunt got away with claiming that the 2016 referendum was democratic. Did she not see the demonstrators at Florence, UK citizens, complaining that they had not been allowed to vote?
