Tonight Question Time comes from Portsmouth.
For those who don’t know, TheEye did some time at the Royal Naval Hospital Haslar and stood for election when living in the Gosport constituency next door. TheEye stood up to be counted in that part of the world…. DV has done so too so we are both immune to armchair political warriors. Much as I loved the Gospit and the enthusiastic Navy wives I will echo the immortal words of Dick Tuck when he lost in California in 1966 “The people have spoken, the bastards.”
It is easier to quote the BBC today:
David Dimbleby presents Question Time from Portsmouth. On the panel: the comedian Alexei Sayle, shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander MP, children’s minister Sarah Teather MP, conservative Anna Soubry MP, and the columnist and chair of the National Trust Sir Simon Jenkins.
The odd and rather strange bloke gets the first nod and the lady from the majority party in Government gets fourth billing? Ah, make your own minds up.
Your Moderators line-up consists of David Vance, David Mosque, TheEye and John Ward. For those who don’t know – JW has been unwell in a serious way and I’d like to welcome him back. Good luck John. Best wishes from B-BBC.
It’s a 10:30pm kick off and afterwards we will suffer the maddess that is This Week
Don’t forget to look for Blue Nun Bingo updates on David Mosque’s website dedicated to the game.
