Tonight Question Time comes from St Andrews.

On the panel tonight we have Conservative leader in Scotland Ruth Davidson, Charlie *hic* Kennedy, Labour rebel Frank Field, Scottish National Party MSP Humza Yousaf and irritating toothy professional whinger Janet Street-Porter.

Your Moderators line-up consists of David Vance, David Mosque, TheEye and John Ward.

It’s a 10:30pm kick off and afterwards we will suffer the maddess that is This Week. In the past it’s been fair to say that QTs from Scotland have brought out some quite strong views from Commenters here. These days; satire, wit, banter and amusing heckling are welcome as always but plain abuse won’t get past moderation.

Don’t forget to look for Blue Nun Bingo updates on David Mosque’s website dedicated to the game here.

See you here later!

David Dimbleby is joined on the panel by Sec of State for Local Govt Eric Pickles (presumably on a reinforced chair), Shadow Sec of State for Energy and “Climate Change” Caroline Flint, Daily Mail columnist and UKIPper Janice Atkinson-Small and Will Self.

Oh, and well known political commentator and philosopher Will Young. Unbelievable. Although it’s good to have two elected frontbenchers on again. Not often that happens.

It’s a 10:30pm kick off and afterwards we will suffer the maddess that is This Week.

For those who enjoy the Blue Nun Bingo whilst watching This Week (and also for those who don’t understand it) take a look at David Mosque’s website dedicated to the game here.

Your Moderators line-up consists of David Vance, David Mosque, TheEye and John Ward.

It’s a 10:30pm kick off and afterwards we will suffer the maddess that is This Week. It’s not Jacqui Smith this week. We’ve got ex-Marxist Alan Johnson instead. Joy.

Tonight Question Time comes from Tunbridge Wells.

David Dimbleby is joined on the panel by Minister for Culture Ed Vaizey, Shadow Attorney General Emily Thornberry, UKIPs Paul Nuttall MEP, journalist Cristina Odone and dreary lefty Simon Schama.

Your Moderators line-up consists of David Vance, David Mosque, TheEye and John Ward.

For those who enjoy the Blue Nun Bingo whilst watching This Week (and also for those who don’t understand it) David Mosque has created a website dedicated to the game here. Awesome effort and well worth a look.

Tonight Question Time comes from Nottingham.

David Dimbleby is joined by Ken Clarke, John Prescott, LibDem Susan Kramer, businesswoman Julie Meyer* and a random lefty freak called Owen Jones. In fact ignore that last link – you’ll just encourage him with the hits on his blog.

So with the possible exception of Julie Meyer that means no-one right of centre on the panel tonight. Oh dear.

As with last week, please remember that humour is good, sarcasm is fine, biting wit is even better but direct threats of violence and disgusting language are not acceptable. We will not add such comments. Have fun – but be good now…

Your Moderators line-up consists of David Mosque, TheEye and John Ward. David Vance has taken the awesome option of heading out to a concert tonight. I suspect we will all envy him within minutes of kick-off.

It’s a 10:30pm kick off and there is no This Week afterwards so drinking can be focused and intense. See you here later!

UPDATE: For those who enjoy the Blue Nun Bingo whilst watching This Week (and also for those who don’t understand it) David Mosque has created a website dedicated to the game here. Genius. No other word for it. Genius.

* Oh yes

Welcome back to the Biased-BBC Question Time Live-Chat! We resume after the Christmas break with a classic line-up of typical BBC fodder.

Tonight Question Time comes from London.

This week sees your usual regular Moderators line-up of David Vance and David Mosque. TheEye is back permanently as of tonight and is looking forward to getting back into the fray.

It’s a 10:30pm kick off. You know where to be. And how much alcohol to bring.

Question Time tonight comes from Stoke-On-Trent.

On the panel Conservative PPS to the Defence Secretary Claire Perry, Labour MP Tristram Hunt, black part-time judge Constance Briscoe, Chief Executive of Next Lord Simon Wolfson (who takes the Conservative whip) and nutty race-baiter Mehdi Hasan.

It’s been a long time since the panel has been so spectacularly unspectacular. Honestly, you wouldn’t recognise a single one of them if they stood next to you on the Tube.

Today is General Election day in Gibraltar so TheEye has been hobbling around on crutches wearing a rosette all day. I will try to join the chat Moderation panel from the count via the BatPhone but no promises as I’m moderating a similar chat on the Gib results at the same time. Busy busy busy. And not in a good way.

David Vance and David Mosque are Duty Moderating Heroes for yet another evening…

It’s a 10:30pm kick off. You know where to be. And how much alcohol to bring.

Question Time tonight comes from Dagenham.

On the panel Ken Clarke, Chuka Umunna, someone from Dragon’s Den called Deborah Meaden, Canadian-American journalist David Frum and union boss Mary Bousted.

So David Frum is the token right-winger. Nobody would ever accuse Ken Clarke of filling that chair, could they?

It’s a 10:30pm kick off. You know where to be. And how much alcohol to bring.

It’s a 10:30pm kick off. You know where to be. And how much alcohol to bring.
