Question Time 14th January 2010

With 2010 now not just through the front door but making itself fully comfortable in your favourite armchair and smoking your cigars, we must surely be due a return to the weekly joy that is Question Time.

And indeed we are, for Question Time tomorrow comes from Finchley and the panel will feature amongst others Conservative MP Ken Clarke, comedienne Shappi Khorsandi and former Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie. More on the other panelists when details are published.

For those who wish to take part in the B-BBC Buzzword Bingo, we will be playing by the “Tudor Court Rules” meaning that ‘Thatchers‘ are worth double points and a ‘Climate Change‘ with an ‘Al Gore‘ on the same card means disqualification. The usual prizes will be awarded.

As usual, the live chat will begin here at 22:35 UK time. Please come and join us!

    Oh yeah. I bet THIS topic will come up on the QT.

    The BBC being all over the massive hate-campaign conducted by Mohammedans worldwide against Christians, Jews, Hindus, et al. 

    From today’s WSJ… 

    In Egypt, seven Coptic Christians were murdered yesterday by a Muslim gunman as they filed out of a midnight mass in the southern town of Nag Hamadi. In Pakistan, more than 100 Christian homes were ransacked by a Muslim mob last July in the village of Bahmaniwala. In Iraq that same month, seven Christian churches were bombed in Baghdad and Mosul in the space of three days.

    Such atrocities—and there are scores of other examples—are grim reminders that when it comes to persecution, few groups have suffered as grievously as Christians in Muslim lands. Fewer still have suffered with such little attention paid. Now a new report from the non-profit ministry, Open Doors USA, shines a light on the scale of oppression.

      What was the BBC’s justification for his dismissal? Did he receive a salary from the Angels?


      • All Seeing Eye says:

        My dead-tree copy of the Telegraph (so no link sorry) said that he was an “unofficial spokesman” which implies that no money changed hands. But the BBC would argue that you can ‘represent’ a third party without a salary. Under contract law they’d be within their rights to discipline him – he’d have to show that his contract was unduly and unfairly restrictive or that he’d received previous tacit consent from his employers to act in this way.

    Yet another Newsnight that appeared to be a Tory free zone. But as usual St Vince Cable was on to give ‘us’ his expert views on the banks.

    I guess time for yet another complaint to the drugged up arseholes at the BBC.


  3. Grant says:

    And yesterday’s Daily Politics was Tory-free, although Andrew Neil had a good go at Peter Hain about the Govt. failing to predict the cold weather. Hain said they took the advice of the Met Office. Andrew Neil said ” I predicted a cold winter months ago because I ignore Met Office predictions ”  !

    QT .  Assuming Shappi is a leftie, they will have to get 2 more lefties to attain the  normal QT balance !

    ” BBC guidelines prohibit staff becoming involved in political rows “.  well it depends which side they take. You couldn’t make it up.  But, Sally has committed the ultimate sin of siding with Iceland against Gordon the Moron.
    The BBC is a joke.


  5. Martin says:

    Have to laugh at the idea of getting rid of the BBC trust and replacing it with a board and external regulator. What a waste of time, any external regulator will simply be staffed with more ex BBC luvvies.

    Simply scrap the TV tax and let Ofcom deal with the BBC.

    Well predicted !   I see the 2 final panellists are Hain and Huhne. What a typical BBC stitch-up.
    Woops, I am talking to myself now. First sign of madness.
