Question Time tonight, on the day of the Barnsley by-election, comes from Derby.
On the panel we have Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith MP. Fresh from her recent victory over Cathy Ashton in the regional heats of International Face Like A Horse, there is the local Labour MP and former foreign secretary (really) Margaret Beckett. Also former Labour minister ‘Lord’ Malloch Brown, historian David Starkey and economist and journalist Liam Halligan.
For those playing the Buzzword Bingo we’ll be using the Pointless Voting Rules. Voting will be just about over in the Welsh Referendum to change the way the Assembly votes on…zzzzzzzzzzz *snore* and Barnsley will be voting in Mugabesque percentages for a lamppost with a red rosette on it. That leaves us open to Thatcher, Miners, and Doom. All three on your card and in the same sentence wins 100 points and a B-BBC coffee cup.
LibDem Meltdown and UKIP or BNP Surge also score tonight, with double points if used in an attack on the Coalition. Defence Cuts make a predicable return to the Bingo card this week, although Sea Harriers Scrapped by Labour in 2004 isn’t on your card as it won’t be mentioned. Play your Libya Chaos joker quickly for bonus hidden prizes.
The LiveBlog will also cover the insane This Week, with Andrew Neil, Michael Portillo, a random lefty politician (probably Jacqui Smith now that the inconvenient expenses
theft fraud lies stuff has been airbrushed out of history) and a collection of X-Factor rejects.
TheEye and David Mosque will be operating a no-fly zone here from 10:30pm.
