Question Time tonight comes from Eastbourne, which boasts of being the sunniest place in Britain based only on a freak statistic from 1911 and is the location of the third most popular suicide spot in the UK. The ashes of Frederick Engels were scattered there upon his death. Marvellous.
On the panel tonight we have…well, it’s just surreal. Question Time’s favourite minority box-ticker Baroness Warsi, the Labour guy who posed in a gay contacts magazine in his Y-fronts Chris Bryant, Bermondsey by-election “The Straight Choice” against Peter Tatchell – and who later turned out to be anything but straight; Simon Hughes, and eco-fascist Caroline Lucas. Kelvin MacKenzie occupies the lone chair of reality.
This LiveBlog doesn’t promise any improvement afterwards when the grim horror of This Week is lanced like an exploding corpulent pustule of stupidity all over our screens. Two washed up politicians, Andrew Neil and a surreal collection of F-List wannabes and never-will-be bores will escort the live-chat into the night.
Moderators TheEye and David Mosque will be sobbing quietly into their absinthe here from 10:30pm.
