Question Time LiveBlog 19th April 2012

Tonight Question Time comes from Leeds.

On the panel tonight Conservative party co-chairman and beacon of promoted-beyond-their-ability tokenism Sayeeda Warsi, shadow home secretary and screechy self-righteous harpy Yvette Balls (Cooper), the Respect MP and professional cat impersonator George Galloway, president of the Liberal Democrats and odious backstabbing leadership-wannabe Tim Farron; and the Times columnist David Aaronovitch

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

See you here later!

    So that’s why Yvette Cooper has had a makeover this week. though the shallow harpy tone hasn’t changed.

    Are these the people who matter in this country? No wonder its a hellhole. I’d rather pull my front teeth out with pliers than watch this gaggle of idiots.


    • Llew says:

      Won’t get a mention, but if someone sneaked into the audience and did ask the question you can bet DD will very quickly interrupt and divert the discussion. away.

    I`m writing this in the hope that Warsi can not only read, but might take a few tips.
    1. When the “Granny Tax” comes up-remind those around you about Shriti Vaderas mockery of those pensioners losing their cardis without compensation as she and Byers lied and schemed to put Railtrack into administration without any good reason.
    . When pensions get mentioned-remind us all about who bankrolled the Labour Party before he took an early bath in 1991…and the name of the bloke who reduced our pensions to crap as he promised us all an end to boom and bust.
    3. When the incompetence of the useless Coalition comes up re Qatada, at least say that this Government have at least another seven years before they`re as shit at removing scum as the last Labour lot were-remind us all who lost the tax discs, who opened the borders so we got a hundredfold increase in expected migrants at one point: and , of course< who lost thousands aof convicted criminals and let them walk the streets with no prospect of being found-let alone deported!
    Isn`t it bad when the likes of me have to tell unelected totem poles of inconsequence like Warsi what they actaully need to research or to say as the liberal clowns and connivers gang up on her.
    4. And do warn Galloway about his presumptions to Islam are dangerous as far as Allah says they are.
    That said-Galloway at least can talk, argue and make mincemeat of the assembled poltroons around him tonight.
    Dreadful, dreadful stuff…any chance of this show being hived off and sold to Fray Bentos for rendering into glue?


    • Llew says:

      Dream on. The “tory” will just take it,, like they do week after week, and if horror of horror Warsi does try to bite back, there’s at least 4 others on the panel who will instantly talk over her so her point gets drowned out or diverted.


      • Mice Height says:

        Shouldn’t that be “weak after weak”?


      • johnnythefish says:

        Excellent observation. I think Cameron has gone on record as saying he does not want to engage in yah-boo politics. Well guess what, Dave, being nice to your opponents and taking it on the chin doesn’t work and hasn’t done since Blair became Liebour leader. Mobilise the attack dogs and get the mantras working (‘no more boom and bust’ reminders would be a good start) – the majority of the electorate don’t have a long enough attention span to understand any other way.


  4. Cassandra King says:

    You forgot to mention the BBC special rigged audience, these specially and carefully selected leftist and green and far left and progressive left guests invited on to cheer their ideological comrades and jeer and boo their ideological enemies.

    BBC question time, its a show trial until the real things can be fixed at some point in the future, the stocks and rotten fruit and fun for all the family.


  5. David Preiser (USA) says:

    The LibDems are in Government, so if anything, the BBC can claim that the panel is actually balanced in favor of the Government (even though there’s not a single member of Cabinet or anything present) and against Labour. Why, there’s only that strange teenage boy Ed Balls married, and Galloway isn’t even Labour. The Times guy will be classified as an Uncle Rupert minion, so the producers will be congratulating themselves on this panel stacked against Labour as proof that they’re not biased.

    Having the LibDems in the Coalition is a boon to Question Time balance math. They can dance around the Left vs. Right problem nearly every week.


  6. Merlin says:

    Question (but no real answers) Time is nothing but a metro-trendy middle class idle chitchat show, a Werbung moment for the self-important and self-congratulatory narcissists to gloat over their self-righteousness and lefty wing calibre.


  7. Mice Height says:

    Where’s Shameless CrappyBatty? I would’ve put my mortgage on her appearing to defend Abu Qatada this week.
    She used to be on more often than Billy Bragg, but we haven’t been subjected to her for months now.
    I’m not complaining, just curious.


  8. whitey says:

    Shameless CrappyBatty and Owen Shoutie are brilliantly conceived pseudonyms. Please let’s have more.


  9. Betty Swollocks says:

    Yeah, I was surprised Crappybatty was not on the panel, maybe she will be on next week if hairy man Guitarder is still newsworthy.


  10. bup says:

    Very rarely watch this but did so last night.

    The rank hypocrisy of the truly vile Galloway ripping into ‘millionaires in the Cabinet’ when he is one himself and criticising the Bahraini regime who are not a patch on his old chums, Saddam and his sons.

    Cooper as disgusting as her husband – every answer a Party Political Broadcast On Behalf Of The Labour Party with big cow eyes to the audience.

    The Lib Dum so wet I’m surprised he managed to stay in human form for the whole programme and not flow away.

    Sayeeda Warsi – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: like very, very few on that programme she is not afraid to dish it out to any/ all of the other guests, dimbleby, and the audience.
