Question Time Live Chat

David Dimbleby hosts this weeks pantomime from London. On the panel: Conservative business minister Anna Soubry MP, former Editor of Le Monde Natalie Nougayrede, Daily Mail columnist Sir Max Hastings, Labour’s shameless Andy Burnham MP and last and very much least, even with Andy Burnham on the show, Al Jazeera presenter, propagandist and infidel baiter Mehdi Hasan. Promises to be interesting with the decidedly unapologetic Hasan and Ms Nougayrede bearing in mind last Fridays horrific events in Paris.

Kick off tomorrow (Thursday) at 22.35

    Poor old Anna Soubry . She can’t pull one of her stupid ” I’m shocked to hear that ” faces when a UKIP person is talking .


    • Charlatans says:

      Soubry – A nasty piece of work at times. The following clip really shows how both Soubry and that class warrior Thornberry, attempt to trash Nigel Farage, who has proved his predictions to come true.


      • taffman says:

        Current events have come swiftly along to bite Soubry on her big arse (please excuse the old English).


  2. Julio says:

    It’s odd that there are two non-politician guests on every week since the election, when there used to be 4 politicians and a comedian / reporter / columnist / actor / Will Self on every week prior to the election. Is it because the Lib Dem vote collapsed and Lib Dem MPs are rarer than hen’s teeth nowadays?


  3. Wiser Monkeys says:

    Oh go on, give yourself a real treat before QT comes on … Watch the wondrously two-faced panel member here:

    We at love to see Dr Jeyklls turning into Mr Hydes, so we’re giving you a buy-one, get-one-free offer:

    Anyone for a cup of Taqiya?


    • johnnythefish says:

      So according to Mr Husan non-Muslims live their lives like animals.

      One of the commenters below the first video asked why this scumbag is still being given airtime. Why indeed – yet here he is again.

      No doubt Dimbledick will be unable to find the balls to challenge Hasan on his real, Islamofascist views and instead allow him to taqqiya his way through the programme as the moderate voice of British Islam.

      Or I could be wrong and he is finally held to account. LOL.


      • wronged says:

        According to the Qua’ran non believers are infidels and are to be viewed as lower than cattle.

        RIP Alf Garnett, Islam you silly Moo!!


    • Roland Deschain says:

      Non-Muslims live their lives as animals? As opposed to chopping off heads, stoning rape victims, hanging people from cranes, he means?

      Is it too much to hope that some panellist will bring this up?

      P.S. Does anyone else keeping finding themselves randomly logged out?


  4. Dave S says:

    I hope it is not a repeat of the post 9/11 show. That must have been the nadir of QT.


    • TrueToo says:

      Strangely enough, that awful 9/11 QT is on YouTube, for anyone here with a very strong stomach.


  5. Guest Who says:

    Maybe the panel, and audience, and BBC can confront the real issue of concern, namely the right wing backlash that strikes fear into the hearts of the Muslim community after the latest terrible events at the hands of those claiming to do it in the name of Islam? The choice of Mehdi Hasan at such a time is inspired in this regard, and shows the BBC’s value, nay vital role in calming tensions.

    Quite how they all steer around the main reaction I am aware of, namely the stabbing of a Jewish teacher by ‘IS (that Daesh thing really not catching on) supporters’ will be interesting to hear.

    Unless that is not covered. As can happen, given the BBC chooses the audience, the questions and Dimbles is there to keep panellists in line. Maybe Mehdii can tap his arm to intercept if things steer off narrative?


  6. Wells says:

    When you look at things dispassionately, does deliberately allowing millions of potential enemies into your countries not strike you all as distinctly odd?

    Hypothetically speaking, let us say all the conspiracy theories about a One World Government are true.
    Then would it not make sense to create/use a common enemy and then allow huge numbers of that enemy to infest your towns and cities until it reaches the point where something must absolutely be done or else we face annihilation?

    To create a crisis that has only one predictable outcome, civil war, and then sit back and let others do your work for you.

    I’m not actually saying I believe this, but the sheer weirdness of what we have been doing for so long does rather lend itself to something kind of strange behind-the-scenes plan.

    If the EU truly does face a surge to the Right, then surely these Right wing Governments may join together to help each other eradicate our foes? I for one would certainly support this, but perhaps this is exactly what is meant to happen.

    What do you guys think? I’m not making a judgement call on the above, but the apparent lunacy of EU policies does to me seem like there may be an overarching plan here and Im trying to think what it could be.


    • TrueToo says:

      No, I think that’s way too subtle and too many thing could and would go wrong.

      For example, I think Pat Condell had it right when he said that Merkel, by welcoming the entire Islamic third world to her bosom, is committing suicide out of shame over Germany’s past, as she strives to prove that Germany has overcome that past.

      And Sweden has encouraged and facilitated the Islamic invasion out of a touchy-feely, compassionate zeal so blind and so excessive that it borders on insanity.

      And the EU – without doubt a socialist, left-wing plot hatched ages ago with the aim of lefty domination of vast swathes of the planet.

      Muslims have no doubt observed its evolution with keen interest since the EU bears such fabulous promise for the Caliphate. Those EU lefty leaders better convert, and quick.


      • Wells says:

        Yeah my instincts tell me that it is just general human/leftist incompetence that has taken us to the brink, but sometimes I entertain the idea that perhaps there could be something more going on.

        I also worry that somehow the Islamic threat may be averted only to be replaced with even more leftist policies, such as trying to abolish all remnants of personal liberty in the crusade against “religious” extremists and the ever further promoting of PC ideals as a response to Islamism which is no doubt equated with the Right by the BBC et al

        For example is it so hard to believe that the BBC/Left will switch from being pro-Muslim to being anti-ALL religion and that many people will indeed go along with that.

        Speaking as a Christian myself I find it disturbing already how the Left is starting to promote the idea that all religion is to blame rather than the religion which is actually doing all the bad stuff.

        However this is all predicted in the Bible so Im not surprised.


        • TrueToo says:

          For example is it so hard to believe that the BBC/Left will switch from being pro-Muslim to being anti-ALL religion and that many people will indeed go along with that.

          The unholy alliance between the left and Islam is unfortunately here to stay, in my opinion. True, they are very strange bedfellows indeed, but I think the union is permanent.


          • Demon says:

            “True, they are very strange bedfellows indeed”

            At first glance they appear strange but when you think about it they have a lot in common:

            They hate the West, they hate democracy, they hate true freedom, they hate Israel, they hate Jews, they hate the truth, they hate Christianity especially the Catholic Church, they hate people who can think for themselves, they hate the White race, they hate the British armed forces, they hate the Police Force. What a lot of hate these peoples have – it explains a lot.

            All I can think of that they love is violence, aggression, intimidation, lieing etc.

            They are both hypocritical and filled with envy for people who have achieved more due their abilities and hard work.


          • Rob in Cheshire says:

            It’s almost as if they have a common purpose.


    • johnnythefish says:

      Hypothetically speaking, let us say all the conspiracy theories about a One World Government are true.
      Then would it not make sense to create/use a common enemy and then allow huge numbers of that enemy to infest your towns and cities until it reaches the point where something must absolutely be done or else we face annihilation?

      Wells – It’s no conspiracy theory as the UN and their eco-socialist partners (what a complex web they inhabit) are quite open about it (ref Agenda 21). The common enemy, identified early doors by The Club of Rome as the cause it had long been looking for to unite mankind, is global warming.

      You might find this analysis interesting – it’ll give you a feel for what democracy is up against:

      E.g. The Gorbachev Foundation was created by Mikhail Gorbachev immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union. He described the Foundation “as a think-tank whose purpose is to explore the path that global governance should take as mankind progresses into an interdependent global society.” The overall motto of the Gorbachev Foundation is “Toward a New Civilization”


    • Geyza says:

      Hypothetically speaking, If you were a political leader, who wished to increase surviellance and control over your people, to make more and more people utterly dependent upon the state, to create a situation in which electoral success should be guaranteed, one may consider utilising the well-known Islamic principle of retaliatory or retribution based justice. It would require that hypothetical PM to create a justification for invading Muslims lands, it may require having to repeatedly tell lie after lie after lie about some invented threat or other to our country. Then have our military invade and slaughter thousands and thousands of Muslims based on that false and deception based justification.

      Whilst this is happening, you open your borders to all and sundry, especially those Muslims in those lands where you are killing thousands of people’s immediate relatives.

      Then you could introduce some sort of benefits system here, whereby over 60% of the electorate become entitled to some form of state benefits, including the aforementioned Islamic immigrants. Ensure that each of the four wives of each Muslim are also entitled to housing benefits too.

      Downplay any link at all between the Muslims we kill in their countries and the anger and fury that fuels the Muslims who seek retribution, and ensure that all violent Islamic activity is linked to being a backlash against “far right extremists” here at home.

      Then once things kick off violently here, push for more and more surviellance and controls here to control the backlash, and ensure that there is no racist “racial profiling” to protect people from the violent Islamic actions and ensure that ALL of our people are under suspicion, because terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, remember.

      Of course I do not buy into wild conspiracy theories, and the mere notion of invading Muslims lands which enrage their people, whilst opening up our borders to such enraged people and welcoming them in, is so diabolically insane, that no British Government would ever even consider it. It would also require that our trustworthy leaders would have had to lie about the reason for going to war. Again surely, it is self evident that none of our elected leaders would ever lie us into a war situation.

      So obviously there is no conspiracy to use an Islamic backlash against lie based and illegal invasions of their countries, to impose control orders and surviellance and introduce legislation to outlaw British extremism and Islamophobia and control what we do and even what we are allowed to think. Such an idea is clearly utterly laughable.

      If we had, for example, invented lies about, oh, I don’t know, …….. maybe Weapons of Mass Destruction, being held against UN resolutions in …… let’s think….. Iraq perhaps. And if we had invaded that country, and other Muslim countries and caused significant loss of Islamic life…. and the well-known Islamic justice based on retribution would have stirred western backed, armed and funded groups to form. And if we had also opened our borders to these Muslims and welcomed them with generous benefits…. Then I could, maybe, believe it.

      Because obviously none of that happened, otherwise it would have been in the media and would be so blatantly self evident that our free media, especially the BBC, would expose such a conspiracy for what it is. So obviously true, as to require said leadership to tried and thrown in jail.

      Well, Blair is not in jail, The BBC are still fully supporting the labour party and we hear continuously that Islam is peaceful and terrorism has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam. So it cannot possibly be true.

      Now see if you can spot any sarcastic cynisism in the above.


  7. ObiWan says:

    Hmmm. Subject myself to an hour of Medhi Hasan reminding us all that the Paris attacks were ‘nothing to do with Islam’ and, anyway, it’s all the fault of ‘the West’ and you’re racist if you dare to say any different… or play some more Star Wars Battlefront (just released!) online?

    Decisions, decisions.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      I believe Mehdi is a Shi’ite, so the good thing about IS is that they would happily saw his head off as a heretic. See, there’s always a silver lining if you look hard enough.


  8. Geoff says:

    Regardless of the make up of the panel we can be assured that the audience will be made up of plenty of scarved women and other ‘moderates’ just to rub our noses in the diversity of our 5th column. They will of course be given plenty of time to spread their taqiyya nice and thick….


  9. ID says:

    Thanks for the health warning about Mehdi.
    If that twat is on, I would proably explode like an INTDWI suicide bomber , but without the aid of a belt.
    What a French? Farce this programme will be. It is painful watching something as moribund as QT and Dimblebore linger in this way. Maybe there is an organisation in Switzerland that could end their suffering.


  10. s.trubble says:

    Littlejohn is calling that IZAL.
    Those who can remeber it will recall a toilet tissue paper a cross between greaseproof paper and a Radio Times.


    • Roland Deschain says:

      Oh yes. Like wiping your arse with tracing paper. To similar results.


    • Guest Who says:

      At school it was referred to as ‘British Rail smoothies’ and yes, of less than optimal efficacy for the task at hand.


    • Chop says:

      I remember that stuff in my grandparents outdoor loo….ahhhh, the 70’s were truly golden times…and quite smeary…genuine austerity back then, when we had to laminate our bog rolls to re-use…tsk, yoof of today have no idea.


      • Rob in Cheshire says:

        Or you could cut the Daily Mirror into four inch squares, which was much the best use for it.


  11. CranbrookPhil says:

    Just Googled Ms Nougayrede & discover she wrires for the Guardian, what a surprise! The usual QT three (plus audience) against two.


    • ObiWan says:

      That would be the famous BBC impartiality™ at play. It’s only ‘impartial’ if it’s a loaded dice from the start, guaranteed to produce a predetermined outcome.

      What a joke the BBC are. An expensive and unfunny joke, at that.


  12. wronged says:

    As a regular watcher of QT (glutton for punishment) I envisage that this episode will be full of lefty slush, with as usual no substance into any subject and and lefty biased audience. Whats more is it is not even coming from England. It is coming from the independent multicultural Marxist country called London. (Formerly considered to be a part of the UK).

    1. Paris
    Why we should bend over backwards to show even more kindness to our Muslim brother and sisters.
    Why we should not attack our enemies with air attacks in Syria.
    How the brand of the Islam faith is anything other than a Religion of Peace.

    I wonder if Dumbleby will allow Mehdi Hasan to finish his sentence like he doesn’t allow UKIP panellist to finish theirs.

    This could be’ The Mehdi Hasan Show’.

    2. Voting
    How is it that 16 year olds can go to war (which they currently cannot),smoke, drink and have sex and yet cannot vote.
    Answer is plain and simple they are too immature at that age. Mind you I wouldn’t allow people to vote until they are at least 35 years old.

    As Lord Forsyth mentioned in the House of Lords this week, there are only four countries in the world today who allow 16 year olds to vote in the General Elections they are Austria, Nicaragua,Brazil and Cuba.

    Cameron opened the door to this debate with the Scottish referendum age of enfranchisement being 16. Sorry to all you Tories on this site but he really is a wally of the highest order.


    • Xavier says:

      Cameron is a disgrace to conservatives everywhere. He’s not a conservative with a little ‘c’. He’s something else that begins with a ‘c’. A rather big one.


    • Rob says:

      At 16 you are responsible enough to vote. But you are not responsible for buggaring off to Syria from school to be a little slag.

      Yes the bBBC want it both ways………………… Probably a bit like said girl


  13. Roland Deschain says:

    How many times will the phrase “Nothing To Do With Islam” be trotted out? I forecast 6 utterances.


    • wronged says:

      ‘It is nothing to do with Islam’. So it’s our fault then!!


    • ID says:

      I think someone might even be brazen enough to use ROP and INTDWI in one sentence.
      But will there be Big Beards and Niqabs, the IS uniform, in the audience ? About as tactful as dressing up in an SS uniform to visit the Auschwitz memorial site.


  14. gb123 says:

    I published this a few days ago and I still think it responds to the INTDWI brigade. Maybe the only way get one of the ISIS people on the panel to answer questions.

    “This is a great response to the nothing to do with Islam mob. It is written in the style of a Monty Python script.

    The post starts like this:
    “It must be incredibly frustrating as an Islamic terrorist not to have your views and motives taken seriously by the societies you terrorize, even after you have explicitly and repeatedly stated them. Even worse, those on the regressive left, in their endless capacity for masochism and self-loathing, have attempted to shift blame inwardly on themselves, denying the terrorists even the satisfaction of claiming responsibility.

    It’s like a bad Monty Python sketch:” “


    • Mrs Kitty says:

      Being in France and having to rely on I player which means waiting an extra hour for it to raise my blood pressure I’m afraid I’m going to wait for the reviews from watchers on this site.


      • Chop says:

        Living in England, very close to the enriched epicentre of stupidity, I refuse to even watch it, not since the hatchet job on Nick Griffin (not a fan, but how often was he right….pity about the Jew hating n all that)


  15. Geoff says:

    I’m just waiting for the spontaneous round of applause when that ole chestnut ‘Islam is the religion of peace’ is mentioned…


  16. ObiWan says:

    Okay, it’s clear now how this is going. Hasan, in league with the Guardian stooge, has successfully convinced everyone the problem is Syria, not those vicious rag heads running around the desert killing everyone. Hasan doesn’t want us to do anything – a genuine council of despair.


  17. Geoff says:

    That gobby ‘poor muslim’ guy in the audience is no stranger to TV and the BBC…


  18. Pounce says:

    Did I hear right with Hasan saying your Prime.Minister about DC


  19. Pounce says:

    Secondly has the UkDropped weapons on Syrian Rebels


  20. Pounce says:

    I see the paki twat is playing the pro Islamic crowd


  21. ObiWan says:

    Max Hastings is such a disappointment.


    • wronged says:

      The programme has degenerated into a farce. Muslims who put their faith first and country second in Britain have a contradictory view of priorities. The programme failed to question what the beliefs are in terms of how they view their fellow ‘countrymen’ in Britain. Are we infidels, are we cattle, are there really virgins up there waiting for members of their faith, etc,etc.

      Mehdi hasan is on record as believing in every word written in the Queer Ann.

      This would get to the root of the problem.

      I said it last week but it needs to be said again and again.Please sack Dimbleby, on more than one occasion he completely lost control of the panel.


      • G.W.F. says:

        Does he also believe every word in the Haddiths? I am rather fond of the passage which indicates a limit on Allah’s power, the bit where it says that Satan farts loudly when Muslims pray so Allah won’t hear the prayers. But if Allah is so omnipotent why can’t he design a cork to fit Satan’s arse?

        Shades of the old theological argument about the limitation of God’s omnipotence – can He make a stone that is too heavy for Him to life?

        Come on, let’s have a theological debate with these guys.;theme=30


    • GCooper says:

      Not if you’d observed him at the Telegraph, he isn’t. He is exactly the arrogant, pompous fool you’d have predicted.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      “Max Hastings is such a disappointment.”

      He has been for years.


      • Charlatans says:

        I also was a little disappointed with Max Hastings, since I really respect him from my Falkland War days.

        But the big revelation on QT last night, came from both the House of Commons members, Soubry and Burnham.

        They confirmed that both Conservatives and Labour have just not got a clue whatsoever how to handle Syrian crisis or this massive Muslim problem overall and attacks on the West in particular.

        Soubry was so surprised, offended even, when Medhi Hasan interjected with her and said Saudi also chops heads off: Her face contorted so much with indignation I thought she was going to be sick.

        Facts: If you get the Saudis, Qatari’s, Iranians or other Syrian neighborhood countries involved in this grand alliance being talked about they are NOT going to change any of the Qua ran Sharia medieval punishments? If they want to do that we need Blair and Bush back to blast and totally mess all these countries as well.

        Since Russia put the cat among the pigeons, deciding to look after their own interests with their Syrian bases’ , arms Sales to Assad and revenge for their Airliner bombed out of the sky recently, it is a different ball game now.

        I was hoping to hear:

        First priority – shore up our borders and those of the EU – since that is where yesterdays Paris Terrorists were popping in out of – twice this year alone for the leader of the attacks.

        Acknowledge the small, but might significantg Islam problem like Nigel Farage outlined the other night, and In double quick time, handle the UK radicalisation as a matter of priority in the Mosques, schools etc. Sort it out here before we go further.

        Get this world alliance mentioned above together in double quick time and discover exactly what each side thinks is possible and wanted before any decision by a UK Government.


  22. The Lord says:

    That was even worse than i expected it to be. And I thought it would be painful.


    • Pounce says:

      Wasnt it just. All I saw was an attempt to portray all this as the fault of the victims of mentioned countries foreign policies. For example dick head stated that ISIS are using British weapons, really because I can’t find any sign of that. The vast majority of weapons are Russian or Soviet. The irony here was the show was brought to its knees by the foaming at the mouth politics that the left use in which to try and sound out their opponents . Not one person mentioned Islam as the cause , all we heard was ..this is not Islam. Typical


  23. The Highland Rebel says:

    History repeating itself – Chamberlain and Chamberpot


  24. oldartist says:

    Why do I do this to myself, when I know exactly how it’s going to be? Life really is much too short. Anna Soubry making a complete fool of herself, trying to defend Saudi Arabia, the pathological liar Mehdi Hasan playacting the part of the moderate Muslim, Andy Burnam uttering a few platitudes in between political point scoring, a little bit of wisdom from Hastings, but not much and the other two having nothing useful to say whatsoever. As ever the star of the show in terms of unadulterated idiocy was the audience. I am afraid INTDWI has now become a mantra for brainwashed non Muslims who think Islam is just about their friendly newsagent, who they don’t really know and smiley ladies on cake shows.


  25. CranbrookPhil says:

    Simon Warr must have been a plant in the audience. It makes one wonder how many others are, I always suspected this but Warr sort of proves it.


    • Geoff says:

      Before his court case he was a regular contributor to the Jeremy Vine show.

      He may well still be, I no longer listen.


  26. Charlatans says:

    Wow – Andrew Neil on BBC1 ‘This Week’ last night – had a right good old rant about SCUMBAGS ISIS:

    Unblievable, I was in bed, dozing with the TV on, sort of dreaming I was listening to Fox TV slagging off ISIS big time. Opened my eyes, realised it was the BBC, sat bolt upright, nearly wet the bed and thought I must have died and gone to heaven:


    • Grant says:

      Wow ! Andrew Neil makes Pat Condell look like a pussycat. Great stuff. Brought tears to my eyes !


  27. Sluff says:

    Its saying a lot, but last night’s QT audience struck a new low for bias. Clearly the ‘impartial’ opinion expressed is one of pacifism, hoping to turn the other cheek, pretend nothing is happening, and the problem will go away. Most telling was the shot of a group of schoolgirls applauding some idealistic pro-multi culti nonsense. And the Lords are letting these people vote in the EU referendum.
    Another giveaway was when Hastings near the end tried to be a little uplifting (“they cannot possibly win”) and got lukewarm applause which to me strongly implied quite a lot of the audience hope they can.
    But to socialists who want to overthrow the market economy, a nice bit of ISIS initiated discord and a few bombings and atrocities is tactically quite useful – the enemy’s enemy is your friend.
    An utterly wretched programme.
    Which made, as Charlatan says, Andrew Neil’s contrasting astonishing outburst even more amazing. I thought he was pastiching but he went on and on and then stopped. I think he meant it. Wonder if he decided to do it under the noses of the editorial team and get it in quick. Full marks to Brillo.
