    QT is yet another BBC product that is now so rotten I can no longer watch it.

    i don’t think i can face it. By-election next week in ‘Manchester’. Can UKIP possibly overturn Labour’s 15,000 majority?
    Who cares, says the BBC, who can find room for 4 left wing comedians. I don’t think I’ve seen Kate Andrews before but if she isn’t a lefty libtard, she’ll have her work cut out for her with those 4 + Dimbledum against her.

      Come to Mankychester and you’ll see the perfect definition of socialism and wiffenshor is the leading absolute shithole full of people whose only ambition is to have enough benefit money to get to the local pub fight night on a weekend.

      Mankychester is surrounded by satellite towns that are all the same, a smattering of decent suburbs surrounded by social housing estates that are a blot on the will never change, liebour have ruled the North forever…but it’s all Fatcher’s fault. It’s getting worse by the day.

    Wow. Those advance tweets to the Ken Livingstone fan club have definitely paid off. The BBC have clearly bussed them in en masse tonight to make up that usual ‘balanced’ audience.

    A total disgrace.

    Ten minutes plus discussing the funding of the NHS, yet amazingly managing not to mention the bloody big elephant sat in the corner of the consultation room….


    • R P McMurphy says:

      No your wrong without that elephant there wouldn’t be an NHS. I have heard this several million times on the BBC. Only work in it and run it, never use it by literally the million.

    I sensed that Matt Forde is beginning to see the real world away from sixth form lefty debating cabal. The albeeb will like him because he a Blairite. I’m not sure his comments will go down well in Marxist/Maoist comedy circuit.

    I noticed that very few hands went up in support of Matthew Hancocks pro bombing of Syria. Out of an audience of about 200 about 6 hands went up. Dumbleby picked someone who had only just spoken on the same subject!
    Dumbleby said, ‘oh come on there must be some of you out there’ when only a few hands went up.

    Not a biased audience, of course it was.

      He’s no fool, he knows it’s all rigged, but the money must be bloody good for a guy in his 70s. But if he has a shred of integrity left, he must hate himself for it. Then again he could be a psychopathic arsehole like Seb Coe. Takes all sorts.


  7. Sluff says:

    Usual set up. Light weight Tory pitched against various others.
    Actually and unusually I thought the debate between the panellists was quite good especially and surprisingly Forde showing up cuddly Ken Livingstone for the extremist he really is. The audience on the other hand was one of the most blatantly biased yet and yet again a woman with an ill child/learning difficulties/lots of kids/on low pay amazingly gets ‘randomly’ picked to emote on queue about the cuts affecting her blank cheque book entitlement.


  8. Charliebee says:

    W.r.t. The vexed question of ISIS(?). We yet again have debate about retaliatory military action – in Syria and uselessly wasting precious money and resources on it. Why the knee-jerk reaction when the issue of how to effectively deal with this dreadful scourge is who/where are they getting the funding from and cutting it off. That is never debated. The only political figure who has had the courage to raise the matter is Nigel Farage. What is the matter with them, I wonder.
