Question Time Commentary

#1
Must be plenty of arrsers that watch question time every Thursday. It certainly winds me up and boils the blood.

Thought it would be good to have a thread to discuss the points raised, or to slag off the tossers on the panel

Chukka is coming across well tonight and surprisingly, so is Gove.

The non-politician brand is not doing well. But naive on immigration in my view. I never thought she was funny anyway

I stopped watching QT ages ago when Dimbleby lost the power to actually control his panel and audiences. On top of that the Beeb now seem more interested in the views of brain-dead so-called celebrities.

Apart from that the programme is OK, but I still won't watch it in its current format.

The celebreties piss me off generally. They can bang the drum and stick the knife in, but don't get put on the spot themselves.
Will self is usually on there - so called intellectual, massive twat

The celeb member on the panel Is usually a leftie. I do remember some 'right wing' journalist on the Liverpool shoe, saying that Thatcher was good for the UK and Britain. Didn't go down well!

Gave it up when it dawned on me that there might be some loading of the audience going on. And because I realised that, with my neighbour across the landing texting me to ask if I was watching QT*, that I might be getting so wound up by the BS coming from the panel that I could be doing myself a mischief on the elevated blood pressure front.

So, was it Jo, Katy or Russel...?



* She could hear me shouting at the telly.

I must be a sadist watching it.

It's Jo Brand tonight. I think I'd shag Russell before her. He has longer hair anyway.

Oh, God - she's gopping. A swollen horse - Millie Tant but with hair and without the silly little hat. When I heard she was married I reckoned she'd hooked a blind man. Then I heard she was up the duff and though, "How can you tell?" Way back when before she got on TV and "hit the big time" she did a turn in our student's union. She was about as funny as a curry-fuelled fart in a lift. All pointing at various males in the audience and slagging them off for any obvious physical defect like jug-ears or any perceived character flaw (Hey, girls - I bet he's, etc, etc...). It wasn't comedy or even banter and it wasn't funny, either. You could tell which girls were the leftie "student politics" feminazi ones - they were roaring with laughter. Everyone else was minding their own business, wondering when the next act (which was The Rubber Bishops - Bill Bailey and a chum, before Bailey went solo and HTBT. They were fantastic). The only time there was an act that raised not a titter and was about as hilarious as a dose of penile warts was Mark LaMarr - and, thankfully, that tossbotty seems to have crawled back under his rock.

Katy Brand on the other hand has always seemed quite good fun and not completely unattractive - even moreso if she dropped a few pounds (mass not money).

I came across this whilst looking for (and not finding) a decent pic of Millie to underline the above. Bottom right, by Noel...

I do watch it but of course you are right it is boring these days. Dimbleby is pinching his wages, he's no Robin Day and it's poor viewing. The WRVS would find better presenters.

I remember a few weeks ago, QT managed to assemble a left-leaning audience
in Clacton-on-Sea on the eve of an election where UKIP achieved a small landslide.

Only the BBC could achieve that.

I read a piece by a former QT employee. He claimed that standard practice was to send a couple of "researchers" down to the local Labour clubs and student socialist societies a few weeks before QT is filmed. They hand out audience application forms and instruct the comrades to tick the box claiming that they are Tories.

Used to watch it every week until the post 9/11 show where the BBC had clearly loaded the audience with the dregs of the SWP and other anti-American groups. It was a ******* disgrace. Now only watch it occasionally, with the same reservations about Dimbleby and celebs as A-Y commented upon. Mick Hucknall was a classic case in point, utterly clueless, mumbling irrelevance. Now, Christopher Hitchens, he was worth listening to.

I well remember the Nick Griffin episode. Don't get me wrong - that odious little shitehawk well deserved it and since then he has steadily disappeared up his own fundament, at least as far as the press coverage I pick up is concerned. However, it was a travesty in clear loading, attack bias and audience placement along with a clear departure from the established format that caused more headlines than what Griffin actually tried to say.

A commercial broadcaster with no charter obligations or public funding could have got away with or without the furore but it was a travesty from the BBCs standpoint - and for its standing, in my opinion.

Yerz, one couldn't ones eyes off her, but the discussion around immigration was polite, and well presented. Mr Dumbledore should really retire now and let Paxo or Jeremy Clarkson take over QT!
