Question Time Commentary

There's a great many inside public sector who don't. One of the biggest problems, at least by the time I left, was that you had to spend so much time and effort proving what you were doing was value for money, it no longer actually was.

I don't imagine that will have changed to the extent it needs to have done since.
Yep. Public sector procurement is a convoluted mess:

Keeping money in the local economy - Tim Aker MEP

No. Solution is deregulate/simplify and increase transparency, not regulate more.
 
Only got round to watching this and so far not got past the first question about austerity. It was good the George the Poet confirm the use of food banks as gone down from the previously touted 1 million a year to 500,000 a year. Shows something must be working.
 
I attended two trial filmings of QT today, both part of seeking the next Chair/presenter.
Emily Maitlis was up first, looking notably fragrant.
I thought she handled it all well.
She was followed by Kirsty Wark, wearing tracksuit bottoms (at 63, honestly).
Wark, in character, interrupted 15 times (I was keeping 5 bar gates); Maitlis not once.

The panelists included Camilla Tominey, who was excellent - on message, articulate, amusing, confident.
Wes Streeter was pathetic - a 'speak your weight machine' for Labour party policy, who was laughed at when he claimed they were united on Brexit.
Helen Whatley, an up 'n comer for a safe Conservative seat in mid-Kent with Health sector experience was impressive.
Ash Sarkar, a 26 y/o mouthy lady who is a self-described communist, was allowed at the end to get away with calling Boris Johnson a racist - irrespective of the fact that his second wife is half-Indian.
Lastly, possibly one to watch in Emma Whelan, a young blogger, who among other things takes on feminists - "middle class wimmin with nothing better to do".

I've watched Emma Whelan a number of times, she holds her own ground well.

Are these candidates the final selection?

If so, as its the BBC I think Emily may get it.

I almost started a thread about this news but luckily, I did a search and found you had already posted this. Tommy Robinson has done those lads no favours at all. If he really did have their interests at heart, he wouldn’t have posted this video. In fact he wouldn’t even have filmed it.

Those lads are new recruits and most likely as non political as you would find among many, if not most of today’s youth. They may have recognised a familiar face and been up for a laugh with someone they think is a popular celebrity but the facts are that whether you like Tommy Robinson’s politics or not, they are controversial.

I hope there aren’t any serious repercussions for those lads other than being given advice to walk away from this kind of situation if it occurs again.

Tommy Robinson knew exactly what he was doing. Those lads didn’t. He should apologise and give an undertaking that he will not in future involve young soldiers or any other branch of the military in attempts to appear to be popular with military personnel and have their support for his politics.

so come on do tell - how did you get to attend this?
 
Could not be easier, go onto the Q T website !
on on a scale of 1-10, how fit is Emily Matlis?
on a scale of 1-10, would you?
on a scale of 1-10, is she mental?
 
Fit: A 7-8 as I reckon she'd go a few rounds. I would without batting an eyelid. She'd probably be hard on the ears given her apparent political leanings.
My worry is if she's mental on leftie luvvie stuff, I bet she's a right head the ball on putting shoes away, not helping with the washing and leaving bloke shite on work surfaces, like keys/wallet and not putting used socks and shreddies in the washing basket or cleaning the sink after a shave.

Brazilian but quite possibly shaven haven in my mind, which would compensate, but an utter headcase and I bet proper shouty as well
 
If she looks harassed and tired it's because of a stalker. He's back in prison again, although his previous sentence was three years so presumably he was let out early.
yep its a bit difficult for me commenting on ARRSE, what we me having to hide the mobile form the crews, but most of them are ex services so its not too bad. I did say I'd stop the stalking before they sent me down again but they didnt believe me. I cant believe how much things have changed:oops:
 
Fraser Nelson, a very respectable journo, and Tim Montgomerie, whose words usually have a ring of truth. I haven't seen Brendan O'Neill on any of these things; I wonder if he's unhappy at being a talking head?
