Not that long ago. Live audience plus panellists who knew their stuff equals genuine debate, rather than the "bash the Tories" rhetoric we're suffering now.
If you want debate, make debate possible, or suffer what we have now.
I used to like QT, watched it for years, even during Brexit it could provide interest. I tried again last night after joining at the start of the program. Boring, dull and zero information or proper debate doesn't even begin to describe it. Watching tectonic shift is more entertaining and informative.
