1. It was broadcast live.
2. There was a point to the edition, as none of us, AFAIAW, will be voting on who will be the new leader.
3. This format happened between Bliar, Howard & Kennedy during the GE.
Now this probably belongs in the NAAFI but who let that "ethnic female student" in? Bl88dy Beeb and its inclusivity perhaps they could have included someone who could string a sentence together! They ticked all the boxes with that one didnt they? Race, Yoof, Sex, Single Parent, Student and "Challenged" WTF happened there! Bring back Maggie she'd not have been allowed in. If that had been Bliar or one of his cronies the Stasi would have jumped on her and thrown her out. I missed what the response was to her question as I was screaming abuse at the TV!
Either way david the elder gets my vote, not that I have one but come the revolution most of the guest list of Have I got news for you will be safe!
