    Tonight in about half an hour...

    Should be a goodun.

    A game I like to play is when watching this is to decide how balanced the BBC have been in two ways; 1, Panel Selection and 2, Audience Selection.

    The panel selection can be decided even before it starts and from the motley crew above I'd say it is pretty neutral politically with equal shares of ying and yang.

    The audience can only be gauged once it kicks off....

    Newcastle this evening so it should be quite lively.

    Quality - Val pointing out the Scots Saturday night sport of twatting each other round the head with empty bottles of Buckfast.

    Rod Liddle was good and that Labour lass was tongue tied when asked to name a "successful socialist country".
    QT's not been bad this series so far.
    This Week on after QT is just about the funniest show on TV right now IMO.

    Yes, it has been quite good so far.

    Even Thornberry only rolled her eyes and let the inner thug out a few times.

    Liddel, I think was quite weak this, he is usually extremely vocal and spot on with his points.

    Val McDermid was the star of the show though. I know very little about her but would assume she has Labour running through her like a stick Brighton rock, but she made many common sense points.

    Flat Eric aka Farron, what a muppet, always has been, always will be. Why he doesn't just join Labour I don't know.

    Zahawi may as well have not been there.


    As for This Week, I agree, best show on the TV. And if anyone accuses the BBC of being biased, from either side, all they have to do is watch it.


    .......isn't Abbot on next week?

    Yep Diane Abbot is on QT next week as she confirmed today - quote...
    "Only nine days to go before I'm on QT."

    I looked forward then to what will likely be some fine car crash TV next Thursday night.

    What's NOT to like about Diane Abbot?
    As a Conservative, one wishes her a long and productive career at the very top of today's Labour Party.

    Same sentiments here. She should continue sitting right by the side of the Labour party leader, hell she should be the leader! :okay:

    Who is that gurning lass with cane row dreads who sits to Corbyn's right in PMQ's?
    Endlessly amusing she is with her wide range of facial expressions.

    I've no idea but on the subject of gurning, I always try a strike a few in meetings. And I'm not alone, quite often there will be another gurning in there as well. The trick is to see who will blink first (keep a straight face.... if that is possible whilst in mid gurn).

    Many a long afternoon spent invigilating exams has been lightened by gurning.

    Blimey tonights one, only a few minutes in is a lively one.

    Very nice to see and hear a very pro brexit audience as well.

    I'm not watching the programme, but I suspect there are lukewarm remainers who accepted the referendum result who are now hacked off with political attempts to torpedo the process.

    General Brexit fatigue also comes into it - 'we told you what to do, bloody well get on with it'.

    Nicky Morgan and that labour woman with the very small mouth are getting hammered by the audience.

    Rebecca Long-Bailey?

    Barnsley was very Brexit. Ironic given the amount of EU money involved in South Yorks regeneration.
