If looks could kill. Esther McVey’s replacement at DWP did not look impressed to be asked about whether she still supports the death penalty:
The Question Time set piece of Russell Brand vs Nigel Farage (VIDEO) was in danger of being upstaged at one point during tonight’s show — when the audience started fighting with each other over whether the UKIP leader was “a racist scumbag”: “I live in South Thanet and I’m coming for you, Nigel Farage, don’t […]
It’s happened before. Another UKIP panellist on Question Time … and UKIP’s scaremongering immigration rhetoric is slammed. This time the audience member is joined by Tory minister Anna Soubry.
Having previously called gay people “repulsive”, Ian Paisley Jr’s homophobic pedigree is not in doubt. Last night’s Question Time featured the unedifying spectacle of him goading Peter Tatchell: “You’re entitled to get married tomorrow, Peter. You’re just not entitled to get married to a man.” The studio audience seemed less than impressed.
Having this week prompted an EU Commission spokesman to storm of Newsnight by repeatedly calling him an “idiot in Brussels”, charming Daily Mail columnist Peter Oborne has once more covered himself in glory by attempting to convince an audience of Scousers that Margaret Thatcher showed “compassion” as Prime Minister: “I think she was a great woman but whatever she was […]

The Scrapbook team are banking on Ken Livingstone administering a richly-deserved televisual trouncing to compulsive […]
Numerous tweeters had noted the similarity between the shrill, shallow, populist Carol Vorderman and the shrill, shallow, populist Sarah Palin before a member of the audience did so with some style, adding that that Boris Johnson wasn’t the only Tory on the panel. Dimbleby had it about right: “This programme is an hour … it felt like […]
Sarah Teather seems to be compensating for her persistent and all-too-convenient absence from Parliament this year with an appearance on tonight’s Question Time. Given this week’s revelations on her office expenses, one assumes her exhortations that “thieves should not be attacked” bear an element of self-interest! From the look of Tory Bear’s teaser post, tomorrow’s Guy News […]
