Simon Schama V Rod Liddle on Refugees

TV historian Simon Schama won over the Question Time audience last night with this bizarre tongue lashing he dished out to Rod Liddle.

Schama “What’s really contemptible Rod, is saying emotion should have no part in how we actually respond”

Liddle “I’m interested in outcomes, not in your emotion…”

Schama “Do not presume to lecture me about the inadequacy of an emotional response. Go back to your journalistic hackery about outcomes and turn your suburban face away from the plight of the miserable.”

Who would have thought bashing the “suburban” would play well on the BBC?

Quote of the Day

Professor John Curtice makes a prediction on LBC…

“I will make a prediction. There are going to be a record number of non-Conservative and non-Labour MPs as a result of this election. That makes it difficult for the Tories and Labour to win an overall majority.”
