Labour Comms Officer Was the Question Time Liar

Remember this guy? The gobby Question Time audience member who made the false claim that Harold Wilson remained neutral in the 1975 referendum, rather than ask a question on Question Time. Jeremy liked his contribution so much he tweeted it out:

He name is Liam Shrivastava, he is according to his LinkedIn profile, a Communications Officer for the Labour Party:

So when people complained that it was like a Labour Party rally they weren’t wrong…

Question Time Teen Takes Down Labour and Lib Dems

Last night this teenager too young to vote in the EU referendum spoke for the nation, taking on Labour and the Lib Dems for failing to deliver the Brexit result. Cummings would be proud…

Who Is On Question Time Tonight?

Tonight Question Time comes to our screens from Tottenham, unusually there are two Tory MPs on the panel: Leave-voting Kwasi Kwarteng from Team Boris, and Remain-voting Margot James from Team Hunt. Kicking off the Tory leadership air war…

With Brexit Party supporter Tim Martin there too, that makes for two whole Leavers on the panel this week, although as far as Guido is aware, Laura Pidcock has never publicly declared her support either way for Leave or Remain. Surely the BBC haven’t made the grievous error of accidentally having a Leave-majority panel in a Leave-majority country?

Tonight Question Time comes to our screens from Brecon in Wales, and has an entire two Brexiteers on the panel this week! Goes some way to make up up for last week’s big fat zero

Who Is On Question Time Tonight?

Extraordinary panel tonight on the BBC‘s flagship political programme. Not one single panellist voted to leave the EU. A Daily Mirror hack, as well as that paper’s former editor. A Labour MP who works under John McDonnell and used to be an MEP. An SNP identikit frontbencher. And to balance them all out, the leading light of the Tory left. Wow.

Scottish Remain Voter: I Accept Democracy, SNP Does Not Speak For Me

Last night’s Question Time served as a good reminder that plenty of Remain voters do accept the results of referendums, despite the SNP pretending they don’t. Remainy unionists should think carefully about the precedent of forcing down second referendums…[…] Read the rest


Farage: This is a Coalition of Parliament Against the People

Nigel brought the house down on last night’s Question Time in his first answer. The whole episode isn’t one to miss, with Amber Rudd making the mistake of bizarrely attacking the readership of the respected flagship ConservativeHome website and nineteen year old Emily putting Anna Soubry in her place over a second referendum.[…] Read the rest


Who Is On Question Time Tonight?

Tonight’s Question Time is set to be the spiciest for weeks, featuring firebrand Remainers Anna Soubry and Amber Rudd, up against Brexiteer stalwarts Nigel Farage and John Mills. Labour’s Henry Bolton lookalike Jonathan Reynolds will also be there. Not one to miss…[…] Read the rest


Question Time’s Top Spots: 10-0 To Remainers

BBC Question Time has published statistics on which panellists have appeared on the programme most frequently. All of them were Remainers. 4/5 campaigned to join the Euro. We have posthumously determined that Charlie Kennedy would be a remainer given he was President of the euro-federalist European Movement.[…] Read the rest

Charles Moore Takes Question Time to Task on Balance

Guido was reminded of this research while watching Question Time last night – the research found that 86% of the time the panel was dominated by Remainers. Charles Moore pointed out that he was the only Leave voter on the panel, showing twice as many Remain voters appear on the programme than Leave voters.[…] Read the rest
