Question Time - pre season run out

 Its that time again

David Dimbleby presents Question Time from Leeds, with Conservative planning minister Nick Boles, Labour's shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper, president of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron, UKIP's communities spokesman Suzanne Evans and Simon Jenkins, columnist for the Guardian and Evening Standard.

First show of the season is the charity shield of the Question Time Quiz.
Just a practice to check tactics and check fitness levels. Too many stories to choose from and only the Leeds teacher's murder looks like a nailed on question. So we play for honour and a tiny pixel trophy.

3 pt for a correct guess of the colour or pattern of Dimbleby's tie.{before 10pm} 

2 pt for an accurate spot for each of the question asked.
2 pt for being the sole entrant to correctly predict a question asked
1 arbitrary point for any partially correct questions, witty phrases, spotting the soundbite, joke, tweet or posting in the comments first.
And the league table will be winner = 1pt
Everyone else - Zero.

Twitter- its often better than the actual show. And its jammed full of  earnest political studies university students and their mickey taking History and English taking friends
