Question Time : Dodgier donors edition

No time .. Off to see Tommy Tiernan, despite my best efforts to avoid him.
Irish humour.
David Dimbleby presents topical debate from Stockton-on-Tees. The panel includes former Conservative deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine, Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Labour's shadow energy secretary Caroline Flint MP and star of Dragons' Den Duncan Bannatyne.

Usual rules
BQ thinks, off the top of my head.

1. Who has the dodgiest donors? Why did Miliband even get into this fight? No one cares but him. He knew he wasn't squeaky clean when he started pointing fingers. Has no one told him about glass houses?
2. Chelsea racist fans. Unlikely,but i shall punt it as its had a lot more coverage than expected. This sort of incident happens all the time on the tube. Not usually racially motivated. Usually a full train. I've pushed someone off myself when the doors couldn't be closed. The Chelsea one does seem a deliberate case though.
3. Obesity and cutting just a  media story and can't happen.
4. "God is with us!" In the Labour parties case, that is true.  More Marxists in the church than the Labour party. But best of friends again.
5. UKIP the movie. generated enough complaints to be an issue. But were they justified?

Ivwon't be back to see the Dimbytie. If some brave person could stomach the first few minutes of QT to report on the current Dimbletie colour..Please record it in the comments.

I'm going for Red with a Hammer and Sickle and a made in Russia tag

Nick Drew said...

are we doomed to domestic-only episodes when there is so much of importance going on elsewhere?

yes I suppose we are

(0) gaia-green-n-blue
(1) the sins of the energy companies - a chance for the useless Flint to trot out whatever is the current party line in her charmless way, and Heseltine to give her both barrels
(2) Greece, they just have to, partly to get Heseltine to say something pro-EU
(3) how about something really left-field, the '50 Shades' filum?
(4) has to be something for the Scottie, but via a 'devo-max for the N. of England?' question, which gets Hezza in again, they love Hezza & he's usually great value
(5) deflation, good or bad?

Hopper said...

1. We can't trust the Russkies, but what can we do about it?
2. If everyone is avoiding taxes, who can we trust?
3. Were the crusades behind the lopping off of Coptic heads?
4. I fancy a running-out-of-doctors question tonight. Should we give asylum to all the Cuban medics?
5. It's got to be UKIP - did C4 just say what everyone was thinking?

green tie with sheep

1, Should greece leave the euro
2, Dirty campaigns, are the tories funded by satan?
3. UKip - what is wrong with a nice documentary
4. WHy is cameron left out of the ukraine peace peace...
5. Who will the SNP choose as the next UK government?

Dick the Prick said...

Hello :)

1) Assuming this is border countries then the SNP may gain traction but isn't Stockton England?

2) Fat kids are genuinely funny

3) Tax dodging UBS and Credite Suisse taxing your European President

4) Newspapers - "read all about it, news just, drop the dead donkey..IT'S Question Time and there's an election

Nick Drew said...

green with red/orange beetles!

and the scottie fishwoman is wearing labour bat-bus pink!

CityUnslicker said...

falling unemployment, growth and lwo inflation - whay aren't the conservatives heading for a landslide?

Have Ant and Dec articulated what millions of people are thinking?

Is russia a real threat and are we prepared, since defence cuts

Should the 18-21 policy of making jobless work be extended to all jobless?

IN the event of a Labour minority government will the SNP be governing the UK?

CityUnslicker said...

Delayed scores:

Measured - 2

ND - 1 - amaing, a weired set of questions though

Hopper - 1

Cu - 1 + one for the tie

DP - 1

Shocking all round , did not get to what it but I htink I could have predicted all the answers and I am not sure I can endure and hour of Caroline 'the line' Flint and Nicola @boudicca of the North' Sturgeon.

Measured wins and as a prize has to watch next weeks programme!

measured said...

You spotted me in Stranger's, eh Bill? I can't get away with much these days, can I, not even expenses.

Telford. Could be worse. I am in St James's Palace all afternoon but I might be back in time, old boy.
