Question Time To Come From Wormwood Scrubs

Recommended Posts

The BBC is to broadcast its political panel programme Question Time from inside a prison for the first time.

Ten Wormwood Scrubs inmates and 10 staff will join 100 members of the public in the audience next Thursday.

They can question Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke, ex-Home Secretary Jack Straw and other panellists...

BBC News

Ironically, rather than the usual coach load of socialist oiks, tonight's audience may be the broadest representation of society in the shows history!

There are only going to be a few crims in the audience though?

And none in the panel? (Although there's a few MPs who could probably give a few hints on how to make £££ from the taxpayer)

More human rights for prisoners, more benefits for our loved ones!

The proles vote for parties that have signed up to the human rights act, the govt. can be telling those incarcerated to abide by the law whilst breaking it themselves.

When youre banged up for 23 hours a day in a Victorian jail, in a cell made even the Victorians deemed suitable for 1 but having to share its hardly a case of excessive human rights. (despite this being illegal)

Blame the expenses scandal, if the politicians won't come to them, they have to go to the politicians. Desperate times call for desperate measures and all that.

Actually, I'll give a tenner to the first prisoner to knock off dimbletwat, we can live in hope!

Speaking of organisations demanding money with menaces, Dimblebot will pocket his £15k fee as usual. I'm sure some of the thieving scum will be aggrieved at being locked up for stealing less than that. :lol:

This programme tonight is a total disgrace. When the Tory got out the Labour would cut £7 to the coalitions £8 Dimbers shouted her down to huge audience applause.

You have basically have 4 against 2.

oh i despair

the best liberal was keynes, let's spend, spend, spend yay!

Keynesians give Keynes a bad name, these people forget he also proclaimed that spending "25% [of GDP] as the maximum tolerable proportion of taxation." Running government spending >50% of GDP would have genuinely shocked him, he'd consider it a permanent hyper-stimulus.

Not to mention :-

"Even the most practical man of affairs is usually in the thrall of the ideas of some long-dead economist"

:lol:

I think you are expecting too much for that level of debate on Question Time! :unsure:

One of the idiots on the panel gave a great speech defending Law's sexuality, only to be completely dumstruck when a member of the audience asked would the situation be the same if someone had hid their partner to claim say, housing benefit. Joke panel.

he was totally floored with that question

it is an incredibly weak panel. dumblebore is such a labour luvvie,.

there seems to be a re-occuring trend now of audience jeering whenever a coalition mp talks about the economic mess they've inherited - worrying

I prefer beer ;)

The Law's thing is nothing to do with sexuality, I think the £99k 'gift' and claims speaks for itself, it was a "misjudgement". That said, the MP's that sat in judgement of Law's, and the rest he will have to formally apologise to in the den of thieves are no stranger to various *cough* "consultancy jobs" and extracurricular activities, business or otherwise. The whips rely on a steady stream of dirt to keep the little piggies in line.

Do heterosexual MPs hide their sexuality ?

I don't see why a homosexual MP (at least in the 21st century) would hide the fact..it's almost like admitting it's something to be ashamed of.

I guess it's a relic from a different era, his private life would have remained just that if he never claimed public money. Maybe that strange hypocrite Simon Hughes would have bashed him for it. :lol:

Renting from partners or family members has been banned since 2006, many of them legally got away with some really egregious shit in the years before that, but of course they remained "shocked, shocked" about Laws.

A 'friend' said to me the other day "when the tories have finished f***ing up the economy"

How quickly history has been re-written

Pin a red rosette on a donkey and people will vote for it

I give up - thinking about this stuff is so incredibly depressing - i need to find another forum maybe I'll try www.xfactorwatchingairheads.com

I expected a Sheffield audience to have strong Northern accents.

Funny, I always expect the Queen to talk broad cockney.

Well, she was born and raised in London.....

The audiences appear to be largely self-selecting, hence the regular assortment of students, public sector workers, small businessmen not to mention requisite village idiots from the local labour / liberal / conservative clubs. It all seems to have a strange artifice, right down to the pre-edited questions that "random members of the public" have to read out in precise order, it does have that Soviet town hall meeting feel to it. I wonder if the audience or panel ever goes rogue and all samizdat on their a$$es, I guess that's why it's all recorded and edited.

Mind you, the only alternative would probably look like something out of Jeremy Kyle, like monkeys throwing their shit at each other <_<
