# 227 - WAR - Question Time.

The fact that I'm commenting on this just shows how unusual this occurrence is.

On Question Time last night the  panelists were Michael Gove MP, Education Secretary; Emily Thornberry MP, Shadow Attorney General for Labour; Natalie Bennett, Leader of the Green Party; Mark Littlewood, Director General of the Institute of Economic Affairs; and bestselling author Anthony Horowitz. 

Having heard their points of view on the topics raised it was pretty clear from the off that we had 3 on the Right of centre and 2 on the Left.

Clearly the Nu Liebour and the Tree Hugger were on the Left with the Conservative, Economist and Author on the Right.

What is SO unusual is for the balance to be in the Right's favour and I can not remember the last time the Question Time panel had a Right of centre bias.

For some time now the 5th panelist has been an author,comedian or celebrity (typical BBC dumbing down) who is usually a rabid Left Winger!

Just considering the make up of the panel since the Coalition formed the line up has normally been the token Tory on the Right(not that they are very Right these days!!) with the Left represented by a Nu Liebour MP, a Lib Dim MP and finally a Left Wing celebrity.

I think what happened last night was a one off and normal left of centre bias will be restored next week!

I'll monitor and let you know.

  1. Can I suggest listening to the Now Show on Radio 4 on the same night? They responded to complaints of bias... by having a sketch that suggested everyone right of centre are racists. Ignoring the fact that 90% of the sketches were about the conservatives, they actually decided to just write off some 40%+ of the population to the baying pleasure of the metropolitan audience.
