Can't open your links in work here but I'm guessing Question Time and the selected panel? Did you see the show? Or should I call it the Alastair Campbell show? I personally can't abide the man and he tried to railroad the whole production. Yes, there should have been a member of the new government available, but Alastair Campbell sure played on that one! I don't profess to lie on one side or the other of the UK parties but I would never trust a word that megalomaniac Campbell uttered, he's certainly one to watch and, in Dad's Army parlance "He doesn't like it up 'im".

And he's a Burnley 'fan'.

Still they should be able to put forward anyone they choose from their party. Doesn't exactly show self confidence from the Tories.

What anyone thinks of Campbell in this context is irrelevant, the BBC asked him on the panel & the Government responded by saying they would only send a representative if Campbell was removed and the BBC quite rightly told them to fuck off.

It's this kind of stuff that goes right to the heart of freedom of the press issues.

But who was on the panel representing the Shadow government?
Campbell is no longer in that position, I think that was the Government's stance?

This made the, normally balanced, panel somewhat imbalanced - or would have.
Surely someone from the Labour front benches should have been invited along with someone from the existing government/cabinet.
Not sure what the existing government should be called?

Maybe but that's not for the Government to decide, if the Opposition wish to put forward a battle scarred spin doctor that's up to them and the BBC to either accept or decline.

Once you start going down the road of "We'll only send someone if you get rid of him" it's a very rocky track indeed.

I'll only contribute to this thread if Vinjay is not allowed to represent the lunatic fringe.
