This will be good right?
Please say this will be good.
See what i did?
in the way that, for example, Galloway and Farage are always good value as long as you're not expecting any great insight.
he'll be rubbish and unfunny
How could it be anything other than awful?
"Given that Mensch is married to Metallica manager Peter Mensch and that Johnson played in various bands before entering politics, this could be the most rocking Question Time ever."
I'm hoping this will set some record for the most foul mouthed Question time ever. "Fucking Cunts".
offered literally nothing
It was them that finally got napster closed down wasnt it?
I remember the next day, loads of people were offering free downloads of every metallica track :) all over the net.
I wonder where Lydon stands on this now, perhaps he'd be in agreement so you'd have the unlikely spectacle of Lydon agreeing with a tory over how the great unwashed SHOULD have to pay all monies to big big music stars. Maybe he wont
I do do do DO hope that as a response to something she says, he responds with something like 'with all due respect you are talking boll***s Farmers Wife'
Oh BioDimbleby, with these lulz you are spoiling us.
It's usually the audience I have to mute, not the panellists.
I think you really need to get over yourself.
it just grates on me. Give up watching after a few minutes usually (as I have today).
Looks to audience for applause. Gets none.
I always assume he's going to follow it up with "Country Life butta"
But, at the end of the day, I'd rather trust him with absolutely anything of mine (children, money...) before I resorted to a truly awful human like Mensch.
I was confused by my conflicting thoughts, but I feel exactly the same as you on this.
"let's not forget the soldiers [something]"
But Alan Johnson was great, and props to him for slapping down the odious Mensch a couple of times.
Also, Ed Davey is a uniquely uninspiring man... and for a Lib Dem he seems very illiberal. Needs to go and read a bit of JS Mill I think.
Lydon was a complete car crash, I genuinely thought he'd be a bit sharper than that. Maybe he just couldn't cope with the format very well and had a couple of drinks beforehand to try and steady the ship.
Recess doesn't start for another fortnight, and even then, it's not time off, it's time in their constituencies.
Snap. I said exactly those words about him. :-)
As someone who's always happy to have a dig, I'll admit that AJ doesn't seem like a bad 'un at heart.
Always seems a good guy
I take it he's never heard of Frank. I think what he was trying to say but just couldn't get out, is that if you're buying drugs off the street, there's no way you can know where the money's going or what's even in it (not that it would be much of a turn-off for addicts either way), where a legalised system would be much more trustworthy. But then, if you believe in self-determination so much, how can you justify the NHS?
before I have time to think of a shitter one
but nothing's happening
I liked that most of the people who would probably have called for him to receive the death penalty back in the day were arguing for him to be kept alive.
