Fiona Bruce’s took over the chair of Question Time for the first time last night, Thursday, 10 January, 2019. Don’t ask me why, because the BBC bias is nowhere as predictable, but I do try to watch it every week, either live or recorded. Last night, I watched it broadcast right after the news, and I found it very frustrating viewing, indeed.
There were only two topics: Brexit and knife crime in London.
Only Melanie Phillips’ contributions on both topics were meaningful, in my view. Yet, Fiona Bruce allowed her to speak only once on Brexit – notice she is not called on to join in the toing and froing between the other members of the panel when controversy arose – while the Labour politician, Emily Thornberry is given free rein to say what she wanted, as often as she wanted, more or less unchecked.
I’m also puzzled as to why the Tory politician, James Cleverly MP, appears so frequently on Question Time and other programmes where Brexit is the hot topic. He is a weak “LEAVER”… oops!” Just answered my own question. There’s the reason he’s invited onto these shows and not Jacob Rees-Mogg or Owen Paterson.
In any event, this thread comes in the wake of the call from the Bishop of Galloway (south of Scotland) to Catholics to become more involved in politics.
Watching the media bias in matters political, the prevailing (and worsening) political correctness, is there really any point in Catholics becoming more involved in politics – and what, precisely does that mean? Joining Parties which promote the evils of homosexuality and abortion?
Finally, IS it fair to describe last night’s Question Time as the Fiona Bruce & Emily Thornberry Show? Your verdict, please!
