I was a regular viewer of QT. No longer, it has been plumbing the depths for a few years now, if Andrew Neil, Paxman or similar hosted it, it would attract me back. As it is, it's heavily politically loaded dice.

Totally agree. I do not watch it anymore. It is now a “set piece” of BBC bias and as such would be perfectly acceptable for a news/current affairs outlet you paid for on a voluntary basis. But to be “told” they are balanced and unbiased when they clearly are not - and you have to pay for this bloated woke idiocy by law! - is getting well beyond a joke.

I think that it has not been the same since it was last presented by the late Sir Robin Day. His incisive and non-deferential manner combined well with his extensive experience as a journalist and as an interviewer of some of the top politicians of his time. It would be nice if a female replacement of his calibre could be found for the show but for me it would maybe take someone like Betty Boothroyd who was a former Speaker of the House of Commons.

Why not, just think of all the boxes she ticks for the BBC, including that she’d be N B G at the job.....

No chance. They might ask her to count the audience. She'd be lost at the first gangway.

Abbott.... The cost would only be 6 million to implement this policy..
Interviewer...I think you meant 6 billion.
Abbott....Well we have the money. We can't afford to not do it.

Totally agree. Some good books on the BBC by David Sedgwick. Apparently George Orwell based his famous book on his time at the BBC. I lost interest in QT when a young Saudi Arabian woman made a highly relevant and stunning counter point to the promoted narrative on the evening about mosques in the UK. She was politely thanked and then 'next question please' and the juggernaut rolled on in the direction they wanted. No discussion allowed running counter to the narrative. Too embarrassing. Ignored completely what they didn't want to hear.
