Question Time: serious political debate or a popularity contest for needy egos?

Jewell, John 2015. Question Time: serious political debate or a popularity contest for needy egos? The Conversation 2015 (30 Jan)

Full text not available from this repository.

Abstract

The BBC’s long-running political panel show, Question Time sets out to be topical, relevant to its audience and spiced with a dash of controversy. So, as you’d expect, when it was broadcast from Wrexham, producers brought in Peter Hain and Plaid Cymru MP, Rhun ap Iorwerth, to provide the Welsh flavour with arts and culture minister Sajid Javid added to give us the government’s point-of-view. And – always a good bet for a dash of controversy – we had Germaine Greer celebrating her 76th birthday. Making up the numbers was Telegraph blogger Kate Maltby – although what she was drafted in to provide was not clear.
