BBC hustings – too much, too late

September 17th, 2010 · Posted by Skuds in Politics · No Comments · Politics

I watched the Labour leadership hustings on BBC’s Question Time tonight.  It was the most I have enjoyed QT for a long time, but then it would have to be as I hardly ever watch it.   I think it would have been a lot more useful if it had been scheduled before a lot of members had already voted though.

I don’t think it would have changed my mind, I was very relieved to find that Balls justified my decision to give him my first preference, but I would have welcomed the chance to see this beforehand.  The local hustings in Crawley had proxies for four of the candidates, which isn’t the same really.  OK, so I could have travelled to one of the events in London or elsewhere in the South but I didn’t.

One thing did occur to me during the show: when the time comes to make a movie of this competition, as it surely will, I think David M should be played by Rowan Atkinson and Ed M by David Baddiel.  Not sure about the rest of the casting yet. Nothing sprang to mind immediately.
