The Prat On 'Question Time'.

I often wonder why BBC's 'Question Time' has to have an utter prat on every week. It is, after all, supposed to be a serious political debating show. I suppose the word 'show' says it all really, and the prat might just make some of the politicians appear bright by contrast.

But last night, and I could only manage to watch half an hour, Will Young was on. Yes, that Will Young, the one who won a karaoke competition on telly a coule of years ago. He was shallow, as expected, and not the most articulate young chap I've ever come across. He must be the biggest prat yet to appear on that fast fading 'show', unless the Aristotle in him came to the fore in the second half and I missed it.

I say get rid of Dimbleby, he's the one constant prat on the show, and a bloody annoying one at that.

I like Will Young*, and I thought he was quite good, actually.

* Check out the gear change half way through "Switch it on".

Perhaps he perked up a bit after I'd gone to bed. He was obviously nervous, which he said in his Telegraph piece on Saturday. May be I did him a disservice.
