    Really! I was one of the student producers who won the competition to go and produce the show. Boris was very amusing although as usual it was mostly unintentional. His first answer was silence! What question did you speak on?
    I said how smacking children is different from assaulting adults because you can't reason with children. They sometimes only respond to physical stimuli

    Interesting. I have a video of the show, so I will watch it and see if I can spot you and agree with what you said. Did you think it was a good show, what with it being a special 'youth' edition? The general consensus was that the audience were actually better than the usually rabble. :rolleyes:

    Anyone who gets the oportunity to go to a 'question time' programme should take it. It is one of the few programs which rely so heavily on the audience. And most people who post here would be more than welcomed because they are quite desperate to have young faces in the audience, asking questions in all of the shows not just one-offs. You do have to be pretty clear about what you think on topics as all audience members are screened beforehand. Tip: say that you will speak. They are not interested in people who want to come and watch- they want people who will debate.

    Same here, I was on the final edition of the last series, the special youth edition with Boris "the legend" Johnson and Jimmy Carr, I got to speak and it was really enjoyable. I've also been on Jonathan Dimbleby which was cool because the audience was far smaller and it was live. I get e-mails from them every week asking me to go on via my university e-mail address. I thoroughly recommend it if you get the chance.
    I was on the one before that in Inverness (was Culloden actually but hardly anyone knows where that is)

    best of luck with that, what's you insurance otherwise? I think they are quite lenient on grades but everyone i've met has more than ABB

    book is 'Worlds in Collision - Terror and the future of global order', utterly fascinating and on the reading list for some of the spring modules

    Insurance is Sheffield (BBB), so great politics department, but I prefer Notts overall.

    Knowing my luck, I'll get AAC and be rejected by both. :rolleyes:

    BTW Rah, did you recieve any kind of accomadation information before results days? Cause somebody got a letter offering them halls today, and it got me slightly worried.

    Suposed to be a great department though. I was talking to a former ungrad there just the other day, and he seemed very impressed. Made me think it might not be so bad to end up there. But I really want Notts.
