Who do you think are the best panellists on BBC question Time? These may not be people you agree with, but people that you think make good arguments or are generally likeable, for instance whilst I strongly disagree with most of what they say I do usually enjoy watching Nigel Farage and George Gallloway on there.

For me its:

Tory: Gove, David Davis, Ken Clarke, Lord Helsetine and Esther Mcvey.

Labour: The only good panellist ive seen for Labour personally was David Miliband! Chuckaa Umunna and Chris Bryant tends to be least bad for me now.

Lib Dems: Paddy Ashdown and Ed Davey...Lib dem panellists unfortunatley tend to be quite boring.

Ukip: Farage only. The rest are sub par BNP types IMO.

Greens: ...

Other: Satirists are generally good (Ian hislop and Armando Ianucci)

Musicians not so much.

david Starkey.
Ah! Forgot about him, I disagree with him but I do like him very much. Actaully saw him on QT in Gillingham (With Galloway too) where he spent about ten minutes talking about how stupid an audience member was (It got edited out but it was hilarious!)

He's normally spot on.

His attacks on audience members tend to be targeted at the highly opinionated idiots that sometimes get into the audience who normally come across as trade unionists activists.

All awesome speakers and though I disagree with a lot of their views; they are able to passionately and defiantly stand their ground without looking like tits.

I really want Anjem Choudhury to appear on QT one day; would make for good entertainment.

Owen has a lot of arguments and he backs up everything he says with evidence.

Caroline Lucas is pretty good, I think Natalie Bennett is a much weaker debater; Ian Hislop is also very competent. I would like to see Chomsky on Question Time though.

I'd like to see Chomsky on QT versus somebody like Gove or Hammond just for the hilarity.


I'd like to see:

Doug Stanhope
Frankie Boyle
Jeremy Clarkson
Richard Dawkins
Stewart Lee

All on too just for the rage storm they will cause and because I agree to greater and lesser extents with all of them!

I agree with the last two, but I don't recall Kennedy being that great even before his most recent appearance. I say that as a Lib Dem voter!
