Watching a recent Question Time with Mark Steel. Some observations:
- Mark Steel is still one of my favourite people on this planet.
- Party politics is a pathetic sideshow for the real politics that are going on behind the scenes and have been since the beginning – Question Time is full of the same arguments today as it was in 1979.
- The panelists have started looking way too young to me.
- The saliva all over the TV screen and the soreness of my throat have reminded me of why I stopped watching Question Time. The neighbours must think I really hate my wife.
