In the left corner, Russell Brand and in the right corner, Nigel Farage. What was to be expected from the BBC’s popular political discussion show Question Time, hosted by David Dimbleby, broadcast from Canterbury in Kent, this past Thursday night? The usual flimsy debates, with no dissection or clarity, the opposite which was the hope of the viewing public, did not surface, leaving nothing properly addressed regarding current issues nor did it offer any real ideas for solutions, and it’s those that need promoting.
We witnessed hypercritical stand points, and that’s no point at all, and we were left wincing at the ugly air of xenophobic and racist ideology. Tedious and a poor academia style of speech was endured, because mass communication was as usual obsolete. Well at least the media are enjoying the pantomime. If you’ve lived elsewhere, or integrated with elsewhere for a life time relevant to your years, it’s possible that you’ll think that this country can just go fuck itself, then you realize that you don’t really mean that.
These two are surely not the only political alternative; a true rebirth at the essence involves creativity, not reactionary nonsense, and a tired constant reiteration of the status quo. Oh did you notice the hype was based around two men, how very unusual, the so-called revolution will continue to be healthily scrutinized. Question Time aired on BBC 1 on December 11, and you can watch the program now via BBC iPlayer subject to availability.
