Here's a question. What were the Beeb thinking?

Last week’s Question Time ‒ the last in the current series before the summer recess ‒ had chosen Davina McCall as one of its panellists. She was seated next to Ed Miliband, younger brother of rising New Labour star, David.

Axegrinder is unsure a) why she was asked to be on the show, and b) why she accepted. She clearly felt out of her
depth as she twirled her hair round her fingers during some of the questions, tried to take over the questioning of the audience from the host, David Dimbleby, and was generally at sea.

As one viewer said afterwards: “She hosts a talentless show (Big Brother) for talentless people, so what on earth were those people at Question Time thinking?”
