Question Time Gordon Brown’s Chilcot Mistake Has Done Damage With Voters

The infallible one’s calculated lie mistake at the Iraqi inquiry has done serious damage to Gordon Brown with voters if tonight’s BBC 1 Question Time is anything to go by.

The second audience question was about the infamous “defence spending rose in real terms every year” mantra.

Labour sent Margaret Beckett out as the sacrificial lamb, and Beckett must have guessed that she was in for a rough ride. The real stars of this part of Question Time were the audience and David Starkey, with Margaret Beckett playing the fall guy.

Beckett’s responses to the question about the “mistake” were greeted with heckling and jeers, when she said “Do you think that Gordon Brown would be so stupid as to lie?”

David Starkey replied “Yes, because he thought no one would notice

The majority of the audience applauded, a member of the audience said “Brown thinks that the public are stupid” More audience applause.

At this point Aardvark began to wonder if the BBC were televising a right wing bloggers get together, not a political discussion program.

Then that nemesis of the Labour politician on defence matters, a serving soldiers parent asked a question about the equipment shortages, the lies and smears, how Brown’s appearance at Chilcot was unbelievable. Before going further Aardvark would like to express his respect and thanks to this man (you know who you are) and his son for the tremendous and brave job our forces do and for the father who has to go through the worry of his son being in danger for long periods.

Beckett was then subjected to further heckling and jeering from the audience as she tried to bluster out a reply.

The audience then raised the question from the previous week’s QT where the mother of a soldier about to go to Afghanistan had to go out and buy her son webbing as the MOD supplied kit was rubbish.

Before Beckett could reply, David Starkey jumped in with his disgust at Brown rushing out to Afghanistan and using the troops as a backdrop after his lies to Chilcot.

More audience applause for that one, Beckett’s face by now is doing a passable impression of a recently boiled lobster.

The final say on the question went to a member of the audience who had this to say “The Electorate will decide if Brown’s conduct at Chilcot was acceptable, not Parliament, not Chilcot

More audience applause

QT is repeated a couple of times before it goes on to BBC iPlayer, if you watch it on iPlayer it starts about 20 minutes into the program.

  1. Thought both Starkey and Beckett were complete @rse. Beckett comes across as a brit version of the toady Tariq Aziz whereas Starkey looks and sounded like he’d escaped from some sort of asylum in a Harry Potter book, 25% of kids are feral animals? Unlikely. 100% of Royal obsessed ‘Historian’ nutcases on QT talking mainly kack? Undoubtedly.

    Question Time is going down the pan. Even Dimbleby sounds like he’s just going through the motions now…
