The National:

TOMORROW night, the BBC's Question Time is being hosted in Dewsbury, England.

It'll be the eighth episode since it was last hosted in Scotland (Perth on May 31) ... and, continuing its long-tradition, will not feature any Scottish politicians or public figures.

In fact, in all those episodes, SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford has been the only such panellist to appear.

The show will be returning to Scotland on October 11, hosted in Edinburgh – but for now, let's see who is on this panel.

We're sure it'll be a strong group, since they don't seem to feel the need to bother looking north of the Border.

We have:

  • Vince Cable, LibDem leader
  • Barry Gardiner, Labour MP MP and shadow international trade secretary
  • Camilla Tominey, Daily Telegraph associate editor and former Express reporters on the Royals
  • Nazir Afzal, senior lawyer and former chief prosecutor for North West England
  • Chris Skidmore, vice-chair of the Conservative Party

Still, when the topic of Brexit comes up, they'll mention the leaked report this week showing the Tories plotting to undermine Scottish interests in negotiations

Won't they?
