The National:

AFTER last week's shambles in Motherwell, the bar for this next Question Time really is remarkably low.

It's back to England for presenter Fiona Bruce and co, as they broadcast live from Aylesbury.

We now know who the panellists will be. Appearing on Question Time tomorrow are:

  • Jacob Rees-Mogg, Tory MP and arch-Brexiteer
  • Lisa Nandy, Labour MP
  • Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia
  • Grace Blakeley, New Statesman economics commentator
  • Geoff Norcott, "right leaning but well meaning" comedian

We have no confirmation on members of the audience, though. We can only wait with eager anticipation to find out if the angry Unionist who ranted at Fiona Hyslop last week will rack up a fifth audience appearance.

It kicks off quite the tour of England for the show, with all the confirmed locations up to April 11 – as far as their calendar goes – in the country.

Once again, our sympathies to our friends in Wales, who last hosted the show on November 15.

Maybe that should be our congratulations, actually?

So, let's finish off with a quote from the SNP MP for Motherwell, Marion Fellows.

After last week's disgrace, she said: “I was disappointed with the Question Time programme from Motherwell. The point of moving the programme across the UK is to give it a local flavour.

“That has to come through, which most definitely did not happen. Motherwell and Wishaw voted for independence in 2014 and has twice returned an SNP MP.

“My constituents voted to remain in 2016 – the audience used in the Motherwell programme did not reflect how the majority of people are in the area."

Will the show offer up be just as unrepresentative an audience in Aylesbury?
