The National:

SCOTS will enjoy the privilege of being represented by politicians from Scotland on this week’s Question Time as the show heads north.

The BBC’s flagship political programme will be held in Elgin and aired on Thursday at 10.35pm.

After a whitewash last week, viewers will be treated to the sight of four Scots on the panel.

Fiona Bruce will host the show, which will play on BBC One Scotland.

Appearing on the panel will be:

  • Deputy first minister and Education Secretary, John Swinney
  • Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard
  • Christine Jardine, LibDem MP for Edinburgh West and former BBC journalist
  • Tory MP Hitchen and Harpenden, Bim Afolami
  • Scottish lawyer Eilidh Douglas, a Tory Brexiteer and Amnesty International UK vice-chair ​

Nicola Sturgeon’s ambitions for indyref2 and Theresa May’s latest efforts to force through her Brexit deal are bound to be hot topics of discussion.

Scotland has been consistently ignored throughout the Brexit process. But let's hope the majority-Scots panel is a sign of better things to come.
