The National:

THIS week Question Time is heading to Frome, an English town in Somerset.

Voters have been casting their ballots since this morning*, and by the time Question Time hits your screens, polls will have closed.

(*those who have been allowed to vote, of course… READ MORE: UK citizens from EU told to ‘vote in your own member state’)

Discussing the big issues of the day, which is likely to include a healthy dose dedicated to Brexit and the European Parliament election, will be a businessman, a think tank CEO, an author and two representatives from the parties that have got us into this mess.

Representing the crumbling Tory party is Damian Green, last seen being sacked from Theresa May’s government as work and pensions secretary after allegations he accessed porn on his work computer. Allegations he denies.

In the opposite corner, representing the ineffective opposition which has sleepwalked through this Brexit omnishambles, is Labour’s shadow education minister and MP for Batley and Spen, Tracy Brabin.

Rounding out the panel is author and columnist Camilla Cavendish, Miatta Fahnbulleh from left-of-centre think tank the New Economic Foundation, and former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan.
