You should only be allowed to sit on the QT panel if:
a) you've had a job outside of either politics and the media
b) you've had some kind of responsibility in that post- i.e. a manager, union official etc
c) you are not currently employed for the sole purpose of having an opinion (e.g. Jones, Hopkins etc).

Everyone else should be told to f##k off.

My first reaction was that's so funny it's true. But actually - it's just true.

People have always agreed with rabble-rousers, because they know how to wind an audience up. But if you actually talk to some these people in a different manner, they will often disagree just as much with Littlejohns et al.

Sarcasm? Personal cant stand her.

That said, as a format, and as a viewer, people like Winterson are vital. If it was just five politicians it would be abysmal.

No sarcasm at all. She has some odd ideas sometimes, but her upbringing was pretty strange to say the least. I think her views are a breath of fresh air on QT, and the studio audience seemed to agree with much of what she said.

You are right about the politicians though... never have I felt more disconnected from mainstream politics than now, something I find rather depressing.

Last week's QT was a prime example of what you are saying IMHO.

Jeanette Winterson and Roger Scrutton seem to have some depth, some emotion. You don't hav to agree with them, or even like them, but they keep the programme feeling organic and alive.

Phillip Hammond and Liz Kendall are nothing but drones carved out by the parties they represent. No one would be surprised if they were robots underneath.

Charles Kennedy, interestingly, I actually found not too bad, as politicians go.

What a boring panel tonight.

Palestinian I know we disagreed about J Winterson but at least she inflamed something whether you liked her or not - this is so Dowie.

BBCQT, survives not because of political rhetoric, it actually thrives because non-politicians are on the panel. It's the philosophers, journalists, sociologists, biologists etc etc that keep the format organic.
