Bournemouth West MP Conor Burns to appear as panellist on BBC1’s Question Time

Bournemouth Echo: MP Conor Burns to appear as panellist on Question Time tonight MP Conor Burns to appear as panellist on Question Time tonight

BOURNEMOUTH West MP Conor Burns will be a panellist on BBC1’s Question Time tonight.

Mr Burns will be representing the Conservatives on the panel as the programme is broadcast from Leeds.

He will field questions from the audience and debate issues with Labour’s shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper, president of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron, UKIP’s communities spokesman Suzanne Evans and Simon Jenkins, columnist for the Guardian and Evening Standard.

The programme will be broadcast at 10.35pm.

He told the Echo: “It’s a big thing, I’ve never done it before but it was very flattering to be asked. You don’t know what the questions are going to be so you have to scour the news agenda and try and guess what might come up.

“I’m not your average party line MP – if I have a strong view on something and it deviates from the view of my party I’m not afraid to express it. But that said I’m with my party on most things.”

Connor Burns and the UKIP panellist will certainly have their work cut out if the audiences comprises the usual BBC lefty engineered Question Time crowd - including probably a few Labour Party activists, as has been established in the past.

oh dear you haven't a clue have you ? Why not switch off Fix news, get your head out of the Daily Mail and stop bleating their idiotic little slogans.

The Question Time audience is made up of a broad mix of members with very every view represented.

Curiously I know this as I manged to get in the audience by telling the 'researcher (non BBC in fact) some ridiculous old guff that would have you and your lot over exciting themselves. I was offered a place immediately, whereas a friend who answered with reasoned thought didn't get on.

Worse, they phoned me back a day or two later asking if i knew of anyone similarly minded who might wish to appear.,

As to Connor Burns then it is great to see him back in the country rather than sucking up to some dodgy foreign power, as usual - and as with UKIP that should be hilarious, given how their leader seems to be more interested in his expenses than any shyster of an MP from any party.

Yes, folk have genuine concerns about mass immigration but allowing the three main parties off the hook by setting up a flawed money grabber is ludicrous, because the focus will be on his hypocricy and the assorted loons and fruitcakes that are attracted to him rather than those concerns.

So let me get this right, UKIP are constantly accused of being a far right wing party and you believe they have copies of a socialists book, that doesn't actually make a lot of sense, does it? All UKIP are trying to do is keep Britain governed by the British and not dictated to by unelected bureaucrats and because of that people call us racists, fascists and xenophobes. Hopefully enough people will question why that is and then take a proper look at what UKIP really stand for instead of echoing the nonsense of those who do not want UKIP to succeed in changing British politics for the better.

Okay Marty, firstly thank you for replying without resorting to personal insults, a feature of this website which stops me posting often. Are you saying that UKIP is NOT a right wing party? Surely the reason you are painted with the racist/fascist tag is that you appear to have many members and candidates who have publicly supported this sort of ideology and generally in life I have found if it quacks like a duck and waddles like a duck...well you know the rest. It would appear to me that the UKIP party actually stands for very little apart from appealing to the Mail readership with the politics of fear. Now I understand that this is a large and largely dissatisfied portion of the electorate and they have the right to representation and a voice BUT this must not be achieved by demonising somebody because he has a different coloured skin or because he worships a different sky fairy (I believe in Eddie Howe as a sacred deity if you must know :-)) So, aside from "sending the buggers back" what will you do when your tanks are on the lawns of Downing Street ?

The biggest misconception of UKIP is that it is anti immigration and this has never been the case, what UKIP is really against is mass uncontrolled immigration and they happen to be totally separate things, MUI is simply unsustainable in any country not just Britain and anyone who doesn't see that is lying to themselves and others. Of course the political elite will happily promote the idea that UKIP is a racist, xenophobic party but they reasons for this as very little to race, it has far more to do with the fact that they watch UKIP in the EU parliament, find out the truth of what is going on and then tell the voting public about it all. That just happens to be the last thing they want to happen in the UK parliament for obvious reasons. UKIP policies ans what we stand for are on www.ukip.org but they won't attack them, simply because they happen to be sound policies that they may want to use themselves. UKIP are actually giving the people a voice and those that don't want that will do everything they can to ensure that voice is silenced, as we have seen from the numerous smear campaigns, I've even been a victim myself when a certain group decided I had made a point that they didn't want people hearing and they were certainly determined to get me kicked out of UKIP. People need to take a closer look at UKIP and then decide for themselves if they are really trying to do the wrong thing but judge the party on what it is trying to do, not what a few individuals may or may not have said after too many beers one night, because the one thing that Suzanne Evans was absolutely spot on with last night is UKIP certainly does not have the monopoly on stupidity of its membership.

I thought Suzanne Evans did quite well on Question time, it was very unfortunate that she become tongue tied at one crucial moment and of all the things to inject into a sentence completely out of context she stumbled upon the word 'racist'! Oops! Apart from that she did hold her position very well and it was also to the credit of the rival Party representatives on the panel that they all completely dismissed the notion that UKIP is a racist organisation, Ms Cooper distancing herself from people in her own Labour Party whilst doing so.

But I have to refer back to my earliest comment about the neutrality of the BBC Question Time studio selection process because with UKIP support in the forthcoming EU elections polled lately at 38% (more then 1 in 3 UK public voters) where the heck were they in last night's programme. Only one young lady was vaguely UKIP supportive all the other people offered the opportunity by the Chairman spoke in unwavering anti-UKIP terms. And of course we also had the selected notably articulate and confident lady with a carefully pre-prepared UKIP 'hit' openly quoting from notes in her hand - funny that.
