watching Question Time, feeling pissed off and depressed. Finding Baroness Chakrabarti utterly awful, and Oakshott, who I know I SHOULD dislike, great.

I thought Isabel Oakeshott was quite childish actually


LaurieFairyCake · 09/06/2017 21:32

God that Oakshott woman was LOATHSOME

I literally couldn't disagree more. She was so horrible.

Nomorechickens · 09/06/2017 21:32

I was thinking the opposite


annielouise · 09/06/2017 21:33

Completely disagree too. Oakeshott was coming over as childish and obnoxious. I've switched over now though.


Saucery · 09/06/2017 21:34

I don't dislike either of them, but Oakeshott isn't buying into the Labour crap this evening, for sure.


AlternativeTentacle · 09/06/2017 21:34

Oakshott...never heard of her til I turned the TV on 20 mins ago. Loathsome woman.


lucydogz · 09/06/2017 21:34

just me then (I'll get my coat)

No! Have I Got News for You has just started ANNIE Grin

Not watching but absolutely with you on Chakrabarti!


LittleWitch · 09/06/2017 21:35

I would describe IO as petulant and SC as terrifyingly cold. Thought Chris Grayling did quite well all things considered and Campbell was his usual self, head and shoulders above the rest. Can't stand Dimbers and think it's way past time he was put out to grass.


annielouise · 09/06/2017 21:35

but Richard Osman is on Channel 4 and I like him


PhoenixJasmine · 09/06/2017 21:38

I found Oakshott condescending, disingenuous, ignorant and quite frankly bloody rude.


Ankleswingers · 09/06/2017 21:38

Agreed op.

Although she was slightly petulant at times.

Incidentally, that was, for once, an impartial audience on Question Time.


IfYouGoDownToTheWoodsToday · 09/06/2017 21:40

Really?? She's reminded me of a ruder Katie Hopkins.

She was intensely dislikable.


LouiseBrooks · 09/06/2017 21:43

God Oakeshott is vile. Instead of making her points properly she was just rude, childish and behaved like a bully.

I'd never heard of her but found this on wiki

"while at The Sunday Times, she infamously persuaded Vicky Pryce to implicate her estranged husband, former Liberal Democrat MP and Cabinet minister Chris Huhne, in perverting the course of justice, leading to the case R v Huhne, and to both Pryce and Huhne being convicted and jailed."

She also wrote for the Daily Mail (cut price Hopkins?). I suspect she'll love the publicity. Spoilt brat.

Alistair Campbell, who I used to loathe, was bloody right when he said people should stop buying that rag.


ginghambox · 09/06/2017 21:43

Isabel Oakeshot is usually a lot calmer then tonight, but I suppose being on a panel with Chakrabarti and bloody Campbell would piss anyone off.


StatisticallyChallenged · 09/06/2017 21:43

Completely disagree, Oakshott was utterly awful. Rude, condescending, endlessly sarcastic. I thought her behaviour was quite inappropriate at times actually


Fidoandacupoftea · 09/06/2017 21:47

IO sounded childish and obnoxious, SC was defensive and stubborn. Both came across as unprofessional


DidgeDoolittle · 09/06/2017 21:48

Oakshott was bloody vile. She was like a cut price Katie Hopkins.
I feel I should like Chackrabati, but she's just odd.
Alistair Campbell came across well though.


Orlantina · 09/06/2017 21:49

Stop buying the Daily Mail Grin


nina2b · 09/06/2017 21:50

Absolutely the other way round. Jeez


LouiseBrooks · 09/06/2017 21:52

I've never liked Chakrabati much but I don't think she was cold. Maybe she was trying to keep her temper ? I wanted to slap Oakeshott.
