There have been many questions since David Dimbleby announced he’s leaving Question Time. These questions include:
- Could his replacement be any worse?
- Does the Question Time format need a shakeup?
- Will the changes be paid for by the Brexit Dividend?
All of which have now been answered:
- It doesn’t exist, so no.
The proposed shake-up isn’t that big a change, however. Nigel Farage was on Question Time all the time anyway.
Nigel on Nigel
The new show will be called The Nigel Farage Hour with Nigel Farage. It will feature Nigel Farage taking questions from Nigel Farage, and will cover topics like Nigel Farage and former leaders of UKIP.
Other points of conversation will include:
- Exactly how glorious is Brexit?
- How much Russian collusion wasn’t there by Leave.EU?
- Why is the NHS so terrible and can we sell it off fast enough?
- Why do these leftists embarrass themselves by saying I look like a cross between a lizard and a walnut?
- Who should independent England declare war on first – Scotland or Gary Lineker?
Rather than having new audiences every week, the show will be watched by the famous ‘wall of gammon’:

Of course, it’s important the BBC remains balanced. That’s why Nigel Farage will also be taking over The Andrew Marr Show. That way you can see ol’ Lizard-nut first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
