It's a good point Max, but there is an army of them in the  civil servants. Spin doctors and press agents and all manner of fancy titles. Then there is the 24 elected. Howard,by simple definition is the best we have.

All these meetings and photographs. From HQ's form so far (Panorama, State of the Nation address, pre-emp press conference (*snigger*) I do wonder what sort of impression is being given. You can't just go round meeting people and winging it. Or can you?

I wonder who, exactly, is his target audience?

You mean the handpicked socialists they usually populate the audience of QT with. It's a staged propaganda show, not a political question and answer session.

Really?? that's stretching BBC bias a bit far, unless you've something substantive to back it up with?!

Ahhhh, so they all looked like socialists!

Fair enough.....

Every time appalling tory legislation like the reviled "Universal Credit" or whatever nonsense means the tory sacrificial lamb on Question Time gets completely shredded the UK right-wing press, which is to say pretty much all of it, start screaming "BBC bias" and use the unassailable facts that as legislation goes it's a complete and utter horlicks as "proof" that the BBC is biased.

This crops up time after boring time and the last time it happened I checked and IIRC to appear on QT you have to answer a questionnaire. Fair enough. Because the BBC, unlike ALL the other broadcasters, have to provide "balance" in political programs like QT. So you have to state how you voted last time, how you will vote next time and did you vote Brexit or not - just to keep it topical. They then try and balance out the numbers plus minorities (like the LibDems FFS!) and uncommitted.

Now tory Central Office used to instruct their activists to write in and complain about BBC "bias" on a general basis just to keep the pot bubbling. I can't see the Labour lot ever telling their activists to apply for QT and state they are true blue in an attempt to slant the audience.

Interesting concept though....

But they just aren't of the calibre that's needed, someone we could call on to stand up an knock down the rabble rousers, a professional paid on what he says and when.

Gettafa - I think Big H is doing OK with it.

Let's be honest - there isn't anything he can do or could have done which you would be able to find decent. 

 

This is not having a go at you "Notwell", but it would be nice if we all stopped using the term "Big H" as a derogatory term for Howard Quayle.

There is only one "Big H" and that is "Hunter", Paul Hunt.

Big H is a term of endearment to Hunter, who was dealt a shit blow with his "off" while a Travelling Marshal, and out of respect for him we should call HQ something more fitting.

I'm sure Max will agree.

There are times when only the head of the Govt will suffice for delivery of a response. The problem is he is a bit of a scruffy bugger with a strange accent! Hard to take him seriously?

The other problem is his preparedness or his honing by the CS advisors who do not seem to have done him any favours? Deny, deny deny, a typical response from our Govt on any subject

Wooley, '' BBC further to the left than Lands End when looking at a map of Britain. ''

That drum must be pretty battered by now?
