Fiona Bruce says she is surprised by Question Time 'toxicity'

Thanks for the links Ann. I see that goody two shoes Fiona Bruce is having difficulty differentiating between the impact of Antique Roadshow and QT, lol. She should have stuck to the former as the latter has now damaged her credibility as an impartial BBC news presenter, imo. Greed got the better of her.

Thanks Ann, I particularly enjoyed the link to the review of the John Lloyd book "The perils of Scottish independence" It was a hilariously bad article in it's praise and the actual book sounds even worse. Project Fear on stilts 🙂
