Modern Political Debate


In the times in which we now live, it seems that intelligent political debate is something from a bygone age. Perhaps it never really existed at all. However the politically correct modern media has create a debate so lacking in intelligent and informed analysis that it has become completely pointless. An excellent example of this in the United Kingdom is the BBC’s Question Time.

Anyway that’s the way it is I guess. Nevertheless it’s not a complete loss to us all because it does offer fertile ground for comedy and political satire. So if like me you think that the BBC’s Question Time has become a mess of evidence-free assertions, class warfare, soundbites and smugness then you might just enjoy this comedy sketch from Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse. It’s very funny and for me they have truly nailed the nature of what passes for modern political debate.

It made me laugh and I hope it makes you smile too.
