The main guests throughout today's The Daily Politics - the big Prime Minister's Questions edition - were Ben Bradshaw and Shirley Williams. The closeness of their views on most matters, with Shirl the Girl (as Andrew likes to call her) saying how right she thinks the Labour Government is on issue after issue, offered the viewers a very restricted range of opinion. Both lost no opportunity to bash the Tories either. David Willetts appeared briefly for the Conservatives (getting just under 3 minutes to speak). Still, I'm sure this imbalance will be redressed next Wednesday when, say, Eric Pickles and Nigel Farage share the limelight on the programme, with Labour's Ed Balls appearing briefly for Labour (and getting just under 3 minutes to speak). Somehow though I doubt that's going to happen. No BBC programme would allow that, not even The Daily Politics.
