From Hampstead to Hereford: Labour council candidate vs Margot James on Question Time

QUESTION Time may seem like we are watching members of the general public each week getting the chance to quiz senior politicians about issues of the day on national TV, but is it all quite as it seems? Last night, 160 miles from Hampstead we saw Labour’s election council election candidate in the Frognal and Fitzjohns ward, Rebecca Shirazi, pop up in the front row in Hereford. She took on Conservative culture minister Margot James with the accusation that the Conservatives could be running down the NHS to help make the case for privatisation.

In a rousing end to the programme, Ms James, who everybody in Camden will remember once stood against Frank Dobson in Holborn and St Pancras, was clearly angered by the suggestion and then further furious when more members of the audience heckled her with chants of ‘liar’. Job done, Ms Shirazi was this morning being celebrated for her direct approach among Labour colleagues in Hampstead (maybe even the ones who didn’t support her when she put herself up to be a candidate) and on Skwawkbox, the left-wing media site, although there she was only billed as ‘one woman’.
