Excellent Presenter, occasional blips in subject choice

Caroline Quinn is excellent and, surprisingly for the BBC, impartial. More please!

Not really the vehicle for a complimentary chat with the cleaners, though! Not sure who felt that this was valid prime time coverage!

Clare Eliza, Leeds ,

Informative and enjoyable but with a little bias perhaps

Excellent debate and discussion, representatives from all main parties although I do find the language is often quite patronising with deep breaths and impatience when it comes to discussing the opposition parties, particularly Corbyn - with no admission of a growing left of centre ‘younger’ socialist electorate. I also wonder if they forget that half of the voting public didn't want Brexit and millions strong have been fighting the destructive referendum vote ever since.
