Question Time, live from Swindon - 28/11/2019
Added: 7 months ago
Brandon Lewis - Conservatives
The former Party Chairman for Theresa May is a regular face to many who follow 24-hour newscasts and political shows. The minister of state for security famously campaigned for Remain but has since said he wouldÂ vote Leave as he is "first and foremost a democrat" While he is a safe pair of hands for the Conservatives, you can expect much more party rhetoric and "getÂ BrexitÂ done" statements from him on the panel tonight.Â
Andy McDonald - Labour
The shadow transport secretary will appear on the panel for Labour with the Remainer representing his Middlesborough constituency who voted to leave by over 65%. The shadow cabinet minister, who joined Corbyn's top team in 2016 rarely speaks on Brexit but may get more drawn into the topic tonight.
Caroline Lucas - Greens
The former Greens leader was the only Green MP in the last Parliament. The pro-Remainer and former MEP voted against the triggering of Article 50 and will no doubt be a strong voice for the pro-Remain side tonight. The candidate for Brighton Pavillion is a member of the Unite to Remain alliance and a backer of a second referendum.
Zanny Minton Beddoes
The first female editor in chief of The Economist will be on the panel tonight for Question Time as a political commentator. The pro-Remainer is a former advisor for the Polish Government and has previously written on the subject of Brexit. She also worked at the International Monetary Fund. Expect highly-charged debates with pro-Brexit panellists.
The American author is best known for her novel 'We Need to Talk about Kevin' but tonight she will be saying that we need to talk about Brexit. The leave campaigner who writes for The Spectator has long courted controversy over comments on the #MeToo movement and inclusion policies.
