It’s sad to see at Questions and Answers finished on RTÉ on Monday, 29th June, 2009. Whilst I’m disappointed to see it go, it was also one of these shows that drove me absolutely mad as it was essentially a Fianna Fáil centric show.
The audience was mostly pro-Fianna Fáil, as was its host, John Bowman. I recall him interrupting several valid arguments. Monday night’s show was a bit disappointing as a debate show doesn’t really lend itself to a ‘Best of’ and also forgot it’s ‘debate’ remit and settled for a love in.
Despite my protestations, thankfully, RTÉ will be commissioning another political debate show which I will be looking forward to.
