The BBC has announced that it is to axe the current affairs program Question Time.
Director General Mark Tom Thumb said that the decision had been a difficult one. "The show has run for thirty years but I think that there is not much left for it to achieve. After Nick Griffin's appearance I don't think there is anyone left to offend."
Question Time has always been controversial. Figures such as Margaret Beckett, John Prescott, Michael Heseltine, Kenneth Clarke and Charles Kennedy have all been invited on to the show despite public outcry.
Many were appalled when Beckett appeared on the show.
"She is hideous, why did they do it?" asked viewer Kevin Nipple of Wellingborough. When Charles Kennedy appeared on the show he famously informed everyone else on the panel that they were his "best mate" and that he "really really loved" them. He then offered a member of the audience out to the car park for a fight before vomiting all over Glenys Kinnock, which got a round of applause.
Question Time is therefore a victim of its own success. It will be replaced by a new reality show, Get Me Out Of Here, I'm A Celebrity Dancer On Ice.
