Nervous jitters!
Posted Thursday, 7 May 2009 at 14:00

On the train to Edinburgh for Question Time. Apparently, the Scottish audience are really tough. No one can remember the last time a Conservative got so much as a ripple from the audience. Great - Really looking forward to this!

Good luck. At least its Edinburgh rather than Glasgow!

Just remembered its Dunfermline not Edinburgh. East coast is slightly more civilised than West in - additional good luck!

Forgot - It's actually Dunfermline - still East coast is slightly more civilised than the West one! Additional good luck

That's what I admire about you- always willing to face a challenge even though the odds are stacked against you. Good luck!

I'll be cheering for you from my sofa in Stirling, just up the road. You seem to be cut from the same straight talking cloth as our very own "Annie" Goldie.

They used to say that if a Scottish audience liked you they wouldn't applaud... they let you live! Good luck, you'll be fine.

You will be made most welcome and I would imagine that one of the questions will be about the Gurkhas. I am sure that Lord Steele will treat you with respect.

No idea why you had nervous jitters, I am watching the programme and you are like a shinning light on an otherwise dull panel!

Well done, Nadine, great show ! Great to hear you getting the voice of reason over. Lets hope they aren't too bigoted and chippy to wake up and smell the coffee.

I can't stand watching Question Time! There is always a large amount of ill-informed partisan questions from the audience, which make you wonder whether the questions the BBC make you answer on your application to join the audience are to ensure they get the 'right' sort of people. If the BBC are not vetting the audience what possible reason can they have of asking your 'views on the situation in Iraq' on the application form! The audience would sure be a fairer representation of voters (and society) if it was sel ected randomly by name rather than views. Which BBC staff member sel ects the audience? Is it designed to fit every soico-economic group and political persuasion or just those that suit the BBC coverage?

Just saw the Question Time and thought you were superb. Wondered why in the face of such adversity you managed to stay calm and managed to bat straight back. Then just found out from your website your a scouser! We're made of strong stuff! All the best and thanks for the thought provoking views. You've got me thinking about a lot of the issues raised

It was great watching it. You held your own against the representatives of the The People's Socialist Republic of Scotland. Most people in the industrial heartlands of Scotland are indoctrinated to hate anyone but Labour. ''I must vote Labour coz my granddaddy voted Labour.'' If Labour preached a policy of murdering children (come to think of it, they agree with abortion) or that dogs should be stoned to death if their breath smells too bad, the workers of Scotland would unite and still vote Labour. You had no chance of winning over an audience who still blame Margaret Thatcher for the death of industrial Britain, yet they still hold their beloved militant Unions and their restrictive policies with the highest regard, despite them being responsible for the premature death of industrial Britain. You should do a Question Time in Essex. The Labour guy/lady would be stoned to death and you would be rightly praised for being a principled and independent MP. You're my favourite Tory, alongside John Redwood!

I am Irish-American, but when you slipped in “My long haired lover from Liverpool” accent, that did it for me. You were: John Lennon!, and that is still the biggest thing in America. Do not lose that Liverpool accent! Well, “Old Darling“, as they say in England. Americans love (we love) your spontaneity. We love you!!! Wilbur Cashman Old Harvard Man.

You were completely out of your depth as per usual. Get off the tory green benches and go back to the intellectually vacant profession from whence you came. Ignorant trollope.

Lord Steel was a little s***. Did he call you the "Conservative representative" to remind the audience that you were a Conservative?

You are totally gorgeous. I have never seen an MP brighten up Question Time in the way that you did.

We have our own Joanna Lumley. The Labour party gets bashed by the real one.

I dont watch the Scottish Question Time. I always find it too Scottish. last night I kept watching because you were like a bright star in an otherwise dull sky. You are nothing like an MP.
