Following weeks of dreadfully dull line-ups, tonight's BBC Question Time may provide something worth watching.  Unusually there are just two MPs in the line-up, neither of which we are particularly excited about, although Alison McGovern looks like she is about to cry in that photo.  Of greater interest is the presence of Novara Media's Ash Sarkar, the girl most famous for her spat with Piers Morgan in which she declared she was "literally a communist".  Her presence alongside a banker (Howard Davies) and ex-Tory minister Portillo should be enough to spice things up.

Migration is almost certainly going to be on the agenda and with any luck Portillo can give us a repeat of his evisceration of Owen Jones on that subject...
