Front bench politicians to appear in Wisbech
A heavyweight panel has been lined up for an edition of BBC Radio 4’s ‘Any Questions?’ show being staged at Wisbech Grammar School on the eve of the general election.
In the last broadcast of the flagship topical discussion programme before the nation goes to the polls, chairman Jonathan Dimbleby will be joined by Michael Fallon, the secretary of state for defence and the Liberal Democrat, Ed Davey, who has been serving in the coalition government as the secretary of state for energy and climate change.
The panel will also include shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper and Paul Nuttall, the deputy leader of the UK Independence Party.
A capacity crowd of 500 is set to attend the live recording on Friday, May 1, in the school’s Russell Hall, and the programme, which is repeated on Saturday, is expected to attract an audience in excess of 1.5 million listeners.
