Susie McCabe to make her Question Time debut

Comedian says it's ‘a bit bonkers'

Comedian Susie McCabe is to make her debut on Question Time tonight.

The Glaswegian stand-up will appear on BBC One’s flagship current affairs debate show following appearances on Have I Got News For You and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order.

She joked that her booking was ‘a bit bonkers… because I am always that relaxed about politics and current affairs.’

McCabe has previously been outspoken about  Westminster's reluctance to allow a second Scottish independence referendum.

Speaking on BBC Scotland’s Debate Night in February, she said:‘I'm 42 years old, 29 years of my life have been ruled by a government that not that I didn't vote for or my family didn't vote for, but my country didn't vote for… Yeah that's democracy. 

‘When we discuss our relationship with Westminster now, in 2022, I don't think you're discussing that relationship through the prism of Scottish nationalism. I think we're now discussing that relationship through the prism of English nationalism because it is English introverted nationalism, that has given us our current government – a government which had to move right of centre to combat the Ukip vote.’

Fiona Bruce will be hosting tonight’s Question Time from Inverness, with the other panellists: the SNP’s Cabinet Secretary for the Constitution  Angus Robertson,  Scottish Tory chairman Craig Hoy, Labour MSP for Glasgow Pam Duncan-Glancy and Spectator editor Fraser Nelson. It airs on BBC One at 10.40pm.
