I hope I don't sound like a broken record but it's BBC Question Time again and what caught my eye was the scheduled appearance of George Galloway, fresh from his resounding and impressive Bradford West by-election victory.
I emailed everybody I knew who cared about the rare appearance of a principled socialist on the programme with the proviso that I strongly suspected an anti-George audience.
Well the people of Leeds didn't let me down.
Mr Galloway's performance was typically robust, honest and decisive on all issues but I do have one small criticism of him.
He explained perfectly how the so called "left liberal" David Aaronovitch went from an extreme left-wing position, to being very pro-Blair (and pro-war) and ending up writing for the criminal family - the Murdochs.
But why did he seem to scorn the fact that turncoat Aaronovitch was first a communist as if it was something to be ashamed of.
I'm a proud socialist, my late father was a Communist Party of Britain card carrier for many years and I have to say I found this particular confrontation a little difficult.
I know any high-profile socialist will be smeared and vilified by our media, which doubtless gave the Leeds audience an excuse to revile a decent politician who constantly challenges the Establishment status quo.
I rarely watch Question Time these days for reasons Star readers will know but this particular programme left me slightly uneasy in my feelings.
This just left me feeling we have a massive job of defeating the rightwing mainstream ably supported by the media.
