Good.

The businessman, whose donations to Leave.EU during the 2016 Brexit referendum are the subject of a criminal investigation, was billed to appear in Milford Haven on 15 November.

However, he tweeted that he had been "bumped" from the weekly programme, which is hosted by David Dimbleby.

The BBC said Question Time panels "are never fully confirmed until broadcast".

The National Crime Agency is investigating Mr Banks and his Leave.EU campaign for alleged offences committed during the 2016 EU referendum following information passed to them by the Electoral Commission.

I'm buggered if I know what to make of this. Are they all out of puff and just slipping into ambivalence?

What a load a blather. Why would anyone riot when you can win a referendum by saying “we told you once.”
Quite. It's almost as if democracy's a bit complicated, and these idiots, like their hero across the pond, don't truly understand what they're playing with, even as they act in full knowledge of their actions.

Their attitude is that they've won by "our" rules, so are smashing up the stumps and denying any chance of a return match.

As somebody already alluded to, they'll be in for a bit shock when they think they can get a selfie with the riot squad assuming that they quietly support the cause, only to get a crack over the head with a batten. Their fantasies of a revolution will be short lived anyway. The far Right don't hold the monopoly for street thuggery anymore and there'd be plenty of masked Antifa types out there, too.

What's that little twat going to do in a riot, beyond hide in a wheelie bin?
I'd happily pay double the license fee is a BBC presenter put that question to him.
