MP Jo Swinson lined up alongside controversial historian David Starkey and chairman of the Professional Footballers Association, Clarke Carlisle, on BBC One’s ‘Question Time’ last week.

The show, presented by David Dimbleby, was broadcast on Thursday and also featured MP John Redwood and Rachel Reeves, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

Mr Starkey has provoked controversy with comments on the London riots and the liberation of countries.
