  1. Brilliant. Well done, Gillan, and thank you, Lord, for giving him the opportunity.

    I think you need to buckle up, Gillan – looks like this ride you’re on is about to take off…

  2. Well done indeed: excellent!

  3. I missed Question time so did not see your contribution. You mentioned in the blog the pope had his say on tax avoidance. If all the treasures inside the Vatican and owned by the catholic church were sold off that would make a massive difference to global poverty! There is a huge amount of hypocrisy spoken by successive popes.

  4. I would very much like to listen to the programme. But a search on BBC iPlayer says Any Questions ‘isn’t found’. I have found the current edition manually (ie without this daft search engine) but can’t see a way of listening to earlier broadcasts before this week. Please can you post a link. Or if that is tricky, can you post your own recording of the programme? Many thanks for a great blog, which I always look out for.

  5. God certainly does His thing Gillan.

  6. Well done Gillan, keep listening and looking for good opportunities to speak out!

  7. Great stuff Gillan. So good to see Christians being a witness by speaking up on matters of injustice. With the Church buffeted by scandal and division it’s stuff like this that can bring us all together and be an example to the rest of the world.

    And don’t underplay your contribution. Getting this issue on BBCQT is a real achievement and keeps the pressure on the Govt to make sure they stick to their promises at the G8. Thanks for your support.

  8. Thank you all for the supportive comments. I’m so pleased to have had this opportunity. The link to the programme on BBC iPlayer is here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01sk89w/Question_Time_16_05_2013/
    My question appears 19 mins 30 s in.

  9. Well done.
    I watched and was impressed by 2 things
    1 your question- ir got faith in.
    2. They kept coming back and didn’t shut you up. Unusual amount of airtime

    Praise the Lord

  10. and well done, getting the Pope’s authority in to the end: surprised them all!

  11. Gillian – I regularly watch Question Time and get frustrated that the right questions don’t get asked.

    Your question made me punch the air.

    Thank you!
