You’d think David Dimbleby would know better. After 15 years of continuous broadcasting on Question Time, the inimitable presenter is absenting himself this evening having been injured by his wife’s bullock. Apparently he was loading the bullock onto a trailer when it bolted and he was knocked unconscious. Happily, his injuries are not serious and he intends to be back next week. Bullocks permitting. He’s done well to have avoided bullocks, given his occupation, all these years.
John Humphrys is chairing this evening’s show.
