    What's happened to the News Quiz ? It used to be topical, witty and funny. Last week's and tonights (it's Friday) seem to be nothing but a soapbox for anti government/coalition propaganda - or an opportunity for Sue Perkins to give us her left wing views on life. Which is generally just scoring political points. There are enough political points scoring shows. I am no Tory or Lib Dem. I just want the News Quiz back.

    Very true, very sad. In the last ten years the BBC has become a monoculture of left wing opinion and like all monocultures it's starting to wither.

    Self-congratulatory, smug, snobbish and just not funny any more.

    The News Quiz is supposed to be funny, but its not.

    The reason for this is the poor quality of guests on the show, not their political persuasion. Radio 4's comedy line up is full of left wing comics, but most are actually funny. Those on the News quiz aren't.

    I too want the News quiz back.
