    Two interesting discussions but let down by the loud mouth rude audience.

    Firstly the Palestinian gentleman suggesting that prisoners should be out in the streets in bright orange outfits and shamed. He needs to do some research where he will discover the percentage of prisoners with neurological impairment, people struggling with addictions,poor, disadvantaged and people with mental health issues. Margo MacDonald spoke the most sense on this debate.

    But when the Israel question arose the two suited Palestian gentlemen spoke quietly about bringing people of all faiths together. However when the two gentlemen scholars from the other side of the room spoke about their research and so on, the two Palestian men let rip. In particular the man wearing the black and white checked tie with matching scarf started loudly ranting over everyone and everyone's point of view and he even accused Nicky of taking sides (not his so he was not happy). Then we had the rude man yelping from the back throughout and the loud Glasgwegian woman who was really out of order and behaving oddly ranting rudely to the scholar who mentioned the human rights of Hamas against for example women and homosexuals.

    The show was completely ruined for me by the loud Glasgow femal and the two Palestinian men especially the one draped in black and white who should have been removed from the building and really I was not in the least bit interested in what he was ranting about, I just wanted him to shut up. He is not a good advert for his cause, more like a trojan horse.

    Yes very true but these three totally ruined the show and okay they embarrassed themselves but the BBC should eject these overbearing idiots because they ruin an otherwise good show that should be about public opinion. they should have been ejected along with the bloke who was rewarded for shouting out during the show by being allowed a rant also.

    Hmmmmm as opposed to the usual London based ignorant bigots screaming and shouting. To single out Glasgow and a Glaswegian female (that is the correct spelling) shows your own nasty prejudice.

    I f you have a problem with the speakers or the audience that is fair enough but "Glasgow let down"? Please!!!!!

    In my view the Palestinians and the Glasgow female should not have been allowed so much space on the show as their unintersting rants over other speakers ruined the show and demonstrated their lack of tolerance for other peoples opinion.

    This was the worst shows were people yelped over others. Yes Glasgow let down for me. But only because the more interesting speakers were not allowed to express an opinion due to the constant ranting over them by the three Palestinians and the Glasgow female.

    Do you usually refer to people as "the insert name of place female"? It shows very poor manners and by the way it should be Glasgwegian female if anything!

    That woman ranted throughout the programme, she was from Glasgow and for me let the side down. She was on a par in a way with the three Palestinians, particularly the one in the checked scarf and tie who should have been removed from the building as he consistently ranted over other speakers that I wanted to hear.

    Oh I do apologise. Please do let me know where you are from so I can preface every remark I make to you with your place of origin. Or you could just grow up?

    try and stick to the debate old chap, other people (apart from yourself) are entitled to an opinion.

    The show disappointed me due to Scottish woman yelping over everyone else in keeping with the three Palestinians who did not wish to hear or allow anyone else to partake in the debate unless they agreed with them. The unbearable man in the black and white necktie etc should have been removed and not just quietly asked for the umpteenth time by patient Nicky to shoosh.
