hard to comment if the show is not available to watch online yet. or is this a psychic test?

bizarrely we can watch the show from the week before but you can't comment on it as its still 'page not found'.

why is the picture quality of the newsnight watch again feed the worst on the bbc [ok..marginally better than hardtalk]?

Kwame is the blandest pannellist ever. He speaks in nothing but platitudes. He makes Paul Morley look like Martin Heidgegger.

Bring back John Harris! Johan Hari! Sarah Churchwell! Germaine Greer! Tom Paulin!

The show has too many extremely bland pannelists at the moment. Use the sparky intelligent guests more, weed out the Kwames, please.

I really enjoyed Friday's Newsnight Review, by means of turning the sound off and viewing the discussions as a ballet of hand gestures.

How about reviewing the content of the show that actually matters to the British public?

The interview between Nick Griffin BNP "Racism was a concept invented by Leon Trotsky, a communist mass murderer, to demonise his opponents and stop people talking about certain issues. And that's been taken on by the Labour party and by the BBC and the British people have been cowed, so they feel they can't talk about these things"... and Ves Labour "This government is extremely tough on immigration. This government is extremely tough on immigration. This government is extremely tough on immigration. ". If he says it often enough people might fall for it.

Keith Vaz also said “It is wonderful that your country has been transformed”, did you notice how people felt uncomfortable talking about immigration, and the interviewer said that they did not want to link themselves with the BNP, the people said no such thing, the reason people are uncomfortable is because they fear being branded racist by the Labour establishment.
