All the 'Big Questions'

With one episode to go, here's a list of all the subjects on this series of Nicky Campbell's The Big Questions

One of last week's big questions, "Can you be a Christian and vote for UKIP?", caused a fair bit of controversy, given that that isn't a question you are likely to find asked by the BBC about any other political party in the UK (bar the BNP, of course).

  1. What is the BBC actually FOR these days?
    When does the EU decide that a vote is fine by them, and when do we have to get another one until we get the right result for them?
    What WAS it with lefty liberals in the hippie era that let them give cover to paedophiles and child abusers?
    Only three questions that Nicky won`t be asking...any more than how do Muslims relate to gays( BBC3 lately...didn`t go well!)
