Is he tipsy or half asleep?

Seemed drunk. Sad to see considering previous problems.

I'm afraid he gave the impression of being both. David Dimbleby, I'm sure recognised the situation and tried to keep him out of the various questions but unfortunately he kept interjecting. Such a shame for a man who in his pomp had much to offer to his political scene.

Having said that the quality of the show's 'guests' left a lot to be desired. Deviating 'off question' reached new heights

He will disappear into obscurity after losing his seat to the SNP in May.

I notice Dianne Abbot seems to be showing understanding and compassion for a fellow MP on her twitter account.Assuming these are her words

"I see the old alcy Charles Kennedy is on tonight looking all red & hungover."

That was a fake Twitter account, mdd2.

He appeared to be absolutely smashed.

Great shame because he had the potential to be one of the best politicians of his generation - he had a humour, common touch and apparent decency that marks out the best politicians. He's still only 55 and ought to have a great deal to give, but sadly the last 10 years or so would appear to have been blighted by his problems. Its hard to see his performance last night doing anything other than hastening the end of his tenure as an MP.

Smashed he may have been, but he wasn't the most cringe-worthy member on the panel.

Maybe not but he was a pitiful sight.

The BBC could have saved a few quid by canning Bennett and Kennedy and inviting on Sir Les Patterson to represent both of them

he did seem confused and considering his past it's easy to assume he was drunk. personally i thought he was as well.

but as for numpty's point as for going off topic; the populist fool that is dimbleby will always let it get off topic if it's a subject that is going in the way he likes. he is totally unsuitable to chair question time.

get richard hammond in!
