It wasn't so much that they were pretentious, more that they seemed to completely miss the heart of the play, and focus on irrelevancies. Yes, there were jokes about 'the Americans' but I took those to be about the government and defence agencies, not a whole people. And, as others have already said, criticising the audience when they had gone on press night seemed particularly absurd! But, they did show a little bit of the play, so all (ok, most) is forgiven. :D

And I didn't expect them to deeply explore every angle - it made me go away, think and question different sides in my own time so it certainly achieved its objective.

I completely agree chatterbox! Also saying there is no debate about weapons manufacture is absurd!!

Nevermind.

Very true. I think the whole panel deserve a good slap. :o

What a load of pretentious prats - can't believe the comment they made about Julians' hand gestures, when all of them were manically waving their hands around to stress every single word they were saying.

The clip was good though :D
