BBC Question Time tweeted a clip of a woman referring to the country’s immigration policies on February 20th, 2020. They said, “‘We should fully close the borders… enough is enough,’ says one audience member, claiming that the number of people ‘flooding in’ to the UK is putting a strain on public services. #bbcqt#bbcqt#bbcqt#bb” During her question, a man can be seen grimacing in the video. In less than two months, the post got over 6.7 million views, 15,000 likes, 14,000 comments, and 3,700 retweets (shown below).
The video was dubbed a viral hit after it went viral on social media “journalist Ross McCafferty’s racist rant.” He penned, “Let’s call a spade what it is. This is a hysterical, factually incorrect, racist rant. The BBC’s decision to broadcast it, then cut it for social media clicks, reveals how backwards Question Time has become.” In less than two months, the tweet got over 25,000 likes and 4,200 retweets (shown below).

Question time theme tune

“I am one of the people he intends to tax more heavily, and I am nowhere in the top five, so I am calling you a liar.”

You’re lying about the 5%; I’m nowhere near it, and you’re going to tax me as an employee. “You’re not after the billionaires; you’re after the workers because it’s easy money, and I don’t have a choice because I’m on PAYE.” “You are wrong – we are not going to increase income tax except for those in the top 5%,” Burgon continues. That’s why we’re not going to lift your tax rate.”
According to official government statistics from 2016/17, if the man received £80,000 a year before tax, he would be in the top 5% of taxpayers in the world. Without any other improvements to the scheme, the man will have to pay an extra £50 for every £1,000 he receives above £80,000 a year under Labor. The audience member, on the other hand, continued his’misjudged’ rant, saying, “You are – I read your policy and it’s over £80,000.” “I’m not in the top 5% of the population; I’m not even in the top 50%.”

Q&a with grey: meme edition

Instant communication through the Internet encourages the spread of word of mouth, resulting in fads and experiences that spread quickly. Planking (lying down in public places) is an example of such a fad; sharing a picture of someone planking online draws attention to the fad and causes it to reach a large number of people in a short amount of time. Memes’ rapid development is also aided by the internet. Many modern memes have surreal, nonsensical, and non-sequitur themes, and “dank” memes have emerged as a new type of image-macros.
The words meme and Internet meme have recently become umbrella terms referring to any piece of quickly-consumed humorous or relatable content that is built in the format of true Internet memes but is not intended to spread or grow, and have recently become umbrella terms referring to any piece of quickly-consumed comedic or relatable content that is designed in the format of true Internet memes but is not intended to spread or evolve. What defines a meme differs by Internet culture and is subject to change over time: initially, memes consisted of a mixture of image macros and a concept or catchphrase, however the concept has since expanded to involve more complex constructs such as competitions, GIFs, images, and viral sensations.

Question Time is something the BBC is really proud of… It is the only place where ordinary citizens can ask senior officials and public figures questions. It had to be at the center of the public conversation that night.
Thus, broadcast talk has a dual articulation: it is a communicative conversation between those involved in a debate, interview, game show, or whatever, and it is intended to be heard by distant viewers at the same time.

So, what kind of accommodation do we hold in mind when researching the Question Time debate, taking into account its special characteristics? This is the subject we’ll be discussing right now.
14 The definition of accommodation is multidimensional; it allows for communication through disciplines and domains in human sciences. Giles, Coupland, and Coupland (1991: 2) describe it as follows:
At one stage, accommodation can be thought of as a highly structured and contextually nuanced collection of options that are often open to communicators in face-to-face conversations. It can be used to reciprocally and dynamically index and achieve unity with or dissociation from a conversational partner. Accommodation strategies, on the other hand, may describe wholesale reorganizations of code patterns or language selection, but they are still linked to constellations of underlying values, behaviors, and socio-structural conditions. This openness to micro and macro contextual communicative issues within a single theoretical and interpretative frame is a notable, and perhaps special, feature of accommodation. [We are soulignons]
