John Lydon - John Lydon To Battle Louise Mensch And Company On 'Question Time'

John Lydon will be appearing on Bbc One current affairs program 'Question Time' this evening (July 5, 2012), the ever-outspoken elder statesmen of punk being given his biggest opportunity on TV in years to get across his political views.
Lydon might have become more known for entering the 'I'm A Celebrity. Get Me Outta Here!' jungle and advertising butter in recent years, but politics have always been at the heart of the man once called Johnny Rotten, ever since he joined punk band Sex Pistols back in 1976. Back in May, Lydon told UK newspaper The Guardian "no one in British politics impresses me. I could never be a member of a single party. I want the best of all worlds, thank you. The only good political movement I've seen lately was Occupy Wall Street. They had no leaders, which was genius. But unfortunately it always ends up with some hippy playing a flute."
His contributions are sure to be firey therefore, and he will be joined on the panel by former Home Secretary Alan Johnson and Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey. Tory MP Louise Mensch and journalist Dominic Lawson will also appear on the show, which is being filmed in Derby. Lydon follows fellow musicians Jarvis Cocker and Will Young, both of whom have previously been on the show in recent weeks.
