THE PANEL for a live broadcast of BBC Radio 4's Any Questions from Park Community School in Barnstaple tonight has changed thanks to last night’s snow fall.
Guardian columnist and feminist Julie Bindel is no longer able to make it to the broadcast and has been replaced on the panel by Bronwen Maddox, another journalist.
Although Ms Maddox is also unable to attend.
She’ll take part in the show via a telephone link.
Ms Maddox was born in New York City and has worked as a Journalist with the Times and the Financial Times.
Educated in London, Ms Maddox is currently editor and chief executive of political magazine Prospect.
The show, for which tickets have already been distributed, will be broadcast live on Radio 4 from 8pm.
Oliver Letwin, a Minister of State at the Cabinet Office and former shadow chancellor, is also on the panel and is joined by the Labour MP for Exeter Ben Bradshaw, and UKIP Chairman Steve Crowther.
Mr Letwin served as shadow chancellor between 2003 and 2005 before becoming Minister for Policy when the Conservative Party came into co-alition Government with the Liberal Democrats in 2010.
The MP for West Dorset came under fire during the expenses scandal when he was forced to repay a bill for £2,145 for replacing a leaking pipe under the tennis court at his constituency home, which he had claimed on his parliamentary expenses.
Ex-BBC Radio reporter Ben Bradshaw has been MP for Exeter since 1997. Mr Bradshaw, who is currently the Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, was born in London and raised in East Anglia, but has a strong link with the Westcountry having started his career as a reporter at the Express and Echo in Exeter in 1984 before joining BBC Radio Devon in 1986.
Completing the panel is Steve Crowther, the Heanton based chairman of the UK Independence Party. Born in Bideford, Mr Crowther was brought up in Bickington before moving to New Zealand to work in sheep farming. On his return he studied business at Bristol Polytechnic before pursuing a 30-year career as a journalist, writer and businessman.
