    I submitted the following question using the online form i.e. linked above:
    My question is to Q&A Moderator, Mr Tony Jones.
    Mr Jones, given that politicians and other societal leaders take up the vast bulk of panellists who appear on Q&A, why is it that audience members ask questions of the panellists rather than the other way round? Especially in the case of participation by politicians, is it not INappropriate to have the general public ask the questions (again, rather than the other way round)? Thank-you.

    Confirmation message:
    Thanks. Your question has been submitted. We read all the questions and publish almost all, but can only use a few on TV. Thanks for sharing your question.
    I did not attempt to register to attend the Q&A Episode to be held this Monday (6/6/16) as I am no doubt too late in doing so. I am recuperating after a singular stress I encountered in life which peaked last Monday (30/5/16).

    I am thankful for having the opportunity to submit: (a) my question to Q&A; and (b) this comment here.
