We've sort of mentioned Farage saying the west provoked Russia and later Nick mentions what a bad idea it was electorally for Sunak to propose National Service without tying the two together. In fact I've barely seen it mentioned in this campaign and yet it should be the number one priority for everyone in this country and that is we are being dragged unequivocally to war. Sunak didn't propose National Service because he suddenly thought young people should be required to visit old people in nursing homes. It's clearly the prelude to full scale conscription. If you think that when war breaks out your children will be ok because they opted for the volunteering at weekends option, of course they won't. If you think Labour won't get on board with a war/ conscription if they're told to be the 'higher ups' then you're deluded. Not wanting your children to be conscripted for a pointless war should be reason on it.

...on its own to vote Reform. Sort of lost the impact of this comment because you can't edit after you've somehow accidentally posted the comment before you'd finished it...

Interesting on your comments about Starmer working in the police service in NI. Was he also exaggerating his role in dealing with terrorists when he was DPP. Anyone would think he was embedded with Navy Seal Team 101 tracking Bin Laden in Jallabad the way he speaks.

Please sort out the sound quality. On Podcast apps, Toby is almost inaudible. For those of us who like to listen on the move, this doesn't work.
