What it comes down to is whether you are part of the culture of death or you believe in that all people we created in the image and likeness of God. Apply that test to our leaders, are they capable of wearing the crown of thorns? My leader is! Christ is king. Not Rishi, Humza, Tony or Klaus, we are watching the collapse of the Tower of Babel.

Haven't yet finished the epiosde but can't help thinking that you are both in a London bubble of opinion! Up here in the wilds of the North, no-one wants Net Zero- farmers know it's waste of time and energy, young people that I know ( admittedly my own kids are quite based- thank goodness!) and local friends who differed on Covid but are spot on with the bonkers dangerous Net Zero.

As a Londoner this is good to hear. I certainly don't believe the oft quoted poll that said 73% support Net Zero. They're just virtue signalling to the pollsters. Put them in the privacy of a polling booth in a Referendum, having told them during the campaign how much Net Zero will cost them, and they may well take a very different view.

Great episode guys but Nick was rather brief on his health status.

Douglass Mackey case in USA (ten years potentially for a meme about voting for Clinton by SMS in 2016) puts those fine upstanding men and women of FBI who make sure that there is no malarkey in US elections into context.

Great episode, as always, guys. Toby really needs to get treatment for his TDS. His naivety re just how low/far the Dems will go to stay in power is mind boggling at times. Barry is still President in all but name - the great Thomas Sowell calls

(continuing previous comment)… Barry the worst President of all time, taking over from Jimmy Carter. The one consolation I have from following the US political is that it cheers me up (for about 5 minutes) re the mess in the UK.

Matthew Parris is 75 yrs old, is he therefore volunteering for MAID if it’s introduced? Or will he be exempt because he is fortunate enough to self-finance his health and social care costs?
