WHY is the mainstream media missing so much during this pandemic?
That’s the question the wonderful James Delingpole and the great Toby Young – yes, you’ve guessed, there’s a bit of a mutual fan-clubbing going on here – pose in their most recent edition of London Calling podcast.
To waste no more of your time, I’ll point you straight to their podcast. You’ll find James cheerful because despite all there’s never been a better time to be a sceptical journalist, he says.
There’s never been a better time to be a contrarian commentator either. Never have I been able to bask in such recognition as I’ve just been accorded. First, I found my recent diatribe against Boris’s Sunday night for infants lockdown extension homily getting an honorary mention at the top of Toby’s Lockdown Sceptics daily email summary.
If that was not tribute enough listeners to the London Calling podcast will have heard TCW’s all-girl team getting another mention. It’s at just after 22:00 in.
Delingpole: those girls have been sound as a pound
Young: ‘Bottler Boris’ is what she calls him
Delingpole: Yes! That’s true!
But believe me, I’m not telling you to listen for that – the two sceptics are well worth it, quite apart from that.
And by the way, they say Boris’s ‘a nothing burger squared’ speech was actually a coded signal for us to start going back to normal. I for one am taking their word for it.
