Shamima Begone

Welcome to The Weekly Sceptic - episode 26…

The boys discuss Jacob Rees-Mogg’s GB News debut, Rishi’s Northern Ireland deal and the prominent brexiteers’ reaction to it. Nick and Toby discuss the ‘desecration’ of the Quran by pupils at a Wakefield school and whether, because of multiculturalism, Britain now has unofficial blasphemy laws.

Shamima Begum makes a return to the news and Nick and Toby discuss people’s varying reactions (as well as their own) to her wishing to return. Scott Adams has been completely cancelled and the boys go into detail regarding whether it was justified, whether Adams is on the spectrum (and then, of course, inevitably they discuss whether they themselves are on the spectrum).

JP’s best appearance yet - I wonder if he has a view on the meaning of life, assuming it’s not 42. This show has 100% displaced London Calling in my listening habits - I hate that I had to side with sensible Dad so frequently! Whereas here, Dad’s kicked off the slippers and is at last allowing the excitable and slightly needy terrier to have his fun without too much course correction. Thanks guys, a highlight of my week.

”Shooting brake” ??? Jeez, Toby -- how old are you? Nobody has used that name since 1967. No wonder it went straight over Nick’s head. [For information, ”shooting brake” is what people used to call an estate car in the 1950s and 1960s, hence Toby’s reference to buying one in a second hand car showroom.]
