Trumped Up

Welcome to this week’s Weekly Sceptic podcast – episode 29!

Toby and Nick discuss Trump’s arrest and how Ron DeSantis may react. They then talk about the infamous Suella Braverman picture and the thousands of subsequent Auschwitz memes shared on Twitter by people who were only a month ago railing against Andrew Bridgen’s Holocaust quote. Nick and Toby go on to discuss the distinction between ‘disinformation’, ‘misinformation’ and ‘malinformation’…

They then speak about the British Police turning away from enforcing free speech rights whilst spending time (and taxpayer money) on woke diversity training. And Nick and Toby discuss the glorious implosion of the SNP!

Boris is back in the news – with hostilities resuming between he and Dominic Cummings.

Nick Dixon is incredibly talented, funny and handsome too. Toby is a very poor Ian Hislop clone (circa 1997). I’ve merely said this in the hope Nick will read out my above comment. Oh, hang on, Toby Young is a free speech warrior. Defending your rite to be wrong. Bugger, that won’t work. Errm Toby is a Tory who thinks their loosing an election will do them good. Yet, doesn’t apply this logic to his beloved QPR, football club (kickie ball game). Oh, I give up....his heart’s in the right place.

Toby argues it simply an echo chamber effect but doesn’t that prove how easy it is to have a single voice, shouting loudest being echoed. If that single voice is indeed captured for nefarious reasons, it shows how easy it is to create a conspiracy. They don’t all have to ’be in on it’. Toby’s logical fallacies are an argument for the mechanism of how conspiracy ’theories’ are really very easily executed.

1:06:20 I’m disappointed that Nick didn’t do the old joke: Q - Do you like Dickens? A - I don’t know, I’ve never been to one

I love listening to London Calling followed by this one, just to get my weekly double fix of Toby being a wishy-washy cuck on almost every issue :D

Mal-information = Non-crime hate incident. Good to see the UK leading the USA in the information prefix stakes.

across as the more considered and less emotionally reactive candidate for 2024 but Trump did do some good work in the WH which is often undeplayed and the Media have treated him appallingly since he first announced he was running pre 2016. It will be very interesting to see how it pans out. Re Biden’s lifestyle and laptop it’s the Ukraine 10% for the Big Guy connection that has to be investigated thoroughly.

Sadly Toby appears to belong to the Orange Man Bad Club with regard to The Donald. Trump has some major flaws and DeSantis definitely comes
