After a proper chastising for not being available until Wednesday of last week, Toby redeems himself through his work for the Free Speech Union – and the exoneration of an Isle of Man broadcaster.

In the heart of this week’s discussion James and Toby tackle Cambridge’s hypocrisy on free speech. The academy is fine with backing Dr Priyamvada Gopal but not anyone that comes from the right of center. We now have a Maoist movement that’s sweeping up all before it and it’s even captured the Church of England. Finally, they wonder why in the world British BLM protestors want to defund the police when the coppers are nothing more than the para-military wing of The Guardian to begin with.

James talks to Simon Dolan, the self-made millionaire, investor and Le Mans winner about the latest developments in his Judicial Review of Britain’s insane and pointless lockdown policy. It’s even worse than we thought and he’s now considering bringing a case for misfeasance against Boris Johnson

Also on the menu: Bill Gates – goodie or super villain?; inside the Sage committee; why Britain’s upcoming COVID insolvency legislation is bonkers; why rich people can never be rich enough.

…comic, voiceover artiste, Bitcoin expert, wearer of top hats, Brexiteer, goldbug, second most regular Delingpod guest after Dick – riffs with James on his worst recent investment, on the inadequacies of Boris Johnson’s rubbish government, on his latest comedy song venture and much else besides.

James and Toby begin the show with the Free Speech Union‘s legal action yesterday against Ofcom (the UK equivalent of the FCC), and their decision to go after anyone that contradicts or questions the government on its Covid-19 policy.

But the main discussion centers on the timidity of the Prime Minister – who still won’t accept that Covid-19 is on the wane. James thinks Boris is full of bluster and Toby thinks James has BDS, aka Boris Derangement Syndrome. And speaking of Covid-19, Toby reveals his test results that he teased last week.

Alistair is an investment manager, culture wars civilian, and contributor to Hectordrummond.com, the Spectator and the Critic, talks about how he was radicalised by the lockdown and why, having crunched the numbers and looked at the charts, he is a Covid-19 sceptic.

…art critic, author Culture War: Art, Identity Politics and Cultural Entryism, on Bristol, Edward Colston, the very dodgy history of iconoclasm, and why toppling statues almost invariably leads to something much worse…

More

Back before the election in December James and Toby worried about their fate under a Corbyn Government. Now the Cultural Revolution is back with a vengeance and the worries return, particularly if more left-wing college graduates lose their jobs.

Also, should we shut down The Guardian because of its links to the slave trade and the row created by Boris’s new race relations tsar.

…MD, ophthalmologist, co-author of ‘An Effective Treatment for Coronavirus’, talks about Hydroxychloroquine, #Lancetgate, Donald Trump, whether coronavirus is really going to kill us all, Big Pharma and much, much more, including at the end a bit about Bitcoin…

James talks to Dame Helena Morrissey – former bond trader turned City fund manager, mother of nine, all round superwoman – about Coronavirus scepticism, the looming economic disaster, and whether or not more women should be on the board of companies. Morrissey was tipped to be the next Governor of the Bank of England but James completely to forgot to ask her about that and, indeed, about the fake news’ gender pay gap’. But they got on well, so, another time…

Toby and James were appalled by what they witnessed this weekend: Journalists applauding the mob that tore down Edward Colston’s statue in Bristol and the police that let them do it and excused them afterwards. What’s next? Hadrian’s Wall?

Also, they start to go over the list of people who have now been cancelled for showing insufficient fealty to the BLM cause. Are you on the list yet?

Dan Cure, Libertarian, Third Wednesday Wetherspoons regular, creator – under the Twitter handle @SirDanofC – of the now-legendary School Report. Each week, Dan assesses which commentators on the right and left are having a Good War and which ones are having a Bad War during the Covid-19 crisis. (Spoiler alert: Piers Morgan is having the worst war). Dan and James sit on James’s lawn and discuss how people who are sound on Brexit aren’t necessarily sound on stuff like the lockdown. Later in the show, they discuss their favourite depressing movies, which girl they fancy most in Fauda, and the genius of Sarah Vine (but this is in the bonus section of the interview, available only to Patreon subscribers)

…Wizard. NLP Master Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, Counsellor – Steve is the mental health wizard who’ll sort out your brain and put you back on the straight and narrow. That’s what he’s done for James over the years and now he can help you too with his tips for how to avoid depression, anxiety and ruined relationships during the lockdown. He also answers James’s question: “Isn’t NLP kind of sinister weird and dangerous?” For further tips go to: www.nlpchangeworks.com

James and Libertarian hellraiser, John McAfee, catch up and discuss how John manages to look so well despite his heroic intake of noxious substances, sex and his general lack of sleep. John also talks about: why it’s important to be a self sufficient adult and to stop listening to other people, to be willing to risk everything, why he refuses to file tax returns, being charged with tax fraud, avoiding arrest, being one step ahead of the authorities, jail, bitcoin… and much much more

Not long after breaking lockdown forced Neil Ferguson, the Imperial College boffin behind the Covid-19 death model, to be bounced from advising Number 10, the PM’s closest advisor, Dominic Cummings, was found straying from London himself.

Now, James and Toby don’t think Cummings should resign for breaking lockdown, but his head should probably roll for backing the lockdown policy in the first place. Plus, are lockdown sceptics like our hosts endangering people’s life? Or is it more dangerous to follow the official advice?

James talks at length with his very special guest: Prof. Dolores Cahill, a world renowned scientific expert who has advised, amongst others, the Irish government and the EU. Her background is immunology and she and James discuss the science of viruses and the absence of scientific thinking behind and the futility of the worldwide lockdown and the terrible potential knock on effects

This week the British bed-wetters are doubling down on the lockdown and Toby and James are thinking abut forming a new political party called the Dangerous Party for people who are pro-risk.

Speaking of risk, the lads lead off with a recount of James’ near fine and/or arrest for committing an act of journalism as the constabulary questions his presence at the Speaker’s Corner of Hyde Park yesterday (and a tip of the hat to our Twitter follower @SteveRightNLeft)
