Toby reveals that he’s every man the PM is – he’s sick as a dog, too. He may not make it to next week but he still wants the lockdown to end, especially in light of the way the local constabularies have reacted to the government’s directives.

What’s the direction out of this thing?

We are being responsible and maintaining our distance this week as Toby and James say the unsayable and wonder if shutting down the global economy will be worth it in terms of lives saved.

Also, the Stasi-like tendencies of the Twitter social isolation police, Boris’s handling of the crisis and whether the pandemic will mean the end of man hugs. Toby hopes it will, James hopes it won’t. Plus we salute the frontline troops – the men and women in medical service, not just in the NHS, but around the world.

On this week’s edition of the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, our men revisit the COVID-19 Panic Scale from last week and find a reversal of circumstances (primarily because James thinks he’s already had it.)

Compared to how other nations have attacked the problem of this pandemic, how is the Prime Minister doing? Has there been a U-turn or just a slight tack in strategy?

On a scale of how worried to be about Coronavirus, Toby is on three, but James is on eight. In fact, James thinks he’s got it. As of publication there’s been 373 confirmed cases in the UK and 6 confirmed deaths.

Also on the agenda: Britain’s forthcoming green budget from the relatively unknown (but heavily ratioed on Twitter) Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak, the no-platforming of former MP and cabinet member Amber Rudd and a take on the brilliance of the late Max von Sydow, who died last Sunday at age 90.

The Prime Minister’s partner Carrie Symonds is pregnant and the couple have got engaged, they have announced.

This week on the ever-popular, growing by leaps and bounds, London Calling, James sneaks off to Bristol where he goes undercover disguised as a member of Antifa to attend a Greta Thunberg rally.

Then James and Toby congratulate their old friend the Prime Minister on the news of his impending nuptials and the prospect of becoming a father again at age 55. The lads wonder how they would behave if they were unmarried and living in Number 10.

On this week’s edition of the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, a house-bound James and enthusiastic Toby talk about the Coronavirus pandemic (and… shhhhh…. a little insider trading), compare Bernie Sanders to outgoing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and assess his chances of beating Trump.

Then it’s on to the Ministry of Culture and the fallout of the Harvey Weinstein verdict, Netflix’s Locke and Key, and the unique awfulness that is Amazon Prime’s Hunters.

More

On this week’s edition of the United Kingdom’s Fastest Growing and Most Trusted Podcast®, James discusses with Toby his and his daughter’s adventures with the NHS in the A&E of his local hospital (that’s an ER for you Yanks), as well as the casualties of Boris’s recent Cabinet reshuffle.

Then it’s up to Cambridge where Extinction Rebellion is protesting the destruction of nature by, uh, destroying nature. Delingpole’s pro tip of the week: They are terrorists.

Say what you want about our intrepid podcasters but they are real stand up guys. For Toby, he’s fresh from his smash debut as a stand up comic, for James… well, he’s lucky just to be standing up, having spent the last couple of days battling what he’s sure is some Chinese bioweapon disease.

As for the rest of the show there’s Boris Johnson’s transformation from licentious hero to finger-wagging scold, the UK’s new Internet regulator, and the BBC’s strangely impressive suicide strategy. And of course the Oscars… Have you oppressed a cow today?

More

In the first true Brexit Era outing, James and Toby talk about their recreation of the famous VJ-Day kiss in London, as well as the BBC’s woeful coverage of the Brexit celebrations.

Then it’s off to Boris’s ‘Green Conservatism,’ Prince William’s criticisms of the BAFTAs for being insufficiently diverse and whether the word ‘Empire’ should be dropped from the Order of the British Empire.

More

It’s short but it’s oh, so sweet. James and Toby are together in London to celebrate the United Kingdom officially ending their time in the European Union. Raise a glass boys!

James and Toby need to be careful on this week’s edition of the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast® because someone may be listening in… Yeah, we know, that’s the point
More

On this week’s edition of the United Kingdom’s Fastest Growing and Most Trusted Podcast®, the country’s true power couple, James and Toby, marvel at the Queen’s negotiating skills, who has proved better than Theresa May at facing down a hostile foreign power.

They also discuss the subject of the latest Delingpod, Laurence Fox, and the reaction to his appearance on the BBC’s Question Time.

More

This week on the United Kingdom’s Fastest Growing and Most Trusted Podcast®, James and Toby discuss (what else?) the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s ‘conscious uncoupling” from the Royal Family and speculate about the source of Meghan’s power over Harry.

Then it’s on to the lack of diversity in the Oscar and BAFTA nominations, their fair-weather Brexit friends and the untimely death of Sir Roger Scruton. (Links to Toby and James’ written tributes can be found here.)

More

This week on the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, James and Toby talk about their new hero Ricky Gervais and his latest turn as the host of the Golden Globes, as well as Qasem Soleimani, Harvey Weinstein, the Australian bushfires and why Gwyneth Paltrow should be the next leader of the Labour Party (because no one can sell snake oil like her).

Like a two-man flash mob of International Men of Mystery you never know when you’re likely to get an extra dose of Delingpole & Young. We hadn’t planned on a show until the New Year – but with stuff this good you can’t stop it, you can only hope to contain it.

What brings our gentlemen to the mic? How about the mental state of Jolyon Maugham QC, the anti-Brexiteer, who tweeted about wielding a baseball bat and killing a fox on Boxing Day? And if that’s not enough, how about Greta Thunberg’s historic meeting with David Attenborough?

The Delingtree (James Delingpole Twitter)

It’s our gift to the world!

In this episode of the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, James and Toby bring you loads of Christmas cheer. We start with the UK’s most famous Christmas tree (that barely fits in the Delingpole household) and more importantly, handy and manly tips on buying gifts for the wife.

Must. Not. Gloat.

Oh, the heck with that. It’s an Election Special and James and Toby discuss Boris Johnson’s glorious victory.

More

In the first of two (!) episodes this week, James and Toby argue about who is better prepared for political imprisonment if Jeremy Corbyn wins the election. Both lay down their markers on the results, so place your bets.

In other news they lament the fact that a BBC disc jockey has banned ‘Fairytale of New York’ and salute their friend Greta Thunberg for being named Time’s Person of the Year.

More

This week on the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, James Delingpole and Toby “Tory Tosser” Young get sweaty and nervous about Britain’s forthcoming election. And with good reason: The Electoral Calculus Projections opened with a Tory majority of 72 and now it’s down to 34. The 12th of December is coming fast.

They also discuss Toby’s unpleasant experience debating at Durham University and Hugh Grant’s intervention in the election. Finally they turn their attention to the culture – specifically The Irishman, which they both hated.

In America, we call them “Party Platforms.” In the UK they’re still called “Manifestos.” And if you’re running someone like Jeremy Corbyn, why not?

This week on the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, James and Toby dive into the buffet that is the Conservative Party manifesto, which Mr. Delingpole finds indigestible but Mr. Young finds tasty. But that’s just the main course.
