Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
In this week’s London Calling, James and Toby discuss the QPR’s failure to reach the Championship play-offs, last week’s local election results (“Boring,” snorts James), Sinn Fein’s success in Northern Ireland and what that means for the future of the United Kingdom. Then there’s Keir Starmer’s announcement that he’ll resign if the Durham Police conclude he broke the rules during Beer-gate and Simon Kuper’s new book about how all Britain’s ills can be laid at the door at Toby and James’s generation of Oxford students.
They briefly take on America’s turmoil with the leak of the Supreme Court’s likely decision to reverse Roe v Wade, in which James thinks was a manufactured distraction of the Pfizer document dump.
In Culture Corner, we praise Slow Horses, condemn White Hot: The Rise and Fall of Abercrombie & Fitch and Toby continue to bang on about Ozark, but allow that it has probably come to the end of its natural life.
This week’s opening sound is of Labour Leader Kier Starmer promising to resign if cited.
