Brexit: Wah-Wah Way
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. Still they argue about whether Boris is about to betray Brexit by giving Huawei the green light on building the country’s 5G cellular network and all that that entails.
Our gents also take time to lament the resurrection and quick cancellation of Little Britain, the new admonishment against football watercooler talk and still more fallout from l’affaire Laurence Fox.
And then there is Labour Peer Andrew Adonis and his childish reaction to the new 50p coin.

    I always enjoy and look forward to your next podcast as much the same as I do for my favorite, the Richochet podcast. James, I enjoy your continual jabbing at Toby. Toby, I equally enjoy your good humor. Please keep it up.

    The cell phone prank was admittedly funnier than the Thanos joke. The Thanos joke was good but it Toby needs to slow down a little bit.

     Not “offense archaeologists” — thought police.

    (Use a name that enrages them.)

    Can’t say the Sikh soldier in the movie, 1917, annoyed me. They fought bravely and loyally for the Empire, so the woke see them as traitors to the anti-colonialist cause.

    I was more offended by the melodramatic elements: the treacherous German pilot, the beautiful girl and baby in the bombed-out town.

    Of course, rather than needing more people like Toby in State jobs (which would be nice), what we really need is a a lot fewer people in state jobs!

    Can you publish your list of ridiculous catastrophic global predictions?

    Sometimes I want to listen to a podcast because I’m interested in the subject, but the podcasters have such a boring voice and I drift off, and before I know it it’s over. I seem to always be able to listen to you guys – you have a great podcasting voice.

    Endgame is wildly overrated. Infinity war wasn’t bad as far as Marvel movies go, but Endgame felt like they jammed 5 movies into 1 and everything suffered from acting to dialogue because of it.

    Jolly good podcast as usual. I’ll go with James on Huawei. It’s easiest to just keep them out and get that 5G network built ourselves.
