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.
Of course the lead story this week is the death of Her Majesty the Queen. James is showing a bit of a republican streak at the beginning of the reign of Charles III and he’s not the only one. Toby and the Free Speech Union are defending quite a few as tolerance of opposing views slowly fades away across the land.
Looking elsewhere they celebrate the election of Pierre Poilievre as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and, speaking of things fading, hope that Toby will be on Boris’s resignation honours list seems to on the downside as well.
In Culture Corner, James talks enthusiastically about the book of The Godfather, while Toby praises the final episode of season six of Better Call Saul.
Opening sound this week is the BBC breaking into programming to announce the death of the Queen and part of the PM’s statement.
