Hit First, Hit Hard, Hit Often

Half of our intrepid duo comes to us this week from Birmingham, the site of the 2022 Conservative Party Conference as the PM and the Chancellor retreat from the higher-end tax cuts.  Its a pugilistic edition of London Calling as James and Toby pick a fight and debate the proper strategy to win one.

In Culture Corner, James takes on The Old Man (FX/Hulu in the US, Disney+ in the UK) while Toby reviews This England, Sky Atlantic’s regime-approved wet dream version of the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic (US release date and network TBA).

Opening sound this week is Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng defending the u-turn on the 45p tax rate courtesy of BBC News.

    Were they ACROSS the board tax cuts? If YES then they should never back down.
