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.
This week, James and Toby talk about the Delingpoles recent holiday in Costa Rica (he loved the wildlife, but not the masks) and then it’s on to the events of the week:
The £400m release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and Anoosheh Ashoori from Iran, Elon Musk’s proposal to wrestle Vladimir Putin for Ukraine, whether or not James is suffering from ‘oikophobia’ (Roger Scruton’s word for people who loathe and detest their own country), the ongoing war in Ukraine and whether it really is going as badly for Putin as the mainstream media and Western politicians maintain, and finally, the horror that is the Online Safety Bill.
In Culture Corner, Horatio Hornblower, Somerset Maugham and The Ipcress File.
Opening sound this week, Nadine Dorries, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on the Online Safety Bill courtesy of This Morning on ITV.
