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.
After our intrepid duo review Toby’s great success in shooting, the conversation turns to the case of Australian cartoonist Michael Leunig who was dismissed from The Age for comparing resisting mandatory vaccination to the fight for democracy in Tiananmen Square.
James and Toby then place a £50 bet on whether or not the Government will implement “Plan B” (mask mandates, vaccine passports, working from home directives) before January 1, 2022.
We also touch on the so-called David’s Law, named after Sir David Amess that proposes to make anonymity on social media illegal.
In Culture Corner, we touch on the return of Succession, The Brothers Karamazov and Purgatory’s Shore.
This week’s opening sound is of The Australian media writer Sophie Elsworth on Sky News Australia’s The Kenny Report.
