Sealed With a Kiss

In the first true Brexit Era outing, James and Toby talk about their recreation of the famous VJ-Day kiss in London, as well as the BBC’s woeful coverage of the Brexit celebrations.

Then it’s off to Boris’s ‘Green Conservatism,’ Prince William’s criticisms of the BAFTAs for being insufficiently diverse and whether the word ‘Empire’ should be dropped from the Order of the British Empire.

    I totally thought they were joking in the last episode.

    Well that wasn’t disturbing at all.

    Nope. Not in the slightest.

    Isn’t it kinda insulting to non-white people that it is presumed that they couldn’t get nominated on the basis of merit alone?

    I am reminded of a Monty Python skit, “What has the Roman Empire ever done for us?”
