The Index of Undesirable Persons

A plethora of topics on this week’s episode of London Calling: environmental protests, Boris’s double U-turn on banning conversion therapy, the non-dom (that’s “non-domiciled,” for our American listeners) status of the wife of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the horrors of the latest CCP lockdown in Shangai, the French election – and finally – Boris’s surprise visit to Ukraine.

Our Culture Corner segment covers The Dropout (Hulu in the US, Disney+ in the UK), WeCrash  (AppleTV) and the new documentary, Jimmy Saville: A British Horror Story (Netflix).

Opening sound this week is the PM’s joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

    Good podcast, but I could have used a little explanation of “non-dom,” which I had never heard before.

    Yes it did take awhile to figure out that was short for non-domestic. For a moment I thought they meant non-denominational but since religion is all but gone in the UK it couldn’t be that. Two nations divided by the same language and all that. Cheers mate.
