The New Year’s Honours

In this week’s episode of London Calling, Toby collects his 50 quid and then he and James debate whether 2022 will be the year we return to normal or “The Great Reset” will continue apace.

What lies ahead in politics? What’s the line of succession in Scotland, what does the conviction of Ghislaine Maxwell hold for the powerful around the world and what are the chances of Boris surviving until the end of 2022?

With a new year comes the Honours List including the controversial pick for Tony Blair; resolutions (although James hasn’t made any); and, in Culture Corner, the Turner Contemporary in Margate, The Power of the Dog (Netflix) and Roadrunner (available on most PPV services), a documentary about Anthony Bourdain.

This week’s opening sound is of Emma Burnell and Ali Miraj reacting to the New Year’s Honours list courtesy of GBNews.

    It will be good to catch my fave Brit podcaster after I get some shut eye.

    These advertisements for the VPN are not right. Netflix makes deals for viewing privileges by location in accordance with and in support of copyright law. It’s iffy at best that it would be morally ok to go around that.

    And Netflix knows when I have Express VPN on. They only let me see their own exclusive content then. Anything location-specific, including my own location, is blocked.

    I’m always surprised when I hear that it works for other people. I don’t get understand. Netflix can almost always notice the VPN for me.
