Winning The Virtual Debate

This week James and Toby recount their doings in support of The Great Reopening… and the deeds of others, too. (Protests have erupted here, here and here.) Delingpole goes walkabout in his area of the country and comes away a bit disappointed, but others are fighting such as this Edinburgh shopkeeper or this salon owner in Oakenshaw who has racked up £27,000 ($36,888 US) in fines so far.

Toby, on the other hand, has an unqualified win in the Cambridge Union debate: “The Lockdown Was a Mistake.”  Evidently that sort of thing will happen when you stay sober for the entire month.

In the Culture Corner the gents dive deeper into the series they started last week, including It’s a Sin and WandaVision. James gives a thumb’s up to the Canadian comedy Schitt’s Creek, a CBC series currently on Netflix. Toby renders judgment on TAG (2018) and The Mauritanian.

    Apparently “Captain Tom” could not be vaccinated as he already had pneumonia…
