Boris and Blighty’s Big Day

Around these parts, we strive to provide Class A Punditry® no matter where in the world the news happens. So this week, we jump across the pond to cover last night’s stunning Tory victory in the Mother Country. To do that, we call on our mate Toby Young (he of the London Calling podcast, aka Great Britain’s fastest growing chat show) who takes us through all of the machinations and expectations of this historic election. Then, it’s back home where we get a visit from our newly minted Ricochet Podcast Chief Impeachment Pundit, Professor John Yoo, esq. (if you’re not listening to his Law Talk with Epstein & Yoo and Pacific Century podcasts, you are missing out). The Professor takes us through the week’s events with lots of legal insight and analysis with no spin. We wish our good pal Pat Sajak a speedy recovery by awarding the highly coveted Lileks Post of The Week badge to   @PHCheese for his post Get Well Fast Pat Sajak and we’ve got a new Long Poll question for you.  Finally, Rob attends a Christmas party with a bunch of frogs, Peter is rocking out on Handel, and Lileks will blow your snow if you ask him. Leave your requests in the comments.

Music from this week’s show: Rose of England by Nick Lowe

    You know, I was going to put up a similar comment, but I thought we were running a classy joint here.

    It needed to be said.

    @jameslileks where is that section of skyway you mentioned?  I work in the building adjacent to the Strib but for the life of me haven’t heard any decent Christmas music while roaming the halls downtown.

    @jameslileks where is that section of skyway you mentioned? I work in the building adjacent to the Strib but for the life of me haven’t heard any decent Christmas music while roaming the halls downtown.

    Would that be the new Strib building, or the old one?
