Like a two-man flash mob of International Men of Mystery you never know when you’re likely to get an extra dose of Delingpole & Young. We hadn’t planned on a show until the New Year – but with stuff this good you can’t stop it, you can only hope to contain it.
What brings our gentlemen to the mic? How about the mental state of Jolyon Maugham QC, the anti-Brexiteer, who tweeted about wielding a baseball bat and killing a fox on Boxing Day? And if that’s not enough, how about Greta Thunberg’s historic meeting with David Attenborough?More
It’s our gift to the world!

In America, we call them “Party Platforms.” In the UK they’re still called “Manifestos.” And if you’re running someone like Jeremy Corbyn, why not?

Last night was debate night in the UK and it was pathetic. James and Toby dissect the “girly-man” tussle between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbin on ITV’s “Tron” set, Nigel Farage’s separate appearance on the BBC’s Question Time and “minor Royal” Prince Andrew’s PR nightmare turn with Emily Maitlis.
Then it’s off to the culture wars and real wars. We get reviews of Netflix’s new WWII documentary series, the big screen retelling of the battle of Midway and Ford v Ferrari. Back then, men were men.More
This week on the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, James and Toby get right down to the task at hand. Mr. Delingpole eviscerates Mr. Young for being insufficiently conservative.
