London Calling is two days late this week, thanks to a computer malfunction at James Delingpole’s end. We had to record this one via Zoom, which means James sounds like an intoxicated Dalek at times. But we thought it would be better than nothing.
In this week’s episode, I tell James I’m in Mexico, one of the few countries you can travel to if you haven’t been vaccinated. After James has mastered his jealousy, we go on to ask whether the Freedom Convoy will prove Trudeau’s undoing, speculate about who will succeed Erin O’Toole as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, puzzle over Prince Andrew’s £12 million legal settlement with a woman he’s never met, get into a debate about the future of the Monarchy (James is a republican), and, in Culture Corner, continue to obsess about the implausibly muscly body of Jack Reacher in the new Amazon Prime series, which we both love. The series that is, not Reacher’s six pack.
