In this week’s London Calling, I have to guess where James is on holiday – and I do – and James praises the British Airways staff for not once telling him to put on a mask during his 12-hour flight. We cannot agree on anything in connection with the war in Ukraine – James even takes issue with my claim that the invasion isn’t going according to plan. And James insists Shane Warne’s death from a heart attack aged 52 was caused by the ‘clot shot’ whereas I think it had more to do with his hard-partying lifestyle and his recent 14-day liquid diet. In Culture Corner, James enthuses about C.S. Forrester and Toby says he’s loving Sharpe’s Triumph by Bernard Cornwell, but he give the thumbs down to The Batman, The Sinner and Vikings Valhalla.
