Welcome to the Weekly Sceptic podcast – episode 28!
This week, Nick and Toby discuss Gary Lineker’s ‘heroic’ stand against the BBC as well as how scared the Government is of footballers. They discuss Fiona Bruce being criticised for adding a legal disclaimer (at the behest of a producer) to a reference to Stanley Johnson’s alleged domestic abuse.
Toby discusses the recent victory against the Orwellian ‘non crime hate incidents’ and Nick suggests a clever way to get the police to take burglary a little more seriously.
Nick and Toby discuss the January 6th ‘insurrection’ footage, the Q-Anon Shaman’s treatment, the potential provocateur infiltrators and the inevitable media reaction. They also chat about Hugh Grant being interviewed on the red carpet and how his intolerant petulance – why is this ex-model bothering me? – went viral.
This week’s sponsor is Thor Holt and you can find him here or on his Substack, LinkedIn or Telegram channel @thor_holt.
Birdwatch makes a welcome return this week and the boys discuss the reaction (meltdown) to Peter Hitchens’ claim that the Nazis were Left wing.
And of course – Nick and Toby compete for the title of Peak Woke.
