Yes, I know… the other day I slammed Delingpole, and I do not recant a word of it, but his podcast guest this week is (again) Brendan O’Neill.
It’s spectacular. I want Brendan’s babies… in fact, on the strength of it, I’ve just re-established my monthly donations to Spiked-Online, which I cancelled when they moved their comment system over to Facebook.
I’m still salty about that, mind… a website that is all about freedom of speech, democracy and the individual, having a comment system that requires you to submit to the Zuckerborg before you can (in principle) have your say? It’s beyond absurd, and the decision maker on that should be pilloried.
Nevertheless, Brendan’s sheer rightness on everything else is prevailing for me today.
