  • Fomerly I had an extremely postive perspective on the Spectators audio output. Generally nuanced and sometimes seriously contrarian (in the best sense) since covid 19 it has been essential listening. However, I found the decision to air and produce a segment that essentially promoted, almost without caveat or debate, gendered harassment FB groups shockingly wrong headed. A lazy clippings peice fueling mind numbing tropes, I'd expect better from the spectator.

  • Scary how economically illiterate your contributors are. Seems just chucking more public money at a problem seems to be their answer.

  • Not one person on the opposite side of this green stupidity. It's like listening to people talking seriously about whether Father Christmas is real and his impact on jobs. Everyone of this talkers all just have pound signs in their eyes it's virtue signalling claptrap.
