Podcast Ep. 22: Remembrance Poppies, Essena O’Neill’s ragequit and Justin Trudeau cabinet

RD E22, Justin Trudeau, Remembrance Poppies, Essena O'Neill

A beleaguered Right Dishonourable returns this week to discuss the latest in current affairs, social issues and whatever, with John joining Jazza and Jimmy once again.

First on the agenda is the thorny issue of poppies, following Remembrance Sunday last weekend, and the obligatory annual discussion on war and all that. Our three non-historians wonder how Britain feels about Germany a century after the First World War, with mixed results.

Attention then turns to one Essena O’Neill, an Instagramer who even our social media guru Jazza had not heard of. O’Neill had enough of the phonies online and decided to ragequit the Internet. But was she just doing social media wrong?

Lastly we examine Justin Trudeau’s bold decision to appoint (almost) as many women as men to his cabinet, in an act of egregious sexism/long overdue progressive reform. Delete as applicable.

PS. Apologies for a few sound issues at the start. They stop about 20 seconds in.
