A ‘dog whistle’ is an odd metaphor to use for coded, bigoted messages in politics. Its original aim was to denote something heard by a politicians’ supporters while being silent to everyone else. But for the most part it doesn’t work that way.
A Blairite’s review into the gig economy, Donald Trump Jnr’s non-suspicious meeting with a Russia lawyer, and racism accusations against French golden boy Emmanuel Macron and some nobody MP are the three topics this week.
Joining us are Jazza’s technical skills, or lack thereof.

With Tony Blair urging the people to “rise up” against Brexit, Labour MP Diane Abbott complaining about bigoted online abuse, and PewDiePie accused of anti-Semitism, it’s been an uproarious week in politics.
Joining us to chew this over are the ladies of DAS Podcast, Ruby Pabani and Charlie Brades-Price, whose excellent periodical podcast sees feminism take on the likes of beauty, pregnancy and the Internet.

An explosive row within the Labour party about anti-Semitism, the upcoming elections across Britain and the latest happenings in America’s White House race are the three topics this week.
