Joining us is the odd omission of any Trumpery.
The death of Winnie Mandela, wife of Nelson and key figure in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, has prompted inevitable jostling between the opinion sections of Britain’s newspapers.
The Graun fielded a complaint from Afua Hirsch that the obits would have been nicer if Winnie was a white guy. This was prompted by Andrew Malone of the Mail, who described Mandela as ‘an odious, toxic individual who continued to preach hatred rather than reconciliation right up to the end of her life.’
The totally-not-Russian attempted assassination of a former Russian spy, a grovelling apology from National Geographic about its racist history, and the shortchanging of our dear Queenie (er, Claire Foy? – Ed) are the three topics this week.
Joining us are Steve and Richie of What Am Politics?, the podcast that breaks down big political issues into comedic bite size bits. When you’re done here, listen to our slightly inebriated appearance on their show discussing more bloody Brexit.
