“Authoritarian in the streets, Libertarian in the sheets”

As Britain registers the worst COVID toll in Europe, why is blame for the failure sliding off Boris Johnson? Lovelorn Prof Neil Ferguson feels the sap rising. Operation Bookshelf Barbarossa. Why VE Day belongs to us, not the petty nationalists. Is the fish a credible war animal? And who decided that if you’re pro-Brexit you’ve got to be pro-virus too? Dorian Lynskey, Naomi Smith and Ian Dunt police one another’s tones. 

  • “People are saying this is not the time to criticise the government. It’s TRIPLY the time to criticise the government.” – Ian Dunt
  • “VE Day wasn’t about victory OVER Europe. We can’t let the Daily Mail own it.” – Naomi Smith
  • “If anyone’s going to fight to the death to go to the pub right now, it’s me.” – Ian Dunt

Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Ian Dunt and Naomi Smith. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producer: Jacob Archbold. Audio production by Alex Rees. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
