The rise of woke capitalism

Toby Young joins Snowdon and Slater on this month’s Last Orders podcast.

Topics Politics UK

Why did the makers of Irn-Bru sabotage their own business by capitulating to the sugar tax? What will be the legacy of Dame Sally Davies, the former nanny-in-chief? Why is the Scottish government getting children to make recommendations on alcohol policy? Toby Young joins Chris Snowdon and Tom Slater to discuss all this and more, on this month’s Last Orders podcast.

I stopped at the lights next to an AA van, decorated in rainbow colours and slogans suppoting gay pride. Blew a kiss at the driver, poor bloke, his thunderous facial expression was of one who was not amused. It must be like having your employer demand you mince about a bit in solidarity; no doubt any objection would career suicide. Chances are, he doesn’t have an issue, neither do I, but luckily, I can, and will, choose another company that doesn’t include virtue signalling with its vehicle recovery services.

Shrinkage in Sweden is infuriating because a pint is now 400ml, and you are not allowed to buy 2. Just one for each person with the bar staff having to enforce this. And it is 2.8%. The price has not shrunk. £5. At least you’ll go home sober.

No way can sugar free drinks address a hangover.

Interesting podcast, but it’s all very ‘agreeable’, isn’t it?
Why not invite the occasional dissenting voice, otherwise it looks like the ‘safe spaces’ our esteemed universities seem to favour nowadays.

Ven I imagine it is very difficult to find anyone who at election time will come on and defend sugar free Irn Bru and Temperance Toddlers.
