Matt 117: TF 2019 General Election

December 11, 2019

Content warning: at around 1:10:00, Nate discusses a traumatic experience he had in combat years ago, which doesn’t make for particularly light listening. We just want to make sure you’re not caught unawares if you’d rather avoid hearing it.

It’s election day! Please, please, please go vote Labour and help us end this nightmare! Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts) and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) discuss the upcoming vote, some stupid articles, and a vision of things being better.

In a preview of this week's bonus episode, we speak to David Adler of DiEM25 about what Remain and Revolt would actually mean -- and why the EU's labyrinthine politics is intentionally boring. We also discuss some great pre-election post-mortem columns, a thing that makes sense. You'll love it!

It keeps getting dumber as we get closer and closer to election day! Boris Johnson threatened to pull Channel 4’s licence because they embarrassed him, the Lib Dems are plunging in the polls, and a recent terror attack on London Bridge in turn resulted in Boris going cartoon movie fash. This week, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Alice @AliceAvizandum join special guest Josie Long (@JosieLong) for a roundup of all the very normal goings-on.

Mollie joins Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani),  Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) to discuss Jo Swinson's plan to build an exciting liberal world with the power of markets and STEM education, so she can nuke it.

Boris Gear Solid Part 3: Syncretic Apotheosis ft. Nish Kumar

Boris Gear Solid Part 3: Syncretic Apotheosis ft. Nish Kumar

November 18, 2019

Comedian Nish Kumar joins the gang to read from Boris Johnson's strange 2004 taut action comedy racist sex novel 72 Virgins for the third and final time. It is genuinely unbelievable that this guy is Prime Minister, not just because of all the outrageous things he says or implies about everyone who isn't an Eton educated white guy, but also because he's just so... incompetent as a communicator. Mostly it reveals more about him, his contempt for you and me, and his extreme internalised guilt about voting for the Iraq War.

If you can vote in Britain and you do not want the man that wrote this book to be your Prime Minister, then you must do the following things:

*UNLOCKED* Boris Gear Solid 1 & 2: Tactical Racism Action

*UNLOCKED* Boris Gear Solid 1 & 2: Tactical Racism Action

November 18, 2019

It’s Parts 1 and 2 of our journey through Boris Johnson's terrible novel, 72 Virgins. Or as we're calling it, Boris Gear Solid: Tactical Racism Action.

In Part 1, which we recorded live at Cambridge, we are introduced to our characters of the Boris Johnson Extended Universe. Meet such characters as Definitely Not Boris Johnson, Horny African Parking Attendant, Unnecessary Shoehorned In Classics Reference, and Woman.

Bad writing often reveals more about the author than they intend, and this is precisely what we explored a few months later in Part 2 with our friend from Australia, Aidan ‘Taco’ Jones. In his writing, and with what he thinks is funny, what does Boris accidentally reveal about the way he believes the world works? What does he think of ordinary people? How is he so horny for all of his characters, and yet so deeply sexless?

If you can vote in Britain and you do not want the man that wrote this book to be your Prime Minister, then you must do the following things:
