Welcome to the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show, which starts and ends with the lies we tell ourselves. Mark discusses the murder of UK MP Sir David Amess by a "British national" and finds himself recalling a sharp line from Kipling. There's a brand new edition of The Hundred Years Ago, and some thoughts on two significant if little remarked-upon areas of Chinese dominance in Mark's Mailbox and Last Call - plus a rare reprise from the music department of Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Steyn will be back here later with another episode of his current Tale for Our Time - Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey.
Tomorrow, Sunday, Mark (as he mentioned on air) will be presenting another audio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week. You can listen to the programme on Serenade Radio from anywhere on the planet at 5.30pm British Summer Time - that's 12.30pm North American Eastern.
If you're a Mark Steyn Club member and you'd like to submit a question for Mark to address on his next show, please leave it in the comments below. Do stay on topic - and no URLS, please, as they wreak havoc with our page formatting.
If you prefer to read your radio shows, Steyn Club members can find the transcripts here.
If you're just catching on to these audio diversions, we've done what we did with Mark's video shows and archived them in a Netflix-style tile format that makes it easy to catch up with ones you've missed. You'll find the audio Steyn Show home page here.
The Mark Steyn Show and Tales for Our Time are special productions for The Mark Steyn Club. As Mark always says, Club membership isn't for everyone, but if you're interested you can find more information here.
