Thank you for all your questions. If you missed the live broadcast, the action replay can be heard in full here.
UPPERDATE! We're live now, so let's have at it!
UPDATE! We'll be going live in about fifteen minutes, so do get ready to fire off your questions via the comment form below. See you at the top of the hour. And to listen simply click the livestream feed.
It's Friday - which means I'll be conducting another edition of our Clubland Q&A live around the planet. The fun starts at 3pm North American Eastern time/8pm British Summer Time. We'll try to pin down the rest of the time zones below, but do, as they say, check local listings.
On today's show I'm happy to take questions on almost anything - other than the Durham Report, which I cannot believe even the rube right is affecting to take seriously. Other than that, give it your best shot. It's touch-and-go whether I'll make it through the full hour, as I've been having more wobbliness, and such energy as I can muster has been largely devoted to conferring with m'learned friends re our lawsuit against the totalitarian commissars at the UK media censor, Ofcom.
Today was the deadline for Lord Grade and his thought-police to provide a satisfactory response to my solicitors' letter. They provided a most unsatisfactory one, so we're off to the King's Bench Division of the High Court.
Many viewers and listeners have asked how they can support this suit against Lord Grade, Dame Melanie, and their enforcers. Well, aside from buying my new book, The Prisoner of Windsor, there are other ways to lend a hand in getting us to the High Court of England, including:
a) signing up a friend for a Steyn Club Gift Membership;
b) buying a near-and-dear one a SteynOnline gift certificate; or
c) treating your beloved to a stateroom on this summer's Mark Steyn Cruise.
The post-Steyn GB News, now reduced to an increasingly unwatched Tories'n'trivia channel, will not be joining me in court. But the fearless Naomi Wolf will. The "chilling effect" of Ofcom on public discourse is far worse than Canada under Section 13 or Australia under Section 18C, so once more unto the breach...
~If you enjoy our Steyn Show all-stars - Eva, Leilani and Alexandra - all three of them will be on this summer's Mark Steyn Cruise - because Ofcom can't get you in international waters (we think). No tests, no vax passports, but just a week of fun on the Adriatic with the aforementioned ladies plus Mister Snerdley, Tal Bachman and other Steyn Show favorites. More information here.
~Whether or not you're a member of The Mark Steyn Club, you can listen to our Clubland Q&A live as it happens wherever you chance to be on this turbulent earth: Club membership is required only to ask a question. We love to hear from brand new members, so if you've joined this week, either for a full year or a see-how-it-goes experimental quarter, do shoot me a head-scratcher for today's show. But, if you're not interested in joining, no worries, as they say in Oz: We seek no unwilling members - and as always the show is free to listen to, so we hope you'll want to tune in.
As soon as we go live, members should log-in and submit their queries via our comment form below - and I'll answer them as-it-happens on the audio livestream that should magically appear above (or possibly below - I forget which). And, if you disagree with my response, then let rip in the comments, and I'll endeavour to address a couple of the objections as we go along.
Clubland Q&A is a special production for The Mark Steyn Club. We're not paywalling off SteynOnline or any of that nonsense - and in fact this site now offers more free content than ever before in our twenty-year history. But Club membership does confer a few benefits, starting with participation in our weekly Q&As.
So see you back here live this afternoon at 3pm North American Eastern Time. That's 4pm in the Canadian Maritimes, half-past-four in Newfoundland - and, beyond the Americas, 8pm in London and Dublin; 9pm in Paris and Berlin; 10pm in Kiev and Moscow, now in the same time zone if not the same country; 10.30pm in Teheran, for all you Newfoundlanders who move to Iran for the half-hour time zone; midnight-forty-five in Kathmandu, for all you Iranians who move to Nepal to check out the quarter-hour time zone; 3am in Singapore, Honkers and Perth (sorry about that); 5am in Sydney and Melbourne; 7am in Auckland and even deeper into Saturday in His Majesty's Dominions across the Pacific.
But, whatever hour it is where you are, we do hope you'll be able to join us. To listen to the livestream, simply click the "play" icon on the audio player (in certain browsers, the audio will start auto-playing). And to pose a question simply use the comment form below.
