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 pre-Dominion Day edition I'm willing to take questions on anything we've discussed earlier in the week, plus any other topics you feel we've missed - such as, for example, the French riots, or the US Supreme Court decision on "affirmative action", or the apparently unanimous decision of UK financial institutions to deny Nigel Farage and his former party bank accounts.
I'm also happy to take any questions on my free-speech lawsuit against the UK state censor Ofcom in the High Court of England over its "rulings" against me for my coverage of the Covid vaccines. The case is officially called:
The King on the application of Mark Steyn
The Office of Communications
You can read my Statement of Claim here.
A fun read that seems real!
Don't know how he got the transcript of the EU meetings in Brussels but it seems to be a correct description of the meetings, scary!
Also goes to a good and worthy cause that I hope he wins for all our benefit.
Thank you for that, Amr. You don't have to buy it just to support my Ofcom suit; as the above attests, it's worth it on its own terms. However, aside from procuring a copy of The Prisoner of Windsor, there are other ways to lend a hand, 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 next week's Mark Steyn Cruise. He or she will love you forever.
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 will all be on that aforementioned 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 Michele Bachmann, John O'Sullivan 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.
