On Thursday's Mark Steyn Show Mark started with the news that Austria has just passed its mandatory vaccination law: Even as Covid the virus fades away, the Covid regimes are intensifying their grip. John McGuirk, editor of Gript, joined him from Tipperary. Next Steyn and Anne-Élisabeth Moutet considered the bracing presidential candidacy of Éric Zemmour at the end of a week in which he was convicted of "hate speech", raised again the Great Replacement, and said the French people lacked the bottle to do a Brexit because they'd spent the last two hundred years losing all their wars.
Finally John O'Sullivan joined him with the view from Budapest on Joe Biden yukking it up about "minor incursions" by Putin.
