Real Kings Don't Eat Quiche

Programming note: Mark will be back for Tuesday's Steyn Show, live at 8pm BST - that's 3pm North American Eastern. Immediately afterwards, Mark and Mister Snerdley, James Golden, will be live on New York radio powerhouse 77 WABC at 4pm Eastern.

~Welcome to a brand new week of The Mark Steyn Show. Today's episode begins with Mark's take on vaccine widow Charlotte Wright's hard-won victory at Southwark Coroner's Court - and the disgusting reaction of the Lord President of the Privy Council to one of the few MPs willing to champion Charlotte's cause. Chief Gammon June Slater returns to the Steyn Show to give her response, as does our Stats Man Jamie Jenkins.

Jamie also has a few thoughts on the sudden urge to blame Brexit for everything - even though, as Mark's new book promo puts it, Brexit "never quite happened".

We end the show with Alexandra Marshall joining Steyn to remember Barry Humphries and his stellar creations Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson.

All that plus Mark's Mailbox - and a word on "Coronation Quiche". To watch the show, simply click above.

~As Mark mentioned on the air, he has a new book out, The Prisoner of Windsor. If you're willing to pay list price, you can get a personally autographed copy over at the SteynOnline Bookstore. But, if you can live without Mark's inscription, you may procure a handsome hardback at a lower price with cheaper shipping from Amazon. It's also at Amazon Canada, if not yet (for some mysterious reason) in print form at Indigo Canada, although they are selling it digitally.

Aside from buying his book, there are multiple ways of supporting Mark's important lawsuit against the UK state censor Ofcom in the English High Court, including:

a) signing up a friend for a Steyn Club Gift Membership;

b) buying a loved one a SteynOnline gift certificate; or

c) joining Mark, Alexandra and many more on this summer's Steyn Cruise.

Among the benefits of Mark Steyn Club membership is that you can enjoy The Mark Steyn Show in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you find Steyn and his guests more convivial in non-visual form, please log-in to our Audio and Transcript versions. To listen to the above show, simply click here.
