We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

If you’ve been missing 18 Doughty Street…

…then you should check out Right On, a 15 minute weekly programme from Telegraph TV. Unlike BBC programmes, it is advertiser-funded; it uses Telegraph journalists with the production outsourced to ITN. The libertarian-leaning show each week features a studio debate, a short segment of Iain Dale and Simon Heffer arguing, and Andrew Pierce’s take on Westminster gossip. In the latest episode, Ann Widdecombe – who should know better as an elected politician – throws a hissy fit under questioning about taxpayer money being spent on the second homes of MPs.

    Hah, that was incredible. After the initial hissy from Ann Widdecombe they both just kept baiting her again and again. Consider the last twenty seconds. Genius!

    This is a hell of a lot better than the pussy, leftist programmes like Newsnight and the Today programme that the Beeb makes us pay for.

  • Libertaria

    Ann’s appauling behaviour is indicative of the total arrogance of MPs – making demands on the presenter and acting with such sanctimonious superiority.

    She would have been much more credible if she had been a bit cooler and not tried to control the conversation. When will we learn that anyone who wants to be elected is not to be trusted?
