66: Victoria Hewson: The Bill To END Free Speech Online

Nadine Dorries, Secretary of State at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport last week released the Government's Online Safety Bill, all 200-odd pages of it. Why is a bill designed to protect children and the vulnerable from online harms potentially utterly ruinous for freedom of expression online? Darren Grimes is joined by Victoria Hewson, Head of Regulatory Affairs at the Institute of Economic Affairs, who has pored through all 225 pages of this bill to tell us why she's seriously concerned by its contents and the predicted consequences of its contents.

51: Conversion Therapy Ban Risks HARMING Kids 🏳️‍⚧️

Equalities Minister Liz Truss MP has said that she is pressing ahead with the Government’s commitment to ban conversion therapy in order to "protect LGBT people from these abhorrent practices." There’s a real concern that this would prohibit evidence-based therapy for children experiencing gender dysphoria, cases of which have exploded over the last decade. A petition has been created by healthcare professionals calling on the government not to criminalise therapy for vulnerable children. Here to explain why he supports the petition is James Esses, a psychotherapist in training who is working towards a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy. James sees regular clients for long-term psychotherapy and, crucially for his conversation with Darren Grimes today, has selflessly volunteered as a counsellor for the past five years, where he has provided weekly counselling to children and young people.

50: Andy Ngo EXPOSES Far-Left Threat To Democracy

2020 is considered to be pretty insane to many of us across the political spectrum, violent protests and riots with looting, burning and worse erupted after the death of George Floyd in May 2020 and American cities were transformed, from here in the UK, those of us scrolling through our social media feeds would’ve been forgiven for thinking some of the scenes we witness were in the third world, not the world’s most influential and free nation-state. One radical group dominated that battlefield: Antifa. Self-described anti-fascists that deploy aggressive and violent tactics that have destroyed businesses and livelihoods under their banner. Will they stop now that Joe Biden is in the White House and their favourite bogeyman: Donald J. Trump, has gone?  My guest today understands Antifa better than most. During the summer of 2019, Andy Ngo was brutally beaten by the group members whilst on journalistic assignment at a rally in Portland in the US. His new bo

48: Andrew Doyle: Social Justice Activism THREATENS Free Speech

Darren Grimes' guest today has a new book out next month, ‘Free Speech and Why It Matters’, which will be published on February 25th. The book comes at a time when the democratically elected President of the US can be kicked off of social media platforms, when banks that used to provide loans to his businesses shut off access to their capital and the new social media Twitter alternative, Parler, loses access to its hosting platform via Amazon Web Services. All of these things suggest there's a real problem when it comes to the new, de facto public square. In realising that we have a problem my guest argues that a new form of social justice activism, which perceives language as potentially violent, has prompted a national debate on where the limitations of acceptable speech should be drawn. So where should they be drawn and how do we go about doing it? 

That guest is of course Andrew Doyle, the writer, comedian and good friend of Twitter legend Titania M

What will the legacy of President Donald J. Trump be? Has Trump changed the Republican Party? Is there anything in the argument that Trump wasn’t fighting on a level playing field in the 2020 election?

talkRADIO, the fastest growing radio station in the United Kingdom, which hosts popular commentators like Julia Hartley-Brewer, Mike Graham and Dan Wootton, have had their YouTube channel removed.

33: The Case For A UK Free Speech Act

Matthew Lesh of the Adam Smith Institute on why the Government should introduce a United Kingdom Free Speech Act modelled on the First Amendment of the USA. Existing laws, as applied, Matthew argues, have created categories of “speech crimes” for offensive but otherwise benign political speech. There is mounting evidence that existing law is capable of being applied, and is actually applied, in an overbroad fashion which was not contemplated by its drafters.  e.g. the treatment of Darren Grimes in June of this year.

Boris Johnson has decided that his government shall worship at the altar of green, putting in place a petrol car ban by 2030 and a ten point green industrial strategy. Is this a mistake? Best-selling author Matt Ridley thinks so. Whilst, as Matt admits, both working class voters and the more affluent have concerns for the environment, he reckons that is likely to change if Boris Johnson’s green agenda starts to hit his new voters in the pocket.  Will those without a middle class safety net, who could face finding it difficult to purchase cheap meat, holidays, vans and energy in the future, be quite miffed about losing these gifts of modern progress?

24: Toby Young: Police Our Streets, Not Our Tweets

The Free Speech Union launched in February this year and boy, oh boy, I think it’s safe to say that even back then it’s hard to imagine just how necessary the Union would become in the fightback against a daily deluge of censorship, police intervention and general madness. Darren Grimes argues that with each passing day it becomes clear that it’s not just figures, like himself, on the conservative right, that are the victims of witch hunts and in need of a union to defend them, but increasingly figures on the Left too. What can be done? What can we do about biased big tech? About non-crime 'hate'? Darren and Toby discuss the issues.

23: End Stasi-Like SECRET Police Recordings Of Non-Crime 'Hate'

In June 2020, barrister Sarah Phillimore noticed that an anonymous Twitter account was boasting that she now had a 'record for life' of  her 'hate' as her tweets on Twitter were now recorded by the police as 'hate incidents' under what was then the 'Hate Crimes Operational Guidance'. According to this guidance, the police must record what anyone tells them about being a victim of 'hate' - you can even make a report on behalf of someone else that you think is victim! The police aren't allowed to question the motives or the rationality of the person reporting. 'Hate' is given a very wide definition, to include 'dislike' and 'unfriendliness'. This is the stuff of a Stasi-like police state, with informants and a society that turns against each other, Sarah is asking you for your support to challenge the guidance on police reporting of 'non-crime hate incidents', check out her case on CrowdJustice.

22: Tory MP: STOP Police Assault On Free Expression

Tom Hunt MP was told by Suffolk Constabulary it had “received five complaints” over comments he made about criminals – and that officers were under an obligation to record them. According to the Telegraph, the police in England and Wales have investigated and recorded 120,000 ‘non-crime hate incidents’ in the past five years. That’s more than 65 people a day being interviewed for such heinous crimes like liking a tweet that offends the wokerati. Once that’s on your record, it shows up on an enhanced DBS check, which means you might not be able to get a job as a teacher or a carer. The MP is now raising awareness, as is Darren Grimes, to try and seek reform of the reporting of these 'non-crimes' on the records of Brits up and down the country Tom argues that for this to continue will have a "chilling effect" upon debate and speech. He also argues that, far from fearing Nigel Farage and Laurence Fox, the Conservative Party should collaborate with the pair

20: Dennis Prager: Conservatism Wants Us To Be Free

Dennis Prager is a radio show host, a New York Times best-selling author, a columnist, an orchestra conductor and, crucially for Darren Grimes' introduction to the man, Dennis is the founder of PragerU. PragerU is the fantastically successful YouTube channel that has amassed billions of views and has had such an impact that not only did Darren launch Reasoned UK inspired by PragerU, but big tech seems absolutely desperate to shadow ban, restrict and outright censor its conservative content. The pair discuss everything from the lack of a moral compass in the Left, how to solve the problem of big tech censoring conservative content, the God-shaped hole that is evidenced across the secular West, how we can stop the bravery deficit by remembering the courage of our ancestors and why there's no such thing as being 'totally safe'.
