On this week’s #NCFNewspeak, host Emma Webb is joined by the New Culture Forum’s senior fellow, Rafe Heydel-Mankoo, historian and broadcaster. Topics discussed today include:
* America’s abortion debate blows up as the Supreme Court’s draft decision overturning “Roe v Wade” is leaked to the press. What’s going on, how does this play into the wider culture wars and what are the implications for the UK?
* #TractorGate & #GrowlerGate: Has the storm surrounding porn in Parliament and Angela Rayner’s legs been completely overblown? Why is the Conservative Party pushing for 50% of its MPs to be women? Is Parliament unsafe for women or, as Rafe argues, are women now enjoying the best time in Parliament?
* We have just marked the 25th anniversary of Tony Blair’s first election as Prime Minister. What is his legacy? From mass immigration to devolution and “the long march”, was Blair the worst Prime Minister we’ve had?
* A Canadian government report has just made a remarkable attack on religious liberty. The report, which attempts to root out discrimination in the Canadian Armed Forces, recommends banning Catholic, orthodox Jewish and Muslim chaplains on the grounds that they are male only and these religions do not approve of paganism and polytheism.
