Saddam Hussein was committing genocide, harbouring terrorists, trying to build nuclear weapons and invading his neighbours. He had to go even if we hadn’t signed the Geneva Convention.

Interesting to hear from the striking barrister, not so much Scott Mills. This podcast has gone so far downhill since everyone with substance left it's almost unlistenable.

Maybe when you cover some other countries' elections, at least mentioning something about their politics. Instead of just treating it as a comedy show?

Why is the UK govt unable to permit bona fide Ukrainian refugees, into the country, when they let in - every day - hundreds of undocumented immigrants ferried over by human traffickers? Absolutely disgusting. None of them have visas and the govt allows them to stay. So why not the Ukrainians?

Maybe facts about the Security Council need checking? I'd read that the USSR had a seat and when it broke up, no one objected to Russia taking the seat, but that the formal process was not followed. There could be a loophole. It's the same reason why of the UK broke up, Scotland could not just take the UK's seat at the EU. Scotland would need to go through the application process.
