I am not sure about the rest of the things this guest talks about, but she is very wrong about Yugoslavia. It has nothing to do with 'soviet era', and not true Milosevic was in power during 'soviet era', not true people did not want to vote for communists... Just mistakes. Many books are written about this and it is strange to hesr this after so long time and so many books. She sounds very interesting, but than I hesr this and not sure she knows what she is talking about.

Mugglenet is horrible representation for Harry potter fans. Please stop asking for their opinion. I'm a young person and so are all of my friends. none of them have issues with JK Rowling or are going to boycott her.

What seems most chilling is the precedent this law sets. It isn't just Muslims that leave the country who should be concerned. As British Citizens we should ALL be concerned at this 'slow creep' legislation. Put in place for the right moral reasons this offers the spectre of un-intended application written all over it. Much in the same way that hate speech laws have been twisted and used in ways never intended when first introduced.

Having just started working my way through these podcasts I am struck by how off the mark some of the predictions are. It would be nice to see a podcast that every now and then re-evaluates earlier casts and tries to see where and why the thinking was off. For example the way Rees-Mogg kept out of the media for the entire rest of the campaign.
