Chess whiz ,

Brendan is brilliant.

Love this show, always interesting.

Sometimes bonkers…this week a philosopher who thinks Socialism means holiday leave and that Trump fuelled Brexit !! They can’t always be accurate but Brendan is quality.

Navy_Girl69 ,

Awful

I wonder if Brendan O’Neill was bullied at school , ?
He seems like a bitter , nasty human being, who I suspect, has very limited real life experience ….

Daryl.M ,

Brendan is an intellectual gem

While not a dedicated polemicist O’Neil has always hit the major issues of the day with a well researched, concise and often unique view.

He has been at the forefront of arguing for the Brexit referendum, for women’s rights, and against ALL government overreach.
