Thank kcuf for monocle. BBC please take notes
Monocle should not be the best news outlet. But it is
Now just a a BBC lookalike …. Stick to non political subjects
Love the magazine and am a subscriber. And won’t cancel but the Briefing, the Daily and the Globalist are just a mirror of the BBC. Totally Anti-brexit, totally pro-Biden, completely pro War in the Ukraine….. and I voted and would again for remain, would probably be a democratic…..
So sad that they could not keep things actually democratic
Informative, erudite, fun - all in less than an hour
A great range of guests, subjects covered and with different presenters. Very enjoyable and well worth investing your time here
