In this episode of Irreverend, hosted by Rev Jamie Franklin, we look at football as social engineering, including political messaging in the recent women's Euros final and the decision by Premier League clubs only to "take the knee" at specific important moments during the upcoming season. We also review recents comments by Liz Truss to the effect that if she becomes Prime Minister she will not implement any more lockdowns. Further to this, we assess Jeremy Corbyn's opining that more should be done to bring about peace in Ukraine - is this as shocking and revolutionary as some are taking it to be? All this, your questions answered in Question the Rev and more in this episode of Irreverend!
