⁣For this weeks meander through some of the news stories that have grabbed our attention we welcome a brand new guest, the unabashed comedian Abi Roberts!
Having lived and studied in Moscow in the nineties she will be giving her unfiltered opinion on the situation in Russia, looking closely at Ukrainian President Zelensky, telling us her memories of time spent there and then we look at PM Boris Johnson signalling that Putin should face war crimes over the invasion, Formula One cancels the Russian 2022 Grand Prix, Chinese Embassy in Canada highlights the tyranny and brutality seen in Canadian cities (pot calls kettle...), Red states quietly get on board with the vaccine passport, New vaccine promises 100% protection from severe disease, German tech giant builds global COVID vaccine app for the World Health Organisation and another 'rare' fatal seizure in young adults reported: this time a 27 year old actor from Coronation Street.
We finish with the fake news media throwing out COVID in exchange for war, Putin making Biden fart and troubled former British pop star sends a warning to Putin.... We bet he's shaking in his Ushanka!!!!

Abi Roberts is a British stand-up comedian, writer and commentator.
Abi became a professional stand-up in 2012, and since then has played some of the biggest clubs across the UK, and had several sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
She became a comedian because she wanted to write her own material and have the freedom to express her worldview – and make thousands of people laugh at the absurdity and wonder of life.
Abi does not worship at ‘The Church of Woke’! If you ask her how she identifies or what her gender pronouns are, she would give you this answer: “I’m a straight female who’s flattened a lot of grass. I spent much of my university days behind a club called Cinderella’s with a cone of chips in one hand and a pint of Snakebite and Black in the other. For balance. I once dabbled in Lesbiana but couldn’t fully commit because, like a London cab driver, I wouldn’t go south of the river.”
Abi’s stand up show Anglichanka, which was about living and studying in Russia, gained her several 5 star rave reviews and the show toured the UK.
She was the first comedian to do shows in Moscow in both English and Russian, as Abi explains “My father was a spy… sorry, diplomat, so I went to the Soviet Union as a kid and then in the early 1990s I studied opera at the Moscow Conservatoire. Over the years, I’ve met many people who have been persecuted by the Soviet regime, including Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, so I have an inbuilt hatred of all authoritarian bastards who encourage denouncement and punish freedom of speech.”
She has appeared as a guest comedian on BBC Radio 4’s Midweek, Saturday Live and BBC Radio Scotland’s The Janice Forsyth Show, and ITV’s Good Morning Britain, debating mandatory vaccine passports opposite Edwina Currie.
As a writer, Abi has written for several publications including Spiked and The Times.
Abi is a regular commentator on GB News, You can see her on Tonight Live with Dan Wootton and Mark Dolan and she also appears regularly on Andrew Doyle’s Free Speech Nation as well as Nana Akua’s weekend Debate show on GB News every Friday from 4-6pm.
Twice monthly she joins Ann Widdecombe and Emma Webb in Widdecombe Webb & Woberts streamed LIVE on the New Culture Forum YouTube channel and also contributes regularly on Talk Radio & Times Radio and you can see her in person at the Backyard Comedy Club on Sunday 10th April.
