The Spectator Podcast: Death of a Dissident

Oct 11, 2018, 05:36 PM

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has disappeared at his country's consulate in Istanbul, with reports emerging of his brutal murder. But who was Jamal Khashoggi, why did this happen to him and what should happen next (00:38)? Also on this podcast, the Irish may harbour more anti-EU opinion than commonly thought. Is there the prospect of an 'Irexit' (12:48)? And finally, with three top public schools scrapping the common entrance exam, should we lament the demise of the eccentric admissions test for schoolchildren (22:54)?

With Bill Law, Akbar Shahid Ahmed, John Waters, Brendan O'Neill and Harry Mount.

Presented by Lara Prendergast.

Produced by Alastair Thomas.
