The View from 22 — Twitter abuse wars, Theresa vs Boris and Egypt’s Arab winter

1 August 2013

Will online abuse and trolling ever be stopped? On this week’s View from 22 podcast, Hugo Rifkind discusses his Spectator column on the subject with Helen Lewis of the New Statesman. They ask if trolling has got better or worse? What, if anything, can or should be done about ‘morons’ who mindlessly attack people? And should politicians — like Stella Creasy — be influencing the moderation policies of social networks like Twitter?

James Forsyth and Toby Young discuss the next Tory leadership battle: Theresa May vs. Boris Johnson. James reports that these two top Tories are jostling to succeed David Cameron, even though the PM is expected to be in situ after 2015: Boris isn’t even going to stand in the 2015 election. Who is most likely to be successful? And how might the EU referendum help Boris position himself to succeed Cameron?

Plus, the Telegraph’s Con Coughlin and Douglas Murray explain why Egypt’s deposed Muslim Brotherhood should have learnt from its own past and looked to Colonel Nasser on how to run the country.
