A Se’nnight of Steyn, May 27-June 2

In case you missed it, here’s how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~On Memorial Day Steyn presented a song for the season, some thoughts on war and sacrifice, and then roped in the real talent in the family.

~Mark’s Tuesday’s column looked at the European elections – the Tories’ worst result since 1678, Labour’s worst since 1910, and the Brexit Party’s best since it was founded six weeks ago: it was our most read piece of the week.

~On Wednesday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on Robert Mueller’s press conference, the Brexit betrayal, the Green sweep of Europe, Mark’s ties to Tony Blair, the appropriate music for Mr Standfast and much more. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Thursday Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to discuss, as we gallop toward impeachment, the strange alliance between Robert De Niro and one thousand federal prosecutors:

~Mark’s Friday column previewed his return to Ottawa to give evidence to the House of Commons on whether to restore the revolting Section 13. Along with Lindsay Shepherd and John Robson, Steyn will be speaking to the Justice and Human Rights Committee this Tuesday, June 4th, at 8.45am. If you’re in the vicinity of Canada’s capital, do come along and say hello.

~Our Saturday movie date marked the passing of Claus von Bülow – the film critic’s critic.

As our second-birthday celebrations of The Mark Steyn Club come to a close, we’re delighted by all those who’ve decided to hop aboard for our third year. Angela, from California’s Central Valley, says simply:

I am very happy with my membership.

Thank you, Angela. We’re not sure we can handle such unqualified contentment. From New York’s Hudson Valley, Barbara feels likewise and adds:

I also just signed out for the second sold-out Cruise and can’t wait to see all the super Steyn fans in Sept!

Barbara sang a mean “Girl from Ipanema” on last year’s Steyn cruise, so we’re interested to hear what’s on the set list for Alaska. As Barbara noted, our Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise has sold out, so to mark our second birthday we’ve announced our Third Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise, with special guests including the Trump-pardoned Conrad Black, the fearless Douglas Murray and more.

There are many different aspects to The Mark Steyn Club. If you’ve a friend who’s a fan of classic fiction in audio, we hope you’ll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership: Your chum will get to enjoy not only our latest adventure, but also Mark’s readings of Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Conrad, Kafka, Kipling, Gogol, Scott Fitzgerald, Jack London, Baroness Orczy and many more, all easily accessible from our brand new Netflix-style Tales for Our Time home page.

A new week at SteynOnline begins this evening with our Song of the Week, and continues with Mark’s Tuesday appearance in the Canadian Parliament.
