The View from 22: Qatar World Cup: Is western grandstanding hypocritical?

November 22, 2022 – Spectator TV – The View from 22: Qatar World Cup: Is western grandstanding hypocritical?

Gianni Infantino, the president of Fifa, says that Europeans should apologise ‘for the next 3,000 years before starting to give moral lessons’ to Qatar. Should we?

Freddy Gray, The Spectator’s deputy editor, speaks to our literary editor Sam Leith and contributor William Cook about whether the West is right to lecture Qatar about gay rights and the abuses of migrant workers. Are England players responsible for sending a message, Freddy asks.

This is the first episode of The View from 22, a new show from The Spectator’s offices at 22 Old Queen Street. Each week, we’ll have a look at something that doesn’t quite fit into our usual offering on The Week in 60 Minutes.
