"The exit mystery vortex had its politics dot code at UK He's finishing his book how to be a liberal not forget about this he's been hiding from the miseries of Brexit by watching joker a cautionary town in which a narcissistic sociopathic weird floppy head thinks he's a lot funnier than he really is. unleashes chaos and anarchy on his community there's all areas hello Ian Brexit Britain Gaul some city same thing right it doesn't it feels it feels alarming earthen did you enjoy reporting on what you called them the first mythical Queen's speech faulkner so depressing because it was the as you report on it and not just when you wrote about it but when you do it has to be treated like Quin speech there so what was in the bills so you know what what was going on with health and you know to even give it that is to play his fucking gain you not to even go into the content of which frankly it doesn't really sound as much scrutiny anyway is to do what he wants is oh he's really doing is putting my own of the fucking pump and British constitutional trappings he can on what is a fucking press release and yet I can't believe that was many days ago by the way it was like it was about time and yet but on Monday that's what you have to do the whole way through is I mean that was really really fucking depressing Hyundai which has been matched only by the days which are followed right I'm how did the Queen Look she brought to her expression but she needs to get progressively more I believe year as far as I can say is that the thing is that we just sort of project onto her what your thinking so I kept on just tim this raised eyebrows she was pissy reading out but I think that is just me and the genie surpassed presents us hope for window maybe she couldn't depictions she's like a hundred yeah well I mean that is a recurring maybe no figs moan something fiamma she did seem she did but I do think that that's just me wanting to be the case I'm just desperate for to stand up and as you know what like fuck this shit you want to put up with any longer than last year also with Alexandra political commentator cook an actor currently on tour in Mozart's Seraglio Alex has been all over Britain with this excellent production on Friday he'll be introducing Durham to his Pasha Salim I've got the flu so I must apologise listeners for intermittent nays blowing light sneezing that may be gotten microphone and that's dominic coming is country Durham do you think he'll turn up and shout get brexit done open lease led him that how would have passed salim deal with Cummings I end one scene with the line follow me as I will give you instructions for his torture too uh-huh an actual line from the thing you enjoyed the state opening of parliament to cal pomp and circumstance and pretty hats approach is going to survive brexit does it look a bit silly now look I have I was gonna say I have nothing against it but actually I do I have plenty against it I think part of the political problems we have is because of the lack of modernisation in the actual thirty gotcha I mean that really sincerely I'm not being facetious I think setting up you know at the opposing sides actually sitting opposite each other in a chamber with no electronic means of voting which means they have to get up and turn to division rooms makes everything take hours longer and I think it contributes to an adversarial climate having said that I don't mind if once a year visit a little bit of silliness going on I mean I'm Greek you know have you seen the soldiers outside our parliament But on this occasion it did fail ridiculous because with two weeks to go to actual doom for us to stop and suddenly put on a fucking Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta it just seems ludicrous a special guests this week is writer and broadcaster Mike Butcher editor at large at the tech and be news source tech crunch he's regularly named as one of the most influential people in European Tech and he's also founder of the grassroots per pro final say movement tech for UK which acts as a nexus for anti brexit forces in the tech world and it builds on and tools frontier brexit campaigners tack the UK

Holly Mike Welcome to the maniacs thanks very much pleasure to be here lobbies have you too remover in Shaker technology and you're you're not having an affair with Bruce Johnson I know that was quite a key around the block on roundabout twenty thirteen and the pole dancing you wouldn't believe it was amazing flattened see the poll at all I think obviously jot like Jennifer curiae refuse to answer on in case it can I say that you know if you were a bit like the sixties if you were there you know if you remember that you weren't and about sexy UK later but what is it and how does it work briefly well The technology industry tech geeks on engineers developers designers all the polling in the industry for a couple of years well for months shall we say before the referendum the people wanted to stand the EU and it's an incredibly international industry something like a third of most tech startups and contain people from Internet national the international people and an huge numbers from the EU for obvious reasons and official bodies like oddly enough tech up I was simply standing on the fence like a lot of business organizations and so we thought in a slightly trolled them and we'd made tech for UK because we you wanted to say that there really was a tech industry movement in favor of of the and also to not just sort of say that but also to build tech as well it's been a couple of weeks in social media facebook effectively wash their hands of responsibility for truth and political advertising it seems like very bad look for platform that already has serious trust issues doesn't yeah FACEBOOK has an enormous issues will pretty wear of that felling the revelation about things like Cambridge Analytica is very tough I think to some extent if you want to sort of say that there's something positive that on our side the organic nature of facebook groups specially You know pro you groups is very powerful because you can't advertising is you WANNA balance you can't buy those thousands of people in those groups active in activating and doing things like getting out in streets etc but it can work the other ways Countess of bewildered pellet late absolutely yeah yeah we'll get into the knife edge state of the Brexit non-negotiations later and what if anything we can expect parliament on Saturday plus how are you holding up for even the most dedicated Romania has been a
