Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Live from London. This is Midori house. I'm Ben Ryland on today's show the US gets a new congress tomorrow, but that government shutdown. Well, it looks at to roll on for a lot longer. Also ahead blows my mind that it took the killing of a Washington Post journalist for everyone to go. I guess he's really not a reformer. Meanwhile, every Muslim person, you know, was like, yeah. No shit. He's the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, the American comedian Hasan. Menage catches the eye of be Saudi government, but shoot net. Flicks have pulled his comedy series. Joining me full analysis of the former diplomat join Everard and the journalist Michael Goldfarb, plus China makes its plans for Taiwanese unification bluntly clear, and if you want New Year's resolution was to finally right that screenplay. Well, we'll tell you why twenty nine teen could be you'll year. That's. Oh, come on Midori house starting now. And welcome to the Dory. House. My guest today. John Everard, the former British diplomat who's held posts in Belarus, Uruguay and North Korea and Michael Goldfarb, an author and journalist based right here in London. Happy new year to you both and welcome to ALPHA's program for twenty nineteen as well on a day that also happens to Mark the conclusion of the one hundred and fifteenth US, congress the one hundred sixteenth congress will arrive tomorrow to a government in the midst of a shutdown as fiery debate continues of President Trump's plan for a border wall. I must say a plan. That's not looking too good at the moment. Michael. It's always a blame game isn't at one suspects. Trump thinks is all hurting the Democrats at the moment is Iran. Probably not I one of the things that happened in the last month of twenty eighteen is that a lot of key staff kind of just left. Left and they had basically checked out over the previous sixty days. So the last quarter. He's had no good advice. Not that he listens to much. Good advice. This was a fight. He didn't need to pick. The wall is this thing for his base. Everybody knows there's not going to be a wall. There might be new stretches of barrier and to shut the government down with a new democratic house of representatives coming in leg by woman now to Pelosi who actually knows how to use the legislative process to get what she wants. I think it's a fight. He didn't need. So what we're going to see over the next week? Or so is they'll be I mean haggling, and whether there's actually going to be some kind of funding. This is the critical thing that in a budget Bill continuing resolution to keep the government open. There will be money for funding the wall, my guess is there won't be as much as he wants. It'll be 'cause medic and they'll all get back. To work eventually. But for now, it's a useless waste of time. But then what's the Trump presidency in a word, a useless waste of time. Well, join ever I suspect the Donald Trump might say that there's no such thing as a bad fighter picking fights is really a hallmark of his leadership style. If you could call it that and at the moment, at least, he seems to be dictating the terms of the discussion, even if that discussion isn't necessarily a positive one is it baps still doing him some good to four Trump to be seen to be out there packing. Some punches. I don't think it's true that there's no such thing as about fighter bad fight is one in what you look stupid to your own base. And I think Trump runs a real risk of society that happening he has to deliver this wall. He's staked his political credibility on it. And every time he has these great Nuremburg style rallies. The base bay for the wa-. All they don't care. What it looks like whether it's a fact or anything it says, it's become iconic, which means the Nancy Pelosi, mice cut, right? I mean, Nancy pleasant knows all about how to use rules. She can hold into ransom..
