"Seven thirty three in London. Now some argue that a country's leader set an example to his or her citizens and behaving away to make the nation proud others. Say that what a leader gets up to behind closed doors is no one else's business will sitting rather firmly into the first school of thought it's the case of the Prime Minister of the suit. A man of who for some time has faced accusations that he was involved in the murder of his ex wife. Well Thomas Ivano has now decided to step down and tell us more. I'm joined by Monaco's Andrew Moolah Andrew a delight to have the radio. What is happening here? Well IT GOES BACK TO JUNE. Two thousand seventeen the carpenter when his ex wife Lipa Lillo. Tobacco was shot. This was a couple of weeks after he had been elected. Prime Minister for the most recent time and just a couple of days before he was due to be sworn in now. Initially nobody left to the conclusion. Not the first couple of the sue must be involved because the country does regrettably have quite a high murder right but to the surprise. According to local reports of many Lesotho citizens the police did in fact take an interest and before long did charge the prime minister's current wife Messiah Tabatabai with murder. The prime minister still remains under suspicion but hasn't been charged. He did his best to try and clean on which is remarkable really up tune including suspending parliament as recently as March which he claimed was necessitated by Kovac Nineteen Vo at that point. The Su- didn't in fact have any cases. He tried to call the army into the streets to back him up in April claiming that he was being undermined by various nefarious elements in Lesotho law enforcement. But he does now to run out of options to crucial moment seems to have been that interlocutors from South Africa arrived to bang some heads together because politics occasionally gets somewhat out of hand in that tends to have an impact on South Africa and they were very keen that this or get resolved. Have any idea what has really happened with the cases of Mrs Listens to Bonnie WanNa Mrs to Bonnie to all we know so far is the soothsayers police believe that. Say Tabatabai was in some way involved in the murder of Leyla to ban. They don't actually think she did it. The suspicion is that she may have engaged others to act on her behalf so y is uncertain reviewing local media this morning whether to ban a has managed to find any way out of this for him and or his wife whether some immunity from prosecution was attached to his agreement to quit a little. Bit More you mentioned the fact that there's an investigators coming in from South Africa who are expressing interest. Why has South Africa decided that it wants to get involved? Sue is is literally geographically surrounded by South Africa and South. Africa has two reasons for concern. Basically one is a fairly fundamental. Law of South Africa's drinking water comes from mountains and therefore obviously stability in the suit who is something that South Africa's interested in but also the South African South Africa doesn't need to terribly long memory to recall nine hundred ninety eight. There was violence and chaos in the suit through following an election. South Africa sent an intervention force which they initially envisaged would be a fairly limited kind of deployment. You show willing fly the flag get everything. Back onto control disconnected rather badly. Several South African soldiers were killed and quite a lot of Lesotho's capital. Masauru ended up being damaged or destroyed and south. Africa is very very keen to avoid any repeat of events such as that. They're very briefly. Andrew What happens next? Well what happens next is. We're pretty sure who the next prime minister is going to be. That is going to be the current. Finance Minister Moeketsi Majuro to Bonnie technically remains caretaker. Prime Minister Until may twenty second now given his capacity for improvise ation mischief making shape. Fifteen in general getting himself out of trouble. That could end up being a fairly intriguing a days but I think the key question that a lot of people are waiting for an institute is whether he has negotiated some sort of excusing from prosecution. Andrew Mueller thank you very much. Indeed with multiple twenty. Four UPS is a global financial services firm with over one hundred fifty years of heritage built on the unique dedication of all people.

"I mean you ask such a great question and it's very hard to measure what building those relationships buys you transaction. You know for your agenda but I did invest in in going to meet with the ambassadors. I mean on one level. That wasn't that big a deal. It wasn't like I was going to their countries right. I was going to their missions. I didn't have to leave Manhattan. But it was one hundred ninety one meetings over the course of my time. More than fifty of the ambassadors missions that I visited none of their predecessors or them had ever been visited by an American permanent representative before and so it definitely got their attention. You know that this was a way of showing respect and valuing their individual dignity and that they mattered even if they were from a poor country or a small country or an island country that you go to them and you listen to them and you take them seriously. So on one level they are still individuals vigils within their systems and it's not like meeting with their heads of state but on another level I do think building those relationships showing respect means that they hear your message I I think by and large in a more sympathetic way that they hear the authenticity. Also of your commitment to the issues you care about because you're talking about what matters to you in those again non on transactional settings. I played soccer with the Latin American ambassadors. A definitely tried to draw on those relationships when it came time to tough votes. So what I'd say is on issues. Where a country's position was fixed which was a lot of issues relationships? Just aren't going to be that big of a deal on the question of for example sample. LGBT rights which is very very difficult issue for a lot of countries within the UN because seventy plus countries criminalize being LGBT. But those awesome Bassett may become not necessarily advocates for LGBT rights but they may become people who have a dentist appointment during the vote or they may become people who are capable of taking an option that I give them for how they make the argument to their head of state namely procedural argument will. Why would you take away benefits for same sex couples that the ban Ki Moon? The Secretary General has granted that would be a procedural infringement on Bunker Moons Authority as secretary general so in other words. It's my job to give them an argument that they can use with a leader or in a government that may be homophobic intrinsically but give them up procedural place to go and they may then take that and run with that because they sense that this really is about dignity and equality and they are willing to hear me out that. There's a way needed get there. That doesn't touch on the most sensitive issues in their country. Same on standing up to Russian aggression in Ukraine. You would have thought that that for any any country within the UN would be a no brainer just to vote in the general assembly to preserve Crimea as part of Ukraine on the maps and not to recognize rushes. Che's illegal attempted annexation but a lot of countries just wanted doc you know. They don't WanNa even if they are the ones small countries especially have the most to gain by having the international rules of the road respected. They just don't want to confront a big power like Russia and don't like the thought of being on Putin's bad side who would and yet I felt like I got the most sympathetic hearing could and manage to mobilize I think through these relationships largely more than one hundred votes which ensures that the maps no matter what Putin does on the ground will not change. which again is mainly symbolic on one level? But it means that Ukraine will retain this historical claim for a time where maybe someone like Putin isn't governing Russia. And so that's on those kinds of issues where they have discretion to make the case discretion to show up or not show up but on on issues that cut to the core national interest or national interests as they understand them so. I don't want to exaggerate. Also you can't transform the world because he plays soccer. With the Latin American ambassadors boundaries my things to Samantha Power and Andrew Moolah.

An impact through other instruments of policy have caused policy and political leaders in Beijing to sit up and take notice and it may have been as a consequence of Chinese policy overreach in a number of areas that the great American beer has finally awaken Being Awoken from its long hibernation in terms of what's scene unfolding and Water East Asia for quite a period of time although it remains for me completely unclear as to what the actual content of the future of American Grand Strategy Strategy in response to China's rise might be America at President in my judgment has an attitude about China is yet to give evidence that it's got a strategy for dealing with China China Xi Jinping's China has become much more assertive about its national security interests. It's view you all of its international economic engagements and the prosecution of that's called it China's understanding of its iron value system in the world. And you can see the influence of that through the various instrumentalities for example the United Nations and the Britain would system excetera in other words China's political economy the entity itself.

Can land expropriation help heal South Africa?

"In addressing inequality quality it seems a straightforward indeed elegant policy. Take stuff off people who have a lot of it and give it to people who don't have any of it however anybody certainly any government proposing such a measure would do well to heed the immortal wisdom of H L Mencken who wants observed that there is is always a well known solution to every human problem needs plausible and wrong nevertheless the idea of land expropriation has returned to the public discourse in South Africa a panel assembled by President Cyril Ramaphosa to look into the idea has returned a proposal recommending in limited circumstances the seizure of land without compensating the owners. We should no longer be afraid of this process of having to change the land ownership architecture in our country. It is here and it is here to stay. It is going to happen land. Land ownership has been a persistent issue in post-apartheid South Africa and not without reason a quarter of a century after the racist monstrosity of apartheid was formerly dismantled white South Africans who comprise roughly nine percent of the population still own seventy two percent of the farmland possessed possessed by individuals as an illustration of the lingering effects of systemic injustice. It's hard to beat this by lament is rare opportunity unity to redress on this past wrongs to allow the natives who have lost so much to reclaim the dignity. <MUSIC> BIC by kitching our land back no law shall. We be treated as life in our own land. Never Ramaphosa's panel has proposed seizing land which is held for speculative purposes land which is occupied and worked by tenants and land and and that has has been abandoned it has also suggested taking inner city buildings owned by absentee landlords for obvious understandable reasons these these measures will go over well with a significant proportion of South African voters especially those who have lately been tempted away from President Obama poses his African National Congress now very much the Party of South Africa's establishment and towards the radical firebreathers of the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters Party not who nearly doubled the parliamentary presence in last May's election the F. F. led by Julius Malima who might be charitably described as uncompromising uncompromising in his general approach favors wholesale nationalization of South Africa's land. You'll say I thought what colonialism we wanted decolonisation yet yourself party or Lord Boorda's in Africa what is being proposed by President Obama poses panel is significantly less than that but it is nevertheless significant as it stands under section twenty five of South Africa's Constitution and the government may expropriate land but is required to cough up just and equitable compensation there has long been chat about amending this his clothes and or concocting some legal argument that in certain circumstances just and equitable compensation might amount to nothing they is also a growing body of opinion in our country that the constitution as it stands does not impede. beat expropriation of land without compensation that expropriation will be popular in some electorally important demographics is beyond doubt and that is very usually the clinching argument in matters of politics. Although some polling in South Africa suggests widespread unease with the idea of no compensation factor less often subject to rigorous scrutiny is whether or not a given see see policy will actually work and where expropriation nation of land is concerned. The are some discouraging precedents and if you WANNA the inroad of what you want to do today most infamously in the early years of the twenty th century Zimbabwe's then President Robert Mugabe ordered the seizure of white-owned farms and they're transferred to black ownership good have looked at what happened in Zimbabwe. Remember signor Robert Mugabe went down the same road was he also did in so doing was effectively <unk> demolish. Zimbabwe's agricultural infrastructure femme production plummeted by two thirds in less than a decade and Zimbabwe's economy collapsed alongside to the point where the country had to abandon its hyper inflation stricken currency in two thousand nine. Zimbabwe issued a one hundred trillion dollar banknote note which wouldn't buy a phosphate. They're actually doing the opposite non Zimbabwe. 'cause they realize the folly of their ways. South Africa is not Zimbabwe's and Cyril Ramaphosa Hosa is not Robert Mugabe but the <hes> some similarities many years after the end of white minority rule things remain extremely tough for many among long South Africa's black majority the unemployment rate in South Africa is a staggering scandalous twenty seven point six percent even higher among youth who. Who are increasingly drawn to the E. F F and South Africa is as Zimbabwe was an apparently attornal one party Democracy Ramaphosa a post has big problems and the means always tempting of making big gestures in response. If this Kevin was serious about restitution and redistribution we would speed up the hundreds of thousands of land claims that tremaine unprocessed in South Africa that is what it serious party would do if it was kid about land performer land redistribution the trouble is that property rights matter they are along with free and fair elections a free press judicial independence and the rule of law one of the crucial differences between functional society and a shambles property rights are also in this specific instance crucial to the foreign investment which South Africa urgently requires. Nobody is going to buy something if they're not sure they will be allowed to keep it and in fact we have said to those who are investing in no country that they shouldn't have no fear that the land property is going to be expropriated while the proposals of the presidential panel panel commendably constrained they will prompt concerns about these slipperiness of this particular slope they are of the ways to redress economic imbalance and historical injustice. The President Ramaphosa will be wearily aware that they are often more complex and long term than understandably impatient poor people would prefer he could of course set a personal example his own farm.

Well, I really love the because of course, in in many cases, they're owning place in productions that are still happening. So this direct connection and James corden is a good choice to host the Tonys because he wanted Tony some years ago for one man to governors from which his entire career followed. So he owes his his success to the Tonys. So he might as well return that a host them who will you be rooting full to take away the big Tony for play. I think probably Gary, but it won't win for best.

Centrism: the new populism?

"During these last four years or so of ruction upheaval in the usually stable arena of British politics. It has been commonly supposed that something sometime has to give this week. It did MP's from both of Britain's major parties resigned. Their memberships and gathered together under the banner of the independent group. These MP's are broadly speaking either from the right wing of the left-wing labour party or the left wing of the right wing conservative party accordingly. A not unreasonably the independent group have found themselves characterized if not caricatured as centrists in certain agitated circles, these last few years centrist has become an insult a suggestion that those to whom it is applied are complacent careerists and all snug elitists, but what with one thing and another might centrism nevertheless, be Jew. A revival with a here in the UK or in other countries roiled by populism. What right now too. Centrism really mean, this is the foreign desk. There are certain things that I think people are yearning for to come back into the political debate long term issues that need desperate action climate change ageing society productivity in the economy, what on earth, we're going to do with technological revolution. All of those things have completely been put on the backburner that sense that you give any ground the stop being ideologically. Pure has lost any powers law slaughter sway over people. And that's where I think these of centrism is an insult partly comes from. 'cause it's come to mean being the wishy washy not really standing up believing as opposed to what I think people soup proponents that kind of at UB about what is about rational policy-making when we talk about centrism or the death of centralism what we are also talking about is the rise of ideologues. So by that token, I'm going to say centrism is basically the style of technocratic expert lead consensus. Politics making which seems to be on the way. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew moolah. And my first guest today walls, one of the first wave of seven defectors to the new independent group in the UK's house of Commons. Chris Liz Levi member of parliament for Nottingham east left the labor party earlier this week after thirty two years of membership saying labor had been hijacked by the machine politics of the far lift I spoke to Chris Leslie at colors house in Westminster. I started by asking him if he saw the independent group as a centrist movement. I think it is a center ground formation, basically trying to build a consensus around what we have characterized as the main stream values of the country. We worked together on a couple of sides of four of our statement of values the values not so the policy prescription. So we haven't sort of gone into particular details relate. Getting to one particular month of one particular, but we've talked very much about those things that we think cut across that center ground so notions of fair play focusing on opportunity and merit in terms of advancing through society, but also recognizing the importance of responsibility, both individuals having to take some responsibility. But also, the political responsibility international responsibilities. We all have I think the public. Yes. Want compassion in their politics and hate the fact that particularly from the conservative side. Has felt as though is left the vulnerable isolated, but they also care about tax payers money being spent properly with adequate scrutiny those are pretty basic things and sometimes taken for granted. But I think now is a period where we've had to reassert some of those values because the public have have haven't heard that from the main parties for a long time. What's your feeling about? Why centrism though has become it has literally become a term of abuse or centrist has become a turn of abuse, especially within the labor party in this country, which well within living memory prided itself on upholding exactly that you'll have heard this criticism already the idea that the independent group is basically a Tony Blair tribute act. Well, Tony Blair didn't have focused clue what was going on this week. And nobody he's I think he said himself. So we've decided to do our own thing and plow our own for oh, you can't look back to the last century for the answers of for the challenges that are going ahead. There are certain things that I think people are yearning for to come back into the political debate long term issues that need desperate action climate change ageing society in productivity in the economy, what on earth, we're going to do with technological revolution. All of those things have completely been put on the back burner because partly because Brexit has arrived and the main political parties have chosen to sit on the fence or take go down particularly euro-phobic route. So I'm aware that there is this attack that somehow the center ground is a grey scale mash up of those more clear of. Tipple's on either either end of the spectrum. I don't accept that characterization of the center ground. I think the values I hold are just as valid and strong, for example. I do not believe in lese, fair market solutions in all circumstances. I similarly do not believe in status ownership and control so answers in all circumstances. I believe in well-regulated Mark social market economy, which allows enterprise to thrive and helps us generate decent economy. So that the revenues we have pay for our public services and allows government to intervene on things like health and social care and education the basics that we all need to protect those most in need that isn't something that is has been talked about for a long time. And I think people have lost sight of that. But of course, it's it's a complicated thing sometimes to talk about that in a social media age wherein to itunes and sixty characters. Everybody wants to have. A black and white answer to every possible solution. You know, you've either got to be four something or against something and almost debate or nuance has been squeezed out of the body politic. And that is partly I think what hoping there will be a bit of a response to how do you respond to the criticism, which I know you've you've doubtless already heard and certainly going to here again, this is essentially a reanimation on attempt to reanimate the very very thing that the populist revolts from both sides of politics that we've seen were actually a response to. Yes and populism. I think is has is having its moment. I mean, you can see whether it's Trump in the states all happening in in Europe. And of course, it's fueled very much by this sugar, Russian the social media side. You can definitely whip up a lot of anger if you are a populist. But I think we now we've now coming to a point where that needs to be an antidote to populism insofar as I actually think if you build a populist appeal essentially on false promises that the solution to everybody's problem is something to do with stopping immigration, for instance, if you're coming from the right wing or that if everything is owned and controlled by an individual pulling levers in the treasury, then then everything will be fine that that those false promises will be found out. You know, one of the things I've worried about in the labor party has been the constant sort of tendency to go into making impossible promises, particularly on the on spending, which couldn't really be fulfilled and most people know in their hearts, they couldn't really be fulfilled without jeopardizing the economy, you know, everybody wants everything for free. But actually when you start asking, well d- mind, I ask how are you going to pay for it or where's the money coming from those difficult decisions have have been airbrushed out of the populist. Script and they don't want to have to confront some of those things. But as Trump is finding out in the states when it comes to fulfilling those promises that got him elected. He's now struggling with with when reality bites and similarly the populist movements are going to have to face that. And unless we have the confidence to call out. Snake oil salesman that actually they are peddling things that are not that are not realistic or achievable, then then the populace will continue to win if as seems likely for the next while anyway, the independent group is going to be thought of as what constitutes centrism in British politics. And I say that with all due respect to the Liberal Democrats how quickly and how practically I guess do you do you figure out how to stop? I think it's fair to say that right now, you'll see as being defined in terms of what you're not which is to say, you're not the hard left labor party. And you're not the cranky eurosceptic head bangers of the conservative party. How soon are you able do you think to start to finding yourselves in terms of what you are? Well, I hope from day one we've tried to have a positive and constructive set of values set out in on our website and on the put that we have from. Day one because it isn't just about what is wrong with the the main parties, it is very much about the values. We want to take forward now that isn't a full policy program or manifesto. We haven't even got the structures yet, we've got to have our inaugural meetings, and so forth and talk about you know, what roles people are going to do all of that is still to be to be discussed. But. You know, those positive values in the centre ground that echo as a microcosm of mainstream society. I believe we've had a good go at articulating those hope over the next few weeks and months people will look at that. And start to say, yeah, I understand where that's coming from. It is not about an ideological approach to understanding society or funding solutions it's about an evidence based approach to moving through public policy. Trying to take a longer term attitude to the way. Different challenges are addressed. But from a set of values that I think are certainly ones that I've always felt quite strongly about but people have to read them make their own judgment. And it's up to them. It's up to the public part of this is about also not. You know to to really push back at this notion that the party's own voters. Oh, this is a labor seat or this is a conservative area parties shouldn't own voters. They should earn votes from people. And I think we need a little bit more challenge to say stop being complacent. We want to try and earn votes by engaging with people and their interests and their attitudes. And hopefully, we'll try we'll try and do that. But it won't be a straight won't be a straight line. There will be ups and downs. If people are looking for disagreements between those of us who've come together, I'm sure they will be able to find them the nature of being an independent group is that we are going to take different stances between us, but I think we'll be able to tolerate those because in normal life people can tolerate different opinions. But somehow along the road, certainly within the labour party tolerance became forbidden. And you had to literally sign oaths of loyalty this past weekend to the great leader, and in a very intolerant environment, and that cultural changes of really really strong part of what we want to try and achieve that was Chris Leslie MP of the independent group.

Four award ceremonies would the Oscars even get nominated and do the definitions of what constitutes an Olympic sport need to be tightened. That's coming up on the Dory. House on local twenty four right now. And welcome to Madari house. My guest today are monocle twenty fours. Ben Ryland page Reynolds Augustine match Lori and from Toronto bureau Thomas Lewis, welcome all and we will start in Canada with what appears a significant besmirching of the hitherto apparently on besmirch -able image of prime minister Justin Trudeau, he is embattled if not yet outright beleaguered by a scandal, which has seen the resignation of Canada's minister of veterans affairs and former attorney general Jodie Wilson Ray bolt at issue is the allegation that people in the prime minister's office lint on Wilson Ray Baldwin. She was attorney general not to pursue criminal charges against Canadian engineering firm SNC loveline Trudeau as is traditional in such circumstances denies everything Thomas briskly, if you will what are the basics of what has happened here. As far as we understand it while this will begins last year when it's been alleged. That the then attorney general hearing Canada, Joe c Wilson Jodie Wilson raised Rabaul excuse me was apparently pressurized by a personnel at the prime minister's office to mental if you like into the legal proceedings being levied against Quebec based engineering group SNC Lebanon. This story is broken by the globe and mail newspaper coming up to about three weeks ago now, and it really has caused the biggest sort of political scandal. I think it's fair to say that Justin Trudeau has faced since he was elected back in twenty fifteen last week. Jesse Williamson re- rebelled who had been demoted in the eyes of many to the position of veteran affairs minister, she resigned, which meant that she was not now bound by lots of the conventions. If you are a cabinet minister of the things that you're allowed to talk about in terms of conversations you had with say, the prime minister or other. Cabinet colleagues, then this week that was another chapter of drama when the prime minister's longest serving on closest confidante Gerald butts. He is widely regarded as being the mastermind of Trudeau's election victory in two thousand fifteen he resigned amid this scandal. And now what we have is an inquiry that's opened with lots of senior personnel giving evidence about what they knew what they didn't know, and what the consequences and what the ramifications are constitutionally and legally about these allegations. So this really is a story that I think Justin Trudeau wanted to sort of cost quite quickly, but he's really failed in in doing. So Thomas Justice does face an election by October at the latest those this put a big noticeable dent in him as he prepares for that. I think it's does. And I think the timing couldn't really be worse. I think over the past eighteen months or two years or so you really seen Justin Trudeau sort of sheen. If you like here domestically waning on lots of different fronts. You've seen lots of contrivances about pipeline building, for example, which is very popular in conservative heartlands in the west of Canada. But is deeply unpopular with members of many first nations communities, for example, and those communities are really at the heart of Justin Trudeau's election campaign aware, he stated that he would work harder than any prime minister before effectively to bring reconciled re reconciliation tree reconciliation between Canada and its first nation first nations populations. You've also had things like the renegotiation of the NAFTA treaty that was seen as a bit of a triumph for Trudeau. But then you saw things like the G seven summit where he was attacked pretty publicly by Donald Trump. I think that sort of dented his view for some Canadians while other saw it as a bit of a triumph for Trudeau standing up to belligerent leader to the south of the border.

"Now, let me Vinnie will be Georgia's first female president after winning the country's election. But she faces more than a few challenges. Not least navigating the country's difficult relationship with Russia. Monaco's Andrew moolah spoke to just before her victory and asked what she thinks relationship between Georgia and Russia should look like I'm how to get that. It's based on the practice. I haven't the experience I have I had two different experiences. I had one when it was decided on the European side and was deeply involved in the negotiations of the can countries that were wanting to exceed you and the natual and where before the big bang and Mike change. There was that one has to full very steady line. Not stop in goes today steady slow and deter line to go to the end of that of that ruled the second experience when negotiating the Russian military. Days is was that I had devised and told Nagara when starting the negotiations that would inform before and after every well enough negotiation the head of the presidency of that time of the European Union and the American investigator and did those things each time. We had a new round up negotiations and sees how Georgia should behavioral. We kinda Ford to go alone in a data with Russia. One thing is that Russia is still occupying. The treats every treason makes today difficult to do as if nothing was happening and every other day Russia's changing, the okay tying line, two meters or more. And that is putting very heavy treasure on Georgia and Russia is continuing to do that. And sometimes abducting people on that line who do not really know where the line passes. So in those conditions to be talking about renewing any dialogue is not that realistic. But we have to be very close to our American and European friends and wisdom behind them sometimes together with them, see how much new Tricia can be Putin Russia and how much they can put pressure on Russia to try to go towards a solution on those issues when you talk about Georgia being close to its American European friends. How close are you talking though, do you think for example, that accession to NATO or even the e u realistic ambitions for Georgia, especially while Russian forces? In the country because that's what the Joel population has constantly wanted. And once we the very very t-. There is little change in that. Now, the other thing is the other side. I mean, of course, you have to be to to be able to achieve the results. And so much depends on what will be the you in the coming months and years, one important thing is what type of Brexit will be negotiated. I'll perspective is daddy clear and the medicines that we can do down that road do even before entering and when not waiting for the final adhesion Georgia who is today in the region here, the most McCray tick, the most European the most stable country can have much closer I sink relationships we both stations and since I've been working. From the inside. With both conditions knows them win can talk the same language. I'm sure I can get much more during that the road that we're following two lords the end result, which is a accession and that what is important today for the Georgian population is to get more to get closer to be more involved. And to feel that we are really already in some ways parts of fewer up and supported by our friends in NATO.

"An eye on the wall. You're back with Madari house with me. Andrew moolah still with me, Marcus hippie color to rebelo and Augustine matchel Ari and let's look now at France, the efforts of which to protect its language from sullying by foreign phrases have been marked and or derided for some decades by programs such as this in keeping with that tradition. We turn our attention to the latest haram finger of the commission for the enrichment of the French language, which is a real thing this time at the phrase fake news recently, beloved of assorted populist charlatans Selfo keleaf. It's a horrible acronym has suggested that instead French people say infamous fallacies or perhaps infants, which is a portmanteau of information and intoxication. I quite like infamous philosophers it. It sounds like a a failed new romantic band nineteen eighty-five Augusta. And first of all is it is it we kill Kilfoyle soul forever. They preferred to be called cold the commission for the enrichment of the French language when they're actually kind of all. About enforcing the opposite yet is weird and what's even weirder is the front seems to have at least two bodies dictating what kind of calm entered into the language. Indeed, I hope they get into massive arcane arguments. I really do. Can you imagine the pedants that must work. Speaking myself as someone who fancies himself as quite the humility pet. And these people are operating at a level that I, I can only dream of transcendental. That's exactly the word I, whatever the French quivalent of that is. It is strange. I was just laughing as you did your cue for that because of Asli England has no such problem with the adoption of foreign words into the language, which is why we're able to refer to enforce is a portmanteau indeed. So I'm glad you spotted that. I was hoping listeners would. On that point, though, color isn't this weed that France does this, that it is so resistant to its its language, evolving and coopting because Guston correctly points out one of the great strengths of English. One of the reasons that it has become romantically enough. The global lingua franca if you will, is that it has been so adept at sort of picking and choosing adopting an appropriating phrases from other languages. I think with friends is a depot what French is a deep deep question here. Obviously, I think there's still a lot of romantics around that. Like to look back to France, French has the business language of Europe which used to be at a certain point up until maybe the ATS. And that's then when English just to Cova and committees like this, try to protect the language in the sense that there's this weird fear that if they allow these foreign words to come into everyday language, that people will one day. Just to eventually stop talking French speaking French altogether. And you see that a lot when you try to, you know, even in Portugal up until the nineties French was the business language like foreign language, like all the important books that couldn't be translated into Portuguese, and we're not in French or English would be translated into French, and that's what would be the main language you'd learn at school because it was considered the way you speak in Europe in the continent. If you were going to do meetings and business, and that's is dramatically different nowadays. And I think the essence of this is to kind of keep it ahead way Marcus, what?.

And then they get ten years in jail and they, they flip on whoever the next highest one is or as high as you can go. It almost be outlawed. It's not fair. But what possible reason could Donald Trump have for being so deeply interested in this particular potential reform of the Justice system? My guest married to Jesse and Florence beat him, and we'll be discussing this and the day's other top stories, including the release of the UK government's best guesses of what a no deal Brexit might look like the meeting of the national security advisers of the United States and Russia, and they are for the moment, different people and possibly the worst judged politicians holiday in recent memory.

My guest today, I'm married to jetski columnist for the independent and the guardian and Florence Biedermann London bureau chief for Asians, froze. Press welcome, both.

We'll be able to recall advocates for Brexit soothingly, assuring that the process would be an easy agreeable ambled to sunlit our plans of prosperity and so forth. A couple of years under bit late. The UK government has begun publishing advice on the implications of Brexit occurring about seven months from now without a deal in place. The most optimistic summary would appear to be minor inconvenience for intangible reward. The most pessimistic self inflicted national emergency Mary. First of all, there's a lot of detail in these reports in these are these are not the first there is plenty more where this came from, basically, what have. We learned. What have we learned. Print to this. I mean, I found it completely unbelievable because some of this is what the government has been steadfastly refusing to make public for months. There was all the, it was the idea that this material existed that it was being worked on, but it wasn't published. Suddenly today we've got a whole string of papers of precautions that companies and others might be wise to take in the event of aid, no deal Brexit. And given that the government has been speaking for the law sort of two months. Every time somebody produces some some sort of warning like saying, oh, will the health service and GP's of busy stockpiling medicines for six months because the maybe disruption in supplies, government and the Brexit tiers of turned around and said, that is complete rubbish. That is the fear gender that just trying to tell people that that the that everybody is every. Body should fear Brexit in. This should be another second referendum. Now, what we see is that exactly that and a whole slew of other measures that look very similar to the supposed alarmism are actually put down in black and white as precautions that companies and people should be taking. There is some extraordinary detail in there. I, I was particularly struck by just stuff as minute as the fact that the UK will in the event of a no deal Brexit. Florence need to shoot new warning pictures to put on cigarette packets because the copyrights of all those pictures of diseased lungs are in fact owned by the EU come. If especially in the event of a no deal Brexit Brexit come March. Thirtieth next year. There's going to Britney suddenly going to be confronted with about twenty thousand things. It didn't even think about, isn't it? I mean, I think this love of detail is a bit suspicious to me. Why did you start cannot example on cigarette butts? Is it really one of the most important thing that would affect the life of the people? So I mean, these documents, yes are interesting to me are interesting because yet they have selected some topics using the list is much longer. Why did they choose this one?.

"Welcome to. Tonight's monocle daily with me. Andrew moolah it seems obvious enough that someone somewhere is to blame for yesterday's bridge. Collapse in Genoa in which thirty nine people now known to have died, major items of crucial infrastructure in modern countries should not simply fold down. However, the fact that investigations into the Morandi bridge disaster have barely begun has not dissuaded Italian politicians and officials from apportioning and or docking blame the prime minister Giuseppi Kante pledged, to revoke the contract of bridge operator order Strada Pella Talia, the management of which in turn refused Kohl's to resign. I'm joined now by the political journalist, Georgia Orlandi Georgia briefly of what have been today's principle political responses to this. Well, we've been hearing from the Mattel Salvini and some members of the populist governments saying and blaming Brussels austerity policies for what happened. Been full. The fact that way they believe the Brussels imposed some sort of constraints on the amount of money that easily could spend infrastructures, but we will so heard today. The response coming from the European Commission saying that it's up to Rome to decide the way that they want to spend their money. And the other thing that is quite interesting to note here is that autostrada which is a state owned privately funded company, of course, is organized in a way that's the state as very little control on the way money is spent over an infrastructures. So what we can say today's that, of course, it's really becoming beyond the political debate. Blaming game really about who is responsible for what happened to go back to the claim by Matteo Salvini the minister for the interior that this is in some way the fault of the. Given that we still don't actually went nowhere ne- and knowing what caused this catastrophe is that not being seen as kind of a cheap shot by Italians. Yes. Indeed, there has been a lot of criticism that goes in align with what has been said regarding the possible causes of this disaster police said, I sad that cloudbursts dead had been seen around the bridge when the collapse happened, but of course experts and now also protects initiative. Eli, Saudi authorities are saying that this cannot be this is not a just a ks, and this is not something that just happened because of some external factors. It's becoming clear and clearer through experts and engineers. They're speaking on the case that of course, although there has been some maintenance on the bridge, the causes are in fact linked to the fact that this bridge was supposed to be damaged many years ago into be reconstructed. Is there a concern. On the part of the government. And this, I guess, may explain that they face to apportion blame that. This might be one of those stories that can get away from them. Even though they are obviously a newly incoming government and that it would be a stretch to blame then for this, this could become one of those stories couldn't at which a kind of already irritable electorate starts to see is symbolic of a wide decline a bit. Like I guess the reasons bite of bus fires you've had in Rome, which have been interpreted very much in that fashion. Yes. Indeed, the government is a is in a very dangerous position day are trying now to play there. If you want to feel and try to make these appear as a way to show that they resent the government of change. And that's why they're trying to, of course, promise a several intervention and they're promising, for example, we've heard Konta. Yes, that is saying that they. They want to carry out checks over every infrastucture. Initially, these is becoming very, they're very on the edge in the sense that it could really if you want go out of control, they're trying to, as I said to use this as a way to build up their appeal. But of course, the risk is very high and they're risking their credibility here. This is far from being the first bridge collapse in Italy in recent years. There have been several others Mercifully none quite as large scale or as catastrophic as this one. Certainly in terms of loss of life, is there among Italians if you think back forty, eight hours before this disaster wasn't a general topic of national conversation. The the decaying state of Italian infrastructure. Yes. Indeed, these is being the object of many years of political debate in particular case of the Morandi bridge.
