"The world, Angela Merkel will receive her official farewell as Germany's Chancellor this evening, a position that she has held for the last 16 years. A special ceremony will take place in Berlin this evening where most of the Chancellor's choice of music will be performed by a military banner. Not most, but where three pieces of music will be performed by a military band. Now more than a few eyebrows have been raised after the Chancellor picked a track by Nina Hagen and Nina Hagen is also known as the grandmother of punk rock. Right, here goes.

balanced approach to tackling the spread this winter so the deputy prime minister Dominic rob over the weekend talking about holiday parties not needing to be canceled but people also should be cautious That seems to be the message Mandatory vaccines are not the right move for the UK though he was forceful in saying that one measured the government is enforcing pre departure coronavirus tests for all UK rivals Well joining me now to discuss this and more broadly the omicron variant is our Bloomberg editor Emma O'Brien who is leading our virus coverage for Asia Emma good morning The UK government call it balanced Is it Yeah well I think we're in a little bit of a wait and see moment with on The Crown right now So a little bit of caution and just watching as scientists really trying to code these things It's probably in order after that initial sort of rush when on the chrome burst onto the scene but that sequencing from Southern Africa We're now sort of waiting to see how those cases in South Africa in particular which has been very helpful and very open in sharing their experience This new variant it evoked The signs we're seeing thus far are cautiously quite optimistic It may be quite transmissible But it does appear to be quite mild thus far with the caveat that a lot of the people that we are seeing in it initially particularly in South Africa younger people Yeah we had more Moderna comments over the weekend and then today we also expect Sarah Gilbert who is the vaccine knowledge behind the Oxford AstraZeneca jab She's going to give a speech today too What more might we learn What more do we know in terms of the spread as you mentioned Would it be great to get a little bit more detail from her about what sort of changes if any will be required to the vaccines I mean it does seem to be a consensus that the vaccines may need to be updated to account for this new variant but to what extent they seem to be quite split Some of them not to concern about it thinking that they can get a slightly tweaked vaccine like Pfizer for example out pretty quickly Moderna sounding variously a little bit more pessimistic on that So any more information on what she's saying and how she views the response of this new mutation to the vaccines will be super helpful right now Yeah absolutely South Africa is saying that it's not seeing a surge in hospitalizations from oma corn And yet in Europe 17 countries have identified cases and we're battling this kind of fatigue around restrictions frankly and the need to get more Europeans to take the jab So how do you view the European response at the moment Yes I mean obviously behind those South Africans and watching to see how it is panning out there But they're very different places I mean you've got a very very high level of natural immunity in some cases in South Africa You are seeing it in a lot of younger people is the anecdotal evidence that is coming out So you know that does raise the risk that this response very differently in all the people or people who are unvaccinated So the European response by a sort of mix of some sort of travel curb which aren't really sort of

"I was in the army in the 80s, whether I chair subcommittee to look into really what was going wrong and why I recruitment targets were consistently being missed. What we didn't anticipate was what then came. We had four and a half, 24,200 pieces of evidence submitted about the lived experiences of women in the military with some harrowing stories ranging from rape bullying intimidation and harassment. And all the way down to more minor issues like how women felt undervalued in their role in the military. So we decided to look into that further and of course the MOD have responded today as you've mentioned. And as the only female member of parliament who served in the army, how shocked were you by these findings? I was shocked. I was a little disappointed that since I was in the army in the 80s, things hadn't really progressed. For example, women have been on the front line for many, many years now. And yet their equipment and their clothing that they are issued to do the work of the government to protect our country our design for men and our ill fitting and actually compromise operational effectiveness. So I was shocked at that level that things hadn't progressed. But what really impacted our myself was the issues around rape harassment and bullying and how that was quite endemic within the military today. So we're at a stage where the government has agreed with most of your recommendations and we are going to unpick what their response has been. But how has their response left you feeling? I'm actually quite delighted. They've certainly shown a commitment. They've acknowledged there is a problem. That is a big step for the military the MOD to make. They've acknowledged a problem. And they have made some serious commitments to the future of women in the military. They have certainly said a target of increasing recruitment to 30% by 2030. And this is all ringing good bells for me, mainly because we really need to show our service women that they are valued. And I think the response we've had this morning from the Secretary of State for defense Ben Wallace, it's quite a thorough response, and it certainly shows an ongoing commitment to our service women and veterans. Now, I said that the government agreed with most of your recommendations, a key recommendation that they haven't agreed with, though, is that allegations of rape and sexual assault should be heard in a civilian court. They say allegations like that should still be heard in a military court as that left you disappointed. Yes, I think disappointed is probably a good word. You know, murder manslaughter serious sexual assault and rape will continue to be heard primarily in the military court. However, on Monday, the armed forces bill will look at what they call concurrent jurisdiction, which gives scope for the service and public prosecutors to overrule this rule. So cases can in certain circumstances be heard in a civilian court. But this is something I'm going to watch very closely with interest and the defense select committee will be reviewing progress on these recommendations as we go forward. That's encouraging to hear and according to this report, the defense secretary Ben Wallace wants to see women as part of that court martial process. Does that make things any better? Yes, Ben Wallace has gone a one step further and has added extra recommendations..

Now she has been through an enormous amount and not without her controversies, politically. I know that's what this interview we're not talking about that in this interview. But she is about to step down. And I wonder how much she has changed. And if she's achieved her ambition not to be a half dead wreck. I think, you know, she is very smart. And she is the first one in Germany. I don't know in England, but at least in Germany who really stepped back by her free will. And mainly, people don't give up the power. Power is so seductive. And so, yeah, like, I would say like your dependent and power. And so it's her. I think that very special of Angela Merkel that she did it the first time. And so she has a Second Life, you know, no.

Social Democrats narrowly beat Angela Merkel's alliance in historic German election

"Social democrat. Party in germany narrowly won. Sunday's national election projected results showed and claimed a clear mandate to lead a government for the first time since two thousand five and to end sixteen years of conservative-led rule under angela. Merckel the left. Social democrats were untracked for twenty six percent of the vote ahead of twenty four and a half percent for merckel cd. Ucs you conservative bloc but both groups believed they could lead the next government with need major block. Commanding majority in both reluctance repeats their awkward grand coalition of the past. Four years. Most likely outcome is a three way. Alliance led by either the social democrats or merkel's conservatives agreeing new coalition could take months and will likely involve the smaller greens and liberal free democrats. We are ahead in all the surveys. Now the social democrats chancellor candidate olaf scholz said in a round table discussion with other candidates after the vote. The spd's rise heralds a swing left for germany and marks a remarkable comeback for the party which has recovered some ten points in support in just three months to improve on its twenty and a half percent results in the 2017. National election schultz his conservative rival on in lash. It signaled his blog was not ready yet to concede though his supporters was subdued. It hasn't always been the first place party that provided the chancellor lash told the roundtable i want to government where every partner is involved where everyone is visible not one where only the chancellor gets to shine. He said in an early attempts to woo. Smaller parties attention will now shifts to informal discussions followed by more formal coalition negotiations. Which could take months leaving.

"The candidate from the party Because some way they must have thought we can't win this race if we focus solely on the party and the candidates just sort of the lead person so they really switch the logic there And I guess they were also helped out by the fact that I'm in lash it just seemed to have a fairly inept campaign as well He made quite a few mistakes And the social media jumped on this of course But I must say that this was maybe something that was new in this campaign as well That also the green candidate female woman in her early 40s She was really very badly treated on the social media and this all led to a tone in the German debate which I hadn't seen that way before and there were serious discussions about whether people are going too far where the limits are So suddenly we were discussing political culture campaigning the role of social media in a way that Germany hasn't discussed Although I mean it's still looking from outside it seemed so much more polite than one is normally used to A big question How much does this election matter I mean how much do you think Germany really could change potentially with an unwieldy three way governing coalition Germany has to change quite a lot And while many media conferences outlets are celebrating Angela Merkel for her 16 years in office Tibetan continuity at this point and to say okay let's just redo it with another candidate This won't work at all It won't work internally and a word work externally Internally I think the COVID-19 crisis was kind of revelatory because citizens felt and children fell to what extent digital infrastructure isn't in place So schools are not online There was no way and many many places in Germany to have them taught digitally We saw that public transport is really in many places in a bad shape And it's not only it's not only digital it's really also brick and mortar bridges break down in Germany No one talks about that but we are under invested or we have under invested in that has to change And daniela you mentioned Germany abroad will get on to that in the second half of our special election edition of news out from Berlin That's coming up shortly.

"She's faced many significant and immediate challenges during his sixteen years as chancellor. But what about germany's future has merckel ever expressed a longer term vision of what the country might be. I think this vision is is quite interesting. I think it was helmet schmidt former german chancellor who said something like those who have vision should be seen by a doctor. I think the idea of having a vision in germany is because of its history. It's seen as something. That's quite frowned upon at the same time. Yes you would hope and you would think that this woman who has been in power for that long would been considering where she wants germany tomorrow. The big the big question that everybody is obsessing with right now is of course the climate crisis germany has this commitment to become greenhouse gas neutral by two thousand and forty five so it is how you can have that goal and you can also take business with and also speed up some of the decision making. There's this great feeling in germany. That that the obsession with detail. A huge overblown bureaucracy takes a huge amount of time to get very simple things done and if somebody has a vision it's how you can speak those things up how you can make germany more efficient. Bring it more into the twenty first century. The big joke has been the dominance of the fax machine. The fax machine has been the main thing at the beginning of the pandemic health authorities. We're using to get the information no way from one place to another often quite interesting arguing that it's better for data protection than sending an email at these days. But you know the question is why under sixteen years of medical things like that have not improved. They're a huge problems with internet. In rural areas does feel that this country this big off in the middle of europe. It should be further on with a lot of these questions and actually is given all of that. What does the public makeover like. How strong is her reputation within germany. i think at a time when she is just about to leave office. There's a lot of affection for her. That maybe wasn't there before. There's also a lot of animosity and a feeling that merkel has caused the country to go to sleep but when you have an a female character do that plays a role who has been in this position of the decision maker. The person who has pulled the chairs together who has had a hotline to vladimir putin. This person that gets things down there is a real i think among some people even a fear of life after markle and how anybody can possibly step into her shoes.

"K connolly your the guardian and the observers berlin correspondent mccullers is the longest running national leader. She's been chancellor for a whopping sixteen years. What is the secret to her success. Yes so it is quite amazing. She will have been one of the longest serving german leaders as well. And i've had it said in recent days people have been analyzing this very question is she doesn't get offended very easily. So she's not been set back by criticism towards her which there's been a lot over the years. She's managed to take large swathes of the german electric. Who weren't voting for the cd you before and moved conservative party. Not just to the center. Some would say even sort of almost to the left success is down to a consensus building attitude that she's had this centrist attitude. So you get the impression of this woman quite a shy woman who is slowly made her way up on the back of being somebody who really does her homework and also quite an unassuming character. I think somebody who maybe was. Always underestimate hit. Monday's announcement represented an important personal victory for angela merkel. Who will become germany's first woman. Chancellor and the first chancellor from the new eastern states essence. I feel good. My if we take a step back. Can you tell us what did she inherit when she actually did become chancellor in two thousand five. Well we just had the era of. Gerhard schroeder was a very interesting era. He added the social democrats in a coalition with the green party. Reform puts us and the major thing that he did when he was in. Power was a series of reforms that cut back drastically on germany's generous welfare benefits very controversial still haunts the social democrats to this day in and it led to thousands of people protesting in the streets as blink finished i in an audit spots and it was that led her schroeder losing support and when michael came into government then she inherited a country that was very divided by war happened and germany hadn't had a female leader before and i think it was a lot more of a conservative place than it actually is now. It was not a place where it was obvious for there to be a female leader but she was often also described as a reluctant feminist. Why do you think she shies away from the identity. And what did she actually do practically to advance gender equality in germany. Yeah interesting i mean. The policy reform that she bought in the has enabled women for example to receive more than sixty percent of your pay while you're on maternity leave and that was also able to be split between males and females so it has encouraged more men to take that time has enabled women to go back into the workplace earlier if they so wished so that i think is possibly in my mind own experience of having benefited from it. One of her most feminists active policy-making but she's always been very reluctant to be drawn on that feminists question. There's a quite nice quotation from michael herself and she says i have the impression the fact that i'm a woman plays a big role for a lot of people but for myself it doesn't play much of a role because i only know myself as a woman. That's very mac less quay of looking at it. So i now have to ask. How would you supper approach. What defines political leadership. So i'd say yes the pragmatism down to earth nece. She has things in her head. She's able to pull out in that moment year. For fleekerman on minsk. Let's and the fact that she could talk about the minsk agreement without notes. She has an ability to not get flummoxed and quite often not said to be down to this science background that she has tried to tried to tackle a lot of the political challenges. She's had of as if they were scientific question. That definitely has an answer to it was just thinking that for us i mean she stands out on the world stage because she is so unshowy and she doesn't buy into the trappings that her position could afford. Know there's no luxury cars houses. She's seen to your own supermarket shopping and enjoys low key walking holiday. How much does not define her political brand. What is mercantilism. I didn't she's done that deliberately. Is that this is a woman who i could never get this image out of my mind. When she left her first husband bearing in mind it was during the ddr. She took the washing machine with her. And i think one of the interesting things about macc lives that she wasn't necessarily taken that seriously at home until she started shining on the international stage and for me some of the defining moments have been how she has dealt with a room full of world leaders who can't agree on something and she's literally sort of pulled the chance together so that these people will sit down and talk doesn't want ego to get in the way she's had an interesting relationship with the world leaders there's bush walking over to hella mirko. He's reaching in he's about to grab her he's rubbing her neck she's grimacing. That is the chancellor of germany. Disengaging yourself from the president of the united states.

Couple had set out to shoot politicians throughout their careers to record. How high office changed them. Physically she never gave them any direction on how to pose but simply placed them in front of a white background and the first picture. She was a little bit looking up to the camera. I remember that she was a bit awkward and shy. But even so she was inexperienced. I was impressed by her style. Her energy geology had power and linda was the first photograph merkel's trademark hand gesture in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. She showed the first time. The famous merkel diamond. Wow yeah she never did it before in public. It was really the first picture. And i realized why she did it. And you know if you keep your together outta medically your shoulders us get up and you can stand for a long time and listening may be boring speeches. Here look very attentive because your body never get too relaxed to try and get right now. I already feel more tired out. And in recent weeks the pair map for their final photo shoot. Of course she changed if chancellor for sixteen years now in the last year she got more static and glow in her eyes liveliness in the is disappeared but she kept her personality and she always had her ego in check normally politician tied to control their images.

"Governor larry hogan the chaotic and heartbreaking scenes out of afghanistan over the last several days with innocent civilians running for their lives in fear of the taliban is the result of a rush and irresponsible withdrawal many of these afghan citizens. Our allies bravely risked their lives to provide invaluable support for many years to our efforts as interpreters and support staff and we have a moral obligation to help them for their service. These allies their immediate families are eligible to receive special immigrant visas to the united states. And we stand ready and willing to do even more. It's the least we can do. Special immigrant visas. Look they're so wonderful then. Go let angela merkel get blessed by these people. We already have simultaneous immigration crises. Happening right now you know that we just had another two million people anywhere between one point. Six to two million people come illegally into the southern border. And what is governor. Larry hogan worried about not serving. His fellow countrymen not literacy rates of black americans in baltimore not the problems of crime and now we stand ready for another twenty thousand people that don't speak our language. Interpreters they do speak your language but not all of them do. I'm sure some of their kids might not. The question is why are leaders. Not putting the american people i.

I was george w bush and obviously biden was vice president during the in the obama administration. So they go back away and they know each other. The relationship between the two. I'm told is cordial and i think the relationship between the two administrations is cordial again. There was a turbulent period.

Ever since the second world war what's at stake for both germany and the us what do biden and miracle hope to achieve at this meeting and beyond what essentially i mean i.

They will be discussing the cyber threats to both countries. They will be discussing also importantly the efforts to reestablish some sort of an arrangement with iran. so there's a lot of things in common and then of course on several key issues. They are quite far apart in terms of strategic interests. So talk about the major sticking points on what issues do the two sides differ. I think perhaps from the us perspective the biggest and the most profound issue of difference is is the relationship to china you see. Germany is a europe's largest economy. Which is entirely reliant on exports and a large chunk of those experts. Go to china. So germany wants to have a close seamless and productive relationship with with beijing because it's dependent on those experts for a lot of its growth. That's obviously not the case. We the united states. The united states sees china increasingly as a systemic rival that needs to be contained the other kind sticking point and this is a longstanding sticking point of flashpoint even in the relationship is is the relationship to to russia and in particular russian exports of energy to europe and germany germany and russia will complete a vast submarine pipeline for natural law. School norstrom too and this. This pipeline is due to be completed. I think in august and it will double the amount of russian goss experts to germany directly. Ever since the obama administration the united states have tried to convince germany to to stop that project not to go forward with it.

Now the question is will will germany. Make some concessions in return to that goodwill gesture by prison biden into having done so far boy on what are the long term prospects for this crucial alliance might transatlantic drift continue or. Could we see a bridging of differences. I think with the current administration. There's a lot of goodwill on both sides and some of the differences will be papered out. I mean they probably. There are two fundamental to be bridged for example the relationship with china that that's very profound difference in interests. But you know. I think the relationship will return to serve. When there is a disagreement it will be a kind of a mutual disagreement between partners. And i think that's very important. Dominion diplomacy tone matters lot perceptions matter lot so we're we're going back to that pre trump era where where where relationship was cordial but however i mean there's a lot of skepticism in berlin em- paris everywhere in europe about whether the biden administration is as a temporary kind of setup whether americans will not yet again elect a destructive administration the next term the term after that and then they're back to square one where they were with the trump administration.

We're seeing, you know, Firms upon firms beginning to lay more people off on my worry is that we see a large rise in unemployment before we see the double its recovery if you will, so there's a kind of short term short to medium term problem of rising unemployment. And then I think you have the challenge of know how do you get unemployment back down, And how do you get people trained and able to move to the jobs which are going to happen in the areas that are growing, and that's where you need the ability to help have public policy to help people from kind of declining sectors to growing sectors.

"Cats. Tony cat today. So good to be with the eight three three got Tony eight three three four six eight eight six six nine. Now Pence the vice president. Certainly he had himself. What can only be described as a? Rough time with the people. The people not happy with them. Angela Merkel not happy with him. Because they all want to figure out ways to further the Iran nuclear deal, and they're very upset with the United States forgetting out of the Iran nuclear deal. As the AP described it the vice president unimpressed. With Angela Merkel. And went to town on criticism of Europe. But could be when you're criticizing Europe, and your Munich, you might not get much love from the Germans. They are not a very loving people. Maybe they are. I mean, I can't say that just stereotypically stereotypically. It would be very cold. You know, I don't know. I don't I don't watch as as much German porn is you do. So maybe I'm missing out on on what the love is actually lucky. But the vice president was I think correct? As you have conversations from Angela Merkel, the chancellor saying that there's worry about Iranian efforts to increase power in the region getting out of the Iran. Nuclear deal is very depressing because we need international diplomacy saying I see the ballistic missile program. I see Iran in Yemen and above all is the Iran in Syria. The only question that stands between us on the issue is do we help our common cause are combination of containing the damaging or difficult development with Veran by withdrawing from the one remaining agreements or does it help by keep more by keeping the small anchor? We have in order to maybe to exert pressure in other areas, you just said that they're in Syria. You just said that Iran is in Yemen. You just said there engaging ballistic missile program. Exactly what pressure. Chancellor merkel. Do you think that you're going to exert its a question? I would ask her if I've I was there. The people very focused on these two moments involving the vice president's this being the first. Forty fifth president of the United States of America, President Donald Trump. Last saugus..

"Gland of limited opportunity for me feel old time that's impossible to reach. Moa the wall. Bob, wyans, she and the order to shoot. At those who tried to leave limited my access to the fiend. If one had to rely on films and books some of which were smuggled relatives from the west to gain an impression of the United States during the speech to congress. She talked about something she talks about quite a bit a certain passion in. What did I see? What did I read? What was it? That was passionate about. Was passionate about the American dream the possibility for each and everyone to be successful to actually make it in life to one's own personal effort. Like many other teenagers. I was passionate about jeans particular brand, you could not get in the. Manage stop which my arms behind -ly break into these send to me from the west albums because I was passionate about the American landscapes that seemed to breathe the very spirit of freedom and independence and in the one thousand nine hundred my husband, and I flew to America for the first time to California. She'll never forget, I glimpse of he Pacific Ocean. It was simply gorgeous. What other of this even though for me America seemed completely Anthony until nineteen thousand nine then on the ninth of November nineteen Eighty-nine the building new fell and this border, which divided a nation for decades, keeping people in two different ones was now opening and this is why for me today is first and foremost time to say thank you during the speech having watched. Now a few times in two thousand eighteen and again now in twenty nine thousand nine it's hard not to see Merckel as something other than a very smart, very humble world leader and like any world leader. She has a certain confidence Chancellor Angela Merkel reminds me of a young meek mill in a rap battle meek is quiet and subdued when another rapper goes at him. Meek stands and takes it. But when it's Meeks turn, you know, he will unleash thunder as biographer stuff, Cornelius. Said about Merckel not meek mill. She is most dangerous when she is perfectly. Calm when she is quiet Thurs an outburst waiting just around the corner. Merckel never shouts. She just gets sarcastic. And she then strikes. It's what I think of when I think of a scientist. At least my third grade, Andrew STAN way of thinking, the scientists is busy at the lab quietly working late into the night mixing different chemicals. And then boom, a burst of flame tangible result or something in between maybe nothing at all. But hopefully you develop a worthwhile theory. And as I write this, I'm reminded. She is a scientist. She has a doctorate in science Merckel likes cerebral thinkers, she likes intellectuals, it's likely why she took to the professor turned President, Barack Obama wrote her biographer Merckel values, well educated people who stimulate her mind. The Obama and Chancellor Merkel's friendship has been well documented, although it did take some time, and there were certainly bumps throughout in two thousand eleven long before talks of a wall and America sprung up via the current president President Obama gave Markle the presidential medal of freedom during her medal of freedom ceremony. Merckel said againing for freedom. Cannot be contained by wolves for long. It was this year ending that brought down the uncut and that divided Dominy and Europe and indeed the world into two blocks America's resolutely on the side of freedom. It is to this. Resolve that we Germans the unity of our country in peace and freedom chancellor Merckel added. We see that living in freedom and defending feed him on two sides of one of the same coin for the precious gift of freedom doesn't come naturally, but has to be fought full, not shed. And defended time and time again, sometimes this may seem like an endless fight against windmills. But you see my personal experience is quite different one. What we Dan not dream of today may well become reality tomorrow. The thing about Markle is she seemed to always be predicting a problem President Obama hadn't even completed his first year in office when she gave that two thousand nine address to congress. It is up to us to convince people that globalization is be great global opportunity each and every continent would forces all of us to what together with others..
