"You're listening to the globalist first broadcast on the 26th of September 2022 on monocle 24, the globalist in association with UPS. Hello, this is the globalist broadcasting to you live from Midori house in London. I'm Georgina Godwin. Coming up on today's program, we'll have the very latest on Russia's attempts to unex swathes of eastern Ukraine. Also ahead, Monaco 24s Fernando Augusta Pacheco will be examining what the outcome of Brazil's election might do for the country's soft power. It is undeniable that the erratic president has been affecting the country's image with his fiery speeches that at times put democracy in question. Plus, an update on Italy's national vote, the week's aviation news and Robert bound looks back on the remarkable life of the novelist, Hilary mantel. That's all I had here on the globalist live from London. Let's begin the program with the latest from Ukraine, Ilya pono marenco is a defense reporter with the key independent and joins me on the line now. Ilya good to speak to you again. President Vladimir zelensky's office released a recording of an interview with a French media outlet this weekend saying he's in shock at Israel's failure to give Kyiv anti missile systems to help counter Russian attacks. Why do you think Israel is so reluctant to help? Well, it's generally been in line with what Israel has been doing for years and in terms of this Russian Ukrainian war because Israel prefers to say it's on its own, partly because of the extensive Russian speaking community in the country. But also it also tries to get something for itself out of this balance of power and the involvement of Prussians versus Syria. So they sometimes try to balance between those things. But over the last few months, I would say that we see that Israel community Israeli society leads towards DNA Ukrainian sympathies. So that's why we have this rumors that are not confirmed, saying that, for instance, unofficially, Israel is about to start providing Ukraine whether anti drone equipment. For this kind. And deciding zelensky itself is very popular as the Jewish Jewish leader, the most influential Jew. Of this year. So it's about very complicated history and very complicated politics inside Israel, but hopefully we will see balance leading towards the crane. Can you tell us that the latest military developments over the weekend on the ground in Ukraine? So what we're seeing is indeed the Ukrainian military continue over their attacks in eastern Ukraine, gaining ground slowly, but steadily rendering pressure upon very important points of Russian presence of infrastructure or being new defensive lines that they had to establish following the defeat in the kharkiv oblast. At the same time, this mobilization this wild mobilization effort tells us that probably the Russian positions in eastern Ukraine in terms of the lack of manpower, the lack of firepower, lack of force to cover the whole of the 1000 kilometers frontline. Might be more even more complicated that we expected that they need more manpower and people so dearly. So we expect in the coming weeks, we expect more Ukrainian successes because we are definitely seeing that Ukrainian military small, slowly moving towards that. Most likely that's about the northern parts of the Luhansk gobles, such as the cities of Le Mans and so out of it. So it's a slow, slow war of reconquest of the Ukrainian territory. I wonder what happens there because we know that the Russian referenda in the four occupied territories ends today. If kharkiv's zapper is a Luhansk and donesk are annexed by Russia. According to Moscow, this then gives the Kremlin the green light to protect what it says will be Russian territory.

"Announced today that they will be deepening defense cooperation. New Delhi has invited investment by Japanese industries, and both countries are planning a joint military drill involving their air force fighters. Sergeant gohel is a visiting teacher at the London school of economics and political science and an expert on Asian defense policy. Sergeant many thanks for joining us on the briefing. Now, Japan and India along with Australia and the United States are members of the quad group of nations. So they already take part in annual naval exercises across the indo Pacific. Why the need for a separate agreement then between the two. Well, this is a sign of increased momentum on a bilateral level between Japan and India. And it's quite important what's happening with what's known as this two plus two ministerial meeting between the foreign ministers and defense ministers of both countries. This is something that India does with a Fiona select few other nations which includes the United States, Australia, and now Japan, which means that India has decided to commit fully to the quad relationship that you had identified in for Japan. What's also significant is that prime minister fumio kishida has promised a substantial defense spending increase, which is unprecedented for Japan, especially with their World War II history. So you're looking at both countries moving now in a much more assertive defense posture. And beyond quote, how much cooperation has there been historically between India and Japan? Well, on an economic level on an investment level, there has been that cooperation, but defense is now the new dynamic where both countries are enhancing that relationship. And it's expected that the meetings are going to focus on jointly developing various military platforms as well as enhancing cybersecurity efforts because both countries face greater threats from the virtual realm as well. So this is something very important. And the other dynamic is both countries are now focusing on their commitment to a free open rules based indo Pacific region, which is what the U.S. and Australia have been advocating. So you're looking at this alignment now or synchronizing and this is perhaps one of the most final developments in that synchronization. And is China a common threat to both? Well, certainly both countries have been careful to specifically designate China as a threat, but it's very clear that the relationship between Japan and India, as well as Australia and the United States is very much focused on China. You can't avoid that. India, in many ways, was the most reluctant member of the quad until the skirmish took place in the galvan valley in the Himalayas in 2020 where you actually had Indian soldiers in hand to hand combat with their Chinese counterparts. And Japan itself is becoming more and more concerned about China's posture in the Asia Pacific region. And especially with what's happening with the neighboring neighboring island of Taiwan. So what's taking place now is this new development and it's very much focused on what they see as China's assertiveness in the Asia Pacific or indo Pacific region, however you want to describe it. I wonder where Russia fits because New Delhi and Moscow are old allies, India's consistently refused to condemn Moscow's invasion of Ukraine. In fact, Modi has said that his country is keen to strengthen its partnership with Russia. How does this sit with Japan? Obviously, a vociferous critic of Russia's actions over Ukraine. Well, it seems that the coordinations of Japan, the United States and Australia. They've had to accept to some degree India's bilateral relationship with Russia. And this is where it will get interesting as time unfolds because India and many ways is synchronized in sync on message with the other quad nations when it comes to China, the difference being, of course, Russia itself. India hasn't necessarily condemned Russia's actions, but they haven't supported them either in just try to stay a neutral in many ways because it does have good relations with Ukraine as well and has been providing humanitarian support. But the Russia angle could always be that sticking point in the relationship with the quad. But India's view is that this is separate to the dynamic with China. And when we look at the actual sort of defense plans to work together, what does that mean practically? Well, a lot of it is in terms of enhancing the military's cooperation. So navy, air force, army, and then also other seabourn exercises. So you're looking at an increase in number of naval exercises. There are military drills that are likely to take place between India and Japan, which is again unprecedented, which is also concerned China who have already protested about this. So you're looking at the militaries of various countries actually working side by side doing training, doing exercises. And this is perhaps designed to in the future should tensions ratchet up should they actually be some type of conflict that these countries in the quad grouping are perhaps a more mobile and agile in dealing with potential threats. Now, as we said at the top new jellies invited investment by Japanese industries, what sort of investment are they looking for? Well, one thing that India is keen on doing is enhancing its own defense military equipment. And it is looking for support from not just Japan, but the United States as well. And in many ways, Japan, Australia and the U.S. are keen for that as well because India has been very much dependent on Russian military equipment and the other coordinations are very keen to wean India away from that. But that takes time. That's not a process that can be done overnight. But it's interesting that the steps are being made. And the court is certainly very keen to have India more focused on defense equipment that is Australian Japanese or American based as opposed to Russian and it seems India is also going down that path because of greater reliability of the defense equipment from countries like the United States. And finally, is this an equitable relationship? Does India get more out of it than Japan? Well, I think it's a question of how much do both countries ultimately get from this bilateral relationship and it's one that they seem to be very keen on enhancing. As you can see with the seniority of the ministries that are meeting for the two plus two, the fact that they're going to be military exercises. And it's a ramping up of strategic ties in the backdrop of global geopolitical turmoil, especially in the indo Pacific region. So Japan, it's worth remembering the quad was very much the architect of the former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe who was very tragically brutally murdered recently. India is now a full member of it and it's actually leading it in many ways. So you're looking at the evolution of the quad. And it's not just a group anymore. It's almost becoming a physical entity. Thank you very much indeed. That was sad and go home and you're listening to the briefing on monocle 24. And finally on the program, it's time for the global countdown. I'll Fernando Augusta Pacheco joins us from Brazil, where he's covering

"They're expected to be very busy and all media have also been briefed from how to speak to survivors in an appropriate manner to ensure that these survivors aren't re traumatized when being interviewed during their visits over the next couple of days. So he's an Edmonton, which is where you are. What activities does Pope Francis have planned for today? Well, today in just a few hours, he'll be meeting with survivors near the site of the former residential school and Musk with cheese, which is about an hour south of Edmonton. And it's there where he's expected to pray to cemetery and then apologize. This is the only former residential school site that he'll be visiting during his 6 day papal trip to Canada. Here in Alberta, there were more residential schools in any other part of the country so that is very significant. And then in the afternoon, he'll be visiting the sacred heart church of the first people, which was rebuilt after it suffered some serious smoke damage from an indigenous smudging ceremony a few years ago. Now the Pope, I think, actually arrived yesterday. How was he greeted? Well, he was greeted at the airport by Justin Trudeau prime minister Justin Trudeau, as you mentioned, and the governor general of Canada, the first indigenous governor general Mary may Simon's along with several survivors. He did kiss the hand of a residential school survivor as he was greeted at the airport, and that kind of set the tone for the next 6 days as this is a pilgrimage of penance and that he will be looking at apologize. But of course, this visit will be very challenging for the Pope who is well into his 80s. He is pretty serious mobility issues and he isn't in the best shape. So Pope Francis, when he did exit the plane at the airport, he exited it with the help of an ambulance. And he is going to be getting around mostly by a wheelchair because he has sciatica and strained ligaments in his knee, which is forced him to wheelchair. So less mobility, but despite these mobility issues, it was still so important for him to come and he kept with the schedule to come to Canada for this visit, although he had canceled a visit to several countries in Africa, but he just really definitely is coming to make this apology right now. And beyond the people that he's apologizing to, I wonder how he's being received there. I mean, does Canada have a large Catholic population? Are there huge crowds out to greet him? Well, in here in Edmonton, 60 3000 people are expected to be attending the mass at Commonwealth stadium with another 8000 people viewing in an overflow stadium nearby. Of course there are certain communities that live here in Edmonton, namely the Filipino community who are devout Catholics. So he will be getting quite a few communities coming out to certain parts during his visit. Namely, especially in Quebec as well, he is going to Quebec City after he's done here in Edmonton and then moving on to Callaway. So outside of the indigenous communities, there will be certainly people here to come and see the Pope. But the main tone and the main purpose of the trip is definitely for that papal apology for the atrocities that were committed at these Catholic run residential schools to some indigenous communities. That was Monaco's Sheena rosita in Edmonton. You're listening to the briefing on monocle 24. And finally, on today's program, we're going to get a roundup of the day's papers with monocle 24 senior correspondent Fernando Augusta Pacheco. Welcome fei. Thank you very much and your gene. First of all, I think I have to tell you my newspaper review be a little bit different because we have some breaking news, right? We do have some breaking news. Should we save it for the end? Let's save it for the end. Perhaps. Let's just start with two kind of stories from Brazil, which I find it quite interesting. The first one is from poder 360, which is a very important political website in Brazil. There's a story here, is that Portugal's president is set to approve a law that will relax visas took members of the Sepp, which is the community of Portuguese language countries, which is a very interesting move from Portugal, because you see Europe is making harder and harder to move to Europe. They have draconian, anti immigrant laws. I think Portugal is doing the opposite. So if you are from the country like Brazil or Angola or Mozambique, you'll be a little bit easier and less bureaucratic if you want to apply to work and live in Portugal. So that's quite interesting. I'm sure the president will approve that. He's a very kind of liberal guy. He already spoke in favor of immigration. And personally, I find it a great news as well. It just shows the increase in exchange between loser phone countries in our July August issue. There was a great story about how Lisbon is becoming a Mecca for recording acts as well from luza phone countries. So I love that. It's a great story and I have to say Brazilians are the biggest foreign community in Portugal. This number is just set to become even bigger now. And there's a lot of flights and a lot of travel between Brazil and Argentina at the moment. What's behind that? Well, both countries have always been very closely connected. Argentinians love to spend holidays in Brazil and vice versa. But now something is changing as well. First of all Argentina became a quite a cheap destination for Brazilians because the Argentinian peso is not worth quite a lot these days, but it did increase tourism from Brazil to Argentina and I think airlines took notice. So by the end of the year they are being increased of 32% in the number of flights. Not only from aerolineas Argentina but also some Brazilian airlines like go and they're not only coming from the big cities like Rio or São Paulo, but also from the north of Brazil, his safety. So there'll be more even more connections. Of course, it's not just because Argentina is cheaper, it's great as well. We're talking here about integration. We just mentioned the loser phone community. I think it's also very good for South America to have better kind of airline connections, which sometimes it is missing, but between Brazil and Argentina definitely not, especially.

And I hold this song cause I wanted to release life and only when I had the chance to be back on stage where I believed at that point that I was really going to be ready to sing a song called feliz a LEGO fortune happy joyful and strong and I feel much more happy joyful and strong now than when you're ago.

"Of course we can see that the conflict in Ukraine is having economic consequences across the world. But one particular Chinese tycoon is feeling it to pretty sharply. Yes, absolutely. We saw this incredible super spike event in nickel futures this week up by 250%. It's the biggest rise we've ever seen and essentially what happened was sort of a rising prices as a result of the Russia, the Russia and Ukraine conflict. We saw this sort of mass closing out of positions and particularly this one Chinese type nickel tycoon who closed out his positions. He has exposure to something like a 100,000 tons of nickel, could it even be larger? And something like 2 billion $200 million of daily losses there. So it is really a sort of extraordinary event and lots of questions about whether or not this could be similar to the arcas incident, which of course forced the liquidation of Bill hwang's firm. It looks so far. It's been relatively contained, but certainly China is asking some of its banks. Some of its financial and t-shirts to review its exposure to lots of these sort of derivative and commodity products. Absolutely. And the FT has a big piece on this exposure and the market turmoil that the war and the subsequent sanctions of unleashed. Absolutely, I think that the story doesn't excellent job of really showing the extent to which China is in this very, very difficult position. Of course, it's signed it's no limit partnership earlier. This year. But now, of course, there are these extraordinary reputation on economic costs to the conflict. It's under enormous amount of pressure because China of course is a huge the biggest importer of oil around the world. But also has this issue of food security, so it is a massive importer of food and agricultural commodities as to. And these concerns about food shortages and security and food security issues has really overshadowed the MPC conferences which should be going on this week in China and typically these are the theosis of all of China's successes, but instead focus very much on all of these risks and of course include this lower economic target 5.5%, which is the lowest that we've seen in about 30 years. So we really are sort of seeing Xi Jinping and Beijing sort of struggling to weigh up these two different challenges. And of course, it doesn't just stop with Mainland China. The territories are affected too, bankers are abandoning Hong Kong. Yes, I think in Hong Kong, what we're really seeing sort of after 25 years of Beijing rule protest, the erosion of civil liberties and now of course the pandemic, which has been heavily criticized for its management, really taking a toll on the city sort of collective psyche, we seeing these sort of exodus of folks across all sorts of like walks of life in Hong Kong, but among those bankers, Citigroup, JPMorgan, and Wells Fargo in particular, all seeing some departures recently and about a half of banks and asset managers are considering moving their employees out Hong Kong. I think there has been this extraordinary whiplash in Hong Kong because of the sort of policies and trying to respond to the pandemic. Just earlier this year, we had about ten cases a day. And now we're seeing something like 60,050 thousand cases. And the pandemic responses in some ways sort of the apotheosis of this feeling of powerlessness that many Hong Kong have felt. You know, hospitals are overwhelmed. There is mass compulsory testing, these very bleak quarantine camp situations. And it really is sort of weighing, I think, on its residents. And finally, a very quick look at Europe trying to ditch Russian oil and gas. Yes, a really extraordinary story. I mean, of course, one thing that the Russian Ukrainian conflict has highlighted is the extraordinary weaponization of the modern financial system, and it is really exposed some of the cracks of the net zero targets that many Western countries have set, of course, this desire to move away from coal gas oil imports from Russia has added to pressure for these countries to accelerate the energy transition, particularly in Europe as energy prices are through the roof. And that has exposed that some of these countries in Europe are not particularly prepared, actually, to move to alternative sources of energy, we may likely see the uptick in sort of non Russian use of fossil fuels in the meantime, though of course there will be sort of this move into solar wind nuclear that type of thing. But we spend in Europe we spend about 1 billion a day on importing coal gas and oil from Russia. So it is an extraordinary shift that European countries will have to engineer over the next month or two months. Rebecca, thank you very much indeed. That was Bloomberg's Rebecca Chung Wilkins. And you're with the globalist on monocle 24. Now, Ukrainian singer jamala won the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, with a powerful and haunting ballad called 1944. The personal song spoke about the deportation of Crimean Tatars in Ukraine in 1944, including her own great grandmother. The singer had to flee the country and is now in Istanbul. She's also delivered an emotional performance of 1944 at the German national finals for Eurovision this week. She's been speaking to Monaco's Fernando Augusta Pacheco. In my sister's house, but I can say that I'm in safe place because in this time my husband in Ukraine, my husband's father in Ukraine, all my tea when you crane, oh my musical band in Ukraine. And that's why I'm not feel safety. The word caught us like a millions of other Ukrainians by surprise at 5 firm on the 20 4th of February and of course we followed the media reports with different predictions, but somehow we didn't believe that till the end that's such a horror could even happen in 20 century in the middle of Europe. The vocation of children was decided on the same day after the forest bombing of cave. We were in three times in a bomb shelters with my kids. And to be honest, we had only 5 minutes to pack. And I grabbed our documents to address the kids and I tried not to panic and even made a joke about whether to take the Eurovision Song Contest toward or not, but of course I took nothing. Make sure it was the same for most of the cranial mothers who grabbed the kids and ran.

"Finally, on today's program, we're going to take a closer look at some of the days from pages I'm joining the studio by Monaco, senior correspondent Fernando Augusta Pacheco Fernando. I just learned something new about you. You are very much against fox hunting. I am, I have some sort of affinity with foxes when I spot them hearing Midori house. Quite enjoy it. So you know, very sad. First sad news from Austria there, Marcus. When we started today's program by talking about the rather in a situation between Ukraine, Russia and snake so as well. And obviously, that is making headlines in Brazil two and also because Brazilian president Bolsonaro is heading to Moscow now. Yeah, which is a very much an awkward timing for a president Bolsonaro to go to Russia he's flying today on a 16 hour flight to meet putting. And many experts in Brazil, they are very much puzzled why is he going now because there was even pressure from the United States for Bolsonaro to not go there, but clearly he didn't listen to that. And if you ask me, Marcus, why is he going? I think the official answer is that apparently will be good for commercial relations between Russia and Brazil especially when it comes to agribusiness and energy. Is he going there to talk about agriculture and energy? I mean, that's the official answer, but I also have a feeling that is an electro year. And Bolsonaro is not very well liked by Mandy leaders worldwide. So I think he wants some sort of you know what I have connections. I can meet putting. So I think he thinks my work on his favor, I don't think so because everybody in Brazil is very skeptical about this trip. I mean, even I am. I mean, it's very much awkward timing. Things are so tense. Why is he going there? It's a very. Is he going to be talking about Ukraine at all? Well, I don't think so, because he said, you know, he doesn't he's not taking part is not saying if his pro Ukraine pro Russia, he would try to avoid that. But you know, I don't know what's going to happen behind closed doors as well. With both a meeting between putting Bolsonaro there will be a very curious one to beat. If you're inside a room, are you saying now that it's mostly about the photo opportunity, what it will look like before the election. Yes, but I don't think Brazilian voters wouldn't necessarily enjoy a picture of Bolsonaro inputting together as well. Let's continue with more news. This is a story that hasn't actually made it to many newspapers yet. Yes, I discovered actually this morning. Ivan reitman, the iconic director of ghostbusters and ghostbusters two as well. He died peacefully at his home aged 75. And Mark was Ivan very well liked director and the good thing about him. He knew how to do blockbuster comet as well, which is not an easy genre to do it. Of course, close busters. It's iconic to this day and age. But he did some other very fun ones. I mean, he had a very close relationship with Arnold Schwarzenegger. He did kind of kindergarten cop. Very easy and very much watchable films from the 80s and 90s. Oh, he did Beethoven, as well in 1992. I remember that. Yes, he was a producer of manual the films as well. So, you know, kind of few good films, which is what we need as well. So, you know, a loss for the cinema worlds now. In your opinion, which one was better ghostbusters one or two? Well, I think the first one is the most iconic, but I do like too as well. I'm not saying anything bad about you, but the first one for sure. Now Super Bowl obviously, it took place a massive event in the U.S. also shown on Brazilian live TV after a long obsessed. First of all, why haven't Brazilians been able to see this great show and what did you think about the show? Yeah, it's funny because the picture of the halftime show was on the front page of foliage and Paulo today. That's quite rare. I don't think Brazilians care that much about the Super Bowl, but clearly there's a growing kind of niche. A number of people in Brazil that are following. So one of the channels hesitate, you know, they show the Super Bowl live. Even though the ratings were not very good, people were following more big brother Brazil. But if you ask me Mark who's what if Brazilians are starting to care more about Super Bowl, there's only one reason. And that's gisele binging. Our Brazilian top model, because she is, of course, famously married to Tom Brady. And that's the only reason actually why Super Bowl it's mildly even known in Brazil, but she does have that power. She is much more famous than him in Brazil in a way. What did you think about the show? Well, I tried to have time show was excellent. It was finally you see hip hop in the halftime celebration. It was a chronic great Mary J. Blige there, but probably one of the best super bowls there up there with prince Madonna and many others. Well, finally, Fernando monies from your home country of Brazil. Yes, on the front page of a global, there's a beautiful picture of ipanema beach with people wearing bikinis and sungas. It Panama has been elected the second most LGBT friendly beach in the world. And it's beautiful news for Rio, because even though it is dangerous, there's many problems with Rio. It is a fairly welcome in city in that sense. You know, it kind of tries to sell to the world as a kind of a gay capital of the world. And I have to agree. I mean, Panama is very, very gay friendly. It's not only LGBT people. Anyone goes there as a very mixed crowd, a very special bishop to say, so well deserved second place. Tell me more about the atmosphere. I still have it made it there, but what is that was your like? How do you see? That people are so welcoming. It's lovely. There's no prejudice. And that's something that's been mentioned in the article that it's a shame that is only their independent. I wish you could be spread to other places in Brazil as well. Fernando, thank you very much for this. That was Monaco's senior correspondent Fernando Augustus Prosecco, and that's all for this edition off the briefing. It was.

"Sure. If you're a Simpsons character, who would you be? I'm going to say most Isla. I love most is like. I would have to say it wouldn't be Barney gumble. That's for sure.

Now the world is today. One republic richer. As Barbados celebrates its first day of full sovereignty. Yesterday, dame Sandra mason was confirmed as the island's first president. Prince Charles attended the ceremony to mark the country's historic break with British imperial rule. Take a listen. From the darkest days of our past and the appalling atrocity of slavery, which forever stains our history, the people of this island forge their path with extraordinary fortitude Emancipation, self government and independence where your waypoints, freedom, justice and self determination have been your guides. In his speech, the Prince of Wales also reaffirmed the close partnership between Barbados and the United Kingdom. Earlier, Monaco Fernando Augusto Pacheco spoke to Victor Fernandez, chairman of capital media in Barbados and the longest serving elected president of the Caribbean broadcasting union. He started by asking Victor whether this decision had been politically divisive in Barbados. I don't think it's terribly divisive, really. I mean, politically, you will always get people on the opposing side. That is your job to oppose I suppose. But look, this has been the subject of two national consultations. There was the Cox commission of 19 79. And then there was the sir Henry Ford's commission of 19 99, which was the subject of widespread national consultations on the whole question of Barbados, new constitution, Barbados becoming a republic and that sort of stuff. And so on. So I don't really think there's been some talks some chatter from some sources that perhaps you should have put it to a referendum. But I mean, if this has been the subject of so many national consultations over such a long period, there's been no real protests or anything like that. More of the discussion is centered around the charger of Barbados and the references to God being now the creator, but the prime minister has been a pain to point out that this is not illegally binding document. This is not the constitution, and that the preamble to the constitution, which references God has not changed and will not be changed. So overall, I would say that there has been pretty widespread acceptance. We did some vox pop interviews over the last couple of days. And everybody was very much supportive. But there's not this euphoric kind of feeling in the country. It's very kind of calm. I guess as the activities continue the celebratory activities and we've had quite a few over the last couple of days, there is some excitement building. And as you've said, Victor, it's all been done fairly peacefully. I mean, Prince Charles was attending the ceremony as well. So I think Barbados, I mean, we remain quite a close ally to the United Kingdom in that sense, right? Well, absolutely. And, you know, it was really kind of folly on the part of a British member of parliament to actually sit that Barbados was quote unquote selling out to China, whatever that meant. And then you had a lead writer in The Sunday Times, I believe, erroneously stating that Barbados was leaving the Commonwealth. But I mean, this does not leave in the common laws. It very much remains a part of the Commonwealth much like other Caribbean countries that are republics, much like Trinidad and Tobago and Dominica. And they're likely to be others that will follow to as well. But will remain part of the Commonwealth of countries and Barbados association relationship with the United Kingdom remains firmly strong. We welcome more British visitors to Barbados on an annual basis. Right now our hotels are overpopulated with British visitors. So that is not going to change in any way shape or fashion. And Victor, what can you tell us about the new head of states Barbados first president dame Sandra mason? Incredible woman incredible career. But what can you tell us about her and what would be her relationship with the prime minister as well? Well, the role of the president like the governor general is largely ceremonial. The head of state is the titular head of state. The prime minister remains as the political arm of the country. But look, let's talk about David Sandra mason for a moment. She's highly respected, comes from a rural family, a rather large family in the parish of saint Philip. The people from saint Philip, I think there are more nationalistic than most people in Barbados. They refer to themselves as philippians and to the republic of saint Philip. In fact, they've been using that term for a very long time. She's an attorney by training. She was a magistrate. She's highly respected in her field. She was acclaimed by all sites when invited to become the governor general of barbadoes. And it was with you unanimous acclamation that she was also invited to be the first president of the republic. I was going to ask, especially in the Caribbean, I would say, do you think other countries will follow the lead of Barbados on the decisions become a republic? Absolutely. Absolutely. I mean, it's pretty much inevitable. You know, it's part of a process of delinking from the colonial past. There is no disrespect to the monarch or to her successes. In fact, as we speak this morning, Prince Charles is being accorded the highest national honor along with the governor general, former governor general, now president will be the recipient of the freedom of Barbados award, which is the highest award possible under the new Republican form of governance. That in itself should send a message. Now, for me, you may have deduced from my comments that I am very much in favor of Barbados becoming a republic. But it didn't make a lot of sense to me, for example. Let's take Barbados sends an ambassador to Washington. That ambassador could not take up his or her responsibilities. Unless they first had a letter signed by the queen saying, I approve this appointment of my ambassador to Washington. It doesn't make a lot of sense, does it? So I don't think in the normal scheme of things is going to be a lot of change in terms of our daily lives, but it does give you that sense of being now a completely independent of your former colonial master. That is Victor Fernandez, chairman of capital media in Barbados, speaking to Monaco senior correspondent Fernando Augusta Pacheco. You are listening to the briefing.

"This week sees the highly anticipated. Release the new. James bond movie no time to die which has been pushed back by over year g to the pandemic. This is the twenty fifth bond film and marks the final appearance of daniel craig. As 007 on this week's monaco culture fernando augusta per checkers spoke to the film's director. Cary joji economica. How did you bring kind of james bone to a two thousand. Twenty one audience audiences. Well was the kind of any updates perhaps into character or you didn't want to change it too much. I think it was definitely impossible. To ignore the metoo element that we'd been living with when we wrote the screenplay there's no way to not sort of address the fact that the world is changing the office places. Changing the dynamics everywhere are changing minutes. You know about time so that is definitely a part of the story but like we also were where you just can't be reactionary. You can't act like you know a corporation by put a stamp on something acting like you're doing something that has to be sort of like tangible within the context of story is to make sense and feel like it's real and taken seriously and i think part of that. Barbara broccoli is one of the most or the most successful female producer and from the nineties. When dench was brought into play 'em there was a chain already taking place with the character where she calls out the misogyny in that film so daniels run as bond as as continue that legacy of evolution. I think bringing on female. Double os and and really fleshing out the female characters throughout the series berlin. I think was great. Flush dot character and the first film has been the franchise response to the changing world. And and it was going to ask you know. What's the most exciting part of their actionable. Move because you're mentioning. Of course the more important to female characters. But i believe even daniel craig portrayed more emotion as so. I think it's not only about the big exciting action scenes. Well there's quite a lot of kind of emotionally daf to the character as well but what was the most exciting parts of directing such a large budget film like no time today. It was hard to kind of stop and take stock of the moment. I think we're definitely in it for most of the the run of production because it was just time was there was never any time And as the title says. And but i think some of the more exciting moments when you you got a second sort of pinch yourself and realize you know what you're doing whether it was when night the fancy cars came up for you know watching daniel as bond do something that felt so quintessentially bond in those moments. You're able to kind of appreciate it. But then obviously all the weight of the things that were left to be done would come crashing back in. And then you're you're backing and kerry was was bone something that you always wanted to do or was it a bit of surprise when you were kind of invited to their act and no time today die. I wonder what was your reaction as well Well i had actually sought out barbara for drink shortly. After spector came out and at that time daniel saying that was his last bond so in my mind they're pregnant looking for somebody else in the re start so i just sort of raise my hand and said you know who when you get to that point. I'd like to be considered. And then i sort of forgot about. I went on to do another series and that became all engrossing and finish that series and was about to promote it is when i read that danny boyle was dropping out so again i emailed barbara and said What's going on here. Can i still be you considered for this role and that led to a meeting at. Barbara's house in new york with michael and daniel and then nut than more meetings and more meetings than and suddenly i was doing the job it was It was kind of a blur actually happens quickly. Well knowing a little bit of your work. i'm. I'm very excited to see what you bring to no time today. And let's be honest here. I mean some directors directing more than one bone movie. I mean who knows. I mean if you're invited for other one which would you say yes. I'd have to consider it. You know. I mean i. I've never really done the same thing twice. So it's not so much for lack of passion or desire to to to shepherd the character forty even further but it's more just with limited time left that i have to make movies and television programs. I have to be careful about what i choose. Because there's there is only so much time. I one thing that i would like to ask. Because of course it's saw the documentary james bond. How emotionally was tell us about the environment in the sad about that. Because of course then you craig time. It was really emotional. It was it was it. was that last day. Shooting was definitely more motion than i anticipated. not someone that usually gets teary eyed onset and The way you could feel almost the way when you go to movies and you you can feel the room you know in a movie if people are happy people crying. It's a. it's a contagious emotion and onset. It's very much. It was very much the feeling that day you could feel. I remember getting out of the car and walking towards our cuba streets. Which is where we're doing our last day of shooting and just a feeling the weight of it and then as the day went on. Then we're getting closer and closer to that final take watching the crew members around me just breaking into tears and Especially those around daniel and then when we finally did our last take with was daniel walking by the camera walking from camera with his back to us and we did a take maybe did a second tag considering a third take him. That's pretty basic thing. There was nothing unusual to do differently. But i just couldn't bring myself to say cut and say that's it and then there were. We cut was waiting outside the doors for him to come back from the shot. And i think he was even surprised and they were all surprised about what it meant. And his words you know at the end there were really Very touching and that was cary joji fukunaga. Who's director of no time to die. Speaking to fernando augusta pacheco and you can hear the full interview ahead of the film's release on thursday on a brand new episode of monaco on culture. And that's i am out of bond lines for you. This is the globalist on monocle. Twenty four.

"What can athletes teach normal human beings memo about confidence and mental strength. I think pro sports and also pro. Athletes are portrayed also portray themselves in a very specific way nowadays also with social media. Because it's part of the game and it's part of their job to also design an image of themselves in the public eye and something that comes with that. Is that people who are not involved with pro. Sports often perceive pro athletes as being superhuman and immoral end human beings who don't feel pain and who have no doubts and no fears and who never face challenges but if they face challenges they immediately have like a plan that will surely guide them through this rough patch. And that's just not true. Speaking as a sports psychologist works with athletes from the olympic level down to the regular amateur ambitious rana or ambitious athlete. Everybody has the same process they go through. Everybody goes through the same struggles through the same doubts through the same injuries and rough patches. Everybody has private and social lives interfering with their sports performance. Everybody racist that they felt super confident about but that didn't go very well so we all experience the same thing on different levels and that experience in itself boils down to the very same thing that we're all human and we all have the same human abilities. The difference between high performing athletes and amateur athletes or even non athletic people is that because these athletes performance ahead level and because they face challenges and challenging situations every single week and very very challenging situations with high pressure. Multiple times a year is that they have strategies laid out for that the only thing that separates high performing athletes from quote unquote regular people. Is that high. Performing athletes had to work on these strategies and ultimately develop them because they are purchased and in challenging situations so many times and when they can develop it you can too. The marie dot is on unlocking building and maintaining confidence. Today and tomorrow with allience you can take confidence in tomorrow behind you. What's ahead Welcome back to the monocle daily.

"Coming to you from l. studios here at midori house in london. I'm andrew muller it's friday so it sal regular in-house daily and the tune monocle staffers whose names were plucked from my upturn. Top hat by my chimpanzee. Assistant marcus hippy. And fernando augusto pacheco. They'll be discussing today's big stories and we'll have a look ahead to this weekend's parliamentary election in russia stay tuned all that and more coming up right here on the monocle daily in association with aliens on local twenty four. This is the multiple daily. I'm andrew miller and i'm joined today by two monocle twenty-fourth finest senior produces and present his. Who writes this. That wasn't me anyway. Marcus hippie Who i suspect may have fiddled with this introduction and senior correspondent fernando augusta pacheco. Hello to you both. let's do some light introductory banter. Has anybody got anything. Good evening Fernando was the goes we'll the gos- deflected the ghost. Is i have to say sorry to listen to. My voice is a little bit croaky today. Actually i'm still perfectly intellectual capable but my voice is changing today. We'll be the judge of both of those things for no as the show whereas on a but i the international summit circuit appears to be well and truly back up and running this weekend sees athens hosting of it's less jewish fixtures the e u med group wingding which as the name suggests embraces those eu nations with a mediterranean shoreline. This summit will see debuts for the prime ministers of croatia and slovenia on joined with more on this by nick terrorist. Mulia a journalist based in athens before we talk about this particular summit. Let's talk about the med group in itself. How big a deal is within the european framework. Does it have any great power or any great diplomatic heft. Hello thank you very much for having me. First of all year at the group of after tonight was much seven. Now it's nine. They tried to four accommodate down on a number of faces over the last five six years. They have been meeting basically up to now they were trying to have a common stance nine migration which is the biggest asian committed iranian. They they they think that they. They tried to have a impact in european in the yusop midst basically because the cover bic layer a with them because france and they also have italy and spain portugal. So one could say that these are the big players in in the you and say that kept saying a great tamed. The addendum because of a the you made sandwich but you know they tried to have anybody so when we look at this weekend's summit in particular you mentioned migration which will obviously be a matter of common concern. But what else are they likely to be discussing the main issue that they have discussed their day as climate science. And this comes after a devastating summer here in greece in august Wildfires burning for for days. They have burnt the hundreds of thousands of acres of land. They destroyed causes. They have destroyed businesses as Leader houses like twenty lawmakers from acids with this crazy from the center facets and so Made greece greeks understand cow wayman Kyle how imminent how. Warren climate crisis. So this is the main issue. They'd send that day of the leaders making a big deal. These greek media making this. I mean there are lots of fairly big hitters coming to town for this manual macron of france obviously and also the european commission president us vonda leeann. Is it getting a lot of coverage. Oh yes definitely. And the greeks are not very famous another happy with that because the streets are blocked actually a hand they can prove around the you know how it goes in these cases but it stop star in the greek media. Answer demonstrations are banned for security reasons. Despite that there is a small demonstrations take place in the main swear in for the department They're protest against the not dating actions about climate change. Actually that's the main thing of the demonstration today. Makarios to me in athens. Thank you for joining us. There is of course another summit next weekend. In athens much less disruptive one will so we hope the monocle quality of life conference tickets are still available from monocle dot com Let's now Welcome the panel back. Markus and fernando. Let's look seamlessly towards a group of european nations which do not have a mediterranean shoreline either nordic countries as of last weekend's general election in norway won by labour who are now expected to form a leftish coalition government all five nordic countries are now governed by the centre-left at the same time for the first time in sixty two years. Marcus url a resident nordic person here at this table. So we're going to ask you everything How much really do these governments actually have in common. I think they do have quite a lot of income and you have to understand you know. People are not often sure how similar the nordic nations are but actually with the exception of language obviously when it comes to finland and the others there are inc incredible amount of similarities and very similar ways of thinking. I would argue that. These governments are very close to each other. Now obviously they may view right wing bit differently. In sweden. for example. They are still reluctant to cooperate with the sweden democrats for example whereas in denmark. We've been seeing them having more influence in the country. But on the whole if you look at those things if you look at the basic ideology if you look at what. They really work for what they want to create. In those countries there are incr- incredible amounts of similarities. And i think the norwegian election result means that it's going to be very easy for these countries to work together. I think we've seen some amazing examples of how these countries have been working together earlier already. Remember we talked briefly about this. These on monocle i think last year maybe remember that the swedish prime minister for for some reason was unable to attend any you summits and in the end. It was decided that finland's son marine would-be representing also sweden in brussels and those bodily thanks to their similar political backgrounds and then basically group representing baresi mona parties both countries. So there's an incredible amount of trust between the nordic capitals at the moment fernando. It's it's quite common and has been especially common. I think for obvious reasons in recent years for a lot of people to look wistfully at the nordic countries and it's tradition of broadly sensible unfussy technocratic social democratic government. And say well. Why can't we have that here. Where we live is the answer to that question..

"Seven forty five here in london. Let's talk business with asia reporter for bloomberg news nabila ahmed good morning. Avila very good to have you on the program. I'm very well. Thank you Let's begin with your top story from bloomberg. Which is the the the unwillingness or even the ability for americans to say no to working into the sixties. Look this is very much about the how the pandemic continues to false changes. In the way we live and work. We know that more than a million older workers have left the labor market in the us since march last year. I look some people have been rethinking. Their priorities but suddenly retiring earlier than they were expecting is certainly not a voluntary decision. So many but this new study by the new federal reserve shows that people expecting to work past the age of sixty two has dropped to about fifty percent from fifty two percent a year ago. And this is the lowest in study. That's been going on for seven years and people who said they'd likely to be employed at sixty seven has also dropped and interestingly it's adding up to a very dramatic shift in labor market with job growth has been very much dominated by older workers the last two decades and this is people deciding that they've had enough of work or they can afford to retire now. Or what is what is what is behind this. He's a combination so there are certain people who are deciding they've had enough of work depends on. Nick has forced a rethink of their priorities. And given the way that sham could have gone. Some people have experienced. You know a bruce to they wealth and feel that maybe they eat is a good time to retire but stories who are deciding that they need to stay in jobs. Interestingly trying to hold onto their jobs You know we a sort of a more of an iron grip than ever before and i rented banding much higher. Pay to switch. And then you've got those who obeyed simply forced out of the labor market. So tell us a little bit. About what the effect on america's economy will be when you have a faster rapid drop from from the older age age group. Think that's biggest. Benefactor will obviously be younger people who are looking to get into the workforce and this'll be about how the american economy builds up young workers who have so far. I haven't had the same kind of status. Obviously haven't had similar kind of pay but as you see these older workers dropping off and you know younger workers taking this space. Perhaps they don't have the same kind of spending ability that could be one way that the economy would be affected a. Let's move on to another story about The continuing presence of covert in the workplace. Many of us are now doing what we can to move on but still the precautions is still being having to take in many big banking areas and. I wish that we could move on. That would just be such great little deutsche bank which is what we're talking about here. Today was one of the first banks to say. That stuff could work from harm up to three days a week. They talked about adopting this so called hybrid model back in april and really it was one of the mariscal flexible returned to work policies that we saw from the big banks. They said that people could work from harm between forty and sixty percent of the time but in reality what they finding now is that it's left. Many workers feeling isolated. And i can definitely relate to this being out twelfth week of lockdown in sydney the workers are increasingly likely to develop You know health problems due to inadequate for work setups and nearly forty percent of their work is in the. Us have said that they feel exhausted. After four week of zoom kohl's and virtual meetings People still expect to work from harlem to its as a week but officers in the major hubs like london and new york feel quicker and this is not just the way that the wall street is deciding to come back but people having to recognize it. There is there a new realities that needs be gross when people do emerge Luckily from lockton absolutely look work from harm has certainly brought us all new freedoms. It's saving extra cash in commute time etc bought the have been concerned building about mental health and how it hurts or affects inner city businesses. Like local sandwich shop for example And how then you integrate new graduates into new fit into a business and how they interact with their peers. How do they get ahead One group that people have been really worried about being affected by hybrid. Fork is women and you know the theory is that women are more likely to take flexible. Work practices because often they are Caring for young children at harm boss. Does that mean they'll get left behind when it comes to promotions or pay rises so it's a very tricky kind of balance that companies have to work out as as we really do get back into more often noble life nabila. Thank you so much for joining us on monocle. Twenty four finally on today's program. We had to brazil where planned by the bolsonaro government. Walks in of federal buildings have been met with resistance by the country's architects. One of these buildings is the palacio gustavo. Capela nima in ryu modernist icon in the country a monocle. Fernanda augusta pacheco head from the brazilian architect. Carlos eduardo commerce about auction plans. And what he's doing to try to stop it from happening. I think that the first point to make is that the bill on our government has downgraded culture from ministry level to sick grid or yet level. I was housed in newly-created ministry of citizenship and regional development and this was when both on our west's kind of masking is true colors and we head a truce that lasted for one year. And then the senator of the culture was moved to diminish field. Therese where it stands. Now we had an interim president from step for one year because of power struggles between the far-right sections inside the most of our government. Budgetary cuts you know. And we have a new president since a twenty twenty civil seventh with studied juries and the hotel business should has sensibly decided not don't is the board and the staff but culture is expanded for the bonar government an old episode of the ministry of education building sale Justify that i wanna talk specifically about something that perhaps is close to. Your heart is world their plans from the government to auctions Borton beauties for our heritage in general. Why do you think this is happening. Easy just a matter of they want kind of more money with those buildings and nicole disregard as well to those buildings as a the plane for is the government is short of cash. There is an economic causes. Which is the combined result of creep and emigrant's and the dynamic results forget about that dried policies the bone the government needs to fund expensive programs to ball sisters. He's chances of being reelected. They ran a similar auction of government bills. Two years ago without success then the government set the minimum beat now the bias at the beat. You know this is the real problem you know. You realized that this is not the case of few buildings or a fee exceptional buildings. The bolsonaro sonar buys minister of economy and these acolytes. They set up a problem that affects all federal buildings in brazil. Dan not for sale ostensibly by the anyone can be bought. Just make your beat so the situation is kind of more of lettuce even than when you look at it only from the standpoint of heritage those guys they do not distinguish being listed in non released. A public abilities. Legally leased buildings cannot be sold. Only transferred from one branch of the government to another but jurisprudence has shown that the peace can be worked around so there is ariel bender. The points did. There are three classes of public goods in brazil. Natural ones like straight squares of also beaches and the forest reserves Did you have the special buildings that are those administrate that are being used by the administrative service of the government and those are the ones that cannot be sold but then you have another category were as being shown that even wet least because of the demand sufficient that builds can be. Actually you know transfer to private enterprise. So there's a real danger. As i said it's the kind of situation where the age is not for sale but any building in the still of the night. I mean you know because there is actually known ways of how real the public money toward these offers than whether they are accepted the art not now so this is the point. Let's go through to know. Why are those buildings. Were talking about why they're so important. For example one of the main ones of course is the name which is an icon for brazilian modernism. Modernist architecture rights. Well actually. it's not only hike. On from brazil's bothers for worldwide. Mothers is the the building was designed. Process is started in the nineteen thirty. Seek seeing the as government in it to ninety s to complete it was a unique In nineteen forty five but actually it was already completed Biding forty three. So that's when you have these in january forty three when you have these blockbuster exhibition at the museum of modern knocking york and west gaul brazil builds a new and old though and the ministry was one of the stars of the show along with.

"Cool. I never watched it then. Moving along Today is friday thirteenth and though the serene seamlessness with which this show has proceeded stands in itself as rebuke to any of this date as inherently unlucky. It is nevertheless a cue for the consideration of superstitions especially such as may be indulged by our panelists. I will kick us off by saying i do. Strangle a duck before every one of these programs There's no real reason for it. Just it's just a thing. I feel like i don i please don't writing. I have never in my entire. Life strangle locked. Ducks actually normally do the show. I do very very funny docks. But i feel we are deviating from the point. Philander do you have any superstitions that you would like to tell us about. I think i have more than i would like to. In a way. I think i believe sometimes in the supernatural. Quite a lot and one of them. It's a bit mad. Do you know why. I don't click fingers tonight. I just did. But i think if you do it once. It's not a problem for what i'm gonna tell you. Basically from a young age my mother told me that if you kind of click fingers a lot you would attract spirits inside the house. So now when i see people like snapping fingers apparent people doing these days i get scared because i'm like oh my god is gonna attract bad energy and and i mean it you know i do. Generally get scads was any particular sort of spirited. The spirits have names shapes backstories. I think it's general thing. But of course i. I'm worried about the bat. Spirits coming over so please don't don't fingers quite a lot. I wasn't planning to Is it just bad spirits. That get someone by this. Is it not. Is it not possible to someone. Good ones but i. I don't know how this works. I do know how this works either angel. Does there other things things. I'm quite skeptical of people wearing hats or caps indoors. Because again i blame my mother for every no because i mean apparently detracts bad spirits as well. I'm like oh my god please. No caps in those napping fingers k. Creative with admiral while she was it. Was it just hatch snapping fingers. What what else was out okay. That just sounds we'd like everything else. Is everything else is just fine. Do what you like leave. How wilt except for wearing hats indoors snapping things. What happens if you snap your fingers while you're wearing a hat indoors. Then it's over all over for you. Okay josh can. You compete with that. No needless to say it's all absolute rubbish and hokum that i did research before apparently in spain and in greece is not friday. The thirteenth is wednesday. The thirteenth in italy is friday the seventeenth now which is an ill omen less favorable through the glasses. Our producer colada rabelo who's from portugal and in portugal Is considered bad manage to leave bread upside down on table. How can you tell when breads upside down. I think they mean sliced bit in the muck sorry colored canoe yelling my year. Is this true. She's very worried about that. The cross did sorry every time. Obviously every time tries to explain this nonsense to me. Everything's going to be quiet which is bad and possibly even unlucky. I'll i'll do the next one. Which i'm told me about this. Say after new year when you enter a room the first time you do it It's bad luck to enter with your left foot. I presumably to start the here on the right foot. They is is that every room will. Just the i re i mean just the first room you walk into after new year or every room. The first time you walk into it often i'd i'd i. I believe i believe the right i. Would you like to know few bad things. That happened on friday the thirteenth apart from this program in this program being chief among them There was the the the cost of concordia ran aground. Buckingham palace was bombed during world war. Two and to pacture cordite every other uh miserable thing in the world happened on another day which i believe is proof that we should count lucky stars and snap your fingers so she can snap away.

"You know you get a target set at the top Even if it's a long term one you then have to work out what the pathway is. And you'll beginning to see that for instance in In targets for renewables you. You're beginning to see decarbonisation plans. Food steel sector for example. Coming up now the the the flooding and the and the suppression of news. The flooding i think is an is another issue. That's about the party. Not wing not wanting to f- to to be portrayed as indifferent to the suffering of the people so they are going to try and suppress the bad news. And i'm sure there's a lot more bad news to come. But i think the one of these things that that that these disasters have done and certainly not just in china is to remove the fallacy. That if you do nothing. Nothing changes and postponing climate. Oh complaining about the cost of climate action rests on that fallacy. The idea that is it is cost-free cost loss to do. Nothing is is for the birds. And i think we've seen that you know i equally the the the idea that again is put forward by those who resist the notion that we have to have a transition and that's only can adapt well really The scale of the disasters the scale of the flooding and this is just the beginning. This is one point. one degree warming. I think to imagine that we all to be able to adapt without massive costs and and possibly loss of life is is also a fallacy. So that's quite important in terms of of the kind of political support that you could at this point expect for for a more rapid Transition and the other thing is it's not all bad. There is a better life on the other side of an energy transition. You have cheaper cleaner energy. You have much better. Ed- you have you know a sustainable world. Which isn't teaching on the brink of disaster that can be sold. It seems to me in even even in you know to a jaded population. I mean you've made it possible so now that people are ready to buy electric cars. Although they said we'll never get those they'll have to In two thousand thirteen britain because they were not allowed to sell petrol diesel cars finally on today's show.

"And i'm chris tarmac coming up on today's program. We have to get to the bottom of what happened. That's the only way we're going to be able to prevent the next pandemic or at least do a better job in mitigating it. The us foreign policy. Chief anthony blinken continues to push china over the origins of cove nineteen but has beijing effectively ceased all cooperation plus. We'll have the latest from tokyo. As the director of the olympics opening ceremony is forced to quit a day. Before the showpiece begins. We'll also be rounding up the day's business headlines and fernando augusta pacheco brings us his weekly pop extravaganza. What have you got for us chris. Today were going truly global shared delightful songs that are making the world. Dunn's thanks very much fernando all that right here on the briefing with me. Chris tarmac and me. Tom edwards china's health ministry has rejected the second phase of the world health organization's plan to investigate the origins of cove nineteen the. Who wants to look more closely at whether the virus could have actually escaped from a chinese laboratory but beijing leadership has flatly refused to play ball and says the probe quote unquote defies science. Now we heard from antony blinken at the top of the show. This is what the world health organization's director-general tetris at an gebreyesus had to say we are asking julie china to be trying to spread into open and cooperate especially on the information raw data that we asked for the early days of the pandemic that was the head of the world health organization. Let's now get the latest on this with monaco's health and science correspondent dr. chris. Smith chris is also a consultant virologist at cambridge university. Chris thanks for joining us on the show. Today let's start with what the. Who found out in the first phase if you will of its investigation and what. It really hopes to find out this time. Well i think they found out that although china pay them whole heap of money then very cooperative because it took him a very long time in fact. It was a year before boots. Hit the ground in china in wuhan in order to start investigation when they did that investigation. It was dubbed by many as a just a stage-managed manager show and They spent a very short amount of time in any of the venues which are implicated in the outbreak and they spent less time actually getting the samples that they asked for in fact they hear brick wall and so as a result of that people have decried this as just sort of lip service and asked for more form investigation the. Who now saying what we like to make a few more inquiries in china as you've just said to flatly refusing to cooperate. Well i suppose the question then is what what was the. Who expecting would be one thing where they where they hoping for any form of cooperation on this as you say the last time round it took a year. There wasn't much cooperation when it started. Did they really expect a second phase to to actually yield results. Well i think china recognizing that the world is staring at them and the the world wants answers and if china has nothing to hide as they say they don't anything to hide. Then why are they not being open. And transparent and cooperating more effectively more consistently more rapidly a year as some people put it between actually an outbreak occurring and then people being allowed access to ground. Zero is more than enough time to clean up any kind of mess and bury a few skeletons that were looking in closets and i strongly suspect that that has been going on i think the w. h. o. Had expected probably better treatment. They've been very very gracious towards china but they're paid load of money by china and that's part of the reason why donald trump got the with the w. h. o. and and withdrew american support because He recognized that there was evidence of conflict of interest but the w. h. o. Really being made made out like fools because china is basically just saying now. We're not we're not interested in playing ball with you well given that side of the w. h. o. The funding that they get from china as you say what. What do you think they should do. Differently. What can they do differently. What pressure can they bring to bear on china and and you know how far could the. Who can they do anything really on their own. I don't think they can They they are a global organization that people involved in situations like the one we're currently in but they can't predict the situation that they're not a predator that will have china Running scared china will just say no. Thanks and the only thing that really will. I think work here is massive concerted international pressure china's got most of the world addicted to its mass manufacturing. And we're all buying stuff from china and You just have to look at what happened. When the sewage canal was blocked by the boat evergreen over the previous few months the supply chains from china were interrupted temporarily and it had immediate knock on effect there are repercussions i think if the world starts to say well hang on a minute you know this is impacted. Everybody this finger-pointing exercise. This is a learning exercise. And it's in everybody's interest that we ought together. We work together and we work out. How the source of things happen and put in place. Some kind of safeguards and surveillance system so that there is openness and transparency and data sharing with everybody everywhere that's in china's interest as well as everyone else's interests and i think the way that to bring to the table mate them listening to so we're going to stop buying your rubbish and just stop buying cheap chinese took and just the only thing that will listen to his co. is cash as all they're interested in so i think that the world has to make united concerted effort and and basically cut off the nourishing supply of cash flowing..

Death is going to be seen as in italy as well as is this going to be a clearing all headlines on news bulletin solemn tributes from leaders of the nation etc. Sort of yeah yeah. It's the top item on the italian news websites right now. The president of the republic has already issued a statement saying how deep this losses figures from politics to entertainment to music across the spectrum have paid tribute because she was singer. She was an entertainer but she was truly like a public figure. And what's really interesting. is i guess. Her transition from being this kind of product turban seventies to this very endearing familiar face right aging her aging process. She's still it's always maintained energy as fe was saying she was had. These incredible costume glitter all sorts choreography.

"Prime minister. Boris johnson has urged his fellow citizens to reconcile themselves to the idea of having themselves as he put a merry little christmas keeping gathering small and celebrations modest. And if there's any one person. In britain who can be taken completely seriously as a model of prudent abstemious restraint in their personal it is surely boris johnson covid nineteen restrictions will be relaxed over christmas but the government seems to be hoping that people will observe from anyway. It is infamous fairness quite the messaging challenge especially as vaccinations begin how to remind people that while we may be on the right track. We are not the woods on with more on this by lance price former director of communications at ten downing street lance if we focus specifically on the messaging challenge over this christmas would actually be easier. If there wasn't a vaccine. Well i don't know about that would be simple. Obviously if he could just say to everybody you can't dismiss. Let's cancel christmas. I'll be grinch. I know it's tough. But i'm prepared to do it because people aren't going to die if i don't and the vaccine certainly complicates whose ability to say that there's any evidence that he wants to say anyway and but it does make the challenge of advising people that the rules of area but that actually the government doesn't want you to follow the rules and he says it's too late to check for people to change their plans and then in the next press. He advises people to do exactly that. And to restrict themselves to stay in fewer people for less time than the rules actually allow. What would be the political judgment against just going full grinch. Would it be as i think a number of skeptics have suggested just that boris johnson has a chronic aversion to bearing bad news. Or or would it be a apps. More realistic assessment. That people just wouldn't listen anyway more of the latter than the former. He's had to accept his responsibility for delivering bad news. And although he's always reluctant to do it and he looks very uncomfortable doing it. He has full become used to having to do that. And i think where he's falling down. These is in in recognizing with the vaccine starting to be rolled out with relatively slowly. And it's only a relatively short period of time. Now that people have to knuckle down and be super super castle and <hes>. He has taken his foot off the accelerator. He said that people can have this five day break and over over christmas when he knows in his heart of hearts. An older advisors are telling him this that it's very dangerous. Relaxation of the rules and that people will die one commentator in the in the times of london this morning describing those people who will out sadly lose their lives as being like you know the young men who went over the wire in the dying hours of the first world war just before the armistice signed. When you think back to your time in downing street did you have a general philosophy or idea of an approach for a moment of national crisis. Was there a a tone you so you thought you should take. Yes and i think. I'm a clearly nothing on the scale but we had to deal with some pretty bad news that had to be delivered to the to the public about health crises and about other matters as well and they approach to be always was to be extremely direct. Not give anybody the impression that you're holding anything that lay the facts on the table and actually go for a harder. Line the hats. You might be tempted to go full because you'll always regret it if you don't think that's a lesson that this government hasn't managed to learn. Do you think it's arguable. That boris johnson's appeals to a sense of personal responsibility. Fall into that whether that can be set to fit into the axiom that a moment like this. It's better to treat people like this soldiers than treat them like the victims. You know give people a sense of responsibility. Give them a a sense of purpose. Not that's all very well. We've some people clearly clearly doesn't work with other people. I think they have the evidence now to back that up because we have seen in parts of the country where people have been told to behave themselves in toll to a dietary restrictions. And they haven't done if you look at those graphs. We say on the on the news every night as they are taking up again despite the two or three restrictions that have been imposed and there is still that element of confusion about the door and people unsure about whether or not they all supposed. To be a vein. The rules or not just a few minutes ago. We had the health secretary in the house of commons announcing that cut large areas southland east of england being put into the higher tier two to three but literally less than a week. Not enough time for to make any difference and all of that is it. Goes against the sense of either got options. One is to give people personal responsibility and i just ask them to be sensible and appeal to their better. Nature's other to tell them have to do. It's fully between both stools. Do you think the government has yet recovered the credibility it squandered earlier in the year by defending dominic cummings for flouting the rules that they had themselves laid down an indeed that he'd helped drawer up that lingers that linda's own that was a key turning points in the government's communication strategy and in the confidence that the public <unk> advised from from number ten. The prime minister look really embarrassed when that was put to him directly by the labour leader promises questions on yesterday <hes>. He didn't even answer. Didn't attempt to answer because there is no answer he can give to that. And and and i think that from that moment on people were less feeling. Well i will make up my own mind about this and in many ways the libertarian and boris johnson is okay with that it wants people to make a thorough months but he wants to make the right decision and and it don't make the right decision a he knows in his heart of hearts going into going into christmas and that if there is a significant increase in deaths over christmas he might try to blame it on people not doing not doing what. He's advise them to but most people will blame it on him for not been clear. They just finally do you think. Boris johnson has yet found a way to adjust himself to what is clearly a serious situation. I know we've talked about this before that you you have now. Situation where amount newest spent his entire career in public life pitching himself as a fundamentally unserious figure has to lead the country at a moment like this he struggles with it on on a daily basis. And you can see that in the not only the lack of clarity in his mind every time he opens melted public. Whether it's a news conference or the house of commons you can see that. He's wrestling with the prime minister. Team wants to be in thought it was going to be on. The one is having to be in the midst of this crisis. And i'm afraid his critics and i would count myself among them. <hes> have never found the need to revise our view. That is the romance. The job at this time land price. Thank you as always.

"Argentina has declared three days of national mourning following the death of diego. Maradona very arguably. The greatest footballer of all time at the age of sixty upwards of a million people are expected to pay their respects kosovo's on the presidential palace in buenos aires his monocle. Twenty four obituary away from the outside. But you're legion for dead outside for dead epoch. whatever he did look like. It wasn't a footballer. He was short about five foot. Five and stocky. He seemed as wide as he was told. If you had to guess which field of athletics he would succeed in. It might be weightlifting or wrestling if you met him. This opinion might well be reinforced in no realm. Did he seem at home. With as or graces diego armando murder donahue was born on october thirtieth nineteen sixty in la news just south of buenos iras. His childhood was spent in the shantytown of via we to on the argentine capital's outskirts. He was spotted early. He was fifteen when he made his premier division debut in nineteen seventy six. He was sixteen the first time he wore the blue and white stripes of argentina in nineteen seventy seven though he was omitted from the argentina side. Which won the world cup at home in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight.
