"The weather worn wood, scuffs, and general neglect are all remnants of a previous owner. Well, this is your deck now. So let's turn it into a deck that truly feels yours, with bear premium stain. Then number one rated stain, according to a leading independent consumer publication. Tax rate, at the higher levels of income tax, Leanne, after thresholds, were frozen. What's the story here? I mean bracket creep is something we've seen before from budgets. Yes, indeed, and it's not really a happy Friday story, is it that this story is in the Financial Times Anne as you said all about income tax rickshaw sunac and inflation. So one in 5 taxpayers are soon expected to be paying the 40 or 45% tax rate after Rishi sunak froze income tax thresholds until 2026. So about 4.3 million people were paying this percent when Boris Johnson actually became the prime minister back in 2019, which is just not that long ago and this year to expect it to rise to a record 6 appoint 1 million people. So nearly 2 million people have been dragged into higher income tax brackets since last election as we also see inflation rising. And Lyanna strike at BT as well, another strike. Another strike, we've heard about strikes haven't we a lot of late, but tens of thousands of BT workers are to walk out in a national strike. Now, this is for the first time since being privatized under Margaret Thatcher we have been talking about Richard Nixon when it comes to the markets today. And this is all following a row over pay. Some 30,000 workers are open reaching 9000 call center staff have voted to strike against what they described as an unjust and unsustainable wage deal. There have been offered a 5% rise, but they do argue that they want an 8% rise, so they will be going on strike. And this could affect 9 9 9 calls, but we don't know exactly how and if that will happen. And then just one other thing, if you have a lottery ticket, I really want you to check it because where have you been reading about the last early on? Yes, yes. I never played the lottery boys talk about the lottery anyway. The national lottery is still waiting for its winner of its 7 million pound jackpot to come forward. That is a lot of money. Yes. Gosh, wouldn't it add up? I'll be crying when I pay my taxes. It's understood the lucky ticket was bought in the wilver Hampton. So if you live in that area or you've been there, why don't you check your tickets? I mean, what would you do with 7 million? Would you come in to work on Monday, Stephen if you have that ticket? Where are we reading that story? About the national lottery? In every paper. Every paper, every single one of all of our hamsters, Wolverhampton locals. I wish I had the numbers, but Wolverhampton local press all over that. But I mean, you know, it's always fun to look at these things and it does really change people's lives in the long run. Certainly does, okay, Leanne garren is without her life-changing part of you. Thank you very much for that. This is Bloomberg. Markets, headlines and breaking news 24 hours a day at flew back dot com to Bloomberg business and math quick take. This is a Bloomberg business flash. From Bloomberg's European headquarters in London, I'm Anna Edwards with this Bloomberg business flash European equity markets, picking up on the first day of July, kind of with the same story they ended the June half year with. It was a negative period for risk assets and it continues to be so for stocks we are down on the stock 600 down 9 tenths of 1%. The FTSE down 6 tenths of a percent, the kakarot down 9 tenths as is the Dax this morning, so we see negativity across all cable listings. The FTSE down 6 tenths of a percent, the kakarot down 9 tenths as is the Dax this morning, so we see negativity across European stocks today. In terms of the sectors on the move, a big emphasis on technology and tech stocks are down by 2.6% today here in Europe, and a lot of this links back to Mike Kron, we got that latest guidance update from Mike Ron that detracted from any positives that were in their earnings release and sent that stock lower after hours and that has led to a weakness for European tech names infineon, ASM international, both of those names down by more than 4% in today's session, so ask European stocks U.S. futures also pointing lower than E minis and Dow futures and NASDAQ features down by just shy of 1%. This morning, the MSCI age Pacific actually down just shy of 1% as we head towards the end of the Asia trading session. Oil prices continue to be a little bit weaker and actually this has been a trend of the past few weeks, one O 8 is the handle on Brent we're down by three tenths of 1% so substantially weaker actually than it's been a week or so than it was a few weeks ago. The U.S. ten year year of now down below 3% so the trend in the first half of the year was selling stocks and selling bonds, but the Bond story turned around kind of mid June, and those yields have come down from three and a half percent to 2.96 is where they stand as we continue to focus now on recession concerns. The dollar a bit stronger in this risk off environment, the Euro down half a percent, one O four 36 pound, down 7 tenths of a percent to one 20, 97, that makes imported inflation little more of a challenge. That's the main bag business flash. Now here's Leon Guerrero's with more on what's going on around the world.

"In the Conservative Party let's bring in blue bay to the Ann gerrans for more highly Anne, so this is about one of the Tory whips. It is indeed Caroline so as you just mentioned there another scandal seems to be unfolding within Downing Street in the story features on so many of the front pages this morning, including The Guardian, the sun, The Daily Telegraph and the mail. Now Boris Johnson's deputy chief work has resided after being accused of drunkenly groping two men, Chris pincher, said he was embarrassed and after drinking far too much on Wednesday evening in a letter to the prime minister. It's understood to have happened at a conservative private members club in central London. However, he is still an MP of tamworth and labor says it shows the party is covered in sleaze and are calling for his resignation. Okay, Leon, turning to a different story now, a record number of people in Britain are paying the higher rate of tax. Yeah, indeed, this is not a Friday morning story. Is it really? We seem to be paying higher a lot of things at the moment, don't we, Steven. But this story in the Financial Times and it's about income tax Rishi sunak who's a Chancellor and also inflation. So let's start with the Chancellor Rishi sunak. So he decided to freeze all come all income tax thresholds for four years, which has led to a record number of people paying higher tax rates this financial year. So with higher inflation, meaning that many more people are going to be dragged into these higher brackets and The Office for budget responsibility that the country's independent fiscal watchdog now estimates the effective tax increase will create many more higher rate taxpayers and is a stealth tax that rises raises much more money. Okay, so that in the FT, and then we've talked actually quite a lot about broadband connection and there's another issue now. Yeah, there seems to be another issue broadband, doesn't it? We always sort of have a touch on this, didn't we find out Nottingham was the worst country to live in if you wanted to have broadband, but now. It's not city, yeah, sorry about that. It's Friday morning. I've lost the plot. Anyway, but this is actually quite serious, and it will affect all of us really if this does go ahead so tens of thousands of workers at the UK telecom group BT have voted in favor of the company's first national strike in about 35 years, the union ballot came after the collapse of pay negotiations earlier this year. BT says it's already offered an average 5% increase for staff, so there is an increase on the table. However, they still choosing to strike and landline and broadband customers told to expect disruption as engineers call center and shop staff do take action and also a just read something quite interesting today something that ITV news reporting and that's about could there be disruption to 9 9 9 calls because that's obviously using the BT line two so lots seem to be happening there. Yeah, just looking at that story and The Guardian there about that strike at BT interesting back in April the BT gave its workers a 1500 pound pay rise, which it said was the biggest and around two decades, but The CW calling this offer the latest offer insulting at a relative pay cost. That's the story and the guiding this morning about that BT strikely and Garrett thank you very much for taking us through what's in the newspaper is this is Bloomberg.

I have tried to decipher what the story is on his health. What do you know? What I know is that he was, he in 2017, his doctor had told him that not only did he need to lose weight, he was a 400 pounds, but he also had a heart condition, and he needed to be taking blood thinner. You know, I mean, it really compartmentalizing it, but that's basically what they told him. What he did do is lose the weight. It was sort of dramatic, very quickly, he lost it. But he didn't ever go back to the doctor. Never took the blood center. And that is why he fell ill, it was not why he had the stroke, but that is why he fell ill and had to have the pacemaker. And so he never sort of revealed this and now that's all caught up with him. And his doctor put out a statement the other day, say, you know, saying in effect, you know, this is what happened. He almost died and we now have him in a pacemaker and taking the blood thinner and he's on the road to recovery.

"That's right, 54 members of the Tory party. Now the way it works in Great Britain, they're not going to an election just a bunch of the members of the Conservative Party have had it with Boris, and they send letters to something called the 1922 committee or the committee on 1922 or 1922 something or other. And the senior member of the party is the chair of that. And when he counts 15% of letters demanding a vote of no confidence, they have a vote of no confidence. And so Boris got hit with that this morning. The magic number of 54 was greeted. I think some Tory members of parliament were watching Boris get booed on his way into St Paul's Cathedral for the platinum celebrations yesterday and they said, you know, we're going to lose a couple of by elections this month and we're going to get crushed if Boris is the leader. So we better dump him now. We still have two plus years left and the majority we can get ourselves a new prime minister,

"From the evening standard in london. I'm david malls land. And this is the leader worcester. Yes is with his covert winter plan. Still under wraps boris johnson to the british gas training academy in leicester as if daring the headline writers to do their worst here. He is a scientists. Warn of another couvert peak. Getting a lesson on how to deal with pressure pressure. And we're better to get advice on what to do about a leak from a gas company. Leaking trusting respect to meanwhile although many of the of proposals for the rest of this year have been widely trailed the pm staying tight lipped on at least one aspect and he wrote out a winter lockdown or is it still potentially on the table. We've got to do everything that's right to protect the country but the way things are going at the moment we're very confident in their steps that we've taken all be sending out a lot more Tomorrow i'll give you a full update on on the plans for the of the autumn in the window and that is not a new well. Deputy political editor. David bonds are westminster office and he joins me now. David as being a lot of speculation about a pandemic firebreak and everyone sent back to their homes and masks. Is there anything more to those rumors. It's very interesting. Because boris johnson was saying that they got to do everything right the country. So he's not ruling our this stage despite there being lots of opposition to it from his Backbenches the idea of having yet another lockdown And despite the the the comments from his own cabinet. So i think it's unlikely But i think the moment johnson wants to keep in his back. Have they completely ruled out. Vaccine passports now again there. There's some confusion uncertainty. I mean we had nadeem zahawi last week turning. Mp's the plan was still introduced him into nightclubs by the end of the month by sunday had said he javid the health secretary. Say that actually been ruled out completely fa- now so i think there is confusion number ten again of said that they want to retain the ability to use them at some point. If needed so. I think there is a great deal of uncertainty. I think the only thing you say for sure now is that they went becoming in by the end of the month and we also have some uncertainty about facemask use. Well don't worry yeah and again. I think you know so much of this will be really interesting to see. What's in the detail when we get boris trump's winter plan tomorrow but to raise coffee. The worker pension secretary Was saying on monday. Morning that These are sensible measures. I think we're exact words they want to look at retaining because i think the truth is as cases rise and You know runs into windsor flu. They're absolutely desperate. Not have health service overwhelmed again. So i think that they just want to try and retain as many powers as possible at the same time signaling that they won't go back to those draconian lockdown measures which really 'cause the economy's grunted a whole so i guess with all of this room is speculation going round. You can see why the prime minister kind of feels like he needs to make a statement to clear things up doesn't he and i guess i wonder if that's been a theme throughout this pandemic that it's all being a little bit muddy at times that people haven't been certain about what's going on. Yeah that's why critics of the government would say. They haven't helped themselves because they performed so many u-turns i mean again. You saw it. Combats point about vaccine certification. Over the weekend you know you have one minister saying one thing on. I think it was wednesday. I think you had another minister. All of the dowden. Friday saying the plan was to introduce them by sunday. You had such a javid saint completely the opposite and they'll number ten saying well you know they might come in so i think they don't help them with some of the messaging. It is obviously complicated as fast moving situation. You know the truth is no one really knows what's going to happen at the moment. The days of looks like it's going in the right direction in terms of hospitalizations and deaths. But you know there is still a possibility of a new very coming along or if the vaccine starts to not be as effective through the winter months then boris johnson would be in face all sorts of criticism if he was then to say well. I'm going to rule out taking any of these measures in the future. The nhl looks up being overwhelmed. One thing we do know that pretty much the only thing we know about the impact of kuna virus right now is its effect on the economy we can see it laid bare. We know there have been job losses and the prime minister has been talking about trying to kind of re up the economy today. Hasn't he has. And if you look at the gdp figures last week again. Sort of signaling. The some concern about the true effects coming through on the economy after the sort of beast with reopen coming in the summer that perhaps the economic recovery is going to level off a bit. It's not going to be as strong as expected. So clearly the charts. The soon extremely worried about this. I think one of the things that johnson really wants to do is fine. Get people's focused post pandemic on economic recovery on job creation so was obviously very keen to be talking apprentice ships and jobs for graduates during his visit to leicester on monday to try and create this sense that you know there is. There are jobs out there again to his. Coffee was talking about the number of vacancies and the sense. That plan to save jobs has worked. They're very keen to emphasize the way furlough scheme people out but that you know the fellow scheme is winding down and so you might start to see that coming through In terms of unemployment numbers in coming weeks but you know whether the economic recovery sort of course it was a very big question johnson. Yeah and if he wants to shift the conversation away from the pandemic itself and back towards leveling up the country as he says then avoiding that overwhelming of the nhs over these coming months. it's going to be essential to that isn't it. Yeah i mean absolutely hence that lockdown. They really can't afford to have another look down in the coming months. That'd be desperate to avoid at all costs and one of the interesting things look for in the winter plan when it comes on tuesday will be to just see which pieces of legislation are going to be taken out of the government's toolbox on us because that will tell us which things they think they no longer need. So things like You know laws close schools to detain infectious people restrict large gatherings and other events. That will really give us a sense of the direction of travel. Of course they can always just bring back in legislation today as they did during the real peak the pandemic. But i think you know all. I think they want to message to people that this thing is over that boris johnson is key in the people. Don't live with it. Even though of course you know death still a significant level.

"They were in coalition with the conservatives number of years ago and prompted a number of reforms. That's what led for example to this fixture in parliament act was was a result of that coalition But certainly i would think if it was that. Or boris johnson who is going to go forward with the no deal brexit than that would be possible now again we've been talking about elections in in future machinations in all of this but it of course still does not answer the question of whether brexit and under what form of brexit so this general election. I think assuming it happens before. The uk crashed out would essentially then be seen as a a second referendum on brexit but it is difficult if you still have a labor leader. That is broadly supportive of it and then it would become a question of whether or not he would back a second referendum as part of his a party manifesto going into election. Yeah i mean it's a second referendum except in the sense that both sides support leaving to one degree or another right. It's it's the leaders certainly do so before we turn to Other matters. I wanna i wanna focus briefly on jeremy corbyn substantive views here. He wants you said he wants to negotiate a better deal himself. I don't have the impression for all my distaste for her. That theresa may left a whole lot of negotiating leverage on the table like that. She sort of gave away the store to the eu. What is the thing. He thinks he can get that. She didn't get in those deals that he criticized as not good enough. I mean interestingly much of what he wants. I think you could still end up. Getting underway. theresa may deal. It would just politically require him to support. A theresa may deal so we tend to talk in shorthand about the brexit negotiations or the brexit deal. There's actually two separate documents. The first document is that withdrawal agreement. That's essentially the divorce settlement. It deals with payment with northern ireland border with the question of you know what the rights of british citizens living in europe the rights of eu citizens living in the uk. All the technical details of what the divorce looks like. And it's it's rather difficult to see how you adjust much of that leaving aside the conversation. We had about the backstop for northern ireland. The second document is the political declaration. That's not legally binding and it deals with the broad framework for what the future relationship between the uk and the eu ends up looking like and this is also a place that we're starting to see a lot. More divergence from boris johnson. So i think for jeremy corbyn he would like to see the uk. Stay in a customs union with the rest of the european union. And so what he wants could have been addressed in the political declaration by setting that out as a political aspiration for these future negotiations..

"After a no deal brexit are that the brits deal with the situation in northern ireland they pay their outstanding bills and they deal with the rights of eu citizens living in the uk so from the us perspective. Boris is going to have to deal with the set of issues either now in advance of a no deal brexit or immediately after a no deal brexit the e. u.'s. Perspective is that it's going to be so catastrophic in chaotic for boris. That he's going to have to cave on all of these issues and come back to them begging for resolution to these things to negotiate a future relationship so dumb question. But i wonder if part of what's driving boris johnson. Here is a delusional sense of who blinks in the game of chicken. So i look at this situation. And i say a new deal. Brexit is a royal pain in the ass and very embarrassing for the eu but it is potentially catastrophic for the uk and. I don't understand why. Boris johnson would look at that situation and think that people in brussels are suddenly quaking at the at the prospect that he might pull a forty five out of his pocket and shoot himself in the head. Is there some sort of damocles hanging over. Brussels that is not hanging over. boris johnson. Himself were or is this or is this a situation in which he's standing under a giant sword and they're standing under like the toothpick of damocles and threatening them. i think those are very apt analogies. I think he expects the europeans to be much more freaked out about the prospect of a no deal brexit than they seem to be. It's certainly going to be economically damaging and problematic for them. It's not something they want but they have been preparing for it for the last year or to the french. The dutch others have been hiring additional border. Guards their attitude is. It's going to be painful but but we can bear this the only country that's really gonna suffer in. Interestingly it's the one that's the most dogmatic on this question of the backstop is ireland Because ireland of course is going to have to live with the consequences of a destabilized peace process in northern ireland. Which you're already seeing continued warnings of the political economic insecurity risk there The uk government is said. We're not gonna put customs infrastructure on the border with with ireland. We don't wanna do that. The irish government has also been saying that publicly but the problem for them is if they wanna maintain trade with the rest of the eu. They're going to have to comply with the regulations and certify that what is coming out of their country is in compliance and so ireland is is really the remaining eu country. That's going to get squeezed the most on this But i think most observers would agree with with your assessment of the situation. And i find it a little hard to understand why boris assumes that the eu is is going to blink which is very amped up rhetoric on no deal. Brexit seems to suggest that that's the path he's very rapidly heading down all right so option to is that his government does not last long enough for this. Now he's got a one vote majority or however many you said he had one right and there are plenty of of tores who did not support brexit and cannot be happy with the situation and so my question is why should we assume his government will last. You know five weeks let alone. Three more months i is. It's very difficult to see Not having an election at some point this fall..

It's true this will make the mortgage re but his parliamentary management is troubled. Anyway as we've seen from the row about the door point seven as we saw the vote this week on the train. A virus extensions as we saw when they crumbled without any votes. At all in the face of mockus rochford a majority of eighty. These days isn't really well. So i'm not really shaw.

That you've broaches highlighted so if portions and cannot press ahead with planning reform. How much problem is that. His level of agenda because level offers a very broad concept lots of eighties. It feels that it's mainly about mittens and north politics. That's how the tourist set out but planning reform was built as part of this in terms of increasing obscene t and has in the future so james if he can't do that. Is that a big problem. In terms of his premiership in the short term you can rewrite in the planning rules to essentially encourage more house building in the north and the midlands where it is jen really more popular especially with new tory voters there. Lots of whom on new homeowners. I'm basically stop and not bill. Very many houses in southeast that is storing up huge problems for the tory party for the future..

"Is no greater way for a country to be reminded of the impact of the corona virus than to hear its own leader is in intensive care with the disease. Boris Johnson. The British Prime Minister spent the last twenty four hours in an ICU in a hospital in London. The news has up ended the political establishment in Britain. The country's Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb has stepped in to deputise for Boris Johnson. But it is not clear what powers he actually has leaving. Brits wondering just who is running the country as it faces its greatest crisis in decades. The world's oil barry joins us from London. Or what is the latest Boris Johnson? Orla where we understand. Boris Johnson is stable. He spent the night as you said. In intensive care today Downing Street reporting that he's in good spirits he's not on a ventilator but he is receiving. Jn Many people who end up in intensive care with krona virus to need ventilators. And that's the reason Downing Street said that he was put in intensive care the ventilation would be nearby but they stated today that he doesn't have pneumonia which is positive needless to say he still is in ICU. And it's a very serious condition for prime minister to be in. Boris Yeltsin requested that the Foreign Secretary deputise for him. What does it mean in effect? Is that the official line of succession. It's a good question in effect. Dominic Robb will oversee the cabinet meetings. Quite Boris. Johnson is incapable of doing so and I've heard numerous government. Figures already coming out today to say that the most important strategies for the coming weeks in terms of tackling the virus which is essentially all government is doing right now. Have already been undertaken so Dominic. Robb is following the rules and strategies already laid down by Boris Johnson before him but the government representatives themselves were sort of at pains to say the country can be wrong Andrea cabinet system. How we Rhonette run as here role than needing the prime minister to be in position and to be in charge have listened to the former leader of the Conservative Party. In Duncan Smith. Talking about this today not presidential system. We have a prime ministers and somebody said I must equal. The rest of those equals are still in post normally robbins wanted or he will lead through this. Where the difficulty? I guess lies. Everyone is talking about how these cabinet committees come together and they make a collective decision but what happens when the leaders of each of those committees if they disagree in one of the big decisions that will have to be made in Britain in the coming weeks is in regards to the lock down. So we're under lockdown for the last three weeks and that three weeks is running out next week. So decision has to be made. That would have been a decision. The Boris Johnson would have made to the general public now. The understanding is that there's some disagreement within the cabinet about whether it should be easier. Weather should be kept in place. Can Dominic Robb. Then make that decision. Does he have the power to make that decision so he was asked the question? What happens if there is a disagreement? We've got very clear. Directions very clear instructions from the Prime Minister and we focused with total unity and total resolve on implementing them so that when he's back hope in very short order we will have made the progress that would expect so as you can see. He didn't really answer the question mark. Oh He's sort of fluffed it to be honest but Downing Street's again today they have been a pain to say. Boris Johnson still very much. The Prime Minister Queen Elizabeth made recently was roundly described as powerful and inspirational speech. Even church Chilean and she doesn't speak that often. She has a country to be ambitious to band together. Is the UK finding new leadership in the Queen or even royal critic softening to what her presence can convey at this time? I think in a sense. If we're to feel little roger last right now and if people are saying that they feel that there. Isn't somebody in charge in ten Downing Street? There is a sense that the queen brought a sense of leadership and unity in her speech. And I think it was a sense of sort of optimism and hope that people needed right now because well honestly you know. It's pretty much in short supply at the moment. The world's oil berry in London. Thanks very much thanks marco. Because of disease Israeli security forces have imposed a blockade on a city of two hundred thousand people. Almost no one in no one out again. This has nothing to do with the Israeli Palestinian conflict. The residents are ultra Orthodox Jews when the corona virus hit religious leaders from their community. Were slow to adopt the government's recommendations on social distancing now people in the town of Bananas Barack are paying the price. Naomi's EVOLA has the story from Tel Aviv. The ultra-orthodox or redeem as they're known in Israel make up about thirteen percent of Israel's population. But they now account for a third of the country's corona virus cases. One expert says up to forty percent of the city of Benin Brock could now be infected.

"Boris johnson throws british politics into turmoil suspended parliament. The prime minister committed a constitutional outrage. That's this lawmakers. Take let me put it to you that your president in america wanted to do something that he did not have a mandate for the majority in congress for you. Simply abolish congress. Boris johnson has his defenders though members of parliament pushing for brexit say just get on with. I'm i'm carol hills. You've got the u._k. Parliament covered today on the world also after eighteen years of war in afghanistan the u._s. and taliban are closing in on a peace deal. It's been a long and complicated process. Sometimes these negotiations go on well into the night and an old chinese rebel base attracts a a new generation of tourists those stories ahead on the world. I'm carol hills. This is the world prime minister. Boris johnson had a surprise for british politics today. He asked the queen to suspend parliament for five weeks starting starting september tenth. That's a big deal because the u._k. Is hurdling toward an october thirty first deadline on brexit but johnson said today. There's ample time for parliament to work things out in parliament for m._p.'s to debate <hes> the e._u. The brexit and all the other issues ample time after the queen approved johnson's call to suspend parliament what followed was a whole lot of outrage. It came from the opposition from political pundits. The public and members of johnson's own conservative party is absolutely regis smashing grabble democracy typical johnson nonsense trial. He wanted to the little king but he's making a good start. It's dictatorship a constitutional outrage constitutional crisis beyond outrageous. It's just not right. I i will hear from both sides joining us. I today is pauline latham a member of parliament from the conservative party and a supporter of boris johnson. She says the prime minister's move is not as drastic as critics are saying. It isn't technically suspending it for five weeks because we weren't going to be there for almost four weeks. Anyway regained back next tuesday for two weeks and then we take the conference season during the prioritization all the houses. We don't sit tim parliament but isn't parliament where the discussion needs to be where the work needs to be taking place around brexit this major major issue yes potential burress johnson comes back with either a new deal or no deal. There isn't really anything further discuss. We have discussed it dozens of days. He's over the last three years. We've discussed it again and again and again. You sound very calm about all this but today the value of the british pound fell after the news was announced announce. Do you worry what all of this is doing to british business and the u._k. Economy of course fluctuations in currency a never good. I mean it could be good for exports but it isn't going to be good overall for the country and the sooner we can give certainty to the country which who'll be the first of october whether it's a deal or no deal then i think that things will stabilize the upset today about this announcement is that it's dragging the queen into this mess and many people see that as unseemly it isn't really dragging the queen into it because he has asked for preservation of parliament so that she can present the queen's speech which she does regularly. This is the longest period of time. We've we've gone without a queen speech and it is time. We had a new direction impoundment because we got a new prime minister. Now there was a snap poll this afternoon in britain by yougov and says only twenty seven percent of british people back the suspension of parliament forty-seven percent said they oppose it. That's not really going in your favor favors it. No i understand that but probably it wasn't explained that we were actually having three or four extra days from when we wouldn't wouldn't be sitting anyway. The trouble is the media have been irresponsible and whipped up animation amongst the people who are worried of course i worry because they're not being given the whole story. Well it's not. It's not only the media that's getting whipped up. A lot of members of parliament are pretty whipped up. I mean members of your own party..

"Channel in zimbabwe called bust up tv. Eh the this channel has been testing the limits of free expression and what they can really talk about since president robert mugabe longtime leader of zimbabwe step down and so oh she plays all sorts of things like a policeman in one skit or a housewife in another and they vary indirectly poke fun at the government so what happened to her. It's pretty scary and pretty gruesome. I mean career was at home wednesday night. Around nine pm. She heard a knock at the door and today in an interview you know her colleague sharon today you who's a fellow comedian described what happened some masked gunmen came to a house they knock on the door and the police but the woman woman they opened the door. They realized that they men with guns. Word must stay drag outs. She was wearing just had topped the underwear and they shoved into a vehicle. That was parked. Offsides ended drove off with and then should a._o._l. Says that the men drove crat to this place where there sewer water flowing and the men said to her you mock the government and we've been monitoring you and then they basically told her to kind of simulate army drills and they had her roll around in the water so carol what's going on here because i think a lot of our listeners will remember kind of the last pivot point in zimbabwe was that the ouster of the longtime dictator mugabe wasn't zimbabwe's supposed to be in a less repressive place at this point pluralism. Maybe even a move toward democracy. That's what was imbaba were hoping for and so these satirists kept producing these videos but they still want to go ahead and try to illustrate what life was like in zimbabwe. They've gotten in trouble. They did a skit involving police. <hes> <hes> to to actors are in it including samantha korea her colleague fellow comedian is being interviewed by a reporter saying we heard all these reports a police brutality and she's saying oh no. That's just the the foreign press. There's nothing happening here but in the background is samantha correa playing gone yeti beating up these two young men and so people interpreted that as you're you're going after the government and at the time of that police video. She was warned that her comedy was becoming too political. Is there any evidence that the thugs who -ducted korea this week are any way connected to the ruling government and has government responded to this event. There isn't specific direct evidence but there are reports that the car that drove away with her on wednesday night was the same car used in other kinds of attacks tax on people considered critical of the government the ministry of information put out a cursory statement just saying that the matter is now in the hands of the police that they're investigating this is case of kidnapping and assault but it was quite brief so what is next for korea and <hes> this bus stop t._v. Group that does these satirical videos well at this point wait. They're gonna lay low korea herself. It's not clear where she is right now. She's recuperating somewhere but they're saying they're not going away. They're going to be back. The world satire watcher carol l. hills with our eyes on zimbabwe today. Thanks very much. Thanks mirko. If you happen to be in new in northern finland today you've got a few activities to choose from you can visit their world class science museum go to nali cari the beach it is still summer after all but i think you'd be best advised to check out the annual air guitar world championships championship in hulu..

"It started a couple of weeks ago. When israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu at the suggestion of president president trump decided to bar to democratic congresswoman from visiting israel ilan omar and rashida to leave things escalated soon after that when trump fired off a series as of tweets that many saw as anti semitic the president also claimed that american jews who vote for democrats were disloyal. How did all of this resonate in israel. Aaron lerman served on israel's national security council. We reached him outside. Tel aviv on his mobile phone to the best of my understanding ending both israel and the united states stood republics <hes> while there are many people who are deeply appreciative of the president's position <hes> i think i mean multip- for a friendly sentiment president the trump i think it's very important for us to retain our seventy and <hes> and <hes> in in this situation. I think some of i'll stay here languages so let me bring into the conversation budget ungar sargon. She joins us from new york where she's the opinion editor at the forward a a news organization for a jewish american audience. I mean donald trump has been called antisemitic but so have democrats representatives omar and to leave the d._c. Them as spurring hate for israel. I'm really glad you brought that up. <hes> we can't really compare because there have been mass murders by people quoting thing donald trump and quoting neo nazis and quoting white supremacists so the anti semitism on the right has had a much deadlier force at at the same time when you have to congresswomen who say antisemitic things at that point jewish community starts to feel truly abandoned. I don't think they are anti-semites. I don't think about about people that way. The question is do jews feel safe in your country and the answer here is no so but what do you think the trump white house taken a positive approach to diplomacy with israel through you know as an american jew. I feel very strongly. The needs that israel end its occupation of the palestinians and grant the palestinians living in the west bank. Thank civil rights so to me what trump has done is. He has <hes> enabled netanyahu to pursue the exact opposite to pursue his worst ethno-nationalist tendencies and to me that is not good for israel and it's not good for the jews so aaron lerman. What does loyalty from american jews look like for you yes i i think <hes> jewish people in both sides of the accounting to raj raja commitment is to remain united around some swim.

I may dispute vacuous claim that most american jews a few horrified by israel stamps <hes> given <hes> the immense efforts wait to make peace with the palestinians in recent years and the terrible wave of tyrod style country the previous decade. All of these are experiences. The unique shape is rarely perspective but we must not allow delayed tacoma expediate drivers but what what attitude you think american jewish should have toward israel. I'm not sure if i hub of you about what they should be but i can tell you what they are. Ninety two percent of american erkin jews say that they are pro israel <hes> for a long time israel was sort of the beating heart of american jewish identity in the last two years because trump is so anathema the american jews that has weakened because he's so close to israel the stain of the trump administration has started to spread onto american jews most beloved entity entity in this world which is the jewish state and that's been truly heartbreaking. <hes> and i just wanna say also <hes> there's been this effect where the jewish community has started to raise its voice out more on behalf of the palestinians as a result of this close partnership that is so horrifying to us <hes>.

"Is it direction so if russia for some reason after the putin era would move back towards embracing democratic ideas and enhancing democratic institutions shinzo integrating into the west. That's the right time to have that conversation. Just bring them back in without them changing their behavior. I don't think that serves america's national interest interest while speaking of american national interests there have been all these attempts over the past well twenty years <hes> under putin at resetting diplomatic relations with russia a mostly. They a have seemed to fail including under obama when you were ambassador. Why will markazi that history a little more with a lot more variation. I don't think it's been consistent assistant failure and the first years of the reset between president obama and president medvedev right it wasn't president putin we accomplish concrete things we signed nine. The new start treaty getting rid of thirty percent of the nuclear weapons in the world. We got new sanctions multilateral sanctions on iran. We got new supply route staff ghanistan in all of those things. It's not about good relations bad relations. I think this is a big misunderstanding about diplomacy obama engagement yet to achieve deep concrete outcomes. The prisoner obama believed were in america's national interest and when we looked today to president trump's engagement with putin <music>. I'm hard pressed to think of one concrete outcome as a result of happy talk that the two of them have now <hes> that has been good for the united states so take the medvedev our relationship out of the mix. Do you think the answer to why several resets maybe not all of them. I have not succeeded is the answer putin. Yes i think i think a lot of it is about putin's mindset. <hes> you know in fundamentally. He believes that the united states is an enemy of russia. He believes that the united states is out to thwart russian power and violate russian sovereignty. I dealt with him upfront and personnel on this. You know if you have that mindset about us. It's very difficult to find of win. Win outcomes in dealing with putin right now. Michael mcfaul was u._s. ambassador to russia during the obama administration. He's now at stanford university.

"Of being slightly unkempt and so on doesn't really ring true when you actually study the man well those are two very senior in frontal positions on mayor of London as well as being foreign secretary. How did he do in those jobs? What do they tell us about in the way you might governor well? He certainly is best best legacy for being London. Mayors across London Olympics oversaw that in twenty twelve. It's actually difficult once you look beyond that to think. What did he really do for London? That was already a global city. Did he make it more global probably because he likes to encourage investment and so on ad there was some infrastructure projects for railways and so on kind of local things that you'd expect any mattered to get hold of FERNS secretary wealth by that point his I was probably on Brexit and I love how he he could become prime ministers. He doesn't really have and and hugely significant successes name as foreign secretary but he was in those offices and that's what counts so you could say has a record of governance a good record of governance well. We're talking about brexit. I mean that's the issue that brought on his predecessor to resume. She was unable to convince the party that Herbert's deal was the best for the country and that was the best country could get from Europe is Boris Johnson going to be able to do better this. This is where he gets so difficult and this is why this podcast could be very tricky actually in any of the Times if we were talking about electing a Prime Minister Great Britain I would think well this is easy enough but it's so complicated. The one thing you can say about Boris Johnson is he has house a defined position which is if we don't get what we want from the European Union will have the hard brexit and for anybody who doesn't know what that means and by the way this whole brexit process has been full of the most incomprehensible and unwieldy terms this would mean Britain Baxter this exactly this would mean Britain crushing out of the European Union having to revert to what the World Trade Organization at calls a bilateral this whole thing on with leaving the E._U.. Is like a game of Polka really can these politicians like Boris Johnson. They want to call the bluff of countries like France and Germany and wants to find out. How much do these countries need the U._K.? Even outside of the e you think about the trade ramifications the financial ramifications London. It's one of the world's leading financial senses you're absolutely right. How much is it all posture would sorta starting to find that out because the European Union keeps giving Britain extensions to deadlines for leaving the E._U.? What we can say though about Boris Johnson as he has a defined position or so he says Theresa? Theresa May's position was much earlier. It was much harder to pin down. You could say in that respect. She was a genuine public servant. She was trying to do what was best for the U._K.. My personal is Boris. Johnson wants to see what's best for Boris Johnson into resumes biggest problem with says she couldn't get the on her side of the majority of the body side. <hes> is the potty going to get on the side of Boris Johnson when it becomes prime minister because they already seemed to be some who's saying well not so sure about this. No deal breaks this is it and of course I those people have constituents to answer to run a big companies small companies who trade with the European Union so on the one hand they might cheer Boris Johnson at coming into office on the other hand. They probably got one eye on this seats as well and know that if Britain goes into were forecast big recession Britain loses value any kind of slump. They're going to be answerable to the voters but having said all of that he he's the man for the hour. If you like this party has lurched far to the right in recent years and here's the man who talks their language you ask me is really going to happen. It's impossible to answer. Ask this question continuing. I've been asked this question for the last nearly four years since the referendum it's impossible to know no because ultimately parliament has to decide on this and as we've seen so far it's been deadlocked might end in the general election is possible might end with another referendum that's possible to but that would be rather tricky because as the people that voted in the original referendum would feel defrauded surely if there's a second referendum the votes to remain although I hear people tell me increasingly in the U._k.. We didn't know what we will voting for. Let's have a second referendum so all of these different options a replay Canberra's Johnson force it through well. You just mentioned the backstop on and so now we have to talk really technical. What's the backstop? The Irish backstop is this is quite a difficult thing to visualize podcast hospital. I'll I'll do my best. It all hinges on the United Kingdom. A northern the Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom but Northern Ireland is also pas of the island of that includes the Republic of Ireland. We're essentially talking here about how northern island has an arrangement with Republican violence continued trading once it's out of the European Union the backstop was conceived as a kind of temporary arrangement that allow trade to continue between Northern Ireland on the Republican island. It gets complicated because Northern Ireland is the U._k.'s only physical border with the European Union. If you think Scotland Wales England those Foam Great Britain that is an island the reason it so sensitive is that we had thirty s plus of a sectarian violence in Northern Ireland and the Republican violent at all of this of course over this sectarian violence over demands for United Ireland. We had the Good Friday Agreement back in one thousand nine hundred eight which brought peace and bloodly settled this now there is any kind of heart border between the nor- Northern Ireland and the Republican violent could lead to resurgence in violence between people who say you are once again dividing the I land of Ireland is really sad so effectively. You'd have that border going up again. This is it now we went from this concerns about hard border to you and I that would include some sort of physical barrier between those two countries with customs TMZ checks Boris Johnson come on board with the idea they call it an alternative arrangement. It could be done in a low key way so as not to give people the idea that vehicles are being stopped one thing that's people I think outside of the United Kingdom might not grasping press people even in the U._k.. As well some people in the Republican and another line would see even that a some kind of border even if it's a customs officer with a scanner scanning fruit and vegetables they would see that as sort of digital divide if you like so it's it's much much more. It's much more critical than just the idea of a border. There's sort of that's a an emotional side to this as well. Boris Johnson is on board with this idea. There's the jury's out on whether this were according to the European Union in even these sort of spot checks would constitute some sort of physical surge and the idea in the European Union is the customs union and that your goods are allowed to pass through unchecked largely all that we have support. I've been talking to on faircloth..
