"Lot of what motivates socialist thinking is is examining not. Are things getting better than they used to be. But all we closing the gap between one humanity could do and what it has done. Hello Mr Konczal in the box media podcast network. My my guest today is Nathan Robinson who is the editor of current affairs. The author of the book why You should be a socialist He has himself socialist He's a fascinating and I think in some ways one of the was persuasive of like the new generation of socialist writers arguers and thinkers. I've read his work and gotten a lot out of it. I've been the target of some of it as well but we've a good civil relationship behind the scenes and I was excited to have on the show to talk about this one thing. He does here that I want to set up his way of thinking about the conversation to come is he. Draws a distinction thinks in between the socialist ethic and Social Organization. which on the one hand I think can be seen a bit of a dodge and it can be hard sometimes trace boundaries of like well? How would this socialism actually work but on the other hand? I think it's very important to listen to this distinction and take it seriously because when you try to understand why are a lot of people now identifying Socialists Socialists actually is about this ethic so in some ways. I think that he's gotten something here. Deeply right that would be easy to dismiss but if you dismiss it you're gonNA miss a lot of what is happening and current left politics right now. I'm also you'll hear US talk a little bit about the Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn election in the UK. Obviously when we did this episode. It was before that election had happened but I left it in because I think it is a it's useful actually have that conversation sort beforehand because some of the predictions in our relevant for what we were talking about so yeah. Tom is a flat circle. And you don't always hear when they happen. So I apologize for any weirdness that creates but I think it's still useful to hear the conversation in its original context as always you. You can email me at your outbox dot com. We're getting closer and closer to my book tour and two are polarized coming out. So if not priore that or check out our the first leg of the book tours coming Ming do that at why. WE'RE POLARIZED DOT COM but here without further ado is Nathan Robinson Nathan Robinson the broadcast. Oh Hello Ezra Nice to be with you so I was going. Did it begin by asking what is social but actually having read the book. Now I WANNA ask you a different question you ask. What is the difference between a socialist ethic which often seems to me to be what you're arguing for here and a socialist economy? Will you know. There's the great Eugene debs quote which is while there is a lower class. I am in it while while there's criminal element I am of it and while there is a soul in prison I am not free. And that's not a description of worker Ownership right. That's a description of a feeling about looking at the world and feeling solidarity with people who are at at the bottom with the underclass with imprisoned and I think that is just as important to what animates socialists in in having socialist sentiments as some idea about how production should be managed and people focus a lot on the question of like central planning running. But I think I've been doing interviews of socialist interviewing people around the country and I was asked himself why. Why are you a socialist? What does it mean into you? And the unifying thread really is not like a very clear vision for how a socialist economy will work. It really. Is this the deep discomfort and anger and this powerful emotion that you see when you look at the world and you Z.. Power relationships and you see a small class of people owning so much and a large number of people working so hard and having so little in that historically. That is the thread that has run through so much socialist writing and speaking and there there are interest. Socialist divides over nearly the every question. But the one thing that socialists all come together on is that the idea of having you know wealth and poverty ready coexist the idea of you know hierarchical relationships and social classes is really really disturbing To us on a very visceral level and socialists. Look around the world and we don't see why people aren't more upset by various various things. You will line at the end of the book that I found really helpful and you write that. Socialism is a term that describes a bundle of different political philosophies some which emphasize is greater state control the economy some of which actually want less state control the economy but all seek to empower the working class and deplored the concentration of capital in the hands of rich people and one of the things that you trace in the book is that there are Libertarian. Socialists who are concerned about The power of the state. There are much more status socialist. Who Want to increase increase the power of the state but if social just ends up being an anger at injustice which many people I think feel they have Certainly I feel I I have it. Does it describe anything all that useful. How do you actually draw the line? Who is a socialist when it can it can involve both What what we think of his version of Libertarianism version of you know state planned economy socialism? Yeah of course the they're supposed to yours. GET PEOPLE GO. Well I don't like injustice and you know Hubert Humphrey Headline Concern for the unfortunate. That's not socialism. Now there's one part of it where I don't quite believe people a lot of the time in one reason is because they're not in Ralph. Nader says you gotTA have fire in your belly. And it's about what people choose. Choose to focus their energy on and what issues they highlight and you know Bernie Sanders for example brings everything back to you. Know he's broken record about Working People's conditions there conditions at work. The you know the ability to pay for healthcare. He won't shut up about those things. And is that what you spend all so it's about sort of. How much time do you spend thinking about these things you can affirm sort of rhetorically? Oh yes that makes me upset. I don't like that but but I do think there is a very. There is a real difference in the kind of emotion that animates social in fact emotions. Big Part of it. The book called the Romance of of American Communism This is about sort of the emotional roots of why people joined the Communist Party. And there's this real this feeling of solidarity. Do you feel that the like you take Eugene debs wards seriously where he said wall there is a soul in prison. I am not free. which that's that's quite a radical statement right because it means that you don't feel free until there's prison abolition so I do think there is a sense in which in which Socialists are always kind of the ones who don't just deplore things and from their bad But you know won't won't leave it alone. They refuse to content themselves and you know but the other thing is there is something substantive to it which as I say as it before there is the owning in class in the working class right. So that is something that Libertarians for example when Libertarians. Say Well I of course I care about homelessness and it's just a matter of housing supply. But they don't think about like democracy at work very much and that's something socialists. You know almost uniformly talk about is People having to sell their labour and having to accept conditions conditions that they wouldn't accept under equal bargaining power so power socialist talk a lot about power and inequality power lips at them. So I WANNA use. Actually healthcare's is a good example here so I'm obviously part of a bunch of different ongoing healthcare debates and something I'll see in those debates is you will have activists who've been working thing every day for the past twenty thirty years people who run organizations out there on the front lines or run interest groups or whatever it might be who've been trying to get people health care but they believe reasons of political pragmatism or because of how they think about the state or whatever it might be that the way to do it is more incremental list and then you have people who are out of the more DSL wing of of the Democratic Party or just of the DA itself. Saying you know you're a terrible neoliberal Because you own support Medicare for all and without trying to settle that debate. One of the things that that debate says to me. Is that the distinction. You're drawing here is not the way a lot of people see it. There's no doubt in my mind that some of these people getting called neo liberals but have worked on healthcare for thirty years trying to get the working class affordable healthcare care more about it than the people logged onto twitter that week to attack them. Now that doesn't strike everybody but there is a way in which as far as as I can tell actual socialist really do see whether or not you're supporting kind of fully state based egalitarian solutions as the measure of whether or not you deserve to be called Not just an adherent to this philosophy somebody who cares enough about the the working class to be able to Claim that ethic one reason people are suspicious though is because a lot of the the people who voiced support for incremental pragmatic. What have you don't seem to hate the idea of an insurance industry? CEO Oh which socialists do socialists the idea of profiting off denying people care of making a lot of someone gets millions aliens of dollars off of my health or healthcare plans. They're very disturbed by that right that that other people live well and that class element of it of some people are are running companies and those companies. Their business model depends on in reducing the amount that they pay that it really disturbs socialists. In a very very visceral white which is one reason. They're very anti The the concept of private insurance profiting off of people as something that really really really upsets Socialists that makes sense to me but then where to somebody. Who is a libertarian socialist or a market socialist? In some of the frameworks. You build on the book. Where do they fit in? Well you know I it. You'd get different answers on this right and I think there are some Libertarian Socialists. That used that term to mean basically anarchism and a lot of anarchists have called themselves Libertarian Socialists and anarchists. They're not the most pragmatic people you probably have to ask. An anarchist anarchist. Just healthcare plan would look like the Libertarian Socialist tradition that I sort of operate in is basically the one that Noam Chomsky advocates. which is you draw? Inspiration from anarchist's analysis where you're very anti hierarchy and question everything and ultimately you'd like to see much much less state control of people's lives and you're very pro civil liberties and you're also suspicious of people who advocate socialism but then seemed to want to concentrate power and very few pan which was supposed to be the problem we were addressing Chomsky. Someone who in the in the very short run obviously Sees a single payer healthcare plan as has a pretty reasonable thing you can make pragmatic accommodations to the realities of the world in which we live while having this incredible Utopian Vision for several hundred years in the future and and so much of so many of us have rallied around things that we think are radical data coal enough to change people's lives very significantly. But they're not the way that we necessarily would live in our utopia for example like labor unions. Labor unions are not an optimal institution OPTIMA labor unions. Presume a kind of divide between people who are working and people who are owning and obviously if you had socialism common ownership you wouldn't have labor unions 'cause you wouldn't have that division but building. The Labor movement is a really really important part of socialism day because it helps to equalize out those those power relationships. Let's talk about Libertarian Socialism. For Minute because I think that's a thread or movement non idea. I know what to call it exactly that. Most people are not that familiar with so you. Identify defy Just there and in the Book Times Libertarian Socialist also in the book virtually every Idea you have is a lot more state right. You want bigger healthcare programs and and so on so what does it mean to be a libertarian. Socialist well one of the main emphasis is on civil liberties right and on in free speech and against policing and militarism the arms of the state that are the armed parts of the state right the really really repressive parts of the state and so we are less suspicious necessarily of the state as a means of moving money around but very much suspicious.

"Votes sometime in December how you vote I I would imagine I'll be voting no now I always you know have a console if there's something new something we haven't heard something that really rises to the level of treason or you know a high crime that would be different but we don't see that they don't digest band drew the Democrats southern Jersey will not vote for impeachment right now we're watching the committee you go back and forth I will not put these audio up because will drive you crazy I'd say the same things over over your two missing since September I now they just screaming at each other but again a vote in committee shortly and they will see and hit the present be impeaching committee that the a piece by the body but he's losing more more votes I was talking to a few people this morning it looks like Democrats to lose five at least five votes so we in tradition some Republicans will come over that it can even keep the their single party together joining us now is Henry Olson he watched oppose comma senior fellow at the ethics and public policy center and he's now over covering the Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn Alexian and also with the side really the future of brexit nor possible trade deal and we welcome back can I bring it to America for second we're about to get impeachment in the committee houses playing in this country you talk about maybe the lot of the battleground states tuning out on this yeah you know the thing is that the Democrats have now put on their best shot and after initial shock right after September his poll ratings are back up almost where they work and all the polls suggest that if you were calling trump in September you're opposed to impeachment now and that means the swing states are likely to be at best even in probably a little closer and a lot of these democratic house members are caught between progressives you wanna primary them in the general electorate that's pro trump that will reward in the journal beach it's not moving the Democrats way it is in and you point out they did something that is something in these polls the Republic views opportunity to putting millions of dollars into the Midwest and they're using impeachment in these ads right right now I mean you know you've got to the American action network has been targeting of up to thirty of these democratic incumbents in swing seats mentioning impeachment other pro super pacs separate property when the same thing and the I think it's beginning to have an impact you know you hear about all these Democrats will moderate you say maybe we should venture rather than Peter maybe Alcatel directors it's bad political look for them in the general election but if they don't they could very well be primary and they're just stuck between a left the tapes on the white walls and back to C. no Instagram just said I'm not having a trial I'm not calling Joe Biden will do that separate but we need to get this over with as soon as you get to my desk we'll have a quick trial and go meanwhile Mitch McConnell said yeah we're not doing you SMCA until after your impeachment trial even though could be voted on and passed which means Americans are paying the price for the year are horrible behavior other will win this thing in Washington if you're saving like this center no I've never seen anything like this in the book I I'm old enough to remember the Reagan years very clearly and obviously the Democrats media like Ronald Reagan but it was my kid gloves compared to what's going on with president trump and the the the the level of Lucifer's hatred that gets express on a regular basis and the charges that are made are simply beyond parallels my life and what do you think in the end of the voters to if the house voted the committee voted today maybe tomorrow is the general vote what how many how many votes do you think the Democrats get they need to seventeen the got to thirty three yeah you know it I I listen we may have to close gonna let loose on the floor so she technically if she doesn't have a I you know I I think they could lose as many as ten or twelve wow and could be very tight vote but they're gonna make sure they've got it because I reckon suffered the embarrassment of getting defeated in the chamber the controls you make people walk the plank to make sure she was don't you agree Henry that's a disaster if you lose ten that's a disaster yes but the fact is that they've got that many people who represents pro trump districts you know they've already lost two one the impeachment memory loss to the inquiry about any and all the people who represent true district a compliment to be treated before fifty five percent I've been please half of those go down you know so I I think I would not be surprised if in the end she was finally cast account the bulls and we are willing to go as many as ten for their own political purposes as long as you start to twenty right and we'll sing with us in the west in posted overseas covering the breaks election so Boris Johnson looks nervous he evidently was saying that this is getting close can you give us an idea of the parliamentary system he's expected to win but it's all about how much power how many how many how much powers party gets in the parliament can explain yeah they they have six hundred fifty individuals and there's no direct election of the prime minister's whoever wins three hundred twenty six so we need the majority of electing the same way we do first past the post most because when you don't get a majority and what he's worried about is what happened in twenty seventeen for all the polls show that his predecessor was going to win a big majority and on election day she lost it so the polls suggest that he will be returned to office with a majority but what happened to him years ago has every conservative running scared so they're saying don't take it for granted this could go south remember two years ago get out and vote get your neighbors to locate your neighbors talks to go through that you're such a condo get your neighbors neighbors to about it and and make sure that we don't have so you did famously here present from broke the blue wall you right but they have their own version of blue wall that bars Johnson's got a win over is the red wall in Stoke on Trent explain this day today the labor party is like the nineteen fifties Democratic Party and has traditionally debate labor unions and working class people and those people don't want to say in the year and they've been leaving the labor party over the last ten years and of course gets returned it's going to because he wins twenty to thirty of these places that may never have sent a Tory to the house of Commons many of the lot of them so since the Great Depression but the polls also against you kind of turn a good chunk of the great wall blue and that's why he's going to become prime minister so Leslie Henry what is your sense on the ground to the like Boris Johnson I find charismatic confident kind of funny the bridge click on there's a lot of British to people who don't like to make you an as a Donald Trump type figure he is a lot of people don't trust him a couple of people who I can and the blue collar people like that's the thing is that Boris Johnson is the most American like personality that they pass and number ten since Margaret Thatcher and yeah the upper class people kind of think he's not good enough for the job but the working class people think he's a right like bloke like them and they will get a shot and predictions I will be tweeting that out tonight after I go through the numbers but I force will win with a comfortable Hey Harry thanks so much to great column here putting this in perspective gonna get a vote I do have some news to share the market's up I almost is two hundred twenty points because it looks at the White House offered to China to suspend the terrorists who was supposed to be in place to sever fifteenth so that was a big exhale for the market in a big push the US MCA about the a past the market as a move by Chinese terrace not in place the market.

Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn and city-khan joined members embers of the public at the vigil to honor Twenty Five Year. Old Jack Matters and twenty-three-year-old Saskia Jones. They were the victims of Azman. Come a convicted terrorist released early on license. There are many questions over how he was able to fool authorities into letting him into London and go to the prisoner rehabilitation event. Jack and Sascha was supporting but our editorial column says the Work of those two young people should not be sacrificed for political gain. Jack Merit and and Saskia Jones were talented and caring. Young people who were helping offenders imprisoned returned to society and give support to victims of crime. Our Oh beautiful. Talented boy died during what he loved surrounded by people he loved and who loved him. Mr Mertz family said was full of compassion. By contrast the response from political leaders has been predictable and less impressive from Labor there have been stock complaints about cuts. What's that the man who carried out? The attack has had resources lavished on his case. The problem is that this didn't stop him. The Conservatives have resorted to their lock him up and throw away the key approach that we thought had been consigned to the dustbin of failed ideas. The way whose main con- was convicted sentenced and then released. Allie was obviously floored. We need to know why but rolling out headline chasing claims even while police were still on the scene of the attack. It doesn't help a home. Affairs added to modern. Bentham is with a piece in the standard looking at the work of the intelligence services in this area and Martin. They work extremely really hard. But they can't always keep us safe no and particularly given the relatively recent phenomenon of people carrying out these very crude attacks with weapons such as knives or indeed vehicles virtually impossible obviously to stop people getting those type of weapons and virtually impossible potentially at least a to identify the moment at which somebody might carry out such an attack when particularly if they seem to be behaving quite well beforehand and show. Yeah no particular signs back in the day you had the al Qaeda type plus and they were very very complicated plots involving explosives extensive number of people designed to bring down aircraft and so on which obviously we have absolutely catastrophic consequences if there ever realized but give a lot of opportunity soon issey potentially for the security service and others to intercept detect. What's happening not quite the same when somebody just decided to pick up a knife and go out and randomly attacked people? This is a man who was being monitored who had attack who was banned from London but loudon in on a on a can of free pass for the day. The must be so many questions being asked right now. All we know he was complying with the terms of his release lease and he was appearing to be a model reformed prisoner. That doesn't seem as we don't know the full details of the background of the case. Yes and no oh. The facts may emerge but as as it stands. That's the best of our knowledge that he was showing no signs. Ding anything untoward indeed was quite the reverse. And that's obviously is a problem. It's not clear whether he was genuinely trying to reform and then suddenly reverted or whether he always was concealing his true intense and just waited until he was given this opportunity of coming to London. A carry it out. So how do they try to keep a safe in these ever. Changing strategies used by terrorists. How did he keep ahead of them? Well I think obviously one answer in in this case. What's particularly frustrating? I think for those in M I. Five and police release is that they caught this man once involved in a series very very serious plot he was in prison. He was originally given an indeterminate sentence. which would have required him to have received parole board sanction before he was ever released in May have kept him in prison for longer over that changes result of a court of appeal ruling? Sofer in one one sense. They did their job. They caught a dangerous person and then he's back on the streets in a problem. So there is an issue there about how long people serve and that obviously overseas being part of the political discourse over the last twenty four hours when people are out which most people eventually will come out is then a question of prioritizing and of course what we see is what the other people what the risk is of the other people that are monitoring the three thousand active subjects of interest is another twenty ninety thousand also so called close objects of interest roughly speaking and so. There's a lot of people who potentially could pose a threat and of course there a active plots underway. Unfortunately all the time and so. That's where they dedicate their resource if they had more resource theoretically they could do a bit more. Oh but actually unless you WANNA go down. The road of having thousands of people pursued twenty four hours a day by law enforcement is an spies and so on then. You can't possibly again have a fail safe system of trying to detect when somebody's going to do something so simple when Addo the names names and faces of the two victims of this attack. I think there's something that just adds to the tragedy. These were too young people university graduates. Let's who were walking to help. Offenders is very sad outcome. Isn't it that those people who believe in us and achieve success mean of course one of the points points is that it does achieve success and this scheme appears to being reasonably successful but as with all schemes. It can't it can't be one hundred percent successful and light to be one hundred percent successful there will always be people who don't respond or whatever and as I say may be the case that he was responding and then suddenly something has happened. That's flipped him back into a different direction. We just don't know that but they're obviously all people who have been through that scheme and others who have successfully reintegrated ultimately for anybody who is is going to come out that has to be the the right approach to try to find ways to reintegrate them to divert them from what they were doing to doing. Something more constructive and nothing. Of course it's been documented. Hasn't let one or two of those who rushed to the onto the bridge to try to stop. Further attacks were indeed part of that cohort of free debt. Free Defenders who were trying to rehabilitate themselves so courage no credit to them and that's an example. Perhaps of people who've done unbound things doing the right thing so we don't give up no another thing we ever should do.

"boris johnson jeremy corbyn" Discussed on Coffee House Shots
"Hello and welcome to coffee. Shot spectators daily in these days. David unto two weeks weeks now until polling day and the Tories are still in the lead and people this week which got Westminster. Very excited suggested the Tories had there been an election this this week. We've won a majority in the region of sixty eight however as phrases hasn't as Telegraph column as we discuss on this podcast. There was still plenty of time for the Tories to blow it and there are some early signs as if you look at the days ahead that there are some obstacles they are going to have to and we will now go free. There's various ones but I think to begin with. That's just took fast about Bruce. Johnson and television appearances and scrutiny. Now openly on Thursday night we had a situation from abortions did not do the channel climate leaders debate instead. The Tories did organize a stunt of the rain. which went some way too distracting from this by sending Michael Grove data trying to get onto the stage not being allowed to do so and now there's another on about whether or not? Boris Johnson is going to face Andrew. Neil in the one to one lead interviews interviews every other mainly has agreed to this. And there's some talk that Berge can be bought from gay on the Angie safer until he agrees to this phrase raise. It has a slight with a twenty seventeen. Doesn't it in terms of Theresa. May's reluctance to go on. Various stages do set piece events. Boris Johnson's since allies would say we'll actually know how many things he's done already but if you take them in succession is not the best. Look no it's notes. I mean I do understand logic nick for a prime minister not doing these debates they tend to benefit the Challenger and the prime minister is ahead in the polls he would say look. What do I have to gain by stepping into this arena arena? I can also understand the logic saying look you journalist. You just want these debates for your own entertainment in your TV ratings. It's not to do with democracy. He is just all about you but the thing is we are. We are with these campaigns. The leadership debates have become a fairly big staple elections now over the course of his decades since David Cameron introduced them ten years ago. No so far. We've seen leaders debates. I haven't been that eliminating but we had the one to one interview and Renew Jeremy Corbyn Andrew Nicholas Sturgeon that were lot more illuminating allowed for follow up questions wherever leaders will through through the mincer. And it's always interesting to see how they fare. It looks a little bit cowardly. I'm afraid to save for Boris Johnson. To say okay let Corbin go through that Minster. Let Nicholas George. But I am not going to do. It's because I just didn't fancy it and the risk is that it can lead to the impression that you're taking the election victory for granted that you are adopting a safety first strategy and that you don't really think you've got to go out there to earn the votes of the people who are thinking thinking of you to support. IMA general election. The risk is that could backfire embarrassed that he looks lazy for looks complacent and he looks as if he's afraid of offer scrutiny. Rivals subjected themselves to James During the leadership contest. Boris Johnson did have a one on one interview. Angie Neal he still became came leader at Torrey Party and prime minister. So what's the difference in approach here. I think he was scheduled quite late in the process off. Most of the post-war it's out but I think he should do the interview for the simple reason this which is both Jeremy Corbyn and Nicholas Sturgeon had a tough time holding tweet but it was much less bound for Nicholas version than it was Jeremy Corbyn cushy made not perfect but much better fister defending her position and and then he wanted to be promised with United Kingdom. You'll be confident that you can get a half an hour interview defending you'll positions on a whole series issues. I mean these half an now in twos expose in a way. Were leaders debate. Don't because they allow forensic follow ups is weakness in position. You couldn't watch the android into into Nicholas Sturgeon and not. Come away from it thinking the S&P don't really have a proper answer to for currency question. You can watch animals into Jeremy Kuban. No come away the whole series the Ford about the fact that Germany doesn't seem to realize that government bonds government debt. But he seems deeply confused about what he would do a situation where you can take out what you could potentially take out the leader of terrorist groups such as Islamic state and that he he doesn't point you obviously doesn't really realize the scale and the gravity of the problem that we talked about Anti Semitism awesome. News is how the Rings not apologize but he denied that the problem has got worse since he became leader. I think Boris Johnson should be confident that he he is standing on a decent decent a pretty decent perspectives to become prime minister. And the only thing you can defend that perspectives in a half an hour or two and tonight we will not be seeing Boris Johnson on our television screens either but this is a preplanned non-attendance in the BBC's multi-party debate and you pay labour and the Tories sending on representatives who you need the Kuban Johnson's. Rebecca Long Baby Food Labor anniversary soon. ACT The conservatives James because leaders are not involved in this it does feel as though this is is perhaps less high stakes but you think there is still important in a debate like this for the Tories and is holding the line. There are so many parties in this he did in. The sense is going to be difficult for anyone to really is home to win a seven way debate similar similarly if we the other night the the Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn it was quite scrappy because of the format. I mean this is going to be even crappier because you're going to have seven people trying to speak up and make their case that points. I think the a big event is that is this time next week when we have the final. Boris Johnson. Jeremy Corbyn head to head debate on the BBC of the remaining TV debate as indefeasibly. Yeah that is the big the big moment say phrase of what else can go wrong. In the time we have left because he looked that Emma peephole this week yes yes. The Tories strategy in the mountains north seems to be paying off in winning some of these seats but the fractions at tiny as you look at some of these percentages one percent hair in that could really change a labor. She GonNa take these seats now. Professor Joan Curtis is that he thinks Arizona and is chance at being at Labor majority. But that's not talking about a Labor minority government propped up by SMP. Well it's funny. How often near zero percent? Chances Come true. I remember in twenty 2016 Princeton University. This model which is had predicted the two thousand twelve. US presidential election correctly and therefore there was a one percent chance of Donald Trump winning which he did Vernon Twenty fifteen. You had populous. Who came along with with what? They called the predictor. Not just an opinion pollster. They said it was lots of socio. Economic mkx data plugged into it. And they calculate your abilities to a fraction of a decimal point so you would have said zero point. Five percent chance of David Ever Cameron winning a majority a couple of weeks later. And that's exactly what he did so I think we ought to remember that opinion. Pollsters are still trying to adjust adjust to the new voting patterns were seeing on both sides of the Atlantic and until they get at least two elections right. I think we should all be rather cautious about their claims to have invented new technology. That can get the next election right and in fact during the seven days it took you. You got to do this. Pools the Tory lead went down by. I think sixteen seats. They had to knock off until they got to sixty eight. It doesn't take that much more of this trend continuing for the Tour de Majority to evaporate and slip through the prime minister's fingers quite quickly Jamison in response to this. What do you think the Conservative's strategy for the final part of the campaign is going to be doubling down or is it trying to actually change the pivot or pivoting different approach? Anything's everything's trying to make sure people too so I mean the first bit of us. Russia is desperate attempt to get Donald Trump. Not to say anything on his visit. Here today are very telling the boy shorts in this morning was basically saying to Donald Trump. Please stay out of our election. Remember how Barack Obama's intervention in two thousand sixteen referendum campaign backfire. I mean this was very public. Diplomacy please please. Don't say anything I I mean to feed them. We noticed that he was developing campaign cold. which could be the best defense given trump's Germanophobia against trump trying to get too close to the NATO summit offering the Tory message? The campaign is going to be we've gotTA GET Brexit. Don's country can move forward. That was a female surprising. Exactly the vows the theme of their press conference today and also it's going to be very like two thousand fifteen and this is where the you Goalpara. It provides them a problem which is going to be. It's I've Ashura hung parliament and if it's a hung parliament it's going to be the scholars nationalist calling the shots. Do you want that. I think we're GONNA see those. These two messages driven home relentlessly in the final week get brexit. Done is enough though. I mean sure that we never the BREXIT party voters. But what if they've really squeeze he's as much as they're going to add to that particular action and that right now as twenty seventeen people were thinking of domestic questions and finding which recent of much to say because I think they have have a decent argument but if next year is about another referendum. You won't get. I mean the twenty messages at its strongest when it's get brexit done so we can do X. Files Not oh hearing much of excellent point manifesto and say will would all you panting Steve because it has been but I've asked remarkable for its lack of ambition in many areas. Though I think the reason the manifest they seem so ambitious is exam done quite a lot in the first hundred days on an H.. Schools funding all. Those things. I think is interesting is wealth remembering how how the narrative changes which is a few weeks ago. Everyone was talking about. How can a fiscally reckless the Tories were? We've always big spending commitments now. Everyone's run saint by very ambitious in porn is because Labor's commitments all so bold so out there. Everything else pales in comparison Fraser.

"boris johnson jeremy corbyn" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing
"The briefing with me Andrew Muller last night in the UK it hosted the first leaders debate of the current general election pitting Prime Minister Boris Johnson against opposition. positionally to Jeremy Corbyn what resulted was not a great advertisement for it. Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn or democratic experiment. In general indeed the most interesting aspect of the evening might have been the shabby deceit conducted on social media by the Conservative Party. Press Office which rebranded itself on twitter as fact check UK UK. You may take a wild guess. As to which of the candidates it proclaimed the debates winna. This old prompted an amount of quite merited uproar and Arguably Lodger amount of mockery but also an interesting question either one of whether actual fact check websites. Help us all that much. One joined with more budge on rental chief political commentator with the independent John First of all if we look at the Conservative Party press offices Shenanigans of last night. How scandalous worthy? Well I mean I'm unless upset about the new policy because I already knew what stood for so I mean as as this twitter account still bill was called C. C. H. Q.. Press I immediately knew what it was. I knew it was stood for conservative campaign headquarters but I understand that most people people would know that so it was it. was misleading in in that sense although I clicked on it it says it says what it is but so a political parties are always trying to rebut a so-called fact check their opponents statements. So I didn't didn't see I didn't say anything particularly wrong wrong with it but you know they've they've taken it on and apologized so that should that should be the end of it but I mean Labor abor managing to keep it going morning. I mean we. We've all Ju- acknowledgement that. It's very easy to be seduced by the idea that we are being manipulated by brilliant strategic thinkers playing twenty-seven dimensional chess is that what's actually going on here or is it likely that somebody at C. C. H. Q.. Had Oh you slightly silly idea and sort of ran without thinking at all the way through the exactly I'll be it's an extension of what the Liberal Party's always do uh which is try to cancel each other's propaganda and that's that is normal politics. I don't think anybody intended to deceive people by by changing the changing the branding of it. I think they were if anything it was. It was sort of joke about the the proliferation of these Fact checking websites which Dr a very good thing I think. Generally the only problem with this one was. This wasn't immediately obvious everyone although it was it was was immediately spotted by by by people on twitter and and condemned so it didn't work in the account actually has fewer follow as I. Oh I do on twitter. I mean I don't want to boast is not is not as if is Ebay top-selling newspaper or anything. It's is a minor spat in a in a small part of social media web sphere. Let's move off the minus bath onto the biggest subject of fact checking websites nights There are as you quite correctly. mentioned a periphery of them. Does that verge on becoming a problem in itself. Do we just end up in not feedback loop where people could decide which fact check websites suit their already established view of the world. I think there are few that That are are known untrustworthy full fact which is a which is a very good outfit Which provides side's very much independent unbiased information channel? Four fact check is attached channel. Four News News which some people might not trust I mean they did have a little spat with the Conservative Party. Recently but I mean generally I think I I think the concept is a good one and as long as people look. How for the occasional sort of branding hiccup with with conservatives and and I think there are very good thing not disputing that in itself but do they actually make a difference. which is I guess to ask? Ask The people likely to look at a fact. Check website likeliest to be the last people who need to eat people who are actually open to having their opinions opinions contradicted. That's that's a very good point. I know almost philosophical point in a lot of people look for information which reinforces this is. The prejudice is online. They're not really liable to be insurance by fact websites but I look I look and if if there is a controversial argument going on You know what fact says about how spending all all or or or education is something that is quite easy to look up and and check and therefore you can immediately get engaged in an online a debate about it and although that's not going to influence people who've already made up their minds I mean they're all there are people out there who are persuadable and I think fancheng websites do help. NOPE keep the debate. Relatively honest do they suffer it all from the fact that and there will be a website can move with extraordinary speed and can be updated very quickly. We are living in a world especially on the shore of the Atlantic in which the dominant political figure. This is president trump and prime minister. Boris Johnson they have become famous Just spouting so much obvious nonsense so quickly so prolifically the by the time anybody can. Actually he say hang on a second. That wasn't actually right. They've moved onto something else. And the veracity of what they may or may not have said gets completely lost. I I think that's right though because I mean how does either Boris Johnson have this reputation for being being careless or facts except that in people keep pointing out that. He's got something wrong so I'm GonNa do think people take what he has say with large pinch of salt. He did get laughed at by the studio audience in that TV debate last night a couple of times just by making some of his is more ridiculous assertions. I mean there was. There was one question which was is truth important in politics and obviously everybody knew what that meant and He doesn't get away with it. Generally I mean people people who who like him like the general drift of his policy. But they they they. They know that when he said we're going to get out of the European Union on the thirty first of October. They know that hasn't happened. Is there a bigger problem problem. Then that all media not just new media but old meteors. Well hasn't quite figured out how to cope with the embarrassed politician because there was a time and it really wasn't so long ago when a politician would be mortified being having caught out in telling an obvious walker by the media and would quite often at least have the the good grace to pretend to be embarrassed but if you have politicians and again Boris Johnson Donald Trump. They very different creatures in many respects. Do both have this about them. They just seem really not to care. Well I think I think you're right and I think there is a that. That is a problem that the media is wising coming up to and in particular we saw it in the two thousand sixteen referendum campaign when when the leave campaign put a figure on the side of the bus which they knew perfectly well it was not true and enjoy having remain as jump at Danny ethnic indignation pointing out that. It wasn't true and drawing attention to one of their strong campaigning. Themes that is a problem. The media hasn't quite grappled with but the idea that either politicians the not always entirely straightforward. The truth is is is not a new one. I mean I do remember the Labor. The Labor Party. Tony Blair actually said that The Conservatives are going to get rid of the state pension in nineteen ninety-seven. I mean that wasn't true and politicians have always always been sadly shameless about that kind of thing Joan rental. Thank you very much for joining us. You're listening to the briefing on monocle.

"Joined today by Russia analyst Stephen De L. and the author journalist Terry Stephanie and we'll start in Hong Kong with a long field climactic confrontation between protesters and security forces. Seems seems to have not quite happened yet. A standoff has been occurring between police and protesters who have occupied Hong Kong Polytechnic University. This particular battle. Oh has been one of the. Most violent demonstrations which have beset Hong Kong for the last several months. Protesters have deployed Molotov cocktails and bows and arrows against police. Who responded with tear gas and rubber bullets? Stephen we will start with the eternal question which is is Beijing just going to carry on waiting this out. I I doubt it Now I'm old enough to remember what happened in Tiananmen Square. Ninety nine thousand nine but actually to have been Work I wasn't there but I mean I was working at the BBC. AL is covering what was happening elsewhere in eastern Europe when we kept a close eye on that as well and I remember saying someone on the third of June nine hundred thousand nine this this could all end in tears and of course on the night of the third fourth that they sent in the troops Given the kind of system come Communist this China has I can't see that they can allow this to go on and I can see a a a a gradual buildup And the fact that that you know the police seem to have been allowed to act without any comeback at all. I mean the you know they're they're being filmed. That didn't seem to be worried about in film was he's home being shot at point blank range of protesters being beaten. And so on that you know they they seem to have no No worries about this at all as if there's not we're GONNA be any comeback on them And that suggests a build up to a point where China may well turn around and say well. We don't care what the rest of the world says. Hong Kong is part of China and We're going to keep it that way. In which case they could send in troops so I think there is still a buildup going on and I find it very worrying Terry on that subject of the apparent apparent Abandoned with which Hong Kong police are increasingly. Acting in. Stephen is quite right to pointed out that they they are getting increasingly rough and increasingly indiscriminate There doesn't appear to be any official restraint on that but to what extent do we overlook the human factor in a situation like this. This is not to excuse the the behavior of Hong Kong police or indeed any police when they exact outside their remit but these are people by now who are physically and psychologically exhausted. Yes yes I think if you see. Reports from in particular impact on on these students who are trapped inside the university. There's tear gas water cannon. You know it's not in thirty thirty eight. People were wounded over during Sunday night. So you know lots of people and you hear from people trying to get the word out there saying yeah exactly that they all they are exhausted. They've even been some really worrying comments student saying look. We're we're we're prepared to give our lives in this cause And you know obviously nobody want that to happen but you think the you know the more and more that The protesters feel literally. They are literally under siege. The the less and less likely they are to to want to stand down and there seems to be no kind of process I mean they put demands for what they wanted. This seems to be no kind of negotiation. And in the meantime Hong Kong is being In suffering real problems for this I mean if you look at the economy started to contract the tunnel's closed roads are closed. Schools have been closed. And there's even a threat now. The local elections will be cancelled visibly likely to make the protesters even more cross surgery. It just seemed to be a situation. That's is escalating on the subject of Esscalation relations. Stephen Have we are we approaching. Have we past the point. which which often occurs in similar situations at which the the violence starts to feed on itself itself everybody on both sides kind of loses track of what the protests were about in the first place and especially Terry quite rightly points out that people have been injured? Some MM seriously that becomes a self perpetuating thing once people start to think well people have been hurt in this 'cause therefore the cause must be pursued. I'm afraid it does Also given the the the focus of the protests at the moment is coming from students Always rely I own the fact that young people think it's you know I can go in and they can say things like you know what I'm prepared to die for this and so on because they don't believe they will And similarly here you've got students and again if I can go back to nine hundred eighty nine and channel men those were student protests and the students who who thought that you know. They don't have such life experience. I think life can only be better and we let's protest and we'll get it better And they don't really understand. I think the threat to themselves even when they see all this violence around them. It's always going to happen to someone else. Thank is often an element of that and so they I think you know. They don't seem to be backing down the country they they are getting more and as we say the police nice to I mean that their actions are appalling one an interesting point that I noted was that apparently a lot of the police have been heard speaking mandarin to each other as opposed to Cantonese which most people speak in Hong Kong so are these police have been drafted in from mainland China. which is is that the kind of the thin end of a wedge It reminded me of when the summer when there was big demonstrations in In Moscow which didn't go far this of course but there were big demonstrations and the police acting getting. There were often very difficult to find a policeman in Moscow whose from Moscow then normally they come in because they they get a better life living there and so they will do as they're told similarly are these he's Mainland Chinese police who are now in in Hong Kong or who've been living in Hong Kong like the the the the the system there An prepared to to fight to keep to keep it themselves. So you've got they're very high stakes on both sides Terry. We did see after a fashion over the weekend. Chinese soldiers just deployed in the streets of Hong Kong. This was people's Liberation Army soldiers leaving their barracks to help clean up. Is that just well. I mean there's a number of ways I used to look at that. It might have been sold as leaving their barracks to help clean up It might of been a warning of further escalation might have been kind of a PRI exercise. Yeah I think I probably tend towards The second of those that you know that this is deliberate. We're reminding you that we are here. I mean named remember the earlier on in these protests we saw images from China of a troops in a big Football Stadium. I think it was and those. There's images whatever. It was a kind of a big in a just so you don't forget we are here and although we're trying to make it look like we're just helping you nicely We don't we don't have to play so nice I would think probably Probably one of the main factor that I mean just going back to what we were saying on your. I think we can't forget. The students are not probably analyzing this in geopolitical equal terms as the role of China be. What's the rest of the world's reaction going to be? They just think they're in the right and to a large extent they are. You know they say we would like more democracy. And we don't want to have people extradited to China. We don't entirely want to be run by China. And maybe we should give Moore the benefit of the downs in the same way that we did to protestors in Whether it was eighty-nine Chinaman Square. They may get crushed quite literally by geopolitics. But let's give them a shout therese. DSP ESPN Stephen. Do back with more from both in just a moment. But first here's Monaco's Daniel Beach with some of the other stories. We're following today. Thank you Andrew. Several protesters have been arrested while trying to run from a Hong Kong University campus surrounded by police a group of around one hundred people trying to leave the Polytechnic University but were met with tear gas and rubber bullets. This follows a violent standoff with police. Basic provisions have been flown to the Bolivian capital Lopez amid reports of food and fuel shortages in that country intrigue. The move is an attempt to bypass road blockades which have been erected by supporters of former president. Evo Morales who resigned earlier this month before seeking asylum in Mexico and US billionaire. Michael Bloomberg has apologized for backing. New York's stop and Frisk Policy Bloomberg who served as the city's mayor and who S. made moves towards running as a presidential candidate said the controversial policy wrongly targeted black and Latino residents. Those are some of the news headlines. We're following now back to you. Andrew Thank you Daniel Listening to Molecules House view here with me. Entry Miller along with Terry Stephanie. And Stephen Deal well let's look now at the UK currently subjecting itself off to its third general election. In the last four years that fixed term parliaments act of two thousand eleven really has hit the ground running the Sheffield set piece of this week is tomorrow's this debate between Prime Minister. Boris Johnson opposition leader. Jeremy Corbyn who are apparently the best that a wealthy and educated and advanced country of sixty six million people can do. ooh there are those who believe this cost should be expanded. The Liberal Democrats and the Scottish National Party have mounted a legal challenge to get their leaders onto the stage as well terry the. SNP are quite an odd case. Here they lead doesn't sit in the Commons they don't contest seats in England. And therefore if we want end up governing the country Jo Swinson from the Liberal Democrats should she be included. I think the main reason that people. It's it's difficult because as you say if you start to include some of the smaller parties then you probably have to include the rest if you can do in terms of course a small party much smaller party than they once were but they are contesting most of the seats if you bring in the SNP then the argument would probably go that you have to bring implied camry in. Do you have to bring in the BREXIT party who is standing in approximately half the seats. Even though they've got sort of vanishingly small chance of leader standing in any of them. So who who precisely the Do you talk to I think one of the reasons the Liberal Democrats in particular would like to be part of this debate is probably the hope for. What was the nick? Clegg effect effect in two thousand ten so in those mania reliably informed as it was known inside the Liberal Democrats Clicks to see in every people those of us remember such needs things Remember that Nick. Clegg came on in in the two thousand ten election when he had the other party. Leaders can't repeatedly saying I agree with Nick and I think there is that sort of slight worry from the two largest parties that if you say you've got burst Johnson. You've got Jeremy Corbyn. Both of whom aroused strong musty. Pretty much across the board in their own parties as well as in the opposing parties. If you have either one or two quite reason nice reasonable sounding Scottish women on the panel with them. That people are going to get here. This is an alternative right now. Maybe maybe if I'm in England or Wales Northern Ireland I can't vote for Nichola Sturgeon Convict for her nephew in Scotland directly. But you can vote for candidates then it it might. It might show them up. I mean it Stephen is that basically. Why the Liberal Democrat so keen to get Jo Swinson on the stage? It's partly that fact that they can't be anybody in this country who hasn't already made up their mind about Boris Johnson. Jeremy Corbyn and as polling suggests they quite likely to have made it up in the negative. And you can. Well imagine that if you put I mean it's not just as Terry says a a a a reasonable sounding Scottish woman..

All in on abolishing brexit revoke article fifty no second referendum. None of that. We're not doing. We're just pulling the plug on Mrs Mad at isn't going to work is that do you think a sitting coming across as a a sincere principle or is do you think there's a recognition ignition among the voters that that's kind of what they had to do. Because that's the only position that was left between the conservative saying full steam ahead get brexit done labor saying probably probably sort of but there'll be a deal in another vote or something. There wasn't really another wasn't really another line to choose was the politically. It was the sensible things to she cited the only route available to them to stay distinct. IGT think voters Do CNC obsession because it actually is insane position. Democrats hate BREXIT REX and would like to stop it and if they win election they were stopping that he's actually what the vast majority of the party thinks so. I think the lesseps was where the Liberal Democrats were previously Lee. Where not so much in the last few years a second referendum? But it's not that long ago Liberal Democrats were arguing for referendum on Europe. They wanted them every halt saying. Oh well we probably hopefully should have one because they wanted to actually keep hold of you guys were saying earlier because they wanted to keep podavur skeptic voters Liberal Democrats found themselves saying these circumstances in which we think think should be a referendum on Europe. Just they win seats. In South West of England quite eurosceptic so as well number one of the things coalition where circumstances have forced them to actually for political reasons. Actually Hoda position is much more sincerely where they actually lined. I think there are no for campaigning purposes. They're in a much better position. Is there at shape to sell this stuff. What they actually think and stops of hedging hedging? What they're saying depending on what seat they're standing in their much more strident and confident sounding partying? They once where I think on the to return to that subject of the squeeze and you mentioned that the two parties are led by two extremely polarizing men in Boris Johnson. And Jeremy Corbyn the two Meja parties that is do you get the sense in terms of this election Jo Swinson. WHO's not been leader of the liptons? All that long is recognized enough that basically speaking enough voters even know who she is. The Liberal Democrat leaders never recognize enough and even not not even Donald Kennedy appropriate to most high profile ones had to be the leader for very long periods of time for their noticed a pro at several election cycles the only other person sneeze managed to break through in any form. Was Nick Clegg. Because the Conservative Party agreed to have a freeway debate including Nick Lake which the whole click mania thing was because all all of a sudden people watching on. TV somebody in a national debate going up against Prime Ministerial candidate. Who they didn't know he was? This guy seems quite impressive. And and that was where the host of the momentum of that election victims came from. That's what Joe Twins so desperate to get involved next question. How important is it just in terms of electioneering and to get her opposite? Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn to allow voters to make a comparison. I think he's hugely important. If live damage when big break free I mean. You can't just assume a big break. Free will happen. But the fact is that people have made their minds up at Jimmy. Cobaine Boris Johnson Eliza. Lotta people have not made their minds up about Jo Swinson because they don't know anything about Jo Swinson. If you get her in a a national debate they will be allowed chunk of people who see and well liked her. They just don't miss by the law of averages we'll have to happen. Let alone as good because I think she could be in that kind of format so huge important I think if they want to make the big sweeping bright crew there needs to be some kind of national moment otherwise much more about the long haul it will be Jo Swinson become a known figure in British politics among most normal voters after a couple of actions. It's just it's the way it works. You have to fight to be noticed Shawn Kemp. Thanks as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing the talk.

I'm initiative Astana today and focus is the NHS up for sale in the NHL is famous across the world as a state owned and state run health system But there are private companies involved in it. When did that begin although Labor now under Jeremy Corbyn Joe McDonnell are seeking grit political capital title on political trouble for Johnson? Co about privatizing. Anna's yes it was actually their party. The Labor Party that took more substantial steps towards introducing private companies. Dennis Campbell is health policy editor for the Guardian and The Observer. I was on a Tony Blair. In the early noughties two thousand and two three in response is too large numbers of people winning longtime for planned operations. Things like a cataract-removal a hernia repair a new hip knee. Being something I've got the waiting lists have come down. Dramatically treatment for things like heart disease and cancer completely transform. The Blair government issued a number of contracts. What we're called? Is Independent sector treatment. Centers they were basically contracts for privately. Run medical facilities to do lots and lots of these operations to get the politically unacceptable witness. Stunt okay so that happened under new Labour in two thousand and ten. The Tories came to power. It is only three letters long long. Letters live hopes David Cameron said his priority was an H. S.. The narrative is that the Tories allowed creeping privatization beyond what we'd seen before that is that true that's right. It's true that the amount of money going to private companies has been going up every year here for the last five or six years. At least it's very hard to get absolutely exact figures of this. The Department of Health Sound. You'll come out every July. Show that in twenty any fourteen fifteen it was eight point seven billion and last year twenty. It nineteen had gone up to nine point two billion title of what that's out of a total one hundred twenty five billion in England last year a knots about seven percent of the budget just in the last few days The Guardian has reported that the number of the patients who then a chess has paid for to be operated on in private hostels in England has pretty much doubled since the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten from roughly the three hundred thousand people a year to over six hundred thousand people a year. I'm what are the arguments that driving up private provision. Well the arguments are that the Anna chess as we see almost every day on the news visibly cannot cope with the demands. Being placed upon demands for energy has Kara going up to four five six seven percent a year then a chest budget and staffing and capacitor things in terms of operating theatres and so on is not keeping pace with that therefore increasingly energy trust in England are having having to do a little deals with local private hostels to take on fifty patients here under patient. There undo them to keep their own individual trust witting lists done. You'll also have the for the government politically difficult reality that the total number of people waiting in England for a planned knowledge and Operation Hospital is now over four point four million people out as Salat so one in every fifteen people in England is waiting for an operation met in. We're waiting for many many many months sometimes over six months and occasionally over a year therefore the private private sector is back in the space where increasingly winning contracts now because the concourse and. Why didn't they spend that taxpayer? Money on increasing their own resources rather than on private companies because the main thing chess lacks staff doctors nurses particularly. They all take time to train on one of the signal failures of the government signal failures in recent sneers towards the NFL has been a catastrophic loss of focus on the workforce problem. And yet it's taken them for too long to realize the scale of the problem on the nature of the problem means that ten years Trinity Dr Three or four years to in Midwife that it takes ages to turn that ship around here are the companies awarded contracts. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of private companies that provide healthcare on a smaller large-scale to the an England probably the best known The we are. The Guardian of focused on a lot in recent in years is version. Care One of Richard Branson's companies eight at the last count hard more than four hundred different contracts to provide different sorts of of care and different sorts services so then the private hustle group spar hospitals They they do quite a lot of these operations. So there's there's a vast array most of them are not names that are known to the to the public. Some them operate on Innova localised basis on this very few those kind of big big companies okay so that's the current state of play. What has the impact been on Kerr? So in truth it's a mixed picture. That'd be unfair to suggest all privately provided healthcare is a perk. It's definitely not quite a little bit. Services that are provided are run perfectly adequately adequately there are no problems raised about them by patients by regulators by stop groups anything but we have seen some significant problems. There's a long and and sorry history of private providers winning contracts from NHS organizations usually by undercutting them in price to quite a large degree and then finding surprise surprise of the count- provide the quality of care in the West expected on either. Having the contract taken can wife them or sometimes shively how contract back because they can't deliver it properly because healthcare is expensive and complicated. It's not an easy thing to make money out of several years ago on the south coast of England company called Co performer. One Country to provide a non urgent patient transport services taking people requiring health care to and from from Hustle. Appointments not kind of sexy stuff not having blue lights not the stuff of TV dramas but really really important for the patients and their and their and their families on the huge undercut the local energy service have been doing it for years and years on the call. The service went to rack and ruin literally almost from day. One cancer patients weren't being taken in for their operations. Kidney patients weren't going into Alice's also says weren't turning up. There was a huge outcry and rightly they lost the contract now. ofter seven months of misery. The controversial company is to be stripped of his contract. All of Sussex Care Commissioning groups agreeing. CELESTICA has been quite right a lot of examples like that and that's physical health. But the private sector's being heavily. Used in mental health services isn't it. There's a real emerging problem not about privately funded inpatient mental healthcare since the start of twenty. Seventeen the care called the commission. The chess regulator in England has issued very critical reports under put into special measures. No fewer than thirty different private mental health hospitals in England. Thirty in less than three years on private companies are making. I think it's about one. And a half billion pounds. A year of Energy has budget goes to proudly provided mental health care. That's incredibly worrying worrying. I mean half. The government acknowledged these problems. Do they accept privatization. May Be to blame have they done anything to rein in what's interesting about. What s prioritization? As politically shoe nar is that certainly theresa. May's government accepted publicly in detail. The need to greatly rule back privatization position of chess care in England and recently Anna Chessington produce the legislative proposals the basis for a bill to unwind a lot of the increased competition competition outsourcing that flowed from the underlying health and social care. Act Back in twenty twelve some clear yet whether Boris Johnson has the same desire that treasa mated to roll this back. Would you rule light expanding the use of the private sector in the house service. We are putting thirty. Four billion didn't few. BBC's lower couldn't bargain. She asked him. Would you continue the extension privatization and and she has unsurprisingly to me. He didn't say no what I what I will tell. You have coasted dentists optometrists and so on who. who was? That's interesting because it's pretty clear to me that the Tories worry about the NHS as an issue they know that voters really care about it and they know that they have historically got a bad reputation. TATION destroy I mean. Members of the public and staff have confronted. Boris Johnson on. His endless hospital visits Chris. Coach's player Dominic Cummings the Tories. Chief strategist strategist has been previously filled. Basically suggesting that a lot of Tory. MP's don't care about the NHL. Was One of the core problems of the Tory party brand going back decades. Yes people think by the way and I think most people are right. The Tory party is lone likely basically. Don't care about people like me so they're trying to show that they do care about this but is it about perception rather than reality. So Energy has privatization politically. It's tricky particularly for the Tories for whom it appears to be toxic recently just last week. The guarding got hold of a leaked copy of a a set of instructions. A handbook in effect.

"Historic white of crown to dissolve parliament whenever she wanted that's been overtaken by statute and one of the cleverest points which came out of the advocacy you have a case was on behalf of John Major by his balanced with gone. Qc who also used to impede and he said the effect of the solution is to pass things back to the electorate so that is a good reason why shouldn't have been usually view but the effective appropriation is in favor of the executive and that means. There's every reason to review of courts now Jane. This is probably the most difficult question out of all of this. We've hunt hunt the hearing this week. The court is now mulling over its decision expected to hear it early next week. There's talk about Tuesday morning with C. When it emerges based on everything you've heard and everything that's been said. What's your sense on. What might come out of all this well. I think it's quite possible. Government could lose. That's my sense of it. When when these cases I came to the high school I did see the point about justiciability. This is not a matter for the courts but I think given the fact that parliament's been shut down and silenced an effectively the democratically-elected. MP's the business of parliament stops. I can see why the courts would see this as just issue a won't you go over that big hurdle then. I think he's quite easy to stall inferring and looking at motivation and things like that so I think the justiciability hurdle at the start of this process was quite high and I think they've probably declared this week. That seems to be the main point thing so if that happens David and we get this ruling and the Supreme Court won't can it actually do just in the prospects of a case I I think it's far too close to call but if it is found in the favor of claimants Ben Record has to do something. This is where it becomes incredibly quickey very quickly. There were certain things courts can do one thing they can do quoting junctions and other thing they can do a good declarations visible things they can do. What should the could do if it finds in favor of challenges well at bottom a declaration. A statement of something law for unlawful panic was really aiming. Mingfu isn't his submissions. He realizes Judy's don't want to actually become too political so essentially he's inviting the courts to say fat prorogation was unlawful awful why there's nothing good reasons for one for purpose then just basically passing it back to parliament and government to sort out amongst themselves else. I can see being attractive at the problem is is what happens if government an parliament. Dentsu at out among themselves and that might require a court in make some some sort of injunction a mandate we order will occur civil of some kind but Jodie's ruined not want to do that easily if the court comes out in favour if a challenge is is spent is going to be a two stage remedy rivers a declaration and then something which lawyers called Liberty to apply which means you can go back to court and get never never remedy if things aren't sorted out between the parties but that set on Dermott surveys ahead too far. I think this case is far too close to call it is a Bonilla's possibilities well that the courts could find this justiciable so they could find that the courts country on it but actually find that Johnson intact unlawfully awfully. It's quite possible that that could happen because again. You've got the government documents but is that enough evidence for them to informative if you look at the judges records on these questions it's quite not even leave guys so you couldn't imagine five six decisions on away which given the fifty to forty eight referendum would be quite fitting circumstances and just finally one last quick point John F. that outcome does coach. I've seen some people on twitter raising as a possibility. This is going to be a big moment for the Supreme Court which which has only existed for ten years and I think as some commentators have set this week this will politicize is the courts no way that we haven't seen before I want is being viewed as something they can have a say okay on if Mister. Johnson tried to poke palm in the future. We'll be straight back. The Supreme Court of Germany Cohen became prime minister. We'd be back to the Supreme Court once again if he tried to send the shot across the bows to politicians. Basically I mean subject to be a way of the Jews sending a shot across the bows to anyone that tries to do this again and saying look. This is just ichapur folks all territory. All of legal commentary are live called commentary but this should not have been a matter for the courts after this patient needs to be able to start Yuki basis and only people can base the Liberal Democrats gathered for that annual party conference in Bournemouth this week and it seemed to be a- all the jolly affair the party another new. MP In the fulmer conservative Sam Gamma who joined at the beginning of the conference they also picked up a new policy of evoking brexit without another referendum the Lib Dem's were posted by two opinion polls that after their conference put them in second place ahead of the Labor Party on the right to be optimistic on with Labor heading to Brighton for its annual jamboree should be worried about this liberal surge McQueen the US down in Bournemouth Four. They just tell us what the mood of the conference was like obviously biking. Sam Game it was a big moment for the party was another. MP someone who was ause administer last year and someone who is very much a key part of David Cameron's modernization project and somebody who in many ways is still a deep conservative. Tiv- I think it's fair to say the atmosphere Bouma quite sort of heady this year because they would affect his coming out of the woodwork from both left left and right and they've had this surge in the polls. They feel that with Jo. Swinson Nicholson leader is so different from both Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn looks attracted to almost anybody who's motorists so that was quite guessing carried away. I felt and boom this although you know one has to give them credit for that that positioning so far on brexit which means that lots and lots of remain is giving up on labor and flocking to them but there was a lot of talk of when we become the government which actually even given that position in these to pose weather in second place. Goodwin was doing some number crunching this morning and he tweeted out that thirty eight MT so for a third party unbelievably difficult to make a major breakthrough and since the near death experiences experiences twenty sixteen light tiny almost imperceptible recovering twenty seventeen if they were back up into a block of Sei's forty fifty sixty. MP's that would be quite considerable recovery but it was lots of talk around about the witnesses I post the post where if you can get yourself up to about twenty six percent in the polls if it's a full way fight this time a very unpredictable lola tall one you can then start to put some really quite dramatic increased number of MP's but it did also I like to get out of hand and as you rightly said they have this controversial new policy which was still work towards the second referendum. That's quite important still but it says a general the election before that happens to stand on a pure revoke platform so that's US hardening of the empty brexit position some people that was a kind of uneasy step to take because claiming a mandate in general election when you could be winning on thirty percent of the vote is okay to then turn a referendum random with fifty two percent believe so there was a certain amount of control policy but you up to mystic types lived them and they all pretty much optimistic because otherwise why would you be them they were saying this is fantastic because it gets the attention at the kind of heat seeking missile that was the phrase to remain voters just have to see whether it works and how it plays out because former father did have dr certain sense of David Steel go back to your constituencies and prepare for government where of course the country's still you know if you put the Greg's Party and the Conservatives together they would still be way ahead in terms of where the Brexit vote as on all of this Miranda and the one thing that struck me. I totally understand why they're coming from on that. Policy Letters Revoke Article Fifteen. I actually think that's where the brexit debate might be heading October because this idea of trying to force an extension delay brexit again. I think MP's might find themselves in a position if they do want to stop a no deal. Boston's does pull the boundaries of the law then revoking article fifty is the only place to be. It's clear yellow red water whatever you want to call it with Labor or not named clearly are now the most pro remained party but a what's that gonna mean for those marginal voters people who are uneasy about brexit but also an easy about overturning it without a democratic event and be. Let's just say Brexit does happen in some form another on October thirty first then. When does that leave the party. That's very interesting. I actually think that you'll second point is being vova. The play the bit because even if brexit happened. I don't think any problems standing on a platform as being the pro Europeans in Britain. I'm not now an active emotionally coherent here and block of people who will probably continue to vote for you so I think that's slightly not such a concern. I think you'll I point is an extremely good one. How confident can they be that. They're not repelling moderate voters by taking this very much more hardline anti brexit stumps. I think the thing is though all politics has changed so much that there have been a couple of academic reports even this week which is showing the older. The country is increasingly polarized on Brexit. You know your identity is now all your lever or all your remain on a lot of other issues still people cluster in the center grounds the argument that if you can pull it off to one one extreme of the brexit polarity whilst being molterer or seen as almost other policy issues it could work for them. Let's face it. We even had Tony Blair this week talking about the decline of the moderate wing of the main parties and how people are being pulled away to them so I think in play play. They've gotta be careful about the language. Jo Swinson shouldn't really be talking about Corbin's trail. I thought that was an era. I don't know what Jim thinks about that but then you have emily thornberry talking about lived under the Taliban policy on Brexit this sort of escalation if the language starting to feel a bit too culture war for my taste so on that not point Jim because what's labor general reaction to what's happened in Bournemouth this week because Labor's breaks position as a referendum in all circumstances with remained aimed versus some form of Brexit on the ballot paper and as Miranda of saying senior Labour figures even those who are very prove a main have been quite critical at the Lib Dem's position. They can't ignore the fact the Lib Dem's have overtaken them now in two opinion polls yet looks highly so Jeremy Cubans Labor is very much under pressure from the Lib Dem's because remember but that we think about eighty percents the lay membership remain we think about seventy five percent labour voters of remain and yet they have a leader who has been a year skeptical cool his life he very half-heartedly campaigned for two thousand sixteen because he thought that was the party expects the oath him but Jeremy Copen and the people around him would love this just be over one way or another and it's quite interesting that yes that post he explained Elliot's up see right. They would have a election than a renegotiation and then they'd have referendum and we know whether they would be in or out and the fact that is hurting my head trying to explain this. When I write about Labor everyday everyday suggests that the average amount of women the street is going to struggle with the clarity on this and yes although there are people John McDonnell and brand kissed on a WHO have have set cast court did they would be remain in those circumstances people in Germany combs office. Are Privately saying well. You know we could get renegotiation that would give us a really good deal with the customs union the Single Market relationship where we would potentially campaign to be brexit party said they are still in the middle and more polarized society becomes comes the more woolly Jeremy Copen looks on the big issue of the day and the massive irony as we will know is the Jeremy Cohen has the strongest views in many ways on no flaws playschool stuff and they have this incredibly radical manifesto incense what they were doing and yet the general public he looks slightly woolly possibly confused East Guy but this is the issue for Labour entering its party conference this weekend in Brighton. The Minister Corbyn wants to talk about all manner of domestic things about how redistribution about taxes about public the things that really matter to him but it looks like once again. It's all going to be about brexit partly because it's the biggest Utah dominate the country but also part is talking about because the Lib Dem's of taking this new position. Nobody a lot of labor. MP's issue feel we need to react to this now. Yes there'll be a few of the things that come out of it. That obviously be Coburn's big speech that Joe McDonnell speech where we're expecting some kind of policy announcements but yeah there's no oh getting away from it that when you look at the motions that have been sentenced by constituency labour parties from around the country there are about ninety on Brexit and the vast first majority of those are trying to push leadership into a more categorically remained position and we will have what they call a compensating me thing. The one lusty went on for six six hours right into the early hours and during that process the leadership will try and resist the members which you may remember is the opposite of what Jeremy Copen used to say when he became leader about market in the party and how he believes in listening to the membership membership should foreign policy forget never really believed that it seems because they will try trying to ignore those eighty-five constituencies and come up with emotion that basically list in the same position so yet the other stuff going on that also be a big debate about Labor's Abbas position on climate change whether to go for Twenty Thirty Zero Carbon target which is twenty is earlier than the government's already quite ambitious talk so yeah..

"We all know that commitment has never been Boris is Johnson strong state but eighth clear he's determined when it comes to crushing his out with Ota Deal Joe Farraj might be Brexit by name but it is very clear that Jeremy Corbyn is Brexit by nature sure a Liberal Democrats majority government will revoke Article V on Day One. It will make it was really interesting speech. You know let them set the expectations relatively low because she's awesome very effective party leader but she's not always been the most exciting speaker but she really ramped up. This is a pre-election speech to get the activists backcombed their constituents assist with five min- Betty say this has got to fight so it was brexit with other policies to lucky environment like things like knife crime. If you're feeling optimistic is this this is talk of something big. There's an election in a few months where they get one hundred. MP's if you're feeling pessimistic this is good as it gets over the weekend. Jason and criticize David Cameron Cameron for cooling the referendum but she's being criticized ourselves for clips been doing the rounds on social media for having the same position in two thousand and eight. I would like to have a referendum on the major show but perhaps more damaging is the criticism we heard from within her party. The last couple of days about the current breakfast position about revoking article fifty snowmen lamb said it's playing with fire and counseling are Hogson stood on this stage and gave very powerful speech opposing now when I go on the doors in London I have not done thousands and thousands of doors in Sunderland people say something to me again and again and I will will it come see this is a phrase that went from our opposition. It's the will of the people. This is the will of the people you're trying to overturn the will of the people now. I disagree awesome and I'll argue back to them some reluctantly that we can make people's vote but the point remains. They're not completely wrong. I don't think that I think we need to bend a little bit. How is the policy going to justify this position with voters on the doorstep. They see it as essentially it's like gamble overall in terms of popularity within the party they had a vote in the conference hall and it was overwhelmingly passed. There is some descent but people are at the very least willing to give them the benefit of doubt over in terms of justifying. Does I mean there's two things one thing is. We are a parliamentary treat democracy. We're not a referendum based so if you win an absolute majority in parliament if you stand in an election saying that is our policies. Mestre manifesto was in black and white and you've got a perfect democratic right to then introduce it the other one is to the kind of slut get out is they would only do that if they want. Jordan parliament which frankly they're not going to their first choice they they say remains a people's second brexit referendum and we've had a lot of talk over the last few days that it will. Democrats could get two hundred seats seats in the next election even two hundred chucker mentioned at one point. I think you might be thought possibly but how realistic okay slats sort of forty two hundred. Baker has been heard times here. What are you talk privately to kind of seen in the Thames. They will say to you kind of forty. Is The base level. If they got below that would be really disappointed and if you think now they'd go eighteen now so that'd be quite a big increase and say beyond that it really really depends if there's a kind of swinson bounce if things go well you know they're currently up to twenty percent in the polls if they go up to twenty five or even twenty eight percent then one hundred or more seats is possible the basically in the modern political world brexit. No one knows there's so many things that could go right and could go wrong and if they were to wait if he seats and find themselves where they were perhaps back in two thousand ten holding the balance of power. Do you think they would go into coalition again and with against with either conservatives or the Labor Party. It's a tricky one because they've been completely adamant. Swinson has has been adamant again and again and again that she will not support either Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn Spam. She said they are unfit to hold the office and even if you ask a would it be a potentially a confidence and supply tight while we don't have a formal deal. She Sang APPs. We will not do it and it is perfectly possible. They will beholding the balance of power. I'm not sure where it goes from that you know it could just be that they try and pressure. Labor into getting rid of Jeremy Corbyn and putting in another leader but you know as the smallest party of the big three might not necessarily have that clock pizza. Thank you speak insists. Thank you very much pleasure. The guardians excellent political team covering all the conferences and the legal challenge to prorogation in the Supreme Court is week full of their work at the GUARDIAN DOT COM coming up the fatal consequences of sand being sold on the black market.
Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn And Dominic Grieve discussed on Coffee House Shots
"I'm joined by cables and James for safe while James. We're expecting a number of resignations this week. We've already on from Sarah Duncan which we will talk about shortly but yesterday Philip Hammond went on the mall showing confirmed that he was going to resign after Theresa May's final Prime Minister's questions he's jumping before he's pushed isn't he in the whiteboard in Boris Johnson's campaign and during the cabinet is it oh no we had Hammond down for John Throw now. He said he won't serve raises. A more serious points about how he has behaved. I mean there's a very difficult question to answer which is which is he was the chancellor when trees I said no deal is better than a bad deal. He was the chance to win all school. Fifty one votes injuries may kept saying that so it does raise a question about whether he was ever actually committed to the policy of a day of government element of which he was a member where he actually meant it. I also think he's behaving in a deeply irresponsible manner because it is quite clear that whatever you think of it Theresa May's with Griffin is not going to Paul sounds comments so you need to ease off rob some kind of concessional compromise to get this thing through and by what he's doing and the interviews he's giving in the European press on his shenanigans in parliament he is basically saying to you. You do is compromise or for any concession because parliament's elements can stop no deal but as rebel dominic grieve says the only way we see Sir stopping ideal is to bring down and it is not clear yet for they have the numbers so he is paradox the actually making no deal more likely I mean the question you need to think about which is which do you think is worse for the British economy in the short even in the short to medium-term. No deal oracle been government. I think it's a fairly strong case that it is a Corbin government. He's also making that more likely I e P regrettable about the way that moment is paving the moment and it is kind of hard not to think that he is goes into his head that he wants to go down in history for something and and he also is driven. I think bar a personal dislike of Boris Johnson I mean they all they are about as different as characters. Come be and I think there is kind of I think you see it's going to be this is undoubtedly going to be a problem for. I want someone Jeez people for them. How does more technocratic mind almost find offensive and so they feel bound by the normal ties of Lords obligation that people would find to a former cabinet according to become Prime Minister K._t.? Philip Hammond is joining the Google could score. Does it become nine on the back benches of <hes> Torian Dominic grieve like David Goal obviously who are very worried about the consequences of no deal exit. Do you think sees himself as being the ringleader of this new group and if not who else I think he seasons I was having a pivotal role play and certainly to people who are involved. Perhaps on various this what's up groups for being proactive and interesting have those speculation but world theresa may might play but that is not seen as a row where you have some really leading from the front at all you might be able to bring them in a backward way whereas I I think when it comes to Philip Hammond he is someone who's very happy to go and bat for it and you see that has multiple media appearances. I think when you look the with squad and is going to be a wide ranging faction in the sense that perhaps you have ron thirty figures who are sympathetic to the coors the coups being to prevent a no deal brexit but they will have different points of high father willing to go so you mentioned Dominic Grieve Dominic Grieve is in a very small number of the squad in the sense he is willing to vote down the government or at least he has said he is in a will to stop. No deal brexit happened has suggested he might be willing to do that. He hasn't said Faucheux but he could laugh will be in the more hardline element say the bulk of the awkward squad so whether <unk> actually property matters most in the day to day running of Boris Johnson's government before you get to what we think he might be that ultimate showdown but you might have a confidence vote is what can they team up on. Now figures like David Gook I think he uh of azan we expect for example Greg Clark. We don't expect him to resign anticipation but will likely not be in the Boris Johnson Cabinet and fluker join this great when it comes to confidence as its deputy FAA supply SA- cutting off supply seems to be a step too far when it comes to finances so the things that they can team up on would be when you look to what Ambrose described as an activist speaker Joe Becker and he saw that last week with their Perot Gang Amendment Dominic grieve came up with that is. Something people feel much more comfortable going for because it feels like a less drastic mechanism so I think that's where this team can come together and when you look within that you also have a Muharan reports you could as as soon as Boris Johnson is appointed as prime minister barring a big shock for you could have Torri M._p.'s defect to the Liberal Democrats. Now that's different element here. Those people here very pro second referendum the anti no deal shoe but it it goes well beyond and I would say the bulk of the Gook squad have voted for Brexit deal many times free times so there is one way for Boris Johnson to almost end his his problem there which is if he can get change if he can get a due to Vatan this group that the not so hard line in their ears majority that they're not gonNA vote for anything. Boris Johnson comes up with but they do need it to be a deal. I've been the Golden Association from those cases right and then which is if you are working. WE'VE DOMINIC GRIEVE STEVE DOMINATE GREAVES AIM is not to prevent no deal is to have a second referendum into how the U._K.. Remain in the European Union and I mean this is actually a real problem for some members of this group which is essentially when when you choose your political allies here it becomes your message risk getting lost. It risks looking what you're joining move dominant grieve in his attempt to stay in the E._U.. Raleigh than trying to prevent is leaving without a deal and that is going to be a major kind of questionable how his group coheres when varies of stress intention put on that will be put on it when a deal okay for example if a deal does come back do the same gamers and then just ingredients as well still vote against the deal because they want a second referendum and remain all always have as spent so arguing that no deal would would be catastrophic that they would feel obliged to vote for a deal. I mean I think this is their difficulties and contradictions within this group Katie. Tell us about Sir Allen Dunkin's resignation so remiss as of this morning the minister was going to resign today expecting the bulk as for Hamilton the anti nausea to as opposed to have the minimum amount of time between the new prime minister taking over and the being a vacancy in your department. Perhaps a vacancy theresa may try and fill it. It seems now we're getting to the shorter time may just be the vacant so Annan Dunkin decided not wait until Wednesday's. He has gone on Monday morning now. I think this is attracted. Criticism for a number of reasons fest off some have suggested. The Alan Duncan hasn't always been the principal character when it comes to the cools attached himself to sue people point to the referendum when he was in talks about joining the board and then in the end decided apparently because he cannot get a certain position by his name to go for remain and that's what people think he's insincere. I think there is a more practical note here which is it may not be specific brief but clearly what's happening right now. In Iran the crisis in the factories May as haven't have Cobra meetings to to be a Foreign Office minister. Dan Ready have one. He was suspended in field -Unding who's quite busy doing the leadership contest exactly the Foreign Secretary Hughes O._T.. Trying to walk away he is getting Steve if he doesn't have his upset tomorrow. It doesn't really paint this picture of government that is taking a situation completely serious. They and I think it was just absence. Idea which is very easy right now. I tried to haunt you paint the Tory party as warring factions when if you want to be the party of you would think that there is a sense that you need to look at your on top of this I thought it was quite interesting as we've seen Greg Hands Jeremy Hunt supporter today take to social media and and say that he does not support preemptive ramp to resignations and he thinks does play into the hands of Jeremy Kuban so I think it's just Boris Johnson supporters who questioning some of the time yeah we've had some comments from people like Hugh Merryman who's Philip Hammons P. P. S. on Westminster unstrap last night saying that the government basically dropped the ball on the Iran Crisis James. Is it the case that this is about how the government relates to trump will try not to relate to trump in closely. I read this government moment was as it so often has been on the trump. Administration was caught between two stools which is once the U._K.. Via Gibraltar had impounded that Iranian tanker it was point clear for there was going to be Iranian retaliatory action of some sort when you consider the soy's of the Royal Navy at the moment is quickly if British flag shipping wants to be protected against retaliation that was going to need to be active cooperation with the U._S. and what appears to have been the case is that there was a hesitancy about going down that route even though the Americans were suggesting it because they didn't want to look like they were signing up to the full gamut of U._S.. Close John Roberts obviously against the Iran nuclear deal which the U._K.. is in favor of home not having that this is a big strategic confusion on the government's behalf which is once you take a decision to impound that tanker then you had to act to protect your own shipping in the most comprehensive way possible and the seizure of his ship on Friday shows that the Royal Navy simply doesn't clearly is not adequate soy's to do that right now and F. was going to need assistance from the U._S.. Which is the largest navy in the world and so I've been there is there is a question here of of how this was handled and I think if it wasn't for the fact that was storage contest ongoing? This will be a big story. Also the other issue is the Jeremy Corbyn is not exactly Joe. Jeremy Corbyn is taking predictable approach which is everyone should deescalate. What why are we upset? Iranians in the first place approach of his question here I mean there is there is a I mean the government is very vulnerable. Were more focused right on time. which is you made the decision to impound the ship because he believed it was going to Syria and breaking sanctions? You've failed to Defend U._K.. Shipping why and finally we get the result of the LIB DEM leadership contest test the softening Katie expecting Jo Swinson to win or we or is it much closer than it appeared start the contest but I think when it comes to leadership contests mistakes ulcer in the Tory leadership is very hard for the polling often into Western. What is exactly going on is interesting difficult? Speaking to Redemption Bove's is the sense. I think that Jason is more likely to get this biting. The margin is going to be interesting to the case that perhaps it didn't mean every time you speak to lived M._p.. They will tell you how friendly the contest is and how they're absolutely delighted rather not at David J Simpson even basements in will say that should be delighted if adcose obviously has so it definitely has a slightly different dynamic when it comes to and clearly has got attention in the past few weeks while the Tour de contests has been on but it is good to be a very important decision you think about the fact that we could be having an election anytime seeing that he looked Lib. Dem's are in the polls. The EH leader in contrast to re Party is actually inheriting a very positive situation where the party has got to whether or not that's pretty Vince cable assets or luck intangibles having the party until about gay sex. Eh Eh we've got the media fakers which is going to be hard before these leaders than what happened Tim Farron and the general election so I think it would be a surprise of Jo. Swinson didn't get it but ultimately do you get the the sense that whatever happens is not going to be as big upset as tomorrow. If Jeremy Hunt Somehow wins James Davey and Jo Swinson do differ in terms of how they get what they want in a hung parliament scenario scenario you say at Davy for instance would vote for Jeremy Corbyn Queen's speech of a hard legislation for a second referendum in it. Jo Swinson is much less clear on that but it's very uneasy about since she doesn't think you can trust Jeremy Corbyn too so the outcome of this contest is really important isn't it. I was very struck by in your writer for a debate that you took part on quizzing the Swinson and Davey on Friday night of this difficulty for the still skull by coach of what they say and also how they position themselves on the one hand they want to say to remain voters. You can't trust Jeremy Corbyn an inch on the other hand they want to try and create this brewed remain alliance and suggests that they'll they'll do whatever they need to do to stop brexit. They're not worried about their own party. I mean but he's going to be attention. I mean one of the things about general election is but even if general elections before breakfast it won't be for solely on Brexit and it'll be a difficult question former Lib dem's which is the Lib Dem's pro remain position is trucks into them a certain kind of middle class prosperous demographic but are probably probably you but not pro all of the taxes that Jeremy Corbyn with I'd like to place on them and how Lib Dem's navigate that question what was going to unconvincing in your blog. You're saying they were saying oh we'd vote for the Queen speed for them. Vote Down the budget. I kind of that way so I think that as a kind of tricky question also fascinating question which is we'll talk a lot on this bogas about Boris Johnson the polls how him getting a poll bounce with affects things I think is also worth noting gene to see whether the Lib Dem's got any kind of bounce service extra not where they're going to get that much but there's extra coverage a Nudie will get because I think if you look at the decline and support Jeremy Corbyn among Labour members if a new more energetically dome and leader you live in homes Po position is maintained. If Labour's can all regularly coming second in the polls because Boris Johnson is brought back some voices from the BREXIT party.
