35 Burst results for "Brexit"
A highlight from The Debanking of Nigel Farage
"If the desire of the big institutions to basically prevent a flight of money into Bitcoin, what on earth do people do? Hello there from Ibiza, how are you all? I'm having a rare holiday. It's the first time I've been away in a year and it's been a crazy year, so busy, so much happening in football, podcasts, documentaries, but I needed a break. So I'm here for a few days having some well -needed time off with the kids. I'll be back home next Friday for a week and then off on a massive trip. Off to Latvia for Honey Badger, then I'm off to Australia for the first time, got our WBD event there. By the way, if you want a ticket for that, we've got Nick Bartier, Willy Woo, Checkmate, Rusty Russell, and Dan Roberts all on stage. If you want a ticket, just head over to whatbitcoindid .com and click on WBD Live. And then I'm off to Lebanon to make another film. It's going to be a busy, busy September. Anyway, welcome to the What Bitcoin Did podcast, which is brought to you by the legends at Iris Energy, the largest NASDAQ listed Bitcoin miner using 100 % renewable energy. I'm your host, Peter McCormack. Today, I've got a massive interview. I've got Nigel Farage on the show, and for anyone British, Nigel needs no introduction. But for some of my American listeners, you might not know him. He has been a controversial and polarizing politician here in the UK. He was one of the main people spearheading the exit from the European Union known as Brexit. So yes, a polarizing figure, but he is also a Bitcoiner. I interviewed him last year at Bitcoin Amsterdam, and he's been through an experience which I think has probably made him more of a hardened Bitcoiner. So if you haven't followed the story, he recently had his bank accounts closed down for what he believes were political reasons. So I asked him to come on the show and tell his story and see if it has solidified his views on Bitcoin. And listen, I know not everyone likes Nigel. When I posted the image up on Twitter after the interview, there were some mixed responses. But listen, whether you like Nigel Farage or not, anyone having their bank account removed for political reasons, we know is not a good thing. So listen, I look forward to your feedback. You know you can drop me an email about this or anything else. It's hello at whatbitcoindid .com.

Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Welcome back, everybody. Joining us now is an amazing man, Nigel Farage, host of Farage on GB News and leader of Brexit. Nigel Farage has been de -banked, something we see a lot in the States, and it's extraordinary. Bank acts Farage, as you quote, doesn't align with our values. Nigel, welcome to the program. Walk us through this extraordinary story. Yeah, I mean, Charlie, I've been with the same banking group since 1980, which I know makes me sound very old. And I've had run my personal account with them. I've run business accounts with them. I've never had any problem at all. I've had mortgages with them that I paid off before time. You know, I am a credit worthy customer. And yet I receive a telephone call followed by a letter to say we are canceling your accounts. No reason given whatsoever. And so I speak to them on the phone. I get somebody higher up the chain on the phone. Oh, we're doing it for commercial reasons. Well, there is something called a data subject access request that I can put in as a citizen, a request to my bank in this country under the law, and they have within 30 days to give me my personal data. Got to be honest, Charlie, I didn't even know two months ago this right existed, but I've used it and it's proved two things. Firstly, when they decided to cancel me, I was, in their own words, an economically viable customer. So what they told the media was a lie. But more importantly, it's 40 pages of absolute vitriol, bile and prejudice. They obviously loathe me. The word Brexit is mentioned 86 times in the document. And wait for this. Russia is mentioned 144 times. My supposed links with Russian money. Was Brexit funded by the Russians? It's exactly the same Russia hoax that you saw with Donald Trump in America. And they've done exactly the same thing to me. They've decided that I'm a risk because of Russia. But more importantly, they don't think my public statements are in line with their values of inclusion and diversity, whatever that means. I thought these people were banks, not social engineers. And the thing that annoys me the most is that after the subprime crisis in 2008, through greed and stupidity, these banks were bailed out by us, the taxpayer. Huge bailouts of banks. And now they can treat us with contempt. Charlie, it's not just me that's being debunked. It's happening to thousands of businesses. It's happening to people that operate in cash because they want to move us to a cashless society. They want to move us in the end, the central bank digital currencies. And even more worryingly is banks are now beginning a process of checking the social media accounts of their holders. And you could finish up with huge numbers of people being debunked. And effectively, we'd be in a China social credit style system. So this is a crusade that says we need to live in liberty and free speech. And this practice, these practices have got to end. So, Nigel, several thoughts on this. It seems this sort of practice has been happening in America and de -banking is occurring where they're trying to basically ghettoize the conservative movement and try to put us on an island where we're not able to participate in mainstream society. So, Nigel, talk about the Russia thing, because your stance has always been peace, reconciliation. What is it about Western governments that have them so worried that a dissident point of view or a contrarian point of view might be introduced with this ongoing proxy war against Russia? Well, look, I mean, you're right. I mean, you know, at the moment, at the moment, we must all support war, war, war, war, more war, more weapons, cluster bombs from Joe Biden, whatever it is. But actually, we've got to go back further than this. The twin shocks in 2016 of Brexit and Donald Trump getting elected, the establishment looked for an excuse and they decided it was going to be Russia. They convinced themselves that somehow Russia had a huge effect on both of those elections. And they've been peddling this conspiracy theory for year after year after year. And this is what this report on me shows. You know, every extreme left -wing article written in The Guardian or wherever else it may be attempting to link me with Russia, accusations that I'd taken half a million pounds of money direct from the Kremlin, all of it wholly untrue is in this report. So this isn't just about the war that's currently going on. This started properly in 2016. We're seeing so many similarities between what's happening in the UK and America. Nigel, do you think this sort of idea of de -banking and domestic totalitarianism, did it start in America and then was then exported to European Western democracy countries? Or is this a European idea that made its way to America and then bouncing back? Where did this really start? I'm afraid to say this is a uniquely American export in the last couple of years of us doing our best to copy Mao's China. Your thoughts, Nigel Farage? Yeah, it's a good one because we do send things back and forth across the pond. We recently sent you Prince Harry, so good luck with that. You sent us West Coast woke culture and I'd love to send it back to you. I'd like to think that the Brexit wave helped Donald Trump get elected. So we send back and forth good things and bad things. I think the truth of it is that it's the European Union that seized on this and anti -money laundering directives in a very, very big way. But the truth of it is that our banking industries aren't American, they aren't British, they aren't European, they're globalist. So when a big banking corporation makes a decision, it's making it on a global level. So I think in this particular case, I don't think we can blame any one more than the other, but the phenomenon is happening on both sides of the pond and it is conservatives every single time that are being singled out. And so Nigel, is this illegal to do what they did to you in the United Kingdom? The Prime Minister Rishi said this is wrong. No one should be barred from using basic services for their political views. Elon Musk agreed. Are there laws on the books that prevent this? And if not, is there movement in the House of Commons to try to fix this? I have been promised by the minister in charge of financial services that they will act on this and act on this quickly and make sure a law is in place that says you cannot have your bank account closed for legal, personal, political opinions. And I'm normally, Charlie, very skeptical about government promises turning into action. But for once, I think I've struck something here in terms of the mood of the country and I'm optimistic that they will act. I sure hope so. So Nigel, I just want to get your top level reaction about a minute and a half remaining. Donald Trump is facing multiple domestic indictments after he did ride that populist nationalist wave that you really helped give breath to in the summer of 2016. Your reaction to Donald Trump facing multiple indictments and 400 years in prison? Well, it becomes just one after the other. It almost becomes meaningless. Charlie, it almost becomes meaningless. Two, three, four, five, however many indictments there are, it almost becomes meaningless. No fair minded person can believe that what is happening to Trump is right, whether they like him, whether they don't like him and what he needs, what he needs above all is an inner moral strength to stand up and fight through all this. If he announced he was withdrawing from the presidential race, they dropped pretty much all of these charges. You know that, I know that, he knows that. And yet, you know something? I've got to know him over the years, just as you've done.
Mike Benz Unpacks the Global Growth in Populism
"Trump without Brexit that happened before Trump. So 17 and a half million Brits vote to leave this collectivist quasi socialist entity called the European reunion, the biggest vote in British history. Then you have autobahn, then you have Modi, then you have later meloni. So what's happening here, I mean, this is a real problem for that foreign policy elite because this isn't just a U.S. growth in populism, but this is a global one, correct? Totally, totally. No, you nailed it. That's exactly right. And that is what that really is actually how the censorship industry started. That is the censorship that Americans face today on YouTube on Facebook on TikTok on Reddit on anywhere on the Internet other than currently this enclave being protected by a deus ex Machina in the form of Elon Musk's $44 billion acquisition so that you can make memes. This was the higher up you go in the censorship industry. When you start looking at the firms who are doing the censoring, you will inevitably see that they are being funded by foreign policy establishment institutions. That is, you start to see that it is actually about control over not just the United States, but really the political ecosystems of all countries around the world in order to make sure that there is no resistance to what you may call a sort of transatlantic security states consensus of how to how to organize a society. And so one of the things I find so disturbing about this is this is not just a theory. This is empirically verifiable by simply going to the website at the national endowment for democracy
U.K. deputy prime minister quits after investigation found he bullied staff
"Britain's deputy prime minister Dominic raab has resigned after an independent probe found he bullied civil servants, though he is criticized the report as flawed. Rob's announcement comes the day after prime minister Rishi sunak received findings into 8 formal complaints that rob had been abusive towards staff members during a previous stint in that office and while serving as Britain's foreign secretary and Brexit secretary. Labor opposition leader Keir Starmer says rams exit has exposed a double weakness in prime minister Rishi sunak. He should never have appointed him in the first place, along with other members of the cabinet that shouldn't have been appointed. And then he didn't sack him and even today it's rather resigned rather than prime minister who acts. Rob says he's resigning because
King Charles III's European state visit hits French hurdle
"A state visit to France by Britain's King Charles the third has been postponed indefinitely amid widespread protests over president Emmanuel Macron's pension reforms. The move puts a damper on the new monarch's appearance on the international stage, Charles will still travel to Germany on Wednesday in what was scheduled to be the second leg of his first overseas trip since ascending the throne in September. The original 6 day visit to France and Germany, the two biggest countries in the EU was designed to highlight efforts to rebuild relations between Britain and its neighbors after 6 years of squabbling over Brexit by the prospect of Charles being confronted by protesters and piles of garbage in the streets of Paris, has forced officials in France and Germany to rethink their plans.

Sunak says U.K. has reached deal with EU on Northern Ireland trade
"British prime minister Rishi sunak is in Belfast to sell his landmark agreement with the EU to its toughest audience. That is unionist politicians who fear post Brexit trade rules and weakening Northern Ireland's place in the UK a deal was struck on Monday to resolve a dispute over the Northern Ireland trade that has vexed relations since the UK left the EU in 2020. The agreement will ease customers checks and other hurdles for goods moving to Northern Ireland from the rest of Britain, but Northern Ireland's British unionist politicians have yet to give it their blessing. Their support is key to restoring Northern Ireland's semi autonomous government, which is in limbo amid the trade feud

Sunak says U.K. has reached deal with EU on Northern Ireland trade
"The British government says it's reached a deal with the European Union to resolve their long running trade dispute over Northern Ireland. Prime minister Rishi sunak says he and European Commission president Ursula von der leyen would hold a news conference on Monday. The government had previously said it would only happen if a deal was struck government officials have told the BBC and Sky News that the deal has indeed been done. The agreement marks a breakthrough in a spat that soured post Brexit relations between Britain and the EU and sparked a political crisis in Northern Ireland, but now sunak awaits the judgment of Northern Ireland's democratic unionist party or DUP, which is boycotting the region's power sharing government until the trade arrangements are substantially changed.

Ric Grenell: U.S. Weakness Led to Brexit, European Borders Changing
"But when I hear this stuff and you may disagree with me I don't know your view The American people don't care about Ukraine You know the American people didn't care about Austria The American people didn't care about Czechoslovakia The American people didn't care about Poland at one point And then all of a sudden we have the Third Reich I'm not saying this is the Third Reich I'm not even saying this is the old Soviet Union but I don't think we should be so cavalier as people with a public microphone that just blow this sort of thing off I'd be curious about what you think Yeah I actually agree And I would go one step further in that it matters for NATO and it matters for Europe I spent a long time in Berlin hearing from Brussels and Paris and Berlin about why the transatlantic relationship was really about strengthening Europe And I told Chancellor Merkel that the reason why Brexit happened the reason why Crimea happened rewriting of the European borders which is Absolute nightmare Scenario The reason why we've had the borders rewritten in Europe In the last ten years a couple of times is because of weakness from the United States That's just a plain fact
The Origins of the Podcast 'Triggernometry,' Hosted by Francis Foster and Konstantin Kisin
"Crowds. Then around 2013 to 2014, I started to notice something change. And gradually, audiences became more and more sensitive. Not all audiences, but mainly audiences, audiences inner London, in central London, particularly young people. I started to notice that jokes that used to do quite well, then you used to say certain words and immediately you could feel the audience sees up. You could feel that there was attention around an audience when you broke certain topics. It was just, even if you dealt with a topic in a very sensitive, a very fun, a very playful way it didn't matter. You could feel the tension starting to come in. And then, obviously, everything exploded when Brexit happened when Trump happened. Then a narrative came in that if you voted for Trump, if you voted for Brexit, you were stupid, thick racist, white, all of these things, which they all lumped in together and then that's when the real divisions happened in comedy. And that's when I saw comedy becoming more woke, becoming more illiberal, becoming more intolerant. And it's progressed and then obviously we are where we are now. So that is my story with regards to trigonometry. And by the way, we started it in 2018 as a reaction to all of that because we saw what happened with Brexit with

Shake, Rattle the Roles: Britains Cabinet Reshuffle
"Britain's prime minister starts today with a very different cabinet than he had yesterday on. Peculiarity of british politics is the cabinet reshuffle. A sudden reordering of who's in charge of what in the government this one was. Well telegraphed and members of parliament had been pressing. Boris johnson on. Who shouldn't be in charge of much with all the talk of cabinet. Reshuffle can the prime minister guarantee that the foreign secretary will finally be sucked that any shuffled or does he intend to the world and competence reshuffles serve many purposes rewarding loyalty punishing perceived foolishness and setting or resetting a political agenda but they're messy and embarrassingly public ministers shuffled past the cameras outside downing street toward their new fates expecting a promotion. Knew it might not seem like a great time for such disruption with the country focused on what the pandemic will bring next and on britain's role in the crumbling of afghanistan but the prime minister has plenty of other business still to attend to and now a new team to tackle. It was expected that. Boris johnson would hold reshuffle. He has space to do so. Now and macelroy is a senior editor at the economist. Britain's coming out of the pandemic enough to do something like that. that wouldn't look like distraction. He won a tight vote on tax raising last week to fund the nhs and social care so he feels that he sweeps all before him. And this is the time to clear out some deadwood and makes them promotions. And what is the dead wood. That's been cleared out with the most. Prominent deadwood. That went out was dominic robb brexit. Here a lawyer. He became foreign secretary and went through that role. I think without great distinction. But he did it and then got into terrible trouble. When the fall of kabul happened.

"I was downstairs and out of it for the second plane and the collapse until their head. They collect them went up insult so the aftermath in the hotel mar would he was stunned. And so the lack of comprehension like the fact that the first plane people didn't go. Oh it's an attack. It's like oh it's terrible accident and i wondered whether many i mean you are old enough to remember it and i think there are. There are people. Obviously he wants frightening leila young people out there on the streets. I think perhaps in order to understand what happened next need to appreciate just how shocking and unprecedented was things like. I remember it being put in where flight ninety three was headed capitol or the white house. Do you think that that is sort of hard to convey to people who do not remember the actual remember all these many terrible things that spiraled out of it and that it's hard to actually convey the shock of something happening. That's had no happened before. Yeah i mean. I think a little bit conflicted about this because obviously you can't really know what it was like before and even to extend item wheaty understand what it was like before by undestand quite well over changes afterwards. I think nine eleven is just so unbelievably well documented in the way that other terrorist attacks. So even other atrocities not documented. You know it's covered so heavily in in pop culture in film and pretty much every form of media and are you know. There was a recent series on amazon as a brand new film on netflix. Don't think you can watch an american sitcom without reference to it. So i feel like the a normative is definitely quite easy to understand. And i'm not saying that that everyone is an expert. But i think this is as close as the gen. Repopulation can get understanding an event without actually being an. I can't think of another example where that would be the case john. I mean the so. It's took without getting into iraq is a whole other discussion really. Do feel that. I mean obviously blair at the time felt that he was felt as he was rising to the occasion. Felt that he was he was doing the right thing. How and then other things happened. How much do you think iraq. Maybe to a lesser extent. Afghanistan derailed his prime ministership the new labor project a lot of the time if you talk to people now. That's the thing. That is tony blair. They say iraq. But i'm much. Do you think that it. Just kind of like changed. Everything for what labor's twenty invading afghanistan was unavoidable ungoverned territory which is usable by al-qaeda as a base for launching terrorist attacks. The taliban government weren't handing over a q four. There had to be invasions. No that that was a inept View about the iraq war is is. It was a separate wards warned defense. United nations inspectors a rage. When regimes can refuse to allow access to the weapons inspectors. You get into about you. Get obama point. We have since explored every other possibility. That was a an invasion. We tried ignoring the gassing of civilians in syria just ignoring anything budget a tall consequential is brexit humanitarian crisis. Millions refugees half published series placed. No intervening an answer. We see that in syrian failure and the kind of strange a hybrid. I'm sort of interventional intervention. No on the ground at libya's in a total disaster too. So i don't think there's any easy on the irony that they are afghanistan was the terms in which tom to and most the conservative party and a large number contests of office. Compositions criticized joe biden. Who's accident the wrong. She support that. The terms which joe biden was criticized was in terms. All the terms of liberal. Interventionism was why. I've been there for his rights. Live without for preserving Education widely beat their from serving civil society. Tony's reputation will always have iraq as part of the definition of loans had the nobel peace process as partly definition. The government was not office. Electric johnny victory after a rock narrowly lost in a tent yet. Going by the one in two thousand seven ninety the snap election so we could be in a complete if it's a retrospective view of the blair government's look at only iraq. Not the social policy achievements. Bod is also interesting that the terms of debate around afghanistan have been completely now in tony. Blair's in tony blair's terms that very few pragmatic foreign policy Positions being held that very few people said this is simply return to the teacher was failure simply returns in where you don't have countries invading the country's sort out the assertion just as those countries that he's four countries to have their industries so it's very interesting that the idealistic cited tony which he took into foreign policy has become the general Versus discussion of it. So the legacies very complicated view. Alex back to the to the immediate aftermath couple of days afterwards. Mary beard right. This confirms piece of london. Review of books at many people thought the united states had it coming in the world bullies. Even if the hearts in the right place will in the end. Pay the price in the guardian shameless millon. Wrote a piece called. They can't see why they are hated. the americans once again reaping a dragon's teeth harvest. They themselves sewed knowing the peace went down Well no really yeah Because we're literally one or two days. Do you think the arguments that those arguments would would just flat wrong or was it more the timing and that if you if you made those arguments weeks months later they would have had okay. So i'll tackle the second thing. I the timing was definitely wrong. I mean it's not just wrong. It's deer tick the the fact that you have a comment on someone's legacy doesn't mean that it's okay to. Ken shouted at their relatives at the at the wake. You have to have a sort of filter that says now is not the right time to say. I told you so whether the argument is right or wrong. I mean i went back and read both those things. They make some good points in some not so good ones so i don't think either of them is wholly right or wholly wrong. I think it's fair to say to observe without justifying anything to observe that in time of globalization you can no longer limit conflicts to a land far away and say that. Oh i can have a little war there and it's not going to affect me because it can and i think that is actually a decent lesson to try and learn the more interconnected. We are the more the more we have an interest actually instability in faraway places and going back to what john was saying. I think that justifies now that slightly more pattern listrik view of saying that there may be married to having in encouraging different values in a faraway place. But the point. That nine eleven. In retrospect historically makes is that what you cannot guarantee. Is that your home. Population will be completely insulated from any costal election from the other side. It's rather quickly.

"Next saturday marks twenty years since the september the eleventh attacks. We're still living with some of the consequences. Wanna stop by as guarantees. A briefly share their memories many ti. Remember where you were and what you initially thought i do. I was in school or is eight. So i didn't hear about it until i came out of school. A my mom had actually had some kind of knee surgeries. So she was at home and watching. The news was all happening. Live so i kind of got a second hand account from her. And i think i was maybe too young to kind of understand the implications at the time. I remember thinking this is really bottle. People have died on sweetie scary. But will i do. Vividly remembers the allow people in my community telling each other be caf alled gas side especially if uvira scarf and there was a definite sense of kind of fear in these lama. Community oversee birmingham is quite dog about us. And i don't think i necessarily foul any direct impacts didn't experience any kind of racism but i do a lot of stories anecdotally around that time. Which is the kind of biggest takeaway for me. I mean obviously islamophobe existed before then and there are different components to it. How i mean. It's very difficult to do the counterfactual here but how much of a part to you think. Nine eleven in its aftermath. Sort of plays yeah. I think he can definitely tie the roots of the current version of islamophobia to nine eleven. What i have read open toed out of is prior to nine eleven. The racism was in a way much more. It's simple it was more to do. With kind of the directly the color of your skin entity with different misunderstanding on in terms of integration. I don't really like the phrase but in terms of integration we were closer to the acceptance of an existing british. Muslim population actually belong. Tear an after nine eleven. You had a population. In the general population that was basically told be afraid of muslims. Be wary look suspicious behavior. Which was based on stereotypical identifiers. And same time. You also have the state increasingly policing the muslim population which fed into this kind of leap of mistrust and fia. I'm the the idea that muslims just don't have a place don't belong here can be removed from here and then i think after that you know the slurs violence changed quoting a muslim a terrorist or insinuating that the religion is in heavenly violent accrue is now established form of racism that exists outside of skin color and i think the route so basically alex are your memories. I was working at the trading. At the time we had a big Press release coming up. I don't even remember what it was four but we were upstairs in the press office and it had this sort of glass meeting room in the middle of the press office and the wall behind me was filled with massive flat screens. That handle the news feeds on. You have to remember how unusual. there's big flat screens. Where at the time never mind a whole wall of them and suddenly the color drained from the face of everyone that was sitting on the other side of the table. Who could see the flat screens. Ed glass and we all turned around and so that they were all showing the same footage of the tower smoke billing from the tower and time compressed weirdly. I don't know how much time went by. But as we were watching in more and more people started gathering in the press sweet because it had the screens and the news The second plane flew into the other tower. And he was. I think at that point that everyone knew that this wasn't some horrible accident. Joan what were you doing. I was attending a meeting of this. Gosh cabinet scottish government cabinet at policy of the scottish government's that time and i actually morning picked up keys to a new house of moving into In family i along queen street turned up at view house charlotte square for the for the meeting of this cabinet. Then we found out the plane flown into the the twin tower. So i actually spent. Didn't attend cabinet that aspect. They spent lost undrafted emotion than scotia. Parlin asta that day in in in locking austin commiserations from the scottish parliament to marking the actor actor tower. An how quickly did the government grasp some of the implications like the fact that there would be military action taken by by the us oversee. Everybody was just shocked on a human level but like how quickly people pricing like what this could mean Politically so the scotch coming off. The vault in in foreign affairs bought. It was obvious from colleagues in number ten. this was going to be an invocation. With of article. Five the nato treaty therefore nature troops would be involved because once george bush The bush made the speech where he said that the sikh terrorists they seek other on those who harbor terrorists would be the enemy that it was clear. And i don't know what we knew about. Walk the implications for intention where british troops would be going alongside nato troops you. They'll be military action arising from this because this was an n. No seen as a tony blair spoke to the t. c. To rick speeches on riot riot completely new one and so the the fact that politics for changing the innocent the symbol of globalization seven four seven being flown into another symbol of globalization. The twin towers something world historical was happening and nothing was going to be the same after that. I remember it clearly the stages of comprehension. Because i was meant to be i was at the mercury music prize. Who whether we setting up. And i was meant to be interviewing Furry animals and i was waiting for the downstairs and a security guard just mentioned our planes flying into the twin towers. And i remember him. Just go bloody american pilots just like it was an accident and then because of various things like no phone signal waiting for the interview..
Ministers to Outline Proposals to Address NI Protocol
"You government. Ministers are set to outline how they want to overhaul trading arrangements between britain northern ireland the measures which governed by the northern ireland protocol designed to prevent the need for border checks on the island of ireland after brexit but the government in westminster is concerned about the impact that it could have on exports to northern ireland when the terms fully kickin over the next few months the agreement has also angered large sections of northern ireland's loyalist community. Let's get the latest now with george parker political editor at the financial times. Thank you for joining us. George just bring us up to speed. I on what we can expect from today. Well we're going to have to wait very long. See precisely what the british government's gonna say in this regard. There's gonna be a statement to the house of commons by the northern secretary brandon. Lewis in about half an hour's time where he's also going to publish a government statement on how it sees the future of the brexit deal relating to ireland's but essentially What's happened here. Since brexit took effect is that the uk government regards the checks on goods passing between the mainland of great britain's northern ireland to be fought too onerous. They think the eu interpreting the deal and as far too legalistic away and it's created tensions in northern ireland where the pro uk unionists community very much disliked. The idea of any sort of trade off between northern ireland and the rest of the united kingdom shots background so it and what the government is expected to announce today is it wants to basically get rid of those checks on goods travelling between raping the person in northern ireland. Right much more sort of honesty books. Kind of approach where british Goods thrive in northern ireland. That they'll be some sort of guarantee sticker on the mall. Something saying that. The could should only go into circulation in northern ireland across across the open land border into ireland which of course remains possibly even single market.

"All the narrative and the polls leading up to this that they were going to take it so it does feel like more of a more of a sorts of setback than normally a by election loss by the governing party. Would i mean everyone. I hope the listeners have seen the wonderful sort of erin. Bustani tweet from yesterday. That was basically talking about the election as if labor had lost it and were saying that. What labor could have done to win. It would be for. Kissed tom to have visited the constituency and then and then today literally fasting in the morning he tweets. What labor did right to wait in that constituency was that they kept starmer away. Which is the classic. You know whatever happens confirms exactly what genuinely raise your honor. I'm i. I suppose by thinking more in the short term. I know what you're saying about the challenges labor's going to have in the next general election. But it seems that the off to that whole fuss with with angela. Raina being demoted the new national campaign. Cheshire barnum and mood and a deputy conor mcginn. We're getting quite a loss of granada. Praise from mp's and activists in the lead up to the into to the by election. And obviously this is a result of course result. But it's a result. There's been quite shakeup in chaos stomas often and a lot of people who were clearly doing a bad job have gone suggest in the short term is this is that appointment fuller that shake-up followed by this result. A sign that perhaps lotto with people that we call it lotto did in the coleman days. But it's it's still lotta tight is sort of getting. It is going to shit together. Yes i think is moving in a positive direction. And i just think if nothing else. It's a good cultural reset. If we think about how diabolically. The reshuffle was handled earlier in the year on the messaging around that whereas this time you've got some great reinforcement messaging of we've brought in some fresh blood and look how to win. So yeah i think just culturally internally for them it will be the boost. They need to to to carry on an. I'm i'm pretty hopeful about some new appointments. I think i think in many of them are incredibly experienced in good people with some great ideas and i think what we're going to end. Is this kind of chris around lotto You can't get any penetrates. And i think that now going to be much more open to connectors and people that have got good ideas from outside. The traditional Policy thinkers and think tanks that they would normally work with bruton to give you an idea and share and much more collegiate comprehensive weddings. I'm quite excited about served. There was little electoral result yesterday. That i think has just popping enable onto cobham and downside. It had little by election for the wood for the umbrage council. Now is this in the east shera moten constituency here in dominic rob's backyard And there was a massive swing of eighteen point something percent to the liberal democrats that puts the the the council from conservative control to liberal democrat control and like i said that's in dominic rob's backyard. I'm so i united. I've been banging this drum for some months. Now i think the conservatives by pouring money into the north and this new if it's new rhetoric this new friend of the working man stick. I think they have left themselves. Very vulnerable in other more traditionally conservative constituencies in which actually numerically. They are in a in a marginal situation so may be labor should depend paying attention to the numbers as they are today rather than the historical patents as they were twenty years ago. Now that constituency. Alex you're right to mention because they had the largest swing to the lib-dems in one thousand nine hundred general election on a harding is liberal democrat kanda and she does a lot of work around progressive alliance stuff on a she continues pay. 'cause right probably will take that seat. From dominic robb the next election we'll sichuanese on an uncommonly upbeat emerged. Travis will receive. Maybe we should call these shotton.

"brexit" Discussed on Remainiacs - the Brexit Podcast
"This does take the heat off storm for while it's an old one. Politics is election was really weird. Because you're a few hundred votes in the other direction and it would be stom- mosquito and who were the runners and writers and oh my god labor's dead in the water a few hundred votes in the right direction. And it's just like no leadership challenge. Everybody carry on emi teach. You believe obviously there were certain people who very much wanted a leadership challenge. How seriously to tight the idea that they would actually There's gonna be one. I didn't an was. Because i do talk to a lot of labor. Mp's a lot of the time. And i just didn't feel that was going to be a sufficient groundswell amongst the p. l. p. to to try and tokyo him For gopher challenge. So i didn't think at this stage. It was likely but what you're going to find amongst labor but also you'll hearing already this morning from lib-dems notably the president of dem's mock pack is older. You know this is it. Voters can be trusted. They can do the right thing. They know how to vote. Tactically insult their intelligence by fielding a single candidate or having non-aggression paxton place. And all the rest of it and what what is true is that today probably hasn't changed much at all. This isn't the start of a rapid decline in support for the conservative party. Despite them now having lost by by-elections in a fortnight. This isn't about some major resurgence of the left parties. The you know this is. This is a very very very slim victory on a nikon because his anything other than that installments still house goes to fight on his hands internally trying to keep his party together and if you think about the pure electro massive this blair achieved a swing of ninety of ten percent in nineteen ninety seven on not returned him an enormous majority off the back of a pretty decent lib-lab pack. That was done behind the scenes. Between pontiacs. John and peter mandelson in order full stomach to get the keystone number ten. He would also need a ten percent swing as things stand in the polls amendment and that would deliver him a working majority of one when you think about just how fractured appeal is at the moment. He wouldn't be able to govern with a majority of one that would be too many rebellion votes on critical issues. That would meant he would probably still have to be in some kind of confidence and supply arrangement with the liberal democrats and that's before boundary changes. Which would you take place as of summer of trench. Twenty-three which make it even more favorable in england for the conservatives on therefore makes the swing required for labor even bigger and then don't even get me started on whether or not scotland is still positive elections or not so the critical path past victory. Full anyone who wants to get rid of the conservatives is going to be. I'm afraid and i know some popular with some listeners. With some members of the cost as well but it is going to have to be some form of of working together and packs can take many different. Doesn't have to be just building a single candidate but it is absolutely clear that it's the only way that green candidate standing down was probably the major factor in kim's victories. This morning we're going to put a jar of the studio and every time you turn the question around to dose of it for the progressive alliance. You're gonna have to put five pounds in the jar. And then we'll give it to give it to the end of the year listeners. Might want to visit besser. Bit into forward slash and proportional polling is about the average voter thinks about an alliances intact school. I hate tactical. I don't want to have to do it but we've got this ridiculous. I system anyone that says they don't like first-past-the-post once. Pr house to do something to deliver it. And at the moment the only way it's going to be delivered is a one or holding the in and doing some kind of alliance an voters do like to be told who to vote for. They actually do is likud. Party activists say no they don't they should give them. You know the right to right. Is that particular collectivist. They love jamie on the kid. They so are you agree. I agree with a lot of that What i'm going to slightly disagree with is the framing of the question whether this has a larger significance for conservative support. I agree with namie that it doesn't mean sort of ebbing away of support for the conservatives but what it does. Mean is a stemming of their momentum. I think internally for the party. Psychologically you know this notion that boris johnson is a sort of magical being. That means you win. Every single election that comes along and don't don't don't make the mistake of thinking conservatives didn't throw everything they added this election unless you think nissan randomly decided to announce a gigafactory in the northeast on the day of election. And boris johnson. Happened to be in the area in a heart heart on ivy's jacket. They threw everything at this election. And the fact that they failed to win. It will hurt because it stems that sense of momentum that sense that they're invincible that sense that no cd safe well. That's i mean. That's one of the maddening. Things about political punditry. I find is is the way the everything can mean. Whatever you want it to mean that. I'm that normally could. Easily governments are expected to lease by-election. So it's no big deal that the tories lost this one but like that does ignore.

Matra franz describe northern ireland's being not a proper full part of the uk when you forgive me if i don't divulge the The detail of what was discussed behind closed doors. This and actually i would. I can tell you there. Is you figures here in carb's bay but frankly for months now and years have characterized the woman that under somehow separate country and that is wrong. It is a failure to understand the facts. It is a failure to appreciate what speaking around northern ireland in those times and approaching the issue of the northern ireland protocol in those terms does causes damage to businesses from both communities in northern ireland. Creates deep consternation. And we wouldn't talk about catalonia in barcelona in barcelona or corsica and france in those ways. What we want now is a flexible approach which looks at all of the provisions in the northern ireland protocol not just those that protect the eu but those that protect free flow between trade between great britain and ireland. The ball is in the us court. The pm was very clear about it. We're willing to be flexible and matic. They must come back with the reciprocal goodwill to make

"Fear because it aimed to make people afraid of what they might lose it focused on income robin freedom of movement. And things like that. Because we didn't of course the time thing we would lease we lose freedom of movement because we were lied to until we would stay in the single market. It didn't play on the cut of mutual. Trust that makes the invisible hand of the single market work. It made they active of leaving brexit. It made it seem can meaningful act of defiance itself. And that was the key to leave success arguably. I think you couldn't had brexit. Brexit would not have happened if they had not invented the word brexit which put into some sort of vaguely concrete for the the ideas that people wanted to communicate. Well they talked about leaving. The juice talks about it as a speech is quite talks about feeling pride in britain without embarrassment without shame. Those interestingly don't think that's something that you would have You would have said necessarily in the in the sixty s you know and it seems to be an implicit kind of critique of i suppose what is seen as as as the left encouraging sort of embarrassment and shame. Does that kind of if you were sort of. Lay a reading this. Would you perhaps beef. Be thinking actually. Okay how's the way not not to sort of do the same version of patriotism but to not be associated with shame which is pretty is pretty toxic quality in politics. Yeah i think labor left generally find it very awkward do patriotism before maturity in the way that modern politics seems to demand that you do you know as he said without embarrassment without shape. You know the flag behind your desk on zoo has become a shortcut for lots of tory. Mp's to express that patriotism. i was thinking about. this recently. Was what she sky. Full the bond movie again that came out in two thousand twelve honda ebb whose judi dench. She has a china bulldog in a union. Jack coat on her desk. That was that was that was twenty twelve. You couldn't get away with the irony at human al. It's all very serious deliberately patriotic. I don't think labor is any less patriotic but it doesn't have those shortcuts to expressing the patriotism that the conservatives are comfortable with mike patches and personally is triggered by option were used the word triggered because it's has negative connotations now but three or less tangible things and it happens in very often unexpected places. At unexpected times flags. Leave me completely cold yet. I am capable occasionally being very very patriotic. But in these in these flag-waving ways those make me recorder. I can't even explain exactly why they may be recoiled but they do. And of course that will be that is seized upon that reaction by the consensus by the rights to imply that the left is not pragmatic. I don't think that's the case. We don't like easy. Symbols would coming into a phase of replaced pandemic phase where he might actually have to deliver on what he's thing and the people will notice if there isn't something to back up the optimism the story that he's telling. How long do you think he has to actually put some me on the bones. I mean when we look at who else is and what people think of them. He's doing remarkably well. So you know paul out from it so smari this week. Prime minister material agree disagree. Johnson is way out ahead ahead of burnham of soon goes right down on any thirteen percent of people agree. He's prime ministerial sixty percent of people. Disagree so both within his party and from the opposition party. He isn't facing much challenge. At the moment voters like him nesting with him in ordinary times and if the playing field was level and he was being held to the same account as most prime ministers ought to be. Yes you're right. This chickens would becoming him to because the the leveling up agenda exposed for the foster is so far the absolute neglect of key sectors and parts of the country in the tc would be unforgivable Be noticed but at the moment the fact that cove still hang everybody's minds and the fact that doesn't seem to be any other politician snapping his heels means. I think he's safe. Because the one thing we know about the conservative party is as soon as leader becomes unpopular. They nice quick. Take on at the moment. He's popular and few of that other people anywhere. Close him in the popularity stakes. They will not be moving against him anytime soon. Connection between a healthy microbiome..
"brexit" Discussed on Remainiacs - the Brexit Podcast
"The patron i this week. Atlantic right atomic tegas published a long profile of boris johnson in the magazine titled the minister of chaos. Boris johnson. those exactly what he's doing does he. Rose what did they tell you that you didn't already know who wanted to clarify knows a lot to be honest. There wasn't a great deal there. It was nice opposed to an american audience. You may know less about john and be watching him closely than i have the last decade or so but either no startling renovate revelations Was he was very articulate oppose and that seemed to take the atlantic by surprise. It didn't take me by chrysler. Did you buy the theory of the put. His popularity put forward here the only lighting his floors. He can get away with anything. Because it's sort of like nobody's perfect On should should we try that. Yeah there's certainly an element of that to his popularity. He we've seen him screw up countless times in different ways both in enormous wave killing arguably thousands of people in very minor ways as well. It's it's it's almost priced into johnson. That he will sometimes fail and there have been. There was quite a convincing analysis of his character. The guardian published a few months ago suggesting that he was he had some of the quantities of cloud that you were voicing voicing him to trip up and cetinje. There is that element his personality. I'm naming and assist the puck off the bunker daily as journalists matt ancona said the johnson once called him fifteen times to complain about an unflattering article. You think a restraining order do you think takes will be blowing up after this article. I doubt it's going to be getting an invite to the johnson. Some apus really thinking like was. I don't think there's anything that i didn't know. But it was incredibly to flee written. And i think helped me to better articulate his failings and personality in idiosyncrasies flattering piece. I don't think but you know. I don't think so. I say that the point about him not getting invite because it the the culture the johnson's building in number ten and in his state ms in a very much. You're either with meal you're against me and the just isn't rim furniture thing that that is totally forming and we've been seeing like this week loss to the the rebels around australia dalen international aid and things like that lots and lots of rumors of an the. The ministers unionist is backing him. Going to get the chop sir. I just state see why he wouldn't sort of apply that similar liter to journalists that. Don't write him up in the most. Structuring light. mean wind talks about overcoming defeatism. He's references john curry's knowles in the nineteen sixties. She took him out kind of postal. Imperial malays decline ism. An only sacha doesn't get a mention and oc. She taught about overcoming that very same malays forty years ago so it's like the timeframe just seemed bizarre to me. What exactly is he trying to get back to. What is the glory days of britain for him. Well i think the beauty of him using this rhetoric is that it doesn't mean anything in particular right and that is why this rhetoric which pharmacists to restore nation to its former glory So politically effective. Because they could mean many things to many people. I mean just how many times have we seen this trick. Being deployed in political history only recently across the atlantic make america. Great again mega right championed by none other than donald trump actually ronald. Reagan promised to make america great again. He repeatedly used that slogan during his nineteen eighty presidential campaign even had the slogan on merch long before the red donald trump maga- hat came be. What the phenomenon that it is now. Moving into the nineties. Even bill clinton use the braves. I mean he literally said we could make america great again during his presidential announcement speech in ninety-one and similarly if you look at british politics you don't have to look too far to see all the leaders who promised to make person grace again one example of courses the diong. Parliamentary candidate made a big promise to her would be voters in the winter of nineteen fifty after years of decline in incompetence under a labour government. It was time to make rison race again. And that parliamentary candidate with none other than margaret. Thatcher's so to me. This heralded back to this former lory day using this rhetoric is emblematic of boris johnson. Style leadership feel good populism and it can mean many things to many people without actually having to mean anything really. Because it's interesting. You talk about reagan using it enough. See reagan had that sorta very sunday morning in america vibe whereas trump's make america great again was kind of like it's shit now you know american-carnage momoa's lots of angry you in the peace johnson complains about in compared to trum i mean. Do you think that we talked about this in next. But i mean do you think he sort of right there the actually that his kind of narrative that he's sally two people is more like reagan than like trump that it. It's a smile rather a scowl. I don't think you can draw too many meaningful parallels between reagan johnson despite this kind of cursory parallel. They're both about feel good optimism and the reason is because each man is such a fundamentally different political. Carter whatever you think. Reagan reaganism I think it's certainly true that he was imbued with a deep sense of moral purpose. Right not only took the responsibilities bestowed on him in high office very seriously. He also saw his leadership of the united states especially during the cold war. Is this kind of battle. Between the forces of good and evil and his religious beliefs than sense more rectitude i think imbued his leadership style. Now compare that and to the kind of serial philanderer liar. Boris johnson who has shown us time and time again that he doesn't have a moral compass at all. Yeah i mean in the sense. That is boris johnson ineffective operator absolutely. Can't he like rate ian so members of the public with a sense of optimism about britain's future Future in its role in the world. Yes apparently he can but beyond that. I think comparing reagan. Johnson is really like a rose. Ill says a piece. In the minister's view those who wanted to remain in the eu during the brexit referendum didn't have the courage to tell the real story at the heart of their vision the story of the beauty of european unity and collective identity. This being a power faez. I assume that was also doesn't mention that That he lied lot during the referendum. Maybe that also have an impact. Does he have a point that that remains we certainly tweaked it after the referendum but not before. Yeah that is fat criticism. It's a way. Of course he didn't dot himself since he was thinking is backing the remained. 'cause he would have done had he thought it was the route to power himself The remain campaign was too easy to characterizes project..

It's this past has happy in number ten. Quite six o'clock to her. And i think it hasn't helped. I think the fact that is also behind the scenes and she doesn't really have a public voice because it means you all relying so heavily on these various squads so d- wonder at the fact that it is now she is in this row means that have more public facing presence that ends in the sense that she's going to suddenly be his environment advisor which i think has been deflated in the press instead the fact that you can do things like this and there's almost i think to be there in public as she help a bit when it comes to.

I don't think he's quite remarkable and concerning there's also another interesting question guy on here which he sounded like dominant cummings in one regard which is expressing concerns the view among governments on advisors in the academic climbing community in the uk who were talking to was to benign and he was more worried nfl. Maybe the border should have been shot. But the he didn't feel confident new to take on the officials vice was was was a big thing and he didn't feel competent in in doing that. Perhaps explains why my ankle because become such a convert now to this idea of always having kind of australia. Install summer and the idea that you can't no one's going out of the country and no one's coming into the country an idea the popularity which seems very heavily depending on how sunny or rainy is outside.

Katie is that the limits than off the ramifications from dominic. cummings hearing. it's been quite a few weeks now.

"Shots spectators. Daily politics podcast. I'm cindy and i'm joined by james and katie booze. so today president joe biden. Macy's i for intrepid slandered in the uk and is now meeting the prime minister. James would have the first moments of their meetings first. Time look like so. They've done aren't going to face a lot. Joe biden saying if something in common both married above that station but there is obviously an elephant in the room. Now after the extraordinary splash of at times this morning about formal demarche from the us representative in london on the points ambassador to david frost. To basically say you goings on endangering peace in northern andrea protocol white house concerned about this who let and then the carrot account in the use of of the estimate which is to say to you if you align with the e. u.'s. Sbs rules to ease checks in orlando that wouldn't preclude a us free trade deal now. I mean it's quite in the reaction from the us this morning. They'll they'll clearly trying to walk with to a more maurer position. It is quite something to have a demarche especially ahead of a g seven summit especially when you consider how in terms of job wins big goals in terms of trying to get the g seven countries to say russia and china off rats. The uk is as closely with the us position as any member of the g seven. And so you see the uk in the us. Not pushing the jake sullivan. Not express yesterday which was more nuanced. Bit more saas oil and a bit more and different in tone is more the your thoughts. Obviously that this happened is indicative of was of concern and white house and just how tricky a full blown row over the northern ireland protocol could be the us uk relations. James this happened behind closed doors earlier this week in the times scooters was the white house thinking this would never come out and say oh warning behind the doors or do they mean if it gets quite clear from the times reseda. this is. this is come from the uk side raw like not deliberately so the us not planning tap appetizers us wars planning traumatize on this trip but it has concerns about non protocol that something that you know. It's not a secret but dublin. The pinot being quite hard for them to persian therapy. You sources that you know the. Us is the best way of putting the again to line now whereas there is a comparatively here because the us is good friday agreement and the uk. Argument is the is the implementation protocol in its current form but it's threatening probably agreement so but the problem to the uk's that when it comes the good friday agreement washington essentially defers to dublin on whatever it is being protected or not and i think the good friday talks about the totality of relationships north south east west but i think it is fast say from washington. It's much more about north south and east west which causes problems for the uk. Argument is but the current situation is unbalanced because she's forty east west. A not is is causing upset. Katie how has the case Taken his obviously didn't happen today. But you know it's a rookie. Saad who was meant to be boris johnson's diplomatic coup. Yes it's not. The front page would have wanted. I think there's potential johns that because it's come to a public hand in this manner a might suggest the us side. They will always want to be a little bit less reverses to public the conference because is already this hangover. Really wanted. And i think has james said. They definitely misses taking hall yesterday from the official intervention in the fact that wasn't t prescriptive and what the government needs to do on the ninth protocol..
"brexit" Discussed on Remainiacs - the Brexit Podcast
"You have to be a psychopath to kill. Kill someone a blow them up. Don't don't you know. It is insulting to us to associate the brexit case with joe cox's murder and to be fair. They had a point about that because if the same had happened left and it was so far left terrorist. You know the left would have done the same thing. I think we have to be really careful about investing in tax with political significance. Just after they've happened. I think you need some time to work out. What their significance is. It's actually it's interesting interesting owning the last week so there's been an exhibition there. The people's history museum in manchester. Which is about your cox has just opened and it feels like about the right time now to take a longer view on what it means and of course is the whole charity The group common which was set up by her widower which has done some really good work on chiming to work out like says on the tin. What what more we have in. When i talked to them for the bunker a few weeks ago was very was very interesting to hear what they had to say about people's views. And yeah i think i think generally i was a bit worried at the time of the way the left trying to interpret joe cox's murder and i think i was right to be it didn't in the end work in the favour off the left some hoped it would come back as opposed to where the police and security services are with. You feel they have finally understood the threat because that's okay. Let's look at the time line. This is one nine nine. This is this is pre nine eleven and around. after the good fight agreements. there was a general sense Perhaps the terrorism in general was not the sort of top priority. Then you've got nine eleven and he has a long period where there is obsession with terrorism from one particular direction and wishing to be reason why you weren't paying that much attention to the phone right now. He's seen of course. There are members of these prescribed groups in certainly in place and seemingly in the military as well. How confident are you that the police are of monitoring the right people here on a very confident because i think the networks. These people have access to a far far bigger than the ones that they had big hers. It is so much easier now not just to find a bomb manual but to find on the internet the kind of views that will legitimize this kind of violence. There's just so many more channels of influence. We had locked in the documentary. About how the The john tyndall and the rhetoric of the fall right all this was kind of stuff fed into an and leaded obviously with a massive part of what he did but the internet enables people to find endless justification for this kind of violence and i find it hard to see that the police have the resources or perhaps even the will to delve into that and to find out exactly what's going on because it must be infinitely harder than it was in a pre internet era many in the film locals and brixton's that they were under protected and police around the time of the bombing. Which is the same use. The macpherson report his asian newspaper editor at the brick lane bomb saying we felt like they didn't the folk didn't seem as much as a film about terrorism about please failures. Yeah i mean. Some of that testimony was really powerful. About how the community didn't feel like the police taken them seriously. An actual allegations of violence from the police towards us communities to and that's something that marginalized communities still say now and that was the essence of black lives matter protests in the protests around the death of sarah every i think since the mcpherson report which is at the same time a lot of the findings around reform to policing structures have not been implemented so when you put back context in and when you also adding the united the same undercover informant from the documentary is warning that not enough is being done now to tackle the fall. Far-right what really struck home for me was the this isn't a static story about one. Man is actually a story about the state's kind of continual failure to protect marginalized communities and the law of the lessons from that time very applicable now and particularly for policing as you mentioned earlier. You do see in the right wing. Press some of the same language as you get from these people. Katie hopkins not booted from the sun for using so the fascistic language about refugees. Meli phillips was mentioned in the manifesto of anders breivik. Now i don't know what it's like. I've never been quoted in the manifesto fascist mass murderer but should journalists be. If this is a rising threat do you think that journalists sort of oh it to the public to be more careful about their about the the language they use the tropes they use in the way. Of course we've come. Thankfully become a lot more sensitive to anti semitic ropes and most people are trying to avoid those. Did you think the sort of language that was may be that they could get away with when there was less of a sort of threat of real violence from the far right is should not be let through by sort medicine. Yeah i mean. I don't like falling into the trap of blaming the media for everything and obviously you know you do have good journalists on bad generous but i think the media does have to think about accountability. And i think that that is something that is often left out of the conversation. You know. it's not just kind of melanie. Phillips in katie hopkins last year there was an attack on an law center where someone was harmed because of what had been printed repeatedly about pretty brutal and her kind of statements about do lawyers on that kind of narrative was included in that manifesto which led to tackle law center. And i think what often happens in the media is that you get this kind of all. We need to have two sides approach. We have to hear people both sides in a debate on. I often get asked to do interviews. Which basically designed to turn into a screaming match on the rationale behind that as it gets good ratings. It's interesting bruce numbers on on the other side. I'm kind of thinking you know what happens when you will have stage or put the phone down in the accountability. Is it really necessary to hear the opinions in. Give it a platforms with hatred. Ridden message and i think that is basically the essence of the culture will all and i think the media is is really guilty of perpetuating and giving platform to voices whether the message can be heard by people he will take that much further so there has to be some kind of accountability and in how these decisions are made that point. You sometimes hear from jesus of light. That was good radio. It's like one of the most fucking pernicious toxic things because whenever they say they never say that about two people having a really constructive dialogue where they learn from each other and you inform the audience. They always tara fucking radio. They mean is just to bio filled screaming lunatics. Just going at one another and that's it that's bad on. Its own from because it's so there's no it's just that there's no nutrition in it for anyone listening but it's also very negative because what you end up incentivizing these really quite extreme voices. I didn't fuck i. I see radio. Scotland the other day on whether you should go on holiday and and there are other we someone against you so cooman just put him whatever. Because you think it's fucking respectable program right. They're not going to bring on sickness that's incorrect. Because they will that guy what it was like from the data records he was fucking like blistered with hatred towards me. I've no idea who the fuck and just hungers you fucking country you're using this is funny right..

"Nailbomb a manhunt which tells the story of far right terrorism in one thousand nine thousand nine and what it can teach us about rising right wing extremism today and in the extra bit. We'll be discussing a new study. Which shows that the better you think you are putting fake news. The more likely you are to fall for it that's true you'd have to look it up search patron. Oh god what. Now podcast to sign up and get extended detention every week without adds to i this week. Reports coming in all the time of e-systems being mistreated by k. Border officials even if they have proof of settles status correct visas and british passports on the way daniel trilling recently published a chilling guardian long read called cruel paranoid failing inside the home office. Twenty seven thousand offices thirty. Three thousand civil servants working borders immigration and citizenship which treading describes. Winning leah's popley state pot wealth estate and part moneymaking scheme other latest. There is proof of a dysfunctional system. Many millions of visitors now encountering a hostile environment for the first time potentially even with international travel at an all time low many publicly humiliated and locked up so significant percentage of a fairly small number. One told the guardian. I felt like i had landed in some enemy. State are is the problem here that the regulations and guidelines a salon workable. Yeah absolutely you know this really comes down to the home office on the policies that it has on the way that implements them. So you know the the environment in its existence is a horrendous. Compilation of policies are designed to stop people accessing support and is intended to force people out of the country to stop them entering in the first place. It's also been proven to directly caused racial discrimination. And it's what shop. The wind rush generation. The home office's commitment to that shows that it has malicious intentions. They've not back down on that policy at all and they're just bringing more people into it and then on top of that. I like to think of the home office. As kind of it's like a giant game of jenga so whenever there is a problem or a new issue with margraten policy direction. What tends to happen is just another. Layer policy is added on top of already chaotic policy. Now that makes it incredibly difficult for ordinary people on the ground and even a case workers within the home office to understand what they are supposed to be doing or what documents. They're supposed to check. And i think that is part of the reason why the home office has such a long history of being completely incompetent. Really satellites just likely to continue because there is no intention to get the home office in order. Many of these people held in short term detention facilities airports and seaports which have been deemed not fit for purpose by inspectors. What happens in these cases. What are they like. yeah so they are. They're essentially an extension of the detention estate. So every problem that you see in kind of bega. Detention centers like y'all's word is replicated to some extent in the short term holding facilities. So the places where people are held if they seem like they don't have the right to be in the uk before someone is able to determine what do a airports usually people coming flights. The ones seaports people. Usually come through irregular means that could be victims of trafficking or people who've come through asylum seekers now both force has oversight of these facilities and what that means in practice is that they are extremely shady with no accountability. the inspector of prisons to report into these sites. I think it was last year or in twenty nine team. A may found that the buddha force couldn't even tell them how many of these sites actually existed or how long people stay that so the people who are that they don't have access to legal advice that handcuffed that includes children and pregnant women staff have no training or assessment of what their needs. All the accommodation itself is often really squalid and not suitable for kind of any type of stay. I think really interesting. Is that the staff those sites themselves which is quite unique for kind of home office employees or civil servants. They have said that they feel forgotten and that there isn't any guidance of practice shed so it's just quite sounding that they exist with basically no scrutiny is. Obviously i mean it's it's worse for the people caught up in it. But as the world is reopening air travel is gonna come back. The economy is in desperate need of tourism. This seems like a very bad message for the uk to send to the rest of the world right. Don't come here on when i it's really important to me. It's really hard at the my when we talk about immigration. Did you. Don't wanna get into a game where you start separating out immigrant groups salah's position you want to be in and talking about different treatment but the situation where there is a feel a moral obligation to european citizens in the uk that is very pronounced on the basis of the fact that they were told you in the referendum. Nothing will change for you. They were told repeatedly by michael grove. By boris johnson. On the record is written down there fucking towed that now it turns out that that is not true now. Some bit is because of specific government choices. One of those choices is to not give them documentation. The reality is. If it's been it's been expanding you have an entire immigration system based around. Show me a fucking papers. Show me a papis..
"brexit" Discussed on Remainiacs - the Brexit Podcast
"It's also it has been a shock bean four year so i've been publishing articles saying that. Basically the pandemic is proof that we need to stop eating meat and We need to stop cutting down rainforests and what is absolutely true that we need to stop doing those things That doesn't may not have been the result of the reason for the pandemic is a sign of how you can adapt to most any circumstance to try to suit your political agenda. And i think that's unfortunately what happened. What also happened of course was that trump believed it and when trump believes they. I mean. it's understandable. You naturally skeptical about about it in some ways. It's quite good. I think that it didn't come out at the beginning of the pandemic that my son bit cynical but i think perhaps the anti china feeling might have been so strong that you could have seen quite a lot of potentially racist violence and attacks unpleasantness. There was already a lot of anti-china feeling back nokia. You may remember and had this. Been in any way proven. I think there would have been even more of that and certain actors would have seized on it and used it as an excuse to bash china but it is important to find out what happened because obviously if we don't if we don't know how it started and we can't stop the same thing happening again because it was also bad that i remember there was more extreme like the lab leak theory that i remember seeing being pushed by the american right was that they were developing the sorta logical super weapon. Now is probably why. I just dismissed it because there was like this kind of well. They were messing around. Michael crichton virgin. They were messing around with krona viruses. And they were potentially making them more infectious which you know. I'm sure there's good reason for that. So i typically but it is it is it is a dotty thing to do. And there are lab leaks. The case of smallpox in the uk in the seventies was because there was an oblique. It does happen chris. People working lab labs and then you know they go out when they stopped working there so yeah it is. It is possible. I doubt we'll ever be one hundred percent certain because the chinese states stanley so secretive about it but It's it's completely plausible. Meanwhile the government has just announced one point four billion pounds for one hundred million hours of post pandemic catch up jewish in with sounds pretty good until you divided by the number of children to which content will do i. I've so fucking angry about this. And i after i'd have to start doing any and swearing constantly about is like fifty quid a child. I mean that is how much you would routinely pay for tuition if you're trying to get your kitten to a private school. Grandma's gonna weather for one hour and this is pure child for catching up with what is often more than six months missed schooling. It is just fucking risible. I mean it's not peanuts. It's like grains of sand is like. I don't know how to express how pathetic this they've spent so much you know The treasury has spent so much on you know on furlough keeping keeping the country sorta going through the pandemic why why is now when it's trying to allow Children's catch up with their education. Time to kind of tighten the belts because it's not the middle classes are going to be worst affected and it's always about the middle classes. I mean they threw money at middle tarsus. They spent more than you know. They've by march. They had already spent three point three billion on the stamped. Ut waiver which basically shoved the cost of of house has is up by ten percent in the last year and was among to property owners and that was completely unnecessary. When people you know those people sitting at home keeping their jobs or on furlough anyway. They were not the people who needed that money but they still did it. The people who need kids who need this money and not the middle middle classes does well be right. You know they'll they'll just pay for extra tuition themselves because that's what they do and it's the people it's the kids who didn't turn up for zoom lessons. I mean you know. I watch i watch my daughter on zoom lessons when they started. There weren't any in the first lock down the third there were a third of the kids. Weren't even on the call you know. They took an afternoon off one day to try to to ring round those parents to try and get their kids to attend the core. They weren't even on the cool. Even if you consider a zoom call an acceptable substitute for the the what they were getting in the lesson and a lot of them were just spending the time. What's happening during the zoo corner turning off the camera anyway. Even if you think that it's just risible to think that that is in any way an adequate way to enable kids to catch up with a vast amount. They've lost a lot. Them did not do home schooling home. Schooling was a thing for the middle classes and the lucky and it was not a thing for the rest and it. Just it makes me so angry. I don't believe government has brought his record. Rose we have some good news and confirmation of your psychic powers that the education recovery commissioners kevin collins. The up saw has resigned. This latest snafu. Excellent though is good news. I should say that there is not a great record embarrassed. Johnson's government of resignations leading to change. But let's hope. This is a bit of a marcus rushed at moments where it does bring about change and let's hope it doesn't happen. Is that johnson now. Insert some pliable individual into that role. Who will do exactly what he tells him to this week. On the show the immigration environment on the uk boorda gets evermore hostile will uk border falls. Detaining e citizens a minor pretexts.

"brexit" Discussed on Italian Wine Podcast
"For for Yes i as i said earlier. I don't think wait yet on How it is we. We're very short. What you three months. And as i said because coded whistle lockdown We go to restaurants ellum. So i don't think we're seeing any of that yet I think costs as as daniel van but who was mentioned by. Richard elliott has estimated costs. Because of the handling will go up. Now how significant that his alexander said if you're buying expensive bottles of baroda over nila that that won't be a significant addition. If you're selling wines act the From southern italy. Sicily the any sense price that may well be a significant change I think really has the advantage over many other countries. In the sense that you're not a lot of winds are not interchangeable. Peanut gratiot might be a lot of the other people onto talion wine. You can't get an alternative to that from chile or australian -sarily very easily But i think the relationships as richard has intimated people are going potentially buying few a smaller range of wines and potentially from vegas supplies So people who've been quite happily supplying uk clients with maybe a few cases of winding. You may find that more difficult to do in the future but one thing. I would say. Chris priestly before policy of to rich marketing I do not rely on generalists anywhere in the world anymore I think any winery has to do much more of his own marketing. And i think that's going to be particularly true in the uk. Richard shelby question. Being the austin is the importer old preferred supplier status. So you reciters restaurant where they will have they have a conaway would call it prefers with law basely that comfortable working list. And they know that they have all the The ability to handle this ministration and all the changes and the moonlight you to want to buy more wines from those preferred supplies says i think there's going to be really important foreign pulled for producers to make sure the hoping pool to buy those claimed preferred supplies a lot. Not just be happy with an impulsive. You may have good rankles. All omay who made the past tonight could try recold. Kinds forwards is going to be much rounds Whip you working with a few supplies.

"brexit" Discussed on The Vance Crowe Podcast
"Don't know this but in the us the senate used to not be elected it used to be appointed by the house of the of the state and so the state was sending you and then later they turned it into an election and so it just became really a house of representatives members that Had a longer term or maybe a little bit more power so it's interesting that the uk is kept your Your appointment system. That's right i mean. I think the problem is that if you had elections for the house of lords which some people would argue would-be a progressive before the difficulty is is it would just simply endo replicating house of commons is kind of weird the purpose of it and so in some ways i just think abolish it you even though i at least job because i thought in the end you know it doesn't. He doesn't able to be representative. It can scrutinize but it takes its role too far and in eight say they pull all paid attendance allowance with going in then paying the salary but dependent. Attendance allowance didn't have to in and it just seems to me show up each day and then you get paid for it. Or what does that mean. S you got paid if you show and obviously joining carbon crisis does not very many people setting up and there's a kind of hof payment system if you if you turn vising to join in the guy tried to. I've tried to avoid being cynical about it. I mean i. I tried to show no because of the money. I tried to become work environment. Is she kind of started. I think in october. And i still run the company days and what i consider layers of time at the house of lords timing and i thought you were just a spectator. There actually didn't understand when i would see you talking. I thought wow. They wanted clear to speak again. That's crazy so i wondered what you're doing. You're doing this and all of the academy idea. Yeah so when you said that. The house of lords has the ability to throw a bunch of roadblocks in for brexit. And that's kind of what you have navigating through. What did they throw up. And how are you now through it. So i think for a period of time. I think maybe for your audience to understand when the referendum happening twenty sixteen. It was not expected that the vote would go to leaving the european union in the build up to that referendum massive the establishment all of the main political parties very practically everybody respectable as it were all that we should stay in the european union previously been quite critical of the european union. Ended up arguing to stay and this included the holy university vice-chancellor as science open as i can also has i really felt as the the there was hardly anyone in respectable society as it were set in amongst the ruling elites and the media elites he would for it so as a real shock to the system when leave warn in two thousand sixteen and for the vast period of time. I think it was pretty obvious where it's those who leave just because we were asked to constitution question. We decided that we wanted to leave. We just thought it would be an active soon. Became clear that there was a pretty determined efforts to stop always leaving the european union. Komo may i than sit down. Our relationship or rule to leave would make that factum factory stayed connected to the european union absolutely in a variety wise not caused huge amounts of bitten. Somebody would just arguing. To overturn the votes. Were every time anything that would occur. The house of lords would vitality and show that you couldn't just leave that you know they would just constantly saying no..
