Alex Berenson: Vaccinated People Under 60 Are Twice as Likely to Die Than Unvaccinated
"So what's going on in England? Not the United Kingdom just England. Of course, Fauci does not care about data, Fauci is an ideologue. He's a pathological individual. Never has to be cross examined about what's really happening. According to Alex berenson, vaccinated English adults under 60. Are dying at twice the rate of unvaccinated people the same age. And has been that case for 6 months. This chart may seem unbelievable, or impossible, but it's correct based on weekly data from the British government. Could we get that do we have the chart that we could put up on screen? I'll experience in rights I have checked the underlying dataset myself and the graph is correct. Vaccinated people under 60 are twice as likely to die as unvaccinated people. The overall deaths in Britain are running well above normal. Do you see that? That people who are unvaccinated are actually doing better against the foushee virus than people who are vaccinated. And we saw this entire saga also unfold in Israel, months ago. Why aren't we allowed to talk about this? Why is this not the number one news story in the country?

Liverpool Explosion: Blast Is Declared a Terrorist Act
"In Liverpool, a cabbie notices that his passenger appears to be a suicide bomber. And we're putting up the tape. If you have downloaded the Salem news channel, you will now be watching the video of what happened. The Salem news channel is an app that you ought to get every day because I show you videos like this that no one else in America asks because they don't get up early enough to do the news. So in Liverpool, the cabbie gets a guy gets into his car and he looks him in the back. You know, cabbies, we'll get you. Look at they always look into way and they say, who is this guy in my car? Because he looks like Lex Luthor meets the band director. And so this guy gets in the car and he figures out that the direct, the direction being given, he Edmund quota, his name is Dave Perry. Somehow the terrorist suicide bomber gives it away. Maybe his coat was bulked up. So I want to go to remembrance Sunday at the hospital. He wanted to go to somewhere where they were doing. It's called remembrance Sunday and Great Britain. They also have an 1111 remembrance day, but then the Sunday after there are church services and gatherings in its poppy day, where you wear the red poppy and remember it's a World War I. Cabbie figures it out. Drives to where he figures he can jump out and run and let the car drift and he did. He jumped out, let the car roll to a stop at a traffic circle. Where there was no person, car blows up, killing the suicide bomber and nobody else. And the terrorist police are arresting everybody in

'Eurotrash' Author David Harsanyi Shares His Thoughts on Brexit
"Welcome back to one on one with mitigated columnist David harsanyi. Well, let's grasp the nettle by the thorn Brexit. What does Brexit mean? Is it the last saving grace? Is it the Hail Mary? Or is it irrelevant in terms of the Euro trash ideas of the continent? Because at the end of the day, it's not the continent. It's the UK and it's the UK rejecting the bad ideas. Well, what is the geo strategic or historic import of those 17 million breaths saying thanks, but no thanks. Now, as you know, the British have always been a poor fit I think in the European Union or fit, the French didn't really even want them to be part of it initially. They are far more far less controlled than ever took on the currency. They're more free market oriented in general. The British are my favorite my favorite people in Europe because we come from them. We are their spawn. We have there. It's their ideas that made America great. I think they manifested in more better ways here in the long run and the British sort of abandoned many of them, but in general I'm a fan and I'm a fan of Brexit. But does it really change much? I don't think so. I mean, the so called conservatives in Britain are just in Europe, there is no real ideological right. There is a nationalistic right, perhaps. There is sort of a status right. But there aren't very many classical liberals on the right. There are some, I'm not saying, but when you have these governments, it's usually just once status party against another, which is what's happening now, probably in Britain for the most part. So I don't think it changes much in the trajectory of Europe itself. Obviously, it's different. I'm a bigger fan of Britain than Germany, but in the end, neither cold a torch to hold a candle to the United
"britain" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"In britain. Things are running out milkshakes. From mcdonald's chicken from a chain called nen does which kind of only sells chicken and this week. Petrol bombs me about forty miles left tank. I'm not gonna have enough fuel. Britain's have wasted untold hours queuing up at the station the six. Am in the morning. People queued up pitcher undecided. People guide crazy man. I swear just typical isn't that this always happens of is not toilet rows. Now it's federal. This is a circus prime minister. Boris johnson insisted that supplies were now on track. We now assaulting to see the situation improved. I would just really urge everybody to just go by that business. In the in the noble way and industry experts suggest that shortages could linger for months. A constellation of international causes to blame here and unlocking global supply chain hiccups. A lack of workers. Those frustrations are affecting plenty of countries. But britain has one more thing working against it brexit so towards the end of last week there were reports that a few petrol stations in britain had run out of petrol. So rumors began that this was the start of a wind. Shortage duncan weldon is economists. British economics correspondent the government were very keen to say there is no shortage of petrol. But it's a bit like the dynamics of a bank run. Isn't it when someone tells you. There is no shortage people here shortage. They don't hear no shortage and the british public at the moment or a bit frazzled. How do you mean how are the people frazzled. Petrol is not the first thing that's been running short. They spring this early summer. We saw shortages of construction materials. We saw shortages of computer chips and in the last few weeks it's really came home to the high street. We've seen weatherspoon's big pub chain start to run out of certain types of beer. These shortages of been here for the year and petro is just the latest. And you know. I don't want to encourage people to panic buying overseas a rational economics correspondent at the economist. I don't like to think that i panic. But when i saw queues at petrol stations. I did no panic buying. But what i like to think of as dynamic personal inventory management and topped up my car. So let's let's wind back from your dynamic inventory management and and talk about what has caused all of these shortages one on one level. Jason it's really straightforward. What we've seen is that as restrictions have been eased as we come after the pandemic demand has recovered much faster than supply. And you'll see exactly what you'd expect. You'll seeing some production bottlenecks yo saying some shortages and using quite a big pickup in british inflation so consumer price inflation. The usual measure was running at an annual rate of under one percent at the south of the year by july it was back above two percent and the bank of england expects inflation to be before percent by the end of this autumn continuing fred the winter. And then you've seen some more specific problems you've seen this chip shortage globally hitting coproduction. You've seen a lumber shortage globally at the start of the year hitting construction and then some more specific factors but yet seems to be this almost revolving carousel of different shortages. Week have two week. That seem to be sort of coming together like london buses in britain. But the the other thing about britain's story is that it's also dealing with lingering continuing affects of brexit. How does that figure yes. So britain left the european single market in the european customs union. At the very start of this year. Now we didn't get that cliff edge off car crash that some people had warned about instead. What we're having is more like a a slow loss of tire pressure. And it's taking a while for that defeat fru. It's really hard to separate the brexit impact from the pandemic impact. But it's that some european small and medium-sized businesses have already decided. It's just not worth the hassle of exporting to britain but the key brexit impact with feeling immediately is a shortage of lorry-drivers. And what's behind that. Why that a key example here. So britain relies on about six hundred thousand drivers with licenses to drive heavy goods vehicles. Big lorries keep the country running. That's what's caused the petrol shortage this week. A shortage of drivers now at the moment the industry thinks where sure too bad one hundred thousand drivers about forty percent of that you can blame on the impact of the pandemic that lots of driving tests was suspended so people simply haven't but the rest is not just a pandemic impact working as a heavy goods vehicle driver. In britain as much of the world is not a particularly pleasant job it involves long antisocial hours and the wages many people have decided simply don't compensate doing. The industry has become more reliant. In recent years on european workers we had a pandemic many of these european drivers have returned to their own country and suddenly we find ourselves shoot about one hundred thousand drivers. And that's what's behind the bee shortage at weatherspoon's that's what's behind the petrol shortage this week. Just not enough people to physically move these goods around the country so some big structural changes some random unlucky changes in some sort of slow burn changes yet to reach their worst. I mean in the bigger picture. How long will all of this last. So people are looking at the moment at the shortage of hd drivers as know the oil lubricates this. Let's of move around the country now. The government is enhanced the make more than five thousand temporary visas available for. Hdtv drivers to come over from europe. Now in the context of a shortage of one hundred thousand drivers. Five thousand isn't a very big number and these are just freeman visas. Which will last until christmas eve of a european countries have their own shortages of. Hdtv drivers at the moment it's unclear. How appealing moving to britain for just three months and then being deported on christmas eve. It's going to be. The industry is making efforts to train. New drivers wages of ghana. But it takes a while to learn how to reverse one of these vehicles on instant fix and what about the other shortages though beyond the drivers now the general sense at the in the retail sector in amongst manufacturers as these shortages will ease. The economy will adjust we will see wages rising and pulling workers to the sectors where they need to be but this could take six to twelve months. And it's very hard at the moment to predict where the next pinch wanting to be. And you know what britain economics correspondent will be writing about next week. Where is the next shortage but other shortages will. I'm afraid pot up over the next few months until we get on top of this. What does all this mean for the prime minister. Do you think could it. Could it shake his support. You know the time of the year. When boris johnson pledges tease save. Christmas seems becoming earlier and earlier. Doesn't it. I mean last year it was about covered this year. It's a bad shortages. We want to do is make sure that we have all the preparations necessary to get through to christmas. And beyond nor just in the supplying the petrol stations but all pulse. We've already seen at matthews. The single biggest turkey producer britain. Worry about shortage of turkey. This christmas now. The boris johnson government sometimes appears to be levitating with very high polling rate. Despite all of these things going wrong but you do wonder for how long that can continue now. The pandemic was a global thing. Lots of these shortages were experiencing this autumn do appear to be specifically british.

And just a few things you said. How many wouldn't really be drawn on lopez. He was like what he's like as as a writer but he did say oh so easy just to he. He was saying he was travelling to britain and he was watching on his laptop in an airport. Hotel bob or whatever and yeah from from the From that perspective it looks absolutely crazy. But you just don't know what's going on in with the right. An inroad as minds and also talking to max a sense of just. What a at so traditional outfit mavi star are and i completely understand if they did let him go because they just want to keep the boat steady moving forwards one. Little thing that max said was the tha inside the truck at the tour of poland. There's a a cabinet with all the tools in this is the mechanics truck and inside that cabinet in one of the drawers has an immaculate set of campania tools from the one thousand nine hundred ninety s. And when you're out in the case of that Tool kit inside just slipped in top is a sheet of paper with miguel indurain measurements bite measurements just written on in pen. And that's just been kept in there for thirty plus years Just in case it caused by he comes back. I mean a spot on the team. Potentially next year i don't know but i just think i'm quite critical. Sometimes of movie star you know tactics and just the fact that they do seem to be quite old school. Pabst stuck in the past in some ways But i also think that they're just that sort of a spanish of unannounced all that galleon a spanish galleon. That's just now. Yeah it's made out of nineteen seventies would on nine thousand nine hundred a still a sea worthy vessel and they just want they just want to keep it going in the way that they want to keep it going. I suppose the grown up so if if if lopez he's not happy with the team and the team and not happy with lopez and then find a solution. That's best for all parties. But i really wasn't up probably a few years ago. I would have been in the camp of like well. That's that's a completely unreasonable. Downing of tools by lopez biden maybe. I'm just mellowing a bit as i get older. If he's entirely to stop the race and with that come consequences the there are a lot of unknowns here as well. This unspoken or rumored subplot about south american riders in the history of south. American roy on a movie star and carapace having left under a bit of a cloud and nihro cantata before him as well and in the last week..

There's been a lot of hype expectation hope invested in these world championships being flanders. And am. but it's been a very difficult time for everywhere but in flanders in particular the races last year were behind closed doors effectively 'em so they're hoping for big crowds and international crowds as well bob interest see to what extent that happens so yeah babe roadside experience at the road champships as well next week. We've always introducing introducing law bernie to come out at some point. Needs to be heavily edited loads of bits needs to be redacted. Exactly that'd be sort of minutes of silence that one just where stuff that congo out wo we'll knock it into some kind of shape and put out off to pie rebuy at some point. They of committed to it now just just ten months after. It was recorded rich brilliant. Listen at another thing. I should mention is episode service course with lizzie by somali. That was released today. That's monday as we record is an absolutely brilliant episode. Absolutely loved it includes. It's kind of crossover with explore. Because lizzie banks went to all points north A racist north race over a thousand kilometers and she meets some of the writers as as they star unfinished. It's a great listen. She'll speaking to martina out zany italian member of the team pursuit team at the olympics. And tom's got report from euro bike. So loads and service course. They'll be another episode service course next week as well during the world championship week. Also episode of the second podcast femina life in the panel tone and the regular episodes. So lots to come next week before this glut of friends specials. And we're moving on from the tour of britain but you you mentioned zander. Graham at lionel. The the kids who was handed the beat on by paschal and lots of calls for paschal ain't corn to be awarded peddler ducharme mug. Am i think stacy schneider would love to do that. So maybe we'll try and facilitate it was. It was a spontaneous gesture wasn't and it was well done by paschal and corn and and had an amazing response. Which i'm sure he never anticipated but we had the european championships last week as well. So slightly strange timing. I was interested to see that there was no british team. There may have been a big partly because of the clash with tour of britain. And resources thing on a timing thing with the world championships. Coming up and the men's road race was a real humdinger. And it really did Merit watching from a good couple of hers. I if you haven't seen that you can watch it on up maybe on your gdn player. I it was. It was a great race and a fast fascinating bathroom. Then between remco. Even the pull and sony cobb rally and my uncle used to have a little dog. The am when you went to visit his highest used to cling around your ankle. And no matter what he couldn't shake it off. That reminded me that. Not image falls into my mind as i watched a tried to write cub rally office wheel up the climb a chuckle quiz question. Chris precedent for you. Know what the name of local code What is would. Who's the odd one. Out between powell tonko steffano piazzi laws bom and remco available this year to some deal with that only i sure you. Yeah remco so. I mean i feel guilty for bring this up because i think it was a gesture that was directed at nothing particularly gem frustration. Rather than how's it might have seemed initially at sony called borelli. Remco did digestion and in italy while literally doing the umbrella. Which is you sort of puts one hand in kind of hollow of your album. I sort of well. It's kind of pure gesture. Isn't it and various rods. Have done this in racist but in all of the other cases only other right as i mentioned. They've done it to celebrate race. Winds petanque of jiro in two thousand and four stefanos piazzi in the year in two thousand fourteen when he wanted inventory. It'll and then lost beaumont. Annika two thousand seventeen but there's they saw the there are. There's a certain implication that comes with all of this. Not just a celebration as is also you know take my. Yeah there's Yeah i mean it's a. It's a fairly aggressive gesture. And but it was in a luke like yeah even. The pool was not very happy. I think it was frustration. Yeah i was. I was reassured by his comments. After he was pretty magnanimous. I mean as usual people ready to sort of cool him spoil. Brian saying he's being petulant. And this was disgraceful. When there were of italian online who are pretty upset. Because he's very offensive gesture. Ashley as far as italians are concerned but as i say i think he was pretty generous in his praise of cobra. Leonie completely understood. Come call bradley. Been fast sprinter but the inferior nominally inferior climber and certainly the he wasn't the guy who was attacking repeatedly on the climb then called called bradley was entitled to just trying clean on Sink his teeth. Inter remco ankles and just pacing motor paced. That's not to not to suggest anything taller. Ram from the just the you know having the polls one chance of winning was to to to ride them off his wheel which is a really hard thing to do and not not. He doesn't have the jump to Attacked him repeatedly. It was just he he had to. Just you know just just grind and try not to distance matted with costner for call bradley clearly in fantastic form manage to just just about high on. Es ritchie well he's having the season of his career Called borelli of course talion national champion. Same same sequence of events The giacomo solo enjoyed last year. wasn't it. He became tiny national champion. European national champion european champion and therefore didn't really get too wet be tiny national champions jersey frame but completely of course i mean. He was one on stars of the twitter. Franz wasn't even without winning stage and then won the till he was actually he actually wanted to. Go to the vuelta. He's convinced by his team. That the tour would be a better idea and bala counties while he's lost weight this year has become a much much less of a pure sprinter. Actually of a climate know. I said earlier in the episode wondered. Who ethan hater might resemble might come to resemble my already resemble and sunny cobra is actually know about matchy as sort of a sprinter who can sell climates quite punchy uphill but yea cobra as a writer who is. He was changing evolving becoming veteran batteries. Thirty one now on has become one of the top performance. For what a bahrain victorious team. That's just an extraordinary season. I was being too rod. Illingworth ashley about at the welter ailing with causes left bahrain. He's no longer the team principal there but he said in the previous eighteen months. Kobe was someone who had really embraced. This sort of new way of working in that team and by all accounts rob rolf aldag. Arriving in that team at the start of the seasons also had a big impact on various. Different writers called berlin..

"To but you mentioned great arm lionel. I mean yet. The spectators who were there and produced a great shot from from simon gill up there. You know any any if you bite race and you you witness the the race being decided on the climb between vr and juvenile felipe. You're you're being treated to the the best spectacle. Cycling can offer really at the moment so that was that was terrific to watch and you know the the m the the boss that make bannon always makes about the races that it's an exciting race. Because of the small teams six man teams which in many cases were reduced by crashes or other things going on 'em it did produce quite compelling spectacle on the on the final stage in particular which might not have been compelling breakaway away in a chase behind but the chase was was complicated by his mom had only four writers laughed at point. I'm one of them. George bennett for the chase on the flights to bring quite a quite strong break by they had. They had help oversee from the quake but they also have to manage their resources carefully. So it did. That was another little ingredient. I think that made the the weak and the racing more exciting yet. Just on ethan hater before we move on i mean when i say i thought the great or might be his undoing. That was just because i walked up the climate not a particular section wes photo was taken and it's a picture of vinyl and ala lead predominantly as they enter the right hand bend which is really very steep I thought that might be a bit much rain. But we you know we forget that I'd rather forgotten until you mentioned it. When i spoke to him after one of the stages that last year he crashed welcome. Which of course was at the end of the season Because of kobe and broke his leg. And i think tore his ankle ligaments. And so you know that's not a simple thing to come back from and then of course it whole summer was based around The olympic games and the team pursuit. And so you know just to be unsure whether he would transition pack from the trap to the road but when you look at results over the course of the season is being very impressive particularly in state races he was fourth Copy off stage race back in march. He was second in the volta out. Garvey he was seventh in rooted. Oh saul he won the two of norway and then just. Before the tour of britain he was fourth. In britain classic one day race behind causing wa allah philippe honore so clearly in fantastic form and any grenadiers had the resources to try and take it to yamba visa and i thought they they wrote a very smart week but as you say the thing about You know the the feeling at the end of the race when he reached a conclusion of think. Yeah that was a really good week. Tracing the icing on the cherry on the top is the fact that it was venar. Julian elderly both on the podium. And when you look at the most recent winners of the tour of britain the law three winners vendor pool and alpha leap. I mean he combs fair the night. The the only thing any else could have maybe done on the final days put ruined dance in the breakaway and that would have would have complicated the chase 'em although and putting someone in a breakaway mesa. It signed a lot easier than than is in reality. Now line will you weren't. You weren't just saying a mini break where you weren't there in holiday gallivanting around you were you were putting a recording things you remember your recorder and you're you're making a friend special episode.

Bryson's publishes and over the copyright. Now i'm going to coach notes from a small island but certainly i was out doing from a small island. I was doing the tough work rich. Sampling cornish pasties and cream cheese in some over here and try corners. Passi introduced him to hp sauce. I'd probably my one regret is Because because of circumstances. I wasn't able to go all the way to aberdeen. I would've loved to go into the rice it. Was you know it was great to be on the road and to see britain changing as much as the rice on folding gain. Better headed to scotland baio down. Save the ages. Sorry about that. Scotland a bit to on scotland. This year on tiber. I will hope hopefully make amends for that. In twenty against scotland lionel. Nothing at all. And i'm gonna make a french special. I think to put out once the racing season ends and kind of the memories of the week of kind of faded a little and hopefully bring them vividly back to life again. But i think we can hear one interview that you did with Donna marston writing his loss tour of britain. Because as you said he he's the most. I think an announcement that surprise a few people am that he would retire at the end of the season. Because he's he's a good seat doesn't eight won a stage at the. Jiro and this will be his last season. So shall we hear from donmar tonight how you doing. How do you feel.

"So that's a very exciting development for super sapiens and we are very pleased to have them as title sponsor. Thank you very much to them. At the tour of britain then chops It was a race that really caught my attention. I mean i i came home from the vuelta. There was that little overlap. As you said lionel it was it was a great field that they had put together You know i kind of am a mix and match really of some world through teams in some british domestic teams in one or two con pra continental teams from a broad called proteins. Now aren't they and that. That combination seemed to work really. Well you know you're you're jillian allah phillipe's and your white mark. Cavendish is to give the race real star quality. Give it some sparkle and you had these teams in these writers who were for whom this was a massive massive opportunity. There is something for everybody there. Something at state for everybody. It seemed to me and and some great stories. You robin carpenters stage when the breakaway as the writers who you know. They weren't meaningless breakaways for those riders or teams. There was a lot at stake in this race. And and probably. That's because we didn't have a tour of britain last year. The seemed to be a lot riding on this one both from an organization point of view and for the teams in the writers and all worked really well great weather and fantastic stages Look great it was a it was a. It was a brilliant race to watch on the tally last week. Yeah and i think the atmosphere out on the court the starts and finishes really made as well. You mentioned to weather and not being on the to britain in the past when the weather has not being particularly kind of rain here in that it's britain in September the but the crowds were big The atmosphere was great. I mean you know right from the start really the finish into bodmin really set the tone because it was a sort of town centre. Finish up hill made for wealth and of course but the crowds are out and felt like You know obviously britain like everywhere. I was being locked indoors for so long because of tovia. Did it feel like people were just shaking off as much as anything and just great to see people riding out to all the points on the course. I was traveling with simon gail photographer. Friend so i wasn't doing this conventional start and finish every day we were we were heading out onto the court to go and see the first day komu was pretty murky and sunday really shine until we got out means Lend even the cornish hills and countryside us quite haunting quality the stage to exeter over. Dr was fantastic as always as and just again i. How sort of enjoying the sunshine in a crowd watching and waiting for the race just like the spectators and just seeing the The the excitement builders the helicopter came overhead and the the the advanced motorcycles were were clearing the capital of the road and onto the onto the more the race get speed. Pass safely it. Ju just felt very three d experience. Maybe that's just my perspective. Because i've been so much this year not being the the grand tours as much as you guys have but yeah i really enjoyed it and say i think great arm is key by any bike race in the world could finish up and you would get a a great finish You know it was sort of climbed that You could slot into a one day classic and have a brilliant rice and so credit to the to the organizers for only finding it but you know getting the the the the people who need to get permission for such things to happen on side so that it could happen and in terms of actual race itself. Ethan hater i thought was the revelation of the week really. I wasn't entirely sure how good a climate he would be. I thought the great all might be the end of his overall challenge. But it wasn't at all you know. He's right up there on the shoulders of vinyl allah felipe and that made over the last three days of the race. It was nip and talk with a height would hold on with vanilla would find a way and in the end that sprint finish into abidine. It was just a little bit of pop poor positioning just in the wrong place. Got boxed in a bit. didn't he. hater he needed to finish second or third To hold final out But it wasn't to be an awkward time bonus and as he put it won the stage ahead of two legends. Andre gripe among cavendish. Yeah it was a race at everything including cavendish up the road in a break and being typically cash wasn't a on that stage stage six. You know getting frustrated. The the the motorbike was in the wrong position helping the rice influencing the racing and aiding chase not pat something that he would have complained about too often. If the boot on the other and even in the bunch. I don't know who harsh i understand. Loss week mark come. The candidate introduced junior to hp sauce and cottage pie and it was framed for both of those items. I'll be developed elite. Yeah what happens you on our discovered. Hp source and the author in twenty one. It was interesting to see. Hey wasn't wasn't it. Sandwiched in between those two right is final and our fleet because you know the this is particularly necessary. But it's the kind of speculation like to indulge in to sort of think about if he has if he's going to have us of analog whether it's going to be more honestly typewriter punch erc climber i suppose or sort of sprint puncher which as vinyl is effectively i mean. He's very similar some respects to both of those too. But there's probably. I'm probably forgetting someone that's probably better equivalent Who wasn't right near the tour britain. Someone world-class rider. Maybe a peter. Saigon book He suddenly someone who looks. He's going to be a major major factor in classics races. Certainly for the next few years. I don't know whether he whether he thinks he's going to be more of a cobbled classics ride or hilly classics ride. I mean increasingly these young writers that we're emerging at defying confounding Categories tempts to categorize them and pigeonholes to we've traditionally used and yeah i mean he's come through the track at program as well as you just back from matt spike from tokyo and we spoke to him just after he'd returned from token i think he was unsure by you. Know how have his track former translate onto the road and it was still uncertain whether he would go to the world championships. I think there might be a chance. Now that even senator pyro bay after the world championships to to try and not race am base is clearly in terrific form. I think my impression was. He seemed quite surprised to find himself in that company. To but you mentioned great arm lionel. I mean yet. The spectators who were there and produced a great shot from from simon gill up there..

Hello yeah explores being on an extended holiday hasn't it but It will be coming back. We've got some because some orange the fire now haven't we well. It's coming very soon because we have gone all the time from our woman who won the gbi. Judo and that is being turned into an episode as we speak so Not becoming very soon on on more episodes as well as explore. But you're doing some exploration lionel iran. The tour of britain you were you were there for the first half of the race. At least i was. It was really good richard. Yes long while chuck being out and about round great britain and normally ever since we started daily coverage of the welte the to britain and the wealth of completely clashed. haven't they where there was still an overlap. The first stage of the tour britain was on the same day as a final stage. Well but yeah. I had the opportunity to go for a few days and really enjoyed it down in the west country first of all in the first time the britain is being in cornwall since the days of the milk race And then worked. Its way up into devon and the round into wild and i have to say the stage that finished on the great ormond did no was. I thought outstanding really really great finish. It was sort of belgian classic. Meets a sort of breadth on stage of the to france while most and with a with of uniquely welsh character as well and i suppose to take away jimbo. Visa won the race. They won the hearts and minds of just about everybody. Who's ever been interested in cycling when pascal in corn gave a beat onto a young cyclist. Who is keeping up with the break on one of the stages handed a beat onto him but looking at the the way the race shaped up in the end without venar winning very difficult on british roads. I think to von proof tour. Britain tell bona season pump. She climbs all basically his bag. Aren't they are so yeah. Gatien was von artificial. Daniel does that. Does i am what. What do we call a race. That can't be venar. Proofed the tour of britain. That's one possibly the suckling podcast almanac or something. Where we invent words. What's one of those books. Well we'll get back to that will have to get our our brains working. It looked. it looked great. They're not always. Blessed by good weather is a and it was lucky with lucky with weather. And some you know some major stars. I think that that helped me make the race As enthralling it was ale kind of seem to fall into place. And i guess we'll we'll talk about it to britain in the first part won't we. I think the team Britain deserve credit for putting the the race on 'em in the way that it did because they missed a year last year. Of course because of cova. Dan you know. I think it must have been very very difficult to organize and on the tour britain this year and they've got the women's tour coming up in a few weeks as well on a thing will happen. The last week augurs well for that. So well done make bennett. And the team i guess. And we'll be talking about birth in. I par part and then we'll be talking about european road race. Championships are really exciting. Men's race there and the final part will be looking at the world champion obey and talking about some of the the transfer comings and goings and bought before all that. Have you got a news. Roundup for us please lionel. Well start with the tour of britain. As i say well for not one overall he took four of the stages on the way as well and clinched on the final day with time. Bonus in aberdeen traded. The lead is blue jersey with any us. Grenadiers ripetta ethan hater. Any had won the team time. Trial which put height to into the lead for the first time van then took the lead the great ormond then hater. Benefited you on the stage in warrington. He benefited from the fact that van art was caught behind the crash on the running there and then he held the lead for two days but couldn't quite see the job through to the end up. Probably wake up against it. Just because van was to the quickest sprinter in the race and he was hoovering up those time bonuses but as you say rich it was really enthralling addition of the two britain this year. I think and as you also said the fact that you know covet canceled it last year. Britney's not the easiest place in europe to put on a st race just because of the density of population and and You know the difficulty of funding the whole thing. So yeah Onto mac bennett and co for getting the race. On this year The european championships were in trento in italy and shawny co bradley followed up. He's a recent over wind in the benelux tour where he'd beaten mortgage by winning the road race he would pau and nine man break. The had some real power in a talion teammate. Mattia in they've also took the front champion. Paul gotcha mart. Hershey pacific of bete-noire cozy four and remco ever pool and that break whittled down as i went over the climb of the povo and until it was three left out in front of nepal called belly and coaching four.

"Which cameron wished to betray today. Seven years on from that press conference and almost two decades after the initialling in beijing britain and the west can only sit back and surveyed the ruins of all. they tried to build in afghanistan. The hand-wringing the finger pointing the i was writing. And how did we get it so wrong. Continue for weeks months years. Perhaps for a generation the chief victims of this tragedy are of course the afghan people now seemingly consigned after decades of bloodshed to life under the most repressive of islamist ratings here in westminster. This crushing failure is felt most keenly among those devoted time and energy impassioned to the new afghanistan who risked their lives to try to secure it to rebuild it or he formed close bonds with people living there an scrambling to escape the chaos. So for the first episode of this podcast the season. I'm speaking some of those in westminster who know afghanistan on the british mission. Their best and for whom the events of the past two weeks of cut particularly deep restrict the former cabinet minister in with. Mpa who famously spent weeks working solo across afghanistan and the aftermath of the two thousand one war. This is a totally responsible. Reckless thing with no transition place. Extraordinary in it's heartbreaking. Tom to can heart the tumbridge. Mp and select committee chairman. He spent four years in afghanistan during the late two thousands. I thought we could do it. Not because of who we were. But who've who the afghans were and are dan jarvis the south yorkshire man and barnsley. Mp spent months in helmand. Province is a british army major. The situation was so dangerous that literally every day. You wondered whether you'd they get to the end of the day. How do those whose lives have been so closely matched with the afghan campaign. Reflect on the events of the past few weeks with the taliban back in charge was any of it worth it. And after the scene's we've watched unfold on television screens this week. We ever try anything like this again from politico. I'm jack blanchard. And this.

"Orange juice it's true. The back-and-forth enforce continued throughout the day. This bill is somewhat different from the one. Johnson tried and failed to get through parliament. Only a couple of months ago. There's no possibility the of extending negotiations with the EU beyond the end of next year. Some say this is a tactic by Johnson to show voters and European leaders. That he means business. Oh this fear. It has old negotiation cards over to Europe. Opposition politicians like Labour's Henry. Ben Worry it could all end up in a no deal. BREXIT scenario. The negotiations are anything but simple. They become extremely complicated. And that's why I said that I thought the government is taking a big gamble with the future the economy because if they don't achieve this deal by December next year then we're looking once again at no deal. The new bill also drops a promise to align worker's rights with the EU lows and there's abandon vow to protect child refugees seeking to unite with their families.

"Amazing and pretty much beyond our expectations On that level does stories more today here on the world. I'm Marco Werman. This is the world. Great Britain remains is in the hands of prime minister. Boris Johnson but with a stronger grip than before Johnson's Conservative Party notched a landslide victory with a simple message get brexit done and so it will get done probably next month but leaving the European Union actually leaving for real more than three years after voting to do it. It's GonNa take time and and there are still many many unknowns for the British people on the road ahead. The world's ORLA Berry has been covering this election for us and she joins us from London the day after ORLA. What is this election can result and the massive victory for bars Johnson's conservatives mean for brexit itself it feels a little like for a lot of us here the BREXIT referendum for random result of twenty? Sixteen that sense. The people got and how divided people were in terms of brexit terms of leave and remain and I guess it's a reminder kind from any in the US of how you felt in twenty sixteen when you woke up in that November morning unsold the results of the trump Clinton election. It's a thumping victory for Boris Johnson. Ada Devastating defeat for Jeremy Corbyn and the Labor Party is so what does it mean for Brexit. It means Brexit will happen unless the sky falls. Britain will believe in the European Union at the end of January. Boris Johnson has his majority now. The three Semaine never had he can get his deal through parliament. He did make an effort to sound a note of unity in his speech to the nation at ten Downing Street today and he appealed for both sides to try and put these three and a half years of real polarization real bitterness behind us everyone to find closure and to let the healing begin. Well we'll see if that's possible or a Briton. Leaves on January thirty first leaves the EU does that mean that Then we will stop talking about Brexit. If only Marco you should know better than that as someone said to me. It's like a TV series where it goes on for so long. You can't actually remember who the original characters were January. Thirty first is the end of phase one of BR exist and we move into phase two and this is figuring out future relationship between the UK and the EU. He has until the end of December twenty twenty to reach an agreement with the EU. On what that's supposed to look like he has said he won't ask for another extension. Then again you remember what he said the last time round. He said he would prefer to be dead in a ditch. Then ask for an extension so we will see the ask for an extension next year. We'll still be talking about brexit then Marco for a whole `nother year exactly at the very least European leaders have also been reacting to the news of Johnson's landslide victory. What have they been saying? Well I guess for many of them they never wanted to see. Brexit happened but I think today the soundings from many of them seemed to be just a widespread sigh of relief. The Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutter probably put it most succinctly he. He was asked at a news conference in Brussels whether he felt sadness or relief after British result and he said that during the hill so essentially neither just a factual observation. This can help to settle this. I think everyone will find that positive because we do need to move on otherwise this could carry Arjan for years. anglo-american was also out today. She was asked about the German chancellor and she said we now have a competitor on our doorstep so she's already moved down the road into the future to look at the relationship between both sides but there were some general positive soundings as well from the EU this this is ours lavender line. She's the European Commission president and probably the most upbeat voice from Europe. Today this is not the end of something. This is the beginning of excellent future relations between good neighbors. It is a new chapter in history or Donald Trump tweeted today congratulating. Boris Johnson and saying Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new trade deal after brexit. This deal has a potential to be far bigger and more lucrative live than any deal that could be made with the EU. Is that true ORLA. First of all not so fast because before Britain begins any trade deals with the US it first of all has to sort out its exit from the EU. So at the moment everything is speculation. Also it's important to point out that the issue of the Irish border hasn't hasn't been clarified. Yes and Nancy Pelosi in particular had said there is no chance the. US Congress will approve a trade pact with Britain if brexit closes the Irish border that's it the US ambassador to the UK. Woody Johnson he was out today. He's spinning more positive. Knows on all of this. And he's been in reassuring people in Britain that there's a very bryce and prosperous future ahead you've been in the U. and subject to all this for the last forty years and now oh you can be very creative and look forward to a new world and that he respects. That's one way of putting it and another positive note. By the way Marco the pound. Did they'd go up last night at the announcement of Boris Johnson's victory and the victory of the Conservative Party. So at least there is that the rules ORLA Berry in London Orla till the next time. Maybe we won't talk Brexit for a few weeks Well anyway do you promise no no. I don't thanks very much thanks marco. It's not the end but today could be the beginning of the end of the U. S. China trade war. It started in one thousand nine months ago. And it's been sending tremors through the global economy ever since but now. US and Chinese officials say they've worked out. What an initial deal? Jake parkers with the US. China Business Council in Washington. I asked him for the highlights. What we're hearing so far? Is that the phase one agreement will cover. Ip He protection technology transfer. We'll have some movement on the structural concerns companies facing agriculture imports to the China market covers financial services liberalisation in currency as well as expanding trade. which is some of the numbers that they've talked about today? In terms of new Chinese purchases also note very importantly doesn't include a dispute resolution mechanism that will also ensure that both sides are able to enforce the agreement. I mean there's a big categories kind of stuff. They've been talking about all along. If you had to do the ledger edger. Who would you say are the winners or losers here will look so? Nobody wins in trade worth so I think that both sides are going to win by De Escalating. The conflict in the last several years say that winner is businesses who've been doing trade with China. This should also liberalize some sectors for investment so moving forward lowered putting a base to the deterioration of the bilateral relationship is very positive and what about. US farmers who've been hit pretty hard. We'll have to wait and see what the final details are but it does sound like China is going to be removing some of the impediments to selling certain US products to the China market meat poultry. We're hopeful for ethanol will have greater market access in China and it should increase the sales of US farmers products to China going forward. What details do we still not have about the trade deal like what you most want answers to at this point? I think what we're looking forward to seeing as the text around intellectual property rights protection as well as technology transfer also. The devil is in the detail on many of these issues so we'd also like to see what's in the text of the agreement. We understand from the Chinese press conference today is that the text is agreed between the two parties. But it hasn't undergone legal review or translation. So that'll be key stage for understanding the full details. There's been so much back and forth on trade relations with China under the trump administration You said the devil's in the details. Are you concerned. The deal might not stick well. I think that's why. The enforcement mechanism is so critical. Look we've encouraged the administration to take this step understand. It will be a process where concerns raised bilaterally laterally and then each side they feel the other side is not implemented appropriately will have the opportunity to enforce and bring either tariffs or other penalties to bear. Sounds sounds like you're hopeful. I think that we would applaud the administration for de escalating the conflict and many of the issues that have been raised in phase one therefore than just window dressing. We're GONNA have to see the details in the text but I think we're cautiously optimistic that this is the right way forward. You know a lot of people say trump created this conflict. Inflict in the first place. Are we back to where we started. No I think we're beyond where we started attorney. The financial markets were not open. And indeed they were not planning to be open until twenty twenty two so we have seen acceleration of that for two years. If we're able to tackle many of these longstanding agricultural areas that will open China's market more fully us the US agricultural products. Something we haven't seen in the past any new commitments on currency hopefully dispel the concerns around China being a currency manipulator. The future so so we have to resolve all the issues.
