No which which comes from terms of military intervention. Perhaps your reticence a full picture okay. Everything about it. what what. What's the benefit to us about. The problem going on there was the history of it. Why is the country invaded. What is the cost to us. Potentially what the outcome of the objective can the achieved enough time to was the resource. Walls is a public support for yada yada k. You anticipate school. Let me like a normal cinemascope. Yep yep dippy gopher that were at school night site.

I haven't gone anecdote to sunny anecdotally. Speaking empirical data. But i would argue that those have actually been and seeing conflict or slightly more reticent and actually if you look at the voting record i think it was during the The libyan intervention those had military service with the ones that are actually arguing not to go into libya says debating antonio voting for as well we can pull out some some voting record and argue that that would be quite a few of alcohol would be former resident. They might actually make a decision that sometimes you have to go to war right. Sometimes there is time for that. Ben turns that political dimension. I think that more veterans a formal would be considered and then on a more local level fall more empathetic in terms of the plight of the refugees. Because we've seen poverty we've seen how the worst you can ever see how people live and the impact human cost of conflict. So eyeing actually. It doesn't exactly go valium. Each does it right. But i think we're a lot more caring and a lot more humanitarian when the then resell in our communities and rather than simply saying oh with full refugees and all that i think would be formal considered. I'm sentenced how i feel and and this is just from talking to my network of friends. And thus she to resettling afghans in this country has been far more humanitarian than what. I've seen some more civilian friends and sunny tango facebook for opinion about in communities so i'm ready rocky head that we need to be involved in those decision making processes not just to get the right decisions but when decisions have been made to be able to then act on those particularly local government level based on the life experience that we've gone because guess what he don't need a jesus or eight over degrade politician no qualifications required so therefore life experiences becomes play there and too few of them. Have it no agree with you. Been a bit flippant there when you can get anyone could flip a nuke e talking about trade craft if the more when you talk about military intervention for example and the more people who have military experience while involved make decision the better.

I'm very passionate about the twenty thousand counselors quasi plant for veterans the forces community or whether it be those that are in the limelight and parliament as well. If you don't think they're good enough well stand up and serve again yourself. If you're going to do that game show. i'll give you bleed me dry for information.

We can actually stand up to people if you're going to have a chippy civil servant joint influence you or dare say it's a very a senior officer and then having someone able to stand up to that but no further than seven driven people so so suggestion is that as if in hindsight if they've been a higher proportion exponentially in politics than the outcome may not be what it is because the policy would have been different.

Kabul quite rightly in terms of the. I left in recent times but in other of the country will we're hearing reports in kandahar for example them going door to door with lists where starting from the people who have been connected to messages have been left on the individuals phones. Say we know you've done this. We're coming for you so they. They got more sophisticated in terms of their targeting operation. They been gifted far more data in order to create those target packs essentially. So they're going to be more efficient influenced by die ash and perhaps a more perverse version of taliban. I'm sorry to say i'm very pessimistic. And very Front about about the fate of those individuals and the other thing the other layers this. This is a cultural. Which is about pasha wally. Which took part in a second. But they've by working with the west. They've just essentially extracted from that country. Those that are beginning to be most challenging to them as a power so the academics those that have served in government. Those that have served in the Afghans security forces. There's been several thousand of those people and their children in. You have to look at masud. And his son now stood up. In the punchier region leading northern lions. Getting back together again as the Credible opposition to the taliban. So you think that the the extraction of these individuals has actually removed a problem for the taliban which is a threat to their power. So that mike's bremer the reasons why did relatively smoothly in terms of the taliban and the west corporation and why the actual horrific instant came from isis and not taliban itself. that's one of but a mentioned. The the the cultural interns my session about taliban we have to understand that the taliban our passions but no passions of taliban of course but the majority race within afghanistan the other passion coacher and most famous the the president.

Now there are some key tenants to that which i benefited from for example. The and you probably have as you are on the ground. And you get welcomed. Don't you remember that and these people have absolutely nothing but will give you everything you always get. You get the bruise on the chai city down and traumatic for. Welcome wherever you are.

Molly indicates to me that and they're not going to change and all of sudden actually this revised posture. Molly the nana do that. It's in their dna their passions first before they are muslims before they are afghans before anything else and therefore that tendon of revenge made really fearful about the future because that revenge will if you are a former interpreters say you've extracted yourself from the country but left family members of behind wall unfortunate debt gets passed onto their family so it runs deep and the understandings really important for us to know about the longer-term implications of of yes we can be humanitarian.

"It's central and south asia that we're focusing on Regards to afghanistan so they. It's a lot this warm vote. But i'm sorry to say i understand what governments are having to use a slight different narrative rhetoric in order to engage with the taliban. Because they're trying to be pragmatist. That trying to get more people out again. Ask quite crudely but it's very difficult for us that have served in that country in gave the best years of our lives and enough cases are friends. They're actually lives to to hear that. I get i found that very difficult And the almost political naievty that the taliban had changed don't think is particularly helpful narrative a uk pl c to be hearing if they want to use that in terms of trying to negotiate with the taliban Then fine is there back but for us to hear that anything. That's particularly helpful. I think i think that one of the main reasons that's being done in this. The taliban's changed about tells changed right. But i think that now if the plane especially america specialists you in the uk and the government in they changed. You're saying the change for the better way on they.

Nightingale florence nightingale was born on may twelfth eighteen twenty two an upper class english family with florence and her older sister parthenon dopey are named for the italian cities where they were born growing up in a wealthy family. Florence split her time between the families to english estates and was home schooled by her father. Despite receiving an education the expectation for florence was to marry young and start a family but florence had other ideas when florence was a teenager. She believed she received a message from god calling her to work with the poor and the sick when florence told her parents she wished to pursue a career in nursing. They were not pleased at the time. Nursing was thought of as a lowly service position. not at all what. The nightingale family had intended for their daughter but confident in her calling. Florence would not be deterred and refuse to entertain the idea of marriage eventually. Florence's father gave in and she was permitted to attend nursing school in both germany and paris.

All you know what. I'm just like Film this going to do. And i'm going to give it a go myself and he would fantastically well for us. Obviously unfortunately because of covid and everything that's happened in the last year or so. That has not been as easy. Do i definitely something. We're looking to pick up. I know that alex has been doing some great work with cuban as trope over the co story so definitely the worst person i think really nice to allow individuals. Not just the opportunity to see you. Putting out to them with regards to who these individuals and how great career is and how wonderful the personalities and camaraderie and opportunities that them to direct the ask questions to these individuals. Airlines viewpoint is always be honest. New job is wonderful nine to five. Everybody gets the man. I do in a severe old. I'm sure you guys doing a severo. The is no different out but it's just allowing individuals to ask those questions and get advice that they can make an informed decision and hopefully a brilliant career in the army will follow from it. Absolutely i mean that was a low of livestreams. I guess when like statements to explain as you guys have both touched on merit to being able to show instead of just tile. You know everything that's going on in like you mentioned interactivity is while with. Qna's absolutely massive value. That i mean alex. Have you found something similar with trying to fool out. Yes the woman. I am like tobacco when i'm giving presentations whatever. It's remember the station pot of social media. It's a conversation when you a huge brand is really hard especially in a minute. Government broad is really hard to to build that into strategy. So the way i've done in the past with Example forms that create three to the army now is to make sure you've got time set aside for that engagement and you construct a bit better so an example would be this week. The passing that idea that one. This ecole is actually yami say. We're trying to use hires a vehicle to talk about you. Know what's life like in the army because people already recognized and give people the opportunity to talk to her all social media running instagram q. And a. with without this week so yet. That's the way we like to do. Our engagement property structure it like that Whether it doesn't matter what charlottesville on edge toughest band this week and it does wonders for transparency as well. Yeah exactly and it just opens up. The compensation allows people to speak directly to someone that they might. If you haven't got anyone in the military in your family and you want to talk to someone hopefully this will give you the opportunity to ask them what life is like in the army at all stays questions. I mean i've done it before for the navy and the amount of questions like Like what show is like. Oh this kind of thing. They just didn't have the opportunity to ask anybody say it just opens up people. I love so much of what we've spoken about. So far kind of aligns the branded world as well i think it's very easy to maybe see the ministry and the is i've to take a completely different path on social media but with that in mind of just wondering if there are any brands or organizations or publishers or places it up. That's the two of you take inspiration from working and on these campaigns and strategies in the crepe side of social media. Yes for me. It depends on the campaign say for example Doing something around miniature fitness. I would definitely nick. Too light nike adidas. And see what what they are doing on this channels and brady try to sort of take inspiration from that so so we just depend on which campaign and what would what it is trying to talk about know whether it's for mental health As i say fitness or it could just be trying to explain In a military day blowing things up that kind of stuff with a big guns and stuff so it just depends on what it is trying to but yet looking at the other brands that do well on social talking about these things. It's great in question to you the for me. It really does depend on what covering and absolute wonderful bronze at. I wish that we had the freedom to do this if you should teased out. Which is which adjusts fantastic at the minute. But we do what we can with what we're able to a show say it's all about taking inspiration in adopting a browns that i keep saying on instagram. The i really liked that stuff is actually nine days Although i've never actually had an non dice million it thanks so i think it's very important to look at these other places i love. We have a real problem with resource. As i'm sure every combs team does so when we get in content instagram stories for example. And it's been filmed in a landscape made Something that i've seen a non days days is like a little graphic. Install his tenure feigned side which means we can then repurpose that content. So it's fully like all these different browns gaming inspiration for from whatever they're doing. If you guys for these day at the forefront in that respect and like i say you know not looking at the army and the military is being completely different from the rest of the brandon world because as far as you could save you more or less engage with the same wherever that sir an organization that brands a publisher seven fif- just in audience to hear that firsthand and sir that get that insight into the british divided ministries of. Oh i definitely. We're all competing for the same attention at the end of the day. Even they're like you're willed miles apart from non does it will be the same people.

What do you sort say when it comes to training intensive representing yourself well line. I always try to say the rules that apply. Offline are exactly the same as the ones that apply online. So you shouldn't be doing anything to bring the organization into disrepute if you put yourself out there as an employee of that organization miami way of looking at it. It's really that manual. The manual that existed forever but just apply that to your online life as well and that tends to pretty. Well there are other things you know. If you're all wanting to tweet have a real think about that. Gee would your name out there all the other ways in which we can do it and in terms of best practice we can look at. You know the engineering twitter accounts will the organization rather than as an individual. You need posting as an individual. Of course they the sites that which is everyone's entitled to a life outside the british army. Say that people are encouraged goal on shed at knees as long as they don't as i say bringing the organization into dissipates exposes a mixture isn't that's a balance to be here so being personalized being offensive on social media which is something we always talk about as well exactly if we've got individuals who are tweeting. I always encourage them to talk about passing a life as well as just a that works for the army. You are passing. He's Multi strands to that. Pass nowadays Acog or rugby club or whatever. It might be sometimes tweets about that. Say you'll please or something just to just give yourself about human edge. Otherwise you'll just a vase. On twitter that tweets the same thing all the time. But i think it's important to bring in other aspects people's pass now when that when they're using social media such a good point i guess to expand on that. Then maybe a question for both of you. I want to know how you guys in show that the army social media presence actually reflects everything that you guys do. I know you've That are so many different regiments and like so many different routes that you want to promote share any one time but what methods i guess have you found most useful full representing that as accurately as possible. We've actually boiled our strategy down into five areas that we tried to talk about so by ensuring we've got an even split amongst these things think Generally hitting what we want to talk about so these things like people we want to share the people of the army the contribution that that that giving by joining the army and things they get up to five strands. And we try to make sure that we've got those even covet. What about yourself. Sarah working very stimulative. The strategy to alex british homing but we were taped pending on application. Cutoff dates and intakes. So we were taped between junior entry. Applications regular officer regular soldier reserve office that and reserve so we also talked gate difficult to fill roles and ensure that we have of the aspects of that role rather than generic role in entirety on also show the individuals in the oceans behind those roles. They get a full picture on. We talion accurately with what's going on. The british army channel sits conducive across the board an audience if they're following both channels are able to see the same themes throat and social platforms. I'm interested to get into the specifics about your social media activity and fasting that comes to mind of see. We've mentioned the fact that the army has to be slightly risk us but with that in mind how experimental can you guys be with social platforms in new features in. Can you be reactive. And can you respond trends like some bruns do. Do you have to bear on the side of caution and maybe you're a little bit hinted by that. Say as with any government organization. We have to make sure that what we did is within the operational security on personal security. So if a new platform arisen We'll make sure it's secure. It's at triple. Yee's it in terms of trends popping up. Say let's just say twitter. Hashtag is trent dank. We can't be faded reactive to that to bring in content and post when you're talking about new platforms new technologies than you do. Trek catholic Before jumping in you're listening to the social podcast with sarah. Hi on alex. She'll seifollah we've talked about how the british army social media strategy differs between the the rif on the navy.

"british army" Discussed on Social Minds - Social Media Marketing Answered
"Why is it important for the british army and other militaries to be active on social. Say it's very important for the public. To know will admit it tree is doing and what it's doing for them i think particularly when most of the Abc's i with the navy. We'd of quote at sea blindness. The ministership cells over the horizon. You kind of forget about it. What do you think about all these people. That had deployed separated from their families have signed up to spend that lives in defending the country amongst other things So it's really important that the public our web the things they and they doing so vo view this point as well guess much of that rings true but in terms of the roles that social plays for the british army interesting are how that differs between the army. The navy and the raf is well. Alex is very difficult to how we run. A social media across old at the try-saving Sydney from breaking as a capital employees through recruiting group social media is paramount in order to relieve your -tunities on different careers that are available than a military organization and option that people can take up moving forward through the stories that we promote across social media channels. And how would you both say that these roles have changed over time and by that i mean the role that social media is playing for the army the navy on the rif and what are some examples that perhaps either of you can share to illustrate how that's changed. David time in terms of social coming more important for me. I think when you really drill downs the audiences you've got such a great opportunity now to tote them directly whereas previously before the advent of social media citizen journalism. Lot kind of stuff. You would be reliant on traditional press coming in running a media facility Then the report is going away and spending in the way that they want to spin it whereas now you've got the opportunity to really showcase what as young men and women are doing and really talked her at today's audiences and it's been great so it's not just the general public that we want to say it's an internal audience Example the families of a experience hair with navy. I think it's really important that they've got a direct line to be able to talk to the navy's find out what they loved ones day for my pass no experience. My father was in the navy and what he was actually on a ship sunk in the falklands on h. Miss sheffield and one thousand nine hundred eighty so danai station media and my mother ryan dalziel and she said had that h sheffield has been hit by my saw What's dale and they said. We can confirm. It has been hit by a missile. And if you still worried you can go back in the morning. So rainy in this day and age. That wouldn't fly so it was reading to me. When i worked at that there was a direct access to people through social media and people could join facebook grapes. If loved one was away on a ship there was a special griffin's join on the ship. They could use forums on our websites. Keep updated with all the needs. Not typically if anything did happen go to bed. Then there'd be a way to reach him immediately definitely can obviously see the importance of dot com new. I mean sarah from a recruitment perspective. How would you say that. The role of search has changed in terms of not letting people know what awaits them for career in the army. Oh they are if they wanted from all perspectives. There three types of potential crude. You'll core intenders who have exposure to the military are always going to join regardless of what we do is then are intended to those that have thought about a career in the army but having already made the decision and others that have never ever considered a career in the mutual or any of the armed forces so outside of traditional media. Tv advocates radio out of homes. That have pressed up posters eight lows opportunity to target those audiences and also allows us to get quantitative analysis. One will works those individuals wanting to see in order to make an informed decision about a career in the military. A public for things back to you at this point for both of in alex. I mean i was really interested. Women took in before this call about the army being forward thinking the approach to social media. Because i think from the outside people would assume that it's quite traditional. I mean you experience much of the both of you when implementing social media strategy. And if so what was that so i guess for me. The the main issue is every busy wanting to be represented on social media every regiment excited about this opportunity to speak directly to so for me. The my biggest challenge is organizing. Not into some sort of sense that will make sense from the outside looking in so as an example the organizations within the army have gold Seemingly random numbers and names attached to them say is someone coach for example tunein day. Now new disobedient is going to understand what it is that they actually what they do is You know if someone digs up allowed to go out and defuse that full and they have asd the dogs in that in that team. Always kinda and it's really interesting but is explaining to people. You need to rebrand what you do so that it's understandable for that audience. Really trying to organize all the social media. That's out there. And there are hundreds and hundreds of participation meteo counts rates making them so accessible for the outside world so you don't need to have an understanding Participate in which to understand and find the social media that you're interested in. Wow in terms of you know. Somebody was really closely in the recruitment space. Like you said. The perception of what i suppose audiences would think would be a communication from the army or military's and what is i mean. It's actually something you take in terms of consideration. Naturally i guess if you've got jen's eddo millennial audience Needs to be speaking that language. Yes i mean exactly. As alex site there are so many. Different branches regiments coz if the army and civilian won't have any clue with a french nation. We tend to find that. Sometimes they don't even know the differentiation between a soldier and an officer career let alone the granular detail of individual units. On showing them the detailer. Why off chain career with meow. Mian it being a way of life and the camaraderie and the opportunities and the adventurous training that you can get as a positive Simply isn't available as a civilian mean eight years into this role. I remember never have been but if i knew then will i knew now on definitely considered it as a career option because i mean between free gym membership in the healthcare and the accommodation and the travel and the way you can see the world hang field degree. I have been all over it but unfortunately from me down to about the opportunities. I mean i'm interested to note perhaps especially from style phonics because in our long you've been in the industry when you starting to implement a social media strategy in figuring out what best full the army will experience you have with pushback internally. Any won't.

What the monarchy means to the English
"Early this week a retired british army officer explained that he and his wife weren't getting onto with a few members of his immediate family. I had three conversations with my grandmother and two conversations with my father before. Still taking my calls of listeners will already have spotted what we're doing here which is to say that yes. This is going to be one of those things. Where a high falutin media route rises piously above commenting directly on the actual thing and instead loftily pontificates over stapled fingers about what it all means before we get to superciliously anthropological about be teeth demolishing and garment rending currently besetting britain. This does seem a good time to recognize a truth. Rarely acknowledged by the media. Which is that. most people. Don't really care about most things. Doubtless they are many millions of subjects of the septa dials. Who responded to for winfrey's interview with the duke and duchess of sussex in these sign and proper manner i e by muttering and proceeding with a day. Doing our job. But we're both just trying to hold on to that quite and we'll just now eat a nice big slice of cake which we are also having when a substantial lure at least voluble demographic of a given country freaks all the way out about a given thing it assuredly mean something if often nothing good. I'm angry to the point of bowling over today. I'm sickened alive. Just sat to watch out. Which and yes. I will be arriving shortly hanging there. We should also be clear regarding which specific given country. We're talking about because this isn't really about the united kingdom or even great britain there is pretty solidly entrenched resentment of the royal family in wales and scotland. Then they may take and obviously outright kathy in portions of northern ireland. What we are witnessing is a certain segment of england having a nervous breakdown about history identity and tradition which may remind you of a recent referendum and several ensuing years of ethically political melodrama. The couldn't reason a mess manet to about owned independence behind it fast. Staff inc post interview polling does indeed suggest a congruence between views on this latest royal related hullaballoo and views on brexit. Those who voted leave are overwhelmingly unsympathetic to the duke and duchess those who voted remain more understanding but also much likely still to be undecided or interested also as with brexit views sorted by age break. Absolutely as you'd expect where one strata of england is concerned it's hard not to see a certain displaced anxiety in play here at some point in the next few years. Different face will begin appearing on british stamps and banknotes. It is difficult to overstate how strange this will be queen. Elizabeth second has reigned for sixty nine years a stalled and reliable fixture during a period in which her country and its role in the world has otherwise changed beyond recognition as may be gauged by among many other metrics comparing her first prime minister winston churchill on the beaches with the rather less figure likely to be her lost. We'd have had the consolation of watching.

But they sort of had a familial relationship with Heston. So these were paid mercenaries and that was very common in the 18th century European warfare to have paid armies.

A Walking Tour of Dublin, Ireland
"Start. Today's all Irish. Our with tips for a walking tour of Dublin with nearly two million people in Greater Dublin. Ireland's capital is by far its biggest city and it thrives with Arts Entertainment Food and fun just taking a walk through Ireland's capital. You can see and experience so much of its charm. That can know where to look and if you know where to walk. It's even better. That's why we've invited to Great Irish guides. Joe Darcy and Karen O'hare to join us in our studios for a guided stroll through Dublin. Joe and Karen thanks for being with us. Our pleasure great to be here so if you're going to take somebody on a walk through. Dublin where we just start. I think I'd probably start up. Stephen's Green which is at the south. End of Grafton Street is a pedestrianised shopping street and Stevens. Green is a beautiful manicured Eighteenth Century Park. It reminds me of when you get off the platform and suddenly. You're at hogwarts step out of the middle of this busy packed city into a beautiful manicured park actually reminds me of London. Very much so probably. That's because it was designed in a time when Dublin was actually the second city in the British Empire. Oh without question. In everything. From the the wrought iron fencing around the entire park to the style of landscape architecture inside the park is very very limited those parts in London and Joe when we think of Saint Stephen's Green. Today it has some connections with Ireland's difficult fight for independence Jordan. The nineteen sixteen religion on Easter Monday called eastern evasion and there was one. Contingent of artists rebelled swear in command of Stevens granddaughter. Job was to mind. Stephen Greene barricaded streets on prevent British reinforcements from getting into the city centre and amazingly their only experience of warfare. Because he's not. Soldiers was watching the pathway news from World War One and where everybody was digging trenches all over Belgium France so they dug trenches in Stephen's Green. Hold out but of course British army caught up to four storey buildings all around the Gresham hotel. They had a clear line of fire. Is like they're digging their own tombs. Yeah Yeah So. They retreated from their interface called the Royal College of Surgeons. Which is just when you come out with Stephen Screen through that gate around. He'll after all colleges charges and you can still see bullet marks into whole memorial to mention. Yeah Yeah Yeah let host reminded of the the blood that was last is Ireland one. It's independent that was no easy feat the more understanding of history you bring your visit to. Dublin the more. You'll enjoy your sightseeing today when I go to Saint Stephen Screen it's Of course you've got the history but it's just a festival of of youth and families in life. People are feeding the ducks in the pond. There's a little theater there. And it's and it's the kickoff point for Grafton Street Karen mentioned Grafton Street Joe when he walked down Grafton Street What are you gonNA find? You're gonNA find a multitude of small shops as well as the big retail shops. Actually strangely enough when you come down from Stevens Gray and one of the first big shops you say you left US Disneyland. So there's a store you know. This is the High Rent Street and you have the high rents treated drives out the local businesses and it brings in the what. Are you gonNA see Karen when you walk down Grafton Street well I think the first thing that you notice is the street is seething with life there's wall to wall people coming and going in either direction and you know living in Dublin. You're always if you live there you're gonna run into someone you know in that street. You know when you walk down it you don't see any churches right on the street but hiding a little bit off. The way is a Catholic Church. Why would a Catholic Church be hiding off the main street in Dublin? Well Saint Theresa's Church right off. Grafton Street was One of the first places that it was allowable. I believe for Roman Catholics to openly worship after the period of time in the eighteenth century known as the penal laws when open practice of Roman Catholicism was officially outlawed by British rulers in Ireland so that churches write-offs in Stephen's Green and it's very much an oasis of tranquility in the city as it has been since the eighteenth century Saint Teresa's. It's a beautiful church to depend to end. It is interesting to think that in Ireland. Dublin was sort of London's second city and it was very not Catholic but when Catholicism was allowed you could worship as Catholics in Dublin but keep a low profile exactly so these great churches are tucked away in the back streets although they were allowed to openly practice. That wasn't really opened. That was in inverted commas. The church still had to be kinda hidden away. They weren't allowed to build churches on a main street. That's why it's down outside. So it Joe at the bottom of Grafton street you come to a very important College Beautiful College Trinity College and originally for the elites for the Protestant kids but of course today Everybody's welcome as it traveled. How do enjoy Trinity College? Well the best way to visit is to go into the front main entrance on an area called college dot Grafton Street just continue on straight over to your right hand side and you come into a beautiful Georgian Square. A huge amount of Dobbin was rebuilt. George an and that's like neoclassical screams. British Empire Eighteenth Century he and George W was rebuilt in the eighteenth century in Georgia. So we're one of the best Georgian cities. In Britain colleges SORTA like the elite colleagues for Ireland. Even go to college was founded in one thousand nine hundred hundred nothing left of the original college. It was almost totally rebuilt starting in Sixteen Ninety S and then Roy Eighteenth Century Karen my favorite thing when I step through that Grand. Entrance of Trinity is a little table where our students offering tours? Yeah that's right and I used to live right across from that table when I was in college and Trinity. Right in front square and there are students known as scholars of the college who've passed a competitive examination to have free tuition at the college and they give tours of front square dressed in the academic gowns. That were still common among students until recently and they are really eloquent. Fun-loving students giving you a candid. Look at student life. It's very inexpensive. It's a great way to get a sense of Trinity College absolutely in a great way to get a sense of the tradition of wit in Dublin. It goes back to one of the most famous Students at Trinity Oscar Wilde are guides to Dublin travel with Rick Steves are irish-american Cure. No half he attended. Kennedy College is an expert on the Ellen pipes which he performs with the company trio opened the door for three Joe. Darcy provides custom walking tours of Dublin and was recently on the board of historic Sweeney's pharmacy. Where James Joyce readings are given throughout the week when we go to Trinity College? Of course you've got to go to the library and see the book of Kells and so one of the most important medieval art treasures in Western civilization when you leave trinity when I was really struck by is a bank that used to be the parliament step in there and you get a little dose of British rule of Ireland Joe. Tickets into that the most important building built in Dobbin Jordan rebuilding eighteenth century was a new bike camera. Houses apartment one of the first purpose built house the parliament certainly in Europe. If not the world took about forty years to complete S- between seventeen forty. Seven hundred eighty and housed. Two Chambers House will come in the House of Lords very much along the the British can step into one of those houses to this day. It's open during banking errors free and and you really got sense of that little after the act of union and the first of January eighteen hundred one we became part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the Bank of Ireland. Arden's forced commercial bank. They took over the building paid for the House of Commons. Hot To be put out of use never to be used as a place of assembly again but they said nothing about the House of Lords so the Bank of art and has maintained. And it's a beautiful room. It's mostly open Jordan banking hours occasionally there's functions and there you'll see a sign outside that it's either open or closed. I stumbled into it just this last year. I never knew about it and it was great
VW Beetle Part III: From Hitler to Hippies
"Back to the epic conclusion of our three part series on the Volkswagen Beetle. It's been dark road the F. Are you guys a lot of really messed up stuff? But there's a lot of peace in love in the future. Yea here that this episode is about peace and love so I'm looking forward to. We're going to get there. Hey guys welcome to the. Pass Gas podcast. You like passed gas. Please help us grow by giving us a good rating and a nicer view on the podcast platform of your choice to really help us out. I really appreciate it. Thank you all right now for the show. When we last left off the Volkswagen Wolfsburg factory originally meant to Make Carson. People WAS BUILDING WEAPONS OF WAR INSTEAD. Wolfsburg was targeted by the allies and nearly destroyed but the war ended. Hitler was dead. It was time yeah. It was time for the Volkswagen to live up to. Its name is name was the people's car Ooh bye-bye now that the war was over. Germany was faced with the massive task of reconstructing a shattered country including resupplying. The transportation needs for the people after the war. Germany was divided into multiple zones. The British American Soviet and French sectors Wolfsburg was situated within the British sector and the factory was still under the British pocket book in the years after the war it was also under constant threat of being shut down but once the British and American sectors merged it became apparent that British Army Engineer Major Ivan. Hirst would be able to secure the necessary funding to keep the factory afloat. The country would once again be allowed to participate within the global free market in nineteen forty seven. Obviously these policies had a direct impact on the Volkswagen factory British officials representing the VW plant had continued to push further permission to export during all of these changes every single one of their requests export though had been denied but now the Germany was allowed to enter the market the VW plant was finally viewed as a way to ease the British expenses and in March of nineteen forty seven. The factory quotas were raised. The People's car would be allowed to be exported outside of Germany but only to the Netherlands Belgium and France. The first official export of the car occurred in August that same year? A massive total of five cars were exported and the process was a difficult. One selling quote. Hitler'S CARS TO COUNTRY. Hitler try to Concord. Seemed kind of absurd but it wasn't Hitler's car anymore. So anything can happen. I think they should should stop calling Hitler's car if they want to sell it. Probably not the best marketing hooked. This is a great car. This was Hitler's car. It was obvious that British Army Engineer Major Ivan. Hirst couldn't run the plant forever. He was a military man and while he loved his position at the plant he had a larger job that took priority but each time they tried to take her out of the factory chaos ensued. He ran a tight ship soon enough. The search for a replacement began but for the volatile plant to return to German hands. It needed someone who had expertise when it came to running a major factory. Former Opel head Heinrich Nordhoff. Remember him from the last episode mentioned him he had been barred from working in the American business sector since he had been given an award from the Nazis. A FEW YEARS PRIOR ON K. Not a good look opal was controlled by GM. And Mr Nordhoff was forced out of his job. Due to America's quote no nonsense policy on Nazi involvement after the war you know other than hiring Nazi scientists to develop bombs and stuff. Yeah and like the entire space program. Yeah let's not talk about. Yeah that's true Operation Paper Clip. Look it up. When it came to looking for a factory manager Nordhoff. He might sense. He was experienced in managing factories and since the VW plant was under British control. He was actually allowed to work there on January. First of nineteen forty eight Heinrich took up position as managing director of the Volkswagen. Plant by recommendation of major hearst upon his arrival to Wolfsburg Nordhoff noted that the factory still looked exactly like it did during the war. It was basically a pile of ruins that could somehow produce cars so he knew he had a lot of work to do. So we got the work while he was meant to report to hearst with each action the roles were kind of reversed. It was obvious that Nord off was the expert and no one complained. Once you took control. The first thing Nordhoff did was replaced all the English signs back to German ones. Oh that's the bathroom is been peeing in jars from meanwhile nineteen forty. Seven was a terrible year for Ferdinand. Porsche he had been moved from his original prison to the Dank Dungeons in dijon into John. That sounds like your APP album named Dude Dank dungeons dungeons. That's pretty good good anyway remember. He had been arrested by the French. Police For colluding with Hitler Hitler. Yeah that guy so at this prison in the in Dijon. They were not even given beds all around him other men involved in the war. We're being sentenced to death in the Nuremberg trials. So at least Porsche was better off than that. After twenty two months Porsche and his family were released from the French prisons and declared not guilty of their crimes as the French government only tried him regarding the forced labor of French prisoners The Porsche Corporation to this day still denies the use of forced labour in their factory. At the time just it's better just to come clean about it. You know. Yeah Yeah I mean there's no way right. There's no way that they didn't. I don't know the rest of his record was sort of six months after his arrival to the Volkswagen Factory Heinrich Nordhoff was still sleeping on the factory. Floor on a flimsy. Kat issues plagued the factory especially the lack of housing but most importantly there wasn't really a local market for the cars. Germany was still dirt poor. And those who have the money to buy car tended to steer clear of the word. Volkswagen makes sense also. The factory was amazingly inefficient. It took workers in a reported three hundred hours to build a single car so nordhoff had to reshuffle the factory line in order to imitate the successful style of the lines in Detroit. Normally that Nordhoff expertise allowed him to play with the budget. A little bit. Nineteen forty-nine was the first year the factory was given a firm quota of forty thousand cars and nord-ost reshuffling allowed the cars to be produced over two hundred dollars under budget nor off also rebuilt the factory. He figured out that having bombed out walls and ceilings. Kinda hurt company around. Yeah I remember when our office got blown up. That was really tough to come to work every day. Yes like where do I plug my charger in? Yeah there's no wall. Where am I snack? All my snacks. So Heinrich had the place tidied up a little bit. Most importantly he completely changed the entire decision making power structure of the factory. Using a general manager who controlled multiple departments head on and so on while that's super commonplace. Now this was revolutionary at this time in German history but ultimately the company was still controlled by the British government and while they remain about as far out of the picture as they could heinrich still had to answer to them in the end.

"So they will no longer represent the queen will no longer be working members of the royal family nor will they use that titles of Royal Highness that was a statement from Queen Elizabeth the second late on Saturday confirming the future status of her grandson prince Harry and his wife Meghan the couple have been embroiled in a few Rory over their future role since announcing a desire to step back as senior members of the British royal family correspondent anymore is here with me in the studio this sounds like a clean break yeah that's fine I mean how do you make and says the Tate said they want to step back from wrote you tease the still in fact seems a bit more radical than that as you say yeah it's more of a a clean break so the details were announced in that statement from the queen so they will lose that HRH titles his Royal Highness her wrong hi this they will become simply the juke of Sussex she will be the Duchess they won't carry out any royal duties they want to get any money from royal sounds okay patronage of organizations and charities that they'd like will continue of course he will lose or his official military titles very difficult for a man who did serve in the British Army Kohls are the couple will route paid two point four million pounds from public funds that was spent on renovating from small cottage where they leave a twin to council in the future they will continue to live there when they're in the U. K. but they will pay which older commercial rent for that that statement from the queen very personal she talked about family she said Harry make and and Archie the sun will always be much less love to members of my family as she went on to say I recognize the challenges and intense scrutiny they have faced and she said I'm particularly proud of how may can I said quickly become one of the family Harry is still in line to the throne amidst all this is Andy he is yes he's still in line to the throne though he says he he wants with Megan to go off and start a new life they talked about speaking that time between Canada and the U. K. E. we haven't got much detail on what's that new life will be what form it will take it was very brief statement on their website which said they will provide you information on the rolls and well could you can touches of Sussex in June course Macon is on Vancouver Island at the moment and we understand that Harry will probably join her in June course later on this week what a future security costs because clearly that's one of the areas that isn't quite clarified at this point indeed one of the issues that hasn't been clarified in fact I told were there was no mention all of all of that age will be a great and continuing expense as former oils as internationally known people they will need security wherever they are in the world there was no information in a statement about who will pay for that and whether it will be the British taxpayer or whether the Canadian taxpayer may take him a policy that so it's one of those issues that is unclear at the moment and the hope certain within Buckingham Palace presumably is that this draws a line to an extent under what has been quite a difficult episode absolutely a very difficult time full the queen for the royal family coming so soon offer the problems with the prince Andrew his association with the billionaire financier Epstein and that dissolves to seem to he did with the BBC television so there is this incident this difficulty coming so soon after that one but the queen wanted it to be resolved as soon as possible it has been within about a week after they announce they want to step back these arrangements will start in the spring and we're told that it will be reviewed after years of the queen officially hopes this will be the start of a new chapter they will be able to do what they wish to start a new life in the royal family will be able to carry on as before Andy thank you very much

J.F.C. Fuller: Military Thinker
"August Grist nineteen sixteen the Western Front. In the first World War the opposing armies had dug into entrenched positions stretching five five hundred miles across France and Belgium from the mountains to the sea barbed wire and machine. Guns meant that it was all but impossible for either side side to advance the Noble Cavalry long the most celebrated force in the army utterly useless. It was a murderous stalemate stalemate but a few miles behind the allied lines. Hundreds of people both civilians and British and French army officers. That brought picnics. Emma waiting patiently for a demonstration of Agra marketable invention it was pleasantly warm day and a quiet quiet spot if you tuned out the artillery of the Psalm battlefield thundering away beyond the horizon then. Another noise began to cut across that distant rumbling the Chug of a powerful engine the relentless metallic clattering of Caterpillar tracks carrying twenty eight tons of cannon armour-plating to walking pace. Everyone was talking and chatting when slowly came into sight. The first I tank I ever saw not a monster but very graceful machine with beautiful lines lozenge shaped but with too clumsy looking wheels behind it. That's major J F C fuller. He's the central figure in our story. He's thirty seven a small roll man with a neatly trimmed moustache. His hairline is retreating over his crown and beginning to March down the back of his hand. He could pass for a Buckler in a costume. Assume drama but beneath the surface of J F C fuller is an inner radicalism. Not long ago he'd been friends with the notorious. Torius occultist Alister Crowley Crowley called himself. A wizard one newspaper called him. The wickedest man in the world cavorting with self proclaimed walks is not the typical social pastime of a British army officer. But as we'll see that isn't even the strangest first thing about the life and the fate of J F C Fuller Fuller sees instantly this new machine. The tank is the solution to the basic tactical problem of the war of how to cross MoD and trenches and barbed wire against Storm of bullets. Nothing else has worked not even the novel atrocity of poison gas. But the tank will do the job. Bob And J. F C fuller concede that with absolute clarity. The tank is the unknown x in the equation of victory. All that is necessary is to get the people to see the problem but getting other people to see the problem was well. Perhaps that was the problem problem.

Troubling: a death in Northern Ireland
"South This economists podcast is sponsored by linked in jobs. Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economists radio. I'm your host Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. A minority of South African people have steadied formal jobs too many, including a large fraction of the country's youth do piecemeal work or are unemployed altogether. We look at the efforts to bring the young into the workforce. And there's a lot of talk about public figures particularly candidates in America's upcoming presidential race speaking, multiple languages, what's with these polyglot politicians. But I. A funeral will be held today for a young journalist from Northern Ireland who was shot dead last week all for the loss of lira. Our hopes and dreams all of her Mazen potential with snuff type a single Barrick. Lira Mckee had been reporting on violent unrest in the city of Londonderry. We believe this to be a terrorist act. We believe it's been carved violent Republicans yesterday. A group called the new IRA took responsibility for the killing it even apologized. The incident was shocking reminder of the fragility of peace since the end of the Northern Ireland conflict known as the troubles. This was an attack on everybody in northern. It. Doesn't matter if you're Catholic or Protestant. British are this is an attack on democracy? The troubles began in the nineteen sixties and painted mostly Catholic Irish nationalists against the British army Northern Ireland police and mostly Protestant loyalists. For three decades violence and terror was a part of everyday life, the turmoil claimed more than three thousand five hundred lives, but in nineteen ninety eight the Good Friday agreement largely brought an end to the conflict today is about the promise of a bright future. Dave, and behold, a line can be drawn bloody past some low level violence continued, but this latest killing has fear and outrage. The funeral today of Larry Mckee is going to feel in many ways. Like, we'll most states occasion. Tom Wainwright is the economists Britain editor where expecting to see the Irish T show that the prime minister will say the president of island the secretary of the UK as well as low two local politicians from Nova Nyland, of course. And so it's going to feel like a big deal, and it really is a big deal in Northern Ireland. This kind of killing of innocent civilian in what seems to have been a terrorist attack something that really has shocked people. It's by no means the gnome since the peace agreements of twenty one years ago. This kind of thing is much less common than it used to be in people here really really shocked by what happened last week, and Tom what can you tell me about the group responsible for misbehaves death, new IRA and its relation to the other groups with IRA in the name, it's it's a bit confusing. Picture it is it really isn't. I think to understand that you've got to go back to the Good Friday agreement of nineteen ninety eight and. What happened? There was that the IRA and most Republicans agreed to end any kind of struggle and take their fight for the United Ireland to the debating chamber of the streets. But at the time there was some Republicans who disagreed with that to this represented, a capitulation, and these guys who are now widely noted dissident Republicans have continued that struggle on a fairly low level. But nonetheless, they are security worry five the security agency raised the threat in Northern Ireland is severe they have continued trying to police officers, for instance. And so why do the new IRA kill Lear mckie? Well, she seems to have been killed by stray bullets. She was watching a riot taking place in the city of Londonderry Derry as it's known to Republicans, and she was watching from next to police come and she was shot in the head and later died, and this riot was kicked off really after police had been raiding homes in the area shortly beforehand seems that they were concerned on the. The Easter rising some local Republicans might be out to coast trouble. And seems that some cycle dissident Republicans is this as a excuse to get that people on the streets and co some trouble and the new IRA said it was an accident and apologized there's some significance to that. Right. There. Is yet seems that they really feel as if that on the back photo of this that agreed which has said, the it's propensity is violence to said that the Republican coups, but they seem to be well aware that locally these kinds of acts of violence in which older NRI innocent civilians killed or injured go down extremely badly and really risk setting that goes back, and we've seen evidence of this already in dairy, the headquarters of a local political party, which is supported by the IRA people being smearing red painted handprints on their offices a form of protest and lately various Republican murals have been graffiti as well by people saying things like not in my name. Name. And so they think realize that this could set them back in a big way. Police also reporting that moving one hundred people have sent them with information about the killing and in a city like Derry, that's really unusual. This is not a place where people have historically been happy to talk to the police about Republican activists. So we could be seeing Quanta change. So do you get the sense from all that then that there is just simply less tolerance for the kind of violence that was so common during the troubles. I think that's right. I think since the Good Friday agreement which was almost exactly twenty one years ago. Many people in Northern Ireland of come to see the peace that's being achieved is enormously valuable, and the idea of going back to that is something that really worries a lot of people. And I think most observers thing that the chances of returns to scale violence, very slim, but any sign that violences on the rise is obviously a worry, especially at the moment with Brexit going on which is causing all kinds of problems for Northern Ireland. We've also got the problem of the Northern Ireland assembly having been suspended now for more than two years. So there's a feeling Northern Ireland is inevitable position so events like this do concern a lot of people that people worry that things are being destabilized that, but you mentioned Briggs in in passing there. Do you think that all the negotiations and the degree to which Northern Ireland has been such a lynchpin of the negotiations has sort of reignited tensions? It's certainly reignited tensions. Yeah. We haven't yet seen a big kicking off of large scale violence or anything like that. But tensions absolutely have been heightened. And it's not surprising because the peace deal made back in nineteen ninety eight really hinged in many ways on the UK an island shed membership of the European Union that help to enable these countries to have a border, which is not just open. But invisible, I mean, if you go there and drive between Northern Ireland and their public of island, you can do so without even realizing that you've crossed the Boda, and of course, membership of the EU means the two countries of members of the single. Markets, and so no customs checks needed and since nineteen ninety eight people know of Nyland being able to choose whether they take Irish or UK possibles in many ways, they've been allowed to feel as if they are either Irish Oprah show oath if they want and so the UK now leaving the European Union really will subject that to strain. And it's clearly pulling the UK an island upon a way that nobody on typically to twenty one years ago and many people particularly in the Republican community. Most of them voted to remain, by the way, think that Britain is in some way reneging on agreements that were made or hinted that twenty years ago, so it is a time of heightened tension. Yes. Tom. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you.
