Jesse Watters: Hate Speech Is Just Stuff the Left Disagrees With

"Waters over Fox News channel had a really, really great monologue about this whole Elon Musk Twitter episode. Check this out. Hate speech is this stuff that liberals disagree with. Let's take a look at who they censored and why. Remember, Charlie Kirk, and the Babylon B, they got suspended for calling a biological man a man. Then Tucker Carlson was suspended after coming to their defense. They suspended a Chinese virologist who claimed COVID was made in the Wuhan lab. Doctor Robert Malone and mRNA scientist was permanently nuked for questioning the vaccine. And daily wire, cofounder Jeremy boring made a joke about Brussels sprouts and was knocked off. Libs of TikTok. Remember those guys? They were suspended for a hateful conduct. After bringing attention to videos made by these radical loons, all lives of TikTok was was a mirror. They just held up a mirror to libs of TikTok

Rep. Jim Jordan Says Biden’s ‘War-Triggering Language’ Is a Liability

"Congressman Jordan had this to say about I can't even call him president. The man who is the chief executive of America and his performance in Brussels and in Warsaw cut 9. I think you can say that here's a present potentially having more war triggering type language than probably any president in American history. So we need to be careful. We need to be precise and things we say, particularly the commander in chief of our country. I thought it was interesting that I think Alex vindman said that this was an historical speech. So historically The White House had to go out and correct the record after he gave it. I mean, you step back and think about it, Lawrence, we went from Ronald Reagan, tear down these walls and then to the toughness of Trump to now the president of the United States, President Biden given speeches where he basically says, I don't know what I'm doing. So that's very dangerous. Let's hope it stops. And let's hope that there's an end to this as soon as possible.

"Hello. Hilbert. Can you follow up on something you mentioned at the beginning of your interview? And that is, could you talk a little bit about the history of the mannequin to his statue? We were in Brussels a few years ago and just we're not aware of it until some locals pointed out and we went and saw and just cracked up at it. So now this is a tiny little statue of a little boy. What does it bronze or something? It's made of bronze. And he's peeing. He's peeing right there in the corner and people you can see the crowds of tourists gathering on to look at him and I think it's a tradition where different groups in the city will actually submit a costume for him to wear so you can have the mannequin sumo wrestler pissing. You can have the mannequin Detroit policeman pissing. You can have the mannequin, whatever. What's the story about this thing? Well, I have the pleasure to communicate that I'm a member of the historical order of mannequins. So I'm part of the procession that dresses undresses him. There's a little ceremony accompanied with giving him costumes, but most of the time you'll see him undressed. Little boy, he's not very large, and he's urinating. That's what he does. And there are about 6 different legends that explain his presence there. None of the legends are corroborated with the historical record. So, so what's your favorite legend and then what's the truth? Well, one of the legends is very simply that little boy, son of a noble man, got lost in the noble man, vowed that if he found his son, he'd be so thankful that he'd make a statue of his son right the way he saw him when he found him, and he was there relieving himself and so that's a statue they made. Now, of course, there's no record of this. In fact, the history of mind confiscates lost in the din of time..

Putin's Real Game Plan With Ilan Berman

"Me ask you this. Did you expect this to be here so quickly 14 months into this administration with knowing what you know about Putin? Well, it's interesting because Putin the grievance that Putin is acting on now is a long-standing one. Yes. I mean, what I think most people don't quite understand is Putin as viewed from Moscow sees the end of the Cold War, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the post Cold War position of Russia as inherently unfair. Putin sees Russia as a great power. So he's a social justice warrior because it's unfair. SJW. SJW out there. Not quite that good. But he thinks that what you're looking at is a situation where the zone of freedom, zone of European freedom is expanding. The zone of Russian influence is contracting. The way I like to explain it is he feels like he's in a box and he's constantly pushing against the corners of the box to see whether there's give, whether there's an ability to change Russian foreign policy to advantage Moscow and disadvantage Brussels and London and everybody else. I love the way you phrase that. The box of European freedom is expanding, which for him is a bad thing because let's be clear he may sell this vision to the American to the Russian people that NATO's coming and they're going to invade and they've already encircled us, but the real threat to him is the expansion of the concept of freedom and democracy into Russia. Is it not England? No, no, that's precisely right. And that's why I think it's actually it's necessary to sort of drill down a little bit and explain what he believes, because our Friends, when they talk about Russia, they look at Vladimir Putin, he's an unreconstructed KGB agent. He rose up through the ranks to positions of leadership in the Soviet Union. And so they immediately default to the idea that, oh, he just wants to recreate the Soviet Union. But if you look at what he's been saying lately, that's actually not the case. It's bigger. It's bigger and it's older. Because what he's talking about, what he talked about in his February 21st speech before the invasion, what he talked about in his February 24th speech right after the invasion, he's talking about the fact that the Soviet Union made a lot of mistakes. And they made

To get its energy for shutting down their nuclear power plants and then relying on us to defend them from Russia. It's very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia where you're supposed to be guarding against Russia and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia. So we're protecting Germany. We're protecting France. We're protecting all of these countries. And then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal with Russia where they're paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia.

"It was too expensive to ship anything over there privately. It's just a. I think one box of books would cost maybe seventy euros to ship in. It's small boxes so it would. Just it's just not affordable the way around was that one hundred fifty books were directly shipped from the printer to iceland for free basically and then when everything was sold out there was actually so loud in a week i tried to find sponsors to ship more and after a lot of calling writing and so on iceland air actually agreed to ship a second batch for free so i had to drive to the cargo airport here in belgium. Bring the boxes there and they just put it on one of their planes and flew them over there for free so you have to be resourceful and try to find ways to somehow get it done. I mean that's the part that a lot of people don't think about they think about producing anything about the graphic design about the content.

Getting ready to detonate suicide vests which were packed with nail guns. They were inside the departure not far away from where we stand. I quickly checked in and as they were handing me my boarding pass. That's when the first bomb went off about fifty yards behind the building. Fabric of the building shook it rocked. Dust starts coming out everywhere and we just sort of hunkered down. I mean we knew it was in the woods on the check in the side. What we didn't know was that one of the terrorists ibrahim el bahari had just detonates. It his ball. And i just saw the ceiling crashing down just at the -struction. My intuition said they were going to come in. And start shooting up or there'd be another bomb where everybody was rushing to so i rushed towards the security check in counters i was zigzagging people but a second terrorist was going towards the main exit. I passed him and he detonated the bomb annual not and we still crouched down this stage on the fall side of the tissue. The second terrorist. This is not gene. Mcreilly also designates his device but at the opposite end of the whole from the first explosion. We kind of knew what was happening. But of course point we'd no idea he extensive become j-. I don't know when i came around the ring in my ears was just unbearable. And i saw just help around me. Just complete hell that people and a lot of dust a lot of debris there was kind of bones and flesh just kind of sticking out of my hip. My legs weren't responding. And i could see like holes into my legs in both legs. I started like trying to slide myself away from just this horror. That was around off the second explosion. We stayed where we were sort of crouching down trying to assess what was going on in process what was going on. I spoke to my wife and reassured her that we read k. And told him to keep the kids away from the tv. Until i talk to. i'm safe. Samir safe ariel safe and this is bringing the breaking news. We're hearing reports of an explosion at brussels airport. Our phones through to the news desk in london. Just tell us what's happening. What those officials are saying to you where we'll be moved out. I said look. I have no doubt in my mind. Airport has just come under a terrorist attack. We can't confirm that hasn't been confirmed by the authorities and of course we started recording and gathering pages where we were at brussels apple terminal after what sounded like explosions just before. We were doing what we hate to do. Journalists documents and we can see you now on the phone. It's just just tell us we hunters. Many people were dash fat on the other side of the security that we don't through. My biggest fear was the that was the end of the attack. They were evacuating dead people. You saw people under blankets. And i started being dragged and i'm hanging onto my left leg because i thought it was detached so i didn't want to leave my left leg behind me in the distance i saw a baggage cart. Someone brought that over to me. And somehow i managed to lift myself up on. The cart is getting harder to breathe. You're losing so much blood you're like man. I'm getting somewhere. But i'm going to run out of time so it's now about hall for an hour off to the explosions and at this point we didn't know it was also a third moment where we'll be moved out to the admiral now. Too much to the phone doing live broadcasts on the idea. I still alive broadcaster addition to using the other phone. So i could hear question presents. Just tell us what's happening those officials as saying to you. They're all phase maybe other attackers. I think you're that time certainly have been one of the things i was thinking. Maybe actually looking into something far worse now as we can see those passengers having to leave that terminal building along witty talks about the security. The at that point. I'm on the cart and they pushed to the back of the airport. And i was kind of furious. Cow go to the front the yelling at me saying no. There's a third bomb as i'm dying. I'm bleeding look and there's already huge puddles of blood on the cart. I asked for some water and so the the young airport worker comes back with the cup of water. And i drink it and then i look at him and say look. Just push me to the front of the airport. I can't stay if i stayed here. I'm going to die. I can see him completely. Tormented by the idea of this guy like what should i do because everyone say no. No you gotta stay. Say look trust me. Don't work and so he just pushes me up to the front near the elevators and where we can't go any further because of degree he just leaves me. They're just pictures. Though coming into us from the scene at the metro station in brussels where after ten people potentially have died this as male back metro station in the eu kosher explosion happened the bom win so from.

"But that sounds like one of those versions of it, which would work if we didn't have to start from her because the mistake in the same way that he said them the British government's mistake was the trigger article fifty two soon it is possible that we are trapped because Europeans mistake was to put into the withdrawal agreement. The thing that actually now needs to be negotiated away. It is quite possible that which for that. And then we will have to have overly general trapped still less convinced by not wish the trapped. I think by the nature of article fifty of this cutoff date in the sense that the treaty itself has been treaty itself. Says that these negotiate. Nations go on for two years. And then either withdraw happens. Withdrawal agreement or would you all happens? Without? The one thing I think both of us feel this is unlikely to be resolved on the food teens, right? You. So then that takes us to within less than six weeks of them point. And is a test of nerve Polly into cliche Naba is test of nerve. It's not really who blinks first. But it's kind of within these options questioned Wenders when we get onto choices. And we're not there yet. How close can we go? Because again, the Greek things it was actually overnight the night before so this one count run through much. Well, the thing is I say, I didn't agree Palo words again because there was no treaty date. That was at issue in terms of Greece had financial needs. But they could be covered by you know, like some emergency arrangement through the EC. And we the summit had it closing point I space, but it hunting got a legal date by which something was entrenched in Greek law by which this had to happen. I think it can go all the way to little midnight. I mean. With the caveat that you'd still need article fifty extension to deal with the legislation that would then need to be passed. Paul him this parliament could stomach that island this palman. Could let it go Lloyd till midnight. It would it would vote for an extension a few weeks do that without. The difficulty that is you still got to you can vote for the extension, but you you've got to agree with you. You've got to greet for reason, are you? So you think we might for an extension on the you the lays ready. About to run out. Legal process in in motion here, British parliament cannot decide by itself to extend all to fifty that is a an absolute constraints on the situation in which we are now in maybe we can agree in some way. The bull is now in the us cooled. Amazed more has to be decided and worked through and weighed up on that side alaso at this point in one sense. Yes, I mean, but I think that the that is a function of the way in which article fifty works while them because insubstantial terms necessarily, the bombs being put back to the your opinion. I mean each side has got to make a decision about whether it can swallow whether it can take no deal. Not now pretty confident that the British parliament will find some way or other in order to stop that happening. Having said that I think we will say see the say this week that the British parliament old majority in the British parliament is extraordinarily nervous about the idea of. Voiding?

"But in practice, rather tepidly that an actually do want to go through, but they won't the conservative party type responsibility for Brexit. Then you got the Kupa people who want article fifty extended though is not entirely clear what they think will be achieved by that. And then you've got the second referendum people. That's pretty amigo a few citizens assembly people, which leave them out. Yes. And you haven't got anybody who's trying to discipline those groups, and I think in some ways. Most revealing thing that happened this week was the exposure of how league the second random position is the second random fraction in parliament wasn't even confident of the put his in amendment forward it then had everybody who's putting second referendum by Coopers amendment are men when that didn't get through you had some of the leading spokespersons for that. Not least Chuck remain who got extraordinarily angry live on television. Is God completely went down. And you get censor man. Who thought well things have really changed in a negative way. For the position that I've been pushing for the last however, many a months at is. I agree. Absolutely. The second referendum was the big loser from this week. And so to go back to that question. If a versions Cooper amendments gonna go through an extension logical fifty full ward. Which is another of the reasons why think I still have Seth think general elections Perino gonna happen because it would take a huge act of courage, but. The logic points to was general election the other tiny bit political legit is that those divisions. You describe would make an election, potentially quite hard lymph party to fight. I mean, the better go huge problems to apparently iron tunnel. Polling is really bad that totally guard by last time. They can't go into it with Theresa May at this stage. They can't get rid of her. So everything would be a huge role of the dice. But some of the oceans, narrowing. I agree a second referendum is much less likely than it seemed a week ago. I had it. I didn't ever think it was lightly because I thought it was difficult to see how a referendum Bill could get through the house of Commons. I think that was is change is not actually the chances of it happening is the perception of the chances of it happening among as were pushing it so it's finished with the the fundamental question in a way, which is the squaring of the circle between what would allow the G and others who back the Brady amendment. Continue to back the government on what the European Union could do without being seen to basically, abandon the Irish government. It's really hard to see how you can bring those tee positions together. They'll their forms of words that might. Give something to both sides. But to give them the unlikely to. Sign up too, many mice nebulous phrases is that anything tangible clauses that guy that you can see at this point before. I mean never mind before for the fourteenth before most the twenty ninth. In terms of specifics. And and technicalities no Impala implant you on the Sunday enough to the other things, right? There is presumed. They're very technical version of this outcome, which isn't gonna work because the people who understand the technicalities of very few. I think that the only political Spacey you talking about is something where all parties, you know, from the Irish government to those people in the house of Commons. It would then vote for word drawl agreement to the British government to the EU could be near hundred percent confident that the backstop in practice would not materialize. So maybe that is by doing more work in advance about what some alternative to. It may be which is in one sense. The whole possibility of discussing is been shut down, by the way, we the processes of negotiation of word is because. When she sat once, the you. I should say said that the issue of the Irish border had to be part of the withdrawal stage of the negotiations and not part of the future relationship. Then you've got stretch with difficulty that we now run into. So in some sense, we could get ahead of ourselves. Into the alternatives. If and when Britain is left the European Union such that, the buck stop could sort of fade away at mean fade away in the sense of not being in the drool agreement, but sufficient trust that we don't get to that place..

"That they would require which means that they won't back which will give fresh impetus to the people who then think they can peel off remain ish conservative members of parliament to support some version of the Cooper amendment because no deal looms larger and larger as a possible threat. I don't see that. We've yet got three into two if we have got three into two I think Theresa May wins. If we're still three I think she really big problem. What's the third mean is it? Extending Article V day four referendum is extending article fifty four a general election is in order for the EU to agree to extension vertical. Fifty other than for tidying up some legislation is caught to for some clear purposes going to from the us point of view, yield something on general election. I just don't see what yields from the us point of view of the just even you end up with a minority. Labour government is still leave you with the issue of how do you go share it with a new government that on its own admission doesn't want the Boxton, sir. General election could do anything. But I think the political logic points through general election of genuinely parliament kennel get three down into two since me almost all you can do then is have a new parliament agree. It's hard. See why the EU would be thrilled at the thought of delaying a few months in order to face a very uncertain future. Of course, it could result in a majority conserved that at that point, the you can just say no to that. And then that becomes no deal that refocuses. People's Mearns of passing jewel, we go round on this. I find it hard to believe in the same way that went to resume as the fixed component night. But when to resume comes along in two thousand seventeen and says, I want an election. No one's going to desktop a kennel see the EU refusing an extension if the British government says it's to allow us to have a general election that would actually seems to me look terrible from kind of democratic legitimacy point of view. So I think she could call bluff on this. Of course. It would be a strange bluff Kalinka, she could also doing that gas of Turkey ever been really greatly concerned about democratic legitimacy in this home. Concerned about the look democratic legitimacy. Okay. We're not going to get around in circles on this talking politics is brought to you in partnership with the London review of books this week the week. That's just gone looked like a week. Unusually for recent months where the conservative party was coming together and the labor party around. This issue is looking more fractured is that the real picture is it really the case when it comes to the crunch the Tory party's traditional virtue of will hang together. We'll hang separately will hold the food. I think that that that was very mixed. I think that ten, you know, the relative conservative unity lesson go overboard on how far it went. Because you still did have I think around twenty conservative peas who voted for the Cooper amendment did come from some concerted effort within the conservative party to try to narrow the scope of the disagreement. So if you just take the e oh OG the gone from having thousand one problems from the withdrawal agreement to having problems at all about the back. Stop much really about one part of the back stock which is the outskirts of any kind of exit mechanism any form whatsoever from the backseat. So that's a a reduction of the differences between those conservative party won't the present withdraw agreement passan those who have been bitterly opposed on it and trying to unite round. Let's try and deal with this exit is whether that confined Brussels is a whole other matter. But at least within the conservative party, they've got some more common ground than they were. Was leaving the twenty very to around twenty. I think voted for the Cooper amendment aside. I think what you saw we saw this way in the labor party was many more different physicians coming out. And I think that you've got the people who basically supported the government you got gobin in the front bench who supported formerly enthusiastically the Cooper amendment with three line whip..

"There are a whole series of choices that people face there. But come back in two weeks time, you didn't get the movement from the Europeans Tory unity starts to fracture. Isn't there a chance that the an equivalent of the Cooper amendment and extension to article fifty does get through? I'm not saying that there's no chance, but I think that what happened. This. We does reveal that there is a real difficulty in mobilizing sufficient labor votes to try to bring about an extension of auto fifty something that would have to be a second for end of one four and other searches the other amendment the pass was the symbolic rejection of no deal. But you think that the symbolism is easy actually doing it for too many labor members hard? He didn't think that in two weeks time the symbolic vote becomes an actual. I think the the way the I in tip it what happened this week is that parliament clearly there was a majority in parliament, probably a large majority. Then there was on the spokesman amendment. Absolutely do not want in any circumstances. So ever no deal. I think what this week made clear is that the majority in parliament do not either really want to delay Brexit, unless it was for a very specified purpose of getting legis. Flation done on. I suspect that one of the reasons why that might be the case if you look at the polling think it was sky. The did is that something like sixty percent of the electric regard any argument about extending article fifty as really an argument for stopping Broza, and you can see why they might think that. So if we leave aside the tactical problem, and it's a massive Todd go problem about the February fourteenth day in relation to the the European Union. We have seen I think events move that pushed the choice between a version of this withdrawal agreement on a version of this polit-political declaration versus no deal, which is what to resume had been trying to move things towards as say impediment from her point of view, or the difficulty from her point of view is is the next time that these votes have got to come up is ready to soon to have got anything a tool, even I think symbolic changes to the two things issue. After that feels to me like I agree that were this to move to that choice. She would have a pretty good chance of finally getting a parliamentary majority for her deal. But that for the reasons you say, they won't be enough movement on the European side. So it hasn't become a two-way choice. There will still be three options on the table. So there will be significant numbers of conservative MP's who will not back her deal because she's not gold. The concessions will movement tool even enough creative and beauty.

"Eleventh hour and the fifty ninth minute like it wouldn't work, and then a compromise was found, but to me this looks different because essentially the key relationship here is between the government and the European Union the Irish position that's being defended. And as we get closer to the wire, the other Member States really going to abandon Arlen isn't the thing that the opinion does is it gets closer to the wire that it thinks his priorities to hold together. Which is why maybe it backs time in the face of some aspects of the Greek crisis. When to hold together as he gets near the why it's not going to cut loose. Well, I think that first of your points guys bat to the Greek crisis south in the ways in which has been interpreted, which I think generally being the wrong ways in which is being interpreted kuzak isn't a moment achieve. E you unity holding except in a very very perverse way. Because what was going on in those negotiations over the third bailout was that the finance ministers of the eurozone states were trying to expel Greece from the eurozone and the midnight hour deal. So to speak was the Greek government. I'm the great prominence to Cps swallowing so much humiliation to stop that attempted expulsion certain that rather them to expel Greece would have actually fractured European unity. I think that Mirka was in an extremely difficult position in it wasn't clear that she was fishing committed to the position that had finance minister schobul had been pushing. So she gave him sufficient green light to go ahead with the attempted expulsion. And then she gave the tiniest little sweet if you like to see press to try to say, oh, we could just accept this and swallow everything else a you can stay in. So I think is not entirely clear. Even in retrospect, how committed Merckel was to pushing Greece out of the us only could read it that she never quite wanted to do that. But I think what it means is the point of view making comparison with with Brexit is that the issue about your opinion. Teachers really hold now, if you then turned to where we are now with Frank's it from the point of view of other EU governments. I'm the Irish question. Clearly, there was something more state for them than just supporting the government. And that is the credibility of the European Union. And the go shooting position that it took in the fact that it's remained as committed for as long as it has to the Irish position. All that would lead one thing that that was gonna stick on that the twenty six gun abandon island over the Buxton on the other hand, if you're sitting in Berlin, and you looking at the latest economic data out of Germany, and you thinking a k on top of these difficulties will get at in a no do Brexit. And then we're going to have to persuade voters. This was all worth it. I think trying to persuade Jim invoices. Indeed, anybody else's voices that oh this is necessary in order to protect island about the border with the United Kingdom is not the easiest showy say political Selo at the very least it must can raise some kind of doubt. How about when the political calculus now is how close to the word we have to get for that to kick in. Is it gonna kick in before February? Now, I think this is the the tot cool massive technical problem. Theresa May's go is it fourteenth Feb. Always way too soon. Because if the EU is going to move even in ways it get dressed up as being symbolic, but perhaps on the have more substance to them. They're not gonna do it by the fourteenth February. So that then moves the questions calculus in the house of Commons because says one group of people who may hold together that the e twenty seven there's another group of people who may not hold together at the conservative party. He said his nap tight in the Commons. Fool not doing Brexit. Is there an appetite though, still to delay? Because the fact that the Cooper amendment went down and the Brady amendment went through happened on a particular day under particular circumstances..

"brussels" Discussed on Talking Politics

"Renou a few days on from the really interesting series of votes in the house of Commons as various amendments fell one by one until the Brady amendment passed the next day on Wednesday. I traveled to Ireland in a day there and back to Dublin on the way there. This was the morning after the night before I read the not not the British paper that we have to call them the English papers that were celebrating Theresa's triumph and on the way back. I read the Irish newspapers from the same day that were bemoaning Therese's betrayal, and the times one of that Columbus thought made the perfectly reasonable point that the reason we need backstop is precisely because the British government has decided that they can renegotiate the backstop because the whole point of it is to provide security that is people's confidence in the future that the border will not but come a heart border and. Put in those terms. It does make really hard for Theresa May to persuade Brussels, which means at some level persuading the our sh- government. This question can be right reopened because there is a point to the backstop from the point of view. They cannot be comforted that British politics will not really mess them around unless they have that security, but it just it. Partly sounds paradoxical kind of we need the backstop because Brigham saying we don't need the backstop. That is also true that the other side of the paradox is that if the backstory, which is at the moment. The primary impediment tea, but in leaving the European Union withdrawal agreement and the alternative is for leaving with no do then the nature of the rules of the European Union. Ensure the has to be something that might be described as a hard border to the island of island site. The worst case scenario is actually at the moment being hastened along or at least potentially being hastened alone by the backstop that supposed to prevent the worst case scenario Utah's up. Not say is the dilemma here, basically, let's try and see this from the Irish point of view got to pretty terrible options. But no deal gives you hard border. Plus very immediate economic kale's and withdrawal agreement with some modification of the backstop arrangement risks are Buddha. But it does at least for stolley image economic hails. Because I she put in those times nine persuaded the other. Way. There is a good case reading this. I think that this gets to the heart of the political calculation that this Irish government made in picturing divisional, stop which was for Northern Ireland. It wasn't going to include the United Kingdom made. And that was that. Nobody government could contemplate in any shape or form leaving without the deal. So other the backstop went through as part of the withdrawal agreement or a box went through with the withdrawal agreement or Brexit wouldn't happen all some different government negotiated some different dealer a customs union deal, whatever. Well, I think that was really possibility because the customs union is about the future relationship in the future relationship was never going to be negotiated. Join the period, we negotiating the withdrawal thirties, this will no exit on accent might not know do. Yeah. And so I think that the Irish calculation has always been that no deal be so intolerable for Britain that they'll be no possibility. Of that happening. So there is an actually a risk of getting into the scenario. So I think from if you sitting in in Dublin at the moment, you might be more nervous than you had been simply because there is some possibility. Now, I think its is not very high for -bility the prisons and leave without a deal. But at the same time, I think what we conceive in this week's developments the votes on the amendments is that there is no stomach in parliament for trying to stop Brexit all this insufficient stomach component for trying to stop Brexit. So in that sense, the risk of no deal has actually gone on this week. So let's come onto the parliamentary rhythm to get a second. Just one more question about all little said the wider European Union negotiating strategy over the next perilous few days and weeks. There is an people started to say it kind of motif. That's emerging particularly among the books tears. This is how the EU always negoti. She's takes everything to the wire. Don't believe them when they say this can't be reopened look at what happened with the Greeks brought up to the.
