I was at a party and there was a traffic situation. Told your quiz at the party and everyone was trying to park. And there's a build up of cause and there was no by this very narrow lane and it turned out. There was an old lady who was too frightened to back her car up because it was dark. So i got out and i helped her back her car right down lane so everyone could get by. But tom didn't realize that i was trying to help. And i had apparently not left enough passing room where i left this lady's car. He fucking mental fucking genuinely pissed off. And i nearly cried because humiliated and bellsa keen sense of injustice that i was be so chivalrous to help this lady now is being shouted at by one of my heroes and be good. It was just generally embarrassing situation. That's what happened and so they say. Never meet you heroes but they also say never trying to help you. Heroes at in a parking jewish incredibly stressful parking situation feel very good. I just one more question just before surely question. There's a person over the human we'd over there.

"Bound for greatness me joe tracks so ignore us and and just monologue louis you know joe would sit behind my dad. May he faces at lou of blow job faces and stuff and then louis would always chuckle and sow many. Should put your dad on your show. That's the thing to do so we tried it. But then i thought i found it. I find it painful. Because i don't have very close touchy feely relationship with my dad rian. It's not what my family's like and so if you're at a professional situation things get complicated anyway. No matter who you're working with and if it's your dad that it's even more difficult where we were in a beatha remember. We went to one one my dad used to do. During the day we'd hang out and go to the beach and stuff and joe busted my dad taking photographs of topless women totally on his shape. Sit there and occasionally just go. Oh my good- get out my salon. Mango wonderful his creepy catchphrase was. She's got nice eyes. She's miles away. Where you even lovely is and so my so. Joe would be saying mr buxton as really not appropriate. You're not doing that position. Because i'd be like joe man. It's my line. He's not total. Sex is expert be pleased. Can we end up filming until clinical space in space. No that's the show space. Is the club in a beef and as long night and we haven't really got that much stuff because my dad was so appalled by the whole scene that he he was grumpy about and again. It was this tirade of negativity that we had to kind of minimize joe said go. There was a guy that danzig semi-naked with a tiny off on very kind of muslim guy on or greased on a podium. Kind of thing. Grooving around and joe got to come over and start grooving around my dad and wrapping himself around my dad and my death walking free me. You know so not. That's beyond the joke that he's not amusing anyway and then we ended up in the car park outside space with me saying to my dad. Listen you are not being professional. Totally unprofessional flipped at. Don't you get me a professional. Suddenly i was his son again rather than his employer is very fraught. the whole. That's why i have having said that more. The more often than he was total trooper and he and he inhaled when it was asked of. So you're talking breasts. And i think that very much enjoying the music videos that you power which have come for your buck. Yeah but the the one about the my amazing. That's right. I added he pops up in that and he pops up as well in the video. We did for summertime. Blues by guitar will which directed leon beach with dodging explosions. That's awesome as well as an officer. They're very you kind of want to watch these that you get stuck in your head. The songs always wanna watch them loads and loads of time. So they're amazing. But i wanted to ask you about that. Was this spoiler. Don't listen to this. The end of the radio lady woman in the video takes her top off sieve our cs and revise the same woman rights. You at the six. That's right the ice the ice queen. Yeah maiden she takes. She finally takes her clothes off at the end in reveals that she instead of breast. She has penises cox. Yes bought in real life. Did you get to see actual know very keen when she shouldn't feel more uncomfortable than she needed. So we also for tracking purposes. We put bits of colored tape. We put some cox on her feel uncomfortable. Is you take her up now. I it's my nightmare to. I mean i guess i was taking the piss a little bit in that moment of videos that did seem to rely on getting women to take their tops. Yes it just seems like a lazy fall. Back position really in this day and age and i can't believe that so many directors still but then if you take the piss out of that you are presented with the reality to be exactly the same asking a stake atop so yes. I agonized about it and said listen. I don't want you to feel uncomfortable and put these. Are you okay with these big bits of tape. And is there any way i could actually put them on myself and she was very nice about it and i wasn't allowed to put myself in a couple of good. I am disappointed in you. And i was going well. Let's talk about adam. And joe win the nineteen ninety s. Did you see lien herring us your big seek two rivals when we were very jealous. View and yeah. I remember being really very envious of the fact that you to us. You seemed like the mainstream like the established comedians. There was a magazine at the called deadpan s. And you're on the cover of that. And i remember very clearly. The headline there was a picture of you. Guys have walking down the street like a couple of rockstars and said attack attack attack all hail the new heroes of comedy or something like that. I just thought balk those bastards and then next is she dead and won't bust the only front cover. I've ever been on anything. I remember being very impressed by that. And then impressed by the levels of ingenuity in your in your tv show and i think we we wanted to do a thing where we had flash frames information at the end of the parts of our show just before the outbreak. But then you guys did exactly the same thing very cleverly and then we so. We agonized for ages like shit. This is just going to be a total rip off. Leeann herring her. What are we going to do. And i mean it was but then i think we talked a few people and it was one of those things where people said. Don't worry what we very much like shit. We'll just kind of ripping them off. Really what we wanted to do. Which i wanted to do is do the was to us. Because i wanted to be so multi-layered fister fun. Yeah the i wanted. These tap ceefax subtitles. Which.

Tell me about ralph harris. The glass investable would like to hear more about this story that i just learned told you about it. There's surely. I've just told that story millionaire. Visa has pizza. Well maybe circumspect about in the past. And now not i. I'm just now more interested in in tv from the seventies and eighties. New glass on everything here because of lee majors. You railed against that kind. Of a retrospect it's not a fucking batting though right. I what it's worth always thought. He was a bit of a creepy. Fuck obviously one of one of the world's great artists no question and a wonderful musician in person. Kind of weird creepy man. Certainly not causing any aspersions whatsoever in the current climate happily married and wonderful charitable figure. Who no one could possibly think ill. All i know is that he unnecessary got very very upset. Joe for saying that. He seemed mildly autistic mildly jody's aid to his face it. We interviewed him on on this on this coverage of glastonbury. That we were doing. I think in two thousand or something like that and he was. One of those people are wandered through the bbc compound and some assistant producers that have dragged him in front of us and said well paris and two. Okay here we go. And so we asked him to draw something which he probably wasn't excited about and certainly seemed very bored by both of us enough and then right the way through he was doing his noises and stuff only drawing and all this kind of stuff and being just being the wind and a bit. We'd and chippy with us. You know what. I mean like you know. Who are you too stupid. Farkas fair enough. I suppose you could say. But we didn't warm to him and so when he went off the.

"Adam. Joe with joan both cheesy the love active on some films and stuff. You've been neither would jump ahead to that one year when i got constant three film proper big like stardust was like a big. You know what. I've got a story about stardust but i'm not sure if i should tell it because i really shouldn't lord mcalpine rape you when you're a child. Don't don't don't tell that story unless you come back up. And men bats lord mccower. It was a different guy. Each opening to someone who looked very much like laura visited the set. Now this is mike it out. You can tell if you're right and then we can decide later if you want to put it onto the onto the internet as people will listen to it and probably some of them recording. Well mike system eyestone is at the front. Condensed version was that. I blocked about it. I was just. I had a blog at the time. And i was i was just being candid and fun about my experience on the thing. Instead of like teased machiavellian about some of the films that he'd made on this blog about what's it called The one with madonna in it not good on theories it swept away thanks very much and only because he had been joking about it himself on the set but then he read the block did he caught crabs and it was fairly clear has thereafter that i would never ever together part in any matthew form fill ever again and probably not any other film and sure enough the phone incredibly quiet for for many years after that but luckily i got a part in the persuasion sts which is amazing. Amazing see sitcom you guys know that oman full around the appetizing appetizing interesting on its head. It's never really conflict lasting from the persuasions and so everything was fine thereafter was i could have improved it. She should've put shrek shrek in it. But this is the additional thing that would really made it were. The shrek would be played by tim from the office. The actor the carrot by timperley office as just then maybe probably not just want around the back of the same. Come in our quite like you to remake frame for frame but try not just put this superimpose in the background. Who would he'd be replacing knowing we just an extra. He's a my belief is if you put shrek in anything not the shrek shrek asura into anything will make it a hit. I refer to shrek the musical. Should shrek the musical as an example of the shrink shrink the movie. Shrek shrank to they both after exit baby bush tracking it people love people love shrek and i'm tricks in general. Even look that much like the original shrek. This is recognizably. Shrek but it would also have to recognize tim from the office as well that confuses things though doesn't it is just because you don't want to the days doubling stubborn doubling the strength because tim from the office in the persuasion that would have made it a lot better. Well yeah if you put the entire constantly office in a persuasions and then rewritten. Using the words from the office it probably would have improved it to be honest. But i mean hard to do though because it was a very good show we did. We did exactly what we set out to do. Which is to with people's minds but it's all very arbitrary. I think is these things get judged up to one episode and then that's kind of what it was one of those things that when when we were making it. None of us really knew like people always ask. Did you know when you were making it. What you make and i have to say no. None of us really knew the impact. I guess looking back on it. It felt special short felt special but none of us really knew how how what an impact he was going on each one of our careers. We couldn't have now. It's only in retrospect that you know these things but people are still talking about it. Even if it's mainly you. I don't get too many. Yeah it's made me me but it does matter it because then you've gone on to as in a way it's like a like spinal tap moment. You should envy yourself. You've gone onto kind of do your own stuff with the bulk. I mean to be serious though. You know you have moments where you well you just sort of. Try everything really do you. I mean you can be a bit pointless to be. I haven't gone master plan. And got one thing that i'm so amazing that i've got to stick to that and ho- nat and only do that in anything away from the planet's going to fuck up the impact of that amazing thing that i do just trying out lots of things in trying to see which one of them works. Which one of a dozen. But you've done. I was watching loads stuff today. Actually 'cause that's the kind of prepare and there's an amazing variety of stuff like over the whole twenty years working twenty years. I suppose really twenty eight twenty years and have jumped around from films and then just music videos i saw. I don't know how you pronounce the name of the band. One dies or one of these. The one that is is that they would like to die what they wanna die. You get chance to check out that. I've never seen this before but this on your website isn't there has been this just one of the funniest things i've ever seen. I agree with me on stilts. Yeah you're on still some big furry boots gigantic. I have a just a waistcoat on so my my hairy belly is experienced one piece of hassle sticking up in the like some kind of a french or something strenuous dance but you would think if you got him as a script a man a small man are still like furry shoes. Just dust ceram veer. Four minutes that was garth jennings who direct. Yeah and so. He suggested that we do something. Because i kept on saying like you know. Because i know lots of directors and i'm always trying to get in their work somehow. One one particular director has been particularly resistant to my efforts. Joe obviously he gave me the part of voiceover of a nature documentary in the back of the scene of his debut feature garth. And when i got the job of he directed his his debut. Film was the adaptation of hitchhiker's to my vice puts him from the office needed an immediate administration as well. Then it would have been okay. Maybe should have had some more shrimp emotions putting my i. Didn't i didn't.

"To men. Talking folk could be pushed through to one hundred twenty. That's well it's like out in the world of illegal download people think nothing of that kind of they'll happily download prometheus with people just getting wandering around the sound. Sounds as if it's drunk our car that yeah no problem. Let's let's spunk. Some bandwidth said a cool thing to say promotes terrorism. Though somebody doesn't these dvd's the terrorists were very hard on the should work harder producing good quality dvd copier. I think yeah exactly and then they would be indistinguishable from the sell through ones. What would that do that would plunge the world into confusion and destroy the economy of the west. Yeah there is that. I don't really care that much though. I sometimes my policy at ever illegally downloaded anything. Yes i'm going to do with any of my stuff. We see i disagree. I i strongly promote the illegal downloading of anything. That i've ever been involved with i is. I don't make any money from anywhere so i couldn't give a fuck. I think people are very welcome. I'm sort of flattered and delighted if anyone would spend any amount of time trying to download anything i've ever done. The only thing that i think is commercially available. That i've done is the adam and joe. Dvd which was a compilation. Not even the whole set of the series series. We done on channel four thinking of grandma. My wife has a copy of this. Dvd right. i never. I'm very proud of i. Object probably watched it. I've watched it. Because i was interviewing. You probably should watched all of it. Don't worry about. It can be probably a lot of time. It's it's a beautiful object and we agonized about every aspect of it visually and design to ourselves. And were about it. So i think people probably well advised to go and buy that actual but if they want to see it really badly and just download bits of it fine. I'm not against. I think he does become a phenomenon and download breaking bad like the current ones. You can't get by that when it comes out. Yeah exactly. I've done that same kind of thing myself in another life admit to. I've been doing this beautiful carefree sued for anything that we're less quickly. Get out of the way you'll be asked about this all the time what. How was it being buried in random. Hawker thousand one remake. It was very nerve wracking. I like to four at hurdles. That would be my indian name. If i if i had native american indian named it would be falls at hurdles because i never rise to challenge whatsoever in any time i get an opportunity or i'm in an exciting environment. I fuck it up underwhelmed and that one of my first acting jobs. And i've i've always liked the idea of being actor and always wanted to act and i've intimately got these little opportunities and that was one of the very first thanks to charlie higson. Who is writing and directing that show. I think so. I was really excited about it and then turned up. And you know vacant barb. They're all my heroes in one place at the same time. I didn't have much to do. I think all i had to do is go up some stairs. i think. In revenge of the pope people. I was a security guard. And very you know just went up the stairs charlie hickson said. Do you want to do anything else. Any other kind of stuff you want to do. Make it more funny or anything now. I'm fine. I i can think of anything because i didn't feel as if i was in a position to unveil some amazing stick. You know what i mean. It could've tripped on every single step. Does that recently as right or my trousers gradually fall down revealing my genitals by the top of the staircase. What about that. Johnny right for the slot that we have thanks. I have felt confused by why i was there in the first place. Really and just overawed by become bob and i had a conversation with res in his caravan about cheese and it seemed to me that i was actually in some sort of weird sketch to about cheese. And also what's the other thing that he's a real expert in is kind of blood sausage or something like that so talking about like favorite kind of cheese and thinking. Wow he's really like that actual stuff he talks about and i kept on expecting to suddenly talk about something nor but he didn't want to my emergency questions that yeah. What is your favorite type of cheese cheese cheese. So that was the other thing was. I couldn't really partake of the compensation. It was shit. Hey cheese if you had to eat one of them no which one which you e i suppose premila. Some of them are nights. You should give him ago really. Likes the diseases. Well the like the stench of death feet and death. The really smelly ones can be some very bland. It's either very much smell of feet in death or he's just a little bit not too bad it's like he's just died not just taking this obesity beaten. Not too bad yeah. That's fine. it's either that or it's like jesus it's the walking dead. I'm from cheddar. I find this anti cheese. Talk very upset. Story is the best cheese in the world cheddar. Is this something you eat a lot of cheese because cheese one of the few things. That isn't good for you. That i don't really know very much because it's not very good food. Yeah yeah so. I've kind of given up on a bjp pizza no. I don't i mean that's that's the only learning stuff. I learn things about says la you this that you know i i. I'm so envious of people who do eat pizza. Because i can see that it's clearly like one of the great things in the world. There's no smell of death fully. just nice. It's all mel in. Sometimes i've gone and tried to join in gone to a pizza restaurant and ended up just getting like some dough with a couple of anchovies and some tomato sauce. Yeah and tried to join in with all that. It's not the same because the sandwiches the same thing and you could apple sandwich that cheese in it but a pizza without cheese doesn't work no way mix is just think it's just a sammy's flattened pizza cheeses like the doors of that.

Mariss i'm not meeting people on just these particular ones. I really might be far badly.

And i didn't do. The thing they said is. Maybe edit that out. So i've really started wearing. I hates to these podcasts. Because i think. I'm i think i'm an idiot and i read noise laugh staff and i think i think i don't understand why any of you like me like me eighty spur. Thank you likely. But i listened back to the adam. Buxton jared the edinburgh fringe and set some time and that was the end of the edinburgh fringe. I was kind of loose tongue. I said some terrible things and now this is happened. I'm something god retrospectively. I mean all kinds of trouble so fuck but the best advice. I can give to any perspective and i did say this about the last before it went down. I think i think david mitchell treated me the best in the interview the way after we interviewed by me is to treat me as if i'm a quite intelligent five year old child is i think that's what he did. And so the questions put to you know not a six hundred six year old and intelligent five wrote that is that's why they go is much give this. It'll go haven't pretty a plan this. I've got new iphone.

That's he says it's monday. Nine hundred and number two thousand and twelve and nine. That's the today's date. When is talking cock on in london. You treat me siri.

Even though we are ultimately rivals fighting a war to get the most viewers and be seeing listeners and be seen as the greatest podcast interview of all time it seems to be a war. That adam buxton. He's currently winning. But i will not go. I will come back. yeah. I'm seeing to be losing all the battles against other people but i the my life isn't over yet i will show you. Who is the best by the end of my existence Look i know you're gonna love this. I absolutely adore talking to this man. And he's tiny. He's harry This was when he wasn't an orphan. And but you know that emotional vulnerability has made him a greater podcast. And that's why i had to have a heaven. Bollock taken off this year just to try and catch up with him. By having some a little bit of vulnerability behind it just seems to have made me copy of that isn't it. Ironically i suppose it's moby copier in two ways really. Isn't it when you think about it anyway. This isn't about me. This is about adam buxton. Please sit back relax. Enjoy this amazing retro robusta and dubai livestream to james acosta. Ed gamble and robin asquith. Rigid hunting dot com slash gigs. You can check out that a square theatre dates. And i have three. Tickets will be available very soon. Goodbye go away. Ladies and gentlemen into the next day. Just leave his sweet willie brush. Please welcome rigid. Having thank you. A reference to the pre show banter there for the people. Welcome to the cost as the cook calling. Hannah's two per it's been primed face task. Guess adam buxton coming up. But i i will attempt stand up. That was not as good as the stuff just did. I will mention that. I asked last week for people to send in essays. About the the mick jagger day frankie boyle dave gorman's ringo starr conundrum that was discussed at length. I only got one say from rowan. -sego which may not be israel name. It's a poor effort. There's only two sides of four long. I would have given it. Might be d. minus baz is the only entry. Here's one he doesn't give his address psyche has than anything but my favorite thing about is the all the way. Through he refers to mick jagger as mick jagger as if he's a scottish man the people here knew about already which is why it didn't get as big as parents is funnier than the people. I've read the whole thing. We might put that out as an extra podcast for you. Because it's very interesting for promises. Mcalpine his in the news for he is not a beautiful as the non non-paedophile is unusual amongst conservative politician in the has decided to sue people. That's why is unusual. He's decide the super bowl tweeted about him. I think he does he of is one thing joking around on twitter making joke arena podcast but to just one thing is fine but just to stay openly someone is is a crime is what is one they as is a tower. Think he's he's going to sue. Anyone tweeted apparently. This is planning to for five pounds. If he tweeted or re tweeted that he will sue. You have to five pounds to a children's charity and it's nice to see the non-paedophile can do charity. Work is that is that makes me feel a lot better. So lord mcalpine is doing some great work for people who just because they nice report. They don't really they don't even want to get the that just doing it. Because they think let's give some money to disadvantage. People might sneak into five parents. It's quite good value for the libeling. Someone that's that's not so bad if i was thinking. Now which tori mp do. I wanna falsely accused of being fee. I saw actually five pounds could do all of the tory. Mp's because i all tory mp's rpd. That's my plan. I'm happy by five grid. W about two thousand five hundred quid. But the thing is some of the probably arpita fall. So they won't. They won't be able to sue me back so it's not even in a sense if you think about the biglou. Don't sue me are sort of saying that they are also is a good way of flushing amounts to find the real ones of any. Let's say all of them make you fat. Because i don't really trust the liberals anymore so let's say all mp's pedophiles at six hundred and fifty people who consume me and don't sue me five pounds. Now this we've done.

Then it becomes easier and you learn to build on and fix your mistakes from the negative remarks. Along the way you'll be enriched for capricorn's like me into his naturally because rare. Houston it's always about enforce. There's a lot that i want to focus on throughout this entire interview fire nation. But the one thing i wanna pull out about. What a alger said is patients. I mean all of them were brilliant but patients. It is such as something that today. I see more than ever people. Just don't have an seems like the younger generation. The less patience. I have so many people all the time coming up and saying. Hey john like. I've been doing this for two months and i'm not seeing any returns. Think any success and like it's been two months. Where's your patients. Where's your persistence. Wears your you gotta keep at that thing. Fire nation so in doing some research on ual. I saw that you were chosen to be a mentor at the harvard. Business school of. I mean this is top of the top. Why were you chosen. I was invited to comment there at harvard. Business school interpreters enterpreneurial program during two thousand thirteen. I spent on her the per person recognized and identified the Me after by lifestyle Lecture action lecturer. I approach the Was approaching the podium and the right the way after are presenting center students raise their hand. Us meet who is interpreting. Though i had my lecture plan i wanted to follow with students entering pro in prague improvise and said without hesitation that was born today or over the world is it potentially becoming in their furniture but the system. We live in prohibits most of them to become one why because of the barriers that society puts in front of us when the baby was born starts to crotone tone touching breaking things. The current say. Don't do that then. He's babies go through nursery and school and approach daily by new regulations of what they could or couldn't do then that news when they grow and enrolling through diversities and then it lasts. Even when they get married they fiend. The rules are filed on them. The handcuffs are placed on their hands and brains is additional rules imposed or their lives better directed in buxton through what they can't do this. Fact of life interferes in some Sometimes sabres independence and free thoughts of many of us. So my advice to you all. I said to be group is right. Now get hold of the keys. And i threw the keys to them. Release the handcuffs. Allow your brain to think without restrictions feel free to go with any idea thought you may have even if it seems ridiculous or unrealistic at the moment.

I knew then but they got the message. I love that genie in a bottle analogy. I mean fire nation. Can't you just picture that. I mean it is such a great analogy. It's so true and it's something that you need to be striving towards and forward

From Shy Girl to Confidence Coach
"Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself and about your story and how you went from being being a quote shy person to confidence coach. Yeah for sure And you know I'll take like three full days to tell you the whole story but so I am currently confidence and empowerment coach. So I work with women who really struggle with the shyness and insecurity and we work together to to help build that self confidence that level of self love and that spiritual lightning because I really believe that that is an integral part of building your self confidence. This is kind of learning to know yourself in that facet. So that's what I do. I'm also a wife and Mama. I've got a two year old daughter named avery. And she is just a firecracker absolute light of my life and so so much what. I'm learning and teaching my clients. I'm also trying to instill in her everyday. So she grows up to be a confident woman who loves herself so it's just a little bit about me on top of that I also podcast. I am may artsy kind of design freak. I've got an se shop where I create great journaling tools and workbooks and things along those lines from a creative outlet so it's a little bit of like Jane of all trades but that's that's an overview of kind of who I am and what I'm doing now I'm but in terms of my own journey I grip a really shy kid. I say say painfully shy because I just felt so uncomfortable in my own skin and I mean I would be afraid to order food at a restaurant restaurant or ask somebody what time it was because I was so terrified of getting some sort of a negative reaction from people and that that transpired very much into junior high and high school where it's a tough time for most girls that age and I just really struggled with knowing knowing my own worth and feeling like I was of any worth or value to my friendships and that kind of transpired into adult relationships and also me being able to speak up or not speak up. I guess it would say in the workplace so a really battled in struggled many different levels of insecurity especially around like authority figures. So that's something we could even dive into but there came a point in my in my journey I had just been broken up within cheated on by boyfriend of three years and kind of forced my hand to really take a look at who I wanted to be wary. Wanted my life to go and it was Truthfully one of the best things to ever ever happened happened Mu despite it being such shitty time but it was It was the kickstart of a fitness journey. A spiritual spiritual journey and a personal development journey. That has just gone into the most beautiful whirlwind of of this just. I don't even explain Lina. This explosion of growth over the last eight years now and so over time. I've learned a lot about myself a lot about who I WANNA be. And I've gained a significant amount of tools and practice in terms of of stepping into this person. I am today today and it's just I feel like it's just beginning awesome. Yeah I discovered you through my friend Kelly and she told me about one of your webinars that I attended with with her And it was just so cool because I really resonate with your story like being a shy person. I think I've kind of overcome that in the last couple of years a little bit. It definitely not as shy as I used to be but I really liked the workshop that you did online and could you tell us a little bit more about that in the other ways you work with with clients. Yeah absolutely I believe the one that you you had done with me was Basically how to speak with confidence. So how show up in front of a room or in front of a crowd or in a presentation and really feel prepared and confident in yourself or even stepping on Oppressing live going live on social media on videos youtube even doing things like podcasters so common nowadays for so many people especially young young entrepreneurs and I've come across a tons of people who are so terrified to do things like that and I've I've one thousand percent Ben there and so I have in my past job as a personal trainer working in the fitness industry. I'm somewhat still affiliated with it but I would have to often present in front of my peers and my bosses and even the CEO of May company every once in a while. And I felt like like every time I had to do that. I was going to Shit my pants. I was so nervous like sick to my stomach over it but I learned a lot of tools over time. I and I did a lot of things to help. Prepare myself for those so that I would show up. I would give it a hundred and ten percent and honestly crush it every single time. So that's another thing that I help people with How how Excuse me how to have hard conversations how to have hard conversations uncertain as a because. That's another thing that a lot of people struggle with is really how to convey how they're are feeling when the stakes are high. Had A have you can call it a fierce conversation a tough conversation. Crucial conversations conversation. I've learned how to approach really touchy subjects with people and be able to communicate what you're feeling why you're feeling it what you hope to get out of the solution and not feel like you're going to either Krummel in the middle of that conversation or avoid it altogether because you're worried about what the other person is thinking and I think everybody can identify with having that problem at some point in their life because it's scary it's scary to to have these tough conversations when the stakes are higher when they're some maybe a lot of risks so I mean that's come from having to have tough conversations in my own relationships ships from working with clients in the fitness industry talking to them about the the real the realism of them reaching certain goals and not taking taking the appropriate actions. And that's also come from me being in higher level management in having to either terminate people or tell somebody what they need need to do in order to continue to work with us on the team so again a lot of it is coming from personal practice and of course you know tools that I've picked APP from my own mentors and other resources like you know coaching courses in Buxton podcast and all that stuff. Wow and so what do you find that. It's tools tools that help people gain that confidence or do you feel like it's just putting small things into practice over time I think it's actually more mindset Sir than anything but I think having tools in your back pocket is a comfort. It's a comforting thing it helps you feel like okay. That's that's kind of what I needed in order to feel prepared in Infield confident and I think that those are kind of like training wheels if that makes any sense like doing the things that talk about. Let's say in preparation for a speaking engagement. there's a lot of little steps that you can do but over the time I think if you can just sit down for two minutes before you go onstage and breath intention and set your intention for how you want it to go you will be just as successful in. You can feel justice confidence so I think it's more mindset and your ability to trust yourself but using those tools tools for a period of time as they as they become more natural I think that helps you cultivate that trust in yourself.

"buxton" Discussed on Trial Lawyer Talk
"Yeah do you I. The bigger question is deloitte ever not feel alone in the courtroom. I was trying to think I I was saying this the other day to somebody I said. I think this is how I know that I'm supposed to be a trial lawyer every time I'd do it. I mean I'm nervous. I'm scared all these feelings and all this stuff comes up but if you keep doing it over and over again those things don't stop. I would think surely by now this would be over with but it's not Buni say alone in the courtroom. What I think about is being in the sound dumb saying you're totally in the zone. You're alone and you hear about it like it. Maybe it's because there's no cell phones in court. There's nobody able to get a hold of you right unless you reach out to them. There's a calm quiet to that chaos for me. I feel alone but I also feel if I'm really dialed in that. That aloneness makes me or allows me the gift to make a connection with each person right. And that's something I try and do every time. Well if we think about jurors who live in the same world that we do with the same facebook social media in bombardment of information who must also feel alone. It's a great point. So how does that relate to connection with jurors well for me if I'm truly alone or feeling that way which or scared or confused which I am every time. I'm not too me long time to call myself a trial lawyer. An intake tried enough cases. Like a told you a theory and I'd be through the nervousness. The awkwardness descru- ups. By now in I'm not but that's what connects me with tears. I mean if I reverse roles with a juror. I'm like this is insane. I'm being put around like cattle. I'm having to make friends immediately. I'm all these people. It's just an whole awkward process. Where else other than your home? Perhaps does a man walk in and a rope and tell you what to do. I mean it's a weird situation. I mean we don't have somebody here in the corner typing down everything that we're saying when I was a lady with. What looks like a box of Kleenex. Pulling random. Names out of it you know. It's a unique environment in and of itself. That while being alone is scary. You should welcome that aloneness. Now that I'm thinking about it you should welcome that aloneness because it gives you a chance to connect and if we assume that the jurors I just liked like US longing for real connection and to be heard and to be listened to It sounds like there may be some opportunity there. Think about this and I don't know if you do this in your trials but if you're really listening to a juror you will automatically connect what they need with what she already having your case right. So the cases. I look back on where I've had some really good results where I'm like taking pictures. Not only with my clients with the jurors because we are a group and we are so proud of the justice that we've done it's amazing and it's because you just sit there and are in the moment with them you have to feel connected to somebody if they're listening to you in there. Give me what you need. Happy not how can I mean? It's Kinda hard to be disagreeable with somebody like that. Wouldn't you think absolutely? Why don't we talk about the concept of Struggle in the courtroom? Because we've all been there. Where finally a topic that? I can talk about competence and myself as well as an experience where you're in that moment in the judge says something and you freeze. You don't know you don't know what to do next. Yeah when the panic sheer panic sets in such as the in maybe you could see me getting triggered effort this from I can. I can still see it them. Standing there in my closing argument with these papers rolled up in my hands. Like I'm about to beat a dog with them. I'm so just out of my mind. Not Scott I'd like to tell you. This was ten years ago but it wasn't. It was two years ago and I don't even know what it was particularly that I said that caused the huge objection in the judge to not only sustain the objection but to stand up in go. Mr Buxton in this is in my second closing like a minute or two from being out of there and I froze and went. Okay this is familiar territory for you dialed in like the training. We received here at the trial lawyers. College you know when all Hell's breaking loose near a panic dot com and I just turned. I'M NOT IN THE MILITARY. I did a military type. Turn look to the judge. Looked HIM DEAD IN. The eyes bowed to him and apologized. Gave him the power and the respect that he needed and said. I'm sorry man. I'm sorry I'll straighten up. He said Okay and I just turned around and we got back to it and I laughed and I was humiliated will actually as in the case that was just telling you about TJ. Stephanie Charney you know and I was humiliated because I thought I blew it right there at the end I could have but I think the way that I handled. It saved me well. Let's talk about that for a minute because lots of lawyers think when you're in that moment of struggle and you don't know what to do and everybody in the courtroom concede that you're scared. How does that impact the jury? Well they lose confidence in you right if you try. Hide the struggle. Then you're hot something from them okay. And I don't know about you but I don't have very good connections or I don't get very good results with people. Think I'm bullshit them. You will SPEC UP. Let's assume you don't hide it in other words you're stuck and you're in astrology. You don't know what the heck to do in your standing there and you sell them the struggle and they're like is this guy even longer practice or what are the opposite. You know that by having that struggle you are connecting with the jury. Because you're real right and as long as you're not trying to be asked them but you're being open and honest and transparent yes does that. It's it's something I think that does connect you to juror right but at the at the same time and I think that's the training does with the trial lawyers college this about the trial lawyers college but I think that you must have to have a huge ego. If you think that you're not going to struggle in a jury trial okay so I think it all starts with being self aware. What happens to Jim Buxton when he struggles? Lotta time if my struggle gets out of control. It turns into frustration and anger and frustration and anger are not emotions that jurors respond to when they're not ready for them right however if he stay calm and in that frustration or that struggle turns into something. Beautiful it has the opposite effect. It just creates so much respect for you as a person it gives you leadership qualities because you're not panicking in the moment right. I mean I think seeing the struggles one thing seeing how you respond to it is another right so there's all these little opportunities and I think for a trial lawyer most of it. The juries make their decisions on. Aren't the words that are being said or the facts that are being spoken? It's as simple as you're walking into a high school that you'd never been been to and you see all these people if I'm reversing roles with the juror. Which lunch table. Not GonNa sit at now. There's only two choices in there was tabled. You want your journey to sit at well. Sure thank maybe WanNa sit with the smart guy that knows everything the cool guy or is it. Somebody that has mutual respect from everybody from the judge to the janitor treats everybody equally the same learns about them in Dire. What do you need? What is well you know? When's the last time you're a trauma juror? Didn't say to you. I don't want to be here. We better be here for good reason. And I'm ready to get out of here okay. Well if you're struggling in there and it takes you three four hours per witness that struggles not endearing to the jury the L. Let's talk for a moment about control because when I'm preparing for trial in starting trial I tend to put a tremendous amount of pressure on myself worried about all the things that could go wrong in. The reality is in a trial. Were very little in control. Yeah you have control of nothing. You have control of what evidence you want to try to get in right as applying to slow your. What else do you let people go one on your jury and says? I Want I want. Somebody's GonNa vote for me right off the bat preferably without even having asked me a question but I'm not going to get that right so for me. What I do is on the big believer in energy and power of intention in. You can create problems. If you're thinking about problems you can create solutions just like you're thinking about solutions or feeling solutions every trial lawyer. Tate's it's got to be able to think on your feet right. You got to be able to deal in the calm the chaos and that the question. I guess I lost yet. No absolutely I mean. One thing that I found helpful is acknowledging that there's so much that is out of my control in the courtroom the in a way it enables me to be more comfortable without putting all the pressure on myself when I think about in a control. Is that what we're saying in the courtroom? What are you trying to control the ask yourself? What is what am I trying to do you? Can't you can't control a lot of what goes on in a courtroom right like you can get rid of a lot of objections by being intentional purposeful. You're that way you're very intentional. Very purposeful I bet that serves you well in court. You can eliminate a lot of problems but then once that jury sworn in.
"buxton" Discussed on Trial Lawyer Talk
"We simply have great lawyers to great stories from cases that had a profound impact on them. So let's get started. I'm very glad to be hang out with my pal Jim Buxton. Who's zoo. Wonderful lawyer wonderful. Human being super talented guy and Jim Practices in Oklahoma. It has criminal and civil work. Jim Thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me. Can you share with us? A STORY OF A case. That had a profound impact on you. Stephanie. Tj Chart and. He came to me about four years ago with the problem. That I don't know how I would have dealt with had happened to me. They're young couple in their homes have been destroyed and nobody would help him and I believe they've been to a couple of lawyers before me and they were rejected. Said your case in good enough for whatever it was and I remember developing this relationship with them I came in. I heard their story. As we grew closer dislike any relationship. I mean like ours. Ours didn't start off as friends. Hell we didn't know each other but over the course of time Stephanie. Tj Week would meet and talk and develop this relationship. And I'd go to their home. What was left of it? Their houses destroyed by sewage from the city government and I said in it with them and smell it and feel it what it felt like we developed this real close personal bond which is good but by the time we get to trial. She looks at me when we're waiting for the jury and she says I don't care anymore and at first I was just like I was hit. Like what do you? What do you mean you don't care about the outcome? Reverse roles with her she says Jim. What do you do for us? You are her yes. She said Jim what she did for us. Who Cares what the outcome is? It doesn't matter. All we wanted was somebody to hear us and fight for us and getting out of her role. Cheap broke down in tears. She and her husband were from Oklahoma. And it's hard for Oklahomans to ask for help in my opinion. We're just do it ourselves. Calm people get through any kind of situation. We don't need anybody back in our asses up and to realize that all my clients want is to be heard and for somebody to five forum had a profound impact on me and I was like okay. So we're waiting in the verdict comes back and it's a really good vert and so everything's happy with the story ends well and then the appeal comes and the case part of it gets where we have to go. Try IT so I'm recommending that we probably should try and settle the case and she has gym. Do whatever you want. I told you already did already satisfied my needs. And so that's probably the closest connection that I've ever had with the client in that story of them in the trust that they had me and just believing in me because I heard them was just. It was profound so take us more into the details of the story of the story. The case where the story of Yes. Well we do a budget government cases where I see the government for failing to maintain their utilities and literally When things go wrong with the sewage line it blows it like a fire hydrant. Firehose into your house like imagine a fire hose of sewer with turds and every unimaginable thing. You could imagine you're in the sewage system being blown all through your home. And who do you have to sue the government? And so maybe what I think is how they arrived at me in feel the way they felt about me was because if I reverse roles within is the rejection right not only the betrayal of what. The city did by pumping their house full of raw sewage in not cleaning it up but then turn in a tort claim. We'll take care of you in go. When you fill out the form dislike. They want and then they never hear anything again. Because the statute says you know it's deigned denied if you don't hear from them said then they wait and they wait and they wait then. They eventually called a lawyer in most lawyers won't handle cases against the government at least going on the offense against them so they get rejected rejected until they can find us and we take every case. But we try to you know. Help the ones that we can. And so just just so profound in Wisconsin. I don't know if I'm answering your question the right way. But that's how my connection was just often my. I is on a prize. That's not the same this sense of rejection in needing to be heard. Where does that come from in Jim? Buxton's life lots of places oftentimes feel that I'm not hurt and it. It came from being the youngest in my family. I think from just the world we live and work. Nobody takes the time to look somebody in the eye and just listen to him and connect. I yearn for that. I don't know about you but I yearn for a legitimate connection. I don't know if it's so much as being heard like I have a lot of problems with listening. Don't listen because there's so much going on in the world so much chatter in chaos and I think it's just so refreshing when you just have just a connection and I that's what I mean by being heard like I can. I can hear you right now. And you haven't said a word so behind that there seems to be a loneliness being a trial lawyer is lonely. Trial lawyer are you lonely. Absolutely yeah I feel alone. Oftentimes when I'm surrounded by other lawyers oftentimes not. I don't feel hurt and if I looked really deep inside. Is that mine need semi ego. Probably do you think lawyers ever alone in the courtroom?.
Immad Akhund, CEO & Founder of Mercury, Shares His Start-Up Journey
"Imad welcome to the podcast all right thanks for having me you're a cool cool cuckoo in tech startup called mercury now and we'll get into everything about challenger neo future of business banking let's get into how you got to this how you got here here we always been a startup person you've got software background right yes so i've been doing some sort of little hacky PHP things since since i was a teenager kind of thing and i mentioned it computer science at university in cambridge in the UK off after that i worked for about a year at bloomberg which is the only real job i've ever had and since then for the last eighteen years i've been doing startup so this is actually my fourth both company did you grow up in UK mostly i moved to the UK when i was nine originally born to buxton okay so you moved there you're you're like tinkering with building things and starting things and you go work for for bloomberg why'd you do that you know i i didn't i didn't necessarily know what i wanted to do at that stage i was pretty good at programming the main can a career path that seemed obvious fact then was either management consultancy or investment banking and blue blue was like somewhat toast to investment banking actually i applied for a lot of other jobs did not get the US baking and salting yeah i think the real underlying thing is i had absolutely no passion for them it was just it's like the default announcer and bloomberg does have more other jobs that that even they must been banged injustices that have like some level of programming the not really programming jobs that kinda a little bit of programming and finance jobs whereas bouma jawbone a real programming job and that's just something i've just naturally been good at an of his studied it as well so it was easier for me to just get into that kind of job and that was probably the only one that applied to that was more of a programming job how that works out because he was society pushed all this pressure on like going to get that job at golden sachs mackenzie or something i mean back then this is two two thousand and five why there was google facebook in the UK so there was a really interesting startups to work at i think i would have done that instead ed there was there was safa companies but the seemed like various IBM more microsoft is something which was like appealing to me right yeah i mean i did the investment banking path because society said that the path that i should do where we'll definitely was not right for me took me time and but i mean i'm happy happy i did it and it's good skill set but part of my journey okay so anyway so your bloomberg you're doing a real programming job did you like it no no toll the toll i was i was just really board you know that you have this likes us really know what the thing you building is full like given rough idea and it's like bloomberg has so many functionalities the term no duct can do anything i was in the fixed income group something to do with we'd like mortgage fixing something that i really can't even remember what it was a trading systems on fixed income but it was like a specific project i must have worked on and it was very interesting to me so i would but it was also very draining widely nine dollars come home i would feel no energy do news site projects or anything like that but me and my friend at bloomberg we used to reject crunch all the time this is in my opinion the heyday take ron trade lay bubbles pretty much only tech news that was and it was always very interesting who like someone selling someone's gonna start up dead etc and yeah from our perspective widows program is in it seemed like oh we could build that right we would see something and we'd be like okay that doesn't seem that hard it's user system and malaysian yeah obviously we underestimated like what it takes to make a real business it was much like we could do the software benefit do we would share these links with each other ed we would just kinda fantasize about know lugging bloomberg and then eventually after yeah we you know we had an idea the original idea was actually kind of different it was like the people in the UK that pretty obsessed with properties and we wanted to make a map where you could see all the different variables that come into a location so you could see house prices crime rates distance to public transport the restaurants all that stuff that was idea that we had and we're like oh that's a good idea actually there was a company remembers his name but just IPO that was kind of doing like trulia type thing in the UK re real move do i think anyway so we were like okay this could be a real business like this company did okay league so yeah i'm on the the thirteenth month of base give the job we both quit and then we started working on this they go to work a little bit on the side and you said you were like so tired and he came home from work so it's like so we just did it did it my view back then the thing in the UK is actually very it's not easy but it's much cheesy to be a startup us and then is in the US you have free healthcare if you actually know making money the government will pay bill house mostly the eighty percent like there's a housing benefit and though neak location is you know making money like it's not like the hasn't doesn't have to be good reasons why you think you money so actually didn't have much in savings things by we quit i had like maybe six thousand pounds and savings but i did the matt's i'm very frugal by like if housing is mostly free yeah i thought i could survive like at least a year manage yeah exactly so we started working on an my view on newborns like i knew i could get another job so it wasn't i didn't think it was like much of a risk and just quitting and doing it i thought it would be fun i could get the job if it doesn't work out i've also actually okay with maxing out greg god's in these spirits i've done it multiple times i don't recommend it i i didn't live badly and you know we were able to kind of focus complete the on this and it was fun when we were young as well like there's no responsibilities no there's no real risk of like you know now what would happen if it didn't work
Dont spend it all at once: Pakistan and the IMF
"Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. In the west there seems to be a push towards vegetarianism and veganism, but that's just a tiny blip in a bigger upward trend in meeting around the world, that's bad news for the environment. But in a narrower sense, it's good for people. And a century ago. One in eight girls born in France was named Marie now that number is one in one hundred demographers love, these kinds of trends, they reveal much more than census data do about. How France is secularize ING and globalizing. But I. Focused on is poised to accept a hefty bailout from the International Monetary Fund. Again, the over indebted country has just sought it's twenty second loan from the F. In a speech while opening a hospital last week, prime minister, Imran Khan, laid the blame on his predecessors. Maimed Pakistan's economic predicament on the previous government. Fingered the amount of debt at the previous government has racked up. Simon cox. Economists emerging marketer. And he pointed out to Pakistanis that fixing this problem would require some hardship in the short term. And he'll so reassured them that Pakistan was in reality of rich country. And the things would get better eventually, and how have done is responded to news of this loan. So there's some dismay some disgruntlement little bit of surprise Iman Khan doing campaigning for the elections last year said he wouldn't turn to the IMF. Although most economists knew that it would be inevitable. He also made large claims for instituting a new kind of welfare state in Pakistan that would take better care of the poor. So that sits at odds with the austerity that Buxton is now going to have to endure, although when should say that the IMF program is attempting to make some provision for the poor. It's certainly been causing a big stir in parliament and the opposition in particular have been accusing the government of selling Pakistan out accusing Pakistan of allowing dictate terms. One particular point of contention is. From this Imran Khan shook up his economic team of the last couple of weeks. Now, the head of the central Bank is a Pakistan national, but also a former official at the IMF. So some critics feel day with this. Right. So let let's roll back a little bit here. How did Pakistan's economy get into such a mess in the first place so Pakistan's been a regular customer? If you like the IMF, and it took a loan twenty thirteen which actually went quite well. And so around twenty sixteen the economy look to have stabilized, but from then on the previous government ran some unsustainable policies in particular the exchange rate to expensive which the competitiveness of puck stan's exports, and they also ran two large budget deficit. So it's too much spending not enough tax collecting, so the big export import Gant, and as a big revenue and expenditure gap for the government the economy, we should say grew pretty well during that pair. But it had these two unsustainable gaps and eventually investors cease to be willing to finance these gaps and the economists after then live with them Enes. So it sounds like some kind of intervention was was needed, and I know with with Pakistan as a as you say regular customer of the I MEF why are so many Pakistanis opposed to to their presence their their their lending. This is a common problem that the IMF aces countries pursue unsustainable. Economic policies. They live beyond their means. Now, the IMF at that point will offer alone to ease this transition, and so the lending will come with conditions attached. So the lending is misused to just by more time. Now, those conditions often quite painful, they often require a cuts in spending increase in taxes often evaluation of the exchange rate, which makes imports more expensive. So none of that is very popular. The question is whether if the I'm wasn't there with the situation even worse and typically answer's yes. Well, it can't be the case that can only turn to the IMF for money or they're not other lenders. Yes. So what sort of different this time? If you like is there an array of other lenders that the Pakistani authorities have leaned on Saudi Arabia has given quite a lot of money and also allowed Pakistan to defer payments on oil, the United Arab Emirates has stepped in and also China, of course, and for while the government sought a could make do with these friends they wouldn't have to deal with the F as well. But the money came short, basically, fills about half the gap, and if I had to turn to the IMF the other half, and how likely is it then on this sort of twenty second go round as Pakistan to actually stick to what the suggests this time around. So it's somewhat unlikely. No one particular to cut Pakistan off, you know, it's a country. That's in a very unstable geopolitical region is the country that has also of its own internal instability issues country of two hundred million people with nuclear weapons, and you know, one of the friends had in the past. Although friend is a strong word is the United States, which has provided an awful lot to economic and military assistance, and so often in previous deals with the F the IMF requested things that Pakistan has then vodka reluctantly partially agreed to and typically the IMF, let's it off at issues waiver said it says the conditions that we attached alone have been waived, and that's become a sort of a game that gets played between the two sides. Now, this is a new government. It's got a good team in place. Good economic team in place. They have their own reputations at stake. So this probably a higher probability this time that in previous occasion. But I'd be surprised if every item in this agreement gets into, but Pakistan doesn't see the IMF as a sort of lender of last resort just lender wondering the degree to which its existence, and this, you know, giving the money, and you can take the advice if you like kind of practice disincentivize is good fiscal discipline. So the IMF often finds itself in a difficult position. It doesn't want to be held responsible for triggering a crisis. It doesn't want to finally cut a country often send it into the abyss won't come think of other examples like Argentina where the became heavily invested in the success of its program and ended up throwing good money after bad an impact fans case it often turns a blind eye to foot-dragging by the authorities or only partial implementation of the conditions. The IMF has asked for besides because it doesn't want to create instability and cause trouble. And you're right. That does create. Inevitable physical game between the two sides. And we'll see how that plays out again with this latest land Buxton? Thank you very much Simon. Thank you very much. My pleasure.

It might have been another routine encounter as they're sometimes called police shooting and. Killing apparent suspects later described as criminals there was one week ago in Pakistan where police killed three adults and a twelve year old girl in a car. But this one was different this time. It ended with police officers themselves under arrest facing charges of murder. Why? Well, passersby had filled the instant and share images showing the what police had said couldn't possibly be true and even more powerfully the testimony from hospital of a nine year old survivor. Omar Khalil kindle commodity in Lombard, Toby more. He was interviewed shortly after the incident had taken place by local Pakistan journalists, and he said, no one in the Colorado opened fire that they were on their way to a family wedding. And then police had stopped them. And that's when this firing had taken place because the police had just according to this child opened fire on them with no real reason. So what was the initial response from the authorities to the law? Little boys story, and they actually the regional government seem to be suggesting that the inhabitants of this call were indeed suspected terrorists. But quickly as pressure begun to mount on them, and this really took off online, particularly on Twitter and Facebook, they came under pressure to look into that a bit more. And after that quite quickly, the prime minister Imran Khan took to Twitter himself to say that if there had been any wrongdoing, then that would be thoroughly investigated, and whilst counterterrorism police inbox on had done a great job in the past of keeping people safe that no one was above the law, and everyone would be held accountable. Now that phrase you used no one is about the law is very important Disney in the context of of how the counter terrorism police are perceived to have behaved in some cases in Pakistan. Absolutely. And it's not just counterterrorism police. But all police forces really in Buxton often have the reputation of considering themselves above the law in particular.
Chinese Presence in Pakistan Is Targeted in Strike on Consulate in Karachi
"In Karachi three tacos storm, the local Chinese consulate killing four people including two police officers before being killed themselves and before they could detonate their primary weapon econ Laden with explosives for more on this. I'm joined by Aisha Deka military, scientists offer and research associate at so as I should first of all the attack itself on the Chinese consulate in Karachi, it's been claimed by the Balochistan Liberation Army. Basically who are they in what they want? The Balochistan national liberation on me is a nationalist below ch- nationalist movement, their ethnic movement a want independence from Pakistan. But what is very cute cute is that. Earlier on in the past Balochistan Liberation Army or any army associate with the below schmooze Flint has never had the capacity to strike inside of an centers and astrategically aside, as for example, the Chinese consulate says very very strange, and it's a cross border attack as well. It's not within Balochistan. Yes. It's not within Balochistan earlier. What we've seen is that be LA or other armies of the movement would strike say petty workers, laborers working for the army all blow up a pipeline going through Balochistan having their years ago. This is like four five years ago. There was a blast in Islamabad, which was the extra beauty to be LA. But you know, everybody knew wasn't the LA. Be LA didn't have the capacity. I still don't think it has the capacity, but what is being claimed is on behalf of LA. This was on its own merits at least clearly an extremely ambitious attack. I mean, this is a a high profile and presumably will secured target, which they clearly intended to do serious damage if this was the Balochistan the beret army, and as you correctly point out, there's some doubts as to whether they're claiming to whether it's being claimed on their behalf by other actors, but why would the Chinese consulate of Bena target fastly because there is the China puck sonic comic corridor, which passes through Balochistan. There is development work and guava, which is a portent of very strategic port very strategic location in Balochistan. It's a deep sea fishing pole, which would give China the ability to kind of a be part of the Rabian, see. Says very strategic and what the Balaj ethnic Ballade say is that well, a strategic mood shift has been made a strategic decision has been made regarding the province without taking them into account. And they do not want to be part of Pakistan. I still don't think I mean, I'm doubtful that there are several claims. There's a Pakistani claim that the Balaj themselves are being funded by by Indians in intelligence agency in of gone intelligence agency, they could be others as well. And what the Chinese have been saying so long is allow us allow the Chinese to come bring their own force into Parkistan the security forces to defend and secure anything. Why there is Chinese investment or Chinese presence? So it could be anyone really. But it doesn't look like. The work of be LA because be LA has limited capacity is much not just in Balochistan, but in Pakistan as whole is the much resentment or suspicion of China's increasing influence in Buxton. In Balochistan, the issues being raised bought generally the state, and the people are generally, you know, excited about money coming in. I mean through the China Pakistan economic corridor. China plans to invest sixty one billion dollars into Pakistan and has so far invested about twenty six billion dollars. They were stopped after the last government lost in elections. And there is a new government in the new government destroying to reach out to the Giannis. But there are other problems, for example, IMF has raised issues with how CPAC known as coming into into parka sawn, and they're saying that box on will get into debt trap China. And so when box current prime minister went to China, very recently, he was met very warmly, but not giving any money Buxton. Badly needs money. So it was a smile. Good vicious press.
