"cameron government" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"There is a feeling for Hong kongers at least that leaving China is something that perhaps needs to be done if you want to sort of live a free and unencumbered life. But also that the United Kingdom is a safe haven for you. It's how much does that still does that still hold? Well, the United Kingdom, the funny place, isn't it? I mean, we've seen that Russia has felt empowered over the years to come in and go deal with its domestic agenda sometimes with a dissident where people out of favor here. And now it appears that China also has that feeling. It's a scary thought. I think in general, of course, if you stay away from the embassy grounds or the constantly grounds, you would be, I can't imagine that China would go and actually wreak valence on people in the streets, but I would think that Chinese students or Hong Kong students at UK universities should be careful of what they write, maybe be careful of what protests they join in because I'm sure it will be noted. And if and when they ever go back, I could count against them. In fact, that's been backed up by Nathan law, the Hong Kong pro democracy protester. He's been detained. He's been put in prison in Hong Kong. He's now in the United Kingdom, and he's written in the last couple of days. I can't help but imagine what would happen if I was taken to a Chinese embassy. Would I obtain de detained in the small black blackout room? Extradited to Mainland China and have forced confession on state television. The fact is, is that Hong Kong is a prominent Hong Kong protester is now fearing for his safety, were he to tread on Chinese ambassador and ambassadorial soil. What can the British do about it? Can they? Because behind closed doors, it's someone else's country. Yes, and Britain's in a funny place at the moment, as you know, Liz truss came into her job with a very strong anti China stance, but now the government needs money badly and I wouldn't assume it's also needs trade. So I wonder how they're going to square that circle. It was only in 2015 that David Cameron government held a golden age and UK China relations and so I said that China would be Britain's best friend and Britain would be China's best friend in the west. Clearly that's not the case now. It can't be the case now if it has happened in Hong Kong after what happened on Sunday after the U.S. took the lead and painting China in a very, very negative light. All of the west is moving away from China, mostly because of what China under Xi Jinping itself has done. So it's no longer a golden age. The question is, will it turn completely black or will the current government, whether it's Liz truss or somebody else, have to find some way of squaring a circle to try to keep on having economic relations economic gains while still trying to find an effective way of showing its displeasure at what happened on Sunday? And meanwhile, back to Sunday, what do you think is going to happen to the consul general? Well, in any in any normal country, with a normal functioning government, he would be declared principal non grata and put on the next plane out. But Britain at the moment has a lot on its plate and the government has a lot of things to decide and discuss. So I'm not sure if that'll happen. But clearly, in my view, that should happen, that must happen. You can not actually have a consult general assault someone on the streets of Manchester and get away with it. So in a normal functioning nation, he'd be put on the next plane out, whether that will happen or not. I think is up in the air like so many of the difficult decisions that the UK government is taking right now. David schlesinger, thank you. As ever for joining us on monocle 24, with the globalist.

"This week we said farewell to the queen. Her funeral, the culmination of days of coverage across the British media that was both moving and magnificent. The new culture secretary called the BBC's efforts phenomenal and spot on, and commentators not usually known for their support, deemed what the corporation did a triumph. For almost two weeks Britain paused and reflected on 70 years of service, many of you would have found that completely appropriate that the media got the tone right. Others may have felt your views perhaps weren't being represented. Today we're asking amidst the pageantry and commentary was their room for journalism. I'm joined by Marcus Ryder, whose head of external consultancies at the Lenny Henry center for media diversity, baroness stole, whose conservative chair of the House of lords communications and digital select committee, lord vasi, a former culture secretary who was in the David Cameron government at the time of the 2012 Olympics.

"In London had a fire breakout in one of the flats. Emergency services expected the blaze to be contained by the structure's concrete. But the flames traveled up and across the side of the building. If this sounds eerily familiar, that's because the fire spread rapidly, thanks to the cladding. Just like at grenfell, 6 people died in the 2009 blaze, including three children. The public cried out for a full inquest, consequently, the government conducted a ten week inquiry into the tragedy. Through their investigation, they found that the council in charge of the apartments never carried out a proper safety inspection. And like that at grenfell tower 8 years later, the fire brigade also advised some of the victims to remain in their flats. Still, even after the findings, the British government failed to pass new regulations, they didn't order higher safety ratings for exterior walls or demand that material be flame resistant. Plus, they didn't reconsider the efficacy of the stay put policy. Against all odds, regulations were then peeled back even further. In 2012, prime minister David Cameron's government introduced the one in two out rule, it stated that for every one pound a new regulation cost a company, the government had to find two pounds of savings. Cameron hoped this new guidance would deregulate business specifically when it came to health and safety. According to some estimates, the new measures cut regulations by 90%. While officials saw the steps as fuel for the economy, others believe the government's thriftiness was a direct risk to the people it served. Much like the contractors and it appeared that the administration valued profit over livelihood and the cuts had a real impact on the people at grenfell tower. Landlords were not legally required to install sprinkler systems in their buildings. Only tall structures erected after 2007 required the extra safety measure. However, even after multiple fires and repeated warnings, the government still didn't make the sprinklers mandatory for older buildings. In 2014, the housing minister shrugged off calls for sprinkler regulations, citing the high cost. He also reasoned the fire department should be in charge of marketing and implementing the safety measure, not the government. Regardless of whose responsibility it was to mandate sprinkler systems, grenfell tower didn't have them. A 2015 inside housing investigation discovered that out of the nearly 3000 social housing complexes in England, just 18 had sprinklers installed. Perhaps David Cameron strict stance on regulations made it impossible to institute additional precautions, or maybe officials simply didn't want to do it because it cost more time and money. In.

"Well, I don't actually want the neon back because I donated it to the government art collection. And what people have to understand is, you know, if keir star moves to become prime minister next week and he liked my neon, it still hang in there that when you give a watch of the government arts collection has work of yours, it's for any government. It's for time in memorial. They hang it in embassy schools, hospitals all over the place. So I don't want the work back because I donated it. I would simply like at the moment for it to be taken down. Because a neon is notoriously like for a party atmosphere, you have to mean fun fairs, casinos, bars, or whatever. And I really do not feel that number ten needs any encouragement on this level. So removed from display with the news that's going on around the parties. Yeah, not just that. It's just like their behavior is pretty shameful. I just, you know, people are really genuinely upset about this. And it's not about a political thing. It's about it's a moral ethical thing. People had to watch loved ones be buried on their telephone, right? Or be cremated on their telephone. They went to their husbands, their wives, their mothers, their brothers. Their love is funeral by watching it on a telephone. The queen went to her husband's funeral and sat there stoically alone while they were having a party. It makes no sense. It's just so disrespectful. There is a lot of anger and the prime minister last week talked about the party. Also apologized with regards to that anger, but has then gone on to talk about not being sure that rules were being broken and everybody's talking about waiting for this one woman Sue gray, the civil to give back this report and report her findings were expecting that next week. I suppose the question I had for you is if you say you feel you just don't want this hanging there. Do you have that sort of control? Are you able to make that request? And also, I know for a fact that Boris Johnson likes it hang in there. Do you know that? Because he told me. Right. So, you know, and also the reason why my work is hung in there is because when you have a new prime minister, prime minister chooses work from the government arts collection. David Cameron chose a piece of my work, but there wasn't he wanted a neon there wasn't one. So I donated one to the government arts collection and it's hanging in 10 Downing Street and I have to be honest. I'm quite proud of that because dignities all kinds of people go to ten demonstrate. And at the time, I thought, wow, it's making Britain look cool and, you know, on a different level, with terms of contemporary art, David Cameron's government had a very different attitude towards art and contemporary art to what this government does. This government actually doesn't think that art should be in schools. Doesn't think that art should be on the school curriculum, doesn't value art, doesn't value culture. And by me saying this aren't just proving how important art and culture is. So I've got my own gender here as well. So that basis for what you've just said about this government, not valuing art is based on because we're going off slightly into a different direction..

So that basis for what you've just said about this government, not valuing art is based on we're going off slightly into a different direction. What was that based on? Well, art makes people feel good. Especially in times what during the lockdowns, all the museums closed. Every aspect of culture was shut down. Art was compared to night at museum for compared to nightclubs. So when you say this government's not valuing it, you're talking about how the lockdown affected those institutions. Yeah, and how it affected people mentally as well to perhaps culture and art taken away from them. Art is really important within terms of society and always has been. So it's time in memorial. And you posted this, as I mentioned on your Instagram and your in a position to make your voice heard we're grateful to hear it today on woman's at, but are you able to make this request to the prime minister?.

"Of a factor I suppose in the past under Cameron to these things were not clearly defined then Has the party got a clear direction Does it work Well I think it is a bit of a struggle because on the one hand you've got the sole of the Conservative Party remains effectively Margaret Thatcher divided Defined it It's a party that believes in low taxes that people should be free to spend as much of the money that they earn as possible without government interference And government taking not exactly a backseat but not interfering with government is not needed And part of that agenda driven home I think by Liz trust now the foreign section one of the most popular members of the cabinet has been this idea of global Britain doing trade deals all over the world from Singapore and Australia and so on and so forth and pivoting in a way to Asia as a result of Brexit So you've got that kind of free trade low tax elementary party Then you've got the big spending Tories You've got the new toys in the north who want money spent in their constituencies And you've also got what I would call loosely perhaps the protectionist Tories You know one of the problems we've got with the lorry driver shortage we have in the UK the Brexit Tories many of whom are obviously in government including the Home Secretary pretty Patel Do not want a return to free movement which you would think would accompany thinking about free trade They don't want to return to free movement of workers by the back door So they for example have grudgingly allowed 5000 visas for lorry drivers but they're not about to say we're going to open our borders to foreign workers to fill the massive shortages in key occupations that we're beginning to see emerged partly because of COVID partly because of Brexit So there is again this tension And it is attention I mean to get not to get too philosophical it's a tension that's driven the Tory party since the 19th century between the free traders and the protectionists So that is the contradiction that they're going to have to try and work out Yeah that's a fascinating way of putting it I mean it's fair to say is it that you were not a fan of Boris Johnson in 2019 He had the wit remove for a while Is there anything he's done that as one year round since then Well I've always liked Boris Johnson I've known him for a very long time and I massively admire his political qualities I think he was a brilliant mayor of London and he's got he is without doubt the most charismatic and effective politician in British politics today And it's a very interesting scenario at the moment where problem upon problem is piling up but it doesn't in my view seem to affect the public's view of Boris Johnson I think broadly speaking they like him they think he's authentic they think he's got a pretty chaotic life And if you've got a pretty careful like you can empathize with that So it does have this ability to connect with the public which he hasn't lost yet I fell out with him on a specific issue which cost me the width but we've got back together again And I think if anyone has a chance to articulate a vision and don't forget he's got this optimism which always comes through And he will tickle the Tory party's tummy at the party conference So his speech I can guarantee you will go down brilliantly It's extraordinary image tickling the Tom it's all about I have to say I'm not one perhaps at breakfast time Let me ask you and then what about the liberal wing of the party Because in a sense you were part of that EU David gork Nicholas soames Anyone can list the casualties really Has the liberal wing of the party been effectively wiped out I think the liberal wing of the party is definitely pretty dormant at the moment I mean we've had these culture wars prosecuted by conservative ministers laws put in to protect statues and fights picked about free speech and I certainly think that it is still a government that prizes ideological purity as in Iowa sound Brexit here Do you believe in this government agenda as opposed to a plethora of different voices but again these elements to Tory party never quite go away It is more perhaps more subtle than I indicated that there will be little elements even Boris Johnson who has strong liberal tendencies which perhaps he's hidden in the last few years but he certainly displayed when he was mayor of London But they are definitely on the back foot at the moment Okay Interesting we shall see what happens with the Conservative Party conference Thank you so much for being with us Ed vasey conservative peer lord raisi former culture minister in David Cameron's government giving us well a very interesting view of all the contradictions and the difficulties that the Conservative Party faces yes we've had the vaccine success but the winter looks so tough Yeah well we'll talk about more of that tickling of that indeed is what's going on with the Tory party When we

"Does purchase. How figure in the humphry enough of bad. Aim secretaries kuchis is she all. She all worse civil liberties. It's hard. I think you would burn a by the way theresa may probably would have been the way if you could have had her way but unluckily for her and luckily for us she was there in that sweet spot of live dan tory coalition where they needed to do the things they claim to criticize about the labor body before them. So that sort of saved us on this front not on immigration but it did on so many civil liberties issues. I'm i think. New labor was new. Labor was like a full spectrum attack ready and you look at people like blunkett evens with jack story before the september eleventh attacks. You know th there is a slice of modern torey opinion that likes to pride itself liberties. That's essentially i think a a very mild pick 'em reductionist and exclusive sense of civil liberties which is really simple for like us right if you're someone that they can't imagine what life is like then you can go get fucked if you're testy you can go get fucked however the for things like habeas corpus and identity cards there is that david davis strain in the conservative party and that protects that i think from getting quite as bad at the moment as it was on a new labor however undoing lots of however is now problem and the distinction now is that it's embedded in the coach wall right so there's an attack on institutions which simply did not exist under the new labor period and does now and there's also really divisive attempt that unit pretty patel baddie bothered to conceal that she was targeting specific protesters with what she was doing which is particularly dangerous when you think about the fact that discretionary power that you handing to the police. Because you've got the hamster parliament's hang. I'm looking and i'm looking at extinction agenda since you're rebellion. You know this. These are the guys that are essentially. I want you to go for so on that basis. it's sort of. it's less comprehensive. I think than the assault on civil liberties was happening on labor. But it's more sort of toxic and more dangerous because it's part of that culture war attack on the institutions on individual groups just briefly going back to the election spell that bill hands a lot more power to Michael gov is sexual states. It's not really a health thing per se. But there are of course remiss. He maybe advantage even sexually position any views. Now do you think there's any credibility behind their dreams. I can tell you whether that's with adds up. I mean at the moment. I haven't heard anything that would suggest that is complete nonsense during the thing. That's just that has any real substance behind it. I'm brushing was the birth johnson's pretty much pretty happy with what pretty potatoes during that kind of cross. Apparently so we're told for not bringing the numbers down. Further onto the migrant. Arrive was the summer. I don't really see that means. She's posturing precisely the way that he would one. It would seem odd if that was the flip that happened right now. I mean frankly. I got to tell you out fucking take it by the was of course. Yeah yeah you would come back years. He's not a stretch wishes now gracie the home office is running series of long-haul mass deportation flights to various locations including zimbabwe nigeria jamaica. Some of the people in these rights arrived in the uk in a very tender young ages and really only know life here in the uk. Are we witnessing another wind rush. Well i mean. I sort of feel name. Anyone have moved to say about this. But i like the fast when roche channel is an even ever So it's win or even our another wind rush in the window. Standard is still happening. People are still in compensation on their descendants are still vulnerable to deportation and other violations of devine's. I'm i mean. I think why. I understand why. This conversation focuses in particular on people who've lived in the uk for very long time. I think we should be questioning. The idea of hutu matic deportation post conviction for anybody. Whatever you eat on the criminal punishment system the point as in day somebody to victims themselves sentence announced the end of that so i think when we know that the wet however somebody's being in the country when we know that the impact Disproportionately racialist on cost. I think quite a list. I think you should be thinking about. Actually whether mandatory deportation provision should implants for anyone many gracie mentioned that j. c. w. i i'm sure they are missile. Absolutely i mean i agree absolutely what gracie just said then. I mean. we've been quite lucky with these last few flights that we haven't had any clients on but jc. W i in general completely opposes these kinds of deportations. They're really cruel. They happen in the middle of the night. They tap people from their families. They've often sometimes have been out of prison for absolutely years and have just had this threat of deportation held over their heads. The reason that we're seeing this kind of speeding up deportations over summer is obviously because the government has the asylum. Bill coming back in september so twofold. They're trying to kind of rally up support for that terrible proposals. That will come back. In hopefully in september committee stage and also because the foundation of that bill is these third-country agreements deals with other countries to take people from the uk who supposedly don't belong here now. Some of those deals we think of being secretly agreed. So this imbaba dale. Zimbabwe previously didn't actually accept removals. Which is why. We're seeing some zimbabwe flights now because we think that the government has some kind of deal with zimbabwe of meant to suddenly accept these deportation flights and again some of the rationale behind that is really tied into international development and foreign aid because they've reduced the budget so they kind of using foreign aid as a threat to be held over international countries. You know basically take the people that we don't want and we'll give you a bit more money for it saying there's a limited supply in. Let's talk about this Government panel reviewing the human rights. And of course we've we've seen dominant cummings getting frothing theory about it on to turn his logo last couple of weeks as well. Brexit's is loathe the european court of human rights in particular and never seem to tire of bashing human rights. In general. what's go. What else do we need to sort of. Get out of the whole thing. Essentially sort of brexit mock to right And in fact if you remember under the david cameron government before brexit. That was sort of an attempt to sort of prevent. Its rulings from being sort of of being advisory in in british law. It's important to create the distinction between the things that we're talking about because the european convention of human rights is based with the council in the country europe as completely separate to the eu. It's also distinct away from the human rights. Act which a before you can take your case to strasbourg under the human rights at boston navy. You can do it in the uk. England welsh whatever his the thing they've already launched an attack before brexit those to try to make it advisory but then brexit happened and it was fucking we hit brexit in counter intuitive.

"Out a pension building out their savings and also leaving a legacy. So I helped them through proper investment to do that. And that's why I started a business. Brilliant thanks for that. It's actually a really big thing isn't it? Because when you think about property investment typically you think about men doing it. Historically anyway and it shouldn't be that way because actually it shouldn't make any difference. So that's really good. And just to say to everyone listening everything we're talking about it's not just relevant to women. This is relevant to everyone. So let's jump into the questions then. So first of all what should investors expect from the market going forward? Well basically there's an increase. In commercial properties being vacant. Because of obviously we've gone over nearly 18 month period of the COVID-19. So there's a lot of vacancies in commercial space. And while the housing market is set to remain strong there's this are a significant doubt about the commercial real estate due to uncertainty and various industries like your restaurants or your hospitality sectors. So many of these businesses have been forced to close which has led to vacant buildings being up for sale. And then more shoppers are buying online. So therefore it's you know opening up the door again for commercial buildings coming on. The market. So going forward I believe that the commercial space is more. Going to be more prominent for people now going into the investment space and going from converting commercial units to residential units because there's been a law that was changed last year October. PD writes permitted development to get into the commercial space so you can convert a commercial into residential which is a welcome change in the law because that hasn't been changed in a long time. So yeah I think that the shift is going to go into the commercial space now. Okay brilliant. It is something that's been made easier and easier isn't it? That ship from commercial committed to residential. I know it happened with Cameron's government about ten years ago more than ten years ago now. And then we're starting to see that a bit more. Okay that's really interesting view. Okay so do you see investors change in the way that they invest in the future? As opposed to how they're investing now are supposed typically. I think investors will be more inclined to go into the commercial space due to the fact that it's very turns. There is plenty of stock coming on into the market as well. And it's easier to manage. Long-term men will. Also people getting into the investment space for long term rental returns. The best property for investors is income multiple homes. In my opinion real estate they're both best to grow wealth mobile homes to touch single homes. And new developments as well because there's a lot of new developments on the market as well which I think a lot of people are going into and investing so that I think that's the future uptake and service accommodation. Because we're doing a lot of staycations at home now. So therefore it's allowing us to now as investors to look at how can we then best utilize our investment portfolio for people that want to do staycations and that's sort of buying properties up in Ireland Scotland wells places where destination people go to and stay. Okay. So my next question was going to be what just the investors focusing on so if remote working continues will transport link be as important in which case. So at the moment typically people would invest they'd look at transport links and want to invest close to where that train station is for example. But if people I know we are seeing a bit of return to the office and some people haven't stopped but a lot of people are still working from home and a lot of companies are reevaluating whether they're going to continue with remote working or a hybrid model. If hypothetically remote working continued for the foreseeable do you think investors would perhaps move away from the transport links or do you think that that is still a really really important part? To be quite it's in the news and every day in the one of the things that actually surprised me was so much the transport links now is actually Internet connection. So when people are looking at to move they're looking at in that space is they're good Internet connection because obviously because we've gone through this whole transition and learn a lot about working from home. Commuting isn't one of the hot topics now it is really about is there good Internet connection where I'm moving too? And I found out quite surprising because you would think hotspots will be I'm not diluting that you need transportation but the Internet connection was the number one thing that people were more looking for rather than transport links. Yeah. It's really interesting isn't it? And I think also once you get used to say having a fast Internet connection even if you do want to move back into city well that's assuming if you moved away from the city if you wanted to move back there you'd still expect that or wherever you moved you'd still expect that you wouldn't go backwards would you? Okay. Let's look at the length of time then that an investor would hold an asset for so it's going a little bit away from what we should be focusing on. But we always talk about long-term having a long-term view for our investors and more so as a property market goes on. Do you think short term flipping will die out? Because I know that is that's a way of investing for some people but my point of view person is it's getting harder to do. Do you think it will die out? Do you think there's still room in the market for it? I think for a season investor that's looking to generate passive income. They will hold on to an asset much longer now and perhaps building generational wealth people are holding onto assets longer now. But landlords are also considering investing and refinancing because of the low interest rates. So yeah it's still. The investment market is really opened. And only because of the interest rates becoming low. Do I think flipping will die out? Again this is dependent on the type of properties that you're flipping if it's commercial to residential then this stock is that is in need that we're seeing on the market. I don't think it would die out and it's about strategically planning. Yeah. So I mean I flip properties continuously and even in this current market but it's looking at the type of properties that I'm doing that with. So if I'm doing a commercial unit and I'm changing that into park commercial residential then obviously I'm holding on to the commercial probably renting that out and then selling off the residential side. And that is a part in way of flipping a property. South I don't think it will diet. You need to be more strategic when you're looking to do any flips now and making sure you're still achieving your discounts and your percentage of return on investment that you set out to do. Yeah and I suppose it also depends on whether you've got the capacity to put the work in for that sort of strategy. Okay. Following lockdown we've let's look at new investors. Following lockdown there's more people apparently with accidental savings because people have obviously haven't been able to go out as much. Do you think this will translate into more investors looking to maximize the money they've already earned? Do you think we might see some new investors or because I know we have seen the property market you know the prices have shot up at the same time. So are we.

That should be able to bring some of those whiting town but despite the fact we do have this idea that nhs which is the point of use and for a soul. It's not always there for people who are using drugs now. I think that one of the problems is the cameron. Government basically took Drunk civis provision out of the nato hasn't put into social care and and i think that was a cynical ploy to reduce funding. But i don't know would you agree with me. I'm not so sure that the funding stretches the replace full will affect the Orlando full with the problem that we had. I think there's a lot more in terms of the system is working well. No then just cameron's cynicism. I think we need to have a comprehensive review of how is provided to people use drugs for example we have. We've moved away in england from the principles of hamburg gumption with exactly the same problems in trying to setup site for drug consumption rooms that we've seen in america and the principal.

That are how many there are. Twenty million in oregon could actually put for health as the reason for voting for such a remarkable change in policy. I mean that's extremely exciting to me. And i mean it could i suppose it's also pits of is is the fact that the state approaches allowed metro. Rational approach to cannabis. Now you having a two hundred million. Americans having access to medical cannabis in one hundred million having exit recreational cannabis in britain a politician. Still say it's far too dangerous and doctors are doctors.

He's going to win a very substantial parliamentary majority. Because that would take away. Let's call it the english question aspect of the need as standard. I think we're gonna come onto a question about why how things might change for labor to win a majority of the seats.

The polls are tightening nightly scott on maybe an opportunity to win the conservatives a principle they could make the response that they didn't two thousand fifteen and throw the specter of allied party that can only govern in england with smp of support. These things they make it very difficult for the party under any leader to win a man of the out on top of that because the question does ask about kiss. Dhamma is that kissed on has just proved pretty ineffective as a political leader saif. Aw it doesn't look like his qualities are well suited to the leadership of a political party in contemporary british politics. And the fred. I agree i mean i think if you start from the other end and say we'll kind of government to be talking about. I think a labour majority nothing is impossible. But it's as close to impossible on the current conditions as you can get. It's really hot. See wins the majority because of scotland but not just because golden so the question is what form of government is this a coalition kurdish with whom but the smp. Maybe we'll come onto that identity. How that works. So we're talking about probably a minority labour government if the labor party doesn't even have to win more seats with labour party wins would deprive the conservatives of enough seats that it's hard for the conservatives to govern. Stomma will take his chance however he can. No one's going to be squeamish at this point might be the weakest government in modern british history. But you'll give it a go so it probably talking about the minority government. Depending upon the support of the party's nationalist parties. Liberal democrats may be as we were talking about even greens. That's a pretty unappealing prospect for most voters. i think you might be flushing with abandoning the conservatives. And then you get back to that question which is the thing that galvanizes conservative devices is the possibly not so much of a labour majority but of this kind of mishmash from government labor party beholden to other parties to think. It's incredibly difficult. It's not. I think majority is pretty much impossible. I think a minority labor government under dhamma is not impossible. But it's difficult. I do think the labor party has a problem at the most basic level. Something beats nothing in. Politics is really easy to say. What the tory stand. For the moment. I was having this argument with someone. A north london remain on. Put it like that saying well. The problem is it's really easy to some of what the conservative steinfeld info leveling up. They stand for not giving in on what they think covers the culture wars. They stand for a certain kind of sort of techno driven innovative green politics. They stand for making a success of brexit. However you understand that on the past house talking to you said yeah. But they didn't mean any of those things and johnson doesn't mean it he's a liar is inconsistent. It doesn't matter doesn't matter much better to stand for something that you don't mean than to mean things that you'd einstein full and stomas problem is he's the second host so the next question is what does the government's flighting of ending the english votes for english. Laws suggest about the conservatives view of the union. he's interested your. It was a very striking story that came out. I think last week in the times suggesting that the michael guy had drawn up proposals for ending this practice that was introduced after the two thousand fifteen election by the cameron government. Where right at the end at least that. They had to be parliamentary majority of english and pays many by that impedes for english constitiencies for a low the tiny england to passan that some complications around that because it was the speaker to decide when the provisions of bill would only apply in england in a way i thought the most interesting thing about the story was the fact that they quotation that was used in the in. The time story said that guy had presented this as wanting to be fair to all parts of the union and to all parties. At the implication is which is kind of true but it's a bit an thing for conservative cabinet. Minister desai's is that the things needs to be fair for the labor party and this gets to the heart of the issue that we were just discussing in the the previous question of the difficulties that labor face in trying to win a majority of english seats in order such that they would be able to govern within the votes for english laws govern england. I should say english rights for english. Laws in place are absolutely incredible. I think the way the you might say that this wouldn't do anything to help. Situation presumably the motivation here is to say that which does make sense. Is that in order for the union to be stabilized in the medium to long term. It has to be possible for some party the conservatives to govern westminster leaving if you take english votes for initials away. That doesn't change the attitudes of english voters or enough in writers who can still do the thing that they did in two thousand fifteen which is decide. I faced with the prospect of labor in the snp governing. Saying we want not. We're going gonna have to vote conservative. Stop back from having you might. Indeed cited actually taking away. What might be considered. As a safeguard of english fights for english laws which effectively stops the a coalition of the labour and the smp being able to pass laws for england might actually only strengthened the desire of those voters to ensure that that possibility khandaker supposed to the back of this question is is something that relates to you what we were just talking about. Which is how would it work for labor government to govern without an overall majority and without the majority of english seats in some kind of combination with the smp so that the initial barrier which is the voters have to swallow it and they might not say they did. The tactics are twenty fifteen. Didn't work and then people weren't quite as frightened as they were back. then of ed milliband in conjunction with the smp. So however comes about you get a kissed alma premiership again. Nothing is impossible but as close to impossible. I think is a formal coalition. I just cannot see how that would work labor. Snb coalition on the lines of the lib-dem conservative coalition. So we're talking about an informal arrangement. I suppose something closer to that. None of the parties would want us to be the example theresa. May's conservative government in the dp but arrangement that involves a series of trade offs around getting certain kinds of legislation through in return for other legislative opportunities. And it seems that under those conditions and it could happen. You get enough. Lay 'em piece in the house of commons stomach can govern by trying to get legislation through through series of formal informal arrangements with other parties it would produce constitutional chaos bought a need for very serious constitutional rethinking.

Trump's intelligence chief warns China is the greatest threat to US since WWII

"Outgoing us administration of president. Donald trump has thus far extended few of the traditional courtesies to the incoming administration of president elect joe biden. There has been no two of the white house no sporting photo op in the rose. Garden and little of the handover briefings from one group of officials to the next however director of national intelligence. John ratcliffe whether trying to help or hinder has passed along. His top worth to the next president in a wall street journal op-ed he has warned. President elect biden that china poses the greatest threat to america today and to worldwide democracy since world war two on joined with more on this point. Isabel hilton ceo at china dialogue. Isabel is the director of national intelligence entirely wrong here. We never entirely wrong but they do manage to you. Make a really terrible case turn radcliffe. I would remind you is director of national intelligence by skin of his teeth. When he was first nominated there was such a sort of howl of protest is lack of qualifications and the fact that he had falsified his own resume that that that trump at one point had to withdraw nomination before trying again. So you know as a kind of bond with the distinguished record nuanced analysis. I would you know maybe take it with a pinch of salt. That said clearly that the you know that china is a major challenge to democratic values of the united states. is meant to defend this. After a couple of problems with this framing one. It is clearly designed to To constrain at the incoming administration that is trying to take very different approach to foreign policy and the outgoing administration is trying to narrow the ground so saying that china is the greatest threat to freedom. Well you know okay It is true that china has indulged in ip theft. Absolutely true surprise just as the united states by the way did against the uk in the twentieth century. is it that may be ongoing espionage. Certainly and china certainly has nationalist ambitions. It certainly trying to bend the global rules to serve its own interest that is what big powers do including the united states. So the problem is is not the diagnosis. If you like. It's the reverend is that the trump administration has offered over the last four years which have simply made it easier for china to advance. Its case so the i think dangers here. One is the exaggeration of china's powers. And that's something we saw with the soviet union towards the end of the cold war. That if you have security agencies whose prosperity depends on building a threat they will big up a threat and so right to the moment when the soviet union collapsed we were hearing from. Us intelligence and security agencies that the world was about to be overwhelmed by soviet communism. And there's a bit of the same syndrome going on here but the second problem is the complete ineptitude of the trump administration encountering the chinese efforts to do that you have to build alliances not destroy them. And you have to make sure that your own offer has credibility. Most people prefer living a well-functioning democracy with personal freedoms trump has not been the best advert for that. At least for the trump's the united states is not the finest moment for democracy. And so you know yes. Of course there is a challenge here to challenge values challenge a political system but the way to country is with the integrity of our own political systems including that of the united states red cliff talks of china operating an influence campaign inside the united states. And on the one hand. That's a somewhat fatuous statement because everybody operates influence campaign inside the united states and indeed in pretty much every other country but is there anything especially sinister or dangerous about what china is doing. Ratcliffe also talks of them targeting members of congress. Well again no surprise. China has has done this an onion eternal lays it all out if you look at anything to do with the united front work department. Which is that bit of the party which has always existed which is intended to manage relations with non party elements. It used to be largely working within china building relationships or or not with religious authorities or with business. People are not in the communist party. Now that china's going global so has the united front work department and it has teamed up with a with the entity in the party that used to manage overseas chinese affairs so and it has put an enormous amount of money into this since the beijing olympics which was regarded as a pr disaster for china in so many ways Would've been the results. Well according to the pew survey in the last month china's reputation has never been lower so yes. China is putting great efforts into influence building and so far. They've been a terrible flop now. There is an element of this which is elite capture. Which again was going pretty. Well i think certainly in the uk for example in an example of elite capture would be the approach of the cameron government to china which you know proclamations of the golden decade. And so on. That's her you know very much again. If you look at elite attitude to china largely because of china's overreach there has been a big backlash everywhere from australia to the united states to europe. You hear the same message. so yes. they're making an effort but is it working. No it's not just one final thought and it's it's a concern that ratcliff doesn't raise for obvious reasons but is there any kind of danger of between now and january twentieth china just thinking there's nobody watching the shop if we're ever going to try and pull something big when never gonna get another chance like this. Well of course the big worry. I mean you might say. Hong kong was that the big warriors taiwan. And there's been a lot of jostling as you know in taiwan. I guess another option is the is the india china border again. We've seen quite a lot of live action there this year. My personal views. That taiwan is a step too far think china has a really a realistic understanding of what it would take not only to take taiwan but then to make that occupation work. And this you know. There are plenty of warnings about how difficult that is. And is this the moment to risk so much in pursuit of that. Of course the regime wants to recapture taiwa are how reunite or however they care to phrase it. But i think we've pretty much got twenty forty nine before that becomes acute in their many other Things that many other things that can be done to make taiwan life difficult short of a military assault isabel hilton front.

"Boris johnson has always been keen to burn it his green credentials and put tackling climate. Change at the front of his government's. Agenda is done so again this week setting out a long-awaited plan to make the uk a world leader in green technology as with most government announcements. However that will plenty of spending commitments already made being re announced but the most auden criticism came from the tories who said it goes against. The party's new electoral base and could cost them votes but business secretary. Alex chama rejected this notion. This is about leveling up across our country. We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money. Other money is money that's been pledged previously on deed lost budget in in in march Book very importantly This billion pounds will help to bring in three times as much in terms of private sector money and supporting create two hundred and fifty thousand jobs but the have been some critics of this plan arguing that it really doesn't go far enough. The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry.

What were your thoughts. When you saw this announcement here because johnson has talked a lot about green policy arisons locked summer but it fuses if that rhetoric has increase as jim said that is new money on some new policies to go with it to there is a but by i know about this was a. It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty. It's really not on track to do that. Unfortunately the classic example about chocolate changing which is provided uncertainty from best is if you look at one of the atoms.

Is you know god. We've got to do something on climate. Okay what do we do on electric cars. Oh i know will bring the target ford. That's actually relatively easy to do. It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that. The u k plan does look a little small were jim. This is one thing critics of picked up on the plan. Even who is labour's shadow. Business secretary has said it doesn't remotely meet the scale of what is needed. I think greenpeace charity have said similar things to all those criticisms fad.
