"So it's a bit of a Pandora's box that's been opened and particularly as Swiss universities receive. I was looking into this substantial amount of money from Chinese companies. So for instance, since 2016, the ETH foundation alone received CHF 12 million in non earmarked gifts from Chinese companies including Huawei, Alibaba and wami. So it's a big story and it's not really going to be going away anytime soon, Chris, there's a lot there. Really interesting story. And interesting as well that at Davos, the NATO secretary secretary general, particularly I was struck by in Stoltenberg speaking about how we now have to factor security so much more into all the other things that the west does, whether it is economics and trade or as you're talking about their science and collaborations factoring factoring security. Into that. Let's move on to one other staying with China, essentially. But cardinal Joseph zen, we had reported on this story, I believe last week, if I remember, he has been appearing in court in Hong Kong. Yeah, so the 90 year old former bishop of Hong Kong. He's appeared in court, he's been charged along with four other pro democracy advocates with failing to register a humanitarian fund with the Hong Kong police. Now, the cardinal is due to stand trial in September, he was arrested, as you said, last week may 11th and released immediately on bail. His detention, of course, sparked fury around the world, with calls for him not to be intimidated. The White House and human rights groups condemned the prospect of national security charges against the 19 year old cardinal and diplomats from several European countries actually attended zen's hearing yesterday in the courtroom. And in zen's first public remarks since his detention, he criticized the Vatican for its unwise deal with China. What is the issue here? The issue is a 2018 accord that was struck between Beijing and the Vatican to try to ease the long-standing divide across China between the underground flock of Catholics who are loyal to Rome and the official Catholic flop that are loyal to the Chinese state backed Catholic Church. Along with many other critics, zen is against the deal. He says it compromises the Pope's moral authority, gives too much power to Beijing, whereas Pope Francis himself is defending the deal saying, well, it's better to have an open dialog with Beijing than not to dialog with China at all. So Chris, here's one final detail. The humanitarian fund quoted as grounds for cardinal Joseph zen's charges, refers to the so called 6 one two humanitarian relief fund, which helps pro democracy protesters in Hong Kong to pay their legal fees. Absolutely. Also very interesting how the church has to think about its role with political with countries. This was obviously an issue with the orthodox church, Russia as well. And their role. Well, finally, before I let you go though, Juliet, we have something a little more fun cultural to end the show with you have news of Google and essentially most clicked on cultural destinations. Yes, Chris, can you guess? I'm looking at Italy now. I've taken a step back from Vatican from China from sits and I've gone to my other favorite hot topic, which is can you guess, which is the most looked at cultural hotspot in Italy, according to Google street view. See, now that's really not fair because I have it here in my script. So I could try and pretend and say, was it the coliseum? Was it the tower of Pisa? Was it Piazza San Marco in Venice? There are so many options to be for so many places. It's the Roman forum. And second up, I'm very pleased to report is Juliet's house in Verona. Now, I mean, seriously, how many around the world dream of recreating that epic balcony scene between miss capulet and senior montague, romantic. We all love Verona. That's in second place. Third place is Palazzo pitti in Florence. So a cultural destination in different Italian cities, one, two, and three. Now I'm just curious to know from you, first of all, which cultural hotspots in your native U.S. or Austria, you think might be most sought after. Just for those who don't know, Google street view is an app that lets you check out 10 million places in 87 countries in 3D Chris. What do you think? Well, see, this is what's interesting because one has to think about it, not necessarily as what people within the country would look at when you look when you take something like Juliet's house. This is clearly coming more from abroad. I would imagine then from Italians. So given that, I would take the guess that it would have something to do with the sound of music in Salzburg, perhaps trying to find the very hills that they ran across or something along those lines, something that Austrians don't necessarily always enjoy the focus on. They would rather have it be Mozart plots the home of Mozart in Salzburg. But if this is Google street view, I'm going to say it's going to be the sound of music. I love it. And what about the U.S.? What do we guess? That's also a tricky one, but probably like Pennsylvania avenue and The White House. I'm going to say.

"We turn now to Hong Kong where police have arrested cardinal Joseph zen, one of the most senior Catholic clerics in Asia, for breaking Beijing's national security law. The 90 year old cardinal is one of four people detained for colluding with foreign forces. While joining me now from Hong Kong is Theodore yu, a reporter for The Washington Post, who's been following the story closely. Theodora welcome to the globalist. Why was cardinal zen arrested? So cardinals and was arrested under the security law for allegedly colluding with foreign forces by serving as trustees for the now the spended humanitarian relief fund 6 one two really fund. And the fund provided financial assistance to thousands of protesters arrested into 2019 pro democracy protests and paid for their legal and medical fees. The fund has now disbanded earlier in September after the national security police issued a statement saying that they would investigate whether the entity had violated the security law. And what happens if zen is found guilty? It so far, it's unclear if they were if he and the others would be charged. But if he is found guilty, he could face a maximum sentence of life imprisonment for the collusion with foreign forces charge. What can you tell us about cardinal zen and the role he plays within Hong Kong society? Cardinals and as the most outspoken senior Roman Catholic clergy in Hong Kong, he has been an advocate of pro democracy causes and a critic of the Vatican for its silence on the city's Politico situation and the increased repression of churches on the mainland. His figure was seen in Hong Kong peaceful marshes, political matches, and he spoke out for protesters, called for no violence, and protests against a prosecution of mainland charges too. And in 2018, he vocally opposed the very controversial Beijing Vatican deal. And he also tried to meet with Pope Francis two years later trying to hoping to persuade him to appoint a new bishop for Hong Kong, who would be trusted by the Hong Kong people. And despite the slightly tricky relationship with the Vatican, the Vatican has in fact expressed concern over the arrest and there's much talk that this might seriously affect relations between China and the Vatican. Is that your sense? So from the experts I've spoke with, it seems, for example, Eric lai, a law fellow from the Georgetown university, told me that the arrest had been glad to be already tense Beijing, Vatican relations, and will cause widespread concern in the intentional world, especially at the time when the controversial deal is set to be renewed this year. But another expert low long from the Chinese university of Hong Kong had told local medium main power that chance arrest may not be intended to target their religious sectors, but more because Beijing is determined to fully control and stifle opposition and that it won't really affect the Vatican deal because the wants to avoid further separation of official and underground churches in China. But when both parties renewed a deal, they would have to talk about sense of rest, which could be a bargaining chip for the Vatican when it comes to the negotiation. Do we know how this has been reported in Mainland China? Sure. China's Xinhua news reports had mainly about the response from the Chinese foreign ministry's office in Hong Kong. And it mainly condemned foreign forces for slandering legitimate law enforcement actions of the Hong Kong police and urged them to stop this political performance full of ideological prejudice. And pro Beijing media one way Paul described the arrestees zen and the others as black clad riotous supporters. And for the involvement of black riot fund and also they suspect they are conspirators of Jimmy lai, who founded the now shuttered pro democracy newspaper Apple tale as Jim I had donated to the relief fund. And what can you tell us about those other people that were detained alongside the cardinal? Sure. So alongside with the cardano detained arrested was Margaret, who was a barrister and former lawmaker who served the public for 17 years. She is also a high profile democracy figure who was previously a director of the news outlet stand news, which is now chassis and under going through servo or national security charges. And also Dennis Ho is a well-known singer and also a pro democracy figure outspoken in her support of LGBTQ rights and most notable during the 2019 protest who has made speeches at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva and talked about the Hong Kong protests and called on for UN to remove China from the Human Rights Council. The third is scholar Hoboken. He is a prominent cultural studies academic. And he was apprehended before his departure in Hong Kong, according to local media reports. And so he was basically intercepted before he was he flew to the Europe to work as a visiting scholar. And he was apprehended before his departure. He was his contract was ended with Hong Kong's non university a month before the relief fund ceased to operate it. So yeah, and he and the others are currently on police bail. Right. The timing of this is interesting because the arrests follow the selection on Sunday of Hong Kong's new leader John Lee. Now of course we know he's a hard line former security chief. He ran unopposed in a process completely controlled by Beijing. What does this say about the future of Hong Kong under mister Lee's leadership? Right. So as mister Lee has repeatedly emphasized in his public speeches and also his manifesto, maintaining stability and safeguarding national security will be his main goals and the arrested the arrest in the past days basically shows that Lee is going to continue what the current government is doing, which is to which would signal a new way of detention under the national security law. And Lee replied he responds to the Financial Times question about sins arrest and he basically repeated the current Hong Kong government stand saying that actions will be taken accordingly regardless of the person's background. So like you said, I think we are for seeing continuation of a hotline approach and possibly more arrest in the future. Theodora, thank you very much. That was The Washington Post Theodore yu, speaking to us from Hong Kong. Now, here's what else we're keeping an eye on today. Russia has said it will be forced to take retaliatory steps over Finland's plan to join the NATO military alliance. Finland will formally announce the country's decision on Sunday after the bid has been considered by parliament and the country's most senior politicians. North Korea has announced its first death from COVID-19 with state media adding that thousands more are experiencing fever symptoms, analysts believe the virus has been present in the country for some time, but Pyongyang is only choosing to reveal it now. The UK prime minister Boris Johnson has said that he wants to act 90,000 civil service jobs in a bid to free up money to tackle the cost of living. The Labor Party has accused Johnson of pointless rhetoric and says he must do more to support people struggling with bills. And today's monocle minute reports on the opening of the European International Film Festival in Singapore. It was launched to strengthen ties and facilitate cultural exchange between the EU and the city state. You can find out more at Monaco dot com forward.

"Dot com. Tell me Eric, why is relief factors so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of before ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. And that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me. It has for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more, go to relief factor dot com or call 804 relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. You live your life in the songs you hear on The Rock and run right here. Volkswagen back, I'm talking to John's mirac Jon it doesn't have people can read your stuff at stream dot org stream dot org. What else should we talk about? Well, Jason Jones and I co authored another piece at the stream called first China came for the Uyghurs and the Vatican said nothing. I don't know if people following China news. The most prominent Christian in China has just been arrested. Cardinal Joseph zen, 90 years old, he's the cardinal of Hong Kong. So he's from the part of China that was free until 1998 under British administration. And then was turned over to communist China. On the promise that it would retain its free political system. Of course, like all promises made by communists, that turned out to be a lie. And there have been crackdowns and arrests and China put into place a law that anyone in Hong Kong violated the Communist Party's authority could be shipped to Mainland China where the courts and the juries would be much stricter. Cardinal zen helped set up a charity fund that would help fund the defense of people against such extradition orders. China just arrested him and everyone else involved in the foundation. And they faced prison time years old. 90 years old. Are you listening, folks? Are you listening? We have companies in America making billions of dollars off of China. They arrested a 90 year old Christian hero. Do you care? Tell us the rest of the story, John. Well, the Vatican doesn't care. A few years back, the Vatican made an alliance with communist China against America. Let me repeat that. The Vatican under Pope Francis drew up an alliance with communist China against Donald Trump's America. It was a secret deal negotiated by someone named cardinal Theodore mccarrick. He's no longer a cardinal because it's come out that he was a pedophile, he had been molesting a child for years, so that's the guy. The crack negotiator of the Catholic Church in Washington, D.C.. Right. He was the archbishop of Washington. He was cozy with power, he smiled. He pretended to be the face of Catholic faith in the nation's capital. If you wonder why we have so called Catholic Christians like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, you can look to mccarrick. So he was friends with them. I mean, of course. When you see the so called pro choice Catholics, they were all pals with mccarrick and with people like him. They're just sad to see. And they're just together doing the business of Caesar. So mccarrick goes to China. Again, remember Trump is president. And makes this secret deal. The terms of it are secret, which reminds me of the Hitler Stalin pact in 1939. You have two apparent enemies suddenly making a secret deal and an alliance against whom. In both cases, against the democratic west. In both cases against the U.S. and England and the free market and the constitution, it's forces of evil and in the case of Francis, it's less wing Marxist infected Catholicism that is friendly to the sexual revolution, friendly to abortion, friendly to gay marriage, friendly to the destruction of the family. In other words, the forces of evil, the forces of outright evil. So this deal between the Vatican and China. Was supposed to help protect the religious freedom of Catholics in China. It did not. In fact, it led to more of them being arrested. It led to Protestant churches that don't cooperate with the Chinese government, getting bulldozed. They're getting torn down. People going to prison. At the same time, China cracked down on the Uyghur Muslims. 3 million Uighurs and other Turkish ethnic minorities in what they call the province of Xinjiang. Uyghurs call east turkestan. 3 million of them are in concentration camps right now. Getting tortured, getting re-educated, being forced to have abortions and worst of all being cut open while they are still alive to steal their bodily organs and sell them on the international black market, which is Forbes magazine reported that. That's not weekly world news. That's not funny. If you give a penny to the NBA or if you're a fan of LeBron James, there are people making billions of dollars. Participating in the satanic evil that John just mentioned going on in China folks. If you don't care about this, you are dead inside. We need to wake up. And thank you for writing this article. And the new movie Top Gun. It falsifies American history. In the original Top Gun, they were a patch from the flying tigers from when the American airmen who helped fight for nationalist China against Japan in 1941. China said you can't have that because that represents another Chinese regime. So they took it off. Top Gun this so called patriotic movie is catering to kowtowing to communist China. So no, don't waste your money on the Top Gun. Go see something else. Stay home and pray, but don't go see Top Gun because it is part of this sniveling before the communist overlords in China. And what we need to we need to pray for Cardinals in and the other imprisoned religious believers Christian and non Christian in the totalitarian hellhole that is China and we need to hold the Biden administration responsible for whatever secret deal they have with the Chinese that.

"Patrick, I wanted to ask you a little bit about Finland's relative military strength because I guess this is another differentiator with certainly other post 91 post 92 applicants and subsequent members of NATO. Finland and obviously within the Kremlin that the Russian leadership will be very aware of this. Finland is a much more consequential military power and that too is interesting here, isn't it? It's an interesting point actually looking at just what our foreign minister Becker harvester, he had a call with EU parliament after this finish policy was announced this morning and he said that Finland would contribute actually a lot militarily to NATO, so it's not only NATO, sort of contributing to finished events, but also Finland contributing to NATO's defense, Finland has a wartime strength of almost 300,000 troops and a trained reserve that means men who have done the military service, which is basically almost all the men off about 1 million nearly soldiers. So we're talking one of the largest, if you go into reserves, one of the largest land armies in Europe. So this is very considerable also given that Finland announced the purchase of 64 stealth fighters from the U.S. so Finland is militarily very strong and also contributes to NATO's defenses in the Baltic as well as the Arctic areas. Patrick, great to have your insights. I'm sure we'll hear more from you in the days ahead that was our correspondent in Helsinki Petri berts off Marcus just before we move on. I know actually you and Patrick sort of slightly disagree about the nature of the sort of preparations from the leadership in Helsinki for the Finnish public. Because you're read on this is that there's a, if not explicit and implicit degree of caution and a sort of urging for the wider Finnish public too, prepare for what could be as you see it pretty rocky times ahead in terms of this relationship with Darius. I was talking about this with better before we started the program, and he didn't read the situation quite the same way as I did, but I feel like when I've been listening to finished politicians, what they have to say following this public debate and also very much about what the Finnish media is riding at the moment. There's a lot of talk about what may happen next to watch Russia may do next and what it feels like to me is that it's almost, I get the feeling of the nation being repaired for something that may be rocky times ahead, so for example, when I'm speaking to my family in Finland, they've been following the news that they know to expect that they may, for example, lose electricity at some point if there is a cyberattack by Russia. And they are getting prepared for maybe getting refugees over the border for us to decide to do that. So there's been so much to talk about difference scenarios of what may be happening next that Finland is actually amazingly well prepared for that. And I think that's something that also makes the nation feel. A bit safer and stronger in this situation in these historic times. Marcus fascinating stuff, thanks for joining that discussion and we are certainly keeping you busy today. Marcus, because now you've been casting a broader eye around the world and you have the other news headlines for us. That's right, Tom. Authorities in North Korea have ordered a strict national lockdown after confirming the country's first official COVID cases, state controlled media sit there has been an outbreak of the omicron variant in the capital Pyongyang, but its Norse elaborate. One of the Catholic Church's most senior figures has been arrested in Hong Kong for breaking China's national security law, cardinal Joseph zen, who is 90, is one of four people who have been detained on charges of collaborating with foreign forces. And today's monoclonal military reports that the university of Birmingham in the UK and the university of technology in Jamaica are collaborating in a beat to help revive the Caribbean islands, railways, you can find out more at Monaco that come forward slash minute. Those are the days headlines. Thank you very much indeed. Marcus, let's head to France next on the briefing. The country's socialist screens communists and other far left parties have formed a somewhat unlikely coalition ahead of next month's legislative elections. Well, let's get the latest from Paris now with the AFP journalist and news editor Florence biederman. Good afternoon Florence, good to have you with us on the program. Yeah, just tell us about the makeup of this coalition. It's a historic, and as I say, rather unlikely grouping, isn't it? Oh, well, unlikely. I mean, not for his leaders. The leader of the far left party, la Francisco, France and boat. She translated literally. And that has been his hope for a while, like to lead the left and to be the main opponent on the left, to Emmanuel Macron. So this alliance, as you say, was a bit unlikely, but it has been made possible by the complete root of the Socialist Party at the presidential election. They got only 1.7% of the vote that mean it was historically lost core and also the ecologist on a green ecology lever also felt badly less than 5%. So there was a huge disappointment of those two parties, the Communist Party with the force actor in this alliance also didn't do as well as they were hoping. So because of this disillusion with the election, so the socialist and the ecology is felt compelled you know to rally on who scored 22% of the vote and who came third, which was kind of a surprise. So let's say somehow they had few choice, you know, either they try to go on living in their little corner with less and less and less and less power or they try to form this alliance. And this is what they finally did after, let's say, painful negotiations because, of course, they had different points of views on several issues. We'll talk a bit more about the implications and what this could mean both for Macron and for the political landscape broadly. But before we look ahead, I did want to look back again. Is there any sense do you think that there's a public appetite for this kind of coalition? Because we see if we go back, it almost a hundred years. These kinds of alliances of the left that are still viewed, I don't know, fondly by the French public as being champions of social progress as being unifiers of leftist politics. Do you think there is a bit of nostalgia or do people look to the past to inform their contemporary voting decisions in that way, Florence? Maybe because this is somehow Francois miter on the former socialist prison came to power. He made an alliance with the communists. At the time, also it was not an abuse and obesity alliance. And even before the presidential election, there was an appetite of many voters on the left to have only one candidate. And there was even kind of an attempt to know to nominate a former minister of Francois Hollande, Christian tobira to lead this common common leftist alliance, but it collapsed. I mean, it didn't work because each party was trying to compete and get the more vote they could so they didn't want to unite before the presidential election. But yeah, there was that was somehow some for the voters on the left, what's the choice? Either they have mental is pretty far left or they have this kind of broader alliance that you know at least as a chance to play an important role in politics. Well, yeah, and tell me a bit about what president Macron will make of this, of course, he we've talked at the time of his election victory about the difficulties he could encounter if there's a more fragmentary domestic political picture..

Well, of course, we'll be looking through the papers from Zürich will also be getting the very latest in business and that's from Helen Morrissey coming up in a bit later. And of course, we've got fabulous Eurovision too. Shireen Abu akle, a veteran Palestinian American correspondent for Al Jazeera, has been killed while covering a raid by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank. Well, let's get the latest now with tahani Mustafa, whose Palestine analyst at the international crisis group, where she works on issues, including security, sociopolitical issues and legal governance. Tahani, many thanks for joining us. Who was Shireen Abu aklan and what was her place within the Palestinian media landscape? Thank you for having me. So I just wanted to take a moment to just start to express their feeling of grief that everyone here in the region is experiencing right now. Assuring was more than just a Palestinian icon. She was really a trailblazer for our movement, especially. Really breaking the stereotypes, really breaking and shattering those glossing, but a lot of our women face social and culturally. Across the region. So that grief is really being felt all over. I'm enjoying at the moment and the feeling here is absolutely fun though. You know, so many of us across the region grew up watching during, you know, and the kind of trailblazing that organizations organizations like Al Jazeera and his correspondents like Shireen really provided for a lot of country, especially that can be classified as a sort of new desert. If you like, which makes a lot of the kind of outpouring of solar diary and condolences from even our regime and their leadership really hollow at the moment. So absolutely she was Palestinian but she was much more than that her reach. It's a real testament to her reach across the region. What do we know about how she died? In algebra have come out and so as many witnesses and they're calling their senior and extra judicial tuning. This is an actual assassination of one of the most prominent correspondents. And unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident by any means. And what makes this really tragic is that it could have been avoidable, had Israel been brought to justice, tried to interrupt military establishments and brought to justice for the way that it not only philosophically corresponded, but generally speaking, Palestinian journalists faced before systematic abuse daily. It's a daily occurrence for a lot of them. Sharing model unfortunately came only days after you had the international press federation generally federation and the Palestinian general syndicate bring a case to the ICC about the kind of harassment precisely the sort of harassment that Palestinian journalists face in the field are not only that the murder of four other Palestinian journalists in the years preceding this since 2015. We shall in Gaza alone during their great return march 2 gentlemen to kill just last year during the confrontations is our deliberately targeted the building, not hosted at the official age of Al Jazeera. So this is not an isolated incident, which makes it really, really tragic because if Israel have been brought to justice for the kind of killing living community, but it so often gets away with. These instances wouldn't occur on the level that they do. And so are you in agreement then with the Palestinian authority president Mahmoud Abbas, who said that it was part of the occupation's policy of targeting journalists to obscure the truth and commit crimes silently. Do you think that that's a government policy or is this just individuals acting? I mean, it's very difficult to assume that this is just like I said in isolated incident or just certain unintended road incidences by any means because it occurred on such a systematic level. You're talking about hundreds of Palestinian journalists that face this sort of harassment. On almost a daily basis, you know, for a lot of us who do watch local media, Palestinian media or even Arab news channels, when we do watch how to sing in correspondence in the field, we are left with jarring images of constant jarring images of their correspondence being tailed while they're on foot by Israeli military tanks. You see them being rocked in the field like we did during the protesting chef John off lost and just last year. We had an Al Jazeera journalist being manhandled by Israeli peace. You know, the constant is even being fired at with stun grenades, rubber coach bullets, live ammunition. So it's very difficult to assume that these are just one of incidences or just a few soldiers disobeying commands by any means. This is a systematic pot Israeli policy of targeting, specifically Palestinian governments. You do not see these same images. How can when it comes to correspondence from CNN's Fox News, the BBC is finding. I have never seen this in all the years. I've been working in the field, actually happening to international journalists journalists on the same level that it does to Palestinian correspondence. However, there is obviously a call for an investigation, but Israel has also called for a joint probe into her death. I mean, look, Israel has victorious history for not only whitewashing its own crimes, but also never having ever brought a single soldier to justice when it has come to any killing of Panasonic journalists. There is not a single case where a single soldier has actually been brought to justice. And like I said, this is not an isolated influence. Isn't the first journalist to be killed by the Israeli military. Just in the last two years alone, we have 6 other journalists housing in journalists killed while they were reporting from the field. And in none of those cases was a single soldier brought to a trans ability. The Israeli military has a notorious reputation for the lack of accountability within its justice system. And so right now, what is truly needed is an independent international investigation into this. We can not rely on Israel to investigate its own crimes. And this is not just something that Palestinians are putting something out or speaking from subject to place. This is objectively being called upon from numerous numerous organizations, whether it's Israel's own human rights organization who they've insulted that your job can not be relied upon to investigate this fairly. Or some plastic experiences where, like I said, not a single Israeli soldier has ever been brought to justice. Not only for the killing of Palestinian generals, but also generally cognitive thousands of Palestinians have been killed in the last decade and not single fortress in truly brought to justice about. Honey. Thank you very much indeed. That's Tahoe Mustafa of the international crisis group. You're listening to the globalist on monocle 24. It's.

"Finally, adoration. Music is very big in Sweden. The music industry is very we're very like get out there in many ways and we love this competition. And we love Eurovision. We'll hear from the Swedish entry cornelia Jacobs ahead of tonight's second semifinal. That's all I had here on the globalist live from London. First a look at what else is happening in the news. The European Commission president Ursula von der leyen has called Russia's invasion of Ukraine the most direct threat to world order. Officials in North Korea have ordered a strict national lockdown after confirming the country's first official COVID cases. And one of the Catholic Church's most senior figures cardinal Joseph zen has been arrested in Hong Kong for breaking China's national security law. Do stay tuned to Monaco 24 throughout the day for more on those stories. Now, as both Finland and Sweden way up joining NATO, Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson has visited both countries, pledging to bolster military ties in the face of Russian aggression. I'm joined now by Petrie berts off Monica's correspondent in Helsinki and by Charlie duxbury Politico's correspondent in Stockholm. Welcome to both let's start in Stockholm with you, Charlie. What's the nature of the military agreement between Sweden and the UK? Good morning, George. Well, yeah, I think there were a bit light on kind of specific details of what the UK might do if Sweden were to suffer an attack or a disaster as they phrased it. Or vice versa. But I mean, I think Johnson wanted to create the impression that all options would be on the table and it would depend on what Sweden asked for. And I guess the same would go for his commitment to Finland. Obviously, this comes in a context of the ongoing debate in Sweden and Finland about potentially joining NATO. And a potential few months ahead if they were to decide to join to apply to join NATO where a kind of unclear security situation would be would be in place before the kind of mutual defense clause of the NATO membership would kick in. And Petri, do we have any detail on what was agreed with Finland? Well, the actual declaration is very similar to the UK mate with Sweden, but then in the press conference last night, which Boris Johnson held with the Finnish president solanin is the local journalist actually asked Johnson, what does this mean in practice? And he replied by saying, well, this means military paid if Finland is attacked UK will assist in militarily. So he made it very, very clear because it's a very sensitive issue in Finland, especially this waiting period that Charles mentioned before Finland is officially a member of NATO, you know, it can take up to several months and Russia has already threatened Finland and Sweden in various ways. So it's a very sensitive issue in Finland and the local journalists wanted to get the more in detail information from Johnson. Does military aid mean supplying military hardware? Or does it mean boots on the ground? He was also asked that and he said that it's up to the country which I support that aid to decide what kind of aid they want, but he said that nothing is off the table. So it could also mean boots on the ground if that is needed. Charlie, the Swedish leader, magdalena Anderson has said that Sweden is safer with this pact in place. Is that how the Swedish people feel? Yeah, I think so. That seemed to be the response to yesterday's news conference with the two leaders. Everybody's kind of concerned about what a potential application to NATO would mean for Sweden. Obviously, we're not as close to Russia as Finn and is here. But there are concerns among the population here about how safe they would be during any transition period to NATO. So I think the Johnson did enough to kind of make people feel slightly safer. I mean, Petrie were talking about that period between applying to join and actually then being covered by NATO protection. We know, of course, that Finland and Russia share a huge border are Finn's in favor of joining NATO, given the threat from Russia Russia is actually said they are watching very closely anything that can affect NATO configuration near our border. Yes, that's a very good question. Fins are a large majority of things. I think it's 76 or 7 to 8% are in favor of joining NATO. And this is a dramatic turnaround. I mean, for decades, that number has been sort of between ten and 25 sort of maximum 30% of fence of traditionally favored favor joining NATO's or maturity has been against it. Whatever since Russia's war in Ukraine, we have just seen this very dramatic turnaround. And you know, there is really not even a debate about it, even the sort of further left the far left parties that have been the most vocal against NATO, even they are now four NATO. So it's such a wide social and political consensus. But it hasn't actually been announced properly that this is going to happen. When will we know the definite position regarding a bid for NATO membership? Well, actually in about 50 minutes time. So both the Finnish presidents are an innocent prime minister at Santa Maria and will unveil their view on NATO and Finland's membership at 10 a.m. Helsinki time. So yeah, in 53 minutes. After that, it will go to the finished parliament. We already know that every single party in parliament is four Finland joining. So everything points to that the actual application will be launched by the end of the week..

markets Asia senior economist at natixis Trend just for fun let's have quite a pacey session here Quick questions quick answers and we cover a lot of ground Are we moving away from inflation concerns to more growth concerns now Well clearly China's birth is at the center of everyone's mind on how long these lockdowns would last And whether or not they were widened further because China imports data were very weak and we already saw that coming with the PMIs particularly services going down to the second wars on record And the fact is that a lot of hope is for this ending of lockdowns kind of got quite reversed as things tighten up in Shanghai and Beijing So across the world the worry is a how long will this continue Because it import data was April and we know May that lockdown continues So whether or not we continue in June and beyond and that impact the rest of the region and the world because China is the largest importer of commodities So obviously the Aussie dollar has felt this quite acutely But not just Aussie dollar obviously You feel it across Asia and also especially Europe Yeah let's talk about as well what we saw with the inflation data in China and whether or not that kind of complicates things for the PBOC too as you're facing these price pressures or the core inflation was a little subdued Right core inflation highlights the demand issue but we have a supply shock issue that started before the 24 February invasion of Ukraine but clearly escalated right So China faces higher food inflation but core inflation is subdued So many things that it's still freeze for freeze up space for the POP to ease However we have another challenge for China because of the fed right The fed is hawkish And so even though even though inflation food inflation accelerate and core is fine the fed limits the space for the PVL C to ease particularly on the interest rate side because that puts a lot of pressure on the yuan because of demand is low So we have growth differential of interest rate differential Do you think do you think that the PBOC wants a weaker you want Well I think on the one side you can say well that would help with export sector right But exports in the is now spacing a different sort of challenge It's not so much that you can do value The real one to help competitiveness via FX But because the supply chain construction factories are not at full capacity right So they're not able to meet the demand of customers So if you look at the exports number do be in from the U.S. And in Europe as well so much negative news about recession in Europe but not yet right So we still have strong demand but the demand is not being met by the supply as you know about the news of our port congestions and would lock downs even.

strategist at Edward Jones Mona thanks for being with us there from your location in Warren New Jersey Hope things are well with you So we had the day begin with this consumer price index reading Overall we cooled ever so slightly from the level seen in March but you got to take a step back We're still very near four decade highs Is this enough to get you concerned that we're going to see a lot more in the way of fed tightening You know generally we think the moderation and inflation was I guess on the top line a good sign But underneath the surface when we see the reaction in markets what we're seeing really is more of a scare around growth than really a scare around inflation And you can see that inequities for example what outperformed were again aside from energy the more defensive recession proof parts of the market utilities Staples healthcare yields didn't climb higher on this inflation news They moved lower debt now under 3% And then of course interestingly we also got to move in the investment grade bond market And I think for the first time in some time we finally saw that defensive flight to safety nature of investment grade bonds play out and they were positive on the day versus continuing their downward pressure as well But generally speaking I think investors and markets aren't going to be comforted by just one inflation print that moves lower We're going to need to see two three maybe even more before we start to get a little bit of relief in that relief that we're looking for in markets Sure it was one print It was a bit lower than the previous month but it was still more elevated than expected here The thing is they have that remit of growth as well The Federal Reserve and which one do they at the moment favor is a growth they're going to be ultimately the sacrificial lamb for controlling inflation Yeah Look Jerome Powell has said that the fed may be able to execute what he called a soft ish landing implying that maybe you get growth close to zero Maybe even get a shallow recession but the mission really is to bring down inflation from this highly anchored point that we are now Keep in mind though there's only so much that the fed can do in terms of impacting the demand side of the equation There's a supply side of the equation that needs to ease as well Not only supply chains but labor supply coming back to the market From the fed perspective we don't think Jerome pollen team really want to do any shock and awe to the market to immediately put this downward pressure on the economy and drive us into a very quick recession I think that was clear when he took the 75 basis points virtually off the table but also kind of said two more 50 basis point rate hikes kind of guided to that He's really giving a little bit more transparency as to the pace that the fed is going to go to Now all that being said three 50 basis point rate hikes back to back is still more than we've seen in probably over 20 years We are looking to see if anything cracks during that process But the good news is I think for investors is that the U.S. economy in particular started from a position of relative strength With the consumer and corporations as well So I'm wondering if what you're really describing here is kind of similar to what we refer to as stagflation And if that if you can.

"Cardinal joseph zen has repeatedly warned that this china no good and that the vatican was not getting anything out of it a year ago he told me about the choice of bishops in china. Lysm say the pope has a right to veto d- nomination by the company's authority. But i doubt if there is such thing in the end agreement on even suppose. They really derive veto. How many times you can veto because you. You'll be embarrassed to veto indefinitely your thoughts joy george. Is that an accurate where we are. Today it's very accurate. Read a raymond. I've discussed with cardinals in As you have to set up a process in which the only thing the holy say can do is saying no is simply ridiculous. This is a violation of the church's own canon law It is a real blow against an evangelically. Vital missionary solipsism in china. And if we could just continue for just a moment on some of the further. I want to share with the audience george. Some of these rules. They read this way. Clergy will not be allowed to organize host or participate in unauthorized religious activities held outside the authorized places of religious activities and will not be permitted to preach and schools other than religious. Schools clergy must belong to one of china's state run religions pastors of quote home churches or underground churches will not be permitted to be registered clergy. The rules also called for religious clergy training programs for the political education of religious clergy as well as their cultural education and clergy should also be judged on their behavior with a system of rewards and punishments in place. How should the vatican be reacting to these rules toward. It should immediately reopen the negotiation on the appointment of bishops. It should be vocally publicly. Defending catholics like jimmy lyon martin lee currently on trial in hong kong and it should make clear to the chinese authorities that the catholic church is not going to tell tale..

"So kind of the middle of this common sharing Some highlights with you. The Vatican's 2018 agreement with Beijing just recently renewed gives Communist the communist Chinese state extraordinary say over Cool. Is selected for the Catholic bishops and whose terms that Rome insists on keeping secret. They won't know they won't tell you what they have agreed to with China at all. None of your business. Just shut up and give him give him your money. Prosecution has increased in China. Of religious folks, including not just Catholics. But but all religions. China is one of the world's worst abusers of religious liberty, says the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, where makes China's repression especially repugnant is the heavy involvement of the highest levels of the government. It could be the Christians. It could be the Tibetan Buddhists, the Falun Gong, the weaker Muslims. They attacked realism really, just freedom zealously gallantly in pursuit of absolute power. No religious believer. No religious leader can in good conscience turn their gaze away from this repression, says the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. Pro. Francis does exactly that. Hongkong's Cardinal Joseph Zen Says he is not that it's not a recent development that Hong Kong hearts have been broken. By the lack of encouragement from the pope. Made the protests and the mass arrests that have marked their continuing struggle with Beijing quote. The cardinal conch long says, quote. It has been 1.5 years that we are waiting for word from Pope Francis. But there is none. The cardinal of Hong Kong, and it's been a year and a half. We've been waiting for word from the pope, but there's none. And there still is none. But he will meet with the NBA players. And, uh, receive a black lives matter T shirt from so when you're being arrested, tortured And jailed for your Catholic faith. He won't even, uh, respond to you or speak out on your behalf. But he will meet with the NBA players who are owned by the Chinese, too, and receive a black lives matter Certain smile and receive it. Huh? And he's ah faithfully. Huh? In passing mention this is the bill. Milligram column I'm continuing to share exempt from In passing mention in a new book, Pope Francis rightly refers to the Muslim leaders in a list of persecuted peoples. It is a tepid criticism and it gets and it's It gets in may well be the on Lee. Critical thing he has ever said about China. Even so, the Chinese Foreign Ministry felt wounded enough that the single sentence that he wrote required a public repudiation at a press conference C Do you will. They will destroy you. You will complete bow down and bend over and do everything I tell you, or they will destroy you. And that's how they roll. And that's what they're doing to us little by little as they slowly take over as much of the camp because their idea is a one world China. Dominate the entire planet. Obviously And they hate God. That's why they're communists. That's what they do. That's why they persecute people like you and me that have faith. In September. This cardinal from Hong Kong. Just then the cardinal flew in to Rome on his own initiative to talk to the pope to talk to Pope Francis about what Beijing was doing to the Catholic faithful in Hong Kong and China. Pope Francis refused to see him. Wouldn't even me with them. What does Jesus say? When I was hungry? You fed me when I was cold. You gave me clothes. Pope Francis refused to meet with his own cardinal. Yet later, the pope did find time to discuss justice and in equality with the NBA Players Union delegation which gave him a black lives matter T shirt, See the MBA and black lives matter is more important than, uh, Catholics being tortured, murdered and jailed. That's the leader of the Catholic Church. It the Vatican's approaches being justified by cold, real politik, a politic politics, it all have have the integrity to not shirk from acknowledging the price. To wit. It now requires Pope Francis to look the other way when China unjustly jailed or persecute those of his own flock. His own flock. What does Jesus do when when one sheep give goes missing and the 19 another are right there. And you find that you go out. You find that one sheep you scoop it up and you bring it back in right? Rejoice, rejoicing rejoicing over one sheep. And what does the pope doing? He has closed the gate. And when the ship comes up, saying, please, here I am. I'm back. Let me in. The pope goes to the other side of the Penan ignores the sheep. Or hell, but we'll office here, You know, I mean, it's eating me. The pope walks away and ignores. It doesn't let it back in.

"I mean and I've commented on several friends of mine that it's just painful to listen to that man talk not only because he of his of his horrible positions but just he seems to have trouble speaking coherently. I can't imagine anyone even on a natural level voting for him. I mean I don't know if he has dementia or what's what's going on. But something is not right with in his brain well he may have Dementia Mirror May I. He's what seventy eight seventy seventy eight. He would turn eighty in his first year in office so he he's at the age where Dementia he's seventy seven we're Ordering his first army return any He's at the age where these things start to happen. My Dad got full blown out timers and he was seventy three. So it's conceivable. I've seen other campaign stops. I just watched him last night rambling on endlessly in Texas at a at a rally that he was adamant. Rourke and Pete the Baba Buddha Zhang and Amy Klobuchar and he was stuttering in. Stamina's way through that he didn't know who Chris Wallace was on Sunday. Call Him Chuck Todd. Yet he is. I mean at this point. Isn't he basically between him and Bernie right well? Okay so with the elimination of the car and Baba Buddha Zhag and Tom Steyer. That's sixteen points worth of polling data that You would think would prime would principally go to creepy Joe Biden and that would give him a six point nationwide edge over Bernie Sanders basically put him back where he was a around? This time last year. But he's got a winning primary states today and from the last point that I've seen Colorado is GONNA go socialist. No SURPRISE THERE. Did you know that The one of the counties Colorado that one of the eleven counties in two thousand and twelve that wanted to got on the ballot and two thousand twelve election. Eleven counties had bowed initiatives devote northern cal Colorado counties to vote to delete Colorado informed North Colorado. Whatever THEY WANNA going to call it so Mike County was one of those. I live in Weld County and it was Yeah some North North Colorado counties. I think there is one or two Western Kansas you know like North Western Kansas and then South East. Wait a minute. Yeah Southwestern Nebraska and northwestern Kansas also wanted to get in on this and form a new state of the Union yes so five counties voted yea and people said judge what no six six of the eleven so five or against and of course you know the media industrial complex sessions illegal anyway and it was defeated. No it wasn't I don't know if you know this because maybe don't keep up on local politics but I do on your behalf. I am in touch with the people that are going to be a guest here on the show later on this month. I am a touch with the people Weld County that still. WanNa leave Colorado. There's a there's a facebook page. Look it up. It's a weld county with well. County secession or something to that effect so Weld County is still in the fight and I believe who is immediately to your north state wives. That is it. Montana is owning Wyoming so wyoming is cool with having a little pimple at the bottom of Air State called Weld County. No seriously well. I only wants to leave. Wants to leave Colorado finished with Colorado for all the right reasons that I'm sure you're seeing some of what the state has done because the state has gone lip tar blue there alone at Dick's running the asylum openly practicing homosexual as governor. So I think that pretty much says it all right there absolutely. This is interesting to me because Weld County is trying to do to me. The number one. That's well within their rights and this free political people ought to do but it's also a great great stand for subsidiarity and solidarity. So what they're saying is we can't or they're rolling stones song. We can't get no satisfaction from from boulder. So we don't want to leave with these people anymore. If I recall correctly the one of the main arguments boil down to basically you know Denver. The capital Colorado gets lives high on the HOG based in in part from a lot of oil and gas money that they get from Weld County and other Eastern Plains counties and yet they don't want to give us a stay or listen to what our priorities when it comes to the setting the agenda the capital so that was one of the Main talking points for for leaving is that if they don't want to respect our values and priorities then they don't they don't need to take our money either. That's right So I think it's a very good case been made for for Weld County secession. Now it will be fascinating to me to watch this play out because I can't wait to hear the howling arguments of you can't leave another state joining. You can't farm and understand leaving understated you gotta ever make my illegal West. Virginia did it. There's still people that contests are still Virginians. That say that the West Virginia actors ascension was illegal back in eighteen sixty two or whatever it was so this is fascinating times in which we live but you live in a good county. So you got people there that do not want to be governed by the blue haired Pinko Commie Socialists. That are running. Denver and ruining the state of Colorado. 'cause you know you're also an an estate map matt there unfortunately as as like show many other states in the United States like Pennsylvania Pennsylvanians in the west of Pennsylvania. Man That's trump country. That's conservative country. There's good hard-working Conservative. Americans and Pennsylvania. I imagine when you leave the major cities of boulder and and the tourist traps of Denver and the other ski cities Aspen. What have you when you get into? Towns like Greeley where you live and other smaller towns. I imagine that Rural Colorado was pretty frequent conservative. Oh Yeah I have no doubt that the weld will be firmly in the trump camp tomorrow. So what's what's rather I should say. Today it was fascinating to me about that again and the practice self-government. You're actually have to do it. So if weld county were to become part of Wyoming a this was like why like the proverbial wildfire so Lots of lots of political shenanigans. Going on also my my son lives in Colorado now and he tells us Stories of the town he lives in his Fleming. Fleming is south of me off of I. Twenty five and now he tells us stories of the growing population of shiftless losers at the cannabis clubs that and of the growing homeless population in a he tells his mother and I just can't he goes every day. This seems like there's a new homeless person has moved in is taking his campaign out on the streets in the town. So what's happening in San Francisco and in Los Angeles is being now replicated in Colorado because you have the same policies here and you know. The state law prevents some of the The cities for Mac Nicole. I can't do that here man so it's just tragic. What's happening? Yes I agree the whole the constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana is a an embarrassment and a black mark on our state's history for sure. Yeah and Colorado had a had a great history. But Hey thanks go in cycles. The left is enjoy under big party. Now I'll tell you one more thing and then we'll talk about Archbishop Vegan which you really call it about I don't know if you know this. But there was a group of lip cards from Minnesota that put Thirteen million dollars into turning Colorado blue and the two thousand and twelve two thousand sixteen elections and these are radical homosexuals as a big story. A write up about it at a trump. We did it on the show here. I'm trying to remember. It was the it was meet the homosexual there. I think it was at first things I wanted to say was the first thing story. Very lengthy very detailed and they executed this plan and they went into your state. And they went borough by borough town by town. They identified the bad elements and they funded them and not only. Did they. Fun them they funded enough people to relocate to to Colorado that they knew were a reliable socialist Bernie voters. And that's how they turn your state blew. That was an intentional effort. Imagine this carpetbaggers from Minnesota win into Colorado and assaulted your state's political system and turned it blue. I don't know if you knew that That certainly doesn't surprise me. I I don't think I've read that particular article but it doesn't surprise me in the least because it has been a very radical change relatively quickly the last several years. Well God bless you got a lot of other good people in Colorado like our friend Kristen. Colorado who building an impregnable impregnable built from the ground up by his own hands fortress of House and the Colorado hinterlands so Keller is not over yet for Colorado its role enough to to rebound and. I'm sure that it will. What can you tell me about this? Latest article by Archbishop Vegan Vegan Vegan. Oh so just to get a little background over the weekend. Our friends at the remnant published It's basically an open letter that Archbishop Biegel no wrote it's addressed to Cardinal Joseph Zen the intrepid former bishop of Hong Kong who is the probably the most stalwart critic of the Vatican's sell out of the church in China and my understanding is that Archbishop Vegan. Oh wrote this letter to him in response or in light of should say a letter from the Vatican signed by the current Dean of the College of Cardinals who was just recently in the last couple of months appointed to that position voting on it by the college and it was approved by the pope. Cardinal Giovanni Battista Ray and it's a letter that is critical of cardinals then It was it's available in a town I think Yeah talion online the daily compass. I'm not real familiar with that outlet but they're the ones who published it and I'll just read a little bit from their explanation of letter. It Says Cardinal Joseph. Zen is an obstacle for the church in China and from now on the Catholic Church can be formed by independent churches. This is the essence of explosive and incredible letter sent on February twenty six. So that was ash Wednesday Last week Wednesday to all the cardinals by the Dean of the Sacred College Cardinal Giovanni but he's array that the daily compass has received in marks a pherson unheard of frontal attack on the eighty eight year old bishop emeritus of Hong Kong the intrepid opponent of the state secret agreement between China and the Holy See signed in Beijing on September. Twenty second two thousand eighteen. And it's essentially trying to normalize this secret agreement. Part of the terms is to try. And normalize the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association in other words the communist fake church over there with their schismatic bishops and clergy and such and try to draw the underground the true church out of the catacombs. So they're taking basically Nyla by the Communist Party so Archbishop Vegan Oh.

K.'s labor party though he's never sought to be an elected politician lan McCloskey's power comes from the trade union movement which he joined as a young dockworker in Liverpool and now as leader all unite the biggest financial backer of the labor party he is a dominant figure on the British left that much was obvious when Jeremy Corbyn a hard left back bench and peed unexpectedly won the party leadership in twenty fifteen land McCloskey's backing walls a decisive factor but much has happened since then Corbin for to and lost to general elections and now labor is looking for a new leader a new ideas when it comes to saving the party from a slow political dance is lan McCloskey part of the problem or the solution well the joins me now welcome to heart talk thank you only he of last December's UK general election did you honestly think labor was going to win no honestly no I was predicting that some Boris Johnson with game away a couple majority I must admit so I was shocked by the level of thought majority but it'd become evident to me for some time that labor's drift into being a perceived remain policy was going to pay some problems give us some real problems soon you know how soon so you draw your own personal conclusions even the whole of votes have been cast yes very much so in fact I've had drawn those conclusions for over a year and I was attempting along with others to try and persuade the labor leadership not to slip into the remaining area unfortunately we did pay the consequences so funny convenient doesn't have the the people around Jeremy corporation in various different forms of all concluded the the problem wasn't Jeremy Corbyn wasn't anything to do with the policies all the divisions within the party it was all to do with confusion over brexit not seems a very convenient conclusion that's not convenient to all of those other issues you mentioned islands to what happened in December but if I can take you back to June twenty seventeen just turn off years ago Coleman went to the electorate's with the radical manifesto I mean came within touching distance of power money lost he came within two chin two didn't really well yes no that's not true Stephen the reality is if the conservatives of loss one of the five seats label would have been in power yes but only because the Scottish National Party had a lot of seats on very and what it is let me know lady but if you compare it with the glory years of Tony Blair labor is underperforming it underperformed this time around a lot easier well there's no doubt that this was a massive defeat now in terms of on the performing let me just make this claim in twenty seventy Huntington twenty nineteen Jeremy Copeland hot mole Vokes filet back in England and Tony Blair what let's talk about the disaster that woes the December election of twenty nineteen it was very evident slots as we drifted more more towards a remain policy that in all hot ones there was a feeling of betrayal there's no doubt to Bertha so when you say betrayal you'll trying to brexit maybe the betrayal is much bigger than that working class people feel betrayed by the labor party as a movement because it no longer speaks for them let let let me quote to you extensive research done by lord Ashcroft now he normally polls for the Tory party but he's just released a report diagnosis of defeat labor's turned to smell the coffee he has one key finding he says wanted in one's been true that they knew was because they were part of us being a manager for the labor party and its supporters labor today you seem to be mostly the students the unemployed and middle class radicals it seems not to understand ordinary working people that seem to to stay in what they considered to be mainstream fusion to disapprove of sexual Stephen the reality star brexit cool school of thought are you trying to tell me that in two years from twenty seventeen to twenty nineteen suddenly there was this turn around about Jeremy Corbin's leadership all the radical nature of labour's policies that once it's the one thing that happened was brexit on brexit played into everything brexit played into the belief that labor of collect them down in heartlands he played into the belief that Jeremy Corbyn wasn't a strong enough leader and all the elements aptitude thought it sounds so simple the way you put it ten thousand played by eighteen focus groups precisely with people in labor see to have voted labor a no longer we're prepared to do so and again I quote it just breaks it hang on this list Ashcroft found these people felt labor couldn't be trusted with the public finances that labor look down on people who disagreed with that label was too left wing and fail to understand or even listen to the people it was supposed to represent but the point I'll keep coming back to this please do not Texas in twenty of course it's praxis the whole question about being portrayed on left that was good with the public financing provisions that were to happen if we so what happened what was the difference between twenty seventeen to twenty nineteen the credibility argument comes from the fact that in an attempt to break through brexit labor produced a manifesto which had way way too many policy since in the desperate hope that people would push brexit to one side latest radical policies taken in isolation as individual policy all popular with the general public many many a polls of proof that it was praxis well the perception Jeremy was not a strong lead a divided policy that did for us in the December election so when Rebekah alone barely the candidate for leadership that you and your union of put your wife behind in this leave a leadership contest when she says when I lost how to rate to corporate leadership of the labor party that she's given ten out of ten what would you give it I'm not going to play them silly playground games the trial the fact of the matter all right forget I'm going on to see Jeremy cool the like any lead to make mistakes his major mistake goes back to the home fios label went to the electors on the basis of respecting the twenty sixteen referendum I'm pledging to take us out of the European Union he should have stuck with that polls he should have stayed with our policy is labor's policy but then he would have had to have dealt with the whole off of the nation that believed in remain on the should of all cute the case that we would still respected twenty sixteen referendum take us out of your but we would do so in a way that protected jokes investments and dealt with any of the fees that remain as Hans was so striking about your analysis is that your pile of blame on brexit an infant when Boris Johnson does indeed deliver over the next five years on getting bricks it down then not problem will have gone on to you that believe the way will be open for labor to perform brilliantly the next all that's that's absolutely sure you do not all of this evidence Ashcroft is on the cover that many people inside labor of I've alluded to which is that right now is a much deeper fundamental disconnect between labor and many of its former supporters in the so called labor hall and the friendliness and the North Texas is the reason so so when our Jolson hung on you talking about Ashcroft's police my union polls all members twenty thousand to find a different levels of what they think about various issues which is why I knew way in advance DOT labor's position.

"And I'm talking to Cardinal Joseph zen about the situation with the church in China cardinals. You said that Pope John Paul the second and the people around him in the Vatican really had wisdom in dealing with the complicated situation of Catholic church in China. So how did this? How did this change? What do you think happened from John Paul the second to where we are today? Obviously Pope Benedict in writing the letter that he wrote eleven years ago twelve years ago also seemed to understand the situation. So what is it that you think makes this pope not under? Let's go back today year two thousand. Yeah. Before the two thousand. John had a very good collaborator. Not see Tom call. He's comes from Czechoslovakia. And so he knows the communists. Really wise and open and we from Hong Kong, especially those who came with in China in the mid east, we gave him many formations encouraging wins and he ready candidacy to each at all those people. And but then I said the moment, obviously, the government was I wear everything. So the governor was awarded David will be going to to to communicate with home. So in two thousand two events happen when? At the beginning of the year the government plan a ordination of eating maybe up bishops. But actually, it was a failure. Because only five when to said that did Asian, and but anyway, I it was a a act due to threaten the people that they should not obey to to the authority Dini, Rome. At the end of the pope declared the Dessange modest in China and the communist. Stage day campaign. I tell you become pain they called all the bishops to Beijing and to sign a letter of protest against both. Because he was a. Running in pediatrics. Yeah. Those two events. You know, obviously to threaten the people in China. So that day stop communicating with them. I'm forgetting as that by the. Tonko reached the age of retirement. He's says was not a young Italian cod. You know, we know expedients and so kind of five years of avoid. Pope, John Paul, the sink in the past subway and Pope Benedict to coffees. Oh, no. You know? He comes from Germany. Yeah. So DAS and the Nazis Smith. Yup. And then also Lebed expedience DVD's. Germany into. Did that each idea regime, and when he came to office, he did something wonderful for the church in China when he wrote a letter. Wonderful letter. And then he set up a huge commission. Wait a minute company people. So it was a very good the beginning. But unfortunately. The new congressional everyone Judaization he. Coding. India? Okay. He was a very good, man. And. The long one. But unfortunately, he had too much illusion in the so called us politique guy. That's the politique deported east of. Appeasement a my company GM and so. And and also the people in the holy sheet. Mostly they decide up that's the promoter of Ostpolitik under different popes. And so day spa depends of the pope pan. Okay. So this is this is one of the things that Benedict was fighting and probably which caused him to resign. Another words. He was I think he was aware that the situation was bleak that the people around him. In the Vatican. In many ways were not his friends. I would say. The the origination. As because he said that they had really no fee strains and to to carry on the job. Okay. Actually, we may say that people did not obey him, and he was reluctant to use. Yeah. But by that time before you design around the year two thousand ten. There was a rumor that a agreement was ready. Be saying, but is it in? No, nobody's anymore. So we have reason to believe that the pope refused to sign by agreement. Yeah. Those people back carrying on negotiations. They are oh, you know, off the school bus. So they tend to compromise with the comedy. So. Zayn? And then pope Francis came a bathing new different situation. And so we now having a kind of a conclusion of was what is going on after friends. She took office. No. You know at both both entities and g sickly upstate guardian about name. We're conceded. They kind of outsiders. Yeah. By the group of power. And so when pope Francis came first job is to find that you say upstate, okay? Forgive me. This is our it's our final break when we come back folks a few minutes with with Joseph Cardinal zen.

"Suzanne plans they may put an end to the folks. It's the Eric Metaxas show. I've got a very important guests on the line from overseas. I believe he is in Hong Kong Alaskan when we get him on the line. But if you're familiar with the struggles of the church in China. And when I say, the church, I'm talking about the underground church the van Jellicoe as well as the Catholics. It's a grim situation. I've written a lot about religious liberty. Obviously by Baen Hoffer book speaks to this issue. And we've got a difficult situation right now in China. And I said, you know, wouldn't it be wonderful? If we could get Cardinal Joseph zen to talk to us about this. He is has since two thousand and six been the cardinal of the Catholic church in Hong Kong, and he joins us on the phone right now cardinals. Then welcome. Good morning. Good money. You're in Hong Kong right now. No. I mean, the stage traveling here. Oh, I reside. Even call in Hong Kong. Yeah. I'm Mary tied to be show retired Bishop even better you have time to talk to me. Tell me. Give us the many people listening who are not familiar with the situation of the church in China. We know that historically. This is a real balance, and that the Chinese government has been very difficult with the church, and they believe in they have an official church that they give their approval to. And it it compromises the church in a sense. And so you've been in the middle of this. And you've written a book, which I want to announce the title, it's called four love of my people. I will not remain silent on the situation of the church in China in two thousand seven. Pope Benedict wrote a famous letter and then ten years later, which is affectively. Now, you wrote this book, you gave eight lectures, so tell us what is the gist of what you are saying in these lectures. The communist regime in China Asia is he's forty nine. And so he's a long history and can never any loyalty. From. And so. Issue started from the beginning. And. You know in all these years. Moment of silence. We could not know anything about China was open, and then decide to do some relation between the bad deacon, and the Chinese government and now up to many different. You know, Asian. They have try to reach agreement now. Yes. But we are very much eat that the extra. Pope may not understand. Accordingly the whole situation, and especially the people around him may not giving him right anyway. So. Called the secret agreement. Maybe later warning for. Okay. We when you say, yes, you know, when you say the secret agreement you mean recently a pope Francis. Obviously Pope Benedict wrote this letter in two thousand and seven, but the current pope Francis made an agreement recently with the Chinese government, and what you have been saying. And what others have been saying is that you're not you're not convinced that this pope is aware of the oppressive anti Christian nature of the Chinese state in that he is being naive. I think is is that effectively your concern. Image shooting the Poconos much everything but not exactly the whole situation because. The Chinese companies out very clever and did Chinese my masters in in a plane. Be would so we don't have a detection because he secret, but we afraid that. The pope me maybe teach at the by the way, Chinese scientists document because from the some pieces of inflammation, which you leaked out. We we we doubt David agreement easy. The good the church. Okay. And in a way because I wrote I don't expect you to know this. But I wrote a book about Dietrich Bon Hoffer and in the book, I have to cover how Hitler dealt with Christians. And of course, the famous or infamous concord dot with the Catholic church, which they're being very clever, just as you're describing the Chinese government being very clever and understanding that he really wants to neutralize the church. This his goal is to neutralize the church and the concordat in a way was his way not of coming to terms with the church, but of of neutralizing, the church neutralizing, the voice of Christians. Yeah. You you do very well to mention that concord died because AT city. Hurting. As you are Asia. Regime. Simply don't believe the agreement. Huge agreement to gain time. Sometimes sometimes at you do to cheat the deposits, and do you remember that shortly after the concordat dramatically and had to write to me many that just protect because December don't respect right? And finally. But I. Bye. Issued a in. So very clearly, you know. They would how he had been cheated by the regime of. Yeah. Well, so we're dealing with people in the Chinese government who do not believe in truth, and they do not believe in God. So they believe in power and anything they can do to manipulate people. They think his fine to do. So. So they're playing games. My question to you is what is your biography? Did you grow up your whole life in communist China? I am born Shangai, but I came to Hong gone in for the H that means before Asian so communist took power in for the night. So I never really suffered. Suffered and the comedies. My my my family, and like all the families in China and show. I I grew up in Shanghai. But we the comedies. And then I lived peacefully in Hong Kong. Could this study nine years, you need to Lee Dan came back to gone, and I my my profession is to teach you feed other PNT allergy indicating Shinde and. I. Speech previous H to be but to teach feed allergy industry immunity in China. Into the official church that means and the control of the government, but I went into China in eighty nine. Often of eighty nine you remember, the Mus quit. So by that time, everybody going out of China, and I got into China. They welcome new very wet. And I spend sheiks Monday year for seven years in China to teaching the same. He's. Say is Fisher that opportunity for me to really know deeply the reality of the judge in China. So I guess my question. One of my questions is do you think at some point the church and China must go underground is the is the official church endanger of compromising so much with the Chinese government that they cease to be a prophetic voice. The government from the very beginning. I wanted to have independent church. But. Has had to expand the missionaries. They say you have been always slave overdose. NPD's now, you get three so. Have a you church. No. You know, I guess our dog team. Yeah. We are you and your church really beginning. A good part of the church may be maybe even more than half. And. I choose to disobey. Yeah.

You're you're in Hong Kong right now. No. I mean stage traveling here. Oh, I reside. Even call in Hong Kong. Yeah. Maybe tied to be retired Bishop even better you have time to talk to me. Tell me. Give us the many people listening who are not familiar with the situation of the church in China. We know that historically. This is a it's a real balance, and that the Chinese government has been very difficult with the church, and they believe in they have an official church that they give their approval to. And it it compromises the church in the sense. And so you've been in the middle of this. And you've written a book, which I want to announce the title it's called for love of my people. I will not remain silent on the situation of the church in China in two thousand and seven. Pope Benedict wrote a famous letter, and then ten years later, which is effectively now you wrote this book, you gave eight lectures, so tell us what is the gist of what you are saying in these lectures. Yeah. Communist regime in China. Is forty nine. And so he's a long history and the comedy is can never set any loyalty from. And so the deficit crucial started from the beginning and. You know, in all these years moment of silence, we knew anything about China and then to open and then started to do some relation between the Vatican and the Chinese government and now up to many different. You know? Asian. They have try to reach agreement now. Yes. We are very much ward. Eat that the extra. Pope may not and Kodak lead the whole situation, and especially the people around him may not giving him right? So that so-called the secret agreement. He later warning for. Okay, you when you say that. Yeah. You know, when you say the secret agreement you mean recently pope Francis. Obviously Pope Benedict wrote this letter in two thousand and seven, but the but the current pope Francis made an agreement recently with the Chinese government, and what you have been saying. And what others have been saying is that you're not you're not convinced that this pope is aware of the oppressive anti Christian nature of the Chinese state. And that he is being naive. I think is is that effectively your concern. Shooting the Poconos much everything but not exactly the whole situation. And because. Chinese companies out of very clever and did Chinese masters in in a plane. Be would so we don't have to take because you'd secret, but we paid that. Maybe maybe the by the way Chinese science document because from some pieces of information, which you leaked out. We we doubt diva agreement easy for the good of the church. Okay. And in a way because I wrote I don't expect you to know this. But I wrote a book about Dietrich von Hoffer. And in the book, I have to cover how Hitler dealt with Christians. And of course, the famous or infamous concord dot with the Catholic church which Hitler being very clever, just as you're describing the Chinese government being very clever and understanding that he really wants to neutralize the church. This his goal is to neutralize the church and the concordat in a way was his way not of coming to terms with the church, but of of neutralizing, the church neutralizing, the voice of Christians. Yeah. You you do very well to mention that concordat because city. Hunting. Oh. Totalitarian regime, Kimberly dunked believing any agreement. Agreement to gain time. Sometimes sometimes at you to cheat the deposits, and do you remember that shortly after that a clunker that the Mexican had to write to many many protest because December don't respect? And finally. But I. The. Issue. So very clearly, you know. Reinjured the would how he had been cheated by that regime overheat. Yeah. Yeah. Well, so we're dealing with people in the Chinese government who do not believe in truth, and they do not believe in God. So they believe in power and anything they can do to manipulate people. They think is is fine to do. So. So they're playing games. My question to you is what is your biography? Did you grow up your whole life in communist China? I am born in Shangai, but I came to home gone in for the each means before. Okay. So the communist took power in forty nine. Yeah. So I never really suffered and the comedies. My my family date and the last like all the families in China. And so I I grew up in Shanghai. But without the comedies and then. Live peacefully in Hong Kong. Could this study ninety s you need any Dan came back to Hong Kong, and my profession is to teach feed other theology into custody, seventy and. I had a speech a privilege to be but to teach. Industry in China. Into the official church that means under the control of the government. But I went into China in eighty nine. Often of eighty nine you'd remember the champion square. Yeah. That time everybody going out of China, and I got into China, they knew very wet, and I spent sheiks year for seven years in China to teach the same, and that was a speech at a unity for me to really know deeply reality of the judge in China. So I guess my question. One of my questions is do you think at some point? The church in China must go underground is the is the official church in danger of compromising so much with the Chinese government that they cease to be a prophetic voice. Yeah. The government from the very beginning wanted to to have independent church. But. I had to expand the missionaries. You being always slave overdose. Now, you get three. And so have a church now, you know, I I guess our dog thing, we are Union-Russia church. So phone video beginning a good part of the church may be maybe even more than half. Choose to obey. Putting reason? In prison labor camps. We're we're we're just gonna go to a break. Forgive me for interrupting we're going to be right back. Ladies and gentlemen. I have the privilege of speaking with Cardinal Joseph zen. We're talking about the Catholic church in China. It's the Metaxas show. This is AM nine seventy the answer. Mostly clear.
