"I mean, it's back to what I said. I think there is a sense of what we're working hard to talk with crisis and the rules don't necessarily mean that for us. And we're at the heart of this crisis zone and it must be very stressful and there is a sense of letting off steam. But look, it comes back to the main point, which is there's this uncomfortable feeling isn't there that they're sort of what everyone else has to put up with. We make the rules and yet we're sort of like we don't have to abide by them ourselves. And so we'll make it should not be rule breakers and people don't like that. We must take people for food. Are you angry about it? You're conservative pair. Does it make you look like a fool to be a member of this party? Well, it's uncomfortable when you look around the country and you hear testimonies of people who haven't said goodbye to their loved ones who were little girl writing in things with her birthday party. You do feel a sense of shame and discomfort at that sort of thing. Let's come to consequences in just a moment, but this idea I mean it was written in a piece by I am a cowboy journalist yesterday that if there were more women around more women like you who calm stuff down and could warn of trouble brewing and fewer blokes running around buying cases of Malbec. What do you make of that? Well, it's tempting to say that the women should run the world. And I'm not saying by any means I was perfect and everything I did in my time and number ten. But look, I think a balance is important. And I think boundaries are important and one of the things that work well in my time in number ten was that I have smart Cameron and others strong woman to thank for the fact that she didn't want a sort of nonstop meeting pizza eating drinks in use to say kenton style pizza is meeting no boundaries. It was very much of you that everybody worked hard when there was a meeting there was a meeting, but things didn't sort of more from one into the other, as it were. So I think that is an important part of it. So Samantha Cameron used to shut the door and delineate. She absolutely did. I mean, of course if there was a crisis, we were all there, but there wasn't a sense of real just more from one for morning evening into oled sort of chat this over. I mean she was very clear. This is family time or David Cameron will be reading his papers in the red box, but there were strong boundaries. Do you think Boris Johnson doesn't have strong boundaries? I don't know, because I don't work in number ten, but there is you do get the impression that certainly over COVID that there has been less boundaries than there might be. Of course, you mentioned some of the comments that you've been a guest on this program and talked about her own career in her own right, but also trying to be in that role and Carrie simons as well as now carry Johnson has been pulled into this and of course what she is different in the sense of being a spouse being a partner is that she is herself and was a political operator..

"Washington Post today is really it zero most spectacular. It's just It's incredible how awful it is. There's no mention of Memorial Day on the front page. But there is this. They've got raised racial division all over the place. They got Confederate statues and Texas GOP pushes to pass strict voting bill they like to say. But it's uh you know, restrictive and racially, of course, because apparently white people and black people can't vote the same time of day or the same days here in the same way or any of that stuff. By the way, there were absolutely crazy. Um Examples where they like to call now. Gun violence, gun violence. What would 20 or 25 people shot at a rapper's party in Miami over the weekend? 20. I mean again. The ST Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago was seven Gangsters being shot and killed. In Florida. At least two dead and more than 20. People shot at a single event, and that's not even Chicago. It's completely crazy. Absolutely not. But I went looking through The Washington Post today for the stories about Memorial Day and I kept going and going and not finding any stories about Memorial Day. I'm marveling this and they say, Oh, those terrible Republicans in Texas. They want to strict restrict voting for people of color. Because they found ways to pass laws that only affect people of color and voting laws and things like that. So I'm looking and I'm looking and I'm going after in the end, I got I got to get to this the anniversary 100 year anniversary of the Tulsa race riots and how they actually started. It's kind of a fascinating story. The Washington Post doesn't want you to pay attention to They do have a story on page 11 of today's Washington Post. Americans celebrate holiday weekend with a big return to roads and skies. It's actually just about traveling and people going back to air traveling, you know, traveling and all this stuff Also, I really want to get Tomo. They're upset about Confederate statues. They have a Basically a full page story on Joseph Stalin's birthplace and how some still toast to the dictator and there's a statue of Justice Stone. They're not tearing that down. Are they? Because the left, you know they don't tear down statues of Stalin. That's in Georgia, the former Soviet republic of the independent nation, allegedly of Georgia, where Stalin is from. And how they've got monuments to Stalin all over the place. They kind of like that. That's remarkable. Also the prime minister of Great Britain, This is kind of struck me as strange on page 13. Boris Johnson, the prime minister of Great Britain, got married over the weekend. And a little blurb on page 13 56 years old British prime minister married his fiancee, Carrie Simon's in a Secret service at Westminster Cathedral. Because that's where you always go for your secret service is when you're when you're the prime minister of Great Britain. You want to keep it low Key. You go Toe Westminster Cathedral when you're the prime minister to have your secret ceremony, and he's the first British prime minister to be married while in office in 199 years, I thought that was a mildly interesting story, but that I'm still looking. I'm looking for the hate Netanyahu. They really hate they love writing stories attacking Netanyahu. And on the Democrats hate Israel and they hate Netanyahu. And that's a story in there, too. I kept going and going, and finally I got to the last I'd flip that couldn't flip any more pages I get to the last page. And it's the editorial page. And then the Op ed page, and the lead editorial is this. That line is an appropriate memorial day. That's and I'm like, Oh, good. Finally, something about Memorial Day and today's Washington Post. The sub headline is the nation must honor the deaths of African Americans in combat and beyond. Well, you don't under the deaths of African Americans in your newspaper ever. I've been reading the paper for more than 30 years. It's not something you guys pay any attention to, just by the way. That's him. That's the whole paper. That's the whole thing on appropriate Memorial Day, the nation must under the desk of African Americans in combat and beyond and saying, Wow, that's kind of an amazing thing. And then across from that, e J Dione little Strange little man with the headline. Patriotism and the promise of Black Liberation Black liberation patriotism in the premise of black liberation. They're nothing if not racist. They're the party of the clan and all that. And the Marjorie Taylor Greene story coming up, because it's just it's just one for the books, as they say. But first, let's go to the telephones were 886309625. Let's go to Mike calling from summer Duck Virginia summer Duck is one of the great names for a town anywhere. Welcome, Mike. Hi, Chris. Great show. Thank you for covering them from Memorial Day. It's a day that near and dear to my heart, and I just wanted to tell you about a quick story that my dad related to me while I was on And then I related to my best friend next next door. And while I was relating it to the Next door. My dad stepped in, So I'll just tell you the story. They were flying. He was on a bombing run in Korea. Um and was they started taking some Um, ground fire 20 millimeter ground fire, antiaircraft, grand grand fire and as he pulled out away from the attack area One of those bullets came through the Um and my dad didn't even notice that he had been shot until he started pulling out and the bones started squishing around in his leg. Pretty grisly story. Yeah, when I was when I was relating the story to my friend many, many years later, Um, I told him that story and my dad pulled up beside me. Well, when they got the plane down, gotta leave didn't want to leave us up. When they got the plane down. Finally, Um there were 250 holes in the plain. Both wing tips were shot off. The writer was shot off. And my dad might hero got that plane down in what was left of the one piece that itwas Andre. When I was relating story, I said there were 250 holes in the plane and the other stuff and my dad came up, put his arm around me and said Mike There were 256 holes in that aircraft. Don't don't leave out the other six and I, It's a poignant and it was funny and it was something he lived through. That man loved his country. He fought for it on. I am amazed every time I think about him. I get a little teary like him right now. So I just thank you for letting me tell that story. You bet..
