"My name is Dan Hannah. I'm coming to you from the city filled with heroes in bunkers marks. Tesla Chris Leslie Greg Rosenthal. What's up? Boys Hey. Dan does feel like that does. I didn't think that some point do we need to stop calling them the NFL are we just. This is what the podcast is at this point. It's just the draft wonders losers show and who knows. If we're ever getting out of the bunkers we'd better get out of the bunkers. This is I think this is about twenty eight. Nothing's twentieth show in the garage and apartments and back houses and everywhere else. I know right when someone asks someone asked to. If you were a wagering person would you bet on more bunker casts or more current super bowls and this was a while ago but I think bunker cast at this point or an easy out of the park home run us? Oh fifty five bunker casts. I mean we're back in the office by fifty five. I would say that. Say a violent could ta in terms of Society freedom always loved when violent finds? Its Way and sentences that you would never expect. Espn back there. In twenty three episodes I don't know L. No no hell out the guillotine and took care of Corona virus just the revolution off up ahead. I'm still I think about sometimes if I left any food on on my desk her. What's going on in that place because true at occasionally leave an apple or an apple an orange? I doubt it's GonNa be a rotting corpse at this point when we left and again we have so much to get to. The the draft is in the books. And we're gonNA share our winners and losers from the twenty twenty NFL draft. Yeah but yeah when we when this began just like everybody else in the world that hit everybody by surprise. I didn't know when I walked out of that office that we might not ever go back in so I have a great like thermos that I had in the podcast studio that I almost thought about. Can I get into the building to get it? And then I was told the key cards of the deactivated. So Great. All right everything's fine. They're the world's great yes. We're excited to go through. Everything else had happened In the virtual draft We are coming off our Thursday night late Thursday night. Show where we gave you all the round one breakdown and now going to spin through our thoughts and analysis on rounds two through seven and All that good stuff you guys Feeling good What what's your like Greg? What's a big picture takeaway from what we lived through the last three days as football fans in the football industry. In general I mean I really enjoyed it. Maybe was just 'cause I haven't had any sports to watch. I mean I guess I'm just very average in that way that you know Emiko. My wife comment three. She was like I can't remember you like watching and start like getting into the draft since we've been together. It's probably the last time I watched it at home. Which was like two thousand five like? I just needed some sporting events so I enjoyed it today. I don't know these three guys. They threes they threes. What job search. Yeah it's fine but I liked it. It was a funder all right so we as we do every year in the Saturday evening. Show we go through the winners and losers and Let's get going then. This'll be fun west. I want you to kick us off. Give us a winner. Let's start positive before we start taking our shots and I'm GonNa do a tag team to NF TO AFC. West players drew lock quarterback of the broncos and Josh Jacobs. Running back of the raiders. And I'll start with the ladder. Jacobs play with a quarterback who didn't really test anyone downfield last year and I'm sure so a lot of stacked boxes. Now you add Let see these names here. Lynn Boden who to me when I read about him. Seems like a new era. Josh cribs former quarterback WHO's physical. You can use them all over the offense you can use them in the return game. I'm sure he'll be there. Jet Sweep Kinda Guy Henry rugs the fastest player in the draft and Brian Edwards and other big wide receiver You got a lot more weapons. That was the big weakness in this offense last year. And I think Josh Jacobs will see a lot more room to run. He was so impressive last year. And I believe should have won the rookie of the year award. And then the Broncos just every problem they had on offense they fixed it and I thought the Cherry on top was getting Lloyd. Cushenberry the center in the third round. Who a lot of thought was a plug and play starter right off the bat marks Vaber Guy. Love me. Thirty of the chiefs and my mock. I mean that went south but not for Denver. I think Derek Carr throw him in there for a winner. I mean what an off season he ended up. Having the Tom Brady drama. Rumors were clearly annoying to him for a while but in the end the results are what matters and as dance pointed out. I think Mariota is about as good of an option as he could have had behind him for a guy that he should be able to beat out. You know as John Gruden's offense much better and I think he's more talented than Mariota. And then you spend the whole start of the draft giving him more weapons more options more flavors Bowden. Sounds like they announced him as a running back that they're gonNA he's GonNa be like a joker running back you get to speedsters the question. I think with car is you know. Candy hit Henry Rugs Deep. He he's always been such a conservative type of quarterback who doesn't take deep shots in. It's almost like okay. We're giving you these deep speed threats. Were given you as much as we can. It's a nice offensive line like go. Show it to us this year. This is your year. Derek Carr. We've probably said this before but it really does feel like he has to play better this year than he did a year ago. I think to keep that job and their defense not as improved in so this is going to have to be an offense first team which is which is what they were last year too when they were winning games it helps car little bit that there's equal suspicion that Marcus Mariota could hit anyone deep on inaccurate basis. Also Dan getting your on Elway. Now look at this often. See we'll see you next year. When he parachutes into green bay snatches Aaron Rodgers away from the packers and installs him as the quarterback broncos offense next year. Listen that's the only thing he's proven he can do is poaching obvious legend and then drops of goodness out of him Yeah and listen I at one point. Trey. Wingo almost fell over himself. Talking about how unbelievable broncos drafts and it does look good on paper But you know we'll see how it goes I I'm just saying it's been a rough. It's been a rough stretch for John. Elway since Super Bowl fifty and he's gonNA results this year. I can see that but I think I mean even people who are skeptical of the broncos have to look at the difference in this roster from last year. Yeah I think they have to love it. I think what they have in. The you said fixed other problems. I mean they're offensive. Line made some progress last year. It's been bad since John always been there and it. It still might be bad so that could be a problem for them and the backup quarterback isn't going to change unless alway was lying. I mean I read these quotes from elbow. That said we brought in Driscoll to be our backup. Backup quarterback in this league in drew lock is a starter is our starter and in that part it is not going to change unless that was just some sort of smokescreen. They even drew lock. They do really believe in June draft driscoll when Driscoll's your quarterback it means you're days of winning her over even if it's just for a game or two. He's not a winner. He's not going to carry. You too. Wins. It just doesn't happen. Let's let's just listen to trey. Wingo BEEN UNBELIEVABLE DRAFT THE DENVER broncos. And let's not even add more more cushion. Marion mckelvin gene. A defensive tackle out.

"And you've got to learn to give it to yourself. You comes up. And yes the higher level you compete in the final the margins but also the finer how you can work with it because you can have a lot more training a lot more practice. If I was working with some hours a day things are gonNA change really quickly Is it possible? Is it possible that perspective could have that effect on your emotional coherence to? I'm thinking of an example. I had many years ago. Probably when I was in my mid twenties and I played doubles with this Guy. Us A great guy and he was quite a that of said quite spiritual and he had just had a daughter a baby daughter literally weeks before that and we were playing this can have a league decider and it went down to a third set tiebreak and I was. You had to climb me off the footlights. I was just like so. We'd say in northeast. Scotland. He just is a kite and a wanted it so much and chilled out and I was almost getting entity. How calm he was and he was clearly getting edited because you short but he obviously was bothering him that. I was so high and he said why why you feeling. This doesn't really that a matter that much and I went what it was like a real moment for me and he said we'll stay with me forever. He said whether I win or lose this match. I'm going whom to my baby daughter. Who doesn't even know what tennis is. And she is not going to care one one damn whether I win or lose this match and soon as he said I could literally feel my shoulders and my jaw relax and I just was like fine and we absolutely smashed that break and for me. You know that maybe tell that story law and I give lots of other examples of how some seeing something can actually change your mind. Ceo Your Brain Chemistry to actually put things in perspective and hearing them. There's merit neurons that make sociable and more acceptable. Yeah is there something in that or is that just my opinion? I would say there is because that what you described there is what we want to be able to give to ourselves so that you've come on external stuff he's talking about. His daughter is talk to you. A new you've created this nice synergy between you. I where I'm coming from as a player myself more try and teach other people is that we want to be able to create that environment within our own souls and minds so you can say an not by saying oh it doesn't matter is is getting that perspective is important and I'm going to take care of. It's going to take care of myself rather than some people. It's not important works if it works for them. It's fine as is so this is so much going back to the beginning about noticing yourself getting to know yourself without who am. I is a really big question but who am I not cool? How am I with this ball and being able to create that environment? But you did between. Your partner and I've done between my mind was partner. We've had some serious scouts of people. The applying a lot longer than us a lot higher.

All and I know after few moments and and JEB walks with anyone I play with man or woman they often I mix and some of the guys have really serious and it used to both the May of of had to go down to one hundred percent responsibility for how I feel right now It doesn't matter. What else is on the court. How am I taking care of myself in Oman? Because I now have to take care of the people I can make them as but of do it to myself so in a way you got my mind going now so in a way. It's it's almost in a really simple way being kind to yourself it is. It is because that's all anyone ever wanted once they live if you distressed upset or whatever or even happy we like being around people that make us feel good and we're going to have become that person to ourselves. That's a good place to wrap up there. I think be finally find ways to be good or like V kind to yourself. I've a fantastic friend Dr David Hamilton. Who's written ten books around that subject on a kindness in the benefits that can have another and the two of you need to meet. That would be helpful day. That's it so they is there a place where people can go to gain more tangible insights to what you've talked about you mentioned video so where the host got a couple of Youtube I can add more actually of movements and things so it was scattered across different channels moment. I could do put them together. I've only got an online course all the stuff that I do with players that could be put into video and text and audio format I have put together in a course like a DIY Kaas Bruin. Okay you could pass on the Lincoln. I could put it in the show notes. I certainly can. Yes yes good. Okay so that I tend to do this every now and again. I'm going to speak to the listener first. Second so first of all. Thank you for listening. If you have found any of this interesting then check out. The course that has put together but my plea to you is to explore experiment. If that's an acceptable thing to but to experiment with there in terms of not see as tangible things that can lead to almost intangible results. I don't if that sounds crazy but am I've tried some some of the stuff in terms of without realizing I was doing rituals and the breathing and it does make a profound difference. So bring it to life tryout and checkout series of course online. You'll see the issue. Say the Lincoln Notes Balu so say thank you so much or giving up your valuable time.

Tory leadership battle hots up, and all change at Change UK Politics Weekly podcast
"This is politics weekly. I'm Heather Stewart Naza time for us to believe in ourselves. What we can. And that's why I am standing to be leader of the conservative party Boris Johnson began his leadership campaign in earnest this week, telling him peas he was best placed to beat labor and put Nigel Farage back in his books. Meanwhile, leadership rivals queued up for an audience with Donald Trump as the US president blew into town for his photo opportunity with the Queen the contest kicks probably next week. So is it still for assist to lose this week? It's all change at change. You pay the six of eleven piece, depart, the flushing party. We talked to one of those sticking with it, Chris, Leslie. That's all in this week's politics weekly. And then there were eleven early casualties of the Tory leadership race this week were Kibble house, and James cleverly who withdrew as the party agreed new rules to weed out candidates with little chance of winning the six front runners with enough declared supporters are burst Johnson Dominic Robb, Jeremy hunt. Michael g-o-v such each of it. And Matt Hancock Johnson is current favorite to be anointed. His prime minister in the week of the twenty second of July, but a month is a long time in politics. Could we be looking at prime minister movement or dope, McVeigh by the summer while I'm joined to discuss all this by Katie balls from the spectator, and Ellie Mae o'hagan and Rafael bear from the guardian Katie was going to say you had a ringside seat at the hustings on Tuesday night, but you, you were the ringmaster hustings on Tuesday night, and we journalists most of journalists were outside in the corridor. Sad to say what, what was the mood like in there in the room managed to get a seat? So I was chairing the discussion and it was one one by one interviews. I think demeanor was fatty polite atmosphere. I think ahead of it, there was some talk that both could be heckled. And it was this is because it was the one nation caucus. So this is the group of conservative MP's headed up by Ambrosia NICKY, Morgan, now, I think there are lots of conservative MP's would describe themselves as one nation conservative term. Isn't it exactly? Specifically this group, they have the declaration of values which relate to things like having a United Kingdom the environment at free enterprise. I think what the best known for is don't like no deal, and they are opposed to nodule Brexit. So both Johnson describes himself as one conservative useless to saying that he went take canoe deal Brexit off the table. So there was some of you that this could be a real confrontation. But I think everyone listened to ever and had to say and before you an hour after gone splash on the front, free newspapers his comments, so love invasion did gap from the then of. Associates. Boris Johnson's pitch is was that he wasn't going to soften his new deal Brexit nine, but he did try and play up of the things that he would have in common with the MP's and the room. I think what's really benefiting Boris Johnson right now is someone called Dominic Robb because compared to Dominic Robb Bros. Johnson, seems less right? Win some of the MP's in the center of the Tory party on various issues, and that's making them think that if they have to have Brexit Hugh, is willing to countenance a deal Brexit. Bruce Johnson is a less bad option than someone like Dominic grump. I'm Michael go wrath last night. At the second round of these hostage not shared by Katie. We should say put himself in different position again. Didn't he said on what the idea of October thirty first? So he's the sort of even slightly more sensible Exeter's. Yeah. This has been Michael goes position for some time, which is essentially sort of the most as it was author, dogs, true believe of breaks. It's here up. To the point of accepting no deals. Because now for a number of reasons that he can't quite go that far and say, you know what? No deal is something we should do partly probably just because he is just a slightly more rigorous serious thinker than some of the people who prepared to go along with no deal. Chatting, I think he genuinely understands the hazard for the state for the economy. That would be involved in that I think, particularly the department that he was in, when he was environment. Secretary just introduced him to a lot of the practical problems that go along with doing no deal. And also, he has to recognize he's very tight cool politician, he recognizes that, you know, between. I think he's absolutely right. What she said about Dominic Robb based carving out this space football to be sort of as it were one row into simultaneous when you've got someone who's out in the oil, being completely bonkers and that's actually quite good position for Boris to be in. And so Michael really has to then pitch himself as insofar as a center of the conservative party unity. Can't that, that would be him. And I think broadly speaking, that is at least logically true. If you did a kind of a growth with a sort of X Y axis that sort of leave one end remain on the other tra- Thatcherite with slash and burn pros therapy on one, acts and one end sort of old skirts, though, wet invest spend money on stuff at the other end, and it sort of scatter plot on that axis of where all the parliamentary Tories are you'd probably find they've pretty much in the middle of that the problem is that being that Younes you can also means you alienate people on various fringes, but he, I think he's probably put himself in fairly tactically, g position and any took him out. Dominic mopping out out in the aisle. There last night's contribution from him was that he'd be willing to provoke parliament to suspend parliament, if necessary to get no Brexit, no deal Brexit food. That's pretty extraordinary, isn't it? Yes. Absolutely extraordinary. And I mean, this is a very cliche thing to save it. I, I wonder what the. Action would have been in if, if a labour MP had said that, I mean, I feel that people would have been saying it Stalinism is going to be tanks on the lawn of parliament square. You know, of course, perogie parliament is a crazy idea. And yeah, I think we should really reflect on what's going on in the conservative party. I think something really extrordinary is happening in that party. That is the case. Katie's ideas that would have seen credibly fringe now in mainstream discussion in the Tory polcy I would save on the parade and parliament comment. Dominic robb. He is that minority view of all the candidates, and actually, like a lot of people have reacted very badly to the idea. You're going to provide parliament, so I mean, it is something that you can't say they would do it in that room. It landed very badly and is interesting that in the hustings chat, every single Brexit he was saying, they would Constance emoji Brexit. So sad Javid. Andrea leads him and Boris Johnson explicit. Early route parading parliament. So I didn't think it is a majority view in the conservative party Andrew, let's inset that she consulted Klux at some point, and had wet this wasn't really viable option such Javid said that he's what parliament had to have a say. So, I think what you seeing is when it comes to Dominic Robb, what of the votes, he is going to try and make the final t now the European research group, that is a great gift, the eurosceptics of the policy that feel most strongly on having clean Brexit. Now, I think by having this dividing line between himself and Boris Johnson. I think it helps Boris jokes in many respects, I think Dominic Robb is trying to pick up this European research group votes to try and get further and free the rans, and he now has something to say, I am more serious about delivering no deal than my rivals less sanguine about the tool, even if it's only a tiny amount even if it's just only grow Francois talking about perogie Parman because Elliott this really is happening here is. Constant ratcheting of the parameters of was a normal discussion about what you should do in this country, further and further away from things that are practical. And so when you hit talk about a sort of global trade breaks or clean Brexit, or no deal Brexit. There's really no discussion of actually involves what practically that means. The reason Dominic Robb way, anyone would entertain parochial parliament is because there is this question of, could you actually persuade parliament, is that some potential parliamentary obstacle to delivering no do? And even the quite moderate will self stop motoric candidates in this race when they sable I wouldn't do not. We Michael go says, will we pretty have to get another extension their explanation is because parliament won't permit no do now? That's a pretty cowardly way of framing it. Because actually the reason not to do is because it's a terrible terrible idea. There's no such thing as a clean. Brexit, immediately often odeal your whole legal system, your economy in chaos your force back into in the Goshi action with the EU but for a much weaker position is properly bonkers. No one was seriously. Counseling in two thousand sixteen or twenty seventeen is only Lanzoni gender now and as the sort of the framing of the debate moves it just becomes a entirely normal thing to this Gus. And when half of the field of Tory candidates are prepared to discuss that quite normally that suggests a as was just said that the conservative parties in, that's a very peculiar place, ROY now when I'm part of that is because the backdrop of the discussion is what's going on impeachable this week where there's a by-election and Nigel. Farage is Brexit party looks as if it might do quite well, right. That's, that's what's in people's eyes were having this discussion. I think there is a sense that the Brexit party if you're going to the various frets to the Tory vote, the Brexit party frat is tina's at greater threat right now than the liberal Democrat vote now it's interesting. Lots of Tory candidates went to say, hey, we can actually win both voters back. I think never skepticism as how you unite voters who have said many times they want to know deal Brexit. They were only take that as being a Brexit that they would accept as fitting. Description, and how you those remained conservative OTC feel very isolated by the party and looking at the nipple Democrats. And I think he looked at the European election. Results teapot, is very well very clear Brexit positions. But completely opposing and that's a riddle I think every main party when it comes to working at had to get a big coalition of voters. I think on the Brexit polity point, there is a general sense, and I think you saw this in the hustings this week that such Javid stage loss of support. Actually, when he said the way to beat the Brexit party is by not being the Brexit party, and I think there are lots of Tory MP's you feel that you need to deliver Brexit. But you shouldn't be doing straight the noise Farraj playbook to do that anyway. Let's talk about Johnson was a briefing with a Tory poster Lord Haywood this week, who was saying he comes out with the most popular candidate. So he's the conduct people most not recognized like he also comes out the most unpopular candidate. He's an incredibly divisive, and polarizing figure isn't he would lay relish, the chance of taking on Boris Johnson to think gem, an election. I don't think that labor would relish taking on Boris Johnson though. I, I also think that we shouldn't underestimate Michael g-o-v is particularly fees. I mean I is total speculation on my part, but, particularly if he's still in contact with his old colleague, Dominic Cummings, then labor probably will be in trouble who, of course, helped run the vote leave campaigns by significant figure in the vote leave campaign. Yes. On this very talented, political tactician. Boris johnson. I think Boras he, he represents the kind of era that we're living in.
Centrism: the new populism?
"During these last four years or so of ruction upheaval in the usually stable arena of British politics. It has been commonly supposed that something sometime has to give this week. It did MP's from both of Britain's major parties resigned. Their memberships and gathered together under the banner of the independent group. These MP's are broadly speaking either from the right wing of the left-wing labour party or the left wing of the right wing conservative party accordingly. A not unreasonably the independent group have found themselves characterized if not caricatured as centrists in certain agitated circles, these last few years centrist has become an insult a suggestion that those to whom it is applied are complacent careerists and all snug elitists, but what with one thing and another might centrism nevertheless, be Jew. A revival with a here in the UK or in other countries roiled by populism. What right now too. Centrism really mean, this is the foreign desk. There are certain things that I think people are yearning for to come back into the political debate long term issues that need desperate action climate change ageing society productivity in the economy, what on earth, we're going to do with technological revolution. All of those things have completely been put on the backburner that sense that you give any ground the stop being ideologically. Pure has lost any powers law slaughter sway over people. And that's where I think these of centrism is an insult partly comes from. 'cause it's come to mean being the wishy washy not really standing up believing as opposed to what I think people soup proponents that kind of at UB about what is about rational policy-making when we talk about centrism or the death of centralism what we are also talking about is the rise of ideologues. So by that token, I'm going to say centrism is basically the style of technocratic expert lead consensus. Politics making which seems to be on the way. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew moolah. And my first guest today walls, one of the first wave of seven defectors to the new independent group in the UK's house of Commons. Chris Liz Levi member of parliament for Nottingham east left the labor party earlier this week after thirty two years of membership saying labor had been hijacked by the machine politics of the far lift I spoke to Chris Leslie at colors house in Westminster. I started by asking him if he saw the independent group as a centrist movement. I think it is a center ground formation, basically trying to build a consensus around what we have characterized as the main stream values of the country. We worked together on a couple of sides of four of our statement of values the values not so the policy prescription. So we haven't sort of gone into particular details relate. Getting to one particular month of one particular, but we've talked very much about those things that we think cut across that center ground so notions of fair play focusing on opportunity and merit in terms of advancing through society, but also recognizing the importance of responsibility, both individuals having to take some responsibility. But also, the political responsibility international responsibilities. We all have I think the public. Yes. Want compassion in their politics and hate the fact that particularly from the conservative side. Has felt as though is left the vulnerable isolated, but they also care about tax payers money being spent properly with adequate scrutiny those are pretty basic things and sometimes taken for granted. But I think now is a period where we've had to reassert some of those values because the public have have haven't heard that from the main parties for a long time. What's your feeling about? Why centrism though has become it has literally become a term of abuse or centrist has become a turn of abuse, especially within the labor party in this country, which well within living memory prided itself on upholding exactly that you'll have heard this criticism already the idea that the independent group is basically a Tony Blair tribute act. Well, Tony Blair didn't have focused clue what was going on this week. And nobody he's I think he said himself. So we've decided to do our own thing and plow our own for oh, you can't look back to the last century for the answers of for the challenges that are going ahead. There are certain things that I think people are yearning for to come back into the political debate long term issues that need desperate action climate change ageing society in productivity in the economy, what on earth, we're going to do with technological revolution. All of those things have completely been put on the back burner because partly because Brexit has arrived and the main political parties have chosen to sit on the fence or take go down particularly euro-phobic route. So I'm aware that there is this attack that somehow the center ground is a grey scale mash up of those more clear of. Tipple's on either either end of the spectrum. I don't accept that characterization of the center ground. I think the values I hold are just as valid and strong, for example. I do not believe in lese, fair market solutions in all circumstances. I similarly do not believe in status ownership and control so answers in all circumstances. I believe in well-regulated Mark social market economy, which allows enterprise to thrive and helps us generate decent economy. So that the revenues we have pay for our public services and allows government to intervene on things like health and social care and education the basics that we all need to protect those most in need that isn't something that is has been talked about for a long time. And I think people have lost sight of that. But of course, it's it's a complicated thing sometimes to talk about that in a social media age wherein to itunes and sixty characters. Everybody wants to have. A black and white answer to every possible solution. You know, you've either got to be four something or against something and almost debate or nuance has been squeezed out of the body politic. And that is partly I think what hoping there will be a bit of a response to how do you respond to the criticism, which I know you've you've doubtless already heard and certainly going to here again, this is essentially a reanimation on attempt to reanimate the very very thing that the populist revolts from both sides of politics that we've seen were actually a response to. Yes and populism. I think is has is having its moment. I mean, you can see whether it's Trump in the states all happening in in Europe. And of course, it's fueled very much by this sugar, Russian the social media side. You can definitely whip up a lot of anger if you are a populist. But I think we now we've now coming to a point where that needs to be an antidote to populism insofar as I actually think if you build a populist appeal essentially on false promises that the solution to everybody's problem is something to do with stopping immigration, for instance, if you're coming from the right wing or that if everything is owned and controlled by an individual pulling levers in the treasury, then then everything will be fine that that those false promises will be found out. You know, one of the things I've worried about in the labor party has been the constant sort of tendency to go into making impossible promises, particularly on the on spending, which couldn't really be fulfilled and most people know in their hearts, they couldn't really be fulfilled without jeopardizing the economy, you know, everybody wants everything for free. But actually when you start asking, well d- mind, I ask how are you going to pay for it or where's the money coming from those difficult decisions have have been airbrushed out of the populist. Script and they don't want to have to confront some of those things. But as Trump is finding out in the states when it comes to fulfilling those promises that got him elected. He's now struggling with with when reality bites and similarly the populist movements are going to have to face that. And unless we have the confidence to call out. Snake oil salesman that actually they are peddling things that are not that are not realistic or achievable, then then the populace will continue to win if as seems likely for the next while anyway, the independent group is going to be thought of as what constitutes centrism in British politics. And I say that with all due respect to the Liberal Democrats how quickly and how practically I guess do you do you figure out how to stop? I think it's fair to say that right now, you'll see as being defined in terms of what you're not which is to say, you're not the hard left labor party. And you're not the cranky eurosceptic head bangers of the conservative party. How soon are you able do you think to start to finding yourselves in terms of what you are? Well, I hope from day one we've tried to have a positive and constructive set of values set out in on our website and on the put that we have from. Day one because it isn't just about what is wrong with the the main parties, it is very much about the values. We want to take forward now that isn't a full policy program or manifesto. We haven't even got the structures yet, we've got to have our inaugural meetings, and so forth and talk about you know, what roles people are going to do all of that is still to be to be discussed. But. You know, those positive values in the centre ground that echo as a microcosm of mainstream society. I believe we've had a good go at articulating those hope over the next few weeks and months people will look at that. And start to say, yeah, I understand where that's coming from. It is not about an ideological approach to understanding society or funding solutions it's about an evidence based approach to moving through public policy. Trying to take a longer term attitude to the way. Different challenges are addressed. But from a set of values that I think are certainly ones that I've always felt quite strongly about but people have to read them make their own judgment. And it's up to them. It's up to the public part of this is about also not. You know to to really push back at this notion that the party's own voters. Oh, this is a labor seat or this is a conservative area parties shouldn't own voters. They should earn votes from people. And I think we need a little bit more challenge to say stop being complacent. We want to try and earn votes by engaging with people and their interests and their attitudes. And hopefully, we'll try we'll try and do that. But it won't be a straight won't be a straight line. There will be ups and downs. If people are looking for disagreements between those of us who've come together, I'm sure they will be able to find them the nature of being an independent group is that we are going to take different stances between us, but I think we'll be able to tolerate those because in normal life people can tolerate different opinions. But somehow along the road, certainly within the labour party tolerance became forbidden. And you had to literally sign oaths of loyalty this past weekend to the great leader, and in a very intolerant environment, and that cultural changes of really really strong part of what we want to try and achieve that was Chris Leslie MP of the independent group.

They're not platform. I thought it would calculating in a way that perhaps some sort of hotline Kubanychbay might say that chicken, Chris Leslie have been sound strange decisions political agenda, but this really came from. This is something she really believes in and she did give the group, but of white, and then there was someone pays the I'm much public. Haven't heard of. But who have quietly been unhappy for very long time, Andrew Smith thing one of them. And it's interesting. I think the crucial thing hairs who joins them. I am batching now would have been calm sations going on of quite long time as to who might go. It was interesting that safety people really did know who's going to enter the fray on actual Mary craze is one labor impeach for example. I can think of a whole host of MP's that have mentally checked out from labor because. Don't like Jeremy Kuban who would have been asked to join her probably thought about it. And it's still thinking about it now James bliss, what'd you most pulled off the camera lens the moment on the independent group because this is being described as the biggest schism on the British laugh natty four decades since the DP was founded in the early nineteen eighties. And there are some similarities without obviously there was the four big piece to left the labor party to form the council of social democracy that then morphed into the SDP few months later to those gang of seven here. But they weren't quite the big beasts, you know, they weren't the void Jenkins who is being home secretary. They weren't the Shirley Williams you'd be education secretary the only accidents in office. You had was Chris, Leslie who I think was a junior minister under the new labour government's. There isn't that feeling that you had back in nineteen eighty one when the has to be was formed. I remember it myself. I was actually in the Conal rooms in long acre in nineteen eighty one win ROY Jenkins. Shelly Williams, David. Oh and Bill. Rodgers set up the DP. I I was there a reporter. But as an active student, I'd been supportive of labor, but I felt that the SDP was the future. So you don't have that a class that sense of an explosion that you had that moment. But I still think that the prospects for this group the centrist group of pretty good. And I say that because in the end if you go back to the nineteen eighties. What really in the end undermined the D S T, liberal lions was that labour moved away from this really rather extremist position that it was in in the early nineteen eighties under Michael Foot. None of the strong inference of Tony Benn when people have forgotten labor in the eighties was nothing for leaving the European Community. It was also for leaving NATO kinda very very left wing. Agenda. But the fact is when Kennedy actually became leader in nineteen eighty three he began to move the party towards the centre ground. It was a very slow process. And of course, he had to fight off Derek Hatton that time, but he did move the party towards the centre ground and by the late nineteen eighties. You could see the major figures over new labor beginning to come to the fore. Tony Blair, Gordon, Brown, also had Spurs other big hana's like Bryan Gould now forgotten, but people who are much more established in the public mind and the difference. Now is that you didn't feel that's going to happen with labor. I mean labor is in very different places upon the for where it was in the mid nineteen eighties. I'm Corbin and McDonnell. It really is a much more extreme position than never have disaffection as.

Jacob we would normally kickoff with some other awful thing that you will present has done, but we're going to start off with British politics. Well, you know, you got to keep it very the story and leading most of the British papers this morning about the seven members of the labor party who announced that they would be leaving to form a group not a new party, but an independent group in parliament, including Chuck Muna who amongst other things as my MP Luciana Berger and coffee. Angela Smith, Chris, Leslie, Mike, gapes and Gavin shuker and the the line coming out of their camp and presumably other sources in the labor party. This morning is what the guardian runs with as its headline Corbin is warned change or more rebels. Will quit obviously coming less than two months before the UK leaves the union. This is a a bit of a problem for labor party in British politics better. One of the reasons that they broke away was the anti semitism row that's going on within labor. Of course. Luciana bugah has been horribly abused. But there was a spectacular own goal by one of these members who made a racist remark on television. That's right. It sort of cost Paul over the whole thing. I mean, there was a lot of there was a lot of. I mean, the the sort of left of the labour party is very active on Twitter. So dear in the announcement. There was a lot of general sort of bashing of them from that side of things, but it was it was sort of compounded. When Angela Smith said something about made a racist comment on the BBC and then had to immediately apologized for it. So that that I think sort of stole some of their own. Thunder, and you know, com- complicated their messaging, but this is going to shake up the Brexit row shortly to some degree. Yeah. I mean the other side from anti semitism the other issue. I mean, Mona is one of the the leading voices calling for people's vote a second referendum, and the fact that he finds it necessary now to leave labor suggests that he and others have given up on the idea of convincing Corbin to call for a second referendum, and it also I think increases the odds of there isn't a sort of meaningful parliamentary majority for anything, which of course, in turn increases the chance of no deal..
