So how far will your budge to help Theresa May after her crushing defeat a question? I put to German EMMY p that's Christian L A. He's a member of the Christian Democratic Union. There's a certain complexity with the with the European continent. What to do because I mean, if you would have a constructive majority in the parliament saying, we don't want this. So that I think you're might be willing to talk about that. But whom to appease the one one? Trey union at the end of the world and want to have a hard Brexit to appeal the ones who wanted to dispose entrance into the European common market because they see the advantages or the one in the parliament who don't want to leave the union. So the question is what would come out of the negotiations, and to what extent that would change majorities in the parliament? And that's hard to tell the time question the upcoming European elections. Yes. There's a lot of Lexi and instructs focus these days. And nobody would know what is plan b and European leaders. Have not yet agreed on plan b have they they have nothing up their sleeve yet. And they see no advantage in scrambling to find one it's always portrayed that the union is an abstract organization critical administrative use, you officials not elected. Number sending a constituency I'm European. I have a custodial see where a lot of British citizens living. There's Rolls Royces the biggest employer. So I'm representing the Europe of an integrated economy, the European integrated society in a way, so why should be compromise on on the Irish question. We think it's benefited had been a benefit for for the United Kingdom for island that we we have a peace policy Northern Ireland. So how'd compromise on issues where we think it's also benefiting the United Kingdom possibly compromise on on on financial market why to give access to the financial markets. If institutions don't want to pay to the rules. We've also got the other opposing view in in your vows reading this in the spectator magazine. It says deep down there's a lot of Europeans at secretly admire the United Kingdom, they what they really think about Brexit is that. They're looking to see how the u k can walk away from it. And it, and it would set an example because a lot of European saw that Brussels had too much control in the EU. That means a lot. I mean, we have this nationalist populist movements in in Europe. Now, it's a question, it might be a certain reaction to globalization to a world which is fairly abstract for for a lot of people. But what does that lead to mean, we see what that lead to in in the UK to agonizing two to chaos to cook, very problematic understanding, how complex the world is and simple. So that might be a certain amount of number of people in Europe feeling sympathetic to this simplistic kinda bounces, but you see to what it leads. I mean, the country the nation of rationalism the nation of John Locke is completely blocked, and it's ignoring the economic realities also the reality of integrated society, chairman MVP, Christian Ehler, this is date.

Now, let's talk about concussion and sport rugby union and the NFL to sports which are grappling with the and football is getting involved as well with increasing concern repeated heading of the baller a central part of the game. That is show retain hardly anyone ever really thinks about it. Even can cause long-term serious damage. Professor. Tony belly is a neurosurgeon at Birmingham university in the UK. He's now involved in a study, which is brought in the English Premier League to try and develop tests instantaneous tests, essentially to see if someone has suffered a concussion the first question for him. They use saliva is it really possible to see whether someone has been concussed from this and either. Yeah, it seems. Entirely possible. In fact is. We're doing this study. And actually, we did it last year in the Rugby Football Union collecting samples from players had the ranger assessment immediately on the page and then after the match and actually we discovered that. Yes. It's possible to measure they sort of certain compounds in saliva that can very accurately. Tell us whether it can cash Kurds are not actually in a in a completely unprecedented way when say with a very high degree of accuracy, and can you build up a picture of how much had trauma an individual suffers. So you test them after one match then test them after after the next one and showing does it show the level of intensity? So what these biomarkers at the moment actually showed the the concussion very quickly. And this by Marcus stay out for a few days. The next part of the study actually starting a very interesting question duty show sort of cumulative damage, we don't know that yet possibly sort of our something we're gonna launch the three in the next few months, but will they can tell us. He's actually where somebody's having an acute injury. And if said is by Marcus will sort of reveal themselves so for for several days. Well, we actually also doing and not just by other sports as well to see whether there's an accumulation over time of biomarkers that could indicate some long term health issues and the English Premier League is is getting involved in this within the study when players tested if they've had a suspicion of of a concussion is that going to be acted on by ficials on the day. Someone can be tested on the side of the pitch. And then kept out from the rest of the game. Is that going to be a consequence of this? Ultimately what we want? We want exactly as we want. If the test is used on the pitch size and to make a very quick assessment to the player, and obviously decision that can inform the toxins whether they she stay on or should be removed to miss exactly what we want really want to get there. Obviously the momentum was still in research phase. So we don't want the results to influence decisions. Otherwise, it was a crater a bit of a circular I given. So we we're testing and the results from the era were very encouraging and see if the test is validated. They means is diverse. Exactly that's going to be used to make those big decisions and in from your expertise. Do you believe that regular concussions does cause long-term damage? Oh, I think no one will doubt. Actually, there is a link between repeated concussions and long term brain health. Obviously doesn't affect. Of everyone, obviously, the majority of people have repeated concussions absolutely fine. But clearly, there are a number of reports cases of of particular American football players in other sports. There have repeated concussions that have defended near degeneration. So clearly there is a link that well, we don't know yet is strong linkage and that was professor Tony belly from Birmingham university. And that's a really interesting study which could change the way that sports deal with head injuries and concussions. Not to. Thank you. Now to business news nex. And it's been reported in the United States that the Chinese tech giant hallway is being investigated for allegedly stealing trade secrets from American companies. Matt Davis is here about what's this all about? Well, this is in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times highway and the US department of Justice of actually yet to comment on it is reported that this is linked to a lawsuit that the telecoms company mobile brought against way four years ago when it accused the Chinese company of stealing the technology behind a robot that's used to test smartphones. Now jury in that case didn't find any militias conduct on the part of hallway but eight now all seems to be escalating last week. How way hallway employee was arrested in Poland accused of spying and lost month? You'll remember that the company's chief financial officer was arrested in Canada at the request of the United. States in relation to accusations of sanctions violations with Iran at all relates to the broader trade tensions between the US and China, which include these accusations of technology and intellectual property theft. With many of the accusations actually coming from the White House itself. Now, I'll Pasha Patel. The chief executive of prey Finian partners says on this President Trump is has got it right is always made it a part of their trade. Water say, listen, we're not going to turn a blind eye as is being done in the past. We're not going to be softer on intellectual property theft. And we're going to shut down your businesses. Your biggest businesses we're going to start arresting your people. I'm going to take an aggressive stance because it makes your country poorer when its assets stolen, even if their intellectual property assets. Right. So what next what next? Indeed, if confirmed this investigation and the accusations and actions that may spring from it would be yet another. Block to normalizing trade relations between China and the US and don't forget, it's actually very difficult to buy our products in the US and lawmakers introduced a Bill yesterday that would ban the sale of American made chips to hallway and other Chinese firms that they say violates sanctions or export control laws, and there's all because the American authorities are worried that how is products might be used to spy on US citizens and the Chinese ministry reacted to that today by saying the proposed legislation was born out of hysteria. Davis. Thank you very much..

And you know, what people don't have to know that you paid a dollar ninety nine for it. Meanwhile. The the idea of what is going on here. And it is around the world. There's no confidence vote going on for Theresa May. Now, I have tried to read the accounts from United Kingdom, and they haven't finished telling the votes yet. But I think she survives. This. No confidence vote. It is in her own Tory party. She has already said she will not lead the Tory party and the next scheduled election, which is in two thousand twenty two. If she fails the no confidence vote, it is almost certain that. They would have to go to what they call snap elections that have elections right now. And what's amazing is? Yes, all of this is the back and forth of the Brexit and her promise to go ahead and fulfill the Brexit mandate to get Britain out of the European Union and our inability to deliver on its very problematic. There's lots of arguments back and forth. But when you think about the history of regime shakeups and regimes crumbling and tumbling usually it's much bigger issues than this. Because Britain's men doing pretty well. And there's a. There's a piece by Walter. Russell Mead in the Wall Street Journal, and he's a fine historian. And he rightly points out that at the moment all around the world, the political systems are in chaos. They're breaking apart. They're collapsing. And yes, that's true in the United States. The election of President Trump represents sonny's really never happened before the Republican party is being altered. Our politics is extremely divisive. And I've made this point before it's true in the United States. And it's true around the world the issues involved here. I do not believe or existential issues. They're not the kind of thing that's all the parties, shake, and the destruction of the old whig party, which was the issue of slavery. Before the civil war. It's different. Now in France. The Macron government, they're even people who are demanding his resignation. He has completely crumbled. Reversed. Course he is now going to raising the minimum wage and lowering taxes for middle class people raising taxes for more wealthy people. Just totally surrendered the violent demonstrators uncle Merckel head of the dominant German party, the Christian Democratic Union for many years and serving for what is it fifteen years as chancellor she's gone and now and her candidate to replace her barely succeeded and in Britain, Prime Minister, may I think will probably survive this no confidence vote, but that entire political system is in turmoil. And the idea that somebody like Corbin who's anti-american who is a far out crazy leftist. I mean way to the left of Bernie Sanders would be. Like Bernie Sanders winning here. God forbid. So what is all this about? Why this Thomason? Alton this controversy right now. One eight hundred nine five five seventeen seventy six mica in big bear, California. You're on the Michael Medved Show. Thanks for taking my call. Michael you bet. And I think my question for you is why this is all happening because it's not fair the elites don't get prosecuted and the anti-establishment does. But if it's a felony to get into a nondisclosure agreement. Then what is it? When congress uses taxpayer dollars in a slush fund to pay off women who they have assaulted or been mistresses for what would you call that? Well, I would call that. I call Matt a sickening policy that they are attempting to to vote down today, and that's appropriate. When you say the elites don't get prosecuted. I don't see how anyone could see Michael Cohen anything other than an elite. He he was a lawyer for a very very big New York company. Trump's company he he drove a Bentley. He apparently is that has a real taste for luxury and high living, and if if Michael Cohen who grew up in Lawrence Long Island, which is not as a super super super exclusive. But if Michael Cohen doesn't count as an elite who has just gotten prosecuted and is going away for three years. Of course, he could be out on good behavior after before that. I I'm not sure how how you would see that. And in terms of congress. There are tons of congressman if forty members of congress on the Republican side who didn't run for reelection some of them because scandal some of them because of fear of losing. We'll be right back on the Medved show. Gold.
Europe without Merkel
"We're looking at Germany. What Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced her decision to step down as leader of the ruling, Christian Democrats. So all we know entering the post Merckel era. And what might it look like joining me on the line from Berlin is up euro chief there guys on in here in the studio as European editor Ben home die. First of all. What's this a surprise? Mrs Merkel's decision to step down. It was actually a surprise. Everybody was watching very carefully the elections in Hesse, which is one of the states in west Germany. They have elections on Sunday, and the CD you the Christian Democratic Union. Michael's party had been doing incredibly badly in the polls. And on the night. They all said did extremely badly their vote share shrank by eleven percentage points, but they actually scraped through which meant that they were able to stay in power and renew their coalition with the greens. And not even after bring in any coalition party. He's so actually the result was nowhere near as bad as some people had been expecting. I mean, there had been even suggestions that the government might have been voted out of office in that direction. It didn't happen. Now if that eventuality had happened everybody was expecting that Michael would step down. But the fact that the CPU clung to power meant. Indeed, I wrote myself it looked like she dodged the bullet despite that she decided to stand down. And that was the thing that surprised everybody that she squeaked through and Ponzi and squeak through and still she decided to stand down. And yet she's also said she intends or light to stay on as chancellor until twenty twenty one. But at the same time, there's now a contest onto lead the CD you so is her position tenable d think and who's emerging as the front runner for the CD you. Well, everything depends on who is elected party leader. Because there are three candidates who've declared one of them is Michael's anointed to add RS, rather undergrad. Cramped Cowan Bauer who's the current secretary general of the you now she is very much Marcle clone. She's very loyal to the chancellor, and she generally has a similar kind of agenda to her. She's very popular in the party. And she is odds on favor of the moment to win. But there are two others who declared Jens bond, the health minister and free with mounts who is a former head of the parliamentary group, and he is a real ideological industry of Michael's and spun this to now if either spun or Mets win, then all bets are off no one really expense medical to be able to survive as chancellor till two thousand twenty one till the next elections. If either Mansell spun our elected posse leader, it would just be completely impossible combination. She would understand that as well. And there's no way that she would persist in trying to cling onto the job of chancellor if one of. Ideological rivals gets the party leadership say ideological rivals. What are the key splits? Welsh fawn for example, walls, her most ferocious critic during the whole refugee crisis. He really was very outspoken against her sort of liberal policy of keeping Germany's borders open during the crisis, which led to an influx of more than a million migrants as we know mainly from the Middle Eastern North Africa. He's been very very critical of that. He's very very hard line on the fact that these people now have to integrate, and if they don't then they should be kicked out. He's sort of taking a very hotline. So almost like AFDC line alternates of Germany, this all the sort of anti immigration line. Although I must say since he became a minister became health minister in March. He's hot down a bit Matt's. Also, he was always very strongly opposed to Merckel and the way she essentially pushed the party to the left or to the the centre-left of German politics bay. Basically, he represents disgruntled older generation in although he's not so old himself. But he'd represents that sort of group of conservatives women the who have resented the way Mackel has tried to modernize the party. They wanted to return to its conservative roots? Now, Ben, obviously one of the characteristics of the Merckel era is that Germany's become more and more. Evidently, the dominant force inside the European Union. So the rest of Europe will be watching this with considerable interest and perhaps some nervousness. Yes. I mean, once again, European is a sort of bystanders to German domestic politics, which is becoming all too familiar. Pose for the last several years through the eurozone crisis. Of course, you could remember moments of critical decision making that depended on voices and debates like in the Bundestag in Berlin. I'm sure leaders across the continental watching incredibly closely to see what comes out of the CD you leadership contest. And then the stability of the government. If mocal really wants to stay till twenty twenty one it's quite likely that will have lots more instability, particularly within the grand coalition from the SPD. So this may well be a German government that does very little the next three years, which will be bad news for your how bad though, I mean, can you actually cope with a period of stasis where nothing much happens? Yes. It could I suppose I've just been in Paris. And I think there's a very strong French view, for example, that this is actually quite a benign period of relative economic growth. And actually, this is the time precisely the time to fix problems, particularly in the yours in for the next crisis, which may not be not far away. And I suppose the other big threat. Of course, he's the populist insurgency, which is really gaining traction across the continent. And I think certainly the view in Paris is that Europe can't afford to just sit there and do nothing has to move, and it has to respond to try and galvanize citizens behind sort of more pro European position and to try and sort of quell this. Insurgency? But I guess the reality is isn't a guy that even under the pretty pro-european. Centrist, Mrs Merkel, the German government had been pretty disappointing as far as the French concerned in responding to some of these more ambitious plans for European integration. Yes. Absolutely. I mean, I think one of the big surprises in a way has been the performance of Schultz. The finance minister here when the coalition treaty was hammered out between the city and the PD in February March that was a very strong European chat to that. Which was basically written by the Fulmer SPD leader Martin Schulz who was himself a former president of the European parliament. It was incredibly strongly pro European very idealistic really sort of buying into the whole macro Mian vision of reform and what's happened since. Then obviously, it was Martin Schulz was kicked out and the currently does, AVI. SP a Turkey not interested in European. Reform more yours and reform all of Schultz's just down to be sort of pale imitation of Wolfgang showing blah in fact, lacking showing blows vision of European integration. So he's been a big disappointment for those who are really hoping that the new German Grand coalition would respond to microns of reform proposals in a positive way. So if anything I suspect, then Ben a new Germany would become actually more introverted because the best you could hope for its continuity from European point of view with a look alike, but if it were spun type figure, you would have a headset used what nationalistic, but a more conservative, more, Germany. I approach I think that's probably right. I mean angular mogul has been chancellor for thirteen years. She's a set at Europe's top table for that long. And even though she has a self been incredibly cautious and conservative in the way that she's handled a lot of European questions. She does have a very strong kind of European. Instinct and sensibility, which perhaps successes won't have to agree that possibly the next chancellor is going to be less pro European than angular Merckel. I suppose the thing that we have to remember though, is that they're not going to be that Euro-sceptic Germany is still a pro European country. It's still very much in Germany's national interests to want to strong Europe. And I don't see us Manipur from the far, right? Fringe with the rise of alternative for Deutschland. Which by the way, looks like it might be plateauing anyway in public support. I don't see a huge shift to the right on the big European question in Germany, and I guess the irony is that even if Germany is losing some of its traditional europhilia, it's never been more powerful in Europe and more central to what's happening inside the and that will only be essentially with Brexit. Oh, that's certainly true, especially with Italy locked in a showdown with Brussels and other Member States and intentions with the east Spain, which seems to. To be fairly politically weak and Britain. Obviously leaving the big question is whether Emmanuel Macron can recover popularity in France, and whether he can bring his reforms to bear to convince Germany and convince public opinion on political opinion in Germany that reform is for real. And therefore, you know, Germany should take his ideas for your zone reform, for example, more seriously and finally guy I mean, maybe it's a little bit too soon to be writing the victories for the mobile era. But what do you think she will be remembered for him and she's been in power long time? I think essentially she'll be remembered for many things I mean, it's interesting when people sort of looked back they look at the great chance of Germany's postwar history people like Konrad Adenauer who really anchored Germany in the western lines helmet Kohl who achieved German reunification, and it's interesting. You know, she's been chancellor for thirteen years. And when you ask people, so what is she going to be remembered for people? Struggled to come up with announcer. And the funny thing is that a lot of people think it and Haman Han than say, the refugee crisis and actually that in a way might be a lasting legacy. I mean, I think she would resent that because it wasn't a hit finest hour. But I think in many ways the fact that she stood up for the idea of open borders for the idea of humanitarianism and for the liberal world order in a way in her response to that crisis. I think that says a lot about her. And I think also says a lot about how she changed Germany because I think that approach would never have happened before she had become chancellor, the German response to the refugee crisis. Will I think be remembered in decades to come as an extraordinary moment in recent European history and Harada was absolutely critical.
