When you have the various aspects of our civil society and our culture devoured. What I call this American Marxist movement. You can see the reactions are abnormal. You can see How morality is rejected. You can see How spin is accepted. You can see how a society begins to unravel and fold on itself. That's the whole point of American Marxism. That's the whole point of the book. That's why I wrote the book. We have got to push back against this. It's actually costing lives. It's undermining our military. It's undermining our police force. It's destroying our sovereignty. It's about to destroy our economic system and our constitutional system if they get the vote that they want in a month or two.

Hong Kong Teachers Union Decides to Shut Down

"The security law imposed in hong kong last summer has been the force behind change. After troubling change in the city in nebulous turns. The law says police can arrest people for any conduct. That seriously endangers national security i. They came for the protesters and activists who ground hong kong to a halt in two thousand nineteen. Then they came for the media outlets such as the pro-democracy newspaper apple daily and its outspoken owner. Jimmy lai now. It seems the authorities have their sights set on the city's storied organized labor outfits a few weeks ago chinese state media called the city's largest teacher's union a poisonous huma that had to be eliminated and hours later. We sold the hong kong education bureau. Say it would no longer recognize the union of around one hundred thousand members or about eighty percent of the city's teaches swollen wong as a china correspondent for the economist. So then the union tried to mollify the government it cut ties with several pro democracy organizations in hong kong as well as education international which is a global group of teachers unions it also announced it would form and you working group to try to promote chinese history and culture among teachers and students but despite these compromises the union still declared it was disbanding on august tenth and it sounds as if that's not the only union that's been targeted no in july we saw five liters of speech therapists union also arrested so they had published three allegorical picture books for children about sheep protecting the village from wolves and the police accused them of writing stories that incited hatred of the government on top of this over the past euro. So we've seen three of the city's top trade union leaders arrested and that really has been deeply chilling to the labor movement. More broadly this is all part of a broader crushing of civil society in hong kong.

Which is not the case, typically in a civil society.

The currents are actually committing genocide in sudan are trying to Control libya these otherwise supremacists talking about or these other jihadists and talking about white. Supremacists is a cover up in my view from a geopolitical perspective to not talk any more about the real threats. Why because there is an iran deal to signed so we can't talk about that because now there's a taliban deal that they are enforcing the way they did and more and more so. I think that our foreign policy is shocking people around the world. Who are who this shocking.

'American Marxism' Had Foresight Into the War Against Police

"Law enforcement is under attack by ANTIFA BLM, other Marxist anarchist groups and violent criminals. We're under attack by Democratic politicians, the media and so forth. Since the appearance of BLM, and it's sympathetic media coverage, a positive view of law enforcement has decreased. Particularly among minorities. Although police are now routinely accused in the media of racist targeting of African Americans and other minorities, the evidence simply does not support these charges. In fact, 81% of black Americans want to retain the local police presence in their communities, with many wanting an increased presence. Nonetheless as a consequence of this war on law enforcement. Violent crime across America surging, particularly our major cities. Law abiding citizens are paying a steep personal price. Remember this was written some time ago. Yet rather than standing up to the mob and their facilitators and appeasers, the war on law enforcement is Intensifying. There are so called reform efforts underway that are actually intended to further denude police officers and police departments. Their ability to protect the citizenry. Including legal initiatives, I would expose officers to personal harm and financial bankruptcy. Among other things, Congressional Democrats and their radical surrogates have been pushing to essentially eliminate qualified immunity and subject officers to endless lawsuits. Lower the bar for criminal prosecutions of officers. Promote local and state investigations of officers keep a federal database on all officers lower the legal standard for determining the justified use of force from reasonable the necessary And limit the transfer of military style equipment to police officers. The result of all this across the nation police recruitment and retention of plummeted. The thin blue line is breaking The civil Society is descending into chaos. Therefore, in addition to supporting police officers and police departments in any way we can, including speaking out for them. They need our support in specific ways as well. I have one suggestion. In addition to many, many that you may have as well State law permits. There's no reason why police officers should not bring civil suits against individuals who physically assault them and even the organizations behind violent riots. The result of them assaulted, are injured and then being assaulted or injured, such as antifa and black lives matter. There are a number of factors that will have to be considered, including the ability to identify the individuals in the group associations. But officers and their union should consult with a good lawyer to review the law and the facts and you We You can help by providing financial assistance specifically directed To the legal representation of police officers

"Now listen to civil society. That is not the agenda. it's net zero. We've got gotta change jobs. Employment had an income. How can you pay the bills. Or let's fundamental. And i don't push any kind of policy or any kind of solution unless i can see. It's a better world that will come out of it in terms of jobs better jobs more equitable jobs and opportunities for everybody. That's kids. that's women working hyman elderly people. They can all participate in this change and it's chimes that's not going to be a a worse world. It's one we can welcome because they've every step of seen in this change the solar china's which were kind of destroying grids now. The china agreed but has better just the other day we had this terrible cyclone go through calbury up in. The northwest flattened the town. But i have a mock greg grid day by stone sala and it survived the big grid around it with the big long transmission lines. It fell apart. So the new breeds that are emerging the margaret's that are linked together in a broad agreed working. And they're working better so we can look forward to that and there's plenty of chops had really good jobs in making these grades work and managing them how we work as precincts as neighborhoods rather than the whole city. Those neighbourhoods can each have their own little energy management system. this is the future and it is more local. it's more community based but it is not necessarily harder one way we have to go back to sort of living in a village where we don't have jobs and we have scraping to make ends meet. The this is a better world. That's emerging that we've got Have civil society drive that otherwise it will be a war between different big companies. And that's not good for anyone interesting. That toohey forest in his boyle lectures seem to be saying things along those lines as well rather concerned about biodiversity marine science as well as energy systems and so on but when it comes to civil society being civil to each other despite the fact that you go a different background because some people working in industry some people have got what color jobs i used to be called and getting them to cooperate. You've talked a lot about future industries such as the lithium valley idea of batteries. And you said one hundred thousand people could come from that kind of initiative in western australia and that wouldn't simply be a manufacturing thing because obviously to run. A major industry live that all sorts of different jobs and do see that happening. Are there signs of that. Change coming along here. There's daily signs of that happening and took forest is certainly part of that. We have got some very good entrepreneurs who now seeing that rather than being a place where you dig up and ship out which we did well and the world's needed it but we can dig up and refund and turn into really good quality products here and it's better to do here because this is where you can make the hydrogen if you have to make hydrogen and it takes a lot of energy a lot of renewable energy and then you have to ship that out to other places to make things. It's going to be very very dramatically lower in terms of its output. it's gonna be expensive. And it's going to be requiring a lot more renewable energy that we need for everything else so it makes sense to do it locally where you've got these local resources and that's i think the geopolitics of the world is going to shift more and more towards that. Saudi arabia's got a plan to build a massive solar farm in the desert turn it into hydrogen and have a massive potline that does full thousand kilometers to europe. This is madness and this is not the distributed energy system of the world. That must come. We have now very very cheap solar and wind. But only if you use it locally if you have to turn it into other things that fit with this highly centralized grades and just support the old way of doing things. Well it's based on colonialism for a start because you know that's always good for digging up shipping out. No we can actually do. This can be the center of the next economy. Not the periphery aubert. And that's the vision that i think emerging and civil society backing that all the way one last question. I've never asked you this before. But before he became a professor and before you were at stanford even handed you start. Were you in science. Theoretically from the beginning or what are was in football and cricket mostly. I went university. Play football cricket. I'm not. I was pretty good at plying with people like john inverarity in rod marsh and people like that. You know who played for stranded. I was never going to do that. But i really loved. It and chemistry is the best thing i could do to sort of merge with that at the end of my phd. I thought what. Am i going to do with this now. Because i'd also got an injury that stopped me from flying sport and also on me to do something useful with moloch and in notting seventy stephen and boyden from i in you came over on the first birthday and gave a link to where he said. The future is the environment and we need people to go into this. And i saw up by sidley on the day so that means a lot to me and i then heard pull illich on monday conference on the abc. Abc's played a big part in my life. And i said gonna gonna work with this guy. So i ended up working with him. Pretty amazing to have this young kid from western australia. Who thought he could help.

"And i determined that. That's what i would do. We also had children and it's something to treasure that children can be part of the solution not power the problem and then economic growth can also be power. The solution not the problem. And i took a long time to really work out how to do that but i think that pete arriving on john halden also when they look back in their lives. Now can see that. That was the wrought choice to have mind to try to change the world of politics by giving them options. Were far better and to really fight for them. You have to learn to be a very smart politician as well as a smart scientists. And i think that's what i reflected on listening to him in thinking. Yeah he showed us a lot about how to side bar diversity. John holdren how to save the planet from climate disaster in a difficult difficult political situation. But we need people like that to do it. And i can reflect and say you know i've had a lot of wins in this nearly fifty years since that time and have shown that you can seif cities and make them part of the regenerative future that we need rather than being part of the problem. The question is really how because if you reflect on what the prime minister he was saying the other day about decisions being made about future not in wind bars or in the inner city. It's as if you're looking at cities in a tribal way and some other people are looking at communities which can be anyway. You define your own community. It's you village at your suburb. it's your regional part. Its citizens big places you can within it. Do what the phrase says about. Okay you think globally act locally and locally can be defined by you can it not use indeed and often those inner city areas have very strong local communities than they have certainly a lot more services and urban destinations. That are very close by so you now. Studies the inner city areas significantly less greenhouse. Gas buys for energy store. Any kind they walk up. I'd take public transport a lot. And if they say cats a short distance and those kind of principles we need to apply to the rest of the city. We're producing a book at the moment called greening the greyfield which is about the middle suburbs and how they can be turned into places more like the suburbs. Because i've got a lot more service. Their lock better urban reactions. That can come from people rather than driving every way. And there's all kinds of eka villages that can be built on the fringes of cities. The technology's there. We just need the planning systems to adjust to this change. There's plenty of opportunities that are coming because net. Zero cities is the next agenda as well. We've got to do net zero cities and that means different approaches in different parts of the city's without interpreting. What the prime minister scars from his actually driving at. There's no question that you've got this split between the old fashioned industries. They manufacturing industries and indeed the mining industries. And you've got painful in towns split in a way that they weren't before because she doesn't have terribly many strong unions unionization in other words a working class. So how'd you get together in what seems to be a world with more and more conflicts and misunderstandings and yet you got a bridge that to achieve the effect that you've just described of a wife forward it's found mentally civil society issue and the one great thing i've learned in my years working in politics and with politicians and with industries to try and help them to do the right thing. Now that i'm gonna do that unless civil society is really pushing them. Civil society has enormous power in terms of the vision and the ethical view of the world. They think i've gotten pap but i do. Because in the end politicians now they need civil society to help them convince everybody. Divide for them and the social license is something that comes from civil society to those big companies so they can talk about the gas lead recovery and so on but they board are signed them..

And this is a true fear, because so many people At least 470 people that have died due to the violence and massacres in the neighborhoods and 82 people have disappeared.

That is what we are hoping for. So elections in the next two years. You're saying that that is the hope? Yes, that is the help. We don't think that the actual this entering government will be able to Mobilize the Haitian population to go to vote because they can't resolve the security point. The main forum for US China is the security problem.

To Texas now where the fight over voting rights took another dramatic turn today, Democratic lawmakers there have now left the state. It's an effort to block a Republican measure that would enact new voting restrictions, and it is the second move Democrats made to try out to derail this legislation. Houston Public Media's Andrew Schneider joins us now from Texas. Hey, Andrew. Hello. Okay, So what happened today? Republicans control the state government. So the Democrats did what they thought was the only thing they could do to block the GOP voting legislation. They broke quorum. He took a chartered flight to Washington, D. C to once again try to drum up support for federal voting protections. A Texas House Democratic leaders say that they quote refused to let the Republican led legislature forced through dangerous legislation that would trample on Texans freedom to vote. As you just said, This is a bit of a repeat at the end of the regular legislative session. Earlier this year, Democrats staged an 11th hour walkout to deny quorum to the Republicans, killing a voting bill that would have essentially done the same thing as the bills now under consideration. That was always a temporary win for Democrats, Governor Abbott vetoed funding for the Legislature to punish Democrats. Then he called a special session to finish them business, including an election bill, which led to today's action. And what happens now? Do we know what the plan is? Are these Democrats just going to stay away from Texas for? Well? I don't know how long One of the things we don't know is how long they'll stay away the special session last through the beginning of August, so if they returned before then they're essentially back to square one, and the thing is under the Texas Constitution if they're anywhere in the state, while the special session is enforced. They can be arrested and physically brought back to the capital to provide a quorum. Governor Abbott released a statement blasting their move. Meanwhile, House Speaker Dade feeling pointed out that by not returning, they're making it impossible for the legislator to vote on restoring its own funding, which would penalise some 2100 full time government employees that support the Texas capital. And would bring the state government to a screeching halt. All of this recalls the time 18 years ago, when Democrats left the state in order to block a controversial Republican redistricting effort. Then governor Rick Perry kept calling multiple special sessions. Eventually, one of the Democratic senators returned, allowing the Legislature to proceed. Can I back yourself and just talk about what is at stake here? That the substance of the legislation that Democrats are objecting to? What would it do? It would toughen voting laws in Texas, which already have some of the toughest voting laws in the country, Among other measures that would ban drive through voting and 24 hour voting, it would make mail in voting more difficult. It would give partisan poll watchers more authority at voting sites, and it would increased criminal penalties for voting mistakes. That provision garnered additional attention after the arrest last week of a Houston man service Rogers for allegedly voting while on parole, which is illegal in taxes, and Andrew Beyond being anywhere But Texas What are? What are the Democrats doing here in Washington? What do they hope to achieve? You'll recall that Texas Democrats went to D. C after their walk out at the end of the regular session to try to push Congress to enact sweeping federal voting protections, including before the People Act before the People Act, which would undo many of the restrictions in Texas and elsewhere was blocked by Senate Republicans on a strict party line vote.

"That's what civil societies do. It's amazing thing. There is no heaven on Earth. You go to countries that a majority black go to countries that a majority white can go to countries that a majority whatever they are and guess what, you're going to find injustice. You're going to find injustice throughout. The African continent. You're gonna find injustice throughout European countries. You're going to find injustice in the far East like in China. You're going to find all kinds of injustice, but you know it, and I would make this argument forever. In America. Whatever your race is. There's less injustice than anywhere else, and that includes minorities. It includes everybody. And you know how I know that. Because there aren't millions of people trying to escape America from Mexico. For other parts of Central and South America. Are willing to risk their lives on rafts. To go to other parts of the world. It's not happening. You don't see great mobility. From Americans, particularly minority Americans. That's what we're talking about here, leaving America.

Mark Levin Explains LatCRT in New Book 'American Marxism'

"And we're going to continue to talk about this on this program, and I hope you will pre order a copy of American Marxism because it lays it out. But it lays out more than that. You ever heard a lot crit l A t slash c r I t This is a Latino slash Chicano movement that pulls in the critical theory and critical race theory ideas. What's the bottom line with this? The bottom line is Americans. You're the interlopers. You're the illegal aliens, in fact, the entire existence of the United States of America. As a result of imperialism and colonialism. My white Protestant Europeans who came into this this continent and impose their will and created this country that the real natives indigenous peoples of this area. Are south of the border. And so they have every right to come to this country. They're not illegal aliens. You're an illegal alien, and so they do not accept or recognize the sovereignty of the United States because there is no United States. There is no United States now. This is also being taught in our colleges and universities, in addition to critical race theory That's what they mean by Intersectionality. So we have all these victims all the oppressed. The existing civil society that's doing all the oppressing And so everybody has a chip on their shoulder. Everybody has a reason to want to overthrow and overturned the existing society. And so that's the notion that there are two Americas, North America, South America, and they argue even there, there's really one America in the indigenous peoples, Of course, are the people who are coming into this country, not the people who are In the country. By the way, it's a footnote. That's an interesting argument from these radical Marxist because when it comes to the Middle East, they forgot about who the indigenous people are that the Jewish people well, they've only been there 4000 years, you see, but apparently they live on occupied

They quietly assist a friend, a neighbor or even a stranger. These are certainly admirable qualities that contribute to the overall health of the community. But it's no longer enough. The status counter revolution has turned the instrumentalities of public affairs and public governance against the civil society. The status counter revolution has turned the instrumentalities of public affairs and public governance against the civil society. They can no longer be left to the devices of the status, which is largely the case today. Okay, So what do we do about it? Back then, 12.5 years ago. This will require a new generation of conservative activists larger in number shrewder more articulate than before who seek to blunt the status counter revolution not imitated. And gradually and steadily reverse course. More conservatives than before.

"Labor unions, companies that collect the trash Those air two examples they used to my columns and these groups. Pressure the elected legislature to get what they want. So the Legislature maybe elected by, you know entirely different mix of people who go and cast their individual votes. These groups use their concentrated power to exert pressure and get what they want for their special interests. And as I mentioned the column, you know that works until the other side figures out. They can also get groups together and organized and pressure. And that's why I did this Batory democracy escalates and degenerates into something that becomes much more physical, because when they don't get what they want, you know, going to the streets is part of what they believe is. You know, uh The people speaking, if you will, you know, Burning down Starbucks or indeed in the capital eased the people speaking on, but I think that's very well. It's quite obviously very dangerous. You've got it may marry to learn about chili. And there was an event in October where there was street protests there was burning. I believe churches were attacked, but certainly institutions were attacked. About rewriting the constitution. It didn't start as a protest of the Constitution. I believe it said started with something to do with off rate hike or a fare hike and mass transit. But it led to a number of groups turning out and the president of the country backing down to redo the referendum. Is that participatory democracy? Yeah, That would be an example of it. I mean, you know when, when people who are appalled at the destruction of property, they burned churches. They blew up for subway cars. You know their backers, their backers in the Civil Society said. Well, you know, there's a lot of inequality in this country, and there's some people who are rich and other people are not as rich. We kind of got to this point of justifying the violence and and training the people who were doing the violence as people who were expressing Their political process, You know, and obviously they were organized and he don't quote subway cars without, you know, quite a bit of ammunition and material. And so that was their expression. And sure enough, they ended up getting the referendum that they wanted because the president felt like he couldn't use the military against them, and he wanted to try to come to peace. I mean, this has been used. It was used in Bolivia, Tonto. Blocked roads and paralyzed the country and then bring Abel Morales to power. And it's been used a lot in Venezuela with these they call them collective owes these guys who ride around on motorcycles and basically in force. So the small it also my reporting from our mutual colleague just boom are. It happened in Bogota that most admired democracy of Latin America? I believe it was last September. There were wild protests in the street. I believe the story is that the mayor was sympathetic and it got out of hand and there were killings, but that would be participatory democracy it did not intimidate to rewrite the constitution. But it does illustrate the fact that what we saw in January. 6 represents things that you have been reporting on for years about direct action. I think that's another term for direct action in the capitals of Latin America. Yeah. I mean, the people who backed this wall so called direct democracy, and I should be clear. You know, there's a lot of political scientists right now sitting in their offices, their hair standing on end because I said, no, no, no, that's not So a participatory democracy is it's just the people speaking. My point is that it generates into this because you still find when you organize your special interest. You can't always get what you want. If there's such thing as elections and so forth, and so you have to find a way to kind of run over the other voices who Don't go every Tuesday and Thursday night and organized and and and so forth. And you know they the way we express our voices is by going to the polls and voting. And this is this is something different. And you know if you think about the Mexican president, the current Mexican president in 2006 when he lost the election. He organized all kinds of street manifestations..

"But I wanna come back to this Joe Scarborough and was not he's not an outlier. He's just the most vivid of the ones laying this out there. But many people last night, there was a CNN reporter at their I can't remember her name does use a Rush Limbaugh thing reporter at I'm sorry. That's just slips in, because I listen to rush sorry about that journalists on CNN was saying this, this is actually this is helping Trump, this will impeachment will be the best thing that. Happens to Trump impeachment is exactly what Trump wants. In fact, he's laying impeachment track. I kid you not. I have heard this cable news last night, that Donald Trump is laying an impeachment trap, for the Democrats who were just going to blindly walk into that impeachment trap. By impeach the president. We can't help ourselves Trump trapped us into this. So the idea from Scarborough, and all these other brilliant genius experts who all make a lot of money going on cable news, to tell you all the things that are really important in American politics, things like Hillary Clinton, has a ninety nine percent chance of winning, and there's no chance, Donald Trump will win. Oh, Donald Trump. Okay. Well he won buddy, fixed it because he colluded with Putin. And now he's going to be struck Justice, even though there was no crime. But the cover up its cover up. Those same people who told you all of those things, they're now telling you that Trump wants to be impeached because it's the best thing that could ever happen to him. I wanna ask you peach.

Well, I- neck officials that would be voters referring to that's the independent national election commission, the body charged with organizing these elections to discuss some of these issues which owned by the physical. Scientists took to Abu Bakar mockery of the university of agree. Thanks very much for talking to Newsday. First of all, let's Taylor issue of credibility. A couple of people mentioned that person thought, well, the electoral body isn't credible. MS a charge made by the opposition. Will do you think? All we're going to have free and fair polls. Yeah. I'm quite hopeful that the community election slightly to be free fair credible. What does no sites is good? Peaceful and with loses to gracious enough to accents defeats without resuscitate judiciary. My optimism is hinge on the fact that for the past few years, the electoral process has substantially improved and all the iniquities influx of the past. Irregularities. Gradually faced out that was highlighted by a peaceful change your path for years ago in two thousand fifteen Muhammadu Buhari came in as president and yet in by-elections local elections over the last couple of years that'd be not of intimidation of ballot rigging. It's difficult to imagine. A completely clean process. New is not possible to have a completely clean process. Let I'm talking about is. The magnitude all level of no compliance. Would they look for lows hubbing gradually, reducing the because of majors. Introduced by the electoral body, undefined a whole. The range of individuals groups and organizations have been in involved in the metro reform by civil society. Nigerian activists pushing pressure to make sure these elections go well subtly and many of them utterly patent puzzle electoral process at several levels, contributing and defunct that dies of do all. Nigeria. They will pay union America. And then they have all been talking about flea could election. Goldman officials are giving commitment. And I think I have doubts that they've what they say. The only problem is that there is this tradition in Nigeria for the opposition to always cry wolf, even where the concrete evidence to support their claims. So if you lose it because it was rigging. That's that's okay, now more than seventy candidates as I mentioned, I put you on the spot and get you to neighbouring that's a little too much to ask anywhere. Mathematically so early in the morning, so perhaps you could just give us to an audience around the world. A brief idea of who the two main contenders are president Muhammadu Buhari and Tikolo Boubacar starting perhaps with the president Puerto Rico strengths weaknesses strikingly the two contenders. Be a striking resemblance, but we'll go love Lanese from the north the Muslims and the that matters in a country where they've been divided over religion of ethnicity where? Where you come from in the country can determine whether people vote. Yes. Ethnicity religion the region? Very strong variables. In election, but we have to Muslim candidates because of this silent. Dec- Sean across the major parties that polish be shifting between the north and south this out have held power for about ten years. And so it is now so to say the turn of the north the two candidates have their own strengths and weaknesses. Momodou Bahari is the incumbent clearly he enjoys very strong support from the northern half of the country. This is two thousand and three when he joined politics, he has one minute to secure, at least twelve million votes. He he's very popular in the north and yet often perceived as not having done enough in this first term, his main challenger Kubica briefly. If you would the major knock against him is, yes, he's a tycoon. Yes. He gets things done, but he's perceived as corrupt by many years. I'm besides he was part of the sixteen years of PDP rule, and some people believe that he should take the liability for the inability of the DP to puff very well. So the failures of the past have become bike for two and guarantees Pasadena's nation that he's Bellcore. Oh, he associated core prices, or there are some shady deals associated with team, which he has not been able to share called. But again, I. I believe the major issue in this election has to do with the possession of the two major candidates and the issue of performers or for months of the administration. And we will get to that. And other issues a little later on in the program. Dr Abba Macari of the university of a Buddha will be with me to discuss those issues a little later on. You're listening to Newsday on the BBC World Service with me shaima halio here in London more from James Inabukwa with his guests a lot more issues to discuss as the country heads to the presidential elections on Saturday. Now, our top story and end of an era in aviation, the European aircraft maker Airbus says it will stop making its eighth three hundred eighty superjumbo that huge double decker plane. Matt Davis of our business staff is here wise, Airbus doing this. When it's a shame, isn't it. Why does any company do anything and that is all down to money? Now, if you look at the airlines themselves, these aircraft huge aircraft are it's great when the full, but if there's an MTC, of course, the amount of fuel that the big Airbus A three eighty is burning means, that's costing them a lot more and airlines live and die on their margins are very thin. So airlines have been cancelling orders for Airbus A three hundred hundred for some time. You may remember last week. We were talking about Qantas Australian on Dave cancelled some owners the last big custom, of course, is Emirates and they've reduced their orders by thirty nine aircraft. So Airbus has decided to stop making them, which you would as a company you start making a product that customers don't really want anymore. I must say as a flyer really small planes with very narrow seats a three eighty when I got a chance to find. It was one of my favorites. And it was quite popular with travelers an Emirates. With was a big customers were saying do they continue? They will continue to be a big customer for Airbus. Just not for the a three eighty. I mean Airbus. Oh, make smaller aircraft. It's the three thirty in the a three fifty and Airbus are very key. Sorry, emerets very keen on them. But air travel has kind of changed a bit airlines Akina on more regional travel and favor smaller aircraft like the Boeing Dreamliner. But the three eighty remains a very impressive aircrafts. And as I remember about thirteen fourteen years ago, it was at the Farnborough airshow when they unveiled the a three eighty and they took us journalists on board. And it was a bare bones affair, you could see all the wives and stuff, but they also had large barrels of water there to simulate the white of the passengers, and when it took off it literally just crawled into the sky to great applause, and it was just an impressive feat vengeance hearing, but it sadly, the era has come to an end. Absolutely not many. Thanks, indeed. More for match and business stories coming up on Newsday. A reminder of other top headlines this morning, President Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort is expected to face a tougher prison sentence for fraud after a judge ruled that he had breached a plea agreement by lying investigators and an award winning Philippines.

We can talk now to Ibrahim Alabi, a lawyer and director of Syrian legal development program in London Ibrahim great to have you with us. So these two men sought asylum in Germany, how was it found out that they were intelligence officers in the Syrian regime before? Good morning. Thanks for having me. Well, the Syrian diaspora in I'm the refugee community in Germany and elsewhere is very connected and people on news travels, very far sometimes, and we we've had cases with people who have been like, for example, Australia that have been convicted of all crimes that even brag about it and say, you know, when I was in Syria was doing this combat and other cases, they try to hide it, but given the community structures and the social fabrics within Syria. It is very difficult to keep such activists that you were involved with to yourself. And there are a lot of Syrian organizations that are involved in pursuing Justice four Syrians Syrian victims. Who would have tracked these people and other people now to to Justice? And what kind of crimes are are the two men accused of well, they belong to the intelligence agencies in in in Syria. And as you probably know that the intelligence services in Syria have been accused of torture arbitrary detention and even murder an extra judicial killings because of torture.
