Israel Attacks Gaza Strip With Air and Ground Troops

"Israel's defense forces are continuing to strike targets in gaza rockets launched by hamas from within gaza are continuing to land in and around israeli cities. Since the start of the week at least one hundred nineteen people have been killed in gaza and in israel neither side is showing much willingness to scale matters. Down is the military or rhetorically as israeli troops and tanks deployed to the border with gaza. Israel's prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu has declared that hamas will pay a heavy price. How has warned of something similar in the event of an israeli ground. Salt well earlier. We spoke to so mark lyall grant from a uk permanent representative to the united nations mark also served as national security adviser to uk. Prime minister david cameron. And theresa may first of all doesn't strike you that there's any reason to regard what we're seeing in gaza now as different from the two thousand fourteen war. Well so far There'd be many fewer casualties. It's much shorter. In twenty fourteen more than two and a half thousand deaths senate went on for seven weeks and there was a a land invasion by israel of the gaza strip now. We haven't seen that yet. So i think the possibility of an escalating into what happened in two thousand fourteen is definitely there but i think there's also the opportunity potentially to avoid going down that track

David Cameron Faces Inquiry Into His Dealings With Greensill

"Over the weekend we finally heard from a former political figure who had been brought a quiet late despite repeated attempts by janice to get in touch with them. This is david cameron. The former prime minister full during a series of allegations over the greensville saga is about david. Cameron's pat statement after news stories over the weekend. Suggesting drink matt hancock when it came to trying to a help for green. What did he have to say. So he has issued a statement saying i reflected on this at length. There are important to be learned as a former prime minister. I accept that communications with government needs to be done through only the most formal of channels. So there can be no room for misinterpretation. So he's not saying he's done anything wrong. He's just saying that things could have been misinterpreted because the system has allowed them to be misinterpreted and he thinks those things should change. I was quite interested by the timing of this statement. So you could say that Has been quite a few of the things namely one of a dominant thing on the news agenda. That may have made cameron statement a little less featureless highly in the news agenda. Also i think that would reached a stage where all the newspapers were feasting on this. And when you've got all the newspapers competing for the next new lying on a scandal that's when you know it's not going to go away and you need to do something to stop the flames Going ever higher now. I'm not sure whether what he says is going to stop the flames. Going ever-higher if i'm honest because it is something i see that he's allowed to grow as a row for six weeks hours a long time that he's thirty days is taken him to respond to

Northern Ireland assembly meets after sixth night of unrest

"Edition of the briefing with me. Andrew mueller last night for the sixth consecutive night northern ireland witnessed scenes of the kind of violence likely to prompt considerable agitation in observers with long enough memories. More than fifty. Five police officers are known to have been injured in the last week and considerable damage done to buildings and vehicles. The worst of the most recent disturbances occurred around one of these so-called peace walls which separate nationalist and loyalist communities in west belfast. The northern ireland assembly has been recalled for an emergency session at stormont today on joined with more on this by lord. Peter hain former secretary of state for northern ireland lord as you would know better than most people the good agreement did not end sectarian tension in northern ireland. There has been sporadic tension and violence over the decades since but measured against that scale. How bad is what we're seeing. Now was nothing like as you indicate the level of bombing and assassination and horror at the said. He has also troubles brought to northern ireland. Whistle the terrorism but It is serious and it needs to be addressed not just by northern ireland's leaders who displaying frankly a lack of leadership which is really disturbing but also by trade minister boris johnson and state for northern ireland who've been pretty absent from the scene in northern ireland now full quite a while and especially over this. What's your read of what's behind this because there is always the trap of reading significance which might not exist into what might just be a bunch of board young men looking for trouble. No this is that there are elements of that and they're a variety of other factors but the main problem has arisen over frustration amongst the unionist community the protestant community over the fact that there are checks and controls in for businesses doing trade. With great britain with england scotland or wales across the irish sea northern ireland of course is on an island with the republic of ireland to the cells and also within the united kingdom and within the united kingdom the rest of the united kingdom there are no barriers to trade of any kind between scotland. And or between wales and england for that matter scotland wales but they're on house result of brexit across the irish sea between england scotland and wales to northern ireland for the first time and that is the reason because the type of brexit that boris johnson. The prime minister pursued which was to break any real alignment with the european trade and customs arrangements and to go for at entirely separate of great britain but in order to make sure that the good friday peace process and the stability which has brought since ninety nine hundred was maintained. The irish border had to be kept open. Let's say the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland to itself as it has been now for decades and has become invisible with all sorts of human activity. Crossing it in their efforts not had the toxic role played a toxic role. Because it's been invisible it did in generations gone by and that's that's also the good if however that's it become the external frontier customs frontier of the european union. Then it could have ignited all those old problems that had beset and an bedeviled northern ireland. So instead what boris johnson agreed to was to keep the border open that men the northern ireland remained in the european union's customs union and it's trading markets but that's Inevitably because the united kingdom was leaving Great britain would be outside those arrangements so they have to be checks across the irish sea between northern ireland and great britain. of course. The prime minister denied this in his normal airy way At the beginning on the unionists and loyalists in particular who some of the most hardline involved feel betrayed. Because he didn't he wasn't straight with them way. Do you save in the causal connection between that dissatisfaction with the post brexit arrangements. And what we've seen in west belfast. Is it possible that there are people who are or were associated with loyalist paramilitarism. Who are leveraging that discontent to cause trouble. Yes there are and they're also criminals amongst them who drug. Traffic is and so on who've presented a police crackdown which has been quite effective in their communities to try and get rid of this drug trafficking problem and bought ignited. Not because of that so much though it's fit into it but also but primarily because suddenly loyalist protestant unionists suddenly found that Country what boris johnson told them. There are actually checks and controls strangling a lot of northern ireland businesses in a mountain of tape and naturally they see that as a break within the united kingdom because which puts northern ireland in a different place from say england scotland or wales and so they feel that their fundamental beliefs in the the union of the united kingdom northern ireland. Being within that is being threatened. And that is what ignites it. There was none of this until that issue suddenly arose around new year because the prime minister frankly say told a lot of porky's on us and didn't level with the unionist community and they suddenly found themselves in this predicament and had created Insecurity and understandable anxiety out of which these other factors criminality usa Vandalism and so on out of which that's fed you mentioned earlier a an absence of leadership both in northern ireland and in the united kingdom what would a constructive response from especially northern irish politicians. At this point look like presumably not like the one We saw her on twitter from arlene foster who went and it is a a term with which you will be familiar. Full water battery Suggesting that the violence will die quote. Take the focus off the real lawbreakers incheon. Fine that's probably not the most helpful into intercession. She could have made at this point. Is it well when you become first minister which is effective northern ireland as she is Although it's an unusual arrangement that she has joins us with the deputy minister. Michelle neil who's a shouldn't fain leader when you reach these positions you've got to speak for the whole of the community promises and president presidents naturally have their own party agendas to follow in their own party members to satisfy in any country in any democratic system. But you're trying to speak for the whole nation and that for the whole nation as well once you assume those positions and what has been disappointing about both of them and especially in recent days. Me aline fosters utterances. She's not adopted that role. She's effective acting as a party politician. A democratic unionist party rather than speaking for the whole of the the the the community across northern ireland and across the religious and political divides that have bedeviled for so many generations. And i think that's the kind of leadership we need. And we have gossips equally across the water London has been virtually silent on northern ireland. Now full rarely ever since David cameron and the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten under make this point on a on a party. Basis is a leave a politician and also it was labor secretary of state for northern ireland. A because it's traditionally been a nonpartisan issue between both the major parties. I make it. Because i'm genuinely an i've being hugely critical of the the absence of of number ten downing street of the prime minister in a way. That's attorney blend. Gordon brown were in vogue. John major's conservative prime minister before them. playing an honest broker role effectively. What they've done is said will not you know the the good friday process the peace settlement that i helped to negotiate in two thousand seven that brought the old enemies to share power together. That that's all done and dusted and therefore we can concentrate on the other pressures of government and that was fatal So we only seen a couple of sentences from the prime minister over the last few days when parts of belfast up in flames and a couple of tweets from the northern ireland secretary of state. Frankly that's not good enough. They should be convening all party. Talks in person to try and resolve these as labor shattered secretary. St louis hague has called for And they should be on the case all the time instead of effectively absence without leave as has been the case over northern ireland now sadly for a number of years lord haein. Thank you as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing. Here is markle's ailing goffin. With the days of the headlines. Thanks andrew in the serum institute.

Boris Johnson says Britain needs its own Green New Deal

"Boris johnson has always been keen to burn it his green credentials and put tackling climate. Change at the front of his government's. Agenda is done so again this week setting out a long-awaited plan to make the uk a world leader in green technology as with most government announcements. However that will plenty of spending commitments already made being re announced but the most auden criticism came from the tories who said it goes against. The party's new electoral base and could cost them votes but business secretary. Alex chama rejected this notion. This is about leveling up across our country. We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money. Other money is money that's been pledged previously on deed lost budget in in in march Book very importantly This billion pounds will help to bring in three times as much in terms of private sector money and supporting create two hundred and fifty thousand jobs but the have been some critics of this plan arguing that it really doesn't go far enough. The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry. I think what was interesting even if the money was pretty small. Change when you compare it said of the countries like franz chemmy refute these comparisons jeremy kuban late manifesto prince lansing which lici tuten sums of hundreds of billions of pounds of buried money. Guns was agreement. Deo i think it's still a political moment because as always this tension between people saying let's go green other Saying it will damage economy People in cost known areas concerned type. Slutty jim republic who worry about paying extra tax also green initiatives ambrose johnson especially saying worry we can. Tiny's these things together. We make sure. Green economic growth happens in some of the left behind redwood areas and talking about place humble months for over northeast. police o'clock. It's wonderful to have you on the podcast. What were your thoughts. When you saw this announcement here because johnson has talked a lot about green policy arisons locked summer but it fuses if that rhetoric has increase as jim said that is new money on some new policies to go with it to there is a but by i know about this was a. It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty. It's really not on track to do that. Unfortunately the classic example about chocolate changing which is provided uncertainty from best is if you look at one of the atoms. Boris johnson announcement which was carbon capture storage. Which is basically succour Boats on you bury it. The browns the tools boom cameron government promised been impounds towards that twenty fifteen a group of plug on that money or johnston's done this year's he promised eight hundred pounds in the spring budget yet. Another challenge main pounds this week. Hey presto Where we were five years ago with basically almost leg progress on cca. Yeah that's exactly. It had this sort of crisis. Feel about it really. Is you know god. We've got to do something on climate. Okay what do we do on electric cars. Oh i know will bring the target ford. That's actually relatively easy to do. It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that. The u k plan does look a little small were jim. This is one thing critics of picked up on the plan. Even who is labour's shadow. Business secretary has said it doesn't remotely meet the scale of what is needed. I think greenpeace charity have said similar things to all those criticisms fad. You because when it comes to government spending you can always make the case you should be spending more doing more radical things and as please note. This is a conservative government. This is not natural territory. Full them yet. But i think the first point to make our show on the business sexually set on the radio. This is a down payment but that will be more. Fiscal events is quite possible than the spending review. The we see next week that could be more money for example nuclear. They could say they're gonna stop negotiation sizewell c Pass station which would of course involve more money. And i think as well now. He's talking about how these provides whole sums compared to labor government beginning right now the thing to remember Tackle climate change isn't just about state. Money is also about regulation so of course the bundle twenty fifty borrowing in new pets from these laws as an example of wet government does not have to spend the money it can regulate and things happen and so many of these decisions of stems from theresa.

Rifkind a former British Foreign Secretary of served in the cabinets of Margaret Thatcher and John Major how significant in his view was Boris Johnson's return to work a Downing Street today well the government's work to perfectly well but it would say it's a very good coincidence in the sense that he is physically able to be back in the harness just as the government has to reach a decision on the fundamental question of the future of the lock out and whether we can ease the country's traditions of that is the sort of decision that really requires the prime minister's involvement as well as the cabinet as a whole do you see him as being a changed man in terms of his attitude towards the lockdown I mean he is said to it to be instinctively a libertarian and may be reluctantly embraced the lockdown but ten seems to have changed his mind I'm not sure that he's changed his mind and I think you you know you did never declared somebody with his views the same would apply to almost anyone who was prime minister is very reluctant to introduce a lock down which means the curtailment of people's civil liberties for an indefinite period of time that's a huge decision so I'm not surprised that there was a reluctance to do it until it became necessary once you've got it obviously the details different but the difficulties are not that different having got the status quo have beginning to see the policy working it's getting old in the right direction so you you then have to take that crucial decision and it's not an easy one so I'm not surprised that in his remarks today from ten Downing Street Hey he was reminding people we have to go but it gorgeous day he did not rule out of any early easing the law card I still believe that's what's likely to happen but he wanted to make sure that people just didn't assume that everything that was going to go back to normal it over the next few days of the next week because but undoubtedly his own experience of the corona virus must have changed his approach is attitude I'm not sure it would change his view on policy I am as a person of course you can find see your death in the in the in the face baited realize how your life's a tottering by somebody's uncertain their expectations without that having an impact on you as a customer but they they it if you've never got coronavirus the kind of decision you'd be having to take the day and my guess is is attitude to how we deal with it would not be very different to what we're saying there is that it would appear quite a debate going on within the Conservative Party as to the speed at which the actor lockdown should be eased well this is the big day out in the country is not peculiar to the Conservative Party are good members of parliament applies to all of us to price for you and me and every citizen of this country and now we are sitting most of the western countries I have begun a lot yeah I know in that case most of the day but with the the damage done by the virus began earlier I said since since not surprising there are beginning to ease up slightly earlier but the government said commitment at the moment is that the current restrictions continue for another ten days that is actually quite useful because over these ten days not in it does the government have the experience of what is happening in those countries that have already used to log in it also provides more time to be certain that the downward trend of the virus which we have seen now since April the eighth is continuing I may be going more slowly than we would like but it's all in the right direction will be another week closer to this be certain of that is the case and that's likely to be what happens but it also it it gives the government the time it needs to work out how you implement to the easing that they're almost certainly consider it I mean for example that people are getting back to work A. each industry is different as to the ways in which you can ensure social distancing what is going to be the best no people in terms of contact omitted with their families with the close friends is not just the in principle is that going to be eased but how could it be done what about the particular circumstances people mostly very very elderly people who are also people with serious illnesses are serious underlying health problems these are all issues of the to impact on the economy in matters of that kind so I'm not surprised you will want to take advantage of the next week Sir you remember some modicum of lady Thatcher's cabinet when the van health secretary Joe mole spoke of a move to a health care system based on private insurance similar to the American model it's seven it's difficult to imagine such an idea getting any traction today isn't it well yes but it was equally difficult in the government the just believe that was gonna happen and the government of John Major in which I served or the governments of the David Cameron or Theresa may we do have a healthy private sector in the relation to health it is a significant part of the health system but it also works very closely with an NHS indeed at this very moment quite a number of private hospitals are being used with their agreements by the NHS in order to quarantine people who have problems other than growing the virus from going into hospitals where they might get infected from the virus as well the former British Foreign Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind speaking to be before taking his daily constitutional walk in central

"Cup Twenty Six is the next United Nations Conference on climate change which will take place in. Glasgow in November is being called the most important cop yet. Justice Com Twenty five twenty four twenty three and all the rest who described but to be fair. That's an oversimplification because cop. Twenty six is the event five years after the Paris Agreement where the one hundred ninety plus countries signed the agreement pledged their future actions to control emissions Paris. The target was to hold global temperature increases to two degrees centigrade although it was estimated the Pledges made at the time would only hold them back to about three point. Five degree Centigrade since then scientists have decided that the increase should be able to one point five degrees Centigrade on since then. President trump has withdrawn the US from the Paris Agreement. Claiming acts against American interests coincidentally summations fell by about two percent twenty nineteen but this is largely due to the replacement of coal by frank gas for Trinity Generation. It's unlikely that this will be enough to meet the Paris targets over the long term given the importance of twenty six eighty s concerning to find the prime minister has dismissed conference President Claro Neil prior to the December election.

UK government hints BBC licence fee could be scrapped

"Not say. The government continued US ongoing scrutiny of the BBC and in particular folks on the licence-fee today. Nicky Morgan the head of the Department for Culture Media and Sports and as the government was going to conduct an eight week review into the license. Fees should be decriminalized and nicky. Morgan said that there were legitimate concerns. That criminalization was unfair and disproportionate. Now Katy Hey. This is already been one review into decriminalization under David Cameron. which found that? The licence-fee shouldn't be people shouldn't be realized for not paying it at a different prince. This time I think this number. Ten is quite determined to decriminalized the licence-fee Nicky Morgan Speech Day is in particularly I'm surprising. In the census things that have been reported on nervous speculation. It was heading this way when it comes to this eight week consultation period. I can't see that much rush from it. Which is going to persuade them? Otherwise I think we'll be interesting. As do they come to an agreement where they perhaps suits some type of financial rage age with BBC to make up for anyone. WHO's they're not paying the licence fee? Who is it? Move a swift car on that angle. So I think we're heading to situation where the license licence-fee decriminalized questions does that mean. If you didn't have a license fee and you refuse to pay it that your credit rating will no longer be affected. I think this details like that that we will have to find out how it pans out but I think the general sense is determined to decriminalize. I think that if you look at her other comments I think one of the top news lines to come from the speech was TV. License could be abolishment. Twenty twenty seven and this is not just about decriminalization. What is the future of the BBC? Now there is a healthy majority Tory government. And I think that you could hear from what Nicky Morgan was saying in terms of she warned that if the BBC was not Catholic Catholic. Could end up being blockbusters the if people remember on this podcast the video hire shop that critical outpaced by everything else. And eventually Ashley had to shut down as I think that it poses some interesting questions. For How do we supposed to compete. In the years Tacoma and if it it should be I think there is a sense that this government so i. I think there's a sense that this government doesn't believe that the BBC is best place trying to cater to every audience. And I might try and limit some of its remit to things that do seem to be more in the general interests Sir of information on the public roll and I suppose some of the things of as might cool frivolous programs in James are a lot of people are GonNa see this as a very direct attack on the BBC. Be Safe from the government. Decent us a fair characterization. Should I say any giggling about future velocity is no matter just arrived at the table table with a food that public helping the D. A. Calorie Count for most of nearly twenty eight days varies we. Aubrey is not long enough for several months. In this podcast this is a Scottish delicacy. This is a Dalgety Bun is basically a reason is delicious lucious I have not seen one lazily. Slovenian seems to be Made Available Twenty K.. So on the BBC. See I think the question right now is the point that is made by people who do opinion research. Ease one things you can see the net flicks Wchs Amazon Prime subscriptions or these things have changed seep think about the BBC lessons week because they now have something that they pay for entertainment but they can compare it to so people are assessing wherever it is value or not. I mean there's another problem for the BBC which is the BBC have feel that they have a particular ticket problem with the undefeated that mythic grew. Because they don't they don't sit Donna Watch. TV in the wave at POPs can pause generations did onto the BBC alternative going very hauled to tronc reach this audience and also as ways but that is creating new tensions because it means A. They'll getting into people feel that the BBC is beginning to trample commercial providers in areas like focus on also it is it is taking the BBC the BBC was living the way to reach. The students is to do stuff that people don't see the public service Madison so he has Varghese on this morning saying that you know. Let's let's look at the you know the BBC Red Store BBC news on the weekend was about Kim Kardashian. Roy Is that rookie. BBC Nava pulled Cottam reality TV again. Is that public service broadcasting and so I think the BBC face com series of strategic choices. They need to make Ivan. If one was only only thing the BBC now they have to strong stone calls to play one is the union is on the massive random the BBC's undoubtedly one of institutions are going to underpin the kind of cultural aspects of union and the thing that that is the thing that makes them feel more protective of the BBC. And the second thing is the creative industries are great. British expert for BBC became a vehicle for that that would make it fit in with on a broader kind of idea of of a post brexit Britain. I mean James You mentioned strategy before and Katie. Think to be this sort of battle that the the Government has against the BBC kind of on multiple fronts as well. I think Gordon came slightly unstuck today when he was asked whether it was gonNA continue. Its boycott after today program. Do you think as it sort of ramps talks on the BBC. The boycott will have to end. I don't think the boycott will have to end that. This government even the people making that point. I taking this government views them as things that Patinkin particularly linked up. And I say that is not. The government is refusing to send administers on any BBC. Show is a specific show. Now you can criticize that and say Otani. They should be as people made the point in this week. Giving them having terrorist incident. You should be sending people up on these things but I think that the way this number ten tends to work on media is they will do enough usually elite to send a minister onto a similar show or show in the same realm pabst little bit chide the producers on the show they don't like but was it to make the point completely hiding scrutiny. So you can see it in the sense. I thought it was interesting this week for example and this isn't the BBC Pref- had brochand going on the world at John runs deep regret. I think that this week you have good morning Britain the program so it's not just the BBC issue. I think that's probably worth pointing out but give Briseno. We're not getting any ministers on that program doesn't ongoing spat there but this morning got particular talent. So I think that you probably have to separate the two your coaches and I think they all still sending people into shows clearly annoys some people but I think from the number ten perspective they are linked because one of the things about the BBC's it doesn't Operate in the way you would expect it to so it is not a single model. All individual programs fight their corner and they approved very adept at the abortions is team play off against each other. Join the election campaign portions. Andrew Maule no Andrew Neil in the BBC and so. You can't do that one if you don't do that. One at the beginning of this year didn't give a traditional custom race into each day program or to a drama but he did an interview with BBC Breakfast which then led the BBC bulletins because they were news lines in it so in a way because it partly because of the way she's from the BBC Conseil when you call on this year you can't Ernie bit of the BBC unless you do what you want to say the BBC will always be ways to go round particular programs. I mean not is going to challenge the Ucla Whiter how to respond to.

UK formally leaves the European Union three years after Brexit referendum

"I expect that dates the ladies shop the most incredible that a a is I got to try the people getting ready to celebrate a goal I lose with a country we across route the people we frequently establishment it's amazing that you've done this walk our audience through your your throughout the nation right here today nine from the most people know you and know your what you've done but walking through how many years have you worked on this project I first became concerned about what the European project man I didn't even know what globalism walls in those days but I first became concerned about it about the bureaucracy was winning a battle of a democracy about a one of the tires to a single currency dollar lady by Germany oppose worried about it back in ninety nine state of Illinois is buddy today I feel like cattle I just cannot stand aside and do nothing so I've now been campaigning on this for twenty seven years I'm also the father that pretty much full time pretty much seven days a week now do we went back the other day on the show and played your maiden speech from the European Parliament way you sounded and looked exactly the same as you do today shore just tell just tell our audience a little bit because I've I've heard in the press about some of the interviews you've given in the recent days about you being in the parliament how long you been there whether you're going to miss it all in all and of course you know that that's it for you in terms of the European Parliament but it's already to yell at about that and a little bit about what you see happening over the next year given that this this transition period for brexit well I walked into the European Parliament in nineteen ninety nine the three of us from you can collect it and we walked up the steps we've never been to the building before that we live in a Brussels before we did but what was the galley what we were doing if we walk through the door and that official that I'll I will let me pay easily so badly so we just got a political asylum with the beginning and then I woke up those same steps in June last year a little twenty nine of us I'm I'm not shows how the center of gravity in British politics I shifted what was considered to be we at all mad mad house become the mainstream so people can develop this country I guess that's the victory that I've been a Paul Solman unsettled and supported me although but if anyone one of the night I live in PM London time I'm gonna be in parliament square with a huge huge part of the old eyes which I call white full what was the night is the point of no return we are leaving this political union we are leaving the globalists supranational structure we never coming back about twenty what I was battle Wednesday on my last day in the debate before they threw me out of the chain but because I laid the union Jack them but never your bloody flags and leave I think she said rather the thought is that right now with the company what we did is we went straight to the buff okay okay yeah yeah I know we we try to get you on the show but but let me the better is a lot more level head said maybe the maybe another day yeah I think I was slightly over trained on that particular day but what was interesting was just listen to the speeches of a creek without power because they're all now saying who next alphabets of gum next alight journey will be sent rex it marks the beginning of the end not jealous of the European Union but if the whole global is project you know where big business big politics big banks that want to control our lives through big bureaucracy I we want nation states free markets free that would let let's say and I think we're winning how do you what happens in the next year how do you actually make a good because today is the beginning of it but I guess December thirty first is when the heart out is correct yeah I mean look I think in terms of history today's the big moment the rest is the tiles that the tide of course is very very important Boris Johnson I suppose because he's scared of me is has laid the right promises is now saying all the right things to be sticks to his promises that great I mean backing six they also the referendum I think people so I packed up my tends to go away what I'm saying to that everybody is all I am going to be that through this next process through this transition period through the next phase of the guys the engines are I will praise the prime minister the rooftops and he gets it right but I will sound the alarm if he gets it wrong so I'm gonna be on that case let's talk about praising alarm I want to mention you know about this globalist project and why this is such a important day in and Nigel I'd I needn't remind you that about the opposition party in the established order on the same day the night before I actually in accomplishes breaks it it's also going to be the acquittal of Donald J. trump by the established forces over here it's it's so amazing that would happen on the same day but I want talk about why way for second in this pandemic in coming out of Wuhan China but you know tied to the one belt one road in tight to the globalist projects and I think we've had two cases now in the United Kingdom why why his and a shock folks in the United States and also this pandemic it coming out of how we have a whole show no dedicated just that what what are your thoughts about that tight to globalism okay well let's start off with wildlife what is astonishing is if you look at the people who is all the advisory board to walk away in the United Kingdom what do you find you find the former bosses old L. cools little old friend of Tony Blair as friends of David Cameron's people around big businesses there on the gold you find people who were all confederation of British industry one of those globalists I have a group that all of our country they've been serving on the board you even find that this is astonishing former senior bosses of all civil service to be all the while lays bold I'm most stunningly able you find David Cameron our prime minister it was made to resign because look like that but it is now official interlocutor putting the Chinese and British governments Alice happened is Chinese money has corrupted completely corrupted the system and Boris Johnson of gone with the fly will miss one we've gone with what everybody around it is telling and I think it is into the judgment but one of the last judgment so I've ever seen in my life in this country I'm hoping we can buy the mechanisms are less it will just America that's not happy with this think about Australia right there in the call to make but he's very deeply intertwined with China even value in twenty twelve band while away from that digital fiber

British government loses key vote on Brexit timetable

"But this is a little bit of a bass that we find ourselves in we've been listening to a lot of back and forth there in the U. K. parliament Boris Johnson the prime minister winning one and losing one but losing a big one in the sense of we don't know exactly what happens next yeah that's exactly so two votes happen the first one rather quickly and that was basically the U. K. parliament voting to accept his brexit Boris Johnson brexit bill that was followed by another one and that's where Boris Johnson lost and that was basically to fast track the brexit law we did hear from Boris Johnson is still committed to it but he also did say we now face further uncertainty the European Union must now make up their mind so that's basically where we want Jeremy Corbyn a leader of the labor party we did hear from him he says he wants a reasonable timetable so that's kind of where we are at this moment Dr Sam now to pop off has been kind enough to sit through listening to the U. K. parliament stay with us president of empire global ventures on the phone from Washington DC you've worked around the world with different organizations based on these two votes and based on what you've been hearing Sam now what we've just heard that Boris Johnson first victory as prime minister spells the end of the year of the United Kingdom you just heard Scotland say now that there's brexit we will seek independence again as we did a few years ago with the referendum and this time they're likely to be successful Johnson is also created an institutional structure that puts a red line between Britain and Northern Ireland and so there is a possible future Northern Ireland is no longer part of United Kingdom so just understand what's happened in the last ten minutes Johnson got his first victory which may have cost him the European king of the the United Kingdom and so what do you imagine happens next what is Europe's play in all of this the E. U. has been more or less letting this play out you know they've largely yeah they wait in it at various times Boris Johnson saying premise support center thing he will go back to the E. U. and then report back to the parliament what do you imagine the E. U. stances here do you sense at all has been very consistent from the beginning they want a clear signal from Britain about how brexit is to be prosecuted and then once Britain has sent a clear message you will decide at this point hi it would not surprise me you will give Britain a few more a few more minutes to manage it to manage its internal issues now that the parliament has asked for a period of time go through this but that raises another key issue it's not just this is going to take longer it's that the parliament is going to scrutinize the agreement and propose amendments this is exactly the same thing is happening in the United States right now where the executive branch with president trump is saying that the legislative branch oversight of him is functioning as a lynching what we're having is the executive Boris Johnson fighting it out with the parliament and Boris Johnson is going to go to Brussels and tell the European Union really you should give us more time but I don't mean it well it's interesting to and I you know get going back to a Bloomberg live blog you know there was no mention of pulling the bill there's no mention of an election which I believe Boris Johnson had said he would maybe do if he lost this vote so no mention of that yeah I think it's dark I think what you said and I kind of had a positive to set at that you know the undoing I think it's the final undoing of the British kingdom in terms of how we know it or have known it for so long does the United Kingdom the British monarchy and empire was an analog construction what we're seeing now is a did you build a digital extrication of of smaller units that can efficiently or less efficiently function within a wider market old traditions are being set aside one of them one of them has just been unraveled to our ears that's an extraordinary thing we heard from Scotland and that will go the history books about Boris Johnson and David Cameron who started this right and so let's recap sort of where we are we've had two votes in the U. K. parliament today one essentially the parliament really for the first time supporting ideal put forth by the prime minister in this case Boris Johnson it to leave the E. U. subsequently a vote against the timeline that prime minister Boris Johnson had recommended and put forth where that leaves us interestingly is not necessarily where we expected to be Carol because force Johnson had made noises about either crashing out on October thirty first which by the way that's next week it's sort of interesting to think at least for me I thought oh wow I cover thirty first really is coming up very soon but also this idea that he would call for a general election he is done none of those things yet he is essentially said we're gonna look for an extension a short extension to get this deal that parliament has approved done now that is contingent on a number of things including as Dr Sam that a puff laid out the E. U. getting on board with this notion of agreeing to a deal and agreeing to some length of extension and we don't know exactly what that is gonna look like Sam I am curious of what does this mean what is the New World order going forward with the UK potentially a resume out of the European block maybe northern our our Ireland going off on its own as well how does that change that global landscapes particularly over Europe well Scotland and Northern Ireland but I would develop their own national identities and and proclaim them but the the loss of Britain from the European Union and the loss of London as the European financial capital that has already sent shockwaves around the world so as a result of this New York City has emerged as the undisputed financial capital which has benefited the US economy tremendously there's been tremendous capital flight and human capital flight from Britain to the United States in the financial sector but the what it is this voluntary decision by the people of Great Britain to leave the European Union the headset all of this in motion seventeen point four million Britons said they wanted to leave and today for the first time the house of Commons passed a bill that will allow them to do just that

"david cameron" Discussed on Fareed Zakaria GPS

"We'll begin today's show where this wild week began with Britain's Supreme Court finding bars Johnson's actions unlawfully and with the US House of Representatives Launching Orange Beach Mond inquiry into the actions of president trump impeachment lack Jack discussed both in an exclusive interview with Britain's former Prime Minister David Cameron then we'll dig deeper or into the other nation at the center of the impeachment inquiry Ukraine and Applebaum who's just back from Kiev. We'll explain the connection between Ukraine in crane. Animals also Iran secretary. Tom said this week of the UN the US made real progress progresses uniting the work to get tough on the Islamic republic with this terror onto the table to negotiate or provoke it even I and Israel's inconclusive election results will DB Netanyahu be able to form another government. I'll talk to the New York Times. Is Tom but first. Here's my take nick whether you think it rises to the level of an impeachable offense. Can we all agree that what president trump did was profoundly wrong. He he pressured a foreign government to dig up dirt on his political opponent. This is very different from the Russia investigation which was at its core about whether it's a candidate trump it colluded with the Kremlin in the case of Ukraine. The president is accused of using the awesome power of the United States power that could make a life or death difference for Ukraine to serve his personal political gain. Sadly it's part of a pattern of violations of democratic norms and perhaps laws the Muller Report Reveals Donald Trump actively sought to curtail or end the special counsel's investigation trump has allegedly dangled pardons for officials who might break the law and carrying out his immigration agenda. He is repeatedly lambasted. The investigative agencies agencies of government or even worse pressured them to investigate his political opponents. He has ignored congressional subpoenas and refused to turn on over documents. Trump is a particularly egregious example but his misbehavior fits a global trend after Boris Johnson engaged in a political maneuver suspending parliament that Britain's supreme court unanimously ruled was unlawful India's Narendra Modi has spoken and governed in ways that if terrified his country's minorities and eroded its secular culture Philippines president do territory has praised extrajudicial killings killings and leaders like aired on in Turkey and or Bundy and Hungary have managed to change the constitution to assist in one party or one man rule. ooh. Many scholars and writers have chronicled the Democratic Recession Roberto Stefan four and Yasha monk have compiled data showing that across what's the globe enthusiasm for autocrats has grown between nine hundred ninety five and two thousand fourteen there were large increases in the sheriff people who would like to you see a strong leader who does not have to bother with parliament and elections growing by nearly ten points in the US almost twenty points in in Spain and South Korea and about twenty five points in Russia and South Africa. Why is this the best I can guess is that we're living in in times of great change and in this world people feel insecure and anxious. They don't believe that existing institutions lead sore established ideologies are serving them well of twenty seven democracy survey by Pew a majority in twenty.

Anglo American institutions this week pushback against actions by then nations populace leaders. I the British Supreme Court found Prime Minister Boris Johnson's suspension of two had been unlawful awful then the US House of Representatives launched an impeachment inquiry into president trump. I wanted to talk about both events with my first guest David Cameron. This is the first television interview for the former British Prime Minister the man who called the brexit referendum his new book is for the Record David Pleasure to have you on with you first question which must always be asked is. Do you not regret putting your country through the nightmare of of this kind of brexit drama. Should you not have just never had this referendum in the first place what I feel huge sadness and regrets about the situation. We're in now the difficulties we face. I mean they will come to an end. We will solve this but when I look back as I do in the book multi have regrets of things I could have done differently. Perhaps a better negotiation different timing but I feel I felt then. I still feel now that a referendum was inevitable. There was not just growing political political pressure because we'd had treaty after treaty and Power After Power Pass from Westminster to Brussels but also there was a genuine problem with the development of the euro the organization where you were it was changing front of our eyes. I felt it was inevitable. I wanted to US oster have a renegotiation a referendum to deal with these issues and keep keep us in clearly failed in that endeavour but the attempt was genuine Tony Blair. Your predecessor says the country is clearly genuinely divided then confused about what exactly it means to to to do. Brexit is it hard is soft and that's why there should be a second referendum do agree well. I think the first I think what happened is for the prime minister to go back to Brussels to negotiate a deal for us to carry out the outcome of the referendum which is to leave and become as I put it friends and neighbors and partners with the European Union but not members is not the choice I would make. I fought through everything into the campaign for us to stay but the result went another way. If we can't get that deal we are still often three years stock and one of the ways of getting unstuck is to have a general election or to have a second referendum so my views. We shouldn't rule those things. I've they may be necessary to get us out of the situation but the first priority for Prime Minister Boris Chris Johnson and he has my support in doing this is getting a deal in Brussels in order for us to leave friends neighbours and partners but you say in the book that Boris Johnson didn't really we believe in Brexit that he actually adopted this position purely for his political advantage but what I explained in the book is that when I called the referendum unwanted wanted Boris Johnson on my side I said to him you know you've never previously supported leaving. You've been a eurosceptic. You wanted reform. You think my deal L. of changes important though I thought they were was not enough but that's not a reason for leaving he made his choice and I talk about that in the book but now he's prime minister. He has this huge responsibility. I want him to succeed in getting a sensible deal with the European Union and taking that to the Commons and passing it but I think the one thing we ought drew void is leaving without a deal. I think that would be bad for our economy bad for the United Kingdom bad actually for the European Union to and so if we can't won't that deal we'll have to find another way of getting out of the situation into which we become stuck you took the Conservative Party and tried to modernize it you you came out very strongly in favor of a more inclusive party diversity gay marriage it's it reminds me a little bit of George W Bush who initially tried to create a compassionate conservatism conservatism and both those parties the Conservative Party in Britain and the Republican Party in America have been taken over essentially populace why don't complete except that a comparison yes. The Conservative Party has is running a government that wants to deliver brexit which is not my approach but actually it is still a conservative served party that reflects the changes. I made over eleven years of reading.

"Has been defined not by life chances and sociability but by austerity and Europe and I do wonder if we should actually think of it as part of a causal salchow chain. I mean you could argue that crisis. One lead impart to crisis to austerity in the rhetoric of division that he and Osborne fostered were arguably significant drivers for the results of the referendum. I do think the I think the two great episodes of his premiership all absolutely linked to think that austerity charity was not the sole Coles of the referendum outcome but it was extremely large lawn component of it there was a sense of alienating. I'm from Whitehall and anger about what happened to doing standards and anger about public services health schools and and at the same time there was an English nationals north and south including prosperous parts of the UK anger about immigration which in turn time was maybe reflected some of the kind of warfare rhetoric of the Conservative Party and arguably you could take that link a step further you know one of Cameron's wins is in his eyes were clearly be the Scottish referendum in two thousand fourteen protecting the unity of the UK. He thought that had settled a question for generation but but brexit now may well reopen that question and amid that there's even talk about the increasing likelihood of a united Ireland. Is it possible that there's almost domino effect hair in which cameron doesn't just Davis. Es leaving the EU but potentially is responsible in some is the breakup of the Union yet. That's absolutely true and I remember how concerned at one point he was that he's going to lose the Scottish referendum and that he was going to be responsible for the break up of the Union and I think he privately thought that was going to be a resigning issue as well and I think that those two threats threats to the Union Northern Ireland and the Union Scotland Arial but we don't know how is going to play out they all of which explains David Cummins sleepless nights but he outlined this week in interviews since since his premiership ended but if we think back to the kind of fresh-faced David Cameron who you met all those years ago who was trying to woo the Guardian his his kind of driving force back then was to modernize the Conservative Party. He wanted to change it. He wanted to fix a broken brand and here we are in two thousand and nineteen. We've got the most right wing cabinet. There's been in decades twenty-one stories on the more liberal wing of the party. Arti Cameron swing arguably have been expelled all of which I might be being a bit unfair hair all of which you can. I'm Tracy back to decisions made by David Cameron. Say is like a say in the end that he's failed on that initial driving ambition Russian you can discuss still historians do this for a freshman is the role of the individual history how much they're shaped by. Vince buffeted by events and how much they can turn shape those events and certainly the financial crash is not his responsibility the way he responded to it is and the degree the of Euroscepticism nationalism inside they English Conservative Party predates him about how he dealt with it. is his responsibility. I think he could pave different on both issues and that is ultimately his legacy the way he handled these two issues is he in itself. Admits was it was a failure. I don't how much she's she absorbed that failure there is a deep deep deep personal responsibility at think. He's fully absorbed here. Patrick as ever.

"The changes we had to making year two and year three and four it might have been better if we did a little bit more a bit earlier. Uh when you have that sort of window of permission from public and fences if austerity totally dominated that period but whether the policies that he was achieving in the meantime on that perhaps did fit with the brand that he had started out with for instance on same sex marriage you require open -Ly Willing to confront considered a conference on the issue and say there is no harm some unloving somebody of the same sex in same ways you loving someone who the different sects and to be able to say that to a Conservative Party conference and get mine quite quite an achievement conservatives believed in the ties that bind us that society is Stronger Congo when we make vows to each other we support each other so I don't support gay marriage in spite of being a conservative I support gay marriage because I am conservative to their aspects what he's doing in tune with the kind of person he wanted to be in two thousand seven and eight but whether there was no follow through policy and obviously the big example of that is the big society which was rather tenuous if not vacuous concept of I'm trying to have more community entry activity though it had been a huge theme outside government-approved into Whitehall it sorta seemed to disintegrate integrate in the hands of Civil Servants and ministers and ended up with five million pound empowerment fund or something of that kind not gonNa make up for the tens of opinions of Canasta local services and he gradually dropped it as an idea basically disappeared and given it was one of your foundational principles by telling. Let's talk about the second crisis that you highlighted the question of Europe. David Cameron still says that the hat to be an e referendum. Is that right. I think that's going to be the great argument about his legacy. Gacy was whether there was an absolute necessity to do this. his bowl position is though he regrets the consequences of the referendum he still jilting so it was the right thing to do and if it wasn't done then he was going to have to be done later one deeply sorry about all that's happened. There isn't a day that goes by when I didn't think about all the decisions made and all that has followed but when I go back to that decision that Britain's position needed to be sorted and we needed a renegotiation and a referendum I believe then that was the right approach. I think he's really not straightforwardly and I think he got what am captivated by his ability to win referenda. He felt he won this referendum on electoral reform convincingly he won the Scottish referendum thought he was. GonNa get Lucky three times am. Didi told European leaders at the last council summit food referendum that he's a winner and he was going to be victorious but he didn't just call this referendum because he thought he could win. Even they clearly he was very confident he he called it because he was having defeat after defeat in parliament at the hands of dozens of eurosceptic Tory. MP's he he was losing votes to you care. I mean you kept topped the polls in two thousand fourteen he had. MP's who later defected from his party like mark reckless and Douglas Carswell he were plotting to try and disrupt things when Britain had to lift transitional controls on immigrants from Romania and Bulgaria Korea. I mean could cameron really avoided a referendum in that situation. If you keep feeding the eurosceptic beasts red meat you'll come back and ask for mole because it went go and slouch off into the shade and Nikki slips it regards whatever rate red meat is given as a kind of order before guest the main costs the main course is always leaving European Union and that's just a way of how you handle this kind of Euroscepticism mm-hmm and the end I think he always appeased and fed it in the process and he when he went to Europe he had had a row. AB- about you'll have a rabbi using the veto turow it make demands about free movement and he was constantly feeding this idea. You're was a a roadblock block to success in the UK economy turn around public opinion in a referendum campaign in when you allow allow something to become so embedded in the public psyche I mean who the did facebook rebellions in his own party but it is I think at face off and a he was advised as much by Nick Clegg by all's boone and by G-O-V so concrete three people claimed who told him and warned him of the consequences and the risks involved. How should we judge the way but Cameron handled the campaign. Well I think some of his explanations of what went wrong with the campaign that have come from his book all quite violated one is the raised expectations too high about what the negotiations would achieve and I think he should have been more aggressive about the kind of Islamophobic campaigning that was conducted by believe campaign because he's been quite clear now in as book to say that the walls Islamophobe campaign if we're prepared to accept gory of Germany and Sweden are prepared to accept unlimited numbers news of young males from countries and cultures where women are at best second class citizen the hidden messaging about Turkey joining the European Union was if you vote remained you'll have a Muslim next door and he said said as much in terms but it didn't say that kind of thing in the campaign and he stuck this rather dry message about economic threat of leaving the European Union and never really went off it when we're hearing from David Cameron this way having not heard from him at all really since he resigned as you've said he doesn't seem to disturb by the first major crisis if you like his response to the financial crash crash and austerity but he clearly does have regrets over what happened in terms of the EU over when you're describing I almost feel like those as regrets is still more about party and political differences than about the country will I think it's not dissimilar in Antwerp to Iraq and the nature of the apology that has been given a literal seat incredibly different issues in scale and global scope but a what he's saying in essence. He was not wrong to take the decision to hold the referendum but he regrets consequences in the same way. Tony Blair says he was not wrong to go to war in Iran but he regrets the consequences and it's it's away of not quite owning the responsibility had become room won the referendum had it been remain a he had a plan within days to unveil what he called the life chances strategy this was going to be the beginning of his kind of legacy. Agassi building period. I mean interesting outspoken to the author of that paper and tried to persuade him to leak it too. Many a time of interested people are in it now now. It just makes me wonder if the reason that David Cameron regrets Europe a NAS teraty is because Europe finished his career. I'm I'm prevented him from laying down a legacy that may have been more in line with a- David Cameron you. I met years ago before he even became Tory leader. Yeah I think he's a great thought. Experiment has not done enough is to what would David Cameron of Don if it remained prime minister because I think you probably be standing down around now so we would have had a three more years of his leadership. I think issues such as social mobility would have come to the full whether he would have publicly declared clad. The earful sturdy is over whether he would have said. I've got to accept y away very large minority of people feel so anti pathetic towards Europe. What does it mean is the relationship between austerity and people's anger about Westminster and Whitehall. I just think it would have been fascinating to see how he would have developed and then I think at the g seven g twenty he would have been a a very significant figure one of the most experienced politicians and put 'em pulled off a huge trick in beating them eurosceptics back back. You would have been seen as a book against populism as your sliding doors moment patrick. How had the referendum gone the other way fifty to Romaine forty eight leave.

"Today David Cameron is back but what's his political legacy and he's getting on the global climate strike the winter. You've been covering Westminster for the Guardian and observer for more Jordan three decades. You were political editor for ten years. Do you remember the first time you heard the name David Cameron in the I heard of him was when you become an MP end he was advising Michael Howard on how to deal with Prime Minister's questions questions and I remember having lunch with him knowing he was an up and coming. MP In the bit that I remember most about it was his sense of politics was slightly. A game. He kept on saying is really all about what you can get away with what you could get away with. What does that mean well. The promises questions for instance if you can ask her a question which is totally unfair totally distorts what the your opponent has been saying doesn't matter as long as you get a quick hit on the nightly news with that politics was a game for David Cameron. He definitely did not win here. It was an MP who set out to be a modernizer to rebrand his Conservative Party as Greener more compassionate and socially liberal but as he reemerges this week to promote his new book it's clear but his permission will be remembered for two era defining changes to British Society Society austerity. I'm brexit from the Guardian. I'm initiative Astana today in focus. Where did it all go wrong for David David Cameron project when we start thinking about now this episode we wanted to know what David Cameron was thinking. Are the very start of his political career. We were pretty surprised to find that he had documented his thoughts in his very own Guardian blog starting when he was a candidate for an pay. It's been very interesting to read it back. I mean you talk about him seeing politics as a game in one blog he suggested dirty tactics for pm cues in others. He tries to present himself as it's a bit of a laugh there's one. I'm not kidding about erectile dysfunction in which he talks about stiffening the resolve of government. I'll let you look on up and in another he compares stories to the Skoda Making the point. Even terrible brands can be revived and we can week it feels houses if he does keep coming back to that theme branding was his driving force back then all about modernizing the Conservative Party. Obviously Z. CAME FROM PR incense from television and I think he did listen a lot to posters. He did whole Tory party in opposition any party's endlessly reading runes about how people view the party what's wrong with it. What was remarkable about his early speeches in his attempt. Calmly they all about Conservative Party itself. They were much less about policy that we can do to show show this off. He thinks Britain's best days are it is Shane writing. This has told different of C. talked about a limited state low tax about responsibility but he managed nice to frame those very traditional Tory themes in kind of modernized context and very good at thinking of the right aphorism such as rollback state but not rolled back society very clever thinking modern ways of trying to attract people to what were quite traditional Tory values and use modern technologies analogies because it wasn't just guardian blog he later had something called Webcam rented.

"Have to remember about Putin that he feels and there's always felt that the western intelligence services were undermining inning his authority and interfering with his efforts to rebuild the Russian empire and so this is his revenge he he saw the weakness in the in the Western in systems and he went after them and the first and biggest target well not I but the biggest target was the United States he used on US techniques that leave us in the Baltic republics and other places and they were very successful the UK right now is a mess if it's not a mess it'll do till the mess gets. Let's hear will we look back on Brexit as the first probing of the Russians to see if they could not affect a democracy you and the Atlantic Alliance. I think they didn't have to do that much work in on Brexit. They did try to influence the brexit situation but I don't think that they had really prepared for it that much because nobody really had seen it coming. I mean when when David Cameron called for this referendum although he said he would do it. It was one of those things that people go do it. I'm sure it's going to do it then he does. It and he was sure that everybody would vote. Let's stay in Europe at least most people would but no the result it comes out and it's based on all kinds of things resentment of rural populations fears of migration this kind of thing thing and the Russians the Russians tried to feed that were they really went into went to work on the United States that that we see very very clearly from the Miller report this whole idea now that somehow the mullahs report was some fabrication irrelevant. It's very clear it's very very detailed. It's very unequivocal. The Russian set out to have a profound effect on the elections in two thousand sixteen team. I don't think they thought that trump would win but they thought they could undermine the authority and the credibility the legitimacy of of Hillary Clinton by the Guide to games that they played and then when they saw that trump could win of course they put as much effort as they could into into supporting it before we send you back to the Schanzer Leeza at the conclusion of your brief trip home.

I think he is a Democrat although he his authority is very powerful but I think that he understands the kinds of things that we're discussing miracle also although she's on her way out. She's is a lame duck. She's still a powerful influence for democracy we saw in. Spain people have been hanging onto democratic institutions country. Still Remembers Fascism for what it really was and I think there are signs of resistance many signs of resistance and people a lot of people thought that the European Parliamentary Elections a few months ago would be swept by these far right parties and that didn't happen in in fact the parties that are on the rise are the green parties in Europe because in Europe unlike in the United States the environment climate change those are huge and vital issues for voters at many levels but particularly for the young people of Europe and they just basically don't want to inherit a world.

"You take David Cameron pushing through gay marriage people forget actually more of his own and peace faced against it in for it. And yet it it becomes. In the common history, a Tory policy has that branding Yavuz. Yeah. I think I just wanna say warm if the conservatives pushed through a deal, and then there's election all the bucket it. Then I think that it will be a no brainer for labor to play. A voter suppression strategy on the sixty one percent of leave voters who want to know deal. You will give him vassal state stages by Jacob REEs mode. Theresa May boys Johnson. They all voted for it. In the end. We didn't is quite an effective electoral strategy whenever it comes. But going back to Jim's point about the north millions essentially one of the things I'm really trying to do is to explain to people. This is these places are not monolithic. Well, there isn't is a political center in those places you'll find pubs the proverbial weatherspoon's in which it's you keep him on corner momentum another corner, and this culture war between working class people. It's not middle class working us. Those people have actually been going on for some time. What's missing is the guardian reader? No, actually, if you look at a politician like Mary Korea you stood in to the. The leadership in twenty. I think twenty sixteen or twenty fifty one of the Merri creek still still feel action twenty fifteen she's the Wakefield MP. Jeremy went to Wakefield to do the let's unite Britain a move on speech. Her constituency is sixty six percent leave and yet she is supporting remain the people's vote. And I think that tells you that somebody with a political ear to the ground in a place that is complicated as it says on Facebook, it's complicated. There are working class people on both sides. There are viscerally almost committed to that positions on remain. And and leave on the question in a place. Like Wakefield is can you maintain the roof forty-nine percent that somewhere sublime dot M P has despite the sixty six percent vote for leave next. And what we saw in twenty seventeen is that it was meant to be the brakes that election and every day on the radio is Brexit, Brexit Brexit. The public is really board of secondary angry about it. And if people start raising other issues like schools, and hospitals and investment and all the rest of it. You know it. It's conceivable that labor could in general election situation. Do pull off the same trick again. And with even more resentment about Brexit going badly. So the Tories then even have a very strong line about what at least, we're sorting Brexit because clearly they are starting to. So we've discussed the reasons why the conservative party is really not working up an appetite for general election right now. But whereas perhaps the labor party really is, you know, many decades ago Harold Wilson's cabinet spoke of a referendum as the life. Ralph the might actually allow the electric to take responsibility in the end for the decision on whether to go into Europe. And and stay in the seventies. Pull you a saying? I thought that was very interesting that you said that the general election doesn't provide the same sort of cover that a referendum could do and possibly for both parties. But do you do you really see Jeremy Corbyn at the forefront of a remained campaign will they wouldn't make the election about that? They'd say, look, we have plan on Brexit. You're sick of it all planned on Brexit is a very. Brexit. It could easily be sold as Norway minors. Now. I'm talking about a referendum if we have a referendum if we have a referendum campaign. No, I think the campaign will be looked current people's vote campaign and the other one best for Britain will have to both dissolve and they'll have to leave behind. I'm afraid Tony Blair and some of the people around from devils. Yeah. We'll look down the line from doubles is is is is warm person. But Tony Blair is another. I think most people know who wrote him run is. But the campaign for remain two zero. And I've been involved in this with the the left of the labour party. We're just basically saying you need a different kind of thing. Abraham was preparing for it. Now, it might have to say whoa message in the north of England. Another message in Scotland another in wells at another in Bristol. And we need a professional team to do that..

"In my voice when it comes to predictions for the next year. Okay. Well, this is you have to think of this podcast episode of doctor who worries trapped inside the DVD player in. He's recorded. Don't blink don't blink. Also, we have to be clear the time of recording the leadership of the premise ship for Liverpool f c. When you're listening to this. We hope that that there as well. So let's let's let's get the downs go, but. Extraordinary moment. I think in the history of this nation, the idea that just as the Morris minor is hurtling over the white cliffs of Dover with all of us at the back terrified what you have at the front is a group of Torian MP's gang. No, let me drive. No. Let me let me have the wheel. No me. Yes. That's what's going on right now or the listeners will know right now. But yeah, but you know, how it's working out. But I want you to get the downs. It's what's as of now as of twelve December. What's been your low point Brexit related of the year? Being called a jumper. I think for show. That was especially disgraceful. It was especially this gracefully. It came into the specially by time as well. You know, when you when you feel felt really kicked around and really insecure about what's going on. And to have it out of the mouth of the prime minister of this country in a formal context. Not I misspoke, you know, this. This is something that was a written speech that was vetted and probably group tested. And so this was no accident. It was no coincidence. It was quite deliberate. And it felt incredibly hurtful to a group of people that you know, I keep saying, and we'll keep saying we're actually disenfranchised for the vote that will decide if you to for. No good. Season. You know, there was both the practical ability for us to vote because we are on the electoral register with in local elections and European elections. So our names are in there. And there was a perfect precedent for for us to vote in the Scottish refer, and which was decided on residency on whether you you have been resident in Scotland for particular period of time. So there was neither illegal nor practical reason to exclude us from the vote as I understand it. From speaking to a lot of MP's that turning point was David Cameron and leading ten promising that the referendum would only be an advisory one. Which is why lot of MP's decided not to fight very hard on the detail of what particular franchise it was in what the question would be in. You know, if had it been said before that legis. Nation was put through that. This would be seen as a binding referendum. I think parliament would have scrutinized the franchise in the question for many many moments then they ended up doing. But the the impression was given. And was put in the legislation that this was basically at taking the temperature of the nation, and then two or three days after the the legislation went through Cameron came out and said, we will we'll give you a solemn promise we will abide by the result of the referendum which made it a politically by binding one. So yeah, ju jumper. That's quite revealing as well because it shows had mental image of of the world is simply everybody streaming towards Britain in trying to get in here. You know? So I under- that there is some source of notional Q. And and also the I think. The the conservative view of society in general as some game in which the sharpest elbows will get to the top and the rest just weren't good enough. What's your hope for next year as of December? What are you? What are your pending your ideas on? Canada. Plus, I think in that I hope to sell my flat plus emigrate to Canada. This is Alex. What we hope that doesn't come to turn is doubling plus plus I should say. I hope it doesn't come to that. We hope you don't do that. We hope that. This is a weird podcast because it's the only podcasts in the world that hopes it can stop as soon as possible. It does not exist anymore through..

"You can't anything out because you don't know who's gonna place, but I think actually one of the things that does unite love MP's is a growing at annoyance actually at David Cameron and his hand on this. There's I think if you speak to some even the breakfast silence on the remain side, a D David Cameron's legacy at the moment is getting worse. Not better than James. We read in the Sunday. But the reason was coming to come back because he's bored to tears put rather more crudely than that, not many other people in politics bored to tears right now for reasons that are related to those bind David Cameron's departure. I'm trying to work out. If you can be forgiven William Hague was forgiven. Tony Blair probably could never be do. You think? Can you see Niro David Cameron is welcome back to the government? Or do you think is just the wave if you'd been prime minister for a while if you leave and desert is he did then he'd be better to pursue a political career in some other country also very closely become in this morning. And they were making the argument that look he wants to come back doesn't wanna come back tomorrow. But you know, maybe in decades time not under the the next one. You know, he could emerge as elder statesman figure. He's still has always contacts around the world Novus. There's there's another problem, which is cameras only fifty two right? When you have been used to being prime minister and the power that comes with that in the sense of purpose that gives you. You were trying to believe house comments. I it's great. You get the kids up from school. You play tennis. Life seems easier. You catch up on what sleep that you missed out on. But then after wall this big hole in your life. And I didn't think Cameron is motivated by money in the way that some former politicians are only the because he's a genteel sufficiency already more than a genteel sufficiency. And Secondly, some people in life let us money to keep the school. David Cameron is one of those people. So I think he is just sitting around not quite knowing what to do. And I think this is. Aqui would lump sum big job and the, but the problem is that the causal Brexit, lots of global jobs like presumptive, sex, general NATO or something like that. They're not really going to be right. The him for that reason. And so there is this of sitting around I think what is also noticeable which is not just Cameron. But the Cameroons is a home are becoming much more engaged Tory politics. Again, partly for the reasons that Katie was saying that they can see a leadership contest coming in a change of toy direction coming and they won't have a kind of influence on that they weren't going to steer the party more direction. They were taking in the direction. Theresa May take. I think that as James said there is definitely a growing feeling that actually this debate for the feature the conservative party is reopened and then to resume I came to power. I think they're actually a lot of Cameron's at perhaps people such as cameras wanna hear everybody. Wondering hindsight whether it was such a good idea to leave the common so quickly. It did seem at the time. Like, Theresa May would be that in depth. You know, very very long run. She was she. Had very high popularity injuring a ridiculous poll ratings were honeymoon period and elect she would increase the majority to perhaps even triple figures. So at that point, you can see why all these people thought, well, she doesn't like our agenda, and she now has control a better find something else today. But now you have figures such as David Cameron, Georgia's Boone, he didn't wanna be constituency MP's when there was little hope he outside of parliament..

"MP's he probably you would align to type of banning injustices agenda. She she does worry about things like sociability. And I think the fact that she has gone over this issue will create some unease on the Tory benches. So James, do you think she would have said something more broad to the government's? I mean, it's because it seems to me as with most disputes there normally is approximate 'cause there's a deeper concern. And I mean, sure it is is never been breaking up is never easy. But did she have to go? I don't think she did have to go the government missed away out which is. I think that yesterday the treasury could have talked about timings commit to finish. I think one of the problems in into Whitehall terms is the in this budget, an awful lot was dictated the treasury. They were basically told to give you any motto amount of money, then to resume weeks before the budget says austerity is over and I think that was a very foreign treasury, those huge institutional reluctance to to start unraveling the budget because a junior minister objected something in it. So I think. Do you? It's not as if they hadn't seen industry were to lose these fixed on betting terminals. They'd hardly be like walking through an empty house of tears in their eyes with the it would not be the end would even be noticeable to the poet Venice. So when you get into thing, which don't get fit Davis who is the defender of Gambian strewn toy about benches his own communities, but if you bring this banning too quickly small independent, but makers who rely on them for the money. The big book the big book is five minutes. More independent bookmakers struggle. Now, I think not his trade scratches alluding to in her resignation letter when she talks about people with registered interests of won the day. Now, I think this is an amazing political cockup in a way because you've got budget, which is massively expansionary which has more money for for the Jess and tax cuts. Ended up losing a minister and very. Negative series of front pages and on a charge that reinforces one of Tories weaknesses, which is a sense that they know the price of everything and the value of nothing. Over very small amount of money. This is a common theme. The may government doesn't it look at the wind. Rush Sanger balloon charge fiasco in deal reveals in the magazine this week. It's been counters who were looking at the price of things, but missing the wider politics of this. So I'm wondering of Tracey crouch thought, look, this is a kind of to you steals language, less human governments, and that she's waiting for another one that was the code nation. Have I would say is there is this growing feeling amongst the Tory backbenches, and those ministers that this is a government of the past and when you speak to them, then I speaking to MP yesterday. He was saying you notice a certain secretary of states they in a way have is that urgency right now to get things done because they don't think they're going to be in that position for much longer. And I feel that we're getting to the point perhaps if to resume makes after Brexit for a change. Of the God. So I think Tracey crouch is Jenny very upset about what's happened here. So is taken the opportunity, but I don't think that I think she's one of several politicians don't for the current regime represents that politics anyway, says a bit easier to walk away from than if it was an agenda you of behind is you can make to that. And then obviously, we're hearing that David Cameron is thinking about allegedly making over ten, and I think again, I mean that's greet comedy. But it is a scientist that everyone does the conservative party is being such a state of flux. There is is not the sat we don't really expect to resume to be leading the way in a couple of years time. And I think as David Cameron allegedly wanting to become foreign secretary Missy with humid William Hague for him secretary is a former leaders and becoming Randy's as Reveille only ten he'd have to do the constituency work. It just goes straight to touring..

"And when he was quite right to focus on it, the great achievement of David Cameron Georgia's bone is to have effectively brought that deficit down to nothing. We didn't really have a current deficit anymore without completely butchering. The public services would disagree with that we wrong because there's. Literally precisely nose to SCO evidence. Footrace of course, has been restrained, and there's been austerity and have been some job losses, but we still have a universal healthcare system that is with the best in the world. We still have universal education system. We still have good defense and decent roads. We're a civilized society still having brought down spending as a shout of GDP from forty five percent in just before we came into office to now around thirty eight thirty nine. So that was an over when we talk. And what it meant is that we didn't tackle other tasks and where are most critical of myself and my colleagues and the conservative party in general is that we have completely failed to get to grips with the housing crisis assertively is we should have done, and we spend much too long tiptoeing around Nimby point of view. And I think it's fantastic that Liz trusses now being very forthright on this issue, but she will know because frustrated her, I. Lungs, it's frustrated me. Many conservatives have been more concerned to defend the interests of those who already have a property and not focused enough on the interest of those who don't yet have a property and who have every the ambition to one we're leaving a bit late frankly, to be doing much more now we are doing much more now and I'm not sure we're doing quite enough, and we all leaving very, very late. And if we lose the next election, whenever it comes the two biggest reasons for it in my view will be one that we will have basically screwed up Brexit. And the second will be that we failed on housing. I think those will be the two hammer blows that will push into opposition if that's what happens to us. And then finding to end where we began with a lovely Brexit question. Again, you've essentially landed quite in the middle of this. You're remain supporter during the twenty sixteen referendum, like many of people from the Cameroon gang. But since. Then you've been relatively climatic. You votes trigger article fifty. You've supported boldly the promise position or things as hopes issues developed from the Harvard lines, the Lancaster House, the softer red lines of check has, where do you think Brexit's going to end up? And how'd you know again, we have according to what is a lot of chatter about a no deal Brexit potentially in the EU without deal. How do you feel about where do you think it's going to end? Well, the first thing I think is very important thing for people to understand is there's going to be a new deal Brexit. I don't care how many of my colleagues dream of this in the midnight hour. There are not the parliamentary numbers to support no deal Brexit, and I will vote as a conservative MP in whatever ways, necessary on whatever motion will achieve the result of stopping. No deal Brexit is a lot of support for that. Do you think amongst you'll colleague was a lot of support amongst my colleagues? I am bound. Happy to be burned by manifesto commitments to secure right Brexit deal, which preserves economy and which gives us greater control over the key measures. The key things that were the motives for the referendum campaign great control over our borders over our laws over our money. Nowhere did I say, and did the manifesto say that I was bound to support Brexit at any cost, any price without any deals to replace it. And I will not support a no deal Brexit. And I can't think of forty conservative MP's at least who will not support no deal Brexit. So not your Brexit isn't going to happen. What is going to happen is only either a good deal or a band ill and what I'm those, though. Well, there are many measures, of course, as the economic measure, which is, does it support the interest of British business of all kinds of sizes services and. Manufacturing, there's the measure of, does it deliver on the legitimate goals of those who voted to leave? I mean, they won and I've considered it right from that morning..
