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. May's decision donning moments of her administration commit twenty-fifty net zero target. Only kind of off the thought. She the mohanchris coop suasion joyfulness. She bandied about it even now known. Would think theresa may is great green ahead and yet she took this decision from which all sorts of future decisions have the stem. But i think to remember names of bishops is very seats. Promotional world where Christie is coming from fossil fuels. Were kind of on talking for. I think you have to remember that. The british energy system like any other system But also transport system unfairly household energy or freeways needs to be decarbonised. And i remember whether we're on track to do that.

Boris Returns: British Prime Minister Returns to Work

"The British prime minister Boris Johnson is back at work on two two weeks convalescence following hospital treatment for coronavirus which included three days in intensive care his re emergence into public life comes at a time when there is pressure from within his own party I'm from business leaders to ease locked restrictions and reopen the economy but speaking outside his London residence number ten Downing Street Mr Johnson said he would resist that pressure the risk of a second outbreak was too great well I know it is tough I want to get this economy moving as fast as I can but I refuse to throw away all the efforts and the sacrifices of the British people and to risk a second major outbreak and huge loss of life and the overwhelming of the NHS what is because the Markham 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

"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

Report reveals no-deal Brexit impact – here's what you need to know

"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. If I begged you to end on a hopeful note maybe an post markle Germany. You may be in Europe. Where would it be. Where do you find hope well. I think their frustrations in every every one of the countries I think think that Emmanuel macron although the president of France where I live. I think that he is trying to do the right things. 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. That's we'll. They'll be burned
