Does he declare victory and carry on regardless lots of his. Mp's still not very happy with how things are going. We're here form. Peter mandelson and diane abbott plus elena korea. I'm poster chris. Curtis about what all this means the labor going force. That's coming up in just a moment. First our columnists panel and today. We've got melanie read from the times and matthew side from the sunday times. Let's start with the big political story of the day. How pleased with himself should kiss dom a be this morning. Do you think well. I think he should be extremely pleased with himself Because if if it hadn't been for one of those great nobles politics sort of matt hancock effect we'd be sitting here talking about The possibility of laters next female leader wouldn't we. You'd think it was my hancock bonnet for labor i. I'm inclined to think that way. Yeah i mean. Three hundred and twenty three votes and the conservatives Campaign is did admit that it was a big subject on the doorsteps didn't they. They did thought he less not yesterday. But today what about you matthew. Yeah i think. I think that's true. I think the hancock story has provoked massive and potentially lasting anger people. You know also different backgrounds while horrified. I think the prime minister didn't sack him immediately. I'm finding out what he'd been up to. But i do think the more general trend here is is very dangerous for labor. The vote in the working class communities has been dropping since two thousand five. And i think it's gonna be you know notwithstanding this this decent result it's going to be extraordinarily difficult for them to assemble the winning coalition at the next election. And i sort of one of the labor maybe had a decent week. They've hammered the conservatives on hancock. You know actually kissed pretty decent. Pm cues by his standards. this week. finding is in now the one bowl for them another everyone else but ultimate he's ended up holding a seat which is being life for twenty five years. That's a long way for making the gains causing the and even in scotland but Where which we seem such a long way off which he's going to need to make those gains go any hope of becoming prime minister to become come to come from ministry to have to get you know twenty seats in the in scotland back but i mean he he can now start spending this as a turning point a time for change time of consolidation I mean as red box said this morning. Good luck to anyone trying to reset the narrative. But that's what he's going to have to do and You know it's it's just going to come general election. George galloway can't stand. It comes down in every in every constituency. Thank god i mean. What a wrecking ball. You know without. Let's let's not forget that without george who is a one off and we have to be careful what we say with him. Because he'll he'll sue us for saying anything but with with he's one off and without him Labor labor would have won this seat. You know reasonably security. Yes well possibly the other thing that people would be pointing out in the if you look like a dozen fifteen sixteen Candidates in this. It's very difficult because the whole world piles in uganda. By how many votes. The toys lost some fringe group. Or whatever you know george. Galloway was very high profile. To if you were giving advice to case donna. Both of you this morning. What do you think he needs to do to try and capitalize on this. Not back as you were joking melanie. We're not this time next week. Talking about angelina planning another leadership bid is really hard when his neck because he's such a palpably decent guy You know he. He's the kind of guy that you want to marry. But he's just not got that kind of that. Charisma that that That lightness of a movement. That you kind of want for in a politician. He needs to be a bit more. Spunky roguish I you know maybe maybe he needs to go on an eighteen cups at holiday. It something just just you kind of want him to breakouts a big in the sort of nicest possible way. I very hard kind of how. How rotten are weak. In this world that we condemn someone for just being too nice. Decent bit more than the of politics is connecting with people. And if you have a bit dull Yeah you could be perfect decent person but the number of times. I've i doubt the as i've been told if only everyone in the country could meet gordon brown personally phone on the country could meet ed milliband person. They'd realize that.

"The Iraq war logs that we see the X. was responsible for this was the material that Chelsea manning gave to wikileaks which they published them in the face of no one else wanted to do so including that extraordinarily painful to watch video cool which would give the school collateral murder which had a helicopter in dad gunning down innocent people including Reuters journalists and sort of it was a material fact today in undermining the American and British war effort in Iraq Jermichael win and Diane Abbott were opposed to that war from the get go in very small minority of British MPs who did so but I think one of the reasons why they're so popular with young people in Britain is because they all clearly against these hopeless walls in Britain have been involved in by extension in support of Palestinian rights in the Middle East absolutely could cold winds I had a long tradition of supporting the Palestinians and of course that's got him into a lot of a difficulty with people who support the state of Israel I was going to ask you about that because they're saying that Jeremy Corbin's an anti semite yeah there's been a weaponize ation of anti semitism which has been extremely unfortunate and is still going on through this election campaign gang up to December twelfth hi you know there have been some issues of anti semitism in the labor party I suspect that that much less widespread inside the labor party which is basically an anti racist party than they are in society as a whole and actually I don't think that anti semitism until recently and he and even recently has been a big issue in British society I mean there is certain anti semitism around in the world today and where it is it should be combatted but it hasn't been a big issue in which the society and it certainly hasn't been a big issue in the labor party but this is been used as a way of attacking the labor leadership and I don't think that they've dealt with it very well I think they have rather been on the back foot to be very defensive about it but it's a very difficult thing to deal with you know a where the Jewish establishment and the British press and the the right wing the ship of the Tory party will be using this as a way of undermining the leadership of the labor party very very difficult to deal with them sue what whether this is a big issue for a wide swathe of the electorate around the country I think you have to be a bit more skeptical about that but it's certainly going to be a factor in this in this election the heartland in the USA has been de industrialized with millions losing their jobs and something similar to this is happened in Great Britain the brexit vote to pull England out of the European Union has divided the working class in Great Britain I wanted to ask you about your opinion of brexit I has there been an adequate discussion about why it people would want to leave in the first place no I don't think so I think what happened was the that that which took place and the camera government it was a referendum which was basically institute H. M. in two thousand fifteen in order to try to deal with a split in the Tory party when the results it was a radio shock to the establishment a bit like the election of trump here no one really anticipated that this would go through but he did it and I think subsequent attempts to explain it offer made by rather right wing commentators in the metropolitan a lease of land well very disparaging a feeble breaks invade was split between the that Tories in the home counties around London ands wide sections of working class people in the north and the west Midlands of England and in the the London media and the political elite have very little idea of what those people in the north of England and the west Midlands actually thought about anything and they were very ready go up the so as soon as this vote came through the tendency was to ascribe it to a kind of xenophobia racism ignorance you know the feeling that these people already didn't know what was best for them but I think if you go to be able to do that what is going on in those communities in the north they'd say actually this was much more to do with the fact of basically saying with fed up with this with fed up with the way that the establishment has been running this country for so long with fed up with the fact that all communities is being ravaged by well you know they wouldn't call it neo liberalism but that it but by international capitalism and we wonder just basically have no more of this and so it was a way of sticking a finger up but this is this is stab Dishman Bob I have a little sympathy for that as I think this is Jeremy cold and I think he's been quite careful even though the majority of the labor membership a substantial majority of the labor membership is pro remain opens been very careful not to alienate that labor base in the north the voted for lex have fit for brexit as a way of expressing their frustration and the position of the party is that should they win on December twelfth they will organize another referendum and they will then go to Europe and tried to get a CH a much better deal than Boris Johnsons negotiate and then put that back to deal to the electorate with the option of remaining and allow people to have a final say I mean it's a complicated in two explain on the doorstep and it has the disadvantage of keeping this debate here and breaks it M. rolling on hello it's gonna roll on anyway even if even if the Tories win and and Britain comes after the European Union straight away but it's a way of recognizing that the in the end you have to try and bring the country back together again around this issue and I think cool beans you very good at saying that actually this isn't the most important issue facing the Briton the actually the most important issues facing Britain of inequality and racism climate change and issues like that so I really am I hope that they've it's going to be able to get that position over in this campaign I think that's what they're working on well as it stands now what do you think the labor party's chances are of success well you know I mean I wouldn't be a safety issue I was in a bit of an optimist in me is how to be a pessimistic socialist I think I think we're in with a chance I mean there are there are there are lots of things have ranged against labor I mean there is in an extraordinarily hostile media a couple of things that are worth noting on the media friend festival is the actually the rules of British elections of so much better than the rules in American elections festival it's a much shorter campaign period so you can people can focus on the cabin basis there's always a lecture really is it's a month and a half rather than a year and a half right there's always an election writing in the United States and it's always the most important election of our lifetimes but in Britain it's two dimensional concentrated period in that period the political parties are not allowed to buy advertising on television that's bad to that makes a huge difference parties are allocated time on television to put that case based on how they performed in the previous election say they get things that Colin party political broadcasts which are time which the broadcasts is have to give it over to the political parties based on how popular they all to address the public and then in the news coverage in the election period there is a legal requirement on the broadcasters to give equal space to the political parties based on how they perform in previous elections so that gives labor a much better shot than when the coverage is just normal when obviously the broadcasters like the rest of the media and set a lot the newspapers all you know generally ranged against them another thing which is quite significant I think in this election and it's kind of a bit of a straw in the wind is it the guardian which is the kind of main left liberal I pepcid but that the other way around liberal left paper in the in the UK which is traditionally ignored the the we ship that a test which is solidly on the left and gone for a much more centrist politics has already come out pretty clearly actually and said that it is going to be supporting cold in this election and that's a shift on that Paul said to I think they use that those things are actually quite positive but the choice we got a lot of money I've got a lot of business backing obviously and they've also got a propensity to lie you know without qualm sooner they they the truth is really not a principal question for them that gives them some advantage they can just put things out there that did not true and they go around and you know some people believe them so it's not gonna be easy but yeah I think we're with the chance we got five hundred thousand members the gang at the knocking on people's doors I mean I had the other day there's a constituency coaching for it near London and it's a seat okay bye bye Tory coldly and Duncan Smith he's one of the most right wing racist really really unpleasant publication quite high up in the Tory party and last weekend momentum which is the activist organization supporting Jeremy Corbyn at the base of the labor party send five hundred young people over the weekend five hundred to go knock on doors and the reports coming back from that whether they were getting a very good response so I think they were talking about this as a people powered election and I think you know that will go a long way it's amazing to me how what you're saying about what's going on in Great Britain resonates with what's going on here in the United States and the Bernie Sanders phenomena and all the in the local phenomena is to like chase who did win in as a progressive for district attorney in San Francisco for calling before we we move on there's one question that I just can't resist asking you a year from Liverpool was John Lennon a socialist yeah I think he was yeah he definitely was he was certainly anti establishment and whether we have a actually came out and supported labor in those days there was a labor government around in the sixties and Harold Wilson but it was pretty it was pretty centrist moderate labor government and John had a mole radical position than that he went on the anti war demonstrations against the Vietnam War I know he March with Terry Kelly and I think he any okay read that song give peace a chance as a way of protesting war say he if I don't know what he was actually about labor party supported but he was certainly he was certainly on the left and yeah let me just say that you had been called who is the manager of the Liverpool soccer team there's a statement by him guy around at the moment I think it may be some he said some years ago but anyway it's going around at the moment Liverpool traditionally been one of the strongest soccer teams in the world I mean they've had a bit of a a tough time over the last few decades but in the in the seventies and eighties they were the.

By that library, gang. That's what I was in. Yeah. So when the positive DM's and stuff make you like reach you make you feel things is that the same of the negative ones. The negative ones. I'm sorry. I'm just I'm just assuming that you're I mean. Yeah. Well, of course, you're getting negativeness why you know. The the nature of the internet. The negative ones day really the negative ones that really shocked me actually because artists is assume then expect that I'm going to get negative to. I'm a woman being like being loud and proud and a woman in a predominately male space. I'm going to get hey, like black women know, even should just raise the whole black women fun. But black women do get a lot of hey way, more than what women way more than an Asian women and way more than men. So Diane, Abbott. She gets the most of us out every empty not the work MP by fall. She's the worst MP, but she gets the most difference and the most abuse Al every M P in the country. Why? So for me, I'll do something. For example. I'll go on nyc. I used to present a show clued Zoe Boulogne fatty so already had a weekend morning show stable in fat as able and Sunday, and it was right lie entertainment chat. And I had a spot regular sport. I was present in a segment who trend to news of London. He's and every week. I will come in and talk about whatever the hell. I wanted to make it funny. Do a game with the guests. It was really fun. And I did it. Yeah. I did pretty much every week every other week. And there was always a tweet from someone going. I call it her stunned her, and it's usually women as well. She's just she Vogler this horrible. And I'm like babe, I'm cute. I'm bloody chew, and I'm going to show just being cute Hon, I'm not saying and even offensive I'm being cheeky and cute and fun.

"The first question we need to ask is what is merit. And what we find in politics is that men's merit in politics is often just taken for granted while women constantly have to prove that they deserve a place at the table. But now that we Todd quotas in many countries for many years, we can actually look at and compare quota women and non-quota women and men. And what we find is that actually they tend to be as qualified if not more qualified and their male counterparts, but also that if you ask politicians voters, many of them can't tell you who's a quote, a women and who's not a quota women. So you don't see that kind of token affect or stigmatization that you see elsewhere. And in fact that so for example, colleagues in Sweden have done a very interesting study that shows that what happened when you put quotas in for women was that you got rid of mediocre men. So what happened is that the most highly qualified men and the most highly qualified women were selected. So actually the quotas have a positive impact on merit rather than a detrimental. One RV particular times in a country's history which possibly more prepared. For women seeking to make it in politics, and I may not always be the best of times. This is the gloss cliff as opposed to the glossy feeling theory. The idea that men possibly a little bit more inclined to step aside and let women clean it up when things have gone to heck in a hand cut. Yes. Certainly. There's evidence that women are more likely to get the chance to lead parties or lead governments in times of crisis. So times where you've lost power, you've lost favor with voters. You've had a corruption scandal. So they tend to come in when the jobs at the top are not very desirable, and they tend to come in and be left cleanup someone's mess. And it's exactly because other rivals are more likely to step aside because they want to wait for opportunities down the line or they might be weak candidates in the women candidates might be more experienced. So again, kind of in some ways, opens up opportunities, but also the evidence seems to suggest that women are more likely to then be thrown out of those posts. Quicker than men if they fail. And we see that not only politics, but in things like business and so on. So it's a kind of poison chalice in some ways. How big a handy Cup still for female politicians at any level is the. I mean, it's all the difference in the way the media responds to writes about a female politicians as opposed to male ones. The different aspects of the background, their appearance that get concentrated on are we getting anywhere near a media ceasing to treat women in politics as as some sort of peculiar novelty in that respect. I think we still do see a lot of gendered media coverage, particularly because with women leaders because political leadership is very masculine is and particularly as we move towards kinda more presidential is individualized election campaigns. And what you see for a women leaders is this double bind of having to live up to the kind of masculine. Assumptions and expectations of leadership, but also kind of manage their femininity. So the coverage of Theresa May's shoes and her outfits and things like that. You know these kinds of things. You certainly saw also with Hillary Clinton, and I think those kinds of tensions. But also I think the other issue is that we've seen with the rise of social media and new media, the kind of abuse, violent threats faced by female politicians and particularly women of color. Diane Abbott, for example, as a frequent target for sexist racialist abuse. So there's a new kind of arena for political women that may deter them from seeking office to bring back to the subject of today's program to raise a may..

"Of two things structures rather than people. So not just the individual treatment of these black women as you both said, is reflective of institutional practices that are busy liens of years old. Sadly. And so when we think about these political structures, I always think about political power as limited power, that power nonetheless, which is why voting becomes really important that there are things that you can achieve as a result of political power that make real differences to the lives of people, particularly marginal women and women of color. And so those structures, those policies matter And with both the UK and the US when it comes to the party. Is that these two women apart of Diane Abbott and Congresswoman Maxine Waters. We're seeing these pushes for a more progressive set of policies because they're all kinds of shambles for them. Both. We certainly know within Labour in the UK, Jeremy Corbyn was fighting his own party a lot throughout the campaign, and that must have impacted the election result at stunning. As the result was the hung parliament, result words and certainly within the US. But number five, it feels like an ongoing implosion of course. But just in the midst of the testimony of Jeff Sessions, we just heard from coal me as well. And so when you think about these imploding, What feels like imploding political structures, and we think about the importance of resistance for black people and black folk and people of color finding a way even as these implosion happen Evadne I wonder what that looks like for you in the UK when now. In the midst of coalition building and coalition discussions, But what does that look like in this moment where you have these victories for black women on the one hand, But what feels like a Labour party in chaos on the other? Going back through some of what you just said in terms of the tidal wave of change that we had beeen witness in thin breakfast. And I think what Doc has done is opened a window to a certain element of our community who feel that it is now acceptable and it is now Okay for them to come out of the woodwork and to behave and to call people whatever they choose to and all of their hatred and violence not coming out. What we have seen with this latest selection is, thankfully a particular surge from young people coup of look at what's been going on. And it very much stemmed from Brexit. They saw what was happening as a result of Brexit in. And they really came out hundreds of thousands of young people registered to vote for this. Election who had never voted in their lives and it's because they thankfully had seen the tied the change in in the way people were behaving, the that you see some of the institutional behavior that people are suddenly had gone on the ground. I think we must never forget and never believed that racism had had improved, and things were better, really, what had happened is gone underground and as a result of Brexit. And then what happened in the US with the election of Trump, A lot of people started coming back out, And this is what we then. So we've had recent The Merrill election not so long ago. That was the first time in this country that I can remember where we saw campaign in. That was personal. And again someone We've got a Muslim Merrin And he got some rich real based on his ethnic Petit is religion and so on. And this is what's happened with Diane dance now come out as the older stateswoman of politics. And so they felt that she was fair game. And suddenly because of what's happened with her. She went through a lot of stop and go all of that in this country. I think there's been an awful lot the top topping in recent times with the Black lives matter. And so one that is actually motivated black people in this country to stand up and become more politically active with a small Pete, but much more politically active and thousands and thousands of women who were perhaps not even signs of Diane came out in support of Diane. You know, they formed all kinds of groups to support damn because people felt that No, we cannot stand by and allow William An and black women to be treated in this way, because of people's racist views. And I and I think that this will not be tolerated in the an and we know black women have always been very much at the forefront of any campaign in and any change in behaviour. We only have to look out what Stephen Lawrence his mom during was capable of. When we talked about equality black women will not stand by and allow this. New view was not even new, But this confidence that these people seem to have go in that they feel they can come out and say whatever they wanted to say and treat people. However, they want to treat people. I'm just to pick up on something we talk about women in power and the support system that's there for them. I think that's probably one of the heartening things about this particular elections, the number of black women. So no longer do we only have a handful. So to support when they're in that environment is is limited if these women and we we hope that these women will come together to support network for each other because they will. That powers will be very limited if I tall, if they do not stands together because there's no point housing five black women or six black women if they don't stand together because it was still go only thirty two percent women in Parliament. So despite the celebration And this is not just document, This is women, There are still only thirty two percent in our Parliament. In this country, So we're a long, long way. And if you think we are a long way with women than we're even further down the line with black women coming into politics. So we still got a long way before we have any real clout. And before we can make any real significant changes in this country. Be Lindsey as hurts to remaking as some of these moments are both in the UK and even in the US, I think about Senator Kamala Harris and she is only the second black woman elected to the US sent it meant it puree like in the history, The Senate bloom. So that also says something quite damn thing about political systems. And that's what's instead before this idea of what it means to actually gain Howard new systems without a concentration, the folks moving towards justice, moving towards the quality, moving towards challenging systems that have than exclusionary and disproportionately negative losing.
