"First up, though. In parliament yesterday, Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson led tributes to sir David Amos. A man who used his decades of experience to offer friendship and support to new members of all parties. Whose views often confounded expectation and defied easy stereotype. And who believed not just in pointing out what was wrong with society, but in getting on and doing something about it. On Friday, the member of parliament was stabbed to death in a church in the small town of Leon sea in southeast England. As on every Friday, the Conservative Party MP was there to meet local people and hear their concerns. A 25 year old man has been arrested in the attack has been declared a terrorist incident. Many MPs are now calling for greater protections. In the wake of sir David's death, Chris Bryant and MP with the Labor Party called for people to be kinder. He then received a death threat from a man who was later arrested. It's not just name calling, but really, you know, vile threats to people's lives to their families and to those who are around. And we've got to change as a country. We've just got to change. Constituency surgeries where MPs meet voters to discuss local issues are a long-standing quirk of British politics. But not for the first time, there are fears these surgeries may be too dangerous to continue in their current form. So, David Amos was a very long-standing Tory MP. Joe Rogan is a Britain correspondent for The Economist. He was first elected in 1983 is election was seen as a symbol of the coming sort of Thatcher era and the growing Tory party appeal amongst working class voters. And since then, despite being an MP4 decades now, he's never been particularly prominent. He is what is known as a good local MP in British politics, which means that he spent a lot of time listening to his constituents complaints and their worries and their lives. And then he sort of would pick up causes which caught him usually from meeting his constituents. What kinds of causes? For example, I believe one of his early bills was against the cruel tethering of horses, which was something which caused a great deal of agitation in his area. But if we do have a later debate, it does give the house an opportunity to talk about animal welfare generally cruelty to animals and the welfare of farm yard animals figure success was cutting fuel poverty, which was inspired by the rather tragic case of a constituent of his who had died in a cold house and then recently he'd started campaigning on endometriosis because again a constituent had come up to him and said that this disease was very poorly diagnosed and very poorly understood. So he was one of the hundreds of MPs who don't get famous, but nonetheless do quite a lot of good by working on unglamorous causes. And this isn't the first time we've seen it an attack of this sort on an MP speaking to constituents. No, rather depressing ladies and we had in 2016 Joe Cox was murdered by a far right extremist. She was also on the way to what is called an MP's surgery where MPs talk to their constituents here their concerns. It's a pretty idiosyncratic British, political institution, one that many politicians are very attached to. But the meeting with the public element, obviously, it makes them quite vulnerable in some way. So we've had two other attacks of this nature, one was in 2010, which was a Stephen timms, who was an MP for east ham. He got stabbed by another Islamist extremist who attacked him at the time, and then in 2000, we had Nigel Jones who I believe was attacked with a samurai sword and his assistant Andrew Pennington died protecting him. That wasn't any ideological motivation there, I believe it was a constituent who was drowning in debts and mentally unwell and began to blame Nigel Jones for his troubles. So these these surgeries, what are these meetings like? What are they for? Basically, what happens is they're on a regular basis, MPs are expected to go back to the constituencies that they were elected in and hold meetings with their constituents sometimes they will ask for appointments, but sometimes people are allowed to just drop in and MPs almost act as social workers in a way and these things people will come and go. I'm having trouble getting my asylum claims processed. I'm having trouble with antisocial behavior in my area. The road is riddled with potholes where I live. So the very simple things often and I think many of them enjoy involving themselves in the lives of their constituents as feeling like they're making a real difference as a result of become a very central part of their duties. But as much as these surgeries are a British habit, the risk to politicians is certainly not limited to Britain. Yes, to an extent in 2015, we saw Henrietta reka, the mayor of cologne was stabbed in the neck by someone motivated by anti immigrant sentiment. I should add that she survived. We saw the liberal merit. Murdered in 2019 in both of these occasions they were attacked at public events, which aren't quite the same as these one on one meetings that British MPs indulge in. The closest analogy I can actually think of is maybe Gaby Giffords, the U.S. congresswoman who got shot in 2011, she was doing a talk called Congress on your corner, which was sort of informal meetings with voters in her seat. So that's perhaps similar, but that was a bit of an innovation. It's not such an integral part of the political system and political culture in the same way that it is in the UK. So how to maintain that to political culture that quirk and keep MPs safe? There is going to be a review into MP security. The national police, chief council has contacting all MPs to discuss security with them. And some MPs are saying they need to take more precautions. But on the other hand, many MPs are very resistant to this concept, just Phillips, who's a very outspoken, labor MP, so she doesn't want any security measures, which would interfere with her doing her job, similarly, Diane Abbott, who's a black female labor MP and received some of the most vile threats of any MP has said that she wouldn't want any police at her constituency surgeries, because it might put off some of her constituents from coming. She has said that she might adopt a plexiglass screen of some sort, but again, the fact that it's taken frankly two murders for her to begin contemplating this despite the many threats that she receives really does tell you something about how reluctant MPs are to have anything which they feel gets in the way of them interacting freely with their constituents. It sounds as if on balance MPs are more enamored of this kind of face to face contact than they are worried about their safety. Do you think even in the face of this attack that they'll continue to feel that way? Look, I think it's going to be inevitable that there are some changes. Maybe some of them will bring police into the surgeries either standing outside or in the room. There may be an element of MPs becoming a little bit more distant from their constituents because these security measures are a little bit harder to reach, which would be very sad to see because the type of people who come to complain about things to their employees are quite desperate and really are looking for anyone who can offer them some degree of help. So in your view, no chance they'll be abandoned. If I were to inject a slightly hopeful note, I do think the sheer level of attachment that most MPs do have to this surgery will at work means that they are going to try and keep any changes that they feel would interfere with their work to a minimum. We like to criticize MPs a lot in this country and some suggest that the sheer level of vitriol directed at them has contributed to the last two attacks. But most MPs.

"Mp who's been sort of You know toughen things of vukovar activate to some of his colleagues is a sense that kiss. Tom is machine is improving. Yes exactly. I mean all these people very newly appointed. It's remains to be seen. How well they perform whether they managed to turn around the operation and but you know already. Labor figures are crediting shibam mood. Who as you said. Is that national campaign coordinator with this trade or saying that. Appointing has really turned things around for the party. That was the turning points for the the and spend by-election that awkwardly the person she replaced in that role was angela the rainer five of placing by praising tavon performance in that row instead of saying and very good with risks. Reigniting seeing that whole row but definitely you know aside from savannah. There's a lot of new appointments have been made to cure summers core team of departures and there will definitely be hopes in the leaders office that these new people will be able to assure up his authority and sharpen up his political operation. But it's really to say how effective they are and how effectively will be with any speech. You know you'll be keeping an oil exactly what's going on in the inner workings of the of the labor party. Let's go now to chris. Curtis He was a couple of weeks ago off the fallout the chesham and amersham bar. In a pollster for opinion and joins us. Now live from me. Averge in col- morning. Good morning. I saw your pitch on so to this day you know. Is it sunny. It's not is it was going to school just down out. Great tonj come down. I don't wanna head bites so from a pollsters point of view. What do you make of the body and spend result. Should we make too much of it because you know that on the go we have seen polls putting the toys ahead. So what's happening. I mean posters point of view. I'm basically going to ignore the difference between the free hundred and forty eight victory quality about in spending three hundred forty the conservatives about being spent. It's it's it's it's. It's almost irrelevant to the kind of analysis that we do because what we've been seeing in the poses fairly consistent over many months to lead of around ten points to the to the conservatives social conservatives mostly off. The back of the successful vaccine rolled out and boris jumps into conservatives numbers being based off the back of that period. We've had free elections one of which the conservatives did very well in. yeah. I've been hardly one of which becomes very badly and and chechen manama ship. And then obviously this one which the conservatives didn't do particularly well then but overruled the pictures still been the same. I've all of these free by actions to conserve his to come comfortable lead in the polls the only reason that has been different in those seats because of we'd unique factors dropping now on a sort of a strange way that by-elections tend to operate. So i think really. It's it's more important than me paying attention to those national numbers when thinking about what it means for the policies going into the next election then the kind of quirks what happened in any any specific action and for a while now teams. Tom has been saying. Oh it's early days yet. You wouldn't expect him to be a head. This stage is a long way to go. I mean we. Are you know the end of this year. We two years since the general election is coming up next week. I think two years since boston. I became prime minister. Fair way into this or reggie. There's already talk of well. If we have an early election in twenty twenty three we could be now less than two eighteen months away from the start of that campaign potentially so what point the labor party have to worry about the fact that the always are still ten twelve points ahead in the polls and on the question of who makes the best. Prime minister kissed on his mood behind. Boy johnson and don't know if i was a party i'd be worrying a lot more about kissed his personal ratings than i would be about the voting intention numbers Because actually the number that this far our is often quite turn around we saw at the boundary struck which turn around for example in the two thousand ten to twenty fifteen parliament when he fell behind. David comments about the number. I think that they should be focusing more than worrying about. I think we have to remember. How volatile politics isn't i mean. The twenty twenty seventeen election campaign labor went from twenty four points to forty points during the election campaign itself in twenty nineteen labor policy drop down to about eighteen percent in the polls at one point before moving back to thirty two and On election day so we do see big move movements. Even you know in the monks running up to election campaign itself and the pulse. Free elections later has seen a surge in support during the election campaign itself. I wouldn't so rule out potentially happening again. So yeah obviously. This is not a good situation for the life of politics to be with the house all the time. Politics is the money. I don't think you can still ruled out the potential for labor to come back to now in the next general election those of page from the polls that sir. Chris curtis Poster opinion joining us.

"You're listening to the red box. Podcast now take a look at that. By-election result overnight labor. Just hanging on imbalance spent. I do hereby declare that kim michelle lead beats is julie elect to so labor one relate better the sister of course of joe cox the labor. Mp was murdered in battling spend back in twenty sixteen. It was tracey braverman. They a combination story actress. Who replaced with the mp Tracy brave and then stood down early this year. So Triggering this by-election kibera better the mp of joe cox winning the seat by just three hundred and twenty three votes. The focus now is catching up on sleep. Maybe a few glasses of face. And and then there's lots to do. And i think the campaign is highlighted. That there's lots to do but i'm going to crack on with it and i will do my very best to represent the whole of leeann spin as then you mp. I'm absolutely delighted that the people of leeann spent have rejected division and they voted for her. Thank you very much. Everybody rejected division votive hope by three hundred and twenty three votes. Let's find out in the mobile. Speak to pizza. Mandelson and diane abbott to get their take on what all of this means what needs to do next but first let's pizza lady. Career brisk reporter at times high laney high not. So what's the immediate sort of impact of this was. i mean. clearly this is better for care star than losing the seats but three hundred twenty perhaps too much into three hundred twenty-three votes yes exactly. I mean if if there was a few hundred votes that went the other way we would have had a very different story to tell today and it would have been all about how catastrophic roughly bad labor has been doing since since the crisis and became leader but actually labor scrape through and as a result. It's a huge relief for the party. And i'd try of the for for starmer according to many of his supporters. I guess one thing to to de-emphasize actually is that george. Galloway took away a lot of votes in this election. About eight thousand so the fact that neighbor did did win is remarkable because most votes that george galloway attracted thought to have been labor votes. So you know. Without his candidacy labor would have likely had a significantly larger majority. Where does this put all the talk in the last week or so of angela. Venable maneuvers because store in the paper today about how she's already lining up the unions to to back the leadership bid which definitely doesn't exist been clearly three lack this morning but where where does this put his his long term stability. It definitely buys more time and you know the angelina. Allies who have been behind the scenes preparing potential leadership challenge and whipping up support amongst. Mp's and trade unions are definitely having to name no today and the question is now what here does about the people who have shown this disloyalty of the last few days and weeks well party was in the middle of this. Very difficult by-election campaign. They were instead of campaigning and supporting him and the party they were plotting for his successor for angela. Right to to replace him. So you know what will star do about that. You know that group of people now is a very important question at they definitely weekend and he has been emboldened by this southern despise him more time over the next few months to try and win back as restate his authority and went back porch among the you happen questioning his leadership. I wanna supposed to use a whisk in this Written about this in my column for the of all the You know if case. Thomas dresses seek revenge on android the last time he did that. He tried to sacco and ended up promoting to a job with an enormous job title. I mean there's a risk that if he is removed against against the archbishop accountable by accident so what is this that relationship between angela. I'm kissed well you know. It's definitely been fruits of hussy months as you say the kind of the moment in which it all exploded was when he attempted to sack her briefed out that he was going to she resisted and that he ended up having to spend more than twenty four hours negotiating a set of new roles for her. The whole affair angered people on all sorts of the party so much that he just ended up being weakened by it and you can definitely definitely safely assume that he will be avoiding doing something similar again. I mean he might. He might try to put an emphasis on unity. And kind of you know especially when it comes to answer herself. It's the question of other people who are perhaps more on the left of the party who are allied to her perhaps using her as a way to challenge him and try and get another jerry corporate type figure in his place who he might want to act against but definitely we. You wouldn't expect him if he's being sensible to try and undermine his deputy leader again but you know who knows. Today's long he's the and behind the scenes to have been changes. And you know it's it's it's it's it's in. The weeds sometimes political nerds. This isn't a safe space for that. I don't know where where is a new political director. Luc sullivan is coming in.

"Radio. Get you on the way very soon coming up. On today's episodes well not comb. They managed to hang on in. Batley and spend is possibly the worst possible result for kissed. 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. Nazis wade as they come across all the telly. Or whatever. and you get exactly the same conversations now from people around Case dahmer and like it or not that is part of the game part of boys. Johnson's huge electoral appeal isn't to do with how was it was ten hospitals or forty hospitals. It's his it's. His personality is his personal connection with billions of voices. I have to say probably like you have meant ed. Miliband and golden brown and boris johnson. I mean admit. Abandon gordon that were at odds of all all the all the relative terraces. Yeah now.

"It will be one thing. We were in a situation where the vaccine rolled out meant that it was impossible for the opposition parties to get a look-in with clearly not in that moment which suggests that the crisis is more particular to the labor party now is also had a report from the comments education committee and is to hear about white privilege. Can you give us the details now. This is really interesting. It's got a very eye-catching line about want privilege being something that may have held back work to improve the chances of white working class children because it is a seem that because they are white. They can't possibly be struggling in the education system. I'm this is caused a big round within the education. Select committee with the labor members objecting formerly in the votes that they had just to explain. Select committees when they're producing their reports because they cross party if there's disagreement over lines in the report or the summary of the report and so on then they end up having votes and that will divide along party lines and the labor members of the committee voted against the use of the term white privilege as a criticism. And there's been around that sam blown up around that with such is diane abbott saying. It's another tory attempt to sow division and people hitting boxing. We'll know this. This is exactly the point that that term is divisive and on helpful t a group of children who are not only left behind in the education system but ignored and have been ignored for very long time. The report itself is fascinating and it does touch on a a strange overlook. Terry if you talk to anyone in the education world they will say oh yes white working class children are the ones who always get left behind. They often have the the least parental support. Their often ignored by teachers by initiatives announced by government. But nothing is done about this and so that's why the education select committee has done this lengthy inquiry on the Educational chances of white working cross children but it has turned into part of the culture war war on woke or whatever. You want to call it that that is currently in -veloping our politics at the moment. And i don't know whether the that has got his necessarily a good thing for the policy as she the the mp's on the committee wanted to discuss because the risk is that it just ends up being dismissed as being an attempt to sow division by the people who should be paying attention to this within the education world. Here say phrase educated lost. We have razor back office. I think this is not just an important issue. But one of the most important issues in politics. I've been involved in sociability foundation for quite some time and there's no doubt demographic moves in these programs is white working class and i think the again politicians will say. Isn't this terrible if you look at the cast figures. There's doubts that white working class boys are the category least likely to get into university of anybody else. The boys especially the gap to female is almost as big as the gap between white and non white. That's never be able to address this problem. We can't talk about it and what we found out. Miss committee blew up is just how much difficulty. There is an even talking about the problem of white working class under achievements. Now known again you see. This is an agenda. Which has this bill says is given lip service. Every six months sometimes once a year theresa may steps of number ten am mentioned white working class as being a problem but that will net matter not one jot..

"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

will bring home to young people the tragic consequences of carrying a knife and challenge the idea that it makes you safer he added the government is doing everything it can do to tackle the senseless violence that is traumatizing communities in claiming to many young lives including bolstering the police ranks with twenty thousand new police officers on our streets okay and that's a bad thing I guess to add please yeah I guess so that's that's where you are going in them and we're going to Great Britain yeah it's really a become a parity was couple years ago will re we we couldn't believe it on Twitter one night we thought it was a joke and we actually looked it up in a wasn't it was a a town in Great Britain where they had confiscated all of these dangerous weapons yes and it wasn't a joke it wasn't a parity help yes it looked like a tool box screwdrivers hammers and we took these dangerous weapons off the street well and that was you know the again the the idea that it's the inanimate object it's got the I mean that really was like a parody was it was like a joke it was like reading something from the onion or Babylon BC yeah look at these screwdrivers we got it out of the hands of harden screwdriver criminals I mean seriously it's just it's it's ludicrous it's crazy but that's the effort we must stop it well I mean to what extent what what would be next eight would be I guess blunt objects so I mean imagine the gangs in in the UK start using the blunt objects right well we're gonna van rocks we're gonna ban every blunt object because they refused to pull weeks why is that what is a society that refuses to leasing it basically gives deference to the actual people who were intent on hurting others I don't know when we had talked about this you know a couple weeks ago with Baltimore we said the the differences you cannot doesn't matter how many opportunities owns you have if a community does not feel safe people and businesses will not thrive there that's it right end of story if and especially now in twenty nineteen with the communications that we have there has to be a relationship and a trust between the police and the people in a community but you only gain that trust after you get rid of the extreme violent crime that has happened in these communities you have to have much more aggressive policing in those areas until you clean up the extreme violent crime that exists there and build a culture where that is unacceptable right yeah then you can go back to a lot of normal policing that you see in most areas because the trust is only build up after you get out the harden cried yes once you've done the job you're building that trust and then you you get that added benefit of that trust from the community that things are good land and that that that the that authorities are doing their job and that their neighborhood safe and if police can do their job then they're not going to do that job and in all likelihood they're not going to be pleasant to be around either no no that's just the reality and neither will the people in that community right well I know you saw yesterday in Philadelphia saw the taunts of hauntings right right I mean that's like something out of a movie actually watch the movie awhile back was several months ago but it was something like that where the police showed up and they were all they were looking to do is question someone right in this movie and of course you have a number of people like they came over and then all of sudden started you know taunting them and everything else I can't imagine trying to do that job in that case they were just serving a war well how do you how dare you have a presence here that goes on every day that goes on everyday thank goodness it's not every day that you see you see the kind of dangerous situation that we saw play out the other day that that it doesn't go to that extent but that danger that risk is present every day I can imagine I really can't I just can't imagine eight six six ninety right I let's said do you what we got some calls we talked earlier about the NFL and and JZ now was saying that the kneeling is over we go to Gary in Toledo Ohio Gary welcome urine by radio welcome to the show Gary good morning Jim all the yellow to yellow bill which I do normally keeps me awake and I like that part thanks one of the wanted to say that John Carter AJ Jay Z. is one of the most prolific capitalistic black men in America and I actually commendable what he's doing because he sees on an opportunity to take control of the narrative now there's none left is not going to like it we know that but here's the thing they can't keep chopping off their nose to spite their face I mean they want everybody to stand in line for a handout well if you cut off all of society's money what about government broke it is time to take I don't know how many leftists liberals are in this society but I believe there are more capitalist in this is not a been there are liberal and they cannot survive if we unify so this is a golden opportunity to teach people to go back to work they could sit around waiting on a hand out why don't know where to go because we're getting a little bit off the topic of of the of the specific protest and the and the NY leans in in the in the NFL thanks I think of the far left though which controls the Democratic Party the fact that if you say that he's a capitalist will work against yeah that that's it it works for those of us who are already converted yeah the you're preaching to the converted already Gerry the Gerry the caller it is certainly I'm AZ are a great hope that half of that he could control the narrative and and and convince people to get back too I don't know whatever they were supposed to be doing work or whatever it is and being a productive society but but honestly that is that is was wishful thinking I think nothing more special will come so far let the far left doesn't care they don't care who you are this is the far left is preaching that no no no no no people like in fact it was a poor choice for many reasons you know Jay Z. became a billionaire if you look all this at all the stuff you know that that that he's you know involved in I mean do you know that the the wealth that he said that he has actually don't knows if he's actually qualifies as a billionaire but in this guy's worth you know hundreds of millions of dollars and if you look at everything that is involved in for the left today for the twenty nineteen AOC left he's part of the problem yeah Hey we may listen to your music you know what if you wanna have a real discussion why do you have so much wealth and other people suffer so he's probably the last person that they would want as a spokesperson and again we're talking about the act was left well our spokesperson to explain Colin Kaepernick yes yes a spokesperson two eggs you know because Jay Z. probably has its own private police force when it comes to security you can bet it's solid and so an armed and arm so the fact of the matter is and and I'm guessing any of us homes qualify as a small city and likely qualify they have their home congressman so I have a measure but that he could be you know well you know I'm from from what I heard he may finance the president buying Greenland her hair and he could but that's the you know I I I think it is wishful thinking and it would be great if it were to come true but would also be great if I could walk outside and and take money off of a tree and we could all do that without the valuing the actual money it would just come out of no where it is just it's just wishful thinking it's not not gonna happen eight six six ninety eight right I.
