"dominic robb" Discussed on As It Happens from CBC Radio

"Since london police officer was convicted of murdering sarah everard. Many in the uk have been calling on the government to make misogyny a hate crime british prime minister. Boris johnson has rejected the idea. Saying if you simply widen the scope of what you ask the police to do you'll just increase the problem. But after an appearance by justice secretary. Dominic robb on the bbc's breakfast program this morning a lot of people are wondering whether their government even understands what the word misogyny means it began. When the bbc's sally nugent asked mr rob about the prime minister's comments just wanted to start with something that we heard the prime minister. Say on this program yesterday. He said speaking to us live on breakfast yesterday. He does not support calls to make misogyny a hate crime. What's your view on that. Well i think we have often seen in the criminal justice system over decades people. Trying to legislate away. What is an enforcement problem. So i think insults in misogyny is of course absolutely wrong whether it's A man against the woman or against the man. But but. I don't think that will tackle the problem. In the cases like either the serra everard case which is very serious and we take very seriously all the white a challenge of getting more prosecutions through to a successful conviction for violence against women and girls. So i i understand why people raise it. It's a it's a. It's a legitimate issue and debate to have. But i don't think that will solve the problem that we've got more indeed gave confidence to the many women who after this era of rod case. I think a very fearful anxious knee positive. Reassurance need the kind of action that will fix the problem and that's what we're focused on. Okay just want to clarify some that. You said right at the start of our conversation this morning. You said misogyny is absolutely wrong. Whether it's a man against a woman or a woman against a man is that what you meant to say. What i meant is talking about things. Below the level of public order offenses of harassment intimidation which are rightly criminalized. If we're talking about effectively insults With the sexist faces. I don't that criminalizing. Those sorts of things will deal with the problem that we've got at the heart of this era everard case which is question. I think around Partly around The police but also the broader question in the fear women feel that their cases don't get to court and don't end up with a conviction and therefore just criminalising insulting language Even if it's misogynistic doesn't deal with the intimidation the violence and the much higher level of of offense And damage and harm that we really ought to be laser like focused in on the dictionary definition of is hatred against directed towards women. What if any so inciting hatred Intimidation harassment or criminal offenses. So what i would say. Don't quite other lower level offenses. What you want to do is focus on how you enforce the offenses that we've got in law which protect women from precisely the kind of intimidation harassment. That i think you're focusing on but reducing the bar and sang. actually insults should be criminalized. I don't think we'll deal with what women across this country Fearful of which is the risk to life or limb the risk of intimidation. The risk of lastman. All are those things are already criminal. The question is how we inforce those laws much more effectively. A much more sensitive lethal willing. That was uk justice secretary dominic robb appearing to repeatedly misunderstand the meaning of misogyny while speaking with the bbc's.

Shake, Rattle the Roles: Britains Cabinet Reshuffle

"Britain's prime minister starts today with a very different cabinet than he had yesterday on. Peculiarity of british politics is the cabinet reshuffle. A sudden reordering of who's in charge of what in the government this one was. Well telegraphed and members of parliament had been pressing. Boris johnson on. Who shouldn't be in charge of much with all the talk of cabinet. Reshuffle can the prime minister guarantee that the foreign secretary will finally be sucked that any shuffled or does he intend to the world and competence reshuffles serve many purposes rewarding loyalty punishing perceived foolishness and setting or resetting a political agenda but they're messy and embarrassingly public ministers shuffled past the cameras outside downing street toward their new fates expecting a promotion. Knew it might not seem like a great time for such disruption with the country focused on what the pandemic will bring next and on britain's role in the crumbling of afghanistan but the prime minister has plenty of other business still to attend to and now a new team to tackle. It was expected that. Boris johnson would hold reshuffle. He has space to do so. Now and macelroy is a senior editor at the economist. Britain's coming out of the pandemic enough to do something like that. that wouldn't look like distraction. He won a tight vote on tax raising last week to fund the nhs and social care so he feels that he sweeps all before him. And this is the time to clear out some deadwood and makes them promotions. And what is the dead wood. That's been cleared out with the most. Prominent deadwood. That went out was dominic robb brexit. Here a lawyer. He became foreign secretary and went through that role. I think without great distinction. But he did it and then got into terrible trouble. When the fall of kabul happened. He was on holiday with his family and he didn't really appear to respond quickly enough to the

"Is this juice being held over people's heads forever. Well other it'll be forever. I think there is a reshuffle. That's being planned. I don't think it's going to happen week. Having said that next week you can shove that bash above face. So i think that they were talking about not the new year but i my my gut feeling is now. It will be off to the party. Conferences could be full. I don't think it's going to be in the next few days. And who's for the high jump. I was reading something this morning. That suggested the dominic robb and pretty patel a both in trouble and that of course then provides the opportunity with a couple of source of you know plum jobs to do a much bigger reshuffle and possibly might be previously. I think originally the intention was this the for this to be a medium sized reshuffle and then the big one would come this time next year. So you have team ready for the next election. So i think that maybe some people who might be saved this year. But i think boris fills. I'm told that he. He's given all of his supporters the leadership campaign and its unity to prove themselves. Yeah on many of them happened. So the the failing is that he will be relatively a butchery in this shuffle. And i it's nicer to the long knives while. I'm not sure it be long knives but i think that might be more changes than possibly people were originally expecting. I think dominic robb is in a in a very tricky position now I don't think that he will be sacked. I think he will probably be over. The justice job apparently adequately understand this button. Two is tipped for the high jump I think he's actually been good minister. What something that would be a shame but rob is a lawyer so you can imagine that whether gras will think well you know what Saldana other answer. Yeah as quite difficult when you've had a great office state to be effectively demoted levi. Also thing i need to concentrate on my seat because that is a very marginal seat now. Initial bolton under pressure from liberals k. So he could say look. I'm not financing out. But i need to concentrate on my constituency to spend more time with my other people. Say yeah but you wouldn't have done that. You haven't been sacked which is absolutely true. Of course i think his position is. I'm pretty patel. I'm never quite sure. Because i had different things. Are some people say that. Boris loves pretty and others. He cited finds her intensely irritating. Now i come. Show provinces find also some cabinet ministers. He retired he that it's not necessarily reason to get rid of them..

"Of the select committee started creating a foreign office risk document from july suggesting that she thinks we're going to move rapidy and i think more generally when dominic robb was on that holiday. But didn't you had to work in the foreign office. Look at what was happening in. Afghanistan and see things were deteriorating. But i think you can see what the foreign office nine defenses. And i think you could also see Dominic robb very defensive when it came to the holiday getting. He was ten times when he went on holiday and refused to say but also in terms of his work he suggested had never thought about resigning. Sesame working constantly and i think also use the fact. He is traveling to the region very soon to say that. As a modem foreign secretary can work. Many where i think as mr boris johnson is adopting a modern prime minister who is on the west coast but not on holiday but working with his family in the house. So it's a new way for my working by the government. But i think on the specifics. Do we learn that much new. I think that dominic robb didn't skip around the fact that opening the foreign office do not know how many algebra afghans are stuck in afghanistan for the foreign office scheme particularly his at steam is so broad. I think it's much harder than the ministry defense scheme which is very specifically. Have you worked in a satin times with k which does mean. It's really hard to pinpoint. And then i think going forward. It was interesting the way dominic robb is talking about foreign policy because actually despite all the criticism recently of joe biden much anonymous on the case i could see where they're quite lot of common points of either james will of the standout moments we from the hearing because katie says he talks about intelligence. The idea that kabul would not force your other. This lead steady slow deterioration strawberry because in full commission spectator magazine cases into your defense ben wallace. He basically says it wasn't a failure of intelligence he all these collapses when of states in the happen they happen very quickly. That is one of the nature of it and that is one of the limits or what intelligence can do i've in case. There were no disasters. But i think he didn't actually aren't any of the questions about you. Know when he went and all day what is there was also question here about working method. He's one of the criticisms of famous. He hasn't spoken to british ambassadors in the region. He's an to pick up the phone to get a central on the ground to come out with dip tells he gets. I think sometimes so you do get more this different people different ways you get more speaking people directly but you do about reading their written reports there are different thing and then i mean there is a question here again the to come at cases into ben wallace implicit criticism. Which is he's about in that into how getting out is the most difficult thing..

"Hello and welcome to coffee. House shows the spectators. Daily politics podcast. I'm cindy and i'm joined by katie and james site so today actually dominic robb was in front of the foreign affairs. Select committee answering questions about his handling of afghanistan situation. His we say we wanted to get some of those mcgahn ahead through but the buses arrange to collect them take them to.

So let's let's stick with sodas because the defense secretary let's stick with the same issue because you can't say whether the hill not so you're not answering the question allow to move on defense. Actually who i think is credited by most having worked through this crisis. Johnson the question for us sixty so. Let's move on katie. How did you think dominic robb did because he does seem a little bit irritated. At times i being are so many hard questions and run on quite a long time. I think ahead of his parents. It was dubbed almost by some as a make-or-break appearances. I was always skeptical of just in the sense that we know that. Boris johnson doesn't really play by conventional wisdom when it comes to ministers being sacked pushed out. He he tends to stick his ministers. But i also think that it wasn't the horror show just objectively. It could have been dominic robb. It doesn't mean to say what particularly well. But i didn't hear much weaker than he was going in. And you can see the line defense. That dominic robb is going full which we talked about yesterday which is openly say. Mrs santa military intelligence values. And that's why people could have. God doesn't link so specifically with his holiday. But the implication is they can have made plans time specific because everything was just to take a longer time and actually it was unlikely that kabila with fall this year..

"Hello and welcome to coffee. House shows the spectators. Daily politics podcast. I'm cindy and i'm joined by james aside and katie booze. So this morning. Dominic robb gave another broadcast round and this is what he had to say. The best central assessment was that you would see a slow deterioration from the end of the draw down in september and that that kabul would not would not have fallen for several months wasn't intelligence failing. I think clearly questions around the the assessment was clearly wrong. That's that first of all that was shared widely across international partners. And that's certainly not the the foreign office's lead responsibility but we've cost planned accordingly. What did you make of his broadcast around this morning. We know that of all ministers classy involved in the evacuation of citizens and afghans from afghanistan is dominic robb. He's received criticism. And i think we could see today from that morning ran the fact that he was fighting back. It was the rob fightback us. Sold foreign secretary took that have delays. The fact that he was taken aback wasn't personal fault of his because he was on a beach but instead he wants to defense intelligence. And i think you can start to see a narrative coming from the foreign office which is seeking to absolve them of some of the blame that has been placed in that direction. It comes time invasion. Lots of briefings for dominic robb is going. Gee pushed from his role in the next reshuffle.

Dominic robb has said that the uk has evacuated more than seventeen thousand people from afghanistan including over five thousand uk nationals. He also said that the uk would hold the taliban to its pledge of safe passage for those who wants to leave. But what does this all mean for the people and in particular. The women left behind living with a very different social order. I'll be correspondent. Yaldo hakim his hair. Yaldo what are you hearing from the women that you speak to afghanistan. At the moment you know emma. I've been speaking to so many young women. Two girls to to mothers sisters who are an even fathers who are so desperately concerned about the next phase in this country. What will come next there. The last twenty years has been filled with hope optimism. Freedom opportunity and of course there have been dark moments in the. us led invasion of afghanistan. But in general the country has produced some of the brightest and best that we have seen in decades in the country and so these people who have become judges female.

Those who haven't been able to get out of the country but in general they are terrified and feel uncertain about their future and in terms of the desire to leave some of the women that you're talking to what is that is because of course we have to remember that.

Tim bale good to have you both with us. Dominic robb a lot of pressure on him again today the times reporting over the weekend. How there's massive blame game going on within government today. There's a big meeting of the g. Seven to try to somehow coordinate how the biggest powers again to deal with this future taliban government. What do you make of this. Well i think. I think it's time we all moved on from rob's holiday and whether on whether or not lucy was closed. I think we are to have to acknowledge. The taliban a we made test their regime their attitude to women that criminal justice but we are constantly dealing with other brutal and misogynistic countries notley saudi arabia. We always a half the other night on time radio. Actually we were talking about paul canyons. Marvelous book on romania and looking at pictures of the queen sitting next to ceaucescu at the time. When the romanians were under the caution and mad regime and ceaucescu was still taking money to release jews to israel for ransom. International diplomacy has to work that way if the taliban prove able to keep order and to prevent terrorist plans on their turf and maintain reasonable reasonable conditions on their borders. I think we have to acknowledge them. There's no point sort of virtue signal and holding on those wouldn't work rachel. Would you think on this. I think it'll be right. Although it has to be deeds rather than words you know all of this. We're going to recognize women's rights. Under islamic law at center that that sounds a bit dodgy to me but libya's right in the end diplomacy is about You know what's in the national interest in protecting if you can You know what some terrorist attacks by keeping links with the telecom. That's that's one thing. But i do think maybe lippi's letting dominic robb of forbidden lately. I'm not. I think you're right lippi that we've got to move on from the paddle boarding in the holiday and all the facts but for me. It wasn't the issues what happened with that weekend. It's the fact that for months. He wasn't making the cools he should have done. He wasn't preparing. He wasn't focusing on afghanistan. Since eight. four. I don't care really where he was on holiday. But he should be making cools to pakistan. So weeks will months. He should have been preparing for the evacuation making sure. The interpreter has had a way out way before that we came when he was on the pedal it wasn't on the path aboard. And that really is. I think not sort of wide appropriate for the government. Put their distracted. They saw policy only in terms of brexit. And but there's no sort of vision of walt. Global britain is or were you know who are allies now. Our boat is exhibition. onum afghanistan. they just didn't have a wide of youth and that. I think he's a problem. Serov and for boris johnson. And the whole government touchy young. We heard in the times over the weekend that robert apparently not even spoken to his afghan pakistan counterparts for some six months libby when i just withdrew new rich rachel's rights i mean there's been an enormous sort of shortage of forward thinking on that and i think an underestimate of the taliban i think is writer. Western powers we put in this government in afghanistan. You know they can. they can cope. It's just been apparently to close watchers. Apparently they couldn't cope for a very long time So yes i think. The dam distraction of brexit has been the worst bitta visit may in the end proved to be a good thing or a bad thing. I don't know as a distraction in a combination of brexit uncovered. But he was the foreign secretary. He is the foreign secretary. The front's supposed to be looking widely the whole world. Yeah i mean rachel you very close watcher. And lots of good contacts in politics we having some Of course unnamed source saying. That rob is toast. Would you think well. The problem is if i johnson gets rid of him. He's got to have somebody else in that role and i. It's this really. The decision for boys from scenarios is he going to have a cabinet all the best people available to him to do those jobs or is it going to be still the cabinet of stooges brexit loyalists. Who do what he says and so fall. He's he's chosen this sort of stooges rather than the most talented. I mean there are so many people on the back benches in the toy. Putt he'd let alone people being thrown out of Tory benches You know sort of shameful really feud rory stewart Couple of weeks ago when just when when this was all really falling apart in afghanistan and he so knowledgeable impressive. he's no longer even in the house of commons. He said he couldn't see avoid back to being an mp though he'd love to be served the public in some way or another. I'm not that's a real shame so whether or not dominate raw himself survives. I think probably. It'll be to do with the boris johnson. Thinks he can afford to sack. Him is more about boris johnson sadly and his kind of Confidence in his own position than the country.

"What did you. i thought it was interesting. In the first few minutes he actually took interventions rather than getting into the main flow and and made a point of it. He was oh cool. I want to hear my colleagues and then quickly adding because he realized that man probably seven every that seconds he decided he was not going to take semi interventions but as you say when he was responding to them. You didn't really get a sense. He was engaging too much in the point of making generally speaking. And i think on. The theresa may one adjoining boris johnson once again to conversation about when he had spoken to people but i think it was also quite clear from that intervention and others that boris johnson is adamant that there was not a military solution to this off to the us decided to pull out and that's something does put him at loggerheads with several of his mp's hugh i think d- believe that at the current situation that could have been avoided or the very least could have been less chaotic than it has played. And i think that you can. Boris johnson trying to mountain defense. But also as a result of that not fully engaging when it comes into specifics. She took free that. I think it's fair to say that. If boris johnson had an uncomfortable session the person feeling the most discomfort was foreign secretary. Dominic robb. He didn't like he's had a particularly relaxing. Holiday has to be said what holiday he he did have before he eventually decided to come back to this culture. He was specifically named in a number of speeches particularly case star. Who said you kind of coordinated international response from the beach. Katie what do you think is the mood amongst conservative. Back benches about raw. He was clearly taking a lot of the criticisms very personally and seemed very very angry. Actually during a lot of the a lot of the opening speeches and i noticed. One point or celia conservative backbencher made a point of order to complain that in blackford speech which was characteristically long had turned into a conversation between him and dominic robb. Wh where do you think the foreign secretary standing is amongst conservative. mp's generally as you say he looked very unhappy for at that potty because you had opposition figures you can't bring up the holiday and that was clearly riling dominic robb dating there. Was that much sympathy on the tory. Benches dominic robb. At the moment. I think that if you look at the general anger in the fact that this really not much tool. That's being supportive towards boris johnson. The government so far in this debate some of the most difficult inventions with the government have come from the tory side. I think if you if you look at that. I think it reflects the sense that the government has mishandled this now. There is a debate of in the tory party. About how exactly have mishandled it so there is some do think that there is an alternative after your side to pull out. There was a way to have that continued military presence. And that could avoid some of this. There are obviously gene. Do you think probably it was inevitable that the uk would have to leave afghanistan.

"I think for the case side. One thing is unique. I think when joe biden came in lots of people particularly those who know those he wanted. I think to see him as very different. Donald trump for lots of reasons but there was lots of care you would have some president. He wanted to work more. Would restate that place in the us as a global player. And i think that that comment is just perpetuating this idea of an america first policy and he wants to strike quite a different tone. So it's going to be interesting in terms of the package tomorrow that we obviously hearing from dominic robb and the moment in terms of what they're going to be offering thames of afghan refugees coming to the uk by think there is determination to strike a very different tone from joe biden and not be able to be accused of britain fast policy. Even if you have a situation likely the has not come particularly well over the past few days just on that katie. And sticking with you how conservatives feeling about the performance of dominic robb in particular. He's he's now back from holiday but there are still stories during rounds about him spending a significant amount of time on the beach something. The foreign office doesn't dispute. He was on the beach. But they say this He wasn't on the beach for an extended. Period of time are conservative. Mp's feeling generally pretty angry about these sorts of they understand that even foreign secretaries have holidays. I think to repeat previous onset. Not good i think was actually quite striking. Dominic robb situation is. you don't really get sense. That ministers scrambling to come out and defend dominic robb on the holiday issue. There's definitely some saying that. This is a distraction from the much. More serious harder problem to solve. Which is what you do now in afghanistan and it's obviously easier to bash politician on the head food. The holiday issue is simply by ocd. Think there is a sense that it is a strange misjudgment to stay there. As long as he did and to fly back when effectively kabila had already moved over to taliban rue so. I think that she surprised people because dominic grabs reputation within. Cabinet is being someone who does other things to letter in his very responsible. I think the decision is seen as a strange run by colleagues. And not helping with the fact that you have a situation where bush has been chairing cobras but over the weekend when lots. This is playing the voices filling the airways. Were not those of ministers now. It could be because they're working jersey behind the scenes. Say it wasn't the time to interview. But i think instead it was figures that thompkin hot johnny mass of the former defense minister coming out and talking about it and i think the silence initially at least coupled with the fact that you had done it. Grab on his holiday. Beans people are less willing to give it a favorable interpretation as to what was really going on. We'll phrase a robe has been trying to make up for that today by talking about what he describes as a bespoke programme of assistance for afghan refugees while the labor party stephen kinnock in particular have been calling for britain to welcome tens of thousands of afghans To this country as they tried to flee. Do you think that the government is is really got its finger on the pulse of how much support afghans trying to free the country again to need. Well there's so many questions including like for civil how they have galveston how they would make the journey. No dominic grab does have a good record on this. I think what he's done on.

They claim wasn't matt. There were concerns about hygiene outside and inside rooms. They actually been there for. At least three days they're funded that. Actually the people in hotels out wearing masks. They're allowed to go out to smoke. Cigarettes which makes a nonsense of the isolation is over to have. The idea is actually putting into place something to see it through. Isn't it but as with enforcement across the board not just the relationships with the wider social distancing and wide social an measures restrictions in place is difficult to fulsome. We do rely on people. Do not think but there is very clearly that penalties and the enforcement and the accountability as we already showing with with the fines that have levied which have been high level finds the phrase that they use this quarantine. It's not holiday so that the several things going on in there so there's dominic robb evading spectacularly the question about so you're making people go into hotel at their own expense. Throw that price if you're in hotel for ten days and it costs you a hundred seventy pounds of night for a hotel you expect some level of service and the question quote riley to hear ms. So who's who's enforcing that they are provided with a humane service and they're protected from being outside or the staff dot wary miles all of that stuff who's enforcing that and he he just spectacularly goes off and says well it's very difficult to enforce social distancing we're relying on people doing the right thing and then ends up with one of the customers saying they said to us. This is quarantine holiday. So this whole implication behind is that you've come into this country from red listed country. It's your fault so you've just gotta suffer the consequences. It's it's proper victim blaming because they're saying go you know of course he's on hygiene. Of course we're not going to make sure that the isolation rules are in force because it's this holiday you why would we both into ended up. It's both effective. Yeah and no awful. Yeah yeah yeah yeah and actually did not bothering to do either because somewhere along the line. Someone's making money out of it and it's been shifted out to private hands so the government doesn't have to do anything about it and they would just say very. I think it slipped out we relying on people to do the right thing and actually what is the right thing. We've we're doing the quarantining and yet nobody's stopping staff not wearing mouse. Going people going outside if you'll know if you know influencing in some way or having a system that it really isn't any different from self-isolation in your visit if the if they just trusting the people just stay in the hotel and not not makes with other people go out perfect then it's not. Yeah it's not any different from saying okay. You can come in the country the house now and don't go out for ten days. You just trusting the separately citizens so they live here. Yeah yeah i.

"Is no greater way for a country to be reminded of the impact of the corona virus than to hear its own leader is in intensive care with the disease. Boris Johnson. The British Prime Minister spent the last twenty four hours in an ICU in a hospital in London. The news has up ended the political establishment in Britain. The country's Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb has stepped in to deputise for Boris Johnson. But it is not clear what powers he actually has leaving. Brits wondering just who is running the country as it faces its greatest crisis in decades. The world's oil barry joins us from London. Or what is the latest Boris Johnson? Orla where we understand. Boris Johnson is stable. He spent the night as you said. In intensive care today Downing Street reporting that he's in good spirits he's not on a ventilator but he is receiving. Jn Many people who end up in intensive care with krona virus to need ventilators. And that's the reason Downing Street said that he was put in intensive care the ventilation would be nearby but they stated today that he doesn't have pneumonia which is positive needless to say he still is in ICU. And it's a very serious condition for prime minister to be in. Boris Yeltsin requested that the Foreign Secretary deputise for him. What does it mean in effect? Is that the official line of succession. It's a good question in effect. Dominic Robb will oversee the cabinet meetings. Quite Boris. Johnson is incapable of doing so and I've heard numerous government. Figures already coming out today to say that the most important strategies for the coming weeks in terms of tackling the virus which is essentially all government is doing right now. Have already been undertaken so Dominic. Robb is following the rules and strategies already laid down by Boris Johnson before him but the government representatives themselves were sort of at pains to say the country can be wrong Andrea cabinet system. How we Rhonette run as here role than needing the prime minister to be in position and to be in charge have listened to the former leader of the Conservative Party. In Duncan Smith. Talking about this today not presidential system. We have a prime ministers and somebody said I must equal. The rest of those equals are still in post normally robbins wanted or he will lead through this. Where the difficulty? I guess lies. Everyone is talking about how these cabinet committees come together and they make a collective decision but what happens when the leaders of each of those committees if they disagree in one of the big decisions that will have to be made in Britain in the coming weeks is in regards to the lock down. So we're under lockdown for the last three weeks and that three weeks is running out next week. So decision has to be made. That would have been a decision. The Boris Johnson would have made to the general public now. The understanding is that there's some disagreement within the cabinet about whether it should be easier. Weather should be kept in place. Can Dominic Robb. Then make that decision. Does he have the power to make that decision so he was asked the question? What happens if there is a disagreement? We've got very clear. Directions very clear instructions from the Prime Minister and we focused with total unity and total resolve on implementing them so that when he's back hope in very short order we will have made the progress that would expect so as you can see. He didn't really answer the question mark. Oh He's sort of fluffed it to be honest but Downing Street's again today they have been a pain to say. Boris Johnson still very much. The Prime Minister Queen Elizabeth made recently was roundly described as powerful and inspirational speech. Even church Chilean and she doesn't speak that often. She has a country to be ambitious to band together. Is the UK finding new leadership in the Queen or even royal critic softening to what her presence can convey at this time? I think in a sense. If we're to feel little roger last right now and if people are saying that they feel that there. Isn't somebody in charge in ten Downing Street? There is a sense that the queen brought a sense of leadership and unity in her speech. And I think it was a sense of sort of optimism and hope that people needed right now because well honestly you know. It's pretty much in short supply at the moment. The world's oil berry in London. Thanks very much thanks marco. Because of disease Israeli security forces have imposed a blockade on a city of two hundred thousand people. Almost no one in no one out again. This has nothing to do with the Israeli Palestinian conflict. The residents are ultra Orthodox Jews when the corona virus hit religious leaders from their community. Were slow to adopt the government's recommendations on social distancing now people in the town of Bananas Barack are paying the price. Naomi's EVOLA has the story from Tel Aviv. The ultra-orthodox or redeem as they're known in Israel make up about thirteen percent of Israel's population. But they now account for a third of the country's corona virus cases. One expert says up to forty percent of the city of Benin Brock could now be infected.

The three European Union countries being pressed on one side by President Donald Trump to abandon the agreement like he did unilaterally in two thousand eighteen and on the other side from Iran to provide had enough economic incentives for them to roll back their violations now. The Europeans have reluctantly triggered the accords dispute mechanism to force Iran into discussions. Starting the clock on a process that could result in the snapback UN and EU sanctions on Iran the three nations specifically avoided threatening the sanctions while emphasizing hopes for a negotiated resolution.

All aboard the Boris Express

"Sensible Rex it fights off the threat from the insurgent Brexit party. And I have to say that, that is a the job that I believe I'm best suited to do today. Bus Johnson came out fighting yesterday to finally launch his bid the next prime minister as the field of candidates narrows impulsion way out in front can anything derail the bars express. Also this week, we'll be looking at whether any of the contenders promises on Brexit tax cuts, and the economy actually stuck up past all in this week's politics weekly. It was standing remain the at the Notre Johnson's leadership bid yesterday with hard Brexit is and conservative rising stars. All that show support with maybe an on the job in the next cabinet at the time of recording. We don't know who hasn't who hasn't got the sixteen th needs to stay on the list of contenders. But we can probably see in that Johnson Dominic Robb, Jeremy hunt, Michael Savage, avid, and Matt Hancock all on there at the moment. The contest is bosses to lose. Is he really the best man for the job or anything? Well, I'm joined to discuss all this by Isabel Harbin, from the spectator Jonathan list from British influence and politics from the guardian. How do you think the boss when yesterday sort of emerge unscathed sufficiently boring enough? Well, that was certainly a was to make it doll safety, I, which is really the, the theme of borstal since campaign when he's allowed out to speak. The aim is basically to try to make him look a bit more serious politician. And so, in terms of his speech, and in terms of I think the way he answered the questions will didn't answer them in loss of cases. I think his team would have been quite pleased with that. There was one thing that, that over-shadowed it bit thing, which was that some MP's as she heckled journalist for asking Johnson, a very reasonable question about his comments about walking women who were berkers, and it's often the case activists from parties. Get annoyed with journalists for us dear leader inconvenient questions, but it's still quite unusual for MP's to do that. And I'm not God load of welfare candidate. It's very badly for. Candidate. It makes them look defensive as they call something to hide and what I thought made it. Worse was Liz trust. One of Boris Johnson supporters that went on TV to defend her colleagues heckling saying that they were entitled to question the questions of journalists, which, I think it would be much easier. Just to say, I think some of my colleagues over excited here can also himself, the, the idea of being PM. I've been laughed at a few months ago, and an and I think that probably we thought that his colleagues had lost trusted him toy MP's lost trust in him. Particularly his performances foreign secretary. Why are they running behind? This is being quite extraordinary. It's the conservative party completely losing any sense of responsibility for the fate of the nation, the party that used to be the solid, the reliable, the party of government has become wild reckless revolutionary because they think he is the only person who might. Squeak past in general election, and save them from both thorough and from Corbin unsaved, their seats and save that party. He might on the other hand be the final explosive device that blows the whole thing apart. It might be that he is so poorly that if he really does take us out of Europe. Ota no deal that the conservative party makes it self unelectable forever afterwards because of the self inflicted chaos caused, but they reckon that as things stand, he might save them this eat a very low reason choosy. Doesn't. He He seems seems to to have been. been concentrating quite a lot on just on just securing the backing of MP's announcing a thing you know, particularly controversial into things. I think a tax cut and also that he would leave with thirty. I is just him kind of keeping things. Very simple. As best route to success is only seem sort of the moment. If you all the kind of the pole position candidate of your day you won't have any controversy under Johnson is famous for that. And so he's, he's just letting the ship go on. If you like Theresa May to the Cima thing in a way in two thousand sixteen. When she just washed everyone else, self combustion. She was the last person standing there. The problem for Johnson is that he's told the truth extraordinarily when he said that the tour spaced extinction, if it didn't liver Brexit both thirty Tober there is no way on earth. They can deliver Brexit thirty post Tober. There are a couple of weeks parliamentary time after the summer recess where nothing can be done sell you that can. No more renegotiation, and no more led to legislation. And so he's already made a rod for his own back, that the first thing he'll have to do is prime minister is go to the EU and asked to stay in it. So already the trust will be will we smash I can't understand why the Tories don't understand that. And conversely, if you did try to get that no deal. As police said, if you actually went over the cliff, and then Boris Johnson would never be forgiven out the toys, wouldn't either and then parliament, probably humiliates him and try to stop it anyway. So there's really no way through him that he can emerge from this with any kind of credibility whatsoever. Smell somebody other candidates have tried to gain a bit of credibility people like Jamie hunt, and my ankle by saying, actually it's very difficult to leave with no deal deal no deal by thirty because his Dunton's laid out. You know, it's difficult to negotiate in that anything new in that time. And also because parliament is like to stop an ideal Brexit. Do any of those candidates avenue chance of beating him when it comes to the runoff thinking people? Turn me on all the sausage avid month ago. Jeremy hunt or such genital Mike who gave the most light, he might Hancock, he mentioned, this is probably going to get knocked out, either in this round or the next one because he just doesn't have enough of a constituency within the conservative party and his pitch. We went to his launch on Monday, his pitch was slightly crazed or have. Difficult to sort of pinned on what he believed other than motivational aphorisms. I felt like I was spinning class well to relationship. The other say are trying to sort of offer a bit more realistic Brexit plan. And that's tricky in the current Tory party, because the mood in the party is not really one for any further delay. They're still reacting to the procrastination of Theresa May. I'm perhaps, not looking at the situation that she's left the party. And in trying to work out the best way out of that they just don't want anyone who's going to put it off any more, and that's why Boris Johnson. Dominic Robb were the only two candidates who even got auditions before the European research group, which is the, the most Brexit he group in, in the conservative party, and has a huge amount of power, not just in the parliament party. But also, I think amongst the conservative membership. So it's tricky, because I think there is Brexit. Purity contest going on at the moment that doesn't bear a great deal of relation to reality of those putty of, of Michael Savage. Avid, Jeremy hunter DC is having the most. Likelihood of beating Johnson, what I suppose it would be go, if he can recover from the ca- Cain hypocrisy, which really sunk him oughta rolls astonishing. But maybe he can be forgiven in which case he's much the strongest contender. He knows burst back front if he really decides to put the knife in again, as he did last time he could be very effective when one of the candidates, not really talking about a tool anymore. She was quite strangest Dominic Robb. Who did you know sort of seen as maybe he could be the true Brexit tier candidate when Boris you know, it folded early than him said he was gonna vote trees may deal. But he's lost all of that year. G support to Boris what he used on the sue the winner under Johnson is going to match rob pound for pound in Brexit. Then those no reasons about rob who is much less sympathetic charming character. You have question marks over his personal character, which haven't quite been addressed. And who is has the kind of eight. Tori. Boy thing about him bay, which is going to not be particular turn, onto the tweet party was certainly not to the wider electric. Yes. So that's always don't since we've not now all the space is really ain't rob is also tainted, his, he didn't leave the cabinet obviously, after the check is agreement that was Boris, who did that? And, and Boris Johnson is therefore able to, to claim that he is more Brexit Pierce. We come back to this incredible sort of holy Brexit. Contest is going on the Johnson survived. The backstop no one's talking about the box December. Twenty seventeen Theresa May sign us up to customs union a great time. Johnson was he knew what it was. And then after extraordinarily when he left the company said he didn't know what it was. So he was basically saying that he was the gullible stupid or liar. I didn't seem to matter because he's tashaun. It's fascinating how there's actually a higher bar for the behavior of all the other candidates part from Boris. Johnson is something his team say the whole, always purse. Life is priced in. It's almost as though he could actually have killed people. And that would also trunks shooting Fifth Avenue, the front runners who've said that they are the two, I suppose we, if we still count rob amongst the front runners that they've said that we prepared to take the UK out of the EU with no deal on October thirty first Burston Dominic Robb, the others of, of sort of said that they think it's possible that parliament would be up to stop that. But we saw yesterday at there was an opportunity for parliament to set in motion for that to be another to at least reserve another date to try and pass a law to stop it. And Isabel some people listening and probably anyone who's not been following this with the minute detail of a full-time job gonna find it quite quoted to hear that it was defeated last night, feels like parliament's voted against no deal. Quite a few times, and what can you maybe you could explain to me about what happened last night? Here's those interesting topics going on last night. You had a group of conservative MPC voted with labour on this vote, which was to allow Paul. Lament to rule out no deal in future vote just to complicating confuse matters even further. But then you had a group of labor MP's, who voted with the government people like katoey, who obviously, managed to enrage their policy on, on regular basis, with their with that Brexit views, and you also had a number of ubstantially as well. And so this is turned the labor party in on itself again, with the very pro remain pro second referendum, anti no do, and, like, Ben Bradshaw, friends since turning on their colleagues and saying how much they've let the party downs. We, we've got another labor split here. This is a big boost to those candidates. He believe parliament actually won't stop new deal. I suppose it is if, if there is a mechanism for stopping teaches clear what that make an ISM could be done that all of the people like all of let win been out this morning that the Taurean peon and the former Tory bowl saying that this was the last chance, there are no more assigned opposition day debates. Which the government has to grant, but in power to grant labor time to have debates on things where they want, but those, those days of now, run out, and there's also no obvious legislation going through parliament for for amendments to be attitude that could stop no deal. So what is the root pop from a confidence vote without is the nuclear button, the confidence. But I think that we need to look at John berko hear abo- cove is cost himself as some kind of maverick revolutionary when it sees him, and he is prepared to cost aside, conventions and rewrite the rulebook. I mean, I'm not an expert in, in three parliamentary etiquette and protocol. So I don't know exactly how much power he has. But it seems that he can rewrite us in may sort of as he goes along. So if he decides if parliament has a will, to introduce legislation, very quickly as cupid early this year, and they all given an opportunity to vote for that. I just can't see any way which was say no. The procedure says, unfortunately, what happened last night is that. Parliament decided not to have the opportunity, it'll make it very difficult. I think for berko to devise anything also you're asking him to do something way out of anything he's done so far. I think we're going to end up with whether there will be enough conservative MP's willing to bring the house down willing to have a virtual no-confidence in what who will presumably be Boris MP appear them and a call for general election. And I just don't know when it comes to it, whether the likes of people who have very anti Brexit, whether they'll really go that for what do you think is about? Do you think enough of them to actually agree with? That would be if you get government. And then in the confidence that you lose it. Yeah, I think that is your way basically saying, I've it with the conservative party who knows that things are quite Phibro at the moment till they, there is less of a thirst for leaving parties given. What's happened to change? You K because I think that stuff Shane, how difficult it is to, to go to loan from a big structure this being rumbling along for many decades labor LaTour. He's, I suppose we can, we also have to see what happens over the course the leadership contest. If Boris Johnson has heart and his position over summer to try and win over very hard. Brexit. Selectric una comes parliament is still sitting at the end of July, when he's elected then that could be the moment where his colleagues, Dominic grieve just in greening, maybe say in office enough. You're going to take on the touch toba. We know having it. And then you trigger that election, when there's still time to stop no deal. Three months later, but they will not be allowed to stand as conservative. I mean that only. Seats are there enough of them, we don't sacrifice their careers for the sake of the country? And that's what it'll come to possibly. There are enough noble minded people willing to do that. I mean, I guess one of the things that we haven't touched on his whether it's it is possible for any of these candidates to get any kind of new deal bioterr- thirty. I, I mean, we of laughing about that. But if it comes to the crunch, d think that there are people who maybe didn't believe Theresa May was prepared to take that with no deal. But may believe that someone I on snus. Well, this is the line that the sort of the Boris style candidates of news, the European Union, saying they're not going to reopen the withdrawal agreement, they're not going to start renegotiating any way. They say will they would say that wouldn't they that's kind of, you know, they're starting line in the Goshi -ation, and perhaps studies, the stance, the European Union, that will then fold when suddenly this new powerful conservative leader comes in, but even. The leadership candidates who claim they're trying to be more realistic like Jeremy hunt, for instance, still saying they want to reopen the withdrawal agreement. So all of them are prompting something that according to what has been said, so far is not realistic. How would it look from Europe? The EU is tied to these games it's actually written into the extension that you can't renegotiate withdrawal agreements that is put, so the box office and changing the only thing in might be able to. And this is a purse is to renegotiate a political declaration, which isn't going to be enough, because it has no legal way. But more importantly, there are only two things you can do the political declaration, the first is to soften it. So you explicitly asked to negotiate accustomed on a single market, which is obviously not help any, the Tories or you hard in it in the pad on the backstop, just Northern Ireland and not cleaves the concert. India's partying one clean slice. So there's nothing that they can do, which will help them tool on the backstop is simply not of negotiation. It's only use political interest to sacrifice its. Leverage for a prime minister. He hates them and the feelings mutual. Thanks willie. Back after this.

"dominic robb" Discussed on News-Talk 1400 The Patriot

"Welcome back, America. Hugh Hewitt, those up the bumper music there, I thought the show is starting over to never do that to me. I thought, oh my gosh. It's the beginning of the show, and it's eight thirty three in the let me catch up on the British election understand that the special relationship matters to us a lot. Great Britain is a nuclear power. They have gone to war without everywhere. We ever gone to war, South Korea Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq. The Brits have been there with their nuclear power. They're rebuilding their craft cares to with the area jump-jet. They're buying new thirty five. See, I believe they are important. We want them to leave the European Union. I do. I believe they could be. They could regain their past glory. As a trading company has a trading country opened a deal that everyone unburdened by the bureaucracy out of the European Union. And they put the question to the people three years ago. David Cameron won a majority government on the promise to have a referendum on whether or not to stay in the European Union and the people of Great Britain, voted very healthy margin four or five percent. They would four percent fifty to forty eight leave leave everyone in the country knew it was being talked about, like the vote for two thousand sixteen Hillary or Trump Trump won the constitutional majority. He didn't win the popular vote. I know that he won the constitutional majority of the way we've elected president since the framing of the constitution, and so Great Britain matters a lot to us. They've had great prime ministers like magic Thatcher. They've had terrible. Prime Minister Gordon Brown. They've had good prime ministers. Tony Blair had week, prime ministers. Theresa May they have had funny prime ministers like the MAC. No. They've had Wilson that all sorts of he was terrible. We need a good one right now because Theresa May has been terrible. Infectious. And they're not out of the European Union yet. So a number of conservatives the way that it works over there as what prime minister resigns as Theresa May has as the leader of her party. She remains the caretaker, prime minister and the party election, new leader who will in turn be elected prime minister by the members of parliament. Well, how does a party with a hundred and forty thousand card carrying members? I mean, these are the people really work the hustings these central committee people. These are the people who are delegates, you know, the equivalent to delegates at the Republican national convention, the democratic national convention. They are the party. How do those one hundred forty thousand people pick a party leader interns, becomes the prime minister, will they vote. But there are a dozen. It's like the democratic primary. There doesn't a fifteen different members of the Tory party who want to be prime minister, and they've put out their hands and they've said they wanted to be, and they divide into two categories beginning those who were. Leaving when Briggs it was on the ballot and those who were for remaining when breakfast Brexit was on the ballot three years ago. Theresa May was the remainder and never made a liquor sense to me that she should be the prime minister after David Cameron resigned and he resigned because he said, I was the remainder. I don't think I can leave a government that is committed to leaving and so pick a new prime minister and they did they pick threes. I mean, she she persuaded her colleagues that she ought to be it. She made Boris Johnson or foreign secretary Boris Johnson led the leave campaign with one principal deputy guy, Michael gov, who doesn't look the part. But he's very smart. Also believed to be very slippery. So Boris Johnson police to be very Radic and a lot of fun. And former mayor of London, and a powerful personality says, I'm going to become the next prime minister, I'm going to stand, Michael gov who wants supported Boris Johnson for prime minister then stabbed him in the back fairly famous move and British parliament parliamentary politics and went over to Theresa May wants to be prime minister, one, other major lever wants to be prime minister Dominic Robb, so there are two lever three levers running Boris. G-o-v and Ron two of those three say come October thirty one we are leaving deal or no deal. Michael go says we can't leave without a deal. Michael go admitted over the weekend based upon reports of a biography about the come out about him. He was something of a cocaine guy back in the day when he was a journalist. I don't know many journalists back in the day, who weren't cocaine guys. But then again, I wasn't around London much I'd have to ask Mark Stein about that. So mike. Oh, by the way, we don't allow admitted cocaine users into the United States. So it's going to be tough to become the prime minister. If you're we've Brits before who don't cocaine problems from coming the United States. We don't want cocaine in the United States. And so he says he's reformed and using a lot of time. We'll see how that plays out, but he's daddy that, that one's done. So from the leave side, there are Dominic Robb, and Boris Johnson. Over on the leave with a deal side, these are the remains got religion. They stayed in the government. They didn't quit like David Cameron. They didn't fail like Theresa May. They say they can deliver deal to get us out. They want to lead the conservatives into the next election. They want to be the prime minister. There are a lot of the number one is a guy named Jeremy hunt. Now, if you sent out the central casting, and you asked, please send us your very best central casting candidate for prime minister of Great Britain. They would send you back. Jeremy hunt. I mean had in the pocket the whole prince of Wales handsome. He's smart. He's our ticket president likes him and Boris. Bo. Joe Boris Johnson nickname is the rambling wreck from Georgia Tech honest to goodness, the guy hasn't been to Barbara who's competent and a hundred years. And that's part of his charm. He's just kind of disheveled. Birdie Worcester character. And if you don't birdie Worcester is I can't tell you character from fiction. PG Wodehouse anyway. So Joe is going to what the way you get to is that all the members of parliament who are conservatives. And I think parliament's threatened thirty that got just under half. So what's that add up to a hundred? Seventy one hundred sixty different people hundred sixty members of parliament vote in a series of rounds they call them round and the round where. You've got to get at least fifteen percent of the hundred sixty which would be nine or ten for round one or you don't get to go around to, and then got ten people. They vote again with a hundred and sixty people and the one with the least votes dropped off. And so you can give your buddy of I could be nominated for prime minister. So I would encourage if you're listening in Great Britain, I'd like to be on one of those ballots. Throw one my way, members of Parliament, I, I can't serve if nominated I cannot run if elected I cannot serve because I'm proud American. But, you know be fun at any of that. They get down to nine then it again. They get down to eight to get down to seven, they get down to six five four three two, and then some people drop out, eventually, they get to, to get to a finalist and a semi-finalist to people, the person with the most votes of parliament and the second most boats doesn't matter what order they in. That's the ballot that goes to the hundred and forty thousand. Electorates. Hundred and forty thousand members of parliament. So if you get seventy thousand and one year the next prime minister Boris Johnson is heavily favored. I mean I should look up Ladbrokes. There's a. Betting house right in Ladbrokes online betting you can't use it till legal in the United States. But Ladbrokes always has a, a political thing broke prime minister. Let's see where the odds are this morning. I think for Johnson is the prohibitive favorite. But you never know until you actually find Ladbrokes and prime minister because they are constantly changing, and there's a big they call them big beasts. Big players. Michael Hesseltine, John Major people have been former prime minister and defence ministers and stuff like that. Right now. Boris Johnson is a five to four favourite. To become the next Tory leader. And that's prime minister Dominic Robb is a four to one favorite. Andrea lead. Cin is attend to one favorite Andrea led some though, who's a lever a remaining excuse me. She's a remainder. Andrea, led some picks up no. No support this morning. Michael go visit ten to one. Jeremy hunt is at twelve to one and Peggy. More dent is at twenty to one side, Javi, twenty two one. Those are really the only potentials when Jeremy hunt picked up, amber Rudd today, who was herself a sixty six to one player he'll go up. I think when they published the next odds, it'll be Johnson. Rob led some and hunt and it may be Johnson hunt, because the people don't really want to leave. The people who are really remains at heart who think this is stupid, and I don't think it's too, but I'm for them people vote. You gotta do it people vote, they're all going to rally around someone. The idea is get to the final round. Dominic Robb just wants to get to the final round because he thinks. That the remains will prefer him to Boris and the contest is underway, and it's going to be wrapped up by July the contest is underway and the betting is the market is open. Go back. And, you know if you're if it's legal, if you're in Great Britain, you can go bet. But I, I gotta tell you, I do not believe it makes sense to put a nother remainder in his prime and I'm very impressed with Jeremy hunt. So is the president. I just don't think it makes a lick of sense to nominate someone for job when they were opposed to Brexit. I really really don't the timetable, by the way. For the election. I was looking at the guardian new rule one hundred sixty thousand conservative members and they will ballot. They will be casting their ballots, the week beginning July the twenty second. So we are a good eight weeks away. And I'll bring you up dates on this. But you can get familiar with the names Boris Johnson Jeremy hunt. Dominic Robb Andrea led. Some, those are the ones you need to know. Michael go with the cocaine problem not likely maybe should've taken relief factor instead of cocaine relief factor is what I've got on my studio desk. If you're watching on Univision you can also by watching townhall TV. And if you belong to the Hughniverse,.

UK's May quits as party leader

UK's May quits as party leader

"Today to resume steps down as leader of the conservative party. But she'll stay on as prime minister until a successor is chosen the contest to replace her begins, formerly on the tenth of June, the unofficial jostling for position has been ongoing for some time MP's will select a shortlist of two and then members of the party will choose which of them will be the next leader. Well, we'll find out how the technical side of that works in a moment with Terry STI estimate. But first, we have Matthew Perez on the line, the political journalist, broadcaster and former conservative party member of parliament must be thanks very much for joining us. This field of candidates has shrunk slightly, but it's still pretty unwieldy, and we may yet see more people throw their hat into the ring will this race be decided on how the candidates proposed to deal with Brexit. Yes. Definitely will you're right. They the field is incredibly large, but it is going to shrink and it'll shrink quite fast. I think starting starting in the next day or two on nominations close on Monday for for for for the race. And once omens of closed no one else can join, and anyone who hasn't got five percent. Well, anyone who actually anyone who hasn't got eight conservative MP, supporting them is out automatically, so they don't even enter the race so to speak. And then for the first round, you gotta get five percents of the second round ten percent. So the be the consequence of all that is that the field will very rapidly shrink down to three or four and we know pretty well who they're going to be. For all of them. The question will be Brexit. I mean Michael gov bars. Johnson who who the other couple that you think are serious contenders for this, then Jeremy hunt is serious contender Dominic Robb, who is the even more Brexit city than than Boris Johnson. So the Brexit side is, is, is Dominic Robb is most Brexit Boris Johnson is pretty Brexit. Joe Jeremy hunt is sort of in the middle. And Michael g-o-v is the only one to say that we don't necessarily have to leave on the thirty first of all, Tober, and that he would ask for an extension if we hadn't done a deal he'll says that he'd keep an ideal under the table. What does that mean? What he's trying to indicate. I think is is that he he wants? He wants if we if we can't get a deal we have to leave, but he doesn't want to go on about it, and it isn't what he wants to happen. And he really wants to get a deal it, it's all. Associates, strange language now with the conservatives and nobody does say that we, we weren't necessarily won't leave unless we, we get a deal. No one does say that any longer. They all say that. We're definitely going to leave. So it's only a matter of indicating just how enthusiastic they ought to get a deal or just how ready they are to leave without a deal. Well, Dominic Robb wants to prorogued parliament to force through a new deal exit. I mean this is being hailed as undemocratic. And this absolute horror that it would then involve the Queen in the row. Yes, he hasn't said he wants to, but he said he'd be prepared to. And it, it is a pretty appalling idea. You can just about justify Endre, unwritten constitution. If parliament has been paroled, which is to say it isn't sitting then, the executive, the government can do more or less what it likes. That's what our constitution says.

Tory leadership battle hots up, and all change at Change UK Politics Weekly podcast

"This is politics weekly. I'm Heather Stewart Naza time for us to believe in ourselves. What we can. And that's why I am standing to be leader of the conservative party Boris Johnson began his leadership campaign in earnest this week, telling him peas he was best placed to beat labor and put Nigel Farage back in his books. Meanwhile, leadership rivals queued up for an audience with Donald Trump as the US president blew into town for his photo opportunity with the Queen the contest kicks probably next week. So is it still for assist to lose this week? It's all change at change. You pay the six of eleven piece, depart, the flushing party. We talked to one of those sticking with it, Chris, Leslie. That's all in this week's politics weekly. And then there were eleven early casualties of the Tory leadership race this week were Kibble house, and James cleverly who withdrew as the party agreed new rules to weed out candidates with little chance of winning the six front runners with enough declared supporters are burst Johnson Dominic Robb, Jeremy hunt. Michael g-o-v such each of it. And Matt Hancock Johnson is current favorite to be anointed. His prime minister in the week of the twenty second of July, but a month is a long time in politics. Could we be looking at prime minister movement or dope, McVeigh by the summer while I'm joined to discuss all this by Katie balls from the spectator, and Ellie Mae o'hagan and Rafael bear from the guardian Katie was going to say you had a ringside seat at the hustings on Tuesday night, but you, you were the ringmaster hustings on Tuesday night, and we journalists most of journalists were outside in the corridor. Sad to say what, what was the mood like in there in the room managed to get a seat? So I was chairing the discussion and it was one one by one interviews. I think demeanor was fatty polite atmosphere. I think ahead of it, there was some talk that both could be heckled. And it was this is because it was the one nation caucus. So this is the group of conservative MP's headed up by Ambrosia NICKY, Morgan, now, I think there are lots of conservative MP's would describe themselves as one nation conservative term. Isn't it exactly? Specifically this group, they have the declaration of values which relate to things like having a United Kingdom the environment at free enterprise. I think what the best known for is don't like no deal, and they are opposed to nodule Brexit. So both Johnson describes himself as one conservative useless to saying that he went take canoe deal Brexit off the table. So there was some of you that this could be a real confrontation. But I think everyone listened to ever and had to say and before you an hour after gone splash on the front, free newspapers his comments, so love invasion did gap from the then of. Associates. Boris Johnson's pitch is was that he wasn't going to soften his new deal Brexit nine, but he did try and play up of the things that he would have in common with the MP's and the room. I think what's really benefiting Boris Johnson right now is someone called Dominic Robb because compared to Dominic Robb Bros. Johnson, seems less right? Win some of the MP's in the center of the Tory party on various issues, and that's making them think that if they have to have Brexit Hugh, is willing to countenance a deal Brexit. Bruce Johnson is a less bad option than someone like Dominic grump. I'm Michael go wrath last night. At the second round of these hostage not shared by Katie. We should say put himself in different position again. Didn't he said on what the idea of October thirty first? So he's the sort of even slightly more sensible Exeter's. Yeah. This has been Michael goes position for some time, which is essentially sort of the most as it was author, dogs, true believe of breaks. It's here up. To the point of accepting no deals. Because now for a number of reasons that he can't quite go that far and say, you know what? No deal is something we should do partly probably just because he is just a slightly more rigorous serious thinker than some of the people who prepared to go along with no deal. Chatting, I think he genuinely understands the hazard for the state for the economy. That would be involved in that I think, particularly the department that he was in, when he was environment. Secretary just introduced him to a lot of the practical problems that go along with doing no deal. And also, he has to recognize he's very tight cool politician, he recognizes that, you know, between. I think he's absolutely right. What she said about Dominic Robb based carving out this space football to be sort of as it were one row into simultaneous when you've got someone who's out in the oil, being completely bonkers and that's actually quite good position for Boris to be in. And so Michael really has to then pitch himself as insofar as a center of the conservative party unity. Can't that, that would be him. And I think broadly speaking, that is at least logically true. If you did a kind of a growth with a sort of X Y axis that sort of leave one end remain on the other tra- Thatcherite with slash and burn pros therapy on one, acts and one end sort of old skirts, though, wet invest spend money on stuff at the other end, and it sort of scatter plot on that axis of where all the parliamentary Tories are you'd probably find they've pretty much in the middle of that the problem is that being that Younes you can also means you alienate people on various fringes, but he, I think he's probably put himself in fairly tactically, g position and any took him out. Dominic mopping out out in the aisle. There last night's contribution from him was that he'd be willing to provoke parliament to suspend parliament, if necessary to get no Brexit, no deal Brexit food. That's pretty extraordinary, isn't it? Yes. Absolutely extraordinary. And I mean, this is a very cliche thing to save it. I, I wonder what the. Action would have been in if, if a labour MP had said that, I mean, I feel that people would have been saying it Stalinism is going to be tanks on the lawn of parliament square. You know, of course, perogie parliament is a crazy idea. And yeah, I think we should really reflect on what's going on in the conservative party. I think something really extrordinary is happening in that party. That is the case. Katie's ideas that would have seen credibly fringe now in mainstream discussion in the Tory polcy I would save on the parade and parliament comment. Dominic robb. He is that minority view of all the candidates, and actually, like a lot of people have reacted very badly to the idea. You're going to provide parliament, so I mean, it is something that you can't say they would do it in that room. It landed very badly and is interesting that in the hustings chat, every single Brexit he was saying, they would Constance emoji Brexit. So sad Javid. Andrea leads him and Boris Johnson explicit. Early route parading parliament. So I didn't think it is a majority view in the conservative party Andrew, let's inset that she consulted Klux at some point, and had wet this wasn't really viable option such Javid said that he's what parliament had to have a say. So, I think what you seeing is when it comes to Dominic Robb, what of the votes, he is going to try and make the final t now the European research group, that is a great gift, the eurosceptics of the policy that feel most strongly on having clean Brexit. Now, I think by having this dividing line between himself and Boris Johnson. I think it helps Boris jokes in many respects, I think Dominic Robb is trying to pick up this European research group votes to try and get further and free the rans, and he now has something to say, I am more serious about delivering no deal than my rivals less sanguine about the tool, even if it's only a tiny amount even if it's just only grow Francois talking about perogie Parman because Elliott this really is happening here is. Constant ratcheting of the parameters of was a normal discussion about what you should do in this country, further and further away from things that are practical. And so when you hit talk about a sort of global trade breaks or clean Brexit, or no deal Brexit. There's really no discussion of actually involves what practically that means. The reason Dominic Robb way, anyone would entertain parochial parliament is because there is this question of, could you actually persuade parliament, is that some potential parliamentary obstacle to delivering no do? And even the quite moderate will self stop motoric candidates in this race when they sable I wouldn't do not. We Michael go says, will we pretty have to get another extension their explanation is because parliament won't permit no do now? That's a pretty cowardly way of framing it. Because actually the reason not to do is because it's a terrible terrible idea. There's no such thing as a clean. Brexit, immediately often odeal your whole legal system, your economy in chaos your force back into in the Goshi action with the EU but for a much weaker position is properly bonkers. No one was seriously. Counseling in two thousand sixteen or twenty seventeen is only Lanzoni gender now and as the sort of the framing of the debate moves it just becomes a entirely normal thing to this Gus. And when half of the field of Tory candidates are prepared to discuss that quite normally that suggests a as was just said that the conservative parties in, that's a very peculiar place, ROY now when I'm part of that is because the backdrop of the discussion is what's going on impeachable this week where there's a by-election and Nigel. Farage is Brexit party looks as if it might do quite well, right. That's, that's what's in people's eyes were having this discussion. I think there is a sense that the Brexit party if you're going to the various frets to the Tory vote, the Brexit party frat is tina's at greater threat right now than the liberal Democrat vote now it's interesting. Lots of Tory candidates went to say, hey, we can actually win both voters back. I think never skepticism as how you unite voters who have said many times they want to know deal Brexit. They were only take that as being a Brexit that they would accept as fitting. Description, and how you those remained conservative OTC feel very isolated by the party and looking at the nipple Democrats. And I think he looked at the European election. Results teapot, is very well very clear Brexit positions. But completely opposing and that's a riddle I think every main party when it comes to working at had to get a big coalition of voters. I think on the Brexit polity point, there is a general sense, and I think you saw this in the hustings this week that such Javid stage loss of support. Actually, when he said the way to beat the Brexit party is by not being the Brexit party, and I think there are lots of Tory MP's you feel that you need to deliver Brexit. But you shouldn't be doing straight the noise Farraj playbook to do that anyway. Let's talk about Johnson was a briefing with a Tory poster Lord Haywood this week, who was saying he comes out with the most popular candidate. So he's the conduct people most not recognized like he also comes out the most unpopular candidate. He's an incredibly divisive, and polarizing figure isn't he would lay relish, the chance of taking on Boris Johnson to think gem, an election. I don't think that labor would relish taking on Boris Johnson though. I, I also think that we shouldn't underestimate Michael g-o-v is particularly fees. I mean I is total speculation on my part, but, particularly if he's still in contact with his old colleague, Dominic Cummings, then labor probably will be in trouble who, of course, helped run the vote leave campaigns by significant figure in the vote leave campaign.

"Politics, maybe undistracted, but there is so much that he's good about this country. So much to be proud of so much to be optimistic about.

Breaking down there at the end, Theresa May then returns into into number ten Downing Street where she will remain until a new conservative party leader is elected by the Tories, and that person will become the new prime minister that could take them up. Now, there are three people. I want to early flag for you as likely successors to the special relationship other half of the partnership Boris Johnson, former foreign secretary tweeted out, a very big dignified statement, from Theresa May. Thank you for your still ical service to our country and our conservative party. It is now time to follow her urging to come together and deliver Brexit Dominic Robb, formerly the Brexit minister who quit because Theresa May was not following through on Brexit, the right way, he tweeted dignified as ever trade, Somme showed her integrity. You're dedicated public, servant, patriot, and loyal conservative. And the current foreign secretary in Great Britain is Jeremy hot. He tweeted, I want to pay tribute to the pm today, delivering Brexit was always going to be a huge task. But once she met every day with courage and resolve. And ask the national health service who have an extra twenty billion. Thanks support. And she leaves the country safer and more secure a true, public servant those are the three, I think, other real contenders to replace Theresa May boards Johnson, Dominic Robb. Jeremy, my friends who are steeped in English politics me. Dominic Robb is the better candidate for the general election, which will arrive sooner rather than later. But whoever delivers Brexit whoever's the next prime minister gets the chance to get them out of the which is affirmed up growing disgust with the European Union. They have been trying to cripple the UK throughout this entire process that bureaucrats Brussels, with done is destroyed. Theresa May political career, it opened the door and the only person who can walk or the conservative party is going to insist on someone who will go hard Brexit, if they won't open the deal, fine, we're done, and there's really no way to stop that from happening. If you're a labor or a liberal, Democrat, and once that is done, I believe, the Tories will win a great victory at the polls, because the people will have had their wishes respected.

"That's another extension can be agreed. Now lost time that this prospect was looming MP's in parliament voted that the UK should not leave without a deal and Theresa May agreed to that. But there's no reason why a future lead. It would have to be bound by that say the default would be that we would leave with. Out a deal. And certainly, if you had an arch brick ten light Boris don't Mike Dominic Robb, another former Brexit secretary who has already made it clear that he's happy to leave without a deal that prospect, does now much much more likely. And they're all ready senior ministers, who are arguing in cabinet. They should be getting on with it. Now when you be making the preparations where no deal Brexit, the gang onto WTO terms, and then negotiating trade arrangements with the EU from outside, which is what people voted for any three years ago now new three years ago heavens about CARA walk. Thank you very much time saving. You're listening to the daily from monocle twenty four. Now from Britain's parliament to Spain's whether it was a somewhat unusual. Cited the opening of the newly elected parliament five elected Catalan separatists with there's nothing particularly remarkable about that you might think even the last few years, but they run a very, very short term release from prison. In order to be there. They were out long enough to be sworn in and then sent back to jail. Well, let's get more now for make Bernhardt his freelance journalist based in Barcelona. Make these these Catalan politicians had a police accompaniment. How do they end up being temporarily released in this way? So that the five Catalan separatists including the former regional vice presidents Royal don't get us. Were basically two years ago almost two years ago in twenty seventeen put into preventative custody for having organized, the kettle on independence, referendum back in twenty seventeen. And during the April twenty eighth elections they ran for several parliamentary positions. And in fact, were were elected and Spain's constitutional or Spain's courts ruled that they would be allowed to be released as you say temporarily from jail to accept their posts yet. They had to return back to jail as, as the trial of, of the debt independence. Referendum is ongoing. So it was just briefly in. It's unclear whether or not even be able to exercise power within those roles in the next several months, we'll call them to be excluded from parliament. Yes. Yes. From the conservatives in parliament, the. Partido Popular the Popular Party who is previously in power last year before Mariana Hoy was ousted in confidence vote. Also, this you that knows citizens party. And of course, the far right vox party all three of them are calling for those separatists to not be allowed in parliament saying it's unconstitutional, saying it's an embarrassment to Spanish democracy that they were even allowed to partake in this wearing in ceremony today. If they're going to stay in jail, who's going to represent the constituents. So that also is, is unclear basically a they have a choice where they could voluntarily renounce their position in provide or give those seats to other individuals in their parties, which include two different separatist parties, who put together for Catalonia and the Republican lefts so they could give their seats to others who are not in jail, and then who could therefore vote in their in their place, or they could. Maintain their position. But the likelihood is that the Spanish parliament, their governing bodies, the, the two houses governing bodies are going to vote that they're not allowed to have their positions. So they could be suspended from parliament, and it would be easier for Beth resentatives, who doesn't have a majority government right now. It would be easier for him to make his government because he wouldn't need to court their votes. They would essentially get knocked out of voting for bedroo- sunsets and the new Spanish government. So it's unclear but likely though, either be suspended and not even included in parliament's, or they'll give their seats up to other individuals in their parties..

Why the Irish border is a major sticking point in Brexit negotiations

"The five hundred thirty five page draft agreement between Britain in the EU was finally revealed this week, and oh boy did nobody like it. I mean, nobody likes the guy who negotiated. Dominic Robb, the Brexit secretary. It was his agreement and then he woke up in the morning and decided to even he didn't like it and had to resign in protest against by the way that you can't take that is just so wrong. I saw many people in the UK like making fun of this guy. You can't negotiate a thing. And be like, you know, what that was bad and just walk away. Well, it just shows that about he's no that'd be that is just bizarre. But it's like, how do you spend this many months negotiating this all of this time? And then not really have a sense of how this is gonna play. Once you release it to the public, just tear. It just shows you the quality of leadership over there's bad. I mean, there's no doubt that the quality of the UK his his. Well, I mean, I'm not gonna say it's never been low because it was actually though when they Cameron this. But yeah, it it's a disaster. It is a shit show. It is as bad as you can imagine. Because let's back up a little bit in described this deal. Basically, it's an ultra ultra soft. Brexit is what it really is the Britain, effectively winds up staying in the customs union in the free trade area, at least through the end of twenty twenty and probably even beyond then because they never going to work out a deal to deal with island. And they still wind up being governed by European Louis, basically, all of the independence that everyone who voted for Brexit was promised. Doesn't appear. We should explain the the Ireland because I don't think they actually talked about it and the Brexit episode, and that seems to be the real sticking sticking. Okay. So yeah. The to make it really simple. The entire island. Peace process is based upon this idea that you can just walk back and forth between the border is effectively an invisible border between North Island Republican violent and people live on one side and work on the other. And you know, they live on one side and go shopping on the other, and they provide goods and services to the other. And it's and that's how the. Irish problem was solved basically that you know, that people were like well, so long as the board that doesn't really feel like a boy that we're not going to be too. You know, terroristic about like trying to reunite the island. And so this is incredibly important for history for peace and prosperity on the island of Ireland and everyone agrees on both sides that this has to remain the soft invisible that you can't just put you trade barriers. The problem is of course, that if you have lots of back and forth between North Island Republic of island. Then. That means you have no trade barriers between the UK and the EU. In the u. Because I learned is in the in the UK. And so then what do you do? Then what you have to do is if you have free trade between the Republic violent in Northern Ireland. Then if you have trade barriers between Great Britain and the European Union that you wind up having to trade barrier in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This is completely unacceptable to basically not only everyone in Northern Ireland. But also, fetch the everyone in the toy party in pretty much everyone in the labor party as well. Because they'll let you call them put trade barriers up within your own country. So this is an insoluble problem. And according to the way that this Brexit's agreement is drafted until you solve this insoluble problem. Britain and the United Kingdom, essentially, we wind up remaining under EU law and having to effectively be part of the EU with a not a not being able to, you know, make their own free trade agreement so anything with zero say because they actually members of the let just governed by without being members..

Amazon UK boss Doug Gurr warns Brexit could spark 'civil unrest'

"The institute for war and peace reporting and George Brock journalist and visiting professor at City University, welcome both of you to the program. Let's begin in Britain where Doug girl the UK boss of online retail giant. Amazon has made atypically soothing and measured contribution to the debate around Brexit. Mr. has warned that Britain could face civil unrest within weeks. If it leaves the EU without a deal, he made the remarks during a meeting between Briggs secretary Dominic Robb and a group of senior business executives on Friday. George to begin with brings up the speed. What is the likelihood of a no deal Brexit at this stage? And what could it look like? The likelihood is much higher than it was, let's say a month ago because the government attempted to get a position together, what's known as the checkers meeting will the check his deal. And that has already. In fact, Fulham apart. None of that was the fact that MRs may never had a consistent parliamentary majority any strategies she was trying to get through. She can win tactical victories here and there and does, but what she needs in order to avoid a hard Brexit is a whole series of parliamentary votes between now and approximately January, and I can't see anymore sign now than the day. After the election, she's the, she's got those numbers. So therefore with falling apart of the latest deal, she's tried to stitch together you if you are a business operating across borders, any kind Amazon or anyone else you have to say that the percentage Johnson a hard Brexit has gone up. I think it's some are. I would say it was about around fifty sixty percent. My personal guess then yet you can kill with that. I think it's stalemate is perilous in itself. People are now talking about the idea that we can get this grace period extended, which also seem. Unlikely, I kind of relish the these cut of apocalyptic warnings. It's already in such a dire situation and considering how this country does when it's to halt or too cold on the virtual scenes of panic. I imagine what things will be like when we have actual supply lines of ordinary everyday goods interrupted. It's not helped of course, by the fact that the government has to do these risk assessments industry of the worst case scenarios in the same way, that's people are always sending information requested Lakewood councils that preparedness ambi- apocalypse. Similarly. Similar preparations, ah, taking place which ranks the atmosphere even more, but having come thus far, I think, well, my my personal project fare wasn't fifth enough. We might as well go full apocalypse and see what happens. So you seem to approve of the statement from kind of aesthetic viewpoints. I like to imagine the civil unrest and also from a kind of strategic viewpoint, which is that if this can prevent a hard Brexit, then you know, that's a good thing. But do you think that is it's plausible. I'm trying to get kind of idea of like what a no deal Brexit wouldn't actually look on the ground will we see ravaging hordes straight meets street. I, I think the British people, the forty polite for that, but I think we are really losing our mind on this whole issue. And the fact is we're so distracted by Brexit and all permutations that we're not really doing anything about anything else. So, well, the veneer of civilization can often be very, very thin. But I, I, I appreciate the captains of industry saying this is going to be awful and much worse than you margin George Hubbard. Would it be? I think that civil unrest at any scale is at the outer edge of possibilities. I think you'll much more likely to get vast traffic jams goods shortages jobs, eventually being lost because supply lines don't work. People being laid off those at the those are the much more prosaic, possibilities that are that are far more likely and these business people. After all, I, I would say if anything, they have been very reticent and very late in making these warnings. They have been thinking about all of these things from two years now, and I would have preferred if they've been running fair little bit earlier.
