Why a New Abortion Ban in Poland is Causing a Furor
"Today in Poland where for five straight days. Now, streets across the country have been filled with protesters as we mark the swearing in of new Supreme Court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and wonder how the court will now see Roe v Wade Poland is an interesting case protesters. There are angry precisely because of a high court ruling on. Abortion last week, Poland's constitutional tribunal outlawed the practice in all but the most exceptional of circumstances as the world's Europe correspondent Orla Barry reports. The latest legal decision is now being widely condemned by women's rights, groups, Justin of it. The refs as a founding member of the abortion dream, team they're a well-known group of activists who says out in two thousand sixteen to de stigmatize abortion in Poland the dress had an abortion in. Two thousand six and even though she worked with an abortion support group called almost no one about your own experience for more than twelve years up to two thousand, eighteen I was talking about this as anonymous person. I was not showing my face I was afraid about my community for threats says, she worried what our neighbors would thank her. There's nothing unusual about women keeping their abortion secret in Poland more than one thousand. Legal abortions for carried out in the country last year but women's groups reckon that the number of illegal abortions or those performed abroad is closer to two hundred thousand. No one knows the exact figure the court ruling last Thursday. Permits Abortion only in cases of rape incest and the mother's life is at risk activists say that just adds to the stigma and it helps explain why women have been out protesting every day since. In more. So last night protesters poured red paint across the city's main bridge holding up signs that read you have blood on your hands, and this is war in the western city of Poznan demonstrators interrupted Sunday church services. Video posted online. A couple of dozen protesters are seen approaching the altar chanting we've had enough, but the refs ca says young people using such fury at the church is something new for Poland. There are very young women who are protesting chorus creaming on the on the priests in small towns. And like really today jurors, it is something which hasn't been seen on the streets before this is something new. What we see ninety percent of Poles identifies Catholic, and since coming to power in two thousand fifteen, the ruling law and Justice Party has promoted what it calls traditional Catholic values but recent surveys show the majority of Poles did not support more restrictive abortion laws. Activists say the new measures are a threat to women's rights in Poland Hillary Margolis is a senior. Researcher. With human rights, Watch under the Lawn Justice Party, we've seen repeated attempts to completely ban abortion also to obstruct sexuality education schools to really smear and undermine women's rights, groups and activists including those who work on violence against women and Margolis says, it's not just women's rights conservative politicians have in their sides the way they've used the concept of the so called traditional family to undermine women's rights but also lgbt rapes is very worry but in some ways has seen. Some success you they've managed to get people afraid and that is I think part of how they have kept power. But protesters say they will not be deterred several university faculties canceling classes tomorrow and some companies have announced a day off. So workers can protest Anthony in eleven. Scott is a sexual and reproductive health and rights activists based on more. So she says is not just young women who are taking to the streets taxi drivers joined yesterday form as join and. Some smaller towns and of the groups that has already joined the protest were actually the police officers that goes ing one of the provinces they just took their helmets off and they entered the crowd in order to participate. But not all police officers support the demonstrators that have been street clashes in Warsaw and Levin of SCO worries things might get more violent yesterday. The prime minister gave permission for the Military Police to join the police in the streets and they only do. You really believe that there is a huge risk of riots and the public turning islands. The Polish government has been accused of appointing judges loyal to the ruling party activists are hopeful that an international body like the European. Court of Human Rights could challenge the recent decision on abortion on that basis. In the meantime campaigners say they're worried about their future in Poland I asked just thrift Ska from the abortion dream, team if she's concerned about being targeted by authorities of cars every. Day that we are expecting them. So if there will be some kind of idea to close us, we will move abroad and we'll be still working will not stop for the rest says no matter what the government does women will continue to have abortions in Poland, and groups like hers will keep fighting for the right to do. So for the world I'm Morna Barry.
Polish women protest new abortion restrictions
"And cities across Poland. Against the Constitutional Court ruling the band's almost all abortions, with exceptions only for cases of rape, incest or where the mother's health is at risk of the ruling outlawed abortion, even in the event of fetal defects. Which accounted for 98% of all illegal abortions carried out in Poland last year. Martin Lynn, partisan activist with Polish women's strike and has been organizing the protests. Where does Thie Court ruling leave women in Poland? What we're facing now are two ways of action. One is the doctors who actually already contacted us is organization that supports fight for abortion and declared that they will not actually comply with Mrs Trump's Gus announcement because they don't consider this a cart rolling. All of them are even prepared to go all the way with the criminal charges, if needed, because the state's obviously will try to impose this announcement is a court's ruling, and also there is a team over our lawyers that is tasked with preparing individual cases, but also general cases. To European Commission to European institutions, all kinds, of course, that we can rely on national and international. So now we go for the legal grounds. You go for the judiciary system to help us. We promote initiatives that provide abortions that support women who want to have an abortion. Either abroad or here in Poland, because we're talking about something that will be happening anyway. If the ban is there or not. The problem is that many women won't know that the fetus is damaged because now many of the doctor's just won't tell them during the tests because they will be afraid to be investigated if than some abortion happens or something happens earlier this week, we heard from a Polish government spokesman who Distance himself from this ruling, he said. It was a court ruling. But you are questioning the composition off the court that made this ruling. Am I right? I'm not the only person to question that. We are questioning it. Off course, the lawyers are questioning this. A European institutions that put a complaint finally. Against Poland in the European Court of Justice also questioned this. So we now have an example What happens if there is no independent judiciary is the rule of law is actually broken. We have in the living example off the decision. That is not a court ruling. And now we have to take all the forces to bring this to the light and to win this in court in the independent course. You're thinking about the legal and the medical challenges to this ruling. But where the protests going from here tomorrow we are protesting in churches outside of the churches. And we're telling the Catholic Church of Poland that is extremely happy with the bond that they think will be imposed in Poland that they are wrong with putting their own religion above women's rights. And on Monday we go carb locates and their old locates all over Poland, and on the Wednesday we strike because the police state is not working properly anymore with the panda. Mia was declared the economy crisis of and with the human rights crisis, so we might as well stop Poland for good until someone comes to them their senses. Got a
Boris Johnson will delay decision on quitting Brexit trade talks
"The brexit transition period is due to expire on the thirty first of December at which point the UK will leave the single market without a deal unless an agreement with the EU is reached in the next few weeks British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he wanted the broad outlines of the deal to be in place by the time the European Council Summit begins, today. The McCaffrey is your news political editor. He joins me on the line from Brussels could money cheat today it's the deadline. So why aren't we walking away? In this process is brexit process. We're very very used to deadlines coming and going out we gene and two large degree. At today he's GonNa come and go again and what we're expecting is no deal at the end of today when. Leaders meet in Brussels who were also not expecting Britain at top walk away either in fact we're expecting. Probably weeks of negotiations. Why is that I? Think because progress has been made though it is interesting last night the Boris Johnson spoke to US London line the EU Commission, Presidents and chose Michelle the EU council president in a joint to call and he. Exposure of his disappointment that the had not being a substantial or not progress. But clearly think that there is still an opportunity to get a deal. Hence why these talks will continue. We have to remember at the end of all of this book Britain and the e You have repeatedly said, they do wolves future trade deal I. Think both of them are willing to give it another shot of you like a bit more time So what are the underlying issues that holding up this process? Will listen to you though kind of three key areas in all of this at first of all is the so-called level playing fields or state AIDS, which is essentially the e you wanting you to adhere to the same rules and regulations to a large degree that and they already do as a former member of the European Union and things like environmental protections, food standards, for example, so that Britain can't undercut those in a more competitive way and join to that is this issue of state AIDS. The idea that the state can subsidize heavily industries to keep them afloat if you like, and again the EU is king the Britain essentially really can do that because it could convey. Could gain a competitive edge. Undercut the E. U., two degree now Britain would point out and rightly so some would say that actually if there is any part of the two sides who are used to subsidizing their industries, it's more likely to be countries like France and Italy than it needs to be the UK or indeed Germany for example, who just failed out Lufthansa to the tune of ten billion euros I mean the UK hasn't yet bailed out any of Big Airlines then disease you have governance How to settle speech future future disputes in essence the EU, has conceded that it's no longer going to be the European Court of Justice and they're trying to work out to kind of independent tradition if you like. And then finally, there's this kind of issue of fishing which economically is not important either to the EU or the UK in the sense it doesn't really make much of any countries economies to large degree, but it is politically symbolic. Ephraim. Brexit. As it will is what Brexit was all of out retaining sheesh water and also some European countries. It's incredibly symbolic importance at French fishermen, for example, or at pretty significant force in France and Emmanuel macron is staring down election in the not too distant future. So that is an issue. That actually is always the most difficult of issues because as as a Britain wants to gain back control of its waters, the EU still wants to be allowed to fish in those waters and it suggesting that if it cannot will. Then Britain is not going to be able to sell its fish to the rest of Europe and that is by far the largest markets. So shortly, collapse the whole deal on fishing. Think not though there are genuine concerns that it could be at the key issue. In the trade talks over the next couple of weeks, not least of all, because as become this to the issue in from both sides that for Britain. It's very symbolic as I say what Brexit is, they are absolutely determined. That they can have you know European fishermen essentially in the seas for years and years to come. Katrina to the fish they just think that is fundamentally unacceptable. It is not in essence taking back control. For the EU are equally determined. That if Britain wants to gain access to it single market by selling fish and eighty I, think it's eighty percent of British Fisher exploited in sixty percents. In, total those to the rest of the EU then. You're. Not, GONNA be able to sell your fish and you can have all your efficient chips he wants, but they'll have to be British people are going to eat them and not the EU, and they would also point that actually half of the so-called Bush's boats that fish in fresh waters at the moment are actually forward. So in practical terms, would it make that much difference I think the compromise, the them at may well come, and with this idea of quotas every year that potentially will start where we all now and year after year decrease. On a negotiated faces a bit like Norway has dumb but for Emmanuel macron fishing is a key key factor in all of this. Simply because you know French, fishermen are a potent political force but for the countries like Germany. In essence fishing's not very important and they would be very, very disappointed when push on for the deal to collapse on that single issue. So I mean what happens next and is a no deal Nella a probability rather than A. So. When you talk to people here and is being a whole range of MVP's and official yesterday, they were putting it at a probability of sixty percents. Gene essentially, that will be no deal, which is point stalk in many ways given the fact that we are getting into the game and we really all because time is to Michelle Volley ticking in this process I think what will happen next though is that they will conclude. Leaders at tomorrow that enough progress has been made and the talk should continue. I expect the British will accept that and talks will continue for the next couple of weeks. up until. Either the end of this month or the start of next. But then a deal is going to have to be done or essentially both sides have to accept the will be no deal because ultimately if there is to be a deal, it is a massive. Weighty Hefty document that has to be translated into all the official languages of the EU. EU Paul, we'll have to vote on the British parliament, some national parliaments to and so that decision will have to be pretty soon at the start of the next month because ultimately, they'll only have up until the end of to send the. It's because Boris Johnson his always all. And that he will not extend beyond December thirty. First, we've heard of course that before I think this time that really is a hard deadline and so at the Mo- wind, you'd have to conclude or less things substantially change that you know no deal. Is a real. Possibility, but probability, how is the British parliament reacting to this brinkmanship? Well, there's this. Thing is when we kind of what? It's not weird actually, it's probably not surprising the tool. But, it's not really consuming European on British national politics. At the moment clearly, we're in the middle of a pandemic. Clearly everyone's focusing on not just the fact that there is a second surge affecting almost every corner of Europe and deed every corner of the British isles. And Other increasing restrictions, talks about lockdown. So not not anyone's really talking about Brexit I think. Boris. Johnson's going to take enough majority that no deal is not good to trouble him like it. It was last year when there was a possibility that the government collapse on the issue I don't think that's GonNa happen this time round for the genuine concerns in Britain about what this will mean. Already, the government is already having to spend millions and millions of pounds to get a border posts. Customs checks to employ people essentially to work on that border from the first of January and no matter what the trade will be there will be extra checks a respectable. What happens

EU court cancels US data-sharing pact over snooping concerns
"A big agreement covering the transfer of European Union citizens data to the United States struck down by a European court privacy watchdogs were celebrating this morning. We're joined live on the CBS Bring Central News Line by Vincent Man in court. Reporter at Politico Europe who focuses on a tech and data protection and he joins us live from Brussels. Vincent Thanks. Can you sketch out for us? What this ruling will mean in the short term and potentially in the long term? Hi. Thanks for having me on. I mean, firstly, it is really hard, Tio every state the impact of this ruling. It's the second time that they used top call has struck down a data transfer agreement between You in the U. S. And this is an agreement used by thousands of companies to shuttle data from Europe to the U. S. And includes companies like Facebook Like Google, You know, the big Silicon Valley Giants. So it's really you know, back to the drawing board for negotiators on both sides of the Atlantic on a time where you know, tensions are really already running quite high between Brussels and Washington. Um So the second thing to know really, is that a zealous this agreement being stuck down another legal instrument used by many companies and many Silicon Valley companies. Transfer data out of Europe has bean upheld by the court, but There is now a lot of pressure on days protection watchdogs in Europe to strike down those transfers to places where surveillance regime regime deemed too intrusive for European standards, so that would include the USO show a lot of a lot of trade. A lot of data transfers have bean dumped into legal limbo by today's ruling. So potentially, this could require American companies that want to do business in Europe, with data to physically put data centers and keep those bits of data from moving back into the U. S. Yes. So that one. I mean the moment we need to let the dust settle on this ruling, But in the coming days, it will become a lot clearer what the next stages are in this process. Early indications from both sides from Washington from you officials is that they want to come to some kind of compromise to keep the flowing across the Atlantic. Just because You know, it's the lifeblood off the digital economy and very important for both sides. In the short term, it will create a lot of legal headaches for these companies. I believe that somewhere in this whole privacy shield presses, there was an ombudsman's rolls set up in other words watchdog who was supposed to keep an eye on whether the transfer of data was in fact creating privacy issues that wasn't strong enough, apparently for the court. No suits, So the outcome from this court is that we've had we've had to re negotiations of this agreement. The first agreement safe Harbor was struck down now we have privacy shield, which has struck down On. Really The conclusion from this Is that the tinkering that went on after the first annulment? Just more than enough? You know, the increased safeguards weren't enough to be The implementation of often ombudsman wasn't enough. It's this I think for a deal, Teo Teo get off the table at this point will require some riel soul searching on the part of US legislators and and, you know, an overhaul, perhaps of the surveillance surveillance regime. We thank you for the time this morning. That is the latest on this ruling out of Europe today by by the European goes

Serbia-Kosovo talks 'back on track
"Now Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's statehood since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in two thousand and eight, nearly a decade after a very bloody war dialogue between Belgrade and Prishtina began in two thousand eleven, producing some thirty agreements most of them, though a not observed, but after talks broke down a couple of years ago, the parties are communicating again with both the EU and the US weighing in well for more I'm joined by James, Kara Lindsay who's visiting professor at the NFC and author of the politics of recognition and engagement, e you, member-state relations with Kosovo James Let's begin with the US involvement. Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this? It looks like he's going to be very involved in trump's reelection campaign, and as we know it less than four months to go before the US election. I, think the latest sellings way hand over to Europe is saying look I've. Got To be dealing with now, so the ball is very very certainly back in the European court now and there was a video summit on Friday chaired by the the the Cherry double-act Merckel macron. What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.

Where Do I Start?
"Why do I stopped announced New Day? Welcome to the sustainable futures report for Friday. The twentieth of March against that saying that the big issue is still covered. Nineteen the corona virus. The International Energy Agency the expects the economic fallout to wipe out the world's oil demand growth for the year ahead which should cap the fossil fuel emissions that contribute to the climate crisis but Fawzi Barrel I e as executive director as worn. The outbreak could spell a slowdown in the world's clean energy transition unless governments use green investments to help support economic growth through the global slowdown. There was nothing to celebrate in a likely decline in emissions of my economic crisis because in the absence of the right policies and structural measures. This decline will not be sustainable. He said I'm no expert. All I know is this will govern everything we do for the next weeks months and probably years. The situation is changing by the day. If not by the hour so I'm not going to comment further except to say that I think we will gain valuable lessons. Which will inform our approach to the climate emergency? I'm working on a new presentation on that theme to be Thailand for the individual clients and presented as a live interactive video. The working title is lessons from covered. Nineteen staying in business staying in Prophet and staying. I'll let you know in the trailer is ready. And they will be special tells of patrons who want to use it in that an organization's for the day I'm falling back on cliches. Okay cliches. But the fact that they've survived suggests there might be some truth in them first of all always look on the bright side. There is a bright side. All over the moment dockside is seriously predominant. It'll gradually get brighter because we can be competent that this too will pass but the climate will still be an issue as always the question with the sustainable futures report is where do I saw with so much information. Coming in all quarters. It's difficult to know how to prioritize what to do or to say start with the end in mind is a well known piece of advice. My Aunt my objective is to make people aware of the seriousness of the climate situation. So that we can all urge governments and leaders to take the international action which is the only way to conquer the climate crisis. The same time I bring you. News work being done to meet the challenge on. I also attempt to look at areas where I'm much more action is needed this time. Then the topics. I'm covering into good news and positive climate messages from the mining industry from the EU from the UK's Financial Conduct Authority. Maybe even from Boris Johnson. There's good news to about geothermal energy cutting pollution is a possible end to the throwaway culture list of bodies is even longer commutes committed to their cause. Why trees not the answer threats to sue. The government continued use of fossil fuels. Accelerating ice melt on why wearing clothes can be bad for the environment. Let's start with the bad news. So you've got something to Fullerton. Kaas off a major source of pollution both in terms of emissions of greenhouse gases and all particulars which reduce quality in the UK alone bad air quality causes some fifty thousand premature deaths each year. It's disappointing to learn from a report by the European Court of Auditors that Europeans are reluctant to give up the private. They say Ovo cities are put in place range of initiatives to expand the quality and quantity of transport. There has been no significant reduction in private car usage. This is unsurprising. Given that they found that in many cases it was always quicker to get to the city centre. Calm in the immediate to him. It is going to be even more difficult to persuade people to use public transport while there is a risk of infection in crowded spaces much better to stay locked away in one's own private vehicle. People probably prefer that even if it takes longer to complete the journey through the European structural and investment fund the EU has provided sixteen point three billion euro between two thousand fourteen and twenty twenty to change the way people move in cities but the auditions complained that the money was taken but there was limited. Take up on European Commission guns on how to spend it. Money was being wasted on infected projects.

Even in most countries, it's pretty basic thing. The funny thing is like if you have any doubts about what happened here, I really do recommend watching the documentary, it should remove all those doubts. This was one of those stories we've talked about this a lot about people make impression that they make on the first layer or the first wave of stories about something. And then you have to dynamite them out of that impression, which means you should be pretty careful first time through, and I think early on when she was arrested people locked down like, wow, she's leaving this kind of sorted lifestyle in Italy.

There are there are risks with that option, and they are very where of that. Which is why they haven't come out in full support of it. Okay. Let's stay with the with the idea of options because one other option that was mooted many many. Two months ago. But which now appears beginning traction is this idea of a people's vote projected as the only viable alternative to avoiding a hard Brexit with all of its potential negative consequences. Do you do either of you feel that that ruling by the European Court of Justice is that actually made that idea of the people's vote more viable and could MRs may be forced to accept it? Even though she said, no that really does cross legendary red lines. There's many legendary red lines of MRs may that she's turned to my like she was saying up until a few hours ago.

There is no certainty whatsoever about a second referendum giving a VO different decision than the one. We already have which of course, you know, puts the fear of God into into everyone every every politician on the other hand, very soulful these political tactic, which I might not agree with.

But Oscar why wasn't that enough and is he likely to make other concessions in this nationwide address? What can we expect from him? If anything at all, well brawler music politicians keep.

New this morning across the pond, a top European legal adviser tells the European Court of Justice the UK should be able to unilaterally cancel its withdrawal. From the EU spoke about this earlier with correspondent bills Infor Theresa May, of course, has a week left before parliament votes on her Brexit plan, and what happens then could dictate not only the direction of Great Britain. But also the political future for Theresa May now. Here's what's happening today. The advocate general of the European Court of Justice has has ruled that the British government can unilaterally halt the breakfast process. That means they by themselves can just say, that's it. We're going to stop this whole thing. The UK had argued that article fifty notification which is the notification to get out of the European Union could only be withdrawn with the agreement of all twenty-seven remaining, you members. So what this does is gives British parliament another bit of ammunition. If they wish to challenge Theresa May on this Brexit move saying that Britain by itself could decide to end the whole process and stop it right there. So this just adds a whole nother angle to this whole confusing situation that is going on in Great Britain right now, Theresa May is is scheduled to deliver a speech today that would again, promote her Brexit plan that will be voted on by parliament in one week. But if you wanted something else. There is more on this lawmakers are also debating today, whether she or her ministers should be held in contempt for ignoring a boat to publish the legal advice on the Brexit deal. If you thought what's going on in the United States is a little bit complicated. Look at Great Britain. You've got some things going on there as well.

I think to say that there is one rule that should see to everyone. But as what it does indicate is that because of work communication because communications are always there. We have the Munoz's smartphones. We have worked phones the delineation between your home life and work life is becoming increasingly blurred. And I imagine that work has a lot to do with that. I think that's true. I think as I said, we access work stuff home. We can't help ourselves equally. We we're looking at what's happening Grammont works in our minds that distinction becomes blurred. And we probably don't switch off as as we would have done in the old days where we left work. And there was no possibility to connect with the office except for the phone call. What's happened? Then is really that people's right to privacy in the home from work has really been diminished. I think it's a very difficult question because there is a right to privacy. But it's not an absolute, right? Say. It's all about balance seven employees one side of the scales has the right to privacy, which encompasses a right social interaction. So the right correspondence the right to form social relationships. Whether that's at work or at home. Lord isn't really look at this river geographical location when the correspondence sent. So what you send on social major? What you send in a workplace system. It can still be personally it could still be private but equally on the other side of the balance if you like all the employer's rights to protect the business to protect that reputation. An it's about balancing, those two conflicting often competing sets of rights, and that the law has to testifying that that balance have you had any cases where you sort of worked in that gray area where that trying to find that balance. I think it comes up all the time because as you say they blurring between high. There are plenty of cases in courts, say one of the most recent leading cases, if you like case before the European Court of human rights in Strasbourg which involved a remained in employee who was using your who messenger for work, but used that system to send. Messages which were described as quite intimate to his brother and fiancee and the employer. Unusually I think from a UK context band or personal because it's very rare in the UK for employees to ban persuasive of work systems completely by that. You mean? Abused? Right. I think is this this blaring because people recognize you're at work a lot. So you do need to be able to access your private systems or your private communications from the workplace or vice versa. So anyway, this individual in his workplace that was a ban on personal use. He used the system to send personal messages, the employees transcribed them and ultimately dismissed him for his breach of the employer's workplace policies saying you couldn't use it passively, and he went right up to the European Court of human rights, and they looked at this question of what is a well established principle at your private correspondence can't be private even if it's in a workplace context, and then looked at this issue about whether a fair balance has been achieved and one of the key things about that cases. Individual hadn't clearly had advance warning that the employees could monitor his communications or could read the contents of them. And that's one of the key things about getting that balance. That's right. Well, yes, it's quite complicated. We're caveats it. Clearly, he did establish that he had some right to privacy. But it wasn't an absolute, right? Is everyone else that you should always assume that your boss, your employer can see anything you send onward emails or work communications? I think it'd be fair assumption. But it's back to this balance. I was talking about say you could have seen that an employer might look in certain circumstances, but the employer equally should tell you when it might look. So what a good sort of rules of thumb that an employee should stick to when they're using work communications.
