Tucker Carlson: Neocon Republicans' Response to Ron DeSantis
"Ron DeSantis answer, we didn't know what to expect. His is very straightforward. He said, and we're quoting without question peace should be the objective. Now, if you're a normal person, if you're not a neocon, who derives deep emotional pleasure from hurting people, that seems like a totally expected answer. Why wouldn't you want peace? All these people were being killed, including a bunch of kids. But the neocons were in raged by this. Here's a selection. Why does sadness is talking about something far worse? He's talking about trashing the international order. He's talking about dismissing a full skeleton invasion of a sovereign European nation as a border dispute. This is so reckless. Ron DeSantis basically said, you know, so what, Russia is in Ukraine. Let him alone. It doesn't affect us. I mean, the narrowness of that vision, the narrowness of his statements, it's more than upsetting. It's scary. The Tucker tail is wagging the dog. That's why. I mean, look at the forum through which he wanted to give this information from a host on Fox News who has been railing against the U.S. involvement in Ukraine. As a national security person from my perspective, it's actually horrifying to me that you have two potential frontrunners for the Republican nomination espousing pro Putin and standing against Ukraine. Isn't that so security person? No, you're a moron. And give us last three successes that your national security policy has born. Oh, none? Okay. What's interesting is how very much they care. This is actually what they care about. They claim to care about a lot of things what they really care about is foreign policy and conservative foreign policy. It's exactly why they hated Trump. They would have put up with anything, but when he criticized the Iraq War, he was done. Well, Tulsi Gabbard, kicked her out of the Democratic Party for it.

U.N. approves resolution calling for Russia to leave Ukraine
"The UN has approved a resolution calling for Russia to leave Ukraine. I'm Lisa dwyer. The UN General Assembly has passed a non binding resolution that calls for Russia to end hostilities and withdraw from its neighbor. The resolution which passed on a vote of 141 to 7 with 32 abstentions since a strong message that Russia's aggression must end during two days of debate, foreign ministers from more than a dozen European nations and Japan called for support for the resolution that upholds Ukraine's territorial integrity. The General Assembly has become the most important UN body dealing with Ukraine because the Security Council which is charged with maintaining international peace and security is paralyzed by Russia's veto power, unlike Security Council resolutions, its resolutions are not legally binding, but serve as a barometer of world opinion.

EU nations work on rift over gas price cap as cold sets in
"European Union and energy ministers have met at an emergency meeting on gas prices as winter approaches EU nations have not been able to agree on the question of gas prices, which are expected to skyrocket the soaring prices are a result of Russia's war in Ukraine with Moscow slashing gas supplies to all the European nations critical of Russia's actions. The meeting was focused on trying to break a deadlock between countries like Greece, Spain and France who want to cap on prices to ease household bills, and those like Germany and Netherlands that are insisting a price cap could cut supplies. Estonia's minister of economic affairs Leonard believes the price cap is necessary, but it is a tricky balance. I understand that we have kind of a long way and it is a real proposal on the table, but still the security of supply is paramount if the price is too high, we can compensate. We need to compensate. But we can not threaten the security of supply. I'm Karen Chammas

NATO 'Closely' Watching Baltic Sea Situation, Sabotage Suspected
"NATO official has told newsweek that the U.S. led western military alliance is carefully watching the Baltic Sea in the wake of suspicious incidents that targeted twin pipelines designed to bring gas from Russia to Germany. A NATO is monitoring the situation in the Baltic Sea closely. The NATO official said allies are looking into the gas leaks and exchanging information also with Finland and with Sweden as well. Sudden drops in pressure were first detected Monday by the operators of the Nord stream one and Nord stream two pipelines along with reports of leaks by the Danish energy agency and Swedish maritime authority. Both pipelines have been at the center of geopolitical geopolitical tensions surrounding Russia's war in Ukraine and neither were in operation at the time of the incidents, though they maintained gas under pressure within them. Late last month, Russia state run, Gazprom halted all supply through north stream one, which was completed in 2012, citing technical issues stemming from western wartime sanctions against Moscow, Nord stream two, which was completed last year, never entered into commercial operation as a result of the dispute over the conflicting Ukraine, the Danish defense command said Tuesday that prohibition zones quote unquote have been established around the site of three leagues that have been detected within the two pipelines and European nations have increasingly suspected that they were caused by foul play, Nord stream leaks and Danish military anyway.

Wallbuilders President Tim Barton Tells Us About John Witherspoon
"Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to Timothy Barton, president of wall builders dot com. You should check it out. Wall builders dot com. It is just a treasure of resources. But Tim, you're just giving us really important rare information. I've not heard most of this before, but you're talking about how the founders specifically John Witherspoon of New Jersey dealt with the issue of abortion. As you said, we tend to think of it as something fairly recent. Of course, it is no more recent than life or birth or death or recent. These are things that have existed since we have existed. So talk about Witherspoon because we cut you off in the last segment. Yeah, and let me actually add a little more context to John and Witherspoon, because John and Witherspoon as the president of Princeton, he personally trained more founding fathers than any other single individual and Princeton trained more founding fathers in any other university. So John Witherspoon had a direct influence on dozens and dozens and dozens of individuals that we would consider founding fathers. And this is important to know because he's imparting his philosophy into them and certainly you actually see a lot of his ideas coming out and things they did. But one of the lectures he gave while he was at Princeton dealt with the issue of parents over their children and specifically of the unborn child and parents. And one of the things he explained was, for example, this was in the era of the French Revolution, which the French revolutions, there were many of them, they lasted for a couple decades, but there was a lot of bloody deaths, a lot of conquering a lot of messiness in the French Revolution, but in the French Revolution, there was also a lot of secularization. We're under the French church. The French people had been oppressed and abused in many ways. And in America Christianity was very different than in many of these European nations because of the freedom that we gave and how in America Christianity was not the same level of coercive. It was over in Europe. And so John Witherspoon goes through and he explains that, for example, over in France, they're rejecting a lot of these basic biblical Christian notions. He says in France, they believe that parents own the children and actually he says really kind of Europe and the world, but he's specifically talking about France and then goes a little bigger, but what he says is there's people around the world that believe that they own their children. And they can sell them to somebody else's slave. They can sell them off to be indentured. They can give them in marriage, or if they don't want their children, they even can kill their children. And this is before they're born or at birth or even later, that parents are the property of the excuse me, children on the property of the parents. He then says, but in America, we believe it's very different. We believe there's a different role for parents and one of the things he explains is that in America we've denied the power of life and death over the child, we've denied that power to the parents, where the parents role is not to determine if the child lives or dies, but to raise them up and instruct them and nurture them and strengthen

China And the EU of course working on a plan to ban imports of Russian crude oil no agreement on that yet at EU leaders gathering in Brussels later on the south noon Goldman Sachs mimosas at the price of three key metals used in batteries cobalt lithium and nickel are set to drop over the next two years because they have been very very hot thus far Well let's get some more with Bloomberg's energy port at Steven Stassi Steven now some are saying that these red hot metals markets are going to slide over the next few years What seeing them come off these highs Well essentially they were just they were so hot that people invested too much in them What Goldman Sachs explains is despite demand looking quite strong for batteries which will be used in EVs and the energy transition The bull market is essentially over for now While the long-term prospect is strong investors exuberance has led to a short term oversupply So that's why they expect cobalt nickel lithium lithium is up 500% in the last few years to fall into next year Now looking farther out prices could soar again after 2024 this oversupply will ultimately probably dissipate in the next few years as we do see that demand rise They do expect there will be an outlook where EVs are adopted faster and these battery metals will be needed It's just not here right now So you have to be on the lookout for another price search maybe in the middle of the 2020s Okay so that interesting on the metal side of things what about the impact though on oil the situation in China is changing Yes so as was mentioned the Shanghai is allowing all manufacturers to reserve operations from June and then in Beijing the officials there say the coronavirus outbreak is under control China is a massive consumer of energy And their energy demand that lacking due to the COVID zero policy out of Beijing has resulted in quite a bearish environment for a while not for oil and natural gas and other commodities You saw Brent oil dip below a $100 briefly a few weeks back Do you in part to China's weaker demand But now we're trying to come back into the market There is some expectation that prices could go up Now it's not a 100% clear exactly how quickly demand will be rebounding but I think there is some more exuberance I suppose going forward as these curbs are eased in China could potentially be buying more fuel and metals over the next few weeks and months Now Steve most of the progress that we expect from the EU talks of course this agreement over banning Russian oil has been very tricky Hungry the key hold out there What are we expecting today Yeah I mean there was talks are going to continue I don't think we're expecting any deal exactly today but an EU official did speak to some of my colleagues in Europe And this

"Perspective here Because it seems like every day that goes past Ukraine gets more and more momentum Well he's already downscaled his aspirations Remember he started off his attack towards Kyiv with the intent of a lightning like blitzkrieg of armored forces and airborne forces to take turnover the government put in a puppet regime That was pretty bold And now because of the consistent failures that they've had they've had to down scope their aspirations So they're now pretty much focused on the area depth of separatists already had What's he going to do going forward More than likely he will continue to double down The last thing he wants to do on May 9th is stand up in front of his people and say I'm giving up So in typical Russian fashion he'll just keep pushing more and more troops into this cauldron and try to fight for a little bit of more territory which he may or may not get And hope that Europe will finally get tired of this and need gas more than they need Ukrainian independence So in general again from the Ukrainian perspective assuming that they continue to get increased military support from western nations other European nations what do you think their aspirations should be Should they be we're going to get Russia out of the whole of Ukraine or do you think they will negotiate for maybe something a little bit more modest Well certainly that's the aspiration not only to get Russia out but actually to extend sovereignty back into the Donbass region which is pretty much a wild west controlled by the separatists Logically though I think they will probably at best get back to where it was about a year ago where the Donbass continues to be an unsettled region And they have territorial control over the rest of Ukraine and it turns into what some would call a frozen conflict the kind of conflict we had in the Garner car block between Azerbaijan and Armenia for many years Between India and Pakistan and the cashmere It's just the frozen conflict that goes on for quite some time If you just joining a smart Kimmy with us for an extended conversation this morning off of U.S. intelligence discussions of the last 24 hours but of course of the war in Ukraine in general a general there's been so much talk in the interviews Paul Sweeney and I have done about World War three and what I find is international relations pros and military retired are heated that it is overwrought Should we analyze and expansion of the war Should that be part of the discussion Well first of all I agree with those retired generals that are talking about this being overwrought I mean this is the life we lived during the Cold War years Bob Gates at a recent dinner that I was at the former Secretary of Defense said we just got to realize that this holiday from history that we've had over the last 25 years has come to an end And we're getting back to that great power competition between Russia and the United States These days So this should be seen as the norm and not necessarily as something new Robert Gates is extraordinary folks I'm going to steal that first From secretary Gates holiday from history many have written about I believe it was 2008 in Belgrade and a meeting of EU NATO America I don't know the details in front of me sir I'm sorry Was secretary rice among others where maybe we made the decision to extend towards Russia That's not Mark kemet territory You're not one to naval gaze back and say shoulda could at what if When you hear people analyze the what ifs of the U.S..

"Reactive materials in the air But of course the Parisian where you have reactors in operation and they continue to work now is far more dangerous situation also because it was directly attacked I have to remind that this concern was in place back from 2014 when the war started in Ukraine and eastern Ukraine and was just a couple of hundred kilometers away And there was already then a discussion what if missile basically goes the wrong way and attack reactors themselves for the nucleus and storage facility and we will have a release But what happens is that actually we just had an attack when the site was shelled by Russian tanks And it was a very serious accident Because there are different scenarios of what can go wrong at the nuclear power plant and you don't necessarily need to be directly heating reactor for storage To cause problem because these are the systems where you constantly have to cool down the fuel and if you have an interruption of the three cities supply and cooling systems of operating you start getting into this accident of fuel melting Can you comment on despite the fact of the risks There are reports that European nations are embracing the possibility investing in more nuclear energy to be less reliant on gas and oil What would this mean And also what does it mean for Ukraine What message do you have for them Well indeed there are few of these discussions but I think that will be different voices on that For example in Europe with all the grass crisis nuclear is being considered as one of the answers And not so much about building new reactors because it's long and very expensive but also the results were an option to extend lifetime of existing reactors like in particular the Germany was looking into this options to not close reactors which the supposed to close And they come up with assessment that it will not make sense The risks associated with far bigger than benefits particularly for example in this story with natural gas the issues that gas is largely used for industry and for heating while that would not be simply compensated by electricity It's far more complicated Issue But I think it's interesting that now we have this demonstration of rather theoretical story It was always theoretical what happens if there is a military attack on nuclear And it was never properly considered It was always seen as something not very realistic But now everywhere it should be considered as kind of setting up a nuclear bomb of the kind let's say which can become attacked and have distraction It brings me back to the my school time when we have the big independence movement in late 80s in Ukraine still is a part of Soviet Union And I was handled this leaflets on streets of key of where there were map of Ukraine with the reactors being shown and the article basically was saying look Soviet Union Russia have planted this nuclear bonds on our territory And of course it was this posture noble moment where the whole continue nuclear movement was very much connected to independence But now we basically getting the proofs that it's very real It's very practical And that nuclear brings so many security issues that It doesn't force it I also would point out on the political leverage that rashes getting this nuclear technology we currently have in European Union a number of countries which operate Soviet design reactors and which are dependent on Russian fuel So it's similarly to gas We are constantly talking about this gas wars between Ukraine Russia Europe Russia it was happening for the last couple of decades When they would just cut on supply Well let me ask you something On that issue of Soviet reactors there are Russian reactors The U.S. and Europe are imposing a number of sanctions on Russian oil and gas Interestingly the U.S. is not imposing sanctions on Russian uranium which it imports Can you comment on this Do you think it should be included in the sanctions list Yes it's something that should be I think this war is very important as west don't want to direct intervention military should use this economic tools and this nuclear Russian company This is exactly one of the tools which was saying Russian is using this political tool internationally And it should be basically on the sanctions as well There are some of the steps which are happening for example in Germany there are some common joint companies which reviewing the agreement with Russia But most of the companies don't And I think this is also a moment which exposed how much different countries including U.S. are dependent on Russian nuclear industry So yes I definitely would say that all kind of sanctions on Russian energy supply and nuclei in particular should be implemented Unfortunately it's complicated I think it's a problem that we don't realize this scale for example For example what have happened in last week that despite there is a bank on the plane flying to Russia from Europe there was a special agreement to have one play coming from Russian to Slovakia to bring nuclear fuel So this is I mean that shows the scale of this kind of dependence and importance of And you have this incredible irony that of course president Valencia is really pushing hard for sanctions to be imposed By European countries and the U.S. and Russia oil and gas but you've got the pipelines of Russia going through Ukraine to Europe and Ukraine is not cutting those off I think 30% of the fuel that goes through there 30% of Europe's fuel that goes through there is through Ukraine Yeah but because it would be probably wrong politically for Ukraine now dictate Europe where they advise it or not it asks right so of course it's important to maintain their especially in the situation when the way out is really defeating Russia on the ground which Ukraine struggling to do And it brings us back to the situation in Paris The reality is that we can not guarantee nuclear safety in Ukraine unless the war is over And we have to remember that Russian army is still staying at the Paris power plant which is still operating And the issue is we don't know how it will be over because now it's a kind of a situation of for some kind of unclear stability when we don't know what is happening on the station but there is not active combat is happening But certain moment Russian troops will need to retreat

And look, I thank you for the call. I appreciate that. Yeah, actually throughout history, especially U.S. history. In our history is short. I mean, given compared to European nations, for instance. But I mean, the way that our country came to be in the first place was citizens showing up with their guns. Bringing their own guns, bringing their own ammo. It wasn't a matter of fact. The first fight, the way the Revolutionary War started was the British came to confiscate guns and ammunition. Gun confiscation really was how the United States of America came to be. Think about that. The United States of America started when a foreign power, in this case, England, the British soldiers came to confiscate the guns. And the people knew what would happen. If the British had a monopoly on firearms, the British had a monopoly on force, then they can do anything they want. And it's been that way throughout history. You don't have to strain very hard at this. To figure it all out, whether you're talking Pol Pot or Stalin or any other place, there's never been a place where there was a genocide where they didn't disarm the public first.

Thank you so much Hannah Now to another of our top guests this morning Simon Fraser previously served as permanent secretary of the foreign and Commonwealth office for the UK also the head of the British diplomatic service So essentially Britain's most senior diplomat he ran the global network of British embassies was also on the National Security Council he is now the cofounder and managing partner at Flint We had a discussion this morning at first off his assessment of the situation in Ukraine Well it is indeed a very dangerous moment It is basically the rewriting of the security system that we've known in Europe since the end of the Cold War By unilaterally by Vladimir Putin a dictator in Russia who is give topple the government install some sort of puppet government the interesting question after that is does he have further ambitions in terms of the occupation of the whole of the country Will he withdraw a little bit of what would the settlement be But either way the long-term issue is there can be no acceptance of this on the part of other countries in Europe and the United States So this is a structural standoff that he's establishing which is going to have very long-lasting consequences Okay what does that mean Does it mean arming the country's around Ukraine Surely there's no idea of an actual conflict between NATO and Russia Well first of all it means imposing and maintaining very strong sanctions as we've been discussing both economic political diplomatic and others Secondly it does mean looking at how you support Ukrainian opposition which will continue and the extent to which you can effectively do that And thirdly it does also mean looking very closely at the security of other countries in the region There's no reason necessarily to expect that Putin will stop with Ukraine What is his longer term ambition And in particular we are going to have to look at the deployment of forces in NATO members the Baltic states and others who are rightly very concerned about the implications of this for their future security So these are big long-term questions that the west collectively needs to address in a more effective way than we've been working together in recent years What impact will the sanctions have short and medium term Are they really enough Banks targeted yes but not the energy market for example not swift So there are still other measures that could be taken How would you describe the level of sanction now follow us I think the initial sanctions packages earlier this week were certainly the British one was under shop considerably but I do think in the last shot is quite generous I said undershot considerably but the point is in the last 24 hours I think the coordination has been better The packages are more impressive and effective but they're not going to stop Putin doing what he decided to do So what is the object of the objective is to impose a price on that a long-term price on Russia for the consequences of this action and to deter future action And I think you will see further ramping up of these measures over time as you say there are one or two headline things like swift which remain still to be discussed but overall significant progress has been made in the last day or so Okay even if there is effective goal coordination now for the UK in particular it's been decades that the UK has had very lax rules around investing in Britain has welcomed Russian oligarchs Has been London dubbed London grad we all know the quotes Nothing was done for years and now in the space of a week we've gone on to kind of war footing rhetoric at least by the prime minister I mean that's shocking Well I agree with you that people have been warning about this for some time I mean let's remember after the Cold War we hoped that Russia would integrate into the western system that there would be democracy would develop in Russia and the whole objective was one of bringing them.

countries I'm Hannah George this is Bloomberg Caroline Thank you so much Hannah for that news update We'll go live to Brussels to speak to our Bloomberg reporter on the ground in just a moment to understand the sanctions from Europe and the mood there too but firstly on the UK's sanction package I want to bring in Bloomberg reporter Lizzie burden Good morning we saw a very somber prime minister yesterday announced the package to parliamentarians he even got the kind of full throated support of the labor leader Keir Starmer Is this new set of sanctions though really tough enough Well it definitely tougher Caroline The master of sanctions on Russia was criticized as meaningless not just by the opposition maybe possible but also by some of Boris Johnson's own MPs for the executive So this new package is said to be by the government that functions ever impose and they include an aspect for you that Dennis all major Russian bank But while Johnson said that he wants to go further by banning Russian access to the swift international payment system to do that he's going to need the cooperation of his western colleagues and that includes Germany which is not getting on board at the moment On top of that there's always a risk that these measures will backfire especially given just how closely the 50s has been causing emerging Russian wealth since the end of the Cold War Yeah absolutely I mean the UK sanctions target more than a hundred Russian individuals as well as entities and you mentioned Russia being bathed from raising finance in London a freeze against all major Russian banks for example and also targeting vtb bank Look there could be a direct impact on consumers here in the UK I mean this is the tradeoff isn't it of UK and European sanctions It's that it affects the cost of energy which is already the center of a crisis in Britain So that pain is going to have to be born right The economic effect here Exactly it's hard to think of a worse time to pile pressure on the cost of living in the UK but that's exactly what this was going to do by pushing up food and energy prices because even though the UK isn't as directly reliant as state Germany on Russian death It will cost up competitions and liquefied natural gas That will have a knock on effect for energy intensive industries like steel manufacturing and investors that it could lift the energy price cut by 50% in October on cost number 54% in April intensified the political crisis but it also the Bank of England's headache because while you've got this inflation at the same time the consumer confidence could hold back growth So a supersized march rate hike from the Bank of England is looking less and less likely Yeah I mean it's staggering the numbers in terms of the price cap the energy price cap in April it went to an average of about 1900 pounds for energy bills in the UK That could hit 3000 pounds as you say in October That is a massive impact for voters But thank you so much Lizzie burden on the latest in terms of the UK sanctions and what they mean for Russia but also for the UK Let's turn our attention now to the EU response Bloomberg's Aggie cantrill joins us now from Brussels So the response from the EU backing further sanctions but we'll get the whole package today is that it Aggie That's it exactly We're so we've already heard quite a clear outline of what's going to be in these sanctions And to be honest they are quite tough They target for instance 70% of the Russian banking market in a hope to raise Russia's borrowing costs and inflation And what is notably absent from it as well as the conversations around swift that we've already discussed on with Biden as well What's significant is that that's also the concern around the energy sector and whether sanctioning the energy sector could have a really strong knock on effect for Europe that they are going to have to look at how best Europe could weigh the such commitments Yeah but with war on the doorstep what does the crisis overall mean for Europe I think what it really means is two things Firstly that this is a immediate threat to Europe you're the European Union security as well there are several nations that are part of the European Union that border Ukraine and are currently experiencing inflows of refugees or displaced people from Ukraine But I think what's also really significant and this was very much on display last night Is European leaders especially Emmanuel Macron who has been pushing this ever since he entered the Indies back in 2017 He's really pushed this idea of strategic autonomy and Europe being able to stand on their own two feet when it comes to defense but now their expanding the narrative also to their own energy market and say we need to make sure that we're a self reliant power in our own right so that we're not in a position where we can't act as swiftly as for instance the U.S. or the UK could when it comes to things like the energy market Okay but that could take years a decoupling economies from Russia trying to become either energy independent or sort of more militarily powerful those aims could take years and Putin could well see through some of those it has been years that there have been warnings about Putin's ambitions Absolutely I mean there have been direct threats to Germany after the after the announcement that Nord stream two certification was going to be put on hold Where there are threatening higher gas prices and the fact is is that over half of Germany's gas supply comes from Russia So there is something where Putin can really influence the experiences of particular European nations and I think it's very telling that Germany is at the center of that Europe's.

"Globalist on monocle 24. And finally, on today's program, a former prison on an Italian island is to be turned into an academy for Europe's would be leaders. So what should we know about it? Well, I'm joined on the line by James Iman, who writes for the art newspaper. Good morning to you James. Good morning. Thank you for having me. James, this is a panopticon prison. What does that mean? Well, panopticon was a sort of a theoretical hypothetical prison thought by a guy called Jamie bentham in the 18th century. So a social theorist who imagined a semicircle of prison cells with a watch tower at the center. And the idea is that prisoners didn't know whether or not they were being watched by the guard. And it was a way of forcing prisoners to regulate their behavior. Then, of course, a little bit later in the 20th century, the French philosopher Michel Foucault took the idea of the panopticon and in a book called this discipline and punish took the idea as a metaphor for the way that modern society regulates citizens. And I think it also makes an appearance in a Batman movie. It does. Tell us the history of this particular panopticon prison. Well, okay, so the location of this pretty bleak island, which is very small, 500 meter diameter, 27 hectares, there's nothing there apart from this prison now had been used for centuries as a place to exile, political opponents. Starting with the Romans actually, so famously Julia maggiore, so the daughter of Augustus was sent there. She was accused of adultery in betrayal and sent there with them with her mother. Then the bourbon kings of Naples, which isn't too far away from the island. Decided they were going to build this prison here. Their architect Francesco caripi decided that he was going to use bentham's panopticon as an inspiration for the design. So political prisoners had been sent there by the bourbons and that continued with the foundation of the Italian republics as well. And political prisoners were sent there all the way through to 1965 when the prison was eventually closed. It's got a long history of hosting opponents. How is it linked to the founding of the EU? Well, Mussolini, the fascist dictator of Italy and famously sent communist socialists anybody that opposed him really to this prison. Two people that were sent not actually to the prison, but to a very nearby island because we're speaking here about two islands that are very close together. They're two kilometers apart, then to turn their and center step in a center Stephanie is the slightly smaller bleaker island with the prison on it. Two exiles that were sent to Eminem, where they weren't actually locked up, they were sort of free to roam. This is a process that was called the convener. Decided at these two people are Spinelli and Ross sea. Decided that they were going to write the so called manifesto event and end there. This is in 1941. And what they imagined in this manifesto was a federalist Europe. European nations that united to preserve the peace on these various European nations. That became a founding text of the European union or the European community as it started out. And as a result, Europeans, politicians, young pro Europeans, meet up still on Benton. It's become a bit of a peeled image. It's become a place where people hold conferences, Francois Hollande, Merkel, and renzi, the old prime minister of Italy, recently met there while in 2016 to speak about the future of Europe, shortly after Brexit. So it's European connection remains very strong. And now, of course, it's going to be this wonderful new academy in an artist's residence that will train the next generation of European leaders. It will be dedicated to David solely, is that right? Yeah, that's right. Cecily was, of course, the ex-president of the European Parliament who recently died a big fan of he frequently made trips there. I think in his latest statement, the last statement he made about Benton, which was on the occasion of a conference that's taking place there September 2020 called a cornerstone of Europe. The person that is now looking after the renovation that's overseeing the renovation, a special government commissioner commissioner Sylvia Costa was a member of European Parliament and she was she told me during an interview that she was very good friend of Saturday. So she and the culture minister Dario franchi decided that they ought to name this project. Fantastic. James, thank you so much. That's all we have time for today. Many thanks to all our contributors and all our hardworking staff behind the scenes. The globalist returns at the same time on Monday, I'm Georgina Godwin, thanks for listening..

At least 20 have been killed in shootings and stampedes at the airport since last week. More than 10,000 were evacuated on Monday, but time is running out.
