"florence peterman" Discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House

"Morning from London. I'm Georgina Godwin. And it's a pleasure to have you with us today now. We're looking at Elizabeth Warren and it is also a day before International Women's Day. So I'm pleased to tell you that it's an all woman panel here in the studio and indeed behind the glass engineer today is a woman too. So Elizabeth Bror leads the modern deterrence program at REC- and Florence Peterman is the London bureau chief for the F. P. Welcome to you know when Hillary Clinton lost the US election to Donald Trump or allegedly lost the election to Donald Trump. In Two thousand and sixteen. There were many who feared that it could take a generation for any party to nominate another woman the rise of Elizabeth Warren gave many people some hope alas has we now know it was not to be this week. Msnbc'S RACHEL MOTTO ASKED Elizabeth Warren. Whether the end of her campaign meant that from now on all elections will be fought between two white men in the seventies. His what Senator Warren had to say. Here's how I see this. You get in this fight you know when you go into. There were multiple people who just said. This'll be part of the problem. But you get in the fight because she just gotTa keep getting at it until you finally break. The thing will know that we can have a woman in the. White House finally elect a woman to the White House right. That's what it's take but we're not electing a woman to the White House and we didn't in two thousand and sixteen. Do you think Florence that Hillary Clinton didn't get in because she was a woman. And has that now influenced Elizabeth Warren? It may have played a role although it's difficult really to assess I mean for for this election as saying it's a bit different because The opponent of the Democrat. He's Donald Trump. I think what was really dominating the the Democrat Campaign now is the fact that you you you must by any means Contra this guy so The electorate is going. The delegates are going to choose someone who they think is in the best position to do that and well. Obviously it's not Elizabeth Warren. Maybe she suffered from the fact that she is. Let's say to simplify on the left lane of the Democratic Party and Bernie Sanders was already there when she arrived in was already campaigning. So it certainly didn't help her So yeah I mean I don't see it because she's a woman and there were six nominees. The six women competing which was more than years before. So yes I mean. Let's see next time hopefully it To seventy years Old Men competing time. We'll have to be different. And Sham women are progressing. Yeah I mean I think Florence's right in that it was very much about who could beat trump but Hillary Clinton said that Warren was the victim of unconscious and gendered language. Do you think that's true? It may have been true in in some cases but I think if you look at why Hilary lost to Hillary Clinton Lost Donald Trump. It's first of all. She did win more votes than he did is just electoral. College works away the dust in the US. And then actually. She wasn't a phenomenal campaigner. She's not a great public speaker. Hillary Clinton and so And the very reasons. Why should one one? It's I mean it's it's futile at this point but it's still interesting thinking about what would have happened if another female had run against Donald Trump. Somebody who had been somebody who is better campaigner a foot for example Elizabeth Warren if she had run in the election and then we must remember that there are female politicians who are formidable campaigners including Nicola sturgeon higher think regardless of what we think of the SNP is The UK's most effective politicians good companionship. ineffective I missed Scotland. There is probably always going to be at least for next generation. Some some Bias against women running but As as was already discussed the this Primary season had a number of women running in and actually a number of them surprised in in the way that they they got through to the electrodes emit. Kluber show who would have thought that she would last and yet she lost it pretty long in terms of of that kind of gender language words. It often used about women particularly in in public positions Shrill too am vicious or needy and I think just as as women who are all really in quite senior positions as the three of us are women who are really at the top of their career games or actually one hopes not. We've still got a way to go. But the point is that it's very easy for people to shelters down and that often happens people do still try and do it to us in in meetings And I find that the way that that one automatically tries to counter that is. You're getting louder as you get louder. Of course you get more. Shrill and that is the root of this whole thing of shrill women. Listen it floors. Yes certainly I mean I. I saw that in in my career. Which is maybe longer than years now But still the Yes. I was supposed to be like bad. Temper is always a question of your personality as you say shrill whatever but See I I see a big improvement in this. I mean I think you hear this less now. I mean everybody's conscious of everybody is careful not to use that kind of language and I didn't see that much of vocabulary for a Warren and club. Shine this campaign. I mean it's it's it's it's not the dominant anymore. I think there is an improvement. I say this improvement over the years. What do you find from a personal perspective Elizabeth? In if if you sit in meetings for example or or in conferences or Any events where there's a a mix of people speaking I have found that at a US to wait for my turn. News of indicate. I want to say something and then invariably some men would put jump in without having indicated that they wanted to speak to jump in and now I do the same and you you just have to fight and actually I think there. I'm not going to say the the gender equality battle has been won by this As well said just a minute ago it has improved a lot in in recent years. And if I may make different observation I think that the big inequality face today is Inequality and background so If if you're not from a background of Higher Education if you come from a working class family. I think you will have a much harder. Time getting ahead people from from better off families and so It doesn't matter whether you're a man or woman in either group If you come from a disadvantaged background That is that the big liability you haven't and women from from well off well educated backgrounds Do actually have pretty good opportunities today. Yeah no I mean I think you're right. Let's let's just returned to Warren because she still has some some leverage in this race because we don't yet know who she's going to support do we Florence. Yes I mean you. You tend to think she would support and that's what. He was hoping Bernie Sanders because of anti corruption campaigning because offer more liberal ideas and it would certainly be a boost for him But in the end whether it be enough to to to make him win Administration is is really a question because everybody's tends to think that. Joe Biden is in a better position because he's a moderate to to go and trump again. It's all about eating. Trump COULD WARREN BE. Biden's running mate. I think it's They would make very good Pair that doesn't seem to be a great deal of love lost between the the two of them I think simply because they were fighting for the same electorate and In might also be mistake to have two people have Su? Who have such similar views? When really if Sunday Spanish honest were to be the nominee? He needs somebody who can appeal to to the moderate Part of the American electorate. Because he it's it's clear that he will never win. Swing vote does he. Will he will win. Those who are already On on the left of center well on the left side of the spectrum saloon. Look I think we've we've been avoiding the elephant in the room which is trump but also what trump is saying about the other huge story corona virus the only thing that spreading faster than the covert nineteen virus at. The moment is panic. And it's really not very helpful. Australia has found itself in the grip of a shortage of Lou. Rawls not to panic buying prompting the state premier of Victoria to issue some stern woods. Twitter saying I know people are concerned and I don't want this to come across as insensitive in any way the Premier Road. But it's worth remembering that. There's a difference between being prepared and panicking. What was seeing all supermarkets at the moment is not helpful for anyone especially people who already struggle to get to the shops or afford groceries and I think that we we might need more blunt words from from leaders. Like that. Right now flaw. Yeah I mean I. I heard like in some little villages in the UK which is one of the least affected countries of farm in Europe. One of the with today Only there are some shops that are empty so definitely there are some parts of countries which are panicking I I think the more you talk about it the more you explain about the contagion about how the symptoms All the measure that have been taken by all governments People we tend to be a little more reassured and obviously once there is a vaccination The whole panic will stop but question being. You don't know it's probably a question of months and there is also the idea that maybe this virus is seasonal flu which means in spring summer it would. It would be less Less virulent so how some reasons like to to to to be can but I mean the markets are not obviously it has already huge impact The the only idea is how her how you contain these. Yeah Yeah I mean. Donald Trump is set some extraordinary things Elizabeth on Wednesday. He claimed that the Bama's that Obama Administration's policy had been had made testing more difficult He has said that Humans on Fox News on Wednesday night. He gave multiple rambling answers to questions about the outbreak. And at one point he talked about people who might go to work. When when the mildly ill all very odd things he lashed out at the media when they when they got back at him he's bragging about how successful he's been at stopping the spread of the virus even as the numbers grow in the states. This isn't harmless. It's it's very very dodging isn't it? It is an. It's what's what's more harmless than the spreaders virus itself is these Conflicting narratives about what's going on and and if I may add one more thing. He said he said this. I haven't touched my face in week so as we all know. You're not supposed to touch your face because that brings the germs from your hands to somebody your mouth but anybody who watches Donald Trump. We'll see him in Brooklyn rubbing his exactly and so that was One of his many lies and this one was particularly easy to prove but the problem is what our national leaders are supposed to. Do they supposed to to issue warnings? Like like the Salem Prime Minister are they supposed to Maybe not issued warnings. Telling people to to not panic are they? Are they supposed to tell people to take precautions? It's very hard to to strike that balance. And if I may Bring UP ONE ADDITIONAL PERSPECTIVE. That the problem that we have in our wealthy countries is that we are so used to everything functioning perfectly all the time so when that went any contingency happens. Way Panic if you remember when There was a fifteen minute power in the UK that affected one and a half million people and a number of train lines people panicked and were headlines. Along the lines of apocalyptic scenes of kings cross where there was a fifteen minute power and saying the same thing when the O. Two network went down for one day..

"I let it saturday the eighth of the february this is monaco's house view today so i have more people supporting me in the black community announced for me because they know me they know who i am three former chairs and the black caucus the only black america woman that ever been elected to the united states senate a whole range of people now are took the full why color left unite after the chaos of the iowa caucus one thing is clear the democratic party hasn't yet found a candidate that most voters ready to get behind plus tv ratings are in decline even the oscars can't come on the numbers it once did but it's this fracture being felt in the world politics to all that and the day's newspapers monica's house view starts now good morning in a very warm welcome oh come to midori house in london i'm georgina godwin joined today by two of our favorite guests florence peterman is from the AFC and joe lynam is a journalist umbro because the florence but you know i hope you don't say that to all guests i'm sure she does actually yeah well you both broke us how it is so you you're any your any assume you're projecting you're projecting that's what it is let's talk about the left because the iowa caucus what a shambles it was absolute chaos the technology that was supposed to make voting in the iowa caucus easy instead instead to pandemonium despite all of that the closeness of the result has made it clear that americans as a whole hasn't come to a collective decision as to whom they'll send to face face donald trump and of course without that i mean the the left is lost isn't it florence yeah i mean maybe it's a bit early to say like they are that in shambles divided i mean iowa is a special caucus there will be lots of others at the time being yes you see that there is those two trends like the left you wanted sabrin sanders and the others who are competing in there is there is still no decision and it will probably be be be be too before other circuses but when you speak about the left yeah this is something you can see also in great britain with cobain in who couldn't unite the the party you can see that also in france in the weather is split now between the more moderate socialist and left hosue amis i mean this is a phenomenon you see in in many countries those to transfer more radical side a new more moderate and let's say maybe reality star clear yeah i don't mean joe even in brexit we saw that the voters just could not come to a to a unified position no they struggled i was speaking to a former prominent NPS stresses word former prominent MP last week and he was talking about just how close they came to getting a second referendum asked year and he was saying the real issue for them was the ambition of the lib dem's m.'s who thought they were going to get eighty or more seats in the referenda in the general election in december and as a result they pushed for this general election in which basically did them and the idea of a second referendum out of power and then of course the fact that the labor party couldn't seem to nail their colors list to the mosque they didn't they couldn't decide which way they were going do you think flowers that the american left can learn from the labour party's failed general election campaign i i don't know if you can compare really because cobain also an element that made it difficult to to unite the party i think he was pretty divisive and i don't know if you can compare like brexit and what happened in this country and america brexit was obviously and the fact that people use used to vote labour didn't vote labour anymore was obviously something different like you spend eminem people who fell margin is marginalising the globalization so they wouldn't vote for their favorite party anymore i'm not sure the US is in such a situation will also germany remember the leftists collapse there as well yes PD he has collapsed the party of the left is now the green party and they're not as extreme as they used to be they have accepted that there will be a role for nuclear power for next a couple of years in a way that they didn't a decade ago but the s p d which was the kind of the political cleavage in germany for the want of a better phrase has has disappeared on it it's you know it's it's now weighing the idea does it walk away from the grand coalition in berlin because it's going to lose even more votes super props up the CU which is also becoming popular and i definitely want to come back to that when we have a look at the newspapers because that is all over the german press today just before we leave america america and and and the fact that they can't unite behind a common enemy why do you think those divisions come from france because maybe the enemies stronger no no i mean i wouldn't exist what trump is doing but he managed definitely to occupy your ground that the democrats greta have not occupied remember when i think it's somebody's up when clinton mentioned the deploraball like the voters would vote for trump i think that was really infestation of this there is this part of the country who is listening trump who he has disappeared and it's very difficult for the left to to have finance to this look coffees arrived thank you could i add something on the on the whole iowa thing i mean first of all the idea of caucusing is a shambles it is a joke physically cluster into into corners overhaul in freezing cold temperatures in january or february and then you shuffle around as the votes of play out then you have to phone into some central central office with with with the results of your shuffling in the hall that is laughable in the twenty first century we also so reports in the american media you saw it in the new york times that right wing republican groups deliberately blocked the phone lines and the number four the four the caucasus was posted it unfortunately which is a it's a right wing cut a website so that the republican voters trump maga- fans good phone up and deliberately blocked the line to make it look shambolic and this is all about perception this is very clever by the republicans they paint a picture whatever you think about donald trump at least he get things done he's not a shambles like the democratic yeah let's look at island because obviously you've got a strong a connection nobody the evidence to make assumption there this week and of course the left there is champagne it's amazing the the the irish labour party party which was the left wing party has all but collapsed because they went into government with phinda which center right party in twenty seven after after the economic collapse they were punished politically for allowing austerity to happen in a way that the lib dem's were punished here in the UK so so the left now is as you say shin fain and they of course have a lot of baggage they are attached to a private army it's the only western european political the party which has its own private army and they are very popular in the latest polling because they represent change represent left-wing change and my assessment assessment is that the irish electorate have banked the economic recovery this is fine in the i will take that i'm assuming now the economy is safe so i can now gamble gamble with my vote and do something to level up to use that phrase it's us a lot and that means better housing better public transport better healthcare stuff of the left because they're assuming that the stuff of the right the economy that's sorted i don't need to worry about that and that's a very big big assumption do you think at the end of sensuous politics it takes an hour it's ireland is the only western european country that doesn't have the so-called political cleavage the two biggest parties in galen finna fall are both center right there tweedle dum and tweedle dumber they are very similar parties but then again in the united states democrats and republicans auto center right parties and that it's been the case for two hundred years who knows finish fall gaels lineage goes back to the civil war in ireland immediately after the brits left in nineteen twenty one twenty two it was whether you're pro treaty with with the UK or anti treaty anti treaty were seen a fall and appropriate seen as vinegar it goes back one hundred years it could go for another hundred years because memories are so long and divisive and just you're mentioning mackerel earlier florence and and just looking at the left right right divide there in france i mean we've seen the right really wither away and the left no no i mean he emit this incredible gamble and he wanted like the right is in shambhu but there are still it's strong in municipalities for example but the left is like disappeared i mean i was thinking when we mentioned the liberal party i mean this is also something that is kind of a threat for them i mean it is possible for a social democrat party to disappear this is what happened in front fronts mcconnell was really very clever in the way he did it so you would define him now i would say like more central right than anything else you know after did the jurors in power you can more or less have a definition of who is because he pretended was neither right nor left but that's what brought him to power in the end yes you still celeb- this you know classifications your policy tends to be more favorable to let's say the business community than to go on so you have been but he i mean people don't need probably these definitions anymore right left well i wonder if it is a problem then of mixed messaging so if if we look at a broader picture take popular entertainment television is in decline in the late ninety s more than fifty five million people watch the oscars tomorrow cermony cermony be lucky to crack maybe thirty million so generally speaking there are less people watching TV than ever before now that's i would imagine because of the rise of streaming streaming there's no more appointment to view television is there i would you're right but the figures but you're talking about linear television as people sitting down at a set time to watch chip you write that number is going down but if you add up all clips that are watched from the oscars in the immediate aftermath i'd say you're still as high as fifty five billion people people might not watch the three hour ceremony in a linear television they thought they might watch large swathes of it or certain chunks of it that they want it's different type consumption as someone who's worked in television for more than twenty years i need to defend television it's death has been predicted quite a few times and and as mark twain said has been greatly exaggerated for big big events in this country in the UK and in my country in arlon people do sit down to watch big events that could be something like strictly come dancing that could be something like only fools and horses that could be whatever it is but but it's part of a national occasion we in this country there was a very popular comedy show called gavin and stacey those watched by i dunno was at twelve or thirteen million people all all sitting down at the same time to watch so i don't think television is dead i just think it'll be chopped up into little bite size pieces i mean that brings us onto what's happening with the with the british just broadcasting corporation with the BBC so the government has said that the BBC should no longer or it's suggesting that pops in the future the BBC should no longer have a license fee whereby i people in britain are made it's mandatory to pay a license fee in order to to receive the channel and that looks like it's going to be swept aside huge huge debate about this with people saying well actually you you pay for net flicks you pay for amazon you pay for all of those these other platforms which don't give you a sport which don't give you a national events which don't give you radios well which i mean just the BBC as a national broadcast gives so much more within a platform light net flicks for instance yeah i i was really surprised by this debate i mean ebbing shocked to like as you say there is this this really strong sense for the BBC if you know common interests of educating the public you know of being public service and the bruce jensen government is to.

"Is his Monaco's house view. Today Nancy Pelosi is just about ready to send articles of impeachment against the US president to the Senate but what happens next. Plus France grinds to a halt amid some of the worst strike since nineteen sixty eight can Emmanuel macron. Find a way out of the mounting crisis. Oh that and the day's newspapers to Monaco's house view starts now good morning. I'm Georgina Godwin win. Unwelcome to studio one at MIDORI. House in London and two twenty twenty. It's all first Saturday edition of the House view in the New Year and a warm welcome to shoot my guests who is celebrating that with me. They are Florence. Peterman the London Bureau chief and tells Hecker from control risks. Welcome to you both. Thank you for coming in good morning. Thank you wanting. We're waiting for our buns until delivered to US whilst where on s I'm really just killing time till I can stuff my mouth with Carter. We're GONNA I need the carbs for the broadcasts today. Well just before we get into the top story and obviously we will be looking at the newspapers in a moment. But first you've just pointed out this cultural phenomenon that we are all very serious minded people at least would like Sweden that way and yet what is dominating the global conversation. It's it's the monarchy after brexit makes it. I mean I've always been surprised. I've been hearing this country since four years of the degree of passion that Brits supposed to be cool-headed can put like into brexit and now in to make because it really becomes like the new psychodrama in the country and it is also taken very very seriously abroad like I was surprised that long which is the most serious news one of the most serious french-speakers who editorial about it and there is for the monarchy monarchy. It's also on the headlines of the fats in Germany which is also this kind of newspapers so something that is a story for tabloids is now so popular popular around the world at even more serious. Newspapers are really concentrating on it like to ask whether it would have serious consequences. Why do you think we care? I think that what's happening with the Royal Family at the moment is something that crosses soon many different types of issues here. You have a young married couple starting a family here. You have a woman who is A feminist thoroughly modern and professional and who came into the royal family from the outside you have concepts of the role of inherited wealth the role of privilege the role of entitlement. You have race in the question. I I think this particular Moment brings together so many different strands that it is genuine captured The world's attention an and the other thing is that yes everybody likes to look at pictures of the Royal Family. Everybody likes to fantasize about the royal family but I think what the rest of the world really likes more than anything else. Good scandal scandal If if if the royal family spent all of their time cutting ribbons in front of schools and hospitals It wouldn't be all that interesting. I think that this is a really juicy moment of scandal. And that's what the outside world wants. And that's why I think the crown does so well because basically what you've got in. The crown is mixed between reality television Russian scandal and the Royal Family. And it's autry it could run forever cut it and don't forget also that family drama aspect like everybody has a family. Everybody ready has or has not to spend Christmas with the family. So I guess everybody can relate to this story some house yeah listen. Let's talk to some talk about something that is genuinely he's This is that the news broke yesterday. That Nancy Pelosi was preparing to send articles of impeachment against the president to the Senate. Now it's essentially the next step in the impeachment process. It'll pave the way for a trial but what fool not child takes is still an open question tells policies playing quite tactical game here And it's all about the what form the child takes to tell us more as like Nancy Pelosi continues to prove herself to be a master tactician in in the politics of Washington. Not just the grand macro politics but some of the machinations nations in the manipulations and the maneuvering of process in the House of Representatives and the Senate in Congress and what she has done and is once. The Lower House of Congress impeached the president's essentially charged him with obstruction of justice and abuse of power. Those charges have to be transferred over to the Senate for the trial But Nancy Pelosi. Who's representative a longstanding servant in the House of Representatives held onto that process? What she tried to do as a couple of things She tried to really turn up the temperature on the White House by creating something thing that would linger through the election process that we've got the campaign for president coming up this year on the other thing that that Mrs. Pelosi wanted to do was pressure. Some of the senators who are up for reelection in the coming year to push for a fair process in the the Senate That may not happen. And and really. You can't run out the clock indefinitely on this process. So what she will do issue will turn this over to the Senate but Democrats in the Senate will push at every turn for a thorough open. an aggressive trial including the calling of witnesses. Because what she said in her letter was in an impeachment trial. Every senator takes an oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and lose an influence that is not what Senator Mitch McConnell who's Republican and the majority leader has said that he'll do I mean he's basically saying they will cooperate with the White White House in every way. Yeah and that's the difficulty of the whole story because from the START I mean since the Senate as a conservative majority how are the Democrats going to go over this obstacle title as Nancy Pelosi tries to but in the end they I guess they won't have all the voices they need. And it's it's an electoral year. How can you imagine that two parties is going to to shoot at his own president? I mean I in his own camp it makes the situation more difficult. What about fairness I mean? Of course this is how the Democrats look at it but for the Republican may be there is fairness in this. I mean I don't know. It's just a bipartisan question. In the end although Susan Collins might be a little ray they have hope now. She's a Republican. She seems to be open to allowing witnesses in the impeachment trial. There are a few senators who always waiver up to the very last minute but but then typically including Susan Collins take the side of the Republican Majority Susan Collins herself is up for re election In the coming year. She's the senator from from Maine and under incredible pressure on her home turf and and she has when it came to obamacare and it came to other sort of critical issues that were coming down to a knife edge vote. She's wavered but she's usually caves. You might say at the very end of the process and it looks like while she maybe maybe be be lukewarm on all of this she will take the side of Mitch McConnell and she will Take Caucus with the larger group of Republican Senators Commit Romney for awhile was a bit of a wild card and made a very strong public stance to call witnesses in this process But spoiler alert really in the in this whole process no matter how long it lasts and no matter how dramatic it becomes politically. The president will not be convicted. It's a question really of just how long it's GonNa take in hell painful. The process will be you know. Tell us I believe you and I think you're absolutely right but I would like to hold out some hope that actually actually looking at trump's very very erratic behavior certainly recently His speech about Iran where he seemed just completely out of it. I wonder if there isn't a case for Republicans turning against him for there to be some big health crisis For for it to fall apart. What let's look at this as is a small example? So you had matt gets who is one of the strongest pro trump Congressman supporting a limitation tation of the president's powers in the war powers act. He actually said you know what. Hang on a second. Let's let's take a beat here and let's not let the president go to war with Iran. Willy Willy Nilly and the Republicans trampled him and they said No. You do not step out of line when it comes to defending the president And and you do not break Republican Solidarity So I really don't think no matter what you see. In the president's behavior whether it's legal or financial or political or military or psychological on there is a wall of Republicans who were supporting him and anyone like Matt Gaetz who steps out of line. This is a guy who's as a star of Fox News commentators He stepped out of line and the immediately shut them down. But these are not stupid people they can see that. This man is not rational so is it's just about Paula. Maybe this man is not as Russian or you sit Georgina on Iran. For example you can see now that he's trying. I mean he's quitting putting down the situation like he brought it to a crisis level and after that level of crisis was reached then it was a bit more open to a narrow discussion Russian. So I I wouldn't just describe trump as irrational full stop I mean and why would then the Republican support him if he was that Russian. You can ask the question in another way. I believe. It's because it's it's power at at any price isn't it. They need to hold onto that. There is this duality of the impeachment process in general and that is it is sort sort of quasi legal but primarily political. This is not happening in a courthouse. And you do not have a judge in a robe at the front of the room room and and and Andrew Junior frames absolutely right about saying you know. Is this about party loyalty. Or is this about dedication to the constitution and it's sort of both and the reason why are these processes are so messy and ultimately a bear very very little fruit is that it's the politics that pollutes them. And while there are serious issues of the conduct of state and the highest state officer. It's all going to boil down to politics. Let's move to France on. Says we all shrug our shells. Roller is Francis we know has been brought her standstill over the past few weeks amidst its longest transport strikes in decades. Hundreds of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets to voice anger over pension reform including thousands of police officers rail employees and more than a third of the nation's is teachers Florence. This was part of macron's election promise wasn't as a pension reform. Yeah reform is was. He's electoral platform actually Now what is a bit different in. This is that He's going further than what he had and Nancy. We do on the pension reform. So it's worth doing. Because majority of people. In France and knowledge. They need reform. They need reform and pension but then after they disagree on how it is being run and Michael has not been the best tactician in this. I think so yes. He said he would revamp the system but There is a new element that is completely blocked.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, truly. Yes, it's a start. And when when you think of all the the reluctance and the common saying, it wouldn't be possible to to enforce the law. So it's let's say a good start. And let's see how it develops. But definitely at least, you know, you have this possibility. I think also what was in the mind of the minister is to create kanowa, psychological effect. You know, maybe not everybody will be fine. But at least the people who behave this way, we know they they can be fine. And it's not acceptable. I think this is really the very important aspect of this low. Do you think a cultural change will occur at the speed at which people were which? Happening. It is. I mean, you've noticed it changing. It's difficult because I don't go often to to price for that.

"Tune in weekly to the bulletin with UBS for all the latest insights and opinions from UBS and experts from around the world. French president Emmanuel Macron gave him much -ticipant address. Yesterday has speech that's been delayed for over a week because of the huge fire Nacho Dom cathedral. His televised remarks came in response to the yellow vest protests, which have caused a cloud over the last six months of his presidency and prompted a great national debate an exercise in which Macron heard complaints from hundreds of thousands of French voters history. Explain it all is Florence Peterman AFP London bureau chief Florence thanks for coming in after three months of negotiations. President Macron has vowed to press ahead with his government's program to transform France. He said that public order must be restored. How does he plan to achieve this? Yeah. That's what is very striking is intervention yesterday. Started after five minutes by saying that he was right in what he was doing his line. The direction is giving to his reformist government is right. And there should be a return to public. Order as you said like there was this month's of tuition by the reverse at time, very violence, and this gave affronts abroad and also in the country that that cannot be tolerated very much longer. So I think like reaffirming that people has to come back was something he had to do anyway because this is a request even from from the French people, but no concrete detail on how actually that will be chief where that will be police measures and during his own intervention, by the way, he gave the lead said the big picture of what he wants to achieve. There was not really much details like for example, mentioned like tax cuts for the middle class. But he didn't give any figures on this. I guess this will be left to to the prime minister to give more details. What he wanted to achieve to to talk to France as who'll after this long national debate and to give some answers to to the request and the. That have been expressed. But what is also remarkable?

This week focuses on predictions for the year ahead today. We hear how despite a turbulent political landscape in two thousand eighteen there may be reasons to be cheerful people's value systems.

His choices may be very bad news, the human rights with papers and business news to that's all ahead right here on the globalist life. In london. As expected at all kicked off again in Paris this weekend, the Djilas urine or yellow vest. Protests continued with demonstrators taking to the streets for the fourth weekend in a row in a protest, which was originally sparked by fuel tax increases, but which has grown to be broadly anti-government, there was a huge police presence on the streets of Paris, which all but shut down Florence Peterman. Who is a f- London bureau chief is with me now, it's what data's on the latest developments. Florence quite an exciting time for you not to be in your in your home country. Actually, it must be a little frustration to be watching it from here. I'm following that very closely. But since I'm also following Brexit. You know have enough emotions. In my in my job. I believe something like over a thousand arrests were made this weekend. All those people remanded in custody. I mean, many of them have some hundreds of them have been kept right now. I mean, what happens to them in the would go on court. It's not that. They will go on Jade, I mean, I know last time many have had what what is called Bella Mitch mean they have been scalded and don't do that again for some some others. It could be much more serious like everybody. So like the the damage that was done again in Paris on Saturday. It was not as spectacularly violent as the the the Saturday before. But, but it was even worse in a way because it's to the the whole city and for for the mayor of as I mean, the damage the economic damages even worse, and there was a huge police presence. Do you think that that inflamed or deterred the violence deter definitely I mean, all these arrests have been many of them have done even before the beginning of the demonstration. So. Oh, definitely. I mean, they manage to contain. I mean that was not this flare violence on the desire, for example, again, it was like small groups like having kind of guerrilla tactic here or there in Paris. But yes, the managed to contain. But just looking at the police presence. I mean, armored cars is that the first time they'd been used on the on the streets of earth. Yeah. It's the first time. I mean, it has been used in the suburbs for house in the suburbs. But that kind of cows. Yes, I it's it's it's a I in Paris near the center of Paris. They were reports that ordinary citizens stayed away because of the threat of violence. Do you think that's the case who was on the streets, not many people? I mean, I saw there was a trophy Tuma. Some tourists were still there very few. But this is the complaint of many people in perilous. Those will even shows have not been out of further flat for the for the whole day just like the week before. No. So definitely I was kind of shut down city. Let's of museum the Terrell the coma..

"You're back with Madari house with me on Melissa with me, Arlanda, you and Florence Peterman and here in the UK, it seems that loss to have don't on the people running the place that Brexit is actually going to happen. And quite soon. Even if nobody seems all that clear on how the Prime Minister Theresa may remain pretending to be a lever is offering to debate the leader of the opposition. Jeremy Corbyn, Aleve pretending to be a reminder on television, given that everyone already knows what they both claim to think the usefulness of this exercise seems debatable. Meanwhile, further projections about the effects of Brexit, especially a no deal one continue to emerge, none of them encouraging Florence on the debate first of all how excited to you. Will you be clearing your Shedu for that? Even if they do manage to agree which television channel it's actually going to be on whether or not it's going to clash with the final of strictly come dancing. Clash with. I'm still missile Betty, Lou the truck being a foreigner. It's not a full of very very closely, sweetie. Condensing? So it's easier for me like to follow the debates. Okay. That's the one with that. That's not. So it's the one without the cakes or the dancing, right? Yeah. It would be still a thrilling political moment. Let's say it's debatable. As you said. Whether this will have strong impacts on the voters, but it will be interesting. You know, because maybe we will learn more about what journey coding vivants as you said like remain or lever says n- never been very clear. So let's wait and see if we learn anything on that side because undecided to resume we know already. What she said if indeed so Linda the economic consequences actually, talking to come into focus now, I think so I think we've had some pretty stark assessments coming hazard. It's have you noticed that very the very precise phrase that the chancellor and the prime minister, you said all the assessment showed that under every scenario. So so long as the UK is not to the single market GDP over the next fifteen years is going to be smaller by some percentage. Smallest 'bout a fifth of a percent to his highs about ten percent. But the chancellor said it's a very modest amount. Relative to project it growth in the central scenario. So them Theresa May said it's not true to say, we're the country country's going to be poor. The you see that turn of phrase because the economy is growing. So you're not as you're not going to be poor. But you're not going to be as rich as you were. I think that'd be the more fair way to phrase the. But I mean, I I'm mentioning all of this because I think no one really knows what it's going to look like in fifteen years, but what has become clear between the Bank of England. The government in all sorts of independ-. Dependent assessments, the consensus is that in the short term. There's going to be an economic hit. Now, my worry is that that's all pretty well known even if you allow for the politicians sort of version of it at that's pretty well understood. I think the big unknown is whether or not any of these financial institutions companies that government is ready to leave the EU on March twenty ninth without a deal. If the withdrawal agreement isn't gift through parliament on December, the eleventh centuries may set today, she will prepare for a no deal scenario, if she doesn't get at the votes to pass the withdrawal deal now, it's it's fine for her to say she's going to prepare. But look at the timing. I mean, you only have a few months, and I think governor Mark Carney, the Bank of England said today, most of the companies they've surveyed he doesn't think. The majority or most of them are prepared have been thinking about no deal. Sense of how concerned the rest of the EU is about a no deal Brexit because obviously it would be it would be very very very bad for the United Kingdom. But it wouldn't be great for the rest of the you either. Just be bad. When it would be very very bad for the u k now, the French minister finance today's it all well, the French companies are are not prepared enough for not scenario. But I think nobody really ease. You know, because as in the said, I mean to make predictions scenarios forecast what will be in fifteen years even in six years. You know, what I mean, it's so difficult..

"I'm Andrew Muller on today show. The goal in Georgia is to change the mentality and to finally movie to western twenty-first-century society. Georgia has a new president. With an unlikely backstory. My guests, Linda, you and Florence Peterman will be discussing this and the day's other top stories, including the arrival of global leaders for the g twenty summit in Argentina, including a US president who might have reason to be cranky of the neutral, the ongoing rearrangement of deckchairs by British politicians as the iceberg approaches. And what would you pay for a bit of Eiffel tower? That's all coming up on the Dory. House on monocle twenty four. And welcome to Madari house. My guests today are Linda you broadcaster and author of the great economists and Florence Beadman the London bureau chief, Asians FRANZ press. Welcome both. We will look first at Buenos IRAs currently welcoming the first national leaders arriving for this year's G twenty summit, and as of the latest appearance in Manhattan caught by his former attorney Michael Cohen a few hours ago. American President Donald Trump might be especially keen to get moving. If it turns out that Argentina's extradition treaty with the US has an a useful loopholes apart from shared amusement at Trump's gathering legal difficulties. The assembled leaders will have much to discuss trade conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and how long a given Middle Eastern potentates should need to wait to be welcome back into the fold after ordering the murder of a journalist, Linda we will start with the hapless Michael cones just appearance in court this morning. I now I'm frankly losing count of what he's pleaded guilty to. At this point this time, it seems to be lying to congress about Trump's business interests in Russia, which I don't know you'd have to say that bad, isn't it? It is bad because at the time line. So am Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty to misleading one line to congress. He said that the attempts to get Trump Tower and built in Moscow. He said those attempts ended in January twenty sixteen but it turns out that's not true. So it when turn intil June twenty sixteen at this means that it is actually during the campaign period. So this raises all sorts of questions about others in the Trump organization, perhaps individual one, there's a very there's a reference to individual one in some of these proceeded is a reference to individual to as well, which I think we can read is individual one junior. And so I think so I think what this is opening up is all sorts of questions about what others have said and lied about to congress, and whether or not the extent of the dealings with Russia if it happened during the campaign period, I think it reopens a whole bunch of issues about whether we're not there was four influence in the American presidential elections, which is clearly not allowed under the rules Florence. Do. We think it is altogether coincidental. That on the same day Michael Cohen appears again in court Donald Trump announces that he will not be meeting. Vladimir Putin in Windsor is he's claiming this is to do with Ukraine will say he's claiming to do this is to do with Ukraine and Russia, he's Twitter feed in a series of let's say unusually well, punctuated and temperate tweets is saying he's not a meeting vitamin Putin. So I think someone's Russell these phone off him again in the last few minutes. It's also been. That he's canceling his formal meetings with South Korea and Turkey. So presumably if it rains as well, he's he's just not going to go anywhere. It's just a mess. Change his mind all the time. So trying to be his Ed and knowing exactly if there is a link between the counseling, the meeting with Putin and less development is really difficult. It's the same like about trade with China humidity clarityn because he left Washington. Our we'd have a lot to about an hour. But in the end, no eastern on ground. So this is such an predictable character, that's honesty, who couldn't know what's in his head..

"From any good bookstore. And if you've just joined us, you're listening to Madari house where live on Monaco twenty four, seven Nelson here in studio. One joined by folks in Florence Peterman then which is three years and one month since the diesel gate scandal plunged German car manufacturing into crisis than shattering long held perfect reputation. Diesel gate is still ongoing today. Germany's transport ministry has ordered around one hundred thousand OPEL vehicles to be recalled a day after prosecutors searched, the carmakers offices or many of the big names affected by these Gators out in BMW are based in Bavaria the region which saw political upheaval this weekend. So has diesel gate had anything to do with a political mess? Various main politicians have found themselves in, let's begin with you Florence, you would immediately countered that wouldn't you say actually, no. You have experience of working in Germany, but the the Bavarian elections, we had a drop in the support for the ultra-conservative ceus. You have been in power for what seven decades, but the big big winner. With the greens? Yeah, I would say in Germany, that was always an even in Bavaria like a strong feeling for environment. I mean, well, before I would say in the rest of western Europe. So this is kind of a really uncle tradition in Germany. This movement, what's writes me more? Yes. It's the fact that the is is losing ground. Now, as you said, there'd been poorest in seventy years, so maybe it's time for a change in the end. And they are also in a way associated with the miracle and are very, very tolerant policy towards migrants, which made also the extreme right. We win grown. I mean, everybody's happy because the green still have more voices than they have. But definitely the also was one of the say winner of of this election, so I wouldn't personally linked to to the gate, and by the way it is gate has also had some kind of, let's say, a contradictory reserved for the German industry. You said it was a blow said it was bad for them, but in a way, forced them also to. To diversify and to, to develop more of for electric car to develop more other techniques than techniques depending on diesel so India. And I think the can't products the prophet of the crisis to renew themselves. So I think the industry German is still have a future would be happy to me saying that very surprised at least the next few years. I mean, given flaws has really good a very good point and it hasn't she. I mean, BMW the pioneers both high end of every day pretty much upmarket. Electric cars. Audi has just joined the the the, the Dale as well. This is something that has been perhaps that moment when diesel gate has constantly been a thorn in the side of German car manufacturing hasn't it. I mean, the fact that it has gone on day after day after day the last three years with new manufacturers being exposed, a new secrets being unveiled. I think it's something to do with the politics of German industry and the heritage from the reconstruction of the great boom of Greg grand coalition of earheart in the sixties. I respect Florence associates in the kind of people that she talks to probably the top end of the business. I have a nephew and niece who are very much involved in Germany's German industry and high tech, a new tack. My Minnie's Catharina who's banker was lost and was extracted as a sixteen year old should go to the Humboldt.

"I'm not sure this is what people remember intervention and no. I mean, it's just a second second question. What what is interesting also is that me in serve is routing to the possibility of being impeach in. I think it's the first time. So which means is right on the defensive and still like there is something really bothering for him in all this. Have we reached in the last, I guess, especially seventy two hours a point at which now seems slightly likely the defense thing is to bring him down before his time. It will be the fact of paying off his mistresses and then lying about rather than being in the tank to Russia. Well, I've always, I'm very satisfied about this. If I, if this is what happens, that always argued that the Russia element was to a large degree. Not exactly a figment of people's imagination petitioned been. It had been exaggerated and it'd been made the focus where actually it should not have been the focus, but I think we've seen with all whether it's impeachments or other people getting into trouble elsewhere. It's always the case that is not what what people actually do. It's what they lie about afterwards that gets them into trouble. And that's what we saw. With the last Embi impeachment effort with Bill Clinton. It wasn't the fact of what he done a horrific, though. That seems especially in this sort of metoo day and age. It was the fact that he covered it up and he lied about it. And so the charges against him in the house of representatives that were then passed to the what was the Senate trial were perjury and obstruction of Justice, and it's exactly that that Trump could possibly be vulnerable to just a final thought on this Ron. Florence continuing refrain from Trump is still that he thinks Paul manafort's an absolutely fantastic guy model citizen to whom my terrible terrible wrong has been done even by Trump standards though pardoning Manafort would be quite a, let's be, let's be charitable and Kolata bold move. Yes, but that could move, although I'm not sure legally could do that. He, I think if it's not if it's something to do as a crime like the intern, he come people convicted of federal crimes. He's the president goods. We will take a short break. Now you are listening to Madari house with me, Andrew along with Mary digest key and Florence beat him and coming up.

"So welcome back. You are listening to Meduri house with me. Daniel Bauge either Gaber and Florence Peterman. We turn our attention now to Cambodia where the Prime Minister Hun Sen. has tightened his grip on power extending his rule for another five years in yesterday's election has been widely dismissed as sham. The CPI the Cambodian People's Party says it won all one hundred twenty five seats in parliament with over three quarters of the vote, both the US and the EU have called the elections flawed and announce they are considering actions. Following the election results I ever is what is the most suspicious aspect of election personal. It's a mixed bag because on the one hand, one hundred twenty five seats which does raise an eyebrow too. But normally when dictate is having an election. The Turner is usually like ninety-nine percent. So I think somebody's head will roll is only a Turner seventy seven point five percent which which suggests that the opposition the main opposition parties called for a boycott. It was relatively successful. Well, interesting times reported that about six hundred thousand ballots were spoiled. Which is a bit of an increase from before I guess attack they've used. Yeah. I mean, I hate to offer advice to the prime minister, say about how to make his ballot fixing more efficient. I do think this is something he needs to look at turnout should not be seventy seven point, five percent when you're seeking to run a corrupt poll, you know the traditional ninety nine. So I mean, I'm being slightly cynical here. I do think that there's a real problem in in Cambodia apart from the it's very tragic country which needs all support. It can get that. It's validating. It's election using what most of the industrial community is phony. Election, observation missions, which raises issues about fake news actually, and devalue the currency of election observation. If this trend continues, I wonder under sometimes about the if there is a. Complete Mr. understanding of democracy and South Asia. Sometimes we look at me and mar, the Philippines and others their countries that sort of play at democracy, but they continued to pretend. Why is that Florence? Do you think they would say in that culture? I guess this is usually the argument that is used. I think the point also is that the election was gaining some momentum in Cambodia. And in the last region local election, they won't something like more than forty percent of the vote. So I think this time and that was the last year. So insane was really afraid like he would lose his grip. That's why I think you organized this kind of ridiculous addiction without any opposition with the website of opponents being closed. I mean, so why make an addiction? Yeah, it was purely formal, but I think he really fed that was a challenge. They're very swift reaction, but he didn't seem to be hiding the way they went about this election. Were you surprised by the reaction. Well, no. I mean, wh what's at stake is yes. As you said, democracy in small country in the middle of Asia is still has the super of China. So I think also this this plaza rolling in the decision that doesn't even want to pretend his running country particularly. And even if the US and the you are protesting or maybe canceling some ED's. I mean, it may not be that crucial to him. As long as China is China was even helping give money to buy the. I mean, China, you know, as a helper in election, imagine the kind of result it gets. Raise a smile. This is literally what would Chinese election observers know about elections reminds me of an alleged conversation between a British politician and a Soviet politician as of and the politicians said, we don't understand why you, you have elections when you're unable to guarantee the result. And China being the election is a bit like, oh, I can think it was analogies, but you know, it's, it's, it's ridiculous. They do not have a tradition. And actually when you talk to Chinese politicians and journalists, do they accept that they're not a democracy, they wanted to Surtees why they should the combustions would think that it'd be useful to have that imprimatur because the reason they have election observers, because if the.

"Hello and welcome to majori house coming to you. Live from studio one here in London. I'm Daniel Bauge on today's show a few days ago I called the fake news, the enemy of the people, and they are. They are the enemy of the Donald Trump and the publisher of the New York Times are in a row over the president's threats against journalism. My guest Florence Peterman and either Gaber will be discussing this and the day's other top stories, including French president. Emmanuel Macron's popularity is reported to have fallen to a new low and yesterday's election result in Cambodia where the ruling party won. One hundred percent of the seats in parliament which has both the US and EU considering sanctions and visa restrictions plus why it matters where politicians had for their summer holidays. That's all to come on Midori house with me. Daniel Bauge. So welcome to Midori house. My guest today, Ivor Gaber and Florence. Biedermann welcome both to the program. We begin in the US where Donald Trump is a name war of words with a longtime foe. The New York Times Trump and the publisher of the times a g. Salzburger have clashed over the president's threats against journalism. Mr. souls. Berger said the president had misrepresented a private meeting, which the times was originally told to keep off the record ivory perhaps will start with you. This is a familiar pattern for Trump correct. Originally, he says the meeting was very good and interesting, but then see something he doesn't like and goes on a tirade on Twitter, it's it must be very difficult working Mr. Trump because you know, as a brief as a press officer you and you told you this was really positive, and you know, just the stuff we see on the record of the wreckage you'll guiding journalists. This is really moving host and that whilst the very moment you're doing that the president is tweeting the complete reverse. I'm sure it's a very good negotiating tactic to completely destabilize your opponent. They never know if you're coming guys friend or foe, whether it's a good way to run the country is in other issue and in particular and I can come to discuss. I do think it's very dangerous territory. This undermining the press undermining the media because without a free press, you don't have democracy. And I think it's almost becoming a real issue for America. What did you make of this meeting and the sort of new publisher while he's son of another publisher of the New York Times, but he's new in this job. He's been there since January gets invited to this meeting at the White House and and said he was very serious and stern with Mr. Trump and left there with the idea that they had a little bit of an understanding. Should he have expected anything or was this always what was going to happen? If he's genetics, then he observed the prison for this doing this year. He knows what to expect. I mean, which is not much. Nobody thinks it's because Mr. Trump meets journalists that he will change his mind on the press and agree that the terms he's using completely inacceptable like enemy of the people. I mean, it's the kind of book luxury you have in autocratic countries. I mean, for this was even compared to step in, you know, like because to journeys as any of the people has been done in the past in tragic occasion. So what it reminds me is whether like regime like the. Turkish regime air Doane pretending the journalists that are in jail are terrorists? No. So it's the same kind of, you know, designating. For. Victim for for for the public outrage. I mean, which the public is is clever enough in America not to full completely for it. Of course, Trump's follow will probably follow, but still, I mean, it creates an atmosphere that has nothing to do with which expecting a democracy that was demonstrated very frighteningly documentary..
