"Twenty in paris. Seven twenty here in london which we're going to head to fronts now because the government there has been forced to backtrack on the controversial article twenty four law which would make it illegal in many cases to circulate or publish images of police officers. The pressure on the government president emmanuel macron increased when images emerged last week. Police beating and racially abusing a black music producer. Both issues had drawn thousands of people onto the streets or the bill will now be completely rewritten and parliament and france's interior minister. Gerald domino has now outlined proposals for police reform for more. I'm joined on the line by brokered yellow and filmmaker based in paris very warm. Welcome to the program. Good to have you thank you. Good morning let us begin with yesterday's events where the The french police chief. Google was subject to some very intense questioning. Wasn't he yes he was. He was because a- trajan transit is very very intense. There have been many people protesting in the streets because of the bill and the wait could restrict civil liberties so there was a very very important concerns among the politicians because of how that bill would be a civil rights and freedoms of expression in house and it says prompted When you combine that with the images of the beating in racial abuse of a black music producer last week you end up with the focus very much being on the french police chief d you and accusations that the police in france assess systemically racist insisted and have huge structural problems here and it was something that he denied. Isn't it yes he did. And most of the people at the head of the denied that there is a Be again institutional racism host There was that a man michelle o'clo- who was a Severely beaten by the police Last week but also another issue with other images that went in that that spread over social media offer migrant camp that was very brutally cleared by the police On that case one of the journalists was covering the clearing was also beaten several times by the same officers so they just showed how deeply violence booted into the bodies practices. What is astonishing is that this is not new. I mean if you cost your minds back to one thousand nine hundred five. In the end the film latin woke. I think the whole world up to to to the the more complicated and difficult sides of parts of french society examples in that were of The police being portrayed as being effectively the enemy and yet we had. It's happening again with the film les miserables. This year almost the same narrative being played out. There is a sense that not much has moved on in years and years. What is it the to stopping. This from improving. I think that our demand difficulty in france is just the fact to recognize that there is systemic balancing the police. because you just mentioned a the femur But they they have also been Warnings from international institutions to france. France has been sentenced several times but the european court of human rights including torture because of the beliefs being brutal to visualize people so i think that they really need to have a weakening and having public outrage in order to pose the institutions in the particular government To react at least but the they're not ready to admit that there is a major problem of binds racism in paris. Even if we have had a images that did here this year of a police officers insulting minorities and being being having that been captured in in videos. One thing that some people have suggested that the timing of the few days events has been a significant effort by the french government to try to distract attention away from the fact that it has had to withdraw article for twenty four and it will actually try and rewrite it and they've decided that at deleted on distract people from that they're going to put all the focus on federally von and make it. Look as if it's all his full exactly and that's the difference between individual and hysteric and you know putting putting everything on his back whereas the property's really systemic so the doesn't depend on individuals but it's really the fact of a system that allows violence at los racism and the thing is that there is that provision in the bill the article twenty four hundred east Magic but he's not the only one. There is also another article that allows the police to deploy drones using facial recognition to monitor demonsration That means that there is also under the issue regarding civil liberties and freedom to demonstrate in the As the police would have more rights to document into to keep data's on people who are freely demonstrating so that the bill in itself is is problematic. It's it's has been denounced in that way by civil liberties defenders tell what will happen now with article twenty four. The interior minister gel domino's was seen as a driving force behind it but it was also Being keyed into a macro moving further to the right more of a law and order kind of president in order to gain votes. yes the thing is that so that domino a the interior ministry said that the the that provision at specific provisions would be rewritten. So we don't know in what way it would be written and the thing is that many commentators Are saying that the bill the provision will be. Maybe returning that in that bill but the it may be put in another one at the separatism beyond that is aimed to fight terrorism so if at the end of the day that provision still exists in another bill. The preliminary there. So we don't really know how you know how they will manage to to To to just put that that provision s where because the provision was also one of the demands of the police end. Jammala is You know trying to show his support to the police force. What is this going to. Now move given the fact that everything that you've just talked about in the last few minutes suggests that There is a large mistrust with the police force and there is evidence to suggest it. Actually the you know the police force does have some serious problems and it's an it's endemic systemic and the freedom of expression issue which is such a crucial part of the french identity. Where does this. Where does the government now look to try and strike a balance to keep everyone calm. At least i don't know. Actually i don't know they will be able to keep everyone happy encounter because you know there were many protests last week and The police is putting high high pressure on the interim minister so there is no way he can satisfy the police institution and at the same time making sure that people are happy with a having the current sheet that they have their freedom of speech being being being preserved. So i think it's very difficult balance to keep an eye. At some point. There will have to make a choice. Required eli thank you very much. Indeed for joining us on monocle.

Airbus' Ambitious Hydrogen Plans
"I'm happy to welcome with me on the program senior editor, Guy Norris and tier to our France Bureau chief who as you surely know if you read ideation? Gregory is an expert in aerospace technology subjects to. This week, we are going to talk about three aircraft concepts that Abbas presented for the first time. They are very different from each other in many ways, but they do have one thing in common they are supposed to be powered by hydrogen. And Abbas Vision in the transformation of aviation into a greener more sustainable, future exciting ideas but lots of questions too. So let's take a step back I wonder if I can ask you to just walk us through the plans that Abbas. Presented this week. Sure So basically, there are three concept plaints. At the center of the city they called him supplies because none of them will actually be built but three directions that are going to be studied in depth. One of them is looks like turboprop aircraft to wing configuration. I think the maximum. Capacity would be around one hundred passengers. The other one. Sorry. The first one, I mentioned a because it would burn hydrogen in relatively conventional outside rented conventional. Engine turbines. The second concept plane is also conventional Tuban Wing country duration from be powered by two defense number props to defense money hydrogen. Again, capacity is between one, hundred, twenty, two, hundred passengers, and just like the first concept plane the shooting hydrogen attack is located at the rear of the fuselage and the third concept is definitely the most spectacular. It's a blended wing but. Again powered by defense. So often concepts contemplates both hundred ten. Engines but the big difference, the May feature of the sudden is the blend buddy consideration, which means you can much more optimize hide myrow dynamics, and you can also dispute passengers and fuel tanks. I, know much more efficient way in the in. So. Roughly speaking this, all three concepts that are is. Speaking about so we're we're kind of fifteen years right I mean they're talking about enter enter into service in twenty thirty five but already, they're making some very important technology choices you mentioned liquid hydrogen for instance can just walk Ciragan. You know what are the steps that are coming up in between now and twenty, thirty five so between now one, twenty, thirty, five, the and again, twenty thirty five is the plant date for entry to service our first main Maislin if she wishes twenty twenty-five by then they expect to have majored some technology bricks as they. Call them to choose from and they would launch a program in twenty, twenty, seven or twenty, twenty eight. So that would be a food program for the Industrial Program between or twenty degrees and would would be very, very informative for us to follow is the next five years they plan to do several demonstrations. So they will demonstrate that technology bricks such as hydrogen storage, for example, and one of the most demonstration projects is about hydrogen storage and distribution they were stopped on the ground, but they also plan some instructional on the sorry in the era in. which could be quite a spectacular and they plan quite. Surprised by this, they plan to start with gaseous hydrogen storage demonstration before moving to liquid, and as they seem to have made a choice ready for liquid hydrogen meet surprised by the fact, they are going to also test guess. So Guy. Abbas. Seems to be really enthusiastic about this and it's kind of came out of nowhere but it came a bit of as a surprise to me. That's enthusiasm isn't really shared by everyone in an industry particularly in the engine industry they're still seem to be quite some serious reservations about this. So can you tell us what what what you're hearing? Yeah Hi there. It's basically a very is a very interesting time because, of course, the engine manufacturers like the fray manufactures they're all facing this kind of cliff of how do we meet the sustainability targets in really thirty years seems like a long time but but in the aerospace business, it's really not They've got. So they've they've been approaching this idea of whether to adopt the new transformational approach. Mostly based on alternative fuels, which would be dropping into the existing kind of infrastructure, the existing propulsion designs and the existing tube and wing configurations that the framers of loved and developed and perfected for the past fifty years all nor so you can imagine that there is a bit of a shock going on here to how do we suddenly move all of that towards a hydrogen based ecosystem. Of course, the other thing is that they've saying, well, you know we have been that before we've studied this, we started in the nineteen fifties, for example, more based for military type applications again, in the seventy s during the fuel crisis when they the first global fuel crisis and again in the nineties when there was the first glimmers of the emerging environmental issues this time of course, it's different as you both said, you know the there is a driving force has never been there before, and of course, the the French government tying the. Incentive. Package really to sustainability is the big decision making sort of driver on this. So you know the fact that. There's much more urgent need now is is changing the game, but doesn't change the fact that there is seventy years of history of safety and certification and development behind a no operational cycle around kerosene people know how to handle it. They know how to certify it, and this is a whole new ballgame. So why would you know bus get buy in from the other industry participants if that wasn't possible for one reason or another over the past? Several decades well I mean one of the thunder, the reasons that time does move on and technology has improved. They're all ways of coping now as a couple of ways to look at it. One is from a big picture perspective. The big challenge that a lot of them see both in and out of aerospace is the fact that they feed stalking. The actual production of hydrogen has to be done in a sustainable way to make this entire equation balance
Tiffany Files Lawsuit Against LVMH To Enforce Merger
"Let's turn to the latest developments in the ongoing legal battle between the US jewelry giant Tiffany and French luxury group lvmh. Last November lvmh agreed to acquire Tiffany, but tiffany has since accused of trying to run down the clock in order to let the deal run out of time. So then now trying to fast track the process well, Dana Thomas is the author fashioned police, the price of I fashion and the future of clothes, and to say, she joins us once again from Paris good morning. Good Morning. So bring us up to date in a story that twists and turns an awful lot. Well. This is this is the third time in my career that lvmh's done this week it's become a big big the deal the takeover deals become a big news story. They did it with Gucci they did it with our they lost both of them, and now they're doing it with tiffany and we'll see what happens the latest news is yesterday. The Delaware Court of Chancery where because they'll tiffany is registered in the state of Delaware. In the United States. Has, set a digital hearing date for four day trial starting January fifth and they're gonNA. They're if they don't settle this beforehand, they're going to go to trial and tiffany is pushing for the trial November while Lvmh, wanted it in March or April. So the courts split the split the difference in set it for January this is important because it's right before the US regulatory approval for the sixteen point two, billion dollar acquisition expires on February third. This is the largest bid for a takeover that lvmh did and it's I think the largest ever in the in the luxury industry. She doesn't want to pay that much now and understandably so. Tiffany is down. Had A first-half operating loss of forty, five, million dollars a loss of forty five in the same time. Last year, it had earnings of three, hundred, forty, five, million. So they feel like, yeah, we made this bid last November before Kovic. Everything else hit and Tiffany was thriving and now it's not worth sixteen point two, billion dollars. We'd like to reevaluate that and Tiffany's like saying too bad for you. Well, neither seemed to be giving any leeway on this because toughen says that it it doesn't see what has to cut its prices. It's ready to go to court and LVMH's saying start rushing us because you know the reason why I'm trying to Russia's you don't want us to look at the way that you handle your books during cove it. Well, it's not even just handling the books. All the stores were closed out around the world and people still ordered online. Could you would you order a ending tiffany jewelry online? Have it delivered to your mailbox? I don't think so unless you really needed to get married and that was that but I think that Tiffany Tiffany is. Really pushing for the most important thing which is that you know if they if they go to court lvmh. Chairman. Bernard Arnault could be deposed in the case and asked if he pressured the French government to help give the French group and out is the with this deal because the French government is the ones who stepped in and said, you know we're not going to you can't do this so. The firm, you know originally said that they were dropping this because of a US trade dispute, which is you know. Not terribly clear. So are no what have to swear you know in the courthouse on a Bible or or not in the courthouse because it'll be digital and say no I didn't ask the government to given how well connected he is with the government and with. President. Matt Cole. I wonder and and I'm not the only one to wonder and obviously tiffany wonders, and so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Dana how is this going to play out given the fact I mean you mentioned the fact that Lvmh's attempts to by the likes of Gucci didn't work out. Right well, there's a couple of different scenarios. The first one is it tiffany gets. To close the deal at the original price. I, doubt that's going to happen because Bernardo is a really shrewd businessman and he does not overpay. The second one is that the deal is done at a lower prices previously agreed they get some mediators in there they work it out before you tiffany's a publicly traded company. This could really make their their stock collapsed to a point that you know they're really. Hurting thirties at you know Arno. Tries to go hostile takeover because it is a publicly traded company and starts buying tiffany on the public market at a reduced price and eventually has so much that he says, boom I'm owner of the company too bad for you.

Going on now, this is a deal which really took the luxury world by quite some surprise. It was a big big deal. There is no break-up feed has been agreed. So in theory, I could walk away without any costs, but it might hate the.

His time, but this one seems to have gone sour

Boeing: Critical 737 Max test flights begin
"We talk about the Boeing 7 37 Max. We're all well aware of the two fatal crashes in close proximity to each other in terms of timing. We know the plane's been grounded. And You know, despite heavy lobbying by Boeing and the airlines at one point, that plane is still grounded. And it will probably fly again. But it called into question so many things that go back into a culture of behavior with the FBI on the FBI. The FAA should be the F B I. In fact, the FBI is investigating. Excuse me. The FBI is investigating the FAA and the manufacturer on this Because of their close relationship. I mean, how can the regulator Regulated airline or a manufacturer. When They're actually being told by the airline of the manufacturer. What's right or wrong doesn't make any sense. And in this situation we have a situation where The plane. I think you'd agree with this Greg. The plane on its own is not an unsafe airplane, the plane on its own. It's you know, it's just another iteration of an existing future lives that goes back to 1969 actually earlier than that. Earlier that year earlier than that, But the real problem here is how do you certify and airplane And what process do you go through to put two basically. Ensure that there's transparency and that people can tell the truth. Correct. Correct, But you know there are a couple things here. One certifying an airplane is a very complex process. And it has gotten more complex as new generation airplanes come out, especially with all the new avionics and all the Elektronik that control airplanes today. You know, back when they were building D. C three's When you pull it pushed and pulled the yolk. You were moving a cable that moved the elevator. You know, you pushed on the rudder pedals, you'd move a cable. Now it's all computer controlled hydraulically boosted So you're just giving an input in ones and zeros to a computer. The computer that makes things happen, and it becomes a very complex process. The other thing is, is that Congress Gave the FAA the authority because the FAA didn't have the resource supposed both monetary and manpower to go to a delegated system that is You hire qualified experts who are working on behalf of the FAA. They go into the manufacturer. They are your designated representatives. They are technically an FAA representative, but they're being paid by the manufacturer. Now that's a that's A. That's a big whoops. That's a big whoops. Well, they always thought that that was a conflict of interest. But anything that a D, e, R or a D A. R that the designated engineering representative for Airworthiness representative does in the factory. It still has to be approved by The F A. A. The small aircraft director of the larger craft director Door or Washington, D. C. It's not self certifying, and that really was a confusing discussion for the last year and half. Going isn't self certified. They are doing what they need to do to meet the regulatory requirement. It was the cozy relationship is it was, um, um, characterized. That developed because there was a lot of not a lot of, you know, over the shoulder looking that disappeared over the years, But every But every manufacturer Airbus Embraer Bomb party They all used the same designated engineering process. Why? Because the United States government, the French government, the Canadian government does not have the manpower or the expertise. And is on one of the public hearing the congressional hearing. If Boeing were to be the manufacturer, and the FAA wanted to put people in that manufacturing facility that were actual FAA employees, they'd have to hire 10,000 experts and they'd have to increase their budget by a $1,000,000,000. That's taxpayer dollars. Exactly, But But you know what? When you think about it, the first lawsuit sometimes and a $1,000,000,000 after the fact. Look,

"Amongst the french political class about the way in which monetary union works as we see from the things macron says but it is not the beast if you like that was imagined safely constrained by the germans in in the early ninety six in that sense the less german it became on the drug the easier you is for other countries to find it more acceptable as say. I still don't think this question about how different it can be from. What the german model is without politically fracturing his tidy put politically to the test the place where there seems to be the greatest scepticism about the year and i was in eastern europe. Let's especially in public opinion surveys. There's very very little competence in it. As your fractures one way potentially fractious italy becomes part of this more eastern oriented and again sometimes called populist alliance but that includes places like poland and hungary. If originally this was about france and germany there was at least the possibility another new divisions in europe could be part of the battleground there. It leaves pulled east not west. I i think the general east west element to the internal difficulties european union has the river and that obviously also i has implications for the eu's external relations not least with russia whether it's clear disagreement between the eastern european member states and to to some extent france and germany. I think that if you're sitting in eastern europe a new look at what happened particularly actually in hungary during the financial crisis where there had been quite a lot of private debt basically run up in in euros on the european central bank basically wasn't interested in engaging with hungary's financial difficulties in any way in hungary ended up going to the i._m._f. Alone. I think he's going to be quite difficult to imagine any situation. Russian in the foreseeable future hungary and poland are going to be joining the era and i do think though as particularly hungary's case that destroys was built stop by what happened to hungary joined the financial crisis and that does pros problem for the european union as a whole because it is now clearly going to continue to be a multi-country union even with if and when britain leaves the european union and that in some sense means that kohl's roles vision of as a symbol of the united europe con actually be realized now the position of italy in this is is complicated obviously because on the one hundred was a founder member of the european economic community the one government back in eighty seven who initially supported the french government with the italians mystery in some sense why that they thought the italy could live under a monetary union but that was sort of french-italian <unk> access against what they saw as german monetary hegemony within the community on that italy's not been able to maintain an alliance is with france over monetary union questions in recent years particularly under macron's presidency you can see on made some attempt to ally with the southern european governments when he came into power in two thousand twelve not twenty effect so where does that leave italy italy looks like it's got people in the government who on kind of like flirting with alternative ideas but they clearly got no strategy about how to realize them or how to take italy out the era so i still think that's quite difficult for italy to form alliances with poland and hungary in particular the impossible question to finish finish. There is a recession coming always recession coming at some point. There's going to be more pressure on this system. It leaves one potential flashpoint. Do you have have a sense of what the others might be a where the ultimate flashpoint might be of it was grease a few years ago. It's unlikely to be greece again. I think the flashpoints germany because because i think that there was going to be very considerable pressure when that recession comes to go back to quantitative easing and dragging was able to do that i think think make that move under quite specific set of circumstances including that there were certain uses to germany will particularly the german finance minister so i moved on schobul even though it was critical of q._a..

I'm sure there's enough revenue to go around. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to get something out of it. But, but to me, this doesn't strike me from at least, certainly for Facebook's point of view as either a pl- economic play. Like we're gonna make a lot of money on this. Although they might have a hand in every transaction going forward. That's Amazon's plan. Right. And I don't think this is a privacy thing. I think that's missing the poll point of this. If you say all Facebook's just doing this, so they can get more information about all transactions. I think this is a power play. I think this is Facebook saying who needs a government who needs banks. Imagine being paranoid Davinder. No, I think I think that's probably a good way to look at it. It's to me, it's a little less scary than something like the portal that they, you know, they're, and I should point I have I have two of them, which because. Well, I thought I need to talk to the other one. It makes us which is good tech. But probably came at the wrong time for them. Whereas this like, yeah, it does seem like a power. It does seem like how can we be a global superpower? What if we what if we didn't need banks? What if we could just manage our own ecosystem, you know, it's preparing us for the world of the future, where we're all living in VR, and just buying stuff digitally. He'll make sense. Yeah. And I guess I'm not the only one is paranoid, because the French government has already said, we're investigating and Facebook is going to have to go to congress next month to explain explain yourself Facebook, because there's some, I think reasonable concern in government about what is Facebook up to. So maybe I'm not completely paranoid. Although lately, getting getting grilled by congress is just kind of table stakes for anybody who wants to play this game. Yeah, I thought it was interesting on that the congress investigation articles that I've been reading that it's both. It's a sort of a bipartisan suspicion of this plan, and you can you can easily see what, what in what sort of stakes that each side is thinking about one side's thinking about the sort of social and data privacy. Implications on one side is thinking about, but banks. Stepping in and taking over banks. So it, it is interesting that it is a bipartisan concern. That's, that's a the expressed here if you think about banks, not just central banks national bags but just Bank commercial banks that really are an important constituency to congress. I would imagine. They spend a lot of money on congress. Congress has a certain sense of responsibility to banks, and I'm sure that's what some of this is. And and, and honestly. I, I some so torn about this because as you probably gathered, I'm not a fan of Facebook, but at the same time anything that dissenter mediates, especially banks. I think that's a good thing. So I don't know what we're gonna come down on this one. Well, it's so easy to, to sort of fast forward a few years and imagine that, you know, the kind of investigation that's been going on over the last couple of years about the Russian involvement in the two thousand sixteen presidential election than the campaigns. It's so easy to imagine a couple years down the road, this whole obfuscation that happens as a result of this all happening through Swiss Bank. And with a, you know, there's some data trail, of course. But yes rail instead of subpoenaing Deutsche Bank. Who are you going to subpoena, if it's Lieber coin? Yeah. That is a real concern..

But the French government owns any churches on in their country made after a certain point. Our four before certain point, excuse me. And they're such their secular country as we all know. And so but put a Sherwin bend and make sure that Islam gets put up on a pedestal. But that's another point the French government is secular and note, Notre Dom gets forty thousand thirty forty thousand visits a day, and they don't put the money. They should. And Catholics in America have been asked before all this to to contribute money to Notre Dom to which I'd say, no. But here it is. And it's thong decades neglect. The thing was absolutely from the Wall Street Journal. Just absolutely a joke and how poorly maintained it was.

Let's pretend we're gonna run Boorda battleship old Iowa class battleship, and I gotta shit my targets, I gotta really charters correctly. I don't wanna be shooting at a secondary or tertiary charter on his own a shoot out something that I think is the primary target. Let me explain. Yes.

Yes, we got they they are owned the politicians in this state are owned by Google Disney. Apple I mean, I look at the house of representatives speaker house, the speaker of the house of representatives Nancy Pelosi flying on corporate jets go into their retreat.

We've got them in in your state of Texas. Arizona New Mexico, southern New Mexico. Governor today called out the cops on that on the bed.

They're hiring the H one Bs. They call us racist. When we want to build a wall while they're building walls around their their palatial mansions like Nancy Pelosi, and what's happened.

They bought that. The government is organizing to consult the people over a period of several weeks is so what's the pun is much. Sounds like random late became granny that we don't care. All right.

But when I get it now, I now understand contact, right? Yeah. So so the idea here being that while the government is doing its own events to to to extend the debate and have discussion about how France should work. This was an effort to kind of bring in younger folks, YouTube creators, what what did this end up being? Yeah, I think what was noteworthy in this. It was a eleven hours of debate. With members of the actual cabinet of the government, not the president himself. But the prime minister also took part in some of it. And the interesting part was that there were a lot of actual content creators from YouTube aimed at young people. Some political some not political at all there were a twitch dreamers, and you know, citizens students high school students cetera et cetera. And so this is this is really an effort from the from what I understand from those twitch YouTube channel producers to get the youth interested in the debate about the future of the country. Now, whether or not it was an exercise in in PR for the government, which some people have said, I think the initiative is interesting to to go where the young people are so on a scale of from Hello fellow teenagers to hey, that's cool. This fall. I think the the format and the form was very cool. And I will let the substance of it to the appreciation of each person who will probably appreciate the differently depending on their political leanings. I think the format works surprising.
