"Www dot eu speared dot dot org in in so final question for our interview today gonna start with the original and that is what are some of the positive things that you could see coming out of the pandemic to support your work there and the the overall kind of creative economy. If you own brooklyn oakland i would say it's definitely. I think this has been the case for out. Dare say most people ever since cove. It's been a thing it's really reminded people that you can't take yourself your safety or health for granted you really gotta be serious about it. Sensation being organized clean everything. And that's also been the case for a lot of our youth artists who may be around other houston community and everybody doesn't have the same safety health and hygiene standards that you might have so with that being said you have to be that much more. Careful when you're doing artwork collaborative work in general especially our work around people in closed quarters. So i think it would help us in that sense to just. It's helped us in that since just remind us you have to be safe. You have to be on your ps and qs and it will help us get our work done and i think it also help us be more comfortable when doing it and sally. What are you feel are some of the positive things sticking commended the pandemic to support the use spirits art work. Well i think one of the things that we're all very excited about is that we've really built a lot of momentum through constructing the tiny house village. I think all the volunteers were very revved up by their accomplishment they youth and volunteers so we're actually pursuing two or even as many as three more villages and working really hard in our weekly meetings to talk about next steps for this hundred homes for homeless youth campaign. So i think in our case. I feel like we. We're coming out of the pandemic with this momentum and excitement about the possibility of tiny house villages as a solution to the challenges of homelessness. And for what they offer youth that are that really need of affordable. Housing thank you all right. Is there anything that we that. We haven't covered that. You want cover any special projects that you're raising funds for sally or anything that you're working on retinal. We'll i would like to add one more thing onto to your previous question about ways in which we can benefit posts a pandemic during it right now. I think another benefit is for a number of people that have helped us with the tiny house. Parliament village project or just with wia say in however away. I believe that a lot of them were were driven out to help us because of them. Being anxious to get out from being locked in the house from people would just fell anxious to get out and do something productive instead of being in the house so often everyday quarantining or just being safe. So i think it's. It's driven more collaboration in more assistance to whatever we need assistance in collaboration with yeah i really agree with that in. Just wanna just even elaborate on that. Which is that. I think that one of the most amazing things about our project is that when we this project was going on during the trump administration and andrew kovic and reggie was getting at it was really a means of people really expressing hope and kind of keeping hope alive at a time when they were feeling so much despair.

"I don't think anybody would have predicted the good friday agreement in northern ireland. I don't think anybody predicted the brexit might come close to breaking good friday agreement. Either now we knew there was a chance you might have missed what rasheed meant by that but we were also pretty sure we'd be explaining it today so we'll let it slide. We have made a good. Many episodes about brexit onto explained ones about the economy ones about the arguments for and against one was actually about mexico and one was about how the move could affect the fragile peace that the good friday agreement brought to northern ireland but now brexit is really happening and president biden just visited the uk and did some photo ops with prime minister. Boris johnson velika. Good time to check in and see how everything's going out there. I ate stomach ache here. I'm a staff writer at the atlantic. I'm sitting off the coast of cornwall in a place. Coal the scilly isles. i About ten feet from my baby. Who's just waking up as we speak tom. We're back again today. To talk about brexit because brexit is of course still happening why does a brexit take so long what because it brexit is not an event is is a process. It's a process of disentangling a country from an organization. It has belonged to for forty years. That's forty years of law and court decisions and you know jurisprudence and all of these things. This is deep integration into a into a sort of grand project debbie cameron. The former prime minister said warmth the strongest reasons for not leaving the european union was that it would take years of just to do this thing. There's no saving from leaving the eu. There's a cost and my message is very clear what you don't risk i love. The fact is that decision was taken in two thousand sixteen and with three four five years into it. I was still debating this thing so in in some senses he was right but we're also moving on in other ways just yesterday actually the uk. Australia announced that they had made the initial agreement on a trade deal stadium. Prime minister scott morrison strode into down the street this morning to make history the first nation to strike a post brexit trade deal with the uk. Completely from scratch on. This is something. That boris johnson was said was these. These trade deals are the big prize. Tim times we. Can you give us vegemite. we give you. I think it is a good thing. Boris johnson is coming this on. He is starting to sort of deliver what he would see as the positive sides of brexit and over time you just diverging slowly from the european union making it very hard to ever go back. And this is boris johnson's legacy and this is why he is so committed to it. Because it's the thing that is going to define who he is and what. He stood for his prime minister. We will be more dynamic. A broader more focused on delivering frost citizens when we last asked you about brexit tom in the summer of two thousand. Nineteen you left us. Sort of a cliffhanger you said. We just don't know whether boris is going to take britain out without a deal which would be revolutionary or he will somehow managed to succeed with theresa may have failed. And take you out with a deal. What ended up happening just to catch people up. Boris johnson did the thing that very few people thought he he would be able to. He did a deal with european union stripping out controversial element of the trade deal which should stop trees. A may being able to pass the thing through the house of parliament but it was quite a sneaky way. That boris johnson did he changed the name of something but it didn't really changing. Its four but it was enough to get it through the house of commons houses parliament. We've taken back control of those and artist. Andy we take him back and throw every jot and tittle so what has changed so far. Can you give us an idea not a lot right now. The big difference really is that britain has got control of its own immigration system so like the us or canada australia which have their own immigration systems. Britain now has its own whereas when it was inside the european union it was a collective immigration policy within europe. So anybody from the european union could move to anybody else's country just like they were a state in the. Us britain has left that system and now it is treated treating citizens from the european union like citizens from any other country in the world. So they're treated no differently to whether they are. Australians are americans and the consequence of that is britain no longer has closer relations trading relationship with the european union so trade between the european union and britain is hard as a checks on goods happen where they didn't use to happen so trade flows have slowed down. Because it's just harder to do more expensive for business to do it. The mouth of the eurotunnel. In kent customs expert stephen cock says problems on the way out in problems on the win. We have a situation where border forces car park is full. The roads are heavily. Congested turning lorries back now exports grinding to a halt of them. Britain is taking control of something but the cost is there is more friction in the system. It's harder let's talk about something else. Concrete in january of twenty twenty. We made an episode not with you titled the invisible border in which are former reporter. No i'm hassenfeld Covered the story of the potential for brexit to throw northern ireland. Back into a state of acrimony. We have a very delicate pace hair northern ireland. Anything could just put it over the edge. How has this move. Affected the tensions there. They has affected the tensions in northern ireland. It's an incredibly complicated story. Washington the uk plus the european union. Have one thing we absolutely all want to do. That is to uphold the.

"The Flyers. 43 Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quick take power by more than 2700, journalists and analysts more than 100 20 countries. Michael Barr. And this is Bloomberg. Nathan are Michael. Thank you. It is 5 19 on Wall Street live from the Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studios. This is Bloomberg. Daybreak, with so much going on in Washington, D C over and above the interparty squabbling the GOP that Michael just mentioned. We're very pleased to be joined this morning. By Greg Value Chief U. S policy strategist at A GF investments Want to Keep the conversation Greg on policy to start if we can Beginning with stimulus. The House has passed a budget resolution. It looks like the Senate is poised to do the same today. So is this full steam ahead for President Biden's $1.9 trillion proposal. Absolutely, Michael. Good morning. I think that the it's like a locomotive that cannot be stopped. The only issue is Will Biden make a few concessions and get the price tag down to 1415 trillion, or will he get something close to his 1.9? It's it's either or it certainly is not going to be the Republican proposal of 618 billion. Yeah, I wanted to ask about that $618 billion proposal because we were talking about it just a couple of days ago, and it now seems like it's pretty much fallen by the way side is that is that just been a nonstarter? A Tous point? Yeah, I think so, Nathan. I mean, the mantra here in Washington is go Big. That's the mantra from Yellen, Powell. Biden all the Democrats, and I think the Republicans won't support a huge bill, but they're not gonna win. Well, where do you see the potential for some wiggle room Because we did hear from President Biden yesterday. He says he expects to get some Republicans support. Where do you see the possibility for support here? Two areas number one. I'm not sure that a hike in the minimum wage would be Germaine to this bill under the budget reconciliation process, which in English means that the House parliament Terry in the Senate parliamentarian may say no, you can't include minimum wage. Secondly, I think that the eligibility of Getting big big checks might be lowered people couples making up to 150,000 would get something now. I think that's too much. I think that will go down. When you see this passing. Does it happen quickly? Well, they've got to write a bill and that's always a torturously process. So I would say the real deadline is early March because unemployment benefits expire in the middle of March, so We're probably a month away before we get this signed into a lot. All right. Let's turn to the retail stock frenzy because there's starting to be much more attention on that in Washington, particularly with Treasury Secretary Yellin Meeting with regulators today. What do you expect to come out of that? Well, there was certainly be a call for more action by the SEC. The Securities and Exchange Commission on I think that you'll get a promise of investigations into alleged collusion there, some kind of organized effort to move stocks. But, you know, the irony is that It has not affected the market's much in the last few days. Usually when Washington starts to hold hearings. That means the crisis has passed. Yeah, okay. What kind of regulation if any, could come out of this? Yeah, I could see a much more vigorous reporting system. I could see. Ah, lot more transparency here, but in terms of new regulations or legislation, we're a long way away unless this thing really explodes again, and it looks like ah, lot of the speculators and getting burned right now. Do you see the current Treasury secretary Yellen, taking a completely different approach to how she responds to Wall Street, compared TOC Secretary Mnuchin and the Trump Administration. Well, I certainly see it from Gary against her will be the head of the SEC. He's a tough Progressive who I think will be a little tougher on Wall Street. I think for Janet Yellen. She knows so many people in the markets. I think if they would tell her if things were going overboard, so I don't view her as a big problem. Wall Street Lesser Main Street Lesser But Gessler is going to be pretty tough. Regulator, you know, last minute here, Greg, What do you make of the squabble within the GOP between Liz Cheney and Marjorie Taylor? Grain? Well, it's quite a story, and it all leads up to 2022 2024. Kevin McCarthy added. Impossible. Cast out. I'm not sure he handled it all that well. A green in private apologized. I thought that was really important. I think, though Liz Cheney is going to be a victim. I think she's headed for a loss in 2022 in her Wyoming primary. All right. We'll have to leave it there for now. But Greg always great talking with you on everything that's happening in Washington, D. C. I'm sure we're going to have much more conversation in the weeks and months to come. Great value is chief U. S policy strategist at A GF investments with us this morning and taking a look at the markets modest gains. Slight gains. I think it would be safe to say at this point for S and P futures. They're only up three points right now about 1/10 percent. Dow futures little change They're up 10 points. NASDAQ futures higher by 42 points.

Of course they took over. They said we're in charge and so here is them saying they're in charge. Okay here's what it sounded like and of course there's a translator on here guys. This is not a they weren't. They didn't make an announcement in english to their non speaking country. But here's a a translator. On her missing you've got the nonmusical refusing to settle voter lists fraud failing to take actions not falling the request to postpone lower house and upper house. Parliament sessions. there is a need to carry along with the plan. According to the two thousand eight constitution which talks about acts or attempts to take over the sovereignty of the union by wrongful forcible means that can lead to disintegration of national solidarity by tall. The state of emergency is in effect nationwide and the duration of the state of emergency is set to one year starting from this date. The order is announced in line with the two thousand eight constitution article. Four seventeen okay. And so There's a small problem with these kind of things though. And so i mean for those who want that to happen here. There is a little bit of problem with that and that is well. We can sit and say well. If somebody's in the white house illegitimately we can use the military to get them out. What if you got the military in their legitimately who gets them out right. And that's what happened. last time. The military took control in myanmar. Is you know there's a the idea that it's supposed to be just a one year program here right well. Maybe miniatures said that they will take judge for a year. This absolutely no reason to believe that's the case. The last time they took john in nineteen sixty two they were in power basically until twenty ten fifty years of independence history so they are very much accustomed to holding power in burma and they find it. Difficult to live in a house with they democratically elected government. Which has been essentially a run the country since two thousand fifteen although it's the military still controlling many of the ministers indeed but as you said that there was this uneasy coexistence between the democratically elected parties and the military's representatives. We aren't out from onsang. Su cheese party their desire to introduce further reforms. Which rather makes one thing that this is what we are seeing in myanmar on mars direct result of that..

"Spectacle in the impeachment inquiry trump loyal Republicans stormed a congressional session with investigators and forced it to a standstill for much of the day that came after Tuesday's testimony check critical new light on the president's actions toward Ukraine White House correspondent you Michelle sender begins our coverage we demand the open proceedings the American people deserve nothing less on Capitol Hill more than thirty house Republicans disrupted a closed door deposition with the top ten Akon official these days just sort of sit in in the highly secured room they also demanded the impeachment inquiry hearings be open to the public North Carolina congressman Greg Murphy we have secret hearings that are going on that we as the elected members of the United States Congress four hundred and thirty five members are not privy to that is simply not fair the scheduled witness was Laura Cooper who oversees Ukraine policy at the Pentagon she was expected to discuss the four hundred million dollars in military aid for Ukraine the president trump temporarily blocked the kids brought cellphones into the facility were phones are not allowed Cooper's testimony was delayed for hours one Democrat in the room called it is done but the tactics are in an effort to delay the inevitable they've instructed the hearing effort to intimidate a witness they brought in electronics into a secure room we can't even review the transcripts it was the latest escalation in a war of words over process Democrats so far only members of the intelligence of foreign affairs of oversight committees have heard the interviews and seen the transcripts Republicans insist that's unfair Democrats say it's not unusual to hold sensitive investigations behind closed doors transposons when the Dow Deming's a Florida sits on the house intelligence committee I guess when you're desperate you go back to complain about the process meanwhile Democrats set a new letter to the state department demanding emails related to the July twenty fifth call between president trump and Ukrainian presence Lynskey they also want any electronic communications between witnesses and the impeachment inquiry plus diplomatic cables related to freezing military aid and memos to document any efforts to have Ukraine open investigations that would politically benefit president trump all of this one day after the stunning testimony acting Ukraine ambassador bill Taylor he told lawmakers that president trump withheld the military aid an effort to make Ukraine investigate former vice president Joe Biden and a son hunter house investigators had planned to hear from other witnesses tomorrow and Friday but those plans will be delayed by memorial events for the late congressman Elijah Cummings animation joins me now so you may wish tell us about more about this storming of the what was supposed to be a closed briefing of close interrogation the significance of it and how are the other Democrats and Republicans reacting what Democrats say that this is really a political stunt by Republicans who are angry about the process and you really only want to focus on the process because they don't want to answer questions about president trump's actual actions as it relates to Ukraine Republicans they'll have a completely different view of this they say that this is really about Democrats not having a lack of transparency or having a lack of transparency they say that they're not really allowing all members of Congress to partake in its impeachment inquiry and as a result that's a wrong tonight Republicans are really celebrating this they think that it was a great thing that they are and did this deposition and had this the Pentagon official waiting for hours to testify they also say that this is really proving a point that Republicans need to continue to speak out against what they see as an unfair process Democrats on the other hand are really up in arms and see that Republicans really violated some critical rules of the house first they say that the house parliament carrying ruled that these Republicans who up ended this testimony was actually they were actually in violation of the house deposition roles representative Bennie Thompson who is the chair of the homeland security committee he sent a letter to the house sergeant of arms who said that the in in he was basically saying that the house sergeant of arms needs to take actions against these Republicans add to that that house Democrats are now pointing to words by former congressman Trey Gowdy who once said that the deposition behind closed doors is a really good thing to do because it gets more information out there they're now saying that Trey Gowdy as words should hold still Trey Gowdy also one said that rule should be followed and that there should be no exceptions made Democrats are also put into those words and saying that Republicans should be listening to the words of Trey Gowdy so you measure completely separate thing I happen today if two of president a charge of president trump's attorney Rudy guiliani two of his associates were in court today they were accused of illegal campaign contributions there pleading not guilty but one of them spoke about having some of the evidence covered by executive privilege now that obviously refers to the president what is the White House saying and and how do they see the significance of this well this could be a really problematic for president trump when you have an associate of Rudy Giuliani bringing up executive privilege as it relates to a campaign violation can refinance violation case here the the lawyer for left part off with an associate of Rudy Giuliani said that his client never actually worked for president trump but then he did work for Rudy guiliani and did actually employment times as his own personal training and as a result there could be executive privilege is there the attorney for left partner also said that this is being brought up because a former attorney for president trump John Dowd told left part off that he should be talking about issues of executive privilege on all of this is important because Rudy guiliani the president's personal attorney he's someone who is really emerged as a central figure in this impeachment inquiry and as a result Rudy guiliani's work could be very much connected to president trump and that and that could mean that he's very connected to these associates but we'll have to see how the White House responds I've put out emails and calls to the White House they're not talking like this at this point but it is something that we're going to definitely have to watch and another separate thing that happened today you miss this is in a federal appeals court in this has to do with the lawsuit against president trump to force him to turn over his tax returns in the course of this proceeding the president's lawyer it talked about immunity that the president enjoys against any criminal prosecution any sort of criminal accusation which could be pretty broad so what it what is our understanding of what this is all about and what are the implications this cases involving a subpoena from New York prosecutors for five for president trump's financial records they're seeking them as part of an investigation into hush money payments that were possibly paid to stormy Daniels and other women who allegedly had affairs with president trump the president's lawyers are saying that the president had temporary immunity because he's president of the United States all of this happen all this is happening as the president's words from January twenty six so twenty sixteen are coming back let's listen to what the president had to say when he was then candidate trump my people are so smart and you know what else they say about my people the polls they say I have the most loyal people did you ever see that where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters okay it's like a crowd of now those comments are critically important to this case because the judge and the president's attorneys had a back and forth and exchange about this here's what that exchange had to say here's what that exchange was about today what's your view on on the the Fifth Avenue example local authorities couldn't investigate they couldn't do anything about it I I think of one a president is removed from office bill look any local authority this is not a permanent immunity well talk about while in office yeah there's the hypo nothing could be done that's your position that is correct that is correct some critics of the president said this is really a stunning argument to make and they say that this idea of temporary presidential immunity is just not actually part of the law the president's attorneys though are really pushing back so we'll have to see how this happens and how this ends up in the this appeals court but the judge seemed to really want to push the lawyers on this issue of the president's shooting someone and being able to get away with it at least while he was in office well it is a stunning to even be thinking in the hypothetical a sense about the president's shooting someone but there you go yeah Michelle sender thank you very much our other lead story tonight.

"The welcome back. You're listening to the briefing monocle twenty four. I am Marcus hip time now to take a more in depth. Look at some of the other stories on the global. Oh News Agenda today I'm joined by Mary Descenza Ski who writes for Tussle such as the independent and The Guardian and Stephanie Bolts in UK and Ireland correspondent respondent four developed. Welcome both do the tram today. The Supreme Court has begun considering whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson Spro Gang King of parliament was unlawful possession. We'll take a number of days to hear all sides but Stephanie Bolts in just come from the court itself Stephanie. What can you tell us so far. Whether hearing started this morning so there is a it's a it's a very early stage. What was interesting was more. It was happening outside it. So the Supreme Court is situated just opposite the house parliament's in the heart of Westminster and there was a lot of protesters in front the court and the protests were split as the country so there were one half of the protesters saying we need these courts to defend democracy call parliament back so parliament couldn't do their work and scrutinize brexit and there were the other ones who was saying actually what does are doing is trying to undermine democracy because they want to to to be to our brexit vote so anyway you go in this country. It's split this court. Case is being follows around the World Stephanie. What what does he mean for the way Britain is being viewed international. Well I think there is of course the big big big big question of if the courts decide and we do not know any way what way the court will decide whether whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson has lied to the Queen and if that would be the result of the hearing at the Supreme Court if he would have to resign nine so this is a major political and therefore so constitutional question on crisis that this country would fall into the REX's cut crisis bad enough so that will be just another crisis on top of it. I know you follow international presence. Well obviously rush press for example. How how is this being viewed internationally well. I don't get the impression that it's reflecting very well on the state of British politics the UK was already getting a very bad press internationally generally because of the mass over brexit. I think it was less. The fact that the opinion was polarized than the fact ah the the British really weren't getting their act together and the thing is that as seen from abroad before all this I think the UK had a certain reputation if not for doing things in sort of very orderly way for getting things done under the system allowed things to be to be be done because it was quite flexible compared with other countries with written constitutions solutions and very set ways of doing things the idea was the U. K. was relatively flexible and so it could it could get around things that other countries couldn't necessarily get around now. This has been completely exploded and the result is that I think we're being regarded. If I see the mood as a as going from one of disbelief at the start after the referendum vote through a degree of anger that the British weren't getting getting their act together now to almost writing us off dismissively when they're not laughing at US Boris Johnson on his government have been testing testing the limits of law. Do you think marry there is still something positive and all this. Do you think prison can learn something from all these there. The positive aspects of us in the future rules are going to be hopefully clearer well. I think this already quite a lot of pressure in certain quarters four having a complete eight rethink of the non written constitution of maybe having some sort of constitutional assembly and considering putting things down in black and white like of course most countries have but I think one of the biggest changes which is really demanded from all this is less to do with that than to do with our electoral system because at the moment we have we have complete conflict between the party system which isn't reflecting opinion in the country trey at large but it seems to me that any pressure is coming from the towards the possibility of written constitution rather than coming for or an overhaul of the electoral system to make it more representative well. We'll be definitely following that story over the coming days but meanwhile Boris Johnson undertook aortic believe belise equally humiliating trips to Luxembourg yesterday he's arrival was met with anti brexit protesters and Kuhlman as it in Johnston shying dying away from a podium speech alongside Luxembourg Prime Minister Zowie battle. Here is some of what Bethel had to say on the typical. The people need to know what is going to happen to them. In six weeks time they need clarity. They need certainty and they need stability. You you can't hold the future hostage for party. Political gains so now it's it's on Mister Johnson he holds the future all UK citizens and every use it it isn't leaving the UK has it's his responsibility your people our people count on you but the clock is ticking. Use Your time wisely. Have you seen anything like this before Stephanie. It's been quite extraordinary but I must say that might surprise you. I think what the Luxembourg Luxembourg prime minister did was absolutely unacceptable. He should not have done that. Boris Johnson was in in in Berlin August visiting. I'm GonNa Michael. I happen to be a covering this visit. I was in the chancellery they were also protesters outside and the press conference inside and I don't think it was a very clever idea in the name of the EU twenty-seven because in that moment the Luxembourg prime minister is representing the whole of the EU twenty seven to embarrass the British Prime Minister and put him in such an awkward situation. I'm an I'm not I don't know I mean this is something about Luxembourg and the Luxembourg politicians that are quite good at doing doing this kind of stunts. I think that was a mistake. It was not necessarily in dozen help you agree. I actually do tend to agree I. I would say his as a sort of footnote. How difficult should it be to mess up a trip to Luxembourg of a few hours. I mean really you know. I thought that that shouldn't happen. I also think maybe the British were were in part responsible less for Boris Johnson not showing up and and I'm giving the giving the podium entirely to his Luxembourg counterpart but the way diplomacy is supposed to work is supposed to ensure that these sort of things do not happen and so the whole thing should have been planned and fixed in advance want to avoid any sort of pitfalls. I also think that the the way the Luxembourg Prime Minister Mr spoke I don't think it reflected terribly well on him because you sensed a feeling of anger and a sense that he was not completely in control of what he was saying that he allowed. You didn't seem to me that this was staged anger. It seemed to me me that he was speaking off the cuff in a way that really didn't reflect very well on him personally or on his office and I don't think I'm speaking there is an defender of Boris Johnson Johnson. it just didn't sound like the way somebody in that sort of and I I happen to have been several times to this office. The Prime Minister's Office in Luxembourg and have interviewed Jonker honky younger several times. It is very very small place. I mean it's literally walk into the door of the prime minister's office and there are a couple of meters and then you are already on the pavement so so they knew what they were into when they set up the the the microphones that Boris Johnson he wouldn't have had a chance to be heard. Luxembourg's Zocalo will indeed didn't hold back at the same time in international relations in international diplomacy. Is it still good to sometimes just say thanks US various as they are well. I'm I'm actually quite a fan of doing that but I think you have to. You have to sit were everybody has to play by the same rules. We've now got very use to the way donald trump behaves. I think the rest of the world is actually responding and dealing with trump rather better now then did when he first came to office. I also think there's being maybe partly the result of There's been quite a freeing up of diplomatic language and diplomatic communications nations including through Social Media but I think it depends on people recognizing what the rules are. I think that's one of the problems yesterday and also also you have to have in mind he in that very moment spoke for the U. Twenty seven because this is the EU twenty-seven negotiating with Britain who gave him the Authority to represent the you twenty seven Germany Austria Greece in this kind of way. I think this is absolutely unacceptable. Let's move to Germany where rising political hopeful jens spawned one of the country CD. You Conservative politicians taped. Perhaps one day succeed. Angela Merkel's hasn't been mincing his words about the sponsored in recent interview for politico that instead of just we should do eat speeches it should be we are doing it spawned. Panis advocating less describing problems more solving problems Stephanie. If I may start with you who is yen spun and does anyone in Germany agree with him. UN SPAN is one of the rising stars in the city you so in lamarcus party he ran last. December for following following Angela Merkel in the head of the Party so I'm GonNa America has resigned as head of the CPU he will resign if the next regularly lectures in twenty twenty one and she will run then resigned will not run again to be Chancellor of Germany. He is a very interesting very effective. Minister is nominated for health. Both he belongs to the conservative wing of the Party and that's why he's quite successful with the basis space of the party because the automatically is accused of having let the deal too much into the centre ground politics. He's also interesting because he's openly gay so on the one hand openly openly gay but at the same time standing up for very conservative values of the city you but he when he ran in Hamburg last year for the leader leader of the top position in the he became third and very low turn a very low number codes so he is rising star but I think he's still quite a bit away from getting the top job Mary what do you think of criticism off the EU that we should be hearing more. We are doing it speech. Just instead of we we should do eat speeches well. It's quite difficult for me to judge whether the how far this was frontline front-line politicking because I rather suspect that he would not be saying that if as certain Stephanie said he didn't have his eye eventually on the top job job this sounded to me as though it was coming from somebody who saw himself as a future leader of Germany a future big player in the European Union otherwise why say that and I suppose that that that also explains why I'm slightly critical of it because it's very easy to say it up but he's not in a position to make that happen either now or in the next couple of years is is a question about the way the European Union communicate cates communicates at the same time. Obviously there are successes. People people may not be aware of them because Brussels destroying is struggling to explain. What's happening over there. Do you think people should be kept more up-to-date actually happening. In Brussels daily basis I think in Germany if you want to you can be up-to-date very much about what is happening in Brussels because there's there are more than one hundred fifty accredited journalists in Brussels. There's a lot of coverage I think this this this code by Jens spahn is targeted at something else is targeted as a at a frustration and anger among CD. Oh voters that Angela Merkel only managed in her fourteen fourteen years as Chancellor Chancellor European problems and it's an interesting one I think because it is saying that Germany should take more of a leading role in Europe not being reactive the active but we being active and that's that's Germans a real cultural shift because Jimi never wants to be a leader and now city you high-ranking drinking. CD You put additional saying we should become more of a leadership nation and that's that's an interesting one and let's continue to Russia. Most go has been downplaying on playing an explosion that took place this week in the area of course oval in Siberia. The blast caused a fire covering thirty square meters and it injured one person but it's in the news because it didn't just happen anywhere. Ito Kurt at the stakes research center of Virology and biotechnology usually known as Viktoria saw. This is a site that whole one of the only two remaining sample soft burst mall pox virus and diseases such as a bona to authorities take have denied her best any bio hazardous material was released as a result of this blast merry Christmas water these vectors icies and should should we be concerned well as I think best at the news reports pointed out it's one of the biggest one of the most important and in principle inspir- one of the most secure laboratory centers in Russia and like those sort of defense establishments in Russia Russia It's quite a long way from other places you know. Russia's got a lot of space and so it tends to places like this outside big centers this particular one is in the region of Novosibirsk which is the sort of central Siberia. I wonder I wonder though at the same time whether you know it's so easy to fix on things that happen at almost anywhere in Russia Russia and put the worst possible gloss on them so you understand why people will say well people will find it hard to trust the Russian authorities when when they say well actually this was a gas explosion in a part of the complex that was being that was being renovated. gas explosions explosions happen. We've seen that we've seen the moreover everywhere all the time especially in winter and especially when repairs are being done they said it wasn't imparted the complex holds the the the the the sensitive technology the viruses and of course the if that was being said by other people in other countries then you might tend to give it more credibility but at the same time regarding some recent headlines we have heard a few cases of hazardous materials being at the center explosive incidents in Russia early this year sailors were killed. A nuclear powered submarine suffered an explosion and soon after that an arm Saddam holding fifty five thousand artillery artillery shells went up in smoke. Do you see a pattern well..

If I see the mood as a as going from one of disbelief at the start after the referendum vote through a degree of anger that the British weren't getting getting their act together now to almost writing us off dismissively when they're not laughing at US Boris Johnson on his government have been testing testing the limits of law. Do you think marry there is still something positive and all this. Do you think prison can learn something from all these there. The positive aspects of us in the future rules are going to be hopefully clearer well. I think this already quite a lot of pressure in certain quarters four having a complete eight rethink of the non written constitution of maybe having some sort of constitutional assembly and considering putting things down in black and white like of course most countries have but I think one of the biggest changes which is really demanded from all this is less to do with that than to do with our electoral system because at the moment we have we have complete conflict between the party system which isn't reflecting opinion in the country trey at large but it seems to me that any pressure is coming from the towards the possibility of written constitution rather than coming for or an overhaul of the electoral system to make it more representative well. We'll be definitely following that story over the coming days but meanwhile Boris Johnson undertook aortic believe belise equally humiliating trips to Luxembourg yesterday he's arrival was met with anti brexit protesters and Kuhlman as it in Johnston shying dying away from a podium speech alongside Luxembourg Prime Minister Zowie battle. Here is some of what Bethel had to say on the typical. The people need to know what is going to happen to them. In six weeks time they need clarity. They need certainty and they need stability. You you can't hold the future hostage for party. Political gains so now it's it's on Mister Johnson he holds the future all UK citizens and every use it it isn't leaving the UK has it's his responsibility your people our people count on you but the clock is ticking. Use Your time wisely.

"And so. Mistaking sort of started the financial crisis since then. We've seen this upswing and populism. Across the Atlantic, and across the world. Really? And so I guess, I know I think Amanda has head question here as well to, to add in, but I would just ask, how is the tone of politics really changed in your time speaker? I mean you've been witness to this sort of rise in populism and divisiveness. Savvy seen across the cross the world paying out spectacularly, of course in London. So I'd be very curious for your reflections on that. But I wanted to bring him in as well on, on sort of the US angle to this, too. We are in Washington. Of course you need to ask a Trump related question. President Trump, of course, is going to be in London next week for state visits. He was there in two thousand seventeen and you blocked him from addressing parliament during that time citing opposition to, to racism, and sexism, as well as the, the migrant band, we did note that Xi Jinping did address parliament in a state visit in, in two thousand fifteen and rear. She's brain radio programming from Tuesday. WCS PF promotion. So in your effort to allow and encourage free speech and debate in parliament and encourage it among your pace, we were, we were interested in your criteria and. Five. Why one and not the other? Okay. Well, I'll deal with the second question I respect them is you'll come on to us. Amanda in relation to President Trump. The first point to make is that no request. Has been received by me. For President Trump to address gathering of both houses of parliament investments. No request has been received trip. Oh, that's quite true. Yes. In relation to the current trip. I did express myself homeless metro on February. The six twenty seventeen. The wizard certain amount of internal correspondence at that time. And it was certainly being considered. That time. I'm not sure whether it was a formal request recall, receiving a formal request but was out of correspondence and discussion always at that time. But it didn't happen on. I have nothing to add to, to subtract from what I said on February six two thousand seventeen of which you've just given a very eloquent. But in this case, new request has been received. That's the first point the second point, I think he's worth making because you either academics, you'll so or you take an interest in academic study academic research, and empirical evidence. There is a view abroad. And I use the term embroiled in a political sense that it is the breakable norm. The various Fabisch in hollowed convention for visiting president of the United States, coming to the UK to address both houses of parliament. And if you'll forgive me, something, so this is no. So it is not in any sense and unbreakable, normal hollowed convention. It is often happened that is. But it hasn't happened in every case. If memory serves me correctly, I wasn't in Poland at the time, President Reagan did indeed address, both houses of parliament in the Royal gallery, which is a prestigious venue. But it is usually regarded as. A slightly less prestigious venue than Westminster hole. The fact is that President Obama was invited to address both houses of parliament and Westminster hole. And that was very well received. His address was very well received. He was a comparatively Pocono, president in Europe and indeed, as far as my colleagues, and I can tell in the UK, he was also, of course, the first black, president of the United States, and he was invited to address both houses. It must been stolen. It was a great source of pride tomato. Welcome him on that occasion, address was very well received. I'm to be honest people to this day, talk about how behind the scenes he behaved tools, everybody, he met, he wanted to meet every door. He wanted to shake the hands of some of the most junior people on his private tour, which was being filmed. And it was a sin abrasive occasion. I think I'm right in saying that George Bush. Zenia did not address both houses of parliament in either of venues that I've mentioned, or any other and George W Bush, did not do so. I think one of them came during a parliamentary recess. And whether there was a request might I wasn't in post time about seventy Jewish. W Bush didn't so all I'm saying is not in any sense and unbreakable, norm. And that's the second point and then the third point and in relation to the Chinese president is a point very well made by you, and let me be absolutely honest with you, you know, I mentioned, I had sort of basic sense of how I wanted to operate, speak speaker. But you learn you things as you go along. You get new advice, and that's face it. You make mistakes. You did you make mistakes and looking back. Do I think there is a powerful argument that says the perhaps the Chinese president should not have been invited to address both houses of parliament now? The reason powerful occupant. I'm not saying it's conclusive, but if you say you know, I'm not necessarily looking you in relation to President Trump. Why did you think it right to allow the Chinese president's address at the time? The little speaker and I will persuade it with some merit. We were trying to develop that relationship the. Giannis president addressing us. Seemed not to provoke general, consternation. That was my sense something I have to take into account. I had no sense was a generally of outrage amongst parliamentary, Cody. Idea. And it seemed to me to be a reasonable proposition wasn't necessarily the right decision. No, not necessarily, and I'm absolutely open to the idea that maybe, maybe I should have come to a different view about what his policies somebody, I think, at one point dug up the fact that in two thousand twelve emir of Kuwait address both houses parliament. No to be honest in the Royal gallery of Westminster hole in the, the most junior of the possible settings for such an address in the raving room in the house, which is a much smaller room, but the date, and I remember looking at the time because I wasn't necessarily a nominative the idea, and I was told on advice that by comparison with a lot of other countries in that part of the world, you know, his record was not particularly have, and there was something to be said for allowing him to address. This was I write about probably not probably not. And but those matches all post. And, you know, we made the judgment we did I was at annuity Asia, my speakership when the decision was made in two thousand twelve men in October two thousand fifteen so I'm not so the standing him sitting here and saying, oh, I'm about everything on whatever I say, please agree with me with all the criticism apps. Corus gauging criticism. I've maybe I was wrong on lays masses. I won't dilate on the massive President Trump nothing to add to subtract from what I said in February twenty seventeen and. Nothing has happened since then..

The view of Brexit from outside Parliament

"It's been a day of swings and roundabouts for British Prime Minister, Theresa may as she tries to steer Great Britain out of the European Union. The party that's been propping up her government said they would no longer support her deal. Meanwhile, the leaders of her opposition say they may have no choice, but to accept it. Marketplace host KAI Ryssdal is in London this week talking to different people about these uncertain times. And what all this means for the British economy. Kyw good to have you on heard, Kimberly Horia? I'm all right. Where do we catch up with you? I am standing actually in parliament square right outside the houses parliament, Westminster Abbey is around the corner came down. I I guess number one to make point and number two to give you a little bit of a scene. There are some protests going on here. But the point to be made is that these people are just tired and the protesters are looking a little lackluster. They're standing there waving their EU flags or their Brexit. No deal right now flags people here are well, they're tired of this whole story. I got to tell you that. And I have to imagine the folks in parliament are tired of it to action last night, supposedly more votes coming tomorrow. What's happening there? Oh, yeah. Way more votes coming tomorrow. So first of all, let's be clear. This is a political story, but we're going to cover the economics of it. Because no matter when Brexit happens, and frankly, that's in some doubt. Now, the economics of it, the economic impact the business impact of it has already started and is already happening. Just to the politics of it. For a second though, trees me is is in some political jeopardy here. There are votes happening tomorrow that parliament is going to decide maybe what it wants to do and then probably on the twelfth of April. But maybe on the twenty second of may who knows the UK is scheduled now to leave the European Union. If you know nothing changes in the next forty eight to seventy two hours, which is a gamble, right? Things seem to always change with Brexit. But speaking of those changes we expected that deadline to be this Friday, which is why you're there right now. So why? Are you still there right now? Well, we're here because as I said, the economic story has already started, you know, we've been out talking to people for what three or four days now here just to snapshots. We went out yesterday and talked to a guy. He's an Italian gentlemen working here for fifteen years runs, a fashion company. He imports fabrics and designs and materials from all over the European Union. And he says he spends twenty five percent of his time dealing with Brexit and the ramifications for his business talk to another guy at a pub last night, who's in the food importing exporting business. Right. He says eighty eight zero percent of his time for the past year has been spent dealing with Brexit. And so when you think about not only the government concentrating on Brexit so much, but businesses concentrating on Brexit. That's real impact. When these folks are having to do this at the same time as they're trying to run their business, right? It must be exhausting. But at the same time like what what other vibe are you getting out there? I mean, if there are protesters, I'm guessing there's some anger. To there is some anger. I think more than anger really there's frustration. Right. There's great political frustration. There's great as I said economic frustration. And then you look at the people who voted to leave, right? And who knows when or if it's going to happen? One of the things we did Saturday when we got here is we took a train up to Boston England. We went to Boston because that is the most pro Brexit city in the UK seventy five percent of the people voted to leave for them. It's a migration story more than anything else. Right. The folks in Boston have seen an influx of mostly eastern. European emigrants lots of folks from Poland and Lithuania. And the catch for them is this they are a labor force. Those folks are and they have revitalized parts of Boston which has fallen on some economic hard times. But also the locals the the folks who have been there for a while. They're seeing crowding in hospitals. They're seeing crowding in their schools. And so while they want that economic gain that they get the labor force that they get from these eastern Europeans. They don't want the crowning that happens with extra people in their community. Right. And so we are now looking out for those votes tomorrow. Yes votes tomorrow in

"Now it's been announced this after thirty years in power, the president of Kazakhstan, no, so tan af he's going to step down. He will hand over to the speaker of the upper house Parliament, Mr Nazerbayev is not planning to leave politics altogether that for this vast and rich central Asian nation. It will at least be a profound symbolic change. Well, Jonathan Aitken is a former British cabinet minister. He's also perhaps slightly ugly. Mr. Nazarbayev's official biographer survived from say, and he's right. That stability. Came before democracy as a party. Remember when you started as president? The around it was incredibly dangerous. There was no border with Russia and the Russians were some extent threatening Kazakhstan's existence. There was also no border with China. Again, the Chinese said to be rumored to be having aggressive thoughts towards Kazakhstan mineral wealth. He solve those problems. Kazakhstan has very good neighborly relations with Russia and with China and lead with the west and also Kazakhstan was a basket case in terms of its economy as a one party state, rather autocratic leader. Did a good job in those areas. Economic growth stability international respectability, and it's fair to say that really hasn't made much progress in what we regard as western democracy. But it's not that bad a human rights have improved in Kazakhstan, and there is at least the machinery of democracy, even the it's been I think rather well rigged in favour of the incumbent president and father figure and founder of the country. But not everyone shares the same thoughts. If Kenny softest is director of the international bureau of human rights, the rule of law in Mati, and he says Mr. zone, but is it mission will not make a difference in the reality is not the question of who will dissect successor is the question how the political system will be constructed off the he's resigned, and the political system is still under his control here from my point of view failed increase of the rule of law in the country and observance of the human rights, and this results we've kept absolutely corrupted.

The withdrawal agreement is self or get rid of the backstop altogether. The shadow Brexit secretary secure star. So the prime minister had failed to secure significant change, but opposition from Labor's from bench to the plan is already priced in. What matters to the government is how many conservative and Democratic Unionist opponents to it in January can be persuaded to change their minds, given the scale of the government's defeat last time, the prime minister could be very successful in pursuit.

"Nigel Travis the author of the challenge culture, why the most successful organisations run on pushback, he is the chairman of Dunkin brands, and so, you know, what's interesting about that is the the title always caught me. That's that was sort of an interesting way to bring in this idea that how do you get your people your staff, your co worker, he get people talking? How do you get them to feel comfortable enough to push back because that's tough. I'm sorry in this environment where everyone sort of clawing and trying to figure out how they're going to get to the next spot. Sometimes you don't want to put yourself out there. So Travis has a incredibly effective way to get people talking and building on the fact that you know, it is partially a coffee company Dunkin brands also some ice cream. He has something called a coffee chat where he wants to engage people and get them to talk about real stuff. And he doesn't put any limitations on it. But it is interesting. What he finds out? It's also interesting to give people that presence to give them that at that ability to articulate what's on their minds is really effective. So here is more of our interview with Nigel Travis in those two way conversations in those coffee shops. You also make sure that things are civil you don't because you you basically in the in the beginning of the book say that you really the discourse should be civil and that seems like I all so British. And I love that. I mean, not in your houses. Parliament, which seems very non. I wonder how that how you manage that in an age where civility seems to be going down the drain civility is reinforced. If you show that you'll vulnerable, and you're willing to expose yourself. And I think it's it's something I kinda do naturally now. I mean, I will say to someone I believe we should do this or that. And the next question, I seem to say automatically is what do you think of that? And I think civility is so important. I'm appalled with some of the stuff. I say I mean, you know, you sit and watch it doesn't matter which child folks news CNN. Yeah. They're all shouting. So in the coffee jets, it is a very civil conversation. And you actually hear what people are saying. It's kind of radical to actually hear what people say it's interesting because you also said that you you are willing to engage on tough, topics. And it's fascinating to hear people say off the record. Here's what I think. But they don't want it. They don't trust the organization or the higher ups because they feel like nothing's going to change. Why would I put myself out there? It sounds to me like you your willingness to hear someone's worries complaints anxieties could raise some tough issue. So in that experience, did you ever have to tackle? Something that you were surprised by had to act on. Did anything get raised up for you that you said oh my God. I didn't know that. I have to do something. We did have someone who after coffee Chesa Kravis chat with you. They didn't want to put it out publicly and the issue was some big. But the person just wanted to raise it. We also have a few cultural issues in some other countries because sometimes the American culture doesn't much the local one we delved into it worked it out. And it was a very nice accommodation because you know, other countries look at it very differently from America. Sometimes you just have to get all the facts on the table recognized Al coach here in America. And despite the fact that sound very British. They may that may be different cultural approach from what happened saying Italy ultimately store somewhere else. So when you have these conversations, how do you filter it back? To your management. How do you do that? Well, hey, that's important. And what I do is. I actually have an independent person who is young from covert communications who takes the notes. I don't take the notes she writes notes, and I we don't say that Joe said this Fred said that it's this point was went on the group discussed this point on the group's few was not it's not necessarily as physically valid sample. Because some the may have been quite and then what I do is I send the notes to our leadership team. And then if something that's really critical, I'll go back to my follow-up. I'll follow up and say, what are we doing about this? How important do you think in your leadership the role of speaking out in the public square about things going I knew got into a bit of hot water talking about immigration and? I'm wondering how you feel that corporate America's responsibility towards speaking out. When you see something you disagree with it used to be one hundred years ago, when you know companies were kind of muddling along and during their business. No one wanted to take a stand. How do you view that responsibility as a C suite executive? Well, it's it's fascinating. Because I think I've got nailed twice in one year. Walmart's on immigration as you point out in us in the book, another one was about minimum wage this country has a remarkably open government. I mean, I don't think it's anywhere else in the world that you can go down to Washington, a meet people who are truly important and talk to them in a very open and candid manner. So I think this country doesn't get the credit deserves for that. And it doesn't really matter which administration I've been down there in the Obama administration talked to very important people in this administration. I've had excellent dialogues with people like secretary across the labor secretary. The small business administration Linda McMahon et etcetera. So I think it's very I think west some see as wrong is they say, but don't do. I think you have to go down you have to talk to people in Washington or it could be Sacramento, California. Or you could go down to the state house in Boston. You have to go and see people talk about it. It's no good. Just going on the radio or the TV and saying this needs to happen, you need to explain your point of view. I think in many ways it goes back to civility. I think CEO's do have to stand and give their views. I think government needs to hear it. But the key thing is government. Whatever government is it could be the AU. It could be the White House. It could be a state Senate all the governor or whatever you need to say to them face to face. So that they clearly understand your point. And I think a good example. Is you know, we have franchisees we represent franchisees two thousand globally, and when the whole tax reform Bill was going through we made the point about pasta taxation. And and the end result was I think we made a difference by making our point. But it was only by constantly go in there and talking and again reinforce I've found both parties to be amazingly receptive to talk to people I have to just like pivot a little bit here. Because you you have a section on napping, which I thought was the most wonderful thing for someone to wake up at four o'clock in the morning, are you there? Yes, there you go for high five, and it's exhausting to to two o'clock roll around for me. Talk about your napping habits. Well, yeah. I mean, I tend not to sleep too long. I like to go to bed at ten. Ten that's already in our past my bedtime. Okay. They go to bed at Satan tend to read the times London. So get tomorrow's news today. And then I tend to wake up four or five something like that. And then if you work really hard by about two you feel tired Knipe I've done in the office. I I did home when I travel, and I've always traveled a lot in Los few years, and they're probably drop a bit. Now, I've done one hundred and forty flights here.
