That game is foreign to him as british slang and the traffic flow. But that's okay. With rebecca the new team owner who got ownership in a divorce settlement. She doesn't expect ted to win. In fact she's counting on the opposite just to irradiate her ex. But ted with his stubbornly positive attitude keeps on plugging. He seldom makes a good first impression. He talks too much and throws out too much word play an obscure references but he shouldn't be underestimated. His good vibes usually end up winning the day. Even if they don't necessarily win the game for season two. The focus is less on the field then on personal relationships.

And duncan kenworthy who was producing But mike newell who is directing. It thought i was promising. And i got the part and started a whole new thing in my. Did they hit you as a human being or did they just eight year performance. They may have hated me as a human being. What they hated was identify even hated my performance. I what they hated was the guy as written was meant to be light. Richard curtis himself who Wears glasses and is Not necessarily the guy who would get the girl Let's say that. I mean he's very extremely charming funny but he doesn't look like a casanova and they thought maybe was to sort of pretty boy and two posh as well So that's why we then went to troubled to dress me in the worst imaginable clothes and they tried to give me the worst haircut. They could which was ironic. Because i had cut then became quite a thing. People wanted after that film but it was meant to be the world's worst heck on so. How old were you. When film was released. I well a thirty four. Think oh so you weren't you weren't in your twenties anymore because you've got really super famous after that Yes that's why. I was in my early thirties. And i i love the theory. I've heard that People who suddenly get well known stick emotionally intense their personality at the moment of which they get famous. They can't move on from it. I've heard stories. That george clooney in his vast mansion still sleeps in the closet because he was sleeping in a very small bomb and when he got famous and i have found that my tastes or the things.

My grandfather fought two world wars to defend. Did your grandfather tell you stories about world war one. Well he never spoke about well one He did talk about the second world war one. He was underage to join up and he was rejected. And then try it again and Gave a false and was sent up to the trenches and we don't really know what happened but we know he ended up in a hospital in london in a very bad way he never spoke about it. You know you would never go to london for the rest of his life. Says something terrible happened. And i think it involved shell shock. So how did he fight in world war two after that experience. So when the second war came along He was kind of these and He went out. When the british expeditionary force went out at the beginning of the war horrendously under-equipped in relation to the extraordinarily well equipped advanced nazi army. That drove the british back to the coast and where they had to be rescued. A dunkirk as you've seen in the films met in the history books except for one division. Which church or wanted to leave in france to both to the morale of the french and keep the french fighting a bit longer and that division was my grandfather's the highland division scottish soldiers and they ended up retreating another north northern french Habitat valley where they were surrounded by these. Incredibly advanced troops led by rummell. Rommel's first job. In the will and Pulverized and Being from these ancient scottish regiments with very noble tradition. They wouldn't surrender and they just kept fighting and fighting and fighting and in the end it was Every man from self and they will try to scatter and break through the lines. And and my grandfather was finally captured and spent the rest of the warren prisoner-of-war camp attempting to escape. He was one of the great esque apologists and made several brilliant attempts in the best one where he buried himself alive on exercise island outside the prison and he intimate go right across germany to the border switzerland where the local farm found them and turn them into the germans With great apology. Saying i'm sorry. But if i don't and they find out don't kill me my children and The extrordinary coded to that story was that my grandfather in the fifties was on a ship to south africa leaning over the rail staring at the sunset talking to the guy next to him. Happen to be Swiss german and it was that farmer. You kidding me. Good isn't it. What was that conversation like. I think it was all right. I think it was cordial amazing. he survived.

He was kind of quarry nearby and he'd set up these faces of basically germans and he'd he tape a little pill capsules of fake blood on their noses and then we'd be two hundred yards away and we'd have to try and hit their faces their noses.

A star was four weddings and a funeral. He told terry he got his start in the business. Doing voices for radio commercials and sketches on television. I didn't know you'd voiced commercials in probably their commercials. We didn't see in the us. What kind of commercials were they. And what kind of voices did you have to do. They are radio commercials and they were written by me and my two friends and they were a produced by us and very active buyers and all sorts of city things i. I don't know that we we used to do which sounded rather see british films from the nineteen forties. You know when everyone kept way and we do others where we were doing west country accent my dogs. He's a working dog. that's why he drinks. Red stripe lager. It was all surreal and extraordinaire. But that's yeah. We were just doing city stuff for a living that become your early resume portfolio who. I didn't have a portfolio. We mean we just messing around really and they went on to do more of that and then one day. I had an agent but i i was not particularly interested in normal acting and he said no no no. There's this film where they want to see you. Morris i said i don't think so thanks i i. I'm preferring doing what i'm doing. And he said no. Go and my brother who happened to be home. That day is a banker said go. You need some money. Living with him. And i wasn't contributing. And i went and i got that film and i did it and it had a little bit of success and that sort of I suppose swerved my career away from doing voices. Two more mainstream acting as a merchant ivory film wasn't yeah. It was that film. They did after room with a view. It was a based on another enforced. It was the the one between ramal the view and howards end. It was about as secret. Which was that he was. He was gay and this was back in the beginning of the twentieth century. And so he was. It was a manuscript he kept under his bed or his life was published posthumously. We used to price to have a film career extremely flabbergasted i mean on i very nearly managed to throw it away after that film did quite well and we did well at the venice film festival and my two co-stars then had a very successful two three years and i managed to sell out and just do highly paid terrible miniseries and very odd european what i could euro puddings where they'd be written by spaniard directed by german english actors. They will often. They never got released properly But it sounded like fun pretty actresses in it. That i wanted to spend time with did did things for all the wrong motives And very much over nearly awfully killed my career before. Suddenly four weddings came along a few years later. The how'd you get the role. Well for weddings was odd because a things were pretty bad state in terms of improper acting for me and then the script came through. And i remember calling my agent and saying i think there's been a mistake because you sent me a good script and they did have a track record of doing that. They done it once before. And i'd called and said hang on. This is good and you show. It was meant for me and and they'd said no sorry or isn't tom cruise. That was jerry india.

"Things going on beneath the surface in episode. One of the undoing. I need the audience to think this man's lovely and so yes. I did use a bit of rome. com charm. I suppose in a very delicate way. I hope and i also true. I always to just keep some things vaguely unsettling about him even in episode one like is this guy too good to be true so yeah. There's a bit of that and as for changing my way acting. That's just devolved. I've just learned. I've learned mistakes. I've learned for me it's about preparation really and everything's about thoughts it's not about. How do i very often what i did before is i thought i know how to say this line particularly funny line. I know how to get the law. And then i'd go there in front of the camera and i just try and replicate what i'd been doing in front of the mirror. That's disastrous. i now much better at not having any preconceived plan and i just go in with The right thoughts and then just let it happen because the camera loves anything freshly minted that moment. That's always the take that gets used. And it's also why improvise quite a lot because it's fresh and what the camera hates is anything repeated or performed one of my favorite rom coms of the recent past is music and lyrics in which you play a washed up lead singer songwriter from an eighties hairband. And you're kind of reduced to just playing your old songs and playing at fairs. You're not really a star anymore. And i just thought it captured. It's just a really fun film and the music and it was so great and so funny because it was kind of like parodies of eighty songs but they could have been real success. That we're actually pretty catchy so you had to sing for it. Had you sung in public before and it's cheating. I had no idea how cheated. Music is these days. I'm okay. i'm not good. I sound like julie andrews which is not great for rock or pop but much to enunciated but drew who has to sing in the film as well. I don't think she'd mind me telling you is a harasser. She's horrendous singer but what they do with. Computers now is so brilliant in terms of putting you in tune that You just wouldn't you wouldn't know and in fact she's got a lot of soda in her singing voice he's not julie andrews a tool and she sounds brilliant And it's not just the it's not just putting you in june you know. They take tiny samples they take us syllable of a word from one track splice it with a syllable from another taken. They they sit up for all night for weeks and weeks and weeks till they've created this perfect thing. In addition in addition to having like an auto tuning kind of thing. Did you take voice lessons that you have a voice coach. Yes i did. He was very nice. But a much harder for me was stressing around on stage Kind of dancing. And performing the mike in my hand they gave me a brilliant choreographer Who did all kind of kylie minogue. And all those people britney spears and i think that was one of the low moments of my career if not my life is the first rehearsal with him. It was just him and a big boombox music in a vast russell room somewhere in hutton. And he said okay well before we try and work out any moves a tory said. Let me just see how you move. Naturally i'm going to put on some music and i just want you to freak out put on some music. I stood still for twenty minutes. Wasn't getting that he was not getting that out of forty year old englishman. Eleven o'clock in the morning so it was very difficult in the end. I did scenes on a sneaky combination of whiskey. And the rather pam tranquilizers brought to me by my loyal may come go in a seven bottle. Did you self medicate for love. Actually where you do a whole dance sequence. No i did. I did that completely sober. I don't know how the hell happened. But these are terrible things to have to do if you an update englishman. Okay said you've hung out with a lot of politicians in that you know. A lot of them are narcissists. How did you get to hang out with a lot of politicians. I mean you've played. Jeremy thorpe the former leader of the liberal party. You've campaigned against brexit. Those ways that you've gotten to know politicians. Yeah we'll both of those more recent but but way back. I'm was two thousand eleven. I don't know if you were aware of watched. Any of the sort of Phone hacking scandal blowing up in britain. There were a number of us who'd been enraged for years about extraordinary power of a few newspaper. Titles here the power to really live above the law and to effectively run the country they choose all prime ministers and prime ministers. Don't legislate without checking. I with a few Wealthy newspaper ballots. And we'd been ranting and raving about that for some years and but we realized the public was never gonna get particularly fascinated in this subject unless there was some something that scandalise then and then there was in two thousand eleven. One of the papers will it was revealed. Had been a hacking the phone of a teenage girl who had been a abducted and was subsequently murdered. And it's a complicated story. But the hacking of her phone gave the parents false hope because when they were calling her phone it looked like maybe she'd on certain in fact she she'd already been murdered and the public was revolted in a very big way and on the back of that we managed to get a big public inquiry. Judge leading quarry. Huge thing happened in in britain with every everyone from newspapers. Everyone from the police. Everyone from politics brought in lasted a year and recommendations were made to sort out the power of the press without curtailing the freedom and so then the campaign became about getting latte put into law and it was very difficult because the conservative government of that time was under massive pressure from these very powerful newspapers. We're basically saying if you put this into law. That's the end of you as prime minister because they have that power and in the end it was made law.

Jonathan is charged with the crime. We learned that he was having an affair with her and has a surprisingly dark side. But that doesn't necessarily mean he's a murderer.

He is being interviewed on tv by connie chung while his wife and son watch at home. Connie chung asks jonathan what he wants people to see about him. Here's his response. I suppose the question is the truth. Which is to say that. I'm floored i do not pass myself off as honorable. Because i'm not i was unfaithful to a wife who i love.

You say you suddenly came upon her. You discovered her dead. But why don't you run. Because i was in shock and i mean that in the medical sense so that's that's a cognitive shutdown.

That i was the cause of her death which is not to say that she died at my hand but i felt it was possible. Probably that someone else in a fit of jealousy or rage. Let's not forget story.

I'm not sure what that says about me but it's It's certainly been a a blessed relief after having to be mr nice guy for so many years Which is a thankless task for any actor. Any act we'll tell you that we don't know until the final episode whether your character is really a sociopathic killer or not and with each episode. You start to doubt him more you start doubting his version of the truth more. But you don't really know. And i mean the truth is usually in stories like this The person who is guilty isn't and then there's a surprise somebody else did it. Someone who didn't suspect and there's a couple of opportunities we think. Oh that's going to be the case. Be this person who. I didn't suspect so after often like to do research. It's not like you were going to hang around with sociopathic murderers to see you like to be one. So what were you able to draw on to figure out the psychology of the character and the behavior. Well i've i'm pretty good on narcissists because there's plenty in my business i've also spent a good deal of the last decade a surprisingly close to politicians they rival anyone i know in show business for narcissism so i've seen a lot of that stuff up close and then the bit i didn't know a lot about was doctors and at what point there A marvelous abilities to cure can cuddling into something a little creepy wet weather. The egos dot to take over more about. I'm such a wonderful doctor. And neither you know not sure i really care if this person lives or dies long as i can test my new theory and so i- research data bit. I talked to a lot of doctors in the uk and then in new york and they were all much too nice. Lovely people who i keep in touch with to this day And finally i found one who wasn't an oncologist. A tour my brother who lives in manhattan and his wife had said you need to meet this guy because he's He's one that all the ladies want to go to for the neo peration even when there's nothing wrong with their knee so i went. I went to see him and he he he was very charming and well dressed and likable and I thought he was very useful to me. You could see some narcissism there as well so you had to convince yourself that adopter. Who was a pediatrician. And cares for children with cancer is on colleges and seems to be a very good at what he does. You have had to convince yourself. That's at your doctor. Could also be that dark and be capable of killing somebody. Yes yes exactly it. Well i had to convince myself that there are cases of doctors where it's not about the patient. It's about them and with in the case of jonathan. I think that everything everything was about him Curing children was about him and the wonderful. I am his love for his wife and his child with about him. Come dual me and so on..

Is it like one season boom, boom boom. What did you without giving it away? Of course. What did you think of the ending? Okay, so my runs and I talked about this a lot. Some people were upset because they felt like it was pretty obvious. I loved the ending because I felt like it was more realistic like they weren't trying. To trick you. I guess it was just kind of like this is what it is. You got weird to me like it got it got weird like I felt I felt like Hugh Grant was so good in that he was so good in that Nicole Kidman was so good. I'm Donald Sutherland is amazing to see him always. I'll be a way to talk about off here. I had a theory about the undoing. On HBO had a theory that turned out not to be true, because I thought it was just too obvious to have a go one way. I'm not saying if it did her duty, But then you gotta you gotta watch it. It's worth it. And because it's only six episodes, and I guess we're done, But that was a thing like they wrapped it up at the end, and I'm like all so I guess we're not ever coming back to this.

On last night, I I watched the first episode and I binge watched four of them and I'll be doing it again tonight. Outstanding first episode took a minute. I thought, okay, This looks like it could be good. We'll see. And then as it gets in toward the at the end you go. Whoa! I'm not talking about the woman breast feeding in public don't know That's that's kind of walk too, but no, no, no. Time of the murder is a murder mystery. And it's It's pretty shocking stuff that crazy, brutal or gory, but it's really well written. And it's got Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant in it. Of everybody in its outstanding one of things. I noticed about this aside from the actual if you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about? Very good. But on I'm just breaking the surface here. I'm gonna move in Episode five later tonight, but This. This this? What would you call it? The overarching ambiance of what these people do now She's a psychiatrist. He's in an oncologist, and they got a lot of money. And you, you? Ah, you early on, You see the life they live and you think if you have to live in New York for any reason, that's the level of which you want to live. Otherwise get out of the town. Get out. This is ah! Upper West Side, Uh, median family income of $4 million a year type stuff their apartment the way they travel around the city. It's all outstanding. They put their kid in a school that costs $60,000 a year to stick him in, like a third grader. Eighth grade autumn, But, uh, it's pretty outstanding again. The plot is is very, very well. I know it's gonna turn around. There's gotta be something where it just doesn't twist. It can obviously be what it looks like now. It's very well done if you haven't seen it. I strongly recommend you do if you got HBO on If you don't you're not missing anything. There's not much over there these days, but every now and then they come up with something. And I just When I think I'm out, I get pulled back in. Uh, the undoing, undoing. Let's get back into this piece here talking about them doing what? I'm doing our country, Dude, Where's my country? So we went through Pennsylvania. And Georgia and this is the lawsuit filed by Ken Paxton. He's a Texas what is the attorney general? And, uh, This fantastic is doing this, and he's suing. Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin because they have broken broken with Constitutionally limited republic. The laws the rules they're in. Because they changed election law without going through their state. The respect to state legislatures. This is this land dunk now. Sauce. Some Becky Jackson, Texas told me on Becky Ex your You want next time you see your attorney General Bayan, but Donut, okay? Um You said they were gonna take the case, but I didn't see it on any other site. If the Supreme Court said they'll take the case that will be all over Lou Dobbs when they do So the second constitutional violation occurred when individual counties in each of the four states changed the way that they would receive, evaluate and treat ballots. 20 years ago in landmark case burn. Bush versus Gore, the Supreme Court held that it violated the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment. When one Florida County just one county treated balance one way. And another Florida County treated Belle. It's a different way. Now we get ST started, by the way well, Kris Kobach goes on to say voters had the constitutional right to have their balance. Treated equally from Carney to county. So on election officials in Wayne County, Michigan, ignored the requirements of Michigan law and denied poll watchers access to vote counting, while other counties in Michigan follow the law. That violated the equal protection clause. Now, by the way, that was the same that happened in Pennsylvania. You could make the case that happened in Georgia just by virtue of that video capture of people saying, OK, you guys get out of the room. We're through Counterbalance, er, you have to leave now And then, as soon as they're gone, they whip out a bunch of balances Start counting again. Go back into the P sir. Kris Kobach, says former attorney general of Kansas Similarly in Wisconsin when the administrator of the city of Milwaukee Elections Commission ignored the requirements of Wisconsin law and directed election workers to write in the address of witnesses on the envelopes containing mail in ballots. Well balanced without witness addresses were deemed invalid elsewhere. That resulted in unequal treatment of ballots in the state. So that in itself right there, and you haven't heard much about that, where the Let's say just just writing in a name. Now we know that people were doing that with signatures on balance. To importantly, the Texas lot presents a pure question of law. I'm Mr rather importantly, the Texas lawsuit presents a pure question of law. That's exactly it. That's when I read this. It hit me like like a hammer. They can't deny this case at the Supreme Court level. If they do, they'll be denying law. 1% In the Constitution..

He would never go to London for the rest of his life. So something terrible happened. And I think it involved Shell shock. Yeah. So how do you fight in World War two after that experience.

Review: The Crown Season 4
"Let's move on onto the crown. It's been about ten days most people who loved the crowd. I think we're done with the season. Sadly one of the season five do you know now for two years. Yeah because they filmed the two seasons together together usually with the cast. Because i think it's easier on production and then also with the cova of it all. I don't know when they will be able to start production so that there was a two year break between seasons two and three and i think there'll be more to your break. Who will you miss the most which actor being extremely honest. It's going to be joshua crowder for. I really am what a monster charles becomes in the second half of season four. And what an effect josh o'connor still has me. It's really quite something. I said this via text by the scene episode austrailia when they do the kind of the ballroom dance for the show which is a real event. I've seen a lot of side. By sides of the they got the close. Perfectly matched was so charming. I don't understand why all men don't learn how to dance ballroom dance because it was like ninety seconds and i'm sold completely infatuated. He can do whatever just absolutely despicable entitled selfish things. He wants to do for the rest of the season. And i'm like oh but this guy really charming. It's it's pretty sad. What happened with him and his family. Don't you think how about the australia episode again. Catch the chris ryan on the watch. Yes i thought it was effective. My i don't wanna say my struggle. Let me just say season for masterpiece. Love the show love all four seasons. Great great television will watch again. Can't wait it. This is a show about the crown. And honor show about princess diana and i know that intellectually but i hid obviously been waiting for the diana's season my whole life that sometimes i wanted a little bit more diana or just like there is a lot more to be told obviously it would be told from her perspective and it would just be a different show so i i hate criticism when they're like the show. Were another show. The australia episode was. I thought a very well done like condensation of the entire diana phenomenon into one also and in reality that like happened over a span of years and the up stage effect and everything that they kinda that they illustrate was was very real but develops over time. And it's like the media plays more of a role. And i think there is like a lot more stuff between charles and diana and you know there's all this stuff with What's going on with diana and her believe me and her family is shown and handled pretty sensitively but not always developed from her side. If that makes any sense yeah. I think if you also you read about her her mental health struggles were like it. Very extensive and it was went beyond believe me and i thought that like it was handled well but also like i think it's worth noting that there is also many other episodes throughout her life or at least heard adult life. Yeah exactly and i understand why because they are as loop says in the very last scene of the season. This is a show about one woman. And it's not diana it's about elizabeth and it's about that institution so and you could do one hundred episodes of the eighties in the uk. Like there's so much going on. So i understand the choices that they had to make narrative in order to fit it all in and i thought it did paint a like a pretty thorough picture. But i'm always gonna want more. I just really didn't care for her monologue on the plane about the baby. Not that i thought it was like. I'm not like she's wrong but i just thought that was like emigrants were seen. I was just like this is working for me. But i thought that the stuff with charles's was pretty good. Yeah i think. I continue to think. I'm a porn is like astonishing and i've been thinking a lot about what you said about how you're not a the huge a fan but that the performance kind of stuck out to you and i get and i think that that is really perceptive and for me kinda part of what makes it work. I don't want to say it's like intention early. But diana did not fit in to this family. It was like different energy. A different vibe. And there's a great line in the queen. Which is the peter morgan. movie about. Princess princess diana's death and the week after it. Which i recommend starring helen mirren great stuff as sort of like great crown prerequisite or if he also available on netflix. Right now justify But the character in the queen says you have to remember that there. Diana are diana or two completely different people. And i think the performance captures a lot of that and like the scene. Went diana's trying to hug the queen and they're they're talking at each other and it's not just that they have philosophical emotional differences but they just come from different worlds. they have different emotions different energies. It's like total total mismatch. And that's definitely part of the problem. So when she is making her stands are expressing her. Diana s. sometimes it's really heartbreaking and sometimes are like what are you doing. This is completely wrong as encapsulated that julia did not worry me about which i appreciate from spoiler episode perspective but from a personal perspective. The phantom of the opera video cassette was hilarious and excruciating and. I do think the first time. I like fully pulled the blanket up over my head when watching it. I didn't actually watch it. The first time i had to just kind of sit like that and know that it would end soon and then i read wound to watch the facial expressions that is bisciste. Yeah and i you know i don't. I don't think that happened in relaxed. Maybe it did. I've never read it. And i think i would remember it but really the billion joel performance israel israel. Yeah and it in caps elites. Maybe i think that poor diana who had a lot going on and as you said like a lot of mental health issues and believe me and didn't have any support like her family was not very helpful or totally absent in the case of the crown. But there were also some things that just really ideologies didn't align how about that and and that scene shows you why who it really is just like so much. I can't believe we're only gonna get one season about mc oran. I feel like i m not like her biggest fan but also feel like switching the diana character after one season. I don't. I'm not really in favor of but Must be a fairly significant time job. i'm curious to see how season five goes

"So hugh grant this. Isn't lighter covert back in february. He made the revelation on the late show with stephen colbert and in classic hugh grant fashion dave very colorful description of his symptoms. Started as just a very strange syndrome where i kept breaking into a terrible sweat. It was like a show of sweat embarrassing really and then my eyeballs felt about three sizes too big and this feeling as though some enormous man was sitting on my chest the harvey weinstein or someone. That's not it. I don't know what this is. And then i was walking down the street one day and i thought i can't smell a damn thing and you start to panic because by then people just started talking about this as a symptom and i started sniffing flowers. Nothing you get more and more desperate. I started sniffing in garbage cans. And then you want to sniff strangers armpits because you just can't smell anything.

Sante Kimes: Mother, Murderer, and Criminal Mastermind
"Is is the story of the original helicopter mother sean take times and her son kenny holy shit i'm about to tell you a story that i got an jay did the research urge for me i got sources from vanity fair article from two thousand by a writer named susanna andrews called sean times mother murderer and criminal masterminds as well as wikipedia murder pedia and sean taes LA times obituary i also last night watched this made for TV movie like mother like son the a strange story of sean kennedy times it's on youtube it's so good at starring mary tyler moore sean times she's amazing she play they like the quintessential like this is the type of person we're talking about like the quintessential mary tyler moore she like out of the box she's out of the box this is not the mary the MTA AMU thought you know she's a she's a schemer and con artist and a weirdly sexual with everybody and it's very uncomfortable to watch our hero mary tyler moore be the key such a villain expressed jean stapleton is in it who if you if you aren't familiar is a great actress she was is it all in the family i stephen yes that's how she's very well know but she is a an amazing actress when you when you see her in another part you're like oh my god she's so good very different and then and gabriel olds plays kenny times and i think he is from a soap opera but he is great so anyway and that made for TV movie was based on the book the mother the sun and the socialite socialite by adrian hill so there's lots of things if the story interests you get down and dirty details in lots of ways so let me let me get into it we will start with a woman irene silverman so irene she's a retired ballerina she was in the new york city ballet accompany member but she was also an elite socialite and she lived with her husband multimillionaire mortgage broker sam silverman in an extravagant seven million dollar townhouse on east sixty fifth street in manhattan seven million seven million in the seventies oh my god yeah and so so she is an extrovert she throws parties all the time she's she's a true social fun yeah right having money she's always entertaining guests has tons of friends canopies everywhere pays can pay an canopy it's even that can the pay can i pay existence so when her husband sam passes away in one thousand nine hundred eighty irene decides that she's going to take their humongous townhouse and and turn it into like an apartment building into basically luxury apartments so on average the rents of these individual apartments go for about six thousand dollars hours a month which in today's money would be seventeen thousand five hundred dollars or an apartment for an apartment in on east sixty sixty fifth street manhattan all right write nana's so her tenants are very impressive and include such luminaries luminaries as the marquis and marchioness of northampton you know i'm reading a phonetic spelling of both of those martian of north hampton danton marcia marcia s north hampton not a martian take me to your leader day-lewis and chaka khan i would together together we don't start gossip but yes they were deeply in love with those with that cast list i'd i pay up to eighteen thousand dollars a month to live there he managed to get a camera installed so i can watch your go downstairs to get your mail and their chaka khan like hey girl what's up you know like thank you wanna go out partying let's party so okay we're going to skip ahead about twenty years after she's established he's beautiful luxury apartments now irene is eighty two years sold on june fourteenth nineteen ninety eight a young businessman from palm beach named manny garren arrives at irene's home asking if he can rent one of his apartments he is traditionally good looking like lou diamond phillips special something you know everybody has different tastes we talk talk about people being good looking at beautiful time but who knows what people like you don't get a fucking say in it that's right traditionally good-looking means if someone drew a picture that's what a good looking person look like right look hugh grant traditionally good luck traditionally good-looking right but there's lots of people who are good looking dapper eh anyhow self esteem he's good looking traditionally well-spoken very friendly very charming i'm very smooth he tells iran he was referred by a mutual friend she recognizes the name oh you know it's all great or the marchioness from it's a yeah it's the marchioness us or the marquess unfortunately manny doesn't have any ID on him can't remember his social security number and the only he doesn't have any other references but he promises he's going to get them to irene the next day and then he gives her six grand in cash for his first month's rent so ordinarily irene there's actually very careful about stuff like this but because they have mutual friend and because he's paying in cash and probably because he's traditionally good-looking incredibly charming she allows him to move in the day of day of fact that okay everyone will and also well ninety eight early days of the internet yeah that's ten and eighty two year old woman wouldn't real absolutely it was all there at our fingertips okay so over the course of the next three weeks manny goes from being a charming suave a businessman type to a creepy weirdo he never turns over the proper ID or references he will not allow irene's maids into the unit to clean which goes along with your six thousand dollar rent ready yeah kind of like hotel he always hides his face from the security camera in irene's lobby show very acorn shell and he always has strange guests in his apartment and including an older woman who seems to be there all the time john chaka khan shocker gone she would shock would never go down she knows creeps when she sees him right now in the mary tyler moore movie that i watched watched she tells when the maid comes she tells her that she is manny's assistant and is very rude to the man so she doesn't make any friends so so basically after the first week irene decide she's gonna ask manny to leave she's like you had your you had your month enough of this he flatly refuses flabby creepy can you imagine that traditionally handsome i am flatly refusing something then you're just like well i guess this is the new reality yeah because the the hawk doesn't want to right well here's what irene does 'cause she didn't take any shit she cuts off his phone line thinking that's going to get him out of there and she begins eviction shen proceedings so she's immediately kicking yourself for being nice yeah which is what happened always a mistake so on the evening of saturday july fourth nineteen ninety eight i arena has friends over 'cause it's fourth of july and they also have noticed manny's strange behavior she irene explains the whole situation and her friends are very concerned and they say you know like do you need help what he wants to do she says that she can handle it they know she's tough as his nails so you know everybody feels okay about it the next morning july fifth nineteen ninety eight irene asks one of her maids if she would run some errands for her and when the made gets back from running those errands she can't find irena anywhere in the house from the made immediately contact irene's business manager who then decides to contact like the police and when the police searched the home they don't find any signs of disturbance there's no blood inside the struggled indicate that there was violence or or an incident of any kind so they start questioning irene's friends and the tenants but manny garin is nowhere to be found and when they run a name check on on that one new mysterious tenant the name manny garin is fake so suddenly the mystery tenant is now possible suspect in iran's disappearance it just so happens that on that same night july fifth a mother and son by the name of sean taylor and kenneth times are arrested in front of the manhattan hilton holton for stealing a lincoln towncar from a dealership in cedar city utah wow yes they finally tracked them down and they get arrested so when a detective who was on the scene for the silverman case sees the story of the crimes arrest on the news he sees kenneth and says that looks looks exactly like the description of manny garin and handsome hey that guy's traditionally handsome in a way that bores me but that but then i also immediately immediately trust for reasons i can't explain so he puts it together that they are one in the same person so on july seventh nineteen ninety eight the NYPD have shontayne kenneth times properly identified and in custody and that's when they discovered that the mother and son are being tracked by the FBI as suspects for a slew of crimes across across the nation including arson fraud and murder okay so now we'll go back we'll talk a little bit about sean times she was born sandra louise sing in oklahoma city on july twenty fourth nineteen thirty four she grows up in nevada with her parents mary van horn and mahendra promising and there's almost nothing known about her childhood factually they believe that her birth certificate was forged forged so her exact origins and even date of birth are they're not sure creepy about it and the funny thing is is mary tyler moore playing sean take himes all she talks about how much she hates getting older and aging it's it's pretty funny so it would make sense that the first thing she does erase her birth sir
Britain’s Unwritten Constitution Suddenly Looks Fragile
"The u._k. U._k. of wednesday's decision by her majesty the queen elizabeth the second herself to approve prime minister boris johnson's request to suspend parliament until the middle of october now a lot of people saw this as boris johnson's way to prevent his adversaries from blocking no deal brexit before the october thirty first deadline deadline and some people went a lot further than that shutting down parliament in order to force through an audio brexit which will do untold and lasting damage to the country is not democracy. It's dictatorship and if m._p.'s don't come together next week to stop boris johnson in his tracks then i i think today will go down in history. As the yuki democracy died scotland's first minister nicholas sturgeon there simon my british friend <hes> so often we we asked this of your countrymen when they come on this show what is going on. We always have the same refrain when it comes to brexit. What's the latest here. What is the significance against of what nicholas sturgeon calls the end of democracy on the island. I was thinking on the way he had told that we could spend the entire hour discussing british parliamentary procedure all the vagaries areas of operating with an unwritten constitution but it might just be easier to explain the rules of cricket to emirati. We'd get further and understand more. This is a huge huge move by boris johnson fueled by seventeen point two million voters who in that referendum three years ago now said they wanted to pull britain written out of the european union. He is essentially risking a constitutional crisis and i think even a societal crisis to try and get britain out of the european union but the problem is <hes> that he is a prime minister himself with no democratic mandate of his own replaced theresa may as a result of the votes of members visit of the british conservative party less than naught point. One percent of the british public essentially voted him in he has inherited exactly the same parliamentary array of forces parliamentary difficulties that tied to resume up in knots. We sit here and we see that shock of blond hair and we think oh. Everything's changed in the okay. Nothing's changed. The only thing that's changed is the occupant of number ten downing street and he's doing the one thing that five members of his own cabinet argued less than a month ago would be profoundly undemocratic and autocratic namely an enron an end run around parliament and he's gonna prorogue it which is a fancy name for saying suspended activities <hes> for several days i mean the number of days involved is open to debate but for five weeks parliament will not meet in what he hopes is a move that will allow him to pave the way if necessary to pull britain out out of the european union without an agreement with brussels something that he knows parliament would vote to block and there's a fundamental issue here which is sovereignty supporters of brexit have argued since the debate was first mooted that one of the reasons why britain needs to leave the european union is because we need to get our sovereignty back but britain sovereignty is enshrined in what we are all taught at grade. School is the mother of parliaments so the idea that in order to get british sovereignty back. You actually may have to suspend the activities of parliament. It's a real rhetorical problem for boris johnson and he's going to be facing. I think major protests over the next few days as a result. I cannot tell you what hugh hugh grant famous british actor tweeted about this because it would get us fined by the f._c._c. and get me thrown off the air but ron howard rank and file people reacting is this similar to what happens in the united states where there's sort of outrage on one side shrugs on another side and people sort of move onto the next outrage or is this really permeating british societies permeating me any british society because while <hes> obviously labor is is opposed to this but you also have dettori's conservatives who are posted as to you and you just saw that you know former british prime minister. John major has jumped in on on a on a lawsuit to try and stop this activity. It seems that johnson's johnson is betting that the e._u.
