Interview with Tuvia Tenenbom
"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time.

‘No, I'm not part of the problem’: Corbyn responds to anti-Semitism report
"Reports quote. Labor has suspended its former leader, Jeremy Corbyn, after he said anti Semitism in the party was overstated. Following a damning report from the equality watchdog. The move is likely to ignite a civil war in the Labour Party. Korben condemned his suspension as a political intervention and said he would strongly contest the action. Mr. Corbin gave an interview then to the Guardian newspaper. What I said today Wass that anti Semitism is unacceptable in any form. What I said exactly what I said was the numbers of cases in the public perception had become overstated The existence of the problem I fully acknowledge, which is Why I took action to end the problem in the party by introducing a process to get anti seen lights out off the party.

Let's just bring it back to today in this country.

Covid missteps in the UK
"Been seven months in sparse Johnson's conservative scored the best Tory parliamentary majority since the me nine thousand nine hundred. And yet outsiders well, that could be forgiven for thinking that it was Jeremy Corbyn Socialism. That's triumphed. You think about it in response to the Cova crisis, the size and scope of the British state. Well, that's increased dramatically, and what's being called, a radical woke minority that continues to march through British institutions for more on Boris and British politics. Let's turn to is a bill oak shop. She's a former political editor at the Sunday Times I started by asking bill about the state of Boris Johnson's premiership. I think that it is. Fair to say that Boris Johnson's. Administration has. Hit a really difficult patch and you know. Isn't it extrordinary when he achieved? An an unbelievable majority you know against all expectations, and really they only had a few weeks in which to relish that feeling of trial before the corona virus hits, and the handling of the pandemic has been a very widely criticized. You know we have ended up. I think we have the surge worst gas rate in the world from from Carina and his being one u-turn after another. We've got another one today in the only on Sunday at one of our leading cabinet ministers said that it would not be compulsory to wear face masks and short, and now we all told the we'll be illegal requirement, and that is very characteristic old the government's approach to this crisis. They've been too late. To make required changes, you know that has gizzard they have you turned, and of course not help by. The Prime Minister himself was hit very very hard by the virus, and to Cologne time to get back on his feet. You know this is a he. He was in a life, threatening position and the government woes consequentially very weakened for a period. You mentioned that the Johnson government is moving to make these face masks for shoppers mandatory I. THINK THEY FACE A. Hundred pound fine if they gotta shops without Feis mosques, but at the same time on way told the Britain is slowly getting back to its old self that businesses either reopened and travel restrictions. Lifting does all this main? The Brits are to learn to leave covid nineteen I think we have to learn to live with covid nineteen and I would say we should have had begun learning that lot quicker. You know the UK at the moment is a real place. Contrast I live in Oxfordshire about seventy miles from London, and for the first time last week I decided to get the train into loans, and I have been driving list time and I basically had to show the driven train in both directions. I was traveling at what would normally be rush hour peak time going in in the morning and I had the whole carriage, and the won't be on that myself, so I will. Say Small, but there's no need for face off. You've got your exclusive carriage. And Central. Is Much the same. It's a dead zone and yet here in the world's where where I call home and we can mind. It'll town which luckily. was absolutely housing. The big AUDEN's with school. There were a lot of people out in the bounce. So you know we have a real mix pitcher going on by the way, remember that the schools on back. You know this is an extraordinary situation. You know we've got people in big Ordonez in restaurants are. Our children are still not back in school by large. The counterargument to not having that lockdown during April, and my is that you might have seen far more deaths in in Britain it's. It's very lucky for the government that however bad things get. They will always be able to say it would be much worse if we hadn't done. X Y, or said they won't be able to cruise otherwise politically. That is something that they can always fall back on, but I think that all the evidence now shows that it was a big mistake to allow tens of thousands of people every week to continue pouring into the country from some of the worst hit areas overseas. Coming into Heathrow without any checks or any corentin or any restriction. For weeks, so then I mean for months discontinued, and then very belatedly off to the media, worst of the crisis passed, the government changed tack, and and suddenly entered used quarantine measures, but not before all these people had come in and helped increase of viral late
Changing U.S. Political Landscape
"I moderate conversation between Bhatia under Sargon the opinion editor of the forward. And Seth Mandell the executive editor of The Washington Examiner magazine. The program was called the changing. Us political landscape. And what's at stake for American Jews? We are pleased to bring you some of that program now yesterday. Ajc's National Leadership Council received an exclusive briefing from Dr Land Schlieffer the CEO Regeneration Pharmaceuticals and toward the end of the call. He made the points. I hope I'm not misrepresenting. You Hear Lynn. He made the point. That PART OF WHY? America hasn't been a world leader in responding to the corona virus crisis. Far From It is because our political polarization has had almost a paralysing effect on the ability of government to address the primary and secondary issues coming from the pandemic put differently in a certain sense. Our political divide is literally making us so just to lay some groundwork I want to start by asking each of you. How did we get here? How is it that the country that dominated the last century now seems at times like it could tear itself apart by? Let's begin with you. I have a bit of a polarization. Scott's back Anna now what I mean by that is I think that when you look around at our nation more generally this polarization in fact that is so clear to us on. Twitter is so clear in Congress and in the Senate and so clear in the media actually really evaporates as soon as you get out of these sort of centers of chattering class. Political classes is just to say that the tragedy of the polarization in our nation's elites is so much greater because it truly is leaving you know our nation behind it does. We are actually much less polarized. As a nation we have ever been in our history. Polling shows that as a nation we have never been more united than we are over. The major issues at this nation was founded on and so it's deeply tragic to see them at in the media and in political classes. We are others throats really failing to represent the people that we are supposed to be representing set to you kind of agree with that formulation you WanNa take a stab at the original question or you also disagree with my premise here. I think that body is basically right. I think the problem is that there's a perception of partisanship but that perception of partisanship actually has a real effect on what's happening in what goes on and and the formation of policy and things like that you have leaders in alternative media in. Party affiliated party associated media that make a lot of noise that noise that gets picked up by the rest of us in the mainstream media and we sort of broadcast it out and it makes it look and sound like there's a real divide here but in reality on the important thing which is compliance. That divide wasn't really there. It was just an argument. We were having in public. But that's what a democracy is. We were having the argument in public. And the lockdown side. The restrictions were winning the argument and both sides more or less complied with the ramifications of that. So in some ways I do really think it's healthier than it looks but I worry that if we're formulating policy and we're having these national conversations based on the perception of division than the reality matters less than it should so we need to somehow find a way to have the leaders in Congress in media those who set the national debate reflect the same level of division or lack thereof as the general public. Were talking about the vanishing center whether it's actually vanishing kind of out in the districts or it's only vanishing maybe in the halls of Congress to set last point right that might matter more or still matter even if the back home kind of get along but if we're talking about the vanishing center the Center makes me think of consensus issues Fighting Antisemitism and supporting Israel both used to be consensus issues and I think that in some ways they're both disappearing maybe the consensus support for Israel is disappearing a little more obviously than the consensus support for fighting antisemitism. But I think you'd both agree that people are trying to instrumentalise the fight against anti-semitism in a way. That's that's really unhelpful. So Seth we'll start with you. Why are consensus issues like this disappearing the issue that I always return to as something that looks better than the American Jewish Committee is response by? Comparison is what happened with Jeremy Corbyn in the UK and on the eve of the election there was a poll that eighty seven percent of British. Jews considered him antisemitic. And I just remember thinking that that's close as a consensus as I can ever remember. I mean I think the reverse was when maybe eight Ludo mayor it had like a five percent approval rating or something. You had ninety. Five percent of Israelis agreeing wasn't a very happy moment at any time you have countries Jews almost ninety percent agreeing on something that's Unity. That's a form of office and it also means that the political ramifications were not what was important. I had people telling me. Hey look. I'm a lifelong Labour member. I'm not leaving the party but I. I am canvassing for bars.
Breaking Down Super Tuesday's Results
"Have Texas called in the last five minutes by the Associated Press Four Biden which was a slight surprise. I mean this was something where it was looking like a sanders victory up until a few days ago the polls were deadlocked and what happened is in the last three or four days Bernie Bernie Sanders Lost a lot of states that he was slated to win and Joe Biden consolidated a significant chunk of the Democratic Party. So is this a two-horse race? Yeah I mean I think the question is is it a one horse race There there is a possibility that Biden will create an insurmountable lead Going into next week Because one thing that's also very striking if you look at the results is that Biden performed everywhere except for the places that had high proportions of early voting in other words. Four people voted before south. Carolina's results were known and the narrative was that Biden's candidacy was flailing and Bernie was ascendant. So in in everywhere else Biden really over performed in a big way. The other thing that's very important to note is that Sanders argument throughout this campaign has been that. He brings new voters to the table new voters to the ballot box and that simply hasn't been shown by the data and in fact last night everywhere where turnout was up dramatically and it was up dramatically in some key states biden one big so for the narrative that we need a large coalition to beat. Donald Trump in November. The data is showing. That Biden is doing that and Bernie is not and if you're Bernie supporter. I can understand that it's something that's a difficult pill to swallow but it's what. The empirical evidence is showing through these Super Tuesday results. I mean because sound is slightly scary for some voters because of the socialist labeled but he's not really socialist in the sense that we would understand it. That's right I mean. I think the when you think about this from a UK perspective. There's a lot of Corbin. Comparisons Bernie is not Corbin. He's not nearly as far left as Jeremy. Corbyn but the US is not as far left as Britain. The US is right of Britain. And I think what's also crucial to keep in mind here is that the twenty twenty race is going to be decided by six. Maybe seven swing states. And when you look at which ones those are. You're talking Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Arizona. Florida Georgia those states have very little in common culturally. The one thing they have in common is that they're ideologically moderate and so when you look at places like I'm from Minnesota which trump lost by one and a half percent whether Bernie is socialist or not. That label is highly unpopular in the mid west. It's highly unpopular in places that are ideologically moderate. And so I think that you know Bernie was going to face. Some serious roadblocks to winning in November against trump with some of those label. Some of his comments from the past. That wouldn't have played well in the sort of you know bread and butter mid West Swing State voters who are ultimately centrists so Tuesday was going to belong to Bloomberg if we believed Bloomberg. That clearly isn't the case. Is he still in with a chance? And if he's not might he take those vast funds and place them behind some other candidate? Your answer great question. I think this is one of those things where you know for Democrats who have divided opinions on the candidates. I think the last night in America was a victory for Democracy with a small D. Because it showed that money can't buy elections. He spent a half a billion dollars. Five hundred million dollars and lost everywhere except for I think American Samoa. An overseas territory. So what Bloomberg is likely to do. I mean I've seen reports who knows what will happen by senior ports. He's going to reassess his candidacy tomorrow. if he's smart and his advisors are smart. He'll drop out Wednesday morning. Us Time and throw his billions of dollars behind whoever the Democratic nominee is and I think just to you a scale of how rich Michael Bloomberg is. I did the math on this if I gave you. Five thousand dollars a day every day. Three hundred sixty five days a year. I would have had to start doing that in thirty two. Thousand B C Twenty. Two thousand years before the woolly. Mammoth went extinct for you to have as much money as Michael Bloomberg today so he has a lot of cash and that cash is going to go very likely behind. Joe Biden's candidacy in the coming days and very much the sharp end of the Spear Against Donald Trump going into the general election. So before we get onto what I suspect is really very good news. Just a quick chat about the other candidates Elizabeth Warren and you'll see above who are still in the race. I mean seem not for much longer. Yeah I expect. Warren will probably drop out tomorrow. Tulsi Gabbard Should have dropped out months ago. Chelsea Gabbert has a constituency of exactly one person in that person's name has Tulsi Gabbard But you know Warren Warren I. I've been surprised by. She ran a formidable campaign. She's extremely smart and has done a great job in exciting of voters about her plans. So I would expect that there will be a push to get her endorsements For either Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. I also think that the the Democratic nominee would be very wise to pledge to bring Elizabeth Warren at at a minimum as a core adviser for the campaign the administration And possibly as vice presidential candidate or a senior adviser in the I also I mean the piece that I'm writing for the Washington Post. This morning is going to call for Biden to come out with a vice presidential pick now and I think the reason for that is because the party is divided between the sanders farther left wing and the Biden more centrist moderate wing and binding could go a really long way if he announced somebody like Elizabeth Warren Kamala Harris Stacey from somebody who fires up the Progressive Wing of the Party And and causes who are a little further left of bite into say you know what he understands us? He accepts that were part of the coalition to win and he's going to be running the candidacy that speaks to us. Not just to the moderates and of course the bottom line is who can beat trump. And you're of the opinion. That could be done. Yeah I mean I think this is something. Where were if you look at the swing states? That matter in November Biden is somewhat tailor-made for those states And there's been this narrative since two thousand sixteen because the political class so to speak was surprised by trump's victory that there's the secret sauce. That trump has that. He'll win no matter what but if you look at the polls. I mean most of the national polls have Biden up by eight points to nine points against trump and keep in mind. That trump was so worried about biden beating him that he able to get impeached over it. Dry trying to trying to damage Biden. And if you look at trump's tweets he is trying to say you know so. Division on behalf of Bernie saying the Democratic Establishment is trying to Rob Bernie Sanders supporters of their victory. Simply because he thinks that the way he wins either with Bernie candidacy over the divided party. Keep in mind that the the Democratic Establishment did not rob Bernie Sanders of the voters. The voters robbed Bernie Sanders the voters in this time because You know he he. Simply he lost the race You know ran I think fairly squarely one thing. That's very interesting to note going forward if Bernie decides to stay in the race. Even if next Tuesday's results are not favorable for him is that in two thousand sixteen when Bernie Sanders was trailing the delegate count. He said that it should matter. Only if you get a majority of delegates not a plurality he was going to fight to the convention and try to say though pick me as the nominee even if I don't have the most delegates this time around when he's had the most delegates when he's been the lead he said the exact opposite he said. If you have a plurality of delegates you should be the nominee will. We're headed for a scenario? After last night in which Joe Biden goes into convention potentially not with a majority but with a plurality and Bernie Sanders is on the records. Now saying that person should be the nominee so he may end up regretting Those words but it is. It is something that sets a precedent by which even if Biden does not get over the fifty percent threshold. That the rules say you have to. You could have his main opponent on camera many many times saying that effectively. If he's got the plurality he should be the nominee. I mean. A gamer of then Biden may yet beat trump. But we're assuming that this will be a fair fight and of course. There's nothing that you can see him about trump. We do not know how how badly he may try and ski this race. Yeah I mean this is why prognostication is a very dangerous game in In Two thousand twenty is that you have a lot of things that trump is going to be willing to do to break the rules. We we've seen that. I mean he was impeached because he tried to use US foreign policy and hundreds of millions of dollars to get a foreign government to investigate a political opponent in two thousand sixteen. Of course he called to jail his uplift his political opponent And and of course there's going to be the wildcards of Russian interference information more at CETERA. But there's also the wild card of the corona virus and how that's going to affect the race which causes some serious uncertainty forecasting months if not weeks into the future and we don't know how that's going to shake out but yes I mean I think if you're looking at places where trump is vulnerable and where he needs to win. Joe Biden is the candidate who is more like voters in those states than Bernie Sanders. I mean is something where you know in Minnesota where I'm from a neighboring Wisconsin. Both States Democrats need to win if they WanNa win and twenty twenty. Those states are not the ones calling for a socialist revolution outside of potentially progressive core in the urban centers. And what Biden did last night. Was He brought suburban voters to the polls and those people are the people who propelled the Democrats to the twenty eighteen victory in the house. So you know it's about building. A coalition of Progressives ideological moderates and even some Republicans who thank you know what trump is not a safe pair of hands to have when the country is facing a crisis like it is with corona virus. I think that might be the argument going forward. Brian. Thank you very much indeed. That's Brian Class in. Incidentally it's the first time I've seen him smile since two thousand and

"A license join me earlier in the program from NPR she's also a familiar face on fox news talking about twenty twenty the Democrats and much more here's part of my conversation with Mara okay where to begin let's let's start with New Hampshire okay and your response your reaction your analysis now that were a bit removed from what happened about where this race currently stands I think the race currently stands with one candidate who seems to have consolidated the left lane of the party that's Bernie Sanders and the center lane is filled with candidates and sap lane has not coalesced around a single alternative to Sanders he's been winning with twenty two percent of the vote twenty five percent of the vote much much less that he got last time remember New Hampshire twenty sixteen a bit help be calorie Clinton by twenty two percent two got something like sixty percent of the vote what New Hampshire told us this time is a lot of that code for Bernie Sanders last time was anti Hillary it wasn't necessarily pro Sanders because that though didn't just go to another left wing candidate Elizabeth Warren get when people to catch any club which are it tells you that Sanders is the leader he has the most plausible path to get a plurality of delegates just what we see now but the big question is can the center left coalition around one person so let's discuss coalescence first on the progressive side you mentioned Elizabeth Warren she put out at this appeal basically pleading with her supporters earlier saying I need money and I need it now to stay viable through super Tuesday is she don it is done if he can't win somewhere where is she going to win that's a question I mean she was not just competing in New Hampshire he was from Massachusetts message right candidates have a built in advantage that mediate the share of media market with New Hampshire Bernie Sanders is also a neighbor but not the kind of neighbor that people from Massachusetts are so people really knew Alyssa formed in New Hampshire on a voted for her in fourth place and she also put a huge amount of time and effort into Iowa a massive ground game she came in distant third then really stumbled I mean fourth place in Iowa a in in New Hampshire rather is is really catastrophic for her and that's your point is right I look ahead to the next couple states and then super Tuesday where do you see a you know low hanging fruit to be plucked by Elizabeth Warren to actually know where I don't really see nowhere nowhere I don't see one do you think he might want her to stick around just to to eat out aggressive voters so it doesn't get easier for Bernie no yes if that was true but I don't think her voters work all going to Bernie I'd like early on progresses decided if we want to choose between two left wing candidates let's choose the guy who's been around the longest and has never wavered in his belief in our again that may pick Bernie what he started shedding voters remember Elizabeth Warren was once at the top of the heap at the polls when he started hitting voter she showed them to Amy Klobuchar and people to catch so that was pretty interesting this is not has not been a neatly dividing ideological race very important point and I just add one note on that yeah so I saw morning console call where they ask democratic voters for their second choice right to the got their favorite but if not him or her then who and among Joe Biden's supporters next on the depth chart number two choice was Bernie Sanders and rally for Bernie Sanders yeah yeah everyone keeps saying well if if these people all get together then they can stop burning and it's just not quite that simple but it is very obvious that the establishment of the party the center left they're getting extremely worried about Bernie Sanders James Carville is out there shouting to anyone who will listen this is a disaster in the making listen to cut five he was Carville on TV there's a certain part of the Democratic Party wants us to be a cult I'm not interested in being in a call I'm I'm seventy five years old I'm just not a not a very cold to person the only thing the plane began nine states in the abyss if the Democratic Party and if we go to where the British labor party if we nominate German Coleman is going to be to end today I am I'm scared to death I really am the end of days and of course the Jeremy Corbyn references to Bernie Sanders Bernie firing back in cut for Hey was it all the respect is a political hack who said very terrible thing was what he was working for Clinton against Barack Obama Vicki said some of the same things we are taking on troll the Republican establishment call gold and the democratic establishment but at the end of the day the grass roots movement that we are putting together of young people of working people of people of color want real change
New Hampshire Primary Election Results 2020
"Let's return now to the results of the New Hampshire primary key win for Bernie Sanders terrible night for Joe Biden. The first one either while while sound is is so far at least winning the race for Democrats supporters can he convert that into the wider political appeal that he would need to defeat. Donald Trump in November. Joining me to discuss that and some of the day's other top stories are Vincent Vinny. UK correspondent for Euronews and political analyst and former BBC political correspondent. Kara okay. I'm carol normally. If you label anybody in American politics anything in American politics a socialist you might as well call them Communists Ernest. It's it's it's completely fatal and you can see candidate sanders going up against trump and socialists. Being about the only thing Donald Trump says for the next six months absolutely Leeann I think socialism socialist does have different connotations in the United States. It's still something where Donald Trump can successfully whip hop certainly a part part of the American electorate against him. I think what's interesting here is that yes last night was a good night for Bernie Saunders. But he was only a fraction ahead of Pete. Booty judge and we've seen Amy Klobuchar also showing very strongly. There's quite a long way to go in this race Bernie Sanders. This is in many ways. The Jeremy Corbyn of American politics. He's got this very powerful loyal. Fan Base significant pecan grassroots support activists who go out there and campaign for him but he's a very divisive figure. He's divisive even within the Democratic Party. And as I think you suggested that there are many even within the Democratic Movement who think that he is just too left-wing to socialist too radical to win over the number of votes the center ground to win votes back from Donald Trump. I mean Vincent. Those I had some voters being interviewed yesterday. Who Democrats who said? Look if it's if it's Bernie. We're not GONNA win. You might as well not even have the election because trump's in trump's GonNa win the election is there that sense and I suppose there is a parallel here to something we'll discuss later in the Labor Party in the UK. The sounders does very well with activists goes very well with committee diehard Democrats who are going to vote Democrat anyway but it's that question of whether he can win over those voters in the middle the ones who voted for a bomb but then voted not for trump as a two things on this. The first is yeah. There's obvious parallel with Jeremy copen hip. There's an obvious parallel with Donald Trump. Someone who wasn't a Republican came in as the fringe is candidate managed to get a strong movement behind him that really supports them then took over the party. And we're seeing the same thing with Bernie Saunders in. He has this movement that he carried forward Ford from the last election. He never ready suspended parts of his campaign the going through the last couple of years and now he is. He's still registered for the next senatorial race as an independent not even as a Democrat. And so he's coming. He's reregistered as Democrats run. He is running away with it. In these first two states and for the other candidates you know De de Joe Biden is basically what Bush was last time round. You Know Jeb. Bush even brought his. You know his brother former two-time president his dad on board the campaign and still couldn't make a breakthrough so we're seeing that same thing with Joe Biden. We'll see whether he he's GonNa Mention Obama even more in the build up to South Carolina but really now he is pretty much out of this this and if the Democrats want to get moderate candidate will clover shirt. You've got Warren. You've got pete. They and Bloomberg is well. Of course it's not forget they now need to pick one one of them and the others need to fall away. Otherwise they're going to be so split that Bernie Sanders is going to run away with this and the second thing to say is there is an ugly side to the Sanders Campaign Ryan as well. We saw it again. Last night. Cynthia Nixon the actress from sex in the city who try to become New Yorker Governor recently and is now a Bernie supporters. She had to shut down a crowd out who booed when Hillary Clinton's name was mentioned. And we're seeing there. Is this kind of vindictive side and Bernie's campaign the Bernie Bros.. Who are turning off mainstream even Democrats so it remains to be seen if Bernie can bring parties together because there are people unhappy with his conduct? The last election in Calvin mentioned some of the sort of people seen seen as the middle ground candidates. The aim Who did very well yesterday? But he's done well in in both the people around him seem to be trying to frame him now now as twenty twenty s version of Obama as the outside of that no one had heard of. Who's going to storm through the race? But I mean is he is he. Is he in Alabama a Buddha Jiji. You're talking about now. We'll look. He has clearly got charisma. He's young Buddy lacks experience I think it's very difficult to see how he could win over those saunders supporters. Just as. It's very difficult indeed to see. How Bernie Ernie Saunders can win over those that larger number of motors? I think what's interesting if you look at what happened last night Saunders was the victor there were about a third of the votes went to Saunders Elizabeth Warren on the more radical wing of the party more than half went to the others who more or less centrist. But as Vincent was pointing out They've got to make up their minds. Because if that memorial memorial vote is split between several different candidates Then there is a strong possibility that saunders come through the middle. I think we do have to watch out for Michael Bloomberg Berg who has fought this rather on docks campaign of skipping housed on all these primaries but his spending he spent since the beginning of the year more than three hundred million dollars on advertising and advertising campaign. That's getting through too much larger numbers than and these political events which perhaps only capture a small amount of the electorate now. He's a bit of an unknown quantity But he we'll certainly feel looking at the fact that there's no other really clear front runner at the moment that he still has to be in there with Jones. Obviously we will learn more. We we get to Super Tuesday at the beginning of March not may well be the death knell for Joe Biden. If he's not able to to to get anywhere but we never parallels British and American politics and in the general election in the UK. Back in December. You bumped into people said the choice I've been given is a hard right conservative government or hard left Labor government Vote is actually. Don't feel they sit in the middle in the end of the vote is did break left him right pretty much consistently if you go through that in America if it sounded Zondo's trump then what happens to those middle ground. American voters is the reason. No third party candidate has ever done anything other than screw up the mathematics the electoral college so presumably they all just going to have to pick a side. Yeah people always you know early on campaign people worried about Tulsi Gabbard splitting the Democrat. Vote but but I think just to go back on one part of your question. A we call Joe Biden now on one thing is that he polls extraordinary high with black voters and has ninety-nine percent name recognition in America. When we get to the next one which is South Carolina very You know African American state. He might surge ahead that it was interesting that he actually. He left New Hampshire last night before the result and he had a rally in South Carolina and then with Super Tuesday much more diverse state. So he could pull stuff back Because because you know Pete Bootleg does very poorly with black voters. Amy Club shells also good issues as a time as a lawyer in in terms of criminal issues that she prosecuted And so do you know. It's not absolutely so not yet but yeah it is for a lot of people. You Know Bernie. Democrats will have the same problem that Republicans had with trump. Is it. Do you just hold your nose and vote for him can burn. He put through a message of we have to get trump out which is what Joe Biden has been trying to do. You might not think I've got all these you know snazzy new policies but I'm just the take back the soul of America get trump out and what what the camp has to do behind Bernie is to really say say you know you have to hold your nose and vote for him just to get trump out but his policies and particularly an attack. I heard last night. The hadn't heard before with Bernie is you know. He took his honeymoon in the. US are before the Iron Curtain fell now in America that is going to play so bad and I think we're going to hear a lot more about that in the next couple couple of weeks
Ashley Blaker: Goy Friendly
"Talk about some. I'm pretty heavy issues. Israel Iran Patriot of Jews. So our next guest is a pretty big leap for us. Ashley Blaker is Jewish standup comedian. He is the first Orthodox Fox Jewish comedian to be given his own BBC. Show Ashley Blaker. GOYA's guide to Judaism which returned to the air in October. Two Thousand Nineteen. Now he's in New York for his latest off off Broadway. Show Ashley Blaker Goi friendly which premieres at the Soho playhouse. On February third and runs through February twenty third. While his previous off-broadway production strictly unorthodox was tailored for Jewish audiences. This one he says is not just for the Jews. It tells the story of how Ashley's close friendship with Muslim. Comedian Imron on. UCS completely changed his life with antisemitic incidents on the rise around the globe and even here in New York actually hopes to make the audience laugh but also understand stand a little bit more about their Jewish neighbors Ashley. Welcome to our studio. Thank you for having me so I have to ask you right out of the gate. anti-semitism is not funny. So how how do you address that topic with humor. Well the reality is I think he's anything can be funny. So I'll let you come to Louis showing judge whether I make. It isn't about antisemitism. I should say that there is actually a section is a band. Semitism thought. I think the more interesting is the fact that that when antisemitism is on the rise there are two ways of dealing with. This is a way of kind of hunkering down. Just going. We're we're now gonNA stick to ourselves and and try and protect ourselves and put up the security barriers and let's have lots of armed guards on the on the door in social ones bags and all of that stuff all you can kind of outreach. As it were and try and engage with the outside world and that's what my shows about about the latter it's about reaching out to the outside world and in a way this makes wants a comedy show. You know hopefully nonstop funny. Sound sound incredibly dry but Hopefully demystify Judaism a little bit. That's certainly one of the aims. Okay well I would say you could do both right. Do the security see the undercover getting having no security either. All kind of you know very good at that accused but I actually my playbill. I wrote a Performance note and for Bates Him. But I said something about how you know very good dividing ourselves as a as an in one of the things into I enjoy doing you mentioned my show strictly and also those I I love bringing choose together because we figured it kind of separating ourselves in so many different ways you know on the whole joke about the Jewish man who lands on a desert island and he builds two synagogues one ones that he'll go to one that he wouldn't ever be seen dead and that's like what we're like but I do think that there is it is an important time to actually reach out a little bit and we can. I think sometimes certainly not in any way suggesting that we. We are in any way a foot four and symptom of course but I sometimes think that actually being too insular. Isn't that helpful. Listen so now you are from the UK so well the Labor Party. I have to ask you about the Labor Party. I'm afraid But it's often regarded as the political liberal party of choice by many Jews in Great Britain. And I'm curious how you dealt with the last election and whether or not you felt politically homeless as I kept had reading about the Jewish community. There didn't myself but I'm sure other people did and I think that yes certainly in the post for many Jews the Labor faulty will have. I've been there home by just as much as the Conservative Party would be for many Liberal Democrat. We have quite a different political system. Should know to to to the Americans as many but yes I mean. It was incredible. What happened over the last few years and how symtas I'm just rose and seem to not be dealt with toll within the Labor Party in? Yeah it was a terrible thing we still really really been dealt with properly gone away. Yeah I know there were. There were several vile things said many vile things said ed by Labour politicians but then also Jeremy Corbyn himself was talking about the lack of irony that many British Jews seem to have. I don't know if you recall that particular. Yes it was Avia. Yeah it was a video I think from a while ago. Actually but he had yes he had said something. And there's a lot of these kind of allusions I think is because they. They caught clever then. They don't outright. This isn't the foul right then marking the street saying killed the Jews. It's a very allusive. Quite clever thing of of Hinson these particular weight alluding that Jews and Israel inflating the to and to you know the whole talking about antisemitism and anti Zionism also that that things that really came along with the Labor Party and I saw something videos of people saying no no we. We're not intimately to we like the right to choose. I think there's that thing of the good news and the bad news and I think that's a really good. Jews has ones March against Israel and kind of write letters to the Guardian saying that we support Sanctioned bedia smell that kind of thing uh-huh and then the ninety five percent of the badges. I mean that's clearly terrible things so it's been a really dark period and I didn't know it'll be interesting to see in the the next four five years. How things change? Have you tried to address it with humor. There over showed. I just did a toll in opened in in May with my friend Imran you mentioned draymond so imminent. He did a tour together called profit sharing actually breaking news in profit sharing seek clever title. And it's not address head on there are other people addressing this head on and the the truth is the way to look on twitter five minutes especially around the time the election to see that kind of Echo Chamber people. Don't WanNa hear they. You know you you tweet. Something about Labor Jeremy Corbyn and immediately comes back. This prepared list of twenty times. Jeremy Corbyn has both a motion ocean in parliament. That's been helpful to community Blah Blah Blah say. No one listens to each other anymore. People just spout the same thing. So I'm not sure engaging in that kind of way addressing head on is that helpful she because people just don't want to listen right. I'm sure it's the same here with trump and I'm sure there are people who are vehemently say one one thing you don't want to listen to the side. Yes that is. That is a problem that area. So I think that's something we've seen a lot particular around brexit and all these issues as we've had in the UK and the F. But so my show anyway. Mike show look comedy show. That's the the the main PARV. So I'll tell you briefly I mean essence shows. It's about yeah. Tell us about the show but then I also want to hear more about Enron and your friendship so the show about my friend she was Enron said. So that's the kind of I think in film in terms they call that the macguffin. He's kind of you know that you heard that term. I'm not familiar with that. So it's like using the original star wars. I think C. Three Po an onto d two of the macguffin that they're the ones like sent off into onto the desert and enter tattooing. They've got the messages item. Thank you the whole plot revolves from. Then there's no actually about them but it starts from them so in a way money's the macguffin hit because is a true story we're good friends we went untold together. And he's very interested custody my life he didn't know much about Judaism me belly of June. We spent many hours together in the call. He was always drawing because he he's Muslim. Couldn't in claiming been drinking and he's always asked me questions and I kind of wanted to teach him about Judaism. But where do you start. We've got six hundred thirteen commandments. It's too long to the call I didn't want to spend money on guests so I thought well I teach him about the Ten Commandments. And we started looking at the Ten Commandments. And I unrealized. They're not that practical you know he doesn't have an ox next all so there's no need to worry about not coveting it and I so I could. Maybe set myself challenge of coming up with my own ten commandments. That I could be a bit more practical. But they could actually explain what it's like to be an Orthodox Jew in two thousand twenty and in a way. It was my friendship with him. That made me reconsider my Judaism. Because she had I've been living as an Orthodox Jew for the best part of twenty years but it's only when an outside comes along install challenging us at you start having to think about it you start thinking about your love. So that's what the shows about and it's about me going through these ten commandments. My New Ten Commandments. antiquing this to him okay. So do you mind sharing a few of the talk commanded if you're the one of them is thou shalt develop obsessive compulsive disorder okay. She's an integral Paulsville so shoot as But we cover branch of Judy. Check that box right exactly. So we cover a lot of these areas we cover kosher food and living in a Jewish area. We talk about the curse of praying public and this covers a lot of ground really comes a lot of ground in the show and then And then the story I keep finished. The story has a continuation because of how Im- reacted and then what we went off did something together which I don't want to spoil because that's the narrative But it's a pretty funny chairman. I it really is. I'm super proud of it. So you say I did. This show could street Lennox. It was aimed at a Jewish audience. All Jews knock. He's also dogs. Reform Perform Conservative unaffiliated. But Still Jews and I think it's a really. I really wanted to do something. Everyone could cutting joy That would be in a language WIGGs. Everyone can understand but the is serious does not scrimp on the jokes atone. It's the funniest show of ever done this by miles miles because I've already but still called the serious stuff when we do discuss antisemitism and there are some real takeaways well foam it excellent zone. The show's name. Is Ashley. Blaker friendly it's at the Soho playhouse here in New York City from February third to twenty-third. Thank you for joining us. Thank
Future of the Labour Party, ICC Investigation, Black-Jewish Relations
"Liam whore is the Europe editor for moment magazine. It has been covering Labor's antisemitism awesome scandal since two thousand fifteen. He joins us now to help us understand. What's next for that party for British Jews and for the United Kingdom Liam? Thank you so much for joining us. I thank you for inviting me for the most part analysts are chalking up. Labour's defeat to having the wrong message on Brexit but there is is no doubt that Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour leader was historically unpopular. And no doubt that a part of that unpopularity was due to the anti eighty. Semitism that he let grow in the party. Are there grumblings on the far left that Jews are responsible for his defeat. And that's something that British Jews are worrying about. I think what we've seen since the election is people on the far left at Labor constituency meetings and online researching the British Jewish Institutions. Such as the Board of Deputies or indeed the chief rabbi Were in fact stories or conservatives I should say and innocent intervening in the election on their side. That's what he wanted to the things that the board of Deputies hope that the future Labour leader will expunge from the and that is one reason why they've come forward with the ten pledges in recent days. You mentioned the list of ten pledges that the Board of Deputies the kind of umbrella Ella Organisation for British Jews that the Board of Deputies released just a couple of days ago they basically say that these are the ten things or perhaps the first ten things the Labor Party needs to adopt needs to do in order to heal its relationship with the Jewish community. And we don't need to go through them one by one but broadly what are these ten pledges calling calling for. Well as you say broadly the first thing is that Outstanding Cases Anti Semitism in the Party needs to be resolved and the discipline under reprocessed to have to be made independent again and sh- interference from the leadership team sort of around. Jeremy Corbyn in this process must come to an end thereafter. What's I think? What's important folder? The board is to reestablish a working relationship with the leader of your party after all when a function is to be a conduit between the panoply of organizations they represent and and the government Foreign bodies and so forth and finally just add that one of the things they want to see done is that the full I h Ra the definition of Anti Semitism. With all of these examples applauses will be introduced and used in disciplinary cases within the party. That was a major eric. Eric disputes within the party last year or earlier this year. And that's one of the things I want to get done here at. AJC We're very proud of having been a part of authoring during the era definition but for our listeners who aren't familiar with the definition and why it's so important. Can you just say a word about that. Well because of dispute within the party I should say making making more specific is that People on the far left of the party were concerned that this definition would prevent them from Criticizing sizing Israel or Israeli policy. Which of course? He's not well. The definition does he's indicate ways in which rhetoric concerning Israel Israel can tip over into antisemitism I believe for example if people would say that the actions of the Israeli government towards what's the Palestinians in some way resemble the actions of Not Towards Jews in Europe in the nineteen forties So really they had nothing to worry about. But this is all tied to a much larger augmented. It was rambling on throughout the entirety of Jeremy Comex leadership of the Liberal Party concerning anti Israel rhetoric break and wearing that becomes at. You haven't ISM or for example. If someone challenging British Jews were to somehow hold them accountable for the actions actions of the Israeli government. I think that would also be seen as anti Semitic under the IRA definition which is really important. Considering the way that often we've seen across Europe and perhaps in Britain specifically people tried to do that. Try to discredit jus. I think there's a slur that has cropped up in the UK. Zayas people who you you know. They're interested in defaming and demeaning. They don't really have any way to do it except to try to tie them to Israel so I think it's important that the Labor Party adopts the definition in order to make very clear to its constituents that that kind of thing is anti Semitic well quite an in recent days we have an example of that which is that There's no sort of I would say online activists By the name of Rachel cousins. Who goes by the alias? Rachel Swindon who has a following of tens of thousands of people on twitter. It's unclear whether she is or is not in fact a member of the party but she's nonetheless very close to the sort of cold and leadership and in response to the boards pledges. She tweeted that as I previously said that the board was essentially a conservative organization and also came out with is her own or Or perhaps found only list of pledges for the board which more or less argue that the board had to come out and condemn Israeli military action. In the West Bank thank or condemn what she calls the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian communities in in the West Bank in other words as you said holding British Jews accountable for the actions. uh-huh office ready government. which if they at the very least a dangerous road to go down and she somebody who has previous four in this regard having tweeted about the rothschilds and the so-called influence in the past so the point of this is to say that changing the Leo Party is only the first step? They won't be root and branch Tusk to erotic antisemitism from the Ponti it is always interesting to see how those people who take part in what is called the new antisemitism this kind of attacking Jews shoes on the basis of what Israel does how at the end of the day they are also just old antisemites in the way that she brings up Rothschild conspiracies and things like that. I wanted to ask you about one of the pledgers. In particular number eight is entitled engagement with the Jewish community to be made via its main representative groups and then in explains Labor must engage with the Jewish community Levi its main representative groups not through fringe organizations and individuals. That sounds like it's referencing. Something like there's some history there. Can you tell us a little bit about that. Sure I mean I mean Jeremy Corbyn is somebody who was throughout the time he was leader of the party. Never very much interested in the views and concerns all mainstream British Jewish ortganizations. He has historically been in most of the time that he was leader. Always much more comfortable with what the board calls fringe organizations for example He wasn't much interested in The Jewish Labor movement which is sort of the mainstream Organiz ation all Jews in Labor Party or affiliated with the party rather Jewish Voice Labor whose membership I think could fit into a phone box. I mean if you look at their rallies and meetings the the next in the Guardian newspaper. It's always the same ten fifteen twenty people who assigning these latches At the same time At one of the times when the relationship between Jerry in British Jewish groups was was at his lowest he attended a Saito organized by a group called choose. Who are legitimate tendency in the Jewish community and represent people who have felt themselves felt this affiliated pushed away from the mainstream left-wing clock but they themselves I'm sure would say the reps and also a a very small number of people also Jeremy's also been affiliated with sort of anti-zionist ultra Orthodox people who live in his community but he did not have a working relationship with the board he did not have a working relationship with the chief rabbi in so far as I know and not that he had a working relationship with with the Jewish Leadership Council? which sort of is a you might say a rival organization to the Board of Deputies also a representative group so this point eight? This engagement group is really about the board wanting to reestablish Atlantic communication and a working relationship with the party which is sort of one of the sort of raison. d'etre foil for the board. It sells I'm going to move on in just a moment. Kind of forward-looking questions but there is one more retrospective effective thing that I'm curious about. which is what are we to make of people who are real friends of the Jews or certainly seem to be who campaigned for Labor in this last election? I'm thinking of people for example like London. Mayor Sadeq Khan who has said all the right things about anti Semitism done many of the things about about antisemitism but nevertheless tried to make Jeremy Corbyn the next prime minister should we hold that against him. I case if someone likes to Econ we should not hold that against against him and I think I think you know people who reunite kind of position which is to say supposedly oh party but not supposed to Jeremy Corbyn were very torn because the reality is the British electoral system that much like the Americans. There's it ends up becoming a two-party system Elections to the House Elsa parliament more or less function like elections to the House representatives. There are six hundred fifty constituencies. Each insurance becomes its own kind of to race and in many any of them the racist between Labour and the Conservatives and so sort of I would say anti anti Semitic Labor supporters found themselves in a very Korea unenvious position of having to decide. Do I vote for the Conservatives and put into power party that I oppose my entire adult life likely. ooh Aw do I grit my teeth and vote for the Labor Party on the basis that I am somehow voting for the Party and voting for the candidate in my constituency. But somehow not Jeremy Corbyn and I you know I as a journalist. I love about the free in this regard. So I don't have to make such compromises but I nonetheless feel for people who know people like I said Connor or you could answer this people like just flips. Who is now a candidate for leadership who it's not about Anti Semitism in the pause About the kind of compromises. They had to make that time. So no we we. We shouldn't hold I bet against As you intimate in about a month the voting will begin to elect a new leader of Labor this kind of an interesting quirk for our American listeners. The voting voting will actually stay open for more than a month through the beginning of April and people can vote. I guess anytime in that span. Who are the names that we need to know who are likely Lee to win the election and are any of them going to be you know kind of on their own? The answer to Labour's antisemitism problem tackling the antisemitism crisis is not as simple as for lack of a better way of putting removing the head from the snake Having Jeremy Corbyn leader suddenly a good thing because the cost was it the crisis could not be it's solution But in terms of who will become the next leader There this prison time probably two main candidates on the one hand you have Rebecca Long Bailey who is perceived to be the continuity Corbin candidate the date.
Who Is Isaac Levido?
"At the end of this month. The United Kingdom will leave the European Union and in so doing fulfill the key election pledge of conservative prime minister. Boris Johnson. To you get brexit done. We have followed that. He's paralyzed blocked. Dinner Lean capable of functioning as Anaconda that swallowed the neither moving one way on the other. He's lean except of course that brexit will not get done on January thirty first Brexit exit will not get close to done on January thirty first if and when Brexit can truly be said to have got done it will be still further pointless tedious Diaz wasted years from now but none of this matters to the Prime Minister and party. Who promised to do it? What does matter at least to them is that they won a thumping majority in last month's general election for that the Tories Oak considerable thanks and have doubtless already paid considerable?

UK Labour Party to Begin Contest to Succeed Corbyn as Leader
"The starting gun was probably fired this weekend in the race to become the next leader of Britain's main opposition Labor party it has already become a crowded field with each candidate trying to offer a clean break with the past yet unwilling to upset the Labor hardcore. He seems to be the only people he wanted to vote for them. In last month's general election Who wants to begin? I I let me start with you. Whoever takes over from Jeremy Corbyn does so from a position of absolute rock? Bottom for the party. Don't don't they let let's sort of set the scene I well. Let's hope so From their point of view that it's rock bottom because sinking further would not be a good thing and that's the spirit I think. Yes I mean. Obviously the last election was a disaster. I mean particularly I think a lot of the figures that came out made it pretty clear that in fact the Tory vote hadn't uneven increased that much it was more that the Labor voted collapsed. There was a very big problem for the neighbor policy. And I think a lot of that looking at the polling was to do with Jeremy Corbyn personally there was so say Brexit was a big issue for them But I think overwhelmingly it was coming out in the polls the person she with him say almost anybody who replaces aces him is kind of starting with the level of improvement there and in a sense brexit policy now moves into different states because of course we know Brexit is going to happen on the thirty first of January. And then there's a we're going to move into negotiation stage on withdraw and all of that now that kind of changes the mechanics of that for Labour leader. They can't anymore. There's not much political to revoke cool. Remain or anything like that or they just Phillips did talk yesterday about rejoin as a future possibility But I think really it changes the mechanics. It's about them talking. Just opposing do want this posted as an opposition government opposing what the Conservatives are doing so. We're probably going to hear it. Also talk about you know Brexit is going wrongly their mishandling it etc so we have the runners and writers stepping up Mary ranging from Remain human rights lawyer. Who is a shadow? A shadow secretary He campaigned hard for a second referendum. To someone who wants to think about rejoining to cookie cookie cutter copies but in the female email form of the Jeremy Corbyn style which went down so badly with the voters. Well I think we have to look really whether it did go down so well so badly with the voters because on the one hand yes. There appears to have been an antipathy towards Jeremy Corbyn personally but when you look at the demographic of the Labor Party vote what you see is actually quite a big enthusiasm if not for Corbin personally then for his policies very left wing very old-fashioned socialist policies of nationalization subsidies all sorts of things that we haven't seen in for decades they were very popular with a generation who were in there in the earliest stages of their youth during the financial crisis. And I think this this battle as it were for the soul of the Labor Party. It's not over yet And we're looking at the moment almost only half of it in terms of the candidates who have declared so far who want to be leader. Because we're looking at center center Yes cure storm to the left. But this the there's a big gap there And we have to ask whether this is whether whether the the old style Blair. It's do they exist anymore. They certainly don't exist very much in the parliamentary party as it was elected elected at the At the last election. But where is somebody. For instance like Yvette Cooper. Where is the where the noise is coming from? Somebody who's been incredibly vocal on the sidelines from his privileged perch in New York David milliband where where people who can influence that wing of the party. We haven't heard from them yet. Does that mean that that's over. The Labor is actually varying not exactly to Corbin awesome but that is sort of more the shape of the future then Blairism or any of them up to it Mary. Well I mean. I saw some comments yesterday which was the first day really. Really of sort of Campaigning on Sunday. Talk shows where the was some comment among sort of professional political pundits. Who said actually this could shape up to be quite a sort of a thoughtful election representing a lot of different currents in the Labor abor party But of course that has its plusses and minuses. We saw during the Tory party leadership. Election there again. You had some very different prince strands and what you've come at. What you've come out with is Boris Johnson and the right as far as Brexit is concerned? But maybe not as far I things consent feather appear to be two enormous jobs here. Alex which I is the the idea of rebuilding shattered party which does does not have a unified core. And secondly won't you have rebuild shattered party. You have to be strong enough to take on the Conservatives and not only beat them but beat them so much that you bring back. All the voters deserted them for the Conservatives in the last election in that is a double task of of huge huge proportions and bring about more than the ones who deserted them because remember Labor already were in a minority so actually doing back even more than their deserted voters says and and in specific places it is a tremendous task and it's always been difficult for Labor in the last few years particularly. There are huge divides in their own. Vote Their their membership is actually overwhelmingly remain But of course in those northern seats they lost Brexit was a problem for them because a lot of Labor members in those seats are are actually much more leave so these people want something very different than how united policy that is so split on. Those different issues is a tremendous challenge. I think mirror some actually quite promising candidates but it will be very interesting to see where it goes at the moment the polls have Kissed her in the lead And I mean you know it will be interesting you see. Of course everything can be shaken up during the campaign. Go and tell me who you are promising. Candidates his Co. your is it possible leader. Well do you think kissed has a certain competence to him actually I think it's interesting to see some younger people from the left of the party. Stepping up people like Clive Lewis I would say just phillips as a slightly more centrist candidate who who is reasonably credible And you know they're all these different voices coming up. Who are quite interesting and it will be a big choice flavor which those they go for Os? I think Angela. Rayner is very promising. Who I think is standing for deputy leader From the kind of soft mid left of the party is like find degrees between centralism. Gobert is that they have Mary would what are your thoughts on on what Alex just said. I mean the mentioning of a storm is seen as the leader at the moment the leading candidate despite the fact that he is called Sir. He is absolutely very very keen to storch stress the fact that he has very humble working class backgrounds his mother was a nurse and he just happens to have done the right thing. Some are suggesting that he's the right leader. But I the four years to Leo Leo few years too late Yes. I think there is some truth in that And I don't think it's just the Sir that his kissed Armas Problem I think think he would be seen by as it were younger. Newer members of the Labor Party who joined because of Corbin He will be seen as the establishment candidate and somebody that they they will not support You know it's been it's been said ever since Labor's loss in in the election that They've got not just this huge task to unite the party. But do they will uniting leader. Actually come from the London establishment. This is the this is what kissed on represents percents. I don't know if you're a woman over forty. Five apparently secure has rather something delicious about in this Christmas dinners. But you know if you're not a AH London metropolitan women over forty five. He might not be your bag but just looking at where the next leading light could come from Alex it when I look at the way that the United Kingdom is at the moment reminds me of France about three or four years ago when the Socialists collapsed and the main political structure just didn't it didn't seem to know what to do and and then suddenly Emmanuel macron comes in with almost a brand new party a brand new voice and a bit of razzle-dazzle to boot they. They sort of tried this in the United Kingdom last year with a I can't even remember change. Could change something lasted about ten minutes. But it was one of those little flag-waving flagwaving harassing come on. Let's have a breaking the mold. Oh we is the United Kingdom so stuck in a moment here that it contacting make space for foot for newness and change that that way. I think there's a tremendous problem with the current setup half the effective two party system which had the Lib Dem's done better? We might not be talking about tea fussy system but we really are now because because they didn't break through and as Fayez Change. UK The Independent group all of these various sorts of incarnations of of trying this kind of mass challenge absolutely kind of founded and just did not take flight tool But there is a problem in that we have a social system which is a is a funny compromise permits anyway and that we have a system that was designed refused to vote for an individual. MP I mean actually policy names weren't even on the ballot paper until the night at the end of the nineteen sixties. You just had to vote for your your local. MP and you have to find out who they were vote for the candidate you like so now. We have quite strong party affiliations. Everything is very whipped. All of that and those names are on the ballot paper and yet we're we're still voting for the individuals so there's a sort of complicated compromise I think going on in terms of what you want what you should vote. And they're sort of how we got a party. She system grafted on to a kind of individual constituency. first-past-the-post system and I think that is bringing up these events contradictions and great difficulties for actually eighty four. Both big parties going forward. I mean you know the Conservatives also have a problem demographically in the future and that they're under fifty The fifties actually the majority labor in most cohorts now which is much more extreme? It used to be so as they're kind of older more brexit voters pulse on and They how are they going to speak to younger. Generation who don't own homes don't have job security don't have pensions and therefore so traditional conservative values. This don't necessarily speak to them and it's going to be for them. I think there's another question about why the UK can't produce contact figure. which is that? We don't have a presidential the system And even though this past election was fought I would say on much. More presidential style lines. The was corbin versus versus says Boris Johnson Nonetheless To campaign in a presidential election where people have direct votes for individuals then an individual candidate can make that sort of mark between parties or different from parties setting themselves above those structures. We don't have that possibility ability.

"It was election day yet again overseas and joining us this morning is our friend Simon one from our London bureau Simon thank you for joining us how are you today good morning very well thanks may I tell you you know we circled the dates here for elections in it seems like at things can become fluid quite quickly over the U. K. big elections yeah last week we know Boris Johnson with against Jeremy Corbyn but who else well when I was on the ballot last week what happened yes he was Britain's third general election in the space of five years and if that sounds like quite a lot not because it is and I was asked to polling stations speaking to voters here in London while mom was telling me as we stood speaking in the cold December rate in a north London street he said he was fed up of it and she'd had enough of politics but despite that tens of millions of people did make it to the polling stations very RAF Britain to have a winter election this is the first one in December and I think ninety six years I'm and yet people are still motivated to engage in the political operations here because a big question with this election was well firstly what is the country's gonna look like for the next five years and secondly what should happen about brexit three and a half years after the referendum had when Brits wasted leave the European Union what kind of brexit divorce should happen if any the total well the prime minister Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party sets out campaigning around the country saying that greeted deal and with the E. U. all the divorce to take place but they struggle to get it through parliament today would say give us a stronger hand and we will and that would get brexit done and that you know you never know quite what I at this early stage after election why people voted the way they did but it seems that that message may well be more struck a call with a loss of that is because Boris Johnson ended up winning a much a landslide and he'd be returned to parliament with a majority of eighty seats which is really significant to give him a great deal of power and so the bottom line is after three and a half years of deadlock and gridlock is Boris Johnson calls it actually now Britain seems to be speeding towards break that and we think it's going to be done in the next six weeks

"Let's have a numbers round. Do you have a number? I do it is one euro and twenty cents. Okay. So this is the annual interest paid on the oldest pay government debt that is still in existence. It's in France. And they're it's basically this very very old debt that started as an annuity. But in pre revolutionary France, and it was paid to this lawyer from this aristocrat, and then his lands were seized by the government. It's somehow got into the government's balance sheet. And then for some reason to polling decided to cement it into law. So to this day, technically, they still they still have to pay out the interest on this debt now because of devaluation and inflation, it's obviously not yielding very much. But I just don't it's kind of interesting and the people who technically think that they are the ones who should be getting it. They're doing. The math Millie. It makes us it will cost us far more to prove that we should actually be getting this money than we would. Then we would actually get from the bond to do. They have like physical. It's like a bear bond. Now, the L actually the the oldest debt. The are the oldest is actually a bear on the Dutch like water authority on from sixteen forty five or something. That's actually like goat skin. That's like think Yale owns that's still out. Still amazing consoles. We love what one day. We'll have a whole segment on combs holes amazing things. Number.

So these insta- cart workers, they do their work. They drop off your delivery. And then they get a tip and the company was using the tip money to top off their ten dollar an hour guarantees so like instead of getting ten dollars. Plus, it's him. He was just got the ten dollars. And as I was coming in to these Brooklyn offices to slate money, I read that Amazon, which they outsource some Amazon flex it sort of their own insta- cart kind of thing they're having a they're doing a similar practice.

I yeah, I'm I'm really I'm really torn on my number. I think I'm not gonna do a Bank magic number effect matches boring. I'm gonna do Brexit number which is seventeen percent. Seventeen percent is the approval rating for Jeremy Corbyn, who's the leader of the opposition in in the United Kingdom. And it's kind of amazing. I mean, that's like Hof the level of even Theresa May who's managed to Bolic's Brexit, like, you know, anything which can go wrong has gone wrong. He lost the biggest vote. The government has ever lost in parliamentary history in the UK and parliament has a long history in the UK and the idea that in the face of that kind of incompetence the leader of the opposition would be even less popular. And is is kind of mind boggling, and it just shows you how Christmas also. Breezing Jeremy Corbyn speeches over the years. You might also know why that could be no because this is awesome. Like, the Jeremy Corbyn species have been around for Evan had high approval ratings much ever ratings like way, everyone knowing. I can guarantee that the reason why has a low approval rating has nothing to do with some speech. He gave late ten years ago about a bunch of Palestinians. That's totally fair.

You you might think at some point might consider. Why so many thoroughly objectionable people seem to find him not objection to pay I think for Jeremy Corbyn, and by the way, they're progressive such as this in the United States. Some of them have been recently elected to the house of representatives. Jeremy Corbyn is the kind of progressive who ends is typical of many progressives who sees the world through a prism and that prison has two facets. One facet is ethnicity and one facet is class. So if you are of color, and I put that in quotation marks what whatever that might be or you are economically not privileged or from group that is economically not privileged then you can be the object of prejudice. But if you are white, and I even put that in quotation marks, and you appear to be or I think you are economically. Privileged? Then you can't be victim. Ipso facto therefore, you must be making this claim a my being antisemitic for a reason as a subterfuge. And that's where Jeremy Corbyn goes the minute. You charge him with something Salha, it's because of my views on Israel. Ha ha it's because my views on Palestine, I think it's Dame Jenny tongue who I'm going to paraphrase here.

How could I be an anti Semite says a Jeremy Corbyn, you know, my mother was that cable service as he sees Leslie remind this I guess brings us back to the title of your book antisemitism here. And now you were saying earlier that it is it is the oldest hatred. It's certainly doubtless a candidate for that title. But is it your sense that it adapts and changes, and what you are looking at now the antisemitism of three thousand nineteen over the would have things in common with the anti semitism. Nineteen seventy nine hundred however fall back you want to go. But has it changed in how it changed? Well, let me first say how it's the same. I call it old wine in new bottles. The roots of. Anti-semitism are in great measure, not totally. But in great measure in the New Testament story of the death of Jesus in which it is. It has been said, and it's taught and it's written that the Jews wanted to have Jesus crucified. Of course. Jesus was a Jew that Jews are Jews. But that's a fact let's not worry about that. Right now wanted Jesus crucified because amongst other reasons because he wanted to change chase the money changers out of the temple. They didn't have the power to do it. They convinced a reluctant roam the most powerful entity on the in the on the universe to do this for them right there. You have the template and by doing this for them. They the Jews deprive the world of all the goodness that could've come from Jesus, etc. But they you have the template for anti-semitism money. Power in the nefarious use of that power money smarts, conniving, you know, when you say Jew is is really clever. It's not a compliment, you know, and conniving use of that power. If you look at antisemitic charges through the ages to today, you will find those elements that was Deborah Lipstadt. Speaking to me earlier Deborah's new book, anti semitism here. And now is out now published by scribe. You're listening to the monocle daily on monocle twenty four.

Do you have the prime minister's mobile, number and Coburn. Look back at this European with kind of if you'd come from a different galaxy. I mean that is so out of the ordinary for British politics and yet for some European political systems. It's absolutely one of the mill and they expected Britain to build a consensus first. And then come to Brussels to do the deal not wanted failed in London, then work out what my actually path. It's very interesting. What you're saying that about that the calculations being made in Brussels changing since the vote on Tuesday about how they respond because I didn't raise instincts are still to go back to Brussels and try to get some sort of cosmetic change to the Irish backstopping some so legal codicil, but plainly not going to cut it. So if the EU says, look, there's no point to helping you here because it's not gonna work that she then plays into the hands. All those people.

And we've been through the may times for illness pocus, no in that customer eating or even as Alex was hinting. There the possibility that if the row keeps being blocks in Brussels dual Roach than starts will the second referendum. So let's touch Joe on the no confidence votes. Jeremy Corbyn has had a longtime. He would put forward a motion of no confidence in the government activi- time and following the defeating the mean for vote, I guess. Dot walls divide time. But it was all the meaningless excise. But what I guess he had to go through because the D you pay the democrat units to prop up tweets as government. They're still sticking by the prime minister, stay voted with her and so the government survives, and you can keep bring confidence motions as much as you want. But it really doesn't seem to have changed anything and won't change anything until the DP change their minds on supporting MRs may because the government is that they will still be there. And and that's that's why we're out with this again is just kind of stalemate. Well, yeah. I mean, it was interesting. She watching that debate on photo Wednesday, another momentus occasion. He was the first comfortable confidence vote in government for over twenty years since nineteen Ninety-three, I think. Yeah. So you know, any other way that would be massively historic moment. But actually as the day unfolded, you could see Jeremy Corbyn of being so reluctant to move this confidence because first of all allow the conservative party get together and get. Hind the prime minister. There was a sparkling speech. The end by Michael gave the environment secretary where he ready laid into Jeremy Corbyn, the Tory benches cheering him on the end of the day. You say the chief nothing because it showed that trees may still has that majority. Thanks to the DP. I think the interesting thing will come further down the line. If Theresa May is forced attacks was the center on Brexit. The question of whether Jeremy Corbyn and keeps pushing no confidence votes as a way of testing the resolve eurosceptics in the conservative party. Whether some of them might do the kamikaze thing voting to bring down that government. Now, some people muttering about that some people discounts it as how many did. But certainly that would be one option the Charon becoming once test. Absolutely now, Alex, the key thing people are talking about in Westminster. Now is Georgia saying his tacking towards a softer. Brexit picks of trees may try take a heart of put that it doesn't see how chiefs anything it's not going to win lay impede. It's not going to win any moderate conservatives.

Have long said, they don't wanna have government at all. Yeah.

So it's there in pets. Little cat on his lap. Immune. So again, what what what happens next? You guys are in sort of holding question. I mean, I think you know, what we're likely to see happen is the third thing that Macron talked about, which is, you know. Let's take a little bit more time. So the last for a longer transition period. So instead of March twenty ninth it'll be sometime in July. Then maybe they'll step up over the European elections to find something else. But to be honest what she should have done last night. What you should have done. You know, almost immediately is resign. Have the government resign on away out the door withdraw article fifty which stops this whole shit show? Because that's what it is at this point. And then say, okay, you know, re smog who's sitting there and go who gave a, you know, a speech tonight as well. These are all people who wanna step into her seat, and they don't care whether she's they're not they all wanna be prime minister, you fix it. And what about is? Jeremy Corbyn waiting in the wings, or is he never gonna rise to that position. Jeremy Corbyn is is is an Igna wrapped in a riddle. Because I I don't understand him because his party is very much in favor of remaining. I mean. Most vast majority of the members of his party believe very strongly that we're better off in the in the European Union, but he has for years been anti Europe. And so you have the leader of a party who most of his people are four remaining who is for leaving. So even if he were to win and become prime minister of the United Kingdom.

"Today is the fifteenth of January good as always to have your long everybody. We are give or take two and a half years into the saga that is Brexit Great Britain pulling out of the European Union. And it is not going to far at all. I think to say that we are no closer today to knowing how this thing is going to turn out than we were when the Brits voted in the summer of two thousand sixteen Prime Minister Theresa May's proposed withdrawal deal took a drubbing in parliament today. It went down four hundred thirty two to two hundred and two which means. Who knows? So as we do and Brexit news rolls around. We've got a hold the Stephen beard in London. Hello, steven. Kyw? So honestly now what happens? Well, the deal Theresa May's deal is as dead as a day. I mean, this was an absolutely shattering defeat. She lost the vote by a big margin than anyone predicted. I mean, what happened here today was the remains and Brexit is United to trash this deal. And this was maze. Flagship policy is astonishing, frankly that she hasn't resigned. All right. So well, and and there's gonna be no confidence vote, I guess at some point tomorrow from from Labor's, Jeremy Corbyn, right? Yes. That's right. That's going to be debated tomorrow. If she lost that she surely would resign, and it could very well collapse, the government and could lead to to a general election. But in fact, she, but I should say she probably likely to survive. That competence vote because her Brexit rebels and members of the Northern Irish party that propping up don't want the government to collapse. So from tomorrow, she she she could be soldiering on trying to extract a better deal from the EU. All right. But look if you are first of all British business or second of all an overseas or international business thinking about doing business in Great Britain in the short-to-medium-term future. What are you thinking right now? Well, they've been thinking this for some while actually I mean businesses really must be getting used to this uncertainty, nevertheless, one thing from which they might derive some encouragement, and this possibly reason for the pound actually taking up right countering to safely. This may be because what could happen now is parliament could take more control over the situation and actually start all during the government to do certain things, for example. Seeking a postponement of Brexit day. Be on March. The twenty ninth is even the possibility the parliament by order a second referendum which could result in. No Brexit a toll. But I guess in a way that might offer some comfort and reassurance to possible investors in Britain. But although on the other hand, it looks as if there's going to be a lot of turmoil and confusion here over the next few weeks last thing, and we gotta hustle before. I let you go. If you're the European Union looking at this the EU twenty-seven as they call themselves. What what are you thinking? Well, the EU has been playing hardball over this trying to punish Britain to discourage other Member States from leaving. But the EU doesn't want to know deal Brexit either. I mean, the e you got a ninety billion dollar trade surplus with Britain if the UK does crash out on March the twenty ninth without the deal. French wine, growers German, car makers and Spanish farmers are going to be up in arms and with Germany and Italy almost certainly in recession now, France, not far behind the mess of a no deal. Brexit is the last thing that the EU needs Stephen beard in London on Canada, an amazing geopolitical and economic day. Thank you, Stephen. Thank you. Bye.

Banks can rake it in in fact, trading desk revenue jumped at the beginning of two thousand eighteen when we saw some volatility, but Wells Fargo Bank analyst, Mike, mayo says, not all volatility is created equal. There's good volatility and bad volatility with there's too little. There's not much incentive to trade that there's too much people. Get scared.

"Rahim the dream. What's up, man? So where are you seeing this rise in antisemitism, specifically on the left? Well, look, I mean a couple of years ago you had a situation and be continuum where Jeremy Corbyn who is a fall match communist sympathizer. I mean, literally marches alongside hammer and sickle flags was elected leader of the labour party, and then you've had occasion of tension. Very very serious incidents of antisemitism. Jew hatred to to put a finer points on it from within the labor party, the political left the United Kingdom so much so the pulse. So had to have a full internal investigation will soon as Bs lost midterm elections in the United States. I believe narrow seeing elected members of the democrat policy of America. Shows those same intonations towards Jew hatred as the labor party in the United Kingdom. And I'll give you some examples of that receded to lay this new congress woman who is probably most famous right now. So that video where she said we going to impeach the mother about President Trump. She accused members of congress of having do loyalties between the United States and Israel. It's june. Loyalty is a very famous anti semitic trip. The that implies a Jewish person. Kennel an American through infuriates that they always have the underlying affinity and allegiance to Israel, the United States for any other country that they might be citizens. All you also have the Los Angeles coins. Running all Kohl's say things like the headline over even who's telling you support an anti Semite like Louis Farrakhan and support the progressive women's March and their own to the question that they pose themselves was maybe it's complicated to stall. Ready to see the the roots of this. What is really a philosophical disease being clauses in the United States? It's been it's been initial the time they've been trying to do this also, of course, famously anti semitic famously, very very aggressive towards non Muslims informa- Muslims, especially who was who was one of the coaches of the women's March, which is coming up. And so now, I thought it was about time we should rely on what's going on on the political left because there's so many years now, we've heard about the white and the right and the nationalists being anti semitic turns out as far as I can analyze projection from the left all along. Why is it that you see in European? Why do you? You see that there is this particular strain of anti semitism that fines. A home in left wing politics because the left is you know in America. And I would assume in the UK though, you know, a lot more about it than me is obsessed with identity politics, and yet in this instance, all of a sudden Jews who have been not just persecuted in modern history, but persecuted really for all of known human history, all of a sudden are outside of that protected on with some elements of the left, obviously, not all of it. But find themselves outside of that protected category. Status. Just philosophically why does the left find itself or put itself rather in that position? How does that happen? It's a really difficult subject to broach. It's still good sensitivity. So so I say this is. We. Intended tools anyway. Let's take a step back and analyze kind of kind of way to look at things. It's isn't so much about politics. But it's about dictating politics now Jewish people they tend to have victimhood status as much as would like it's the same with Asians in America as well. Actually, you really see the next ROY to the rescue all Asian say in Hollywood Asian to massively under represented in Hollywood. But you never see that being said by the political left because agents to be in the percentage of average income in the United States, the same with Jewish people say it's more about, you know, someone can be clauses a victim, and there will never age politics. So that's why I think the you know, what people junior and to some extent Indians. From from South Asia, don't necessarily find themselves the target.

And there is a counter I didn't seek that just so happens to have a big problem with love one.
