"I want to get into the Lakers roster moving forward and what their rotation is going to look like. But before I leave Stanley Johnson behind here, I need to finish with this, the health and safety protocols, omicron, all this stuff that's been hitting the NBA. This is a tough thing for the NBA. Tough thing to deal with. You're essentially bringing in replacement players. Gilead guys are coming in. In fact, Joe Johnson played in the NBA, right? That's how desperate. Their Collison. Darren Collison. That's how desperate. The league got. For just players, just so we don't have to cancel games. Give us guys who can somewhat competently put on an NBA Jersey and go up and down the floor. The next step would have been grabbing athletic looking fans. Out of the stands and putting putting jerseys on them and saying, here, here you go, you hop in. You can play for a little bit for us. They had to find guys. And that's tough. That's tough for the league to get through that's tough for the product on the court that's tough for fans who bought tickets to those games, wanting to see the stars and next thing you know, the stars are out for ten days. That's tough. But the silver lining was that you were going to get all of these guys who were going to get opportunities. Opportunities that they wouldn't get otherwise and we knew that for some guys. Some guys they would get they would join the team and they might never set foot on the floor. Other guys will join a team and actually get some minutes. And for a select few, they were not only going to get minutes, but they were going to impress teams enough to potentially earn a job in the NBA. Again, that was the silver lining. That's the feel good part of this is these guys who have been cloned to get back in the NBA. It's Stanley Johnson was out of the league, now had an opportunity to earn their way back in that they would not have received otherwise and credit to Stanley Johnson. He sees that opportunity and he ran with it. Yeah, and Stanley Johnson is a former lottery pick and obviously that doesn't mean too much. It doesn't mean he's going to become a superstar anytime soon..

"That we might be able to get into a dentist trade segment a little bit here. But like Schroeder is not as good of a three point shooter as Pritchard is. Pritchard extends the geometry way out beyond three point range. So if you're going to and this is eventually where Boston I think would like to go is to have both knee Smith are one of nee Smith and prichard out there with the Jays, they give them more space to operate. That's why Al Horford three point shooter is excellent for those two guys because, you know, again, if he comes out of the three point line, the center just can't sag in the middle of the lane and clog the paint. He said about respect Al. And if Jalen and Jason can expand their playmaking a little bit, there's wide open three pointer potentially there without warfarin. So again, if ideally if those two guys are kind of a Boston needs, right? They need two guys that can really shoot threes. And the hard part is just watching garrison Matthews shoot like a 1 million % from three. With more opportunities somewhere else, like that one that one hurts too. So yeah, the COVID protocols has allowed these two guys to get some more rhythm and more run. And they look good in those times. It's just like, you know, at some point, you gotta be at the competition. And obviously, with its prior history with eBay, he may go with Josh Richardson in rich to display. It's not like Richard is playing terribly, but it doesn't allow for nee Smith to fund any consistency. So basically needs and it's got to be like, oh, yeah. Let me come in and be unconscious off the bench every time you need me, which is like maybe three minutes a game once a week, which is like, yeah, how is anybody supposed to get any rhythm at all whatsoever doing that? Again, this team clearly is in need of a trade somehow. They have to find a way to open up spots. The thing is, Dennis gives them something they don't have. A guy that can truly be guys off the dribble. But Dennis does 18 other things a game that make you want to pull your hair out. And again, I am slowly fading towards that side. However, I will. He's also not going to be back next year. So if you can get something for him, that's the idea there too. So I love Pritchard and his development last year was a huge storyline of the entire season. I mean, everybody in myself included a little van of lead ish, you know? Kind of with the way he could come in off the bench and run an offense and occasionally throw up 20 points. And I'm not talking now, family announced on unbelievable player. But early van fleet, when we weren't sure what he was yet, there's that kind of potential there, and the guy shot 50% in college from 3.3.

"The table for that. But I will say there is an advantage to having Joe Johnson around. And that is teaching your 23 year old and you're 25 year old players a little bit more about routine about what you need to eat. We need to sleep. Because again, Joe Johnson's 40 years old in playing in the big three league or whatever it is and is doing somewhat well ish, right? And as highlights, you know, every summer and everybody goes crazy for the four point shot river he's doing. It's valuable to have a guy like him around. And I think because of the respect factor that he has, it might be at least should be looked into keeping him around. Because again, he's not going to play. I mean, he's really not going to play unless it's garbage time. He's a human victory cigar. It's fantastic when he comes out. Because you know that the games in hand and he might shoot a few times and everybody wins, right? I think there is these guys could use a little bit of that nurturing from Joe Johnson and I don't think it's a terrible Joe Johnson might show them one or two things that they could use in the game. It's not like Jalen and Jason don't have a library of things to look at or choose from in terms of like trying to figure out their game. However, you know, Joe Johnson's guy that's been there done that and scored in a variety of different ways. He could maybe teach some of the thing or two about some sort of move that they don't have yet. I see nothing but good value from this in my opinion and again, I like jabari Parker. So it's like jabari Parker who doesn't have any ACLs left or 40 year old Joe Johns. So pick your one. And there's some there's some weight over here with Joe Johnson, so I'm saying. Oh, at the very least, the chair is all the feel good story of the season for the Celtics. They have needed something like this teeth. Yeah, they just, I wrote it today in my takeaways for salt ex blog from the game. This team needed to have some fun. They wasn't just about winning because clearly they need to get some wins too, but they needed to have one where they did fun and felt good. And there was a lot of stuff to really feel good about from that game. I thought Romeo Langford played great. We could go for an hour on his post defense as a 6 foot four guard. I thought Aaron nee Smith hit some shots and looked pretty good. Peyton Pritchard reemerging in the rotation and looking like a really good player again has been huge. And then you get Ennis sprinting the court for a dunk that nobody expected. I mean, that thing was crazy. I said, that was the one that kind of had the building swaying. And then Joe Johnson blew the roof off when he got in the game and snake his way into that jump shot..

"I was also told directly because people are saying, you know, why did they sign CJ miles and Justin Jackson? And Joe Johnson, guys who are not Isaiah Thomas. Well, there's been some of that for sure too, but the thing missed with Isaiah Thomas is this all happened after the Lakers are already there. So they just maybe get beat to the punch, but the reality was, what I was told would those four guys, Justin Jackson's initially different place, of course, seasonally, four years in the league. But Johnson and miles was, they know what the story is. They know they're coming in here for probably ten days. Maybe 20, if there's a need to keep them beyond that, with no expectations of I'm going to stay at. I'm going to stay. I'm going to do all these things. And there's a email address. We're not looking for any projects. Right now, we're not looking to bring these guys in. We're a team like Orlando, where I live. Dave pulled up all these guys from their G league team, but they're also a team that's scary in the diamond mining process of let's see if we can find somebody who can pop and things like that. We've also seen the Celtics aren't stalking Maine with young player. They're generally going for guys that are a little bit more established. They have a pretty good sense of who they are. I think the main guys are getting jobs elsewhere anyway. Exactly. And I think and I do think if they'd known where things were going, you might have seen one or two of those guys maybe come back. You need to talk about that of like, hey, they get snapped up and want somewhere. It's also on the players too. It's those guys are free agents as far as the NBA is concerned. They don't have any loyalty to have to go to this outbreak if they feel like if you're Luke or not, my better shot to play and stick is in Cleveland, then go to Cleveland versus coming to Boston. But I think the main thing was the Celtics didn't need guys coming in who were trying to fight to stay on the roster and doing all this stuff. They needed guys who got it and knew what the story was. Come in, do your thing for, you know, two, two and a half weeks.

"Opportunities, Joe Johnson, who was drafted by the Celtics tenth overall 20 years ago and was traded in February because of the insane impatience on the part of Rick Pitino and Johnson was not the only victim of that, obviously, goes on 7 time all star, you know, an excellent career, 20 plus points per game 7 or whatever straight years that it was, he was very, very good, had been the big three league hadn't played in the NBA since 2018 gets the ten day contract comes into chance of we want Joe everyone all excited about ISO Joe throwing it back to their childhoods. I was in high school, Evan probably in middle school at the time or elementary school for all. I know he's so young. And then Johnson comes in final two minutes of the game, hits his only shot, old man jumper like you read about just effortless and beautiful and terrific and now I want to know how we keep this guy around for the rest of the season Keith. Yeah, it's funny that seems to be a prevailing take this morning last night and into this morning really was how do we keep Jo Johnson all the time? Were you here guys coming back to locker room in there? Doing crazy for him, which is to be expected, but then jaylen Brown talking about how this guy played with him over the summer, but I also watched him when he was with the hawks when I was a kid and Jayson Tatum, apparently told Lima you don't go like he was really excited because Joe Johnson is one of his favorite players growing up. So, yeah, my guess is what I've told people all along is for any single one of these guys. We're up to over 50 of them now that are on these hardship contracts. It's a ten day audition to show what you can do. The vast majority of them will not stick and they'll get sent back to the G league or sent back into semi retirement at least like Joe Johnson was in. Or maybe a handful of them do show enough and then teams say, well, you know, we get this other guy who's at the end of the bench that really doesn't fit what we need right now. Let's move on for. And I know a lot of people are going to get javari park or out of here. We don't need him anymore. Keep Joe Johnson. And I don't want to go quite that far because I think javari Parker has done some stuff. But I can see the logic behind it. If he continues to play well and seems to be a good locker and presence, the reality is you're 15th to 17th man depending on how you count the two way players. If you're really counting on all that much out of them, you're probably not a very good team. So you might as well do things that make the locker room a better place, get guys a little bit in line. The Miami Heat have done it for years now with you Donna haslam. 'cause it's different when you're a player versus a coach. You gear in the locker room with the guys. When there's a player's only meeting, those guys carry weight and gravitas that coaches are not there to be involved in. So yeah, maybe that is what Joe Johnson becomes for the same. I will say this too..

"Before <Speech_Male> <Silence> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Male> I was here, I <Speech_Male> can't speak to that. But <Speech_Male> for the most part, it's <Speech_Male> just, I don't know, I think <Speech_Male> it's too early to say <Silence> just because <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> sure it is kind <Silence> of a <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> very <Speech_Male> nerve <Speech_Male> wracking or just like a nervous <Speech_Male> thing if you are a <Speech_Male> fan, but I think <Speech_Male> it's if <Silence> they want a few more, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> you feel better about. <Speech_Male> And I just think <Speech_Male> it's too small as some sample <Speech_Male> sizes for your coach <Speech_Male> right now for teenage <Speech_Male> to kind of judge <Speech_Male> on that. <SpeakerChange> Even <Silence> based on past seasons. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Yeah, no, I <Speech_Male> agree with you a 100% <Speech_Male> of the email part of it <Speech_Male> is like you can't <Speech_Male> and the <Speech_Male> fact of <Speech_Male> the roster <Speech_Male> being you look <Speech_Male> at the 17 games <Speech_Male> that I want to like, okay, <Speech_Male> who's on the floor? <Speech_Male> Who do <Speech_Male> they actually have available for those <Speech_Male> games and crunch time? <Speech_Male> How many of those games <Speech_Male> were <Speech_Male> jaylen Brown or <Speech_Male> whoever <Speech_Male> out in those big moments? <Silence> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> But at the same time, <Speech_Male> I do think it <Speech_Male> is indicative of <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Male> fact that <Speech_Male> a lot of the guys <Silence> on this team still try <Speech_Male> to do hero mode <Speech_Male> in those situations. <Speech_Male> Like you said you brought <Speech_Male> up the drum shot <Speech_Male> like someone who knew they brought <Speech_Male> in then <Speech_Male> Tatum <Speech_Male> Brown. <Speech_Male> You and Marcus <Speech_Male> smart to agree. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> They <SpeakerChange> all <Speech_Male> talk like they want <Speech_Male> to play well <Speech_Male> together in those <Speech_Male> moments, but <Speech_Male> when adversity <Speech_Male> strikes, a <Speech_Male> lot of the time or <Speech_Male> when they're a <Speech_Male> play gets first <Speech_Male> option gets blown up, <Speech_Male> a lot <Speech_Male> of it just turns <Speech_Male> into isom mode in those <Silence> situations. <Speech_Male> So, <Speech_Male> and then honestly, defensively, <Speech_Male> too, they've <Speech_Male> made a lot of mistakes <Speech_Male> in <Speech_Male> those clunch time <Speech_Male> spots too, where <Speech_Male> they don't <Speech_Male> get as much <Speech_Male> attention on them <Speech_Male> because it's <Speech_Male> defense and it's tougher to <Speech_Male> tell in real <Silence> time who's <Speech_Male> making <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Male> who's on the right spot <Speech_Male> or who shouldn't make that switch <Speech_Male> or whatever. But <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> was for a team that's supposed <Speech_Male> to be built on defense. <Speech_Male> I think that's the area where <Speech_Male> you want to <Speech_Male> see <Speech_Male> that part of the game tighten up <Speech_Male> for them if they want to <Speech_Male> be <SpeakerChange> if <Silence> they want that to be at their identity <Speech_Male> at all. <Speech_Male> Yeah, and <Speech_Male> I think <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> you can say top ten <Speech_Male> defensive end, but right at <Speech_Male> ten. I think this Ross <Speech_Male> should be better. <Speech_Male> Cleveland has heard and <Speech_Male> I have a <Speech_Music_Male> mobile <Speech_Music_Male> is an incredible <Speech_Male> player, but <Speech_Male> with the personnel <Speech_Male> with email <Speech_Male> and what they've been <Speech_Male> selling like they should be <Speech_Male> better than 10,000 <SpeakerChange> defensive <Speech_Male> rating in at <Speech_Male> least in my opinion. <Speech_Male> Yeah, the fat and <Speech_Male> starting double big. <Speech_Male> You have to <Speech_Male> be, you <Speech_Male> can't just be <SpeakerChange> ten. <Speech_Male> If you're <Speech_Male> giving up if you're <Speech_Male> punching on three points shooting <Speech_Male> in <Speech_Male> your starting <SpeakerChange> 5, <Speech_Male> pretty much every night, <Speech_Male> then yeah. <Silence> But <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> we'll see though. <Speech_Male> Like you said, <Speech_Male> I think it's <Speech_Male> early here. <Speech_Male> 16, 16. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Half a team <Speech_Male> out in COVID <Silence> protocols for <Speech_Male> much of the last week. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And then jaylen <SpeakerChange> Brown ad <Speech_Male> for a huge chunk <Silence> before that. So <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> we'll see <Speech_Male> how things look <Speech_Male> as they close out <Speech_Male> this tough December. <Silence> Sweetie will <Speech_Male> be there. <Speech_Male> In Milwaukee <Speech_Male> in Minnesota over <Speech_Male> the next week <Silence> to give us <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> the one of the few <Speech_Male> live in <Speech_Male> persons looks from Celtics <Speech_Male> coverage on massive <Speech_Male> dot com that will

"Time, you listen to offers just because I mean, at least with, at least with the moody's made so far, they've kind of came out of left field in the sense that he was a little bit more. I would say, you know, I think I keep calling them move savvy, that Brad has done over the last 6 years, but I think that's a really good way to just put it. Campbell doesn't look like him by anymore. You know, regardless of the thought excuse, doctor Richardson, he has his fault that he's been a pretty good player. You know, for an assault, especially off the bench, he may obviously like some off the bench. All the salary cap maneuvering and all that. So I think you consider all that and you kind of wait and see, but at the same time, you know, I'm sure Brad has something like kind of like an obscure trade. He has just going to pull out of nowhere and be like, oh, okay, I didn't even know that was a possibility. Here he is. You know, that's why I guess he was promoted to a president of basketball operations. Yeah, I can see him just shoveling it back to keep us on our toes. Yeah, I'm with you. I think you wrote a good article on this earlier week on the patent through your situation on massive that just kind of lays out the you have to at least see what's out there for sure his contract situation as it is and with Pritchard showing signs of life here. As a contributor. And then Richardson, I wonder, he's a very good year when he's been available in Alaska months. So you wonder if he's out of the movable pieces. You wonder if he might have the most value? Because they did sign to that extension for one more year at a reasonable money. And that's just a position of need around a league of just a wing that defensively is good at hounding guys..

"So we're 16 and 16 to each year right now. Brad Stevens. We're probably a month and a half away from the trade deadline. As of right now, what is your strategy right now if you're Brad Stevens in terms of just evaluating things and what strategy the next thing? Are you in a completely weight mode? Are you think of a pretty good idea that you know what you want to do, but you're going to have to wait obviously for other teams to come to the table. Where do you where do you stand in terms of what how much you can actually take out of this 16 and 16 record so far? Honestly, not too much just because Jalen has missed about a little less than half the season at this point. I think that's such a big part of it. I also think you look at right because coming into the season, you saw the extension of Marcus and rob and he said the core was those two Jalen and JSON obviously. And you got those guys locked up for years. You gotta see what those guys. And we just haven't seen that much of it. I think you look at this current state of the roster, and you feel okay about things, but at the end of the day, this is a 500 roster. And I don't really think that's a way to sugarcoat that. Even without jailing plane half the games, I want to say like a few weeks ago, I wrote one of your articles and it was like the jailing record when he does play, it wasn't exactly like sparkling either, right? I think you look at the pieces. I mean, you just question how things can get a little better. I think truly with trade online, I think you start with Dennis Schroeder, just because he's on such an affordable contract. And you realize, no matter what you want to do, it's going to be hard to resign this guy. He did playing decently while the south expands on exactly in love with his dribbling and then how he kind of sucks up the offense at times. But he's an effective player when he's on and I think as a third scoring option he has been, especially as a jail and feeling like I think he's been he's been pretty good in that regard, but I think you start with him. See if he can get any value from him from a guy from a contender who is willing to make that trade. And I think you go from there, I think the biggest thing is just I think a few personnel switches might help out this office, but to the email to the expensive defense, like we talked about patent, but we also have to consider that he's not exactly a defensive stalwart on that end of the court. So sure, he might help the three point shooting at the end of the day. I think he will, but, you know, those defensive members, you have a, I believe, right now, ten defensive rating. Maybe that slips a little bit more..

"And all these guys Reggie Miller, Steve Carell I remember he said he had drills where he would literally just sit for 5 minutes and make sure to three and then go so for 5 minutes again, like I think with three point shooting like it's tough for like a 23 year old kid. Second year in the league, like they just sit for however many games come out maybe a little cold, like shoot two, three pointers and expect that hit the maker. I think he needs to get into rhythm and being able to play these minutes has really helped on that regard. Perhaps you know later on down the line and his creator will think more about, hey, maybe spot up shooter, et cetera, et cetera, but like the Steve Kerr of the world. But I just think that's a difficult ask of a kid who pretty much consistently throughout his basketball playing career like whether it be in high school or Oregon or even as rookie or like he got pretty consistent. It's like share a dip that time out here, but he was a rotation player and he was able to create that rhythm. So I think you look at it now and you just see the sporadic Ness and I know that you could tell this frustrated him when he does speak postgame and I'm sure it does for every player, but it's a tough ask and so the fact that he is playing you know money plus minus three straight games. I think that's just going to help in the long run. And we'll see if that affects things of the trade online. That's coming up soon. And Brad Stevens already kind of made a few savage face, and we'll see what else he has on the sleeve. Is there any way we'll get to the trade deadline and the trade positive stuff in a second? But first, we're going to talk we're going to talk about bet online or winning play sponsored here. They have you covered this holiday season with more props odds and.

"It is. So what, let's look bigger picture now the team, they're 16 and 16. And they had what that one game when they were whole, and then it's obviously been for the last week this whole home standard that they haven't really had for the bucks game. It's been people in and out. Of the protocols here. What are the biggest takeaways for you right now from just the players that are playing? And they are available right now. What has stood out for you in this stretch? And what do you think, and what actually asked staying power versus more stuff that's just a resolve of the circumstances. Yeah. I think email the songs that you just never mentioned being a full strength again. It seems like every time they say they're like, it feels good. Oh my God. Let's see how long it lasts. And then I think it was whatever game that was maybe the bucks. Then they get hit by protocols again, so I think they should just stay away from that. But I've been really encouraged, I think, by Jalen's play, just because the first time he came back, he was clearly didn't look like himself. He was grimacing. He looked like he was in pain. He said his body didn't respond well. But recently he's put together two solid performances, 30 plus points. He looks more like himself. I don't think he's a 100% all the way back in terms of the bursts and everything. But I think you feel good in the sense that he hasn't said anything in terms of like feeling bad or just like his body responding bad. And obviously, that's all that you're a little more conservative when they kept them out of that 5 game road trip. But I think Jalen's play has been good. And can really, you know, like last night with the Cleveland wind, like Jace, Tatum wasn't like that, great. Had a slow start hill a little bit of a flurry in the second quarter, but overall it wasn't a very good shooting night, but you can't rely on something like Jalen Jalen to kind of pick up the slack there. And I think that's what the salt that we're missing when Jalen was out. Obviously, missing a second officer missing your second also does not help things in the production of the form, but when Jalen is on and maybe pay them isn't like you can still play pretty well and obviously all the facts were included like rob shooting 90% or whatever it was, but.

"For Christmas Day in Milwaukee. How excited are you for a tilt between whoever's playing on these two squads? Yeah, if Giannis has been playing, depending on the players. I'm so excited because it'll be like a Christmas Day game and like two 32, nationally televised, like there's all that stuff. I think I would be more excited. I'm from the Midwest, but maybe if I was somewhere a little warmer it would be a little bit more exciting, but otherwise I'm pretty pumped for the trail, honestly. I think it'll be a lot of fun. I think, you know, well, we'll see what the on the player front, especially with salt things having 8 players protocols. But hopefully some guys come out. On both sides of the teeth see you a little bit of a better product than that. But it has been in the past week or so. Absolutely. But we know one guy that should be there is Joe Johnson, 40 road Joe Johnson, who, you know, I was kind of surprised here, and I'm curious, this was like front page news like everywhere yesterday. This was maybe the biggest story in the NBA on Wednesday when Joe Johnson signs with the heart of exception. He's been out of the league for two years, but I think he tried to come back with the pistons, was it being a last season and got caught at the end of the 2019 20 so well, first of all, let's just talk about the end of the game against the calves there. You're there to you saw it first thing to see the amount of energy from the crowd in terms of getting him in the game there. I mean, this wasn't like taco level, but I think it's pretty close in terms of what the volume seemed like in terms of how excited they were to get him on the floor again in that game. I wasn't at the game just for close contact reasons. Just precautionary. I'm fine. But I think the quote that I thought about that actually was a chance. I was like, wow, no, we want to talk about chance and if we want Joe chance, which is kind of ironic, because taco. They already got toddler. He started the game from tip, obviously. Safety protocol stuff. Yeah. But I thought that was really cool. It was funny. I was just getting like a bunch of like random people have been heard from for like, they're like, you're going to see Joe Johnson tonight. I'm like, I mean, kind of. Like he's on the Celtics. This is really cool.

"Several players who were out for them due to COVID reasons, Luka Dončić, and that's tough because it sounded like he was going to play tomorrow for the Mavs and then be available on Christmas. And now probably unlikely, neither one of those things is going to happen. Quinn dairy weatherspoon to the Golden State Warriors. He was with the spurs on a two way contract last year, then with the warriors and the preseason. And then check Diallo a big man who's kind of bounced around the league quite a bit over the last several years. He's going to join the Detroit Pistons. And I think that brings us back up to date, but since we record there might have been another 7 or 8 that were reported that we just missed, but I don't think so. At this point, yeah, that's probably correct. And I mentioned this before we came on air. We're seeing teams who are signing some players like we mentioned with saint Joe Johnson and players like that where they're probably not getting on the court unless it's a blow out unless it's garbage time. A lot of these signings are going to be more just to adhere to the NBA's rule. Than anything else. And should there be some garbage time situation that, okay, maybe. Maybe they wind up actually getting into the game, but most likely you're not gonna see most of these players on the floor. Instead, teams will do a short and rotations rather than throw a guy out there that doesn't know their plays and things of that nature. That said, I still hope we get at least one or two kind of Kurt Warner Christmas stories or whatever here that the guy comes from out of nowhere and career gets revitalized. Next thing you know, the guy's got a spot. Absolutely. Still, still keep my fingers crossed for IT, rough night last night for him, but for Isaiah Thomas, I think he's probably got the best shot out of any of these guys to really stick here. Yeah, I think not see them play. There's a couple teams who are some of these guys are absolutely going to play. Orlando. We've already seen that. The magic now have more available hardship players than they do regular roster players, which is just, I mean, that's ridiculous. Which also leads me into I'm going to do it Trevor. I'm going to step up on my soap box. A second here. Just for a second. And shout out to in our last video, I wish I could pull it up right now, but whoever put it in the comments, and I'm always so happy. I generally am a pretty positive person. And I love the game. I love what we get to do here so much, but right now I'm a little cranky. One of the things I'm cranky about is, what are we doing with these postponements? They seem so haphazard. It doesn't seem to make sense. Orlando has more players out than they do have available, and more hardship players than regular players, yet they're having to play Toronto, they did get their game canceled tonight against Chicago Bulls Wednesday night one were recording this..

"90.1 BE From NPR news this is all things considered I'm Audie Cornish And I'm el sitting On a cold December morning in 2008 a young black man by the name of Billy Joe Johnson died during a traffic stop with a white sheriff's deputy in loose stale Mississippi First authorities decided his death was a suicide Then they ruled it as an accident They said somehow Billy Joe Johnson shot himself accidentally with his own shotgun But a new investigation from the center for investigative reporting sheds light on that ruling that many in this Mississippi town never really believed anyway That reporting forms the basis for the new 7 part podcast Mississippi goddamn the ballad of Billy Joe Host Al letson joins us now to talk about the series welcome Thank you good to be here Good to have you So can you just start us off by telling us the story of how you came to learn about Billy Joe Johnson's case Yeah so many years ago me and my producer Tina and we were in Mississippi reporting on the Gulf Coast oil spill And pretty much everybody that we talked to brought up this case about Billy Joe Johnson who had passed away at that point like two or three years prior I had a really strange experience when I was reporting in Mississippi The producer I was with Tina is white and I'm black And a lot of times we would interview people and they wouldn't look at me or talk to me They would just talk to Tina specifically we were interviewing white people And so when I saw all these black people talking about Billy Joe and the fact that nobody was listening to them I understood exactly what they were saying And I think that that's part of the reason why the case stuck with me And tell us more about who Billy Joe Johnson was Yeah I would say that you know Billy Joe was just as an athlete He was tremendously gifted Tailback Billy Joe Johnson has rushed for nearly 3000 yards in his first two years on the varsity squad Larry Shirley was the play by play announcer for the local radio station When you put the film in slow motion everybody looks like they're running in slow motion except one guy And that would be Billy Joe He would look like normal speed But beyond that you know he was a son He was a brother He loved his community He volunteered he worked with kids But also he was a 17 year old you know he had ups and downs just like everybody knows some of his coaches said that he could be moody at times You know especially if they lost He was a fierce competitor You know he was just a good kid trying to make his way Well as you say you learned about this story several years ago and you eventually went back to Mississippi to investigate Billy Joe Johnson's case And I want to start with that very early morning in 2008 Why does Billie Joe end up getting pulled over Sure the official story says that Billy Joe got up early in the morning He told his parents that he was going hunting but he ended up going to his ex-girlfriend's house He bangs on the door She's thinks that somebody's trying to break in calls the police and when Billy Joe hears the sirens he leaves And then another officer sees Billy Joe run a light That officer pulls him over in the parking lot of carpet store According to the officer Billie Joe gets out of his vehicle hands him his licensing registration The officer then goes to his vehicle looks down to read the license and registration He hears a shot he looks up and Billy Joe Johnson is on the ground with a shotgun laying on his legs And at first the official story is that Billy Joe Johnson had killed himself But for those people who knew Billy Joe Johnson very very well why was it very hard for them to buy that conclusion Yeah I think that everybody who knew him saw that his future was bright The day he died that night he was going to receive an award He had plans for that weekend He was being recruited by auburn He was getting ready to announce that he was going to auburn No one thought that he was depressed So the idea that he killed himself I think is just really hard for a lot of people to swallow.
UK universities’ closeness to China poses risks, says Jo Johnson
"Report led by former. Universities managed to joe johnson warns of the poorly understood risks of increasingly close collaboration between uk. Universities china i tell us more well yes so awfully. Liam johnson's kicking off busy. After his various stints in half universities minister but a really interesting. I'm pretty comprehensive report looking at the relationship that uk her education house china And a couple of areas. It focuses on the role that that china is playing globally in research and development. Showing that it's set to overtake the us or Focusing that sets it will take the us. The world's biggest spender on research and development As well as the case may significant research partner and interesting Comparison looking at the fact that in two thousand nineteen. The uk collaborated with china and about sixteen thousand sixteen thousand Papers which is from about one hundred papers in the early nineteen nineties. But it's pretty. It's pretty punchy. Report and It it's pretty critical. I think it is pretty critical about the current approach is it sort of gives the impression that the view view those writing report is that the u k really needs to up his game when it in terms of understanding. The policy needs to start to be more robust against trump this transit authoritative authoritarian dictatorship. That showed little desire to transform itself into western style democracy whilst understanding the sort of reality of the situation that the relationship between China is fairly intertwined so interesting policy recommendations. They're proposing to increase the funding. I'm so there's not reliant. On international students focusing on the fact there are lots of international students from china as well and really Saying that the loss of requests. For you or i to be more robust in this do auditing to do more checking existing research partnerships and. Yeah i mean one kind of take away from me is that i think it needs to be a bit more primary research this but a very interesting report selena the line amitai pulls out about the authoritarian dictatorship that shows little desire to transfer into western style. Liberal democracy kind of wanted these joe. Johnson says that requires a catholic. Calibrated policy makes Is your sense that what's in here. Would address the concern. Or what's your view on the solutions that have been proposed there. I think the there's obviously a certain amount of posturing that behind the scenes in the kind of premise. Around china is what china is trying to do in terms of its links with uk higher education which have been built up over a long period of time but also built a time where it has been extending its into international links across the states australia various other countries and i think that the solutions are proposed in hair probably aren't going to unwind what what has already been laid extensively in terms of relationships between uk universities and chinese universities and indeed a sense of appetite from chinese students to study overseas and increasingly for uk students to take up the opportunity for some experience of transnational education in china. So i think it's helpful to point and two as the report says i to be aware of the extensive nece links the debt of the links on the volume of activity. But i would think where we are right now and certain from into individual institutions perspective. It solutions that are proposed. Here are not going to be effective at. Rolling back yeah. I'm sorry. I mean one of the things i was talking to someone about the even. What rolling back. Look i mean even if universities needed to the money less. What is it that they would do to discourage students from china coming. I mean we have people. Discriminating against st some china charlene will all supposed to be officially in theory in our kind of standards for admission that i'll just slightly adapted for each country. There's sort of things that the the first thing which i read the report in most detail to to to the potential this but i the overall impression i get from the initial i've done is that there isn't enough. Focus on the role of the us foreign policy. Plays in all of this either so going back to what you highlights about. That carefully calibrated police response. If the ratcheting up of us. Foreign policy towards china as china's influence in the world grows. Are we going to end up. In a situation affects the organ. Have to start picking sides and in that case it feels like yours. Foreign policy is going to drive a lot of what we end up. Take that first. Instance particularly given that. We're outside of the eu now and that focus on our lives is even more important but interestingly the report doesn't really say that talks about diversifying international student recruitment. But it says that it from a point of view. Saying because we don't become too reliant and because we actually think it's going to drop off over time potentially of the rise of universities in china. Say they really very much in there which is saying. We need to stop chinese students from coming to the k. But it's there's there's something around it is as chinese institutions grow and and as the government potentially starts incentivize more students to stay and study domestically that at risk for uk universities less exposed like places like australia but still the reports are saying uk university of need to prepare for that

Cowboys' Prescott doesn't get deal to replace franchise tag
"Not Deal for. Prescott and the cowboys could not agree to terms on a deal that would have the quarterback between thirty three and thirty five million dollars annually with a hundred and ten million of that guaranteed. So Daf will now play this season on the thirty one point four million dollar franchise tag. He will once again on himself this season if there were reports that the two sides were close, they clearly were not close enough. WHO's more likely to regret? Not Getting a deal done deaf Prescott or the Dallas Cowboys. I'm going to say. Despite the fact that I believe is going to end up the highest paid player than Patrick Mahomes in NFL, history I Dak is going to get the money that he ultimately wanted I think he's going to be franchise tag this year franchise tag next year and then hit open free agency. But here for deck that in the in the pursuit of that money, he's going to become an athlete that I. Don't think any athlete wants to be which is your name is not your name anymore? It's not Dak. Prescott is having a Joe Johnson Joe. Johnson stopped being Joe Johnson. He started being Joe Contract because no matter how good he was, he was never going to be able to live up to that contract. And I think Jack is setting himself up to be a little bit richer than he otherwise would be. Be a guy who can never live up to that contract, and the reason I think Dallas is not gonNA regret this, even if they back on the quarterback treadmill is because the the worst thing you can have in this league. Wild does not have a quarterback. The worst thing you can have is a vastly overpaid quarterback. If you don't have a quarterback and find a new one, you can go try to find one if you have a vastly overpaid quarterback. You're just stuck and so I think Jack is going to get what he thinks he wants in this the most money in. Have ever gotten aside from Mahomes I. Think he will end up regretting it because you have a great organization, you have great skill, position guys, and if he would've just signed for Carson, Wentz plus ten percent, no one would've held it against him, and instead this contract and the negotiations around at wild. You're going to be the narrative surrounding him for years to come. See I disagree. You think that it's it's. I think the worst thing to have is a mediocre quarterback. Any shot at the super. Bowl and I'm GONNA throw to a clip of Darren Woodson in a second, but I think in our minds if it's been glossed over that, it was troy and then Tony, but there was a the drew bledsoe Weirdo error there that they were in a bad spot. If we can take a listen a Darren Woodson please hubs. In, the world when you have quarterback purgatory. Where you can. You're not good at that position. That position is holding you back from winning games, and there was a time before Tony Romo era. Where there were four years, we went five and eleven. In a week, totally struggled at that one position in in today's game that one position is means a ton means wins and losses gotta get you over the Hump in when you don't have that Clare in that position. It's a huge struggle. I'm. So. Bryan. I think this eventually gets done I. Don't know if he gets franchise again. I think that we just moved the goalposts and a long-term deals going to get done. They like each other. Dak wanted for the cowboys wanted five I. Don't think the answer is. Let's get divorced just because we can't agree. I think this eventually get works gets worked out and I. Don't think anyone has any regrets long-term. The cowboys ended up regretted. Just a bit because I think that goes out and has a very good year. This season with Mike McCarthy Mike McCarthy comes back in after winning a playoff game or two, and says we need to have Dak back now. The cowboys have to pay him that long term contract, which is going to be a little bit more than they would have had to pay him this year. Here's the question that I've always had. If if the cowboys don't love, why would they ever want to sign him to a five year deal versus the forty deal if you don't love them then? On to a four year deal, you can get rid of him quicker. Why would you want WanNa longer contract if you don't love him, and you don't know exactly what he is for your football team to me I think they know who back is they just don't WanNa, pay him because they see him as a fourth round pick. A guy that has played well in this career hasn't quite got over the Hump. I don't think they want to pay him if I'm back Prescott I, feel like I'm in a great position to meet the floor. The absolute four is thirty three to thirty five million dollar contract that you can get from some other team after the season. If things don't work out for you here in Dallas, I think a team like Jacksonville. Teams that would need a quarterback was still need a quarterback next year and would be that open market possibly if he doesn't give franchise in the floor to his contract would be that deal that he turned down this season from the cowboys.

A History of Seduction
"Clement. Knox joins US now from London. His new book is called Seduction History from the enlightenment to the present Clement. Thanks for being here so your day job. I want to start there. Because you have a book oriented day job you work as a nonfiction buyer at waterstones which is of course a major British bookstore teen. What's your job like there? What do you do so their tour of managing nonfiction and about two hundred and eighty stores? My job really is just to get the the right books and the right stores. I'm responsible for history philosophy politics Papa. Johns I mean about nine categories overall and so. We do a lot with the publishers booksellers as well. Did you get to pick which categories you're responsible for? No when I got the job I was just assigned and then they'll kind of a reshuffle if he has got a few more categories as well they kind of work perfectly because it more or less alliance with what I'm interested in reading and what I'm interested in writing see you're deciding which books go into waterstone's the chain into which stores and how many copies are ordered exactly that to you. So that's a very powerful position. It's very structured is a very fair how we how we do it and is a constant communication publishers stores and sometimes even the authors as well we very even-handed brushing away and there's no kind of mysterious. What would probably shooter who understand. What's your typical day? Like a lot of meetings a lot of looking at science because a lot of reading of publicity plans and back and forth people. He wants us to buy their. Berko by book or by even more so. Are you living months ahead of time looking at? What are the books coming out this fall? Oh Oh yeah. We're tasked with trying to look as far as possible. So wig about to start. Looking at the timber Tiber November on average would normally thinking three months ahead of the east. And what happened with your book? The decider like we're going to order a hundred thousand copies of seduction. Yeah I I wish it was it by my boss has taken over that completely and utterly redeem. Oh look thing I try and pretend you know having to stay in a total of ignorance about one's own buck. I agree. Yeah but let's talk. Let's talk about your book. This may seem like perhaps a silly question but let's define seduction exactly. How is it action separate from courtship? How is it different from something? Maybe more creepy and less mutual like sexual harassment. Like what is seduction? I think the crucial aspect is selection. It's psychological and fumes kind of like confrontation between the minds and the passion of two different individuals in English law. That was a whole body of law do seduction discussing in some detail and wish would later it was. It came to America with with the mayflower that was developed in an extraordinary way and in those laws there was a distinction made between between rape which is obviously a What is coercive violent and seduction was seen as distinct from rape and she assumed that consent had been obtained that consent was in some way vitiated or somehow degraded by the techniques by which it was one so seduction carry that burden. That somehow someone's being over and perhaps the method used to win them over the Underhand but that's only one definition. There's a whole other definition which would say you know. It's just about courtship and game playing and it's fun and this is dawn which is dawn sexual freedom. Did you focus on that fun? Dance in this book or did you cover the full gamut the way the book is kind of structured is the. There's like a dialectic. Going on and one half of the history of seduction is about people worrying about sexual freedom worrying about things going wrong about the collision desire empower the capacity for abuse and wrongdoing. That is one of the history and the other half is about sexual freedom being this exciting enjoyable thing which which is buried lighthearted and people Is The insurance of the church. Will the government so the book kind of structured around the kind of dichotomy and not conflict between our two years of war sexual freedom is and what that means deduction your subtitle is history from the enlightenment the presidency? You're focusing mostly on the modern era. But let's start just briefly with that premodern era talk about what our earliest ideas of seduction were. Maybe perhaps grounded in with Allah G. And then how that changed as you moved into the Judeo Christian era the reason I start in the enlightenment. There's no because seduction didn't exist before seventeen hundred is because that's when seduction narrative as we understand it was born and the book is about this very powerful strange and modern thing seduction narrative which was basically invented in the eighteen th century and the product of a response to a whole new wave of ideas about the human mind about what we now think of. Feminism will prototype eminem and also about the discovery of sexual freedom as part of the blue celebrating our freedom and the enlightenment and before then you had a situation where sexuality was heavily pleased. It was subject to legal and religious interrogation and you know in America. Of course you had The puritans were very big on sexual policing but also in and the rest of Europe as well and over the course of the eighteenth century that whole value system changed. By the end of the Eighteenth Century Sexual Freedom was for granted and to be cleared. Sexual Freedom for them was not the sexual freedom that we now cherish worry about. That really meant that women go to choose. Who They married. That's where the foundation sexual freedom was not explains basically every Jane austen novel for instance. That is the undependable. The plus. They're out of plenty other novels besides and then more generally a kind of increasingly faraji towards male sexuality in particular so you see the rise of the double standard would be in spectacularly bad behavior of the rates of London and Paris Venice. You say that there were three modes of thought that really gave rise to the modern seduction narrative liberalism materialism and feminism. Let's talk about liberalism for example. How does that bring us? But we consider to be seduction as it is today in John. Look Letter of colouration. He He makes us interesting comment race. Is that basically? Everyone is going to have to look after their own. Their prospects of their own souls so liberalism is no longer going to tell people how to live their lives and what to do and instead they're going to have to have their own moral accounting and if in the religious view if they'd be living badly that we dealt with in the off the world it's not gonNA dealt with by the government and the President and obviously if you think about it back then because up until that point they'd be bathing policing sexuality quite a lot and sexuality was once you're saying okay. Everyone's GonNa look after their own moral well-being and the government's going to step out of it. The second and third order consequence of that include a increasingly hands off attitude towards sexuality and basically people are left to make their own decisions and see how how ends up so. It's not that people sat around in the late seventeenth century and said we're going to invent liberalism and one that includes sexual freedom sexual freedom flowed quite logically from this this view that we're not going to try and make everyone lived where he wants them to and that's because they tried that in Seventeenth Century. Europe and being horrific bloodshed and wars and everything else and they wanted you to move beyond that how it's addiction flow from materialism again because we'll be philosophers like like Locke and hume. They were kind of operating on the assumption that we're living in a godless world and they they were very careful how they frame that and Voltaire as well. Then we're castle how. They framed that because of course you won't read out to be an atheist but once you get to the position where we're saying. Okay they're not angels and devils and there's no Holy Spirit brought in the world and instead it's just individuals with brains achieving reality once you make those leaps you can move from new Ford away from this moralistic view of sexuality and towards an idea and that's like psychological view of reality and that's seduction narrative dramatize is this internal monologue about reason about passionate about desire and not basically the entire genre of the novel possible. And if you read these early novels like Richardson who had discussed at some length. Those books now in the more or less unreadable right ABBA time now. If you're named Pamela centrally forced to read Samuel Richardson so you know it comes with the you've read it that I have read and Shamanov so yes so been down that unfortunate path. To what extent is the history of seduction also a history of power and power dynamics? One way of looking at it is that it's not a matter of about power. One way of looking at it is that in fact sexual freedom is empowering and people who practice sexual freedom or taking control of their lives and our free liberated individuals and not seeing a strain and food since the Enlightenment Henry Fielding Mary Wilson Kroft Plus He Shelley Mary Shelley Khatri at all the way up to the present where people you know saying well. People shouldn't be telling me how to live my life. So I'm not I'm not part of it. Basically rejects the idea that seduction is about power and it says actually selections about about freedom and choice but obviously power is a complex thing to discuss. But I root it's about coercion and seduction it about agency. And as soon as our collides with especially in situations where you know that sexual inequality economic inequality there's racial inequality very quickly. We can see how adoption courtship can shade into something daca. You go into issues around race and seduction and in particular America's laws and attitudes around race in the book talk about those parts of the book America in the nineteen. Th Century developed this very extensive body of state laws placing seduction and eventually America how to federal law. The man act which was essentially a seduction Laura in everything but name and in the American south. Clearly it wasn't just a question of the law there were lynchings and these lynchings were often justified by reference to alleged sexual assaults or you know interracial relationships happening not not as true all the way up to an until so. It's not just that was seduction literature. Racial is clearly that was a very serious and horrifying epidemic of racial violence. Often had a sexual subtext. But in the case of the laws the laws designed to empower kind of racial scrutiny of sexual relationships and the mind acts was used to in California was used to prosecute lots of Japanese immigrants who had interracial relationships in the northeast and the Midwest where there were lots of Jewish immigrants or Polish German immigrants. It was used to kind of put further scrutiny communities and then the story. I tell about Joe Johnson who was the first black heavyweight champion of the world it was used to basically hound this man who they couldn't lynch or there were several attempts to do so until they tried to to get him in the courts. Did You keep the book focused on heterosexual seduction or do you cover sex relationships as well? I mentioned overseeing the enlightenment though. Is this on Abrasion of sexual freedom. I should have a code of that. Which obviously it was a celebration of heterosexual. Freedom of sexual freedom was not tackled until the nineteen sixties and seventies and beyond. So I do keep a focus on on heterosexual relationships but the simple reason is that that's deduction narrative of itself was born about this new idea of celebrating sexual freedom without sexual freedom did not include the same sex and curious about the origin of this book. Like is this something that you began before you were at waterstones is the nonfiction or a one of the nonfiction buyers or did this kind of evolve. Why hasn't anyone written about this? And getting all these other books about these other things but there's no good history of seduction. The funniest seed of this book was what I was living in America just finished Grad School in DC. And I was just reading novels like dangerous liaisons and a hero of our time and I kind of kept on coming across this theme of the Seduction Narrative. And it just wouldn't go away and it kind of knew it away me for several years and I kind of this whole history of the seduction laws which I find well fascinating and weird and then of course in in our own time. A lot of things have happened. The rise of the pick up this online dating or the rest of it. I had this of intuition that there was a story And it was the story larger than just what was going on now that it had a history and yeah. I was pretty much convinced that every day. Open the newspaper and someone in Britain the book but they never did give it a go. Well this segment is going up on Valentine's Day so it feels appropriate to ask you about your favorites seduction narrative. Dangerous liaisons novel is is is absolutely amazing. I would recommend twenty one I. It's incredibly that it was actually written two centuries ago and there have been several great adaptions of it and they were to the nineteen eighty s and then those cruel intentions made out of it in the ninety s which I think is fantastic film still. I mentioned briefly a hero of our time by lemon of again. I think everyone should read that book. And it was an incredible and the Russians were really heavily influenced by the English narrative. They will read some Richardson. They'd read Palmer and Clarisa. Bridgeton is name checked in Eugene Oregon. And of course they wrote obsessed with Byron who was a kind of mythical seducer lifetime and so the whole Russian tradition wouldn't really exist without those two figures and he said in London. Tolkien postgame also tolstoy as well all right well. I guess plenty of people to read over Valentine's Day maybe not moves people's chosen activity and this particular day but if if you are alone with book those are the ones to pick up in addition to of course deduction clement. Thanks for being here

Jo Johnson, Prime Minister’s Brother, Quits Parliament
"Him British prime minister Boris Johnsons brother Joe Johnson stepped down from his dual roles as a cabinet minister and a member of parliament yesterday citing an unresolvable tension between family and the national interest it's the latest in a series of defeats for Boris Johnson who's attempting to strong arm parliament into backing his hardline views on the nation's withdrawal from the European
Explainer 181: Brexit: will it ever end?
"The british people have voted to leave the european union and the will must be respected. It was not a decision that was taken lightly. Blink not least because so many things were said by so many different organizations about the significance of this decision. If anyone is still keeping ping score it is now one thousand one hundred and sixty eight days since a narrow majority of what was then the british electorate primarily the non london in english electorate voted to take the united kingdom out of the european union as we go to where it is fifty six days until the u._k. Is due to actually leave the e._u. Having missed a couple of deadlines already there is something undeniably opposite in the current prime minister boris johnson being a former journalist. It is not too late to save pretzel boris. Johnson's government had a working majority she just about thanks to the expensive acquiescence of the democratic unionist party of northern ireland on tuesday that waifish advantage vanished when philip levy conservative member bracknell defected to the liberal democrats. I wish i wish i wish i followed later you too in the week by former labor and independent group m._p. Luciana berger. It's not impossible that by the time you listen to this jo swinson might be running the country and kyle the prime minister what advice she has for women across the country on how to deal with those men who think they could we do a better job are not prepared to do the actual work none of which it turned out made much difference to the week's crucial votes in the house of commons as we learned a number of conservative m._p.'s also oppose not deal brexit enough to vote against their own prime minister and in so doing prompt their prime minister to expel them from the conservative benches. It says everything you need to know about the polarizing effects of brexit that these rebels now outcasts were comprised of the mildest characters on the tory side of the house including former chancellors philip hammond and ken clock and cynical assumes the grandson of winston churchill. I want to make clear that i've always believed the referendum. Results must be honored and indeed. I voted for the withdrawal agreement on every occasion is is being presented to the highest which is more than can be said for my right on the front of the prime minister the leader of the highest and all the members of the cabinet who ciro disloyalty has been such an inspiration to so many any of this to speak. These punishments were followed by the resignation of m._p. Joe johnson the brother of boris johnson. If we are take boris johnson at his word and there is mountainous evidence that this is a hazardous course he still wants a withdrawal deal but wishes to keep the no deal option shen in play as a negotiating ploy this makes on the face of it since it is rarely wise to limit your options in such circumstances although the no deal brexit strategy is not so much a threat to walk out of the rug shop as a threat to shoot yourself in both feet and then sort of bleed all over the stuff while screaming but parliament seems reasonably enough to believe that i know deal brexit which is the present legal default bolt is not a risk worth running. The obvious resolution to the impasse would be a general election but the u._k. Appears now to find itself in the curious position of having a prime minister who wants a general election but says he doesn't squaring off against positionally who doesn't want to general election and says does as we wanted an action photographing is the appeal of an early election suggested date is october. Fifteenth is clear enough to johnson the plan would be to win a mandate condemn the labor party to to further disarray use a majority to pass some sort of withdrawal agreement and claim a great triumph and even if it doesn't work out quite like vast he'd still it'll be prime minister until at least two thousand twenty four. It's just as easy to see why johnson wouldn't want an election just after a new deal brexit especially if it's as bad the government's own projections predict people deprived of food and medicines unlikely to behave gratefully at the ballot box but due to the arcana no no of the u._k.'s fixed term parliament act it is not possible for johnson to simply cold and election. He requires an amount of cooperation from the opposition who do not seem inclined to give it at least not yet on wednesday night. Labor voted against johnson's motion for a general election lead jeremy corbyn corbin said that the bill blocking a no deal brexit would need to become law. I the offer the election. Today is a bit like the offer of an apple to snow white in the wicked queen because what he's offering is an apple or even election but the poison of ano- dale said an election in october still seems is likely the not the large bets on the result would be ill advised the u. K. you may have noticed is in a strange mood on the basis that the usual usual foam with brexit has been whatever is the most ridiculous theoretical outcome is probably what will actually happen. Another hung parliament causing another election within in six months seems a decent punt and or an amount of comic justice may be at hand the key underpinning of boris johnson's korea in public. Life is his hotly debatable conviction of his own destiny as some churchillian colossus it would be something if the shambles he did so much orchestrate ashes him into the footnotes and pub quizzes as britain's briefest prime minister while we're keeping score of things he's still seventy six days short <music>. I'm andrew miller <music>.
