"Decline the the Democratic Party abandoning parts of its traditional core. If you don't look at those questions then it always ends up for mystery right Kylie and there's also a mystery and then the only answers are like religious almost and and you know it's like you just just kind of do incantations but what I mean need get us deeper into just how dangerous the you came media is and why they've rate wage this unrelenting war against Corbet and connected I mean actually you already explained the why but maybe just a little bit more details into the monopolies and how they affected but then may be connected to do this incredible conversation about antisemitism because one I mean look I I think that from where I see it. There is a little bit more sort of overt antisemitism across the board in the UK than there is in the United States. That's changing. We've got a press corps. Our approved a group that are talking about Jacuzzi here. White House press corps proof but the Conservative Party in in the UK in both. It's like traditional like inbred grandee tradition. These are not fans of Jewish. The people The former speaker of the parliament John Berko in interview couple of weeks ago where he said. Of course Jeremy Corbyn is not an anti Semite and is a member of the Conservative Party and said look. I've never experienced any anti Semitism from Labor. I have experienced it from other parties or Party in the UK and then in the very modern two thousand nineteen version. Boris Johnson has apparently been advised by Steve Bannon he is tight eight with Donald Trump. There are the same types of spillovers of all of the new. You know all right Nazi type movements you you know currying their influence as they are obviously in the United States in the UK even as one Corbyn in the leadership. The ship have condemned antisemitism and then of course the other issue that gets involved here is Is the conflation of absolutely correct. Essential essential and valid criticism of the of the state of Israel conducting. You know brutal horrific systemic human rights abuses on a daily basis And making that antisemitism. So you know. Those three things needs to be kind of teased apart. And and I think the media thing connects because yes I mean if you read the UK. I mean there's a big blessing and sanders here if you read the UK press it it would make sanders look like he was getting You know the press coverage of You know it's interesting. I think obviously I wanted to go into the. US already very skewed against them. But as you say nowhere near I'm skewed as the coverage a job here but carbon I think hockey reasons collectors been off the pitch for a long time in the United States. and so you're so you're kind of Media culture is is wet organized in demonizing the the you know insurgent socialist figures whereas here particularly because of what we had the nineteen seventy s and nineteen eighties. And you think of things like the miners strike. AWW that You have oppressed. That's very well able organized around demonizing left wing Socialists. Because they know how to do it Jeremy Corbyn case they went around everything until they find one. That's that's that's the truth of it right so Jeremy Corbyn laser the IRA. Jeremy Corbyn is friends with us. Jeremy Corbyn You know I won't sing the National Anthem. He didn't thousand fishermen sanitize the you know what you think about the queen in fact just today. Two major newspapers Twenty page stories. Jeremy Corbyn and doesn't know the time of the Queen's speech speech Christmas Day completely absurd. That's a so go running. Jesus Christ I mean how many votes extra.

Johnson's Suspension Of Parliament Was 'Unlawful,' U.K. Court Rules
"Support for NPR comes from James Madison University named for the man known as the father of the US constitution presenting the next Madison Vision Series Lecture on November fourth learn more at J. Dot Mu Slash Civic British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has lost big votes again and again in parliament and now he has suffered a huge defeat in court the UK Supreme Court has ruled against the prime minister. Let's remember Johnson suspended parliament for five weeks in what was seen seen as an effort to limit debate on Brexit. Will that is the act that the court has found to be illegal and let's bring. NPR's Frank Langfitt who is in the English seaside aside city of Brighton this morning frank. Hey Good Morning David. What exactly is the court saying here well if you remember. David Johnson argued that he needed this long extension so we could work on his legislative agenda but lady Brenda Hall. She was speaking for the eleven justices this morning and she said the suspension effectively prevented legislators from doing their job. This is the way that she put it. It had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of parliament want to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification. Okay frank a big setback for the prime minister. I mean after a series as of setbacks in parliament now defeated in the courts date has not WanNa vote yet. So how is he is. He sounding still upbeat. Well it's interesting he is. He's going along with this. I don't think he has any choice. This was such a resounding verdict from the Supreme Court but he also says he's going to continue with this policy which the plan is we've been talking about is for Britain to leave the European Union on October thirty first one way or the other Johnson of course is in New York for the UN General Assembly meeting and a and here's what he had to say from New York. Obviously this is a but we will respect. We respect the judicial process. I have to say I strongly disagree with what the justices found I didn't think it's writes but we will go ahead and correspondent post-partum comeback. I think is a good case for getting with the Queen's speech anyway. We'll do that and David when he says the Queen's speech what he's talking talking about is he his legislative agenda which he is planned he's supposed to give on October fourteenth so he does plan to go through with that but House Speaker John Berko he he says that parliament will tomorrow and we'll see how they spend that time certainly we're gonNA probably hear a lot more criticism and scrutiny of Johnson's policies in in the days and weeks ahead and practically I mean what what does this mean for among other things specs it in this October thirty deadline politically this. This is yet another setback for Boris Johnson but I don't think you're going to see him back down at all. He's already said to his party. I'm going to do this do or die and he has. I don't think he has a lot of choice there. we are expecting a general election coming up in November or December and certainly Johnson knows that if he goes back on his word he could lose a lot of voters in his greatest fear. Most people who who followed his career his greatest fear would be actually not being able to stay as prime minister and and serving not a very long time well and that brings up the opposition the opposition leader Pro Labor Party and you're actually covering their convention right in in Britain I mean would they have had their own problems. As as this brexit process of been going they have had their own problems. David one thing is they've not been able to come up with a policy that is clear. They're kind of straddling the fence on this but I gotta say today this morning for Labor. This was a a big victory. They were euphoric very excited. Jeremy Corbyn the Labor leary came out on stage. He said this verdict showed that had contempt for democracy heat abused power and this. This is how corporate put it. I invite Boris Johnson in the historic words to consider his position. The become the shortest serving prime ministers have obeyed okay frank. Let's summarize British politics in turmoil and we have no idea what it happens in Brexit is that said about where we still are feels like. It's been that for more than eight years. David N._p._R.'s Frank Langfitt reporting this morning. Thanks so much have you David.

Suspend, disbelief: Parliament and Brexit
"Pressure is rising in the battle between britain's prime minister boris johnson and his opponents in parliament among the british people and even in his own conservative party today. The popular head of its scottish branch ruth davidson announced her resignation yesterday. Mr johnson sparked outrage by announcing suspension of parliament for five weeks. The closure drastically shortens the time lawmakers could use to try to stop britain leaving the european union without a deal on october. The thirty first the response from opposition politicians was furious. I think today will go down in history as the u._k. Democracy died pharmacist doing <music>. Ceuta smashing crab on democracy not forced through no deal exit from the european union last night. Thousands of people gathered outside parliament to protest against what many described as a coup isn't even elected just warns it by by some cross the ozorio members in his abusing all democracy worshiping palmdale so him and his rich friends can push through bricks disgrace who he's using a system system of parliamentary power to ultimately ride free brexit and i think that's the president the prime minister claimed this was a normal way for a new government to behave before setting out its plans for the country in a speech given by the queen but many think the circumstances are different this time. I think what boris johnson is doing in suspending parliament is legal and the constitutional but it is clearly also cynically aimed at shortening anytime that m._p.'s might have to try to do something to stop an ideal brexit on on october thirty first. Tom pete briggs editor. He's suspending parliament for an unusually long time. <hes> and i think the only reason for doing that is to minimize is the chances that m._p.'s have of legislating or finding some other means to stop britain crushing out on october thirty first. If it weren't hamstrung by this how would parliament. I want to go about doing that. Peace plan is to try and pass legislation which after all is monroe <hes> they did something similar in march when they passed whilst legislation against theresa may's wishes to oscar to seek an extension of the brexit deadline and they will try and do this again starting next week but how would that play out in practice. It's difficult to predict what will happen in in the house of commons but the speaker john berko is clearly very much on the side of m._p.'s who wants want to be given the chance to stop an ideal brexit. He believes an m._p. Should have say before. Britain leaves the european union so i think what will what he's likely to happen is that he will commit an emergency debate. The emergency debate will be used to try to craft a bill that will the demand that boris johnson brussels to seek more time whether there is sufficient parliamentary time to pass that bill into law is is an open in question it could pass the commons but it also has to post the lord's and there are very few sitting days in which this can happen so i think it will be a race against time to get this legislation through a race against time made radically worse by by suspending parliament in the first place i mean we've talked before about how much mr johnson may or may not actually want to crash out with an ideal you you. You've said it might just be a negotiating tactic to to to look tough yet. This looks like he just simply wants it now. I think he's doing things he wants is to send a message to brussels and other capitals that n._a._t._o. Brexit is a real possibility and that he is going to do his up based to stop m._p.'s m._p.'s including m._p.'s from his own party from frustrating it. He also wants to send a signal to akers of the of nigel rogers brexit party that he agrees with them and he's doing his best to deliver what farraj calls clean brexit what other people call nato brexit whether he really wants a nato brexit i think is not quite mike clip because he's always said that he prefer he would prefer to leave with a deal but given the time constraint it look increasingly likely that it could end up being a native brexit exit to do you think that he has made good faith efforts to try to get a deal struck i think when you went to berlin and paris to meet leaders and then met the began the group of seven summit in in biarritz they were impressed with the view that he genuinely wants to try to sort a compromise that would pass parliament against that they think his dimond which is to remove completely the backstop that is designed to prevent there ever being a hard border owed with ireland is
All aboard the Boris Express
"Sensible Rex it fights off the threat from the insurgent Brexit party. And I have to say that, that is a the job that I believe I'm best suited to do today. Bus Johnson came out fighting yesterday to finally launch his bid the next prime minister as the field of candidates narrows impulsion way out in front can anything derail the bars express. Also this week, we'll be looking at whether any of the contenders promises on Brexit tax cuts, and the economy actually stuck up past all in this week's politics weekly. It was standing remain the at the Notre Johnson's leadership bid yesterday with hard Brexit is and conservative rising stars. All that show support with maybe an on the job in the next cabinet at the time of recording. We don't know who hasn't who hasn't got the sixteen th needs to stay on the list of contenders. But we can probably see in that Johnson Dominic Robb, Jeremy hunt, Michael Savage, avid, and Matt Hancock all on there at the moment. The contest is bosses to lose. Is he really the best man for the job or anything? Well, I'm joined to discuss all this by Isabel Harbin, from the spectator Jonathan list from British influence and politics from the guardian. How do you think the boss when yesterday sort of emerge unscathed sufficiently boring enough? Well, that was certainly a was to make it doll safety, I, which is really the, the theme of borstal since campaign when he's allowed out to speak. The aim is basically to try to make him look a bit more serious politician. And so, in terms of his speech, and in terms of I think the way he answered the questions will didn't answer them in loss of cases. I think his team would have been quite pleased with that. There was one thing that, that over-shadowed it bit thing, which was that some MP's as she heckled journalist for asking Johnson, a very reasonable question about his comments about walking women who were berkers, and it's often the case activists from parties. Get annoyed with journalists for us dear leader inconvenient questions, but it's still quite unusual for MP's to do that. And I'm not God load of welfare candidate. It's very badly for. Candidate. It makes them look defensive as they call something to hide and what I thought made it. Worse was Liz trust. One of Boris Johnson supporters that went on TV to defend her colleagues heckling saying that they were entitled to question the questions of journalists, which, I think it would be much easier. Just to say, I think some of my colleagues over excited here can also himself, the, the idea of being PM. I've been laughed at a few months ago, and an and I think that probably we thought that his colleagues had lost trusted him toy MP's lost trust in him. Particularly his performances foreign secretary. Why are they running behind? This is being quite extraordinary. It's the conservative party completely losing any sense of responsibility for the fate of the nation, the party that used to be the solid, the reliable, the party of government has become wild reckless revolutionary because they think he is the only person who might. Squeak past in general election, and save them from both thorough and from Corbin unsaved, their seats and save that party. He might on the other hand be the final explosive device that blows the whole thing apart. It might be that he is so poorly that if he really does take us out of Europe. Ota no deal that the conservative party makes it self unelectable forever afterwards because of the self inflicted chaos caused, but they reckon that as things stand, he might save them this eat a very low reason choosy. Doesn't. He He seems seems to to have been. been concentrating quite a lot on just on just securing the backing of MP's announcing a thing you know, particularly controversial into things. I think a tax cut and also that he would leave with thirty. I is just him kind of keeping things. Very simple. As best route to success is only seem sort of the moment. If you all the kind of the pole position candidate of your day you won't have any controversy under Johnson is famous for that. And so he's, he's just letting the ship go on. If you like Theresa May to the Cima thing in a way in two thousand sixteen. When she just washed everyone else, self combustion. She was the last person standing there. The problem for Johnson is that he's told the truth extraordinarily when he said that the tour spaced extinction, if it didn't liver Brexit both thirty Tober there is no way on earth. They can deliver Brexit thirty post Tober. There are a couple of weeks parliamentary time after the summer recess where nothing can be done sell you that can. No more renegotiation, and no more led to legislation. And so he's already made a rod for his own back, that the first thing he'll have to do is prime minister is go to the EU and asked to stay in it. So already the trust will be will we smash I can't understand why the Tories don't understand that. And conversely, if you did try to get that no deal. As police said, if you actually went over the cliff, and then Boris Johnson would never be forgiven out the toys, wouldn't either and then parliament, probably humiliates him and try to stop it anyway. So there's really no way through him that he can emerge from this with any kind of credibility whatsoever. Smell somebody other candidates have tried to gain a bit of credibility people like Jamie hunt, and my ankle by saying, actually it's very difficult to leave with no deal deal no deal by thirty because his Dunton's laid out. You know, it's difficult to negotiate in that anything new in that time. And also because parliament is like to stop an ideal Brexit. Do any of those candidates avenue chance of beating him when it comes to the runoff thinking people? Turn me on all the sausage avid month ago. Jeremy hunt or such genital Mike who gave the most light, he might Hancock, he mentioned, this is probably going to get knocked out, either in this round or the next one because he just doesn't have enough of a constituency within the conservative party and his pitch. We went to his launch on Monday, his pitch was slightly crazed or have. Difficult to sort of pinned on what he believed other than motivational aphorisms. I felt like I was spinning class well to relationship. The other say are trying to sort of offer a bit more realistic Brexit plan. And that's tricky in the current Tory party, because the mood in the party is not really one for any further delay. They're still reacting to the procrastination of Theresa May. I'm perhaps, not looking at the situation that she's left the party. And in trying to work out the best way out of that they just don't want anyone who's going to put it off any more, and that's why Boris Johnson. Dominic Robb were the only two candidates who even got auditions before the European research group, which is the, the most Brexit he group in, in the conservative party, and has a huge amount of power, not just in the parliament party. But also, I think amongst the conservative membership. So it's tricky, because I think there is Brexit. Purity contest going on at the moment that doesn't bear a great deal of relation to reality of those putty of, of Michael Savage. Avid, Jeremy hunter DC is having the most. Likelihood of beating Johnson, what I suppose it would be go, if he can recover from the ca- Cain hypocrisy, which really sunk him oughta rolls astonishing. But maybe he can be forgiven in which case he's much the strongest contender. He knows burst back front if he really decides to put the knife in again, as he did last time he could be very effective when one of the candidates, not really talking about a tool anymore. She was quite strangest Dominic Robb. Who did you know sort of seen as maybe he could be the true Brexit tier candidate when Boris you know, it folded early than him said he was gonna vote trees may deal. But he's lost all of that year. G support to Boris what he used on the sue the winner under Johnson is going to match rob pound for pound in Brexit. Then those no reasons about rob who is much less sympathetic charming character. You have question marks over his personal character, which haven't quite been addressed. And who is has the kind of eight. Tori. Boy thing about him bay, which is going to not be particular turn, onto the tweet party was certainly not to the wider electric. Yes. So that's always don't since we've not now all the space is really ain't rob is also tainted, his, he didn't leave the cabinet obviously, after the check is agreement that was Boris, who did that? And, and Boris Johnson is therefore able to, to claim that he is more Brexit Pierce. We come back to this incredible sort of holy Brexit. Contest is going on the Johnson survived. The backstop no one's talking about the box December. Twenty seventeen Theresa May sign us up to customs union a great time. Johnson was he knew what it was. And then after extraordinarily when he left the company said he didn't know what it was. So he was basically saying that he was the gullible stupid or liar. I didn't seem to matter because he's tashaun. It's fascinating how there's actually a higher bar for the behavior of all the other candidates part from Boris. Johnson is something his team say the whole, always purse. Life is priced in. It's almost as though he could actually have killed people. And that would also trunks shooting Fifth Avenue, the front runners who've said that they are the two, I suppose we, if we still count rob amongst the front runners that they've said that we prepared to take the UK out of the EU with no deal on October thirty first Burston Dominic Robb, the others of, of sort of said that they think it's possible that parliament would be up to stop that. But we saw yesterday at there was an opportunity for parliament to set in motion for that to be another to at least reserve another date to try and pass a law to stop it. And Isabel some people listening and probably anyone who's not been following this with the minute detail of a full-time job gonna find it quite quoted to hear that it was defeated last night, feels like parliament's voted against no deal. Quite a few times, and what can you maybe you could explain to me about what happened last night? Here's those interesting topics going on last night. You had a group of conservative MPC voted with labour on this vote, which was to allow Paul. Lament to rule out no deal in future vote just to complicating confuse matters even further. But then you had a group of labor MP's, who voted with the government people like katoey, who obviously, managed to enrage their policy on, on regular basis, with their with that Brexit views, and you also had a number of ubstantially as well. And so this is turned the labor party in on itself again, with the very pro remain pro second referendum, anti no do, and, like, Ben Bradshaw, friends since turning on their colleagues and saying how much they've let the party downs. We, we've got another labor split here. This is a big boost to those candidates. He believe parliament actually won't stop new deal. I suppose it is if, if there is a mechanism for stopping teaches clear what that make an ISM could be done that all of the people like all of let win been out this morning that the Taurean peon and the former Tory bowl saying that this was the last chance, there are no more assigned opposition day debates. Which the government has to grant, but in power to grant labor time to have debates on things where they want, but those, those days of now, run out, and there's also no obvious legislation going through parliament for for amendments to be attitude that could stop no deal. So what is the root pop from a confidence vote without is the nuclear button, the confidence. But I think that we need to look at John berko hear abo- cove is cost himself as some kind of maverick revolutionary when it sees him, and he is prepared to cost aside, conventions and rewrite the rulebook. I mean, I'm not an expert in, in three parliamentary etiquette and protocol. So I don't know exactly how much power he has. But it seems that he can rewrite us in may sort of as he goes along. So if he decides if parliament has a will, to introduce legislation, very quickly as cupid early this year, and they all given an opportunity to vote for that. I just can't see any way which was say no. The procedure says, unfortunately, what happened last night is that. Parliament decided not to have the opportunity, it'll make it very difficult. I think for berko to devise anything also you're asking him to do something way out of anything he's done so far. I think we're going to end up with whether there will be enough conservative MP's willing to bring the house down willing to have a virtual no-confidence in what who will presumably be Boris MP appear them and a call for general election. And I just don't know when it comes to it, whether the likes of people who have very anti Brexit, whether they'll really go that for what do you think is about? Do you think enough of them to actually agree with? That would be if you get government. And then in the confidence that you lose it. Yeah, I think that is your way basically saying, I've it with the conservative party who knows that things are quite Phibro at the moment till they, there is less of a thirst for leaving parties given. What's happened to change? You K because I think that stuff Shane, how difficult it is to, to go to loan from a big structure this being rumbling along for many decades labor LaTour. He's, I suppose we can, we also have to see what happens over the course the leadership contest. If Boris Johnson has heart and his position over summer to try and win over very hard. Brexit. Selectric una comes parliament is still sitting at the end of July, when he's elected then that could be the moment where his colleagues, Dominic grieve just in greening, maybe say in office enough. You're going to take on the touch toba. We know having it. And then you trigger that election, when there's still time to stop no deal. Three months later, but they will not be allowed to stand as conservative. I mean that only. Seats are there enough of them, we don't sacrifice their careers for the sake of the country? And that's what it'll come to possibly. There are enough noble minded people willing to do that. I mean, I guess one of the things that we haven't touched on his whether it's it is possible for any of these candidates to get any kind of new deal bioterr- thirty. I, I mean, we of laughing about that. But if it comes to the crunch, d think that there are people who maybe didn't believe Theresa May was prepared to take that with no deal. But may believe that someone I on snus. Well, this is the line that the sort of the Boris style candidates of news, the European Union, saying they're not going to reopen the withdrawal agreement, they're not going to start renegotiating any way. They say will they would say that wouldn't they that's kind of, you know, they're starting line in the Goshi -ation, and perhaps studies, the stance, the European Union, that will then fold when suddenly this new powerful conservative leader comes in, but even. The leadership candidates who claim they're trying to be more realistic like Jeremy hunt, for instance, still saying they want to reopen the withdrawal agreement. So all of them are prompting something that according to what has been said, so far is not realistic. How would it look from Europe? The EU is tied to these games it's actually written into the extension that you can't renegotiate withdrawal agreements that is put, so the box office and changing the only thing in might be able to. And this is a purse is to renegotiate a political declaration, which isn't going to be enough, because it has no legal way. But more importantly, there are only two things you can do the political declaration, the first is to soften it. So you explicitly asked to negotiate accustomed on a single market, which is obviously not help any, the Tories or you hard in it in the pad on the backstop, just Northern Ireland and not cleaves the concert. India's partying one clean slice. So there's nothing that they can do, which will help them tool on the backstop is simply not of negotiation. It's only use political interest to sacrifice its. Leverage for a prime minister. He hates them and the feelings mutual. Thanks willie. Back after this.
Explainer 157: Oh Brexit, where art thou?
"Uh-huh. The beginning of this week, and such is the effect. Brexit has on our perceptions of time the beginning of this week. Now feels like something that happened before the ball war. There was a gathering consensus that didn't you want to the Brexit fiasco was at last looming. The UK's Prime Minister Theresa may now making the limbless and defiant black Knight from the one and the holy grail seem model of philosophical pragmatism was seeking to put her EU withdrawal deal to parliament full the third time uncowed by the fact that its previous to submissions had resulted in the biggest and fourth biggest defeats ever inflicted on British governments Bill the is to the right. Two hundred forty two the nose to the left three hundred ninety one. View was nevertheless forming but maize plan for another. Go was not quite as mad as it sounded that with the March twenty ninth deadline looming. All but the most crazed of Brexit ahead. Bangers would understand that maze? Root out of the EU was now the only one realistically on offer and fall in behind it, a vote cast reluctantly counts the same as any of them. They might still have been a delay. It is far from clear that parliament has time to enact all necessary legislation before much twenty nine but the two thousand and sixteen referendum result would be honored. The UK would be leaving the EU may had emphasized and correctly that any delay without defined end. Would risk this blessed event not occurs toll. And as I say there is a danger. Failure to agree. A deal that actually could end up in a situation where we have no Brexit as. On monday. However, the speaker of the house John berko in the manner perhaps of a boxing referee, taking mercy only battered barely conscious contender and calling the fight confounded may scheme. Bucko invoked a splendidly vintage president of parliamentary procedure dating back to sixteen four which precludes governments from pestilential repeat introductions of bills previously voted down. The government kennel legitimately do is to resubmit to the house the same proposition ball substantially the same proposition as of last week, which was rejected by one hundred forty nine. Thanks main seemed genuinely surprised by coz intervention, though, she should not have been mostly because berko a piece to have a legitimate point. But at least, partly because throughout the Brexit process bucco has given every indication of very much in. Enjoying the bright of the neutral spotlight has shown upon the speaker's chair. Unless substantial changes were made to Theresa May's Bill ruled berko, it would not be readmitted, given that substantial changes to not seem possible without the acquiescence of the EU who have already made it clear that they won't be any that would appear to be it. Unless inevitably this being Brexit. It isn't. As we go to a various ruses being suggested for dragging maze. Withdraw agreement back into the ring including vote to overrule. The speaker will even asking the Queen to prorogue the current session of parliament and then open a new one. Although again with barely eight damn days to go until Brexit is supposed to happen. It is debatable that there is much more time for such nonsense. If it's hard enough to make sense of what has happened making sense of what will happen is like teaching dog to play the banjo. You can try, but what would be the point. It's possible to say what the possible outcomes are the current default of a no deal Brexit, an orderly Brexit next Thursday as planned a delay to Brexit general election, a second referendum, but such has been the up ending of logic by breaks that VO one of these surely has to occur. They all seem somehow unlikely we have reached the point at which an invasion of England by Scotland wouldn't seem all that surprising on balance and mood in many respects be a relief. Meanwhile in keeping with the satirizing tradition, which has characterized Brexit from the off this past weekend. The unrig generate Brexit ultras of the leave means leave campaign commenced, an epic March from Sunderland to London to protest what they perceive as the imminent, betrayal. In miserable. Cold, pouring, rain. The few dozen would be golden souls who reported for the March to leave as it is known will lead by Nigel Farraj at least for about the first five hundred yards. Very arguably, not the first time Farraj has got a bunch of credulous saps round up about some vainglorious fully and then left them to when the going tough. As we go to where little is known of whatever survivors applauding grimly own on shed. Joel seeming they have not given up a run wild and resorted to cannibalism these full-on footsore stragglers shortly June Pontefract, they are entitled to observe.

It's going to be really exciting to hear what Angela Merkel has to say a little bit later on the way, you are. Yeah. Absolutely. Especially considering the well the Brexit saga took a fascinating turn yesterday as John berko set the house of Commons can't listen to the same the same proposal more than once in any parliamentary session. And now Theresa May is reportedly going to ask for a nine to twelve month extension. So that will be fascinating to hear miracles take on that are editor in chief John Mickel tweet. He's gonna sit down with her around noon for a Bloomberg interview. And I urge viewers to tune in and listen to that. Quickly. We'll take a look at what's going on in markets. This morning. Really not a lot. If you're looking at equity index is in Asia, we see some red arrows for the most part the nikei down fractionally as is the Hang Seng index, you do see a slight gain in the nifty fifty and a slight gain the sense sense ex. But for the most part, we see drops, and you also see equity index futures falling slightly just fractionally in London and here in Frankfurt is as well. Although US equity index futures are gaining not a lot of change obviously in currency markets. Well, actually, you might have expected the the pound to move substantially and it did kind of whip whip saw round but came right back to one thirty two seventy two euro one thirteen forty six. And you could buy one hundred eleven and a quarter yen for your dollar just quickly. What a look at oil Ameri Hordern is still over there in Baku, John, and we got those headlines out of OPEC and friends yesterday right now Brent crude is sixty seven fifty five a barrel. Nymex WTI at fifty eight ninety seven so relatively high prices of oil holding steady, Marcus. All right. It is six thirty two here in London and Bloomberg daybreak is out on customer terminals, bringing you all the news. They need to start your day. We're going to check the top headlines with daybreak editor Christine buck who's live for is out of Dubai. Christine said we kick it off with Brexit. Then Theresa May now widely expected to seek an extension to Brexit. What's likely to happen in the coming days? What we actually know. Well, jeez. What a difference that we've seen the last twenty four hours making this entire process going from thinking that we would possibly see a third vote to probably not having that third vote at all. I want to draw our listeners attention to two reports in particular that have caught my attention this morning. The first is from the sun, which is saying that Theresa May is actually working at the moment to draft a formal request to send the e that would be for an extension of Brexit for nine to twelve months. I'm so that's one thing that's being reported on. There's also another. Out in the guardian which is saying that the EU is considering changing the exit date of Brexit to July first from March twenty ninth. And by doing that, the idea is that changing that date would change the Brexit deal enough to possibly allow Burke how or possibly push Burke out to allow a third vote to go ahead in parliament. But those are just reports that has the that are swirling around we are hearing that may is expected to to head to Brussels later this week. So we'll be watching that closely as we always are with Brexit. I mean, this is just changing every minute every day. It's it's crazy. It blows my mind. It is fantastic. I mean, that's great news for us as journalists. Right. Yeah. Yeah. It's a gift doesn't stop giving. And frankly, the berko move it. It would seem like, you know, boring procedural obvious parliamentary rule, but shocking to me that the government had no idea about it considering how often it's been used in history in any case, let's turn to the US China trade talks. We haven't talked enough about this today US agricultural secretary. Perdue says that China could triple its purchases of American farm goods. What else did we learn about a potential trade deal? I mean, well, what the US agriculture secretary was saying was that if a trade deal does happen than what we could see from China is a doubling or tripling of those farm. Good purchases in two. Two to five years, if you didn't have much to say about the actual status of talks, and perhaps, you know, you said we haven't talked about this enough. But maybe that's because there there have been a whole lot of new developments on the trade talk front. But what we do know is that agriculture is very much in play and in discussions and Sonny. Perdue went on to say that China increasing farm purchases is one of the easiest things that it could possibly do as part of the larger trade negotiations. So I was a bit of optimism. I was being sarcastic. We talked about it enough. We have we have talked about trade a lot pops in the past couple of days, or so now one story that we have talked about in the past couple of days is the Boeing story. Reuters now reporting the Canada's reexamining its approval of the seven three seven max plane. What's the latest? There isn't there are couple of stories out in regards to what Reuters is reporting is noting that Canada just basically thinks that it's a good idea to review the validation of certification that it gave two Boeing seven thirty-seven max. Basically Canada had accepted the FAA certification on that. And we know based on stories out over the last couple of days that certification process has been called into question a bit. So candidate is now reportedly looking at that we also got some Collins from Boeing couple of our hours ago, the company did confirm that it does plan to soon. Release a software update. And also said it will update related pilot training for the seven thirty seven max to account for some of the concerns after the lion air incident in particular. I want to get to sex scandal. If I may the Warner Brothers CEO is apparently leaving the studio following some sort of scandal. What is the what is it? What are the details here? So the details all look so brothers CEO. And chairman his name is Kevin Tujia HARA. He is stepping down amid these allegations that he had a sexual relationship with an actress who he then maybe went on to show some favoritism to there are also reports that he is unbelievable in Hollywood. Yeah. Studio boss had an affair with an actress. And now he's showing this is unbelievable. Yeah. I think I think actually the thing that's more concerning. Some of the reports that have surfaced is that he used this relationship with this actress to then get film financing. And so I think that's one of the things that probably would be a bit more question. Just in terms of the conduct of a CEO of a major company. So anyways, those are the allegations he has stepped down. There is not a replacement as of yet. But the company did say that it plans to make an announcement on that at some point today. So I imagine we will get an update maybe when the US day gets underway. I suppose it's all about timing and the whole metoo movement and this happening. Yes. No. That's one hundred percent. And look it's time. It's we've known these things have been happening in Hollywood for what the since movies. Well, since it film forever. It's taken a century for for someone to finally do something about it. And that would be the metoo movement, right Christine. Thanks very much for joining us.

"From townhall dot com. I'm Keith Peters. Speaker of Britain's House of Commons John berko dealt a potentially fatal blow to Prime Minister Theresa May's ailing Brexit deal saying the government couldn't keep asking lawmakers to vote on the same deal. They've already rejected twice this. When he thought that Britain's political crisis couldn't deepen or Brexit, get any more uncertain. It has done just that. Because I don't think it is an exaggeration to say that what John Burke who has done potentially. The speaker is to put a bomb underneath Theresa May's Brexit strategy because essentially saying look that deal the already have rejected twice by MP's in overwhelming numbers e cannot bring it back again, which of course, was her strategy unless the some real change that begs the question well well enough, but this real change come from and hang on a minute.

Let us go to John Craig who is the chief political correspondent at sky needs for roundup of what's been happening in the political world. Good morning to you, Jon morning. Can we kick off with this enormous March so much more so many more people than were expected and seven hundred thousand they recognize the end estimate. Yeah. I've heard lots of different figures about you seen to range between five hundred thousand and seven hundred thousand not as big as the anti Iraq war March back in what was it two thousand? And of course, very little attention. Tony Blair's government pages that Theresa May has repeatedly said that will not be a second referendum. But then she did say, there wouldn't be a general election. Didn't she? Yes. Well, that's the thing about politicians. We can't necessarily believe everything they say that they gain to do all that. They will do all they have done or anything else. Nevertheless, it was actually a certainly did exceed the expectations of the police raids noted that definitely was the case. The species. I guess what what you might call the usual suspects from the remain campaign surprised about data Smith. So the car on a Subaru from the Tories as well Didi Smith. Well, big turnout Sunday. Yes. Begrudge them that. And it's democracy. And my view on is to it's going to be a second referendum. I mean, I wouldn't rule it out because if parliament vote for it. And but I don't quite see a majority forty in parliament yet. I mean labor, of course, as you know, at the conference a few weeks ago decided to keep their options open, but they are divided as well, not just the MP's with some of the big trade unions, like, for example, unite not in favor, whereas some GM. The delicate tightrope really walked by the likes of care Starmer, and Mr. Corbin John McDonnell. So as ever with Labour's Brexit policy. We're not quite sure what they support. No. I think they were ever aware of of. Tiptoeing down the line because of course, quite a load of their heartland voted to leave. I mean, you've got a number of labour backbenchers like Caroline, Flint, for example, a pretty vocal against the second referendum because she's an MP for sequel, dawn valley up judges near Doncaster, and there's plenty of Nolan labor seats seats returned labour MP's over and over again. But when the results came in in two thousand sixteen voted heavily for leave and were one or two seats changed hands at the last election, minefields, one example. Two thousand seat it'd be labor for years, but very pro leave and elected a Tory MP there is there are some jitters among some labor MP's. Of course, those who sit in seats the voted heavily for leaving the scene. Can I just talk about the story, which is on the front page of a number of papers about Theresa May facing a last ditch fight to save her leadership this week again is that it should we just leave it there? Drops it. No. I'm just wondering what your thoughts on that about whether whether you think this is as you say, here's another one. And then we move on. Well, I think the phrase the usual suspects about the remains. But there's a an MP quoted in the mail on Sunday today about how she's got seventy two hours to save her job. Andrew Bridgen who has not sure who. Who he hates more and wants to remove more Theresa May or John berko? He's one of John Burke biggest critics as well. I mean, the the the the timetable is this on Monday. She will go to the house of Commons and make a common statements on what happened in Brussels Tuesday. She's got her cabinet making again, although there's another cabinet meeting pencilled into Thursday, then on Wednesday. Seventy two hours comes in MP's. A of MP is not just the Andrew bridge. Ines and the the malcontents. But a lot of them want her to go to the nineteen twenty two committee, which is the Tory backbenches committee, and defend herself. So she has indeed tough week. My feeling is always been the all those who claim that there are forty eight almost forty eight MP's we want a trigger a leadership contest, I think those numbers are exaggerated and indeed at the Tory conference sa- Graham Brady who chairs the nineteen twenty two committee said it was nothing like the forty eight yet. I I have a hunch that she will survive longer than lots of the pundits. And the the forecasters suggest I'm old enough to remember and cover the the ninety s and John Major's similar sorts of mass. And he limped on he survived a vote of confidence. Of course, he was challenged by John Redwood who still around, of course, any Tim I'm have caught. But of course, the end of that story was that labor labor. Absolutely. Crushed the stories in the nineteen Ninety-seven election. Now, I was talking to the mumps the other day, of course, was around in the nineties John Major's chancellor at one point. And he said, what do you think about the comparisons between now and major domestic rebels and so on he said the big difference? Now is there a formal rebels facing Theresa May and the were facing Joe major which points, I think, well, let's move on to another story, which is in the Sunday Times. And by the way, it was the Sunday Times that it was the tourist Telemachus cost seventy two hours. Listen, I get confused as well, you if you read them, all you, did you think I know somewhere?

I think he's right. I was surprised when I saw that he'd taken this job. He must need the money. I mean, this is Coldplay goes who obviously needs to obviously needs to earn a few bulb. Now only a few years back. He's like two years ago. He writes, a column in the Evening Standard in London saying that they needed to pay more tax. Well, he's not alone in taking that view.

Have you thought you about to play the audio then, but it was? I think sadly, I don't think we've got it. But how have we are just asking the producer? We we don't sadly. I'm sorry. Big enough to do it yourself. The accident. The New Zealand, but what happened was it was what exactly one of the highlights of the parliamentary week it was questions to an MP called Paul Beresford. Now, he is a bit of a ground the seventy plus seventy two I think, and he is on some questions on behalf of the house of Commons commission. This is a chance for peace. So I have a moan about, you know, the toilets in Westminster rats in the trinity and all that nonsense. Anyway, th a Scottish MP called David Linden. Twenty-eight-year-old SMP MP for Glasgow east got up and had a complaint about the access for disabled people in the policy Westminster fair enough. But he's not he has a very Glaswegian accent. I mean, second terms of very heavy accent? The problem was in my view. He spoke very quickly support that he was on seeing the question who is a Kiwi. He's from New Zealand. He made his name as leader wants with counselors been a minister, he's a dentist by profession. He still practices ruled on the second if he's a dentist, John he should be able to understand people because they usually say just as you've got your mouth open all you going anywhere for your holidays. And you say all. And they understand you interrupting me just about to come to my gag thing. Sorry. When it came to understanding, Mr. Linda, and it was like pulling teeth. Anyway, so you Austin to repeat it. So we repeat again, and he still couldn't understand a word. He was so anyway, Lindsey oil the great so Lindsay Hoyle who is my tip for the next speaker MP for Charlie who has a lovely broad Lancastrian accent himself, and there's often been said that each has parliament and a bit like the compared to northern working men's club. He said, I think you'd better send him a letter in writing, and they brought the house staff, and the funny thing was a Welsh MP got up, and he seemed to struggle with him as well. But the prob- I'd say David Linden, speak more. Slowly, that's the problem. Do you know what though John that reminds me of when I worked to put border television. And I went to go and interview a man about he he just wanna queens award for his services for blue blue face sheet. Would you believe, and I went to go and interview Dumfries and Galloway not not full of pits picnic vaccines, which generally difficult to understand? But he's come from somewhere else.
