"So this is my second visit. And I saw some things for the second time on this trip and some of them I remembered way that was true in some of the things I remembered differently than they were true. So there are a lot of spaces that can be productive for art. And sometimes art and artists go into places that other people don't want to be because it's cheaper. It's far away. For whatever reason, right? So Marfa is literally in the middle of nowhere. It's like not just far West Texas. It's like far, far West Texas. It's a solid. The first time I went there to be super transparent, we flew privately from Aspen, and I was like, oh, it's not far. You know? It's like so good. Right. Okay, this is for people that don't know. It's this place in the middle of nowhere and there's a bunch there's a couple buildings. It's not much, right? And everybody knows the Prada store that ends up on Instagram. Yeah. So there are two ways to get to Marfa driving. Okay. You can fly in privately. But it's an airstrip, and it's like the length of this table. So you can fly to El Paso, and it's a solid four hour drive going 90 or a hundred miles an hour. Okay, so it's not close to El Paso. But that's the closest hospital. It's also two hour and 45 minute drive from Midland, Texas. That's where I went. And the drive from Midland, Texas is through, I mean, oil fields and trailers. And it's a part of America that I haven't seen much of. And you're driving along the border if you're coming from El Paso and they're like the big blimps that are looking for people that are trying to cross the border. I mean, it's like harsh. It's set 5000 feet in elevation. So there's the altitude issue. And Donald Judd, who's really the father of minimal art, was looking for a place to live and work. And he had tried a lot of other places, including Santa Fe and some places in Colorado. And he had seen Marfa, while he was in the military while he was on a train that went through town. And these long boxcar trains still go through town every couple of hours. So 200 cars, the train engine, West Texas light at altitude. So it looks different. The light at altitude is different. So he bought up a bunch of military former military barracks, places that German prisoners had been held. And then he invited some of his friends to do site specific art there. So Donald Judd, Dan flavin, who's the artist that makes the work with fluorescent bulbs, John Chamberlain, who's the artist who makes the compressed cars sculptures, none of them are with us on the planet anymore. And because it's a Mecca, younger artists have moved there. And we're not even necessarily. I mean, they're younger artists, older artists. We went to Christopher woolf studio, the head of the chinati foundation, which is where the Donald Judd czar and the chamberlains and the flavins and the Robert Irwin, she said, you can find a Donald Judd behind every doorway here, but good luck finding a sandwich on a Monday. 1400 people live there. It's the poorest county in Texas. And it's just a place with a lot of dichotomies. And that's part of what makes it interesting. The light is beautiful. It's quiet. It's far from other places. And it's worth going to. The Prada Marfa that you're talking about. Was commissioned by the art production fund, and by the ballroom Marfa, and it's two artists elm green and dragsted. And it was their idea. And they actually were going to do Prada, Vegas, and then Avon force, who's one of the founders of the art production fund and said, no, no. I have a better idea. Prada Marfa, and it's been shot at. It's been the door was pulled off. People stole the shoes and the bags. And I don't know, some people love it now. They put up a fence around the back of it and people have put locks on it. One of the Paris bridges or but it's an unusual place. So yeah, it was a cattle town. And now it's, I don't know if I would call it an art Mecca, but it's definitely a place that draws functioning art commune where working artists are actually living there. Yeah, that's a little aggrandized. To what it is. It's a place where artists have found some like minded people and have now driven up the cost of houses because people went on Zillow to check when we were there. But I think it's pretty lonely and pretty isolated. And there's a little bit of a battle for the town, the soul of the town, I think. That's going on. Yeah, it's fascinating. There's something about it that is very resonant though. There's lots of artists communities around the world, but there's something about Marfa that really draws a lot of people in. And I kind of special intangible way. Yeah, I think anything that's hard to do makes something more interesting. So weeds out the looky lose, right? Because it's so difficult to get there. And I talked to the people that I brought with me and I said, you guys are art pilgrims. You know, you don't need me to take you to Miami, you know? I'll take you to in Ho Chi. In Brazil or I'll take you to Marfa, Texas. Let's talk about the NFT thing. So in addition to being kind of in the era of offense, we're also in the era of content in the era of ephemera. There's so much coming at us. You said art is about intent, but if everybody's putting all this stuff out into the world on some, you know, somewhere on the spectrum of this is art or this is just me sharing. Like, a, how do you make sense of all of that? I mean, who is to say, TikTok is an art. I don't know, like maybe you have a grip on that. But that begs the whole NFT thing now. So it's a very strange time where I feel like art is at this pivotal moment. And at the center of the conversation, about what the evolution of the Internet is going to look like and how we make sense of it. And so it sounds like from the way you described it, like you're kind of like, I don't know about all this, but you're slowly being lured in or converted to this idea that real art can exist on that plane. I mean, there's a difference between, I suppose, like what beeple's doing, like grabbing headlines for commanding these massive auctions. Or the board API club versus a bazillion JPEGs on open sea. So how do we make sense of all of that? Yeah. So when people are trying to understand something they often conflate things, right? And so you'll hear people talk about why NFTs matter because they'll say like, well, you know, an artist makes something and then it goes out in the world and then it resells and they don't get anything for it and this solves that problem. And I'm like nothing to do with the art though. At all. And that's like the blockchain, right? And that's about it. Which is cool. Super caring for artists out there. Totally. I'm all for that.

"Oldenburg, David novros, Robert rauschenberg and John Chamberlain, each of them did a very small illustration. Rauschenberg just drew a line while Warhol signed his initials, but in a way that makes them look like a very phallic rocket ship. Altogether, the ceramic tile is referred to as moon museum. And it's never been officially confirmed that the moon museum tile is indeed on the moon. After getting the run around several times when going through official channels, Myers managed to get an engineer to find a safe place for the tile on the lander module, and while it's been confirmed that Apollo 12 astronauts did leave some personal effects on the moon, it's unknown if they removed the tile from the lander and left it there. Nonetheless, Myers claimed they did after getting confirmation that it was on the lander from the engineer, and The New York Times ran the story before the Apollo 12 crew even got back home. Notably with a thumb obscuring Warhol's rude drawing on the photo of the tiny tile. But this time, we all know exactly what art will be installed on the moon, except coons sculptures might not be the first to get there. The verge notes that astrobotic plans to send artwork by Dubai based artist Sasha Jaffrey to the moon on their own lander later this year via United launch alliance's Vulcan rocket. So we'll see which comes first. But I guess in the kind of consolation prize Americans are used to with the space race, coons could at least be the first American to have his authorized artwork on the moon. And here's what Kuhn's himself had to say about his moon phases project, quote I wanted to create a historically meaningful NFT project rooted in humanistic and philosophical thoughts. Our achievements in space represent the limitless potential of humanity. Space explorations have given us a perspective of our ability to transcend worldly constraints. These ideas are central to my NFT project, which can be understood as a continuation and celebration of humanity's aspirational accomplishments within and beyond our own planet. Today's.

"Is one of the things i wanted was to reduce click to base at the fair with that necessarily mean that people conservative in what they did bring because then they would be more guaranteed to sell. Yes absolutely i think for me. Often limited was the first. Let's say not the only one but was the bellwether fat because it opens opens on the monday evening before the main fabric the following day auto limited show mr listeners. Know but just in case you. Don't it's a warehouse space and it's used for very large scale works so could be very big sculpture. Very large paintings often has a lot of video. And it's going to be an early or something up also says it's curated but it's not curated in the way of being is curated so the route themes running through. It does depend what the data's have decided to bring but it can vary from some very very exciting out there installations. You could even have very long video. Just gives a flavor of what people feel is like sell. And i think the thing that was very noticeable. Some years it's very risk-taking some years. It is full auto ferry largest relations. That might have a lot of digital elements incorporated. You could have big videos long videos difficult videos and people are really showing them to show their program. This time. i thought it actually looks really good because it is surprisingly large amount of minimal. Older artists establish masters. Who look very good in this kind of space. So there was a huge. Dan flavin pink. Dan flavin from nine hundred. Seventy four in the middle. The john chamberlain. It's not one of the crushed cars. It's like this huge of tinfoil structure and know it looks absolutely great in there. There's a pink sort of set of pink minimal canvases by tourists baletic. But i just kept thinking. Gosh there's a lot of classic americans hair. There's a lot of mid-century italians here. There's a really fantastic installation of works. By sherrie levine reflect graphs other artists. And this one is cooled off to wrestle lee. Now it's actually quite a more recent work. But when i think of sherrie levine. I think to the seventies early eighties. It's actually so that runs throughout unlimited. A few people have been a little bit more experimental say lawrence. Abby hamdam sound installation installed but by and large. I'm not saying it looks like deer that would be aggrandizing auto limited but it definitely has an odor dare if you notice. I mean it's really curious because of course the fact that this is happening is a landmark moment because the major fairs we had we had the armory. Just have the armory in new york for instance. But you know so. Many major fair postponements. It's been the sort of crisis area of the market really. Does it feel to you like there's a sort of general sense in which this is getting back to normal. What does it feel more like. They still this'll tyrannous. They're still the sense that we're not sure what's coming next. People like this is the first step towards normality. I would say this is the first step towards normality. Actually i think what i would start by was people with very very happy to be back in the fair. The was a bit of a sense of the number of people said it back to school reunion because so many of us there. It was much easier to see people. You know your friends you know. It was also easier to talk to people. You didn't so. I found that i could go up and talk to galleries that i didn't know tool and people were very friendly. Very happy to speak..

"Space dot com slash. Money today thematically. It all hangs together really well because tech is the big tobacco of our time. Am i right. No i don't know but kind of i am. I mean. that's the attempted punchline. Which doesn't completely land. But at the very end it turns out that he's given up on lobbying on behalf of big tobacco and now he's lobbying on behalf of technology or media or something. You know the the cell phone company. Yeah so maybe we should dig into the other aspects of the movie so join you did like i mean. This is interesting because you say that. The obvious glaring solar system notwithstanding the sort of satirical spying of the movie. You like i did. I thought that the satirical spine did a good job of cleverly telling you what is a lobbyist. What do they do. And i actually thought it was very well written. Also for the most part. I thought the lines were were pretty clever. So yeah i. The rest of the movie actually did work for me. Tell me what you raw blow in a komo. No that was awesome. I'm seeing a thumb up for that one. I mean he was really good in. This role blows so good in plays a hollywood producer. Aaron eckhart idea for like reviving tobacco's to get it back in the movies. And so he goes out to la and meets rob lowe whose hilarious and who's assistant is the kid from the oc who you know. I can't remember his name but he's hilarious and he just yes away at car his son as he's taken them to see rob lowe and he's like we love the decorations here and he looks around. He's like oh. Yeah jeff which is rob. Lowe's character jeff. Loves as shit and it's just like what and then you see him in the komo now and he's calling them really late he's like you know what time it is in japan. It's leg sixteen hours from now. It's the future going you from the future. Like he's just so proto rob lowe of parks and rec. I thought they point to the john chamberlain sculptures like. Oh yeah that was a present from matthew mcconaughey right right who. They totally did in the movie. That was very funny to. Oh yeah before. He met jeff. You is just an actor. But now he's a name or now he's thinking person star brand. Somebody says the face now. He's in asia. Yes that's a good. It was such a good matthews a tremendously talented individual in an extremely decent human being however before komo news a face those name. But i love the rob lowe character because he was even sleazy earlier than the main character than nick so the character. Nick ends up saying the end of his meeting with with rob lowe. He's like i could learn something from that guy. 'cause he has zero moral compass remember. He says that we love. You would love to have you chests just a heads up so you know you have no problem. That you're co-finance is the salton of zoo. Tom nick says oh. You mean the guy who's like being accused of murdering all his own people and Yeah.

"Like was in neon was god and man at Yale by bill Buckley and hi I thoroughly enjoyed the book and I became a lifelong fan of bill Buckley and you know better than I hello what an intelligent witty person he was in a great human being and I hi who is hi I'm a life long subscriber to his magazine and that's what my question is about he had a columnist John chamberlain and Joseph circle ski and if those early days and if I'm not mistaken they were both former I mean is scored beveled with it and it seems in reading the early issues of all are you at that time William Buckley when out of his way to have these great anti communist writers who in many cases St may work work Hedman communists or dabble in it or came from communist countries so will that always interested me hello and I'm I'm still I'm still subscriber I have the subscriber of National Review lifelong and your answer that's Joseph what do you do in west haven Connecticut I'm sorry Sir incident I'm retired teacher incidently my first year teaching I taught John chamberlain step son and this is kind of a comical little story I took both of English freshman English and American history and when we when we got to the age of industrialism I use the phrase robber barons and soon after that John chamberlain step son brought me in a book about the great industrialists of America the John Carnegie's in Vanderbilt's Rockefellers and he may have written a book I'm not sure but I hi yeah I got I got his point as I said I'd use the word rapper Berenson describing as men and that he may have heard of from the steps on all right tells us in west haven Connecticut before we let you answer he said he was a a lifelong subscriber to National Review right the editor of National Review now rich Lowry has a new book coming out in August August thirteenth I believe it comes out and it's called nationalism so due to put that on your radar screen sure well we say to a great book by the third full some called the myth of the robber barons really quite excellent yeah National Review is very important to me too and in fact I was it was nineteen eighty nine I think why and I'll never all never forget this I was the way I started writing my writing career happen I I wrote a letter to the editor of the student newspaper the pet news on homelessness and I I these people on campus that I was talking to without any gays in a kind of a discussion were blaming the homeless problem on Ronald Reagan and and and I and I looked at this and I try to understand how this was Ronald Reagan's fault I went night investigated it and did I did a science major would do I look at the pros and cons it wasn't a conservative or liberal I even called the local homeless shelter and I said to the lady I I I said I took notes in a civil houses the fault of Ronald Reagan she said I don't know what they're teaching you this university but this is a Ronald Reagan's fault these people are mentally ill that's what you told me and the liberals that I knew made fun of the homeless people that I walked by and I would try to talk to the homeless people so I wrote this letter to the editor the end up publishing it as a column and then I got attacked I got called a racist all these different names OR and then I responded by writing a column on the contras spend another week or two taking away from my genetics course focusing on the contras in contra aid I wrote a piece in support of arming the contras and for that I got called a **** it and and my dad picked me up on a Friday afternoon and and he said to me he's I can still picture to this day is driving over here on the site is that still a newspaper column you're doing for the student newspaper it's a pretty good dad but I'm getting called all kinds of names I got called I got called a **** this week is that I'm not see I said see you said what what are you writing about writing about it I said I I wrote about the contras like a called a **** and fascist and before that they had a guy called a recess just writing something about homelessness he said why and I said I don't know did I believe there's these people on campus they're called liberals and they call you the most vicious names when you disagree with it's unbelievable they call you every name in the book so this have the exact opposite affected convinced me to keep writing but I asked my dad this is the National Review part of it I said that what is a conservative it's a liberal I'm just writing this stuff is a science major and I said I I can tell liberal probably read like The New York Times this kind of thing was a conservative and my dad said hi Buckley's magazine I said Buckley's magazine what does that mean they said National Review said okay National Review where do I get one of them so when we get home and my hometown was Butler Pennsylvania you go over the bookstore get a copy so I went and I got it off the shelf I asked the lady were National Review I read it cover to cover and I don't disagree with anything I write I thought this is really amazing stop really so I went into this totally a clean slate and I started subscribing I subscribe to National Review in the American spectator yeah the new Republic I love the new Republic especially those years under Morton Kondracke he interests all of then Fred Barnes that whole group those are really the three that I kept the Atlantic to I kept that subscription then I got to graduate school I'm so broke I think I kept only the American spectator at that point because help to keep my sanity because it was so entertaining and amusing but but yeah National Review very very significant and the earlier caller who accuse me of being a random supporter of Ayn Rand you water Hey caller look up Whittaker chambers review of online rand National Review and look at how chambers salvaged I and my heart and Buckley was no friend of mine rand either so unit you need to learn a little bit more about conservatism libertarian those on all these different views you gotta you gotta read more in this stuff you've also written for the American thinker magazine yeah I'm not I'm going right now I'm quite a while it's been quite awhile well this is for may thirteenth twenty sixteen the constant claims of trump being another Reagan must be addressed and must be stopped if merely in service of truth but also in service of what Ronald Reagan really represented and what we need to remember the indisputable reality is that there is no meaningful legitimate sort of similarities between Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan I think that was the last time I wrote for American thinker at the the readers savage me for that I was shocked I was really shocked I remember one of the a woman in the reader comments section wrote something like who is this guy came or was a communist and I thought well no I've probably written for American thinker about a hundred times up to that point and I was just trying to plead with people there it's almost like a psychological thing where supporters of trump wanted to affirm themselves by saying well they did this to Reagan to and look how Reagan turned out to be right and wow Reagan was attacked and called an idiot just like trom so they have like two or three things and say well this is just like Reagan what other than the fact that they were both attack for their intelligence and and underestimated in that kind of thing you can't have two people who are more different than Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump I mean what come up with a bunch of other similarities to our growing the economy and other stuff and and even the fact that Donald Trump in many ways has often as a president and a conservative way including religious liberty court picks his cortex probably will turn out being better than Reagan's Supreme Court picks that's all true but in so many ways especially personality you can find people that are that are more different I I Reagan was everyone who met Reagan liked him at liberals like to break in as a person Reagan was the kindest most decent person that is so many people tell me they said he was the nicest person that I ever met Reagan in his diaries it's the word down he will Reagan when even swear all right I have yeah he's the complete opposite of trump on that so I was pleading with people there look of trump's your guy that's cool make your point go for it but don't try to make him like Reagan because he a Reagan are completely different cleft San Angelo Texas you are on book TV yes hello thank you so much professor king gord so refreshing if you get a conservative such as yourself on national TV for a change I'm a big conservative as you can probably guess my background for that probably is that I played pro tennis when the first World point titles won the Davis Cup with Arthur Ashe was at the White House I agree Richard Nixon's rain in sixty nine but that is bigger out who you are going to ask my producer look I left well I won't even give you my last name necessarily I'm not calling to do brag on myself but you ask the other person what he did and I'm a published author on Amazon I'm a mental health advocate but you know are you still curious you must have got up professor you must have debated at lit liberal professors that make up the majority that can say they don't but they do and to me it would be a chip shot to beat them because of what you've said as to why conservatism has been a proven winner through Melanie out so I know you'll be honest when you answer what has been your experience and what is your what do you think your personal record is would you have debated the liberal professors on the subjects in issues you're talking about that and one last thing we have been absolutely massacred over the last thirty or forty years as conservatives with the press and we'll see activist we talk you down call you names accuse you of being you know I just want to state my opinion without being assassinated character wise and my opinion is this Donald Trump one because of Twitter we've been waiting for somebody to fight back and answer these people and to me they're a bunch of idiots and I think you will again and I think it's so refreshing but I think it's because of Twitter thank you guys so much cliff is this cliff Richie yes thank you Clifford you very quickly god bless the internet right former professional tennis player American junior national champion nineteen sixty two and sixty three won the boys singles title at the French Open in sixty four etcetera etcetera wow well it's very good very well cliff the I I usually don't debate liberal professors they don't they don't ask me the debate I don't get invited to those things it's very interesting I'd be giving a talk for young America's foundation for I'll be twenty years now and and it's it's called why communism is bad that I get I get invitations from college Republican groups yeah off chapters a different campuses with these kids who are desperate saying my professor quite literally has a boss of Karl Marx in his office right I I hear nothing negative about communism I hear out it's good it's about sharing it's badly mis understood the problem with communism is hasn't been tried right and so forth could you please come to campus and give a talk on why communism is bad and I go there and I'll bring a stack of books with me because I'm I'm gonna go straight from the tax communist manifesto Lannan on the state and revolution the Harvard University press book on the black the black book of communism and the students in that room are riveted they they are locked in because this is stuff that they haven't heard before and very rarely is a professor in the room they they hardly ever com the last time I gave the talk there was one professor in the room and he was it turned out he was a Polish emigre he was in the engineering department and he told me that he was the only Republican the new out of the faculty of about a hundred thirty at at the college I had one case where there is a professor in the room a female professor and as I was going through the body bag count the butcher's bill the number of people killed under Soviet communism over twenty million according to the Harvard University press book sex sells and it's in an Alexander Yakovlev in his Yale University Press book a century of crimes in Soviet Russia Yaakov lab who was garbage as chief reformer and given the job of trying to help the skulls and find out just how many people were killed and the Soviet killing fields rock of love says in that book quote Stalin alone annihilated sixty to seventy million people now ma'ale according to the harbor the black book of communism was at least sixty to sixty five million and the latest research on that is probably over seventy million so if if the number is a hundred hundred forty million under communist governments that's more than twice the combined death tolls of World War one World War two so I just lay all of this out very factually and in one case this female professor left at me and you just shaking her head disgusted looking at me like the ghost of Joe McCarthy had flown inside my body and possessed me.

"Churchill and his war cabinet at this moment, which is the ninth of men the German. The the eighth of may the Germans have not yet attacked the low countries are France, they're going to, but nobody knows that in in parliament as they're debating chamberlain's government war cabinet and Churchill's defended him, Lloyd, Georgia's blasted him. They go to a division and the final vote is two hundred eighty one. Yes, and two hundred no that looks like chamberlain's government, stands the important detail here is that Chamberlain went into this division. For and against with a two hundred and thirteen majority of all the conservatives have voted for him, many people abstain many people stayed away and there were calls of resigned Chamberlain immediately. After the the results of the division were announced that night and into the next day Chamberlain has to deal with the fact that he's been badly rocked as prime minister. And he's got to change his cabinet John Chamberlain at this point believe that he can survive. Yes. He does at first he was very badly. Shaken, but he did still have an unassailable majority. What he knew he had to do was to somehow persuade members from the labor party and members of the liberal party to join him in a coalition government. He thought he could do that. He also thought he could bring into his government some of those troublesome young men who that is to say the critics. Of his appeasement policies during the pre war era. And that if he did that he could essentially buy off the conservative party and bring in the other parties and yes survive to fight another day. He did not intend to relinquish the prime ministership that day he did not intend to then yet. He calls in Halifax and Chamberlain that afternoon to have a very Churchill Tampa, very important conversation about who can take this job. If not me, let's now turn we know Churchill, very well Halifax. His name is Edward Frederick Linley. He's a man who's gone FOX hunting with Gehring. He's a lordly and admired figure what is the advantage to going to Halifax and what is the disadvantage? Chamberlain preferred Halifax she had worked closely with Halifax for years. He had made Halifax his foreign minister. And he believed that Halifax would continue his policies. He was much more comfortable with him. Then with Winston Churchill who. I should explain was considered to be sort of a wild man and a loose cannon a figure with enormous capacity, but also unbridled and unmanageable. And so he wanted to stay if he had to step down if the labor party would not work with him which by the afternoon of that day. He was beginning to think would be the case. Then he wanted to steer the prime ministership to pair of safe hands or safer hands than Churchill's and those were Halifax's Halifax was reluctant. However, they do find another compromise, which is to welcome athle- leader of labor and amend name Greenwood senior figure in labor into the government. So they send for them that afternoon and Chamberlain asked. Sadly to join the cabinet. Why why won't Atlee agree? The labor party hated Neville Chamberlain Chamberlain. Apparently was an extremely haughty figure a man who didn't suffer fools lightly. And who basically thought that anybody who disagreed with him was a fool and labor disagreed with him all the time labor had opposed his his austerity policies, you might say during the period of the economic depression in the thirties, and they remembered him they I have seen the quotations. They say things like he used to treat us like dirt. They didn't want to be in a government with him. They didn't trust him. But I think even more important than that is that they really didn't trust him to aggressively pursue the war against the Germans. He they didn't think that he was a war leader our party won't have you as the quote from athle-, it's give and so. So the choice now is Halifax or Churchill that evening. Churchill dines with Sinclair and Eden the young the young man the eaten a group and conservatives and tells them I shall be PM soon. He tells his son Randolph he'll be PM that soon as well.

There's a blur of meetings all morning for Churchill and Chamberlain still sees with tulips at the peak outside it's beautiful spring day that still Atley refuses. They ask him again. He refuses and Chamberlain has no choice. But to go to the king and resign the king wants Chamberlain to stay is that why he says it's grossly unfair when Chamberlain arrives. Yes. The king sympathized with chamberlain's views and had been an appeaser himself. But you see the situation had changed on that last day because that was the day that the Germans launched the attack again. France Chamberlain at I thought that the emergency the crisis meant that he could hang on to power. And in fact, Churchill himself thought that it what mattered at the moment was to defeat the Germans, but still the labor party would not join chamberlain's government, and then Chamberlain went to the king and handed in what are called the seals of office, and the king assumed that it would be Halifax who would replace him and Chamberlain had to tell them. No, it will be Churchill. Yes. Winstons the man to send for and that decision is the tents Churchill is now prime minister, he spends the weekend choosing his cabinet that is the subject of our conversation Churchill's wartime cabinet, but the transition here is everything.

They're bombing Belgium. They're rumors even that they've bombed Canterbury which is not true. But as the panic of the weekend Churchill is assembling a cabinet. But the surprising thing I learned from you John is that nobody expected this to last long. They they expected Churchill to come and go so on Monday when he makes his speech Commons. We just a note here when he makes his speech to Commons. Do they all doubt him to they shout at him? Do they listened in silence? They don't shout at him. But they raise a greater cheer. Well, let me explain in the house of Commons as as you pointed out earlier, the vast majority of men sitting on those benches are conservatives by and the vast majority of conservative still preferred amber Lynn to Churchill I people don't probably realize today that in nineteen thirty nine or nineteen forty Churchill was considered very much a sort of a man on the fringe.
