"As far as public health experts know, but it's something they're watching for other countries are even more restrictive, says Dr Lin Chen, president of the International Society of Travel Medicine. In Hong Kong, for instance, all arriving passengers are bussed to a convention center, and then they get tested there, then that wait a few hours until the results are no. If they're positive that go into isolation. If they're negative, they're allowed to go do their quarantine. By contrast, the CDC is only suggesting that people self quarantine for seven days and get retested a few days after arrival. The U. S policy won't catch every infection but set John from the CDC says it could make a difference and managing the caseload. Right now we're in a critical race between infection and vaccination. And the bridge to succeeding in the time it takes to get her immunity and a successful vaccination going is to double down on all of our tools in our tool kit to suppress viral transmission, he says.

But then again, I look at my fellow Jews. Joe Biden has a number of anti Semites, his staff and his his circle. Once done duel the peace has broken out in the Middle East. And I read that 70 75% of going but not Orthodox Jews, of course, but the others. They know what the hell they're doing. It's my wife likes to say. The problem with the left is their religion, and their identity is with their party, the Democrat Party. I'm afraid this is true with the vast majority of minorities, the vast majority of Jews Vast majority of too many groups. Too many groups. Really? It's shocking to me. People knew the real Joe Biden and they'll never know the real Joe Biden through the media. That's that's for sure. I wonder if would even change some of their minds. I'm starting to doubt it.

You had a story to share with US tonight about cannabis arrests. This is from Forbes Dot Com. And it says the headline more people were arrested for cannabis last year then for all violent crime put together. According to FBI data. We've been reading this for years the same stories, but you would think but now there's so many states with legalization and decriminalization right and right everybody's making it a low priority supposedly now, not everybody not everybody some states are actually breaking it in. So if you're as I know Nebraska for instances, I guess at Butts right up against Colorado I get a little fuzzy on the square states out there and. They're looking for people just driving across the border pulling him over, and you know you get the weeds Then from the article currently thirty-three states allow for at least some type of medical cannabis use and eleven allow for adult recreational use. The stigma around the drug has also lessened with two thirds of Americans. Now, supporting national legalization of cannabis was even deemed essential in many states during the covid nineteen pandemic. This is true in Seattle Washington. The recreational stores stayed open, they were essential. Go down the store and get your your marijuana. Still despite public support and medical use of the drug cannabis remains federally illegal and arresting people who use still seems to be a big priority for crime enforcement. According to the recently released uniform crime report from the FBI more people were arrested for cannabis in two thousand nineteen. Then for all violent crimes put together, Ladies and gentlemen listeners. This is how. Yet, another illustration of how ridiculous the organization called government is that they're arresting more people for having a plant than they are for all other crimes put together. It's amazing and it's it's not even fair to call marijuana drug because it's not processed. Really I mean. Dried you're talking about the plant I mean there is definitely processing involved if you're talking about an extraction like Hash oil or and wakes. But if you go to the grocery store and you buy some dried sage, they don't call it a drug. No, that's true. Okay. So to say, Hey, kids don't do drugs to include marijuana on. That is less accurate to my mind that including beer which is processed. Very much so and a drug. Oh Yeah. One of the hardest drugs alcohol is hands down with you know tied with with heroin for being the hardest drug. The data from the FBI's report revealed that police arrested a five, hundred, forty, five, thousand, six, hundred, and two people for cannabis related crimes in two, thousand, nine, hundred, nine that restaurant is nine percent higher than the four, hundred, ninety, five, thousand, eight, hundred, seventy one people arrested for violent crimes in the same year. Did. He give you those numbers without reading the whole number just get round up around down to the closest five, hundred and fifty, thousand, five, hundred, fifty, thousand, versus four, hundred, and ninety, five, thousand. Five hundred fifty thousand was a number of cannabis arrests. Yes. Yeah. Five hundred thousand cannabis arrests versus four hundred ninety thousand violent crime arrests fifty thousand more arrests for marijuana than ten percent more. Yeah. Yes. Sorry. Thank you. It would be interesting to see the breakdown by state. Because I suspect that in states like New Hampshire, where there has been decriminalization of cannabis but I keep saying I'm GonNa, put it in a freedom of information request on this, but I haven't done it yet. But to actually find out. There should be a number I was talking with a cop the other day. And normally not supposed to do but there was a cop that had come up to the Joe Jordan Johnson campaign events a couple of weeks ago or he was there the whole time while I I when I arrived he was standing there watching and the rumor was that he was there to to try to shut down the event if more than one hundred people showed up and there was you know non mask-wearing going on there actually went up in spoke to him and he said, no, that's not the case at all I'm actually here I was hired by the campaign I'm here as you know private security. Basically. So there's this like this nasty rumor.

I was sent the story here at Some of our listeners prematurely dot com and I guarantee you that the mainstream press and B. L. INC will not be mentioning it. A black teen was shot and killed Minneapolis. His name was Andre Coley. He worked for Lacy Johnson's campaign. The Republican running to unseat the ingrate. Align Omar. For a second time. Just for a second, imagine if a black staffer working, for Eline, Omar or any Democrat was gunned down in the street. The Johnson Campaign said this quote. It is shocking unnecessary acts of violence like this. That prove why change is more needed than ever before in our community the Johnson. Campaign said in a statement. Now keep in mind this comes after the Minneapolis City Council. Voted to defend. The local police. and. Then today it was reported from the Minneapolis City Council quote residents are asking where the police said council member Jamal Osman. Noting that constituents calls to Minneapolis Police Department have gone. unanswered. Quote that is the only public safety option they have at the moment Minneapolis Police Department they rely. On, the MP and they are saying they are nowhere to be seen. It's funny how that works you define the police you demonize them. The two months later. Some people are surprised. They say we'll wear the police. When you vote Democrat. This is what you get. And crimes not gone down without the police. Andre Coley was the city's fifty nine homicide victim of the year and the ninth who is under the age of eighteen. Here's an honest question. Did his life not matter to be l. m.. Inc.. Crime is not just up is going way up in Minneapolis of course it is. We knew this was the case I said this back on a local radio program back in May as soon as I saw George Floyd. Murdered. I said countless and dozens of black people are going to die because the police are going to retreat and the Ferguson effect is going to happen Ferguson Missouri police retreat. They feel they're not welcome. Black people get slaughtered in the streets. Brandt Williams from NPR said this. While the city council members floated the idea of riddling the cities of its police department, the city has been plagued by months of higher than usual crime, violent crimes such as salts, robberies, and homicides, as well as property crimes like burglaries and auto thefts are up compared to two thousand nineteen according to the PD crime data reviewed by m P. R. More people have been killed in the city and the first nine months of this year all of last year property crimes like burglaries and auto thefts are also up incidents of arson have increased fifty five percent versus where they were last year. When you allow criminals to run free. The marginalized and the oppress in our society get hurt the most. It's not just bad for all people. It's especially bad for the marginalized. People of color who the left and B. M. says they represent. Get disproportionately affected when white liberal radical. So chaos in our society. So, far from being oppressors, the police are actually liberators. They are agents of justice. Yes. They are peace officers. Now off course police officers do foolish things and do things they shouldn't do. But. When you have no police, you have no peace. Now you see the tragedy of what happens when white liberals implement their central planning schemes and Black America the fifty nine, th homicide. This guy was just volunteering for a Republican to challenge Eland Omar and he was gunned down in the street and the mainstream press has not mentioned at all whatsoever doesn't matter to be L. Ellen. It is not a top tier. issue. If a volunteer for the Bernie Sanders campaign or for any other race was murdered in the street. Mind you if that person was murdered by police officer. Oh my goodness it would be the entire country was burnt down however Andre Coli being a black republican his life. Does not matter to be L. N.. It's an inconvenience, it doesn't fit the narrative. So now that you've seen Minneapolis defunding their police and demonize their police you're now seeing. Anyone with money leave downtown. Minneapolis. And it has turned into a mid western equivalent of Gotham city. where the strong rise to the top, whoever has the bigger gun or the bigger baseball bat win the argument and the police are nowhere to be found. Blm Inc stems from critical race theory. Beal ink is made possible when you don't teach our children history BLM and its surrogates on the Minneapolis City, council are given power when a nation does not have a shared historical or cultural identity. This is what the President confronted head-on heroically with the seventeen seventy, six commission. People ask me all the time. Charlie, what can I do take the education of your children as the most important thing in your life, teach them our values make them read biographies of the greats of our country. Dive deep into the history of America. The good. The bad. The ugly the complex and the heroic, but be unafraid to talk about the arc of a nation. That was founded in rebellion rooted and first principles bled and died over almost torn apart. And now to this day, the greatest country ever to exist in the history of the world when you don't communicate that radical insurgent movements like be l. m.. We'll take political power and try to tear our country apart from within. The future. Actually depends on us. She'll be very optimistic actually if we do our job, we win the future. If we educate if we communicate these values, we can win tomorrow. Mr President thank you. For taking decisive and bold action to get our kids to love. America.

"Continues on phone lines are open 6519895855 digging into some of the primary results from from the state of Minnesota yesterday with our good friend Max Rhymer. Frequent a roundtable er, also local election analyst expert and all around good guy and taker of amazing Selfies. And I just say that as somebody who also takes Selfies You take great, selfish man. I appreciate the energy. I do like Misa Max. Do you know I have? Ah, I have perfected the art of being a conceited millennial. So practice. All right. So you were getting into some of your takeaways from from yesterday and so? So let's get pick up. Where you where you left off a moment ago, and he said Representative Ilhan Omar one before you, By the way just before you get into some of the some of the things you notice, let's go there for just a second, Did you You have any. Was there any expectation in your mind that perhaps and Tom melt mutes would squeak out a win based off of what had happened over the last few weeks? A re still where you still fairly certain that representative Ilhan Omar was going to walk away with a win last night. I I was always somewhat certain that Ilhan Omar would win reelection. I actually thought that she would over performed even the 60% or the 59%. That she got last night blood fact that 40% of the district and it was a significant number of people, by the way, who showed up with that primary, a significant Ah, significant number of people. The fact that 40% of the district did not vote for her said quite a bit about the pulse of the five right now. I think a lot of people Are dissatisfied Who, Ah lot of people who we might not certainly believe that she has not done a good job representing them, and it does leave an opening. Not that not that it's going to be a walk away win for Republicans CD five, but it absolutely leave the window open to carve out a large chunk of that district, which has been in chaos. The last four months. Well, I think one of the aspects that that is significant and it's going to be very interesting. And this is a big challenge for the Lacy Johnson campaign going forward is going out there and talking to people that supported Anton melted mucus because a lot of the reasons why people are dissatisfied with Ilhan Omar. It's not just partisan. It has to do with her leaving the district It has to do with her not delivering for the district. It has to do with her spending her time and energy and and her platform to you advocate for issues that have nothing to do with seedy five. You know, foreign policy issues and things like that. So there's a lot of frustration. And then you couple that with all of the scandals, you know the marrying her brother, the immigration fraud, the tax fraud, the marrying her consultant and funneling millions Of dollars to that T his firm and so on, and so on. There's a lot of there's a lot of opportunity there for Lacey Johnson to win those people over. I think a lot of the sentiment and a lot of the emotional reasons why people might have supported Anton Melton Mews would transfer very easily and very nicely over to Lacey Johnson. But that is on him. And that is the challenge that that campaign has is getting out there. And talking to those disaffected Ilana disaffected dia fellers who do not necessarily want Ilhan Omar to represent them. That's right. Drew. I think they're spot on. I'd trust a campaign t really pivot. Not not Only I'm messaging but on outreach tactics, too, Because the other thing that you have to keep in mind about Ilana Omar. And I think we're Anton. Once we debrief on this thing where you're going to see a condom, his boat coming from Are in the ST Louis Park communities and then the South Minneapolis community and the Jewish community in both of those areas. Keep in mind. Ilhan. Omar does not want Israel to exist on this planet, and I think that also draw a lot of concerns. Is that become that began Mohr and more blatant as he had gap after Gap effort after gas, you know, show me the Benjamins, baby and things like that. Well, and it it goes without saying, But I'm going to say it anyways. You know what Lacey Johnson has to do is he has to reach enough people right? And it has to. He has to have a strong a ground game, and I bring that up because It says there's a slim chance but there is a chance, but he needs support. And he needs dollars in order to get his message out to the people because you're looking at a community that does Have strong beliefs. And I believe that individuals that have strong beliefs even if they're not believes that I carry. I respect individuals that have a belief in something and those individuals and to believe, regardless of what it is, they do believe There is a sense of being rational and and being willing to look at an individual and what they conduce beyond somebody who's just out there Voting down a party line and I would like to believe and I could be completely mistaken. But I'd like to believe That with a really intense and strong ground game that Lacey Johnson if you reached if he reached enough people with his message of what he could do for 75 he could alleviate any fears that they have and perhaps get individuals who would never think Voting against their party to go and do just that. Well and then strategically when you think about it, and this is something for every listener out there to consider, as they're giving the candidate they are supporting candidates. Here we carved out Let's call it 38 to 40% of CD five and were able to get about land grab this year. Donald Trump is going to win statewide and Jason Lewis is goingto win. Stay wide as well. Because DD five they run up the score so high on the DFL side that before an election is even called SETI five, getting flipped 80 20 every time the DFL Statewide become incredibly difficult. But if we got about 40 42 45% of lazy snuck out a victory in that district this year. We would win a wide. There was no question about it. Yeah, And that is that. That's that analysis is absolutely spot on on. All you've got to do is go look at the last couple of election cycles, last few election cycles and look at the time that statewide races got called for the D F l Look how quickly the walls Johnson race got called in 2016. Look how quickly the Senate races The PLO Bashar races have gotten called. Why were they able to call them at 801? You know, a minute? Or two after the polls closed its because they watch what happens in the Metro specifically in seedy five. They just look at turnout numbers..

You were talking about immigration during the break. Yeah, well, let me let's give Joe's website. I. Don't think we've done that yet. It's J. O. J., twenty twenty DOT com. Isn't that right Joe? Exactly thank you and folks can go there and I imagine. Get some look deeply at the site, but I mentioned. You've got some issues positions in such up there, and what also people find their. Place to donate, we could use your donations to try to spread the word, and unlike the Gary Johnson campaign. We want to spend funds early so that we can get the ball rolling so that we can get other people. Into, the mole into the movement, and so that they can learn about us, and hopefully we can grow exponentially not. Do you accept donations via crypto currencies? You know I've been asked that before. I need to I. Don't know if the FCC allows I. Mean. Put it this way. If there's any way for a campaign to do it I'm sure we would I covering campaigns. In, Texas, they would take donations in deer seaman because they were worth got really because they were worth like ten thousand dollars a piece. You should talk to Darryl W Perry about it Joe I know. He endorsed you at the convention I imagine you're going to be seeing him tomorrow. When you file for office, he when he ran for president, for years ago announced that he was going to be taking crypto currencies and violating FCC campaign law by not reporting it or something like that. They don't want to go to jail. But I'm saying that because I bet he's done the research, so he could probably answer the questions for you about like how you could do it if it's possible I, think it is possible. You just probably have to like collect people's name in you know and their job and such, so let's get to the Libertarian Litmus test issue here that this is the Biggie I think immigration are you for immigration, freedom or you for immigration, bureaucracy and rules and mandates. I wonder where you stand on this. Absolutely. I one open the borders. In fact, three of my grandparents are immigrants right and they came over before we close our borders. People don't realize that we basically had open borders until the nineteen twenties and we didn't have any problem. There wasn't as I understand it. There wasn't even a passport until World War Two. Yes something like that and we have no problem at all. Hardworking people wanted to come to the country and our and forget about the fact that we're helping these people who come to our country, our country becomes more economically vigorous. Our country benefits from emigrants. I totally agree so your four free and open borders correct. Absolutely awesome! Here's another one so during previous campaigns that we're not your campaign the candidates hadn't been very good at about the basics of liberty like the non aggression principle, what is the non aggression principle, and will you be discussing that concept during your campaign and say media, interviews and such? Well I might discuss it with a libertarian. But my goal is to reach non Libertarians or rather to reach American voters, who either never heard of the party or just don't realize they're libertarians yet. I think that we've got all the people in the party. Who Love Liberty for Liberty Sake, and of course I'm one of them. I join the movement in Nineteen, seventy nine, but a lot of the other people out there they need to be explained how liberty is the best answer how it can work practically no, no, I totally agree. I guess my question was. You won't have a problem broaching the subject, though right like you know what the non aggression principle is. Can you just define it for for our audience? While there are many different ways, but I would say that my right to punch. My fist ends within a few inches of your face would be one example. But basically you have the right. To live your life really as long as you don't. You're not aggressing upon somebody else's rights. So essentially that it is immoral to commit aggression. Against others. It's wrong to hitch, yes. Yes? Unless you're. flips. Yeah, yeah, what does t shirts say something like? Don't steal things and don't hit people. I mean the thing is it's preschool level stuff, but unfortunately that's where we're at. With society is we're still trying to help. People remember the things that they learned when they were three years old that you don't be any in fact, if I if I can interrupt, you, said Preschool. Basically we what we have is the federal government is like the third grade bully whose bullying up on us in the preschool and tell you know they're stealing our lunch money, and then they're bribing us with our own lunch money and the spending it want to. Here's another question I think Aria. Somebody suggested this in the chat. I already had in my notes as well. But how do you feel about Secession Joe? That's a that's probably a question. You didn't get asked in Nineteen ninety-six. No secession state what state so let's say New Hampshire. Wanted to say good bye, call it a day just like we did back when the king was in charge new, Hampshire I believe was the first, if not one of the first to declare their independence from from the king, and so if a New Hampshire were to want to declare its independence in. Your administration if if you were elected would you stand in the way of that, or would you give it your support? Yeah well. I I'd like to point out that I live in South Carolina another state. That's. A session. At a later point. But under my administration I. Don't think any state would want to leave, but the thing is, is they? I wouldn't be taking their money and bribing them to do things that I want to do so they get it back I. Mean you look at why states want to leave you know. One of my favorite examples is Elizabeth stole. She basically took money in through. You know through the federal government. She was a transportation secretary in the nineties, and she told the state's Yoshi dangled their money back and said here. You Go if you want your money back if you want. Want your highway funds. You're going to have to raise the drinking age to twenty one and when I was in college, most many states at least where I went to school the drinking age was eighteen and of course I. think if you're old enough to fight and award lose your life, you're. You're old enough to drink a beer, but we would have states who could make that choice, but basically the federal government used extortion so that they all move to twenty one okay Joe I don't want to be the combative one hair, but you didn't ask the question what? Did want to secede presidency. I would have to think about that a little more again. I can't imagine they would want to, but we are the.

You'd moderating moderating watering down. We have a chance with Josh and with Hornberger to completely flip the script in one shot now now in right now like that is coming at a crossroads where we are the big recruiters in the party at which means that we are significant fundraising force for the Party and and we're the biggest caucus where the most energetic caucus were organizing all of this stuff. So you know I I. I know there's a lot of people who think that the Libertarian Party is irredeemable but you take me up on a challenge to use this as a trial run because there's always fifteen thousand members and if we can't even get our own shit under control then and you can kiss any dreams of fighting the state of by your I mean like we we if we can't even coalesce around our own movement and our own party and and to push forward A worthy candidate and Hornberger in I really I really suggest people go and watch.

You know all the right people in the party hate us and and you know you can be a part of that fun too and it is fun. That's the thing it's it's fun and that's what we've been missing Gary Johnson campaign totally miserable you know like like fighting fighting with Bart Bernie defectors actors fighting trump defecting culture warriors. You Know Johnson sticking his tongue out while we're trying to defend like it was just horrible. It was just. It was horrible level. That was not always the case. There was a time in in a moment where it was absolutely fun. You know what I mean in an an inspiring and you didn't have to try to be motivated and you didn't have to try to be engaged for you know absolutely and and the thing that's really exciting about this to me is that it's like a as you say if you go. Johnson Johnson Bar. That takes you back. The last three presidential cycles of of the Libertarian Party. And I would say that that you know look in. Let's say in the year was at two thousand when Harry Brown Rans of people don't know Harry Brown was a great truly. Principled Inspiring Libertarian candidate. But it was the year two thousand The Internet was in its infancy compared to today. this is before the the so you know before nine eleven before the wars before the Patriot Act before the NSA. You know crazy spying out of control before the two thousand eight crash and you know it just. It didn't get a ton of votes. Were more members of the Libertarian Party back then but it didn't get a ton of votes and I could see from an l. p. point of view where they'd go like maybe if we run these these more establishment moderate candidates maybe will attract more attention. But this is after the Ron Paul Revolution. This is a different time. And and since two thousand twelve with Ron Paul. Running we haven't had a true principled. Hard Core Libertarian. Run in national politics anywhere air. It hasn't happened and Horn burgers the first guy since then. It's the first guy to test the waters and be like. What can we do in this Internet age in the post after the Ron Paul? Kind of mainstream libertarianism. How much damage can we do? How big a platform can we get how much you know? How many people can we? Can we wake up. And that's to me of very exciting prospect. The running Johnson Weld wasn't just a disaster. Because of of you know who they are it was also just the timing. It was the fact that it's like people were dying for rand. Paul be another Ron Paul. And he wasn't and then people were all all on this anti-establishment then it was the perfect time to run. A real hard core libertarian. And they threw that opportunity away but it looks like twenty twenty. We're going to have that the opportunity back with Jacob Porn Burger and we as the meese caucus of already done the hard work. We've already created the infrastructure. We've already laid the groundwork we've already taken taking all the slings in arrows and bullshit from from the haters in the party. You know what I mean so you get to come in the fun part. You know what I mean and and please do. Do you know like an and it's going to be a party that I mean. If it's anything like the Ron Paul days it's it. It will be a party so I mean the time is right right now out to get involved in and I can't stress enough. That will the opportunity that we have right here between Hornberger and Josh are slate. It's not just hornberger. We have the chance to alter the entire trajectory of the Libertarian Party. In one shot when I didn't even expect that to be the case until like twenty twenty two Joe money. You're you're absolutely right and I gotta say I mean I think that like I think you guys have essentially already one. I mean I really do. I think that I think that the I remember when when Matt Welsh wrote that article about Knicks are walk winning the chair and the the article was like real estate elp. EMC rebuffed at the at the chair. You know election and that was kind of their take and I do think that the outlook was kind of along the lines of what you had said before where it was like well. Here's this thing. They came along. They were temporary. They didn't win and that's the end of them them but what they didn't realize was that was. Just you guys getting started. That was just the very beginning and of course in response to that. That's when you know like Tom and myself often Jason Stapleton and man's Raider Pete Raymond. Whatever he's calling himself this week he he came in as well but all these really great like podcasters in the Liberty Movement started coming in more and more attention started coming? And I'll tell you I mean. I think that to me when I saw nick saw walk attend that Ron Paul Halmi says event and he's coming up and trying to take pictures that was assigned to me where I was like. Hey we've won like the Libertarian. Movement has beaten the Libertarian in party establishment. It's our party now. I was looking the other day on facebook. They were holding these polls. Like an a presidential candidates. I mean Lincoln Chafee was getting like nothing Hornberger was crushing. Adam Co cash in the poll that they had head to head and this is online. I mean this is not where hornberger strength three has been in his online. Though this is this is an even there he's dominating these like little like unofficial facebook polls. This is this. This is our party at this point. It's ours to take back so like you said a lot of the hard work's been done the war is kind of been fought and won and now it's just a matter of like closing using the deal and so now is the time join. Join the party. Become a delicate joined the l. p. m. c.. And let's let's have some fun man revolution part you have do you have a A sign up link. I don't have to. I have to push josh in.

Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn And Dominic Grieve discussed on Coffee House Shots
"I'm joined by cables and James for safe while James. We're expecting a number of resignations this week. We've already on from Sarah Duncan which we will talk about shortly but yesterday Philip Hammond went on the mall showing confirmed that he was going to resign after Theresa May's final Prime Minister's questions he's jumping before he's pushed isn't he in the whiteboard in Boris Johnson's campaign and during the cabinet is it oh no we had Hammond down for John Throw now. He said he won't serve raises. A more serious points about how he has behaved. I mean there's a very difficult question to answer which is which is he was the chancellor when trees I said no deal is better than a bad deal. He was the chance to win all school. Fifty one votes injuries may kept saying that so it does raise a question about whether he was ever actually committed to the policy of a day of government element of which he was a member where he actually meant it. I also think he's behaving in a deeply irresponsible manner because it is quite clear that whatever you think of it Theresa May's with Griffin is not going to Paul sounds comments so you need to ease off rob some kind of concessional compromise to get this thing through and by what he's doing and the interviews he's giving in the European press on his shenanigans in parliament he is basically saying to you. You do is compromise or for any concession because parliament's elements can stop no deal but as rebel dominic grieve says the only way we see Sir stopping ideal is to bring down and it is not clear yet for they have the numbers so he is paradox the actually making no deal more likely I mean the question you need to think about which is which do you think is worse for the British economy in the short even in the short to medium-term. No deal oracle been government. I think it's a fairly strong case that it is a Corbin government. He's also making that more likely I e P regrettable about the way that moment is paving the moment and it is kind of hard not to think that he is goes into his head that he wants to go down in history for something and and he also is driven. I think bar a personal dislike of Boris Johnson I mean they all they are about as different as characters. Come be and I think there is kind of I think you see it's going to be this is undoubtedly going to be a problem for. I want someone Jeez people for them. How does more technocratic mind almost find offensive and so they feel bound by the normal ties of Lords obligation that people would find to a former cabinet according to become Prime Minister K._t.? Philip Hammond is joining the Google could score. Does it become nine on the back benches of <hes> Torian Dominic grieve like David Goal obviously who are very worried about the consequences of no deal exit. Do you think sees himself as being the ringleader of this new group and if not who else I think he seasons I was having a pivotal role play and certainly to people who are involved. Perhaps on various this what's up groups for being proactive and interesting have those speculation but world theresa may might play but that is not seen as a row where you have some really leading from the front at all you might be able to bring them in a backward way whereas I I think when it comes to Philip Hammond he is someone who's very happy to go and bat for it and you see that has multiple media appearances. I think when you look the with squad and is going to be a wide ranging faction in the sense that perhaps you have ron thirty figures who are sympathetic to the coors the coups being to prevent a no deal brexit but they will have different points of high father willing to go so you mentioned Dominic Grieve Dominic Grieve is in a very small number of the squad in the sense he is willing to vote down the government or at least he has said he is in a will to stop. No deal brexit happened has suggested he might be willing to do that. He hasn't said Faucheux but he could laugh will be in the more hardline element say the bulk of the awkward squad so whether <unk> actually property matters most in the day to day running of Boris Johnson's government before you get to what we think he might be that ultimate showdown but you might have a confidence vote is what can they team up on. Now figures like David Gook I think he uh of azan we expect for example Greg Clark. We don't expect him to resign anticipation but will likely not be in the Boris Johnson Cabinet and fluker join this great when it comes to confidence as its deputy FAA supply SA- cutting off supply seems to be a step too far when it comes to finances so the things that they can team up on would be when you look to what Ambrose described as an activist speaker Joe Becker and he saw that last week with their Perot Gang Amendment Dominic grieve came up with that is. Something people feel much more comfortable going for because it feels like a less drastic mechanism so I think that's where this team can come together and when you look within that you also have a Muharan reports you could as as soon as Boris Johnson is appointed as prime minister barring a big shock for you could have Torri M._p.'s defect to the Liberal Democrats. Now that's different element here. Those people here very pro second referendum the anti no deal shoe but it it goes well beyond and I would say the bulk of the Gook squad have voted for Brexit deal many times free times so there is one way for Boris Johnson to almost end his his problem there which is if he can get change if he can get a due to Vatan this group that the not so hard line in their ears majority that they're not gonNA vote for anything. Boris Johnson comes up with but they do need it to be a deal. I've been the Golden Association from those cases right and then which is if you are working. WE'VE DOMINIC GRIEVE STEVE DOMINATE GREAVES AIM is not to prevent no deal is to have a second referendum into how the U._K.. Remain in the European Union and I mean this is actually a real problem for some members of this group which is essentially when when you choose your political allies here it becomes your message risk getting lost. It risks looking what you're joining move dominant grieve in his attempt to stay in the E._U.. Raleigh than trying to prevent is leaving without a deal and that is going to be a major kind of questionable how his group coheres when varies of stress intention put on that will be put on it when a deal okay for example if a deal does come back do the same gamers and then just ingredients as well still vote against the deal because they want a second referendum and remain all always have as spent so arguing that no deal would would be catastrophic that they would feel obliged to vote for a deal. I mean I think this is their difficulties and contradictions within this group Katie. Tell us about Sir Allen Dunkin's resignation so remiss as of this morning the minister was going to resign today expecting the bulk as for Hamilton the anti nausea to as opposed to have the minimum amount of time between the new prime minister taking over and the being a vacancy in your department. Perhaps a vacancy theresa may try and fill it. It seems now we're getting to the shorter time may just be the vacant so Annan Dunkin decided not wait until Wednesday's. He has gone on Monday morning now. I think this is attracted. Criticism for a number of reasons fest off some have suggested. The Alan Duncan hasn't always been the principal character when it comes to the cools attached himself to sue people point to the referendum when he was in talks about joining the board and then in the end decided apparently because he cannot get a certain position by his name to go for remain and that's what people think he's insincere. I think there is a more practical note here which is it may not be specific brief but clearly what's happening right now. In Iran the crisis in the factories May as haven't have Cobra meetings to to be a Foreign Office minister. Dan Ready have one. He was suspended in field -Unding who's quite busy doing the leadership contest exactly the Foreign Secretary Hughes O._T.. Trying to walk away he is getting Steve if he doesn't have his upset tomorrow. It doesn't really paint this picture of government that is taking a situation completely serious. They and I think it was just absence. Idea which is very easy right now. I tried to haunt you paint the Tory party as warring factions when if you want to be the party of you would think that there is a sense that you need to look at your on top of this I thought it was quite interesting as we've seen Greg Hands Jeremy Hunt supporter today take to social media and and say that he does not support preemptive ramp to resignations and he thinks does play into the hands of Jeremy Kuban so I think it's just Boris Johnson supporters who questioning some of the time yeah we've had some comments from people like Hugh Merryman who's Philip Hammons P. P. S. on Westminster unstrap last night saying that the government basically dropped the ball on the Iran Crisis James. Is it the case that this is about how the government relates to trump will try not to relate to trump in closely. I read this government moment was as it so often has been on the trump. Administration was caught between two stools which is once the U._K.. Via Gibraltar had impounded that Iranian tanker it was point clear for there was going to be Iranian retaliatory action of some sort when you consider the soy's of the Royal Navy at the moment is quickly if British flag shipping wants to be protected against retaliation that was going to need to be active cooperation with the U._S. and what appears to have been the case is that there was a hesitancy about going down that route even though the Americans were suggesting it because they didn't want to look like they were signing up to the full gamut of U._S.. Close John Roberts obviously against the Iran nuclear deal which the U._K.. is in favor of home not having that this is a big strategic confusion on the government's behalf which is once you take a decision to impound that tanker then you had to act to protect your own shipping in the most comprehensive way possible and the seizure of his ship on Friday shows that the Royal Navy simply doesn't clearly is not adequate soy's to do that right now and F. was going to need assistance from the U._S.. Which is the largest navy in the world and so I've been there is there is a question here of of how this was handled and I think if it wasn't for the fact that was storage contest ongoing? This will be a big story. Also the other issue is the Jeremy Corbyn is not exactly Joe. Jeremy Corbyn is taking predictable approach which is everyone should deescalate. What why are we upset? Iranians in the first place approach of his question here I mean there is there is a I mean the government is very vulnerable. Were more focused right on time. which is you made the decision to impound the ship because he believed it was going to Syria and breaking sanctions? You've failed to Defend U._K.. Shipping why and finally we get the result of the LIB DEM leadership contest test the softening Katie expecting Jo Swinson to win or we or is it much closer than it appeared start the contest but I think when it comes to leadership contests mistakes ulcer in the Tory leadership is very hard for the polling often into Western. What is exactly going on is interesting difficult? Speaking to Redemption Bove's is the sense. I think that Jason is more likely to get this biting. The margin is going to be interesting to the case that perhaps it didn't mean every time you speak to lived M._p.. They will tell you how friendly the contest is and how they're absolutely delighted rather not at David J Simpson even basements in will say that should be delighted if adcose obviously has so it definitely has a slightly different dynamic when it comes to and clearly has got attention in the past few weeks while the Tour de contests has been on but it is good to be a very important decision you think about the fact that we could be having an election anytime seeing that he looked Lib. Dem's are in the polls. The EH leader in contrast to re Party is actually inheriting a very positive situation where the party has got to whether or not that's pretty Vince cable assets or luck intangibles having the party until about gay sex. Eh Eh we've got the media fakers which is going to be hard before these leaders than what happened Tim Farron and the general election so I think it would be a surprise of Jo. Swinson didn't get it but ultimately do you get the the sense that whatever happens is not going to be as big upset as tomorrow. If Jeremy Hunt Somehow wins James Davey and Jo Swinson do differ in terms of how they get what they want in a hung parliament scenario scenario you say at Davy for instance would vote for Jeremy Corbyn Queen's speech of a hard legislation for a second referendum in it. Jo Swinson is much less clear on that but it's very uneasy about since she doesn't think you can trust Jeremy Corbyn too so the outcome of this contest is really important isn't it. I was very struck by in your writer for a debate that you took part on quizzing the Swinson and Davey on Friday night of this difficulty for the still skull by coach of what they say and also how they position themselves on the one hand they want to say to remain voters. You can't trust Jeremy Corbyn an inch on the other hand they want to try and create this brewed remain alliance and suggests that they'll they'll do whatever they need to do to stop brexit. They're not worried about their own party. I mean but he's going to be attention. I mean one of the things about general election is but even if general elections before breakfast it won't be for solely on Brexit and it'll be a difficult question former Lib dem's which is the Lib Dem's pro remain position is trucks into them a certain kind of middle class prosperous demographic but are probably probably you but not pro all of the taxes that Jeremy Corbyn with I'd like to place on them and how Lib Dem's navigate that question what was going to unconvincing in your blog. You're saying they were saying oh we'd vote for the Queen speed for them. Vote Down the budget. I kind of that way so I think that as a kind of tricky question also fascinating question which is we'll talk a lot on this bogas about Boris Johnson the polls how him getting a poll bounce with affects things I think is also worth noting gene to see whether the Lib Dem's got any kind of bounce service extra not where they're going to get that much but there's extra coverage a Nudie will get because I think if you look at the decline and support Jeremy Corbyn among Labour members if a new more energetically dome and leader you live in homes Po position is maintained. If Labour's can all regularly coming second in the polls because Boris Johnson is brought back some voices from the BREXIT party.
What envoy's downfall tells us about UK-US relations
"We're looking at the crisis. In Anglo American relations following the resignation of Britain's ambassador to Washington Kim Derek who'd been denounced by the the American President Donald Trump as a pompous fool amongst other things joining me on the line from Washington D._C.. Is Our U._S.. National Editor Edward Loose and here in the studio is Jeff Dyer who was Washington correspondent for many years ed first of all. I was just reading an article which would say this is a low point in U._S. U._k.. Relations one of the lowest ready in the postwar period. We're in the midst of the events but do you think that sounds like a feathered. Yeah I mean I wouldn't put it on this guy that suicide nineteen fifty six and of course one or as Johnson comes prime minister seeming he does become prime minister will at least band sort of temporary revival of warm legs between from Britain's prime minister because he's a backer of jokes has been openly scathing Theresa May yes. It's unprecedented to have a president chase a British ambassador out of town like this. It's caused the shots here and I think the fact that the rest of Washington other than the president and some of the henchman around and is shocked you know as everybody else shows there is probably still quite a deep underlying strength of a bias there and we'll to feeding towards Britain yeah just give us a sense of that that unto recap for those who haven't followed. The story what happened was that succumbs diplomatic cables private diplomatic cables were leaked. They said some fanny unflattering things about the trump administration but then the president went ballistic when you say there is <hes> shock in Washington. There is a census there the president trump has overstepped him up because he oversteps all day doesn't he he does I think most people in Washington have been entertained the British residence many times that a web because they see who else is there at the parties and receptions and so forth but the the trump administration senior officials including jared Ivanka John Bolton during the station's defending off at enforce as well and that the idea that for that can dr is some kind of each state anti-trump A._M.. He's not being a neutral diplomat is seen as complete nonsense and have been sort of multi by most people in Washington so I think there's a great deal of sympathy bath. They know that Matt Trump many times when trump tweets out but he's never have a matching that that's false. I think they feel it's a different scale when it's done to a close allies when trump is knifing domestic plan. There's there's a sort of level of embarrassed but in a way quite reassuring well just but of course it comes at a time mm-hmm of great uncertainty British politics and some might think that the Khuda grass for Kim Derek came when in a leadership debate Boris Johnson who's likely to be the next prime minister quite noticeably refused to back him exactly I think rather than a crisis anglo-american relationship this demonstrates that just had diminished politics in both of our countries are at the moment I mean the overwhelming impression of this is the crushing smallness of Donald Trump as president. Here's the man who's the most powerful politician in the world old and chargers powerful military in the world these unable to see his office except through the prism of personal slights and through his bruised ego the revelations in these leaked cables was Kim dire talking about the insecurity of the trump administration and there's no greater demonstration. Demonstration that insecurity in the way the president this week but also British poltics comes out of this episode look incredibly small and diminished and Boris Johnson's behavioral that debate was the biggest example of that where by not defending the British ambassador who did nothing other than what his job is supposed to do. He has let himself and let the country be pushed around be bullied and have its foreign policy shaped by another country striking example of just how or strengthen brexit ears think this is about standing up for Britain taking control how the force of events events is actually giving his ever less control over what is trying to do and in a sense. This is not an isolated incident. It's particularly shocking because it's the United States but in past year and a bit you've had the Russians murdering people on the streets of Britain. You've had the Chinese he's telling the British to get back in their box Hong Kong and over hallway. You have very poor relations with the E._U.. Because of Brexit it does feel as if somehow the rest of the world is sensing that now's the time you can push Britain around that is the impression that ah that's a a very bad situation for post brexit. The new governor Boris Johnson if he does manage to leave the Tober thirty-first as first thing he wants to do is to revive the anglo-american relationship provide the special relationship of the call it and push for a very strong free trade deal between the U._K.. And the U._S. but the dynamic we've seen here is that actually the use is quite happy. President trump is quite happy to slap burden around. He has no particular attachment to any of these old relationships these old alliances and Britain enters. There's into these negotiations and a very very weak position where it's desperate to have a free trade deal with America and we have a very protectionist America first president who's very keen to drive the hardest possible bargain they can and to squeeze and is that that's exactly what you expect will occur if when these much-vaunted trade talks start gather Liam Fox the Brits Trade Secretary was actually in Washington this week yes and came you know decided not to accompany already Ma'am this invited to a steak dinner for the America. Her and getting accompanied them folks to see if I could trump the president's daughter this new columnist or even I'm serious. I'm not that I know who thinks that a trade deal between the U._K.. And the U._S. is a practical aspect of the next couple of years the the MOMS that the trump administration would happen the these are being fairly well fleshed out already would just be politically unpalatable any British prime minister whoever that may be would be unsuitable to the British and that is even presupposing it could to get through Congress. If there's no deal brexit on October thirty first and Democrats kind of representatives would lock any trade deal that resulted from it on the grounds that it would wreck the Irish Good Friday Agreement and you've got a lot of prominent Irish Americans in Congress Shooting Ritchie Neil Chairman of the ways and Means Committee which is the key one for trade deal who said if Good Friday goes up there will be no trade deal so the prospects by medically and economically for U._S. U._K.. tracheal of very very snip and just reverting briefly to this question of the behavior of ambassadors. It's quite striking isn't that actually a lot of Mr. Trump's ambassadors have been much more openly in violation of normal diplomatic norms than Kim dark it was the ambassador in in Germany has more or less openly quartered far-right forces in Europe. Yeah I mean that's the great irony of this woody Johnson in London Rick Grenell Gordon Something Brussels. These people have been agitating against the host governments with the one great exception. If David Cone Beam in Hungary it was blatantly over the pro or back Kim different actually breach any rules these lose that were breached with to leak confidential classified cables to the Daily Mail what he said in those cables with pretty mild in comparison to what American ambassadors didn't cables whatever the well about their government when the wikileaks Chelsea Manning dump my cut several years ago so Kim down actually. Actually hasn't broken any rules or even at anything particularly strong in confidence as you say. There's a great irony and Jeff. I mean presumably we can take on trust the idea that it's going to be slow going on a U._S. U._K.. Trade deal but Boris Johnson and will seek to align himself much more closely with trump administration what areas might he do that in China's and obvious one the trump administration is trying to push much more aggressive posture against China particularly technology so that's one in particular area but I mean ultimately if bortles not become prime minister will all come down to the first few months and whether he can get some sort of breaks deal everything is going to be focused around these first few weeks or months and the brexit negotiations. I think a lot of stuff will be secondary and so the question Asian is can he somehow go to Brussels and come back with some sort of compromise not withdrawal agreement but maybe in the political declaration that attached to the Dole agreement that he can sell as a compromise from Brussels and push a deal through parliament so so while he will make some gestures and some areas I think towards the U._S.. Really everything will be dominated around the the brexit deal and how he tries to push through parliament and ED. I mean this pops to begin to wind up in striking isn't it however the trump administration in some senses has made itself player in the brexit talks trump's stream of abusive tweets included criticism of Theresa May for not delivering Brexit ignoring trump's advice on how to handle the negotiations and one gets the sense is that the trump administration would see quite relish kind of violent rupture between the U._k. and the E._U.. I think that's absolutely right. It's not just trump you see e you as a geopolitical rival as before is John Bolton John Bolton Overseas Germany is the e U and he's being very openly scathing about Germany so it's across the trump administration might compare sectors stay gave a really sort of markedly anti e._U.. Speech in Brussels late last year. There is an undisguised as to see the E._U.. break-up fail for many reasons both and has his own reasons to do with week international organizations and spend much on defense trump thinks that this sort of towel to rip the Pulse America in terms of trade and of course all kinds of people around him who are strong ideological supporters of the likes of Dick to Obam Montana Salvini and Nigel for <hes> so I think this is over time into the trump administration hates the E._U.. And last point than you mentioned Nigel Garage Alec Task Both of you were speculating but it will now as as matter a great deal who Britain appoints as the next ambassador to Washington will it be a standard issue diplomat or will Boris Johnson insist on putting in a political appointee who can suck up to the trump administration more effectively. Somebody like Nigel Ferraz de think it's possible that figure like for our Gopher Jeff I mean publicly Boris Johnson campaign have ruled out some unlike garage but you can can imagine them having conversations amongst themselves whereby the Conservative Party actually faces a very very strong threat from the brakes of Party ferocious party which is essentially a one man band all revolves around the personality and character of Nigel Farage as you can imagine some of his advisers may be tossing around the idea of what we sent him to Washington that actually just spikes the bricks at party that really leaves the way open for Boris Johnson government to dominate the right of British politics but having said that if you weren't actually that he would really because so much ill will among civil service amongst the bureaucracy amongst other people in the Conservative Party. He'll be seemed to be selling out in such a way to more far-right position that I don't think even he would go that far ED. What's your view and I think that's probably right Farraj of course for the same reason I would be to send for charities from my statistical getting rid of her rival point of view Farraj will be dumb to accept it but Farraj loves being in this town? He loves frequenting the trump international. He loves himself.
"johnson campaign" Discussed on FT Politics
"And there was always going to be this transition from the first phase, the campaign sliver, the parliamentary stage and the second stage to win the grassroots membership. And yes, I guess the kind of guy grassroots members do like, but it is a sign that they read is something how to change the way they might actually be in a bit of trouble. Well, you're right. It's been a very bumpy transition from the first phase. Of course. Johnson campaign Westminster in the second phase, the first place was brilliantly executed with the help of people like James Watson, a former MP around his private office govern Williamson, the former chief whip I mean they delivered exactly what they said they were going to do. They got him half the parliamentary party got him into the second round out of Westminster into the country. The problem started obviously with the row that should the newspapers now. Not full burqas come in. He's a business partner of Lynton Crosby who's a close friend, of course Jon around his Merrill, campaigns successfully. But they've had a terrible run recently in British elections they've sought the Australian ones but they advise Boris Johnson in two thousand sixteen and his abortive leadership campaign. They advise the conservative party in. Disastrous two thousand seventeen campaign where they tried to build a personality cult around a leader, you hadn't any personality. And as you mentioned, they run that goldsmiths a polling campaigns balloons and mayor in two thousand sixteen where they basically round the dock was so racist campaign in a multicultural, tolerant, Sissy. It was obviously despicable. And so they brought this guy in their attentions. In the Johnson camp between the people around the first phase and not phobic is now running the second phase and I'm told it was marked Fullbrook first decision as the campaign chief executive to bring in, in Duncan Smith as the chairman, which in itself, was a fairly controversial thing with some of the people who've been with both Johnson away through Moore under, let's flip back to policy for moment. And I think, you know, jomie Honda's also put out some policy proposals this week, particularly on corporation tax spending a lot of money on defense and also want about juden tuition fees for entrepeneurship. And if we don't think both Johnson's policies are particularly thrown good. You couldn't say much for Jeremy Hans either. That's right. And I think sort of going back to this question of whether the whole thing is a good look for the Tory party. I'm really not. Not sure that these policy pledges are doing them any favors. I mean, we were thinking about, you know how full through the Johnson camps policy proposals are on. I would have said, you know, they're throwing them out left, right. And center by not really just the right and similarly with Jeremy hunt. You know, his idea for, you know, having a tuition fees amnesty for entrepreneurs. I mean if you look at the social background of entrepreneurs in the UK, this is the most privileged echelon of young people. It's completely bonkers. It's literally giving money to people who don't need it. And it kind of been thought for, for more than about a minute, before they came up with it simply I was interested on the defense spending thing. Because when you combine that with some of the tax cuts, you opening up a huge question, IVA fiscal responsibility. And you kind of one that also how much Tory voters have changed into whether they really want to hear that message on things like defense spending, which, you know, clearly goes down well in these hustings, but will it sort of carry forward into this mythical land beyond Brexit, which both candidates is so key? Into talk about in which we will never ever get to. Yeah. I mean, it reminded me that if you remember the scene in this one of the last series of the thick of it where the slightly new age, Tori campaign chief invite slow to people to sit in a circle a circle of positivity, and as they throw a ball to each other each one has to come up with an idea and everyone goes, yes. And that's what some of these policy ideas have reminded me of that. No one's that she sat and thought, well, if we do that there's a problem here we all come back on, with Georgia's point about Boris Johnson seeing himself since she has a much more one nation centrist figure..

"It off towards and I don't think he'll be. Bullet about any hostage fortune. He has given barring cat strolls, and then he'll be two bullet about this. If it gets him to number ten, and then he'll figure it out offers an if he has to say, look, you know, I had to sound tough to get a good deal. That's what do, I think, that's really interesting. Also from the point of view of what people project onto Boris when they're looking at him and thinking, whether they'll vote for him or not. There was a very interesting sort of mini BBC focus group on this in which actually his very unpredictability and the fact that they assumed that they couldn't really believe his promises was actually seen as a negotiating strength when up against the EU, you know, it was this kind of madman theory as adopted, you know, from the Putin camper now applied to Trump, which is if you behave in really peculiar manner. You might wrongfoot your negotiating opposite numbers, which actually those who trying to choose between hunt and Boris in this conservative, Egypt contests over. They saw hunters more trustworthy. They saw Boris his very unpredictability and the likelihood he would go back on commitments. As a strength. But George when you look what boys is kind of talked about this week as was. He has to put some policies out. I wanna talk later about who maybe choice chance to what's going on that, but there is a bit more thought than maybe what was suggesting in terms of what he's actually thinking about that. There is some policy work in the Johnson county. They've talked about how to save high streets. They've talked about some immigration, things, very rare. You bit more than I've been suggesting that as outrageous, he's piloting, they just pushing out policies to appeal to the hundred and sixty thousand conservative party members is shows a certain contempt. I think for the party members that these are the policies pushing because this one was he's devising poses to appeal to into the terrace end of the Southampton game. This, this isn't veal thought process. I I think think I'm gonna I'm inclined climb. to agree on certain agree with broker that Jones is whole stretchy is will cross that bridge when we come to it that far ahead. But yes, I mean the policies he's putting out their intentions across the next bridge, which is getting into number ten. I mean, just look at the policy on tax cuts, full higher Ennis policy, which then retreated from very quickly. We've got a new policy on cutting stumped GT, which is already retreating. I think the whole load of policies that are being put out there, which haven't been costed properly, which I suspect, he's going to retreat from, however, you can start see the shape of what abortion Johnson premiership would be about. And it's encapsulated by the slogan of Fullbrook, who's the stress just brought in to run the second part of the camp Johnson campaign, which is deliver Brexit unite the party and then defeats Jeremy Corbyn DVD or dot for short. That's the stretchy. And so the first step is to deliver Brexit, which I think, is going to be incredibly difficult hangs over the whole Johnston projects, and you may not never get beyond that point, of course. But if he does the policies he starting to articulate give you a flavor what he'd doing essentially. Did he do? Is he take the policies that worked for him in, in city hall is London mare? So, whether it's investing in cheap transport or housing or socially progressive policies like the London living wage that he promoted it'd be those kinds of policies, and you'll start to see that..

"Welcome to coffee shows the spectators, daily politics cast, I'm Cindy, and I'm joined by Katie booze. And James was eighth. So over the weekend, three days worth of headlines were dominated by Boris Johnson and not all of it was good. In fact, much of it wasn't good. Katie Boris Johnson, campaign Raveling. I think we have a situation where what the Boris campaign had envisioned for the first few days of the Tory membership campaign, which they in many respects, it would be the easy after the parliamentary stage was done convincing MP's, who are skeptical the Boris Johnson to get on side. We know brushing since popular across rate. So this should be in theory, the easy bit. But he has come under lot of scrutiny a lot of negative headlines. And that's really kick started on Friday night, when a guardian story broke saying that police had been called to an incident at Boris Johnson's girlfriend Carrie Simmons has because they had loud shouting at night plates be. Being freed the police left as at the there was nothing to, to pursue that, but that hasn't stopped the neighbor then giving the recording to the paper. They haven't released recording, but parts that fight have come in, and I think it's just lead to a weekend of knees and some looking at the neighbors complaints the neighbors motives. But others looking at what this means in terms of Boris Johnson's character and his, his relationship and no matter. What do you take? I think everyone can agree that from the boroughs campaign perspective. This is just a bad knees at very least distraction, but potentially something worse because it has meant that you saying, conservative politicians use this as a way to try to bring up parts of Boris Johnson's pitch. The not happy with. So you've had, let's say Liam Fox is putting Jeremy hunt and others say that Berge this should be on Seraing questions on why the police were called by neighbours because this is a characterised. She and he wants to be prime minister now about the first hustings which on Saturday. Bruce Johnson refused to answer any questions, say it was a private matter, and actually what the audience and the members who wants to more by his policies, but I think it is building into the overall effect that he is, which means people can say quite easily. He is facing scrutiny. And you see that Naveh the fact that there is a debate going on this week that Boris Johnson this yet today James over the weekend. Former foreign secretary, so Malcolm Rifkind said that Bush, you've just said it in one line. Yes. Couple of rows and move on. Do you think I should of ideas acknowledged is trying to avoid the question? Four five times in the police were called changes the situation that dynamic. But I think in a weird way actually Bush could've used that. The police were called a NATO up and they decided that everyone safe in there were no concerns apparent here. I think, frankly, there is a slight arrogance and people trying to substitute that judgment from a distance for that of the police officers on the scene attending. I also think, Nina, she's obviously, if you hear people having a row, which is reaches a certain level, volcanic level. I as a citizen, it is a new all, and you have tried to contact them to see what is happening. And then on Seraing you can see why people can would contact the police I I don't think it is the right thing to do in that instance. But the fact that these people in having having been told by the police avenues, apparent then decided to go through newspaper inevitably cost out in that moment is, I think if you appeal concerned about your neighbor safety, your response to being told by the police it was all fine. But not to pick up the phone newspaper. But more on the issue is that Boers wants us frowned his school crit being determined to keep his. Life, private and refuse to answer any questions on it believing that if he owns a one question the Fred would be pulled upon so he has resisted that I've greater problem as Katie was leading to is this has frozen is campaign onto the back foot and easier for the hunt campaign say, well, where is he, and there's also more newspaper interest in the question of where is he and I think one of the other soy surprises to the Johnson campaign is quite, how hard Jeremy hunt is punching as Katie on coffeehouses morning. This is not campaign in multiple respects that they were, they were hoping as I wrote on or whatever night was night, first night when the results were read out in Boris's office. He wasn't bad embarrassed office. When Jeremy hunt school was read out which came before, and it was clear that onto beats and g-o-v is big cheer went up because this was the person that they wanted to face. Now, I still think that judgment is correct. Because I still think that even though boys. Private life is being chucked back into the spotlight. I still think, but trying to sell Jeremy hunt, so many votes for a main in two thousand sixteen so on his initial reaction to the referendum result was advocate, a second referendum someone who has been in cabinet throughout the Brexit delays. Theresa May's premise ship is seen trying to sell him to Tori. Grassroots is still going to be a very halls. But I think one of the things to remember visit just mile contest this is about what happens afterwards. Lots all Moore's is closest allies and supporters hope that he would win really big with the members and that would be one of the way they would get recounted, Tori MP's to give him a chance and to accept openly, his Brexit bullets by saying, look, this is the settled will of the party. If this result ends up being much narrow of expected of even a sixty forty win laws, which nauseam sciences will be very comfortable would be seen as giving him slightly less authority than people expected into have own Thursday night before took place and just looking at those leadership house, thing in Birmingham, Wednesday. How did we hunt? So Jeremy hunt, I think has benefited from low expectations. And the fact that it was very clear for the past couple of weeks that the candidate Burs Johnson's team wanted to make the final team was Jeremy hunt. And this idea that he isn't a skilled debater as Michael g-o-v that he re more gentle, the times Dettori today, cooling, burst in account. Slightly. There was that sense. I think that Jamie hunt came across better-than-expected in the fast hustings, and that's important, because he had very detailed on two questions. And I think one of the teams to see over the next couple of weeks is the fact that they have very different styles of six, but specifically about that Boris Johnson doesn't like to get into detail. And so far has refused to give too many details on lot of the policy ideas, lot of issues Brexit, and domestic, Jeremy hunt, mean was happy to give very specific onces, what exactly he wants to change the agreement. How exactly he would try and do it in a way it can be easier to criticize because you can say, well, a usual you more charming than to resume if that's your main strategy forgetting the change. But I think he does that he's more straight down the line on those answers. And in the fest, hustings birth jumps in Titi had the crowd on his side, and they're willing him to do well, but he didn't give. Specifics in the way that Jeremy hunted. And there was some rate continuing confusion when it comes to shown since Brexit position over whether leaving the EU by the end of type is really a red line, and he told Ian del who's Charing the Heston's eminently feasible. Then we had a situation where I think, in his telegraph, clones day, he appears to have gone further update saying that, that is possible. They also will leave by the date. So I think there's always the space you want. But I just didn't set an issue as I Johnson could find himself in trouble. And I didn't think to the point that he at the moment is not gonna win this role of prime minister, but if he's honest about, for example, h us to and his potentially review will he fro. I think there's going to be an appetite as the contest goes on for him to get more specific in give more details and Atma is not entirely clear that something is willing to give, I think some versions. Supporters to MP's. He was putting him about that. There was a reason he'd be a bit vague in the parliamentary runs because you just need to get free that that's the hardest bit. Then once he was back to the membership stage who'd be able to do more media in a way because at that point you start to build your profile needs to build a particularly, but used to stab wish will prime minister Boris Johnson would look like he might have done that say far because clearly won't happen Friday has been all the questions. It'd be about one thing. But I do think if you keep up this direction of travel, it could eventually build up, too. Big a pitcher negative one of him avoiding scrutiny onces when compared to some next to him, he yeses less exciting in many ways, is is doing that. The optics might not be good. So James detained the bars campaign does have to change tack. Will he be doing? More media appearances and giving more details. He should change full for simple reason, which is bushels Eason happy playing the coin of political the political approach. He's taking on the moment. He likes to be on the front foot and this very defensive. I'm not going to give anything away. I'm not gonna make a mistake approach doesn't sit not. True. And Katie said, you can understand why vows the approach for the MP's round just needs to get free, AVI. Now he needs to school some runs. I mean it was something else, which is get back on the front foot because the Johnson campaign is saying the magazine cover stories. We uneasy coalition of different interest groups, right? Then lots of people fighting forces there, and that's always kind of the way he's liked it. But the dangerous at when things go wrong those tensions ramp up between the different factions in the campaign, and that can be very detrimental. So I think he does need to don't makings arguments. Crisply clearly and. And one thing to watch is of people in, in the Johnson campaign now fail that Jeremy hunt made decision over the last forty eight hours about how to fight this campaign and so- Boris Johnson now needs to go on the attack. I mean there was some people who own I they night for this campaign was going to be done with lots of Jeremy's done. Wonderful was studying workers horns at created great definitely fake bake dole ever. And now Being being. more people who basically think he's to really go for him on the one of abortions closest allies to this journey. Home would delay Brexit indefinitely. Obviously hunt campaign an unfair charge. But I think you will see more aggression from Boris Johnson. I mean, this is so the, the bloom blue element of this contest is going to ramp up quite significantly, so not quite the boring straightforward leadership has things that we were expecting the members around James, Katie, thanks very much.

"So I don't make predictions about whether I it would happen, but I think it would be very good fit much Boris is a big projects man. Isn't he does like a big glamour project? Yeah. Nobody stupid was some. Some occurred some Jordan. And we comes the final round of voting here, which is about Michael go. So Michael Gough has stayed fairly close to Joe me hunt throughout this whole thing in third place coming within touching distance of overtaking him and several of the rounds. And when it came to the fun of haute on Thursday evening, he missed out by just an absolute whisker. And of course, this is led to loss of talk in Westminster was their vote lending going on. It was well known that Bosh Johnson would much rather go against jomie hunt than Michael, go, partly because of the so-called psycho-drama of twenty sixteen to try and reenact that, but also just because Michael goes a small skilled debate he's a fellow breaks to I'm going to have been a much more familial opponent. I think most people thing than Jeremy hunt would have been. Yes. Well, there's a man, I think that was vote lending postponed. Quantum reasonable scale going on people cooled found said it's will skulduggery and g citizen. Terrible thing there's a benign explanation for some of it, which is, I think some conservative MP's of the bat will of. Looks at the prospects of a g-o-v versus Johnson campaign playing out for four weeks. Blood on the carpet ending up. Probably with Boris Johnson's prime minister still but seriously damaged by a faith pretty brutal campaign. I think Michael go would have waged against him. And do we really want that for four weeks? Wouldn't it be better to have Jeremy hunt's gentlemanly Jeremy up against him in the hustings over the next few weeks? So the not happened. But the other thing, of course, you say is that the Johnson campaign, did not want to face g-o-v. So given the fact they had in their hands. The power to stop go get you onto the shortlist of two. I see in not just figure safely, but actually they had the votes in the hands, because there are lots of proxy votes being distributed, and they were in the hands of grant shops, and coming Williamson to the tenants of the Johnson campaign. So they had the power to stop it. And I think it would be a massive blots on the reputation of govern Williamson who ran a brilliant whipping ration- for boss Johnson, the contests have, they allowed Michael Gupta, gallon to the shortest would have been extraordinary if that happened. And in the end, it was almost the result that Gavin Williamson would have invented because it. Boris Johnson had more than half of the parliamentary party behind him. Symbolically very important. And it is Jeremy hunt's goes into the final two and it didn't look too of this, that you've rigged it. So in the end, it was perfect now, whether it was organized that I don't know. But as James cleverly. Another Johnson backer said, if we were good at fixing votes. We wouldn't be in this mess on the moment. Well, I remember I was almost three years ago on Soulsby raise railway station, heading up to London for Boris Johnson's campaign launch, and I got the communication from Michael goes office to do as well. We'll know what he did. Memorialize really in the Peter Brooks. Cartoon of Michael gave stabbing Boris Johnson for stabbing himself at the same time, and I remember exactly I members Boris than withdrawing from the race. And I remember the Wasser messages immediately afterwards from Tory MP's vowing revenge on Michael gov. And yesterday to Toya MP's told me that they'd voted for Jeremy hunt in order to stop, you know, Michael go. Going through to the final round. So what Georgia's said is true. There's a lot of pragmatism people wanting to avoid the blood penis, but absolutely. There was revenge in that vote to. Yeah, I mean, I, I agree that this is exactly as Georgia's described the one thing I would say, though, is that I, I do think one can over fixated about this, although g-o-v would definitely have run a more aggressive campaign. I think the fundamental factors. If Boris Johnson is going to lose this election. He's going to lose it, whichever of the two was in that because it will require some event that we do not yet know what you're so staggeringly destructive takes him down, or some gaffe revelation which is so huge..

"Welcome to govern house shorts spectators, daily politics podcast between the ship is now in its final furlong with Boorda's Johnson and Jeremy hunt meeting in Birmingham tomorrow. And what could be the first of eighteen separates hustings. So what can we expect? I'm frizz Fresno, joined by James Cy, then Katie balls, James. Why are we bothering with this five weeks of what we knew is going to be Walker for Boris? I mean, the unexpected does happen in politics, Katie rose ner spectacle than recently, but surely no expecting Jeremy hunter witness from the very beginning of this process. Jeremy hunt was the opponent. But the Boris Johnson campaign wanted they fought he had three weaknesses that played Boris his hands. The first is that he voted a most important is the voices remain in twenty sixteen. The second is that he is being Theresa May's cabinet. Throughout the entire Brexit process on the furred is, the hunt is instinctively, mal mannered politician, he's not one who tended to impose himself on a debate. And so, I think what we will see at these hustings. The campaign, intense drawn turn these things into is to something more akin to political rallies and feeding is made him. Feel good occasions, you all on his own conserved, his wonderful, and that basic will make it very difficult to Jeremy hunt to land any place. Now, you, you said you describe this as a five price. It's not really because the postal votes will go out sometime around July six and all the Akron results addressed the both bulk those will return returned relatively quickly, so almost whatever happens Leith role in the process doesn't massive out much because I suspect that the vast majority of people voted long before MRs over so Casey house. Michael Goov going to be feeling this morning because he lost out by just two votes. James explains. Why Jeremy hunt Boras favourite candidate? We all know why he wouldn't when my congressional because my Hoover's fight Michael win. So do you think he's feeling injured on redressed unpaid this morning? I think my Gobi feeling very frustrated. And I also think just looking at the today's papers might be when those days when you keep the papers away from your boss, because his multiple papers saying, Boris Johnson takes revenge Michael gov. And the idea here is that tactical voting was at play. And I think there's any question that there was had to converting if you just look, for example, yesterday at the number of savage, avid, supporters after he was knocked out of the morning vote, thirty three of them yet, but he, he publicly declared to say they're going to back Boris Johnson. So a least full Mobley said they were going to vote to produce Johnson yet. Bruce Johnson's overall anyone by free votes in between the fasten. The second clearly that means that there is. And that's just once we know about that means people were not doing exactly as they said. And I think the only question is does that mean that it was Boris Johnson campaigns water tactics were Cup? Couple of Boris Johnson, supporting MP's freelancing and doing things the Rona quarter, no instruction Gavin Williamson, the former chief whip sush Machiavellian type character he has been in charge of the parliamentary stage. So that's how you get the data tricks outta Gatien's, which we're hearing from quite a few MP's, the sense that there was an effort to make it so Jeremy hunt the line not Michael grove. And if you dictate suggested supporters seemed like a lot of those have gone grove, that didn't go Boris, so it doesn't quite add up. I think there's some people who feel like they're scheming, but there was. Sasha. John invis-, our is wrecking the fifteen visible orders when to Boris there for that would suggest that team is lent between ten fifteen votes to Jeremy hunt that didn't need to steal it fair and square. But ultimately, what's happened seems that's been some political plotting shark in Westminster. The volt shock that the haves. I mean, they say was evidence prove it now it's a secret fantasy awesome here. You say guess does campaign does seem as low at the upper hand of the other campaigns. But then, again, this is Westminster politics. And there's always been a little bit of, you know, Hugh Hugh can get ahead by any means possible slight things. And I think there are some in the Boris Johnson camp and not official perhaps, he d think that this was a very mechanical process, the parliamentary stages of this contest and not so that of a campaign Scott brought down or consumed, or thinking about the media doing pitches and social media, actually, it was just about gay enough MP's free. Whether that is free telling the bad things that would happen, if they didn't back their candidate offering a carrot. I mean, government sin has always said that he prefers a shop carrots, which is suggestions that you combine a stick with a carrot short Kerr James, the stories, I've heard. Govern Williamson over the last few days, really being quite striking the former chief whip seems to be doing Francis Irqah tribute act here. I mean it's kind of stems silent threats some MP's. In other words, I've heard one MP say that he was told by volumes teams that basically unless you sign up to team Boras. You not going to work in parliament and this government again and I'm going to personally see to it. Now, you knew MP's tend to exaggerate these things, but there's been a highly effective whipping operation, but I'm wondering, are you sensing some worry in parliament that Boorda's because he's had pretty much a walkover at this stage he'll have a walkover in the candidate stage. There are lots of unanswered questions about him, not whether he's a big, but basically whether he is, so relaxed his leadership style, create a vacuum into which some party Hardiman might. Step in and the Boras regime might be lot less often cuddly than it seems from his juvenile exterior, I wanna miss telling things is that, that can abortion satellites then aren't really bothering to deny that was voting taking place. What I do say that certain senior people in that campaign might have been involved. They, they're trying to say is the forest in the candidate himself didn't know anything about it. And I mean that is the frankly the review. I also think, as you say that, that one of the things is playing into is very big questions within the as I is the magazines with Burr, they're gonna three different power orbits around bursts yet. Very old London marrow crew. There are his palment relaunches the people who have been with him through the ups and downs. You have at twenty sixty in the time in the wilderness. And then they're all the people who've come on board, like, Gavin Williamson and have helped deliver this victory for, and presumably, they expect. Power non-return. Yes. And the first two groups are worried about the Lhasa group. And so, I think one of the things we are going to see is a kind of an all too. What about Boris Johnson? But his natural style is not restrict himself to one source of vice to. He will quite like the fact that they're all of these people jostling for the king's there, but I think he has to make some choices because from the moment he is likely to enter Downing Street to October thirty. First, this pivotal Davis ship is only ninety nine days and that means he cannot afford to waste an hour of that time. And so he's going to have to have a very clear structure when he enters dining Serie, and a very clear knowledge of what he is going to do. Do you think he needs to be clear structure, now because today's the day with a civil service will start talks with booth, the Kansas. Jeremy hunting Boris Johnson this happens before elections civil service will talk to the opposition, just in case you win. What would you like us to do? So this is starting now. But from what I gather Boorda's has new running the transition team in team Boorda's itself. Nobody is in charge arrest the. Boris who tends not to be around. So euro really getting sort of creative chaos now vis creative, chaos is imported into number ten wouldn't this be exactly what Michael warned us about that Boris for all of his cheering MRs ability to rally the troops as intensity, he doesn't have the decisiveness and the presence of minds to making the several difficult decisions day that prime minister needs to do, and I'm wondering to what extent, we will see not when he gets into office? But right now in his transition team whether he's able to have a hierarchy to have somebody who's in charge. In other words together grip of all these tribes who've gathered around him as James says, I think he will stop to fake us on that. And I think part of the reason that Boris Johnson allies, very happy, Jeremy hunt than the final eight is because they fear that they can actually spit that time fairly evenly between pairing for hustings against some. That everything is the greatest rat. And trying to have government will say, he he was going to be doing what I understand that Lynton Crosby team. And now coming in to help at the hustings campaigns hosting that they are going to be helping with, and that means that he, he's about extra there that will give others. You've been doing the parliamentary stages time to stop focusing on the on the transition on how what you do. Exactly when you take government because as James says, in his cover piece, this is going to be the most important ninety nine days of any prime minister given that there is a hard deadline, which may be trying to avoid, but there is a hard Brexit dead. Let an end of October which could mean that you having to potentially face a general election. You've got to say what you've done James as a tour gathering for the hustings. They will also be fighting a violation, which we hear has been cold this morning. So breckon run the show. See held by the Dem's into relatively recently. They held the seat in the washing seventy Batori impede. Chris Davis was done for fiddling his expenses. He has now been recalled versus the seconds accessible Rico following the pizza by Rico works, a new tool in the political when days if a certain I should've up for I came on. But if a certain percentage of electric in a seat, sign a petition demanding the recall of in Bonn action, baguette one, this is the second time it's happened the first being Peterborough whose MP was caught Zambia for speeding offenses. Yeah. And so I think we wait to see what happens here. I think the suspect the to Ripon he manages will be desperate to get his bond action in before Boris Johnson, all whoever becomes prime minister. Earn it actual test. I think one say show is one of the difficulties of politics right now for the Tories, which is busy did Morgan 'evote to leave. But the warriors of the Tories is that you'll find the lib Dem's could've leader could've remain alliance in this election, while the Tories in the Brexit party split the Brexit vote. No, Katie lib Dem's have been having miraculously resurrection recently, I mentioned, they will have -solutely want to win this, especially if they'd be replacing Toury, who was found to have been on the hey Dolittle, yes, and is lipped helix. Recall, petition some thought that I think feel on a Sonya. It was much more high profile case in terms of the MB had done this, cool case, she is in, I think, is conservative MP's and neighboring seas to this Hugh was skeptical that you would reach the fresh hold for full Rico, but the lip dams are. Adamant and very keen to get the seat bag and said they've run a very active campaign to get they needed about five thousand people to sign it. They got over ten thousand so they have very high hopes, and I think you'll see from the action, this is the kind of thing the lib Dem's obscene to share the keep building momentum. Now. It'll be interesting because the Brexit party light lip dams very well in the EU and actions and then had a by-election they thought they could use to show that they were an unstoppable force that can take on the tea party system in the end, they missed it slightly and elated very well, given the time it did me in that the Brexit party, I think, has reduced a little bit of the mystique, who perhaps a sense that it would necessarily take on both Tories and labour, obviously has a big affect it can have on the Tory vote. But the sense that they were gonna get lost seats in general election, I think, is in a bit more doubt. Now, the lib Dem's I think it could work in the way here, if they could win the see I think will really build into his idea that they had the pro remain Pasi. They are the ones who flocked tape, but if they don't get it, then I think you'll see again, the sense of all EU elections, Representative of what happens in first-past-the-post. The big difference is the Lib Dems in this half. The data for the Brexit party didn't have impeachable. The Dem's pointing Bod actions ver- as long as communist pop is being going, and they know what to do to win these kind of sees. And of course, it remains to be seen if Kylie will outlast lib Dem's, Katie less nights. We saw a rather disturbing video emerge climate change. Protesters has managed to get through to the Mansion House speech where they're protesting against the content of fem Philip how awful speech or something like that. But we also saw Mark Fields manhandle the protesters outside holding her by the neck and captured a very clearly on camera. I was Newsnight last night, and the image came through quite quickly. And nobody believes there is what kind of 'em reactions there. Yes, this is the climate change. Protesters' and one woman he was part of the protest was storming towards that. The top table and mock as filmed leaving his seat push. Shing her to the to the wall. And then grabbing her neck, a much Herat and it clearly on the video very heavy handed. You had Greenpeace healing to the protests suggest that he should be done for assault. I think in immediate Tom's, what means is the government have suspended him as a foreign office minister, so pending an investigation. Mark field has himself put him said he wanted to be put forward for an investigation. He has apologized. He said he made a split sex, a split-second decision to, to base the respond thinking that this person could be carrying some kind of web fused excuse I've heard of you. And so she media saying, as you could be nor seem to stretch. Yeah, he's, he's made the point that he made a split-second decision on. I think the suggestion that he accepts that was the wrong decision. What would be interesting? I mean just watching how this plays I you've seen some Tory MP's come to defense today, publicly and say that they actually think that he did, and particularly wrong because.

They're talking about that the strategy is to do exactly what we say. You can't do because it makes you hypocritical. Look how good he's been for other for for women in in in women's rights and everything else in the women that have worked for him and the heights that they have attained as if that has anything to do with what you have done with these allegations, the allegations are completely separate, right? And if you use that as a defense is a left going to buy it the far left. No, they're gonna knock you for that eight six six ninety redeye coming.
