"You live from studio one here in London. I'm Juliette foster and on today's show an economic miracle is taking place in the United States. And the only thing that can stop it. Our fullish wars politics or ridiculous partisan investigations off to the after many and delays. Donald Trump finally delivers his state of the union address. Was it a roadmap for his government or a rallying call to the faithful in the run up to the twenty twenty election? The president says a summit with North Korea will go ahead later this month. Can he cut a meaningful deal with the reclusive nucleus state? Or is it all just smoke and mirrors, my guess? Call open euro, and Jeffrey, how'd we discussing this and the day's other top stories, including old enough to play politics? But too young to be taken seriously. Why is thirty seven year old Japanese MP? Demanding more Arias P E C T I under the anger of leading British radio. Show says he's retiring this year, we'll be asking whether the era of personality led journalism is coming to an end ought to come here on the Dory. House with me Juliette foster. Welcome to Midori house. My guess today. Our caller Banura who's senior teaching fellow in southeast Asian politics at so us and Jeffrey Howard's Jeffrey is the lecturer in political theory at University College, London jilts gentlemen, welcome both of you to the program. Well, it finally happened. Donald Trump delivered his state of the union address to congress and a prime time television audience, the US president was opposed of made the eighty two minute speech in January, but his standoff with the Democrats who refused to give him more than five billion dollars to build a border with Mexico put pay to that unsurprisingly. Mr. Trump used the occasion to reiterate, his promise to build that wall at the same time he called on politicians in both houses to put aside the divisions and to work together in a spirit of unity. This is a question I'm going to throw into to both of you. So who who owns it you can decided amongst yourselves? But what did you think of? About this speech run of the mill or did either of you go into it with with no expectations. Really, you know, we had the first more than one hundred years or so of the Republic with the state of the union being written by hand and delivered to congress. And then the members of congress would read it, and then everyone would go home and last night. Maybe think we might want to return to that arrangement. I mean, this this bizarre ritual. I mean has become pretty devoid of substance. So the president didn't really articulate very many concrete policy proposals. Last night. He made a bunch of remarks along the lines of we need greater unity that that couldn't have come off as less disingenuous. I mean, clearly the president nothing. He's done it suggested that he's remotely interested in actually acting on these sentiments, and so people who who watch Netflix last night instead of the state of the union didn't really miss much a waste of time. I think that thoroughly run of the mill perhaps is a sim sign that Trump is attempting to act presidential in so far as he didn't actually say anything that was remarkable. You know, what was missing from this were direct attacks against the Democrats on the wall. It's it appears that in the midst of all these true like the stream of truisms that came out of his mouth. And in some cases, exaggerations of fact that somebody must have told him this isn't the place to take on the Democrats, especially when it's not clear exactly how negotiations are going. And so I think that he my my what I'm fascinated by with Donald Trump in terms of public speaking is that many people on the right believe that he is the second great communicator, you know, that he has a he's reading. Rian reincarnation of Reagan. And I think that previously in terms of that televised speech. I was impressed with that speech. And so far as he was able to kind of weave this narrative about the wall in ways that he simply hadn't before. But this this demonstrate this this went back to two old school Trump in front of a television type where he's really incapable of delivering the kind of pithy lines that are put in front of him..

"But it certainly being reappraised. It's not in ruins. But it's the worry is that countries and particularly corrupt regimes with whom China has worked have built up debt burdens for for the individual recipient countries, which they cannot afford to service, and I'm going to have a VO bad effect on them asylum. And that that is something of the his of growing concern. Any in light of what Jonathan said, it does really appear that even though China has denied that it's been reckless with its lending the evidence does appear to suggest otherwise because at the end of the day. You could argue that by getting countries into debt it gives Beijing additional leverage over their affairs. Now that may work to a certain extent, but oversee not completely if you've got the Malaysians who actually renegotiating debts, and the the the the the government in emir mall, saying, well, actually, we're not going to have this done. We're going to do things differently. Yes. Absolutely. I mean, that's the the idea and the idea of an investment in his way, it's not just money making. It's also about them out of influence, you can exert an outside your your own immediate fear of of infants as well. But I think we've seen in numerous for the China is not impervious to criticism, and it's not impervious to to negotiation as well. I Jonathan house is going to impact on China's relationship with Taiwan. On the possibility of them severed diplomatic relations, and again swelled in with the money issue. Well, try one is you know, it is a perennial issue, of course, for Beijing and the People's Republic, and she's in pig made this sounded like quite a strong speech about Taiwan is always part of China. And we have the right to regard it as we wish at the beginning of the year. In fact, it was just a restatement of existing positions. And I didn't think anything is really changing in Taiwan. The question more is how the trade war develops, and how that effects Taiwan and Taiwanese technology companies, particularly and certainly this this this is not been overlooked by the Americans over sleepy rather delighted about this. I would imagine because from their perspective, the the money isn't working they're having to cut back. So it leaves the field a little bit wide open. So to speak in terms of who could potentially fill the breach. Yes, there have been various initiatives by the tr. Administration to launch new programs, but we haven't seen them actually resulting in very much so far and that other players in this Japan, for instance, which is quite active in economic assistance in south East Asia and South Asia, and they're China is going to face, you know, a more questioning if you like challenging attitude from recipient nations in the future. But I think that that fits in with what the Xi Jinping administration wants, which is a more effective control of the foreign aid program. They also comes back as well to to the economy. We talked about this because the last set of numbers, but by western standards, pretty good. I think it's about six point seven percent holes. But again, that's that's a slow down from the giddy heights of nine percent ten percents cetera. So again, that's that could be the determinant on. This couldn't hit your. I mean, the economics at the end of the problem for for China is always and it is there to balance the need for growth, which the communist party promises to the Chinese citizens in return for lack of political rights and on the other hand, the need to balance the economy, get rid of the very high debt level and so on which slows down growth, and they're eternally jug league, those two, okay, then let's leave it there for the moment because you're listening to Madari house if meet Juliette foster and Mike guess Daniele Pellett, and Jonathan Fenby and coming up next began to ask if FRANZ is disruptive yellow vest movement stands to change the tone of public discourse in France for years to come.

"So, you know, this is not it's not a viable candidates vanity project and Trump is sort of goading him that tweet that you're referencing about the the rent. He says, you know, he doesn't have the guts to do it. Because Trump would be delighted to have Schultz in the race will say said that Trump is a small him. Yes. Which also all isn't too smart as Trump. I mean, but this this is the only real path if you were to hold the election right now against generic democrat, Donald Trump, Donald Trump would lose. There was a there was a poll that said will you definitely vote against Donald Trump. And he had fifty seven percent said, yes, I mean that that is an impossible statistic. If that were to hold up going to the election, the only possible way he could win the electoral college, therefore. Is to split the vote siphoned off votes from the democrat into the independent run and Schultz could actually do that. So it's why Democrats are extremely up in arms against this candidacy, but also as well, Stephen look Schultz who set on standard, independent got Michael Bloomberg another billionaire who may some the Democrats know all these other multi-billion rich simply using the ball to play at politics, and frankly on the public sick of this because these guys are elites because they got big fat wallets one would hope so really thinking back well sort of four years or so when there was a decent human being in the White House. In fact, decent human being with a very decent wife as well. You know, it that seems the Obamas bomb. The mall that that that time has has has he is president has gone. The just the better. They look I mean, they you know, I wish I wish that she'd run for president because I think she'd get in. But I think he's had enough opponents to, but I think that no I hope that, you know, the the experience of Trump will make enough Americans think actually, you know, we need someone who doesn't understand politics who doesn't understand what needs to be done because you know, what they've got at the moment is just disastrous. I mean, you know, this this clown who shoots his mouth off. Who's who never told the truth? I was reminded. I was talking to someone that weekend.

They're following the trend because you see most media companies as they are trying to to to have some sort of pay wall because you know, was not working was not profitable, we doubted despair while his own, but even as a newsletter that can carry a lot of weight, right? That's very popular right now. And there's so many influential ones what what are they going to put behind this newsletter? Well, the thing is I think you expect more, you know, business stories or the demergers interviews with designers. But they said. We will talk also about climate change. So we'll be I I don't think would be super specific only for business as well. And the thing is what they have. I saw an interview one of the top editors they have a team almost every continent in the world. So I think they'll start using those resources so people that work for vogue, one of the manual -cations around the world or G Q wide the will contribute for this newsletter as well. And they've asked to believe wolf can blow, you know, the the top attitude essay, do you think it's going to work say, well, he doesn't oh.

What do you think any worked? You know, you you have the New York Times they're doing very well. Financial the digital subscriptions. I think people realize it is very hard to maintain website, especially from the media brand that people will use to pay. So I think that just following that him might be a good move in my opinion.

You you cover magazines for the stack here on monocle twenty four four, and you mentioned trends there, obviously, this'll be probably cutting edge talking about trends in the industry, but it's it's a little bit behind on that newsletter format has I mean in the titles that you often look at on the show is that really working for people right now. It's interesting. We I I can see a little bit Rene since of of the newsletter because I know even when internet started in a way, it was quite common to have. Oh, those new lapses, and I think.

You know, you'll used to operating in scaled who used to operating probably with a few more zeros, if we're being perfectly honest and a high capacity of rooms and stuff tummy. What is the challenge of coming into a smaller company like this? And what do you think of the opportunities from having been in that kind of world? So one of the things that I like to think about that. I can bring to design hotels is over the course of my career with merit. I have spent a lot of time working on trying to develop partnerships. It doesn't own the hotels. They partner with owners of hotels, and they franchise, and yes, it is extremely large scale. But the only way that they can be successful is by developing strong partnerships. Most of those hotels are owned by financial owners or institutions and you still need to develop a good relationship. So where I think I can now have an even greater impact. And a lot of fun is by working with individual owners and developing. That partnership. We work with the hotels. They are individual brand curates up to help support our brand. But at the end of the day were distributing their hotel were there help or their partner in terms of trying to put business into the hotel. We leverage the partnership with merit where married has its loyalty program. And that's a channel that we take advantage of in order to put customers into our owners hotels, and that's where I think I can bring that partnership point of view to help make them successful, which in turn makes design hotel successful and wh-. Do you think you're going to be the important topics for the hospitality industry and feel self helming design hotels over the next twelve months won't compatible expect to see as you get into full swing that this role. What can we expect for design hotels for the next two to five? So what we described to our member hotels back last fall is still something that we're going to pursue this year. Those are organized around making sure the number one that the brand continues to thrive. Live. So in two thousand nineteen you will see engagements with artistic cultural design oriented individuals that design hotels can sponsor to show that the brand is still resonating really well with that community. We are going to be working on things that we can provide to our member hotels. So such that we try to engender their loyalty how we continue to pull those hotels in. We added. We read it over thirty hotels last year and ended the year over three hundred hotels in our portfolio. So we will continue to add hotels as we can continue to curate our portfolio, and then finally we're going to continue to follow the community. And where do they want to spend their time where do they want to engage with architecture, design and culture, and where can we then follow them or lead them? And continuing to really make sure that the design hotels brand meets the needs of its originals and of its community, the design hotel c pizza coal talk. Komo nichols.

"With the blunt quip and white dog turns ninety this month as all to come here on Midori house with me Juliette foster. Welcome to my Dory.

Welcome to both of you high. Now, let's start with the Turkish leader Richard type urge one because he has threatened to launch an all out offensive against Kurdish troops in Syria. If America delays pulling its troops out of the war-torn country in surprise announcement made last month US, President Donald Trump said that two thousand soldiers will be withdrawn from Syria. The news was welcomed by Turkey, which regards the Kurdish forces as terrorists. However, Tokyo officials have accused America of making a grave mistake in demanding assurances on the safety of the Kurds ahead of a troop withdrawal to say that this is a rather untidy situation. Tim is to put it mildly. Indeed. And let me get even more complicated. The Kurdish troops in question. Pretty. Much what the Turks regard as terrorists despite that the Americans have nominee and training them for some time. Now, so the Americans are imbedded with these goodish troops in northern Syria up to two thousand of them mostly special forces of that. And they are what is stopping Turkey making a third incursion into Syria to attack these Kurdish troops, and despite this rhetoric from Mr. Owen, I don't think they will do it. If the Americans are still in the way because America still has enough leverage. And what has happened over the past week is after Mr..

"Of what came out to the G twenty. But this just makes the negotiations even more areas because the companies you see Shep rice is being affected are going to start worrying as to what's going to happen. Once these these deals that the the elephant in the room at that that dinner was intellectual property touch me. This is this is Donald Trump's real bugbear. And I guess what? The markets are service would have been looking for with something perhaps reassuring about that. But it just seems to be quietly kicked into the rough. Yes. Well, that's never really been on the table. As far as I'm concerned here, the real essence of this fight. And it is a big fight is technology and China's ambitions on the what is called made in China twenty twenty-five policy program, which is a pretty casual program, but it's offficial intelligence electric vehicles. Everything else on China wants to be at least equal with the United States by twenty twenty five in high advanced technologies. It's. Long way behind the moment. And it's classic way of going about that which is either to buy up technology and copy it or steal. It is now. The real issue which is here, but China isn't going to give and she shouldn't make a not going to give way on that. And not going to say, oh, we're happy to be number two technologically in the world. We will always follow. You. We will do is. You say to that. That is not going to happen. What Trump Trump's other problem is that his own ministration is very divided on this. He's got the treasury. Steve Mnuchin who wants to do a deal and Larry cudlow is chief economic adviser on their hand. He's Michael Navarre and ROY. Trump on this Trump has seemed to have Trump's here. And they are we've got to nail China down. This is the real big fight for if you like primacy in the world, then let's turn this around in the time that we have available because Donald Trump has said that he's not afraid to impose more tariffs. But you do have to ask yourself, Terry. Whether it's the political and social impacts of the trade walls that could ultimately force him into a retreat. Now, I ask you question with the GM plant closure issue in mind because GM has said look we have to streamline our operations to customer needs. But at the same time where responding to the trade walls. Well, exactly Anina Trump's main hope out of all of this is to try and get a deal is going to appeal to his own base. Whether that's in terms of selling US foam products into China. Whether that's in terms of the steel industry that he's really hoping to boost the domestic industry, that's the big concern and one final point it's slightly complicated by I mean, we heard an F M six had six yesterday in Britain. We should be really wary about Chinese technology companies, and whether they are trying to effectively listen in on us, very very briefly, Jonathan we'll just of course, is in the dimension of the next presidential election and Trump's desire to be reelected, including his base is not enough as we saw from the mid tone to get him reelected on the other hand, if he puts on tariffs, particularly the new set of terrorists that is going to send up American prices, consumer prices inflation and interest rates, and he doesn't want that. Okay. So what's the space? But you're listening to Midori house here with me. Juliette foster, terraced yachts and your.

"You know, we heard the clip off the off of of Trump blasting Kim Jong. Last year will spend much of this year according adversaries, unlike the past year, his cozy relationship with dictators creates a bit more of a sticky situation at the UN doesn't that Carlo it does. I think in in terms of the antipathy that the current administration has for the UN and also some of Donald Trump's very clear public statements about the United Nations. Not doing anything problems, I think is important for us to recognize that. Perhaps one of th that we have to recognize that some of the things that Donald Trump does not novel. So there's a very healthy tradition over the last thirty years, at least since Reagan Reagan administration of conservative administrations in the United States, bashing, the United Nations. And in fact, the common denominator here between the Bush administration. The second Bush administration and Trump is John Bolton, right? And so John Bolton actually is probably fueling Trump's rate. Against the United Nations. Bolton himself was in the very similar position that Nikki Haley was in in terms of being a ambassador to the United nation who doesn't believe at the United Nations should exist as a prominent institution. And so this is it makes it makes sense. I also think that in this was a our conversations based on us CNN editorial. And I think that that aditorial also kind of gets it wrong that this is not this anger against the United Nations is not novel to Donald Trump. It makes sense for us to include it into in all of the other ways that he's tried to rearrange up end as you said traditional alliances. But at the same at the same time, we, we can think of many, many votes on Palestine where the United States the United States and Israel almost alone in terms of these outcomes. So I think that John Bolton is getting his way he has a second shot at this to to try to stabilize the America's relationship with the United Nations. As much as possible. And at least at this stage we haven't gotten to the point where we're, we're in the Reagan administration where we're withholding the United States of withholding funny all fully. The the, the perspective towards the the, the the, the United Nations because I think it was during the. The second Gulf was attempt Donald Rumsfeld and George and George W Bush expressed this frustration with the United Nations because it was very political because the the council will split about backing this War. I think it was Rumsfeld said, well, look, you know, maybe the thing to do is just to get rid of the that the United Nations because as a body, it is pulsed. It's best and we don't need it. It is not fit for purpose in the twentieth century as. Again, if you're absolutely correct. What we're seeing perhaps is an extension of that point of units gains of a bit more traction because you've got the ideal figurehead in front of you in other words, Donald Trump to to actually, if if he can't all their authors around him, who will do that. But clearly he backs the sentiment. You are listening to Midori house here with me. Daniel Bates Juliette foster and Carlo, but Noura I wanna drag us out of the US now and tickets.

But in Thailand, even the suggestion of political satire can come with serious consequences. The artist known as headache, however, is remaining defiant. His stencil art around Bangkok regularly takes aim at the country's most powerful leaders such as the depiction of Thailand's hunter, chief as a lucky cat with one paw raised ready to rake in the cash. So Carla, why is headache been able to get away with this first off? Well, it's very interesting to see if he'll be able to get away with this wave of international publicity isolated because this this piece was covered across the region, and you know has been is being picked. We're talking about it right now. He is hit. The comparison is between him at Bank, see, and I must admit that the, you know, his public persona is slightly more open. There's there are videos of him having interviews. With other kind of independent art media, and this is something that the the, you know he himself says he doesn't worry about actually the police coming after him because they wouldn't do something that would raise some type of international backlash..

"Journalist and broadcaster Juliette foster and Carlo Manera senior teaching fellow in South East Asian politics at. So as welcome both to the program, we'll get to the US supreme court in a moment. But first news broke a short time ago that rod Rosenstein the American deputy attorney general is expected to leave his post. The reports come just days after it was revealed. He discussed secretly recording Donald Trump and invoking the twenty fifth amendment, which would remove the president from office or could Mr. Rosenstein is the top Justice department official overseeing the special counsel investigation and has long been a defender of Robert Muller, but has also been in the crosshairs of the president for what Trump calls a witch hunt. It's unclear whether he will resign, but it's expected. He could be leaving that post regarding the Russia investigation. Perhaps Juliette will start with you. This isn't all good news for Mr. Trump visit if he's l.. Well, yeah, not necessarily because look at the end of the day, you can writes, Mr. Trump has actually condemn. Named the Muthu investigation as a witch hunt and that it's motivated by politics. Even though mullahs himself is a Republicans, let don't quite know how you can square those ends. But if he he will. He will hope the term Rosenstein successor will use his authority to close this down. But if he does closed on the murder inquiry, then it will feed the conspiracy will say, well, maybe mood a very close to the truth, and that's why you'll shutting it down and also as well Mr. Rosenstein successor. He was in my opinion, legal experts. He was happy to have some very good grounds to shut it down. If he's actually coming to some kind of pressure then doesn't that cheapen the value of his office or the the is ability to be objective and also as well. This is an administration which has got more leaks coming out of it, a burst pipe releases water. If this, if this an inquiry wash shutdown, my fairy is that there are people who spent a lot of time and energy trying to excavate things, and they will come to the conclusion. We'll, you know what you can't sign. It's the truth, and perhaps they'll be. Yet even more leaks into the public domain. So perhaps the best thing to do is just to let Mr. Moore and his team get on with it and write any consequences if indeed there already. Yeah, if there is pressure from the White House here, it's probably a fine line Carlo for the president. If he were to replace Rosenstein, it could be seen as obstruction of Justice, same too. If he fills the role was someone seen as more favor- favorable or that could have influence over Muller himself. So no matter, it's a tough balance for the president. Is it none? It's a tough balance, but I think that this has been a department of Justice that he simply cannot figure out how to break up or how to reduce its influence over the Muller investigation. But also the fact that it's a kind of I'm sure Trump sees the department of Justice currently as this outpost of intransigence within his own administration. And Rosenstein is interesting if he does actually resign and if his resignation is accepted, this is an interesting. He's an interesting figure to go first. Because this doesn't involve Trump removing Jeff Sessions, which obviously would be a huge political costs and it's not an end to the Muller investigation outright. It's perhaps politically the only a workable solution for Trump at this stage. What I was interested in is that if he is actually the source of the rumors that officials were trying to, we're going to thinking about using the twenty fifth amendment right to Trump, then I think that for conservatives this might actually be a little bit, you know, they can put their mind at ease slightly because what would be worse if they've found out that someone very, very close to the president was having that type of discussions. But for Rosenstein who is an enemy of the president, this it makes sense and for for people in the conservative media, this is something that they could simply just brush off now. Rosenstein will sell that piece in the new. He's been rumbled. But again, if he does leave of his own a cold or if indeed Mr..

"House coming to you. Live from studio one here in London. I'm Andrew Mullah on today. Show US President. Donald Trump complains that online platforms are suppressing all the stories about what a fantastic job as doing, which is surely the only possible reason why no such things are coming up when he searches his own name. My guests, Juliette foster and PD Goodman will be discussing this and the day's other top stories, including the ongoing redrawing of NAFTA the tarnishing of Alexander suit cheese, Nobel peace prize and the somewhat surprising place where English is about to become an official language. That's all coming up on Madari house on monocle twenty four right now. So welcome to Midori house. My guest today are Juliette foster the journalist and broadcaster, and PT Goodman, global economic correspondent for the New York Times, welcome both. And we will start in the United States where President Donald Trump has been fulminating against the media. Again, this is no more all less tedious or undignified than usual, but the president has at least varied. The range of his targets to include fake books and he should know he's written a few and such tech giants and own new media platforms as Facebook, Google and Twitter. This latter preoccupation seems to be the result of a recent bout of seething dawn self searching and let he who has not cast the first stone, which returned results that displeased Trump. Presumably those jesting that the White House contains potted plants, which would make better presidents Juliet. First of all, is it clear? And this is always a key question where Trump is concerned that he actually understands how anything actually works in this particular instance, search engines. You don't make it easy for me to you. Well, you, you do actually raise an interesting point because I think that the bosses of Facebook and Twitter and Google, they're going before congress. I think I have the next week or the week after whatever. And the reason why I referred to that is because Mark Zuckerberg went before congress when you have the whole Cambridge Analytica scandal, which broke and what a rose from that was the fact that his interrogators didn't actually know much about Facebook. And of course he sat smoking. So I would imagine we're gonna get pretty much the same thing when this trio go before congress, but I also think it symptomatic of something much larger that you're right. The the president doesn't actually understand how these things work. Rather he understands them selectively. In other words, when it suits him and I find it ironic that he's actually picking on Twitter, I'm not a defender of Twitter, but of course he has weaponized Twitter. He's used it as his way of bullying. People slacking people off in some way, shape or form because he doesn't particularly like them. But the only reason that he's actually lashing out, I guess, because I'm being very cynical here is maybe because. He's trying to stop this so called Blue Wave in November. Of course, midterms if it does materialize and what better way to actually Roddy the base by picking on the fake news media or rather the younger relative of the fake news media, the likes of Twitter, all these various platforms at cetera, and it is rather infantile isn't her will as you suggest doubtless play well with his base. But again, it's always it's always a fun question to apply to anything Donald Trump says. Is it possible? He's right. I mean, just for fun. Let's let let's Musil sales with this is any plausible evidence at all for his allegations that media platforms such as Google biased against him there, there's no evidence that that's always the. This is the internet. It's got everything in there somewhere. There's lots of algorithms trying to fish it out depending upon who you are and what tribe you see yourself as part of. But I do think though rather than simply dismiss this as Trump there. He goes again, he doesn't understand the plumbing of the internet and he's just a creature of vanity and and frustration. I mean, there's a lot of truth to that. He's a reality, television star at hard. He understands that if you're not attacking, then you're probably being attacked. But I do think there's a larger objective here that he is serving and that is to diminish all of the various scandals that are now knocking on. I at his doorstep. He's seen, you know, his former campaign manager convicted of Bank and tax fraud while doing business with some very bad people. Some of them in Russia where of course, we are still trying to..

"Mr. Trump said, look, you know, we're going to get out of the Iran. Nuclear deal and other countries, if their businesses don't get onto this and they're going to be penalized and the Iranian see Britain as one of the weak links because remember the EU it's actually all in favor of keeping this this, this nuclear deal together. So it's possible that maybe this temporary respite that MRs radcliff has is tied to that, we don't know. But the question is, will the Iranians actually say, look, yo, just let her go home. She deserves that we've kept in here long enough today just time for very, very quick look at a story in the Daily Telegraph. Yeah, I found this story quite disturbing. Some says here, man, health of Facebook post distressing crush images is a very small story. It basically about a guy in the United Kingdom who was arrested all he posted graphic pictures of a fatal car crash on Facebook. And to me, it's, you do have to ask yourself that you see a car crash. Somebody has died in this crash. You think the first thing you do would be to get out of the way. Way. So the rescue teams because actually do what they can to to release that that person potentially find any survivors, but to actually stand there and photograph it and post it because it sent, it's a human tragedy, absolutely distasteful. But then on the other hand, we shouldn't be surprised because remember there has been footage over hostages captured by is, for example, many of whom were beheaded and it was uploaded. So I did this because it was way it was a way intimidating people. But then there was another sector of people who saw this is entertainment, which looking about human tragedies here lives being lost, win standard, go out the window, then something is clearly very wrong. Absolutely to thank you for coming in. That's Juliette foster now still to come on the program. We'll find out about Apple's latest big.

"Ben Ryland. That was an interview with may with by dick Cavite in a special Ed on CBS in nineteen seventy six, which ended that report. No, it is twenty nine minutes past the hour and it's time for look at the papers with Juliette foster who's a journalist and brookhurst Juliet. Thanks for coming in better. No Brexit. There's no getting away. It is visiting the covenant and as if it wasn't split enough already, Philip Hammond really speaking out. Yeah, that's what happened. The shells of the exchequer sort of waiting waiting orien- corny, what she will really within hours of of the Brexit secretary Dominic Robb actually making a presentation yesterday issue in various technical papers, intending businesses, how they had to prepare themselves in the event of the United Kingdom, leaving the e u without a Brexit deal. It's actually quite scary, but he was trying to depose to really go for. We'll try to balance, I guess the the, the potential, the realities of what might happen if we end up leaving without a deal and somewhat to miss him will because this is the point because Dominic Robb he campaigned Sifford on the UK, leaving Europe. And he's, he's basically said yesterday during this presentation. Okay. All these things could happen, but remember is a temporary glitch bumps on the road because ultimately. Britain more benefit from leaving Europe. And then of course you got the chance of exchequer. Philip Hammond actually say, won't things paps on that rosy because in the event of leaving the EU without deal Britain's economy would be a hundred and fifty billion pounds smaller in fifteen years of their various other things, which he released the details about the GDP patent zone and so forth. But basically Philip Hammond who was in favor of Britain, staying in the European Union, he is is accused of scaremongering open Habsi if you like, watching up another level of project fear. So yes, you got all the work by Dominic Robb try to strike some kind of a balance. And then Phillip Hammond breaks it apart by Chucky, miss grenade into the party. So those divisions laid bare. As I said, quipped a few moments goes if they weren't there already. Of course, they've been there, but they managed to paper over things of it, and that's the story will be picking up on again in just a moment here on the globalist. Now, some good news. We go to Iran, and this is the story of a Nezin Inza Ghauri Radcliffe. Yeah, this is an interesting story because if you look at the front page of the guardian and if you didn't know who Nazanin the reckless was, you think his lovely picture which, and it is a beautiful picture office. This mother and her childhood four year old daughter Gabriella butter. There is a tragedy. This story because she went to Iran, which is the country of her birth. She resides in the United Kingdom. Husband is his British Richard Reid, good. She went to visit. Her parents took the child with her and she then finds herself arrested by the Iranians, and she's basically being in jail. She hasn't done anything wrong. She was visiting her folks. And of course there have been various efforts to to get her released from prison and the then foreign secretary Boris Johnson made her position more perilous by by talking about the, but by claiming that she was in Iran not doing any any harm. She was dead to to train journalists with. But it basically gave the Iranians next excuse if you like to to to to double down on her and extraordinarily they surprised everybody by saying, okay, we're going to give you a temporary. You'll be released for three days. So hence she's joined up with her daughter. She hasn't seen her foot for quite some time, the charges, four years old. And she was about twenty two months when she went to Iran visit her grandparents and is quite touching because she said that, you know, she's in the three day. She was looking forward to being with her daughter, brushing her hair, looking at her toys and having a child sleeping next to her because daughter has deter imprison. But there is a sense of what the big question of course is what the Iranians release her and could potentially be tied to much bigger events which are beyond her control. In other words, you've had the Trump administration actually saying unthreatening the EU indeed other countries which bat the the deal with Iran, which was negotiated by President Barack Obama base about Obama..

"Novels in Daytona slowest in Toronto and the new edition of monocle magazine is out on new stunts today. All organized for change. You'll be glad to hear. So molest rustling than usual. But joining me in the studio is journalist and broadcaster. Juliette foster welcome back to the globalist Julia. Very good morning, Russell. And you'll be please. These things in in Princeton, physical format of. We're getting in key fingers slightly. First one was what was the enemy. Plus the, let's start with the time because of course this is a story which resonates everywhere on the front cover of the front page of the times Italy blames Brussels and big business for tragedy. And you were saying, just before we came back on air, the this is turning into a case of information walls around this bridge tragedy. Absolutely. And what makes it even more shocking is that the the, the operation to recover the bodies are indeed to actually find survivors. It does appear that the hope of finding anyone live in the rubble is it pretty slim? The even before the operations being concluded, the the the blame game is being played out already and is actually very, very sinister. The direction that it's taking was basically happens that you've got the prime minister just said become tea, and he is blaming big business tragedy. And in particular, the company offers starter which actually run the toll system on this bridges, this bridge and indeed all the bridges around Europe. And of course, the other led to this. This is author structure is owned by the Benetton family, and of course they very famous clothing manufacturers and Hayes claimed that older structures collecting this money from the tolls and it should have used this money to pump it into the maintenance of the bridges. He's also said that one of the reasons why the press were all the slow about reporting all of this because the Benetton family has stakes in the Italian media. Now, on the other hand, you've got Mr. Salvini who, although he's not, he's not the prime minister. He's, he's. Sometimes he has because he's from the league, which is the coalition partner of the five star movement and Hayes, blaming Brussels. And he's basically said, look, if it hadn't been Brussels imposing all these spending restrictions at cetera, then the maintenance work would have been done. Now if you go onto the edit version. Well, I picked this up in fat on my mobile. This is the independent. I'm basically what they said is that mississau- Vini is wrong to blame Brussels because natural fat. If you're going to point the finger of blame, you should points it at your coalition partner because they claim that the five star movement in the policy said, warnings of the collapse of the Morandi of the risk of the Morandi bridge, risking collapse most as they say, what was I said Valetta a fairytale of children's fantasy. So whatever you had the engineers saying that we've got to do some maintenance work miss. Otherwise, it's going to go though, saying, nonsense Nelson's nonsense. And as the paper here says, the independent five stall true to its crude populist instincts wanted to win. Political support from local residents who resented the disruption and change the works create is what the British call Nimby ISM, not in my backyard but elevated into a political philosophy enough. That's the case the nuts, very, very worrying that the very people who have pointing the finger of blame, but they themselves were actually culpable were courting populist opinion on this transport minister Nali who was saying that the people responsible would have to pay for this. He's five star minister, and he's basically said, the author straws is senior management should be forced to resign and pay a fine of one hundred and fifty million euros. And as I said, MRs, Salvini has been blaming Europe and basically claiming look, you put you impose restrictions on us in terms of the spending, but Walter, the independent, his said, his look, whenever you sign up the single European currency, the euro like it or not. There are certain rules that you have to stand by, but it doesn't involve how you spend your money on crucial infrastructure. If you think about it, they're quite a few members of the European single currency, and they do invest their money on the on infrastructure and really. Again, we don't know what causes, but they're all claims floating around the construction industry in Italy because the way that it structured Matthew involved with that may have had something to do with it..

"So welcome to Madari house. My guest today aren't journalist and broadcaster Juliette foster and James boys US policy analyst and author of Clinton's war on terror, welcome both to the program and back to majori house. We begin by turning our attention stateside where the Boston Globe has proposed a coordinated editorial response as it calls it from media outlets and newspapers across the US to Donald Trump's nonstop attacks on the press new deputy. Managing editor for editor aerials out the globe says, we are not the enemy of the people referring to how the president often characterizes journalists. So on Thursday, this week, August the sixteenth, globe is asking editorial boards across the nation to hit out at what the newspaper called a dirty war against the free press. Juliette, perhaps we'll start with you. What do you make of this campaign? They don't make any difference. This is a blunt way of putting it. We can understand why they've done this because the the anti price rhetoric is quite poisonous. But then having said that this is nothing new in a mortar. Donald Trump has been heaping on them because this this rather nasty unpleasant relationship started in the very beginning in the early days because when he when he talked when he said, no, I want to stand as a candidate. He wasn't taken seriously. Everybody laughed at him stone and so forth. And of course you went through the the candidate selection procedure. He was a tattoo, then he's the lowest man standing. I did kind of ratchet his out from his point of view. It became more and more hostile. And the problem is that for Donald Trump, this isn't just a critical press. He's not. He's not talking about having a press which is somehow has has integrity. He sees it as very personal. It's almost as if it's now reached the point where I'm really hitting you guys hard that you've had to do this. You know, I'm punching you where it hurts MRIs while you've had to do this to make this pathetic attempt to somehow undermine me, but I'm going to win and I it. It is. Very sad. It has come to this, but then this is the kind of president that you'll dealing with. He sees as something very personal. It's a personal fight with the press. And because we know that Donald Trump nights to spin things, he would probably just defended on the grounds of look, you know, I want to make sure that we have a clean of media the American public to actually live with. But the reason why I'm skeptical about this, the position of the of the the Boston Globe, is that yes, I understand what they're trying to do, but the bottom line is not is not going to make much difference in terms of Donald Trump supporters, and the media isn't just newspapers anymore. People don't necessarily relying on the papers to get their news. They go into the internet and that's where it gets a bit more deep, dolphin dangerous because you've got lots of people, but propagating various theories which are very conspiratorial and cloudy more dangerous in the tone of some of them. So congratulations press, but it's not gonna, make much difference. James, would you check that upper? The editorial is sort of not as powerful as they were in the old days. Well, I think one of the reasons I would certainly agree with with much of what she has just been saying is the idea that the reason it Wakeman which differences that you've got a very tribal affecting America. The break Obama was a fine president, but one of the things that he was most renowned for which was painting not true is the idea that he said famously, there's no red state or blue states. There's any of the United States. United states is heavily divided not only between states, but in states, Donald Trump's detractors very Frank will not be reading the editorial pages of the Boston Globe, the New York Times Washington Post, or any other newspapers, which are are going to be taking part in this. In fact, I think that what this effort will do unfortunately is to reinforce Donald Trump's narrative that look, the elite, the mainstream media are against us. It's a pack mentality. I am now here standing defending you the non elite effectively. In many ways s- it's not new for Donald Trump, but it's not new within the United States. You can go back to the press..

"Russia's Defense Minister Sergei. So sugar has said that Russia will take response measures against NATO's increasing ties with Sweden and Finland, Moscow views, expansion of NATO with alone. It believes this is a threat attempting to encircle Russia and we can it's cloud on the global stage. Well, earlier on today Monaco, Gina Godwin heard from the journalists Juliette foster and Mary digest skier from Moscow correspondent herself. Who discussed the situation. What we talking about here, which is quite interesting, is Sweden and Finland, which have been as it were proud to maintain the neutrality non-membership of NATO and what we've been watching over the last really two, three years probably since Russia's annexation of of Crimea and the worries on NATO's eastern front. We've seen much greater corporation in cohesion between those two neutral countries and NATO to the point where there's actual. Been talk of, maybe Finland, maybe Sweden, maybe both. Actually, joining NATO now, I don't think that's actually going to happen because I think what they've got at the moment is almost the perfect arrangement in a way. It's a bit like Norway's position vis-a-vis the European Union, the they're sort of outside for the point of their own domestic politics and their own sort of comfort. And yet they can be, they can cooperate and they can be assets to NATO and they hold joint exit. There were some quite big joint Nordic exercises earlier this summer, so they do that. But I think when you look at the opinion polls, if you were going to ask I, the Sweden or Finland, whether there would be public support for joining NATO and abandoning their neutrality. I think the answer would be quite a definite. No. Even in cancer comes. Julia win the foreign minister wind show talks about response measures. What does he mean? Because surely that's not military. Yeah, that's what I was wondering. What sort of response would they take? It wouldn't be military, but you see, if let's say for argument's sake, in the most extreme instance attor finland-sweden decided, yes, we do want to join eight open, and so they went through the motions of this. If if the Russians did decide, okay, we're gonna get physical here. Remember that the the key article in NATO, an attack on one is talk against all. So whilst we could perhaps rely on on Europe to to rise to the age of than Sweden, where would that leave the United States given the big in between the president of the United States? And of course, the leader of Russia may look that is an extreme example. But if anything, let's turn things around that the relationship between Finland, Sweden, and NATO, it's it's not new. They have always had this relationship where they taken part in military exercises and in return had NATO getting restricted access to finish in Swedish as s space, it cetera. But given that this this agreement has existed for some time. Why is it now that the Russians drawing attention to do they feel perhaps emboldened because of what happened at that NATO. Conference between Mr. Trump and the other members of the alliance. Also, Mr. Trump's own quotes about Montenegro that they're very aggressive people. And of course, America's really America wouldn't wouldn't go go to war with Montenegro given it size. So I, I wonder why now what's. I think that's an that's an entirely valid question. I would turn it on its head and say that. Why I think that Sergei Shoygu who has said anything about this is I would suggest because NATO itself feeling a bit beleaguered, not entirely sure of the loyalty in the American president wants to try and emphasize how cohesive it is, how much of a future it has, how it's really bigger than the sum of its parts, and it could actually count on people beyond its its former borders. So I think the may be a bit of firm NATO as it were singing its own praises, putting itself out there to show water futures gore, married to jet, ski there, and Julia for speaking to Georgina Godwin still to come on the program, the Australian new-zealand newspapers, and why should children be allowed to design their own monkey bars.

"Trump's latest missive is that it wasn't written in capital letters. I think we need to strengthen the European. The Europeans, get your ratings, don't work this one out. I mean, it is that you was going to get these these issues which come up. Let's let's be clear about this. It's gained resonance because Donald Trump does not like dealing with blocks. Okay, he's he's more of the BI lateral list, and this is getting his mentality is a businessman. Okay, because as far as he's concerned, you do you deal with one to one, but the idea of actually having to negotiate with twenty eight states soon to be twenty seven, nine hastened to. But for the moment, twenty eight states and what he's done. He's actually been well, he's, he's been quite devious because he's he, he, he, he, he loves Brexit. But why does he like Brexit? He likes Brexit because like him, it's disruptive. You throw grenades and hopefully if Britain lease, it's going to encourage all these states to leave as well. A mutt means you break the you. So you deal with states on a one to one basis. Another example of his deviousness. It's three actually said to the. German commie because look come and do deal with us even though the gentleman Komai 'cause they can't do a deal with America by themselves because they all bound with this with with the relationship of the twenty eight. He also tried to tease out Emmanuel Macron the French to by saying, look, I'm going to do a deal. Franck should do a deal with the United States. Look this whole business about about one side perhaps benefiting the the expense of the other. It's never really been an issue as such. It's been quietly disgust, I would imagine between the Europeans and the Americans, but now it's gonna venomous edge to it because remember, Mr. Trump is playing to the house. Yeah, it's it's about the basis keeping them sweet and being seen to be the man who's doing something about this. But the problem is that it's beginning to hurt, talk to the farmers. They'll tell you what about that? I think also the way that the the way that this morning's new tweet about pre-trade one out, I think this is part of the businessmen bargaining exactly. And the idea that there is actually some deal to be done here. But what strikes me is the theater of this meeting. I mean, it's very hard for me to imagine two more different characters than John Claude Yonker Luxembourgers steeped in Brussels culture very tactile as well and Donald Trump. I mean, just the the, the contrast between the pair of them couldn't be greater and the idea of any meeting of minds there is very hard to and I, it's very hard to bring. So goodness knows what'll happen. I'm not. I'm not very optimistic. I, I think the half very nice meals. Very nice lunches and dinners we can be. We can be clear about that. I think also that Donald Trump does have a, although I agree. He doesn't like dealing with multilateral organizations. Nonetheless, he has this sort of strange respect for the European. Union and its trade string that nothing else because one of the things was last week when he was talking he, he described the European Union as a foe. Yes. An I took that actually in Trump language in the canon of Donald Trump, that this is actually a big compliment to the European Union and they should enjoy it while loss. You're listening to Matori house here with me drew Tina Gordon will say with Juliette foster and married to jetski coming up. Next, we look at Russia and NATO, and the organization's ties was Sweden and Finland.

"Welcome back to madari house still with me juliette foster and michael binion football sadly did not come home maybe go into paris who knows but it might be heading to croatia or france and one dignitary rumored to be in attendance at the world cup closing ceremony this weekend we'll beat north korean vice president rereally young name re is also the chairman of the north korean football association i guess that's why is there and joins other politicians who've attended games such as benjamin netanyahu crown prince mohammad bin salman we who can remember for that from the first match and emmanuel macron so is the world cup just a big hospitality exercise ladimir putin and some of his very good friends and which nations are on that list if so michael theresa may won't be receiving invite for the third place match well she knows she won't even if she did she couldn't go having said so many things about russia and about mr putin personally and the government he leads and of course still in the middle of this long quarrel over the poisoning of these two russians in salisbury it's impossible to go there would have been pressure for somebody to go if britain had reached the final britain france is our england england france playoff in the final she would had not she but somebody somebody who'd go by not reaching the final that particular problems removed the problem for the western nita's generally is that russia's run a wonderful right they've done everything by the book they've run it efficiently it's been happy it's been a lot of good games well covered the fans have been kept in order no hooliganism not a peep from any russian hooligans in many ways mr putin has put on a brilliant show for the world right and this is very difficult to western he does because at the same time they're trying to say the mr putin is running a terrible regime and you know everything is undemocratic this now russians appear to be happy the country of his at ease and it doesn't quite chime with image being put out absolutely because it's funny that's i'm i'm i'm big enough not enough not enough to remember the moscow olympics see surrounding i was watching television but even then i felt guilty watching it because of britain told us that well britain sent its athletes but america didn't go and of course you had the olympics and the russians are talia too because they withdrew their support of course there was this huge this sort of this there was a huge argument about the relationship between politics and sport can you actually separate them and what we saw here with the with with with the world cup is that the russians actually managed to chiba an i know speaking for myself i was i was fascinated when russia playing croatia because half the russians one then of course they would've played england what would that have done because the the the cameraderie amongst the it was really impressive ethan fans supporting teams that had lost they stayed behind and they adopted another team but what would have happened if russia her played against england and what would happen if england at one we talk about putin being able to successfully marry politics and football do you think he's done a good job in making gains by using russia's soft power during the world cup michael yes very well i mean it's it's gone in every way it's gone his way festival home team did far better than right could possibly have been expected secondly his biggest critics hometeam namely england also did much better lingnan expected and that will of course have dampened in some ways the criticism of russia absence by the english or by the british in general the other thing is because the teams that came through with the unexpected ones it made it avai lively spectacle and it was quite unpredictable and quite unexpected so it made for good sport which reflects into an upon good organization and russia's quietly able to slip in some impressive stuff so people were pretty free to get that i mean it's difficult finding tickets but they didn't need visas if they had a fan to get could get right fly straight out and a lot of people who wouldn't have dreamed of going to russia went there.
