Now let's dig into some exclusive polity with him now henry because the new intake of mp's about that not that new but they haven't had very many weeks here with you thought we look at the cabinet because amongst all the other things that he's talking about in their various what's up groups. He's just of a reshuffle. How likely is that g. Think it's hard to tell lots of people. Do think it's very serious. And there's been enough days of remember there's going to be a reshuffle. Downing street has had enough of an opportunity to scotch the rumors. If it's definitely not happening on the other hand is a useful thing for them to have out there because they are big things coming this week. Controversial things coming this week as you've been discussing in the era of this show so far and you know nothing will make a cabinet minister. Supress their concerns about what i johnson is planning to do social care like the threat of emotional the prospects of promotion so it may be real but whether it's real or not is very useful for danny streets. Have out there hanging over ministers okay. Let's talk about some of them. Then we've got some exclusive poland from you of where they have asked people instead of how they would votes because actually i think the latest yougov poll toys four five point in terms of what they think of the politicians themselves. Let's start with voice. Johnson first of all do voters have a favorable unfavorable view of ocean overruled. They have an unfavorable view. So thirty six percent of respondents to the survey said they had a favorable opinion of boris johnson. Fifty five percent Said they had an unfavorable opinions. And that's a negative net negative of nineteen points. So that sounds quite bad right. This is boris. Johnson is the prime minister landslide. Two years ago shortly his opinion rating should be higher than that. Well yes and no. If you look at the cross breaks of the polling so if you look at the what twenty nine teen voters think. Boris johnson the people who gave him this huge majority pictures quite rosy for him. He's got an positive rating of forty one points So it doesn't matter. That people voted labour and lipton In two thousand nineteen still hate him. They hated him in two thousand nine won a huge majority. And so you know while they're a little bit to be concerned over in twenty eight percent of twenty nine thousand votes. Just having an unfavorable opinion of him i think we knew. Twenty nineteen that. Were plenty of sort of tories holding that nose and voting for trump's and for whatever reason perhaps because they were a remain as you know didn't journey to be prime minister or something like that so actually it's amazing that the old leave remain a bike cross. Bike still is still that twenty percent of a miner's fable tools boss johnson fifty eight percent of leave us. Yeah well they're actually. Even that percentage of remain i think is not bath. Scrape lounge michael go. Basically every person who voted remaining twenty twenty-six spa so to many conservatives labor and lived in voter so it's not necessarily of you of michael go confined to that column on the spreadsheet. Well let's let's pick through some of those. I should be just one thing that we will ask me is always know gender split. If various times there was sort of think pay pieces written about how boris johnson has a woman problem and actually in terms of favorable and unfavorable. It's almost exactly the same minimum. I mean the main thing that. Let me about this spreadsheet at boris johnson. Whichever cross break you want to look at is that he's very popular. And it does fail sometimes particularly in this place although not necessarily if you go out to various parts of the country that voted you do have to remind both people you speak to and yourself. But boris johnson is the preeminent electro politician of our age. If our age comes after tony blair. Boris johnson should not be surprised at this point and he won a huge majority in. Twenty thousand hundred. I'm pretty sure that we would not have left the european union if he hadn't endorsed and campaigned for leave. He wanted to london. Mary elections in city which had previously not just voted labour but voted independent four. Ken livingston the man is very good. Politics should not be as fries to us. People like him. I mean all this discussion of the missteps good counterpoint. To twitter and i have a talked about twitter have tweeted. The chart that we're talking about you can see who's up and who's down amongst senior politicians. The only person polling better than Voice johnson is wishy soon the chancellor. He's got a positive rating. Yes and positive Yeah net pulse. Eight. that is quite right. I think he's the only person who was polled. He does have a positive rating forty. Four percent of people say they have a favorable opinion. Thirty six said they have a negative among twenty nine hundred. Conservative voters ratings at even higher than boris johnson. Plus fifty one to johnson's plus forty one among twenty nine hundred labour voters. he's much less unpopular. Boris johnson has negative of eighty-one amongst twenty nine hundred voters soon. Not just a net negative of twenty nine so again not very surprising. We know that russia soon became very popular particularly around the time the furlough scheme being announced but also because he was the first minister to appear in one of those early daily press conference to show a bit of carbon empathy and actually speak vaguely humanly about the disaster which was engulfing so many people's lives. But you know if you wanna feed this into a question of okay well. Why don't conservative impeach. Just dump richie soon. Four dump. boris johnson. I assume neck seems even more popular. While i do think if you speak to consecutive. Mp's the man is still just a year a half into being chancellor he has so far only to make fairly popular. Decisions will be in a very crisis dominated time and i think the next week the questions over social care in the tax to pay for and the months that follow will give us a much better. Sense of richie. Soon ex metal in terms of the internal debate and government policy debates political questions but also in terms of whether the public is going to continue to see him as a sort of a better version of forest especially interesting i mean seeing everything through the prism of lawyer we between the two men. The there is a issue is sort of ying and yang to complement each other. If if she soon is reaching into labor people who voted labour. In twenty nine hundred. And he's winning them over and charming them wall boys johnson's holding onto people voted conservative in thousand nineteen. That's a pretty formidable political machine. Yeah i mean ultimately if you don't see ya there's no reason we have to say i mean they are disagreeing on some things at the moment ultimately is good for the prime minister. If he's johnston popular yes certainly better for the prime minister. That is being dramatically unpopular. All completely unknown..

"Of trafalgar square decided that they would be one huge column for horatio nelson and four small plants for statues surrounding it. They managed to push dot choose on three of the planets before running out of money leaving the fourth one bear. A government. Advisory group convened in nineteen. Ninety nine decided that this fourth plinth should be a site for a rotating exhibition of contemporary sculpture. Responsibility for the site went to the new mayor of london. Ken livingston livingston whom i did not know asked me if i would be on the committee which i joined in two thousand and two. The committee met every six weeks working out the most engaged popular way to include the public in the process. I was asked if i would chair the meetings because they wanted someone outside the arts and i agreed what could possibly go wrong. Well the queen mother died. That had nothing to do with me. Given the she was one hundred one. Her passing was much-anticipated if very sad event less anticipated was the suggestion by simon hughes. A liberal democrats. Mp and potential candidate for the london minority that the queen mother's likeness replaced on the vacant fourth. Plinth welts collided. The next day the daily mail ran a front-page headline carve her name in pride. Join our campaign for a statue of the queen. Mother to be erected in trafalgar square. Whatever the panjandrums of political correctness say inside an editorial asked whether our committee would really respond to the national mood and agree a memorial inter falco square. Never mind that. A committee convened by parliament. Had already decided how the plinth should be felt. Never mind that it was supposed to be an equestrian statue in that the queen mother will not be remembered for riding horses. Never mind that no one from the royal family or any elected official had approached us the day after that came a double page spread headlined. All they taking the plinth alongside excerpts of articles. I had written several years ago. Taken out of context under the headline the full of champion gary. Once again the editorial writers were upon us. The saga of the empty plant is another example of the yawning gap between the metropolitan elite hijacking. This country. i'm the majority of ordinary people. Who simply want to reclaim britain as their own. The males quotes which truer than it dead imagine it called on people to reiten but precious few dead. No one was interested in having the queen. Mother interface choir. The campaign died sad and pathetic death. Luckily for me. It's on diet that. If there was a gap between anyone and the ordinary people of the country on this issue the daily mail was on the wrong side of it. This however was simply the most insistent attempts to find a human occupant for the plinth over the years. There have been request to put. David beckham bill morris. Mary see coal. Benny hill and poor. Gascoyne up there. None of these figures were particularly known for riding horses. Either but with each request. I got i would make the petitioner an offer if you can name those who occupy the other three plinths than the fourth is yours. Of course the plinth was not actually my gift. But that didn't matter. Because i do. I would never have to deliver. I knew the answer. Because i made it my business to the other..

"That when saying what's happening america's similar to what happens so. That's the cornerstone of all of this right. If any american jew wants to know what's happening in their country and the confusion surrounding antisemitism and anti zionism they need to do is look at the uk. We're forty percent of british reported considering leaving the country. Should jeremy been have been elected prime minister in twenty nineteen. How did that news not get to us. I mean if you're not tapped in to kind of international glitter national jewish news. You wouldn't know that. But that's a shocking statistic that's hundreds of thousands of jews potentially leaving the united kingdom. Should this person who styles himself as an advocate for the oppressed be elected to ten downing street. And what corbin is is is from two thousand five give or take two thousand. Nineteen there were or there was an excessive amount of behavior from members of the labor party. Whether they be high-ranking low ranking somewhere in the middle whether they be just individual candidates in random towns and cities whether they be in the house comments Who made ridiculous disparaging offensive insulting remarks about israel about zionism about jews in general associating them with capitalism with exploitation with with with wealth with greed which is of course. Something we're seeing here as well pretty classic Because that comes from the european left it comes from kind of his marxist trotskyist i know trotsky was a jew. I don't care of what was his name some. I forgot his name. He's have whatever whatever but it's like this column both. And what all of this. The reason why this was so excruciating and hard to confront is because the labor party postured itself as just being critical of israel just standing up for palestinians just holding the left flank on the israeli palestinian conflict. And actually. so there's there's a scholar in a sociologist who lives in the. Uk has his david hirsch and he wrote a book called contemporary left. Anti-semitism which is essentially just a amazingly thorough documentation of the labor party crisis in the sociology behind left anti-semitism and he dubbed this term called the livingston formulation and livingston. Formulation pertains to ken livingston. Who is the mayor of london from two thousand to two thousand and eight who made outrageous claims like his comrades in the labor party saying that the nazis colluded with zionists to the nineteen thirties. That israel was you know the the modern day nazi germany obsessed with this right that the jews of israel and the nazis were somehow correlated. He every time that he was called out or confronted on this on these comments. He would say. I was just criticizing israel so david hirsch writes in his book. Contemporary left. anti-semitism that when people on the left say things that are in no way shape or form. Criticism of israel do not constitute valid political against a sovereign state when they either demonized de-legitimize replied double standards to israel or when they make use of what a writer. Shannon moore calls the anti-semites triangle blood money and conspiracy when they use those things than when they are confronted. They'll say. I was just criticizing israel or to do two things. The first thing is to turn the debate into a deterrent. Turn the discussion into a debate on whether or not criticism of israel's antisemitic which by the way very few jews believe right so we've departed from what you just said was antisemitic to well. I don't agree with the settlements i don't agree with. Netanyahu agree with everything that israel does. So we forget about what was actually said. Whether people agree with settlements. Netanyahu agreed that criticizing israel isn't anti exactly all the time and then the yeah host of the podcast. This is important thing. The second thing in formulation does and the most important thing. Is it frames. The jew as acting in bad faith as trying to silence free speech as trying to hurt progressivism to tear down the left. It portrays the jew as like ultimate right wing reactionary. Who's just you know throwing around the word anti-semitism in order to smear and discredit people. And once that theory that jews who cry foul and who speak on anti-semitism we're actually just political agents their pawns of the israeli lobby. There could spur the ha's barrage trolls. Can you know. Once that conspiracy theory becomes institutionalized. It creates an extremely hostile environment on the left in leftist political circles. And that's exactly what we were saying. They're really bad right wing people. Exactly because they're they're not one of us you know they. They've been pushed outside of what david hirsch calls. The community of the good ones and juice speaks about anti-semitism their other they're zionists they're racist their support apartheid they support genocide. And which is why blake. I think you you were describing earlier. How movements that really have nothing to do with. Israel are taking on this anti israel agenda. It's because of this tribalisation of discourse where political discourse is now this. It's not a rational argument based on making sense of situations in analyzing it. It's just like postmodern tribal. You're either on my team or the other team. And so since people who defend israel the other team everybody on our team agrees you don't have to explain it or understand it and it's important that you brought up postmodern too because that's another huge component of this as well whereas people on the left because the jews have been constructed by critical race theory which is kind of a creature of postmodernism as you know white privileged powerful people it creates a justification that as long as you're on the left you can say anything you want about the jews no matter how insulting and bat shit crazy and it's portrayed as punching up right and if maju speaks out against it and says that was wrong is portrayed as punching down so this has and therefore if they're punching down there pushed once again out of this community of the good their other does.

"A for for many decades he he came to office At a very low point in new york city history the The the the murder rate and the crime rate was really out of control and there was a sense of Disarray on the streets. And you know giuliani who as i said he's things simplistically in in a very black and white way he Used a very heavy hand to combat the crime problem to sweep the streets and the it came at the expense of a lot of underprivileged people and at the expense of the black community where you know the crime rate was the highest and so was the police presence but the city experience plunging in crime the city became far more livable livable and as a result poor neighborhoods Flower in and took on economic vitality. And you again. The impact was global. I mean i remember in london. The left wing mayor of london time. Ken livingston greeting he's opposite number. Mayor guiliani and saying london has a huge amount to learn from you about politics. The phrase of the time. I mean it was a model that was followed around the world. Then nine eleven. So he's stock could not have been higher. I remember in two thousand. There was the prospect that we were going to see us race for the new york senate which was going to pit. Hillary clinton then outgoing first lady against rudy giuliani. That didn't happen. Tell us why that didn't happen. And why it explains. Why giuliani went a bit quiet for a few years. A few things happen on the first was the The exposure of his extramarital affair and then the kind of destruction of his marriage and a very public way and then he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. So that was kind of layered on on top of that. And the you know the combination of health problem and his Out of control you know public slash. Private problems led him to pull out of the race but in the years followed. We didn't see much again. Certainly in britain around the world that don't think he had the reputation again. He ran in two thousand and eight for the presidency. That didn't really go anywhere. I think that was seen as a bit of a mess. It was a disaster. He's i mean rudy. Giuliani had wanted to be president since he was a teenager is hold. Trajectory was focused on an eventual run for president and it was a bust. I mean he. He left the race without a single delegate and i think that was kind of a turning point in his life i will tell us why was a bust and then white was a turning point. Well you know middle. America was not as forgiving of giuliani's personal life. That's number one number two is he was just not as conservative as a republican party and so he favored abortion rights. He favored favored gay rights. And that is not where you know. The country's republican party was at that point so he entered with several strikes against him he turned out to be kind of Tone-deaf about the needs of the interest of The public i mean all he had was the nine eleven card that he played over and over When the public cared more about the economy and other things and then strategically. He made some very very bad choices. He kind of Decided to skip all the small states and By the time he entered the competitive primaries down the road John mccain was already solidified as a as the front runner and giuliani was an afterthought and you say it was a turning point in his career. I i mentioned tonight with a why you say that with the part of it was kind of ideological because he was seen as on the left of the republican party. Then been terms of as you've said abortion rights gay rights gun control even and then he pops up you know the trump period working for and at the side of yes a complicated figure but also one of the most right wing. Republicans is ever been. I know he. Trump's politics are complicated. We've got into that often on this pocus but just tell us why you think it was a turning point for four giuliani and in what direction he could have remained above. Partisan politics could have remained the statesman and instead he kinda through his lot in especially after the presidential race with With george w bush and dick cheney and the invasion of iraq and he just found a lot of kind of comfort Very strident partisan politics which his popularity and kind of the nine eleven halo fade a lot of money. I mean he may tens of millions of dollars kind of Using his nine eleven fame to get contracts with foreign countries and corporations not all of them so kinda virtuous and he was out of the political spotlight and that went on for many many years making a lot of money but fading in relevance politically speaking until donald trump came around and when donald trump ran for president he was he was outsider to politics. Most people in the republican party had chosen sides with the other candidates and giuliani tied his fortunes to trump and went trump. Got into trouble during the campaign for extramarital activities. Giuliani was one of the few people would go on television and defend him and trump became kind of his meal. Ticket and giuliani adjusted his politics. Accordingly we demand like donald trump. Who's got a positive view. Let's fix get things on the right track. Let's get judy good jobs for everybody. And i think that message of inclusion is gonna be a very helpful antidote to the way we've been divided over the last eight years and so that's you'll use the phrase meal ticket. I mean the skeptical view was he doesn't like trump. he doesn't respect trump. He's doing this just to still get books on cnn and on fox just to still be on tv and to still be relevant. Was that too harsh. Well i you know. I think that probably that. That was the case. When i started out with trump. I think there was just a very kind of opportunistic. Thinking there But you know once he was in for a dime he was in for a dollar and he became a real true believer when someone wants something. They can talk themselves into anything. And i think that's what we saw. Giuliani at this. Point is a true believer in trump. The all think about it is. It didn't really get what he wanted. He wanted to be president. We know that he surely would have wanted a big job. Secretary of state or even attorney general. He didn't get that he just was kind of donald. Trump's fixer it. Well he could have been the attorney general. Any trump was offering him. Many many jobs giuliani held out for secretary of state and they even considered him for that job. But his tangle of foreign Private dealings financial entanglements scared them off. They didn't think that he could win. Congressional approval and then he ended up kind of nowhere until trump got into trouble with ukraine and then called. Giuliani is kind of his His picture and we'll talk about that is he was such a successful prosecutor for so long. Surely he knew that in talking openly. About what you've been doing in ukraine that he was gonna get find himself facing some big questions from just the kind of people who used to work for him rudy giuliani.

"I went to the audience. Twenty six years a black left wing columnist for much of it. So i'm used to taking fact i might have just drawn a huge target on my back but nothing prepared me during that time for the flag. Talk not about my cullens about immigration or racism or white people but about a statute and actually even more than that the absence of a statute the place with the missing statue that with caused gary young so much grief was the fourth plant in london's trafalgar square. It was originally intended to hold an equestrian statue like the three others surrounding nelson's column but a lack of funds left empty for a hundred and fifty years then in two thousand and one london mayor. Ken livingston asked gary to join a committee. That would choose how to fill the space firms committee. Can i just ask why you are asked to be on this committee i mean. Do you have expertise in equestrian stockton question. I don't have done of any expertise in question statues and this is where we went picking up any questions that cheese because the parliament had already decided that protecting works. Now we'll go on this plan but someone so keen on the modern are only plan when in two thousand and two. the queen. mother died by ben. Gary was chairing the committee and someone suggested she take the spot. The call from the daily mail. Saying cream moment i thought was really odd question. I said no. Mp has doubts snub member of the royal family's styles and if they do we'll tell them and you know you put the phone down. I'll call you ask if you enough cement better up to the daily mail. I started question after answer to you so never quote anything anything. Because i didn't say yes. I didn't say now i kinda said we'll have a year the next day. The daily mail published a front page banner launching a campaign for the statue to be erected. I'm inside that was an editorial asking whether a committee with really respond to the national mood in a memorial to fag squat on. It was the beginning of me being a bit of a hate figure. South things like the daily mail can reveal. The gary nunn was once a trotskyist. Reveal that because i wrote a three thousand were a piece in the guardian code memoirs of a teenage trot and the second hate said managed to get a picture of me so i can say like. He's black and like went for even more of a taking. The plinth was double page. Spread headline salts of chairman. Gerry detecting microbes have context. The saga of the mt is visit. Example of a yawning gap between the metropolitan the league hijackings country and a majority of ordinary people. Simply to require masks out now. I'm very familiar language to today. Only thing that saves the main things thank actually was that most people didn't want the mcqueen plans but i realized after in some of the queen mother was that she was the fast i pronounce. David beckham benny hill or poor. Gascoyne bill morris. Some of them are like and some of them. I didn't but i would say to people was if you can name. Who's on the other three plants. You can have the fourth now facial. That wasn't shape. They can have had the full because he was in the market but actually did mattis. I knew that they would know. Sometimes i could get one sometimes. But usually i couldn't get any of them and then i would say why would you wanna put somebody else up to be for dalton. This is obviously not a good way to remember people these days. Gary is a professor at manchester university and this month a year since a black lives matter protests brought down the figure of edward colston in bristol. He's been thinking about statues again from the guardian. I'm initiative astana today in focus.

You've been studying. The impact of the black lives matter movement on statues and memorials in countries across the world. I guess in britain a key turning point in this story came exactly a year ago today on the seventh of june twenty twenty. Tell me what happened.

Nobody's GonNa say that because they're all narrow happy and they're all on the gravy train so yeah since Snowbo- hundred gotten convince you this story I think I I didn't see anyone in there that he was kind of trying to get something because he's already essentially have the vote he's got wanted. Yes I was trying to find an example from the speech he gave just before the election but he kind of toned it down. He's not it doesn't actually say why because he could promise stuff he doesn't say your your great. You know your your be. I will do everything you need. So this is kind of off to the facts. This is what he said this before the election then he would have been appealing to them to get something out of them. What he's doing is more. Maybe is kind of switching. Some sort of collective guilt on the part of the. Now what am I saying no? He's so yeah but yeah it's kind of because he's after the fact he's calm not yelling and he's almost exactly saying you know. I. I don't even really expect you to vote for Labor for a reason. Yeah Yeah so yeah thanks very much. Kabar not doing anything you want. Yeah so the second example then is so. This is a couple of instances cerberus in our car last summer. During the extension rebellion. Climate activists demonstrations. That were going on in London. Boris was trying to get to the offices. The Daily Telegraph. Where Charles Moore was launching the latest in his Margaret Thatcher? Biography series and. He was held up from getting there in time and was disparaging to the audience of Daily. Telegraph grandees about the climate activists. And he's he's so what we're going to hear now is Boris. And then it's followed by Boris his Dad Stanley Johnson. Who is talking to the very activists disparaging about buying team? Didn't want me to come to this event tonight. Because they said that there were some uncooperative cross. T.'s and protesters of all kinds littering the road. And we're way late in the streets as I'm sure we will be by importunate nose ring to read lot. Climate change protesters and the best thing possible for the education of the denizens of those heaving smelling beaver wax that now Trafalgar Square and an Hyde Park and the rest of the best thing for them will be to stop blocking the traffic. And buy a copy of Charles's magnificent. I wear that badge with pride is one of the nicest things being said about remember longtime non-cooperative crusty absolutely superb. Do they taste good? That's my thought. I think they do look on this point on this point of language. You gotta understand that. Sometimes you need to get a point across now at this particular point was actually saying that he'd be in a bit late for Charles. Moore's book launch and he worked Satanical off Charles Bobek Satanic off. He doesn't expect people be late for each other's book launches anyway but the real point party said the real point part of Said was. He absolutely supported the objective. The absolutely didn't say that so now I only do his private office. Warning against these things is own blood. Family is kind of apologizing on behalf of him for using such language so a bit. Like trump is a failed all four stand up comic in all that all that Eton and Cambridge Education has given him a large dictionary of insults. String together in a very at least takes raven so since that of trump's saying tired old hacky all stay at least as imaginative. Cooling uncooperative. Cross Ross strolling polling. It's entertaining. Yes so I think I think in order to get the uncooperative crosses to bear little more cooperative and all and almost kind of later on the the thing is he in that speech Stanley Johnson equates the climate activism with Tory policy and Boris Johnson. Actually in the same speech the there's a bit more of it. That came before that he was saying. He Says Thatcher was got there before aggressive. Thunder did so they kind of saying yet do we? We're not he's not insulting you because you are really at the heart of conservative policies. Tried to get them on the side by by a bit like they call themselves the elite where we must be the Super League he's called. You uncooperative crusty while I would wear that badge with pride and to get you on to get on the side basically and to defuse the situation. Because Boris doesn't give a shit about he does he says seems to be working and then joins in goes way as well that day. That's the worst thing that when people cheer cheer along with just makes you appear that you're not really listening. Your way ahead tried to get to the you got. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. Yeah cheer there. Yeah yeah shoot. I thought arose in the world is e. Took a walk. Gloria Kinda with will survive was inspired by that one. 'cause I saw that she posted a short video and take talk of ourselves. Washing our hands. To counteract corona virus to the singing the chorus of I will survive long enough to wash your hands. Yeah Yeah so good and there is also survived by washing your hands else yeah so in the fallacy in the wild. We'd like to talk about the week from a political perspective and this week our first example is from an old lorry Al ad. I use the most expensive hair color in the world preference by Laurie. How it's not that I care about money and said I care about my hair. It's not just the color I expect. Grey Colour. What's worth more to me is the way my hair feels smooth and silky but with body feels good. It's my neck. Actually I don't mind spending more Florio because I'm worth it. Go because you over here because this is where the Because on with which later turned into. Because you'll you'll worth it. Started to even more flattery. Exactly yeah and and it was. It was because I'm worth it for quite a while. And then one of the spokes models that they had doing their ants decided that she didn't feel comfortable saying I'm because I'm wet and withdraw say because you'll That works and then it became. That became this legend. And yeah absolutely is the fields. Flattery is saying. I'm Laurie is one of the more expensive brands anymore. But when it when it was it was saying yes you. You should have that. You should buy this. Not because it's great or because it will make your head Nice. Because y'all thank you. Great person you to seth you have this more. Wouldn't you have? Yeah and if you don't have a. Are you saying that you'll not worth it? Yeah Yeah what was the name of the Mile Cologne Denim or something like that?

You just turn the lights off wouldn't you this is the complete opposite of everything that she has made made that she has done to make sure that institution survives in Britain which is just a stay away from this shit and the idea that it would just be brought right into a home in that way is problematic to put this if he asks it does she. They have to say that she doesn't have to do anything. She's fucking queens either but I mean but constitutionally she would be the most of it would be very surprising if she didn't go with what the prime minister was. Yes we have a very special guest this week. Lock down your aerial because we're joined by wests treating and Labour M._p.. For Alfred North indefatigable campaigner for people's votes and doggedly independent thinker whose been announced as disloyal by Ken Livingston and treacherous by lend mcklusky so he's coming to the right place and judge someone by their enemies and I'm I'm company. We know so when you said you do the show. You thought it was going to be a quiet well no weeks a quiet now relative normal week now. We've got labor policy change not so long ago there was talk of waiting to conference <hes> what what do you think was the key factor that made this decision and made it happen now. Yes definitely been an eventful week both in terms of the Labour party's position but also the extent to which and take him by surprise with the monumental votes. We had this week in the victories. We had this week on the Labor Party Front. I mean I think the the truth is that the pressure on Jeremy Corbyn and the people around him was overwhelming because the Labor Party is at its heart a pro remain party. It's passionately pro a European party and that's reflected not just in our membership our M._p.'s but also our voters and we saw the European elections what happens when the Labor Party tries to sit on its fence and look both ways it wasn't just the voters is abandoned us in significant numbers and Jeremy Corbyn is aided the revival of the Liberal Democrats for me. The most damning thing was that four in ten Labor Party members didn't vote Labor and I think that sends a really powerful message to the leadership the party the it doesn't matter what your instincts are what you want to do. The Labor Party is a pro European party and if you believe in as Jeremy Corbyn says he does a Democratic member party then you've got to listen to your members is and people voted with their feet. We can't afford for that to happen again and I think in the end persistent stubbornness of good old fashioned politics one through and ultimately we've ended up in a position whereby between now in the autumn the thirty first type deadline the Labor Party will be pushing for a public vote on any deal and making it clear that we would campaign for a main which is a massive victory for People Power the Party membership and also vindication of those labor the voters frankly who didn't vote Labour European elections they gave us a bloody nose and it worked..

"Still uglier Daniele pellet is managing editor at the institute for war and peace reporting and former foreign editor of the Jewish chronicle Daniele first of all to the extent that it's possible to sum it up. What has been occurring with the labor party says obviously, an ongoing thing, but it has flared up again that's been a combination of a couple of years of repeat? Anti semitism scoundrels, but the most recent trigger was the revelation that Jeremy Kuban commented apparently favorably on a Facebook post about a clearly antisemitic mural this happened a few years ago, but it's been brought up now and the Jewish community the organized Jewish community said they'd had enough and they organized a protest outside parliament, which is pretty unprecedented move who especially Anglo Jewish community to do because the fairly quiet reasonable working behind the scenes kind of people and things have escalated since then I mean, it is an extraordinary sequence of events in an extraordinary place to have ended up for all sorts of reasons. But we're talking about a political party that was leading to a general election by Jewish leader. As recently as twenty fifteen what has changed in the labor party. Well, I think it's very straightforward. There's always been a section of far left politics that have votes into this world view that Jews are white privilege. And imperialist forces quite often. Antisemitism is only possible on on the far. Right. And certainly obsessed with a kind of Middle East politics that sees Israel as the ultimate evil. And also currently sees Assad is an anti-imperialist is Russia is nineteen Perez and Iran too. So that kind of trend was always that. But I think with the election of Kuban is leader, it's become mainstream. It's become legitimized. And this is brought out into the all kinds of extremely unpleasant schools, which has made many Jewish people. I'm not just Jewish. People hugely alarmed the has become a mantra among the visitors anti-israeli left in particular that they are being smeared as anti Semites every time, they criticize Israel. But is there in fact, possibly arguably something to that criticism? If you are somebody who of all the injustices in the world has decided to seize. Upon Israel to the exclusion of all other concerns is it not worth occasionally asking people why you have picked out VAT country in particular. I I'm not gonna ask people to equally condemn awful of oppression. I mean, that's you can fix Ican fixate on on Israel, even without being an anti Semite. And it's very perfectly possible to support the rights of Palestinians to advocate for them to not be supporter of Zionism and not be anti Semite shouldn't be that difficult. It really shouldn't. I know plenty of people he manage it. But the idea that this is a smear. I think is the most helpful part of it because it's hard to think of another minority group that would have their physicians belittled in this way. And of course, there have been very vociferous Jewish voters of Kuban who've agreed with that and said, this is a smear, and this is just a criticism of Israel. But you know, they do have a saying about Jesus that you have to. Geez. You have three opinions. We don't all agree on this. But the overwhelming. Majority. I think increasingly traumatized by this in a country where anti semitism has not been a problem. Really hasn't been a problem. I have to say in my entire life. I've only ever experienced it in the context of being a journalist writing right Israel-Palestine. That's the only place and you see on the left are not the only place where it's come up for me. So why do you think it has erupted especially among the labor party in the last few years because it would be absurd to pretend that it was never there. And this is only something that has arrived out of the clear blue sky since Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the labour party grizzlies, just his faction of the party, which after years of being ignored marginalized, even ridiculed. Suddenly feels like now is the moment, and they can say any old thing may like, and there will be no consequences. I think that's been very true. I mean, Ken Livingston, for instance, is still a member of the labor party, which seems extraordinary to me. There's been a whole host of complaints that haven't been acted on. People feel empowered really to say what?.

"Look into coffeehouse shots spectators daily. Poltics podcast is the conservative party dour and joyless. That was the diagnosis of Ruth Davidson leader of Scottish stories at launch of a new think tank in Westminster last night. I'm prisoners joined by Katie balls and James for Saif. All three of us were at the events. Katie. We know when Ruth Davidson intends to be mischievous and she even flagged it up. She proceeded her to Mark saying, I knew I'm going to be a bit controversial now. So to what extent was leader of Scottish conservatives criticizing the leader of the English or the UK conservatives? Yeah, served as an apologized advance and said, oh, now I promised. I wasn't gonna commit news, but here I go anyway to some slight eyebrows raising from some attendance in the room. She then proceeded to say that the current Tories and perhaps particularly the Tories in England have problem by Mitch. They seem quite pessimistic and she's the word Darah. Stead because that where does that she more of a Scottish term? Maybe she could get away with saying we're doing, do. Asian. And say, agreement, evil, we all knew it. It means, and by the way, it's all a bit too accurate jeans because this time last year to resume was being described as a bit glum bucket by Quentin. Let's Daily Mail and she is glum is the may board is this criticism of Theresa May. Style trees is not a Reaganite, sunny, optimistic conservative. She wouldn't raise may talks about technology. She always immediately move on talking about the dangers of internet and how social media allows always terrorist videos to be hosted on there and stuff. So she's not unnaturally positive vigor. And I think that one of the things that you're gonna see is the Tory party. There's always been one of the Tory modernisers humi- which is you've got to see positive up beat about the future. You've got to think that the you're to give strong belief that the country's best as our head of it to resume as naturally not like that. She's going to cautious person. I'd be also David Cameron Theresa May never looks like he's reveling. In the job of being permanent servants was the debut Cameron? He's I think he's just a guy. He's enjoying being prominence that you don't get that impression from Theresa May. We'll know that she's tortured by. She would have stood down when you bundle the election, but you stay one hundred percents of juicy, very noble vertu do it, but there's no doubt that this is kind of agony for her agony which is coming across Katie and not just a facing party in the way that is quite glum. But if you look at the Tories campaigning tends to be very negative every single time as been version of projects, fear whether it was in this course referendum with last last general election Labor's is going to do wins. It all seems conservatives have been able to say is bad things about belieber party, a not positive things about conservatism. So do you think that was Ruth Davidson overall message? I think that was part for message, and it was also echoed by Michael gave the tear them gave speeches that event Gouves in Cuenca were so welded us. But we message was lightly sniping at the same time as open saying, look, this conservatives don't say, you can't win. Run younger voters. We've managed to your dates and things impossible. Then my g-o-v took to the stage and he made a few choice comparisons. I think hindsight might not be in the right ones. He compared himself in reef and his jested. They were new dynamic GIO. There's lots of even the conservative party really think they are to the point that perhaps when glum buckets might leave at some point, they would like to see Davidson go on a joint ticket. The comparison he made was that they were like Tina ten and Turner yet. He said, well, James, I mean, I, I went to ask you what you think of 'em, Tina Turner's career here, but we do know that was referenced by the on, say, in the sermon, Amazon, drunken love, and jet apologize for it. So toxic was very mention of like, so do you think Michael go was being a bit risque brooking circumstances of oyster. Interesting contrast between roof Davidson. Michael laws night, which is roof Davidson. You know, I was up near St. themes days in how to kind of Catholic typed out speech that she was delivering from an everything was clearly in that even the can of supposedly fo- all my word I said, I wouldn't make news, but I'm going to bit. Mago was just winning the whole of his head and you. Houses as case it didn't didn't choose the comparison. I also. These interesting because you see here there is going to meeting ritual field of last night because there is a question about whether the modernizing wings of two reports that were on different soins, not all of which was on one side of the Brexit campaign. Hence having both roof Davidson, Michael Novak. Can they come together in the next door issue contest to back kind of one candidate or kind of post Brexit agenda gyms didn't bring back memories to you. Danny Finkelstein giving introduction, Michael felt like the launch of policy exchange or launch of some kind of Cameron modernizers. I was at felt more at the launch of seachange which was the political of explicitly party political wing of politics change. It felt very much like an active attempt to kind of grab and reshape the Tory party, right? No kitty, how many of you will jerrycan were in that room last night about three hundred, four hundred as very hot ram, and it was very full. And the big question, this thing tanks when everybody leaves, when the last of the worm white wine is drunk, what is left and in the case of onwards was is the rapper at us. You know, I think the positive message you take away from that is basically that this lots of tour is he wanted to more positive for the Tory demand for yet. And also the fact that were there at one of them told me this isn't happening within our own party. Right now. We can start a conversation while to resume as the spell of death over the whole apparatus. So we need to take a conversation at size. I think that was one of the takeaways. There was a great appetite to have discussions that are current. Verboten under the current leadership? Exactly. And I think that's the most positive because the rest really is what they come up with an speaking to oversee involved in this and like, well, now comes the tricky, but we've had the party. We need to come up with some policies or policy ideas that really detect these problems. But obviously the big who go news today isn't his speech to a thing last night, but it is actually an impetus accuser, his attack on wood burning stoves, which I think some people in this room have very strong views on. I have to say, right, this is completely outrageous. I acquired one of these wonderful serves a couple of years ago and it doesn't single best thing I've ever bought. I spent hours gazing into his glass green in winter. Just feels like you're an Shelly somewhere a what is the problem? You burn a few. We hung so woods and now my who says he wants to crack down on it. But if you look at the small print, you will see that is bark is worse than this bite. I think I'm right in saying he wants to give. Counsels the power to declare certain days to be smoke free days, which probably look at the amount of smoke really is just another living ones. Burning Westwood, doesn't he? Yeah, burns wet. Where'd you get it from academy? They can deliver it to you. Far cry. It's a small pleasures in life. I didn't know this conservative government seems at Termine to take away every last pleasure. There is left in life, but nobody would take away my wood-burning stove give left to come in. Extinguish it himself. Now talking about problems, James, John Burke who is still mired in his. He's finally offered some clarity as to what he said about leader of the house and realism. Yeah, he's missing. He used the word stupid. He says he was purely stupid about the way the government has handle business, but I put it was an extraordinarily graceless performance from John burqa debate stand up at MIT, you've called the leader of a house, Jeep it, but not to apologize is quite remarkable, but also you can tell what it strategy is here because he then turned into a speech about how you as always not the palm against the executive, even if upsets people offals feathers. It was always the dome wreck to peel labour benches, not to allow the Tories to unseat him. But if you, if you look at. Andrew lead soms relatively pretty dignified response in the circumstance. It's clear that this is not wash onto the bridge yet there is Angie kept took him out, you know how people must be true of civility. Dignity, including soft, which was pretty obvious allusion to. Gatien's against your burqa. I've John Burke is safe as long as the labor party is prepared to tobacco central, but I think it is becoming home or hall of these because it was going to double standard issue emerging when is yeah. Also people neighbors who all his is most fervent. Defenders, all people who go most apoplexy tick. If anyone else he was first elected to parliament as a conservative was caught using the language that burqas being allegedly court using and Katie will John Burke who hangs onto his position. Ken Livingston has abandoned his labor party membership. Yes can is out of the labor party to the joy of many labor MP's. But I think where you get to situation where no one is that happy as he wasn't forced out, he resigned. He chose to go zone accord and lots of people's fear that given that hit the problems with his comments, an anti semitism rive his penchant for saying, hit their anytime. He goes on like radio, television, patch down the street. Think people perhaps the leadership but are taken out by not to make that happen, and they didn't. So lots of people in the labor party of relieved. This has happened, but day may take. Take it as a sign that the leadership is taking control of the situation. Thanks very much for listening.
