We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times.

It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty.

It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that.

Loved Labours won: landslide in New Zealand

"This weekend New Zealand's Labour Party swept to a fairy-tale victory stunned. Prime Minister. Justin. The are dern beamed as a rapturous crowd applauded beginning her speech with a thankful molly reading. In. In tongue it Athena what? dern promised a big tent kind of administration. For every New Zealand has never been so important more than it has been now. We living in an increasingly polarized world a place where more and more people have lost the ability to see one. Another's point of view having come in for criticism during the campaign on failing to address housing shortages and poverty. She acknowledged there were difficulties ahead. Over the next three years. There is much to do. We will build back better from the covert crisis. Stronger. With an answer to the mini challenges New Zealand. Already faced. Challenges or no the scale of the win came as a surprise even to her supporters. The easiest way of describing is that it was unparalleled in modern history. I wonder why it had Austrailia and correspondent say the Labor Party which has just endured dance policy one, forty, nine percent of the and that was compared to nearly twenty seven percent for the main opposition, which is called the national policy, which is conservative that is the best result Labor's result for any policy since the fifties and it gives it a majority of seats in parliament, and that is the first time that any he's been. Able to govern on its own underneath. Zealand. System of proportional representation which has been in place since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, they were winning in both provincial rural conservative strongholds, ondon rich city areas, and to give sense New Zealanders vote for both the preferred party and an MP on their ballots and labor top the preferred party votes in sixty eight of its seventy constituencies really astounding result for them and what was the the campaign like De Campaign was focused on pretty much only one subject which was the government's response to the coronavirus. It was really a referendum on how the government and I think in voters is particularly prime minister has responded to the virus that response was to shut down the borders, I to China, and then to the rest of the world and then to rally support. For, what was a very, very strict lockdown in New Zealand at the beginning of the pandemic and say, Bara brief surges pretty much. Succeeded I. Need Twenty Five people have died and that was really what the campaign focus on the fact that life has been able to return and roughly to normal people are eating out people cramming into restaurants and their normal numbers. Forty six thousand people watching rugby match against Australia, this weekend. So the campaign was very much focused on that response and the opposition kind of found it quite difficult. See Find Ground on which to oppose the government, and so the scale of that result then is just a reflection of how satisfied everyone has been with the response to the pandemic. That is the singular issue of its left remembering that before the pandemic hits. Labor a was looking the polls. The suggesting that Labor was on track to lose. This election would have been a one term government, which is not very common in New Zealand central a being. Overseas particularly, for the way that she responded to the Christ church terrorist attacks, they were much last year when these two mosques were attacked by a white supremacist and she was obviously hailed. The way she united New Zealand does after that and staunchly defended immigrants but adulation wasn't really reflected back at home until the pandemic has. So was this a vote for her or a vote for the Party and it's I think it's got to be with her and not a great deal to do with the Party and its policies. So it was a campaign that was thin on policy on both sides update from national and Labour but I think it was a set of referendum on the prime minister's response. To the coronavirus even historisches appointment submit that she's a very gifted communicator particularly in times of crisis and young people particularly look to her. She has a kind of unpretentious approachability that I think that a lot of Kiwis light and political analysts in New Zealand will say that it's very much a politics of personality though she wasn't always popular home as she was overseas. I, think that Kiwis do derive a kind of sense of pride from hug label standing as well. So in a way that has served her well at home. Speaking to damage he said that her brilliant lies in the way she plays into their sense of exceptionalism. In key, we always liked to think that set apart by more than their geography and they punch above that waits. But what about apart from the personality and crisis management and so on. What about sort of kitchen table politics? This is. Just. On the Labor government comes in for a lot of criticism because when she came to power in two thousand seventeen. Labor was making a lot of very lofty promises to do things like reduce child poverty it was going to end homelessness in New Zealand. It was going to build one hundred thousand affordable houses in ten years. Of generally make New Zealand to Faira Besser country and it's pretty much failed to deliver on every single one of those things. The Prime Minister's critics point out that almost counts of poverty and social inequality museum and actually heading quits. Houses are increasing at the moment in New Zealand increasing through the crisis. So this is a big big criticism of her detractors that she is a great at moving motivational speeches, but quite a poor Administra- certain hasn't actually got much done. So that might explain why this time around the world kind of such lofty promises it was rather more timid. But. She's still got a strong base of support is on the left who are GonNa be expecting her to do a lot more particularly now she's not in. She's she's not having to form a coalition particularly now that she can govern on her own and so to your mind the the big difference then between the first term and this coming second term is that she that Labour will be governing alone. Is the big difference with governing Elaine comes a lot more responsibility. There is still a chance that Labor form some kind of coalition with the Greens will they. They don't need. Them might be handy have degrees inside the government say they're not handling the sidelines said that could either be a formal coalition or a more informal arrangement in which the Greens folks with Labor early onset issues. So a much stronger position on a lot more pressure within this time around. But what about fulfilling all those promises in light of the economic situation? I mean new. Zealand certainly must have suffered economically from the pandemic if not quite so much as elsewhere in terms of the human cost, it is in a recession. Now the economy is going to contract by about six percent. This year unemployment is rising the wage subsidy that is coming off. So Wild New Zealand has done very well at keeping the virus out there going to be lots more questions about what that has caused it, and how it is going to drive a recovery how it's going to get out of that mess. The Prime Minister says that there is a plan for recovery which includes things like building lots of roads but to her pregnancy looks quite incremental. They out there in no big plans for tax reform for example of just third some income tax hikes. But only on the talk to percent of workers say theoretically might think that with such strong majority, they pressure more radical agenda but there are many people in New Zealand see that. So to be so popular, you've got to be fairly uncontroversial owner. Thank you very much for joining us. Thanks, Jason.

Has Scott Morrison spent too much?

Has Scott Morrison spent too much?

"Me. If you've already heard me mention this but one of my favorite quotes during the covid crosses a pdf the guardian. This is the British lift wing newspaper. Now, this was the heart of the coronavirus crisis. It would have been light much quote just as there are no atheists on a sinking ship, there are no free marketeers during a pandemic. Now, the author of that apt quote Jonathan Freedland, he was referring to the audio logical revolution within the British conservative. Party. Now, according to Freedland Boris Johnson's his have defied four decades of thatcherism small-state free-market, thinking I to spend staggering amounts of money and then subsidizing the wages of workers. Could the same thing be said about Australia's Liberal Party they're the party of Howard and Costello now embraces big-spending high deficit government interventionism. And is a permanent state of affairs poor kilis editor at large of the Australian US pipe and Judas Brit is emeritus professor of politics at Latrobe University poll judy welcome back to the show. Hristo Paul, you've written to calms about this subject in the past week, summarize your faces. Will Martha is that all parties and all governments have to respond to the times in which they find themselves on display in Australia. Now we face an extraordinary economic crisis and the response reveals the nature of Scott Morrison, his prime minister and the Mars and government. So Morrison, not responding as Liberal Party progressive or is it Liberal Party conservative? He doesn't see himself in those terms his responses pragmatic selects able and practical. He's not inhibited by former policy and audio logical icons of the Liberal Party. Say What we say is the government has abandoned the long-term syllabus aspirations. It's A. Big Spending government it's a government government intervention focused on Keynesian demand management. It does however on the Liberal Party tradition of tax cuts will see next week. So it's prepared to regulate or deregulate according to the situation according to what's required. So to sum up say that Morrison wants to be defined by results and outcomes not philosophical principle. Okay. You mentioned the tax cuts leaving that aside traditional liberal governments are about balancing the books Paul, how much an as do you think aries in the Liberal Party about in the parliament and outside about these handouts to preserve jobs and livelihoods? Are. I. Don't think there's much on these at all OPTIMA and Tom. and. A couple of reasons for this if there is to be on, he's He's will come through the down the track, but essentially what's happening here is to govern is following the Orthodoxy or what you might call the new Orthodoxy in terms of meeting the financial and economic crisis. So roller response is sort of radical. It's also conventional. The official family is working together very closely. The Treasury the Reserve Bank, what the government is doing is essentially supported by private-sector economists. It's in law and with Patrick amended by the VCD and the IMF not the cabinet is very nodded, the Prime Minister and the treasurer are working very closely together so far the results look good. I think the Overwhelming sentiment on the back benches. Support, the government strategy in the hope that this gives individual employees, the chance of actually being reelected and my will give the government the chance of being reelected. So the reinvention of Australian liberalism is on full display with this budget judith break you agree with Paul Kelly about the the audio logical significance of these changes but actually think the government had much choice in that sense I do think we can see something audio logical preferences in a couple of the policies poor mentioned the tax cuts they've chosen tax cuts over for example, committing to a permanent increase in new act now co Job Seca. They've also, for example, if we look at the way, they wanted to stimulate the housing market. They've gone for giving money to individual owners rather than, for example, embarking on a social housing project. So I think in some of the means, we can still see some of the ideological preferences of the Patty. One of the things I've wondered when I've been watching the events unfold. If Labor had won the last election was in government with the Liberals have supported the same levels of spending or would they have if you like stayed in the sort of ideological bunker bean and attacked the blow out of the deficit? I mean, it's a hypothetical. In some ways I think we've been very lucky that it's been the liberals and the coalition in government because they can sense being able to Ghana much more support. I, think than I have been able to do for the same levels of spending but isn't cameras response to the COVID crosses more consistent with other Western governments during the pandemic Judy. Yes that's what I think. I had much option but the question is if the coalition of being opposition, would they have supported a Labor government going? You've written a lot about this have many many decades about when orthodoxies or overturned. It's usually bipartisan is that you'll since if the coalition cypher argument's sake wherein opposition I would have gone along with this big spending interventionism. Look are essentially agree with what Judy's said about this I think in a sense we're. Fortunate, if you liked that the coalition's in government because it's taken all the big spending decisions. and. Lay has been prepared to go along with back. In fact, it's argued that there should be even more spending. So in that sense, we've had a broad degree of thought-out ship within the economic framework. It is hot the typical of course to tron speculate about what would have happened if alive had been in office doing this but I do think that the coalition in opposition would have been tempted to make caught a lot of criticisms and to suggest that the spending had gone too far. There's a big difference for party thing in government managing across and being an opposition. Cape with this theme of a political realignment among center right parties around the Western world. If you think about Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen, he tapped into widespread anxieties. America's rust belt. What can class constituencies? Boris Johnson showed last December, he resonated with traditional British Library voters in the Midlands and northern England. Judy. Do you think that Morrison in a wise doing the same thing here in Australia? Now, I think they're very different sorts of crises. I mean the pandemic is an external. Crisis, it's not being caused by politics in any way it's not back nationalism versus globalism or any of those things, and so I don't agree with that. I agree with what Paul was saying earlier that Morrison's shown himself to be pragmatic and quick footed in this and I think we're lucky for that. But I I don't think that this lines up with bricks and with trump's appeal to the rest spilled poor Kelly. Well I think conservatism is changing if you look at. America Britain Australia and there's not a dopey getting very significant changes into servitude. Thought. Different changes argued very strongly that there are very substantial differences between Donald Trump and Scott Morrison. I think people who argue that. Morrison is a pilot version of DONALD TRUMP MAUREEN DOWD in the New York Times by the way, but go on. I think. I think turned him mentally misunderstand the situation I. Think the change in conservatism is very dramatic in the United States. If you'd like because we've got the transition from Ronald, Reagan who a generation ago was the great conservative champion, and now we have Donald Trump, who if you lock is a populist conservative? And that transformation is simply enormous install ending content I mean trump violates all the virtues of conservatism in terms of restraint prudence disciplined respect. Regard for the political system, he thrives on division. So he likes all the traditional conservative norms, and then when looks at his policies. Well he's sabotage the global trading system. He's an arch protectionist. He's engaged in this trade war with China he's appraised dictators and suspicious about. So I guess one of the Fundamental Christians here is the extent to which trump is an aberration. And the extent to which post trump American concert is we'll have to try and create a new position cognisant of the damage that trump has done to the traditional Republican Party

Interview with Former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull

"Interview I started off by asking Malcolm Turnbull. Why he's so interested in Cyber Security and here's what he had to say. Well, it was clearly it's clearly the challenges of his sleigh very real a I guess the question is, why was I personally interested in it? Well, I've always had a big interest in. Networks computing I'm not a you know. On. Climb to have any technical skills. But I ask a lot of questions and try to understand things pretty well, and I've got a conceptual understanding of the challenges facing. I. Took the view that we needed to become. Much, much more alert to cybersecurity challenge I wanted to get Assad is security industry going strike on that was said there was a hall innovation agenda The behind the cybersecurity strategy of twenty six. But. I also wanted to reach out and Mike show the public understood the issue and that business understood the issue because you know it's the point that Rob Joyce might to you in your Hud cast with him. You know the dies win signals. Intelligence organizations could regard the job as being limited only to government is really I've I mean everybody everybody is site connected the attack victis ubiquitous, right? So you've gotta Mike or that everybody. Is maintaining a high level of cybersecurity awareness. My concern was and I think snowden was a very good example of this is a lot of senior leadership even in an organization like the Ns cy would clearly not sufficiently aware. Of who had a systems? Administrator acts level access where data was actually stored You know where it was mirrored probably more relevantly. So there's a there's just it just needed to get a lot more. Level of awareness you know there's a lot of. and. I would still be there today but you know I remember five or six or seven years ago you know just reflecting on how many lodge industrial businesses some in the tech. Telecom. Tech area. Others. Grittier. Industrial, businesses. Would have a lot of machines connected one way or another to the Internet where the user ID was Admin in the password was one, two, three, four, zero. I think I think sadly, we are still somewhat in the same place like things are improving, but it's it's a shocker and you're right people didn't necessarily aware that things were quite as bad as they were Nah, and so I think that so so that's that's why I wanted to take it on and I had got I've learned a lot about network security from paypal the ISD over the years and also from Mike Galvin you're not who I think I mentioned in the in my book in the chapter on the NBN mock was a the guy that had been in charge of the security bought had was had been at that time is like twenty thirteen was in charge of the rollout of the broadband, they fixed line. were, which doing you know as as we ended up doing multi technology program I didn't use didn't use. I see as far as me but they were certainly doing a lot of fob at the. and so I spent a lot of time with mark understanding the. The characteristics of that top of network and the various risks and y you can mitigate. while. I'm very glad you brought that up because you describe in your book that that Mike had had sort of. He had you convinced that it was a risk strategy to use high risk? Vendors at the edge of the NBA now, of course, your. Not, in government at this point and the Labor government, the then Labor government had announced that it would Ben- Hawaii from participating.

There are a number of different environments in which the system to black holes could formed and the disc of guests around supermassive black hole is one of them.

"People across the UK joined in a round of applause on Sunday to mark the seventy second anniversary of the free to use National Health Service one of the country's most cherished institutions, the reverence with which it is held has been bolstered this year during what is being Europe's deadliest corona virus outbreaks though the UK as a whole has a confirmed virus death toll of forty, four, thousand, two, hundred, twenty, the third highest in the world behind the United States and Brazil the chess and everyone who works within it in whatever capacity have been lauded for their work and care. Created by the Labor government after World War Two, in nineteen, forty, eight by bringing together the nation's disparate health institutions, the NHS's founding principles have never changed funded by everyone through the tax system. It provides free healthcare to any UK resident when needed. Prince Charles said the NHS that been through the most testing time in its history, and it was right for the whole country to come together to pay tribute to everyone who works within it after coming down with corona virus himself and spending three nights in intensive care Prime Minister Boris. Johnson credited NHS workers with saving his life, and his insisted it get whatever resources it needs. The main Labour Party opposition said the NHS has been starved of funding for the past decade during the government's austerity drive.

New Hampshire Primary Election Results 2020

"Let's return now to the results of the New Hampshire primary key win for Bernie Sanders terrible night for Joe Biden. The first one either while while sound is is so far at least winning the race for Democrats supporters can he convert that into the wider political appeal that he would need to defeat. Donald Trump in November. Joining me to discuss that and some of the day's other top stories are Vincent Vinny. UK correspondent for Euronews and political analyst and former BBC political correspondent. Kara okay. I'm carol normally. If you label anybody in American politics anything in American politics a socialist you might as well call them Communists Ernest. It's it's it's completely fatal and you can see candidate sanders going up against trump and socialists. Being about the only thing Donald Trump says for the next six months absolutely Leeann I think socialism socialist does have different connotations in the United States. It's still something where Donald Trump can successfully whip hop certainly a part part of the American electorate against him. I think what's interesting here is that yes last night was a good night for Bernie Saunders. But he was only a fraction ahead of Pete. Booty judge and we've seen Amy Klobuchar also showing very strongly. There's quite a long way to go in this race Bernie Sanders. This is in many ways. The Jeremy Corbyn of American politics. He's got this very powerful loyal. Fan Base significant pecan grassroots support activists who go out there and campaign for him but he's a very divisive figure. He's divisive even within the Democratic Party. And as I think you suggested that there are many even within the Democratic Movement who think that he is just too left-wing to socialist too radical to win over the number of votes the center ground to win votes back from Donald Trump. I mean Vincent. Those I had some voters being interviewed yesterday. Who Democrats who said? Look if it's if it's Bernie. We're not GONNA win. You might as well not even have the election because trump's in trump's GonNa win the election is there that sense and I suppose there is a parallel here to something we'll discuss later in the Labor Party in the UK. The sounders does very well with activists goes very well with committee diehard Democrats who are going to vote Democrat anyway but it's that question of whether he can win over those voters in the middle the ones who voted for a bomb but then voted not for trump as a two things on this. The first is yeah. There's obvious parallel with Jeremy copen hip. There's an obvious parallel with Donald Trump. Someone who wasn't a Republican came in as the fringe is candidate managed to get a strong movement behind him that really supports them then took over the party. And we're seeing the same thing with Bernie Saunders in. He has this movement that he carried forward Ford from the last election. He never ready suspended parts of his campaign the going through the last couple of years and now he is. He's still registered for the next senatorial race as an independent not even as a Democrat. And so he's coming. He's reregistered as Democrats run. He is running away with it. In these first two states and for the other candidates you know De de Joe Biden is basically what Bush was last time round. You Know Jeb. Bush even brought his. You know his brother former two-time president his dad on board the campaign and still couldn't make a breakthrough so we're seeing that same thing with Joe Biden. We'll see whether he he's GonNa Mention Obama even more in the build up to South Carolina but really now he is pretty much out of this this and if the Democrats want to get moderate candidate will clover shirt. You've got Warren. You've got pete. They and Bloomberg is well. Of course it's not forget they now need to pick one one of them and the others need to fall away. Otherwise they're going to be so split that Bernie Sanders is going to run away with this and the second thing to say is there is an ugly side to the Sanders Campaign Ryan as well. We saw it again. Last night. Cynthia Nixon the actress from sex in the city who try to become New Yorker Governor recently and is now a Bernie supporters. She had to shut down a crowd out who booed when Hillary Clinton's name was mentioned. And we're seeing there. Is this kind of vindictive side and Bernie's campaign the Bernie Bros.. Who are turning off mainstream even Democrats so it remains to be seen if Bernie can bring parties together because there are people unhappy with his conduct? The last election in Calvin mentioned some of the sort of people seen seen as the middle ground candidates. The aim Who did very well yesterday? But he's done well in in both the people around him seem to be trying to frame him now now as twenty twenty s version of Obama as the outside of that no one had heard of. Who's going to storm through the race? But I mean is he is he. Is he in Alabama a Buddha Jiji. You're talking about now. We'll look. He has clearly got charisma. He's young Buddy lacks experience I think it's very difficult to see how he could win over those saunders supporters. Just as. It's very difficult indeed to see. How Bernie Ernie Saunders can win over those that larger number of motors? I think what's interesting if you look at what happened last night Saunders was the victor there were about a third of the votes went to Saunders Elizabeth Warren on the more radical wing of the party more than half went to the others who more or less centrist. But as Vincent was pointing out They've got to make up their minds. Because if that memorial memorial vote is split between several different candidates Then there is a strong possibility that saunders come through the middle. I think we do have to watch out for Michael Bloomberg Berg who has fought this rather on docks campaign of skipping housed on all these primaries but his spending he spent since the beginning of the year more than three hundred million dollars on advertising and advertising campaign. That's getting through too much larger numbers than and these political events which perhaps only capture a small amount of the electorate now. He's a bit of an unknown quantity But he we'll certainly feel looking at the fact that there's no other really clear front runner at the moment that he still has to be in there with Jones. Obviously we will learn more. We we get to Super Tuesday at the beginning of March not may well be the death knell for Joe Biden. If he's not able to to to get anywhere but we never parallels British and American politics and in the general election in the UK. Back in December. You bumped into people said the choice I've been given is a hard right conservative government or hard left Labor government Vote is actually. Don't feel they sit in the middle in the end of the vote is did break left him right pretty much consistently if you go through that in America if it sounded Zondo's trump then what happens to those middle ground. American voters is the reason. No third party candidate has ever done anything other than screw up the mathematics the electoral college so presumably they all just going to have to pick a side. Yeah people always you know early on campaign people worried about Tulsi Gabbard splitting the Democrat. Vote but but I think just to go back on one part of your question. A we call Joe Biden now on one thing is that he polls extraordinary high with black voters and has ninety-nine percent name recognition in America. When we get to the next one which is South Carolina very You know African American state. He might surge ahead that it was interesting that he actually. He left New Hampshire last night before the result and he had a rally in South Carolina and then with Super Tuesday much more diverse state. So he could pull stuff back Because because you know Pete Bootleg does very poorly with black voters. Amy Club shells also good issues as a time as a lawyer in in terms of criminal issues that she prosecuted And so do you know. It's not absolutely so not yet but yeah it is for a lot of people. You Know Bernie. Democrats will have the same problem that Republicans had with trump. Is it. Do you just hold your nose and vote for him can burn. He put through a message of we have to get trump out which is what Joe Biden has been trying to do. You might not think I've got all these you know snazzy new policies but I'm just the take back the soul of America get trump out and what what the camp has to do behind Bernie is to really say say you know you have to hold your nose and vote for him just to get trump out but his policies and particularly an attack. I heard last night. The hadn't heard before with Bernie is you know. He took his honeymoon in the. US are before the Iron Curtain fell now in America that is going to play so bad and I think we're going to hear a lot more about that in the next couple couple of weeks

Of course some episodes look like interpersonal issues among the members of the royal family. Some look at events in the life of the country like the von Disaster In nineteen Sixty six and in many ways. They're kind of a cockeyed. Look at British history and the main characters The ones who endure over the seasons are the queen or husband Prince Philip. Her sister Princess Margaret a no her children especially as the two older ones and Charles. And one thing that's has happened in this season is that as the Queen has got an older and more established in her reign. She's been played it by a new actress.

Australia's Federal Election May Be a Tight Race

"Ever since Malcolm Turnbull nearly lost the twenty sixteen election, the polls, the pundits and the bidding markets that consistently put lie in a winning position pointing to a landslide this weekend. But such is the magic politics that the federal election could be a lot closer than anyone had the raw to expect a week or whatnot agai, remember during the past half-century close vigil elections favor, the incumbent, you think of Gordon's narrow victory over whitland in sixty nine the so-called don's party or Gillard up against Abbott losing her majority in twenty ten but when oppositions wind power from the government, the victories are usually in fatty, you think of phrases massive landslide against whitland, seventy five or how smashing catering in ninety six but in politics, there are no guarantees, and the smart money is still on a lie. Victory. And according to my guest, that may be a good thing for conservatism and the nation. Australia, where told needs a shortened government to help us break out of Al complacency genital Ricksen is a columnist with the Australian. She's a board member on the institute of public affairs, and a former board member here at the get I Janet, welcome to our Tom, now you're leading conservative commentator. So naturally, many of our listeners here on between the lines. We'll be shocked to hear you say that a and prime ministership could be a good thing house on Tom. I think some of my raiders were shelter and I made that argument few weeks ago, but I think it's we've now come to the position where we need the lived experience of a shorten government to return, the labor party to the wisdom of the hawk aiding agenda. We need a short and government to force a liberal party to get through what I think, is an existential crisis identity crisis to rediscover its roots to rebuild a very confused. Brand. And we, we the voters, we need lived experience of short and government to, to deliver, what I call buyer's remorse to realize that whitland, esque mix of big promises without policies that grow the economy is not just nicotinic disaster. But a social disaster, and I really think you have to go back to the days of the Whitlam era, to, to find the level of complacency that we see today, and my colleague at the astray Lian PO Kelly code. It know that nineteen sixties grand delusion, that continued prosperity was a strategy is destiny. And it's true, we've had almost thirty years of, of economic growth, but that is not a given. So you sign in the shorten economic agenda increases the prospects of a recession, and Farley will be mudbound, reality. I think that's absolutely right. Because Bill Schoten is very honest that he's politics, the politics of redistribution not growing economic pie, and it's it's much easier by the white to redistribute rather grow the economic pie. If you think of the big reform. The hard reforms in a strategy during the eighties nineties, and the early two thousands. They were hard reforms, but they were important reforms. It liberalized the economy. We're not seeing those same kind of policies with the short and government. He's Fago economics is a slogan. It's premised on complacency is premise on emotion. Just listen is shooting in some of the might say that, you know, we're, we're experiencing an ideological seachange in the electric, the oldest twenty percent of the electorate si- fifteen years ago in two thousand and four. When you wrote that conservatism was cool on the John Howard, the oldest twenty percent back. Then they largely voted for the coalition. They've been replaced by the youngest twenty percent of voters who lift, you got social media Twitter trolls, all the ride a poll show that socialism has risen in stature, especially among these millennials. And of course you got tried unions. They luckily to be reim- powered. So have haven't times changed time certainly have changed in the environment's changed. But what? What you're saying is very much. You know, not just the liberal party and existential crisis, but the left side of politics is strong because it's buttressed by so many elements in civil society that you do not see, on the centre-right of politics strata. It's almost as if liberalism depends on the liberal party in a stray area. And if you have a liberal party that stepped away from those basic, liberal values, what's left, so it really is up to other organizations, I think, to build the foundations of liberalism in ustralia to make deeper than the liberal party cannot rest on a conviction later such as John Howard. We haven't had one since two thousand and seven and look, what's happened to liberal values in that time you've had get up. You have the unions, you have the light party and other organizations. It's up to the center right of a Strayer to rebuild to make the case for liberal values. And that's what hasn't happened. You've written the Rausing damp of the wits in the liberal party has lift the joint with dodgy foundations. And just might clear, the conservatives now would rather walk away than stand up and fought. And he also criticized the so-called modern liberals. But at these decisions by the senior liberals to shift towards the so called center at they attempts to adjust to what many political analysts, I is an increasingly more progressive political and cultural landscape. I certainly think that way in politicians nervous about, you know, their prospects that they start to put on new labels. And we're saying range of liberals call themselves modern liberals. Now, I've pressed a few of them as to what the what that means, and it really doesn't mean anything, it's just a bit of branding. I call it branding bunkum. What is the most important to be successful in politics, merger of conviction with good retail political skills? We've seen that before the last ten years, though, we've seen we've seen the party and politicians on the center, right suffer a deficit of both conviction, and, and really good retail politics now recently under Scott Morrison, I think the party has started to reimburse, for example, explain the social good of a strong economy, the virtues of lower taxes, allowing people to have more of their own money to make decisions how they spend their money. But imagine if the liberal party had more core values at the center of it story for the past ten years, it would be in a much stronger position. It's not about rebranding as modern liberal. I mean this, this guy's back today, but Cameron calling himself, a compassionate conservative, or which had Nixon, quote himself, a conservative with a heart. What does it mean if liberal parties, make the moral case for classical liberalism, you want convince voters about the purpose of a liberal governor Cosa, just to clarify, you think it's premature to read the last rods two Austrailia conservatism. Your argument, is that conservatives a losing tonight because they not farting. But Janet, we had on this program last week Tim sue pomace on the former rice discrimination Commissioner, and he I use that a short vitual Mark the end of what's derided as neoliberalism hasn't market capitalism, filed given the widespread economic inequality, wick told by because I think the evidence is just not there for, for widespread economic inequality. It's become a slogan. If you look at their three surveys from the can. Census. And I think there was another one by Hilda. They all showed that inequality has pretty much not changed over three decades of productivity commission. More recently is found that claims to growing income inequality. Not true. The economic growth has lifted standards across all income groups. I mean these are the facts, but the slogan of income inequality is being used to justify dismantling capitalism, in the name of some sort of utopian social democratic project, we've been here before now at this stage Paul's point to alive victory. But Malcolm Turnbull mind tines he would won the election, if it weren't for his wing enemies in the media, and the potty room. Let's hear for major Neal's interview with tumble on the BBC two months ago at the time of the coup in August. We were level pegging on the public Paul's or the opposition and we were four points ahead on the polling in the marginal seats. But basically, you could argue that the concern was not that I would lose the election, but rather that I would win it. You telling me your own party didn't want you to win the next. I'm just saying if you analyze credit. Well, Andrew, you've only got to look at the facts because Malcolm Turnbull on the base on why he would have won the election Janet Albertson.

"So neither side feels they can trust that even if they come to an arrangement it won't be a case of just tipping us over the legal threshold, which means revoking is no longer an option because that's a big thing. That makes remain suddenly a lot more difficult. It makes remain a completely different proposition. And so he noted to give that legal threshold up. You have to be. Pretty sure the other side will do what they say. They're gonna do. And I just didn't think anyone can be in this environment. Which is why then it goes to a confirmatory referendum. He tax as a lock on it as it were. Yeah. I like, Steve Labor's formulation of Brexit vote under certain circumstances, the labor leadership I should say do does it wash with the electric. Do people really understand it because it's hard enough. Like us to understand what those circumstances would be no. Is. I can give you the hour long version. Least. Because you know, the fear among our listeners is superficial deal. With me, it's magically no longer, a Tory Brexit, and therefore people won't get that vote. But does the labor leadership understand the anger about that? This is a good question. I think that there's a level of understanding where I think the whole thing breaks down is the only labour Brexit deal under labor government, and there is no government. So there was no Brexit deal. I mean, that's the simplest formulation. That was kind of the fatal flaw with legs it right from the start wasn't it since idea that through Brexit, you could implement them socialist utopia. It's like, yeah. But you're not in power. But we've had more than one person say that enabling Brexit would be Labour's Jewish fees moment. Do you do you think it would be that serious in terms of a rupture of trust with the electro? I mean lib Dem's of comeback after nine years. I haven't they we saw that on Friday. So I think potentially you could be a lot worse because choosing fees. You know is an issue in a particular part of society, and actually for a particular, obviously you live with it. You should call on time. But all the people who are who didn't pay them. You know, it doesn't affect them directly. You know, before I was on the last people, not patron fees. The Brexit affects everybody, and we'll have a very long lasting consequences. So I don't think be easy to bounce back as the lib Dem's have over tuition fees. This all takes place against a backdrop of local elections where the great Bush's public expressed its insistence that parliament just get on with Brexit by voting in droves. For pro remain potted people from Jeremy hunt to Joe McDonald claimed it was a mass vote to get Brexit done. Instead of vote to not do Brexit at all Alex does the country by this idea that the way to signal yo support for Brexit is tobacco lot of anti Brexit. Parties. Listen, I've heard this point so much now. Even by quite respectable people saying, oh, the real winners were independence, and assuming that all the independence were as a block Brexit as which is just not true. I watched the results through the night. And you know, in most cases there were local issues. There was some kind of building on the green belt thing going on. You know, there were loads of different reasons, why dependence did. Well, and yes, some of them were ex- you Kip some of them wear Brexit vote. But even then they were under about two thirds of the gains made by clearly remain parties, including in places like Sunderland. I mean, there was a swing of twelve percent lib Dem's from labor in Sunderland ten percent from labour to greens in something. So he can't explain that away by saying, oh, everyone is. Is just anti-politics at the moment. And so they decided to vote for Vince Cable's party. I mean, it's ridiculous. Columnist Lucas to point it out, the most pro cool been and anti Brexit areas. Weren't voting London, for example. So did that have an impact to do you think? It'll be a lot worse. When London is in the reckoning. I think I think labour will get him when you mental spanking in London. So yes, the story was too many people voting for remain parties..

"Zero and getting back to what I left off with about the sore spot for equities in the markets. There were three items that I wanted to talk about here. This Sunday one being the US China relations, the trade war being more about more than just about trade. The yield curve the yield curve version, which I just. Left off with before the last break. And now the last thing is talking about the Brexit issues and kind of, you know, the are we backing off the Brexit cliff edge, so to speak, and I think that to Brexit risks could have a substantial negative impact on financial assets. I think a no deal cliff edge, Brexit and a far left. Labour government to recent political developments suggests that the probability of the former has receded somewhat. So again, those are two things that we need to look at a no deal cliff edge Brexit, and a far left labour government, and I just to point this out parliament reasserted itself by voting in favor of an amendment that we give it more say on the plan of action. If Prime Minister Theresa May's withdrawal Bill, which is due to be voted on in the house of Commons. This coming week on December eleventh if this were. If this were potentially to fail to pass, and I think rejection of the Bill is widely expected and given this widespread opposition to it in parliament, the second event is an opinion from an advocate general of the European Court of Justice known as the e CJ that the UK parliament could unilaterally revoke article fifty which is the two year process of leaving the European Union. So those are two big events that I think right now are putting some pressure and stress on the stock market, and I would stress that both of these events with the UK are non-legally binding yet combined both of these events they can able the largely pro European Union parliament to revoke article fifty if. The UK was seen as heading toward a no deal Brexit. So if the opinion of the advocate general were to be confirmed by the ruling of the European Court of Justice, the Jay. I mean that that is something that is is is to be concerned about I mean precedents suggests this is likely to be the case, but our base case our thoughts at our wealth management RBC capital markets. Our base case remains that the withdrawal agreement will eventually be approved and that the UK will exit the European Union, but the uncertainty could drag on so with the probability of a no deal. Scenario receding, the conviction again in our market weight on not only US stocks. But now, you K stocks the UK stock market our conviction in a market, wait on the UK stock has grown. So all this is is a balancing act between the US and China the yield curve inversion so much pressure the Brexit issues. So I think the risks related to U S China relations. The treasury yield curve and the Brexit. Circumstances will likely remain on equity markets radar screen over the next several months over the near term and other uncertainties could also resurface as the markets are working through this very tough. Correction period. I know it's I get emails and phone calls from clients some people I think are a little bit. Calloused by the market volatility. Now, they understand it. Whereas others haven't been through it before. And they're. They're very timid and they're very concerned. So all of this this correction period right now, these risks that I just highlighted should be balanced against reliable leading economic indicators in our view at RBC, and thus for our indicators again are not signaling an elevated threat of recession, and therefore we would maintain a market wake recommendation on overall global equity exposure in your investment portfolio and for US exposure as well so with that taking another.

So it starts with very long sort of values based section about Labor's moral superiority. I suppose to the conservatives which also included a reference to you, but not in the policy for the anti semitism row over the summer. Now, I thought it was quite confident speech actually was probably the the best deliver I've ever seen from Jeremy Corbyn. I think actually the whole conference certainly giving the Tories around for their money given how we expect things to be next week yet, Jeremy Piven definitely sounded very confident and he signed quite relaxed, I think is a development. I think even. Those people, he will watching saying disagree of everything in the speech was saying it sounded at least it's confident delivery, and he sided authoritative in the way he was pushing putting it about. So that was interesting. I don't say in in that who is will make sure she stood there, but you could tell that the crowd is so behind him and it so many points that he can even really finish his sentences about being interrupted by pools. And I think those particular fluids when he touched on Palestine and the fact that the ship would recognize Palestine as soon as they labor government and I think foreign policy, we know it's driving gugans big passion with most at Yemen. I'm, he talks random wisdom's and persecution that and that seemed to play at very, very well to the base I, yes, it was definitely aimed in large pause at the membership, which isn't a criticism because this is a party conferences, not an election address, and he certainly setting the membership home. Very happy. Indeed, Nye was in the hole in the atmosphere in there was very upbeat, very supportive. As you say, Katie, he did manage to recover from surprise standing ovations in a way that he hasn't done previously, and I was impressed by his ability at times to ad-lib with extra jokes to recover from little takes in the script. For instance, he just seemed very comfortable in his own skin, and I think that's really being the way conferences being ruler. She, I think the party does seem very comfortable in its new skin. There's not really that much talk for instance of the Blairites anymore whom as to so they don't exist anymore. The Corbin is no that they're in charge that is their party now and they're really focusing motley want to do with the party and in government. And I have to say there were so many references in the speech to what this shadow minister will do once they're in government, what Labor's going see, what's government that share would have sounded ludicrous a couple of years ago maybe a bit delusional. The labour leader was just saying. Because you sort of have to pretend that you're being of -ment because sense now that Germany Kuban actually is hungry to being government. And he really does think that the labor party's a chance of doing so. And importantly, we did get Jeremy Corbyn John. I think several times VN's double figures on that. I wasn't counting have to say they would also stall as well either to the sort of theme fit bull slash festival vibe going on. Do you think he looks like a prime minister in waiting? I mean, I, if he looked, he looked like he could be prime minister dating. He's everyone's ideal prime minister in waiting, but I think. As touches on, I think they definitely sound in the most serious and this conference you could criticize it by saying it's being slightly flatter than not shares last buzzy, but I think this side effect that is they seem like more of a serious smooth operation that sad. I think that they be there'll be some disappointment within the labour leash and among the shadow cabinet that dispatch has been overshadowed a little bit today by a fringe event..

"Tonight Jeremy Corbyn will present his ideas for reforming the media industry when he addresses the Edinburgh television festival today. Including talking about the risk of a few tech giants and unaccountable billionaires in his words. Having too. Much control, of. Our public space in debate and? The idea of taxing companies like Facebook and using the proceeds to help fund the BBC we'll Tom Watson the. Deputy, labour, leader and the shadow culture centuries in our Brighton, studio good morning good morning Michelle how would this digital licence-fee work I in terms of of why the tech companies would agree to fund the BBC to help from. The BBC well Michelle let me just put this in context to benefits does Policy enough focus on media reform is being trying. To deal with the transgressions of the tabloid media that broke the law now we've got. A lot. Of pushback, Riley. From editors and publishers who said? Why you're focusing on that but you're not looking at what's happened in the media market in the digital age. And, what, we've realized the more we understand is the the. Olive Opelousas like, Google and Facebook now take in more. Than fifty percent of all UK digital advertising revenues in the country and yeah as organizations, they avoid paying their fair share of taxes they. Avoid democratic accountability it's not so long ago that I remember our taxing, them help, those other parts of the the pulse of the press that you're, talking about the ones that rely on advertising revenue how did bring more revenue to them so what we say, today is the start of. A conversation in the building to manifest and we are saying very clearly to the giants you need to take responsibility in play your role in the media market digital disruption. Men that we've lost three hundred local newspapers in the last decade their own half as many journalists working, in local and regional media is there were in two thousand and seven and you. Can either play you can either volunteer to play your socially responsible Supporting public interest journalism or a future labour government will act and, one of the ways we might do that is by a windfall tax or Levy that he the subsidizes the, license fee for the BBC, for poorer families or helps breathes life into independent Would that be, a one awful would that being would that be a new on getting time. We've got a prescription or, a model for Michelle. This is really really important. Isn't it because if you're talking about revenue that all the pulse the media, going to rely on it can't be a one off yet and Jeremy is rolling the dice today starting that conversation this really this is not policy this is. Stimulating discussion on it's really saying that the labor party a future labour government acknowledge the the the absolute might and power of the tech giant's is an issue of concern for people worried about How does tax them help. A local newspaper stay in, business while it might. Be that it funds tax. Breaks for new cooperative models in the digital space it might be that it, helps fund new local journalism it might be providing funds that could alive sort of commodity court reporting These are all ideas on the on you know on the well I mean, it seems that you'll thinkings at a very early stage on all of. This but there's? A fundamental problem with. The idea texts taxing the tech giants which is that it's. Not easy to do it most of them. Are American and even if, you found a way to do. It you can necessarily rely on on the amount of money you get in could you want they got a business they could be significant drop in men? Come one particular year it's not exactly a stable source. Of funding if the state wills it the state could make it happen The Keep a particular tech company that's doing very well one, year not so, well another business that we, can we can legislate to make sure that people play that. Role the media market is very heavily regulated for a reason because it's an important part of our.
