Sebastian and Mike Graham Discuss Liz Truss' Resignation
"Given the situation, I can not deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party. I have therefore spoken to his majesty the king to notify him that I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party. No U turns this lady's not for turning, I remember that catch phrase from Margaret Thatcher when I lived in the UK well, this one didn't just do U turn. She got off the highway, a record 44 days in office, shortest serving prime minister ever, gone, goodbye, Liz truss. What does it all mean? How did it happen? We stay on top of international news as much as anything else. I'm your host Sebastian gorka, and you're listening to America first on the Salem news channel. Who do we rely upon? Our good friend across the Atlantic, the man who speaks truth and common sense on the fastest growing channel there. It is talk TV. It's our good friend. Mike Graham, welcome back to America first. Sebastian, thank you very much. Indeed, well, it's been quite a day. It's been quite a week. It's been quite a 44 days. You might say, as you said, the shortest period ever, some think this has been a remainder plot. There are those in this country who still can't take the fact that Brexit was a success and that we left the European Union. You know, we now have Jeremy hunt, who's had Chancellor, who voted to remain in the EU. Let's trust was a remainer who changed into a brexiter and is now out. Boris Johnson, however, is the big name on everybody's lips tonight because but hang on, hang on, hang on, didn't you just get rid of him, Mike? Yeah. We might be getting him back. It could be the greatest political comeback of all time. You know how he's very much like Donald Trump. They're trying to get him every single step of the way. They are terrified of Boris Johnson coming back because he is the one man who can unite the Tory party who can win an election against the Labor Party and who could actually restore everything for them. Nobody's quite sure if he's going to run, but he's already in the lead in the polls and he's already in the league in the House of Commons as far as MPs is supported.

"labor party" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Conservative government and they have been for quite some time now. They'll forget we were talking about the public falling out the conservatives around inflation. Price rises, shortages, way back in sort of August, the September of last year. So this has been a long time coming, and it's got to take a long time to get back out of it. And I think the public needs to be given the sense that Conservative Party get their problems, they can be trusted on the economy and they have a plan to solve the cost of in crisis because right now they simply do not. And that's the one thing that's really hammering them in the polls right now. Okay, so does the Labor Party provide that? And I suppose, what is the scenario for an early general election? I mean, as I said, the government doesn't have to call one according to the kind of parliamentary rules until January 2025. So is there a scenario under which you might see an early election and then the Labor Party win? So I give him the poems in the polls right now. I'm not entirely convinced the conservatives would go for another general election, particularly given the sense that labor do have a momentum right now. They do have something of a head of steam. Now, of course, much of the polling lead that labor have is as much to do with people saying, well, particularly conservative 2019 voters saying that they don't know what they would do if election were held tomorrow as it is people actively saying I will vote labor, having rolled through conservative last time. So there isn't really a big sort of shift in attitudes towards the Labor Party in terms of the public now think that they're ready for government. I think the Keir Starmer is ready to be prime minister. There is momentum behind those figures, labor R starting to convince people, but they've got a long way to go. There is no wide ranging endorsement to the Labor Party right now or but they are moving in the right direction. I think as long as that keeps happening, I think the chances of an early general election keep diminishing. Okay. Patrick, thank you so much for your time this morning, really good to have you on associate director of YouGov Patrick English. So siva, there you have it. It's not as if the Labor Party are hugely convincing in their messages, at least not according to the polling. It is simply the unpopularity of the conservative government that has hit home and I suppose when you see mortgage rates having moved so rapidly in the space of a week, it's having an immediate impact on people in the economy. Yeah, it certainly is. I mean, that is one of the big issues that people will be listening out to see what quasi quoting has to say about his plans for the economy because all they've had so far is promises of tax cuts and then the resulting chaos on the markets which led to, among other things, mortgage costs going up and so many lenders withdrawing mortgage products as well as a plenty to watch out for in quasi quieting. It speaks later on, Carlin will be back with you in Birmingham very shortly for more from the Conservative Party conference coming up next on the program though we will be talking about the outlook for the guilt market after last week's meltdown here in the UK. We're going to be joined by Gordon Shannon portfolio
Liz Trust and the Women of Britain
"I ought to be covering and I will cover some of Liz trust's first day as prime minister. There is a wonderful colloquy between prime minister Liz trust and former prime minister Theresa May about why women prime ministers are only Tories, of course they began with Maggie that. Let's just play that now. Cut number one. Today's the May. Thank you, mister speaker. May I congratulate my right honorable friend and welcome her to her position as the third. Can I ask my right honorable friend? Why does she think it is? It all three female prime ministers have been conservative. Well, I thank my right honorable friend for her fantastic question. I look forward to calling on her advice from her time in office as I start as I start my work as I start my work as prime minister. It is, it is quite extraordinary, isn't it? That doesn't seem to be the ability in the Labor Party to find a female leader. Indeed, a leader who doesn't come from North London. Yeah.
Carl Benjamin AKA Sargon of Akkad Shares His Story
"Little bit about the car Benjamin story. Right. So I come from very humble background. My father was a sergeant in the RAF before he retired. A few years ago. And he had worked his way up from the very bottom because he came from a council estate in the oval. So my mother also came from a council flat in council house in wood and Bassett. So very humble position. I was fortunate enough to do computer science at the university when I was 19. There's a degree, but honestly, I found it really boring, and so I dropped out. And so I spent the next ten or 15 years just working in tech jobs really because that was what I had an aptitude for. Until woke politics came for the things I like. So let's start at that point in time, how would you have described yourself politically? Well, I would have described myself as left wing, actually. Labor Party or that kind of thing. Yeah, I probably would have done, although I have to say I wasn't politically very interested. Because it wasn't terribly interesting at the time to me. But it turned out that. His maxim was it. Pericles maxim, that. See, he's doing it now. He's doing it now. You might not be in a little bow mow carry on pericles, go ahead. You might not be interested in politics, but politics is very interested in you. At the start of my Trotsky, yes, and it was absolutely true, and once I became aware of this was not right. So luckily, I'd always taken a deep interest in history. I just thought I'd always found it fascinating. And so even just in my spare time, I would read history books read the original text of like thucydides or theodora, so whoever. It was just things that I just found interesting. Luckily enough. And
California Is No Garden
"They'll be telegraph has a devastating piece, California is no Garden of Eden. It is now a woke basket case whose rich and poor are fleeing alike. That Nick Clegg has become the latest Facebook executive to announce he's fleeing Silicon Valley for Britain, where he will spend half his time, says a lot about California. Britain is on the brink of a deep and protracted recession. With inflation set to rise to 13%. And yet, for dick Clegg, who is the former head of the Labor Party, big Brit. Basket case Britain seems to be preferable to California.

"She just happened to election. But that can't be helpful to Johnson at this point, right? I mean, he's not he's not personally popular. And having a new election would bring labor to power. Am I wrong about that? Well, yeah, those of us who are rational would look at it and go yeah, there's a chance labor would probably be a minority government. I don't think I don't think even now with an 8 point lead that the Labor Party will get a majority of seats. In parliament, but it would be a minority government definitely. So labor would be in power. But Johnson's not rational. He's been hanging on long past the period when most every other prime minister was confronted these series of actions. By his own members of his party, have walked with dignity. He didn't walk with dignity. And he could be thinking, well, I really love being prime minister. And as you saw from his resignation speech, it was defiant. He talked about he talked about his biggest conservative majority since 1987, the biggest popular vote chair for the conservatives since 1979 Brexit Brexit Brexit Brexit, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine. And he was basically taking credit for all of that. Because in his head, he's the reason. So if he does want to hold on to power, that's the last throw of the dice. Is he sufficiently vindictive that he would his anger is directed mainly at the Tories. And so he wouldn't be unhappy to result in a labor government. He shacked Michael gove, what last night, and Michael gove had heretofore been one of his conscious defenders. And Michael gove had the temerity to say, yeah, you might want to resign. And he sacked him from government. So that's a friendship gone. Yeah, he's clearly vindictive. And so I don't think he cares about the Conservative Party. Much in the same way where Jeremy Corbyn didn't care about the Labor Party. Jeremy Corbyn faced obviously a much smaller scale because it didn't dramatically affect the course of the country. But in 2016, again, following the Brexit referendum, the parliamentary Labor Party felt that Jeremy Corbyn didn't do enough to campaign to remain. And of course he wouldn't have, because he was always elected. He always wanted out of the European Union. And so there was a vote in no confidence in the parliamentary Labor Party against Jeremy Corbyn. 80% no confident. Most people would go right. I can't lead a party where 80% of the parliamentarians don't like me. He stayed. For another four years. You know, so.

"Those would and polling that I've seen would seem to suggest that Boris also did not have a lot of popular sport, right? He could not, he could not sort of rely on the people resorting to the people in order to keep him in power that he was struggling on that front as well. Well, looking at it anecdotally being somebody that at least until tonight I'm standing down in my role as campaign coordinator for the Plymouth Labor Party, but for the last 5 years, this is something I've done. And I will still be knocking on a lot of doors talking to a lot of voters for the Labor Party. One of the things we saw in the last cycle and especially the two words that I paid particularly close attention to, the one counselor candidate that I managed directly and the other one that I helped out with significantly, a lot of conservative voters voters we know who are consistently conservative were voluntarily bringing abortion on the doorstep and saying this can't stand. This can't last. And so he did lose a lot of people. Now the problem with this is for the Labor Party is the Labor Party misinterpreted the results of that election. And they thought, hey, we're great. We're awesome, aren't we? If you look at the numbers at least here in Plymouth, where I volunteer my time. Four out of every 5 votes that switch didn't switch. They were just votes that the conservatives lost from the previous set of council elections were abstentions. Their conservative voters who stayed home. And these are people that couldn't come out even in a local election. Couldn't come out and be seen to be supporting the Conservative Party under Boris Johnson. So they stayed home instead of switched to the Labor Party illegal Democrats. They will be back and they will probably be back voting conservative again. So this is something that the opposition party is Labor Party lived in and these by elections need to be interpreted as. Now the Wakefield by election, the one that was long-term labor. That's probably going to stay labor. In the next general election. The tiverton and Hansen by election went down here in Devon. That has been conservative for a million years. And this time went Liberal Democrat. That could easily be seen as going back to the conservatives in the next general election, because a by election, it's what we as political scientists refer to as the second order election. There's less on the line. And so people feel more empowered to cast a protest vote or to stay home because they're not risking who's a number ten. So they use it to send a message. When number ten is on the line, when the top jobs on the line, loyalists are going to turn out and be low. So that's how I would interpret those
UK Conservatives lose 2 elections in blow to Boris Johnson

"Bloomberg opinion informed perspectives and expert data driven commentary on breaking news It is 9 20 in the city time to check in then with Bloomberg opinion We are joined by opinion columnist Therese Rafael who's been writing about the Tory appropriation of the windfall tax proposal She says after months of bruising regulations revelations and investigations into party gate the government is desperate to change the subject and adopt labor calls for a windfall tax on energy companies describing in the peace This as a quote panicky chess move intended to protect the king but not really advance the government's own position To read let me take the opposite side of that This is an important fiscal response from a government that is listening to the concerns of the people Yes absolutely Rishi sunak got a lot of stick for his budget in March It was said not to do enough to address cost of living Britain has been behind a number of other European countries in responding to rising energy prices with relief for particularly poorest households So there's absolutely a rationale of political and an economic rationale for doing something and the fact that this came from the Labor Party It wasn't exactly the Labor Party proposal In fact he went much further than the Labor Party had originally proposed That's something that the Tories are happy to wear for now I think the criticism comes with whether this is really part of a broader strategy to deliver sort of growth in investment to the UK economy a supply side change rather than just subsidizing demand And I think that's where Tories who are fiscal conservatives who will understand why Rishi sunak needed to act now will still be a bit nervous They'll want to see some sign at some point soon that the government has a bigger plan and it's not simply going to respond to these kinds of pressures with more spending and more taxation because you can only do that so many times Yes And at 15 billion pounds it is a lot of money I suppose will that be it then I mean there's going to be an autumn budget That's actually when another set of energy price rises is going to hit So there'll be pressure again right there I think inevitably there's going to be pressure again If we're particularly if we're looking at inflation figures around 10% in September for example we don't know where the war in Ukraine will how far that will continue to put pressure on energy prices on food prices So and I think it's quite clear that although this goes a very long way to helping the poorest households there are still enormous cost of living pressures and that will come back and there will be demands for more I think we will probably see more taxation windfall taxation potentially on electricity generation So that's also something to look out for But the other question the government is going to have to answer is how to pay for it all Obviously we don't have detailed costings of this There will be counting on better tax receipts as we've seen so far from the OBR but it's a pretty big gap How much stock do you put in the hand ringing of the likes of BP on this windfall tax Well it's interesting because BP was a BP almost gave the government a pass there and saying that industry makes an investment decision pretty far out So therefore the windfall profits that they've experienced were not necessarily priced and when they made those investment decisions in a windfall tax wouldn't affect their longer term plans So I think it's pretty opportunistic on BP side And I don't think the government is going to take too much node on that At the same time it does put out a signal that says the markets are not going to take windfall taxes.

"But I'm not going to because I didn't come here to necessarily just spout the Labor Party lines. I have thousands and thousands of women contacting me and men who are really concerned that we can't just have this conversation. That's what it's about. You've been called and other sex post rights campaigners have been branded dinosaurs by colleagues in your party. That was the comedy gift that keeps on giving. I mean, David lammy is a friend and I don't think he saw that coming at all, but you know, I've been sent lots of dinosaur broaches and badges and people dressing up as dinosaurs and I've got a T-shirt of me and Joe Rowling dressed as dinosaurs. I don't think it was meant the way it came across, but persona non grata in your own party. You're still chair of labor's women's parliamentary party and you don't seem to agree with what your leaders saying you seem to agree with what Boris Johnson is saying. I think Boris was really clear. He was asked a question in PMQs a couple of Wednesdays ago and he's obviously been really thinking about and reading about this issue and all weaponizing the culture. Well, maybe he is weaponizing it, but then why the Labor Party allowed it to be optimized. I don't know. That's your strategy. Keep losing elections. It's not my strategy. I'm not involved in this strategy. I'm just a mere back venture, but you know, I think I did try and warn the party that this was coming. And I think the feeling was that it was a niche issue that it would go away. Why? It hasn't gone away. Well, some are also saying this is an incredibly niche issue. It's not to the thousands of women that I don't mean. But I also, we have millions of listeners, and I also have to respond. I mean, I've got a message the other day saying that somebody didn't even understand one of my interviews that I've done on this because they can't follow some of the lingo. There's a lot that people have to get there heads around. Why are you? Still an MP for the Labor Party. I believe in the Labor Party as a movement. It's never just about the state. And you also don't agree with this leader and what you say is one of the most important issues at the moment that isn't a niche issue. So why are you staying in a movement that has made you a person somebody that's not somebody who's respected or valued? I think it's not just a party or a movement for the few at the top. It is the biggest party of the left in Western Europe is something like 500,000 members. I'm here to represent my constituents and the members that I know are really engaged in this issue. That's women counselors. People who signed what we call the labor women's declaration, which is a group within the party. And that you'll stand. I understand all of that that it's big, right? But you're standing there under a banner under a leader who won't say if a woman can have a penis or not, and you are at odds with that position..
Comparing the American and British Systems of Government
"The American system of government is unique in many respects, the founders thought of it as a nervous order, seclorum, a new order for the ages, but while being unique in some respects, it is also continuous to a degree inherited from these system of government in England in Great Britain. But when we look at Great Britain, we see that it has a different form of democracy than we do. We have constitutional democracy. I don't know if you know, but Great Britain does not have a constitution. There's no constitution. We have a so called presidential system of government. And they have a parliamentary system of government. Now, India, in fact, where I grew up also has a parliamentary system, very much modeled on the English system. And one key difference by the way between the English system and the American system is that in the English system, you run for office as a member of a party. And so for example, Margaret Thatcher or Boris Johnson, they're running as the leader of the Tory party. And then you have another guy who's running as the leader of the Labor Party, and whichever party wins, that party's man, a woman becomes the leader, becomes the prime minister. And in that sense, you may say that the prime minister is coming out of the legislative branch because the legislative branch is the party that has been chosen by the people to rule or to legislate to make to make laws. Interestingly, if you are a leader of one party, let's say your Margaret Thatcher and your Tori and you're the leader of the Tory party. And there's a fight within the Tory party and your challenge by other Tory members and the Tories to take a vote and decide we'd rather have a different leader, you're out as prime minister. Now notice that doesn't happen in America. The Democrats in the House or Senate can't get together and say, listen, we no longer want Joe Biden. Let's get rid of him. And Biden's out. No, Biden's not out why, because Biden is independently elected as the president directly by the people, or at least so the story goes.

"Of the wrist. During the first decade of the century this is the two thousands. It was widely believed that the future belonged to the developing world and we all remember the rock solid growth emerging markets of brazil russia india china. You've written a lot about this the so-called bricks but during the pass tickets at the twenty teens so many emerging economies have grown. Far more slyly. Why it's because that is usually the nantong that most people think that all because it's a developing country and emerging nation. It's bound to grow more quickly because that's where the growth is. That's where the population is. The base is a lot lower and it's able to lift off from a lower base but that's just not true because the reason many countries are not able to grow rapidly is because they have so many institutional weaknesses. They end up not being able to reform when things are good. The only reform when the times are bad. So that is the reason that you had so much hubris which had set into these economies in fact a decade ago. The first book i wrote was called breakout nations. My main thesis in that book was that a lot of these emerging economies such as brazil russia. Are we over. Hyped and the true breakout nation in the world. Is america now a decade later. Things are very different but the reason why these economies did so poorly over the last decade of expectations guard very high. They picked up a lot of debt. They did not carry out any economic reforms and then many of them suffered as the commodity cycle went bust and a lot of these emerging economies are still very dependent on commodities as their major export so that combination is what led to this major growth disappointment over the last decade for so many of the other economies outside of the united states. And yet you are optimistic about the twenty twenties. Yeah i've got this view in my head which that if you look at the bus hundred years you see a very consistent baton which that every decade that is some team which dominates the global economy and then in the subsequent decade that team ends up underperforming or going bust right. We can go back and look at history in this. The nineteen eighties was all about japan. We all thought that japan was gonna conquer the world then that way bus nine hundred ninety s.

The labor party's first female leader. I don't know. I mean. Look i hope and pray that we have a labor government in two thousand twenty three or twenty twenty four which means that star will be the labor prime minister and he could be laid the prime minister in those circumstances for a very long time. There's a lot of looking volt in politics. Nick may well be the the the battle to be. Labour's first female leader will go to a different generation. If kid doesn't succeed in the next general election then clearly then they will be voting for a leadership contest. in which case. I'm almost certain that angela would roll. And i think she would be in a very good position to be labour's first female leader unless the loss of the care leadership could also be pinned on angela as deputy leader.

I would like to think that will be a female leader labor party sort of in my lifetime too much hopeful but i don't know whether it will be engineering all depends when and in what circumstances it falls vacant. What's the labor party looking for at that point is looking for a change of ideological direction is looking for different personality. What's it looking for. That point depends whether it's been on.

When you listen to them tool they. Broadly have the same diagnosis about what has gone wrong on what they need to. They need to fix. And that means.

So you know kind of successful people. Dial the political position was right with the candidate was wrong. Then she starts in an incredibly powerful position but so much of it is not within her control. I think you can easily see how either she runs next time antares well before her all she ends up in zone we've seen so many Potential party leaders of all stripes. Which is kind of ending up being no-one's kinda because you the left has a kind of its own.

Had Mr McCullen. Mr. McConnell to that group is well, one or two of this school. You know, I've never been so passionate about politicians. I have Donald Trump. I think he's been fabulous. You know, both sides of the pond I would like in him. There's no on par with wisdom. Churchill, who was a leader of the moment during World War two. It was hated us after the war hook for various reasons, and it wasn't successful. I would put that put Donald Trump on the same level as Winston Churchill for what he's done over the last four years on Winston Churchill had hired about one with the Labor Party. Against his his administration. But don't come to me. He's been fabulous. Whatever he does in the future. What the reforms his own party and I will go in a heartbeat.

There's very, very few politicians that we said that we love And we lived with our hearts for what he's done for this country on what you continues to try to do despite the homes, So the Democrats want to learn from that from that little show.

"I Just about the massive amount of job losses that happened in San Diego. And I think that there's something to be said for you know, looking at both sides of this looking at the side of the of the employer and the employee, So let me take the top down. Look nationally first and Um are we saw another 742,000 Americans filed for first time unemployment benefits. Last week, New jobless numbers unexpectedly rose, even though covert nineteen's going up the job numbers been going in the right direction, but now they're marching higher. The department the Department of Labor Party released this weekly report on jobless claims. Thursday morning Mane remain part of results is that the initial jobless claims I mean first time claims ending for the weekend, November 14th rose 42,000. That is a a Nestea CCU stadium full of people. Basically that filed initial jobless claims that came with shutting down the economy and so on and so forth. Continuing claims people there continue to be on unemployment. Are at 6.37 million versus a 6.4 million that we expected, eh? So that's good news. It's going the right direction, so we're holding below the million mark for 1/12 straight week on initial jobless claims. Those new claims also rose for the first time in nearly five weeks. So, um, a couple of things we need to discuss there are around the 12 Million American people. Workers are gonna lose unemployment benefits as two of the temporary stimulus programs are coming to an end the pandemic unemployment system, the P U. A on the pandemic emergency unemployment Act, the P u. A. I think, r p you see is what it's called. Those programs are set to expire at the end of 2020. That's only 15 million. Jobless workers without any unemployment benefits unless Congress steps in and what's worse is that this cuts off The peace of the economy that's called spending and you hear me talk about this all the time. That 70% of any economy is based upon the amount of money we can spend. If you don't have a job, you can't spend money. If you can't spend money. You can't buy stuff. You can't buy stuff. Nobody's gonna manufacture stuff. The only manufacturer stuff it means that you're not going to spend money so ugly that circle that we have. That's what's going on. Bottom line is what we're seeing is the definitive change from the very aggressive help that we got from Congress. To the unemployed specifically. To almost nothing in a matter of months, right when Coben infections are on the rise, and you could see that very, very clear on the North County corridor here in San Diego, I'm gonna talk to Anne Ellison just a second, but the North County corridor. You know, if you think in terms of job losses and what happened, it's really interesting to see that that five cities air on the route 78 okay. What they call the North County quarter have lost more than 36,000 jobs in the last year, and that's according to the Sandy you North Economic Development Center. And we're talking about. Of course, this is not a surprise to you. Hotels, restaurants, other hospitality industries. Hardest hit categories. Of course. You got retail here in there and you and so on and so forth. But this has been something very big. Um, this hospitality sector represents for 24% of our entire economy in San Diego. So for me It's time to ask the questions on what is what's the landscape going to look like Once that all the dust settles? Is there going to be a legal issue with the employers that had to let people go? Are people gonna be suing the state? Are our employees gonna be suing employers gonna be suing the state here to talk about that? And more? My good friend Andy Ellis from the law offices of Anne Ellis Any Alison is an employment attorney. You could go to an e l asla dot com. And he heard my long winded preamble there. But it's a good question. When the dust settles, I think you're going to be busy one way or the other girl. Already busy Sully. I mean, it's it's insane queue for there was such a spike and litigation and it's It's devastating because a lot of it does come from right now. The layoffs and the furloughs that happened months ago and employees are upset because they can't get jobs. Particular in the restaurant industry where we've reverted back to purple that impact the greatest. And so now they're they're finding this is the right time to go. Talk to the lawyer is their benefits run out. You need to pay their bills, and we're seeing a huge spike in demand letters, agency charges and losses. Here's my question. What's gonna happen when the dust settles, and these people realize that or let's say employers say, Look, I had to let you go, and now the people are filing for unemployment claims. Now there are now the worker's comp. Unemployment goes up is the result of firing people. I mean, you know this just circle I'm talking about here, right? I mean, it turns out to be a money grab for everybody but the employer as well as the employees. Yeah, I think this is this is really something where I think the plane of bars gonna benefit in terms of the increase of litigation. But what I'm frustrated with is the fact that employees when they're deciding to pursue the side claims or the benefits were now and they're deciding on the next step is it's a bit shortsighted. I mean, we should really be looking at what's the next step in these industries? How can you pivot your skill set? In order to get a different job. And obviously the roll back the 41 County being purple out of 58, where as you know, the week before it was nine, or 10 is really devastating to a lot of these industries, including the gym industry and similar ones. Yeah, So here's my question for you. What? So let's say we saw the cease and desist list that came out earlier in the week. And you saw The gym called fit. That was had a problem. A couple of younger places and a few restaurants and so on and so forth. You know how we know what happens Exactly when I'm not suggesting that this happened. I'm just saying, Let's say Jim, ABC, Jim Got a seat in season assist. They didn't see sort assist. What happens at that point, you know, it's really interesting. The sympathetic one is one that I've followed pretty closely. Also, the worship services one and I've worked on a few of these cases, so I thought that I thought ex approach was created. They self declared themselves an essential sector because of their relationship with the insurance industry in their promotion of health and safety, And they decided that was enough to stay open after we turned purple. Well, the county didn't like that. So the season this is it to warn them. If they don't comply, then they're going to be held in contempt, and the sheriff We'll show up, shut them down. So what they did. Is there personally in a lawsuit in court to determine whether or not the state and county regulations on the purple status impacting the gym industry, in particular is unlawful on the worship services are doing the same thing because purple impact Not just, you know, Jim's and restaurants, but it also churches as well and endorse services, which are important to so many people, especially this time of year. So I'm starting to see trials populate in January for these issues, but it's gonna be really telling Well, just to be clear any what it meant was is that indoor eating? His tablets just had to go from 50% occupancy that 25% occupancy and Jim's had to go from Indore occupancy with Pee, Pee and Social distancing toe on Lee outside, If you could do it now, obviously, there's some gyms in this town in North Park in particular part of the beach areas. There ain't no outside there is there is in a parking lot for these people..
