"labor party" Discussed on KCRW
"Is morning edition from NPR News. I'm David Greene. And I'm no well, king. Good morning. Republicans and Democrats aren't the only ones trying to figure out what President Trump's loss in The election means British politicians are doing the same thing. Biden's victory is a hit to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, but it might be an encouraging sign for Britain's opposition Labour Party. Here's NPR's Frank Langfitt. Boris Johnson sold Brexit to British voters is a way to escape the bureaucracy of the European Union and get better free trade deals with major economies, especially the U. S, which sounded likely under Trump. Here's Vice President Mike Pence, speaking with Johnson last year, the United States is ready, willing and able to immediately negotiate a free trade agreement with the UK Fantastic Trump back to you Cave trade deal because he's a big supporter of Brexit. What a difference on election makes. Biden does not like Brexit. As he explained a couple of years ago, a Chatham House, the London think tank with regard to Brexit. Had I been a member of Parliament Had I've been in British citizen I would have voted against. Leave. Biden opposed Brexit because, Like many, he thinks it weakens Europe and the UK Annex. Britain less valuable Toe America, United States ability To play a major role in the security of the West rest impart upon great Prince influence in Europe, so we lose to the extent you lose interests Most here don't expect a UK trade deal will be a priority for Biden as he looks to mend fences in Europe damaged by President Trump. And Britain might have to wait until at least 2022 for any agreement. Andrew Idleness is appear with the main opposition Labour Party in Britain's House of Lords. What I think is more significant about Biden's victory. Is it undermines that Let's go intellectual case for Brexit. The only way that that appeared credible as a political project was by claiming that it was going to be substituted by trade deals and a closer trade relationship with the United States on a course that policy is now being blown out of the water. As in the United States, political parties in Britain are already trying to draw lessons from last week's election. There's no doubt that the Labour Party will be very happy with this outcome. Sarah Ho Bolt is a political scientist of London School of Economics, she says cure. Starmer, who runs the Labour Party is seen as a solid, competent, moderate sharp contrast with Johnson, a political showman whose often seemed overwhelmed by the pandemic. I think what they will be hoping, perhaps when looking at this election is that this victory of a sense of quiet competence of a Biden over the charismatic identity politics. It is one that they can emulate. But Johnson's conservative party may also be reassured by Trump's strong showing. Matthew Goodwin teaches politics at the University of Kent. The fact that Trump was no repudiated in the sense we know he lost the election but also got 70 million votes. I think probably There will be some within Britain who will view that as being an election result that doesn't necessarily require them to find a new formula. The conservative Party here will also be watching closely to see who eventually takes trumps place, which is obviously going to be fascinating. You've got the Marco Rubios. You've got the Josh Haleigh's positioning to be the kind of trump to 0.0 to kind of take that territory and make it a little bit more acceptable. Versus others who will say, Well, let's go back to good, old fashioned mainstream Republicanism. In the meantime, find selection is not all bad news for Boris Johnson. Beyond Brexit Johnson is much closer to Biden on many issues than he ever was with Trump, including support for NATO, the Iran nuclear deal in the Paris climate accord. Frank Langfitt. NPR NEWS.

We've got a massive challenge ahead on the economy in these eland, and that's why I haven't really seen much from the government in general plans of how to revive the economy and how to get us out of they have effectively beaten the virus now twice. But they haven't actually given us any clear indication how they're going to lift us out of this because the protections for public debts for unemployment. From monetary policy, they actually scare me when you look at them many New Zealand business figures share all of skepticism is fair Point Jersey. Yes, it is because the election really did focus on cousin who it was absolutely about who stopped US getting sick and so it was actually really hard to get any coherent debate about what is the plan B if we don't get a vaccine next year, what is the retail kind? So it was all very vague that staff and. You're right. All of you got different taxi companies to me to probably but another thing I heard in Texas a lot was all well if it's between wealth and health, I'm GonNa pick health and just send a picked health. Well, of course, you know we know that that's a false dichotomy it's not health or wealth. If you country is unable to trade and you borders closed long-term, then you're not going to raise the revenue to be able to have decent hospitals. You're not going to get your school buildings. Renovated and so on, and you're not going to be getting elective surgery and people are actually going to get unhealthy. So but it was no one wanted to hear that town that was the thing. No one wanted to hear a debate about next year they just wanted to know that. Anti Cinde was gonNA look after and that was it. Yes we'll enjoys does mentioned the vaccine just interested in like most western leaders frankly, she's pretty policy on the likelihood of a vaccine in coming months but the question here is what if a readily available vaccine if it ever happens what if it's a long way off I mean for how long all of our the present measures sustainable I mean, how long can you zeal and cut itself off from the outside world? Well I think that is actually a political question not an economic run from an economic perspective I. Think it would be desirable to New Zealand to the words more quickly but can do the safely. We can still have proper border to ensure that when we opened up to the word again, we do this without importing the virus. But I think the government sticks to the precautionary principle at the moment, and that's a political decision because the public doesn't want the government do anything outspent opinion polls before election showing that more than seventy percent of New Zealanders what actually like to keep the borders Morris close and these are people who probably don't have any immediate travel plans or maybe don't have any family abroad. Heavily business to do abroad, and so for them life is quite pleasant as long as they also keep their jobson New Zealand's, and so they would rather electric continue the status quo until that vaccine arrive. So it is difficult for the government to go against this when the public is. So strongly in favor of just keeping the border shut as they are but at some stage will just have to a because some the economic consequences of this some prolonged isolation are going to be enormous Jesse is point. Absolutely, you could not get a discussion out during the election campaign about elimination versus suppression of the virus, and so it was it was almost impossible to talk about the plan. B. If the vaccine doesn't turn up which let's face it, it's unlikely tuneup and be available next year so. Realistically the from left or the right of the political spectrum. It was really hard to talk about how long do our border stay closed, and those of us myself included who were trying to say, you know look closing the borders as a six month policy not a two year policy. He can't possibly maintain a closed border and keep trade going even though we can still export milk powder and so on. But the ability for our businesses to connect with the world and so on for us to travel is just not feasible but whenever I said that I would get attacked on twitter and everywhere for being the head of a capitalist difficult. So you could not get a good debate going about this even though the w eight show for example was saying, Hey, you know strict lockdowns and we've had very strict lockdowns for lockdowns are not the best approach if you're doing a cost benefit analysis on either health or economic growth.
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.

"labor party" Discussed on People of the Pod
"The International Criminal Court announced it would launch an investigation of alleged war crimes by Hamas and Palestinian armed groups as well as by Israel included on the list of alleged crimes committed by Israel the construction of settlements in the West Bank Israeli prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu has said the icy probe would not deter deter him from further expanding. Israel's presence in the West Bank adding that no one no Israelis know Palestinians would be uprooted from their homes the long-awaited icy announcement followed a five year. Preliminary review of allegations on both sides here to talk about what the latest development means is Raphael Aren the diplomatic correspondent for the Times of Israel Raphael Raphael. Welcome back to the show. Thank you pleasure being with you again. So now you just had a very extensive interview with the prosecutor in this case and I would love to talk a little bit about that but also please forgive me. I'm not sure what changed. On December twentieth when the icy prosecutor made this this announcement wasn't she always pledging to seek accountability on both sides of the conflict was was it basically her just saying I'm not pulling the plug or yeah what what chain though. She actually made the decision to go. To the next level the ICY has by and large three stages of probes it starts with the preliminary examination. and which is the period that you referred to. It took five years for her to do that. And she's basically gathering information but she's I'm only speaking speaking to officials she's inviting witnesses but it's it's all basically on the public domain and is eighty hoping that she would decide that okay. She doesn't have have enough to open an actual investigation. What she said on December twentieth is that she intends to open a criminal investigation? But she's not exactly actually doing that right now because she's not convinced that the court actually has jurisdiction to get involved and she said before I started investigation and we start ah lengthy and costly process and then it will be shut down because Somebody will find that we don't have jurisdiction before I even start. I'm going to ask a pretrial chamber her off the court itself the court has the prosecutor's office these are the ones who do the investigation. And then it has also a pre trial chamber these three judges and they will decide to what extent the court has jurisdiction over so-called situation in Palestine. Only when they say yes you do have jurisdiction and then she will go ahead and open an actual criminal investigation and that is actually quite dramatic. Because that's a criminal process. That means that the ice is C- could theoretically cle- start issuing arrest warrants against as suspects without even knowing about it So many Israelis will think twice before they traveled to countries That are members of the SEC. Okay so now what would give the icy jurisdiction here well. So that's the big argument right now. Israeli government is arguing that the court has no jurisdiction whatsoever. So let's take a step back. Israel is not a member of the court and therefore the court has absolutely no jurisdiction over Israel now Palestine In two thousand fifteen became and member. FDIC by acceding to the Rome Statute Durham Statute is sort of the foundational document of the court and once the Palestinians were given non member state status by the UN General Assembly. They could theoretically Accede to the Rome Statute and become a member of the court in two thousand fifteen frustrated over the lack of process in the piece of progress in the peace process. They took that step and started right away asking for the prosecutor to start prosecuting Israeli alleged war crimes so these ratings are saying well. But they're still you know there's no such. The thing is a state of Palestine they should've never exceeded to the Rome. Statute certainly they are not sovereign over the territory. They claim for their state. And you can only transfer it to the courts criminal jurisdiction over your territory if you actually have sovereignty over the territory which Israel argue. They don't know taught to been sued the the prosecutor she argues that it doesn't matter whether Palestine is a state or not am for the the term purposes of the Rome. Statute it is because it was allowed to accede to the Rome Statute informally become a member of the court initially told me in the interview. It is strange. Strange that We admitted Palestine as a member but then Palestine cannot do what this court was meant to do. which is you know? prosecute and look into into war crimes committed on on these territories but now Israel is investigating its own idea forces for wrongdoing during the Gaza conflict. Right yes And even here you could argue and again The prosecutor hasn't made a decision yet. She thinks that War Crimes may be. He committed and whether Israel sufficiently investigates itself. We'll have to be determined in the investigation. You can argue that Israel is not doing it well lanark and let me just say Very briefly we have a lot to discuss in very little time but one of the alleged war crimes Israel is accused of committing is building settlements and building. Settlements is as you yourself said right now government policy so Israel kind of investigating ourselves for committing that crime. We're you know is the Israeli government Um and actually takes pride in expanding settlements right so in other words. They're certainly not going to investigate that as a crime but just the wrongdoing that might have been committed during the Gaza conflict. That's the war crimes that they would be investigating. What about Hamas are they able to or have they already begun investigating the allegations against them? No absolutely not Absurdly you know how mass takes pride in committing these war crimes and the the ACC prosecutor acute actually mentioned that one hundred page decleration that she issued on December twentieth While Israel does have some kind of mechanism to investigate its own wrongdoing. House doesn't and therefore it's going to be much easier To make a case that Hamas come to war crimes she acknowledges that clearly takes pride in attacking civilians that they are resumed actress. You got it okay. So let's back up here. There are one hundred twenty member states in the icy see. The United States is not one of them nor is Israel which you mentioned earlier. Why not why are these countries not members of the ICC? How did this all begin again? Well is there. I was actually involved in the discussions about the founding Off the ICC Israel still is in favor of an international or jurisdiction and the fact that there should be an international global institution fighting against the war crimes and mass atrocities however it was very clear early on to the Israeli government that this institution in the hake is going to taking biased. And that's why the Americans and by the way many other countries that here in the region Turkey and of course all the Arab states and Iran and none of mistakes mistakes here in the region Joined the court clear clearly because they fear that it's going to turn against them at some point which is kind of an inherent I in the in the court that the court can only investigate countries that have themselves joined the court and the real evil doers like Venezuela China and Iran and many other countries Cuba for example that I in actual need of Of War Crime Investigations. They can touch because they you know never joined the the court. Yeah so the way that it works in most cases that that Sort of African leaders Can Say Well you know. I'm African country X.. And the guy before for me he committed war crimes. Investigate him Because we joined the CA- we joined the court and we are now okay but the guys before us they were really evil dictators. That's most of the cases That the court has looked into it. We have For example Afghanistan and there's right now a preliminary investigation going on against UK and the American soldiers who allegedly committed crimes against against a local populations in Afghanistan But it doesn't seem that this is going to go anywhere Again the Americans are have threatened the icy with consequences and it seems that he is backing down from from this whole process. And so right now. The focus is really on African countries. And these really put in conflict so who has the ICC accused or tried or even convicted in recent years actually doesn't have much Success I have to say I don't have the numbers in front of me right now and it's probably acknowledged I think in the last couple years there was only running one indictment one has to understand the ACC is Is really rather toothless tiger. It creates a lot of interest and walk ramifications sound bombastic batting But they don't really have a mechanism to get people even if somebody's Accused of war crimes. They can only put you in the dock if they they get a hand on a new and somebody can just needs to a country that is not going to cooperate with the court and then that person will never will never see courtroom from the inside. So that's part of the icees baton reputation that They do a lot of investigation that do a lot of finger pointing and accumulations nations but they actually bring very few evil men and women to justice. Okay so if this toothless tiger does find that reason to proceed or one or both of these parties guilty of war crimes. What could happen? And what are the chances of ruling before the next election the next two Israeli early election you mean the next Israeli election. Yes well well I guess the next American election to well let me tell you absolutely zero and the preliminary in the preliminary preliminary investigation took five years right now. We're still in the the face where the court has to figure out whether it's going to start an investigation. No the investigation could take many long years as well as I said. It's a criminal trial. She has to reinvestigate everything from scratch. Yes to invite witnesses. She can no longer rely on publicly available information. She actually has to do a criminal trial but like in law and order and like really established facts. And that's going to take years. She will not even being office. It will be a different prosecutor and this can be expected if it ever happens to take years if not decades and this is only only the investigation now I if the investigation is concluded and they decide to proceed with a trial then you have the actual trial and again the trial. Hi will only take place if the accused alleged perpetrators of crimes show up in court now. Let's say general of the IDF. If Marsha X. is being accused of war crimes while he just doesn't show up and then nothing happened absolutely nothing happens okay. Well I know you will continue. Continue to follow this and we will continue to follow your coverage Raphael. Thank you so much for shedding some light on it. Thank you for having me Bishop..

"NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Rachel Martin much of the recent political turmoil in the United Kingdom has focused on the struggle to come up with a viable plan for leaving the EU. That's been a major stumbling block for Prime Minister, Theresa may and her conservative party. Now, the opposition labor party is facing its own critical moment, seven labour members of parliament broke off from their party on Monday. Robert, shrimp, xlii is the chief UK political commentator for the financial times. And he joins us now. Mr. shrimps, thanks for being here. Come owning. Who are these members of parliament? And why why are they leaving labor? Okay. Well, the first thing says, the none of them will be a name mean anything to anybody outside of the United Kingdom, and many of them are not named the mean anything to people within the United Kingdom, but they are relatively permanent or longstanding members of the labor party. Labour impede people on the right of the labor party who feel for a number of different reasons. But no longer what for. Then partly it is about Brexit. Brexit divide the labor party to though, not an extremely divides, the conservative party Paul about some of the polling antisemitism and bullying. That's been toll. Right. We didn't Jeremy Kobe labor party. But primarily I think it's because they take an extremely left would term which they no longer feel comfortable with any longer feel completely economic policies. They no longer feel comfortable with it security and foreign policies amending longer feel comfortable with the way, it's run. We've got a clip here of Luciana Berger, a member of parliament at a press conference announcing the split, listen here, the leadership has willfully and repeatedly failed to address hatred against Jewish people within its ranks. And it is for these reasons and many more the I have made this decision today. Where is this coming from is this is this a byproduct of the Brexit debate to Brexit? I think it's fundamentally springs from the the very very deep-rooted anti-americanism, which of the. Leadership over the late body, Jeremy Corbyn and the people around him. It says you see America as the great evil in the world. And as a result of which they have always cited with the causes. We'd have been favorable as anti-americanism with spiking America. One of these made them very very hostile to the state of Israel, and very very pro Palestinian about perfectly legitimate mainstream view, of course, but it has seeped, and they have been very very careless in of French launches. They keep to anybody who is anti Israel accepted as the friend by these people. Some of those people are deeply anti semitic, and the culture and language has bled into too much of the mainstream. Labour policy Luciana Berger who you quoted that she had to have police escort worn around our own party conference last year. Because of a threat to not all of these sets from late, but how many different right-wing threats, but I have anti semitism has been tolerated and fostered in wing of late party, which is not in control of that policy. So what difference does it make these seven people? We should note seven out of more than two hundred labor members of parliament. So it's not huge number. So what difference does it make? Well, the question is if it stays at seven, then it wouldn't make much difference at all the issues whether these van golden advanced populists. There's many many other labor and peace who share most of their views most of it lay partying would be just horrified as. As they are about Jeremy Corbyn prime minister, they're just not ready to jump. The question is all the end advance party or that he only policy is Theresa May commenting on this at all. I think I haven't seen a direct comment from Herschel certainly be enjoying it. But it's a problem for her to you because there are conservatives who are just as unhappy what happening in their party. And some of them will be a target for this new breakaway group as well. Robert trims of the financial times of thanks for your insight.

"These MP's a pretty significant figures within the labour party, there's five shadow ministers as cold him minister's, Representative of important offices from the party not in government. And these key figures who will be well known in the labor party. Well, let's hear from one of these defectors. Her name is Luciana Berger. And she says it was the culture of racism within the labor party that drove her to this. I cannot remain in policy. The I have today come to the sickening. Conclusion is institutionally auntie semitic. The leadership has willfully and repeatedly failed to address hatred against Jewish people within its ranks. Now, she's saying that there's racism within the labour party what she referring to from her perspective. It's is allegations. I guess of antisemitism. Luciana Berger herself is Jewish and she has been trolled quite viciously over the years for her religion. She has called repeatedly on the labor party to denounce various claims of antisemitism. It's an allegation that has been thrown at the labor party quite repeatedly over the last number of years. Jeremy Corbyn himself, the leader of the party very much coming from the left, and I guess when he came in. He would have been seen as quite pro Palestine not to say that that's anti semitic. But there were times before he got into the leadership that he invited for example, members of Hezbollah and HAMAs into parliament and a lot of these. Things that happened back. Then there was also a mural this. He refused condemn that was seen as anti semitic. These kinds of events or incidents that he was involved in. He has not condemned them since they've tended to follow him. So it is an allegation that sits very uncomfortably with the party and the party's seen as not having done enough about it and not having condemned antisemitism enough for burger perceived anti semitism was the reason she left the party for others. It was the sense that the labor party had failed to lead on Brexit would is the charge against the labor party in terms of its response to Brexit. Sure. So when the Brexit referendum was being held at the time, the labor party campaigned against Brexit, and they campaigned for voters to vote to remain within the EU. However at the time, the feeling was that their campaign was roll their lackluster, and Jeremy corbin's comments on it were lackluster. So the suspicion has always dogged him that Jeremy Corbyn is not. Fond of Europe, and that he's quite happy for the UK to be out of Europe since the Brexit campaign since the Brexit came in the labor party has been seen as well under. Jeremy Corbyn has been seen as being pretty lackluster. When it comes to any fight back against it. Three Somme in the houses of parliament. He wasn't seeing the taking a tough enough stance against her or indeed or breaks at deal. Many members of his own party in two ding. Interestingly the seven who have stepped away from the party and resigned today have called for a second referendum. Jeremy Corbyn has always step back on that and refused to agree to a second referendum and most labor party supporters would have been anti Brexit. So it was seen as a betrayal to them his stance on brags at over the last number of months and indeed years at this point, the changes today will that have any impact on Brexit? How it's carried out whether there's a another referendum any of that stuff. Listen, no, one has an idea. What's going to happen? Into bragg's, not only these new independent MP's or indeed the labor party Theresa May. And her own party for that matter. We're at a stage that nobody knows despite the fact where what five weeks six weeks away from when Britain is due to leave Europe and due to leave the EU. They have said that they want a second referendum. There is however only seven of them, and there is a possibility they will get more people to join their ranks. And in that case, they may get more people to vote in their favor and against whatever. Theresa May's next proposal ISM whenever the next vote is what will happen now. Nobody knows the world's Orla.

"With Yale University political science professor, Ian, Shapiro, co author of the book responsible parties because we go to the calls here briefly the parliamentary system, of course, does prevent voting the straight paralysis ticket is voters. Just did back in November. Whoever wins the parliament runs the country. They've won the parliament. They get to pick the prime minister and they get to call the shots. Now. Of course, if they mess it up, then they lose the next time out, but at least whoever's idea prevails gets to be put into effect. And there are things to be said about that that I think are good your thoughts. I do think that that that is ideally the best model, but unfortunately, the the sort of things we've been talking about this evening have also been going on in parliamentary systems where they'd be we we can party. So for instance, in the UK, which is, you know, the mother of all parliamentary systems, they have moved to direct election leaders. So for example, is this is their their analog about primaries in the labor party the membership of the party who tend to be the activists on the extremes. Like, the Jeremy Corbyn way on the left the labor party the left of most later never might British burgers. So then the parliamentary labour party though, that people in parliament found they could work with him because they couldn't support his programs and get reelected in his bed districts. So they had a a no confidence vote of one hundred seventy two two four. Thirty to get rid of him and the activists reelected him. So now if you're matching labor coming into government, which they might do because treats amazed not doing a great job. And and tell you about how they you know, they would be almost as strong as we are trying to work with that. So we're not the only people who've made a massive our democracy. I it's again, this this idea that more direct control is always better as infected that perfectly good parliamentary system, which wasn't broken and shouldn't have been fixed. Here's a call from Charlie in Sheridan, Wyoming on the Jim Bohannon show with professor, Ian Shapiro. Good evening, Charlie. Hi, JIMBO and low. Professor. I am come at vis-a-vis the Senate. Now, the professor just made a remark for the break. I think fact that how disproportionate is for Delaware remark. Case Wyoming with small population. We have two senators saves, California and New York, this was tenth of the framers. Yes. Should continue to buy and sell others of us, and that only white propertied men should vote. I mean, you're correct. That was the intent that doesn't necessarily mean that intent was sacrosanct. But but go ahead analogy is achieved through the house of representatives. The Senate is there to represent the interests of this states, individual states. And right now, if you have a Senator that takes some weird opinion, what is the recourse of the people who state nothing it's a week six years for another election, whereas in the old days as intended I think by the framers was no, no, the the legislature can call recall that Senator and say, what are you doing? You're not representing the wrote the majority opinion of our state knock it off using I would say about parliamentary procedures, I think Great Britain had a parliament of sorts before the revolution. And I don't think our framers thought too much. Well, they had a they had a parliament, in fact, one of the major problems that we had back. Then was the fact that we weren't represented in it. In fact, had the British really said, okay. You get to send elected members to parliament that that would have undercut the entire rationale of taxation without representation they had a part of it went back centuries before our American revolution. Your your your thoughts about Charlie's comments? Professor shapiro. Well, Charlie is is is he's actually right that the the the proportionality in the house, but not in the Senate was a compromise at the convention Madison was strongly against it. But it's a battle that he lost. He you know, he wanted proportionality in both houses. So you went get better representation across the board. You know, as as the disproportion that's has grown in those days. The biggest state was Virginia. And of course, now, it's California. But the the idea that we would have some states, you know, when with tens of billions of people and some with fewer than a million. I don't think the founders even thought about that that kind of proportionality and the notion that voter in in Wyoming should have sixty times the representation in the Senate as a resident of California strikes me as well flawed. We'll take some more calls and be back in.
