Fresh update on "labor party" discussed on John Batchelor

"Malcolm Hoenlein is here to help me. We start with the villains of villains. That is the remaining regime in Tehran. Having lost Sulamani and now far cassata. It's a matter of time before nature works, its course or some other actor to remove. These threats to the region. Malcolm the comment about Iran we heard this evening is that the regime is rattled. Shaken, puzzled. Everybody's blaming everybody else. That's a good thing. But does it suggest you? There's a timeline here, Malcolm that things are falling apart to a degree that we didn't even think the money could do. Yes, John. I think there there is a lot of change in the offing, and especially because of the pending election for president that will take place in in June. With the hard liners emerging more and more powerful. You see it in the conflict it reaction. To the administration the prospects of their relationship they are talking about on the one hand joining and no preconditions, then demanding compensation from the U. S and verification of all the sanctions before us rejoins, and they rejoined the JCP away. They talk about doubling the nuclear budget. They talked about breaking all the agreements to allow inspections. And then Rowhani came out and condemns. It s oh, it's very hard to see the clear strands right now. The Muellers Once the nuclear deal, they understand that the sunset clauses removed the restrictions on their abilities to develop their nuclear program and that it's harder to to hold their leaders accountable. Or their maligned behavior in the region and around the world, and this is one of the issues that has come up about how they counted. Hegemonic goals is part of us does and the administration some people have speculated or said From the press prospective participants in administration that they will look at all of these issues but joined the JCP away first and then used it as the basis to negotiate. Um But this will have a lot of impact on the countries in the region who look a scant set A lot of these developments. You see the Arabs saying Don't to the new administration helped them get rid the of Hezbollah. The Lebanese people want amount, and they talk about the fact that says, Well, I was the only one was 20,000 soldiers on the ground. They lost 4000 Syrians, saying, Why is that in the interest of the Lebanese people and that they don't want to see repetition of the mistakes that were made in terms of how they appeased? They call it appeasement of Iran. And the impact that it had in Lebanon, giving his well a greater and greater influence and the fact that they're coming out more more strongly on it and there and other places. Talking about the impact of the Iranian Iran's program and aggressiveness and the fact that they get money that will enable them again to build up his villa and Hamas and to start paying salaries again to these evil forces. The Abraham accords. Malcolm the Last time we talked, there was a delegation from Israel in Bahrain. I believe, and there was about Iranian delegation in Jerusalem. So can we expect this to be a commonplace occasion from now on? I think it's in. It will be increasingly in evidence. I think that the peace would you a year. But rain is exceeding what people's anticipated even declaring the peace of the people that the warm relationship as opposed to the peace with Egypt and Jordan. The Bahrainis are opening an embassy. Israel's gonna open CNN and monomer and in beret. The delegations now have visited both countries and their foreign minister of you, A of bartering was in Israel met with the prime minister appeared with a press conference. Saudi Arabia is allowing overflights. S so we're seeing cultural areas being exploited at cultural exchanges, many business opportunities and even beyond that the relationship between the peoples That we see and the reaction to that in Syria, Saudi Arabia, for instance, to the killing of Masada, that very supportive and this is moving, too reflective of this general change that I would say is happening is Sudan, on the other hand, seems to be backing off of its commitment because they're trying to leverage. Their agreement to the US giving them immunity from the charges on and cases filed against them for the support of terrorism, But within the country, we're still seeing people calling for public for publicly calling for cooperation and joining and saying That the that they're not gonna let their hands be tied by by the Palestinians that they won't trade. They want security coordination of medical cooperation. They see the potential benefits, but the government has other agendas. Anti Semitism. Malcolm I'm reading a new history called All Against all By Paul Jankowski and historian. It's about the year 1933 and what I learned Malcolm is that every one of the countries that became combatants in the second war Knew about the persecution of Jews knew about anti Semitism. Not only in Germany but across Europe. And it was not extraordinary tooth. Um, they regarded it is part of civilization. And Malcolm. We know in that in that event, what happened is civilization collapsed, fell apart because they ignored what was in front of them. Are we witnessing that sort of indifference again? Malcolm, ignoring anti Semitism and risking civilization falling apart. For too long we've seen especially in Europe. This case the tolerance was sort of the labor party was a prime example in Britain. And today again they had this week that head of the British Labor Party criticized Corbyn for his power and 70 Semitism if not stoking it. And the and its presence in the statistical increases by doubling year after year the number of attacks including physical assaults and actions that are being taken by government, some that threaten Had kosher the supply of kosher meat or or other Jewish practices. The contrary to that, this week, the U. The European Union's main body of for the 27 countries adopted a very strong A declaration on anti Semitism that called for a uniform approach in the international community against any form of hostility towards Jews.

"Reports quote. Labor has suspended its former leader, Jeremy Corbyn, after he said anti Semitism in the party was overstated. Following a damning report from the equality watchdog. The move is likely to ignite a civil war in the Labour Party. Korben condemned his suspension as a political intervention and said he would strongly contest the action. Mr. Corbin gave an interview then to the Guardian newspaper. What I said today Wass that anti Semitism is unacceptable in any form. What I said exactly what I said was the numbers of cases in the public perception had become overstated The existence of the problem I fully acknowledge, which is Why I took action to end the problem in the party by introducing a process to get anti seen lights out off the party. No, I'm not part of the problem. The problem is anti Semitism, historically anti Semitism in the presence on the fear that many people have off being under attack at the synagogue, or, indeed mosques, temples and lots of other places within our society. We need to tackle racism in every conceivable form. In our society and that's former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. The Guardian Story goes on to say that quote the Equality and Human Rights Commission report found labor responsible for unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination over anti Semitism.

When World War One broke out eleanor organized association to help wives and other dependents. She continued that work when soldiers returned home, she saw mothers were struggling to provide for families and advocated for the installment of a family wage system.

NZ election: why voters chose 'health over wealth'

"Into mania in. New Zealand. Tonight. New Zealand has shown the Labor Party, its greatest support and at least fifty years. End For that. I only had two simple words. Thank you. Well that was prime, minister? I done this she celebrating her emphatic election victory last weekend. Now the significance of the Labor Party landslide. It's not just that it's seen as a reward for her decisive response to the COVID crisis. It means New Zealand now has its first single-party government in decades. So what does the mandate main for new? Zealand's economic landscape as it faces its worst recession in nearly a century. We'll deliver a progressive transformation across the ditch. What happens if New Zealand does not sort ad its economic challenges quickly. trans-tasman cousins could I become fouled state? All of the heart, which is executive director of the new. Zealand initiative and Josie. PAGARINI is the executive director of the Council for International Development both a based in Wellington all of Josie welcome to. Radio National. Hello Tom. JC How do you account for Cinderella Dunes emphatic victory. Well, I mean you've got to say the popularity is genuine people lover. She's like a superstar she goes into to shopping malls and gets mobbed but I think you'd say you'd have to say to that that election campaign was incredibly disciplined Labor wanted a covid election. They wanted election that was about who stopped US getting sick not who's going to get us back to work and they succeeded in getting that they also wanted election that was focused not on labor, not particularly on policy, but almost entirely on just cinder. So if you the completely unscientific focus. Group in the Texas, you'd ask a taxi driver who you voting for, and let's say I'm voting for just under the all of a juicy. He reflects the Conventional Wisdom Abacha in Dorado and that her aggressive handling off covered and not to mention her response to the mass shooting of Muslims in in Christchurch earlier last year the gun control measures she put in place all that explains Justin, Dryden's remarkable political popularity. She's also received widespread global price for being a stateswoman who's kept New Zealand you nodded even in the face of multiple crises, your not fanned. Why? Well. First of all, I would agree with our choice just as remarkably popular and. This scenes from her election campaign were quite telling wherever she turned up. They were hundreds of people around her celebrating her. My experience with taxi drivers though is a bit different, maybe different taxi companies are us. Last The last few times I had known taxi drivers They complained that their businesses stoned at the city's undying out that we are not recovering properly from the crisis. That business is simply not what it used to be an typically detect Texas. Of course when I'm flying from Wellington to Auckland, and have to get to the CD and you can see the traffic in the city, the city looks kind of dead. 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.

UK leader: Britain at “perilous turning point,” scraps back-to-work drive, tightens restrictions amid virus resurgence

"The prime minister of the UK announced new pandemic restrictions to help get the Corona virus under control. Mr Speaker. We will spare no effort in developing vaccines treatments. New forms of mass tested. But unless we palpably make progress, we should assume that the restrictions I've announced will remain in place. For perhaps six months. Great. Britain had been making the opposite of progress after a summer when life largely returned to normal Corona virus numbers in the UK Rose, NPR London correspondent Frank Langfitt is living all of this. Hey there, Frank. Hey, Steve. What of the restrictions and how big a difference is it? Yeah, it's one of things is sort of a curfew for pubs, bars and restaurants are going to have to close at 10 P.m. Bar's Johnson also telling people to work from home if they can to avoid spreading the disease, which is a reversal of the government's position. This is coming after we're up to about 6000 Day in terms of cases, and this is what Johnson also had to say in the House of Commons today. This is the moment when we must act. If we can curb the number of daily infections on DH, reduce the reproduction rate toe one Then Then we we can can save save lives lives protected protected in in a a chest chest on on the the most most vulnerable vulnerable and and shelter shelter the the economy. economy. And And what what he's he's saying saying here. here. Steve Steve is is the the UK UK needs needs to to do do this this now now to avoid the kind of lock down that we saw back in March, which devastated a lot of businesses here, Okay, reducing the reproduction rate to one. That's a statistic he wants each new person on average tow infect less than one new person, although just saying the pub should close it. 10. Is that really a big enough change to make a difference? No, Steve. Most people don't seem to say that I see it that way. And I will include my daughter, Catherine in that she actually works our neighborhood pub and I talked about it this morning. And she says, you know, Late at night. People do get drunk, They become affectionate and there's a lot of ignoring of social distancing, so it will help to close down a little bit earlier, But last call there was at 11 o'clock anyway, so we'll be cutting time, much in that in that pub, and she doesn't think it's going to make that much of a difference, nor, frankly, I think to a lot of people here in England who have heard these measures today. I guess it does make some difference of people do work from home instead of going into the office, if somewhere and that will help. I mean, I think that I think that that will help some a lot of people that we're not going in right now, anyway, a lot of people out of convenience and otherwise they're staying out of London. What's the scientific community saying about these measures? I think something that it needs to go further than what the Gover what Boris Johnson is talking about. Other measures could include no mixing of households or a locked down for a couple of weeks that would try to put the brakes on the virus. It's clear that the government's deeply worried about the economy and doesn't want to go that far right now because the economy's been improving, actually Steve in the past couple of 23 months, and it doesn't want that stop. Now you go into hibernation, so to speak for another six months, according to Boris Johnson, is the country ready, though, if there is a big second wave It's better In some ways, you know, they figured out ways to use steroids to cut the fatality rate. And so that's been very positive. But on the testing front, we don't have the kind of testing system that we hope to many many months ago and cure Starmer. He's the leader of the opposition Labour Party, and today this is what he had to say to Johnson. We warned the promise two months ago that testing need to be fixed by the autumn, but the government didn't listen. They pretended it wasn't a problem. They didn't act quickly enough. Now the testing system isn't working just when we need it. And I got to tell you, Steve, this is a critique you here across the country. Most people I know are stunned that after all these months, the government has not been able to build a testing system that will meet demand.

Boris Johnson faces Brexit revolt in parliament.

"I'm Anthony Davis. The European Union on Monday ramped up pressure on UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to step back from breaking the brexit divorce treaty. Delaying a key decision on London's euro clearing justice. He faces a rebellion in the British parliament. The European Union says Johnson's plan would wreck trade talks and propelled the United Kingdom toward a messy brexit while former British leaders have warned that breaking the law is a step too far that will tarnish the country's image. The House of Commons will vote on moving the internal market bill which the EU has demanded London scrap by the end of the month two, its next amendment stage after a debate that Johnson will introduce. As Johnson prepared to try to persuade lawmakers that he's planned to explicitly break international law was worth supporting a derivatives industry source said the European Commission had delayed a decision on euro clearing. Johnson who has a majority of eighty in the lower house of parliament faces a growing revolt.

Boris Johnson returns to work

"Now we begin the show here. In Britain. Boris Johnson has returned to work after recovering from cove nineteen. The British. Prime Minister's illness was severe enough to send him to intensive care for several days. A personal experience that he likes to being physically assaulted by an unexpected. An invisible mugger. Joining me now is Carol. Walker is a political analyst and former BBC political correspondent Carol. What else was Johnson keen to emphasize in his first speech since his return to work? Well I think the big point that he was making was that he was back in control fully recovered and I think he was trying very hard to convey the sense of figure and vm optimism which has always been such a big part of his character and his leadership but he also I think trod very difficult line because I think whilst he was trying to convey a sense of optimism a sense that this huge effort that everyone has put in in order to stick to those very tight restrictions at staying at home to try to prevent the spread of the corona virus. He also I think wanted to try to lower expectations about when and by how much those restrictions might be lifted so he made the point very strongly that the British people should be praised and thanked for their efforts but he was insisting that if the restrictions were lifted too soon than that would reach a second peak and that would cause further damage to people's lives but also to the economy which of course is suffering enormous damage through the lockdown. Well also joining us on the line is Lance Price. He's the former director of communications at number ten Downing Street. When Tony Blair was Prime Minister Lance? Obviously there'll be a huge amount of meetings. We know that that Cobra's already taken place with Johnson. What do you believe the government will be discussing know? What will the approach very much now looking to what Boris Johnson yesterday described the second phase of the crisis and and in many ways. That's the most difficult for ministers to deal with. We know that Boris Johnson was reluctant at the outset to impose a tough lockdown restrictions. But he saw the lights. If you like and and eventually did that. But it's it's much harder to stop to lift those restrictions and it is imposed them in the first place. Because you have to decide when and where you could modify the restrictions and that's going to be the central parts of discussion between ministers in the coming days and we're told an announcement some sort expected before the end of the week. So do you look at certain sectors of the economy that businesses? That were allowed to reopen. Or do you look at certain sectors of the population and say that's an age perhaps though geographically people can Stop to Mingle goal go out more and have more social interactions of one sort or another. I do you do that then. You have the really difficult job of selling that to the to the population at laws. Because if we're all following the same rules that's one thing if there's some rules for some people and different bills for others. It's much much harder self administered Carol. There's been a lot of criticism that the government really isn't sharing any of this information not enough information with the Public Johnson to talk about transparency. Do you think that we will begin to see more of the workings in the science that these decisions will be based on what I think? They will certainly try to make an effort to show that that is what they are doing. I think what we've seen over the last almost four weeks since Boris Johnson has been ill and recovering is the slight sense of vacuum and a government that was reluctant to show even the sorts of changes that it was thinking about for fear that the public would get carried away launch latch onto that and that the number of deaths in the number of infections would not then start to come round. It was interesting that Boris Johnson yesterday made the point that he was going to bring in the new labor leaders. A Kiss Donna and other political leaders I think that is important for the government because it wants to try to bind in potential opposition to the changes because as long says this is going to be very very difficult were already seeing a some signs of real resentment for example amongst the over seventy been told that they're going to have to be shielded that they brought to stay at home. There are of course some over seventy year olds who are incredibly. Fit Run marathons and so on and feel this all patry decision to say to older people. You are at risk you must stay at home is simply not fair and many of them we know are also missing contact with close members of their family that may be one of the areas where the government will try tentatively to try to ease the restrictions somewhat. But I think that point that Lance was making about the public is a very important one. I think the government really wants to try to take the public with it. The danger is if you start trying to say certain. Sections of the population can Now have greater freedom to do some of the things that they enjoy doing to make contact with other family members to go back to work and so on whereas other members of the population were you. Divide that by age or by geographical location cannot have those restrictions lifted lifted. I think that is very very difficult to sell. And that is why it looks to me. More likely that they will look at areas of the economy businesses. And so on and look which of those can be allowed to reopen. Whilst retaining the social distancing measures in order to try to at least contain any increase in those figures on infections sadly death lance is the opposition Labor Party under the new leadership of Sakir Stammer on the same page as the government. Well they all in the sense of backing the government's restrictions and instructions to the public but they have been putting pressure kissed on the right from day one of his leadership. Say there's been saying to the Prime Minister and two other ministers that you've got to be much more open with the public about your thinking. So he called on his first day for an exit strategy and he won't he's had the public deserve to be treated like grownups on that we should be told what the possible routes out of. This might be so that we can have a grown up discussion about that. I and I think the Labour leader has made it clear that he's going to give constructive oppositions he's not going to oppose parole position's sake but he does know that at the end of all. They are going to be very very difficult. Questions for the government to onset of ministers to answer whether it's on the provisional protective equipment so testing and all the rest of this and and he's not abdicate the role of opposition in order to get finished as a a a free ride in even in the depths of crisis A meanwhile the the daily corona virus briefings continue but with a slightly different formats. Carola government's not taking questions from the public will make a difference. Well I think this is part of that effort to try to show that they are transparent this effort to try to show that they really want to take the public along with them as this virus continues and as the restrictions look likely to continue in some form or another for many months to yesterday. We had the first of questions which are submitted by the public of course. Thousands were submitted and there was an independent polling order organization brought in to choose which question would be selected. We heard from one a citizen in skipped in Yorkshire. Who was asking when she'd be able to see her grandchildren again. And I think that although this was an important gesture towards allowing the public some sense that they're having a say in all this it has to be said that none of those present were able to give her any kind of clear ideas to win. That would happen. The scientists world saying well it slightly depends on the fingers. It's slightly depends on a when those infection rate start. Continue to come down. The government was saying well. We are looking at this in the round. We don't want to take risks with the population hancock. The Health Secretary was insisting that he didn't want to take risks with people's lives and yes I think it's important for the government to be seen to be listening to what the people are saying but the crunch point is going to come when it comes out with those decisions to what if anything is going to change and we see the response to that I mean because he made a handcart made a great point yesterday of saying that they don't see questions before they're actually asked them during the the briefing live. It would seem to me. That might make more sense for them to have an idea of what the questions were so they would have the answers. Yeah perhaps they might have been able to give linen skipped in a bit clearer answer to her question but I think they're trying to make the point that they already unprepared to take on an address any of the questions that people have now. There is a sense that this is a gesture. One question Once a day two a government minister the particularly government minister who is holding that news conference Easily of course a very limited say in what is happening. But I think this is part of them trying to show that they're open trying to demonstrate the transparency which Boris Johnson was very keen to talk about. And what you've seen is as launch was mentioning this pressure on the government to show the sorts of things it's talking about people have drawn comparisons with Nichola Sturgeon Scotland's first minister who put out a document about the government's approach. When you look through it to be perfectly honest didn't say a great deal more than the sort of information that we've got in the five tests which the government has in the covering the whole of the UK has set out which are getting guide it when it decides water win restrictions can be lifted but she had made the point of bringing out a lengthy document talking about various options. And I'm sure that that is the sort of thing that we certainly will see As we go through this we we know. Boris Johnson is chairing unimportant cabinet meeting on Thursday. We know Thursday is also very important date when the government has said that it hopes to hit one hundred thousand tests a day for frontline workers. Those are all being targeted front line workers. At the moment even yesterday was still many tens of thousands of that but I think what we get towards the end of the week the government will want to at least signal where it intends to go next in as we continue to where it tends to go next in terms of exactly which restrictions are going to be lifted. Who's going to be allowed to have those greater freedoms but I think that they will stress out all of this that if those infection rates start to climb up again then there is always the risk that the restrictions will simply have to be reimposed and overriding all of this. That is something that the government does not want to do lance just finally very quickly from you. How much other businesses being done? Brexit Brexit is still carrying on. Of course there's the real question about whether or not at the end of the period should be extended because can you deal with two major disruptions to the economy at one time but the government sticking to their line that they are going into. We'll transition has come to an end at the end of this year. Of course there is a whole boss range of other business which is still very home and sometimes the news but I wonder what would have been that bulletin. If you haven't been to the virus there's no still happening. Thanks very much. Indeed that was launched price and Carol

"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. Barry speaking to us from London. Thanks. Thanks, Carl this weekend Britain, mourned, one of its most cherished writers..

"That motion will be debated tomorrow. So this house can give verdict on the shell incompetence. Jeremy carbon. He's not next prime minister could be and it's an interesting thing is is that. Alright. If he fails today in this motion, she's been given three day. She comes back on Monday says okay? This is my plan b. And if it's actually nothing different than substance, then the labor party, the opposition labor party say, okay, another vote a no confidence they can get. They can they can do that every week for the next seven weeks. So eventually if she doesn't pull a rabbit out of a hat. She may well be gone in the coming coming weeks or months, and how far left is Jeremy Corbyn for our listeners who aren't familiar with his political positions. In American parlance, you had to be closest to say, thank you back to the last election. A Bernie Sanders something about ilk. Exactly. And of course, this country's gone to ten years about steady people are fed up to the IT. And if you look at the again, it's probably a similar thing in America right now, you look at the the wage and not only the wage, but the wealth gap, you know, the top one percent, I've been raking it in for the past decade and wages have been going. Absolutely nowhere for the ninety nine percent of the worker bees. And they're pretty fed up, and you can smell it out there on the street. They're ready for change here. Tom rivers ABC news in London. Tommy only about thirty seconds left. If they had to vote all over again with the people in the UK vote in favor of Brexit again. You raise an interesting point. If you had a leader that actually would deliver a clean break from Europe. They probably would given the fact that they've been handed a Brexit Bill that really doesn't fit that if you will. That project they might just actually vote again in a second referendum against getting out of Europe. This this this particular plan does not fit the original question that is at the core at the hub of this whole issue. She's come back with a plan that doesn't answer the question. All right. ABC news correspondent Tom rivers in London. Thanks a lot. What a mess over there. And it really is. When we come back.

"Party's director of communications under Tony Blair last. Welcome to the program. What does all this mean in practice? What what does it mean? It's a very good question. Leaders of the main part is now arguing over meaningless oats. And this is absolutely a piece of parliamentary tomfoolery by the leader of the labour party. He hasn't had the courage to put down a motions of no confidence in the government, and that has a constitutional significance that if it was lost by the government would potentially lead to a general election. Instead all his done is put down emotional, no confidence in the prime minister. Which has no constitutions of what's. However, it was simply been excuse for another day of to Jeremy Corbyn. The labour leader saying you'll rubbish and Theresa May saying no, I'm not and he gets his absolutely nowhere. When the really really important issues to be debated in parliament. So what is the point the point is to demonstrate or seek to demonstrate? But I don't think it'll work to rezone supporters that he is keeping the government on the ropes. But of course, he's not doing that at all because as as head it's completely meaningless exercise and a waste of time. And it's a complete absence of leadership from the leader of the of the labor party. And I think people saw through that very very quickly. And, but you know, Jeremy Corbyn, the labour leader is doing the mirror image. If you like what trees amazed to which is delaying delaying delaying the crunch point. And in his case, the crunch point is deciding coming off the fence and deciding whether or not he. He is in favor. Favour Brexit or not whether or not given that he can't provoke a general election throw, no confidence vote in the dozens whether he's going to go to a plan b position for the labor party, which the majority of MP's and his party members want to be another referendum. Exactly, it's it's really complicated situation. What do you think decided to table this motion of no-confidence now instead of say last week when may announced that she was going to postpone that crucial vote on Brexit plant? I think he was coming under such pressure to put forward a meaningful. No confidence vote just to go over it. Again, a meaningful. No Constance would have been a no confidence vote in the government. And he was under such pressure to do that that he felt that he had to budge and he's come up with this sort of. It is ludicrous actually a ludicrous or a hassle house, which is a no confidence motion in the prime minister. Which even if it was passed would have no impact whatsoever. And it won't be passed because we know that the hard line, Brexit tears and the Democratic Unionist Party from northern. Ireland will come back in behind the prime minister, it'll unite shaky coalition temporarily and at the end of the day, we will have moved not one or two fold Kobe seems to be in any case under pressure to push for a further vote of no confidence in the government as a whole that is meaningful word. What do you? What do you think he's going to do that? Eventually when I wish he would because although I think he would lose that vote, and therefore the government would survive that would take the option of a general election off the table, and the labor party has been hiding behind the pretends that they can provoke a general election, and this keeps their supporters happy, whether they leave supporters or or remain supporters, and we know that the labor party, and certainly amongst labour voters are divided just as conservative voters are divided on that and he's trying to keep all wings of the party. If you like together. Behind him. But it's it's it's it's wearing very very thin as of a near thought an inability to take the really difficult decisions. Do you think Jeremy Corbyn will eventually have to become clearer when it comes to his stance regarding bricks unto what should be done in this country..
