"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.
‘No, I'm not part of the problem’: Corbyn responds to anti-Semitism report
"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. It's site serious failings in the Labour Party leadership in addressing anti Semitism and an inadequate process for handling anti Semitism. Complaints. Well, thank you for joining us on

Please welcome Eleanor Rathbone Eleanor was born in London on May. Twelfth Eighteen, seventy two. From a young age, she grew up in the world of politics. Her Father William was a liberal member of parliament. And often entertained other politicians and intellectuals. In eighteen ninety, three at the age of twenty one. Eleanor. Left home to study at Somerville College Oxford. There, she studied classics and was allegedly nicknamed the philosopher by her peers. When Eleanor realized that her college refused to give degrees to female students, she took matters into her own hands. He joined a group of women called the steamboat ladies who sailed to Dublin. To get honorary degrees from Trinity College. After graduating eleanor worked alongside her father investigating the working conditions of Industrial Liverpool. After his death eleanor continued her work in the city she volunteered for the Liverpool central relief, society where she dedicated her time to helping families in poverty, improve and change their living conditions in the eighteen nineties. Eleanor became a supporter of the women's rights movement, which she saw as integral to widespread social reform. Eighteen ninety five, she was appointed secretary at the Liverpool Women's suffrage society as well as the women's Industrial Council. Eleanor didn't agree with radical tactics to promote women's suffrage and instead pushed a more moderate approach in nineteen. Oh six, the Liverpool City Council Open. It's elective positions. Two women in nineteen o nine eleanor ran and was elected as an independent candidate a position she held until nineteen, thirty five. In nineteen thirteen, she co founded the Liverpool Women Citizens Organization to promote the involvement of women in politics. 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. This method would pay family allowances directly to mothers, helping them to support their children and simultaneously fighting against the notion that men had to be the breadwinners. In nineteen eighteen at the end of World War, one British women over the age of thirty. Got The right to vote that same year eleanor established the nineteen eighteen club the following year eleanor became president of the National Union of Women's suffrage societies.

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

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.
UK leader: Britain at “perilous turning point,” scraps back-to-work drive, tightens restrictions amid virus resurgence
"News The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a series of new Corona virus restrictions for England, saying the country had reached a perilous turning point. In an address to Parliament, he said employees who didn't need to be at their workplaces should work from home. He's introduced 10 P.m. curfew for bars, pubs and restaurants and restricted the hospitality industry to providing only table service or takeaways. This is the moment when we must act.

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

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.

"But keep in mind, regulated utilities are entirely the creatures of the regulators their profitability their cash flow is completely dependent on what the regulators say it is. So if the regulators raise rates than their earnings and cash flow, go up if they cut rates they go down if the regulators say you don't have to pay these apparent liabilities. Then you don't if you do. So. So when people say, well, what's the company really worth aside from all of this it completely? It completely depends on what happens with the regulators. Whether they want to let it go bankrupt or not that that's the end of the the end of the day. What you have. And right now regulators are saying we don't want you to go bankrupt kit college, thank you so much for being with us kit. Colleges senior industrials and utilities analyst with Bloomberg intelligence. PG and E has more than twenty two billion dollars of debt their prices on those bonds are rising today. Although Pam I do have to wonder going forward, if perhaps von investors are not going to be as forgiving with some of these companies that can whip them around with different proclamations. I if there is a situation like this that occurs. Brexit has been on the break for a long time. But things seem to be heating up with the potential deal. Collapsing. Theresa May now prime minister of the United Kingdom trying to retain her control over parliament and get this sort of deal through before the deadline. Joining us now Brennan Brown chief economist and head of economic research at Mitsubishi UFJ securities joining us here in our eleven three oh studios. Brendan can we talk about what the pound is currently pricing in what scenario our market saying seems most likely right now there are two scenarios. And I think the main scenario it's being priced in is at some how this appeasement deal is going to get through and most likely it'll get through because they'll be some cross crossing the support from the labour party to support the deal, despite for Brexit opposition with Brexit or opposition within the conservative party. And why labor would support with deal is if? Go along with this. They add major risk of losing a lot of nationalist work in class support. And this would probably sink conservative party for the next generation so labor with ready to well out of that in many ways, I think what the pound is pricing in is spec. Too far left government under Mr. Cogan? Now, there is a better scenario scenario, number two. Churchillian type figure maybe that's an exaggeration emerges in some sort of leadership challenge in the next few weeks says fit enough is enough the Europeans have treated us terribly. They haven't readies set down in good faith in negotiated and the best. We can do is reach some interim deal for next year. And then we're way out out and unto WTO rules, and that would salvage conservative party possibly rally a lot of nationalist support. And they may even win a general election one year down the road. Well, the French finance minister said earlier today that well he said that British politicians who campaigned for Brexit. He described them, quote as liars does that help tabbies may actually reach an agreement with her own party as well as with parliament, absolutely not. But if you ask me what the main failure in home may strategy. Has been it has been right from the start not doing everything possible to get the US DO because once they realized that for Europeans, we're going to be totally obdurate as they have been Germany and FRANZ. The obvious strategy was to take advantage of anti-german president of United States, anti you pro British to do a deal and fundamentally align Britain with all American interests and policies in the Middle East and everywhere else, and may has totally failed to do that. Instead, you in fact, she's gone the opposite. She's been packing. Merckel on Iran and all these other issues as purposely to annoy President Trump, so I want to shift focus from Europe to the United States because what's moving markets today in in large part is fed vice chair rich Clarita his comments about getting to neutral, and the possibility of perhaps raising rates less frequently than previously thought because of some of the headwinds to growth, and the.

"But what we've also seen recently, for example, from Daniel Finkelstein writing in the times is that the de-selection of MP's critical of the leadership is still on the many for many constituency parties and four momentum. So we've seen a moment where there's been a consensus around certain selections, Frank fields constituency, as one example in Kate Hoey, for example, but we might be seeing further d. selections that don't build a consensus Fingleton Gog and I think it's partly mischievous. I mean, he's not. Trying to bolster the Corbin project, but it also was principled. You can be mischievous in principle at the same time thing was to say that and he applies it though to electric stent to the conservative party to that. Once you move as we have lost twenty thirty years to assist them, democratic politics, where the leaders of the parties are elected by the members. And yet the British parliamentary system means that the prime minister has to come on the support of the majority in the Commons. You have the basic full line of politics that is now our full line and the full line is exemplified in labor where too many of the MP's were Kuban twin election would not be able to support him. And yet he would have been standing to be off you, your prime minister and Finkelstein says the only logical solution to that problem is selection. If the members are choosing the leader, the members have to increasingly be able to choose the MP's to give people a real choice at election time which if you vote for this party, the person who leads it will be able. To get legislation through the Commons because I think it is really true that at the next general election with the current makeup of the parliamentary labour party. If you voted for Corbin, you wouldn't know whether he could get his program through the Commons on. That's true. That fault line is definitely a powerful one. The question, whether de-selection is a is an answer to it. Mine pressures that it would create a new hotline equally deepened sort of difficult to to bridge between basically voting public and these bubbles that become political parties. So the labour members, labor voters, basic exactly in voters, and then the big sort of thing that is the political party. So the loop then be close the membership, the MP's and the leadership would all be fairly United, I suppose. But the accent which they relate to the wider public would be a very open question. And that's what makes Finkelstein argument mischievous because he thinks that were the logic to be followed through labor within lose assumes that message becoming on electrical and the executive mend. Ship of these parties is really reflective of the y. devoting. We've talked before, it's not too many extents. That's a risky bet for parties. There's another sense in which someone who's not a commencement to take that line as mischievous in that if MP's who are worried about de-selection because of their stance towards Corbin, think cleavage between a left labor membership and labour voters. Then the appeal of breaking away into a new party which so far seemed to come to nothing will start to rise and we've seen Chuck him, say it's nonsense that their plans for him to join the new party, but it's clear that the time isn't quite right. I mean, that time might come fairly soon depending on the progress of the Brexit negotiations..
