I. warming up to Brighton no has he I think you know he is he has made an idiot of himself many times as has trump no doubt about it two all white guys to old white guys and let's just address that for a minute I mean this is a grueling grueling job and I think that even younger men would have trouble keeping up with that with this with the rigors of this job and look at some of these presents a we've had they go into their young men that come off they look like they're a hundred yeah what are you going look like your honey how do you come out of that job if you do I I I just don't understand how this is the best we have it just doesn't make any sense to me this just can not be the best we have best and brightest is it is it just the fact that by holding the job is so because Biden's been there is it so intoxicating that they just can't not do it yes really okay I think that's the answer right okay I mean there's only forty some presidents is a pretty unique job yeah but it's not for me it's not about you you're supposed to be working for us and these guys will still work right these guys seem to make it about them and I don't understand how can I trust you to do what's best for me if all you do is talk yeah I don't know I'm just throwing that all politics is so frustrating because you know we've gone through these last few decades of elections it's it's so personality driven it's less about the work that that's being done and you know whether it's the rise of trump does contribute to that are made it worse yet probably we saw what happened in the in the debates on the other side of the aisle last year on on the Republican side we see a president who actually for once the the truth sometimes lack of truth yeah which are gonna talk about number two of the four attempts we get what we get work were voting for these people we we the collective we have voted for this president right at least the majority of the states that matter and we the collective we decided that probably Joe Biden Bernie Sanders of the two logical choices at this moment and for all the sexism talk these were democratic voters voting for their candidate sure and I thought Democrats were supposed to be the party of wokeness hello there the other all inclusive and all understanding and all accepting while your party your voters decided that Amy called Afshar Kamilla Harris moons in not Tulsi Gabbard put to some garlic Warren I'm missing somebody but you know all these women candidates didn't cut the mustard weren't cutting the mustard and I don't know I don't exactly know why and as we get down to the wire and it looks like trump and Biden trump is not going to hold back at all and this is kind of what he is I don't know of Biden's ready for this because I think trump this is what he is made of and this is what he feeds off we're gonna find out and Biden I think is not as ruthless as trump has and I think big trouble do anything anything to get a personal thing fascinating world of politics are gonna have a heck of a twenty twenty yeah it's gonna be it's gonna be a roller coaster no doubt about it we're gonna hit the crest of that big posters out of yeah and we're just getting ready to just call now the fun starts as they say well and I don't you know as we the fund does start now because I'm really looking forward to the DNC coming here I think it's going to be a fascinating process to witness but also we got to take a look at what the corona virus is going to do to that how they can get ready for that how are they going to get people in there to do the stuff if you're hosting a big events and we don't want to touch that asked that same question about the DNC if you're also a big events I would imagine that your your boards or committees are are are fairly worried at this point hi you have this in all work out right even the text you sent a great great think about the DNC your volunteers if there's a community wide risk of exposure do you think you want to volunteer for something like that is that something you would sign up for that's gonna be a tough go they're going to spray that whole place down no seriously they're going to have to go in like they're going to need a tanker truck a Lysol and and just knock the whole thing down eggs right I mean I don't I don't know how else are going to do it because then you've

They keep on predicting that if the polls says they are you there is an election they can get anything between fourteen and one hundred M which sounds yeah. That's what keeps saying that's their modeling is saying. I think hundred is very very very topic but you know even though that explaining policy as if they want to enter govern on their own in realistic to him reasonable chance so they could end up holding the balance of power and in much the same way I trump since conservative opposition very much as the brexit minded party they are very much remain party and this new pledge to revoke Article v Stop Brexit in the admittedly unlikely event they win. General election cements them in in voters mind you come last year. This is my very first conference. People who say it's different to other conferences and very much because Labor until we conference is a quite cool put in very serious lip spoiler third party.

MP's people which is actually this evening very popular event and do you have to go. It's very apparent. Yes I do have to. We're we're going to have to go. It would be fair to say than the Liberal Democrats had a turbulent few years and twenty seventeen gene. They won just twelve seats across the country as a pro-european.

Positively is everywhere. This conference eighth on the floor of the auditorium venture mean gives his maiden speech. This brings me to emergencies opposition. I know a bit about the opposition and it's in the meeting room where standing-room-only Feliciana Lisa verge of taking questions from delegates. It does feel like these new. MP's really boosting morale way just outside the exhibition fishing center and lots of good milling around here. What do you think about the new he's coming from Labour from the conservatives. I think it's really funny that some Jima Rats leader Conservative foty now. He's one of us but then again I mean he did run lead with the Conservative Party on a second referendum Renton platform which was bulls by did speak to some people who were more cautious about the party becoming a home philosophy. MP's is this your first time at this at this conference. Does the party failed different. Does it feel more exciting or show me yeah. There is a huge rati here rushing different people there's also the damage is people with all signs of different ideas. Sometimes the variety is hard to take in because because there are some quite free market-oriented people and they're the opposite like me guaranteed some of the new. MP's door joint sometimes the weekend or don't actually know enough about them historic records. You'll be welcome them into the Party and I'm worried but it may be the there was a lot of controversy about Philip me. WHO's record is questionable but I would be in a national crisis absolutely what people actually do meet findlay. He wasn't too recently a conservative. MP until he crossed the floor of the Commons enjoying the Liberal Democrats are the largest spoke to said there's been a lot of criticism of some of his views and his voting record particularly of his stunts on LGBT rights and an amendment he made to the Immigration Bill in two thousand fourteen so very interested to meet him and just find out how it's open going in the past couple of weeks conference. Hola Tory party conference was like stage-managed rally wasn't democracy in action here they're actually discussing and members on the floor and voting and and yes that can have challenges for for the management for the Party and things. That's well documented but you know what I'd rather have it like this. Then the way my former boss he did it and EV. Oh Oh the MP's of join the temps in recent weeks. I think yours was probably the most dramatic events is in to the party. Now you cross the floor in the Commons. Wall Lawrence Johnston was honest. Feverish Irish Irish are old and need watched. His majority disappear foyer is is he made that journey why did you did you choose to do it like that. I think when the whole prorogation business this started towards the end of August undeniably that accelerated my thinking the needed to be a you're just he's not doing this moment. This is not right yeah. It's been but thinking when I was watching got. I imagine you being quite nervous just seconds before you knew you were going to do it and then old the jazz and I wear unfortunate to wear I watch and I sat down next to Chase Winston about full foam and this is so after I sat down my my started to vibrate and I thought that was flashing. I mean I hadn't ever seen do this before I don't really understand my entirety and and I looked at it and it was telling me that my pulse rate was running at more than one hundred twenty and I wasn't moving which obviously is a doctor okay so I was deep breathing reading for a bit chart to manage my post seriously yes. It was not easy. It has been a lot of coverage of your voting record cord in the past and one day's news coverage. They've been coverage of of misrepresentation of my views. There are issues when you've been other party. You've been whipped vote for things. Do you think that immigrants should be tested for HIV or Hepatitis B. The country remind viewers was better that people coming into this country we knew the status so that they can be treated and they'll say that we could prevent further infection spreading and and that's not how it's being portrayed in Corson's drew upon my medical experience when you've been confronted the reality of a sub Saharan African patient presenting with an AIDS defining illness in general practice this this person not knowing that they were HIV positive advance so therefore they've been leading a life like anyone else without any knowledge if things. I didn't know your listenership understand what probing probing amendments are. Probing amendments are are not to be pushed to vote to. This wasn't about legislation. This was about trying to provoke debate but above all the motivation Asian was protecting patients protecting public health and I hope in Tyne enough people understand the head of the Liberal Democrats. LGBT group resigned when you join the party. How did you feel about and are you having conversations with. LGBT members within within. Ah Yes I'm having conversations and I had one. This morning. Agreed with people going to have another one this afternoon. Throughout all of this.

"lawrence johnston" Discussed on Monocle 24: Culture with Robert Bound
"Hello and welcome to culture with me. Robert found this week we're going book collecting, as you know, we're big advocates of the printed page here monocle and we're certainly not alone around the world. Bibliophiles hunting down. First edition signed copies and limited runs of their favorite books. There might be a glass cabinet and museum sitting in storage awaiting auction or hidden in the back of dusty shows and small on the seeming bookshelves. In some cases, rebels can sell millions and said, well, the story on the page might be valuable enough. The most readers for others. The object self is far more people love Shakespeare, so they wanna see the first time that shit's was printed. I've seen people hold this reap. So join us as we hunting with experts archivists curator's collectors and booksellers in all of the world on culture with me from it bound. Bound. In Hong Kong funding. Read bookshop in Asia can be trickier than tracking down. I addition folio our Hong Kong correspondent James chambers pays a visit to lock man rare books and sits down with its every night, founder, Lawrence Johnston. Nearly all of our customers based in Asian. And I would say a majority of our in Hong Kong, we don't sell on the internet, then fat. We will usually discourage someone from buying from us if we haven't met them, they haven't been introduced to us. And then we have people that fly in who are the used to work here, come here for business meetings and we'll come to see us when they get a chance over. I again, visit them like a doctor. I go to the offices and I visit with a suitcase full of books. I will visit customers in Hong Kong with this big Gladstone bag. I suppose it looks like my big leather bag. Guess I'll do that but overseas? No, I'll usually a ship a by then I'll ship, but it's nice. I walk past people waiting in line to visit, you know, the Mandarin of some financial group, and I might spend two hours with much the frustration of everyone else was we put the books out on the border table and. And they like that. I do private book dealer. Are you the classiest door to door book salesman in the world? You take. Yeah, but no dictionaries. Most of your books appear to be from the west from Europe? Yep. Do you collect any eastern literature or are you planning to or is that just not what the business office out of knowledge? It's Matt of knowledge and academe it too. I have access to bibliographic his and into specialists in different areas. If I need it to verify that a book published in the sixteen hundreds is what it says. It is the first edition, how many copies were printed, I have to pageant and make sure that everything is in order to get that I need to have access to records written about that book. So for example, all of a twist that I can pretty much tell you which day that I wish set of three volumes of twist Republicans about the tenth day of publication because they changed letters and words and bits fell off the printing press, and you go through it all, but that's because it's been written up. And red fruit over century. And that's documented with works in Chinese. For example, there's very little research that's being done, or even collectors who've written about that collections in order for me to verify that what comes through my dole is exactly what I meant describing and sell it. And so without that, then I can't deal in that area. There's not enough knowledge about out of all the books. All the lovely books you have here, which one is your favorite? My favorite at the moment. She, no, this is Hong Kong. So normally that's not the question I get us Nomi. The question I get is which is the most expensive book. You can also onto that too. If you'll you'll question is is much better and it's one of the things we have to fight through here, like is book and investment? No, not financially. So. So at the moment, Harry's cocktail book off flies and cocktails. By Harry win love this little book. Let me get nineteen twenty seven. So Harry started this bar in Paris, which became Harry's Bo nineteen twenty S Hemingway all the rest of them and wrote the sydell Koto book little smokeout, but with fantastic illustrations and it's dedicated to the baffler club and even little songs for the barfly club in Harrah's well and pictures of of the club. And it's such a rare little creature. So that's one. And then the current favorite is this and I have to get my glasses title is right. This is Jane. Collier seventeen fifty seven, an essay on the art of ingeniously toll mentoring, sprint. It's basically the opposite of how to win friends and infants. It's how to annoy everybody and how to make people feel small and insignificant an uncomfortable. And she goes serving how to make your husband feel uncomfortable servants. Friends is how do you go about selling is you don't want to because I've never heard of it. I'd love to have owned the barflies one, but I didn't know it existed. Is it a case of when people come in? They ask you vice and then you steer them in that direction or do any kind of marketing involved. Will you try and push certain books that we do a lot of work in that area. So for example, a book on tormenting I have a customer in New Zealand. Who collects works like that, who so food but works that adjust cookie and shop. And this is now a reserved for her because I had her in mind. I thought she'd find this fascinating and she doesn't have it. So that's the marketing site. I mean, is the knowledge of you customers. That's why we don't sell on the internet because then I can't get to know people and what they like. So the cocktail book? Yeah, we'll have a cocktail evening here or for the marketing. They'll be a magazine that will want to feature it as you know, the perfect gift to give to your husband if he likes cocktails or have a another customer who has a nice apartment. One of those buildings on the river in Paris, the bridges, invisible and say, Harry is I have to be creative and think along those lines icon just pump. It out with advert as minutes. That's where it gets interesting sometimes just by a book because I like it. And usually that's easiest one market or promote. It's the hardest one to sell 'cause I don't really want to sell any of my books. Toronto
