Has Scott Morrison spent too much?

"Me. If you've already heard me mention this but one of my favorite quotes during the covid crosses a pdf the guardian. This is the British lift wing newspaper. Now, this was the heart of the coronavirus crisis. It would have been light much quote just as there are no atheists on a sinking ship, there are no free marketeers during a pandemic. Now, the author of that apt quote Jonathan Freedland, he was referring to the audio logical revolution within the British conservative. Party. Now, according to Freedland Boris Johnson's his have defied four decades of thatcherism small-state free-market, thinking I to spend staggering amounts of money and then subsidizing the wages of workers. Could the same thing be said about Australia's Liberal Party they're the party of Howard and Costello now embraces big-spending high deficit government interventionism. And is a permanent state of affairs poor kilis editor at large of the Australian US pipe and Judas Brit is emeritus professor of politics at Latrobe University poll judy welcome back to the show. Hristo Paul, you've written to calms about this subject in the past week, summarize your faces. Will Martha is that all parties and all governments have to respond to the times in which they find themselves on display in Australia. Now we face an extraordinary economic crisis and the response reveals the nature of Scott Morrison, his prime minister and the Mars and government. So Morrison, not responding as Liberal Party progressive or is it Liberal Party conservative? He doesn't see himself in those terms his responses pragmatic selects able and practical. He's not inhibited by former policy and audio logical icons of the Liberal Party. Say What we say is the government has abandoned the long-term syllabus aspirations. It's A. Big Spending government it's a government government intervention focused on Keynesian demand management. It does however on the Liberal Party tradition of tax cuts will see next week. So it's prepared to regulate or deregulate according to the situation according to what's required. So to sum up say that Morrison wants to be defined by results and outcomes not philosophical principle. Okay. You mentioned the tax cuts leaving that aside traditional liberal governments are about balancing the books Paul, how much an as do you think aries in the Liberal Party about in the parliament and outside about these handouts to preserve jobs and livelihoods? Are. I. Don't think there's much on these at all OPTIMA and Tom. and. A couple of reasons for this if there is to be on, he's He's will come through the down the track, but essentially what's happening here is to govern is following the Orthodoxy or what you might call the new Orthodoxy in terms of meeting the financial and economic crisis. So roller response is sort of radical. It's also conventional. The official family is working together very closely. The Treasury the Reserve Bank, what the government is doing is essentially supported by private-sector economists. It's in law and with Patrick amended by the VCD and the IMF not the cabinet is very nodded, the Prime Minister and the treasurer are working very closely together so far the results look good. I think the Overwhelming sentiment on the back benches. Support, the government strategy in the hope that this gives individual employees, the chance of actually being reelected and my will give the government the chance of being reelected. So the reinvention of Australian liberalism is on full display with this budget judith break you agree with Paul Kelly about the the audio logical significance of these changes but actually think the government had much choice in that sense I do think we can see something audio logical preferences in a couple of the policies poor mentioned the tax cuts they've chosen tax cuts over for example, committing to a permanent increase in new act now co Job Seca. They've also, for example, if we look at the way, they wanted to stimulate the housing market. They've gone for giving money to individual owners rather than, for example, embarking on a social housing project. So I think in some of the means, we can still see some of the ideological preferences of the Patty. One of the things I've wondered when I've been watching the events unfold. If Labor had won the last election was in government with the Liberals have supported the same levels of spending or would they have if you like stayed in the sort of ideological bunker bean and attacked the blow out of the deficit? I mean, it's a hypothetical. In some ways I think we've been very lucky that it's been the liberals and the coalition in government because they can sense being able to Ghana much more support. I, think than I have been able to do for the same levels of spending but isn't cameras response to the COVID crosses more consistent with other Western governments during the pandemic Judy. Yes that's what I think. I had much option but the question is if the coalition of being opposition, would they have supported a Labor government going? You've written a lot about this have many many decades about when orthodoxies or overturned. It's usually bipartisan is that you'll since if the coalition cypher argument's sake wherein opposition I would have gone along with this big spending interventionism. Look are essentially agree with what Judy's said about this I think in a sense we're. Fortunate, if you liked that the coalition's in government because it's taken all the big spending decisions. and. Lay has been prepared to go along with back. In fact, it's argued that there should be even more spending. So in that sense, we've had a broad degree of thought-out ship within the economic framework. It is hot the typical of course to tron speculate about what would have happened if alive had been in office doing this but I do think that the coalition in opposition would have been tempted to make caught a lot of criticisms and to suggest that the spending had gone too far. There's a big difference for party thing in government managing across and being an opposition. Cape with this theme of a political realignment among center right parties around the Western world. If you think about Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen, he tapped into widespread anxieties. America's rust belt. What can class constituencies? Boris Johnson showed last December, he resonated with traditional British Library voters in the Midlands and northern England. Judy. Do you think that Morrison in a wise doing the same thing here in Australia? Now, I think they're very different sorts of crises. I mean the pandemic is an external. Crisis, it's not being caused by politics in any way it's not back nationalism versus globalism or any of those things, and so I don't agree with that. I agree with what Paul was saying earlier that Morrison's shown himself to be pragmatic and quick footed in this and I think we're lucky for that. But I I don't think that this lines up with bricks and with trump's appeal to the rest spilled poor Kelly. Well I think conservatism is changing if you look at. America Britain Australia and there's not a dopey getting very significant changes into servitude. Thought. Different changes argued very strongly that there are very substantial differences between Donald Trump and Scott Morrison. I think people who argue that. Morrison is a pilot version of DONALD TRUMP MAUREEN DOWD in the New York Times by the way, but go on. I think. I think turned him mentally misunderstand the situation I. Think the change in conservatism is very dramatic in the United States. If you'd like because we've got the transition from Ronald, Reagan who a generation ago was the great conservative champion, and now we have Donald Trump, who if you lock is a populist conservative? And that transformation is simply enormous install ending content I mean trump violates all the virtues of conservatism in terms of restraint prudence disciplined respect. Regard for the political system, he thrives on division. So he likes all the traditional conservative norms, and then when looks at his policies. Well he's sabotage the global trading system. He's an arch protectionist. He's engaged in this trade war with China he's appraised dictators and suspicious about. So I guess one of the Fundamental Christians here is the extent to which trump is an aberration. And the extent to which post trump American concert is we'll have to try and create a new position cognisant of the damage that trump has done to the traditional Republican Party

Ashley Blaker: Goy Friendly

"Talk about some. I'm pretty heavy issues. Israel Iran Patriot of Jews. So our next guest is a pretty big leap for us. Ashley Blaker is Jewish standup comedian. He is the first Orthodox Fox Jewish comedian to be given his own BBC. Show Ashley Blaker. GOYA's guide to Judaism which returned to the air in October. Two Thousand Nineteen. Now he's in New York for his latest off off Broadway. Show Ashley Blaker Goi friendly which premieres at the Soho playhouse. On February third and runs through February twenty third. While his previous off-broadway production strictly unorthodox was tailored for Jewish audiences. This one he says is not just for the Jews. It tells the story of how Ashley's close friendship with Muslim. Comedian Imron on. UCS completely changed his life with antisemitic incidents on the rise around the globe and even here in New York actually hopes to make the audience laugh but also understand stand a little bit more about their Jewish neighbors Ashley. Welcome to our studio. Thank you for having me so I have to ask you right out of the gate. anti-semitism is not funny. So how how do you address that topic with humor. Well the reality is I think he's anything can be funny. So I'll let you come to Louis showing judge whether I make. It isn't about antisemitism. I should say that there is actually a section is a band. Semitism thought. I think the more interesting is the fact that that when antisemitism is on the rise there are two ways of dealing with. This is a way of kind of hunkering down. Just going. We're we're now gonNA stick to ourselves and and try and protect ourselves and put up the security barriers and let's have lots of armed guards on the on the door in social ones bags and all of that stuff all you can kind of outreach. As it were and try and engage with the outside world and that's what my shows about about the latter it's about reaching out to the outside world and in a way this makes wants a comedy show. You know hopefully nonstop funny. Sound sound incredibly dry but Hopefully demystify Judaism a little bit. That's certainly one of the aims. Okay well I would say you could do both right. Do the security see the undercover getting having no security either. All kind of you know very good at that accused but I actually my playbill. I wrote a Performance note and for Bates Him. But I said something about how you know very good dividing ourselves as a as an in one of the things into I enjoy doing you mentioned my show strictly and also those I I love bringing choose together because we figured it kind of separating ourselves in so many different ways you know on the whole joke about the Jewish man who lands on a desert island and he builds two synagogues one ones that he'll go to one that he wouldn't ever be seen dead and that's like what we're like but I do think that there is it is an important time to actually reach out a little bit and we can. I think sometimes certainly not in any way suggesting that we. We are in any way a foot four and symptom of course but I sometimes think that actually being too insular. Isn't that helpful. Listen so now you are from the UK so well the Labor Party. I have to ask you about the Labor Party. I'm afraid But it's often regarded as the political liberal party of choice by many Jews in Great Britain. And I'm curious how you dealt with the last election and whether or not you felt politically homeless as I kept had reading about the Jewish community. There didn't myself but I'm sure other people did and I think that yes certainly in the post for many Jews the Labor faulty will have. I've been there home by just as much as the Conservative Party would be for many Liberal Democrat. We have quite a different political system. Should know to to to the Americans as many but yes I mean. It was incredible. What happened over the last few years and how symtas I'm just rose and seem to not be dealt with toll within the Labor Party in? Yeah it was a terrible thing we still really really been dealt with properly gone away. Yeah I know there were. There were several vile things said many vile things said ed by Labour politicians but then also Jeremy Corbyn himself was talking about the lack of irony that many British Jews seem to have. I don't know if you recall that particular. Yes it was Avia. Yeah it was a video I think from a while ago. Actually but he had yes he had said something. And there's a lot of these kind of allusions I think is because they. They caught clever then. They don't outright. This isn't the foul right then marking the street saying killed the Jews. It's a very allusive. Quite clever thing of of Hinson these particular weight alluding that Jews and Israel inflating the to and to you know the whole talking about antisemitism and anti Zionism also that that things that really came along with the Labor Party and I saw something videos of people saying no no we. We're not intimately to we like the right to choose. I think there's that thing of the good news and the bad news and I think that's a really good. Jews has ones March against Israel and kind of write letters to the Guardian saying that we support Sanctioned bedia smell that kind of thing uh-huh and then the ninety five percent of the badges. I mean that's clearly terrible things so it's been a really dark period and I didn't know it'll be interesting to see in the the next four five years. How things change? Have you tried to address it with humor. There over showed. I just did a toll in opened in in May with my friend Imran you mentioned draymond so imminent. He did a tour together called profit sharing actually breaking news in profit sharing seek clever title. And it's not address head on there are other people addressing this head on and the the truth is the way to look on twitter five minutes especially around the time the election to see that kind of Echo Chamber people. Don't WanNa hear they. You know you you tweet. Something about Labor Jeremy Corbyn and immediately comes back. This prepared list of twenty times. Jeremy Corbyn has both a motion ocean in parliament. That's been helpful to community Blah Blah Blah say. No one listens to each other anymore. People just spout the same thing. So I'm not sure engaging in that kind of way addressing head on is that helpful she because people just don't want to listen right. I'm sure it's the same here with trump and I'm sure there are people who are vehemently say one one thing you don't want to listen to the side. Yes that is. That is a problem that area. So I think that's something we've seen a lot particular around brexit and all these issues as we've had in the UK and the F. But so my show anyway. Mike show look comedy show. That's the the the main PARV. So I'll tell you briefly I mean essence shows. It's about yeah. Tell us about the show but then I also want to hear more about Enron and your friendship so the show about my friend she was Enron said. So that's the kind of I think in film in terms they call that the macguffin. He's kind of you know that you heard that term. I'm not familiar with that. So it's like using the original star wars. I think C. Three Po an onto d two of the macguffin that they're the ones like sent off into onto the desert and enter tattooing. They've got the messages item. Thank you the whole plot revolves from. Then there's no actually about them but it starts from them so in a way money's the macguffin hit because is a true story we're good friends we went untold together. And he's very interested custody my life he didn't know much about Judaism me belly of June. We spent many hours together in the call. He was always drawing because he he's Muslim. Couldn't in claiming been drinking and he's always asked me questions and I kind of wanted to teach him about Judaism. But where do you start. We've got six hundred thirteen commandments. It's too long to the call I didn't want to spend money on guests so I thought well I teach him about the Ten Commandments. And we started looking at the Ten Commandments. And I unrealized. They're not that practical you know he doesn't have an ox next all so there's no need to worry about not coveting it and I so I could. Maybe set myself challenge of coming up with my own ten commandments. That I could be a bit more practical. But they could actually explain what it's like to be an Orthodox Jew in two thousand twenty and in a way. It was my friendship with him. That made me reconsider my Judaism. Because she had I've been living as an Orthodox Jew for the best part of twenty years but it's only when an outside comes along install challenging us at you start having to think about it you start thinking about your love. So that's what the shows about and it's about me going through these ten commandments. My New Ten Commandments. antiquing this to him okay. So do you mind sharing a few of the talk commanded if you're the one of them is thou shalt develop obsessive compulsive disorder okay. She's an integral Paulsville so shoot as But we cover branch of Judy. Check that box right exactly. So we cover a lot of these areas we cover kosher food and living in a Jewish area. We talk about the curse of praying public and this covers a lot of ground really comes a lot of ground in the show and then And then the story I keep finished. The story has a continuation because of how Im- reacted and then what we went off did something together which I don't want to spoil because that's the narrative But it's a pretty funny chairman. I it really is. I'm super proud of it. So you say I did. This show could street Lennox. It was aimed at a Jewish audience. All Jews knock. He's also dogs. Reform Perform Conservative unaffiliated. But Still Jews and I think it's a really. I really wanted to do something. Everyone could cutting joy That would be in a language WIGGs. Everyone can understand but the is serious does not scrimp on the jokes atone. It's the funniest show of ever done this by miles miles because I've already but still called the serious stuff when we do discuss antisemitism and there are some real takeaways well foam it excellent zone. The show's name. Is Ashley. Blaker friendly it's at the Soho playhouse here in New York City from February third to twenty-third. Thank you for joining us. Thank

Future of the Labour Party, ICC Investigation, Black-Jewish Relations

"Liam whore is the Europe editor for moment magazine. It has been covering Labor's antisemitism awesome scandal since two thousand fifteen. He joins us now to help us understand. What's next for that party for British Jews and for the United Kingdom Liam? Thank you so much for joining us. I thank you for inviting me for the most part analysts are chalking up. Labour's defeat to having the wrong message on Brexit but there is is no doubt that Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour leader was historically unpopular. And no doubt that a part of that unpopularity was due to the anti eighty. Semitism that he let grow in the party. Are there grumblings on the far left that Jews are responsible for his defeat. And that's something that British Jews are worrying about. I think what we've seen since the election is people on the far left at Labor constituency meetings and online researching the British Jewish Institutions. Such as the Board of Deputies or indeed the chief rabbi Were in fact stories or conservatives I should say and innocent intervening in the election on their side. That's what he wanted to the things that the board of Deputies hope that the future Labour leader will expunge from the and that is one reason why they've come forward with the ten pledges in recent days. You mentioned the list of ten pledges that the Board of Deputies the kind of umbrella Ella Organisation for British Jews that the Board of Deputies released just a couple of days ago they basically say that these are the ten things or perhaps the first ten things the Labor Party needs to adopt needs to do in order to heal its relationship with the Jewish community. And we don't need to go through them one by one but broadly what are these ten pledges calling calling for. Well as you say broadly the first thing is that Outstanding Cases Anti Semitism in the Party needs to be resolved and the discipline under reprocessed to have to be made independent again and sh- interference from the leadership team sort of around. Jeremy Corbyn in this process must come to an end thereafter. What's I think? What's important folder? The board is to reestablish a working relationship with the leader of your party after all when a function is to be a conduit between the panoply of organizations they represent and and the government Foreign bodies and so forth and finally just add that one of the things they want to see done is that the full I h Ra the definition of Anti Semitism. With all of these examples applauses will be introduced and used in disciplinary cases within the party. That was a major eric. Eric disputes within the party last year or earlier this year. And that's one of the things I want to get done here at. AJC We're very proud of having been a part of authoring during the era definition but for our listeners who aren't familiar with the definition and why it's so important. Can you just say a word about that. Well because of dispute within the party I should say making making more specific is that People on the far left of the party were concerned that this definition would prevent them from Criticizing sizing Israel or Israeli policy. Which of course? He's not well. The definition does he's indicate ways in which rhetoric concerning Israel Israel can tip over into antisemitism I believe for example if people would say that the actions of the Israeli government towards what's the Palestinians in some way resemble the actions of Not Towards Jews in Europe in the nineteen forties So really they had nothing to worry about. But this is all tied to a much larger augmented. It was rambling on throughout the entirety of Jeremy Comex leadership of the Liberal Party concerning anti Israel rhetoric break and wearing that becomes at. You haven't ISM or for example. If someone challenging British Jews were to somehow hold them accountable for the actions actions of the Israeli government. I think that would also be seen as anti Semitic under the IRA definition which is really important. Considering the way that often we've seen across Europe and perhaps in Britain specifically people tried to do that. Try to discredit jus. I think there's a slur that has cropped up in the UK. Zayas people who you you know. They're interested in defaming and demeaning. They don't really have any way to do it except to try to tie them to Israel so I think it's important that the Labor Party adopts the definition in order to make very clear to its constituents that that kind of thing is anti Semitic well quite an in recent days we have an example of that which is that There's no sort of I would say online activists By the name of Rachel cousins. Who goes by the alias? Rachel Swindon who has a following of tens of thousands of people on twitter. It's unclear whether she is or is not in fact a member of the party but she's nonetheless very close to the sort of cold and leadership and in response to the boards pledges. She tweeted that as I previously said that the board was essentially a conservative organization and also came out with is her own or Or perhaps found only list of pledges for the board which more or less argue that the board had to come out and condemn Israeli military action. In the West Bank thank or condemn what she calls the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian communities in in the West Bank in other words as you said holding British Jews accountable for the actions. uh-huh office ready government. which if they at the very least a dangerous road to go down and she somebody who has previous four in this regard having tweeted about the rothschilds and the so-called influence in the past so the point of this is to say that changing the Leo Party is only the first step? They won't be root and branch Tusk to erotic antisemitism from the Ponti it is always interesting to see how those people who take part in what is called the new antisemitism this kind of attacking Jews shoes on the basis of what Israel does how at the end of the day they are also just old antisemites in the way that she brings up Rothschild conspiracies and things like that. I wanted to ask you about one of the pledgers. In particular number eight is entitled engagement with the Jewish community to be made via its main representative groups and then in explains Labor must engage with the Jewish community Levi its main representative groups not through fringe organizations and individuals. That sounds like it's referencing. Something like there's some history there. Can you tell us a little bit about that. Sure I mean I mean Jeremy Corbyn is somebody who was throughout the time he was leader of the party. Never very much interested in the views and concerns all mainstream British Jewish ortganizations. He has historically been in most of the time that he was leader. Always much more comfortable with what the board calls fringe organizations for example He wasn't much interested in The Jewish Labor movement which is sort of the mainstream Organiz ation all Jews in Labor Party or affiliated with the party rather Jewish Voice Labor whose membership I think could fit into a phone box. I mean if you look at their rallies and meetings the the next in the Guardian newspaper. It's always the same ten fifteen twenty people who assigning these latches At the same time At one of the times when the relationship between Jerry in British Jewish groups was was at his lowest he attended a Saito organized by a group called choose. Who are legitimate tendency in the Jewish community and represent people who have felt themselves felt this affiliated pushed away from the mainstream left-wing clock but they themselves I'm sure would say the reps and also a a very small number of people also Jeremy's also been affiliated with sort of anti-zionist ultra Orthodox people who live in his community but he did not have a working relationship with the board he did not have a working relationship with the chief rabbi in so far as I know and not that he had a working relationship with with the Jewish Leadership Council? which sort of is a you might say a rival organization to the Board of Deputies also a representative group so this point eight? This engagement group is really about the board wanting to reestablish Atlantic communication and a working relationship with the party which is sort of one of the sort of raison. d'etre foil for the board. It sells I'm going to move on in just a moment. Kind of forward-looking questions but there is one more retrospective effective thing that I'm curious about. which is what are we to make of people who are real friends of the Jews or certainly seem to be who campaigned for Labor in this last election? I'm thinking of people for example like London. Mayor Sadeq Khan who has said all the right things about anti Semitism done many of the things about about antisemitism but nevertheless tried to make Jeremy Corbyn the next prime minister should we hold that against him. I case if someone likes to Econ we should not hold that against against him and I think I think you know people who reunite kind of position which is to say supposedly oh party but not supposed to Jeremy Corbyn were very torn because the reality is the British electoral system that much like the Americans. There's it ends up becoming a two-party system Elections to the House Elsa parliament more or less function like elections to the House representatives. There are six hundred fifty constituencies. Each insurance becomes its own kind of to race and in many any of them the racist between Labour and the Conservatives and so sort of I would say anti anti Semitic Labor supporters found themselves in a very Korea unenvious position of having to decide. Do I vote for the Conservatives and put into power party that I oppose my entire adult life likely. ooh Aw do I grit my teeth and vote for the Labor Party on the basis that I am somehow voting for the Party and voting for the candidate in my constituency. But somehow not Jeremy Corbyn and I you know I as a journalist. I love about the free in this regard. So I don't have to make such compromises but I nonetheless feel for people who know people like I said Connor or you could answer this people like just flips. Who is now a candidate for leadership who it's not about Anti Semitism in the pause About the kind of compromises. They had to make that time. So no we we. We shouldn't hold I bet against As you intimate in about a month the voting will begin to elect a new leader of Labor this kind of an interesting quirk for our American listeners. The voting voting will actually stay open for more than a month through the beginning of April and people can vote. I guess anytime in that span. Who are the names that we need to know who are likely Lee to win the election and are any of them going to be you know kind of on their own? The answer to Labour's antisemitism problem tackling the antisemitism crisis is not as simple as for lack of a better way of putting removing the head from the snake Having Jeremy Corbyn leader suddenly a good thing because the cost was it the crisis could not be it's solution But in terms of who will become the next leader There this prison time probably two main candidates on the one hand you have Rebecca Long Bailey who is perceived to be the continuity Corbin candidate the date.

Who Is Isaac Levido?

"At the end of this month. The United Kingdom will leave the European Union and in so doing fulfill the key election pledge of conservative prime minister. Boris Johnson. To you get brexit done. We have followed that. He's paralyzed blocked. Dinner Lean capable of functioning as Anaconda that swallowed the neither moving one way on the other. He's lean except of course that brexit will not get done on January thirty first Brexit exit will not get close to done on January thirty first if and when Brexit can truly be said to have got done it will be still further pointless tedious Diaz wasted years from now but none of this matters to the Prime Minister and party. Who promised to do it? What does matter at least to them is that they won a thumping majority in last month's general election for that the Tories Oak considerable thanks and have doubtless already paid considerable? Money to a rashly officially beaded thirty something from Port Macquarie New South Wales who served as the Party's campaign director. His name is Isaac Lovato. It is. It's always hard to know how much credit to extend to such figures. Strategists spin-doctors string-pullers special advisers. It seems reasonable to assume the people capable of subtly manipulating public opinion in favor of their paymasters Also able to cunningly inflate their own reputation for being able to do so but there is little doubt that Levino presently basks in the warmest regard of the recently returned conservatives Dominic Cummings Boris orest Johnson's senior adviser and a man not known for self deprecation in much. The same way that circles are not known for being square has described Libido As a hundred times better at running campaigns than me so who exactly is is a collado and how did he get here. La Vida learned his trade from his fellow. Australian Lynton Crosby a veteran political strategist. Who has made something of a speciality of coordinating somewhat belligerent and populist campaigns for parties wrightwood of center in Australia and elsewhere though crosby's record in the UK is not one of unalloyed success excess? He did twice help.

Listen perhaps in what not to do as a nation. We face the most important potent five years. I can remember. That is why I took the decision to call a general election so that we have a strong and stable leadership we need old to see us through brexit and beyond but La Vida made his name properly back in Australia in two thousand eighteen where he served as deputy director of the Liberal Party party. Australia's annoyingly named Conservative Party in May two thousand nineteen the Liberals led by incumbent. Prime Minister Scott Morrison steeled themselves also a general election which nobody believed they could win. With the apparent exception of Isaac La Vida veto helped create a strategy which relied on a ruthless roofless focus on the merits of the prime minister such as they were the shortcomings of the opposition leader and brutally simple messaging.

Max is on the line now with me to discuss his impressions but first I'd like to open with a clip from the meeting. which gives a flavour of the character of the man? Another big Mac this my Russians rather rudimentary. What what he's saying here so we were wandering around the food court where he took me for lunch which is just across the street from his office in slightly out out of the way but rapidly gentrifying art a southeastern Moscow and this is the sort of place that even if it didn't exist in Russia they've had food around the world from your burgers ears Pasta Sushi to dahgestani dumplings and who's back Pilaf and other things and saying is a place like this that shows you in his mind that Russia As a whole could the really made it economically if it weren't for Putin and he described nisus glass ceiling that's more like a hideous moldy Soviet ceiling the Stop Russia from economically developing. Stick Landy Patillo. Then is a mere ski navy of the numbers suggest that he thinks that despite the huge spike in wealth in the first two years of Putin's rule which was mostly due to rising oil prices. He views the last two decades lost decades because he Says that so much has been stolen. That could have gone towards economic development and there are so many repressive rules and regulations that are holding it back. You've covered Russia for quite a while. Now these are quite strong and outspoken. Remarks how rat is it for a Russian activist to speak out like this. How brave is it to speak out like this I? I interviewed Navan nebout seven years ago in the thing. That is really remarkable about him when you speak to him as I've done many times sense. Sense is just how much breath of fresh air he is. Compared to your official Russian politicians who come from the Soviet bureaucratic addict tradition. They are very bad at talking to normal people in on manage settings you almost never see them give interviews to the independent media where they might says difficult questions. The volney grew up completely outside the system. He someone who was formed by the Internet and by the street and even compared to other people in the opposition and he's a very charismatic person. And this is what is really set them apart even amongst all the pressure that he faces to become the undisputed most popular challenger the Putin in the last few years ears. You say you've known him for a while you've covered rushing for awhile. Tell us how he entered politics. I mean what made him take on this role not only art Ukrainian on his father's side and he has relatives who live near Chernobyl outside Kiev in Ukraine for the first ten years his life up until the blast itself itself in Nineteen eighty-six. He will go and stay with his grandmother. Who lived in this village right near the nuclear power station and the aftermath of fat that we know so well the incompetent Soviet attempts to cover that were very big part of what shaped him because he doesn't have any of this nostalgia for the Soviet Union that Putin has been very big on a lot of people older than the volume has just forty three share? He was very much convinced by this early childhood experience that the system was wrong in the future. Russia's move away from it as far as possible more towards a European liberal democracy as he sees it the other thing. He told me that really shaped him was when he was already in his late twenties he he was working pro. Bono was a lawyer for an opposition party but it was official opposition party in Russia. There are the official parties. who were there to create a semblance of a real political system? They're really they facto controlled by the Kremlin the end. The parties themselves are run like Chiefdoms. Just like Putin's own party and the leaders are these many Putin's and he was working on Moscow City Council elections thousand five and ran against Russia's incredibly corrupt court system. Any said gradually just made him so furious that he became even activist. It's quite a story. I mean you say. He's not nostalgic for the Soviet Union. Interestingly he is though it seems something of a Russian nationalist. Can you talk us through who they send what influence it has on him. And how nationalist is he. Welna volley was actually kicked out of the Liberal Party that he was a member of in two thousand seven for his nationalist nationalist views. Of the sort that you would never hear discussed in polite company among liberals in Moscow and the US the express were very different from from the nationalism that you might think of associated with Putin which is more of the Soviet imperial stout in the Valdez was much more. Russian ethnic Chauvinism Virjee into race says. I'm against people. From the periphery of the Soviet Empire. So the caucasus-chechen Augustan and places in Central Asia Pakistan Cure Augustan Tajikistan stamp who provide millions of laborers who come and do construction jobs. And other things like that in Moscow the center of the Empire and he filmed in some pretty startling videos including one which showed him comparing people from the Caucasus. The cockroaches and mocking shooting them with a gun. He spent several years organizing organizing this annual nationals rally which was attended by all sorts of Neo Nazis and skinheads as well as other people at one of these rallies he used an anti Semitic blood libel trope to talk about Jewish guards. Did you talk about this of your lunch. Does he apologize for any of this. We did. This is something that the money is criticized for quite a lot even though no it's not really very big part of this program anymore. E only really says he wants if these regime for guests laborers from Central Asia but he has no regrets his explanation was that in two two thousand seven. There was this enormous gap between living standards in Russia's back Stan and millions of people were coming from Central Asia to work in Russia and it was a big political issue so the message disorder by rhetoric was a way of trying to get people interested. Max The interview you did with Nevada was for a weekly lunch with the F. T. Slot which normally unfolds in fanny a predictable lines could a swanky restaurant. Just two people the F. T. journalists and the interviewee this was rather different. You joined by someone feel interview view. Can you tell us about this weirdly enough. This is my third lunch with the F. T. that I've done in every single time I've been joined by someone who I don't expect to be there. And this time we were followed by the troll who apparently works for one of the fake news farms run by a Guinea per goes in the Kremlin caterer who runs the infamous Saint Petersburg troll factory. So you walked out of the office building. This guy yelled Alexei. Can you tell us where do you buy your okay involved. He told him to get lost. And the guy follow this rounds we wandered around the food court court and then when we bought our food then sat at the table across from us and watched us through the entirety. The two hour interview and you know all the said for the last six nine months or so ever since his foundation started investigating promotions catering contracts needs people who've been following him and his family around everywhere they go was he listening to you or oh just sitting there to be kind of threatening ish. It was more intimidation. I mean this was someone who was twenty five at most maybe younger and it's not being paid a lot of money to do this but the point is clearly just to harass him the entire time. He is trying to laugh about it he said. It's a good way the practice Zen but he came pretty close snapping a few times and it was obviously of your family's being harassed like that. He's accused promotion of being behind a physical assault assault with arm bar on husband one of his top aides. I mean the impression you get from this story and from other accounts in the valleys life is is that the pressure he faces is utterly relentless and he's been facing this for a long time how does he keep going one of the questions. I've asked many many times over the years. He always finds himself. Trying to explain is your. Why aren't you in jail? Why aren't you dead? And the answer is best as anyone until seem speed. The he's almost almost become too big to jail because when they tried to do it in twenty thirteen he was sentenced to

Canada elections: Trudeau wins narrow victory to form minority

"Judo has won a second term as Canada's Prime Minister his Liberal Party will claim the most seats in parliament but they are expected to fall short of an outright majority. Let's have a listen to of what Trudeau had to say in his victory speech in Montreal from coast to Coast to coast tonight Canadians rejected division negatively they rejected cuts and austerity and they voted in favor of progress serve agenda and strong action on climate change I heard you my friends you are sending our liberal team back to work back to Ottawa with a clear mandate we will make life more affordable we will continue to fight climate change we will get guns off our streets and we will keep investing well big words but minority government that was the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaking a short time ago join here in the studio by Daniel Bank One of our Canadian contingent Heritz Midori House Danny what's your reactions that he he sounded pretty strung out but we were talking just before the thanks went live you know he's now looking to features the setting the agenda as he moves forwards was everyone been saying yeah he has to sort of shake off a very visit and bitter campaign quickly and get back to work that was more of a campaign style speech and it's really interesting that Trudeau that was close to do one o'clock in the morning and Montreal is quite late I was listening on the way and this morning he chose to speak at the exact same time as Andrews Cheer was speaking in the prairies Indus Jagmeet Singh was speaking out in British Columbia normally they don't do that normally they come together and say I'm going to speak at this time you'll speak at that time they all spoke at the same time they spoke over each other during the Bates during the debates they spoke over each other early this morning as they sort of rallied the troops again aw projecting this as a huge victory but liberals conservatives and the MVP all lost ground so they're all losers they're all winners innocence where we had that before electoral pollens just tell us a bit about minority government Canadians good at doing that I mean we have a long history of minority governments certainly the world the word coalition I mentioned this on the globalist as well not really used in Canada it was it was floated by Jagmeet Singh Very Progressive Left leaning leader of the D. new Democrats floated during the campaign he immediately had to walk that back and talk about supporting the government Interestingly the new Democrats are directly against the pipeline they they refuse to work for that pipeline the Liberals bought the pipeline in for the energy sector in the West obviously which the conservatives champion so the new Democrats have twenty four seats for the Liberals to get anything through parliament they would need either the new Democrats the block by block of Becua- pardon me the Nationalist Party from Quebec who actually won more seats on last night then the EP so they are the real balance of power here it won't be a coalition in official terms Justin Trudeau we've known him to become quite bullish and even quite pompous I don't see him putting An and EP member into his caucus into his government I don't see that happening so it won't be an official coalition absolutely he'll need their support so it will be a tenuous one the Conservative leader Andrew Scheer saying last night were ready and waiting to defeat the government and we're ready to take over they don't think it's GonNa last long so we shall see what about his deal-making prowess see this has been damaging Trudeau to a degree does he still have the facility to do any kind of deal with any of these other players are the formal or informal it is present me he's still a well he still capable Titian can you get that done I think you'll have to he he won't have choice he the clip we heard off the top there he was talking about making life more affordable tackling climate change and he would absolutely need the new Democrats for those things that's what they campaigned on on you know making healthcare more affordable making living more affordable and and talking about Pharma Cares taking the taking care of that he would absolutely need the MVP I think Jagmeet Singh is guy he can work with very charismatic young guy much like Trudeau champion himself fashioned himself in his first campaign Trudeau will need to maintain sort of his strong leadership approach and Project that behind closed doors heal absolutely need to be the tactful politician and get some help let's see how it gets on with that now we mentioned you're GonNa Browse through some newspapers can I start with my yeah it's it's true though with the witch's brooms and some bats and black cats playing up the Halloween theme that It is a story right leaning newspaper from from Alberta projecting welcome to the nightmare it's so funny actually hearing overnight the some of the coverage from the public broadcaster in Canada them reminding listeners about nineteen eighty when when Pierre Trudeau and Justin's father was completely shut out in the prairies much like Trudeau was last night because of the resentment in Alberta always actually really surprised to hear from even liberal western Canadians how much they've resent inch trudeau he is really disliked. This is a problem the other thing about forming a government is what his father did in nineteen eighty was he had to draft in senators to read percents those providence provinces in his government because he had no MP's the exact same situation now will true draw from the opposition parties to help misgovernment put them in cabinet posts or will he draft in people who weren't even elected or didn't even campaign his father did exactly that he wasn't liked out west the energy sector after the massive question of course international forces international markets have a lot to do with the price of oil and how the energy sector does but there you're huge huge implications for Trudeau and what he does on this pipeline Quebec and the block Becua- don't support it the MVP don't support it but western Canada says we have to get moving on the energy file let's just have a couple of others national post was one of the most beautifully and elegantly designed administered and Jagmeet Singh the leader of the EP declaring I won which is which is partially true at the end ep lost a lot of they did gain a lot of ground during the campaign a Jagmeet Singh did very well for himself and projecting himself as a capable young charismatic leader he will be an interesting one to watch in the House of Commons Holding Trudeau to account And this other comment piece I find quite funny on the front of the National Post PM Makes History with a new low he he moves on from a majority government to lose the popular vote across Canada Canada but and the other comment saying he's pulled off a bit of an election miracle which I think after the last two scandals he he did quite well to pull that in an election

S. come up in the campaign it has and you know what has come up is that nafta the deal that side Justin's Frio and his levels have been trying to get through to get that new deal Justin Trudeau has been using it a little bit on the campaign trail to sort of say look we got this done we we were able to protect some of the things that we're perhaps gonna lose in those negotiations so you should trust us to do more in the next four years we have in our work isn't finished on some other fronts it's not been ratified right so it did come up on the campaign trail but as I said the election didn't feel as much issue driven as you know controversy German we saw that Justin Trudeau photos of him emerging of him in blackface I was a a bump in the campaign of course at Andrew Scheer had some issues about you know being a jewel on US American citizen and not disclosing it interesting Lee though in terms of U. S. at relations Justin Trudeau did get an endorsement from former US president Barack Obama in this last weekend so they're pretty happy about that a little town as this is such a tight race but president trump has not weighed in right on the selection no he is not now that is C.

What to expect from tonight's Democratic debate in Ohio

What to expect from tonight's Democratic debate in Ohio

"Things are having made so it's debate day obviously this is the fourth debate in the Democratic Series of debates for this cycle and obviously there are a few things that are new in this environment than existed in the last three debates one Bernie Sanders is returning from the medical sidelines after supper in a heart attack and having two stents put into his chest so obviously a lot of eyes on him to really since the last debate Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden have emerged into a tier of top two unto themselves they are they've separated themselves entirely from the the pack and while that started to happen in the when they met in September it has just completely formed that way I think in advance of tonight's debate and then of course the biggest change is that this is the first time these Democrats are coming together after Nancy Pelosi launched the impeachment inquiry in earnest in the House of Representatives that's no small thing to have a constitutional crisis going on while candidates come to the debate stage to debate and that's where I want to start with you what what does the having the impeachment of Donald Trump's something all these candidates agree on looming over this debate stage museum for the debate well first of all it's weird to have a debate switch all of the candidates agree that the president needs to be impeached and yet they are all running to run against him in twenty twenty I mean like incongruous it really I well I we've never been in a situation like this before as a country and secondly it really is an awkward to step for some of these they want to show voters that they are ready and tough enough to be up against Donald Trump but at the same time they are trying to argue that trump should be removed from office immediately it also puts a lot of pressure on Joe Biden to to reassure Democratic voters Ah I can't explain to you how much ptsd there is in the electorate right now people are afraid of Hillary Clinton from Hillary Clinton from two thousand sixteen voters are genuinely afraid that that there's going to be some kind of weakness in whoever they nominate that trump is going to explode eight in the same way that he tried to exploit the email saga for Hillary Clinton and Biden's challenge right now is ensuring voters that this issue with Ukraine and Hunter Biden and whether or not it was just a mistake or a lapse of judgement but not anything that was was what was ethically wrong or corrupt is something that he can handle that is not going to become an Achilles heel for him and right now I don't think we're GonNa see a lot of the candidates exploiting that really fully tonight I think many of them agreed don't do Donald Trump's work for him but at the same time I think for voters AH signaling is so important for Biden to just make them feel better about that situation yeah it's hard to imagine that if you were designing a campaign playbook and Tori that you would have chosen to have hunter Biden gave an interview on the morning of this debate you reference some of the things he said I want you to hear a little bit Hunter Biden on ABC's Good Morning America this morning as he faced to these questions about his service on these foreign boards while his dad vice president I think that it was because I don't believe now when I look back on it I know that there was an did nothing wrong at all however was poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is a swamp in in many ways and so I take I take full responsibility for that do I did I do anything improper no now as you know abby in all CNN's reporting of the story there has been no wrongdoing found in the way that donald trump alleged whatsoever on the part of Joe Biden or hundred Hunter Biden is getting adhere isn't the wrongdoing of taking money or somehow Joe Biden trying to fire prosecutor for his sons on son's behalf what hundred saying here that he gets the optics of this were terrible it seems and it I don't oh you took away from Joe Biden over the weekend but when the former vice president announced his policy that if he were to be president no family member associate would be allowed to serve on a foreign entity to me that's an implicit acknowledgement that what he did is vice president was wrong yeah it's really tricky to say I would never do this again and also say I don't think there was anything wrong with it if there was something wrong with it then there should be no problem with doing it again so it's tricky but I do think it was the right move for for Biden to make because I don't think you're gonNA find many democratic of his rivals saying oh it's perfectly fine for the scenario to repeat itself in the future in fact Liam then many and said they would not allow this so I also think you know the timing of this Hunter Biden interview was just really I it was incredible I will say there was a Republican operative who suggested to me that maybe the timing was not so bad that maybe what this really does is it helps Joe Biden really be on the front end of this saying he's already talked about it here's what we're GONNA do I've answered the question wins shutting it down at the beginning of this process maybe that's true but I also think that there's a great amount of risk in the former vice president on who was not really a political person who's had all kinds of twists and turns in his own personal life being out there just having a lengthy free willing interview in which he's talking about kinds of things yeah I I do think all of our reporting from the campaign indicates a this was not something that they initiated and organized but something they were aware of and what seems pretty clear to me is once they knew that hundred was going to sit down and do this interview and they understood when it was going to air that's when I think they packaged the rest of rollout of the ethics plan of saying that he wouldn't allow this administration to to your Republican operatives point is you're saying I do think they packaged around the maybe not so desirable timing one hundred Biden interview to just put out what indeed the vice president's plan would be as as president and I just want to pick up on something you said I think you are one hundred percent right I can't imagine any of his Democratic rivals trying to go there in some way with him on this so supportive of of this notion but I do want to just tease out a bit more of why I agree with you that it is an awkward dance for somebody told voters I am the one that can beat Donald Trump and rally the Liberal Party that Donald Trump should be removed from office right now I that is a tough message to sell them I just am curious when you've been on the trail have you heard a candidate hit that better than another candidate of how to sell those two things you know honestly it does not feel like many of them are are delving into the incongruence of that too much the candidates right now know that the desire among the base to talk about impeachment is very high and to support impeachment is very high and Senate Democrats who are running for president who are on the Senate Judiciary Committee who might have a role in bringing witnesses forward on the Senate side and I think they're trying to use that you say well I can prosecute you know this is a Comma Harris Line I can prosecute the case right now in addition to next November if Donald trump is

Party of ex-Chancellor Kurz wins Austrian election

"Welcome to the briefing we begin by turning our attention to Austria where former Chancellor Sebastian Courts as won a general election and in convincing fashion snap election was called following the collapse of the previous government made up of the People's Party of Mister Courts and the far-right Freedom Party hardy video had revealed the Freedom Party's openness to Russian influence. Peddling courts will now have to choose between shifting left or going back to his former allies in the far right party to form a new government for more on this. I'm joined by tests should covets. UK Correspondent for Austria Profile magazine Tessa. Thank you for joining us and and welcome back to the show Were you surprised at all. I don't buy this results. I think everyone was surprised because the opinion polls before forty elections showed a better resort for prognosis for the far-right what happened I think in the last weeks before the elections was that the far-right Freedom Parthiv got involved. There were some revelations about expense scandals around the leadership and former former head of the party has gone and that further dampen their the the results so a combination of the bitter video scandal from May with these new revelations just kicked him off the chances to return to government as the logical partner that for Christian for Sebastian quote what's so we will see now in long probably difficult coalition negotiations if he indeed will to the Green Party as coalition nations partner. I want to come back to that expensive scandal you mentioned but you are right. The Green Party did surge which is quite curious here sort of square in the middle the People's Party the Conservative Party is the Social Democrats as well which is quite curious. The Conservative Party gained a lot of ground far right lost ground obviously because of of that scandal but with the performance of the Greens does that put into question where the former chancellor is going to look for a new partner in in his coalition while he's definitely the successful populist he managed to gain votes though his previous coalition was failed completely in renewing Australia sort of fear contract with the people in the future so they just had to resign after eighteen months and still he comes out as the one who is the staple prime minister that people trust again to form another government so that's the first thing so the second thing is that the Zeitgeist has changed a little bit in the last two years so the last elections refund on a tough immigration stands after the refugee crisis resulted in strong anxieties in the population this time we're sort of in the middle of Friday's for future a frenzy people thinking about the climate catastrophe more than about the the consequences of immigration could try to push the immigration a topic in all conversations or interviews during during the election campaign but in fact the resides in the success of the green pod shows that the younger voters want something else than the constant immigration debate so they turn to the Green Party and a lot of people in the middle of the society also thought that they wanted some kind of the more open minded and more progressive stance on questions like immigration European Union and end climate and those people voted either green or for this small Liberal Party which was also quite successful. Do we have any indication of which way ah the former chancellor is leaning here for his Coalition Party as he say sort of it is a popular thing now more people are thinking about the climate obviously climate change rather more people voted voted green so he's quite young guy as well not only in age but in his political experience so may he be more curious to to shift left in in building and continuing to grow on his popularity he might and this is a big test now for him as a politician because he was very quickly quickly turning to become one of these right wing populace strongmen tough on immigration and constantly talking about political Islam. I am in how to sort of restrictor these influences in Australian in his Austrian homeland and artists sixty. You know the rhetoric from other other right wing politicians in Europe to now. He has the chance to move back to the middle and do a coalition with the Green Party ideologically. Lee I think this will be quite difficult for him because he has always said that he felt comfortable in the coalition with defy red because they shared a lot of his reform plans and also this anti immigration stance now we will see what he will do and it will be a a very big test also for the Green party because they are much more progressive much more welcoming to immigration much more open minded and in then Sebastian could so for them to go into coalition is quite dangerous too but it's now the moment where Australia has decided and where the Green Party ends passive quits mainly mainly those two have to decide if they want to prevent the fire to come back from into government or not and we will probably see this by the end of the year beginning of next year only the results so the next week will be quite interesting Tessa. Thank you so much for this just fits their

This is a story that broke on Wednesday it and it continues breaking as you listen to this podcast political shockwaves continue tonight after Liberal leader Justin Trudeau admitted to wearing black Alexis this morning video of Third Instance Service Wearing Brown faces an active open mockery and racist. What Canadian saw this evening is someone with a complete lack of judgment and someone who's not fit to govern this country. When I was growing up I fought racist I dealt with myself and I fought back but I got a message from a friend who reminded me that there's a lot of people out there that couldn't do that. I think that that's going to hurt. It's GonNa hurt them. On the nature of photo auto is that had it been a different candidate of the Liberal Party. Let me now saying you have to step down people who live with the kind of discrimination because of the color of their skin face regular basis and I didn't see that from the layers of privilege that I have ah for that. I am deeply sorry and I apologized. No doubt there are a lot of things being broken right now in the newsroom definition of the word and you know at a four because the past couple of days I've been horrible for millions of Canadians so if you want to know what's broken right now unquoted twitter if you want to understand what the conversation around this story reveals about the election about the Canadian media about partisan politics ticks and about the country that nobody wants to talk about but that we live in any way stay right here because here's the thing this election has always been about erase. It was about race since before. The writ was dropped about raceway before a first Brown face photo surfaced. It just had to become really league really obvious for a lot of us who don't deal with racism every day to understand that

"The first opportunity to bring him down on an issue. They agree with him. They all agree with coalition in Ireland, so it's very clearly personal now agree. But there's an irony to that, because it's the Irish question that's going to reassert itself as the problem for what will become the liberal. Party and Gladstone, who's played his own loyal Pillai in eighteen forty six is going to be also his political career and get into grape complications. Because the question when people talk about the conservative party, the modern conservative party was born with pill and having this extraordinary histories often describes the most successful election winning machine in, in the modern world and this notion that there is continuity over time. It is still recognizably the same party does have its roots in this moment, is that true to say Bala, you're all as we even have to put a little explicit warning. So that is politics, actually. That's the slogan of one of the parties. Where is the break? This is a very twentieth century line. It's not a nineteenth century line pill was basically loathed by solves about four. He's God, a traitor twice trader, and he's given grudging support from certain liberal elements who say what he wasn't one of us and he held up progress, but he did his job twice by accepting the need for important reform before it was too late. Is it world? So a useful stabilizing force, so we pack him on the head, but he's nobody's Epeli in that period. Basically, what happens as I see it all the peeling policies economic policies of social philosophy the Justice tomorrow that all goes into with gladsden into the stone in liberal party, liberal party is dominant until I war, collapses, very something very and aspects of liberalism. Go into the conservative party all go into labor. The aspect. That goes into the conservative party is the market economics, expect. So suddenly by twenty five people are starting to say, hey, here's his, the modem conservative party. It's very polite for one thousand nine hundred. Sorry, ninety twenty five p line. However, the great French stolen is the first person to see peel. Here's a key figure, and then you get the historical view of the mid twentieth, century, Belay, gash very, very, very, very dominant and popular peel, Israel, founded the conservative party, although there was a long detour. When I don't feel that way too. I think he got to say that the conservative party either owes itself to Disraeli to Soulsby, one of those two because there's a way of talent story because of the eighteen thirty four time with manifesto that seemed to set out the principles of conservatism in the post eighteen thirty to age, but, like right from the beginning, you've got people in the party who say this is got nothing to do with conservatism. Disraeli's question is, is what on earth is being conserved in this position? So it's not conservative in the literal. Meaning of, of that sense in this too many people in the party's boy said, just don't agree with it. I think it's interesting. The point when people in the conservative party themselves. Trying to claim peel as the hero there's a bit. I was reading earlier in the week, where Douglas Hurd, who biography of PR thing, I'm saying is trying to say, look, peelers who we all, too, but I think it's pretty difficult to see that unless as you say that you start saying that economic liberalism is a central part of what the conservative party is. And then, then you to struggle with the fine that it was the conservative party who turned away from this in terms of free trade been tried to Baldwin tried to in nineteen twenty three and lost seats in the general election as a consequence of doing, and then those national governments in the nineteen thirties dominated by the conservatives are the ones who then constructed imperial trade block, and do finally turn version away from free trade, you'd be hard pushed to describe the conservatives under Eden, and MacMillan and even him in the sixties as being very economically liberal. Maybe you can. Stop putting it back in with Edward Heath. But then it's not a coincidence, perhaps, that heath runs into the complete tension between the claims that he made his neekam modernize, if you like those won't talk about free market principles the problem of how you reconcile his desire to join the European Union with other traditions.

"It till livered a good policy without sorta crisis. And now all as crisis for the conservative party the for serve the party ought to have just gradually disappeared. The serious conservatives would have been spokesman for the cultural interest in the liberal party, shall we say, but the Kosovars disappeared. So instead of getting what you're throughout the third quarter century, huge, liberal coalition where the radicals on the left can't see the wigs on the right there, so divided but kept alive by the continuing the conservatives as the polar opposite. And it means that all classrooms for ministers. Essentially the hobbled by internal division. So I think what would have had if conservatives behave themselves gone away, you would have had a division somewhere. Probably along big state. Little state lines within the liberal party was then of how to radical party emerge. That was not in hot to the trade unions. The trade unions going until the end of the century. And we were not genuinely Roddy who probably more Fabian, an interventionist party whereas win, the labor party comes along. It's not interventionist. It's not really redistributed. I maybe redistributing, I'm sorry. I'm wrong about that, but it's not going after power is not getting off to the house of lords. Oxford, jaw public schools is trying to redistribute wealth within broad in existing system. But an older radical party was the new Gladstone liberal would have gone for power. So we started with this cliche that to the Jacob re smoke line, which is that may risks making the great mistake that people make and splitting the party. And keeping the potty as power for generations. But on your account actually, the way this could have gone would have killed the conservative party together, and we should see this is the period of miracle of the conservative party that it's still the same party. It's still alive. Dan? Give the credit not that he had ideas or anything, but he had Guston can't show. They had I think there's more to Disraeli than just in. Can you had custody? I mean, I think the thing in a goes back, I think to something, which she says, actually, in one of his speeches on big speech. I think the Corneau's saying the party of the people in the party of England and that's what is rarely succeeded in keeping the conservative party, I think in the game because as the part of England part as the party of England and, and that is why it's not a coincidence. Then it's the ability to tie an English question as a critique of homo for island to empire. That is so central to the person who that really does reinvent.

"You're with the briefing on, Monaco twenty four we continue next to Denmark, where social Democrats have on the country's election defeating. The outgoing center-right liberal party social democrat leader, Frederiksen took almost twenty six percent of the vote. Her party will fall. The minority government cooling, another smaller groups for support will join us now from all is Marcus Copenhagen correspondent, Michael booth could off into you. Michael, this was the way it seemed this was going to go. How did you great the result, a high Tom? Yeah. Well, I think what we're seeing is Demark doing the most Denmark ish thing and moving towards the center. The election has kind of given a an injection to the four main, centrist parties. We've seen the fringe parties absolutely collapse of the Danish, People's Party. Which you remember was one of the three main parties, the loss election. With over twenty percent of the vote, they've had the biggest fall in political history and down to eight point seven percent. But as you say. It's looking very likely that meta Frederickson is going to become the youngest ever prime minister of democracy. The second female prime minister democracies age forty one. The social Democrats actually fell a little bit back at this election. But that's the paradox of Danish politics as you say that nearly twenty six percent but that was down nearly half a percent. But because of the nature of coalition politics here, Hearn, three other leftist parties, look likely once they finished their horse, trading and visiting the Queen and not kind of stuff today. She looks likely to be the prime minister the other strange thing that did happen during the election is her arch-rival prime minister laws, looker Rasmusen that she reached out and suggested that his liberal party might form a coalition with the social Democrats, but that was largely rebuffed by the social Democrats, but the general tone is the main centrist parties looked likely to work together, even across the old red block divide. What one and that's interesting. Mark Lamont, I wanted to ask you about is whether the actual. Performance at the ballot box tells us anything more about that, that more nuance shift around the center, and some of the Matic's, because, of course, match Frederick tickly talking about immigration, which was more understand, to be the preserve of populist, nationalist, DeMarcus. It was elsewhere near pain blog. She's kind of stolen some ground there. Do we, can we get any sense from the early moves in terms of coalition building, how specific narrative will play out because she has unquestionably shifted towards the right on that issue in particular? Yes, he's absolutely shadowed, not just the liberal party, but the former partners in government, the Danish, People's Party. She shuttled pretty much every word in terms of tightening, those immigration policies, that is the main sticking point in negotiations that are happening now with her left bloc partners. Particularly the radical party radical liberal party, which very very well and increased its show the vote by modern eight and half percent. So they have a good. You may see a softening in the immigration policies of social Democrats. Maybe not that, that's up for grabs, but rare on the fall. Right. There was a lot of activity. We have an eccentric. Neo-fascist youtuber, who launched amid great fanfare, and completely and utterly failed to get anywhere and is not coming into parliament, but that didn't stop him getting a huge amount of coverage and then we also have a new far right? Party called new boiler, which means the new right who are now in parliament with four members of parliament. So it's not as clear up to we can't be celebrating the end of politics. It's just the landscape has shifted. So it's going to be interesting to see how that pans out. The other big news. Demos, foreign minister has completely failed to come into parliament this time lead of the economic liberal party. The liberal alliance alliance. Samuelson is out and has just stood down lead of that party says, still some pretty significant shifts, which will have ramifications that will have to go. I just want to ask you Mark briefly about something which which intrigues me 'cause you and I spoken on this and other programs about sort of social policy and social issues in democratise, striking Frederickson talked about putting welfare for st- and cheese. Add lots to say about welfare education children's future. I wonder sort of put it crudely..

"No way has formed its first conservative majority government thirty years, the country's either seen socialists, empower or more recently. There's been a series of centre right minority governments with the prime minister and a Sobek meaning needing the support of opposition parties just to get laws passed, but this breakthrough has come at a price and tell us more is Valerie Christiana, she's also correspondent for both British and US medium like to say she joins us on the line for Larry just expenses. What's happened here while you're correct? This is a historic I because we have a conservative led majority government Ernest Solberg, the prime minister started in two thousand thirteen is the most minority government just with the progress party and this has slowly expanded. They've had the collaboration with the liberal party, the Christian Democrats, but then they officially when into government with them in two thousand eight. Eighteen with the liberals so to became three. And now three have become four to include the Christian Democrats, securing a needed majority in order to get a stronger hand in government and getting their policies through and just tennis how the offensive having a series of minority government has been on on the way that new ways being able to get its policies done. Well, I should I stress that minority governments are actually more the rule than the exception so Norwich traditionally being a led by these minority governments, and they have to go swinging from party to party to get their support. But more recently in history you've seen like the Stoltenberg government under the labor party operating Dermot Giardi government and having a more stronger hand. And now you have this conservative government with the liberals and the Christian Democrats on their side, and they're able to push through their policy with greater ease in parliament without having to. Ask labor party in the other parties for their support. But this comes to price doesn't it? It does it does those big political costs because they've had to make concessions on the abortion law before the Christian Democrats would agree to join and what they have had to concede on is selective abortion, which means that in case of multiple, pregnancies. There would no longer allow the ability to selectively terminate one of the fetuses, but they did not have to concede on late term abortion. That was also apparently on the table. So the Christian Democrats won on that point. And they also got increased childcare benefits, but there was given take on both sides the progress party got their lower road tolls. They got to keep tax requoted as their lower taxes expected and the liberals they are very interested on the environmental side. So they were able to keep in place a restrictions from oil drilling off. Offshore low futon and best Roland up until the end of the parliamentary term in twenty twenty one. But yes, they had to concede. I on abortion before the Christian Democrats would even consider joining this four-party coalition. How much is it abortion K issue in no way JR. Politics and society. It seems to have been quite a big one this year so much so that it has had another political cost within the Christian Democratic party because Kanoute adult HUD, Ida who was the leader until today had proposed an alternative government with the labour party. But the labor party would never consider this abortion proposal. And so instead, they went to the other extreme and went into a center right government. So abortion for this political term has. Come to the forefront. It hasn't before. But again, it had made the Christian Democrats take a hard look at which direction. Do they want to go to they want to go with the socialists, or which has never historically happened, and in effect by Kanoute adult high that proposing this in what was considered big power play cost him his leadership role and has thrust the Christian Democrats into the arms of the center, right government? Now, you mentioned a moment ago the future of oil exploration and annoys up sedately crucial oil industry, there are those who wished to seek those who want to impose limits on exploration in the Arctic Ocean of Lois coast, and those who don't not withstanding the legal case going through about soft crabs at the moment. What is what's likely to happen here? Well, what we see is a continuation of the existing policy, which is that the. Three party governments had already said until the end of this parliamentary term in twenty twenty one..

"They're not doing anything of the sort. Right nothing. Nothing at all. I've seen nothing about this that they're upset about we're talking about policy thing. They're not talking about the fact that the fucking president is saying that I might use executive power to declare a state of emergency. This goes back to two thousand six and seven I wrote about this for reason at the time the Naomi wolf's that we're comparing to fascism and saying the enabling act of nineteen thirty three. April mentioned thirty-three and nobody's making those references anymore because it's just kind of deer gore at the moment. But I wanna pull one thing slightly back and actually want to throw this to the group as a as a question is that. Are we in a Apotex Anthony said something which I think is right? We're not gonna populist moment. Republican era. Are we becoming Europe in this sense? We've all we slowly become European is in particular senses in American politics. But are we becoming Europe in the sense that we need a social Democratic Liberal Party that we have two parties? Right. This is everyone. So this is fucking horrible feature of American politics. I actually don't think that because we see that when you have nine parties competing for things in Europe, the Swedish government Sweden had had an election in September. They still don't have a government everything about what we're talking about a government shutdown. They literally shade them. Really, no government, they pay their federal they pay their employees. But they do not have a functioning government because they've so many splinter Highland. All time. Good thing about that. And win a hand, by the way, if you think that populous fucking psychopaths don't get a say in European pony because you're not paying to you been politics. Do we want this kind of government? I don't know. But the one thing that I think is true is that you have something like libertarian free market classical liberal as they say in Europe, not in the fucking, Dave Rubin way. Which is like I want to associate with liberalism, despite the fact that I have Stefan year. What is his motive is by the way? Literally the man talking about IQ on the dumbest person I've ever read on the internet, not quite quite a feat. But I do appreciate that. He's pulled off the white nationalist mask. Tony. So because people were pushing back I mean years on that fucking stupid. This guy is a fucking embarrassment to the internet. The elegy to the internet. Those question is that these parties like let me say the F D J in Germany, the are they? These free the Free Democratic Party, which is which is a sort of free bucket party. They don't get a lot of attention. They don't get. This is a thing that libertarians have to actually confront their ideas are not nearly as popular when given sort of base example of explain this in thirty seconds on the stage. They're not nearly as popular as the Cortez's this that Trump's which is Trump, by the way is a Cortes in his own way. They are. Okay. Why I have to say on Qazi. We don't we don't know say that this is her name her name under the same. I in cares in my in my imagination. They are kind of the same person anymore. More effective.

Neva guys wanted to change that non-complying film individuals from thirty five thousand to seven hundred and if you were business from seventy to two point two million now walks thirty fall fair enough. But I'll tell you why because the natural resource monitors that Mexico Maria's is will. Thirty five thousand dollars white say behind seven hundred thousand barrels and said a few times seventy three point two million dollars.

Not solid anymore. We're headed got full backs up against the wall. So we can just be. What is this is not something that could happen this? This is actually happening. John I'm giving you this happened. We are living and breathing mission. You know, we can't even playing right saw here. So we can't protect their times. We we we've got a fall we protect the property. This you want to see the debris, then meshes garages or more particular right side.

Get banned these animals and reptiles identity and snipe anyway, clear election fit, we're gonna size more. If we've got more grazing land where they could escape this whole agenda is rubbish. Really? It's it's rough. Or just can't believe that. We're even talking about this people believe in. You know, what's interesting is. That's reminiscent of what happened in California with the fires out there. Governor Brown and his agenda twenty one and his wants to re wild. Yeah. The Endangered Species Act and the rewarding of well. It's a no use movement governor Jerry Brown's it convenient bogeyman for climate realists. I wonder if that's what caused the fires to burn with such intense. California's this re Wilding idea that may not be official, but it is happening anyway, because they're saying a lot of people are saying these fires were set deliberately I don't know. But many of the people were fighting those fires are saying that, you know, these these four seven been cleared of of instantly flammable material in a long time. They've just become gigantic tinderbox is with no mention of whatsoever. And so it sounds to me as though this is. Calculated to have precisely the effect that it's had. John, and and we've had messy follows here in Australia, and once, you know, delaying gets older scrubbing things like that. What did I days environmentalists gone retired for the game? So instead of clearing look for traffic on land is not arable crops. We've got plenty of that sort of did you know what you're doing.

I never fought for this country and take my head off to the people that have served and around the world. I should oldest.

They thought well, they're gonna lose it. They're gonna do. Got you. You know, Peter I'd like to bring brandy in on this conversation here because of the similarities. Between South Africa and South Australia. Now, we know what happened in Zimbabwe. When they ran the farmers out of there. We must have the land. So they got the land and then immediately commenced starving to death. I think they're on their third or fourth round of bringing the farmers back. But it's too late. Really? Because now the communist Chinese have their claws and an artificial hooks into that country. And they're doing the same thing with South Africa. So brandy Peter Peter Rennick. Other pita? I'm always, well, I know that Australia. There was a movement way that actually supported the South African farmers to pull them over. But as you know, liberals got involved, and and they pretend like it's not happening. We've got to we've got to really keep the pressure up there. I'll see you. You'd like more correct me if I'm wrong, but. It tight caught a few watch confinements. Well, another movement. They I have not heard of one single person actually going over. So I'm not sure if it's if it's a real news on not on. No sell Africa's potty breaks which is Russia.

"The wall. Time now to take a look on the daily at the stray Lian newspapers. We're joined once again by Monica's Sydney correspondent classes bag. Montefiore Clarisa unsurprisingly quite a lot of the story. Use these stories in the newspapers in general dominated by the extraordinary results in Wentworth the weekend which we would discussing earlier on the program wanna stop with this from the ustralian by the national affairs editor Simon Benson, and also by Greg Brown saying that a lot of liberal MP's a blaming Malcolm tone bowl, full the loss, how they manage delay this at the door of the outgoing MP. Exactly the Australian front page on Monday, read angry, impedes blade tumble. It was a big headline. I think that obviously when my contender was booted in the leadership spill, he gave up his seat of Wentworth which led led to this election. Now the liberal party has never lost the seat before. In Sydney, it was considered completely safe seat and the loss of it meetings at the future of Scott Morrison. Government isn't the balancing no longer has a majority government. Many people believe the shock result of independent Cameron. Phelps was due to public disenchantment over political backstopping squabbling essentially over the leadership spill and this sort of rolling rotation of prime ministers happening in Australia yet I Rana cly MP's still throwing mud around saying it was tumbles fault for not backing the liberal party candidate. David trauma. As you correctly to voca another string political colloquialism went worth is the state that the proverbial Drovers. Dog could've one for the liberal party. It is a walls, a thought of as completely on lose. -able doesn't not suggest that the liberal party have big problems and Malcolm Turnbull funding better things to do with his spare time than stuff. Let boxes. Yes, exactly. And that's why it's it's sort of it's it's a, it's a bit of a silly thing to go around blaming him. I'm not quite sure what he was meant to do a pop, my guess public endorsement. But unlike Tony Abbott, he didn't want to stick around impolitic. He wanted to get out of the liberal party to get on with things. I think it shows that people are fed up the nipple Ponti like I said, squabbling, but also they feel like the far right has hijacked it to some extent. So Phelps by contrast, she's gay. She's progressive. She's a woman. She's Jewish. She's very, very Ankeny to talk about climate change to talk about asylum seekers on Nihro and getting them off. So she's got very different values than liberal policy has been concentrating on in recent months, almost object, moving seamlessly alone to a story by Helen Davidson in the guardian. This is revealing the. Complement of home affairs and destroy his spent half a million dollars in legal fees in the last three months alone, responding to court case. We'll call it applications for medical transfers, asylum seekers on Nauru some of whom I believe have now been moved off the island. This story will not go away for stray in governments assigned from this story will be on this story. Is there any sense that anybody is yet figured out what a long term resolution to this is. That is an an and that's that's exactly the issues you say, obviously, activists here on a great many people of the population. I think the kind of people who voted in Phelps in Wentworth just want want all the children, all the assignments refugees to be taken off Nihro. Finally, the situation to be resolved and for especially children who is still stuck there to get the medical care that they need. There's a growing mental health crisis, at least the guardian reports that at least eleven children have been transferred in recent days alone and doctors reporting things like resignation syndrome, which is a reaction to extreme troll. No children refused eat, drink, leave the bed even to go to the toilet and occasionally come toki on responsive. With the guardian.

"McCain of. Course who obviously you know we all know the story Franken was shot down serving as a fighter pilot over Vietnam landed in a. Lake in in Hanoi where he was taken in. Beaten it already had a busted up leg broken arm they stabbed him with a bayonet in, the groin many of his wounds were not. Medically treated and he was forced to. Live with him he was tortured at the Hanoi Hilton when, the Vietnamese found out that his father was an Admiral. They were willing to to trade him to release, him, if he would made certain statements and he said no he was not going to be. Released unless everybody in that prison could come with him And of course Colonel bud day who is recognize the longtime war hero It was his his inspiration course he gave that but but again so there's no doubt that McCain's war. Record and service was incredibly heroic and brave to the very last eight The case of John McCain we have two narratives here you know it's. In it's fair to look at objectively at both narratives of course we talked about his aerobic actions in the, war in the and then, his his, political legacy and John McCain I think joke took delight in in in knowing that he could cross the aisle to get along, with Democrats and that may have been you. Know the motives operandi years ago when Republicans may add the represented the minority and or. If they represented the majority for that matter, they crossed the aisle to get things done but I think John McCain kind of lost sight of, what, the democrat, party had become it has become not just a liberal party but a progressive liberal party bordering on on the On on being a socialist party so do you. Want, to get. Along with those kinds of people can you get along with those kind of people. I my answer, would be no you cannot, and so I think John. McCain and, I think. Basically the the crowning blow was when he had. The decisive, vote in repealing ObamaCare comes in from his sick bed and everybody thought that he was going to vote in. Favor of repealing, ObamaCare and what did he do thumbs-down rejected it also had the McCain Feingold lack which the, supreme court overturned key elements, of that, that was his best known legislative work I believe it was unconstitutional in the supreme court I think upheld that the McCain Feingold, lack is not much of a legacy he. Worked with Ted Kennedy of all people on the number of things again you're right you. Just mentioned the the chance to repeal ObamaCare, which has been extremely burdensome stressful for most Americans He didn't get. That. Of course. He was not a member of the middle class he married into money remember his first wife Carol Was you, know she was the one that started, this whole POW thing with the. Bracelets and while, he was held, in captivity and you know after he returns home wasn't shortly thereafter, he kicks. Her to, the curb and of course for. Whatever reason I'm not. Sure what, the the marriage fell apart in any Mary's Cindy. McCain and she of. Course of the analyzer Bush Fortune. In Phoenix Arizona which he then used the money there to launch his first congressional and he ran in the seat of very Goldwater. So conservative iconic conservative legends so he had big shoes to. Fill, but and I. Don't think he did you know a lot of he was a. Hawk and that part of it I I love John McCain for that for the. Hell, he wanted. To make sure the military was always funded had the best equipment that part of John McCain was great on domestic issues he was horrifying and he's, often been called for his class well not much, class when, later on you admit that you really didn't want Sarah Palin you actually. Want to Joe Lieberman and yet the party talked you, out of itself again you're right a, tale of two McCain's jekyll-hyde to.

"I'm concerned by a lot of judge Kavanagh's record in this area certainly is a lot of writing out there. A lot of things you said that causes concerns for a lot of people, whether they're liberal, moderate or conservative Senator Chris codes. Thank you so much for being with us. We appreciate it as always, we want to get a bit of news from overseas. Australian Prime minister. Malcolm Turnbull has been out ousted after inter-party squabble with us. Now in London, NBC News International correspondent Cal Perry cow, my gosh, Turnbull was never a tight fit for the liberal party. It's a right of center party and this morning there there's talk about a differences in col- view on coal differences on on climate. Bills differences on immigration. What exactly tipped it over was a tipping point to have Turnbull pushed out of the liberal party leadership and effectively pushed out his prime minister. Listen, it may have been the immigration issue. This is almost like covering today in trouble democracies. This was a political coup. Malcolm Turnbull was basically politically assassinated behind closed doors. His party decided that he should no longer be the leader of this conservative party. As you said. He was always a bit uncomfortable in that role because he was a bit of a moderate. So what we're going to see now is Scott Morrison, he's the new leader of this party. He's going to be prime minister. He has almost no support eight percent support, and here's what he ran on shades of America here ran on immigration tougher immigration ran on the slogan, bring parliament back together. That sounds oddly like make America great again and to reinvest as you said in the coal sector. So we see not only. Swing to the right, but we see really bureaucracy unable to handle modern politics. This will be the seventh prime minister in just ten years. So a country that really does seem to be stumbling does seem to be stuttering a little bit when it comes to their political future before I toss it back to you, Joe. I wanted to filibuster a little bit here from London because I rarely get the chance on sport, and I wanted to preview for audience a little bit of what you've done. Recently went out to Stanford bridge to cover one of the greatest sports rivalries. Take a look. How can you describe it to allow the Yang's we'll foot Bo, no Sokha foot boat. May.

"Marriage debate, Christine full STA was one of one of the most vocal supporters of saying same sex marriage. She is a member of the liberal party. She is married to a woman. She's also the sister of Terni Abbott. It's a very, very strange twist and potentially could lead through one of the. Most one of the most consequential bridge-building between these two factions of the liberal party. All it could lead to something else. Who knows? It's to be continued CBC very much. So been just finally and very briefly, I, I always cite the killings next door documentary, going back, sort of a Hoffa generation -plicitly Australia about this obsession the country seems to have certainly the political personnel seems to have with assassinating. Their leaders are sort of, you know, it's like some ancient Rome always strikes me. Once the dust settles on this week, is there any chance that I don't know we we could see someone being given a bit of time and the appetite for this consonant people could could diminish, or is it is even that is like was impossible to predict I, there is still a lot of people who are predicting the Peter Dutton isn't finished that he wants to have another stab at the job. So potentially that could happen. It really depends on win. The election is held. My my guess would be that once the election happens eve, the government does lose. Then Bill shorten from the labor party takes over as prime minister, and they'll probably give him a fairly long shot in the role. I don't think the spinning door has finished for the liberal party. Yet. Peter Dutton is still hovering around the edges and way he ends up is still anyone's guess. He, he's, he's not potty. He hasn't been given a ministry. He certainly going to want that. Okay. Plenty still ponder Ben Roland who's been attempting to make sense of this week for us on the briefing monocle twenty four. Japan has appointed its first ever female fighter pilot. It's been hailed as a huge leap forward in the traditionally male dominated country. Fiona Wilson's Monaco's, Tokyo bureau chief and she joins us. Now on the line, I'm going to thank for talking to us about this. It is interesting, isn't it? We spoke unsolved and about how entrenched the whole sort of patriarchy. If you like of Japan is this is a very sort of visible and high profile. Well, departure from that. What do we know about the the fighter pilots in question? Well, MS Matsushima she's twenty six. She joined the f. it's called the Self Defense Force in two thousand fourteen and she actually. So she arrived just before the law changed basically two thousand fifteen. The little changed and women were allowed to become fighter pilots so is taken this long to train. Someone basically says she's the first to emerge an I. I did laugh that she said she was inspired by top gun. So. Tom Cruise has quite a lot to answer for what one of many things here yesterday wants to, but we, we should reflect a good headline. But the fact is service women are very small percentage on live all serving forces members its way down to single figures, isn't it? Yeah. Well, I mean for the Self Defense Force, it's six point, one percent. That's the figure I've seen the latest figure. I mean, actually to be fair to the government and they have said they're trying to double the number of women in it does take time. They're making these initiatives that tried to make it more peeling to women. I mean, traditionally the SDS people have to move around a lot and that just does not suit working women very well with children. So they've, they've got to change the culture. I think they're, they're acknowledging that now. So it's not just about saying, okay, women can fight. Now, it's about saying, can we make the day to day life within the SDF you know, more reasonable. So I think he's taking time the the figure that giving us, they'd like it to be nine percent women by two thousand and thirty. So it's not, you know, it's not happening very fast, but moving in the right direction. In the right direction indeed. And I suppose if we take step back and look at how Japan continues to lie behind the advanced nations, both in terms of representation of women in the military and more broadly just in the world of work..

"You only to the briefing first broadcast on the twenty. First of August, two thousand eighteen on monocle twenty four. Hello and welcome to the briefing coming to you. Live from studio one here at MacQuarie house in London. I am Mark was heap coming up to die. That liberal party room has confirmed my leadership and Julie's deputy leadership of the liberal party disunity undermines the ability of any government to get its job done. Bolster Alia's prime minister. Malcolm Turnbull has survived a snap leadership challenge, but cute key resignation spring and end to his tenure. We'll also find out why the Chinese People's Liberation Army's taking pause in Russia's military drills and then a bit later on just six show that nearly three quarters of students applications for creative industries women. But when it comes to actually senior positions in the industry drops to one quarter being women, do we give enough credit to women designers and we'll also find out how Germany's Raila Borsa saw discouraging and social behavior outside station. It's all that right here on the briefing with me, Markus hippie. Political crisis brewing for Australia's prime minister Markham Turnball. He's advised a leadership contest earlier, but as we go to air, we aren't sure how many of fiscally except scenes either resigned offer to resign from his stop team Monaco has been Ryland is here with the latest. So Ben last we heard there were only rumors of a leadership spill and now we see this happening. What what exactly is going on while ED's another astonishing period in Australian politics. Basically what has happened is that Malcolm Turnbull the prime minister tried to preempt a challenge to his leadership by calling an early leadership spill. He walked into the party room and said, the there is a vacancy at the top of the liberal party, and that was up for anyone's vote. They voted and Peter Dutton who was the former immigration minister and up until recently the home affairs minister. He what he's had into the ring. He lost the votes were forty eight to thirty five. So look didn't quite backfire on the prime minister, but it certainly didn't go. Well, it's important to note here that Peter Dutton hadn't done any campaigning will virtually no campaigning amongst his colleagues for the leadership of the party. So the fact that he managed to get thirty five votes in favour of a sitting, prime minister is quite an astonishing result there and look, there's every reason to expect that they will be another leadership challenge. Peter Dutton has been doing the rounds on trillion media and he's not being going to any effort whatsoever to hose down that speculation whether that will happen with that will happen tomorrow, whether it will happen next week is anyone's guess, but we can all be fairly certain that it's going to happen before the next election, which is due for next year due to give us a bit of context to what led to this warriors Morgantown when we turned against him, Malcolm Turnbull took over as prime minister from Tony Abbott after Tony Abbott had been a been getting consistently negative opinion polls. Now that was he's mandate for taking over the leader. Ship. Malcolm Turnbull has then intern being getting consistently negative opinion polls. And everyone has been saying for most of my life that politics should not be governed by opinion polls. And yet politics is still governed by opinion polls to the frustration of just about everyone involved. So Turnbull has always been struggling with a mandate to leave, but a mandate to lead rather. But there is another issue at play here, and that is the warring factions from within the liberal party, which of course is the conservative wing of stranding politics. There is these other section inside the party which is sort of unofficially led by Tony Abbott, Tony Abbott being the angry former prime minister who was Alstead from his seat and far too early, at least as far as he and his supporters are concerned, they've always been furious and Malcolm Turnbull who is much more centered in his political leadership style and much more popular amongst the electorate must be said, but the that wing of the party has really been looking for any reason to unseat him and early..

"It goes in New York they always have these little parties they used. To have was always the liberal party and the conservative. Party and normally the liberal party would endorse the democratic candidate whoever, that was in the conservative party would. Endorse the Republican candidate whoever that was occasionally it would vary I, remember when Rudy Giuliani was elected mayor of the first time he was also. The liberal party nominee for mayor and, it really helped him I think he, had the liberal party the conservative party and the Republican party, and he was. Able to win as mayor in a very very democratic city so Joe Crowley who one eighty three, percent of the vote last time when he's running for congress just in two thousand sixteen is going to. Be on the ballot in what's called the working families party now the, working families party is a Goku way, out there leftist party but he will be on the ballot and here's what Joe Lieberman, has to say He says Because the, policies, MS. Oh. Cossio Cortez advocates are so far from. The mainstream her election. In November Would make it harder for congress to stop fighting. And start fixing problems her election would hurt, congress, would. Hurt America and would hurt the Democratic Party, it doesn't have to Thanks to, a small percentage of primary votes all of the people. Of New York's fourteenth congressional district stand to lose a very effective Representative in Washington fortunately rights Joe Lieberman Joe, Crowley and the voters in his district can prevent this damage. How on election day his name will be on the ballot is the. Endorsed candidate of the working families party but for Mr, Crowley to have a chance of getting, reelected he will have to decide if he wants, to remain an active candidate I hope he does and. I I've got to say I hope. He does too because yes, he's, just one of four hundred and thirty five but it would send. A very powerful message to Democrats don't flirt with this. Extreme left-wing fringe one of the points that oh Cossio Cortez ran on where. She disagreed with Joe. Carlo Joe Crowley she wants to totally abolish ice and. What totally abolishing I Ice means inaugural place at not reform it's she wants. To totally abolish it that means no immigration enforcement at. All And that's not a position. At Nancy Pelosi supports a bunch of Democrats running for president do rebuke that position and here, is the, point there probably some people listening to me now who are in. That district or Republican and you're thinking oh yeah I will dutifully. Vote for the Republican candidate vote for Joe Crowley you vote Republican all the rest of the ballot and do that but vote for the Joe. Crowley name on the working families take it doesn't, mean you have to work vote for any other. Working families candidate it just means you. Have to vote against Alexandria Cossio Cortez Because the hard left is poison in, this country And it's very important that she lose Now? Why is Joe Lieberman writing about this and he knowledge is this at the end of his column because Joe experienced the same thing His last term in the US. Senate he was challenged in. A, primary because he was one of the? Majority of Democrats in the US Senate voted for the Iraq war Joe Lieberman was among them He was challenged in the primary by an. Extreme-left candidate named Ned Lamont And never Lamont beat Joe Lieberman in the primary But here's. The way, that Lieberman describes it in his. Column he says Mr Crowley faces a difficult choice I know because I face the, same choice in two thousand six after losing democrat primary Iran is an independent because I want it all the voters to decide whether I. Deserve to continue to, serve them in the Senate it was a risk but I concluded it was worth it to know that I. Had taken my fight for the kind of government. I believed in as far as I possibly could he won that race and he served the next six years as. An independent and toward the end of that period he ended up endorsing a Republican for the first time.
