"The day we have an interesting guests. Bruce Smith from hydro reuss. Why don't you just introduce yourself little eight? Great to be with you on the show and name is Bruce Smith I'm a Canadian living in America, and and the CEO and founder of a company called Hydro. What's grow? Yeah, hydro is a indoor rowing machine, and it uses some pretty revolutionary resistance mechanism technology to make it quiet, but the coolest thing. Thing about the machine. The part that we love the most about it is that we broadcast not fitness classes, but we actually take the experience of being out on the water rowing, and we have instructors out there. Who talked to you directly live on a beautiful twenty two inch, high definition screen with great speakers, so you actually experienced being out on the water and being part of a rowing crew you know from. From your living room or your bedroom or wherever you machine, so it's like having a penitent Kloss, except it's on a rowing machine that is extremely quiets why it whereas like putting us more broad, you know like almost feeding like you're dancing. Really off focusing on you know creating an immersive experience of being out there rowing exactly so we have trademark this idea of votaw reality and I love Peleton we have A. A time in the office they're they're totally great. It's really fun and it is. You said it's exactly right. It's like being at the club with your friends. You know you're not drinking or smoking, but you're you know you're listening to music or super photogenic people. You know it's fun experience and we love that that's great for us the coolest thing that we could think of doing to take this concept of live. Elo are and create an immersive experience so rather than going to the club every day for your workout, which is great, we can have great music and really really charismatic instructors, but you're actually out on the river, or on the bay, Miami beach or rowing by London, bridge, so, who do you think is it for? Is it like somebody that Audio Patent Than They WanNa? WanNa to mix up the workout as really somebody that is looking for different experience because they don't like going to a club, but they wanna have liberal quietness of actually being outdoors and row. It's for people who are looking for the very best experienced the best workout experience and the best way to connect with their friends, so Peleton has a leaderboard which is great. Great, but you're really competing. You're competing by yourself and you know not that many people have actually wrote out of the water in a boat with other people, but the experience of it is unbelievable. You're right on the water, but most importantly you're moving in complete rhythm with seven other people, Ya, howdy, howdy create that because if I'm Roy like, let's say like on. On, a big rowing team or like even dragon boating like a need to be in sync with everyone right because as soon somebody's out of things not working. That's exactly right. In human beings hardware. They love to do things in synchronicity with other people. It makes you feel better. It's like it's a genuine way of connecting and when you're biking, you know you're. You're like ninety five or one hundred beats per minute, and and really not moving in the same rhythm as as the instructor like you're having a shared experience, but it's not exactly the same rhythm when you're on the rowing machine, you're encouraged. It's actually really easy. You move every part of your body in exactly the same rhythm as the instructor, and so there's some brain. Brain science behind this you know the brain is an aerobic organ like a muscle, you not energy systems like like the rest of your body, and so every time you make a decision in your brain. You're using some energy, and so when you're exercising, you have to keep deciding to exercise and they're really really cool thing about rowing especially when you're rowing crew like. Like, not just on a machine by yourself in a room, but when you're rowing as part of a team, you turn off that decision making process in your brain, because the person that you're following the person in front of you is is making those decisions. You don't have to make them, so you achieve the state of flow much much faster and we know from. From our experience and I know from my experience as a national team coach that has it actually has a profound impact on people. It is the best exercise you can do. It's also US eighty six percent of your body's muscles when you're biking like forty forty five percent of your muscles with you have to use your arms and legs. It's like a full body. And your core and it improves your bone density also, so it really is like. If there was one pill that you could take, that would like. Make you friends and make you healthier. You take that pill. Of course. We feel like we've got that pill. We all would like that, but say so just saw. Listeners can really imagine how the product experience looks like so I'm imagining now you're sitting on a rowing machine and you have like a huge monitor of some sort right, and and you see an instructor like. How do you create that experience off? Somebody actually sitting in front of me. Somebody's sitting behind me and I'm not competing against. Against them, but we actually working together like how you create that certainly question, so this isn't like we didn't just go. Go to the river with some of our friends and get some go prost. We don't talk about our our workouts as we talk about them as episodes and we hired this really really amazing film team, and so we take all the experience that Hollywood and television. Television have created in the United States and we apply that skill in that art to capturing the whole experience of being out on the water, so we have four cameras. We have a team that is mixing and editing that you know. The most important part of this are two things number one is the rhythm, and so you never lose that rhythm and the instructor. Who's WHO's out. Out there with you is encouraging you to be in rhythm with everybody, and it's very very easy to follow like you do it instantly, even people who've never done it before within like two or three strokes there in the right rhythm, and then the other part is that emotional connection and two things contribute a lot to that one is music, so we have an amazing library of. Of Music and the other is making sure that when you're filming, you captured not just the rhythm, and the experience of being outside, and and the you know the environment of being out on the water, but also the eyes of the instructor is are the window to the soul, and it's it sounds trite, but it's. It's unbelievably true like you have to see. People's facing to be able. Able to read what's in there is and it, it's that experience being able to move your whole body in the same rhythm, AC- instructor and also connect with them. Because you feel what they're feeling, you know they're out on the water and they're excited about what they're doing. They're you know they're training for the US national team and they're sharing their passion for sport that they love. Love more than anything else, and it's really it is genuinely inspiring, and we thought just a crazy response from consumers, which is really encouraging, and
Romantic Bridges and Little Museums of Paris; Burgundy
"Of the small specialty museums in Paris were allowed to reopen weeks before the Lou, but just because they don't attract the big crowds of the famous museums doesn't mean they aren't worth your time in just a bit. We'll hear why they can be worth. Including in your travel plans next time you're in town and we'll explore what you'll find in the peaceful countryside of Burgundy and easy giant from Paris. Let's start. Today's very French edition of travel with Rick Steves along the banks of the Seine, the busy river that winds through the heart of the city. Paris to me, it's the capital of Europe and you can never get tired of ten. I just love the way the THEMM lined through. The city in the city faces. It's river and I also love the way it's laced together by bridges that just give so much meaning to your wondering through Paris. Lynch Lima is a journalist for the New York Times. She's written books about Paris to her. New Book is called. The river that made Paris, and she talks about the bridges that lease together the right bank and left bank. In Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me on your show I. Love The way your book. The Seine the river that made Paris illustrates the importance. To France end to Paris and of course, Paris was born on this end, wasn't it? Yes, there would not have been a Paris. Had it not been for the Senate and for the heels lessee tae the island that is the center, the heart of the city of Paris, and that goes back to Roman Times. Pre Roman Times Poetry Roman times absolutely now when we think about the send through the centuries through most of the centuries, it's been a mucky riverbank where. Where you've got all sorts of slime and sewer and garbage and poverty, and and then over the centuries built this wonderful embankment that sort of teams the river, and and makes it an elegant part of the city. Talk a bit about the embankment in Paris will the embankment of Paris really the way it looks like now was conceived in the nineteenth century at before that you could pretty much walk along the banks of the Seine and bring your cows and horses. Horses and dogs right into the river, your laundry, whatever now it's a little bit more challenging, although there are places right now in Paris that you can walk down into the river and go swimming if you're so inclined, but with this mighty embankment you also have elegant bridges, lacing it together to the right and the left bank, and one of my favorite things in Paris just to walk along the banks of the river, and in or cruise the river and enjoy the. The bridges I've got so many vivid memories of just being on the top of one of those river, Seine, tourist boats, and going under these glorious bridges, and the more you know about the context of these bridges, the more funded is to sail under them. Let's just go and there's four bridges that really come to mind from. Yes, I'd love to just talk about each of them as if we're cruising down the river and I. we come to the punt new. Means the Newbridge, right? It means the new bridge, even though it's the oldest bridge in Paris. And when it was built, it was finished in the beginning of the seventeenth century, it was a miracle was an architectural dazzling creation, because it was the first bridge that didn't have houses on either side, so that people would come to the pontiff and look at the expanse of the river. It became the heart and soul of Paris where. You would come and have all sorts of wild activities. You could join up for the army or by. Orange juice or have a tooth pulled or watch jugglers or exchange God. You could buy false teeth and glass is and wooden legs and life, poultry and skin whiteners, so it really was the place to be was a gathering place a Piazza for the city. It was. You know what that's exactly right? It's like a piazza in the shape of a bridge. Now when you said it had didn't have houses on either side. Are you talking like lined with houses and shops like the punt Vecchio in Florence and the London Bridge in. Exactly and that you finally had an open view to the river, and you didn't have these barriers in the shape of houses blocking your. Visual joy of Helseth Martavis city that has some pride because it's just a practical matter. If you had a bridge that you needed help, pay for and maintain. You'd rent out space to it and it would obliterate the fact that it feels like a bridge so London Bridge and the Punt Vecchio it would be lined by shops that were paying rent to the city, so they could have that great bridge. Bridge punt new F-. It's a piazza. That's great. The next bridge we come to is the punt art that right the what what does that mean, and how is it unique well? It's the bridge of the arts and I love this bridge. Because it joy. It's a walking bridge. It's a pedestrian bridge, and so it's a great bridge for picnicking, but if you stand front of this bridge at the Louvre. And look through a gorgeous courtyard, but not many people know about is called the core cafe, the square courtyard you can look through the arch, and you can see right across the bridge to the St to default on the other side of the river, which is where the economy foss says is head. You just feel like you've got this magical long view of Paris

The Rise of Portuguese Gastronomy in Britain
"Opening of the Hawaiian Bar Restaurant Bar Dole rowing London. Three years ago was a milestone for Portuguese greasy and in the British capital both critics and the public loves to the place and also Monaco showed its approval by including Doro in our fifty best restaurants list now. The success story continues us the founder Max Graham and his team prepared to open their second and location. This timing London cece waterbed as I'm then to look back at the past three years to talk about the new location and the revival of Portuguese. Food Food in Brayson Max. Graham joins me here Madari House Studio One Abbey early. I actually opened a pop restaurant back in two thousand fourteen in in Greek street. I was walking my family business. which is Churchill's put company that makes wine imports in the valley? So the d'oro has always been very much in my blood in my upbringing childhoods but really walking for Churchill's when I opened the pool house which was really focused. It was more of a marketing stunt than anything else that was a pup restaurants pop up wind pool bar and we showcase folio of wines and ports in some very very simple produce driven sharing boards and yet during that period. I think I started eating out in London particularly in the Soho area and I just realized that Portuguese foods was very badly represented. I mean a lots of Portuguese restaurants in Stockwell and I absolutely love those restaurants but there are different Soda Portuguese restaurant and you know I was really at the time. I'm loving bar. Fina unloving Morita on these concepts. That were really showcasing. Spanish cuisine in such a contemporary outwards. Outwards way I'm really engaging with Londoners. I'm getting them excited about gastronomy from abroad and I just felt. Portugal wasn't doing that in in London at the time. So you decided to fix that. Yeah I mean I. I started the process of putting together. Ideas Footballer on that culminated in the the opening in two thousand sixteen in between then others opened up some Portuguese restaurants. Nunu Open Tabatha and you know a few years ago. It was great that was about three three of US laundry. No Tobacco really pushing Portuguese food and of course like I said. There's lots of restaurants in stockwell London that really lead. You backed Portugal Assad way which is a sort of nostalgic way. I think it's interesting that you mentioned that before. You launched Bhadra you. You felt that Portuguese food wasn't particularly well represented in London for example. What do you think that was? I don't know maybe London wasn't ready when I was much younger. That was a restaurant on the Kings road called Tuba. It was a Portuguese restaurant. And you know they were showcasing Portuguese food and I don't think think it just didn't engage with London's at the time you know this was about fifteen years ago and I just think potentially Londoners the appetites it's for new experiences. New Cuisines has just snowballed and London just hungry for new concepts particularly when they're showcasing acing cuisines that are less represented. I think that comes in tandem with the fact that Portugal has just been having such a surge in tourism such exposure over the last five years. I mean Portugal. Now the past five years it's just a completely different country. I mean when I grew up importer. It's just so far away from what it is. Today I think in Portugal there is such a wealth of culinary Marie on wine tradition. And I think that these experiences already being heightened and I just think London it is now more than ever probably quite excited to engage with Puccio before we talk about your second restaurants. You're about to launch. Let's still talk about well. Well the first module has been like how strong of a vision. Did you have in regards to the menu as you mentioned you. Spent your childhood impose import. So did you have very strong. Opinions on wall belongs to the menu. And what doesn't so. We actually run a pop up in Puto for the summer for two months with my head chef at the time and we really use thoughts time to brainstorm ideas to travel around you you know. I'm I grew up in the north of Portugal so I'm very familiar with the northern cuisine. But what's so special about Portugal. I'm what's been so special about. The last three is building Baltar is really engaging and learning about those other regions which also rich in culinary and gastronomy but yeah at the time that would favorites from childhood's that were also dishes that we thought had identity which was very reimposed since a lot of the Times a small plates Portuguese concept. You know that's not really traditional. You have petit scores which are sort of small plates. It's butts traditionally wouldn't eat like that in Portugal. It's more about largest sharing dishes and so so you know I was conscious that I didn't want it to just mimic another Spanish tapas restaurant. I really wanted those decisions. And those menu items to speak the identity of Portugal's Strana me which is very much Atlantic driven and you've done a good job. Let's remember that was just a couple of years ago when we ranked as one of the world's what's best restaurants here US monocle very very generous and wonderful knowledge. You're very welcome now. You're opening your your second restaurant in the city. How much could you tell us about that? How different or how simulates the second body raccoons be compared to the first one so I think at London Bridge we? He was slightly limited in a way. By what we wanted to keep the menu short to the point we rotated every every season. There are some dishes that just don't move because they become so popular. That can actually sometimes be quite limiting when you wanting to show off a another hundred dishes that you've come across crossing excited about. I think that's really what the policier in Hof has been. What's been great about that is that we have just really been exploring? During Portugal's different regions different Tad was different recipes. Different Cultures and I think that our menu in the city just gives us a really great opportunity to scratch a little bit deeper about what Portuguese food is. What are those star dishes? By the way that are very much in demand. People may find from both restaurants. Well I think the Buccleuch Bras is one that has been a bit of a heritage buckle. Er Brash is shoestring potatoes very very thin chips which is gently scrambled with eggs and the so-called which we rehydrate for forty eight hours Solved with some olives lovely dish it should be very creamy and it's it's a real comfort food dish and I hope that that will be something that people enjoy in the city as much as they have done in London Bridge. But we're also taking some really exciting new dishes working on this lovely ill dish from the IRA Rawda which will be Friday deals with a Byron source which is really traditionally used on suckling pig. So it's a a white pepper black pepper golic source but it's great on the Friday deals as well how much you still have to be discovered from Portugal. Something the world hasn't quite goes familiar with yet. Every time I go home I think the world has discovered it even more so than the last time. It's just every time there's more people. It's a great points at the alignment with this buzzer tourism but also the locals really embracing the tourism. I think as more and more people go to Portugal. It also drives the experimentation of the chefs impeachable. So there's a wealth of traditional food as a starting point. You've got this book which is all a Bible. Maria alluded Vest who literally has written down all of Portugal's star dishes but then you've also got this generation of chefs Jeffs that went away from Portugal. Who have started coming back on bringing with them? A huge amounts of technical expertise on the taking these very traditional recipes on expanding Portuguese food is expanding those boundaries and considering how reached the Portuguese culinary culture. Do you think there are many dishes and many ingredients. The world has been discovered yet. Something you struggled to find from outside of Portugal I think Portuguese food is obviously hugely driven by the Atlantic. One thing that is very very hard to compete with even though we're in Ireland is the rich miss of produce on fish that you got on the coast of Portugal. You got wonderful. CARBONARA is down in the all. Gov You get incredible perception. which is a goose? Bonna cool on the north coast particularly something like Incredibly Hard Oughta find elsewhere. Something I'd love to put on our menu but it's just one of these ingredients. That's better left for Portugal and better enjoyed when you go visit. I mean there's a lot of dishes that we thought about putting on which would definitely challenge. I think people's perceptions but I mean you've could be the which is made with chicken's blood and you know and there's a lot of tripe and offal dishes in the north of Portugal which I think maybe will hold off from on the next restaurant where probably gonNA play a little bit more safe than that but maybe As a special once in a while maybe one day as we mentioned already. You're just about to open. Open your sick and restaurants in the city. What about after that? Do you have any longer term plans. Walt may happen after that. Yeah I mean. We now imports about fifty percents of all winus. Direct from Boutique produces in Portugal. One thing I've really liked to develop more of a wine shop Pango and also we bring in a lot of cheeses and shall coutries would love to develop a mercer which is a deadly concept. I mean the sky's the limit. You've got punch bakeries. which would be great to get involved in but Baldur in its core concept I think I think it definitely has potential insult to grow to one team or sites off to this Max Graham Phone Giraffe Bar Douro and the new restaurant in London's broad gate opens later eighty two this month
"london bridge" Discussed on The Leader
"Taken from the Evening Standard's editorial call them. This is the leader for the whole thing pick up the newspaper had two standard dot Koto UK slash comment in in a moment a tale of courage from London Bridge attack. Any kind kind of attack in a public place will cause fear. That is the aim of a terrorist. Like who's been con- who strapped a fake explosive vest his chest and killed two people. Jack Merit Additon SASCHA. Jones said London Bridge last month but somehow in amongst the chaos there are those who find the resilience to do extraordinary things. One of those stories has been revealed today as editorial column explains the recent London Bridge attack produced. Many heroes. John Crawley curly is one of them attending a conference on rehabilitation. Mr Crowley who was once jailed for murder after burglary did not hesitate to save. Save lives when he heard as mankind began his attack. He tackle the terrorist even though he believed he was wearing a live explosives vest. I he warned the police and told them to shoot. The attack was appalling. The loss of life heartbreaking but the way people responded shows. There's that society is still strong. A crime correspondent Anthony. Frowns is covering the story Anthony. John Crawley's revealed some amazing using details in this interview. He's done about what happened that day but he says he's not a hero. Yes exactly So John Kelly was one of the ex-prisoners who was at the event on London. Bridge that day and They all sprung into action to stop card and committing the offenses that. He may have gone on to do so. He's been giving it. He's given an interview with the BBC where he's talking about how he used a fire are extinguisher To spray him in the face and also At that time they did that. He had a suicide vest on. So He's actually screaming a you know. Basically calling his bluff telling him to go and detonate himself And was saying that e effectively he was prepared to die himself off to save other people which is extraordinary bravery and yet he does reject this idea as a hero and he says that Jack Merit would beat deep my hero. Yeah so Jack Actually mentored him and in fact they were friends So Jack who stub studied cryptology cryptology at Cambridge University. And also Saskia Jones as well. He was a volunteer They had actually They believed in rehabilitating tasting ex offenders including Mr Credit. And you know they are even if you look at the case of Mr early. It's worked as far as we can tell hell. Yeah that is interesting. This was a rehabilitation conference. He and Jack were friends. Does show that. Jack's work with offenders was effective. Yeah I mean it was something that Jack believed in very passionate about. I'm sure not. Everybody shares his views. But you know you almost have to think thank goodness there are people like Jack out there. Who who who are not following the narrative of Dino these people Bush should be jailed for the rest of their lives? Who actually tried to do something else next? Victor's you're Jeremy. Corbyn cast his vote. Have you not even a flooded. The polling station Bobbins he could stop these voters from casting their ballot and all over the country though reports of cues as people line up to have their say and one of the most important elections mode in history I had a total column. Has Hoping the very high turnout today is not about parties or spots on social media it hangs on the collective choice made by millions of individuals trying to do what they think is right the site of long queues of people waiting to vote this morning shows. They know elections count. That's why whatever else she do. Today we urge you to join them by taking part it matters. Even though a lot about this election has been dispiriting. None of the leaders have shifted people's impressions of them. Many people will vote for the outcome. They fair least rather than the one they actually want nonetheless. This paper hyper is clear that the best outcome is that Boris Johnson stays in Downing Street above all because Mr Corbett is not fit to be our prime minister. That is why we advocate vacate conservative. Vote today fight tomorrow. A few of the thousands of candidates standing we'll be MP's soon parliament will be back and we will have new ministers but today a politics is in the hands of the people. Make sure you are among them and if you haven't already then vote and if you can't stay up all night the result will be in a morning being news bulletins and too smart because at seven. Am just ask for the news from the Evening Standard. Now is the pantomime. Britain's greatest artful. Oh Oh yes oh. That debate would go on forever. But there is a great new Pan to opening opening in London at the Palladium or critic. Curtis has given. Goldilocks starring Paul. O'Grady Julian Clary and Nigel havers four stars which makes it as good as the national instigators revival of a taste of honey so tough he says goldilocks is in decently. Good Fun and he's coming on the PODCAST. Tell us why nick. That's a lot of stars for Pantomime. A discount embar review sort of Light Pinto as war your sort of relentlessly pummeled by Innuendo from Julian clary and Paula Grady in the lead roles and by bizarre variety acts and jokes from the Venture Lucas Comedian. WHO's very good dessert but in So it sort of relentless just rolls over you and you. You don't really have any option apartment to surrender. I mean on all does the same and is in that part of the joke. There's there's I think there's a core of Penta tradition but within that there's quite a lot of variation Quite a few London theatres like Acme Empire Stratford. East do their own centers. There's each year they take an old story but they write a proper plot around it usually make it locally relevant and trying to make it a bit more sort of substantial theatrical literally experience but there is still very much a place for the old school. celebrity-packed joke packed in you endo packed Pinto which we well no and possibly love. Why does Britain love this form of theater so much well? It's only a indigenous form of Thea to really It does stem from Greek and Roman traditions and from a French version. Called Pantomime Blanche but we have very much made made. Our own from abroad was asking me the other day to explain Pinto to them and I said well involves a man dressed as a woman and a girl boy Oy and usually topical jokes and a lot of people shouting. It's behind you and I just sorta tailed off after that because you looking at me very very strangely in these it is is absolutely uniquely. Britain Brenes must completely baffled people from other countries. Does anyone else have anything. I don't think anyone else does. I've certainly When I looked looked into in the past I've been unable to find it It's equivalent anywhere else. I think there are a few pennies that go on around the world but they tend to be for British experts. It's I think there's one in Los Angeles every year and when you go to abandon but unique obviously you're very professional theater critic. I can't help but get wrapped up in the atmosphere and I. I can't help shouting. He's behind you all those things. Do you feel like that too. I have been known to give into that sort of thing. And how does it attract such big STAS. Aw You know people like Paul O'Grady are in this Julian clary playing a character called the ringmaster which is a level of genius. I think needs to be called. Why do people do pat actor? Well IT'S A. It's a short engagement at a not a has an otherwise not very busy. Time of the year I think I didn't know what the fees are in Pinto. But would I imagine they get paid quite a decent sum of money for it particularly the very big names that the draw crowd. I put out a tweet earlier. This week about Julian clary being inducted into the Palladium Wall Hall of fame. It's what you thought you had to be passed over to the other side before this happened. I thought Jimmy tarbuck still with this. Is the play Diem. Who thought I'd that'd be on the ball at the Canadian human got more response from that from birth to that than anything I've ever done on social media before you get a guaranteed audience and you know you're GONNA be able to make people laugh at me? Call really underestimate that. And that's the leader. Please do subscribe scribes. You don't miss out on the shows we have coming up tomorrow.

"With questions over. How Jeremy Corbyn would react when faced with with a terror incident? Labor's Barry Gardner was asked if Mr Corbin would have agreed with the response to the London Bridge Terror Attack Matsue Northampton High Mount. What would you like to US Barry? Yes good morning joining in promoting Perry Just questioning really relationship. Friday A few weeks ago in relation to the American incident with the leader either have always this Mister cool beans comments to Barry and the rest of his shadow from bench believes that the action taken by the met police on forty was was the right one absolutely I think we should be praising The police for the way in which they did respond. They responded swiftly swiftly the off-duty policeman I understand. Also you know weighed in I believe was the person who who at least disarmed the The man of one of the nights is and so they behaved absolutely Impeccably and of course in in shooting the the Con They were acting to save at the public and it was the right thing to do in the circumstances and Jeremy Corbyn said at the same thing on this morning. So but why I think matt is slightly bemused by the fact that Jeremy Coleman did not think that was the right thing for the Americans to do with our data daddy but does think it's the right thing to do these that no I look very different circumstances and I think our our presumption any country where we are ruled by the rule of law should be that if it is possible to arrest and put somebody on trial for crimes. Then that is how it should be done and summary justice executed in the moment. That wasn't is justice without daddy was and while it was I think it was. It was done at the time. In fact he blew himself exact so he was wearing the vast justice as mine. Congress wearing the Americans didn't actually shoot him. He blew it. Wasn't I think a lot of people thought that was a very strange comments comment. Jeremy Corbyn to make well look I placed with anti-americanism center. I'm not going to get into anti-americanism look. America has been in a strong ally of the United Kingdom. I have many disagreements with the current administration in America and the American President But but the problem is Jeremy Corbyn Bovine. His default reaction seems to be well if America says this is what should happen. I'll think the opposite. I think of a single occasion ever the Where he supported American action on anything until you have and look I I? I'm not privy to all the votes that That Jeremy has supported or not. So that we're going into the realms but as to Max's question I think you know there is no no. The police acted impeccably in this in this occasion the acted swiftly the acting decisively the kept the public safe. It was the right thing to Tony. WHO's in incumbent? Holly Tiny. Yeah Hi Paying High Barry. I'm I'm lifelong member of the Labour Party. I have been since so it was Since I was able to I've many Jewish friends bend my family Off Israeli why Com Jeremy Corbyn apologized is the Jewish people the Jewish community for the Anti Semitism the that is clear that is evident in the Labor in the Labor Party. or around it. Because you are GONNA lose folks is like myself. I'm sorry Tony Look thanks for your question and I hope we don't lose you. That's the first thing I want to say because because obviously you're somebody who does believe Labor's values and many of the policies that we're putting forward in this manifesto why you say. Why didn't he apologize? And he has region then. He didn't Opportunity House. I'll address that but I do want to make it clear. He has apologized. He he put out a video in which he said how sorry he was for the deep pert that have been caused to the Jewish community by the party's failure to tackle this it much quicker engineer and I I think you know a video. Isn't it because you're reading from an autocue screen so you've got. Your words is in front of you. Know he's he's he's done it on other occasions as well and that makes it worse. Look I I. I can't tell you why he didn't apologize on that occasion. What I do see him trying to do? There is trying to explain that we have taken steps to improve the situation really important steps. And that's it's what he was trying to get across by doubling the number of lawyers who deal with these cases by speeding up the number of cases fourfold by making sure that these expulsions happened and when he became the leader of the party the wolves no system for dealing with this. He's put a system in place. He's insured that that wasn't a problem before we came in. Sorry you're wrong. Because actually half of all the cases outstanding cases in twenty sixteen predated Jeremy being being a member of the party they were lagging over not being being the generally by members of the Labor rule that they became members. The Party when became leader. Sorry that's not the way you know. There's always been this anti Semitism left me. Just let me just establish the fact okay. And the fact is that of the outstanding cases in twenty sixteen half more than half of those cases related to the period before Jeremy me became the leader of the party. Now we didn't deal with them quickly enough and there wasn't a process to deal with them quickly enough. He's now changed that. And that's important but what you talk about as this being an issue on the left of politics actually reports have shown an studies have shown that is a greater problem on the right of society and actually they. They've also done. An analysis of conservative voters versus Labour. Voters who are anti. Semitism is more prevalent amongst Conservative voters than Labor voters. And but we are looking at a mass party. We've got over five hundred Ms Vero percent point but when the number of Anti Semites in the party hearty can't apologize for even though he has done before. Aw when he can't even say the all of the sort of Rothschild thing the way on even say that there're anti-semitic in the same interview that will lead British Jews to think he's not on their side. Well that's wrong. And and what what he's done. John is putting process Education programs both within the party in our manifesto. It's clear that we want education programs in schools. Not Simply You you general programs of education but education programs about antisemitism about his arm phobia teaching children about quality quality from a very early.

"I think the Tories total lack of interest in that side of dealing with criminality. You can keep arguing and arguing to just lock people up forever but it's problematic. They're only very few people. You you get locked up for their whole life is something called a whole life order and it's reserved for the absolute most serious violent offenses had been con- survived live and been sent to prison. He could have been facing a whole life order for these two murders of Saskia Johnson and merit but the reality is the vast majority of prisoners. This still have to come out at some stage and the reasons for that complicate prisons would overflow. We will not one of those incarcerated nations in Europe and we'll say it costs zillow and that's a brutal reality. That's why we don't lock people up forever. So you have to have a more nuanced approach this and think how can we rehabilitate these people. How do the Taurean Taurean Labor responses compare conservatives are narrowly focusing on sentencing an early release? They're focusing on the punitive and it's an relatively easy conversation for them to have legislation can be changed to send people to prison for longer. You have the appearance of being tough softened clamping down on these awful atrocities and It tends to work well with broad swathes of the electorate labor saying the world's more complicated than that and you need to address the rehabilitative issues. One of those public services cut back as they have been during the the past decade. They leave behind huge gaps and that can lead to miss chances to intervene in the lives of people who go on to commit absolutely inexcusable acts. Jeremy Kobe's getting into some of the causes behind this kind of Bay and he's going right back and looking at British foreign policy and the response to the Iraq war and they sort of issues what we do the hardest things one property prison service. So that's the prison officers. His are able to do their job. Both been prison officers as well as educators as what is people deal with dangerous prisoners who've committed very dangerous very serious offenses assist secondly that to be a psychological assessment of somebody in his situation before they are released and after that we have the probation service worthy of the name. Both parties are definitely is the issue. I think it was labor actually first off the mark to start trying to talk about police numbers on Friday night and then it moved into this issue about sentencing and automatic release from Dixon. Party is all of this reflected in the manifestos. The two manifestos Present two different offers when it comes to crime and justice so the Conservatives going fully down the punitive route tough talk on crime tougher sentences increase free stop and search. Let's build more prison places that kind of stuff What they ignoring is causes of crime? Say Hi off. His evidence shows for example pulling gangs Exclusion from schools ruled complex social problems. That need to be tackled as well as have an effective punitive system. Labor is talking about investing in probation sector and took my best imprisons as well so that they have effective rehabilitation processes if you bringing the Liberal Democrats salute them manifesto as well. They offer even more than labored. Have on down that more progressive rate. That sort of evidence led route where they're looking for ways to reduce re offending and so so on isn't the most heartbreaking part of this that the people who murdered Sascha and Jack seem to be so committed to the idea. That people could be rehabilitated. It's such an emotional subject. When people lose their lives and terrorism terrorism is such an emotional subject is important is to take a step back and not lose sight of the value being able to help assist people to turn their lives around importance of hope when dealing with offenders in giving them a chance to return to society contributing the best way they can Jamie? Thank you very much thank do that was Jamie Grayson do go to the website to read. David merits impassioned piece about response to his sons. They're coming up politicians holdback breath as donald trump returns to London in the middle of a general the election now NATO describes itself as the most successful military alliance in history and this week. It's annual leaders. Meeting has brought a number of heads of states to London among them is. US President Donald Trump. WHO's a rival is likely to shake up both the NATO summit I'm the UK general election as our diplomatic editor? Patrick Winter explains. It's the first time that Johnson's really as prime crime is too hot to host a big event like this. It's a test for him. But the strangest part of that test is the degree to which he can make the most powerful man on earth. Stay Day silent. One of belabors Lousy Successful Tag Klein's has been to say that the trade talks wchs will include changes to the chess medicines pricing be increased etc and lost bosoms. Wants is trump to wade into to that issue and I think if he does speak to this summit there will be a very large piece of paper in front of him saying the. NHS is not on the table in any trade talks and he'll be street that out repeatedly the real politics will be what he tries to attack the brexit deal. That Boris Johnson's trying to get through Palman. This election is launching. About trump is very close to Farrar Nitra Frosh Brexit SALITA and for are still attacking that deal saying. It's not going to make the case of independent and it might make trade deals with America impossible and trump listens to Faraj in. It's just possible. He will echo what Farrar says Rautenbach Johnson says and that would be embarrassing for Johnson whose whole method method through. This election is really to be as risk free as possible and his voip controversy. There are plenty develop people that the president could attack at this summit which would puffing. Well preoccupy him keep him in the headlines but not in with domestic UK headlines. I'm he could take far micro French president because of the way in which. He's trying to build a stronger European defence arm and Tom. I'm feel America's GONNA be excluded. It's companies excluded from that. He could equally have a huge row with the Turkish President That again because agonists has decided to buy some Russian defense missiles which the American military send if Turkey go ahead with the purchase of the Russian defense system it really puts the I hope questioning of Turkey's membership of NATO at risk. I could imagine just because of the backdrop of the terrorist incident last week that he learned amass at con someone who trump's regularly send off a tweet Atari two will be in his line of sight. Los I'm Michael Stone cold loser and you can can see him saying something similar again. The absolute best outcome commits that trump doesn't open his mouth that he doesn't look at his phone and hit the twitter button and he leaves on Wednesday night smiling but totally opaque is what he thinks about either the UK election. We're about NATO sort of feels like it's not trump's nature and I think he's always less than flattering to be told that the best way you can help me in an election issue. Say nothing at all. I mean if you can. America trump loves going around quite medium grade elections governorships endorsing the Republican candidate making speeches for them and whether it succeeds or not he believes he brings things Home Bacon for somebody and it will be tough for him to be told that actually you'll sell them pop in the UK that to me. It's best if you keep quiet. That's the way you can can help somebody. And this will suggest against nature to show that kind of self restraint is not the man he is. That was Patrick Winter.

This is the leader of the whole thing. Pick up the newspaper or head to stand dot Koto UK Slash Cohen. In a moment the questions we should be asking in the wake of the London Bridge attack attack. The country's political leaders stood beside each other is. Silence fell before the bells rang at Guildhall Yard in London. Boris Johnson Jeremy Corbyn and city-khan joined members embers of the public at the vigil to honor Twenty Five Year. Old Jack Matters and twenty-three-year-old Saskia Jones. They were the victims of Azman. Come a convicted terrorist released early on license. There are many questions over how he was able to fool authorities into letting him into London and go to the prisoner rehabilitation event. Jack and Sascha was supporting but our editorial column says the Work of those two young people should not be sacrificed for political gain. Jack Merit and and Saskia Jones were talented and caring. Young people who were helping offenders imprisoned returned to society and give support to victims of crime. Our Oh beautiful. Talented boy died during what he loved surrounded by people he loved and who loved him. Mr Mertz family said was full of compassion. By contrast the response from political leaders has been predictable and less impressive from Labor there have been stock complaints about cuts. What's that the man who carried out? The attack has had resources lavished on his case. The problem is that this didn't stop him. The Conservatives have resorted to their lock him up and throw away the key approach that we thought had been consigned to the dustbin of failed ideas. The way whose main con- was convicted sentenced and then released. Allie was obviously floored. We need to know why but rolling out headline chasing claims even while police were still on the scene of the attack. It doesn't help a home. Affairs added to modern. Bentham is with a piece in the standard looking at the work of the intelligence services in this area and Martin. They work extremely really hard. But they can't always keep us safe no and particularly given the relatively recent phenomenon of people carrying out these very crude attacks with weapons such as knives or indeed vehicles virtually impossible obviously to stop people getting those type of weapons and virtually impossible potentially at least a to identify the moment at which somebody might carry out such an attack when particularly if they seem to be behaving quite well beforehand and show. Yeah no particular signs back in the day you had the al Qaeda type plus and they were very very complicated plots involving explosives extensive number of people designed to bring down aircraft and so on which obviously we have absolutely catastrophic consequences if there ever realized but give a lot of opportunity soon issey potentially for the security service and others to intercept detect. What's happening not quite the same when somebody just decided to pick up a knife and go out and randomly attacked people? This is a man who was being monitored who had attack who was banned from London but loudon in on a on a can of free pass for the day. The must be so many questions being asked right now. All we know he was complying with the terms of his release lease and he was appearing to be a model reformed prisoner. That doesn't seem as we don't know the full details of the background of the case. Yes and no oh. The facts may emerge but as as it stands. That's the best of our knowledge that he was showing no signs. Ding anything untoward indeed was quite the reverse. And that's obviously is a problem. It's not clear whether he was genuinely trying to reform and then suddenly reverted or whether he always was concealing his true intense and just waited until he was given this opportunity of coming to London. A carry it out. So how do they try to keep a safe in these ever. Changing strategies used by terrorists. How did he keep ahead of them? Well I think obviously one answer in in this case. What's particularly frustrating? I think for those in M I. Five and police release is that they caught this man once involved in a series very very serious plot he was in prison. He was originally given an indeterminate sentence. which would have required him to have received parole board sanction before he was ever released in May have kept him in prison for longer over that changes result of a court of appeal ruling? Sofer in one one sense. They did their job. They caught a dangerous person and then he's back on the streets in a problem. So there is an issue there about how long people serve and that obviously overseas being part of the political discourse over the last twenty four hours when people are out which most people eventually will come out is then a question of prioritizing and of course what we see is what the other people what the risk is of the other people that are monitoring the three thousand active subjects of interest is another twenty ninety thousand also so called close objects of interest roughly speaking and so. There's a lot of people who potentially could pose a threat and of course there a active plots underway. Unfortunately all the time and so. That's where they dedicate their resource if they had more resource theoretically they could do a bit more. Oh but actually unless you WANNA go down. The road of having thousands of people pursued twenty four hours a day by law enforcement is an spies and so on then. You can't possibly again have a fail safe system of trying to detect when somebody's going to do something so simple when Addo the names names and faces of the two victims of this attack. I think there's something that just adds to the tragedy. These were too young people university graduates. Let's who were walking to help. Offenders is very sad outcome. Isn't it that those people who believe in us and achieve success mean of course one of the points points is that it does achieve success and this scheme appears to being reasonably successful but as with all schemes. It can't it can't be one hundred percent successful and light to be one hundred percent successful there will always be people who don't respond or whatever and as I say may be the case that he was responding and then suddenly something has happened. That's flipped him back into a different direction. We just don't know that but they're obviously all people who have been through that scheme and others who have successfully reintegrated ultimately for anybody who is is going to come out that has to be the the right approach to try to find ways to reintegrate them to divert them from what they were doing to doing. Something more constructive and nothing. Of course it's been documented. Hasn't let one or two of those who rushed to the onto the bridge to try to stop. Further attacks were indeed part of that cohort of free debt. Free Defenders who were trying to rehabilitate themselves so courage no credit to them and that's an example. Perhaps of people who've done unbound things doing the right thing so we don't give up no another thing we ever should do.

"london bridge" Discussed on LBC Election 2019
"Thanks for downloading the daily. The trail. I'm Sheila fogarty on Demento. Coming up we'll talk about the debate on Channel Four about the environment. We'll talk about the debate that took place between between Nick Ferrari. LBC's callers and Boris Johnson. The question and answers that took place this morning there. And there's a seven way debate to look forward to in Cardiff tonight. We'll also touch on that upcoming visit by the US president. Donald Trump. But I think he and it probably behoves us to begin with what as we speak is an ongoing police response response to what they say. They're treating as a terrorist attack in central London. Will you've just come over Sheila in this broke doing your show. I think it happened at one. Fifty eight around. What time it what you learned about it but just take us a little bit behind the scenes as to what happens when you're on air and you learn something's happened because it is an opportunity for any radio station presenter to get very very wrong now? I think we pride ourselves on BBC of not getting it wrong on these occasions. The the key thing is only what you know it is. That's made difficult by social media and I'll give you an example of it in a moment of what I've just done on myself because you can't wanting nor what social media is showing you it social media that you know you can trust. I should add because all kinds of nonsense on social media But but you're right. It is to take people people behind the scenes. There is a moment when you're talking about whatever it is you're talking about before the incident starts and then a a judgment has to be made as to whether you abandoned everything else and focus focus on this and we made that decision very early today to do that because if you think of the recent terror attacks whether it's Manchester whether it's London Bridge IMBERA market walk at the scene of today's apparent attack any if the Westminster taxing the people are very nervous out there on the streets of the United Kingdom about about terror attacks so he I think he's right to address it. It's right to treat it with caution but in this instance where I did Tip dipoto into speculation when these extraordinary videos emerged and we had four or five of them from different sources different angles on the same incident of whether first of all four or five am men's plainclothesmen repeat just be civilians walking along The the bridge had detained. The man had disabled the man one way or another and one of those pedestrians really seems to have been able to take a huge foot long knife of this individual and remember that the police say that they were called initially to a stabbing and we now know that a number of people have been injured but at that point that the video and it tallied with the eyewitness accounts we were getting from people calling into. LBC was just extraordinary. The speed with which the police dragged the civilians off that man and then shot him. Well that video. I was sent on WHATSAPP by black cabdriver. Who got my phone number in his system from a job that he picked me up on six six months ago and I sent it to Adrian sharing who does all digital stuff? LBC and say look. I don't know how verify this but hey you go anyway that I got back to the cabdriver. I have seen this on twitter as well so I just left it there but it is incredibly important that you do you at least you have to be shores. You can The these things are real because I in theory could be a video of anything I know so it. WHOA beyond whether it's real and I think given the The numbers of of of examples of that video that we had from so many different angles and different sources. Who says we were? We were quick to convinced it was real does then the question of the degree to which broadcasting things like that might get in the way of the investigation the way at broadcasting or talking about things like that may cause distress to people who are caught up in it or know that their loved one has been caught up in it but don't know the extent to which the left one is caught up in all kinds of very very quick judgments to make a from journalist point of view but thinking of the police who are current. Now as we speak still tackling this incident the speed need which they have to make judgments about whether to tasers someone whether to shoot someone that seems to have been what it was. The police have confirmed that they did shoot a man and they appear to have shot him dead based on the images I've seen and the speed with which they have to make those decisions and again we'll find out in time exactly what what was behind it and I had at least one caller a an eye when he wasn't an eyewitness apologies. His wife and mother-in-law were on a bus on the bridge when the incident happened and and they were. They saw it happen she. She rang a husband to say they were safe. They were hiding in a building she saw it happened at the police immediately. Got Off the bus and told them to just go go away go anywhere just get away. She said that she saw a a suicide vest on the man again. We have not had confirmation of that. I don't know whether that's true or not. The people in a panic see what they mean she. She may be right but it's an example of why we have to. What was so much caution because when you see what you think is a terrorist attack everything you know about a terrorist attack is already in your brain? And it's you know you're right. You have to tread with such caution on these things and and taste seamless because something very serious is happening an and some people ahead. I think the other thing to say in these circumstances a on you and I between us have covered many more terrorist attacks. We'd like to even remember. The audience comes into its own doesn't it. Because Wale reliant on people phoning in saying what. They've seen a lot of people. I'm not I'm not going to say that I thought is so now we see but it's pretty close behind behind the I thought I was. I was dipping around the house watching Sky News. I listen to you. Switched on five. Live to see what they were doing. They didn't even cover for it until nearly three o'clock so but I mean that's that's a big decision to make to think as you if for what is the point when when you go into rolling news mode and I think we tend to do that probably a little earlier than some others. Yes and If I think my sense is cover it and then if it turns out that it's a smaller incident. It's not a terrorist incident. It's a it's a crime and it may be a serious crime but if it turns out that fifteen minutes later the police are standing down. They've control the situation and everything is being dealt with. We'll find leave it but if you do develop those kind of spidey sense about these things and and do you remember that Oxford Circus incidents that loss Christmas or the Christmas before that point on right from the start there was something in in the back of my head saying. Don't go too heavy on this because I'm not sure this is what everyone thinks it is and I can remember after about three quarters of an hour of it it. I just thought I said to my producer. I think we should come away from this. I really don't think this is going where people seem to think it is going and I remember guessing advice. Shall we say from on high. No you carry on with it but I remember at six o'clock Just made the decision. I'm not going to carry on with us. And it was the right decision because he you know the the degree to which you turn you turn it into. There's a danger of turning it into some form of entertainment and and it very much. Isn't that interesting. The and let me just say as well that lets move onto the political I think because there's there's all may not know. The event is still alive. But I'm still active but not actually pretty recording this quarter possible still in the first couple of hours and Boris Johnson from his constituency to number ten to receive security updates. Tate's on London Bridge and there were already people on twitter and elsewhere saying oh well this is planned this will help the government and the same dreadful events events. Similar events happened in the two thousand seventeen election. Didn't they in the same things were said. And actually it didn't help it didn't can help the the The Conservative Party at all no. I'm trying to remember how far out from polling day that was I think it was a bit further than this. And `and my memory of it and you should always be careful if your memory of these incidents but my memory of it was that you're right. The consensus was that if Theresa may handle that right right she would go soaring ahead in the polls even further ahead than she was but actually She didn't at all and we had a fairly short footed response to it and so far we've seen responses from both party leaders softening so I'm not sure things like this and this doesn't seem to be from what we know. Now shall we say on the major side of terror attack. Say I I'm not sure it will have any political vacations too. I hope you're right. But I'm also conscious of the fact that the police were really urging people to get out of the cafes and restaurants and bars and shops around borough market because they have they have to send in the sniffer dogs. They have to make sure that was over here. I mean I remember covering the dreadful attacks in Oslo under toy troy island in in Norway and you know there was a bomb that killed six people in central slow. While everybody's attention was on. That Breivik was on that island. Killing the two seventy teenagers in some of their teachers and family. I mean you know so. Police have to assume that that there's a lot still going on and you know as says the rest of US might.
