"london press" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"It's 1836 in Sydney 8 36 in Zürich. Let's continue now with today's newspapers and joining me down the line is Vincent mcavoy who's a political reporter and a regular monocle 24 voice. Vincent good morning to you. We've just been hearing from Scott on the U.S. state of the nation's speech. And I wonder how The New York Times is reporting that. Well, good morning. Yeah, The New York Times talking about those key points, Russia, in the speech, obviously dominating. Obviously, had to be hastily rewritten from what they would have been doing just even a week ago. And The New York Times talking about Joe Biden emulating what European leaders have done going after things like the luxury homes, the luxury apartments, the luxury yachts, the Russians have in New York and in places around the United States. And also just turning to the times of London. It is interesting the framing very much from the London press seems to be, is this Joe Biden's moment to reunite America. It's something that he came into office pledging to do, but has struggled with so heavily in his first year. He went into the speech only at about 41% approval, but this is very much him trying to say that this is going to be a collective effort. You did see some bypassed and last night, many members in the speech in Republican and Democrats are wearing either lapel badges or something, some item of yellow and blue to show their support for Ukraine. There was a standing ovation for the Ukrainian ambassador who was Jill Biden's guest at the speech, sitting with her. So there is some hope I think that he can maybe try and heal some of the divides in America by focus of its effort and by maybe pulling the Republican Party away from the extreme fringes it's been on by having this kind of unifying thing that they have to deal with, which is Putin's aggression, which now Republicans in America can not deny and can not continue to praise him as some svengali over the seas. He is now a threat to global democracy. There is a really interesting piece in The Guardian today by a young Russian talking about the fact that he feels that Putin is also digging his own grave. Yes, peace by Sergei folden, who's a writer who lives abroad in Tbilisi. And I think if anyone knows any Russians, they will tell you themselves. They just get bored of people always asking them. So what do you think about Vladimir Putin? It is something that we all for the last 20 years. He is someone who has kind of fascinated the imagination and Sergei Foden's piece is interesting. He says that he thinks Putin is very engraved despite the grip that the state media has on a lot of Russians. When the economic sanctions really start to be felt, people will start to question things more, but he talks about the generation that's grown up post Cold War children raised in the 1990s, how they don't get their news from the state sources, how they do get it from social media. But one thing he does talk about is the fact that Putin has effectively turned Russia into a giant jail. He talks about these new police scrubs that have popped up like the Ross gardenia, which is Russia's internal military force whose simple job is to patrol cities and they look for anything suspicious and beat up people that doesn't matter if you're 18 years old or he says a pregnant middle aged woman. They'll take you into the back of a van and beat up. So whilst he is saying this from a physician abroad and where the ex pats who are Russians also seem to agree that Putin has made a catastrophic mistake, the hold that he has on traditional media and just on the streets in Moscow is still pretty chilling. Let's turn now to the telegraph and this is something we were speaking to Stephen D L about a little bit earlier is Putin's appearance and the fact that he may be unwell. I think it's something a lot of people have commented on. I think before the pandemic, there was a lot of talk about Putin's appearance changing. He had slightly turned into the very much slightly Botox, perhaps fillers, old cat lady type image. And obviously now in the past two years, he's been locked away. We had the details of that and it is that show with that tunnel, not really seeing anyone. And I think like many people in the pandemic, he's probably reflected a lot on his life. And what he wants to do in the future. And so the isolation hasn't helped with that. And so the telegraph goes through potential reasons why he's looking more bloated. One, which is a theory, which is done the rounds, definitely, is that he perhaps has been taking steroids, and that's why he's got the puffy face. One thing that we know that long-term use of steroids can do is cause roid rage, which is essentially where people start to become more and more angry, they lose their decision making capacity, and that is something talks about the long tables, continuing to talk to even his own cabinet. Via these long tables, keeping this distance people suggesting that maybe he is ill with something that has compromised his immune system on top of those fears of COVID. So all sorts of theories going about. It is a little bit of a criminology. We're all sort of putting on our doctors, psychoanalysts, hat and trying to look at it. But I think we have to accept that the world has lived through a two years like no other. And we all know from people in our own lives that have had strange and sometimes sad effects on people and it seems that Putin like the rest of us has had a lot of time to think and perhaps given the fact he's almost 70 as accelerated whatever long-term timeline he had with his Ukraine obsession. Finally, let's have a look at The Guardian and the cultural impact on Russia. We've heard already that Russians abroad different ballets that were touring have had to cancel their programs. But this is, I think, what I'm going to call glitter ball climb this evening. That's what you win in strictly come dancing. Strictly come dancing is the most successful TV format in the world. It originated from the BBC in the early 2000s. It's now in over 150 territories across the world. It's a huge cash cow for the BBC. And the Russian version, which is currently on air. The BBC has pulled the license for that franchise and also for programming that's already been sold. It says it shouldn't air any more episodes of David Attenborough's the green planet, which is a fantastic show that's been airing here in the UK as well. And that going forward, it will not sell any programming to Russia, ICV, the UK's main commercial broadcaster also doing the same. You've had Hollywood studios coming out in the past couple of days setting the likes of Disney, the likes of Warner Brothers, new releases will not be released in Russia. There is one thing that I think is curious in this though. We've not had much from the streamers. Now streaming is the way that most people around the world do engage in content these days. It will be curious to see whether streamers, the likes of Netflix and Disney+, whether they come into Prussia and to pressure to remove their services as well from Russia and take those away. Vincent, thank you very much indeed. That was Vincent Mac of any. And.

"The original ending of season two and the conclusion of our summer of superhero schmuck. It was meant to then lead into our halloween episode. Full build up to a great festive special. Obviously that didn't happen so what happened. There were several reasons why this episode ticket didn't make the cut and how this kind of lead into a very short hiatus for myself and ed. Firstly i just wasn't happy with the production this thing back to previous episode during the pandemic era when most of them have done on dischord. I was starting to hate phone. Call tinny sound that was coming from my side of the recording with these technical problems it sound unprofessional and sure while we have gotten used to that type of production. Because of covid you could hear it everywhere. Peru television interviews and other podcasts. Just was becoming more difficult to me to handle it to mix it to edited and to create something. Good as you will hear on this episode there are moments my vocals are magically transforming into an older to plug in luckily now as you probably joining the monica episode. The start of season free. We have now found a new way for to record the podcast and provide a clearer back to sound no more robots here no more spending hours and hours on end mixing making sure it sounds right. It's so much of an easy process. So this means you might actually getting a lot. More episodes on the way second reason was well. I was actually burnt out those the new tier restrictions here in the uk and changes to my place of work. My workload was starting to pile up in unique ways and needed my focus. I was no feeling that creative energy that this show needs to survive watching all these terrible movies on a biweekly basis. I began looking into other avenues Such as streaming enigmatic play twitch channel making original video content providing support on social media and other side jobs alongside my teaching to get that satisfaction. I need it. I went to new year and a new me which maybe i called remember. Christmas was a blur of losing cheese. But i'm wanting to put my dedication into the trash tapes and more terrible movies to explore and hopefully with a great handful of guest company at an eye on this mountain heap of bad vhs.

"Rights leading article? Against What Things. No but ideas. He writes against Catholicism. WHAT IS CATHOLICISM Can you touch it? Point at it. No. It is an idea before his mind. He clothes it with certain attributes and fourth goes all over the country that a certain idea or vision called Catholocism has certain other ideas bad ones connected with it. You see it is all a matter of ideas and abstractions and conceptions. Well. This leading article goes on to speak of certain individual Catholic priests. Still does it see them? Pointed them. No. It does but give their names. It is a matter not of persons but of names. And those names sure enough go over the whole country and empire as the names of roads or of liars or tyrants as the case may be. While they themselves the owners of them in their own persons are not at all the worse for it but eat sleep pray and do their work as freely and as easily as before. London cannot touch them for words hurt no-one. Words can hurt US till. Till. Win. Till they are taken up believed in the very place where we individually dwell. this is a very different kind of public opinion. It is local opinion I spoke of it just now and it concerns us very nearly. I say it is quite another thing when the statements which a Metropolitan Paper makes about me and the empire believes are actually taken up in the place where I live. It is a very different thing and a very serious matter. But. Observe. The great principle we have arrived at it is this. That popular opinion only acts through local opinion. The opinion of London can only act on an individual through the opinion of his own place. Metropolitan Opinion can only act on me through Birmingham opinion. London abuses Catholics. Catholic is a word. Where is the thing? In. Liverpool. In Manchester in Birmingham in Leeds in. Sheffield in Nottingham. Did all the London papers prove that all Catholics were traders. Where must this opinion be carried out? Not In the air. Not, in leading articles, not in editors room. But in. Liverpool. In Manchester, in Birmingham, in Leeds in Sheffield in Nottingham. So in order to carry out your London manifesto, you must get the people of Birmingham Manchester and the rest to write their names after it. Else, nothing comes of it's being a metropolitan opinion or an imperial opinion or it's being any other great idea whatever. You must get Birmingham to believe it of Birmingham Catholics and Manchester to believe of Manchester Catholics. So you see these great London leading articles have only done half their work or rather have not begun it by proving to the world that all Catholics are traders till they come out of their abstractions in generalities and for the world are able to substitute Birmingham Manchester and Liverpool, and for all Catholics to Substitute Catholics of Birmingham Manchester and Liverpool and to get each place in particular to accept what the general metropolis says and the empire believes in the general. And now comes another important consideration. And his not at all easy to get a particular place at the word of London to accept about its own neighborhood in particular what London says of all places in the general. Did London. Profess to tell us about the price of iron generally if it gained its information from Birmingham and other iron markets in particular, well and good. But if it came forward with great general views of its own I suspect that Birmingham would think it had a prior voice in the question and wouldn't give up its views at the bidding of any Metropolitan Journal. And the cases, the same as regards Catholocism. London may declaim Catholics in general but Birmingham will put in a claim to judge of them in particular. And when Birmingham becomes the judge London falls into the Mir Office of accuser and the accused may be heard in his defense. Thus a Catholic of Birmingham can act on Birmingham though he cannot act on. London. And this is the important practical point to which I have been coming all along. I wish you to turn your eyes upon that local opinion, which is so much more healthy, English, and Christian then popular or Poyton opinion. For. It is an opinion not of ideas but of things. Not of words but a fax. Not of names but of persons. It is perspicuous real ensure. It is little to me as far as my personal well-being is concerned what is thought of Catholicism through the Empire or does thought of me by the metropolis if I know what is thought of me in Birmingham? London cannot act on me except through. Birmingham. And Birmingham indeed can act on me but I can act on Birmingham. Birmingham can look on me and I can look on Birmingham. This is a place of persons and place of facts. There is far more fairness in a place like this then metropolis or at least fairness is uppermost. Newspapers are from the nature of the case and almost in spite of themselves conducted here on system more open and fairer than the metropolitan system. A member of parliament in London might say that I had two heads and refused to retract it though I solemnly denied it. Had would not be believed in Birmingham. All the world might believe it. It might be the theme of Country Meetings. The prime minister might introduce it into the Queen's speech. It might be the subject of most eloquent debates and most exciting divisions. It might be formally communicated to all the European courts. The stocks might fall a stream of visitors set in from Russia Egypt in the United States at the news. It would not be believed in Birmingham. Local opinion would carry it hollow against popular opinion. You see then brothers of the oratory where your success lies and how you are to secure it. Never mind the London press never mind Exeter Hall Never Mind Parameter leading orators or solemn meetings. Let them alone. They do not affect local opinion. They are ablaze amid the stubble they glare and they expire. Do not dream of converting the public opinion of London you cannot and you need not. Look at home. There lies your work. What you have to do, and what you can do are one and the same. Prove to the people of Birmingham, as you can prove to them that you're priests and yourselves are not without conscience or honor or morality. Prove it to them, and it matters not though every man woman and child within the London bills of mortality were of a different opinion..

"Novel it can read as a guide into the early 18th century before theirs in America. There's a colony and the colony is divided into large cities. New YORK Boston. Philadelphia is a small city at this point in the hands of the Quakers. Our hero, young Benjamin Franklin, under false pretenses from an older man has gone to London with out a letter letter of credit to make his way. He is a printer's apprentice, and he gets better and better opportunities to work with large printers. He's learning his trade. It's 17 24 17 25 but he's going to meet Ah, personalities who are striking in his imagination. Nick Bunker makes the point that this is this is Benjamin Franklin's college years. This is when he sees things freshly, for the first time. You can all remember your first trip by yourself to college or to Europe. Everything still burned into your mind. It prints on the neurons. We never forget it. This is for young Benjamin Franklin. So we're now at Lincoln's Inn Fields. His land lady tells him stories late at night. She's at Roman Catholic, which is daring on Benjamin Franklin's part. He works at a large industrial printer, and at first he works on the press downstairs. Is that right? That's right. Yes, and then they move him upstairs. The's are physically demanding tasks is he regarded his good at Jersey. Is he still learning how to the London printers treat him Oh, he was very good of printing at a work such as this. He could learn a perfect the kind of techniques that had already begun to acquire in Boston and then Philadelphia, for example, cringing in foreign languages, using Greek and Latin and Greek and Arabic and so So hillbilly was regarded by them was well, of course. One problem They had, of course, was that he didn't drink alcohol. And there was I'm afraid to say ah, heavy beer drinking culture in these in these workshops. And he was right to do so. He was also reluctant sometimes to pay the kind of Jews which would you to the union. I had a little labor union called the chapel. He wasn't happy with that, either because he felt he'd already paid. And so there was a bit of tension between Franklin and his colleagues, and they used to sabotage his work and so on and play tricks on him. But gradually, they came to see that Franklin was exceptionally good at his job, and he was exceptionally reliable as a colleague. And so over time he began to fit in, and they begin to trust him a counter calling of the water American, of course, because you drank so much water, but that was kind of ah, tinged with respect that kind of a note about the water drinking. Franklin is compulsive about his dining habits has been his whole life. He comes up with a regiment for himself, where he's not eating meat for a long period of time, and then he's eating bread and water. Love. That's an imagination of a young man. What did he think he was achieving by either starving himself or overwhelming himself with water? Well, actually, part, of course, is to save money. He wanted to buy books. And so he saved money by economizing on his food and my not drinking alcohol. I think also, he's always kind of a test of his willpower. And also there was an eccentric element to Franken himself. I mean, he liked eccentrics. They enjoyed their company, and he could be eccentric himself on. I think he also was somebody who liked to kind of stand out. Hey, Liketo have a distinctive clear identity to stand out from the throng. And this was one way of doing so he's meeting or seeing the foundations of organisations that will become Of Great Institute of Scholarship and Learning. I want to cite some of these names, sir Hans Sloane, Who was he to Franklin? Franklin met Sloane in London in in 17 26. What he did was he went to Sloan to offer him some curiosities that he Franklin had bought from them. Because Sloane was a collector of natural science alone was the founder of what is now the British Museum. Hey, was a botanist. He had a botanical garden. He was a scientific author. He had traveled himself to Jamaica and written an excellent journal about it. And so frankly thought that Sloan might want to acquire these colonial curiosities. The principal, one of which was believe it or not, a little bag made out of asbestos, which had somehow or other been found naturally in America, and, frankly went to Sloan on offered this foot for sale. Also a surgeon named John Lions, who has a theory of malignant actually, yes, John Lyons was another Is these eccentrics that frankly love to come across? Hey, met lines through a book seller not far from his lodgings in Little Britain. But But Lines was also curious character. He was a kind of a spy on behalf of the government, whose job was to go around. Looking for Jack a bites and traitor. This is wall pulls government. That's right. Well, George, the first is still on the throne. That's right onto Robert Walpole is the prime minister on Lions worked for the government as a kind of secret agents. Hey, was also something of a philosopher, and he did indeed developed this theory that disease was spread by what he called malignant atoms in the air and lines. A solution to this for curing for getting rid of small pox and plague and so on. Wass to explosives used explosives. He believed that if you set off gunpowder trails of gunpowder in the streets, the explosions would burn away the malignant atoms and the disease would would be brought to an end. The Failures around Ben Franklin also teach him who is James Ralph or James Ralph, with the closest friend of his youth on Ralph was another eccentric, another extraordinary young man. Very good for you, and it's a little bit older than Franklin, probably English, but it turned up in Philadelphia, but he was a poet. He was actually a talented poet. And for a while, Ralph made quite an interesting career in London in the late 17 20 as a political writer, right He was going back and forth between the wigs and the time he was really wig. What happened was, though, that he picked a fight with the greatest authors of the period. I mean, the greatest English authors of this period were Alexander Pope, the poet. Jonathan Swift, who wrote Gulliver's Travels, and John Gay, who wrote the Beggar's Opera, the Great musical and these rule. Tory writers on DH James Ralph picked a fight with them by writing some extremely rude, satirical comments about them in in a long poem on the marked Pope, he most disability Didi more pro for his disability, he said the Swift was a humorless on he made fun of Gulliver's travels. And he also made fun of the Beggar's opera, which was immensely popular because he thought that was the popular thing to do with the beggar's opera was gonna Hamilton of its day as a musical. But in order to please the wigs and to make a name for himself, James Ralph took on these great man. And of course, the result was devastating because, of course, they fought back on his Korea collapsed under a kind of Tidal wave of invective from the tourist right, and Ben Franklin watched that happen. It's a sad story, and you make a note. At one point, this might have been Franklin's. I think that's right. I think one of the reasons why Franklin wrote about people like James Ralph was because I think he knew that This might have been what had happened to him if he had not been more careful now. The success of Franklin is that he's going to create the printing center in Philadelphia, which is both Popular and, um, forward looking, progressive, inventive and a man named Charles Akers. Acker's acres of the Bakers. Eyes, someone he meets in London who will become the the publisher of London magazine, Right? Akers was one of Frank. His colleagues in London on Acres turned out to be a very enterprising, very successful, principally London very competent, produced magazines. Books. Cookery books, for example, did very well indeed, aunt he was someone Franklin corresponded with, frankly needed to have an agent in London through to whom he could send his own newspaper, The Pennsylvania Gazette. And from whom he could get the London Press and Acres remained fulfill that role for Franklin. And then what happened was that Franklin, essentially in America, recreated the kind of success that Charles because it enjoyed its London magazine is his truck copies.

I know any I didn't either until I was going through eople control. And I go to confiscated from my luggage. And actually that was one of the Spurs of writing this book because of course, apple control the security. They are really up on liquids on they and we all live through this. You know, because they didn't seem to be bothered about liquids about fifteen years ago and suddenly, whoa. Liquid enemy number one. You'll get frisked for them and they compass guy confiscated. In fact, your your book is based on a sort of a flight, you take a transatlantic flight, and you'd talk about all the liquids you encounter on the flight yet because I mean, you know, once you get frisked at the apple for your liquids, you then they take them off you then they try and sell them back to you. You go into this cone acopia of liquids booze. They give you coffee. They you know, there's a toilet there. You can get rid of your liquids like this perfume. That's creams of also now creams liquid Zeno they are actually liquid and then you get on the plane, and then you get the preflight safety briefing. And and then the whole safety briefing fails to mention the one liquid that you absolutely rely on to get anywhere on a plane. It's on the AUSSIE. It's in the wings. It's aviation fuel. And you know, if you saw a plane the way you see a disposable light, you know, these transparent disposable lies you can buy and you can see the liquid fuel in them. That's what a plane would look like it was transparent. There's a lot of liquid in the bottom of the plane, and you spend an interesting amount of time. And I was very fascinating to learn about the kerosene the jet fuel how that was invented and sort of let go. Oh, yeah. I mean that was invented a thousand years ago, by occasion, chemist alchemist who who stumbled across it. And and he was he was sort of investigating and discovering lots of new chemical prices. And he looked this Todd that was bubbling up outside Baghdad, and he did all sorts of chemical prices on it to still they found found this very clear liquid. You could get from it which turned out to be kerosene put it into an oil lamp and found that it had it was smokeless fuel. And at the time. Of course, that was very significant for him because smokeless fuels were associated with a myth of the djinn or genie and the genie in the lamp is is a recurrent myth in in Middle East about the magic of of something that combined with a smokeless fuel. So he was very very excited about the scarring this thing, but at the time, you know, they didn't have the industrial processes to actually take advantage of it. So it's sort of lost in time for thousand years. And now we use it for, you know, jet fuel kinds of stuff, it's very very important. And and in in your book, the only about about admitted to the break, I want to get into the ideas of why you can have a liquid that will explode gasoline or a why the liquid you know, was just like alcohol, why is home as sticky.
