"Times have changed? This election was called in October. The approval ratings for both carbon and Johnson had plummeted in one poll. Just thirty nine percent of British voters said they approved of Boris Johnson. Now the country's Prime Minister and only twenty percent said they call Corbin was doing a good job as the leader of the opposition Labor Party. So watchman wrong well. Politics is complicated in Britain of course but a big part of the answer for Jeremy Corbyn at least lies with Brexit. Tim Bela's politics professor at Queen Mary University of London whose desire to sit on offense on that particular question and not. If you like plump very strongly either for remain offer leave has increased rest- the public's perception that this is a man who can't make up his mind and so is indecisive. cauldrons indecisiveness has infuriated many Labor supporters. A majority food want to Britain to stay in the European Union but Brexit isn't his only problem allegations of antisemitism have dogged Corbin's leadership even some of his fellow Labour Party members have accused him of not tackling. The problem within the party's own ranks. I cannot remain in the policy the I have today come sickening. Conclusion is institutionally anti Semitic Luciana. Berger is a former labor and birger. WHO's Jewish was one of seven in parliamentary members who quit the Labor Party earlier this year for her anti Semitism was a driving factor? The leadership has willfully and repeatedly failed else to address hatred against Jewish people within its ranks in the past week. Seventy sworn statements from Labor officials detailing antisemitism within the party were leaked to the news media and Corbin once again found himself apologizing. Obviously I'm very sorry for everything that's happened but I wanna make this clear clear. I am dealing with it. I have dealt with it. We just do not accept it in any form whatsoever. carbons not the only one apologizing for offending members. The minority community already said sort of any offense that I've caused I say again prime minister. Boris Johnson was forced to apologize on television this past week for comments he. He made about Muslim women in a newspaper article last year. Johnson wrote that women who wear the Burqa look like letterboxes and bank robbers. I think what people want to I know is what are we gonNA do now. What is going to be prime minister? Why would you say something like that? Well I think it's always worth looking at the whole who who says I'm really intending to say a because actually it's quite quite the opposite and I'm very proud of my record on combating extremism. Indeed in my Muslim ancestry and indeed as Johnson likes to mention and interviews. His great grandfather was from Turkey. But it's not just Muslim. Women who've expressed anger towards Johnson according to opinion polls. This prime minister is simply less popular with women in general. Some of this could have something to do with stories around his personal life that came up in another recent interview. How many children do you have? I- Cuban very much down off not standing at this election. And and I'm not that will get Ed Cohen on my you fully unholy involved in all their lines I- politics professor Tim. Bale says Johnson's past hurts the public's trust in him as a national national leader. We know that he has. Let's say a fairly colorful past but I think this is also a man. Because was he was a journalist has said all sorts of things and done all sorts of things that he's had to go back on in later life and therefore that gives the impression of someone who says one thing and does another another or promises something and then goes back on it today. The leader of the DUP the Northern Irish party that supported the Conservatives in government said she felt betrayed by Boris Johnson and over his brexit deal. But just how much do personalities Masher in British general elections because voters which using party not an individual when they go to vote vote on Thursday. Here's Professor Tim Bale again in the UK. We don't even a presidential system. We live in a parliamentary system. So therefore people on voting for the leader directly it clear as they are in for example the United States of America however we do know that over the years leaders have become more important. People's vote choices so Boris Johnson Johnson is seen as a bit of a lovable rogue by the British and Jeremy Corbyn think is seen as rother kind of techy Slightly kind of obsessive. A not the kind of person that you want to go have a drink with and for many voters. That's how they're seeing their two big choices. Will it be roguish Johnson or techy Corbin for the world. I'm more to Bari in London. White Island is a tourist destination. Thirty miles off the east coast of New Zealand and today at two PM. Local time interrupted interrupted today was really noticeable because just wonderful blue sky and suddenly a huge plume of steam. Right in the middle of that by. That's both skipper Phil van der Shotton as the ash and steam spewed from the volcano. Tourists on another boat were.

"APPLICA- correspondent Peter Walker their polly. We'll start with you although I should say you're not very much hit. Not here with party hats on are you. You've moved beyond all of that sort of thing. We we got demonstrate works on a kind of cross party basis but I did what for decades so I know the party quite well so this campaign is very focused or has been very focused on joy. Swinson hasn't isn't it. Kicked off that way. Nick collected pretty well out of that in two thousand ten was the right thing to think. She's she's got Joe Swinson Lib Dem's written on the side of a Butler for bus- big picture. Your face I think almost all of the population can share A moment with Jo Swinson when she said that she looks abortion so Jeremy Corbyn and thinks she could do a better job. I think inc a almost everyone will will agree that they could do a better job too. And I guess it's very tempting when you've got to basically grey-haired Whitehead ahead older man to be. Actually I'm different. She's a younger woman. They're trying to build a coalition of people who look at the two big parties. And say no thank you and that is a relatively disparate group. I thought in that report. The most extraordinary thing was the idea that that are moving. Towards urging Tactical Voting Liberal Democrat campaign strategy is to urge tactical voting from day. One has been for thirty years. And that's not new fundamentally it will we'll be a campaign that is geographically concentrated in a number of seats. Go back to two thousand and one liberal. Democrats did get forty five seats with only fourteen percent of the vote if the Liberal Democrats records forty. Fives get forty five seats then. Bursts would have to absolutely obliterate the Labor Party to get a majority but she did start off by saying could be prime minister. Didn't she the first leaflet. That cain for outdoor. Aw said pretty much meet your next. Prime Minister Jo Swinson which doesn't sound like urging me to technically vote. It's it sounds My next I rotate it like speech for all the two thousand and ten spring conference and he came out onto the stage and said I want to be prime minister. That was the first sentence of the speech and I worry that there was a little bit of misogyny. They're a forty year. Old Man is totally allowed to be ambitious and forty. Old Woman is like Of No you're too young James. You think it's the right thing to do to start off with that message. I can be prime minister so I think the what is the heart of the Liberal Democrat campaign. They're the party of remain instead of putting remain main at the center. They put a person at the center. I don't really understand why why you would do that. So if you think of that leaflet came to your door why the strong message at the top hopeless leaflet is an if you want to remain. Vote Democrat. I I just don't understand. I do think that they had some internal evidence that made them believe that they were going to do really well at this election particularly in terms of seats are expecting a pretty efficient tactical voting distribution. That made it look like the vote. Share will be will convert teach really well hasn't panned out like that. I don't think it's going to pan out like that. In two thousand and five eight years into an incumbent government would catch twenty two percent of the vote. I'm not sure they're going to do do that. Well now despite the unpopularity of the leaders of the two main parties we're having this election because the Democrats decided to support it if that means things that we end up with a parliamentary majority living withdrawal agreement bell and Bradley on January that wouldn't have been particularly successful outing and I think there will be in the context of incredibly high levels of volatility people moving between parties more than ever before our third party is not on track to make the most post about opportunity. And I think trying to understand. Why will that means for? The ability of our political system to respond to voter needs is going to be quite important. Part the mortem if it continues on the path off. I don't think the problem with Jo Swinson was that she was a woman but I do think her frayed the way she said these things about your parents did sound conceited at an inexperienced i. I'm afraid And that was why it didn't work and also if you're this business I went down to sometimes the other day And they're they've got a real problem inside Eh. Because most of the voters there are either liberal or sort of people who think of themselves agenda of the left and they'd like to Andrew George who is standing in this election who was the Liberal Democrat. MP for years and years and they know he's the best local choice but they won't Brexit so do they vote for this Torah or or or do they go back to Andrew Georgia's the best local candidate just Winston and the people who thought that revoke was a good policy for the downs of put really made life harder for good Lib. Dem Candidate I andrew. George pershing bleeds two kinds of seats that they're targeting is James. That message has to do with seats like the ones that Luciana Berger in chocolate many were standing in London so I guess they didn't want to have any remain space beyond them. They wanted to be the most remaining party on the on the market. But somehow or other that hasn't translated into the entire TIREC strategy so they're not sufficiently galvanizing. The pro remained vote behind them. Luciana probably is chuck. Probably probably probably some seats. But as you suggest whether it's happening but even in even in those southwest seats where say forty percent of the seat voted remain If you've got your vote split between the other parties you can still win if you can gap that group together but somehow or other that is just not connecting and there's no percents of groundswell momentum all direction behind a Liberal Democrat I it will be will be tactical protest voting plus element of local candidates being strong strong nor a big mandate for for strong position nationally polly how devoid. You must have come across this issue being tangled up in kind of hypotheticals about who you wouldn't or would support in a hung parliament accent. Something Labor has to confront as well about the relationship with the SMP and so on but you know how always use it to dodge those questions to answer them sensibly. That's precisely thinking that gets you into saying. Oh I want to be prime. Minister is so that you can avoid those question. I mean Charles Kennedy Used to be asked if the Liberal Democrats didn't exist which joined the Labor Party or the Conservative Party whose I'd found the Liberal Democrats of. Yeah yeah it's a liberal hats. Always have to dodge that question because it's awkward and uncomfortable and that's I think why. They ended up for granting this prime minister thing. I think James completely right. But if you're if you'RE GONNA make remain your thing you actually probably should have for granted remain in everything you do including perhaps making king weird sort of ostentatious sacrifices about standing down for whatever the ten twenty most remain Labor seat as an act of self harm as it were to show how virtuous and unromantic you are. What's been extraordinary about this whole campaign? Is that neither liberal. Democrats nor frankly anybody is really attacking Boris Johnson Stale and his his central mission is to say it's going to be over then we have to talk about anymore and there's a vast number of people who frankly don't care about brexit. They just want us to move on and it's not quite there. It's not just persuading people that there's going to be trade negotiations so we're going to have to carry on talking about Brexit it's who suspending people that it's not just some like okay slightly torrid thing we have to get past. It's also an act of huge economic southcom to go through with Boris Johnson's withdrawal agreement because that puts us on track to huge damage to motive industries for example. And nobody is talking about that. Bristol's has been given a free pass to be able to say look it's oven ready right but honestly if you when was the last last time you had a genuinely good meal. That was ready. That's what they should be attacking. It does that feel right. And you're you're not nothing that's right you should say the male will be an edible. Yes I agree. That would be very very good way frozen in the mental. Exactly yes yes. I should be giving out really bad oven. Ready meals to the lobby. Just as funny is is that right James. We do seem to have almost moved on from talking about the details of Brexit which we spent months talks it feels like a post brexit election brexit election versus and get brexit. A UH labor is sort of comfortable with that. And we're now talking about all these other issues that can be done when you get past brexit. So I think the if you wanted to challenge that narrative you need to about Boris Johnson's endless brexit for the is in fact. True that there'll be all these negotiations that were gone forever experiencing negotiation so that they've gone on forever including bars. It's is not complete so when we do focus groups with undecided voters we. We did with overman voters last week in Brussels seat. Almost all of them wanted to get brexit done and because it was more important to them. There's a teacher thirty kids in the class. One PRITT stick cheap. That's what matters to her when it comes to voting and Brexit one of them said if you drive about your road and hit a pothole. That's real brexit's just a word to us. No one has effectively made this tangible and nobody has made the case that this is a barrier to achieving things it it was pretty comfortable allowing to form that getting it done will allow us to deal with all these other things and I don't really understand why no party including the Democrats is trying to have that for is effectively creating five maybe trying well. They've they've tried the basic funding their election giveaways with this idea of remain different. But it's hard to explain to. They need to find a way to to remind people that she research party. The Boris's Brexit deal will make it much harder because it will affect economic growth and tax revenue to make those promises to Pritt stick purchase around the country. And how do that if you were if you were free advice. If you're in your old job how would you. How did they breakthrough in this last couple of weeks? I'm not sure I can get better than in My oven ready stance title leaflets to every house. Instead of fake newspapers Some takeaways really nice especially now in the age of delivery so maybe that does go down that route James. What should they be doing? I think they just need to show that it's not over the Conservative Party's key messages. Get brexit done. Let's get this thing I've been done within. That appeals to leave as but also remains who just tired of it. They're not ideological remainder booed. I would probably park the prime ministerial vote for Joe Stuff and find everywhere. I can't make every day about. It's not over with them. It is possible that the scrutiny falls more more in the Conservative Party is the view. Is that day okay. going to form a majority government and that creates more scrutiny of them which might crap pendulum effect. The Conservative Party are really happy where they are neither. The other main party should be a tool happy with where they are and unless they operate fundamentally differently over the next two weeks. It's really hard to see how it fundamentally changes. Well let's all we have time for this this week. My thanks to all our guests polly McKenzie James Morris. Andrew Jackson Kate proctor and Peter Walker the producers Daniel Stevens.

"Of populists if you will. There's really nowhere to go because the choice is between a conservative party. That's has become a brexit party and the labour party that is led by marxist and so there's the question is kind of how big will the shift to the center. How well will the lib dem's in particular do and the hope i think is that you end up with them. Either constraining kuban led government such that it can't do too much damage or if you have what's called a hung parliament and the tories of the biggest single party limiting what anything that can happen in terms of no deal so the the choice itself. It's a horrific joy search for the country because it's it is different though the choice between a prime minister corbyn why he become prime minister if he was unconstrained he would do unbelievable unbelievable damage to the UK. A hard brexit crashed out which seems to be what the tory party under boris johnson once would also do enormous damage so it's it's the rock and hard heartbreaking for many many people particularly remain towards but centrists that all stripes there is not a natural home in either of the two main parties.

Why is it not not possible for the left to be a kind of open. Ca cosmopolitan liberal free pro-trade party is is the is the dynamics on the left such that you have to move left.

MP's refers the talibanisation of the tory party. I wouldn't use that phrase myself doc given afghanistan's tragedy but you can you know what he means in the labor ponti. It's <hes> far left. There's no no doubt about it this taken over the commanding heights of the body the deeper questions though are about the extreme inequalities that exist in all scientism whether they can be addressed from the centre-left rather than from the extreme dream left and that's where people are my version of got work to do to come up with compelling ounces because from my point of view being anti-trade is you puts. It doesn't do anything for people in my former constituency. We've got to make sure that we have an inclusive form of growth. That actually does deliver for them. A many of my friends all of many of them have stuck with the labor party but they think is the only only vehicle to in the end can deliver however. They're acutely conscious. That boris johnson secret weapon at the moment is jeremy corbyn and that's the problem.

Explainer 181: Brexit: will it ever end?

"The british people have voted to leave the european union and the will must be respected. It was not a decision that was taken lightly. Blink not least because so many things were said by so many different organizations about the significance of this decision. If anyone is still keeping ping score it is now one thousand one hundred and sixty eight days since a narrow majority of what was then the british electorate primarily the non london in english electorate voted to take the united kingdom out of the european union as we go to where it is fifty six days until the u._k. Is due to actually leave the e._u. Having missed a couple of deadlines already there is something undeniably opposite in the current prime minister boris johnson being a former journalist. It is not too late to save pretzel boris. Johnson's government had a working majority she just about thanks to the expensive acquiescence of the democratic unionist party of northern ireland on tuesday that waifish advantage vanished when philip levy conservative member bracknell defected to the liberal democrats. I wish i wish i wish i followed later you too in the week by former labor and independent group m._p. Luciana berger. It's not impossible that by the time you listen to this jo swinson might be running the country and kyle the prime minister what advice she has for women across the country on how to deal with those men who think they could we do a better job are not prepared to do the actual work none of which it turned out made much difference to the week's crucial votes in the house of commons as we learned a number of conservative m._p.'s also oppose not deal brexit enough to vote against their own prime minister and in so doing prompt their prime minister to expel them from the conservative benches. It says everything you need to know about the polarizing effects of brexit that these rebels now outcasts were comprised of the mildest characters on the tory side of the house including former chancellors philip hammond and ken clock and cynical assumes the grandson of winston churchill. I want to make clear that i've always believed the referendum. Results must be honored and indeed. I voted for the withdrawal agreement on every occasion is is being presented to the highest which is more than can be said for my right on the front of the prime minister the leader of the highest and all the members of the cabinet who ciro disloyalty has been such an inspiration to so many any of this to speak. These punishments were followed by the resignation of m._p. Joe johnson the brother of boris johnson. If we are take boris johnson at his word and there is mountainous evidence that this is a hazardous course he still wants a withdrawal deal but wishes to keep the no deal option shen in play as a negotiating ploy this makes on the face of it since it is rarely wise to limit your options in such circumstances although the no deal brexit strategy is not so much a threat to walk out of the rug shop as a threat to shoot yourself in both feet and then sort of bleed all over the stuff while screaming but parliament seems reasonably enough to believe that i know deal brexit which is the present legal default bolt is not a risk worth running. The obvious resolution to the impasse would be a general election but the u._k. Appears now to find itself in the curious position of having a prime minister who wants a general election but says he doesn't squaring off against positionally who doesn't want to general election and says does as we wanted an action photographing is the appeal of an early election suggested date is october. Fifteenth is clear enough to johnson the plan would be to win a mandate condemn the labor party to to further disarray use a majority to pass some sort of withdrawal agreement and claim a great triumph and even if it doesn't work out quite like vast he'd still it'll be prime minister until at least two thousand twenty four. It's just as easy to see why johnson wouldn't want an election just after a new deal brexit especially if it's as bad the government's own projections predict people deprived of food and medicines unlikely to behave gratefully at the ballot box but due to the arcana no no of the u._k.'s fixed term parliament act it is not possible for johnson to simply cold and election. He requires an amount of cooperation from the opposition who do not seem inclined to give it at least not yet on wednesday night. Labor voted against johnson's motion for a general election lead jeremy corbyn corbin said that the bill blocking a no deal brexit would need to become law. I the offer the election. Today is a bit like the offer of an apple to snow white in the wicked queen because what he's offering is an apple or even election but the poison of ano- dale said an election in october still seems is likely the not the large bets on the result would be ill advised the u. K. you may have noticed is in a strange mood on the basis that the usual usual foam with brexit has been whatever is the most ridiculous theoretical outcome is probably what will actually happen. Another hung parliament causing another election within in six months seems a decent punt and or an amount of comic justice may be at hand the key underpinning of boris johnson's korea in public. Life is his hotly debatable conviction of his own destiny as some churchillian colossus it would be something if the shambles he did so much orchestrate ashes him into the footnotes and pub quizzes as britain's briefest prime minister while we're keeping score of things he's still seventy six days short <music>. I'm andrew miller <music>.

"It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Rachel Martin much of the recent political turmoil in the United Kingdom has focused on the struggle to come up with a viable plan for leaving the e u that's been a major stumbling block for Prime Minister, Theresa may and her conservative party. Now, the opposition labor party is facing its own critical moment, seven labour members of parliament broke off from their party on Monday. Robert trims Lee is the chief UK political commentator for the financial times. And he joins us. Now. Mr. shrimp, say thanks for being here. Come owning. Who are these members of parliament? And why why are they leaving labor? Okay. Well, the first thing says, the none of them will be names that mean anything to anybody outside of the United Kingdom, and many of them are not name mean anything to people within the United Kingdom, but they are relatively prominent longstanding members of the labor party labour impede people on the right of the labour policy who feel for a number of different reasons. But no longer what for. Then partly it is about breaking you divide the party to not extremely divides, the conservative party, partly it is about some of the polling antisemitism, and bullying that's been tolerated within Jeremy Corbyn labour party, but primarily I think it's because they take an extremely left would turn which they no longer feel comfortable with any longer feel complete economic policies. They no longer feel comfortable with security and foreign policies amending longer feel comfortable with the way, it's run. We've got a clip here of Luciana Berger, a member of parliament at a press conference announcing the split listless near the leadership has willfully and repeatedly failed to address hatred against Jewish people within its ranks. And it's for these reasons and many more the I have made this decision today. Where is this coming from is this is this a byproduct of the Brexit debate? No, nothing with Brexit. I think it's fundamentally springs from the very very deep-rooted anti-americanism which of. The leadership over the late body, Jeremy Corbyn and the people around him. It says you see America as the great evil in the world. And as they have always sided with the causes which identifiable as anti-americanism spiking America. One of these has made them very very hostile to the state of Israel, and very very pro Palestinian now, that's perfectly legitimate mainstream view, of course, but it has seeped, and they have been very very careless in the kind of friendships launches they keep that anybody who is anti Israel is accepted as a friend by these people some of those people, deeply anti semitic, and the culture and language has blade into too much of the mainstream. Labour policy Luciana Berger who you quoted that she had to have a police escort walking around our own party conference last year. Because of the threat to not all of these sorts from late, but somebody different right-wing threat, but a culture of anti semitism has been tolerated and fostered in a wing of lay party, which is in control of that party. So what difference does it make these seven people we should know at seven out of more than two hundred labor members of problems. So it's not a huge number. So what difference does it make? Well, the question is if it stays at seven, then it wouldn't make much difference. A tool the issues, whether these are then golden advanced populists. There's many many other labor and peace most of their views. Most of it is comforting late light-blocking would be just as horrified as I as they are about Jeremy Corbyn prime minister, they're just not ready to jump. The question is all the end advance party. Or are they the only policy as Theresa May commenting on this at all? I think I haven't seen a direct comment from us. She'll certainly be enjoying it. But it's a problem for her to you. Because there are conservatives who are just as unhappy what's happening in their party. And some of them will be a target for this new breakaway.

And joining me in the studio is Jacob parakeets his deputy head of the US in America's pergram some house. Jacob we would normally kickoff with some other awful thing that you will present has done, but we're going to start off with British politics. Well, you know, you got to keep it very the story and leading most of the British papers this morning about the seven members of the labor party who announced that they would be leaving to form a group not a new party, but an independent group in parliament, including Chuck Muna who amongst other things as my MP Luciana Berger and coffee. Angela Smith, Chris, Leslie, Mike, gapes and Gavin shuker and the the line coming out of their camp and presumably other sources in the labor party. This morning is what the guardian runs with as its headline Corbin is warned change or more rebels. Will quit obviously coming less than two months before the UK leaves the union. This is a a bit of a problem for labor party in British politics better. One of the reasons that they broke away was the anti semitism row that's going on within labor. Of course. Luciana bugah has been horribly abused. But there was a spectacular own goal by one of these members who made a racist remark on television. That's right. It sort of cost Paul over the whole thing. I mean, there was a lot of there was a lot of. I mean, the the sort of left of the labour party is very active on Twitter. So dear in the announcement. There was a lot of general sort of bashing of them from that side of things, but it was it was sort of compounded. When Angela Smith said something about made a racist comment on the BBC and then had to immediately apologized for it. So that that I think sort of stole some of their own. Thunder, and you know, com- complicated their messaging, but this is going to shake up the Brexit row shortly to some degree. Yeah. I mean the other side from anti semitism the other issue. I mean, Mona is one of the the leading voices calling for people's vote a second referendum, and the fact that he finds it necessary now to leave labor suggests that he and others have given up on the idea of convincing Corbin to call for a second referendum, and it also I think increases the odds of there isn't a sort of meaningful parliamentary majority for anything, which of course, in turn increases the chance of no deal..

"Morning edition from NPR news. I'm David Greene. I'm Rachel Martin much of the recent political turmoil in the United Kingdom has focused on the struggle to come up with a viable plan for leaving the EU. That's been a major stumbling block for Prime Minister, Theresa may and her conservative party. Now, the opposition labor party is facing its own critical moment, seven labour members of parliament broke off from their party on Monday. Robert trims Lee is the chief UK political commentator for the financial times. And he joins us now, Mr. shrimp, thanks for being here. Good morning who are these members of parliament? And why why are they leaving labor? Okay. Well, the first thing says, none of them will be names mean indistinct to anybody outside of the United Kingdom, and many of them are not names that mean anything to people within the United Kingdom, but they are relatively permanent longstanding members of the labor party labour impede on people on the right of the labor policy who feel for number of different reasons that no longer what for then partly. It is about Brexit. Brexit divide delay potty to the extremely as it divides, the conservative party, partly it is about some of the polling antisemitism and bullying. That's been toll rated within. Jeremy Corbyn labour party. But primarily I think it's because police are taken an extremely left would turn which they no longer feel comfortable. They no longer feel complete economic policies. They no longer feel comfortable with it security and foreign policies amending longer feel comfortable with the way its run. We've got a clip here of Luciana Berger, a member of parliament at a press conference announcing the split. Let's listen to hear the leadership has willfully and repeatedly failed to address. S hatred against Jewish people within its ranks. And it is for these reasons and many more. The I have made this decision today. Where is this coming from is this is this a byproduct of the Brexit debate? No nothing to do with Brexit. I think it's fundamentally springs from the the very very rooted anti-americanism, which of the leadership over the late potty, Jeremy Corbyn and the people around him essentially, see America as the great evil in the world. And as a result of which they have always cited with the causes which identifiable as anti-americanism with the groups fighting America, one of these has made them very very hostile to the states Israel. I'm very very pro Palestinian, that's perfectly legitimate mainstream view, of course. But it has seeped tell you about, and they have been very very careless in the kind of friendships is they keep anybody who is anti Israel is accepted as a friend by these people. Some of those people are deeply anti semitic. The culture and language has bled into too much of the mainstream policy mean Luciana Berger who you quoted them she had to have a police escort walking around our own policy conference last year. Because of the threat to not all of these such light. But some of these different right-wing threats, but a culture of antisemitism has been tolerated and fostered in wing of late party, which is not in control of that policy. So what difference does it make these seven people we should know at seven out of more than two hundred labor members of parliament. So it's not a huge number. So what difference does it make? Well, the question is if it stays at seven, then it wouldn't make much difference. A tool the issues whether these are van golden advanced pocketed. There's many many other labor in peace shit, most of their views most of it discomfiting late Baltin would be just horrified. As I as they are about Germany, become prime minister. They're just not ready to jump. The question is all the in advance party. Or are they the only policy is Theresa May commenting on this at all. I haven't seen it coming from. She'll certainly be enjoying it. But it's a problem for her to because there are conservatives who are Justice unhappy what's happening in their policy and some of them will be a target for this new breakaway group as well.

"These MP's a pretty significant figures within the labour party, there's five shadow ministers as cold him minister's, Representative of important offices from the party not in government. And these key figures who will be well known in the labor party. Well, let's hear from one of these defectors. Her name is Luciana Berger. And she says it was the culture of racism within the labor party that drove her to this. I cannot remain in policy. The I have today come to the sickening. Conclusion is institutionally auntie semitic. The leadership has willfully and repeatedly failed to address hatred against Jewish people within its ranks. Now, she's saying that there's racism within the labour party what she referring to from her perspective. It's is allegations. I guess of antisemitism. Luciana Berger herself is Jewish and she has been trolled quite viciously over the years for her religion. She has called repeatedly on the labor party to denounce various claims of antisemitism. It's an allegation that has been thrown at the labor party quite repeatedly over the last number of years. Jeremy Corbyn himself, the leader of the party very much coming from the left, and I guess when he came in. He would have been seen as quite pro Palestine not to say that that's anti semitic. But there were times before he got into the leadership that he invited for example, members of Hezbollah and HAMAs into parliament and a lot of these. Things that happened back. Then there was also a mural this. He refused condemn that was seen as anti semitic. These kinds of events or incidents that he was involved in. He has not condemned them since they've tended to follow him. So it is an allegation that sits very uncomfortably with the party and the party's seen as not having done enough about it and not having condemned antisemitism enough for burger perceived anti semitism was the reason she left the party for others. It was the sense that the labor party had failed to lead on Brexit would is the charge against the labor party in terms of its response to Brexit. Sure. So when the Brexit referendum was being held at the time, the labor party campaigned against Brexit, and they campaigned for voters to vote to remain within the EU. However at the time, the feeling was that their campaign was roll their lackluster, and Jeremy corbin's comments on it were lackluster. So the suspicion has always dogged him that Jeremy Corbyn is not. Fond of Europe, and that he's quite happy for the UK to be out of Europe since the Brexit campaign since the Brexit came in the labor party has been seen as well under. Jeremy Corbyn has been seen as being pretty lackluster. When it comes to any fight back against it. Three Somme in the houses of parliament. He wasn't seeing the taking a tough enough stance against her or indeed or breaks at deal. Many members of his own party in two ding. Interestingly the seven who have stepped away from the party and resigned today have called for a second referendum. Jeremy Corbyn has always step back on that and refused to agree to a second referendum and most labor party supporters would have been anti Brexit. So it was seen as a betrayal to them his stance on brags at over the last number of months and indeed years at this point, the changes today will that have any impact on Brexit? How it's carried out whether there's a another referendum any of that stuff. Listen, no, one has an idea. What's going to happen? Into bragg's, not only these new independent MP's or indeed the labor party Theresa May. And her own party for that matter. We're at a stage that nobody knows despite the fact where what five weeks six weeks away from when Britain is due to leave Europe and due to leave the EU. They have said that they want a second referendum. There is however only seven of them, and there is a possibility they will get more people to join their ranks. And in that case, they may get more people to vote in their favor and against whatever. Theresa May's next proposal ISM whenever the next vote is what will happen now. Nobody knows the world's Orla.
