"On the court I'm looking Jonsman down my name's James McDougal because I work for a charity and the Mental Health and homelessness and disability sectors I also have a couple of small business projects on the side, a practice manager or my wife immigration also. And consulting business as well, and then outside of this or make sure doing more degree in politics. But what a lot on my plate at the moment current. True. So for years I've been frustrated watching the numbers of homelessness child, poverty abuse, and mental health rising and listening to the promises that made by multiple governments and nothing seems to change the name of department I grew up through the system and fired me in so many ways and I was hoping that it would be getting. And and watching from the outside, it doesn't beginning there seems to be getting worse. All of them are taking a very health by Synon- punitive approach to into health, which is refreshingly consistent with the populations be moving in recent years number eight, Cameron, the family that we were talking about before I'm. Also, an interesting character in talkative. Yeah I caught locked DOT COM or not. Dealt with Melissa some input into give him my initial pre-election reports. Look I was ready to. Tear. Said, touch him a little bit hash lay for has fusing climate change which some I think very junkins Percy theory and they don't have any scientific basis to them as far as I can say. However I thought I do need to look more broadly than just as views on climate change I think we need to consider that The background is coming from is a dairy farmer up the line Northland I'm he is actually on the front line of New Zealand's response to climate change in sodas important that he does consider solutions that are going to work on the ground on the farms, and it'll be useful for him to bring this to. Parliament, I'm hoping that some some of his colleagues Brooke Van Velden and Tim some cool. took him around a bit some of this Mark Cayman is someone who's Also bringing a lot of life experience to the table as As dairy farmer up north he was a just expanding his business a few years ago he was it put a seeking Fam- I mean he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder which he sees as now destroying his kidney function. so He's been up from the passing is not from the public about this and he's coming into parliament parliament Narran not great physical shape. I think it's probably useful that that parliament has representation from people who again you know I talked about some. Not wanting robots in parliament. Is a big portion of our population.

If something we spent on a big believer in freedom of choice in south responsibilities laugh you know really amazing to get to number nine and the promote those Yeah she's also. A small business owner from Christ church and one of relatively small south. Auburn representation on the X party less so. I think her support for revisiting the gun legislation is probably interesting because she's so active in the gun community and cross stitch i. of course, was a city that was. was hit by the terror attacks last year and Mississippi that still winter enormous pine over that. Act will want to have her voice at the forefront and discussion and discussing rolling back the new gun controls because I'm.

"And beaten into house for all the government in the billion dollars eight year on mental health services, and yet people are still not happy with that provision and I want to get away from this idea of. Just. Throwing more money at it and it will. So the problem because it obviously hasn't worked and so what I want to see and policy I've created is one name to health and addiction agency nationwide and it would be so to say for mental health care for every person in the country. Yes. She looks like a safe pair of hands. and. One of the questions versus how they're going to operate in opposition you know when there's Tina them with no in government they're not even the biggest party in opposition. So what you're going to do for the next three years I think Brooke Van Velden End. Davis will give us an indication on that. They can very competently I'd. Buy. Shoes that May Be important certainly may be saleable and we're very hard and saw that. With the positions have taken on gun control I, guess you'd have to say we saw that with the Choice Act, they've identified an industry that I'm sure that I feel passionately about but run it very effectively as a campaign and we to see the results from the referendum but I think all the indications are that referring to May. Well, pass what do they do in opposition? Are they gonNA spend the next three years shouting into the wind or is this something that a opposition parties and not even the biggest opposition party can do to achieve some of the names? Yes. So I think. What David seem all would be well advised to doesn't need my advice on as I'm sure he's come to this conclusion himself as to very clearly identify what air each of the ten in pieces responsible for. So for instance, he's already put Simon Cortin in charge of their environmental policy, which is a relief to me because I pissed they wanNA. See Matt Cameron I'm Chris Bailey in charge of it. So if he can allow them to focus into to get to know Ki Ki seek to representatives to get the heat around the existing legislation and identify with I think it needs to be changed. That could be quite effective team pieces a lot. you know if you've got somebody who's specializing in and health somebody's specializing in compulsory education somebody who's specializing in tissue. And Wick right through you can. You can cover a lot of ground with your staff on that. is almost a third of the opposition now. So it is going to plan gnomes roll. We'll see them in select committees, following your areas of specialty there. So for instance, at Suncorp, I'm sure we'll see him sitting in on an environmental issues, environmental reforms, and that that that'd be area for them to scrutinize legislation, which costs a fundamental jaw Bovina position and charging by where there might be hosting and for them as a policy matter to up what they're gonNA campaign on. Okay, let's to that list. Number three Nicole McKay. Hey, she is the firearms activist Game Animal Management has become an issue over the last three years. Most of those are the last few months and we need to address it from inside the House as well. So I think we know a lot about her I'm already She's been a strong and credible I would say voice for the gun lobby sounds too harsh. Doesn't. That's not the right. And she speaks calmly and rationally. Which? Sounds like damning with faint praise, but it really is something I. Think Can to to have constructive sides to that debate. At this time she's quite. Fully because the much as with the climate change policy the gun policy is actually really really vague I. Mean You'd sent for party campaigning hard on on gun issues that have a clear policy. They don't what they basically say whether policy basically is last year's gun changes would done a little bit too fast and the public wasn't properly consulted in taking along and so we want to do it all again, we want to have a commission and we want to listen to other commission finds and we want to listen to the public listened to the gun lobby as well as the anti gun lobby who we reach the laws. There's not really taking a position. There's just saying, let's do it all again. Chris was for fifteen years. I police officer in youth aid. He's been a secondary school teacher for special needs, kids, and his a small business owner, Chris Bailey is a proponent of personal responsibility wants to see more support for small businesses following covid nineteen Mr Bailey is a big fan of the country's jazz scene and is a bit of a musician himself. In a in a couple of days Baynes has done for for quite a while now. Not particularly good that I really enjoy it I think you can hear a lot from Chris bellio about law and order. And you're going to hear a lot from him about education and you probably and David Seaman shut him up you probably GonNa. Hear from about climate change as well. Like I said, he's he thinks is some climate of hysteria and fear around us and that we're too we're responding in an overall. He's been supporting accents. He was eighteen years old he's studying is Small Business Sam meet speaks fluent Chinese. Young Guy. But he's got a pretty big skillset number five on the list Simon Court was the fist had headlines for his past with revelations. Last week he was once noted from Fiji. He sees for raising issues about work done by Chinese Communist Party contractors. He was working as an engineer as an environmental engineer he's come to the conclusion is. Innovation not more regulation that we require to solve our environmental problems, and then with a green thumb Mr called believes in reducing waste to landfill and wants to see the Resource Management Act replaced he's also the father of three high school age boys the youngest with Down Syndrome or really want to make sure there's a bit of world for him when he comes out from stolen training I'm a will bit more. Accepting of people and their disability and also want to see more opportunities for those people to participate in work. Today wants to repeal the flow twenty, twenty two women that would force GP to tell police when a firearms owners seeking health into health issues, and he said who have the opposite effect what police intended as it's more likely that people who own firearms within avoid seeking help. So he's concerned that that by. Providing doctors wife where they are actually allowed to report confidential medical patient medical matters to police. If they're concerned that somebody might be volatile and as again he's saying, no, we we have to keep that medical confidentiality sacrosanct and that way. Then we know that these people will actually have the confidence to go and talk to the doctors. Is he the one that has a lot to say that mental health issues and disability? Michiko civil wait tim pays who got some really. Meaningful, personal experience and family experience and clearly bring that to the table and. I'm I'm quite excited actually about the contribution act going to make them on me to health because several.

Fresh update on "mp" discussed on Coffee House Shots
"Welcome to coffee shops, spectators, daily politics podcast I'm Cindy and I'm joined by James for Saif and John. Carney our knees at. Now, we thought that the northern MP may have gone a bit quiet over the last few days. But today they came back with a fury John Iverson about what's happened in the latest in spat between regional MP's and donning streaky. Tell us about what happened today of course. As you say it's just A. Few weeks off from sort of the Knoll the North rebelling against him and then today last night around forty plus Tori MP's roach the prime minister saying that they were worried that the leveling agenda which he unveiled last year as part of his in his post-election says sort of level up the north has been sidelined because of the covid pandemic and it's sort of a general nervousness amongst Tori northern MP's that they're going to be sidelined under the sort of overwhelming costs of covert and they'll the economic costs of going to mean the agenda is in kind of feasible. And James in this letter sent by the North Nine PGA over fifty MP's and a lot of them are new two, nine, hundred intake is that significant that these new MP's? Rebelling. Rebelling no voting against the government the willingness to put that heads by the power to join a group. A. The. This letter is not in this doesn't exactly say the government's doing a wonderful job. Please keep on doing one. It's more making pointed things. Don't let leveling off in the infrastructure spending be a victim of the pandemic. And I it. Does illustrate attention, which is the Kobe has the state has done more because of covid than I think anyone would expect sister paid eight hundred people's way to the new original scheme now. So let's generous game still paying a laundromat and a loss of millions of workers, wages and. Google route demonstrates this to you know wants to state staunch doing something taking that away become more politically problematic. But I mean most people think that the economy is going to be smaller as a result of covid. So then the question becomes gonNA walk can you spend the money on I personally think the capital bits of leveling up on probably fatty safe. I mean I mean the markets will be very happy to borrow to fund infrastructure spending. So you northern powerhouse rail always kind of things I mean that stuff is relatively say, I think it is the day-to-day budget which is going to face more pressure but. The. Interesting thing about is lesser is their willingness to go public content and I think it reflects something which is I, mean, there's a huge anger from norman twin he's. Djuro may remember this.

#1 Marketing Skill That Will Get You Hired in 2021 (Hint: Not SEO or PPC)
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. And I'm Neil Patel and today we're going to be talking about the number one marking skill that will get you hired in twenty twenty one and it's not SEO PPC. So what is it Neil? The number one skill that will get you hired in twenty twenty one is going to be creativity and you're probably wondering how the heck is this a marketing skill while as Andrew, chanoine one said our marketing channels eventually, Goto Shit in other words. The. Channels out there they're going to cause people to compete get crowded with you and when you end up doing things like that, they just get expensive and their heart approves Roi from but it doesn't mean that you can't do well as a marketer. You just need to be creative. You know an Eric and I have talked about this. When people are digging UNITA Zach you need to get creative and do some of the opposite of stuff or tests new unique stuff. For example, when Russell Brunson wanted to grow his podcast he was giving away free MP three players installing his podcasts on there to really help boost his numbers. That's example. Of, getting super creative and the list goes on on like one thing that I'm trying to do right now is working on our commercial strip. So we're going to start running television ads throughout the united. States and we're GONNA skill it up and just really go hard and hit really hard and branding people are going to be like meal. Why would you run television as your digital marketing agency everyone in your space talks about how digital is better than television sure. But Television does a better chance at branding than digital does so like just doing new creative things when competition is not willing to that's how you win in the long run. And, one thing we looked at in the past is if you open up the facebook Ad Library you can see that Russell Brunson who neil just mentioned he runs a ton of new creatives he's creating new stuff all the time it's new ad creative and it's new offers under concert rotating because there's banner blindness and there's also offer blindness while People WanNa keep saying the same thing over and over. So the thing is too if you look at response rates in terms of your engagement rates and conversion rates and all that you know it all starts to decline. Once, you have something working. So you have to immediately start them work on the next one, and so I remember for our consulting school program where we show agencies, how to get more clients. Basically, the one thing we struggled with was creative everything was subpar to click the rates were all under one percent for the longest time once we started look thinking about, okay. How do we make better creative? The team got together and our click the rates over two percent, right. So one of the things we look at at the top of funnel metric is what is Our Click through rate first and then not cutting finals down to everything else your conversion are your CPA numbers and things like that. So creative is by far the number one thing and it's hard to find people that are creative right now it's for whatever reason if you work in tech usually if you're gonNA demand generation, they're hiring you to just run paid ads right and then you might have someone that does some email stuff but there aren't people that are really well rounded understand copywriting psychology which all ties in with creativity as well. Right so at the. End of the day, you have to practice the stuff we've talked about a lot of books recommend around copywriting around Seo, things like that but you gotta become more well rounded and when you becoming well rounded and creative keep in mind that just knowing ideas to tasks in knowing solutions isn't enough you gotta be able to execute on them because if you can't execute an implement them without very little help, you're not going to do well, and like the people who are creative and can move fast are the ones who tend to do extremely well in the marketing world. Yet the final ad that's been critical for us around that program that I was talking about is we do a daily stand up every single day and we talk about creatives. We talked about iterating very quickly because you can't just wait if you start waiting a week every time you do you're you're spending in a good chunk of money while at the end of the day, you're not going to be able. To iterating quickly enough, and that's going to cause your performance to to fall apart. So that's just a side thing that you might want to consider if you are looking to scale a campaign. So that is it. For today
Loved Labours won: landslide in New Zealand
"This weekend New Zealand's Labour Party swept to a fairy-tale victory stunned. Prime Minister. Justin. The are dern beamed as a rapturous crowd applauded beginning her speech with a thankful molly reading. In. In tongue it Athena what? dern promised a big tent kind of administration. For every New Zealand has never been so important more than it has been now. We living in an increasingly polarized world a place where more and more people have lost the ability to see one. Another's point of view having come in for criticism during the campaign on failing to address housing shortages and poverty. She acknowledged there were difficulties ahead. Over the next three years. There is much to do. We will build back better from the covert crisis. Stronger. With an answer to the mini challenges New Zealand. Already faced. Challenges or no the scale of the win came as a surprise even to her supporters. The easiest way of describing is that it was unparalleled in modern history. I wonder why it had Austrailia and correspondent say the Labor Party which has just endured dance policy one, forty, nine percent of the and that was compared to nearly twenty seven percent for the main opposition, which is called the national policy, which is conservative that is the best result Labor's result for any policy since the fifties and it gives it a majority of seats in parliament, and that is the first time that any he's been. Able to govern on its own underneath. Zealand. System of proportional representation which has been in place since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, they were winning in both provincial rural conservative strongholds, ondon rich city areas, and to give sense New Zealanders vote for both the preferred party and an MP on their ballots and labor top the preferred party votes in sixty eight of its seventy constituencies really astounding result for them and what was the the campaign like De Campaign was focused on pretty much only one subject which was the government's response to the coronavirus. It was really a referendum on how the government and I think in voters is particularly prime minister has responded to the virus that response was to shut down the borders, I to China, and then to the rest of the world and then to rally support. For, what was a very, very strict lockdown in New Zealand at the beginning of the pandemic and say, Bara brief surges pretty much. Succeeded I. Need Twenty Five people have died and that was really what the campaign focus on the fact that life has been able to return and roughly to normal people are eating out people cramming into restaurants and their normal numbers. Forty six thousand people watching rugby match against Australia, this weekend. So the campaign was very much focused on that response and the opposition kind of found it quite difficult. See Find Ground on which to oppose the government, and so the scale of that result then is just a reflection of how satisfied everyone has been with the response to the pandemic. That is the singular issue of its left remembering that before the pandemic hits. Labor a was looking the polls. The suggesting that Labor was on track to lose. This election would have been a one term government, which is not very common in New Zealand central a being. Overseas particularly, for the way that she responded to the Christ church terrorist attacks, they were much last year when these two mosques were attacked by a white supremacist and she was obviously hailed. The way she united New Zealand does after that and staunchly defended immigrants but adulation wasn't really reflected back at home until the pandemic has. So was this a vote for her or a vote for the Party and it's I think it's got to be with her and not a great deal to do with the Party and its policies. So it was a campaign that was thin on policy on both sides update from national and Labour but I think it was a set of referendum on the prime minister's response. To the coronavirus even historisches appointment submit that she's a very gifted communicator particularly in times of crisis and young people particularly look to her. She has a kind of unpretentious approachability that I think that a lot of Kiwis light and political analysts in New Zealand will say that it's very much a politics of personality though she wasn't always popular home as she was overseas. I, think that Kiwis do derive a kind of sense of pride from hug label standing as well. So in a way that has served her well at home. Speaking to damage he said that her brilliant lies in the way she plays into their sense of exceptionalism. In key, we always liked to think that set apart by more than their geography and they punch above that waits. But what about apart from the personality and crisis management and so on. What about sort of kitchen table politics? This is. Just. On the Labor government comes in for a lot of criticism because when she came to power in two thousand seventeen. Labor was making a lot of very lofty promises to do things like reduce child poverty it was going to end homelessness in New Zealand. It was going to build one hundred thousand affordable houses in ten years. Of generally make New Zealand to Faira Besser country and it's pretty much failed to deliver on every single one of those things. The Prime Minister's critics point out that almost counts of poverty and social inequality museum and actually heading quits. Houses are increasing at the moment in New Zealand increasing through the crisis. So this is a big big criticism of her detractors that she is a great at moving motivational speeches, but quite a poor Administra- certain hasn't actually got much done. So that might explain why this time around the world kind of such lofty promises it was rather more timid. But. She's still got a strong base of support is on the left who are GonNa be expecting her to do a lot more particularly now she's not in. She's she's not having to form a coalition particularly now that she can govern on her own and so to your mind the the big difference then between the first term and this coming second term is that she that Labour will be governing alone. Is the big difference with governing Elaine comes a lot more responsibility. There is still a chance that Labor form some kind of coalition with the Greens will they. They don't need. Them might be handy have degrees inside the government say they're not handling the sidelines said that could either be a formal coalition or a more informal arrangement in which the Greens folks with Labor early onset issues. So a much stronger position on a lot more pressure within this time around. But what about fulfilling all those promises in light of the economic situation? I mean new. Zealand certainly must have suffered economically from the pandemic if not quite so much as elsewhere in terms of the human cost, it is in a recession. Now the economy is going to contract by about six percent. This year unemployment is rising the wage subsidy that is coming off. So Wild New Zealand has done very well at keeping the virus out there going to be lots more questions about what that has caused it, and how it is going to drive a recovery how it's going to get out of that mess. The Prime Minister says that there is a plan for recovery which includes things like building lots of roads but to her pregnancy looks quite incremental. They out there in no big plans for tax reform for example of just third some income tax hikes. But only on the talk to percent of workers say theoretically might think that with such strong majority, they pressure more radical agenda but there are many people in New Zealand see that. So to be so popular, you've got to be fairly uncontroversial owner. Thank you very much for joining us. Thanks, Jason.
Apple's HomePod Mini may pack a punch, but not versatile
"Upcoming from apple is the home pod many a ninety, nine dollar small compact version of the smart. Speaker that I introduced two years ago as the home homepage for three, hundred, fifty dollars, and now it's GonNa take on Amazon Echo speakers in Google's nest audio All three are selling for one hundred dollars I think that's this is going to be a big Christmas gift I have not heard the small home pod mini yet. They did a nice job of making it sound great. It's cute. It's compact it responds to Siri. It's supposed to have great sound what it doesn't have. Is, much abscessed other services beyond apple music, which caused nine, ninety, nine, a month. Let's compare. Apple will let you listen to music from the apple music subscription service or from. Pandora. Period. If you go to Amazon and like to listen to music on the Echo, you can listen on Apple Music Amazon music. spotify or Sirius Xm and unnecessary audio, which is the new name for the old Google home. Speaker. You have your choice of Youtube Music spotify serious Pandora. Now really interesting is that if you there is no free version of apple music so you want to listen to songs you either have to own the MP threes. Pay For Apple Music where on the other speakers spotify has an ad supported version youtube has an ad supported version in on Amazon against spotify has an ad supported version. Amazon. has a free version not it doesn't have as many songs as the premium version. So I think you have a lot more choice I will be doing a speaker showdown to see which one sounds the best. So far I've listened to the new nest audio which sounds incredible. If you buy two of them for a hunt, two, hundred dollars, basically one hundred dollars a piece you'll have some pretty amazing sound. An apple is suggesting we do the same thing with the homepage many which will be out in November the new. Redesigned Amazon Echo Speaker will be out on October twenty second. I'll have that soon, I'll fill you in on how it sounds while the new nest audio is.
WHO: Letting virus spread to reach herd immunity is "unethical"
"As the covid nineteen pandemic has been sucked ever further. into. The deeply tedious culture wars polarizing many Western democracies they gathering climate has been made on behalf of so called herd immunity. This is the fairy which holds that if nature is permitted to take its course, within reason, sufficient antibodies will be distributed among the populace to reduce the viruses spread to a manageable kroll. The World Health Organization has now sat emphatically upon this view who chief Ted, Ross Cabrera's calling herd immunity scientifically, and ethically problematic one joined with more by Dr. Chris Smith. Our Health and science correspondent also virologist Cambridge University. Chris, he calls it scientifically and ethically problematic I. Think the ethical problem is pretty easy to spot, which is that you know a great many people would need to die. What's the actual scientific problem here if you would just taking a brutally utilitarian approach? Well I think really it's a lack of knowledge the moment we think that about ten percent of the world's population. So perhaps even as many as a billion people rounds bit more than ten percent have had the infection, but we don't know, and the reason we don't know is because in order to work out with people have had it or not we have to do antibody tests and antibodies. And you can think of this as the analogy is a bit like footprints left in the snow when you've had an infection, a person who has had it and cleared it no longer has any virus detect, but the footprints of the vars having been there all the antibodies left in your immune response. If you take those antibodies, that's a sure fire marker, you must have encountered whatever the infection is that you're interested in the problem is that it's not clear to us that when we test people for antibodies, all we rarely detecting all the people that have really been infected or have. We missed some have we missed. A few are more people responding in ways where they might antibodies the we're looking for. We just don't know at the moment. So scientifically, we don't really know what we're tackling here. We don't know what the long term consequences of coronavirus infection are. They may be trivial. They may not at least for proportion of people there is this phenomenon dubbed. Long Cove where people have post infection, inflammatory syndromes and symptoms that can go on for months. Now, we don't know what fraction of the population get that or whether certain people are more susceptible to that younger people older people we don't know. So scientifically, medically, there are issues here. If we understood the thing completely you'd say, well, we know exactly what we're getting into. Sign. On the dotted line or not whereas with this, it's a black box. We don't know what's inside on the subject of understanding things completely where are you on the UK's most recent? Of restrictions lay his TIA's and levels. The U. K. seeking to make things clearer because they've been criticisms levelled at the government for having rules that people not even prime minister. An Very Scottish MP's can remember, and as a result, this is leading to confusion transgressions and that's translating into more spread of the virus. So in order to gain a tighter grip on the virus, the outbreaks in various parts of the country, this tiered system has been introduced to on tier two tier three also dubbed medium high, very high risk and the idea is that everybody across. The country has a baseline of medium risk and so anybody who's not in special restrictions at the moment is medium but in other parts of the country where there are special measures needed, you have this way of escalating up to high risk and the threshold is said to be one hundred per hundred thousand people in the population who are affected in order to trigger that escalation and I think part of this is not just that the people everywhere know where they stand they know how prepare for if they're area becomes. A higher risk area local planners can put in place policies but also means that more control can be potentially devolved to local authorities and local actors because there, there's a lot of knowledge on the ground are very skilled people in public health and so on who could work more strategically locally and I think some of these measures do open the door to more of that kind of thing. But again, it's it's produced the usual anticipated reaction of people. As I'm away confused today blame them people are confused there's lots of. Uncertainty and no one likes this sort of change when you've just got used to work in one way and then morals come in and people are obviously trying to to make sense of how exactly this is or isn't going to work the thing that would of course stops or savers from having to try and understand what the government is telling. US would be a vaccine in has been bad news I guess on that front, which is Johnson and Johnson suspending trials of their vaccine. Do we know why that happened? Nobody's worth bearing in mind that this happens all the time. When we're developing drugs, foams, companies go into the drug development vaccine manufacturing process expecting to fail ninety percent of the time not because they're not good at what they do. It's because they're very good at what they do that they succeed ten percent of the time, but it's a very tough. Challenge with very rigorous standards and west safety is an absolute priorities of red line that you can't cross safety and ethics. So as soon as you have a trial running if there's anything untoward, the the safe thing to do that point is you hope the trial you investigate and you appoint somebody independent of the trial who is an independent observer who will Come, in they would appraise the situation and then they'll cite note we can. We can say this is not because of the drug this is because of natural occurrences something you can resume your trial but on safety grounds, you always hope thing investigate and then make a decision and this happens a lot to happen to Astra Zeneca a couple of months ago. A month or so ago with with their co vaccine and investigators came end, they found that there were cases reported. There was a new case of a of a condition transverse lightest, which is an inflammatory condition of the central nervous system. They were able to say, well, because this happened sporadically in the population, there's no reason to suspect that this was caused. By the vaccine in this case. So we'll resume the trial. It may be that this the same will happen for. Johnson. And Johnson's vaccine trial. So is there any consensus really among you and your fellow boffins about likely timeframe for vaccine will I've asked a couple of people this one person who is working on behalf of one of the regulators to keep. Tabs on one of the vaccine projects. Another person who's actually in the finance sector has been having conversations with the pharmaceutical companies at the front runner in this and both interestingly guy very similar time windows suggesting that about of next year was the most likely time by which we would have data assuming that the data that is provided are provided shows. The vaccines work I mean. Let's assume that because that's a big. If an it's necessary if assuming everything works, then you've got to go through various checks and balances and take a lot of boxes from a safety point of view which takes time and so that's why they're saying probably midway through next year, and then there's the whole issue of WHO's going. To get vaccinated because in a report in the Financial Times last week Kate. Bingham who's the vaccine taskforce lead said an acknowledged that about thirty million people are front runners for receiving vaccines. But where does that leave the other thirty five, million not? No, no information has been provided. Yes. On on what the government strategy is going to be.

Buy the way? Kyrgyzstans post-election chaos
"President whose whereabouts are unknown parliamentary offices overrun by protesters. Multiple opposition candidates vying to take the title of Prime Minister. After a national election confusion and chaos have. The former Soviet state of Kirghistan talked between Kazakhstan and China. Central Asia is a region ruled by strong men who typically get close to one hundred percent of the vote. So three years ago when in by Jane Bekov was elected Kurdistan's president uneventfully with fifty five percent was hailed as the region's first peaceful and democratic transfer of power look. Zone the but even then there were murmurs of electoral misconduct. This time the murmurs or a roar. Absence uncontested leadership has turned a country where both China and Russia have interests into a tinderbox. On Sunday K. Gestalt went to the polls to elect a new parliament and it was this event that ended up propelling, Stan about of political chaos because all of the opposition parties and also many of the people of kick stance they didn't accept the result join a Lewis Right about Central Asia for the economist and is based in Kazakhstan they started to come. In on Monday when a preliminary count showed that pro-presidential parties would be dominating parliamment and the opposition would have few seats. Book would be almost entirely shutout people took to the streets. Immediately thousands of people went to the main square in the capital Bishkek Sasi demonstrating against those results and when the police found to disperse, them will pitched battles between riot, police and protest. Of them, the protesters stormed the building housing, the president's office and Parliament and they were shouting that he should go and what is it that happened in the election that lead to such a reaction Without, that what? Protesters were absolutely furious about the I was that they believed that the results were skewed in favor of parties broadly loyal to the president. The second question that was really exercising these enraged protesters was how that was achieved and the allegation is that there was absolutely rampant vote buying I really have to say it was an open secret. In fact, it wasn't a secret that parties were going around paying people money to vote in their favour. We even know the going rate it was two thousand. Psalm, which is about twenty five dollars. Now, this is all alleged central investigation, but the evidence was was fairly credible that was circulating on social media. So when the results came in, that's why they took to the streets. What's the situation on the ground now who control? Well, events have moved in a very fluid manner fast moving because cake is Stan remains very much embroiled in this political turmoil, and really what we've seen forming is a power vacuum. The whereabouts of the president are actually unknown. By bekov says he's in control of the situation through spokespeople, but meanwhile, some political factions are at odds with other political factions. So all of those opposition forces and they're very disparate include nationalist liberal form as all kinds of different forces they are failing to find common cause. I mean we've seen mops from some actions basically aging in fisticuffs with other factions. The threat of violence has been hanging in the air in Kansas Stan and so what next how? How to unravel this? If protests have succeeded in having one of the main demands met the day after they stormed the presidential offices in parliament, the electoral commission announced that it would annul the results of those elections and they promised that there would be a rerun of the election. But of course, what's not clear with how can an election be now held in the current circumstances are power vacuum sporadic violence people out on the street so it's really unclear. If that's enough to satisfy the protesters and it's not only about the protesters. At this point, it's very much about the political factions, the clans, the people who are now jostling for power the prime minister who but bag Baranov resigned, and we have two rivals already claiming to be the prime minister. One of them is a rabble rousing nationalist former MP called Saudi Jackpot of who was actually sprung from jail during the unrest by his supporters and he had. Been in jail for kidnapping a local official during a previous bout of political unrest Mr Japan supporters have been aggressively sometimes violently trying to prevent rival factions from meeting besieging buildings in which they're meeting, throwing stones and scuffling with rivals. Basically, what happens next is a big question. It's a very unpredictable, very chaotic and potentially dangerous situation and given all that chaos and the potential for danger here. Do you do you think this has an international dimension to it? Outside powers are expressing deep concern over the situation in Kingston. On the one hand, we have China with which is Stan shares border and China has expressed concern and is clearly alarmed at reports that protesters are targeting Chinese own business interests in the country. Specifically, all my said operated by Chinese companies, and then on the other side, we have Russia, which is obviously stands former colonial power. Russia has a military base in Stan and it really doesn't like to see popular uprisings in what it considers to be its own. Geopolitical backyard, and this is of particular concern at this point in time because Russia has been looking on with great alarm at protests in Belarus on the other side of the former Soviet Union where protesters have a weeks now been coming out against the results of presidential elections indeed this week the Kremlin has started to make no secret of is concerned about events in is Stan and as basically saying that it's descending into chaos and that Moscow has obligations under a security treaty to prevent the situation from breaking down. From breaking down further I mean how how bad could this if this carries on? The confusion that Stan covertly faces may in the end how President Jiang Becker to hang onto power although it's very, very clear that at this point, he is not going to get the pliant parliament that he was hoping to get out of this election. He has three years left in office. Presidents can only serve a single term that's under a system introduced to prevent power grabs books. It's important to remember that is people have thrown two presidents in the past. So a suggestion Bekker's position is very shaky and what is really clear is the longer the power vacuum that we're currently seeing a stand remains unresolved the more likely it becomes that violence will be used to resolve it. Thanks very much for joining US join us. Thank you very much.

Students return to campus in the UK
"Are packing their bags and moving into accommodation returning to campus. The term is getting up and running. The government is nowhere to be seen off on looking from your perspective. Oh, well, I've tried to keep my head down on it. Actually we've had it's been a you know, you as you can imagine an enormously busy time. We've been playing for this moment for four or five months. We have to keep adjusting the plans. We keep having, you know review government policy and advice that's coming in and local advice from northamptonshire. And I I find a lot of the media a distraction actually. I mean I did I did listening to you and yours that you were on earlier in the week marks. I thought would be really interesting to get the the perspective of parents families and students from all over the country and it was interesting but I think I found that the kind of the torrid frenzied pace of the media wasn't really helping a sink clearly through the issues where we had to take responsibility for things and make you know, birth. Decisions with a huge amount of uncertainty and lots of independent variables. So I'm really pleased to see if students come back onto campus. We've had teaching this week. It's been long distance that many students or staff indeed wandering around the campus in between times, but the rooms have been occupied and at that means I think that as far as I can tell all the plan to put in place for our lenders face-to-face and online teaching are going as well as we could hope at this point. We are we are dealing with high Flex that she may want to talk about cuz I know Jim came by Flex earlier, I think a few months ago, but we couldn't work out another way to do that where we had students who had to be off site and students who had to be on site and we didn't have enough rest and resource to teach them separately. So we are at the office trying to teach them synchronously and that's obviously challenging technically and and pedagogically course and you mentioned you and yours the thing that struck me about that and this thing into lots of popular dog. Pictures of the last week or so is that kind of cuz the concern of parents starting to cut through and and they're calling into radio for their writing to their MPS and that they're certainly making making Making Waves and I guess the government is has noticed that input really found a way of responding yet. But I've noticed that and that was that was kind of my take away from that. Are you seeing are you seeing kind of anxious parents as wage dropping effect of their children? Are they kind of talking to the university? I'm not getting it directly actually one of the things I find interesting about that you're you and your Christmas what I thought was actually rather infantilizing a month and the the presenter kept referring to you know, did you let your children do this and she kept correcting herself, but you know, obviously it's a very difficult time because I've got a seventeen-year-old and talk talking to a lot of parents and I do you know, I I fully appreciate what an anxious time is but my, you know, my my daughter says I said to her would you go and she was like, yeah, I'd really want to get started. Want to get stuck in and I I think I think one of the things we've we've done wrong actually in the whole representation of this is to treat it, you know Planet campus if it's different from the rest of the world and I think well, you know students been in they've been coping with all the things that would happen in the last five months six months. They don't expect University, you know to suddenly be this completely different world wear masks don't have to be worn or you know, there is some social distancing and I don't think we should compare this year necessarily to previous years as if we could wind the clock back cuz we can't wind the clock back. All we can do is make this here. It's good as it can be and I really think we're doing that simplifies to the parent who said there's an academic as well. And he said what we're doing is really hard. We're doing the best we can it's really important we do it properly and I totally agree with that. Yeah. Yeah, Joe. How're things on here Thursday. This week so our students were arriving this week. So all the majority of the undergraduate surviving this week. So could have lots of fingers crossed that it goes well, but just to kind of taught to transport with the past six months off. Of preparation that's been I've never seen anything like it in in higher education. We forget six months ago. We were working out how to do assessments online. So we could finish the last that could be Academic Year and then those kind of cheese contingency plans will be putting in place of have been meant that people work incredibly hard both are the teaching side of the learning technology side, but also on the operational side in terms of wage accommodation making sure that the the campuses can be as secure as possible putting testing and and tracing operations in place in short. So I think they're kind of paying for the office hoping for the best approach. Hopefully that that that will get us through I think just for talk to the point in terms of the student experience. I think we just have to do the very best we can for students to get the best education and birth experience that they can get under these circumstances. And as a Shaun said isn't isn't normal circumstances. We can't we can't pretend to teach but I think for these eighteen-year-old starting University now dead. I mean they've had a pretty challenging few months themselves with the with the results Fiasco, but also they've been locked down at home. They haven't been socializing with their the school friends. And in the same way that they would want to in the last year of school. So I think if I were a teen I'd be wanting to get to University irrespective of the of the circumstances.
Covid-19 news: UK government criticised for confusion over new rules
"The prime minister himself has been struggling with the new rules and regulations hasn't naked. Yes. Sunny Kevin Williamson cleared up one confused this morning. But as soon as he cleared one confusion, a along came another of confusion. This is. New which are being applied in the northeast which ban mix you households in Northumberland Newcastle Gateshead sunlit and Canty, and a couple of places. But the confusion arose over whether you can put down the pub ever point with your mates in the pub garden. The prime minister was asked about this and he started talking about the rule of six on the rule of six. Outside the areas where such as the northeast where extra measures have been been brought in? Six inside six outside and in in the northeast Ohio and other areas where extra. Tight measures have been brought in, you should follow the guidance. Of. Local authorities.

In this case, he later apologize saying he misspoke Sally's he's tried to clear that this one of quickly. But it certainly is another dent in the governor's authority, and in this crucial issue, trust, the government needs to be trusted by the public is handling this pandemic properly. Because it's going to persuade the public to follow the rules and the laws that e
Italys parliamentary shake-up
"The reduction of Italy's national parliament was a typical five-star and typical populist promise grand dramatic sweeping eye-catching rabble-rousing and. Totally. Pointless. Pressed for a rationale beyond pandering to the anti-establishment grouch ing voters five star claimed that axing impedes would save money even five star assessed that this might run to roughly a billion euros of the next decade, which in the context of the outgoings of the government of the world's eighth largest economy is a wretchedly poultry hillock of beans. Granted that Italy's parliament was by Global Standards Lodge among the world's democracies only the United Kingdom and Germany seat more impedes in their lower house but the UK has roughly the same number of people living in it as Italy and Germany more. Granted. Also that a quantity of Italian MP's will have been inept crooked, lazy silly insane and or drunk but the proportions are unlikely to have differed significantly from those of other elected assemblies and at any rate five stars initiative seems more focused on quantity than quality. Nevertheless, the idea was also backed by most of Italy's political parties who decided that being accessories to a massacre of themselves was politically more sensible than defending the status quo. When anti-establishment sentiment reaches a critical mass, it requires ran nerve to tell cranky voters that may be governing is more complicated than they might think. But possibly more interesting and perhaps even more encouraging results of local and municipal elections held in seven regions across Italy the same day as the referendum. These, conversely did not go brilliantly for Italy's recently triumphant populists league the right wing Tub Thumpers who at one point ran the country with five star in a coalition as unlikely as their eventual falling out was inevitable had made promises. If not assumptions of sweeping the board, they did not obey we lost. That's clear. I'm happy because I'm sure that many of the forty percent of people who voted for us to back that acceleration audition east. Regrettably the elections were not a total bust later, they held onto Veneta and lagoon area and will probably form a government invalid Diaz to. Even more regrettably the brothers of Italy a gruesome sack of ultra-nationalist won the regional presidency in McKay. But results elsewhere looked like a vote of confidence in at least current national government, the Democratic Party who replaced later as five styles. Coalition Partners surprised many by keeping Campania, Puglia and Tuscany. As these votes have been counted, everyone has claimed victory the labor force slightly expanding their reach the brothers of Italy, for eating into his share of flag flapping head banging sentiment the Democratic Party for resisting the populous surge five star for winning their referendum. But may be and two thousand and twenty s clearly in which all optimism demand asterix the real winner is the recently fashionable contention that governing is difficult and best done by people who know what they're doing as opposed to Yahoos and grand dieters who enjoy being on television. Italy's governments like everyone's have been brutally tested this year the relationship between general diligence and effectiveness in dealing with covid nineteen has been difficult to miss competent representatives of the people have demonstrated the value and in some places there scarcity. As, a consequence of five stars referendum, Italians will now have fewer representatives trying to answer to more people. It seems reasonably likely that this will prove a hollow victory but as more folk are hopefully realizing in Italy and elsewhere, that's the only victory that populists ever win.
New York MTA's proposed rules target homeless population, advocate says

Italy votes to cut number of MPs and senators
"Cara the initiative. First of all to reduce the number of MP's this was a big headline initiative of the five Star Movement. Why was that? Did they have a sincere belief in reducing the the role of government in Italian life or did they just think that you never lose votes by leading up on politicians? Well, the movement five stars as people who do follow Italian politics will know was born essentially as an anti elitist movement from the very onset in fact, it was never. Going to be a party, I told at the very beginnings it's very point was to remove the privilege of the ruling elite and the the the reduce reducing the number of of MP's was seen as part of that historically There is a consideration, the one of the main considerations from the point of view of the movie stars and other parties that have. Box. This referendum is to save on the cost of politics whether the cost is actually relevant enough. The savings are relevant enough to actually make significant difference is to be determined but it's difficult to oppose such measures from the point of view of symbolism writes in the. PD. So the center left Party, the Democrat, party has had to back this referendum eventually partly because we are they are now in a ruling coalition. With the move and five stars and they don't want to be seen at odds with one another because that could put the government risk. But also because nobody wants to be perceived as the party who's protecting the elites ultimately because the cost thing is nonsense isn't it's one billion euros over ten years which in the context of the national budget of a country, the size of Italy is beans it is and that's been remarked a number of times As I said, it's more about the symbolic gesture than anything else in front. One of the a practical consequences that this reduction will have is that a will significantly decrease the amount of representation. So that right now, there is one MP in the Chamber of Deputies. Every. Ninety six, thousand, Italians dutton number will now go up to one each one, hundred, fifty, one, thousand Italians, and think the will be particularly seved at the level of the Senate because the Senate is elected kind of via regional route so that there is different electoral colleges, etc, and set in regions will see the number of their elected representatives go down by or more than half, and that's significant from the point of view of how much. Swayed will have in the chamber. Extremely significant and does appear to be the obvious drawback of this game. Nevertheless, it was very popular among your fellow. Italians with seventy percent voting for why is that? Do you think? Do you think that's an if you think about Europe as a whole? Is that an unusually high number more than usually sick of the people who are running the country? I think one of the reasons why the result was so high as because it was ultimately backed by lot of parties so that the party division line was less dark than it would've been now the situations in which these referendums have been politicized the moving five stars of course voted yes it's electorate voted compactly. Yes. Like almost ninety six percent or something this deal moving five-star electorate voted. For, yes. But the PD also officially backed it and the vast majority of the electorate of the Lega and all the rest of the center right also did. So when you sum up all these different parties that there's less of a political kind of undercurrent to it, other than a win for the moon five stars and a not rocking of the current political establishment because ultimately PD also bacteria. That's the political meaning that you're going to be gleaning out of it. So on the subject of gleaning political meaning from things, these regional elections were held at the same time. What did they tell us? It's very interesting because a lot of people over the last few years have wondered whether Salvini could get back on on his horse. Matteo Salvini. Yeah, no indeed and these regional elections where a very important appointment because it's the first time that Italians do vote after covid right? And there were a number of regions that historically have been left wing regions that were thought. They could go to the center right and that hasn't largely happened the centre-left has held in many of the places where it wanted to hold a apart from a mark wearing fact, the candidate that's now become the governor doesn't come from Salvini Spotty, but from Italy Italia, which is the other far right party but less of a kind of northern secessionist heritage more of the Roman heritage right. What we're seeing across the bode board in these results is that Salvini is losing grip on many things, other challenges from within the center right IRA merging not least Georgia Maloney the leader of Fratelli d'italia. So this other far right party not least. Competition within his own party Ziad. The governor of Benetton very popular in his region because of his management of Cavite has skyrocketed to six to seventy six percent. Results in in the region and so I think we're what we're seeing is that the left wing is holding where it probably didn't even think it would hold this much and that context government despite content not being an elected official of the centre-left has actually given a lot more credibility to the current coalition that I think anybody would have expected doesn't strike you though that this is a a left versus right question on more of a professionals versus populists question because a like a pandemic is about a stern test that any government can face and obviously Italy was one of the first places in Europe to face it on a very large scale. Is it possible that something of this sort has reminded Italian voters that maybe there is something to be said for voting for blandly competent and relatively calm people who are actually capable of doing stuff i. think that's exactly the point partly because the populist narrative, very much centers around narratives around you know migration and other issues that don't really relate necessarily to what many Italians rating about right now, which is administration economic recovery, which is returning to schools on you know relatively less appealing because they are much more ordinary budget still, very, very important concerns and interestingly you mentioned you know that the rise of the. Leader? Many, of the regional leaders. The. Regional governors are now coming onto the national stage and where in the past I think we used to see a lot more mess come into national politics right now we're seeing a lot more of these figures that used to be very much in the background because not many people focused on regional governors. Suddenly they were putting a spotlight because of covid this new whole generation of politicians coming to the full, and we will have to see in the next few years. How many of them will make the jump to national politics?
First Impressions on COD Cold War's Multiplayer Alpha
"Speaking of the future we did get a little taste of the Cold War multiplayer this weekend as they dropped with, they're calling an Alpha I always think it's cute when these AAA developers drop an open Alpha like this is an Alpha for those who don't know is supposed to be like the rawest form of your game before you really get the kinks worked out an Alpha is not hey, everyone can download this and play it. And you're good at Oh. By the way, our game is also coming out in like three weeks like that is not how call Beta one, Beta, two or something like that. Alpha's a bit generous to say like Yeah we've never tested this out until right now. Yeah. Alpha will figure this all out. But give him a minimum project the same time on that though because doing that's going to allow them to see a lot of tendencies catch a lot of bugs. Yeah. There's already a ton that we will dive into but yeah, like I think. WHATEVER THEY WANNA call it. This was a good move on trailer park this very different than how we saw infinity ward handled their game already right. We already hear about a lot of coming changes issues that we may have right now may even be gone by the time we actually play the next open Beta here in just a few weeks now disclaimer on all this. This was only on playstation. So as only on the PS four as far as I know, it might have been on Xbox to you, but it was only on console just place it just playstation. So a nugent did play it the last time I pull the only thing I play my playstation at the moment is for NHL. That is it like I have a couple of single player games. That I might hop on here and they're like Spiderman last of us but for the most part, just NHL I have not played a first person shooter with a controller since call of duty World War Two which I think was the last one not. So. That that will. disclaimer here, this is just coming from a normal perspective K.. Yet I could talk about how you know I sucked. But to be honest I didn't even talk that bad because the auto so ridiculous that it. Makes me look a little decent little decent. disclaimer there now, right off the bat though I will say this and you mentioned it as soon as we started playing when this Moose over to PC and the pros get to play this game on apiece. Refresh rates and. Just everything that. Cleaning it up. They are going to be blown away. They're going to perform so much better. I feel like we're just going to get a better game because I noticed it immediately like right when I got in God we were playing a timid join day. Twelve map initially because we wanted to try out the new ship NAP and if our modern from not whatever whatever whatever you call it. Yeah. Like I mean the ship nap the big ships. By the way what did I say did I lie when I say any game that has a battleship map on it is already a top five game. Oh, very cool map but now that has like three shifts on it that you can jump from ship to ship to ship. Diving. In the water getting vehicles, I'm not saying it's going to be competitive in east sports because it won't be from a casual standpoint run that twenty four, seven, I want to twenty four, seven ship Matt playlist are like that ship nap a lot more than the snow map. Yeah. That were for the big map that. Out on the names of these mounts but yeah, I mean I noticed it right away like the sixty hertz graphics like it. All just felt like I was playing on my old computer that I got rid of like a couple years ago. Now, you know like it just felt like I was playing on outdated equipment like I was playing things low settings compared to what I'm used to, and so that was the first thing that I thought of also is man like we're gonNA get a product. They've ever had before in call of duty lead just right away just 'cause it didn't play bad. It's just it wasn't as good as you would want it to be you know try and constantly. Yup. First thing that hopped out to me. I, think overall time to kill. It feels good. It is longer than what modern warfare was I kinda like. Me Too because it was one thing is when you played modern warfare for the first time I, remember playing the Beta or whatever they called it for modern warfare and I remember I got my first kill and laughed out. Loud. How because remember I they started with the foam us in warfare and I laughed at how fast they died. I took you back. The hundred fifty HP or whatever they're doing for. There's like. It did feel good. I didn't have an issue with it like I felt like it took. The right amount of blitz you know just felt it felt okay. The way I did was I will say this it allows what is a very underrated thing I think modern warfare was missing. It. Allows the turnaround kill. It allows for for that clutch moment to where if someone's coming up from behind, you can turn around and get them right into had that level of casual level. It will create that hype. So I liked not. Time to that was a big. That was a big piece of it like I think that. Just felt good. Overall map seemed okay a little. You know they're six we six. So it's hard to judge. But seemed I liked him I really like I thought Moscow is I think Moscow is going to be a really fun map to watch on a competitive level especially for before they have some like good wide lanes on there I I love the the lanes that we saw a lot more traditional. To call of duty than what we saw this past year with modern warfare is you can very clearly conceived distinct three lanes on most of these maps Moscow I thought was really good. I think satellite is going to be a really fun to watch. I know you didn't play too much but I thought satellite was a really good map of Miami. I have some concerns about just because of the openness of the middle of the But again, it does at least have the proper three lanes but the really spread out. So very curious to see how like Miami looks like a five eighty, five map instead of a four before to me on how it's currently laid out but. Again. I really liked him I thought the mouse were good and maybe that's just me grading attempt to light modern warfare maps. I did not like any of the modern warfare. Along. Yeah I was GONNA say it doesn't a lot to be to modern warfare Matt.

But believe me since I know the steaks, my hands stay up I figure out how to get out of the car and I'm. Standing outside the car shaking. With? What seems like dozens of machine guns pointed at me. And dozens of MP's looking for. Whatever action they're going to see today. And the COP, the initial cop opens up the trump. He sees the lock box, he says. Where's the key show? Another key opens up. The locks still got my hands up. He sees there a gun and a clip. The clip is what the bullets are kept in and I say. Would my voice shaking, but just trying to get the sound out at sea. unloaded. It's totally legal. He says how do I know that this gun is unloaded? And say well. You see the clip right there. You see it's unloaded, he says. How do I know there's not one in the chamber. And? I said well You could pick it up and. Open it and look in the chamber, he says. I'm not touching your weapon. I don't know where he's going with this. Pick up the gun. And show me.

And that makes tears come out of my is. This is it. After a couple more times of him saying, pick up the gun. I say just take me to jail. S- take me to jail. I'm not touching the gun. I'm not touching the gun. Take me to jail. And I see. A look. Maybe. It's defeat something. Maybe, it's just contempt. In his eyes. As. He says get in the car.

"Ready to go government? Ideally would be launching this alongside the much our mobile phone APP because automating huge amounts of a contact tracing. It makes things a lot easier a lot quicker but the the APP isn't ready and we still we still haven't i. Don't think crazy me when I wrong but I still mean. We have a release date for this APP when people outside the white are going to be able to download put on their phones this is obviously the UK solution for getting out of it. Hope is that it will allow it not to have to resort. Draw sledgehammer option of the national lockdown in future. But instead they'll be able to say right. This particular suburb has a problem. So we're going to start closing down. Schools non essential retail there and knocking people down. And so you. Basically you limit the economic pain to the country. Because it's all is one particular place that is lockdown raw in the whole of the UK on that we don't have a specific day. I have to say when you mentioned the phone. Active some figures in government. You get people getting quite defensive. But I think that one's things I have had a few times star when fixing government trying to explain why there was not going to lean apple company. This is that the apposite ever essential when it comes to you and the system of testing trace in a way. I think they want to suggest it was the cherry on the cake icing on the cake but I think another thing though which has come back and it goes back to what something that came up at liaison committee say Boris Johnson was asked in various ways alternate. How do you get the public to go along with test and trace because ultimately we're entering a situation where you could get a cool and we told you need to south isolate for two weeks and people really going to do that? Might be in the shop and use little someone and someone says you now have to stay indoors for two weeks. Some on the committee were trying to. That's Dominic Cummings suggestion. That would make it even harder. But when you looking specifically at test and trace in the program when the things that they found from white study and and other research they're doing is people that much more likely according to their research to listen to instruction to stay at home for two weeks if they have someone on the phone telling them then if an a message an APP is also interesting that the on Katie's to the moral forty point that it's also going to be the. Nhs wants us to stay at home. They clearly think that that is we more affecting people to follow the advice. And saying the government or your local authority instructs you to say that it's GonNa be the. Nhs wants you to stay. We also marched on suppressed by Jeremy Hunt. On on the time it takes for test to come back I think was making the point. That should be forced is forty thousand. A moment should probably down to twenty four hours. How much do you think is linked to the test and trace program being successful? Obviously the longer you have to wait for the test results for less effective. It's GonNa be because the longer isn't and you can tell you can say right. That person has definitely got ours. We need track down where people that they'd been in contact with more than fifteen minutes. At a distance of less than two minutes. The part I was quite interesting that you can see abortions and almost missed going to need some. Yeah there's a talkative getting dance. Twenty four hours. Lemon Jeremy Hunt pressed for what the deadline of meeting that target was. Boris Johnson said. Oh no no I'm not. I'm not anymore deadlines on targets. I've been told not to do that. I mean you can you can you can tell over. His gums. Aim Not certain of when they will be able to hit that target. Katie we also the promise to get into maybe a slightly tough situation with Caroline nokes about the representation of women incidences of in terms of the movement. How do you think you manage that? Yes I think. This is where the premise and looked fairly uncomfortable. A it was a slight the funniest aspect to begin with because Caroline nokes Bros Johnson have history in the sense that she is one of the. Mp's he withdrew the whip from over brexit. And so I think there's little love lost there and then you had Carolina expressing the prime minister on a few different questions relating to gender initiative. He seemed to not quite have the answer to the first question. But I think the point when he the most uncomfortable really trying to think Kathleen about his words was when she went back to previous comments about having enough women in cabinet but you can have more and tried to get him to define how many women was enough at which point he seemed to try and backtrack and Jacob and then that creature a slightly awkward situation. Because everyone's agenda is actually very important. You shouldn't be laughing and I as far as we can tell. The promised was ended. The exchange by seven caroline next that she had the potential to be the that female prime minister the case had and so she quite go the answer. She wanted but she did get us something of a pep talk way to the committee. Thank you Katie. Thank you James. And thank you for Listening.

One of our panel has a single minute to demolish a treasured treasured article of faith than the other side this week is Alex is turn your lever argument is NPR seven of the people and they should just do as they're told so he pretty this hour invite levers work and I just say that bridget kind of covered it much better than I've written down so they go take right. There have been repeated accusations that this government is somehow stopped from implementing the program at once variously as Lee by the Yuba impeached by the law day remaining civil service by sabotage by evil judges et cetera fundamentally. There's only one thing that stops this government from behaving as if it had a majority Joyti and that is the fact that it failed to secure majority at the twenty seventeen election. Theresa may went to the people and said give me the power to drive this through in the way proposed opposes. The people replied no thanks. This election took place after their friend. Supremacy is absolute. This is the most current and only relevant will of the people. A Hung Parliament is voters saying we trust none of you. Absolutely we are instructing you to compromise the idea that her replacements elected by a minute and representative sample sample can just ignore that election reach further back to twenty sixteen in magically draw his instructions directly from one question advisory referendum a stupid stupid cynical and dangerous amazing. What was that one man. I was like fifty nine second fifteen now. Resignation Watch watch after we recorded last week. Show Johnson walked out reportedly reducing his brother to tears over the weekend. Amber Rudd finally realized that maybe you shouldn't have trusted Johnson after all this. This is tiny been a week yeah amazing right. This is the stuff that you would normally get in the dying days of a premiership. It's real. Let's like Bunka period it is it just happened to come. Five days was voted. How much damage I mean you mentioned that the Joe Johnson because I'm Ed Miller you know Ed milliband? There were still inevitable but people were still throwing. Oh you stopped your brother. In the box. Oversee people have blake brothers Rav big thing and the British psyche here and then number rod as well who we kind of with Clyde disappointed in I and then she kind of did sort of bond banner of sort of an exit interview. I think how much damage have these people may have genuinely sat down with Johnson and he told them that my my real objective is to get the deal and this is my strategy for doing it and they believed him and it became harder and harder to ignore the fact that in government they weren't doing anything toward the deal. I mean it's just expectation crashing into reality. It's nothing more nothing less will always on a real blue streak because they managed to jets in moderately including Churchill's grandson and the actual Duke of Wellington there and showing every sign of heading to the extremes so I wanted to ask. Is there any political asking this with the with the independent and in group. Is there any political future for those ejected. MP's do any of them have the personal brand or the right constituency. Do you think think to to Stanton wins an independent or are they all just gone. I mean that's the question I have actually for example. If the next election there is an election how how how to select. MP's is every local conservative association gains only select hardcore right-wing Tory MP's because presumably it's up to to them who they select now so I don't know but Immigra- choices show historically but you know they have chosen some of the MP's of left so that not every Tory Association is in agreement I presume with with what's happening in gum level so yeah so I'm asking the question. I'm asking basically but that's tossed again allowed. The skinny three worded exactly the same way the question. I always ask my insights into the Conservative Party are limited to I think I think it's hard to know and I think it will also depend and on the constituencies in question so were someone who's been injected from the Conservative Party to stand in a marginal seat that could be the difference between Labour or the Conservatives win on winning losing that seat so I think he might end without having that kind of impact. It's hard to know whether we're going through a period where party politics is being reset. We've had this before. It would have been a number of a false dawns in the run up to two thousand seventeen. It was widely predicted that we we'd seen the end of two potty. Politics is precisely the opposite in two thousand seventeen. That's not to say that that moment won't come again. It's it just feels so volatile. It's so hard to know where things will take us and you know. He said he and his only been a week. Since since I'm Baroud which resigned there have been so many events I think in the last year up to be the last six months where so many of those norms of being eroded why you know why one of those it was events alone in normal times would have been enough to finish off a government tip things over the edge. You had to estimate. Va lying to parliament more than once. She didn't actually chose. Actually she forced to resign over that show and he resigned over the BREXIT deal. She didn't like you know you've had It's almost hard to remember everything that's gone on in that time and each individual the event you would expect to be enough to finish off a government but it hasn't been and we just keep getting event after event but I think it's corrosive and I think the impact it has on the functioning functioning of government and on the public perception of politics and on our institutions and our democracy I think is is genuinely worrying if cabinet ministers can lie to department and that can be no consequence what does that mean for democracy and they really pushed out nothing good. I yeah so I don't know where I don't know wear any of those. This will take us. I I would imagine you know under a different leader and it's not inconceivable that there's a way back those people but it doesn't appear that there is any the attempt to bring those people back. I think it was a big mistake for the Conservative Party to have done that. That's their decision on what they can. They can do is as they choose but I think they underestimated the scale gala the rebellion they thought they could contain it by threatening those people and they found the actually those people were not prepared to be bullied so whatever might think about those people in terms of other policies they'll pursue. I would never disagree with MP's standing up and doing what they believe to be in the best interest of their country. That's what was so shocking. It was so stalinesque from from the people who have been accusing the other side of being dirty Marxists this this entire time I I was shocked. I was one of these. MP's he's was on on BBC news and they said that they suspended his entire highest staff from his constituency. One of whom was a local Tory councillor. It was a real sort of with no due process nothing they just literally sacked everyone one that had gone against them and all their friends well VIC does remove their attack lion really against Labor which was quite potent up to that appoint talk of diesel actions or yeah they just like. I mean nothing approaching this their single-mindedness in pursuing an exit on the third of October a no a no deal is completely pure. Now I think that this morning on the front of the express there was extremely I strongly advocate for is reaching out to voice Johnson fraud spotty painful saying we'll deal with you and and I think I've I've heard in conservative have rejected that out of hand which suggests so they're going to go full no deal in the manifesto for the next election. That's what I infer from that because otherwise do you think based on going no deal what it is but but I think they're not going to be there won't be seen to be doing a deal with the brexit party so they have to in order to not lose seats to the BREXIT. They will have to go no deal themselves without their help so the pact included terms the and and that was the bit of that wasn't on the front page say it wasn't just if you go for no deal will stand back the deal being offered was that if you support fully no deal no other option then we'll stand down for you and seats in the south and you pull back from seats in the North because the claim is the brexit parties is better positioned to win them from Labor and then effectively preparing to go into a coalition between the Tories and the bricks party and that's why the Tories I think said no ways is that happening..

"I'm Richard. We keeping told the Johnson is looking for creative solution to the backstop but outgoing minister amber rudd I will get to later basically said this was this was nonsense. Does do you believe that there is any kind of negotiation coming on or is it just Is it just a pretense. No I don't believe if there is any kind of real meaningful negotiation going on. I'd always believed that new deal would never happen under Theresa. May I thought it was just a a toxic toxic under Boris Johnson. I think the strategy has been deliberately to run down the clock to force US out without a deal to get an election before that period in order that either the conservative secure victory or alternatively which just pushed over the cliff with because the election date is moved which has been you know the reason that we haven't supported it. I'm having an October election because it'll be nothing to stop. The date of the election being shifted after the point at which an election has been called. I think voters are pretty good at sussing out whether they believe the motives of politicians and what they're arguing for and I think you look back to the twenty seventeen general election where you had a prime minister going into the election saying whole host of things about why the election was necessary and the voters decided actually they weren't entirely show that the election was necessary but also that the reasons given in the prime minister at that point Theresa May argue that she needed to have a strong negotiating hand to deal with Brexit. I mean that was a brexit election for all of about a week week and then we moved onto a whole host of things I see no reason to believe that general election now in similar circumstances wouldn't really be about brexit in any meaningful sense which I think Kinney's right that we try and resolve the issues around brexit. I believe in the form of a referendum before we then move onto a general election because general elections are rarely about single issues the rally but what politicians want to make them about. I'm in the number of things that happen. Gernot 2017 election campaign not least you know the terrorist attacks that we suffered in this country that very very quickly meant we were talking about the whole host of other issues not just about brexit and we had a general election was predicated on. Let's try and resolve brexit and it didn't do any of that didn't resolve brexit. We've had general election since the referendum so when Tori MP's will say you know you're not respecting the mandate and and so on we have actually had a big electoral event after that referendum in two thousand sixteen. It's you know it's a different parliament. A different set of people that did or didn't didn't vote to regard article fifteen taken a whole host of decisions after twenty seventeen. It's different people with a different mandate from their constituents who believe that they have to do the right thing and that yes we look to the 2016 referendum come referendums. There's no ignoring it but it's not the only thing that's happened since very close to the Tom Watson soon views not as he said today there'd be it needs to be a distinct thing that really happens before an election to unlock than having an election shen on normal election issues that make sense. I think Tom's absolutely right because you know in the course of a general election I would want to talk about a whole host all challenges that my community face whether it's the fact that fought in many people are still out of work that you know. I've seen a massive increase in the number of children in poverty law she because of universal credit our transport infrastructure is chronic chronic. I could go on and on about the challenges we face and I'm just not convinced that we would fully resolved brexit in those circumstances nor am I convinced it would actually get to talk about all of the other problems as we face as a country which means the fundamental problem with Brexit. Were not going to talk about any of the big challenges we face as a country because brexit's going to go on for at least the next decade and that means we can't solve child poverty or make sure that we're sorting adult social care or making sure that we got enough nurses and the NHL has all of that is going to just fall by the wayside as brexit drags on and and I think that's one of the key arguments that needs to be made in terms of trying to persuade people why we do need to just stay in the European Union move on talking about the things I do. You understand that argument. I'm a bit concerned thereby that Tom Watson idea because I if you have a referendum now before an election now this is arguable but frankly there isn't a mandate for it. Now we're talking about is whether you need that mandate and I'm not you one could argue that you don't but at the moment it's not that Labor didn't run under another election when during the last big apartment other than when when it lost had an election year so then even putting that to one side the numbers on their in parliament in order to get the referendum or be able to pass legislation nation on how you would hold the referendum without people being able to sort of sabotage so even if you get rid of the principal argument. You don't have a practical argument by that stage you sort of think. I don't see that that's ago. I see that it could be a guy with a changing debate within the Labour party to a better position. I think it works for that but in terms of actual position of having a referendum before and other election I justin see how the numbers still not fair because I look at the last vote in which the idea of a second referendum got the high number of very I totally wasn't the narrowest margin and I add a number of those twenty one tore impeach who have been thrown out of the party and wearing the cabinets at the time and couldn't vote on the issue and I I'm not sure they're still exactly the same you might the furthest edges be able to just a bowel and I didn't think you would just about squeak through a proposition for it to do it in order to pass legislation to get it through subject. Today I see it surviving I mostly I think that those new votes there's repertory and peas and the new Labour impis actually most dangerous in in the push for a for a deal if anything comes back when you look at what Neil Kinnock's just doing it Monday the biggest movement in the Commons right. Now who might now supports did if it came forward referendum. I don't see very little chatter about at at the moment and I think you need to have an election to lock up sure just finally just looked kind of pitiful next to leave. Radka doing rumblings handing these kind of bizarre sort of calisthenics like he wasn't from the camera in his usual just like only me stick but he did seem to be sort of under quite a lot of of pressure and there seems to be this feeling that he's hired Dominic Cummings to be as attack dog. The attack dog has now mauling him and he's basically being forced somebody who basically likes to be liked the whole thing about Boris Johnson. It's just like you may not agree with everything but I'm a good guy and he's being made to do things which make him very much not a good guy and sort of standing out sort of threatening to dislike. Maybe I'll go to jail for ignoring the law do you think Ingrid that he has sort of become something of a sort of hostage to his adviser. That was interesting that was when when he was sitting next to live raccoon on an extra on the podium next to him and he's sort of things. W- it yeah like stretching of his chest and it wasn't for me that seemed like a classic Macho Maneuver. It's almost like I'm not really even listening. I'm not that bothered. I'm humbled by I've got time to do exercise in the same way. It's just a complete lack of pricey. The lack of respect to the person that is standing next to you and talking he was supposed to be actually listen to answer giving giving respect by maintaining the only cow contacts or whatever and it reminded me of Jacob smoggy in Coleman's prostrating himself on the bench in a in a manner that I found genuinely disgusting actually and I was talking to my dad last night's and he's heated in Germany German and he's. I've been watching everything that's been going on in live parliamentary television in Germany every talk show at the moment. Every every news item is about brexit people as obsessed with almost mrs we are and he said I said. Do you have that in house. Apartment is that behavior that you would recognize it would they do the Bundestag for example and he's an absolutely not and on and that is it is embarrassing what happened on Monday night. I could barely watch I watched all twenty five thousand dollars but I felt sick because because the behavior and again it comes from that sort of not knowing not prising where you are not understanding the job job you have is incredibly important and very lucky to have it and it's it's a it's a position of state and to behave in that way absolutely disgusting and I'm embarrassed about it and so for me John Sort of fossil charming ca fossil is despicable and I you know yet another reason why I was on my members of the toy party because it doesn't it shouldn't he's the leader of our country for God's sakes stand next to the stand up stand up straight and and I you think in in a very real way that's their undoing actually because they have put all their eggs in one electoral basket. They've said it doesn't matter if we lose seats. It's in London doesn't matter if we leave seats in the south doesn't matter if who leads seats in Scotland because we're GonNa win those northern seats and let me tell you Jacob rees-mogg blind down like that will be the poster that goes up in the north and the fact that he's brother resigned people may not pay attention to the details details but there's something really deeply ingrained in in northern Labor voters that you can't trust the Tories and you add on top of that Boris the fact that not even his own family trusts him and that sort of thing does have cut through cut through and I don't think they will convert enough traditional traditional Labour voters over to their cause in order to make up for the losses they will suffer in the south in Scotland. They just went to it..

"Why is there so much fury at elites in such a world of part of the country, because we're often told that the Brexit vote was really about austerity and people being hacked off and just wanting to change the sacred change. But these are people who won't be susceptible to that kind of argument. What's the what's the explanation? The lead thirteen my constituency falls into two distinct sections. Although it is a very wealthy area. You've got to understand, is pervasively conservative with us mall. See it has lots of people who would be described as self employed conservatives, what well dismissively treated by some labor, MP's, white van, man, but actually very good people who are earning their keep them feel independently minded. So some of the support for Brexit undoubtedly and you could see how it panned out in the different areas, depending on on wealth were in those areas. But it's also right to say that the requires a lot of retired people who are wealthy in my constituency who believe in Brexit for these patriotic almost atavistic reasons. Sometimes accompanied by germanophobia. You get quite a lot of that in the in the mail bag, and an expression of national idea. Entity in the face of globalization and immigration on TV played a very major part, although the area is clearly, a massive beneficiary from regression this obvious. Anybody else I have a very big South Asian community. Most of whom are very wealthy. I've done very well. Also, we have large numbers of people who come into work in the services sector, particularly in care homes, who come out of London to work in the daytime when the commuters go back in, you have to stand on the platform, you can watch all these people come out and the difference between the people who are traveling, where dependent on. But for all that this was voted on for these very fundamental reasons. Now, I think it's important not to exaggerate. I suspect some of these trends were latent within my association from people who are not activists. I think that was the most marked phenomenon because they're not activists. They pay the subscription, they turn up to select the MP, and then largely they leave them alone on this. They come along with a personal problem. All can you bump into them and say I've been a member of the association for forty years? And you think how interesting, I know. I did this person was a member of the but they not necessarily very heavily into the new also of day-to-day politics, what's going on in that scenario entitlement? But my impression is that they were there. And it's they particularly some of them we don't know twelve hundred members. I have no. All I know at the moment. It has twelve hundred members. There were hundred eighty two who voted against me at a annual general meeting. So I don't know whether that is the majority of the association, I don't know, whether it's in fact, minority who are very vociferous. I have no means of knowing annoys anybody else. But they are there and they all present, and they are very upset, and the longer Brexit has gone on the more, they've sense, a failure of Brexit. They will leave voters the more upset. They become an internet. There has been a certain amount of entry. It's very difficult to quantify. Because in one case it is a Yuki activist is to the gains me for you keeping twenty seventeen and it's quite clear from the emails. He was sending out in the immediate run-up to the association AGM that he would decided to take his Yuki back to zoom into the conservative party. He would argue that he's a good conservative, and it's just the time a bad conservative, and he's entitled to do it. I mean that that's, that's his argument. And there are undoubtedly people who have been attracted into joining the conservative party since the referendum, who were you kit food before in did conservative party has marketed itself to you kit voters to come and join and as long as you are not an activist and as long as you don't vote for another party, which then does gently raise the question of what some of my satiated members were doing two weeks ago. Then you are a member of the association and you're entitled to come alone. So that's why this is happening. It's not unique..

I think it was he Merriman say Nick, don't do this something along those lines. It didn't work. I think that was known the Nichols frustrated at the way Brexit's paying want to wanted to passionately stop an ideal Brexit and felt let down and he said, basically reason he had to quit his party over this was because he it was conservative MP's fading to compromise. You want to add into this that Nichols readymade facing deflection. Frats and Judy or Smith and fellow government figures stepped in before say, even though he had been de-selected by his leg depositi. He could stay in. So I don't think he was had over half position aside from tonight's vote that sad. Do you think it could be a sign of things to come? If the government try it does try. Reconsider her Shing for a no deal. Brexit ovary various options like that. Because he's the only MP usurp host that that it might get too much. The James even if more 'em piece. Join I mean, looking at it from the independent groups perspective, surely this is a sort of desillusion MP that they would like to get on. This is Nick Bowes tonight said that he would stand as a Progressive Conservative as an independent Progressive Conservative, not joining the independent groom necessarily because it's worth noting the independent group didn't vote for his cO market two point proposal because they want a second referendum. So they are as guilty of the failures compromise. As his former colleagues were the both was obviously, I mean, Katie is ROY. And that is a reminder. If the government's ROY house Commons agree on vote for our throat agreement so easy things to leave. Our dale. Ailing countries may is going to be I think there would be a huge slew cabinet resignations. If you did.

"They'd finally gathered letters from forty eight MP's fifteen percent of the conservative party's Westminster base enough to trigger a vote of confidence in my leadership of the conservative party.

This was the nineteen. In Twenty-two committee. It's an arcane name for a grouping of conservative MP's who aren't on the government payroll. They held Theresa May's future in the hands. It's there the PC's maze. Thought to have promised to step down before the next general election, ju in twenty twenty two critics say she didn't rule out staying on if that election came sooner. But it seems she'd done enough to save yourself the number of those cast in favor of having competence in tourism.

"And can you give me a sense of his place in the conservative party? How how important is he he's important conservative MP? Tony Clement has been a staple of Tory politics for the better part of three decades. Definitely one of the more recognizable people in the party. He's run for the leadership twice unsuccessfully. Once in the last round, he ended up withdrawing because he couldn't kind of meet his fundraising targets, and then he ran back in the early days. He's held under prime minister Harper he held like fairly substantial cabinet pro royals, including I think he was minister of health minister of industry and president of the treasury board. He also ran for the provincial leadership the the PC party leadership years ago, and he was in government there, and he served like a myriad of ministerial portfolios. They're like health in transport, and I think he served under both my cares and Ernie's so he has had a long political. Career. He is. I mean, he's not the most prominent of all conservative MP's. But he is I would say like a recognizable face with the conservative party. And I can honestly say nobody would have seen this coming, and I should correct that nobody in the political arena because there are a lot of people on Twitter saying, oh, yeah. Big surprise. Like, he message me all the time. But honestly, the reaction around the newsroom, and everyone who was contacting each other as it came out among the political parties was really Tony comment. Like, he just he didn't come across that way. Sure. He was in scramming lot and doing things along those veins in that vein. But I don't think people really would have seen something to this degree. We heard from conservative Andrew Scheer on Tony Clemenza position to step back from a lot of his duties sheer called it a terrible apps in judgment. But also he said he was encouraged that Tony had decided to seek help. And that he wished him all the best in doing. So Gino journey more about what this help might be. No. That's what's so weird about this whole story is I've reached out to Tony Clemente uh. I I have not heard back. But I I don't know what help you need to. I'm not really sure is it marriage counseling is that. I don't know what treatment, you know, combat the idea of sending sending videos of yourself laying. I that connection has not been made by the conservative party or Tony Clement at this point. And I think as we move forward that becomes a big question to my understanding is he'll be gone for months. So I don't know what that treatment consists of and when he comes back, you know, what will he say about that? And what's the? The goal of the treatment not to send pictures anymore. Or is it? I mean, if you're undergoing marriage counselor or something along those lines like that makes sense, but they're not they have not been clear about that. Thank you so much. Okay. Thanks so much for having me. After she, and I spoke there were some dates to the story on Wednesday. Tony Clement left the conservative caucus at the request of opposition leader intra share. So he's no longer part of the conservative party right now. But he still remains an MP in a scrum. The conservative leader, explained wise. That this was an isolated incident since then there have been numerous reports of of other infants allegations. So in that in that respect, I've asked Tony to resigned from caucus you can respond to. And then in an Email to the global mail, Mr. Coleman acknowledged numerous interactions with individuals on social media, but he denied any harassing behavior.
