Mark Levin Pays Homage to Historian Paul Johnson
"A great historian passed away By the name of Paul Johnson They truly great historian It was British but he wrote a fantastic book about American history About Jewish history world history the guy was absolutely brilliant I think he wrote like 40 books maybe more When he was very young he started out as a leftist slowly began to move more conservative and then when he saw what the trade unions were doing in Britain particularly in London and shutting down the entire country and their industries and all And then when he saw what Margaret Thatcher did to break the nation's hold from the blackmailer was taking place over there and how she turned things around He moved to the conservative camp But he was a fantastic writer and historian He was 94 and I just wanted to mention it because certainly one of my favorite Paul Johnson passed away Now here's a man alive 94 years and 90 9% of the public's never heard of before It's the way it goes

With Warnock's win, Biden will become the first U.S. president since the 1930s to have every senator in his party who sought reelection to win. In the UK, Russia sunak has agreed to end the effective ban on new onshore wind farms. It's the second major climb down in two days as the prime minister faces a rebellion among conservative MPs, Bloomberg's UN pots has more. New onshore wind farms have effectively been banned in England for some years, but now in a second major climb down in as many days, the government has agreed to change its policy amid pressure from conservative backbenchers. The department for leveling up has announced a consultation on letting local communities decide whether they want new wind farms built in their areas. The move is expected to remove a requirement for turbines to be pre designated in local plans. Menaces will also look at a lamb and communities to host wind farms to gain from lower energy bills. The U turn comes just a day after the government backed down on mandatory house building targets in London, I'm you in part split in big day break Europe. UK house prices are falling at the sharpest pace in 14 years, Halifax's November house prices index is down 2.3%. The third month of consecutive drops. The findings add to evidence that housing market, the housing market in the UK, maybe headed into a more protracted downturn. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon says smaller banker bonuses and potential job cuts shouldn't come as a surprise given the economic outlook. Speaking exclusively to Bloomberg, he says the investment bank is getting more cautious. We're at a very uncertain time and uncertain time given we're changing monetary and economic conditions very, very quickly. And that's certainly having an impact of slowing down economic activity. And so if you're running a big financial services firm, I think you have to assume that we have some bumpy times ahead. We could see a recession in 2023 also. And so I think you've got to be cautious and prepare. Goldman isn't the only major bank worried Bloomberg has learned that Morgan Stanley would reduce its global workforce by about 2% or 1600 jobs. That's as Wall Street prepares for a potential recession in the United States. Now Tom, there's a couple of things I want to draw your attention to this morning and they both are about the UK strikes, this advent calendar of strikes that were having here in the UK. It's the biggest wave of strike action since Margaret Thatcher was in power in 1989, and there's an interesting note from Berenberg's Callum Pickering this morning. He says, don't worry, it's not back to the 1970s because unions are weaker now, but also it isn't a wage price spiral. It's actually a price wage spiral. But we've also got a piece on the terminal from my colleague Philip Aldrich, senior economics reporter here at Bloomberg. And he has spoken to various economists who warn actually that the government is fighting a losing battle with the union as they need to settle it soon because if they don't, it's not going to be a winter of discontent. It's going to be a year of discontent. That's the warning from the former Bank of England policymaker Charles goodhart. How do the politics play into this then? I mean, you know, you've got your finger on the pulse of UK politics. There's the front page story in the FT that sunac is under pressure to kind of legislate around union activity. How realistic is that and what would that legislation look like? Well, if you look at the story in the FT, it also says that the polling suggests that the share of people who think that the unions play a negative role has increased and that a third of people actually back that tougher restrictions that you're talking about on strike action. So perhaps the more people who are directly impacted by this disruption, the more the wave of public opinion shifts. Okay, so from the strike action to one of the best red stories and really just fantastic reporting for them from the Bloomberg team around what is now described by them, at least by their reporting, one of the richest, if not the richest family in the world, the secretive golf families $300 billion fortune. And it's about a lot more than oil. That is the Bloomberg big take very well read and talking about the investments by this Abu Dhabi family, royal family, of course, in the likes of Manchester City, the football club, but also Elon Musk's SpaceX. It's a remarkable read. And Rihanna's lingerie line don't forget. I thought I'd leave that one to you. Fascinating graphics as well. Definitely worth a read that big take on the terminal now. Now, with China easing its COVID restrictions, traders are wondering how far they price in a COVID recovery. It comes as the economic superpowers exports and imports both contracted at steeper paces in November on the back of COVID disruptions. So should we be optimistic or should we be pessimistic about 2023? Well, joining us now is our global trades are Brendan Murray and our UK markets anchor with us all week pretty Gupta, Brendan. Let's start with you. The China data out overnight. What does it tell us? How bad are things looking? Well, it looks a lot worse than some people expected. If you remember a year ago, American ports, European ports were jammed with ships with goods flowing in. Now at 12 months later, we're looking at pretty much the opposite situation demand is drying up quickly and China obviously relies a

Our team is committed to bringing you voices within this crisis and there's none on policy and economics more competent in this world than Michael Spence, the laureate of Stanford, New York University, unicorn, chairman of general annex global growth institute. Professor Spence, thank you so much for joining us this morning. I want to go to another time and place in your ute when you were studying what John hicks long ago. Let us come folks to 1981 and William greider's classic the Atlantic essay on a very young David stockman. The whole thing is premised on faith, the inflation premium melts away like the morning mist, a great battle over the conventional theories of economic performance. David stockman in the middle of rake economics. Michael Spence, the tumult of the last 48 hours seems like a reaganomics redux. Is it? It looks like at Tom, but I actually don't think it is. So both Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher were dealing with a situation in which you had embedded inflation, but also, you know, kind of stagflation pattern, a low growth. And they were basically trying to remove the constraints and obstacles to higher rates of growth. That meant cutting back government. And cutting back, you know, unfortunate and dysfunctional regulation. I think this is a completely different situation. We've lived in the liberated economics world for a long time, and we're actually going a different direction. So. Policies are always context specific, but I don't think this is analogous to that situation. So then what situation is this? What is the policy prescription for the United Kingdom are quite frankly China or any others? What is the new Spence prescription? Well, it starts with recognizing that for a whole variety of reasons. We have quite suddenly shifted into a supply constrained world. So growth strategies based on expanding demand, don't make any sense. I mean, I think that's the core of the mistake that's been made in the UK. You just don't cut taxes. If the supply side can't respond, especially if you're fighting the Central Bank, who's trying to get nearly out of control inflation back under control. And then at that, you know, I think you have to face the fact that in the short run, we don't have any choice. The supply side agenda that we really need, you know, reversing the productivity trends isn't going to happen overnight. So the central banks, we were a little late to the game, but in an awkward position, just have to deal with the inflation thing by trimming back the demand side, as best they can. And as delicately as they can. But then the rest of the agenda should be focused on real supply side constraints, both domestic and global. And there are a lot of them. Aging populations, you know, fading deflationary pressures from the emerging economies, diversification and global supply chains, the energy transition in Europe. I mean, the list is very long, and I won't bore you with the whole thing, but that's the situation that we have to bottom line is we need a productivity search. Without that, or to get there, there is also an issue with, how do you fiscally arrange a situation where deficits are not easy to finance anymore? How concerned are you about the inability of a lot of nations to finance some of the developments required to increase productivity, required to increase growth in the face of inflation that is persistent? I'm very worried. I mean, you know, one of the other sort of constraints that you talked about before, Lisa, was the rising levels of sovereign debt. You know, when a rising inflationary environment, you know, then that in many countries, maybe the United States is uniquely an exception. Places fairly severe constraints on the kinds of investments that form a portion of sensible growth strategies. Supply side oriented growth strategies of the type that we, you know, the bills we passed recently in the U.S.. So I think that's essentially a reason why we may not be able to dig our way out of this whole all at fast. Well, recent writings on investments are I'm going to assume the Chad Jones Berkeley to Stanford was a Michael Spence disciple. He's got the definitive book on post solo productivity, and that's all great. But the answer is we need capital deepening. How do we do that? Well, I mean, you make sensible choices. So the first thing you do is you don't do is cut revenues, right? I mean, you know, if we're going to get out of this, we all have to pay a price. The politicians have a tough job convincing people that's right. But basically, you know, we have to finance the investments we need to get out of this and that means probably. Some, at least holding fast on the tax situation, if not increasing them. Michael Spence, thank you so much and honor to have you with us today from always Stanford and New York University and great Atlantic as well coming to us from Italy today. Lisa, I really can't say enough about how every research note from smart crew comes back to something we don't want to talk about, which is the complexities of productivity. Peter book publishes moments ago, echoing what we heard from professor Spence. This is a difficult moment, and it is not an over exaggeration to say it is a sea change. It is an inflection point. This is a new era where fiscal policy can not have the same effect and monetary policy can not have the same effect as it's had in the past. It's very difficult when suddenly the policy prescription, the knee jerk policy prescription of the past, does not work. It's counterproductive even at this point because inflation suddenly has reared its head in a way that people have not seen for generations. It's times are just so, so unusual in the blur of the screen and it's a screen with a certain frenzy to it within this crisis they Lisa, I continue to go to pound Sterling one O 8 80 a little bit of a lift of pound in the last 20 minutes, not that that matters, but that's my observation. And how much is this a dollar story? We've been talking about this, right? People pointing fingers at the UK's policy prescription on the political side as the culprit behind this, how much are they really leading the way in terms of what other governments can expect, perhaps the more extreme version. But if you're trying to juice growth, it is not easy to do so. It is not cheap. And that is the reason why Michael Spence was saying he's very concerned that we're not going to dig our way out of this hole for quite a while, which kind of goes the whole lost decade of profits kind of question. Well, then I'll say 20 minutes earlier this morning, a research shot from Ellen zanten suggesting that Morgan Stanley, we are distant from dollar excess in a Plaza like accord in kit jukes at the same time sending saying son of Plaza's yearly so that is a kind of tension that's out there. And right now, the administration of President Biden has come out and said, there's no need. Because right now, the strong dollar is helping bring down inflation. So what's the real motivation there to offset that? Claims done and show a fully employed America, I believe, futures at negative 46 of vix was out two figures, 31.92, stay with us.

"Time now for a Bloomberg business flash and European equity markets are rebounded a little from yesterday's session. Certainly in the London market where we were down 8 tenths of a percent or so yesterday today up by four tenths of a percent, the cacao and the zodiacs make more modest gains the Dax fairly flat. Now, after initially bouncing a little bit U.S. futures have moderated. And in fact, we're seeing some positivity, but now look to be under pressure, so U.S. futures down by a tenth of a percent this morning E mini's down futures and NASDAQ futures all down by that kind of margin. MSCI Asia Pacific made some gains up by just over 1% on the Asia session, the day before had been dominated by concerns around higher commodity prices and around Chinese growth. Well, today, some of the rising commodity prices has, again, moderated, and that has allowed some room for appetite for risk assets earlier on in global trading. So the Brent price at 88 51 up by 6 cents of 1%, but that was after we saw WTI dropped by around 6% in yesterday's session again concern around global growth concern around lockdown in China, that still something the market is dealing with. The dollar much more stable but stable at very strong levels historically, of course, the dollar yen looks much more stable, but again, at yen weakness, so one four three is where we trade on dollar yen, the Euro at zero spot 9 9 8 5 down two tenths of 1% as we work towards an ECB meeting where the expectation is a jumbo, quote unquote, hike of 75 basis points, and the pound is down by four tenths of 1%, one 1489 is where we trade on cable as we don't recover, in fact, from those lows we haven't seen since 1985 yesterday at previously those levels we got to under Margaret Thatcher, of course, now under prime minister Liz trust.

"Economists led by Jan hatzius expect the fed to raise rates 75 basis points this month, 50 basis points in November. The ECB is likely, although not certain to increase rates by 75 basis points today, according to market expectations, the European Central Bank last raised its key rate by three quarters of a percentage point in 1999. The odds of a 75 basis point Nat move now at about 65% according to swaps tied to the meeting, our chief rates correspondent Garfield Reynolds says the Euro could look very sick if the ECB ops for less than 75. The kind of the key for a lot of central banks is precisely that with the fed leading the way, if they don't stick with outsized hikes or in the ECB's case carry out a few more, they risk their currencies dropping a lot. And that in and of itself will fuel inflation pressures. Bloomberg's chief rights correspondent Garfield Reynolds speaking to us a little earlier, that decision from the European Central Bank to at one 15 London time today. Well, on Liz truss's first full day in office prime minister, the pound hit a low not seen since Margaret Thatcher was in power, Sterling fell to a dollar 14 on Wednesday the lowest level since 1985 and down 15% since the start of the year. Malachi policy committee member Catherine Mann, warned MPs yesterday that inflation is becoming embedded. The short term inflation that fueled in particular has talked about and others, the energy price inflation. It's very real. It's very salient to households. It's very important for business. Those short term inflation spikes are becoming increasingly embedded in domestic, more domestic oriented prices. That was NPC member Catherine Mann speaking to the treasury select committee. The latest figures on job vacancies could be an early sign of that slowing economic growth. They grew in August at the slowest pace in 18 months according to KPMG and the recruitment and employment confederation. Well, let's say in the UK, there's trust set to make her first major policy announcement later with a plan to tackle soaring energy bills, the package could see the government spend as much as 200 billion pounds over the next 18 months to cap prices.

And that can't be right. Rebecca, a question about female leadership, which is an issue close to my heart. Third female prime minister, third female conservative prime minister Margaret Thatcher Theresa May now list trust, they have fewer female MPs on the conservative side than labor does. I mean, come on, does labor not need a female leader? I'm sure you'll be with me on this cry. Well, I thought so, but obviously other people didn't but you know what I'm saying? Indeed. Are you surprised are you surprised that given the economic challenges facing this country, Rebecca, that labor aren't polling better? Okay, you got a ten, a ten point lead, but given everything that this country is facing, you must be slightly disappointed that you're not doing better. I think we've got a significant power lead at the moment and that's not to be sniffed at. But I think if we're going to keep that pollie going at hope that it labor conference will now start to set out some very detailed long-term policies. The shorts are in policies are very much needed, but we need to set out a vision of what the country will look like under a labor government. And as I said earlier, that requires a huge emphasis on industrial strategy, real leveling, not the leveling up that's been abdicated by the Conservative Party and also setting out how that by growing that economy and developing that industrial strategy so that we're competing with leading industrial nations around the world. We're not at the moment. In fact, on research and development, I think we're aiming for 2.4% other countries are at 3% of their GDP when it comes to we're aiming for 2.4% other countries are at 3% of their GDP when it comes to research and development. We need to really up our game and I'm sure we'll certainly do that as the months go on within the Labor Party and we'll see some exciting things coming out. Okay, let's see yes how party conference season develops not far off Rebecca long Bailey, my thanks to the former shadow Secretary of State for business energy and industrial strategy current labor MP. I mean, nationalization, re nationalization of energy, companies, has long been in the stomping ground of the Labor Party that work closer to that than perhaps we've ever been in the past certainly in Europe we have been, but very interesting to get Rebecca's views.

"Operating companies are intent on what they call them, which effectively would be slimming down the workforce, probably because of poultry drug codes, but the unions don't want to see this happen, there's also a plan shape up in peak hours because people are traveling at different times of the day. Those people that have gleefully returned to work are very often, as we know, drifting in mid morning and so on. That doesn't fit with the timetables that train companies have been operating and they need to be negotiate all of this with the unions. I'm so crazy I never someone who drifts in mid morning. I'm sure. There is other also strike action though happening. This isn't just the railways. There are other sectors too, which are also looking at walkouts. Absolutely, in fact, we saw campaign launch and that's nice enough it's enough. Which is involved in very few new leaders, including those who transport sector and seeking to promote the idea that there is some form of common approach to this. There can be no coordinated action between sectors because of union laws introduced under Margaret Thatcher, but nevertheless, we seem to be moving towards a situation where there's a strike at least every other day at one point or another. The royal male workers in particular are due to stage the first of four day strikes next week. That's a 115,000 postal workers. So we can expect to see disruption to the postal system for that from that. And then we've got the force that the major strike at

"He could constitutionally do these things. I don't think he will. But I thought he would have stood down after the vote in no confidence because every other one of his predecessors. Margaret Thatcher, Margaret Thatcher, if you remember, Michael heseltine stood against her in a leadership election, and she won. She just didn't win by enough, and so she stood down and resigned as party leader and ultimately as prime minister. That's the model that ordinary people would follow. Comparing ordinary people and Margaret Thatcher. But he hasn't done that. So who knows? There's still time for him to throw some of the curve ball. So I mean, I've seen a lot of speculation about this, but to your mind, after we go through this process, however long it takes, who is likely to be next and is there any will there be any effects on actual policy assuming that there's not another election? Is the British government going to do something else? And who's going to be the next prime minister? I hate that question. A few years ago, when Theresa May stood down, there's a ready short list. When David Cameron stood down, there was a ready short list. The conservatives have been in government now for 12 years. And the knock on effect this has is anybody who is considered an a lister. Anybody who's on the front bench. They've been in government long enough. They've been ministers long enough where they've had to make some unpopular decisions and they've alienated people. Not only people in the who vote against the conservatives, but they alienate people who support the conservatives for some of their policy choices. And so whereas in the past, you could see, well, even two years ago, Rishi sunak, the departed Chancellor of the exchequer. He was very popular. People thought he was going to be the next leader. And then he made some decisions in, I think, was the autumn statement, not a budget, but kind of a Proto budget. This is what the budget is going to look like in 6 months time. That was all about raising taxes, cutting spending. And raising taxes is not something that makes Conservative Party members very happy. And so his star faded quite a bit. Michael gove, same could be said about him, especially his duration as education minister. He only needed all the teachers. And so it's really difficult to find somebody who's going to lead the party who hasn't been somehow damaged within the party itself. And so this is why what I'm thinking will happen. It's going to be somebody we haven't heard of. The way it works is the parliamentary Conservative Party will whittle down the list to two, and then those two will be presented to the conservative membership and there's about a 100,000 Conservative Party members in the country who will make that decision. But I really think it's going to be somebody who we really haven't heard of. Again, much like when Thatcher stood down, people were looking at the Michael hesitancy in the tug was heard to the world. Nobody had heard of John Major. He came out of nowhere. Yeah, he had been Chancellor for 25 minutes or something like that. But the point being, he hadn't been in government long enough to alienate people. And so I honestly, I don't know an answer to that question in terms of policy. Again, it depends.

"Daily mail is also gone pretty hard with their headline. It goes big on the story saying it threatens to revive the pest minster Rao about political sleeves we have heard about this in the Tory party of late to buy elections really happened because of Tory sleeves, but Boris Johnson's deputy chief whip Chris pincher has now resigned as the chief whip, but it's important to know that he's still an MP and this is after being accused of drunkenly groping two men. He has written to the prime minister Boris Johnson saying he's extremely embarrassed and he drunk far too much on Wednesday evening at a conservative private members club, which is in central London. And as I did mention, still empty of tanworth, but there's now a mounting pressure on Boris Johnson to throw him out of the party. Okay, so that in the politics. What about this for tax? I mean, we know that it's really starting to bite, but a record number of Britons are to pay a higher tax rate. Yeah, Caroline, you are right. It is really starting to bite and I'm sure lots of us are feeling it and this story is in the Financial Times really about income tax, where she sunak and inflation, so they would go three big things there. One in 5 taxpayers are soon expected to be paying the 40 to 45% tax right after Rishi sunak froze income tax thresholds until 2026, so about 43 million people were paying this percent when Boris Johnson became the prime minister in 2019. This year it's expected to rise to a record 6.1 million so that means nearly 2 million people have been dragged into a higher income tax bracket since the last election because this freeze on tax and also because of inflation. Yeah, so from 4.3 million people to 6.1 million people in terms of taxpayers so that's you're seeing quite a big, big jump in those figures. Get Leon turning next to The Guardian and a story about more strikes. Yeah, indeed, BT star vote for first national strike in 35 years is the headline there and tens of thousands of BT workers are to walk out in a national strike. Now this is for the first time since being privatized and a Margaret Thatcher. I know we just have the Richard Nixon in the market, so I've gone with that again, this is really following a row overpay, some 30,000 workers are open reach and 9000 call center staff have voted to strike in what's been described as an unjust and unsustainable wage deal. So they have been offered 5%, but they want an 8% increase. And I just want to add one of the little story that I've seen, and I want you all to do this for me tonight. The national lottery is still waiting for the winner of its 7 million pound jackpot to come forward. It's understood the lucky ticket was bought and Wolverhampton before the lotto prize was run in the jaw on June 18th. So if you live in Wolverhampton or anyone else quickly check behind your sofa. That I love that that's a very Friday story. Yeah, it's a great story isn't it? Yeah. And also the Margaret Thatcher references in the Richard Nixon references. I just want to put it out there. So we spoke to the city economist roger brutal yesterday, of course, is very well known chairman of capital economics. And he was saying, he was very critical of the Bank of England saying, look, even the Bank of England monetary policy committee doesn't know enough isn't familiar enough with the 1970s. So I like the reference, but yeah, I put it out there. So you understand the history of the 7 seats. I mean, summer of discontent winter is content. There seems to be a lot of references about the 70s at the moment and how lots of us don't know what it was like to live in high inflation times, but they are definitely reminding us now.

"On the throne. I think it just comes back to the whole idea of patriarchy, so I was having this conversation with my colleague the other day and they were quoting some book about the world where there isn't there are no men and it's just women and the women create their society, but the society is just as hierarchical and corrupt and awful as it would have been with the men and it's because they've inherited the patriarchy. They have been ruined. By it. And this conversation about Victoria and Margaret Thatcher and these women in power, it does make you think that, yes, they've reached the Pinnacle of that a woman can get to and yet they're still bound by the chains of the patriarchy. It's kind of sad. It is sad. It is sad. One day. And I think it goes back to the absolute power corrupts absolutely kind of saying of, you know, even if we were not programmed with patriarchy, if it had been women who rose instead of men, would things really be different or is the cycle just is it inevitable with whoever is in power seeks to suppress those who are not regardless of gender or status or anything like that. Which is kind of sad thought. So obviously when we've read an excellent fairytale retelling like malice and misrule, we get to the end and they say, well, that's great. And there are so many more fairytales we would really like to see you tackles. So is your next project going to be fairytale related or are you stepping away from it and trying something a little different? Yeah, I don't know that I'm ever going to be able to step away from fairytales. And I truly, if authors have brands, I truly hope that villains and fairytales and retellings are kind of my brand. But I do have my next project. It is sold in the U.S. right now. I'm not sure if it's going to come out in the UK or not, but it sold in the U.S. and the first book is titled crimson crown. And it's slated for publication in 2024. It is Snow White, and it is the retelling of the rise of the evil Queen in Snow White, and I have kind of mashed it up with the tudors and the rise of Anne Boleyn. And so I am super duper excited about to be able to share that one. It's kind of takes place in this tutor inspired world in which is at one time hunted a persecuted and then they rose to an alliance with a new line of kings and then the old religious faction that used to be in power kind of climbing the climbs their way back up to power and which is our hunted and persecuted again..
Patriot Academy Founders Discuss Ronald Reagan's Inspiring Last Speech
"Of the patriot academy, Rick green, and their spokesman colonel Allen west. You just referenced Reagan's famous speech, the point du hawk speech, which he gave in Normandy, was at an 87, 86. I can't remember when he gave that before. 84. Okay, but you said, oh, I'm sorry, of course, because it was the anniversary of D-Day. Okay, but you said that you heard Reagan speak more recently and they played clips from that great speech. This was 94 and it was the last public speaker who gave on his birthday. And we're waiting on he and Margaret Thatcher to come out and they're playing those speeches on the screen. And I'm watching that speech is a 22 year old and the guy sitting next to me we brought with us from Athens, Texas, name is George McCormick. He was a bomber pilot in World War II, great American great patriot. And as I'm watching the speech, I realize I look over mister McCormick, he's bawling. I mean, literally tears running down his eyes, we're all sitting there in our tuxedos because Reagan's taking him back to those days of sacrifice. And then I realized, wait a minute, this guy is the first time in my life it's real. This guy was willing to go around the world and die. So the two generations later I could sit here and be free. So kind of like I feel when I'm sitting next to colonel west, the people that were willing to die for my freedom, how do I honor that? Well, I honor it the way Lincoln said to honor it by having an increased devotion to the cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion. So it was really that night sitting next to mister McCormick, I said, I want to become a student of freedom, want to know how we got it, how we protect it. And most importantly, how do we pass it as Alan said to the next generation? How do we make sure the torch is intact when we hand it to them and that we train them on how to be free. And so then

"And I really don't think we should get bogged down in vitriol on this because there's a lot of middle ground in this okay I mean obviously as I mentioned in the beginning of the show as discussed about Israel often you know if Israel stopped fighting tomorrow they'd be obliterated If the Palestinians stopped fighting their BPs The same thing applies to Russia and Ukraine right now Putin is clearly the aggressor in this situation regardless of what you feel our involvement should be Sure I mean I think a lot of the disagreement on the right stems from being played an unideal hand for so many years What do you do now And to me it all gets back to the fact that the whole nostalgia of the Soviet Union and defending Eastern Europe from the Soviet Union back in the days of Pope John Paul Margaret Thatcher Ronald Reagan that's predicated on a moral and just west United States government NATO government We have so many problems here at home with governments that are no longer democracies Reagan used to quip about you can go to the Oval Office and say breaking sucks as president and you could go to Gorbachev and say Reagan sexist person and get away with it That's good And I played that on my show recently and I was thinking it's so sad to look at Trudeau and gradually what's happening here with DHS monitoring opposition people being thrown in jail for political crimes without bail we have our problems here so that's why a lot of us have a difficult time barreling in headfirst to a foreign conflict before we even get into the details just because NATO is corrupt The United States government I hate to say has a lot of problems with it So we're not going to be able to sustain the proper policy
Comparing the American and British Systems of Government
"The American system of government is unique in many respects, the founders thought of it as a nervous order, seclorum, a new order for the ages, but while being unique in some respects, it is also continuous to a degree inherited from these system of government in England in Great Britain. But when we look at Great Britain, we see that it has a different form of democracy than we do. We have constitutional democracy. I don't know if you know, but Great Britain does not have a constitution. There's no constitution. We have a so called presidential system of government. And they have a parliamentary system of government. Now, India, in fact, where I grew up also has a parliamentary system, very much modeled on the English system. And one key difference by the way between the English system and the American system is that in the English system, you run for office as a member of a party. And so for example, Margaret Thatcher or Boris Johnson, they're running as the leader of the Tory party. And then you have another guy who's running as the leader of the Labor Party, and whichever party wins, that party's man, a woman becomes the leader, becomes the prime minister. And in that sense, you may say that the prime minister is coming out of the legislative branch because the legislative branch is the party that has been chosen by the people to rule or to legislate to make to make laws. Interestingly, if you are a leader of one party, let's say your Margaret Thatcher and your Tori and you're the leader of the Tory party. And there's a fight within the Tory party and your challenge by other Tory members and the Tories to take a vote and decide we'd rather have a different leader, you're out as prime minister. Now notice that doesn't happen in America. The Democrats in the House or Senate can't get together and say, listen, we no longer want Joe Biden. Let's get rid of him. And Biden's out. No, Biden's not out why, because Biden is independently elected as the president directly by the people, or at least so the story goes. And the point being that when you're elected in America by the people, as the president, you have independent authority, you're not your position is not somehow obligated to your party or to the legislature at all.
"margaret thatcher" Discussed on Bro History
"My grandpa actually made the point that, you know, they're both kind of imperialists in this sense. You know, it was an unwrapped island. You know, they're both just making these extra territorial claims, but basically they just misjudged the situation. They misjudged the political incentive structure that the British government would face because again, the Falklands lobby for years had been paying people to write editorials, paying MPs, putting pressure on the government to make sure the Falklands stayed inside the empire. And so Margaret Thatcher really, there's a great public outcry. Tons of support for going and trying to take it back and that's exactly what happens. And so that's kind of the background to the conflict. So he's on the same page. Yeah, I got some questions because you unloaded a lot of stuff on there. I guess maybe the first question I have is, you mentioned how there were these lobbying efforts happening on both sides and I was reading a little bit about the Argentine one. And I was wondering if you knew much about how they were trying to convince falklanders to want to be Argentine. Yes, and they did do a lot of great things in terms of trying to expand access to healthcare and education on the island. Providing its petrol, providing its air service, providing its airlines. So they did. They did try to read the deal. Sweeten the deal, they did try to swing the deal because their entire claim on the island was premised on the language used in the UN resolution, which was that the interests of the falklanders should be Paramount. In Argentina was trying to show that, look, we take way better care of you than the British, the British. They're not, you know, taking care of your healthcare or anything. They're trying to cut you off and basically get rid of you. You know, they're not even willing to have ships down here anymore. And we're willing to spend all this money to help you out. There was actually also a big Anglo Argentine community. Second and third generation Anglo Anglo Argentinians, who they would send to the island as kind of a public relations move to try and sell these britishers on this idea that like, look, we come from the same people you do. We're part of the Argentinian society, things are great. You got nothing to worry about. So yeah. So the second question following up on that is a good segue. I think is you mentioned early on that the Falkland Islands were just uninhabited. It's just a bunch of rocks in the middle of the ocean. You know, that people happen upon one day when they were doing exploring. And so nobody lived there initially. So what do you know what the ethnic makeup of the Falkland Islands was then and what that might look like in the later future when Britain and Argentina started fighting a war about it. What was like the ethnic ethnic makeup. Okay, so going back to like the 18th century. I guess maybe during the Falkland Islands war. And the war it was principally, it was principally britishers. Okay. Overwhelmingly so. So like white anglos in that respect. They would not look out of place. They spoke with the same accent, you know..

I mean he's just he was just the vehicle. It's this has been going on. This is this is what we've created. And i think this is whether you're talking about it from a media standpoint. I always look at it this way. If you go back to nineteen seventy and you go back to look at the you you look at. The public. Wealth in this country has shifted so dramatically from public wealth to private wealth that eventually everything is going to belong to the individual in there is no public. I mean isn't that. What mark margaret thatcher said eighties. There's no community. There is no community. And if you believe that then of course you wouldn't want free press. Of course you wouldn't want somebody trying to hold you accountable. No institutions are being held accountable. And and there's no. There's no accountability to the public and the public is for one. In so so many instances that is very much welcoming this until once again until they need to go to the hospital and say wait a minute. Nobody cares for me. There's nobody looking out for me. There's nothing here for me. I can't afford you know three hundred dollars. A month prescriptions. All of these different things we know all in this is where it's going and i think it's really interesting from a sports standpoint. I think that this great battle when we're talking about where we are in sports. The athletes in a lotta ways have been laid to the party. The the entertainers. They understood that they did not have to be necessarily Responsible to a public give you. Performance may leave. Sports has always been that one place where we've tied the public and the private where it was. The culture of the sport in the traditions of the sport is that you had a responsibility to answer the public and it's very paternalistic incredibly racist and sexist and all of those different things and the players now realized they'd got the power. And what are they gonna do with the power and the power is going to turn us into propaganda that they'll talk when they feel like talking. They won't talk unless they control the the platform of its their production company and that lebron doesn't do anything unless it's on one of his networks or one of his in his groups.

His logic is sound. Now.

"Ferguson. Major historian, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. His new book is doomed. Politics of catastrophe. So there's a colder from Cleveland who was saying that it's somewhat unfair to compare The deaths Cove ID to the deaths of other things that you mentioned. In light of the fact that this was only one year and there were many years. We come in. Well, you can calculate its on on an annual basis is if you like. I mean, most of the big respiratory pandemics were really two year affairs. That was true of 1918 19. 57 50 years and it will be true of covert, which will be remembered as the pandemic of 2022 21. And when you do that comparison, it kind of works out pretty clearly. Uh, 1918 19 was far far worse, uh, covered a similar time frame like our pandemic came in waves. But the total death numbers were far far higher. I mean, if you look at the global mortality 1918 19 it was nearly 40 million. Which would translate into 160 million in our time. Where is we're currently looking at death toll of over three million. And if you look at 57 58, but the global death toll was somewhere between two and Informally and if you scale to our populations, so I need the much better points of comparison. And the problem was that a great many people last year, including someone with a very similar name to me, an epidemiologist called Neil Ferguson at Imperial College, London. We're well aware I felt bad for you. It was good that my parents gave me the Galax spelling and I double l, already even more hate mail than usual. But the other new friends basically talks last March like we were facing 1918 19. He said Two million Americans 2.2 million Americans would die if we didn't lock down. On dating. That was wrong, And I said it was wrong with the time I said, I don't think it's bad. I don't know the viruses that deadly on I think this is this is overkill. It is interesting that the other day that same usar Grissom Any ill, Ferguson said in an interview that He was glad that the Chinese have done a drastic lockdown because that kind of gave Western countries permission to do the same. So we were kind of unwittingly copying what the Chinese Communist Party was doing. I think that was a huge blunder. We should have been copying Taiwan which got this right, but Taiwan was basically being ignored by the world. World Health Organization of that fine Taiwan as far as they were concerned, didn't exist because they were so in hock to their their friends in Beijing s O. I do think the comparisons are valid. I think when we do the comparisons, we can see that we weren't facing the 1919 scenario. We were looking at something much closer to 57 58 as older listeners will recall in 1957 58 the one no lockdown, no school closures. Minimal increases in public spending, and the economy barely felt the pandemic. So I will offer you some of my theories and I would like you to say what you think about them. As I always tell my guests I'm completely comfortable with the guests disagree. I think that the closing of schools for his long as we have has been criminal. Your reaction. I agree. And, incidentally soldiers, great liberal journalists, Niklas Christoph, who wrote this in his New York Times column. Not so long that we will, we will see that a generation of kids in public schools have been deprived of a year of education with with lasting consequences. And I think it was a shocking abdication of responsibility by the teachers Union not to prioritize school you opening private schools reopened. It was very possible to to reopen the school. And they were the ones who who didn't really need to, because the kids had laptops and ipads and could do distance learning, So we know it was possible to re open schools on. I think it was indeed criminal and will have terrible consequences not least. Inequality in America because it's our education system was doing a pretty poor job for poor kids already, but shutting them out of school for a year are this is going to have very, very negative consequences. So on that we agree Well, I'm glad, even though it's very painful that subject When you see will have consequences. I fully agree. Unfortunately, we will not have just consequences as injustice. The teachers, unions and the teachers will pay no price. That's right. I did did they will continue to enjoy this proportionate power in American politics, not least in in California. I'm beginning to think that it's that American teacher's union, kind of where the National Union of Mineworkers where in Britain in the 19 seventies and over my tea and malignant force that ultimately will have to be confronted. A Z Margaret Thatcher confronted that the British trade unions and until that happens, this country is going to have the kind of ball and chain around its its leg because how can we flourishes The nation if education Is increasingly dysfunctional. If it's happening it all and we haven't even spoken about the plague of work is, um, I mean, we we didn't have just one played in 2022 21. We had a plague of the mind as well. Which is this? Lunatic ideology that masquerades under under slogans like anti racism and Ideology, which is, in fact deeply a liberal in hostile to American values. That plague is actually infected more people. Then Cove in 19 and may well end up doing even more damage. Well, I didn't know you'd say that. But that's exactly What I have been saying back to the epidemic or pandemic. Overwhelmingly. I have followed this avidly very seriously, overwhelmingly. Those who died of it. People who were Within a year or two of death. In any event. I know that sounds callous, but that Zsa society has to make decisions based on who is being hurt. Children were not being hurt. That's right. 80% of people who who died were people over the age of 65 on the further up you go. The H. Ladder of the heart of the mortality. The percentages of people who were who died of covert in younger age groups was tiny. Right. And yet we we locked down young people. It Z part of this criminality that we're both. We're both referring to. So in that case, it's the teachers, unions and their disproportionate, malevolent influence. What about the medical profession? Did it distinguish itself?

And they had no fascist sense whatsoever. And the guys were worse. They had to come over here with the sands of all pants. Like you know what? Sans a belt pants the past without the other belts this like a real thing. Like Sands. The belt? Yeah, no sans a belt. That was the thing And then they literally would take the cologne and just poured over their head. It was just, like smell, like, really bad, actually closing 2012 dead. Okay, So there you go. So, but that place it was gold for a number of years, because I mean, that was the place that if you could But you had to. And the worst part was is that he did go there for the, you know, break the slump and you didn't succeed. Then you knew you were totally in a major slump. And then you would have to go to e bore. And just like you really pay for it. No, not papers. Everything. Loser. Is there any so? Like Hollywood? Hollywood glorifies, you know, strippers and prostitutes. Has anyone ever seen? Ah, hot either or a stripper? I haven't seen a hot stripper since. Like the 19 nineties. Go to any place on Dale Mabry. They're all Pretty No. Are they lust? Mm. I like your high. No, you look it like the movies. And you see these girls that perfect and bodies and blah, blah, blah. I mean, I have spit allows that I've been a strip club. But like the last time I was, they didn't quite look like the Hollywood type. What's the one on West Shore? The nice one. Penthouse club or I went to the penthouse on my birthday has had good clientele. Penthouses pretty. I went to 2001 last year. Me They were good, but I mean, like, back in the day, like, okay, so retro Miami back in the day. Yeah. Place called. Yeah, Scarlets know Scarlett used to have a really good girls write the word they any club. Yeah, Yeah, they were bikini club. There was this one girl red hair is gonna carry her name for the life of me, but oh, my God. I spent a couple of paychecks getting lap dances with boy. Oh, my gosh. It's so damn hot. Um, terror long flowing red hair. She just had a But that just anyways, I die aggress Miami back in the eighties nineties very, very hot on the stripper game was on point. But you know they're safe, though, like would you take one of those girls home with you? So when I was in college, I went through my stripper face. And yes, I took a number of girls to their homes. I never could bring home to Mom and Dad's house because I lived in college, But I would go to their house and things were fun. And I got out of my stripper phase in college, and it was a good little room there. That's like a face and you don't talk about it just kind of ancient relic of the past. No, I mean, it's just like it's not like it was just like, you know, first. Why did no drugs whatsoever? Still to this day? No drugs, So it wasn't like, you know, you're starting up lines. Doing, toots and then you know, stayed out till six. In the morning. It was just Get off her shift at three o'clock in the morning, Be there, Take her home and then get up in time to go to work or college today. I've got a question for you, Mike. You said she was pretty but not hot. So what's the difference between like, hot and beautiful and like, cute We'll start that. You you look it movies like Was that horrible one with that girl that was in saved by the bell, Horrible showgirls. Like most of us in that movie were hot like you Look at Eddie. Eddie Murray. I'm dangerous. A Beverly Hills cop all the strippers in that movie hot. You look at the like the hangover. The strippers hot. Where do you I mean, like, all like every girl in it was a perfect 10 or 12. Like what? I mean, right now, I guarantee you go to a strip club and look, I mean, there's something that you don't have to be perfect, but I mean Hot factor, right? If you're gonna go and spend how much does a lap dance run these days? Well, hold on. So you're asking anyone anyone talks 18 5 $15 for a lap dance? Yeah, that's for a 32nd song that's like for YouTube for five minutes. But there's no way that you're paying $15 for a five minute like maybe, like, maybe like $40. $40 for a lap dance. Yeah. Just based on my own. Actually, I think it was 40. My friend bought it for me. I think what he's out. You're getting them for free. Well, one time I we know this rich guy that used to want to be with the bone. We all know who I'm talking about Mike, and he gave me 80 bucks for the night and he was thinking I was just gonna like, make a rain and kind of like spending throughout the night and I spent there within one and done within, like 15 minutes later, like those happy Where's the money? I spent it And he was like what? Well, what do you suppose to do with it? Right. You're supposed to go and get a lap dance was thinking I was gonna separate it throughout the night, but I spent it all 20 minutes in a row. So how much do you have 80 bucks? 80. Bucks does not go far in a in a strip club, and this was Told how he would nights on Armenia. Oh, God. Well, $80 could've got your father there. Mike, someone just the third. So I just referred Why Someone just referred to New York, New York as heaven's waiting room for swingers. Hey, man, I was about 30 years old. And like I said it was what was going on there. Yeah, just hot dog down.
There Is Real Value In The 'Truthiness' Of Fictionalised History
"Fictionalized. History is essentially where you take something out of history and event or person and you sprinkle on a little bit of featuring a little bit of creative and poetic license if you like to try and make that story. More relatable more understandable more relevant to a modern audience perhaps and a great example of that would be some of these series. That you see on netflix or movies that you see on netflix. For example like the crown. Which is the story of the british royal family now. The current series has just recently launched. And it's cop the bit of flack for historical inaccuracies. And that's led to a conversation about the role of fictionalized history. Because in a way it's a lie. It's not a truth. But then the people who defend this version this autistic version is fictionalized of history. Will tell you that the truth is generally a failing nuance thing truth and reality of failing nuanced. And it's pretty hard to get those nuances across in maybe a ten episode series or two l. movie but by by adding a little creative round the story as low as it's true to the overall message it's actually a much better way to get that message across and to get a better understanding of the reality of history maybe the truth of history but the reality of history and it's something that i heard russell brand talking about today where he talked about the truthfulness which i think is a great would describe it because it's not strictly speaking. The truth is not the facts but it actually really is reality. Probably if it's done well and most people tend to say that this current series of the crown is still getting the overall message across. It's not necessarily the one hundred percent of the things that happened off. Factually correct about the truthfulness of it is still there. And i think the thing that they're coming across now is. The current series is about margaret thatcher. Times and princess diana's times which this people alive today still recall those events and so they poking holes in the history whereas the facts of the history whereas in previous episodes previous series. Sorry of the same show. They were talking so far back. That people weren't necessarily alive to question. So i think in a world of fake news. I think it's an interesting perspective. to think about. The truth innis of fictionalized history. Because if you really want to tell a story you've gotta get it relevant to today's audience. You've got to get the audience engaged. And i think a little bit of fiction around the facts is probably a good way to do it again. In light of the world the world of fake news that we live in that fake news era that has been created around us. I just think it's an interesting perspective on a friday.
The Crown season 4
"I am now joined by. Amanda dobbins our resident expert. Amanda thanks for joining me again. My pleasure your pleasure to watch these middle. Three episodes of the crown season four absolutely crushing. It this stuff. Is this really good. We're talking today about favorites fagin and taryn knowle's ands basically. It's the episode with all the kids. The episode with the guy breaks into the palace and the episode. Where charles and diana go to australia. And i have to say that i think four. I've seen a few people dating for here and there for some reason. Maybe because it's too too well kind of put too much of a bow on it. I think it's fucking extraordinary. Like if i i thought that favorites was a really like startling achievement in dramatic writing and just in terms of the amount of stuff that they burn through in the way that they bring all these characters. What did you. What did you think of that episode. I agree with you. And i have not seen any criticisms because i don't really consume social media anymore but anyone who thinks it's too neat or they put a bow on it. I guess find another show This is peter. Marin is a playwright. There is a lot of construction and intentional cinematic and exposition all dialogue and set pieces built into this. It's not. it's not that it's obvious but all of it is very crafted. So i agree with you that i thought episode four was tremendous in terms of the amount of like and setup that they managed to convey to you in a very effective way. Because we don't really know anything about two of the four children barely met any of them and has been kind of a side character and so there are four children who get their own scenes and moments and so you have to develop those characters. You have to develop the queen's relationship to all of them. You also have the margaret thatcher thematic connection of the of the children. And you're drying out a little bit about margaret thatcher's relationship to women as well which is an important larger thematic episode. And also you've got the falklands war. I mean it's and they do it definitely and i thought about something you say a lot. Which is the crown doesn't like doesn't waste a moment. They just pick the scenes they pick the lines. And you know everything you need to know. That is so hard and they nail it. I mean they do a lot of stuff that i think other shows would probably shy away from because it would feel too like they were showing you too many of their cards so i kept thinking about the scene between elizabeth and an you know they go riding out. This is the thing that they sort of both share this love of horses even though and is obviously phillips favorite. And that's like in the way that that gets conveyed in the beginning and their conversations heartbreaking you know like their conversation is legitimately breaking and i think you could look at what an says. She's like. I used to enjoy being the difficult on and scaring people and now i don't feel like have any control over that anymore and you could be like well like you might go your entire life and never have that level of self awareness. You know you may have to go through thirty years of therapy to find that out about yourself and this young woman just like sort of pops out off when confronted by her mother on iran day. But it's beautiful writing. It's just it's just like amazing writing. And i thought the performances specifically in that scene mostly because the three sons come off as absolute troll lords in this episode mean. Yeah but the scene in particular was was quite lovely thought. Listen i think that there are levels of emotional breakthrough and clarity in this. Show that it's never happened in real life and certainly have never happened in the uk and to anyone who is absolutely senior no country just a lot of time talking about salads in england too early because they get a lot of salad industry and how to their salads or just blue cheese and bacon their emotional relationships are blue cheese and bacon. Do they are not. They're not doing the the smart greens. Now i mean it's it's a tv show and we are projecting emotions and trying to figure out how these people felt about the facts that we know are true. That's what we think is so interesting about episode for which made me reflect a little bit of on the queen character in this season and an interesting thing is happening. We talked a little bit about this on the last episode. Where libya coleman is kind of popping out a little bit and coleman is one of the great actresses of time and also i find her personally hilarious so i think that that's great but i see moments where it nothing is on the page and it's just olivia colman giving it that sense of humor giving it that timing Or maybe even the character is being a little bit written to her strengths and that is also a little bit because the queen is not. i mean. she's not a side character but the way they're telling the story is about all of the other people and events who are kind of crowding into that character's life and how she's bouncing all of it but episode four is just it's about the queen and all of their writing it's character development that is in line with the past three seasons that we've seen and it's pretty extraordinary and i think libya coleman also does like a great job with the actual written script and the character and the reacting to like the horror show of her children. I mean they all are. Do you have a favorite of the four. Who is your favorite on the shore in real life. No on the show. I don't really i. It's shifted i think blassie's and it would have been charles and yeah and this season it's probably end. Although let me get to the end of it. I mean it's obviously not editor andrew. So yeah. I wanted to just quickly before we get into edward andrew charles. A little bit ask you you start this episode up. Did you expect the wedding. No if only because number one. I read some spoilers about how they don't show the wedding but i do also think in their when charles and diana yes yes. The most watched royal wedding. I think of all time. I i don't. I should have gotten this statistics. It was close to a billion people. Watch it. I mean that was everywhere and people taped it and watched it over and over again rate including me who. Dvr it when bbc america riera it before the wedding harry and meghan and it was part of their like twelve hour block of programming. I watched all of it i. It's pretty boring. They didn't really have their production values in one thousand nine hundred one that we expect from royal wedding now anyway but no. There was sort of finality to episode three and there was something intentional about the way they showed their rehearsal and kind of the real behind the scenes emotions where i was like. Okay this is an interesting choice and like this is what we're going to get and also i've seen it before was do because like they wouldn't be a lot of opportunity for people to be talking during that so unless there would be some fagin like wrinkle history that they wanted to explore not really sure what they would do their right. I mean it happened at such a scale that even it would defy the crown's siegi budget. I will say. I was surprised that diana disappeared for new episodes. We'll get episode five. But she is very briefly shown and she is heavily pregnant when she shown episode four. And she just won't come out of the room and in one way. That's really all you need to know. About how their marriage is going and how everything is you know how everything is is shaken out but on the other hand i was like uh this is a choice. Diana pretty popular. Yeah yeah no. I thought that the dow is interesting. Also the suggestion. That charles is starting to become under the influence of these gurus and like self help nutritionist. Which i didn't. I didn't know that about him. Oh yeah the the lawrence vander past reference. I only know about this from the tina brown book. But apparently he brought those books on their honeymoon and then tried to get diana who was twenty at the time of their wedding to read the books and discuss them over for dinner on their honeymoon. So that's how that went

What Biden's America could look like
"In much of the world and nowhere more. So than among america's allies joe biden's victory has come as a great relief under his presidency. There will be no more bullying and threats to leave. Nato america will stop treating the european union as a photo on trade or its own forces stationed in south korea as a protection racket in place of donald. Trump's wrecking bowl. Mr biden will offer an outstretched hand working over simply on global crises. From kuroda to climate change under mr trump america's favorability ratings in many allied countries sank to new lows. Mr biden promises to make america a beacon again a champion of lofty values and the defender of human rights leading as he puts it in his acceptance speech not only by the example of our pa but by the power of our example allies are central to mr biden's vision he rightly sees them as a multiplier of american influence tuning a country with a quarter of global. Gdp into a force with more than double that he is also a multilateral by instinct on his first day in office he will rejoin the paris agreement on climate change which america formerly left on november the fourth unlike mr trump. He believes it is better to lead the world health organization than to leave it. He will reinvigorate arms control a priority being to ensure order new. Start the last remaining. Nuclear pact with russia is extended beyond february the fifth he would like to rejoin the nuclear deal with iran that mr trump dumped if he can persuade the iranians to go back into compliance inevitably. America's friends have a long list of things they hope it will do as it reimburses global leadership the demand stretch from places and organizations. Mr trump has abused such as the un and allies like germany. Two parts of the world. He has ignored such as much of africa. And it will not be smooth traveling not all countries in our style jake for a return to obama era politics when america lead from behind and blood. It's red lines. Several countries on nato's front line with russia like the way defenses. Have been beefed up under mr trump and asian allies like how mr trump has confronted. China talked a free and open indo pacific and worked on the cloud with australia india and japan. Mr biden needs to prove that he will not turn soft. His priorities will be to quell virus and improve the economy on both counts. He can count on little support and much pushback. If the senate is under republican control as is likely such troubles at home have probably also exacerbated. The country's reluctance to take on more foreign burdens. Who can be sure that world-weary jacksonians will come galloping. Back in twenty twenty four. Perhaps even with mr trump in the saddle so rather than pile demand upon needed demand. America's allies should go out of their way to show that they have learned to pull their weight. Nato partners for example should not relax defense spending just because mr trump is no longer bullying them. Germany should pay heed to french. Average to build european defense capacity. there is scope to do so without undermining nato europeans could lend a big hand to france in these suheil in asia. The quad could keep deepening naval and other cooperation. Japan and south korea should restrain their feuding taiwan or to make a more serious contribution to its own defense. I should also work with america to repair the international order. They can support efforts to resist chinese or russian rule. Bending many countries will want to join mr biden's efforts at concerted carbon cutting mr biden will face a world full of problems but he will also start with strengths. Thanks to mr trump. He has sanctions on adversaries including iran and venezuela that he can use as chips and among friends he can seek to convert relief at renewed american engagement into stronger. Burden-sharing is allies would be wise to answer that call with enthusiasm. Finally how princess diana shaped british politics netflix's flagship series. The crown has done a fine job of telling the story of postwar britain through the prism of the monarchy. The previous series nephew is in the mid nineteen seventies mired in the miners strike and the three day week new one which began streaming on november fifteenth. Introduces us to two women. Who were destined to change the country in profound ways margaret thatcher and lady diana spencer lady thatcher made it clear from the first but she was in the business of changing the nation. They design a spencer was a bird of a very different feather. Shy girl who had failed all her o levels twice and had no interest in politics she was brought onto the national stage for the soaker of producing mail as to the throne yet. The country is still living with her political legacy as surely as it is with lady. Thatcher's princess diana's genius was to mix two of the most profound forces of modern politics emotion and anti elitism into a powerful populist cocktail. She was one of the modern masters of the politics of emotion. Feeling the people's pain just as they felt hers. She repeatedly outmaneuvered prince. Charles during long war of the wales's because she was willing to bare her soul in public interview with martin bashir of the bbc in november. Nineteen ninety-five is now the focus of controversy as her brother earl. Spencer claims that it was obtained under false pretenses using forged documents. Whatever the reason for it. The interview was a masterclass in emotional manipulation at one pivotal moment. Princess diana acknowledged that she would never be queen but hope that she would be queen of people's hearts. The princess used her mastery of the politics of feeling to turn himself into a champion of the people against the powerful. The people's princess in tony blair's raise she patronized charities that helped marginalized folks such as hiv patients and kept company with pop stars and celebrities rather than with the usual royal wax. Books the most memorable music at her funeral was not an historic him. But a song by elton john adapted for herbert originally written about another icon. Turn victim marilyn monroe. Anti elitism was directed. Not at the monarchy's wells. She happily lived in kensington palace and received a seventeen million pound. That's twenty three million dollar divorce. Settlement plus four hundred thousand pounds a year but added stunted emotional state the traditional deal to which royal side allow them to behave as they liked in crowded kings have almost always had mistresses because they marry her reasons of dynasty not compatibility so long as they behaved with decorum in public princess. Diana regarded this humbug. She succeeded in reconciling the most. Jarring of opposites despite being a top tier aristocrat. Her family the spencers. Look down on the windsors this german carpetbaggers. She was universally known as die. Her death in a car crash won her a spectacular posthumous victory against the royal court. It produced the greatest burst public lack remission. Britain has ever seen and led to widespread demands that the royal should display more emotion. As if the damn cheek could replace the stiff upper lip as the definition of britishness. What would really do the monarchy. Good show that they had grasped the lesson of diana's popularity and editorial in the independent thundered would be for the queen and the prince of wales to breakdown cry and hug one another on the steps of the abbey this saturday. Cincinnati death emotional. Populism has threaded through politics. Tony blair presented himself as the people's prime minister. He championed cool. Britannia surrounded himself with popstars and urged his staff to call me. Tony the next conservative prime minister call me. Dave cameron a distant relation of princess. Diana's adopted this combination of compassion signaling. Hugging hoodies is instead of cracking down on juvenile delinquents and studied informality relaxing and kitchen suppers replacing previous. Tory premier stiffness. Both men were responsible to that emotional. Populism interfere with the affairs of state domestic and foreign policy choices continued to be conducted according to the dictates of reason evidence brexit tears. By contrast follow the diana's script they appeal to the heart rather than the had to win their arguments. They used feelings of patriotism and resentment rather than facts about trade flows. They denounced the elites for trying to straight the wisdom of the people in much the same way as diana files denounce the palace for ignoring the people's emotions lay turned on the nation's core institutions. Parliament the civil service the supreme court when they suspected attempts to frustrate their wishes they succeeded in defeating the establishment in much the same way as princess diana had by claiming to stand for emotion rather than reason and the people rather than the elite alexander. Boris federal johnson has reconciled the opposites. He embodies justice. She did a card carrying member of the metropolitan elite. He has managed to sell himself as a man of the people as she was die. So he is. Boris the first series of the crown shows a young queen. Elizabeth studying water badgett's english constitution under the guidance of henry. Martin the vice provost of eton who kept a pet raven in a cage and address the on crisis gentlemen budgets. Great work distinguishes between the dignified branch of the constitution. The monarchy and the efficient branch elected politicians implicit in that distinction is badges perception. That emotions pose a dangerous threat to the proper conduct of politics. The monarchy provides a controlled lead for them thus enabling responsible people to get on with the difficult task of running the country by using people's feelings as the fuel for her astonishing career princess. Diana broke that safety valve britain will be living with the consequences of the emotional populism that she helped to release for years to come.

Early climate prediction for 2020 'spot on'
"Climate Change forecasts issued decades ago made specific predictions on how much the earth would warm. One British team predicted. Global temperatures would rise half a degree Celsius from nineteen ninety two today. So how did that forecast turn out Jonathan? Watts is the guardians global environment editor. He's been tracking the British meteorological. Office climate forecasts hey. Jonathan welcome to climate cast high either get to be on. On the show, so the UK met Office Hadley Centre for climate. Science predicted in Nineteen, ninety that global temperatures would rise half a degree Celsius by this year by twenty twenty. How accurate was that forecast? Well, they just celebrated their thirtieth anniversary, and one of the things that they pointed out was that they go to spot on? The happy said to was setup to be on. On the cutting edge of climate, research, and the predictions have now been realized they were remarkably accurate, and what about Global Sea ice? You say they primarily focused on temperature, but as the years have gone by today's measurements, compared to predictions made in the last thirty years on Arctic Sea ice. If anything they'd been too conservative, they did not expect the ice melt as quickly as. As it has done at some numbers that they gave since the nineteen nineties are the yes, global temperatures won't buy Hoffa Degree Arctic Sea. Ice has shrunk by almost two million square kilometers. Sea Levels have risen by ten centimeters. Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere has increased by sixty bucks per million so they they stress that we're living in a very different climate from the one. The that existed when this Hadley Centre started. Let's rewind back to Nineteen Ninety Jonathan. prime minister Margaret. Thatcher was considered a conservative. Did she support this work that the Hadley? Centre was doing on Climate Science Margaret. Thatcher was one of the most enthusiastic supporters of climate science. In the early days. She studied science Oxford University. She didn't need much convincing. There was a serious risk that that had to be face. She persuaded her Cabinet to put up the money. Will the Hadley Centre and she actually was there at the opening in her speech for the inauguration. She said they would be serious consequences of greenhouse gas emissions, and she said what they send to predict will affect at daily lives, governments and international organizations in every part of the weld, going to have to sit up and take notice and respond. How have the global climate predictions from the Hadley Centre from thirty years ago been received by you know both supporters and skeptics in the UK for the most part Britain does no cap, such a strong climate, skeptic movement as the US, and so there is widespread agreement in parliament in the public. Really. Serious action needs to be taken and I think highly sense the mets office. have a a part of the reason for that, because the very well respected it's, it's quite a conservative institution that these radical people they account so between bureaucrats and scientists. Very careful about the conduct predictions they make. And I think that has helped to convince a widespread of society that something needs to be
Boris Returns: British Prime Minister Returns to Work
"The British prime minister Boris Johnson is back at work on two two weeks convalescence following hospital treatment for coronavirus which included three days in intensive care his re emergence into public life comes at a time when there is pressure from within his own party I'm from business leaders to ease locked restrictions and reopen the economy but speaking outside his London residence number ten Downing Street Mr Johnson said he would resist that pressure the risk of a second outbreak was too great well I know it is tough I want to get this economy moving as fast as I can but I refuse to throw away all the efforts and the sacrifices of the British people and to risk a second major outbreak and huge loss of life and the overwhelming of the NHS what is because the Markham Rifkind a former British Foreign Secretary of served in the cabinets of Margaret Thatcher and John Major how significant in his view was Boris Johnson's return to work a Downing Street today well the government's work to perfectly well but it would say it's a very good coincidence in the sense that he is physically able to be back in the harness just as the government has to reach a decision on the fundamental question of the future of the lock out and whether we can ease the country's traditions of that is the sort of decision that really requires the prime minister's involvement as well as the cabinet as a whole do you see him as being a changed man in terms of his attitude towards the lockdown I mean he is said to it to be instinctively a libertarian and may be reluctantly embraced the lockdown but ten seems to have changed his mind I'm not sure that he's changed his mind and I think you you know you did never declared somebody with his views the same would apply to almost anyone who was prime minister is very reluctant to introduce a lock down which means the curtailment of people's civil liberties for an indefinite period of time that's a huge decision so I'm not surprised that there was a reluctance to do it until it became necessary once you've got it obviously the details different but the difficulties are not that different having got the status quo have beginning to see the policy working it's getting old in the right direction so you you then have to take that crucial decision and it's not an easy one so I'm not surprised that in his remarks today from ten Downing Street Hey he was reminding people we have to go but it gorgeous day he did not rule out of any early easing the law card I still believe that's what's likely to happen but he wanted to make sure that people just didn't assume that everything that was going to go back to normal it over the next few days of the next week because but undoubtedly his own experience of the corona virus must have changed his approach is attitude I'm not sure it would change his view on policy I am as a person of course you can find see your death in the in the in the face baited realize how your life's a tottering by somebody's uncertain their expectations without that having an impact on you as a customer but they they it if you've never got coronavirus the kind of decision you'd be having to take the day and my guess is is attitude to how we deal with it would not be very different to what we're saying there is that it would appear quite a debate going on within the Conservative Party as to the speed at which the actor lockdown should be eased well this is the big day out in the country is not peculiar to the Conservative Party are good members of parliament applies to all of us to price for you and me and every citizen of this country and now we are sitting most of the western countries I have begun a lot yeah I know in that case most of the day but with the the damage done by the virus began earlier I said since since not surprising there are beginning to ease up slightly earlier but the government said commitment at the moment is that the current restrictions continue for another ten days that is actually quite useful because over these ten days not in it does the government have the experience of what is happening in those countries that have already used to log in it also provides more time to be certain that the downward trend of the virus which we have seen now since April the eighth is continuing I may be going more slowly than we would like but it's all in the right direction will be another week closer to this be certain of that is the case and that's likely to be what happens but it also it it gives the government the time it needs to work out how you implement to the easing that they're almost certainly consider it I mean for example that people are getting back to work A. each industry is different as to the ways in which you can ensure social distancing what is going to be the best no people in terms of contact omitted with their families with the close friends is not just the in principle is that going to be eased but how could it be done what about the particular circumstances people mostly very very elderly people who are also people with serious illnesses are serious underlying health problems these are all issues of the to impact on the economy in matters of that kind so I'm not surprised you will want to take advantage of the next week Sir you remember some modicum of lady Thatcher's cabinet when the van health secretary Joe mole spoke of a move to a health care system based on private insurance similar to the American model it's seven it's difficult to imagine such an idea getting any traction today isn't it well yes but it was equally difficult in the government the just believe that was gonna happen and the government of John Major in which I served or the governments of the David Cameron or Theresa may we do have a healthy private sector in the relation to health it is a significant part of the health system but it also works very closely with an NHS indeed at this very moment quite a number of private hospitals are being used with their agreements by the NHS in order to quarantine people who have problems other than growing the virus from going into hospitals where they might get infected from the virus as well the former British Foreign Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind speaking to be before taking his daily constitutional walk in central
BrainStuff Classics: Does 'Power Dressing' Actually Work?
"Brain stuff learn bomb here with a classic episode from our archives and from former host Christian savior this. This one was inspired by a book. Christian ran across about how to dress for success. It got him wondering can power dressing really make a difference socially or psychologically below their brain stuff. I'm Christian Sager and I've got a question for you. Do I look powerful. Well I I know you can't see me right now but I feel powerful. Some people even think that what you wear can produce this kind of confidence and who doesn't want to feel good about themselves. So what is this power dressing? And does it actually work well to answer that question? We have to take a trip to the smooth nineteen seventies when a guy named John Malloy came out with a series of books about dressing for success. He prescribed a uniform of sorts for both men and women. That would help them. Achieve Greatness in business professions for men Malloy recommended conservative business attire. That was high quality and fit well essentially a business suit in dark hue with a modest white shirt and a tie. Think Don Draper for women. He adapted this uniform. To include a skirted suit and a soft blouse with floppy or bowed. Neck pieces think Margaret Thatcher in order to achieve the kind of authority of the Iron Lady Malloy recommended. Women do two things. Don't look like a secretary and don't look too sexy. You couldn't wear waistcoats or contour jackets. Because they drew attention to the bust. Scarves were popular because they drew attention to the face and away from the breasts and floral prints and feminine colors like Salmon. Pink were out. But you didn't want to look to masculine either. Hence the skirt instead of trousers. This was the birth of power dressing and by the nineteen eighties. It became the way enterprising. Women learned to manage or limit the potential sexuality of their bodies and leave all that gross girl stuff like cooties at home but as they entered the corporate workforce in ever greater numbers. Some women wanted to modify this uniform while maintaining their professional appearance. One alternative model for breaking out of these fashion limitations was Princess Diana with her more glamorous outfits others were on TV and shows like dynasty designing women and Moonlighting enter broad shoulder pads wide lapels and a wider range of textures colors and accessories. Cut to the present day now. Most of these fashion fads have come and gone but you can still see their influence on politicians. For Example Take Hillary Clinton or Donald trump many of the tenets of power dressing are still employed. Today we just don't call it that anymore. But a twenty fifteen study reexamined the principles behind power dressing. It found that putting on formal clothing does indeed make us feel powerful and even makes us think differently. The authors of this study tested student participants in a series of experiments by rating their outfits and taking cognitive tests when the students switched out of sweat pants and into the kind of clothing. They thought they should wear to a job interview. The tests showed their cognitive processing became more abstract broader and holistic the authors. Also say that how often you actually wear. Formal clothes doesn't matter regardless of when you wear. These uniforms have become a symbol of power. There have been other studies into how clothing affects our cognition to for instance. When people wear white doctors coats
Plan to Cut U.S. Troops in West Africa Draws Criticism From Europe
"Look look first at NATO the the actual military chiefs of rich Jew shortly to convene in Brussels the United States brost hat chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Milley has burned one interesting acting item on the agenda in advance prefiguring a potential drawdown of American forces in West Africa. This is extremely likely to prompt and unenthused response from France in particular which is extensively deployed a theater which it believes not without reason is a key frontline in the ongoing global campaign against Islamist extremism. Mary what's what's going on here. Won't use the United States Losing interest abruptly in West Africa. Well I think there are two reasons. one of them is because president trump is specially I think The top brass in American intelligence. They are very fixed on what they see As the future threat coming from China and that they are increasingly concentrating their resources looking in that direction the other thing and is that trump came to office and this is often forgotten Saying that he wanted to stop American engagement in in foreign wars. And this I think was one of the one of the reasons why he was elected. It was very popular policy For a lot of Americans and it remains so but right through his time as president trump has faced quite a lot of opposition from the top brass about cutting back on Americans abroad have been various attempts. He tried to pull Americans out of Afghanistan. The top brass objected. He tried to pull Americans out of Syria. Immediate media outcry from all the allies and saying he was betraying the Kurds. He tried to pull out of Iraq. Similar things West Africa could have basinas. Gene is a sort of slightly soft touch because the only people he's going to offend particularly by that again to be the French as we've seen well on the subject of the French being offended Jonathan they going to be aren't they and not without reason France already has four and a half thousand troops deployed in West Africa. There's two one hundred twenty more due to go shortly And it's not like they've been doing nothing night. They have found somebody to fight once they got there. Oh Yes yes. They've been very active. There and suffered suffered quite a few casualties as part of that. But also this fits for the Frans into a broader attempt by president. Emmanuel McCall to reset reset France's relationship with its former colonies in Africa lens going ahead on the economic front and on other fronts And and I think the question here is how much France wants to take responsibility for this region of the world how much it sees this. Moore's wars an international global Issue which the. US should continue to be involved with Mary. You made the accurate point. The trump's big pitch in two thousand sixteen was that he would bring troops home that America would not engage itself in pointless ridiculous interminable wars overseas etc.. He he probably does understand that the best pitchy can make this. November Is along the same lines. He he walked a very narrow path. Victory in two thousand sixteen but if he can go back the American people in two thousand twenty and say the economy's all right. I haven't started any stupid. That's probably his best shot. That being the case Do we wonder how nervous other NATO military chiefs are going to be the prospect of trump actually. Winning this thing is then possible that the arrest of NATO really has to stop thinking about the United States as the cornerstone of the alliance. Well I think that quite a lot of NATO but especially in the European Union That sense has really been strengthening. Ever since trump came to office there was quite a lot of diffidence Shall we say through the campaign. When trump seemed to cast aspersions on the future of NATO suggesting that it wasn't necessarily in US interest to Continue to be in NATO And you saw the Russians from that right across Europe but especially interestingly in Britain of course but also in eastern Central Europe where they see the United States and NATO in particular the protector. The A big protector of their security against Russia. Now it seems to me talk though Trump seemed to have been brought round a bit Um about the sort of survivability and relevance of NATO nonetheless that Trepidation in Europe remains and we've seen seen just in the last few days With a paper I think originating in the British military Where they say the new British government? When it does it's it's promised Security and defence review has got to look ahead to a time when the United States may and not be Engaged as it is in Europe and when the UK will have to look to being more autonomous in defense security terms and that is a complete rethink For All the British military your finds itself in classically horns Komo whatever cliche One canoes there on the one hand they want the United States to remain Invoke very very involved in NATO and if one is on his to be the main pair in NATO and supplier of troops And so on but at the same time particularly with trump in the White House. They don't want America to dominate dominate. When NATO is going so you get this whole debate about where is NATO? After the end of the Cold War Matt calls from about it being brain dead and having to rethink its future. Sure and so on. But you're has first of all to decide what role it sees for the United States and whether that allies with what trump things a couple. Let's move on now to the rare problem of what a retired. Pope should do with his time. Pope's usually leave the office of course only when recalled all to barracks by the omnipotent overlord but benedict the sixteenth bucked. This tradition in two thousand and thirteen when he handed in the big hat voluntarily since then benedict addict has mostly maintained inappropriate silence but he broke it a few weeks back to speak up in defense of priestly. Celibacy apparently concerned by reports that his successor Pope Francis Francis favored the church taking a more relaxed attitude. Will it now appears that Benedikt is walking it back. His name will be removed from future editions of the book in which he made his feelings known Mary. First of all It's obviously not possible to know the mind of a retired Pope Benedict the sixteenth sixteenth. But why would he be assuming that this point that anybody cares what he thinks. Well I think because he still has the rank this extraordinary sort of rank of Pope Emeritus America's extraordinary thing. I'm opposed America's you think he keeps on these credit card. Well that doesn't the hotel upgrade but by keeping the title even emeritus That puts tim effectively on a par with the current pope And I think that was always going to create difficulties and it's probably remarkable really that we haven't seen gene similar difficulties until now But I think that's also when you when you look at the two characters when you look at Pope Benedict as being What appeared a very reticent very theologically based very traditional minded German pope hope? And you look at Pope Francis who's latin-american And this in fact is where this whole troubles risen. Because he's talking about parts of the Amazon Wurzburg ver-very difficult priests. This argument is being going on for quite a long time as to whether if lifted the celibacy requirement. Then maybe it would be easier to find priests for those very remote remote areas But it does seem to me that in terms of character as well as in terms of everything else you're looking at two very different people and also a church which house has still a very strong conservative. Whatever the president pope says tries to do has a very very conservative lobby Maybe majority he I don't know and which you know finds it useful to appeal to the power of the Pope Emeritus. Jonathan an ice will confess to our listeners that I am not myself in especially accomplished a Catholic theologian. But you think I am. I'm hoping you know more about about this than I do. Just benedict the sixteenth quoted views on the issue in question itself. He says it doesn't seem possible to realize both vocations by which he meant the priesthood and marriage simultaneously. Now other married people in my experience have jobs boy. Is this one any different because When you become? I'm a priest as I understand it celibacy is part of your Decision to remove yourself from the material every every day human world and become somebody somewhat different Maria. I would like to expand this conundrum to the more general principle. Here which is which is what happens happens when people leave high office once you should that be the end of it once you are off the stage as it were should you therefore just shut up. Well I think One of the reasons may be the reason Currently for the continued existence of the House of Lords in the UK. is exactly I'm going to give a sort of position and role For people who have I think the current terminology is stepped back from public life But they can also make trouble even when they're in the Lord's even in what is regarded as subordinate position. vis-a-vis the comments I mean. We saw That Margaret Thatcher Entre gave her successor. John Major very hard time when he was in office And it's been I think it's quite difficult for people who've been to that extent engaged engaged on the front line Actually to say nothing when they see or seems to them that they're successor is behaving behaving such a foolish way when you suddenly become used to that and when you're still relatively young I mean that's the one has a number of quite young a young presidents prime ministers and so on retiring. Tony Blair Bill Clinton others who I think will find it very difficult just to say ongoing off to rotate long walks in the countryside. And say nothing I mean I. I'm sympathetic to that to an extent because it must be the heck of it adjustment from having the sort of the world hang. Hang on your every word to suddenly you know. Once you've sort of signed a piece of paper handed off nobody caring anymore but is there Jonathan away that you can do you. I guess constructive backseat driving. I mean I've just come back from Australia. Where our current Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been weathering? The bushfire crosses to a chorus of criticism. Some of it from one of his predecessors Kevin Rudd who broke with the protocol of differential respect and sank the Bhuttan with what unmistakably like relish the way that you can actually be helpful as a former officeholder. Yes I mean you can bring the wealth experience that you've had and good judgement judgement etcetera etcetera To to bear if your success was wanted of course they may not want they may not want somebody who was there and was perhaps more successful than them sitting on their shoulder the whole time so. It's very very difficult situation. I think you'd have a lot of ex-leader pitas find their way into leading a foundation for good works and so on but almost inevitably they get caught up in in what they used to do. I mean I think one of the one of the strongest conventions about not interfering not even commenting on your successor was in the United States. where past presidents were not not supposed supposed to say a word about their successor? But that's been broken barrack Obama who has been quite voluble On the subject of what he seizes uses the errors of Donald Trump's ways and on the one hand you know that's a lot of us who would say well you know good on him quite right for doing that on the other hand. I I think there's a very a very sensible place for this convention that says actually you should find something else to do or just imagine. Donald Trump defeated in November. I don't think he'll go silent silent.
