Schumer's Trillions by Tarzana Joe
"The senate's spending trillions but the house would like some more they want it to be five but they could compromise it for soon. They'll reach agreement but joe's signature won't end it or once. They've gone past it. It will be a job to spend it or if you stack them one by one dollars so finish forget it. It's a job that you would never ever finish. I've done the mathematics for my number challenged peers. Assuming they spend evenly across the next four years. Let's say it's just four trillion. Then they'll have to find a way to pay out two point seven billion each and every day in the dc universe who needs a superpower the drop one hundred million dollars each and every hour to act with such a dasan. I give them my respects but no one has the stamina to write out all those checks and like the seeds from cottonwoods. When summer windsor blowing no one has the auditors to track. Where it's all going margaret thatcher said it and i used to think it's funny the government could reach the end of other people's money budgets kept increasing and the government survived but the day that she envisioned. I think sadly has arrived so welcome to the green new deal inflation. That's unending all brought to you in the disguise of infrastructure spending. That's brewster's millions. I'm sorry schumer's trillions by tarzana. Joe
Scotland's Long Road to Independence
"My name's george. Miller and my guest this month is rory scoth on an edinburgh based writer who has an article this month. Addition of the paper entitled is scotland closer to independence. Rory is also co author of the book. Rock wins a treacherous guide to the state of scotland published. Twenty sixteen. And when. I spoke to him recently. I was kid to get his update. On the current state of scotland. The two thousand sixteen brexit referendum in which scotland voted strongly to remain in the eu. And boris johnson's twenty nine thousand nine hundred. Uk general election confirmed growing divide between how scotland and england see their respective futures. The scottish national party secured a fourth successive electoral victory in last month's scottish parliamentary elections but the path to independence is still far from straightforward. So where does the snp go from here in pursuit of that objective. We'll come onto that. But rory's piece begins with a comment margaret thatcher made in the nineteen eighties whereas she offered a vision of modernisation. She asserted her. Opponents wanted to turn the uk inter museum society. Rory rights thatcher underestimated the appeal of museum society labor overestimated last him. To tell me more was one of the key things to understand about. Thatcherism is that this was not a return to the nineteenth century. This walson the state stripping away all the gains of one thousand nine hundred eighty five. There was an element of -absolutely. But really it was something new the power of neoliberalism as i think a lot of people and left know very well. The power of neoliberalism was at a offered. Something new offered a form of progress that a lot of people on the left had thought until then the right could not offer. It offered a vision of the future. That kind of took the left by surprise. I think

"About the crown. The focus being on Margaret Thatcher. Just like like You can't that that can't be the conversation that you walk away from at least the first few episodes. With your just like, But what about Margaret Thatcher? What about market Because of how good it wasn't as I'm looking up all the stuff on the crown season for to your point. It all just keeps coming back to how fans were just in love with Gillian Anderson and I was thinking that's a tough That's tough to do, because think of the last person we saw play Margaret Thatcher. Was Meryl Streep. Yeah, Yeah, your lady and s So for her to be getting this awesome praises, really get me excited. They get started on season three so I can catch up. I'll tell you what Even better than that is watching her in a scene with Olivia Colman. The two of them together are just nailing it. It is just Splendid. Livia Coleman is just so great is the clean. Oh, great. I thought that Claire Foy, I was gonna sort of sad whenever they transition, But then it was like, wait a minute. This is perfect. So good. They're both perfect. That's why we haven't started it yet. Because that that was the initial thing that we were a little bit bummed about Claire Foy not being a part of it, And so that diminished our excitement. One season three came out and then one thing leads to another. So you'll be playing here. You say that It's so good, Steve and then and also you just I actually liked the last season season. Three makes is my favorite season so far, because you just really get to the heart of her. And if it forces her to because of certain things that happen. It forces her to open up her heart a little bit. Yeah, you know, And there's some funny lines in there that if you're paying attention, you'll catch and you'll go. Oh my gosh, It's hilarious, you know, like self deprecating kind of stuff. They're just they're They're they're casting is spot on. Yeah, but they have awards for casting directors. That's untrue. They should Donna, right? They must have some kind of industry. Yeah. Might be a behind the scenes pasties. The cast even someone that I love it anyway. Hurry up, Steve, catch up. I will. You're falling. We could talk to Alexis about it. She hasn't started the third season either. That's my girl Should just do a recap of season three, where the two people with like babies similar age.

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.

"And lots of more money and and he wants the family to up root from the United States, England and two a day Apt to this rambling, huge manor house on We know that something's about to unfold here when we're told that this is the fourth with the families made in 10 years. So anyway, this story takes place in 1986, which is smack dab in the middle of the Reagan Me first presidency in the ultra conservative British government of Margaret Thatcher. So you have the United States and England with that back those political backgrounds operating and I know this sounds very unsexy, but the movie is a critique. Of American capitalism and materialism, but also at turns. It is both riveting and completely absorbing as a movie, a drama and a rattling good tale that I mean this was a good Movie and what the film critic of Judith Crist used to call a movie movie. It's all about wanting more and wanting more on how corrosive that mindset can become for the family unit when it's one person's prime measurement for success, and then and then, in addition, packed it being this just adult but your piece of cinema, it plays very metaphoric. And illustrative to me of the greed and the emphasis today in the world. Maybe it's always been this way. We're just noticing him or not, because of the nature of the times we're living in. But this notion of money and wanting more thinking that the more you have the better off you'll be blah, blah, blah. And and how this movie I liked how this movie this story unsurprisingly, circles right back around to that question. How much is enough? And I love that this movie dramatize this theory of mine that when when money so heavily relied upon in a relation Ship Heavy reliance upon that money can invariably mask or cover up. What's going on within the relationship on a deeper, deeper level, And it's good to have money, of course, and people, you know you're gonna have somebody would you rather have money or not? Of course you're gonna say yes, I'd rather have the money. But it could be a trap like a drug, and it could make it easier to ignore something that maybe ought to be looked at. But it's easier not to look at it because you don't have to. I love The thing about this movie, The performances are uniformly great. The script is insightful and the direction I mean the direction is absolutely top notch and I cannot recommend it enough. It's It's one of those mature pieces of of cinema that you know I'm I came across when you're watching so many movies throughout the year, and a movie like this comes along it remind you why you write and talk about movies in the first place, and why you love them so much and and what movies can be at their finest. Uh, yeah. Upon first blush this this'll looks like what is this the nest But really, I recommend that people check it out. I think they will be very, very surprised. It's just It's just superb and it begins streaming next. Tuesday. I'm sorry, obvious digital platforms, but it's It's a really good. It's one of these dramas that serious but it's not depressing. I saw it. I saw it is ultimately an optimistic, uh, story about somebody kind of realizing maybe what they've been doing and who they are and how they've been, You know, just contributing to the negativity in this relationship, But I don't know. I mean this different ways to read the ending, but I thought it was just absolutely wonderful, Great, called the nest. I'm definitely going to see that one. And then when you come back next week, we'll have to remember to talk about Borat. We're all yet. Okay? We will do that. And I'm kind of glad we kind of were able re ran out of time. And we'd we kind of were able to avoid this. That of them will be which we won't say. You know, the one I'm talking about? Yes, I dok because I would avoid that one. Let's let people wonder what that is, until next week. Okay. Always great to talk with you. Tim's website again. It's celluloid dreams that net you could also follow him on Facebook..

"Where off her actions and how they relate to Other women in her universe than Potentially Margaret Thatcher was, for instance. Well, I appreciate that. And just one more question before you go now, you know, we were talking to Claire Foy when she started on the crown, and we talked a little bit about how the queen was sort of this unknowable person to her, and then She developed a great empathy for the queen through playing her. And you know, we were talking earlier about the complexity of playing someone like market Thatcher and how polarizing she was just too some I wonder if you could relate to that did play Margaret Thatcher perhaps give you more empathy for who she was as a person. I'm not sure if empathy is the right word. I would probably say and understanding for how she became the woman that she became She she was a self made woman. She she grew up in a very frugal household, and her father was a no alderman, And she helped in the Hay was a grocer, and she was a grocer's daughter, and she helped Shop, and and so she, um On. They were incredibly religious. It was a Methodist household. And so when, when you understand all of that, it's easier to understand where she's come from and how she got to the world that she created for herself. And so I think it's just it's understanding. It's not that it's not necessarily compassion. It's not necessarily empathy. I think you can understand how she became who she became Andre yet Still, you know, disagree with a lot of the things that she might have done, and yet at the same time, be impressed by her brain or her work ethic or the fact that she was a woman of stature at that particular time, so Yeah, she's she's She's complicated, and I think it's important to that The Syrians embraces All of her complexities well, and as it does throughout the whole series, Gillian Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. Gillian Anderson plays former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the upcoming season of the Crown. Season. Four premieres Friday, November 15th on Netflix..

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.

"Voters in northern England and Wales gave conservatives a majority not seen since the days of Reagan and Margaret Thatcher with three hundred and sixty five seats and labor it's a worst defeat since before World War two with just two hundred and three working class voters rejected the promises by labor leader Jeremy Corbett fox's Leland Vitor Johnson calls a landslide victory irrefutable and on or
Boris Johnson faces a country that is still divided but how does the future look?
"Simon British prime minister Boris Johnsons Conservative Party swept the elections this week in the UK Johnson now says he has a powerful mandate to get brexit done the terms on which Britain leave the European Union are still uncertain the prime minister faces a country that is still divided them pulling at it seems we tornado in Paris Frank Lange fit in London Frank thanks so much for being with us Hey good morning Scott prime minister Johnson party when the biggest majority for conservative governments and Margaret Thatcher what does that mean immediately for brexit overseas right press is going to happen in fact he will happen very soon he didn't have the votes before that's why he called the selection and he has a really big majority but as you point out the future isn't clear like what's this relationship going to be going for they're gonna have to work on a free trade deal and the interesting thing is I think a lot of people who wanted the you can stay inside the you are very disheartened by this huge majority the Boris Johnson got on the other hand it actually freeze of Boris Johnson to be able to maybe have a closer economic relationship with the E. U. going forward once they leave because he's not beholden to sort of the heart rate was party now anymore the ones who really don't like Europe and so I think it's gonna be really interesting to see Scott is what kind of future Boris Johnson forges now that he has this political freedom he have to negotiate this trade deal with the E. U. N. has extremely time yeah he said he's not going to ask for an extension so is in is there still a possibility of an ideal direction you know Wednesday I might have said that before this vote it's now that he has all these big numbers I actually think that he's gone back on things he's he's made these pledges and then going back on them I think that he probably has the political capital to extend again if he needs to and certainly if he wants a good complex and comprehensive deal he's going to need an extension the idea of doing this in eleven months with the European Union is nobody in Brussels believes that's possible so I I think that the cliff edge that we are expecting maybe at the end of next year he can probably work its way through and then there's the challenge of of what's going on in Scotland because of course the Scottish National Party ran the table did very well in the election on a platform of opposing breaks it and they're claiming their own mandate for a new referendum on Scottish statehood that's going to be a challenge to it's a big challenge and I think that what you're going to see is nickel sturgeon head of Scottish National Party asking for another referendum Boris Johnson has said under no circumstances and in order for that referendum to be real to actually have an effect here it has to be approved by the U. K. government ought to have that kind of referendum what I think is gonna be interesting as you go and get into twenty twenty one of the Scottish parliamentary elections and if the S. and P. does well then it's going to put a lot of pressure on Boris Johnson to continue to refuse this request from you know what look like from the Scottish people themselves if they keep voting in this direction the other thing though that's really interesting Scott as you look at the European Union you know the Scottish National Party says we we want to leave the U. K. and and rejoin the U. we never want to leave in the first place is the European Union gonna be willing to take a Scotland back it does not want to be encouraging countries breaking up so it's very complicated in the next I think the next couple of years are going to be very important see what happens in Scotland for the future of the United Kingdom prime minister Johnson has vowed to get this all done by January thirty one twenty twenty is that possible yeah it's full steam ahead now now that he has this majority it's gonna be opposite of the paralysis that you know I've been talking about last he's got the numbers he's parlance gonna re open next week he's going to introduce his what has been a failed brexit withdrawal agreement up until this point and it should easily pass and I think everyone's expectation is at the end of January the U. K. is out of the U. and Paris Frank blanket thanks so
Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn says he won't lead party in another UK election but won't quit right away
"Prime minister. Boris Johnson has won a sweeping decisive and powerful majority of parliamentary seats. It's in a mandate to deliver brexit ballots tallied through the night affirmed that Johnson and his Conservative Party had achieved a smashing success. The largest wind for the Tories since Margaret Thatcher prevailed a third time in nineteen eighty seven. The opposition Labor Party suffered its worst defeat since the mid in nineteen thirties. Friday morning with just one constituency still to declare the Conservatives have won three hundred sixty four spots in the six hundred fifty seat parliament Labor's Labour's hard left leader. Jeremy Corbyn announced he will not lead his party in any future general election campaign but said he intends to stick around for a little while. During a period of reflection in transition Johnson the bombastic showman who led the campaign to leave the European Union back in June twenty sixteen referendum is now positioned to be the prime minister to see Britain set sail from Europe next month and dreams of a second referendum and of remaining being in the EU have been dashed president trump. Who made little effort to hide? His partiality toward Johnson during the election tweeted his congratulations. Johnson in the Conservatives ran as populists offering not only brexit but also spending surged for cops nurses schools in elder care. One of their strategies was to try to break breakthrough. What's called Labor's Red Wall of traditional support among the working class voters in faded industrial towns in England's north and Midland's? This strategy was a stunning success. The Tories won the town of Workington. For example WORKINGTON has been held by Labour without without a blip since nineteen eighteen voters. They're told our reporters they wanted brexit and they didn't trust Corbin Johnson this morning in his his victory speech specifically addressed voters who went conservative for the first time ever in this election. He promised he won't take their support for granted with the Conservatives primed to extend their rain from twenty ten and tell twenty twenty four assuming Johnson serves his full five-year term Labor is looking at years in the wilderness us. It was a grim night to the Anti Brexit Liberal Democrats whose leader Jo Swinson lost her seat to a candidate from the Scottish National Party. Thirty indeed nationalist party saw big gains in Scotland and Northern Ireland
UK set for Brexit election with Boris Johnson hoping to retain power
"Now four days until the United Kingdom goes to vote in the second general election in two years. Can you hear the fatigue in my voice. The opinion polls which ought to be taken with very generous pinch of salt suggest. The Conservative Party led by. Boris Johnson stands to be elected. Well one of those sprinkling salt. Is Vince Samakuva his. UK's correspondent fear news following every twist and turn. And if I sound fatigued Vincent you must be exhausted. It's been a long campaign going around the country. I mean this campaign started in August. It's been quite strange for UK election which normally short five week one but this effectively began in August. And it's yeah are. There is definitely a sense of weariness around the country and we all three days before he goes to the elections on Thursday and just looking at the headlines this this morning and the and the headlines over the weekend it seems to be still such a messy scene. There's no one great winner. I mean many suggestion that the Conservatives services are ahead in the opinion polls but the unpredictability of this I think is perhaps what is confusing and exhausting so many people. Yeah it is and I think that's going to be some really interesting factors in play coming up so one thing which any partial tally. The big thing is the weather so looking ahead of the weather here in London Thursday. It's wet all all day but it isn't that cold. The cold is the thing that many parties were worried about because who are the most reliable bank voters anywhere in the world the elderly and the colder it is and the more difficult it is for them to vote the more the less likely arts turn out one caveat on that is that they normally they have their own vehicles so they can drive themselves to the polls young people as well often deterred by whether and if it's very wet and they've got to get public transport they might not bother and I think something that I'm noticing around the country is. I think we might have a slightly lower turnout and there is a sense of fatigue and inevitability creeping in about Boris Johnson. Getting a majority. Ah I mean you said it's going to be hold. I've taken the liberty of looking up the weather forecast while you were saying that I mean if you're in hull which is in the northeast of England. It's going to be raining and four all day. I mean that's that's it's an indoor play day for me. As far as I can gather could be worse. I mean thinking about recent winters you dave. We could be a lot worse but yeah it. It isn't it isn't going to be pleasant and I think that's going to have a really interesting impacts on the get out the vote campaign get out the vote but also who is likely to. which way is that lately says suspending voices if you're going to get The weather actually having an impact on on the way that people whether people go out and who they decide to vote for it it definitely is a test of how well the policies ground games are running running because when you work in these parties a big thing they do is when they going door to door they own just asking you how you're voting. They're often asking how you get into the polls and they will do community bus round so if they go down the street and they find that Ethel number sixty five and Tommy number sixty four want to go and vote. But they don't don't have their own vehicle transport they will sort out within the local association that the bus will go down that street to certain time pick up all those people take them to the polls and drop them back. So it's an interesting thing is a massive logistical operation to get people out. That's the logistical side. Let's turn onto the political side. What is the state of play with three days to go? So the Tories have they firm and solid ten point lead in the national polls which would give them a majority between forty to fifty seats if they are to be believed. That is the largest since is Margaret Thatcher in one thousand nine hundred seven one caveat to that is the first election referendum this election debate on a couple of weeks ago Borsch Johnson won by fifty fifty one percent to forty nine percent on Fridays. Pretty Dire Debate those down in maidstone. The Paula came out of that said the Washington won by fifty two percent and Jeremy Corbyn won by forty eight percent. This is a country which is split right down the middle as with the same figures for the brexit referendum. The problem is that U K calculation relation of seats is so difficult because of our first-past-the-post-system every seat has different dynamics working in it. Now the problem for the Tories is that they might worry that their vote is complacent and they might not turn out and deliver that majority that they're being predicted by intention because people think well it sorted and there is still the room for major gas. Now Boris Johnson is as we speak in grimsby at a fish market. He is doing tour of the so-called red wool so he is hitting labor. ABC's in the Midlands in Yorkshire in the Northeast in North Wales and the north west of the next three days in an absolute blitz. Because he thinks now because because the brexit party stepped down which I think is the defining moment of this general election in the three hundred and seventeen seats to theresa may one in two thousand seventeen. They are now taking most of those as banked and they're taking the fight out to labor even in Scotland where look like at the beginning of the election the SNP could take almost all the seats but one one they are now looking at holding on at about eight supports Johnson citing signs. Take the fights to the Labor Party and Jeremy Corbyn on the other side is going to be doing a campaign like the last one where he's trying to have big rallies all up and down the country but really. I mean Jeremy Corbyn has not broken through in this general election and the people. I'm speaking to the past couple of weeks. Weeks Germany Corbin's brand was was kind of very is kind of selective taste in twenty seventeen. It didn't win the sensor Eh but it pulled in people from around the left who previously haven't voted Labour because it wasn't left enough for them and then he got Jerry Evans brand in the past two years has been severely. I mean this issue of antisemitism has not gone away his handling of it. This election has been poor even last week. You know when he was on this morning With Julianne with Juliette. TV TV. He just he's not he's getting angry about it. And that's not helping and the public obsolete confused and baffled by his brexit position the accusations that emerged over the weekend that the the way that the media has actually handcuffed handled this campaign has not been ideal given the fact that before the election. Everybody said that party politics no longer really work in the way that they used to that. Everybody somebody who's now not Labour or conservative Liberal Democrat but they were remain or leave but the way that the election coverage has been played out has reverted to the type and you get the other party such as Liberal Democrats the Greens and Indeed Brexit party being marginalized although some might suggest that the Brexit potties and a very nice the amount of coverage this this season. What would you say to that? I mean. It's very tricky. I mean the media navel-gazing at itself Alpha's how is covering the election. The problem is that in twenty ten because we haven't ever had TV debates for in this country and they've been talked about for decades. The three remained broadcast this guy that we've seen ICN worked solidly together in Lockstep to secure the debates and it was. You can't sign up for one you have to sign up for all three and that is where Nick Clegg. The Liberal Democrat got his big break in in terms of publicity but didn't translate into any more seats in fact lost two seats because of the way our system system works now in every election since then the cool after that was that there should be some kind of independent authority like the electoral commission which determines the structure Russia and the setting and the dates of each of those debates. That hasn't worked. It's basically now being the parties have played the broadcasters off each other and I think they in this election action you know it's really descended chaos. Sky Didn't even get a debates and very quietly backed away from it is TV and the BBC's got their first ever to lead head to head debate. Who will be the prime minister? And then there's been a bit of a smorgasbord of other debates and it. has you know an and politicians say that it takes. It's the kind of the prep work for it. It can take the steam out of the campaigning and it's not a traditional campaign the alternative that is actually more people. Get to see what you're about. And if you're just popping about each constituency constituency but the real question is you know apart from the normal media which you know kind of will sort itself out and there'll be lots of picking out the thing that is still going under the radar is the social media side. We do not you do. There hasn't used in past elections in two thousand fifteen seventeen you'd get an op note. That said our our new Election Billboard will be unveiled. Come and see on a bus and you'd get a random member cabinet standing in front of it pulling a curtain them but that isn't happening anymore and so on on the dry hair. I saw the first few billboards on electronic billboards from the conservatives who gonNA spend basically big in this final week absolutely blitz. And every time I went on youtube the weekend the pre roll advert was one from the Conservatives. The danger in this election and this kind of new age is we. Don't get to see anymore anymore. What everyone else does you? And I are being targeted by different adverts to what the conservative done. And it's very much the vote leave playbook the campaign campaign two thousand sixteen that Dominic Cummings masterminded is they have in the in the in the long campaign tested out different adds to see what get the most reaction and then in the final few days whatever has done and best of the thousands that they were putting out of different variations of adverts mycotoxin whatever's done best then becomes the big national. One of the next three days are going to be the moment when we see how the campaigns are really pushed then yeah it will be. It will be the kind of headline messages from Boston so I think just WanNa pick out what he said yesterday. Today on on Sky News into this is this could be a line from two thousand sixteen and this is the vote leave playbook he was saying we want to bed down in migration particularly unskilled work is You've seen a large number of people coming from the whole of the EU. Five hundred eighty million population trying to dredge up scary figure of all these people could suddenly rock up at David Tomorrow and saying in this line I was really struck.

France sells off national lottery as economic reforms continue
"Let's get the nicest business and financial news from Lewis Kupa. Welcome back Louise at. We begin with the French state lottery a bastion of French culture about to be sold off.

That's what she did. She stayed sold off all the many state institutions solutions British Gas British Telecom and. It seems that the French have caught on about forty fifty years forty years later. So he's done is he. So the French law trees you say. Full says does your yet and he gave so the French state used to throughout virtually all of it and he sold fifty two percent of the company which is a huge public offering biggest. IPO initial public offering. Since two two thousand in France in two thousand five in France raising one point nine billion euro. He gave French voters much. Better deal the institutional shareholders so they bought the shares at a much lower price. They've also got another discount as well. And if the French Voters keep the shares for more than eighteen months. Get another free share for every ten bought share price. What twenty percent in day one so effectively? He's given the French voters a nice big paycheck pricing. It too low and sort of convincing them of of privatizations in the capitalist model exactly like factor she did however Monsieur McCall has got a lot further to go in economic reform in France Thatcher. Did it he so far had failed to and whenever we choice he gets the the the yellow vest protests also despite the fact it was a massive. RPO It sort of pails. The amount of money raised east one point. Nine Billion Euro Pales into insignificance given the size of the French state debt. Two point four trillion million euro of debt. The French government has racked up and it hasn't won a budget surplus since nineteen seventy four. So he's got a very long way This is boosted his capitalist credentials. But he's a very long way to making much needed structural economic reform in his country.

I will ask the congress help in combining many of these agents isn't a new energy department to bring order out of chaos. Congressional leaders have already been working on this for quite a while. We must face the fact that the shortage is permanent. We must face. The fact that the energy shortage is permanent quote back to the IBD editorial, which is up on larryelder dot com last week, the US export more oil than we import it for the first time in seventy plus years, and it happened not because of decades of federal energy policies.

"What China wants. They want to defied western alliances. Through bits and bytes, not bullets and bombs. He threatened that the US might not share as much information with Britain. If it continues down this road with China. Well to understand what this could mean for the US UK relationship, we are joined by Sebastian pain of the financial times from their newsroom in London. Welcome twelfth things considered high after pump halo may be remarks. You tweeted that these were extraordinary words warning that the whole US UK special relationship, not just intelligence sharing is potentially endanger here is this really that fundamental a threat to the US UK relationship. Well, that's exactly what Mr. Pompeo was saying when he came to London yesterday that he talked about the day and information sharing aspect and the threat that if who is involved in the five network thought might be affected, but he also made this is about why alliance is an how the UK sees its relationship with the US in the future. And yet he said that the special relationship is thriving. So. It seems you can't both be right. This is not just a question about day to and intelligence. This is about what is strategic alliances, Mr. Pompeo channel the legacy and memory of Margaret Thatcher to say, could you imagine the I and lady doing this. And he's was not really so whether it's on intelligence about and vote on trade, he's trying to push the u k in a certain direction towards America. How does that over in the UK when an American of political leader says, I know better than you do what your conservative icon. Former prime minister Margaret Thatcher would have done in this situation. It touched the hearts of many conservatives. He is Margaret Thatcher still revered amongst most of the conservative party. They see her as the first or second greatest, prime minister of recent times and to ease amaze government as incredibly weak. It has very little sense of leadership all strategic direction every time on the woods, Margaret Thatcher. It creates missed over. For the eyes of MP. So when Mike Pompeo did it famous remind people I s we've made the decision here. Maybe we need to be thin kit. Do you think Mike Pompeo has a point that if China does play this role in Britain's five G network, there is a potential security and intelligence threat? Do you think it's a legitimate concern? I think it is. And there's lots of MP's which sat at consecutive come out and said that this is the wrong decision. It appears to ease. Amazed government has made. But these things own quite clear cut because Hawaii is already involved in the UK's four G network. So if you want to ripple that up thousands of a huge, the cost the inexpensive system to do that. So if this deal with China is a potential threaten national security and intelligence and the potential threat to the relationship with the United States. Why does the u k want to continue it because Hawas is thought to be safe by the UK's intelligence and security officials. They believe that any threat from the Chinese stay via Hawalli can be contained. And of course, the u k as it leaves the EU wants to strike free trade is with other countries. He's and Hawaii is a precise example of the potential benefits, but also some of the trade offs. It'll come without challenge.

Why would you want to undermine bars credibility, and that's exactly because he made it very clear that he is looking into these things he wants to know how this investigation got started to see if this the counterintelligence aspects of these were predicated on on real facts and evidence, and maybe they weren't maybe they weren't. He says he wants to look into it. The Democrats are trying to undermine his credibility. Before that happens. Devin newness says the fact that the FBI was spying on the Trump campaign. Mitch wants to know how many spies how many times did they do this?

"Of what they earn actually causes the economy to grow. They can't afford for that to take hold. Every time. I mentioned this people say to me rush. Did you tell me that Reagan's massive tax rate reductions caused revenue to the government to double? Yes, almost was like from five hundred billion to four hundred ninety five almost eight hundred ninety nine hundred trillion. So it was close to doubling. And people say well, but but delivers like big government. Why don't they accept that? Why don't they like the fact that lowering taxes creates all this new money because it's not about funding government because they don't care whether the governments in debt or not what they care about is being able to talk about fairness, and unfairness and envy, and the Democrats know that when you're talking about the rich and the middle class. There's about a thousand times more middle class people in there are rich. In other words thousand two thousand times more middle class voters than there are rich voters. And so you keep bashing the rich even though tax cuts generate all kinds of new money for Washington. I've even heard Democrats it's not about that. It's about the rates it's unfair that some guys only paying twenty eight percent when he's secretary's pink twenty-five is not fair. That doesn't sound right. Mabel, you know, what? Well, we're doing great here maple. But maybe some other people are out there. This is how it all builds on itself. Well at some point. As Margaret Thatcher. Always said, the socialists are going gonna run out of other people's money. At some point your taxation of the rich stops being taxation becomes confiscation you when you start taking seventy percent of what people earned even if it's the marginal rate, and I don't have time to explain explain what marginal rates, but the seventy percent marginal rate is not seventy percent on everything except for certain people. It is if you make right now over I think a million or a million and a half you pay the top rate on every dollar, you earn. You don't pay ten percent on the first five thousand twenty eight percent of the next thirty thousand those are the brackets those are the margins the top margin is seventy percent. They want it to be at some point. People are going to stop paying it. They're going to leave. They're going to do whatever they can to avoid being financially. Raped like that.

"This there was a statue of margaret thatcher at the guildhall gallery in two thousand and two which somebody looked the head off why does she arouse such passion still do you think eighteen away like she she she was divisive she stood divisive and there are some trends in this society that's still are the same as when when she was prime minister and who are still still very much alive and she was polarizing already when she was prime minister what really impresses me the passion that that still exist around her but you it is weird one joins because it's it's very easy to imagine how this argument is going to play out on social media and doubtless already is people saying you shouldn't put up a start you off because only happen to disagree with politics should i mean the thing is even if you do though it she was without any doubt a transcendent and important figure what whether you would have voted for or not should therefore she get the statue and should people who don't like it just concentrate more on buildings touches of someone they do look yeah i think one of the remarkable elements to this story bit buried in is the fact that this was originally meant to be going in and that was discovered that that wasn't going to happen and therefore new home had to be found for this statue and which is why we talking about it being in in grantham quite frankly if someone who was you know was three elections stay for eleven years if that doesn't warrant a statue irrespective of party i'm not quite sure what does and as you point out those people who disagree with her frenetic this is a democracy let's build a statue to people who they support i'm no problem with that whatsoever but the idea that you cannot put a statute to manga thatcher in this country without risk of it being defaced and joining the long line of statues in this country which have been defaced recently which is graceful movement i think is quite frankly remarkable state of affairs in this country florence doesn't change the meaning of a statue though if you have to put it up on the big plant covered by didn't floodlights presumably surrounded by fences and wire it says a lot i mean there's that you as a james said what's supposed to be erected in london and they knew that would be too many security measures to take to to keep it there i mean just means that it reminds me of another statue which by the way you were going to ask us what's our favorite sent you a wall of sebah move on years of i mean he used to be the the prison of turkmenistan and he arrested this fantastic statue plated gold plated revolving run roy the revolving one like that would revolve so that she can face the sun all around the day any toes standing on a seventy meters high systems just like myself in the job so i guess the the state of the democracy of the country is maybe proportional to the heights of this that you will stand so that you don't join florence there's no minority in the revolving gold plated statue of supplement news of the do you have a particular favorite political statue of your own says a great local radio question it's really making me wish we had a phone in capacity movie playing jets and that i i mean also since in all seriousness i think the lincoln memorial in washington d._c.'s is magnificent statue to someone who and if we're talking about divisive individuals here's someone who led the united states through the civil war if any statue is likely to be attacked by those from the old south it's that and yet it remains untouched unsullied and a testament to to the nation into the the man who led it through the civil war i i have a soft spot myself and this is.
