"middle europa" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing

"I'm Carlotta Rabelo producer of the urban I'll be talking today about how lockdown has changed the way people move around in cities as New York, announcers twenty new miles of bus lanes. Thanks very much Carlotta all that coming up right here on the briefing with me and talk. While, we begin today's program monocle headquarters in Zurich. editor-in-chief Tyler Bray is out the ready. Nice speech, Tyler how you doing today Andrew. Very good I'm hoping that you've got sun in London. You're sending our way because it's. It's been incredibly wintery. I was promised. A lovely outdoor dinner in Basel last night on the river that didn't happen. It felt like we were hunkering down in in March like conditions. Was Kind of interesting here at the moment Andrew. From a as you said at the start this middle. Europa perspective you also promising, it'd be delivering the main headlines and not quite sure about that, but we'll see where we get over the next few minutes bought I. Think we're we're now sort of you. Coming up to a month of restaurants and everything having having been open, and and you see this collapsing of course of social distance, and that a lot of very strange rules that had been put in, and and this is going to be with the rest of the world, because as you know, people have measures that they have to abide by. But then it depends on WHO's managing a shift in a restaurant. How is that team interpreting it so so oddly? Last night at dinner we were. We had to sort of take our drinks off of a trade. It was nice. It was a really lovely dinner. There were no masks gloves. There was the odd screens it was. It was a lovely environment So so your waiter delivers the the the. They couldn't give us. The wine menu's very important they said yes. You have to go to your phone to look at those. And then you would, but then they could make some suggestions. Of course they brought the ones. You had to take the wine off the tray, but then you ask for condiments, they could bring you the condiments. Obviously not to contest. Go the wine, so it's just so all of these different and then of course. We see all of these other curious things happening right now we start con- contradict so many of these various safety measures, and it was interesting. One of the the you know the gentleman I was talking to. He was saying that you know one of the great fear. Is that you know that they have is also then if if and hopefully not, but if a second wave does come then how're people going to react and respond because right now? We're in lifting mode. And how seriously are we going to take things? Unless? Of course they're really forced upon us but then, of course we've seen obviously over the last few weeks as well. You can go, and you're GONNA. Protest in every other. You know all kinds of things and there's not much the police can do about it either. And and is interesting I the weather is in great things. But. I was quite excited those accessible. There were saying here in London. For example. They're going to copy you what you've done in Zurich. Personally but the whole city I. Believe Well, you site cafe, but they're going to say for example in Soho. They're gonNA. Make it mostly pedestrian say. Your tables outside spread outside with bars and things, and that's the way that you'll get going, but if the weather's. This seems a little less exciting, but here I think it's mix and match. Some people are very cautious. You can tell about social distancing and. Older people seem to have taken to mosque wearing wherever they go, and other people are just getting on with, and as as you say, an really interesting tipping point. We had the dominic coming story. We weren't going to again, but we also had. Many of these black lives matters marches here. The weekend and once wants had sounds of people. Gathering together is very hard than sales people, but you mustn't going to your mother because you only if you speak over the hedge or something. I. Think it has broken down here in the last few days as a sense of people and show what the rules are, and they realize you're not gonNA. Get scolded for so you might as well just kind of make up as you go along. No, no, that's absolutely we're witnessing and so many places. They obviously much. I think there's probably a lot of people who are cringing who are sitting in health ministries right now and I think you know after of course, we, we've seen protests on a variety of different topics, and even beyond black lives matter. What is GonNa happen are rb going to see some type of of spike or or will even be able to to be measured. In this moment or not, will will we'll have to see, but I think going back to what you were saying about also taking over the streets out from a business point of view. This is there's another sort of side here. As as numbers are dropping, and and these measures, of course are being lifted. I think a lot of people are also fearful that they're you know if times are okay. If they collapse social distancing they now you have to remove all of the chairs from the street as well. This is my great fear because. It's been fantastic being able to occupy. The urban environment, a little bit more So of course we want everyone to. We want things to improve. Also like to say yeah, you know, you can keep those extra seven or eight tables out there now. What a topic! We always come to you about because more than anybody else aviation we know. The lots of airlines are sending US their. Their their schedules and even encouraging us to book for Twenty Twenty One. Are We, getting moving me not gets me to Asia Bureau. Chief this morning James Chambers said in Hong Kong. They've just told them is going to be. September before lift quarantine and Fiona said that she had just gone out of Tokyo, and as she someone told her off and said actually Tokyo. People are not meant to travel, and we're GONNA be keeping the city under lockdown for another couple of weeks before you even meant go. Go to other cities in Japan. How much mobility is getting going? Do you think we spoil it all? And then you saw my propose travel schedule yesterday I did I did have Hong Kong on it and Tokyo and one of our former colleagues told me today, he said yes, he said you'd Tyler because if you're happy to sort of pace around a hotel room, you want to be in the upper house for two weeks. Come on down now, so yeah, it's true we have. We've seen a lot of airlines. Andrew announcing a long haul routes opening up for sure, and of course this does have to happen so certainly on the content Austin Airlines Zena this morning. Saying okay, we're from the started July. We're going to be going back to BANGKOK GOING TO CHICAGO GOING TO WASHINGTON. you see out of. Of Out of Switzerland Swiss get very aggressive schedule. I mean almost daily flights again back into a lot of cities as well. There seems to a huge focus that maybe this is we talk about air bridges, and where the first places that are going to open up Andrew. It's probably going to be a lot of a lot of European cities, and it's going to be traveled eastbound. Into Asia because obviously. Again depending on quarantines as well, but also I think it's GonNa be probably quite a while until might be some magic happening at embassies with bilateral agreements, etcetera, but I I don't I don't think the US is going to be opening up. And anytime soon, but here here's the flipside of it, though to the German government also has announced though fine great tons flying, but also we, we have a travel warning out on one hundred sixty countries now. That doesn't mean you can't go, but if there is a travel warning, it does mean it's quite likely that your insurance company isn't going to be covering you either, or if something goes very wrong the Germans aren't going to be sending in liftoff, a planes to to evacuate you either I look on. 'em All sites to see. How could send my ammos the other day? I think you can go everywhere suddenly. They seem to have availability wherever you want to go, but finally TV rent relief. Initiatives been important in every city about how businesses navigate through these chubby times and getting some assistance. The Swiss have been pretty good on this. wh-whereas, the story got to well we. We heard And, and we touched on at this at a federal council level. Maybe she's rewind a little bit of course. Switzerland is still under this extraordinary sort of measures time, which means in many dishes, decisions are now have really sort of filtered upwards towards burn. They're being taken at a federal level, not cancel or city level and one of the things that of course, the federal government wanted to address was what you do with all of the shops. Of course they were forced to close down all of the services that were forced to close down pretty much for two months. And so there is there is general agreement right now that If you were forced, and you really had no way of functioning business, then you will get sixty percent off of your rents Aso. Yes, saying to to the to the shop owners, et Cetera, the service owners and providers, yet you just have to.

"middle europa" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing

"Next thirty minutes right here on the briefing with me. Todd really well good afternoon from yet. A Sunny Zurich again and again The weather continues to be absolutely gorgeous at this time of year. We've quite a bit to get through over the next twenty nine minutes or so. We want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland. Which is you know punches. Well above its weight when it comes to global headquarters for I say European headquarters for many of these TECH COMPANIES. The facebooks and people like that that is also.

it has now passed South Africa the only other nation to publicly express an interest ahead of one of the biggest boxing matches in a recent history that about a state athletic commission has decided to keep the on say while the and Tyson fury apart at Friday's weigh in the pay was shopping each other during the final press conference has been a lot of build up to this fight around the world and I've been asking the B. B. C.'s addy out of the one who's in Las Vegas full this fight what the thinking behind that is so that about a state athletic commission have decided that they'll be in our face off because of the shenanigans that happens at the press conference edit this week where the two men were involved in pushing each other it did feel like it was slightly orchestrated some of the bands are on the name court it was pantomime but signed some of it went beyond what you would expect to sell a fight I'm even I sense about three rows back from the stage another point that I think don't they while that was gonna punch class of very old the other way around so it felt slightly orchestrated which is why it's a bit of a surprise that the Nevada state athletic commission I have decided to take this decision not to allow them to stand face to face and looking ahead to the fight itself fury during that meeting you and talking about that called it the biggest heavy weight class for fifty years that might be slightly of hyping it but if so by how much it's a very big deal because that verifies that everything yet drama out controversy on and off downsizing fury looks like he was out in the fall from what he got up and ready to at least on the lot of people because it was so dramatic it drew in casual thank you for that on the study followed boxes yes see this fight while the said this week that he doesn't really get the recognition that it is up to the United States because there are so many other sports happening so it's an important fight is not just for the defense of his WBC title but also for his legacy because security is a name here in the United States people are pretty gravitated towards it is a very open about the path was he's had in his private life with issues of mental health of the question are people really warm so that's so here's a spot here so I've while the work to be here it will get his thought through the roof starts an important part their hair not just the defense of his title but also his legacy I think it's been an open question the last couple of years who is the best heavy weight boxer in the world how far will this fight go to finally on soaring that question the general consensus is that younger wallet size if you intensity Josh right the three best everywhere in the world now I've been a judge Royce perhaps the most marketable generates the most money is he the best boxer well we don't want to get into the ring with either while the fury what we would like to see is the winner of this fight dance break in at the juncture out some points because once it's great having three tramp gets what's actual plans you want someone to speak to charge you like you get a layer of Lennox Lewis he found a Harley still we see that one name at the top of the version of the other doing from last Vegas and I can tell you that the bookmakers Kunkel either there is no favorite full face Astros thinking let's get answered on now on Newsday is renowned for its red light district but now the city council is considering moving parts of it indoors to a sex hotel or an erotic sensor in an effort to get rid of nuisance Taurus the plans are available and Saddam's men from Kate has some of the consulting with sex workers tourists and locals let's speak now to city council done why lance welcome to Newsday so talk about sex so total six sensor why is it needed I mean I'm Saddam is renowned for the red light district he's had enough of it and you will get morning thanks for having me on your program I think it's been clear now that for several years the residents of the neighborhood at the red light district where I believe it or not as the four thousand people still live there and they have increasingly been struggling with the influx of tourists that ms be eight that that's a the streets that even gonna calls nuisance to the sex workers so the red light district where was in fact the residential neighborhoods many years I was quiet but that was also inhabited by the sex workers has increasingly become like a tourist theme park and this development has been going on for some years now and it's about time that we do something to really help the residents at in their fight against a taking back there at the neighbor and tools that's the proper tools of the red light district are going to be bound on they from April first is gonna be fine supported on that one so to tell us about this hotel this six hotel red light United they represent the city's prostitutes they're opposed to shutting down the district they say window processes do not want to leave the red light district because they have no problem at all with the tourists who other main customers so what do you say to that well I do but there's been some debate about the question of whether the sex workers actually earn money from the service or if the fact that so many stars up presents actually scare off the regular customers it's not really clear what the one of the science is that which one of the sites is correct but it has been seen office sometime back that the red light district is struggling with all kinds of these issues and several measures have been taken already but one of the latest developments is now to build an erotic center somewhere in the other in in in debt and different pontiff I'm spam which shoots serve as an alternative or a substitute for the red light district and this is really the question that still remains unanswered because in my opinion if you build an erotic center somewhere else in the city I'm Sam but you do not do anything about the press aliens of all the windows and the attractiveness of the windows that are currently present in the red light district most likely nothing nobody we'll go to Europe eccentric well it will be like a white elephant exactly but what they go anyway I mean the process you say we feel safe in one we don't want to work in such a hotel and what you're doing is I guess is bringing it out of the shadows I mean there's lots of is gonna be panic Boston's that's gonna be rooms for I know transgendered prostitutes as well but it it sounds like a bit of a kind of a shopping center for prostitution what would anybody want to use it well that is also another question that remains to be on and said but many of the things that you've just described girls are present in the current red light district include the panic buttons every thinks but it's also a matter of dealing with with issues regarding human trafficking because the official estimates about the number of prostitutes at up felt forced to work at the red light district the fed between ten and ninety percent so that all the official figures in other words we just don't know and one of the main issues also with moving the red light district.

"middle europa" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Stack

"Oh merry Christmas. This is a special edition of the stock live from the monocle Christmas market with me toddler today. Coming up. We'll review the year in print from newspapers to magazines under says, the state of the industry, and we'll also browse the culture pages, and our luxury correspondent will be here to guide us through the glossies. That's ahead on this very special edition the sack life in the model Christmas market here in London. Well, good morning. Good morning Tyler. It's open question. Rush this morning because of course, we had unexpected rain, and then this huge hive of activity, it's absolutely buzzing at Midori. It is I bumped into a guest John Owen? I was just back from a run. No one even told me because with you today, I've been I've had a shower and everything and I'm back with fifteen minutes. So all the bit of a surprise today. That's pretty impressive. That's next door to the office. Georgina sort of the star reviews now, isn't it? Absolutely. This is when we take time and and take stock and look back over the year. Of course, the thing that everybody's looking back at today is the life of president George H W Bush who died in the house of this morning, four AM. I think GMT that was around ten o'clock last night in in the states and lots of very moving tributes being paid him. But of course, that's not coming up in the newspapers just yet. That would be that'd be your your fair for for tomorrow morning's program for sure it's also amazing where you can be one week later because I was thinking like this time last week. We were we were in Zurich, we almost Gotcha the lake again. But it didn't quite happen. You say you've just been jogging. But last we can listen I'll have to tell you. It was freezing Cullens Eric swimming in the lakes. That's what happens in in in middle Europa. What have we got coming up today? A couple of really exciting guests in the studio with us. We have joined the deco who is from the London Evening Standard. And we have John Owen who is from the frontline club. But also huge force in journalism. I want to say forces that the right word jurors figures. Well, you can still be good morning, John. How are you? Good. We'll very very nice to see you. We'll we'll we'll be coming to of course, a series of the front pages as well. In a moment. And of course, joyless Eka will be commenting on that too. Hello. Thank you for coming in. I know that you'll very excited to be sitting near the baby goats. I am indeed. Actually, I should introduce the animal's out sort of throwing it on people. But what's happening behind me? Because I can't see so well, we have a very sweet little donkey who I think is it cooled Philomena. I'm not quite sure. But in a very sweet donkey, then we've got a couple of well. So I was told that we had pigs and goats. But then it turned out that in fact what they will pygmy goat pygmy goat. Well, I we normally is going to be a whole protest out front and within the hour because normally we always have a reindeer. And of course, it was very ranger abuse. Earlier this year in the papers. It's really one ranger. They they claims the biggest reindeer in the UK he'll be here tomorrow. So I said, maybe we could have all of the animals that were in the tippety scene. But all this donkey so far donkeys and baby pygmy goat. But also sheep there are couple of smoke camel. Oh, that would be nice. But I wonder if we might get an intent just opposite. Good to that. But we we've had enough stories about interviews as well. But anyway. Let's move swiftly swiftly laws. Should we look at the papers? This morning. Absolutely. So, of course, Brexit, always dominates the headlines, and we're all getting lately, I Raleigh about that. Which is which is a shame. If it gets to that. But the telegraph I. What do you tell your toys? The one that leads with breakfast in the UK, and that is another minister has resigned from Theresa May's government. And it was a joke that Jeremy Corbyn couldn't sustain the label couldn't sustain any more resignations. But Theresa May seems to be giving him a run for his money at the moment. And this one has gone down on the ministers resigned relative scale grounds. This one is on all satellite program with the EU. Satellite program. But when it comes to covering tombstone, we'll it say some KEMA resigned because he just disapproved of us pulling out of the Galileo programme who knows this other one down and your read on that resignation. I just because impossible task or I think he is positioning himself because December the eleventh is going to be the crucial vote, and you can't really be in government and then vote against the prime minister. So that looks like another nail in the coffin for this deal. Also, the financial times we can dishes leading with crossville h is chairman to be axed Morgan to leave within weeks projects run over budget ministers press may to act. I mean, this is just you know, we we heard so much. I think very early on John about would be time to focus on anything. Well, of course, we can go through Brexit. But ministers will still have time. We there's there's no capacity. Do anything else is there? No, it's taken over everything when print bandwidth, and I think the papers are up to their own. Tricks. You're seeing the same old biases playing themselves. So far out the telegraph spots. Every minister may be leaving the Daily Mail wants this agreement desperately now post postponed Dacre and the new editor. And they're playing it out in their own biased. Coverage to f t seems to have drifted in wanting this, particularly and I think posted because Genesis bored of it, but that's causing a bit of who as well. The F FTE's normally thought of the sensible paper, which cannot she hold a resistant line against government without a problem. Now, of course, the other big story that's being reported everywhere is the twenty summit which is currently own going in Boina Sarah's in 'Argentina hellish drinks party ever match overlook white room as well. I mean often you don't see the stage managing but watching this play out on television last night and somebody sort of ushers and porters trying to put everybody into positions rather odd with NBS, mama bin Salman, actually being slightly sidelined on in the big group. Family photograph. Right. Pushed to the edge. Nobody wanting to be around him despite his big high five with Putin yesterday. This one for little sort of side show that goes on them, which I think the mirror has much to decode the wording of where president Macron goes up. Tim and says look you never listen to me an MBA. Everything's gonna be fine. Everything's fly list on a promise. I'll listen to you in future. Macaroni, saying listen. I'm amount of my word, and I'll do whatever. So they tried to kind of get vignettes amongst these. Well, I tend to have ever seen something with such a lot of access to a private conversation. But macro trying to position of mine of principle against NBS. I mean, it's hilarious and Trump is trying to be that only the times actually had the real shot the high five shot the others the guardian had them apart. But with that that was the shot, and you would have thought they'd all have been the splashing that and we were missing Tanta miracle as well. The poor lady. Of course, our eighth eighth three forty doesn't quite work at diverted to Cologne, and it just I mean, really such define Iberia then all the way to as as well. Fly Barrio, Chrissy Atlantic really. Not great for a chance bounce about as well. It's like it was quite amazing German unions, whatever it is also at a time when the Bundeswehr has been so sort of criticized no backup crew for the flight, either quite a second aircraft could've taken her. But they were they were all at that. They have to stand up. You know, what's also is that that's not the first time that that derail through mechanical failure. Isn't that rather odd for plane that's going to be carrying a head of state for a lot of chatter as well? It was it was the German presses very early on saying that you couldn't have been that the electric system of aircraft could have been hacked because it wasn't. It wasn't a fuel valve it wasn't. It wasn't the landing gear. It was actually the whole com system on the aircraft which is which market bombing. This is an aircraft for head of state. And of course, she was rushing that to be really the voice of reason the G twenty which is a ride by now by this morning. So she she was meant to one thing that really interested me about it was Macron who in the middle of this winter to a bookshop in L Ateneo, which is made out of an old theater. So it's terribly grand. And my conferences in self a little bit of a writer, and he said to the writers when this is all over I'm going to get back to telling the real truth, meaning writing what does that mean for what he's telling the movements. Well, I he's he's those an extensive into you with him in which he listed all the books. He'd read. Which was nineteenth twentieth century classics. You know, he gives gifts rather skill gift of books to world leaders. He really is a bit of an intellectual. He's having to political jogging at the Maidment, absolutely John. Let's catching your eye in the papers today.
