"Staggering. Just staggering. He's won the league with 90 seconds of stoppage time to play. United's game was over. They had it. They've had it stolen back. It's just the most extraordinary scenario you could have dreamt up. Where does football go from here? Well, of course that was the Premier League moment. And again, a huge privilege to be there and something, of course, also you could not possibly have pre imagined. Everybody who arrived at the ground that day assumes that Manchester City by the end of the day, we're going to be Premier League champions. Because they only had to beat QPR and QPR went up too much. And Manchester City were very good. And it was a given. But of course, the assumption was that they'd win it two or three zero and we'd all go home. And so any preconceptions were blown out of the water. QPR were two one up. And then I think it's Jacko makes it two two and you're thinking, well, if they score again here, it's going to be a thing. I commentated from that on that game through a very, very high gain script manager to the city. And my first thought when aguero struck him that went in the net and I shouted aguero, my first thought was, please let that be aguero. Because that is not the one you want to get wrong. And managed to city, as they always have, I can't remember it precisely which ones they were, but they had two or three of their squat well balanced dash and dark middle players. And I went with aguero from a long, long way away. And mercifully, it was him. And it is interesting. How these moments stitch you. I'll tell you a story about Martin Tyler. You might have might not have heard this before, but of course Martin, fabulous commentator that he is, did the moment for Sky Sports in the UK and it is absolutely iconic. His long shot of aguero. Everybody in the UK knows it off by heart. Four or 5 years later, I was on a train with Martin back from a Manchester City game to London. And we both got off at the same station at one just north of London, place called milk kings that you'll be aware of. And we got off at Milton Keynes and we had to step through some reasonably well oiled Manchester City fans who'd fallen asleep in their aisles on the train coming home after a few beers. And as we walked through, they recognized Martin and they said, you might see entirely. And they said, oh, thanks for that aguero goal. And when we got off the train, I said to Martin Martin, they think you scored it. I said, just to let you know, you didn't score

"Ford decided I like to I like how it's the majority of the drivers. So some of the drivers were like, nah. It's for charity. Yeah, I don't know. Anyway, Ford decided to sell the whole operation to Red Bull in September of 2004 for a symbolic $1 price after diedrich and company committed $400 million to the team over the next three seasons. It's a lot to commit. Yeah. In a deal that included Jaguar's Milton Keynes headquarters along with a wind tunnel and test facilities in by Chester and Bedford, diedrich and Red Bull finally had their own team for the 2005 Formula One season. Upon the purchase, Red Bull head of development Mark Gallagher said quote. How about like Gallagher? Yeah. Any of that line spies is coming to F one because it's sexy and exciting. Then bring their corporate joyless Ness with them and take all the sexiness and excite me now. They made the sport so late that fans have been alienated. Red boys and reserves that smash. What a crack another Red Bull. Yeah? Yeah. Okay, see you later. This podcast is going to get increasingly fast by the end of it. And loud. But first move was higher. Many shits his first move was to hire a new team principal. He first asked Gerhard Berger their old driver, but when he declined, Dietrich went to his second choice. A former formula 3000 driver named Christian herner. A horn dog. Horner was a talented driver in his own right, racing in formula three thousand until the late 90s. Formula three thousands. The then 25 year old convinced a few investors, including his father. Christian then persuaded P one motor sport founder Raleigh Vinci to take on the role of his race engineer, bought a secondhand trailer from Helmut Marco and was eventually joined at Artem by driver Kurt Mulligan's. However, it was during a pre season test that Christian followed driver Juan Pablo Montoya during a high-speed corner. When he realized he was not capable of replicating that level of commitment that his competitor had, as a result, he decided to hang up those racing coveralls once and for all and focus on management. There is something kind of admirable about being like, eh, you know what? This guy's clearly better than me. I don't have. I'm not really willing to do that. Yeah. But yeah, that is pretty mature for a 25 year old. Arden won three straight formula 3000 team in driver's titles from 2002 to 2004. It was around this time that Christian started looking for an opportunity to move into for me the what? Fortunately for him, this was also when Dietrich met a was ready to hire a new team principal. In January 2005, Christian was hired to head the Red Bull team, which made him the youngest team principal in F one history at only 32 years old. Hoarders effects were immediately felt in Red Bull's first official season of 2005. He oversaw construction of their new car, which used a Cosworth engine in chassis from the old Jaguar, something that significantly eased the financial load. Horner was also bullish on signing David colt hard and Christian kind as their drivers. Red Bull claimed more points in their first two races than Jaguar had the entire previous season finished in a respectable 7th place in the 2005 constructor championship. Not bad for a new team, especially considering Horner only had 8 weeks of lead time before the first race of the season. That is pretty crazy. That takes us longer to shoot videos. To top off their successful year, Christian Horner signed revolutionary designer, Adrian newey, as chief technical officer in the off season. So things at Red Bull Racing were about to get a whole lot red bullier. You can learn more about Adrian newey in our episode about his life from back in March of last year. That is episode one 29. By joining Red Bull, Adrian newey was taking on a significant challenge. The 6 time constructors title holder was a savant with aerodynamics and engineering. However, his previous teams, Williams and McLaren, had decades of championship pedigree. Red Bull Racing had nothing. In an interview this past December, newly recalled, quote. Nui recalled, Red Bull was always having big discos. Was this team that would be taking seriously, but if you went beneath that veneer, then to me it looked like, yes, it had all the building blocks, just trying to win races with the new team was something that really intrigued me. I'm so intrigued. Got me going. And I love Red Bull. I put it in my tea cup, so I feel fancy what I'm doing. Nui joined Red Bull midway through 2006, so he didn't have a huge influence on the car's design that season. Red Bull switched from Cosworth power units to Ferrari, but the results weren't as spectacular as anticipated. David Coulthard scored Red Bull's first podium in Monaco, but overall they finished with 18 points less than they had in 2005 and faced a growing challenge from its newly founded junior sister team Scuderia Toro Rosso. That was as early as 2006. I don't know that. Wow. Here's a little quick tangent about Toro Rosso. The team made its debut in 2006 after Paul stoddard sold his remaining interest in the minority team, two diedrich Madison. Toro Rosso was founded to serve as the junior team to Red Bull with the goal of developing its drivers for the senior team and is today known as AlphaTauri. So there you go. Must be nice to have a feeder team a anyway, the first complete car newey developed at Red Bull was the RB three, which was powered by the Renault RS 26 engine. There were mechanical issues and at least one retirement in each of the first 7 races of the 2007 season. But mid season updates improved pace and reliability, which led to their best finish at the European Grand Prix, where mock weather claimed third and David cute 5th. Is Mark Weber, Australian? I believe so. I thought he was German. No, no. He's Australian. Mom, Weber. Mark Webber. Red Bull finished. I love web burgers. Is that that

"Perhaps you'd expect a driver being paid handsomely to defend their team to the hills, but you know, if you look at McLaren three, four years ago, you say, well, the reason they can't win is because a wind tunnel is an up to spec. So that's why they're getting their brand new shyly one online for 2024. But we know that him will facility at Sauber is amazing, all those LMP1 cars at a designer and then go on to blitz circuit Della Sartre and all of that, it's a cracked facility, but they're not, yeah, and as you mentioned they're not operating at the cost cap. So some of that means they're slow with parts so they can design something pretty mega but then can't construct it, can't get it on both cars. But also if you're not operating at cost cap, you know, this is why the arguments for breaking the cost cap with the allegations at Red Bull are so strong because there is performance to be gained there. So if you think Alfred have taken it or sailboats, we should probably start referring to taking that decent step forward. They're now midfield contenders, which is no mean feat, considering that car would not do two or three laps without going bang in pre season testing, but now a bona FIDE midfield contender with some more investment with the more loving playing field of the cost cap. So again, if they keep on investing, they would expect them to start to begin to catch up. So if I could use a poor analogy, I'm an Aston Villa fan Martin and we've just signed a new manager in Unai Emery, and it's not about going and winning the Premier League in the next three seasons. It's about being the best of the rest, which I think is the next target for that Sauber operation that we did sign of the chassis. And then it's about what they can do when they're running well. They probably the Audi side is probably been through a couple of team leaders to find the right one and then you start investing together to build incremental gains with the engine and whatever. And then in their words, take on or be the best German manufacturer in what was that awful they did something like the rings of the new stars or something which basically means move over Mercedes. And I think when they probably put that out what they're anticipating is beating Mercedes at the top rather than thinking Mercedes have regressed to where they are now. Okay, look, let's take a quick break and when we come back we'll talk about how it might work from a team versus engine perspective, many teams do split those two bases and successfully in some cases and will have a look to what they could be doing over the next three years to ensure that they have the best drivers from 2026 to take on that three year plan of getting to the front of the grid. Those are stories are on the way. Okay, let's talk a little bit about Matt, your opinion on how it might work. Audi have their obviously their base in Germany, their motor sport base. But as you've mentioned already, actually, the henville facility, the wind tunnel there, which has been around a long time now, but I gather has been updated and is still used very much as a source of revenue. As a business line to rent out. And it's still very if not cutting edge is still very, very good. One of the best in the world. Many teams do split. So the world champions, Honda and Red Bull, Red Bull powertrains based here in the UK and Milton Keynes. And then some of the, I think the stuff that Honda are very, very good at. They would say the combustion engine side is still done in Japan. Also split, Renault, Alpine. If you like France and perhaps less successfully, you could say lots of teams split engine and team and some have it all under one roof. I know the Christian Horner recently has been using that phrase that Red Bull power trains and Red Bull is able to build a car and an engine under one roof. I think it was an interview with Fred. A Ted sorry when he went to his house over the break and he was talking a lot about Red Bull powertrains. It was interesting that he was making that and sort of before the re loving with Honda. I guess, but what's your opinion on how it could shake out? Because it's not like Audi are going to buy their way into Sauber. Close down their base, which is not the biggest, but nothing to be ashamed of and move it all to Germany. So they're going to have to split it, not a million miles apart physically. How do you think it's going to shake out? Well, the one Barrett that would be the enormous cost and two if in rising does retain this small percentage. He'll say that that doesn't happen. But I think it's an interesting discussion, isn't it? Because then where do you draw the line? So, you know, like you talk about Red Bull being based in the UK and Honda in Japan. But what about Mercedes with the engine being done at brixworth and end up being an hour's drive to the chassis in brackley? What about even Red Bull when they go with their Red Bull powertrains online? Well, they're still separated by a factory rule in Adrian newey. It might be masterminding the design of the car, but he's not over same engine. Look at auto sport, we have the distinct magazine and the website. Has that necessarily changed from when we always used to be in the office together to now us communicating on Zoom and Microsoft Teams and other online software since pandemic not necessarily. So I don't really buy that as a barrier. I can see why it might be a handy excuse or whatever, you know, you think of maybe a better way to look at it rather than sort of the physical locations getting bogged down and that is the philosophy to use a really grandiose term. The concept that the approach, but that's why the McLaren Honda partnerships fell apart so much because one was had Mercedes sorry, because McLaren had designed this what it thought was a class leading better than anyway. I was size zero Coke bottle shaped package. The Honda engine barely could fit in. And so because it was basically crowbar in there, it was getting too hot and kept going bang all the time. So you can add these two class leading organizations, but unless they integrate well, it's not going to happen. So that's when you would say Sauber is still Sauber engineer is and there will still have this minority ownership and stuff. But effectively, if they're all using Audi headed letter paper, you'd expect them to run with the same approach and therefore they can integrate well and be harmonious. So I don't see it being a major issue. And in terms of Audi, bigwigs or the marketing department with the ideally wanting all in Germany, yeah, I get that, but does it really matter? I mean, it is the same way so I was speaking to someone and I'm sure people can take an educated potshot who it was, but someone very high up in the Porsche 9 one 9 program. I said, well,

"Would be, yeah, it would be that that would still be the chassis base and then you would have Audi providing the engine from its neuberg site in Germany. Those two sides were together. But yeah, Audi, as a 2026, we do expect to be a works team taking a majority share in the Salva project, so it would have that ownership. So it wouldn't be so much of a 50 50 that would be more weighted in Audi's favor. Building a Formula One engine is a tough thing to do anyway and it's hard to do it right. Building two concurrently is an almost herculean task and that seems to be what VW group kind of came towards Formula One with with news of Porsche entering into a deal with Red Bull and of course those that follow Formula One will know that since February last year, Formula One of had Red Bull power trains being built again under that Red Bull umbrella on the same side and employing many of the star from the likes of Mercedes and Renault, building up that business of Red Bull making engines. And so I was a little bit confused as the stories and the rumors came out Luke about, well, a Red Bull gonna build the engine and it's a Porsche badge we've seen that in the 80s a tag engines as well support have done that before, but also when Audi came out, they said, well, no, we're going to build an engine. It's important for us to be an engine manufacturer to be known as Audi. They almost beat Porsche. Their VW bedfellows to the punch in a way. So where VW always talking about building to Formula One engines concurrently, or is that the difference between the two deals with Sauber and Red Bull? They do want two separate engine projects despite it being too manufacturers who are on the same grid. And it doesn't, it doesn't make sense in many ways. And as you rightly say, and it's something that we put to Audi when they made the announcement. He said basically why would you guys not sort of share like Intel and things like that and sort of share sort of cost saving measures by only building one engine and one that is bad as an Audi and one, as bashed as a Porsche. And they said ultimately we want these to be two separate teams. We want it to be that we have our identity as Audi. We have this fan following and things like that and people know that that is the Audi team. So there is that difference between the two of them. But there is, yeah, as you say, that Red Bull powertrains project that's being built up and Red Bull has always said, look, we can be independent. We can be self sufficient. We don't need an engine partner to work with from 2026. But if there is an interested party, as Porsche was, then we'd be happy to talk about possibly sort of working together and the sort of ins and outs of how that would work. And it would be that, yeah, you'd have the engine built at Milton Keynes, but the know how as well coming from Germany as well and everything, tying in together. So yeah, it's an interesting way that's kind of forming together because as you say, Red Bull have invested a lot into Red Bull powertrains. They've brought on a lot of really well known staff as well from teams such as Mercedes. And ultimately they want that to be an engine operation in its own right. With or without a partner. And I think then yeah, they're waiting to see was there an interest to partner who could come along at the right time. It looked like it was going to be Porsche, but now it's not. Everything seems to have been resting on a final decision for the 2026 engine regulations, which, through things like COVID, pushed back and delayed. In fact, you mentioned it already Red Bull were almost without an engine supply deal in recent times. So look, it's understandable that Formula One wanted a greater choice of manufacturers coming in to the sport. Now, all sports teams want to win against the best, but also they all want to win and if they can maybe delay somebody coming into the sport. And by a few months, it's a competitive advantage and in Formula One, you have to reach a consensus at times as well. Some would say a little like herding cats. One of the other teams said about new engine manufacturers coming in. So they've always been very open to it, but they've said that we want more manufacturers coming in that obviously strengthens Formula One to not just have this reliance on, say, three or four engine supplies. You want that pool to increase. And we've seen F one have its big manufacturer boom in the mid 2000s and obviously then the big manufacturer exodus at the end of the 2000s. So it does cut both ways. Mercedes and Ferrari, they always quite clear that they weren't looking to delay the approval of the 2026 regs to gain a few more months and get some kind of advantage. It was kind of indicated that they were, that that would sort of by dragging their heels a little bit, it would work in their favor by delaying maybe Porsche and Audi's plans a little bit, particularly Porsche and the link up with Red Bull. But again, I think that that has been part of this story, but the moment the green light was given to the engine rigs by the FIA in August. That then should have set off the dominoes for Red Bull to be able to announce with Porsche and Audi to announce its plans as well. We saw Audi do that, but it's all this stuff behind the scenes between Red Bull and Porsche that has ultimately caused that to fall down. So truthfully, I think that that was inevitable given that I think even if you'd had these regs approved months ago, I think rebel and Porsche was still got to the point they have now where Porsche says we want 50% of the team and Red Bull says hang on a minute, we're not up for that. What's your opinion? Do you think a new entrant can be successful in Formula One? Well, we've seen Honda eventually winning a break in the Mercedes dominance. But existing manufacturers have decades of knowledge they race day to the data. From your opinion, a team come in and expect to start winning in reasonable time. I think they can. I think it takes time to build up as with all things in Formula One, but I think the way the engine rules are now, it's been simplified a little bit. We've got to removal of the MG UH, for example, from 2026. And I think that you've got to remember these aren't just like, oh, we're going to set up an engine project and enter formula. And this is Porsche who have won LeMond 19 times one of the greatest manufacturers in automotive history with a rich rich history through motor sport who even as early as sort of like what 2017 18 they were looking at an engine project when they pulled the plug on their LMP1 program. So I think that, yeah, they can be successful. I think these things do take time. I think Audi, for example, they've set, they want to be competitive within three or four years of joining the F one grid. And that's, I think that's an interesting time frame. It's maybe quite soon it would seem like, but also, yeah, there's funding a lot of money. They're putting a lot of money into this. They don't want to be waiting around. So I think that I think they can be successful though, yes. I think that it's not going to be one of those things where if poor should do celebs or F one, they're going to be waiting years and years to get any kind of success. I think it's going to be a bit of a different story. When Honda came in, purely because these engine regs have matured so much, there's so much we'll know how, and yeah, I think the track record of companies such as Porsche does speak for itself. Right, so come on, you have your ear to the ground.

What's meaningful about the cup half empty rule? So we see the cup half full as being someone who's an optimist, a positive outlook on life. And we see the cup half empty is pessimistic and you see the cup of half a glass of water as being long running ad on your podcast because you're in with big water, as we know. So they said, what's meaningful about the cup half empty rule is having with not that big water. Not that big one. Half a glass very specifically. So in the article it says, what's so meaningful about having the cup half empty? Having ruined your cup means you have margin, margin is breathing room. It gives you space to think and focus. It gives you the ability to be intentional about what you're doing. It gives you a chance to do more to do something new. This is just a very long winded way of making the glass half empty as half full. It's still optimism. Your basically applying the glass half full principle to the glass half empty. And I just like to think most acts are optimistic anyway, like in our lives, this is all optimism. Born out of the idea will still be here tomorrow. This is all optimistic. We're doing this podcast. Isn't that optimism? I think, I don't know. No one's more optimistic than me at 2 a.m. drunk on groupon. Because then I will buy falconry lessons at a 54 point car service in Milton Keynes. I don't live in Milton Keynes. What's more optimistic than thinking I'm going to go to Milton Keynes and get my car serviced. So it's trying to flip this idea of the glass half empty on its head. Nabil? I think that sounds like reluctant optimism I like it. I am a proud pessimist. I believe in glass half empty. I think that creates the need for further work. I believe that gives you a goal. I think you should be driven. You know, if we didn't have goals and drive, then we wouldn't be able to live if everything was perfect, then there'd be nothing to do. And then that would be boring.

We discovered electricity. We created the form to talk to people that weren't even there because we felt them not being there. Hence us creating the phone. I think optimism is oversold. I think sometimes, I mean, do you really want to be an optimist? Look at America. They're optimistic people. Do you want that for you? I don't. I think pessimism is beautiful. I think there's something to be said about pessimism and skepticism and sarcasm and all the beautiful things that negativity brings. What good art has ever been born from a happy person?

She's in her 30s, unmarried and on the verge of eternal loneliness, well, at least, according to her mother, will her aunties ever stop loudly praying for her to find a spouse? Will she find love and on her own terms? All of that is explored in the new novel, yinka, where is your husband? And author Lizzie dome Lola Blackburn joins me now from Milton Keynes, England. Welcome to the program. Hi, thanks so much for having me. The protagonist in your story yinka is feeling something that I think many women have felt. Many people have felt this pressure to hurry up and get married. And of course, that's a classic theme, right? I mean, Pride and Prejudice, Bridget Jones, why did you want to revisit that in your novel? When I was in my early 20s, mid 20s, which is when I started writing the Inca. I was filming the pressure to settle down by my own Nigerian mom and so I decided to write a story about a British Nigerian woman going through the same thing and funny enough ink story started off as a short story and I had it on a blog that I ran called Christian data dilemmas because I really created to see more Christians in mainstream fiction. The idea to turn to a novel came much later on when I met this fantastic author called ducky lay at this plugin work shop that I attended. And in addition to her giving some really helpful feedback, she said, you know, I really like this secret character. I think she turned into a novel and I did. I took on a challenge blindly, and the rest you could say is history. Why did you particularly want to explore the dilemmas of a Christian woman who's dating? What's different about that? Yeah, I just kind of wanted to show how Christianity is not outdated and how we have a personal connection to a higher power and I feel like there's lots of people of faith out there and it might have different morals or principles when it comes to dating. So yankers case. She's saving herself for marriage because her virginity is very sacred to her. I just kind of wanted to show someone she didn't feel ashamed of their faith and kind of moved any stigma on it as well. Is a black woman from a British Nigerian family. How does her family background shape the way that she navigates this experience of trying to find a husband? In Nigerian culture, like, you know, marriage is seen as a very big deal. You can kind of struggles with two cultures. She needs to kind of get to a place where she is that it's fine. You know, to have that conflict and doesn't make it any less of a person. And I think there's a lot of people out there that can relate to, you know, not feeling quite British enough in some circles or Nigerian enough in other circles. One of the issues you also take on in this book is white European beauty standards. And Ying's feelings about herself. What are her feelings about herself living in a mostly white culture? And what do they mean for her as a woman who's out there dating? So with being car, she kind of looks at society and what she sees and internalizes that. So what she seen is light skin and women with a centric beauty kind of being put on a pedestal or like they are the love interest in music videos or in movies. And she's not seen enough dark skinned women. So she kind of feels like, okay, if that's the case, then I might attractive. Yinka has to come to terms that she is beautiful and she had accepted it and see it for herself. And that's how she kind of goes in a self discovery journey to value herself and to find herself worth. Yinka is also a highly successful woman. She's a professional Oxford educated. She doesn't really need a man, but we realized pretty quickly that as much as she kind of tries to deny it, she wants a partner. How did she come to terms with that? Yeah, so I kind of wanted to show that if you want to find love, that's okay. In the same way that the person chooses not to get married, that's fine as well and also I wanted to show that self love is the most important love as well. And that, in order to truly love someone, you have to love yourself. You've been quoted as saying that you wanted to sort of subvert the trope of the strong black woman in this book. You wanted ginka to be a little awkward, a little vulnerable. Tell us more about that. I think in a past, on TV, we've seen a lot of strong black women or like the kind of call black chick and we're not monolithic group or kind of different. So we've been car she has a kind of quirky personality where she likes her lame jokes, but at the same time, she is a bit in tune with popular culture, hopefully there will be people that identify with her. That's other Lizzie demo with a Blackburn, her novel yinka, where is your husband is out now?.

Charles good morning Thank you for coming to the studio Let's start with this software developer playtex in M and a talks to buy another firm What are the details Yeah and I say the gaming software developer plays They have been some under some M and a action in recent weeks in actually recent months It started in about October and this has been rumbling on There's been a couple of suitors that have come out One of them Gopher which is one of its largest investors said that they weren't interested in making an offer but now it looks like it could run into February So they have a accepted off that they've accepted and recommended an offer from an Australian company called aristocrat It has now delayed its meeting to approve that bid from aristocrat which was due later this month That's going into February And that's as it says it's in talks with JK oh Now that is a venture from a former Formula One team owner Eddie Jordan And they have until January 26th to say whether they will or they won't make an offer The upshot is that play check directors continue to recommend aristocrats offer And that will probably keep on going until anything changes until there's a firm off from the table But JK said that they just needed some more time to develop the terms of a potential offer for the company and then the takeover panel said that's fine and they will give them until January the 26th Okay So that's one we'll continue to watch What about this Milton Keynes based Waste Management company renewing management change there Yeah absolutely So their longtime CFO Toby woolwich he's been at the company for about ten years Now renew has been through a bit of a transformation during that time He joined he was a part of shank's group which then merged with another company to create renewing And Waste Management although it's one of these one of these industries that perhaps isn't the most glamorous It's perhaps been generous It's increasingly important in today's world especially when it comes to recycling especially when it comes to dealing with the waste that we all produce Now that integration and that M and a and that merger is now complete and the board says that the business is performing strongly and so they came to a mutual decision to move on Now the result of this is is that there is going to be a new opening in one of the UK's companies The board has started its search to find a new CEO and that will be a very exciting job for somebody in the new year Okay rare that we talk about UK markets without talking about the supermarkets and we got a REIT just explains for us We've got a REIT that's buying a Sainsbury's in the northeast of England and an asda in South Wales just unpack that for us Yeah absolutely So Sainsbury's obviously runs this

"Ones I think is more difficult for drivers to judges the final corner, the white lines defined as the edge of the track and it's a place you carry a lot of momentum. You've done your lap. You need to nail it and you're pushing wide and I think we saw quite a lot on the exit of turn 16 today as people just carry too much speed in and run wide. But I think that will be the critical and qualifying tomorrow just to see if drivers are willing to push it to take it to the max to push that push that limit there without going too far and losing the lap time at all. Thank you for that clarification drawn. Now, as I mentioned at the start of the podcast, we come into the weekend without title rivals on equal points first time in 47 years that we've had this situation. Do you think that the new style track particularly suits Mercedes or Red Bull better? It's actually hard to judge who it seems better really. I saw heard Christian Horner was speaking on sky today to Korean chandok who was involved in the track changes a little bit and joking that you took out all the corners, Mercedes doesn't like obviously the Red Bull is quite good on the slow speed, stuff the agility. Traction. So the old configuration may well have seated Red Bull better. We saw last year, Red Bull, one or other factors at play. Lewis come back from having COVID. The team has spent a lot of practice working on development tires rather than set up for the race. So different things at place. It was kind of an unreal picture last year of form. It was clear the Red Bull was competitive there, but now I think it's much more much more equal the straits obviously favor Mercedes higher speed corners, favor Mercedes, but it doesn't seem to be much much in it today. I think it could come down to setup and tire temperatures. I think in the warmer temperature of the day, the rebels seemed quicker more on it. And the Mercedes didn't seem as comfortable, but as the temperature dropped away, which normally shifts the car balance, you need to get the kind of better gripping and up to temperature better. I think then the Mercedes excelled a little bit and the Red Bull fell away, especially on single lap pace. So I think that's the only difference we've seen. Today, and I still think it's too close to call. I still think we don't know. I think we've seen we see more potential of themselves on a single lap. And potentially more potential from the Red Bull over long distances, but again it's Friday night. The simulator boys will be working flat out tonight in broccoli and Milton Keynes working through the processes and data and setups and I think we'll know a lot more maybe even not the end of P three because it takes place in the wrong conditions. But the temperatures drop in into qualifying, I think then you'll definitely get the clear indication of where things are at. That is the storyline of this season to close to call. I've spoken to so many different people in the paddock so far this weekend and everyone has said, you know, they're just completely told on how this weekend and will play out. And that is what makes it so so exciting. But there has been so much talk coming into this weekend about what to expect from the title rivals how things might unfold. Of course, we're not going to actually speak to you again on the pod ahead of race day. Do you think that this track will set us up for an exciting finale between the two teams though? Yeah, I know in the past, I would have been criticized for having delivering quite boring races, but I think that the track changes allied to the fact that it's a world championship decider whichever driver and the point situation is fantastic because neither of them can afford to finish second or behind the rival. It's not as if max can safely finish second or Lewis can safely finish second or just shadow him home. Just kind of set up one of those finales. It doesn't quite come alive. This is winner takes all absolutely finely poised. Lewis needs to finish ahead of max. If he doesn't finish, or finishes behind max, it's over. And max can't afford for Lu to finish head, then he's off the championship. So I think there's a lot of play a lot of tension. It's going to come down to the performance of over the long run. It can come down to strategy. You can come down to the rolls of the teammates in disrupting the battle head, but I think all the ingredients are there. Neither car seems to have had particularly stretched its legs. So far to leave you thinking, yep, this team's got it nailed that car looks better. It's still completely open. And I think that's exactly what we wanted, really. Yeah, that is exactly what we want as fans. Now looking further down the pack third in the constructors is very almost secured with Ferrari 38.5 points ahead of McLaren, but which team do you reckon we'll fare better this weekend? Because things are still really tight between Charles Lando and Carlos with 8.5 points covering the three of them. I think in terms of the constructors championship in that fight for third place, I think very slim possibility of McLaren overhauling it would take a phenomenal spectacular race of the Mercedes and Red Bulls all retiring to open a scenario where Ferrari or McLaren can come out there. I think that run of triple header results for McLaren where they scored four points in three races. Obviously they had Daniel's problem in Mexico. Disappointed in Brazil and then the Qatar tire failure for Lando cost the massively Ferrari stretched its legs and built that gap up. And I think on the grander scheme of things, McLaren accept that they probably had probably fourth place is what they deserve this season that Ferrari has probably had a pretty quick car from the off didn't capitalize early on when McLaren did and was bringing in all those results. So I think slight disappointment they didn't take third, but I think fourth place is still very good. They've built potential built some momentum. And I think it does set up a fascinating seeing if Ferrari can kind of build on what it's seen this year and step up and be battling Mercedes and Red Bull equally from the start of 2022. Another big storyline that we have this weekend is that it is Kimmy's last race weekend in a Formula One. Big loss to the sport and unfortunately today he ended up in the barriers after a fairly heavy shun at the end of FP two. Have you heard anything more from him or the team about that incident? Not heard very much. I think all Kimi said after they were trying some things on the car, sounds like setups. Ahead of the weekend, obviously looking let's save the session. You'll normally do long runs trying to analyze how things are mapping out for the sundown. It's quite I think it's just a perhaps a consequence of the changes of that final hotel sequence at the corners of an open up a bit. So whereas before they were quite low speed, coming out of there wasn't too much on the edge. I think that's cool is now just a bit quicker. You just need to push that little bit harder. And they've remained off camber. So mistakes are punished. And we saw Valtteri Bottas brush the barriers there in FB two quite early on. I think the same thing with Kimi, you accelerate..

"Drivers for next year after the Brazilian Grand Prix. We know Valtteri Bottas is obviously already one of them. But the question is, who is the other one? It won't be cult on Herta because Andretti is not behind that team anymore. But it might be, in fact, almost certainly will be when you joke. Yeah, so that's in terms of the silly season. It was, you know, the underwhelming merry go round of drivers to go a little bit excited that we may have had a complete change of tech from the potentially Andretti side of the camp, but yeah, given Michael Andretti's pulling of into the other way, the European way, maybe maybe after my bullet in that regard. We're definitely at the dregs of the driver market room meal because there's not much else going on. Yeah, not much hate going on unfortunately on that boy piastre. So it's gonna have to be said with guanyu Zhou. On the greater and the various pronunciations David Croft will progress through throughout the season. I do look forward to that. Some people, at least at a minimum, but that's after the Brazilian Grand Prix. I've got some good news rob, though. This is unusual never have heard before. So please strap yourself into your chair. Porsche might join Formula One. While a pity. That's, well, it is the old because I have done so many times. I have set her in the brain type will had Kingston biscuits and walked away with no deal at the end of it. It's like might as well Michael Andretti Mayo will be representing Porsche. Yes. In negotiation. So it is a case of believe it when I say it. But again, it begs the question if Porsche so would it be I'm assuming it would be just in terms of being a power unit partner. You don't necessarily have to come in and buy tea. I think that's how I would like to get into Formula One. I think the route that no one would say coming. No, I'm not buying a team. And nor am I competing, but I'm going to supply power units in. I'm going to be very good, but I'm going to be supplying it. So yeah, it would be good, but it's almost a case of like for mine. It would be awesome if I could come in and just all the teams agree on a concession just to let them in as a stand-alone entity. Because yeah, I'm still big on this thing that we need, yeah there's just not enough places on the grid for for talent to really thrive in an airport. We're just tracking people that they want anyway. But, you know, I don't want it to be a case of all right, we'll come up power unit and then we'll just absorb Red Bull and then they disappear. You know what I mean? I've often said that Red Bull are at like genuinely. He's a 21st century Ferrari in very different in a very different case. But yeah, they very much part of the furniture and certainly in terms of modern Formula One. So here, yeah. And again, who would they really potty can't help? Like you're gonna buy that out. For example, it's only really, yeah. And I obviously have that link with the Red Bull corporation from many years ago, so yeah, that's the only time I can really think of, I don't know who it really benefits. All it is is just a different vaginal car to be honest. It is exciting to think that the modern day Ferrari is based in Milton Keynes because look that is spectrum has been developing, I guess. But it is an exciting story, but yes, you're right. I think so, and I can't remember where I read this. That because I'll be joining in the middle of the decade because that's when the new engine rules come in and they'll also be new technical rules. So it'll be more of a blank slate, which means they would be giving everyone else a head start by coming in in the middle of rules that by them there will be a new agreement for commercial matters and all that kind of thing, which means that they may get rid of that $200 million fee to join Formula One, which means not only may we get Porsche as a stand-alone team, but maybe we'll even get an Audi. Maybe one of them will be an engine supplier and the other one will be its own team or something. Because it is a shame to think that now we're at the point where teams can only be new if they buy other teams. They're not new at all. You just read about like you say, it's just a new badge on the same team. And while it's great to have a team like Porsche involved and you know, well, we hope that Formula One is in a more sustainable place economically and all that kind of thing. Manufacturers do lay. So if Porsche buys sour, then, you know, eventually they'll just go back to being soundbreaking because they'll leave for some reason. And that's not a sustainable way to grow the field. So you'd like to think it could be worse if they start their own team and they just collapse. But no, someone else will buy it if it's sustainable. So it is nice to think that they might have an opportunity to actually enter, but then how many times have we heard this story? Yeah. And it's exactly right. I'm not talking about we need that cow stiff and over time to come in these people have never heard of shall we say of entering the sport. William stories welcome. And then with just with the bizarre backstory in terms of how that guy wealth told me was I started. For Portia, they would be serious in their ambition. And it's almost a case of well, if they pull up stumps within 5 ten years and so we haven't really lost anything. Yeah, whereas if I absorb the same pull out and then, you know, these are almost the case if you don't say times really collapsing anymore because, you know, there's just this urge. They're all too important to fort though. All the, I guess, lineage and day and I behind, although they're very long, even like you're probably arguably the youngest team on the grid that I could think of would be would technically be really as an Aston Martin, not because it's the first year that we see. But because, you know, that was Jordan in what not one? Yeah, I guess so, yeah, yeah, from pain was Benton back in the day and actually take that back, well Red Bull would have been the youngest because that was, you know, I can link back to the days of the Stuart Grand Prix era. So they're the youngest thing. On the grid. But yeah, but they're all they're all significant. The significant enough history to be on the grid permanently into ensure that we don't lose them forever, whatever length they may have. So yeah, whereas Porsche comes in, it doesn't matter. You had a good run. You gotta piss off and do formal eagle or something. Even house. Even host is important, you know? You know why? In their own special way. Are you idiot? I do this all the bloody time..

"milton keynes" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist
"This is the globalist coming to you live from Midori house in London. I'm Georgina Godwin. On the show ahead. If Glasgow fails, then the whole thing fails. The Paris agreement will have crumpled at the first reckoning. The British prime minister host of the climate change conference in Scotland that begins today will have coverage from Glasgow as we look ahead to the make or break, cop 26. Then to Japan where the ruling party of fuma kushida has defied expectations to hang on to a comfortable majority in the weekend elections, and to the Netherlands which still doesn't have a government as coalition partners fail to agree on a way forward after more than 7 months of talks. Plus, we'll have a look through the climate dominated front pages, take a spin on the catwalk of fashion news before asking, who will watch the watchers? The BBC has laid out a new impartiality policy, but how can it possibly be policed? That's all ahead here on the globalist, life from London. First, a look at what else is happening in the news, Japan's ruling party has defied expectations to win a comfortable general election victory will have more on that a little later. British prime minister Boris Johnson says the UK will be able to enjoy a Christmas without restrictions, despite an alarming spike in COVID-19 infections, and Australia and Thailand are easing international border restrictions for the first time in 18 months. Stay tuned to Monica 24 throughout the day for more on those stories. But first, cop 26, or the UN climate change conference to give it its full name, has happened every year since 1995. The 26th iteration kicks off in Glasgow today. The two week annual summits are an important space for stakeholders to discuss the climate crisis on a global level and bring together those who've signed the United Nations framework convention on climate change, the UN FCC effectively, every nation, country or state in the world is involved, giving a total of 197 signature parties. Well, our color lotter rubella is in Glasgow for us, and I'm also joined by Adam Vaughan, whose chief reporter at new scientist. Carlotta, I understand it was pretty chaotic, even getting there. Yesterday, Gina, yesterday, it was a bit chaotic getting to Glasgow, basically the effects of climate change in full swing with a fallen tree around the railway line in Milton Keynes in the UK, meaning that every train from London to Glasgow from about midday onwards yesterday was canceled. This led to a bit of travel chaos and scrambling around the train station and the result is that the majority of people who had to be here early today ended up having to take a plane, which is quite ironic on the eve of one of the most decisive climate conferences of our times. Eventually everyone will manage to get here, but it was a bumpy start. Now go into your question about scale. We're talking about around 25,000 people. That includes government representatives, media campaigners and observers. As you said in your introduction, 197 signatory parties are attending. That includes nearly 120 heads of state, which is security and nightmare. To that effect, the Scottish events campus, the host venue for cop 26 has been officially handed over to the United Nations on Friday. So it's no longer UK territory. And for the duration of the conferences, you and territory. So they will be providing all that additional security and patrolling according to the UN standards. Now, Adam, if we could bring you in here, of course, this follows on from the Paris climate agreement in 2015, which locked in a ratcheting up of ambitions. Each country had to pledge a commitment to cut emissions in order to reach the targets specified. In the intervening years, how far had the signatories progressed on this? And what is the mood of the scientific community as we go into this hugely significant meeting? Yeah, so as you said, 2015, Paris was the deal. That was the deal to tackle climate change and then clouds goes all about delivering that deal really getting us on track for its targets. Now, since 2015, we have seen progress a lot of countries have upgraded their targets, so some of the most notable ones have been in the last year have been the U.S. obviously with Biden coming back in and reversing the call to Trump had taken and we've had the UK in the EU. And several other important economies have all set more ambitious carbon targets. Unfortunately, a bunch of big emitters have of not a lot of submitted new plans, but with the same old targets, which is not in the spirit of the Paris agreement. So Australia and Brazil would be examples of that. And so the net effect is that the Paris agreements targets are to pursue efforts to get to a rise of 1.5° above pre industrial effort. It's no more than that. And well below 2°. Now, unfortunately, all the pledges that we've had since in the last year or so have put us on track for about 2.7°. So you can see we're quite a way off track despite the progress we have had. I mean, Carlos cop 26 in simplistic terms is about saving the planet. But how much of it will be dictated by climate concerns and how much is really about geopolitics? Well, George, I think they go hand in hand when it comes to a conference a summit of this scale. Of course, the climate concerns are the top priority. But when you have some of the world's top polluters, not attending in person, and I say not attending, I mean, the heads of state, not attending. It's difficult not to think about the political implications that will have. We need to remember that a lot of the alliances that we had in Paris, particularly, for example, the U.S., China, after four years of Donald Trump, they're not on the same place as they were left. So the political implications and the geopolitical.

"In fema region number six in the morning. Everybody i'm adam curry and for northern silicon valley where we're all saying well. We're not in australia. I'm jesse devora man. You see that breakthrough in melbourne. See anything now. I'm sure you did was fantastic. Because like there was a crowd of people. In fact. I have a report. I have a boots on the ground report. From one of our producers on the second under the heading australia melbourne antilock down protests. Let's see here's the report. Police came out in huge numbers. This was expected this was a there was a demonstration. People were walking the the one where they knocked down the old lady and spray the crap out over with a spray of this is the one where the we'll let me read the short. The reports of protests are generally headlined as they came ready to fight. The police report is that protests went out of their way to remain as peaceful as possible party describing words but imagine. You're marching down the road you see. The police have assembled enforce looking menacing and marching towards you. The protesters changed direction. March down a side street to avoid the confrontation. This was repeated over and over until the police basically shepherd. It is called cuddling the protesters into a confrontation. That was unavoidable. There was nowhere left for the protesters to turn. They were boxed in and then they they served. You gotta see this video. They surged to just knock the cops down just to the cops were trying. They were really trying to do so many people with done and just rush through them and they yelling like with the braveheart charge. What actually we know how that ended. Not good Oh i think we need a since we're talking about australia. We need to correction on The we were duped. Specifically you were duped by the clip. The actors the cova actors. But i wasn't. I don't believe i was completely duped. I believe that it was like a double dupe. A double loop alleyoop. Or the. W how i saw these crisis actors because we see here their local they find some guy can use. In fact i had a that. I don't have any clips from this. Because it was too long. And i wasn't feeling like flipping it and you thought probably i saw. They would talk with the funeral home guy. I have a very short clip from him. Well at the beginning of his spiel. He's a funeral home. Guy for milton. Keynes i believe milton. Keynes yeah he I said it's not a short clip but it is the fundamental clip. He's feels that a lot of During the original party cova there wasn't he didn't see any more deaths than usual and he's a few wrong guy and his worth probably soliciting your local funeral home guy and talking to him and seeing what's going on but he did the thing that got me is at the very beginning of his spiel which goes on forever people can look it up He says well. I you know they. When this all began. They gussied me up to address. Stop and he went on camera on the bbc Are and he took any. So what do you want me to say. And they said what you know they scripted. Said he regretted it and then he regretted it because you realize all bullcrap into a lot of bad information going around. He was part of the problem. And so i said i'm not too concerned about the fact that there's a whip saw action on the crisis actors. Australia sir. Oh i see what you're saying. Okay i gotcha so. He was in effect without being a paid crisis. Actor as often with 'em five. Am the show up at your door. You're enamored you like oh shit. Okay i mean. I used to still get sucked into that trap. Last time was when michael jackson died. And i spent a whole day with. Cbs news is gonna be on the on the tonight as Twenty seconds maybe seventy-nine. Brad crews come over the house a huge group of people. And they talk to me for twenty minutes. And i get an go to the show. I'm there say yeah. I think guys right yeah boom. That's it i didn't. I don't think i even got a lower third. That's how bad it was didn't qualify for that. I got lowered third. When i did. Yeah this funeral director did say something interesting about what we've categorized as the liverpool protocol did you 'cause that was the that was like twelve minutes. Did you watch that. I watched the whole thing. Yeah i saw. Do you want me to play that or is it. Do you think that play is actually collected. I have it in the archives to maybe go back to one of these days. So what are you saying with numbers now so kind of rewinding about two twenty twenty in march april way. We saw a brief spike for about two weeks. Two and a half weeks. Maybe three weeks where unusually the phone started ringing and and as a society the way this being difficult to clip without going long on the clip is exactly why the bbc prep the guy dressed. The guy did everything gave him the script. That's exactly the point that they have to do that. Otherwise they'll never get the sound bite they need but that's when you're in linear media and you gotta hit the top of the hour or the commercial break. That's why need to just pressure the message into whatever you need it to be for the peace with very good again people to pass away in hospital. I'm i would say if i have ten collections of deceased. I of them would. They hospital removals. One of them would be from a care. Home at one of them would be either a residential address. Someone's going to die or hospice where people go to die for palliative care. We suddenly had an announcement on the tv from government that they were gonna try to protect the most vulnerable in care homes and that these care homes would be the places that were hit. The hardest which i kind of at a time for was really strange. 'cause i don't understand how virus can tack attack a specific building you know various in community or isn't in the community and this is important because we saw this very same scenario play out in washington state in new york state in california and michigan Illinois you know it was thing after thing just wasn't they were saying that wasn't making sense on coalface as a as an undertaker. I got caught every night for three weeks to care homes and this was a time when matt hancock who sits been dismissed from government transferred all of the elderly in hospitals into care homes. He'd been very careful to live with kobe. And put them into care homes. And i've since found out that the exact same time there was a thousand percent increase in the amount of madonna's lamb said it.

"Fire and covenant the ramble look. Did nothing to curry favor with. Local christian leaders the focus on warfare spiritual or otherwise. Just didn't sit well with many in the press. The jesus army was called menacing and sinister however the criticism didn't affect knoll or the fellowship. They'd come to pity other christians for their lack of commitment and foresight knowles vision had crystallized having learned a lot about branding from running the fellowships many successful businesses. He designed the army's new logo of blood red cross slash between the words. Jesus army finally knoll had worked out all the details. Everyone understood their place and role. They had their uniform a refined campaign and a war cry on april. Eighteenth nineteen eighty-seven sixty one year. Old knoll officially launched what had been brewing behind the scenes. The newly branded soldiers of the jesus army marched through the streets of london holding banners and singing. The crowd rallied and pledged full loyalty committing to super feis and hardship in public commissioning ceremony. A speaker from the covering authority read the churches. Fifteen clause manifesto in front of a map of the uk. The map was littered with pins representing jesus army activity. A small group broke off to deliver letters to the prime minister and the queen in them no urge the leaders to call the nation back to faith in god and promised to quote. Bring the gospel to the victims of vice much to knowles delight. The march didn't go unnoticed. However not all of the showed the group in a positive light. Shortly after the march the milton keynes gazette reported on this rebranded outreach wing of the fellowship when they interviewed twenty-three-year-old jesus army member living on one of the groups farms near bug brooke. He said every morning he commuted half an hour to milton. Keynes worked in unemployment center. At the end of the day he'd be picked up by jesus army brothers and taken to london's soho district from ten. Pm to five am every night he evangelized to drug dealers pimps and sex workers after a long night of outreach. They would all make the nearly two hour drive back to bug brooke. This particular soldier then had just enough time to shower and leave for work to do it all again. Just a typical day in the life of jesus army soldier while the press wasn't glowing knoll didn't seem to mind because the grueling work paid off by december of nineteen eighty-seven the fellowship boasting forty nine households with nine hundred adults and two hundred children living in them. The launch of the jesus army had been the reset knoll had hoped for but even though they were drawing in fresh young members knoll still wasn't content after years spent on the fringes of christian society. Knoll craved validation from traditional church leaders. To help win them. Over in april of nineteen eighty. Eight null sent four hundred. Jesus army soldiers to participate in the march for jesus a massive public event organized by national christian leaders however their reception to nose. Participation was lukewarm. At best they wanted to believe in knowles good intentions. What were cautious in. Light of the fellowships. Recent changes undeterred. No continued his attempts by meeting with nearby pastors. But for all the work he did locally. No was soon rebuffed on a national level in october. The daventry weekly express ran a story about a young potential member who supposedly fled the fellowship after several weeks feeling suicidal and manipulated despite. This continued pushback in the press. No held is course into the new decade. Just like the previous one. No manipulated the trappings of nineties. Youth culture to attract new members the groups events in trafalgar square began featuring airbrush shirts and break dancing no brought back music festivals which held on bank holidays three times. A year at cornhill. The churches in house band played popular sounding tunes. We events drew huge crowds and began with baptisms on friday and continued over the long weekend. Once knoll had new converts on board. He worked to keep them in. The fold. knoll unveiled a new strategy to help with retention by placing recruits on a leadership track. He instituted spiritual mentoring between elders and newly converted young men who'd been identified as potential leaders having targeted those with serious mental health struggles such as addiction and histories of abuse. Knoll needed new leaders because the community had filled up with traumatized individuals. He'd recently emphasized healing through prayer. But not every soul could be mended that way alone however that was all nolan. His leaders were truly equipped offer. These individuals were being counseled not by trained mental health professionals but by religious fanatics in two thousand eight study titled joining and leaving a new religious movement. Researchers for the center of psychology of religion at the catholic university of luba found that membership in a new religious movement compensated for previously existing vulnerabilities like insecure attachment styles. A lack of social relationships and negative life events one of these recruits was a former soldier. He'd been sexually abused as a child and was likely promised healing if he gave himself over to the fellowship. Far from finding that healing in nineteen ninety-two authorities sentenced to forty year old to two years in prison for repeatedly sexually abusing his daughter authorities found that the abuse had gone on for three years and was only discovered when the girl was found crying in convert at her school. The man's defense told the court that he'd contemplated suicide because of his sexual urges since he lived in the small closely monitored community. It's hard to believe that. No one knew what he was doing afterward broke the arrest. The fellowship took a strange approach a leader in the jesus fellowship. Church said that the man would be welcome back into the community after serving his time after all. Christianity was all about forgiveness. The report of the man's crimes reminded the british public about the shadowy side of the fellowship. Unveiling the jesus army had been a successful distraction for a time. A lightning rod drawing. Fire away from the fellowship itself but it's true purpose was recruitment and humans come with all sorts of baggage especially the ones the fellowship courted coming up. The truth of the past is brought into the light resulting in the end of the jesus army. Hi it's greg that it's time for me to tell you about my favorite casual mobile puzzle game best scenes.

Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk
The future of diplomacy in the Twitter era
"You're listening to the foreign desk with me. Andrew Miller on today's show I'm joined by Carolina Age and Richard Seymour Caroliina is independent diplomat cyber security and technology lead. She joins us from Milton Keynes. Richard Seymour is a journalist and author of the twittering machine. He joins joins us here in the studio. Welcome both Richard. I'll start with you and we'll start with. I think first principles we are where we are twitter and social media but twitter twitter in particular new things but the clearly not going anywhere in a hurry or something like the muse going to be something that diplomats will have to deal with breath. Is there any way at all now. You can not be on twitter if you are engaged in diplomacy. Could you just decide to rise above it now. I don't think anybody nobody in power can turned on the communicate of advantages of it but we should be clear that there's different ways of interpreting diplomacy you know if you're talking about making peace if you're talking about striking negotiations all all the rest of it twitter's nor very good platform for doing that. It's much better for showboating and sabre-rattling and grandstanding ending the kind of trump approach. If you like so I would say that really. It's not so much that you can avoid it but if you're really interested in diplomacy it might be a bit of a curse us because what's happening here is that we've got this a very elaborate system of global writing in which the rules have fundamentally changed a no one really fully understands how it's possible that war is being fundamentally rewritten but that is changing the rules and it makes it a nightmare. If you want to do what we would traditionally understand US diplomacy which would involve concessions climbed arms thinks that might be difficult for politicians things that would be difficult to maintain in in a sort of an environmental you know Phibro attention economy you know where everybody's struggling for likes and attention and so on and where a lot of the culture is driven by outrageous sentiment Caroliina are there any ways in which twitter has enabled diplomacy that it's actually made diplomacy easier or better or opened up constructive new ways in which it can be done. I think it has when we think about diplomacy in modern times really really realized in three pillars the first of these international law a complex subset of sort of the legal systems across the world and tweeter always it has very little impact on that but then manure start getting towards the second pillar of political strategy of negotiations of states wanting to achieve certain something in the the international system twitter might rate start playing some sort of a role but the third pillar which is public diplomacy of trying to get your message across I to audiences abroad. I think this is for twitter sort of potential of of just disseminating information in a way we can obviously debate whether it's not always positive information that gets resprayed around but it does have the power of getting messages across and then when we're looking at this third pillar of public diplomacy the twitter can have quite positive impact on on sort of statecraft. Richard does toy into your point. I think about how twitter is a useful tool for showboating. Thank sabre-rattling and grandstanding in fact. That's pretty much all anybody ever does with twitter but to what extent are those useful tools though to any ambassador the all or indeed state. Oh sure I mean there are absolutely vital tools their tools of war so I think it's very clear that if you look at the troll armies that it almost every major nation state has some form of troll army in other words they have paid individuals they have sock puppet spots and all the rest of it who exists to disseminate information that is likely to be destabilizing embarrassing problematic. Maybe fake it may be untrue but is going to cause problems for political industrial and other forms of opponent and even beyond states you think about a formation like the Islamic state which used the Internet to recruit the Grand Army for mobile theocracy never happened before and how did it do it. It did it by creating sewn own version of an online Omar a sort of almost like a national community from which it could draw resources recruits and using Hashtag jacking meaning and all the rest of it so obviously the standards are proving very useful but what's proven to be useful in terms of diplomacy as cyber war is often enough the the anticipated emerging properties of the system like nobody programmed the system for trolling for example that just happened to emerge out of it. Nobody programmed Graham D- Youtube to be good at so called Red pilling that just happens to be a feature of the system so actually I think a big part of our struggle now this to understand not what are the formal protocols and properties of twitter facebook all the rest of it but what are the emergent properties. What are the unintended consequences. What is if you like the unconscious of the
