UK sent coronavirus tests to United States for processing: minister
"Reports of difficulties with increasing the number of tests done and reliable testing kits have not been uncommon during this corona virus pandemic but there's been some disquiet here in the UK after it emerged that about fifty thousand coronavirus test samples had to be sent to the United States for processing because of problems here well let's speak to our political correspondent rob Watson rob Britain now has the second highest number of virus related deaths in the world so this latest problem with the testing must be an embarrassment it is and I would put it this way media I think it's a moment of maximum risk for the government so I'm what I mean by that is that pulling numbers opinion polling numbers have been holding up really well for the government and I am for Boris Johnson since this crisis started but they have been on the way down and of course there have been questions about the protective equipment for frontline health workers and of course particularly about testing and people will remember that the government made a huge deal of this idea that it was going to carry out a hundred thousand tests today by the by the end of April beginning of may they sort of just about manage that but clearly by by some jaggery poker eighth I think people would say and so now it's a now for it to be revealed the fifty thousand tests were done last week in the United States not in the U. K. I think it chips away at that key ingredients so vital for governments and that is trust and after seven weeks of restrictive measures in the U. K. there's a major announcement expected later this evening by the prime minister Boris Johnson what should we look out for us and again there is an awful lot riding on this and Mister Johnson hasn't been particularly visible since he came back from his near death scrape himself with the virus I think what we're looking for is really what what politicians have to do everywhere in the world which is that sort of half full balance between saying how do we keep people safe how do we how do we prevent the spread of the disease or in this case here a second peak how do you balance that against economic collapse now we're expecting the prime minister so on the side of caution that will please some but not all of us I mean it's worth remembering that make many of his own governing Conservative Party a very very uncomfortable about this continuing lockdown and there is unease about the message is expected to unveil stay alerts control of our save lives with a lot of people thinking what on earth does

Human remains are not compost: Catholic authorities
"I take us to California. Where a they're proposing a new law a law that has already taken place in Washington and it's something that is just freaking speaking of the Catholics. They are not okay with this. What what we're talking about here is instead of burial having your body composted into soil. It's lovely it's a great idea. I am so on board with US. Instead of cremation which uses fossil fuels and you know as a polluting thing. Just fucking basically they. Just you know there's there's a company that seattle-based called recompose which I don't like it at all anyway What they do is they. Just put your body in a reusable container with a bunch of wood chips and And then it's open enough airflow through the that you know you get all the the micro-organisms and whatever and it just shoes you down within a month your soil. Well Yeah Your family can take out and like plant a tree in your whatever so I know like most. Come with normal. Composting Guy Again. There and stir it every once in a while. I think it churns churn I think. There's a churning process and oh you're not okay with churning. I want somebody in there with a pitch giving a good well. Let's see Mister Johnson. I think you need another two weeks. Let's we'll just turn in. So do they throw like a bunch of worms? Enter something. My sense is that it's all micro-organisms But maybe there's worms anyway. The Catholics are upset they are basically they denounce it. As an undignified end to a physical body and embalming right ignore fide. What do you think happens when you bury your loved one? Yeah what is it that you're imagining goes on erection right yeah I imagine yeah. It's so imagine the body's kind of sneaking off into the night. Yeah right right something like that. I a spokesperson for the California Catholic Conference said quote we believe that the quote transformation of the remains would create an emotional distance rather than reverence for them. I'm like those tulips that come up every spring. Those are grandma. Yeah that's amazing. Yeah a lot better than just like. Here's Iraq with their name on it right which you can still have. You could still have a headstone a stone monument if you want whatever you want but at least you know with this. You're not can you? Can you put them anywhere? I think so. I think that's like like once it's composted. It's like literally. Just it's it's not there's no risk of of it infecting the groundwater or anything. I think it's just soil at that. Point Amazing Brilliant. Yeah they're not all the religions are objecting to it. There's an episcopal. Priest named Reverend Becca Stevens in Tennessee. Well it was that. I'd just love any a reverend. It's like yeah. There's certain names that don't go with the title. Reverend. I'm a priest. My name is tiffany back. Seems very strange anyway. She seems like a great lady. She's super onboard with the whole With the with the whole goal of composting bodies and she's created a Group A nonprofit. That conserves land and promotes natural burial. Let's tastic I guess. Natural burial is different. But that's just basically put the body in without a casket and a big because right because the law in in like a city in the US is that you gotta have a cement vault vault. Yeah and then the cast and in a casket that goes into the vault and it's just like Nah. Nah Yeah Gross. Don't I'm back that at all? Don't do that no I like. I like the the return.

"Plans for a third runway at London. Heathrow airport have been thrown into doubt after a court ruling. The government's decision to allow the expansion was unlawful because it did not take climate commitments into accounts the court of Appeal said he throws said it would challenge the decision but the government said it would not appeal. The case was brought by environmental groups councils and the mayor of London Friends of the Earth one of the environmental groups that brought the case said the ruling was an absolutely groundbreaking result. Climate Justice will rundle head of legal. The campaign group said this judgment has exciting wider implications for keeping climate change at the heart of old planning decisions. It's time for developers and public authorities to be held to account when it comes to the climate impact of their damaging. Developments Greenpeace said. The government needed to permanently ground. Heathrow's expansion plans the UK's executive director. John Sullivan said the third runway is already on its knees over costs noise air pollution habitat loss and lack of access. Now Heathrow has yet another impossibly high hurdle to clear. Mp's voted overwhelmingly to support Heathrow expansion in two thousand eighteen.

Mister Johnson pledged to lie down in front of those bulldozers and stop the construction of that third runway at Heathrow
Cabinet reshuffle: Chancellor Sajid Javid resigns –
"In Britain a cabinet reshuffle. When the prime minister reorganizes the key figures around him or herself can be dramatic messy even humiliating but most expected. Boris Johnson's first major reorganization. Yesterday would be modest. The economists prediction the night of the short knives. Instead there was an unexpected moment of high drama from such Javid the Chancellor of the Exchequer the Treasury Secretary and Keeper of the National Budget. He resigned coming out. Mr Java might have stayed but he would have had to fire all of his own advisers and replace them with a team appointed by prime minister. Boris Johnson and his chief aide Dominic. Cummings I don't believe any self respected minister would accept such conditions and so therefore I thought the best thing to do was to go in addition to a shakeup in other departments yesterday's people represents a significant erosion of the Treasury's independence. A cabinet reshuffle starts with those ministers. Who are going to be ousted being told by the prime minister that their services may not be required and mckelway a senior editor of the Economist and frequent hunter of Westminster's halls of power. And then those who will get the jobs Invited in one by one and if you remember the fear of being cooled into the head study when you were school I think it feels a bit like that even for seasoned menaces that walk of delight or shame up Downing Street who Press Bank of cameras watching. You can't be an easy one and Mr Java's walkout of that look Saya Javard. The now ex chancellor looked actually pretty confident. Think he was making a point that he was not prepared to take the deal on the terms that was offered by the prime minister. This was such a clash and seems to have taken place will come to a head so quickly that he was. I'm out of here and that was the walk. So the deal that was on offer was that she could stick around only if he basically got rid of his whole team. Why why was that? The deal that was on the table. Boris Johnson elected with a big majority very frustrated. I think in the last parliament by not being able to get on with the business of government as he wants to shape. It fell the Chancellor and the chancellor's team was somewhat in the way so having guaranteed to Mr Jovi that he would keep his job very publicly The end of last year he said well you can keep it. But you can't have this team of advisers around you and I think the underlying tension there is that they had different views about spending. They had different views about some curious of economic policy and that Boris Johnson was affectively. Trying to grab hold of the decision making process. If you don't have your advisers is very hard to put together a strong policy. Perspective could differ from number TANS. Mr Javert Simi said no you lost one adviser on the whim of Downing Street's he wasn't going to lose anymore and I think that will as the store that goes back as he say. So you say this. This was openly down to differences overspending economic policy. How so sergey of it comes from traditional you might call austerity light. He would accept some listening of the course on spending but he would still. I think want some constraint and you would see some risk in splurging splashing the cash. I think Boris Johnson thinks that everything is really changed. He's got this big majority. He can take more risks and the austerity years really needs to be put behind him and he wants to spend money particularly on the north of England in in the places where the Conservatives have made gains because he thinks that will nail down those gains and keep him in power for longer. Vaz's being around that is bubbled between the two of them. The danger here is that the treasury and number ten being too closely aligned has some risks of its own in prime ministers are more interested in short-term political goals rather than longterm fiscal ones and that balances often being a bit up and down in British Political System. And there's often been a bit of a competition but in this example it's happened. Very brutally very swiftly. The power has moved to one end of the soul to Boris. Johnson's view as has happened before with Mister Johnson. There's a lot of talk about the the power dynamic between him and his chief. Aides Dominic Cummings the Some would say power behind the throne. What does this episode to tell you about that dominate Cummings sometimes called the dark Lord around Westminster only home for Jokes? I think is very powerful. Figure had also clashed with Mr. Jarve it I think this decision to be so tough on the chance. That was primarily the prime minister's probably driven on Egged on by his adviser. They've been other arguments. That Dominic Cummings has lost recently so as power is not absolute. But I think if. Boris Johnson Dominic Cummings have a vision of direction? They want government to go. You put yourself in great dangerous administer. If you lie down in the road they will seem irrelevant. You so is that to say then that will end up with the government that is entirely made up of of loyalists of of yes. Men of people living in fear. I'm not sure that will also be yes. Men and women. But it's very clear that you kind of have to get behind the Boris vision of what is important and what is less important. Has He left enough room for independent advice. And for those who think of it differently. Omay send up a warning message. Things that could go wrong. I think that is the great risk. That he's taken here with essentials ation of power over the key decisions which brings us neatly onto Mr Chavez. Replacement. Help Tony me more about him. Richie soon act mid thirty s very trusted by Boris Johnson. Dominic Cummings but also the very interesting backstory is. He has also got a absolutely classic Oxford to banking seavy but as a small boy. He helped his mother who run a pharmacy to to do the adding open and the accounts. He's very good and gifted with numbers that you could say is pretty good going for chancellor always the case it would be. I think unfair to say to someone who's very far already in life and politics. He's only there is a naughty dog. The difference is the constraints are drawn. A kind of course it has been placed the work that he can do the budget's due in four weeks time. We don't know whether it's going to go ahead. But the country needs stability and I think number ten will not want to do it for very long. I think you will differ in some ways from the budget that Mr Javid would have given and in effect it will have to authors one will be the chancellor but the signature very prominently underneath. It will be the big spoiling hand of Boris Johnson. And all of the attention has gone on to to this this this debacle with Mr David and not so much on all of the other Reshufflings within the cabinet. Take a whole. What does that that whole story? Tell you about what Mr Johnson and indeed. Mister Cummings was for Britain. The overall message of the reshuffle is that Brexit is done that those wounds can be healed and that Britain get on selling itself as global Britain in the world. That's confidence not front foot feeling that. Boris Johnson often does exude isn't really particularly balanced left and right cabinet and conservative terms. And that's probably a bit of a difference. He has the majority. He's got the team. He's got the power and now he really wants to go. And that's the feeling it's been put behind this. Let's see where that ends up. And thank you very much for joining us visa.

New UK government brings change and uncertainty
"Week's UK general election saw. Boris Johnson. Lead the Conservative Party to its biggest victory in over thirty years instantly the value of the pound and UK case stocks jumped now that election excitement has died down. We take a look at what to expect from the new government here to discuss this with me on George Polka political editor and Adam. Sampson had a foster. Let's start with brexit given them get brexit done John was the Tory campaign slogan will the UK believing the E. U. at the end of January. And what will that actually mean George. Well certainly expectation is that person will leave on the thirty first of January and the brexit done slogan Surf Bars Johnson extremely well in the campaign captured. I think the mood of the country that whether you're on the remain all the leave side of the debate. There was a bit of a sense that the three and a half years of Political Guinea since the referendum result how to redrawn an end and he's now gone native seat majority which squirrel allow him to deliver his withdrawal bill and to complete the first stage. And it's important to stress the first stage of Brexit on the thirty first of January then of course becomes much more uncomplicated and the real negotiation which is about the future relationship with future trading relationship between Britain and the EU and some people predict that will be even harder and potentially messier and the first part so when will Britain finally leave the EU. In that case well we legally leave on the thirty first of January but then the question is at at. What point do we leave the so-called transition period the standstill arrangement where effectively Britain remains part the same issue trading system under the European Court of Justice? And all the rest of it until a final final agreement is in place now. Boris Johnson has said this week that he will leave on the thirty first of December. Twenty twenty come. What May and indeed he's GonNa put legislation or claws into his withdrawal bill? The will make illegal him to seek an extension of the transition period beyond December. Twenty twenty now. Lots of people doubt whether a really serious trade deal negotiated in such a short space of time. I suspect if there is a trade deal in place by that point it will be very thin one mainly covering goods mainly covering things tariffs and quotas but not fully fledged future relationship that we've been promised and then the second question is if boss Johnson's determined have this new relationship in place on the first of January twenty twenty one. Is it practically possible to have all the systems in place including a new custom system. New checks new border posts a new immigration system potentially all within the space of twelve months. I think that makes an heroic assumption about the ability of white small businesses to make that kind of big adaptations short space of time. And could this also be a rocky time for British unity. The SMP in Scotland is pushing for a second referendum on Scottish independence and Northern Ireland's highlands position could become more precarious as it becomes the border between the EU and the UK. Will indeed. I mean that's one of the ironies of this whole brexit process. Assessed that in taking out of the European Union is Boris Johnson unst itching the United Kingdom of course Scotland and Northern Ireland both very strongly to remain part of the European Union. The fact that there's a resentment north of the border in Scotland about Brexit has created a situation where forty eighth out of the fifty nine seats in Scotland went to the Scottish National Party which wants a second independence referendum in Scotland. Boris Johnson said no so far. But it doesn't take that much. Imagination to concede that Scotland could become a bit like Catalonia with with a grievance festering people demanding the right to have another say on their future and in the case of Northern Ireland. Is You mentioned. Schoener the deal that Boris Johnson struck will leave Northern Ireland effectively within the economic space of the European Union in the customs union but name and the single market therefore the border between the mainland of Great Britain and Northern Island. For the first time and again you know people in Northern Ireland we'll be looking to Dublin or Brussels to protect their interests. SARS the economy's concerned rather than London. It's obvious obvious. That's unraveling the unions certain extent. Boris Johnson calls himself the Minister of the Union that so tightly gave himself after became prime minister. But that's going to be a big job for him and number ten to try to keep the Union of the UK together. Also the same even European Union now the conservative manifesto sketched out plans for constitutional institutional change. So what differences. Can we expect to see well a slightly strange page forty eight which is quite slight infamy in In politics where it talks about a whole range of constitutional changes whether it's the future of the House of Lords or the relationship between parliament and the Supreme Court which of of course famously became very heavily involved in British politics in the autumn and stop Boris Johnson closing down parliament's at a crucial moment in the brexit process. So there's lots of unspoken unspoken intent there about doing something about changing the system. If you like and Boris Johnson's chief advisor Dominic Cummings is basically a revolutionary who thinks the British. The system is bust. He thinks that the Brexit vote illustrated the distance that a grown up between many parts of the UK left behind person if you like 'em the elites that run the country whether it's in the media or the courts or the politicians and he wants to turn it on its head now part gets in. This mission is an open question. That's going to be a review of constitutional setup up in the country which will take at least a year. It'll be interesting to see how far postal prepared to go down that route. But certainly there's a real energy and almost revolutionary zeal about the people around Boris Johnson number ten and within government. A new business department and changes to foreign aid are on the cards. What are these going to look like well? That's the other thing that's Dominic Cummings. Mister Johnson's advisor wants to do. He previously worked as an adviser in whites-only thinks that basically the British civil services Pretty hopeless he thinks they they tolerate failure. There's lots of blame passing no reward for imaginative thinking and he wants to turn the British system on its head as well and one of the things that traditionally percents proud of his value has a permanent civil service which carries on doing the job. Even when there's a change of government very different of course to the American system where you have a complete sea change in Washington every four years potentially but Dominic Cummings said in the past. He thinks that's civil. Servants should be fight if they do about Joplin generally for life at the moment and he's also talking about a a big change in the number of government departments. So you mentioned that two of the most interesting ones. One is the idea of folding into the Foreign Office the Department of International Development which has a very big budget thirteen in billion pounds burst Johnson. Things could be better deployed inside. The Foreign Office is part of a wider global Britain foreign policy and business policy on the other one is the idea of turning the business department much bigger department covering international trade for example almost like a department of economic affairs pushing this agenda. That boss Johnson has trying finds a push wealth out of the prosper southeast of the UK out to the North and the Midlands. Now if I can turn to you Adam how has the business community reacted into this conservative. Victory sure so business. Confidence was very very subdued for a while for a year and a half in the run-up to this election over brexit over the gridlock. So I I think. The community breathed a collective sigh of relief. I least that Boris Johnson has a decisive victory. He has a majority he can push things through a lot of business. Leaders leaders reason the phrase clarity on policy that kind of thing it also averts a no deal outcome at least in the short term over the next several months. I think that was all seen as as a positive however I think there are many longer term doubts as far as what this is going to look like George. You mentioned earlier that it's very unclear as to whether there's going to be another cliff edge brexit in in a few months from now so I think well people are cautiously optimistic in the business community at the moment. There's a lot of doubts about what this looks like in the long run. So so what will the new government mean for business. Can we expect to see a tidal wave of investment after Brexit as Boris Johnson has promised so kind of said there there may be a short-term boost in investment. That just been like you said pent up. You know in the months of gridlock and over brexit concerns and it may be that boost growth in the short run as well. Maybe over the next few quarters early next year but again there's a lot of doubt as to what exactly the economy looks like go into the end of next year whether we have a rerun of exactly this drama that we saw over the past few months taking place again and there's just the economic forecast is shrouded in doubt at the moment I would say and what has been the reaction to the election in the markets so the mercury actions been quite interesting sterling. Shot up more than two percent after the exit poll on Thursday. They night a really big rise for a currency like the pound. The next day you K- markets were up substantially especially domestic facing stock so homebuilders her certain banks companies. That were at risk of nationalization from Jeremy Corbin's plans but what we've seen after that is a significant fall back in the pound found in fact the pounds now given up all of its gains from after the election outcome over those doubts about what exactly brexit's going to look like and I think specifically this I did there may be a cliff. Edge Breaks Leumi now at the end of two thousand twenty and Just you know these persistent doubts about what Boris Johnson's political plans will be. We still have uncertainty going forward. It looks like it seems like there's deep uncertainty among investors and business executives. Well thanks George and thank you Adam and thank you for

yeah I think I keep that car to I wouldn't want to do anymore relatives bad things happen when you know how hard the relatives I'm just gonna borrow it for the afternoon or anybody it it's just things happen her still Russ what you think they did what they all right computers done because he's got blown fusible links which means that the voltage reached where I wanted to go inside and this isn't cool and blew the thing they most of them done more than a little quick spark yeah and there's a few there's there are few things on this car they pride themselves like they turned a kia there's a few things on this car that have the capability of blowing those fusible link so if when you get some of the older cars where you've just got lighting will lighting you can hook up any direction positive negative it doesn't care it'll still light but modules they're done radios will Postum of computers will post them and when he's pouring fuel and and it's you know we don't recommend that but he did it and it fired you know that will without fire hopefully up the engine started that tells me that the distributor in the module made it at least that far worse still have spark but it needs the engine computer the ECM in order to give the fuel injection soul on a gas I would say that's probably a likely cause and being at the age of the car it's definitely will be going to be a place where you have to go to our partner Kurdish part to look for because they at local yard is gonna be really hard there will be one out there I'll just about bet money the big computer out there for that on card as part dot com yep just probably not right at home because it's an eighty four and there's just not a lot of yard anymore they're still driving in a lot of areas like yours so it's probably gonna need a computer if you check and make sure all your power is working you don't have any blown fuses all the fuse links are good now when you turn the ignition key on if that check engine light does not glow then the computers dead it's not or or wiring issue but if we know we've got power to the computer if you don't have a light it's not working we used to test of that well the time we turn the key if we can see a check engine light we go right to the computer check farm ground if we got it we put another one in when you turn the key un instilled vehicles as they the system's going through a self test it's kind of going around touching or or touch all the bases a good I'm good I'm good I'm good no matter what could be wrong with this car fan and it's got to be in less you see the whole harnesses melted from one end to the other it's it's very interested and very hard to fix yes if you need to buy a computer and if I can find one for fifty two hundred but yeah I'm now going to picture my car going through like the NASA mission control every time like the computers talk and they it's exactly what's going on is making a call to most every module in the car here is that as you approach for tire pressure monitor on them you walk up your car with your key follow yeah are starting to get yeah hi I'm totally that's going to answer these aerials are turning to be IBM here this module Jack let's go back to Arizona and talk to Lynn Lynn you're only under the hood show what can we do for yeah I have a two thousand thirteen Ford fiesta I bought it like a beard and sail and directly from Ford over in that way and then I thought I had similar some some problems with it my main problem and I bought a fresh and now has the thirty thousand miles on it it's the engine light keeps coming on he came on actually from day one that I had at the problems with the car that I was working with them so when the engine light comes on it I I I I I I asked by us Ford when I was moved very slowly since then a slight calling you from Arizona anyway so it's like is that it's like they they they they kept saying this is nothing wrong with that lady it's it's running fine and I kept saying but the engine light keeps coming on and they said well if we're gonna do a diagnostic this critical issue of such under thirty five dollars it's not well I've had residentially hand movement all this was going on and I get to Arizona there's a nice wireless just down the a few of the four miles from me number two Riley's like the petroleum on it and check this out and they should they did and I because I think it's coming from the gas well I know basic things about cars and so they said to me they they checked his neck and yes it looks like it's coming from feel one and the engine light will come on again and valleys becoming more frequent I'm thinking maybe it's from the heat so I covered the above with the the alone and reflector stuff and over over from the driver's side to the radio that's about all the money I had to buy that we think before so you went to the RV place and had to cut it her yard and it seems like to stop that and then it started up again so I go though Riley's again Mr yet looks like it's the same thing maybe do you still feel SO nine ounce of selling the feel yeah this is this is yeah that's my problem and now it came on the other day and I got I got a fuel cap for a box to **** because if you ever have a cap on right just the lid closed in the lake so I thought well let's try that and it seemed like it was working this was about two months ago and then like last week they came on but that is just so far well I I wanted when I turn the car off I returned to the left I think I returned it back on and it took that gas cap off and then report about gun and when I started the next thing that's when the it's it's it's stopped it didn't come on then it came on and then finally now it's come off again I don't know if I need help well if you have that code stand and it's related to that fuel cap in that area it's gonna say evaporative emissions system small leak or largely Kerr grossly and if that's the case it's something in the fuel vent system which is either the cap the filler neck which are two very big issues on on a lot of cars especially that one order the emissions canister under the vehicle or the vent valve in the back all those can be prone to that now while they won't affect the way the vehicle operates running it will turn that light on so at least you know that that particular single item if that's all it is won't cause a car to die going down the road or not start but it will keep that light on which is kinda irritating so and you know the good folks at a rally auto parts have that that service will they'll check your codes hello available and that is that a good thing to give you an idea which way to go you might ask them folks a who's a good local independent repair shop that they do business with that they could send you to to do a little more diagnostics on this because that's not going to be something that you're going to be able to fix by just plugging into a cold and looking at there's enough there components in the system but ask them for some advice now that that Ford dealer when you talk to them of course you know there they got to pay the way and and if they're gonna hook equipment to it and that's way most shops are gonna be known days if they've got to spend some time on it it's probably going to cost some money and you know we're gonna wanna make sure just ask them they might have some advice of a maybe a smaller overhead shop that can work a little less expense to do that checking for you up that's the kind of things you can hunt for when you start looking but we appreciate you being a hoodie out there in Arizona and I hope you get this bad gas problem figured out soon thanks very much for the call that'll do it for this hour of the under the hood shell and if you're like us and you've woken up this week to winter it might be time to get some parts and make your vehicle's better for winter yeah if you haven't looked under your hood in well if you can't remember when you last looked under your hood chances are it could be time for a tune up find out and if you do need to know parts if you've got a four vehicle by all means our partners at Motorcraft or who we recommend to get we am quality parts that are going to be finished last like the originals did all.

Britain rolls the dice with a snap election in December Read
"Boris Johnson is rolling the dice the British prime minister had been pushing for a national election and now he's got it the vote is scheduled for December twelfth so it's back to the campaign trail for Johnson's Conservative Party to make the case for brexit polls indicate that Johnson's party is solidly ahead of the main opposition Labour Party but wait a second this is brexit and that means it's impossible to guess how this will all eventually shake out here's the world's Orla Barry in London in Britain elections do not come every four years like they do in the US politicians here set the date for a national vote strategically the idea is to choose the right time and give your party the best chance for success at the polls what could possibly go wrong the headlines this morning after two mulches election night the UK has a hung parliament to resume his decision to call an election as back followed with a conservative short of an overall Commons majority prime minister may fail spectacularly in twenty seventeen break this was ultimately her down full the bars Johnson seems to think that history will not for peace itself one way to get it done in the face of the only thing the people Mister speaker to refresh the people the choice the main opposition leader is Jeremy Corbyn from the labor party he's not just focusing on breaks us open promises a progressive future for Britain focused on income inequality climate change and improve government services I am very ready to go out there and give that message in any election whenever it comes but just how much of a risk is oldies for Boris Johnson he's the frontrunner in the polls the solid to eleven point lead for his Conservative Party over labor that might sound encouraging but rob Watson the BBC senior political correspondent says this is a high risk strategy for the conservatives brexit as admitted if you like a shock to the British political system to to vote says another fax that's worth remembering that as those of volatility and and the you campaign it used to be on there and the good old days people were amazingly loyal to that process but now people switch pots as and and and the way that they might switch kind of brands of washing powder so you know it is an inherently very risky approach cumple in day they're usually a number of key issues that influence people's decisions health care and immigration with the big ones last time around this time though it seems there really is just one issue look brexit as this oversized elephants and this very tiny room in the entire reason why the election is happening is because Britain's politicians couldn't agree on what to do about the results of the referendum in twenty sixteen certainly the governing conservatives Mister Johnson wants to make it about brexit some of those policies which house it out and see brexit Ponce's by absolutely want to make it about brexit and say this is your last chance to stop Britain leaving the E. U. to the voters says there's another problem with changing an election in mid December it's a couple of weeks before Christmas for starters but this will also be Britain's tears election in four years and it's fair to say that the public here is already suffering with considerable breaks it fatigue B. B. C. talk to some voters on the streets of Birmingham this week they're not sure another election we bring much change I think politically at the moment everything is of the CMS and it has been a mess for a couple of years I think the country just one at the instability now I'm not sure whether in an action can give that breaks is a different issue that what if it happens if it doesn't happen my main point of concern is how are we to the country forward possibly we're going to get virtually nowhere with for Christmas election campaign is only a little over five weeks long but it looks like it could be a deeply divisive one this week opposition MP Heidi Allen with the Liberal Democrats announced she's not running for reelection because of the abuse she's been guessing the unbelievable amounts of loss of privacy and no sickness that sent out that you are touched on a daily basis on the mound station media people shout to even the straight it's come up said it a vial I thought I could carry around a particular list email last week I thought you know what nobody in the working place should have to put up with this no matter what happens with the bulls in December the British public would have to put up with the brakes at issue for some time to come the latest break the deadline is January thirty first of next year and even if breaks it does happen it'll only be the beginning of a long complicated process of leaving the European Union once and for all for the wild I'm one of Bari in
Brexit: EU agrees to Brexit delay, but no date yet
"European Union ambassadors agreed today to grant the United Kingdom of brexit extension beyond next Thursday but they haven't said how long that extension will be British prime Minister Boris Johnson said yesterday he'll give parliament more time to debate his brexit deal but only if lawmakers approve an early general election let's bring in BBC correspondent Rob Watson in London Hi Rob Hi things as clear as ever on brexit never do seem to clear up can we say for sure though that the UK is not going to crash out of the EU without a deal next Thursday. I think that does seem amazingly unlikely despite Boris Johnson's rather unwise a promise that he would rather die in a ditch agreed to an extension of the brexit process oops so what happens next in parliament then goodness gracious well the most important thing is to find out whether or not MP's are prepared to vote for general election as Mister Johnson proposed on on the twelfth of December on I have absolutely no idea yeah whether they will or not I mean I think it's amazing unlikely that opposition parties when agreed to do things exactly as Boris Johnson once but I mean Mandalay keep putting off an election forever probably not so if they say no next week to a general election then what happens well I suspect they'll be sort of a hagler of a want to do next but it's important it's important to remember this why do the Conservatives Mister Johnson wants a general election and once can be surprised because the opinion polls suggests they would win why does the main opposition party of a bit more reluctant because they have seen the same polls Jeremy I it's difficult to see exactly what the a Ford is almost I'm I suspect that the the the leader of the opposition party Jeremy Corbyn is that sort of Chap I think he's rather looking forward to some kind of campaign but those this policy a single hang on a minute this is look at the polls we'd be absolutely crazy let's either a try and get an a second referendum first ahead of a general election all sort of just play a long game just to land the land lion hope that something turns up is a general election if one happens soon really like a second referendum though a lot of people have made that case that that kind of is referendum you either say I'm with you Boris Johnson I wanNA get out or against you Boris Johnson I don't want Britain to leave the European Union I think the answer is yes and no and I think that certainly way the way the Conservative Party would like it because this is going to be you know we all the parties brexit Don I should say by the way in parenthesis that it's a rather effective immensely disingenuous message and we'll be discussing our relationship with the European Union for decades to come whether whether there's a deal or not but that's what Mr Johnson wants and one of the opposite under two of the opposition parties Scottish nationalist and the Liberal Democrats are out and outlets reverse brexit parties but it's different with the other with the other party the main opposition Labor Party and and here's the thing you know whether you want it to be about brexit or not exclusively general election that's just not the way elections work I mean look at it involves forty five million eligible voters anything can happen no doubt other issues other events may intrude on that that's the way of course which you might argue yes you could ever general election but it could settle nothing in a couple of ways and that in that one party may not get an absolute majority and you go back to this what we've just been discussing I'll have the sort of sense well actually did it really subtle Brexit BBC political correspondent Rob Watson we will be seeing you next week in London Rob Get the beer too temperature for us I know that's how you like it in the UK.

Additional Charges in College-Admissions Cheating Scandal
"Errands in college admissions cheating scandal are now facing additional charges it off workplace series continues with a look at who speaks in meetings women who are not remembered for what they say are often the ones who have trouble getting promoted boss I of the thought trees this is what's news from the Wall Street Journal I'm Kim Get I'll send let's get started now are we take a closer look at the new charges facing some of the parents and the college admissions cheating scheme and why they were introduced. Here's what you missed diplomat Bill Taylor the acting. US Ambassador to Ukraine said in closed door testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday that President Trump made nearly four hundred million dollars in aid contingent on the Ukraine in President Investigating Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden White House Press Secretary Stephanie Gresham said in a statement quote president trump has done nothing wrong there was no quid pro quo and we mentioned yesterday in our afternoon edition that Boris Johnson's Brexit plan passed a key hurdle the bill was approved by British lawmakers but that victory for Mister Johnson well it was short lived just minutes later lawmakers rejected his timetable for debating and formerly approving the bill that means that his goal of leaving the European Union by October thirty first is looking unlikely from London Jason Douglas has more on what happens next the first thing that we're waiting for is what the European Union says about an extension so Boris Johnson issue member had to request one another Europeans are going to decide exactly how long extension is on whatever they come back with kind of color what actually happens next so it expect them to simply do the UK requested which is graphic extension January thirty first probably with some wriggle-room that if you pass the deal sooner you can leave sooner and then bars Johnson says a choice either he goes for an election and I and I would winning a majority so that so that he can then pass the deal or tries to pass the deal I go into an election having said I did brexit Autumn will of course keep you updated on all the brexit twists and turns and two departures for you the first is Nike's long-term Chief Executive Mark Parker sure he'll step down in two thousand twenty after nearly fourteen years in the top job he'll be replaced by John Donahue who is a former Ebay chief executive we report that Mr Parker's departure marks a strategic shift for Nike it seemed strong sales but also been beset by a string of PR crises and Boeing's Commercial clean chief Kevin mcallister is also leaving it's the first high-level ouster from Boeing since the 737 Max crisis began Boeing reports its third quarter thanks today and analysts are expecting that will take more charges as a result of the crisis now our main story this morning it has to do with a new development and the college admissions cheating scandal a little over half thirty-five parents facing charges have played guilty but a new twist came late yesterday when prosecutors introduced new charges against eleven holdouts Charlie Turner has been finding out more from Melissa corn at the hearing and Boston Melissa Eleven parents who were allegedly involved in the nationwide college admission cheating scandal are facing additional charges what do prosecutors accused them of now so prosecutors have now added a charge for most of them regarding what's called Federal Graham Bribery essentially bribing an organization or a state or something like that that accepts at least ten thousand dollars in federal funds oh it's almost A quasi arm of the federal government so they can charge them at the federal level and this is as we say in addition to the original charges which I believe include honest services on services fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy so they most of them now have three charges against them know who are some of the defendants some of them obvious Really high-profile right so more than half of the parents have now pleaded guilty but there are still sixteen out there that have pleaded not guilty and they include actress Laurie Lachlan fashion designer Massimo g a newly former T G growth head bill mcglashan and so definitely still some big bold faced names here from your Article Melissa I'm kind of wondering this have prosecutors sort of struggled at times to make a case with as you write that you know they struggled Oh identified damages and victims in the case I guess with regard to William Rick Singer talk about that right so the prosecutor say there's definitely a crime here it's just kind of hard to explain why so the idea that this is based on an honest services fraud that there's you know the the these people are depriving the companies the employers of their honest of on a services of their employees of the coaches and things like that by having these bribe arrangements tough sell it's a complicated charge and the Probation Office when compiling pre sentencing reports for some of the people who pleaded guilty didn't declared that there wasn't a clear financial loss for the victims and the prosecutors say the victims are the colleges and the testing agencies so one of the reasons that they might have added this chart which is it offers kind of an alternative way of looking at the alleged crimes in a way that the public potential jurors potential judges this can better understand and wrap their heads around. I get the impression that cheating or lying on a college application is not a crime in itself no but there are elements of it that can be crimes if you're taking financial aid if you're getting benefits of some sort from the school of any value then it's fraud going forward what kind of hurdles do the defendant face in this case it's a tough battle for some of the defendants some of the defendants attorneys are saying these were just donations made to the university he's through an intermediary these were not bribes and that's the Line of defense that they're taking there are a few different defense theories that are now moving forward that's probably the most common and yes schools do accept donations and in some cases give preferential treatment to the families of those who donated but it doesn't quite explain the alley prosecutors allegations regarding these fake athletic profiles and essays that had false references to these ethnic feats so that's a bit of a tough nut to swallow against these defendants against these defendants yes there are again a number of different defense approach says here but for these defendants it's it's certainly not an easy when there's a reason why a lot of parents did plead already lawyers for many of the

Unionists in Northern Ireland Feel Betrayed by Brexit Deal
"Britain and the European Union has struck could you brexit deal with British prime minister Boris Johnson faces quite a struggle to get it through parliament this weekend in an extraordinary sitting where he's will have their say one of the government's key allies northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party has warned it will vote against the plan because in affected tools in U. customs border in the Irish Sea in the northern item we have a different status to the rest of the U. K. the more we can speak to the B. B. C. U. K. political correspondent rob Watson well we're gonna get into parliamentary mass shortly but first in what way is this different from former prime minister Theresa may still good morning James glowing group I'm good morning everyone well in many ways it is and I'm in about ninety percent of it is absolutely exactly the same but it differs in two key ways seven sons of the of the withdrawal agreement pots with the divorce but if you like the bit that's legally binding will become a treaty I mean that are essentially a Mister Johnson paid the price if you like for one single Hans Breck says with Northern Ireland I mean it's a brutal way of putting it but essentially under this Dale Norman island will have a different relationship with the European Union to the to the rest of the U. K. and a lot of calls is why the Democratic Unionist Party that Protestant possible come ons them in a second so fed up the second man which is differences and then the other bit which isn't legally binding the political decoration which looks forward to the future license ship off the divorce I mean that there it's clear again Mr Johnson once a much more distant relationship between the European Union and the U. K. right I I know everyone in parliament's will go along with that what's the matter saying right now well I was thinking when it when it was sitting here waiting for you to come three times I think about it look old James wants to know everybody listening as if I was going to happen in the vote was robe and then and then I can say I don't know and I'm just gonna go and pull my second Cup of tea of the day so looks what's what's your question I don't know it looks incredibly tight the BBC we have a unit down at Westminster of colleagues who who look at what every single am PS seven the last time I looked at that school that this way which was three hundred and seventeen votes for the government three hundred and twenty two against but obviously yeah Mr Johnson is going to be engaged in a and a massive operation of of charm persuasion arm twisting between now and sense the lunchtime charm persuasion on Tristen sure what about a some suggested bucket loads of cash heading towards an old an island in one form or another I'm not corruption I'm not suggesting that by any means but but things to sweeten the deal I mean I think that that certainly possible but but here's the thing the is back to where I started uniform was being brutal what is the price of Mister Johnson's breaks up and where is it different from what Mrs may sodomizing differed so much more himself inside it's Norman on and I mean Norman on and will be treated differently now if you are a member of the Democratic Unionist Party what is their raise all natural water they exist for is to preserve the union between Britain and Northern Ireland I mean that's that's what they're about that's what really floats their boat right and and so they think that any arrangement which makes Northern Ireland the province last close economically that's the rest of the U. K. that could be the beginning of the end time that could be the beginning of of Northern Ireland becoming closer to to Dublin and sets up so it's a Brussels so one suspects on such a matter of principle but of course I may be horribly wrong I think you know no matter how much money off of them it's it wouldn't do it well promotions being Harvey right so much things as I five a brexit we'll see if that streak continues and MPs in parliament this weekend for that crucial
Tusk to Johnson: Brexit not 'stupid blame game'
"Britain's chief bricks of the guys said to David frost is holding for the talks in Brussels today on the government's two proposals for leaving the European Union on October the thirty first the prime minister Boris Johnson the German chancellor Angela Merkel levels have been discussing how to break the current deadlock box at the same time the government officials told the BBC that the British government is preparing for a break down of those talks this week it follows the publication of a series of texts in the spectator political magazine on Monday from an official in the prime minister's office which claimed that and I could if the deal dies in the next few days then it won't be revised let's speak to a political correspondent rob Watson said rob what Annette is going on well I think this is a a truly dramatic moments and the press pros that someone I know it's been a pretty dramatic all along to them but this is an extraordinary moment because this tax ma'am I want to be like to call it does come from a senior number ten official we think it is from a Michael Dominic Cummings Mister Johnson's chief of staff and if you remember the man he was the brains behind the vote leave campaign want significant because you have to be blind as a pact not to see the message coming from number ten and that is that the vessels that with the E. or about to fail are they going to say it's it's gonna be the E. U.'s fold and that we have I'm going to play tough we're going to try and do our best to still leave the European Union even the facts will out of jail the end of October and if we have to fight a general election we're gonna blame those in the U. K. who stood in the way as they would say it of practice at and those in the European Union he stood in the way of brexit I mean it is a truly still missing moments to them clearly aware of this the European Council president Donald says because accuse Mister Johnson of engaging in a stupid blame game he has a lot I can finish the rest of the tweet for you Julian because it's not extraordinary that's how it came out of that it's at stake is the future of Europe and the U. K. as well as the security in and trust of our people you don't want to Dale you die once the extension you don't want to revoke clove obvious which for those who don't know lance and as you know well enough you guy and of course very pointed to land and that's missed the Tuscan knows of calls that Boris Johnson who this is directed that started lacks it indeed here in Oxford to Mister Johnson than full could possibly blame the European Union for the break down all of negotiations but that doesn't life make life any easier for him necessary doesn't know and I think look a bit of context him and I think one of the reasons why Downing Street has got so incredibly aggressive it is it also reflects the fact that Mister Johnson is in a tight spot on that to some extent he has lost control of the brexit process it's sort of it suggests that these doubling down on the back of the sort of basically taking the view look my very political survival depends all on delivering brexit and that's why I'm that's why anti the gloves are off but it's immensely risky it may put off the vote says it may be put off even some of his own government so I will Britain believing the European Union on October the thirty first question I'm glad time was running out I don't know okay well we'll have to leave it there with a bit of a gap the term rob anything subs on political correspondent rob
Will Johnson's Irish Border Plans End Brexit Impasse?
"It's taken a long time but this week as the UK's prime minister put it the rubber hit the road Boris Johnson made formal proposals to the European Union for how Britain should leave crucially he proposed that the politically sensitive territory of Northern Ireland should be treated differently from the rest of the U. K. it would remain inside the E. U. single market observing east standards and regulations but outside the customs union that would lead to duties on items crossing the Irish border and some customs checks but not he stressed the Irish border which is seen so much turmoil in the past arrangements for the Irish border we're one of the reasons the deal push forward by Mister Johnson's predecessor to resa may fail to win support well this one do any better question for Adam Fleming in Brussels and first our political correspondent rob Watson I think the short answer is I don't know I mean let's say on the one hand he's got a problem in that all the opposition parties of lined up and said look this is rubbish this is worse than to reason may still and don't forget the main opposition party the labor party it said that it wants a deal that I've that caps Britain and a customs union and the trading relationship with you also the crime much like it on the other hand if you think of this as an equation things about the form with parts of his Conservative Party so those on the rights of the party that was a very very pro brexit they like it and they like it partly because of this much brought a message that we've got from Boris Johnson and that is that his vision of a post brexit Britain is about having a far more distant relationship with the U. economically and politically than it has now and they like that kind of stuff additionally those on what might be called the mole pro European wing of the Conservative Party how would I describe them with the sick is pretty desperate right I mean they know the terrible damage that the kind of continuing crisis of a brexit is doing to the government to that policy so in that sense he has a bit more of a tail wind from his I'm. okay so a bit of a mixed message there Adam how was the plan received in Brussels it was a big mix here as well because there was initially a positive reaction the fact that the government had made proposals that's all and the fact that a big center piece of those proposals was northern Ireland's potentially continuing to follow E. U. rules on foods agriculture and manufactured goods which went a lot further than Boris Johnson being prepared to go before but since then lots of concerns have emerged and I think the concerns weigh the positive as well as it did in Brussels or here in the U. K. it sort of depends on what you think is the worst option right I mean do you think what's worse is possible negative impacts on Northern Ireland peace process possible threats to the integrity of the single market customs union on the one hand or do you think it would be even worse to have a no jail brexit or extensions the brexit and a continuation of all the uncertainty I'm gonna think it's as brutal as that when we've reached the point that nobody is thinking of the really smart the best option would pay is what the people think is the least worst run there's a suspicion that Boris Johnson was really serious about this new plan that his heart isn't really in these negotiations at what he's really looking towards is just finding a way to get out of the E. U. at the end of October or to think about what's happening in the next set of elections is that fair well it certainly one theory and it was sort of encouraged by his most senior advice of putting out memos to that effect but look there are these two thirds the one he knows that there's no chance of what he's looking towards as a general election that basically puts those who voted leave in twenty sixteen against everybody else you know you've been frustrated by parliament by the E. you vote for may I mean another theory is that he's perfectly serious about trying to get a deal because they've looked to wanna know deal brexit mites involved and it looks pretty ugly Adam there's a suggestion that what Boris Johnson his long. her vision for the UK is to forge a new much less cozy relationship but the E. U. and for brexit to bring a very firm break between the two sides is the E. U. preparing for this too yeah that sort of thing that has run through the E. U.'s stance on breaks it since the very beginning what sorts of economic model will the U. K. process you after brexit and how will that model interact and competes with the E. U.'s economic model and that is why a big part of the deal that was done with Boris Johnsons predecessor to reason may included measures on what's called the level playing field which would see the U. K. basically sign up to continuing E. U. rules on the environment on labor standards and things like that now that is something that Boris Johnson wants to depart from in his deal he wants the UK to have much more of a blank sheet of paper to decide what kind of economic model it will follow then the U. says fine well if that's what you want to do then perhaps this very generous free trade agreements that we offer to to resume with no tariffs or quotas and really good access to the single market will no longer be available because the be a sliding scale off how much access to get to the single market based on how closely you follow the European model that is a debate though that will rates for the next few years will be in the next five or ten years as that trade agreement gets hammered out if it ever
Boris Johnson's plans for Irish border checks threaten Brexit talks
"Rex it now and the British prime minister Boris Johnson says the reality of brexit is that they will need to be customs checks on the island of Ireland after the U. K. these youth and Mister Johnson denies reports that the UK's proposing a series of posts close to the Irish border to carry out customs checks off the brexit the key issue of avoiding a return of a physical infrastructure on the border between the Republic of Ireland which is an E. U. member state and Northern Ireland which will leave the E. U. has its positive the U. K. is the issue that has vexed this country for months question by the BBC's Nick Robinson today the prime minister dismissed some of the reports about a possible hold border in Ireland yesterday at the suggested that there would be a string of border use not only are rich bold but not fall back are you saying that simply isn't true yes that's not what we're proposing a tool you can say. people who think there will be a whole a bold and just a few miles away from the apps in old absolutely you know and then there were very good reasons why that would not be a good idea and I think everybody who's familiar with the situation in in it are the norm now then comes time why we would would pay for but for for for for practical reasons and and also you know for for reasons of sentiment that we typically take the on the star wedding continued questioning about border posts on the Irish border the prime minister said there must be some checks so Minh autumn say there should be no checks anywhere on the island via the net they call the holding of the border they say it will begin to principles Good Friday agreement people say forget made the call to be check somewhere if we're going to be in a different economic arrangements well I'm with the second group Nick because that's just the reality and I think that what we're coming up to now is as it were the critical moment of choice for us as friends and partners apart how we proceed because in the end a sovereign United country must have a single customs territory and when the U. K. withdrawals from the E. U. that must be the state of affairs that we haven't but there are plenty of ways in which we can facilitate north south trade plenty ways which we can address the problem. the U. K. prime minister Boris Johnson speaking to my colleague Nick Robinson what a short time ago I spoke too much talk about Ron who is the managing director of the Eurasia group in Europe it's a political risk research and consulting firm only the U. K. site there is a a suggestion view the details have been leaked all redundant because they come from an old paper from a couple of weeks ago and actually the government is fully committed to also kinda border US possible not a string of customs controls and not actually more detail around these proposals is going to be forthcoming over the course of the next few days so distancing frankly the government's position from the details I will be yesterday now on the European side I think frankly the suggestions the details from yesterday have gone down very badly the Irish government is if if you thought these are essentially equivalent to the kinda plans they would be to implement in a no deal scenario so the idea that the Irish prime minister could sell these in a deal scenario is is friendly politically announced officer in Dublin and then of course the role of the questions and concerns the east side has been talking about for a very long time what's the border fully open that call be controls on the island the filing and all those problems remain so I think the two sides of very far pulse at the moment when you say that the U. K. is distancing itself from what has been leaked is there any suggestion that the leaks form the basis of what the UK government is actually thinking yes they do I think the starting position for the UK government now different to Theresa may is stop brexit create consequences and changes on the island of Ireland not least the return of the border. and what the government is trying to do with its proposal is to soften the border dot will necessarily return is a result of brexit to reason may and had to go she ate all the rope it's had a very different approach in December two thousand and seventeen they committed to essentially no change on the island lies in full status quo and the way they deliver thought was obviously through this box stopping the backstop is is the vehicle that delivers both regulate realignment but also a single customs territory. Johnson now once the U. K. to be in a single customs territory Northern Ireland England Scotland Wales and believe that is absolutely essential for state sovereignty for the U. K. after brexit but obviously creates a north south border albeit one not softened so so the acknowledgement on the pulse of the U. K. government on the Boris Johnson that they will need to be customs checks what is it that we are specifically talking about all the differences in terms of the kinds of goods that are being looked at is agriculture being seen as separate from manufacturing goods actually what's new about the leaks yesterday's more details about how the government believes the border will operate in a world where Boris Johnson delivers an agreement and ultimately a long term vision and the vision of brexit bodies I can tweak how the distal free trade agreement in that unit how does the Irish border operates and the U. K. believes that will need to be controls on either side of the border that regulate power it's not regulate things like rules of origin that there will be a degree of regulate tree equivalent. the European side has many problems with this I think firstly from that perspective you cannot separate how regulations and customs everything on the European side stall and works on the basis of its customs framework so in order for that to be any trade with the E. U. thank you I need to engage with the E. U. customs framework a second big problem is awful the government's proposals to work is very dependent on a lots of exemptions and it's not Claire the easier side is willing to make those exemptions third big problem is it relies on technology in the U. side but very clear about the kind of technology the government is talking about is not going to be ready until the medium term so this gives you a flavor of some of the ideas that are a problem for the ears site based on what the government's currently proposing and in terms of the bigger picture all of approaches and asks you choose we know that the E. U. side to saying that they're willing to continue to talk. since the patience is running thin that if you if you want to start from a base of zero and build something completely new there's very little time to do that I think really now the next few days absolutely critical to the government's plans involving away thought dork feels it can engage in it so I think what we'll see from both sides is this idea of a tunnel when negotiators are such begin a lock themselves away and trying to hammer out a legal text the ultimately results in a deal among European heads of state in a few weeks time at this October European Council so the next few days will give us a sense of whether a tunnel is a realistic possibility or not if it is in the terms of the deal in October increase but I think in order for it to happen Boris Johnson is going to have to be you pretty much fully towards the E. U. position which essentially means keeping all them island in the U. customs territory I think that's difficult for Boris to do. it was a much Tabarrok mon managing director for the Eurasia Group in

"Roundup is one of the world's most ubiquitous weed. Killers Monsanto has been selling it since nineteen seventy four. Now however, in a precedent setting case, a San Francisco, jury has ruled it round up gave Duane Lee Johnson terminal cancer, mister Johnson is a former school groundskeeper. He has no Hodgkin's lymphoma and on Friday the jury ordered Monsanto to pay Mr. Johnson. Two hundred eighty nine million dollars in damages Brentwood is ner is mister Johnson's lawyer. We reached him in Los Angeles Mr. Wizner start off. If you would by telling us how your client Wayne Lee Johnson is doing. You know his most recent scan is actually not very promising. It shown that his cancer which had been abated for a few months is actually spreading pretty aggressively. So physically, he's not doing well, but I think emotionally he's doing pretty darn well, he's. Really proud of what we've done, what his cases accomplish. I don't think he's really grappled with the reality of, you know, just how big of a deal this cases and how much change he's making. And I think he's looking forward to, you know, hopefully getting enough money. So his wife doesn't have to work two jobs at fourteen hours a day and can spend, you know, whatever time he has remaining with his wife and his two children. What does the verdict mean to. I think it means a lot. It's sort of vindication that there is an explanation for his horrified cancer. You know, not knowing what caused your cancer can be very, very upsetting and very disturbing. But he now knows he now has vindication from, you know, a unanimous jury that in fact it was the roundup, and although it doesn't change the fact that his cancer is going to probably win. It does give him some comfort knowing that you know, he found the source, he did something good with it and you know, his family will be taken care of exposure to round up. He used it for a prior to him getting diagnosed with cancer. It was about two years. He was using it on the school ground where during the summer months, he would spray it almost every day and you'd be spraying about one hundred fifty gallons every morning. And so he was sprang a lot of it, and it was, you know, a lot of it was his exposure came from drift coming, just coming onto a skin while he was using. It, but also a lot of exposure came from a few incidents where the machine broke and it spilled in in it covered his entire body and soaked to skin for quite a period of quite a long period of time drenched a couple of times in this. That's right one time he was what he did. He didn't use a typical like backpacks Breyer. He was using basically a pressure washer that was attached to a truck, and he'd have to lug the hose around as he was spraying. It was spraying at a very large volume. And once one time it actually broke off the machine and started gushing out and he actually had to go and physically stop the gushing because he was worried that this chemical would be spread around the school ground. He didn't want kids to be exposed to it. So he, he actually put his body in front of it to stop it. It was able to Trump the machine. Then he was actually able to dig a trench to capture all the to state so wouldn't get to where the children were and and you know, he got a lot of exposure from that sense at the time. When he was doing this work and occasionally being drenched by a roundup of the potential dangers of this chemical, he didn't really have a sense of the cancer risk. I mean, he did take precautions. He did wear a suit that was supposed to limit his exposure. He wore gloves. But you know, he also said he was told by the distributor of the product that the stuff was safe. In fact, he what he testified to was that it was safe enough to drink. That's what he was told. And that's what he was led to believe..
