"Am joined today on special soft power program by mongols foreign editor megan gibson monocle culture editor kiara ramallah and monocle twenty four culture correspondent and eurovision desk chief. Fernando augusto up. We have a lot to cover in analyzing who made l. top ten this year and who didn't but we should talk about first of all meghan. What an unusual year for calibrating soft power. This was because of course it was like every country on earth given the same test it was like he is a pandemic deal revert. And see what it says about you. As a nation did it make a difference on how countries will seen by the rest of the world and soft power terms. It absolutely did like you said every country was dealing pretty much the same set of problems but just as internally the pandemic kind of shed light on where countries weren't up to snuff and where there's certain systems were lacking or the social welfare net was not working so too did a show which countries were really relying on kind of coasting approach to diplomacy and soft power. Every country had to turn inward in some respect. You had to face an economy. Crunch you had to face a healthcare crisis but a lot of countries still managed to think about diplomacy and what. They're projecting abroad and to other countries and global cooperation. And that is something. I think that kind of threw up some surprises when we actually looked at the year in terms of soft power some countries that have never made our list before immediately caught our eye. Well let's talk about that. We'll come back a bit later to how different countries responded to the covid nineteen crisis. But let's look first of all at our top ten and meghan all ask you again. You were talking about surprise entries in the top ten. Who is there. The see that hasn't been before i think the first one. I'm going to go to taiwan. And i should say we've done top ten this year. Usually we do top twenty five. We quickly realized that there weren't twenty five countries. That actually made that good impression on the world. I would say this year. A peace prize in the nineteen forties. Exactly we cut it down to ten and picked the ten countries that did something notable on the world stage and taiwan absolutely one of them from their stellar leadership in actually handling the virus. Which i mean has seen the country. Even today has had quite a minimal effect. On at the helm of its citizens numbers have been tiny and given their proximity to china. Remarkable for that. That's just been something that they've really been able to step up and show that they've had good leadership and for such a tiny country and a country that has been long grappling with a very antagonistic neighbor. That's been really impressive. And i think we've also could look at another country that has made our list consistently but also small and has done really well with the pandemic and that's new zealand new zealand again a beneficiary of its leadership and of its leader. Another factor we will come back to later in the show. I wanted to bring you in now. Kiara refu- look at the top ten. Were there any entries in there that left out at you. It's difficult for me to look at this without my cultural hat on. Because i do think that cultural exports make up so much of a country soft power their own way. You know if you do have a tv hit. That really can change. The international perspective of people have on your country in the issue. We have profile of borgen. The danish show which kind of guess kicked off almost a huge facination with scanning wa. I'm happy that south korea is in the fair number and i were discussing. Grammy results on are getting their first ever kind of major grammy nomination. I mean that is huge because the grammys are essentially a us kind of awards ceremony. Yes of course it has one global subcategory but it's largely. Us fakest for a korean bond to be nominated as part of that really means that they have become not only a korean band moore global bond and that radius testament to the power of capes. I think south korea has really well deserved second-place cultural reasons but also for all the other reasons dr megan was discussing. It's very interesting. Also you you know you mentioned new zealand as well and perhaps it's a very niche reason to be very well known abroad but i do think that new zealand has got an increasing amount of really interesting. Musical acts that are genuinely world class. I'm talking the likes of zuma. Alice harding benet talking. Broods mullen williams all quite indie acts but in the the community which is very dedicated. Genuinely these are kind of agenda setting also around the world. So i think it's really interesting. That a tiny nation can produce a really interesting side of the musical experimentation side of things obviously around this table. Four nations are represented all nations with instantly recognizable and widely understood national brands. And that's my nation of australia. Kiara of italy fernando's of brazil megan's of canada which i notice is the only one in the top ten. This whole thing is just the most shameless stitch-up so fernando to bring you in brazil a country with a powerful national brand and yet you are not in the top ten this year. Do you feel especially put out by that is. Is there a case you would like to make well. No no no not not in two thousand twenty eight gave you the big buildings builder. People would be surprised by me. Because i always a believer brazilian. I'm very proud of being resilient. And i am still an and we do have an amazing opportunity to be one of the best countries in soft power so perhaps in a few years will be there the top of the list but honestly i mean this year has been terrible for brazil president. He's an isolationist. he's not handling very well. The situation in the rain forest which matters a lot for the outside world. Perhaps those of us who enjoy breathing so exactly. But i mean it. It is an issue in brazil. but i notice. We've all my friends when they say. Oh how during forest the amazon. Your president doesn't care. And of course his declaration sometimes every day he said something quite offensive to specific groups. And it's funny. I was trying to say i mean. What is brazil doing. well now we. We are student load of great things but even at football you have. Our biggest star neymar liked by some. But he's but even in brazil. Laura people don't like neymar like perhaps some aspects of his personality. So then i think even football. We're not so well liked turfing. We need to improve. I am an optimistic. I think things will change but two thousand twenty is yeah. I agree it. It's not the year of brazil. And i do think this year has been a blip for a lot of countries and as i was saying you know cultural experts from italy. Obviously still very strong italian food still eating around the world unloved around the world especially on this table but this year it was all about the countries that had cut through and what the cut through was what the stories that were resonating around. The world like fernandez. The amazon is what people were thinking about. When they thought about brazil they were not thinking of amazing beaches. Or you know wonderful culture and things like that it was the bad headlines that were really being projected around the world just finally in this first part of the show. I am going to rise heroically above complaining too much about the struggles exclusion in favor of new zealand. And just let these self evident absurdity of that speak for itself but meghan there couple of other countries which again have shoes soft power in princeton fact arguably the countries with the to hugest soft power imprint i e the united kingdom and the united states neither of the mike it and is that just about covid nineteen and all the people who happened to be leading them at the moment. It is definitely down to leadership. Soft power is usually something that is built up over years and decades so usually it can survive a bad year it can survive a wrong thinking government but in the case of the uk and definitely the us. It's not that. Diplomacy was neglected in the last few years. I mean we've seen a lot of policies that have been actually hostile to global cooperation. And i think a lot of people's perceptions of those countries have really shifted especially when it comes to the us under donald trump.

Which can be deployed to win friends and influence people that's opposed to destroying enemies and terrifying rivals. Soft power is something that monocle takes seriously. Regular readers of the magazine will be familiar with our annual soft power survey which ranks the countries which have wielded this soft power most wisely the soft power survey in the current issue of monocle magazine is a little different from the usual reflecting the fact that everything about two thousand and twenty has been more than a little different from the usual. This has been a year in which every country on earth was presented with the same challenge in this special episode.

Darina Allens food philosophy
"We start today spoke with Irish chef author and broadcaster Darin Allen who has for over three decades being tempting curious food folk would be shifts from around the world to East Cork. That's where she runs the world famous. Bali mellow cookery school. After twenty or so cookbooks and countless Seles. TV shows Allen has become the face and the voice of a coronary revolution in Ireland. And now she has released yet another cookbook call to one. report feeds or Marcus. Joyce finished meant during Allen to talk about the book but before that they discussed dreariness food philosophy and into why rice cooking and farming practices. Really do matter. Not Enough has changed in that direction because really the message not even subliminal message nowadays is is that the skills that are really important are the academic skills and that the practical skills are of much less importance and this is a big mistake. My goodness sweep Latin now. Two generations at least out of our houses and our schools without equipping them with the basic life skills to feed themselves properly or feeding right into the hands of the multinational food companies. We've handed over complete control over the most important thing in our lives really are food to the supermarkets and it's not their responsibility. Our health is not their responsibility so basically I feel really failing in our duty of care to our children and the next generation by not equipping helping them with the basic practical skills to make a little meal for themselves own. I could really do was actually scrambled eggs or whatever you know With a basic skill. I've had a really interesting life. I now have what I absolutely love. It's actually a privilege to be able to pass on cooking. King skills to the next generation could be teaching algebra geometry or something and of course it's hugely important but you can't flip and Matt's Book and the Look on somebody's face when you teach them how to make a loaf of bread or a super it actually touches their lives at something they're going to use every day so I feel fortunate that I've found something that I totally love doing and feel like jumping out of bed still every day at seventy one years of age. Don't jump on quite desert fossil. Awesome US two years ago but still if we flash forward I mean people wouldn't have to look far to see the success. All of the amazing graduates have come through the school. All of the things that you've you've taught them not to mention as you said your TV shows your books sold in the hundreds of thousands of copies. But I had the good fortune two years ago. I believe to come to Bali demanded to a story for Monocle magazine. And you told me something curious. I'd like to ask you about the first recipe. Teach students is a recipe for soil. And in your clothes. It's actually the recipe. I give them as how to make compost scams where you're very very close. So basically the school operates a whole year round but we do three-month dream on certificate courses on the first day. The first one the first thing I do is I introduce them to the gardeners in the far manager. And maybe I'll have a bunch of carrots or something and I say to them. Look at these lovely carrots. It took I lean three months to grow these carrots three months and don't you dare boilers them. And you get them into the kitchen and then we go out into the fruit garden and Eileen will have a wheelbarrow full of soil there. Actually its humus in fact and they stand around me and a big semicircle in a wondering doing what's coming down the line the feeling a little awkward and I just run my hands to the soil and I say to them remember. This is where it all starts in the good earth in the soil and and looking at me and thinking. Oh my God do myself say. They've visited brochure. thinking some aged hippie on a mission or something but I have to shock them out of thinking that food is just something that comes wrapped in plastic offer supermarket shelf. I need them to think about how it's produced where it comes. I think about the feed for the animals. The breed the the variety such a such a toll. The better if I can find futile worms in this wheelbarrow full of soil. But then it's even more interesting for me. I think because wash is in that wheelbarrow has come from the compost heap and it's now at the final stages of compost which is called Humus when life comes back into it and actually has been made from the scraps from the morning's cooking that have gone onto the compost. It's broken down and in life has come back into it and that is what we feed the soil with. I mean if I come back another time I want to be a soil scientist. 'cause the so much going on because our health everything comes in the soil bill but then one of the many wonderful quote some lady eve how far and say to them remember the health of the soil. The health of the plant health at the animal and the health of the human are all one and indivisible so we're totally dependent on that four or five inches of soil around the world for our very existence. Farmers are really worried about the diminishing fragility of the soil. Because we've racked the soil by very intensive monoculture over the years and we can't go on with businesses usual. We simply have to go back and I mean as a farmer I feel a strong responsibility that whatever I grow you and we have we sell a little of our excess produce Mardell farm shop on the farm farmers markets and. I just feel strong responsibility that I can look somebody straight in the. I know that that food is going to nourish them rather than make them ill. which is what's happening with lots of food nowadays and during the you've been proved right over time I mean these are opinions slowly working their way into the mass media their opinions that people are slowly beginning to agree with? You have held this idea for a long time. How hard is it meant to convince people to even get to this point into the debate where people countenanced the health of the soil? There's a lot of chat about the fertility of the soil. Now because I think people really beginning and not just beginning but realized the connection connection between fertile soil and good health also. There's been enormous amount of work done on the link between the health of our gut bio and both are mental and physical health. And that's when you think of it. It's like so obvious at the school where very lucky we have a little dairy herds so we also have role milk for people if they want to drinker but we notice this is sort of anecdotal. Because I've watched this over thirty years the difference in people's energy level and they're scared and so on when they're with us for three months but now this is all scientifically proven and also the other interesting thing that's happening actually is for the last five six seven courses this is. We've had at least one doctor. Sometimes to an on this course of the moment we have three doctors on the twelve week certificate cooking course these doctors who come they all come for the same reason they tell me that basically they feel because medical training. There's no training in nutrition even still although a lot of the young doctors. There's a now demanding that they're given the proper information so they can answer their patients queries properly and so many of the patients presenting hunting with conditions. That can be at least hot. An often cured by a change of Diet for one of the problems is. Where'd you get this nutrient dense food? I mean a lot. The people don't have time to buy directly from farmers but there are other ways of excel tarnish of routes to market retell routes to market developing over here. You have formed drop and we we have neighbor food and onto you can buy on nine. And then the farmers get eighty percent of the price which is fantastic has so many farmers not being paid enough any longer to produce nourishing wholesome food which is a real problem. And that's as opposed to us was between twenty five and thirty percent of the retail price. If it's going through a supermarket so that's important portent and also I'm encouraging people to try to grow something themselves again and as you mentioned you're concerned about the quality of food that people have access has to and maybe also sometimes I guess the quality of food that people were reached for when they could reach for something else which are believed to be some of the inspiration behind rather fetching new book work in front of me number. Nineteen number nine teams needs another during having good but I I think this one says one feeds all one hundred it new recipes. Tell us about the inspiration for after you've done. Eighteen books hackles up. The ALITA writes her. Another one. Why it took me to write this book? Actually because it's been bubbling away in my subconscious for years. Because we've been I suppose is about five or six years. Now we've been doing a course called one wonders it's a bit of a cheesy name for recourse but it's almost full and of course one can see year after year that everybody's becoming more and more frenetically busy and sort of for an fact have dedicated this book to all the heroic young couples who are trying to keep all the balls in the air and that's for many people. The reality now is so dashing home from work in the UK. Okay here in Ireland to terrible traffic off the time dashing into the supermarkets picking up the kids in the crash trying to get a few ingredients and then coming home exhausted and and really wanting to be able to cook a big part of something or make something that you know will nourish the family and we'll be delicious and wholesome and good and comforting after that long day and it's just time it's almost impossible to keep all the balls in the air and so. I hope that this book will provide a little bit of the solution for so many of the busy people to the title says Israeli. Because it's one part feeds also one pass one low sinton baking tray or one trae Bake I. I hate that word trade bait but there's so many good things loved it desserts. You can do it as well so this book was written for that reason and it's getting a fantastic response. Actually I think it's really touching a nerve with a lot of people in so many people say that's exactly what I wanted. It's exactly what I've been waiting for so I. I'm quite proud of it in many ways because I kept putting the recipes and saying I think left without an they'd love that they'd love letter left out and actually does apart from of course fishing means on there's also lots of vegetarian -tarian dishes and lots of accidentally Vegan things to and during last question for you but number nineteen thirty six years of running the cookery school. What was the one talk tip that you've learned over that time? It can be a technique for boiling an egg could be owning a mandolin. Was the one bit of advice I can ask you. That you think is made life a little bit easier in otherwise hectic schedule. Oh my goodness I think. Sit Down after your days work. Sit Down and enjoy. Enjoy something at the kitchen table. Whether it's just a simple boiled egg little scrambled eggs or nomination it loss of wine but sit down and enjoy us and let the cares on the worries of the days.

"The current issue of monocle magazine contains L ninth annual soft power survey a ranking of nations, according to the mighty of the non military arsenals soft power is a new idea in the phrase was only coined as recently as the late nineteen eighty s by the American political scientists chose of NY. But it's also an idea as old as nation states which have always sought to impress and persuade other nation states by draping their flags around their cultural. Treasures soft power is innocent weapon with which a country makes other countries. Like it rather than fear. It some countries have been historically good at wielding this weapon with the encouragement of their governments some countries have succeeded despite their governments still other countries are members in this field of the gang that couldn't shoot straight. And there are some who failed to appreciate how potentially familial. They are the soft power survey rewards, the competently, run and creatively. Inspired. What is the secret of getting those? Two tendencies to work together. This is the foreign desk. Can't be out short returns. These things have been around for centuries. He's things that are running in in the blood. These are things which are sort of your growing in the earth. So I don't think that you can say, yeah, let's go and set up a ministry of soft power and hope that it's going to pay dividends right away from my point of view, Italy, really needs to push Fullwood, and you generation of artists of cinematography says of musicians that can really make the international state. I mean, I love so much talion music. None of which is known across Europe. I don't think Brazilians will allow themselves to lose that feeling that friendliness if you ever been to Brazilian beach. I mean, you know, what I'm talking about lots of governments and are looking and saying what are the cultural elements of our nation that define our nation that are exportable and that is resonating with people around the world. And I think that is just smart, it's smart governance. And it's. It's quite an easy way. If they make it work right to have the rest of the world think fondly of your country. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Mullah. We start with this used monocle soft power survey. It's on a newsstand near you now. And I'm joined first of all by Monaco's editor in chief Tyler Tyler we will start with the winner. And the winner is the winner is France. What are the French doing? Right. This year. The French are doing many things, right? And in many people are doing things not so well, so everything changes year-by-year weather. We're doing our quality of life surveys. You know, or if we are doing the soft power ranking we look at various aspects was way too a little bit differently Francis. Always been a strong contender. We liked the fact that they bounced back from a string of terrorism attacks France receives its position as the world's most visited tourism destination. I'm not sure if you're a fan, I like Christine, and the queens, but they've had a pretty good year in pop overall and not just in terms of names in charts. But also just the whole world of French music production that didn't pretty well on the cinema television stage. And then enter we looking at a variety of things that might happen on an annual or biannual level. You've got the power what happens around Kansas the film festival, but you've got the lion's. You've also got something important like mitt calm and also mitt them as well as whether you're trying to sell it format for television or a condo you need to be in. This other France as a global player, so there's there's really a broad span of things which the country's doing. Well. But if we take one more step back from that. I think we often forget how important this country is when also comes to just throwing open your your fridge door, and we're not talking about just a Cam on bare, but just the power of the French dairy brands, juice, manufacturing, whatever it is the country's doing a lot, right? Want to look more broadly at the soft power survey?.

"As well as colors. Leander stand fizzle. So humanism on display that tell us what's meant by that. I think that the focus around culture and social spaces in break areas, it's really coming from the user and centered around what the users of the the workspaces are asking for and what they feel they need. And this kind of focused on on behavioral and things that you see in the office is something that I think is really interesting new aspect of the of the market. I also think that it's something that is interesting research for the future. So it's putting a challenge on on the furniture companies and the office companies to really dig deep into behavioral and social studies, and as opposed to keep part of that would be the idea of the self-determined workspace then can you explain a little bit more about that? One of the key trends that is is being discussed here. At take is something that they call work on the go, where the the day dictate your work, as opposed to the work. They say thing your day. And I think this is a quite liberating. An interesting take on on what the future might hold for for the office space. Just anything that you're looking forward to over the next few hours there will can we expect to come up at the fab? I think one in thing that it's certainly interesting through through digging deeper into is the engagement of architects and designers coming here to through the architects fair traditionally a business thing, but increasingly has become a place for architects and designers to study what is what is really to come when the workplace environment changing so fast.

Welcome to the program Venetia now I up the Dutch flower industry. It's in full bloom. Yes, it is. Well, it's also facing some troubles and the Dutch flower industry is dominance in the world. They have something like forty percent of the market, which is the biggest country share of any country, and but they're facing threats from digitalization and all of the flower industry in the Netherlands focuses on this flower market and als MICH just outside about Saddam, and it is an amazing place when you visit there at six in the morning or ready it, sir, as hive of activity. All these little electric carts pulling these boxes of chips and roses around this enormous site, which is I think something like twice the size of the Vatican. Looking at it now and it's a, it's easy to find in the new edition of the magazine. In fact, it's the glossy section Alvin Albany show. So they do me now Netherlands survey, but there are some there are some images here of the, oh, what would you call it? The flour factory. I suppose it looks like a flower factory.

That's all coming up next week on the globalist. Time. Now, though, for a look at today's papers on joined by the urban est cat Hanna who's got her pick of all stories, city relations from today's newspapers in Europe, Humber stars and cast welcome to the program as ever with the telegraph the Daily Telegraph in the UK page. One of its business section is an Amazon bringing thousand tech haub's to a variety of a so-called British tech hubs. What are these hubs? So this is actually looking at some regional hub. So we'll see we tend to focus on, you know, London as a center for a lot of this kind of high skills, you know, tech activity, but actually will. This piece is focusing on some the regional hub. Seven particular mentioned a Manchester Cambridge, Edinburgh, and actually really looking particularly more of the high skills ready that took around the universities. So Cambridge, Amazon in particularly looking at things like piloting drones for delivery, you know? So that's some. His father investment initiatives that already that some of this is new. This is ARIN in d. at these jobs and focusing on the types of things as are are, are already specialisms in in these areas. It's it's interesting, isn't it to hear about the the evolution of these regional hubs as being specialists in things like drone delivery? For example, it's it's not something that's it seems to be an emerging phenomenon, mature agree. Yeah, absolutely. And I think what's worth during out. They actually follow up in telegraph that's a comment piece, but one of the executives Amazon and actually saying, what does this also tell us about Silicon Valley? Because obviously traditionally particularly Amazon for a lot of tech companies in general. It seen as we home of innovation and you'll specialists, and in particular is Silicon Valley, maybe Seattle, but actually that's where the really exciting sexy stuff is happening and well, this is saying is, you know, yes, we're still doing that, but actually there are some particular. Talents in particular skills. A lot of it, for example, is around qualifications in AI computer science, we're actually Europe is performing really well. So how these tech companies on his a cynic though mice argue whenever you hear that I'm as in an answering clutch jobs and regional centers around the UK. It's an effort to deflect from, you know there where they pay their tax similar to two other tech companies are often accused of being at tax dodgers or tax efficient. And this is a similar effort that could be one interpretation of, and I think I would actually read this relatively positive story. I think actually it's kind of vote of confidence the in particular, a higher education system of skills. Faith actually also on cities as well. Because really, this is about talent. This is you know where these people want to be working and actually it saying, you know, cities like Manchester Edinburgh, they can be those making really step happen in the future play that kind of role and crucially not just trained people. Up to ship them off to elsewhere to Silicon Valley. I'm -solutely there is something actually about keeping a lot of talent in the UK and avoiding the kind of brain drain, which we do sometimes see again, particularly if you look at things like people with PHD's in computer science, the numbers of the academic leaving, perhaps not unsurprisingly for very well paid techjobs of the often overseas or quite high who could blame them.

"Crack big auto for an ad. Yeah, magazine businesses, tough. Yeah, it's got to be tough, really tough now. Yeah, I would go in Shanna anybody out there. I would definitely go in and like. Edited or published co publish a magazine, still love it. And I'm like, no, it right in my heart. The idea, the idea was really, I mean, this twist of like interviewing interesting people about their first run, but also really running culture magazine, like looking at this intersection that we've already spoken about, and there is no magazine that exists like that cycling has if you magazines mimic that some of which still exist and some of which have gone away like peleton was that was kind of like in the vein, right? So magazine still exist, then even know. I don't know if it still around, but there isn't anything. Nobody has created anything like that for running. It's It's also. also run run than right bikes. And again, if you just think if you had this publication like on your coffee table that you're training for your first marathon or your your fiftieth like a publication that the feels like this person gets me. I have to say, like in light of like political shifts and stuff coming to the fore, like in the me too the past year that I definitely see now, like my idea for magazine was super limited. It was gonna be. You have to be focus. Can't be everything to everybody, but it was very much like a louche, lush, like older, bro, lavish premium experience for like rich was an idea. That's not me turns of like, who could I shovel this idea off onto it now. It wasn't like a super pluralistic thing, you know? But those are my references at the time like. Purple Magsi and alleviates and just kind of like these figures in fashion publishing an editorial level. I wanted to create that what I perceived to be that romance in that glamour that I also felt was running. Like if you hear about like liens on trading at a high altitude training camp and he's like in the sauna afterwards, raising in the cooling jets, like that's an experience that like you feel a Richard is trying to have as he's training for its Maryland. Yeah, I made sense to me. Nike was coming out there, premium collection design Japan, and you know, watching the getting more expensive and having featured, there's this all of these kind of things. And then you could also bring into cultural element to that. Obviously, it's something that monocle magazine is probably always cooking up because it's very much that was part of the inspiration and Tyler Brule I guess apparently is a big fan of runners running and always said he wants to like, do a running. I think he's learning getting literary flair. Yeah, or. And also like a little fashion and style to like being a little transgressive like shot Leo Wallace for the cover the first issue. And she was just kind of like, you know what? Let me introduce a running magazine and let me put the psych empirically beautiful black woman on the cover and wearing like a USATF sweatshirt in the middle. That doesn't use like proper fashion photographers. Sure to Hsun elite athletes. You know, again, another. Magazine existed. I I definitely it because my fashion trends, fashion friends are like, what are you doing elites are like, what are you doing? It was definitely oil in one every Gotcha. It's everyone everyone dug it. And I like to think that you know that early thing kind of like helped prima freight, some some images in some visual language out there that I think people have picked up on. Yeah, I think they have. And so so you make this decision not to go for with the magazine, you put it all in Instagram, which super coal. You know what you're doing without is is amazing..

"Novels in Daytona slowest in Toronto and the new edition of monocle magazine is out on new stunts today. All organized for change. You'll be glad to hear. So molest rustling than usual. But joining me in the studio is journalist and broadcaster. Juliette foster welcome back to the globalist Julia. Very good morning, Russell. And you'll be please. These things in in Princeton, physical format of. We're getting in key fingers slightly. First one was what was the enemy. Plus the, let's start with the time because of course this is a story which resonates everywhere on the front cover of the front page of the times Italy blames Brussels and big business for tragedy. And you were saying, just before we came back on air, the this is turning into a case of information walls around this bridge tragedy. Absolutely. And what makes it even more shocking is that the the, the operation to recover the bodies are indeed to actually find survivors. It does appear that the hope of finding anyone live in the rubble is it pretty slim? The even before the operations being concluded, the the the blame game is being played out already and is actually very, very sinister. The direction that it's taking was basically happens that you've got the prime minister just said become tea, and he is blaming big business tragedy. And in particular, the company offers starter which actually run the toll system on this bridges, this bridge and indeed all the bridges around Europe. And of course, the other led to this. This is author structure is owned by the Benetton family, and of course they very famous clothing manufacturers and Hayes claimed that older structures collecting this money from the tolls and it should have used this money to pump it into the maintenance of the bridges. He's also said that one of the reasons why the press were all the slow about reporting all of this because the Benetton family has stakes in the Italian media. Now, on the other hand, you've got Mr. Salvini who, although he's not, he's not the prime minister. He's, he's. Sometimes he has because he's from the league, which is the coalition partner of the five star movement and Hayes, blaming Brussels. And he's basically said, look, if it hadn't been Brussels imposing all these spending restrictions at cetera, then the maintenance work would have been done. Now if you go onto the edit version. Well, I picked this up in fat on my mobile. This is the independent. I'm basically what they said is that mississau- Vini is wrong to blame Brussels because natural fat. If you're going to point the finger of blame, you should points it at your coalition partner because they claim that the five star movement in the policy said, warnings of the collapse of the Morandi of the risk of the Morandi bridge, risking collapse most as they say, what was I said Valetta a fairytale of children's fantasy. So whatever you had the engineers saying that we've got to do some maintenance work miss. Otherwise, it's going to go though, saying, nonsense Nelson's nonsense. And as the paper here says, the independent five stall true to its crude populist instincts wanted to win. Political support from local residents who resented the disruption and change the works create is what the British call Nimby ISM, not in my backyard but elevated into a political philosophy enough. That's the case the nuts, very, very worrying that the very people who have pointing the finger of blame, but they themselves were actually culpable were courting populist opinion on this transport minister Nali who was saying that the people responsible would have to pay for this. He's five star minister, and he's basically said, the author straws is senior management should be forced to resign and pay a fine of one hundred and fifty million euros. And as I said, MRs, Salvini has been blaming Europe and basically claiming look, you put you impose restrictions on us in terms of the spending, but Walter, the independent, his said, his look, whenever you sign up the single European currency, the euro like it or not. There are certain rules that you have to stand by, but it doesn't involve how you spend your money on crucial infrastructure. If you think about it, they're quite a few members of the European single currency, and they do invest their money on the on infrastructure and really. Again, we don't know what causes, but they're all claims floating around the construction industry in Italy because the way that it structured Matthew involved with that may have had something to do with it..
