That is the party. Secretary-general and what's the overall tone at the congress. This time around pretty self. Congratulatory parties had a good year. They've handled the pandemic pretty well. Had just over fifteen hundred cases and fewer than fifty deaths and the economy actually grew by three percent but there's still a lot of disquiet and the party and indeed in the public disquiet in the party in the form of some kind of opposition. There's no organized opposition. Nobody's going to supplant the communist party anytime soon and ever since the nineteen eighties. When the country embarked on the transition from a century planned economy to market one the party has state its legitimacy on rising incomes on his ability to increase prosperity. And it's done that over. Four decades vietnam has transformed from one of the poorest countries in the world to middle income manufacturing powerhouse. But if you look beyond. Those headline figures are causes for concern. The economy has been growing at about seven percent. The last several years and the economy needs to reach that level of growth to keep the labor market. It's not clear that it can do so however at the same time as you have this depressed. Economic growth inequality is rising and social mobility is declining. okay that's about formal opposition parties but you mentioned disquiet among the public as well. What's happening. They're vietnamese can't express their discontent through politics. Because opposition parties are banned but informal criticism is growing. There are a lot of vietnamese. Social media users about sixty five million out of a total population of one hundred million according to our social british firm as level of education has improved in the country and more and more people have access to the internet. they've been exposed to values that are antithetical to the communist paradise that the regime is trying to build these values like democracy and human rights and they can express views on social media and so it's that disquiet than in the public that's causing the disquiet in the party. I mean how is the house. The party dealt with that space for criticism harshly. They have cracked down over the past five years. They've arrested two hundred eighty people for quote anti-state activities up from sixty eight in the previous five year period instructed the serum press to scrub phrases like civil society and human rights from their pages and in the months leading up to the national congress. This crackdown has intensified earlier. This month day sentenced three freelance journalists famous for criticizing the government to between eleven and fifteen years in prison. It's a lot easier to shoot off an angry tweet or facebook post than it is to organize in vietnam where protest is technically illegal but actually there have been a lot of protests in real life over the last several years so in two thousand eighteen for instance tens of thousands of vietnamese took to the streets. Because they're angry about a proposed law that they were worried would allow chinese companies to lease special economic zones for a ninety nine years as a lot of anti chinese sentiment in vietnam. Because there's a lot of concern that chinese infringing on their offering sovereignty and the protests so violent angry there were clashes between the police and protesters. The government eventually abandoned this law so a good pandemic response and the economic growth. That comes with that somewhat offset by this discontent. What else is on party leaders minds. Ironically trade is going to be a worry as well and i say -ironically because trade is a is a massive driver of economic growth. It is through trade. That vietnam has been able to transform itself into manufacturing powerhouse and yet at the same time it gives its export markets leverage over the government. So for instance in order to get the eu to agree to free trade deal last year. Vietnam had to agree to abolish forced labor and allow the creation of independent labor unions which was a massive concession but surely concerns such as that aren't limited to the you know means the party officials have to think very carefully about their relations with both china its biggest trade partner and the us biggest export market. The trump administration came down really hard on vietnam labeled it. A currency manipulator late last year and trump has described vietnam quote. Almost a single worst abuser of everybody for that reason. So the party will be very keen to rebuild the relationship with the biden administration. But at the same time i can't be seen to cozy up too closely to the us for fear of offending china. With whom it has an incredibly important relationship you know. Shares ideology shares along land border and they have an important trade relationship you know. China is largest source of materials and equipment for vietnam manufacturing industry so that it's a tricky balancing act required of party officials to get that relationship right so whoever emerges from the congress secretary general.

We're giving you a special report from inside on how it was built in record time and what. He will do now from evening. Standard in London. I'm David Malls land. And this is the leader KUNA virus more everybody and welcome to ten of PA with unfortunately joking Ospina Amazing. The United Kingdom is a country that creates heroes out of crises. Sometimes in the most unexpected ways this is where a youtube like Joe wicks can dress spiderman and inspire millions of children to keep fit even when the Conley the homes more side less rash which fitter and stronger and faster and stronger faced with real danger. We keep our sense of humor and protect what's valuable. Our families lives already chess. You know millions at eight PM for two days in a row the UK has thrown open. Its windows stood on. Its front porches. Leaned over its balconies and clapped. The applause was for the doctors. The nurses the emergency workers who form the front line of the UK's fight against Luna virus. Some of who have already given their lives to save others. This country is being invaded by an invisible enemy bringing a risk to life on a scale. We haven't seen generations. This is how we fight back with one of the most incredible feats medical and engineering construction ever undertaken on. These shows an enormous new hospital belt in nine days it is revived to spectacular and almost unbelievable feature of work ever since an example. If everyone was needed of how the impossible could be possible. This is the story of the nineteen this way hospitals in Florence Nightingale's times were When when you when you had challenging times few stalls you needed the nurse it needed to see all the patients Once Evening Standard John Lewis John done has been behind the scenes of the newest. We're up to four thousand. Patients will be careful in. What was the Excel Centre in East London? He says the building doesn't just take its name from the feigned. Lady of the Lampoon tweeted soldiers in the Crimean war. It's very design is inspired by the ideas she had for medical ward layouts on the front line more than one hundred sixty years ago the hospital she worked in where you had this huge awards Which matrons nurses which would patrol You know keeping an eye on all the patients having good lines of sites and the geography of the place has been the logistics of the place of been nailed down no doubt with the help of the military and trying to look at the numbers on the pictures action. It's your bets are off so far Matthew riddle is a photographer who last went to the XL. When it was used for the London Olympics in two thousand twelve when I was walking in as I've been here since the Olympics so now I haven't seen the last eight years ago when the Olympics was on and I was photographed from weightlifting and I. It was kickboxing and various other sports. But yet I mean that again. Under underlines how big the places that they can have all of those various Olympic sports. It's so big. So vast and I so impressive. How open honest and the attention to detail on each bed station. I have a map of where everything has to be in each station throughout for the full thousand beds so that if anybody is a member of staff to move to another station. I know exactly. Everything is down to the syringes. The cotton buds. Whatever it's everything's identical and I thought that attention today to really impressment the rows and rows of beds surrounded by medical equipment with space for ventilator staff move swiftly through the aisles brought in from other hospitals student Nastase doctors who had retired but have now returned to help colleagues facing overwhelming odds that the numbers are scary numbers. But if I tell you that to reward. Including all of our ancillaries ancillary staff who would just as important to us without all cleaners and our admin staff we open we need two hundred members of staff. That's the hospital's Chief Operating Officer Natalie Forrest. There are more than eighty wards that means more than sixteen thousand staff will be needed. The scale is enormous but so is the problem. I think having spoken to the conditions down there Sixty doctor Allen mcclen. He's the medical director that we're expecting intensive care units Across London It's come under severe pressure imminently. John Donne says doctors feel hit that four thousand capacity very soon this hospital. The nightingale went be taking When be taking patients interstitial sense in the people when people taken off the streets of patients there will be people who have been taken to hospital by cops push on ventilator and then the capacity of the traditional hospital is exceeded a nestle people have to be formed out to the nights ago the overspill and none of this existed just nine days ago with the help of the military and with NHTSA clinicians. We will make sure that we have the capacity that we need so that everyone can get the support they need. When Health Sangre Matt Hancock announced the plans was some skepticism? It could be completed so quickly. China had of course done something similar in seven days but that's a different country. Nevertheless contractors were called in to do their duty and owned by Prince Charles during his speech to open the hospital. Something he had to do. Virtually from Buck Hall in Scotland as he recovers from the infection on behalf of the nation I will say very big thank you to the planners the builders the armed forces the generous companies organizations which have donated equipment and services at all the support staff who have made this possible to convert one of the largest national conference centers into field hospital starting with five hundred beds and the with a potential. Full thousand is quite frankly incredible. Now it's over to the medical staff. Dr Alan McLennan is the nightingales medical director so they will come to US already on a ventilator transferred in here and we will take care of them until the There is finished on. We can put into a step down facility now. That is the model at the moment. I didn't take two hundred clinicians ten days to make sure to be gone. Pretty detailed motive for this disease so we can If when when the disease burden changes for London? We can relocate immortal because his facility is flexible. She can see but we'd have to do that in a note of money. This quiet long walk from the entrance to the actual ward so going down in effect like a shopping mall really because there's restaurants either side but closed obviously and there was all me and trades people and people being trained and I just star builders plasters join. Us technicians electrician's Matthew. It'll says with some work on the building still going on.

"Sale the National Conference Center in Bournemouth. There was an Democrat delegates streaming through these tools wearing their yellow Lan Yang. It's come through in corporates area and I could just see up ahead. Peter Walker Guardians Political correspondent pizza. Hello I'm alright. What's the mood been like here really really buoyant everyone you talk to you. They say this is you. You know my favorite lipscomb conference ever. They've they've gotten you leader. They've got these new. MP's like seemed to a new one every single week today's new policies. I think they're brexit policies election winner. They keep on predicting that if the polls says they are you there is an election they can get anything between fourteen and one hundred M which sounds yeah. That's what keeps saying that's their modeling is saying. I think hundred is very very very topic but you know even though that explaining policy as if they want to enter govern on their own in realistic to him reasonable chance so they could end up holding the balance of power and in much the same way I trump since conservative opposition very much as the brexit minded party they are very much remain party and this new pledge to revoke Article v Stop Brexit in the admittedly unlikely event they win. General election cements them in in voters mind you come last year. This is my very first conference. People who say it's different to other conferences and very much because Labor until we conference is a quite cool put in very serious lip spoiler third party. Have these strange strange kind of conditions. I do have Karaoke party had last night after famous lib-dem Glee Club but the all sing kind of statistical songs Ah Liberal Democrat. MP's people which is actually this evening very popular event and do you have to go. It's very apparent. Yes I do have to. We're we're going to have to go. It would be fair to say than the Liberal Democrats had a turbulent few years and twenty seventeen gene. They won just twelve seats across the country as a pro-european. Party brexit has presented them with an opportunity to more success in recent European and local elections combined with the arrival of new MP's. It's really reinvigorated and reshape. Philip downs say much the party conference gift shop kind of struggling to keep Deepak. This is a sea of yellow this at de Schelde therefore everything that's monks run a quantum should I okay positions through the every. MP You can get a Mug for them. I was I was talking to shop. It's very disappointed haven't had time to do mugs than NPR's yet. Apparently they're wasting LYTHAM central office to send the pictures over says no look. There's no service I'm Jay Switzerland. I think they sold out of Jersey mugs and they've been saying to you about the new. MP's when we joke with many of them on the mugs but what do you think people make all this weekend. Sanjay coming into party fittingly be Santa Birger are they are they pleased are concerned for the most part people live really really pleased because it's new empties and they lift off a centrist party and to be able to get MP's from both the left and the right is really really pleasing for them. Positively is everywhere. This conference eighth on the floor of the auditorium venture mean gives his maiden speech. This brings me to emergencies opposition. I know a bit about the opposition and it's in the meeting room where standing-room-only Feliciana Lisa verge of taking questions from delegates. It does feel like these new. MP's really boosting morale way just outside the exhibition fishing center and lots of good milling around here. What do you think about the new he's coming from Labour from the conservatives. I think it's really funny that some Jima Rats leader Conservative foty now. He's one of us but then again I mean he did run lead with the Conservative Party on a second referendum Renton platform which was bulls by did speak to some people who were more cautious about the party becoming a home philosophy. MP's is this your first time at this at this conference. Does the party failed different. Does it feel more exciting or show me yeah. There is a huge rati here rushing different people there's also the damage is people with all signs of different ideas. Sometimes the variety is hard to take in because because there are some quite free market-oriented people and they're the opposite like me guaranteed some of the new. MP's door joint sometimes the weekend or don't actually know enough about them historic records. You'll be welcome them into the Party and I'm worried but it may be the there was a lot of controversy about Philip me. WHO's record is questionable but I would be in a national crisis absolutely what people actually do meet findlay. He wasn't too recently a conservative. MP until he crossed the floor of the Commons enjoying the Liberal Democrats are the largest spoke to said there's been a lot of criticism of some of his views and his voting record particularly of his stunts on LGBT rights and an amendment he made to the Immigration Bill in two thousand fourteen so very interested to meet him and just find out how it's open going in the past couple of weeks conference. Hola Tory party conference was like stage-managed rally wasn't democracy in action here they're actually discussing and members on the floor and voting and and yes that can have challenges for for the management for the Party and things. That's well documented but you know what I'd rather have it like this. Then the way my former boss he did it and EV. Oh Oh the MP's of join the temps in recent weeks. I think yours was probably the most dramatic events is in to the party. Now you cross the floor in the Commons. Wall Lawrence Johnston was honest. Feverish Irish Irish are old and need watched. His majority disappear foyer is is he made that journey why did you did you choose to do it like that. I think when the whole prorogation business this started towards the end of August undeniably that accelerated my thinking the needed to be a you're just he's not doing this moment. This is not right yeah. It's been but thinking when I was watching got. I imagine you being quite nervous just seconds before you knew you were going to do it and then old the jazz and I wear unfortunate to wear I watch and I sat down next to Chase Winston about full foam and this is so after I sat down my my started to vibrate and I thought that was flashing. I mean I hadn't ever seen do this before I don't really understand my entirety and and I looked at it and it was telling me that my pulse rate was running at more than one hundred twenty and I wasn't moving which obviously is a doctor okay so I was deep breathing reading for a bit chart to manage my post seriously yes. It was not easy. It has been a lot of coverage of your voting record cord in the past and one day's news coverage. They've been coverage of of misrepresentation of my views. There are issues when you've been other party. You've been whipped vote for things. Do you think that immigrants should be tested for HIV or Hepatitis B. The country remind viewers was better that people coming into this country we knew the status so that they can be treated and they'll say that we could prevent further infection spreading and and that's not how it's being portrayed in Corson's drew upon my medical experience when you've been confronted the reality of a sub Saharan African patient presenting with an AIDS defining illness in general practice this this person not knowing that they were HIV positive advance so therefore they've been leading a life like anyone else without any knowledge if things. I didn't know your listenership understand what probing probing amendments are. Probing amendments are are not to be pushed to vote to. This wasn't about legislation. This was about trying to provoke debate but above all the motivation Asian was protecting patients protecting public health and I hope in Tyne enough people understand the head of the Liberal Democrats. LGBT group resigned when you join the party. How did you feel about and are you having conversations with. LGBT members within within. Ah Yes I'm having conversations and I had one. This morning. Agreed with people going to have another one this afternoon. Throughout all of this. I've tried to remain calm despite a genuine upset personally at being described in this way not least because I wouldn't want my patience to think this of me and you describe the last couple weeks has.
