My name's say the Mass and on the local SNP Kansas 29 year old SNP candidates, Sarah Massine has been pounding the pavement in Edinburgh, knocking on doors and asking for support.

Party down: Vietnams Communist leaders meet

"Once every five years with much pomp and pageantry the bombs communist leadership convenes in a national party congress thirteenth. One again in the capital hanoi. This week the expectation is that there will be a raft of stamp policies and new party leaders john despite the country's relatively low kobe numbers and positive economic performance. The party's position outside. The national conference center is weaker than it seems at the national party congress. They discuss issues confronting vietnam. They set policy and they elect the central committee. Politburo and the four top jobs. Charlie mccann is our southeast asia correspondent among them the most powerful job in the country. 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. There won't be much time for celebrating. He's gonna have a lengthy to do list.

Scotland's leader vows to push for second independence vote

"Party has today set out how it plans to secure a new referendum on Scottish independence from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, or SMP, says it will try to hold a referendum if it went the majority in this year's elections to the Scottish parliament. The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has made clear his opposition to another vote. The last referendum was in 2014 when 55% voted no to independence. Paul Hutchins, political editor of Scotland's Daily Record newspaper, will the SNP leader Nicholas Sturgeon be able to secure that second referendum. If you look at what they are plan ears, it is to get a joint agreement with the U. K government on a referendum on scorching depends, which is what happened back in 2000 and 14. But this time around Tory government in London has decided that it will not grant what's known as the section 30 order, which is effectively a joint agreement, so that's put the S and P in a difficult position, so they come up with a plan B, which is to organize their own referendum at the Scottish parliament. The big issue. There is whether or not that is legal. And while there's no doubt that they will probably go down that road is going to end up in the courts, so the question of whether there will be a referendum is probably will be decided by judges. Would unionist parties in Scotland go along with the referendum that hadn't been sanctioned by Westminster? Well, that is the key issue here. I think there's a big distinction to be drawn between whether Scotch Parliament can legally organize a referendum on the legitimacy of such a process. So even if the Scottish Parliament did push ahead with our and judges To say that it was legal. I think that be question Marks Reese because first is this court's conservatives who are pro union. They've already said they would boy court such a referendum on so you could be left for the situation where you have a referendum, but one side is just not taking part. And then you end up with the result could be C 18 90% fever of independence on internationally just looks quite amateurish. So I think that ultimately what you need is a process that is agreed by both sides on as we speak to snow and agreement on that looks quite far off. In the last independence referendum you mentioned there was a pretty large margin 10% in favor of Scott, the remaining part of the United Kingdom has that shifted dramatically in the last six years. There's no doubt that in the last couple of years their husband a shift in favor of independence. I think that around the last 20 opinion polls on independence surely lead for independence. So I said quite dramatic turnaround. From 2014, and I think there's a few reasons for that. One is Brexit as you well know, People school rejected Brexit when there was a referendum on that subject. There's also no doubt that the conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, is hugely unpopular. In Scotland, and I think that is partly responsible for the shift in public opinion. There's also a perception that Nicolas Sturgeon has handled the pandemic better and Boris Johnson has. I think it's a combination of a wussy factors as resulted in the increase in independence with the last couple years. And yet, I suppose in the back of people's minds is is the worry that actually, if membership of the European Union was driving things, there's no guarantee is there a tool that Scotland could quickly rejoined the U. Well, Brexit is the degree imponderable off this to beat. On the one hand, there's no doubt that is driving increased support for independence, but it does re some issues for the pro independence state. After was a referendum there's MP would liken depends got to rejoin the U. So you have the issue of? Well, how long would that teak and then even if an independent school and did join the European Union? What would that mean for things like Borders on immigration and cite the United Kingdom of what would it mean in terms of trade between Scotland and the rest of the Yuki? So I think that you would see a very different referendum. If we lose to tea, please, with a different set of questions raised. That was poor Hussian of Scotland's Daily record newspaper.

"Here's Manus Cranny. Martin Malone is an Alfa Book chief economic advisor. Some people are saying Martin that a Scottish referendum and departure by Scotland could be worse than Brexit. And cause you can't ask us to seriously implode. How do you assess the Scottish referendum risk? Not at all, because that's a decision that can only be met by central government in London, and they're not going to allow another referendum to take place in Scotland. The most important thing about the election has got funded. How many votes or have any seats will come through? For the S and P, who have basically controlled Scotland and had a majority. The lynchers polling is that they're only going to get 42% of the vote on around 59 MPs back to the Scottish Parliament. That is six short of a majority. But the shock may be that the Scottish National Party actually comes up short on. There's two reasons for this one is actually the vaccine rollout at two are the fiscal largess on three the former SNP head Alex Salmon deck. She has a new party and could actually still votes from the S and P s. So I think it's quite a complex vote. The shock may be that the SNP failed to get a majority here.

Florida: The swingiest swing state in the U.S. election

"I want to talk a bit about how we got here and why at least since the the famous near Tie of two thousand does just seem to be Florida or at least partially about Florida. Michael ask, you first win and why did floor to become the key battleground? Republican hasn't won the White House without Florida forever. So that's part of the reason that it's become. So you know everybody desperately wants it and it just seems to be the self-balancing State where it's about twenty percent immigrants. But you know the last the last fifty, million votes that have been cast for presidential candidates in. Florida. Republicans. Democrats, are separated by about twenty thousand and we've had just about every election. Every statewide election seems to come down to one percent and just seems like every time another white person. Republican moves down here from the Midwest another democratic leaning Immigrants May move into central Florida from the Global South and so it's a really seems to be self-balancing. Beyond those demographics that Monolithic is it a case of elderly white pensioners voting for Republicans, and more recent arrivals from elsewhere trading Democrat or is there some kind of overlap between spillage among those groups? As you can probably imagine it's a little bit more complex in that I think that there's didn't kind of increasing awareness for both Democrats and Republicans that some of the key demographics here you know the American immigrants but you know you have the first generation, the second generation you have the newer arrivals you have the. You have the Cubans you have the Puerto Ricans have the Haitians. There's such a mix of people and cultures and experiences, and when you add to that kind of the New Yorkers that are coming to Florida to retire, and you have all these different politics and ideologies of mixed together I think you really get. Such a representation of both the Conservatives and the liberals in both the US. But also in Latin America and I think that when you look at South Florida, you see a lot of those kind of play. You see you know from Columbia, you see the Conservatives from Columbia and you see the progressives from Columbia. So you have such a makes of. Of just these ideologies that really comes to shine like Michael said in the way that people vote. Michael is the a geographic split within Florida as well because it's the general tendency in the United States and elsewhere that cities tend to be more liberal more vaguely left-wing rural parts of a given state or given country tend to be more conservative. Is that clear cut in that respect in Florida? Well, again I think. Could certainly right that it's always a little more complicated but that's generally true I think you know you saw in two thousand sixteen that Hillary Clinton did even better than expected in a lot of the urban areas She Barack Obama won Florida and Hillary Clinton. Did even better in some of the particularly in south Florida in Miami and Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach and some of the more urbanized area. But Donald Trump there was an absolute revolution of essentially white people in the exurbs coming out and voting for trump in the rural and sort of farther away from the cities you don't want to over stereotype. But it certainly true that the Republican coalition has you know the heart of it is older white people who are very reliable voters and the Democratic Coalition relies on younger urban lots of immigrants, lots of minorities who in the past have not been turned out has not been as High Bianca. Those factors taken into consideration that I guess the Republican Party's and democratic parties in Florida will have an amount obviously in common with the National Party and parties elsewhere is there still a distinctive political culture within Florida like basically what I'm asking are Florida Republicans different from other Republicans, into Florida Democrats different from other States Democrats. I think when it gets down to it when you're thinking of. Our Florida Latinos for example, are they always kind of leaning Democrat or you know Florida South Florida Latinos are they always leaning Republican as people kind of think a lot of the time because of the cuban-american population I think that a lot of that is is changing. So at whether whether or not, you're going to see more cuban-americans still voting. Republican. In the way that they usually do a lot of that is kind of breaking and and being undone because of the younger generation, you know really having more of an experience in the. US and seeing the way that their families grew up in thinking about healthcare and climate change as more of priorities to them. So you know I would say that the main difference if there was one is here you can see a lot of distinctive kind of you see mixed political ideologies in families. So I've met even candidates who are you know Democrats were running now for public office in Florida and their families are different completely different ideology from them. So I think that that's what's interesting right and what makes Florida you know such. Unique and fascinating state is that it's changing all the time and it's changing not just because of the of the new kind of waves of immigrants that are coming in but also the new generations that are really having a different kind of awareness than the one their parents did. We'll talk more in the second half of the program about how Florida may have changed in the last four years and what it might be like in this election. But Michael just before we do that I don't like to tempt fate too much by talking about what happened in two thousand when basically an entire parallel history of the twentieth century got chalked off by a margin of a few hundred votes in Florida but. Still. Talk about that election much in Florida and Walton immense sliding doors moment that was not just for the United States. But as it turned out for the entire world, you know I think that's a great way. Great way of putting it because it certainly was I mean you know you wouldn't have an Iraq war if it wasn't for five hundred, thirty, seven votes the other way. And I think it's just a great example of. Of. You know the way these these elections and Florida are always one on the margins. Sort of every community matters again at the margins these things make a huge difference. I think. You know Republicans have been much better organized since two thousand and you saw in two thousand with that Brooks brothers riot But but everyone knows it's going to be close and and that really is a place where every vote counts.

So I've met even candidates who are you know? Democrats were running now for public office in Florida and their families are different completely different ideology from them. So i. think that that's what's interesting. Right and what makes Florida you know such. Unique and fascinating state is that it's changing all the time and it's changing not just because of the of the new kind of waves of immigrants that are coming in. But also the new generations that are really having a different kind of awareness than the one their parents did. We'll talk more in the second half of the program about how Florida may have changed in the last four years and what it might be like in this election. But Michael just before we do that I, don't like to tempt fate too much by talking about what happened in two thousand when basically an entire parallel history of the twentieth century got chopped off by a margin of a few hundred votes in Florida but. People still talk about that election much in Florida and Walton immense sliding doors moment that was not just for the United States but as it turned out for the entire world, you know, I think that's a great way. Great way of putting it because it certainly was i. mean you know you wouldn't have an Iraq war if it wasn't for five hundred, thirty, seven votes the other way. And I think it's just a great example of. Of you know the way, these these elections and Florida are always one on the margins. Sort of every community matters again at the margins, these things make a huge difference I think. You know Republicans have been much better organized since two thousand and you saw in two thousand with that Brooks brothers riot But but everyone knows it's going to be close and and that really is a place where every vote counts.

Highlights from the Democratic National Convention

"Virtual National Party convention is in the books, but it wasn't just the lack of balloon drops or cheering delegates that made this convention so different from the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia four years ago. In 2016, the wounds of a contentious primary were still on display this week. On the final night of the convention, The major 2020 Democratic primary candidates were featured in a primetime zoom like talk show format. Are, they gushed over Biden's decency and sense of purpose. I think the day I saw Joe, the clearest was on the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. Everyone, of course, was enormously honored to have the vice president here. But at some point in that speech, he shifted to the parents who had lost a child. To the man who had lost life. To someone who had experience loss. Very personally, and he spoke to each of the families. From the heart. The week also featured a number of high profile Republicans who vouched for Biden's competency and centrism. Their job was to assure the white suburban moderates who have soured on Trump. That Biden is a safe choice. I'm sure they're Republicans and independents who couldn't imagine crossing over to support a Democrat. They fear Joe may turn sharp left and leave them behind. I don't believe that because I know the measure of the man. It's reasonable, faithful, respectful. And you know, no one pushes Joe around the through line in each night, and each speech was the threat our current president poses to our democracy. The urgency of this moment this administration has shown it will tear our democracy down. If that's what it takes for them to win, so we're at an inflection point constant chaos. Leaves us adrift. The incompetence. Makes us feel afraid. Callousness makes us feel alone and if we want a chance to pursue any of these goals, any of these most basic requirements for a functioning society. We have to vote for Joe Biden in numbers that cannot be ignored. Because right now, folks who know they cannot win fair and square at the ballot box are doing everything they can to stop us from voting.

Maya King is a reporter covering race, ethnicity and campaigns for politico. Alex Ready is politics reporter from McClatchy. And instead, Herndon is national politics reporter for The New York Times. Instead has actually been in the place where we were all supposed to be this week in Milwaukee instead. Could we start with you and tell us what it is like to actually be in a convention city? Where there's no convention. You know, I think that the, um the levels of the absence here had been even greater than folks would imagine. There are times when you would not even know that the convention was ostensibly being hosted a block away. There are very few protesters. There is very few sign age, the kind of hallmarks of convention that we're used to seeing. Are just totally absent. And so the few reporters who are here you know, have have have watched it virtually just like everyone else. There has been some some programming this week. They had a drive in to see that as a kind of projected in Delaware at the drive in of fireworks at the Milwaukee Zoo, That was about the only in person thing. And even that was kind of hard to see him for press to get into Just a cz. One anecdote or how difficult it wass. You know, I tried. We took a five minute convincing to get this bar to play Joe Biden speeds that the few reporters were at turning a. The kind of kind of exploitation from them was well, they took it from a city way. So so so why play it?

U.K. 'Actively Avoided' Investigating Russian Interference, Lawmakers Find

"Parliamentary report on Russian influence in the United Kingdom is out this morning. And it's bad, among other things that says the UK government actively avoided trying to figure out of Russia tried to influence the Brexit referendum for more. We've got NPR's London correspondent with US Frank Langfitt, who's looking at this high, Frank. Hey, Rachel. I mean, I said, it's bad. It's that that the British government would be intentionally trying to avoid figuring out the extent of Russian interference. I mean, what can you tell us? It's well, it's It's completely damning people here. Actually, we've been waiting for this report for months. And we thought we were going to find out if the Russians tried to influence the Brexit vote. The answer, in fact, was different and definitely it was more unsettling. Stuart Hosey is with the Scottish National Party is also in the parliament, and this is what he said today at a press conference. No one in government knew if Russia interfered in or sought to influence the referendum because they didn't know want to know the UK government of actively avoided looking for evidence that Russia interfered. Why, Frank? Why wouldn't anyone in the British government want to know this? That's actually really easy answer, and I think the answer is this. It would have undermined the Brexit referendum. Remember the biggest decision of the British people in decades? It's already changed the course of British history and the person who was front and center and that was a guy named Boris Johnson, who is now the prime minister. So if you say Russia interfered, then it could undermine this thing that has changed the course of British history. You can see why nobody certainly in the government wanted to mess with that. Ah Stewart, Hosey said No one would touch with a 10 foot pole and he went on and said this. This is in stark contrast. To the U. S response to reports of interference in the 2016 presidential elections, No matter how politically all quarter, potentially embarrassing there should have been an assessment of Russian interference in the referendum. They must now be one. Okay, So did this report find Russian influence anywhere in the British government? Yes, it absolutely did. One is the Scottish referendum. This was 2015 when Scotland was voting for independence. And the reason this is important is from the perspective of Russia. Vladimir Putin would want Scotland to leave the United Kingdom to weaken it. It's the same reason why we know that he wanted the Brexit vote to pass so that it would weaken the European Union. But another part and everybody kind of knows everybody knows this, Rachel, But another thing that that's mentioned here is that London is such a Place for money laundering, and this is a really good quote that I liked, frankly from the text. Russian influence in the UK is the new normal. Successive governments have welcomed the oligarchs and their money with open arms, providing them with the means of recycling illicit finance through the London laundromat. So how's the British government responding? Not much of anything, considering what this report says. You might expect something more robust. Dominic Robby's the Foreign secretary, he has has a boiler plate response so far, saying Russia must desist from these attacks. And that the UK has defend its country and democracy and values from such a hostile state. NPR's Frank Langfitt in London. Thanks, Frank. We appreciate it always breaks it

African National Congress published Mandela's message - June 10, 1980

"The Day was June tenth nineteen eighty. The African National Congress published a message that are tight leader Nelson Mandela wrote in response to so wait. Oh, uprising in nineteen, seventy six. At the time Mandela was imprisoned. In nineteen, forty, eight, the National Party came to power in South Africa and began implementing the policy of apartheid at the time, racial segregation existed in the country, and the white minority held political power. Though. Segregation had long been in practice. Apartheid extended policy. Dictated where people could live and work based on race. The Population Registration Act required people to be classified and registered as black, white, coloured or other. Pass laws reinforced the ideology of white supremacy by controlling the movement of black South Africans. Plenty of other apartheid laws were passed that enforce the country system of racial segregation and disadvantaged the majority black population. Nelson Mandela was a key figure in the anti-apartheid movement in the early Nineteen Forties Mandela joint the African National Congress or a C. A political party that became dedicated to ending apartheid once the National Party came to power. In the decades after apartheid became official government policy resistance to the system sprang up South Africa. The ANC was heavily involved in the fight against apartheid and Mandela emerged as a leader in the ANC. In June of Nineteen seventy-six black students in Soweto township led protests in response to the government, mandating the use of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction in schools. Afrikaans was a language of the white minority. As thousands of students marched in the demonstrations. The police responded by shooting at the children. Many children were killed and the Soweto uprising spread across the country. At the time of the so wait, oh, uprising Nelson Mandela was in prison, serving a life term after being convicted of sabotage in the Rivonia Trial in one, thousand, nine, sixty four. During his time in prison, Mandela continued to write and support the anti-apartheid movement and people help Tim Smuggle his writing out of Robben Island prison. One of the messages he wrote from Robben. Island was in response to the Soweto uprising. On June. Tenth Nineteen, eighty, the ANC published this message, stating that it took more than two years to reach them. It included an introduction by Oliver Tombo who was president of the African National Congress. The introduction acknowledged the importance of Mandela's quote. Call to unity and mass action, especially since nineteen eighty marked the twenty fifth anniversary of the Freedom Charter, a document ratified in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five, that demanded equal rights for all South Africans. In the introduction, the ANC urged readers to quote make one thousand, nine hundred a year of united mass struggle. In the message Mandela laid out how quote white domination is held in check by force of arms, and how apartheid was opposed by many people, he also called for black unity instead that quote. Victory is certain. Near the end of the message, he wrote the following. Unite mobilize fight on between the and Ville of United, mass action and the hammer of the armed struggle. We shall crush apartheid in white minority racist rule. Mandela was released from prison a decade later in one, thousand, nine hundred. Negotiations to end apartheid soon began and Mandela became president of South Africa in one, thousand, nine, hundred four.

Rakhine and ruin: insurgency in Myanmar

"On Tuesday. A driver for the world. Health Organization was killed in rock kind state in Myanmar. After his car was hit by gunfire the attack took place in a region where government troops have been locked in fierce fighting with the Arakan Army which wants greater autonomy for the state and for the kind of Arakan people countries including Britain and America have called for an end to fighting amid the cove nineteen pandemic but clashes have intensified governments. Flailing response seems to be boosting. The Arakan Army and the and army declared a month-long ceasefire but it was rejected by the government as unrealistic. Charlie McCann Economists Southeast Asia correspondent fighting between the army and the Burmese military has escalated over the last two months as has a war of words that they've been fighting. Each group has blamed the other for firing at the. Who car which was carrying swabs from patients to be tested for Krona virus. So this conflict get it start then. The conflict erupted on January fourth. Two Thousand Nineteen not coincidentally Myanmar's Independence Day about three hundred and fifty fighters from the army attacked for police posts in northern. Rakhine state killing thirteen officers. Now there had been skirmishes between the American army and the Burmese military before that but the insurgents had never been quite so brazen in response the government. Which of course is led by Aung San Succi a Nobel Peace Prize winner instructed the army to crush the rebels and the military has since deployed an estimated. Fifteen thousand to twenty thousand troops and deployed heavy artillery airstrikes hidden and even naval patrols despite all this the economy is actually making some headway. And so what are the stakes in this fight? What is it that the army wants with African army are ethnic rock kind? Buddhists who are longing for independence. They feel neglected by the central government for decades. Rakhine is one of me and Mars poorest states and the advent of civilian rule with Aung San Suu Dci in two thousand sixteen Only exacerbated tensions the Eric a National Party won a majority of parliamentary seats in the state of Rakhine and they believed that Aung San Suu Cheese Party. The National League for Democracy would let it nominate the state's chief minister instead the ANALII appointed one of their own and the a. n. p. and and many were kind sell. This is a great betrayal. That sense of embitterment deepened in two thousand eighteen. When the police killed seven protesters and arrested that. Npr's chairman all of which contributed to further radicalizing the raccoons and this is a state in. Myanmar. There's not unfamiliar with with sectarian tensions. That's right in two thousand seventeen. The Burmese military launched its clearance operations against the hinge a persecuted Muslim. Ethnic Minority Walser lived in Rakhine state. The kind the hinge Are Two of many ethnic. Minorities got it across me and mark who are discriminated against and are advocating for fighting for more freedoms if not independence and ask for the conflict between the Arakan army on the national military. How how's that going? The military is suffering terrible casualties. And the army are are humiliating. The military I conducting hundreds of duck shins of politicians businessmen civil servants and indeed soldiers the military's accustomed to siege warfare not to the kinds of tactics being deployed by the army which hides the jungle but also operates an urban areas which takes pot shots at our patrols also does all these brazen things like bombings and abductions and to the military's really floundering. It's response the army's successes really driven in large part by the group's Commander Thuan Rot nine. I am the leader of Argon. Army Major General Plan Renai educated. He's charismatic he's young. We have lost our rights. The rights of the indigenous people in contrast to many of the leaders of the countries other insurgencies who has been described to me by an analyst as comprising the FISA Club of guerrilla leaders. The commander recently called on his followers to throw off the shackles of Burmese. Racism and colonialism. So uses this very rousing language. Harks back to the long periods when kind state was a glorious independent kingdom. Every American has a dream in their heart is slickness is mirrored. In the group's social media videos which feature attractive young soldiers declaring their love for their homeland and engaging in wholesome wrestling matches we will never ever give up and and so with its army on the back foot. Then how has the government responded to this slick operation having handedly in June? It blocked mobile Internet service to about one million people in Rakhine engine states according to Human Rights. Watch this is one of the world's longest government imposed Internet blackouts last month. That also blocked access several news websites. That report on the conflict as well as designating the Eric Armenia. A terrorist organization that then enabled police to charge journalists who interviewed. That can army's commander in chief with violating the Counter Terrorism Law and we're kind civilians are really coming under fire. Amnesty International claims that the military has been shooting indiscriminately at recline towns and has been torturing and murdering civilians. We know that more than one. Hundred thousand civilians have been displaced by the fighting and now a meteoroid reports shows that forty two civilians have died since March twenty third and so again in our we have this example of the military taking an extremely heavy handed approach against its own citizens under the watch of Aung San. Suu She I mean. Her reputation suffered greatly after the crisis. How do you see this crisis? Playing out on Sun suits. He won election twenty-six teen on her promise to bring peace to the country the fact that her government has instructed the military to crush the rebels as she put it has designated them a terrorist organization. There's no way that she'll be able to bring about peace with methods like those to me. It looks as if the conflict is only going to escalate the atkin armies ten unflicting so much damage the government will have to make some concessions and indeed has over the past six months more than two hundred hand government employees and Chen state which is just north of re kind. A lot of the fighting has taken place have resigned after being threatened by its fighters. Now the rebels don't have the firepower to defeat the government militarily but they might not need to if they can inflict enough humiliation. The government might decide to retreat from the fight and seek a political settlement. Either way see piece for the possible future curly. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you

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

"Last. Anybody has had sex in the way getting seriously. That is incredible love that t-. So, basically, the convention was this war between the while supporters who were supporting the incumbent, vice president supporting the progressive allies of the new deal. And these party bosses who were attempting to nominate Truman, and as we talked about this before we had primaries, so a lot of this was behind this all behind closed doors and basically after the first day when it was very clear that Wallace was the favorite, the party bosses made as many deals as they possibly could and switched people's opinions over the course of the, the sorry, not the first day, the second day into the third day they made as many deals as they could to make sure that Truman one. And then we went to a first ballot Wallace wa- was had, you know, when he wasn't on. Exactly. So it had to go to a second bout like you talked about. And because then everyone could vote as they wanted to. We got Truman. Yeah. By a landslide landslide who went on to become as we know, vice president, and then FDR died eightyish days into his fourth term, and then that meant that Truman was president for pretty much almost L for years, and then went on to get reelected for a second term, and so much happened during his presidency. It's insane. And because Truman, wasn't like abreast of anything. He was just thrown into. Okay. So we've been developing the H bomb. You know, are the atom bomb? We're going to drop this and he did. Yeah. Twice and thrown into ending the war thrown into so I mean relatively relative to being completely ignorant to everything Truman did really I think, okay? Job being president. But what a crazy. So for me like the place interesting or this convention is interesting. And the reason we were doing this plays because it's really about the philosophies behind the Democratic Party, and the way politics, works, and the way we elected people, and we're the people fit into that, which at the time was nowhere. The people were there, any feels like the people are still not involved and into some degree that it is all about party politics, and delegates politicians sort of making deals in order to do these things. And at the end of the day, you're like, wait a second. What I wanted. I do a went outside and you shot the dog. I don't understand. What's that darn saying? Yeah. Right. And that's our that's the play. Yeah. You must come to this play, literally. Unbelievable. She's, yes. No. If you want to come to the play, it's it is super mazing.

"I know. And that's really dear no. I am so safe. But actually. Yeah, this tradition of violence in congress. And in the Incan ventures in general has been around forever. It's a part of our it's a part of our discourse in America violence, physical violence. Reflective of the fact that mostly white men have been in control of politics for many years, because only white men could be like you know what I'm just going to punch you. Upset, but with so interesting. A lot of the time, there's a book by JoAnne Freeman that explains this in more depth. There's but basically, like a lot of it had to do with honor. And it wasn't so much like I want to kill you. It was like I am going to how dare you disagree with me. Do you bite? Your thumb at Mesa. What it is. It is. Right. And so you had a lot of instances of the one punch, the one one punch jab. You know. Yeah situation, but it happened all the way back into the early eighteen hundreds through, like, especially around the civil war. A lot of dealing with, you know which state as new states came into the union which states were slave states, which slate states were not slave states. And then it just continued in two conventions as well. So forty four it was definitely around when our Playtex place, and then as we talked about earlier and sixty eight it was a big situation. That, that the ceremonial punch turned into a ceremonial weapon candle. But, you know what's so interesting about it for me is that it puts in perspective, I think a lot of like the shaming, and slandering and all the stuff that we see right now, it's actually it's been, there's been violence in our in our in our politics from the beginning. Yeah, your friend Andrew Jackson. But also still on. Yeah. Oh uncomfortable. On the twenty right on the twenty big one, one. It's so people. So many people use a twenty dollar barrel. But more people use the dollar and more people use a penny. And those are good guys relatively well, Lincoln was, but yeah, but yeah, but slandering violence all the stuff that we see a lot happening on the Twitter right now just happened face-to-face racing. It happened quite a bit days, when you could just like, look somebody in the eye and punch them in the ceremoniously his to show your disagreement and that they've to honor, but yeah. To plug, like I just want to like plug JoAnne Freemen's books. Book is called the field of blood violence in congress and the road to civil war. Wow. This is like a game. Thrones style. But she goes into it, and a lot more depth than I am. Right now totally. Yeah. So that was definitely a part of our, our politics. So steel is yeah. Very much. And then another, like, just to touch on the nineteen forty four democratic national convention, which is. The play which is the play. Yeah. Talk to us. I know but tell ardent this convention was so unique. And weirdly, because, you know, and doing all this research it doesn't come up a lot, even though like it was because of the nature of FDR and where he wasn't his illness. It was such an important convention. Yeah. Well, I think a lot of the reason why it doesn't come up when, when you're looking up contested conventions, or bloody conventions or Ryan..

"Wow. Yeah. How cool and their names are the names that appear on the ballot under beneath the names of the candidates so much like the electoral college. Liz, yeah. Yep. Wow. Okay. Great. At large candidates are selected by the state Democratic Party at the party convention in may and have promised to support a particular candidate, and we will be awarded proportionately to candidates based on the result of the primary. This is also how like we're talking specifically about how they award them in New York state now like nationally. Yeah. Because we can't do it state by state. We simply can't we do. It's no. I'm saying we as Lizzie and art in Danny can't go and talk about this thing on New York. So in New York state. Pledged at large and pledged delegates, and then like we said the super delegates are the unplugged delegates in their free to bounce around bouncy mound. Yep. Love. And that all comes from Nigel Shuhua at DNA info that was very helpful, the great thing, Nigel. So, basically, for the Democrats, this, as primary and caucuses gras around the country in the year leading up to the, the general election for president, and then all of those votes are awarded proportionally per state, and various forms of like types of delegate, right, depending on this depending on the dates rules in what kind of delegates, they allow for and then the GOP 'cause that's just that was just the Dem's the GOP. And this is from the Washington Post heard of it heard of it by Kevin Irma. Ker Kevin shawl and Ted Melnik Kevin, Kevin Inteva Kevin. Ted bless. Okay. Okay. Their system is messed up, and I didn't realize how misstep it was because top performing top performing candidates often get more delegates than their total suggests that they should where the Democrats are like, okay, you got you got fifty percent. So you get half of the votes for the state, and then the next person got, you know, twenty five percent. You get that at a quarter of the vote. Yeah. And they award them sitting down with a piece of paper and a pencil like doing the math Kerry over these numbers, one more time with the advocate. More time with an Abacus, make sure that they're all right? The, the Republicans don't do that, honestly. I'm an eyeball this. Okay, my arm and everybody to the left of me to this candidate to the right of me. Is that candidate go on go forth? So they have some winner, take all states. There's quite a few of them. There are eight oh, seems like a lot in the country of fifty states. It's, it's. Percentage. Yeah, excellent. I am with the Republicans on the math. I really. I get it. You did grow up in tex-. I did showing. Yes, they're eight states for the Republican convention that are winter take all and those are Montana, Arizona. South Dakota Nebraska Ohio, New Jersey Delaware in Florida so winning candidate and a statewide vote gets all of the state's delegates even if they ever in less than fifty percent of the vote. I just have to win the majeure. They have to be the they have to be the person with the most other states operate under a winner. Take more scenarios buck off, now they're just doing this to guess. Let me know winner takes more. Not all but not all. Yeah. Just just more just more. They get more. So there are ten days until who do that. And these states were ward winners reward the, the winner of the state heavily in some the winner in each congressional district earns all three of that district's delegates. So like it kind of goes by it's like a bonus..

"We would get the number of delegates apportion to us knows conventions. The thing I'm confused about is it that they're proportional to the amount of votes. Overall like the votes cast for all the candidates, or is it just like the votes that the, the proportion to the amount of democratic votes cast just democratic votes cast? Okay. So of all the democratic candidates running in the occas. It's the primary. Yeah. Yeah. Work. Okay. He's not. Right. We are high asks over here. Questions. K next rule, will the Democrats do not have any winner, take all states what? No wait. No never mind. That's about thing. It's a bad thing. The Republicans have it and we're gonna, I'm gonna talk about it. It's super interesting because I didn't realize fucked up their system is it's really messed. That's so surprising. I know together in a way that I think is sort of beautiful in nuance look to them as a role model for how I wanna let intially craft my life, and sort of, like, as I just want to use to reflect upon me. You know what I mean? I know. Well don't do that their best love. Today, the Democrats have no winner take all states candidates, receive less than fifteen percent of the vote are awarded no delegates. Why? Just because I'm candidate who would get less than fifteen percent of the vote like. Delegates. With my hotel stay like if you stay at the Holiday Inn express you get one. But then what happens to the other? So it's like if you, if you were, if you get less than fifteen than the other, but you still are contributing to the overall percentage, then your then you just get swallowed up into somebody else's. Yeah, the, the votes would go to you the Dougie to go to the other kindergarten it. Okay. And this helps to weed out weekly performing candidates who like you know. It's time. This is going to happen. A lot in twenty two. Yes. Poor K there. I mean. Yeah. Thousand forty thousand candidate. For the democratic nomination. Right. What I think will be interesting as like as, as the primary start, how many people drop how many people age out, but then also how many people stay in the race? Like, if there are enough, people still left when the primary and caucuses start that if nobody gets, like, what if a lot of people get near fifteen or did you know what I mean? Like what if it's so split, but nobody gets fifteen fifteen. Yeah. Yeah. Am I not even then we're going to have tolerance very long convention? Yep. In time presents going to have to look at that as the head of the time. I mean don't know what talk about that. Just call me because, you know, when you split when you have a lot of people, you can lay the groundwork for a contested convention with multiple people getting large percentages of the vote. We'll talk about that in moments in moment, after the twenty six okay, so I'm sure you guys. Remember during the twenty sixteen election, a big brouhaha. I drank it away. It's, it's, it's, it's in my liver. The there was a big Raho of the super delegates. Yes. There are three ways that you can become a super delegate. One is being in elected official to public office. If you're a democrat, this is to be one of the four hundred thirty eight members of the Democratic National Committee as a loyal party activist powerbroker. Well, I, which I am, but you are. Yes. Yes. And then the third and. The third way to become a super delegate is you become one for life. Having served as president vice president, DNC chair or democratic leader in either chamber of the US congress love. Yep. Yep. So if you are one of those things if that was ever your job, if you were ever at the president of the United States, you're super delegate for life. So what happened in two thousand sixteen was that a lot of the super delegates. There was a perception thing around the super delegates, who they were going to go for other Bernier Hillary, and because Hillary was a democrat, and Bernie, Bernie, is an independent that Hillary was basically, the establishment candidate, you know, was the one who is going to be the nominee for the super delegates pledge loyalty to Hillary..

Well, also love the way that you described a convention as the way convention is to post. That's what supposed to happen.

They run their own ships differently. The Democrats award their delegates proportionally to the number of candidates. Rec- the number of votes, a candidate received in the state's primary or caucus. So, like, if we're all running in Iowa, which we are, which we are. Always always, we're perpetually running continually. It's that time of year again, good eye on.

"Is that there is that if you can. In order for the Democrats to to truly be a national party. We've got a compete in not just the coast, but it back in the heartland, the rural places, and that starts with engaging with people they can relate to and like from all walks of life. And that's what we tried to do in two thousand six with people like sheriff, Brad Ellsworth. And that's what we're trying to do today with acting secretary of defense. Dan Fiene is served in Iraq and also teach for America. It starts with as you said, Selena, the people being open to it and having a conversation and not getting so partisan about it actually trying to and not over promising either. By the way you were saying it, it's not about over promising. I'm gonna deliver x, y, and z. On the first day it's about these are the values I share, and this is who will fight for because this is who I am. If Lena, you talked a lot about these coalitions that came together for President Trump. Do you see this as a permanent realignment, Leonard, this things that start about the going out to do the book and did it with Brad Todd? We wanted to think. You're that out. We wanted to know wasn't a fluke or have these parties realigned. And we came to the conclusion that this is a realignment, but you know, part of the book is interviews with two seven different types of architects of voters that voted Obama. Obama Trump in these five states, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa that flipped and help put Trump into office. These voters have realigned the party, and it's interesting and coalition of different kinds of proprieties of voters. But when I went back out to do the book, oh, throughout two thousand seventeen two thousand early two thousand eighteen. I saw this coalition was not a fluke and the party the Republican party has realigned. And as to what John that said about Ryan, Paul Ryan leaving, he's right, I think Ryan ISM and sort of entitlement reform is gone. From this party at least for generation Flynn, Zito, John lap. You guys have been great. Thank you. So thank you, Amy. So we're voters are critical beyond the twenty eighteen election. Remember each state regardless of its size and population gets two senators. Congressional scholar norm Ornstein tweeted this statistic out the other day by twenty forty or so seventy percent of Americans will live in just fifteen states, meaning thirty percent will choose seventy senators. In other words, sparsely populated states will have an outsized influence over both the composition and control of the Senate. And that means that winning a majority of the Senate ultimately runs through the center of the country, not suburban and coastal America. That's all for today. You can find us on Facebook and of course, call us anytime at eight, seven, seven, eight my take or send us a tweet at the takeaway, or you can send it to me at Amy Walter. Thanks so much for being with me today. I'm Amy Walter. This is the takeaway. I'll talk with the next week..

"Not unreasonable to begin with labour's at a position where it might be able to win a vote of confidence jeremy corbyn will remain as its leader in a successful negotiating a deal he would become prime minister even though at least half of his members of parliament do not regard a misfit to do the job personally or politically they will have to acknowledge they want a great victory it wouldn't be possible even honorable to withhold their support mr carbon might be able to form of government with fewer mps the in the conservatives but only with the support of the scottish national party he'll be able to secure it by offering them a further referendum on scottish independence he would need his party is fordham on this but it's quite likely that they would given it's a price of power if liberal democrats liberal democrats had more than ten members of parliament he might secure their support by offering a second referendum on the terms of leaving the european union most labour mps in reality would be happy to offer this though they will note has little support even if deals like this prove possible and we do not lapse into pretty immediate chaos the new government would be highly unstable would never majority for one thing i'm not saying every bit of this were to happen the more predictions you make them more likely is one of the we'll be wrong the resigning bit of forcing people out of the cabinet is an example after all mr corbett has form he likes stick around he could lose in the commons frequently and still remain in post john mcdonnell has been explicit that he thinks the politics of this street are required to supplement parliamentary democracy a tussle between a corbyn government and mps would be very messy meth either just saying even if he got a vote of noconfidence he would leave premise members the hardest part of any speculation my labour government's making a credible claim about what might happen in brexit i'll come back to this i come back then it is actually so such a terrible idea that you should pray the theresa may winds tomorrow because jeremy corbyn is so and john mcdonnell are so bad and their shadow government.
