Couple of years ago explaining why couldn't bring back the thick of it think of what on the basis that we knew what the conventions of politics and therefore to wander away from them but if the conventions don't exist anymore if they're being reinvented every day. It's very difficult to know what the what's normal and politicians are sort of inventing their own a of this averting the rules of politics deliberately and therefore the comedians. I find who are most adapted at getting to the truth of what's going on at like journalists before ian hislop the private eye editor. And have i got these few team captain. He told me company about. There's nothing new in the idea. there are. politics is beyond sata. The first writer. I know who said sata's pointless juvenile He was the roman saturday he was right.

That's what a pop-up says about one of the things that i was thinking about in terms of when you go to which politics when you've got a politician who is essentially communist difficulties funny one of his appeal as he makes his own jokes. Yes is that more difficult is satire. Easier or more powerful. If you're sending up someone who's trying to be taken seriously than if the guy's is essentially leveling in people laughing at ways doing well. It's a little tricky. We had similar kind of problem with trump last year. Which was he. He's like so absurd in his real life. What you do all right.

"We've had these leaked messages from dining street showing that number. Ten trying to sideline nicholas sturgeon from the summit over concerns that she would hijack it to push for scottish independence of advisors saying that johnson's shouldn't be seen shaving platform with sturgeon in the run-up the event and that she should be neutralized by including all the other devolved leaders wherever possible. Now it's is a constant moon up here that that everything ends up being seen through the lens of the constitution. And i think it would be cutting on a whole new level. If cop twenty six ended up getting pulled into the constitutional might as well. And of course peter you talked about extinction rebellion protests. Making these issues. More sort of salient in making the public. Think about the more of course that will be hugely multiplied. When the cop twenty six conferences happening very soon winter that is very true and extinction rebellion. Not the kind of protests arm of the green party but particularly thompson omen becomes on their leaders links will be that much more and i think very very much when it comes to call twenty six the party in england and wales feel that it's kind of their role to hole boys john since the fire over the promises he he he makes. I think they very very much expect in to make a big show promising law stuff but for not necessarily chief that much and it's going to be interesting to see how much they do yoga themselves to extinction rebellion particularly over things like this cause extinction rebellion roxy quiet divisive group that very very popular amongst the young but there's polling show that population large than least popular protest group in the uk and for the greens in in wealth is going to be a little bit of a test and cop. Twenty six months away. They show what they do definitely want to watch both north and south of the border. I think peter walker in libya books. Thanks both very much. thank you thank you.

Johnson's promised to an inquiry into the handling of the pandemic. That's what you to start next year. Think nicholas sturgeon in scotland to begin by the end of the year but so far at least mark drake. It's holding out against him. Wells will howard to achieve a welsh inquiry. Not least because he's made a great show of wanting an increase pows. Away was an increased responsibility in so-called home rule and yet just he want the scrutiny. That comes with that now. There are good reasons why he thinks needs to just be a uk inquiry. There was significant parts of the pandemic where the handling of the virus in wales was made harder by the uk government especially around testing. There was a deal the whales and secured with the company for five thousand tests. Back in april when we've been told to test test test which was commandeered by the government. There was also an issue where the uk government sets up a testing center in the kind of stadium which Without actually telling the welsh government or public health wales which as she was on a cajoled testing system so actually was tests. Which don't by the welsh government. Somebody white house labs and the only identified laid people. What was everyone can not just in your throat. So as low reasons why he would stop. There's also very very jim. Reasons that the welsh government needs to be properly scrutinized and not simply a footnote in a wider. uk inquiry. Now some of these are simply the death figures so actually follow. People died in it was in the second wave of the virus. Zion in i way the welcome overwhelmingly was in control of the handling of the pandemic in the second wave. And there were issues fe. Wales couldn't have this tops. The longest circuit breaker lockdown back in october last year. Because she wouldn't extend a scheme just for wales so that did tons of the wash and a little bit. But there's there's no doubt that the key decisions that we made in wales simply affected people in wales and lessons need to be learned in wales. And there's a strong argument. Made that if you do not scrutinized. These decisions with wells itself actually makes a mockery of wanting further devolution. That's a real a real issue facing at moderate and he's been sent a letter by the welsh brief brief families group which are saying that they won't strung on sesame wealth has earned the slightly different The zone health service and if decisions made about hit we should really cutting appropriate the as yet.

Sue the health board heating glasgow Share has introduced restricted visiting teams and she'd warnings to people not tame to any because they're really under strain as you say our skills have been back for a couple of weeks ninety so that's part of the reason that cases are higher are strictures lifted on august the ninth.

I've just totally conscious of time. Anybody got anything lighter. A bit of fun from your. Who's got somebody who's got story about. Danny devito me go there to give give us your best danny de vito spoils the punchline as i was going to introduce the i was going to say that. There's a rather unusual casting call ad in northern ireland. That's being called and movie. Extras recently has been searching for someone who is four foot five inches tall on boasts of forty one inch waistline. And that's because as revealed they were helping looking for a body double for the hollywood star downing nato his us sitcom. It's always sunny in philadelphia.

On they have been looking for someone to play diabetes character. Frank the wart hog. He's coming is that is that because he's not coming to audit i. I'm not sure. I suppose they. This is sort of a thing that they do quite often comes at different films.

They just put in a bobby doubled. So perhaps it's something like that but this this could turn out to be a very good windfall for whoever is chosen because i notice that this ad show was on its fifteenth season and has been commissioned for another four seasons in tokyo so if they ever come back to the island.

This is the sort of the substance of your book. It's called blake cup. How unexcited nicholas sturgeon went to war. And we've discussed this. Before in kingston is best many times joining. Explain this extraordinarily complicated series of events of who knew what when who alleged what what was investigated how that was only investigator who said what about how it was badly investigated if you can just sort of sum up for us. What what did you think was the key with the key events in this in the Clearly alexander As we mentioned was cleared In a scottish court of any criminal wrongdoing but the the relationship between the two of them suffered irreparably. Yes so i think the key events actually did back to his time in office when as we know new at least two. Civil servants had raised informal issues with their line. Managers of bite alec salmon's behavior. Nothing was done about that at the time on the book explores the culture and alexander government at that time and hi there was failures in the civil service holiday judy of for their staff on the gd to deal with these types of issues when they arose when what what happens then is in.

Alex salmond is taken his. Tv she went rt. So that relationship breaking dawn politically is occurring up. Same time dot.

The scottish government has changed its procedures in the wake of the harvey weinstein's scandal and the metoo movement in the whole dry for social change. That was going on at that time.

A fashion costs taxpayer. More than half a billion pollens And we have a criminal investigation going on simultaneously which as we know it will ultimately leads to his acquittal on all charges which leaves us neither the situation not officially those two scottish government this to the to the complaints to the scottish government by the two women are still officially on the books of the scottish government because while the court decided was not that the complaints had numeric but the investigation was procedurally unfair.

And i think that would be a catastrophic scenario attorney for this country but for this country standing in the world. I think we would end up in a purple list. All of our own sort of slightly above read where no one is allowed to even wave away from across the channel. I should also point out depending on where you're listening to this that there are people like city in london nicholas sturgeon in scotland. Andy street new. Remember west midlands. Who were sticking to face mask rules. Scotland sticking various other restrictions. at once. again it's the kind of the government says one thing but there is a splintering the country and a lot of people are just gary. No look after people. It's a printable splintering. And it's one that johnson relies on this. I think this is so disingenuous. Nick robinson various typically observed on the today programme that the fact that lockdown restrictions are removed from law does not reduce the liability of any body or company to its employees or to the public. With whom deals. And so of course you can rely on public transport buses to say we wheels still insist on face masks on london underground so effectively johnson can cry freedom and say yeah. We've along unlocked it. All and reliant private employers and public bodies to say careful now overrated.
"nicholas sturgeon" Discussed on Podcast – Women in Leadership
"We've all got stories of our own betrayals or you know not being cared for not being heard not being supported and sometimes violently and then if you look our history our collective history is that women have been burned at the stake for having opinions. Women have been treated like chattel. Women have been called second. Ray dismissed scrutinize silence. This is real part of our history. And i don't think that when we go into leadership off strife leadership we understand the extent to which those histories i asked. Arrays really show up in our interaction of as leaders were trying to overcome millennia of being second on being chattel being bought and sold. I mean even when you think of the the rape law initially was a crime because man was interfering with another man's property it wasn't show so as always being a charter. You know it's. It's really quite interesting that you say it's a trauma collective trauma that we all have the trauma. We need to heal this healing. I i hear from storage feminist. Who who banged the table and say women don't need fixing am i really do. Stand what they mean by that because the inferences the in order for us to be taken seriously in the marketplace we really need to be more like the man you know we need to fix up and be more like grow some balls need to develop deep tone in our voice and of course that's rubbish. We don't need to be healed. That wouldn't be healing. Wouldn't be tantamount to healing if we just try to be more like the men. But my experience of working. What i call behind the max with women heart to heart with women who are in these positions is that we might not need fixing but we definitely need to be thinking about our healing. We definitely need to be thinking about how our histories alyce. Her stories are affecting how we show up right now and that the really deep pit one of the things you mentioned there was about the voice on. It's one thing that really strikes me how quick men on sometimes women and fairness are to criticize a woman because of her voice like the tone the pitch the host in a way that they never would do with men they just ignored.

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.

Hack voted against independence in 2014, but she'll vote Ford if she gets another chance. In part because she thinks Johnson's a hypocrite. She cites the prime minister's refusal to fire his chief advisor after he drove across England and violation of the national lockdown earlier this year. We've been following the rules up here on to be told that we could have broken the rules and it's fine and the government will just stand by you because he happens to be the chief aide was just ridiculous. It was heartbreaking for a lot of people when they learned that they could have just jumped in the car and drove into their parents House. Many in Scotland have also been disappointed in Johnson for making grandiose promises. We will have a test track and trace operation that will be world beating that have either fizzled or failed.

She's prepared to come up and stand in front of journalists and take questions. Every day on she's prepared to put her hands up when there's a mistake.

According to Lisa Nanday, the government doesn't even know where weakness and a new report by End Child poverty was just came out says that even before the pandemic child poverty was rocketing in the north and Midlands eight of the ten. Hardest hit areas is England less the union fracturing. Alex Scotland Wales Northern Ireland each have their own approaches to covert the government is trying to centralize control of England even though English, cities and regions were desperate for the more path more local strategies has that approach failed? Is it going to have to be more more regional? I think I don't think it's a one ONS official question. For instance, when it comes to things like testing trays I, think to have a national overarching. Sort of strategy is a disaster because obviously local people will know how to do that better. But when it comes to for instance. You know. Contagion rules. I think collaboratively in simplicity of the message is so key to their success that having a sort of different set of rules complicated rules depending on one postcode or another I think that will fall down I. I can't see that looking. I'm Scott this perceived as doing much better than England, and Cave in Wales to the extent. Are. They really doing better. Do they just have? To they have better messaging that Nicholas Sturgeon is just somebody is more trustworthy Boris Johnson. Better messaging is part of doing better. Possibly one of the key banks. I had to look at a fairly comprehensive study by the Center for Constitutional Change that looked at the totality of what we loosely termed as the first wave and found a covert destroyed trajectories peaked sooner in both Scotland and Wales and came down foster. So one could say that national OAKTON, which came too late for England came even more disastrously nights from Scotland and Wales. But death rates were significantly above national average for England and consistently. Wales and Scotland so I, think yes they have objectively done better. I had Frank Cultural Boys on the Today program saying he actually missed springs national lockdown lockdown gold because the whole country was in the same boat. Matt downs are driven by local infection rates but they all currently in the north I'm is this crisis sort of making the relationship between national local government, the north and the south worse or at least more more strained yeah.

So tightly in could be manipulated so much by central government that he doesn't have as much leeway as he used to. Conversely in the north, they know that they can They can basically demand certain things in exchange for cooperation about Kobe measures. So this puts the whole metro messing I mean previously, they were seen as you know, a Nice Democrat Nice Democratic Nice to have but not something that had genuine power, and now of course, because of covid they do it's also worth. Mentioning that Johnson himself has no real idea think of how to hold north-and-south together. If you read his conference speech last week, the only mention of the North was north London in the context of a cultural jibe, the only mention of Scotland and Wales where in the context of wind, power. he really doesn't think about this stuff any session he hasn't given any attention to how to negotiate this new difficult and fragile relationship a rope, the prominence of some of these regional mez Andy Burnham Steve.

But you think they'll be more appetite for these figures.

They're being done on conference calls this week. However the U. K. Laid out its draft free trade agreement with the EU and also confirmed firmed that country. Absolutely everything else it said before there will be border checks on goods being moved through the Irish Sea and not to mention the state of the Union. Let's hear more from Anderson former political adviser and chairman of International Communications Agency. Cicero group in a very warm. Welcome back to monocle. Twenty four just explained to us if you wouldn't mind the current situation with the brexit negotiations. Many still quite stumped this able to be happening when something else rather largest happening all around the world but nonetheless the brexit negotiations have been going on going as one would expect yeah. They're not going very well. Those a lot of saber rattling going on at this stage. It's kind of expected. Let's face it. There's been a lot of sabre-rattling going on since the since the referendum but we really have reached a pretty important moments in the UK has tabled proposals Around the checks and this is quite a very significant. Rubican that the UK has lost the will be checks on goods passing from the UK mainland to a Northern Ireland's and this comes in advance of the big showdown expected at the early part of June between Boris Johnson. Angela Vander Linden the EU Commission president. Now this was something that was never supposed to happen. There was a promise made that there would be no border checks. How was the government managed to quickly reverse so strongly on this? And what's been the response from Brussels? Well in a way the wasn't really any option while the government will boris. Johnson presented the deal that he struck with the EU the end of last year as a solution to the Northern Ireland question. That nothing would be checked. He said that several times allies have Coleman's the reality was that the protocol that the UK signed up to the deal mend the would be checks again on goods pal Singh from Great Britain mainland to Northern Ireland so really the UK government has signed up to what was already in the protocol of course the politics of this is pretty clear to see with the corona virus taking all policy making a bandwidth. I don't really think that the UK Cabinet. Office which has been central to negotiating. The next stage of this conversation had any choice. Let's explore a little bit about what is going on at West Merit Westminster at the moment. I suspect that we can argue that. The brexit negotiations are going as we would always expect them to but one thing that's emerged quite strongly from the covid nineteen pandemic here in the UK is the fact that Wales Northern Ireland. Scotland and England seem to be taking very different paths and they don't seem to be converging anytime same. Yeah we've got a full speed approach certainly to the immediate crisis. Boris Johnson joust walked. Almost two weeks ago now started the opening up of lockdown the other governments and the devolved regions nations decided to take a much much more cautious approach. We've seen that in Northern Ireland and in but today Nicholas Sturgeon. The Scottish. First Minister is going to set her own. Easing of lockdown plant. And it's going to be much much slower on the approach that's being taken from the UK government in Westminster. She's talking about four stage approach which will only start at the end of next week that will start with the ability for people in different households to meet each other but only outside then a few weeks after that. We might see the opening up of things like Gordon Centers. Then a few weeks after that we might see some sports being able to played and I don't think the schools are going to go back in Scotland until the new term in the autumn. And that's very very unlike what's happening out of the Westminster government were of course some schools will start from the first of June. Indeed there seems to be this to speed of reopening one example. That's being given a one example that the the the government itself is holding his determination to relax. Restrictions is the fact that the House of Commons will now sit in full from June. A very controversial decision. And there's lots of politics around it to watching the initial encounters between the new Labor Party. Leader here storm or and Boris Johnson. In the almost empty House of Commons Because of social distancing the prime minister has felt a little bit like he's in the courtroom. I wouldn't cure stormer used to be Britain's chief public prosecutor. He's very very good in quiet format where he can rigorously probe the prime minister and with roaring jeering conservative politicians behind him. Boris Johnson's looked rather breath. So I think there's a little bit of politics in the decision of the government to try and bring lots of MP's back We'll see whether or not it does make a difference on how they manage a much Busier House of Commons on a socially distant basis. How successful do you think this will be because there's already been criticism by those? Mp's who were either ill or shielding that. They will not be able to participate to participate using conferencing nor will they be able to vote even though they are probably perfectly capable of doing so they are at the moment and some are arguing. This is actually a fundamental problem with the democratic process. It seems to have been laid out by the leader of the House will hugely controversial as you say as every single member of parliament going to be able to take part on either in the chamber or through zoom or video. I know they're not probably going to be able to take part so. Do you have a fully effective and fully functioning and properly Democratic House of Commons. A maybe not. These are really big questions of course related to this. I mean look. The House of Commons is just a is another workplace. It's a very special workplace because it's the heart of the UK's democracy but it is just another workplace and just like every other workplace or people are going to be looking very very carefully at whether or not this easing of lock. Darn maintains both social distancing ensures. That there isn't a spike in the reinfection rate because clearly if there's a spike and the reinfection reach and my goodness if there was a significant re infections amongst members of parliament themselves then go very quickly back into reverse. We had at the beginning of this program Manu Mackerel under threat by the departure of seven. Mp's to which is effectively re removed his parliamentary majority here in the United Kingdom. We have this issue that every time the government says something someone says it to counter them with either fact or discussion. Whatever for example. They promised they're going to do Lots of testing. It didn't happen according to the timetable. The promise it The the Union would act as warm eight. Hasn't today there's been a warning that the the tracking tracing system which many people say is fundamental to the reopening of British society and Industry. Business isn't going to be done on time. How much trust is there now? It was always going to be difficult. And we're seeing this. In lots of countries. They was always going to be difficult. Moving from a very simple message around the lock down to a message arraigned opening up but the thing that I think the UK government is struggling with and I mean we talked earlier about the Scottish government in Nicholas. Sturgeon wants to play a much much more cautious game the thing. The U K government is having problems with now in terms of communications and then terms of its overall policy approach is giving ordinary people businesses workplaces confidence about the measures and the policy action is in place to allow society to open up. Once again safely and candidly when you look at some of the polling right now. It's just not where you're asking me. That question just move. We're really for the first time since the crisis began. We've seen the government and Boris Johnson's approval ratings really starting to fall quite significantly since he moved away from the stay at home message over week ago now. His approval ratings have fallen so far that actually the Labour leader and the labor leaders only been Labour leader for about five or six weeks. Now has actually moved ahead of Boris Johnson. So how governments are handling easing lockdown. All over the world is very very difficult and therefore keeping an eye on some of the opposition parties and how their response to this may differ. I think we're I'm aware more always all right now in Anderson former political adviser and chairman of International Communications Agency scissor group. Thank you very much for joining us on monocle. Twenty four twenty four is the perfect way to enjoy all.

Britain’s Unwritten Constitution Suddenly Looks Fragile
"The u._k. U._k. of wednesday's decision by her majesty the queen elizabeth the second herself to approve prime minister boris johnson's request to suspend parliament until the middle of october now a lot of people saw this as boris johnson's way to prevent his adversaries from blocking no deal brexit before the october thirty first deadline deadline and some people went a lot further than that shutting down parliament in order to force through an audio brexit which will do untold and lasting damage to the country is not democracy. It's dictatorship and if m._p.'s don't come together next week to stop boris johnson in his tracks then i i think today will go down in history. As the yuki democracy died scotland's first minister nicholas sturgeon there simon my british friend <hes> so often we we asked this of your countrymen when they come on this show what is going on. We always have the same refrain when it comes to brexit. What's the latest here. What is the significance against of what nicholas sturgeon calls the end of democracy on the island. I was thinking on the way he had told that we could spend the entire hour discussing british parliamentary procedure all the vagaries areas of operating with an unwritten constitution but it might just be easier to explain the rules of cricket to emirati. We'd get further and understand more. This is a huge huge move by boris johnson fueled by seventeen point two million voters who in that referendum three years ago now said they wanted to pull britain written out of the european union. He is essentially risking a constitutional crisis and i think even a societal crisis to try and get britain out of the european union but the problem is <hes> that he is a prime minister himself with no democratic mandate of his own replaced theresa may as a result of the votes of members visit of the british conservative party less than naught point. One percent of the british public essentially voted him in he has inherited exactly the same parliamentary array of forces parliamentary difficulties that tied to resume up in knots. We sit here and we see that shock of blond hair and we think oh. Everything's changed in the okay. Nothing's changed. The only thing that's changed is the occupant of number ten downing street and he's doing the one thing that five members of his own cabinet argued less than a month ago would be profoundly undemocratic and autocratic namely an enron an end run around parliament and he's gonna prorogue it which is a fancy name for saying suspended activities <hes> for several days i mean the number of days involved is open to debate but for five weeks parliament will not meet in what he hopes is a move that will allow him to pave the way if necessary to pull britain out out of the european union without an agreement with brussels something that he knows parliament would vote to block and there's a fundamental issue here which is sovereignty supporters of brexit have argued since the debate was first mooted that one of the reasons why britain needs to leave the european union is because we need to get our sovereignty back but britain sovereignty is enshrined in what we are all taught at grade. School is the mother of parliaments so the idea that in order to get british sovereignty back. You actually may have to suspend the activities of parliament. It's a real rhetorical problem for boris johnson and he's going to be facing. I think major protests over the next few days as a result. I cannot tell you what hugh hugh grant famous british actor tweeted about this because it would get us fined by the f._c._c. and get me thrown off the air but ron howard rank and file people reacting is this similar to what happens in the united states where there's sort of outrage on one side shrugs on another side and people sort of move onto the next outrage or is this really permeating british societies permeating me any british society because while <hes> obviously labor is is opposed to this but you also have dettori's conservatives who are posted as to you and you just saw that you know former british prime minister. John major has jumped in on on a on a lawsuit to try and stop this activity. It seems that johnson's johnson is betting that the e._u.
"nicholas sturgeon" Discussed on PRI's The World
"Stories of migrants living now in Sicily Sicily and how Italy so-called security decree has made life increasingly difficult for them. That's at the World Dot O._R._G.. One way or another the United Kingdom Magnum is planning to leave the European Union at the end of October with or without a deal as got some people wondering just how long the kingdom itself will remain united a Monday. The First Minister of Scotland Nicholas Sturgeon said that Scotland will try to break away from the U._k.. If there's no deal with the E._U. Then today the leadership fain in Northern Ireland said the party would seek a referendum also to leave the U._K.. Northern Ireland is the only part of the U._K.. To share a land border with an e you country that country would be the Irish Republic just to itself in both the north and the south there is great concern that the return of a hard border would be bad for all of Ireland Feno toolset columnist with the Irish times and the author of heroic failure Brexit and the politics of pain British Prime Minister Bryce Johnson was in Belfast today okay. He says he's ready to leave the E._U.. Without any kind of deal governing trade or anything else no IFS ands or buts. How does that affect Ireland well affects very badly? I think saint by most people in both parts of Ireland as grossly irresponsible <hes> you have to understand that the eh Belfast agreements also called the Good Friday agreements which was was made in nineteen ninety eight is a pre existing international treaty. This is not not just a casual piece of British. Law is a sovereign international treaty registered with the United Nations between Ireland and the U._k.. And also involves awesome. You know multiparty agreement within Northern Ireland finished conflict some of us thought would never never end you know confident offer thirteen years. It's incredible achievements Boris Johnson seems to not understand it at all or if he does understand it's very little interest in us. Should Fain is trying to get a referendum on the table. What would the referendum entail and how likely would that solve things yeah so? There's no doubt you mentioned in your introduction. That brexit is putting huge strain on the whole ideal United Kingdom itself Scotland Northern Ireland's. Maybe even Wales so in in relation to Northern Ireland because of the agreements in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight Northern Ireland has the right at any time. This is a great by everybody including the British to to leave the United Kingdom and join with the Republic of Ireland to create a single Irish state which is of course what Irish nationalist Yvonne was wanted but the safeguard safeguard is that this has to be passed by majority in Northern Ireland and also incidentally it also would have to be agreed to by a majority in the Republic of Ireland and so watching scientists thing. Is We want this so-called border. Police is the term given to it. We want it now. BREXIT is causing so much trouble that we think there's a possibility that a lot of promises and Northern Ireland's who would traditionally have pain opposed to leaving the United Kingdom might now be willing to do this. My own view is that this is highly unrealistic. Still I think the view of most people is you. Don't want to be doing this huge thing in the middle of all this brexit chaos as you know and and Brexit could be chaotic for another few years yet. We really don't know where this is going in the long term. I think there's little doubt that the <hes> brexit's if it goes ahead will undermine the union and will create much more demand for United Ireland but I think she'd fain is grandstanding finding someone you know in terms of saying we want this now. It's their traditional position. I don't think it's realistic. The fact is we still are going to have to deal with the border question. The government in Dublin in the Republic of Ireland even welcome Northern Ireland. If it's people voted to join the republic.
