"Diane Ryan says apologies if this question's being asked before but last week story of friendship breaking down over political differences got me wondering why is it that the left hate the right more than the right? Hate the left. I understand. It is true I understand that this to two way street. There are uncivilized from both sides. But I hear. Labor supporters proudly declaring that. They'd never kiss a Tory. Then that then there was that credit he went on your show in and said he'd never be friends with a Tory Who was that? That was a guardian journalist. Joseph Somebody Joseph Harker was it. I genuinely believe that there is more hatred from the left to the right than the other way round. Now I'll tell you what it is. I don't think I don't believe it's hatred but it's about whether or not you are the establishment and maintaining status quo or whether or not you feel that that's unfair and you need to change it so things are less visceral if you're on the right well if you're on the sort of conservative right. Not If you're on the you know I think if you think about the alt-right they are full of hate and hideous But if you're on the sort of conservative Ri- essentially you are content with the way in which society is organized. And that's what you're wanting to maintain if you're on the left you believe that some fair and you need to change it so therefore not going to accommodate people in quite the same way as the right would be happy to do. And that's that for some people that looks like hate. I would say it's more about frustration and wanting to change things. Maybe I judge it from social media too much but when I look at it and there is no other word for it they absolute hatred and bile the I've had since that exchange with dawn tone foster dawn Butler on winstone Jeremy Vine A got the point at one point where I could not look at my twitter feed because it was just so disgusting people accusing me being racist and all the rest of it and you do respond to some vet because you can't let is so just stand on social media but I'm it's thoroughly depressing because subconsciously I'm sure it makes you think well okay anything for quite life. I'm not going to say these things in the future. Even though I think somebody needs to be taken on where I disagree with and if it was if it was a white middle-aged man I would say this in exactly the same way as I would say to a black woman But I just really one the why things are going when is got to the point. Where if any white middle aged man disagrees with a black woman? You are accused of trying to totally police or of being just out and out racist and I think he. don't think you're always accused of that one too. I don't think you'll guilty of it but three some people are right. Let's not forget that it was routine Allen Com that Matt Hancock told to mind tone so it sometimes does happen quite an IPO. Say Oh well. This is the second time that someone on his right has told a an ethnic minority woman to watch what she was saying. I never that at all. All I did was disagree with what she said about. Boris Johnson I didn't I didn't I sent it. I thought it was disgraceful. What she and I do. I still stunned by every single word that I sat in that exchange but anyway right your I have one Hugh conquer. That's an is known. If that's his real name she conquer says what would be your top three words of advice for anyone wanting to go into politics and thanks to both for keeping us all going. That's don't don't don't know you don't me that I have seen it in the sense that if I had a really close friend and they said wanted my voice is to whether today I I really would urge them to be very very sure that they were doing the right thing. Both for them and their families On the other hand if if good people don't go into politics We got the politicians we deserve. And they will be a bunch. We'd political obsessive. Who should not be allowed near a ballot box so I'm slightly toward on it Because it it ought to be a noble thing to do and people ought to be proud of doing public service. But with all the downsides of it nowadays you have to be aware of those before you set you set foot in politics nowadays. Yeah yeah so I think my three words would be because I I for all those reasons. I do. Want people to carry on wanting to be in politics. of all colors representative politics. I think I would say work network and then this isn't one word but what the word would be lock beat ocoee essentially. You won't get anywhere if you don't work. You won't get anywhere if you don't make links join groups Oh gold a bird has just flown past my front window with something. Enormous hanging out of its mouth who it wasn't a little animal. I'm anyway and and you won't get on if you're not lucky and you know any of us who've got to the top politics no the we had quite considerable elements of lock in terms of the time when we were born in terms of the people we knew and the places we live in the seats that we fought all of those things lucky although it is in other areas the halt. You're lucky you guys that that is true. I would also give full words being more positive right place right time and I was always in the wrong at the wrong time. And if you look at the seat I fought North Norfolk Looking back I shouldn't afford that seat and I was advised not to do it but I didn't listen is now a conservative. Say Duncan Baker. Won It back with a massive majority in two thousand nineteen so if I had fought in two thousand nineteen rather than two thousand five when obviously the toys were there uppers I I would have won but it look. He is partly about lock. But there is the side that you make your own luck and I think that is true in politics in lots of other fields right This is from Jack. He says I'd love to hear in thoughts about the soon to be times radio which is studiously scooping up various political as to. Its new station is times radio mortal threat to LBC Well of course your Bit a posh Totty Tom Newton Dunn Going TO BE THERE CONE. Tater which in a sense a bit of an odd move because political editor of the sun is one of the top jobs in journalism. But he's wanted to gain custody for some time and I think sees. This is the way to do it and I've actually used this opportunity to make amends or not make amends. Make up with Tom Nieto. I sent him a congratulatory. Dm and he replied in a very positive way so that's all nice So you have kissed and made up with Newton that for or is that just my little fantasy really is listen. I I believe competition as a healthy thing. I think the Mo the more speech radio the better in this country. I've always thought it was really weird that in Sydney there are eleven. Lbc's yet in Britain you you've got LBC you've got talk radio which you can't get in half the country and you will soon have times radio which again you won't be able to get in half the country so that they are going to be relying on Internet listening and Alexis whatever rather than conventional digital and FM frequencies They just said Alexa Alexa Alexa. Starting talking in the background. Oh shut up. Shut up you filthy. She's still going on I think look. I'm I'm not gonNA say an awful lot about this before reasons but I do think it's slightly odd that their lineup is full of presenters. Here kind of from the same. Gene Pool. There's nobody there he thinks. Oh they're a bit different Yeah and yeah I mean I like them all I think found I know. Most of them I I don't get the strategy for this and maybe I'm missing something. I'm but they say they're going to take on radio four or good luck with that. Right Airforce GOBS. Eleven million listeners is a budget of one hundred ten million pounds times. Radio has a budget of ten million pounds. I just don't see you're not GONNA do drama. All the artie things. That radio four does so why if they let that become the narrative if they're going to try and take an ob see will wasn't that what times what taught radio was supposed to do. The radio. Figures came out this week talk. Radio has four hundred twenty five thousand listeners. Lbc has two point eight million and they've taken four years to get four hundred twenty five thousand so it. I don't think anyone should underestimate how difficult it is to start a radio station from scratch. And I'm going to be very interesting to see an an. I don't underestimate. And they've got their Hanson. Good people that are not just on the present aside on the production side so. I don't underestimate the challenge that they might provide to not just ask various BBC stations to so it'll be interesting to see how they do. I think Enrico Burrell. Oh the answers your question as well and he was particularly interested in whether or not you thought it was a competitor. Radio full auto. Lbc and I think if eve answered that stop by the way well any speech radio station that starts is a competitor to any other speech. Radio Station Well they've got to do is provide something different are. They're not going to have coolers they're not adverts so the wonder whether some of the known broadcasting presented. I mean people who haven't doubled custom for being imprint janitor for. I wonder whether they know how difficult it is to do. Sixty minutes of radio or a hundred and eighty minutes radio because they're all three programs. When you haven't got callers calling and radio found that a real challenge they just haven't been able to get the call volume said the presenters have to talk all the time. Well you can't just have panel after panel after panel guest after guest after guest that I didn't think that format will go down particularly well but as I say think it'll be it'll be interesting to watch it's development. So you had another question was no other thing that I was just one thinking about was presumably times. Radio has does it half the times journalistic newsgathering capacity as part of it. Because I mean the big thing that radio forest of course is it Scott arguably one of the best news operations like world behind it? I don't know I imagine. So whether they may do other radio stations to get the news from sky or something Iran. I don't know how they're going to do that. In terms of what it's launching That's a good question because it was supposed to genetic pool. They've put it off till June a now. I keep hearing people using the phrase late summer or later in in the summer. Well that could mean an anger tweeting junior September. Nah so nothing civil service terms. We always used to joke that if we said Autumn than that would usually be an announcement that we put out on the twenty four December corn. Let's wait and see. I have a question from Clare Reynolds. A good friend of the podcast and she says hi. Jackie and Ian the Conservatives of now push up put men up on BBC QUESTION. Time fifteen weeks in a row. I didn't know that actually not being questioned watcher. Why Does Majesty's Government Care so little about women's visibility invoices during the covert crisis and side note? Why is he still? Australia's parade of mediocre men not included Reshi. Sue Neck. Well I don't remember Golden Brown ever doing question time when he was chancellor any chance of done question time. I think one of the reasons that they've had a lot of men on because several of them have been Matt Hancock. They've had Matt Hancock on about four times the past while during the crisis because of his job on quite a few of the other representatives that they've had on how been people on the front line in the political reaction to cave in nineteen. So I mean it's an easy point to me. There aren't actually any women in leading positions on this apart from pretty patrol. Well that's the point. Is We have discussed this previously. And I actually think is a problem for the government that they looking credibly mail on August. I don't disagree with that but There was a time when I think the top three jobs were all held by women own. Slee sorry I'm on completely making that up on you had in in the LAS competent There were a lot of senior women who he did. Take a lot of media appointments and I. I completely accept the in this in this government. There aren't as many on the. You've got a lot more people from ethnic minorities in any government. Any other government has had so. It's not all one way traffic. I that is a fair point but I think that that is a Boris Johnson problem and he ousted quite a few women from his cabinet when he arrived and and sort of promised that they were up and coming women who were going to be given voices and certainly during the course of this crisis. He hasn't done that and I think we touched on this. A previous podcast not only is about the public face of the government which I think needs to sort of reflect the country. If you're going to build confidence but I think it goes beyond that to the decision making you know this very narrow group of men. Seven of whom are not that experienced in government. Either I think have been responsible for some of the missteps that the government has made and I think they would have approached the lockdown lifting the lockdown differently. Had they had women? They're saying things like what about child care? What about people wanting to see their thought? You know this is. This is a characterization of men's women's approaches in some ways but essentially a broader more diverse team is going to do a better job of getting us through this and we haven't seen evidence of that from Boris Johnson..
"one hundred ten million pounds" Discussed on The Box Of Oddities
"From a lot of sources. The the meat fat that came off when you're cooking called drippings Became the primary cooking fat. For several years people would save it and I guess they still do. American sausage. Didn't do real well in Britain but During wartime they that the tens of it came with a thick layer of fat in them so in Britain they were like yes and they started scooping that up and became very popular because they would save that sausage fat for cooking other foods. So Manny's it is the most popular condiment in the United States. I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT KETCHUP. And in the nineteen forties. People running out of eggs. So how do you make mayonnaise without eggs Now there are lots of ways and I enjoy some very delicious egg-less manages but at the time it was potatoes really potato. Manny's certainly didn't get the same taste but it did kind of substitute that that texture that you're looking for that additional moisture that you were looking for so it became like a weird potato sauce with Some oil or fat needed to be added to it and sometimes they were put a little vinegar in it to make it like this weird potato. -I vinegar a pile that they would put on their sandwiches but must have made like potato salad really redundant let's get some potatoes and then we'll put potatoes in it. Well when I make fake chicken salad that is mixed with Manas. You put mayonnaise on your bread before you put the chicken salad on there. Yeah I like Chicken Salad. Sloppy sloppy was it. The Expression Chicken Salad Sloppy Offi Yeah but chickens. You know chickens weren't easy to keep but if you kept chickens and You had them as a source. For eggs the government would ration you chicken feed rather than rationing you eggs which was really cool and It was encouraged. It wasn't always feasible. Some people just didn't have the space for it But during wartime vegetarians would receive more aggressions because they didn't get the the meat allowance so for the people who didn't have space for chickens. What was the option? How about powdered eggs dehydrated eggs? It was cheaper and easier to transport you mix it with water The government said it was. It was great when you mix it with water and you re hydrated. Everyone else disagreed. No one liked it. I've never had it. It seems terrible again. Having a post World War. Two mother growing up. She tried to convince us that powdered milk was just as good as regular milk per reason was it was cheaper and she was still in a rationing kind of mindset but we hated it and she kept trying to convince us that we couldn't tell the difference and so she would even go as far as to when we finished a real half gallon of milk. She would take them mixed up. Powdered crap import in there. And then put it in the fridge. Never fooled us. Never Nice. Try Mom yeah. I don't think I like again. There are lots of substitutes. Now that do a really good job you know. I have a jar of fake egg in the fridge right. Now that I make scrambled eggs out of it. It's great But at the time powder day was the option and not awesome. It sounds delicious. Sprinkle on top of your regular egg right now cottage cheese. I didn't know about this cottage cheese. Some people kind of sold as a substitute for meat. Now I guess I kind of recognized this thought During the seventies cottage cheese was a very popular like diet food and I guess I guess I kind of see how it could be like. Median away does have kind of a weird texture that that might satisfy. Some sort of Banjo does not agree. No settle down. Boy Feed powdered eggs or cottage cheese. Relax but sales of cottage cheese from one thousand nine hundred thirty two nine thousand nine hundred forty four went up from one hundred ten million pounds to five hundred million pounds a year. It quadrupled The government even put out recipes that they suggested people follow To make the most of this food that was. And that's when you started seeing things like cottage cheese be mixed in with Jello salad and various fruits and veggies and such came. Across some old McCall magazines in a in an abandoned house. And they were from the fifties and sixties in their full of those types of bizarre recipes. In fact one of the very first things we did when we launched the box of social media platforms was produced a short video. Recreating this what was it. Ham jello thing that we should ripostes that. Oh all right. Yeah I mean you can find it on her youtube channel. Sure share but they'd have to look for it that's true. It was the first thing we posted. Thanks so to Kraft Mac and Cheese Aka kraft dinner so Of course we we've all had it But it was very important for the average American and Canadian family Struggling struggling through those years of food rationing kraft. Dinner was actually made to help the public during the Great Depression but it became crazy popular during wartime again. It's easy to transport it's easy to rehydrate and make edible Plus I find that it's one of the most. Oddly comforting foods is just like garbage MAC and cheese. I want it sometimes and I will have a box of it by myself. Thank you enjoy day so In Britain one meat to Veg is a whole thing and it was really hard to find those meets during wartime so under pressure. The British government was importing meat from other places Some were more successful than others so corned beef was imported at this time now. Corn beef is one of the few things that I think about like as a vegetarian. I haven't had meat in a really long time but every once in awhile about corn beef because I loved that when I was a kid it was just so salty and apparently people were kind of Ma- about it but they'd eat it but others lake a species of snake mackerel that was imported from South Africa. People were not having it was called smoke and the American and British public did not see that as a suitable substitute for food at all. No thank you enjoy your day exactly like snake Mackerel. A weird fish. Yeah but it was just too different for the British Palette and Was Not a thing was an organ meat. What became popular in Britain at that time? Spam of course not first choice of most people but it was filling and it was easy to substitute your regular recipes with this thing in the name Spiced Ham. That's that's where they got the names spam. I really resented it. Hormel in their latest. Advertising campaign is trying to convince US. That spam stands for sizzle pork and That's a bit of a stretch. Who PITCHED THAT AT THE AD meeting? Here's what we're GONNA do spam means sizzle park and Elson everyone's gotTa do what they gotTa do marketings and important active selling your tinned meat. It's it's like when Kentucky Fried Chicken changed the name to KFC and tried to convince that it stood for kitchen fresh chicken and bought that. I think that ad campaign lasted a summer. Something like that. Yeah well about one. Hundred fifty million pounds were used in the war effort. Making spam a cornerstone of the troops diet but also it said that they used spam to lubricate their guns and waterproof there bootleg. So are you hungry? Yeah but I have to lubricate. My weapons became very popular for a multitude of reasons. And there you go. Food substitutes during wartime well. That's amazing and spam of course Surplus ban became a a real popular favourite with Papua New Guinea resonance after the war cannibals. They really liked it. I said that long pig. I've never seen a reliable source that that shows that that. That's the case. It's just something that you've heard continued to say as fact. I mean that's pretty much the premise of the show. Let's don't get me wrong. Nearly the premise of the show we have zero to two very little credibility We just tell each other stories. That's true I could not quote or cite a source on that. It's just something that I remember hearing over and over again growing up right which I mean you heard a lot of things I did. I was told that powdered milk was better than real milk. That was a lie okay. I'll be more careful than near future. That thing in the middle. I love reading through the FREAKS. Group page freaks box podcast group. It's still entertaining to me. When I come across comments from people who had no idea to podcast what wait.
