Fresh update on "parliament" discussed on The Guilty Feminist

"But aside from those people, Deborah, drawn lucky in the ballot, there is scope for supplementary questions. By other members of parliament, so just to be clear, who's asking these questions and who is answering these questions? Overwhelmingly, people asking the questions are members of parliament, but they are not repeat not repeat not members of the government. And the people answering the questions are repeat are repeat are members of the government. The reason I underlined that is that it really speaks to the essence of parliamentary democracy, which is about the accountability of government of what we often call the executive branch of our political system to parliament to the legislature. And so you won't see members of government asking questions because they should be able to do that in the meetings they have. Yes, ministers have their own opportunity to raise matters of concern, for example, so their constituents, with their ministerial colleagues, either in private meetings or conversations or in correspondence, and actually that's true of the speaker as well. The speaker doesn't ask questions in the chamber of ministers, and people often used to say, misses speaker, how do you, given the speaker, represent your constituents? How can you ask questions given that you're not allowed to ask questions? I'd like to know that too. Because if I were in your constituency and you had to remain neutral the whole time, I'd be slightly annoyed. Yes, I totally get that Deborah and you would be amongst a very large number of people in the backing constituency by no means all personally hostile to me at all who did feel that way. My answer was and remains that I represented my constituents in correspondence with ministers and in meetings. With ministers and I remember remarking to my private secretary that I was very struck by the speed with which these ministers were applying and by their seniority and he said to me, there's no surprise about that, mister speaker. It's a mark of very considerable disgrace if a minister so hacks off the speaker that the speaker demands to see the minister to remonstrate. So I struck by this said, oh, I see. So if I were annoyed with Jack, I gave to see him administrative justice would I to complain. To which he instantly replied, no, mister speaker. In those circumstances, you don't go to the minister of justice to see mister secretary straw. Mister secretary straw comes to see you in speaker's house for a meeting with our coffee. Now that never happened, Deborah, that never happened to be fair. Absolute.

No matter what most of them are never going to care what you show them. But there is a grouping in the middle. They don't want you to see they want you to think it's only far left and far right and that's all that matters. There's a huge group of people that could be swayed with information that could find common ground like the lady in the mask to simply realize that we are already on the same page. This issue was raised by us is proven by the records of the parliament. Now it's affecting a lot of people a lot of our citizens now. The problem is that it's affecting all of us here and he's threatening the parliamentarian democracy of this house because we will be allowed to enter these hubs unless we have certificate. We will not be able to do our job here exactly along with us. It's our assistance and our staff names. I have to tell you that us and many others of us were contacted. Anonymously off the record i would say. But many of the staff members for deeply concern people that work for this house for decades. They have family. They have mortgages crediting bands and now they destroyed the sooner than later. if they don't have the green certificate they will be losing the job but they haven't done anything wrong. This is the this is the third situation. Many of them already went through these insane illness that killed so many people they have proved that they developed a naturally meaning and for some reason. Unknown reason illogical a non medically proven reason. They will be faced with losing their jobs. Sorry about that. i'm still here. I'm going to get a bunch of comments. No no no audio the point is you know why because you watch this show not because i said it and you just believe what i say but because i've shown you the science that backs it up the peer reviewed science from the places that they tell you to listen to that they were simultaneously. Show you the reality. They're ignoring this. Because there's obviously something there they don't want people to think about on top of that. I think truly truly. It's about transitioning this passport over to natural immunity as one of the options which drives everybody into the passport infrastructure. And then oh now it's about climate change to late. You're already in your already done. You already have it already. Have your passport your phone.

Shake, Rattle the Roles: Britains Cabinet Reshuffle

"Britain's prime minister starts today with a very different cabinet than he had yesterday on. Peculiarity of british politics is the cabinet reshuffle. A sudden reordering of who's in charge of what in the government this one was. Well telegraphed and members of parliament had been pressing. Boris johnson on. Who shouldn't be in charge of much with all the talk of cabinet. Reshuffle can the prime minister guarantee that the foreign secretary will finally be sucked that any shuffled or does he intend to the world and competence reshuffles serve many purposes rewarding loyalty punishing perceived foolishness and setting or resetting a political agenda but they're messy and embarrassingly public ministers shuffled past the cameras outside downing street toward their new fates expecting a promotion. Knew it might not seem like a great time for such disruption with the country focused on what the pandemic will bring next and on britain's role in the crumbling of afghanistan but the prime minister has plenty of other business still to attend to and now a new team to tackle. It was expected that. Boris johnson would hold reshuffle. He has space to do so. Now and macelroy is a senior editor at the economist. Britain's coming out of the pandemic enough to do something like that. that wouldn't look like distraction. He won a tight vote on tax raising last week to fund the nhs and social care so he feels that he sweeps all before him. And this is the time to clear out some deadwood and makes them promotions.

Then what was your. What's your memories of that time. How do you prepare a new leader of the opposition response to such an extraordinary event in some respects and was quite well prepared himself because he'd been shuttered event secretary before becoming leader and he was. He had good contacts with the american administration. The bush administration and in fact probably much better context. The boss majority of government. Mp's labor government ten peas and he had A very clear view. The americans are thinking and was very confident that we could support the prime minister. If the prime minister gave his support to the americans there were labor. Mp's will be very windy by this and You would be surprised. How quickly iraq. And into the conversation. I mean within days because the Iraq was unresolved problem rogue state developing weapons of mass destruction. And something they we were. We had to reassess every kind of threat and iraq was perceived a right wrongly as a much greater threat off. I let it had been beforehand and The a course. Two years later it led to the invasion of iraq But i the atmosphere. I mean everyone was in a complete state of shock. I remember the day it happened. I was having lunch and my friend went. Somebody said In my office. I think better come back to the office. There's something gay all you need. Snap is I went back to my office and Initially picked up the soda twin tower one of the towers on fire. There's just picking up the phone and during in because it wasn't actually leader at that point. The leadership was going to be pulling day. I'm watched the second hour. Go into the second I got hold of it. And then i said. Do you know what's going on. And he said yes and you'll be shuttered defense secretary So it was very helpful. Lever I'm good an enormous of mind to read and it became very evident very quickly what we should have known This event was predicted unpredictable in many respects By people who had not had sufficient exposure to decision because And we had a lot of private meetings with the uk intelligence services minister defense foreign office and that sort of fan. it very quickly became. I mean the one thing. That this really underlined brilliant Security services are an how well world advised the prime minister and the leader the position. Safe quick to there was so quickly on top of it. They knew that this was al-qaeda almost from the get go and They knew that Al qaeda was based in afghanistan and it became it was surprising. Actually how long it took the full any military action to be taken. And i think there's also reflected the fact that Actually the united states didn't sort of lash out and the way that Clinton had al qaeda bombing basis in deserts. There was no reaction of that sort. It was a much more considered strategic reaction. My goodness through mistakes in that reaction In spent quite a bit of time trying to persuade the prime minister that we shouldn't. I've stayed the taliban from From from from from afghanistan. We should be looking for moderate taliban moderate push to Who would murder omar regime because For students with the majority in afghanistan that would never be a credible government in afghanistan if it didn't include the pushtoon which means which meant including the taliban and we need to recognize that the town of something different from al-qaeda but there was complete blindness about blasio and Conversation feels very very familiar. Now as as well. I've just wanted to see talking that but at the extraordinary circumstances to become a leader of a political become a leader of the opposition in the middle of what is clearly an enormous global political diplomatic Security crisis whether it's a parallel a bit to what keven has been through the past eighteen months and how as a leader of the opposition politics and how you impact when frankly nobody cares what the leader the opposition's saying all doing to a large extent because this hugh single huge thing is dominating so much dude sort of the fight was sealed a bit of dhaka smith's leadership just because he nobody ever.

The house tom. Denial and the labor impe paul marston. Voicing some The need for caution. Well it's now. Speak to philip webster. There's glitz of the times was in the press corps. That day i feel the thing that really struck me revisiting. The whole debate was the the sense of it was very somber. It was very serious really quite often. You buy expensive solving rhetoric adam shapiro. We knew the words to sort summit up. No i think the the shock that disbelief the anger the fair in the nation. Generally at this time just three days afterwards towards was well mirrored in the commons died Calm measured generally united that undercurrent of concern about what bringing people to account actually meant and it was little dive in most people's mind. When tony blair said that the people who have terrorist have a choice they give them up or they become the enemy i think even by that stage people were beginning to realize that man. He didn't use the word war at that time. Al qaeda hadn't been formally identified as they as the culprits. But i think everyone was moving to a situation with a new some very big decisions. Were coming up fairly soon on a did but overall i think it was one of those occasions where sometimes we'd rather pass say the the house of commons was at its best and this was one of those occasions also this and also we saw a couple of weeks ago but i forget when the house was we called invasive circus to talk about afghanistan. What is the point in. Because you're the people sort of came together. The speech very heartfelt. Listen to in sort of samba silence. But nothing really happened. What why is it so important. These moments are classes for the house of commons to come together because i don't sort of voting on making a decision but why do you think it's important. I think it's important. In this particular context. The main purpose coming together was to express solidarity with the united states and the thousand two lost that lives and Mp's have a feeling than that. They've they've got to do something even there's nothing they could do. The only way they could express the horror outrage support for the people of american close to the families of the british people who died in the twin towers was to have a special session of the house of commons. They called a debate started at nine thirty in the morning friday and they called a three minute silence and eleven o'clock and that was i think that way of identifying them with the horror fell generally outside and across the world. And just paint a picture of your your experience. Where were you when a non eleven happened and what happens. Then in terms of the politics of coach at the times because of what's going on inside number ten what was going through. Tony baz mind cause it ended up being probably the single biggest incident which which had such an incredible impact on his own climate ship. And even how today will you as you could say. It was the edged. The was the beginning of the end of his apprenticeship because from Afghanistan floaty rock and from iraq flowed the the end of a player's premature. It took some time but blair that point was shit was determined to show from the very start. His place nece to American this send in as i say he didn't use the word or geoff hoon defense sector. The end said that was already considering. How would help any military action that the united states took now blair news at his role would be to Donna support around the world for any military action. that The united states took and my editor at the time just decided that i should stick with blair through that following periods so i went off with bladder following week to new york where he did the judge service in manhattan to remember the the british people who died either. We then flew on that evening to washington with george. Bush made a speech in which he i referred to the war on terror. And that by that time we do ready. What was going to happen. I was with when he went to visit. British troops. Just a month later in amman. At nobody said they were preparing to go to afghanistan. But of course we will do. They were just wasn't officially acknowledged that they were and i was with blair again in january two thousand and two shortly after the taliban had abby defeated to be more accurate had run to the hills as we now know i was with blair went in under the cover of darkness. We flew into afghanistan and hercules plane. Midnight that time and landed at by gram f failed and it was. It was an amazing time to be with him. I think he covered about forty five thousand miles in a couple of two three weeks going round the world a building support for the calculation. I remember one occasion. We landed back from. India a t. Throw one saturday evening and we all have to be back at heathrow. The next morning quite early on to fly to russia and then on down to cape town so it was a fairly mad fine. He was getting ryan trying to pick up support absolutely everywhere and that was seen as he saw that as his role at the time he was later to paper. I and just personally from your perspective. How did you feel even getting on a plane. So soon after What happened in in in america you. We had a lot of scary times actually as political correspondents did there were occasions when we did things that we would never rent doing as as civilians you like. It was a scary time. It was certainly a scary time. When we flew off from islamabad that evening at two to kabul and the not the taliban had fled but they were firing at anything that was up in the up in the sky at that time and the lights were out in our hercules. We you couldn't even see the guy sitting next to you But the missiles were flying up from everywhere. We were just praying among ourselves that there was a defense system up there to help us get check where we were getting. It was scary but it was a job that had to be done and looking back on it. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. It deserves a job you had to do as a reporter to ripple these things going on and the politicians all set for themselves in in the line of fire as well at that time so it's w. speech as thank..

Do you know your way around. Enough is a new mpg. What it's been quite difficult. Because he had like twelve weeks and then locked down have been down quite a bit. And but yeah like committees have been sitting in these rooms. So i was on the public accounts can see and yet never been in any of these rooms really so yeah not much at all what about you how. How many times have you managed to make. Its pilot as possible. And really since the end of the lockdown in march april. I've been down every day. Was i believe politicians should be in parliament and should be doing the job. We would like to do what is it. About what difference does it make about being in the chamber. Alex against Being all doom to ask you administer the makes us different ways of doing these most important difference for me is the whole purpose of debates debates not meant to be prepared without speeches and zoom you currently. Mp's as the house. There's no pointing blame anti-politics just reading pre pet speech And that's it just keeps on social media you probably discussion you intervene. You can't challenge point. And we see that she lacked any dynamism and it's also challenge the executive So i think having that ability to interject not she holds a ministers hold speakers to account is voiced otherwise franken food send a copy of speech handsaw bala reading over the facts. What about you. What do you import about. Everyone being here. I mean i think he does make a difference. I think has been good to be able to keep parliament going in everyone who might not be able to attend parliament to be involved during this period but yeah i think it's obviously nice to be able to intervene on speeches and kind of be in the chamber and head hit the debate. Much more lively. We saw on the day that we came back. Yeah it is definitely a lot more. What about getting to know your colleagues in the labor party although didn't make huge pokharel overall Quite a lot of new faces. Are you a ganging labor. Two thousand nine hundred and thank please done on. What's up is absolutely them by. So it's been really nice to get to know like the one thousand nine hundred nine intake call ourselves but yeah it's been really nice and kind of i think we've all been through the same experience and it's really kind of bonded together in a way. I don't know the intakes plan at all of you and i'm sure we'll see we'll get something. What about you alex. Because obviously a whole load of new till in twenty nine and eight scott across the country and actually in parts of the country where the toys haven't haven't been before a how many different groups are in for twenty nine red bull. Is y'all gloves all different groups next to all different Policy issues wings. The policies different Intake so even go children all get the parliamentary nursery. I mean there's so many different which the most annoying which is people always posting. It always always a wall about the backbench ones that good average having goodson complain about everything under the sun. So that's always good. Phone wants to watch but we will end up in the newspaper anyway so they do exactly what what was he. One of the things. They're complaining about most. It seems now is the idea of putting up national insurance to pay for social care. Where were you on on this issue. Would you support that. If that's what they bring forward of one percent visor national to fund social well. Let's a conservative network subs. We shouldn't be raising taxes. Willy nilly thing. We wanted to be doing but we wanted to do that. See a proud become just raise tax without a plan to make fundamental changes and make things better. My concern is if they just Our next one percents But no actual fundamental ways to make a special pacific division better. It's a bits of bit pointless. What we need is a new plan of how we provide this. Okay and then see. How much is the cost of how much we're going to need to to get from. The public works that way become just raise it without having a new way of providing care and thinking about fisher cats. I was telling to ask you about the labor party Giving everything that's happened over the summer whether it's exams afghanistan rows over social care across the board beco- number of migrants crossing the channel on almost every policy area. The government seems to be in trouble and they're still outpolling the labor party and in the podium just just discussing with him he's african Polling worse is minus twenty three pashtuns minus nineteen. Are you worried that the public made up their mind about star or reggie and he's not having an impact has been incredibly difficult to become leader of any party. Anything not being in the chamber as much not having the opportunity to have conference last year has really made it quite difficult. So i'm really looking forward to labor party conference and seeing the leader out his plans where we're gonna go and i think that that will be attending point. I think more people will get to know the real key. Dahmer and see see what policies will take us. One of the advantages of being back in westminster is. I can call you in the coffee shop cuba. You can also call the case talbott maybe the voting lobbies or whatever ahead of that particle was. What's your one bit of advice for. What would you like to see them do. Oh i just think we're looking for what we need to be really ambitious and you know. I'm shot administered for nature's obviously love to see some around fifteen and twenty six. What labor's plans are for the environment really good Alex if you managed to call it. The prime minister in the voting lobbies. What are you. What's what's top of your list of things.

"Because then you have to do all the heavy lifting himself talking of no. Let's let's turn to some of the other cabinet ministers donate bob dominated over the summer. Actually i would be. I'll be honest having the chart. Dominic wallabies now down to minus thirteen. Sound great which is pretty bad but was already pretty wasn't hugely popular. Before i was a bit worse. Yeah i mean. I wonder whether some of the sort of stuff to do with dominic. Grabs holiday is one of those of slightly westminster versions Where westminster focuses on particular element of a story. Whereas i think what a lot of voters will be paying attention to more so Is what the disaster some folding and novel. The you know the questions about britain's long military involvement there whether it was worth as but i still don't think is good. The man is deeply unpopular including with conservative voters whereas in that negative eight points and so in the context of the reshuffle. I mean the the big reshuffles are ones wet. A a senior minister gets moved. Well that's the point. There's no point as perhaps you could argue dhamma discovered. There's no points embarking on risha unless you're going to make big changes that people are going to notice if you're in government that means changing one of the big jobs is going not going to move. She soon at the other two jobs. All fallen and home show and dominic robb is arguably based on the headlines. You'd say put himself the prime spot removed pitch patel actually polls even worse yes pretty. Priscilla has a negative rating of forty seven points. And she's even more popular re conservative voters than dominic robb. I mean that's quite interesting thing. I mean potatoes often talked about this activists favorite conservative activists favor and this reminded the conservative. Voters are obviously a much larger number than the incredibly poultry membership of the conservative party. Famously loss do one of those accepted wisdom's or she pulls very well that people saying that two three years ago yes. They might various reasons why. She's generally unpopular with voters. But no i mean Well you mentioned. Boris johnson's woman. He might be equivalent popular unpopular with men as with women polling wise. There is a problem with the number of women in the cabinet which is low. Now i think that it was in two thousand and six tony. Blair's lost cabinet So you don't think it'd be a look necessarily to move a woman from the state unless he was exactly the just funny had on this and the other thing that left to me was pulled ben wallace who has put in a shift over the summer. People like you. And i may have said he'd had a better war if you like you know he terms and empathetic reaction to what was i going afghanistan. More so than dominic robb. Nobody knows who he is. I mean you know you could look at it and say as a net negative of eight points. The the reality is that only twenty eight percent of people view to people. Do look if you're in. Boris johnson's cabinet and people. Don't viscerally loath you. That seems to be success. So unless you're she say ben. Wallace will be will be staying weary as i'm sure that's that's the case Why you're talking through the public. Think of the cabinet. As when bowie's johnson embarks on risha for whether it's this week or not he'll be looking at exactly this party and like i said if you want to see the chart that we've just been discussing tweeted app naturally now in a moment we're going to hear from two twenty three twenty nine hundred nineteen mp so we elected two years ago only had a few weeks in the house of parliament and then immediately dispatched their constituencies. For the first several lock tests will speak to them in just but first we'll speak will hit. Let's hear from an smp mp impeach him scotland is. I've always traveling on a monday morning. So before he set off. I spoke to stephen. Flynn he was the smp mp for aberdeen south in nine thousand nine. I asked him just how many times he'd actually set foot in the house apartment since the election. I've probably said food. Macaulay totta thank god. I drew quite really quite quickly of the virtual students. and it's. it's not too difficult to get from our london with a direct flight. So i went done quite a few side wants. We're able to travel restrictions lifted and it's a new way be wideness outweigh expected to be a for. That's for certain ahead. So yeah it's been Eighteen months two years attempt to travel at amongst Wise do you expect to be sort of. You'd be focusing on in the new in the new tab. Yeah i think that's a really important question that couvert recovery's going to be the fundamental point obviously called translates autumn statement coming up to see what he's going to be Prospective i want to see lots of money. Thrown at the energy transition harbored in the north east of scotland the at the forefront of Guy away or the fact. He's intended on cotton universal cates hoping you're versus stansell not that moving forward as scott nationalist. I want this situation where not cover to cover. Eight is one that sunday looking for the scottish government. So i'm looking for a second independence referendum to be a great two in the not too distant future and hopefully we can get competing for for me to be traveling to westminster even less. What was going to ask you whether it's just not weighed situation. You've got the you've got a job where you basically you are one of those turkeys. Who want to vote for christmas. You want to put out of your job. You wanna be going to westminster. You almost don't want westminster to work particularly well. It sort of E- a dysfunction of westminster which treats scotland Scott good for you to your arguments. So we'd touch it of doing your job properly helping your constituents that while also proving that westminster isn't serving scotland's. You have to sort of you. A bit of schizophrenia. I what you'd be yet. I'm quite happy to be the last evo. Mp independents. Absolutely yeah it's it's but contempt not place uc everytime heckle aleve. They've gotten one testing and talk Whether to do a job which is to talk with. Scotland's talk talk about what scotland achieve anti weekend before the town vision and we have the platform to do that. And it's important to engage on that basis. And that's that's what to do and that's why i've tried to do everyday i've been down there. Obviously moving forward. I'll continue to do that up. Just finally the the big question is if when there's gonna be a a second independence with when do you think will be. Do you want it next year year. After the scottish government would obviously the new agreement with us a with being quite clear that hopefully it will be the first half of the new scorch parliamentary term. It starts said no long after the election so that Ambition but we need to obviously be nice. The situation relation to couvet. I think anyone who touched dependent in this moment as as perhaps doing something that they have no control over so yet. Naima says certainly next eighteen months two years. I think all scores nationalists would hope and hope we get to that point and as i said earlier renew long enough to westminster stop at the one thing about the house upon them. You'd make longer the patron seth that mess with discuss a tough question. You know what. I actually quite like the back and forward the chamber. I came from a a very robust local authority. Hosa coleman's is just almost like a bigger version of so quite a quite like the two of it does anyone any fevers. To be honest said the back-and-forth with politicians by passing like Quite like elbow. It's going with those involved is less those watching. I think. Probably the probably the steven flynn the.

Plus only the good stuff. You're listening to the white box focused. Now let's dig into some exclusive polity with him now henry because the new intake of mp's about that not that new but they haven't had very many weeks here with you thought we look at the cabinet because amongst all the other things that he's talking about in their various what's up groups. He's just of a reshuffle. How likely is that g. Think it's hard to tell lots of people. Do think it's very serious. And there's been enough days of remember there's going to be a reshuffle. Downing street has had enough of an opportunity to scotch the rumors. If it's definitely not happening on the other hand is a useful thing for them to have out there because they are big things coming this week. Controversial things coming this week as you've been discussing in the era of this show so far and you know nothing will make a cabinet minister. Supress their concerns about what i johnson is planning to do social care like the threat of emotional the prospects of promotion so it may be real but whether it's real or not is very useful for danny streets. Have out there hanging over ministers okay. Let's talk about some of them. Then we've got some exclusive poland from you of where they have asked people instead of how they would votes because actually i think the latest yougov poll toys four five point in terms of what they think of the politicians themselves. Let's start with voice. Johnson first of all do voters have a favorable unfavorable view of ocean overruled. They have an unfavorable view. So thirty six percent of respondents to the survey said they had a favorable opinion of boris johnson. Fifty five percent Said they had an unfavorable opinions. And that's a negative net negative of nineteen points. So that sounds quite bad right. This is boris. Johnson is the prime minister landslide. Two years ago shortly his opinion rating should be higher than that. Well yes and no. If you look at the cross breaks of the polling so if you look at the what twenty nine teen voters think. Boris johnson the people who gave him this huge majority pictures quite rosy for him. He's got an positive rating of forty one points So it doesn't matter. That people voted labour and lipton In two thousand nineteen still hate him. They hated him in two thousand nine won a huge majority. And so you know while they're a little bit to be concerned over in twenty eight percent of twenty nine thousand votes. Just having an unfavorable opinion of him i think we knew. Twenty nineteen that. Were plenty of sort of tories holding that nose and voting for trump's and for whatever reason perhaps because they were a remain as you know didn't journey to be prime minister or something like that so actually it's amazing that the old leave remain a bike cross. Bike still is still that twenty percent of a miner's fable tools boss johnson fifty eight percent of leave us. Yeah well they're actually. Even that percentage of remain i think is not bath. Scrape lounge michael go. Basically every person who voted remaining twenty twenty-six spa so to many conservatives labor and lived in voter so it's not necessarily of you of michael go confined to that column on the spreadsheet. Well let's let's pick through some of those. I should be just one thing that we will ask me is always know gender split. If various times there was sort of think pay pieces written about how boris johnson has a woman problem and actually in terms of favorable and unfavorable. It's almost exactly the same minimum. I mean the main thing that. Let me about this spreadsheet at boris johnson. Whichever cross break you want to look at is that he's very popular. And it does fail sometimes particularly in this place although not necessarily if you go out to various parts of the country that voted you do have to remind both people you speak to and yourself. But boris johnson is the preeminent electro politician of our age. If our age comes after tony blair. Boris johnson should not be surprised at this point and he won a huge majority in. Twenty thousand hundred. I'm pretty sure that we would not have left the european union if he hadn't endorsed and campaigned for leave. He wanted to london. Mary elections in city which had previously not just voted labour but voted independent four. Ken livingston the man is very good. Politics should not be as fries to us. People like him. I mean all this discussion of the missteps good counterpoint. To twitter and i have a talked about twitter have tweeted. The chart that we're talking about you can see who's up and who's down amongst senior politicians. The only person polling better than Voice johnson is wishy soon the chancellor. He's got a positive rating. Yes and positive Yeah net pulse. Eight. that is quite right. I think he's the only person who was polled. He does have a positive rating forty. Four percent of people say they have a favorable opinion. Thirty six said they have a negative among twenty nine hundred. Conservative voters ratings at even higher than boris johnson. Plus fifty one to johnson's plus forty one among twenty nine hundred labour voters. he's much less unpopular. Boris johnson has negative of eighty-one amongst twenty nine hundred voters soon. Not just a net negative of twenty nine so again not very surprising. We know that russia soon became very popular particularly around the time the furlough scheme being announced but also because he was the first minister to appear in one of those early daily press conference to show a bit of carbon empathy and actually speak vaguely humanly about the disaster which was engulfing so many people's lives. But you know if you wanna feed this into a question of okay well. Why don't conservative impeach. Just dump richie soon. Four dump. boris johnson. I assume neck seems even more popular. While i do think if you speak to consecutive. Mp's the man is still just a year a half into being chancellor he has so far only to make fairly popular. Decisions will be in a very crisis dominated time and i think the next week the questions over social care in the tax to pay for and the months that follow will give us a much better. Sense of richie. Soon ex metal in terms of the internal debate and government policy debates political questions but also in terms of whether the public is going to continue to see him as a sort of a better version of forest especially interesting i mean seeing everything through the prism of lawyer we between the two men. The there is a issue is sort of ying and yang to complement each other. If if she soon is reaching into labor people who voted labour. In twenty nine hundred. And he's winning them over and charming them wall boys johnson's holding onto people voted conservative in thousand nineteen. That's a pretty formidable political machine. Yeah i mean ultimately if you don't see ya there's no reason we have to say i mean they are disagreeing on some things at the moment ultimately is good for the prime minister. If he's johnston popular yes certainly better for the prime minister. That is being dramatically unpopular. All completely unknown..

"Fisher voice over that what next. It's our prime minister of the week. Yes it's three hundred years whitten. I pawn minister and every week. We are looking at one of the main detail without the historian and author. Andrew jackson are delighted. Andrew joins me live in the house department morning. Absolutely wonderful to be here just around the corner from great corridor. The committee corridor full of splendid portrait of prime ministers. Now i'm although you have to check it in tie on your wearing chino's the cupboard speak much notes. Let's see you doing that. But so who is this week's prime minister. This week's prime minister asquith. Who was prime minister from. Nineteen eight to nine hundred sixteen tremendous olympian intellect spotted. Glad soon as he came into the house of parliament first. Ministerial office was the home office. He was the inevitable accessible and campbell. Element died in one thousand nine hundred eight. Everyone he had to go off to the ritz actually to see the king. Georgia seven through was invigorates. And then he started making his cabinet and he had to. Figures would emerge really titanic figures of the twentieth century had george in his cabinet and also winston churchill into the cabinet in one thousand nine eight so he he wasn't a fight to have big beasts but he was above them as long as peace lasted he was the olympia and figure people said judge. She listened and then he decided he guide to conversation. He wouldn't say very much himself but he was these. The first one was such a horror that one somehow forget that before the war we. This country almost had a civil war over over home rule for ireland which ask pushing through an ulster gained to fight and things have got very desperate by the hour of nine hundred fourteen. Asquith was writing lessons during cabinet meetings to his young woman. Who've besotted with called venetia stanley he wrote a six hundred letters in three years and he assured her towards the end of july nineteen fourteen. Wasn't we weren't going to be involved in the war. Luckily we would just be spectators of this thing. And on the fourth of august we were into the war. I mean not. Predicting fall of kabul. Is these things. John watch through belgium. Belgium he has a habit of himself. A that says what sort of character wasi well people said he's critic said that he just drifted and that he was he was too fond of drink and concluding even at the dispatch box. I'm afraid he was sometimes the worst drink. The dispatch proxy with ever exposed at the time. Churchill right to his wife saying that had terrible terrible. The prime minister could not speak last night. It was deeply embarrassments somehow. The was what church will of freemasonry. Now's your comments in those days. And of course no pictures of all recordings at tool. So that's the thing is the is the these days we let you down the corridor. When is the commission with his friends is cameras everywhere. Yes voice persson. All of his faults could not certain up in the house. A couple of john kennedy not be spotted it will be sorted and when we're in re smokes reclined on a bench. Even that was by my by the pro z. Modern standards to be getting a bit. Yes or at least he was cheetos. Ease the because. I was struck looking at asquith records. Noise nice sixty actually compared to the way were chopping through them. It's a decent chunk of eight years. Yes divided by the first world war and he. He was popular when the war broke out. But then the war became more and more awful. People didn't want this sort of detached man readership and he had to form a coalition with conservatives in one thousand nine hundred defuse criticism and then the conservative boehner law was was off to france for important meetings in france and he had to see the prime minister first on the monday morning and the prime minister said could visit me at my country house on the tens abingdon and so lawyers landing boy. You went to abington you. Shed into the prime minister. The prime minister was playing bridge with three young women. Canadian presbyterian by origin. He wasn't didn't think that was funny. so he was kind of frivolously about asquith as well as the ability to transact business and eventually some have people realize they needed lloyd george to be running the war effort. Not asquith. ask. You wouldn't so under lloyd george. He went out liberals split georgia's last liberal prime minister so in fact he came in as dominant figure and left the party. All no one realized it was shattered irrevocably and it's not because the wall changed everything that what people wanted from politicians changed. Yes they won't they needed to worry on. The of course the shortage shells and lloyd george dealt with that and then the somehow they knew the people round ask with i think new as well i mean but he was a tragic. I mean that's so many people his his brilliant eldest son. Raymond asquith killed on the western front. So it was a very hard thing for for him but he had this curious insistence on relaxing so he just the and read a novel a couple of but particularly bridge and drink and holding holding young women's hands. We couldn't imagine these days alphabet is suspected the playing cards with three young women. And how are you finding as show here because you're sort of based here department. How been you've been wandering around with a lot of people around. How was your office my office. My chair be nicked. There are lots of no one else in the room. So i couldn't investigation into nick. Yes i borrowed somebody else's show but it's all a bit quiet but it is really important to get parliament. I think the chain full as for the afghan debate that is much than even if even if the opposition these coming mainly from within the conservative party which they had the people have often does also. It's a big tax was big test of don't we also big test of johnson has had to face the cut and thrust of the commons chamber given the he will not lance election victory. Everyone's very happy with him. We were quite quickly into kofi then lockdowns and we haven't had that hasn't been truly tested at the dispatch box. All with all with the voting obvious he hasn't he wasn't good in parliament as a backbencher because he wouldn't he wouldn't diverge enough time to it he's been better at the dispatch box but it will he will be properly tested and you'll be able to see whether his own troops behind on. That's that's and if people start shaking their heads as they all just go quiet to ease of eight. As one of her death stern shooting lasers across cost to cope job it.

"It all fell apart. What do you make of the labor. Labor opposed this. Well i think festival you're right has been incredibly quiet. Some of labor in the latest opinion poll shows that still five points behind the conservatives in the polls kissed almost come out and said that labour weren't support insurance rise to fund The long-term overhaul of social care. He hasn't set out alternative though. There's a lot of pressure on him from Andy burnham king of north to To look instead to a wealth tax taxing wealth instead of work. I think labor really need to come forward and put their own stamp and policy proposals out kiss. Thomas had in this merit interview that he wants to wait until the next manifesto is drawn up several years hence when this policy might even be implemented. I think he was not important is because it's not it's not clear. What what the alternatives are you know. I think income taxes serious alternative. It's one of the big leave as like national insurance like the some of the talking labor circles about for example raising capital gains tax. It's not clear that would raise Enough money. I think another area where we haven't heard labor really speaking a lot about yet. But i think is going to become a big issue of contention in all this is that this is a levy. That's not just going to fund social careful. It's also supposed to be the extra money that the nhs needs. We need to see. Exactly what what. The governments can set out in terms of national insurance rises. How much it will raise but a lot of the talk has been. It'll be about ten billion pounds year. Will that alone as well. Nhs leaders say that health service needs. There's nothing left for social care. And i think that's why we've seen this really down to the wire wrangling between the prime minister and the chancellor over the weekend because we she see his desperate to make clear that if he agrees to a big tax rise now that this isn't just going to be the thin under the wedge and he's going to have to put it up you know next year or the air after to To deal with all sorts of things like the nhs waiting list extra costs for pb hospital clean and the fallout from the from the candidate pandemic. But it's talk about what she's soon after because he's call lots of E- spreadsheet to add up is going to be a big challenge over the coming weeks. And i've i've mentioned this on the show before i remember speaking to someone. The treasury you said is how many how which has been taken hostage by treasury orthodoxy. And they said it's not treasury orthodoxy. It's maths and the watch you spend should in theory match. What your basic you. Can't purposely go a boeing alongside this about social kevin. How's it going to make the money for that. There's a big row coming. Wednesday labor go to force a vote on the taking the twenty pounds universal credit uplift away. Let's kick in next month. They can politics is a really tough because these are the families. Low income working families who voiced also will involved with marcus rash coming out of universal tax credit card. I think this is really interesting. Dynamic here politically so. There is oversee tension between the treasury and number ten in between richie. Suna combines johnson. You only have to look at them to see the difference in temperament and attitude and politics race. Not very control disciplined very thin. I don't let it all hang out. I think that for me what's most interesting says. Also a sort of internal conflict within the tory coalition so those sort of traditional shire tores who want their taxes low their state controlled and then there's sort of new red wool conservatives who many of whom probably on universal credit depends on the public services. And that's kind of really fundamental disagreement about size of the stage how taxes should be raised the tax should be on welfare or work and so in a way that's an internal conflict within the tory coalition and therefore within the prime minister himself as well as between boris johnson. Sooner sort of this this this is what happens when cake is them comes up against reality. The seeds actually have most of what we're going to see over. The next few weeks was two years ago in the what up to that election campaign and if you have a manifesto promises we will fix social care and we won't put up tax. That doesn't work. no that's right. And i think we just have to look at the whole list of spending demands to the beleaguering. The treasury. the green agenda is another massive theme this autumn in the run-up to the cop twenty six climate summit in glasgow in all sorts of spending needed there around infrastructure for electric vehicles to subsidize the switch from gas boilers to greener alternatives. Then you get to the education catcher which now you never felt right. Show the buck logging courts the two-billion-pound funding for the railways. And of course there's leveling up. You know the agenda. The prime minister considers this legacy defining dimension of his premiership. That really needs to be kind of filled in with all sorts of infrastructure investment so and afghanistan afghanistan of course and and and and the cost for resettling thousands of afghan refugees who are now arriving in the country. So it's hard to see how We should say not get that maps to square up. Have to say if he does. What would you expect to walk around this morning. How how normal does it never feels. That feels feels bit. Hawks wars hogwash. How normal does it feel. Wait till i haven't touched. She had a complete wander around but he's looking very smart ones. I've seen what about you to say. Yeah good. I had to wait a whole three minutes in the queue for coffee this morning. Got pch poll also. Yes is is feeling busy. i'm. I'm desperately glad that everyone's coming back.

We take some exclusive yougov poland into what the public think of the cabinet post johnson. Kiss dr patel and yes dominic. Robb office holidays. Henry's f pick that but also speak. Mp's who elected twenty nineteen and only had a few weeks in palm before the pandemic. Hey what do they want to get out of the coming weeks. We've also gonna bring you on a monday our pm of the week. Andrew jackson the author being counting down all fifty five ministers since the beginning of the year. And we started the so-called starts bringing on the podcast coming up today we've got with the. I is our columnist panel today. Silvester join me in person. Along with lucy fisher from the telegraph. The so much we can talk about this way. This focus on social because it's the big issue of the week. It seems Rachel and boys. Johnson seems just we supposed to powerful wants. Oem couple of minutes ago. He says i would vote for national shorts voice paper social care but only if it kicked it forty thousand dollars and i suspect we're going to get three hundred different ideas every year. I will vote for boat if you just do this week. Like that and the problem is they've decided on this. National insurance rises. It seems really based on politics rather than the policies so they thought. Tony blair gordon brown. Got away with this panel insurance for the. Nhs will do the same. Nobody will notice but at she is quite bad policy because pensioners working pensioners. Don't pay nash insurance. Lots of things aren't covered by rental income dividends etc so that she much fairer way would be to basic rise on income tax across the board for everyone. So everyone's going to have something they don't like the truth is we. Do all have to contribute. It's not something that only pensioners should pay. Because we're all going to need social care at some point or we might need it so the key thing is you've got to spread the risk between as many people as possible so it's sort of like a massive insurance game and everyone pays the least possible amount but but tori. Mp anyone pay anything and the big issue lucie is that we haven't really heard very much about what we could to get for these extra tax. This is a big row about putting the national insurance. But not really paul promotional saying we are going to fix social care or the two years ago. What does what does that mean well. I think it's a really good point to make about the sequencing of of all this that the row over the funding for the reform has come ahead of any any policy details being outlined. and we. I think that's a mistake. Because in actual fact you have real consensus about the fact that social care reform is long overdue and that this is ethel that needs to be grasped immediately so i think that was sort of starting point of consensus that the government could have run from set out. The plans gained a degree of support over that johnson pitch rolling and then talked about the money of it. So i find that a little bit bizarre but certainly now a slightly disagree you originals. I think that all tories disagree with There needs to be tax rates for pay for this. I think they're all some marcus fish meter chairman of the economic growth group of conservative. Mp's people like him Very much on the right of the party economically speaking. I do think you're right. are object in principle to any kind of tax rise and breaking the manifestation tax log. But i think there is There is a spectrum of opinion and others are more open to it. But i think as you as you said. Rachel want to see it done in what they consider fairway particularly when it comes to the generation. Adamant this is going to be a policy that benefits older people. It shouldn't fall on the shoulders of the working age At working age population including those on the wages. It's this real sort of cupful full the whole while they decided. What do we want social look like. How much is that going to cost. And then how are we going to wait. I'm going to seems like they've been an argument about one percent in two percent possibly landed on one percent and then presumably going to raise that amount. How thinly can we spread that so we could end up in a situation where we don't fix social care after all the irony as well as the plan has been there really for more than ten years after do not published it even before he publishes report the sort of consensus building around this idea of a cap on care costs. There's also pretty much consensus now across the board about the need to improve wages and make sure there's enough workers coming into the system to deal with the aging population. So actually the the system reform. There is quite wide agreement on what needs to happen but the strange thing is boris. Johnson claimed he had a plan ready to go. You know two years ago didn't then say well. That plan was and now as into this concept for me to cast aspersions on the problem is i think it's fair to say the two years ago he did not have a plan characteristically. He may not be entirely the case. What about the politics of this lucy. Here's tom has given an interview to the mirror. He's had a quiet summer. I think it's fair to say and so he's trying to sort of come back hitting the ground running. Speak to the daily mirror this or the in house. Paper of the labor party and he's ruling out labour-backing increase in national insurance. So again we sort of we whisked turning this sort of massive political vow and therefore mp's in seats where labor or close behind those mp's might stop body. So is it a solving somebody. The in theory everyone agrees on you know we had it before when the cost party talks and then touch the death tax..

"Start. Yeah it is technically true. You can't resign from the house of commons. This dates back almost four hundred years when serving in parliament. It was a very different experience than it is today members of parliament or mp's didn't even get paid until nineteen eleven up until then. It was a completely unpaid position. Travelling to london back then was a time consuming affair especially for. Mp's who lived in distant districts even though parliament for a few weeks a year the time of the session plus travel. Time was time you can spend to your personal affairs which meant that many. Mp's lost money. Most mp's considered serving in parliament and arduous task and not an honor so when the session of parliament came around every year many members would just resign rather than make the trip especially considering that many were elected against their will. It became such a problem. That parliament passed a law in sixteen twenty four which prevented members from resigning. The law specified that quote that a man after he is duly chosen cannot relinquish his position that law from sixteen twenty four is still on the books and it is still against the law for anyone to resign from the house of commons. The thing is mp seemingly resigned from parliament every session while it doesn't happen every week. It also isn't a totally unheard of event in fact when prime ministers have to step down they will often vacate their seat in parliament as well rather than stay on and disgrace. So how do they do it. How can you resolve resigning. When it's against the law to resign. Parliament had other concerns as well beyond making sure it's member showed up. One of those concerns was being an independent check on the monarchy. The house of commons is the house of commons. If one of its members was in the pocket of king it would put them in a conflict of interest so in sixteen eighty parliament passed a law which stated that any. Mp who's shell accept any office or place of profit from the crown without leave of this house shelby expelled from this house. So basically if the king or queen appoints an mp to an office the mp would automatically be expelled from parliament it turns out that this law made for an exceptionally nice loophole to get around the previous law stating that. Mp's can't resigned from parliament. They might not be able to resign but they can get kicked out in seventeen forty one sitting member of parliament sir watkins williams win was appointed as the steward of the lordship and manor of bromfield and yale parliament determined that this position fell under the sixteen eighty law and that sir williams win was expelled from parliament..

So i'm used to snow and sleet and everything but out here. I mean honestly cold night is if it even dips below freezing for an hour. Most of the time. It's like forty to sixty daytime temperatures. There it just rains a little bit. Sounds about like what we've been had. We've had a couple of cold snaps shorter but for what are we. Were uh oh. We're thirty eight degrees right now. Why are we.

It feels like a style that when it's done well it's awesome and certainly a few places do a great job but it doesn't it doesn't really pop amongst the various styles that are supposedly becoming a trend. I've heard people say it's the belgian triple is potentially there might be confused with the triple. Ip not hurt. Or i might be a belgian triple black ip there. You're next thing yeah right. Yeah so. I was there that even tied. I think they had a riot. Barrel aged wisenberg vise and bach. That is and why something like that was really good.

Okay cage islander We heavier scottsdale which was quite nice. I enjoyed all of them. They were the see wisp. Those yeah that was good at backwards.

They're to draw january campaign with us athletic brewing and they send us one that we haven't had before free wave which is their double hopped. Ipa a. that's my favorite one.

The beer guys have the scoop time for headlines around according to a new report for the first time in. Us history more women than men are drinking alcohol or at least they were based on two thousand nineteen data. There's really no telling what's happened in two thousand twenty. What we'll find out soon enough but that's a big thing. Based on the data women made up fifty point one percent of alcohol drinkers in two thousand. Nineteen the reason given for this growth is women are increasingly delaying marriage as they pursued degrees and careers. Statistically women drink less after marriage by a pretty large margin apparently so there are also shifting attitudes towards alcohol consumption for mother's making it more acceptable from others to have a glass of wine or a beer without any kind of stigma of being a bad parent so all of these factors are coming together and women are drinking. Times are changing s times justin. Do you see that in your taproom. How's your demographics there. Oh absolutely i mean we see a pretty even mix. We see people coming in couples. We see women command by themselves to pick up there. I had no idea festivus the culture where we are but it sounds like it's pretty normal everywhere. i mean. my wife always asked.

"You know, I remember off the Parliament and back in 2000 and three young and freshly elected to Parliament. I was 28 or 29, like half the age of most of the MPs. Yeah, it's that she was generally aware of what went down in scar back that there was this computer problem. Someone got some extra votes. It was real. Really strange And for me, it was really a concern because our most concern is that the people can trust the electronic system and with the this sort of problem we are not sure the people can trust the system. So we we waited for the report of the specialist. And finally, about three weeks after the election, it came out Yeah, we only well, we ended up writing that at some point during the day, the 13th bit had flipped means nothing means nothing that then That's what she's thinking. No, no, no. There. There must be more. Nobody can understand this sort off vocabulary, and I was confused with explanation because way down at the bottom of the report in the final paragraph. The only thing they said about a possible cause, Woz and I quote This phenomenon is extensively described in these specialized literature. Yes, we did write that. And what? What were you referring to? There? Nothing in particular. What's this? Why? They're not explain what's really happening. So so he went to her fellow parliamentarians and was like there was a problem. We don't know what really happened. Like we've got to look into this. What can we check? You can check who will check but the people order member off the parliament. You say? Oh, yeah, Louise, you know she's there with stranger style, and she's there. Speaking about problems basically, forget about it. It's done. We are elected election are God, there was no problem. But I said no, no way must find out what world really the problems and speak about it. So Zoe conducted me and she did send me the paper. Um, report she reaches out to this guy named David glowed.

They made it hunting. MOORHEAD subscribe wherever you get at your podcasts. This is a CBC DC podcast. Hi I'm Laura Lynch. This is a podcast from the December fifth edition of the current. But we're looking for in this throne. Speech is some clear indication that Mr Trudeau wants to really make a difference in people's lives and invest in healthcare invest. In Pharma Care Make It. Public and universal stopped taking editions kids to court tackle the climate crisis. Like we actually want to win it. We are more than willing to work together but we will not vote for something. That doesn't align with what Canadians need. That's n DP leader. Meet zing laying out what he hopes to hear later today when the Liberal government kicks off the forty third Canadian parliament with a speech from the throne for more on what to expect. I'm joined by Chris Hull. He's the CDC's National Affairs Editor and host of the House and he joins me from our Ottawa Studio. Hi Chris Good Morning. What do you think we'll be the headline from today's throne speech it's I hope that it's brief. We're expecting it to be about twenty minutes which is kind of a surprise Laura. You've worked here. If it's a big broad mandate type of letter that you're expecting from the from the government This I don't think will be it in. This is the reason Since Justin Trudeau has decided to make public of the mandate letters that he gives his cabinet minister in other words the marching marching orders. He sends to each and every cabinet minister. That has been a better clue. And we'll be a better clue as to what the priorities of the government will be so. This is more about the broad strokes. There'd there'd be three I think basic themes around the importance of collaboration. Not just with them. the other parties in in the Commons. We just heard from Jagmeet Singh but also with the premier's climate change will clearly be one of the key Measures that they WANNA talk about. If not begin to kind of detail that Jagmeet Singh like and the last one of course is affordability. It was a big I've seen during the campaign for almost all the parts making life easier for particularly middle class Canadians. But as you said broad themes where are the mandate letters well. We had expected them tomorrow on Friday They may be Monday. But they're coming shortly. I think the the schedule is a bit Knocked off by the NATO. visit that the prime minister just-concluded so either tomorrow tomorrow or Monday. We'll get a real sense of what the priorities for each of those cabinet ministers will be and of course the other dynamic here which is highlighted by what Doug Singh had to say that this is a minority government so liberals need to play Nice affect any concessions to to the DP's priorities or other parties priorities. I don't know there will be a nod to them. A concession may be too strong a word the the message that I was getting in talking to various people yesterday as the importance of collaboration to signal to Canadians that liberals got the message in the last election campaign way by being reduced to minority government by being blanked in in Saskatchewan and Alberta that they need to work and to listen to members of the opposition and to those premier so so I think there will be a collaborative collaborative sort of tone. I think for example under the heading of affordability will see a reference to Pharma care if if fall short of an absolute commitment to introduce universal single payer system. There'll be a talk about the importance of dealing with those costs. We heard from the PREMER's earlier this week that they want to see the the transfer is for healthcare to be increased. Not for new measures like Pharma Care but to deal with the growing problem of recruiting and retaining doctors of trying to reduce waiting times at hospitals. This sort of thing so I think that they do need to send a note that they have listened and that they are prepared to work with those parties to get things done would you. Would you expect any other. Bold initiatives lives in the throne speech about regionally nation. No I don't think so. I think there's an acknowledgement here that the government You know we'll have heard the message and they we'll talk about Some of the big issues that they have confronted but to your point. I asked a number of people yesterday. For example would the government considers signaling rolling in the throne speech a willingness to open regional offices for example the Ministry of Natural Resources Might Open an office in Edmonton where after all is sort of the headquarters of Jason Kenny's government but also a big part of the oil patch the energy sector. Maybe open a a a a minister's Office for Western economic development as an SASCHA tuner. Sooner Regina just to show that you're listening and you have a footprint in the area even if you didn't elect any MP's I don't know if that will be there but that was certainly one of the signals that a number of MP's he's told they would like the throne speech to include so as again with with a minority government. There's there's the issue of possible confidence votes. There's the potential for The other opposition parties to band together and pulled the government down throne speech could become a confidence vote or spending Initiative could become a confidence. Vote these they're facing these early on. Is Anyone angling to take the government down. No I don't think so and talking to both the MVP and Black Quebecois. which are the two one of those to the government would need to be able able to stay in power? There's enough MP from one or other of the parties to do that. The block recognizes. It has a A new foothold in Quebec in his willing and wants to show quebeckers. Becker at that vote wasn't wasted that they can get things done for Quebec. So they'll be looking on the climate change file. For example around pipelines what is the signal on pipelines and my understanding he is the Liberals are alive to that issue that they need to show they are aware of the block and the Quebec has a different kind of set of needs and desires in this the MVP quite frankly doesn't have the money to run a campaign again. And I think that they are also after being reduced from forty four to twenty seats. They need to show that they can get things done. Even even with the smaller membership and to give Jagmeet Singh an opportunity to prove that what we saw of him during the campaign his ability to strike the right chord can continue in the House of Commons. One last last quick point on that We are looking as you mentioned Laura for a number of bills to be introduced fairly quickly. This is only supposed to be a week or ten days that we have the parliament sitting before Christmas I think we're GONNA see legislation. That would introduce that middle class tax. Cut sometime next week to ensure that Canadian see that they are beginning to deliver on that. Promise I I think we'll see legislation to ban assault weapons After all this was a huge wedge issue for the Liberals Every single M. P.. I talked to said that the one big vote vote driver particularly no suburbs around. Toronto was harder stand. They're taking on firearms and gun control and lastly potentially a fiscal update to give Canadians a sense of where the books are. It may be in the context of supply bill because the government needs money to continue to operate. So these are the sorts of things will get an early indication of what Lisa legislative the initial shall legislative priorities will be twenty seconds. Chris and we gotTA talk about President Prime Minister Trudeau's hot mic comments at the NATO meeting in. US President trump calling him two faced. How big a deal is this? I don't think it's a big deal and Kennedy. US relations might be a bigger deal here. We heard both Jagmeet Singh and Andrew Scheer the Conservative leader talking about the misstep in very important international setting Justin Trudeau shoot over. Frankly should have known better. Instead of having a focus on the throne speech we spent a large part yesterday talking about whether he's hurt Kennedy relation all right Chris. Thank you very much okay. Laura thanks six.

The first we spotted I think was tom took an had tweeting from the benches. He wins a remain t-shirt in touch. We go size and address them. rose on our majesty cost yesterday. David Allen Green said this was the most important constitutional ruling in generations and enjoyed saying it why is that well it turned what was basically a convention into a law and it's said that a prime minister could no longer longer prorogue parliament without a really good reason and that has always been taken for granted in the past but with our man new world. It's no clearly no longer the case says Surpreme Court said that no you can't provoke parliament without AAC good reason go back and sit down and gallon diskette discussed discussed stuff again because dominic cummings is an unparalleled genius. He's always steps. He briefed whatever happened. They just prorogue again. How how would that pan out like how much they really just wanted to like this out. legally walk they get away with that would be difficult. GEICO because Geoffrey Cox the Attorney General who was speaking in the Commons today said that he would respect the judgment however you can be quite quite sure that he will be combing very minute threat for any opportunity to find another really good reason to Perot Parliament parliament as he sees it so. I don't have an awful lot of faith in that however I just think it would be it. I don't think it could happen again but perhaps perhaps. I'm fooling myself. I think he would be just too much. Spa Two Perot Parliament again at this point namely the plaintiffs careful about saying this was about preserving the law not rolling back Brexit and indeed the government was very he was about the queen's speech not pushing through Brexit but I suspect there's a little bit of Brexit in that the verdict leave leave remain is what options so it just gives us a little bit more time which the key he things so we'll lay prorogue again they're going to try to the lovely Romanian peas are keeping their cards very very close the chest for very obvious reasons because they cannot afford to let rees-mogg find out what the plumbing but they are planning plenty so be assured that they are working incredibly hard on it on the closing all the different polls as far as they can to stop the government pulling any tricks. They may let them have a bit of a recess. Batory we conference next week to let them just a little bit of that but they may not and certainly gonna do everything they can to to block any second per. Gatien but yeah I mean it's it's the usual season control view an enduring everything that we can now to get this second referendum. I'm in Copen suggested them today program that you might be able to deny the government permission to suspend parliament in for the Tory conference that that seems quite bulls. He think that would happen. You can just bad news from Manchester's hospitality industry probably for the Conservative Party. I didn't know whether it's GONNA in happened. Certainly something that they're talking about in a very real way because there's no at this point you sort of think and this is it's sort of pr because the reality of it is we the legislation that needed to be passed was passed before the progression took place. You know the the exactly right now basically saying look we're going to take we did off the table so once. That's done in terms of what you really really really need to do. That's what she done that and so now. There's this weird reverse feeling a lot of rain. We do need to make sure that we're looking busy. 'cause the lose these. Qa's have gone so you could always unanswered questions so they've backed backed. They're coming up on. All sorts of issues are nothing to do with Brexit so load stuff around Thomas Cook and other issues and this is a way to send a very clear signal that there is shit. The parliament needs to be doing and talking about there is very very very important stuff that we need to be mustered abuse. Yeah exactly there's exactly there's so much that they need to send that warning shot but similarly only the government needs to try and clean speech and justify the whole rationale for prorogation the first basically they will move to try and do that. I'd say the remain impeach our little a bit split on whether they should allow them to a bit of a mini Queen's speech or not but yeah. You're you're exactly there is there is stuff for them to be doing and they're gonNA go. It's almost like parliamentary useful at some sort of check on the executive tons of you know political crisis or otherwise. I'm reading the judgment it was very exciting maintenance star of Lady Hale in one of those kind of weird social media politics moments but some people have warned about making a hero out of her because you didn't want a US approach where judges are sort of heroes so villains and it's that kind of like notorious. BG thing would that's because of course it is much more politicized between the liberal and conservative judges I mean do. Do you think there's a danger of that that it's sort of like the flip as as say the right wing pressing the Brexit is a trying to make out the judge is biased of wedges like you go go yeah. I mean definitely you go go. I mean it wasn't just the broach. Although it was mainly the no of course of course you won't get very excited when you see somebody who really knows how to do their job really very very very well doing it and explaining to Boris Johnson Noise not allowance to do his job very very very badly so it's very exciting. The you know the it's almost welcome back experts the experts of comeback for a moment I just I just had that feeling today like the feeling I got. I mean you know it didn't end well did it but the feeling or go in May nineteen ninety seven when Labour were elected elected. Actually I've spent eighteen years growing up in this country thinking. This is a main nasty country and actually it's not like that. It's there there are people who will elect a civilized government who wanted to want to do cool things. It was just a a mini version of that Ashley. Okay okay look. There's the the grownups just for second. Just for a moment is like the a break in the clouds. It's like felt like you know the frustrating weather of a functioning democracy democracy it was it was a moment. They want to be smug because partisanship where we go. Oh sorry never partnership can make you do survey very hypocritical inconsistent but I really don't think that if the judgment gone the other way I spent the rest of the day sort of exposing the backgrounds and Social Habits of the judges will it's. It seems like very much something something that they're doing that. I don't think we would do something about remains. The you'll just less likely to try to de-legitimize judges. Do you see it from time to time. It's funny also also unbelievably upsetting an irritating when you see you know right wing commentators old brexit toes talking to each other as if across on twitter across a crowded added rooms I they don't they still don't get it. Do They Julia no they don't toby. That doesn't get you know this is a room full of people who apparently done get it the we lost the referee. I mean we really really do getting the remains will people who looked at that ballot paper and said the how but how you going to do this days ago fuck your fucking our GonNa say. We're just GONNA do it. How how you can do it. Just get on with it but how okay what Mrs Maes deal would you you got no fuck. Not Our how our myself how you fucking it. That's what it's felt like from three years and so you know much you no one wants to discriminate between the the the the people who simply vote leave for for whom. I feel some you know look. We've only got each other. We've got to live with each other eventually. You know you can quietly. They can quietly change you. Remember we're talking about the nineties nineties. Remember those maybe those those plastic straps that used to come down on the back of cars with that sort of zigzagged design was placebo for car cygnus every every other car had one of these things trailing making contact with the ground and a lot of people thought okay. That's cute my absolutely nothing to do. I mean people people still magic manufacturing this now so legally. I'm sure they do it in good faith but you know but those quietly quietly just disappeared and you didn't have to rub rub their faces their noses in them. You Idiots you wasted one pound twenty nine or whatever it costs nine hundred ninety the eight to put this thing on the back of your people can just quietly change their mind and you don't have to go. You know it's it's it's fine so you know but my feelings for the the people who lead the the prime movers of Brexit rees-mogg in France ways and Johnson and camera you know my for them. Less Gentle uh-huh in before Geoffrey Cox made his statement about accepting things. Johnson made a speech in New York with his resume Donald. Who's also had quite the week saying that he respected the judiciary is the best in the world but he profoundly disagreed and we carry on regardless which is it's just a brilliant way right to respond to any ruling that you are like Zion you just profoundly disagree with he like when you saw that. Did you think the he was just bluster. Do you think there was any threat him just somehow going now because because actually the the judges that out of his hands though both giving the does we don't need to do shit between us this early different from Minnesota doesn't need to do shit. It's up to the speaker of the House Speaker House so there was nothing he didn't have to complying Brian but it was more humiliating than up to him to comply it was up to parliament. It's a sovereign buddy. What was more so you know what we were seeing that was constitutionally this murky constitutional constitutional structure that we have become rigid where it needs to be rigid against actual executive threats to the manner in which country is run so that was positive.

"parliament" Discussed on KNST AM 790

"Parliament. The White House is trying to draw rank and file Democrats from their party's leadership to pick up votes for President Trump's proposed border wall. But no Democrats showed up yesterday. What was supposed to be a bipartisan luncheon hosted by Mr. Trump? Here's New York. Democratic congressman Hakeem Jeffries. Always simply asking for is Republicans to undertake their article one responsibility as a separate and Coequal branch of government and stop acting like wholly owned subsidiaries of the Trump administration. Meanwhile, since the enactment of the Taft Hartley act in nineteen forty-seven, federal employees have been legally prohibited from striking but lawmakers who approve that measure back then likely did not envision a scenario where the government would require its employees to work without paying them. As is the case. Now, another angle of the shutdown. From Russell Berman staff writer at the Atlantic. Russell explain this, central employees. These are PS agencies are corrections. Officers bureau of prisons either air traffic controllers, these are the secret service, and they have to go to work. Anyway, even though they are not currently being paid. That's putting a lot of financial strain on them. But they're not allowed to walk out. Because even though they're not being paid federal law. Prohibits federal employees going on strike or or staging any kind of mass walkout, and why is that why is that law in place? Has been in place since the Taft Hartley act in nineteen forty seven. And you know, of course, that was designed in the era of, you know, big labor unions to prevent, you know, federal employees from using the leverage of of a strike to demand higher pay more benefits, better working conditions where they would clearly have the power to shut down the government themselves or operations or the government in this case. However, the, you know, this.
