The Siamese political party rots Adine, or the People's Party overthrew the government of King Rama, the seventh, ending seven Hundred Years of absolute monarchy under the kings of Yom. The bloodless coup resulted in the introduction of democracy, the first constitution of Thailand. Since seventeen, eighty, two the kingdom. Or Modern Day Thailand have been ruled by the Chakri Dynasty beginning with Rama, the I who founded the capital city Bangkok. Throughout the nineteenth century, much of Southeast Asia was colonized by the British. French and Dutch crm was never subjected to colonial rule. But Rama the fifth who reigned from eighteen, sixty, eight to nineteen, ten, set out to modernize the kingdom. He introduced social and governmental reforms that were based on western models. The old ruling families rejected his reforms, but from the mid eighteen eighty s to the early nineteen hundreds. Rama, the fifth overhauled the administration established military conscription, abolished slavery and made other major changes in the country. The king was committed to modernisation. He was also committed to maintaining Thai traditions and independence. He instituted all these reforms under the guise that they would save from the threat of Western colonialism. Civilized to colonial powers than it would supposedly avoid Western invasion. Rama the Fifth Son and successor Rama the sixth also worked to modernize the M and welcomed the adoption of some European ideals. His reforms upset members of the aristocracy and nobility as well as groups of progressives and radicals. In nineteen twelve, a group of military officers conspired to overthrow the king, but the plot failed. There is debate over the main causes of the nineteen thirty two revolution, but the rise of western educated commoner elites who become dissatisfied with politics in CSM played a significant role in the event. Rama the seventh ascended the throne in nineteen, twenty, five, He created the Supreme Council of state made up of senior princes who had served in previous administrations. They quickly let go of commerce who had been appointed in the civil service and military. During Rama the seventh rule, returning Western educated students grew disillusioned with the status quo. In Nineteen, twenty, seven, a small group of military and civilian students gathered in periods with the. Founding Party to bring change to see 'em. This group of seven people call themselves the promoters and they decided to stage a coup to end absolute monarchy in the country. To achieve this goal, they formed the canal rot. Sedan or People's Party. The promoters worked on gathering supporters. Meanwhile seamless facing economic problems, the Great Depression made it to the country by nineteen thirty. The value of rice see'ums major export fell drastically land values also fell, so the government had to make a bunch of budget cuts. By nineteen, thirty two, the People's Party was made up of more than one hundred students, military officers and non-royal government officials. On the morning of June twenty-fourth, nineteen thirty two while the king was away from Bangkok. The People's party the coup. The promoters seized control of the army as well as post and telegraph offices, and they arrested royal officials who were part of the ruling group, armored vehicles and troops gathered at the Throne Hall in the Royal Plaza and one of the promoters read the narrow Sadan Manifesto, declaring the end of absolute monarchy and the establishment of a constitutional state. Rama the seventh was playing golf in the south of Seattle. When he got news of the coup, he agreed to the demands for a new constitutional system, and by December of that year he had promulgated a new Constitution A State Council and National Assembly established, but conflict between the CANARSIE DON and the king continued. A couple of years after the Revolution Rama the seventh left for England, and in nineteen, thirty five, he abdicated the throne, spending the rest of his life in England.

Taiwan mayor loses recall vote in blow for pro-China opposition

"Now a high profile math from Taiwan's main opposition party lost a recall vote over the weekend. So what do we need to know about it well? Ron Is the director of Oxford University's China Center joins US on the line. Now run a good off name. Thanks for being with us. Tell us a bit about this mare and tell us what this these moves over the weekend main. Will this is really a very major event. In Taiwan Politics Hungary the man who was recalled and has now lost his job as mayor of Kaohsiung. The second biggest city in Taiwan in the south was actually very popular figure he was actually the candidate for the opposition Nationalist Women Dang party. In last year's sorry. The earlier this year s presidential election, which was won by. The incumbent president tying one, and this means that he's essentially had a massive full from grace, a the reason essentially that he was put out for recall was that some of his political opponents argued that by running for president. He'd been neglecting his job as man, but I think that most people think that wouldn't have happened. Had it not been for the increasing unhappiness at the sense that his party is? Is relatively more friendly to mainland China and right now and certainly within the last few months. That's very voter unfriendly position to take in Taiwan politics well, indeed runner and I wanted to ask you a bit about that wide context, of course, if we go back to the start of the year knees, elections in the problems that the the the the opposition party had because of exactly that sort of. anti-china sentiment. I guess we can. We can call it. That it is all bound up together inextricably, isn't it? Eighty and it's become much more so within the last year or so essentially two things or two or three things have come together at once. One is that China is much a baking mainland China is much more hostile to the current incumbent government presidency, in Taiwan, which is run by the Democratic People's Party, which take Louis would like independence Taiwan, but they know that to put that forward openly as A. Direct plan would probably lead to a very very strong. Maybe military reaction from from China and China much prefers it when the other body equaling Dang is actually in an office. So that was one thing, but the other side was the sign. One who's economic record were was not all that might be was looking as if she was running for a defeat and then Hong Kong happened last year's protests protests in the. The streets against the proposed dishing bill essentially enabled her party to use a very convincing slogan. which was this call next year possibly Taiwan variance. Oh, that and that meant that? Essentially she had one office by placing herself up as a candidate who would not in any way bow to the demands of the mainland, which of course is now seen as an authoritarian and very aggressive state in the minds of many Taiwanese voters. Rona is something to learn I. Mean I think that point especially about the comparisons with Hongkong timings there of friction that we we've seen. Is it actually helpful to try and better understand what potentially the next steps could be in Taiwan with liquor, opposition, politics, or the balance of relationship with Beijing, is that genes truck to look to Hong Kong? Does that sort of muddy the waters yet further? It's it is instructive. Look at Hong Kong as long as understands the differences, and the most crucial one is the whether one likes it or not. Hong Kong is now a part of China's sovereign rule. It was handed back by us by the British in one, thousand, nine, hundred seven, and it is now part of People Republic of China will. Governance is overseen by treaty signed between the two countries way back in nineteen eighty five. Taiwan is different. It has never been reunified with the mainland since the. Civil War in China was one in Nineteen forty-nine by chairman. Mao Mounts Dome. But of course that separation has become more and more of a sore. That needs to be dealt with in the minds of the mainland Chinese. The differences that very much, unlike Hong, Kong Taiwan does have a not. Very strong, but certainly real promise of a certain amount of assistance Ritz on defense from the United States on the something called the Taiwan Relations Act passed in Washington in Nineteen, seventy nine, so there is a military backstop that might just might be used limits very unlikely that gives people in Beijing Portsmouth old in a way. That's not true for obvious reasons for Hong, Kong. Run I just wonder and at the risk of asking You impossibly complex question and not giving enough time to answer it. What! What's the next critical juncture to look for? If we look at this balance in Taiwan, is there a specific event is question of looking at what happens at the ballot box are there particular political Moose depend on on individuals, or is it that sort of that always tricky question? You know how the public decide to take particular developments. What do we need to account for in the in the weeks ahead? I think it's important to look out for language both on Taiwan, site analyst side of the People's Republic of China on the side of the People's Republic. You have to look and see if there's any indication that moving away from their standing statement that they would be peaceful reunification with Taiwan, always use that word now. What disappeared from one of the officials statements a few weeks ago, which caused quite a flurry, as you can imagine, but mysterious enough to what peaceful came back in the mouth of Prime Minister Meka Chang a couple of weeks later, maybe the there was a quarrel over, and it was reinserted, or maybe they just forgot if that changes again on. On the long term, it's not on the peaceful reunification that does make a difference and back anti one. You have to look at how far the wider population which of course is a liberal multi-party democracy where the mainland is not looks at this white, a question of separation. They are aware that Beijing said that their absolute blood red line is the Taiwan must not declare formal independence, but there is also increasing disillusionment in the wider population of Taiwan that the mainland really gets what it means to be a free multi-party democracy in the way that Taiwan is in the meeting of minds, very unfortunately doesn't seem doesn't seem to be very apparent. Right at the moment. Date Arana always get to hear from you that our friend from Oxford University, Rana meter, joining us here on the briefing monocle twenty

Homeschool or Flop

"Welcome to another episode of. Let's talk game with Tiffany Lewis. I'm your host. Hey guys over the weekend. I did something I've never done before. Now I love music. If you've listened to anyone podcast where you've heard me trying to sing. You know. I love music that much to try but I don't get the party much for one. I've never been a club head right into a simply enjoy spending time with my family or or watching a good movie. That's just me or reading a book but over the weekend me and over one hundred thousand people. That's what I said. One hundred thousand people partied with some of the most prominent leaders in entertainers of our time. Courtesy of DJ denies who went on Instagram. And may uncharted history for the most live yours at once. Now when I say one hundred thousand you knew that I wasn't talking about in a club or in a stadium because we're still over or in a state of quarantine in isolation for some who may have been impacted or exposed to the cove in nineteen buyers. So this was a uncharted way of partying. Because everybody party from the comfort of their own home and when I tell you I had the most fun and it was a three day maybe even four day party in it just continued to grow and I remember one day I logged on and it was probably thirteen or fourteen thousand and maybe the day before he hadn't reached that number and I don't even think it was a numbers thing I really believe. Denies was operating out of a being led moment right. Because you could just feel the Bob. He was just jamming nothing. Nothing out of the ordinary. He had his beard little scruffy. Look regular t shirt. Nothing on no branding really. But he had these hat changes which I thought was pretty interesting to add dynamic and flair because as you could imagine like in a club or at an event it's more showy right but we are just really trying to vibe off the music and he wanted to put that feel good out there and he put it out there and I think the return of what he got back was something that he did not even intimidate so shout out to him and another thing I noticed when I logged on he had probably two hundred thousand followers and the day after he reached that hundred thousand mark he went to over a million followers on instagram. And I know it's not all about the followers but it just goes to show people if you put good things out there energy. I'm not a big energy. Were user but if you put good energy out there I believe it comes back to you and it came back to him. A hundred thousand fold truly. It really did right so that was pretty good. I think over time he changed the Algorithm because the Love was dad infectious that is spread globally in just really lifting the hearts and spirits of people. I don't know if anybody has ever had that many live viewers at one time because we kept getting blocked out. I mean if you were on that party you know you were blocked out a couple times too but then some somebody somebody made it happen. Somebody's burke himself may have given the hey less lift this ban to allow an infinite number not infinite but over one hundred thousand over a hundred and fifty thousand people to be on this live at a time so hats off to you denies literally or hats on because you have a strong heck game. Let's get into today's show and talk some gain the pollen count is down. Y'All I'm not an allergy prone person but my husband has allergies. So this is huge. Pollen COUNTS DOWN. Streams and canals are clearing up in ways unseen in decades. And when I say decades I mean decades. I don't know if you've ever been to a ben is before but just the water where the Gondolas run. It was murky when we when we went very very murky. Look you cannot. You could not see through it. And somehow because of less water boat usage though the war has cleared up and you can actually see finish schools of fish and I thought that was huge to even read about right in so just making a dark or gloomy situation highlighting the positive out of it. There are some positive things I want to highlight. Some of those things in the show right rose or less busy states are still doing what they can to control the spread of Kobe. Nineteen but people seem to be leveling off from keeping their hands on the panic button like a week ago it seemed like it was just panicked panic panic frenzy frizzy frenzy right to making more rational decisions however something else has spiked students are now forced to stay home. And that's this conundrum of stay at home activity posted occupy to occupy children the day but I get it I get it but I guess. My question is home school or flop. That's the topic today. Home School or flop in this came about having my own children. Neither one of them. I have three but neither one of them are in kindergarten so my perspective on the home school. Rigors I kind of ebb and flow between never extreme but necessary however cultivated for your children. Not for competitive reasons right. I read an interesting article on the New York Times from the viewpoint of a working. Mom whose husband also works and since the corona virus. They work from home but they have twin boys who are eight and she raised some interesting viewpoints from a working mom's perspective and I'm going to read a little of what she said out of respect of for their amazing teachers. She's talking about her twin boys. I'm making a good faith effort to keep or to get my kids to do the work. That's been sent home but that does not come anywhere close to filling. What would have been a school day? After accomplishing the bare minimum. The agenda is to survive and watch too much TV. I thought that was pretty funny. We'RE EATING COOKIES AND CARBS. Hoping for the best. We are loving one another and trying not to go insane. I don't know if you hear my. That's my six month old screaming in the background. But she's fine now. Her predictions want school closed. There were more school. Closures were announced was that she would see a social media blitz from MOMS with color coded charts with every minute scheduled as well as Yoga and meditation. Inclusivity French lessons here and karate there. Could you imagine trying to teach her child karate because you just know that they still need it at home? How Bill Rocket Ship? The to`real all of these things in mom and Dad. You can attest if you're on social media this is true or if you shot of a friend who's on social media you know that this is very true so the question came to my. Are we doing too much? And I say we having to Tyler's again yet to reach kindergarten however they have daily zoom meetings scheduled with their guides and classmates on top of what I tried to incorporate for daily learning right now granted. I do believe as I said it's necessary to learn and stay connected but is this the time to four court press our children or to give them a break as a world around us seems to be in a frenzy. I want I want. I want you all to chime in but parents. Are we doing too much chime in and let me know? Is this truly a home? School or flat moment is is this the responsibility of the parent security torch for the teachers or do we try to incorporate some of their learning from school and make it our own right? That's what I want to hear back. Give me feedback and however you do that whether it be under the comments in this podcast emailing me directly t Lewis at SEM SPORTS DOT com. I WANNA know your feedback. I want to hear from you. Learning is important. But as a parent of bilingual children I defer to learning with them instead of trying to teach them right. That really works for me. And so here's some some some suggestions just from what we've been doing be creative in the areas that come naturally. We've always made meals together in done artwork together me studying art throughout college. That comes more naturally than me. Doing geometry thank God neither one of our doing geometry right now right And so I have to cook. We have to eat and making meals together as fun usually except the cleanup can be a little too arduous but this me keep their attention for one but also allowing them to learn hands on in spaces that I can navigate. Well so be creative in areas that come natural to you. If you're a mechanic maybe you have your child. If they're old enough in smart enough to just go through the tools that you use to change a tire right. That doesn't come naturally to me. I do know how to do it. But it's not natural so do things that come natural

Swiss voters approve ban on anti-gay discrimination

"And here's an update on another weekend. Vote we previewed for you. Switzerland has voted to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation a big win for the country's LGBT community. They've argued that Switzerland has lagged far behind behind other European countries on gay rights. No longer though. Sixty three percent of Swiss voters back the antidiscrimination measure. That's more support than polls had suggested Rosenwasser is with the Swiss Lesbian Organization. The holes were rather positive but it was still relieved to see that they were right about the very clear. Yes of Switzerland's population it's one of many steps to take on but they're certainly more steps that we do have to take jake one of them being marriage equality which Switzerland still does not have and we're taking all the motivation. Today's vote to fight for that marriage not quality which the parliament will talk about shortly. Switzerland's parliament is expected to vote on whether to legalize same sex marriage spring as for the ban on anti-gay discrimination. The Swiss parliament had actually passed measure in two thousand eighteen but opponents had gathered enough signatures to force last weekend's referendum they argue the antidiscrimination nation law could have an impact on freedom of speech and defended some church leaders who don't want to bless same-sex partnerships David truck soul is with the young Swiss People's Party and an organizer for the no campaign y'all dealing also taught s shine ball game. We accept the result. Trucks will says it tells us that there is a demand man for more protection it continues. We clearly disagree but obviously this argument has one.

Bernie Sanders won't admit it, but socialism is a liability

"He calls himself a democratic socialist so why did he start the democratic Socialist Party run on the democratic socialist line you know that's socialist run before including even against Franklin Roosevelt midwesterners Wisconsin Bernie Sanders doesn't right is endemic to run as a democratic socialist nobody ever asked him why he doesn't run as a democratic socialist instead he's trying to take down take over the already miserable Democrat party but I wonder about the what's the problem Mr calls grin I want you to clear a few lines I want any Bernie Sanders supporters know fakes real well just hang up on you to call this program Intel millions of people around the nation why you support Bernie Sanders and why we should support brings giving you an opportunity now that you'll never have again your candidates too much of a coward to come on this program or any of my programs that may be maybe one or two or three of his supporters will call in and explain themselves and explain what it is exactly Bernie Sanders once for the country I suspect we'll get nobody some challenging you to call I think it's important that you explain yourselves Bernie Sanders will come on this program because we have a serious discussion about his ideology and the declaration and the constitution and whether or not all of them can coexist which course they can't I want to know where the authority comes from to nationalize public utilities in nationalized healthcare whatever it is you don't cite some Supreme Court decision where's the authority in the constitution they never say to print quick decisions when they lose so I cite them when you win I'm talking about the constitution by the way speaking of that the constitution my wife and I saw the Clarence Thomas movie this weekend Mr petition it was fabulous absolutely fabulous and I learned more about Clarence Thomas then in before even having read his book because he elaborates on points one of the things you really gonna love about this I don't know if they're gonna run it additional days in the theaters or not I mean after all he's not was bare Ginsburg with a run it for months and Hollywood gets behind it and so forth but he he speaks in a straightforward common sense way it tells you exactly what took place in his life during the hearings and so forth and at the end of the movie everybody applauded uploaded this is a giant speaking of giants Clarence Thomas is a giant he believes in the family he believes in fidelity to the declaration and the constitution he believes in those words natural law natural rights which mean what god given unalienable rights god given puts things in proper perspective not Bernie Sanders given that Elizabeth Warren given god given and of course for the rest of left the secularists the status they cannot accept that they rejected otherwise their entire ideology falls apart first of all there's god can have that and secondly there the limits placed in the constitution on their power can have that in third this this huge problem called unalienable right I keep hearing these guys on the Senate floor Democrats I think we call them house managers another Democrat managers every Republican voted against it they're Democrat manage they're Democrat handlers the Democrat propagandists thrown through talk about democracy trump is a threat to our democracy in a democracy we have transparency and of course it's the opposite of everything they've done but that's not the point there's a huge distinction between a democracy and Republic democracy is extremely dangerous we've talked about this but underscore the point if you believe an unalienable rights any democracy they can't work together because that means people can vote to deny you your unalienable rights the whole purpose of a constitutional Republic is to secure your constitutional right to protect the from tyranny to any of the mob you see during the mob right now from tier any the few from whatever the Tierney is the constitution is like a protective shield to protect the individual on the civil society so they keep time in a democracy and direct elections in this sort of thing can I expand on this more tonight on live in TV but let me just touch this because we have a very odd thing going on in this country and one of the few who's willing to speak out against this I am not a populist populism which really had its first first the sort of systemic viewer eight or more tangible approach was in the eighteen late eighteen sixties early eighteen seventies even at a popular Sir people's party back then you see the distinction between those who believe in individual liberty in those who believe in centralized government becomes ambiguous if you're a populist what does that mean the people should rule now is some of the constitution says the people should rule they set up the Senate so the state legislatures choose the senators they know how to set it up if they wanted the people to vote that was change for the seventeenth amendment they set up the presidency so it's not a direct election so there's an electoral college what did they do that because they didn't want a popular quote unquote democracy a mob Akhras's the courts lifetime appointments I believe term limits but what I believe is beside the point they set up a court lifetime upon the only directly elected body is the house of representatives part of the Congress that's it if they believed in populism why would there be a Senate if they believe in populism why would you vote for judges would that be great not be disaster the states they have in most states it's a disaster you know more in Florida were driving through and it's election time for their judges vote for any robot ski District Court is nobody knows who the hell are need to brush it any Grabowski is then I reading his opinions now we're not a pure democracy we're not even a democracy and no this isn't about populism it's about constitutionalist and constitutionalism is about a polling individual right liberty god given right so you need a governing body unity governing system in a civil society who's going to call the shots is a diverse society there's a lot of people is a lot going on he got a lot of states and so forth so the constitution is the roadmap the constitution is what lays it out now if you read rediscovering Americanism by the way Mr producer I told the publisher to send a copy to every Supreme Court justice after I watch this Lawrence Thomas movie I'm sure they're all read it very carefully anyway so if you understand progressivism they have to reject our founding documents they have to reject because the emphasis is put on the individual and the individual's relationship with god progressivism doesn't put an emphasis on individualism it puts an emphasis on collectivism and its relationship to government they're two completely different ideology and so when they talk in Iowa about very Sanders is leading in the polls her Bernie Sanders will win and so forth and you have so called populist in our country some on television some just in Congress some who are egg heads whatever and they're out there talking about would populace and so forth were but we'll wait is there populism and and Bernie Sanders populism begin Mister but if somebody needs to read a trip right a treatise on this because I can't figure it out and either can they which is why more and more of these so called conservative populist sound more more like Bernie Sanders or a more more sympathetic to all the Democrat party trying to stop Bernie Sanders well he's not even a Democrat and what was me Bernie Sanders is a victim who gives a crap let them brutalize and let them realize each other it's bizarre it's bizarre in this appeal unfortunately is an appeal that goes beyond our borders autocracy has an appeal particularly among free people why because they never believe that it's going to devour their lifestyle and of course their lifestyle is the target think about government run healthcare for a minute let's say you can't get the drug that you want were you gonna go to get it how you go to appeal it let's say you have some horrific disease and it's very very expensive if you're not on the list at HHS or the CDC you're not on the list that is the disease you don't get we see these things happening in Britain we see these things happening in Germany and France all around the EO we see these things happening in Canada and on top of that what else do we see they smother innovation life saving drugs and as many of you know it is I witness will witnessing today people who are extremely ill extremely ill many would do anything for a life saving drug and I want to take this one step further our minds our intellect our brains are built to find solutions government is built to smother them redistribution of wealth radical egalitarianism that's not about allowing the human mind to develop knowledge to grow intellectually in any field science is what have you it's mother's it substitutes the will of the politician the will of the bureaucrats the will of the mob where the middle of the the the the will of the tyrant so it also tries to control what's between your ears what you think what you say what you can develop and create and produce it's anti human being it's anti compassion think about it I'll be right back then when

Airbnb to review 'high risk reservations' following Halloween shooting

"So crazy story on Halloween last week a House party at a House that was rented on airbnb resulted in a shooting and the death of five people this is in the bay area since Saturday airbnb CEO uh-huh branch Huskies tweeted that the company is banning house parties and taking steps to quote combat unauthorized parties and get rid of abusive hosts and guest conduct and quotes AIRBNB will expand screening of high risk reservations and create a dedicated house party rapid response team now real quickly I I am not the kind of person that says why didn't you do this earlier because sometimes you just do it when it's necessary however the fact that they are announcing this after her deaths bothers it really bothers me this this should have been something that airbnb was saying we had a policy in place in the failure of that policy led us to revise the policy also look at it not we're going to start finally cracking down on this people have been complaining about AIRBNB rentals being used as house party locations for years this is not new and it shouldn't shouldn't have taken this to cause them to take extraction in my opinion you know what's very interesting about the timing of the story is so where I am where I live now I am in I am in my own space I'm in my own garage I got an apartment but on the same property is an AIRBNB location my landlords will be here here and there but for the most part it is a money making operation and I'm kind of part of that whole thing I'm GonNa sort of be you know on the ground helping people you know if they need to find keys or whatever you know once they're here here so this is this is something that I am embracing at the same time we've had a lot of conversations you know my landlord and and I and you know a couple other people involved been like what is her party policy I don't want people partying on the ground says because I don't want you know noise because I'm an old lady lady but at the same time it's like you have to think of safety stuff like what are we really willing to allow and I think that in many cases the money making aspect of AIRBNB and it's not just airbnb it could be VR b o or home away or you know there are there are other services airbnb he is kind of the big one at this point there are lots of policies in place that a landlord might have what you're supposed to adhere to but if they're not around you kind of do what you want and that's why we're getting into these situations like this not that anybody should be shooting each other on any premises over her that's obviously horrible but but just saying hey you can't have seven people over like that's not cool is there someone there to make. I'm sure that you're not doing that well vacation rentals aren't new done I've done vacation rentals not through AIRBNB in places like I've done them through and Hawaii I've done vacation rentals through airbnb in Palm Springs and when they are managed responsibly it's very clear to you palm springs particularly clearly is very clear about this because they're near the coachella thing you are not allowed to do certain things and they make it up front super clear they make you sign a separate contract contract the problem here is Airbnb has done enough for the casual people who are like oh I guess I can just run on my house cool to to do things to protect protect against abusive the policies and I'm glad to see that they are now but it's it you're right it should have been done earlier and it is horrible situation that that that happened at this particular residence but but yeah it it's on Airbnb mean be you know this is a company that makes so much money off of people trying to make a little you know little cash off of being away from home and and let other people in there have a policy for things like this

Party of ex-Chancellor Kurz wins Austrian election

"Welcome to the briefing we begin by turning our attention to Austria where former Chancellor Sebastian Courts as won a general election and in convincing fashion snap election was called following the collapse of the previous government made up of the People's Party of Mister Courts and the far-right Freedom Party hardy video had revealed the Freedom Party's openness to Russian influence. Peddling courts will now have to choose between shifting left or going back to his former allies in the far right party to form a new government for more on this. I'm joined by tests should covets. UK Correspondent for Austria Profile magazine Tessa. Thank you for joining us and and welcome back to the show Were you surprised at all. I don't buy this results. I think everyone was surprised because the opinion polls before forty elections showed a better resort for prognosis for the far-right what happened I think in the last weeks before the elections was that the far-right Freedom Parthiv got involved. There were some revelations about expense scandals around the leadership and former former head of the party has gone and that further dampen their the the results so a combination of the bitter video scandal from May with these new revelations just kicked him off the chances to return to government as the logical partner that for Christian for Sebastian quote what's so we will see now in long probably difficult coalition negotiations if he indeed will to the Green Party as coalition nations partner. I want to come back to that expensive scandal you mentioned but you are right. The Green Party did surge which is quite curious here sort of square in the middle the People's Party the Conservative Party is the Social Democrats as well which is quite curious. The Conservative Party gained a lot of ground far right lost ground obviously because of of that scandal but with the performance of the Greens does that put into question where the former chancellor is going to look for a new partner in in his coalition while he's definitely the successful populist he managed to gain votes though his previous coalition was failed completely in renewing Australia sort of fear contract with the people in the future so they just had to resign after eighteen months and still he comes out as the one who is the staple prime minister that people trust again to form another government so that's the first thing so the second thing is that the Zeitgeist has changed a little bit in the last two years so the last elections refund on a tough immigration stands after the refugee crisis resulted in strong anxieties in the population this time we're sort of in the middle of Friday's for future a frenzy people thinking about the climate catastrophe more than about the the consequences of immigration could try to push the immigration a topic in all conversations or interviews during during the election campaign but in fact the resides in the success of the green pod shows that the younger voters want something else than the constant immigration debate so they turn to the Green Party and a lot of people in the middle of the society also thought that they wanted some kind of the more open minded and more progressive stance on questions like immigration European Union and end climate and those people voted either green or for this small Liberal Party which was also quite successful. Do we have any indication of which way ah the former chancellor is leaning here for his Coalition Party as he say sort of it is a popular thing now more people are thinking about the climate obviously climate change rather more people voted voted green so he's quite young guy as well not only in age but in his political experience so may he be more curious to to shift left in in building and continuing to grow on his popularity he might and this is a big test now for him as a politician because he was very quickly quickly turning to become one of these right wing populace strongmen tough on immigration and constantly talking about political Islam. I am in how to sort of restrictor these influences in Australian in his Austrian homeland and artists sixty. You know the rhetoric from other other right wing politicians in Europe to now. He has the chance to move back to the middle and do a coalition with the Green Party ideologically. Lee I think this will be quite difficult for him because he has always said that he felt comfortable in the coalition with defy red because they shared a lot of his reform plans and also this anti immigration stance now we will see what he will do and it will be a a very big test also for the Green party because they are much more progressive much more welcoming to immigration much more open minded and in then Sebastian could so for them to go into coalition is quite dangerous too but it's now the moment where Australia has decided and where the Green Party ends passive quits mainly mainly those two have to decide if they want to prevent the fire to come back from into government or not and we will probably see this by the end of the year beginning of next year only the results so the next week will be quite interesting Tessa. Thank you so much for this just fits their

Ukraine president's party leads ahead of parliamentary vote

"In April laniers Alinsky swept victory in Ukraine's presidential election it was a curious case of life imitating art misters Alinsky was the comedic star of show called Servant of the people I mean which depicted a regular guy swept into the presidency with a message of change once in power misters Alinsky wasted no time guy over what's going on in his inaugural speech. He said he would dissolve parliament and hold early elections. The vote will take place on Sunday on the ballot. This time is Mr Zielinski. Namesake Servant of the People party polls suggest it'll make a strong showing he needs it too if he's going to make good on his promises to Ukrainians frustrated with the old guard some of that old guard must be voted out of parliament in the Ukrainian system. The president has limited powers. I Know Snyder covers Ukraine economist most of the governing hours belong to parliament and government formed. I coalition in parliament so despite his victory presidents Alinsky has had pretty limited room for maneuver. He's been saddled with essentially okay the par Shankar government his efforts to make progress in terms of lawmaking have been stifled and so he's been restricted to sort of symbolic steps and I think he wants to take the real lovers of power but I mean can he what what sort of political influence dizzy hat I mean I I understand. He's a good sort of figure for people to focus on but do you think he can gather the political will he needs so if the polls are it'd be believed his party serving of the people is polling somewhere between forty and fifty percent some even in thinking might be able to gather pure majority regardless of whether they crossed the fifty percent threshold or not hill likely have the largest block in parliament and the dominant position in whichever coalition he chooses to form and in part it is a reflection of what people have seen in him so far he's made a series of sort of symbolic steps things like canceling a military parade and instead paying bonuses to servicemembers reducing the number of the presidential staff announcing plans as he had promised during the campaign to move the presidential administration from its old imposing Soviet headquarters. These are things that have signaled to voters that he's serious about change and so far Ukrainians are choosing to believe but I mean the single biggest thing they went to believe is that undue influence on the government by all the guards and the like will go away I mean does he presented credible chance of that exactly and this is the rub as always in Ukraine where the political system is under the grip of oligarchs. Mr Lansky has faced questions about his ties to one oligarchy in particular eager Colombo ski who was the owner of the T._v.. Channel on which Mr Leonides comedy shows ran in recent years when you take a look at the list of candidates for his party it seems to be a real l. sort of grab bag of genuine young reformers and political novices looking to make a mark for the first time old friends and associates from his previous life as an actor and folks with some questionable ties including two oligarchs so the parliamentary list is in some ways manifestation of Lewinsky's desire to be everything to everyone and the question will be if Mr Zelinski does manage to gather a parliamentary coalition and form government. What kinds of laws will start to push firsthand? How directly will he challenged the oligarchy interests? It's still largely controlled Ukraine. So what exactly is he planning to do to address those concerns. His policy platform has been quite heavy on things like introducing more what he calls snug avoided avoided direct democracy decentralizing if you will more power to the people removing immunity from deputies M._p.'s parliament so some somewhat populist moves like that the question of sort of economic policies policies a bit fuzzier. He's promised to continue with the steps required under an i._M._F.. Loan program it's helping to prop up Ukraine's economy even to this day. He's promised to pursue tough anti corruption measures but his legislative agenda. We'll really come into focus. Once parliament forums it is a bit of a smorgasbord something for everyone and it seems to be working as intellectual strategy well working at least as the polls are concerned anyway. What do you think he intends to do regarding relations? Into Russia and the conflict in eastern Ukraine this is another obviously major if not the major issue for Lansky and for his presidency he's taken a different approach in certain important ways to par Shaneco are Sankoh pursuit of very a outright ethno nationalist even approach to the conflict Zilenski has been more willing to talk about and pursue building ties with the people not necessarily the leadership of but the people stuck in the Russian controlled controlled separatist territories in eastern Ukraine. He's been more flexible about the use of language switching freely between Russian and Ukrainian Russian being spoken more commonly in the east of the country and he's already engaged in some direct diplomacy even with Putin himself. There's a potential prisoner exchange in the works and that would be certainly a signal of positive movement and perhaps assign that the two leaders are engaged in a more constructive dialogue than in the past but at the same time Lansky will have to fight off horses domestically who will accuse him of being too nice as it were to folks in the east of getting to engaged with Putin and that will present challenge for him going forward and so all told what chances do you give him move overturning public opinion of reading the government of undue influence of stabilizing the economy of normalizing relations with Russia. What what odds do you give success in terms of the symbolism? He's already had some big successes his figure his person in in and of itself represents a new Ukraine a post Soviet generation or generation that didn't make its name and it's money in the murky division of assets after the fall of the Soviet Union the Ukrainian populace at large already beginning to have a more rosy outlook about the future about the direction of the country the downside is that if he can't fill that shiny new form with the content of governance that could be real disillusionment and he'll be up against deeply entrenched interests and forces throughout out the bureaucracy throughout the economy throughout the state know how to run this system and how to work this system much better than the former comedian turned resident.

He does. And this bull is not an easy city to govern for him. I'm in the in the weeks full of poll, I, I went and spoke to many people from different backgrounds including kind of staunch aka p voters.

"But it's a thin majority, and pro European parties need to unite said, Monthan vendor meter of the centre-right, European People's Party from now on, so, so, wants to have a strong European Union has to sign that full service. And for more on the airplane parliament election. And the fate of Europe. We turn to header Conley, senior, vice president and director of the euro program at the center for strategic and international studies, and former deputy assistant secretary of state for Europe during the George W Bush administration. Welcome back to news hour. Let's start big picture. We saw weakening of the center, left and the center, right parties that have dominated European politics for decades. Does that mean the European Union, the European experiment itself is getting weaker? Well, the, the, the European unity that was once held by these two traditional parties, the centre-left in the center. Right. That order is ending. So there's some new organic forces coming to play certainly the far. Right. Is here to stay. They earn twenty five percent of the vote. But there's a new exciting force. That's coming to the forefront, the liberals centrists, the green party. And so there's a regeneration. But what this means right now. Is that there's total fragmentation that really no one party can hold a majority now it'll take two three even four parties to put forward, a majority and European leaders. Don't know how to do that type of complexity at the at the European level. So. We are in some unchartered territory. It's exciting for probably not the excitement that those twenty eight year Ken leaders thought they would have. No usually isn't these days for Europe. You mentioned how populist did get about twenty five percent. There were fears that, that number would be higher, though. And so in some ways, because the pro European parties still have a majority in the European parliament is you? And I we're talking really does this mean that this election is a little bit more about continuity than it would be about chain. It will feel like there's less change because now they're just going to take three to four political groupings to come together. And they'll still hold that center. There's still a two-thirds majority. That's very pro e you but that twenty five percent Ken disrupt they can prevent the EU from going forward. The problem is those pro you forces have very different ideas about how to lead what's important and trade, and the economy and migration. So there's going to be some very. Interesting conversations we've saw the first one this evening when e you leaders met, they really couldn't agree on much. So this may be a long hot complicated summer to figure out the most important six new positions across the EU this summer. Many of these elections as, as you know, about the, the countries themselves and kind of a referendum on the leaders in those countries zoom in a little bit Italy Matteo Salvini deputy prime minister critics. Call him a solitary -tarian does he emerge as more strong after these elections? He has certainly emerged as the dominant political force in Italy. And what he was trying to do was using this his his acceleration of popularity in Italy, and create basically a pan, European far right? Group merging? With Francis marine Le Pen and others in the EU to cobble together this far right? Group. It didn't work quite as to plan and what's so hard about these groups. They're very nationalistic. They don't agree on very much so his sort of proclaimed great block wasn't as great as the anticipated. But again, at home today, Matteo Salvini was already pushing the EU on its economic policies. He wants to grow. Oh, a talion debt. He wants a lot of relief for Italian banks. And the EU basically said today. No, you have to stick to the rules. So he's going to challenge the EU quite a bit Germany on Markle quickly. Obviously the glue. There's many people believe that holding Europe together a lot of turmoil inside her coalition, but she's trying to stay in power for the next two years. Yes, the that glue is really going through a very difficult political transition, uncle America will stay. She tells us until twenty twenty one she was hoping that her era, parent would be ready for that leadership. This election show that her party and the new leader is not quite ready. And now the her Markle's coalition partner is now the third largest party could almost be the fourth party that again, that old post World War, Two political structures are just giving away. And if Germany can't find a path forward Europe can't find a path for it. So it's so important. Time we have left that last point is so key. I mean what should Americans know what should care about these leaders that we're talking about, and these elections? Prepare for President Trump to visit Europe on the seventy fifth anniversary of d day, Europe is so vital to America's economic prosperity jobs at our economic growth, as well as to our security, which is why we have US forces there. It helps ensure America's security. So Europe is very important. We've lost so much blood so much treasure incident a project that we have to keep fighting for. And there are a lot of ghosts that are coming back that we don't want to see.

What do the European election results tell us abou politics?

What do the European election results tell us abou politics?

"We begin at this hour. However, with the results from the EU elections. I know you're saying what do I care about the elections? The EU man. What do I care over there? We're over here. Well, it does have some pretty significant ramifications, not only for foreign policy in the United States, but also it goes to sort of mentality of a lot of folks in the west right now, so called populist, nationalist movement, that has been burgeoning across Europe, and the United States is on the move these elections show, it again, according to the Associated Press Francis president and the leader of Italy's eurosceptic far-right movement jock. For the role of chief powerbroker on the continent on Monday after elections to the European parliament hollowed out the traditional polling middle after four days of balloting that drew to a close Sunday across the European Union's twenty eight countries ended the domination of the main center, right? And center left parties in parliament and established the anti forces on the right and the environmentalists on left as forces to be reckoned with the center, right? And center left had basically agreed on open, immigration and free trade. Those were sort of the basic premises of the centre-right, and central now I think most people still agree on free-trade, although there are folks on the environmentalists left who do not. But I think what's happened here is that people basically on the on the far-right, meaning the nonsense righty, just regular. Right. And the have decided that they are tired of taking orders from people in Brussels people. They did not vote for bureaucrats that are elected. We'll get to decide how they do their business, and they've also decided that they are tired of not being in control of their own borders. When it comes to immigration. One of the things about being a member of the EU. Is that if somebody enters Germany, as an immigrant, they can then move anywhere inside the EU and a lot of folks are getting uptight with this. And I think for some pretty good reasons, voters delivered the highest turnout in twenty years, rejecting mainstream politics in France, Germany, Britain, and Italy, the results could make the business of governing Europe, even trickier, leaving the parliament deadlock issues to come including immigration, a major trade agreement with the United States, global warming regulation of the tech industry. And of course, Brexit, there's been a lot of talk about the EU regulating, top-down environmentalism the far left is picked up points there. But so has the far right. Which, basically says no, we're done with this. We're not going to cram down on ourselves, all sorts of environmental regulations that make our lives worse, while the chief polluters on planet earth are outside of Europe. The outcome of the election is already setting off power struggles in France. President Emmanuel Macron's party narrowly lost the French far-right led by marine Le Pen, Macron's party was poised to secure twenty one seats to twenty two for men's national rally. Spent Monday busily amassing allies ahead of a summit Tuesday in Brussels, hoping to build a durable coalition. Now it's worthwhile. Noting here. What was originally designed to do? The EU was originally designed for a couple of purposes. The European Commonwealth, it was designed number one to have an integrated market, which most people still agree with. But number two, it was designed effectively to keep Germany down to integrate Europe for future security threats end to integrate Europe against the threat to the east, namely, the Soviet Union. Well, Soviet Union no longer exists. And a lot of countries are saying no, the chief threat right now is not coming from any external power, the chief threat right now is coming from those bureaucrats in Brussels, who wants to run our lives in Italy. That is how beanies right-wing party won a third of the country's vote. They're poised to become the biggest parties in European parliament with twenty eight seats in the seven hundred fifty one legislature by midday Salvini had already spoken to lapenne Hungary's, hardline, anti-immigrant, Prime Minister, Viktor, Orban, and Brexit leader. Nigel Farraj and was promising to singlehandedly bring together, an international group of nationalists. The centre-right European People's Party, the central of socialists and Democrats dominated parliament, but they are getting creamed. They're getting creamed in these polls writing what they called Europe's. Green wave environmentalist parties taking action on climate change, did make strong gains, particularly in Germany, where you would figure a lot of Angela Merkel's voters have been moving to the left, basically everything is becoming polarized has gone can fin is one of the leading candidates from parties in the future majority of European parliament goes thrust without question there isn't one without us in Germany, Anglo, Merckel, centre-right movement, also lost ground. A subdued EP candidate emend for Weber said, we're facing shrinking center from now on those who want to have a strong European Union. Have to join forces. Real power. In Europe remains in the hands of the twenty eight Member States parliaments influences grown they've helped improve air flight safety, and you're up they've cut down on plastics use. They've basically regulated enormous number of different industries inside of Europe. And a lot of nations are saying, I don't want Anglo-American deciding for Britain. What exactly are immigration policy ought to be Anglo Merckel is very upset about all of this, obviously, she says dark forces at play here. But the reality is that she helped break apart that centre-right centre-left coalition that has been governing European politics for very long time. Germany has been hesitant to report the rise in crime levels. Thanks to increased migration in Germany, but those increased tram levels have been taking place. The same has been true of anti-semitism in Europe, folks on the left wished to pretend that anti-semitism in Europe is purely in effect of the far right? Neo Nazi parties, which are indubitably and have always been disgusting and horrify, but it is important to note that when it comes to anti-semitism across Europe is from attic rise is in large part due to the increase in the number of Muslim refugees being taken from the Middle East. Now they're the only country that has refused to join your reporting on this, basically, as Germany. So Germany keeps saying that all of the violence in Germany directed against Jews is being directed by the far right? However, it is important to note that a lot of the statistics that they cite do not include a huge majority of the incidents as politically motivated. So, for example, there's a research and information center for anti-semitism report that came out last year, and it's that there is an increase in anti semitic offenses in two thousand eighteen over a thousand in Berlin alone. They according to the study, most incidents had no apparent political motive forty nine percents of cases had no traceable motive in politically motivated cases right wing extremism was identified as the main motive followed by activists hostile toward the state of Israel, which would be nine percent. So eighteen percents for white wing extremism nine percent for activists hostile toward the state of Israel Islamic motive was only identified in two percents of the cases. But again, that is leaving more than half of all these incidents off the board. So we just don't really know in those particular cases, and if Germany were to follow the broader patterns in Europe, it would suggest that it is anti semitism, that has led to this massive uptick. There's a report from the European Union agency for fundamental rights back last year. James, Kirk reported for tablet magazine, it found that much of the upswing is predominantly, Muslim and origin. According to the findings are dispiriting it confirmed. What many? No, but he will say that European anti-semitism is predominantly Muslim origin, followed in close, second by the left wing variety. According to respondents who experience some form events Medicare aspens in the past five years. Thirty percents of the perpetrators are Muslim twenty one percent where people espousing left wing view, that would be a majority only thirteen percents, expressed a right wing view. A third of respondents in Europe, where Jewish say that they no longer feel safe there as using are considering emigrating left-wingers responsible for a full quarter of anti semitic harassment in the United Kingdom kingdom, that is more than twice that of right-wingers and exceeded only by those views, or religious background, the victims could not describe in Germany, where the absorption of over one million mostly Muslim immigrants has propelled, the nationalist alternative for Deutsche lend into becoming the country's third largest political party, sparking fears of a right-wing revival forty one percent of the perpetrators were reported to be Muslim just twenty percent right wing. So something is getting hidden here something is getting hit in here really. The German government is reporting as they did today that eighty nine percents of all anti semitic incidents were traceable to the far-right. But this survey from the EU is finding that forty one percents of perpetrators of anti-semitic harassment were reported to be Muslim in Germany and just twenty percent right wing. That's a massive massive discrepancy suggest that perhaps the government of Germany is not being honest about its districts. The reason all this is important is because if you want to acknowledge, what exactly is happening. In europe. You have to acknowledge that taking invest swabs of people without any move toward assimilating, those people or figuring out, whether those folks agree with western values, that's going to be a problem. Any place you do. This is going to be a problem. It doesn't matter any prevailing culture, or a bunch of folks from the non-privileged culture who oppose the values the prevailing culture, enter that will create cultural conflict, and it doesn't matter. Which cultures you're talking about. And this is not to suggest that Muslims can't be great citizens of Europe or the United States at all. They can be. But if you were taking invest, unvetted, Muslim migration from areas of the world that have no history of western values are really shocked when vast one of those people are not simulating in that has some problems with it. This is I think what is driving people nuts in Europe. And in the United States this notion. The can't be protective of your country's culture by asking that folks assimilate. And then if you do that, you are some sort of racist that you are some sort of bigot. It's really despicable. And that's what the left is the center has done to the center has been doing this in Europe. And that's why more people are moving away from the centre. They're saying if we cannot say that we want immigrants who come into our countries to be vetted, so that they believe in our system, or willing to change to believe in our system. Then why exactly would listen to you or bringing in a lot of these folks without regard for that, again, multi-culturalism is such a fail in Europe that even angle miracle, and David Cameron have suggested multi-culturalism was a fail. The same England who brought a million Muslim refugees from the Middle East is suggested that multi-culturalism is a giant fail because it is. And yet, the political class, in Europe refuses to acknowledge the multi-culturalism is a fail because the alternative would be to call for assimilation or too slow immigration. It'd be more picky about immigration. And a lot of folks in European Europe, chattering classes, don't want to do that, not really sympathy reasons but because many of the countries of Europe rely on new immigrants. In order to provide the labor base for what's happening in Europe Europe has an incredibly slow growth rate. Thanks to lower birth rates. It's not a wonder that people in Europe are polarizing on these

"Drafts. Your sports radio six ten with smitty and trap. Jeremy Brandon Joe George alongside as well. So last week we were leaving the show, and I just got done watching the fire festival documentary on Netflix. I told you guys check it out. So did you guys do that? You guys check it out. We definitely check it out, man. And that was great recommend. I wasn't the only one. But when you said that I was like in Germany seen something that I haven't seen. I need to get on. That is a I get with. He don't watch anything all the hip stuff. All everything is the that is dripping everything that is cooling in new or even back into list, though, if he so the fact that he saw that I had to get on it quits fastener. Hurry. It was. Interesting. Yes. And king is like goes. Gay later. Yeah. Definitely a lie. You can't. But at the same time, you know, here's a crazy. He knows this is wild thought. I really believed it could have worked if if you be paying the bills it could postpone the dang event. Just pose no moving back. No, not he moved back to July. Not even move back three months. I don't think they should have moved it back three months if he'd been if even paying his bills on time he had no money. Nobody had. Twenty seven million dollars thirty million dollars. That's how much money they spent. But they didn't actually have that money. They were like running up credit cards. He didn't exactly so he was talking about he had like two hundred and fifty thousand dollars and Facebook stock when he actually. Two hundred five hundred. Rosaiah was was old. Hustler hustler. They ran out of hustling. I feel wrong calling my hustler hawks. Just because I feel like a hustler can be like a good thing was he could have been a good or bad. If he uses superpowers for good. He could have been filled looks good filthy stinking rich like if you do changed the game. Like, no question. I think where he screwed up is if he would have done like they talk about well, he paid for Bella her D D pay for Haley, Barbour when all of to come to the island and sixty people seventy people party right there on whoever's credit card or wherever dollar if he took that to say, you know, what Bella D, you invite three people. Haley ball, you invite three people you vibe bomb. And then all of a sudden you get a couple of artists. Didn't you do party that way? And all of a sudden, it's the who's who is the who's who of a party because all those fifteen girls, we're gonna invite fifteen other people or twenty other people each there. We're gonna make set it off. But then I just when when they told you do not mention the fact this Pablo Escobar. Yeah. And the first ten seconds of your video, you mentioned Pablo Escobar's island that was foreshadowing though, that was foreshadowing to the sense that he couldn't he could phones Russian. Yeah. He couldn't keep his pride aside. That he had to say it was Pablo Escobar is island. But even so Pablo's Escobar's island was not big enough for him to make the money. He wanted to make off of that he needed to go to a bigger location. And so he ended up at the right location as far as that island. But it was at the wrong, it all it was the only thing that was wrong with the timing. If he would have did that event four months later, they would've they would've killed in that same space. Miss is that like he he overbooked his event. Like, even if they pushed it back. He had three hundred plus people that had nowhere to sleep. Like, this guy is just the scum of the earth because he ran they ran out of tits. If you had an extra four months, you can get more tense. They had more space like have you have you ever seen the coke Shelton's now man on the the soup? Does a super nice. Oh, yeah. Dizzy down. Supposed to have here like tens like I'm going. I'm going to Ben park leave outside hurricane. Hurricane says. Look. Horrible. Though, he didn't have the bread to get those coach others as though the bread. But if you would've if he would have worked there, right? He could have got the sponsorships. Is to get down. His only problem with me. We're not seeing when I watched because I have experience in this. Of course nightclub for five years like understand a lot of stuff that was going on. I was just like man if he just would have worked the timing better. He would've Kilty see he did it the right? He made it look organic. When like you were talking about earlier when he had the models at the island. They created that footage wherever those those digital photographer and marketers they've put that video together that was the excellent. After. Sold it out in like two days without any it was there was no prior background to this thing out. They pushed it the right way shit of they timing. The right way. But I don't think they ever you said they've never approached it the right way, I think when you had the right idea, but at the same time you can't sell things that you don't have yet. The the the idea was all they had. Trooper. But the problem is if you build it they will never pardon. Bear never starting to build like, even I even at I if you say, even if we do it on his own this island. There's no, where's the plumbing? Right. It was like the guy the pilot guy. The pilot guy was the smartest guy that they had and they fired where they want if they would have listened to him it would've took longer. Right. But he was dug to their time line because of the contracts that he sold to from the investment model. The problem was they probably didn't they didn't know how to put together any sort of infrastructure whatsoever. None and they dragged a defeat drag defeating all we need. Yeah. You think about this five months ago, and they're throwing mattresses together the night before they're coming. Like, I just don't understand how you be so stupid, and to be honest with you the whole idea of just having a party. I thought was incredibly dumb like you would have been fun. It would have been legendary. And that was the problem with this is that he was so caught up in the idea of throwing this unbelievable party. That'll be talked about for ages and ages, and he had the ego that he wanted to do it. The fact was he had a pretty good idea with the fire app. Whole idea for the for the party was to bring exposure to the app the app, I thought was a really innovative. There was nobody else doing it. You said athlete, you could look SARS would have made money so steady blew it all by China, stroke, his ego. It was other people doing it. Still other people doing it. 202 Dave reach out to you was that Susie. Oh nice. Like, he's I t h ceremony is suggested it is. But they're making it right now. Because their platform.

"You know, because I think that the politics of the current Hungarian Goldman's is not the same. As we usually follow in the European Union, Hungarian prime minister announced the t would like to build an ill Lieber democracy I in so that we need up. We dont need illiberal democracies. We need the usual European addition of libra democracy and other side, I'm Hungarian. And I would like to see Hungary in the European Union. And if you are following the liberal democracy is something against the fundamental values in Phnom of the European Union. So my vote in favor of this report is going to help for Hungary to come back to the European family, but does it really because you look at how amnesty or ban the victim or abandoned prime minister? What he is saying about this decision in the European parliament that he sang. That this is this does not respect the Hungarian nation. He says that you think, you know better than the Hungarian people, what the Hungarian people need. He says that this is that they're trying to use extortion against Hungary who is only trying to defend its borders against illegal immigration and protect. Its writes, this kind of language, I'm sure plays well in Hungary where people do not want to see an outside body dictate what the law should be in their country. Is that not the case close to sling, which of the prime minister has many supporters in Hungary in Hungarian society. But I would like to make very clear this report, it is nothing to do with Hungary. It's not an attack against Hungary. This is the critics of the politics of the Hungarian government. But on the other side, you know, it's it's really true what you mentioned. The dang it in prime minister received very Strang. Migration policy is a lot of support in Hungary, but you know, you mentioned he's that to defend Hungary against Ilia migration. I have to call because we do not have illegal migration behave refugees from different parts of diverse. And I saw this very important role of as a very important issue to help for the Richard, the refugees who are fleeing from war and. And find I was using his language, their translation of his language. I guess my question is is that this report is good for Mr. Orban isn't it? I mean, he this gives him a platform to say that he's defending Hungarian values, and that the the European parliament is trying to impose its will. Of course you can use it in his adventures in front really. But you know, when to decide, politics is not only nationally should is international European issue and just know Mr. orb has a very, very big troubles in his political family. In the European parliament, the European people party because many more than hundred members of the European people party voted in favor of the of this report. This European People's Party block of which prime minister Orban's Fidesz party is as a member. Some prominent members of that group have said, no, he that Mr. Obama's wrong. They have voted in favor of this of this article seven proceeding, but an awful lot of members of the European parliament voted against the sanction. So it looks like he has a lot of support in the European parliament doesn't it actually. So he has some supporters. That's right. But you know, the main point is the he's supporters in the European parliament, but also in the European politics, people belonging to different far-right political parties and movements. Like what I sent in Italy, the Italian minister of interior MRs Salvini or Mr Farage from the United Kingdom is you have right? He has some supporters, but I in so still the, this is the minority in Europe and in the European politics. And I switch very important to emphasize that the traditional center, right political movements are against the far right politics and the far right politics of Mr. orb on this proceeding. If this article. Kevin could take very long time to have any effect or to come into play. So in the meantime, what happens in Hungary? Do you see any political pressure being put on the store? Bannon his party by virtue of this article, seven being being launched this is just today voting took place today. So it's a very short time. But of course, the opposition parties in Hungary and my Pontios. Well, we've been trying to explain for the people that this is a very decisive moment in the European politics that it is a clear sign of that..

"It's about the aftermath after commodious reasons election, yes, owned the twenty ninth of July. We've had the elections in commodious and it was a one horse race because the opposition basically was either driven out of the country were arrested. And so therefore quite interesting, dynamic, slow in a couple of countries in southeast Asia in other places in the Middle East, for instance, as well. We, of course, by now know about these semi permanent ink that's being used to curing elections. Basically people dip their finger into the ink to basically show that they have been that they basically voted. And so that has been used by the CPI Komodo. People are the only party I actually ran into these elections to basically force people to a vote on their behalf or in support of them. And so quite interesting, these tool to actually show that basically people have voted has now been turned into a form of coercion and kumbaya. These mentions winning was these past for the Cambodian People's Party. Despite claims of eighty two percent voter turnout. This long party has a serious problem with ledge Timothy, how do you do you think about us? Yes. So precisely as I mentioned before because it was a one horse race. They can't really say if now and gain legitimacy through this recent election. So they're basically now had to say, but look, we've really at a very high turnout voter turnout was eighty two percent compared to sixty nine percent two dozen thirteen, which is interesting sexually. When new look as many other countries where we have been seeing dot c. elections often the turnout each. Is higher? Yes, absolutely. Because people are cores. I mean, there's a great story here or a great story. There's a somewhat sad Anik about a woman who basically says that she was told if she should come back to work clean fingered as she says, she will basically her salary cut. And so basically they very good at mobilizing people with various hurt of dubious means. Of course, Mike, let's continue with the Straits Times which has a story on the Indonesian courts banning militants croup GED and others links to ISIS. Yes. So last week or just about two days ago, the government of Indonesia, band Jemma and cheroots Dowa which is basically group that was established in two dozen fourteen as sort of vehicle for people that want to go and fight in Syria to organize it meet. And then in the last couple of weeks, that group has been associated with these terrible and suicide attacks entire families base. Blew themselves up in churches across Indonesia, fathers mothers and their children. And so the government has now banned this group which will allow Danish security apparatus to basically arrest people that they think are affiliated, which AAD confiscate their assets and make it easier to basically do something about this most recent sort of manifestation of of radicalism in Indonesia, to which extent will this end radicalization in Indonesia, what you think? I don't think it's going to be very successful because I mean, while this is a group that has unified two different, very diverse kind of groups of of radicals. I mean, part of that network has to, as we know the so-called Darul Islam network, which really goes back to the nineteen forties and has survived wave. So for pressure in by the security apparatus. And, and so I think this is, is you know, sort of more of a symbolic kind of way of doing something about the problem without really getting h. roots. Let's continue with Nikkei Asian review up next, which which runs a story about the new government in Malaysia and and issues it may be facing. Right? So the all new government under mart here basically is trying to look fresh and bring a new approach to politics. And so they have made all sorts of policy announcements, announcements over the last couple of months and have however, rarely followed up that these policy announcement. And so this is now created all sorts of confusion amongst people in Malaysia, but then also foreign governments and investors. For instance, martyrs promised to abolish very unpopular goods and services tax that she s t, it's actually on clear. He will actually replace..
