Chicago Officials Concerned About 'Bubble Trouble', Urge People To Be Selective About Social Circle Amid Pandemic
"Top health officials concerned about people expanding their bubbles as they enjoy more relaxed rules and the pandemic world. The story this morning from W. BBM political editor Craig Della more Dr Allison are witty, Chicago's public health commissioner says people have developed what she calls there Bubbles. Those close family and friends, you know, have been taking all the cove in 19 precautions, but the restrictions have loosened. The problem is As those people start to be looser with their interactions, they're bringing risk into the bubble into the household into the friend group. This, the commissioner says, is when those feelings of safety can betray you. People are one day hanging out with a group of 5 to 10 people in the next day in a different group of 5 to 10 people in the next day, a different group provides 10 people. And throughout all of that, you're bringing that risk potentially sort of back into what people had previously perceived as sort of a day for empire. So, the doctor says, Avoid the bubble trouble and keep your circles tight.
Covid missteps in the UK
"Been seven months in sparse Johnson's conservative scored the best Tory parliamentary majority since the me nine thousand nine hundred. And yet outsiders well, that could be forgiven for thinking that it was Jeremy Corbyn Socialism. That's triumphed. You think about it in response to the Cova crisis, the size and scope of the British state. Well, that's increased dramatically, and what's being called, a radical woke minority that continues to march through British institutions for more on Boris and British politics. Let's turn to is a bill oak shop. She's a former political editor at the Sunday Times I started by asking bill about the state of Boris Johnson's premiership. I think that it is. Fair to say that Boris Johnson's. Administration has. Hit a really difficult patch and you know. Isn't it extrordinary when he achieved? An an unbelievable majority you know against all expectations, and really they only had a few weeks in which to relish that feeling of trial before the corona virus hits, and the handling of the pandemic has been a very widely criticized. You know we have ended up. I think we have the surge worst gas rate in the world from from Carina and his being one u-turn after another. We've got another one today in the only on Sunday at one of our leading cabinet ministers said that it would not be compulsory to wear face masks and short, and now we all told the we'll be illegal requirement, and that is very characteristic old the government's approach to this crisis. They've been too late. To make required changes, you know that has gizzard they have you turned, and of course not help by. The Prime Minister himself was hit very very hard by the virus, and to Cologne time to get back on his feet. You know this is a he. He was in a life, threatening position and the government woes consequentially very weakened for a period. You mentioned that the Johnson government is moving to make these face masks for shoppers mandatory I. THINK THEY FACE A. Hundred pound fine if they gotta shops without Feis mosques, but at the same time on way told the Britain is slowly getting back to its old self that businesses either reopened and travel restrictions. Lifting does all this main? The Brits are to learn to leave covid nineteen I think we have to learn to live with covid nineteen and I would say we should have had begun learning that lot quicker. You know the UK at the moment is a real place. Contrast I live in Oxfordshire about seventy miles from London, and for the first time last week I decided to get the train into loans, and I have been driving list time and I basically had to show the driven train in both directions. I was traveling at what would normally be rush hour peak time going in in the morning and I had the whole carriage, and the won't be on that myself, so I will. Say Small, but there's no need for face off. You've got your exclusive carriage. And Central. Is Much the same. It's a dead zone and yet here in the world's where where I call home and we can mind. It'll town which luckily. was absolutely housing. The big AUDEN's with school. There were a lot of people out in the bounce. So you know we have a real mix pitcher going on by the way, remember that the schools on back. You know this is an extraordinary situation. You know we've got people in big Ordonez in restaurants are. Our children are still not back in school by large. The counterargument to not having that lockdown during April, and my is that you might have seen far more deaths in in Britain it's. It's very lucky for the government that however bad things get. They will always be able to say it would be much worse if we hadn't done. X Y, or said they won't be able to cruise otherwise politically. That is something that they can always fall back on, but I think that all the evidence now shows that it was a big mistake to allow tens of thousands of people every week to continue pouring into the country from some of the worst hit areas overseas. Coming into Heathrow without any checks or any corentin or any restriction. For weeks, so then I mean for months discontinued, and then very belatedly off to the media, worst of the crisis passed, the government changed tack, and and suddenly entered used quarantine measures, but not before all these people had come in and helped increase of viral late

You mustn't lower yourself for men around you. You must show him what a strong woman looks like
"Jamile is not afraid to call out body, shaming and diet culture. When she's not filming. The actor and activists can be found sparking lively online debates about toxic beauty standards. The social media account of her I wake campaign has more than nine hundred forty eight thousand followers. In this episode, Dare I say. Jamila spoke to Harper's Bazaar's political editor. Jennifer Ashley Right on top of curated Harper's bazaar's Politics Coverage Jennifer has written history books about fearless woman in history, deadly clothing items and bad historical breakups, Jennifer and Jamila want free social, an mainstream media, toxic masculinity and body and image shaming. They are women who dare. Jamila I'm so excited to be talking to you. Probably know. I, feel like it's important to make it clear that toxic masculinity is not all masculine behavior. Example that I think is somewhat helpful is that it's like saying I don't like burnt toast. That doesn't mean I dislike all toast that means I don't like toast when it's burnt and displace ripple to most people. And I know that means that we have to define what toxic masculinity is and social series have some very different definitions. Since the term was first coined I think in the nineteen eighties by a man who wanted men to get back in touch with their more masculine side by by doing drum circles. It's evolved a bit since then, but in my mind, it's probably fair to say that it is a vision of masculinity that. Dominance over everyone else whether it's women or gender, non conforming people or men who might appear weaker in some way, and that's a vision of masculinity that allows for violence for sexual harassment for tremendous cruelty in all manner of forms think. Stairs women. And I. I think that that feels. Makes People want to suppress them and empower them for what they recognize empowered, because a lot of men are very afraid of our politics. If you think about how extrordinary we always and I think sometimes then become faith that they are. Redundant beyond feed and that we need them, and they recognize that that is. within relationships so within our lives, and so therefore they are afraid of and try to. Pressure or undermine or balloon us into submission? And that feels like something that we're experiencing a tremendous amount of right now. I feel like I've been surprised in kind of terrified by the men who are very young who love people like Donald Trump who, to is kind of the living embodiment of toxic masculinity, just someone who views every human interaction as a battle for dominance, things of people, only in terms of winners and losers, views, women mostly as physical objects to be owned and one and not someone who he's. You know human interaction as a given. Take you know away that both people can benefit so I'm I'm wondering why right now we seem to be living in a moment where been seem to love the idea of toxic masculinity and not men, who I necessarily think would reap the benefits of toxic masculinity. It's insecurity that makes you feel the need to hugely press your masculinity of other people what you deemed to be Masculinity I. think that you maybe happened out of your, and then whatever masculinity is to use and definitely you feel the need to exaggerate it to other people and. And Demand you know I think they're trying to prove something. The mine does protest too much. And I think again stems from CEO and I think about fair. That's the basic now because the Internet has given a connection. Women because they're able to tell stories, and we are able to help one another story. The whereabouts allowed to see what's going on across the world and I think we divided and conquered anymore. We have this communication line that brings us all together as one and I think that if you look at the fact that there are more women who CEO's, we have female world for the first time women and fighting back, women are becoming meeting voices publishing the predominantly female industry now, and this is where we are receiving books from, and we haven't done. Many female journalists, and there are high pay highly paid actresses women on the full list and female billionaires. It is a time where it feels like the whatever they have to hold that they had the weld. Fine picking between nothing, and so that is making them I believe double down now more than ever, because I can't remember if he said it that someone said that to the privileged equality feels like oppression.

U.S. Economy Slumped in First Quarter: Live Updates
"And the economic toll has hit so suddenly that it is hard to compare directly with anything in memory this morning the commerce department shows how quickly the economy has crashed and the new NPR poll shows how widely the painting is sprint NPR chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley is with us along with NPR senior political editor and correspondent to medical Montanaro gentleman good morning to you both good morning morning Steve and we are all properly distant in our own homes Scott how bad is the GDP number likely to be for the first quarter what we learned today forecasters expect the GDP report this one will show the US economy shrank during the first three months of the year for the first time in six years and worse that's all because of the corona virus for the first two and a half months of the year the economy is actually chugging along at a steady if not spectacular pace but then we got to the middle of March and there was a sharp and sudden downturn that's of course when restaurants and retail shops all over the country store to close their doors tens of millions of Americans were ordered to stay home been hers on who is an economist with IHS Markit says that triggered a sharp decline in consumer spending and that alone was enough to erase whatever gross income before whenever you have the entire country changing behavior at one time in a way that would be suspending it certainly enough to wipe out any gains that we saw earlier in the year her son is expecting that the first quarter growth declined at an annual pace of almost five percent and some forecasters expect even bigger number I'm just trying to think through the math two months two and a half months of pretty good growth and then just two weeks everything being stopped and the stoppage is so bad that the total is down sharply that makes me worry about the second quarter that we're in now where things are going to be stopped for a whole lot longer yeah that's what's kind of scary just half a month of hunkering down sent the economy into reverse what happened this quarter when we're looking at you know a full month in some parts the quarter of more than that in other parts of the country economists expect to see a really deep contraction in the second quarter when those numbers come out in the summer her is not expected to show the economy shrinking at an annual pace of thirty seven percent between April and June you know in just the last five weeks we've seen some twenty six million people are joining the unemployment rolls millions more could be added to that list before we're done this is all shaping up to be the deepest recession in the US since the nineteen thirties okay so those are the overall numbers what do they mean for individuals we have some clues about that from an NPR PBS newshour Marist poll and Domenico what does it say on sticking a pretty harsh toll on most people fifty percent of Americans say they've either been laid off or lost hours at their job because of it that's up from just eighteen percent a month ago and the pandemic is having a harsher financial impact on people of color people without a college degree younger people and those making less than fifty thousand dollars a year Steve let me stop there for a second because you just said fifty percent which is a mind blowing figure half of Americans have you lost a job or lost some kind of pay lost part of their paycheck and you're telling me in certain groups it's even worse than that worse than fifty percent absolutely we're talking about household here so at least fifty percent of Americans or fifty percent Americans have been touched by this and you know Americans are large largely pretty cautious also though about re opening too quickly you would think people would want to you know open much faster if they're being affected economically but eighty percent or more of Americans are saying that they do not want schools restaurants are large sporting events to start taking place again as normal until there is further testing two thirds say they don't want us to physically go back to work without widespread testing but a majority of Republicans say it's time to get back to work so there is a partisan difference here and some of these findings in the way people view your vents up to now as always there are some partisan findings in in a lot of these numbers well what do voters think of the president's handling of the economy in this election year well about forty four percent of trump's approve of trump's handling of the pandemic is pretty similar to what his overall approval has been we talk about this partisan splits you've got Democrats and independents disapproving and Republicans largely very strongly approving of the job the president's been doing on current virus most people think the other governors are doing a far better jobs in the present and handling corona virus by two to one margin and overall they're huge gender and educational divides on how trump's handling it men approve of how trump is dealing with it women overwhelmingly disapprove if you have a college degree you overwhelmingly disapprove if you don't you do approve of the job he's doing I think it's slightly higher marks for his handling of the economy half still approving of the job he's doing on that but I have to say it's interesting when you look at the twenty twenty election the presidential election more Americans think Joe Biden the democratic the presumptive democratic nominee would do a better job handling both of those things I just have to observe also after nine eleven George W. bush also polarizing president had something like a ninety percent approval rating for a little while because of his handling of the crisis in here the president has forty four percent but we are now moving toward a new phase where academies might begin to re open at least a little bit in certain states what might that recovery look like Scott Horsley you know the commerce department numbers look backwards not forwards but the kind of Mr certainly trying to figure out what's ahead economist her son's been looking at industries like airlines and restaurants which have been hit so hard by this pandemic there's really nowhere to go but up traffic is down ninety five percent from year ago levels seated diners from OpenTable is down a hundred percent you can't go lower than that you know all these indicators are a really bad right now at some point they'll turn we'll just have to keep an eye on on when that happens best case scenario if the economy starts to stabilize this summer and then we begin to see a rebound later in the year but it depends you know if there's a big danger but the second wave of infections that requires another round of lockdowns then I guess we have to ask if by then we've found measures to get businesses open and keep them open safely and safely enough that consumers would think that it's safe to go out and shop or go to the restaurant or anything else that's
Senior House Democrat Clyburn endorses Biden for president
"And as expected former vice president Joe Biden landed a key endorsement today from the most influential black democratic leader in South Carolina congressman Jim Clyburn the house majority whip he told here and now's Tanya mostly why he's supporting the former vice president in south Carolina's democratic primary on Saturday Joe to me has the background and experiences affect or need it at this particular time in our history can you tell me more on that and you referred to him as Joe because you all have known each other for quite a long time yes yes but frankly I'm mostly cold and vice president of this week started going in jail for some strange reason but temperamentally I think he's with the country needs today is one the one thing they have preparation there's something else to help determine I think they're a lot good smart people who are good politicians but can't remember they ought not be president and fix when it comes to temperament I thank Biden has with the text button will need the support of black voters in South Carolina if he's going to win that state and keep his campaign life which he says he will do Biden told CBS after the debate that it's enough if he wins by just one point the medical Montero NPR senior political editor and correspondent is here to Monica how do you thing by then looked after last night's debate and some of your overall thoughts well first of all listening to that interview I'm really struck by Jim Clyburn saying that temperamentally Joe Biden is best to be president while some others are not and I don't think he's just referring to president trump you know I know a lot of Democrats think president trump obviously is not temperamentally fit but you know there's a lot that goes into I had a I had somebody who's close to Clyburn tell me a couple days ago before we knew who he was gonna endorse that he just doesn't think Bernie Sanders is the right person to run he doesn't think that he would help in the house he's very cautious about what he would mean up and down the ballot so that's a pretty important sort of five Z. Li thing to read about what he thinks about Bernie Sanders in my opinion that's one to as far as the debate goes on this is probably the best twenty four hours Joe Biden's hadn't quite some time in this campaign he has you know gotten beaten up over the last several weeks by his own doing because of finishing so poorly in Iowa and New Hampshire he had promised that he could do well with white working class voters that didn't turn out to be the case he said he could do well with voters of color well he didn't do well with Latino voters in Nevada he got walloped with Latinos by Bernie Sanders and he promised he could do well with black voters what he won black voters in Nevada narrowly he had a pretty good debate last night and he is staking it all on South Carolina needs to win here right to propel him into super Tuesday where half the states have significant learning
New UK government brings change and uncertainty
"Week's UK general election saw. Boris Johnson. Lead the Conservative Party to its biggest victory in over thirty years instantly the value of the pound and UK case stocks jumped now that election excitement has died down. We take a look at what to expect from the new government here to discuss this with me on George Polka political editor and Adam. Sampson had a foster. Let's start with brexit given them get brexit done John was the Tory campaign slogan will the UK believing the E. U. at the end of January. And what will that actually mean George. Well certainly expectation is that person will leave on the thirty first of January and the brexit done slogan Surf Bars Johnson extremely well in the campaign captured. I think the mood of the country that whether you're on the remain all the leave side of the debate. There was a bit of a sense that the three and a half years of Political Guinea since the referendum result how to redrawn an end and he's now gone native seat majority which squirrel allow him to deliver his withdrawal bill and to complete the first stage. And it's important to stress the first stage of Brexit on the thirty first of January then of course becomes much more uncomplicated and the real negotiation which is about the future relationship with future trading relationship between Britain and the EU and some people predict that will be even harder and potentially messier and the first part so when will Britain finally leave the EU. In that case well we legally leave on the thirty first of January but then the question is at at. What point do we leave the so-called transition period the standstill arrangement where effectively Britain remains part the same issue trading system under the European Court of Justice? And all the rest of it until a final final agreement is in place now. Boris Johnson has said this week that he will leave on the thirty first of December. Twenty twenty come. What May and indeed he's GonNa put legislation or claws into his withdrawal bill? The will make illegal him to seek an extension of the transition period beyond December. Twenty twenty now. Lots of people doubt whether a really serious trade deal negotiated in such a short space of time. I suspect if there is a trade deal in place by that point it will be very thin one mainly covering goods mainly covering things tariffs and quotas but not fully fledged future relationship that we've been promised and then the second question is if boss Johnson's determined have this new relationship in place on the first of January twenty twenty one. Is it practically possible to have all the systems in place including a new custom system. New checks new border posts a new immigration system potentially all within the space of twelve months. I think that makes an heroic assumption about the ability of white small businesses to make that kind of big adaptations short space of time. And could this also be a rocky time for British unity. The SMP in Scotland is pushing for a second referendum on Scottish independence and Northern Ireland's highlands position could become more precarious as it becomes the border between the EU and the UK. Will indeed. I mean that's one of the ironies of this whole brexit process. Assessed that in taking out of the European Union is Boris Johnson unst itching the United Kingdom of course Scotland and Northern Ireland both very strongly to remain part of the European Union. The fact that there's a resentment north of the border in Scotland about Brexit has created a situation where forty eighth out of the fifty nine seats in Scotland went to the Scottish National Party which wants a second independence referendum in Scotland. Boris Johnson said no so far. But it doesn't take that much. Imagination to concede that Scotland could become a bit like Catalonia with with a grievance festering people demanding the right to have another say on their future and in the case of Northern Ireland. Is You mentioned. Schoener the deal that Boris Johnson struck will leave Northern Ireland effectively within the economic space of the European Union in the customs union but name and the single market therefore the border between the mainland of Great Britain and Northern Island. For the first time and again you know people in Northern Ireland we'll be looking to Dublin or Brussels to protect their interests. SARS the economy's concerned rather than London. It's obvious obvious. That's unraveling the unions certain extent. Boris Johnson calls himself the Minister of the Union that so tightly gave himself after became prime minister. But that's going to be a big job for him and number ten to try to keep the Union of the UK together. Also the same even European Union now the conservative manifesto sketched out plans for constitutional institutional change. So what differences. Can we expect to see well a slightly strange page forty eight which is quite slight infamy in In politics where it talks about a whole range of constitutional changes whether it's the future of the House of Lords or the relationship between parliament and the Supreme Court which of of course famously became very heavily involved in British politics in the autumn and stop Boris Johnson closing down parliament's at a crucial moment in the brexit process. So there's lots of unspoken unspoken intent there about doing something about changing the system. If you like and Boris Johnson's chief advisor Dominic Cummings is basically a revolutionary who thinks the British. The system is bust. He thinks that the Brexit vote illustrated the distance that a grown up between many parts of the UK left behind person if you like 'em the elites that run the country whether it's in the media or the courts or the politicians and he wants to turn it on its head now part gets in. This mission is an open question. That's going to be a review of constitutional setup up in the country which will take at least a year. It'll be interesting to see how far postal prepared to go down that route. But certainly there's a real energy and almost revolutionary zeal about the people around Boris Johnson number ten and within government. A new business department and changes to foreign aid are on the cards. What are these going to look like well? That's the other thing that's Dominic Cummings. Mister Johnson's advisor wants to do. He previously worked as an adviser in whites-only thinks that basically the British civil services Pretty hopeless he thinks they they tolerate failure. There's lots of blame passing no reward for imaginative thinking and he wants to turn the British system on its head as well and one of the things that traditionally percents proud of his value has a permanent civil service which carries on doing the job. Even when there's a change of government very different of course to the American system where you have a complete sea change in Washington every four years potentially but Dominic Cummings said in the past. He thinks that's civil. Servants should be fight if they do about Joplin generally for life at the moment and he's also talking about a a big change in the number of government departments. So you mentioned that two of the most interesting ones. One is the idea of folding into the Foreign Office the Department of International Development which has a very big budget thirteen in billion pounds burst Johnson. Things could be better deployed inside. The Foreign Office is part of a wider global Britain foreign policy and business policy on the other one is the idea of turning the business department much bigger department covering international trade for example almost like a department of economic affairs pushing this agenda. That boss Johnson has trying finds a push wealth out of the prosper southeast of the UK out to the North and the Midlands. Now if I can turn to you Adam how has the business community reacted into this conservative. Victory sure so business. Confidence was very very subdued for a while for a year and a half in the run-up to this election over brexit over the gridlock. So I I think. The community breathed a collective sigh of relief. I least that Boris Johnson has a decisive victory. He has a majority he can push things through a lot of business. Leaders leaders reason the phrase clarity on policy that kind of thing it also averts a no deal outcome at least in the short term over the next several months. I think that was all seen as as a positive however I think there are many longer term doubts as far as what this is going to look like George. You mentioned earlier that it's very unclear as to whether there's going to be another cliff edge brexit in in a few months from now so I think well people are cautiously optimistic in the business community at the moment. There's a lot of doubts about what this looks like in the long run. So so what will the new government mean for business. Can we expect to see a tidal wave of investment after Brexit as Boris Johnson has promised so kind of said there there may be a short-term boost in investment. That just been like you said pent up. You know in the months of gridlock and over brexit concerns and it may be that boost growth in the short run as well. Maybe over the next few quarters early next year but again there's a lot of doubt as to what exactly the economy looks like go into the end of next year whether we have a rerun of exactly this drama that we saw over the past few months taking place again and there's just the economic forecast is shrouded in doubt at the moment I would say and what has been the reaction to the election in the markets so the mercury actions been quite interesting sterling. Shot up more than two percent after the exit poll on Thursday. They night a really big rise for a currency like the pound. The next day you K- markets were up substantially especially domestic facing stock so homebuilders her certain banks companies. That were at risk of nationalization from Jeremy Corbin's plans but what we've seen after that is a significant fall back in the pound found in fact the pounds now given up all of its gains from after the election outcome over those doubts about what exactly brexit's going to look like and I think specifically this I did there may be a cliff. Edge Breaks Leumi now at the end of two thousand twenty and Just you know these persistent doubts about what Boris Johnson's political plans will be. We still have uncertainty going forward. It looks like it seems like there's deep uncertainty among investors and business executives. Well thanks George and thank you Adam and thank you for

UK to publish no-deal plans as gloom surrounds Brexit talks
"Matter how many the articles you read and no matter how many days go by with some new piece of news that confuses you even more it's still really hard to sound smart about brexit it's it's unbelievable so back in March when brexit was imminent and the prime minister was in some trouble we did a brexit episode and now Brexit is imminent again and the prime minister is in some trouble so we're going to try to do another brexit episode and and here is just a shining example of how Boris Johnson the Prime Minister of of the United Kingdom is in some trouble he was asked I guess is probably like three weeks ago now maybe longer perhaps by reporter if you could promise the British public he would not ask for another delay another extension of Brexit Britain leaving the European Union here is his answer I'd rather be dead in a ditch so Boris Johnson is not dead he is not in a ditch brexit is still imminent and thus we are here yes yes we are here and I liked that the last time we talked about it in the prime minister was in trouble totally different prime minister by the way so yes exit part to the Brexit Ding the sequel I think I think a Jaren is appropriate here because it is an ongoing brexit the brexit so we brought on the great news about getting to cover this ongoing basis is that we get to bring back our new favorite correspondent on this and other topics whereas Atkins who hosts the BBC news show called outside I do too nice to be back has things yes thanks for coming back there good mongering didn't when you asked me to come in today today of all day he's because I mean magical right I was thinking us just walking towards the studio had hundreds of days you could have picked across the last few two years and really you could make an argument a decent argument that today the relationship between the UK and its European partners is more fragile is more uncertain than it's been since the end of the Second World War and if that seems hyperbolic is really not the last twenty four hours of cranked it up two notches that we didn't even really no existed it's a bit like in spinal tap but they say turn up to eleven we're kind of at that stage now all right we'll tell us tell us why what happens okay. Well the do things have happened at the context of all of this is that we are charging towards October thirty first this is the brexit deadline this is brexit is scheduled to happen and unless the UK requests an extension and it hasn't unless the E. U. says yes that request that is when bricks it's going to happen before that you've got a European Union summit takes place next week Thursday Friday October the seventeenth and eighteenth it's widely accepted that if there is no agreement between the UK and the EU on how the UK is going to leave well that's really the last chance saloon the reason things of cranked up in the last twenty four hours is that last night the political editor of The Spectator magazine applets magazine published a lengthy message from inside number ten detailing their view of the situation and it is like no other political memory we've seen it says negotiations will probably end this week that preferential treatment in the future we'll go to European countries deemed to be helpful at the moment it saying if the deal collapses this week that's eight it talks about plans to scupper any effort to stop a no deal brexit at the end of the month and perhaps most astonishing of all it says any countries supporting a delay in bricks by that they mean some of the other you members they'll be seen as hostile in appearance in UK politics so this is incendary so we all digest that overnight and we're thinking my goodness and then is the morning unfolds which hold the primary Mr Boris Johnson has spoken to Angle Merckel Chancellor of Germany and then number ten briefs that this is going absolutely terribly the essentially it's now impulse Volta get a deal so that in itself is huge but then the whole European press corps or a lot of it starts going that doesn't sound like the kind of thing the Angler WHO would say and so we now have this huge fight going on between lots of people saying that doesn't sound right a number ten saying this is how this phone call win but whether one what is right or the other is right the fact of the matter is it's being seen as a briefing war by number ten on the most important country in the European Union and as such things are beginning to crumble in a way that we've not seen in the last three years of the brexit process wow so so so we are no strangers the different interpretations of phone call readouts between leaders of countries over here so so there's that but but look isn't there a law on the books that says there will not be a no deal brexit didn't parliament passed that like two weeks ago or whatever it was it did and let me give you another in yet from today because just the last twenty four hours gives me enough to make a number of podcast with frankly Michael go one of the most senior figures in the League campaign in twenty sixty nine cabinet minister with responsibility for preparing for no deal brexit no deal brexit meaning the UK leaves with absolutely no arrangements in place with the European Union as to what happens next Michael Gov just a few hours ago standing up in the House of Commons briefing parliament briefing members of parliament the government's preparations for no deal brexit when he and everyone else ooh sitting on those famous green leather benches knows that a few weeks ago Element Pasta law saying you can't do a no deal brexit the law says if you reach October nineteen the day after that EU summit and you don't have a deal the prime minister the must send a letter asking for an extension so you have a law in place which says that's GonNa Happen You have a prime minister says I won't be requesting that request at extension and you have a cabinet minister briefing parliament on something which the law says can happen and you have a senior number ten source sending out an extended briefing last night said we've got lots of plans to get around this law and as such everyone is thinking my goodness no deal between the UK and EU looks pretty likely bearing in mind how things are going this week so what on earth happens when we reach October the nineteenth and no one has any idea I mean I feel slightly yeah I feel slightly speechless I confess how where do we even start here like how unprecedented is it at this point for the Prime Minister and his administration to essentially be saying we intend to ignore this law or as as the Guardian put it sidestep or frustrate this law well you know the the prime minister is saying two things which look difficult to square he saying I will not request an attention though it's widely accepted in the end in extension is reasonably likely although I'm a hosted fourt- fourteen saying that but at the moment and extension looks likely you have a prime minister saying look weren't requested and you have a law which says you have to request it if you get to October the nineteenth now that the fact that we don't have any clarity on that is certainly extrordinary but let's just step back here mauleon remember the context this is a prime minister who's already been found to unlawfully suspended parliament fi the biased court in the land the Supreme Court and who is also found by the quarter sessions in Edinburgh accord a rung down from the Supreme Court to have essentially lied to the Queen about the reasons that he's suspended parliament so already into unchartered territory we in uncharted territory for for some time the point here is that the prime minister and his allies say of course they respect the rule of law but they reiterate they will ask for an extension and until they allow that to play out we can't really know Oh what they're planning to do and this now infamous memo which is dominating the news or it certainly was until about five other things happened says quite explicit Louis we've got plans to not follow this law but at the same time of course we're not gonNa tell you though is because that might affect our ability to carry out these plans legally same pace let me ask you a question the Roz and it goes like this if I am a business person in the United Kingdom facing the prospect of not literally not knowing what's going to happen uh-huh or if I'm a consumer right why am I not stockpiling goods taking all my money out of the bank shoving it under my mattress and bracing for Armageddon wells some people are not the majority of people but some people are doing some stockpiling I think the reason that more people on stockpiled thing is because there's still a belief the in the end no deals not gonNA happen and that belief is rooted in two things one the fact everyone knows if the UK requests in extension the e very very likely to accept it so there's always Latin root and Barry Mind Parliament has voted on a law which achieve MP's things locks in the fact that no deal brexit cannot happen so for those two reasons the law that was recently passed and the E. U.'s position think a lot of people think will between those two things a no deal brexit is not particularly likely however in the background you do have a situation nations with the prime minister saying I consider this a viable option will happen with Theresa may was she started off saying no deal is better than a bad deal but by the end of the negotiations was essentially ruling out a no deal brexit and that's a big difference between Theresa May and Boris Johnson in the end she turned away from that option at the moment he's definitely not turning away from that option but I would add more broadly when it comes to businesses everyone wants certainty whoever whichever side of the brexit argument there on the overwhelming sentiment from businesses speak to the BBC's Mike Goodness please just tell us what's going on the bad news for them is they may not yeah
News Brief: Presidential Debate, EPA Changes Clean Water Rules
"Now we know what it looks and sounds like when all the Democratic presidential contenders share the same stage that's right the ten leading leading candidates met in Houston Texas Joe Biden who's been leading in the polls stood near the centre. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders stood to either side. Now it'd be hard to say that anybody decisively one debate so many months before actual voting but this event did seem to highlight genuine differences among Democrats including those three the at center stage. What were the differences well? NPR POLITICAL REPORTER ASTHMA Hollywood is in Houston Good Morning Aspe- and our senior political editor and correspondent Dominica Montinaro was watching Ching to Dominica Good morning to you and let's start with you Dominica. What did you see is? Those candidates spoke well. I mean you know the big thing here is that this was the strongest debate eight at least to start for Joe. Biden was crisper than he's been. He seemed ready to go on the attack but he also got some help early on and that's a big part of why is able to do better from amy cloche are the senator from Minnesota. She really decided to Kinda hug the moderate lane and seemed to put a floor under Biden in didn't wind up turning turning into a pylon like it has an other debates pylon Joe Biden and instead there was this division in the Democratic Party was several candidates on either side and asthma something in close to I I think close to half an hour of disagreements on a single big issue healthcare that's right and we've seen other healthcare debates in the first chew debates but what I think is unique about this. One is at the focus of the healthcare conversation for much of this campaign cycle has been concentrated on the progressive left specifically around around Bernie Sanders Medicare for all plan last night. Biden was much more aggressive in defending his ideas around healthcare and I want you to take a listen to specific bite of what he had to say. I think I know that the senator says she's for Bernie Yeah. I'm for Barack. I think the obamacare worked. I think the way we added to it replace everything that's been cut at a public option guarantee that everyone will be able to have affordable assurance. I guess we should clarify. Senator says she's for Bernie. He's he's referring to Elizabeth. Elizabeth Warren yes exactly and you know the Biden. Campaign sees this argument as a clear strength for him in war and world and people sort of laugh at the idea that health insurance people like their health insurance company. They'll say people like their doctor. They like their nurse and Massachusetts. Senator doesn't really want to take the bait in specifically wind Biden is pushing around this idea of taxes and costs which is something we saw last night. They feel like that's an intellectually dishonest honest argument about whether or not taxes on the middle class will go up the thing that really you ought to look at total cost but I would say look a lot of voters aren't going to get that distinction between between costs and and taxes kind of lost in the details what they're essentially acknowledging your taxes would go up aren't they but they're saying your other cost your other healthcare costs would go down in many cases so we've got Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren favouring Medicare for all but as Dominica mentioned Joe Biden was not the only person saying wait but let's do something a little more a little more moderate here and Dominica just mentioned actually specifically Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar who defended many times this idea of healthcare Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has made a point of saying he wrote the Damn Bill around Medicare for all so he knows that people are mischaracterizing it well. Here's what Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar had to say about that while Bernie wrote the bill I read the bill and on page eight age eight of the bill. It says that we will no longer have private insurance as we know it. I don't think that's a bold idea. I think it's it's a bad idea and this idea of eliminating choice is something we also heard from south. Bend Indiana me or Buddha judge who tied his idea his plan called a medicare for all who want it and basically he says that you should trust the American voters to do what they want to have the sense to choose what they opt for okay so quite substantive debate bait there. Maybe not a lot that was new but people could sit there and look at the differences between the candidates. Now we mentioned that there were ten Democrats on stage but sometimes it seemed seemed almost like there were eleven. Let's listen I WANNA give credit I to Barack Obama for really bringing us this far. We we all know huge debt to President Obama who fundamentally transformed healthcare in America and of course we owe a debt of gratitude to President Barack Obama Dominica at sounds like President Obama had a pretty good bay. It's quite a difference from what we've heard in past debates when they've been pretty critical of Obama's tenure as not progressive aggressive enough of those newly warm feelings tell me they recognize Biden still in the lead and just how important older black voters who've been really supporting Biden are to who wins this nomination. I mean President Obama is still very popular within the Democratic Party and a lot of voters who we've talked to on the campaign trail sorta chafed at this idea that there were sort of dismissing him especially with President trump in the White House. They're saying well. How far do they want to go? we kind of liked to what President Obama had to do. I guess we should be explicit about this of course Joe Biden. Having Been Barack Obama's vice president naturally associated with Obama's record Glenn he's wrapped himself in President Obama and everyone else has sort of seeded the lane which was kind of jaw dropping to be totally honest. There was also a difference last night on gun laws Beto total rourke Democrat of Texas noted early on that his city. I'll pass oh just suffered a mass shooting just weeks ago and he was pretty definite about assault style rifles hell yes. We're GONNA take your fifteen. Ak47 what does he want to do. And how does that. Compare to the other candidates on stage so he's proposing a mandatory gun buyback program Stephen you heard that line was so enthusiastically received in the debate hall all but that that just shows you. It's really popular maybe with the activist base of the Democratic Party. Most of the candidates do agree on some sort of version of voluntary gun buyback back program but our work is going further with this mandatory idea. I think what's really interesting. Is that when you look at the broader electorate mandatory Tori gun buybacks are really controversial recent. NPR PBS Newshour Mayor's poll found that forty six percent of Americans are against Congress passing such legislation Asian forty five percent are in favour and really the divide splits along partisan lines Dominica one of the question for you. We've talked about the five or six leading candidates. It's did anybody a little bit further down in the polls standout. All you know you look at over work. I mean he certainly was in full remote reboot mode of his candidacy and all these other candidates are starting to feel the heat and they were really trying some hail Marys yet Andrew Yang with this competition to give out a thousand dollars to to ten different people. Amy Klobuchar went for broke in the moderate Lane it who Leon Castro forcefully going after Joe Biden at several turns so you had a lot out of these candidates realizing that votes are going to be cast shortly and had to take some risks last night the Medico s Mahala. Thanks so much you're welcome. That's that's. NPR's here's dominicos Montinaro and NPR's Esfahan. The trump administration is changing what qualifies is as the waters of the United States the head of the Environmental Protection Agency signed off on the repeal of an Obama era era regulation for many years federal law has aimed to limit pollution in lakes and rivers the administration of President Obama extended that rule in ways that would regulate pollution on wetlands and smaller waterways they were to be regulated in part because they flow into the bigger waterways. EPA Administrator a straighter Andrew Wheeler argued that rolling back that rule would reassure farmers and home builders and landowners NPR's brought is covering this story for us and he's on the line naked morning hey steve what regulation exactly so what scrapping regulation that was finalized in the waning days of the Obama Administration called the waters of the the US rule or for short okay because you know as well as I do Steve Every federal policies only as strong as its acronym. That's not on August acronym. I got but anyway go basically with the waters United States did was tried to define which rivers streams wetlands and lakes should deserve protection under the Clean Water Act the clean water act itself largely limits pollution in big navigable waterways. That's the term in the actual statute but court decisions including a ruling from the Supreme Court left the door or open for protections to expand off of those bigger waterways so like you said not just the river but the stream that feeds into it or the wetland next to it and Obama wanted to basically officially officially extend federal water protections to that larger connected water system with this regulation. I guess we should just underline the basic problem. Here is gravity. You want to protect the rivers. The Big rivers offers you WANNA protect the big lakes but essentially all land I mean everything flows downhill into something and so how do you how far you extend that protection inland. Why did the trump trump administration consider Obama's approach to be a power grab? Well you know this change was not terribly popular with a number of groups farmers developers minors they saw all this is they did many Obama environmental regulations as a federal land grab in an overreach of what the Clean Water Act was actually intended to do and look the rules certainly expanded federal water protections to new waterways but was I think was as is the case with a lot of these policies one way or the other There's a lot of rhetoric where the on the ground impact is a a little harder to discern part of that be in this rule is because it was immediately challenged in court by some of the groups that we just mentioned and the trump administration was clear from let's start that this rule was one of its top environmental targets so in some ways it was kind of a dead rule walking. Oh so we never really found out how much landowners and other other people might have been affected had this rule been fully implemented. No it was only implemented in two thousand fifteen and and and was challenged by a number of states so do we have any sense now of how landowners and other people will be affected now that the rule is conclusively debt again say you know those groups are groups are thrilled ruled by this decision. EPA Chief Andrew Wheeler announced repeal to applause at the National Association of Manufacturers Headquarters yesterday but this rule like many many of the trump administration's regulatory rollbacks is going to be challenged in court so at the end of the day the impact is probably going to be discerned by court decision very very briefly as my drinking water is supposed to be affected by this again hard to say you know in the media the federal water protections are GonNa Revert back to where they were in nineteen
Defiant UK lawmakers move to bar 'no deal' Brexit
"With covering the fight in the house of Commons over no deal brexit dramatic events yesterday opposition MPs and twenty rebels from the governing Conservative Party uniting to defeat the prime minister Boris Johnson he says he's going to call an election that's what we've been talking about constitutional niceties parliament the shape of politics in Britain economics and elections as well here to round things out for us in the next few minutes at Stephen bush political editor for the New Statesman and Alice but one of those conservative rebels Alistair a just a just one Oski both where this leaves us in terms of how close we get to a no deal brexit that's what the prime minister wanted that's what he was promising now parliament is trying to stop it after all these events let's just go back to that fundamental things even a week closer or further from a no deal breaks it do you think at the moment further away for two reasons the the first is of course we all now moving to one will be from a just a little perspective further away because that will be a month long extension with further way too because one of the reasons why no deal looks so likely is this parliament can only say what he doesn't want they can say it doesn't stop brexit on one to have the with your agreement which eventually to the automatic correction of little leads to a no deal brexit I think we can see now upon off to only the a slightly different Commons which can resolve it one way or the other election foster actually your situation where the government looks at the prospects for election will break his own result and decides to swallow anything to get some form of brexit over the line I just about what you think is most likely a week closer or further away from an ideal bricks of my own. I come visual and I do know that what I would do this morning is in number ten I'd rip up the plan because

Progressive frontrunners face off at CNN debate which may also offer opening for centrists
"Democratic presidential primary voters face at least two big questions one is who they think can win in twenty twenty another is what each candidate would do if elected and tonight the country sees a range of possible choices here this debate like the last one features twenty candidates will be divided across two nights and by chance the first night in Detroit features all white candidates but there is some diversity of ideas two of the more progressive candidates arts center stage Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders toward the edges are more moderate figures like Colorado's John Hickenlooper NPR lead political editor to medical Montanaro will begin to try tonight to medical good morning good morning Steve how clear is it at this early stage what the party will stand for next fall well you know in this debate one I mean certainly you have when you look at that center stage which is organized by polling in the people who are on top in the polls you've got a socialist or democratic socialist and Bernie Sanders and someone who wants to make pretty radical economic reforms in Elizabeth Warren and the two of them have not shown that they really want to be going after each other very much and you know you noted the fact that this is going to be an all white stage and even though it's the most diverse in presidential history all the candidates of color are on night too and it's gonna be interesting to see how issues for example of race might come up yeah and we're certainly going to have an opportunity to find that out let me ask about those two central candidates they might be question from the edges you might hear a question from the likes of Tim Ryan John Hickenlooper who have a very different approach or say they have a very different approach to the economy and and other issues but what's the difference if any between those top two in tonight's group Sanders and more well in these are to progressive heroes and you've seen Elizabeth Warren gain on senator Sanders in the polls but when I talked to the Sanders campaign and and our reporters have done so as well in the center scams pretty clear that Sanders is not going to go after Warren he sees her as an ally in implementing progressive change but again they are competing for the same job in at some point they might have to draw distinctions if it comes down to the two of them Sanders points is friendship with her and working together there was a funny moment on CNN when Sanders was asked a week ago to say something nice about her and here was his response the son of the war and he is a friend of mine and I admire the fact that we have worked together over the years all on a number of issues anything specific well look we work together on a number of issues and she was a very good sort of okay keeping it vague but when you look at the things that they say that they would do if elected are there some differences there are I mean he's not someone who likes to concede any ground I would rather talk about big issues than about feelings but when you do dig inside some of the issues on them and just how far they would want to go in reshaping the country worn once big structural change but not socialism she calls herself a capitalist and on one area that hasn't been touched on much in this campaign foreign policy there are some big differences warn talks about how the defense industry for example should have a seat at the table but not on the table Sanders on the other hand has long time misgivings about American farm policy said that he would leverage aid for example recently against Israel calling it an extreme right wing government with many racist tendencies let me ask one other thing you mentioned race you mentioned the lack of diversity by chance in tonight's group but race is not just an issue for people of color it's an issue for white people and especially at this moment can you see ways that it would come up well it's certainly an opportunity for them to show unity against president trump because that has been something that has come up with this president and remember it be booted judges had to answer for his record in south bend as mayor in debate one it could be interesting to see if a question that comes back up tonight the medical thanks so much you're welcome that's an peers to medical Montanaro okay we're talking about this debate which could be a chance for Democrats to show unity against president trump but Democrats also face a related challenge how to reclaim the narrative from president trump he is dictated the headlines with racist tweets aimed for congressional Democrats followed by his criticism of the city of Baltimore let's talk strategy here with Matt Bennett he's executive vice president at the center left think tank third way he previously worked on former president bill Clinton's campaign among other campaigns and joins us now from Portland Maine good morning good morning so it is seems so far like many of these democratic candidates have have tried to put things towards issues like healthcare immigration the economy but then president trump provokes with racist tweets like we have seen that don't just demand some kind of response but they really monopolize the headlines so it in this climate what can democratic candidates do over the next two days yeah there's no question that Donald Trump is the greatest distractor in probably in human history and it is very difficult and we saw this in twenty sixteen when Hillary Clinton tried to break through with the economic plans another ideas it's just very difficult to get any oxygen when Donald Trump is using it all with his kind of distraction mechanisms of mostly on Twitter up but what Democrats have got to do is keep their head down and keep their eyes focused on the horizon they got a they got a just make sure that they are offering an articulating a narrative in a set of ideas to people that will resonate and will offer them hope in a moment when a lot of people are really struggle is that what voters want I mean to the polls tell you anything when you look at them to the primary voters or they craving substance or do they also want their candidates to take on the president and in moments like this well it's very interesting Democrats right now have both the game plan and a play book that was offered by bill twenty sixteen and twenty eighteen the game plan is you got a win in the upper Midwest Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania so it's voters in there the Democrats ought to be the most focused on the playbook was offered in twenty eighteen when we won the governor's races and all three of those states and we of course flip the house we want a net total of forty seats in lots of districts that look like places in those three states and the way we did that was offering people things that were concrete that answered the kind of kitchen table concerns about healthcare costs and about economic opportunity that is what we've got to do going forward I mean former Chicago mayor Democratic Party leader Rahm Emanuel wrote an open letter to the candidates saying they have to unite all primary voters at and that others in the past like Barack Obama like Bill Clinton were able to do that but but is that really the goal of all the candidates here I mean what how do you advise a candidate who you know wants to both unite but also has to set him or herself a part in a really crowded field that's a really hard job with twenty four candidates it's hard with two candidates we saw this in two thousand eight when really it was Obama versus Clinton and the differences between them were were very narrow sit offering distinctions between you and and the other person is real tough and that is one of the things that these candidates are gonna struggle with they'll do it and some with policy and then a lot with personality we saw after the first round of debates that some of the lesser known candidates got a lot of attention because of moments that they had in come challenging one another on stage will probably see some of that tonight tomorrow but the I think for people like me who are not picking a horse but are keeping our eye on whoever the nominee is being able to be trucked imperative for all of them is to focus on persuading people that may have voted for trump last time to switch up there's been some data that shows that eighty nine percent of the vote margin in the twenty eighteen races I talked about earlier came from people who switch from voting for trump devoted to the Democrat we have got to really focus on those people what is one specific piece of advice if you give to a candidate who is coming into this thinking to themselves I've got a hang on here I've got to be different I've got to distinguish myself I'm only gonna have maybe one or two chances with the camera you know focused on me but I also have to unite the entire party have you do all that with with like very limited time that's a pretty tall order but I think the the number one thing that people are wondering from come policy perspective is about health care cost ninety percent of Americans now of healthcare coverage and we certainly need to cover the other ten percent but it voters already know that's kind of priced in the Democrats want to get to universal coverage what they don't know is what do we think about how difficult it is to pay the bills the deductibles in the premiums in the copays in this price build focusing on health care costs will signal to voters that we or that candidate understands their life in a kind of fundamental way and it

"political editor" Discussed on KQED Radio
"To the parliament, take place every five years, and voter turnout has been steadily declining in two thousand fourteen it was the lowest ever just forty two point five percent. You're listening to a European parliament elections special on inside Europe. So why is voter turnout so low? That's ask Ryan Haith, who is political editor as politico Europe and he's on the line from Brussels. Hello, ryan. Hello. Why is voter turnout solo? Well, that European institutions are so far removed from people's everyday lives. A lot of people don't really understand who the member of the European parliament is, and the election that they care about lease. So to drive up turn out, you really have to combine elections. And if you have more than one or two elections at the same time, then people tend to skip this one. There are few party groupings of four election, which of the main party groupings are expected to do, well, actually nobody this time round. So the two biggest groups, the European People's Party, the Christian, Democrats the center right and the socialists and Democrats into left. They're really getting down to sort of twenty two twenty three percent levels. Of support. So it's starting to look a lot more like some national politics, the Netherlands, which is very fragmented. The grains are doing very well in some countries, but they basically don't exist in central and eastern Europe. And then you've got all of the eurosceptic parties, a split. They can't really form one single United grouping. So you're looking at a very divided. Parliament basically run-up to these elections in Italy is deputy premier Mateo Salvini. Here's he's been spearheading campaign to bring Europe's far right parties together, how is up in impacting the election campaign? It's definitely being driving a lot of the discussions. And I think a lot of people in Brussels, our afraid that the eurosceptics will be much bigger this time round, and they're not wrong to Warri it looks like skeptics will make up about one third of the parliament about two hundred fifty individual members. But matatus any has not succeeded in getting more than about seventy five of those likely as to come together and his grouping. So he'll be the biggest euroskeptic leader and his party will have. The most impact, but they still going to be divided over issues like Russia, and how do you deal with flood Mia Putin, and it means that they weren't really have the big impact that, they'd like to have on the one of the first tasks of the new parliament will be to elect the next president of the European Commission who's your prediction for the top job? It might even be one of the candidates who hasn't been appearing on the debate stages, and on television in recent weeks. It could be someone like Michelle bountygate chief Brexit negotiate for the EU and the reason for that is none of the parties doing so. Well, so it looks like they'll have to have a very complicated deal for a lot of different positions because there's going to be a clear winner on the night of the election. If there is going to be someone from that debate stage it's likely to be Manford Vega. He's the center, right candidate from Bavaria. Okay.
