A Weekend Of Chaos In Britain

"Been a weekend of chaos. in britain. the prime minister. Boris johnson gave a press conference on saturday which kick started a chain of events that is now being felt worldwide launch price former communications director at number ten downing street joins me now and monaco own editorial director tyler overlay is on the line from our studio launch. If we could begin with you can you talk us through. What's happened since saturday afternoon. Well basically christmas in britain has not quite been canceled. But it's come pretty close to it and it's enfold a pretty massive change of direction if not u-turn by the british government only on wednesday of last week. The prime minister was saying it would be inhuman draws people to cancel that christmas plans And then on saturday. He was forced to do a news conference in which he said that that is exactly what he was asking them to do. So that now people in in this country because of this new variant of covid nineteen essentially will be asked to just see a small number of people depending on where they live in the country on one day only on christmas day and then of course. We learned yesterday overnight. that's because of this New variant which is understandable because in great concern around the world. People struggled to see whether or not they have already with a. If they haven't they can they can contain the to prevent it coming. In from the united kingdom of borders closed all over the place huge queues to lorries trying to get to the at channel pulse dover in in particular where the crossing is to france and The french assigned that they won't take any huge queues at the an railway stations that get out of london and also chaos at the airports with likes being canceled to just about every destination you can of and it's hard to keep track of all the buddhas being closed at the moment. Tyler could bring you in here. What is the european view. We'll good afternoon georgia. European is one of not just canceling flights and cancelling connections. But also what we're seeing now. are now new quarantines going up so you know brits and also we also focused on maybe on a territory close to your heart or close to your heart also south africa as well because south africa is very much in the news as well it it. It is really in line with the uk as another country. is seeing outright bans on all travelers arriving whether the company from cape town or Or johannesburg into germany into switzerland and elsewhere as well so you have mean proper borders closes. It looked to for that moment. Yesterday we saw the dutch saying that. Okay airlinks We're going to be suspended but now we're looking at you. No one is allowed to arrive. in many countries the uk. And as you said almost minute by minute there are new measures going by countries across the continent here I mean lance one of your former colleagues listed campbell says it looks like the whole country is being put in brexit four by the rest of the world when incompetence meets venality and covert and brexit combined to expose the worst possible government at the worst possible. Time which you agree has this been woefully mishandled. Mile does have a way with words doesn't he. And he's absolutely right to in pretty much. Everything within the he says. Of course you have to separate this from from brexit brexit the final brexit deadline. Which is the thirty first of january. Hasn't yet hit us but as honestly suggests it's a taste of what we thought who's going to come anyway and he's also right to say that it raises a big question over the competence of the government other new variant of covid. Nineteen isn't boris johnson. Falls it's not anybody's walton in the in the british government but their reluctance to recognize. What so many other people around the world were recognizing and what their own scientific medical devices with telling them. Which was that the original plan for a five day. Christmas virtual virtually a free for all in the uk was just madness to only for that only to dawn on them on saturday. In the light of the new virus i think does call call call into question their their competence the end of the year when actually frankly dot competence has been called into question many times. I mean you think that johnson used the fact of the new variant to excuse his u-turn and was that then the perfect excuse for european borders to to fall like dominoes and shut us off physically from the block. Is there a little bit of perhaps schadenfreude going on here. We'll do spend a lot of speculation today georgina. You look at a number of different european news. Outlets are we also heading for some type of emergency extension Which could potentially happen. Which would again this would be of. Course be you know the perfect measure You have this new strain. You have borders. Of course being closed eros suspended cetera There there's no better excuse to if they wanted to kick this into the grass. I mean no one wants this But certainly you have to think here we have incredibly busy government Who have to deal with logistics issues. they have to deal with A media and public storm around this. I think we could be could be heading for certainly if you're listening to a lot of the correspondence at have brussels today. Maybe an extension talking about those logistical issues. Lonzo i mean. There are serious concerns about supply chains. How will the border closures affect availability of because then indeed traffic. Kent is already gridlocked in terms of traffic coming into the uk. Of course the roots are still open. If people wish to use those rates as a question ma about whether eu holiest would want to send their vehicles into the uk If they didn't get out again especially in the run-up to christmas and the other thing to remember is that a quite a lot quite a high percentage of trade across the english channel is unaccompanied freight. So it goes in containers dr flirt. It's picked up on the other side so there's no physical as a human being crossing with it and that can continue so the supermarkets and the many people in industry. I'll say don't panic yet. But we may be days away from them saying actually. Now's the time to panic I mean tyler is britain and by extension boris johnson. The sick man of europe. Is this an unprecedented crisis. Could we compare it to. I don't know one thousand nine hundred nine well if you look at some of the headlines in the papers certainly in the german press. We've been seeing the word pariah state being used at. This is not something that you throw around lightly georgina and of course. Adrian has lancer as well. You're there've been so many missteps on the part of this government of boris johnson's government over the last year You know just you fits and starts Throats and certainly near the stop start notion of of how to deal with this and then there's just the pure calms issue that you had the health secretary matt hancock. You're really using the words out of control. No one wants to be quoted and heard to be using the world words out of control. But that's of course what is what is popping up in the media all over the place so this is very much a situation Which is a on number ten. Watch and i really. I mean unfortunate viewing You know when we have just a little over week to run to the end of the year absolutely. I mean the whole thing about boris. Johnson is his popularity. He's been trying to do everything. Save christmas to just remain popular. He's he's a brinkman he makes. He puts off decisions until the last possible moment. He's had to do this thing he didn't want to do. What does this mean for his future. Well it certainly calls into question. I think quite a lot of wiser heads in the conservative party. A wondering about the man that elected as their leader elected him as the leader essentially because he was offering a clean break with the party's and and with the country's past as a member of the european union but there were a lot of alarm bells were ringing even before he was elected leader of the conservative party so prime minister about whether he had the kind of character to do the job. Not as those questions are even more relevant today but one aspect of his character is an shown this time and time and time again is that he thinks he can get away with almost anything so things he said in the past that might have ruined other people's political raise. He shrugged them off with a joke or or a struggle. Whatever it whatever it may be decision sees a potential scandals in his private and professional life. He thinks he can trump the more often. Just get on with it. And i think that Which is a kind of you know. Fly by the seat of your pants. Premiership simply isn't up to the task that now faces and and we're we're finding that out and a lot of people paying the price for it absolutely tolerate wonder. If i could just end with you. I don't know how much of an astronomer who are but saturn jupiter comes closest. They've been in almost four hundred years today. The the two giants of the solar system will be just not point one degrees part in the night sky that makes them appear to be one bright star just about the moon the great conjunction as it's being called also coincides with the winter solstice. Now we all know what happened. Two thousand and twenty years ago when there was a bright star. Do you think this is a potent from the heavens. Are we to expect the second coming or the end of days. I think we were corresponding last night. Georgina did use the word biblical then. So i didn't know if that's sort of foxfire. D'you into into that orbit certainly feels like that with this. It is really a convergence on on so so so many levels. I mean if you if you break this down thinking about the the the the ongoing political story that we've had around brexit Really pretty much a year that we've now been dealing with at least global level with this pandemic And then all of these other we call them niggly. Bits that are also I think surrounding the uk at the moment As well so this will be on. This will be revisiting. The story of sure later today and we'll be talking about it across the week for sure. Absolutely and i think just to tear each other up if we could schedule a zoom call later where we both sing. Tutsi-run emma sheet. Is christmas eve That would go some way to alleviating the absolutely. I think that's going to have to be heavily on the playlist this afternoon. We'll look forward to chatting later. Thank you very much to tyler and to launch price

"premiership" Discussed on Coffee House Shots

"Within number ten link i f we conservative backbenchers. This weekend of pretty happy. There is a chance letting us among many in the cabinet. That is a good thing that the vote leave contingent on the way i enter forces weakened and i think you can underestimate. I i think the one nation focus group particularly as 'cock-a-hoop as one. Mp in that group Put it to me but in terms of what comes next as she say there is still like a concern you if people about the fact that we have a situation where dominic cummings in the nikkei and have left of media fact gardening leave lacking roommate. Need however you wanna put it clearly not integral parts of the operation but yet we still don't have a chief staff. Your listeners interim chief of stuff. But i think if eddie list of is really seen as someone who had such tight control of dining straight we wouldn't be in situation we all know so so there is a concern that this leaves a vacuum in terms of the power players. If we can report carry some instances one allegra stratton is clearly going to be a key part of this james slack director communications who is a civil servant rope. Someone who's very trusted. So i think that means that even they've fixed departed. You have a fairly stable machine just comes to if is correct. The portions very much struggles to make a decision. She was in that building to help make that decision. I think we're gonna see in terms of what they want to replace. I think that ever has very different views on this while we have a probably quite a universal celebration speech we've feature directions government and they will come up different things and struck by one tory. Mp has a seat. I've probably glued commute about seat. So i do think that the red wool leave message ever particularly benefit them but they were saying know if they boris johnson. That'd be a little bit concerned that figures such as simon whole jewish shrimp by one nation tories and see the traditional shaya tories a really celebrating and install something new and i think we see in the announcement overnight from the government about how bush is going to reaffirm his devotion to the red wolves that there is a concern after recent briefings..

"premiership" Discussed on Coffee House Shots

"How shots the spectators. Daily politics focused on guscott. And i'm joined by fraser nelson and katie balls now after a torrid week of backstabbing and retribution. in downing street today was meant to be a reset. This week was meant to be. When boris johnson would redefine his premiership with the vote. Leave band of brothers. Leaving number ten katie. A spanish been thrown in the. Can you tell us a little bit about that. Yes so much. Were reset this debate. As to how deep this reset goes but we denote. Boris yeltsin wants to see a series of nine some related to climate change and the environment of is related to reiterating the fact that he's still very much casbah. Read will vote is but all of these things are going to have to be done remotely. This is because boris johnson has been told to isolate he got the test and trace at ping as he put it to. In a subgroup tori. Mp's and saying being in contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus that passed as a tory m p anderson. He's empty for ashfield. And as a result he has to self isolate up to two weeks. Now there's some debate because dining street saying two weeks. But i think technically it's two weeks from when the person tested positive. He could be slightly under. But this means obviously everything is going to have to be done made. Now the has been who recently about the fact that those mp's hugh clinically vulnerable and unable to parliament cannot enter into debates on legislation with the current rules and therefore it seemed as birsh. It's not be able to take part in parliament either. However a rule changes coming those in the government side insistence was in the works she before. Boris johnson diagnosis. What it means ensure is probably going to see a wider rule. Change means those unable to come to the house has comments will be able to contribute your day. And boris johnson may well d- prime minister's questions via zoom. Which would be an inch interesting to see about. I think generally speaking this isn't a big deal is clearly an undesirable additional huddle to what's going to be difficult. Boris johnson. The sunday papers were a bit of a horror shave for the government. No matter which side you're on it was just. I don't think anyone came up. Particularly well is bit like a soap drama. I saw him on channel full. You know they tied to west. End is them. Hasn't music up. And i think what bush wants needs to do is trying set suggestion. Oh no amy's it business as usual. I've got the sense of purpose. You know. I don't rely on my aids as much as she told i can do. This and he may still be able to do it but i do. Think it is a drag for him that he's going to have to do it via the computer from downing street which we know is pretty ripi connection. Hopefully you of course reflection. What's an absurd system. This is where he for. We all know that he's had a virus. We also knew that in the world of something like eight hundred.

When the Arab spring protests swept through the Middle East. Demonstrators in Bahrain protested over the chronic corruption allegations surrounding Prince Khalifa, among other things.

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

Shinzo Abe Becomes Japan’s Longest-Serving Prime Minister

"Shinzo our prime. My Minister of Japan will today be celebrating. What would have seemed a decade or so back an unlikely milestone? He is now the longest serving prime minister. In Japan's history is brief stint from two thousand six to two thousand seven added to the longest stretch has enjoyed since two thousand twelve has overhauled the benchmark set by. Juke Cuts Toro three times. Prime Minister of a very different Japan in the early years of the twentieth century. Nobody serves as long as a house without tapping into something in their electorate. So in our base case Wat- one joined with more on this Spicer David Warren Former UK ambassador to Japan now Associate Fellow with the Asia Pacific Program At Chatham House David thank you for joining us rb. Does he have a particular singular secret. Is there one thing about him which is got into where he's got to and kept him there i. It's hard to say that he does although he's clearly a competent politician in Japanese terms. And he's come to the premiership of Japan of course after a period of intense political volatility extending over decades in Japanese politics. Prime Minister for the most part have come and gone and there's genuine public Cynicism and discontent with the fragile nature of Jap the Japanese politics so in a sense he benefited from having come after a period of great great Great Tab instability and he benefited also from having a very weak opposition during this period because the opposition party which was in government government three years between two thousand nine and two thousand twelve when it was cold. Democratic Party of Japan has been itself Rhythm With factions and essentially all over the place in terms of being able to land any punches on the Liberal Democratic Party government. So you haven't any competition in the end. He hasn't much competition from outside the party. And he's given the Japanese people a sense of stability which I think they have respected. So you wouldn't say there's an RB ISM as such. There is not a philosophical cornerstone to him philosophical cornerstone to him. But I'm not certain. It's one shared by the Jersey of Japanese people originally from the nationalist wing of the Liberal Democratic Party Much of his Political philosophy is good on. We habilitation his grandfather who was prime minister of Japan in the nineteen fifties and had a very problematical record in the nineteen thirties and forties during Japan's occupation career and four in China. And he has a nationalist. I think wants to both rehabilitate Prime Minister Kitchen. Gran- grandfather's father's mutation and also to turn the page so to speak on Japan's problematic history in ways. which do not necessitate? The next generation of Japanese need having to grapple as much with the the difficult politics of apology that other innovations have had to do But that nationalism is ten uh-huh by a political pragmatism of the recognition that He needs to fix the Japanese economy. Most Japanese voices are more worried about economic issues the constitutional nationally issues and that. Whatever obeys nationalist impulse maybe he needs to ventilate them in ways which staint disturb Japan's regional neighbours particularly China and Korea He had a very different sense of twentieth century. History in in that regard with China. He's got the relationship back onto something more of an even Keel career. It's much more difficult than well. How successful do you think he has been the not very by the sound of it? IN-IN addressing those difficult relationships with its neighbors in the region often overhung as they are by a history of world war. Two Cudi of done more. Well he's been successful with China. I think it's fair to say you inherited a difficult situation with China in in two thousand twelve when he became prime minister. The previous government nationalized the disputed islands in the East China Sea. which had alienated the Chinese Government and lead to a serious deterioration in the relationship nationalism. In the sense to prevent extreme nationalist getting the hands on them relations the China very very difficult and after initial period of tension. In which are they Like some of his predecessors as prime minister visited controversial Ashley yesterday shrine intake I they has invested considerable effort in establishing more of a relationship with Xi Jinping and getting the relationship back onto who Something more bridging equilibrium. Now there is talk. All Xi Jinping making a state visit to Japan in the spring of Twenty Twenty strong stronger relationships at every level of the Japanese and Chinese governments and there is a serious dialogue not least east because both countries face unpredictable. US Administration This time so the record with China is best and Eve. When I was prime minister in the decade he bested lots of time in improving relations with China to the situation with career is much harder because There is both Business over disputed history particularly on the Korean side and the sense on the Japanese side. The taught to know how to deal with careers concerns the Japanese. This was all settled. Many years ago with extensive reparations agreement that the issue was closed is they are resentful of the Koreans now reopening these historical issues so while I think there is some legitimate criticism of days. Playing the the nationalist card in in in this area there is also the sense Career is is is stay with him to negotiate during your time says Ambassador to Japan. What sense were you able to get all obeys personal style? What what what is he like to deal with as an individual when I wasn't I'm bachelor at the time. When I was in power? He was in power for a year in the mid noughties when he succeeded Prime Minister Junichiro. Well he's only and that was a very unsuccessful time any wasn't well and there were scandals which produced the effectiveness of these government and the U. banned last year? He became prime minister. Game Justin I left Japan at the end of my ambassadorship in twenty twelve. So what do I met him Briefly socially really and observed him as one of a number of leaders of the opposition during that very very febrile terriers. I didn't his His style-obsessed hand but he is certainly Powerful politician he's centralizing politician. He's established strong central control throw of the mechanisms of government of the appointment of key personnel. he is a strong leader in those terms Some in Japan would argue that he is too strong a leader that he centralize too much that he creates a political. Is it gonNA spread by. People are reluctant to step out of line into sagres with what comes out of the center out of the Prime Minister's office that can lead to strong and stable government not one respect it can also lead to Mistakes accounting if they have in certain areas of policy where civil servants have told politicians what they want to hear other than in the objective and and practical advice.

to be a major shift up there and always also stealing between going and spending time into taking up contracts in Japan it was one thing that we didn't go ahead and do and and Dino Radja wrong but I'm happy being I'm a father a husband and Jockeying Victoria and there's plenty of opportunities here Viktoria but opportunities for you as a young Fella didn't come easy in particular touchdown you were born in Britain arising gang file ellen trying to ulcers your mother as a daughter of an ant standing champion China intake harrison so you grew up around it and now you very welding crab boy has jurisdiction might but things were not easy in terms of guiding Lawson says an apprentice jockey can the in-law this little net giancarlos had two brothers dining jason and five for them train horses and I always wanted sabet my father I always wanted to be a jockey and are at school writing stories that would be at that time it was called is it's called houses and pray stable jockey and then we'd win Cox plight smell when cops call them slips and at the same time we went to school we've never light I harrison who's my cousin and he brought the similar so he was he was worried if the coming so it was great whoo did hating certain races and and we write stories that will have families all children ride horses and ponies and and we used to fuck up they the bathrooms that it'll mirrors and think one and I didn't realize then we thought it was finding eight until we become jockeys and realize someone is fun and Games it's a hell of chocolates having having look whites and we've found it wasn't much fun neighbor did start out and I was quite heavy I was fifty kilos went on winning to the initial trial period can get to get a three months period and was fifteen I think I lost fifty fifty days of age What's the president to on as an apprentice to buy knock you back to Mike my father had a very good case and put forward to to the panel stewards who who's done and it was that the OCE Bay headquarters in South Melbourne and John repack end and he just say well if it's three months period he's still going through much trial period he still going to start school so if he doesn't make it to be what he dreams he's hopes and dreams of going to be shattered but if he doesn't maybe we can taping industry maybe he can be Ferriera Conroy track work something he doesn't have to necessarily have to be Asaki if he's white doesn't come down so you only trial period let's say let's monitoring whiten please give him a go down the drain that are going to be shouted if it doesn't if it doesn't turn it right to him and he put through good case and the rest is history but I'm very fortunate that I listened and most importantly beware in if I didn't have the support my parents and my brothers like amazing upbringing advising loft because I've had what support structure the whole time so of course in life you have good and bad times and you have to have a network around you and I was lucky I was born to that network so you leave school when you fifty you're selling them as an apprentice for three month test saving and bring Your White Dan work in the environment of the stable and the need to to reach of your father did you lose that why did you had a guy for that the three months was quite tough where you're on Dodd's yes so my father he was previously jockey and he said I want my son doing what I had to do in back then comparing it to what we know now they didn't we didn't have the education at disposal and and we're lucky because PAT highland son Tom Samdhong and we're all doing apprenticeships together and it was actually Marine Pat Highland that put my my mother and father onto eighty at one of the hospitals that does nutrition so then we went and saw this this lady and we I was in learning nutrition pretty condoling sorry I don't think I've really had I'm not sure but but they put me on to things that I had assault wasn't that strict so I was actually perfect for me being a young person and at that age you get told by speaks volume by a lot of things so it was great that we so had options to work around it wasn't that you had to do this and that the only thing was I was going doing a growing phases while we're both my brothers went through as well so I would say I had muscles that was that wobbly muscle cold fat anyway I was Pretty Pretty Pudgy so I I did have to lose and and then I had to drive because I wanted to do it on a lot my cousin I want to be my father and and that really drives me then we sought out a nutritionist? They don't want to partition and then true that we went onto a sportsman allegation who ended up being tyranny who is now head of the Victorian Institute of Sport so my parents put me onto the papal from eight to learn about what we needed to be obligated do and and then luckily body allowed me to to stay light and and now he won the top jockeys destroy that can ride lot it's a fascinating combination of managing growing as a young person young men working seven days a week every second Sunday off as an apprentice becker we're in the nineties and to be losing white but tells the bet natural ability where you're a natural as a kid was quite tough for you to guide opportunity to rotting rices and winners now wasn't I wasn't a natural a lot a lot hoses fast and but the natural and no mine never was but I always had to work hard and anyway that's probably what's being more strongly drink is just working hard and I love strategizing always loved the planning and the tactics and and but most importantly doubt the support I had the best thing I had even as a master my father he's turned out to be one of the lady mosses of apprentices as well look grain -taining in Sydney my follows the signing Victoria with everyone that went under and he's guidance fulltime it turned out to be the champion Raja's group one winning Rod he's very proud of that he does remind me that often but always very lucky osborne as every time I rode a race we were analyzing everything that we were doing and and still had that

What Are the Ramifications of Theresa May's Exit from Brexit?

"So Theresa May has not Ted part date. She's leaving the office of prime minister after around free years in the job. What will be James trees may has joined a long list. Really now of conservative prime ministers have been brought down by the issue of Europe. Will she be remembered as a prime minister Hugh failed to deliver Brexit? Yes, in principle entry in the history. Books will be four. I've been there is another interesting question about, may that which is, it's easy to forget today with reason, having departed, the stage, two stage, said that when she will depart the sage accurately when she was riding high in the polls in those early moments of our premiership Harim was not justed liver Brexit. Aim was the change the entire nature of a conservative party and therefore, British politics. She and chief star Timothy wanted to turn the Tories into much more of a Christian Democrat style Ponti, and they have been, and it was a Wayne attempts gonna go back to almost gonna prefabs right, Tori party, but different in a way that it was going to be a Tory party. It was a more kind of working class voters than the toys have been previously and the Fady about twenty seventeen campaign, nor the only did it cut her off the Neal Brexit, because the loss of a majority meant that the. She was negotiating in Europe knew that she couldn't really walk away from the table because Paulin would NASA, uneven even if she did this wasn't going to prison wasn't going to respond to Moltke from table by can radically becoming Singapore overnight, because the parliamentary numbers simply were now but it also stymied her domestic plans, those people in the cabinet who had never been found slim, think of chancellor, Philip Hammond, Saturday, Javid, Vail, felt empowered to essentially stand up all of these ideas with more determination. That's why I think when she was talking about her domestic, like yesterday in her resignation statement was. I'm not saying stuff wasn't important on issues like mental health and domestic abuse, and the racist Bartle it. But these are not normally what promises would site as I have that principal legacies. Yes fraser. Let me look Theresa May's premiership. There was a point the full that snap election where lots of pundits house people in this room were predicting a long reign factories may. She looked on course for a very large majority landslide majorities some points. And there was a concern that she if anything she would have too much power over her party. Being in a pub with the one of her cabinet members two weeks before the election. He was literally planning, what they would towards do in their twenty twenty three budget because so long the rain front of them seem the expectation was that 'em. Choose about to put labor to the sword. And sure by doing lots of left wing stuff, which which my drinking partner disagreed. But he was saying, this is the price of ten years of power, I'm willing to pay it now as it turned out, this was a massive miscalculation. And sure people can blame her for this, nap election quite right to that's hardly, anybody said, actually, you lose your majority that was a show to every pundit every pollster, so everybody was taking a bag by just how much first of all her campaign fell apart. And Secondly, by the way, that Jeremy Corbyn made more progress than any leader of any post reporting twenty seventeen election and also there was no, I was actually I'm still I'm very happy of the result of election. Because I think Theresa May was on course to be a monster. She was behaving a boom nably to her cabinet. She was ruling by dick tat with Nick Timothy and funeral hill to her advisers. They were speaking, very harshly to elect politicians as if they were servants expressing the will of the master and reason me force that twenty seventeen legs and not as a conservative, she would have these party broadcast. We'd hardly hear the word conservative. This was about to resume and Theresa May's party, she sought a personal mandate, which intended to use to run a personal government. I think that would be a calamity, and even though the losing of that majority has led to lots of problems for the conservatives normally support. I'm still pleased that happened. I mean, Theresa May's women have incredible honor of public duty of stamina of lots of personal qualities, and I've been so many times, just awed the way that she's been able to walk through fire. And still come out the other side barely an expression changed on her face. And as journalists we always criticize people for people who are doing things that we knew we could never self as new way out of survivor two weeks injuries amaze job. So I'm not going to make out Viking disparage her bitter problem was to govern, you need to bring people with you, you need to be people person, you need to put together a whole bunch of talented people in the cabinet and share their ideas. David Cameron was able to do that to resume was not. And that ultimately is why she failed nab before we go into detail on the things that trees, the made did wrong. I think that this, plenty to go over James was appoint as we touch by she's doing very well in the polls, but she gave that burning injustices speech, which seemed to really reach to a new audience the conservative party as prime minister. What did she do? Right. One of the things he did. Right. As prime minister, the beginning was to appear different to pre-disaster I think too. Public that were slightly out with slipping then she seemed to be different kind of politician. People look to her slightly older less flashy, and they fought a sore someone. He was just going to interested in getting on the jolt approval ratings at one stage. We're not just high with the highest ever recorded for a party leaders, easy to forget that now just how popular wildly popular she was. And this is why coordinator election was such mistake, because she had repeatedly looked for country in the eye and said, I'm not going to call a general election. It's not right for the country to have a general election. I don't play. Let's go games. I'm not going to do that. And then suddenly, she goes walking wells and she finds it she go to twenty four point police, and that proves to tempting even for this bickers daughter. And I think that was the beginning of things on winding because the public will, like hang on a second, my what you were different and now you're having this election, and then obviously that was the manifesto that, that went so wrong. And I think that was the problem that resume which was she tried to act almost as an empty politics here. I only remember that famous speech at the beginning, they drink in the balls, they gossip in the tea room. I just get the job. And I think people saw who election and they were like, well, how does that compute? It just didn't quite work. The problem was. But in the election, they tried to push a Ford in into Theresa May's conservatives, they tried to push for almost going call to personality, and she's not comfortable in that role. And I think there is. I fought today pops fishing thing about the end of her premiership was the cabinet rule told that trees may was going to give a statement at ten o'clock in the morning, but they weren't told what she was going to say. And I think one of the things that I say strained relations, is that, that she's never really bought a cabinet entire discussions. The famous story about people on the on the minibus on the way to the Tory manifesto, lose telling shovel what's in it because the cabinet hun hundred proper reading it for the first time and even this week, the proximate cause of going was that she had a cabinet meeting about what she's going to say your new draw Bill, and she didn't tell them that was going to be a second referendum proposal in there. So she springs on them and you, you simply can't do that and lead. That is not how one leads politically, I mean she was fundamentally suited to different form of government where she was at Mathov and everybody else to orders. She might have been a good ruler of perhaps a slightly different country as democratic as ours. But this is not how you run a cabinet government in Britain. And even Gordon Brown wasn't as sort of dismissive of the rest of his cabinet's opinions. She ended up being, I think he's well, she never picked all you never prepared people. What it was. So in the run up to the famous checkers meeting off to export Johnson. David Davis resigned. Suddenly twenty four hours beforehand ministers, sent in the papers on their shocked, because they sent a big shift in the strategy now in room, number ten executed that shift several months ago, but they never told the Brexit secretary and they never told the foreign secretaries straight up, but this was the move, but they made and I think this was point of the problem, I think this is going to be one of the big challenges for her successor is probably Ponti is, is, as you pointed out on the twenty brings promises down over Europe Bisley divide on the subject. But you have to find some way to bring your cabinet with you to make them feel. Part of it's gushing think one of trees failures. She never did that. And then I think everyone off to twenty seventeen electrical room but you'll remembered how they have been treated by Theresa May's joint chiefs of staff is going to be humiliations. They had injured and you can say politicians Bill to rise bubbas in the national interest. But I think ever since then has been a desire to settle scores from some of capital. It's really we're seeing a bit about why she was like that. And I don't think it's because she was Ouragan or because there's a little dictator inside differ. I just think she founded difficult to talk to people difficult to have difficult conversations when m cabinet members were up to resume and they come back saying she barely moves. She barely acknowledged. I was speaking, she just found it incredibly difficult to communicate on a personal basis. And also with the country more broadly, and I think that's why she behaved. And she behaved is not that she wanted to be a little Decatur is just she just found increase. Ably on a personal level hearts, navigate this conversations that will lead to open discussion, and a compromise and always baffled me, why if you don't like Munich ation, if you don't like talking to people, by the way, people don't why you would choose politics as a career. Now trees made Clayton took into too many people in her party as you say, James, she prided has one point. I'm not going to the parliament buzz, but she did always have it in a circle and over the past couple of years has got slightly smaller, in part with loss of, of her key advisers, Nick, Timothy and Fiona hill after the snap election. Now they were credited as opposed discredited for helping her heavily when she made decisions. But they both resigned in the wake of this nap election. Result phrase, a t- think that she suffered from not having those close advisors after the election. It was said that the only of a person she really felt comfortable talking to us been for that may. Yes. Of course, she massively. Suffered from it because they were the only two people with whom she really had as of trusting relationship. Again, that's difficult if you're politically because people will come and go, you need to be able to form working relationships with people, who you hate, but you need to be together for strategic reasons. So unkind souls with save at the may boats had lost his programmer after those two left, and they were, and it was just wondering around coming up with whatever statements the last person to ride speech would say, and I think that she does have instincts instincts, that were very, very well, translated by Nick, Timothy hill, they'd worked with them. I mean, I knew anybody who works closely when people can know there are people you trust us judgment. You trust who are able to take the best of what you're trying to say and make it sound good. And similarly, people who vice you'll take. No. If you lose these people than is very difficult to carry on. And she was such a creature of these two. There was just triumvirate. And she was never able to reassemble that triumph for it. So you've got Roby Gaber chief communications officer go Gavin bar. Well, her chief of staff venue, only Robbins Briggs negotiator. She does of a habit being very reliant on the advice of three people, but they weren't ones with which he worked as well. I mean, take the burning injustices agenda. I've got suspicion that she was wasn't opposed to it, but that was only Timothy's and when he left so did that gender. So that was a major flaw, and Katy period era. Former communications officer used to have that burning injustices speech, literally posted on the door of her office because this inspired her. What she thought the me premiership ought to have been about Reza me has one of these or whatever quite itchy. Be leaves us, by the way with quite a few soundbites, one of them, of course, is the sins of the world systems of nowhere. That will be happy to be the. Famous and notorious one another one will be Briggs. It means brings it. So I think there was actually more wisdom in that than people said at the time the one that sticks mind right now is this, if you don't believe in Briggs, it, you won't be able to deliver Brexit. I think it was fundamentally her problem. But I would add to it saying, if you don't really believe in the burning injustices agenda, you're never really going to be able to now when it comes to trees maze, belief in Brexit. She did struggle, then probably one of her more difficult entities when she has us has she been vote, if there was an e referendum tomorrow, and here is her aunt, sir. If there was a Brexit vote now, would you vote Brexit, because you voted remain in the referendum? Have you changed her mind? Well, I, I don't answer pathetically questions. But what I well, I voted remain. I voted remained for good reasons, the at the time, but circumstances move on. I think the important thing now is that? I think we should all be focused onto littering Brexit, delivering the best to you what you want us to say, how would I vote in a vote now against a different background national background different economic? Now, James says she refused to really say, do you think that was approved him there in the sense that she could never be work at what the answer was a question like that. She just didn't really believe that she would change vote want resilience problems. Is she? How old for someone who was prime minister an old lack of intellectual self confidence. She was uncomfortable. Responding spontaneously to a question now, I personally not into a failure of staff work because in Delhi being very excitable. Jeremy hunt told

UK polls open, starting 4 days of European elections

"To the UK now where pressure is mounting fast for Prime Minister Theresa may to resign this evening. A cabinet member in charge of the government's parliamentary business quit saying maze approach cannot deliver Brexit yesterday. Theresa May did try again to resuscitate her plan to take Britain out of the European Union. This latest attempt was roundly panned. Meanwhile, tomorrow voters in the UK are expected to deliver May's conservative party, a humiliating defeat in European parliamentary elections. Let's bring NPR's Frank Langfitt who's tracking all this from London. Hey, frank. Hey, Mary Louise start with his cabinet resignation today. How significant is it, it's, it's quite significant inevitable. But it's embarrassing alienating looking back. Maybe two weeks from now, if this is the fatal blow that, that ends the premiership of Theresa May Andrea leads him in charge as you were saying, managing the government's business in the house of calm. Which she said in a letter tonight is she's loss. Face faith in May's ability to deliver on the two thousand sixteen Brexit. Referendum decision leads also, it's worth noting is among many members of the parliament, who are expected to run to replace may in the campaign, and that campaign is already frankly started. There is a sense here that the politics of the country is already moving on even though prime minister may still in number ten Downing Street, but she is still a number ten Downing Street. Choose still minister, and she's been in political trouble for months, does this really feel different? I think it does. I think yesterday what you saw people responding to affect a political hail, Mary it failed. It was discarded pretty much, not just by the conservative party, but also labor, and what she was doing was offering basically a possibility for parliament to vote on putting Brexit referendum back to the people as long as the house of Commons. Would back her Brexit exit deal. Which has failed three times before this infuriated, Brexit, tears, including lead, some who wrote to oppose it and said, this, this second referendum would be very, very devised divisive for a country that's already polarized, and I guess this, that I have Mary Louise where this feels different than the conversations. We're having now for many months is everybody's pretty exhausted and it's not just her policies. They feel like they're release, no longer any judgment there, and that she cannot move the country forward. Meanwhile, I mentioned tomorrow, there are elections for the European parliament. How does that factor into what's going on in Britain? Well, it figures a lot normally you and I wouldn't even be discussing a topic like this, this wouldn't get a lot of news. But a lot of people are focused on it not just here. But also, of course across the European Union. The prime minister's inability to deliver Brexit has been almost three years since the vote. It's really alienated. A lot of people in her party last night. I went to a huge rally of this new Brexit party that we've been reporting on, it's only less than six weeks old and already way ahead in polls for tomorrow's vote. I was talking to a number of conservative party members who really feel that maze betrayed this woman named June. Sally been Torey Vogta since I was twenty one and seventy two. She's totally taken a runs away from us and we're now in a dictatorship. Now, of course, Mary Louise, that's total hyperbole the hiking is not a dictatorship. However, I've been talking to Brexit borders now really for the last six eight weeks travelling around England, and I'm hearing a lot of this kind. Incendiary language. Well in the moments we have Frank. I know you keep saying you're done making predictions about Brexit. But what the heck I'm gonna ask you to go there. How much longer do you threesome has she's definitely got a couple. More days of I think on Friday leader conservative backbenchers in the parliament or is going to go talk to talk about stepping down. She's hunkered down tonight in number ten. But I think if the results are very bad on Sunday. It's hard to see a once we get those voters. It's hard to see how today's on for

Nationalist spectre hovers over Spanish poll debate

"Face one of the most divisive national elections in living memory with two electoral blocs, competing to portray each other as an existential threat Spain's feature Ben whole discusses the last days of the campaign within mount our reporter in Madrid. Dusko, you know, second books, but she didn't didn't look. So what I'm not saying this tastes better punch it when I'm gonna kiss just gimme without been Been been. Benito publicly. We've just heard a clip from the opening of one of the televised debates between party leaders, supposedly one of the highlights of this election campaign in how did the party leaders do? Well, they desperately fought to track to the twenty five percent or more of Spanish voters who are still undecided. They were very aggressive polarized dates with the right and left wing candidates bathing themselves in completely opposite colors patriot sons as the socialist prime minister remarked wryly that what TV view as well. Witnessing was a primary of the right wing parties in which they were competing to say the most monstrous things was he being a bit unfair. No, I think he's not justified in saying that he was called the enemy of Spain close friend of those who inch to tear the country apart person who preferred hands bathed in blood too. Into an agreement with moderate forces in reference to the terrorists who tact Spanish cities during the eighties and nineties. It's probably fair to say as well that much of the action in this campaign has been between the three right wing policies. So we're talking about fielded on those the liberal Fazli. Antique Catalan independence party the People's Party, which is the mainstream center-right and vox this insurgent ultra nationalist party. Yes. The arrival of ox is really pulled the other two parties to the right? Is there fearful of losing voters to a party that without any embarrassment? As called for a return to Spanish tradition that recentralization of the state a clamp down on immigration and other populist, nationalist issues that have attracted a lot of people angered by the attempt to session in Catalonia, and who are looking for a home. After the premiership of money her Hoi who is seen as sort of gray and unwilling to attack the secession of the separatist problem in Catalunia head on. And this has been a bit of a gift to Mr. Sanchez, ROY. He's been able to sort of sit back and watches these opponents sort of fight it out. Ironic that as he's moved left to peel off voters from the anti-establishment most, partly he still manages to appear to be the most centrist and moderate of all the politicians because of the parties of the right have moved so far to the right to try to capture that nationalist populist vote. And keep us a sense of how what the polls are telling us about the state of play off to voting on Sunday. Well, the polls point to a very difficult government formation. Scientists is socialist parties palling around thirty percent the traditional center, right? People's Party around twenty sea levels around fifteen, but it must around thirteen or fourteen and vox around eleven and if you put together either left or right block, neither of them adds up to a parliamentary majority which suggests that either Mr. Sanchez will have to make some sort of deal with catalog nationals parties again, which is. In a sense. What led to the collapse of last government? When those parties abandoned him because he would not negotiate a referendum on independence for Catalonia or some sort of cross party agreement between Mr. Sanchez's socialist the party, which has said repeatedly that it will not for a collision with him. But which in the past has supported him and could at some level say we're surrendering our veto of Mr. Sanchez new order to save Spain from an agreement with the separatist that could break apart the country. Whatever happens, it's most likely to be very difficult negotiations into appears that neither the three parties in the right or the two parties in the left will add up to majority and if Mr. Sanchez emerges from this election as the relative at least winner Pablo Casado, the leader of the PP the center right t the big loser.

But they said that they were pulling around three or four percent in recent regional elections and undo and they came out with ten eleven percent there.

His potential coalition of right-wing and religious parties has sixty five seats out of the hundred twenty see connected. So that's majority ancho Feffer reports from Jerusalem for the economist. He recently wrote a biography of Mr Netanyahu what happens next is that seeming with ninety percent of the votes almost counted, assuming these fun results, the president will call in the party next week for consultations, and assuming now has a majority of recommendations he will be called upon to full new government. It'll take probably couple of weeks coalition negotiations and then presented to the Knesset. Probably in early may. We'll have a new Netanyahu government, which sounds more or less like the way things have gone over the past few elections. Why does this one matter every election at says the next one's in four years, but Netanyahu's facing a more severe challenge this time. Both in the identity of his challenger bennigan's was.

He equal Netanya and the other challenge facing was that since the previous election multiple corruption allegations have emerged resulting in three potential indictments to hap- mooring investigations down the road. So I was also going to the nation is ready virgin saying vote for despite all that you've heard about my alleged corruption about those allegations. I mean, how might they affect his premiership his ability to form a government. How do you think that will figure into things from here on out well into the fifth, but that may be pretty sure if he comes avoid indictments, and is charging cord it'll also influenced the coalition goes next you because attention go dish in partners are aware of the pressure into now is under and they will. Probably be extracting a heavier price visiting in his religion. Whether in the shape of ministerial positions in policies and budgets, and they're not just joining the coalition former McGovern joining a coalition which will act to shield him from the indictments perhaps in new immunity legislation or even standing by him. If he insists on meeting prime minister wants charge in court. So is this going to have a huge effect on everything happening going forward and supposing he avoids the imminent danger there, what should we expect from government that that he forms? What kind of campaign promises did he make? Well, really that many campaign policies in this election is election has been about whether or not should remain prime minister, the one big policy bum show that he threw into the Rena just a few days ago was sort of off promise to annex parts of the West Bank. Now, we have to wait and see if he has that far right coalition right now, his potential partners even more to the right than they were the previous coalition. This is an option perhaps of going to bet against say, let's form a grand coalition national unity government, which will be more moderate that doesn't seem very at this point. But it's an option and the other wildcard here is the Trump these plant which is expected to be presented in a few weeks perhaps late may mid June and that will affect policy going forward. So how does the content of the Trump peace plan change the calculus here? Well, it's a new is well refed on what he can expect to find the. Trump east plan his ambassador to run his very close the Trump team he himself obviously hands a good relationship with Donald Trump. And we don't know quite yet. How he's planning to gain the term he could wait for the plastic is attended down. Which almost says we happens. The seniors of ready said that due to all the concessions made by ministration to these ready site just over recognition of Jerusalem as capital they're not going to have anything to do with Trump. And so he made his wait for them to reject it. And then say says then rejected that things have changed and we can do new things in the West Bank. We can change the status of parts of it. We can exaggerate offering to seventy seven that's one possibility. The other possibility is that some of things in the plan off things that Trump, and if you want to work with even if the Palestinians on board, and that could include some kind of change in the state of the West Bank in Gaza Strip all the changes vital status issues that we don't know. Oh, yet, if they'll being the fan weather ten says about them, but mister Netanyahu has has made these promises or half promises to do this annexation. I mean, doesn't that upend? The the whole idea of any Trump peace plan, regardless of its content. Receiving fan. It's something about sitting on going to even agree to dealing with in right now, this falls, we never pass it is they have no interest in engaging with Trump east. So whether or not the drumbeat planned it contradicts latest election promise, maybe a moot point. But it also maybe possible within the parameters of the Trump is we'll have to see what is in that land. Do you get the feeling that the kinds of noises at the Trump administration has been making have intern emboldened mister Netanyahu in his sort of according to the right wing suddenly feels that he has Trump's complete support. And therefore it safe to assume that he also feels that he can make the kind of promises which will bring the far right into the code. It should at the same time. There is a possibility that will use the Trump to try and bring a blue and white, but against his party into the coalition, and in that way, have much more stable government can say against look we both said. During the election, many things we both said that we won't sit with each other in the same coalition. But now with these plan on the table, there is an opportunity to make serious progress towards a final status issues. You don't want me to do that with the foul, right and the government, but you and I can do that together. So we'll have to wait and see how that plays out into Miao now has different options for building code, assuming bennigan's is open to discussing with him a joint government though, so far they've both ruled that. But anything said before election day is subject to review the day after

Riot police, razor wire and fans with flares are regular fixtures in the Indonesian Premier League

"I so let's start as we always do without international correspondents. And when it comes to football fan violence, most people think of Europe or South America, very few of the stray straightens lying on the beach in Bali have any idea that just a few suburbs away? What of the world's wildest sporting leagues is in play in the Indonesian Premier League riot police razor-wire and fans with flares regular fixtures and entertained rivalries are sometimes deadly as David Lipson discovered while shooting at episode of foreign correspondent, it was meant to be a friendly match between Bali nodded and Jakarta's team procedure. But even before we got into the Bali stadium abroad between rival fans breaks. As the fight rolls through the crowd. We start recording piece to camera, but the angry fans don't want us to film and try to grab it our equipment. I know the. Breakdown. Indonesian Premier League. It's common for only one teams fans to be allowed in the stadium. Such is the fear of violent, holy Egan ISM. But in September twenty three year old hunting Assira, a member of Jakarta's fan club. Jack mania had gone to a match against bundle in defiance of such a ban. He wasn't wearing his team colors, but one of the rival Vikings supporters recognized him as a member of Jack mania he was set upon by a mob and beaten to death as hundreds watched on filming the attack and sharing it online. The first time. I watched the shaky video ahead to close my eyes. But I knew immediately. It was a story we should cover the lynching of a young fan aside. There was much more to this story worth exploring the promise of spectacular. Pictures of fans running amok in the stains and surfing, teen wolf style on top of buses on they to games. The history of the entertain rivalries that have led to play as being transported to matches in armored personnel carriers for their own protection. It was a story made for foreign correspondent. So we'd go into Bali to meet the parents of Ari the twenty three year old who was killed. They'd been invited to the match as guests of Jakarta's fan club. Jack, mania cameramen, Phil. And I went into the stands to film Ariz parents and then met up with one of Jack mynas hotline commanders. That's when we noticed what was going on in the knee. Abide Bali, STAN. Douses of supporters had taken this shirts often, we're getting seriously rowdy. I started lighting flays and throwing them onto the field bringing the match to a standstill armored police trucks moved onto the field with water cannon at the ready. Dozens of riot police with shields also moved in. But it did nothing to calm the Bali United stands we wanted to get closer to the action. So we made the long walk out of the Jakarta stands around the razor wire outside and moved into the Bali United zone. But as soon as we emerged from the will and talking listening to sickens were set upon by enraged fans. We've pushed us back down stairs as our brave fixer Ambrose held them at bay footage of them. Misbehaving could lead to long lifetime bans. So they didn't want us filming. So much for that idea. We didn't get a single shot. So we figured the next best thing was getting onto the field. The problem was our media passes didn't allow us access to the pitch. But hey, this is Indonesia, so we thought we'd give it a crack and low and behold the gate closest to us that opened directly onto the field was not locked. We just wanted straight in past the riot police and onto the field so much for the league's claims of heightened security, what followed was bizarre constant disruption flares integration from the Bali stands. Dozens of riot police just leaning on their shields watching it all unfold. One stage about ten fans with their faces covered jumped down onto the edge of the pitch and still no reaction from the police as oppose the police were just letting the anger burn out on its own. I hope they would have sprung into action. If there was a pitch invasion of things really don't have hand. But for an Australian who's used to fan. Being frogmarched out of the cricket just for making a snake out of empty, plastic cups. It was eye-popping. And a reminder of just how long the arm of the law stretches back home after three or four stoppages to the match due to the rowdy fans. The game finally wrapped up Takada one and were now on their way to taking home the premiership Cup. What only realized once I reviewed the tapes back in Jakarta was the Bali fans chanting mafia Unggie mafia dogs. We thought Noah gunning for the Jakarta team or the Jack mania fans, but it was their own team officials and the riff that had sent them into a rage. A rumor had spread that the match had been fixed. And then when the score played out exactly as they'd heard. They went wild since then experts in gambling patterns and match-play have claimed that the match was indeed a setup and there's now a cloud hanging over the Jakarta teams entire premiership season. The league bosses stepped down the claims of mismanagement his replacement Joko Drina who was also somehow allowed to be manager of Jakarta's winning team last year, a clear conflict of interest has this week been arrested by an anti-soccer mafia task force that was set up since the season finished. He's accused of destroying evidence relating to match-fixing. He's had his passport confiscated if. Only we'd had wind of that. When we interviewed him Indonesian football on and off the field is nothing if not entertaining. And despite the deadly rivalries wild fans end corruption we will always welcomed with open arms into the thick of the drum beating choreographed raw of the teetotalling crowd puck from a few minor run ins at that Bali game. So next time you're in town, chick fil it's well worth getting along to a match and a safe bit. You've never seen anything like it. He sells it well, doesn't he David Lipson reporting from Jakarta?

Canada, Justin Trudeau And Beijing discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House

"Let's look now at Canada, which has been presented with a possible diplomatic pickle by the diligence of its police Mang run jail chief financial officer of mobile fund, coons Phob mobile phone concern who runs this way and daughter of the company's founder walls detained at Vancouver airport on Saturday on an extradition request issued by the United States who want to word on charges as yet unknown. Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has today insisted that his government had no involvement in the arrest though. It's difficult to imagine Beijing replying along the lines of. Well, that's okay. Then Thomas in Toronto. How big thing has this been in Canada? She was arrested on Saturday. The story came out on Wednesday. It's been a huge story here. I'm in Canada wa way has been at the center of a lot of media coverage here for some time. Now. In terms of its ambitions and nefarious or otherwise, frankly about what's it kind of once from having this kind of big presence logically and economically in Canada. I think the relationship between China and Canada has also been a raw the big topic for Justin Trudeau for some time as well. He has risen tire premiership pretty much being trying to forge a trade deal directly with Beijing, which is hit several hurdles from Beijing sites. So this whole recent stories the arrest on Saturday, as you say is really a pretty complicated situation for Justin Trudeau it was revealed yesterday in a press conference that he was made aware that this arrest is imminent. I'm he has been forced to to make pretty clear. However, there was no political involvement from Canada in anything to do with. We are of course, looking at the US Canada relationship in a kind of new. Era phebus. Well, we saw G twenty summit Aries recently, the signing of the the new NAFTA trade deal, and that was such a fraught process that it really did sort of take US Canada relations to something of the brink as well. So there's really a lot at play here. And the Canadian media is doing his best. I think it's fair to say to try and pick as unpick any of those as many as those strands as possible Thomas, do you think Beijing or does it seem like Beijing is going to be much mollified? Boy, Justin Trudeau's Ernest invocations of the separation between the executive and the judiciary. I don't think. So actually, I think, you know, Beijing, of course, I think you're seeing this as a as a fight with the US predominantly, and whether it wants to characterize Canada's involvement in this is kind of being a bit the puppet as opposed in some ways to the US demands, given the fight between the US and China is so. Cute right now, I think that will do no favours Canada. Really if it wants to pursue a closer relationship in terms of trade, given the especially we're looking at economic forecast for Canada. And it's expected to slows the national economy in the year to come at the moment. It is the second fastest growing economy in the g seven, but it's been hit pretty hard by I'm oil prices and ongoing economic insurgency in outburts, which is the oil and gas straighter are producing heartland here in Canada.

Leicester City coming to terms with tragedy

"L correspondent Samantha holy hasn't been in London long, and she's still very much settling in but already she's had a major football initiation in the face of a tragedy that deeply affecting one of the clubs that club is listed city, which until recently was heading towards administration, then Thai billionaire put millions into the club, and there was a fairytale turnarounds. So after a helicopter crash at a match England's love of football became even clearer cement, the holy fouled is. Six degrees at Claven cottage little football stadium with a history. Dating back over three hundred years originally a Royal hunting lodge. It's now home for the Fulham football club on the banks of the river tames on the lung the twenty five thousand people who've come along to watch the match. The name. It's move for you experience. Rather than the superman. The crowds are noisy, but will behaved no alcohol allowed in the stadium. So most Gaza was much beer as they can before they enter and then again at half time. The passion is very real and the crowd enthusiastic. In the end it was an enjoyable after noon out, but at fifty pounds or around ninety dollars a ticket. I doubt I'll be back. But my deduction to England's love of football returns in the evening when I'm at home a helicopter owned by the head of list of city football club has crashed after a match in the city. I begin filing from helicopter crashed after a football. And we jump on a train and head to the city in a way, I feel my past and current life. Have for a brief moment collided. I'm reminded immediately of my time living in Thailand, the Thai billionaire bought the list of city club in twenty ten was down and out and hitting the administration. He plowed millions of dollars into the club and the community to bring about a fairytale turnaround. The club won the premiership in twenty sixteen and if. Was in any doubt that the Brits feel deeply about the sports outside the stadium where we stood in the freezing cold. They kept coming through the day and night, we've flowers balloons club t shirts and scarves, the makeshift memorial. Just hit on growing to see everything. You know, what it's because you know, such story pose at the game last night and of which will give a half an hour later on and I've been one of the tod stiles actually come out stadium from. So it's really sad is just as amazing for someone personally know yet the such a connection there. And how is because you part of the communities will do which hospitals around here, which is so sad because of the people involved to just pay respects for visits to the owner and the rest of people on board. Let's impeach Herbie impact on the community must've, well, unless it must have been passed same as when it came to the obviously we will lead. Where he's to the club is to shock to shocking. Who's is so much to the city the Termine and the the whole of firmly and awful. So with the firmly at this time, so that's basically from down two loss to the northern. How community everybody's feeling that so many people don't ever suppose, so many flowers, we've just put some flowers down in the shirt of it will shirt, you know, so basically the communities devastate further, and so I'm not a football lover. But I know is a journalist. It's important for me to understand why British people love football. And why it means so much to them? And I think I have a better understanding of that. This is Samantha holy in London for correspondence for.

"premiership" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk

"What would have been the worst thing about his premiership? I don't think there's one thing. It's a general atmosphere. And then again, it depends on what you're you're on. Ideology is what you would think would be better. Good. I would point out. One of the things is the fact that he is befriending in Europe. All the extreme. Right wing regimes even some strange enough that have some anti semitic connotations to them at the cost of excellent relations with some of the more liberal countries of Europe, France, Germany, Britain, not to mention the Scandinavian countries, that cetera. And he's doing it specifically for two reasons. One in order to get them to try to change the e. u. policy towards Israel and the Middle East, especially in in the criticism against Israel and its policies in the territories. And Secondly, in order to convince some of them to move their embassies to Jerusalem, I would say that I don't know if all this reversible properties is not a reversible, but it is certainly not something that's regarded by liberals. Social Democrats in this country is something positive. Another thing I would I would note would be the deterioration of the relations of Israel with world jury, but especially the Jews. Of the United States. The great majority of home are Democrats and liberals and certainly on all sorts of issues. Religious issues also issues of that sort. There has been a very major deterioration, these relations in. Again, the question is whether this is reversible or not reversible in terms of inside Israel. I think that really the incitement inside Israel and growing hatred between various groups. Certainly, I would consider to be something very damaging because it used to be a society of mutual assistance and the mutual understanding, and it has become a society with a lot of hates inside these ready society shoes.
