Now listen, if you missed yesterday's program, I'm aware cop 26, the climate conference is continuing today in Glasgow the Chancellor today in the spotlight talking about how to rewire finance in night of the climate crisis. A lot of you have been in touch about our special panel cop 26 panel from yesterday's program. If you missed it, catch back up on BBC sounds and I hope you'll take something from it.

He's been held, she's been held excuse me in Iran for 5 and a half years on spying charges which she denies and recently lost her appeal against a second prison sentence. It could mean she'll have to return to jail. Richard ratcliffe, good morning. Morning ever. How are you? Let me start with that. Yeah, cold in truth. It was a very cold night last night. I've certainly got a lot of respect for the guys. I see you sleeping on benches. It was exceedingly cold. Warmed up now. And yet it's day 11 of the hunger strikers, you say, so probably I'm a bit slower, mentally and physically. But the main manifestation of that is feeling the cold more. But yeah, we're still going strong. And you're there the whole time. Yes, yeah, we've got I've got a tent and then there's another tent where we're one of my friends would stay over just to keep a rotor and keep a watch. Probably as the days go on, I get a bit weaker, so it's useful to have the company..

"But in my early days, that was in the 80s I was working with settled as well as royal ballet. It was definitely a time where dancers were meant to be seen and not heard. And it really went against my nature. I got myself into trouble endlessly throughout my career because of it. But I also think that it stood me in it stood me in good stead. Because I was able to say what I felt I've never been afraid of that and for standing up for others. And using your voice, I suppose the other thing is because you don't speak when you're on stage. There is that element of to be seen to be beautiful to be admired, but not necessarily heard. Yes, and I think in the early days, you know, when I grew up wondering, you know, people were often telling me that I had a great talent and that I should be a ballerina and I was thinking, well, how could I be a ballerina? I'm a girl who likes to jump around in the garden or on a pogo stick and be outspoken. Exactly. What I had a great athletic training just being in Australia in central Queensland. But really, I think in the early days, ballerina ballerinas were really icons that you looked at silently on a wall, you looked at these beautiful images of women. And I didn't think I fit that bill at all. And I still don't feel like it that Bill, but what is happening today is marvelous. The dancers have so much more agency..

"Community is the ability to discuss debate and respectfully disagree with a wide range of views and beliefs, and we take our responsibilities in promoting and defending freedom of speech, extremely seriously, alongside our broader obligations to staff and students. We also will not tolerate the bullying harassment of any one in our community, and we have been very clear that what professor stock experienced by some in our community was unacceptable. The university has received numerous inquiries since 2018 questioning professor stock's views and as every juncture, we have fully backed her position at the university and her right to freedom of speech and expression. We have in the past and continue today to thoroughly investigate every complaint regarding this matter, and we will take action, where members of our community do not uphold the behaviors clearly outlined in our dignity and respect policy. In addition, since June 2021, the law has been clarified, so that holding gender critical beliefs are protected in law under the equality act and the university has taken additional steps to reflect this in policies and procedures and inform all staff and students about this change. We also have this statement from the Sussex branch of the university and college union. Neither, you see you Sussex branch or UC U nationally, have endorsed calls for professor stock to be dismissed or accused her of transphobia. The publicly available UC U Sussex statement in support of trans and non binary staff and students reject any calls for individuals to be summarily dismissed and unequivocally support academic freedom. And a stonewall spokesperson said stonewall is proud to fight for a world where lesbian gay by trans and queer are free to be themselves.

"Disagree with them. But there's just no need to buy into the kind of toxic hyperbole swirling around. So to come back to what's happened with you. There are other cases and situations on other campuses at the moment, with other academics. Do you think you stepping down from Sussex? And it becoming as big as it has, do you think it's a bit of a watershed moment? Do you hope it is? Well, I don't know actually. I mean, of course, it's a watershed in the sense that I think it's really drawn attention to a problem that has been there for a while. But no individual me or them should be expected to shoulder this burden of regular attack, ostracism, malignant and all the rest of it, the institutions need to get behind them as employees and as academics to support them through these controversial areas. But how? You know, I looked at an account on Instagram, claiming to represent trans and non binary students at Sussex celebrating massive win for Sussex LGBTQ+ students. And other things, other celebratory photos and messages, some of which you may have seen. I don't know you may have been knocked off the last few days. No, I saw the ding dong the witch is dead one. I saw that as well. And I just wondered because you want debate because you want people to be able to protest where that line is and what are you calling on vice chancellors at universities and management to do. Well, it's a tricky area to negotiate their complex because its speech, you know, they're using speech to intimidate me or my workplace and I'm using speech to say things that they don't like. So I do believe in relatively old fashioned things like argument in the sense of using reasons to produce conclusion and appealing to evidence..

"No. I mean, it's like the defining moment of my life. I think so far, it's given me incredible sense of meaning. And also, I haven't lost my own voice as so many women have. And I know they have, because they're right to me and tell me that they feel like they're suffocating. They work in workplaces and not just in universities, but all over the place, where they can not say what they think where they're employers HR departments have signed up to various lobbying group schemes like stonewalls and as a result, it's just absolutely forbidden to say what they think. So I haven't lost my voice. I'm not going to lose my voice, but you also said, you could cope with stay where you work. Yeah, but I can still talk. No, I know. I'm just trying to understand how both have affected you and whether you think it's been worth it. Yeah, I mean, I think these things are compatible, right? I mean, this isn't the end of my career, I hope I don't know what I'm going to do next, but I intend to make something good out of it. But what I do know is I'm not going to stop talking about the things that I want to talk about. And that's why you're here. And that's why I'm here. So you mentioned that you're a lesbian. I wonder how much you think if any or what role you think your sexuality has played with some of the targeting of you? I'm not sure. I'm really not sure how whether my sexual orientation is that well-known, it's hard for me to tell. But it is definitely true that lesbians are at the sharp end as it were of gender identity ideology in that. So I became aware of it pretty early on, I think, because I was dating and going on to lesbian dating websites and seeing males and I thought that was quite strange because I'm a lesbian and I thought, you know, surely a lesbian should be able to go on to a dating website put in woman looking for women. And are you talking about trans women there or are you talking about? I don't know whether they were trans or not, but some of them had women's names. So some of them looked like they might be trans. Some of them didn't look trans at all. I just don't know, but it is the case that in fact, again, stonewall say this on their website, that trans women who are attracted to females are lesbians. So the categories are changing in radical ways and lesbian is one of them. There's real pressure on lesbians to accept that trans women can be lesbians. And that has made us lesbians aware of this in a way I think the straight people aren't necessarily as aware because there isn't the same pressure on straight women or straight men. So you've got a different perspective within your personal life. I think that was one thing and then I know I know, I've got friends who have been really pressured into dating trans women and they say, well, I'm sorry I'm lesbian. I'm the same sex attracted. And sometimes that's been quite hard, a hard point to kind of get through..

"Can explain it. I mean, you just have to imagine yourself at your workplace where you work. You know, and it's a big sort of theater, like I say, there's lots and lots of people there. Lots and lots of young people and all eyes are on you and all fingers seem to be pointing at you. It's like some sort of medieval experience. You said about hyperventilating. I mean, have you been scared? Well, at that point, I wasn't scared so much as it's incredibly distressed. But I have to go back onto campus to get all my stuff. So, you know, I can't say how I'm going to feel that day. I imagine it's going to be a mixture of emotions, incredible sadness. As well, but yeah, anxiety, no doubt. I mean, my life has changed completely. I felt anxious walking to get the train this morning. You know, yeah. But also I can see that it is very upsetting for you. You've worked there nearly 20 years. Yeah, it's obviously like a huge part of my life and I've had some in the main amazing students amazing colleagues I've taught trans students throughout as far as I know happily and yesterday I got an email actually from a former student who is a trans man. Thanking me for all the support. I gave him while he was at Sussex. So the narrative about me is just so far away from what I think I am. But my experience has been mostly positive and I will really miss teaching there, I will. Why do you think they are? The ones that are doing this, and the ones that are speaking out, why do you think these students are so angry in your view? Well, it's more than about me. There's a wider societal context, isn't there?.

"Not sound like it. In recent weeks, the university has been much more proactive in supporting me than it has been in the past. What's changed? Well, what's changed is it's become a massive embarrassment to them in a way, which means that they have to come out in my defense. I mean, I think previously, I was the embarrassment, so I think the university in the past has, I'm not saying, in any way, tried to stop me saying what I was saying, but it didn't particularly go out of its way to support me when I would say, look, there are colleagues trashing my reputation on Twitter and causing problems for me because my students are likely to think that I'm harmful to them they didn't really respond. Well, day to day sticking with your colleagues and the university just for a bit longer. Has that been very difficult? I mean, of course, we've just been through a pandemic, but I'm imagining we share some of the same spaces as these people as a working environment, some will be wondering, why couldn't you stay? Why couldn't you stick it out, especially when they saw that recently, for instance, 200 academics signed a letter in support of you? Well, I mean, sausage university campus is a closed campus in the downs. It's like a little sort of stage or theater, you know, you're walking across it several times a day to get from class to class. And you're passing hundreds and hundreds of people. So it's all feels quite close as it were. And if, you know, you've got every tenth person who's giving you daggers as you cross the campus or you know that there are colleagues going around asking other colleagues to sign petitions against you. It just becomes really exhausting. So yeah, I mean, maybe other people could be braver and put up with it for longer, but when you add.

Trump-appointed federal judge in Texas blocks Biden’s deportation ‘pause’

"Federal judge in Texas has blocked President Biden's 100 Day moratorium on deportations of unauthorized immigrants. Biden had campaigned on reversing President Trump's tough immigration policies, but the Trump administration and built in obstacles to hamstring his successor, MPR's John Burnett, has more. The Texas lawsuit is the Biden administration's first legal headache in the arena of immigration, and it won't be the last. I think this is clearly the attempt to handcuff the Biden administration, at least in the beginning office stuff moves are for shifty is a senior fellow with the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute. And I think the Trump Administration. It's raining days tried to do everything it could to prevent the Visor administration from ushering in its new immigration policy. The outgoing Trump administration quietly signed highly unusual agreements with at least four states Texas chief among them The agreement, saying, in essence that if Biden officials want to make changes to some of Trump's immigration rules, they have to consult with the state's first immigration advocates were quick to brand the lawsuit baseless and said it won't withstand appeal. But the argument carried the day with Corpus Christi Federal Judge Drew Tipton, a Trump appointee. He wrote that the release of Deported ble immigrants in Texas quote Establishes a substantial risk of imminent and irreparable harm. He slapped a temporary restraining order on the Biden administration and said Texas has 14 days to come back and make its case for a preliminary injunction. No comment from U. S Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The A CL you grassed in a statement, Texas is trying to force the Biden administration to follow Trump's Xena phobic policies.

Trump's intelligence chief warns China is the greatest threat to US since WWII

"Outgoing us administration of president. Donald trump has thus far extended few of the traditional courtesies to the incoming administration of president elect joe biden. There has been no two of the white house no sporting photo op in the rose. Garden and little of the handover briefings from one group of officials to the next however director of national intelligence. John ratcliffe whether trying to help or hinder has passed along. His top worth to the next president in a wall street journal op-ed he has warned. President elect biden that china poses the greatest threat to america today and to worldwide democracy since world war two on joined with more on this point. Isabel hilton ceo at china dialogue. Isabel is the director of national intelligence entirely wrong here. We never entirely wrong but they do manage to you. Make a really terrible case turn radcliffe. I would remind you is director of national intelligence by skin of his teeth. When he was first nominated there was such a sort of howl of protest is lack of qualifications and the fact that he had falsified his own resume that that that trump at one point had to withdraw nomination before trying again. So you know as a kind of bond with the distinguished record nuanced analysis. I would you know maybe take it with a pinch of salt. That said clearly that the you know that china is a major challenge to democratic values of the united states. is meant to defend this. After a couple of problems with this framing one. It is clearly designed to To constrain at the incoming administration that is trying to take very different approach to foreign policy and the outgoing administration is trying to narrow the ground so saying that china is the greatest threat to freedom. Well you know okay It is true that china has indulged in ip theft. Absolutely true surprise just as the united states by the way did against the uk in the twentieth century. is it that may be ongoing espionage. Certainly and china certainly has nationalist ambitions. It certainly trying to bend the global rules to serve its own interest that is what big powers do including the united states. So the problem is is not the diagnosis. If you like. It's the reverend is that the trump administration has offered over the last four years which have simply made it easier for china to advance. Its case so the i think dangers here. One is the exaggeration of china's powers. And that's something we saw with the soviet union towards the end of the cold war. That if you have security agencies whose prosperity depends on building a threat they will big up a threat and so right to the moment when the soviet union collapsed we were hearing from. Us intelligence and security agencies that the world was about to be overwhelmed by soviet communism. And there's a bit of the same syndrome going on here but the second problem is the complete ineptitude of the trump administration encountering the chinese efforts to do that you have to build alliances not destroy them. And you have to make sure that your own offer has credibility. Most people prefer living a well-functioning democracy with personal freedoms trump has not been the best advert for that. At least for the trump's the united states is not the finest moment for democracy. And so you know yes. Of course there is a challenge here to challenge values challenge a political system but the way to country is with the integrity of our own political systems including that of the united states red cliff talks of china operating an influence campaign inside the united states. And on the one hand. That's a somewhat fatuous statement because everybody operates influence campaign inside the united states and indeed in pretty much every other country but is there anything especially sinister or dangerous about what china is doing. Ratcliffe also talks of them targeting members of congress. Well again no surprise. China has has done this an onion eternal lays it all out if you look at anything to do with the united front work department. Which is that bit of the party which has always existed which is intended to manage relations with non party elements. It used to be largely working within china building relationships or or not with religious authorities or with business. People are not in the communist party. Now that china's going global so has the united front work department and it has teamed up with a with the entity in the party that used to manage overseas chinese affairs so and it has put an enormous amount of money into this since the beijing olympics which was regarded as a pr disaster for china in so many ways Would've been the results. Well according to the pew survey in the last month china's reputation has never been lower so yes. China is putting great efforts into influence building and so far. They've been a terrible flop now. There is an element of this which is elite capture. Which again was going pretty. Well i think certainly in the uk for example in an example of elite capture would be the approach of the cameron government to china which you know proclamations of the golden decade. And so on. That's her you know very much again. If you look at elite attitude to china largely because of china's overreach there has been a big backlash everywhere from australia to the united states to europe. You hear the same message. so yes. they're making an effort but is it working. No it's not just one final thought and it's it's a concern that ratcliff doesn't raise for obvious reasons but is there any kind of danger of between now and january twentieth china just thinking there's nobody watching the shop if we're ever going to try and pull something big when never gonna get another chance like this. Well of course the big worry. I mean you might say. Hong kong was that the big warriors taiwan. And there's been a lot of jostling as you know in taiwan. I guess another option is the is the india china border again. We've seen quite a lot of live action there this year. My personal views. That taiwan is a step too far think china has a really a realistic understanding of what it would take not only to take taiwan but then to make that occupation work. And this you know. There are plenty of warnings about how difficult that is. And is this the moment to risk so much in pursuit of that. Of course the regime wants to recapture taiwa are how reunite or however they care to phrase it. But i think we've pretty much got twenty forty nine before that becomes acute in their many other Things that many other things that can be done to make taiwan life difficult short of a military assault isabel hilton front.

Shocking right I mean that's what they don't teach you in school. Of course that's not true. This logic makes no sense. Thankfully FBI director. Christopher. Ray was also at the press conference and he had this to say the FBI is the primary agency responsible for investigating malicious activity against election infrastructure maligned foreign influence operations and election related crimes like voter fraud and voter suppression or intimidation, and that's exactly what we've been doing.

We are not going to tolerate foreign interference in our elections or any criminal activity that threatens the sanctity of your vote or undermine public confidence in the outcome of the election. When we see indications of foreign interference or federal election crimes, we're going to aggressively investigate and work with our partners to quickly take appropriate action. We're also coordinating with the private sector both technology and social media companies to make sure that their platforms aren't used by foreign adversaries to spread disinformation and propaganda. We've been working for years as a community to build resilience in our election infrastructure and today that infrastructure remains resilient. You should be confident that your vote counts. Early unverified claims to the contrary should be viewed with a healthy dose of skepticism. We encourage everyone to seek election and voting information from reliable sources namely your state.

Those addresses where then used that and apparently widespread targeted spamming operation. The sender's claimed they would know which candidate the recipient was voting for in the November 3rd election, for which early voting is already going on. Federal officials have long warned about the possibility of this type of operation. Such registration lists are not difficult to obtain. Last night after reports of the emails first surfaced, Christopher Cribs the top election security officials at the Department of Homeland Security tweeted that the emails are meant to intimidate and undermine American voters confidence in the elections. He urged voters not to fall for sensational and unverifiable claims, reminding them that ballot secrecy is guaranteed by law.

"Experts stock trading day guide Jay Ratliff good evening Mister Ratcliffe how are you I could not be better thank you yes Sir so first off tell me about. first class potty breaks. what you're in first class taken. yeah but if you're not in first class and you've got to go and the other laboratory is full then you just have to do your PP dancer whatever and wait or get arrested yeah that's what happened was we had date I believe is asking Alaska Airlines yeah job that we had the gentleman in coach too we had to use the lavatory and tried to stroll up to the one that was you know just a few yards away from where he was that bloody tennis at all you've got to use the one in the back and that's when the altercation began we don't know if alcohol drugs any that stuff played a part but you know what you have to feel for the people that are seated in first you turn around to head for the back of the airplane where the laboratories are normally at all a lot of those single aisle aircraft and there's a bank card the the the beverage cart is halfway down the aisle and it's it's going to be another forty five minutes four gets down there comes all the way back so you can try to get by or you can try to hold it or you can try to hit up first class and hope he gets to the door before they stop you in many no locket do your business and get on apologize with it's not a federal rule by any stretch it's simply an airline policy this is a first class laboratory is for the first class passengers and those in coach need to use the laboratories in coach now when you pay for a first class seat are you also paying for the first class laboratory are you just paying for the first class treatment and or is that part of the first class treatment now what happens what would have happened for example if the gentleman and I use the term loosely because I saw the video and he didn't act like a gentleman no we did not now now if he had asked politely do you think you might have been allowed to use the restroom and first class perhaps it just it really depends I I've seen people back and forth using it the and there's times flight attendants. will turn their head the other way at first you the bag of the beverage cards in the aisle down there if it's being. yeah traffic by many people out of coach I've seen the flight attendants make an announcement over the PA system just reminding everybody a first class laboratories for first class passengers those in coach please use the laboratories that are designated for your area not trying to be mean but you know part of the it's not like they're any better any bigger furnished any different it's just the fact that you know that one laboratory is for the sixteen people if you well that are up front and then the rear laboratories there's normally a few of our for the rest of the aircraft and it's it's part of the idea of trying not to take off the people they're spending the most money to be on the airplane because if you own delta airlines you recognize about nineteen seventy to eighty percent of the aircraft's revenue comes from the four front part of that aircraft as a result you want to do everything that you can to turn he take care of those men and women especially the road warriors the travel every week and if you don't want to crying babies up there you don't want to disrupt the people up there you don't want to have people that are going back and forth and using the lavatory making it unavailable for those in first class when they need it so it's a fine line to be sure but the bottom line is yeah the people in first class have access to the first class lavatory now certainly there's nothing that prevents the people in first class from stretching their legs walking to the back of the aircraft and using the laboratory in the back you know many people do that just to stretch our legs on a long flight but man does it really work the other way around. alright so let me ask you this. if. if the gentleman again I use the term loosely on the Alaska Airlines flight. had instead. after being thwarted in his attempt to use the first class laboratory because the their coach laboratory whatever was full or was obstructed right if he had peed on the floor would they have had to redirect the flight and what do you been arrested then yes yes because of that point in time you are interfering with the duties of a flight attendant it's a great it's a felony it's a federal offense and they will land that aircraft and you will be arrested fined and yeah you'll be you'll be in store for a lot of unpleasantness sept after that point is people found that over the years because of flight attendants are aboard an aircraft not to service drinks there there too. the idea of being emergency evacuation specialists are there for safety and if you are an airplane and you know we're kicking around the flight attendant we basically make it. difficult or impossible for them to do their job of monitoring their station taking care of passengers being prepared for an in flight emergency were interfering with that and that puts us at risk of being arrested for a felony and that happens weekly book from individuals and act upon it but if you think you fit is a bodily function and you cannot control it at that point because you can't get to the laboratory I mean what the hell do you do it yeah I I I don't want to get into everything that people do on an airplane and they've got that kind of. some people you know look for for alternate ways to take care of it but it's it's really unfortunate because a lot of times it's just a blighted tenet being Teske guy I mean I I've seen some of being kind of petty and look you know sherry and I normally sit in first class anytime we fly but we don't pay the first class fares we fire tickets well in advance we get the discounted non refundable very cheap first class fares if there is such a thing that there's not that much more than coach so we were seated up there quite a bit in and I see people strolling back and forth all the time and I really don't think anything of it especially with the you know what we have backed me either way of the bag beverage carts going back and forth up and down the aisles yeah very quick flight but if you've got your eight ten people you've got several people waiting around up up front in the area around the cockpit well it's a little bit of a safety issue not a huge one but a little bit of one but it's also an inconvenience to the people in first class and that's kind of what it becomes a problem I've never really seen it escalate Gary Jeff to the point where they're shouting loud words or any sort of a verbal or physical altercation because I've seen flight attendants handle it pretty well. but the bottom line is that you know that's the rules and if we go against the rules we have to pay the and we're calling in this killer the gentleman that you mentioned on the Alaska Airlines flight Nelly. be arrested prosecuted probably face a fine from the FAA and the airline may send him a bill for the diverted landing we could be seventeen thousand dollars but you also get notification for Alaska Airlines you never flying is again hole in other airlines me follow their lead where he'll be taken the train or bus any worry after the meeting go. okay if you can hold out of it that little bit of of trouble going to cause the bro lot of years if you can hold on a few minutes I want to ask you about the latest with the Boeing seven thirty seven Max and some things that

so that's the exciting thing in that has really kept me occupied these last couple years our congratulations that's great news so here I mean the last time we spoke you talked about the meditation and how you slow down just a bit because of the arrival of the street young children in your life I'm glad that it's screwed no tremendously yeah the life has its its up mime incident down moments and sometimes you got to focus on certain areas of life and definitely I was yeah right in the middle of looking out to buy bees and and young kids and and they're they're growing and maturing and starting to fall on their on line in the world sorry it leaves me free to help others so yeah so we're looking at like a seven year old and nine year old and an eleven year old by now yeah proximity around that age yeah correct yeah how has it affected them whole has he usually use your voice court and talks right so what's going on with them then just growing into fairly happy healthy kids all the normal problems kids face my biggest eyeing is to help them graw when they need it but to provide really a great model for them to follow a field with the greatest thing a kid needs in their life is good role models and someone who doesn't lock tight like to seriously but enjoys life you know as much as possible Sir when I see me passionate about helping others in teaching meditations I fact I even took my eleven year old on retreat with me on an adult's retreat and yeah that was a fun experience and hang you know I noted being really well in the adults really quite locked his presence there so that was a really positive experience and then he gets to see his dad you know enjoying what he's doing so that's a loss of pleasure from man yeah they help some girl right now where is the best place for someone to connect to follow up on what you're doing sorry the website I now have a skillful maligned dot net so that is really applies for all leaders to gonna and find out more about

I was like hi within my life I've chosen to have kids and yeah my meditation really almost you shouldn't try this but it did it really sort of took a backseat to my kids and I felt it as well through

Like is scope Atari information evidence that is going to trickle out because they demanding that it get out. Now, the other thing that they're finding is there is a nexus with Komi and Brennan, I really wanna find out what the involvement of Brennan and Clapper are in all of this as well.

They were in a panic about evidence of collusion quickly unraveling, and he's a member of the House Judiciary committee explaining these from Gresham Democrats were on the offensive over bar and his refusal to comply with their demands given they were concerned that the claims of collusion were on Raveling. That's only a part of the story though, and Komi is contradicting himself left. And right. He actually contradicted his own memo on the Trump Oval Office meeting. And you know, there are a number of discrepancies that that he's put on record now because he keeps talking and he's keeps putting his foot in his mouth and the FBI steel story as we said is falling apart because everybody knew everybody knew before the first as a warrant was even.

He told me he said, I had some unexpected life events that cost me lots of money just one after another Joe he said they kept hitting me. I could never catch a break before I several years had gone by and I was drowning in debt because you know, credit card debt, especially if you don't pay into the principal every month. It starts to compound like a big snowball. Well, there's a. A wise saying that until you're so miserable and your current situation. You're not going to take the risk to step out and make changes.
