Who Is Isaac Levido?

"At the end of this month. The United Kingdom will leave the European Union and in so doing fulfill the key election pledge of conservative prime minister. Boris Johnson. To you get brexit done. We have followed that. He's paralyzed blocked. Dinner Lean capable of functioning as Anaconda that swallowed the neither moving one way on the other. He's lean except of course that brexit will not get done on January thirty first Brexit exit will not get close to done on January thirty first if and when Brexit can truly be said to have got done it will be still further pointless tedious Diaz wasted years from now but none of this matters to the Prime Minister and party. Who promised to do it? What does matter at least to them is that they won a thumping majority in last month's general election for that the Tories Oak considerable thanks and have doubtless already paid considerable? Money to a rashly officially beaded thirty something from Port Macquarie New South Wales who served as the Party's campaign director. His name is Isaac Lovato. It is. It's always hard to know how much credit to extend to such figures. Strategists spin-doctors string-pullers special advisers. It seems reasonable to assume the people capable of subtly manipulating public opinion in favor of their paymasters Also able to cunningly inflate their own reputation for being able to do so but there is little doubt that Levino presently basks in the warmest regard of the recently returned conservatives Dominic Cummings Boris orest Johnson's senior adviser and a man not known for self deprecation in much. The same way that circles are not known for being square has described Libido As a hundred times better at running campaigns than me so who exactly is is a collado and how did he get here. La Vida learned his trade from his fellow. Australian Lynton Crosby a veteran political strategist. Who has made something of a speciality of coordinating somewhat belligerent and populist campaigns for parties wrightwood of center in Australia and elsewhere though crosby's record in the UK is not one of unalloyed success excess? He did twice help. Boris Johnson get elected mayor of London no small accomplishment in a city not generally hospitable to conservatives Isaac veto worked on Crosby's twenty seventeen general election campaign for Theresa May an enduring. Listen perhaps in what not to do as a nation. We face the most important potent five years. I can remember. That is why I took the decision to call a general election so that we have a strong and stable leadership we need old to see us through brexit and beyond but La Vida made his name properly back in Australia in two thousand eighteen where he served as deputy director of the Liberal Party party. Australia's annoyingly named Conservative Party in May two thousand nineteen the Liberals led by incumbent. Prime Minister Scott Morrison steeled themselves also a general election which nobody believed they could win. With the apparent exception of Isaac La Vida veto helped create a strategy which relied on a ruthless roofless focus on the merits of the prime minister such as they were the shortcomings of the opposition leader and brutally simple messaging. It was a template readily adaptable optimal to Boris Johnson. Jeremy Corbyn and getting brexit done as is proper for a habit to of the shadows. LA- Vito has done little press press and let little be known about him. The impression conveyed by colleagues however is far from that of a fire breathing bully reports to Picton Ernest. Decisive voices won't see working eighteen hour days and maintaining a clear focus on what is required for victory undistracted by the gaffes bloopers or short circuits of the candidate which in a campaign for Boris Johnson must require a superhuman serenity libido and his pair of young New Zealander Digital Gurus. Ben guerin and Sean topping also understood that social media campaigns need to be effective rather than outwardly sophisticated. They were clearly on embarrassed to be seen pushing what looked to anybody but angry. Daily Mail reading pensioners like absurd amateurish. Nonsense Libido was not however shy about removing other senior Tories from the spotlight. At the end of Shepherd's Crook early in the campaign at related would housing and Mannequin Jacob. Rees Mogg intoned some ill-advised remarks about the victims of the two thousand seventeen grenfell tower disaster. I think if either of us were in a fire whatever the brigade said we would leave the burning building. It just seems the common sense thing to do and it is such a tragedy that that didn't happen but I didn't do with race or class. Rees MOGG has has bailey been heard from since and for that much.

Campaigning gets underway in UK general election

"Let's get more on that story about the UK hey general election getting underway joined in the studio by terry siesta as a political journalist with a regular chronicler of all things westminster welcome back terry to the show as if to prove the fast paced nature of things here in the UK capital some breaking news more news for the government yes this is supposed to be the big day when boris johnson launches his election campaign he's been to see the queen this morning to tell her that parliament is now officially dissolved in the campaign is properly up and running and what has happened on the first day he has had to lose a a member of his cabinet the welsh secretary alan cans who has just been forced to resign fine because it's to do with the question of what he had known about evidence that one of his aides had given in a rape trial and it turns out he said that he hadn't known about this misleading evidence that his his former aide given it it turns out that he didn't know that this was damaging very damaging to the trial and he has now on with absolutely dreadful timing for the government to offer his resignation i guess is as a sanitary lesson about you know tori pledges to get brexit done that's absolutely fundamental to the whole campaign and this is another sort of wheel another spoken the wheel of the the shows exactly how that's going to be yes i mean boris johnson later today's expected to set out what he wants to be talking about during this election campaign and that we expect will be things like you know very much his domestic agenda things like spending on hospitals things like funding schools things like more funding for well police officers and of course on top of that his his claim that he will increase you know get brexit don t won't be it'll be more uncertainty that it will be finished by by the end of january the trouble is that in the campaign such as it's been so far he i mean and this happens in every campaign has to be said but the things are knocked off course so not only have we had this resignation today we've also had for instance jacob reasonable see making some new is the leader of the house of commons at the moment making taking some extremely ill advised comments about the grenfell fire and appearing to suggest that if people had had common sense than they might have not done the fire brigade told them to do which was put in that they might have they might have escaped and then one of his colleagues piling in on that seeming to suggest that jacob rees-mogg was after all a very clever person might and you know this played really badly now there are always gifts in an election campaign i i think the what's the what's difficult tell what cuts through to your voters who are out in their constituencies having politicians turn up in in big buses and wanting to shake their hand i think the problem with something like the grenfell jacob rees more cases it plays into what people already think about certain members this government i in jacob rees-mogg case that he is a very well off privileged man who is not someone who either personally or professionally has much idea of what it might be like to either fight a fire and a tower block live in one and that sense of seeming out of touch i think is is a big risk particularly for the conservative party eh now one thing that might be different about this campaign you're quite right of course they're always these precious blowing things of course is potentially that there are maybe more players or more parties as we are more groups within a westminster and it's on barons who will be pitching punches some people saying look essentially this is a four party election and maybe the brexit issue makes it so oh there's there's much terry i mean clearly we still fundamentally have two party system but there seems to be something different in in the water what do you make about yes i think this is going to be a hard election to predicts partly because we're starting from a point where you have minority government essentially going into an election so you have a lot of conservatives and we've seen them over the last few days standing down former conservative people who've been thrown out of the party people like hank clark people like philip hammond people like the former minister advisor today in traditional conservative seats and they will obviously be replaced by new candidates but you know the votes in some of those areas might be up for grabs recede in the liberal democrats at the moment going into the campaign quite strongly with the very remain message and we've seen in the labor party is actually being fairly unclear about what their brexit position is which is not to say that brexit is going to be the only issue in this election election but

Backlash grows to Johnson's suspension of UK Parliament

"Some federal one day on and the row over prime minister Boris Johnson's decision to seek the suspension of the UK's parliament for five weeks is showing no signs of abating the main opposition labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says plans are well under way by a cross party group of MPs to stop the prime minister forcing through a no deal brexit through parliament what we're gonna do is try to politically stopping on Tuesday with a parliamentary process in order to legislate to prevent a notice of brexit and also to try and prevent him shutting down Paul maturing is off to the crucial period the implications this country a very very serious for his part the cabinet minister Jacob Rees Mogg describe the anger is a confection of candy floss and said there was ample time for parliament to discuss brexit and his fellow conservative MP mark from swan also dismissed the outrage as complete nonsense the reason I think that the reminders are reacting this is because they become to realize form of the we all actually leaving at least people all screaming blue murder because that's not what they want I've been discussing today's exchanges of our political correspondent at Westminster Susan whom no one's come down on this and I I as you hear their supporters of prime minister Boris Johnson have been out in force to attack the claims he's trampling all over the U. K.'s rather delicately balanced on written constitution but of course opponents fear at the suspension of parliament leave some notes Thomas hole to seize control and stop the very possibility of leaving with no deal at the end of October and they're not limiting their efforts simply to parliament are that they have also taken this in some cases to court there specifically a case out of the court of session in Edinburgh in Scotland they're looking at is something that my producer resulted like this started awhile back and today they've been seeking quotes cold an interim and to take to stop parliament being suspended without a full hearing next week on September the six I mean it's a very difficult constitutional ground because the queen has already grown to the suspension but it's the advice and what she did that which is being challenged in the court and the judge lord Dougherty has for talk to think about his decision overnight on the course will resume at ten AM tomorrow morning in October and there's a great deal of opposition as well within the conservative ranks including some former government ministers who are now in the back benches and today the news has come out that the leader of the conservatives in Scotland a very popular figure Ruth Davidson has quit she made the announcement in which she said she was still confident however the Boris Johnson wasn't really prepared to leave the E. U. without a deal I said I'm right now I I also might rightly I need to know are you actually trying to get a deal or not I he categorically assured me that he walls so I want to get a deal I believe that's what he and his government are working towards I support him in the efforts I think her words will have been at quite a relief to Boris Johnson and to support as well as just one back it up for a moment because this Davidson is a very unusual figure Scottish conservatives have a traditional image as quite a sort of three D. golfing gross more hunting shouldn't fishing logged out she's young she's female urban gay and very very personable she's credited with an amazing turnaround in Scottish conservative fortunes and she's very much oppose Boris Johnson in the brexit campaign she was on the other side arguing for the UK to remain in the U. and some have linked her decision to resign to this news that parliament will be suspended but she says her decision is largely personal she had a baby with her partner earlier this year and that the house is played a big part in her decision I she didn't therefore it used the speech to settle for missile under him which is what some of them had had feared she would do and become a rallying point for conservatives who opposed to him but it's a warning in this for him in some way he will know that there is a warning she has since been quite tight spoken that Boris Johnson isn't quite her Cup of tea in the past and I think it will be clear that he's one of the wrong borough time with her that she's given her support that he's got to get that deal box box if he doesn't get the deal if he goes for no deal I think the situation will be very

Another dance round the May poll: Brexit

"The Briggs it saga rolls on last night to a private meeting of conservative. Members of parliament, the Prime Minister Theresa may made the grandest of gestures she said to have been close to tears. She told them that if they backed her exit deal with the European Union. She would resign. Mrs Maes proposal took two years to hammer out the parliamentarians, including many in her own party have overwhelmingly voted against twice now with her promised to fall on her sword. Some who used to strongly oppose deal are coming on side among them. Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson. Meanwhile, parliament has been considering a series of eight alternative Brexit proposals. In what's known as indicative voting? I can now announce the result of today's recorded bass on missions relating to the United Kingdom's withdraw. It's an effort to determine whether any of them could command a majority in a formal vote. But last night all of them were rejected the is two hundred sixty four the knows two hundred seventy two. So the news habit for month nine threes. Amaze been trying to get her Brexit deal through parliament has been heavily rejected twice by MP's. John Peet is Brexit editor team decided that the best chance. She has persuading them to not change their minds and back is to promise to resign when they for it. And that does seem tempted some conservative MP's over onto her side. But why why should her leaving make it look more palatable to them? Well, the bulk of the opponents to her deal in the conservative party are hotline. Brexit is using it's too soft, and they would quite like to see her go because the who've been to replace somebody more like them and will the ploy work. I mean, the the deal that she still wants to get across the line was thumped badly. Twice is this going to change the calculus? I think the arithmetic is still against Theresa May. I mean, the big hope when she made his announcement was not just that quite a few conservative MP's would come over to side and some of them did including leading members of the European research. Right. Jacob rees-mogg the hardline record here types. The hotline breaks types, many of them have not come over. But what we really needed to to get to marriage to unionists on her side and they announced after her resignation offer. They still were not going to support her deal. Right. And meanwhile, there has been this sort of separate effort to come up with some kind of alternate alternates. Eight of them in fact, and none appeared to get consensus last night. What is the plan b what if MRs may can't get the deal across the line? Well, I think the problem of the big sort of central program for for Westminster's. There's no majority for always anything at the moment. I think the process that MP's have initiated against the government's wishes of saying look we want to find out what kind of deal by the best child's. Is hearing majority will continue all of its last night went down. But some of them were really quite close in particularly one to keep Britain permanently in customs union with the European Union which lost by eight votes compared with her deal, which are the last lost one hundred forty nine days. So I think you'd have to say that the consensus in Westminster is moving towards a slightly different deal that would have permanent customs union. Mrs Maes offer to resign will now start a full blown leadership contest that's been warmer about for months and macelroy. One of our senior editors has been considering the front runners. There's certainly a number of politicians with the lean in Hungary, look for Theresa May's job. And if we start with our own cabinet, you have some people like, Jeremy hunt and savage of it that foreign secretary and home secretary me that go big jobs both of them switched from remain to saying they would deliver Brexit. They did that for number reasons. But one of the big reasons is they want to be able to say to the conservative selectric. I delivered Brexit for you. Then there are those who have perhaps even leaner and hungry. Looks lean doesn't seem quite the right word for Boris Johnson. Little sees this and make this all to stand toll in the whoa. He's a strong Brexit here. A large. Blonde man child who is in musing random often unreliable, and he's made very clear indeed that he sees himself as being the bearer of the crew Brexit here crown, but he hasn't competition, and that is from Michael Google who is very intellectual character Brexit, and the optimal has called strains intentions to be placed on friendships and relationships perhaps on the remain side who feel that they could live with Michael g-o-v more readily than with this huge bombastic figure Boris Johnson. John. It's clear now that Mrs Maes political future is uncertain woulda leadership contests and new leadership perhaps help with getting towards a Brexit resolution or does this only add more chaos to a very chaotic thing. I think at least contests in the lighter departure may just make things complicated. It's not clear that that will help the UK to find a solution that is acceptable base to the conference and more importantly to the rest of the European Union decision to to offer to resign. It's conditional on getting her deal through. So you've deal does not go through. She may rescind her decision and say we'll look to stay around for bit longer. But I think on any analysis she's in a very much weakened position. And most Tarim peace now expected to go if not in in sort of may by the end of the summer in any case. So I think they are beginning to talk about it possible replacements and organizing leadership contest, I won't ask you the difficult. Question of what happens in the long? Term. Whether you think we're any clearer on on the outcome of all this. But what happens in the shorter term, which we expect next. Well, I think MP's will probably continue the prices of trying to win through indicative to see it as an alternative changed version of the brakes at deal might win a majority. The government will continue probably the next few days to sort of lobby hard to see it as a possibility of securing a majority for this is May's own deal that will play out for the next few days. But it's gonna run up against the deadline, which is Europe. Ian union said you have until April the twelve to decide that's already an extended deadline. So the stage after that will be should they extend the deadline further, and I expected there will be an emergency European summit at which there will be another extension. But it probably will be until something like the end of may, and it will be contingent on Britain holding European elections, which will be the process even

"Prime Minister golden my ear later said for generations. All will be told of the miracle of the immense planes from the United States bringing the material that brought life to our people. Without that battle that Bali battle at the valley of tears, and they're out the American support of Israel. There would not have been in Israel to recognize as the proper sovereign over the Golan Heights. And this relationship from Truman to Trump is a tradition of supporting Israel, deeply, and I think about that every day as I serve as America's secretary of state. Mike gallagher. I have a column in the Washington Post congressman the just went onto the homepage defying about what defines a presidency and of the three things I think defined the Nixon presidency the intervention in the war is one of those three the other two being the opening to China and the establishment, the environmental regime of pragmatic realism at the sequel that different stuff, and, but it it matters mostly when history compresses presidency into a few paragraphs, what is the biggest mountain valleys matter. I don't think the Muller reported much of a valley. But I think the support of Israel is a big mountain for Donald Trump. What do you think? Completely agree and speaking of Nixon, congratulations to you on your appointment that has been making foundation. I can't think of anyone else better suited to that task. Thank you really look forward to joining me there. It's one of the few presidential library visited excellent speech by Mike Pompeo further evidence that whoever holds the Wednesday Hewitt's must be a brilliant. Reminds us from pale is just an interloper. He was excited. Tommy preceded Mike Gallagher, and it goes back to David Dreier, the memory John Campbell had it for years. But the the member of the moment, the patriot mobile member of the moment, I always want people can talk about the world. Well, Senator Cruz, and I actually introduced a Bill last month recognizing Israel ready to go on which is why I was very excited that the president made this decision this weekend. And really it's just a decision by President Trump to acknowledge the reality on the ground since nineteen Eighty-one Israeli lodger fiction and administration has extended to the Golan Heights, and it rarely control over this territory provide their ally with sensible borders, and it serves as the key buffer with the cath next door in Syria. And so I think we have to be clear for those who criticizes decision that there were only two options either Israel controls Golan or eleven inches and the Assad regime will control to a lot and in the aftermath of a brutal civil war in which sharla chemical weapons against people and flooded, it puncher with Irani, and align terrorist groups getting highground back does not make sense. I'd love to hear anyone make a positive case for why we should reward Assad behavior and Lebanese Hezbollah by siding with them against Israel. There is not an critics of this decision site. U N resolutions on pay on a briefing. A UN resolution not a suicide pact. And I've been to go on. Now. I haven't we didn't get to do the tour with the national security adviser because of weather, but I was there three years ago. I think Prager and Gallagher taking a bunch of listeners back there this year. And anyone who sees it just knows it, and, you know, even a marine Intel officers gonna to you cannot give up that much high ground and protect your country completely. In addition to the UN thing, which we can get into the other pushback, I've heard that there's some sort of equivalency between and that Ukraine to be absolutely clear. This is a false equivalency Vladimir Putin invaded and occupied Crimea, which euro threat to Russian security, Israel and contrast candidate possession of the go on hikes at the tail end of the six day war and with the airball ganged up on our ally in an effort to eliminate it from the face of the earth. So you simply just compare territory acquired as part of a defensive water protectors really borders with Putin's landgrab against his people neighbor now congressman Gallagher switch over if I can't Brexit. I I did the same thing with Admiral Stavridis earlier, it appears that the hard line leave are realizing a half, a loaf is better than no love and. Both Boris Johnson. Jacob rees-mogg have both endorsed that it appears I've indicative votes today. They wanted to vacate anything except mass confusion it's going to be mazed deal or not leaving. What what do you think is going to happen? And if they take me out the United States do immediately. I can test a bit of hesitancy to predict because it's almost like the breathless reporting the ad about each week. We were going to get the Muller reported each week. We're going to get a resolution of Brexit, and it never comes. I maybe I saw the story that REEs Mogg, and some others might support the may option. I still think ordeal deal is unlikely to pass base. Something conversations I've had in the last twenty four hours with some peas and some other people for example from the Henry Jackson. Diety in London, but we continue to narrow in which he offers resignation votes in the nineteen twenty two committee, which is the group of backbench conservative MP's. But we'll take my guess is that something with the customs union will pass it's very hard to protect at this point. Okay. Last question Armed Services Committee did not like the navy's proposal that mothball the Truman. I mean. Nobody liked it. Am I right in my assessment? Both rob Wittman. The ranking member former chairman of power and Joe Courtney, the current chairman both pushback strongly, a great line of questioning pointed out, the obvious fact will to really wanted that by twenty seven we will only have nine carriers under the plan, which means it will make it difficult but not impossible as the navy acknowledged to carries out there and search three in the event of a crisis. That's simply unacceptable, and then she'll corny in questioning also got to an essential point. Which is that we've already got about five hundred million sunk costs for the nuclear reactors as part of the. Extension, which you don't actually save that money simultaneously by undoing attention. Because I think he's Dave about seventeen million. You take a bit more of the lifespan of this. But one we're reducing our carrier presence in two or not actually saving a lot of money in the process. Simply does not make that much that I it doesn't make a liquor said, I didn't know about the sunk cost. Now, I know that theory of some cautious don't get trapped by him. But when they're that large. But the asset is real. I mean sunk cost is usually theory applied to bat assets. The Truman's a good asset. Well, absolutely and Shanahan made this point that well, you know, we still have some time or we could reverse this decision on that signals an enormous amount of uncertainty from the highest levels of the Pentagon and second the defense industrial base doesn't work like that. You can't simply an honest which turned office switch at a moment's notice. People respond and take enormous lead time you have to make investments in the shipyard. Make personnel investment. You lose a lot of expertise in many cases. That depends industrial base is fragile and Medicaid. So I think any hesitancy or missing from the navy doesn't normally damaged industrial bit.

"Back to our top story of the day. And we've had an offer to resign from the prime minister of Britain and lots of votes by m pays but still no breaks at consensus at Westminster last night. The Commons rejected Asia possible next steps for the withdrawal process and not one got a majority the mall. Let's go live to Westminster web Lindbergh's. Anna Edwards is standing by Anna. What did we learn from last night's indicative voting? This is very hard to keep up with. It isn't good morning at well. I'm afraid to have no answer yet. As to why Brexit goes exactly to parallel wells, coexisting Brexit land. And we learned a little bit more about one of them yesterday about what he did the MP's in the house will support for a softer Brexit. There was no majority for anything as you say the kind of designed that way though, there was always the plan that the second stage back with the move Monday and the narrow of options, but every proposal on the table fail to security majority. No wonder the pound retreated as a result, the closest thing to a majority came something like a customs union and the outcome that got the most vote was a second referendum on the deal. But what's interesting about the process of how it relates to the parallel Brexit, well, which is three as meaningful votes. Well, her oh, whether this whole process will just drawing support for her deal and she's offering to resign. To get this deal through the DP not by seeing on this one. Where does that take today? Then. Yeah. So today, she needs to decide the decide whether to bring meaningful number three whether they think they can get that round the speaker of the house rules. So that Friday, of course, tomorrow if e- deadline within allowed to get through to unlock today to the twenty second of may. But the UP are holding out. They put out a statement yesterday saying they would not support deal. Jacob rees-mogg influential figure if the wrong to the Tory coffee has said that he will only Br he will only support Theresa May's deal. If it has the backing, she did get them all the winds though. She got Boris Johnson and end up through all the figures on the tour. He right. They have according to people from I decided that they will support deal. Remember, if she fails to get the whole deal this week in April. The twelfth is the decisions as you have to decide by April the twelfth whether the crash out with no deal or whether to opt for a long delay and be involved in EU elections. But she's always said she wouldn't do. I guess that matters if she's still bad by August rat. What if she does Depa? What will that mean for the brakes at outcome? Yes. We yesterday. She pledged in front of the benches the nineteen twenty two. Tennessee that you would step down if they deal, so they see the extremes. We've got face. She is promising her own policy that she will leave her position if they support in getting through parliament by the end of this week. And so he does look if she will go probably sometime in the summer, certainly before the conservative party conference in the autumn. She said yesterday, and what was the parent an emotional address to have policy that she wants to deliver Brexit SEC historic juicy for the country to deliver on Brexit. This is really to increase the portfolio deal already seemed like I love that. We could be looking at minute number three days to say whether meaningful bite number four to come back. The speaker of the house, it's predeceased. That's not something. He wants to say, yes, it could be entering into the unknown seventy coffee leadership context. Thanks very much.

"I serve as America's secretary of state. Mike gallagher. I have a column in the Washington Post congressman that just went onto the homepage defying about what defines a presidency and of the three things I think defined the Nixon presidency the intervention in the arm. Kippur war is one of those three the other two being the opening to China and the establishment environmental regime of pragmatic realism at the sequel that different stuff, and but it it matters mostly when history compresses. Presidency into a few paragraphs. What is the biggest mountain valleys matter? I don't think the Muller report is much of a valley. But I think the support of Israel is a big mountain for Donald Trump. What do you think? Completely agree. And speaking of Nixon, congratulations, you on your appointments that have been making foundation. I can't think of anyone else better suited to that task. Thank you really look forward to joining you there. It's one of the few presidential libraries. I have visited excellent speech by Mike Pompeo further evidence that whoever holds the Wednesday Hewitt's slot. Must be a brilliant. Reminds us from pale was just an interloper. He was he is excited. Tommy preceded Mike Gallagher, and that goes back to David Dreier the memory John Campbell had for years. But the the member of the moment, the patriot mobile member of the moment, I always want people can talk about the world. Well, speaking of which Senator Cruz, and I actually introduced a Bill last month recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan, which is why I was very excited that the president made this decision this weekend. And really it's just a decision by President Trump to knowledge the reality on the ground since nineteen one Israeli law jurisdiction and administration has extended to the Golan Heights and Israeli control over this territory provides our ally with defensible borders, and it serves the key buffer with the cast next door in Syria. And so I think we have to be clear for those who would criticize this decision that there were only two options either Israel controls Golan or eleven says, Bella and the Assad regime will control a lot and in the aftermath of a brutal civil war in which Charlotte outside used chemical weapons against his own people and flooded his country with Irani, and align terrorist groups giving highground back to side does not make sense. I'd love to hear anyone make a positive case for why we should reward Assads behavior, and Lebanese says olive, I siding with them. Against israel. There is not an critics of this decision site UN resolution sector upon pay on a briefing yesterday said a UN resolution is not a suicide pact. And I've been to go on now. I haven't we didn't get to do the tour with the national security adviser because of weather, but I was there three years ago. I think Prager and Gallagher taking a bunch of listeners back there this year. And anyone who sees it just knows it, and you know, even marine Intel officer is gonna know you cannot give up that much high ground and protect your country completely. In addition to the UN thing, which we can get into the other pushback, I've heard that there's some sort of equivalency between this and Putin and Ukraine to be absolutely clear. This is a false acquitted on sale Vladimir Putin invaded and occupied Crimea, which because you're a threat to Russian security Israel contrast came into possession of the Golan Heights at the tail under the six day war in which the airball ganged up on our ally in an effort to eliminate it from the face of the earth. So you simply just cannot compare territory acquired as part of a defensive war to protect Israeli borders. With Putin's landgrab against his peaceful neighbor now, congressman Gallagher. I want to switch over if I can to Brexit. I did the same thing with Admiral Stavridis earlier, it appears that the hard line leave are realizing a half loaf is better than no loaf and both Boris Johnson. Jacob rees-mogg had both endorsed that it appears I've indicative votes today. They wanted to Kate anything except mass confusion. It's going to be made deal or not leaving. What what do you think is going to happen? And if they take me out the United States do immediately. I confess a bit of hesitancy to predict because it's almost like the breathless reporting we had about each week. We were going to get the Muller. It seems each week. We're going to get a resolution of Brexit, and it never comes. I maybe I saw the story that REEs Mogg, and some others might support the may option. I still think her deal is unlikely to pass based on some conversations I've had in the last twenty four hours with some MP's and some other people for example from the Henry Jackson society in London, but we could see a scenario in which he offers resignation votes in the nineteen twenty two committee, which is the group of backbench conservative MP's. But we'll say, my guess is that something with the customs union will pass and it's very hard to protect at this point. Okay. Last question Armed Services Committee did not like the navy's proposal that mothball the Truman. I mean. Nobody liked it. Am I right in my assessment? Both rob Wittman the ranking member and former chairman of Seapower and Joe Courtney the current chairman on both pushback strongly. Great line of questioning pointed out, the obvious fact will to really one is that by twenty seven we will only have nine carriers under this plan, which means it will make it difficult but not impossible as the navy acknowledge the two carriers out there in search three in the event of a crisis. That's simply unacceptable, and then she'll Courtney in his line of questioning also got essential point. Which is that we've already got about five hundred million sunk costs for the nuclear reactors as part of the extension of the chairman, which you don't actually save that money simultaneously by undoing the extension because I think you say that about seventeen million this year alone, you say the more over the lifespan of this. But one we're reducing our carrier presence in two were not actually saving a lot of money in the process to simply does not make that much that it doesn't make a liquor said, I didn't know about the sunk cost. Now, I know that there have sunk costs don't get trapped by them. But when they're that large, but the asset is real. I mean sunk costs is usually theory applied to bat assets. The truman's. A good asset. Well, absolutely and Shanahan made this point that well, you know, we still have some time where we could reverse this decision one that signals an enormous amount of uncertainty from the highest levels of the Pentagon and second the defense industrial base doesn't work like that. You can't simply turn honest, which return office, which at a moment's notice. People respond and taking the lead time you have to make investments in the shipyard. Personnel investments, you lose a lot of expertise in many cases. The defense industrial base is fragile in many cases.

"Live from Dubai listening today. Break Europe live on London D A B digital radio. Let's go straight into the pulse of global markets because we had a US session overnight that was slightly higher. Tech shares on the pressure energy stocks helping drive those gains. And so that cautious optimism is strictly through the Asian equity session. We have an Asia Pacific index that at the moment is just a little bit lower. It's mix pictures you've got a little bit of upside in some of the markets like China, but then the downside of some of the emerging markets in Asia, specifically some of the highlights elsewhere in the FX space. We have a Bloomberg dollar index that carving up a little bit of green shoots here. We're up about a tenth of one percent. Some of the other key pairs, your dollar largely unchanged. One twelve sixty three Dalian limit lower tenths of one percent. Cable ahead of another important vote lower fifth of one percents in commodities. We have. Crude oil at sixty eight dollars and eleven cents a barrel a fifth of one percent stronger. More comments out from the Russian energy minister underscoring the commitment to the current agreement around OPEC, plus that's helping out a little bit. And then you've got gold is bit up. Offensive one percent. That's a short of one thousand three hundred twenty dollars an ounce. You look at the US ten year yields they are currently still holding above two point four one as we speak. We were a two point four five in the overnight session in the United States. Goldman Sachs says joining some of the other voices and saying you know, what let's downplays some of this talk around concerns about inverted yield curve. There's no reason to freak out, basically US and European equity futures are both called clearly higher. All right. So that's the market check right there. Let's get into some of the top stories. We're following for you starting off with the leading. Tony Brexit tear cop rees-mogg, he's hinted that he could now be prepared toback Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal agreement. He says the choice. Between the prime minister's deal or not leaving the EU Lord Haig. Former conservative leader also says it's better than alternatives as NPR's prepared to vote on a series of other options. Tori, MP Crispin blunt thinks they're right. However, what ought to flow from the two thousand sixteen referendum is Brexit, and what should flow from that binary choice between leave or stay should then be voluntary choice between leading with the agreement of the prime minister negotiated all leaving with no green. The comments will begin voting alternatives today in a process likely to continue into next week. Moving onto the pulse. Elsewhere in Singapore. David Finnity now for the markets live teams be kind enough to find some time in the schedule. David. Let's let's talk about sterling investors. They should be surprised really if they don't see any clarity on its path near term after today's indicative vote. I mean, we haven't had any clarity in very longtime. Yeah. Now, you see cable studying generally, but say cable, which is obviously studying dollar is in a very tight range lately. And because there's no idea which way it's going to go with tonight's this morning to stay that way. I mean, if we just take the example of trees of may who she's got well, okay. That could be a long kick down the road. So it gets the ER g group on board to support her deal. But at the same time people who was appointed deal because they didn't want a no deal. Now, my guy. Well, hold it other options on the table scenario. Matures may we won't support your deal? So while she may gain support you may lose support. So it's really any. Can happen. And can that's always forget this suppression. Her maybe to step down if anything is going to be done. So lots of variables left, and that she twist on the twists disturbing is still be murky tomorrow morning when we all wake up, Wichita elections. We got all of by next week. Maybe bit more. We've got the central Bank in New Zealand the Reserve Bank. Can they surprised markets and he joined the toughish crowd around the world and increasingly dovish crowd the Kiwi dollar under pressure. What are you hearing from some of the traders? Yeah, they definitely caught everyone by surprise. Its last meeting just last month. They actually expected to come out a bit more toughish, and they came out Basie bit more hawkish and expected we've been very neutral indeed infected that ferry meeting. They said, hey, we're most visit when tissue leaving rights on hold through twenty twenty seven five weeks later with the data not being really that bad. They came up definitely Davidge tilt indicating. A k we are looking to cut rates potentially sued and the markets very quickly to replace that the price of a rate cut down gun to August was about thirty six percent market. Now the monk Saudi priced in by August. You can tell right car. So market was definitely caught by surprise by this and essentially going forwards because then the markets can be like how do they interpret Vinci's forward Kelly's 'cause that's twice in a row now where they sold in the market completing the long way, David thank you very much for that insight. That's David Finnegan reminded that for real time market commentary and analysis. Check out. The markets live blog. That's mlive on your Bloomberg terminal. We have some breaking lines the Bloomberg from sports direct. They are considering an offer of five Pence per share for Devon Adams. So an offer from sports director Ford them in sports direct, retail all kinds of apparatus products today. This stock has had a strong rally. We're looking at gains about twenty point one percent. We'll see how that evolves into today's trading day. But let's get back to some of the other stories that we're following for. You mean staying with the central Bank seem really President Trump's pick for an open for the reserve seat says the FOMC should cut rates immediately by half a percentage point. Stephen Moore told the basically he told the New York Times fed was wrong to raise rates in September. And December he insisted that if he is confirmed to the fed board. He will not be a tough, and he would not be psycho fan for president. All right and going to some of the other pockets that we have here of developments in U S, China trade talks China Chinese vice premier Leo he will lead a delegation to Washington for talks starting on April third the White House. The news comes as the US. Trade Representative Robert lighthizer anti Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin fly to Beijing tomorrow for talks, according to the US chamber of commerce trade talks are now in the end game with the head of international affairs. Myron brilliant, saying the next two weeks will be crucial. Let's put the uncertainty to rest by having a good deal. That's comprehensive sustaining enduring. That's the goal. That's a goal for both China and the United States, I'm optimistic the right energy tone is being set by the two governments. Now, it's about getting it done, and they're still outstanding issues. But I think they're getting closer. And I think the next two weeks are going to be critical that was my billion ten of international affairs at the US chamber of commerce moving outside of the corporate news. We've got forty skew medals. They're expecting the US China's strike a trade deal soon. Chairman, Andrew Forrest told Bloomberg that people who doubt China's growth story only needs to look at its iron ore tonight for signs of breaking AAC breakneck expansion, think of volume metric gripe all of a sudden the Fiscales come off the is you have an opinion on my goodness. This place is growing at about the size of the Australian economy each year, it's catching up fast to the US economy that was the fourth q medals founder and chairman Andrew Forrest speaking exclusively to Bloomberg at the forum in China. And in corporate news apple has done that import ban in its fight with Qualcomm, but may face another this as the US trade agency has rejected a Payton infringement claim filed by over a battery saving feature. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman says it's good news for apple apple really dodged the bullet here on this. They avoided a possible import ban would have affected the seven and seven plus eight. Plus, so that's out of the question for now. But hours earlier separate IDC judge said apple infringed on a different Qualcomm painted. This case also is subject to review by the International Trade Commission. And China is now suspending the airworthiness certificate for the Boeing seven three seven max jets more from Bloomberg's Denise pelligrini officials say they need to review a proposed modification before determining whether the plane is safe to fly after two recent crashes, and that means the max seven thirty seven could be kept out of China's skies, if the thirties Dima fix for software linked to the disasters is inadequate. And the news comes just a day after China awarded a thirty five billion dollar deal to Boeing's rival Airbus. Denise pellegrini. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. All right. They've got some more breaking lines. Hey, the Bloomberg from imperial brands. They came up earlier with guidance in terms of EPS growth within forty eight percent guidance range.

May's Brexit delay and Corbyn's second referendum - Politics Weekly podcast

"Is just twenty nine days until we leave the European Union. Or is it one hundred twenty three days trees may announce this week if a deal is defeated on March the twelfth parliament will be asking MP's wanted to leave with no deal or extend article fifty remains were modified and leave as horrified. The Daily Telegraph declaring that delaying Brexit was a plot to stop it. She also offered some consolation for MP's wanting to avoid no deal telling them the United Kingdom will only leave without a dealer March twenty ninth if there's explicit consent in this house, but maize proposed extensions just for three months, and it's unclear whether she would vote against an audio Brexit itself. So has anything really changed what I'm joined to discuss all this by Rafael bat and politics and be from the guardian and the former advisor to may will Tana he was now the director of the think tank onward, so we leaving on the twenty ninth. No. I think not I think the fact that I've one dirty voted to make an extension possible means everybody wherever they stand apart from the handful of lunatics who didn't vote for it only twenty is it turned out think that if we get a Brexit. We're still going to need more technical time. And then there are others who think if we can push it out of it further, we get closer perhaps to a referendum being the only thing left standing with parliament, Kamel degree a deal. That's what we'll have to have. So one way or another. It seems to be most likely could be sure could belong the will allow extension. What can we do in that in that time that we haven't been able to do the posterior will? I mean, there are a number of factors involved in this crucial. One is the the twenty seven also really really don't want no deal scenario. I mean in this country there were handful of people who think that's a great idea. But really, the the overwhelming majority view rational human beings is it would just be a mess and a problem for all. Sides worse for the UK, but still very bad of the twenty seven. So if you could avoid that happening the no deal scenario happening on the twenty ninth of March. Then yes, there is oversee will at the European Council level to do it of the concerns are. And this is particularly I think concern on the French side that all your doing is just playing this Theresa May game of desperately busking kicking the can down the road as you say hoping that something different will happen. Whereas actually that the central parameters of negotiation, the the arithmetic and in Westminster, the all the red lines Theresa May says up in for the Goshi Asian don't change, and therefore nothing changes. So really, what would be the points. And then there is another very important practical consideration, which is European parliamentary elections do you at the end of may and. Legally and technically and on principle. It becomes enormously. Awkward to imagine the UK either going through that process without having election because notionally relieving leaving the EU, but we would still be members or having that election, which then becomes his horrible wit proxy vote about Brexit, or it becomes a day factor referendum or just becomes gold knows what electing MEP's who then might notionally than sort evaporates after Brexit, actually happens. So does the long onto the short answer is you could get an extension, but it would you'd have to they would be conditions. It's hot you'd have to be very clear about what you're using it to do. Well, the provinces said over and over and over again that we are leaving on the twenty ninth month. And I actually remember when she delayed the vote just in December. We said it will. Does this mean probably that we're heading for an extension and people were so adamant that it didn't mean that. So what why she done it is it is it. A cabinet ministers is independent griebel's. The what's the rationale? Well, I think we need to be clear that the prime minister hasn't has suggested that we all definitely going to have an extension. She has merely said that parliament will have a choicest whether or not to have a nodule Brexit or not if they if they votes not have no diverted then to vote for a short extension. So she's essentially putting the choice in the hot enhancer parliamentarians. And I think that's that's crucial. We've heard over the last three or four six months that actually put him in wants to take control of this process. It will have an opportunity to do. So, but within that is a clear decision between whether or not you want to deliver on the referendum results or to suffer the consequences of not doing that. And a lot of the MP's. I've spoken to in the Las in Las few days are actually increasing leaning towards the prime minister's deal. Subject potentially some changes around the backstop on the basis that dilution or delay. Brexit is far. Worse than the consequences of voting for her deal. I think essentially the prime minister's trying to show up in the minds of her colleagues, and including some of the labor MP's leave voting seats. We mustn't forget that sixty percents of labor MP's or league voting seats in order to force them to make a decision because ultimately we've been fixing a lot on process. Lost sixty nine months. We haven't been focusing very much on the outcome. We've been trying to seek she needs. She needs sixty two in peace to switch with people Robert Half on. He said they will. But there aren't off lots of heads popping up to say. So where do you think she's got do so far I believe actually behind the scenes, they're aquatic considered number of conserved fan piece who are reconsidering that position and have been somewhat reinsured by some of the noises. That's the prime minister and others have made about progress. Jeffrey courses be making around the back to speak up after a once they've decided to be loyal. Why wouldn't they be waving flags for it? It's been all the note. Well. Dinovite. Yuba woman MP NPR Boston Skegness one of the most leaf voting seats in the country explicitly single Twitter last night that he would vote for the prime minister's deal over any today. Her Jacob smoke making very clear last night that some of his previous declarations about very hard changed the all out not to be true. Because he said he's still needed a fixed time limit. We'll let the same as abolishing a yesterday. But I think the difference there is that I think that this is not actually the I don't think there's uniform. Opinion across the E R J. There are some people who still really want to see the backstop removed entirely from the withdrawal agreement reopened in that bit those pages torn out, and there are those. You know, Jacob rees-mogg is among them. It's interesting to to think of ministry softer and of the group, but who said that an appendix with an end date or something that in effect changes.

"This is not a question of people like me lesson. You Don, it is of the government having come up with a deal that does not only manifesto twenty seventeen all the referendum was twenty sixty. That's what he's saying. Very bluntly, we promised you this in we promised your referendum first election that David Cameron won overwhelmingly David Cameron delivered the referendum. Great Britain voted by four percent. It wasn't close to get out of the European Union binding parliament to get out of the European Union. Then Theresa May ran. A battle action, but she's still one in coalition with the DP the party of Northern Ireland. They have the majority and they've been negotiating with the EU EU is not negotiating in good faith. The EU is trying to punish Great Britain and trying to keep them captive forever without even say in their captivity. And what Jacob rees-mogg set is the people who are letting you down to the people who are not driving for hard Brexit. If the union will not negotiate. And it seems very clear to me that what Theresa May is trying to do is get the e you to blink Donald tusk yorker, all those crazy people running that vast bureaucracy of unelected tyrants that they ought to be pushed out and by tyrant. I don't mean the sort to kill people. I just mean the sort that put people under a cement block of regulatory control. They are actually running Great Britain, not the United Kingdom running Great Britain and Great Britain wants to run Great Britain. That's why they were Great Britain and want to become again, Great Britain and become what check embraced mog might have said this or may have been Liam Fox or it might have been. Boris johnson. The Singapore of the Atlantic trading free market paradise. And boy would it boom. Even with the cost of dislocation of transition from the EU, boy, it now want to go to Mike Pence talking with Andrea Mitchell yesterday because it was it was important what he said. And I wanna make sure that you hear him. First of all, the vice president told Andrea Mitchell that the president was not happy with the compromise. Cut number five. This conference is a direct result of the. The president had spoken several times. Trip. I know the president is still evaluating the bills at the conference committee has produced. I think he's been very clear. You're not happy with it. Seem less than one point four billion dollars in border wall funding, I know is a disappointment to the president. But as he's considering the Bill is twenty three billion dollars in border security funding, including many of the priorities that we requested to address what is a real crisis on our southern border. And I know the president is considering that as well as other authority. He has. As as president of the United States to address what is a very real humanitarian security crisis. So I think the president's evaluating what's in the Bill. He's also evaluating the authority that he has. And I know he'll be making a decision for the deadline is frightening. Barricades. With regard to the border security deal any vice I have the president share with the president. But as I said before I know he's carefully examining the legislation and also examining the authority that he has to deal with what is a very real prices on our southern border..

"Three minutes after the hour on his you attack. You on this Friday looking forward to a great weekend. I am Dr Arnn coming up for the hillsdale dialogue, and we will spend a lot of that on the national declaration of emergency. The president proposes to you to build his barrier as well as the power of impeachment because we continue to the constitution. I want to go across the pond for a second to our wonderful ally. With him we have the special relationship the United Kingdom struggling as it is under the leadership of Theresa May to come to a conclusion about how to get out of the European Union, which is octopus like got it in its tentacles and doesn't want to let it go and wants to punish it. If it does go, and it looks more and more to me like a hard Brexit. It's going to be necessary. And last night how they celebrate Valentine's Day in the United Kingdom. Jacob rees-mogg. Who is a member of parliament for ten years? Not a member of the government, not a frontbencher, but a backbencher. In research group, and a brilliant man eaten. Trinity college. Oxford president Oxford University conservative association went into the hedge fund business made a gazillion dollars, and then went into politics, and he's wonderfully. Witty smart informed in well read, and he is leading the charge to just get out. Any leads very very influential. Among those who understand the European Union is a giant swamp that sucking the lifeblood out of the marrow of Great Britain. And so Jacob rees-mogg went on a talking head show last night on Valentine's Day and made this pitch. Now, we don't have the video because it doesn't transfer easily from the United Kingdom, but we do have the audio and you can go look at him. He's sort of the prototypical bread. But he sounds that way. But listen to what he says about keeping promises. Leave the European Union. We would leave a single lock it. We would leave the customs union that is what I'm trying to control. We do not have here. The full text of the with deliveryman dole nearly six hundred pages. Has it taken this time? Absolutely key pages of it, which I read out because I probably isn't time. But that explains why this is failing to deliver on the vote of twenty sixteen people to leave. They didn't vote for deal. This deal leaves us potentially tied into a customs union indefinitely subject to the European Court of Justice in certain areas, potentially indefinitely and splits up the United Kingdom between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This is not a question of people like me letting you down it is of the government having come up with a deal that does not only manifesto twenty seventeen all the referendums, plenty sixty. That's what he's saying. Very bluntly, we promised you this in we promised your referendum first election that David Cameron one overwhelmingly David Cameron delivered the referendum. Great Britain voted by four percent. It wasn't close to get out of the European Union binding parliament to get out of the European Union. Then Theresa May ran. In a battle election, but she still one in coalition with the DUP the party of Northern Ireland. They have the majority and they've been negotiating with the EU EU is not negotiating good fit. The EU is trying to punish Great Britain and trying to keep them captive forever without even say in their captivity. And what Jacob rees-mogg said is the people who are letting you down to the people who are not driving for heartbreaker if the union will not negotiate. And it seems very clear to me that what Theresa May is trying to do is get the EU to blink Donald tusk yorker, all those crazy people running that bureaucracy of unelected tyrants that they ought to be pushed out and by tyrant. I don't mean to kill people. I just that put people under a cement block of regulatory control. They are actually running Great Britain, not the United Kingdom running Great Britain and Great Britain wants to run Great Britain. That's why they were Great Britain and want to become a Great Britain and become what Jacob rees-mogg might have said. This may have been Liam Fox or it might have been. Boris Johnson the Singapore of the Atlantic trading free-market paradise. And boy would it boom. Even with the cost of dislocation of transition from the EU boy bone not want to go to Mike Pence document Andrea Mitchell yesterday because it was it was important what he said. And I wanted to make sure that you hear him first of all the vice president told Andrea Mitchell that the president was not happy with the compromise. Cut number five. This conference is a direct result of the. The president and spoken.

"Because generally legislation is put forward by the government debated in both houses of parliament and then sent off to the palace for the queen's her signature on it in. This instance, the government will not be proposing this legislation and one it that if evac Cooper's amendment gets a majority in the Commons than her Bill to extend article fifty would also get a majority, and I heard some interesting rooms at the top from Downing Street this week saying, well, if the Commons passes this Bill, I'm the house of lowest passes, it the Queen would really have no choice, but to sign it. And it does pose constitutional question of is the Queen going against her own government or she going against the house of Commons. And either way it's a nightmare for the palace. I think it was very striking on Friday that we heard the Queen during one of her very rare targeted political interventions. Say please, let common sense, prevail. James? The other question is that if the Cooper amendment passes, and it changes the terrain in such a fundamental way. What happens to the Prime Minister Theresa May's strategic blackmail of the house of Commons. I the fact that she's been saying for weeks. Now my way or the highway. I my deal is the only option to avoid a no deal does delaying the prospect of leaving fatally undermine this sort of blackmail that she's been trying to exert over MP's or not just postpone the crisis. It's an interesting question. The Cooper amendment is having a lot of affect first of all on a lot of people Westminster. Okay. First of all, it's creating a huge division inside the cabinet because as you can see amber rod has come out. And is basically saying we need to have a free vote on this Cooper amendment because she is very clear that she doesn't want to know deal to happen. And so she is this weekend leaving open whether. She might resign. If may continues with the current position, which is whipped vote against the Cooper amendment. So that's a problem. Then you've got a second thing that's happening, which is the European research group the people around Jacob rees-mogg, a beginning to say hang on a take. If we don't vote for the may deal when it comes back and she loses on the Cooper amendment comes in. We could be in a situation where Brexit is delayed for at least another nine months. Possibly with lots of other artists coming in including possibly a second referendum says, suddenly you've got the effect that they are beginning to have this great rethink after the defeat on January the fifteenth about whether they might vote for the deal. Second time round off the roll. And then this third the effect on MRs may herself. You're right that it does change things for her in a way, that's not really very helpful because the Europeans are under pressure to try and give her a bit more on the backstop cycle. Irish back stuff. I'm not sure they're going to give a very much, but because the Europeans are looking at the Westminster saga and saying, well, if we don't give a very much. Going gonna lose that vote. And then we'll get into an extension extensive article fifty which might see the British gang down the second referendum route. So I thought very helpful her in that regard. It is however helpful in the sense that more than anything else at Westminster..

"I commend him for his leadership on this issue for speaking out, clearly as he pointed out on Twitter, you know, you can expect Madero to react like taking drastic steps like cutting off the internet. He has bipartisan legislation to offer protected status to Venezuelan fleeing the conditions in their country at a time when we're having a debate about immigration and the president's proposal does include some changes to the TPS program their opportunities when we're dealing with adversaries like Venezuela. Like China where we can use the TPS program to actually score geostrategic win and a human rights win. And then he also has a bipartisan Bill with Menendez. We've passed version of the house last year that would address this issue. It's a humanitarian crisis. I want people to understand Venezuela is a sinkhole of poverty and misery that is getting deeper, and there is a reason to intervene as there was in Panama, although it would be better if our friends in Colombia and Brazil did so let me turn to Europe. Again. I'll come to the Middle Eastern the second because well, let's go there. I Israel is pounding Iranian forces in Syria. And I don't mean a strike here in a strike there. It's scores and waves of strikes in Syria. Can't do anything about it. What's your reaction to this, Mike Gallagher? Well, I think as we struggled to find a good option going forward in Syria. And I think because you bomb administration ignored this for pretty much since the beginning of the revolution. You have to concede that our options have gotten worse and worse. The only way I think constructively clearance strategy is one that begins with aggressively backing Israeli moves in Syria. And we're at a time in the Middle East where Israel's interests tend to align with those of our SUNY Arab allies as well. And the only way we can bring some semblance of stability to that country is by working by with and through our allies. It's why I passed a Bill last congress and the president signed. In fact, just got the ten from President Trump himself that he signed this Bill to crack down on his bowlers use of human shields because they've built basically the largest military base in the world in all of Lebanon, key parts of southern Syria and they've stashed somewhere between two hundred and fifty thousand. Thousand three hundred thousand is dance rockets eighty percent of which are under heavily populated civilian areas. And this is a deliberate in barbaric strategy to force Israel to respond in a way that incurs enormous civilian casualties. And I worry that we have all the ingredients where this localized conflict could spiral out of control become a great power conflict. It's also why I have been forcefully making the case to the president himself not to precipitously withdraw from Syria. I went to the White House with a group of my colleague last week organized by Liz Cheney we've made the case with president directly is I believe we are on the right path right now, I believe we found a useful middle ground and a model for working with them to our allies at a low cost in order to influence outcomes on the ground right now. But it's also, and there's the final thing I'd say you why to get back to Israel. We do need as Senator Cruz and Senator Rubio has suggested as I've been saying since two thousand fifteen we need to recognize Israel. Sovereignty over the Golan Heights. And indeed in so doing their ability to annex, West Bank territory, if in fact, it becomes impossible to deal with the Palestinian Authority. I got one minute left, Mike Gallagher. And I want to ask the congressman from Wisconsin on the Senator on the House Armed Services committee about Brexit today. Liam Fox, Dr Liam Fox said there is no chance that a vote will go forward on a no deal Brexit blocking it. That's good news. Jacob rees-mogg has said outbreaks of realism all around make a Brexit deal. Feasible. What do you think's gonna happen there? You get one minute. But what this is a big deal for the world that the UK breakaway because it's they're a sovereign nation. I don't wanna be in it. They voted not to be in it. They gotta get out of it. But they were some round heels in the in the Tory party. Prime minister maze in no man's land. She lost four thirty two to two and is trying to sort of thread, the needle I do tend to.

"I don't believe that the military is hold on power is challenge in any way, shape or form by these protests, which which is evidenced by the fact that they simply have delayed the election by yet another month. And also if you look at the violence over time in the south, this is an insurgency that we simply don't pay attention to outside of Thailand. We we have had spikes in violence over the year over the last year in two thousand eighteen and so far this spike in violence is not unique in anyway, what's interesting is now being covered, and it's not being picked up. What does that do is one of the things you he spotted smoke published by reporting on it? You can make it a bit. Well. Yeah. I think it might be the case that people begin to make this connection between the southern insurgency and national politics. Of course, this was you know, when toxin Chinnawat the deposed, the prime minister first came to power. There was a drug war a massive drug war in the south, and which many people believe sparked the insurgents to begin with. And that was a direct connection between regional and national politics in this case. However, I think that the the real opposition to the military regime is coming from the north rather than the south, and the it's more likely that the insurgents are responding to this effort by the time to restart the peace process than anything in terms of national politics.

"What will have happened by then on lots twenty-ninth where are we going to be? Well, I'm going to somewhat weasel out of that question. I will answer it in a moment. You know, let's understand that for two and a half years. This political system has been entirely dysfunctional has been incapable of agreeing on just about anything. And unless they agree on something unless there's a majority of votes in the parliament, then the default is Britain crashes out of the European Union. So you can certainly paint. You can certainly tell a story that says that is increasingly likely. However, I'm with Stephen in that I think that you know, Theresa May's now playing this elaborate game it's not so elaborate, it's a pretty transparent game. She's trying to scare us into believing that, you know, it's a binary choice between this deal that everyone hates or crashing out in the hopes that the closer we get to the cliff. The more people will be likely to take refuge in this deal that no one likes. But of course, it's entirely possible that if she herself believes that we could really go over the cliff. She'll say, you know, I don't really want my legacy to be the prime minister who said Brexit. Means Brexit, and we still don't really know what Brexit is. And have the legacy be. I couldn't deliver a deal and we crashed out moreover, a crash out deal or crash out. Plus, plus as I like to call. Would amount to a victory for the people in her party. Like Jacob rees-mogg who tried to essentially politically assassinate her unsuccessfully with the motion of no-confidence. So if she ultimately has to choose between going over the cliff or reluctantly assenting to some kind of second referendum scenario. I I would say with an awful lot of reluctance to be pinned down that. That's what she'll do. So to answer your question. I think by March the twenty ninth we'll be some kind of extension and that extension will only be granted by the Europeans. If there's a credible path through second referendum, and I think that's where we'll be headed. And Stephen just quickly. I'm afraid I'm going to agree. I think that's I I I really do think that's where it's going to be because I can't see this vote being pasta night. The idea of no deal at all. Just crushing out is absurd around the the analogy, also, which I think is very very very long is this is a divorce and the other side of the the the policy in this DeVos idea opinion, doesn't want us to leave. So any signal that Britain gives that actually we might change our minds they will be sympathetic, and they will be prepared to wait a bit longer for a decision on that. Okay. Well, let's move along. Now and take a look at Germany for a few decades now and for the last few years in particular, Germany has operated as Europe's reassure in chief the one country that can be depended on not company with it senses stage and economic meltdown and also fourth its latest economic data. It should be knowledged is very far from reason to panic. But a growth rate of one point five percent these lowest right, Germany has recorded full five or six years. Is disagreeable news to a willed wary of the prospect of more general downtown pita festival. One point five percent. Is it still more than my current account is paying me is is it really so bad. It's not good. And it certainly is slow down banks now that I think of it out on your banking situation. Especially if you're in sterling, which is currency seems poised to fall some more I mean in all seriousness. This is an indication of slowdown in the global economy. I mean, Germany is a major exporter Germany is suffering in part because of some domestic stuff involved in car sales, but largely fears about China's slowdown which is cooling investment fears about the effect of the tariffs in Donald Trump's global trade war. And so it's not that one and a half percent growth is a screaming emergency. But it is very much an indicator that that enhances the sense that the global economy. Is slowing and let's face it. If this is as good as this global economic expansion is going to get before the inevitable pause or or even downturn..

"Who really do want to get rid of the European Union wall. Also placating the people who pay attention to you know, everyday things like economics who understand that. There's no form of Brexit that makes Britain richer, and in fact, every conceivable form of Brexit makes Britain poorer to some degree or another. So she's trying to act like, yes, we're really doing this. We're really leaving while doing as little as possible that's resulted in this deal that has. A little to hate for everyone. And now she's gonna have to pick in some fashion. I mean, assuming she survives which is not clear if she loses by a big enough margin. It's conceivable that you'll see her cabinet abandon her. We know that the labor party is going to deliver a a motion of no confidence in the government that will probably fail unless the the D UP members of parliament who've been propping up progovernment bolt which seems unlikely so at that point show either have to say, okay, given the choice between a no deal Brexit or an even softer Brexit. I'm prepared to just go over the cliff and entertain that havoc or she could turn toward the center as it were and try to come up with a softer form of Brexit, and maybe peel off some labor support, Stephen they're all those observe is. They may be people who've just been driven insane by observing this process who do claim to receive some strategic. Gic behind Theresa May still doing at this point the only DEA that she's engaged in a game of chicken with the youth that she's she's taking this as far as she can hoping that they will blink and offer better terms. Is there anything possibly to that? Do you think because the thing that does get forgotten? I think, you know, quite reasonably as Britain becomes obsessed with the effect that it will have on Britain is that it's not going to be good for the a you spent some countries in particular most obesity, France and the Republic of Ireland. It's not going to be good for them. But I I can't see that. She's being that coming. I've almost got the situation. I felt sorry for her actually because it was a predescessor who got us in this mess in the first place by holding this referendum and making it fifty fifty percent. Plus one absolutely know, this is what it could've been could've been advisory. They're all sorts of ways they could've done it simply because David Cameron member him. He was probably the worst prime minister we've ever had. He was the one who said that he he. He basic- he didn't say this because he just wanted to sort out the problems in his own party in the conservative party.

Ooh, better support something because otherwise we might not leave for those who want to leave my own. This is very difficult. Not to be subjective about this song to put my cards on the table.

Welcome to hard talk on the BBC World Service with me, Steven Saka Britain is facing up to its moment of truth on bricks it and just a few days, the UK parliament will decide whether to accept or reject. The departure terms agreed by British Prime Minister, Theresa may and the leaders of the EU twenty seven, but this is a moment of truth for all of Europe to if as seems likely the deal is rejected Britain will be plunged into political crisis. But the repercussions will be enormous and potentially grave for the EU as a whole my guest knows that better than most to new to hook nose sits on the Brexit steering group in the European parliament. She's a former polish EU Commissioner, and she knows the importance of ensuring Britain doesn't exit the union without meeting its financial obligations. A host of problems are not hard to see there's the particular vulnerability of the Irish economy and. The serious implications for cross channel trade and many of the biggest exporters. Understandably. Much of the focus right now is on Britain's political crisis. But is the EU ready for the chaos that might unfold while the neuter who joins me now on the line from Brussels. Welcome to hard talk. Welcome to you as well. I talked about the fateful decision. Facing the British parliament, how closely are you and others at the heart of power in Brussels. Watching the events unfold in the UK right now, we have been I think watching I can say safely. The what's going on in UK from the very beginning of this. First of all of this announcement back many years ago of the future referendum, then also they deal with Mr Cameron in February two thousand sixteen and then of course, the referendum which was said big bad surprise to me personally. And then of course, the notification, and then we organize also ourselves in the parliament in such a way that we could not only follow but also contributes to the negotiations. We have been also briefed the basically weekly by Michelle Baena, the chief U negative or on the progress in the negotiations Sunday challenges in the negotiations just a few days ago. Theresa May and the EU twenty-seven leaders agreed on the withdrawal agreement treaty. It's going to be and they also agreed agreed on a framework for the future relationship between the EU twenty seven and Briton after that deal was done. John young. The president of the commission said this is the best deal possible. In fact, this is the only deal possible where not to take him entirely seriously, all we I think one should take it seriously because after all the negotiations actually reached an agreement and if you look at. At our watches. If you look at them, we can see that the time is really disappearing got very very quickly. And we have very limited time now to finalize the whole process, and you can see on the basis of what is going on now in in UK that it is at the political element. The political the discussion the approval or rejection of the and also on our side, we need to go through the procedure which requires also some months, so we are actually in a moment where we cannot waste more time. And we cannot you mentioned that they can make something called going back to the table entry negotiate anything. I don't think this that Mr. younger has exaggerated. I think there is nothing hidden as a as a plan b here even the sensitivity of the time. And as you say, the talk is ticking and everything now needs to happen very quickly. How wise do you think it was for Emmanuel Macron, a French president right after the signing of the deal at leadership level? Why? Was it for him to come out until Europe's press that in his view, France and the EU now had a major lever which they could use over Britain. He described the backstop arrangement by which the British will stay in a customs union. If there is no future agreement on a trade relationship by December twenty twenty he described that backstop, arrangement indefinite arrangement as a tool and a lever. Which would ensure that FRANZ got what it wanted on fisheries, for example, that was very damaging wasn't it? When you think back the last two years, and if you remember what politicians set for the home purpose of coping quo talking to the public at at home that a lot of unnecessary things have been said, and I think this language of of using every opportunity to speak to our own electric. Our only public. I think sometimes also damaging because today when you speak. Here's something immediately on the other continent. They also know the same thing in the same moment. So yes, I think certain things are definitely an unnecessary. And especially that I think there is no we have been avoiding up to now this trade of approach, and we have never linked anything to to to the other thing. So I don't think this is one of the negotiations that have been so far maintained and I trust it will be awesome maintained in the future. Well, I guess forgive me for interrupting, but I guess what I'm getting to is the point that many people in Britain who support what is called a hard Brexit, and I could think of people like Boris Johnson. The former UK foreign secretary whom you know, well, Jacob rees-mogg and others. They described the deal that has been done by Theresa May as a form of capitulation a form of surrender. They use this word vacillated to indicate that the EU will retain power and control over many aspects of Britain's economy and Britain's life with Britain having no say in the future at the EU table, can you as a poll, and of course, the polls have their own skepticism about elements of the European Union. Can you understand that concern that there is in Britain today? You know, we have been responding. I also personality have invested a lot of my time in the whole process to make this really as friendly as possible process of of separation. Of two sides that have had good times in the past. And that would like to have also deep close relationship in the future. And I think that we have to maintain this absolutely this spirit. And but also what you could hear an, and I would say maybe in particular from the British politicians, very often the comments which were very far from reality, which have been even knowing the the way the European Union functions and structured there have been a lot of intention, also which I think unnecessary to force the community of it will be four hundred forty probably million inhabitants. Swansea UK to change the rules on which we have built our unity and our functioning single market our customs union. So I guess that the time has come now that the politicians would just really start talking to people seriously about the consequences of no deland about also understanding and explain. To the people the deal that is really on those five hundred eighty five pages. Well, let's strip away any any misinformation. And let's get down to reality day. You will know as well as I do that the mathematics Theresa May at the moment looks terrible. It looks very very difficult to win a majority in the house of Commons for this deal. So I would imagine you would agree that it's incumbent upon the EU side as well as the British side to begin to think about what will happen if the UK parliament rejects the deal down there are various propositions for a renegotiation of the agreement. Are you telling me that it's too late for any renegotiation or is there room for more talk? Well, all I can say is probably the has been sent over the last days on on our side by all the leaders at the European institutions level, but also at national level that we have finalized negotiations, and what we discussed already this question of of the no time to to start from scratch and also
