"Biden has warned that Russia could be weighing a cyberattack against the U.S. Biden pointed to intelligence suggesting that Moscow is exploring options for potential hacks which may be prompted by her frustration over sanctions and the progress of the war in Ukraine Biden is urging businesses to enhance their defenses adding that most of America's critical infrastructure is run by the private sector Investigators are trying to establish what made a Boeing 737 800 NG plane carrying a 132 people suddenly nosedive from 29,000 feet in China's worst aviation accident in more than a decade The China eastern airlines jet went down in a mountainous terrain near the city of wuzhou with all passengers and crew feared dead The company has grounded its fleet of Boeing 737 800 jets while investigators search for the plane's two crash proof recorders And piano ferries is being accused of paying replacement workers less than one quarter of UK's minimum wage or less than two pounds an

it's too late Piano declined to comment on the union's wage allegations Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than a 120 countries I'm Hannah Georges this is Bloomberg Caroline Thank you so much Hannah For today's top stories Now let's return to our coverage of the war in Ukraine and this time focus now on India's relationship with Russia Just yesterday Australia raised the issue of India's lukewarm position on Russia's war in Ukraine and a bilateral meeting India has stood out as a major democracy over its reluctance to sense in Moscow joining us now to discuss this Bloomberg reporter sudhi ranjan So welcome to the program Thanks for being with us So how deep is the Russia India defense relationship Why are the ties so strong and why is the reaction been so lukewarm from India Thank you for having me in the program to begin with I mean it's a historical relationship and the Indian Russian relationship is extremely extremely deep And just to throw in some numbers to give an understanding on that nearly 70% of India's military hardware even today is of Russian origin Or majority of its fighter aircraft aircraft are refreshed origin almost all of its tanks are of Russian origin So India Russia have been friends for a very long time There are deep relations and the defense relation to trip indicates that And one of the reasons is that historically a couple of decades ago it was Russia who was only willing to sort of say you know kind of spare technology equipment within the plus Russian equipment is much cheaper than the western western equipment from the west So broadly these are the reasons which is contributed to a very deep and strong relationship between India and Russia which now India finds a bit difficult Kind of to justify So we're hearing about the international pressure It's marginal at the moment Australia flagging flagging the fact that they see the Indians being able to do more potentially on this What is the domestic pressure Is there any for Modi and his government to change course on this Particularly does have a very strong standing It's seen as a country that is kind of come to India's help always and every time whether it is the United Nations with vetoes or in times of war whether it was the 1971 Bangladesh liberation war or the 2019 99 2000 Kaggle conflict So it's got a lot of goodwill so to say within the country But yes there is with this wanton wanton aggression so to say in Ukraine that's happening There is a growing sense that perhaps Russia has gone too far Okay but there's no sense though that there would be any idea of replacing Russian made equipment for example as Russia now faces isolation effectively from Europe from the U.S. from Japan from all of that kind of allied force together that there's no idea of replacing Russia in India's defense or other mix Well there is a sense From the ground what we get to understand even the military slowly trying to move away from Russian made equipment And this is not new This is say about 7 8 or a decade or a decade old sense that we get Part of the reason being that western equipment doesn't need as much as maintainance as a Russian origin equipments need And therefore adding to the cost But that said you know changing kind of replacing Russian origin equipment is extremely extremely costly And if I were to give you just a perspective while India is total defense budget including expansions and revenue expenditure and all put together is about 70 billion If in India needs fighter planes and just to get 114 fighter planes will be around 20 billion That's the kind of the comparison we are looking at It's going to be extremely extremely difficult for India to kind of drop all its rational equipment and say let's move on to something else because of costs are prohibitive I presumably it's not just about defense at the stance from Delhi in terms of its relationship with Moscow and house reacting to this war How much importance is.

"So including from a Pope Francis, Ahmed Muhammad, Al tayib, Dalai Lama, and the chief rabbi of Israel, including the patriot patriarchal. So that would actually potentially have some sort of positive developments if these leading religions would be able to really bring humanity back to human values upon which negotiations could be built. But dealing with Russia is a negotiator is a non starter. And it risks as spurring Civil War in Ukraine, which would make the Russian Federation extremely happy. A lot of thank you, as always, for your terrific insights. That was the defense analyst. Lada was licky joining us on the briefing. Right now, let's cross over to Monaco's coloro rebello, she's here with the day's other news headlines. Thanks, Thom. In other developments, the U.S. president Joe Biden is holding talks with the Chinese president Xi Jinping. It comes at a time of heightened tensions between Beijing and Washington over the war in Ukraine. Meanwhile, civilians are emerging alive from the ruins of a theater in the southern city of mariupol, its thought that more than 1000 people may have been inside the building when it was bombed by Russian forces. And in other news, Australia has launched legal action against Facebook's parent company meta. Canberra alleges that the tech giant has allowed scam ads to target users with fake celebrity endorsements. Those are the days headlines back to you, Tom. Thank you very much indeed, carlotta. Well, let's get a roundup of some of the days business stories now. You and pots and Bloomberg is standing by you and good afternoon to you. And there are some concerns about trade with the EU, this, of course, follows the UK's P and O ferries dismissing hundreds of its workers. In the UK, P and O ferries abruptly fired all 800 of its sailing staff via a video message yesterday. This has caused a lot of shock in the UK, a lot of condemnation from both houses, both parties in the House of Commons. The company called its staff in or rather they were already on the ships. And they told them via video message that your final day of employment is today. The RMT union says that security guards tried to board the ships with handcuffs to remove a staff. So this has come as a great shock to those staff working for P and O ferries. The RMT says one of the most shameful acts in the history of British industrial relations. Now the company P and O ferries says that it couldn't survive without significant changes after Brexit and COVID battered its finances. The company has lost about a 100 million pounds over the past 12 months, although it should be said that the company's parent company, which is DP world of Dubai based, massive company made a record profit of almost $4 billion in 2021. I think interesting to look at what this could mean for British trade. There are some concerns amongst exporters and wholly is about the impact on the crucial Dover to Calais route. Now, David Kelly is, of course, the shortest route between England and France and accounts for a massive chunk of exports 90% of traffic between Britain and the European Union goes via either via C from Dover to Calais or via the Channel Tunnel rail operator Euro title. So it is absolutely crucial for trade with the European Union piano also a big player moving goods through the North Sea and the Irish sea subpoena that really is an enormous part of trade with the European Union. And of course, the country's supply chains are already being very stretched after the Brexit rebound and with labor shortages. So it's already stretched up part of the industry. So a lot of worries about what it means could mean for that. So I think we need to watch this situation pretty closely. We will, indeed, let's cross the channel again for the next little story on to ask you about. I guess we're not on a P and our ferry, probably have to take the train you would. But there we would find huge French utility player EDF. And it's raising cash. Yeah, electricity to France is kicking off a deeply discounted rights issue. That's issuing shares to investors for more than €3 billion. Now this is a stopgap measure to shore up EDF's finances, EDF has really been battered by a couple of things. A number of nuclear actors have been shut down in France for maintenance and other issues. Of course, France gets the bulk of its electricity from nuclear power, mostly run by EDF. Government policies to cap energy prices might be worth pointing out there is an election going on in France and president Macron decided to ask EDF to slash the price at which sheets or rather not to rise not to increase the price at which it sells power to consumers. And that is a not a multi-billion Euro hole in the finances of EDS. So the short term fix is a right to issue more shares €3 billion, but longer term, president Macron is going to have to more things in place. He's talking about perhaps nationalizing some EDF assets and perhaps building a new nuclear power plant, but that will take a very long time. So he's also interested in how they decoupling of European electricity prices will need to be done to prepare for decades of growth in power demand and also that switch away from fossil fuels. Record power costs have really been of course exacerbated by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and really reshaping policies around Europe, Germany abandoning the Nord stream to gas pipeline and here in the UK next week, the UK is going to launch it. So energy security policy interesting to see what will be part of that talk about increasing exploration in the North Sea for more oil and gas and also for other measures to increase renewables, all these things will take a lot of time. And I think one thing is for sure is that the war in Ukraine is going to radically reshape European energy policy over the coming years. Indeed, thanks as I've ever been with us. That was Bloomberg's you and Potts joining us here on the briefing on Monica 24. What kind of city do you want to live in? Every week on the urbanist, we delve into the biggest questions about urban living and meet the people championing change in our cities..

"On trade P and O expects to suspend operations for up to ten days Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in 120 countries This is Bloomberg at Caroline Thank you so much I guess on that P and O issue usually there has to be a very long process of consultation with employees quite surprising to get rid of a lot of people in a single day without that consultation Absolutely Caroline and I think you're completely right We did see MPs really speak about this yesterday furiously in the House of Commons as it was a shock to everyone especially a shock to employees but they have had to sign nondisclosure forms so we aren't hearing from them as of yet but of course the RMT union is backing them and trying to find a solution and alternative jobs if possible because this is everybody This is people who clean the ships to people who work on the ships It's cruising lots and lots of people And they say they're doing this to slash call center get agency workers in but a lot of people are questioning how is this going to say so much money Yeah and it's a key trade route too Thanks so much Lee and Gary with our top story this morning Let's get to one of our interesting political interviews So the chances spring statement next week the charts and Rishi sunak under a lot of pressure to come up with solutions for soaring energy costs the rising cost of food as the war in Ukraine affects these costs And Bloomberg Westminster UN pots and I was speaking to Jamie Jessica who is the labor mayor for the north of Tyne region We asked about the need to offer real solutions to people facing our energy bills and the cost of living squeeze We're seeing I think with figures quoted around 54% increase in energy prices It's not costing 54% more to pump it out of the ground Someone here is making an awful lot of money And that's before the effects of Ukraine are coming in and that will come in later in the year So there is every home that goes on heated is a risk that people are going to get and it's going to cost us a fortune in the NHS Every child that is hungry because their family is 1700 quid a year down because of energy bills it's going to struggle at school and that's going to affect our productivity for a generation to come Every street that falls into increasing deprivation becomes a breeding ground for crime I don't think we're going to afford not to fix this So in the spring statement I would like the Chancellor to own the national insurance drive The restore the 20 pound a week taken away from 6 million families last October with the universal credit And when you take it on top of this actually an energy security and that means actually stepping up it does we haven't invested in offshore wind We're going to talk about it but the government has not been investing was not changed the local content reel to get a lot more of this built here And we're missing out on this opportunity Britain should be investing in this to get energy and energy security for Britain I think the government is asleep at the wheel on this very day Okay but surely asleep at the wheel because it's a very difficult problem to solve We have just spent billions on trying to solve the pandemic Handing out a furlough scheme at a record pace something never done before Now yet more money it's how that is paid for Well there's a couple of interesting points on that Of course all of the data has gone directly to the Bank of England It's fine the government debt And then when the government pays for coupon interest on it it goes directly back to the treasury So it's a little bit of a circular system there But I would say can we afford not to pay for this Because all of these crises are storing of more costs for the future So what we want is a healthier better educated more productive workforce Jamie just one last thought if you would then I'm sort of returning to that cost of living crisis I mean the pandemic is still there perhaps in the background But this really is going to be the main issue isn't it Surely for the people that you're speaking to it's rising food prices It's rising fuel prices What is the kind of mood I suppose where you are in terms of your voters You're right Caroline This is a thing that affecting people There's a lot of big news stories Ukraine things like that happening But in terms of affecting people's daily life it's that roughly 700 pound increase per household in fuel prices people are expecting another thousand later in the year The area I represent that's a billion pounds Of disposable income And that's going to affect small businesses and cafes and hospitality and theaters And it's going to have a real cascade effect The government really need to step upon this because if we allow this to go unchallenged then it's going to cause all sorts of damage later down the line And that's why I think we need to be taking proper investment in things like retrofit because we're wasting fast amounts of energy It's causing climate damage and some of the food prices are directly a result of that For example in Canada the crop failure last year is why trust the prices have gone up 90% That's where most of the week comes from So I think we do need to get on top of this and invest very heavily in tackling the climate emergency which will create jobs it will tackle the climate emergency It will reduce people's fuel bills and it will make the world a safer place because we'll have energy security So that was the labor mayor of the north of time combined authority Jamie Driscoll they're talking to us about the cost of living crisis the charter Rishi sunak under pressure to make announcements in the spring segment Next Wednesday which of course we will cover for you in full both on Wednesday and Thursday with a variety of guests talking about the policies of the government also later.

more Sources say the country's tech watchdog once management to take the company off the New York Stock Exchange and that's because of concerns about leakage of sensitive data Proposals under consideration include a straight up privatization or a share float in Hong Kong that would be followed by a delisting from the U.S. If the privatization proceeds the proposal would likely be at least at the $14 IPO price that's because a lower offer so soon after the IPO could prompt lawsuits or shareholder resistance Brian Curtis Bloomberg daybreak Europe Well on to some Central Bank talk now the Bank of England governor Andrew Bailey has signaled that policymakers have effectively abandoned forward guidance in Britain as a way of steering investors about the likely path of interest rates He said that the bank has recently been using softer evidence based guidance in a world of uncertainty Bey also said that policymakers will have to act if inflation starts prompting workers to push for higher wages and if they expect the prices will keep rising Meanwhile the European central banks sir Francois Gallo is not worried about inflation pressure in the year area becoming structural That was a word used this week He said that he sees no evidence of strong upward pressure on wages and while factors driving prices higher are real they are temporary according to him he says he's ready to

now KKR and CVC may actually team up on a bid Bloomberg Sara rappaport has the details Bloomberg's told KKR and CVC have held talks about the potential for a joint offer for telecom Italia That's

still debating the merits of teaming up and there is no certainty they will proceed with the joint offer Meanwhile adventists called on the idea of partnering with CVC on a bid itself in London I am Sarah port Bloomberg daybreak Europe On German company software is exploring options including a potential sale in one of the busiest ever years for deal making for German listed companies Bloomberg has been told that the software firm is working with advisers to gauge interest from potential buyers and they include private equity firms Private equity of course which is spent more than a $100 billion on deals involving German firms since the start of 2019 Okay that's a roundup of our top stories this morning Let's get the latest now in global news but beginning very much at a local level Has been both Leanne guerin because you've been speaking to a conservative MP Nikki aitken about the return of the night tube which has all been scuppered by the fact that there is actually strike action today across London on the tube network What's the latest I think there's lots of dismay for commuters and Christmas shoppers this morning Caroline It's actually our first major tube strike in almost 5 years I feel like I can't believe that and it does mean the pandemic seems to be a long way away The 24 hour walkout by members of the RMT union will affect the planned reopening of the night tube services Now conservative MP for the cities of London and Westminster Nikki akin told me why she's banging campaigning for night services to resume here in the capital There are a number of benefits particularly for women's safety that if you're on a night out you're able to get home to your part of the capital But also night workers those who are working in the nighttime economy over 60% of the employers so I employees are women And again we want them to be able to get home after a hard night's work to get home safely There's also the economic boost that the West End gives to London's economy generally You know it's the powerhouse of entertainment for the capital I just want to pick up on something Nikki was talking about there Women have been calling on London mayor Sadiq Khan to reinstate the night tube following the murders of Sabine Nessa and as Sarah everard as concerns about woman's safety in the capital do cause a lot of anxiety here Nikki Aiken told me that RMT union is putting people's lives at risk Both those women Sarah and Sabina were sadly and dreadfully murdered but there was still the tubes available at night in their server was not It was not late on either of those occasions and so there was public transport available But I'm talking about later on into the night after 1230 at night when the day tube finishes And that's when most people are looking to go home after a night out That's what is no night tube And the mayor has promised that it would be back up and running As soon as possible we've got two lines apparently reopening on the 27th of November but sadly now the RMT decided to funnily enough strike on that day It can't be a coincidence And so you know that type of action striking is putting women's lives at risk And I think they are MT should take a very hard look at themselves and ask themselves why they think they it is right to put the workers in interest in front of women's safety because as far as I'm concerned should be ashamed of themselves and cheap drivers get paid extremely well I just despair that yet again the mayor is being held to ransom Black Friday's on at gap factory and gap factory dot com

"Com slash professional Type of action striking is putting women's lives at risk and I think they are MT should take a very hard look at themselves and ask themselves why they think they it is right to put their workers in interest in front of women's safety because as far as I'm concerned should be ashamed of themselves and cheap drivers get paid extremely well I just despair that yet again the mayor is being held to ransom by his trade union Friends Caroline pretty strong words therefrom Nikki Aiken the MP but I did reach out to the RMT union for an interview However they did decline but they did send me a statement saying action goes ahead over imposition of impossible and unreasonable demands on staff in advance of the night tube reopening So in short they saying forcing drivers to work overnight and weekend services will wreck their work life balance and that's again according to the union So there seems to be a massive dispute happening and we also know that the pandemic has a really affected the finances of TfL that's transport for London which is now left us in a situation where we just don't appear to have the services to let people travel in and out of the city overnight and of course restore the nighttime economy Leon goes thank you so much for that reporting and for the interview with the conservative MP Nicky ache I mean they are though two separate issues in a way aren't they The RMT is annoyed that the coupler hundred overnight train drivers that were hired for the night tube separate to their main staff that those were let go because of the pandemic and now those overnight services have to be fulfilled by their workers So I kind of get that perspective It does seem quite separate though to kind of Nikki akins accusation around women's safety But I think it's really fascinating and it is the issue that every londoner frankly is going to be thinking about today surely with all these lines closer it seems like yeah we are definitely back to normal in London aren't we That's the first thing I thought this morning when I saw this story You know the central line jubilee northern Victorian piccadilly lined That's it Caroline You know you're going to struggle getting to work this morning We couldn't have imagined that two years ago could have we when the pandemic just began But I thought you brought up a really important there about the cuts that the rail service has seen and once again we have seen this over all sorts of places within government when the pandemic did hit so there seems to be a real issue happening within the tube service But when it comes to women's safety Caroline again like Nikki akin did pick up there a lot of the nighttime economy is women and we should be able to get home safely So that's another thing she is making very clear Yeah I mean I think overall it means that the funding for transport for London which largely relies on fares from passengers that's the issue really it needs to be reformed London is unlike most other major cities it doesn't basically get central government funding for transport in the capital and that's been a real problem for two years over the pandemic kind of emergency funds being granted Yeah so it's been quite tricky Thank you so much They are going for that special report for us on London and the London underground Let's get the sports news now His Chris cave It's understood Ralph rank is on the verge of becoming the new interim manager of Manchester United Michael Carrick still expected to be in the dugout for their Premier League match with Chelsea on Sunday though he says he's made his expectations clear to the players I say the same to my children you know all you can do is do your best And I can't ask any more of you Sometimes it will work sometimes maybe not but how can anyone else question how can anyone question if that's what you've got to give Giovanni van Bronco Scott off to a winning start as rangers manager with a two nil home win over Sparta Prague the result means they're through to the last 16 of the Europa League He says.

"From Bloomberg's European headquarters here in London and Caroline heparin with this Bloomberg radio business flash so European stocks open flat this morning U.S. features positive global stocks are near all time peaks but having said that we're not going anywhere much in Europe at the moment 3100 down two tenths of 1% That is despite an absolute hall of earnings reports from the all majors a shelf for example Airbus AB InBev UniCredit Sanofi VW Lloyd's also I thought was interesting lifting their outlook a stronger UK economy scene from Britain's biggest mortgage lender In terms of the other stories though that we're keeping an eye on of course it's the bond market in terms of the inflation induced bond route U.S. benchmark years on the ten year trade at once but 5 5 7 but it's the two year that's moved significantly for example in Australia U.S. yields have jumped 5 basis points on the two year note at 55 basis points Also for commodities are my global macro movers screen this morning We've got WTI crude oil futures down 9 tenths of 1% but you also have other significant movers for example natural gas down at 10% UK Nat gas down 9.8% iron ore slumping 4.1% So commodities are broadly on the retreat essentially and Bitcoin trades are 58,997 59,000 now for Bitcoin which have got close to 67,000 last week That is a move by radio business splash Now here's the endgame Like Caroline and thank you Russian president Vladimir Putin has told Gazprom to start refilling its European gas storage facilities in a move he says will ease pressure on the region's energy market Putin ordered the state controlled giant to start the process on the 8th of November when domestic storage sites will be full European gas inventories are at the lowest seasonal level in almost a decade Now rail strikes during the cop 26 climate summit in Glasgow have been called off the RMT union says a dispute over pay has been settled after talks with transport bosses at 2.5% pay rise for Scott rail workers has now been agreed Huge disruption was threatened as thousands of people descend on Scotland for that conference Now Joe lonsdale founder of Palantir technologies has stoked a debate on Twitter about parental leave the prolific venture capitalist says any prominent man who takes 6 months off when his newborn is with his newborn is a loser He made the comments in response to his tweet about U.S. transport secretary Pete Buttigieg who took time off to care for his child Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in 120 countries and Leanne guerin's this is Bloomberg a Caroline Well as she was two children two newborns at Buttigieg had But yes long-term has caused huge controversy with this view about kind of very traditional masculine roles It seems very much against the push for equality in the workplace right now I mean if you allow parent new parents to decide who it makes more sense to care for what over what period of time that seems like a really sensible policy because then people can just make decisions that are based on their own personal circumstances everybody has the opportunity and you can leave it up to them Yeah indeed But Leanne you're right to pick out that very interesting story that's had a big reaction Let's move on Talk about other things Well the budget of course and thanks so much for our guerrilla Yeah absolutely Let's take a moment to unpack the autumn budget shall we It is inflation Rishi sunak's new best friend then the Chancellor Rishi sunak appears to be embracing rising prices to deliver unexpected stimulus joining us now is Bloomberg's UK economy reporter Lee burden a lot of announcements in the budget then were previewed in the media before the speech Lizzie Even got told off for that in parliament But there were a few surprises and part of the surprise was the way he seemed to be more generous than maybe we'd anticipated Definitely it's not what we expected given the inflation backdrop and given everything he'd been saying about wanting to reign in the public finances He seemed to be channeling Boris Johnson upbeat instincts more than his own fiscal instincts He had 75 billion pounds worth of giveaways He raised funding for every government department There is investment in infrastructure education skills the rabbit out of the heart was the taper rate for universal credit But at the same time he raised the tax burdens the highest level as a percentage of GDP since 50 He said that was a necessary evil because of the pandemic He doesn't like it but he wrote apologize for it And that's really causing discomfort on the Tory back benches Ideologically on the one hand and that also because it could hold back income growth going forward But he says he's got to read taxes now so that you can cut them by the end of the parliament Okay What's the business response been then Even though it was described as the champagne budget because he knows the biggest and half a century pub stocks rallied even though there is this one year tax cut for hospitality company The lobby group came back saying that business still thesis tax rises and really there's little if any new money announced in their eyes Okay so that's the lukewarm response We did or what did we learn from the new OBR forecasts about the future of the economy And what does that mean for the Bank of England Because the OBR gave the Chancellor more money to play with didn't they But the danger of going into this was the more money Rishi sunak decided to spend the more he risked perhaps pushing up inflation expectations Exactly So the reason that he was able to allow him to leave giveaways was because of the wood revision and outlook for the economy And it's the biggest in four decades of broadcasting It's interesting though because the OBR said that the impact of Brexit would be worse than COVID in the long run and raised the cost of living But as you say the inflation that will happen as a result of this growth makes a rate hike from the Bank of England next week even more likely Rich you see that said that for every percentage point rise in inflation it drives at the cost of servicing the government's debt by 23 billion pounds And the OBR was warning that interest rates have up to 3.5% would be needed maybe needed to pay it So do that well aware of the risks that he has injecting so much government spending Okay very interesting Well we'll bring you of course the decision from the Bank of England next week Thanks so much Lizzie Burden Bloomberg's UK economy reporter for unpacking the autumn budget from the Chancellor Well we've been talking a lot this morning about rate expectations from Central Bank So it makes sense also to look to what the ECB is going to be doing today It is decision day but it still expected to stand pat We may see them laying the foundations for bigger decisions to come in December Let's bring in Bloomberg's European correspondent a Maria tadeo on this point Murray we did just have Spanish CPI figures really soaring so that adds to the inflation debate but no policy action expected from the ECB today Yes we just had a print that shows inflation and price pressures in Europe is really heating up and at this point it does seem that this is not just a one off We had price pressures price increases in Spain on the headline basis jump in 5.5%.

"Whitehouse dot gov. Was he sure about that. Ten mean you. East starts reading the teleprompter for joe biden a really high level. That's way better than he has been recently on on still pretty awful. He went on to threaten the public onto. I paint the people who've who've chosen not to device seen as this whole style group blocking public health and causing the calamity. he put into them as the ones who will be the victims. Basically the only people dying the unvaccinated. It's an pundak of the unvaccinated. He said he chemo with with us. Started in discussing statistics but the statistics. He selected were very selective and he would never compare lake with lake and there was no cloudy on on it. Went on the basis was very clear. The state the government the federal government is going to use it. It's it's power both legally and in terms of law enforcement and collection on the test of in terms of contract on financial power to coerce companies to core ser- staff into into becoming vaccinated. They cut monday to because that would be illegal. But the going to buoy companies into doing the thing that would be illegal for the federal government to do so at interesting stunts by the bite administration. I got reaction to it. Falsely in a t-shirt for way you can get a t shirt knows. I picture of joe biden at it. Says your body my choice This is obviously mocking the pro-abortion slogan on a of many years standing on is perfectly. Accurate is the policy on. We've got an article encouraged people to go in and find and read it in full looking at this from point of view of how does How should we the act to this. It's it's a bullying. I am by the by the federal government. That's going to remove your basic rights is going to try to force medical intervention of pollen. You said assault on the most core freedom ho should be the spawned a survey article in little dot com an republished my gold goats and guns article by thomas a and he's talking about the both delimitations off biden us all seen. How old mountains illegitimate incompetent. Incoherently starts off but then goes on to explain that the the the threatening nature the buoy nature walks coming from the biden administration is demanding is trying to provoke a violent reaction civil war type. Reaction demonstrations and violence and anger and rage. an say. That's not the way we should respond. These people behaving like children. We should treat them as such they should and it should meet a com- a serta statement of porpoise. No histrionics no court challenges. No media conferences no marches to the capital. This is what they want you to do. So they can justify self righteously the that you have the internment camps that you the tattooists says just exude knoll. He saying that we need to task is shining the light in this northern angered in petty for decades and mistook of silence saint. It is past time. We abused him of that notion. So he's calling for essentially silence or quiet firm resistance on a decision not have anything to do with a state that would behave in this way. Rather than falling into the trump off of anger and street protests and violence on creating the sort of target that state with an agenda to divide people to set one community against the other would welcome such an important point that they already or these statements by people in power is to inflame their respective nations calls division Stir up trouble because then everybody's easier to control so the more stable measured and precise we keep things the stronger we all. Well let's let's Another comment from uk. Viewer about razor blades in post as broin just equipped for your information regarding of news regarding razor blades being floated behind dundee banks posters. It appears they roll it out on any campaign they see fit or linked one to anti five g. of one to the far reut also know through personal experience this tax take was used against extinction rebellion during this paint streets campaign around the time the loss general election as it was at that time involved with i saw but unfortunately i call article to this particular towing but it showed many members who were being And this was the one of the two links that was sent through sites news corona virus razor blades in anti five g. posters on telegraph poles. Nothing that's may twenty twenty and we've got neo nazis concealing blades behind posters On this is in the times and this is december twenty twenty and. I think you've got bit more to tell us on this. Yes absolutely because we were talking about this on friday last week. Covert nineteen anti vaccine posters. Find with razor blades. Attached to the back of the cup people as they're taken down. Union says skied news reporting this They quoted Mick lynch from the rmt union. Andy andy fox conspiracy theorist resorting to this disgusting practice of listening. They're propoganda with razor blades. Needs to know that they will fist. for criminal. prosecution will sky. News wasn't the only organization to cover it Last week the other one was the bbc But the bbc and the reason we. I go back to the way back. Machine here is because the bbc's initial Headline for this was london. Transport staff warned of anti vaccination posters with razor blades that echoes were the the sky news article or mature whether the skydivers news article was prompted by this one But that's a bit strange. We'll see in a second but anyway. This particular headline resulted in a tweet from hong kong. The former health secretary This is a new low. Even for antivirus says the fox propoganda is bad enough to put razor blades on anti facts. Leaflets to harm people would removing this horrific. I hope the police come down on these people with the full force of the law. These linked to the bbc article. So he's tweeted this side without any evidence whatsoever that this is actually what happened But strangely enough not long after. He tweeted out The bbc changed headline to be london transport. Star staff warned of anti-basque posters with razor blades. So they're not entirely sure whether the posters were on. Vox or whether they were anti mosque. But if definitely settled on anti mask and this kiss So but the problem was that in this article London transport stuff warned of anti mask posters with razor blades. They linked to what appears to be the origin of the story which has nothing to do with transport for london at all but was to do with claim that poster so be put up at cardiff with an exactly same photograph as you can see if i just flicked back to the article last week and the article from july cardiff woman cut by Behind anti mosque poster so it was not anti facts. Poster a. t. f. l. than it was not the mosque poster a. t. f. l. That's london knights ninety mosque poster in cardiff..

"Grimstad has been largely successful. But what does happen overnight. Even though those distracted directed plotted centrally organized. Bits of terrorism. Take bit longer to rebuild overnight. You can't have a Sorry a psychological boost. Morale boost to extremists already here or in other countries so We've got to start worrying about terrorism again immediately.

Sisterhood who were trying to save afghans And of course you have This lady Onscreen at the moment. whose name. Alice just one thank you. And she was making phone calls to people in afghanistan during the evacuation partly in directing ordering military personnel on the ground there. Yeah incredible absolutely incredible story. She does look very noyce in this picture. Though with a combat gear and earrings the to go together. So well or think yes. Well thank you very much. The person that sent this through too but Somebody pointed that. Of course is the same lady that left a well. It was described in this article in the mirrors alluded gun but it was loaded with blanks. At the headline here is calcium covered. This was back in two thousand and five when she was working for the special investigation branch the royal military police. She was on some kind of training operation and got as they described Short short And so she Headed into a supermarket to use the lose their and just happened to leave her Holstered gun redo. This started a nationwide search for the for the gun. so This is the kind of person that we're dealing with here and well just wanted to answer that but a think you do a little bit work. What she's up to now she's actually an nlp an lp trained Future lead associates. Training will sorts of organizations in the ship Which i think is a really fantastic contrast between her sister who works the gun and showing people how to do it. Really yes i if The head of ms five is telling us we got be worried about islamic extremism. Of course. we've got to remember. We've got to be worried about right wing extremism as well and of course. What is concentrating right. Wing extremism extremism these days. Will it's on locked on protesters so on so here's skied use The headline is cove nineteen anti vaccine. Posted a fine with razor blades. Attached to the back of them to cup people as they're taken done union says i'm so this is the rmt. The rail maritime transport union has called for the courts to the hardest possible line when dealing with perpetrators behind the dangerous posters and mc ledge. Who's the head of the rmt's said any antivirus. Vox conspiracy theorist resorting to this disgusting practice of listening. Their propoganda with razor blades needs to know that they will face criminal prosecution. Will the question is who put them up. Of course nobody knows who put them up. Were they there were they. Actually put it all in fact Transport for london said they're not aware of any incidents of posters with blades. Touched them being find a way to the stores. Come where did this story come from israel. i don't know But of course you know that would be pretty disgusting if somebody did put such a poster up at the point is i make lynch more. Rmt union is prepared to push the story. Then yes. I would just suggest that. Perhaps it's related to this story. Which of course from the bbc we highlighted this a couple of weeks ago. From the bbc's auntie disinformation whatever she is by spraying. Where is the audi locked on. Movement headed And she was pushing A piece of video a little short report which is absolutely suggesting that the anti locked eye movement is some kind of gateway to to right wing extremism and that people that are involved in the anti locked movement are heading in the direction of criminals themselves. This is a narrative which is building and this sky news article and this story about Razor blades on the box of posters fades into that narrative. Just suggested props. We might be a little skeptical about A budget of just add with marianna spring of cool. She thinks she knows what's happening in the world. Salvati doesn't cause she's in the bunker. The bbc but the twitter page enables people to send a factual information documents Brealey analysis. Some of which we've we've taken people through Also provide that evidence and then ask the question. Keep it absolutely evidence. Factually based and put her under pressure with questions. is a look. She can do to help marianna spring actually think of it instead of just being a bbc propagandist now. A couple of weeks ago We mentioned Leslie chloe smith the minister for the constitution and that she was talking about the state of democracy and the uk instead of democracy generally at she said For elected in the second american president john adams was strikingly pessimistic about democracy. Remember it never lost long. He wants warned. But it's exhausts a murders itself those adversaries fibber. Control corruption conformity. We fight for freedom responsibility. Enterprise intolerance with what she sang So that was a couple of weeks ago but it fascinates me now because the question is what is in these people's minds but democracy in the state of democracy because of course they're not putting bill on elections bill at which is there to keep our elections free and fair and will ensure democracy across the uk continues to thrive so they've got to put more legislation in place to walk to counter people that are attempting to undermine democracy in the uk as got to the point that there's so much cynicism about democracy in the uk that people are deliberately going out to undermine the elections It's not clear exactly what's going through her mind but anyway she set out In the commons. The government's plans to update electoral law. it's delivering partly on a uk wide manifesto commitment on it's going to help safeguard elections and then sure democracy remains secure fair modern transpired that if you've finished throwing up into the nearest bucket after i read that bit light The new law is going.

Ed milliband memes and the funniest part of this is not me. Rating the memes. That sort of moderately funny. Maybe impulse but is as. I'm them into the end of this. I nearly knock over the lap the tool which the laptop show me. The meat is is fixed. And of course. I did that and then probably somebody at the publishers. Said it will take that out. But they didn't take that bit out so they're left to in and actually i wouldn't have mentioned this just because of the on that she was very nice but last night. My son daniel said to me. I told you about this video. He suddenly said. Oh the admin about meves videos really funny particularly that bit where you nearly over the laptop lau. Anyway i've definitely it's definitely got some coverage if daniel seeing sort of i mean he wasn't anybody in the family must have seen it on youtube or something. Well i have to be honest. You know youtube gives you recommended videos. Yeah it recommended it to me the other day and i thought oh that is ed's video and isn't about nine minutes long and i just thought i haven't got nine minutes and you did. It takes a lot for me to watch a youtube video. That's longer than two or three minutes. I mean that's obviously a good epitaph about our relationship quote. I haven't got nine minutes now. What's your reason to be cheerful slightly embarrassed to say this after the conversation. We've just had. But my documentary went out on radio to last weekend about the beatles anthology in the ninety s and be sounds now if you wanna listen to it and after add a fellow. Podcast joe wispy. Who is a guy who hosts a podcast go beatles. Books sent me a youtube link now. This video was about twenty minutes longer than i did. Watch it and it was a link to an eye. Tv documentary From that time which was a build up to this beatles anthology and it's lots of famous people talk about their love of the beatles and the reason is my reason for jeff. It's such a strange collection of people. So it's people. You'd expect like elton john and cilla black and lulu and then some american stars of the time like mel gibson joan rivers donald trump alarmingly crops up in it then like nineteen kids like kate. Moss jarvis cocker noel gallagher. Some odd names like ian beefy. Both them and dennis northern. But the thing that i loved about it was i was watching. And there was a guy i can identify. Fighter took a screen grab and sent a picture to you. But i figured it out by the time you replied. It was the late. Mp for tottenham ernie grant bernie grant and he was in singing beatles song. She's leaving home as was the former. Rmt union boss. jimmy knapp. Wow and i just loved it because of what it says about how times have changed. Could you imagine an it. Primetime pop culture documentary featuring a union leader in it. Now you know how when you saw somebody tells you a story. That's one thing that sticks in your head. The thing that sticky in my head is is twenty minutes. It was twenty minutes long. I mean really quite unfortunate timing..

"rmt union" Discussed on The Leader

"The day. You had barely begun at London Bridge Station when the delay announcement started pretty miserable returned to work for train. Commuters only only made worse by this morning's average fare rise of two point seven percent. That's justified hike. According to Robert Nisbet from the rail delivery group which represents train in companies where an industry like any other that's facing rising costs the staff bill for example but said he'll costs as well what we want to do is we want want to cover the day to day running cost of the railway to free up billions of pounds of investment for the public and private sector. But this is an average figure. It's still just below the rate of inflation flation and that's for the third year running but for some passengers using South Western railways. The increased prices were compounded by cancellations. The aftershock of a twenty seven day strike by the RMT union. An editorial column can't quite believe it. The reason for the latest cancellations nations is the gods who inflicted the strike have been off-duty for so long. They need to be retrained to ensure that they are properly refreshed in terms of all necessary. Surrey safety activities. The same applies to some drivers. The situation would be farcical if it were not so serious it is yet. Another reminder of the damage caused by the unions militancy regarding its misguided grievance over the role of train gods it is worth pointing out again. An experience on other lines has shown that drive only trains are safe the fact that the disruption now has to continue even longer perhaps more legitimate safety safety reasons is a bitter irony that will be of little consolation to passengers implementation of the government plan. John Fashanu Union legislation banning future rail strikes unless the union concerned has reached a minimum service agreement with the relevant rail. Company cannot come seen enough city hall editor Raw. Slider we've been talking about the fare rises for a few months now now. They've hit and nobody's happy. Are They not happy for commuters coming into London today at the regretted certainly with a seeing the season tickets going up by I. Two point seven percent two point eight percent and also those own southwestern railways the trains that come into Waterloo had the added misery of having lots of the trains not running. And this is a this culmination of what's been a very long running saiga queer the RMT guards have gone straight. Take the the actually. The strike ended last night actually at midnight. It Run for twenty seven days making it the longest streak in Yuki real history. But I'm afraid. The fakes continued. TEND TO S- morning and hundreds of trains were cancelled again because bizarrely some of these girls had been off so long on strike that they were then judged to require l. safety training to make sure they were fit to print the trains again. That cannot have gone down well with commuters Gannett. You can imagine how few days would be as as we see to the. Ns this double whammy really if you if you. You wouldn't be happy to be going back to work today on a sort of chilly January for stay back in the office. I you're paying more for your travel and then you're standing on the platform waiting for the train to come in. It doesn't come and you just think it just couldn't get any more ludicrous. Really for people no fun at toll. So do we know when things will get back to normal. Well even Woz news is that there could be more strikes on the way the RMT has not given upon this the row center in what's called driver only operation which essentially means that the drivers open and shut the doors the MTA says this is not safe which is disputed rated by the train operator on the RMT's arguing to have conductor or a guard on all trains as is the case on some lanes. Just no those no say that Stroz going to go away and anytime soon and more stake. These could be announced in the next few weeks. There is some good news on transport unspoilt in London. The mayor of London has announced a new companion packs which means for those disabled under this. Those older Londoners who need a companion to get around the city. We'll have a free companion pass and often an a companion for a disabled landed. A as as bad as having a lift having step free access and this is another example of the difference we will make should. I be returned. The Math London will city has kicked off the New Year. By essentially going into reelection moods the middle elections are coming coming up on the seventh of me and CDC as part of his sort of I sort of a Rybeck intone. He saying that he's come up with this. Hi Dear we are if you are. A Disabled Londoner underrated qualify for disabled persons freedom. Pass which essentially give you free travel across chips and buses in the capital but need help to go around if you have a family member a relative or friend who is your cater Sadique site here is that should he be reelected. Come me he will then ensure that that person the killer gets a free pass as well. But the mayor's record in improving access to tis stations isn't quite promised as it. That's right you could see. It's probably a second-class Service so far from city he has upgraded taints shoop Stations to make them stay free since he was elected. Me Twenty Sixteen. His initial promise was that more than one hundred would have converted to being state deep-freeze essentially helping lifts or ramps to make sure you can get from outside the station to onto the train Byron Means Essentially using lifts and so on the hill of others. That has not happened so there is a sense that yes this is a good idea to have the companion pass but he has actually not been delivering quite as much as he promised I initially when he was when he was first elected. Are we now at the point where we're going to be hearing a lot about relations. I think we may be. I guess the combination nation of bricks being slightly closer to being done the new government in place on the be a gradual speeding up towards me. I think I I think it will be gentle. I wouldn't expect much until props six weeks I really Under me actually. Be overtaken in the public interest by Costa Twenty the football championships as well. That makes catch ribot more which comes up slightly later but I think I would expect to be more policy announcements akin to this but city. He's very keen to essentially get from the front fit this morning. Next if you want good good music you need somewhere to be an attempt Montizo optically bothered before you go on supply.
