Brexit negotiations extended
"The brexit negotiations have been extended. It's been a tense weekend of talks which ended without a resolution except that the teams will continue to bargain. Darn mccaffrey's urine news political editor. Ann joins me now. Darna blustery man and a crumpled face and impeccably turned out an utterly composed woman libertine and lutheran images of boris johnson's meeting with usher underlying dominated the front pages and it seemed to me at least pretty much characterize the tone of the brexit negotiations. So can you tell us what happened over the weekend will in many ways. Of course the talks restarted. Again as you say. After that meeting with vonda line and boris johnson in brussels on wednesday nights they did seem not make an awful awful lot of extra progress. They inched forward to a large degree editor. Tina particularly in this area of the level playing field dot es britain would have to adhere to many of the rules and regulations of the european union for years to come that wants to have access to the single market particularly on this idea of divergence. Oh britain wants to forge. Don't power in the world committee regards. That's what brexit is. All rexiti is all about was the european union since she says well. If you do that that means consequences. It means. We may well the limit your access to the single market and the have been suggestions that it britain diverged. Too far the cop. Some of those rules and regulations that brussels could put on what a cold kind of like tariffs taxes on some of its goods to try and keep it into line. And that's been the really controversial area on that point. Europe seems to be conceding some ground that may be britain might be able to reciprocate by doing exactly the same to the eu all that the independent all between posts deciding if britain is undercut those regulations. That in the end that process is a bit more complicated and drawn out and then the eu it initially anticipated all although that's an awful lot of detail on what is a minor point there are still these inefficient gaps but there is a sign of progress and the reason that the talks continued. Go beyond yesterday is done to kind of to simple reasons. A neither side wants to be seen to walk away from these talks. Georgina no wants to collapse them. Because ultimately they'll always be a blame game about who brought about the no deal brexit and second of all you know it may well bore us all to death and there's no home and carry on talking no one loses so why not talk until the cows come home or indeed the. We're not allowed fireworks in us even till they're crackers get pulled. Whatever happens on new year's eve this year. So i mean the talks could actually go on until the deadline which is the thirty first of december. We'll in practical terms not really. Id so that the front pages of today's daily telegraph suggests that talks could carry on until new years. That's the headline. at least though. It doesn't suggest what year which is likely distancing. No i in theory. And i think we all kind of i keep saying this into the last week. I was told last week by an eu diplomat that were looking at the eighteenth around the as well as the last days to secure agreement because then we really all pushing the envelope in terms of actually just having time at all for both the european parliament and the british folder to ratify this agreement. Because it will have to be. There is a deal will need to be ratified by both parliaments. Not there is talk and with the eu everything is flexible that potentially it could be agreed by e you leaders and ratified provisionally in the new year. So almost in retrospect. I'm not entirely sure that can happen with the uk parliament but you know talks will continue at some stage. Somebody's gonna have to make a decision though. I mean they cannot continue indefinitely. And as you've said as the telegraph suggested they definitely cannot continue beyond news because of the legal deadline that is in place. But i mean there are also things like for instance tax systems need more than a fortnight to boot up to change various things. We're also being told that supermarkets have been ordered to stock up the goods. In event of a no deal will cost twenty percent more that there are interim measures to keep planes flying and so on. I mean there's so much detail that needs to be worked out the things that are really interesting about this first of all even if there is a deal it's only really covering about twenty cents of the existing rules and normality. That's already in place which means that's eighty. Percents is either having to be made up by changes that businesses are having to make stuff that you and i won't see but will cost them time and money and additionally the will be disruption because of course will be extra checks at borders particular over in calais and that means that we will see many more pictures of those lorries cues them for after aftermarket after mile. And you're right. We all still likely to see an increase in food prices to a degree. If there is no deal that gets worse because the tariffs potentially william place will be in place sterling will potentially fall even further on those two factors will mean that food prices will likely increase the destruction means that supermarkets already ordering goods talk about destruction to medical supplies and also in the amended. No deal as you rightly dives there will still have to be many deals. Don't breakneck speed to ensure that you know planes continue to be able to fly into european espace. That lorries are able to even enter the opinion so even if there is no overall trade agreements that will still have to be some deals just to make sure that things carry on beyond the. I generally in a relatively normal way now. What about the navy. The royal navy has been told that it should patrol to police channel waters To to stop illegal fishing as it may well be by then Charles michel the president of the european council referring to that said the britain was not lose. Its cooling. Go overboard he said. I'm trying to be serious on the european side. At least we keep our sang for. Yeah i think we'll see what happens with the role now. I mean even in the event of not we'll see what happens with the law. Maybe i'm sure they will patrol and all we're going to get into fish wars that we saw. I think it was back in the nineteen seventies involving iceland's when it really did get a bit nasty and ships were sunk certainly pretty badly damaged in wars over fishing there. You have to remember the european union in its deal contingency. Planning junior suggested that. If britain bolts these breakneck speeds kind of temporary deals. That i was talking about when it comes to the ability to move call goran or indeed planes that they would have to concede that the current agreement on fishing would continue for at least another year. Which makes me think that in the ends. That probably was likely to happen. Not least of all as well because we have to remember no deal. I deal on. Fishing may be banned from both sides and fishing but no deal is also bad. And i'm not entirely sure that the fishing communities of the east coast of england or northern france. Want no deal either. Because that may mean they don't have access to each other's waters but given the acrimony were to see in the nastiness in no deal. Brexit may will also mean that those uk fishermen for example will not be able to sell the fish to the european market.

Basically what it means the next person in line for the throne when the queen dies will be prince. Charles right that will then be followed. By prince william his eldest son then prince william's eldest son prince george. Okay then we have his prince william's daughter princess charlotte.

"Welcome to amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Devon and Cornwall. I'd like to welcome to the show. Ryan Duffield from Devon who has come to talk to us about the city of Plymouth in southern England and also the surrounding area, including Devon and Cornwall. Ryan welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me Howie. Good well, you know and it's funny because we just talked about the English coast, but we've moved a little further to the West and talk. Talk about a different region of the coast than we did on the show recently when we talked about Suffolk and the the downs. Why should someone go to Plymouth Plymouth? Actually it's a fantastic city. It's a city that goes amazing maritime history and tradition that dates right back to the medieval times, but actress quite often overloaded when people think of cities in England. They think oh of Lunden Bama again. Manchester Liverpool perhaps. I think Plymouth is just as much. Interest is end if those cities, but it's just north of us so much, and I think particular twenty American. Listeners interested is also the city where the pilgrim father set sail on the mayflower. Sixteen twenty associated with the traditional thanksgiving. S Pre interesting point. Is also surrounded by beautiful coastline. It's right on the border of the county's of Devon and Cornwall these are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK down in the South West of England, said Scott lost offer. Willing we're looking for dividend cornwall if we go down to the English map and you go far bottom left. That's where we are, and if you go further bottom further left from there, you end up in the ocean. So we're. Right on the south coast of Devon Oklahoma so are literally facing out to the Atlantic okay well and facing out towards the south. Yes, excellent well, what? Are. You GonNa. Recommend Fourth Festival is obviously starting in the city centre, so the city is actually pretty much based around the coast and its large harbours, so I would say starting day Sutton Haba, which is the main harbor in the city and that so where the city spreads out from I'm from around the. You've all sorts of things to say side. You've got things like the mayflower steps. Steps, which is where there's the pilgrim fathers actually set sail from and this museum dedicated to that you've also got what's the Barbican? which is this old coupled street state specs, medieval periods, which is full of these is correct, slim pubs and bars, restaurants shops things like that, and it's one of the few passes cities. The city was actually bombed June. Sacramento War by the Nazis and the. The city was destroyed, and this is one of the well preserved areas of that city out, also recommend site just basically following the coastline of the city's known as Britain's Ocean City for good reason, because it will revolve around that and overlooking the area. What looks like is huge, fool trust, but what actually is actively operating? Royal Marines and Royal Navy base. That's right in the heart of. Of the city and they still have people that you can save people, training and things, and they actually do tours of that interestingly and I'm not sure how many military basis you can know many Abitur tour during the middle of the day. You can't do that well and it seems like one of the reasons they do that, too. Is You mentioned? This is not a new military base. Quite historical, so this is where the ships sailed out to fight the Spanish Armada for absolutely, and the city is very synonymous with Francis Drake. Who is the man who led the defeating of the Spanish the? He was from Plymouth. Things like the main shopping center in the city named optimus could drake circus, and you'll find lots of other places around the city named after him. You also have along. Along the Bob sell them this coupled medieval street. You have the Plymouth Gin distillery, which is actually the oldest gin distillery in the country, and of course you can go in then you can have tools that you can find out how the GIN is made. You can find out the botanic WHO's they use? Jin's at the end of that. So if you're GIN, Fan Pathak place to go we'll. Get into more detail on all these things. So in terms of the BARBICAN. For instance you mentioned the Plymouth Gin distillery. There are different pubs and things. Do you have a favorite pub? Is there someplace that we ought to check out? There is a place I feel bad commending it, but there's a web spins now Weber spins is a national chain across the country. If you live in the UK, you know about web of Spain's. They've actually got really nice bar that down on the Babacan. Babacan, which is right by the Plymouth Gin Distiller Selfish Nickel Jin from that, but they've got huge selection of our genes of a drinks there, but all the buildings there because they're all medieval style buildings that is then become ingrained within the actual itself garnered sovereignty. Highly recommend that this is places down the thyroid record. Think of any off the top of my head. Okay mix over a new kind of places and very traditional old pubs as well which great.

Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn And Dominic Grieve discussed on Coffee House Shots
"I'm joined by cables and James for safe while James. We're expecting a number of resignations this week. We've already on from Sarah Duncan which we will talk about shortly but yesterday Philip Hammond went on the mall showing confirmed that he was going to resign after Theresa May's final Prime Minister's questions he's jumping before he's pushed isn't he in the whiteboard in Boris Johnson's campaign and during the cabinet is it oh no we had Hammond down for John Throw now. He said he won't serve raises. A more serious points about how he has behaved. I mean there's a very difficult question to answer which is which is he was the chancellor when trees I said no deal is better than a bad deal. He was the chance to win all school. Fifty one votes injuries may kept saying that so it does raise a question about whether he was ever actually committed to the policy of a day of government element of which he was a member where he actually meant it. I also think he's behaving in a deeply irresponsible manner because it is quite clear that whatever you think of it Theresa May's with Griffin is not going to Paul sounds comments so you need to ease off rob some kind of concessional compromise to get this thing through and by what he's doing and the interviews he's giving in the European press on his shenanigans in parliament he is basically saying to you. You do is compromise or for any concession because parliament's elements can stop no deal but as rebel dominic grieve says the only way we see Sir stopping ideal is to bring down and it is not clear yet for they have the numbers so he is paradox the actually making no deal more likely I mean the question you need to think about which is which do you think is worse for the British economy in the short even in the short to medium-term. No deal oracle been government. I think it's a fairly strong case that it is a Corbin government. He's also making that more likely I e P regrettable about the way that moment is paving the moment and it is kind of hard not to think that he is goes into his head that he wants to go down in history for something and and he also is driven. I think bar a personal dislike of Boris Johnson I mean they all they are about as different as characters. Come be and I think there is kind of I think you see it's going to be this is undoubtedly going to be a problem for. I want someone Jeez people for them. How does more technocratic mind almost find offensive and so they feel bound by the normal ties of Lords obligation that people would find to a former cabinet according to become Prime Minister K._t.? Philip Hammond is joining the Google could score. Does it become nine on the back benches of <hes> Torian Dominic grieve like David Goal obviously who are very worried about the consequences of no deal exit. Do you think sees himself as being the ringleader of this new group and if not who else I think he seasons I was having a pivotal role play and certainly to people who are involved. Perhaps on various this what's up groups for being proactive and interesting have those speculation but world theresa may might play but that is not seen as a row where you have some really leading from the front at all you might be able to bring them in a backward way whereas I I think when it comes to Philip Hammond he is someone who's very happy to go and bat for it and you see that has multiple media appearances. I think when you look the with squad and is going to be a wide ranging faction in the sense that perhaps you have ron thirty figures who are sympathetic to the coors the coups being to prevent a no deal brexit but they will have different points of high father willing to go so you mentioned Dominic Grieve Dominic Grieve is in a very small number of the squad in the sense he is willing to vote down the government or at least he has said he is in a will to stop. No deal brexit happened has suggested he might be willing to do that. He hasn't said Faucheux but he could laugh will be in the more hardline element say the bulk of the awkward squad so whether <unk> actually property matters most in the day to day running of Boris Johnson's government before you get to what we think he might be that ultimate showdown but you might have a confidence vote is what can they team up on. Now figures like David Gook I think he uh of azan we expect for example Greg Clark. We don't expect him to resign anticipation but will likely not be in the Boris Johnson Cabinet and fluker join this great when it comes to confidence as its deputy FAA supply SA- cutting off supply seems to be a step too far when it comes to finances so the things that they can team up on would be when you look to what Ambrose described as an activist speaker Joe Becker and he saw that last week with their Perot Gang Amendment Dominic grieve came up with that is. Something people feel much more comfortable going for because it feels like a less drastic mechanism so I think that's where this team can come together and when you look within that you also have a Muharan reports you could as as soon as Boris Johnson is appointed as prime minister barring a big shock for you could have Torri M._p.'s defect to the Liberal Democrats. Now that's different element here. Those people here very pro second referendum the anti no deal shoe but it it goes well beyond and I would say the bulk of the Gook squad have voted for Brexit deal many times free times so there is one way for Boris Johnson to almost end his his problem there which is if he can get change if he can get a due to Vatan this group that the not so hard line in their ears majority that they're not gonNA vote for anything. Boris Johnson comes up with but they do need it to be a deal. I've been the Golden Association from those cases right and then which is if you are working. WE'VE DOMINIC GRIEVE STEVE DOMINATE GREAVES AIM is not to prevent no deal is to have a second referendum into how the U._K.. Remain in the European Union and I mean this is actually a real problem for some members of this group which is essentially when when you choose your political allies here it becomes your message risk getting lost. It risks looking what you're joining move dominant grieve in his attempt to stay in the E._U.. Raleigh than trying to prevent is leaving without a deal and that is going to be a major kind of questionable how his group coheres when varies of stress intention put on that will be put on it when a deal okay for example if a deal does come back do the same gamers and then just ingredients as well still vote against the deal because they want a second referendum and remain all always have as spent so arguing that no deal would would be catastrophic that they would feel obliged to vote for a deal. I mean I think this is their difficulties and contradictions within this group Katie. Tell us about Sir Allen Dunkin's resignation so remiss as of this morning the minister was going to resign today expecting the bulk as for Hamilton the anti nausea to as opposed to have the minimum amount of time between the new prime minister taking over and the being a vacancy in your department. Perhaps a vacancy theresa may try and fill it. It seems now we're getting to the shorter time may just be the vacant so Annan Dunkin decided not wait until Wednesday's. He has gone on Monday morning now. I think this is attracted. Criticism for a number of reasons fest off some have suggested. The Alan Duncan hasn't always been the principal character when it comes to the cools attached himself to sue people point to the referendum when he was in talks about joining the board and then in the end decided apparently because he cannot get a certain position by his name to go for remain and that's what people think he's insincere. I think there is a more practical note here which is it may not be specific brief but clearly what's happening right now. In Iran the crisis in the factories May as haven't have Cobra meetings to to be a Foreign Office minister. Dan Ready have one. He was suspended in field -Unding who's quite busy doing the leadership contest exactly the Foreign Secretary Hughes O._T.. Trying to walk away he is getting Steve if he doesn't have his upset tomorrow. It doesn't really paint this picture of government that is taking a situation completely serious. They and I think it was just absence. Idea which is very easy right now. I tried to haunt you paint the Tory party as warring factions when if you want to be the party of you would think that there is a sense that you need to look at your on top of this I thought it was quite interesting as we've seen Greg Hands Jeremy Hunt supporter today take to social media and and say that he does not support preemptive ramp to resignations and he thinks does play into the hands of Jeremy Kuban so I think it's just Boris Johnson supporters who questioning some of the time yeah we've had some comments from people like Hugh Merryman who's Philip Hammons P. P. S. on Westminster unstrap last night saying that the government basically dropped the ball on the Iran Crisis James. Is it the case that this is about how the government relates to trump will try not to relate to trump in closely. I read this government moment was as it so often has been on the trump. Administration was caught between two stools which is once the U._K.. Via Gibraltar had impounded that Iranian tanker it was point clear for there was going to be Iranian retaliatory action of some sort when you consider the soy's of the Royal Navy at the moment is quickly if British flag shipping wants to be protected against retaliation that was going to need to be active cooperation with the U._S. and what appears to have been the case is that there was a hesitancy about going down that route even though the Americans were suggesting it because they didn't want to look like they were signing up to the full gamut of U._S.. Close John Roberts obviously against the Iran nuclear deal which the U._K.. is in favor of home not having that this is a big strategic confusion on the government's behalf which is once you take a decision to impound that tanker then you had to act to protect your own shipping in the most comprehensive way possible and the seizure of his ship on Friday shows that the Royal Navy simply doesn't clearly is not adequate soy's to do that right now and F. was going to need assistance from the U._S.. Which is the largest navy in the world and so I've been there is there is a question here of of how this was handled and I think if it wasn't for the fact that was storage contest ongoing? This will be a big story. Also the other issue is the Jeremy Corbyn is not exactly Joe. Jeremy Corbyn is taking predictable approach which is everyone should deescalate. What why are we upset? Iranians in the first place approach of his question here I mean there is there is a I mean the government is very vulnerable. Were more focused right on time. which is you made the decision to impound the ship because he believed it was going to Syria and breaking sanctions? You've failed to Defend U._K.. Shipping why and finally we get the result of the LIB DEM leadership contest test the softening Katie expecting Jo Swinson to win or we or is it much closer than it appeared start the contest but I think when it comes to leadership contests mistakes ulcer in the Tory leadership is very hard for the polling often into Western. What is exactly going on is interesting difficult? Speaking to Redemption Bove's is the sense. I think that Jason is more likely to get this biting. The margin is going to be interesting to the case that perhaps it didn't mean every time you speak to lived M._p.. They will tell you how friendly the contest is and how they're absolutely delighted rather not at David J Simpson even basements in will say that should be delighted if adcose obviously has so it definitely has a slightly different dynamic when it comes to and clearly has got attention in the past few weeks while the Tour de contests has been on but it is good to be a very important decision you think about the fact that we could be having an election anytime seeing that he looked Lib. Dem's are in the polls. The EH leader in contrast to re Party is actually inheriting a very positive situation where the party has got to whether or not that's pretty Vince cable assets or luck intangibles having the party until about gay sex. Eh Eh we've got the media fakers which is going to be hard before these leaders than what happened Tim Farron and the general election so I think it would be a surprise of Jo. Swinson didn't get it but ultimately do you get the the sense that whatever happens is not going to be as big upset as tomorrow. If Jeremy Hunt Somehow wins James Davey and Jo Swinson do differ in terms of how they get what they want in a hung parliament scenario scenario you say at Davy for instance would vote for Jeremy Corbyn Queen's speech of a hard legislation for a second referendum in it. Jo Swinson is much less clear on that but it's very uneasy about since she doesn't think you can trust Jeremy Corbyn too so the outcome of this contest is really important isn't it. I was very struck by in your writer for a debate that you took part on quizzing the Swinson and Davey on Friday night of this difficulty for the still skull by coach of what they say and also how they position themselves on the one hand they want to say to remain voters. You can't trust Jeremy Corbyn an inch on the other hand they want to try and create this brewed remain alliance and suggests that they'll they'll do whatever they need to do to stop brexit. They're not worried about their own party. I mean but he's going to be attention. I mean one of the things about general election is but even if general elections before breakfast it won't be for solely on Brexit and it'll be a difficult question former Lib dem's which is the Lib Dem's pro remain position is trucks into them a certain kind of middle class prosperous demographic but are probably probably you but not pro all of the taxes that Jeremy Corbyn with I'd like to place on them and how Lib Dem's navigate that question what was going to unconvincing in your blog. You're saying they were saying oh we'd vote for the Queen speed for them. Vote Down the budget. I kind of that way so I think that as a kind of tricky question also fascinating question which is we'll talk a lot on this bogas about Boris Johnson the polls how him getting a poll bounce with affects things I think is also worth noting gene to see whether the Lib Dem's got any kind of bounce service extra not where they're going to get that much but there's extra coverage a Nudie will get because I think if you look at the decline and support Jeremy Corbyn among Labour members if a new more energetically dome and leader you live in homes Po position is maintained. If Labour's can all regularly coming second in the polls because Boris Johnson is brought back some voices from the BREXIT party.

Iran Tried to Block British Tanker in Persian Gulf, U.K. Says
"A fresh military standoff in the Persian Gulf today this one involved Iranian gunboats and a British warship escorting an oil tanker the Iranians attempted to block the passage of the tanker but backed off when confronted by the Royal Navy frigate Iran has threatened to retaliate against U. K. after British marines seized an Iranian tanker off Gibraltar last week that tanker was allegedly smuggling oil to Syria of course the bigger contacts is the US campaign of maximum pressure against Iran the Gulf is a source of twenty percent of the world's oil and growing tensions with Iran could endanger that Ellen walled is an energy consultant and the author of Saudi ink the Arabian kingdoms pursuit of profit and power how unusual is this kind of stand off it's not unheard of and it has happened in the past there was an incident in two thousand fifteen where Ron tried to seize a ship that was carrying certain cargo were certain containers that it it had disputed and then as a result of this the US navy was escorting some tankers through this area so it's not unheard of the question is really how long is this going to go on and what kind of effect is this going to have in the long term on traffic going through the streets because the previous issue the military of course only lasted about a week but if this goes on it could cause some congestion in the area and the other issue is is the expense of having these military vessels escorting the oil tankers there was a tanker war in the Gulf in the nineteen eighties what is the thirty second history of that and how disruptive was that to the world oil markets well it was really disruptive to the world oil markets but it really occurred against the backdrop of a much larger war between Iran and Iraq and that's not really a situation that we're seeing here I don't see a whole lot of parallels in this case other than the fact that the US navy was needed to ensure the security of tankers the world oil market is in a different situation these days than it was in the nineteen eighties but I can see why people are looking to that for parallels though the political and diplomatic and military situation is not really the same at all it is the energy market nervous about the possibility of a confrontation in the Gulf well that's the million dollar question and it seems that the energy market is really not all that reactive to the situation in any other situation we might see just news that Iranian ships even threatened an oil tanker would cause prices to jump but right now the energy market is really very fixated on slowing demand for oil and that's really keeping a lid on prices right now the only thing that's really affecting prices right now we see is demand is the overall economic situation so when we get news that the US and China might resolve their trade dispute that can cause oil to go up but these issues in in the Gulf a really not affecting oil nearly as much as we would expect in a different demand situation Ellen walled energy consultant and the author of Saudi ink thank you very much for

"Lewis was born in Plymouth England to parents who dedicated their lives to helping others. His father was a surgeon in the Royal Navy and his mother worked as a nurse in Queen Alexandra's, Royal Naval nursing service. Lewis learned from young age that the best use of anyone's gifts was to use them in service of others. Family moved to South Africa. When Lewis was ten and that was where he found his true love the water. Lewis hadn't had a real swimming lesson until late in high school, but it didn't take long for him to outpace the other students a month after his first lesson. He slammed four point three miles to robe an island off the coast of Cape down. That's the same island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for many years, and that gave Lewis and idea about what he would attempt next. Well, after he finished his education at least Louis took a break from his dairy nautical trials and went to college studying law at the university of Cape Town before eventually returning to England to practice maritime law. It seemed no matter where he went. He always managed to stay close to the water six years later, though, it was time to dive back in so to speak, but he did not ease into things. Slowly, he swam across the English channel in fourteen and a half hours, and then moved onto colder harsher challenges around the world. And maybe you've noticed but Louis just couldn't sit still he needed to push himself with each swim farther faster longer Lewis, set a number of records along the way becoming the first swimmer to swim around the Cape peninsula. The southern most point of Africa and the Cape of Good Hope the northernmost point in Europe. He even swam the length of the sun you yard the longest of Norway's fjords at one hundred twenty seven miles. It took him twenty one days to do it. Possibly his greatest feat came in and sheathing the holy grail of swimming by completing a long distance swim in all five of the world's oceans four of which were accomplished over. The course of only two years. Lewis was an unstoppable force at his achievements. Gained him a bit of notoriety notoriety that he used to bring awareness to environmental issues all over the world, namely climate change. In fact, many of his record swims since then were done in an effort to bring awareness to the effects of climate change on our oceans seas and glaciers, including one such feats in a glacial lake on Mount Everest to swim in such a frigid environment. Most people would have needed a special wetsuit or quit -ment to regulate their body temperature. But there was something different about Louis, something almost superhuman. A professor from the university of Cape Town Nejd Lewis's body temperature and found something astonishing Lewis could actually increase his core body temperature by two degrees. Just before a swim in cold waters, a phenomenon he called anticipatory Thermo. Genesis no one else on earth has been able to do it. All of this compounded with his long distance swims in all seven seas has cemented Lewis Pugh as an icon of environmental change is activism has sparked actual legislation in the UK as well that will happen in two thousand six when Lewis decided to swim the length of attempts river. Yeah. All two hundred fifteen miles of it all to raise awareness of the growing drought across England as a result of global warming Lewis dove into the water and took off a human torpedo on a mission. But he had just one stop to make. I. Jumped out of the river and took a quick detour to ten Downing Street. The home of the prime minister at the time. Tony Blair, the two had a brief chat before Lewis took his leave back to the frigid Thames to complete his journey. It might have been this herculean trial that convinced the prime minister after all two hundred fifteen miles is a long way to swim to prove point..

"Progresses. The word on every every lip Stacy Schiff. Why London first of all and second of all? What what is essential differences in this lunge forward? Is there an Harrison between the mechanical nineteenth century world? Suddenly automated one in which we find ourselves today. That's a very interesting question. I the thing about these early inventors is that they were their inventions were based on nothing on their hunches intuition sudden flashes of inspiration. Whereas I'm going to use a very well worn phrase contemporary workers in this field are standing on the shoulders of giants. So I think it was tremendously exciting the way that things were being developed in Victorian London because no one had seen anything like it before. I mean to give you an example to go back to this other unsung hero fellow who was involved off enough with Brahma in making locks fellow called Henry Mawdsley Mawdsley, very few people. Remember him today? But he was fascinated. By the idea of industrial production. How you could make lots of things inexpensively and all the same and this had tremendously important ramifications. What he was very interested. In in the beginning of the nineteenth century was the Royal Navy shipping because the Royal Navy ships at the time were sailing ships and to hoist the sales to pull up an anchor, you needed pulley blocks, those things you probably remember from school usually made it would with sheaves wheels inside them, which would give you great mechanical advantage. So that one person could lift something weighing many tons. They were made of Elmwood, and they were made by hand hundreds of carpenters all of southern England. The navy needed about one hundred and fifty thousand a year. So he went to the navy and said okay to turn an elm tree into a pulley block. How many steps does that take and they looked fake carefully you cut the tree into chokes? You smooth it into the approximate shape you sham for it, you bore holes in it. Go and goes on. Forty-three? They said he said, okay. Well, I will make forty-three machines each one will do one discreet part of the manufacturer of a pulley block. And they gave him a factory in Portsmouth about sixty miles south of London. And he built these machines and sure enough you would feed elm trees into a hopper. One end of the factory and out at the other end would come fully fashioned, pulley blocks, salmon Winchester, overnight, all of these hundreds of conferences all over southern England lost their jobs, and the only people that maintained his factory with.

So it's got a catapult bar and that last but not least if you remember a is air force, e is carrier, which is the navy that leaves the b. which is the Marine One in the Royal airforce one as well as the Italian Air Force One. And that is the vertical takeoff and landing. It has the Rolls Royce -ducted fan besides the besides the rotate -able ninety degree engine and it was it was a good week for the thirty five. But there was also some bad news. The good news was the f, thirty five b. So I I con bat with the United States Marine corps in Afghanistan. The other thing was the Royal Navy has parked their brand new carrier, the Queen Elizabeth off of the Costa Pax river. Now, Pax river has a giant ski jump so that people. Learn how to fly the aircraft off to ski jump, which is a way of getting the aircraft airborne quicker. It's used by the was used by the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force on their last, the invincible class carriers, as well as Queen. Elizabeth now has a ski jump ramp, and the Royal Navy has been training on their f thirty five Bs at Pax river, as well as down in cherry point where they're learning how to operate the Stovall short takeoff vertical landing version of the aircraft. The unfortunate news though, besides the good news about the Royal Navy, landing a aircraft on the aircraft carrier in the attacks. Ghanistan was unfortunately for the first time in seventeen years of operation. It's hard to believe that we've been talking about thirty five for seventeen years, but we had a Marine Corps. Four aircraft. It went down on Friday, and luckily the Marine Corps pilot who was operating the aircraft did successfully checked out and was high enough that each elected with little to no injuries. So the squadron was long to VM f. t. five, oh one, they're the responsible for training the marines on the thirty five beat as well as the Royal Navy pilot. So unfortunately, not a great day, a good week for the thirty five up until the catastrophic failure, but one aircraft in seventeen years of testing operations, etc. Is not a bad record if you look over time so, but we'll see what the ramifications of what the causes were and whether it was pilot error or there was a catastrophic failure with the aircraft. Okay. For generally accidents, I'm always looking at the trend lines, not how many aircraft crash, but you know what is the the rate at which they're crashing. That's sometimes hard to calculate because you have to know how many total hours were were flown. And the good news is the the actual rate is been trending down. So we're now actually below one fatal accident per one hundred thousand hours flown in generally VA Shen now, surprised to see at the end of this Washington Post article, a reference to the military times which apparently found that mishaps are actually been rising. Steeply tells about that. I can give you a five letter answer, and, oh, n. e. y. I knew it. I was guessing that was it. It wasn't that long ago we had sequestration. There's quite a few things go. Going on with military operations. One is there is a revved up cycle now of going into deployment because we have eliminated a lot of aircraft and a lot of personnel to the cuts. So we've got a ramped up amount of aircraft going into combat doing preps, but not enough really training for deployments. So you end up getting a negative repercussion guess would be the best way to describe it? We do have a pilot shortage in the military just like we do in general aviation and airline ING airliners, and they are trying to work them up quicker to get them deployed because there's a very high attrition rate in with all of those factors and money for spares and money for parts. For example, the Marine Corps, their f. eighteens they have gone out to the bone. Yard, and we're have been stripping aircraft from the bone yard Davis Monthan to keep their active duty aircraft flying. So all of those factors are involved. There's been a delay in with the thirty five being deployed. There's been a delay, so we're flying aircraft longer than they were supposed to be you were..

"You're listening to the monocle daily with me, Andrew, an ancient military truism attributed to Napoleon and door. Frederick the great holds. There's an army marches on its stomach, and indeed anyone who has spent time around soldiers will know that little has such an effect on morale for good or for ill as the quality of the visuals. But someone has to cook it and modern militaries are having trouble funding people to do this. When most people consider a career in the military imagined peeling potatoes. Only if they've annoyed the sergeant major in particular, the Royal Navy is struggling to recruit seagoing shifts. And unlike any other eatery can't fill their kitchens with non-citizens on joined with more on this by Elizabeth bro nonresident fellow at the Royal United Services institute. Elizabeth tempting though it is defined this vaguely, amusing, this is actually quite serious, isn't it? Yes, it is. And so, yes, if you're right when you say, oh, the Royal Navy doesn't have enough ships is sounds a little bit silly, but really it's it's a crucial issue because especially if you think about the new aircraft carriers, if you you can't go on without having enough food to feed these sailors on that ship, and we're talking about hundreds or even sounds of people. And so we don't ship those aircraft carriers and other vessels are going nowhere. So rowboat Sion's does say, for example, the Royal Navy have ten. They just offer immense signing on bonuses, increase wages for military shifts, or is it worth exploring the idea of being able to high on non-citizens. All of the about. So they already have a bonus scheme. But I think what really needs to happen is that armed forces need to become no Ness centers of educational expense, not for soldiering, but for these, what you might call support services as well. So if if you have culinary Lena's, you should think of the Royal Navy or the British army as a place where he wants to go. And if that happens, then they, they won't have any shortage of of potential ships. And in fact, is bagel to keep them longer. Now, if you think back to the past, they did have a foreigners in particular positions on ship. So you may be familiar with the Chinese laundry? Well, it was actually Chinese men who did the laundry for the Royal Navy for a very long time. And so high hiring foreigners may be an option. But I think there are plenty of of Brits who would be interested in a in the super duper Kuna. Inari career if the navy or the army or the air force often, it mean is this a problem across military's in the developed world in general that they know? I mean the having issues with recruitment anyway, but obviously, when people think of a career in the military, they think of joining because they wanted traditional military role. They want to be, you know, you know, a combat soldier or report or a Usseileh. They don't necessarily think in terms of the support jobs. That's exactly right. But also happening is that more and more people are moving towards what you might call academic career, so creates a require university degree. And so the hospitality industry in general, essentially have to look very hard to to find shifts if for the villain sectors. So imagine the problems are there on forcing safe because they can only a thing of moment can only recruit nationals of their own country and so it it is the problem. But I think. And it's something. Every developed country faces because we all have been told that we should go to university and consider careers in those areas rather than what's what does what are known as as perhaps less attractive for positions. And but I think it there are lots of people with us in this case, culinary interest and what it's the Royal Navy and the Royal airforce and the British army really became known as the places where you could get that education by the way for free. Unlike most other institutions, they would really be able to attract a lot of talented people Bris, especially of course. But if they wanted to hire EU nationals, even off the breakfast that would be an attractive destination for them as well. Elizabeth throw affects as always for joining us..

An in, fact that remains true if you if you, look at the characteristics of captain how you could apply them and today and have any midshipmen at the naval academy Look at these and and learn from them The constitution, was a big frigate was forty four guns and the British captain was a guy named decors who was Every bit as able as as is, a cow, his ship was smaller it was a thirty eight gun frigate It was staffed within the constitution which gave him a slight edge and as a two captains came together the two, ships Geico's was supremely, confident of victory because he like. All his colleagues and like the entire government in London English governments in London head contempt for the American. Navy say if someone had told them at the time that is a. Call was leading sailor. In the world they would have left So this is overconfident And how simply. Those right after him And decors does not use his speed to try to offset, the greater firepower of the constitution again because he's so confident the two ships came together very quickly and how in a very short time Completely destroyed him and the reason he destroyed him was because The American gunners in the American. Ship in its entirety was much better than the English ship it was astonishing today. Cours that this was, happening to him in happening so quickly so in a way what we're seeing here is the Royal Navy has sold itself. An allusion that it can defeat anything even when it's outgun the constitution has twenty four pounders and decors allows them to. Rake it with what you write is double shotted brave shot and he still thinks he's. Going to be superior though. He approaches with, the. Weather gage he, takes no advantage whatsoever he's that cocky exactly. And so he he pays the price and What's. He is his. Entire ship is dismasted it's, rolling? In the in the c- completely. Helpless how does everything you can to get all. The English sailors off the ship he's afraid it will sink and he gets he gets he gets them all off in and then the Gary just simply. Blew up now that moment when it arrives back in London is unbelievable to the. Royal Navy is a, disgrace felt by every captain every midshipman every Lieutenant for about one hundred years I mean this never leaves their imagination that. Moment though it's not the first victory of the Americans I believe the Essex was the earlier victory that's right five days. Earlier the Essex had a victory right right with David. Farragut on board I mean the. The lovely thing about your. Story George is, how. Many future American, heroes and generals and presidents Are involved in the junior ranks during, this war that's right it's now we go to the larger frame? How did we get into this because these. Captains approaching themselves as if they're members of the. Round table are in fact the products of a political polit a political canvas? That is still at odds with the revolutionary, war thirty years before James Madison is the. President he's a very smart man in fact. Bookish beyond belief he's a permanent life friend with Thomas Jefferson the two of them are principals in the revolutionary war and the construction of the constitution but Madison's idea of. Being president, is to sorta is to. Be a, commander. In chief the principal complaint is something called. Orders of council in which the British for. The last. Ten years have. Been stealing Americans from a, stealing? So-called a British sailors from American. Ships and just ignoring the Americans in general did. That drive Madison or was that a reason he used for Leverage George oh definitely the the. The two immediate issues that that Madison was so concerned about actually three what were the. Two of them were maritime issues one was the autism as you mentioned in which the British actually tried to control our trade with Europe we would allow just neutral carrier we had a huge business in the British, tried to simply control it is if we were still calling me And the second, issue was impressment they simply took our our men off of our merchant ships whenever they felt like it. And forced them into the into into the served, in the Royal Navy in Madison simply. Could not abide this if we were. If we were an independent country we couldn't stand. It and we we tried he tried over many years, to get the English to stop it and at a certain point he decided that that he. Had to threaten them with more in order, to get them to. Stop, it. And when, they still would not take him seriously he felt the TB just could. Not he just could not take any further this? Is the spring of eighteen twelve the twelfth congress is in session and when we come back mister Madison's, war chiefly as it begins in. The first two years is understood as a land war.
