"I think pretty well we will There might be one or two exceptions. I in terms of changes to the package on the nineteenth. So i think i yeah second probably a while what about you saleh i think yes and yes i actually think and the reason i say yes on social care because this is not a new subject for such it so when he was community secretary pull you might recall this. He worked very closely with jeremy hunter. At the time was health secretary to work on the social capri set then came in on council tax bill so this is not a new subject to him and i think once he gets the bit between his teeth on there. So i think if desert deadlines at the end of the year i think he'll get there though we all. Well we'll bring you both back at christmas and find out at salve michelle former supposed adviser to saudi jaffe. Paul harrison former special adviser at the department health under jimmy. Hart thanks very much talking sort of the politics and exactly what the politicians the political calculations such go into in just a moment. We'll speak to a couple of health. Think tanks to see what they'd like to see some of the nuts and bolts of policy so we continue our deep dive into what exactly faces such as javanese. Enjoy this morning right. Let's take a look now. Couple of health think tanks. He's been all time thinking about this stuff. And i suspect they're working to form part of scientists averaging this morning let's speak to nigel edwards. The chief executive of the nuffield trust niger. We've also got senior fellow at the king's fund think-tank. Hi helen so knowledgeable. If this one is knowledge all i've got to hold onto stuff. There's a whole stuff for me to read on the death. let's just cut to the chase. What do i need to sort out. What were the first thing you said you'll be seeing is to deal with the the continuing problem with kobe. But we're also seeing at the moment most extremely spike in demand across the whole nhs which shipped to represent some quite significant changes in in how people using it which which then to the bumps up against the fact that we ve very tired. workforce a some of which of course if had covered themselves in the suffering the consequences of that and of course we went into the pandemic with very significant vacancies across nursing medicine in a number of other key key areas So when you take all of that together. The i think the level of pressure which is very concerning. He's got deliver the hospital a new hospitals. Unfortunately it's framed right now as you were talking just earlier. He's got a to imply to develop a plan for social. Character does appeal one. That prime minister said was ready. wasn't sure and this coosa is substantial piece of legislation is going to parliament within a few weeks time so this is a long list and there's a spending review comey later in the year. So he's got quite a big to do list here of which bitter which is extremely demanding Some of the basic work to underpin any is not yet been. Donald released completely and some of them are very intractable in particular. The workforce problems. Same question to you. Really what would be your advice. Decided java is it to spend a lot of time leading into everything will just make some big just make some big decisions now because the one thing worse than making the decisions just delaying decisions you know as we've seen time and time again on things like social cabinet is is sort of window of opportunity here. The could have a big bold impact but he needs to sort of get on with it. Yeah well i mean that's such an interesting question i mean alongside the things. That nigel's already outlined a. I mean i guess i would say that and such. I mean he's gone absolutely huge Most difficult in trade any secretary of state health official ever had to face Joke they'll be really very little time. If any claim to catch his breath taking just happened over the weekend he's going to need to ground running absolutely anytime other things. In addition to what nigel mention does you know. There's obviously tackling the backlog of their operations in treatment that they'll top during the pandemic and then there's also very importantly he's going to need to decide of cetinje how they have influenced by the who should replace the current chief executives. Nhs's in-instead simon stevens. He's actually g to step down at the end of next month and this is such a critical role that the secretary of state is going to want to think really carefully about which of the candidates is best able to lead the service at such a challenging time but in terms of your question about you know Whether he needs to just make decisions now or wait and look at the detail. I think it depends on the issue will so how much he kind of trust the work that The previous secretary of state health sexual hancock already done but for example with the legislation. He might want to take some time to read that because looking at what happened with a lengthly reforms. Back in twenty twelve. And how they post repugnant they. They had a very difficult time. And i think it's wise respect shifts to kind of review the detail also legislation I'm but i don't think like social care. i mean we've had. We've had numerous commitments from discouragement. I'm previous governments. That they're going to address social. I think we know what the options offer reforming ecs. He just needs to put a plan to do that. I don't beat us. Any reason to reading. Wait is one of those things the it gets. It's been delayed for so long and endlessly discussed essentially. Everyone knows what needs to happen with social care that it's going to cost a lot of money and to some extent it matters less. Who's gonna sit. Who's sitting in the department of health and more who's sitting in the treasury the quantity. Now we have someone sitting in the vault health who's pleased sat in the treasury. So does that philly with confidence that he'll find a way to know. Get the fis the money out of the treasury or is this a treasury management of health. Who will think that there's a way of doing this on the cheap or kicking it into the longer. That is such an interesting question. I think you know. We're yet to know. But i think you know on the plus side as you say he'd be well versed in detail of social care as the issue of funding came up when he was chancellor and say was previously the department the communities local government. But you know in terms of what his attitude to funding is going to be Obviously he was transfer at the treasury when he kept finding sutton for the nhl slope even as damone services rising.

"What is that. He's been going on in said office Buck the and the justice actually saying he says you won't office swept for cameras. The only one of these questions forty morning seems although looking at matt handcocks office photos. It just pay these pretty obvious cameras in there. First question really Libya's should be cameras administers office. I don't don't see why not really as long as there's no audio that stuff can get our as long as they can't see documents and so on i gather it's habitual for their not to be cameras. I don't know why that camera was left there. This is a bit of a mystery. But you'd think you'd think a grown man would know that if a camera existed and was visible. It was the wrong place to kiss people. Go kiss somewhere else. I was talking to somebody in the village. Today was sort of saying. Don't know why would you kiss anyone in an office. Why don't you go into the woods or somewhere. I it's view it's a view. What's in whitehall i. The problem with the camera is it didn't seem to have been transparently. Shit was there. So i think it's okay to have cameras so as people know that what was strange about this one is it seems to have been placed. Surreptitiously was secret. That's what's very peculiar it. So that's why ministers announced a turtle panic now going round trend with dave feet secretly filmed will this time. Yup i suppose it. It seems as if labour party's responsible of this sort of got off in several directions are on the one they're calling for an investigations into into what's going on with camera is if this sort of concerned about these invasions matt handles policy. While on the other hand also going after him on the clonee ism and the fact that he was his mistress colder. He caught on the books of what came first. Did she job. I did you get the kiss. I also whole argument about now is is private gene council. What's going on in the. Which was the sunday times yesterday. And yet this one of these sort of maybe. It's just such a massive story. Opposition is is essentially relevant in it. But do you think that the labor party for them to be making more high this they just keeping out of it. I think they should make hay out of it. Because i mean it's a horrible thing. I mean apart from being a massive personal betrayal of to spouses and six children both sides. It's a massive betrayal of all the people who kept the rules in somebody put up yesterday next to the picture of his embrace. A picture of the queen's sitting all alone to husband's funeral and the queen alone that funerals a sort of symbol of all the people who have not been able to be near their dying partners or children or newborn grandchildren in a. There's been a massive obedience and the idea that this is all just kind of shrugged off By somebody in power because he can. I think i think that really really matters. And if i live party would be. I would be working on that that breach of rules and so and of course the other technical breach the personal. Email account is disastrous. That should be a second offense anyway. it. It's really hard to see. Why boris johnson thought. He could hang onto him. He just didn't want to throw a bone to comings and throw a bone to the press. He didn't want to lose those battles but he should have moved faster. The is disastrous. Probably the most powerful because some of the government is not come from the opposition at all from trevor phillips stable color on the times cody presenting we on sunday on scully's. Let's take a listen. The pictures that we saw were of an encounter on may the six on may the eleventh barrett bury my daughter who died of covid but during the lockdown three hundred of our family and friends turned up online but most of them were not allowed to be at the graveside even though it was in the open air holds of the rule of thirty because of the instruction by mr and coke. Now the next time one of you tells me what to do in my private life. Explain to me why. I shouldn't just tell you where to get off. Trevor phillips on sky news yesterday. And i have to say brandon lewis is sponsored pretty feeble a single exchange there trevor it basically summing up why so many people have angered exactly. It's heartbreaking let's exchanges in it and you could feel his anger as well as his seora Understandably the problem for the government for boris johnson. In all of this is it. Is that his lippi said of the perception of one rule for them another role for the rest of us or as one of the prime minister's closest allies ahead said Rules of little people. And once you start behaving light that the the thing about boris johnson is people they they know he's a rogue but they think he's a roku is on their side but as soon as you start behaving as if you're above the rules and you can behave different each other people then then that that starts to evaporate and that is very fragile that support for him and so i think that is a very dangerous perception to grow And in terms of the opposition. That's what they need to seize on. It's not the sort of personal Life side of this. It's the hypocrisy and the rules of little people impression caused by the whole thing and that at she applies whether it's too pretty patel not being sacked bullying or the business about the g account or this sort of Lobbying the sense that rules don't apply to those empower the same way. They do to those who want power and libya on our colleague paul before but all these things don't matter until they suddenly do wall matter the sort of yourself. Each individual case doesn't necessarily damage the toys poll writings whatever it might be but you sort of reach a tipping point that you know the the the damn busts and other mixed metals. Yeah i mean if we'd known about the separate account before. I would just have raised eyebrows but i think the massive the massive breach of the covert rules allied to the personal thing. I think it's a mistake always to say private life is private private. Life doesn't matter. I think people do perceive these massive betrayals as quite important you know when we are told apparently authorities that his wife had no idea and thought it was a stable marriage then he had to go home and wake up his eight year old child to tell him that he was off. I mean that. That does matter to voters. I mean maybe some people think he doesn't. Let's be more french but actually it does matter and so the whole thing starts to matter and you just think this is altogether a bit of a scumbag. Go the other thing is what is is your private business would would would work. Were it not for the fact. The government has been interfering. Our private lives of the past fifteen months. That's that's the whole point. Sunny out in life was the government's business. Anyway let's let's move on and talk about your call them because it's probably the only so much we can talk about matt hancock. Let's talk about your collins as libby and shows the pain behind the plow. You've you ford. In love with jeremy clarkson not not quite enough to be none none none of none of that groping that we're used to seeing on the video but the point is i love and revere experts in everything from brain surgery to ditch digging. I i love to see people really are on top of the job but you very rarely get a sense of how difficult and patient it was during the long learning period and all the disappointments in it. Because people say oh. It's my job. I've always done it. And so it's always useful to see people learning to do things and being shown up for not knowing and this has taught us about complications of farming. Or whatever in this case you know just as my husband's farming column did years ago in a much less away in the times and so they used to be shows like that like in at the deep end where there was a big television budget and reporters could learn over months.

"And make a difference, that's what I came into politics. Of course, I would think about that. The one big thing I think I'd end where we. We started, it's this crisis. The set of changes are profound beyond just health and the economy is going to change. International relationships will already seeing that vis-a-vis China and other countries. If there's one other thing I can mention it very quickly as the also started during a senior fellow at the Harvard. Kennedy school that's around crisis planning, and it is one big thing we can learn about this crisis is going to. To be how this type of crisis which is the progressive crisis is continuing even six months after I started learning new things about amateur respond to that is very different to the kinds of crises I think that in advanced countries that have been typically plan for. Because when you plan for cyber attack, a terrorist attack, these a one off single events that happened respond whereas I think this pandemic would shown. Shown is that this is not a one off. Single event is sort of happens and it continues and it keeps changing.

Now George Floyd's death of course is a wakeup call for the world as we've seen, but for Black Americans is the latest chapter in a long history of violence that we've been discussing and oppression and Michael, Eric Dyson is a professor of sociology at Georgetown University, who's written extensively about race relations in two thousand seventeen.

John Thanks Michael for joining us and I WANNA. Ask perhaps our initial shock. has subsided from seeing the video and seeing the response to it, and as we go through different stages of grief. I kind of wonder whether this time it sticks. I want to start by sharing this image that I saw on twitter the other day, and it's this young woman who's holding a sign that says George Floyd isn't a wakeup call. The same alarm has been ringing since sixteen nineteen y'all just kit. Keep hitting snooze. There's no question that they are two different universes of perception rotating around different axes of facts, truths and insight. On the one hand is African. American people other people of Color, as well indigenous folks who have had an experience where they have been as Malcolm X. used to say the victims of democracy according to Berov play right we in. Plymouth Rock Plymouth. Rock landed on us, so there have been people of color there have been black people have been brown red yellow people there have been people in this country, but especially now black people who have been the victims of Slavery Jim, Crow White Supremacy, social injustice, economic inequality, the refusal to acknowledge our humanity, the dehumanisation routinely of the police for centuries. And the police at least for a century or more, and so now bent. The George Floyd incident has occurred. It has indeed awakened so many other elements of the of the of another world that is the other world. The white people who have been privileged than they're oblivious.

"Connect the dots between this white. Apology, moment And the reality in the very boardrooms and executive Swedes, and elsewhere where different a difference could be made. I appreciate that we have black lives matter banners that that a lot of in the industry, especially in our industry have come forward to to make statements, but for me. The real statement is black lives matter in an actionable way I keep using that word actionable, because it's important, so the hiring of black creatives whether it's black writers directors. DP's editors putting money where your mouth is, and and actually doing something to. To lift the creatives who work in the industry for instance for riders, only four point, seven percent of writers in the industry are black, and the has been a trend for quite a while, so there's an opportunity here to not just use the black lives matter banner to draw viewers, but to actually make a difference and make a difference in the lives of of black create in whether or not they're working and this is. This this is across many industries. It's not it's not just the TV and film. So I wanted to ask you also Charles Blow of the New York Times wrote a very powerful column that really struck me. He was talking about the the liberal Americans, the white seven hundred also back in the sixties who went down south in the freedom summer, as it was called to help against desegregation for civil rights and all the rest of it, but he said in his column. Don't fail us again. Because obviously, it didn't work quite as well when the when the issue was in the north and whites had to. Share their privileged, so he says now we must make sure make a statement that this now is a true change in the American ideology and not an activist chic. Some Street Festival for people who've been cooped up for months. This is not the social justice coachella. This is not systemic racism woodstock. Comment on that and where you think. Whites in America needs to be to make sure that this moves forward. I first Christian, and then then we'll go to Matadi. I think the most powerful statement was made by. Is that the IT founder who's married to Serena Williams? Who? Resigned from his position and insisted that whoever was was chosen for the board to replace him should be a person of color. That's a really powerful statement. And I think that's the kind of thing we have to start addressing. I was having this conversation with my own employer. Earlier were on like a know. It's great that we WANNA do things, but we gotta do practical things because you know what I've worked at this company for twenty years in all the time. You have hired one black man in our medical sciences. Division One in twenty years, and so you know this is something we have to tackle on A. Nuts and bolts ground level. It's not enough as Charles blow says there have diversity woodstock. And Melody finally you know. It's always the case right when there's equality, the privileged look at it as oppression because they're going to have to. They're going to have to share. Do you think this is a moment where the privilege? We'll. We'll share and whether that struggle for equality will actually remain strong when it appears, and it will have to be some will have to give some of their privilege way in order to level the playing field.

"This individual Ritchie not given his meteoric rise. Indeed and Chris when we look at the number ten eleven relations. I'm sure you've often through many prime ministers in Chancellor's this is a story that goes on and on what's your view on the future of the treasury's independence because Sanjay Javid warn prime minister about this in his resignation letter to the Treasury still maintain. Its all powerful position. Whitehall or is this a very serious power grab by tenant? Is it practical as well to have the economy run out of Downing Street by Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings whereas certainly not practical in the long term and the short certainly makes the treasury of much much weaker institution? It was already quite weak unto such avid because he was seen as a relatively weak chops up so for the next few months. It certainly GONNA be weak. GonNa think they policies entirely made in number ten? And at some time this gonNA cause some problems because fundamental differences between what number does Number Eleven does number eleven has to keep control of the finances so obviously often has a role in saying no to things and number ten of them will say well. We'll be that create ideas and get things going so there is a creative tension then it often works best when it is sometimes a little bit antagonistic. But one of the real problems about running everything out of number ten and as Miranda says having sort of a court structure where everyone has to cheerlead and repeat what the Prime Minister saying is. This is just group thing. This is exactly the problems that we got into which caused the financial crisis. If you're not allowed to express the sense if you're not allowed to say well hang on a second. Maybe this looks fine for now but in five years time it might not look quite so rosy then dot creating a problem immediately exactly will always creates the problems in the long run. Yeah I totally agree with that. If you take a powerful institution not the treasury from the equation you open the floodgates for all manner of crazy ideas and the number tender always coming up with ways to spend money and you rely on the treasuring someone in the Treasury to put the brakes on it and just say. Hang on their other priorities here. One of the thing I would just take issue with some people have been saying. Oh well he's just lost one chance or he can't possibly afford to lose another one therefore soon. It will be a strong chancellor. Well we're playing by different rules here. I don't see why anyone thinks that. If she seen that starts to cause trouble for number ten or becomes too powerful becomes a potential successor to Boris Johnson. He won't be taken out with the nieces. Well and on the talk of people being takeout this. Where does this leave Sandra Jaffe? Now that two days ago he was one of the most powerful people in government and now he's just a backbench. Mp It doesn't feel as if he's going to become a real threat to voice Johnson anyway because first of all. This is still Boris. Johnson's party he's still got by eighty seat. Majority and on a personal level. We still think that bones and sandwich avid are on good terms that this was about an operational thing. They haven't necessarily fallen out personally. So it's going to be quite. Qc what he does now. Yeah it'd be very interesting actually to watch. When he speaks up. An iffy speaks up so one of the things that the reshuffle has done is to remove anyone in the cabinet who might speak up about the dangers of the WTO Brexit at the end of the year for example. If it looks like that's a danger again would subject. Javid make about from the back benches we yet to find out. He's been very measured in what he said so far. But I want to say one thing. We are stunned by this eighty seat. Majority because we've become so used to hung parliaments or timeline e wafer-thin majorities in recent years. It isn't so big to completely protect. Boris Johnson wants his honeymoon. Period is over and then having powerful.

"sajid javid" Discussed on FT Politics

"Cabinet reshuffle will be digging into the dramatic departure of chanceless Sergey. Javid the rapid rise of Reshi. Suna what it means for the upcoming budget and the UK's finances is also many more major changes to key Whitehall departments of firemen business international development on the Attorney General's office who expanding all new appointments. And what this means for where the prime minister is heading to do this. I'm delighted to be joined by our political editor. George Parker deputy head to Miranda Green an economics editor Chris chows. Thank you all for joining if you find yourself likeness episode of politics. Then you should subscribe the award as usual channels and you can also leave us a nice review while you're at Thursday's cabinet. Lisa for was billed as a muted affair down issue was actively telling journalists will only be moderate changes with a couple of specific departments facing new ministers but that plant blew up in their faces. When Sante Javid abruptly resigned? The chanceless spent seventy five minutes talking to the prime minister on Thursday morning but he refused an ultimatum to sack all of his advisors and essentially allow number ten to land a power grab with the Treasury in his place. The thirty nine year old vichy soon has stepped up but with a budget. Ju Just in three weeks. There are big questions now about the future of the Treasury and the UK's Finances to George Parker what story. It's been this week that we knew this was coming. Ever since. Boys Johnson was not majority in December's election. There were no real changes. When he formed his government in January this was originally built as a big effect that it was billed as a small affair and then surprisingly it became a big factor again. Yeah I think the intention the night before the show was indifferent. Speed of what they call them. Moderate changing the God in the government's moving around people that most ordinary citizens will never have heard of at the top table. But as you say the things went off the rails at around about ten thirty such Javid was confronted with is made him accept my terms for staying on the job which is basically suckle of your advisers and we have a new economic unit spanning number ten in number eleven Downing Street in other words number. Ten micromanaging everything. The Treasury does or you go and he was in that room in our post. Johnson had a choice between saving his chancellor or basic losing his chief advisor Dominic. Cummings whose idea this was an in the end. He went for his adviser. And it's a big big moment because it's the moment where number ten does assert its authority over the treasury and as such avid himself said no self-respecting minister could ever accepted the terms he was being offered. I think just one would say is. There's some speculation was always number. Tends intention that such would walk and I don't think that was the case. I mean if you think about the sequence of events this week. Such jewelry was put out on the airwaves earlier in the week to sell the government's new infrastructure program basically. Boris Johnson thought that such a Java would roll over and take it and carry on as a lame-duck Chancellor and that causes something he wasn't perpetual. Except and at that we know that one subject Jaffe said he wouldn't accept these terms to senior people from Downing Street Eddie listed. Who's a senior adviser boys? Johnson took him look. Don't do this and they tried to canoe out of it. So despite somebody will claim there's a grand plan here. I agree with you George. That wasn't mechanically legislative. Stand back for a moment and explain why this came to a head here because first of all spots have this kind of old role in Westminster they all the people who advise ministers. They direct them what to do and they protect them politically as well because the civil service can't do that in the UK suspects have very important. Vote within these departments but over the past couple of weeks we've seen these big clashes between the spot team in the Matan lead of correspond dominic. Cummings his chief advisor and Shanti Javed's spat team and has been all these briefings back and forth. It's been getting pretty nasty. Well as you say they have a particular in quite odd role special advisers and they are essentially the creature of that particular individual minister so when they lose the job in a reshuffle for example. The minister staff sponsor out of the job as well. And there's always been that tension there when things go wrong between the central machine of a government and cabinet ministers who slightly plowing their own Farro and clearly. It went very wrong here. Dominant Cummings had already marched one of Sanjay job. It's previous advises out very dramatically. So they'd been tensions about that. It seemed to come down to a matter of Ceuta personal dignity for such a Javid. I mean he gave quote saying no self respecting minister would accept these terms so whether they intended him to really go not they were asking him to accept this humiliation which I think speaks volumes about the sort of operation. They're running. It's very interesting. This idea of the number ten in number eleven operations together. There are clearly upsides for any government in terms of coherence of message in terms of not having public briefing wars as has been going on for the last two or three weeks. But it could also be downsides because spats all supposed to be specialists on the supposed to be experts and as you said as well as to be intelligence gathering for them minister if you create a sort of one stop shop in Downing Street you might gain posted from that in the short term. I worry slightly. And people like Jill Rutta who knows a lot about how white whole works has been saying as well you might be slightly downgrading the expertise and you're also definitely downgrading the ability for dissenting debate. Where you haven't yet arrived at the best solution to the particular problem and these are large scale important problems about the future of the economy and we saw such avid actually warned about that in his letter saying that the institution of the Treasury must be protected. Chris I'M GONNA come to your Mr Javelin a moment but first George. A lot of this has been billed as dominic. Cummings is plan here. And we're not over vacant because it was the prime minister who put this automated to Sidon Avidan. We don't think Mister Cummings was actually even in the room when this happened. But why do you think he's so obsessed with spats because these advisers is probably what I guess no more than a hundred of them across Whitehall and ever since he went into downing shoot he's had these weekly sparred meetings where he's being quite rude to them and has sort of said my way or the highway is being questioned spot? Pay Why does he see them as so important? Well basically he controls them and Dominic Cummings wants to have control and also he sees them as his transmission mechanism so the way in which he operates control from the sensor and then he disseminates the instructions out through the network of whites all with people. He can fire if they don't do what he says. So I think that's essentially why he so interested in this one of the interesting things I find about the whole episode. Is that Dominic? Cummings now is trying to exert total control from number ten which is inevitably as managers alluding to going to demoralize demotivates and we can individual government departments when you think Dominic Cummings made his name initially as an adviser. Michael go for the very effective activist department of Education. I remember him telling me making a point. He never told David Cameron Number Ten. What he was doing so they. You had an example of where a motivated energized. Well run government's pumping could actually effect change and yet dominant coming from the centers. Now trying to close down that kind of initiative but that makes him sort of Porta game. Yes doesn't it sequoias? Let's look at Sanjay Javid now because he's been charged with a very short space of time. He's the first chancellor in McLeod in Nineteen seventy-two not live a budget and that was because he died ten days into the job and it's the first chancellor to resign. They policy clash with the prime minister since Nigel Lawson in the early nineteen nineties so he doesn't really have a huge amount of legacy as chancellor when you look what he did or didn't do in the job though. He has pretty much no legacy because all the decisions were essentially postponed. The budget in November was postponed. The budget now coming up hasn't been delivered and so he's really not done very much. He's pointed new banking governor and You Bailey. So that's the main actual policy. He's done and he has got into the Manifesto. The fiscal rules that are supposed to apply for the whole of this parliament. Although we don't know whether they will with the voice Johnson will now ditch these schools in the manifesto before they have been implemented. Because I'm not in law in any way yet so that's one very big question but in terms of economic legacy really there is very little for such it and when we look at this question the Bank of England governor of people that I spoke to in the Treasury on Thursday was saying that that had actually been one of the main fiction points between number ten and number eleven it was very well known in the Treasury. The number ten wanted Andy Haldane at particular Dominic Cummings wanted how aim to be the governor of Sanjay Javid months outmaneuver him and getting his choice of Andrew. Bailey is there any chance that could change now? Always the process already too far gone. No it's gone now. It's done because it's a crown appointments and it's gone to the crown is not something that the Treasury Select Committee which has a pre commencement. Haring coming up. Probably we don't know yet but probably in early March. They don't actually have a power of veto grit. So it's a decision that's done and dusted so it will be Andrew Bailey. He's there for eight years messy decides to leave early. He has significant independence. And I gotta say that. I don't find the Andy. How Day stories that have been around on? No people saying this. I don't find it massively. Credible he was really absolutely going to be a serious candidate because he didn't meet the criteria that were very well laid out which was the way that the Treasury ad others in government said. She rejected other candidates like late. Marcy like Gerald Lions full not being suitable because they didn't meet the criteria and Andy. How for example hasn't run a large financial institution which was part of their written down criteria? So it would be quite hot stove. Appointed him plus would have meant that he would have leapfrogged over all the deputy companies in the bank which would have created personal problems. I think within threadneedle street itself and George the other source of tension which is where the conversation is really GonNa go next is about the upcoming budget because when we go back to the Tory general election campaign Dominic Cummings wanted to base. Open the spending taps in his political argument was that Labor is gone. So far to the left we can on an almost centre-left fiscal platform and still be credible and still get away with it. Because of the amount of money and taxation lay under Jeremy Corbyn was doing but that was a debate within the party over that and Santi Javan Isaac Lovato who ran the Tory campaign. Day Will Vamos say we've got fiscal credit but we've got to stick to Bouli Center economics. That debate was one. But now question with Richie. Soon in place is now gonNA change of. What does this mean for the budget in three weeks? Well there was a meeting number ten before the election intervened were coming a whiteboard out news basically telling such how he wanted a spending review. They opened the spending taps budget where they cut loads of taxes. So mild other fiscal discipline is high on dominic. Cummings list of priorities so I think you know. The markets react to suspecting that the fiscal rules Chris was just talking about. There will be loosened budget and I think there are probably right about that. I think there's an interesting question about whether they taxes up on higher earners I think it'd be more nuance the difference between number ten and number eleven on that I think both sides of a bit of nervousness about that benevolence. I think the fiscal rule book will be relaxed. And as far as Richie CENEX concern me. I think he's cut from very much the same cloth as regards as a mentor. They both come. From the world of international finance racine at Goldman Sachs such Deutsche Bank the both regarded as inside the Treasury's fiscal conservatives but nevertheless as we've just been discussing Knock frankly isn't GonNa be rushing this budget. Well this is the question now. Maranda is that as George and I vote. I think it was last week. There was this nickname for such Javad. Which was the Chino? The chancellor name only with an amsoil no because Sanjay Javid would say no to everything when you look Vichy Soon. Act Now going in that you do have to one day. How much independence. He's going to have a nice song. People already joking. That we've gone from the Chino to the baby. Chino what do you make of that position? And because the two albums you can say yes you just going to be a Patsy for number ten or you can make the argument. In fact they couldn't afford to lose two chancellors and soon I actually will have a bit more independence than you might think with. One thing about politics is that. It's this bizarre. Interplay between the kind of wide two trends that are going on and then the individual personalities and they do maybe have a lot in common in terms of their conservatism but they're very different individuals and she had the extrordinary meteoric rise. It was only elected in two thousand fifteen as an MP and all of a sudden he's chancellor having had quite lowly jobs before he entered the treasury he's also sort of unlike. Sacha Javid. Who had this wonderful back story about his origins which made him want to be leader of the party? And let's face it a few months ago. He was even being told of as a possible leader. Richie Soon Nakas playing it completely different political game and is on a completely different career jenny to such Javid so there's a possibility that he could become over time a more powerful figure. Within Johnson's entourage is much more. Like a court now with an all powerful prime minister who doesn't want rival powerbases in Likud. Right so he's removed. These people who might be dissenters or who he thought or his operation for trying to develop a separate powerbase but even within that sort of operation you can of individuals the favorite becoming quite powerful within and I think that's possible with.

Cabinet reshuffle: Chancellor Sajid Javid resigns –

"In Britain a cabinet reshuffle. When the prime minister reorganizes the key figures around him or herself can be dramatic messy even humiliating but most expected. Boris Johnson's first major reorganization. Yesterday would be modest. The economists prediction the night of the short knives. Instead there was an unexpected moment of high drama from such Javid the Chancellor of the Exchequer the Treasury Secretary and Keeper of the National Budget. He resigned coming out. Mr Java might have stayed but he would have had to fire all of his own advisers and replace them with a team appointed by prime minister. Boris Johnson and his chief aide Dominic. Cummings I don't believe any self respected minister would accept such conditions and so therefore I thought the best thing to do was to go in addition to a shakeup in other departments yesterday's people represents a significant erosion of the Treasury's independence. A cabinet reshuffle starts with those ministers. Who are going to be ousted being told by the prime minister that their services may not be required and mckelway a senior editor of the Economist and frequent hunter of Westminster's halls of power. And then those who will get the jobs Invited in one by one and if you remember the fear of being cooled into the head study when you were school I think it feels a bit like that even for seasoned menaces that walk of delight or shame up Downing Street who Press Bank of cameras watching. You can't be an easy one and Mr Java's walkout of that look Saya Javard. The now ex chancellor looked actually pretty confident. Think he was making a point that he was not prepared to take the deal on the terms that was offered by the prime minister. This was such a clash and seems to have taken place will come to a head so quickly that he was. I'm out of here and that was the walk. So the deal that was on offer was that she could stick around only if he basically got rid of his whole team. Why why was that? The deal that was on the table. Boris Johnson elected with a big majority very frustrated. I think in the last parliament by not being able to get on with the business of government as he wants to shape. It fell the Chancellor and the chancellor's team was somewhat in the way so having guaranteed to Mr Jovi that he would keep his job very publicly The end of last year he said well you can keep it. But you can't have this team of advisers around you and I think the underlying tension there is that they had different views about spending. They had different views about some curious of economic policy and that Boris Johnson was affectively. Trying to grab hold of the decision making process. If you don't have your advisers is very hard to put together a strong policy. Perspective could differ from number TANS. Mr Javert Simi said no you lost one adviser on the whim of Downing Street's he wasn't going to lose anymore and I think that will as the store that goes back as he say. So you say this. This was openly down to differences overspending economic policy. How so sergey of it comes from traditional you might call austerity light. He would accept some listening of the course on spending but he would still. I think want some constraint and you would see some risk in splurging splashing the cash. I think Boris Johnson thinks that everything is really changed. He's got this big majority. He can take more risks and the austerity years really needs to be put behind him and he wants to spend money particularly on the north of England in in the places where the Conservatives have made gains because he thinks that will nail down those gains and keep him in power for longer. Vaz's being around that is bubbled between the two of them. The danger here is that the treasury and number ten being too closely aligned has some risks of its own in prime ministers are more interested in short-term political goals rather than longterm fiscal ones and that balances often being a bit up and down in British Political System. And there's often been a bit of a competition but in this example it's happened. Very brutally very swiftly. The power has moved to one end of the soul to Boris. Johnson's view as has happened before with Mister Johnson. There's a lot of talk about the the power dynamic between him and his chief. Aides Dominic Cummings the Some would say power behind the throne. What does this episode to tell you about that dominate Cummings sometimes called the dark Lord around Westminster only home for Jokes? I think is very powerful. Figure had also clashed with Mr. Jarve it I think this decision to be so tough on the chance. That was primarily the prime minister's probably driven on Egged on by his adviser. They've been other arguments. That Dominic Cummings has lost recently so as power is not absolute. But I think if. Boris Johnson Dominic Cummings have a vision of direction? They want government to go. You put yourself in great dangerous administer. If you lie down in the road they will seem irrelevant. You so is that to say then that will end up with the government that is entirely made up of of loyalists of of yes. Men of people living in fear. I'm not sure that will also be yes. Men and women. But it's very clear that you kind of have to get behind the Boris vision of what is important and what is less important. Has He left enough room for independent advice. And for those who think of it differently. Omay send up a warning message. Things that could go wrong. I think that is the great risk. That he's taken here with essentials ation of power over the key decisions which brings us neatly onto Mr Chavez. Replacement. Help Tony me more about him. Richie soon act mid thirty s very trusted by Boris Johnson. Dominic Cummings but also the very interesting backstory is. He has also got a absolutely classic Oxford to banking seavy but as a small boy. He helped his mother who run a pharmacy to to do the adding open and the accounts. He's very good and gifted with numbers that you could say is pretty good going for chancellor always the case it would be. I think unfair to say to someone who's very far already in life and politics. He's only there is a naughty dog. The difference is the constraints are drawn. A kind of course it has been placed the work that he can do the budget's due in four weeks time. We don't know whether it's going to go ahead. But the country needs stability and I think number ten will not want to do it for very long. I think you will differ in some ways from the budget that Mr Javid would have given and in effect it will have to authors one will be the chancellor but the signature very prominently underneath. It will be the big spoiling hand of Boris Johnson. And all of the attention has gone on to to this this this debacle with Mr David and not so much on all of the other Reshufflings within the cabinet. Take a whole. What does that that whole story? Tell you about what Mr Johnson and indeed. Mister Cummings was for Britain. The overall message of the reshuffle is that Brexit is done that those wounds can be healed and that Britain get on selling itself as global Britain in the world. That's confidence not front foot feeling that. Boris Johnson often does exude isn't really particularly balanced left and right cabinet and conservative terms. And that's probably a bit of a difference. He has the majority. He's got the team. He's got the power and now he really wants to go. And that's the feeling it's been put behind this. Let's see where that ends up. And thank you very much for joining us visa.

"I'm not saying either of these models is better than the other. It depends on the quality of the advice to New Blair sort of Napoleonic very strong number ten model David Cameron because of coalition had a very devolved model to resume had to sort of system of terror to advisers victim of the few and a hill would order everybody else around and savage. Avidan particular rebelled against that. He hated it and he reproved raise me for after the election. Saying I never want to be treated that way again. He is not what sort of person that likes to be given instruction or direction by somebody who isn't elected. Some people get more sensitive about that. Been others but as far as as your Javed's concerned what Boris was suggesting wasn't just in front of him. It wasn't in front of the British system of government. James pays the counter is number. Ten helped him praised where she soon neck. They've found him easier to whatever at times in such Javid say if they now have someone they trust more. Does that mean. It's going to be a more even relationship I think if you can. Cameroon is a very interesting model. Because Cameron was undoubtedly you the lead on that one on because you know when. Cameroon disagreed in private cameron. One out but I mean anyone looking back on camera. Government wouldn't think that didn't have any influence you see huge mountain softwares dumb by him and so I think this is the question which is if you have two teams the trust each other. Danzon actually involve more complex one of the things that one of the things that the numbers around G. H. S. T. briefing or. They didn't like this idea of things. Being talked offers a win for this personal win for that person. They they they they they can took issue with that but I think the proof of the pudding will be in the eating right so what happens in the budget. More happens in the spending review. And you know what happens with Brexit? The trade deal. Where's the treasury's tunnel on all that stuff? But I think I think in a way as of about the French student protests both sides of the French Revolution. It's too early to tell whether this will work or not but it is interesting in that one of the other things that means is. The departments have traditionally tried to play number ten in the Treasury against each other. They were able to do that now. So there's this massive centralization of power because you've now basically got the treasury and the cabin office the two most powerful departments and government yoked together now. This news has overtaken all other cabinet. Reshuffle needs the have been other comings and goings at in the shape of this morning. Boris Johnson sacked five his cabinet ministers and that included unions Smith phrase. It wasn't so long ago he will. He won minister the year at spectator parliamentarian. The year was clearly isn't a curse but it does touch on the fact that this is to some surprising because Gene Smith's work breaking the deadlock stole months. Yes and which is Northern Ireland was incredible. Hugh Hughes praised by the Prime Minister for that all went reasonably well. The there's something else that you've seen as he almost resigns. When it came to the brexit talks he was regarded basically as being a bit of a warbler. He didn't quite mobile bits. He was seriously thinking about it. He thought ballots for long enough to put some doubts about his loyalty. In the mind of the Prime Minister he knew that he knew he was going to walk the plank and part of the reason that we gave Minister of the Year award was because people did think. His Car Ricard was marked. There aren't that many ministers who achieved much less twelve months. I think his achievement to get dilution backup running in Northern Ireland was probably the single greatest ministerial achievements of the last twelve. Months is not saying much. He deserved the award. But I do also see why Boris Johnson thoughts that he wanted people who completely rely on. Because let's not forget we might be looking at a Nudie brexit. At the end of this year we might be looking at Michel Barnier and born Jones not coming to terms and in that case lasting boras once somebody likely to resign from his cabinet. So that's a mistake which was made by an with amber route. And as a mistake he doesn't want to repeat James if we look at the various cabinet ministers were forced to. I know sacked. You Have Geoffrey Cox Andrea. Lets Him Estimate? Vais trees videos. And as we just mentioned. Janine Smith what do they all have in common? And what do they reveal that about? The thinking behind this reshuffle morning was this is the morning of a long memories because nearly everyone is only as far as Julian. Smith was all clearly on the verge of resigning as things. Go Very Harry in the autumn. I think Boris Yeltsin has long stunning worry about Geoffrey cocks dealer any pundits. There's going to be entirely comfortable of an attorney general who named his chambers after Thomas. More of the man who famously when the block rather than Rather than follow the King's lead Andrew. Let's go over the fact that she got eleven votes in the leadership contest and then basically wanted a great office of state from him as a condition for supporting him. I think he was gonNA incredulous about. That Theresa Villiers didn't Bat Boys Johnson's Brexit. When he first came back until morning Saturday sitting which we all remember tonneins were false. But you know van want number. Ten One is loyalty discipline and confidence and competence. I mean those are you got to take all freer voice boxes in this reshuffle. And if you look at the people who are promoting for example Ameri Trevelyan you know in dominant cummings is various blogs about the vote leave campaign. He wasn't polite about many. Mp's but I'm reach. Rebellion was one of them and then when Boris Johnson was running in the palm interesting contest. I'm really one of his wits. He was very effective at getting people to sign up his campaign. And if he what you see. There is a competent. Loyal soldier can reward. And I think this is. This is a reshuffle which is about. Basically saying you've got to be on the same page as time we're not gonNA have little bastions of of a rival powerbases across oil loyalty. Was IT Loyalty Discipline Competence? Ldc right the greatest of these is loyalty. Loyalty trumps all. I suspect this may be a two podcast kind of day. So we'll be back because we have old new appointments to discuss Fraser just before we ended this one. There was quite two-leg head of the reshuffle that Liz Truss could be in trouble. As Summons Tommy that one of the phrased bees in Whitehall. The speed take out the trust but entry. She stayed in position and she hasn't actually be mutual. Hello she is longest seven cabinet ministers. James Points Iras definitely GonNa say that she is international trade secretary so it's a victory of trust will to survive is victory like dunkirk really and this is more than the chancellor has managed to do and we're also told that we might not be reshuffled. Says she might be even longer serving international business secretary that also department was supposed to be ruled up into something else and so. I'm a big Fan of hers. I think she makes them more interesting. She's very good articulating. Why people should vote conservative. Which I have to say is being done brilliantly at the moment so long may she continued her glorious instagram cabinet career. I think one of the things this is. She was the first cabinet level. Minister Back Boris Johnson. And I think I think he has not forgotten. Now I think some some others around there might have done but I keep personally has also still in place. And he was the first. Mp Tobacco again coming back to loyalty being the greatest awarded trait and then I think other thing. I'm saying about Israel switches. I've been there is going to be thing which is number ten. Don't lie as you yourself are not gay team anytime. You don't like media showboating but there's also another thing which is if you mean social traits. Actually point your job is to go and promote the UK and so there is a kind of. There's a fine line and I always thought that she was slightly more slack on some of that. Stop ENOUGH OF PEOPLE. Because some of the kind of cheesy photo ops in various places around the world you might have been a bit cringe-worthy but they will say were effective at getting various the newspaper coverage in those countries fund. She's fun cabinet member and if you went to him move from that fun cabinet member we have not one but two episodes of wills Liz Trust. How much goes she might be. Thad at this right just. Www Dot spectator dakota forward slash bulls? Thank you raise them. Thank you James..

"Mug As twelve issues of the spectator for just twelve pounds. If you subscribe at spectator coat. Uk Ford Slash Mug. I pitched as a Valentine's Day massacre since we're under the impression days cabinet reshuffle wasn't going to be the big fireworks. I imagined. How wrong that was after sacking handful of his ministers this morning. Boris Johnson met his Johnson Javid. However the conversation did not go to plan around an hour later salvage. Avid handed has notices chance and quickly his successive. Isn't that enriches neck? James Flows here. Just Chinden what's been going on. So over the last ten days or so slew of stories in the paper quoting senior Treasury sources about everything from eight to two supposed- tensions between Dominic. Cummings ambushes partner. Carry Simmons Boris Johnson Been getting increasingly person the irritated by these now. He's important stress here but neither boys nor number ten foot scientist. Javid was doing this for the people around him. Were so when cited Javid came in to see abortions and Downing Street in assignment number ten did not expect this to be that difficult to conversational. Boris Johnson didn't expect that conversation burdens that we need to create a joint number ten number eleven operation to stop these tensions. What's the biggest single reason? The British government's fail but number ten in the treasury fall out said a star. I want to create this joint operation. That's the only way we're going to end. These stories is essentially. What David Cameron? George will's won't would have done if I had won. The general election in two thousand ten with a majority and Saturday Davidge said no he fought. That only allowed to keep on one of his aides would have him in stature and made him look like a puppet chancellor so excited to have it would not accept these terms and so this reshuffle which previously been at the middle end of the spectrum has suddenly become massive because number ten then acceptance of his resignation and the chiefs extra treasury. She's going to become the chancellor and you're going to have this joint number ten number of an operation now. I mean there are two very soon things about this. First of all. They'll be no hunted power. Centering government not you have number ten in the Treasury yoked together and that means essentially that no over department will be able to resist that he can under appreciate the fact is that Brexit came out for vote. Leave as new. Mp and I'm not means that even the end of the transition period approaches and tensions very possibly really rise in the negotiations number ten the treasury same page in terms of negotiating strategy for the trade deal. I think it means I mean those people thinking that the treasury might push softer line. Whatever the institutional terrorist. You're not going to see that now now before we look ahead to what this means for number ten number eleven going forward. That's the back savage avid novel. Go down as one of the shortest serving chances phrase of what are you picking up. In terms of the events that occurred today and previously there have been reports of disquiet between the two teams with some time. Oh yes sure. There are but then again counterbalance with warmth between the Prime Minister and the Chancellor Sausage Avid had his fiftieth birthday. A few weeks ago a few days after the general election and they're about two hundred fifty guests. Hardly anybody any additions there. The idea was that you were doing. The invite is personal friends. Boris Johnson was there and Carry Simmons as well. Now the two of them have always got on well. The only had one policy disagreement and that was overboard says Sir spending levels he wanted to spend more make more spending promises in the manifesto fence Javid did and in the end fairly easy truce was brokered by as we do the campaign chief but when it came to the big things about barring infrastructure aegis to there wasn't a single thing as far as I understand that Javid was holding back. Boris Johnson from doing. But this was all about the modus operandi. How should you run your departments under the British system? Chancellor of the Exchequer as always be an incredibly powerful job effectively number. Two job is not just the finance minister as it isn't lots of the European countries. This is somebody who's got operational control of the government. Now Gordon Brown used these tools to basically make himself chief executive of the government to Tony. Blair's chairman David Cameron and Georgia's born works alongside each other but didn't really change the powers and the tools what happened here is that dominate Cummings whose supporters. Johnson's chief advisor has always wanted to downgrade the power of a treasury. He didn't like the idea of there. Being another massive power base in government. He thought it was pointless. Having these tensions and arguments and so dominant coming saw. The briefing wars is basically a sign of tension to come between number ten number eleven so it was his idea to put emerged team now so when them says jeopardize conversation it used to be the first one to turn up. He wants to be the idea. Was He'd be the first person to be reappointed because during the campaign prime minister is Said Lips. I should javed's going to stay. He's going to be my man. He's going to do a budget in March. All of that was set so they have the conversation. Which as I understand. It went on pretty favorable lines. All the things that they were doing permanency was happy with and then dropped at the end by the way the adviser team's going to have to change now. That was sausage avid the deal-breaker he saw it not just see as a question of who the advisers are going to be basically whether he is trusted to run his own show without special advisers of yesterday wrong with basically a team of minders in the number ten beneath the whole time. He didn't feel that you'll be chancellor. And he thought he would be living up to that. Rather unkind phrase used in the press by him Chino Chancellor in name only he thought that was about to become real. The heat deal was the what was effectively. Saying was you can stay as chancellor but only on my terms and with number ten the levers of power now for him. That was red line. He thought this early before he went in because there had been speculation. That Boris Johnson. Do this in such a job. He didn't think it was likely because he knew enough to quit. Here's the big question. Did number ten game this as well to number ten. Think that says Javid will quit over this and that's a trade. We're willing to make because as I understand it says engevity made it very clear is basically either me Dominic Cummings. That was this sort of way that you say that I am not prepared to go down this route. Dominic Cummings once so you keep me in your government or you do things. His way in the end Boris Johnson chose to do is dominic cummings. Were now all evidence. Fast just Boris Johnson wanted savages. Stay on this chance. This long. He agreed to the towns but phrase touches on. Perhaps another curious possibility on this. Which is we know that such Javid had a better relationship. But then habits of the apartment so Boris Johnson. His partner that he did the number ten staff fix dominant. Cummings James G. Think that in a way this outcome which means that Richie sue not his now going to be the trumpster someone who we know. Get some better. Lots of number ten team is in a way the preferable outcome to some Vegas in number ten people who aren't shedding any tears tonight that sided to have it has departed phrases analyses. Right that I think Boris Johnson four puts adage. Abbott would go along with this and it is worth remembering that force needs is is in very odd thing today about a prominent abortions not is not as Westminster achievement. If he's what I mean as many and so I wonder whether he realized quite worser beak demand. This would be angry. Johnson's view would have been. You know we won't all teams to work together. So what what's the issue here and I decided to oversee saw says I'm as a massive encroachment on his tough and it was. I didn't endorse Johnson Sore. It like that. But he's undoubtedly tree but there will be various people number ten tonight you will not be sobbing into that an old but also I think it is. A remarkable is enough a remarkable development in that you consider how sandwich avid was very confident. That you know that. His relationship with Boris Johnson. You they'd the dogs do business at the same time in the morning. All that stuff would carry him through. It'll be has not the thing is I think that's boras thoughts. His powers of persuasion would prevail here that he uses charm. And you can actually see the argument. Look it's just a couple of Advisors Chancellor of the Exchequer go you can come. And all of these civil servants all were talking about here is to relatively low advisors so is it really worth walking away from the second greatest job in Britain. Well the first being editor spectacular of this also is another reminder of how Black Brown has left such an impression on people not to work to create a Cameron Osborne stall relationship and it they also they are determined to to avoid or a piece of Y- number ten in the Treasury clashing nothing getting done as a result of that and I think more. What's the problem? Why would you? Why would you object to us working more closely together? The phaser on that people talking about David Cameron Georgia's Boone. And how this could be a new creation. Look at Boris Johnson. Remember she soon act but the vents let up today and such Javid. Sidestep Dan ultimately sets the narrative that number ten have increasingly taken power away from the Treasury and there were points when it was more like the number ten AIDS writing the budget than those in the treasury. So in a way now they're going to have this system in place of centralized parents special advisers. Oh yeah she looking at a joint enterprise in terms of the chancellor and the Prime Minister is actually GonNa be. Matan calling the shots. I think is going to be number ten calling the shots now in the Osborne Cameron years. There's a reason might wind number. Ten and number eleven are the homes of a chancellor and the prime minister because there's two options are super powerful. The Odyssey guys in this officers have got to get along. Were as a complete team. We do that while having power over their respective offices. And that's the way that says Javid wanted to do it. He thought look. Let's just work closely together. We can have as many meetings as you want. But I still want to have power of control. I don't be I didn't want to be told what to do by advisers that pick by you so this is also takes us to a very interesting question about this whole reshuffle. Is this cabinet government in other words? Is this one with? The prime minister. Picks powerful cabinet members. You come up with their own agenda or is this the government we're number ten decides what to do and gives cabinet members instructions to carry out the movement is looking more like the latter now..

"Conservatives had a terrible loans to their election campaign but Labor isn't doing much better the deputy leader. Tom Watson resigned. One of its former. MP's in Austin thinks party. Supporters should vote Johnson over Copen London editor Asia. Has Rica is here. You're stopping the best though. Does it certainly the news about Tom Watson last night. Resigning was like a real bombshell. It's not a secret that he had been very unhappy in the party and he had a very different position to Jeremy Corbyn on break set. He had spoken out a lot about antisemitism in the party and his card it was definitely marked. I remember him seen to me am at the Henley Literature Festival in October. You know I think they're coming for me but this does come as a big blue particularly into maurits who are not as hard left as Jeremy Corbyn within the Labour party he was seen as the flagbearer for centuries but you a more kind of mainstream form of labor politics and I think there's a lot of the people of mortar MP's and activists who will be doing a lot of soul-searching today and thinking well. If Tom Watson couldn't Bear to stay in the Labour Party and going campaign to put Jeremy Corbyn in number ten. Should we as opposed Tom. Walsum was kind of a check and a Balance Silence Song Jeremy Corbyn and then the the the left side of the Labor Party is that now over is a new set apart to the Labor Party. There anybody August with you. It does feel that way it does feel like tomes resignation. Last night was kind of the final nail in the coffin of whether you want to call them. Moderate centrist Blairites wherever wherever kind of people. That don't agree with Jeremy Corbyn basically it does feel that. That's the sort of last gasp and in in a way I suppose it was always heading towards this point. Jeremy Corbyn does own the party lock stock and barrel. He Eh controls the the national executive committee he has the support of most of the trade union movement. He am in control over all the staff and the infrastructure and the sort of regional infrastructure and of C. H. Q.. The last bit of this off Jigsaw was people at Tom. Watson and labor. MP's who are against him and and they are really dropping off now. You've seen people like John Woodcock. who had resigned a while ago but he stepping dying? You've seen a lot of other. The people throwing in the Talbot but Tom what was really the last last year so the going all in four supporting Jeremy Corbyn is that going to work. Is the resignation one of Tom Watson damage in this election. That's a really good question now. I think it's it's definitely damaging to the reputation of the Labor party but but out there in the country in terms of voters. I think if you already don't like Jeremy Corbyn. You've already made that decision. If you sort of fought that he wasn't isn't your cup of tea. This probably a small number of people that were hanging on saying look. I'm going to give Labor. You know one last. Try Because of people like Tom Watson. Listen and because there was this argument that you could stay and try and fight from within the party to make it better. I think those people may well decide to change their votes tonight. Probably go Liberal Democrat. I would imagine. Are they going to vote for Boris Johnson. As in Austin former Labor Party member appealed for them to do today also he would do anyway. There's probably people who are strong leaf supporters in some of those kind of northern and Midland territories. Now they might consider voting for Boris Johnson. Because Greg said but they won't feel comfortable about it because it still lying squire kind of emotional channel line to cross and what they might be. More inclined to do is probably vote for the BREXIT party if they stand in their areas but for a lot of taller tolerant Labor Party supporters. Who'd you care about? Things like being inclusive and intolerant a don't just as much as they aboard Jeremy Corbyn because of antisemitism they look at Islamic phobia in the Conservative Party. Not they look the comments that Boris Johnson has made about black people about gay people. They look at things like the windisch scandal. The look the fallout of Grenfell L.. And the comments that Jacob reasonable has just made and I very much doubt that they will think right will. We're not going to vote for one passant because they've got questions over racism racism and vote for another person who has gold precious as well. I think that's unrealistic. But I do think the big beneficiary of in Austin is is is rightly the highlighting will be Jo. Swinson regret that I asked go back. Are we going to just minutes. After eleven. Hundred people are being evacuated to a performance of death of a salesman at the Piccadilly Theatre. It Start Wendell. Pierce was out in the street. Reassuring a shocked audience shaking hands and taking selfies. I was in that audience. Just a few rows back from where part of the ceiling collapsed onto the grand circle during the performance. No one was seriously hurt but seeing a roof crack and fall is a truly scary experience. There were a lot of people crying outside John Street and when Wendell agreed to speak shortly after it happened he seemed pretty stunned. Are we knew immediately. Something happened just like everyone and audience and the best thing about was the fact that Ed in front of House responded so well and all the safety procedures that are in place to make sure that everyone out safely evacuated safely all were very well. It was a very quick response by somebody who you know an actor. Hugh quainton please the new tactic. It just showed you how a yeah well I will prepare the staff at the piccadilly and his staff and production on on the show critic. Nick Curtis has been in writing about theater safety for the Standard Nick whip privileged to have some of the most beautiful theaters in the wild in London. They safe. This is the second time that as part of a ceiling ceiling has fallen in in one of our historic theaters. A part of the problem is nobody really knows What went into the construction of some of the moldings employers to work over these history playhouses and they were quite often for their grandeur and beauty? Put up quite quickly Frank match great architect used to build to a year across across the country. By and large I would say this is probably pretty safe. Although this was far far away from the stage I would expect the actors. The performance are working in London theater right now a really keen to to feel safe where they work. I think that's that's true as well I think for them. It must even if it doesn't directly affect them Last night's collapse happened in the grand circle I believe of the Piccadilly Theatre certainly did I believe you have personally experienced. It's David and I think for actors like Wendell Pierce the theater there for me and is a bit like their home so if something goes wrong it feels like they've been bad hosts and server have upset their guests or you know maybe they feel threatened. Yeah that's the impression I kinda got from him. Last night. He was very keen to reassure the audience. And say this show. We'll go back on but I think there's another eight weeks left of death of a salesman to run. How are they going to fit that in I imagine if they got structural engineers in who you say that there's new probably there's no question of further ceiling fall or any further sort of debris coming down from the ceiling. Then maybe they'll weird to see off the affected area and they will be able to carry on but I would. I would hesitate to make any definitive statements on that. There isn't another theater free at the moment. I think that they could get into so. It's not as if they can just sort of pick up and move next door as it were D- worry that London will get reputation for not being safe following two very similar incidents. Do you worry. The other performers international forms like Wendell. Pierce will maybe go. Should I work No not really a widely. I think even between in the last ceiling forum this one this one has been apart from people who were directly affected of course including yourself doesn't seem to send out the shock waves to the last one did I'm sure there will will be a lot of soul-searching in the world and they'll be a lot of Theater owners sort of wondering whether it is a safe and carrying out safety checks but it is great testament to theater and not a lot of money that they You know.

"Taken from the Evening Standard's editorial column. This is the leader for the whole thing. Pick up the newspaper or head to standard a Koto. UK slash comment in a moment. Julian Glover explains what such Javed's Decade of renewal really means spoiler higher taxes at Toyota. We believe that American veterans have the strongest credentials on earth. Especially when you consider that they spend years gaining valuable experience by putting their lives on the line to protect the country they love and the people that live here but that doesn't always mean finding a career path is easy. That's why Toyota has partnered with hiring our heroes to help over one hundred fifty thousand veterans and military spouses. This is connect with employment opportunities. We are Toyota. USA they'll be new hospitals schools railways shape investment on a scale. Never seen before we will borrow some more to invest two hundred and fifty billion pounds of investment around the country. We can invest more but we will continue to to live within our means. It's been a battle of the chancellor's the incumbent Sandra Javid versus the contender. John McDonnell both of set-out strategies attitude to spend very large amounts of money for Mister Javed's also changing the fiscal rules and our editorial column sees what he's up to number eleven his doing a heroic job trying to restrain its neighbors but they to want to spend more says ye Javid announced a one hundred billion pounds fund for a decade of renew new. That's code for higher capital spending all this barring by the Tories further shatters the fiscal rules. That Philip Hammond established to constrain. Theresa May Hey so. His successor is proposing new rules. Markets will see straight through this kind of thing so why are the Conservatives going through these contortions because they want to borrow more while preserving their dividing line with Labor. The risk is that they blurred distinction. That should be clear. Yes the Tories want to spend billions more all that neighbor want to spend a great deal more billions than not. That's the real choice. Our associate editor Julian gloves being through the chancellor's new rule book Jillian. This all seems very complicated. What's going on here says Jay? We're taking a look at spending plans. Debt money leader with lots of numbers in quite complex but really it really important and it boils down to simple thing everybody in government and in opposition wants to splash cash. But there ain't any cash to splash and so what what the leader shows. Is that the Conservative Party number. Ten and number eleven chancellor and prime minister slightly different views. Don't always maybe communicate but they're both doing do things which is to spend a lot of money and they're trying to make it look like they're not pushing up the data busting those rules. They set to be responsible and the doing it. They can borrow more money and make it look like that's not a problem but in the end as we say in the leader burrowing now will mean taxes in the future. Do you think the general public though agreeing to understand. Understand all of this by what's happening. There's a lot of maths as a lot of regulation. It's very complicated as an IT. Does that message get across to people. I don't think the detoquewil nobody can really understand the detail because we haven't heard it. We haven't heard a budget. We are supposed to have budget from the chancellor we've got general election at we haven't had detailed analysis from the government we aren't to get. Ob Office Office of budget responsibility. The quite powerful former body that was set up under the coalition Russian government to look at the spending plans for the government and check how the numbers were then not gonNA put out there. Interim findings the elections everything on hold. So what we'll get is under the table. People leaks. Allegations claims boasts all the nonsense of politics. And not the real bill and the public will pick up two things I think one is the more money is going to be coming into things. They want to see more money. Go into and then they'll have to decide if they trust labour numbers Tori numbers more natural probably just depend on prejudice and they might pick up another thing. which is nobody's being that responsible? It all sends me too easy. It's like someone coming along precisely a new car and a Sunshine Holiday and free bottle wind for life and who wouldn't want all of that sounds great but you know there's a catch and there will be a bit of suspicion that there's a catch and then it trust either side and that will also play into the characteristics of the leaders of the Conservative Party and the Labour Party poll show. It's a battle to the bottom really with public. Trust and Ratings Jeremy Corbyn absolutely on the floor on that the bars Johnson not let loved either and I think the chancellor not at all known a new person in the job not really understood. Imagine if you went out into the streets and said who is the chancellor lobby would scratch their heads probably even some of them working in the treasury given the situation between number ten a number eleven at the moment. That's quite interesting. I wonder if today's been a bit of a battle battle of the chancellor's both the Conservatives on Jami Donald laying out some of the Labor's budget plans as well. WHO's winning where we'll find out at at the end of this episode at least at the end of this series of of general election days of it longer to go I think the Conservative Party got knocked off track in the week They're trying to get back on track by talking about money. Not Mayhem and the Labor Party. Well it's pitch in a very straightforward leftist view. Which is we can borrow lots of cash? We can spend lots also crash and we can squeeze the rich and if people want that. That's the message. Though here the Tory he's trying to say we can spend lots of cash and barrel cash and not squeeze the rich and lots of other. The people were like that message. Meanwhile the just talking about brexit. And they've done that. Remain Alliance testing away at the moment for numbers even though Jo Swinson says she wants to be prime minister. That's what she's fighting for in the Lib Dem's good clear claim but I haven't heard that look Dempsey who's good to be chancellor if they come the next government so if that claims to be taken can seriously maybe they need them suspending plans to and of course they could end up being the party of sound money. We can. All sorts of strange things could happen. Next comes to something when I tell decent traditional patriotic with arches so they should be Boris Johnson at this election. That's former Labor. NPA IN AUSTIN ON BBC Radio Four's Today program urging Labor voters to switch to Boris Johnson. The standards issue has a doubt to the fly for all the other attractions action for those put off.

"But I mean to cabinet minister recently, he doesn't believe the custody is ready to twenty first they can run it done as close to the wire as you know, the end of March. So again, I think is a gray area. Even I mean, there was guidance saying strong, but I'd easing some people who think he can push it and were to resume to try and delay this vote again, though, I mean, the can't really get rid of her given. Very tried and failed. But I didn't think it would be great for morale, and you never know labor always deemed option of a confidence van trying to get 'em t- fed up. Trees may join any other prime minister you'd say if she were to cancel the vote again she'd have to resign. But I do think there is anything. We're would make Theresa May resign definitely and she'd look into a bedroom and never came out at number ten thank and she will not voluntarily leave that place. So it's similarly I can't see circumstances where she calls a vote if she knows he's going to lose by nothing's changed. She still. Yes. But what what has changed is that some people had thought? Okay. Let's hold firm now and help her wangle a concession to the EU. But then she went to Brussels miss, Ed. No, you're getting nothing. So it became of chicken continues. It's not so much her in a party is more parliament versus the EU and neither of them. Look set to budge a MRs actually perfectly resolvable in the end Muniz Katie says, if you get a bolt on to the treaty not changing the deal itself getting a bolt onto the deal saying that Britain can walk away from this backstop. If it's uses in the way that any NATO member can walk away from NATO any e member mock with the EU anybody who signed any international trade deal can walk away from that. That's all Theresa May's asking for and if they grant this fairly basic eject button, then parliament will pass her deal, and we'll go onto kicking in the Ken two years down the road. But it depends. How much of a a show the EU wants to make about this. They want to show they're really not going to buck over there. Not went to play chicken. Then there will be a new deal Brexit on the twenty ninth of March and finding Labor's will say on the pressure everybody that Katy this new poll suggests that the party members overwhelmingly back a second referendum. What does that mean for Kuban, but this is being treated much excitement? But previous polls have suggested seminar. I don't think it's a big shock that lay membership very pro the much more say than Kuban who has a lifelong eurosceptic and Alexa, tier, but it's Justice seven over seven and ten members backing second referendum and salient wants to be that to be labor policy. Think over ninety percents say that there is a second referendum. They remain people. The pointed to the fact that given that Jeremy Kuban when he first became labor leader said he wanted to give more power to the people and more power to the members. Surely, he should listen to them and back a second referendum. But as I say in the politics column in the new issue of the spectator. His advisors on Jeremy kupuna, very reluctant to do that not just an ideological grants. But because they ultimately think it'd be harmful on Elektra level when it comes to general election because it could repel biters the big question, of course, is what you leave voters think about this. I mean, sure seven hundred ten party members went with a second referendum obesity prize. If more than half of labor voters when second referendum and also KT details quite brilliantly in our political column of a new magazine that labored the town's labor needs to win back or places like Mansfield in places they lost to the Tories. I mean their target seats. Generally speaking, the path to power lies in reclaiming leave parts of the country. Now, you're not really going to do that by joining the coals for a second referendum. So I think the Jeremy Corbyn is actually quite shrewd with his strategic ambiguity on this. And also, I think that when it comes down to labor members will realise will they personally might want to second referendum. The would they really? We go for that rather than a shooter path to power probably most of them which use power over a second referendum. Thank you, raise an Casey..

"And because we've got very good story to tell in my opinion. Britain's goat. Easily in your of the best policy on refugees. We don't become suckers for the people traffickers game. We do take people, but directly from the places where they're affected we give huge amounts of money to helping refugees in near the areas where they're affected, and I think there's a figure that the foreign office has got the money it costs to help one refugee settle in Britain. You can help thirty refugees closer to the sort of conflicts, whoever refugee camps in Jordan, who are helping lots of people really making a big difference. Now what we ought to do. The my opinion is be quite clear to the Iranians who are already our number one kind of group for refugees settled status that nobody who comes into prison by boats will succeed in that attempt. Because that's the way you stop the boots as not by sending the military to stop them coming into Britain in the first place. If you remove the incentive you remove the boots. And when you stop this humanitarian catastrophe that we've seen in the Mediterranean thousands of. People still are dying every year the crossing because for as long as the people traffickers have rationale for making the crossing. They will if you close down that rationale Australia did the number of deaths Gutu in the waters as they've been with Rilya. So think Britain has got a pretty good story to tell about what we do with helping migrants overseas. But also how were rebuffed Lee compassionate by not being suckers for people traffickers home. Now, either the home secretary or the foreign secretary could say that so far neither of them. Have them took him up Brexit. We now have a date for the vote fourteenth of January Edmundo didn't we're actually going to see it. See this happen. This time round. I mean to raise my set, the is definitely going ahead with the which means it might not be give you so I'm the problem is alternate that has been a suggestion from the government that they were gonna greenie Goshi parts of this or not technically renegotiate the for. They were gonna get some kind of add-on some kind of concession on the back. Stop this promise of ood idea of concession seemed to calm down MP's just for the Christmas break, but we are nine are two weeks away from the week that we expect this vote to take place, and we haven't had and thing at and it was interesting. I think Jeremy hunt is almost tried to play down light today saying not looking to renegotiate the deal. So maybe they will pluck something from thin. Add means. But there's a few as you can do it. And it gets again, quite technical. But the volun- reopening, David Jordan agreement that says set an adults you could get should make clear that the backstop could legally end something like that trying to show that when go on forever if to raise my doesn't get that. Then I don't think this deal has much hype. Apostle and it's interesting on news day, we had lots people having roast dinners with the loved ones having lamb for the new year. And who the yard g the tweeting mine years New Year's resolution is to vote down this deal. So I think they have come d- over the Christmas period. And that group I think even if a concession the backstop wouldn't be enough people trees maze. Trying to get a the the middle. Brexit is and crucially the DP, but the DP organisms legally binding to climb down. So she could try and delay. There was talk though that you need to have. Stop by the twenty first of January. And after that, then you could start have MP's Troy and guide what the government does assume the withdrawal symptoms. I guess I've heard says that if the government doesn't have an agreement then then there are some P M P say, well, we've then go thanks Dominic grieve amendment. We can not control of this. But then it depends. What counts as an agreement. She might say well got an agreement with Brussels. I don't need a vote. Yeah. And it will say by what means to take control because basically under that they can instruct they can say what they want. The government today is not legally binding, so technically the government could ignore it..

And such has today defended his cool to declare this. Major incidence. I think when it comes to that holiday and the decision you d think back to when such Jefferson a different cabinet row. And it was the time of the Tatas steel crisis. When he was criticised quite heavily for being a broad, and there's a running commentary about when he was going to return from his holiday, we'll see going to and he did get very negative publicity as a response, and you can't have one to maybe he didn't want to repeat at that. He wouldn't have just this. Okay. I'm going to meet during the back. I'm just going to say see a family enjoy the ROY news. I'm back to London exactly land lesson from last time, abandoned, the safari. And partly that in the family at Christmas or just after Christmas. The again, it does go back to this point. Which is I think cabinet ministers that even more aware the normal of how the public sees them. And particularly Noto remembers around this time another common who's been in the news as Jeremy hunt who's in Singapore. Fraser, he said, the UK can learn lessons from Singapore. Do you think he's right over this is a fascinating chapter in the evil Lucien of Jeremy hunt's north long ago. He was the remainder who thought Singapore was sort of bad barren place. Now, Singapore is fantastic lessons. We can learn from them abysses innocuous sure, how plausible is coming from him. That's the thing. I mean, we have Jeremy hunt and such Javed's to cabinet members. Who are the two favorites is to resume that might happen. Any week pretty much? They might find themselves up against each other booth them a former Mainers who are now brigadiers. Booth them the fairly robust end the Brexit spectrum in the cabinet meeting. The talking about who's terrified of new deal is usually hunt and Javid who are talking as one about saying, no, we should be quite bold in this. The both of them have got problems with the rhetoric and Singapore has become the kind of touched over break. This. Here's as an example of what you can do if you're not fettered with anybody else's regulations as hetero of a nobody's seriously things we're going to get down to anything like their levels of tanks and welfare provisions. But it is something apparently the terrifies the EU. So anytime Brits want to say to the EU to give a good deal. If you don't we might just become Singapore on your doorstep thing, when it comes to Brexit rhetoric is still a little bit more believable than comes inside Javid because he was known to be your skeptic. Even though he tries to back remain. He was always known to be eurosceptic. I think Jeremy hunt that doesn't have pattern forming of Maine, quite bold statements, and then changing them quite drastic you convert the. To the Soviet Union. He is a natural. Braxton them was when he kind of is like pitching that doesn't quite fit and he tries size. And then he says something which is just gives a little bit tika. And I think when you look at what he has said to you today on on Singapore had a fee MP's get in touch to say that they were surprised to hear that coming from Jeremy hunt because if you look at those sitting around the cabinet table. Jeremy hunt is seen as one of the biggest spenders. It was Jeremy hunt. He lobbied very hard to get this mass cash spending boost of twenty billion for the NHS. An even suggested that the public would be happy having a special NHS tax. Now, he wanna have a low tax economy Donahue stone, adding hypothecated taxes, I don't know how that works to the system. So watch this space, but does feel that Jeremy hunt could be the anti-burn of the conservative party in his flipflops. If he's not careful, I think a prize either, Jeremy Hendra Sasha Javid is being able to properly define Britain's policy on migrants..
