U.K. 'Actively Avoided' Investigating Russian Interference, Lawmakers Find

"Parliamentary report on Russian influence in the United Kingdom is out this morning. And it's bad, among other things that says the UK government actively avoided trying to figure out of Russia tried to influence the Brexit referendum for more. We've got NPR's London correspondent with US Frank Langfitt, who's looking at this high, Frank. Hey, Rachel. I mean, I said, it's bad. It's that that the British government would be intentionally trying to avoid figuring out the extent of Russian interference. I mean, what can you tell us? It's well, it's It's completely damning people here. Actually, we've been waiting for this report for months. And we thought we were going to find out if the Russians tried to influence the Brexit vote. The answer, in fact, was different and definitely it was more unsettling. Stuart Hosey is with the Scottish National Party is also in the parliament, and this is what he said today at a press conference. No one in government knew if Russia interfered in or sought to influence the referendum because they didn't know want to know the UK government of actively avoided looking for evidence that Russia interfered. Why, Frank? Why wouldn't anyone in the British government want to know this? That's actually really easy answer, and I think the answer is this. It would have undermined the Brexit referendum. Remember the biggest decision of the British people in decades? It's already changed the course of British history and the person who was front and center and that was a guy named Boris Johnson, who is now the prime minister. So if you say Russia interfered, then it could undermine this thing that has changed the course of British history. You can see why nobody certainly in the government wanted to mess with that. Ah Stewart, Hosey said No one would touch with a 10 foot pole and he went on and said this. This is in stark contrast. To the U. S response to reports of interference in the 2016 presidential elections, No matter how politically all quarter, potentially embarrassing there should have been an assessment of Russian interference in the referendum. They must now be one. Okay, So did this report find Russian influence anywhere in the British government? Yes, it absolutely did. One is the Scottish referendum. This was 2015 when Scotland was voting for independence. And the reason this is important is from the perspective of Russia. Vladimir Putin would want Scotland to leave the United Kingdom to weaken it. It's the same reason why we know that he wanted the Brexit vote to pass so that it would weaken the European Union. But another part and everybody kind of knows everybody knows this, Rachel, But another thing that that's mentioned here is that London is such a Place for money laundering, and this is a really good quote that I liked, frankly from the text. Russian influence in the UK is the new normal. Successive governments have welcomed the oligarchs and their money with open arms, providing them with the means of recycling illicit finance through the London laundromat. So how's the British government responding? Not much of anything, considering what this report says. You might expect something more robust. Dominic Robby's the Foreign secretary, he has has a boiler plate response so far, saying Russia must desist from these attacks. And that the UK has defend its country and democracy and values from such a hostile state. NPR's Frank Langfitt in London. Thanks, Frank. We appreciate it always breaks it

New UK government brings change and uncertainty

"Week's UK general election saw. Boris Johnson. Lead the Conservative Party to its biggest victory in over thirty years instantly the value of the pound and UK case stocks jumped now that election excitement has died down. We take a look at what to expect from the new government here to discuss this with me on George Polka political editor and Adam. Sampson had a foster. Let's start with brexit given them get brexit done John was the Tory campaign slogan will the UK believing the E. U. at the end of January. And what will that actually mean George. Well certainly expectation is that person will leave on the thirty first of January and the brexit done slogan Surf Bars Johnson extremely well in the campaign captured. I think the mood of the country that whether you're on the remain all the leave side of the debate. There was a bit of a sense that the three and a half years of Political Guinea since the referendum result how to redrawn an end and he's now gone native seat majority which squirrel allow him to deliver his withdrawal bill and to complete the first stage. And it's important to stress the first stage of Brexit on the thirty first of January then of course becomes much more uncomplicated and the real negotiation which is about the future relationship with future trading relationship between Britain and the EU and some people predict that will be even harder and potentially messier and the first part so when will Britain finally leave the EU. In that case well we legally leave on the thirty first of January but then the question is at at. What point do we leave the so-called transition period the standstill arrangement where effectively Britain remains part the same issue trading system under the European Court of Justice? And all the rest of it until a final final agreement is in place now. Boris Johnson has said this week that he will leave on the thirty first of December. Twenty twenty come. What May and indeed he's GonNa put legislation or claws into his withdrawal bill? The will make illegal him to seek an extension of the transition period beyond December. Twenty twenty now. Lots of people doubt whether a really serious trade deal negotiated in such a short space of time. I suspect if there is a trade deal in place by that point it will be very thin one mainly covering goods mainly covering things tariffs and quotas but not fully fledged future relationship that we've been promised and then the second question is if boss Johnson's determined have this new relationship in place on the first of January twenty twenty one. Is it practically possible to have all the systems in place including a new custom system. New checks new border posts a new immigration system potentially all within the space of twelve months. I think that makes an heroic assumption about the ability of white small businesses to make that kind of big adaptations short space of time. And could this also be a rocky time for British unity. The SMP in Scotland is pushing for a second referendum on Scottish independence and Northern Ireland's highlands position could become more precarious as it becomes the border between the EU and the UK. Will indeed. I mean that's one of the ironies of this whole brexit process. Assessed that in taking out of the European Union is Boris Johnson unst itching the United Kingdom of course Scotland and Northern Ireland both very strongly to remain part of the European Union. The fact that there's a resentment north of the border in Scotland about Brexit has created a situation where forty eighth out of the fifty nine seats in Scotland went to the Scottish National Party which wants a second independence referendum in Scotland. Boris Johnson said no so far. But it doesn't take that much. Imagination to concede that Scotland could become a bit like Catalonia with with a grievance festering people demanding the right to have another say on their future and in the case of Northern Ireland. Is You mentioned. Schoener the deal that Boris Johnson struck will leave Northern Ireland effectively within the economic space of the European Union in the customs union but name and the single market therefore the border between the mainland of Great Britain and Northern Island. For the first time and again you know people in Northern Ireland we'll be looking to Dublin or Brussels to protect their interests. SARS the economy's concerned rather than London. It's obvious obvious. That's unraveling the unions certain extent. Boris Johnson calls himself the Minister of the Union that so tightly gave himself after became prime minister. But that's going to be a big job for him and number ten to try to keep the Union of the UK together. Also the same even European Union now the conservative manifesto sketched out plans for constitutional institutional change. So what differences. Can we expect to see well a slightly strange page forty eight which is quite slight infamy in In politics where it talks about a whole range of constitutional changes whether it's the future of the House of Lords or the relationship between parliament and the Supreme Court which of of course famously became very heavily involved in British politics in the autumn and stop Boris Johnson closing down parliament's at a crucial moment in the brexit process. So there's lots of unspoken unspoken intent there about doing something about changing the system. If you like and Boris Johnson's chief advisor Dominic Cummings is basically a revolutionary who thinks the British. The system is bust. He thinks that the Brexit vote illustrated the distance that a grown up between many parts of the UK left behind person if you like 'em the elites that run the country whether it's in the media or the courts or the politicians and he wants to turn it on its head now part gets in. This mission is an open question. That's going to be a review of constitutional setup up in the country which will take at least a year. It'll be interesting to see how far postal prepared to go down that route. But certainly there's a real energy and almost revolutionary zeal about the people around Boris Johnson number ten and within government. A new business department and changes to foreign aid are on the cards. What are these going to look like well? That's the other thing that's Dominic Cummings. Mister Johnson's advisor wants to do. He previously worked as an adviser in whites-only thinks that basically the British civil services Pretty hopeless he thinks they they tolerate failure. There's lots of blame passing no reward for imaginative thinking and he wants to turn the British system on its head as well and one of the things that traditionally percents proud of his value has a permanent civil service which carries on doing the job. Even when there's a change of government very different of course to the American system where you have a complete sea change in Washington every four years potentially but Dominic Cummings said in the past. He thinks that's civil. Servants should be fight if they do about Joplin generally for life at the moment and he's also talking about a a big change in the number of government departments. So you mentioned that two of the most interesting ones. One is the idea of folding into the Foreign Office the Department of International Development which has a very big budget thirteen in billion pounds burst Johnson. Things could be better deployed inside. The Foreign Office is part of a wider global Britain foreign policy and business policy on the other one is the idea of turning the business department much bigger department covering international trade for example almost like a department of economic affairs pushing this agenda. That boss Johnson has trying finds a push wealth out of the prosper southeast of the UK out to the North and the Midlands. Now if I can turn to you Adam how has the business community reacted into this conservative. Victory sure so business. Confidence was very very subdued for a while for a year and a half in the run-up to this election over brexit over the gridlock. So I I think. The community breathed a collective sigh of relief. I least that Boris Johnson has a decisive victory. He has a majority he can push things through a lot of business. Leaders leaders reason the phrase clarity on policy that kind of thing it also averts a no deal outcome at least in the short term over the next several months. I think that was all seen as as a positive however I think there are many longer term doubts as far as what this is going to look like George. You mentioned earlier that it's very unclear as to whether there's going to be another cliff edge brexit in in a few months from now so I think well people are cautiously optimistic in the business community at the moment. There's a lot of doubts about what this looks like in the long run. So so what will the new government mean for business. Can we expect to see a tidal wave of investment after Brexit as Boris Johnson has promised so kind of said there there may be a short-term boost in investment. That just been like you said pent up. You know in the months of gridlock and over brexit concerns and it may be that boost growth in the short run as well. Maybe over the next few quarters early next year but again there's a lot of doubt as to what exactly the economy looks like go into the end of next year whether we have a rerun of exactly this drama that we saw over the past few months taking place again and there's just the economic forecast is shrouded in doubt at the moment I would say and what has been the reaction to the election in the markets so the mercury actions been quite interesting sterling. Shot up more than two percent after the exit poll on Thursday. They night a really big rise for a currency like the pound. The next day you K- markets were up substantially especially domestic facing stock so homebuilders her certain banks companies. That were at risk of nationalization from Jeremy Corbin's plans but what we've seen after that is a significant fall back in the pound found in fact the pounds now given up all of its gains from after the election outcome over those doubts about what exactly brexit's going to look like and I think specifically this I did there may be a cliff. Edge Breaks Leumi now at the end of two thousand twenty and Just you know these persistent doubts about what Boris Johnson's political plans will be. We still have uncertainty going forward. It looks like it seems like there's deep uncertainty among investors and business executives. Well thanks George and thank you Adam and thank you for

Boris Johnson faces a country that is still divided but how does the future look?

"Simon British prime minister Boris Johnsons Conservative Party swept the elections this week in the UK Johnson now says he has a powerful mandate to get brexit done the terms on which Britain leave the European Union are still uncertain the prime minister faces a country that is still divided them pulling at it seems we tornado in Paris Frank Lange fit in London Frank thanks so much for being with us Hey good morning Scott prime minister Johnson party when the biggest majority for conservative governments and Margaret Thatcher what does that mean immediately for brexit overseas right press is going to happen in fact he will happen very soon he didn't have the votes before that's why he called the selection and he has a really big majority but as you point out the future isn't clear like what's this relationship going to be going for they're gonna have to work on a free trade deal and the interesting thing is I think a lot of people who wanted the you can stay inside the you are very disheartened by this huge majority the Boris Johnson got on the other hand it actually freeze of Boris Johnson to be able to maybe have a closer economic relationship with the E. U. going forward once they leave because he's not beholden to sort of the heart rate was party now anymore the ones who really don't like Europe and so I think it's gonna be really interesting to see Scott is what kind of future Boris Johnson forges now that he has this political freedom he have to negotiate this trade deal with the E. U. N. has extremely time yeah he said he's not going to ask for an extension so is in is there still a possibility of an ideal direction you know Wednesday I might have said that before this vote it's now that he has all these big numbers I actually think that he's gone back on things he's he's made these pledges and then going back on them I think that he probably has the political capital to extend again if he needs to and certainly if he wants a good complex and comprehensive deal he's going to need an extension the idea of doing this in eleven months with the European Union is nobody in Brussels believes that's possible so I I think that the cliff edge that we are expecting maybe at the end of next year he can probably work its way through and then there's the challenge of of what's going on in Scotland because of course the Scottish National Party ran the table did very well in the election on a platform of opposing breaks it and they're claiming their own mandate for a new referendum on Scottish statehood that's going to be a challenge to it's a big challenge and I think that what you're going to see is nickel sturgeon head of Scottish National Party asking for another referendum Boris Johnson has said under no circumstances and in order for that referendum to be real to actually have an effect here it has to be approved by the U. K. government ought to have that kind of referendum what I think is gonna be interesting as you go and get into twenty twenty one of the Scottish parliamentary elections and if the S. and P. does well then it's going to put a lot of pressure on Boris Johnson to continue to refuse this request from you know what look like from the Scottish people themselves if they keep voting in this direction the other thing though that's really interesting Scott as you look at the European Union you know the Scottish National Party says we we want to leave the U. K. and and rejoin the U. we never want to leave in the first place is the European Union gonna be willing to take a Scotland back it does not want to be encouraging countries breaking up so it's very complicated in the next I think the next couple of years are going to be very important see what happens in Scotland for the future of the United Kingdom prime minister Johnson has vowed to get this all done by January thirty one twenty twenty is that possible yeah it's full steam ahead now now that he has this majority it's gonna be opposite of the paralysis that you know I've been talking about last he's got the numbers he's parlance gonna re open next week he's going to introduce his what has been a failed brexit withdrawal agreement up until this point and it should easily pass and I think everyone's expectation is at the end of January the U. K. is out of the U. and Paris Frank blanket thanks so

For Scotland and Northern Ireland, a Weakening of Ties

"There is Scotland and Northern Ireland places that did not want brexit. Will all of this renew calls for a referendum on Scottish independence. What does this really mean for unity? Well that's a very good point that the UK voted fifty two to forty eight to leave the European Union but the constituent parts of the United Kingdom notably Scotland Northern Ireland voted more or less sixty or sixty five sixty forty sixty five thirty five knots to leave and so to the United Kingdom threatens to become deeply this United Kingdom. You saw that last night and maybe remarkable for your listeners. Out of the fifty nine seats in Scotland Oakland at the Westminster Parliament fifty. Five of them were one by the Scottish National Party which is of course an independence supporting party and so the demand for Scottish independence is going to grow and what you see is a constitutional fight in which the Scottish members of parliament parliament from the Scottish National Party and the government which is the devolved assembly a bit like a stay of the closest equivalent America would be a state government but the Scottish government government which is elected to the devolved parliament in Scotland will be demanding a referendum whereas the Westminster Parliament and the UK government will be saying no. So you'll get to see real strange there and I suppose then it's also important that you mentioned Northern Ireland The hard won peace has been brokered a in large part because so many issues of identity and trade could be subsumed within a European identity. That's no longer possible. And so the the issue of how the mainland of the UK. The Great Britain trades with Northern Ireland. That is going to be a very toxic a source of attention. I fear the great dangerous that some of the worst of the troubles of the sixties and seventies comeback.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn says he won't lead party in another UK election but won't quit right away

"Prime minister. Boris Johnson has won a sweeping decisive and powerful majority of parliamentary seats. It's in a mandate to deliver brexit ballots tallied through the night affirmed that Johnson and his Conservative Party had achieved a smashing success. The largest wind for the Tories since Margaret Thatcher prevailed a third time in nineteen eighty seven. The opposition Labor Party suffered its worst defeat since the mid in nineteen thirties. Friday morning with just one constituency still to declare the Conservatives have won three hundred sixty four spots in the six hundred fifty seat parliament Labor's Labour's hard left leader. Jeremy Corbyn announced he will not lead his party in any future general election campaign but said he intends to stick around for a little while. During a period of reflection in transition Johnson the bombastic showman who led the campaign to leave the European Union back in June twenty sixteen referendum is now positioned to be the prime minister to see Britain set sail from Europe next month and dreams of a second referendum and of remaining being in the EU have been dashed president trump. Who made little effort to hide? His partiality toward Johnson during the election tweeted his congratulations. Johnson in the Conservatives ran as populists offering not only brexit but also spending surged for cops nurses schools in elder care. One of their strategies was to try to break breakthrough. What's called Labor's Red Wall of traditional support among the working class voters in faded industrial towns in England's north and Midland's? This strategy was a stunning success. The Tories won the town of Workington. For example WORKINGTON has been held by Labour without without a blip since nineteen eighteen voters. They're told our reporters they wanted brexit and they didn't trust Corbin Johnson this morning in his his victory speech specifically addressed voters who went conservative for the first time ever in this election. He promised he won't take their support for granted with the Conservatives primed to extend their rain from twenty ten and tell twenty twenty four assuming Johnson serves his full five-year term Labor is looking at years in the wilderness us. It was a grim night to the Anti Brexit Liberal Democrats whose leader Jo Swinson lost her seat to a candidate from the Scottish National Party.

"No Mary Louise as you jump in here and see the Johnson has another theory as to why Corbin will do this labor is actually well behind in the polls right now he thinks Corbin is afraid that if there's an election next month labor lose it. all right so I'm trying to keep up with all this and any other thing that that is in play here is parliament passed a law last week that requires Boris Johnson either to get some kind of new brexit withdrawal agreement with you or go back and asked to delay brexit again no Johnson tonight said he will never ask for a dollar he said no can do so how does this work is he threatening to violate the law the parliament just passed it certainly seems that way and that's where a lot a lot of people in parliament see it like that too many were angry tonight with the prime minister in black for he leads the Scottish National Party in the house of Commons he warned Johnson about flouting the will of parliament is what he said he can't. you occupied the highest office in the land. and what demonstrating to the people of the United Kingdom. the law doesn't matter no she's mention one thing Johnson's allies in the Conservative Party say he will follow the law but it looks like they may already be looking for some loopholes in the meantime the opposition parties they're already working on a legal case to take the prime minister the Supreme Court if they have to all right and meantime this maybe as we mentioned the last time we hear from parliament in awhile because they have been suspended it remind us why Boris Johnson thinks that is a good idea with practice so close when most people think the original strategy was to haul parliament from blocking him from taking the country on a no deal brexit that's strategy failed as you were just mentioning earlier parliament rush through a bill of last week and blocking in deal brexit so Johnson's going along with the suspension he sidelining parliament he's already lost his majority in parliament so he's a lame duck and now parliaments just a thorn in the side hi and meanwhile the further twist in here is the speaker of the house of Commons the very colorful John Brcko whose he's known for sharpness let's hear him. well adding to the disorder there in in Britain is that is that Burkle he says he will be stepping down soon why. well he is of course he's a hugely entertaining guy as you mentioned he's kind of a walking thesaurus and has become a bit of a cult figure and even outside the United Kingdom but he's also very controversial of brexit tears fear they argue that he broke parliamentary convention to favor people who want to Dick's keep the U. K. inside the European Union he was four remaining in the European Union during the two thousand sixteen were referendum conservatives actually want to run a candidate against him in the next election and workers been in office for about ten years I talk to about this in an interview he feels it's time to move on and he'll be leaving either at the brexit deadline of October thirty first or an election which ever comes first which means. he soon we will no longer be hearing order order which many people at least I will miss can I can hear you've been working on the accent there and peers Franklin fed in London thank you have the dude Mary Louise..
