So we already have at least a 5th of the electorate, this kind of like out of the equation, and there's nothing that I think American journalists at this point can do to win them back until this fever, if it ever stops stops. So you're talking about when I said ask voters, what do you want at the end of the day if you're talking about when they compete for votes, I mean the people that you're trying to inform? And yeah, a whole lot of them are going to reject what the mainstream media does as a kind of reflex that Trump has encouraged and right now I don't know how the repair is going to happen.

"Russ fine gold and Russ Miller, thank you both so much. Thank you. Thanks you all. Russ feingold is the president of the American constitution society and a former senator from Wisconsin. Russ Miller is an attorney and law professor at Washington and Lee. And the head of the Max Planck law network in Germany. Finally, I think where I come down on reforming the Supreme Court is that there are two ways to reform the Supreme Court. One is to reform what the court looks like. The other is to reform with the court does. And I think that there might be decent arguments for both of those. But my concern here is that we're having a process conversation. For instance, how would we know the Supreme Court reforms worked? Would there be some decision that the Supreme Court would rule on and we would say, ha ha. The reforms worked because they ruled in this way. What if they ruled in a way that we all hate it? Would that mean the reforms didn't work? Would that mean the performance did? And honestly, I'm still not sure. If you want to hear more about Supreme Court reform from the rest, I recommend Americans no longer have faith in the Supreme Court. That has justices worried by Russ feingold and The Guardian published October 2021. For the other side, you can read, we don't need to perform the Supreme Court by Russ Miller in just security, published February 2021.

the war may stagnate if deliveries of advanced weapons from allies don't accelerate Those are our top stories Let's get to the individual stocks we're watching this morning and Bloomberg sagarika Jason garney joins us here in our London studio Sacha rik really good to see you So there's a lot going on from the macro perspective of the know is a real top down feel to these markets but let's go bottom up and think about some individual stocks Firstly H and M what's the story there Money Anna Happy to be here You're right There's a lot going on and sometimes You don't see the wood for the trees but something similar seems to be going on with H and M stock Today which is actually flat despite the company having reported its second quarter sales that topped analyst estimates defying the glum macro backdrop that we were just talking about of soaring prices and weakening consumer sentiment We of course spoke last week about Zara owner inditex which also had solid results partly as it was able to raise prices H and M however had said in March it will try to strengthen its market position by not raising prices as much as its competitors H and M shares are like I said flat to slightly lower now but they're also down 25% so far this year However that's still better than the MSCI world retailing index which has dropped 35% to still outperforming Okay Turning next to the German packaging company garris heimer saying is said to reject a takeover from bane That's right Some M and a chat around the company is likely to keep the stock busy today Bloomberg reported last night that garris heimer has rejected an informal takeover approach from Bain capital in recent weeks The story cited sources as saying that bane wasn't able to meet the companies high price expectations What's also interesting is that the story said the company has been working with an adviser for years to prepare for potential takeover interest It's long been seen as a prime breakup candidate due to basically the different nature of its two businesses the cosmetic arm as well as the other division which makes more complex drug packaging and delivery systems And what about rate sensitive sectors including technology banks of course will be looking to those And because of the fed But now also because of this emergency meeting of the ECB Absolutely investors were already bracing today for the conclusion of the fed's policy meeting where bets have grown for that outsized 75 basis point rate hike But then now the ECB is also in focus saying that it's going to meet in a surprise I'm sorry emergency meeting today to discuss and surprise To discuss current market conditions specifically in terms of stocks within tech we're watching European chip makers such as infineon ST microelectronics as well as software companies such as SAP desktop systems micro focus The European tech index as such has had four continuous days of losses so it looks to be rebounding just slightly Today but banks of course more strongly outperforming because of these meetings Okay so I reckon Jackson got me with our stocks to watch this morning Thank you very much for that Now the ECB governing council is holding an emergency a surprise and ad hoc meeting calling it what you like but all of those apply later today to discuss market conditions in just under two hours they'll be gathering for this meeting This is bond yields across the Eurozone had been rising of course sharply in recent days in response to the announcement of the meeting and that's all we know really We've seen those bond yields come down We're joined now by Bloomberg's chief European economist Jamie rush So Jamie does the market response here the fact that we've seen those yields coming down this morning the Euro rose on this Does that suggest that this is going to be about fragmentation about the risks of spreads so borrowing costs for different governments around the Eurozone moving to different degrees Is that what this is going to be about Hi so I think that the meeting itself is going to be focused mostly on the fragmentation risk And they are going to be committing to using maximum flexibility of the existing tools that they have I would be surprised if they announced a new tool at this stage Because of the risk of doing that if they announced new tool that isn't seen as credible then they can make the prices worse rather than better And one of the things bear in mind though is that I think the problem in markets or in European rate extends beyond just the gap between Italian and German bond yields because risk free rates have been rising really substantially over the past few weeks Every time the market prices in another ECB hike or bigger ECB hike they also price in an increase in the terminal rate So where rates were ultimately end up And this is actually contributing significantly to the problem that the ECB faces does loads of managed policy tightening happening and it's happening implicitly So then you don't think there's going to be any new tools announced What did you make of the comments by Isabel Schneider when she spoke in Paris last night saying that their response would depend on the circumstances were there any hints in that Well I think she's exactly right strength that you can't do it You can't announce it that you're using it And for me there.

Kong's chief executive Carrie lam speaking to Bloomberg there these comments coming as China's industrial production unexpectedly increased in May while consumer spending continued to fall sliding 6.7% in the month COVID restrictions and China's COVID zero policy weighed on sentiment And just finally the Russian army is continuing its assault on the Ukrainian city of severo Donetsk shelling the metropolitan area and surrounding villages as it pushes to capture the Ukrainian government's last major foothold in the eastern region of Luhansk Now the regional governor says that Moscow's troops control 80% of the city president zelensky has warned that the war may stagnate if deliveries of advanced weapons from allies don't accelerate Okay those are our top stories Let's turn back to the market action today and bring in our markets live editor lorcan roach Kelly lorcan it's fair decision day on a day we're expecting very aggressive action but also now we have this news of the ECB holding an ad hoc meeting how are the markets reacting to all of that Good morning Yeah I think the first of all the immediate market reaction to the east Nelson used to be an amazing is rise in Europe Sorry huge hope we're still every year has been weakening a lot lately according to the fed basically because as well as look at it to two meters together the fed meeting is a known as we know it's coming And we know it's going to be 75 basis points or we expect it to be 75 basis points I think that's also a hundred basis points this morning is interesting and most probably quite outside there as I think that would happen But do you see me meeting coming up is more based on what's happening in the markets around how spreads of widened how Italian yields have moved out and what the market reaction in the last three or four days has been I'm not quite sure what's going to come with us I think it's strange that these holes in the rest of the meeting before the fed decision because they assume they don't know what the defense is going to be themselves So I think it's kind of how much we're going to get at this meeting is going to be a surprise to markets but the factor having the reason is all purity markets say that is at least somewhat positive for Euro assets Yeah okay that very interesting isn't it Look the other big move in markets has been Bitcoin I mean really quite a difficult time trading below now It's realized price I suppose is this a direct response to the fed how bad can the route get I think with Bitcoin I think I was written before about big kind of Bitcoin It's very much a liquidity driven play If liquidity has been removed from our last affairs there used to be lots of back to the robot reducing liquidity at tightening monetary conditions And if you're doing that then Bitcoin is one of the assets that flight has to come off So that's what happy Bitcoin is perhaps more liquidity played in this than 30 somethings ordinarily with Bitcoin itself Like I don't believe the quickness any fundamental value so it's very hard to argue for a fundamental price to pick I should not drop below and right now I think it's really liquidity disappear in the market That's going to hit Bitcoin or cutting our markets live editor Thank you very much for that for real-time market commentary and analysis check out markets live It's MLI V on your Bloomberg terminal Now the other new information we had out this morning China's economy seems to be recovering from the worst period of the omicron setback industrial output rose 7 tenths of 1% from a year ago so swinging back into a modest expansion even so China is still operating below pre-pandemic levels unemployment is high consumer spending constrained retail sales actually slumped 6.7% in May joining us now is Bloomberg's China economy editor James mega James good to have you on the program Activity does seem to be picking up in China but it's still all about COVID isn't it That's right As you said in your introduction there that industrial output has recovered Well it hasn't recovered but it is growing again if only slightly in May And you're seeing a pickup of for example trucks going through Shanghai is the lockdown there's slowly lifts Companies coming back to work And so there is a pickup in industrial output and industrial sector activity But the retail sector is not rebounding very strongly at all People are not willing to spend and they're not going to shopping they're not going to restaurants They're not buying homes And so that lack of consumer confidence in going out and spending is really still undermining what looks to be a limited economic recovery that's started in May after the really bad numbers we saw in April What about then the other idea of when a turnaround we might see in private consumption given that we've had these sort of indications of things still looking pretty weak I mean I think both industrial sector output and also the consumer the consumer side the economy depend to a large extent what happens with COVID policy And I think people are looking at governments have a policy and saying why would I go out and spend now Why would I make an investment like buying a home Why would I go to restaurants or shops when theoretically I could suddenly be locked in my house because I'm a close contact or someone at the restaurant was had COVID and so therefore I got locked in.

The two cities face each other across the seversky donets river and Ukraine's southeastern Donbass region and their key strategic targets for Russia's invasion forces, their capture would ensure control of the entire Luhansk region, Ukraine's second largest city kharkiv is about 200 kilometers to the northwest of the current hotspot. Its defenders successfully repelled a Russian takeover attempt and the MP and deputy had of Ukraine's EU integration committee, Maria mazzetta, is there. Good morning, Maria. I'm looking at fairly grim news from severo Donetsk at the moment it's saying headlines saying things like Russian assault redoubled after counter attack. What are you hearing from colleagues and friends and fellow officials there? That's definitely this remains a strategic point of recent relocation of the forces on the both sides. And as you rightly said, we are located just at two hours away driving from this area. Our biggest concern remains the same as the humanitarian corridors so that the people can not be forced to leave those territories to specifically occupy the areas of donuts, lugansk regions, Crimean Peninsula, and elsewhere in Russia, while the filtration camps as they've been recently called something very outrageous when people are deprived from their IDs passports, telephones, and being sent to absolutely random addresses across Russia. This amounts to around 1 million people, 1 million Ukrainians forcibly, extra 1 million people forcibly displaced from the 24th of February. And you know, I'm dealing with several of the cases right now directly with the ministry of occupied territories. Together with the Red Cross and other UN organizations and volunteers, of course, without the mandate trying still to vacuum people, even from the cities while doing everything possible. We do understand that there is also a matter of concern not only in Donbass, but also in the region of Zappos and terrorism where temporary occupied territories have no access for special operations for ecological circumstances. Specifically, we've been receiving signals from Mario for have a mythological plans are located. So international experts can't access it to assess the tragedy. I also would like to add that the current shelling in hierarchy of which happened. Just this night, what targeting the city itself and the surrounding areas, which is completely devastating, now the sun is shining. You know it's a very nice morning here. I've just arrived here from the capital. So report indirectly from hardship. When we're looking at these two other cities though Maria serre dorette and illicit, they've usually got about half a million people between them. How many of those people are still there of your president is calling them dead cities, they just literally hiding away or have they managed to escape. You know, it's different, difficult to count always because we are our soldiers, our place, of course, fighting, but those cities which are about to be besieged or besieged. The calculations can be quite difficult. We're all we're always assessing around half of the population who managed to escape evacuate and release themselves from the so called liberation who no one wants no one wants this and break its Russian peace all they bring is the destruction and death and horror. So we would be talking about at least half of the population who managed to live before I would also suggest that constantly local authorities regional authorities. For instance, the landscape himself are calling every Ukrainian who have such a possibility to live the territories which are which are very dangerous to be placed and right now and every time they hear sirens when we are talking about those territories which are not occupied in the besieged to use the basement and many other locations for the safety for the safety of our own population. When you come to khaki now, which is, as we said, the second largest city in Ukraine. And it was under attack under intense attack itself previously. You've talked about the renewed shelling even though the defenders of the city did manage to repel the Russian invasion at least initially. How much damage has the bean and in terms of what you've been doing as an MP. What are you seeing the achievements that you've made in those years as an MP that have been affected by this invasion of Russia? I can definitely tell you some figures which are coming from the recent donors conference in Brad slava, the security firm. So we have around more than 7000 damaged or partially damaged locations and facilities infrastructure in terms of housing in terms of hospital schools universities. And more than 2400 of those allocated in heart give city itself. So as a city, we have the highest number. Of course, more is destroyed, vulnerable, has completely destroyed this city. Our being absolutely under very severe damage. But if we're talking numbers, if we talk about the amount of reconstruction possible investment further projects, heart give is number one in this number, unfortunately. We've just passed the city center on the way to the warehouse where we have our humanitarian aid being distributed and I can definitely say that, you know, hard gives them still and we will continue to do so far. It's about pushing away the Russian army from the outskirts of the don't use multiple and loan range missiles to hit civilians. That's the most important what we are aiming for right now. That's why more weapons, more weapons are essential, military aid is today a humanitarian aid. So we can stop.

The Promise and Forgotten Journey by Silvina Ocampo
"Of the joys on the path of a reader is seeing a name that you see for years and years. Who is this person as we know today? This person who we hear of and don't know is likely to be a woman who's been neglected. This woman Safina. Oh compo was considered to be one of the great unknowns of South American Literature. She worked with or who we spore his when he was putting together his collection of fantastic literature working on that anthology as well was her husband. Cassavetes who wrote a book that Voorhis praised very highly the invention of Morrell. I read born face and Casado race as a young man but until recently I had never read much to my discredit savina Ocampo. Now I can say in my defense. The two of her books a novel and a book of Stories have just been translated and published by city. Lights press many people know city. Lights Bookstore do you also know that froing getty has oppress attached to that bookstore? Yes there is a press and they have published Safina Compost Forgotten Journey which is a book of short stories. But if I am not giving away too much the forgotten journey is the journey out of the womb into the world. This is a journey. None of US succeed in remembering completely. He did not remember it or face. He saw that. Silvino aqap ball had the gift he said of clairvoyance and so now. We have to thrilling books. Forgotten Journey a book of her short stories and I mean the longest is six pages and then a novel called the promise and we say an awful because it is probably the longest thing she wrote. But it's fairly a hundred pages. I have three translators here who have been working on Silvino compo and they are just some of the translators who are working on Silvino Compo. Because she's about to be the discovery that we have all been waiting for. It's very exciting. And one of these translators is the marvelous Suzanne Joe Levin who goes by the name June. Wien many of you will know as soon as I tell you that. She has translated. Cabrera Infanta. Julio Cortazar Carlos Fuentes Man will tweak Severo Saad we hand Buick Assad Race. And she's translated a great deal of poetry more than forty book on translations she is the dean of Spanish South American literature and translation with her are to people who've been her students and who worked with her on each of these two books. Jill how did you come to know? Savina OCAMPO's work well I came to know Selena. Compost work Because I had the good taste and look to make amazing Literary critic when I was very young New York name a mirror years ago and he with him I was down in Argentina and Together we went to the House of Combo They were married. They were married and so I met them for the first time but of course I had already heard of them because I studied Latin American literature in college and And I was at graduate school that time so but getting to meet. These people was like so exciting. You know it's sort of like meeting Gods When you're a student you're studying. These people like absolutely amazing. Did you also meet for his? At that time. I actually met him the year before because he was brought to yell to give a lecture and evolve bone. Was there also Savino Campbell about whom we're speaking being cassavetes and all who were triumvirate of sorts? Once they married for fifty years he continued to be their dinner guest and You know he as I said. He said of her that she was clairvoyant. She didn't take many photographs. She did not like to be photographed when you see a picture of Safina or Campo. It's not unusual for hands to be crossed in front of her face and if fast if she were going to this or that party she would sing with this ugly face. Jessica Powell use started to read Cedar Fina under the direction of Jill Levine. Yes I was first introduced to Selena's work many years ago in a translation seminar that I took with Jill when I was a graduate student at UC Santa Barbara and after that class ended Jilin. I decided to collaborate on a novella which was actually the only work that Silvino Compo and her husband Blake Assad wrote together and so it was lower haight which is fantastic and we co translated it. And after that Jill and I started talking about you know Oh wouldn't it be wonderful to translate more of Selena's works and so then in Katie a? New Young came on the scene and she's completing her doctorate and her dissertation is in part on Compo Katie's Latif John worked on the translation of forgotton journey. A book of short pieces. There has been also. I don't want to confuse anyone a book of poetry from the New York review books as well as another book covering the entire spectrum of So Vena or Campos pros. I've found my own beginning point. Were these two thrilling little books. Let's here who would like to read a section of Savino Compo? Who'd like to go start with the first black? I can read a section of the Olive Green Dress. The first paragraph from journey forgotten journey. The very first book of Savino Gone Full. Let's hear the first paragraph of the Olive Green dress the olive green dress. The display windows stepped forward to greet her. The only reason she had left the House that morning was to go shopping. Miss Hilton blushed easily her skin translucent as a waxed paper like those packages who's wrappings reveal. All that's inside but beneath such transparencies where the thinnest layers of mystery behind the branching veins growing a little tree over the surface. She was ageless unjust when one noticed the deepest wrinkles on her face or her long white braids. It was possible to catch an unexpected glimpse of her youth in some childlike gesture. Other times she seemed to have the smooth skin of a young girl and light blonde hair precisely at the moment when she looked as if old age had caught up with her. The first paragraph of a very short story called the Olive Green Dress as I read. The stories seem to escape from me as I moved forward in them. There's a strange quality of presence and absence coal joint as she writes. It's quite extraordinary and this first paragraph. Because it's so zigzag you know I I saw it begins with a very odd sentence received like awkward. How could display windows stepped forward to greet you of course? That's that's very surrealist element of you. Know which was the time she was writing in but you know she she young as she old. It's like going from a woman's You know perception of herself but you were talking about how she felt about. She looked I mean. I thought this is kind of interesting example now. Above of that of of those issues and so as very twisty this is Jill Levine. Who is perhaps the Guardian Angel of these three translators bringing savina Ocampo's writing into our present

UK correspondent for your news joins me in the studio here to make sense of a rather messy weekend welcome back to the Vincent the the thing that everybody's talking about this weekend is that despite the fact that it is brexit has brought brought us to this general election in the United Kingdom everybody is determined not to be an election about brexit overseas are trying to shift the focus back onto domestic guess used as the feeling in the country too much of the national broadband has been taken up the bandwidth being taken up five brexit for years and years is now and they want to hear the party's plans for other services they want to hear about education any chest police because there is a feeling that after ten years of parity these services are very much at the point of collapse and so I think my understanding is Labor will try very much to in the next two days to get the brexit part of the election done do do that big speech and then try to move on from that and talk about other issues the Denver through interesting of surprise that they actually put brexit in their in their main party slogan last week they are very much thinking that if they hone in on the Brexit message that that could be there rock wall like it was in the two thousands that got them under Charles Kennedy and Nick Clegg up two numbers kind of approaching sixty and if they have a very clear simple message and they will to other policies but if they are the anti brexit party that will give them a huge boost in numbers and along with the SNP it could be those two parties that decide the course of what happens at the end of this election indeed the political world at the moment is shifting to the point where we have how many people now who have left their respective parties to join the Liberal Democrats in order to buy into this this anti brexit ticket we've seen an awful lot of people who would say with Bush sort of Brexit moderates have moved over quite a few figures moved over this weekend as well didn't they yes we had more switches happening but also the big thing as well to watch as the number of resignations that's taking cases is pretty extraordinary you're seeing kind of root out of women in parliament something that Theresa may too low touched to help get in but you're saying on the conservative side of moderate women like Nicky Morgan who currently sits in cabinet it is going Margaret James was a successful businesswoman also algae bt woman she says that the abuse and talk nature parliament's got too much she is going You need likes Angora Justine greening you're seeing real kind of carve out long Ken Clarke as well of the kind of the the Severo file centrist camera night position in the party just suddenly being kind of removing themselves from it one of the key voices in that was dominic grieve is a former attorney general here in the United Kingdom them kicked out of the Conservative Party voting against Boris Johnson a now making a very strong point which suddenly places a British election or other international personal life is called for the publication of a report on Russian meddling in the democratic process in the UK to be published before the general election. Boris Johnson has said no it Trumpian echoes it it does embarrassed I mean the the problem is you know report tells you what went wrong it doesn't help you set up the procedures you need to change and protect for tech something for future so whilst it would be handy to know I mean I think all of the parties will be taking you know improve security measures to make sure that they're not oh getting hacked as we've seen other elections being where you know the DNC and the US was hacked but yeah there is a question mark about social media we know that twitter has decided it won't Muskrats I mean that wasn't a massive issue here I think in in the UK you know the numbers on twitter actually quite small when you step outside of Westminster bubble it's not it's not the whole population but yeah we all uh-huh very curious to see what it is that is happening on facebook because the problem is that you or I are not seeing the APPS that certain people James and Scunthorpe and Tom in Wales and and Julie Danas brightness saying because of this micro targeting that is going on in that still hasn't been cleared up it would be interesting to know especially with the kind of talk now the pressure being put on facebook iceberg and other countries in Europe having blocks facebook from running class I think Arlen and France with the two in recent elections that have blocked whether the UK should've said until this this problem is cleared up we do this but at the moment all the polls looking so tight and I think all the parties will be worried by the poll numbers at the weekend especially going towards possibly hung parliaments parliament's that they're all keeping mum on their social media activties thing that was raised this weekend was the the Joe Promise it Boris Johnson in had given been given the gave rather diner dej then stay in the European Union post the thirty first of all I'm currently unite currently sitting in London were still part of the European Union check my calendar country disappointed around the country expressing the defections Liberal Democrats there was he gave even into yesterday for the first guy and the interviewer asked him if he was if he would apologize for effectively breaking a fundamental promises miss that he had repeated and repeated and repeated and this is what he said this study I do I do and I'm deeply deeply deeply disappointed and I had to consider sorry yes absolutely right then do we consider that to be an apology or is this is someone who's sort of off off record half acknowledging the problem I think as far as half ignoring the problem and I think this might come into the four of this election Boris Johnson have a line for decades that his personal life private life is personal and he's not going to discuss it and he's not someone who stands on election and preaches family values I use but when it comes to this issue of trust and the scrutiny of someone's personal life that is fair game in a general election when you're trying to become the Alito country his election the Tories was only around one hundred forty thousand in the end his electric this time is millions and millions of people and they have a right to know the character the person that is leading country I think Boris Johnson is going to struggle struggled in that interview particularly the sort of talk to sort of he had to four times say he wasn't he was asked four times about ruling out to this Scottish referendum for independence and he wouldn't do that because he knows he might have packed with the SNP and then later on clarified obsessions Shinzo did rule out because the interview was very it was very boris trying to office gate trying to dither and trying to get away from things I think he's going to face in the coming weeks some pretty harsh questions about his almosty his relationship with truth the people that he has misled recently a court found her majesty the Queen and the way that he's conducted his personal life we're in different world though now and not many people actually care about such things it would in the old days have hats it's on quickly booted out of number ten you say that then of support for Johnson but I'm not I'm not saying that the conduct itself is what will turn people off I think it is putting a question mark above his head that he may not be someone to trust and the way he is treated family and friends uh-huh means that believing what he's saying is very hard and when he's giving interviews like that one yesterday to say for Ridge on sky in which he seems very evasive I don't think about will help is 'cause neither will Nigel farage who the leader of the brexit party and someone who keeps appearing on television screens an awful lot despite the fact that he isn't actually a member of parliament is and nor does he intend to be an an MP this timer I mean first of all a very curious decision he'd he'd obviously looked at the polling and brexit party had dipped down over the weekend in the polls he's someone who's previously run for parliament seven times and been rejected five elections to buy collections and being an MVP There is a lot less scrutiny than being an MP but an MBA in this country means that you have to declare your finances you you had to declare your interest you will say are accountable to constituents I mean I I for one cannot envision Nigel farage running Friday constituency surgeries and trying to help other people people have problems Nigel Farraj is probably a broadcaster these days first and foremost as well as a kind of media figure and I think it's very interesting how can you I'm I'm an send the latest say they're going to release their sort of six hundred fifty candidates they're gonNA run up and down the country they have given Boris Johnson is two weeks window to drop his deal and then they could form an alliance Donald Donald Trump is once again over the weekend probably frogs etchings toll bars you know do deal with this Guy Nigel but for Nigel how can you say that you're launching a national national domestic policy and not want to be the leader of it in the House of Commons how can you how can you be doing that how come the public you you seriously as a political force when you yourself are doing it and I think they did sweep the MVP elections earlier in the year I went to one of their events in the candidates some optic strong one referring to Africa as a country rather than the continent on stage not being corrected not correcting herself and I think the scrutiny that comes by being an MP is far more the running for an Emmy Pena's country and the caliber of the candidates might not be as strong they might not be as well vetted and I think think that some of them will be sort of par local hustings did some macaroni from urine you thank you very much indeed for journeys monocle twenty
A Different Kind of Derby
"A different kind of derby to tell you about it's the Mongolian derby. Yes, we said Mongolian derby, it takes place in you. Guessed it Mongolia between Russia and China. So you might be asking where is there? Racetrack in Mongolia. Well, you're not approaching this right? This Turbie is not run at a track. The track is the wild landscape of the country. The Mongolian derby is a six hundred twenty mile endurance race a thousand kilometers. It's designed to recreate the pony express mail system set up by the Mongolian ruler Genghis Khan in the thirteenth century this derby takes anywhere between six and ten days to finish this coming. August will be the tenth anniversary of the Mongolian derby. It was started in two thousand nine by a British based company, but we want to talk about the two thousand thirteen edition of the race the fifth annual event just a few weeks before a nineteen year old girl named Lara. Prior. Palmer was cruising the internet from her home in the United Kingdom and came across the Mongolian derby with zero training and some but not enough money to pay even the entry Faye? Miss. Prior Palmer hit the apply button and wallah entered the race most competitors trained for years in order to endure the fatigue and hunger and horsemanship necessary to get through the race. What happened after that internet? Search is a testament to the human spirit a true tale miss. Prior Palmer, spins in the new book rough magic which comes out right about now. And we're very pleased to have Lara. Prior Palmer with us to discuss her story here on in the gate. You didn't even have the money for the entry fee? So what happened when you told your parents that you were doing this? Definitely it didn't tell them together. I think my mom is li- enticed by horse's name Massa where they are in the world and was taken with the rebound to Susan ally. Was I think my my phone is difficult gauge, he's not doesn't angle himself into reality in the same race that he said it was very dangerous and said it was too opportunistic to do it at the last minute as I was going to and sort Instead of. of just didn't imagine that was the way I should be spending my summer, I think he had ideas probably more related to have imagined his children should be funding. Nessim I'm not even going to go there. What was your goal going in to win to have a spiritual experience to find yourself? Definitely doesn't have go. I was there wins co teenager who was really excited raise money for charities. I thought it was great is in the UK. Lots of people do rap marathon running. And I thought the mobile w was quite unusual. And it would be good thing to raise the greenhouse sports who do fantastic through sports in London with kids from dysfunction communities say that was definitely a goal. And then the other goal is just to finish the race. I guess the pot for doing it and guessing the experience at least for one day before jokes out if I did because no on my age or under the twenty three I think could yet finish the race. You will get to the human suffering in a second. But before we go any further, I think we need to clarify a couple of things first of all it's not one horse that takes you through this race. It's around twenty five horses. How do the horses that you're not writing travel with you through the race? Great question. Yes. It's an insurance rates to humans. Not voices say in Mongolia. There is not a lot of forces than many families on the set have varying amounts of numbers of forces their status symbol, as they are in many, many roads. And so in the summer, the organizes travel mongo Leah us king families if they'd like to act as a horse station for the race and the families will then get together thirty five before she forces. And there's a stations a place that sort of twenty five mile into intervals say, he writes, it three or four hours between station, and he stopped and you given your tied horse and wait for its heart rate to come level. And then you look at the line of twenty horses on it depending on how many runaway in the storm the night before maybe three and then he decided you're an expert. Cindy right on. So you don't even know these horses until you literally hop aboard. And. Get going exactly because even in polo, for example, where a number of horses are on a team with a competitor their property of the competitor. He knows all those horses or she knows all those horses. This is not that. Oh my gosh. How different are Mongolian horses from horses. We're used to seeing here in the west and not just thoroughbreds. I mean. Hard to say casino, lots of British horses a vaguely similar to mongering recipients by EastWest vied, really. But for example, I've ridden some some small Arab pennies in a friend in the states like she had some Icelandic ponies, which not dissimilar from Mongolian pennies, and that they have a large head size, and they've quite stocky and actually genetically qualifies forces, even though they sort of with a height that pony. Tony's it'd be under fourteen two and the way they differed the rave going into the Ray rarely Rijn the ones that I raised. You can't get together one thousand five hundred horses for grace and make sure they will probably train lots of the Masami wild. And they'll have been backed often didn't quite understand steering, which is lucky. He's quite often describe a straight line and a buck Christ law. When he got on them co box and open the ones that bucks that hard. The best bolt is and they would get Alex for good. I'll steam so yet to take that risk. So you're traveling like six hundred miles with horses that are bucking on you. They thought behold way back in the beginning. Maybe. More failing cheeky some of them. I mean within Mongolia, the horses a difference. Some families had Jerry very nice donkeys should expect type horses out of brilliant racing champions who were like woman is no horses. They relied lions do you? Try to talk to them chirp to them. Calm them down. Yeah, you can too. That's another thing saying among Golian language said different Brad for world. In different words, instead of giddy up is more like sound, and Yeah. you You can can talk talk to to them. them as much like I signed on credit lot. I told them, but my frustration Kreidler your any if you writing Elaine, some people some people do their your any companion. You've got to make friends of no matter what the athletic ability is speaking of the other people. I mean, I imagine that most of the other competitors kind of know who each other is somewhat. Then you show up for a fischel testing out of practically nowhere. What was that? Like, it was very global many of the right is not that. And lots of people that it was there was a sense of people trying to make partnerships because we were afraid to write a load, and I never really got round to doing this electrical doing enough of a serious bond with anyone they would welcome any on the testing days with two days or something. It was tens by slightly ignored that I was let high on the excitement of this new group of people fresh out of school with less. Not a sheltered life cried say, particularly and I was just biggest take cited by the whole gyn to natures how terrified I was. Did you get any vibe that they were saying away tea with teenage girl? What is she doing here? It wasn't quite like that. Because I was some other young competitors Severo friendly with each other. There was a sense of surprise that. I wasn't so prepared for the race and as desire from some older people to help me out of the show how many competitors are there in this race varies some years. This about fifty and other years my either eight thirty two so we're talking about thirteen fourteen hours of riding day. Right. I mean, what were the conditions line conditions is in the weather. The weather was very entertaining. We had storms, but it by seat raves followed by floods where you can't cross the land 'cause it's a trap. So you weren't comfortable, and you probably had a change of claves. If you went very good at packing like me. And you're probably sue because there's no way of training for this race. There is nice setup. Like in the any. Russia. How much you've written red semi truck or train polo. Tony's no one's really done this before teen hours a day. And is title is suck on the body. And you get off
