"A look at what else is happening in the news, Australia's military is sending a thousand troops to Melbourne in an effort to help contain the coronavirus outbreak of a fears of a second wave Qantas will cut at least six thousand jobs as part of its plans to survive the pandemic, and in the US, the governor of New York new, Jersey and Connecticut of announced that visitors from states with high corona virus infection rates must self quarantine for fourteen days on arrival do stay tuned to Monte throughout the day for more on those stories, but first we begin in Singapore where the Prime Minister Lee Sin plunked. Plunked dissolved parliament late on Tuesday and announced plans to hold a snap election on July the tenth many months before they're ju- well. The moves raise concern as the city status still in the middle of the coronavirus, pandemic and smaller parties say that alongside the risk to the health of voters, the disease will make campaigning difficult lease people's action. Party AP has been in power uninterrupted since nineteen, fifty nine, and currently holds eighty. Three of the eighty nine seats Stephania Palmer is the F.. T. Singapore correspondent. She's on the line now. Stephanie. Thanks for joining us. Why has decided to do this? No, he didn't need to. So the prime minister said that essentially he reckons Singapore at the moment has reached a stable phase with regards to the corona virus We have to remember the earlier this year Singapore was praised for seemingly containing the virus, but then was hit with a severe outbreak amongst migrant worker dormitories, which propelled the number of patients to one of the highest in the region. Region, but since then numbers have been coming down, and the lockdown measures has started easing the the easing of these measures have been expanded also last week, so in light of this, he said this was a good moment to hold these elections also because they weren't sure whether the pandemic would be over a before. The term of this government must end next April. He also mentioned ops. It was necessary to hold elections in order to give the government basically a fresh mandate to talk tackled both followed from the coronavirus, which is hitting the economy here very hard at it also to deal with external problems and concerns such as the US presidential elections or the border clashes between India Indian China so what measures will be put in place to ensure that the vote can go ahead without sparking a second wave of infection. So poor has a sets basically that it will be implementing specific safety measures, including a temperature screening or giving voters recommended time slots in order to decrease the voter density up polls, or for instance, also increasing the number of polling stations to not have overcrowding butts. You know some critics, and especially as you mentioned opposition parties still believed that it is dangerous to hold an election up this moment in time. We're obviously There will be an enormous movement of people. And another element of. The plan to hold elections. During this pandemic is stops essentially physical election rallies will not be possible and as a response the Elections Department here, said thoughts. The candidates will be given more television airtime as a result, so they're all suggestions that pasta elections have been waited in the ruling. Party's favor is credible. Well there are several and Joe's and obviously opposition parties that argued that there are structural restrictions. thoughts basically puts the opposition to disadvantage, even during ordinary times, and these include for instance, the fact that the campaigning period is very very short. and there are quite high candidates registration fees It's also a people also sometimes point to the timing of elections. Essentially, the the president of Singapore may dissolve parliament at any time, basically before the end of the of parliament's five-year term on the advice of the prime. Minister so obviously if the ruling party A. B. Basically opposition argues are at an advantage when it comes to the timing of the elections and the announcement of the elections, so the prime minister is brother Lee in young says he's joined the newly founded progress Singapore Party now. The two men embroiled in a longstanding row. What's that all about? Yes so. Essentially Lisa Young, he's the prime minister's estranged. Brother joined the opposition party, however at the party did not disclose whether he would actually stand for elections, but this obviously creates a a lot of Ferrara here in Singapore because the two brothers as well as their sister leeway lean, have been locked into this family feud which I came became public in two thousand, sixteen and basically was triggered. By a dispute over the house of their father, liqun you was also a Singapore's founding, father and first prime minister, so this conflict essentially is once again brought to the surface amid these upcoming elections, so is there any possibility that the status quo will shift in the country is assured of a win, and and who will be leading the government going forward. So the current finance minister, who was also is also the deputy. Prime Minister has been promoted within the PAP to a very senior position. Pointing to the fact, thoughts with a PHP win. He is sort of seen as the likeliest person. To succeed to these young long, so that is figure out is seen as the likeliest person to take on the role if the PEOP- wins honestly, there is not a a lot of expectation for a massive turnaround in terms of the election results I think the general. Understanding or expectation is that the PCP is probably likelier to win but I do think that's the new PS. P parts especially with this. Of Leasing Young joining it's is really shaking up things ahead of this of votes, and definitely stirring up a lot of public debates on the island Stephania. Thanks very much indeed that Stephania Palmer the FTC's Singapore correspondent. The.

"Records at Oxford or a Cold Mutare and there is also an alternative account of these years also told at various points by Duquesne in which he. He claimed that he had been on route to Europe from Africa aboard a steamer after a break between his English schooling in his advanced study before he went to university, when suddenly his plans shifted and according to this story, he said that he met a man on that journey while he was on the ship who convinced him that he would learn more if he took his school money and used it to travel around the world, and so the two men set off together. Allegedly, this journey ended when Duquesne's father caught up to the pair in Singapore, partying like crazy, and then sent for back to school, but as Fritz was you there on a globe trotting drinking binge with his new much older friend or learning about explosives and military school, the issues between the brewers and the British back home more escalating.

In eighteen ninety nine things boiled over and twenty two year old Fritz was ready to fight. Fritz claimed that he had been summoned to return home from Europe to join the fight in a letter from his father, but it seems as Abraham Duquesne was actually already dead by ninety nine. An ultimatum, though was issued jointly by Transvaal and the Orange Free State that British troops had to be out of bore territory by October Eleventh Eighteen, Ninety nine at did not happen, and so on October twelfth.

"Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm holly FRY and I'm Tracy. Wilson is so back. When this pandemic began we selected ten episodes to go on our offbeat history play list which was a playlist. That we've dropped off. Things were a little more light in tone so that they might be a nice distraction and one of the things that I had selected to include was our to partner on the great American hip ranch plan and so in re listening to those just for a quality check. I realized that I mentioned during them that it would be really really fun to do an entire episode on Fritz Duquesne because his life was. I don't know a better word to describe it bananas. It's a it's a journey of very a lot of journey. I mean I I envy both his bravado and his energy but so here I am almost four years later. Finally doing that thing And that to partner has spawned another two parter because we are talking about a man who changed his life story to suit his needs. He worked under an estimated forty. Aliases and he lived a life. That was very full but it also directly involves a lot of significant historical events. One of the things that Duquesne Excel. That was escaping custody and this first part is going to cover his early life up to an escape that serves as a major shifting point in his life and then next time we will cover a whole bunch of his time as a saboteur spy and journalists among other things right up to the end of his life and. I want to give you a heads up that this episode does contain brief. Mentions of sexual violence decanes. Parents Abraham and minute lived in East London in Cape province South Africa and Abraham was a hunter just slowly built up a fortune by selling hides as well as tusks and horns. The Duquesne's were bewers. These were Dutch and huguenots settlers and their descendants. He made their homes in southern Africa. Starting in the Seventeenth Century. I was born on December. Twenty first of eighteen. Seventy seven and his full name. Was Frederick Lugano Joubert Duquesne? And at this point. The spelling of that last name was D. U. Q. U. E. N. N. E. His spelling of it changed later on in his life. Yeah if you hear someone who is a French speaker pronounce it particularly the way? His parents spelled it. It will be more like Duquesne We're that sound is a little softer. And then as he lived his life duquesne in that sort of harder. A Sound Americanized style became part of it and he started spelling it differently The blurred nature Fritz's life. Story begins right there at the beginning at least in terms of how he presented himself. This will come up over and over that he kind of crafted his persona. I don't even want to say carefully. Because he was sloppy details at times but To suit his needs and while he was born in the do duquesne home with like to tell people was that he was born on the run as his parents traveled with other white European descendent Afrikaners and were attacked by a group of black Africans. He claimed that he came into the world hearing gunfire. This was just one of the many stories that Fritz would eventually tell as he crafted this very complicated and completely unverifiable backstory. Despite the fact that he spent most of his time as a team being educated in England he claimed that in those same years he had been captured by Bantu speaking tribe and had saved himself by making the daughter of the tribal leader. Fall in love with him. A lot of this is racially very problematic. Like the whole story of of of European colonialism in South Africa is like we're GONNA touch on its own but there's a lot of pieces that are very racist and problematic. We will talk about Duquesne as an adventure but we don't really delve into the the really problematic and difficult thing that the attitude of virtually all white European descendent men who categorize themselves as adventures had really really unfortunate and incorrect attitudes about the people that were native to the places they like to explore It's coming on the show many times so I felt like Duquesne story is busy enough. We didn't need to You know can adventure over that territory again But the do cans did certainly find themselves in the conflict between the blandly inhabitants of South Africa. Fritz is actually alleged to have killed a Zulu man who was attacking his mother when he was still just a boy and then to have been involved in a much larger battle between the Dutch descendant Afrikaners and a group of Bantu men when he was just twelve and while these stories do seem to have at least been grounded in some actual events of conflict. We should note that this information comes from sources that are all written from the Bluer point of view in eighteen o six the cape colony which had been controlled by the Dutch until this point fell under British control. During the Napoleonic wars this led to a lot of friction between the brewers and Britain over a number of issues the biggest one was Britain's anti-slavery stance. Many beurs decided to move to more rural areas. They eventually founded Transvaal and the Orange Free State Britain recognize those independent republics although as violence between the brewers and the native Bantu Peoples Escalated. Britain moved in its troops into these republics under the pretext of keeping the peace. There's really a motivation. In this whole mix that was outside of diplomacy politics for Britain. That was the discovery of gold and diamonds in the area and the ports around the Cape that were active. Trade routes also added value to Transvaal. That Britain was really eager to control. Yeah it was initially like. Oh sure you have your own country. That's fine wait. Your countries have stuff That stuff we have to help you helping we're helping This is of course the very broad strokes version of all of this but ultimately a struggle for control of the region escalated unsurprisingly into military conflict. The first of these which was called the first boomer war or sometimes the first Anglo boomer war or the Transvaal rebellion. And you'll even find other names started in December eighteen eighty and it resulted in British defeat. Fritz was just three years old win. This played out but the ongoing hostility toward Great Britain in the area was part of a culture that he grew up in an in an odd twist. Despite this anti Anglo sentiment Fritz was as we mentioned just a moment ago sent to England for school as a teenager allegedly at the behest of an uncle on his mother's side who recognize that there is just no comparable education in southern Africa. The story goes that after attending private school and graduating Fritz moved on I two Oxford for a year and then to the Belgian echoed militaire in Brussels. When he was there he learned about artillery and engineering as well as explosives he also became proficient in fencing and swordsmanship and according to the kind of legendary duquesne accounts this resulted in the deaths of three different challengers in. Dole's the rose over the affections of young ladies These assertions though are not really backed up with any kind of attendance records at Oxford or a Cold Mutare and there is also an alternative account of these years also told at various points by Duquesne in which he claimed that he had been on route to Europe from Africa aboard a steamer after a break between his English schooling in his advanced study before he went to university when suddenly his plans shifted and according to this story he said that he met a man on that journey while he was on the ship who convinced him that he would learn more if he took his school money and used it to travel around the world and so the two men set off together allegedly. This journey ended when Duquesne's father caught up to the payer in Singapore partying like crazy and then sent for back to school but as Fritz. Was You there on a globe trotting drinking binge with his new much older friend or learning about explosives and military school the issues between the brewers and the British back home more escalating. This would become the second Bouira war. There were a lot of circumstances in the mix leading to the cause of this the ideologies of Britain versus the Orange Free State and the Republic of Transvaal also known as the Republika South Africa. Were still at odds. Annexation of parts of Transvaal by Britain were once again. The focus. Was this battle over. The control of valuable resources like gold in eighteen ninety nine things boiled over and twenty two year old. Fritz was ready to fight. Fritz claimed that he had been summoned to return home from Europe to join the fight in a letter from his father but it seems as Abraham Duquesne was actually already.
