Robyn Pfaffman: Tyre Nichols Video May Be 'Worse Than Rodney King'
"Robin, it's our understanding and you and I have covered crime new year's for years and you've covered some of the most high profile criminal cases in America. I have not seen a case like this where even in the aftermath, the immediate aftermath back on January 7th, where they would not even release the incident report. So we have no idea what precipitated the traffic stop. We have no idea what the encounter was. As a matter of fact, we were all led to believe by police in the early days of this that the guy fled from police and said he was suffering, he was having a problem breathing. Well, now it turns out, according to our sources, that that video is going to show three full minutes. Of this man literally being beaten to death at the hands, the literal hands of those police officers. Todd, it's outrageous. And again, I defer to Memphis police chief CJ Davis. In this interview that she did with CNN, she was very measured in her words, but she was very honest. And she said that the taste is really bad. She was outraged. And the other quote that she said was, you will see acts that defy humanity and that the video in her words is alarming. And I'm going to defer here to the police chief because I haven't seen the video, but I'm going to trust her. And if she says that it's worse than the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, then Todd, we have to we should be going with that, I do not like videotape that's taken out of context. I was not just a snippet. I'd like to see the whole thing like you're saying, what led up to the original stop of the driver, how to see then get away, how do they encounter him a second time, what precipitates the beating and his mother, by the way, says that her son was quote beat like a pinata.
Charlie Savage's Reporting Suggests Bad News for George Soros Soon
"The deep states freaking out about something they leak a story that says the exact opposite to these idiots So when this story in The New York Times popped this morning excuse me yesterday morning January 26th I saw it this morning By Charlie savage and Goldman attacking Bill Barr the former attorney general who's not even in the job anymore And John Durham I thought to myself what do you think The same thing I thought You applied the dipsy doo flipper and you're like holy Moses Dora must have found something Now I've been hard on John dorm the investigations as far as turned up no legitimate action whatsoever except the couple dog cases in court against sussman they lost which was a real case but it was a dog case in court the case was legit But it was a dog because they didn't get enough people to flip But I think we may have been a little hard on Durham And if Adam Goldman and savage are attacking them folks I think he found something I'm going to go over again what I think he found I'm not going to read the whole thing But if you read The New York Times piece he's talking about alleged hacked Russian intelligence memos in this piece These two authors these deep states stenographers And what he's saying here is that Dora may have found the connection between some of these hacked alleged hacked intelligence members in George Soros And then they go on to say but don't worry there's nothing to see here Basically John dorms going after George Soros for no reason which if you read Goldman and savage strategically you'll understand that means what It means the exact opposite that something's about to drop about George Soros
FOX News: Authorities Warn Tyre Nichols Video 'Will Be Hard to Watch'
"The police chief who has seen the video says it defies humanity. It's heartbreaking. Here's a report from Fox News channel sharing the details of all of these events that led to the death of 29 year old Tyree Nichols. Hours from now Memphis police are expected to release body cam footage from the night of Tyree Nichols death and authorities are warning that video will be hard to watch now. This all started on January 7th when the 29 year old was pulled over by Memphis police on suspicion of reckless driving. What we're about to play here is a recording from the police scanner from part of the confrontation. Listen. We got one more big run. Pull over. He's running around. We have one running on foot. He's fighting at this time. The nickels families legal team has seen the footage and they say it shows the 5 officers beating Tyree for three minutes. He died in the hospital three days after the incident. Now, cities across the nation are bracing anticipating the tape could trigger civil unrest with the methodist police chief giving this morning. This is not just a professional failing. This is a failing of basic humanity toward another individual. This incident was heinous, reckless, and inhumane. And in the vein of transparency, when the video is released in the coming days, you will see this for yourselves. None of this is a calling card for inciting violence or destruction on our community or against our citizens.
Oklahoma investigators identify body as missing 4-year-old
"Oklahoma's chief medical examiner has positively identified a body found earlier this month as that of a four year old girl. The body has been identified as four year old Athena brownfield, who investigators allege was beaten to death on Christmas Day by the man who was supposed to be taking care of her, but the girl wasn't reported missing until January 10th when a postal carrier found her 5 year old sister alone outside the home of Ivan and elissa Adams and surreal about 70 miles southwest of Oklahoma City. The four year old's body was found 7 days later, buried on property the atoms is used to own about 21 miles away. 36 year old Ivan Adams was arrested in Arizona on charges of murder and child neglect. His wife is charged with two counts of child neglect. I'm Donna warder
Auschwitz anniversary is marked as Europe's peace is again shattered by war
"An Auschwitz anniversary is marked as peace in Europe again in shuttered by war. Survivors of Auschwitz birkenau are gathering to commemorate the 78th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi German death camp amid horror that yet another war has shuttered peace in Europe. The site in southern Poland, which, during World War II, was under the occupation of German forces, became a place of systematic murder of Jews, poles, Roma and others, in all some 1.1 million people were killed there. Most of them choose, before it was liberated by Soviet troops on January 27th, 1945, among those expected
Is Trump Being Set up by Going Back to Facebook, Twitter & Instagram?
"So what does he do? What does he do? Where does he go? Here's a text message on the MyPillow text line from Michigan, I hope Trump does join any of them. They only want him on there so they can bash him for telling the truth. Because he puts out mean tweets, so he needs to stay off of them and laugh at everybody else and stick to truth social. The argument against that, though, is that he reaches many, many, many more millions of people through Twitter and Facebook and Instagram. So where are you with this? I mean, a lot of people are pushing back against the idea of Trump going back. A text from Alaska, returning to those platforms will send the message that those platforms can abuse their discretion and get away with it. I mean, let's just look at this big picture for a minute. What changed now? After two years of being banned, what has Trump done that would warrant his return to those platforms has he apologized for anything? And you know me, I'm the Trump supporter. I'm not saying he should. I'm saying from their standpoint, what has changed? He hasn't backed off of anything he said. He doesn't back down off of his belief that the election was stolen from him. He hasn't backed down over his insistence that he did nothing wrong on January 6th. What changed? Why would Facebook, why would Instagram why would Twitter suddenly want him to return to those platforms? I smell a rat. And I can guarantee you, they're setting him up. Again,

Charlie Assesses Kevin McCarthy's Latest Actions as Speaker
"This constant controversy about whether or not Eric swalwell, who almost assuredly slept with a Chinese spy and Adam Schiff, who was just a pathological liar, should be on the house Intel committee. Now Kevin McCarthy, who many of you in this audience, you were rather brutal and dare I say it cruel towards Kevin McCarthy, made a promise when he wanted to become Speaker of the House that he was not going to put swalwell or shift on the committees. And he's making good on that promise, and the Democrats are losing their mind. The Speaker of the House has the ability to block certain members of Congress from going on committees. Kevin McCarthy is using that power and he is basically sending a memo and a message to the Democrats. You guys keep on screening us the way you did with the January 6th committee. You try to block some of our members from committees. We're not going to play ball with that. We're not going to allow Elon Omar and swalwell and Schiff to be able to sit on these Intel committees that require not just access to you have access to confidential information, but they leak it regularly. They abuse it, and by the way, Omar was foreign affairs just to be clear. Who's to say that Eric swalwell, who slept with the Chinese spy, would not continue to misuse or abuse classified or confidential information. Isn't that the whole saga right now is around the mishandling of classified information? Let's go to cut 57, McCarthy speaks about his decision to keep Adam Schiff from sitting on the intelligence committee, play cut 57. What Adam Schiff did use his power as a chairman and lied to the American public, even the inspector general said it. When Devin Nunes put out a memo, he said it was false. When we had a laptop, he used it before an election to be politics and say that it was false and said it was the Russians. When he knew different. So no, he does not have a right to sit on that. So yes, he can serve on a committee, but he will not serve on Intel, because it goes to the national security of America. And
Unvaccinated Pilots File Lawsuit Against United Airlines
"Friendly skies. Interview with an unvaccinated pilot suing United Airlines. Roger Simon is the author of the piece. It is about Tom Floyd, a United Airlines pilot. And here is the report he is among 30 unvaccinated pilots flight attendants ramp service workers, and other personnel who, as of January 19th, are suing United Airlines because in the words of their complaint they have been fired, placed on unpaid leave or otherwise had their careers at United limited or terminated without just compensation. In this regard, I don't believe united has been worse than others, but when it comes to destructive policies and wokeness and cowardice United Airlines is near or at the top, they also vowed last year or the year before, I believe it was last year that they would reserve half their places in their flight training school, their pilot training school for women and non whites. So you should just know should you decide to fly the fly united. That they are terminating qualified pilots, and they will be hiring presumably some, not all, some unqualified pilots.
Dissecting the Relationship Between China and Taiwan
"The last thing I discovered about China that I want to bring up. We had Taiwan contact guidelines. You got rid of them, but it took forever. It's sort of like the kaj root. I think I'm saying that right about the law outside of the law to make sure we don't get the Taiwan. Do you think when you left the Department of State, we had corrected the over protection of Chinese feelings at the expense of Taiwan? We'd made real progress. Now this is one of the things I'm very proud of. We for decades had been so afraid of the Chinese Communist Party and their response, right? You send a diplomat to the island and they demarc year, they scream and we'd allowed that to put us in the corner and cower. We had a set of rules that basically said, no, no American can meet with senior Taiwanese officials. It was possible, but it was essentially a ban. It took me till the very end. I can't remember 18th, 19th, 20th of January somewhere late in the term to actually get it fixed because I let the department run its process. Every time I set a memo downstairs and come back different and finally I just said, I won't tell you exact words I used. But in the end, we got it done. And we put the relationship in a place that respects the independence and autonomy of Taiwan in a way that is wholly appropriate for the United States of America in 2023.
A&W Is Putting Pants On Its 'Polarizing' Mascot Rooty
"Apparently, Rudy RO TY Rudy, the great root beer bear. Yes. Is he a root bear? They call him a great root bear. Is this the mascot of hires root beer? A and W restaurants. You've all seen this bear for 60 years. Well, sadly, have to wear pants. What? People didn't want to see his root. America, this is a treat from a and W restaurant. So America, let's talk. Since 1963, Rudy the great root bear has been our beloved spokes bear. We knew people would notice because he's literally a 6 foot tall bear wearing an orange sweater. But yes, we get it, even a mascot's lack of pants can be polarizing. So therefore we've decided that Rudy will wear jeans going forward. Oh, he's gonna look cool and change. Don't look good. After all, he is unbearably cute and in Paul to replace. He sure is. But this is a standard cartoon thing. We are right. Donald duck doesn't wear pants? Rudy will continue to champion good food and good times for many years. I'm all for this. I don't need to be looking at these mascots getting all turned on.

"Today's Martin Luther King day, and the preceding weekend, are seen as a time of reflection and giving in the United States, which is why the African American museum of Philadelphia is hosting an evening, bringing together around 30 volunteers to pack up care packages for the city's homeless. Tonight we are launching the big give back, which is a fun ode to James Brown's is the big payback. This is Nina ball. Director of programming for the African American museum of Philadelphia. This is just the beginning and not the end. The museum is accepting donations, monetarily, as well as in person donations all throughout the rest of the month of January and will make another give to the center for hope at the end of our campaign. We started out with a circle of what's your name and why do you give back? So we set the tone of caring of love in the spirit and the legacy of doctor Martin Luther king and the war on poverty. We're just here to do our part. The event in central Philadelphia is one of hundreds of volunteering opportunities taking place today and over the last weekend across the country. All with the memory of doctor king in mind. When they wanted his day to be a day of service as opposed to just another day off from work, I got it. This is jewel of volunteer docent at the museum. And this is what I believe doctor king would have wanted and what he was about community service. He was a community giver. But it's not just Martin Luther King's general sense of community. Morgan Lloyd, who coordinates volunteers here at the Philadelphia museum, says the volunteering tradition is in keeping with the lesser known legacies of the one time leader of America's civil rights movement. We all know MLK as our civil rights crusader. But also one of his biggest fights that people often don't discuss is poverty. Simultaneously we're thinking of the poor people's march. We have the ability to continue his mission and to look out for those who do not necessarily have the ability to entirely look out for themselves or if they

"Months of technical talks between EU and UK officials on how to make the Northern Ireland protocol flexible, there's now political momentum towards it reaching an agreement. The protocol is part of the UK EU Brexit deal that keeps Northern Ireland aligned with some EU trade rules. The progress follows an agreement on sharing trade data allowing the EU to access UK IT systems. Discussions are now due to take place with the objective of Ireland, the UK and the European Union, forging a deal ahead of the 19th of January. That's the deadline for calling fresh storm and assembly elections in the hope that the Northern Ireland executive can be restored. While Amanda Ferguson is a journalist based in Belfast, she joins me on the line now. Amanda, thanks very much for coming on monocle 24. Can you refresh our memories over the power sharing agreement in Northern Ireland and why it's fallen apart? Okay, well essentially following the 1998 good Friday agreement, there was a mandatory coalition government system set up for sort of previous political enemies to share power together in the interests of everybody in Northern Ireland. No, it hasn't been without its issues. Nearly half of the time that it's supposed to have been operational, it's been collapsed through various different crises. We had a three year impasse between 2017 and 2020 over a botched green energy scheme and treatment of the Irish language and then the government, the UK and the Irish governments helped to bring around a new deal in January of 2020 to get storm and back up and run in. Now the politicians at storm were almost immediately thrown into the COVID pandemic crisis in the handling of that. So nothing really much has been implemented from the new decade new approach deal and then since February of last year at the DUP decided to start taking action to withdraw from the institutions at storm and over its objections to the post Brexit trading arrangements that apply to Northern Ireland that don't apply to Scotland, England and Wales. So we've been out without fully functioning governments since February of last year. We had an election in May, which was an historic result in for the first time in the Irish Republican Party emerged as the largest party in Northern Ireland and it's 101 year history for the first time and that was going to happen, but we haven't managed to get strong and up and running since then. So at the moment, government is sort of slow and being run by civil servants. We have no ministers in place. And so what happens then at the election on January 19th, if there's no deal, then does the election take place? Well, this is the thing. We know that the UK and the EU made that data sharing earlier in this week and that was the sort of reset that was going to sort of pave the way for these new negotiations and further issues that need to be resolved with the post Brexit trading arrangements. Everybody acknowledges that there are issues with the protocol, lots of businesses are benefiting from it, but it is causing a headache for other people and all those issues are yet to be resolved. Now the UK and the EU are due to meet again this Monday coming. But I don't actually think that there's really a sense that there's a big breakthrough moment imminent. We know that the Secretary of State has delayed a fresh election on a number of occasions now at the next deadline is the 19th of January, so I'd imagine that there'll be some sort of fudge put through to perhaps buy a little bit more time. If they are in the UK, haven't resolved all the outstanding issues, which doesn't seem particularly likely at the moment. How politically dangerous is this Amanda? Could we see a return to tensions on the border to the troubles as they were? No, I don't think. So, you know, this is often said about Northern Ireland, you know, that it's going to go back to the troubles. It's not the same circumstances as it was in 1969. It's 2023 now. While we've had 25 years of relative pace, the issues that are exercising people, the most at the moment are around reconciliation and about the normal functioning of government, the issue that the men British unionist democratic unionist party, the DUP, has is that it views the protocol, the fact that essentially Northern Ireland remains in the EU single market. It views Northern Ireland being economically and constitutionally damaged by the protocol. No, the other parties, the non unionist parties would view the protocol as something that sort of mitigates against the worst impacts of Brexit and that both Northern Ireland's economy. Everyone acknowledges that it needs to be made more practical that there are businesses that aren't enjoying success from it. And it needs to be resolved however the DUP are saying they're not going to reenter at local power sharing government until they stand in issues with the protocol resolve. Now the threat of violence is never far away whenever it comes to Northern Ireland, but I think that perhaps it's overblown whenever people say that sort of thing, I don't think there's any appetite for that. Within this particular jurisdiction, I think most people just want to get on with them a functioning health service opportunities for their children and so on, however, it should be noted that while Northern Ireland is a place of pace it is still a contested place. So there are many hundreds of thousands of people within Northern Ireland that don't feel British that don't want to remain part of the UK. And what Brexit has done is accelerated the conversations that already existed about Irish unity. So I don't think they are going to go away anytime soon. But the census figures and the polling suggests that there isn't a clear big majority for that at this point. But I'd imagine that a border pool or a referendum on reunification of Ireland will come at some point in the future, but when that happens remains to be seen because we are in a state of flux at the moment where the demographics of Northern Ireland are changing that the political landscape across the island of Ireland is changing even in the Republic of Ireland. Who are in power in the north or would be if we had government, they said, look poised to enter government and the Republic of Ireland for the first time, which would make them cool

"Move to another story which has been moving quite a lot on Ukraine and Russia in the last couple of days, which is this attack just after midnight on New Year's Day when Ukraine launched a strike against Russian forces. The target was in the city of maquila in the Russian occupied region of Donetsk. There's a college building used to station Russian soldiers. It took a direct hit. The backlash, the scale of the attack was such that it was impossible for Russia to hold its tongue, but the fact remains is that a rare blame game has now ensued, hasn't it, questions being raised about lots of decisions that the Russians are taking. Well, this strike on my kiefer was one of the many strikes on the Russian military bases within the occupied Ukrainian territories in eastern and southern Ukraine in recent days, including around the new year. And the scale of Russian military casualties in the past couple of weeks have increased to such a level that the Russian authorities can no longer hide those. In December, the Ukrainian MOD said that the Russian military losses in Ukraine have been more than 17,000 people which is a huge number in just one month. This is more than the Soviet Army lost in the entire war in Afghanistan, which lasted for nearly ten years. So it's pretty much impossible for Russia to hide the scale of casualties in this war in Ukraine. And Ukraine believes that this is that it is in it is very much within its position to strike legitimate military targets, including locations where Russian soldiers are located. And yes, it does cause some problems for the Russian leadership as they have to explain of why this is happening and why these scales are why these casualties are so significant. But in my view, the Kremlin is willing to tolerate very significant casualties by the Russian forces to achieve their military objectives in Ukraine and the fact that all the 2nd of January just after the new year put in ordered to include civilian hospitals into the treatment of wounded military personnel is an indicator of that. What we seem to be seeing in addition to this is very, very loud supporters of the war and of Vladimir Putin, the likes of the commentator, yevgeny norin, and very well-known Russian war correspondent semyon pegov, have all highlighted this attack by the Ukrainians on Russia and have blamed not the Ukrainians, but Russia's own military failures, such as the suggestion that there's a large amount of ammunition stored next to where the soldiers were staying. And also the indication that the Russians were using mobile phones on a Ukrainian telephone network, which was very easy to give their location away. It seems rather strange, doesn't it that these such hawkish pro Putin voices are now beginning to ask questions. Why do you think that's happening? Well, there is this section in the Russian society of extreme hawks, who wants more war on Ukraine and who aren't happy with the, with the way the war is ongoing. And not just more war on Ukraine, but more war on the west. There are types and Russian television who are talking about the both Russia, needing to attack cities such as London or Washington, D.C., because they claim that this is not a war between Russia and Ukraine, but rather Russia and the west or Russia and NATO. So there is this section in the Russian society who are disappointed by the fact that Russia is not using all of the resources available for this war and is fighting in their view how heartedly. And they want more war and more war efforts to be applied in this war in Ukraine. That's why they're blaming the Kremlin and Putin for lack of decisiveness in these military decisions. Hello.

"I don't think the Justice Department goes as far as to prosecute them. So I mean, essentially what you're saying is that the U.S. is irrevocably divided, as is the Republican Party itself. And this is seriously going to impact the process of government. I think the U.S. has divided. We've known this for many years, but of course, especially since 2017, I think it affects the idea that you can get new legislation through that you can get any advances, but and this is a really important caveat. The Biden administration was able when it had a democratic majority in the House and 50 50 Senate to pass the most important legislation in the United States since the 1960s. Legislation on infrastructure, legislation on healthcare, legislation on climate change. Legislation on social programs, legislation on education. In other words, the Biden administration was indeed able to build back better. Didn't get everything it wanted, but it got the most important legislation in 60 years. And the key thing here is that even the Trump fire breathers and the Republicans who want to tear everything down, I don't think they can touch that legislation. Just in the chamber, we had the other advances that you could talk about. Of course, our first woman vice president Kamala Harris, for example, the largest number of women in the U.S. Congress in American history, most of them Democrats, but some Republicans as well. And I think beyond the fact that Nancy Pelosi was a woman speaker, she was a very effective pragmatist. Despite the fact that you have all this division that we have talked about, despite all the screams and cries from the far right in the United States, Pelosi was able to remain speaker. She was able to hold her Democratic Party together and she was able to get enough Republican support where you did in fact get things done in these past two chaotic years. Even as you had folks who were threatened gridlock or something even worse. And she's not riding off into the sunset. I mean, she's going to still remain a member of the House. She'll still remain as a member from California. She'll be one of the leading voices still in the Democratic Party. I think two things happen here. I think you're getting a younger generation of lawmakers who are coming through and in our next interview, we might talk about who the Democrats are. But we are also getting, you know, at least we still got sanity in the house. There are still some Republicans, as well as Nancy Pelosi, who are still there who haven't been forced out. And so yeah, you've got a, you've got a dented American political system, some would say damaged. But there are enough people like Pelosi who are there who maintain the fact that the system can not and shall not fall. But of course, with each legislative session, there's always a round of retirements and the departure of some experienced politicians this year will reverberate very starkly in this divided Congress. I think that's true, especially on the Republican side, Georgina. There were two Republicans, for example, who served on the January 6th committee, Adam kinzinger of Illinois, he chose not to stand again this year. Liz Cheney, who had been the number three Republican in the House, was effectively driven out by the far right of the Republican Party lost her primary in Wyoming. There are other Republicans who had supported the impeachment of Donald Trump. They, of course, were pushed out. So I think the risk here is that the experienced voices you're losing. Are the pragmatists. They are the Republican pragmatist. And I think the party is going to face a choice. It's going to face a choice as it goes into the congressional elections. And the presidential election in 2024. How far do you want to go down this road? Of government by tweet. How far do you want to go down this road of government by right wing shouty TV networks? How far do you actually want to try to tear the house down, figuratively as well as almost literally, or do you come back to the fact that, look, America has stood against extremists for 230 years. And it's going to continue to stand against you. Scott, thank you very much indeed. That was Scott Lucas who I don't professor at the Clinton institute at university college Dublin.

Monocles December January double issue includes our annual soft power survey that ranks a nations that have committed to winning Friends with good diplomacy, cultural hits, and even national cuisine.

Beyond the survey, we look at which Icelandic brands are going international, meet the artists in Baghdad, who aren't their nation to be defined by more than turmoil and return to Kyiv to speak with Ukraine's foreign minister. This is a war for identity. This is the war between Russia as a state and the people of Ukraine. I think it's impossible to win a war against the people.

"On today's program, think of any major band or musician over the last few decades and almost all of them can trace their roots back to playing their first gigs in a small pub or club. It's where they cut their teeth, throwing out their sound and winning their first audiences. Arguably, it was these venues that suffered the most during the pandemic as what modest incomes they did have were wiped out. Well, this week, the spotlight shines right back on them. And joining me now from Huddersfield is sybil bell. The founder of independent venue week, good morning sibyl. Good morning and how are you? Very well. Thank you. And delighted to hear about independent venue week. What's it all about? It's really a chance to shine a spotlight and celebrate the people and the venues all around the country that really give artists and crew their first chance to be to build a career in the music industry. These spaces take all the risks with bands that perhaps people haven't really heard of, providing a really vital, vitally important service to their community in terms of bringing arts and culture. So it's a really great chance to give a stage to the people that give stages to the artists. Indeed, just explain to us just how important places like these are when it comes to bringing new voices and new sounds to the world. Well, they're absolutely are because if you look at if you look if you work backwards and look at artists that are headlining, stadiums or arenas or even festivals. Any artist worth their salt has started out in a grassroots music venue. It's so important to learn your craft somewhere safe, where the venue owners and operators understand that. They understand that they're not always going to get packed venues as bands just start out. They understand that the artists are going to make mistakes. It's like everything in life making mistakes is really important. It's just about how you do it and how you deal with those mistakes and how you build on it. And these grassroots music venues are such a vital part of that. And it's not just about the artist that's on stage. It's also about people wanting to work behind the scenes, the crew, the tour managers. And it really is a melting pot of trial and error, exciting music and really learning your craft. And for communities all around the country, those communities that do have venues, there is some way for people to go to discover new music that's not on a screen that's not on television or your phone. And it's just a really great chance. It's almost like real life social media before we had social media. This is what people did. They went out. They went to a venue and it's much more than just about the music you see what people are wearing, you look at the artwork on the walls. You immerse yourself in a local subculture really. And without that, I don't really really understand how we would continue to be able to have a thriving music industry. Tell us a little bit about how hard you've been hit with the pandemic. Or rather, let's focus on the recovery because at the moment we still have tours and gigs being canceled at the last minute because I will run the band has got COVID or that the capacity is only ever half full. I mean, how much help do independent venues need at the moment? Well, it's been the toughest periods of pretty much everybody as well. It's in the toughest period for them. But I think what COVID really did demonstrate is how much of the creative industries and music especially is built around freelancers and people on project cycles. A lot of people that work in venues are freelance, or they're part time, they have other jobs. A lot of art is most artists, if not all artists, and they first start out, have other jobs. And when you can't play or perform or work in a venue, that's an income stream taken away straight away from you. And the venues themselves very often are buildings that are least not many people own there, they knew some do but make most don't. And depending on who your landlord is, you know, you face the last 18 18 to 24 months in very precarious position. And arts cancel England and DCMS really did pull all the stops out to provide support. But I think in this latest round of ongoing restrictions where things haven't been very clear cut, it's been much harder for venues to keep going because some shows that were due to happening spring 2020 are on their fourth reschedule if you can imagine. So people are working incredibly hard behind the scenes to try and find places for these artists to play in dates for them to play and then that time coming round and somebody in that either in the artist's group or the crew or the venue has got COVID and things have to be curtailed. So it's been particularly tricky. I think for us with independent and unique this year, we really felt that we might be able to have some in person shows last year we were completely decimated and had to turn everything digital, which was very much against the ethos of IBW we've created IW so that people will get out of their screens and back into venues and back out in public. So it was tough last year, but I think what we're seeing this year is slightly more optimism NHS has done an incredible job with the vaccination rollout and there is a measured sense of positivity and certainty coming back gradually now. And I think a lot of people are using the week itself. We're hearing from our venues and artists and promoters that people want this to be the week that they really come back out in for. Bill, thank you so much for joining us. That's all we have time for today's program.

And Germany has appointed a commissioner for the acceptance of sexual and gender diversity.

Those are the days hit lines now back to you Tom. Thank you very much indeed, Marcus, and it is just 60 minutes past midday here in London. We have 60 minutes past 7 a.m. in Washington, D.C., and it's to the United States we had now, where president Joe Biden has confirmed that he intends to honor his commitment to make an African American woman, his first nomination to the Supreme Court. Biden's nominee would replace the liberal justice, Stephen breyer, who's expected to retire this summer. Well, let's get more on this now. I'm delighted to say we're joined on the line by Julie Norman, co director of university college London's center on U.S. politics. Welcome back to the briefing Julie always good to hear from you. And it's true, isn't it? That Biden had pretty much sort of telegraphed his intention should there be the opportunity to appoint a new justice. What do you expecting this succession to look like? Well, Tom, yes, we did hear from Biden really early on in the campaign that this would be one of his pledges for if he became president would be to appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court to be the first black woman appointed. He repeated that pledge throughout his campaign and The White House confirmed yesterday that he indeed plans to stick by that. We hear from Democrats that they're hoping to move this nomination and confirmation process through pretty quickly. So it's possible that everything could be confirmed by June or July when the current term ends. It's important to note that this nomination won't change the overall makeup of the court, which is still split 6 three with a conservative majority. But it is still important for Democrats to maintain those seats that are left meaning for their priorities and interests. Biden has a short list that's kind of buzzing around with different names who are on it. There's a few individuals who are expected to be very high on that list. One is a katangi Brown Jackson. She is a graduate Harvard Law School. She clerked for justice breyer in the past, which is a pretty notable link just with him retiring now. And she's currently on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia circuit. So she was appointed there by Biden, which means she just went through the Senate confirmation process last year and did so with bipartisan support. Another potential candidate is Leon Kruger. She also clerked in the past for another justice John Paul Stevens, graduate of Yale law school and currently sits on the California Supreme Court. So those are a couple of the names that are being discussed, but obviously there are others as well that are presumably on Biden's list. So we'll probably hear more about that selection process in these coming days and weeks. Yeah, Julian. I've got a playful question to ask you about potentially a potential appointment to this role, which I'll do in a moment. But just to go back to that point, you said about the 6 three split it doesn't change that fundamentally. To what extent though and maybe we need to cite appropriately, given we're talking about the law courts, some precedent here, does the characters, the personnel matter, granted, it doesn't change the 6 three, but does the nature of the appointment mean that that could move the dial on issues which we know are real hot button ones, you know, robust way, this kind of thing. Is it the case that if there's a new young kind of left leaning or a liberally inclined firebrand, that could kind of, I don't know, change the potential for something really extreme to happen, like with the rover versus wade ruling or.

"Is the globalist time Georgina Godwin and the time here in London is 7 47. It's 9 47 in Helsinki, which is where we head next to get a roundup of stories from the Nordics with Monaco's correspondent in Finland Petri berts off. Betty good morning to you. Good morning, Georgina. Now, Norway's premiere has been criticized after inviting the Taliban to the country. Tell us more about this because it's caused a huge controversy there. Yes, it's always nice to start the morning with the Taliban, isn't it? So the Norwegian premiere invited the Taliban for talks in Norway, of course, Norway has reached history of settling conflicts and talking to all the parties in the conflict. But he has still become under fire for even giving Taliban a chance. We should bear in mind that no western government has still as of yet acknowledged Taliban and the Norwegian opposition is saying that there's no point talking to them about human rights. It's not going to have any effect. It just wasting taxpayers money paying for their private plane to fly the Taliban members 15 of them all men, of course, to Norway. And there's one opposition politician who even said that to talk to extreme Islamists about human rights and women's rights is as naive as believing in Santa Claus and Easter Bunny. Yeah. I interviewed in Afghan ampere, a woman MP yesterday. It was absolutely heartbreaking, but she was saying that there does need to be some level of engagement because of the people there who are dying they need help. Exactly. That is what the Norwegian premier stories is saying that like it or not the situation in Afghanistan is critical. 1 million Afghan children at the risk of starvation to death and just a very dire humanitarian situation. So you have to talk to whoever is in charge. Let's move on to Finland. There's been a disastrous election result for the true Finns or basic Finns. Tell us more. Yes, that is correct. So this is a story in housing in Sonoma to Finland's main daily. About the recent elections we had in Finland regional elections. That was interesting, because it was the first time that these elections were organized, Finland didn't use to have these healthcare regions before. And the true Finns party, of course, the right wing populist who have been spotted that's been polling at about 20% for the past couple of years. Only received 11% of the vote. It was a disastrous election result for them. They have to do a lot of soul searching now looking at what went wrong. Of course, in a typical fashion to that part of their chairman. Blaming the media for raising wrong points in the debates leading up to the election. But it's quite funny. I mean, some of the points that they campaigned on this party had nothing to do with this healthcare elections. They talked about how they want to bring the petrol prices down and immigration and stuff that has nothing to do with these elections. So I think they need to also look at their own policies a little bit. Yeah, absolutely. So petrol prices down in Finland's skirts up in sweet and tell us about this story. Yeah, this is a really interesting story. This is often blooded. So a Swedish tabloid, very popular tablet paper. So apparently there's an international English school in the town of taboo in Sweden. And they have decided that some of their female students where skirts that are just simply too short. And the school has begun actually distributing extra clothes for their students to wear and their headmaster who says here that the clothes that you're wearing school need to be whole, clean and they can not they should not disturb the teaching environment. So I don't know what does it say about the teachers in that school I'll leave it at that. Extraordinary and you've got to do the arm test to figure out how long the skirt is. Yeah, exactly. So to determine if the skirt is too short or not, they have to do an arm test basically just stand with your arms hanging straight down and end with clenched fist and if the skirt is shorter than where you are at the bottom of your face then it's too short. Let's finish by looking at UFOs. I love this story. Okay, yeah, this is another Swedish story. It kind of strange stories from Sweden. I have to say, this is in Sweden's main daily dog and this is story about a UFO sighting in the town of Husqvarna. And he was the only I had no idea, but apparently it's true. They have nearly 300 reports of you as UFOs every year in Sweden. Of course, UFO just means on identified flying object, not necessarily extraterrestrials. But usually they always investigate this and they always figure out, okay, that was whatever it was. It was, but it was not it was identified in the end. But there's one incident where they were not able to identify with this flying object wise. And it's described as sort of a triangle of lights, yellow, yellowish, white, light sources, that rotate in symbiosis, horizontally in the air that was spotted in a they were not able to determine what it was. The truth is out there, Petrie, thank you. That was Petrie Burt's off talking to us from Helsinki. And this is the globalist a monocle 24..

"That you have to abide by the rules. It's part of democracy that we look at this. And we say, well, you know, what were the people in charge doing? And it's right that we're asking questions about this. And how is it being viewed in other countries? Well, it's interesting. If you look around the papers in Europe today, so for instance, in France, liberation talks about Boris Johnson as saying he's the actor radu tabla and they say that although he's been in the hot seat for weeks and he came out fighting as they describe him as taking on the role of a showman again, which has brought him victories in the past and allowed him to get out of embarrassing situation. So they're seeing that looking at prime minister's questions yesterday and this kind of the fighting attitude again. And similarly, dash standard in Austria asks, is this last hours in office? Johnson's waiting for the party gate report. And he said, it could be the last hours or days for Boris Johnson's British prime minister, but they're saying that yesterday it seemed like the calm before the storm while they were still while he was still waiting for this report and that he came out again with the support of many of his backbench MPs and talking about the level of noise. And also there, they're mentioning the Afghanistan question as well. And finally, earlier we were talking about how the South Korean election has become slightly farcical. I wonder what they think about politics in Britain right now. Well, yes. I'm told of the passed on to me that I've read the Korean myself. In the chosen elbow, which is a conservative newspaper in South Korea, they are describing this scandal in Britain using the concept of nairo Nambu and forgive my pronunciation if that's not right. But apparently there's a literal meaning this expression in Korean means when I do it, it's romance when you do it, it's adultery. And it's a term that is a term about this is used to describe double standards and hypocrisy. For some reason they find that this fitting of the British prime minister Terry, thank you very much indeed. That was the political journalist and author terrestris. And now here's what else we're keeping an eye on today. An alliance led by Kurdish militia has regained full control of a prison in northeastern Syria, which was seized by Islamic State militants a week ago. At least a 181 people have reportedly been killed in clashes since IS tried to stage a mass breakout at the prison. All the inmates in the jail have now surrendered.

"With car value and also look at the printed Brazilian press. More from Fernando obese later in the program, all that right here on the briefing with me, Marcos hippie. We start today in Ukraine as Western Allies continue to step up military preparations in case of Russian invasion. U.S. president Joe Biden has threatened to impose sanctions on Moscow and UK foreign secretary at least trust has called on allies to do more to pressure Russia and support Ukraine. Let's get the latest on the ground now with Monaco's team in Kyiv, who have just touched down at Boris bell international airport. On the line, our monocle space Reynolds and Chris jomer good afternoon to you. What is the mood where you are? Thanks, Marcus. Yes, we have just arrived, so it'll take a little bit of a while for us to get a full sense of the mood. I can tell you that Ukraine is a little bit snowy, very different from London in that sense. And it is a little bit surreal to come into an airport that is entirely fully functioning, if you will, an entirely normal, somewhat quiet, I would say, there are flight was relatively full, but that said, it's the only direct flight from London in a day. So we're going to be going out after this to get a real sense of the mood in the capital Kyiv itself. What about what do you think page? Yeah, echo everything that Chris has said, I think what we're thinking about right now is just the kind of story that we're looking to tell. Of course at the moment it seems Kyiv is not an imminent danger of tanks rolling in, but it's likely or it's in the realms of possibility at least that Kyiv is going to get dragged into this at some point. So what are people on the ground thinking are they making plans to leave? Do they want to stay, but also let's get the picture from Kyiv's cultural scene. It's sort of been having this quite flourishing moment in the last few years. So what are the owners of recently open hotels, restaurants, what our filmmakers, those that work in publishing and magazines? What are they thinking? They've just put so much investment into the city. There was a kind of a lot of hope I think at the end of last year. So do they feel like this can endure? And what are their feelings? What about you Chris? Are you hoping to tell a similar story? What are you looking for? Well, I'm kind of interested in a similar story but also from the politician's perspective. I think what's interesting at this point is what Ukraine wants from the west in this very delicate moment. They've been walking when you listen to politicians before we arrived here. They've been walking a very fine line between sort of talking up this threat from Russia asking for weapons and reinforcements from the west, keeping NATO membership open, but then at the same time, they've been aggressively playing down suggestions that war is imminent as you just, as you just mentioned page, president zelensky has argued that the threat of war immediately plays into Putin's hands by creating creating a panic and instability within the Ukraine, the foreign ministry criticized the withdrawal of diplomatic support staff, saying that was a hasty move. And then from a diplomatic standpoint, I think what's interesting is it's not just about NATO membership. The foreign minister here said yesterday that Ukraine wants to be seen firmly as an equal and part of the west not of the east. For me, that raises questions that's worth asking here about what are the risks within the Ukraine of such comments? Are they potentially alienating some eastern portions of the country that do feel more culturally and even politically aligned with Russia? Does that create a bit of a thrift a shift at a danger within Ukraine, the schism between different parts? Absolutely. And I think the final thing that we'll be keeping an eye on today is kind of the media deployment in and around Kyiv. There's a lot of international media companies that are coming here to tell the story. There's also a lot of pressure on local media. I know a lot of journalist that we've spoken to recently have been absolutely inundated. So how are they feeling? And also how are the locals feeling with all of this kind of media attention as well? We're yet to go out there and kind of put microphones in people's faces, but it will be interesting to see how they respond how receptive they are to our questions. So I guess that's what we're going to see in the next few days. So back to you Marcus. Thank you very much. Patreon also increased Gemma care there and we'll be hearing more from them throughout this week here on Monaco 24. No, the U.S. president Joe Biden and other western leaders have warned that there will be enormous consequences for the world should Russia invade Ukraine. But how likely is it that Moscow will give the order to send troops into Ukrainian territory? I'm joined to know by general sir Richard sheriff who served as NATO's deputy supreme allied commander in Europe between 2011 and 2014, sir Richard is also the author of a war with Russia and urgent warning from senior military command. Welcome to the broker I'm sorry, should you play a key role in defending Europe against Russian aggression in your role as naso? How grave is the current threat? This is the most dangerous moment for Europe, arguably since the invasion of chuck Silva Akira in 1968. President Putin is holding a gun to NATO's head. Telling NATO to back off to extract their Lance from the those countries of Eastern Europe, which joined the alliance after the collapse of the Warsaw Pact. He has got really significant forces and highly capable forces massing on the borders of Ukraine both from the western from the north from the eastern from the north. And he's got limited time. He can not keep them there indefinitely. It's very expensive to maintain forces at high readiness for such a long time. He would want, I think, to do something before the spring fall. And so this is really dangerous. When you served as NATO's deputy supreme allied commander in Europe, did you ever think that we would one day get into this situation? What was clear after the invasion of Crimea in 2014 was that Putin had brought the politics of blood and iron back into Europe. He had changed the boundaries of Europe by force. That was a real wake up moment or should have been a real wake up moment for NATO and the west. I think before that you could argue that the invasion of Georgia in 2008 was another indicator. Now the reality is that Putin threatens Europe in a way that was not the case up in the early years of this century. What conversations will the NATO command be having at the moment? What do you think? Well, I hope that considering what they need to do to demonstrate really determine resolve that NATO will stop at nothing to defend the alliance, the land borders, the airspace and the sea lines of communication of their lots. They will be thinking very carefully about what they should do bilaterally for Ukraine. I think they can not do anything as an alliance. But the most important focus must be on the defense of their lives..

"For us today Fernando? Hello, tone. Today we're heading to a country with a vowel rich capital. Stay tuned. More from Fernando later as well. All that ahead here on the briefing with me Tom We start today in the United States, where the Supreme Court has rejected a request by former president Donald Trump to block the release of White House records to the congressional committee in charge of investigating the January 6th capitol riots. Well, I'm joined now for more on this by Julie Norman, who's the co director of university college London center on U.S. politics and alongside me here in studio one is Monica's news editor Chris chermak Chris and Julie good afternoon to you both. Julie, let me actually start with you. Just bring us back up to speed here. What happened exactly? What are the documents in question that this ruling was concerned with? Sure. So the congressional panel in the house that's investigating the incidence of January 6th has been trying to get access to some of Trump's documents for months. This is to investigate the lead up to the ride on January 6th, as well as how the riot played out and also Trump's lack of actions that day. Trump has been claiming executive privilege, which is a tradition in the United States. That means that the president's communications can not usually up for public review in this way. This has gone through several other lower courts and came to the Supreme Court. And so the Supreme Court ruled yesterday that indeed, in this situation, these documents were so important that they overrode the usual executive privilege and could in fact be turned over to the committee. Yeah, a hugely significant and Chris, let me bring you in, I guess on that sort of point. Why? Why is this? So critical. More than 700 documents we understand made available, do we have any sense of what the investigators actually hoping to find within this cache of documents? Well, maybe it makes sense to back up a little bit on that to say what this committee is trying to investigate. There's a number of tracts to it, but really the cores are one is looking at the day itself. January 6th, the insurrection, the security lapses, how this could have happened how people got into the capitol and the very specifics of that day and who was involved on the day those who are many who have been charged and are even sent to prison for their role in it. The second part of this investigation, though, is the politics, if you will. Who encouraged the riot who expected it to actually infiltrate the capital was there a plan to infiltrate the capital who knew about that if so. And related to that, the whole question about the election, who was attempting to actively subvert the election result, who was tramping attempting to prevent Joe Biden from taking office with claims of election fraud as we know Donald Trump has made consistently and consistently continues to make. And that's really where these 700 documents are so crucial, if you will, on that second point, what did Donald Trump know? What was going on in The White House in the run up to and on the day as Julie said there, exactly what was his role? Was he supporting this? Was he was he encouraging even though he publicly eventually told those supporters to go home, was he rejecting that in the run up, there was a number there were hours there where he was not telling his supporters to go home, not commenting on the riot in that sense quite as openly. So what was happening behind the scenes in The White House? And yes, even further, you know, this is what we don't know was there was he aware of what might be happening ahead of January 6th as well. These are all the sort of open questions about who knew what exactly and how much of a role did they have in it? Well, Julian, let me ask you specifically about that point as it relates to Donald Trump. What kind of a blow is this to his? Well, this campaign to keep these documents out of the spotlight. And then more broadly to his wider political ambitions, I guess we can't know until we see or learn more about the content of the document specifically on that latter point, but it must be it's certainly a blow, even in terms of his 24 ambitions, right? Well, it certainly may be, and again, this was the last attempt to block these documents from being released. I think Trump was counting on some of the justices he had appointed to the Supreme Court to maybe have his back on this. And in this case, we saw there was justices really abiding by their own virtues and integrity of office and letting these documents go forward. So he's at the end of the road with the documents. What this means for him moving forward though is still quite up in the air. It's important to note that the House committee is not a criminal prosecution kind of committee. They're investigating the incidents of that day and what led up to it. But what they can do is make a criminal referral to the Department of Justice if there is indications of wrongdoing. So the big question in Washington around a lot of the Trump documents is will there be enough here to encourage a criminal referral to justice regarding Donald Trump himself? If that is the case and justice decides to pursue it, that's really the only path by which Trump could legally have charges against him that would affect him running in 2024. Obviously, there could be political repercussions that could also affect his prospects for 2024. But the way that we have seen his base and his supporters, reacting to the events of January 6th and reacting to the committee, my sense is that the political corps percussion itself would not be enough to stop. And it would only be if it went to legal action, which is, again, quite further down the road from where we are now. But maybe just to jump in on that point, Julie, I think one of the things though, that is perhaps interesting for me to say is that it feels like Republicans in the U.S. have walked a very fine line, if you will of acknowledging that January 6th was abhorrent was something that should not have happened, but at the same time saying that we should not overly focus on it that it was a dark day in politics, but it was not the work of shady political forces whether in The White House or higher ups, if you will. It was not encouraged by politicians and was essentially just a protest gone wrong, if you will..
"this january" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"Back, America to the Hugh Hewitt show. It's a seat. States that occupy. Not only a place on our calendars. But a place in our collective memory. December 7th, 1941. September 11th, 2001. And January 6th, 2021. Say goodbye. Welcome back, America. It's Friday time for the movies. I just had to play for Sonny bunch the official movie critic of the Hugh Hewitt show, the vice president's memorably bad line. There are some lots of movies about Pearl Harbor and there are lots of movies about 9 11. I'm not sure there are any movies yet about January 6th. There might be in the future, but sunny bunch when a line is badly delivered. It's memorable and it sticks. What do you think about the vice president's delivery in her comparison since you're a theater critic? Just on a theatrical basis with 9 11 and Pearl Harbor day in January 6th. Yeah, sure. It's dumb. It's a dumb comparison and it shouldn't be made. And there were lots of dumb things about yesterday. Everybody like having the cast of Hamilton perform in front of live on Zoom for the whatever idiotic. It's idiotic. And the simple fact of the matter is January 6th didn't have to be as bad as 9 11 or Pearl Harbor day to be very, very bad. And the fact that there are so many Republicans who can not admit that what happened was very bad. I actually don't think there are many. I don't think there are many Republicans that they as an actual prime number. As an actual whole number, it was very bad. There were people with murderous intent. They might have killed the vice president and the speaker. There was a riot people died. I like to point out though, people don't remember where they were when the Las Vegas shooting happened, which is the most people killed in a single act of mass violence in the United States history by a lone gunman or Columbine. They don't. I mean, there are violent days in terrible days every day. Philadelphia fire yesterday I think 13 people died. I just wanted to point out that the vice president's poorly delivered line sticks that when you say something like that, the Sherman out there and the political theater people out there and the ad makers don't forget. Now, sunny, I want to go ahead. Well, I mean, look, since you bring it up, yes, I agree. Terribly, the liberal line, there's a reason Kamala Harris is a very, very bad politician who could not get out of the democratic primary and is going to get slaughtered if she tries to run for president. She's not a very good politician. That's fine. The fact that, again, the fact that the only Republicans on the floor of the House during the January 6th commemoration were Liz Cheney and her father Dick Cheney, who until very recently was pretty beloved by Republicans is a shocking thing.
"this january" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist
"The day's papers from Zürich, the latest business headlines and we'll find out why David Bowie's estate has sold a publishing rights to his entire body of work. That's all coming up on the globalist, like from London. First a quick look at what else is happening in today's news, military chiefs in Seoul claim that North Korea has fired an unidentified projectile into the sea. Japan's coast guard says it could potentially be a ballistic missile. The French president Emmanuel Macron has warned that he intends to make life difficult for people in France who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19. Meanwhile, Australians have reacted angrily to the news that the tennis star Novak Djokovic will play in the Australian open after he was given an exemption from vaccination rules. Stay tuned to monocle 24 throughout the day for more on these stories, but first, how do the world's most powerful nations avoid a nuclear war and stop the build up of weapons? The 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council have issued a joint statement warning that a nuclear war should be avoided at all costs. While I'm joined by Paul Rogers, international security adviser at open democracy good morning call. Good morning. Just tell us who was part of this statement and what did they say? Well, basically, there was a 5 tone of members which are the United States, Russia, China, the UK and France. And they essentially said, they were repeating what had been said by Gorbachev and Reagan right back in the mid 1980s as a summit in Geneva, that essentially, nuclear war can not be won, and must never be fought. And essentially it's a statement I think because they feel under pressure at present. The background of this is that when the non proliferation treaty was signed back in 1967, the 5 existing new capacitor the time those 5 are basically a ceded to it on the basis that they did not have to get rid of their nuclear weapons immediately, but they would do so in due course. The quid pro quo in a sense was that other states have signed it would never develop nuclear weapons. The problem with all of that is over the last 50 or so years, those 5 members have not given up their nuclear weapons. There was a decrease at the end of the Cold War, particularly substantial one by the Americans and the Russians. But actually, at present, all the 5 states are either modernizing their weapons or increasing the numbers or indeed a combination of both. So it's a statement of intent because they feel under pressure. Now the other thing is why is there this pressure now? Well, this is because quite separately from this, many states that have no desire to abuse weapons on against them have signed up to the United Nations treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons. And that was actually agreed finally agreed just last January. So the end result is the 5 permanent members who have been to put it politely rather dentistry are feeling some under diplomatic pressure from many other countries, which is why in the sense I think they've been rather forced to do this at this stage. This statement, though, no more buildup of weapons is one thing, but you mentioned that there has been no reduction in the number of weapons owned by these 5 states. No, they haven't. I mean, in strategic terms at the end of the Cold War, there was quite a serious decreases. I mean, we had an extraordinary situation in the mid 80s at the height of the Cold War, when the nuclear powers between them had something like 60 to 65,000 nuclear weapons. They overcome overkill was quite ridiculous. That's gone right down, but the Americans and the Russians still have at least 3000 each of many different sorts. Britain France and China have many hundreds, but the key thing is they're modernizing and in some cases actually increasing. China appears to be increasing as nuclear arsenal, Britain certainly is, but is basically gone completely silent on what it is doing, which is gained as a change for Britain. So really, it's essentially a question of do what I say, but not as I do. It is useful in some sense as a simple that the state are aware of the problems, but it doesn't fit in with their actual policies. And in fact, France in particular has a stated that there are certain which it would use a small number of new weapons, maybe even a single one. And although the British don't sign up to this, they don't admit it. That is basically anybody talk to you behind the scenes will say, well, that is British policy as well. So we're a long way from doing what should be done, but at least as a start, but the real issue is that nuclear weapons have always been about more than basic deterrence, mutually short destruction. And the idea of nuclear war fight has always been in there among those 5 states. Then, of course, you have the other four states that are not even part of this as India, Pakistan, Israel, of course, in North Korea. And then we have the potential problems over Iran coming up. It's good symbolically beyond that. I'm afraid an awful lot more needs to be done present. There isn't a clear sign that has it going to happen. Well, tell us a little bit more about those four who are not part of the group the nations which Pelé by their own rules. The news headlines a moment ago said that North Korea has fired an unidentified projectile into the sea in the last 24 hours. Japan's coast guard saying it could be potentially a ballistic missile. The likes of Pyongyang is not arguably going to listen to a well meaning statement from the 5 nuclear superpowers, is it? It isn't. Pyongyang, North Korea has a border with Russia, tiny one and a central border with China, both of which are large nuclear powers. It feels threatened by the United States. North Korea bluntly have played it very cleverly because if you go back 5 or 6 years, when Trump was campaigning for The White House, he said absolutely that while he was in The White House, North Korea would never be in a position to threaten the United States, the continental United States with an intercontinental ballistic missile. Well, frankly, it's just about at that point now. That failed. The end result is the Americans will basically try and negotiate a way out of the long term, but they are accepting that is one more addition to the nuclear powers. It Israel has had nuclear weapons probably since the early 1960s. It always denies it, but everybody knows it's got them. And the reality is that in Israel has no intention of giving them up. And because it has them is one of the reasons why the Iranians feel they should happen. Then, of course, you have Indian Pakistan, both of which have at least a hundred nuclear weapons and are still developing their delivery systems. So although we can say that 9 countries have nuclear weapons and something like a 185 don't, those 9 are not in the process of giving up, but we're going to have a year ahead of very tricky negotiations with Iran to see if they can be persuaded to go back to the agreement, which they would have a relief from sanctions, but wouldn't do other nuclear weapons. But of course their claim is that it's Trump who diffs that particular treaty. Why should they go back to it? So there are problems ahead, as I say, this is an issue which is welcome in a sense. It's a symbol of intent at a reminder of how bad nuclear war could be, but we've got a long way.
