"Today voters have had their say far right leaders, there are celebrating big gains in the European parliament. Here's italy's. Matteo Salvini speaking after the vote in Vogel the chicken. Today's vote to means that the rules in Europe change, not only for the decisions of the Italians, but also for the decisions of the French the English the Hungarians the polls, the Finns, the Swedes Danish. And so the new Europe is born, but it wasn't quite the far-right surge. Some were predicting either. Here's how our own or lebaron London, puts it, there is some key winners, and some very cure losers across the EU, as you mentioned Salvini has been celebrating Rian lapenne in France from the far right party has also been celebrating. And in terms of trends, we're seeing kind of the National Center, left and center, right parties, which have dominated the EU four well as long as anyone cares to remember. They do appear to have lost their majorities for the first time in the European parliament in the EU at each country. Markle each country's attorney its own very different results on the basis of. Different issues in Italy immigration in Germany climate change here in the UK. It was Brexit b word again that the word what does this all say about the strength of the far. Right. Across europe. You said, Matteo Salvini in Italy, and marine Le Pen in France parties did pretty well. But I mean, does that represent a wave across Europe? I think it's unfair to say it's the kind of wave that we had been told about so last week, we spoke about the Netherlands the wave didn't happen in the Netherlands in Spain. We see that the vox party didn't do as well as, as it was expected, but there are some successes Francaise as you point out, basically did very well in Poland and Hungary, they equally the ruling populist parties did very well. And I guess that's less surprising. Because in Hungary, you do have a country where the media is very much state controls. So that's the far right of, but the green parties around Europe are also celebrating. How did they do? Absolutely. They did extremely well in. In Germany, for example, in Arlon. And in the Netherlands for Germany, the green party, there managed to attract, a huge number of younger voters. And for younger voters climate change has really been an issue and the young people who were able to vote then really manage to make a change at the polls. You're in London Orla in the UK, and for a country that wasn't theoretically, even supposed to be having an e you election, there seemed appeal jubilation with the gains by the pro Brexit party. But what of these election results for the EU, even mean in London while they mean at twenty four hours of humiliation for the conservatives and equally for the labor party as well. It's been a disastrous election for the conservative party and what it says, in many ways, is that it was a protest vote as we said, it would be at people came out, sure who wanted have Brexit wanted to see the UK even the EU and they threw their house in the ring with Niger fresh going forward. Eight most probably means. That the contest for the Tory leadership, the next prime minister is very much going to be who can take on night for us. You can take on the Brexit party because this morning. Niger fresh is out saying, you know, our next our next road is the general election. And can you beat me on that one? So the conservatives are naturally, nervous about the sort of election. Power powered voting power that he has managed to attract sounds like it's going to be a wild show for those elections in the UK as for this vote turnout was said to be the highest twenty years. But what does that actually mean with the EU going forward? Yes. In many ways, it is hard to see their there are naturally, some very strong eurosceptic voices in parliament. But as we mentioned, perhaps, not as strong as we thought, I think, one of the key things is the centrist parties as we mentioned have been weakened, but these strong eurosceptic voices, these strong populist parties, and FireEye parties, while they might agree on the issue of the EU parliament are leaving the EU, or the difficulties of EU. They don't agree on a lot of other issues. So they're not forming alliances necessarily with each other. If they were all to come together to form an alliance, which everyone says, is likely to happen, then they would probably have some stronger voting power. In the meantime, in a sense, what it looks like is that many countries are turning back in on themselves. So we see Greece. It's already cold snap election in the UK talking about their toward party leader in Germany. Let's go to Martha's coalition is on rocky footing now. So all of these. Issues in the sense go back to national politics, which I guess, often is the case when it comes down to e you elections. It ends up being all about national politics. The world's Orla Barry, there in London later, this hour, what Steve Bannon has to do with the EU election results, and how this weekend's voting as Orla just mentioned up ended the Greek government the other big story today is, of course, President Trump's visit to Japan. Some business was done in between golf and burger dinners with prime minister Shinzo Ave overall, the Japanese government seemed eager to keep the president entertained, I ask you Tatsumi for the highlights. She's a Japan policy expert at the Stimson center in Washington. I think the highlight is absolutely. The two leaders watching the wrestling much together. Joe and Trump giving the Hewish Japan friendship Cup to the winner of.
Freedom Party, Europe And Austria discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"Just a few weeks ago. Things were looking rosy for Austrian politician, Heinz, Christian stock. Mr. struck has hard, right. Freedom Party had been ruling in a governing coalition and he was the country's vice chancellor and heads. The his- at a campaign event for the upcoming European elections. He spoke from a beer tent about some of his favorite themes must see fit into human, and I'm. With a beer glass in front of him. He railed against immigration saying it causes massive development failures. He said, natives or ancestral, people becoming a minority in Austria, that the country, did not want is limitation. Now his career has taken a nosedive. He was seen in video. It was a sting was filmed covertly in twenty seventeen and it's all happening beef or so. It's become known as the beef scandal. He's discussing the possibility of illegal donations from woman who claims to be the niece of a Russian oligarch Emiko Voy is a senior editor of the economist, and was recently reporting in Austria. And there was also some of the rubber dunk stuff about controlling the media in this being part of a deal in return, the state contracts in the wake of the scandal. The Austrian chancellor Sebastian coots dissolved the coalition government by calling for elections in September. The government has fallen apart effectively. It has. Collapsed because the Freedom Party was the minority party propping up the conservative party in government in Austria. So the Israeli government that is now having to go forward to hold new elections. And we'll see what happens then. So this, right. Wing party. That was propping up. The coalition government has now got itself into some very visible trouble what happens now. The interesting thing about story is that you had is very charismatic young leaders best in courts, taking over one of those traditional parties Austrian conservatives, typically, these are the kind of policies having difficulty at the moment and having these populist challenges across Europe. Would he did reach out to the Freedom Party, which is pretty hard core is much better to bring these guys into government? We can sort out things to the satisfaction of the broad centre-right and further. Right. The problem now is that has been up Salih torn asunder to presumably in the forthcoming. Elections than the Freedom Party this far right? Party will do extremely poorly, and perhaps, the, the conservative party will get an outright majority. I think it's quite difficult for conservatives to get that, right. Majority struggled for years, but was needed coalition partners, the Freedom Party. We simply don't know you would say, wouldn't you, this is one of the great pratfalls of political drama, in Europe, but let's not forget, they do have a very strong base very strong in certain parts of Austria, and also Australia, bit defiant, and often when they find that they've got a leader, whatever their political taste, the basal leader under pressure as often stood very firm. It's not absolutely clear that being hugely embarrassed once figure is gone destroys your vote Sebastian could However, I think, will not want to go back into a coalition with these guys really has had his fingers bird. And what about beyond Austria as we head into the European parliamentary elections, will this story have resonance for all of those people thinking? About other populist right-wing hard line parties. I think the kind of nuanced populism that's to in courts represents still has a lotta vote here across Europe. And don't think it's on the way, the European elections of probably getting to suggest that what does it mean it means coming up with solutions of possible solutions to immigration and asylum crises, which you, usually about keeping the people who want to come quite a long way from Europe's borders, and particularly the borders of its inner state. So it can mean trying to do deals to keep them just at the edge of the broader e you. But I think that way of taking some of the language of hatred and stripping away, leaving that to the fall reut was same time, you preach pragmatism, but you really try to clamp down on the numbers coming in. I do think that is the politics. The is gaining in salience across Europe. That election to the European parliament begins tomorrow with all twenty eight European countries. Voting over three days. In the five years since the last elections, nationalist parties like Austria's, Freedom, Party have seen their fortunes rise. But one feature of the last few years in Europe has been the growth of extreme parties on the right. And, and on the left particularly on the right. I suppose Chris Lockwood is economists Europe editor you see in Italy, the Northern League Lega becoming a much more powerful force in politics, you see in Spain, the rise of this small new, vox party in Poland shift to the conservative party of law, and Justice, and so on, and so forth. So it's to be expected in these elections that you will see a bit of a tilt in the European parliament towards the far. Right. Does that mean that the sort of overall tilt of the parliament itself will we'll be to the right? Do you think I think this has been rather exaggerated? If you take the combined forces of what you could call the nationalist right if you define those parties as being one. That are outside of the mainstream existing parties. I wouldn't expect them to gain more than forty or fifty or maybe sixty seats which is a sizable number. But remember that the European parliament is seven hundred fifty one strong. You say this rise in the sort of extreme parties, isn't quite so worrisome as, as some might think. But I mean, do you think it's election kind of takes the temperature of the, the you as a whole? Well, that's a very interesting question. I don't want to underestimate what's going on here, you are seeing forces that previously were not in mainstream politics, taking bigger rose in national parliaments, and bigger roles in the European parliament. So that does matter because it also requires the parties, particularly on the center right shifting a bit to the right in order to fend off that challenge. So, so there is an impact, and it's a response to a number of things one, the continued depression of wages and the hangover from the European Europe. Crisis of two thousand and ten to eleven and before that the worldwide credit crunch of two thousand eight hundred words the fact that Europe did receive an enormous number of migrants coming out of the Middle East, and that's led to a tremendous backlash in quite a number of countries. So these are genuine things that are genuinely happening in their, they're shifting politics to certain extent in a right with direction. So does it seem to you, then that people are kind of losing faith in the EU as an institution? No. It didn't think so actually, if you look at all the polling, it suggests that support for the EU is rather high levels. Of course, it went down during the economic crises pass those not the economies are in a fantastic state, but economic growth is returned unemployment has come down. And of course, you have the experiment of Britain Britain vertically leave the EU and has got himself into a tremendous mess ever since not able to decide quite what the mechanism for leaving would be. Be not being able to form a consensus on when and how to do it. And as a result every other country where there have been. Exit type movements of old hundred around. Maybe it isn't such a great idea. So the fascinating thing is that despite all of the problems that Europe's been through maybe even because of them because it was seemed to have just about survived them. People have come back to thinking, well, maybe this organization isn't so bad after Chris, thank you very much for your

"I'm Keith Walker in Bonn, Germany, Spain held an election last weekend. And the winner is political fragmentation according to analysts DWI Spain correspondent guy with Hello guy case. Now, the socialists were the big winners, but they fell short of a majority. What happens next? Well, as you say they were the clear winners, and they don't have the majority they need to govern on their own. So they're going to have to look around for partners to help them govern. Now that could either mean for me a coalition or it could mean, a less formal governing partnership, and I think what the socialists would like is probably something more along the lines of governing partnership. So they start talking to other parties most obvious ally is to their left the demos party. Looks like they would be willing to to help the socialist govern. But they're also going to need to support of other smaller parties probably small regional parties possibly, including Catalan and Basque nationalists. So that price is going to begin now. But it could take quite some time before we see the formation of a government if indeed a government can be formed if. A little bit of uncertainty. Could this not happen? Yes. That is possible. It is possible that there is no new governments. You know? If you go back to twenty fifteen Spain how general election, and it was inconclusive. It was quite fragmented again like this one occasion conservative party one without a majority. And there was a political deadlock that went on for months as parties, talk and talk and talk and try to break it. And in the end, they couldn't break the deadlock, and they had to repeat the election several months later now, no one wants to happen again here, there is a precedent there. Because as you say Spain is so fragmented of the moment, so I wouldn't rule that out. But I think Pedro Sanchez is confidently has us of sound foundation from which to form a government. Of course, Pederson is the leader of the socialists. Let's talk about some of the other big winners the far, right? Vox party did pretty well. With twenty four seats perhaps not as big a victory as they had hoped for. No there were some forecast ahead of the. Election suggesting that they might get up to forty or fifty seats because it was decided that might be a big hit and vote for vox because there are far right party. And there was a feeling perhaps might be kind of stigma in many people's minds about voting for the far. Right. So they wouldn't tell pollsters about that ahead of the election. But in the end goal is twenty four seats, which is a fairly modest hole in a three hundred fifty seat parliament. So their impact on that parliament in terms of legislation is clearly going to be very limited. But this is the first time a far-right party has ever had any kind of presence in the national parliament in Spain since the transition from dictatorship for decades ago. So that in itself is significant and also I think to find that they have a presence in parliament will see that as an opportunity to spread their message further, the socially, very conservative message message about taking a tough line on the territorial issue. Of Catalonia, for example, and they will use that in the parliaments trying to increase the popularity of course, it didn't score. Well in Cutler Neha perhaps unsurprisingly because they they're favoring punish unionism. Yes. The three parties on the right are all strident, a unionist, but vox, is you say is particularly so, and I think what differentiates vox perhaps from some of its other European counterparts on the far, right? Is that its support ready seems to be driven above all? By this issue of Catalonia. Take Sasha tough line against the Catalan. Independence movement wants to reintroduce indefinitely direct rule in Catalonia. It wants to dissolve the Catalan regional police force taking ready harsh measures against Catalan self rule, and that seems to have struck a chord among those those Spaniards who voted for the party. There is a minority in Spain wants to see such a tough line Cohen Spain. Thanks very much for being on inside Europe. Thanks case..

"Still to come Sri Lanka and Mongolia. But let's go now to the day's top story, the socialists of won the most votes in Spain. The far right is the top story have made a breakthrough into parliament. That's go straight to the BBC's year of Caccia outlet who stunned by in Madrid Katcha what happens next with coalition building. What's likely to happen? Well, yes, the needs to be a Kurdish belt because even though the central left socialist party in Spain is now the country's biggest which is a dramatic improvement on pulse. Election results for them. They have fallen short of a parliamentary majority they need to form a coalition. If you look to the financial markets possibly also to the European Union. They would like would be to see the socialist party jumping into bed with center rights, the donnas party. They describe themselves as liberal layoff financially. But there are many Spaniards who see them as having moved much more to the rights during the recent election campaign, and neither party is is really keen to be partnered with the other more likely at the socialist party will look to the populace left to the pool their most that we can party, and it'll also need the support of smaller parties, though, not necessarily the Catalan independence. Policies which would be again electorally difficult Spain, of course, was very as split had kind of an identity crisis. After the recent push at for independence in the region of Catalina sounds complicated. If you like what you're seeing is quite a fragmented political landscape with the left having done very well the right being splintered for the first time. We do see the fall right with seats and government of vox party populist, nationalist, one seats for the very first time since the death of Spain's military dictator Francisco Franco in the mid nineteen seventy. So that is a big headline still, but they didn't quite make the political earthquake that they were they were really hoping for what they did do was real votes from other right wing parties who are licking their wounds this morning. Seventy five percent turnout is thirty election in less than four years. Why did people turn out in such numbers and think it mattered that much? Because it was part of Spain's identity crisis. Because people felt that the vote absolutely counted some voters that we spoke to polling stations said that they saw this is a fight for Spain soul left and right. And whereas in Europe in recent years, we've seen the destruction if you like the traditional cheap party system, and that was expected here in Spain as well. But the center Lecter shoeless party definitely benefited from those Spaniards who just said they could not back to see the fall right in parliament had possibly even it had been before the election as a junior partner in Spain's next coalition government. So that I think helped her shop voter turnout with some folks are saying this morning. It was less vote for the socialist party and more vote against the gawks. Spain has been deeply divided left Enwright since civil war and that goes back to the nineteen thirties. Historical perspective, many facts as a catcher in Madrid. The BBC's Europe editor..

"Did well the traditional right wing People's Party. So it's vote fall severely, but the far right? Vox party entered parliament for the first time, I've been speaking to the BBC's Tim Willcox covering events in Madrid for BBC world news. Well, it is a big win for the socialists. And now that essentially is in a position to form a coalition that should be relatively straightforward. Given the seats with Palermo's, circle, they must which is a hard left party has forty two six associates have one hundred and twenty three that does fall short of a majority which negotiate one hundred seventy six in the congress of deputies now that is going to be slightly more problematic for him because he will perhaps go to the tasks the past. Maybe we'll provide back by seven or eight, but he might have to go back to the Catalans as well to get the teenage as you get the majority in the congress of deputies now wealthy controversial for a lot of. Standards because we've just seen how fragmented Spanish society is with these ages selections, which have changed the country from essentially, what was her Sorek two-party party country between the socialists and the right-wing to a five party country now where the hard-right still over the horizon. The first time has a presence tell us about that not point two percent. They got last time this far right party called vox now. Ten percent. We've seen far right parties across Europe make games is this the same thing going on. It's not quite the same as perhaps in Italy an elsewhere. But but you are right. I mean, they have come from nowhere. They have got representation now in parliament for the first time, but it's not the political earthquake that they were hoping for is interesting in the last few hours, their supporters were gathering easy plaza. Margaret thatcher. Named after the British Prime minister here. And there was obvious disappointment that they haven't created the breakthrough that they were anticipating they were hoping for many more six and they've got nonetheless leader of vox, cetera, his supporters, welcome to the resistance because this is a a seismic moment really for modern day Spain bearing in mind, you've gotta hard right political party. Now in parliament for the first time since the death of the dictator Francisco Franco back in nine hundred seventy five and beyond the symbolism. What can they do with it? What? I mean, if there are small party will anyone work with them. Can they do anything? I think that's a good question because it is the simplest of rarely because if they've got the the the the number of seats, they have it means in fact that they will be able to will have tried to set your gender for the right? But they haven't got. The number of seats really to make any difference in terms of votes. So I think it is the symbolism of that. And you say what they will claim is that they have they set the weather ready as far as the political rights here in Spain is concerned by talking about flooring back some of the powers that have been given two semi autonomous regions and talking about the unity of Spain. And particular that absolute Boris of what they see as treacherous treasonous behavior by the Catalan separatists, so that's the BBC's Tim Willcox talking to us from Madrid.

"Atlantic Council focusing on Iran and Philip sons Anglo-French barrister author and professor of law at University College London more from them to come. But first let's cross to Spain. Because the polls there have literally just opened for the third general election in the country in four years for the first time since the death of General Franco in nineteen seventy five a far right party. Vox is expected to do quite well, the incumbent prime minister Pedrick sunshine of the left-wing socialists is standing for re-election as well. But let's get the latest on the on the election has the polls open because we're. Joined live from Madrid. By our correspondent guy hedge coat guy, just remind us of the main issues in this campaign. Well, there is really one issue, which is dominated all others in this campaign, which has been dominating Spanish politics. The last few months, and that's the issue of Catalonia and the castle regions failed attempts to break away from Spain. Which continue to create tensions between Madrid and the Catalan region up in the northeast and the response to that territorial crisis by the political parties has created enormous tensions and enormous division in society and in politics parties on the left, including Petra Sanchez's, socialists, would prefer to take more considered Trie approach to the to the pro-independence movement in the pro-independence government up in Catalonia and the parties on the right including far, right? Vox party. Take a much tougher unionist line much more on uncompromising line against the independence movement. And that has really created a lot of tensions. There are other issues such as the economy, which is doing reasonably well, gender equality, and so on, but those issues have been relatively marginalized by the issue Catalonia, any mention vox there, and what's been quite extraordinary over the past year. Or so in Spanish politics is the speed with which this. Party is sort of gained ground. Yes. That's right. I mean, they have been in existence twenty four team, but they were really below the radar of most Spaniards for a long time. And it was I suppose last summer when we started to see them start to really make an impact on poles. And that seemed to have a lot to do with the issues that they were focusing on like many other far right parties around Europe. They talk about immigration clamping down on immigration. They have very conservative social platform. But again, the issue which is really helped him a lot seems to be tough line on Catalonia, which makes him a very unusual in that sense differentiates from other European parties, but the is unclear how well they're going to do. There are a lot of varying estimates to how many seats they're gonna get it looks like they're gonna get some kind of presence in parliament for the first time in Spanish democracy. And we mentioned that this is the third general election in the past four years. I mean, is there a sense that people are getting wary of democracy there in Spain? I mean has there been much enthusiasm to turn out again to vote today? Well, you know, as you say the police stations have just opened. So we don't know what turn out will be today. I mean, we don't have any indication that turnout will necessarily be any lower than it was in twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen I think people are a bit irritated by the fact that having to vote. Yes again. And that's reflects the very fragmented nature of Spanish politics. We're going to have more elections next month with e you elections and regional and municipal elections. So if people aren't fed up now, they're certainly going to be set up elections next month things, but I think yes, there is a certain amount of wariness. But if they if there is a low turn outs that could hurt the left. A high turnout is seen as possibly favoring the left of favoring, prime minister, pedal, Sanchez guy. Thank you very much for the latest there from Madrid guy hedge go there. Well, philly. What do you make of these elections in Spain? And also the debate that's been hand ahead of them. I think as report indicated I mean, we have a number friends in the Kathleen region in bus learn particular on both sides of the debate. I mean, some strongly in favor of independence some on the fence and some totally opposed. It's very divided issue to bit like Brexit in the United Kingdom or Donald Trump. In the United States. It goes back to what we were discussing earlier this incredible polarization that's taking place in societies. And the interesting question of what is causing that to happen in so many different countries and interesting in Spain Oviously with its history and Franco, we pup see middle aged and older generations turning away from that era. But it's seems to be quite a lot of enthusiasm among the younger people for this new party Vokes. Well, I think that a several things play to this. I think that this whole sudden rise of the right wing across the west is in part in due to the two thousand eight financial crisis. I think that we really have an address those issues, and there's talks of another one coming in the near future. So they see that the economy is a big problem. Unemployment's big problem, and they're they're kind of becomes Zeno phobic and their anti immigration because they see that immigrants are taking jobs, whether it's in the UK or Spain or the United States, and I think also we have to admit that social media has also played a big role social media's kinda VIN platform to people that were quiet and weren't really around before they were kind of on the dark web. And and they've actually made a grand presence on Facebook and Twitter, and we're not exactly sure just yet. What have the role of Bautzen? Trolls played in this or if there's been interference. But I think that's also been par for the course on these elections across the west is really interesting point, you make about the global financial crash being the root of much of this sentiment back in two thousand eight and of course, back then all the institutions of the world were working together. Weren't they to to try and make sure that the impact of that crush wasn't felt too badly. If it did happen, again, those institutions Stiller, I think what we'll see as maybe some more anger, especially essentially, this was rooted in the United States with Wall Street. We never really put these bankers in jail or on trial. We bailed them out, and we essentially put a giant band-aid on the problem. You saw this anger and frustration amongst young Americans. And this is what's led to the presence of Donald Trump Bernie Sanders, and of course, some of these younger politician. That are now in congress. Modem from holy Douglas and Philip sons for the next hall Fowler. Let's turn our attention to Salunke though. Because this time last week, of course, Easter Sunday for Christians one of the most important days of the year about religion, a coordinated attack was underway across Lancashire churches and hotels targeted by suicide. Bombers security officials suspect it's highly likely that although the attackers were local it seems they may well have had help from the so-called Islamic state group of the state of emergency remains in place in Sri Lanka. As more suspects are arrested and the situation remains very tense earlier. I spoke to the BBC's Martin patience who spoke to me about the mood in Colombo a very difficult day, and I might science in Anthony's, and that was one of the churches attacked on Easter Sunday in the past. Are there's been a very moving Sarony. It was just on site of. The church you saw the white robes of the priests, and they were joined by the monks and their orange robes, and then there was the military degree military uniforms, as you were saying, this is a country that remains in a state of emergency and things remain very tense here. We're about hundred meters back behind barricades have the heavy police checks coming in here, but around one hundred worshippers gathered and they were offering prayers. They were offering prayers to their frames to their families and for those who who lost their lives who were killed inside the church in front of me a week ago on Easter Sunday and Martin you talk of Buddhists joining Christians has been quite a lot of comments of solidarity across this week from local imams as well. And I understand some temple somebody's temples have been allowing must take place. Then. This is a multicultural country. I think the realize Dacian here.

"Video capturing a child's first steps or first words are first day of school. This is what so many of us do right? As parents, we document the moments that are important in our child's life and we posted online for our community to see. And as we do that. We are inevitably shaping our child's online presence. Most of the time the child in question doesn't really get a say in the matter and that creates complications as kids get older and realized that much of their life is already online and anyone can see it Taylor. Lawrence is a staff writer at the take who's been reporting on this her recent pieces called when kids realize their whole life is already online. She joins us via Skype Taylor. Thanks for being here. Thank you so much for having me, what provoked you to look into this. You know, there's so much about the set from the parent's perspective. But I just wanted you talk to them. So. Selves about when they surged to realize that they had its presence. What was the range of of responses when you engage them on this? I mean, it kind of just runs the gamut. Some kids were upset about the information that was out there about them. So they Google themselves and find, you know, in some cases, their parents have consented to school websites loosing about them. They were upset that may be the whole sports record was up there or that their parents had plus lot more public stuff than they realized. And then some kids really liked it like there was one boy who really felt like it made him feel famous to have all these pictures of himself on the internet. Maybe eighty percent of the kids that I spoke to didn't realize the extent of their internet presence, and the ones that did had parents had proactively warn them about it. But they had been told United staff line, but they got since they didn't have social media themselves. There would actually be that much about them. But in some cases, that's just not the case in your reporting in in these conversations. I mean, did it create tension in any of these relationships, especially as you? You got to like the middle school age or high school? That's when it starts to create tension. I think kids in elementary score the ones that I talked to you between third and fifth grade when they first Google themselves in pants, they're kind of like frustrated by what they find. Or they think it's novel. But it wasn't 'til kids got to middle school that I heard anybody really state like I my about this. I'm really frustrated desert or my dad or whatever. So I think middle school is often when kids want to get their own social media profiles. And I think they just want to start dictating their online presence for themselves. So I think that's the Olympic fiction agrees. But the bottom line is talk to your kids before you post. Yeah. And help them understand these platforms. Do you know a lot of parents wanted to their kids from these platforms? But I think parents need to have a better understanding of how these platforms work, and they just need to open the dialogue Taylor Lawrence. He's a staff writer at the Atlantic Taylor.

"Four decades since the end of the Franco dictatorship women's rights in Spain have seen huge advances. But the recent electoral success of the far-right vox party has appeared to unleash something of a backlash known for its opposition to immigration and customs separatism. The party is now putting gender equality gender violence at the center of Spain's political debate. I hedge co reports. The demonstration by women in the southern city of Paris. They opposed the arrival of a new right-wing and Lucy and regional government particular they were angry that the new administration needed the support of vox exchange for its backing vox wanted the new government to strip funding from women's groups for laws protecting women from violence to be revised such ideas have led many to see vox as misogynist extremist labels. The party itself rejects even Spinoza FOX's head of international relations defends its controversial gender policies. If a woman accuses man of anything the man is presumed guilty until proven innocent, which is absolutely radical. I don't think the answer is to criminalise fifty percents Spain's population. It's been also says false accusations of violence by women against former partners are rife in the gender. Violence problem is exaggerated. There is a number of women. There are being murdered by men, which is always an acceptable. Even if it was just one it would be unacceptable. But if you consider the more than half of those have to do with either terrorists or immigrants who happened to be here for one or another reason, then it turns out that the stats looks more like half of those last year. Nearly fifty women were killed by their partners or ex partners. But that annual figure has dropped dramatically in recent years in great part because of cross party cooperation conservatives and leftists work together on a quality and gender. Violence. Marta Gonzalez is a member of parliament for the conservative Popular Party, which is leading the new in government progress has been huge during the dictatorship Spanish women could not for instance, have a passport and leave the country without permission from their parents or husband's they could not open Bank account without the permission of. Of their husbands, and these has changed completely change after the constitution of nineteen seventy eight. And in the last twenty years, we have made huge progress in what is related to gender violence. Is there a possibility that all these advances at Spain made over the years could be in danger? Because of the fact that your party is willing to make a deal with vox, which is a party that opposes many of those kinds of advances. It seems not at all I would like to be very clear on this issue because we have to bear in mind that very important agreement attacked on gender violence and all kinds of violence against women has been very recently approved at congress and the Senate in Spain among all parties. Volks wasn't part of that national pact. And although it's demands on gender issues in Andalucia weren't accepted its efforts to disrupt the consensus seems to be paying off the seems to be an increasing willingness among certain politicians commentators and even members of the Catholic church to speak out against what they call radical feminism and the so-called criminalization of men. But the campaign for equal rights is not only being fought out on the streets or in the country's parliament. It's also being waged in places. Like this a local government building in the working class district of northern Madrid..

Reuters foundation in London and Michelangelo Barada was a Spanish writer and jealousies with his from Madrid will have more from them in a moment after we've brought you up to date on the story of the Saudi teenager who battled in Thailand to avoid being sent back to her family. She's now. On her way to Canada. The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his country was pleased to accept a request on her behalf from the UN refugee agency, the eighteen year old had said she feared she would be killed by her relatives after publicly renouncing Islam. She barricaded herself into a hotel room following her arrival in Bangkok on Saturday to avoid deportation. And then publicized her case through Twitter. This is from the video that she posted from her hotel. I'm not leaving my until I see you an edge. See r. I learned to asylum. Well, the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed that she RA half Muhammed Al Coon has been granted asylum UNHCR has made a request of Canada that we except miss Conan as a refugee, and we have accepted the UN's request that we grant her asylum. That is something that we are pleased to do because Canada is a country that understands how important it is to stand up for human rights to stand up for women's rights around the world, and I can confirm that we have accepted the UN's request. We'll Phil Robertson of Human Rights, Watch explained. Why Canada and not Austrailia Mozelle canoes preferred destination had decided to grant her asylum. It was rather rushed. I mean, obviously there was a premium placed by the UN on getting her out of Thailand. The I think there was some concern that her father and brother were still here. Here and we understand now they may be leaving even later tonight. So the feeling was that they wanted to get her to a protected place to a third country as soon as possible, and it appears that Canada one. That's weep stakes essentially they were prepared to move very very quickly. Others may not have been prepared to move as quick or way various procedures that were required by their ongoing refugee processing guidelines, and he said the teenager had shown great resolve and would adapt to life in Canada. Think it's going to be initially at a difficult transition. She doesn't know as many people in Kansas. He doesn't Australia, but you know, she's resilient. She will be finally in a place where you can live her life the way she wants. And I think that's very important. And I think that the world is getting smaller every day with these kind of social media connections in no time. I'm sure she will be traveling the world was her friends again, we'll motor el-zahar. We the New York based Saudi columnist says that what she has done will inspire many others. Muhammad alcon. Mark my words is going to start a revolution in Saudi Arabia. Go on social media now and watch the accounts of so many young Saudis saying Ralph you have shown us that we can do this. The sentiments of Mona L to haul. We thoughts from my guests Michelangelo Morada, you covered the Middle East in the post. I wonder if you agree with Mona L to hallways. Sentiments about the impact. This might have on Saudi Arabia. Well, it is a very interesting precedent. Because in this case, she has been granted asylum, not because she's a political activists. Although in a way, you could say she is. But the main thing is that she has renounced islam- is personal reasons that lead to to leave Saudi Arabia. She can't leave him. So you're the sort of life. She wants to leave. So it's a precedent of accepting that regimes can be oppressive not just for political reasons. But also for. Social for personal reasons as well any serious indictment of Saudi Arabia, which comes at a time in which Saudi Arabia is also being criticized for many other things and well, the Khashoggi affairs. He's very recent. I don't know if if a revolution will be started. But certainly Saudi Arabia's coming more and more on the scrutiny of the world interesting. Well that Canadian Saudi relations have been very poor heavenly. Yes. Well, Saudi Arabia's having relented its relations downgraded elsewhere as well. I mean, it's it's is getting into trouble. It has a lot to do with with newly the they have the sprints and Bs who was initially a scene with the with a lot of of hope by some people not by me, particularly, but he's proven to be a reckless person, and certainly very problematic. I suppose the other point Hillary is is this a remarkable story of one particular. Individual being treated, in particular way, and in a very high profile fashion or does this point to something bigger? Well, I think that social media aspect of it is really interesting place, the remote exactly that from you know, that you can way to campaign from behind the hotel blockaded hotel door in Thailand is. What a change that is and lots of people have seen this in a lot of places probably well beyond Saudi Arabia to thought. Okay. I think the the revolution that she's talking about. You know, I mean who knows, but certainly people are aware there might be a lot more options of into them now than they than they were before. Where'd you both about current issues for you, both personally, Laurie your work at the Thomson? Reuters foundation has I know taken you in recent times, I think it was last year to Fiji. That's right. What did you see there? What did it? What did it do by way of informing your view of the impact that climate change is beginning to have in parts of the world like that? Well, what was really interested in there? They had a really big cyclone that came through in two thousand sixteen called Winston that was the one the first category. Five cyclone in the in the Pacific. And and what happened is that and is happening and a lot of places now with climate changes, the people kind of used to the dealing with disasters that come their way. You know, I grew up in the midwest in the US, we have tornadoes, we have, you know, everybody's got their own problem. But so people when the cyclone came in they prepare it in the way, they always did they went to the concrete house in these villages on the island stayed with their neighbors huddled down and this storm came in and demolish the concrete houses and put everybody in the water killed forty four people in the island nine in this particular village that I was writing about, and it's had huge mental health impacts because people are just you know, when you go from being a successful farmer who's in charge of the family. Things are good in your life. And everything is destroyed. And you have this really long lasting fear is well about what could happen again. You're at the, you know, the family I was writing about had been he was living for eight months and his sons girlfriends apartment with all the family, you know, trying to make a go of it, the the psychological aspects of this really huge. I mean, setting aside, the kind of existential ones are explaining to your kids about the risks of what happens in these does. But that has implications doesn't it fo- for wider government policies, and you would clearly advocate green in quotes policies to address some of the climate change issues. But unless government is prepared to look at the wider implications and the effects that issues like this will have on people's for example, health. Yeah, they won't be dealing with the full picture. That's right. I think some of the agencies like the Red Cross, which is the first responder in a lot of this. They've actually changed the way they respond. You know, they've said food and water is not enough. Now, we need to have psychological counseling for people. I would think those big wildfires in California in paradise is going to be some serious mental health issues following that kind of horrific loss of life, and and powerlessness, and and worry about things and governments are going to have to recognize too that when you recover from a disaster. It's not over. Yes. Not just of an insurance and food and water and rebuilding. It's bigger. Marado? I wanted to talk to you about the state of of Spanish politics for few moments because on Wednesday, the far-right vox party confirmed that there will be a affectively essential, right or a right wing coalition in the regional government of Andalucia, it will work alongside the People's Party. What does that say to you about changes in Spanish politics? Well, you you may remember that a few months ago, you asked me whether in Spain it existed, a far right movements. Yeah. I told you. No, no, no. Of course, we don't have. We're very well. Let's say a lost a greater opportunity to remain silent. Because now we do have a far right movement. And in fact, quite a successful one. It got a very good results in the regional elections in the this is significant because the Lucia is by far the more left-leaning region in Spain. So he predicts that these new movement, which is oh conservative its name is Latin which is kind of a giveaway. It's called vox is polling now at around thirteen percent of the vote it can increase its vote in the coming months, especially in the in Maine the European election season set to to have a good show. So the appeal what what's the message? It's putting across that seems to be resonating with with some people. Well, the main thing is Catalonia's almost everything in Spanish politics. Now. The idea of the unity of Spain is appealing to many Hispanics who feel humiliated. My my talent secessionists that is the main selling point of this party, but apart from that less second of anti illegal immigration, as well, which is new to Spanish politics are never been an issue before an also an anti feminism the oppose the the gender equality laws that were passed by the by the government of potato in the past have been left in place by conservatives to so these three things are the main the main platform what what of attitudes to the European Union within. Euroskeptic? Spain remains very pro European country for many reasons, not least because Spain has neatly benefited from European Union. Very clearly and everybody knows that there's some people who who became a little bit Morris erase kept it during the crisis. But it was more of an anti German sentiment. Anti medical sentiment and is now gone away. A span is again for European. It would be dangerous for for a political party, even a far far right party to to be receptive. On the on the other side on the other extreme of Spanish politics. Proposals. Which is a far left organization has around seventeen percent of the vote. They also started off as eurosceptic to some extent. And euro. And now they are not. So that gives you an idea of how strong European design Spain eighteen minutes past seven GMT. Let's catch up with the sports news now in Cullum Harrison is with us starting with football column. Two more teams have the chance to qualify for the knockout stage of the Asian Cup today.

The other day face Yemen, Iran, play the Vietnamese and Iran's catch. Carlos cares was impressed by Vietnam's performance against Iraq. They put a lot of effort. In the preparation.
