It's Not Easy Being a Radio Star

"21 minutes after the hour America continue my conversation with the legendary Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully. And sky, how hard is it to get that first gig in broadcast? Well, again, fake play the hand. There was a lovely girl on the campus who was a friend of mine, not a girlfriend, but a friend named McGee, marguerite Clark, and marguerite said, I will type up letters and we'll send them out to radio stations, and I said, okay, let's start from Maine to Florida. And so we had a big book called a broadcast magazine, and it listed all of the stations that you addressed the East Asian managers name, et cetera, and she began typing up the letters, and we came to Washington, D.C., WTO, a.m. and FM, which is a 50,000 watt station. That's the major league. It doesn't get any bigger and brighter than that. So I said to McGee as we called her, McGee, we better skip that. That's too big a station. And to date the story, she said, look, it's only going to cost another three cents stamp. So we put a three cent stamp on this 50,000 watt station letter, mailed it off, and I received a lot of answers from other stations basically saying no job or listen pal. This is a big station and you're coming off a college campus station, which it was not. It was an FM station. But anyway, WTO P said please send an audition disk. So I sent a disk down containing the various bits and pieces of on air broadcast and the next thing I know I received a phone call and the phone call said we would be interested in meeting you, we don't hire anyone site unseen. So I went down to Washington or auditioned again live and got the job. That is

"WTO. America's birthday is here and the celebrations downtown at the national mall will be back to normal after two pandemic years. Crowds will soon be gathering for those events. Many road closures and parking restrictions in the district are already in effect. The National Park Service is putting on a full firework celebration just after 9 tonight. So if you're planning to head down to the national mall for the fireworks display, you are in course encouraged to take metro, but you'll probably want to leave home earlier than you were planning. Metro's rail capacity will be lower than a typical July 4th holiday. That means after the fireworks are over, expect longer lines to enter stations near them all. To help handle the crowds and manage the long waits, metros transit police will be positioned across the system. It's all hands on deck. Metro's interim general manager Andy off tells our news partners at NBC four, the July 4th celebration is a huge event for the agency. Pre-pandemic, you know, we'd have 400,000 people or so, whether we'll get to that point or not quite sure. But it's going to be big. And off says you will see metro transit police at the Smithsonian and other busy metro rail stations near the festivities, it may even get to the point where police will have to stop people before they enter a crowded station to make sure they're not putting too many people on the platform. We're setting folks expectations that it is going to be very busy. Sarah Jacobs, WTO, news. Don't forget about the security checkpoints at the national mall. Weapons of any kind, including knives or prohibitive, also no drones or barbecue grills. All bags will

The Most Troubling Implications of Hunter's Foreign Business Dealings

"Sinister at play here. Which is it's very clear that as we dive into the Hunter Biden and the Joe Biden crime family run by Joe himself that American public policy, an American foreign policy. Was changed altered or edited because of the business dealings that Hunter Biden was engaged in. So it's not just that Hunter Biden did all these bad things. It's not that just Joe Biden told him to do it, but it's becoming more and more clear that the reason why these foreign countries and these foreign banks in these foreign energy companies and why the Chinese Communist Party was pumping money in is because they were getting something in return. Now we have laws against selling access for a reason. This is not just a crime that is impacted one person. It's not just like Joe and Hunter Biden went to the side of the street and stole a purse from somebody. This arguably impacts everybody. It impacts the entire free world. So when you have Joe and Hunter Biden going to China, receiving an extraordinary amount of money from China for no reason whatsoever. It begs the question, what decisions were then made as a result towards China because of that payoff? A Peter Schweitzer has a great one liner that he says the Chinese use a lot, which is bad mouth big help. That is how the Chinese describe Joe and Hunter Biden. They might talk a good game with China here and there. But they're a big help. You know, challenge their status in the World Health Organization. They never want, I mean, in the world, not just the World Health Organization, but in the WTO, the World Trade Organization, I should say. They don't want a full fledged investigation into the origins of the virus. They don't want sanctions on China. They might talk a good game here in there and they don't even do that very well, by the way. But it really does beg the question how much of this we're seeing unfolding in America is pay to play by our enemies in our adversaries. The New York Post

"London. This is the marketplace morning report from the bbc world. Service victoria craig. Good morning beijing has issued the latest salvo. And it's escalating fight with canberra. Today it filed a lawsuit with the wto challenging anti dumping measures including two year old tariffs on train wheels and wind turbines. The move comes a week. After australia challenged its biggest. Trading partners wine export tariffs which reach as high as two hundred eighteen percent. The bbc's phil mercer has more from sydney china is accusing australia of anti competitive behavior against chinese exports of railway wheels stainless steel sinks and wind towers. The australian trade minister is a man called dante and and he says that australia will be vigorously defending these duties that it has in place for several years now and lots of speculation here in australia that china's move is retaliation against australia taking china to the world trade organization over bali and wine with more pressure perhaps from the us and europe on china. Do you think that could pressure china to the negotiating table with australia. Probably not we get the sense here in australia. Perhaps china is trying to make an example of australia. Australia is trying to stand up to what it considers to be economic coercion. The prime minister scott morrison has indicated. Are there signs. That china is willing to back down or to negotiate. We don't see signs of either of those two things. Now of banescu meeting between china and australia lost year camera. Demanded an inquiry into the origins of the new corona virus that was first detected in china in one thousand nine hundred and ever since we've seen relations deteriorates and this trade war between the two countries escalate and it's been a particularly painful situation for some businesses in australia hasn't it. Many many businesses have been suffering. The wine industry is one in particular in november of last year. China announced additional import taxes on australian wine exports of more than two hundred percent. China was australia's most valuable wine export market but those duties imposed by the chinese last year almost killed off that lucrative trade in an instant. It is worth noting that at the moment that key commodity that australia relies on in terms of its exports seems to be off limits in this trade feud with china and that is of course i all on or is australia's most valuable exports on or is helping to fuel china's industrialization.

Australia Takes Wine Dispute With China to WTO

"Says it will formally complain to the World Trade Organization over China's decision to impose up to 200% tariffs on Australian wine in 2019 China border nearly a billion dollars worth of wine from Australia. That figures indicated since November, when Beijing imposed his tariffs, trade has virtually collapsed, showing China's ability to severely damage of foreign industry. Dante in is Australia's trade minister. We believe that we need to take every action available to us to try and resolve disputes where we think that harm has been done to sectors or industries in our economy. And in this instance, we believe that the actions taken by the Chinese government have caused serious harm to the Australian wine industry.

"wto " Discussed on AvTalk - Aviation Podcast

"On this episode of the us and eu closed the book on their aviation subsidies fight and turn their attention to china. Sea fm debuts its new rise engine platform and airbus and cathay. Pacific are working on single pilot operations for the three fifty. Hello and welcome to episode one hundred and sixteen of talk. I am ian pech. Nick here as always with jason urbanowicz How're you liking our weekly weekly episodes. Now you're getting into the new rhythm. I'm getting into the new rhythm. I like it. And i'm pleased that nearly all of the feedback that we've gotten from listeners has been positive from ranging from yeah edged. It's pretty okay. To this is the best thing ever and i live for it each week and to those people i say thank you very much that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. No further people who may be negative feedback. You could just skip every other week. You'd never know about that news but that's okay. You could discuss that war. it's fine. Take a glance at the show notes in that and then go from there. Yeah there has been literally one person who had negative feedback about the switch to weekly episodes. So it's you know. Hopefully hopefully we change their mind. So we'll we'll go from there but this week show more of catching up on on what has happened versus a an industry overview. I thought last week show. I mean having listened to it. Jason i know you haven't listened to it because i was there man one episode but having listened to the episode kind of back in you know listening to the episode from a learning perspective than a participating in perspective. I agree more and more with everything that the john's said and i i had a conversation or pose. The question is if someone who is extremely enthusiastic about this happening. And i just you know y and the response that i got was very much a personal response and did not seem to address any of the the major challenges so i i haven't seen anything. That convinces me that anything that was said last week was either wrong or are off base or or needs rethinking. So if you haven't listened to last week's upset please please do so And if you had any thoughts e e mail listen and let us know what you thought because the more we do this the less i feel like we got. We got that wrong. Yeah i mean. Sure i would love if my fights my to trans con fights. This week would have been a supersonic but it ain't going to happen anytime soon. So that's where that sets but we have. We have new things to talk about on this week's episode. The first is the end to the long running. I think nearing on fifteen sixteen years running. Us versus eu. Really airbus versus boeing. Wto dispute that began. In two thousand four and culminated. It is far as ratcheting up. Things go last year and then has been hopefully resolved this week. A bit of background. In two thousand four the us filed a world trade organization grievance against the eu. Saying that airbus was being illegally subsidized by the eu. The eu filed a claim as well with the wto saying well. The us is subsidizing. Boeing and that went back and forth for about fifteen years and culminated in penalties. Being assessed terrif- battles escalated arabist planes. That were bound for. Us airlines were being delivered to places like amsterdam and south korea. Thanks to some of these tariffs were delta. Was keeping the planes out of the us to to not have to deal with it. There were issues that affected the two twenties production and delivery and all sorts of fun stuff and things outside of aviation were were affected by this. As well including wine cheese i think there were various component parts for all sorts of other things involved and to put a fine point on his first jason. I concerned alcohol was involved with this. Is where we draw the line and this is why it had to stop and so yesterday. A meeting between the eu and the us and agreement was reached and there is now a cooperative framework for large civil aircraft. That has been formed between the us and the eu. All of this is to say they're going to suspend the tit for tat tariffs settle their differences and all eyes now turn to what they are terming. Non market economies. So what this is really all about is is saying. Yeah we probably all subsidize aircraft. And is john oster are mentioned in the last week's episode. I mean no major. Civil aircraft has been brought to market without the assistance of government. If you're looking at things truly through where the money's coming from so they're saying well we're setting that aside and we're going to look at non market economies and their subsidies for large commercial aircrafts and when we make list of quote unquote market economies that are developing large civil aviation projects. The list is china and russia. Ish so really. What this is is it's it's a turn of the turn of the focus or swing of the focus to to china and too much lesser extent russia's civilization programs. Yeah the us and europe as a whole has spent stolen much time pointing fingers at each other for things that they themselves are doing they. They kind of forgot to point their finger and acknowledged really what was happening in russia and china. Which of course does programs. I'm sure are very heavily subsidized by the governments there so they probably to put their attention. Elsewhere it's boeing. Airbus aren't big enough. But their market dominance can surely be dominated in other markets. And we've talked about this to no end. But the aircraft market in china might look dramatically different in ten years than it does right now and i just wanted to put some perspective on. How just how long this. Wto dispute has been going on for. It started in two thousand four. The three eighty s. i fight wasn't until two thousand five and that aircraft has already lived out its entire existence to the point where a good chunk of the fleet may never fly again and production is already ceased how long this disputes going on for the early higher lifespan of an aircraft type. There was an article in. I forget where the article was but the social share photos. The photo that auto generates when when the the tweet goes out was a picture of lufthansa seven. Four seven in a three eighty kind of nose to nose. And certainly. that's a great photo to to showcase the issue but the the comment that somebody was making your both of those planes don't exist anymore. Yeah that's awkward so this has been going on for a very very long time and the thing is is that no one was ever really wrong. You know about the other. The claims that they were like yeah so nobody was wrong but they doing it themselves simultaneously for the better two decades exactly so there there you go so yeah five year pause on any u. s. e. u. arguments there are working groups. That will work to work so that they can work with their other counterparts in hopefully come up with a plan that they can then plan on. If you'll notice my turn of phrase here it's all government speak that i don't think really means anything at this point but they've decided to settle their differences. If results in lower alcohol prices. Everybody wins true so the other two two big kind of pieces of news that we wanted to talk about. Jason do you want to go for a cruise first or would you like to.

"So rosa palm trees here green lawns. A little bit like a college campus riding in a golf cart up to the factory. Your some of these are the migos month. Rubella reviews vaccine serum institute of india was already the world's biggest vaccine manufacturer even before this pandemic the company says two thirds of all children in the world. Get its vaccines and most of them are made here. At a sprawling factory complex in western india inside conveyor belts with all these tiny little vial weasing going for automatic resilience section automatic. Visual inspection is inspecting me europe machine. It's a high tech operation but look outside the factory window and you see a reminder of this companies more humble roots horses in the nineteen sixties. This was a farm breeding race horses and one day. One of the horses got bitten by a snake. Suresh giada serums executive director. Explains what happened next. Bimbos do the lanes. Were not working great in india so he could not get their disney. We could not get anti snake venom serum in time the horse died but it's owner had an idea you said yesterday why not start making it ourselves. So the serum institute of india was born. It began making serums against tetanus and snake venom and leader added vaccines against all sorts of childhood diseases. They specialize in generic versions at low profit margins and export to one hundred and seventy different countries last spring. A tiny package arrived here by career from oxford university in england to the very small. While is one in chief scientist. Shali graham describes what was inside components of a viral vector vaccine against the corona virus serum scrambled to start mass producing them immediately in huge floor to ceiling stainless steel vats of the one. Embryonic human embryonic kidney selling yeah scientists petty ready recalls how he was developing other vaccines these fats when his supervisor told him to quickly convert everything over to the corona virus vaccine while under lockdown as the pandemic exploded it was difficult to follow very strict rules of solution during this People to do overtime. This was before. Clinical trials showed that the oxford astrazeneca vaccine would work. It was a gamble with so much at stake. He says everybody's waiting for the all mankind waiting. The whole world is waiting for it to this winter. When trials finally proved this vaccine did indeed work is celebrated internally. Not like party or something but we had that moment of joy gonna champagne. No no serum hopes to soon be churning out a hundred million doses per month of this one vaccine on top of all the other vaccines they're still producing here. The oxford astra zeneca. Formula is particularly attractive to india and other low and middle income countries. Because it needs just regular refrigeration not subzero temperatures. This is for storage area. The capacity of seventy million dollars. So what we're looking at here is enough to vaccinate. Whole countries is ongoing process of building out of cold storage along these conveyor belts and out to sixty eight country so far racing against russia china. In what some are calling vaccine. Diplomacy india's huge capacity is attracted interest from the so called quad. The us japan. Australia and india. They announced financing to help another indian producer make a billion more doses of another co vaccine but while indian manufacturers are partnering with global pharmaceutical companies. The indian government is challenging pam at the world trade organization. There is an agreement that binds all wto members to certain levels of protection for intellectual property. Twenty year patents. Regional thrashers legal scholar at the global development policy center in boston. She explains how india and south africa are asking the wto to suspend those patents. Cova vaccines so that companies like serum can crank out generic versions quickly and in certain countries the majority of the population won't be vaccinated for something like five years that gives those viruses a long time to mutate. So the argument they're making is not. Hey look out for us but more this is in the interest of all of us. Everyone serums executive director. John says he supports that effort at the wto watery required is a vaccine today. Not tomorrow you want to stop the disease and stop it sprayed and that can happen. Only if there is no restriction on using technology many global health experts agree. The pope has said he does too but some companies including astrazeneca have pledged to sell vaccines at cost without profit and suspending. their patents. They say is not the answer it would kill innovation and would not speed up distribution bottlenecks more to do with supply chains than access to the vaccine technology itself. Both sides of this debate are over emphasizing. The role of patents. Daniel hamill is a law professor at the university of chicago. He says the serum institute success chose a middle path. It got a license from astrazeneca. It's been able to mass produce vaccines within the current regulatory environment ensures the potential licensing arrangements without cancelling patents ceremonies if you're disabled to gain rights to make vaccines on a large scale.

Australia to seek WTO intervention in barley row with China

"Take the China barley tariffs to the World Trade Organization. They're saying this is a logical and appropriate next step as they see this trade war, I guess. Heat up. With China so Australia to make a request here to the WTO's after China's barley tariff. Let's get more on this with Steve Breast chief investment strategist at Standard Chartered Private Bank, because I guess it is just a reminder that the trade war whether it's between the US and China or Australia and China is still something very much of the four and still could be something that would be a big risk to 2021. Yeah, to see if you're looking at the risks that they're out there. I think you'll see that the vaccine being dispersed in an efficient manner is one thing that we need to watch but also then Relations with China just generally, you know, everybody's assuming a czar, we that you know the U. S on DCI China that they'll still have issues that they sold, but they'll work together to try and solve them border than the previous administration. But you know, it's just hot lights. It's still going to be tricky on. Therefore, we may see risk of metal bands of risk off environments around trade tensions from time to time. Yeah, when it comes to the new but an administration as you say, perhaps not a potential reset exactly on January, 20 do you expect, though, that we will see a guess a better relationship than what we had seen under the Trump administration. Well, I think it would be more predictable, which I think is, you know, T China, even if it's still quite company, confrontational in terms of having different objectives and trying to you know they're trying to achieve or modify those that's still going to be the case, but at least it will be done in a way that not through Twitter and 31 arm of the government. I'm saying one thing, and then the president saying something totally different 24 hours later, so I think it will still move in a similar direction. Just be less uncertain Day today.

"With the biden administration taking office in just under a month. You leaders a counting the days until they feel like they can have a new start with an american team. that's more committed to transatlantic relations this week. The us foreign policy chief. Joseph barrell reveal the agenda he hopes to pursue well joining me on the line from brussels. Is our correspondent. Teri schultz terry. It's not an exaggeration to say most e you leaders a hugely relief with the biden win and believe things are going to be different now. Where does the e u. side wants to start well and they've actually released this document now laying out where they believe. The most progress can be made in the fastest and most efficient way. And that's what you high rep josette burrell released yesterday. And they've got four areas where they want to start the europeans. They want to start with corona virus. Response making that again. A global effort with president trump having pulled out of the world health organization saying constantly america first america first when it comes to a vaccine. That's something that does not sit well with the europeans who are committed to making vaccines affordable and available to the entire world on climate. They are very much looking forward to president-elect biden making good on his campaign promise to rejoin the paris climate accord. That's something that suffers without. Us leadership and i think president-elect biden is is committed to doing that the third one is a little a little tougher trade and technology that you use third priority and that's one where you're not going to automatically see any. Us president stop protecting or trying to protect american tech giant's against for example e regulators who want to recoup taxes from from the multinationals. That's going to be somewhere where we we may not see as quick progress but on trade looking at the world trade organization where president trump is just continually attacked and and made it impossible for the wto to get reforms that the europeans also support. I expect that that will be one of the areas that there will be some quick progress and unwed burrell calls global action and he says this is working toward a safer more prosperous and more democratic world and they're hoping that president-elect biden will put more emphasis on human rights on rule of and on basic democratic values that the eu and the us due to a large extent share but is it realistic for the e. You just think that the biden administration shares these views simply going to sign onto this plan. Or i think europeans may be disappointed by the fact that foreign policy is probably not going to be the first thing on on president-elect biden's list he's got to deal with the corona virus that's just raging in the in the us and and the divisiveness that this campaign and actually the trump presidency has brought about in america and he's got to work on that before he can justify to anyone that he's going to be working on with with european leaders but he very much wants to do that. All of his statements during the campaign to to europeans. Were basically i understand. This is not the way the. Us you relationships should work and he will. He does share a lot of these views. He certainly will not be giving comfort to leaders. Like hungary's viktor orban or the polish government. That is rolling back the rights of women. He will have. He will have a few things to say about that. Which president trump left unsaid or probably didn't even believe

"Everyone john worth. I'm hearing sports. Illustrated tennis podcast. Jamie joins me for a grab bag topics. We are midway through the final so hard to make any definitive conclusions there but we can talk about the the back of played so far. We'll talk about twenty twenty one tennis and what the picture is looking like. It's slowly coming into focus but still considerably Blurry and uncertain. We'll talk w. t. awards. There are no more women's tennis events on the calendar. But we can start distributing some honors and just sort of a catchall of tennis topics as we want to say to the finish. But we're not exactly sprinting. Either a stranger that is Finishing under strained conditions and we talk about sort of where the sport is here in mid november twenty twenty so jamie welcome. it's it's been a while. how are you. i'm good. i agree with you. It's a weird year. And i feel like we've been talking a lot about the atp and obviously the atp finals are happening. So i am happy to start by out talking about the wpa and some of these awards all right. let's go. let's let's that. I that's a good idea let's go to That'd be the w. t. a. Does not unlike the wto does not have a finals or twenty twenty. Unfortunately that's An offshoot of having events in china where international sporting events were cancelled months ago. So the vendor playing as we speak in london and there is no there is no comparable women's event. So let's say yeah let's do that. Let's start with the women season over. Why don't we hand out some awards. We genda pivot to london. Mvp award is always a bit strange. But if we're going to give player of the year honors. I feel like the player has to have won a major. Do you agree with that. Yes definitely agree with that. But this year of course We had one less. And i think that i would also classify the majors in two creek corona and post corona. I would almost give a little bit more weight or just feel like there's more discussion for all the majors. That are not the train open you know. Of course that was when all was normal and before all this happened But i know you. You went to your pace in your mailbox but are you. Who's your pick. i think it. It sounds sounds a little. I think you've got to say that the so you can is your twenty twenty. Mvp she won a major and got to the final of another If we play this game sometime if your life depended on a player Would she be your pick and the answer is is probably not and do i think in a head to head match. There are players who are superior. If if she and i o miyasaka played ten times i would think naomi osaka with the majority of those matches. But yeah in this straight year. But i think you're right. There was no wimbledon. There there was a us open but it did not feature you know six top ten players including ash barty the number one player including simona halep included the defending champion and that was That was one sock than we had. The french open which also did not feature ash party. Who is the defending champion. It did not feature. Naomi osaka the australian open before corona had the most flush field. So you can in one that and she reached the final of the french open so she is the only player to have won a major and got into the final of another and in this stranger. It's probably appropriate. We have a strange choice but sonya sofia kenyon is my Twenty twenty mvp will by you. I hear you on that. And i think those are all good points. I in you know so that we aren't agreeing here on all of these under some Interest to this conversation. I'm going to take a different pic. i'm gonna go with naomi osaka and i think that In speaking about mvp sort of in the Like a of a lot of awards that are giving out at this time of the year including essays own award sportsperson of the year. It's not just about what's happening on the court. It's just not about results per se about other things that This player has done. So i think that For me. I think niamey osaka. Of course like you said kennan if you're just talking about reaching a final winning final In a major. She's done that but osaka has not only one. But also use her platform and she's spoken up and she's gone beyond the court and i think that you know if we're talking if you're looking at that list of choices here And you check the box with a major win in for me. You check the box with all the other outside stuff off the court that she's done so that's my pick.

"wto " Discussed on Remainiacs - the Brexit Podcast

"MP Stephen Doughty on how he discovered the plot and ruined mocks week. I managed to find out the probation was going to happen in the middle of the night I mean it was it was quite short email. I got back very late. Cardiff and I caught a tip from a couple of journalists. He texted me saying this very weird rumor going around parents prorogation and possibly ministers going up to Scotland to see the Queen Myself. I said shooting out this is I'm GonNa Call Buckingham Palace. You got through the switchboard. Stephen Dow's level is discussing with some privy councillors who are very interested interested to know whether or not there is a meeting of the Privy Council tomorrow because this is a very significant constitutional issue and essentially call denial from a press officer. This was happening anyway at least a nondenominational A. I don't really know what's going on story. I don't blame the individual officer but I was able to ascertain that the queen's private secretary had gone to Moro uh-huh which of course made me slightly suspicious because they don't go that all the time and they go their businesses to be transacted anyway the the next few hours. I was able to establish the in fact three three Privy Councillors Jacob result being one of them were on their way to Scotland and we were able then to alert the media so that we could get cameras to the Apple Santa Bowel moral and then of course by the early morning we get the full thing with them broken in in the media He's a longtime favorite of the show and a beloved national treasure. How much do you know about dominic coming. We talk about them a lot. Positive much is especially crucial this week so we thought we should dedicate sometime at the PM's very own beacon not least as Harry Lambert has written a fascinating profiled the New Statesman this week so it's a good meaty long read Philip interesting details. What did you make the profile. What did you learn that you didn't know before well. I was trying to find out what it was that not so much what he believes because it's clear what he believes in it's just shaking everything up and destroying in order to create but what does he want to change actually about but you society about the lives of and this sounds boringly earnest doesn't it. I get a lot of flack sometimes of being boring but what does he actually want to shake. It reminded me a lot as a policy of which of course was one of those key education policies if not his key education policy of Academy Academy schools now basically that's all about taking schools out of local authority control and putting them into giving them over control of academies and supposedly giving them more control over their future but does he actually improve the schools. The evidence is in now and the answer is no not necessarily at all it doesn't there's no systematic evidence that shows that it improves them so it's all about just going in there and shaking things up for the sake of shaking things up and disturbing and making making things just changing structures now okay great. You've changed structures but the trouble is then you have to have new structures to on the new systems and you end up with the same old bureaucracies and the same old problems and I as a philosophy eh I find this this tedious frankly because it's just all about throwing the Lego up in the air and then leaving it for someone else to pick up. I think that when I had child capone earlier I was being flipping but he did when helping in duncan-smith Defy David Davis he gave him the advice find the toughest guy in the room. David Davis embrace him like a brother and then just laugh slamming his head against the wall which is literally a quote from Al Capone mm-hmm did so there were lots of things that made him seem less than likable did anything in the pace make you warm to him. was there any any of his sort of ambitions where you just thought thought you had some sympathy. No Not really articulate sorry I tried. I honestly tried but for me. It was it was summed up by something he said which was was quoted in the piece way. He says that the ordinary voter is incapable of abstract sort and and that is an incredibly arrogant and also incredibly cynical thing to say about voters. It's it's it's a council despair to suggest that people can actually see beyond. Wha- what they're immediately confronted with the I I found that incredibly sad depressing you know so I think what it reminded me of and then I realized that it was one of those some Kenny West interviews around the China uses when he claimed to be Steve Jobs Podcastone Walt Disney rolled into only. It's just like Bismarck instead of Disney. Is this something kind of reading this profile. It was something selective absurd about him. I didn't think so I thought he it. It was a pretty good pace. It was really interesting. I thought he he pretty much fitted. A mode I see predominantly with men over and over which is the sort of simmering rage and frustration at the way things are but rose said like no real clear idea of what is the Yo so angry about in the first place on exactly what the fuck is. He's so angry about it doesn't civil service functions or anything is that it functions shitloads career them off but like I just feel like I can get through that without using my shit actually having a conversation about it so it seems to strike me those sort of people you look at them and okay what I think about you psychologically rather than politically because I don't see that there's enough political content to really engage in and I do see that personality type quite it's a lot and they usually concern print predominantly because company. Tony gets you so far remained a certain degree of countries. You've got an adversarial system. We have it in law. We have it in politics. We have it in debates. We have it inside the good I appreciate the way that that works and why that's important to human development but do you need a capacity to think what actually I want to work doc with others to achieve certain things. The guy only take you so far if he's obsessed with conflict I'm using the word he advised because it is almost always is guys do this and he seems to me to be a classic example of that problems are came away from it just thinking night. I just you know I would much rather you did fuck off. Frankly I know it's ironic. Considering we're devoting a segment to a long read about Dominic Cummings but rose chief think that there is a the danger of becoming to sort of fascinated with this with this sort of figure people love the idea of the the sort of the powerful kind of respite in figure he's being you know playboy Bendik cumberbatch on telly There's always gonNA gossip about him. He's always coming out and just saying like you know provocative. Shit is just perhaps a little too enthralled by him in a kind of the game of political personalities I ah Oh you know how how much energy do we need to devote to working out. What makes him tick. I think we do I mean obviously he's loving it which is a disincentive to overly psychoanalyzing him because he he's. He's just loving it so much but ultimately he's an totally unelected unelected individual who has been placed in a position of incredible power because Johnson as you know lots of people predicted is not at all interested in micromanaging stuff quite the opposite he just wants to delegate as much as he can to other people and then take the credit and in this case I think she's delegated for more than even he expected to to comings and he's always outsource large section of his brain to cummings but the interesting thing is here we have not just him in the Conservative Party or yet. Don't even know if he's a remember. Conservative Party didn't that profile say he had actually been bothered join yet but anyway victim or even vote for them but again you know destruction but we have him him and on the other side we have shames mill with Corbin who performs a very similar function but it'd be much less analyzed of course because he's leader the opposition position not prime minister yet so we have these two people completely unelected exerting a huge amount of power at the top of British politics and so yeah I do think we need to think about what he believes in if anything and what how he operates Ooh Ooh we're going to stay with us. Special Guest Chris Southwest Secretary the General of the International Chamber of Commerce. This is very much ends ballpark so I'm GONNA. Let you so what's going to happen to us if if brexit takes place in Britain. WTO tariff schedule there's all sorts of things we have to sort out that would previously have been done John by the given the circumstance which is taking place. How's that GONNA shape out for well. I think you know it's it's interesting for me. I mean I obviously watch three and a half years ago. I didn't know much about WTO or I I went looking around asking spending time down there myself and I'm amazed at just the lack of knowledge of the language and and level of debate is appalling some of it's just frightening completely wrong when you come out on WTO rules. Y- you you are one country one hundred fifty countries you know when you're operating in the he you you're operating in a in a sort of team really and so you you already have so common rules in the W have to negotiate with everybody together what's his an infinitely finitely more complicated it goes much slow pace for those very reasons and so in brexit environment in the UK come out of the EU one year a smaller player when when everybody else in the world is grouping up so you're up against countries with less leverage 'cause you're you ju- numbers game less people smaller market than Europe in that case you know you'll leverage points around the table less and so you just you just have to be realistic. I mean no longer in the primarily. The Premier League is the US China in a year those are the big players and they dictate and shape much of global trade and how global trade operates you come down into into sort of a mid tier alongside other countries like the Canadians Brazilians Japanese you know these countries are incredibly good at diplomacy now the UK. It has the assets through that we're very good diplomatic country but not if we're behaving the way we all but we have to behave different. We can't try and pretend that we're in the primarily Rinat. We have what we have to get better at is building the bridges between the countries because it's in our interest to do that to get the deals. You've got to really work those those relationships in order. Oh to then get alliances build build a commonality around ideas and then of course you start to to oil the wheels and get tragic but all means give and take right this idea that you can go out and I'd say the UK is doing Xyz doesn't work like that. A trade deal is a deal between two parties. There is no deal unless both parties agree and it's pretty nuts and bolts stuff you know so you've got to sit down and everyone has their own priorities and so if you're going to talk to New Zealand is they want more lamb more of the landmark have you talked to the Indians they want more labor coming in into the services market here and so you know everyone has to give and take and so that and that will be tough for the UK on its own you know when it's building building trade policy capability in the ocean capable if you haven't had for forty years and so you know I it's it's GonNa take a long time and when you're up against the Chinese or the US us the these are highly sophisticated. You know huge teams a veteran negotiators. You can't just waltz around and trump. Pretend that you you know you are going to get this an easy ride not going to get an easier ride. There's no such thing as friends in a trade deal. you know we may share ideas but at the the end of the day is hard nuts and bolts negotiation around hard issues that you won't necessarily like and of course that's where it becomes important in. Brexit context that we don't just carry on doing trade deals as we've always done. We've got to take a much more inclusive approach. We've got to engage more with the unions the civil society the NGOs so that when we get to the point of negotiated deal where all on board an you can see that with the USDA were carrying on talking about a US UK deal as if nothing's happened and I can tell you now that.
