Fresh update on "westminster" discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence

"The cause of Scottish independence. But Britain's vote two years later to leave the European Union, a move that the majority of Scots opposed had put the issue back on the table. My determination is to secure a process that allows the people of Scotland, whether yes, nor or yet to be decided to express their views in a legal constitutional referendum so that the majority view can be established fairly and democratic. Maybe just maybe it's a twice in a lifetime chance. Nicholas sturgeon has said Scotland will head for another referendum on independence that's going to take place. She says on the 19th of October 2023, Matthew hall house is The Economist's British political correspondent. There is a hitch, the British government contends that the meaning of the UK constitution is that only it can decide whether there will be a referendum. So you're heading for a another stalemate. So the irony here is that Scotland can not independently hold an independence referendum it has to get permission from Westminster. How likely is that? Under this promise, it is phenomenally unlikely that Boris Johnson would agree to a second independence referendum. He does not see the constitutional case for it. He does not see the political case for he is under no pressure from his own voters, his own MPs, department members of the Conservative Party to do it. And he has no desire to be the prime minister who sees the breakup of the United Kingdom. And he said as much this week. I think the important point to make is that we think the number one priority for the country is the economic pressures, the spikes in the cost of energy, our plan for a stronger economy, certainly means that we think that we're stronger working together. But we have good relations with us with Scottish government. We'll see what you have to say. And so is it case closed? Is there any way for Scotland to push forward with this referendum without the consent of the British government? So this is a plan that Nicholas sturgeon set out. She's very keen that any referendum is observed as legal and as properly constitutional. Her argument is that if you simply hold a referendum in the Scottish government organizes itself and it's not recognized either by the UK government or those overseas, it doesn't actually get you to independence. You've just had a big street party and not much more than that. So her plan is that she will test this question on the exact meaning of the Scotland act, which acts as the constitutional statute that sets out of the parameters of devolution. At the Supreme Court. Now, the Scottish government's argument seems to be that since referenda are sort of by definition advisory, they don't have any automatic legal effect, then that might be within scope of the Scotland act, which simply says that the union itself is reserved to Westminster. Now, it has to be said, most constitutional watches are fairly pessimistic about miss sturgeon's chances, not least because we have seen under the current presidency of the UK Supreme Court. The president is lord read a very conservative understanding of the scope of the Scottish parliament's powers and a real assertion of the primacy of the Westminster parliament. So it's not looking like that's going to succeed, but you will just have to wait and see what unfolds in court. But with the odds stacked against her in this way, why is she pushing for this again? Well, she's pushing for this again for a number of reasons. One is that the pursuit of Scottish independence is the raison veteran of the SNP. It simply wouldn't be a political force if it didn't believe that. Why now? Well, the short history is in 2014, there was referendum, the pro union side won by a ten point margin. The Brexit referendum of 2016 in which Britain spread to leave the EU or their majority of Scots voted in favor of remaining in the EU coupled with the adventure of Boris Johnson's premiership. He's a fantastically unpopular in Scotland, has really generated the sense in the nationalist movement that this is it. This is their window. It really is now or never. So studio is feeling this huge amount of pressure from her own members who are incredibly impatient to see this second referendum that she's been talking about now for 6 years to really come to fruition. And given how difficult you say it could be, does she have a plan here, a strategy for getting what she wants? So the first leg of her plan is stress Boris Johnson. The second leg of her plan is to test the question in Supreme Court and see if they will create a legal avenue through which she can run. The third leg is to say that failing both of those options. She will turn the next general election, which we expect to take place in 2024, where it could be sooner into a de facto referendum. So if more than 50% of voters vote in favor of independence through their choice of parties and it's worth stating that the details of how this is going to work have not been laid out yet, because she says that their choice at the ballot box will act as a de facto referendum and create a new mandate for independence. One way to interpret all this is about a leader who is under intense pressure from homeroom members to spell out avenues to something which it is not apparent to exists. And so if you need to set new deadlines, new targets offer clues of new routes forward in order to basically keep the show on the road. So the question is, who faces pressure from the question of Scottish independence? Is it Boris Johnson, who is under pressure here, or is it Nicola Sturgeon? But if you look at the dynamics within their own parties, it really is a sturgeon who's facing the pressure to deliver an outcome on this. Which is to say that it's only she who's taking a risk that this won't have broader effects on British politics. So all the risk is on her side for this reason. The S&P members and the broader discourse nationalist movement are very, very keen to see a referendum. And it really sort of raises existential questions for them if there is not an avenue through which that can be delivered. On the Conservative Party side, Johnson's under no pressure at all to a C two a referendum. His position is that one shouldn't happen because there's no demand for it in Scotland and it's constitutionally proper for him to refuse it. Conservative Party MPs do not want a referendum concept party members don't want one on several party voters don't want one either. There is no part of the Conservative Party's electoral coalition which relies on getting support from people who want Scottish independence. So he's intensely comfortable refusing again and again. Now more than that, actually, the threat or the specter of a referendum is incredibly useful for him because it allows the Conservative Party to campaign as a unionist forstner in elections and it allows Boris Johnson to say that if you vote labor, you are risking a second referendum on Scottish independence because labor will team up with the S&P and team up with the Lib Dems in a sort of a big unwieldy gangly coalition that will let this happen. So he can go around England, he can go around Scotland and say the only way to stop this, the only way to save the United Kingdom is to vote conservative. Now that's a pretty crude message lots of people don't like it, but it has proven quite effective in recent years and sturgeons announcement yesterday would seem to me to only reanimate that message and to give it a fresh lease of life. So what you see in your crystal ball is that essentially this is a doomed effort that is only going to empower the very man that they dislike so much. It is going to empower him. It will sustain Nicola Sturgeon, perhaps at the top of her party and help further her dominance of Scottish electoral politics. It will support Boris Johnson as he needs something to campaign on at the next general election and truth be told with the economy in the state it's in and with public services in the state they're in. We really need some ammunition for his electoral offensive. So they are the winners of this stalemate. The big loser is the Labor Party, which would rather the whole issue went away. Thanks very much for.

Larry Taunton Deals With Shootings by Looking at Plain-as-Day Facts

"It. We're talking about the ivaldi massacre 19 children killed, murdered. What is the, what is the main point in your Twitter thread? I know what it is, but I want you to explain it. Yeah, sure. Well, I mean, Democrats have responded to this very predictably. I mean, they've seized upon this. Politicized it and made it all about, you know, how the Second Amendment is out of date. There need to be gun seizures, buybacks, further gun restrictions, all of these kinds of things. And that led me to really start thinking Eric about the fact that just a few years ago when I was writing my book around the world and more than 80 days, I can undertake in kind of the unique task of traveling to places where there had been mass shootings, almost all of them in Europe. And so I was at, you know, went to Stockholm, and I was interviewing people there. After the truck attack, a guy stole a beer truck and he drove straight down a pedestrian, a fashionable pedestrian district and just mowed down women and children. Westminster bridge in London, London Bridge. I went to Paris to Charlie Hebdo, where there were a number of people killed just a short walk away to the back to clan where about 90 were killed in the mass shooting there. It was also in Nigeria as you well know, and I was there, you know, to bring attention to the fact that many Christians, either they're horribly persecuted, there's just been another attack on Christians in that country in the last couple of days. And so when I see all this talk about gun seizures or, you know, how if we restrict gun the ability to buy guns to access them, then it's going to solve this problem. And I know that that just simply isn't true. First of all, the shootings that we see in Europe is very difficult to buy gun in Europe. And yet somehow these terrors all manage to get

Boris Johnson Hopes to Meet Biden for Talks at White House

"British media reports that prime minister. Boris johnson will travel to washington later this month for a frank conversation with the us. President joe biden. The means income says attesting time for the special relationship between washington and london. With both johnson's allies and foes in westminster questioning whether they can rely on. Us support after the hasty withdrawal of american forces from afghanistan. Let's get the latest now with thomas gift director of the ucla sensor on us politics. Thank you very much for joining us this afternoon. Thomas so first of all. How necessary is this face to face. Meeting between these lead us. Well it's great to be with you. Marcus and thanks so much for joining me. I think it's particularly significant time for the two leaders to mate especially given what happened in the aftermath of afghanistan. I think the first point to note here is really the obvious that boris johnson is reaching out to joe biden about holding a meeting and not the other way around reflects the rather straightforward state of affairs that the uk needs the united states more than the united states needs the uk both countries of course would prefer to be on good terms with one another and a healthy working transatlantic. Collaboration is in the interest of both london and washington. However despite the special relationship the power imbalance is real. And i think what we saw with afghanistan and what the johnson administration really has to come to terms with is that joe biden is not unlike any other leader in that. He's going to prioritize interest of his home country. It's clear that he wanted out about kenniston that he thought exiting afghanistan was in the best interest of the united states and that very little would've changed his mind. And that was the case. Regardless of what the u k thought or any other western ally for that matter but against this backdrop. I think it is a timely opportunity for both leaders to get together over over a table and kind of talk through things. What happened and how they can do things better

Creating the Oxford English Dictionary

"London physiological logical. Society is the oldest organisation in great britain dedicated to the study of language formed in eighteen. Forty two one of their first objectives was to create a list of the deficiencies of the english language by eighteen. Eighty four they had hatched the idea of creating a new dictionary. That would solve the problems. They saw in current dictionaries. The process of whoever was incredibly slow. It took until eighteen fifty seven to establish a committee to create a list of unregistered words. These are words that weren't in current dictionaries or were poorly defined. If this had been the extent of what the illogical society had done. I wouldn't be doing an episode about this. The man who headed up. The committee was richard chenevix-trench. Trench was an interested in just coming up with a list of unregistered words. His ambition was much greater the report he produced with something else entirely. His report was titled on some deficiencies in our english dictionaries. It detailed all of the problems with current english language dictionaries in the nineteenth century. He noted problems. With the lack of coverage of obsolete words histories of words synonyms of words in poor examples and illustrations of words. What trench propose wasn't just a dictionary like the society had considered in the past. Trench was proposing writing the dictionary the most comprehensive dictionary of the english language. It wouldn't just be a list of words but of all of the words no longer in use and the history of all the words and where they came from. This would be a massive massive undertaking in eighteen fifty-eight the illogical society formerly called for the creation of a new dictionary which they called a new english dictionary on historical principles. First order of business was hiring someone to be the editor. Trench wasn't able to take on the assignment. As he was appointed the dean of westminster abbey. The job fell to herbert coleridge. Coleridge was only twenty nine. When he was appointed in eighteen sixty he created the outline in strategy for the entire project. He began the system to categorize the hundreds of thousands of quotes which would be required.

Let's get the latest now with george parker political editor at the financial times. Thank you for joining us. George just bring us up to speed. I on what we can expect from today. Well we're going to have to wait very long. See precisely what the british government's gonna say in this regard. There's gonna be a statement to the house of commons by the northern secretary brandon. Lewis in about half an hour's time where he's also going to publish a government statement on how it sees the future of the brexit deal relating to ireland's but essentially What's happened here. Since brexit took effect is that the uk government regards the checks on goods passing between the mainland of great britain's northern ireland to be fought too onerous. They think the eu interpreting the deal and as far too legalistic away and it's created tensions in northern ireland where the pro uk unionists community very much disliked. The idea of any sort of trade off between northern ireland and the rest of the united kingdom shots background so it and what the government is expected to announce today is it wants to basically get rid of those checks on goods travelling between raping the person in northern ireland. Right much more sort of honesty books. Kind of approach where british Goods thrive in northern ireland. That they'll be some sort of guarantee sticker on the mall. Something saying that. The could should only go into circulation in northern ireland across across the open land border into ireland which of course remains possibly even single market.

It's 99% of the time, the actuator And then they just take their turn all the way around the other other three doors to they can they can, But it's not a common thing that you see the only car that I remember that had that problem that every single door would do that. Was the eighties Nissan Maximus. For some reason, they had door actuator problems, and you could do a driver side and then three months later, they come back in the passenger side. And then three months later, they do the driver's side rear door. And then four months later, I mean, it drove people crazy, but that was the mid eighties maximum had that problem, but most cars If you haven't actuator problem in a car it generally at the most. Maybe two out of the four will have that problem for as long as your own the car most time. Just the one Is that a small part is a zafar is cost with the Honda parts could be anywhere from $75 to about $200 per actuator. And that most like to intellectual count, I imagine. Yes, it does. Yep. All right. Three. Appreciate your help, Dave. Thanks. And there, there's two a good 2021 for all your loyal listeners. Amen to that rich. Amen to that, buddy. Thank you so much. Take care. Bye bye now. Larry is in Westminster. Hey, Larry, how you doing? Good morning days. Good morning. I have? Well, actually, it's a friend has a 2008 vic. Uh huh. And he took it in for old change, and he needed a starter, he said so anyway. Had 130,000 miles on it. Okay. After he got the old changed and the starter put on, he noticed all the sudden it had 230,000 miles on it. What in the world would cause I it Probably. What's happened is somebody may have hit that over two kilometers instead of miles. I'm there's no other way that can be done. The dealership can't even change knowledge on cars unless they replace the whole odometer on do it with a new one. So I don't think that's the case, but it may have been accidentally switched over. Two kilometers, so I would check that first when you read the mileage and also the speedometer gonna have to check and see if it says kilometers instead of miles. That's my only guess There's no there's no other reason for that to happen. They go from 1 30 to 230. So that would be my only guest right there. Okay, I'll check it out for him. All right. You got to check to see if it says kilometers anywhere and then on the dash. That's where you could make the adjustment between kilometers and Odometer that that way these cars were set for all areas of the world. They don't have to be redesigned for Canada or other areas of the world that use kilometers, so they have it so you could do that, But that's what I think happened on this. I think you get accidentally turned over two kilometers, so there's a button on the dash. Yes..

"Across building which you saw earlier in this walk. So the organization's of MI6 and MI5 are getting grander and larger every year. But Center means is special to me. It's special too many Cold War followers. It has a Division Bell in there, which means that an MP who is sitting in the bar knows when the votes about to happen in Parliament can Scurry off to Westminster to vote and it's a really nice hotel. It's not expensive by London standards. It's not huge. It's tucked out of the way. You might have found it difficult to find if you don't have your mom hand but Center means it's well worth a visit and a drink in the bar. If not a night or two to explore Cold War London retrace your steps away from determines hotel and you will head around to Saint James's Park Tube Station just outside the station you can stop and look up at the broad where buildings I believe it's number 50 now a Regus office just like looking Fieldhouse. It's a normal office building now, but it used to be the HQ of MI6 in John le carre's day and it's where John the Carrow Road some of his books. I believe including the Spy Who Came in from the cold completely different. And Prospect to the current Vauxhall cross building much smaller more compact dingy dark corridors brick Sandstone, but I really like this building. I love the roof. I like the fact that it's right off the two but nobody knew who worked here. The sign was the one that said Minimax fire extinguisher company of ruislip, but for me for any John le carre a fan to think of him writing his most famous works in a building just before he quit the service and then got the reputation and success that he needed to concentrate on his writing and to follow that up with Tinker Tailor squash special occasion for us. Some James is part of tube is also a special location in many ways as the tube station used by the spies if they weren't catching the bus to this area. If you follow the road around corner you will soon see the millage Jaws. Before the split under John Reid and if you keep walking around the corner, you'll eventually come to Queen. Anne's gate houses in this straight the town house dog. I'm moving back into private residences now and they cost upwards of ten or Twenty million pounds each but not so long ago. They were used as offices partly because they were so expensive including the National Trust and wrong corner and indeed the townhouse of Mansfield Cummings in MI6 behind you. So if you look for number 21, you will find Smith Cummings house the early offices of MI6 apparently a tunnel in the basement into the main MI6 building in the background. So Smith coming could get in and out of work very easily at all hours of the day and night without being accosted or spotted em the best story I can think of about Smith coming who was the original see in many ways and started the tradition of signing letters with the letter C in green fountain pen ink the best story about Smith Cummings is about a wooden leg. He was an absolute derring-do hero and he lost his leg in another incident which I can never quite remember. But anyway, he had a wooden leg and he ye To shock people at interviews new recruits with what you could do with this leg. He had a trouser over it. So it looked if he was seated like a normal leg and he would ask the young lacrosse what they would do what they would be prepared to do for their country. Would you do this? He would say with grand flourish as he stabbed his leg with a compass or a sharp pain even a knife down the young boys as they were would Flinch not knowing that he was stemming it into his wooden prosthetic leg. So Smith coming was very serious man of a successful man, but not without a sense of humor. We can then make our way further along Queen. Anne's gate to 16 to 18, which was an office used by the British Army and we're baden-powell Lord baden-powell in the founder of the page boy scouting movement used to work baden-powell was an interesting chap. He had a career in the military and I think realized the importance of intelligence and wage. Reservation and careful watching and he was an artist and a photographer himself as well and lots of spies back then would use the guise of a tourist cuz it gave you an excuse for carrying a camera but he liked to do sketching as well and he went to Dalmatia which is now in Croatia and copied down aspects of a fortress. They're in great detail, but on every second page, he would draw pictures of insects and butterflies and this kind of thing. So anybody glancing through his book on the front of each page would see pictures of insects and butterflies and on the other side if they could not looking really closely they'd missed the pictures of the fortresses. So baden-powell really had a a good War an interesting career in the military before he founded the Boy Scout moose, which was effectively a training ground for the military in many ways and any boys who like the scales could then be recruited into the military later on if they wanted to continue that as a career. I was in the school. A little boys in the eighties and seventies were I think it it is still going of course, but perhaps not quite essentially in the lives of British youth today as they were back then took him now towards the pub. I think it's called the two chairman and just passed the the pub you will see cockpit steps down and apparently there was a cockpit an area for fighting cocks wage at gamble on them back in the day but down cockpit steps across the road in doesn't James's Park and take a hard, right? So you have sort of following the road, but it's nice to walk just inside the park and you're heading towards wage which foreign office you're also heading towards the British treasury, but that's not as interesting for our purposes. So outside the British foreign office is the official end for the walk but it allows me to talk about the fact of Parliament that almost started this war when we talked about MI6 being a purpose-built building that up to 1994 at a time when MI6 became officially a government Department birth. Became officially legally represented part of that act of parliament section seven is given over to the process by which MI6 agents can break the loss of former countries overseas and those two things are important. They are not allowed to break British laws and they are not allowed to break laws in Britain, but they can absolve themselves of prosecution in Britain at least using section seven. However, there is a detailed process behind this and essentially what happens is that MI6 have to put together a detailed document showing what laws they need to brag why we're kind who give all the justifications this document is then sent to the foreign secretary who then signs it off, but it's very specific and some people try to show that this section seven means a license to Kelly's is a thing in British law, which it isn't Licensed to Kill as used by Ian Fleming and James Bond suggest that the holder of this past has a free card which allows To kill anybody there like whenever they're like wherever they like this is not the case. There is no license to Kill and section 7 is not giving you that right. However, because the rules and the protocol still shrouded in secrecy and is now the subject of a court case to try and expose it. It does lead to these wild imaginings. And in fact, Jack straw did sign off some nefarious activities to do with extraordinary rendition. We're British Secret Service agents abducted certain other individuals. I believe syrians for them to be interrogated by the CIA and waterboarded and all those nasty things which have now been discredited but it was MI6 that helped that to happen, even though it was illegal and it is strongly believe that was signed off by the then former could Cherry Jack straw this did get to court or at least eight nearly got to court before surprised surprised the British government settled for a very large amount of money and the case disappears. So we do not know specifically that section seven was used but we are pretty sure that MI6 did abduct people whether they have ever killed people is a moot point surely it will come out in future if it they have of course they shooting of Irish dissidents by MI6 on Gibraltar is a big case that is still not been fully understood and resolved. I don't think but the idea that an individual can be given a carte blanche license to Kill is nonsense as this current court case goes through we will see more perhaps about the process by which they've done and whether killing is explicitly ruled out or not whether that is left open-ended. We don't know but certainly section seven in the ACT, which I will link to in. The show notes is very short on a brief and has recently been amended to allow gchq staff to break laws as well. And there are sections in there which relate to electronic eavesdropping and the ability to break laws to do a job. Not even though they might be carried out on British soil, which is quite interesting. It's one thing to break laws abroad perhaps you may disagree is a different thing to break laws here remotely using computers off and then try and claim immunity from prosecution. But that's what section seven allows is very short but very tantalizing and very interesting and I always stop the war there because the foreign office. Is the British State office which runs MI6 effectively at least has oversight of MI6 in the same way that the home office has oversight over MI5 that distinction itself can cause addiction the idea of a James Bond Licensed to Kill need squashing, but there is still that tantalizing possibility that MI6 agents could with the permission of the government kill foreign terrorists foreign dissidents foreign enemies and on that grand note we end the walk I ended here because the foreign office is so beautiful and ground and it's so short walk to Westminster tube. But you may also like to take a walk along horseguards towards the mail just for a quick look at the police memorial especially as the British policeman was stabbed recently found outside Westminster palace and his name has now been added to the memorial but it commemorates all the British police officers Through The Years who have been killed and active duty and is a worthwhile remembrance that although MI6 might seem distant detached remote exotic exciting and lethal they're raised much closer to the front line a large police officer the Metropolitan Police under the police forces to protecting us from danger on a daily basis putting their own lives at risk and that is the serious not message. But the serious aspect to this it may be a lot of fun. There may be a tourist activity for us. But ultimately MI6 MI5 gchq and the police are there to protect British people and dog Commercial and National interest and I have to remind myself of that when I'm buried in the archives looking at what might or not have happened in 1960 in Berlin for example, but it is true threat remembering and I will leave you here. You can walk up to Trafalgar Square if you want the police memorial or you can walk over to Westminster Tube Station if you're still at the phone office, I hope you've enjoyed this walk. I really enjoy because it's got such dramatic sites, but it is the longest walk and some people find that a little bit too long a little bit too quick. I do like to try and Rush between the points to get more time to talk. So at least when a virtual tours you can now go at your own pace, perhaps you're outside the UK and can't get here at the moment and wish to just listen, which is great too, but I will put as much into the show notes and onto the blogs as I can to show you the pictures and the sites that you will miss if you were not able to make it London this year. Thank you for listening and I hope to see you again soon on the podcast. You can also sign up you suck. Email address for newsletters on the website ww.w. Spies of London..

I did mentioned that in recent years gchq have moved out of this area. They used to have an office in palmistry. However, it's impossible to locate on Google Maps. It should be labeled former gchc or something to make my life easier and I can't remember which side of the street it's on and it takes you quite a bit out of your way. So I will.

"And I have here a note that suggests. It was once called lockets. He would often eat there and one evening as he was out Irish terrorists planted a bomb amongst the flower baskets outside. The restaurant outside Morris is flat because he was watched Around the Clock Metropolitan Police Special Branch realized what was going on and defused the bomb, but this perhaps to show why there was so much secrecy around Mi sex at least in the sixties and seventies and perhaps Why by the nineties it seemed a bit ridiculous. There were genuine threats to Secretary of State for Northern Ireland including area Nev who you will meet in my Baker Street World War Two war and also to members of the police and security services at that time. There were a natural Target for terrorist activity. So Oldfield lived in the shadows. He lived here in March from Court, which all over is very handy for today's temps house MI5 was quite a walk from Broadway building wage. You will see more Broadway buildings later in this work. So we walk back along Marshall Street from Marshall Court and Shepherds towards the main road. The main road is horseferry Road, and you will soon come to a Crossroads diagonally opposite you is the modern-day home office. It's a very modern building. There's rainbow glass above the front entrance. No need to spend much time here except that this was the location because it was quiet or often spoke about the Bulgarian umbrella murder true to say that the Bulgarian umbrella murder had nothing with MI5 but it's a quiet spot for a longer story. So come off the main road down one of the side streets to listen this one. So back in the seventies ricin was a deadly poison in the way that perhaps polonium or novice your car today. There was no antidote and a good dose of ricin would ensure death back. Then there was a Bulgarian dissident had become a journalist, which is All that parallels to Alexander litvinenko who is mentioned in my Mayfair walk. But Georgi Markov or Yogi Markov was known to the Secret Service known to be an anti-communist months later and fled to London to work as a journalist. He was not safe in London in the same way that Sergei skripal and Alexander litvinenko or not. Although Markoff was Bulgarian. It was a communist country with much of the same Sinister secret Services one morning as Mark office walking across the bridge across the Thames. He felt a sharp pain in his thigh. And as he spun round he saw a man dropping an umbrella and then hurrying off in a taxi. This seems to me to be the only evidence we have that it was the umbrella used to deliver the rice and pellets into Mark offs leg. He felt unwell let that day and went to hospital where he later died. The ricin pallet was found during the post-mortem. Now, the interesting thing to me here is that after they were dead. Actually investigated this they found a copycat assassination attempt in Paris a few weeks earlier on another person where the rights in Pallet was not firmly lodged or a went wrong didn't result in the death of the target. But it shows that the Communists were using this the pellet in the leg the metal pellet containing ricin which would then be slowly released into the bloodstream and showing death safely after the Assassin fled has all the Hallmarks of the polonium and novichok killings. They are silent killings poison based killings with off of a delay to make sure that the Assassins can flee the country before the alarm is raised. I'm not convinced about the umbrella rest of delivery mechanism. And neither is the Berlin Spy Museum would have a replica of what they think the umbrella might have been like, but they're quite clear that they don't believe it was used one reason I have is that simply a metre-long walking umbrella all month? Might look like a gun from a distance. We're not talking about firing a pellet out of a gun in this case. The umbrella was stabbed into the leg and then the rice and released perhaps with a button and a spring mechanism. He was not fired like a projectile if it had been fired like a projectile. The Assassin would not have needed to walk past marked off which is what happened on this occasion. My belief is that device perhaps more like an EpiPen was used to short device. Perhaps like a fat felt tip, which could be easily thrust against the skin and then a button could be pressed to release a small palate perhaps through needlepoint or a sharp end into the bloodstream. This will be much easier to deliver easier to make easier to transport across International borders and just generally more effective but as with all of these stories, we will never know the whole truth. All we know is that Markov did die he was assassinated the the poison was racing and it did happen dead. London the next foreign dissident to be killed on British soil was Alexander litvinenko in 2006. This Walker's had a couple of different routes over its lifetime. It's always been hard to connect. This temps house home office area on Halls Ferry Road to Broadway buildings and the old mi-sex and then on to some James's Park and the foreign office. This is one area where a virtual walk really comes into its own because we are not quite so strictly tied to geography however in recent years. I've wanted to focus a little bit on Westminster school and Sanctuary buildings. So we'll walk back towards the river along the riverbank to Westminster Cathedral where you will take a left into the Courtyard by Westminster school. Now, the reason for stopping here at Westminster is partly that it's in the shadow of old feed which is a grand sight for any tourist. But also it's the school where Kim philby and his father went. It's a private school and the choir boys here sing in the cathedral during big state wage. Thanks to very privileged position right in the heart of British Society both geographically and metaphorically and this helps to explain why it was the Americans who had to discover filthy. He was so much part of the establishment including his father. He was so well-liked charismatic and well-known that nobody least of all the British prime minister ever suspected him of being capable of spying for the Russians, but for whatever reason and we will certainly visit philby again in more detail in a future episode. He did turn to spying. He did believe that communism was the answer to fax them and he did lead others one way or another to early deaths including the rosenbergs in America Phillippe is also mentioned in my guy Burgess special episode, which has already been recorded song. We passed through the courtyard out the other side and take a left outside Westminster school and you will immediately see on your hard left Sanctuary buildings, which was the e Quarters of all swirled Mosley's British Union of fascists in the thirties mostly was known also as the husband of Diana mitford, which brings in the mitford who you may remember my maratho walk sister Nancy used to work at Heywood Hill, which was George Smiley his favorite Bookshop not too much to say about the British Union of fascists because they belong to a time period before or a second world war and perhaps during the second world war. Whereas we are focusing more in this work on the Cold War, but certainly the fight against the fascists the fight later on against Russia was the context in which the Cold War was fought and it's an important part of British International history in Western Europe, so I would like to come back to them in future, but for now take a look at the buildings. It's a really nice office. It's no longer used by any political party and we will walk back towards Broadway towards Saint James's Park Tube Station and artillery Mansions just to remind you that dog. Root and the points on this guided walk are available on Google Maps and the link is in the show notes. So after a short walk we arrived at artillery mansions and you can see through the archway that it's a couple of flats bit like dolphins Square similar time. I think but much smaller, but it's arranged around a central Courtyard and this is where George Blake lived there was also connection to gravel win and loss of ski but George Blake is the one that draws me here because I followed his life his history particularly through the play cell mates, which was revived recently at the Hampstead theatre cellmate shows the George Blake was perhaps the unluckiest of the Russian spies the Russian moles and some people say that's because he wasn't from the upper middle class upper class establishment. He was not British either. He was named back to the UK, but had worked with the UK within our interests in Korea and got a taste for military and Espionage work, but he was definitely from the wrong side of the tracks off. He is the only one of the Russian moles to have served a prison sentence and he was helped to escape by an Irish prisoner who hardly felt sorry for him and also liked danger himself. So George Blake was sprung out of wormwood scrubs prison and escaped to Moscow where he lived for the rest of his life came across Phil B and the others but none of the others went to prison interestingly for me Blake have served his prison sentence and become a free man afterwards if he could have lasted but instead because he fled to Russia. He was really not welcome back in the UK for the rest of his life and he died in Russia off the same way that Phil be dead, but I find it strange that somebody who wasn't sentenced to a jail sentence like philby and MacLean and Burgess could never come back. They were exiled effectively forever. Whereas a man who did get to jail. If only he could have seen that through he would have been a free man afterwards but perhaps the main reason he couldn't see that through is that he was given one of the longest jail sentences in British legal history. Which I've got written down here is 42 years, which was longer than it would be for killing. Somebody and George Blake absolutely did not kill anybody. Although they all say that don't they so George black artillery Mansions. Now this area of London used to be where Scotland Yard was. It used to be MI6. It's very close to the Palace of Westminster. Therefore. There are a lot of offices round here for the British government and interestingly very very recently in the last year or two. It's been announced that gchq had an office here besides and Ellis Hotel and near the old and my office building as well. It's also the previous home of the home office now the ministry of justice. So we always spend a lot of time in this area. You're definitely into the second half of the walk now, but we still have a lot of exciting exercise to see we have the Old mi-sex Saint James's Park to gchq and the foreign office more of that in part 3.

"Welcome to Spies of London the Westminster walk this walk begins at Pimlico Tube Station primarily because it's the nearest station to MI6 Vauxhall cross and it is therefore quite easy to get to for tourists particularly people who don't know London that well, there are buses as well serve the area of Pimlico quite well and yourself is a short walk from Victoria Station. So the first thing you'll notice when you arrive at Pimlico is there are a lot of exits or at least more than one and more than one exit, especially if it's on a different street.

"Welcome to Spies of London the Westminster walk. So I'm getting ready to record the Westminster walk. This is the one that begins at Pimlico Tube Station by the National Crime agency doubles back through Pimlico towards dolphin Square. That's an apartment building famous for spying and other things into the gardens opposite and then a look at the American Embassy the new American embassy at nine Elms a short Riverwalk a look at MI6. That's Vauxhall cross the current MI6 building which opened in 1994 carrying on along the embankment took a state and towards Tim's house the current home of MI5 and then walking through Westminster itself looking at Westminster school where Kim philby went Marshall Court which is friends with Maura Southfield the home office the new home office the old home office, which is now the ministry of Justice the home of George Blake santoni's Hotel the new Olde Scotland Yard, because it's not long. The headquarters of the British Union of fascists not necessarily in this order Broadway buildings, which is the former home of MI6. So you can contrast the kind of former. You would have seen or heard off of the old MI5 building on the Mets phone York, which I have recently which is like if your house on cars and string and then after Broadway buildings, we talk behind their into Queen Anne's gate where you see another month old even older headquarters of MI6 in Mansfield coming today an army office used by Clayton Powell and were down cockpit steps into some James's Park walk along the edge of Saint James's Park which was famous off buying in its own right and then finally standing outside the treasury in the foreign office to talk about the foreign secretary and the foreign office and how that relates to MI6 in particular and then if there's time you can take a walk down to the police memorial which is in the other colony of the horse guards area of Saint James's Park in the mouth. You can go home from the mail catching a bus in Trafalgar Square, or you can catch the tube from Westminster dog. So that's the basic outline of the walk the order changes and sometimes the direction changes. When I do this in person, sometimes I think it's good to start in the busy area and in the work gets gently quieter as it proceeds, but if you end up stranded in Pimlico, which has only one tube station, it's not enough great line. You have to go to Victoria and changing so on so that's why we start in Pimlico cuz that's kind of the easiest place to start because you literally outside each station and then I can leave you towards Saint James's Park which is essential part of London and very well served by buses. So there are some tips for you if you'd carrying this walk out in person or if you're interested in joining us off at B&B in the option. I'm not going to start recording episode one which starts at the National Crime agency tune in soon for this walk. home.

Expect this to be more along the lines of like three to five percent per year for the first number years just because it really is a fully rehab property so I think it actually should be actual lower number avenue after year four or five. Six seven. Eight It should be closer to like an eight percent and the average and that's for you know repairs and also putting away for reserves. But you know with no matter what property by I because we often buy Rehab Properties right now. My clients say we should expect to see a lower repairs number. But there's also a chance that we will see You know it's tenants. Things go wrong and it might go back up eight percent. He might have a bad year. And there's always stuff like for example and this property I mean on three months after I bought it I think it was the first noteworthy air had the snow company. Come out and their snow plow. Because there's a there's a four car parking on their snowplough somehow scooped up the water main or the water main lid that metal Liz that goes in the concrete because the previous owners did actually re. They put down new concrete on the road from looking at the photos and looking at myself. It looks like that the lip was not done correctly so that the metal plate was just slightly. So when the you know the metal snowplough scooped it up. It pulled away. Let turn into one of these silly fiascos where the city of Westminster came out. And you know. That lid was from the nineteen sixties. They'll make leads that size anymore so for about three months. There is just a whole the sidewalk while they're trying to figure out what to do. So we put a cone out there and I just hope that no one hurt themselves on it and luckily no one did but then after a couple of months of that they cannot and repaired it and responsible for patching the concrete around the To Patch you know. Twenty inches of concrete was a six hundred dollar job in soon after with concrete. That was a pain in the butt so I sure that story. Because there's always stuff that POPs with properties so that's still should fall below my five percent repairs maintenance for the air but may may go higher so I'd like to eight percent to do very conservative. Underwriting there is no. Hoa Added Real Estate. Taxes are three thousand five hundred ninety six dollars. My property insurance is about Fifteen hundred fifty so just under six hundred dollars. There are the water and sewer averages about so far about one twenty a month and so it's pretty low and you know part of the reason its lowest because there's a high efficiency Water plants in there and also have no lawn irrigation so You know probably actually. That number should be more like thirteen fourteen dollars for the air. Not The eleven hundred forty so wanting to be a few higher spreadsheet trash is about ninety dollars a month for trash and recycling. And there's a dumpster. That's I think picked up twice a month electric or I should say excel so all the unions have individual electrical meters five meters four for the properties and then one for the common areas for me the landlord by then. There's one water or water and sewer tap and one gas align so than I pay for the gas and the water heaters gas and the furnaces are gas so see a lot more expensive. Excel BILL IN THE WINTERTIME. When the water heaters and furnaces are running more of it looks like it should average out to about three thousand a year or so for the Communist cell bill for landscaping landscaping do that snow removal and there'll be some basic landscaping to do. I think we bat thousand bucks. A year is my estimate so going on onto the next tablet spreadsheet here for this rental analysis might total annual expenses are about twenty five thousand dollars that leaves me with a net operating income of just under fifty thousand dollars so they take my debt payment on their it comes out to be about forty two thousand dollars for the year so my annual cash flow before taxes about seventy five hundred dollars so that gives me a three point two percent cash on cash return and a five point eight percent cap rate so much more for. Capri person so I was like what the cap rates so having a you know a Rehab Multiunit. That's close to a high five cap rate. That's a really good deal in the current market so I was really happy with property color notes about here just kind of talk about numbers more. That's really interesting so I bought this in August of last year and I just recently finished a refinance on his property. I Andrew Interest Rates really dip their back in February or March. Can't quite remember when they dipped there awhile ago I refinance this property and I got down to a three point. Six two five percent interest rate. So I mean that's almost a point half drop so I had to bring some cash to closing order to pay for closing costs by the rate down a little bit so I think it was about eleven thousand dollars for closing to refinance. But here's the kicker that refinance is Gonna. Save me just over six hundred dollars. A month in principle interest payments. So that's about sending two hundred dollars a year so that's less than a two year payback period. And since I plan on his property for at least about seven and ten years It makes a lot of sense so with that right there. You can look at hates as me money. Or it increases my cash flow by about seven thousand dollars a year and that would Bring my Castro. Probably two fifteen to sixteen seventeen thousand dollars a year now kind of taking one more step back talking about my cash flow before this refinance. I ended about seventy four hundred dollars underwritten. I really expect to be closer to be a thousand dollars a month and this was before my refinance because I expect repairs may be much lower and also expect my actual property management fees be lower as well so if I actually lower those it should probably be closer by thousand dollars a month so I'm hoping for by can being the conservative long-term model it'll be maybe six hundred seven dollars a month or about seventy four hundred dollars year which I'm happy with. It always be rather be more considerate underwriting than be too liberal on there but now refinance. I mean that's going to be an extra seven eight thousand dollars. You save him so overall I really liked his property Very happy with is my ten thirty one exchange replacement so you guys have questions on this reach out to me if you WANNA see the spreadsheet reach out to me if you need help with understanding ten thirty one strange. Reach out to me. They're not you know they're not that hard to do. But there are a lot of moving parts and so one of those things we want to know everything before you start selling your replacement property because you're still eating parts downstream that if we get something backwards or we get pushed up against deadlines. That's where we can earn the difficulty. So thank you for listening Kennedy questions reach.

"Everyone Chris Lopez here and welcome back to another deal analysis. Episode this episode. I'll be talking about a townhouse house. Hack the up declined by in Westminster Colorado. So this House that closed in quarter one of twenty twenty so if a very high level overview this was a first-time homebuyer a new investor that we're helping the by their very first house AC and they wanted to go the house back. No matting around to start building. Their long term rental portfolio so plan there was to buy townhouse because it has a lower price point than detached houses rented a couple rooms lives there and then once he moved out having appropriate makes sense as a rental property and then repeat so the profile Var investor. Here is a young single person who just want to house act and he said Hey. I'm really young you know he's early twenties. I said how do as much house hacking newmains I can before I get older and get more established and get married and kids all that stuff. So he's GonNa very aggressive time line for going out there to do house. I know matting because he knows as he does a handful times now his forty year old self will be very very happy with his twenty two year old self and you know like a lot of people. He's very much into the Financial Independence Movement. So he wanted to minimize his expenses and since housing is one of your biggest expenses for most people house. Hacking is just a phenomenal way to do it. So another reason we preferred a townhouse was because the HOA would help with exterior maintenance and he was also playing utilizing the fha loan to minimize his down payment program. We're GONNA do a three point. Five percent down payment with fha. Now where do we find this property while should be no surprise at this point to my regular listeners? Out there that we found this on the MLS so to date every single house hack had no matter properly found has been on the MLS. And that's just because there's so many properties out there and we can also it also makes sense for buyers that are buying owner-occupied and here often first time home buyers and we want to make sure we use the standardized. Colorado contract and we have enough time to make sure it's the right property after while they're living there and Ezra future rental property so talking about the details of investment property. It's a townhouse. It's a three bedroom. Three bathroom in West Minister so north of Highway Thirty six near Federal Boulevard. And it's got a really good layout because it is a three stories. You know the the basement main floor upstairs up stairs are a master bedroom and bedroom downstairs. You have the kitchen and then that and the basement. There's a a bedroom down there with a full bathroom and it's pretty good separate living space. So they all share the common kitchen upstairs so the list price is was two hundred. Seventy nine thousand dollars nine hundred dollars. We purchase it for two hundred sixty nine thousand dollars so why we liked it. As I mentioned is a great lay out. The basement bedroom is a really really great layout for either the person to live there or out and have some separate space between the other roommates up their location worked for the client and it was completely movin. Ready so contract details. It was all market for thirty days before he looked at it and that tells us it was overpriced. And that's why we got the property below list price there so we like those properties we take them. And that's actually great news for us and our buyers so we got under contract for this price and that was a combination of it being overpriced alongside some of our secret sauce for getting things that are contract era also able to get the buyer. Six thousand dollars in seller credits. So did the inspection. They were really no major concerns at but we did they ask for a couple things in the cellar so we had a routine h VAC furnace Service cleaning so you know couple of dollars come out and have it serviced in clean and we did get the buyer a home warranty now financing overview as. I mentioned this is a Fha Loan. Suze will put three point. Five percent down and got an interest rate of three point three seven five percent so once we got past inspections appraisal came out and the appraisal came in at above contract price. So we're always happy when that happens because that means the buyers coming into some instant equity so concessions I was six thousand dollars and this was negotiate at the time of purchase. Not Do the inspection item resolutions since this.
