"Craig Singleton of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies because there is a new document from the FDD that speaks to much of the news cycle these last this last year of the pandemic and beyond the trade. Disputes between the US and its allies between the US and China. The new document Is an overall approach to international organizations entitled a Better blueprint for international organizations. Advancing America's interests on global stage many hands in this document, but Craig has authored free critical ones. We will begin with the World Health Organization. I mentioned others because there's more to learn the International Telecommunication Union, the International Civil Aviation Organization, the International Atomic Energy Agency, the International Criminal Court, all these documents all assembled in this Overall project, but the W H O Craig WHL I learned from you is a very well endowed organization. If a billion dollars means anything. $5.6 billion. Many member states contributing worldwide, a responsibilities and much in the news after the pandemic that we're still living in The puzzle here is with all that money and with all those member states. Why is it right now that its reputation is shaky? Did we know before the pandemic that there were troubles there? Thanks for having me John. Absolutely. When we look at the WHL and the United States is the top funder for the World Health Organization, contributing about $400 million a year of taxpayer funds. We represent 12% of the of the W H O s entire budget to give you a sense of how important the U. S contribution is but over time, and particularly with Covid 19. These sorts of global issues have exposed major weaknesses in the international community's pandemic surveillance system. They've raised important questions about China's efforts to fight global health standards. At the center of these debates. It's WHL, which is a U. N specialized agency. It has a long history of prioritising political over technical considerations, often resulting in very slow. Very ineffectual responses to outbreaks of deadly infectious diseases. And a lot of these recent breakdowns have occurred in tandem with China's growing U. N activism. When we sat back and we examined the whose response to Covid 19. We quickly saw parallels to the organization's deeply flawed responses to the 2000 and two SARS outbreak in China and the 2013 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. These commonalities included things like unexplained W. H O delays and officially declaring each outbreak China's repeated refusal to provide accurate, timely information about outbreaks occurring within their borders and even the Chinese Communist Party's consistent prioritization of regimes stability over global health. Coupled with China's dissemination of disinformation and misinformation, all of those issues have been further hindered by structural governance and priorities, Prioritization Deficiencies, which have persisted for years and in some cases for decades for the W H O. So a lot of these issues aren't particularly new the challenge going forward, though, as we remain engaged at the World Health Organization. Is using it as a multilateral platform to advocate for improved global health standards and to hold countries like China actually accountable. Yet engagement for engagement seek is going to do very little to prevent the next pandemic, And that's why we think the United States and its allies need to move very quickly right now to reform the organization and to address China's malign behavior. I'm going to recover what I remember from the Stars outbreak in 2000 and 2 2003. As I recalled, Taiwan was very efficient in closing down and Limiting exposure, but it costs a East Asia a lot of money. What I didn't pay attention to at the time was the significance of a response that China used in order to protect itself. My memory is that there were barriers put up in the roads. There were roadblocks raised by the villages to keep the stars out. I didn't think through that This is not a good beginning for a country that is going to be responsible in his and it's uh, and his membership with the W H O We know now that the new SARS CO. It's covid. The new SARS to outbreak called Covid 19 is in some fashion linked to the weakness in the Chinese system, but your criticism It goes far beyond weakness or a country that is not paying attention to its responsibility. So I asked this question since you've reviewed the material did anybody in 2000 to 2000 and three Raised the issue of China not being transparent about the virus about its origins about the damage done to its population were their doubts, then that China was a trustworthy partner. Absolutely. In fact, it was the World Health Organization that called out China for its cover up, which has been well documented since then, The Chinese immediately declared all information about the pandemic top secret it was not shared with international organizations it was not shared with even local health officials. One of the reasons is that the Stars outbreak occurred during a very sensitive leadership transition inside of China and stood to prevent bad news from escaping. They had a complete news lockdown on everything related to SARS, and, in fact, it later came out from people Liberation Army surgeon who went to the media and exposed to the cover up for what it is and said, We've been told to lie about our caseloads. We've been told to lie about our numbers, which sort of reveals the importance of Whistle blowers As we look to Covid nineteen's current origins, and whether there is anyone within the Chinese government apparatus. You can perform a similar task to at least shed light on what occurred in those early days Just because China has been so unwilling to talk about it, but also so eager to share and spread disinformation, for example, that Covid 19 came from a U. S lab right now you call for reforms. One of those reforms is not to use the U W H O to investigate the origins. What would it look like? Crane? Absolutely so right now. The World Health Organization does have an outfit that's sort of investigating internally. Uh, what occurred within the organization all of the different breakdowns, But I think one of the things we've sort of realized over the last year and a half is that the U. N and particularly the World Health Organization should not be investigating itself. There does need to be some sort of an independent panel. One of the things that we think is possible. If you use the Iraq oil for food program as a model back then it was widely understood that there was deep fraud within the U. N system as well as with a member state, a rogue member state in the case of Iraq and then we needed to have this fully independent panel to investigate it. And so we think that's a model going forward to look into not only the whose response but Beijing's violations of what's called the International Health regulations, the global treaty that governs Pandemic responsibilities. It isn't only China Gaming, the W H O You give an example of Syria, the failed state of Syria, the darkness visible of the Syrian civil war. Where the Syrian Ministry of Defense quite blatantly, is exploiting the wh ose responsibilities to provide blood bags. There is no enforcement mechanism is that the weakness we see here, the W. H O camp police itself. That's correct. It's it's the primary weakness of this organization. According to the W H O s Constitution, there is no means for the organization or member states like the United States to hold other countries, rogue countries like China or Russia accountable for their deceptions or their noncompliance. Nothing exists in that space. And so as we look at a country like Syria, which Shockingly, was just elected to the World Health Organization's executive board, its highest decision making body, and this is a country that's used chemical weapons on its own people. I think a lot of people international community were really taken aback that this sort of thing was allowed to happen. And as it relates to the W. H O in Syria in particular, you raise a great point. All of the W. H O s work in Syria to help get medical supplies to areas that are under siege is all funneled through the Syrian Ministry of Defense, and we know that they are, um, relocating supplies to their own people to members of the regime and that these items that are critical medical supplies are not making it anywhere to the people who are who actually need them. And so once again, I thought you start to see the weaknesses of these systems when there's no true accountability. And when the World Health Organization can actually get the supplies that it has to the people who need them. I'm speaking with Craig Singleton of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy. He, along with his colleagues have authored a series of studies of the W of the international organizations such as the W H O The document is meant to be used as a premier going forward in the 21st century. When we come back, we're going to turn to another organization, much in the news these last year as the World Trade Organization and then attention to The bizarre facts of the United Nations Human Rights Council. This is CBS.

Some of the hospitals were destroyed, others just damaged. He tells us what it was like. If we were in the operating room. We couldn't leave the patient even if our lives were in danger.

The really The most important thing about the fall of the Soviet Union was Chris Matthews, according to Chris Matthews. I'll tell you this West Virginia giveaway for getting the vaccine is pretty remarkable. It's not just guns. So though that's real nice. The whole lot of other stuff, too. If I lived in West Virginia get vaccinated again. I think what won't well, they're giving away guns and the governor. There is a Republican. He's a regular guy. They got that Joe Manchin. He's a Democrat is the senator he's you know, he's amazed in politics. We'll just say that So they have a drawing there in West Virginia, run from Father's Day. That's June 20th for Democrats and on August 4th, June 20th August Worth include. They got a variety of prizes and cash, firearms, even trucks. It's amazing stuff. They got great.

And I looked it up fewer than 3000. People in the state of West Virginia have had their deaths attributed to what we call the covert 19 from the city of Wuhan. In China, where the Communists run things. All right, let's get to some Anthony Fauci because Andy Fauci he's the owner of the Lord of all He surveys or something like that. Um But you can't necessarily believe the things that he says because over time what he's been saying, let's just be good. Most general generously described it as what he's been saying has evolved. The Democrats when they flip flop you remember when Barack Obama flip flopped on a variety of things like he was against same sex marriage very vociferously said as a Christian, you know, And then he was for it, and the news media applauded And they said, Well, he's evolved. Evolved show, I think might be kind of racist. But that's the news media for you, and when Democrats they reverse themselves to 1 80, the media says they've evolved right. A Democrat does that when a Republican doesn't he's a hypocrite and an idiot and he's flip flopped and you can't believe anything, he says from this point on, but Democrats evolve. That two parties to standards no waiting. No waiting whatsoever for you. But they're all kinds of remarkable stories. The Anthony Fauci stories Um Anthony Fauci Pandemic emails released under a Freedom Freedom of Information Act request. He's a government employee and all that. Coaches, correspondents from March and April of 2020. That's last year obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request offers a peek into his world during the frantic early days of the Corona virus crisis now That's the Washington Post. Spinning it form. Anthony Fauci is pandemic emails All is well despite some crazy people in this world. That's the actual headline and a couple of Democrats typed it up for the Democratic Party as the Corona virus pandemic engulf the world last spring because the Chinese lied about in the World Health Organization lied about and now they put Syria on their executive board. Because you know, Syria and health care, you know, go together like ham and hand grenades because they gassed their own people. And now they're on the United Nations, the World Health Organization's executive board Syria, Okay, That's why the United Nations and every organ beneath the United Nations has always been a complete joke. So, um The Washington Post Here they get so they get into this thing, and they they they're spending it for him. And they're saying all these e mails don't don't mean anything. They just You know, you've got one of the guys whose funneling the money from Laci's office to the Wuhan Institute of Realogy, sending Fauci and email thanking him. Thanking him for spinning the The origins. Of the covert 19 and suggesting it came from the wet market for which there is zero evidence. Zero evidence actual Evidence that you would bring into court. There is zero evidence that it came from the Wuhan wet market other than the fact that it's a filthy, disgusting place where no civilized person would eat right. But but never mind that They've had. And the Washington Post has sanitized the emails. And they're not, of course, providing the emails that actually matter where the back and forth is going on about the origin and thank you for spending at the Washington Post sanitized all that. On band. That's their job because they're not a news organization there. An appendage and engorged appendage of the Democratic Party. Alright Newsweek magazine Dr Anthony Fauci book scrubbed from Amazon. After E mail dump. This is kind of an amusing story because we don't live really in a free society.

Thank you for setting some time with us today, talking about all of it. Roy's grateful to get some other time. Oh, the journalism in going on over there. That's Nicole Wallace on MSNBC. She's their Republican host. Cab. Did you hear the speculate? It's like she was interviewing Elvis. There's stuff they What was that? I'm just I'm so excited here. Oh, my goodness. Gracious. Oh, he's you know, sometimes you read people's e mails and all, but this time, Wow. Even better meet again. I'm surprised you didn't bring up Morgan Freeman in her intro, you know, because that is how the left is covering this like, Oh, we've learned so many great things about Dr Fauci from these emails, So it's amazing and, you know, Look if we talk about accountability This. I think it plays a huge role here. How the press handles the release of these emails and what we've seen from outlets from Buzzfeed's MSNBC. They don't want to do any digging. They want to cherry pick through these emails to present the most positive picture of Fauci that they can do. They let him resign as a conquering hero. Is there actually so much pressure on him that he gets dismissed? Or did they let him write it out and call his own shots? What do you think? This is? D. C After all, Triple 86 30 W male, Joe, also in college Park, your next up here, thanks for calling. Thank you, Larry. And I tell you, I'm in college Park and I agree with Bob in college Park. I think that I think worst case scenario. He will be saying Andrew will be allowed to resign with all of 1000 whistles and everything and all the actual accolades and everything. But I don't know anything is gonna happen to him because he's too much of the dark. They They've made him too much of the darling of the left. And they would be. That would be your right that that left. We'll go after their own, really viciously. But right now they have put him on such a pedestal. They don't want toc shame themselves. They're they're in too deep with him. They're they're they're in bed with, And I think you're right, Joe. Absolutely, especially as when we point out that not only the media but also the president himself. Biden spent so much time invested in in having him be sort of the savior of it all. They needed Fauci to be this this Invisible specter that even in his emails, though, he says, I'm not being centered. I'm saying whatever I want that they needed to create this whole thing that Trump wasn't letting Fauci call the shots, and by the way, if you noticed, but she's not taking the podium much right now over at the Oval Office. He's that. What? What shots? Is he calling? He's doing softball interviews, so Well, we'll see Ben in Culpeper. Ben, You're next up here. You're also on a nail. Me, Larry. So my prediction is that Fauci gets appointed to be the secretary of state and then gets to run for president and Democrats, not bed. Mm hmm. And that said he dropped the mike. He's out Cam and is been smoking something that I don't think that's quite illegal in Virginia until July. The first I hope not. Alright. Maybe that I don't think that's gonna happen. Just cause Kamila won't allow it, right. Exactly. You want all of a sudden you want to see Fauci outlived his usefulness. There you go. That would do it. We've got Maura on what I believe to be the first vulnerability for one, Anthony Fauci. The walls seem to be closing in on Him And there is some senators were very interested in having him testify under oath again and explain some of the things he has said under oath in the past that seemed to contradict what he said in private emails. There's a word for that. It's perjury. So what happens with Anthony Fauci? Triple 86 30? W. M A. L.

"Into these executive orders yesterday, and we're just gonna do an overview because we have a lot of people are going to talk to getting into this a little bit more. Biden has an executive order that puts an end to what they're called. You know, the implement Trump Muslim ban which, of course, was not a Muslim ban it all But you know why? Why? Why would you let facts get in the way The president in 2017 signed an executive order suspending entry into the U. S. For individuals from Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Yemen in Iran, mostly Muslim countries, but that it was updated to include North Korea and Venezuela, and it was expanded again in January. 2020 to include six more countries. So it's hardly a Muslim ban and you know where those countries came from. Where that list of countries come from state sponsors of terrorism. Yeah, but specifically what administration the Obama that came from the Obama administration. Obama administration produced this list of countries in other words, like these are countries they sponsors of terror. And this concerns about how much terrorism comes out of these countries and the threat they pose to the United States. And again, the majority of the world's Muslim population was not impacted whatsoever. At all by this, that there was no bands whatsoever on anybody on the basis of faith, and in fact, the majority the world's Muslims could still come to the United States by normal means. Those specific countries were blocked because of the terror threat that they posed in the eyes of the Obama administration. So that's what the Trump administration did. They relied on that and now this is the clever word game. We get to play because then Joe Biden, who served in that same administration gets to come along and say were overturned in the Muslim ban, like Wait a second. All those countries with countries you picked out Yeah, exactly. Um, we're also re engaging in the World Health Organization. They're gonna work with the World Health organization and our partners to strengthen and reform the organizations. They're gonna fix it. And Dr Fauci leading the administration's delegation to the World Health Organization executive board meeting, and I believe you said, Vince, that they're they're probably already there, right? I just saw his remarks. I don't know if he's actually given the speech yet. But the White House just sent out his whole speech, and in it, he's like gushing about being able to work with the World Health Organization again. He's so happy to be back with his dear friend. Those were his words, Dear friend, Dr Ted Rose. S so it's it's just grotesque. And the truth is, of course, the world authorization screwed up the global pandemic big time by lying on behalf of China in the early days, and how do you stop a pandemic? You get it is right at the very beginning. That's how we have any chance and the W H O screw that up, and as a result, it's been a catastrophe for the planet. Also, the president rejoined the rejoined the Paris climate accord Now, apparently it takes 30 days for that to go into effect. They don't want you just just jumping in right away and rejoining. They want you to think about it. So if 30 days and you could still you can, you know? Cancel your membership fees after you know if you do it within 30 days, Otherwise, you know you're sucked him for an hour. And like a gym membership. It just keeps renewing nearly And they just keep doing your credit card. And you know it was the terrible thing about this is it does nothing to stop China's pollution of the planet. So, therefore the one of the biggest polluters in the planet China, we don't do anything to have reined them in. And then we unilaterally destroyed. We heard American workers. We fire up the fire American workers. So this is one of those proposals Day one. Fire American workers and we're off. Yep, exactly And and then the unions. The unions are going to be all upset with him. But ah, well, hey, also wanted to roll back the Trump President Trump's environmental actions, and that includes revoking the presidential permit that was granted to the Keystone XL pipeline. And so there you go. You talk about canceling American jobs. That's gonna be a problem, but he His people saying, But you know what this is going to do is going to create good union jobs and advance environmental justice. Well, it's not going to create union jobs for the construction workers who were going to construct the pipeline right, well the union's union jobs for them. The unions fought to get the Keystone XL pipeline. The unions wanted the pipeline because it created thousands of jobs. So now what's gonna happen is people are going to be fired. So so again. This is enough. This is instantly a job killing exercise instantly a job killing exercise and whose interests do it Serve? Not not not workers, not blue collar jobs, not serving the blue collar guy. Not at all. Yeah, he is also with the census. We talked about the census and how they didn't meet the deadline that President Trump had given them. He wanted for them to be able to suss out in the in the count. Illegals versus legals and people who are here legally versus people who are here illegally saying that you know if you're here illegally, you don't deserve representation in Congress. That's that's not fair. Because then states like California get extra representation just because of their high number of illegal immigrants who are living that state and that then cancels out legal representation in states with lower illegal populations. You're you're canceling out American citizens and their votes. And they managed to not meet that deadline. They're like, Yeah. Really Sorry. Not going to get it done on time. And so we're gonna count non citizens in the U. S census thing, Okay, But just just to be really clear. We already count non citizens appropriately in the senses. So the wording that the Biden administration is using and I've seen some of the TV networks uses. Oh, now we're gonna count non citizens again. There was no change on that. If you are illegal immigrants to the United States, you are accounted in the United States senses if you s o non citizens recounted. This is all sleight of hand is meant to suggest that Trump was somehow big IDs and a phobic. He was only counting American citizens and nobody else that was never true. That was never true. So this is not a reversal. It is maintaining actually where we've been. The only exception is that Trump was trying to prevent as married is that illegal immigrants from being counted? Yeah. And on and on. We're going to delve into a lot of these. Coming up in the show. 6 35 Congressman James Comber will be joining us. We'll talk about what Rejoining the World Health organization means to the United States. 705 Daniel Turner with power the future on how killing the XL Keystone Pipeline is gonna affect American jobs. Tom Woman joins us at 7 35 on the executive orders regarding immigration on what that is going to do to America. So a lot coming up. It's a really packed show for you seven. Excuse me 5 23 7 home. Laura 5, 23 and W. M a 105.9.

"world health organization executive board" Discussed on A Podcast of One's Own with Julia Gillard

"My guest today is dying Sally Davies. Who until October last year was the chief medical officer for England the my senior government advisor on health matters? She was the first and only woman to ever hold this raw. She's also a member of the World Health Organization Executive Board and now serves as master of Trinity College at the University. Kind Bridge Sally. Until recent weeks many people would not have thought much about the chief medical officer. Now we find ourselves hanging off their every word and I met a way we are in the world. Can you describe the role of the chief medical officer what it was like to hold that job? Well it was an incredible honor and to bear flagbearer. I think as a woman actually does put more pressure on. You definitely meant that. I was called the Chief. Nanny of the nation which was sexist. But what we have to do is think hard about the public's health and most of the time for me in Britain that was not about the NHL services. It was more about the preventive health health improvement and health protection and so of course lamentin agencies came onto that I was the one that with the backup of scientists had to advise government. When we have the NAVA joke poisonings in two thousand nine ten. I was not there for the first wave of the flu. Pandemic I was actually running research the chest but I was there for the third wave when we had even more deaths and drank back from holidays by ministers for a bowler in West Africa to talk about what needed doing where we responding effectively and to talk to the public. Some people call the roll. The nation's doctor so it's complex because it moves around and I'm a hematologist specialist in sickle. So and then. I became a researcher so I have a broad background but I'm rather pleased that my successor is an infectious disease specialist so he has called the president horrors of covert and he is expert. And can you imagine what the Chief Medical Officer in the U. K? Or INDEED OTHER CHIEF. Medical officers around the world are going through now. Can you give us an insight into what would it be like well? It's very pressured because what you're trying to do is stay on top of the signs on one side. What should we be doing the services on what's going on and the limitations because no one is prepared for something as bad as this and then the crushes which come from ministers because they clearly want sorting out and they want to show they're in control the media which again is pushing and raking over every little thing and the public demands? Put that beside your own desire to get it right and to save lives and it's a very pressured role you refer them to people not saying something like this coming. Did you ever imagine that the world would be where we are today? Well we did a lot of practice. As did you in Australia of pandemic planning but it was always a flu. So that tastes in respiratory born virus and we thought that would standards in good stead. I think it's shown that we didn't practice everything we didn't think through the testing well enough and the other things. We clearly didn't have ready but would anyone have ready. It's a question of how much clamming can you do and we did a lot and we some really good planning song quite proud of what we did but then how fleet of foot can you be when it happens and how anticipate can you be as you watch it develop and what's giving you hope at the moment on one thing that certainly in world war odd claims the scientific and medical communities coming together and focusing on the research and vaccine other things that are going to make a profound difference at all of that. What escaping you spirits up? Well the first thing is of coal some actual nature that we historically have epidemics and pandemics and survival of the fittest as nations and society. We come through. Interestingly here. I am sat in Trinity College and the where the plagues in the mid sixty and hundreds. Which aren't she because we close down as we have done now. Pasta spy but newt of gravity fame is famed for having. Actually it's not quite correct story having discovered gravity during one of the plagues. I think the way people are coming together whether it's about the sun some working together on treatments vaccinations whether it's in the service stories of heroism of nurses doctors on the front line but also the volunteering the support from people in the community for the vulnerable taking medicines. Taking food and everything. So it's how society is coming together and working together whether it's on Sundance or to support others. Isn't that wonderful? The way it's happening and I am loving the means and the little videos and everything on facetime what SAF and zoom I mean are now doing masses of things by zoom. We were cooking supper with our daughter on zoo last night. She was cooking hers in the House. And we were cooking up unfortunately onsumer. You can't lane in enticed they can't particularly better. I'm GonNa take you back now to your ties when you grew up and when you first start to think that you might want to be doctor because I'm sure one of the things that struck people as we've watched the coverage of the pandemic is had. Jane ended idiots most of the experts most of the politicians or their podiums breed. I telling us what's going to happen next all men so as a girl growing up. What made you decide you so I wanna be a doctor. Well actually. I'm an auditory because I didn't know what to do. I got to the age of sixty nine had quite decent exam results. I was better at biology. Had I remember my mother saying you? Good biology you quite like people that you do mince father who was a medic. No one else in the family so I talked to him and it seemed a good idea so I went off to do it and actually after the first couple of years and it's on record I found it quite brutalizing. I think in the way that the doctor's now will find it. The people were. We had Russian health system particularly at that time in the mid seventies where I can remember. Oh young woman. For instance. Not being allowed renal dialysis because there was a choice between patients. And she didn't win. Am I thought this was so unfair? And how many things were handled. I was so brutalized I actually gave up for four years and then giving up discovered I had of the -cation and I think what our young doctors are going through. The moment that was on the front line is very similar. Not Enough ventilators. Who Do you choose seeing? People die in circumstances where you can't hold their hand and their families can't be there I think they're experiencing some of that brutalizing and harrowing things that I saw in the early and mid seventies and I fear many of them will say after it's over. I can't do this. I hope like me I went off. Married diplomat went Madrid as a diplomat's wife. I wasn't the good diplomat's wife but I realized I wanted to do meant and then came back really energize and I hope that if they do give up then come back energized when they've found themselves again. Do you think we'd be a bit better now at supporting the main to help us. And we'RE OBEYING OF AIR FRONTLINE. Doctors Enosis as they go through something like this. Would they be more understanding? About how spirit crushing making. Those choices are literally between. Who lives in dollars? I think we're more understanding but talking to on younger daughter WHO's a first year doctrine. The front line they are so stretched so rushed that the extra services aren't available so it is a question of kindness in a team and supporting the team. I had that too. It wasn't enough for me. I would rather a gentle soul that stage. I don't know I think we're going to have to do an awful lot of catching up later on and when you look back on those days I mean. Brutalizing is a very strong word. Was that really perspective about the system. Did you think that they was agenda? Element and win offered in your life that if I said to yourself. Jay is something different that happens because I'm a woman. Oh the walls gendered element was in medical school. I think thirteen women at the year of one hundred ten. I mean looking back very inappropriate thing so when we did surface anatomy I was made to stand on a stool while they drew on my legs where the muscles were. I mean you know and I thought that was normal at that stage but you wouldn't allow that now getting back to starting on the walls. The word very few women. The nurses were not used to women. Doctors remember the system. I I would saying well. You think I'm here to ally was no. I don't and she said you're here to make mighty and it was actually quite difficult environment and I was definitely Baltimore. The pecking order. But I came from a fairly sparky academic background and my father who was a theologian taught me that. I should ask and challenge. In order to get the right answer I mean at the age of six challenging bishops. How do you know God exists and things so? Perhaps I was better prepared. The many women would be in that. I was prepared to challenge and push back but it wasn't easy. Am I do think it was a agenda sexist environment and can you give us an example of one moment of pushing back of challenging? Do Love the image of you as a sixty road. You know it Sunday lunch challenging bishop but in the context of Medical Education or medical practice. Well I mean just silly things like I remember. I did something on one of my early wall drown. Something consultant said. Miss Davis I said in front of the patient and the whole team. I appreciate you think have got this wrong and I'm really sorry but I know that when you're happy with me you call me Sally when you content you call me. Dr Davis Miss Davis not acceptable. And he said Oh. I didn't realize I did that. Said you into the men interesting. It didn't again. Oh so go to resort. Yes I wouldn't be invited to everything because the boys were going for a beer sitcoms. I can't stand beer and I didn't like pubs because of the smoking them so I didn't mind in one sentence but on the other side. We all know that a lot of medical networking used to take place in the pub over a beer so I was being excluded though I think the funniest was my hematologist professor who I was very fumbled. But he would do this long ward round on one morning of the week and at a certain point he would walk into the gents and continued discussing the patients and my friend and I she she and I would stand outside. Arms crossed thinking. What are they saying about patients? We're looking off. And I got so fed up I took to propping. Open the door with my foot and continuing the conversation with the professor while he was in the Jen's that stopped it..

She she and I would stand outside. Arms crossed thinking. What are they saying about patients? We're looking off. And I got so fed up I took to propping. Open the door with my foot and continuing the conversation with the professor while he was in the Jen's that stopped it. That's a fantastic. He meach to now. You've said about being a woman that you think your gender means that you bring anything special to the role for example role as chief medical officer beyond the willingness to take a more collaborative approach and perhaps a relative lack of a guy. What did you mean by that? A lot of men who achieve these great offices set out to I mean I do meet young. Men Are not met a young woman. Actually who say to me? I want to be a chief. Medical officer said well. Perhaps you should not only enjoy the journey but recognize that. It's an issue of timing. Who else is around? And you may not make. But they're invested in the office. I wasn't it was only about a year before the post came up when my predecessor said to me sally you'd be a good. Cmo Why didn't you apply? When I go in about a year. And I said why would I want it? We had this very funny discussion. So it wasn't. I was invested in the office or had an EGO. In fact I don't my father and mother as I said. We're academics and they brought me up to believe that you should have a really good debate. Does matter of it's an argument but the debate. Get to the best answer. So I brought this very academic research background in and in fact what my team said was I would get to a conclusion quite quickly. But if they had a better argument I would shift and I was always debating thinking aloud and everything and that isn't an ego driven way of doing it so it was a different style. It was very I set out to make evidence my U. S. P. and to be collaborative and debating and then if a decision needed taking I would take it. So that was kind of different approach. Much more academic approach and just unpacking some of that..
